  • Counter-terrorist chief exposes top-secret documents

    Britain's top counter-terrorism officer has quit after admitting he could have jeopardised an operation which aimed to thwart a possible al-Qaeda terror plot.

    Assistant Commissioner Bob Quick resigned after he was photographed displaying a secret document as he arrived at Downing Street on Wednesday.



    Raids in north-west England, in which 12 men were arrested, had to be carried out early because of the blunder.

    The memo, marked "secret", carried an outline briefing on an ongoing counter-terror operation.

    It contained the names of several senior officers, locations and details about the nature of the overseas threat.

    The arrests were to be carried out at 02:00 this (Thursday) morning, instead they had to happen yesterday afternoon. The suspects were arrested while at university or in public, rather than in their homes.

    "The bit I don't understand is, why on earth a document like this is not locked in a briefcase as a matter of routine? I'd have just thought it would be blindingly obvious."
    Your thoughts?

      That's a pretty serious blunder for a person that's been in the game for a while. It's a good example of the trouble that complacency can get you into.

            Indeed.

            The British government is doing a good job of leaking their secret material right now.

                He does have a plastic folder case in that stack he's holding. Why couldn't he just place the document in there first before getting out of the car?
