Leaked Memo: Government Considering Deploying Special Forces Troops On The Streets With Police

The British government is considering plans to deploy crack trained SAS commandos onto the streets to work alongside police in “counter-terrorism surveillance teams”, according to a leaked memo unveiled by the Times Of London today.

The justification given in the memo is to counter “Al Qaeda’s International Operations wing”, which security officials believe is adamant on carrying out a Mumbai style terror attack to inflict mass casualties on the streets of London.

The restricted Whitehall document notes that under the plans, the SAS could relocate to a base in central London in order to cut down response time.

The document states that terrorists are seeking to use suicide or car bombs or the use of “firearms against aircraft and airport targets”.

It is claimed that the Royal Wedding in May and the 2012 Olympics are high profile events that could be targeted by terrorists, and that the incident involving the student protest “attack” on the car of Prince Charles last year shows that extra security is required.

I wear many hats but history, economics and political observance have always been a passion. I am a graduate of the University of Cincinnati College of Business with a degree in Information Systems and Digital Business with a minor in European History. I work for a small mom-and-pop IT consulting and software design company. We deal in servicing mostly government funded non-profit mental and behavioral health care agencies in the state of Ohio. In this I deal with Medicaid and Medicare funds and have a little insight on the boondoggles of government there. Thankfully the undemanding nature of my daily profession gives me ample time to read and stay aware of our current state of affairs which I find stranger than fiction in many instances. In addition to being in the IT field, I have also been self employed with a small contracting company so I might know a thing or two about the plight of small business that employs 71% of the American workforce. I however don't draw my knowledge from my day jobs, which I have had a few; I draw it from an intense obsession with facts and observation about the world in which I live. I do have formal education in things such as history, economics and finance particularly as it pertains to global issues, but I have come to find much of what I thought I knew from the formalities of a state university I had to unlearn through much time and independent research. I hope you enjoy what I bring you which is not often heard in the mainstream news outlets. I would like to think my own personal editorializing is not only edifying but thought provoking while not at all obnoxious. That last one may be a hard to achieve.
