Stephen Moyes and Mike Sullivan report:

A SECRET dossier detailing plans for policing this summer’s London Olympics was left on a TRAIN.

A cop lost the file but a commuter found it and handed it to The Sun .  Got that? A commuter not named found a secret file and handed it to a tabloid newspaper accused of being in cahoots with the police .

The shocking security blunder could have provided terrorists planning an attack with invaluable data.

It still might have. If the commuter handed it to the Sun what’s to say they didn’t hand a copy to these terrorists? This commuter needs shaking down.

The dossier contained details that would have helped al-Qaeda terrorists mount a devastating attack on the Games in London this summer.

Why Al Qaeda? Why not the real IRA or some other group?

The dossier contains dates and details of pre-Olympics rehearsals, explains emergency “lock-down” procedures and sets out plans to avoid traffic congestion.

Why would Al-Qaeda attack Olympic rehearsals. And is traffic in London a big secret?
