UK-Yemen Plot

A man who worked for British Airways was arrested last year for terrorism and recently convicted.  The government just finished decrypting his e-mails, which contained correspondence with Anwar Al-Awlaki.  Apparently Al-Awlaki wanted to get a person or package on board a plane heading for the United States.  This is from e-mails in February of 2010, months before the AQAP bombs found in late October of 2010.  Unfortunately, it took nine months to decrypt all of these e-mails.
