Al Qaeda in Iraq Plans "Hiroshima Type" Attack…in Great Britain!!
** Just once… Wouldn’t it be nice if the media would ask Senator Reid how he plans on stopping massive Al Qaeda attacks on the West that are being drawn up in Iraq when US forces are brought back home?
As Harry Reid and democrats blast Bush for being in denial on Iraq and continue their push for withdrawal of US troops…
…Al Qaeda in Iraq makes plans for a Hiroshima-type attack not on Baghdad… On Great Britain!
The Daily Telgraph reports:
AL-QAEDA leaders in Iraq are planning the first “large-scale” terrorist attacks on Britain and other western targets with the help of supporters in Iran, according to a leaked intelligence report.
Spy chiefs warn that one operative had said he was planning an attack on “a par with Hiroshima and Nagasaki” in an attempt to “shake the Roman throne”, a reference to the West, according to The Times newspaper in the UK.
Another plot could be timed to coincide with Tony Blair stepping down as prime minister, an event described by Al-Qaeda planners as a “change in the head of the company”.
The report, produced earlier this month and seen by The Sunday Times, appears to provide evidence that Al-Qaeda is active in Iran and has ambitions far beyond the improvised attacks it has been waging against British and American soldiers in Iraq.
There is no evidence of a formal relationship between Al-Qaeda, a Sunni group, and the Shi’ite regime of President Mah-moud Ahmadinejad, but experts suggest that Iran’s leaders may be turning a blind eye to the terrorist organisation’s activities,” reports The Times.
The intelligence report also makes it clear that senior Al-Qaeda figures in the region have been in recent contact with operatives in Britain.
It makes you wonder who’s really in denial here?
