Intelligence from both the FBI and CIA indicates that al Qaeda is preparing to conduct a major attack that will cause mass casualties, like the September 11 attacks, according to officials.

I think unfortunately these attacks are indeed very likely and these continuing drip-drip news reports are deliberate to prepare us psychologically.

It would be nice if the gubmint would level with us and lay out a plan of action and give us the facts as opposed to this random drip of info. It seems extremely ad hoc at the moment.

If your following the series 24, you know the President has told the public all they 'need' to know due to the fact there was not enough time to evacuate LA and causing panic when the nuke may be removed, would kill more than not. So....Keifer did say he gets the stories from everyday news.

What is the "series 24" and where do I find it?

I am afraid that you may be right, that even if the gov knows the city to be attacked, trying to evacuate it is just not feasible. You mentioned LA, the place would just become a huge parking lot, with everyone watching the nuke from their cars, I think that people would have a better chance of surviving at home, where they may have some supplies.

Sorry, I don't have a clue. But I expect some others do, or maybe the Moderator can keep this on top of the breaking news. I don't know how the bump lists work.

Thanks, I'll check! That nuke in LA really makes my day, since I live here. :(
While everyone thinks they will strike in NY, they could come and blow up LA instead. After all, they are looking for soft targets.

If there is an attack of this nature in the US, I would not want to be a middle eastern looking person living here.
