US Hints Shin Bet Misled Government Over 'Al Qaeda Plot'


Israeli security forces announced Wednesday that they had foiled a global jihad plot to blow up the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem's Convention Center.

But U.S. officials told NBC News they couldn't confirm the threat, and hinted that the Shin Bet may even be misleading the Israeli government regarding the link between the cell and Al Qaeda.
