Senior al Qaeda leaders are increasing preparations for an attack on the United States, keeping true to Osama bin Laden's request in 2005 to initiate an attack on the White House or other large-scale public venues, senior intelligence officials told the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence today.
"Al Qaeda is improving the last key aspect of its ability to attack the U.S. — the identification, training, and positioning of operatives for an attack in the homeland," said Michael McConnell, director of National Intelligence, which oversees all 16 U.S. intelligence agencies. "While increased security measures at home and abroad have caused al Qaeda to view the West, especially the U.S., as a harder target, we have seen an influx of new Western recruits into the tribal areas since mid-2006."
