US Issued alert on 7/7 bombers in 2003!

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The leader of the July 7th bombings in London was considered such a danger that he was banned from flying to America two years before the attack in London. This is according to a book written by a US Intelligence specialist.

    MI5 has always denied knowing that Mohammad Sidique Khan was a potential danger, The CIA is alleged to have discovered in 2003 that he was planning attacks on American cities.

    The claims contradict evidence from Dame Eliza Manningham-Buller, The DG of MI5, to the Parliamentary & Security Committie that Khan had never been listed as a terror threat.

    The disclosure will add to demands for Tony bLIAR to agree to a full public inquiry into Intelligence lapses before the 7/7 attack.

  4. If the Americans told British why didn't they listen and act Do you get the impression that there must be a double agent inside MI5 surely they don't set out to make themselves look such fools or just plain stupid. To think all these people were killed or injured because the "Experts" can't seem to choose genuine intelligence information from rubbish e.g.Forrest gate
  5. Here we go again.

    Intelligence leads to a raid, they get slaughtered in the press. Intelligence falls below the Radar, they get slaughtered!

    Everybody makes it out to be a conspiricy. WHY would they WANT to have london/anywhere bombed. What will a public investigation prove?

    I bet they get so much info and hoaxes etc that good stuff will fall below radar, Intelligence is more of a black art than a science!

    At the end of the day it was the TERRORISTS that bombed london and we would do well to remember that!!!!!
  6. Well said Oneshot.MargaretRobb, I would wait until more information becomes available. The rest of your summary is pure bacofoil.

    I seem to remember SiS assessing the so called WMD threat in Iraq. Was that listened to by the Americans or indeed the PM?

    SiS has limited assets contrary to popular belief, and that is tasked according to the level of threat perceived. There will I fear be an inquiry , as no one in Government is in the immediate firing line, and once again , hard working and dedicated men and women will be hung out to dry.
  7. Interesting article from the Sunday Telegraph which makes a similar, valid points:
