Happy to see a potential disaster overted. Hopefully we can find that fine line between protection and liberty soon.
Meanwhile, two men were arrested today in anti-terror raids in Manchester, police said.
Greater Manchester Police made the arrests in raids on three houses in Cheetham Hill, Manchester at 6am.
There are no links to the raids in London and the south east of England, a GMP spokesman said.
The arrests are linked to raids that took place on August 23 when one man was held and a house on Elmfield Street, Cheetham Hill, was searched.
He is still being held by police under anti-terrorism legislation.
A spokesman for GMP said: "Greater Manchester Police's Anti-Terrorist Unit has today Saturday 2 September, 2006 executed three search warrants under the Terrorism Act 2000.
"Two men have been arrested and searches are now taking place at three addresses in the Cheetham Hill area of Manchester.
"Officers made the arrests at 6am this morning.
"The arrests are linked to the operation that took place on 23 August. It is in connection with an ongoing investigation and has been carried out acting on intelligence
Mehreen Haji, 25, of Elmfield Street, Cheetham Hill was arrested at a house in Radcliffe last week.
Her arrest came just days after her partner Habib Ahmed was charged with attending a Pakistani terrorist training camp and detailing information about possible terrorist targets on computer.
Today police confirmed the woman had been charged with two counts of "entering into an arrangement as a result of which '2,005 was made available to Habib Ahmed knowing or having reasonable suspicion that it would, or might be used for the purposes of terrorism, contrary to section 17 of the Terrorism Act 2000" on May 11 and May 12 this year.

I'm curious, would it be possible to 'do a CSI' on the image and be able to read the text of document he's holding?

Amazes me that Sky withheld this until the anti terror raids took place.

Apparently these raids were brought forward because the UK's most senior anti-terrorist police officer, Bob Quick, was photographed in Downing Street with secret documents on display.
See the BBC Report.
This has happened before... remember when the Housing Minister was photographed with a document predicting a significant dip in house prices over the next year or so.
If there's one place you'd expect to be photographed by the press, it'd be Downing Street

Any chance of seeing those documents do you think? Checked wiki leaks to no avail.
It's bound to happen anway, once Muslim populations starts growing the sepretist agenda starts, it happens all over the world.
