Hussain Osman - arrested in Rome

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,2087-1715379,00.html

Hussein Osman, who also uses the name Hamdi Isaac, moved to Rome by Eurostar five days after the 21 July attacks in London. His passport was not checked by the British at Waterloo.

http://observer.guardian.co.uk/uk_news/story/0,6903,1539832,00.html

Some of the Italian media reports quoted Osman as saying: 'I hardly know anything. They only gave me a rucksack to carry on the tube in London. We wanted to stage an attack, but only as a show. Who gave me the explosive? I don't know. I didn't know him. I don't remember. We didn't want to kill, we just wanted to scare people.'

Milan's Corriere della Sera newspaper said Osman first told authorities he did not know what was in the backpack he took on the London underground, then changed his version, saying he was told the attackers were only supposed to carry out 'demonstrative' attacks.

According to the reports, Hussain claimed the men did not talk about al-Qaeda or Osama bin Laden. 'We had no contacts with the organisation of bin Laden. We knew it existed - we accessed its programmes through the internet - but nothing directly,' he is reported to have claimed, adding that the bombings of 7 July took them by surprise: 'We never had any contact with the Pakistanis.'

http://observer.guardian.co.uk/uk_news/story/0,6903,1539832,00.html

One of the men accused of taking part in the failed terror attacks in London on 21 July has claimed the bomb plot was directly inspired by Britain's involvement in the Iraq war.
In a remarkable insight into the motives behind the alleged would-be bombers, Hussain Osman, arrested in Rome on Friday, has revealed how the suspects watched hours of TV footage showing grief-stricken Iraqi widows and children alongside images of civilians killed in the conflict. He is alleged to have told prosecutors that after watching the footage: 'There was a feeling of hatred and a conviction that it was necessary to give a signal - to do something.'

Former Justice Dept. prosecutor John Loftus claims alleged London bombing mastermind Haroon Rashid Aswat is a "double agent" who "works for the MI6".

http://p097.ezboard.com/frigorousintuitionfrm10.showMessage?topicID=127.topic

From Rigorous Intuition forum:

Former Justice Dept. prosecutor John Loftus claims alleged London bombing mastermind Haroon Rashid Aswat is a "double agent" who "works for the MI6".

For those who don't know who he is, Loftus is the author of "The Secret War Against the Jews", a (highly recommended) book resulting from his research into American corporations' and intelligence agencies' collusion with the Nazis before, during and after WWII, research which he conducted with an above top secret security clearance which gave him access to hitherto secret intelligence archives. He is now usually billed as a "terrorism expert".

Prosecutors in Seattle wanted to indict Aswat in 1999 for trying to set up a terrorist training camp in Bly, Oregon, but were ordered not to touch him by the highest level in the Justice Department. According to Loftus, the reason was that Aswat was an agent of British intelligence. He claims that "while British police were trying to catch him, the MI6 were trying to hide him".

Aswat allegedly left London for Pakistan on July 6, one day before the London bombing. He was then arrested in Pakistan, but released within 24 hours. He reportedly travelled to Zimbabwe and then Zambia, where he may have been arrested again (conflicting reports).(http://www.foxnews.com / - click on "video" under "Answering questions", then click "Nabbed - finally".)

It would appear that someone's got some splainin' to do. Loftus says the CIA and Israeli intelligence have been critical of the MI6 for giving terrorists a free pass to operate in London, and he claims the reason for doing so has been "appeasement" - we leave you alone, you leave us alone. But many have suspected, long before 9/11, that radical Islamists have been used as a tool for Britain's covert foreign policy, notably in Bosnia in the 90s, when it is alleged that the MI6 clandestinely recruited young radicals in Britain's Pakistani community to fight a guerrilla war against the Serbs.

Former MI5 officer David Shayler has alleged, and French intel sources have corroborated, that the MI6 paid a Libyan al-Qa'ida cell £100,000 in 1995 to assassinate colonel Qaddafi. (see this Guardian collection of stories on Shayler)

And then there's this, reported in the Independent in January this year:The Independent is reporting today that in his testimony before a US military tribunal, Bisher al-Rawi claims that he acted as a "go-between" for MI-5 and Abu Qatada, "the militant Islamic cleric alleged to be al-Qa'ida's "spiritual leader" in Europe." Al-Rawi was seized (kidnapped?) by US intelligence agents in 2002 while on a business trip to Gambia, on the strength of his relationship with Qatada.

Al-Rawi has named three MI5 agents - "Alex", "Matthew" and "Martin" - and asked that they be called as defence witnesses. The tribunal agreed, but "the British Government refused to allow them to give evidence.

...

The Independent closes with this:

His claims follow allegations, by Islamist militants as well as French security sources, that Abu Qatada had contacts with British intelligence, which the Palestinian strongly denies. His legal advisers are adamant that he was only questioned as part of routine attempts by MI5 to gather intelligence about Islamist groups in the UK.(http://rigorousintuition.blogspot.com/2005/01/mi5-asset... - The Independent link appears to have expired)

Haroom Rashid Aswat, Abu Qatada - which other "al-Qa'ida leaders" are or have been on Her Majesty's payroll, or at least have enjoyed cordial relations with Her security services? Isn't this a question the British media, in particular, ought to be asking? Furthermore, Mr Aswat is not the only "al-Qa'ida member" who appears to have been "untouchable" while in the US - the 19 9/11 hijackers and their associate Zaccharias Moussaoui seem to have been as well. The sabotage by the highest levels in the FBI of Coleen Rowley's desperate attempt to investigate Moussaoui, for instance, is a striking parallel to the "hands-off" order regarding Aswat, and it's far from being the only one.

Saudi Arabia - you are next?

The Telegraph is allegedly used to spread the propaganda of the security services.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2005/07/31/nbomb31.xml&sSheet=/portal/2005/07/31/ixportaltop.html

From the Sunday telegraph, 31 July 2005:

Scotland Yard is investigating evidence that the two waves of terrorist attacks on London this month may have been masterminded from Saudi Arabia.

The Metropolitan Police anti-terrorist squad has learnt that Hussain Osman, 27, one of the suspects for the second failed attacks, called a number in Saudi Arabia hours before his arrest in Rome on Friday...

In an unconfirmed development, the Saudi Arabian authorities are understood to be investigating the possibility that the attacks were planned by extremists there...

Security sources in Italy said he made four calls on Friday: three local calls apparently to relatives and, the most interesting one, to a mobile phone in Saudi Arabia. Scotland Yard is trying to discover who took that call.

Saudi Arabia, which has good relations with the West, has been embarrassed by its links to international terrorism. Not only is it bin Laden's home country but 15 of the September 11 terrorists were from the kingdom.

"There is more speculation about the possible collusion between al-Qaeda and Saudi Arabia."

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article8695.htm

The Shalom Center 04/28/05 has an article about Saudi Arabia.

