What if 1000 airline Passenger had been blown up?

Maybe it’s because I know I have to catch a transatlantic flight on September 11. Maybe I am just too fond of “What if?” historical questions. Whatever the reason, I can’t get over how quickly the world has moved on since the exposure of the Heathrow bomb plot.

Ever since the revelation that a terrorist ring intended “mass murder on an unimaginable scale”, I have been finding it all too easy to imagine what it would have been like if they had succeeded. I think we owe it to ourselves, not to mention the policemen whose months of patient surveillance foiled the plot, to picture the scenario as clearly as we can.

We cannot assume, for obvious legal reasons, that the 11 suspects who were charged in London on Tuesday are anything other than innocent, as they themselves maintain. Nor should we speculate about the other people who are still in custody awaiting possible charges. All we know, because Peter Clarke, the head of Scotland Yard’s anti-terrorism branch, told us last week, is that the police possess “highly significant video and audio recordings” of the suspects.
