July 7 'Tube bomber' argued with cashier shortly before blast

http://news.independent.co.uk/uk/crime/article323476.ece

According to The Independent, 31 October 2005:

One of the (alleged) suicide bombers who (allegedly) attacked London on 7 July was filmed arguing with a cashier about being short-changed hours before he (allegedly) blew himself up.

Another of the terrorists - the teenager who (allegedly) destroyed a double-decker bus - was also captured on surveillance cameras wandering around the streets of London, "bumping into people", before (allegedly) detonating his rucksack bomb.

New details of the behaviour and last movements of the four (alleged) suicide bombers, who (allegedly) killed 52 people, were disclosed by a representative of the Metropolitan Police Anti-Terrorist Branch, the magazine Police Review has reported...

He warned traffic officers that the four (alleged) terrorists - Mohammad Sidique Khan, 30, Shehzad Tanweer, 22, Germaine Lindsay, 19, and Hasib Hussain, 18, - did not fit the preconceived terrorist profile.

Tanweer hired a Nissan Micra and is believed to have been used to bring the other two Leeds-based (alleged) terrorists, Hussain and Khan, to Luton railway station, from where they took the train into London (allegedly) for the bombing mission.

As an example the unnamed official told delegates that Tanweer argued with a cashier that he had been short changed, after stopping off at a petrol station on his way (allegedly) to the intended target in London.

The official told the seminar held in Preston, Lancashire two weeks ago: "This is not the behaviour of a terrorist - you'd think this is normal.

"Tanweer also played a game of cricket the night before he travelled down to London - now are these the actions of someone who is going to blow themselves up the next day?

"I've seen the CCTV footage of these people. They do not appear to be on their way to commit any crime at all. The Russell Square (alleged) bomber [Hasib Hussain] is actually seen going into shops and bumping into people [prior to his attack].

"We have been told in the past that the normal age [for a terrorist] is about 30 ... that profile is totally wrong."

Fresh details about the apparent confusion and disorientation of the youngest (alleged) bomber, Hussain, follows the disclosure that he left the Underground system and wandered around the King's Cross area - at one point he was filmed going into a McDonald's take-away - before (allegedly) setting off his bomb on a No 30 bus in Tavistock Square, killing 13, more than an hour after the other (alleged) terrorists had detonated their devices on the Tube trains.

Tanweer (allegedly) detonated a bomb on a Circle line train between Aldgate and Liverpool Street stations which killed seven people, including himself.

MOHAMMED SIDIQUE KHAN - Links to the security services.

The BBC seems to be spinning some tales on behalf of the security services?

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4375598.stm


According to the BBC, 7 July London bomber Mohammed Sidique Khan featured in a surveillance operation by intelligence services last year.

'Khan was secretly filmed and recorded speaking to a UK-based terror suspect, according to a well-placed source.'

The well placed source may be in the UK security services and may be trying to mislead us?

'A Radio 4 File on 4 and BBC Two Newsnight investigation also suggests he was in contact with al-Qaeda activists for the last five years.'

Al Qaeda is also known as al CIAda.

'The programme makers ... say that, if correct, it would amount to "a serious failure of intelligence" in the run up to the 7 July bombings.

'If true, the new information "would show the intelligence services had him well in their sights but allowed him to slip away", BBC correspondent Richard Watson said.

'Until now it had been thought that the plans of Khan, 30, from Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, had remained secret because he and the other bombers had no track record in terrorism and no traces by the intelligence services.'

Translation: too many people know that the security services knew about Khan long before 7 July 2005. Khan may have been working for the security services. So, now the excuse is that the security services were incompetent.

'A terror suspect held in connection with the 2002 Bali bombings has alleged that Khan travelled to Malaysia and the Philippines in 2001 to meet leaders of extremist Islamic group Jemaah Islamiah (JI), which is closely linked with al-Qaeda.'

This 'terror suspect' may be 'the CIA agent who was linked to the first Bali bomb attack'.
Allegedly, Kuwaiti citizen Omar Al-Faruq played a part in the Bali bomb plot. Al-Faruq was arrested in Bogor on June 5, 2002 and handed over to US authorities. Former Indonesian State Intelligence Coordinating Board (BAKIN) chief A.C. Manulang was quoted by Tempo as saying that Al-Faruq is a CIA-recruited agent.

'The BBC has interviewed academic researcher Dr Rohan Gunaratna who spoke to the Bali suspect after the London bombing.'