Sharon's National Security Advisor (and former Mossad chief), Efraim Halevy said:

"In a visit to the United States two weeks ago, I was told by several well-informed observers that should one of the more severe scenarios come to pass, the United States will have no choice but to deepen its presence in the Middle East. To that end, it will have to renew the draft, to ensure that there are enough forces to deal with developing situations in countries like Saudi Arabia."

The 'scenario' being talked about is upheaval in Saudi Arabia.

According to Halevy, the Saudis are demanding US action on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

"In the eyes of the Saudi prince, the rise in the level of tension, violence and enmity in our conflict had the effect of significantly strengthening the extremists in his country and throughout the Arab world..."

To preserve their regime, the Saudi princes need Israeli-Palestinian peace, which can only be achieved with US help.

Halevy thinks that someday the US may side with the Saudis on the issue of Israeli-Palestine peace.

George Galloway was interviewed by weekly ahram in 2003.According to Galloway:

"Ministers, former ministers and senior figures in British politics have, over the last few months, brought up things which I know they have never heard before. They can hardly even pronounce them, words like Hijaz and Najd. Yet they say, 'you know there is nothing called Saudi Arabia really. It was never one country, it was conquered by Al-Saud.'

"It then became clear to me that this was all part of a discussion about partitioning Saudi Arabia.

"So I began to make enquiries with my sources at the Foreign Office and Ministry of Defence and, as it turns out, there is a policy discussion.

"They ask why we have this problem with Saudi Arabia: 'We don't have any interest in the holy places, let them keep their holy places without any foreign soldiers. Our interests in Saudi Arabia are elsewhere in the country so why don't we have two Arabias, why don't we go back to the situation that existed before Saudi Arabia, why don't we go back to a Western looking Hijaz, why don't we free the oppressed Shi'a minority and let the Wahabbis keep their Mecca,' they say. These issues are being discussed now as we talk."

Britain's worst terror incident at Lockerbie; the Lockerbie trial 'was rigged'

~~~

Remember the Lockerbie Bomb?

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/777974.stm

An internal investigation by Pan Am is believed to have found that the bomb planted on Flight 103 was NOT put on the plane in Malta.

The Pan Am report is believed to have concluded that the bomb was not aimed at the killing of Americans in general, but was targeted specifically to kill a small band of DIA operatives that had uncovered a drugs ring run by a CIA unit in Lebanon.

The drugs-ring is said to have been set up by Israeli Mossad agents.

~~~~~

Why do some Scots believe that justice was done at the Lockerbie bomb trial?

Because they have been deceived by the CIA.

LOCKERBIE - There were many advance warnings that a bomb was going to be placed on a US aircraft at Frankfurt airport.

For example, on 5 December 1988, the US Embassy in Helsinki had a telephone warning that "within the next two weeks" an attempt would be made to place a bomb aboard a Pan Am flight from Frankfurt to New York.

On 18 december 1988 the German BKA was tipped off about a bomb plot against Pan Am 103 in the next two or three days.

Pan Am Flight 103 hit Lockerbie on 21 December 1988.

On that flight "were at least 2 US Intelligence agents and a Mr Khalid Nazir Jafaar."

The Dumfries and Galloway police began to investigate.

But for two days it was "difficult" for them to collect evidence as "CIA agents combed the countryside for the luggage of the dead American intelligence agents and a suitcase full of heroin....

59 bodies were left lying around Lockerbie until 24 December...

but by then there were only 58 bodies..." according to former DIA agent Lester Coleman

~~~~

The Lockerbie judges considered the evidence of Maltese shopkeeper Tony Gauci, who provided the only visual identification of al-Megrahi as having been the person who allegedly bought clothes that were found, or planted , at the crash site, and were thought to be in the same suitcase as the bomb.

Gauci’s evidence was upheld despite numerous discrepancies over the date, time, weather, which football matches were on the television and even whether or not Christmas decorations were up.

Gauci had previously identified a member of a Palestinian group, Abu Talb, as being the person who 'bought the clothes'.

Abu Talb does not look like al-Megrahi.

The Lockerbie Bomb trial suggested that something is going badly wrong in Scotland.

http://www.sundayherald.com/14850

The Sunday Herald 08/04/2001 :

"THE United Nations has savaged the Crown Office's handling of the Lockerbie trial claiming the outcome was rigged through the unfair suppression of evidence; it was politically influenced by the USA; and the court had no grounds to return a guilty verdict.

"Dr Hans Kochler, who was handpicked by UN Secretary General Kofi Annan to act as the international observer during the trial in Holland, hinted that the trial was rigged, claimed the guilty verdict handed down in February to Abdelbasset Ali Mohamed Al Megrahi was "arbitrary" and "irrational" and gave his tacit support for an acquittal at the planned appeal."

23 May, 2000:

It was revealed by sections of the Scottish press that the deputy director of the Lockerbie trial briefing unit at Glasgow University, Professor Andrew Fulton, was an MI6 intelligence officer.

The unit was supposed to provide "impartial and objective" legal information about the trial and was much used by the TV news programmes.

24/05/00 THE SCOTSMAN:

"Prof Fulton has been 'on holiday' since it was revealed that during his 30 year diplomatic career he was a key memberof the MI6 secret service in Europe, Asia and America."

~~~

Speaking after the Lockerbie Bomb trial, Dr Jim Swires, whose daughter, Flora, was killed in the explosion said, “We think there has been miscarriage of justice."

Professor Robert Black, the lawyer who has worked closely with the relatives for many years and the architect of the trial process itself, also described the trial as a miscarriage of justice. He told the Scotsman, “We have not seen the end of this case... There is a hell of lot of more evidence that appeared neither at the trial or the appeal.”

Kingstar

http://rigorousintuition.blogspot.com/2005/07/pictures-from-demolition.html

Rigorous intuition shows us a photo, the BBC's, taken in the immediate aftermath of the London bus bombing.

Notice the white "Kingstar" van parallel-parked opposite the site of the blast? (The van is facing the opposite direction of the bus; the front of the bus had just passed.) Any guess what business is Kingstar's?

Would you believe, "Controlled Demolition...in areas where minimal disruption and minimal noise requirements are paramount"?It may turn out to be nothing, as things sometimes turn out to be, but it's at least another curio for the increasingly curious case of the suicide bombers who weren't. "Why did they buy return train tickets to Luton? Why did they buy pay & display tickets for cars? Why were there no usual shouts of 'Allah Akhbar'? Why were bombs in bags and not on their bodies?" asks The Daily Mail.


http://rigorousintuition.blogspot.com/2005/07/signalnoise.html

Rigorous Intuition reminds us of the alleged finding of an Arabic flight manual in Atta's rental car left at Logan airport.

The convenience was reminiscent of the early framing of the narrative regarding Lee Harvey Oswald, and anticipated the discovery of Korans in cars nearby the Madrid bombings...

Remember the Kingstar van across from the bus blast?

