Washington, Feb 4 : Intelligence chiefs have warned that al Qaeda is likely to attack the US within six months.
Intelligence chiefs said Nigerian terror suspect Abdulmutallab has identified his handlers in Yemen, including the man who designed his underwear bomb, and given extensive details about his training.
According to sources, Abdulmutallab also said that there are other recruits just like him and emphasized that more attacks against the United States are in the works.
Attorney General Eric Holder, in a letter to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, said Abdulmutallab "has provided additional intelligence to the FBI that we are actively using to help protect our country."
National Intelligence Director Dennis Blair reaffirmed what officials have learned from Abdulmutallab and warned that al Qaeda's pool of suicide bombers may include US citizens and that the terror group may be targeting US nationals overseas for attack.
