A terrorist plot foiled!

Well, OK, it wasn't in the US, but it was in the UK, which has been our most faithful ally in the GWOT. Still, a blow has been struck against the Islamo-Fascists, yes?

Um, not exactly:
SPECIAL Branch cops smashed a plot to kidnap little Leo Blair while monitoring a small band of fanatical dads, The Sun can reveal.

They stumbled across the startling plan as they investigated the activities of men on the lunatic fringe of the Fathers 4 Justice group.
As far as I can tell from the article, they didn't need to tear up their constitution (not that they could, not having one—but they also don't seem to have violated their laws) in order to foil this nefarious plot. These people would not have been identified by the racial profiling advocated by US wingnuts. It just took good solid police work, and any arrests and trials will happen in the criminal justice system, and not in offshore extrajudiciary prisons answerable only to Tony Blair.
