Interagency task force to address new terror threats

The FBI has created an interagency task force to coordinate intelligence and field operations in response to information that al Qaeda plans to attack the United States within a few months, Attorney General John Ashcroft said Wednesday.

He said intelligence does not indicate any specific time, place or location for an attack. “The Madrid railway bombings were perceived by Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda to have advanced their cause,” Ashcroft said during a press conference. “Al Qaeda may perceive that a large-scale attack in the United States this summer or fall would lead to similar consequences.” Full Story
