Its 10:00 Do You Know Where Your Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Restricted Domestic Terrorists Are?
A terror suspect who has gone missing after changing into a burka at a mosque is being hunted by police.
Mohammed Ahmed Mohamed, 27, who was subject to an order restricting his movements, was last seen on Friday leaving the site in Acton, west London.
CCTV images showed him leaving with his face totally covered.
Police say Mr Mohamed, who has been linked to the Somali militant group al-Shabab, should not be approached but do not believe he poses a direct threat.

UK Police Thwart Copy Cat Mall Attack
Disgruntled Jehovah's Witnesses, I'm sure:
British law enforcement agencies say they have averted a plot to orchestrate a large-scale terror attack similar to the assault on Kenya's Westgate mall.h/t: TROP
Police are questioning four men in their 20s on suspicion of terrorism after they were detained on Sunday in pre-planned, intelligence-led raids.
A British security official says the men were planning a shooting spree akin to the Westgate attack in Nairobi, in which at least 67 people died....
Metropolitan Police did not identify the suspects or say what, if any, charges, they may face. But in a series of statements, the force said the men were all British nationals between the ages of 25 and 29, with roots in Turkey, Pakistan, Algeria and Azerbaijan.

British Court Clears Way to Seize Home Used in Terror Financing
Fund the Taliban, lose your home:
Three judges said the trial of Munir Farooqi, from Longsight, Manchester, and two other men had been fair.Too bad Rachel Corrie won't be there to lay in front of the wrecking ball.
The Court of Appeal decision paves the way for the first ever seizure of a family home as a terrorist asset....
His trial heard that he had used the family's large Victorian home to hold meetings to radicalise recruits. One of Farooqi's sons was acquitted at trial of charges relating to his father's actions.
Following his conviction, Greater Manchester Police and the Crown Prosecution Service said they would seek to take the property because it had been used for a terrorist purpose and had been "in the possession or control" of Farooqi at the time he committed the offences.
What, too soon?

"Innocent" Gitmo Prisoner Calls on Taliban to Storm Gitmo
Moazzam Begg is held up by both the Left and Islamists as evidence that most Gitmo prisoners were just innocent guys wandering around Afghanistan herding goats when the meany-Americans profiled them and just started putting every Mo, Azziz, and Machmood in prison.
If this guy wasn't al Qaeda, how come he's so keen on al Qaeda breaking prisoners out of Iraqi jails? And why does he want the Taliban to do the same in Gitmo?
Begg is one of the jihad supporting assmaggots behind the group masquerading as a "human rights" organization called Cage Prisoners. This is a group that had Anwar al-Awlaki as their keynote speaker at a "human rights fundraiser". You know, the former external operations chief for al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.

Another of Anjem Choudary's Followers Sentenced For Support of al-Qaeda
A man with links to radical Muslim preacher Anjem Choudary has been jailed for two years for terrorism offences.The Daily Mail states in the bullet points state he had over 50 copies of "AQAP's Inspire". There are only eleven issues of Inspire though. So he must have had copies of various other al-Qaeda publications such as Vanguards of Khorasan, Shahamat or Al-Samoud.
Royal Mail worker Mohammed Benares, 45, had terror guides showing how to make a bomb and detonator and how to handle an AK47 assault rifle.
Benares, of Saltley, Birmingham, downloaded the terror material from the internet and stored it on three external hard drives. He also had links with another radical preacher, Abu Izzadeen.
The documents included online al Qaida magazine Inspire and step-by-step instructions on how to make a bomb ‘In the kitchen of your mom’ using readily-available ingredients.
The court heard that Benares had attended a demonstration organised by the Muslims Against Crusades group( Benares at 0:17) in central London on September 11, 2011 to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.
Abu Izzadeen a revert formerly known as Trevor Brooks was recently released after serving time for terrorist fund-raising and inciting terrorism.

Abu Qatada FINALLY Deported from UK
It's a small victory, but we takes what we can gets:
Radical cleric Abu Qatada is being held in a high security jail near the Jordanian capital Amman, after being deported from the UK....It took 8 years for Osama bin Laden's go-to man in the UK to finally be deported.
Abu Qatada was first arrested in the UK over alleged terror connections in 2001 and has fought deportation since 2005....
Military prosecutors charged him with conspiracy to carry out terrorist acts - relating to a plot to bomb American and Israeli tourists during Jordan's millennium celebrations.
Eight. Freaking. Years.
Let's hope Jordanian prisons are as bad as my imagination envisions them.

