Three “British” Muslims convicted of airline liquid bomb threat, but did American intervention jeopardise a further seven convictions?

Countless millions of people treated like dogs by airline security. Endless delays as line after line of guilty until proven innocent passengers file past a man with a clipboard and a dustbin full of deadly orange juice. Distraught mothers pleading to be allowed to take their own breast milk onto an eleven hour flight.

But the Muslim fundamentalists who British security services say were responsible for the no liquids through security check point fiasco, brought into force around the world after the plot was discovered, walked away from Woolwich Crown Court tonight, innocent of the more serious charges against them, because pressure from the Americans to make arrests, before a sufficient case against the accused had been built, may have contributed to the deadlocked jury and their failure to find a link between the accused and a plot which specifically targeted passenger jets.

As the BBC news report (linked below) shows, despite recovering evidence of a materials for a bomb making factory and the discovery of jihadist suicide videos, made by the men, pressure from the American security services may have jeopardised the conviction of another seven involved in the plot, one of whom, Assad Sarwar, was said in court to be the the ring leader of the Al-Qa’eda linked group.
