Letting 'Em Off The Leash

I haven't paying real real close attention, so this half-assed analysis is probably holey-er than Swiss cheese, but here's what I've seen:

  1. Islamofascists bomb London.
  2. Several low-level arrests quickly made.
  3. Terrorists try again, much more feebly.
  4. Many more arrests, including a large op going on even as I write this.

What I think happened:

The authorities had many suspects under surveillance prior to 7/7, but couldn't move on them due to PC/multi-culti/sensitivity/other pussified restrictions. After 7/7, quick policy change to "It's awwwwwwwn!"; broad terrorist hunting licenses issued. Many low-level guys (and I think a couple of mid-levelers) pulled in. Terrorists panic, move up timetable for follow-up attacks. Lots of loose shit ensues; attacks fizzle. Second wave of arrests, probably driven by info gotten from the first wave of arrestees (and I'm guessing that there were interrogation methods in use that Amnesty International would have frowned upon).

I would love for this story to end with Abu Hook-za hanged naked from a rope coated in bacon grease, left swinging (alone) for three days, and buried, unwashed, face down with his feet pointing towards Mecca.