One of Kingstar's clients "is AMEC, which was not only involved in the renovation of the attacked wing of the Pentagon on Sep11th, but also in the controlled removal of the rubble in DC and at Ground Zero, New York."

Twenty-six year old Anthony Fatayi-Williams was one of those killed on the #30 bus. Fatay-Williams was a Nigerian-born exective of AMEC, which is also a rival of Halliburton's in the reconstruction of Iraq.

Police Corruption in UK at "Third World Levels"

10/02/98British Newspaper "The Telegraph" reports that it is in possession of a confidential document containing the minutes of a meeting organized by the National Criminal Intelligence Service (NCIS).

The document states that "corrupt officers exist throughout the UK police service" and that the NCIS' intelligence director indicated during the meeting that "Corruption may have reached 'Level 2', the situation which occurs in some third world countries."The document blames the drug trade and the vast amounts of cash inherent in the black market for the enormous level of corruption. It states, in part that "The enormous volume of money that is available to... drug importers and dealers means that very large sums can be offered to corrupt officers. Criminals are willing to pay to ensure their ability to operate."

Mossad seems to have been working alongside Atta?

From the Sunday Herald:

According to a 61-page report, drafted after an investigation by the DEA and the US immigration service, the Israelis were organised into cells of four to six people.

The significance of what the Israelis were doing didn’t emerge until after September 11, 2001, when a report by a French intelligence agency noted “according to the FBI, Arab terrorists and suspected terror cells lived in Phoenix, Arizona, as well as in Miami and Hollywood, Florida, from December 2000 to April 2001 in direct proximity to the Israeli spy cells”...

Mohammed Atta and Marwan al-Shehi had settled in Hollywood, Florida, along with three other hijackers... where another Mossad team was operating close by.

The French intelligence report says the leader of the Mossad cell in Florida rented apartments “right near the apartment of Atta and al-Shehi”.

