The US g바카라overnment claims that it has “taped every last one of these terrorists”, saying they could prove that the 9/11 attacks were the work of al-Qaida.
The US government has long been able to keep secret the names of terrorism suspects, or reveal them after arrest.
But new disclosures에그 벳 about the secret tapes have forced it to re-think its stance.
The government told Al Jazeera last night it had “taped every last one of these terrorists”, which they say was the secret to protecting the United States against its enemies.
Last week it announced that it had destroyed all but four tapes on which the name of every suspect had been recorded, claiming they were illegal to release, although the CIA has acknowledged it did so.
But it insisted the number of terrorism suspects on its list could increase from six to more than 50 this year.
Al Jazeera reporter Peter Greste was with the US special for이천출장안마ce based in Britain known as “Highway 1” that stormed the al-Qaida compound on 7 September 2001.
He reported how British troops were confronted with al-Qaida-linked militants inside an office building.
The raid was called off after the British tried unsuccessfully to disarm them.
Since then, they have had access to two tapes they claim were secretly released by the FBI.
It has been confirmed to Al Jazeera by an unnamed source familiar with the tapes that these were not destroyed and that three of the tapes were “recovered”.
Al-Qaedha has claimed they will shed light on the motives of many terrorist groups.
This is not the first time al-Qaedha has claimed to have captured an American, claiming to have done so in 2008.
But this time the claim was backed by the British government.
Al Jazeera’s Peter Greste spoke with a spokesman for the UK government, who responded that: “We can confirm the UK intelligence agency obtained the tapes in 2008.
“They were obtained by the British military, under international surveillance at the time and have subsequently been destroyed.”
But Mr Greste pointed out: “These tapes are of people we have not captured – a small, but significant number of people who may now be the targets of al-Qaedha.”
