WOODBURY - ? Officials say a CIA double agent foiled the most recent sophisticated al-Qaida bomb plot.
Terrorists were planning to use a bomb made without metal, thinking they could get it through some airport security systems. Officials say the man al-Qaida thought was its suicide bomber was actually a double agent. The CIA informant was also working for Saudi Arabian intelligences when he turned the plans over to the United States intelligence.
Today, Rep. Peter King is upset that sensitive information about the double agent has been released. The FBI is analyzing the device and says it was similar to the explosive used in the 2009 failed underwear-bombing.
