al-Qaida planned to attack U.S. embassy in Kenya: "Al-Qaida operatives planned to destroy the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi in June with a truck bomb and a hijacked plane loaded with explosives, a plot described in a Kenya police report seen by The Associated Press on Friday. The report, based on an interrogation of a terror suspect, could explain why the U.S. Embassy was closed June 20-24 and why Kenyan officials banned flights from June 20-July 8 to and from Somalia, a lawless neighbor and suspected haven for terrorists."  11:33:18 PM  permalink

Moreover, Iran has said nothing about how long it will suspend its uranium enrichment program or what might cause it to resume the process. The article quoted Israel's military intelligence chief ominously asserting that "if Iran completed its uranium enrichment program, it would be able to produce nuclear weapons without outside help within one year.""  9:31:49 PM  permalink
