Item 1: Mohamed Guerbouzi, an Al Queda commander, is being sought by British authorities in connection with the bombings. Guerbouzi had been sought in connection with numerous bombings including attacks in Morocco and the Al Queda Madrid bombings. He was living in England for over a decade and was easily tracked down by a newspaper despite an international arrest warrant, and best of all was living off his wife's public assistance checks.
Item 2: Britain has welcomed in and protected terrorists. Taliban and Al Queda fighters returning to England were welcomed back rather than detained or barred from the country. Egyptian Islamic terrorists received asylum status. Israel's wanted terrorists who holed up in the Church of the Nativity were welcomed into the UK as well and then unsupervised and allowed to leave the country. Top terrorist sheiks like Hamza and Quatada also operate out of the UK.
Item 3: The UK has longstanding ties to appeasing terrorism and terrorists. Blair has been the dominant force in pushing Bush over a Palestinian state. The British have squarely backed Palestinian terrorists and proceeded to even turn against the War on Terror. Palestinian terrorists have been welcome in London. Blair met and honored Syria's Assad who sponsors a number of terrorist groups. British suicide bombers struck Mike's Place and England still did nothing. British Imams and Sheiks have even recruited terrorists for suicide bombings in Israel but the British did not act feeling secure that it couldn't possibly affect them; well now it has.
