BRITAIN'S MI5 SPY AGENCY INFILTRATED BY AL-QAEDA

Maybe this was their plan all along: Create small scale chaos with the bombings of a few trains and buses and then wait for the spy agencies to come to them for help... I wonder how deep Al-Qaeda operatives have gotten into our own US agencies? We've all seen '24', and how easy it would be to use even minor positions within these types of organizations to thwart ongoing operations against terrorist enemies...
TERRORISTS from al-Qaeda have infiltrated Britain's security services, the Sunday Mirror can reveal.

Bosses at M15 believe they unwittingly recruited the Muslim extremists after the July 7 suicide bombings in London last year which killed 52 people.

They were signed up as part of a drive to find more Muslims and Arabic speakers to work as spies to help prevent future attacks by Osama bin Laden fantatics.

Spymasters found some of the agents in Britain's universities and colleges and persuaded them to pass on information about suspected terrorists.

But a senior ministerial source has told the Sunday Mirror: "The truth is that it has now been discovered that some of those people have strong links with al-Qaeda.

The question becomes... what do we do once we assume our agencies have been penetrated? Looks like its time to step up counter-intel ops. Where's Jack Bauer when we need him....
