UK counterterrorism: where is the logic

with 4 comments

After Abu Qutada has been freed on condition of “not seeing Bin Laden in London”, now UK is prepared to free another terrorist: Algerian Al-Qaeda no2 “U”.

Appeal Court judges ruled in April that the man, a 45-year-old Algerian veteran of al-Qaeda’s Afghan training camps, should be freed on bail. But discussions between security agencies and U’s lawyers became deadlocked over the conditions restricting his movements and whom he can meet when he leaves prison.

Another one has fleed from prison, during Friday prayers, after leaving a suicide note, which led the police to believe he is on a suicide mission to target others. The 23-year-old, who can’t be named for legal reasons, is not the first one who escapes from the police: Zeeshan Siddiqui, a former London Underground worker linked to the leader of the July 7 bomb plot, has been missing since September last year.

Meanwhile British MI5 warns Al-Qaeda is planning to but used ambulances, fire trucks and police cars to launch suicide bomb attacks in Britain. Also a terrorist expert has warned that UK airports are vulnerable to attack, one year after Glasgow bombings.
