This news is making the rounds again. Yet, it seems to me that this was covered long ago at my big tech censored blog…. Hmmmmmmm.
I’ll include the now censored report from 2015 below- with the original url
Some media outlets are claiming this individual was a “double agent”- I don’t think so.

“A spy working for Canadian intelligence trafficked Shamima Begum and two other British schoolgirls into Islamic State group-controlled areas of Syria, the BBC has (reported) claimed.
Mohammed Al Rasheed helped Begum, then 15, Kadiza Sultana, then 16, and Amira Abase, then 16, travel from Istanbul bus station to the Syrian border in 2015, where they entered territories controlled by the extremist group.
Could anyone seriously believe this CSIS operative trafficked these individuals without assistance from their friendly intelligence associates and/or other groups tied to western intelligence?
Al Rasheed said he assisted other British men, women, and children enter Syria but only to pass this information, along with other intelligence on IS, on to the Canadian embassy in Jordan.”
A senior intelligence agent confirmed to the BBC that Al Rasheed was passing information about IS in Syria on to Canadian intelligence while smuggling people into the war zone.
The revelation could be a key part of Begum’s efforts to have her British citizenship reinstated and return to the UK, after spending years in a harrowing conditions at a detention camp in Syria.
Begum had her British citizenship removed by then Home Secretary Sajid Javid in 2019 on grounds of national security due to her alleged role in IS, rendering her stateless and stranded in Syria.
Information that she was a victim of trafficking as a minor would be “one of the main arguments” in Begum’s challenge of the UK government’s decision to take away her passport during a legal hearing in November, Tasnime Akunjee, a lawyer for her family told the BBC.
2015 report from big tech censored blog-
Yup, more then 7 years ago
Interesting too is the fact it was Turkey that outed the Canadian Intelligence Operative- In case anyone was unaware.
Even then Turkey was making clear their whipping boy status was over!