Gunaratna should not be taken seriously. He spouts the propaganda of the CIA. http://www.wsws.org/articles/2003/aug2003/guna-a08_prn.shtml

'The suspect said that, after Khan was hosted by notorious JI leader Hambali in Malaysia, he was taken to the Philippines to meet and train with other leaders of the group, suspected of carrying out a number of terror attacks including the Bali bombings of 2002 and 2005.

'And in 2003, Khan met with an Islamic extremist in Pakistan who has since confessed to supplying military equipment to al-Qaeda, the BBC has learned.'

Al Qaeda or al CIAda?

'The extremist, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is a US citizen from a Pakistani family from New York who travelled to Pakistan a week after the 11 September attacks.

'Khan and the man also saw each other together in Leeds in 2003, the BBC understands.

'"Mohammed Sidique Khan was running a strong cover with his work as a caring teaching assistant in Leeds," BBC correspondent Richard Watson said.

'"But a careful study of his background and contacts reveal a number of clues to his extremism which the British intelligence apparently missed."

File on 4, first broadcast on Radio 4 at 2000 BST on Tuesday 25 October. Repeated on Sunday 30 October at 1700 GMT.
Newsnight broadcast on BBC Two on Tuesday 25 October.

Khan is working for the security services?

~~

Mohammed Sidique Khan is alleged to be one of the July 7 London bombers.According to newspaper reports, Khan may have been 'arrested' in 2004 and then released.

Now al Jazeera has broadcast a video which claims to show Khan.

~~

There were reports of a bomb plot in Britain in 2004. Names linked to the plot have included Mohammed SidiqueKhan and Haroon Aswat.

Newsweek said Aswat was linked to the seizure of 590kg of ammonium nitrate fertiliser in Britain, which authorities believed was to be used to make bombs.

The French daily Libération reported that Khan had been one of the targets of a police operation in 2004.

Nicholas Sarkozy, the French interior minister, claimed that "a part of the team" behind the London blasts had been the subject of a counter-terrorism operation in 2004.

That remark appears to refer to Operation Crevice, a string of raids in 31 March 2004 that led to several men being arrested and charged under the Terrorism Act 2000.

From the Daily Mail:

Some of the suspected suicide bombers who attacked London on 7 July had been arrested in 2004 but freed in a bid to catch a wider network, French Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy has claimed.

"It seems that part of this team had been subject to partial arrest... in Spring 2004," Sarkozy told a news conference, reportedly quoting what British Home Secretary Charles Clarke had told an emergency meeting of EU justice and home affairs
ministers.

Khan is reported to have frequented the Finsbury Park Mosque in north London.

The imam of the Finsbury Park Mosque, Abu Hamza, is suspected by some of being linked to the British security services. Hamza's assistant was Haroon Aswat.

Haroon Rashid Aswat is reported to have made phonecalls to Khan.The investigation into the London bombings allegedly turned up Aswat's phone number during examination of the mobile telephone records of the four alleged bombers of July 7.

Sources said that days after the first explosions, around 20 phone calls were found to have been made from his mobile to some of the men who caused carnage on the London Underground and a bus in the capital.

Mr. Aswat was raised in Dewsbury, the same area where Mohammad Sidique Khan lived.The police have recently declared that they are NOT investigating Aswat in connection with the London bombings.

London 7/7 'accomplice' held

23/10/2005

London - British police said on Sunday they have arrested a man who reportedly said he was asked to join the group of suicide bombers who attacked London in July.

London's metropolitan police said anti-terrorist officers arrested a 27-year-old man in the Dewsbury area of West Yorkshire late on Saturday.

He was arrested on suspicion of the "commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism," a police spokesperson said.

He said the arrest was in connection with the investigation into the July 7 bombings that killed 52 commuters and four suicide attackers, and followed a report in the News of the World newspaper.

Former CIA Analyst: Government May Be Manufacturing Fake Terrorism

http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/october2005/191005McGovern.htm

The following is taken from:
Prisonplanet.com October 19 2005

Ray McGovern, former CIA Analyst during the Regan and Bush 41 regimes, joined Alex Jones on his daily radio show Monday 17th October as part of a round table discussion of issues surrounding the Iraq war and the "war on terror".

McGovern launched straight into the War in Iraq and suggested that over the last few months there has been a "sea change" in public opinion, and now over two thirds of Americans, according to major opinion polls, are against the war and can now see through the Neo-con Propaganda that so clouded their judgment in the lead up to the war.

