Britain’s MI5 Connection to Woolwich Slasher Michael Adebolajo

SEE  ALSO: The Terror of Woolwich: Many more questions than answers

21st Century Wire says…

What a difference a day makes…

People are still in a state of shock and disbelief following a recent attack branded as a ‘terrorist” event by the UK media establishment and echoed in political corridors. It seemed so random…

CaptureAside form appearing random, the brutal Woolwich attack this past week was one of the most bizarre and strangest of its kind yet.

Many observers have already witnessed the heavily politicised, anti-government and ‘Islamic terrorist’ narrative which was immediately applied to the event by the corporate media.

When this story broke, we told our 21WIRE readers that there is more than meets the eye here. Just like with Boston, it appears we were correct again…

One thing that we learned over the years here at 21st Century Wire is that if an event seems strange, then there is an almost certain probability that the back story is equally as strange and twisted – just like with dead Boston Bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s rather diverse FBI and CIA connections, it often features the covert secret security services in some way. In the case of Tamerlan, the FBI were forced by the media to admit their relationship with him. Has the same thing has happened again with this latest ‘terror attack’ in East London? You decide…

This latest angle to the ranting of ‘Woolwich Slasher’, Michael Adebolajo, has been birthed by the state-run BBC of all people, perhaps by accident, or maybe not…

After revealing on TV that Adebolajo was in Kenya and was being recruited or perhaps ‘groomed’ in some way – by the British intelligence services, the attacker’s childhood friend and BBC Newsnight guest, Abu Nusaybah, was prompted arrested by the British Anti-Terror agency should raise more questions than answers.

Two important questions: was this attack just a random event, and more importantly, what is the real connection between this assailant and the British MI5 intelligence services? Was he being groomed as a an informant, or as a operational role player – or could MI5 harassment have contributed to radicalising the man? All fair questions.

And what was a young Nigerian like Michael Adebolajo doing in a place like Kenya? One answer: not likely on holiday. The Mail has reported two days ago that he “may have been stopped or arrested on his way to join the militant Islamist group Al Shabaab in Somalia in the past year”.

More importantly, have British authorities detained an innocent man in Abu Nusaybah, as a political prisoner, or because he knows too much?

The death of an off duty British soldier is certainly a tragedy. But this latest development points to something even more shocking right now – that a culture of spooks and secrecy in Britain has somehow given birth to a nasty blister on the surface of our society. Either way you cut it, attaching MI5 to Adebolajo does not look good.

Watch as the BBC carefully smooth over the allegations regarding MI5 as perfectly ‘normal procedure’ in today’s Britain…

Woolwich suspect’s friend arrested after appearing on Newsnight

A friend of one of the suspected killers of a soldier butchered in a London street was arrested by counter-terrorism officers yesterday after going on television to allege that Michael Adebolajo was tortured in Kenya and harassed by MI5 – who asked him to spy for them.

The allegations came from Abu Nusaybah, who was arrested under terrorism legislation minutes after finishing recording his interview for BBC Newsnight.

The Guardian understands that Nusaybah is connected to extremists formerly in the banned group al-Muhajiroun. Counter-terrorism officers turned up at reception at the BBC’s central London headquarters as his interview was being recorded an hour before it was broadcast.

The officers waited, then arrested Nusaybah as he left the BBC’s headquarters.

In the interview, Abu Nusaybah in part attributed Adebolajo’s radicalisation to his alleged ill-treatment in Kenya.

Nusaybah alleged that Adebolajo was arrested while studying in a village in Kenya last year. After refusing to answer questions, Adebolajo was told that he was “not in the UK” and was then, he claimed, sexually assaulted. On his return, “he became more reclined [sic], less talkative. He wasn’t his bubbly self,” said Nusaybah, who said that the experience further radicalised Adebolajo.

The Guardian has learned that, last year, Adebolajo went to a lawyer to complain of harassment by MI5, who are drawing criticism today for knowing about the 28-year-old but not assessing him to be a bigger terrorist threat.

He was arrested at the scene of the soldier’s murder in Woolwich on Wednesday in the first terror-related death on mainland Britain since the 7 July 2005 bombings.

The Guardian also understands from Whitehall sources that they were aware that Adebolajo was detained in Kenya before being deported…
