    Check this out:


    Look at the building pictured in the story. Can't you just envision the horror all over again? :eek:

    Nevertheless...way to go, Brits! Glad you were able to avert the tragedy we suffered.

    That's One Canada Sqaure in Canary Wharf, I'm sitting at my desk on the 41st floor now :eek:

    ...side note, our Olympic bid team are on the 50th (the top floor).


    edit: btw, that pic is well out of date, there are now 3 big targets, and a lot of slightly smaller ones.

    That's amazing to me when you find something on a laptop in Pakistan and you can make an arrest 10,000 miles away. That's the way you fight the war on terror - not driving unarmored humvees in Iraq waiting for the next car bomb to get you.

    It was great - until the White House blew his cover and screwed the whole operation. Good Job, guys!

    I thought that invading Iraq was going to stop all of this stuff.

    Good job to the Brits though, and MI5? (right :confused: )

    MI6 probably, they are international, MI5 is national (I think it's that way round!).

    edit: maybe not, article mentions MI5.

    Criminal investigation. MI5 is Military Intelligence.

    Scotland Yard/MI5 = FBI

    MI6 = CIA

    Except the MI6 hasn't been crippled yet. Got it.
