Can you say "The Siege"? Bruce WIllis's part will likely NOT be played by Colin Powell.

TERROR THREATS HIT AMERICA - from the Drudge Report

Osama bin Laden may be planning a strike on Washington or New York, TIME magazine is reporting in fresh editions. Just as, U.S. embassies in four Persian Gulf countries were warning Sunday night of a "strong possibility" that terrorists might attempt an attack against one or more U.S. targets in the region in the coming weeks.

According to reports, the U.S. government has obtained information indicating "a strong possibility that terrorist elements are planning an attack against U.S. targets in the gulf, possibly in the next 30 days."

The U.S. issued the warning on Sunday to Americans in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates. The warning was "unusually precise," reports the NEW YORK TIMES on Monday. "And it was backed up by a show of particular concern." In Bahrain, headquarters of the U.S. Fifth Fleet, nearly 1,000 U.S. military personnel have been put under curfew and told not to gather in public places.

But the Laden scare also is being felt domestically, intelligence sources tell TIME they have evidence that bin Laden may be planning his boldest move yet--a strike on Washington or possibly New York City in an eye-for-an-eye retaliation. "We've hit his headquarters, now he hits ours," a State tells TIME.
