the facts today...but Snow refused to even discuss it said to move on....I heard it from other sources I trust as well...Peter B Collins, and a few others...The timing was a perfect set up to offset the 60% poll about Iraq & Lamonts victory...I fucking know it's true, I can smell the bullshit from 3000 miles away and it is all bullshit...It'll come out just like all the tens of other bullshit made up, terrorist false alarms when Bushco needs them to divert attention, just watch...A guy blew up a plane using the same technique ten years ago...this isn't some new information, concept or invention...Where has all the shaving cream and shampoo confiscation been for the last five years....But a lot of people need to be voulentarily blind...just need to believe the lies and BushCo's bullshit!!! Does it make them feel safer?

15. Well, EarlG just posted:
...

Tony Snow admitted today that the Bush administration knew in advance about the investigation into this plot. They knew that arrests were coming, and they knew that they could use those arrests to maximum effect. Once the arrests were announced, the floodgates opened. It seemed like every single prominent Republican got up in front of a camera today to lambast the Democrats for being "weak on terror."

14. Exactly...
"Got DASANI bottled water stocks?"
Is more like it.
Some marketing analyst figured out how
much water people drink on flights and
the used this "plot" to boost the shareholders
profits.
AS IF, they actually cared what happens to
civilians any where on the planet?

Remember the duct tape fire sale
as promoted by ASHCROFT?

I would guess Chertoff is on the board
of Dasani/Coca-cola before I would
believe that they care about us.

5. Well, it appears that the Brits have been investigating...
...the plot for over a year and have had an agent infiltrated into the ring for many months. No doubt the Brits informed the US about what was going on. I'm not sure, therefore, what Malloy is specifically referring to, because it seems everyone knew about it long before last Friday.

6. The Brits said they've known about it for MONTHS
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 10:27 PM by rocknation
in which case I don't know why they let things escalate to the point where the airports had to go on red alert. I hope this isn't another Florida 7 sting gone bad.

8. read this #1 story in greatest pg..they knew since december!
#1 story on greatest page by Sabra

WH Official: "Weeks before September 11th, this is going to play big"

http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20060810/pl_afp/britainatta ...

<snip>

But Bush's Republicans hoped the raid would yield political gains.

"I'd rather be talking about this than all of the other things that Congress hasn't done well," one Republican congressional aide told AFP on condition of anonymity because of possible reprisals.

"Weeks before September 11th, this is going to play big," said another White House official, who also spoke on condition of not being named, adding that some Democratic candidates won't "look as appealing" under the circumstances.




according to the Guardian, they've been monitoring this for several months:



http://www.guardian.co.uk/uklatest/story/0,,-6006659,00 ...

<snip>

Details of the plot only emerged for the first time in the early hours. But police later revealed the arrests followed an "unprecedented level of surveillance" - stretching back to December last year - involving meetings, movements, travel, spending and the "aspirations of a large group of people".

9. Blair is such a lap dog
that Shrub got him to delay exposing the so-called plot until the campaign season in the U.S. began - and it began big time with Lieberman losing. The Repukes needed this to pummel the Dems.

Bush seeks political gains from foiled plot
by Olivier Knox
Aug 10, 2006
http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20060810/pl_afp/britainatta...

<snip>

Snow said Bush first learned in detail about the plot on Friday, and received two detailed briefings on it on Saturday and Sunday, as well as had two conversations about it with British Prime Minister Tony Blair.
