Clinton: ‘Terrorists Keep Trying’

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Monday that the recent foiled bomb plot by suspected extremists in Yemen is proof that “terrorists keep trying” to kill Americans and all the more reason the U.S. has to “remain vigilant.” U.S. counterterrorism officials said on Monday that the FBI is analyzing the explosive device, which is similar to the so-called underwear bomb that a man attempted to use to blow up a Detroit airliner. U.S. officials said the plot was busted by an “insider” who managed to “infiltrate” al Qaeda. U.S. Rep. Peter King alleged the suspected plot is linked to an al Qaeda leader killed in Yemen on Saturday, but Yemeni leaders said they have no information on this particular plot.
