retired general: al qaeda ‘attack is coming’

from raw story: NBC News asked military analyst General Barry McCaffrey about recent statements by intelligence officials that another al Qaeda attack is on its way.

McCaffrey said the warnings should be considered credible, even if Osama bin Laden probably “has gone to ground.” He suggested at the same time that it would be a good idea to kill bin Laden using “remote controlled vehicles” and not attempt to capture him, adding, “Thank God for the CIA’s persistence.”

“In the short run, you know, we’re doing quite well,” McCaffrey concluded. “An awful lot of these al-Qaeda people are dead or behind bars. … You’ve got people like the New York Police Department and domestic law enforcement hyper-alert. … But the attack’s coming.”
