    The first story excerpted below illustrates again why we can not turn over the apprehension and punishment of Islamic terrorists who are non-citizens to the civilian criminal justice system that failed us so markedly after the 1993 World Trade center bombing. Although three men were convicted in Britain, others went free. We need to have the military services of the United States and our allies deal with these butchers on a war footing and under wartime rules.

    American School Books Redefine 'Jihad' to Exclude Violence -- Where is Media? By Warner Todd Huston | June 8, 2008 - 21:49 ET In yet another example of why the west could be too weak to fight the sort of global terrorism that takes the form of Islamofascism, a textbook monitoring group is charging that American textbooks have been cleansed of mentioning the violence inherent in the Islamic "Jihad." Now, our children will not be taught what "Jihad" truly means, nor that it has been used as an excuse to kill their fellow citizens because our schools have sanitized Islam...

    GLASGOW, Scotland - The fast-moving investigation into failed car bombings in Glasgow and London has swept up at least five physicians and a medical student, officials said Tuesday, including a doctor seized at an Australian airport with a one-way ticket.

None of the plotters arrested so far is named on U.S. terror watch lists that identify potential suspects, according to a senior American counterterror official who spoke on condition of anonymity because...

  • Botched London plot leaves 'gold mine' of clues

    06/30/2007 4:21:08 PM PDT · by Pokey78 · 31 replies · 1,601+ views
    Teams of forensic scientists are poring over two "gold mines" - the Mercedes cars filled with petrol, gas and nails which failed to explode in central London. Last night, scores of specialists were taking the vehicles apart at secret locations, confident they will find crucial clues to the identity of the terrorists. Police expect to find DNA from the bombers and to secure evidence about where the bomb material came from. The car bombs are of the kind used on a daily basis in Iraq but, unlike attacks there, the militants operating in London were not suicide bombers prepared to...

    The “patio gas” bomb defused in Haymarket would have generated a fireball the size of a house and a shock wave spreading out over a diameter of at least 400 yards, explosives experts said today. The propane cylinders and petrol used in the device would have triggered a huge conflagration, as well as causing shrapnel and blast injuries from the exploding car chassis and the nails packed around the bomb, according to Hans Michels, Professor of Safety Engineering at Imperial College, London. Just one 13kg propane canister — the type sold by Calor under the brand name “Patio Gas” —...

    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...

    Sky News sources say one of the first police officers on the scene of the London West End car bomb may have saved dozens of lives by diffusing the explosives before the bomb squad arrived. It is believed the quick-thinking cop recognised that the car was wired to blow up, jumped in and disconnected the trigger device, thought to be a mobile phone. This backs up an eye-witness account of a police officer briefly entering the metallic green Mercedes before running for cover. People are being warned to stay vigilant after the discovery of the "massive" car bomb, which could...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York police took unspecified precautions on Friday after explosives experts in London defused a car bomb packed with gasoline, gas and nails, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said. "We'll take a little bit of extra precaution," Bloomberg said on his weekly radio show on WABC. "We're going to ramp up a little bit, not dramatically. Some you will notice, some you will not." New York normally puts police on heightened alert in response to security incidents in other countries. As a city that has twice been attacked by Islamic extremists -- a truck bombing of the World...
