Former CIA, Now NYPD, Says Al Qaeda Attack Due "Any Given Day"
"The NYPD's intelligence chief says Osama Bin Laden's henchmen have stepped up recruitment over the past six months - turning a desolate area of northern Pakistan into a training ground for a new generation of terrorists.
"They want to come here, and whatever their capabilities, they absolutely are focused on returning to New York City," NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence David Cohen told the Daily News.
Cohen said he was well aware of the threat before a new report prepared for the White House became public last week."
Cohen should know: He used to serve as the CIA's Directorate of Operations, from 1995 to 1997, and spent 35 years in the CIA. This description is from Democracy+Now:
In January 2002, David Cohen was appointed to be the NYPD’s first Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence. Cohen came to New York after a 35-year career with the CIA. From 1995 to 1997, Cohen served as the CIA's Directorate of Operations, where he oversaw the agency's worldwide operations, managed the CIA's global network of offices and personnel, and maintained agency relationships with foreign intelligence and security services.
At the time of his appointment Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said “David has a strong reputation for forging ties and working effectively with other government agencies, foreign governments, and the private sector, and his drawing upon those strengths and contacts will greatly benefit the City as he directs the Police Department's intelligence efforts."
And so the police state continues to become a reality...
