Brit jihadis found guilty of plot to attack US troops near an air base

BBC:
A delivery driver from Luton has been jailed for life, with a minimum term of 12 years, for plotting to kill US personnel outside an air base.

Junead Khan, 25, used his job to scout US bases for potential victims.

He intended to stage a road accident outside the Lakenheath base and attack people who came to help, a court heard.

Khan had also been found guilty, along with his uncle, Shazib Khan, 23, of preparing to go to Syria to join so-called Islamic State (IS).

Shazib Khan, 23, was given a custodial sentence of eight years, with an extended period of five years on licence.
'Terrorist propaganda'

Junead Khan also exchanged online messages with an IS fighter in Syria.

Prosecutors claimed the man Khan exchanged messages with, who used the name Abu Hussain, was British-born Junaid Hussain.

Hussain was killed in a US drone strike in the IS stronghold of Raqqa just weeks after his link with the planned UK attack was discovered.

One message described an attack on military personnel, which they compared with the murder of Fusilier Lee Rigby in Woolwich in 2013.

Police officers had visited Khan as part of the national anti-extremism programme Prevent.

But the court heard Khan mocked the programme in a series of scathing WhatsApp messages.

There is more.

The British have a real problem with Islamists infiltration and programs like "Prevent" are completely inadequate to the threat presented.  These people are Islamic religious bigots and they are immune to reason when they think they are on a mission from God.

The efforts of law enforcement have also been crippled by liberal policies that make deportation of the perps extremely difficult and many times leads to a costly requirement of keeping them int eh country and under close surveillance because of concerns about  "human rights" of people who are mass murder wannabes.  The concern for the "human rights" of people like this is more than passing strange.
