Obama's White House quickly released an informal statement stating, "We had no specific, credible information about active terrorist plots timed to coincide with the anniversary [of the terrorist's death] and reiterate that this device never represented a threat to the public."
According to Associated Press reports, the CIA seized the explosive, a version of the device used in the failed Christmas 2009 plan to bring down a commercial plane over Detroit. The new device, however, had certain improvements--
The bomb was seized by the CIA before the bomber had even chosen a target or acquired a plane ticket. No specific details on how or where the seizure occurred was available at press time.