Cornhole Watch: Six Man Circle Jerk Edition
Six Islamist extremists have been jailed for a total of more than 100 years for plotting a gun and bomb attack on an English Defence League rally that could have sparked spiralling communal violence in Britain.Now is the time at Jawa Report when we dance.
The six travelled to Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, for the rally attended by several hundred people with a car full of weaponry including a pipe bomb, two shotguns and knives but turned up too late to carry out the attack.
As they drove home to Birmingham, one of their cars was pulled over by police because a plotter failed to fill out an online application form properly and the car showed up as *having no insurance.
*Grandpa always said that insurance was a Zionist plot.

Woolwich Butcherer Michael Adebolajo Asked To Be Known As Mujahid Abu Hamza In Bizarre Cornhole Watch Appearance
A man accused of murdering soldier Lee Rigby made a bizarre appearance in court today and demanded to be known as Mujahid Abu Hamza.
Michael Adebolajo, 28, constantly interrupted proceedings during the ten minute hearing at London’s Westminster magistrates’ court.
Dressed in white T-shirt and trousers, he held a copy of the Koran and had his left arm cased in plaster.
He smiled and blew kisses to a lone supporter in the public gallery and both men then pointed at the ceiling of the court in a gesture similar to the victory sign given by Olympic sprinter Usain Bolt.

U.K. Police Arrest 3 More Men In Connection With Savage Murder Of Drummer Rigby
Most likely more of al-Qaeda loving Anjem Choudary and Omar (the goat humping) Bakri Mohammed followers like the above
LONDON (AP) — British police on Saturday arrested three more suspects in connection with the savage killing of an off-duty soldier that has raised fresh concerns about terrorism.
Scotland Yard said counterterrorism officers arrested two men, ages 24 and 28, at a residential address in southeast London. A third man, 21, was arrested separately on a London street at the same time.
Police said they used a stun gun on two of the suspects. All three were detained on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder.

