6 Nexus Consulting Securing Your Future Throughout the World NCGA 2012 © “Al-Qaida eyed oil tankers as bombing targets” By EILEEN SULLIVAN, MATT APUZZO 5/20/11 “Washington, DC (AP) — Osama bin Laden's personal files revealed a brazen idea to hijack oil tankers and blow them up at sea last summer, creating explosions he hoped would rattle the world's economy and send oil prices skyrocketing, the U.S. said Friday. The newly disclosed plot showed that while bin Laden was always scheming for the next big strike that would kill thousands of Americans, he also believed a relatively simpler attack on the oil industry could create a worldwide panic that would hurt Westerners every time they gassed up their cars.”  Nexus Consulting  PO Box 6434 Arlington, VA    VA Security License  William S.
