GOVERNMENT LIES ABOUT TERRORISM
On 4 December 2008, relatives of Jean Charles de Menezes stood before his inquest jury wearing T-shirts saying: "Unlawful killing, your legal right to decide."
The dead man's cousins then walked out of the hearing.
Earlier the coroner, Sir Michael Wright, told the jury he was not going to allow them to consider unlawful killing as one of their verdict options.
He left the jury with two verdicts to consider: lawful killing and an open verdict.
Wright told the jurors that lawyers for the De Menezes family would no longer be present at the hearing.
"You will notice Mr Mansfield and Miss Hill and their instructing solicitors are no longer in their places," Wright said. (De Menezes family makes protest )
Jean Charles de Menezes was killed by agents of the UK state.
It could be argued that these agents of the state knew that de Menezes was an innocent man.
But, the De Menezes coroner has ruled out an unlawful killing verdict
"The jury at the inquest into the death of Jean Charles de Menezes will not be permitted to consider returning a verdict of unlawful killing, the coroner conducting the hearing said today.
"The coroner, former high court judge Sir Michael Wright, began summing up seven weeks of evidence by telling jurors they will only be allowed to return a verdict of lawful killing or an open verdict."
If the police and military had really thought de Menezes was a terrorist, they would have arrested him at his home (1) or as he walked to the bus stop (2) or after he got off the bus (3) and headed to the tube station.
At the inquest into the July 2005 murder of Jean Charles de Menezes at a London tube station, witnesses have stated that armed police fired on de Menezes without shouting any warning.
Menezes police 'gave no warning'
The police have consistently 'lied' about the murder of de Menezes, and there is a suspicion that the police and army knew de Menezes was an innocent man and that his killing was part of a 'strategy of terror' of the sort associated with Operation Gladio.
In the CIA-NATO's Operation Gladio, 'acts of terrorism were carried out in Italy' in order to keep certain parties in power.
Firearms officers had said de Menezes had moved towards them after they shouted warnings.
But Mrs de Menezes said outside the inquest: "None of the passengers heard the police give any warning or described Jean's actions as aggressive."
Rachel Wilson and her boyfriend Ralph Livock had been sitting opposite Mr de Menezes.
She told the inquest nothing had been said to alert her that the men were plain-clothes officers and that she initially thought they were just messing around.
Nicholas Hilliard QC, counsel to the inquest, asked her: "Specifically, did you ever hear anybody shout 'armed police'?"
Ms Wilson answered: "If I had heard that, I would have thought they were police, so no."
Mr Livock had told the inquest that their train was held up for longer than usual when four casually-dressed men with guns got on board.
Mr Hilliard asked: "Had you heard anything said about police?"
Mr Livock replied: "No, certainly not.
"I remember that specifically because one of the conversations that Rachel and I had afterwards was that we had no idea whether these were police, whether they were terrorists, whether they were somebody else.
"The thing that made me realise it wasn't a group of lads playing around or something else happening was when the first shot was fired."
Mr Livock described Mr de Menezes' reactions when an officer pointed a pistol at his head.
"He looked as if he was expecting somebody to say something but he didn't look frightened," said Mr Livock.
If the police and military had really thought de Menezes was a terrorist, they would have arrested him at his home or as he walked to the bus stop or after he got off the bus and headed to the tube station.
It is believed by some that a secretive government agency was behind the London Bombings.
Operation Northwoods was a Pentagon plan to kill innocent civilians in acts of terror.
NATO's Operation Gladio involved acts of false flag terror in Europe.
There has been speculation that all the recent terror incidents in Britain are part of a 'strategy of tension' similar to that which brought terror to Greece, Italy and Turkey in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.
If elements of the security services could catch and kill someone on the London Underground and then claim that this person was a Moslem terrorist, this would advance the fascist agenda.
It would support the idea that 9 11, the Bali Bombs, the Madrid Bombs and the London Bombs were the work of Moslem terrorists, rather than the work of the security services, using double agents and patsies.
When agents of the UK government shot dead the innocent Brazilian Jean Charles de Menezes, the police claimed that they had shot a dangerous terrorist.
It looks as if there were (at least) two groups who were involved in the pursuit of Jean Charles de Menezes:
1. The police
2. A shadowy military group
Senior sources in the Metropolitan Police told The Observer (21 August 2005) that
1. their surveillance officers felt that de Menezes was not about to detonate a bomb,
2. was not armed
3. and was not acting suspiciously.
A police source said: 'There is no way those three guys would have been on the train carriage with him [de Menezes] if they believed he was carrying a bomb. Nothing he did gave the surveillance team the impression that he was carrying a device.'
It was only when they were joined by 'armed officers' that things changed.
