As arrests multiply in the cases of the failed car bomb attacks in London and Glasgow, the British investigation looks more and more impressive. Authorities seem to have spent the two years since the transit bombings sharpening their intelligence gathering on extremist elements. They also got lucky, though, because the would-be bombers made so many mistakes. It’s hardly encouraging news that those in custody include at least three physicians — individuals who don’t fit the terrorist profile of a disaffected, disenfranchised youth. Why would such educated professionals be drawn to such activities?
