Hassan Butt’s deception exposed
Channel 4 News has exposed the deception perpetrated by Hassan Butt, a one-time loudmouth with al-Muhajiroun, who has supposedly turned tail and written a book with Shiv Malik about his “exploits” as a militant Islamist. However, police have now released extracts from the interviews he gave since he was arrested last month while trying to fly to Pakistan. Most significantly, he told police that the stabbing he received in Manchester was in fact arranged by him, so that Shiv Malik would believe him. He also said he had never met anyone from al-Qa’ida or who even claimed to be from al-Qa’ida, and the police believed him and let him go. Amusing for the interview with Shiv himself towards the end. Video is after the fold. (Hat tip: MPACUK.)
