Apparently a "Mumbai type" terror attack in Europe was foiled.
Intelligence sources revealed that militants based in Pakistan, thought to be linked to Al Qaeda, were planning simultaneous strikes on and other European cities.
The plot was in the "advanced but not in the imminent stages"
Notice how vague all that is? "thought to be linked to Alqaeda"?
Despite the claim that "plotters had been tracked by spy agencies for some time, the intelligence sources said."
The intelligence sources said? No names? No one wants to take credit for this spectacular arrest?
And despite being tracked, it is just a thought that this is Al Qaeda linked.
Hhm! Maybe it is not really a thought, maybe it was a feeling, a tea leaf reading???
The plot was in the "advanced but not imminent" stage.
Advanced, another vague term. How advanced? Define advanced? Somebody write a note to someone else? Did someone buy a book that could be construed as being connected to "terrorism" Did someone attend a service at a mosque? How advanced?
No mention, no clarification.
Luckily the US has been bombing Pakistan and killing all manner of persons. Because somehow this "pre-emptive" bombing of Pakistan may have actually prevented any more advancement of the planning of this attack? Or so follows the logic?
Terror plot against Britain thwarted by drone strike
Except, the drone attacks in Pakistan have been killing a lot of innocent people for some time now. Oh and there is another problem. The US likes to pretend they are not attacking Pakistan, even though they are making war on Pakistan regularly.
It is all good you see, since the US preemptively attacks Pakistan they have prevented a terror attack in Europe. Are you following that logic?
Yes, the latest attacks left 60 Dead as Helos, Drones Strike in Pakistan (But Don’t Call it a War)
