The second senior law enforcement official for London's Metropolitan Police warned that law enforcement breaks-up would-be terror attacks yearly that would rival the bloody assaults on London that killed or wounded almost 850 innocent souls on July 7, 2005, as reported by The Telegraph (of London, England) on March 21, 2013.
As reported by The Telegraph, both the London Police Service working in tandem with government's nation-wide Security Service, commonly known as MI5, have consistently nixed planned terrorist attacks within Great Britain warning that the nation is facing the most complex terror threat in its history according to Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Stuart Osborne.
Despite Barack Obama and various members of his Administration assuring the world that the al-Qaeda terror network has either been "decimated," "on the path to defeat" or some other variation at least 32 times since the attack on the United States Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, British law enforcement is painting a much different picture.
Warning that al-Qaeda remains "the greatest terror threat to Britain," Osborne, who also doubles as Great Britain's Senior National Coordinator for Counter Terrorism, stated:
"On average we've probably had about one potential attack planned with an intent to create something similar to July 7 every year.
The UK threat as we stand today remains at substantial, which means that a terrorist attack remains a strong possibility and could occur without warning."
A Change In Direction...?
What could be cited at a different overall approach, the British law enforcement authorities could be adopting a new hard line attitude towards possible al-Qaeda inspired terrorists.
As noted by The Telegraph in a report during June of 2011, the fear of being branded a racist and Islamophobic by the Muslim community in Britain had affected the Metropolitan Police to a degree of almost epidemic proportions.
So severely that victims of Muslim-initiated hate crimes have charged that the local constabulary:
"Ignored or downplayed outbreaks of hate crime, and suppressed evidence implicating Muslims in them, because they fear being accused of racism."
