8/10 is not 9/11

At least this time. As you've probably heard, British intelligence foiled a plot where terrorists were planning to board commercial airliners and blow them up in flight using liquid explosives. Two quick thoughts:

  • Hooray for the MI5; unlike the sieve-like CIA, they don't leak their methods to the press; they simply find the bad guys and catch them.
  • Memo to those who aren't currently intersted in the threat of terrorism - you may not be interested in terrorists, but terrorists are clearly interested in you.
  • Ned Lamont typically doesn't have to worry about these things, of course, because he can use a private jet.

I'm glad that someone continues to take this stuff seriously.
