We'll just hop an a plane and blow it up.

The abc Blog "The Blotter " gives us a potted history, via no doubt the UK SIS mouthpieces of the allleged bomb plot ...

"In this case, the plotters apparently intended to assemble small but powerful bombs in flight and use them to take down flights from England to the United States in an operation that was just days away."

Which sounds plausible, if your reading is limited to Tom Clancy and your knowledge of chemistry restricted to distinguishing the difference between sweet and sour.

Lord Patel, a frequent transatlantic flier (Paris Hilton being Sooooooo demanding ) was much taken by this ....

"When the arrests were made Thursday morning, the plotters had reached the point of identifying airlines and routes, but had not yet picked flight numbers." ****

Perhaps the plotter(s) overlooked the fact that at the height of the summer season flights from Heathrow to the US are overbooked weeks ahead, and the possibility of carefully selecting which flight to use and booking multiple seats is somewhat fanciful.

Perhaps if a regional airport was used, there is more chance but such late booking would certainly not have worked at Manchester which the allegedly targetted airlines use daily for transatlantic flights.

**** Presumably using an ouija board.

ohn Prescott was asked what to do about these guys using the toilet to assemble bombs... easy , peasy, says the Sage of Hull, used as an ex cruise liner bar steward, to stroppy passengers - we just don't let them use the toilets.

ABC as quoted by Lord Patel...

"When the arrests were made Thursday morning, the plotters had reached the point of identifying airlines and routes, but had not yet picked flight numbers."

ABC have been alerted to that little illogicality and have removed it from their version of official story. I can't find those words anywhere on the linked page.

Seems certain people from your former colony were putting on the pressure for you folks to bust these yahoos earlier than you wanted to. In fact, they may have had a hand in the arrest of one of the plotters in Pakistan which caused your law enforcement agencies to move sooner than they intended. All so our vaunted leaders could spread the fear here right after Lieberman lost in the Connecticut primary. Couldn't have people thinking that they might actually be able to vote the cocksuckers out now, could they.

I read that your law enforcement folks had wanted to wait until they actually bought tickets for a dry run (as opposed to a wet run?) but as I said above, were forced to move early. So don't be too hard on them. Blair opened his mouth to the wrong people (read US) and that's what happens when you trust our current criminals in charge here in America. Sorry about that.

How very odd, you will find the phrase here

http://blogs.abcnews.com/theblotter/uk_airline_terror_plot/index.html

Which was another story - I found this by googling the whole phrase as I quoted it. It also appeared here
http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=364x1896248

with a far better and longer much more sourced story.

Good pick to notice it's removal.
