4. Could be several things going on...
Edited on Mon Jul-18-05 03:20 AM by madeline_con
It's possible that:

The guys didn't know they wouldn't get away, died so they couldn't be made to give info.

During the confusion, the cell phones were jammed. People reported being unable to make calls due to heavy volume. A person trying to detonate a bomb with a cell phone would be forced to keep trying, causing blast delay. He wouldn't give up, if he didn't want anyone involved to be left alive.

Not knowing for sure what caused the problem in the underground, it may have taken some time to ascertain, and then get through via cell or radio to other security staff.

Other possiblity: scramble for a CYA by British government. Different reporters using different sources for info.

>>"Based on evidence recovered from the rubble, investigators believe some of the bombs were on timers, a U.S. law enforcement official said."<<

The US sends Bushco employed guys to put spin on situation, he could be talking out of his ass.

EDIT added:

>>One local resident described him as "a nice lad".
"He liked to play football, he liked to play cricket. I'm shocked."
Another resident said he was just a "normal kid" who played basketball and kicked a ball around. <<

When do you ever hear anything but shock from those around a guy who does something nuts that kills a bunch of people?
