Terrorist Attempt In Canada Foiled

And no much to the chargrin of the leftist MSM, it yet again wasn't the Tea Party. Surprisingly (to the left at least), the latest bomb plot was by those fellows whose religious affiliation begins with an I and ends with a SLAM.

From Hot Air via Instapundit:

Canadian police and intelligence agencies will announce later today they have thwarted a plot to carry out a major terrorist attack, arresting suspects in Ontario and Quebec, CBC News has learned.

Highly placed sources tell CBC News the alleged plotters have been under surveillance for more than a year in Quebec and southern Ontario.

The investigation was part of a cross-border operation involving Canadian law enforcement agencies, the FBI and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

The arrests Monday morning were co-ordinated and executed by a special joint task force of RCMP and CSIS anti-terrorism units, combined with provincial and municipal police forces in Ontario and Quebec.

Interestingly enough, Legal Insurrection notes that

Al-Qaeda elements “located in Iran.” No indication “state-supported.” Support was “direction and guidance.”

So much for the leftists' pet theory that Shia Iran would never work with Sunni Al Qaeda against the infidel enemy. That theory never held up before and certainly should be dead as a doornail by now.

So far, two arrests have been made.

Good job to the RCMP and other agencies that participated in interdicting this attack.

A hearty "Well Done!" to the RCMP.

And listening to some of the press conference, I got to hear some of the finest Quebec-ish I have ever heard spoken!

Definite thumbs up to the RCMP. And the media is going to turn itself inside out trying to deny that Al Queda alive and well and that radical Islam has been at the heart of all this.
