When stories are breaking fast, the guy you want to go to is Allah. I learned that during Rathergate. He takes a huge mass of information and brings together the important stuff in readable chunks, with links and smart commentary. The guy is absolutely indispensable, and it’s days like this that demonstrate why.
Here is his latest on the terror plot.
UPDATE: Here is even more.
UPDATE x2: The names of three of the ringleaders: Rashid Rauf, Mohammed al-Ghandra, and Ahmed al Khan. (And here I figured it would be Joe, Bob, and Ted.) They are all of Pakistani descent. There are five still at large.
UPDATE x3: Good thing the New York Times didn’t find out about the plot before the arrests were made. They might have called the terrorists for their comments.
UPDATE x4: More names:
