Ackerman (D-N.Y.) said FBI officials also told him it could mean he was a possible target of terrorists. The existence of the list of five New York leaders was reported in New York Newsday. The list also included two federal judges, a former assistant U.S. attorney and a columnist for the weekly Jewish Press. FBI officials declined to comment about the report.