More than a third of the Israeli “art students” claimed residence in Florida. Two other Israelis connected to the art ring showed up in Fort Lauderdale. At one time, eight of the hijackers lived just north of the town.

~~~

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=104x1433886

The following material comes from Daniel Hopsicker's book 'Welcome to Terrorland'.

1. In Venice Florida, Mohamed Atta lived for two months with an American stripper/lingerie model named Amanda Keller.

2. Atta enjoyed a party lifestyle with Keller nearly every night. He was a heavy drinker, snorted coke, was a stylish dresser and wore expensive jewelry.

3. According to Keller, Atta loved pork chops.

4. In Miami, Atta consorted with women known to be linked to the Mafia.

5. Atta’s email list included names of people who worked for defense contractors. One, for instance, worked for Canadian firm Virtual Prototypes, which helped develop the avionics for F-15, F-22 and B-2.

6. Atta was enrolled as a student at the International Officer’s School of Maxwell Airforce Base, and witnesses recall him having been introduced around at an officers' club party.

7. According to Keller, Atta spoke Hebrew.

8. Atta, Keller, a stripper named Linda and two Germans, Peter and Johan, partied for three days in Key West. Atta paid for everything. Rented three rooms, one just for the men’s luggage, which Keller says contained drugs. Key West Airport is a known drug transit point.

9. The FBI timeline says Atta left Venice Florida in December 2000 after completing his flight training. Dozens of locals say different – his landlord, neighbours, cab drivers, restaurant employees and his girlfriend, for a few instances – and have been told not to talk about it by federal authorities.

The FBI publicly sought information regarding Atta’s time in various US locations, but not Venice Florida where the airfield reportedly has links to CIA operations.

1o. Six nights before the 9 11 attack, at a bar called Shuckums in Ft Lauderdale, Atta and two companions got drunk. Manager Tony Amos and bartender Patricia Idrissi identified both.

11. Wally Hilliard upon arriving in Florida entered into aviation businesses with an assortment of criminal and covert intelligence elements.

12. Hilliard denied knowing Atta. Keller recalled, on a visit to the airport, having Hilliard ask her, "What’s a nice girl like you doing with a guy like Mohamed?"

13. Less than three weeks after Atta and Marwan Al-Shehi began flying lessons at Huffman Aviation, a Lear jet owned by its financier, Wally Hilliard, carrying 43 pounds of heroin was seized by the DEA. Authorities called it the biggest seizure of heroin ever in central Florida.

14. John Villada, an aviation executive in Naples Florida: "After Wally’s plane was impounded with the heroin and his pilots had machine guns stuck in their faces, the DEA came to visit our maintenance facility and Wally shouted out to me – right in front of the DEA guy – 'Make sure all the heroin and cocaine gets hidden!'" Hilliard's mock warning seemed to show the DEA how little he thought of them, and how well he was protected.

15. Hilliard had got his Lear jet from World Jet Inc, owned by drug smuggling brothers Don and Bill Whittington, who had supplied the plane to CIA drug smuggler Barry Seal.

16. A former Huffman executive, speaking about the hijackers: "Early on I gleaned that these guys had government protection. They were let into this country for a specific purpose. It was a business deal."

17. Jeb Bush accompanied the FBI when they removed the flight school records on the early morning of September 12, and flew them to Washington.

18. Jeb Bush and Katherine Harris have flown and endorsed Hilliard’s air carrier.

19. In the days following 9/11, a number of Saudis fled the country from Florida after the attacks. They flew on Wally Hillier’s charter aircraft to private fields of military contractor Raytheon, and departed on a 747.

20. After the attacks, a virtually non-existent company that operated out of Venice Airport under Huffman’s license called Britannia Aviation was awarded a five-year, multi-million dollar contract to run the maintenance facility at Lychburg Virginia Regional Airport. (FYI, Lynchburg is the home of Jerry Falwell’s Liberty Baptist University.) Britannia executive Peter Martens boasted that his company had been providing maintenance at Venice Airport for "Caribe Air," which is a notorious CIA proprietary carrier.

21. Many of the Venice flight trainers moonlight by flying "missionary flights" to Central and South America, for such organizations as Pat Robertson’s Operation Hope.

22. Most of Atta's closest associates in Venice were not Arabs, but Europeans with connection to the drug trade.

http://xymphora.blogspot.com/2002_04_28_xymphora_archive.html

The following is taken from Xymphora:

Mohamed Atta was in Florida in April 2000, attending a pilot school and sending e-mails to a group which included people working for U. S. defence contractors (hardly the kind of group you'd think a quiet student in Hamburg, Germany would be able to assemble).

The problem is that in the summer of 2000 (I assume the article is referring to 2000, as the summer of 2001 would be even weirder) he apparently was presenting a model of Washington, D. C. to his architecture class in Hamburg.

He is in fact only supposed to have arrived in the United States in June 2000. How was he simultaneously at pilot school in April in Florida, and still a student in Hamburg who hasn't yet left for the United States?...

As I have already written, the Atta born in Egypt and living in Hamburg is almost certainly not the same person as Atta the hijacker.

The fact that there are two 'Attas' tells us a lot (for one thing, it tells us how he can be in two places at once!).

Who had the power to pick a suitable identity (right age, ethnicity, piously fundamentalist Muslim) and give it to the man who used the Atta identity in Florida?

Who presented us with the fake identity, and who continues to cover up the truth?

Why was the obviously skilled pilot who flew into the World Trade Center attending two-bit (the first one went out of business while he was attending it, and the second one also has a shady past) flying schools in South Florida, which wouldn't have been able to train him to so skilfully fly large passenger jets?

The reason is that flight schools can accept foreign students on student visas, and the paperwork for the visas which is prepared by the schools on behalf of the students forms the main basis for the fictitious identities of the hijackers (the seemingly senseless mailing of a visa renewal to two of the hijackers six months after September 11, which caused such outrage in the United States, was just another way of emphasizing the personal identity of the hijackers to the American people).

Why was Atta so extraordinarily sloppy in his relations with government bureaucracy (driving without a licence, not attending at his court hearing, abandoning a plane at Miami airport, and having, of all things, visa problems), all out of line with what is supposedly the al-Qaeda training manual which insists on terrorists keeping a low profile, unless he was trying to create an obvious record of his existence and identity in the United States?

My guess is that the person playing the role of Mohamed Atta was an American citizen... and intelligence operative, whose real name we'll never know.

Mohammed Naseem - Birmingham's most prominent Muslim leader

http://news.ft.com/cms/s/c3c9fa22-fed0-11d9-94b4-00000e2511c8,dwp_uuid=46d6f5a8-d260-11d8-b661-00000e2511c8,ft_acl=,s01=2.html

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/west_midlands/4723731.stm

Mohammed Naseem, Birmingham's most prominent Muslim leader, says he has doubts about the evidence which suggests that Muslims carried out the bomb attacks in London on July 7 and 21.

Mr Naseem denied there was any convincing evidence the September 11 attacks on New York had been carried out by the al-Qaeda terrorist organisation.

He said: “Muslims across the world know of no organisation called al-Qaeda. That information comes from the CIA.”

Mr Naseem, who represents a congregation of several thousand, was speaking in Bordesley Green close to the scene of yesterday's police anti-terrorism operation.

Asked whether he believed Muslim terrorists attacked London on July 7 and 21, he said: “I have not seen the evidence for that.”

He said: “All we have is CCTV camera photos, identity cards and driving licences. These could have been innocent men.”

Speaking to BBC Radio WM he questioned the existence of al-Qaeda.

"I don't think al-Qaeda exists because we Muslims all over the world have not known this organisation," he said."The only information about this organisation is coming from the CIA. Now, the CIA is not known for telling the truth."

Dr Naseem is one of the elder statesmen of Islam in Britain and has been a leading figure among Muslims for many years in Birmingham.

His position in the city arguably means he runs one of the most important Islamic institutions in Britain, the mosque being regularly used by thousands of Muslims from across the west Midlands.

Muktar Said-Ibrahim

http://www.guardian.co.uk/attackonlondon/story/0,16132,1537640,00.html

Muktar Said-Ibrahim, the suspected London bomber, was jailed for five years in 1996 at Wood Green crown court in north London for his role in a teenage gang which robbed people in the Welwyn Garden City and Stevenage areas of Hertfordshire.

Former friends were quoted as saying that, as a youngster, he smoked cannabis and was known as a troublemaker.

He applied to become a British citizen in November 2003, and was granted a passport last September.

The Home Office declined to explain how it was possible to get a passport with his criminal record.

Was he recruited by the security services?

David Shayler, ex-MI5 agent: 'the London bombings were most likely carried out by the British government.'

http://www.arcticbeacon.com/articles/article/1518131/30339.htm

According to Greg Szymanski, at arcticbeacon on 29 July, former British MI5 Agent David Shayler says:

1. the London bombings were most likely carried out by the British government.

2. there are 'many similarities' between the London bombings And 9/11.

3. the free people of the world are at war with an enemy within and either democracy will prevail or a fascist rule and martial law will take over.

Greg Szymanski writes:

“It’s amazing how many aspects of the two events are so similar,” said David Shayler, the former MI5 agent and whistle blower, in a telephone conversation this week from his home in East Bonn on the southern coast of England.

Shayler, a thorn in the British government’s side ever since he blew the whistle in 1997 about rampant corruption within both arms of British intelligence, MI5 (domestic) and MI6 (foreign), said he has just began looking into the details of the 7/7 attacks, but what’s being released through the press and government reports shows a strikingly similar pattern to what he calls “the same type of misinformation thrown out after 9/11.”

“First, we learn about the training exercises going on here just like 9/11.

"Next, they release suspicious evidence left behind by the culprits as well as quickly releasing identifying pictures of the suspects just like they did after 9/11,” he said.

Shayler added that what’s even more suspicious is the private security firm in charge of the training drills prior to 7/7 had ties to former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Further, he also received information that one of the named suicide bombers, whose picture was released in the London press, has turned up alive and well in Pakistan.

“Just like in the United States, we here in England are being bombarded with what looks like a lot of misinformation in the press,” said Shayler.

“Apparently, one of the supposed suicide bombers has turned up alive just like six or seven of the 19 Arab hijackers turned up alive after 9/11.”....

“Let there be no doubt that the people of the free world are engaged in a war,” said Shayler, suggesting however that the enemy is within and not simply radical Islamic terrorists.

“In the next few years, we are either going to see the people of the free world rise up against these fascists, now setting the stage for global war, or we are going to see the end of democracy as we know it with martial law the end result...”

Verint Systems, a subsidiary of Israel's Comverse Technology

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/news.php3?id=69208


An Israeli security firm has been chosen to provide security for London’s Underground train network.

Verint Systems, a subsidiary of Israel's Comverse Technology announced that Metronet Rail has selected Verint's networked video solution to enhance security of the London Underground, according to an Israel21c report.

After extensive testing of Verint’s networked video system, including pilot installation on selected rail lines, Metronet Rail selected it to be installed on the entire Underground.

The system will enable security personnel to monitor passenger platforms and certain remote portions of the track.

Verint president and CEO Dan Bodner told Israel21c: "We have significant experience working with transportation authorities and are committed to delivering innovative networked video security solutions for the transportation industry.

"Metronet Rail, under a 30 year contract with the UK government, is responsible for maintaining parts of the London Underground's infrastructure. This includes ensuring security in trains, stations, tunnels and bridges.

Jean Charles de Menezes shot by the police

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4711021.stm

Jean Charles de Menezes was shot dead by police hunting the bombers behind the London attacks. Jean Charles de Menezes was unconnected to the incidents, police have confirmed.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/attackonlondon/story/0,16132,1535565,00.html

The 27-year-old Brazilian-born electrician, Jean Charles de Menezes, had been due in Kilburn, to help fit a fire alarm...

"He rang me ... saying that he would be a little late because the tube lines weren't working properly," said Gesio de Avila, a builder and close friend who Mr De Menezes had been due to meet that morning for the fire alarm job...

Mr Menezes had been stopped twice by police in the past, said his cousin, who said that was a normal occurrence for young Brazilian men in London...

