BBC News - Bomb suspects: Key facts

Interesting to read some articles - especially in Pakistan-Afghanistan relationship pre-9/11 attacks, and Pakistan's minister of state for foreign affairs, Mohammad Siddique Khan Kanju.

PS  YES - foreign to us but very common name in Pakistan. Mohammad - Khan - separated by a single name: Siddique.

USA WELCOME: Make Yourself Known @BooMan Tribune and add some cheers!

Thanks. It appears that although the two men are definitely not the same, they were connected. British intelligence is apparently investigating the leak of Noor Khan's name in late July 2004 and Khan'sn ties to many members of this same group. There may be a mastermind apparently tied to both the bombing and to the khan who had been turned and became a covert operative inside Al-Qaeda. The mastermind may have gotten away when the US admin. leaked Khan's name in order tos core political points during the uS election.

If this is true, every American should apologize to the British families who lost loved ones because we have utterly failed in bringing pressure on our government to tell the truth and put the cause of justice, peace, and honor above their petty selfish (and dangerous) interests.

If indeed the mastermind is ever found and he is shown to have ties to Noor Khan, then I expect the British people to respond furiously to the American betrayal of the 50-odd people who died.
