UK terror plot another political stunt?

Andrew Sullivan puts 2 and 2 together, and comes up with a sum that looks an awful lot like another arrests-as-political-stunt situation like we saw in Florida, this time from the British (though still at the behest of the Bush team):
So far, no one has been charged in the alleged terror plot to blow up several airplanes across the Atlantic. No evidence has been produced supporting the contention that such a plot was indeed imminent. Forgive me if my skepticism just ratcheted up a little notch.

Josh isn't ready to concede that the plot was more Seas of David tripe, though he admits it's "less than met the eye."

Certainly as of yet there's nothing to indicate that FULL PANIC MODE AT THE AIRPORTS and cable news' return to 24 hour OH MY GOD THEY'RE GOING TO BOMB THE SHOPPING MALLS mode had any justification whatsoever.

The only evidence produced on these guys? One guys testimony, obtained under torture in Pakistan.

Had enough?
