WASHINGTON (AP) - Al-Qaida considered attacking U.S. trains on the upcoming anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, but counterterrorism officials say they believe the planning never got
beyond the initial phase.
The officials say they have no recent intelligence pointing to an active plot for such an attack.
Information on the train plot appears to be the first widely circulated intelligence pulled from the raid this week on bin Laden's secret compound in Pakistan. A U.S official says other intelligence information gathered at the compound represented a terrorist wish list, but has revealed no specific plan so far.