~~~

http://xymphora.blogspot.com/2005/07/shoot-to-kill.html

The following is from Xymphora:

...In the case of Jean Charles de Menezes, the authorities pursued him from a place of relatively few people into a crowded subway train, apparently made no attempt to fire at him until he was on the ground (witnesses reported no shots until the five fatal ones), and only killed him when he was closely surrounded by a number of official shooters.

In other words, they followed absolutely no part of the protocol apparently learned from the Israelis on how to deal with suicide bombers.

Had he been a real suicide bomber, they had given him ample time to set off his bomb, forced him to a place where the bomb would have done the maximum harm, and might even have accidentally triggered the bomb by their firing at him at close range, surrounded by policemen who would have been victims of the bomb.

I'm always suspicious when I read elaborate explanations for official behavior that don't match what the officials actually did.

There is still no logical explanation of how Jean Charles de Menezes even ended up under police surveillance.

Officials claim that he was living in an apartment in the same building or in a building close to the building which the police were watching as the residence of someone suspected of being connected to the bombings.

At least, that's the Official Story. It makes no sense.

Did they not know what the person they were supposedly watching actually looked like?

Would any person living in the building, or even in the area of the building, become a suspect?...

If they thought he was a suicide bomber, why did they let him walk into a subway station? Why did they only challenge him - if in fact they did - or run after him after he was in a place where he could do real damage?

The Official Story has so many holes in it that it appears that at least part of it was made up after the fact, in order to justify what seems to be an unjustifiable shooting.

http://xymphora.blogspot.com/2005/07/more-they-tell-us-less-we-know.html

The following is from Xymphora:

1. The police were staking out the block of flats in which he was living because the address had been found in documents left in one of the abandoned rucksacks that didn't blow up in the last series of attacks. That's a good place to leave the address of your safe house!

2. There were eight separate flats in the block, and he did not look like any of the suspects, but the police decided to follow him anyway.

3. Although they feared he might be a suicide bomber, they let him get on a bus!

4. For some reason, they decided he must not be allowed to get on the subway platform, even though it was fine for him to take a ten-minute bus ride.

5. His cousin, Alex Alves, claimed in one account that the victim was "playing around with a friend in a game of chase outside the station", although the police story is that he was alone (and playing around in a game of chase is an interesting thing to do before you go and blow yourself up).

6. They claim they gave a shouted warning to him - odd if they really thought he was going to blow himself up so quickly that shoot-to-kill was necessary - although witnesses heard no such warning.

7. The latest version is that he was shot eight times at close range, seven times in the head and once in the shoulder (although this is inconsistent with the original reports of five shots and inconsistent with the report of Alex Pereira, another cousin - ? - who saw the body when he identified it).

If a coroner saw a corpse shot seven times in the head at close range, he would assume that the shooter was extremely angry and emotionally involved, and that this was a crime of passion. The overkill is inconsistent with a professional shooter, and was potentially dangerous as an errant shot could have set off the bombs the victim supposedly carried. As usual, the more they tell us the less we know.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk_news/story/0,3604,1537457,00.html

The Guardian, July 28, 2005, quotes Vivien Figueiredo, the cousin of Jean Charles de Menezes, the Brazilian shot dead in the head.

According to Figueiredo, Menezes was not wearing a heavy jacket that might have concealed a bomb, and did not jump the ticket barrier when challenged by armed plainclothes police.

Figueiredo said that the first reports were wrong.

"He used a travel card," she said.

"He had no bulky jacket, he was wearing a jeans jacket."

"My cousin was an honest and hard working person," said Ms Figueiredo who shared a flat with him in Tulse Hill, south London.

Another cousin, Patricia da Silva Armani, 21, said he was in Britain legally to work and study, giving him no reason to fear the police.

Scotland Yard initially claimed he wore a bulky jacket and jumped the barrier when police identified themselves and ordered him to stop.

The same day the Met commissioner, Sir Ian Blair, said the shooting was "directly linked" to the unprecedented anti-terror operation on London's streets.

Reports of American military activity

Right now we cannot say with any certainty where the events of July 7th are heading but something is definitely in the offing.

Residents near Wright Patterson Air Force Base in the US report tremendous activity there, far more so than usual.

Coupled with this we are informed that all leave has been cancelled at some US military bases and with the construction of a huge US military base in Israel, scheduled to be operational by September, something big is looming in the months ahead.

So if something is looming, you might ask, where will it happen?

Just as the events of 9/11 led to Afghanistan and Iraq, we would suggest that the horrors of 7/7/05 are intended to lead to another war somewhere in the Middle East.

According to the 'Truth Seeker', commuters who passed through Luton on the day of the actual bombings claimed that trains through the station were being cancelled or sent back from whence they came, at around the time the bombers are reported to have passed through, an hour before the actual bomb blasts.

Commuters who travelled through one of the underground stations, Kings Cross, emailed the 'Truth Seeker' describing scenes of chaos and confusion before the actual bombings, the result London Transport staff explained, of problems with power surges and signal malfunctions.

The explosives and the devices

http://www.sciencedaily.com/upi/?feed=TopNews&article=UPI-1-20050713-07514000-bc-britain-explosions.xml

Traces of the explosive known as C4 were found at all four blast sites, and The Times of London said Scotland Yard considers it vital to determine if they were part of a terrorist stockpile.

C4 is manufactured mostly in the United States, and is more deadly and efficient than commercial varieties.

It is easy to hide, stable, and is often missed by traditional bomb-sniffing detection systems, the newspaper said.

Forensic scientists told the newspaper the construction of the four devices detonated in London was very technically advanced, and unlike any instructions that can be found on the Internet.

The CCTV cameras on the bus bombed on 7 July - an e mail from a Stagecoach employee

http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/july2005/150705busbombing.htm

The following is from Prison Planet:

By Paul Joseph Watson of Prison Planet, July 15 2005:

We received an e mail from an employee of Stagecoach, the company responsible for the majority of London buses.

Our contact works a route roughly one mile from the site of the bus bombing last Thursday.

The bus driver pointed out that the number 30 bus was the only one to be re-routed after the initial bombs went off in the London Underground, every other bus carried on its normal journey, but for some reason this bus was diverted.

The driver notes the following about CCTV maintainence:

CCTV gets maintained at least 2 or 3 times a week and can digitally store upto 2 whole weeks worth of footage. this is done by a private contractor....

So when I heard that the CCTV wasn't working on a vehicle that's no more than 2 years old since last June.....

I'm sorry that's rubbish, I work for the company I know different.

Also a point of interest.... last saturday a contractor came to inspect the CCTV on the buses at the depot. According to my supervisor the person spent more than 20 hours over that weekend, 20 hours to see if the CCTV is working?

