Terror Suspects - Place Your Bets

Call me a cynic, but I'm curious to find out how many of the 22 suspects arrested and held without charge under the 2000 Terrorism Act for their involvement in a plot to crash 9 (or was it 10? or was it 20? - depends which paper you read) passenger jets into US cities will actually be charged with any terror offences, and how many of those will be convicted.

My prediction is that some of them may be charged with other offences not covered by the act (e.g., the kiddie porn discovery on the siezed computer of a terror suspect recently), but most will be released without charge.

Why do I believe this? Just based on the Home Office's own statistics
