UK Channel 4 News: Terror Raids brought forward due US Intel
Just heard on UK More4 (Channel4) News that the decision to stage the terror raids today was based on intelligence from the US. The US info apparently made it seem that the threat was immediate and that the terror attacks had been brought forward.

13. All the Republicans who are back home campaigning will now
be able to grandstand ad nauseum that this country is safer with the GOP in charge. My, my. That did work out well for them.

2. terrorist arrests
I hope everyone is reminded that this was due to intel and police work, not military action.

3. Remember

Jose Padilla - apparently making a dirty bomb...

Operation Swarmer - the biggest aerial assault since the beginning of the Iraq War - and what was there - nothing except fields.

Foiled Attack on "Liberty Tower"...

The Forestgate terror raid - the biggest police raid in UK history - 250 police officers to arrest two innocent men.

Miami 7 - planning a "ground war against America" - yeah right

Let's wait and see how this thing shakes out.

7. intel
I think it was Brit. intel anyway. Bushco and intel in the same sentence is an oxymoron.

9. Seems that US, UK and Pakistan
were working together.

This has happened before that the US has caused arrests to happen early in the UK (I think the last time was when
Tom Ridge blew the cover of some informant forcing the UK's hand to move in prematurely on an investigation).

10. Another 'Slam Dunk'...
and the word 'stage' also has a nice ring to it.

12. CNN just said Pakistan
I suspect the story will be fluid for some time before it solidifies.
