Alarm­ni­vået i Stor­bri­tan­nia ble lør­dag kveld hevet til “kri­tisk”, som er det høy­este som fin­nes. Det betyr at myn­dig­he­tene anser at Stor­bri­tan­nia er under angrep, og at nye kan komme når som helst.

Det er homo-parade i Lon­don imor­gen.

Skotsk politi sa angre­pet på fly­plas­sen i Glas­gow er knyt­tet til de to bilene som ble fun­net i Lon­don, som ikke eks­plo­derte.

At angre­pet kom­mer etter at den nye regje­rin­gen har til­trådt er neppe til­fel­dig, mener sik­ker­hets­eks­per­ter. Hel­ler ikke at Glas­gow fly­plass ble angre­pet. De to bilene som ble fun­net i Lon­don kom­mer også fra Glas­gow, blir det sagt.

Angre­pet i Glas­gow var etter alt å dømme selv­mords­an­grep.

One eyewit­ness at yesterday’s attack in Glas­gow, Jackie Ken­nedy, 46, a beau­ti­cian from the city, descri­bed how she watched one of the occu­pants of the car douse him­self in petrol and set him­self alight.

He had a big smirk on his face. He lif­ted up what appea­red to be a five-litre drum, which I think had petrol in it, and set him­self on fire,” she said. “His clot­hes were mel­ting in front of my very eyes.

The police tried to pounce on him but he fought back and was strugg­ling with them. It was only when a mem­ber of the pub­lic pun­ched him in the face that the police mana­ged to restrain him. The police were try­ing to spray CS gas in his face but it was not wor­king. I can’t believe what I have just seen. I have no doubt this was a ter­ro­rist attack.” 

Man­nen som ble over­man­net ble ført til Pais­ley-syke­hu­set, men der utløste han alarm og eva­ku­e­ring, da det ble opp­da­get at han var rig­get som en selv­mords­bom­ber.

    Noen må ha visst om dette, men ikke for­talt noen.

    Akku­rat som “THE 9/11 COMMISSION” nev­ner om dagene før 11. sep­tem­ber, 2001 [om hem­me­lig­hold om al-Qai­das ‘pla­nes ope­ra­tion’]:

    Hazmi [fly­kap­rer, Ame­ri­can Air­li­nes Flight 77], how­ever, was not so discreet. He telep­ho­ned his for­mer San Diego com­pa­nion, Mohdar Abdul­lah [Jeme­nit­tisk stu­dent] in late August. Seve­ral bits of evi­dence indi­cate that others in Abdullah’s cir­cle may have rece­i­ved word that somet­hing big would soon hap­pen. As noted ear­lier, Abdullah’s beha­vior changed notice­ably. Prior to Sep­tem­ber 11, both he and Yazeed al Salmi [Saudier, bodde sam­men med fly­kap­rere i San Diego] sud­denly became intent on proce­e­ding with their plan­ned mar­riages. One wit­ness quo­tes Salmi as com­men­ting after the 9/11 attacks, “I knew they were going to do somet­hing, that is why I got mar­ried.” More­over, as of August 2001, Iyad Kreiwesh [dag­lig leder, ben­sin­sta­sjon] and other emp­loy­ees at the Texaco sta­tion where Hazmi had wor­ked sud­denly were anti­ci­pa­ting atten­tion from law enfor­ce­ment aut­hori­ties in the near future. Finally, early on the mor­ning of Sep­tem­ber 10, Abdul­lah, Osama Awa­dal­lah [Jeme­nitt, job­bet med Hamzi], Omar Bakar­bas­hat [Saudier, pri­vat engelsk­læ­rer for Hazmi], and others behaved sus­pi­ciously at the gas sta­tion. Accor­ding to the wit­ness, after the group met, Awa­dal­lah said “it is finally going to hap­pen” as the others cele­brated by giving each other high fives.

    Ingen­ting skjer helt i et vakuum. Noen vis­ste. Og lot være å si i fra.
