Two senior Pakistani intelligence sources have stated that at least 6 individuals in the US were contacted by Al Qaeda operative Muhammad Naeem Noor Khan, who had been taken recently into custody in Pakistan. US officials are not saying the specifics of the information that was given for fear in compromising ongoing investigations.

Sources: Al Qaeda may have made contact in U.S. recently
He noted, "When you connect all these streams of intelligence, it paints an alarming picture."

Without mentioning Khan by name, McClellan said the suspected al Qaeda operative "had computer files with very detailed and specific information about some of al Qaeda's intentions."

"This is an active al Qaeda operative who we know has ties to other al Qaeda operatives who are involved in plotting to carry out attacks against the American people," McClellan said.

It was Khan's arrest and documents in his possession that sparked this week's increased threat levels in Washington, New Jersey and New York, U.S. officials said.

Khan is suspected to have helped Osama Bin Laden communicate with other Al Qaeda operatives. His true identity cannot be confirmed yet since he has multiple aliases. According to the information made available from the interrogation of Khan, he has stated that "Al Qaeda uses Web sites and e-mail addresses in Turkey, Nigeria and tribal areas of Pakistan to pass messages among themselves." The messages are deleted once they are sent and read, and email addresses were used only two or three times, if any information was "sensitive" an address was used only once.

I saw this earlier on the news...I am assuming that they have told sleeper cells to take care of their business!
