FBI Warns of Possible Terror Plot Against New York City Subway During Holidays

According to news reports, federal authorities are warning of a possible Al Qaeda-orchestrated terror plot against New York City subway and other transit systems during the holidays.

The potential threat — described in an internal FBI memo as “plausible but unsubstantiated” — does not extend beyond the New York City area. Commuters could see security tighten across the country.

The Washington Post is reporting that federal and state authorities are working “to follow every possible
thread,” and a federal law enforcement official said no arrests have
been made.

Time of Darkness
Annette Marie Hyder

When the world
closes its eyes
plunging itself into a time of darkness
for the last time

turns on side
and curls in on itself
before dying for real in its own bad dream
when everything ceases and desists
for all and every and ever

I want to touch you on your shoulder
lead you away
to other dreams that are just as true
if only some believe
even just we two.
