UK spies face questions about failure to stop 'Jihadi John'
LONDON - A former head of Britain's National Counterterrorism Security Office says police and intelligence agencies lack the resources to monitor a growing number of terror suspects.
Chris Phillips says the fact that a young Londoner can travel to Syria and become the masked militant known as "Jihadi John" shows that current control systems are not working and the number of people being radicalized via the Internet is increasing.
Officials say "Jihadi John" is Mohammed Emwazi, who's in several beheading videos. The first adult pictures of the man were released on Friday, taken from his University of Westminster student record. It is believed he became an extremist while studying computer science at the university.
