Foil a terrorist plot???
As far as I know...back here in the western world...we only manage to get foreknowledge...we don't do foiling. It's not...in "our" best interest.
Those dumb Yemenians...foiling terrorist attacks...what will they think of next.
Ain't gonna be any terrorist looking to hit Johnny B. Hillbilly living on a mountainside by himself in rural Arkansas.

I have a confession to make. I'm a secret agent working at a secret facility owned by a secret agency within a secret government. But that's not important right now.
Ever since that traitor Snowden told you that we monitor communications, Al Qaeda, who pulled off the largest terrorist attack in this country's history but somehow lacked the common sense to anticipate we'd monitor a few emails and phone calls in response, has changed their methods of communication.
Good job. This is the consequence of you knowing how violated your rights are.
But never fear, children. I, too, foiled a massive Al Qaeda plot. It became massive very quickly because they quit using fast, advanced communication methods. That makes sense, just go with it. But I foiled this plot today. It was in Kuwait or whatever. Something like that. They were going to target some oil fields and junk which would have sent YOUR gas prices SOARING! Is THAT what you want?! Anyway, I foiled this plot thanks to our surveillance programs that Al Qaeda has been dodging. That, too, makes sense, so just go with it.
You're not allowed to know because I still have something you don't - my fourth amendment rights.
