A Big Thank You

A giant thank you to British authorities and America’s NSA for thwarting today’s terrorist plot. They all deserve a huge parade.

UPDATE: Britain Names 19Terror Suspects

UPDATE: 5 Pakistanis also arrested in plot to blow up planes

Terrorists were planning a dry run to use liquids to blow up multiple airplanes taking off in Britain, headed to the U.S.

President Bush addressed the nation before a speech in Wisconsin. Hot Air has the video.

President Bush this morning said the terror plot uncovered in Britain is a “a stark reminder that this nation is at war with Islamic fascists who will use any means to destroy those of us who love freedom, to hurt our nation.”

Bush thanked British officials for breaking up the plot and also praised American agencies for their cooperation in the case.

“This country is safer than it was prior to 9-11,” Bush said. “We have taken a lot of measures to protect the American people. But obviously we’re not completely safe, because there are people who still plot. It is a mistake to believe there is no threat to the United States of America.”

Bush also asked travelers to be patient with the inconveniences caused by the response to the terror threat.

“The American people need to know we’re living in a dangerous world, but our government will do everything it can to protect the people from that danger,” Bush said while standing on the tarmac of Austin Straubel International Airport.

Michelle Malkin has some interesting polls on Muslims from all over the world.

Hot Air followed the breaking news throughout last night and all day.

Michelle Malkin also notes it’s interesting that the word Muslim does not come up in describing the terrorists.

LaShawn Barber quips, “No, Mr. Bush. It’s Islamofascists, not Islamic fascists.

From TSA: “All travelers on commercial U.S. carriers… NO LIQUIDS OR GELS OF ANY KIND WILL BE PERMITTED IN CARRY ON BAGGAGE. ITEMS MUST BE IN CHECKED BAGGAGE. This includes all beverages, shampoo, sun tan lotion, creams, tooth paste, hair gel, and other items of similar consistency. Exception: Baby formula and medicines must be presented for inspection at the checkpoint.”

On the positive side, the stock market shrugged at today’s terror news.

According to Time, the US overheard the terrorists’ plans and shared it with the UK intelligence officials. Thank God for the NSA spying plan. Otherwise many people could have died in the coming days.
