FBI 'identifies Jihadi John'

The terrorist known as “jihadi John”, who murdered a British aid worker and two US hostages in Syria, has been identified by the security services ahead of an historic vote by MPs to authorise air strikes in Iraq.

The FBI announced that it has discovered the identity of the man, who speaks with a London accent, by working with “international partners” including MI5 and MI6.

The man was filmed beheading James Foley and Steven Sotloff, two US journalists, and David Haines, an aid worker who earlier this month became the first Briton to be murdered by Isil.

He is now threatening to kill Alan Henning, a second British hostage, despite desperate pleas from his family to spare his life.

The daughter of David Haines has called for Isil to be “eradicated” with a combination of air strikes and ground forces “if that’s what it takes”, while David Cameron has vowed to “hunt down” Mr Haines’ killers.

MPs are expected to vote in favour of Britain joining air strikes in Northern Iraq on Friday to ensure Isil is defeated and end the "barbaric acts" being carried out against religious minorities.

Michael Fallon, the Defence Secretary, said that British air strikes in Iraq will go on for the "long haul" for at least three or four years to ensure Isil is defeated.

However Air Chief Marshal Sir Michael Graydon, the former head of the RAF, warned that Britain’s air force will struggle to mount a sustained campaign because it has been cut down to the “bare bones”.

He said that the RAF “rock bottom” after years of cuts and sustaining air strikes against Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isil) fighters would be “quite a stretch”.

He told The Telegraph: “To sustain this operation is going to be quite a stretch. The lack of combat air craft is a major weakness in our make up. This has been raised time and time again and basically ignored. We really are at rock bottom.”

Six RAF Tornados have been stationed in Cyprus for the past six weeks and have been flying surveillance flights over northern Iraq.

The jets could begin dropping Paveway IV guided bombs and Brimstone missiles within hours of the vote, while Downing Street confirmed that soldiers will be deployed on the ground in “non-combat roles” to co-ordinate air strikes.

Both David Cameron, the Prime Minister, and Nick Clegg, the Deputy Prime Minister, have also raised the prospect of MPs returning for a second vote to authorise air strikes in Syria.

Senior military figures have suggested military action Iraq will be "meaningless" without further action in Syria because Isil does not recognise international borders.

However, it is likely to be opposed by a significant number of MPs amid concerns it would be illegal and that Syrian air defence systems could shoot British aircraft down.

Downing Street said that Britain also reserves the right to carry out rescue operations in the "event that British personnel require assistance", raising the prospect of the involvement of special forces.

It came as Haider al-Abadi, the new Iraqi Prime Minister, warned that Isil is plotting to carry out terrorist attacks on underground railways in Paris and the US.

In an interview with the House magazine, Mr Fallon said: "John Kerry [the US secretary of state] has estimated two to three years, that looks like a long haul to me.

"But we have to face up to this. This kind of extremism has been spreading, taking root in democracies. I was really struck at the Nato summit by countries as far apart as Norway and Australia concerned about returning fighters, about the threat from re-importing terrorism.

"We all have a very direct interest. Britain does above all, we’ve seen already terrorist attacks here, the London Tube, London buses, the murder of Lee Rigby, the attack on Glasgow airport, we’ve already been under attack from this kind of extremism and we have to deal with it."

It yesterday emerged that one of the United Arab Emirates pilots who has been taking a leading role in the bombing raids in Syria was a woman, Major Mariam al-Mansouri. She is the first female fighter pilot to serve for the UAE.

It also emerged that one of the Saudi Arabian pilots involved in the air strikes was a member of the royal family, Prince Khaled bin Salman

In England Anjem Choudary, the radical preacher, was one of nine men arrested by Scotland Yard officers as part of an investigation into Islamist terrorism.

The motion being voted on by MPs states there is a “clear legal basis that this provides for action in Iraq”, but adds that it does “not endorse air strikes in Syria”.

James Comey, the director of the FBI, on Thursday became the first official on either side of the Atlantic to claim to have identified Jihadi John.

"I believe that we have identified him, I’m not going to tell you who I believe it is," he said, according to NPR.

Asked if he would prioritise capturing the jihadist, he said: “We will do and expend the effort that I think the American people would want us to and expect us to.”

He refused to say whether the FBI believed the masked man actually carried out the murders of the three Westerners or if they were killed by someone else off-camera.

Aki Peritz, a former CIA officer who analysed execution videos during the Iraqi insurgency, told The Telegraph that the identification of Jihadi John would help intelligence agencies identify the man's "network of confederates" in the UK.

"The easy part was identifying the man in black. Now that intelligence services reportedly have a name to match, the hard part will be tracking him down and bringing him to justice," he said.

"Identifying him will allow both US and UK security services to begin to identify his network of confederates, perhaps finding new links back to the West.

"He's probably somewhere in Syria right now- since we're now bombing that country, his personal safety is not assured anymore.

"The importance is not taking out the man in black. It's about shutting down the whole network."



  1. If I were this fierce boogyman who the whole world is shaking in their boots about...what do I care if my face is covered? Why cover my face? Why hide behind a costume? What's the beef? Unless there is something to hide behind about; like being an american, or any other nationality besides muslim/arabic...

    This is a tell tell sign that it's not what they say it is.

  2. As I mentioned before....

    In Ukraine fascist regime of Kiev backed by EU NATO USA unholy trinity were beheading people, putting them in mass graves.... Chechenia war in the 90's Israel, US, UK NATO EU back terrorist who were beheading Russians.....

    Hellllloooooo do we feel and act in the same way????


    Why would he do that, has he been kicked into his ass by someone? You guess.

    ...... How about Cameron pushing for release of records of Black Boxes ....... Why would he do that, indeed?

  4. John

    I want to really hear sound logic.....if the content of Black Boxes released, many lives would be save and probably also lives of those who were decapitated ........guilty once would be in prisons.......

    It does not ring the bell?

  5. There seems to be a multi country agreement not to go public yet.
    Please, allow there are good Diplomatic reasons, but all will surface as truth does. Secrets always break free. Usually at the worst possible time.

    1. I hope Cameron worked out already plan how to celebrate 2017 return Palestine to Palestinians after 100 years of terror imposed on them ...... I mean inclusive confiscation of all Rottenchild's assets + plus inclusive confiscation of all Isra-hell assets world-wide

      Wipe them out, no mercy any more.......
