London Bombs (30)

Sunday 4th June 2006

From Michael Meacher MP's article "Axis of Lies is spun to hide the truth":

Something very odd is happening. The suspect wanted by the police for `masterminding' the 7/7 and 21/7 bombings, Haroon Rashid Aswat, has now been detained in the UK for seven months, but apparently not even been questioned about the bombings. Instead he is being held awaiting a decision by the Home Secretary to extradite him to the US on the grounds of setting up a terrorist training base in Oregon. This may however be explained by the sensational statement made on the US Fox Television network by the American terrorism expert, John Loftus, a former senior FBI prosecutor, that Aswat is in fact an agent of MI6 and has been under their protection for many years. In Loftus' own words: ``What's really embarrassing is that the entire British police are out chasing him, and one wing of the Government, MI6 or the British Secret Service, has been hiding him... He's a double agent''.

Meanwhile we have the Forest Gate cyanide case which so far looks not too different from the bogus ``North London ricin case'' and the non-existent ``Manchester United bomb plot''.

It's too early to say, but there are certain aspects of the Forest Gate case that seem to put it in the same category. In particular the dramatic announcement of an ``air exclusion zone'' over the area, while people living in the same street were not evacuated from the supposed vicinity of dangerous poisons which could have been released at the time of the raid.

Another indication that the PR for the raid was planned at a high level was that the Deputy Prime minister very publicly left a televised meeting to attend to the matter (although the raid on the house was said to have been planned over weeks).

The police now seem to be trying to imply through leaks to the press that Mohammed Abdul Kahar was shot by his brother rather than by themselves. If they know that none of their own weapons were fired, why are they not stating this directly?

This has happened just as it's being reported that Sir Ian Blair might be charged over the killing of Jean Charles de Menezes.
