    The chief standing al Qaeda planner, who really has been potent, got intercepted, it turns out. This according to the BBC. (The guy who came up with a way of getting an explosive into his cousin's body to blow up a head of state. The explosive worked, but the cousin didn't get to get to the head of state. Same guy who came up with the crotch fire method. These are methods that have been quite scary to the airport folk.)

    I.e. it seems to be concrete, but not specific.

    Like I said, I couldn't see a connection to NSA, and I think Democratic Presidents tend to take the military more seriously than their Republican counterparts, so they're more likely to not play games with Defcon 2 and such.

    Everyone's innocent of some crime.
