Al Qaida Planning "Large Operation in America"

According to the website an Al Qaida Internet site reported last week that terrorists are planning a major attack in the United States in the coming weeks.

The posting Jan. 12 stated in a message titled "A Large Operation in America, God Willing," stated that the upcoming attack was imminent and other participants chastised the writer for tipping Al Qaida's hand.

Counterterrorism analysts said the threat could be real or Al Qaida deception designed to test U.S. security by announcing an planned attack and observing the level of increased security.

For those seeking more information, the author of the posting said they should be patient but assured forum members that "the lions have taken off and you will see [the proof] in the coming weeks."
