“Four police officers in Britain's top force are reportedly under close secret service surveillance after being identified as Al Qaeda spies, it emerged today.”

Gee let’s not tip ‘em off . . .

Didn’t the New York Times do something like this?

Is there a media wish to get hit,
(because the chances of it being them are slight
and the headlines would sell newspapers)?

My guess is this is a simply a “bell box” story though the worrying thing is it could also be further evidence of the institutionalised racism within the British police.

No, I’m saying that it’s likely to be a bell box story that just happens to hand ammunition to those who’d like to keep ethnic minorities out of the Police service.
