An advisory has been sent to law enforcement officials advising them to be vigilant about train security based on information uncovered after the death of Osama bin Laden, officials said.
Officials stressed the advisory is general in nature and the information apparently uncovered from the bin Laden compound dates back more than a year.
According to NBC News, U.S. officials say they have not found reference to specific plots. Instead, they say they've found what they call "aspirational" items -- events al-Qaida operatives were interested in trying to make happen.
A government advisory sent Thursday says that as far back as February 2010, al-Qaida was contemplating "an operation against trains at an unspecified location in the United States on the 10th anniversary" of the 9/11 attacks.

This is a transparent ploy to increase TSA presence at rail stations. We need more government workers like 0sama needs another hole in the head.
This so the TSA can start strip searching 6 year olds at train stations.
They found a downloaded Kindle book he bought from Amazon for his kid: “The little choo-choo that could”
“This is a transparent ploy to increase TSA presence at rail stations. We need more government workers like 0sama needs another hole in the head.”
Yes, and I’m sure they’ll manufacture something if they need too.

“This is a transparent ploy to increase TSA presence at rail stations.”
Yup. Never let a good crisis go to waste.
On the other hand, a great reason to avoid building “high speed rail”
It sounds like old intel. Now big sis Janet Ice Cream will be frisking everyone on amtrack.
Duh...all modes of transportation are at risk from muslim terrorists, anytime, anywhere. The crime is our govt allowing them to be here, to execute their evil deeds.
Strip searching us, our grandmas, and our children, is not due vigilance.
Due vigilance would be denying entry, and protecting our borders. Due vigilance would be sending muslims in the US packin, til this war is over.
For those who might find this solution a bit extreme, recall those muslim terrorists involved in 911, came here legally. They simply flew right into country, with the necessary paperwork.
We will never win the WOT, til our govt accepts the fact, Islam is not a religion of peace. Until then, we are all at risk to be blown to tiny bits of flesh and bone, anytime, anywhere.
Political correctness, and appeasement, will get us all killed. Fight the war on terror as if it is a war. Otherwise, live in fear, be strip searched, lose freedom, and eventually concede to sharia law, in the USA.
“I continue to pray for The United States of America! “
As do I. We are not a lost cause, yet.

Somewhere Willie Green is crying in his beer.
Yes here comes the TSA. Sexually assaulting you for your own good.
Beware of those who drape towels over their heads and smell of goats.
