WASHINGTON -- FBI investigators have made new arrests and developed leads that reinforce concerns that terrorists plan to strike around the presidential election, officials said Saturday, even though the CIA has discredited a person who told its agents of such a plot involving al-Qaida.
A senior FBI official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said some of the leads were culled from interviews with thousands of individuals that agents have conducted in the Muslim community.


The official would not be more specific, but said the FBI continues to have misgivings about possible al-Qaida intentions to launch an attack with the goal of affecting the elections.

Well isn't it the job of the CIA for international affairs in Iraq to find those out? I thought the FBI was based in America, and the CIA was for external affairs.

That aside, I think there are "terrorist plots" everyday to kill something. But then again, it could be 80 year old men sitting around saying they wanna kill somethin'. Scary "plots!" ahh!
