Link to recent BBC article
speaking on the 7/7 inquests 'witness G' , who acts as chief of staff for
the service's director general Jonathan Evans.
This is an official inquiry and he is in effect speaking on behalf of MI5
Personally I feel let down by MI5 not being able to protect the people that were killed and injured, when the bombers had already been previously
been watched and followed by MI5 and photographed. AND were also of interest to the FBI who thought of them a threat to UK national security AND
possibly the US, these thoughts were shared with MI5 but they[MI5] still failed to contact local authorities, who could have used powers to spy on the
bombers, right up to the attacks.and used evidence to convict them.
You would think that if you were of interest to both the FBI, AND MI5 that you wouldn't be able to do such a horrific thing and go unoticed.
I know it is easy to criticise people with such hindsight now, like 'witness G' mentions. but this IS explicitly one of the reasons why MI5 exist's
as an orginisation today.
We are responsible for protecting against threats to national security, such as terrorism.
