TERROR ENQUIRY LOOKS AT SUSPECT’S TIME IN BRITAIN

Odd article from the New York Times that seems to blame the UK for America’s failure to share intelligence….”That view, if confirmed, would offer a stark reaffirmation that Britain, the United States’ closest ally, poses a major threat to American security. Critics say the British security forces have failed to adequately monitor and restrain the Islamic militancy that thrives in the vast network of mosques that serve the nation’s 1.5 million Muslims, and on university campuses across the country where nearly 100,000 of the 500,000 students are Muslims, including many, like Mr. Abdulmutallab, from overseas.” Out of the woodwork come the Londonistan brigade. Yet hidden in the article is the admission that no-one can recognise a trigger point in radicalisation..a point at which a young Muslim moves from fundamentalist to fighter.

U.S. HAD EARLY SIGNALS OF A TERROR PLOT, OFFICIALS SAY

Same paper. Actually, the information was available but agencies failed to share it in a way that would have activated the red flags. Twas ever thus. Rest of article about the domestic politics of security in the US. Basically Obama has to blame everyone he can and then be seen to be doing something about it…which will mean more time standing in queues at airports. Oh and more pressure on the Uk to do something…anything!

SHOPLIFTERS? STUDIES SAY KEEP AN EYE ON WORKERS

Employees nick more than shoplifters by abusing the gift card system…and the Banks? and the executives? Weve been here before. Crime is what the lower classes do, neber the bosses. Id like to see a study which shows clearly who loses a company what each year, not a statement of “theft” defined in a particular way. “loss” not “theft”, dum-dum!
