London Attackers Appeared In Channel 4 Documentary ( Khuram Shazad Butt and Rachid Redouane (confirmed))
One of the London attackers appeared in the Channel 4 documentary, "The Jihadist Next Door," according to the Daily Mail. The article included this image:
Although the Daily Mail blurred all pictures and avoided naming him, it did not take much to figure out who he was. I found another video of the same incident at Youtube. If you look at the picture above, you can see another jihadist recording as well. This video I found appears to be his. The man the Daily Mail claims is one of the attackers can be see arguing with police at the 5 second mark:
He is also seen in this related video and he is identified at the 20 second mark by name as Mohammed Shamsuddin:
A little Googling pulled up several articles about. It appears Mr. Shamsuddin lived off disability benefits in the UK and enjoyed beheading videos over lunch. What is most disturbing is that Shamsuddin was quite open with his extreme radical beliefs, but, apparently it was too politically incorrect to hold him accountable.
Over the next few days, the rest may or may not be identified. The UK government is trying to keep the names of these terrorists out of the media. And the media is complicit, as the Daily Mail, The Sun, and The Mirror have done several stories about at least this one attacker.
I may update as more information comes out, but for now, you can see what we are dealing with, not only with the jihadists, but also with the media and Western leadership.
Update by Howie 06/05/14 13:00 cdt: We do know he's in this video and is an associate of Abu Haleema (just google him he's a notorious jerk).
According to CNN the names will be released today. So stay tuned.
Update by Howie: Two attackers identified. Mohammad Shamsuddin and Siddhartha Dhar were main characters in the documentary. But the attacker is another who appeared Khuram Shazad Butt.
This is Mohammed Shamsuddin. Still no confirmation on his either way. But its is reported they UK is looking for more information. They would have plenty on Mohammed Shamsuddin though, he is a major figure in the documentary.
Neighbors say he was the attacker who wore the fake suicide vest during the vehicle and stabbing attack that killed seven people in London on Saturday night. The Islamic State’s Amaq News Agency posted a message on Telegram on Sunday claiming that the attack was carried out by ISIS fighters.
The man was a member of Al Muhajiroun, a small group of men led by Anjem Choudary and Siddartha Dhar who openly preached for the need for Sharia law.
