QUOTE FROM GEORGE ORWELL'S NOVEL 'NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR'; Part2 Chapter5: "In
some ways she was far more acute than Winston, and far less susceptible to
Party propaganda. Once when he happened in
some connection to mention the war against Eurasia, she startled him by
saying casually that in her opinion the war was not happening. The rocket
bombs which fell daily on London were probably fired by the Government of
Oceania itself, 'just to keep people frightened'."
London is pretty much
the police state model for the rest of the UK. It has been a matter
of 'when', rather than 'if' a terrorist event (or series of events) would
Naturally, this event
will further 'justify' the ushering in of a police state integrating the
Nat. Database Register and ID Card bill in the UK... to keep us safe from
the dangerous terrorists.
Set up within hours of the
London attacks, this section is dedicated to analyse and dissect the various
accounts of events.

DETECTIVES investigating the 7 July bombings in London are trying to establish how one of the four-man gang involved in the attack managed to amass a personal fortune of £121,000 while working part-time in a chip shop. The revelation fuels speculation that the bomb gang received outside financial assistance to mount their attacks.

A noted terror expert has told the BBC that Mohammed Siddique Khan, the alleged ringleader of the 7/7 London bombings, was working for British intelligence agency MI5 as an informant at the time of the attacks. Charles Shoebridge is a 12-year veteran detective of the London Metropolitan Police, a former graduate of the Royal Military Academy at
Sandhurst, and now a broadcaster and writer on terrorism in the UK. Shoebridge
told the BBC Newshour program that from the evidence little else can be assumed other than that Khan was working for British intelligence.
bombers may have been tricked into setting off bombs: Police - BRITISH
police are considering the possibility that the four key suspects in the
recent London attacks may have been tricked into setting off their bombs

