1. Only on commercial flights from the UK.
Things are a mess here. Heathrow and the surrounding areas are completely gridlocked.

12. Lemont seems pretty good but he is also of the same power elite
They all come from the same cookie cutter life. That is sort of a worry as no one hardly think one new thought. It is not just the US it is how modern society is. Or did I read to much social study in college? We all could use some new brains in the gov. to my way of thinking.

9. They are working on his speech before they wake him up
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 04:35 AM by Bluebear
He gets nasty if he's not allowed to sleep off his bender, you know. Anyhow, the speech will be replete with smoke 'em outs and terror and 9/11 and Iraq would have been a training ground and Blair and friendship to those who are with us and this proves how desperate the terraists are.

Intelligence agencies under control of Blair's Government. If it is real. The last plot they uncovered was a farce.

8. Polls are down, the elections are coming up; must raise terra alert!
As to Bush he's never available when emergencies (real or fabricated) occur. He's either on one of his dozen annual vacations or reading kiddie books.

11. I don't think I take it seriously.
Mostly because I don't think that, even with multiple planes going down in the same general time period, this just isn't spectacular enough and not enough loss of life to make them happy. Its just not on the same level with the World Trade Center. I think this is misdirection; I just don't know whether its our government or the terrorists doing the misdirection.

18. if the 'evil plot' HAD occurred, there would have been little if any
juicy footage for the newsies. too 'distant' to really affect the general public. i'm pretty certain there will end up being major finger-pointing at iran real soon over this.

13. This had damn well better pan-out, fact wise!!
If there are glaring holes in the verifiable facts in this story, it can only be an elaborate cover of the news coming out about NORAD/Cheney stories...

29. Quite so AB.... as you read this story it pays to consider what you are..
... not reading about.

Yesterday NORAD closed Cheyenne Mountain HQ and held a press junket from the look of things. Did it occur to anyone to ask any actual questions?

15. British lapdogs of America.
Rather convinent that there's a TERRORIST PLOT right when Lamont owns Republician lapdog Liberman. Wow, heard that the terrorists were British citizens. Mabey the're opposed to Republicians screwing up the whole world? Damn terrorist leftie tree-huggers. Eww, eww, coporate america is poisoning the environment. Eew, eew, the Democrats might win the american vote. Eww, eew, some angry british citizens had to be 'Black Bagged' to keep them from being Pissed at the government. Desperate, desperate people who have been complaining too much, plotting to blow up a plane like the've been planning to do for the PAST 30 YEARS! Their "Monitored Communication' show how the've been complaining for the past few decades. Bag'EM UP! Knock them around for the next decade, then they won't complain so much. Show THEM about terrorists! After the first few months, they won't be so eager to complain about AMERICA's GOVERNMENT is doing to the world. I think killing people is wrong, but most of these people were complainers. Jackjawing and hating on the GOD of THE WORLD, AMERICA! Lock those scumbags up for their hating ways. NEVER let them see the light of day again!

21. Black bagged?
Blackbagged is what you do to hide the faces of the people you're arresting, so the rest of the citizens don't get upset when the people you're arresting are fat and white. It's common sence. After all, the're not criminals. The're not soldiers. The're like those people in guantanimo-bay wheather the're innocent or not. I believe that we are trying to fight a political war with people that are fighting a religous war. We need to fight them with a Christian army, not a Republician army. We don't need priviates and colonels, we need heavily-armed christian-acolytes commanded by heavy-artillary bishops. If republicians fight this war, all that will happen is we waste alot of money.

17. British automatic weapons?
How does that work? They had british automatic weapons? No-one in britian can own a gun with more than 2 shots in it. Must of been stolen from MI-5. Dammned british terrorists. Desperate, desperate animals, vicious creatures with their 380 lb. weight problems and fat-clogged arteries.

23. I wonder if any "put options" were made on British Airlines
as was done on American airliners prior to Sept. 11th. Will be an interesting angle to observe.

27. Bush admin has known of this for weeks and raises to RED only now???
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 06:12 AM by Roland99
Lying fuckers!!

No details on the "plot"

No details on how long the restrictions will be in place.

No details on the "terrorists"



No gels, no liquids, hell, not even toothpaste can be taken onboard flights now.


What a clusterfuck!


NBC just interviewed two people and one guy was a total freeper saying he's glad that security is working and found this out and apparently doesn't mind the massive delays.
