UK terrorist trial

If you've been irritated by the restrictions on carrying drinks through airport security, this may be the reason. Click here to see the whole CNN article (thanks to Jihad Watch). An excerpt: "Islam and seven others are charged with plotting to detonate bombs aboard airliners bound from London to the United States and Canada using explosives concealed in soft drink bottles. Prosecutors say they were close to carrying out their plan when they were arrested in August 2006. The men deny the charges.

And here's the suicide video made by Umar Islam, 29, one of the accused.

On one level, it's pathetic: he's clearly reading from a written text, and poorly at that. On the other hand, it doesn't take much brilliance to blow up a lot of people.
