**UPDATE**: Threat to NYC Subway

It turns out that the NYC Subway threat was a result of information gathered from recent arrests - in Iraq.

U.S. intelligence officials said U.S. forces earlier in the week had raided a base belonging to Ansar al Islam, a small group linked to al-Qaida comprised of Islamic extremists from Iraq's Kurdish minority, in the city of Musayaf, south of Baghdad.

The raid recovered information that 19 suicide bombers using suitcases and baby carriages planned to hit the New York subway system, they said. The information was passed to the FBI, which turned it over to New York officials. (Mercury News)

**UPDATE** Muchos gracias to Mack Tapscott for the generous plug on his Blog. Definently check his blog out for excellent updates and analysis of the Oklahoma suicide bombing, and more.
