Driving home from my night shift in the ED (ER) this morning I heard about "The worst terror plot on Aussie soil foiled" . All I could think of was thank the Gummy Mary for the Federal Police, Vic and NSW Police, and ASIO their diligence in monitoring.
AFP boss Tony Negus said: "Nineteen search warrants across Victoria have been issued leading to the arrest of four men, a series of other men have also been spoken to in relation to this investigation."
"A core investigation team of 150 people have been working on this job since January 2009. The search warrants are the result of a seven-month joint investigation after law enforcement and intelligence agencies identified a potential threat to Australia's national security.""Police will allege that the men were planning to carry out suicide terror attacks on a defence establishment within Australia involving an armed assault with automatic weapons. Details of the planning indicate the alleged offenders were prepared to inflict a sustained attack on military personnel until they themselves were killed."
"The investigation has also identified travel of Australian citizens to Somalia to participate in hostilities in that country." (3AW radio interview).
