Scotland Yard Releases Information on Foiled Terror Plot

Hosted by

Americans are still reeling over the conspiracy to blow up airliners leaving England for the United States. There’s still no word on when the coordinated bombings were scheduled to occur, but there is more information on who’s been arrested.  That’s because the Bank of England froze their assets and released some of their names.  They include a baker, toy-shop worker, biochemist, bookkeeper and second-car salesman.  Two or three were white Anglos who converted to Islam as adults.  We get an update, and hear about the Pakistani connection and the gaps in US intelligence capabilities.
