Hyped Terror Raid
Proves To Be Paper Tiger
Friday's terror raid in London which has been hyped by sections of the media all weekend has evaporated into another paper tiger, just as another alleged fearsome plot to attack the Canadian Parliament is discredited by lack of evidence.
On Friday morning London police, supposedly acting on 'intelligence' and not evidence of a chemical weapons plot, raided a family home in the Forest Gate area, beating down doors and breaking windows as one of the suspects, Mohammed Abdul Kahar was shot in the shoulder.
Over the weekend police incredulously attempted to absolve themselves of blame by claiming that Kahar was shot by his own brother and not one of an alarmingly overzealous 250 police officers who descended on the scene. The police's version of events was adamantly denied by lawyers representing Kahar and his brother Abul Koyair.
The London Guardian reports today, "Counter-terrorism officials conceded yesterday that lethal chemical devices they feared had been stored at an east London house raided on Friday may never have existed."
Whoops. But look beneath the embarrassing intelligence foul-up angle and we see another shining success for the police state, with one senior police source unapologetic in proclaiming that despite this farce coupled with the brutal unprovoked murder of Charles de Menezes last year, "The public may have to get used to this sort of incident."
The specter of impromptu armed dawn raids based on the testimony of shadowy neighborhood informants wouldn't look out of place in Communist East Germany but we are told it is the new Britain of New Labour and that we should shut up and accept it. Britons will continue to remain passive until the color of those being targeted changes, which it invariably will after the mass panic of another false flag terror attack.
The Register today carries an excellent analysis debunking the often cited threat of a biological and chemical weapons attack in the UK and the supposed ease in which it could be accomplished according to police and the government. The argument is illustrated by a comparison with Aum Shinrikyo's 1995 Tokyo subway sarin attack. According to the London Telegraph's Sunday edition the incident, "sent out an alarming message about how easy it was to plot and carry out a chemical attack."
If you clarify a $30 million budget, a team of trained scientists, top class equipment, at least one factory and years of testing as 'easy' then you might also equate climbing Everest with a walk in the park.
The article also points out that in the only documented major biological attack in the last ten years, the anthrax attacks of 2001, the source of the anthrax was not Al-Qaeda operated terror laboratories but in fact the US government's own bio-defence program. Therefore the bigger worry should not revolve around the miniscule chance of small terror cells acquiring limited use chemical or biological weapons, but the question of how weapons grade anthrax was smuggled out of Ft. Detrick and handed to terrorists who were apparently doing the bidding of the US government.
Meanwhile in Canada, an alleged plot to bomb Toronto area buildings that led to the arrest of 17 Muslim men is already being described as "vague" in some quarters. As Kurt Nimmo discusses, the story coincides with the Canadian Security Intelligence Service's (CSIS) Senate demand for more funding to fight terrorism. It is hardly beyond the pale to suggest that this is another imaginary nightmare dreamt up in order to scare Canadian politicians into rubber stamping a giant cash cow.
Little doubt that just like the London plot, any actual substance behind the story will melt away over the next couple of days.
