Just a few data points to look at here. One, according to WikiLeaks, a Beeb phone number turned up over and over again in captured al Qaeda documents. The Beeb is doing what it does best — it’s not coming clean on who the number belongs to or why the terrorists had it.
“The number is associated with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).” Analysis by The Daily Telegraph suggests the number is one for Bush House, home of the BBC World Service.
The assessment continues that US forces uncovered many “extremist links” to this number, suggesting that extremists could have made contact with BBC employees who were sympathetic to extremists or had information on “ACM [anti-Coalition Militia] operations.”
