Whom did they tell? Did the U.S. officials involved notify the Swedes? If not, why not? Why was Taimour Abdulwahab still traveling around freely and able to engage in a jihad mass-murder plot?
“‘Abdulwahab was trained in Iraq,'” by Tommie Ullman for Stockholm News, January 7:
The Arabic Tv-channel al-Arabyia claims that the Iraqi security service got information about Taimour Abdulwahab two month before he blow up himself in Stockholm. Abdulwahab had then already been trained in Mosul, north Iraq.
Abdulwahab was in Mosul for three month, were he learnt how to make explosives. This is said to al-Arabya by the Iraqi counter terrorism authority.
The Iraqis informed USA about Abdulwahab states the tv-channel. Captured Al-quaida fighters had said that targets in USA or Europe were to be attacked by the end of December. The Swedish security service, SÃ¤po, does not want to comment on whether or not the information reached them.