Abu Nusaybah, Friend Of Woolwich Butcher Mujahid Adebolajo, Arrested After Appearing On BBCUpdated: Abu Nusaybah Also Mentored By Jihad Preacher Anjem Choudary
Apparently, in the interview, Abu Nusaybah told BBC Mujahid was approached by M15 and they asked if he wanted to work for them. I guess Mujahid preferred his current occupation as Islamic butcher of kaffirs.
MI5 asked Woolwich murder suspect Michael Adebolajo if he wanted to work for them about six months before the killing, a childhood friend has said.Nusaybah said Mujahid Adebolajo was cornholed in Kenya.[See my update below the fold].
Abu Nusaybah told BBC Newsnight his friend - one of two men arrested after Drummer Lee Rigby's murder in south-east London on Wednesday - had rejected the approach from the security service.
The BBC could not obtain any confirmation from Whitehall sources.
Abu Nusaybah was arrested at the BBC after giving the interview.
The Met Police said a 31-year-old man had been arrested at 21:30 BST on Friday in relation to suspected terrorism offences and search warrants were being executed at two homes in east London.
The arrest was not directly related to the murder of Drummer Rigby, it said.
In his Newsnight interview, Abu Nusaybah said he thought "a change" had taken place in his friend after his detention by security forces on a trip to Kenya last year.I had posted earlier one of the two terrorists wanted to join al-Shabaab but I didn't know which one. Most likely it was him considering his 'trip to Kenya'.
Abu Nusaybah said Mr Adebolajo suggested he had been physically and sexually abused during an interrogation in a prison cell in the African country.
After this, he became withdrawn "and less talkative - he wasn't his bubbly self", Abu Nusaybah added.
He said Mr Adebolajo also told him that, upon his return, he was "followed up by MI5" who were "knocking on his door".
Brother Abu Nusaybah MashAllah has a Big family, so plz make dua for his wives and kids, hes house is still being searched. #FreeAbuNusaybah— Mujib Rahman (@MujibRahman93) May 24, 2013
I bet he is raking in the big welfare bucks[Jihad seekers allowance]. Many wives and kids, good Lord.
Update: I checked man of many wives twitter account for the cornhole comment:
He's full of shit. Yes, Kenya jails are bad but stating UK knew?
Update II: He was/is mentored by radical preacher Anjem Choudary. I thought his face looked familiar:
Nusaybah is connected to extremists formerly in the banned group al-Muhajiroun. Counter-terrorism officers turned up at reception at the BBC's central London headquarters as his interview was being recorded an hour before it was broadcast. The officers waited, then arrested Nusaybah as he left the BBC's headquarters.He is trying to incite his akhis and make excuses for that beheading bastard of a friend of his.
Epicenter Of Evil: Anjem Choudary's Web Of HateOmar Bakri Mohammed, London Beheader's Imam
Click to enlarge
I added the last name of the second Woolwich butcher to the above image. His full name is Michael Oluwatobi Adebowale
Via The Sun: Epicentre of evil- Killer is my pupil, says Choudary
HATE cleric Anjem Choudary yesterday admitted the Woolwich butcher was one of his disciples — and praised his “impeccable character”.Until the PC shite stops we will continue to see these Islamic bast*rds continue their jihad on infidels.
Bile-spewing Choudary acknowledged he helped turn Michael Adebolajo to extremism and that the machete monster was only “making his voice heard in blood”.
The preacher — still free as a bird despite brazenly inspiring terrorists for a DECADE — claimed he did not “condone” the attack that left soldier Lee Rigby dead.
Choudary said of Wednesday’s atrocity by Adebolajo and fellow fanatic Michael Oluwatobi Adebowale: “What he did was unusual and it’s not the view I propagate but those views are out there.
“Some members of the Muslim community struggle to express themselves and he is making his voice heard in blood.”
His comments come three months after The Sun secretly filmed Choudary, who is a British citizen, teaching extremists to “rise up” against non-believers.
We caught the father of four, who The Sun revealed has claimed £25,000 a year in welfare, urging fanatics not to ignore “jihad and fighting”, and labelling David Cameron the devil.
It was just the latest example of Choudary being at the centre of terror plots — leading experts to demand why police are guilty of “a gross derogation of duty” by turning a blind eye towards him.
The Sun handed cops a detailed dossier of Choudary’s terrorist training methods after publication of our expose on February 17. We met detectives at their request on March 6 and handed over reams of paperwork and DVDs of secret recordings of the preacher’s rants.
On March 26 Thames Valley Police-based officers announced they would mount no case — saying the material we provided “fell below an evidential threshold”.
Terrorists are not born, they are made....
2nd Woolwich Terrorist Is ID'd As Michael Oluwatobi AdebowaleConvert To Islam, Probation Officer's Son
The second Muslim convert who allegedly executed Lee Rigby in Woolwich has been identified as Michael Adebowale, a probation officer’s son radicalised as a teenager, it emerged today.His "friend" speaks out
The 22-year-old British citizen of Nigerian descent and Michael Adebolajo, 28, ran the soldier down with their car before ‘hacking, chopping and cutting’ at his body like ‘crazed animals’ screaming ‘Allah Akbar!’ – an Islamic phrase meaning ‘God is great’, witnesses said.
With Rigby’s body left in the street Adebolajo ranted on film: ‘You people will never be safe’ before the pair waited 14 minutes for armed police to arrive and were gunned down waving firearms, knives and a machete.
Both have been been arrested on suspicion of murder and remain in hospital in a stable condition with Scotland Yard waiting to interview them[...]
Details about the 22-year-old are still emerging, but it is understood he and his girlfriend, a fellow convert, were well known in south-east London for handing out extremist leaflets[...]
They had been considered “lone wolves”. But MI5 and Scotland Yard’s counter-terrorism officers are trying to find out if they are part of a terror cell that could carry out further atrocities.
One of the killers was picked up by police last year as he tried to leave the country, apparently on his way to join al-Qaeda-linked Al-Shabaab fighters in Somalia[...]
Somalian terrorists Al-Shabaab last night tweeted messages of sympathy for the Woolwich butchers.
Big "shock" my arse.