who set off the bombs were suicide bombers.
London bombers may have been tricked -
British police are considering the possibility that the four key suspects in last week's London attacks may have been tricked into setting off their bombs, a British newspaper has reported.
'Slow, gentle giant' who blew up the No 30 bus and killed 13 others -
Hasib Hussain was an unremarkable high school student. His tutors describe him as a "slow, gentle giant" who was "perfectly normal". In fact, he was so ordinary that – until two weeks ago – many of his teachers may have had difficulty remembering him at all. Now, however, he will be remembered as the suicide bomber who claimed 14 lives when he blew up the No 30 bus in London's Tavistock Square.
Egyptian Chemist Knew Two London Attackers -
CAIRO, Egypt -- An Egyptian chemist freed Tuesday after three weeks in custody for questioning about deadly bombings in London said he casually knew two of the attackers. He called one of them "very kind and very nice."
EVIDENCE OF PRIOR KNOWLEDGE
MI5 fingerprints all over the 'bombers')
Spies warned of Tube attack -
SPYMASTERS warned Tony Blair before the July 7 suicide bombings that Al-Qaeda was planning a “high priority” attack specifically aimed at the London Tube. A leaked four-page report by the Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC), which oversees all spying, is the first definitive evidence that the intelligence services expected terrorists to strike at the Underground. The disclosure will fuel critics’ suspicions that Blair decided to rule out a public inquiry into the bombings last week because it could expose intelligence failings at the highest level.
MI5 missed six chances to stop 7/7 bombings -
MI5 OFFICERS had to pass up several chances to thwart the 7 July suicide bombers because they lacked the necessary staff and resources, an official inquiry found yesterday. With greater resources, the Security Service would have had an "increased" chance of stopping the attacks that killed 56 people, the parliamentary intelligence and security committee
Revealed MI5 ruled London bombers were not a threat -
Two of the four suicide bombers who killed 52 people in the July 7 attacks were scrutinised by MI5 last year but were not considered to be a threat, The Independent has learnt. Shahzad
Tanweer, 22, who detonated a rucksack bomb on the Tube train at Aldgate, is believed to have been indirectly linked to an alleged plot to build a bomb in 2004. It has already been established that the suspected mastermind, Mohammad Sidique Khan, 30, had been known to security services.
FBI 'gave prior warning to Britain about 7/7 bomber' -
FURTHER evidence suggesting that British security forces were alerted in advance to the danger posed by the leader of the London suicide bombers emerged yesterday. Reports in the United States indicated American law enforcement officers had raised concerns with their British counterparts over Mohammad Sidique Khan, believed to have led the 7 July attacks. According to the New York Daily News, the FBI told British officials well before the bombings that Khan "was trouble" and should be "checked out".
'Bug' in car of 7/7 killer -
COPS probing the 7/7 bombings found a hi-tech tracking device in the ringleader’s car just days after the attacks, a senior security official claims. The bug, like those used by police, was allegedly discovered in a car belonging to Mohammed Siddique Khan, the Edgware Road bomber. It is suggested that Special Branch officers put it there during a surveillance operation aimed at Islamic extremists. The claim will fuel criticisms that police missed chances to foil the suicide attacks. An official report showed Khan, 30, came to the attention of MI5 several times. But he was seen only as a “peripheral” figure. The Met refused to comment on the surveillance claims.
Bombers 'tracked before July 7' -
All four July 7 London suicide bombers were tracked by intelligence services a year before the attacks, it was claimed today. Quoting unnamed police sources, the Mirror reported that field agents had Shehzad
Tanweer, Jermaine Lindsay, Hasib Hussain and Mohammed Sidique Khan on a list of 100 feared religious fanatics before the watch was called off because they failed to "fit the preconceived terrorist profile".
CIA 'warned leader was threat two years before 7/7 attacks' -
DEMANDS for an independent inquiry into the 7 July suicide attacks were stepped up last night, after claims that the CIA identified the leader of the bombers as a terrorist threat two years before the strikes on London. Mohammad Sidique Khan was banned from flying to America after the CIA discovered in 2003 that he was planning attacks on US cities, according to a new book. The claims are significant because MI5 has denied any previous knowledge of the threat the suicide bombers presented before the attacks.
Could MI5 have stopped the London bombings? -
...Should the intelligence agencies and police have known about the plot? MI5 argue that while it was disappointing that they did not prevent the 7 July attacks, they could not have done any more to prevent them. The agency insists that when they came across two of the bombers, Mohammad Sidique Khan and Shahzad
Tanweer, they were peripheral to the case of a separate bomb plot. MI5 says it had limited resources and had to prioritise its targeted suspects. While both official reports are expected to say that the intelligence and security services were not to blame for failing to prevent the bombings, they remain vulnerable to criticism.
IT expert: I worked with 7/7 bombers and warned police: Intelligence on bombers sent to detectives in 2003 -
A computer expert who worked alongside two of the July 7 bombers claims today that he tried to warn the police about their activities almost two years before the suicide attacks.
Bombers slipped through net of watching MI5 -
A lack of resources allowed the July 7 bombers to slip through the security net, according to two reports published yesterday, and police and the intelligence services are highly unlikely to be able to prevent all similar attacks in the future. Two of the four suicide bombers had come to the attention of the security service, MI5, time and again, yet the reports' authors concluded that there was no reason for the authorities to have known that they posed a threat.
7/7 bombers were under MI5 surveillance a year prior to attack -
British Intelligence, it seems had an inkling of the terrorist threat to Britain as much a year before the July 7 London bombings and the July 21 shadow bombings attack. A leaked “top secret” document in the Sunday Times said that Mohammad Siddique Khan and Shehzad
Tanweer, two of the London 7/7 bombers who visited Pakistan, were under surveillance a year before the attacks in London. One of the 21/7 bombers was even reported to be subjected to a short-term intelligence operation, it said.
7 July bomber 'filmed last year' -
London bomber Mohammed Sidique Khan featured in a surveillance operation by intelligence services last year, a BBC investigation suggests. Khan was secretly filmed and recorded speaking to a UK-based terror suspect, according to a well-placed source.
MI5 'let bomber slip through net' -
The leader of the four London suicide bombers who killed 52 people on July 7 had been under surveillance by MI5 last year, the BBC has claimed.
Saudis warned UK of London attacks -
Saudi Arabia officially warned Britain of an imminent terrorist attack on London just weeks ahead of the 7 July bombings after calls from one of
al-Qaeda's most wanted operatives were traced to an active cell in the United Kingdom.
CONTRARY: Al-Qaida claimed responsibility for London blasts -
(Part of the article): Israel was not warned about possible terror attacks in London before at least six blasts ripped through the city, Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom said Thursday. A Foreign Ministry official, speaking on condition of anonymity, had said earlier that British police warned the Israeli Embassy in London of possible terror attacks minutes before the first explosion. "There was no early information about terrorist attacks," Shalom told Israel Army Radio. "After the first explosion an order was given that no one move until things become clear. "

