That's an interesting article, it doesn't actually confirm anything other than they have thwarted a suspicion??
"SCOTLAND YARD believes it has thwarted an Al-Qaeda gas attack aimed at ministers and MPs in parliament."
So it's not sure, but they reckon they might have. One word changes a sentance quite a bit.
"Police and MI5 then identified an Al-Qaeda cell that had carried out extensive research and video-recorded reconnaissance missions in
preparation for the attack."
That would be the first al-Qaeda cell to ever be identified if that statement is true. The only other al-Qaeda cell that was identified was proven to
be Mossad trying to create a fake al-Qaeda presence in Palestine. The real terrorist groups don't use the name al-Qaeda because it's a neon sign
over their heads.
Anyway, that just read very wrong to me. Seems more like promotion of the boogyman threat than an actual bust. The chemical, bio attack talk has been
building up and i've always thought that would be the next US attack.
