If I was one of those wiley, conspiracy theorists, I would be looking at the “foiling-the-big-bad-terrorists” story with crossed eyes and a furrowed brow. Is it simply convenience or coincidence that this story broke, right when things were nice and calm, and people were starting to not be afraid? Was there some ingenious government ploy to play up the terrorist card, get people riled up, and put another big spotlight on all the “good work” that the counter-terrorists groups are doing for our behalf?

What if there was no ploy, what if it was a carefully contrived set up, to get us going again? Who bets that some interesting announcement will be made in the coming days, following on the heels of this thwarded terrorist attempt? Perhaps it’s a government security bill waiting in the wings for more financing? Or there is a need to add more military presence somewhere? What if the terrorist plot was indeed a plot, but one perpetrated by the US/Brits?

Hmm… imagine.

It appears I’m not the only one wondering aloud about the same things…

Dear Kitty is also thinking along the same lines along with the London daily News Line
