BBC trying to provide excuses for why the intelligence agencies always have prior contact with patsies before terrorist attacks.




Did MI5 miss chance to catch Manchester Arena bomber Salman Abedi?
https://bbc.co.uk/news/world-45021513

It has emerged that the Manchester Arena bomber was rescued by the Royal Navy from Libya's civil war - three years before he killed 22 people at a pop concert in the city and months after he first came onto MI5's radar.

Does this new fact raise questions about whether anything could have been done earlier to identify Salman Abedi as a threat - and stop him before he attacked?
At the moment, it looks like it was a quirk of history, rather than a missed opportunity.

Abedi was 19 years old in the summer of 2014 when his parents' home country was descending into an increasingly chaotic civil war.

Differing factions were vying for control and the British government became increasingly concerned about the safety of its citizens - many of whom, like Abedi, had Libyan heritage.

The Foreign Office ultimately had to close its embassy and urge Britons to leave - and the Royal Navy sent HMS Enterprise, a survey ship, to the coast off the capital, Tripoli.
Its mission was to evacuate 110 mostly British citizens, who were facing the prospect of being stranded, and deliver them to safety in Malta.

Abedi and his brother, Hashem, are believed to have been visiting their parents who had moved back to Libya, and we now know that they were on the Enterprise's passenger list.

The answer is probably not, because at the time there was no evidence he was an extremist.

But, confusingly, he had been on MI5's radar.

How can those two things be true at the same time?

It comes down to the nature of how the security service gathers intelligence.

Its mission is to identify "subjects of interest" or SOI - which is jargon for suspected extremists.

When it hears concerning information about someone, intelligence officers begin to investigate and build a picture of the individual's life, movements and associates.

So, was this a missed opportunity?

Spies and terrorists – how deep are links between British state and Manchester bomber?
http://www.davidicke.com/article/477813/manchester-bomber-enabled-british-government





'Yet another link between the British state and the Manchester Arena suicide bomber, Salman Abedi, was revealed on Tuesday, after it was reported that he was rescued from war-torn Libya by the Royal Navy in 2014.
The rescue was another example of the links between the British state and Abedi. The connections illustrate the complicated UK-Libyan relationship and how over-extended security services were fatally unable to monitor emerging homegrown terrorist threats.

Missed opportunities and unwise diplomatic wrangling would ultimately contribute to the deaths of 22 people at the Manchester Arena in May last year. Spam_A Spam_B <strong>The father and jihadists</strong>

Salman's father, Ramadan Abedi, settled in the UK after fleeing Libya where he was a prominent member of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG). The militant Islamist group found itself an unusual bedfellow for the British state, as both shared an enemy in the form of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi. At this point, the UK had severed diplomatic relations with him over his role in the Lockerbie bombing.

In 2002, whistleblower and former MI6 agent David Shayler accused the British intelligence services of sponsoring the LIFG to assassinate Gaddafi. The LIFG were allegedly given $160,000 for a failed assassination attempt in February 1996, a claim the UK government has denied.

Many LIFG members, seeking sanctuary from Gaddafi, were given refuge by Britain with a significant number settling in Manchester, where Salman was born.

As Britain, under the guidance of Tony Blair, sought rapprochement with Gaddafi, ostensibly in order to garner his assistance in the 'War on Terror,' the LIFG found themselves shunned by the country that had once welcomed them.

In 2004, their leader Abdel Hakim Belhaj was, with the assistance of MI6, 'rendered' to Tripoli where Gaddafi's forces tortured him. The following year, the UK put the group to which it had once provided refuge on its list of terrorist organizations, its usefulness apparently at an end.'

This is the Libyan reality which was created by Cameron and Sarkozy, with sceptical support from Barack Obama, the then US president, who famously referred to the Libyan debacle as a “shit show”.

Libya became a place where the Abedi family, returning from their long exile in Manchester, were able put their militant Islamist beliefs into practice. They absorbed the toxic variant of Islam espoused by the al-Qaeda clones, taking advantage of their military experience honed in the Iraq war, such as how to construct a bomb studded with pieces of metal designed to tear holes in human flesh. The bomb materials were easily available in countries like Britain.

