A FORMER British spy has sparked outrage after claiming the Paris terror attacks were an “inside job” and not carried out by Islamic State (ISIS).
He then leaked a series of details about MI5 operations, including claims MI6 was involved in a February 1996 failed assassination of former Libyan dictator Colonel Gaddafi.
He also claimed the 1993 Bishopsgate and 1994 Israeli Embassy bombings were known to the intelligence services in advance of being carried out and could have been prevented.
After leaking details to the Mail on Sunday in 1997, he fled to Utrecht in the Netherlands and later France, where he spent two years from 1998 to 2000 living in Boulevard Voltaire, where the Bataclan Theatre – the scene of the worst atrocity of the day took place, according to his video.
He said: “I think there is some dark design in the pattern of the attacks that took place in Paris on Friday, November 13.

He said: “Did they deliberately plan to hit those places to map out over Parsi a cross that would pass over where I used to live…to scare me.
