Another "Terror" Suspect Released, Without Charge
News Brief – August 17, 2006
Reuters reports that another “terror” suspect has been released without charge.
He is the second suspect held on suspicion of involvement in an alleged plot to blow-up flights bound to the US from Heathrow, to be released without charge.
The man was originally arrested on Tuesday.
Explaining the release, police said in a statement: "This is not unusual and is to be expected in large and complex criminal enquiries where a number of arrests have taken place."
If successful the attack, which is alleged to have targeted up to 10 trans-Atlantic flights, would have eclipsed 9/11.
Police are still holding a further 23 suspects.
Nonetheless, their continued detention has done nothing to dispel doubts about the official version of events.
According to one news industry insider, the plot was hatched with the covert assistance of intelligence double agents, who coaxed the young men involved into believing they were fighting for a just and noble cause.
Using the young men as unwitting dupes, no more than fall guys in a much bigger plan, the objective was to enhance the illusion of a terror threat from “radical Islam”.
With the ultimate aim of using the tensions created to propel the world toward a final “Clash of Civilisations”, involving a military showdown between Israel, the Muslim world and the nominally Christian west.