Michael Mujahid Adebolajo: Behead Those That Insult Islam

Michael Mujahid Adebolajo: Behead Those That Insult IslamSuch A Quiet & Shy Lad Eh Anjem Choudary & Omar Bakri Mohammed?
Well, he said he would behead and that's what he tried to do to Drummer Lee Rigby.
The setting was the Old Bailey in 2006, where four men were arrested for fighting with police and photographers as they turned out in support of a fanatic on trial for calling for British soldiers to be killed.Again, Anjem Choudary and Omar (the goat humping) Bakri Mohammed have mentored another Islamic terrorist.
Among those led away in handcuffs that day, still arguing that he was within his rights to urge people to “behead those who insult Islam”, was Michael “Mujahid” Adebolajo. Seven years on, Adebolajo, a British-born Muslim convert, is suspected of having answered the call to arms as one of two men who butchered Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich.
The attack on the soldier, following which Adebolajo talked of an “eye for an eye” [he was citing the Quran MFM talked over it..ed]as his hands dripped with blood, came seemingly from nowhere, but The Telegraph has established that the killer had in fact been well known to the police and MI5 for years. Far from being a so-called “cleanskin”, Adebolajo was a known extremist with an open MI5 file who was in plain sight all along

Police say Ibrahim Magag, 28, who is of Somali origin, is not considered to "represent a direct threat to the British public".
TPims replaced control orders in January 2012, amid some controversy.
Home Office minister James Brokenshire said: "We do not believe his disappearance is linked to any terrorism planning in the UK."
He added: "The Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measure in this case was intended to prevent fundraising and overseas travel."

Hello Abu Hamza, I'm Your Roommate Bubba
I love the smell of soap-on-a-rope in the morning:
He once described Britain as a "toilet" -- now, radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri is to be flushed out of the UK legal system and into a potential life sentence in America, the end of an era for perhaps London's most famous anti-Western preacher.It's about time. Let's just hope he's on the next plane out of Heathrow. I have a feeling he's going to find a federal prison less comfortable than the ones in the UK.
After nearly a decade of legal battles, a European court has ruled that the one-eyed, hook-handed al-Masri, who was convicted in a British court and jailed in 2006 for a variety of terror-related crimes, can be extradited to face terror charges in the U.S.
Which reminds me of the only funny joke from the movie Mallrats. It had to do with the Ben Affleck character having a certain predilection in which he lured vulnerable young women into having sex in an uncomfortable place.
The punchline being: You mean like in the back of a VW Bug?
Yeah, that was a good line.

Shoe Bomb Conspirator Turns State's Evidence, Sentence Reduced
I'm conflicted: on the one hand, this guy conspired with Richard Reid to blow up an airplane! On the other hand, now he's going to testify against Adis Medunjanin, who's being tried in NYC as we speak (see below).
So, worst case scenario is that Saajid Badat gets out of a British jail early while a guy who threatened America gets a longer sentence.
Yeah, I can live with that. My apologies to British readers, but this appears to be a zero sum game: our win is your loss. That kinda sucks, no?

The firebrand cleric even praised the terror gang as “decent young chaps”.
Choudary claimed he had no idea they planned to kill and maim.
Great News: al Qaeda's #1 Guy in UK to be Released
Forget sending him to Jordan, why not deport him to Yemen or Somalia? Then, send in the drones!
A British court ruled Monday that an extremist cleric described as one of Europe’s leading al-Qaida operatives should be released on bail.I don't like torture. I don't condone it. But, you know what? I'm more concerned with human life.
After six years in custody, Abu Qatada could be freed within days for three months under stringent conditions, a judge at the Special Immigration Appeals Commission in London said.
Abu Qatada has been fighting to be released after the European Court of Human Rights ruled last month he should not be deported to face terror charges in Jordan due to concerns that evidence obtained by torture would be used against him.
When concerns about torture trump concerns for human life, they you know you are on the quick path to civilization suicide.

Baum admitted a single count of possession of Inspire magazine, featuring an article called "39 ways to participate in jihad".

