the government can wiretap anyone they want.

they just need a warrant.

According to the London Daily Mail

Terrorists were planning to unleash a series of deadly mid-air explosions on flights between London and America on August 16, it has been revealed today.

Members of the terror group, who were arrested in a series of raids by anti-terror police yesterday, were due to mount a dry run today to check if they could smuggle components for liquid explosives through Britain's airports.

United Airline tickets dated next Wednesday were found by police at the home of one of the raided addresses.

The youngest of the terror suspects arrested in the raids was a heavily pregnant woman from Hackney, London.

The Asian woman was taken by police handcuffed and still wearing pyjamas from a top floor flat in Denver Road.

It has been reported today that the woman, who has not yet been named, is the wife of Muslim convert Oliver Savant. Eye witnesses described her as five foot tall with braided hair.

One witness said: "I heard a man shout and then the door was knocked through. I looked out of the window and saw a team of armed officers - wearing helmets and goggles - pour out of a black unmarked Mercedes people carrier.

"There were another two vans full of police wearing bullet-proof vests. And there were two guys who looked like intelligence agents who were controlling things."

In another raid, a young woman and her six month-old baby was taken into custody.

Here, here. But's it's worse than that. Some people actually see Bush as THE threat to our our civil liberties.

--Patriot Act. BAD. "dismantling of the Bill of Rights."
--NSA surveillance. BAD. "invades our privacy", "impeachable offense."
--Detaining suspected terrorists. BAD "they should be given all rights under our legal system."
--Interrogation of detainees. BAD. "it's torture."
--Common sense screening of passengers. BAD. "it's profiling."
--Following the money trail of terrorists. BAD. Must be exposed by the NY Times.
--GWB. BAD. "liar", "war criminal", "world's biggest terrorist."

Maybe Thursday's near miss will wake some people up.

And just what did your conservative controlled Supreme Court rule on the matter?

Go on, illuminate us.

Heavily pregnant women aren't allowed to fly so she couldn't have been a potential suicide bomber. It seems that she was arrested because she is the wife of one of the conspirators. As such, I don't particularly care if she's pregnant or not.

um, no, my opinions haven't changed.

tell me, did the investigation use evidence gained from Gitmo detainees or from "coercive interrogation techniques" such as waterboarding?

Bush is bad. he is a liar. he is a war criminal. he has presided over the biggest military fiasco since Vietnam that has made us less safe.

To the fact that the diversion of resources in Afganistan to a senseless war in Iraq in which we have murdered thousands of innocent Arab civilians and helped spark a civil war has done nothing but create more anti-American sentiment and fosters even more terrorism? One can only hope.

Obviously I disagree with much of their ruling. If Bush overstepped his presidential war powers pertaining to the issue of military tribunals than I hope he seeks full congressional approval. As far as violating the Geneva conventions, I think that's a gross misreading and I hope it can be revisited.

1.) you arent allowed to carry ANYTHING on the plane

2.) all luggage is checked

3.) when you get on and after they close the door, but before the plane takes off, they pump the gas that puts you to sleep like when you go into surgery. So everyone except the pilots sleep through the whole fight. Then when the plane is ready to land, the gas flow stops and people wake up on the ground.

i guess it would also help people that are afraid to fly.

Kinda crazy, but i think it'd work.
Every one to be be naked or in white transparent plastic dress

maybe i'm missing something here, but wasn't this intelligence work done in the UK & Pakistan, by MI5, Scotland Yard & Pakistan intelligence? and weren't the arrests in the UK and Pakistan?

Where does the United States intelligence and/or Bush admin enter this? either for credit or blame?


like i said, maybe i missed something, but...
