Iraq PM Reveals Plot To Attack New York Subways
[su_right_ad]Iraq Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi says he was told of a plot by the Islamic State to attack New York subways.
Asked if the attack had been thwarted, he said, “No.” Al-Abadi said the United States had been alerted .
He made the remarks at a meeting with journalists on the sidelines of a gathering of world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly.
Congressman Peter King, member of the Homeland Security Commission, told CBS 2 that he has not seen evidence of an imminent threat against the United States.
“I have been aware that there are plots that ISIS is planning overseas against other countries, quite honestly, I have not been advised of this — and I have been checking this out — I don’t believe that the U.S. government has been advised of an imminent plot,” King said.
“It could be speculation in Iraq, it could be conversations where they were talking about it as aspirational, but as far as it being in motion I don’t believe it is,” King added.[su_csky_ad]
