Exclusive: FBI: Al Qaeda May Strike U.S. Shopping Malls in LA, Chicago

Exclusive: FBI: Al Qaeda May Strike U.S. Shopping Malls in LA, Chicago

The FBI is warning that al Qaeda may be preparing a series of holiday attacks on U.S. shopping malls in Los Angeles and Chicago, according to an intelligence bulletin distributed to law enforcement authorities across the country this morning. (Click here for full text.)

The alert said al Qaeda "hoped to disrupt the U.S. economy and has been planning the attack for the past two years."

Law enforcement officials tell ABCNews.com that the FBI received the information in late September and declassified it yesterday for wide distribution.

The alert, like similar FBI and Department of Homeland Security terror alerts issued over the past five years at holiday times, raised questions about the credibility of the information.

The bulletin acknowledges that U.S. intelligence officers are "uncertain" as to whether the information is real or "disinformation."

Law enforcement officials at three different agencies told ABCNews.com the FBI alert was based on a source who has proved reliable in the past.

The source reportedly had only "indirect access" to al Qaeda and word of the actual threat came to U.S. intelligence officers "through a lengthy chain" of contacts.

With the shopping season approaching, however, the FBI officials decided it was necessary to share the information.

For the past few years, jihadist chat rooms have regularly posted comments from anonymous individuals who have suggested or boasted about similar plans to attack such soft targets as shopping malls.

This report makes sense, what better time to attack than Xmas Shopping in a Mall, say the weekend after Thanksgiving and/or the 24th of Dec.

If those Mulsims are going to mess with my Christmas then maybe we will mess with their hadj or something. The way to do it is to turn Saudi Arabia into a no fly zone, just like what we did with Iraq

Yeah,but what's it doing under their land?

I paid $3.89 per gallon (Chevron Supreme) to fill up the tank of the 560SEC on the highway back from Los Angeles to Nor Cal last night. First time $60 didn't fill the tank.

We just kicked up to $3.29 for Premium today.

You guys are getting close to your May07 highs. AAA says your state HIGH was $3.49 on May 9, 2007.

Here is the Six year chart of prices. Thank goodness we have a President with experience in the oil industry so we don't have to worry about spikes or prices doubling or anything like that while he has the reins.
