Reports: Islamic State Planning Attacks on New York and Paris Subway Systems

Well, we wouldn't want to jump to any conclusions about Islamic State's intentions to destroy the U.S. homeland and maim and murder Americans. Nope, that'd be racist.

Here's Time, in any case, "ISIS Plotting Subway Attacks in New York City and Paris, Iraqi PM Says":
Militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) plan to attack the subway systems in New York and Paris, Iraq’s prime minister said Thursday, but U.S. security officials said they had no evidence to back up the claim.

Haider al-Abadi told reporters at the United Nations General Assembly that information obtained from militants captured in Iraq yielded “credible” intelligence that the Islamist group is plotting attacks in New York and Paris, Reuters reports. “They plan to have attacks in the metros of Paris and the U.S.,” Abadi said. “I asked for more credible information. I asked for names. I asked for details, for cities, you know, dates. And from the details I have received, yes, it looks credible.”
