Al-Qaeda Plotting Destruction

Well, no surprise here, as I firmly believe they will attempt another strike against the United States. According to other news reports; specific areas in the United Kingdom are also targeted. It has also been suggested the terrorists seek to strike at a vulnerable time as during the transition between the U.S. presidents (President George W. Bush and President-elect Barack Obama). As a nation we must never let our guard down. I do believe there are times the terrorists deliberately circulate rumors, but all of these threats have to be taken very seriously.

US Facing Second Wave Of 9/11 Attacks

Al-Qaeda is reportedly planning a terrorist attack against the United States which will "outdo by far" the attacks of September 11 in 2001.

Arab newspaper Al-Quds Al-Arabi in London reports a senior Yemen official close to Al-Qaeda as warning of a new wave of terror attacks against the western nation.

The source, who is not named, is quoted as being "very close to Al-Qaeda"

The newspaper is edited by Abdel al-Bari Atwan, who was the last journalist to edit Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in 1996.

The newspaper report, contained on the front page, suggests bin Laden has ordered a large scale attack against the United States which would "outdo by far" the attacks of September 11.

It comes as reports in Britain say there is clear evidence that thousands of extremists are living inside the United Kingdom.

In a message to loyalists, bin Laden is reported to have asked that his followers ignore all efforts to reconcile with Governments and other political parties - in effect keeping extremists isolated.

The newspaper's source said it was likely a sign of an imminent attack may be sent within the coming weeks.

The September 11 attacks against the United States killed nearly 3,000 people.
