UK Terror Threat Linked To Pakistan
Steve Soto assesses the news from the UK:
Note that the suspects are all homegrown in Britain with ties to George W. Bush’s favorite partner in the war on terror, Pakistan, a country that continues to harbor Osama Bin Laden and A. Q. Khan. Also note that the Washington Post never mentions the Pakistani connection to these suspects. The plot appears to several terrorism experts to be an Al Qaeda follow up operation to the 9/11 attacks on the fifth anniversary, and the plotters appear to have been at work on this for months, calling into question exactly how well we have disrupted their ability to carry out coordinated attacks. Looks like that war in Iraq was a winner, huh?
