“One of al-Qaeda’s most dangerous figures has been revealed as a double agent working for MI5, raising criticism from European governments, which repeatedly called for his arrest.
“Britain ignored warnings – which began before the September 11 attacks – from half a dozen friendly governments about Abu Qatada’s links with terrorist groups and refused to arrest him. Intelligence chiefs hid from European allies their intention to use the cleric as a key informer against Islamic militants in Britain.”
This old report – I don’t recall reading about this before – poses an important question. Do the Australian intelligence services employ Muslim extremists to do its dirty work and gain information about Jihadists? If so, who exactly is the “enemy” our political and media elite repeat almost daily?
