A senior official with the Department of Homeland Security told ABC News that the document bears eerie resemblance to intelligence released in 2001 shortly before 9/11.

ABC reported Friday that US officials had received intelligence warning of an attack on Glasgow against "airport infrastructure and aircraft," which appears to have been right.
