Ray Kelly: NYC Still At Risk Of Al-Qaida’s Attack

New York City continues to be at the risk of a terrorist attack even after the killing of al-Qaida’s longtime chief Osama bin Laden, city police chief said on Sunday.

“The elimination of Osama bin Laden was an important milestone, but not a game-changer. We’re still very much at risk,” New York City Police Chief Ray Kelly told the ABC news in an interview.

“We’re concerned, as we get closer to the 9/11/11 memorial, because we know Osama bin Laden spoke about that date twice in the last two-year period,” he said.

He was apparently referring to the information obtained from the materials seized from the Abbottabad residence of bin Laden, in which the al-Qaida leader was reportedly planning to have a major terrorist attack on New York City on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

“In fact, just a few days before the Norway massacre, we had a teleconference with our century partners—this is 100 law enforcement agencies in the northeast quadrant of the country—and that was the specific subject. We talked about certain groups and individuals that we’re concerned about,” he said.
