'I'll miss you sweetheart,' said London suicide bomber in video message to daughter

Mohammad Sidique Khan is alleged to have been involved in the July 7 London Tube Bombings.

Was he a patsy?

The Daily mail, 11 April 2008, produced a somewhat misleading story entitled:

'I'll miss you sweetheart,' said London suicide bomber in video message to daughter

'I'll miss you sweetheart,' said London suicide bomber in video ...

Mohammad Sidique Khan is the alleged suicide bomber concerned.

Reportedly, Khan's wife Hasina was in possession of a video made by Khan in 2004.

Hasina gave the video to a friend who later passed it on to police after the July 7 bombing.

In the 2004 video, Mohammad Sidique Khan reportedly tells his daughter Maryam, then just a few months old:

"Sweetheart, not long to go now. And I'm going to really, really miss you a lot. I'm thinking about it already.

"Look, I absolutely love you to bits and you have been the happiest thing in my life. You and your mum, absolutely brilliant.

"I don't know what else to say. I just wish I could have been part of your life, especially these growing up - these next months, they're really special with you learning to walk and things."

The messages were made shortly before Khan travelled to Pakistan in November 2004.

A London court has been told that Khan recorded the video because he was preparing to die while fighting jihad in Afghanistan.

It is possible that Khan's video message to his daughter simply meant - I'm off to Pakistan to visit family and I will miss an important part of your early development. Or, I'm off to Pakistan to do work with the security services and it's always possible I may not come back.

What has been alleged about Khan in the past?

According to a report in the Guardian in 2005, a 'friend' of Khan told the BBC that Khan had travelled regularly to Pakistan and Afghanistan to attend military training camps. [3]

These training camps, which Khan may or may not have visited, have been linked to the CIA. (Context of '1984-March 1985: US and Pakistan Begin Training ...)

According to Rohan Gunaratna, a research fellow at the Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence, Khan is alleged to have been trained with Indonesian terror group Jemaah Islamiyah and to be directly involved with the 2002 Bali bombing [5].

Gunaratna is suspected of being a disinformation agent for the security services ( Cached ).

Some people have blamed the Bali Bombing on the CIA and its friends in the Indonesian military. ( aangirfan: The Bali Bomb, Ralph Boyce and Robert Finnegan)


aangirfan: Khan is working for the security services?

aangirfan: Official version of 7/7 London bombings does not make sense

London-Bombs: No one charged in 7 July attacks; 'Mastermind' Aswat ...
