London bombs

Friday 8th July 2005

The first question as ever has to be "who benefits".

My immediate reaction to yesterday is that it was a false flag operation carried out by the Americans and / or Israelis.

If your reaction to that is that there's no proof, I would have to agree with you (though of course there's no proof of the "obvious" explanation that is in all the headlines this morning).

But if your reaction is that what I'm suggesting is impossible or preposterous, then I would have to tell you that you simply haven't been paying attention. Have you read about P2OG? Have you read the overwhelming evidence that the attacks in America on September 11th 2001 were not what they seemed?

There are two strange things about yesterday that have been noted so far.

Most of the early reports of bombs said that there were six bombs, but it later turned out that there were only four explosions. However from this Guardian report:

Police denied that they had recovered any unexploded devices. But a source told The Guardian that three controlled explosions had been carried out on "suspect devices".

Furthermore Vincent Cannistraro, the former head of the CIA's counter-terrorism centre, told The Guardian that "two unexploded bombs" were recovered as well as "mechanical timing devices".

Now if there really were six bombs, two of which failed to explode, and if the press were being briefed that there were six bombs when the news started to break, that's very odd.

The other odd thing is this from an Israeli news site:

Army Radio quoting unconfirmed reliable sources reported a short time ago that Scotland Yard had intelligence warnings of the attacks a short time before they occurred.

The Israeli Embassy in London was notified in advance, resulting in Finance Minister Binyamin Netanyahu remaining in his hotel room rather than make his way to the hotel adjacent to the site of the first explosion, a Liverpool Street train station, where he was to address an economic summit.

Full report

The Israeli embassy has now strongly denied these reports, and the British authorities say that there was no warning.

As to who benefits, some people have been all too explicit in spelling it out. The following from Fox News was quoted here:

The following exchange between Fox News host Brian Kilmeade and Fox News business contributor and substitute host Stuart Varney occurred during breaking news coverage of the attacks on London subways and buses on the July 7 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends:

KILMEADE: And he [British Prime Minister Tony Blair] made the statement, clearly shaken, but clearly determined. This is his second address in the last hour. First to the people of London, and now at the G8 summit, where their topic Number 1 -- believe it or not -- was global warming, the second was African aid. And that was the first time since 9-11 when they should know, and they do know now, that terrorism should be Number 1. But it's important for them all to be together. I think that works to our advantage, in the Western world's advantage, for people to experience something like this together, just 500 miles from where the attacks have happened.

VARNEY: It puts the Number 1 issue right back on the front burner right at the point where all these world leaders are meeting. It takes global warming off the front burner. It takes African aid off the front burner. It sticks terrorism and the fight on the war on terror, right up front all over again.
