French may have tipped of terrorist

Washington Times:

"One or more terror suspects may have escaped due to a premature disclosure in France of the security concerns behind the cancellation of Christmas flights to Los Angeles, U.S. officials said yesterday.

"One official said 'a chorus of groans' from the Department of Homeland Security to the White House went out when the French made clear at the time the cancellations had been ordered for security reasons.

"Washington believed that the longer publicity could have been avoided, 'the greater the chance to catch anybody else who was suspected of being involved,' he said. 'The French announcement caught everyone off guard.'

"U.S. law enforcement and intelligence officials had hoped all the suspects could be detained as they showed up for the flights, said a senior U.S. official familiar with the situation who did not want to be identified."
