(London Telegraph) A white Muslim convert who labelled British troops “murderers” planned a terrorist attack on Wootton Bassett and the intelligence agencies.
Richard Dart, along with Jahangir Alom, a former police community support officer, and a third man, Imran Mahmood, wanted to stage an atrocity in the Wiltshire town famed for the crowds that lined its streets during the repatriation of dead soldiers.
They also discussed targeting “heads” of MI5 and MI6.
Dart, 29, a former BBC security guard and the son of Dorset teachers, was radicalised by the hate cleric Anjem Choudary. He was the subject of an award-winning BBC documentary in 2011, My Brother the Islamist, filmed by his stepbrother.
In one scene, during a demonstration, he accuses soldiers returning from Afghanistan of being “murderers” and calls for an Islamic state in Britain.
