OCEAN-BOUND TERROR, AL-QAEDA CRUISELINE

The UK Mirror
reports that the likelihood of 15 ships on the high seas owned by Al-Qaeda is high.

... The report by the Met - which says it obtained its intelligence from maritime agencies - states: "Al-Qaeda has reportedly taken possession of 15 ships, forming what could be described as the first terrorist navy. The ships fly the flags of Yemen and Somalia where they are registered - and are capable of carrying lethal cargoes of chemicals or a dirty bomb."

Vessels flying the flags of Senegal, Liberia and the Caribbean island of St Vincent are also under suspicion.

The ships are believed to be in the Indian or Pacific oceans. But with 120,000 vessels worldwide, the chance of finding them is slim.

Armed police are already routinely patrolling the Thames to protect Parliament, MI6, and other possible targets. The Royal Navy, Special Forces and the Yard's anti-terrorism squad are looking for unusual" shipping movements near Britain's oilfields and oil refineries.

US intelligence experts believe an al-Qaeda ship carried explosives used to bomb two US embassies in Africa in 1998. The explosives used in the Bali nightclub were brought in by ship....


Another reason Osama was more important than Iraq, if we're talking safety of Americans - which our government was.

If we have a choice, one thing at a time Mr. ADD President, sir.
