FBI disrupts New York City tunnel plot

NEW YORK - Authorities have disrupted planning by foreign terrorists who wanted to attack the New York City-area transportation system, the federal government announced Friday.

The planning appeared to be in the early stages, and the tunnels and other transportation routes weren't believed to have ever been at serious risk.

"We have disrupted a terrorist network that was in the planning stages of an attack," the FBI and Department of Homeland Security said in a statement.

Officials said the FBI had been monitoring Internet chat rooms and cited the arrest of a key suspect by Lebanese authorities as a significant break in the investigation.

Lebanese authorities, working with U.S. law enforcement agencies, arrested an al-Qaida operative who admitted to plotting a terror attack in New York City, a senior Lebanese security official said Friday.

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing, said the arrest was made a month ago. The suspect was identified as Amir Andalousli, but his real name is Assem Hammoud, a Beirut native, the official said. The official said he was an al-Qaida member and had confessed to the plot.

Well I suppose that the libs and democrats will believe that it was Bush's fault that these terrorist scum where in our country. I commend our great hero's who are fighting these people everyday and are the ones keeping us safe. It curious that they would attack New York, aren't all those Senators like Clinton anti-war, and for trying to give Al-Qaeda a bill of rights.
We have been attacked people, do you not understand this is a war for our very way of life.
People think crazy Muslims trying to kill us is a new thing, not true at all, they have been killing us for years. They want everyone in the world to be converted or dead, this is a war against Islam. They are at war with Christians and Jews, so we must be ever vigil. We will win, they will not prevail. They will not be able to take back there prize, Jerusalem, and they will not be able to crush the USA. If need be we will turn Iran into rubble and than Syria and throw a couple nukes on the midget of North Korea just for good measure. You terrorist are cowards and have no Honor!
