Even more
awful terrorism-related news today, as the FBI has recently issued an alert that “al-Qaida suicide bombers were contemplating an attack on New York’s mass-transit systems during the holiday season.”

The would-be attacks are being described by law enforcement as “plausible, but unsubstantiated.”

No futher details have been made available, and no arrests have been made. Still, “Department of Homeland Security spokesman Russ Knocke said the warning was issued ‘out of an abundance of caution going into this holiday season.'”
