Police may let Muslims see terrorism intelligence

Guardian reporteed The police are considering a proposal to let selected British Muslims examine the intelligence used to mount anti-terrorism raids before they take place, the Guardian has learned.

If they do anything this stupid, it will mean that the police have no intelligence themselves.
The proposal will be considered as part of a review of the raid in Forest Gate, east London, a fortnight ago when 250 officers stormed a family house searching for a chemical weapon which was not found. One man was shot and police have apologised for the "hurt" caused by the raid which has further damaged strained relations with the local community.
If they screwed up on the chemical weapons raid, then find some other way of handling the matter than turning intelligence over to the Muslims.
The review began this week and is expected to be completed before the end of the month.
