About a month before the July 7 bombings in London, British authorities balked at giving U.S. officials permission to apprehend a man now believed to have ties to the bombers, according to sources familiar with the investigation.

I think this is the equivalent of the FBI not searching Zacarios Moussaoui's laptop computer before 9/11. If Aswat had been picked up maybe this plot would have been uncovered.
