But of course these terror plots are newsworthy and all have endless headlines and new coverage, untill they fact that there was no real plot -- this news is buried in small articles.
What happens when a seemingly genuine terror cell is found?
It is reported in the local media:
Chemicals Find: Two In Court http://www.pendletoday.co.uk/ViewArticle2.aspx?SectionID=8&ArticleID=1806619
Ex-BNP man held in 'bomb' swoop http://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/news/pendlenews/pendleheadlines/display.var.947927.0.exbnp_man_held_in_bomb_swoop.php
And these reports have quotes from the police:
Superintendent Neil Smith moved to reassure residents and stressed: "It is not a bomb making factory" and added that it was not related to terrorism.
"He's not a terrorist and it's not a bomb factory ..."
"He was arrested under the Explosives Act on suspicion of possessing chemical substances that aren't in themselves an offence to possess but if combined may be capable of making an explosion."
So possessing "the largest amount of chemical explosive of its type ever found in the country" *doesn't* consitute a bomb factory?
This is insane.
These are the only media reports that could be found via Google News about this:
