    Neither the location nor the target of a potential attack is known, “but the intent seems clear,” Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said on ABC’s “This Week”: “The intent is to attack Western, not just U.S., interests.”

    The warnings of a possible terrorist plot come at an opportune time for the National Security Agency, which has recently come under fire after the disclosure of surveillance programs that critics say threaten the privacy of millions of U.S. citizens.

    In the days immediately after the N.S.A. revelations began, some American officials warned that terrorist leaders had already changed their communication methods and patterns of as a result of the exposure the revelations had brought. But the N.S.A.’s ability to intercept the recent discussions about plots seems to indicate that American spy agencies have not been hindered as much as some have asserted.
