Big Apple Terror?
Sources: Al Qaeda Plotting to Attack New York City Corporations
ABCNEWS.com

N E W  Y O R K, July 31, 2004? ABC News has learned that federal and New York City officials have received credible intelligence that al Qaeda has been plotting to carry out suicide attacks on corporations based in the city.

Sources at several law enforcement agencies tell ABC News that an "overseas source" has provided the information about the threat to New York and that it is more significant than the usual "chatter" intercepted from likely terrorists that has prompted warnings in the past.

Officials from dozens of local and federal agencies met into the night Friday and again this morning.

"Intelligence reporting indicates that al Qaeda continues to target for attack commercial and financial institutions, as well as international organizations, inside the United States," the New York City Police Department said in a statement released today on the "ongoing al Qaeda threat."

"The NYPD recommends that corporate and institutional security directors review their protection of HVAC systems, parking installations, and security in general," the statement added. "The alert level for New York City remains unchanged at 'orange' or 'high.'"

Border Worries

Intelligence sources say al Qaeda plans to move non-Arab terrorists across the border with Mexico.

Authorities already have in custody a woman of Pakistani-origin arrested after crossing into Texas. She carried a South African passport with several of the pages torn out, $7,000 in cash and an airplane ticket to New York.

New York is already on heightened alert for the Republican National Convention, which meets at Madison Square Garden in a month and will bring scores of high government officials to town.

The sources tell ABC News that Wall Street firms may be among the targeted U.S. corporations based in New York City. Which corporations or how many may be targeted has not been revealed.

Suicide Truck Bombings

Particularly disturbing to authorities were the intelligence reports that the attack may involve one or more suicide truck bombings, a tactic never seen in the United States, but one widely used by terrorists elsewhere.

"I think they want to try and shake our psyche again," says Jerry Hauer, an ABC News consultant and former director of New York City's Office of Emergency Management. "And I think the easy types of attacks right now are car bombs, truck bombs."

Law enforcement officials acknowledge such bombs are extremely difficult to prevent.

As to the timing of any planned attack, sources say it could take place between now and Election Day in November.

As the government tries to verify the reports of the threat, there are no plans to raise the national threat level, a senior Bush administration official tells ABC News.

ABCNEWS' Pierre Thomas and Bob Jamieson contributed to this report.

If an attack has to happen, I hope the attackers are dumb enough to do it before November. Unless it comes as a result of a major administration screwup, it's practically a guarantee of a Bush reelection.

I'm no longer as sure of that as I once was. Kerry's not-quite-spoken promise to "make all this war stuff go away" is very appealing to an ever-growing segment of the electorate. A repeat of the Spanish election debacle is not out of the question.

I know that they still keep talking about airplanes, but this is the sort of attack that is more realistic. A few rogue individuals laidened with explosives walking into lobbies and blowing themselves up in 8 to 9am hour.

Only information really needed to pass along is the date and rough time frame, if you wish to have something semi large. Next to impossible to stop the "lone wolf"....

I don't know if this report is true, but this is the sort of thing that I think is far more plausible than anything else.

Yes, unlike the spineless voters in Spain, the US will rally behind our leadership against an aggressor. Of course you will still have your core "qnybody but Bush" wacko's, but they will be reviled like the scum they are, once the rest of Joe Sixpack sees that they hope for the destruction of the US

If Kerry were to be elected, you could bet that the terrorists would strike hard and probably soon after the Inaguaration because they would want to see how he would respond to attacks.

They already know how Bush responds...but they've said they want to disrupt the election season, so maybe this has to do with that.

Plus, they say the target is NYC. Since the Convention is to be in NYC, an attack at this time might result in a change of plans for the RNC Convention.

Considering that Kerry refuses White House intelligence briefings and says he is relying on his own people, I'd like to know who those people are and what information they have. Can we blame him if there's an attack? After all, he hasn't warned us.

"A repeat of the Spanish election debacle is not out of the question.

You got that right. Should an event occur there will be immediate calls from the Hillary and others left for us all to "come together and not politicize this". The left and media would immediately set out politicize it - with charges like "all that $ spent and what did it gain us? XXX dead?", and "they are clearly in no better control of the situation than before 9/11", and "the war is here not in Iraq"...

Do we REALLY need another attack in America to solidify a Bush win? WHY? Wasn't 9/11 enough to understand that THEY WANT US DEAD? That GW Bush is the answer to our safety?

People, I guess, are more into who the next American Idol is going to be than worry about the real threat against us. That's comforting.

Is it just me, or does this smell like something quite different and more urgent that the many other threats we've heard about since 9/11? I've got a bad feeling about this...

Many non-Mexicans have already come across the border. Many non-Mexicans have already been apprehended coming across the border. But the real question is: How many non-Mexicans got across the border without being apprehended?

Yet, GWB and most Washington politicians still won't make a concerted effort for border control. They keep pandering to illegals. They continue the spin the the Mexican illegals are only taking jobs Americans won't do. (BS).

Didn't the authorities pick off a terrorist in Texas with a plane ticket for NYC a week or two ago? Then there was that flight from Chicago that was obviously cased by an AQ team. IMO, they are going to try to hit the Republican Convention, by ground and possibly by air, while GW is there. Presumably, they will have secondary targets if they can't get close enough to the convention center.

Just saw on ABCNews that credible information has been found regarding suicide bombers blowing up major corporations, including the Stock Market, in NYC. They said that the attempt will be make very soon.

If this happens, it would guarantee a Bush landslide.

From the ABC story:

"Plans to?" Hell, they already are! Probably hundreds of them by now. Go here and look at all the articles posted recently on FR about this problem.

We can't blame John sKerry for this, but President Bush could lock down the border tighter than a drum in a matter of hours if he wanted to.

I am in total agreement. If there's a major attack between now and November 2, who benefits will depend on who best spins the story.

If it happens on November 1 and there's no time to spin, all bets are off.

Maybe, but very difficult to do at just about all of the major buildings in Manhattan these days.

As for the NY Stock Exchange, you can't even walk close to the place without proper credentials and ID. The Federal Reserve Bank? Their police force is constantly on patrol -- both on foot and in cars (I see them drive down my block every night) -- both on the perimeter of the building and around the neighborhood (which is where I live) with powerful-looking machine guns and deadly serious looks on their faces.

Attacks by individual suicide bombers targeting public places (like malls) are almost impossible to prevent unless law enforcement gets very lucky. On the other hand, the terrorists probably know that they are damaging their own cause by this tactic. Imagine the backlash against Arabs & Muslims in this country if suicide bombing is tried here, even on a small scale! They will either leave or be lynched.

That is what the Dims will do. They have laid all the necessary foundation. Actually, at this point a reaction such as you suggest is probably the only chance the Dims have to defeat GW, despite the hundreds of millions that will be spent and the billion dollars worth of media support they will receive.

Yep. At least 30%. They're the extremely frightened ones who are all concerned about their own individual safety. They'll bow to Allah in a heart beat if they think it will stop a Muslim from hurting them personally. These are the people on the far left - especially Hollywood (They're the biggest cowards of them all).