McGovern went on to comment that there has built up an ignorant attitude amongst more well to do Americans that the troops dying everyday are expendable. There has been a shut down in the minds of people who cannot place themselves in the shoes of the families who's sons and fathers and brothers are being needlessly slaughtered for a corrupt elite agenda.

Mr McGovern stated that the war "has nothing to do with democracy or freedom or defending "our way of life", it is to do with enriching the pockets of those who support this administration."

Alex then put it to Mr McGovern that Congressman Ron Paul had recently been on the show and said that The Bush Administration was openly trying to set up a martial law police state in America.

McGovern responded in the affirmative:

"Well it does seem that those who have his (Bush's) ear are hell bent on giving away or providing wider responsibilities to our military. Witness what they are talking about now with giving the military primary responsibility for catastrophes, for hurricanes and so forth. Our military has been built up as an instrument of power but has never existed with this kind of potency before, and so we all need to look at this because there are laws against using the military in law enforcement capacities and we need to get to our Congressmen and Senators and say "look enough of this stuff."

McGovern then moved on to talk about terrorism and the fact that if there was another major attack in the US, it would mean a martial law state (According to General Tommy Franks) and a breakdown in our freedoms.

He amazingly went on to suggest that if another attack took place we should not accept what the government tells us because it could be them carrying out the terror.

"We have to be careful, if somebody does this kind of provocation, big violent explosions of some kind, we have to not take the word of the masters there in Washington that this was some terrorist event because it could well be a provocation allowing them, or seemingly to allow them to get what they want."

McGovern said he would not put it past the Government to "Play fast and loose" with terror alerts and warnings and even events themselves in order to rally people behind the flag.

Last week we revealed how a major terror alert in New York was outed as a fake, and magically boosted Mayor Bloomberg's ratings.

Mr McGovern then went on to reveal his opinions on the possible upcoming indictments within the Bush Administration, siding with the view that the truth will out and the Administration will come toppling down because of the way it has continually forged a bedrock of lies to justify the War In Iraq.

But he warned that we have to stay vigilant and continually expose the lies because we no longer have a free mainstream press. If we stop looking they will get away with anything they want.

Mr Govern Stressed that the founders wrote the Constitution with far sighted possibilities in mind, and we may now be at that juncture. The founders provided us with the ability to impeach any Government should it take away our liberties or any President, should he attempt to act like a King or an Emperor.

At this very moment we have a President about to veto a ban on torture. Even at the height of the British Empire torture was still outlawed because it was recognized as the pinnacle of human rights violations. What more does this Administration have to do before we remove it from power?

7 July London bomb survivors did not see any bombers or rucksacks

~

Survivors of 7 July London bombs fail to mention seeing bombers or rucksacks.

Kira Mason survived the 7 July 2005 London tube bombs.

She was in the compartment where allegedly Shehzad Tanweer blew himself up.

According to the Daily Mail, 8 October 2005, Kira must have been standing just a few feet away from Tanweer.

So what does Kira Mason say?

According to the Daily Mail, 8 October 2005, Kira says:

"I don't know what was pressing down on me - it could have been a body...

"Never in my wildest imagination did I think it was a bomb, let alone that I had been so close to it. I thought the train had been derailed and crashed...."

Note that there is no mention of a suicide bomber or a rucksack.

Martine Wright survived the 7 July London tube bombs. According to The Guardian, 26 September 2005, she kept a diary:

The only hint of anger towards the bombers comes in a diary entry she had forgotten she made.

It reads:

"The hole in the ceiling and the floor of the carriage apparently mark the place where the bastard suicide bomber blew himself up." Otherwise she makes no mention of the four men who attacked London on July 7.

Note that there is no mention of seeing a bomber or a rucksack.

De Menezes tapes 'prove police lied'

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20050929/ap_on_re_eu/britain_bombings

29 September 2005

The family of Jean Charles de Menezes, having watched videotapes of the shooting of Jean Charles, have said the tapes prove police lied about what happened.

De Menezes' brother, Giovani, said "The film showed that Jean did not have suspicious behavior. For sure they (police) lied to the family."

Harriet Wistrich, a lawyer representing the family, read a statement to reporters after Thursday's viewing of the videotapes.

"It was very distressing to see how completely relaxed and normal Jean Charles appeared, particularly in the light of statements made immediately after his death," the statement said.

Police and media reports had suggested that Menezes was acting suspiciously, wearing a bulky coat and had jumped the subway turnstile.

Images of the scene showed Menezes wearing a jean jacket. He was unarmed.
