News of the World blows anti-terror operation?

Well the News of the Screws certainly has a big splash this morning reporting that an Al-Qaeda sleeper cell are inside the Metropolitan Police and are being watched by MI5. The Screws says that it has the names of two of the men, but it doesn't name the saying,
Now spooks are watching the four suspects - who work at different police stations around London - around the clock while searching for the vital evidence needed to make arrests.
Surely that should be spooks were watching them because now any operation has been completely blown and the suspects will stop doing whatever it was they might have been doing?

I guess even the 'NotW' writers realise no-one actually reads the thing... ;)

Or alternatively the Security Services / Police had absolutely no chance of a prosecution and got the NoTW to publish the story to disrupt whatever it is they think is going on.

Nothing sells papers like Muslim nutter stories. Well maybe Madeline stories.

Did anything ever happen to that Hizb ut-Tahrir bod who was working IN THE IT DEPARTMENT OF THE HOME OFFICE?

I don't think the News of the World is stupid enough to put an ongoing investigation at risk. These stories come out for a reason, possibly to put the wind up these suspects to see how they react?
