White House: Explosives intended as US attack

White House Homeland Security Adviser John Brennan says the two explosive packages bound for the United States were intended to carry out an attack and could have done harm.

Brennan says the packages have been made inert and are no longer dangerous.

Brennan stopped short of linking the plot to al-Qaida's Yemen branch but said anyone who is associated with the group is a subject of concern.
