Do these recent Cabinet level leaks actually tell us anything new ? Are they from genuine whistleblowers, or are they part of the some disinformation campaign ?
Why should we trust the Government with our private data, when emails and memos about meetings between the Home Secretary and the Foreign Secretary, involving correspondence with both the Security Service ("SyS") Mi5, and the Secret Intelligence Service ("SIS") MI6 about alleged terrorist supporters in Britain magically appear in the New Statesman magazine ?
What about today's leak of what the public have the right to expect should be a very limited distribution list, for copies of an "eight-page report, by the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC)" ?
JTAC is "a self-standing organisation comprised of representatives from eleven government departments and agencies."
MI5 admits: we've run out of leads on bombers
A LEAKED secret document reveals that MI5 has discovered almost nothing about the worst terrorist attack against Britain despite months of investigation.
After the biggest MI5 and police inquiry ever mounted, a secret report for Tony Blair and senior ministers into the July 7 London bombings states: “We know little about what three of the bombers did in Pakistan, when attack planning began, how and when the attackers were recruited, the extent of any external direction or assistance and the extent and role of any wider network.”
The eight-page report, by the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC), admits that MI5 still does not know whether the attacks of July 7 and July 21 were linked and whether Al-Qaeda chiefs were behind them.
Will there be a full scale "leak inquiry" ?
What about the people facing charges over the alleged "let's bomb Al-Jazeera" memo?
What about the people who have been arrested over details leaked from the Independent Police Complaints Commission regarding the blunders which led to the death of Jean Charles de Menezes at Stockwell Tube Station ?
