LA recently foiled terrorists by reading their emails. Now Australia reports that they have also been able to arrest a group of terrorists before they could act.
Kathy Marks reports in the Independent that hundreds of Australian police have staged raids that netted them a group of arrests of men who they believe were planning to commit a "catastrophic act of terrorism." They found chemicals similar to the ones used in the London Underground (subway) bombings in July. The arrested the alleged leader of the terrorist group, Abdul Nacer Benbrika, a radical Muslim cleric living in Melbourne who was born in Algeria.
Ever since 911, the Australian government has been warning its citizens that the country is a potential terrorist target. It denies that its sending troops to the war in Iraq has increased this possibility. Being so isolated from the rest of the world can make Australians complacent, as if the events going on in other countries will not touch them in any way.
