Terrorist pleads guilty

BBC News:
A man has pleaded guilty to conspiring to murder people in a series of bombings on British and US targets.

Dhiren Barot, of north London, planned to use a radioactive "dirty bomb" in one of a series of attacks in the UK, Woolwich Crown Court heard.

He intended to cause "injury, fear, terror and chaos", prosecutors said.

Barot, 34, also allegedly plotted to cause explosions at several US financial buildings "designed to kill as many innocent people as possible".
I wonder if Stop Political Terror and CagePrisoners will have anything to say.

How on earth did the name of this 'British' man slip through the PC fine-mesh net? I am curious, is this a Scottish or Welsh name? Ancient Cornish perhaps? Could it be.....? Nah!
Is it remotely possible that this 'British' man is of the (dare I say it?) Islamic confession? What an illiberal thought!

According to the papers this morning, he's a Hindu by birth, but a convert to Islam.

Isn't it always the converts that are the most extreme.....?
