    U.S. Foiled Repeat of 9/11 in L.A., Chicago

    LONDON — Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, al Qaeda's purported operations chief, has told U.S. interrogators that the group had been planning attacks on the Library Tower in Los Angeles and the Sears Tower in Chicago on the heels of the September 11, 2001, terror strikes.

    Those plans were aborted mainly because of the decisive U.S. response to the New York and Washington attacks, which disrupted the terrorist organization's plans so thoroughly that it could not proceed, according to transcripts of his conversations with interrogators.

    Philippines Prevents 'Madrid-Level' Attack

    Philippine security forces have prevented a "Madrid-level" terrorist attack on malls and trains in Manila, with the arrest of four terrorist suspects and seizure of explosives, President Gloria Arroyo said Tuesday.

    One of the four suspects captured was believed to be the Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG) terrorist who beheaded an American during a hostage crisis three years ago.

    Arroyo told a press conference at an air force base that ASG's "most dangerous cell" had been broken up by the arrests, which reportedly took place in two separate raids.

    Thirty-six kilograms of TNT was seized.

    Britain Scores Major Anti-terror Bust

    LONDON – Police arrested eight men Tuesday and seized a half ton of ammonium nitrate, a fertilizer compound that can be used to make bombs, in raids that may have prevented a major attack in London.

    The arrests in and near London were "a timely reminder that the [United Kingdom] and its interests abroad remain a target," Home Secretary David Blunkett said.

    The operation, with 700 officers raiding two dozen locations, resulted in the largest seizure of potential bomb-making material since the Irish Republican Army suspended its campaign in 1997.

    Police and government officials have been warning for months that a major attack on London was inevitable. Britain's strong support for the war in Iraq makes it a prime target, and there had been fresh calls for vigilance after the Madrid train bombings earlier this month.

    Impossible! How will that account for so many liberals claiming the war on terrorism is counter productive?

    Because it would be more productive to reason with them.
