According to information seized during the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan, Al-Qaeda considered attacking U.S. trains on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

NBC.com reports:

The information about a possible train plot is the first intelligence revealed from the trove of material found in the attack on bin Laden’s compound. Officials said they found what they call “aspirational” items — things al-Qaida operatives were interested in trying to make happen.

A government advisory obtained by NBC News and sent Tuesday to the rail industry said that as far back as February 2010, al-Qaida was contemplating “an operation against trains at an unspecified location in the United States on the 10th anniversary” of the 9/11 attacks.

U.S. officials report no recent intelligence indicating that such a plot is active.
