i found this link off an article on salon.com
"fears of terror attacks have prompted FBI agents based in the U.S. Embassy in London to avoid traveling on London's popular underground railway (or tube) system, which is used daily by millions of commuters. "

2. I heard Israeli Intelligence knew about the potential London attacks
...even before the British did, and then when the 1st bomb went off, the London police got in touch with the Israeli Embassy in London and that's when the Embassy actually was sealed off. Can anyone confirm this?

3. That story was debunked. Netanyahu was warned not to go to the site
of his speech AFTER the first explosion.

8. very interesting.
"Some U.S. law-enforcement officers based in London, NEWSWEEK has learned, have become extremely concerned about evidence regarding possible active Al Qaeda plots to attack targets in Britain. According to a U.S. government official, fears of terror attacks have prompted FBI agents based in the U.S. Embassy in London to avoid traveling on London's popular underground railway (or tube) system, which is used daily by millions of commuters. While embassy-based officers of the U.S. Secret Service, Immigration and Customs bureaus and the CIA still are believed to use the underground to go about their business, FBI agents have been known to turn up late to crosstown meetings because they insist on using taxis in London's traffic-choked business center."

12. Let me be the first: LIHOP
I've been right about everything else so far.....

Just like 9/11, we're letting this happen on purpose: Both the Boy King and the Brit are looking at tanking numbers. They will kill innocents in Iraq or at home. Makes little difference to them. Long as they keep their stinkin' jobs.
