As we learn more about the maturity of their plans and the capability of their weaponry, the Najibullah Zazi terrorist plot against our subway system is a stark reminder that Al Qaeda is a resilient organization - one that has maintained an ability to recruit and plan operations while its objective to strike New York City remains unabated.
