Wave of Attacks Planned

Via Brendan Loy, the Independent UK, says that "hundreds" of people are involved in "waves of attacks." Here's more:

Sources have told The Independent on Sunday that intelligence officers are aware of several active "jihadi" cells around the country ­ including one in east London thought to be unconnected to the suspects arrested last week. Investigators said surveillance in progress since the July 2005 bombings in London had identified the locations of explosives and weapons in quantities sufficient to commit wide-scale atrocities.

John Reid, the Home Secretary, told police chief constables yesterday that there was no room for "complacency or self-congratulation". He added: "As I have said all along, no one should be under any illusion that the threat ended with the recent arrests. It didn't."

* The Sunday Telegraph reported that it had uncovered a dossier of " extremist Islamic literature" at London Metropolitan University, one of whose students was arrested last week. Material included documents advocating jihad and a pamphlet on how to deal with approaches from the security services.

At least the UK press seems more interested in their own security and won't publish the names of the suspects. In the US, we, along with the terrorists would be tipped off. That would send the terrorists scurrying back under the rocks like cockroaches, just waiting for everyone to go to sleep again.
