Terrorist Attack Highly Likely at 2012 Olympic Games in London

Hmmm. The Associated Press says that a terrorist attack is "highly likely" at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. But AP doesn't say where the threat is likely to come from. Enraged Anglicans? Misguided Methodists? Radical Quakers? Hindu Extremists? Buddhist Fundamentalists? It sure would be nice to know the source of terrorism.

LONDON -- Britain's counterterrorism minister says the national terror threat will remain at a severe level during the 2012 London Olympics.

The current threat classification means that an attack is highly likely in Britain.

Minister Pauline Neville-Jones says "we must work on the assumption that [the threat] will remain as it is."

She says the next -- and most extreme level -- is "critical."

Neville-Jones also told an Olympic security conference in London on Thursday that more needs to be done to combat cyber crime to ensure the games are not a "soft target."
