Here’s disturbing blurb from the AP I came across today:
Federal authorities are warning law enforcement personnel of a possible terror plot against the New York City subway system during the holiday season.
An internal memo obtained by The Associated Press says the FBI has received a “plausible but unsubstantiated” report that al-Qaida terrorists in late September may have discussed attacking the subway system.
Anti-terror agencies say they have no specific details to confirm the plot has moved “beyond aspirational planning,” but are issuing the alert out of concern that an attack could come during the holiday season,” warns the memo, which is dated Tuesday.
While federal agencies often issue all sorts of advisory warnings, the language of this one is particularly forceful.
Goooood times. So in addition to battling the tourists on 5th Avenue, and trying not to kill yourself inside Toys R Us, you now have to work about getting blown up on the subway.
I have to say, I did not notice any additional security in the subway system today.
Would now be a good time for the terrorists to attack? Probably. The subway will be at it’s peak volume all December long.
Then there’s the Presidential transition. Bush already has one foot out the door. He’s in no position to be able to make long term decisions appropriately because he won’t have to deal with the consequences. All he will have to do is make it through the following couple weeks and then it’s Obama’s problem to deal with. It’s probably the time that the country will be weakest.
Ho ho ho.

I’d be more worried about lack of A/C and the dudes that spread their legs and take 3 seats as if they were hung like rats.
Seriously, nothing’s gonna happen, the terrorists will probably suffocate after sitting next to the dude with no deodorant 🙂
There is extra added security on the subways, you don’t really notice it but it is definitely there, its always been there. And all that terrorist talk is only because Obama is coming into the White House soon. They want to put fear into him, they want to make him cringe, they want to wipe the smile off his face but their threats are just talk and nothing else.
It just wouldn’t be the holidays in NYC without a terror warning. Good thing that I have my broomstick ready and can avoid the mass transit system.
People are jealous of New York City. Plain and simple.
