MI6 Warned US Of Al-Qaeda attacks
"The Americans knew of plans to use commercial aircraft in unconventional ways,
possibly as flying bombs," said a senior Foreign Office source.
MI6 warned the American intelligence services about a plot to hijack aircraft and
crash them into buildings two years before the September 11 attacks.
Liaison staff at the American embassy in Grosvenor Square in London were
passed a secret report by MI6 in 1999 after the intelligence service picked up
indications from human intelligence sources (Humint) that Osama Bin Laden's
followers were planning attacks in which civilian aircraft could be used in
"unconventional ways."
Details of the MI6 warning, expected to emerge during secret Congressional
hearings this week in Washington into alleged intelligence failings, will increase
pressure on the Bush administration for a radical shake-up of America,s
counterterrorism efforts.
MI6 had information as early as 1998 that Al-Qaeda was plotting fresh attacks. A
series of warnings was passed to Washington, some concerning threats to
American interests in Europe, including the US embassy in Paris. One message
detailed heightened activity by suspected Al-Qaeda terror cells.
"The Americans knew of plans to use commercial aircraft in unconventional ways,
possibly as flying bombs," said a senior Foreign Office source.
A US government spokesman declined to comment.