Salman Abedi was responsible for what he did, but he could not have killed 22 people and maimed another 139 others, half of them children, if the British government had not acted as it did in Libya in 2011. And its responsibility goes well beyond its disastrous policy of joining the Libyan civil war, overthrowing Gaddafi and replacing him with warring tribes and militias.'

Why DID they hide the truth on the Manchester bomber?
Victims left angry after they were kept in the dark over the Royal Navy plucking terrorist from Libyan warzone

* Salman Abedi was one of 110 Britons rescued by the Royal Navy from Libya

* Security services had concerns about Abedi seven months before the rescue

* He was rescued from Libya by HMS Enterprise along with his brother  Hashem

* Last night, MPs demanded to know how the security services lost track of Abedi

Victims of the Manchester Arena attack last night demanded to know why the Royal Navy's rescue of the bomber from war-torn Libya was kept secret. The Daily Mail revealed yesterday that HMS Enterprise plucked Salman Abedi, then 19, to safety as fighting intensified in August 2014. He flew home to the UK, but less than three years later set off a shrapnel-filled suicide bomb at a pop concert in the city where he grew up – killing 22 people, including seven children.

An independent review of MI5 and counter-terrorism police's contact with Abedi was published in December. But the report by former terror watchdog David Anderson QC made no mention of the fact that Abedi and his brother, Hashem, 21, were among 100 British citizens evacuated by the Navy survey ship. Last night politicians, survivors and lawyers representing the families of those killed in the atrocity attacked the Government for keeping the public 'in the dark' about the rescue.

'Fundamental failings': MPs say MI5 and police could have stopped suicide bomber Salman Abedi after he visited jailed extremist and did not prevent him travelling to Libya before he killed 22 in Manchester attack

* Security Committee releases report in lessons to learn from 2017 terror attack
* They find Manchester bomber was allowed to visit ISIS recruiter in prison
* Authorities failed to follow-up concerns about Parsons Green attacker
* MPs slam internet companies and call for boycotts by advertisers

By Richard Spillett, Crime Correspondent and Sebastian Murphy-bates For Mailonline
Published: 09:12, 22 November 2018
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6417191/Terrorism-leads-pursued-MI5-anti-terror-police-doubled-year.html

Manchester suicide bomber Salman Abedi was allowed to visit an extremist in a UK prison and travel back and forth to Libya unchallenged before killing 22 concert-goers, a damning report has revealed. Failings by the security services in the lead-up to the bombing, which injured more than 800, were today slammed by MPs on Parliament's Intelligence and Security Committee. Abedi, 22 visited a category A extremist inmate in prison - previously identified as ISIS recruiter Abdalraouf Abdallah - but 'no follow up action was taken', the report found.

The report found police had not alerted prison authorities about the risk posed by Abdallah, meaning his visitors were not security checked. Counter-terror police were also alerted to Abedi frequently travelling to Libya from 2014 onwards but was not subject to travel restrictions of monitoring.  Abedi's case was flagged for review, but was no re-examined before he slaughtered parents and children at the Ariana Grande concern, today's report found.

MI5 has accepted it 'moved too slowly' to review Abedi's case after an investigation into him was dropped in 2014. The terrorist regularly went to see Abdalraouf Abdallah, who was jailed after trying to help other Manchester-based fanatics join extremists in Syria.  Despite this, Abedi was not at any point considered for a referral to the Prevent anti-terror scheme, MPs revealed.

ISC chairman Dominic Grieve said: 'What we can say is that there were a number of failures in the handling of Salman Abedi's case and while it is impossible to say whether these would have prevented the devastating attack, we have concluded that, as a result of the failings, potential opportunities to prevent it were missed.' He noted that both MI5 and counter-terror police have been 'thorough in their desire to learn from past mistakes', adding: 'The lessons from last year's tragic events must now result in real action.'

hirty-six people died in five terror attacks on UK soil last year, with four striking the capital, prompting today's Parliamentary report.

The report found:
  • Internet firms are failing to remove extremist material from the web and should do more to help authorities tackle terrorism.
  • Prisons need to be more alive to potential extremism among inmates.
  • Home Office has failed to hand over key documents relating to the asylum seeker who set off a bomb in Parsons Green.
  • Chances to catch the Manchester bomber were missed.
  • Delays in identifying suspects and getting foreign documents translated can hamper investigations.

