July 7th 2005 London Bombings

Key Quotes and Comments:

Aswat is still being reported in non British press as a suspect in the 7th July bombings. Scotland Yard played down the links between Aswat and the bombings once he was flown back to the UK from Zambia after being arrested. This was a few days after the news broke that Aswat had been an MI6 asset. As far as I am aware he is currently in Belmarsh prison awaiting a decision on extradition to the US for charges of conspiracy to set up terrorist training camps. see below

Home Office: The press reported later that a known extremist figure and possible mastermind left the UK shortly before the bombings. There is no evidence that this individual was involved.

Presumably Haroon Aswat, this is the only reference in the government reports.

ITN: Security sources told newspapers the alleged al-Qaeda planner had up to 20 conversations with Khan and another of the bombers, Shehzad Tanweer, one just hours before the blasts.

The US authorities had attempted to arrest Aswat in the months prior to July 7th, but he was protected by the British security services and slipped away. As has become clear since 7/7, Britain, especially London, has been:

BBC - wmv : "a haven for foreign Jihadis, it was as if there were an unspoken deal, we don't arrest them and they don't attack us. Some Muslims called it a covenant of security.."

Fox News - wmv : John Loftus: "The entire British police are out chasing him, and one wing of the British government, MI6 or the British Secret Service has been hiding him. And this has been a real source of contention between the CIA, the Justice Department, and Britain."
