"English Brothers" Poised For Holiday Bombings
So say the Brits.
British intelligence and law enforcement officials have passed on a grim assessment to their U.S. counterparts, "It will be a miracle if there isn't a terror attack over the holidays in London," a senior American law enforcement official tells ABCNews.com.
British police have been quietly carrying out a series of key arrests as they continue to track at least six active "plots" tied to what they call "al Qaeda of England."
A report by "Newsweek" says that American al Qaeda figure Adam Gadahn has served as a translator of a 12-member team of Western recruits, the "English brothers," said to be preparing an attack that would be much bigger than last year's attack on the London subway system.
According to Newsweek, the gang (a dozen 20-somethings, primarily Brits, plus a couple Norwegians and one Australian) is just wrapping up a year-long training course in the tribal Waziristan area of Pakistan designed to ready them for their special missions back home.
