Scotland Yard Conducting "Raids in Central London" in Connection with Attempted Terrorist Attack - Video 12/26/09

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Here is a video report from NBC News saying Scotland Yard is carrying out "raids in central London" this morning in connection with the attempted terrorist attack aboard Northwest Airlines Flight 253. The attacker reportedly went to school there, and British authorities are looking for evidence.

The report also discusses the attempted attack, and the way passengers acted to subdue the Nigerian attacker.

Let us hope they can build a case against the sand Nazis.

OK, if there is a Yemeni connection, that halfay makes sense... but is a Nigerian truly a "sand Nazi"? Doesn't the very shallowness of that comment exhibit one of the problems we have in dealing with terrorism?

BTW: where are all the rightwingers complaining about how the White House won't refer to "terrorism"? Seems to me that, if an incident is caused by terrorists, they refer to terrorism. If they're not sure, they don't. Seems pretty sensible to me.

No one is complaining because they called it what it is - terrorism. Complaints only came when a man who shouted "Allah Akhbar," and had made comments in favor of "Jihad" and terror bombings killed American soldiers at Fort Hood. That should have been called "terrorism" too.

Brian, you're tap-dancing all around the point. The criticism from the rightwingers had been that the Obama administration refused to ever use the term "terrorism" and the rightwingnuts went crazy, turning that into THE "issue" with the Ft. Hood shootings. This incident shows that -- not surprisingly -- this President is not avoiding the term "terrorism". He just doesn't sling it around indiscriminately like his predecessor did.

It just shows he may have learned from his previous mistake. That's a good thing.

But maybe the mistake was yours to begin with.

And that's not a good thing, because you apparently didn't learn from it.
