Description

The US administration admits that new warnings of attacks on American cities were based on information gathered by al-Qaeda up to four years ago. Security was tightened around US financial institutions earlier this week after raids in Pakistan recovered documents reportedly naming them. Homeland security adviser Frances Townsend said some of the information recovered was collected in 2000/2001. But she added: "It appears that some of it may have been updated as recently as January of this year."