The Sunday Herald, which often has the best sources on security matters, tells us about the Special Reconnaissance Regiment (SRR).
http://www.sundayherald.com/51372 / AN INNOCENT MAN SHOT DEAD ON THE LONDON TUBE BY POLICE . . .SINCE ...
The Sunday Herald, 21 August 2005, tells us about the monitoring of the flat in Scotia Road, Tulse Hill, in south London.
The address was said to be linked to alleged bomber Hussein Osman.( Hussain Osman - arrested in Rome )
Among the surveillance team in Scotia Road was a soldier from a new “special forces” regiment -the Special Reconnaissance Regiment (SRR).
James Cusick, in the Sunday Herald, wrote:
"According to security sources, SRR personnel were involved in the tailing operation that saw de Menezes leave the block of flats, board a bus, and then enter the tube station at Stockwell. SRR personnel are also believed to have been on the tube train when he was shot.
"The SRR soldier at Scotia Road (given the codename Tango 10) used equipment which sent realtime pictures of all who came and went from the flats. Those receiving the pictures could check them against footage of who they were looking for. One security source said: 'In this kind of operation you never leave. You need to pee: you use a bottle; if there’s no bottle, tough. You never leave.'
"The police account says there is no footage of de Menezes leaving because the SRR soldier had to relieve himself. The police account says he sent out a message calling the man who left [de Menezes] an 'ICI' – a white northern European...
"Hussein Osman – arrested in Rome and scheduled for deportation to the UK within the next two months – was not an ICI. The CCTV footage of Osman the police held showed an Asian/north African male.
"De Menezes took a bus to Stockwell tube station, stopping briefly at Brixton...
"It is also understood that the senior police officer in charge of the operation, Commander Cressida Dick, had ordered de Menezes at this stage to be detained before he went into the tube station and that he should be alive...
"So why was de Menezes not stopped before the station?"
Apparently, both members of the police and the mysterious second group were on the train with de Menezes. It would appear that members of the mysterious second group murdered de Menezes.
"A security agency source contacted by the Sunday Herald said: 'This take-out is the signature of a special forces operation. It is not the way the police usually do things.... this has special forces written all over it.'”
The Sunday Herald points out:
"The initial post-mortem report into de Menezes’s death states the young Brazilian had 'vaulted over the ticket barrier'.
"A post-mortem report does not take its information from media reports. The police are contacted directly and written accounts are delivered. Details of the barrier being “vaulted” therefore came from the police. Why?
"And why at 4pm – five hours after the shooting – when the police would have known they had not killed Hussein Osman but a young Brazilian, did Sir Ian hold a press conference and insist that the shooting was 'directly linked' to the anti-terrorist operation?"

From the Observer, 21 August 2005:
"Questions have been raised about the accuracy of the police intelligence that led to the raid on the block of flats occupied by de Menezes. It was initially suggested that the flat was connected to the man known as Hussein Osman, who was arrested in Italy.
"On the Saturday after the shooting, officers raided the flat in a high-profile operation watched by the world's media. As a result, a man, identified only as 'C', was arrested 'on suspicion of the commission, instigation or preparation of acts of terrorism'. But he was released on 30 July with no charge, raising the possibility that the flats had no connection with the bombings."
Was there a plot to fool the public?
(http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/anthonylarkin.html / http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4706787.stm)
A passenger on the train, Anthony Larkin, told BBC News the man appeared to be wearing a "bomb belt with wires coming out".The 'man' was Brazilian Jean Charles de Menezes, who was shot by government agents.
Commuter Anthony Larkin, who was also on the train at Stockwell station, told 5 Live he saw police chasing a man.
"I saw these police officers in uniform and out of uniform shouting 'get down, get down', and I saw this guy who appeared to have a bomb belt and wires coming out and people were panicking and I heard two shots being fired."
Is the Anthony Larkin named above the same as the one named below?

Did elements of the security services hope to fool the public into thinking that the person who was shot was one of the 'bombers' such as Hussain Osman - arrested in Rome .
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.
Operation Gladio and the 'strategy of tension' in Italy beginning in 1969.
Operation Gladio was organised by 'fascists' within the security services of the West.
Reportedly, the idea was to kill innocent people and then blame this on others.
Gladio was about keeping the right-wing elite in power.
Gladio agent Vincenzo Vinciguerra stated, in sworn testimony:
'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.'
Italian Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti revealed the existence of Gladio in 1991.
Parliamentary investigations in Italy, Switzerland and Belgium have given us a little of the truth.
The book "NATO's Secret Armies: Operation Gladio and Terrorism in Western Europe," by Daniele Ganser documents some of what we know so far.
Run by fascist elements in NATO and Washington, right-wing militias carried out acts of terrorism and electoral subversion in states such as Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Turkey and West Germany.
