CIA Foiled al Qaeda Plot to Blow Up U.S. Bound Airliner

By NBC News and msnbc.com staff

The CIA foiled a plot by al-Qaida’s affiliate in Yemen to bomb a U.S.-bound airliner around the one-year anniversary of the killing of its former leader Osama bin Laden, senior U.S. officials told NBC News.

Officials said the plot involved a bomb with a design that upgraded the underwear bomb taken aboard a jetliner over Detroit on Christmas 2009. That explosive device failed to detonate.

The improved bomb had a more refined detonation mechanism, but was still intended to be hidden in a passenger’s underwear. Officials told NBC News the device was “totally non-metallic,” which would have made it more difficult to detect with traditional screening.

An official told NBC News no airlines were ever at risk. The plot was disrupted well before it threatened Americans or U.S. allies, the official added.

In the war on terror, success can sometimes bring retaliation.

Global terrorist Fahd al-Quso, who had links to the USS Cole bombing, was killed in Yemen Sunday, according to Yemeni officials and confirmed by al-Qaeda, reports USA Today.

A CIA drone strike killed the top al-Qaeda leader, on the FBI Most-Wanted list for the bombing of of the ship in 2000. The CIA mission was coordinated with the U.S. military and Yemeni government, who have been partners in battle against al-Qaeda in southern Yemen.

Reports indicate that a surprise attack by al-Qaeda militants against a Yemeni army base early Monday may have been retaliation for the death of al-Quso. The cycle of violence continues as the militants killed 20 soldiers, captured 25, and made off with weapons and hardware by land and sea, according to USA Today.

Al-Quso was released from a Yemeni prison in 2007, having served 5 years for his role in the USS Cole bombing in which 17 American sailors were killed and 39 injured. He was also implicated in the failed Underwear bomber attempt, in a 2009 Christmas flight over Detroit.
