3. The plot was to blow up multiple planes flying from the UK to the US ...
either in one action or in a wave.

The plot was to was to use a "liquid" bomb, one that would explode by chemical reaction. The chemicals were to be brought on by one or more people and mixed/activated in flight.

Heard that on NPR by an interviewed British official. Screw the yanks; goto http://news.bbc.co.uk .

9. Apparently, they arrested them all at home, in their sleep
And police say firearms were not involved.

It sounds like they have no physical evidence whatsoever, so far.

Night-time swoops on suspects

12. 10:17am eastern. . and I'm still waiting
for a shred of factual evidence of this whole operation...

The only things I believe so far:
1) there have been arrests
2) US & UK discussed the operation some time ago.
3) The screaming meamies have thrown air travel into chaos..
