The Telegraph has learned disturbing information that terrorists with links to Iran “were caught stockpiling tons of explosive materials on the outskirts of London in a secret British bomb factory.” The plot was uncovered by M15 and police in London in 2015. Now, the Washington Examiner notes, “Despite the gravity of the discovery, the public and lawmakers were kept in the dark about the matter for years as the U.K. continued to support the nuclear deal.”
This discovery was “so significant that then-Prime Minister David Cameron and then Home Secretary Theresa May were briefed on the details personally.”
Sources said, “the discovery of the explosives was not an aberration but was part of an international plot by Iran-backed Hezbollah to lay the groundwork for future attacks.” Why then, did the U.K. continue to debate whether or not to label the entirety of Hezbollah, which has support and funding from Iran, as a terrorist group?
The Examiner reports that “The U.S. branded all of Hezbollah as a terrorist group in the 1990s, but in the U.K. only the armed wing of the group was designated as such until this year.” Now we know the ridiculous hesitation to label the group if they had this information since 2015.
The terrorists stashed “thousands of disposable ice packs containing ammonium nitrate” according to the Telegraph; a common ingredient in homemade bombs, the same explosive used in the Oklahoma City Bombing in 1995.
