Hmmmm, 'The Sun'.
Sorry and all MadGreebo but first and foremost let's just remember that 'The Sun' are not exactly our most credible source of news.
It's also worth bearing in mind they are fully into the idea of curtailing individual freedoms here in the UK in pursuit of their idea of
If you read the link it's all stacked with very open ended speculation, it's extremely non-specific and has very little of substance to really claim
anybody was "foiled" trying to actually doing anything.
Note too that no-one official is named as attributed to saying anything of substance.
(and as for pages of Arabic just lying around?
Probably the sort of stuff in the same league as the 'I am an Islamic terrorist, honest' badges they would claim were found lying around, if
it were remotely credible to anyone.
Sorry but knowing 'The Sun' - probably the UK's least reliable national tabloid - it just sounds like the added 'hook' to make grandiose and
sensational claims about someone once seeing no more than a couple of tents which were quickly removed - moved on? - as you say probably if not almost
certainly plane spotters looking for new 'black project' stuff or a glimpse of what's new with Typhoon.
Even tales of pairs of "bolt-cutters" (cooo, don't they make everything sound a little bit more scary, eh) are hardly proof of bin Laden and Co.
being around the joint.
It also seems pretty obviously to me they are just relying on people being ignorant of the fact that Warton has plenty of really serious
security, it has for decades......most of it just not so obvious.)
The big give-away is, as always, that no-one else is reporting this supposedly important story (usually a sign it's a slow news day and this story is
pretty thin at best, totally bogus and serving The Sun in promoting their own agenda(s) at worst).
I could be proved wrong but from what they have offered up here (and the complete silence from all other outlets.......another Murdock outlet using
the 'source' and spewing it out again doesn't count) I'd be very surprised.
