Two years ago, a man named Mohammed Naeem Noor Khan was captured by Pakistani authorities. He was an Al Qaeda operative responsible for planning an attack on the London Underground and other attacks. On his laptop, which was recovered by intelligence officials, he had information about the plans, and about Al Qaeda operatives in London. The intelligence officials got him to agree to send info to his fellow terrorists so they could be captured, but before he could do so, Tom Ridge leaked his name to the media to justify their raising the terror alert level. Kahn’s fellow operatives were able to evade capture due to the leak. They are now suspected of being some of the same men who planned or carried out last week’s bombing in London.
