Security Alert

Police arrest two more in connection with the bomb attempts in Britain. On Friday, police found two Mercedes packed with propane gas, gasoline, and nails.

Has anyone noticed that police, FBI, and so on seem to break up these plots with some regularity, but always by intelligence efforts? Has airport security ever stopped a terrorist plot? All of us taking off our jackets, our shoes, our belts, calmly (or not so calmly) waiting in the endless lines and walking through machines -- have these security people ever caught any terrorists? I remember a lot of recent headlines about police discovering and stopping terrorist plots, but I can't remember one about airport security stopping a terrorist.
