Police in Britain are investigation how a 17 page document that outlined in detail the security arrangements for the visit of Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf came to be found on a street in London. The document was found hours before Musharraf and his wife landed following a flight from Washington. The document included dossiers, maps, movements, and police radio frequencies. Police point out the personal security arrangements were not effected.

LONDON (AFP) - British police were probing why a top secret file detailing security arrangements for the visit of Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf to Britain this week was found abandoned on a London street.

The 17-page document was reportedly found by a delivery driver in a brown envelope on upmarket Curzon Street hours before Musharraf and his wife touched down at Heathrow from Washington on Sunday.

Titled "Visit of His Excellency General Pervez Musharraf, President of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan", the papers reportedly disclosed the security arrangements at the London hotel where the president and his entourage were staying.

The dossier containing maps showing Musharraf's movements, explaining how to identify undercover police, and giving details of police radio channels and secret police call signs, was given to the Daily Mirror newspaper.

Musharraf seems to lead a charmed life. He escaped an assassination attempt earlier in the year when a jamming device detonated a bomb after his car had passed it. Now this occurs. No doubt it was a mistake, but it comes on the heels of the French police “losing” a training bag of plastic explosives on any of 90 flights. Given the closeness of the events, no doubt the risk was deemed low and its such as movements and the like can be changed easily for security. But human error makes it tough to defend against all terrorism.

Maybe it was human error, but an error of a terroristic insider job. That of a secret plot in which was unexpectedly foiled by a delivery driver.

But that close to his arrival? Its not alot of time to plan a proper job. A few weeks before and I cna buy thats, but a hour or too? Simple changes can restore some of the lost security IMHO.

There is probably a billion ways to carry out an assassination. If it was a insider job then it was well planned ahead of time. The second part of this would be a short window of opportunity for the terrorist plan to unfold.
