Why do all Americans assume it's all about the US?
This would have been an attack on planes leaving UK airports and would have had a significant number of Brits among the dead. The airlines mentioned were 3 x US and British Airways. as reported here the plan was to blow them up mid-atlantic so it's not an attack on the US mainland -that aspect has been imagined / talked up by the US media / Govt agencies
This would have been an attack on air travel and passenger confidence in general not just an attack on the US of A.
why is it we only here about the CIA scew ups . the british media is reporting it as joint op and the british security services have been aware of this group for months . and its about time the pakistan security has done somethng useful. Thats not a racist comment im just sick of it being western security services ie:uk and usa doing all the work and noone in the muslim countries sharing the workload
