Hippocratic oafs

Tie me terrorist down, sport.

BRISBANE, Australia - The eighth suspect in connection with a suspected al-Qaida plot to detonate car bombs in London and Scotland was detained in the Australian city of Brisbane, officials said Tuesday.
British police have confirmed an eighth man has been detained overseas, but have declined to say where.
The 27-year-old man was arrested at Brisbane airport, Queensland Premier Peter Beattie said. A spokesman for Attorney General Philip Ruddock said the man had been detained but not arrested.
Also Monday, five doctors working at British hospitals were identified among the eight held in the failed car bomb attacks, NBC News has learned. Three of the five are fully certified doctors while two are trainers, officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, told NBC News.
Officers used heightened stop-and-search powers and armed response vehicles to hunt for anyone else who might have been involved in the plot, and police put on a show of force to bolster security at airports and train stations and on city streets.
Hours after Scottish police announced the arrests of two more suspects in the Glasgow area, officials said Monday night that a man had been detained at an “undisclosed location.” They declined to comment on a British Broadcasting Corp. report, citing unidentified sources, that the suspect was detained in another country it did not specify.
According to reports obtained by ITN, one of the suspects arrested in connection with the Glasgow attacks was the driver of one of the cars found in London tied to the foiled bombings.
A British security official said earlier in the day that Pakistan and several other nations were asked to check possible links with the suspects. British-born terrorists behind the bloody 2005 London transit bombings and others in thwarted plots here were linked to terror training camps and foreign radicals in Pakistan.
“We have asked partners overseas to check possible links and that work has begun,” the security official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the case.
Authorities said police searched at least 19 locations as part of the “fast-moving investigation,” which has come at a time of already high vigilance before the anniversary of the suicide bombings in London that killed 52 people on July 7, 2005.
'Continued cooperation'
Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who has said the group behind the weekend attacks was “associated with al-Qaida,” got a call from President Bush commending him for Britain’s response.

“President Bush concluded by reiterating that the United States is prepared to offer any assistance desired, and noted the importance of continued cooperation,” said Gordon Johndroe, spokesman for the White House’s National Security Council.
Two U.S. counterterrorism officials, who agreed to discuss the case only if not quoted by name, said the attackers in Britain were Islamic extremists sympathetic to al-Qaida, but investigators were still trying to figure out whether there were any direct links.
One of the officials also said there continued to be concerns about possible plots to attack the United States, including the potential for a large-scale assault by al-Qaida. Among the factors contributing to the worry are al-Qaida’s efforts to recruit in Pakistan’s tribal areas and its increased flow of public messages, the official said.
In the latest attacks, two car bombs failed to explode in central London on Friday and two men rammed a Jeep Cherokee loaded with gas cylinders into the entrance of Glasgow International Airport and then set it on fire Saturday.
The British government security official said investigators were working on one theory that the same people may have driven the explosives-laden cars into London and the blazing SUV in Glasgow.
Suspect hospitalized
The unidentified driver of the Jeep was being treated for serious burns at Royal Alexandra Hospital in Glasgow, where he was under arrest by armed police. Bomb experts carried out a second controlled explosion on a car at the hospital Monday, after a similar blast Sunday. Police said the car was linked to the investigation, but no explosives had been found.
Police announced Monday that they arrested two men the previous day at residences at the hospital, but would not say whether they were doctors. Four men and a woman had been detained earlier.
Authorities identified Bilal Abdulla, an Iraqi doctor who worked at the Glasgow hospital, as the other man arrested at the airport and said he was being held at a high-security police station in Glasgow.

According to the British General Medical Council’s register, a man named Bilal Talal Abdul Samad Abdulla was registered in 2004 and trained in Baghdad. Staff at the Glasgow hospital said Abdulla was a diabetes specialist.
A man arrested late Saturday on a highway in central England was also a physician, Mohammed Jamil Abdelqader Asha, police said. A Jordanian official said Asha was of Palestinian descent and carried a Jordanian passport.

'Young, angry'
“This case could be the final proof that an idea those involved in these type of attacks are all young, angry and poorly educated is a mistake,” said Paul Cornish, a former British army officer and director of defense studies at London’s Chatham House think tank.
“It’s wrong to suggest al-Qaida are ignorant hill men. They are often middle or upper class and well educated,” Cornish said.
Former U.S intelligence officer Bob Ayers, now a security analyst based in London, said wealth or intelligence matters little to people committed to extremism.
“We shouldn’t be surprised that educated men are as involved as poor youngsters,” he said. “They all subscribe to the same radical ideology, that’s the only criteria they need to fill.”
Salil Vengalil, a doctor at North Staffordshire Hospital, near the Midlands town of Newcastle-under-Lyme, said Asha worked in the neurology department at that hospital.
A doctor at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Glasgow, who refused to give his name, said he recognized Asha as a doctor who also kept an office there. The hospital would not confirm that.
'A moderate Muslim'
In Amman, Jordan, Asha’s father, Jamil, denied his 26-year-old son had any terrorist leanings.
“My son is a moderate Muslim and carried out his religious duties, but he never embraced fanaticism,” he told The Associated Press.
Information also surfaced Monday suggesting authorities had been close on the trail of the alleged plotters before the attack at the Glasgow airport.
Rental agent Daniel Gardiner, whose company leased a Glasgow-area house searched by police, said officers contacted his firm just before the airport blaze to say they had tracked phone records linked to the property.
Officials recovered at least one cell phone from the car bombs in London, Rep. Peter King of New York, the senior Republican on the U.S. House Homeland Security Committee, said Friday after being briefed about the London situation.
As the investigation spread, police flooded London’s subway and train stations, even clamping down on access to the Wimbledon tennis tournament, where concrete blocks were set in front of the main entrance.
In a statement to the House of Commons, Home Secretary Jacqui Smith urged Britons to remain united.
“Let us be clear: terrorists are criminals, whose victims come from all walks of life, communities and religious backgrounds,” she said. “Terrorists attack the values that are shared by all law-abiding citizens. It is through our unity that the terrorists will eventually be defeated.”

NBC News' Aaron Roston, ITV, Reuters and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Roger that.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thats what I intend to reverse.

I've never experienced an "emptier" beer. As a kid I had such high hopes for the lofty Fos-tahs Lag-ah. It tastes like the can.

Furthermore, I don't want to "see" any man, but I do like Wallabe's but with just a tinkling of Galliano.
