“American spy chiefs have told the President that the CIA has launched a vast spying operation in the UK to prevent a repeat of the 9/11 attacks being launched from Britain.
They believe that a British-born Pakistani extremist entering the US under the visa waiver programme is the most likely source of another terrorist spectacular on American soil.
A British intelligence source revealed that a staggering four out of 10 CIA operations designed to thwart direct attacks on the US are now conducted against targets in Britain.”
Britain has already exported several terrorists who have launched attacks in other countries. The more this happens, the more it is going to harm Britain’s relations with other states: just imagine if those initial reports about those responsible for the Mumbai atrocities being British had turned out to be true.
