One plot was uncovered in September 2009 and targeted New York City’s subway system. That failed plot was directed by senior al-Qa‘ida leadership in Pakistan and was also directly related to a scheme by al-Qa‘ida plotters in Pakistan to use Western operatives to attack a target in the United States.
