British security officials say intelligence experts are seriously concerned that al-Qaida will try to pull off a "spectacular" terrorist attack during the transition period from a Bush administration to an Obama administration.

In fact, British Home Office Security Minister Sir Alan West raised the specter of a “huge threat” and noted that “There is another great plot building up again and we are monitoring this," according to the London Times.

Bush administration officials also point out that terrorists have often struck during a time of official change:

  • The first World Trade Center attack came just weeks after President Bill Clinton's inauguration in 1993.

  • 9/11 occurred less than a year after President George W. Bush took office in 2001.

  • British officials thwarted nightclub and airport plots soon after Gordon Brown became prime minister in June 2007.

    Earlier this week, CIA Director Michael Hayden said that al-Qaida remains the single greatest threat to the United States.

    According to the Times, al-Qaida has been experimenting with biological weapons, such as anthrax.

    And Vice President-elect Joe Biden warned during the last month of the presidential election: "Watch, we’re going to have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle [of Obama].”
