July 7th Timeline of Events

An introduction to the many and varied reports of what happened on July 7th. This is working document with regular updates.

11 September 2001

The Mayor of New York, Rudolph Giuliani, was organising a terror drill called Tripod II at New Yorks Pier 92.


6th July 2005
London awarded 2012 Olympics, leading to a mood of national jubilation G8 summit begins in Scotland, President Bush arrives at 3 pm. Mayor Giuliani, over from New York, spoke to UK councillors in Harrogate, Yorkshire, at a Local Government Association conference. He praised the war on terror being conducted by Bush and Blair and the importance of taking a tough stance on the matter. He then travelled down to London that evening, staying at a hotel at Liverpool Street near where the Aldgate tube bomb went off. The purpose of his visit remained undisclosed.

The Day of July 7th

Investigating the 7/7 attacks

No al-Qaeda link (duh!)

The official inquiry into the 7 July London bombings will say the attack was planned on a shoestring budget from information on the internet, that there was no 'fifth-bomber' and no direct support from al-Qaeda, although two of the bombers had visited Pakistan.

The first forensic account of the atrocity that claimed the lives of 52 people, which will be published in the next few weeks, will say that attacks were the product of a 'simple and inexpensive' plot hatched by four British suicide bombers bent on martyrdom.

Far from being the work of an international terror network, as originally suspected, the attack was carried out by four men who had scoured terror sites on the internet. Their knapsack bombs cost only a few hundred pounds, according to the first completed draft of the government's definitive report into the blasts.,,1750139,00.html

I think it was an international terror network...

77 unanswered questions concerning 7/7 :
by John Doe II

This list is not a conclusive judgement on the investigation as it is still ongoing but a list that will help measure the quality of the investigation. A real investigation should come up with answers to every single question. Presenting this list is also a way of documenting that the critical public follows the investigation very carefully and has all theses questions it wished to be answered. Contrary to most of the media who have apparently forgotten that asking questions was once the main aspect of investigative journalism.

1. On 7/7 it was reported that the first blast happened at 8:51 (Liverpool Street), the second at 8:56 (King?s Cross/Russell Square)and the third at 9:17 (Edgware Road).

Later this timeline was changed and it was said that the first three blasts happened within 50 seconds. The Metropolitan Police states: These timings are supported by software used by London Underground to monitor the lines.

Why did it take 2 whole days to realize that the timeline was completely wrong ?

2. On 7/7 it was noted 0924 British Transport Police say the incident was possibly caused by a collision between two trains, a power cut or a power cable exploding. Police report "walking wounded".

3. The given explanation for the wrong timeline was: They attributed the discrepancy to the fact that no one phoned in the explosion at the Edgware Road station as a bomb until 9:17 a.m. -- some 25 minutes after it actually occurred.

4. Taken for granted that in fact there was no possibility to inform anybody in the outside world then why was apparently the informing of the outside world possible immediately in the first blast, five minutes later for the second and 26 minutes for the third? Why the big discrepancies in this three cases?


77. It is claimed that the UK received some warnings prior to 7/7

And not to forget:
Why does Premier Tony Blair rule out a bomb inquiry?

7/7 and 9/11 : Too many parallels
by John Doe II

Every researcher of 911 must immediately have realized the many striking parallels between 9/11 and 7/7. Parallels not in the way the operation was done but striking parallels in many details that already for 911 raised suspicion.

Here a short list of the parallels:
(I won't give the sources for 911. They are well known. If anybody needs sources please let me know)

  • Exercises that took place before and show strong parallels to what actually happened:
  • Exercise taking place the same day:
  • One scenario in particular, was very similar to real time events.
  • Identification papers survive mysteriously:
  • Security Cameras that don't work:
  • Timeline disputes:
  • Return tickets:
  • Suspect was surveilled and then got lost:
  • Bomber was surveilled and then got lost:
  • Warnings:
  • No investigation:

  • Kingstar
    by The Antogonist

    Kingstar offer a number of other services, the most interesting of which, to the mind of The Antagonist, is that of "controlled demolition", more specifically:

    Kingstar a part of AMEC. See Pentagon. See "WTC" Controlled Cleanup.
