Federal Marshals were assigned to US Flights into and out of Glasgow and Prague ? Prior notice and no action taken to advise UK Security Services? ... now why would the US Security Services do that ? Iraqi / Jordanian Doctors ... exiles presumably from Iraq.
Homeland Security Chief Michael Chertoff was quoted in a CNN news report (text) saying
"We haven't singled out Glasgow [Scotland] until a couple of days ago as a particular location for focus, but there has been a strategy of mixing up the deployment of these air marshals, sometimes more in one destination, sometimes more in another destination," he said.
Something is definitely murky in the woodshed here that not even the Sphincter of the Yard is going to fathom ... Lockerbie Redux ?
CNN video report available here 13.00 BST - possibility that the 2 drivers of the Mercedes in London were also the 2 in the Glasgow Jeep .
UPDATE 4th July 2007
Remarkably the Gruaian has a report today - 4 days old.
Mark Oliver, James Sturcke and agencies..
"In other developments today, ABC News reported that US law enforcement
officials received intelligence reports two weeks ago warning of a possible
terror attack in Glasgow against "airport infrastructure or aircraft".
An unnamed senior official told the US broadcaster that the intelligence led to the
assignment of federal air marshals to flights into and out of Glasgow and Prague
in the Czech Republic."
