, as FBI Cites Possible Terror Attack on NYC Subway System.

Amidst reports of possible terrorist attacks in the U.S., Lyndon LaRouche today stressed again that his primary concern is the threat to the life of President-elect Barack Obama. Noting that the urgent question right now is the defense of the President-elect's life, LaRouche emphasized that this is "the big target" at this moment. "The other ones can create a mess; but that one blows the system," LaRouche warned. "So that is what we have to watch."

LaRouche's warning came upon his being told of an Associated Press report that the FBI has informed law-enforcement agencies that it has received a "plausible but unsubstantiated" report that al-Qaeda terrorists have discussed attacking the New York City subway system during the holiday season. The FBI stated, according to AP: "We have no specific details to confirm that this plot has developed beyond aspirational planning, but we are issuing this warning out of concern that such an attack could possibly be conducted during the forthcoming holiday season."

Lyndon LaRouche noted that this is possibly true, comparing the situation to that in late summer of 2001. "Remember, you had the stuff in Italy, then you had the threat in the Washington, D.C. area, which we were sitting on top of," LaRouche recalled. "And then suddenly: boom, boom, we got this thing with 9/11, and other things that went with that."

What we're getting in this kind of situation, LaRouche continued, is "a lot of static in a period of crisis, which is exactly the time that calls for this kind of play." Pointing to the immediate threat to Obama, LaRouche went on to caution that all kinds of things are possible. "And the other things will be thrown in to distract attention," LaRouche concluded, "including all these other things, which are horrifying enough in themselves, to distract attention from the immediacy of the other problem."
