British intelligence identifies London rapper as connected to Foley beheading

According to USA Today, British Intelligence (M15 and M16) has identified a London rapper named Abdel-Majed Bary, 24, as the man speaking in the video showing kidnapped American journalist James Foley being beheaded.  The link for the story by Orin Dorell, on p 5A of the Wednesday paper, is here

The idea that a western musician was involved is shocking, but the suspect’s father has an interesting history.  Adel Abdul Bary has spent years in Egyptian prisons, sought and got asylum in Britain, and then was extradited to the US for the two 1998 attacks on US embassies in Africa.
