CONFLICTING NEWS REPORTS Which to believe?
1 Terror alert intel "3 or 4 years old" Much of the information that led authorities to raise the terror alert at several large financial institutions in the New York City and Washington areas was 3 or 4 years old, intelligence and law enforcement officials said...
2 Fresh details backed terror threats Some of the surveillance files that triggered the nation's latest terrorism alert were reviewed and updated by Al Qaeda just months ago and dovetail with other, fresh intelligence that indicates the terrorism network remains intent on launching a major U.S. attack

From today's Paul Krugman commentary on slanted news reporting, this line was written before the "old info" story came out— but it gives some insight:

Although there is now a long history of alerts with remarkably convenient political timing, and Tom Ridge politicized the announcement by using the occasion to praise "the president's leadership in the war against terror," this one may be based on real information.
