MI5 TO FACE QUESTIONS OVER WOOLWICH TERRORISTS WHO MURDERED LEE RIGBY – Michael Adebolajo, 29, and Michael Adebowale, 22 were yesterday finally convicted of the murder of Lee Rigby after a four week trial at the Old Bailey.
It took the jury just 90 minutes to deliberate in which a unanimous ‘Guilty’ verdict was handed out. It is likely the pair will now spend the remainder of their lives behind bars.
As a result of the trial and the information that it revealed, MI5 are now expected to face a hearing by the Parliament’s intelligence and security committee and its chairman, Sir Malcolm Rifkind, who has stated that ‘serious questions need answering’.
According to details given at the trial, MI5 had been attempting to recruit Michael Adebolajo to become an informant just three months before he and Michael Adebowale murdered Lee Rigby.
Further details revealed that MI5 had Michael Adebolajo under surveillance for 10 years and he was even arrested back in 2010 with other Al Qaeda followers in Kenya.

As a society we can never accept murder as a way to resolve our differences, but when it comes to terrorist related murders these often go well beyond a person being murdered out of rage, jealousy or any other manner of defence that lawyers might concoct.
For what Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale did on that awful day was not only an act of cowardice but one so heinous that there can be no forgiveness and no sane person could ever justify the taking of a life in such a manner.
MI5 is about to be dragged through the mud; we’ve already read a number of readers comments on this issue and most are accusing MI5 of bungling the operation, few even think that there is little or no real intelligence in any of our security services.

However, with simple research it is clear that our security services do a remarkable job in uncovering, tracking and most often preventing acts of terrorism.
Did MI5 fail Lee Rigby? It would be easy to just say yes, hang those responsible out to dry, and then move on. The trouble with this scenario is that we will only move on until the next Lee Rigby is murdered and once again there will be public outrage and almost certainly condemnation of our security services.
As we have seen in this particular case MI5 attempted to recruit Michael Adebolajo as an informant in the hope to get deeper inside the terrorist cell and effectively prevent all those within from carrying out acts of terrorism within Britain and indeed on an international scale.
Did MI5 fail? Unquestionably yes, but the public needs to open its eyes for whilst the failure resulted in the death of one of our troops, who we admire so much for all the sacrifices they give in order to keep us safe, there are hundreds of other instances where MI5 have prevented mass killings.
In our view we, that’s us the British public, are partly culpable for the death of Lee Rigby for we have allowed liberalism to indoctrinate us in pretty much the same way those Jihadist terrorists are indoctrinated with the ideology of murdering innocent people.
Our modern ideology is that we should show humanity even in the darkest of hours against our adversaries which has led terrorists to see this as a weakness, as a way to infiltrate our society and finally as a way of murdering the innocent without any consequence.
It could be argued that there is a consequence in that both Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale will probably die behind bars; that is unless Human Rights Lawyers are able to argue a defence against such inhumane treatment in which they are likely to once again walk the streets of Britain.
MI5’s job is to gather intelligence, infiltrate and prevent. Their job is not about James Bond running around dishing out justice and capping criminals at every given opportunity.
Recently we witnessed the trial and imprisonment of Sergeant Alexander Blackman for killing a wounded Taliban insurgent. His trial and indeed incarceration is little more than testament to the farcical way in which Britain now perceives justice.
Ask Michael Adebolajo why he murdered Lee Rigby and he will tell you that he is a soldier of Islam and that there is a Holy War against the infidel. Maybe we haven’t really woken up to the fact that we are at war; which is incredulous considering our Government continuously tells us how they are tackling the ‘war on terror’.
We all want peace but in regards to terrorists, the only way peace can be achieved are not only to suppress them but to make them fearful.
It might sound like a contradiction of terms but currently Islamic fundamentalists are laughing in our faces, for they have no fear of reprisals.
Cast your minds back to just days after Lee Rigby’s murder and note how the likes of the known hate preacher and supporter of terrorist activities Anjem Choudary was allowed airtime on national television in order to commend Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale for their actions. Does that appear to be a person or indeed a member of a terrorist organisation that fears British justice?
We constantly talk about the war on terror but it is clear the war is one sided; that is Islamic terrorists murder innocent people and in the ideology of liberal political correctness we stand back and do nothing.
All of our security services, including MI5, the police and armed forces are bound by a code of liberal conduct which is preventing the protection of British citizens.
It is long overdue that we took the war on terror to the terrorists and instead of attempting to recruit, cajole and engage in dialogue it’s time to hunt them down and remove them from society permanently; such an action could including killing known terrorists or rounding them up, stripping them of their rights to live in Britain and systematically deporting them.
We could of course continue capturing the likes of Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale and imprisoning them at a vast cost to the taxpayer or simply demand that our Government change our liberal laws that effectively allows the likes of Anjem Choudary to promote murder and Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale to carry it out.
It is most likely that over the pursing months many senior civil servants at MI5 are going to be severely embarrassed, but we wonder if any of them will have the spine to stand up and tell the inquisition that their failings are a direct result of the liberal laws Government has created which ultimately prevents reciprocity.
