Documents taken from Osama bin Laden’s Pakistan compound indicate that the head of al-Qaida was plotting an attack to mark the 10th anniversary of 9/11. The records contained names of possible operatives, but little else that was useful, according to Siobhan Gorman of The Wall Street Journal. —ARK
Siobhan Gorman reports that information recovered from Osama bin Laden’s Abbottabad compound indicates that the slain terrorist leader was in the initial stages of planning an attack for the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks with his “operations chief” Attiyah Abd al-Rahman ... . Bin Laden and Rahman were discussing names of operatives to be involved, according to the seized documents; Gorman also notes that most analysts have finished their review of the documents, but have found little actionable intelligence.
