BBC & Skye: reporting that Blair/Bush discussed this plot in July
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 04:53 AM by maddezmom
when Blair was in DC. I guess timing is everything, just seems a bit odd this goes down while they both are on vacation. :shrug:

1. With Lamont's big win in CT
BushCo needs another distraction.

Plus hurricane season is turning out to be a dud, so we're back to terra.

2. if they knew this was going down, you'd think they'd have a plan in
place. But as usual, complete chaos is occuring at the airports. And they both are on vacation. :eyes:

5. The Brits have arrested 21 people
supposedly involved in a plot to blow up planes (up to 10) flying from Britain to the US. They are saying that some type of liquid explosive was to be used.

I'm glad we're fighting them over there, so we don't have to fight them over here. :eyes:

Oh, and did I mention they are saying it's probably al Qaeda.

10. This sounds like
a repackaging of the "Bojinka" plot from '96.

11. Ah that plot, OK, but I was thinking of
The discussion at the BBC about this being discussed in July. If this is a long term 'planned' operation, I wondered what the media said about the prelude to todays alert.
I know about the 'planned attack', it's big news here in Norw. too.

An article says Bush and Blair was continuosly briefed about the operation before the alert and also the Blair had authorized the clampdown personally.

7. And coming on the day * starts his fall campaigning
makes the timing even more interesting. The administration's use of terror alerts (as a political ploy) in the past is well documented, and something they admitted to doing.

8. In the words of
my better half, 'oh fugg, more fugging diversion'. Poodle's parliament is about to convene to deal with him and Poodle and W need any diversion to let Israel continue bombing the Lebanese. Fugg it all. I can't take much more of this crap.
