Suicide bomber files found in flat

The following report was the lead article in this week's Sunday Times, one of Britain’s biggest selling Sunday newspaper’s and supposedly a quality one at that.
“DOCUMENTS found inside a flat that was raided last week by police looking for terrorists show that two of the occupants had been trained by extremist Palestinian groups. They included a would-be suicide bomber who had fled to Britain.
The documents were found by Sunday Times reporters in two briefcases that had been left by police forensic teams which searched the house in Willesden Green, northwest London. Among the papers was a picture of a man dressed in military fatigues cradling an AK-47 assault rifle and letters written on notepaper headed “Al Quds Brigade”, a Middle East terror group.”

Now just think about that for a moment. Documents 'left' by police forensic teams while searching a terror suspects house are conveniently stumbled upon by Sunday Times reporters and become headline news. It almost sounds too good to be true and maybe it is.
Remember all those reports in our 'free press' about Saddam Hussein’s suspected Weapons of Mass Destruction? Well they effectively prepared public opinion for the invasion of Iraq. The fact that Saddam’s WMD have not been found is beside the point, at the time they provided a useful pretext for the invasion. Without it, public opinion may have prevented British participation in the Iraq invasion.
This story may be of a similar type.
It goes on to relate how papers and photos were found linked to the “Al Quds Brigade”, a terror group linked to Hamas.
So in one stroke we not only have an increased terror threat but the additional prospect of it being Palestinian in origin. The Zionists must be rubbing their hands together in glee because Britain now faces the same enemies as Israel in the “War on Terror”. Which automatically means that we should support Israel in its fight against Palestinian terror.
The article continues:
“The Metropolitan police refused to say yesterday why the documents had been left behind in their series of high-profile raids on Tuesday against suspected Al-Qaeda terrorists at addresses across Britain.”
And the Sunday Times refuses to speculate on the possibility that the papers were deliberately left for gullible journalists to find – or indeed that they may have been planted by British or even Israeli intelligence to provide just such a story.
This is indeed the measure of the modern press, where it may well be distributing disinformation on behalf of British or Israeli intelligence. And it does so without question, just as it did before the invasion of Iraq with endless stories and speculation about Iraq's WMD. So the billion-dollar question, overlooked by the Sunday Times is: what is the real purpose behind this story?
