Spies ‘hid’ bomber tape from MPs
David Leppard and Richard Woods
MI5 is being accused of a cover-up for failing to disclose to a parliamentary watchdog that it bugged the leader of the July 7 suicide bombers discussing the building of a bomb months before the London attacks.
MI5 had secret tape recordings of Mohammad Sidique Khan, the gang leader, talking about how to build the device and then leave the country because there would be a lot of police activity.
However, despite the recordings, MI5 allowed him to escape the net. Transcripts of the tapes were never shown to the parliamentary intelligence and security committee (ISC), which investigated the attacks.
So: Blair's Narrative of the London Bombings is shown to be a pack of lies. The Sunday Times article establishes that:
a) the alleged ringleader was under MI5 surveillance, and his very phone calls were being recorded;
b) British intelligence heard him planning to build a bomb, and made no attempt to stop him;
c) he did NOT intend to commit suicide, but to flee to another country.
Rachel North is justifiably furious and could use some support: “I am shaking with anger.... I feel badly, desperately let down.” As must the entire Muslim population of Britain, which has been collectively slandered for the last year on the basis of a Narrative concocted by the people who gave us the Menezes Yarn.
