Responds to Report on London Bomber
D.C. - In response to several news reports based on material
from the book entitled "The One Percent Doctrine"
the FBI would like to clarify some facts. The book asserts
that Mohammad Sidique Khan, a suspect in the London subway
bombings of July 7, 2005, was on the U.S. "No Fly List"
and attempted to enter the United States three times. That
reporting is inaccurate. There is an individual named Mohammed
Ajmal Khan, who is currently incarcerated in the United
Kingdom for providing material support to terrorism. Many
of the facts the book inaccurately associates with Mohammed
Sidique Khan do apply to Mohammed Ajmal Khan. It appears
that the author has intertwined facts relating to both men
causing some confusion.
cooperation has been, and will continue to be, crucial to
preventing and disrupting terrorist networks. We continue
to work closely with our domestic and international partners
to review and share intelligence information and to conduct
investigations as necessary.