Irony: Group That Supports Government Censorship Laments Conviction of Terror Propagandist
Ahmed Faraz, who published and disseminated propaganda for terrorists in the UK, has been convicted and sentenced to three years. From his bookshop in Birmingham the material he distributed ended up in the hands of, well, just about every unsavory character in the UK:
His customers included Mohammed Sidique Khan, the leader of the July 7 bomb plot, and members of the trans-Atlantic airline gang, who quoted from his texts in their suicide videos.I'm not sure how I feel about laws banning books, but I do know I feel no remorse for this piece of crap.
His books were found among the belongings of Habib Ahmed, a key al-Qaeda lieutenant from Manchester, and Andrew Ibrahim, who planned to blow up a shopping centre in Bristol.
Among a series of raids on the bookshop was one in 2007 as part of an investigation into a plot to kidnap and behead a Muslim solider.
I can't say the same about the evildoers over at Cageprisoners, the "human rights" group which is really a front for terror supporters. The same people who would like to outlaw blasphemy, end freedom of religion, and curtail other basic freedoms lament the state of civil liberties in the UK:
The implication of this case, which is essentially about books and ideas, presents a highly disturbing vision for the future of freedom of expression in Britain. If ideas are deemed controversial, the solution is to debate them, not ban them. Furthermore, if these books are now banned, what will the authorities do with the confiscated stock? One can only assume they will be destroyed – they will be burned.If that's not hubristic hypocrisy, I don't know what is!
UPDATE: Randy adds some more context:
For those of you keeping track of Guantanamo detainees, this very same bookstore was once owned by Moazzam Begg -- the former Gitmo resident who now runs Cageprisoners.
So, it's not just any old jihadi bookstore.

Abu Izzadeen (Trevor Brooks) Arrested Again
Trevor "Abu Izzadeen" Brooks
Anjem Choudary is claiming that Abu Izzadeen, born Trevor Brooks, has been arrested. The announcement was made on Facebook:
Abu Izzadeen has just been arrested by the khnzeer police. Please make dua that he is released asapNo official announcement has been made by either the British police or by Muslims Against Crusades, the group run by Choudary and Izzadeen. But other Facebook friends of Izzadeen are making the same claim.
Izzadeen served 3 1/2 years for supporting terrorism. Recently Izzadeen's website at Muslims Against Crusades website featured an article asking whether the assassination of President Barrack Obama was legal. This image of the President as he's about to be killed by a sniper rifle was used to promote the article.
If any one knows anything about Izzadeen's arrest, please let us know.
Update by Howie 11/03/2011: Express reports that Izzadeen was arrested for violating the conditions of his probation.
Extremists are known to be planning an event entitled Hell For Heroes – mocking the charity for injured soldiers Help For Heroes – outside the Royal Albert Hall.
It is the same location where a poppy was burned last year, prompting widespread outrage. Demonstrator Emdadur Choudhury, 26, who set fire to the poppy, was fined £50. It is understood Izzadeen, of Leyton, east London, allegedly breached rules over telling police about his home and work addresses.
The protesters, who have sought permission from police to hold the rally, aim to disrupt the minute’s silence held in honour of the war dead.

Good News: Up to 20 Female Suicide Bombers on the Loose in the UK
I'm not exactly sure what to make of this British tabloid article on a police sweep that netted dozens of women in the UK who were involved in what looks like a massive suicide bombing plot. There's no real time frame given for the events, but it appears that a number of women were arrested, let go, and then followed in order to map out the terrorist networks they were embedded in. After which dozens more were put under surveillance.
The scary part is that women as young as 17 were recruited as suicide bombers. I take that back, the real scary part is that the article claims that at least 20 more potential suicide bombers are on the loose and in the UK.
The thinking is that because officers feared "Muslim sensitivities" that women in burkas were much less likely to be given security scrutiny. If true, it's like the UK is living in bizarro world:
But it is feared there are at least 20 of the Black Widow bombers still at large and ready to carry out their deadly missions.I know we're always being warned that if you profile people then the bad guys will just recruit people who don't meet the profile. But, then again, if you don't profile people their recruiting efforts just become that much easier.
A senior security source said: “The terrorists rely on a woman in a black flowing dress not being stopped. They can’t be searched easily because of their strict rules and it’s hard to see what they are hiding under their robes.
“A lot of people would think twice about searching them for fear of offending religious rules or being accused of sexual harassment or indecency."

Would-be British Airway Bomber in Regular Contact with Awlaki
Rajib Karim worked for British Airways and was in regular contact with al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula's spiritual leader Anwar al-Awlaki. What could possibly go wrong?
An Islamic extremist landed a job as a British Airways computer expert with the aim of blowing up a plane bound for America, a court heard.If you aren't familiar with the specifics of the case, you really do need to read the whole thing. Karim seems to have come to the UK under the pretense of getting cancer treatments for his son -- at taxpayers' expense. When doctors found out that his son didn't really have cancer, the British government still granted him a work visa -- even though he had raised funds for the al Qaeda linked Jamaat-ul Mujahideen Bangladesh!
Rajib Karim, 31, is accused of plotting with terror mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki to commit a ‘spectacular’ atrocity that would lead to ‘widespread loss of life’.
Desperate for martyrdom, the Bangladesh-born fanatic volunteered to train as cabin crew in the hope of blowing up aircraft, it was alleged.
The software engineer is also said to have planned to hijack BA computer systems to ground flights, causing chaos for millions of passengers.
Karim had already begun to build a terror cell in Britain, recruiting a baggage handler from Heathrow Airport and a security guard, it was claimed.

