Brits Foil Sarin Gas Attack on Parliament

From the Sydney Morning Herald (Australia):
London police believe they foiled a potential al-Qaeda gas attack on British parliament, a newspaper reported.

The Sunday Times claimed the plot - to unleash deadly nerve gas sarin on Britain's House of Commons - was uncovered through coded emails on computers seized from terrorist suspects in Britain and Pakistan.

The paper claimed that an operation to deter the attack was referred to in an internal police document they had obtained.

Metropolitan Police refused to comment on the report. "We are not able to discuss this at this time," a police spokesman said.
Meanwhile, fools in this country try to pander to the electorate by saying that we should withdraw from the Middle East. Good idea, isolationism, but we need a catchy phrase for the media. Let's call it, oh, I don't know..."Fortress America". Oh wait, that didn't work out the first time, did it?
