British intelligence deliberately overplayed IRA Olympic threat

The British Government deliberately overplayed the threat of a dissident IRA attack on London ahead of the Olympics, according to a leading security source.

The source, on the frontline of counter-terrorism for over 30 years, told The Irish Post that British intelligence services know dissident Republicans are incapable of mounting attacks on mainland Britain, but deliberately over-rated their capabilities in a series of official leaks ahead of London 2012.

The move was intended to create a heightened sense of public awareness during the Games, and follows similar erroneous leaks to leading British daily’s in 2011 – then refuted by The Irish Post.
