No Evidence of U.S. Election Terror Plot -Report

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. intelligence and law enforcement officials say they have found no direct evidence of plans for an election-related terror attack after a five-week investigation, the Washington Post reported in its Saturday edition.

Citing unnamed officials in an article on the newspaper's Web site, the Post said a key CIA source who claimed knowledge of such plans has since been discredited, casting doubt on earlier pieces of evidence pointing to an attack.

That earlier information led the FBI and other agencies across the government to launch a well-publicized campaign aimed at foiling potential plots before the elections. That effort included hundreds of interviews in immigrant neighborhoods, the paper wrote.

Intelligence officials say they continue to receive reports suggesting al Qaeda and its allies would like to mount attacks in the U.S. close to the Nov. 2 elections. The paper said these reports have been streaming in since commuter trains in Madrid were blown up days before Spain's elections last March.

1. All al Qaeda has to do now is sit
back on their laurels. They never need bother with another attack on the US. The US government is taking care of the fear propaganda and scaring the population to death without any outside help.
