Default Terror threat

A USB stick found alongside an arms cache in Ceuta contained a list of potential targets inside the Spanish enclave, marking a ‘qualitative leap’ in the terror threat to Spain, investigators said yesterday.

Default Re: Terror threat

There's a couple ways you can interpret this -

a) An increased terror threat. A need to be more fearful. Just what they want you to do.

b) A sign of increased vigilance. They seem to be making better use of surveillance, and actually using the intelligence they've obtained, ultimately, catching more of them. Finally.

I've seen articles on the intelligence process in Britain that explain why there is sometimes a delay (and it's probably a similar process in Spain and other European countries). They often prefer to let a conspiracy develop, so they can trace weapons supplies, infiltrate networks etc. It is of course a two-edged sword, and you have to make sure you can move quickly when a plot is close to fruition (and they don't always manage it). But don't assume the intelligence people are not focussed on this.
