JUST IN: FBI’s Warning to UK In Early January…

A police officer guards the entrance to a street in the Moss Side area of Manchester on May 28, 2017 during an operation. A British minister said Sunday members of suicide bomber Salman Abedi's network could still be a large, as thousands defied the terror threat to take part in an annual half marathon. As runners pounded the streets of the northwestern English city, police arrested a 25-year-old man in the eastern Old Trafford area, bringing the number now detained on UK soil in connection with the attack to 12. / AFP PHOTO / JOHN SUPER (Photo credit should read JOHN SUPER/AFP/Getty Images)

The FBI warned UK security chiefs back in January that Salman Abedi was planning an attack in Britain according to reports.

From The Daily Mail:

According to a security source, the FBI told MI5 that Abedi was part of a North African Islamic State cell plotting to strike a political target in the UK.

The information came from a US investigation into Abedi and his links to terrorist groups in Libya.

The Mail on Sunday has also been told that US security services put him on a terror watch list – used by agents to identify key suspects – in 2016.

This newly released information puts pressure on the British intelligence community to provide answers as to why they didn’t feel Abedi was a significant threat, and if the attack could have been prevented.

The source told The Mail on Sunday: ‘In early 2017 the FBI told MI5 that Abedi belonged to a North African terror gang based in Manchester, which was looking for a political target in this country.

The information came from the interception of his communications by US federal agents, who had been investigating Abedi since the middle of 2016, and from information unearthed in Libya, where his family was linked to terrorist groups.

‘Following this US tip-off, Abedi and other members of the gang were scrutinised by MI5. It was thought at the time that Abedi was planning to assassinate a political figure.

‘But nothing came of this investigation and, tragically, he slipped down the pecking order of targets.’

Last night, The Mail on Sunday put the claim to the FBI but a bureau spokesman declined to comment, while UK security sources did not confirm the specific claim about the tip-off.

Another thing I have always imagined is that computers have become something that each household must have for most reasons.

An innovative way to complete these tasks is to use a laptop computer. These desktops are mobile, small, powerful and portable.
