Unilateralism at Work

I am sure the Brits did all this by themselves and it had nothing to do with shared intelligence from captured al Queda in Afghanistan and Iraq:
Britain's security services thwarted a September 11-style attack on targets including Canary Wharf and Heathrow Airport, according to reports.

The plot is said to have involved pilots being trained to fly into target buildings including London's famous financial centre and the world's busiest airport.

It is one of four or five al-Qaeda planned attacks, since 9/11, that have come to nothing, after the authorities intervened, reports claim.

The disclosure comes as the Government prepares to unveil a series of tough law-and-order Bills in tomorrow's Queen's Speech, setting out the legislative programme for what is expected to be the final session of the current Parliament.
Read the rest here. I wonder how many other terrorist attacks were thwarted that because of intelligence and secrecy we will never know about until 50 years from now watching a documentary on some holographic television on the futuristic equivalent of the History Channel.
