Not So Great Britain

UK Attacks a Model for U.S. Assault | July 6, 2007

U.S. intelligence and counterterrorism officials believe the attempted terrorist attacks last weekend in England are a preview of the next terrorist assault on the United States.According to the Washington Post, the unsophisticated, near-simultaneous attacks are designed more to provoke widespread fear and panic than to cause major losses of life, require little training, and are difficult to prevent.

CIA Director Michael Hayden told agency employees on Tuesday via an internal memo that “events in Great Britain since last Friday serve as a reminder — if we ever needed one — that this remains a dangerous world and that our work in defending America is as important as ever.”
