Proof gathered from Bin Laden’s Pakistan compound reveals that Al-Qaeda thought about carrying out a terrorist attack against US railway system, said US officials on Thursday, although there were no indications of concrete planning to launch a strike. A US official, who requested to stay anonymous due to the sensitivity of the information, described the plot as “aspirational”. The apparent plan was exposed amid the computers, documents, flash drives, DVDs, hard drives and other items recovered by US forces from Bin Laden’s hide-out.
