Globetrotting Leeds part time teacher masterminds bomb plot - honest guv. Would MI5 tell a lie?

Mohammed Sidique Khan, 30, who died in the London Transport 7/7 bombings, ( he was unknown to the security services in July 2005 ) featured in a filmed 2004 surveillance operation in which he was speaking to a British-based terrorism suspect says BBC 2 Newsnight, citing a single, unnamed "well-placed source".

The BBC said it had no independent corroboration that Khan was secretly filmed by intelligence services talking to the terror suspect, who cannot be named for legal reasons.

The BBC said a suspect held in connection with the 2002 Bali bombings has alleged that Khan went to Malaysia and the Philippines in 2001 to meet leaders of al Qaeda-linked group Jemaah Islamiah suspect said Khan trained with leaders of the group in the Philippines. The BBC do not say under what conditions ( torture ?) me made this allegation or where.

In 2003, Khan met an Islamic extremist in Pakistan who cannot be named for legal reasons who has since confessed to supplying military equipment to al Qaeda, (night sights) the BBC reported. He is a U.S. citizen from a Pakistani family from New York who travelled to Pakistan a week after the September 11 attacks. Khan, is also alleged to have seen this same man in Leeds in 2003, the BBC said.

A London police spokeswoman declined to comment. No one at the Home Office could be reached for comment.

This sounds like a crock of shit…. NO. This IS a crock of shit.

I had better go and check up on that drying paint.

It WAS a crock of shit

I particularly enjoyed the line about the terrorist fixer who, as well as supplying 'night sights', also got his hands on 'camping equipment' for his Al Qaeda masters.

Curiously, there was no mention that the Israeli government admitted that Khan visited Israel a couple of years ago...
