Terror Plans Uncovered in Detroit

By  | 

Surveillance tape seized in a raid on a Detroit terrorist cell a year after 9-11 shows terrorists cased Las Vegas casinos.

Documents obtained by The Associated Press show local and federal officials weighed the impact an alert would have on the public and local tourism.

Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman says the government never told him there were credible threats against his city.

One memo states the casinos didn't want to see the footage for fear it would make them more likely to be held liable in civil court if an attack occurred.