What is a Fatwa?Pleeze, kaffirs understand taqiyya/doublespeak! The wording won't get you off the hook, so to speak:
There is great confusion among many non-muslims about the meaning of the word 'Fatwa'. It has often been misunderstood to simply mean a 'death sentence' or something similar. In fact this is not the case at all, a fatwa is actually an Islamic verdict derived from the Islamic texts in answer to a specific question. This could be a ruling about the correct way to pray, keep a beard or a marital dispute and could also be an answer to problems of government, crime, law and order or politics.

British Airways Worker Offered To Be A Splodey Dope/Advised Terrorists of Airlines Weaknesses
A British Airways computer expert who is alleged to have offered himself as a suicide bomber appeared in court today to deny terrorism charges.I'm sure family/friends of unexploded dope feels he is really a nice person and stuff. He was just doing the will of Allah & Allah's bud Mo, the pedophile.
Rajib Karim, 31, of Newcastle upon Tyne, remains in custody and is due to go on trial on January 24 at Woolwich Crown Court in south east London.
Bangladesh-born Karim appeared via videolink today at the Old Bailey where he pleaded not guilty to two charges of preparing for terrorism.
Each count covers the period from April 13 2006 to February 26 2010 and includes the allegation that he 'offered to be a martyr or suicide bomber'.
The first charge alleges that he engaged in conduct in preparation of terrorism, with the intention of committing acts of terrorism, including that he 'incited the giving of permission to carry out terrorist acts in the United Kingdom'.

Radical Muslimah Roshanara Choudhry: YouTube Made Me Do It
No, YouTube didn't make you stab MP Stephen Timms . What they did do is place terrorist propaganda under "free speech" and continue to do so. For example, I did a YouTube search for Anwar al-Awlaki, who YouTube claims are removing his videos, and was given several choices so I chose anwar al awlaki 2010:
Note, the top one "featured videos":
Miss Choudhry, a talented student, was jailed for life on Wednesday following the attack, which occurred at Mr Timms's constituency surgery in Beckton, east London in May.Hell, there are so many JihadTubers that Jawa needed it's own category for them
In interviews with officers, she disclosed how YouTube had pointed her to incendiary clips of al-Qaeda terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki, with whom she soon became obsessed.
Choudhry said she had been viewing "interesting" life stories of YouTube users describing how they became Muslim when al-Awlaki's sermons appeared as related content on the site.
As the impressionable 21-year-old watched she became "surprised at how little I knew about my religion" and "motivated to learn more".
After watching hundreds of hours of extremist propaganda online in just six months, she decided to kill in revenge for Britain's involvement in the Iraq war.
Her comments to officers, reported by The Guardian, lay bare just how quickly and easily the young woman, who did not attend a mosque, had become radicalised after the discovering videos of extremist preachers.
As BigPeace said: "Shame on you YouTube, shame on you"

