Great Britain’s Homeland Security Secretary On Edge

Great Britain’s Homeland Security Secretary Theresa May has some frightful numbers, and a conclusion from them that’s likely pertinent to the U.S. as well. “When the security and intelligence agencies tell us that the threat we face is now more dangerous than at any time before or since 9/11 we should take notice,” Secretary May said recently, as reported on In Homeland Security.

“May reported,” the post advises, “that since April 2010, some 753 people were arrested (in Britain) for terror-related offenses and – of those individuals – 148 were subsequently convicted. Earlier this year, Britain’s terror threat level increased from “substantial” to “severe” in light of deadly conflicts in Syria and Iraq.”
