New Audio: 'Jihadi John' Describes Alleged MI-5 Encounter

Activist group releases clip of voice that would come to haunt U.S. officials.

The activist group CAGE posted online a two-minute recording of Mohammed Emwazi describing what he claims was a run-in with an agent from Britain's MI-5, the U.K. equivalent to the FBI.

"While I'm packing my bags, this is while I'm packing some of my stuff, I said, 'Yea, go on, ask,' and he said, 'No, no, I'd like you to sit, face-to-face and we ask you these questions,' and I said, 'Wow, these must be some serious questions, let's get down to it,' I said," the 2009 recording says. "We sat down face-to-face and he looked at me and said, 'Mohammed,' 'Yes?' 'What do you think of 7/7?' I said, 'Man, what, innocent people have died, you know, what do you think? I think this is extremism.'"

7/7 refers refers to a coordinated terrorist attack on July 7, 2005 that killed dozens in London. The man identified in the recordings as Emwazi also says he's asked about 9/11.

"And I told him, 'This is a wrong thing. What happened was wrong, you know, what do you want me to say? If I have opportunities to make lives come back, I'd make those lives come back. I think what happened in wrong,'" the recording says.

In each of those videos, the masked man since identified as Emwazi gives an apparently digitally-altered monologue, at times directly addressing President Obama, before allegedly murdering civilian hostages.
