The Brits know how to deal with terrorists. Perhaps the US should do the same. The Brits broke into their home, listened to their phone calls, and used "snnek and peek" searches (enter the home and not leave a trace of their visit) The Brits prevented 10 jest from being tblown out of the sky by using common sense acts to fight these terrorist pigs http://www.nydailynews.com/front/story/443165p-373185c.html Deadly ingredients How Brits uncovered bomb-making material BY JAMES GORDON MEEK in Washington and ADAM LISBERG in New York DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITERS British intelligence agents who secretly broke into the home of a transatlantic bomb plotter discovered chilling samples of the simple materials that could have killed thousands. The liquid ingredients and the common electronic devices that could have been used as detonators were found about 10 days ago, CBS News reported, proving that the terror cell was close to launching its terrifying plan. British anti-terror squads broke up the plot in which travelers carrying simple chemicals in ordinary bottles would have combined them and blown them up in midair on as many as 10 flights between Britain and the U.S. Investigators focused yesterday on two British-born brothers as ringleaders of the plot and their links to Al Qaeda. British newspapers reported that the airline plotters may also be linked to the homegrown suicide bombers who killed 52 in London last summer - perhaps after getting Al Qaeda training. The Sunday Times of London said two subway bombers visited Pakistan at the same time as some of those arrested last week. The Times quoted security sources as saying one of the men rounded up was not only the plot's ringleader but Al Qaeda's top honcho in Britain. He was not identified. "I can't say that Osama Bin Laden was behind it. But we strongly believe this was an Al Qaeda operation," Pakistan Foreign Office spokeswoman Tasnim Aslam told the Daily News from Islamabad. Pakistani intelligence officials have interrogated Rashid Rauf, 25, who was captured last week near the Afghan border, and believe he was working with Al Qaeda leaders within Afghanistan, Aslam said. Yet he dismissed as "speculation" reports that Rauf planned the attacks in consultation with Matiur Rehman, a top Al Qaeda mastermind who is one of Pakistan's most wanted men - and has reportedly set his sights on a spectacular attack on America. Rehman was also a member of Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, an Al Qaeda-affiliated militant group operating in Pakistan. That country's Dawn newspaper reported Friday that the group's leader in Baluchistan Province, Usman Kurd, was arrested in June. Rauf's younger brother, Tayib Rauf, 22, was among 24 suspects arrested in Britain after Rashid was nabbed in Pakistan - as British officials, who had been tracking dozens of potential plotters, moved to stop them from going forward. The Rauf brothers have at least three other siblings, their great-uncle Qazi Amir Kulzum told Britain's Birmingham Post, all born in Britain after their father Abdul Rauf emigrated decades ago from the Mirpur district of Pakistan. British police refused to comment on news reports that another brother was also detained. Aslam denied reports in the Pakistani press that last fall's devastating earthquake provided cover for the plotters to move people and money between the two countries in the guise of earthquake relief. U.S.-led strikes on Afghanistan and Al Qaeda's infrastructure after the 9/11 attacks caused grave damage to the Islamic terror network. With the group and its leader hampered, some experts feared that the next wave of attacks against the West would come from homegrown terrorists inspired by Al Qaeda.
