Well it could still be true... read the second part of the original post again. I still say 9/11 was a trap which Bush stumbled right into.
As George Carlin said... "We are being led by a man who knows nothing about history and he is being advised by men who care nothing for it."
The full extent of the terror threat facing Britain became apparent last night as security sources revealed that 'up to two dozen' terror investigations were operating across the country and that a number of suspects associated with last week's plot to bring down 10 airliners remained at large.
A U.K. court extended into next week the detention without charge of suspects arrested in connection with an alleged plot to blow up passenger planes, as leading U.K. Muslims said the country's foreign policy is fueling extremism.
The suspected ringleader of the alleged plot to blow up flights out of Heathrow has provided details that directly link the conspiracy to al-Qaida in Afghanistan, Pakistani officials said yesterday. The interior minister, Aftab Sherpao, said Rashid Rauf had given investigators "many, many clues which link this plan with Afghanistan, especially the al-Qaida of Osama bin Laden".
Police detained a new suspect Tuesday in the alleged plot to blow up jetliners over the Atlantic, the first arrest since authorities detained two dozen people last week and threw Britain’s airports into turmoil by imposing tougher security.
The three _ Mohammed Yasar Gulzar, Mohammed Shamin Uddin and Nabeel Hussain _ were also charged with preparing to commit terrorism by helping in an alleged plan to smuggle explosives aboard the planes, police said.
Eleven people have now been charged on those two counts. Four others were charged with lesser offenses, including having knowledge of a terrorist activity but not disclosing information about it.