Fury at 'fundamental failings' in the handling of Parsons Green bomber Ahmed Hassan have led MPs to order a separate review in his case after the Home Office delayed handing over key information. On the Parsons Green attack, the Mr Grieve said: 'There were fundamental failings around this young man's arrival in the UK and how he was handled thereafter. 'There was clear evidence that he had been with IS, that he had witnessed or participated in acts of violence. His behaviour showed signs if disturbance.'  The Committee made broader recommendations in relation to all five terror attacks last year.

MPs castigated internet firms for failing to tackle the scourge of extremism online and call on large firms to boycott advertising with them until more is done to take down hate speech and bomb recipes. The report states: 'In relation to explosives, we found the system for regulating and reporting purchases of the ingredients used to make explosives was hopelessly out of date. ' It continues: 'We recommend that pressure is out on Communications Service Providers (CSPs) by the business community, following the example of companies such as Unilever. 'We strongly consider that action which affects CSPs' profits will hit home harder than an appeal to them to "do the right thing" and could force them to take action on this crucial issue.' The reports also criticises authorities to failing to learn lessons from the 7/7 attacks and the killing of Lee Rigby, adding: 'The lessons from last year's tragic events must now result in real action.'


What are the key findings and outcomes of today's report? 

'Fundamental failings' and in the lead-up to terror attacks that killed 35 people last year have been slammed by MPs.

Terrorists used knives and rented vehicles and in the Westminster, London Bridge and Finsbury Park attacks, marking a move to a method of terror more covert than bomb-building.

Key failings relating to last year's five attacks are listed below:

Westminster Bridge, central London, March 22

Terrorist Khalid Masood's phone was flagged to MI5 as being of interest more than six weeks before the secret services identified him

Today's report stated: 'Whilst we recognise that "joining the dots" between unconnected pieces of information and identifiers is a highly complex task. we nonetheless urge MI5 to consider what can be done.'

Manchester Arena, May 22 

The monitoring of extremists in prison was found to be 'haphazard' by Parliament's Intelligence and Security Committee after Manchester attacker Salman Abedi was able to visit radical Abdalraouf Abdallah.

Prison officers will now be trained to identify if someone has converted to Islam after associating with extremists.

Abedi was never referred to the counter-extremist Prevent scheme despite him being investigated by MI5, which accepted it 'moved too slowly' after dropping the probe in 2014

London Bridge, June 3

Khuram Butt, who led the attack on London Bridge, hired the van he used just six hours before he struck.

The Committee has called for authorities to have access to more information on rented vehicles in Britain.

Finsbury Park Mosque, North London, June 19

Committee chairman Dominic Grieve said little could have been done to predict attacker Darren Osbourne's plans

Parsons Green, West London, September 15 

Referring to Parsons Green attacker Ahmed Hassan, committee chairman Dominic Grieve said: 'He was an asylum seeker, he described himself as being underage and he was given appropriate support for someone in that position.

But, there was clear evidence that he had been with IS, that he had witnessed of participated in or been involved in acts of violence and his behaviour, which showed some clear signs of disturbance in settling in. That should have ended up being looked at.'

Despite his terrorist background, there was no formal plan to manage the teenager, the committee found.


Secret service operatives and anti-terror police have more than doubled the amount of leads pursued in the past year. Their systems are tracking more than 20,000 more people following a wave of terror strikes on UK soil last year. The people in question are subjects of interest whose cases were investigated but then closed. Reopening the files means MI5 and anti-extremism police had more than twice as many leads to investigate in the last 12 months. Many of the 20,000 remain extremists but were not involved in planning attacks, though a number of 2017's plotters were already known to secret service, prompting the secret service and police to review their methods this summer.

Pilot schemes could mean councils and other agencies getting in the act by sharing intelligence to fight extremism. A government counter-terror strategy published in the summer said the schemes will work to identify who among the thousands of former 'subjects of interest' pose the greatest risk. They will have to factor in the switch for some terrorists to vehicle and knife attacks, which are easier to co-ordinate than gun and bomb attacks.

Parliament's Intelligence and Security Committee is preparing a report on the five terror attacks that hit the UK in 2017.
