    Ya... That doesn't sound fishy at all.... Threat crafting IMO.

    Wait... an Arab... probably a Muslim... helped foil an Al-Qaeda plot? I thought Muslims weren't doing enough against terrorism? Religion of peace and all that.

    The US is conducting an inquiry into the leak of information, which Defence Secretary Leon Panetta said could hamper intelligence gathering.
    "When these leaks take place, I can't tell you how much they damage our ability to be able to pursue our intelligence efforts," Mr Panetta told reporters at the Pentagon... "

    its a big problem because the only way we are going to beat these extremists is if more and more Muslims work with us. Problem now is why are you going to risk your neck if the media are going to tell the world where your from etc, just cant be happening

    Yeah, this "leak" was unforgiveable. Since the guy was supposed to be a suicide bomber, there certainly was no chance of him returning to the cell in Yemen and gathering more intelligence, but that's not the point. The CIA now has this guy and his family in a safe house, because his identity has been compromised.

    That is NOT okay.
