U.S. intelligence officials have warned that al Qaeda may be planning an attack targeting either New York City or Washington around the time of 10th anniversary of 9/11.

According to a Joint Intelligence Bulletin put out by the FBI and Homeland Security Thursday, the terror network may have been planning attacks as of early September, with the intention of creating panic among the public and throwing first responders into disarray.

Such attacks — which could include a possible car bomb attack — may involve operatives carrying U.S. documentation, the bulletin warns.

Intelligence officials believe al Qaeda “likely maintained an interest since at least February 2010 in conducting large attacks in the Homeland timed to coincide with symbolic dates, to include the 10-year anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks,” the document says.
