    Intel community worried Obama administration disclosed too much about latest al Qaeda threat
    Fear that sources and methods may have been compromised


    By Lisa Ruth - The Washington Times Communities
    In warning about possible al Qaeda attacks against Americans overseas, U.S. officials may have provided too much detail about intercepted chatter and the source of the information, and that may make it more difficult to get such tips next time, former and current intelligence officials say.

    Terrorist groups of all persuasions are active and adaptive opponents. I have to wonder if, even now, many of them are not looking at the closure of 22 stations as an effect they have achieved without any concrete action, and considering how they can replicate it.
