British Spies Refused to Kill Al Qaeda Leader

Didn't want to break the law


A Danish informant said that the British spy agency MI6 allegedly refused to kill Al Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki because it was against the law.

Morten Storm, a former biker who was hired by MI6 to infiltrate Al Qaeda, converted to Islam and dabbled with radical Islamism before turning into a spy for Western governments.