Cargo Planes Bomb Plot: 'Seconds From Lockerbie II'
According to this article at ExpressUK, the plot was uncovered in *Afghanistan:
AL Qaeda bomb plotters hoped to stage a Lockerbie-style outrage over Britain. Explosives found inside a modified printer ink cartridge on board a cargo plane at East Midlands Airport were primed to detonate in mid-air. The device was active when counter-terror police swooped on the aircraft early on Friday.Certainly makes me wonder about the inbound flight from Dubai escorted by M-15's. I realize they didn't find anything after it was checked but still, rather unnerving.
Yemen-based terrorists had built the bomb to go off in British air space, just like the Lockerbie atrocity of 1988 which killed 270 people.
Home Secretary Theresa May yesterday said: “I can confirm that the device was viable and could have exploded. The target may have been an aircraft and had it it detonated, the aircraft could have been brought down.” Security chiefs initially believed the bomb, which was to be activated via a timer, was destined for a synagogue in the US[...]
*The alert was triggered by intelligence from a unit of GCHQ surveillance experts stationed in Afghanistan, the Sunday Express can reveal. Operating from a converted shipping container in Helmand, the team picked up the words “A wedding gift is being delivered”.
The phrase is an Al Qaeda code meaning a bomb is in transit.[Emphasis mine..ed]
With the help of Saudi agents, GCHQ alerted MI6, which raised the alarm in London and Washington. Counter-terror police intercepted the United Parcel Service plane bound from Yemen to Chicago when it stopped to refuel at East Midlands Airport at 3am on Friday. The suspect package was found with wires protruding from it and connected to mobile phone components. A similar device was found on board another plane in Dubai.
Many thanks to all who aided in thwarting this plot, awesome job!!
Thanks to Intelwire
Update by Jane: The significance of this scenario if true is that it would pin the attack back to Afghanistan/ Pakistan border area. The most significant global terror event prior to the UPS plot was the al Qaeda summit in Wazeristan that brought together Saif al Adel, Saed bin Laden, a variety of characters including Brits and Germans and our Yemen representative, the potentially former Fahd al Quso.
And this would make sense to the extent that AQAP learned to handle PETN from a Pakistani bomb expert, and there was another Pakistani who trained them on poison gasses, according to the governor of Abyan in an interview last year.
In related news, investigators are taking a second look at the recent UPS cargo plane crash in Dubai on 9/3/10, to the relief of one of our commenters.

For the first time ever, the head of the UK's MI6 has made a public speech. Interesting enough, he claims that the biggest terror threat to the UK comes from abroad. Counterror officials in the US now believe the greatest threat comes from homegrown terrorists.
So which is it?
I can't help but think that both might be right. The UK has a much larger domestic spying capability. In the US, we don't spy on our own citizens. We can investigate them for criminal activity, but not spy.
In the UK they can and do. So, they may have a better pulse on domestic threats and believe they are able to thwart those threats before they mature.
We Yanks? Not so much.
So, our biggest threat is homegrown. Their biggest threat comes from abroad.
It's either that, or one of us is wrong. In which case serious resources are being wasted and our security is at risk.

London Univeristy Whitewashes Islamic Extremism on Campus, Ties to Detroit Bomber
I love how the conclusion of an internal review panel is that the University doesn't "vet" the speakers well enough. They should be vetting the students. It's the student run Islamic Society that invites these speakers, not the university. And Umar Farouq Abdulmutallab, the Christmas Day underwear bomber, was president of that group while there.
Detroit bomber's university should vet speakers better:
During his time at UCL, speakers at the university Islamic Society included two members of the extremist group Hizb ut-Tahrir and one speaker who told students that Osama bin Laden’s argument was “pretty difficult to counter.”A) What's an "illegal view" in the UK?
A report, commissioned by the university, said the student’s union had not adopted a policy of the National Union of Students that would ban extremist groups such as Hizb ut-Tahrir from the campus.
“Speakers with controversial but not illegal views were welcome to the extent that they could be expected to stimulate debate,” it said.
B) "Stimulate debate". Right. Like the University would let a Nazi speak. You know, to "stimulate debate".
And the whitewash/denial goes on:
In internet postings while he was at school Abdulmutallab wrote about conflicts between his religious views and his feelings about women and recounted “jihadist fantasies.”No signs of extremism. Other than the jihad fantasies. Oh, and the inviting extremists to speak. The very extremists these same people study condemn. But other than those two little things, no extremism at all!
But the panel found that he had shown no signs of extremism while at UCL.
I don't blame the University for Abdulmutallab joining al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, that's his fault. But to say there were no signs? Give me a break!

UK Terror Attack "Highly Likely"
The article speaks for itself:
The fresh advice on France's defence ministry website says: "The British authorities consider that the terror threat level is very high in the United Kingdom and that the risk of an attack is highly likely.I'm not sure what the most touristy placed in London are. I've been there a number of times.
"It is recommended to show extreme vigilance on public transport and at the most-visited tourist sites."
My advice: Skip the changing of the guards at Buckingham. It's not worth it.
The London eye is lame.
British Museum: two thumbs up.
Tower of London: super-awesome-o, plus they have a mini version of the changing of the guards and you're like 5 feet from the guy versus behind a crowd of people fifty deep at Buckingham.
Piccadilly Circus: weeeeak
Soho: weeeak + sleazy
Anyway, keep an eye out and be safe.