Also that person who came was not a regular contractor, for security reasons the same few people always come to the depot to carry out work, this time it was different.

Drivers in the depot already think the so called bombers had inside help because it was to organised. Some even think it had help from the company.

I have received other information suggesting that the CCTV is regularly maintained and checked.

The police pay the bus company to check it, and the bus company makes a substantial profit out of this, so all parties benefit from keeping the CCTV systems working.

This information makes it all the more suspicious that the bus cameras were not working.

Was the mammoth 20 hour inspection session of the CCTV a means of disabling the CCTV, or something even darker?

Were the contractors, who were not familiar to the bus company employees, actually placing the bomb?

Terror drill on morning of 7 July

http://www.onlinejournal.com/Commentary/071305Leonard/071305leonard.html

The following is from Online Journal:

By John Leonard - Online Journal Contributing Writer.

A British disaster recovery consultant working at the scene of the London 7/7 bombings tells British TV and radio how they occurred precisely at the times and places scheduled in a terrorism drill he was running.

Terrorism experts Jones and Tarpley explain why terror drills are a sure sign of a false flag op—they create the alibi that covers up the activities of insider perpetrators.July 13, 2005—The slip was showing On Her Majesty's Secret Service, broadcast on prime time TV for all Britain to see on the evening of 7/7—but almost no one noticed.

It happened on a special called Target London. Rescue workers on one half of the screen, and on the other, Peter Power, a British consultant, innocently giving the game away.Can you see what's wrong with this picture?

Power:

Today we were running an exercise for a company . . . 1,000 people involved in the whole organization—with the crisis team. And the most peculiar thing was, it was we based on a scenario of simultaneous attacks on a underground and mainline station. So we had to suddenly switch an exercise from fictional to real. . . .

Interviewer:

Just to get this right, you were actually working today on an exercise that envisioned virtually this scenario?

Power:

Almost precisely.

Within the hour Mr. Power was on the radio, too:

Power:

At half past nine this morning we were actually running an exercise for a company of over a thousand people in London based on simultaneous bombs going off precisely at the railway stations where it happened this morning, so I still have the hairs on the back of my neck standing up right now.

Host:

To get this quite straight, you were running an exercise to see how you would cope with this and it happened while you were running the exercise?

Power:

Precisely.

You might need to be a paranoid 9/11 conspiracy theorist like me to understand what Mr. Power was saying, since as a normal person, he himself was surprised but not suspicious.

Well, this was exactly how the covert perps or moles in the US air defense agencies covered for whatever they had in the air on 9/11: with a drill for the very attack they were carrying out.

Here is how Joseph Paul Watson and Alex Jones explain it:

The exercise fulfils several different goals. It acts as a cover for the small compartmentalized government terrorists to carry out their operation without the larger security services becoming aware of what they're doing, and, more importantly, if they get caught during the attack or after with any incriminating evidence they can just claim that they were just taking part in the exercise.

This is precisely what happened on the morning of 9/11/2001. The CIA was conducting drills of flying hijacked planes into the WTC and Pentagon at 8:30 in the morning.Thus the drill also helps keep the number of witting accomplices small. You don't need an entire agency made up of homicidal sociopaths.

Terrorism expert Webster G. Tarpley gives an example in his 9/11 Synthetic Terror:

Staff exercises or command exercises are perfect for a rogue network which is forced to conduct its operations using the same communications and computer systems used by other officers who are not necessarily party to the illegal operation, coup or provocation as it may be.

A putschist officer may be working at a console next to another officer who is not in on the coup, and who might indeed oppose it if he knew about it.

The putschist's behavior is suspicious: what the hell is he doing? The loyal officer looks over and asks the putschist about it. The putschist cites a staff maneuver for which he is preparing. The loyal officer concludes that the putschist's activities are part of an officially sanctioned drill, and his suspicions are allayed.

The putschist may even explain that participation in the staff exercise requires a special security clearance which the loyal officer does not have. The conversation ends, and the putschist can go on with his treasonous work.

How could this have worked in London?

Mr. Powers would be like the loyal agent without the supersecret clearance; his job in the drill was to unwittingly help provide camouflage. Several participants could be given the "play-acting" role of terrorists who plant bags with "fake" bombs in them at the appropriate point in the scenario—but this time, real bombs were substituted.

Whether witting or not, they would run no risk of arrest—it was "just a drill."

The WTC bombing of 1993 was perpetrated by the FBI in just this way: the patsies were told it was a sting operation to catch the terrorists, but at the last minute, live explosives were "somehow" used instead.

Hopefully, there are enough people out there who can add two and two together from Mr. Power's candor.

The drill and the confidential identity of the "client company" may have covered over the trail, so this might be the best smoking gun we get on 7/7.

Although it does seem this penchant for false flag ops is going to trip them up sooner or later.

It's gotten to be such an awfully regular habit, do they even know how to stop?

Transcript:

POWER:

Today we were running an exercise for a company—bear in mind now that I'm in the private sector—and we sat everybody down in the city—1000 people involved in the whole organization—with the crisis team. And the most peculiar thing was it was we based on a scenario of simultaneous attacks on a underground and mainline station. So we had to suddenly switch an exercise from fictional to real. And one of the first things is, get that bureau number, when you have a list of people missing, tell them. And it took a long time—

INTERVIEWER:

Just to get this right, you were actually working today on an exercise that envisioned virtually this scenario?

POWER:

Almost precisely. I was up to 2 oclock this morning, because it's our job, my own company. Visor Consultants, we specialize in helping people to get their crisis management response, how you jump from slow time thinking to quick time doing. And we chose a scenario with no assistance, which is based on a terrorist attack because they've been close to a property occupied by Jewish businessmen there in the city, and there are more American banks in this city than there are in the whole of New York—a logical thing to do.

9/11 researcher, Nico Haupt has uncovered a connection between Rudi Giuliani and Peter Power -the former member of the UK anti-terrorism force, who said on TV that he was running a coincident terror drill centered on the Underground stations which were bombed.

It seems that Power served on the Advisory Board to the Canadian Centre for Emergency Preparedness(CCEP), along with none other than Richard Sheirer, Senior Vice President, Giuliani & Partners.

As well as being director of New York's overall emergency response planning in the lead-in to 9/11, Sheirer himself was the city's on-scene coordinator of multiple agency responses to the 9/11 attacks themselves.

"It's proven that in the 1993 WTC bombing, the FBI planted Emad A. Salem to infiltrate an Arab group in New York. His job was to act as an agent provocateur, inciting violent attacks. It was Salem who convinced the other participants to bomb the World Trade Center.

"When he was asked to assemble the bomb, he went to the FBI to ask for harmless powder to avoid a catastrophe. The FBI essentially cut him off. To make a long, complicated story short and simple: The FBI spent $3 million of your tax money to blow up the World Trade Center."

Matthew Paris, in The Times July 23, 2005, named the four powers who are behind the al-Qaeda conspiracy:

1. the security services

2. the government

3. the media

4. and the terrorist.

