1,600 Terrorists Planning Attacks; The MSM: Where's The Celebrity Angle!?


From today's Telegraph (UK; hat tip LionheartUK):

Secret Report: Terror Threat Worst Since 9/11


The terrorist threat facing Britain from home-grown al-Qaeda agents is higher than at any time since the September 11 attacks in 2001, secret intelligence documents reveal.

The number of British-based Islamic terrorists plotting suicide attacks against "soft" targets in this country is far greater than the Security Services had previously believed, the government paperwork discloses. It is thought the plotters could number more than 2,000.

Eliza Manningham-Buller, the director general of MI5, warned recently that there were more than 1,600 "identified individuals" actively engaged in plotting terrorist attacks. There were 200 known networks involved in at least 30 terrorist plots. It is thought that the number of British citizens involved in plots could be well in excess of 2,000...
Hm. This article and others indicate that most or all of these terror threats are from home-grown jihadists, including second- and third-generation Muslims in England, many from middle- to upper-class families.

I covered some of the unreported-on hard numbers at JQWorld,

And yet, what is the American mainstream media --- from CNN to Fox News to the Washington Post --- expending airtime and ink on, to the exclusion of even mentioning this story (thus far)?

You got it: The Oscars, Anna Nicole Smith's decaying body, Britney Spears' decaying psychological balance, the Libby trial, the Hillary-Obama spat, and other non-stories.
Little wonder why the jihadists are convinced that we can be conquered --- not through violence, but through the near-wholesale abdication by our mainstream media to accurately and promptly present the pivotal stories of the day, so they can present more nauseating non-stories that reflect only their obsession with celebrity-worship.