Brown plays the 7/7 card ahead of ID vote -
GORDON Brown was last night accused of exaggerating the case for identity cards, after suggesting that the government's planned scheme was justified by the London suicide bombings. Ahead of the Identity Card Bill's latest Commons test tonight, the Chancellor appeared to contradict colleagues, including Charles Clarke, the Home Secretary, by directly linking the controversial scheme to past attacks.

MPs back ban on glorifying terror -
Tony Blair's controversial plan for a new law to stop people "glorifying" terrorism has been backed by MPs. The House of Lords voted last month to remove the measure from the Terrorism Bill, but the Commons has now voted by 315 to 277 to reinstate the plan. Mr Blair said the vote was a "signal of strength" which could outlaw placards glorifying the bombers who attacked London last July.
US-style terror alerts for UK: MPs to recommend clearer public warnings in wake of London bombings -
A cross-party committee investigating the background to the July 7 bombings is expected to recommend a transparent official public warning system for the threat posed by terrorist attacks. It would be similar to the kind that has proved controversial in America.
Gordon Brown's speech on terrorism - Full text of the speech given by the chancellor to the Royal United Services Institute in London -
"...While we stood as one on and after July 7 there is a danger that in the aftermath of a terrorist incident as time passes, people's sense of the scale of the threat dims, that people's guard starts to drop, their vigilance lessens and their commitment to the tough and necessary security measures - all too clear on the morning after - weakens. And there is also a danger that we fail to stand back and reflect and to make the long-term cool headed assessment we need to have about the likely repetition of such events and to decide what, for the long term, needs to be done to strengthen our security..."
Terrorism Act comes into force -
The government's controversial Terrorism Act comes into force today, outlawing the glorification of terrorism and paving the way for the detention of terror suspects for 28 days without charge. The bill,
introduced in response to the July 7 bombings, was opposed by both the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats, and saw Tony Blair's first Commons defeat since coming to power, when Labour rebels overturned a government clause allowing 90 days detention.
to consider ID card to fight terrorism - SYDNEY (Reuters) -
Australia should consider introducing a national identity card in the
wake of the London bombings and the rise in global terrorism, Prime
Minister John Howard said on Friday. Australia last debated a
national ID card, called the Australia Card, in 1987. Howard, then in
opposition, opposed the card, but now says times have changed.

The rules would apply to a large range of equipment including land lines and mobile telephones, text messages, e-mails and internet protocols. EU interior ministers agreed to this in principle at an emergency meeting just after the London bombings.
NY commuters face random searches -
Passengers using the New York subway are to be subject to random searches in a new security measure designed to reduce the threat of terrorist attacks. The city's mayor, Michael Bloomberg, announced the move hours after the latest bombings in London.

Federal Government must pass anti-terrorist laws similar to those being

'WE WILL HOLD FIRM'
(Like rods 'held firm' together in the Fasci symbol)
This phrase appeared on the front of the UK's Daily Mirror. Perhaps a 'Freudian Slip' (I digress), but you can bet that the London bombings
will continue to be used to push us further into a Fascistic society (more so than we are already), not just in the UK, but globally.
It is important to point out that I aren't merely using the word 'Fascistic' at random. This is the exact meaning, to get the many all tied together (with whatever pretext) and within that enslaved structure you can rule over them with an 'Axe head' symbolic of authoritarian law. Hence the term Axis Power used during WW2.

