I've Been Thinking:
Some people still need more convincing that al Qaeda was behind the terror plot to hijack and blow up 10 planes departing from London.
I have no doubts about it.
The plot was taken directly out of the al Qaeda playbook.
Here is how I know:
In the mid 1990's al Qaeda attempted to put this same plan into action.
Peroxide based liquid bomb explosives have become an al Qaeda signature, they were used in the successful bombing of the London underground and in the attempted London plot and in other al Qaeda operations.
Operatives had no idea of who their colleagues-in-terror were which is an al Qaeda method of operation.
Simultaneous plane bombings is exactly the al Qaeda style.
This was a highly planned and grandiose style of attack, a la al Qaeda.
Al Qaeda goes for the big numbers, and this operation would have resulted in the deaths of about 3,000 innocent people.
This attack was scheduled to fall between two important al Qaeda anniversaries, 7-7 and 9-11.
Large sums of monies and extensive training went into this plan, a sophistication only al Qaeda has.
Co-ordination of this attack came out of Pakistan and a known al Qaeda leader, Rashid Rauf, was involved.
It was an al Qaeda operation.
