Haroon Rashid Aswat, a suspect in the London bombings, is in a British prison after having been extradited from Zambia. Authorities assert that he met with Osama bin Laden at a training camp in Afghanistan. He may also face extradition to the US on charges of seeking to establish a terrorist camp in Oregon. (London Times, Aug. 9)
The conspiranoid website Infowars adds another interesting wrinkle, claiming that Aswat had been a British intelligence asset in Kosovo in the ’90s. But the site incongruously claims that he has been “allowed to go free” because of this, while by all accounts Aswat is currently cooling his heels in London’s Belmarsh prison. And the link to the source for the claim (“the July 29 edition of FOX News Channel’s Day Side programme”) seems to have gone dead.
