Vatican terror threat thwarted?
By Phil Lawler ( bio - articles - email ) | Dec 27, 2003
According to an AP story, Italy's Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has revealed that terrorists planned to crash a plane into the Vatican on Christmas Day.
The story seems a bit fuzzy; Italian officials say that Berlusconi's statement was not official (whatever that means). But it matches what we had heard eariler: that the Israeli Mossad had warned about a terrorist threat against a high-profile Christian target.
