A computer expert from Leeds warend police of the "anti-western" activities being carried out by two of the 7/7 bombers in October 2003. Martin Gilbertson says that he both wrote and physically spoke to Police about the pair, but his warnings went unheaded. West Yorkshire Police claim it is impossible to say wether they received the letter or if it was acted upon.
A computer expert warned police about the activities of two of the 7 July London bombers in 2003, he says.

Martin Gilbertson told the Guardian he was concerned by material Mohammad Sidique Khan and Shehzad Tanweer produced at a West Yorkshire bookshop.

He also told the BBC he wrote to local police to express his concerns about the "anti-Western" material but that no action was taken.

A West Yorkshire police spokesman said it was impossible to track the letter.

Mr Gilbertson, who is a former Hell's Angel, said he came into contact with the two when he worked on computers at the Islamic bookshop in Beeston, Leeds, where both the men lived.

From all the news that comes out about the bombings last year, it would seem to paint a picture of general neglect by the security services in their duty to stop such things from happening.

There is this latest report and the fact that MI5 tracked the pair but deemed them no threat. There were also comments by the Home Secretary in May that the bombers did not balme Iraq, when these latest assertions by Mr Gilbertson seem to contradict that.

Seems to paint a picture across the Security Services, whatever country, of them dropping the ball when it counts.

One has to wonder, what if?
