Wilileaks show BBC may have been part of al-Qaida's propaganda network

A phone number of someone at the BBC was found in phone books and programmed into the mobile phones of a number of militants seized by the Americans. 
The number is believed believed to be based at Bush House, the headquarters of the BBC World Service...
The US assessment file said forces had uncovered many ‘extremist links’ to the BBC number – indicating that extremists could have made contacts with employees at the broadcaster who were sympathetic to extremists or had information on ‘ACM’ (anti-Coalition militia) activities.
I'm surprised a number at The Toronto Star hasn't turned up there too.
