Let's Keep This Simple

Terror Plot Failed

British authorities said Thursday they had thwarted a major terrorist plot to simultaneously blow up several aircraft heading to the U.S. using explosives smuggled in hand luggage, averting what police described as "mass murder on an unimaginable scale."

Twenty-one suspects are in custody, after a series of arrests overnight.

The U.S. issued its highest terrorism alert ever, red, for commercial flights from Britain to the United States and raised the threat level for all domestic and international flights. All other flights, including all domestic flights in the United States, were put under an orange alert, one step below the highest level.

The Department of Homeland Security is taking immediate steps to increase security measures in the aviation sector in coordination with heightened security precautions in the United Kingdom. Over the last few hours, British authorities have arrested a significant number of extremists engaged in a substantial plot to destroy multiple passenger aircraft flying from the United Kingdom to the United States.

Apparently with Hezbollah getting all the recent media coverage, Al Qaeda was feeling left out.

Does anyone still believe this isn't a GLOBAL WAR on terrorism?

Of course, it's a global war.

In one of his recent audiotapes, OBL again spouted that this is a global jihad. Is the West listening?

Somber note here....From what I've been able to glean from the news so far today, not all the conspirators were apprehended.

And what about those missing Egyptian students? At least one terrorism expert mentioned them this morning!

I was watching Fox News yesterday and they mentioned the missing Egyptian "students". Another Homeland Security screwup.

More like an immigration issue. They should NEVER have been here in the first place!

I'm with Brooke about this Muslim immigration nonsense. Can't the U.S. take a look at Europe and learn a lesson?