According to Paris:

"The BBC’s The Power of Nightmares made an important point: fear silences opposition, and governments walk tallest when an external threat can be identified and they can lead us against it."

Paris wrote:

"Immediately after July 7 it was prominently reported that the explosions 'bore all the hallmarks' of the use of a type of high-grade military explosive whose presence would indicate a sophisticated international dimension to the bombings."

Then the story changed.

"Immediately after the first bombing, a report was splashed that two people had been arrested trying to leave Heathrow.They were released without charge."

A few days after that, much was made of the arrest in Egypt of a British Muslim whom the less-scrupulous news reports called a “chemist” (he is a biochemist).

Then the story changed.

"Then there were some big headlines about an alleged “al-Qaeda operative” who had “slipped” into Britain, and slipped out — just before the bombings."

Then the story changed."

This is only a small sample of the deadends..."

Osama and the CIA writing the scripts?

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,2088-1697230,00.html

Simon Jenkins, in the 17 July 2005 Sunday Times, refers to the London bombers.

The one thing the bomber craves is fame. So why offer it on a plate?

Why does BBC news ghoulishly retrace the Thameslink “trail of terror”, or Newsnight explain exactly how to make a Tube bomb, or a radio reporter declare that “race relations in Leeds will never be the same again”?

Who is writing these scripts — Osama Bin Laden?...

For the past week I have sometimes wondered whether Bin Laden himself were not controlling the British media.

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.

~~~

Http://xymphora.blogspot.com/2005/07/birth-of-london-bomb-official-story.html

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.

Operation Gladio and other acts of government terror.

http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/july2005/110705warningtotheworld.htm

The following is from Prison Planet:

Members of Vladimir Putin's FSB were caught planting bombs in a Russian apartment building in 1999 by the Moscow police...

Kermit Roosevelt admited on NPR radio that in 1953 the CIA and British intelligence carried out a wave of bombings and shootings in Iran. He then went on to brag about how they subsequently blamed the bombings on Iran's President, Mossadegh...

The British government has been caught in multiple examples of carrying out bombings in London which were then blamed on the IRA. They even had one of their own MI5 agents within the Omagh bomb squad.

Click here for an archive of this evidence.

In what was called 'the strategy of tension,' Operation Gladio, a CIA/MI6 controlled state terror program swept Europe over three decades.

In sworn testimomy, a Gladio agent, Vincenzo Vinciguerra, made the following comment:

"You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple: to force ... the public to turn to the state to ask for greater security."

And we ask the question, isn't it convenient for the kingpins of the war on terror that none of the terror attacks ever harm the establishment they are supposedly aimed at?

Pentagon document Field Manual FM 30-31B openly discusses launching terrorist attacks in nations that "do not react with sufficient effectiveness" to the geopolitical demands of the Globalists.

How many of the family members of the London subway bombing victims are aware of the fact that in a 2000 investigation the Italian Senate concluded that the 1980 Bologna train bombing that killed 85 people was carried out by "men inside Italian state institutions and ... men linked to the structures of United States intelligence."?

Gladio was continued by way of Central American death squads and that policy is being ressurected today in Iraq.

The right wing extremist groups are still controlled by the state to this day. A 2003 court case embarassed the German government when it was discovered that one in seven Neo Nazis was a secret service agent, and in many cases had been for decades. The Neo-Nazis are controlled by the government and used as a means to restrict any form of alternative political speech.

French bomb squad officers slipped 150 grams of plastic explosive into the side pocket of a blue bag waiting to be loaded on to a plane. Baggage handlers put the suitcase on a conveyor belt, where it was swiftly dispatched on to a waiting plane. The two officers responsible are to face an internal investigation.

27 killed by British bombs in Dublin?

27 killed by British bombs in Dublin?

On May 17, 1974, two car bombs exploded in Dublin. They were timed and placed to cause the maximum level of casualties and disruption, while leaving escape roads free for the attackers.

Some hours later a fourth bomb, apparently intended to divert police and security forces from individuals trying to cross back from the Irish Republic into Northern Ireland, exploded in the border town of Monaghan.

Twenty-seven people were killed in Dublin and six in Monaghan.This was the worst single atrocity of the war in Ireland.

http://www.relativesforjustice.com/publications/monaghan.htmhttp://www.wsws.org/articles/2003/dec2003/irel-d23.shtml

Don Mullan, at Relatives for Justice, has written about British Military Intelligence and the Dublin and Monaghan bombs.

A Yorkshire Television documentary, in 1993, claimed the UVF were aided by British Military Intelligence in carrying out the bombings.

The Yorkshire Television documentary, 'Hidden Hand: The Forgotten Massacre' alleged British intelligence had provided the bombers with military assistance.

Previous UVF bombs were primitive. The Dublin and Monaghan bombs involved 'an extraordinary degree of military sophistication'.

“Hidden Hand” named four suspects: Billy Hanna, Harris Boyle, 'the Jackal' later named as Robin Jackson and Robert McConnell.

“Hidden Hand” stated that McConnell, Boyle and “the Jackal” were controlled by British Army Captain Robert Nairac.

Hanna was allegedly run separately by the British Army from Lisburn and 3 Brigade HQ in Lurgan.

The documentary alleged the Garda (Irish police) and the RUC knew the identity of the bombers in the days following the explosion.

The Yorkshire Television claims are supported by professional analysts such as Lieutenant Colonel George Styles.

In 1983, French journalist Roger Faligot alleged that an SAS Brigadier and Captain took part in the Dublin bombings.

~~~

On 1 December 1972, the Irish parliament was debating the Offences Against the State (Amendment) Bill, which proposed to secure a conviction of IRA membership on the sworn testimony of a garda superintendent.

The Fine Gael party had strong doubts about the legislation. The Labour party was going to vote against the bill.

Just before the Bill was to debated, bombs exploded at Liberty Hall and Sackville Place, killing two CIE workers and injuring many civilians.

The Bill was carried by 69 votes to 22.

In August 1973, Prime Minister Jack Lynch is reported to have said that both he and the Irish Cabinet had a 'suspicion' that the 1972 bombs had been the work of British Intelligence.

~~~

The RTE (Irish TV) documentary 'Friendly Forces', voiced real 'suspicion', if not probability, that British Military Intelligence were involved in the 1974 bombing of Dublin and Monaghan.

~~~

Former captain Fred Holroyd, a former MI6 spy who was stationed in Ireland, has stated that Loyalists did not carry out the 1974 attack unaided.

He describes Loyalist skills at that time as "pretty primitive".

In 1984 Holroyd, during a BBC Breakfast television interview, spoke about his undercover contacts with the Garda, Ireland's police force.

WSWS wrote about the Baron report on the Dublin bombs.

In Ireland, the Barron report, in 2003, 'confirmed British collusion in 1974 Dublin bombings.

'Irish Supreme Court judge Henry Barron's report makes many extremely damning points.

