  • Former biker infiltrated al-Qaeda

    And claims to have aided in the targeting of Anwar al-Awlaki.

    While I can't corroborate his story regarding how Awlaki was targeted, I can place him on Awlaki's blog, and in Samir Khan's social network.

    Still not corroboration, but if he's making this story up, he's done a nice job of backstopping it.

      Here's some local UK responses:

      If on the level, this actually seems to involve three security services - PET, CIA and presumably the British would have had to be informed - at the very least. It is not as if Luton is short of radicals...............

        I find it interesting that he is so well prepared to back up his claims. Almost as though one or more of the agencies involved helped him out with that - perhaps because some other government agency reneged on their promise of financial compensation.

          Storm seems to have popped up again in the media in the past few days (perhaps he needs a cash injection before Christmas!) It reminded me to have a look at the responses on the Islamic Awakening Forum on this case - of which there is over 20 pages!

          It is of use for the various links to many of the English language articles on this case, plus the general sense of outrage. I do not think any of the Jyllands-Posten material is in English which is frustrating.
