Terror Plot Involves Islamic Extremists; Police Have 'Crystal Clear' Picture of Suspect
ABC News ^ | 06/29/2007 | Brian Ross and Richard Esposito

Posted on 06/29/2007 12:24:05 PM PDT by Sleeping Freeper

British police have a "crystal clear" picture of the man who drove the bomb-rigged silver Mercedes outside a London nightclub, and officials tell the Blotter on ABCNews.com he bears "a close resemblance" to a man arrested by police in connection with another bomb plot but released for lack of evidence. Officials say the suspect had been taken into custody in connection with the case of al Qaeda operative Dhiren Barot (pictured), who was convicted of orchestrating a vehicle bomb plot involving targets in London, New York, Newark, N.J. and Washington, D.C.

Officials say a surveillance camera caught the suspect "staggering from the Mercedes" shortly after parking it outside the Tiger Tiger nightclub.

U.S. and British law enforcement officials tell ABC News it is increasingly clear Friday's bomb plot in London involves multliple vehicles, and is described by a senior official as a "terror plot involving lslamic extremists."

Officials say the cell phones failed to initiate the explosions, even after each phone had been called twice.

Somebody got real lucky here.

Their liberals probably fought for his release, so he could act again.

I thought he would look more like my 70+ mother-in-law who was frisked at the airport because her knee replacements set of the metal detector.

I had it pulled. That's not the suspect...it's his friend from the other case mentioned.

Second car, a Mercedes, discovered to have bomb in it also. They are using expensive wheels these days ... guess it helps them avoid being stopped!

It's a damned shame that the only thing the Traitors Gate is used for anymore is attracting tourists.

A few boiled muzzie heads being picked apart by crows would likely put a stop to this crap.

Incompetent local Muzzies.

Didn't have help thanks to the global war disrupting their networks.

It would have been much worse without the ongoing efforts.

"The silver Mercedes sedan discovered early Friday morning outside the Tiger Tiger nightclub in Piccadilly Circus appears to have been stolen in early June and was spotted in the last two days, first in Scotland and then in Birmingham, England, according to law enforcement officials."

We're fortunate they're not smart.

Remember the first WTC guy who went to get his deposit on the truck that was blown up.

What a waste of a Mercedes. Why not a Yugo? Obviously, they had a lot of money. Look for a Saudi connection.

Sounds like the terrorist sleeper cells here in Northern Virginia have been up to no good lately. Perhaps hoping to replicate the Bali bombings in DC, NY, and London.

Then again, terrorists are always up to no good.

It is not going to happen here ... they don’t want to foil the agenda of Pelosi and Reid. Now after the elections and (IF) Consertives re-take the WH and Congress ... watch out!

No one should be surprised at either one. The more England, Europe and the rest of the world embraces Islam, the more problems the world will have. Just a matter of time before this cult hits here.

Keep it handy for the second car bomb. (I eard they found a third suspicious car, but they might just be playing it safe.

I am not getting this. I read and re read, but is the guy ‘pictured’ the one our guy was in ‘connection’ with... or is the photo our guy?
