At least Fox News is airing live news for once. Started to think they'd show reruns even if nukes started going off.

I noticed from the other thread that the UK has sane/logical names for their threat levels. Theirs is not at critical.

Why do we use colors? It isn't the easiest thing to understand at a glance.

I think they only raised it for Aviation, not the General level.

the UK news shows all our airports very slow and congested. Expect cancellations. The plot was not for day - but the security forces are concerned in case there is a back up plan. There is no special concern about aircraft in the air.

I heard "severe" for aviation and high for general.

Definitely need clarification.

The implications on Fox is that the general level is high.

Sky News via Fox News - Liquid Chemical Devices - why liquids are being banned on flights.

  US raises security threat level to "severe"

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is taking immediate steps to increase security measures in the aviation sector in coordination with heightened security precautions in the United Kingdom, the department said in a statement on Thursday.

"For that reason, the United States Government has raised the nation's threat level to Severe, or Red, for commercial flights originating in the United Kingdom bound for the United States," the statement said.

Per Seattle Post Intelligencer The U.S. government raised its threat level to the highest level for commercial flights from Britain to the United States early Thursday in response to a reported terror plot in London and also stepped up the general level for all flights within the U.S. or entering the country.

MI5 has raised the UK threat level to critical - the highest possible.

According to MI5's website, critical threat level means "an attack is expected imminently and indicates an extremely high level of threat to the UK".

as per BBC report

Not likely. Those haven't been popular since Alfred Nobel discovered that they are safer and easier to use soaked into sawdust and bentonite. A more likely candidate would be a nerve agent.

Just in from the IL EOC:

"THE HSAS SECURITY THREAT LEVEL FOR ALL FLIGHTS FROM THE UK TO THE UNITED STATES HAS BEEN RAISED TO THE LEVEL "RED".

ALL OTHER COMMERCIAL FLIGHTS FOR THE UNITED STATES HAS BEEN RAISED TO THE LEVEL "ORANGE"

Nothing further.

Rebel,

I'm worried about this nut and his "so-called religion" in a big way. The events of tonight haven't comforted me in any way, shape or form.

Abby Dinnerjackoff - LOL!

Achmed-dinner offted himself is how I pronounce it.

Wonder if those 8 missing students are involved in this in any way?

Multiple attacks via multiple methods on multiple classes of targets would not be a good thing.

British police say foil plot to bomb aircraft

By Reuters. Thursday August 10, 2006. 07.11am

British police said on Thursday they have thwarted a plot to blow up aircraft in mid-flight between Britain and the United States, arresting a number of people in the London area.

Britain’s security service MI5 raised the threat level to the country to “critical” from “severe”, meaning an attack is expected imminently.

News of the arrests and heightened security threat came amid high international tension over Israel’s war against Hizbollah in Lebanon.

Police said the aim of the plot was to detonate bombs smuggled on board aircraft in hand luggage.

“A major terrorist plot to allegedly blow up aircraft in mid-flight has been disrupted in a joint, pre-planned, intelligence-led operation by the Metropolitan Police anti-terrorist branch and security services,” a London police spokesman said.

He said police believed the intention was particularly to target flights from Britain to the United States.

The BBC said about 18 people were arrested.

The police spokesman could not confirm the figure, saying only that an unspecified number of people had been detained in London during the night. The operation was the culmination of a major covert counter-terrorist operation lasting several months, he added.

Following the arrests, security at all British airports was increased and additional security measures put in place for all flights.

British Prime Minister Tony Blair has come under strong criticism at home and abroad for following the U.S. lead and refusing to call for an immediate ceasefire in the conflict between Israel and Lebanese Hizbollah guerrillas.

The security alert comes 13 months after four Islamist suicide bombers killed 52 people on London’s transport network on July 7 last year.

The Home Office Web Site showed the threat rating had been raised to “critical” from “severe” earlier on Thursday. Britain has a five level rating for security threats, ranging from low to critical, which is the highest level.
