BBC News - 9/11: Clinton says Al-Qaeda behind New York threat Beeb News is obsessed with pending terror attacks in New York city courtesy of "specific, credible but unconfirmed report". It's spent the majority of the afternoon interviewing pissed off New Yorkers who have been trying to do their best John Smeaton impression and failing miserably. Apparently both New York and DC are under threat and somebody in the heirarchy is convinced this is going to go down. So vigilance has been asked of US citizens and security levels have been stepped up. Now I'm no terrorist and I'm not very clever but in light of all this why bother planning the attack on the anniversary? Wouldn't you EXPECT the country to be at it's most vigilant then? Why attack New York and DC? What's wrong with a few blokes with AK's wandering around Chicago's downtown area? Ack - what do you lot imagine will happen on the 11th? Anything at all?
