'White House list of disrupted terror plots questioned
By John Diamond and Toni Locy, USA TODAY

WASHINGTON — President Bush's claim on Oct. 6 that U.S. and allied intelligence operatives had foiled 10 al-Qaeda terrorist plots included plans on the group's wish list rather than fully formed attack plots, according to U.S. intelligence and counterterrorism officials.In at least six of the cases, U.S. or allied forces arrested alleged conspirators who divulged details of operations they had been planning. Those plots involved preliminary ideas about potential attacks, not terrorist operations that were about to be carried out, said a U.S. counterterrorism official and an official familiar with the counterterrorism efforts. They spoke on condition of anonymity because information about the list issued by the White House is classified.

During his speech, Bush provided no details about the disrupted plans. Later that day, the White House released the list of 10 plots and five "casings and infiltrations" by terrorist organizations that were stopped, but it provided no detailed supporting material."
