9/11 Car Bomb Threat May Be Tied to Al Qaeda Leader Ayman al-Zawahri

New details are being revealed about a credible, but unconfirmed terror plot on the anniversary of 9/11. A memo from the Department of Homeland Security and FBI reveals that the method of the attack would be a car bomb in either New York or Washington, D.C. Also, new reports are saying that the threat may be linked to Ayman al-Zawahri, who took over as the leader of Al Qaeda after Usama bin Laden’s death.

Catherine Herridge reports that the memo released by the DHS and FBI confirmed that FBI and intelligence community are seeking a handful of potential operatives, possibly American citizens. The memo reads, in part:

“such attacks may involve operatives carrying U.S. documentation. The attacks would be intended to cause panic within the public and disarray among first responders.”

The intelligence is not more specific than to provide the possible timing of the attack this Sunday, the possible location of New York or Washington, D.C., and that the attack would be a car bomb.

The source of this information is a single source who has a track record with the intelligence community.

The bulletin includes specific references to Faisal Shahzad, the American of Pakistani descent who attempted to ignite a car bomb in Times Square in May of last year. While the bomb failed to detonate, it was seen by Al Qaeda as a somewhat successful attack because they were able to get an American citizen to train in Pakistan.
