Heathrow Anti-Terror Plans 'Found at Petrol Station'
Sheesh, it seems like the world's security is in the hands of the Keystone Cops these days. Are they purposely being idiots? You can't make this stuff up!

A top-level police investigation was under way tonight after a secret dossier containing counter-terror plans for Heathrow Airport was found lying abandoned in a road.

Home Secretary David Blunkett described the disappearance of the papers, which were found near a petrol station close to the airports perimeter fence, as very bad.

The document, which Mr Blunkett said was genuine, was discovered by a motorist flapping at the roadside and handed to The Sun newspaper.

It reportedly showed 62 sites at the airport where al Qaida was most likely to launch anti-aircraft missile strikes and included key facts about escape routes, evacuation plans and road closures.

5. Bush has already forgotten his "Football"
I believe he forgot it at the Vatican when he visited the Pope.
