Something Old, Something New

So the headlines are a-flurry this morning that "the intelligence" that prompted the latest terror warnings is very old, from like, 2000 or 2001.

What it sounds like is that with the recent capture of Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani in Pakistan, they found lots of surveillance information that Al Qaeda had gathered on the New York Stock Exchange and other targets. It sounds like the information they'd gathered dates back several years, and there's mention of e-mails that refer to attacking these targets.

So I ask you, if an Al Qaeda operative had been captured in the months before 9/11 with detailed information, much of it publicly available, about the WTC and the Pentagon, with e-mails talking about attacking them...would it be a bad idea to notify the public, those institutions, and beef up security there?

Or would it be best to laugh it off as political maneuvering?
