This latest angle to the ranting 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…
