FBI Responds to Report on London Bomber

Washington, 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.

International 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.
