AP Forgets One Thing Britain's Bombers Had In Common
The AP's David Rising discusses the diverse backgrounds of the British bombers:
The eight people held Tuesday in the failed car bombing plot include one doctor from Iraq and two from India. There is a physician from Lebanon and a Jordanian doctor and his medical assistant wife. Another doctor and a medical student are thought to be from the Middle East.
Gee, what else might they have had in common? Anyone? Don't want to spoil the suspense, but we find out in paragraph 8, sort of. By implication:
British-born Muslims behind the bloody 2005 London transit bombings and others in thwarted plots here have been linked to terror training camps and foreign radicals in Pakistan, and the official said Pakistan, India and several other nations were asked to check possible links with the suspects in the latest attacks.
When will they ever feel comfortable naming the enemy?
