Terror plot highlights problem of radicalism in UK

Charles Allen, a retired CIA officer and Bush intelligence chief at the Department of Homeland Security says “The British have an immense problem. There are more challenges in Muslim immigrants integrating into British society than there is in America, a lack of assimilation, a great deal of alienation.”

He feels al-Qaida has worked much harder “to get Westerners, people who live in the West, who may be citizens of the West” for training in tribal strongholds.
