London bomber says invasion, torture motivated him

Today AlJazeera will air a clip from al-Qaida in which one of the London bombers, Muhammad Sadiq Khan, explains his reasons for attack as being the invasion of Iraq, and abuses in the war. He is quoted as naming torture specifically, saying
Your democratically elected governments continue to perpetuate atrocities against my people all over the world.

Your support for them makes you directly responsible ... until we feel security, you will be our targets. Until you stop the bombing, gassing, imprisonment and torture of my people, we will not stop.
