Former CIA, Now NYPD, Says Al Qaeda Attack Due "Any Given Day"

According to the NY Daily News,

"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:
