British police lies on London bombings
Hello all, I thought you'd like to see this piece, I hope you find it useful:

In light of the fact that the police have lied about such a serious incident as the murder of Jean Charles de Menezes, it is important to note that the police have also lied about the circumstances surrounding the London bombings in July.

There were numerous reports in the week immediately following the 7th July London bombings, that the type of explosives used were of a military or commercial nature.

This report from Reuters was just one of those reports:

"The explosives appear to be of military origin, which is very worrying," said Christophe Chaboud, head of the French Anti-Terrorism Coordination Unit and one of five top officials sent by Paris to London immediately after Thursday's attacks.

"We're more used to cells making home-made explosives with chemicals. How did they get them?" he said in an interview with Le Monde newspaper.


A very good question.

There was also http://www.sciencedaily.com/upi/?feed=TopNews&article=U... ">this report</a>, from Science Daily, reporting that Scotland Yard had asked for european assistance, in finding out how those responsible could have obtained military explosives:

Scotland Yard has asked for European cooperation in finding how last week's London subway and bus bombers obtained military plastic explosives.

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.</blockquote>

And, as we reported here, at "A Logical Voice", the police repeatedly ruled out that homemade explosives were used in the 7th July bombings at their news conferences.

And, yet, regardless of the fact that the police were saying that evidence found at the actual crime scenes led them to completely rule out the use of homemade explosives in the 7th July bombings, raids on homes in Leeds seemed to change the Met Police's minds, because of the "discovery" of a bath filled with explosives.

By the 16th July, as http://news.scotsman.com/uk.cfm?id=1610072005 ">this article, from the Scotsman</a> reported, the police didn't seem to be at all interested in the source of those military explosives found at the crime scenes. Why not? Why had they determined that those military explosives, which the police quite obviously believed had been used in the bombings were no longer relevant to their inquiries? Who decided that?

The following day, our leaders made the highly unusual step of ruling out an inquiry into the bombings in London. Following such a terrible act as the London bombings, an inquiry would usually be the natural course of action. What are our leaders trying to hide? Why did the police blatently lie that those bombs used were home made, when they had completely ruled out home made explosives for a whole week following the 7th July London bombings, because of evidence found at the crime scenes?

These questions need to be answered and now! We all now know that undercover agents were arrested in Basra, in traditional Arab dress, carrying explosives and an anti tank missile last week. Wouldn't it be interesting to compare the type of explosives used on the 7th July, to the type used by undercover agents, of whatever nationality, who are running around Iraq planting bombs?

To fellow DUers, please help to spread this. Please feel free to post wherever you feel appropriate.

All the best.

1. Very True that it is lie that those bombs used were home made.
As to "why did the police blatantly lie that those bombs used were home made, when they had completely ruled out home made explosives for a whole week following the 7th July London bombings, because of evidence found at the crime scenes?" - I was unaware that the police had said anything like that,

As to comparing the type of explosive of the undercover agents arrested in Basra to the type used 7th July, what would that prove? We'd expect C-4 in both cases. C-4 is military but many military groups have it and the original question - how did the 7/7/05 bombers get it - is really the only interesting question.

It is very hard to get to your implied conclusion that Britain had its own military bomb itself.

2. Thanks for the reply
Glad that you at least would agree with me that the police have blatently lied. That in itself warrants close scrutiny wouldn't you agree? And yes, the police repeatedly stated that.

Indeed, as you've said, an important question raised would be how did those responsible for the bombings get hold of those explosives.

I actually stated of "whatever nationality", I didn't say British, or any other implied nationality. That would, of course be a matter for a full and proper inquiry, of course, we will not get one. But it is important to raise the issue don't you feel?

3. Notice also
how no-one has been arrested in connection with 7/7 and the media seems to have forgotten about it?

The "failed" bombings of 21/7 took the spotlight off it and provided the police with some people to arrest and shoot (although it turned out to be the wrong guy).
