Chicago Area Synagogues Target for Terrorists

The news began this morning that possible bombs or bomb related equipment was on a UPS flight that took off from Yemen.

CNN was one of the first news organizations on the story.  By the end of the day, it was revealed that two bombs were part of a terror plot targeting Jewish Synagogues in the Chicago area.

According to an Associated Press story, preliminary tests indicated the packages found on two different airplanes contained the powerful industrial explosive PETN, the same chemical used in the Christmas attack, U.S. officials said.

CBS television posted the following three-minute video that shows U.S. President Barak Obama addressing the credible terror threat.  He confirmed that both packages were found in Dubai and the United Kingdom and originated in Yemen.
