Intelligence thwarts terrorist attack through e-mail monitoring.

Three cheers for the intelligence folks.  The Daily Mail.

The three suspects, two German converts to Islam and a Turk who had undergone military training at Taliban camps in Pakistan, were caught with 750kg of hydrogen peroxide, a chemical easily transformed into explosives.

We have stopped what would certainly have been the worst terror attacks in Germany,” he added.

The men had been under surveillance for months from agents of the BND, Germany’ s MI5, and the elite GSG-9 police commandos who are trained along SAS-lines.

American intelligence officials were also in on the surveillance but played no part in the arrests.

Email traffic between them and others abroad led to the authorities’ action five days before the anniversary of 9/11.

And then there are the people who wish to tie the hands of our intelligence agencies citing “privacy rights.”   Your privacy rights are not respected by terrorists.  Your right “to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” are not respected by that insane radical Islamic group intent on “converting” the world, most specifically the western historical Judeo-Christian world, to some crazy idea of sharia law through a militant jihad. 

 

I could very easily get mentally “terrorized” thinking that these civil rights groups like CAIR and the ACLU could actually persuade our wimpy politically correct politicians to write laws forbidding our agencies from any kind of behind the scenes intelligence “spying.”
