MI5 on UK Muslim terrorists

If the UK has this many plots in progress I wonder how many are active in the U.S.

Muslim extremists are plotting at least 30 major terrorist attacks in Britain and the threats may involve chemical and nuclear devices, the head of Britain’s domestic spy agency said.

Eliza Manningham-Buller, head of intelligence agency MI5, said young British Muslims were being groomed to become suicide bombers and her agents were tracking some 1,600 suspects, most of whom were British-born and linked to al Qaeda in Pakistan.

“We are aware of numerous plots to kill people and damage our economy. What do I mean by numerous? Five? Ten? No, nearer 30 … that we know of,” Manningham-Buller said in a speech to a specially invited audience in London on Thursday evening.

I wonder what the Democrats response to a chemical or nuclear attack in the U.S. or the even the U.K. will be. If they suggest negotiation their celebration of power will be short lived.

    They’ll blame Bush, of course.
