Uh oh ... it's possible that the "101st Pants-Wetting Brigade" might have soiled themselves for nothing (all emphasis added):
NBC News has learned that U.S. and British authorities had a significant disagreement over when to move in on the suspects in the alleged plot to bring down trans-Atlantic airliners bound for the United States.
A senior British official knowledgeable about the case said British police were planning to continue to run surveillance for at least another week to try to obtain more evidence, while American officials pressured them to arrest the suspects sooner.
Because, when it comes to dealing with terrorism, the proper strategy is to rush in prematurely and perhaps jeopardize the entire investigation. But an attack was imminent, right? Right?
In contrast to previous reports, the official suggested an attack was not imminent, saying the suspects had not yet purchased any airline tickets. In fact, some did not even have passports.
