New Terror Alert: Utilities at Risk

Operatives of al Qaeda looking to score another U.S. terror attack are looking at major utility facilities, according to a new report by the Department of Homeland Security. The intelligence states that “violent extremists have, in fact, obtained insider positions” at places such as chemical and oil refineries, and that “outsiders have attempted to solicit utility-sector employees.” Documents recovered from Osama bin Laden’s compound reportedly verify that the terror group was planning a 9/11 reprisal. Former Homeland Security chief of staff Chad Sweet tells ABC News that a utility attack is the “only way you can actually kill the large-scale number of Americans” that bin Laden was after.
