Here's to hoping that these @ssholes are the last of their kind... but I'm not holding my breath. Good thing there's no more "terror" out there.

British terrorists convicted
Monday, September 07, 2009 | 10:38 AM
LONDON -- Three British Muslims were convicted Monday of conspiring to kill thousands of civilians by blowing up trans-Atlantic flights in mid-air with liquid explosives disguised as soft drinks. A jury at a London courthouse found Abdulla Ahmed Ali, 28, Assad Sarwar, 29, and Tanvir Hussain, 28, guilty of conspiracy to murder by detonating explosives on aircraft. The trial started in February.
The jury found that they were the ringleaders of a conspiracy to carry out the biggest terrorist attack since 9/11. Four other alleged conspirators -- whom the prosecution said were to have carried the bombs onto the planes -- were acquitted of conspiring to blow up planes. The jury could not reach a verdict on an eighth man.
The men's arrests in August 2006 led to huge travel chaos, as hundreds of flights were grounded and thousands of people had their trips disrupted. They also triggered changes to airport security -- including restrictions on carrying liquids on planes -- that persist to this day. Prosecutor Peter Wright said the men planned to smuggle the bomb ingredients aboard jets bound from Britain to North America disguised as "soft-drinks bottles, batteries and other innocuous items" carried in hand luggage. "They were to be detonated in-flight by suicide bombers," including several of the accused, he said.
Wright said the plot would have caused "a civilian death toll from terrorism on an almost unprecedented scale."
The defendants had all denied the charge, claiming they planned a stunt to make a political point.

Yep-

"Terrorism" is no longer a term this administration uses. These jackasses are not "terrorists" to Obama and his commie pals. They don't cause "terrorist acts" anymore, they just play part in a little "man-caused disaster" every once in a while.

It sure will be great to see what the next election has in store for this administration. Conservatives could run a lemur against him and still win in a landslide!

Hopefully they won't be in a Scottish jail...

Nah, living in Scotland is bad enough. "Trainspotting" set a great example what to expect up North. New figures set the average life expectancy for males under 60!

Let's wait & see how many years those pr!cks get....
