Posted on 06/30/2007 3:03:00 PM PDT by jdm
U.S. law enforcement officials received intelligence reports two weeks ago warning of a possible terror attack in Glasgow against "airport infrastructure or aircraft," a senior US law enforcement officials tells the Blotter on ABCNews.com.
The intelligence reports also warned that airports and aircraft in the Czech Republic could be the targets of al Qaeda-connected terrorists.
The warnings were kept secret for operational reasons, according to officials. In public, the White House and Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff have continued to maintain they know of no specific or credible threats involving the United States, even though the intelligence reports specify US aircraft as possible targets.
A US official told ABCNews.com that the intelligence reports led to the assignment of Federal Air Marshals to flights into and out of both Glasgow and Prague.
Air marshals had been added to flights into and out of Germany late last month, based on similar warnings.
ABC news reporting the London incident is linked and a bystander is shown saying one of the perps was shouting Allah, Allah, Allah.

To be fair, the man on fire at the scene may have been shouting 'ouch, ouch, ouch!'
I think the one being burned was screaming “Aloe, Aloe, Aloe!”
That’s even funnier. LOL.
That’s 10x funnier than my ‘ouch!’ Maybe 100x funnier! Kudos and thanks for a great laugh! :-)
One in the same? I guess it depends on how perverted someone is....
Did ABC leak this, OR was it part of the ABC-Pentagon PR plan?
Thats British, right?
That Michael Chertoff would know ANYTHING would suprise me.
I thought it was “ALLAH~~~ALLAH~~~FUBAR~~~”...;0)
Obvioulsy a Rovian directed plot to instill hate and fear in the peace lovers of the world.
We all now know that the War on Terror isn’t real, it is just a Bumper Sticker Slogan.
John Edwards wouldn’t lie, would he? *sarc off*
Here is the real laugh - ABC had a ‘Special Report’ on this airport attack during the Busch NASCAR race - after 5:00 pm.
This attack was reported and followed by FReepers at 1:04 pm.
Right on the ball MSM !
The bystander himself , who is French, was saying “Oh,la, la”!
Our so-called "intelligence agencies" give themselves way too much credit.
From you that is a high compliment! :^)
