al-Qaida – are U.S. trains the next target?

Via: AP

As of February 2010, the terror organization was considering plans to attack the U.S. on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

One idea was to tamper with an unspecified U.S. rail track so that a train would fall off the track at a valley or a bridge, according to a joint FBI and Homeland Security bulletin sent to law enforcement officials around the country Thursday.

The al-Qaida planners noted that if they attacked a train by tilting it, the plan WOULD ONLY SUCCEED ONCE because the tilting would be spotted the next time.
