In April, just prior to the anniversary of the death of Osama bin Laden, the ABC News Brian Ross investigative team learned of a fast developing terror threat in a new plot by the notorious Yemeni master bomb maker al-Asiri. Balancing the journalistic requirements of reporting the news against advisories by the White House that agents were at risk, ABC News led the way on the air in tracking and revealing the developments. The ABC's team reporting ultimately revealed exclusive details of how the CIA and British intelligence worked together in a daring operation involving a double agent who infiltrated al-Asiri's network and carried the bomb safely out of Yemen into the hands of western intelligence.