Gladio was the name used in Italy. In Austria the name was Schwert, Belgium -Sdra 8, Britain - Stay Behind, France - Glaive, Greece -Operation Sheepskin, Holland, Sweden -Sveaborg, Switzerland -P26 and Turkey -Special War Department. [Source: "Operation Gladio." users.westnet.gr/~cgian/gladio.htm]
A Pentagon document, Field Manual FM 30-31B, details the methods for launching terrorist attacks.85 people were killed on August 2, 1980 in the bombing of the Bologna train station.
According to the Italian Senate, after its investigation in 2000, the bombers were later discovered to be "men inside Italian state institutions and ... men linked to the structures of United States intelligence."
The Bologna bomb was part of Gladio's " strategy of tension" - fomenting fear to keep populations in thrall to "strong leaders" who will protect the nation from the ever-present terrorist threat.
The beginning of the 'strategy of tension' in Italy came in Dec. 12, 1969 when a bomb exploded inside the Banca Nazionale dell' Agricoltura in Milan's Piazza Fontana. 16 people were killed and 58 wounded.
News - Europe - Italy probes 'parallel police' .
Who is this?
The Indian authorities claim that they have in custody one of the Mumbai gunmen responsible for the November 2008 attacks.
This 21 year old 'gunman' is Mohammad Ajmal Amir Iman, also known as Kasav, Qasab, Kamal, Kasab, Qasab, Qasam, Kasab, Kasar, and Kamaal (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ajmal_Amir)
Ajmal Amir seems to be being used to disguise the false-flag nature of the Mumbai Attacks.
The reports about Ajmal Amir are contradictory and confusing.
1. One moment we are told he stayed for several days at the Taj Hotel; the next moment we are told he got straight off a boat and started a killing spree.
(NDTV.com: Terrorists stayed in room 630, had many visitors)
2. There are reports that he had bullet wounds and reports that he did not have bullet wounds.
(No bullet hit Kasab, no active treatment on, says hospital's dean)
3. There are reports that one of his fellow gunmen was arrested at Cana Hospital and reports suggesting that nobody was arrested there.
(According to the BBC: "2120-2200: Gunmen raid the Cama and Albless Hospital ... One attacker is captured here." - (BBC NEWS South Asia Timeline: Mumbai under attack)
4. There are reports that Ajmal Amir speaks fluent English and reports that he is a rather illiterate and poorly educated criminal.
5. We are told that 8 gunmen were arrested and then we are told that only Ajmal Amir was arrested.
(“The Maharashtra Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh told Associated Press that two British-born Pakistanis were among the eight gunmen arrested by Indian authorities.” - Four Mumbai terrorists ‘had links with Britain’)
6. We are told that the gunmen at the railway station and elsewhere were white men and yet Ajmal Amir is reportedly from Pakistan.
(BBC NEWS Mumbai attackers create 'killing zone' / Mumbai Attackers were 'Hindus' and 'White Men' )
7. We are told that the gunmen who shot Karkare spoke Marathi and then we are told that it was Ajmal Amir and his Pakistani friend who shot Karkare.
(The Marathi daily 'Maharashtra Times' said the terrorists who targeted Anti Terrorism Squad chief Hemant Karkare were speaking Marathi fluently. (i.e. they were not from Pakistan) Reportedly, traditional Jews from Mumbai, who have migrated to Israel, speak fluent Marathi and are known to have been recruited by Mossad.)
There is doubt, therefore, that Ajmal Amir did the shooting that he is supposed to have done.
At what point may Ajmal Amir have been recruited by people from some group, such as Lashkar-e Taiba, who work for the CIA or Mossad or RAW or ISI or MI6?
Lashkar-e Taiba (LeT) took part in the Bosnian War against Serbia. (http://www.satp.org/satporgtp/lashkar_e_toiba.htm)
LeT is the Moslem group, operating in Jammu and Kashmir, that has been blamed for the Mumbai Attacks.
LeT reportedly has links to the Pakistan and UK intelligence services. (US and UK links to the terrorists in India and Pakistan)
Ajmal Amir is from a poor family in a poor village called Faridkot in Pakistan.
He went to school until age 13.
He left home after a fight with his father in 2005.
He then became involved in petty crime with his friend Muzaffar Lal Khan, soon moving on to armed robbery.
Reportedly, the security services like to employ criminals to do their dirty work.
In 2007, in Rawalpindi, Ajmal Amir and his friend decided to sign up for training with Lashkar-e-Taiba, ending up at their base camp, Markaz Taiba.
