Germaine Lindsay and a terrorist mastermind - information or disinformation?

20 July 2005

According to a report in the Independent:

A man widely reported to have slipped into Britain to 'mastermind' the London bombings was an innocent Pakistani who happened to have a similar name to a suspected al-Qa'ida leader...

A similar mix-up is understood to be behind the claims by US intelligence that Germaine Lindsay, 19, the bomber who carried out the King's Cross attack, was on a British watch list. This was because the "fourth" bomber was wrongly identified in the United States as Lindsay Jermaine - someone with a similar name to a terrorist suspect.
