US warned of attack at Glasgow 2 weeks ago
U.S. law enforcement officials received intelligence reports two weeks ago warning of a possible terror attack in Glasgow against "airport infrastructure or aircraft," a senior US law enforcement officials tells the Blotter on ABCNews.com.The US assigned air marshals to flights to and from those destinations. It is not clear how the US got the intelligence, but my speculation is that we probably intercepted enemy communications. If so it would demonstrate the value of the terrorist surveillance intercepts and the poor judgment of Democrats who want to hamstrung it with hoops that must be jumped through before we can listen to what the enemy is saying.
The intelligence reports also warned that airports and aircraft in the Czech Republic could be the targets of al Qaeda-connected terrorists.
