WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A man is being held in Beirut, Lebanon, in connection with a plot to blow up tunnels in New York, counterterrorism sources told CNN.

In its Friday editions, the New York Daily News first reported that the FBI had revealed a plot to bomb New York's Holland Tunnel and flood the financial district in lower Manhattan.

Sources told CNN that the Holland Tunnel -- the southernmost link between New Jersey and Manhattan -- was not mentioned specifically as a target.

"At this time, we have no indication of any imminent threat to the New York transportation system or anywhere else in the U.S.," FBI Special Agent Richard Kolko said Friday.

CNN security analyst Pat D'Amuro characterized the plot as "a real threat" that "was in the early stages."

Sounds good that this was stopped.

Now FOX is saying they were targeting the PATH (Port Authority Trans-Hudson) railway tunnels, not the Holland automobile tunnel.

The point of this "News Story" is to justify Internet logging by the government. Look at HOW they got them... The same thing happened with the Wire tapping.

Just forcing Americans to believe that MONITORING = SAFETY.

don't fall for it.
