way to bomb the No. 30 bus at Londons Tavistock Square
and thereafter to meet Allah in Paradise Hasib Hussain stopped
off at the Scottish family restaurant to buy a Big Mac. This fascinating
new revelation about the 7/7 bombings comes from yet another of those
anonymous sources deep inside the police investigation, by way of The
Independent (Thursday 25 August), a newspaper I once held in some
Hasibs mundane act of gustatory desperation doesnt seem
to square with the picture of a fanatical Islamic terrorist on a mission
to send as many infidels as possible to their doom. If hed hung
out for half an hour the 18-year-old alleged jihadi could have asked
the houris for a whole feast (and much else besides), but apparently
he couldnt resist the lure of the Quarter Pounder. It is as though,
in his last hour on this mortal, corrupt, coil, he suddenly wondered
with horror whether Paradise might be strictly vegetarian. Nuts. If
you believe buying a Big Mac was the act of a man certain he was soon
going to A Better Place, I have a Russian watch to sell you.
Independents intrepid scribblers, Jason Bennetto and Kim Sengupta,
didnt see it that way. To them the little scoop was somehow more
proof of the always off-the-record official position that
the bombing was the work of an unaffiliated, spontaneously-forming,
self-acting jihadi cell. They also insisted that Hussains choice
of the bus had nothing to do with problems on the tube because he could
have reached his supposed destination by other rail options and they
denied previous definitive assertions that mobile phones had been used
to detonate the bombs with a disclosure (that journalistic
whore-word): the bombers pressed a button to detonate the bombs. Oh
yeah, really. That line has been on and off like a whores knickers
since about 8/7 but always off the record.
there was more. The Independent was also able to tell us that
Hussain made a number of phone calls at least one
to one of his fellow bombers and that he may also have spoken
to the other two bombers. Come on guys, if theyre talking
about phone records the only certain way of knowing either
he called or he didnt.
before The Independent prostituted itself to the police leakers,
the London Evening Standards very own anonymous source
inside the investigation had come on with a line completely different
to The Independents man (Wednesday 24 August): Hussain
had planned to detonate his bomb on a train but was forced by the closure
of the Northern Line to take out the bus instead.
Standard tells it, Hussain phoned his accomplices with increasing
panic, failed to get a reply, and then made his
snap decision to bomb the bus. Oh really? How did the police
arrive at this psychological insight? Its easy to establish, from
phone company records, from and to, which number a call has been made,
and exactly when, but this PI has never seen a panic rating on a phone
company printout. And note that while The Independents
source implies that Hussain may actually have spoken to
his fellow bombers, the Standard scribblers think he didnt
get a reply because they were already dead. Well which was it?
We know that the three train bombs exploded at 8.50 am. Were Hussains
calls before or after 8.50? And the printout tells you the exact time
of his calls. Simple.
way the cops could tell that Hussains calls were panicky is if
he left a message on the recipients answering service. Is that
what theyre saying? Id love to see a transcript. Or is the
nameless source saying that police had been recording the alleged bombers
conversations on 7/7? Now that would put a whole nother face on
what was really going on that day! And if they had been recording his
conversations, the crime would have been solved within hours. Indeed,
it might have been prevented.
possible alternative is that somebody close by was watching and listening
to Hussain make the calls. But how could the watcher be sure Hussain
was panicking if he couldnt get an answer?
does the British media find the journalists who write this
crap? People wholl accept whatever lame garbage their trusted
anonymous source tells them and whatever dumb spin he puts on it; people
who never ask the most basic and obvious questions?
Lets face it honestly: the overwhelmingly more likely scenario
is that if Hasib Hussain did phone his friends he did so because he
had heard from people streaming out of the tube that there had been
explosions, or big trouble of some sort. He phoned them because he was
worried. If he really was a suicide bomber, and not a dupe, why would
he need to check up on them? He would have known that his confreres
had accomplished their mission and gone to meet Allah. The fact that
he rang them is, in fact, more proof that the bombers were innocent
dupes who were asked to deliver packages, knowing nothing of their real
nature and purpose, or believed they were merely actors in a security
this investigation is taken out of the hands of the secretive, dissembling,
politically-motivated cops who are currently running it and dragged
into the light of day by a full-scale public inquiry, the truth will
never be known.
duped the London bombers?
By GAVIN GATENBY
18 July 2005
Citing police and MI5 sources, The Mirror.co.uk, a mainstream British
internet publication, has now admitted the probability that the four
London bombers were in some way duped by a master bomber . This theory
has been widely reported internationally (for example by the Sydney
Morning Herald, 18 July 2005).
In the Mirrors scenario the master bomber cynically tricked his
team into thinking that when they pressed the button, they were setting
off a timing device that would give them sufficient time to leave the
target area. Instead, they pressed the buttons, detonated the bombs
and killed themselves as well as their victims. ...
There are considerable problems with the version of the dupes scenario
publicized by the Mirror. READ

Was the armed team ordered to kill Hussain Osman because
he knew too much?
By GAVIN GATENBY
20 August 2005
Either the highly-trained firearms team was actually composed of psychopaths
so eager to actually kill somebody that they collectively threw away
any opportunity to exercise judgement on whether Osman/de Menezes presented
a danger to the public or we must conclude that they were under orders
to kill the subject regardless.
And the only logical reason for killing Osman is that whoever arranged
the killing knew that whatever Osman might have said under interrogation
would lead to the conclusion that the failed 21/7 bombings
and possibly the 7/7 bombings were false flag operations. READ

Its been fascinating to watch , from afar, the development of
the London bombings investigation.
There are really two investigations: the official police probe and,
in a parallel universe, the media investigation which is the
important one. Check the actual news releases on the London Metropolitan
Police website, and youll find precious little: On 7 July three
bombs exploded on London trains and one on a bus; something to do with
four young Islamic chaps, apparently; many dead; the suspects seem to
have died in the explosions; public asked to help ... Thats Scotland
Yard for you: all British reserve; guarded and imprecise; cards played
close to the chest. READ