In January 1974 Northern Ireland got a power sharing executive ( Unionist, Social Democratic and Labour Party, and Alliance Party).

Barron’s report notes the allegation that elements within the British security forces in Northern Ireland were trying to destabilise the Northern Ireland executive.

These elements wanted to defeat the IRA using military force.

Barron studied “Hidden Hand”.

Barron largely accepted the evidence of two of the main interviewees - convicted killer John Weir, a former RUC officer in Armagh’s Special Patrol Group (SPG), and Colin Wallace, a former information and covert psychological operations officer in the army’s Information Policy Unit.

In “Hidden Hand” Weir explained that he had become part of a group of police who had attacked Catholics. Weir said RUC officers made no efforts to stop them.

Colin Wallace reportedly exposed :

1. the black propaganda used against opponents of army policy.

2. a plot by elements of MI5 to bring down the Wilson government.

3. child abuse at the Kincora Boys’ Home.

Wallace believed that the intelligence services were blackmailing a leading loyalist involved in the abuse to ensure his assistance in their efforts at manipulating the loyalist gangs.

Wallace was framed for manslaughter in 1981. Wallace’s conviction was quashed in 1996.

Barron described Wallace as a “highly knowledgeable witness” whose analyses and opinions “should also be treated with seriousness and respect.”

Barron looked at the evidence supporting the view that security forces directly assisted the Dublin and Monaghan attacks.

Evidence of collusion by the armed forces involved leading loyalist Billy Hanna. Hanna appears to have been very close to certain soldiers and plainclothes officers.

Barron stated:

1. the view that members of the security forces had been involved in the bombings is “neither fanciful or absurd.”

2. Some of the suspects had relationships with British intelligence and/or RUC Special Branch.

Shahzad Tanweer

The name of Shahzad Tanweer has been linked to the London bombs of 7 July 2005.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/attackonlondon/story/0,16132,1527429,00.html

"Ten days ago Shahzad Tanweer, a 22-year-old British Asian, was playing cricket in the local park with his friends. It was something he loved to do. He was a sporty young man who loved martial arts, drove his dad's Mercedes and had many friends in the Beeston area of Leeds."

"'He is sound as a pound,' said Azi Mohammed, a close friend. 'The idea that he was involved in terrorism or extremism is ridiculous. The idea that he went down to London and exploded a bomb is unbelievable.'

"'I only played cricket in the park with him around 10 days ago. He is not interested in politics."'

Operation Suzannah, John Darling, The Lavon Affair.

In July 1954 Egypt was plagued by a series of bomb outrages directed mainly against American and British property in Cairo and Alexandria. It was assumed that the bombs were the work of the Moslem Brothers.

http://216.239.59.104/search?q=cache:W0kE3hFkOGwJ:www.angelfire.com/dc/1spy/Lavon.html+lavon+gibli+&hl=en

Operation Suzannah was the work of Colonel Benyamin Gibli, the chief of Israel's army intelligence.

Gibli wanted British and American properties in Egypt to be bombed. He wanted the Egyptian government to be blamed. He wanted the USA to hate Egypt.

In Egypt, Israeli intelligence officer Avram Dar recruited several Egyptians.

Dar used the name John Darling and posed as a British citizen.

On 2 July1954, a post office in Alexandria was firebombed.

On July 14, the U.S. Information Agency libraries in Alexandria and Cairo, and a British-owned theatre, were bombed.

The plot was uncovered.

Israeli agent Robert Dassa had a bomb in his pocket which ignited by accident.The Egyptian government arrested Dassa. Dassa's apartment was searched. The names of accomplices were found.

Several suspects were arrested, including Egyptian Jews and Israelis.

Another report states that one the Israeli spies was a double agent working for Colonel Osman Nouri, the chief of Egyptian counter-intelligence.

Israel's secretary of defense Pinchas Lavon denied any knowledge of the operation.

Israel's intelligence chief, Gibli, claimed that Lavon had given him verbal order to proceed with the plot.

Lavon blamed Shimon Peres, who was the secretary general of the defense ministry, and also blamed Gibli.

Supporters of Lavon also accused Israeli Chief of Staff Moshe Dayan of conspiring against Lavon and being the real culprit in the case.

Gordon Thomas, Tim Shipman and Yvonne Ridley, in the 11 May 2003 Sunday Express, wrote about Israeli death squads in London.

According to 'senior Israeli sources', Israel moved a number of agents, including 'the Kidon assassination squad', into the UK.

An MI5 source was quoted as saying: "We know from past experience the Kidon can make murder look like an accident. It is their speciality."

Mossad chief, Meir Dagan, reportedly told Eliza Manningham-Buller, head of MI5, that Mossad would co-operate closely with her agents.

According to the Sunday Express article, "British intelligence officers are angry that Mossad's arrival in force in Britain ... undermines their independence... Their worst fear is that innocent civilians could get mixed up in an assassination attempt..."

But they also fear that the Mossad incursion into Britain is an attempt to embarrass the Labour Government, which has upset Mr Sharon through Tony Blair's stern advocacy of the Middle East peace road map.

A British intelligence source said: "The whole purpose would be to neutralise Britain and eliminate Blair from taking part in the talks on the grounds his country is harbouring terrorists."Sharon gets rid of UK interference and is able to shoehorn Mossad in to Britain again with the blessing of the Government."

On the 17th April 1984, policewoman Yvonne Fletcher was shot outside the Libyan Embassy in London. Libya was held responsible for Yvonne Fletcher's death.Examination of the scientific evidence showed that the shot which killed Yvonne Fletcher could not have been fired from the Libyan Embassy, but only from Enserch House a few doors away. This building had links to the CIA.

December 8 2002

Palestinian security forces have arrested a group of Palestinians for collaborating with Israel and posing as operatives of Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda terrorist network, a senior official said yesterday.

The arrests come two days after Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon charged al-Qaeda militants were operating in Gaza and in Lebanon.

"The Palestinian Authority arrested a group of collaborators who confessed they were working for Israel, posing as al-Qaeda operatives in the Palestinian territories," said the official, on condition of anonymity.

He said the alleged collaborators sought to "discredit the Palestinian people, justify every Israeli crime and provide reasons to carry out a new (military) aggression in the Gaza Strip."

The Associated Press

ERWIN, Tenn. (AP) - Two Israeli men who led the Unicoi County sheriff on a high-speed chase in a rented moving truck were placed under arrest and are being investigated by the FBI, local officials said.

SHMUEL DAHAN and Almaliach Naor, both from Israel, were being held without bond Sunday afternoon at the Unicoi County Jail.

Once the men were apprehended, officers also found a "Learn to Fly" brochure in the truck, leading Harris and others to express concern about security at the Nuclear Fuel Services plant in Erwin.

"...the ’learn to fly in Florida’ business card is that of Nissan Giat, also an Israeli military veteran, he said, as well as a free-lance flight instructor in the Miami area, working out of the Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport."
