Terrorist plotAs the whole world is probably aware by now, British authorities unfoiled a terrorist plot in which terrorists had blan to blow up aircraft that were headed from Britain to America. Scotland Yard arrested some 21 people, and they are confident, they say, that they managed to get all of those who were plotting the attacks.
I first heard of this at about two o'clock this morning, which is apparently when word first broke.
At first, the Bush Administration was not saying who was behind the attempted attacks, but now there is word that this attempt was "suggestive" of an Al-Qaeda plot. I do think that folks are getting much better at spotting these terrorist plots, and that is going to make it much more difficult for the enemy to engage in their kind of warfare. At the same time, I think this attempt makes us all aware that terrorists have not given up.
