Thwarted Saudi Plot Another 9-11?

Interesting article but I've got to put it on major honking huge flashing yellow light alert as well.

Al Qaeda-linked plotters hoped to reproduce the Sept 11, 2001 attacks by planning to dispatch suicide pilots to military bases and launching attacks on the oil refineries that drive the economy of Osama bin Laden's homeland, Saudi Arabian officials said Saturday.

Revealing new details of the purported plot, a government spokesman said some of the 172 attackers trained as pilots in an unidentified 'troubled country' nearby, hoping to use the planes to carry out suicide attacks.

If true this is huge news, but I am absolutely not ready to buy it based on one potentially biased source. Yellow light but definitely read!
