Shades of Greenwich

There’s been nothing in the British MSM that I have seen as yet. It would appear that a similar crime as that which was carried out against Lee Rigby in Greenwich was foiled in Australia.

In what was called the largest anti-terror operation in Australian history, police have arrested 15 people allegedly linked to the Islamic State, some who plotted a public beheading.

Police said the planned attack was to be “random.” The killers were to behead a victim and then drape the body in the black Islamic State flag, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

The Associated Press reported 800 officers raided more than a dozen locations in Sydney, Brisbane and Logan.

This happened yesterday and I would consider it as more important than that referendum which seems to dominate the news at the moment.

Update: The BBC has a report now on their website. They’re only 36 hours behind with it.
