Breaking: Terrorist Plot Thwarted, UK To US Flights Targeted

**Update
--Heathrow closed to incoming flights
--Scotland Yard official tries to disconnect the link between "criminals" and the "communities" in which they masquerade. Trying to separate religionists from the religion, as this is the work of "extremists" and not just everyday members of the faithful. Riiiigggggghhhhhtttt!

Michelle Malkin is already on top of this story.
Hot Air has continuing reports.
Pajamas Media has more.

BBC:
A terrorist plot to blow up planes in mid-flight from the UK to the US has been disrupted, Scotland Yard has said.

It is thought the plan was to detonate explosive devices smuggled on aircraft in hand luggage.

Police have arrested about 18 people in the London area after an anti-terrorist operation lasting several months.

Security at all airports in the UK has been tightened and delays are reported. MI5 has raised the UK threat level to critical - the highest possible.

According to MI5's website, critical threat level means "an attack is expected imminently and indicates an extremely high level of threat to the UK".
The Independent

Sky News:
"mainly young, British-born Asian men"
Wanna take a guess what religion? At this point, this is the only description of the suspected terrorists. Sky News is reporting on television that they are of Pakistani descent.

How long before some Kostard or DUmmy accuses Bush-Blair of making up the plot in order to divert attention from Iraq, Israel-Lebanon, or as a way for Republicans to retain power in November's elections? Or some other absurd conspiracy theory?

Due mostly to the hyperlink that links your blogsite and HEAR, O ISREAEL, this comment is being left here. Anyway, here's the text:

". . . Wood'ja (?) buh-leave! . . .

I almost feel sorry for the fools, bent on destroying Israel. If only they knew what they're going up against. In the post titled ". . . more 'italian' than you realize . . .", I expound on the chief reason for that emotional "near miss".

Anyway, the text for the hyperlink to that post is just below . . .
