This is coolbert:
ONLY last night the British counter-terrorism expert was speaking of this and the reason why.
"Does the government expect another al-Qaeda attack?"
"The administration appears to be significantly worried about another attack from al-Qaeda that would target passenger planes flying to the US from overseas."
"France has become the latest country to increase airport security in line with a request from Washington to enhance screening for flights to the US."
Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula [Yemen] planning a new and more sophisticated bombing campaign directed at international and American domestic air liners.
ALL THIS IN RESPONSE TO THE VERY SUDDEN AND UNEXPECTED FORWARD ADVANCE OF ISIL IN IRAQ!
Al Qaeda has not HAD A TERRORISM SUCCESS IN ALMOST NINE YEARS NOW. [the 7/7 bombing of the buses in London]
Al Qaeda no longer sees itself in the vanguard of international jihad. ISIL is now predominant.
AND THIS SHOULD BE OBVIOUS TO ALL, EVEN THE MOST CASUAL OF OBSERVERS!
