I am sure there are Americans that are providing assistance to alQaeda in other countries, but this story smacks of disinformation. I can't put my finger on it but it just seems phony and contrived to promote more fear.

Two officials said that Mr. Vinas, who until recently lived in Patchogue, learned about the Long Island Rail Road as a regular rider and shared that information with Qaeda leaders in Pakistan,

What kind of info could a regular rider provide that wasn't available elsewhere/anywhere?
