CNN Reporting: Chicago Gay-Friendly Synagogue Target of Thwarted Terror Attack

By: David Shepherd [dshepherd@wtwo.com] – Saturday, October 30, 2010

CNN is reporting a small synagogue dedicated to serving lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people in Chicago was one of the two intended targets of Friday’s thwarted terror attacks against Chicago.

The report comes from the synagogue’s co-president.  He claims the Or Chadash was notified through a rabbi who claimed the word came from authorities.

No one in the Intellegence field or the government has confirmed these claims.  There has been no public release of the exact locations targeted.

CNN reports Chicago FBI spokesman Royden Rice would not confirm or deny that Or Chadash was a target.

“We notified both targets yesterday,” Rice told CNN Saturday. “We always notify potential victims of crime. If they wish to reveal who they are, it’s up to them.”
