Questions from Xymphora about the 7 July bombers.

http://xymphora.blogspot.com/2005/07/yet-more-on-london-bombs.html

From Xymphora:

1. We are to believe that this was part of a larger operation that intended to make more terrorist attacks.

And yet the four alleged terrorists took not the slightest steps to avoid leading police right back to their terrorist base.

They allowed themselves, together with the mysterious fifth man (who now no longer exists, begging the question of who was on the video), to be seen in the same car, took the same commuter train into London (the car could easily have dropped disguised men at separate stations), allowed themselves to be videoed together at King's Cross station, and carried identification with them that made the work of the authorities remarkably easy.

With just the slightest effort, they could have made it practically impossible to track their traces back to their base.

The identity documents of at least one terrorist was apparently found at two attack sites, blocks away from each other.

Of the three sites that the authorities were able to investigate, they found identities at each one, from terrorists supposedly sitting beside the bombs.

No way!

The second problem involves the use of suicide bombers in cases where suicide bombers are unnecessary.

The only reason suicide bombers are used as that it is otherwise impossible to get near the target.

Suicide bombers are hard to come by, and terrorist organizations won't waste them unless they are completely necessary.

They weren't necessary here, so why were they wasted?

I note also that the supplied biographies of at least some of the alleged terrorists don't (or here) ring true as the biographies of suicide bombers.

From Xymphora:

Just a few early questions:

1. Why would suicide bombers need timers? Are we to believe that all four of them died when they mistakenly set off their bombs?

2. Why would suicide bombers carry identification which would lead the authorities directly to their colleagues? How did it survive in at least three of the bombs? I am reminded of the convenient passport found at the World Trade Center.

3. If all four video cameras on the bus were not working, how do the police know what happened on the bus? The witness who saw someone fiddling with a bag just begs the question of whether the fiddler was a bomber. Why do video cameras on buses need to be switched on by the drivers?

4. Why did Jack Straw state so quickly that it was al Qaeda? Is the theory that it is still al Qaeda, or some other group?

5. How did the British know to warn Netanyahu so quickly? If they knew enough to warn Netanyahu, why didn't they have enough time to shut down the subway system? Or did they?

6. Why was the transportation system still operating when the bus bomb went off, nearly an hour later than the subway bombs? One theory is that the last bomber got on the bus after the subway system was closed!

7. How easy would it be to pay some Muslim British men, who are told to carry identification, to drive to London and sit in specific places on specific subway trains or buses? When the bombs go off and the identification is found, you have instant patsies, and British Muslims in the frame. The fact they were seen together on video footage then becomes just part of the set-up. With so many known video cameras in London, why wouldn't they take care not to be seen together? They could have entered London separately if they did not want to be identified as part of a 'cell', and avoid giving the police information that could be used to trace their colleagues. As is often the case with these stories, we are asked to believe that they would be technically proficient ('military grade' explosives), but make the dumbest small mistakes.

8. What happened to the story, out of Canada and New Zealand, that the police shot one or two men near Canary Wharf? The bombers are all dead, and dead men tell no tales. They were kind enough to leave enough identification, and enough video footage, to tie them to British Muslim colleagues.
