Al Qaeda Planned 9/11 Attacks Outside U.S.

The London Times reports (via Captain's Quarters):

AN INDIAN man was jailed in Bombay yesterday for plotting to fly passenger jets into the House of Commons and Tower Bridge in London on September 11, 2001.

Mohammed Afroze was sentenced to seven years after he admitted that he had a role in an al-Qaeda plot to attack London, the Rialto Towers building in Melbourne and the Indian Parliament."AN INDIAN man was jailed in Bombay yesterday for plotting to fly passenger jets into the House of Commons and Tower Bridge in London on September 11, 2001.


Thankfully, the planned 9/11 attacks outside the U.S. were aborted.

Note that the targets were in Great Britain, Australia, and India. Note that the attacks were to take place before the invasion of Iraq. Note that you have heard next to nothing about this in the mainstream media (MSM).

The story is important to help us understand our enemy in the War on Terror and their motivation. The aims of Al Qaeda and similar Islamic terrorist organizations on 9/11/2001 included attacks on Australia (because it helped rid East Timor of Islamic terrorists), India (because it claimed Kashmir, which Muslims also claim), and Great Britain (because it worked with the U.S. to enforce the no-fly zones in Iraq), and the U.S. Al Qaeda's aims with regard to these countries have not been altered or expanded because of the invasion of Iraq. Had we not invaded Iraq, Al Qaeda would still have these aims.

Why doesn't the MSM prominently report this important story?