Initial reports suggested Ajmal Amir was fluent in English, and from a middle class background. (Father of gunman, Amir, 'paid by terrorists to hand him over')
Some sources said his father asked him to join Lashkar-e-Taiba so that he could use the money they gave him to run the family (Kasab says his father sent him to LeT )
Ajmal Amir is alleged to be among a group of 24 men who received training in marine warfare at a remote camp in mountainous Muzaffarabad in Pakistani-controlled Azad Kashmir. Part of the training is reported to have taken place on the Mangla Dam reservoir. (Rumours abound as inquiry begins its search for truth")
Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, a senior commander of the Lashkar-e-Taiba, reportedly offered to pay his family Rs.150,000 for his participation in the attacks. (Pakistan now holds the key to probe: investigators)
Another report said the 21-year old man was recruited from his Punjab, Pakistan home in part based on a pledge by recruiters to pay USD $1,250 US (Rs. 62,412.50) to his family when he became a martyr. Other sources put the reward to USD $4,000. (Bombs found in Mumbai train station a week later, National Public Radio, Mumbai Terrorist Wanted to 'Kill and Die' and Become Famous )
According to a media report citing an unnamed former Defence Department Official of the US, the intelligence agencies of the US had determined that the former officers from Pakistan’s Army and its powerful Inter-Services Intelligence agency assisted actively and continuously in training.
Reportedly Ajmal Amir said to his Indian captors: "We were told that our big brother India is so rich and we are dying of poverty and hunger. My father sells dahi wada on a stall in Lahore and we did not even get enough food to eat from his earnings. I was promised that once they knew that I was successful in my operation, they would give Rs 150,000 [almost USD 4,000] to my family)," said Qasab. (Mumbai Terrorist Wanted to Kill and Die and Become Famous, ABC News, 03-Dec-2008)
Reportedly Ajmal continued: "If you give me regular meals and money I will do the same for you that I did for them."
"When we asked whether he knew any verses from the Quran that described jihad, Ajmal Amir said he did not," police said. "In fact he did not know much about Islam or its tenets," according to a police source. (Mumbai Terrorist Wanted to Kill and Die and Become Famous, ABC News, 03-Dec-2008 )
"Please do not tell anyone that I am caught alive otherwise they will kill me. They had told us that they would shoot us if we ever returned to Pakistan", he said, according to the Asian Age, as quoted by ABC (USA). (Mumbai Terrorist Wanted to Kill and Die and Become Famous, ABC News, 03-Dec-2008 )
Reportedly, Ajmal Amir was captured on CCTV during his attacks at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus along with another terrorist, Ismail Khan.
Ajmal Amir reportedly told the police that they wanted to replicate the attack on Islamabad's Marriott hotel attack, and reduce the Taj Hotel to rubble, replicating the 9/11 attacks in India. (PLANNED 9/11 AT TAJ: CAUGHT TERRORIST)
Ajmal Amir and his accomplice Abu Dera Ismail Khan, age 25, attacked the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (Victoria Terminus) railway station.
They then moved on to attack a police vehicle at Cama Hospital, in which Maharashtra Anti Terrorism Squad Chief Hemant Karkare, was traveling.
Azam and Ismail Khan then drove towards Metro cinema and then towards Vidhan Bhavan.
Their vehicle had a tire puncture, so they stole a silver Škoda Laura and drove towards Girgaum Chowpatty. They met a police barricade on Marine Drive. Abu Ismail was killed and Ajmal Amir was captured.
Some reports said that Ajmal Amir was shot and had bullet wounds in his hand or both hands. (Sole Captured Suspect Offers Grim Insights Into Massacre )
There are other reports by doctors who treated him that he had no bullet wounds. (No bullet hit Kasab, no active treatment on, says hospital's dean)
Ajmal Amir disclosed the location of a fishing trawler, MV Kuber, that the gunmen reportedly used to enter Mumbai's coastal waters. He also told investigators where they would find the ship captain's body, a satellite phone and a global-positioning device. (Sole captured suspect offers grim insights into massacre, 2008)
It is reported that Ajmal Amir told the police that he and his associate, Ismail Khan, were the ones who shot Anti-Terror Squad chief Hemant Karkare, encounter specialist Vijay Salaskar and Additional Commissioner Ashok Kamte.
Reportedly, Ajmal Amir told the police he entered the Taj Hotel posing as a student from Mauritius and stored explosives in a room. (Arrested terrorist reveals all to police)
Ajmal Amir reportedly revealed that he and his associate stayed in Room 630 in the Taj Mahal Palace hotel and had many visitors. They had booked the room for four days using fake Mauritian identities. (NDTV.com: Terrorists stayed in room 630, had many visitors)
On November 29, Ajmal Amir named his colleagues as Abu Ali, Fahad, Omar, Shoaib, Umer, Abu Akasha, Abu Ismail Dera Ismail Khan, Abdul Rahman (Bara), and Abdul Rahman.
Reportedly Ajmal Amir has told his interrogators that their plan was to get off the dinghy near the fishing village at Badhwar Park, Cuffe Parade, at dusk and strike all targets except Nariman House between 19:00 and 20:00. However, the landing was delayed and they arrived at 20.45. (We wanted to hit CST at peak hour, says arrested terrorist)
