Pakistani Taliban ‘Plotting’ Against U.S. Targets, Officials Say


Nothing like some upbeat news right before the onset of a sunny, almost-summer weekend! A U.S. official told CNN Thursday night that U.S. intelligence has “strong reason to believe” that the Pakistani Taliban is actively plotting to attack locations in the U.S.(the threat information did not specify particular cities, the official said), as well as American targets overseas. The warning is based on “multiple streams of information,” including intelligence gleaned from Faisal Shahzad, according to the official. [CNN]
