Alleged Mata Hari of Al Qaeda Could Provide 'Treasure Trove' of Intelligence Aafia Siddique Had a List of Targets in New York City & Chem-Bio Weapons Information in her Possession ABC NEWS By RICHARD ESPOSITO and BRIAN ROSS.

When she was arrested in Afghanistan last month, Aafia Siddique allegedly had in her possession maps of New York, a list of potential targets that included the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, the subway system and the animal disease center on Plum Island, detailed chemical, biological and radiological weapon information that has been seen only in a handful of terrorist cases, as well as a thumb drive packed with emails, ABC News has learned.
Before she turned her attention to blowing up New York landmarks, the alleged al Qaeda "Mata Hari" had wild dreams of murdering former Presidents Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush, federal law-enforcement sources said yesterday.
MIT-educated neuroscientist Aafia Siddiqui's outlandish terror schemes included plans to get Carter by poisoning the 39th president's water supply, the sources told ABC News. It wasn't clear how she supposedly schemed to kill Bush.
Authorities had been chasing her through information gleaned from interviews with admitted 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed. She was once married to the convicted terrorist's nephew.

Officials believe arrested neuroscientist Aafia Siddiqui is a danger to the U.S.
That haul of information has led multiple government sources to describe Siddique, a 36 year-old MIT graduate, as a potential "treasure trove" of information on terrorist supporters, sympathizers or 'sleepers' in the United States and overseas.
"She is the most significant capture in five years," said former CIA officer John Kiriakou, who said she lives up to her reputation as an alleged terrorist 'Mata Hari.' And there is an eagerness to see what, if anything, she can add to the thin trickle of fresh information on the activities of terrorists and terrorist supporters in Afghanistan and Pakistan, as well as what if any risk she might pose to national security.
