If any political considerations trumped the plans of British officials on the case, then this is already a disgrace. Here's the money quote from this NBC piece:
"In contrast to previous reports, the official suggested an attack was not imminent, saying the suspects had not yet purchased any airline tickets. In fact, some did not even have passports."
