INTERESTING : New MI5 boss is top "expert" on Al-Qaeda!?
"has tracked Al-Qaeda’s activities in Britain since the organisation first emerged as a threat to this country",
"Evans is a career spy with a background in fighting terror. He served as head of G branch, MI5’s international terrorism section, making him the agency’s then supremo in dealing with the emerging Al-Qaeda threat. Before that he served as a senior officer in Northern Ireland, helping to spearhead the fight against the IRA."
Evans wouldn't have known everything that EMB would hve known, but the inverse should be true. Maybe Evans knows something about the Covenant of Security?
