25 Brits in jet bomb plots (returning Yemen to UK early 2010-await instructions)
The Sun ^ | December 27, 2009 | ANTHONY FRANCE Crime Reporter and ALEX WEST

Posted on 12/27/2009 4:26:08 PM PST by maggief

COPS fear that 25 British-born Muslims are plotting to bomb Western airliners.

The fanatics, in five groups, are now training at secret terror camps in Yemen.

It was there London-educated Umar Abdulmutallab, 23, prepared for his Christmas Day bid to blow up a US jet.

The British extremists in Yemen are in their early 20s and from Bradford, Luton and Leytonstone, East London.

They are due to return to the UK early in 2010 and will then await internet instructions from al-Qaeda on when to strike.

A Scotland Yard source said: "The great fear is Abdulmutallab is the first of many ready to attack planes and kill tens of thousands.

About a week ago there was news in Great Britain.

Mumbai is coming to England.

So this is what it’s all about.

Damn these bastards to hell before they take a single innocent life.

With the muzzies gunning for airliners and the muzzies running the WH, you know what? I think I’ll stay out of airplanes.

I’ll wait for President Palin to make us safe again.

Western airliners.

News flash to Janet and Obama: WESTERN includes, but is not limited to the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, but a reasonable person, would put the USA at the top of the list.

Can't be.

Napolitano said Umar acted alone and had no ties to al-Qaeda or terrorist groups.

Brits must be mistaken.

FYI

http://www.calgaryherald.com/news/Montreal+woman+recounts+terror+Flight/2380523/story.html

(Passenger) Chopra said she had seen the man just before the flight took off, because she was standing nearby. She said he looked worried.

“He had his hands on his forehead, and he was thinking very hard. I thought there was something wrong. He was the last person to get on the plane. I was also one of the last ones because I was flying standby.”

Nah,

Or,
Parking car bombs in hospitals or schools

Maybe,
Floating a houseboat against a dam
packed with high explosives
scuttle it, then detonate below water

That's what I would do
If I wanted to cause maximal terror

Pretty tough to stop

LOL. As Miss Marple said elsewhere, we plan to put an agile, courageous Danish film maker who knows how to administer a headlock on every plane.

The part about the system working to keep explosives off the plane is so yesterday.

SNIPPET from THE SUN.co.uk link in post no. 1


"The 25 suspects, of Pakistani and Somali descent, were radicalised in UK mosques.

Some had been to university and studied engineering or computer sciences.

Others were former street gang members.

Special Branch monitored them as they flew to Yemen, in the Middle East, from British airports in the spring and summer.

In almost every case, their tickets were paid for in cash and bought less than a week before travel.

The source added: "Imams would have promised them rewards in heaven for becoming suicide bombers prepared to kill Westerners.""

By the way, why is it OK to bomb/kill people from UAV’s on Pakistan/Afghanisuan border, but water-boarding is criminal? Why is anybody buying any of this Obama Bull-$hit?

And we trust her, now don’t we?

Clown alert: Janet Napolitano says the system worked

Snips: Beginning with her embrace of the impotent euphemism “man-caused disasters” to the hit job on conservatives and veterans that she was forced to apologize for, to her assertion that crossing the border illegally “isn’t a crime per se”, to her boneheaded claim that 9/11 terrorists came in through the Canadian border, Ja-No has confirmed time and again that she’s not ready for prime time.

we have no indication that it’s part of anything larger, but obviously the investigation continues. And we have instituted more screening and what we call mitigation measures at airports. So I would advise you during this heavy holiday season just to arrive a bit early, and to know that we are going to be doing different things at different airports. So don’t expect to do the same thing at one airport when you transfer through to another airport.

But the traveling public — this is my message for you, Candy. The traveling public is very, very safe in this air environment. And while we continue to investigate the source of this incident, I think the traveling public should be confident in what we are doing now.

If the “system” had “worked,” the U.S. consular officials who granted Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab a short-term visa last June would have revoked it immediately upon being informed by his father that he was a Muslim radical with al Qaeda ties.

If the “system” had “worked,” U.S. consular officials would have never granted Abdulmutallab — a rootless, young, single male — a visa in the first place in compliance with State Department visa regulation 214(b):

If the “system” had “worked,” Abdulmutallab would have been barred from the U.S. like he had been barred from Britain.

The “system,” like Napolitano, was an epic fail.

And as predicted, Napolitano also played the “lone nut” card — dismissing the Christmas Day jihadist as a single operator not part of “anything larger” despite his own testimony to the contrary. She’s Obama’s biggest joker. And there’s no Blame-Bush loophole
to weasel through anymore.

Nothing to see here, move along: An Al-Qaida operative in Yemen threatened the United States and said “we are carrying a bomb” in a video posted online four days before the botched Christmas Day attempt to blow up a Northwest Airlines flight.

Al-Qaida member in Yemen issued bomb threat ahead of botched Christmas operation
Star Tribune (AP) ^ | December 27, 2009 | JOSEF FEDERMAN

CAIRO - An Al-Qaida operative in Yemen threatened the United States and said “we are carrying a bomb” in a video posted online four days before the botched Christmas Day attempt to blow up a Northwest Airlines flight.

The video does not contain any clear evidence that the speaker was anticipating Friday's attempt, but it has attracted scrutiny because of reports that the bombing plot may have originated in Yemen.

Ok, this is probably too obvious for government work. However, if “intelligence” knows who the 25 “trainees” are and will be monitoring them upon their return, why not just terminate them on sight ?

For that matter, if they’re running training camps in Yemen why are these camps not becoming closely acquainted with our air strike capability ?

Napolitano's attempts to cover-up the bomber's clear ties to AlQaida and Obama's wishy washy response (he's still on vacation) suggests they know much more about this than they want anyone else to know.

No wonder the Leftwingtards in the regime wanted to ban waterboarding so bad.

Napolitano On Failed Terror Attempt: “The System Worked”

//

MR. ROBERT GIBBS: Well, David, as you mentioned, he’s been briefed very regularly by national security staffers that are with him in Hawaii and has been involved with conference calls to and from the Situation Room since we first learned of this incident on Christmas Day. I’d say the two priorities that the president has right now, first and foremost, ensuring the safety and security of the American people and doing everything that we can and continue to do everything that we can to make sure that that’s happening. And secondly, David, he’s asked for two different reviews to be conducted, which you heard Secretary Napolitano mention. First, digging into this listing—the listing procedures that she talked about, figuring out if the information that the U.S. government had was used properly. But also, to go back and look at the protocols for how listing is done that, as the secretary mentioned, in some cases there are several years old, and ensure that we’re using all the information that we have properly. She mentioned a list of 550,000 people. There’s a smaller list of 400,000 people of which this Selectee list that you mentioned, and the No Fly list, are drawn from. Those two lists encompass about 18,000 people. So you can see there are a series of database universes that list people that are of some concern to several agencies across the government. We want to ensure that information sharing is always happening as it should. And I think secondly, a review to ensure and figure out why a, an individual with the chemical explosive that he had on him could get onto an airliner in Amsterdam and fly into this country. So a listing review and a detection capabilities review so that we can look, going forward, about what has happened now in the past.
