Al Qaeda prepared another attack on NYC

Time Magazine is now reporting in an exclusive article, that Al Qaeda planned and prepared to launch a chemical weapons attack, which is a Weapon of Mass Destruction for those who don't know, on New York City subways.

Conventional wisdom has long held that the U.S. has no human intelligence assets inside al Qaeda. "That is not true," writes Suskind. Over the previous six months, U.S. agents had been receiving accurate tips from a man the writer identifies simply as "Ali," a management-level al-Qaeda operative who believed his leaders had erred in attacking the U.S. directly. "The group was now dispersed," writes Suskind. "A few of its leaders and many foot soldiers were captured or dead.

The CIA discovered the plans on a captured Al Qaeda terrorists laptop computer. The CIA then built the device according to the specifications and instructions included in the Laptop. The device worked.

For reasons known only to Al Qaeda the prepared attack did not take place, it was called off 45 days before the scheduled attack date. We can all debate and offer our own reasons, and as this is my blog, I will offer my own reason.

The reason that the attack did not take place is that Al Qaeda is already being hunted like rabid animals around the world, and the chemical attack would further enrage the United States. The Al Qaeda leaders assumed that America would cut and run, surrender, and hide after being hit, it was after all their experience in Somalia.

I said, our boys were shocked by the low morale of the American soldier and they realized that the American soldier was just a paper tiger. He was unable to endure the strikes that were dealt to his army, so he fled,

Osama had promised his troops we would cut and run, we haven't. Osama promised his troops we couldn't stomach a real fight, we are beating them, they know it.

The last enemy who attacked us in a sneak attack was cautious after the attack. In fact, Admiral Yamamoto is quoted as saying "After an attack on the United States, I can run wild for six months. After that, I have no expectation for success". Admiral Yamamoto is popularly thought to have also said "I fear that all I have done is waken a sleeping Giant, and filled him with a terrible resolve." It is unknown if he actually said that, however, it does in concise manner, reflect many misgivings that Admiral Yamamoto had concerning the wisdom of attacking the United States. Admiral Yamamoto understood his enemy, and that is always a good thing in a military leader. Osama bin Laden obviously misjudged American Rage at the attacks of 9-11, he assumed we were all Senator Kerry, or Senator Kennedy. He assumed the majority of us were Liberal Democrats, now he knows we are Conservatives, and we are in the fight and aren't running like he expected.

Perhaps he felt that nothing was to be gained in further enraging the United States, perhaps someone had found a History Book, and mentioned to Osama that the term Pearl Harbor refers to a sneak attack, and the result of that attack was Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Perhaps Osama has learned that the paper tiger has claws after all.

Allahpundit has a post on Hot Air on this one.
