An update on the foiled plot from last summer. From the Washington Times, :
A foiled British terror plot to blow up 10 passenger aircraft with liquid bombs was meant to occur over U.S. cities, a senior FBI official says.
Mark Mershon, head of the FBI’s New York field office, made the observation at the Infosecurity 2006 conference in New York on Oct. 24. The conference was reported on this week by Government Security News.
“The plan was bring them down over U.S. cities, not over the ocean,” Mershon said, adding the plotters’ goal was to maximize damage and loss of life.
