Breaking News- Terror Plot Foiled In UK, Affects US Travel

Police in England foiled a terrorist plot to blow up as many as 20 aircraft heading for the United States:

British authorities said Thursday they had thwarted a terrorist plot to simultaneously blow up several aircraft heading to the U.S. using explosives smuggled in carry-on luggage, averting what police described as “mass murder on an unimaginable scale.” Home Secretary John Reid said British police and government were confident the main suspects had been arrested.

Huge crowds formed at security barriers at London’s Heathrow airport as officials searching for explosives barred nearly every form of liquid outside of baby formula.

Officials raised security to its highest level in Britain _ suggesting a terrorist attack might be imminent _ and banned hand-carried luggage on all trans-Atlantic flights.

The would be murderers were taken into custody by Heathrow Airport is in virtual lock down with most, if not all, flights, cancelled. In the United States the terrorist alert level for travel has been elevated and airports are already reporting long lines and flight delays. Officials close to the case indicated that the plot has “al-Qaida footprints” all over it.

Once again we have a terror plot foiled. I hope that this cooperative effort between the UK and the US wakes people in this country up and they become enlightened. Terrorists do not care who they kill or how they do it. If they turn out to be Islamic, it will once again be an act of aggression by the religion of peace.

    We better fasten our seat belts. Unfortunately the political pundits are going to keep playing their games and the left is going to keep up with live the poor downtrodden a chance.

    Big Dog, this end run on the new Caliphate is much worse because of the availability of weapons and methods to strike terror into the heart of Kafirs.