Says 7/7 Bombs Detonated By Mobile Phones - New York police insist they were right to release details of the bombs that killed 52 people in London, even though they had not been vetted by UK police.
UNDER THE TRAIN? - "I was in tube bomb carriage - and
survived" - Except from the article: ..."The policeman said
'mind that hole, that's where the bomb was'. The metal was pushed
upwards as if the bomb was underneath the train. They seem to think the
bomb was left in a bag, but I don't remember anybody being where the
bomb was, or any bag," he said.
How does a bomb inside the carriage make the floor shoot inwards? -
I walked through to the end and saw the buckled door of the next carriage, which is where the bomb had gone off. A man said: "You mustn't go in." I could hear people screaming, so I knew I had to see what I could do. I crawled through the interconnecting door, which had blood on the glass. One woman sitting on the seat was twisted round. She was trapped and there wasn't much left of her leg. The chap next to her had lost his leg and there was a woman to their left who was on her back trapped in the metal, which had twisted up through the middle of the carriage. The roof was still on, but the lining of the carriage had been blown off. The sides had also come off and there was a big hole in the floor. A guy was writhing around on a big sheet of metal a bit further up.

No seriously, it is time to apply logic to these events. Please do not hand me the nonsense about these people being “killers” who do not apply logic. You do not become the number one terrorist organization without having some logic, no? We are expected to swallow that these people were smart enough to circumvent our billion dollar intelligence and air defense systems with box cutters, but they cannot play coherent cause-effect scenarios out in their mind prior to carrying out terrorist activities?

Bombings: An Independent Inquiry
by Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed
At first, the police were
sure that the 7/7 bombers used weapons-grade plastic explosives and
sophisticated timers. Two weeks later, they changed their minds - the bombs
were home-made and were detonated manually. Since then the official account
has changed repeatedly and remains riddled with anomalies and confusion.
The government is resisting
calls for a full inquiry and has instead presented a 'narrative' written by
a civil servant. This supposedly defiinitive account has already collapsed
in the face of public scrutiny and leaks from the security services.
As Ahmed demonstrates the
attacks can only be fully understood in the ight of extensive co-operation
between the Islamist extremists and Western Intelligence in Central Asia.
The London bombings, much like the attacks on New York in 2001, were a
widely predicted consequence of the West's global strategy. If we do face a
future of terrorism we should at least understand the extent to which our
governments have accepted this as the price of business as usual. Looking
beyond the platitudes and deceptions of the war on terror, Nafeez asks what
exactly we mean by the national interest and whether we are really well
served by policies that promote terror abroad and tolerate extremism at

Diversion: 7/7 London Bombings
Documentary - On the 7th of
July 2005 London was hit by a series of explosions. You probably think
you know what happened that day. But you don’t. The police have,
from the onset of their investigation, chosen to withhold from the
public almost every bit of evidence they claim to have and have
provably lied about several aspects of the London Bombings. The
mainstream news has willfully spread false, unsubstantiated and
unverifiable information, while choosing to completely ignore the
numerous inconsistencies and discrepancies in the official story. The
government has finally, after a year, presented us with their official
‘narrative’ concerning the event. Within hours it was shown to
contain numerous errors, a fact since admitted by the Home Secretary
John Reid. They have continuously rejected calls for a full,
independent public inquiry. Tony Blair himself described such an
inquiry as a ‘ludicrous diversion’. What don’t they want us to

- MI6 illegally paid tens of
thousands of pounds to Al Qaeda to stage a coup in Libya,
without realising the irresponsibility of its actions.
- MI5 failed to stop four major

of reliable intelligence.
- MI5 illegally investigated

- MI5 and MI6 let
a known Libyan terrorist into Britain. They failed to recruit
him and allowed him to set up a terrorist network in this
- MI5 withheld evidence about the
innocence of two Palestinians at their trial for the bombing of
the Israeli Embassy in London in 1994. One document indicated it
might be an ‘inside job’.
