Analysis: London bombings & coverup


Richard Moore


As the evidence continues to come in, I think there is little
doubt remaining: the London bombings were indeed a covert
intelligence operation, mimicking many the tactics used on
9-11, and serving a variety of political purposes.

In my first report, I mentioned that Binyamin Netanyahu had
been warned not to travel prior to the first blast, as his
route would have taken him close to one of the targets. Here's
more on that bit of evidence, excerpted from
    Unanswered questions in London bombings 

            A report published by the Associated Press (AP) at 12:16 p.m.
            on July 7, authored by Amy Teibel in Jerusalem, stated,
            "British police told the Israeli Embassy in London minutes
            before Thursday's explosions that they had received warnings
            of possible terror attacks in the city, a senior Israeli
            official said."
            "Just before the blasts, Scotland Yard called the security
            officer at the Israeli Embassy to say they had received
            warnings of possible attacks, the official said. He did not
            say whether British police made any link to the economic
            Within hours, the original Associated Press report had been
            removed, following denials by Israeli officials in Tel Aviv
            and London. But the report had already been taken up by
            numerous publications internationally. AP replaced its
            original article with another, headlined, "Israel 'Not Warned'
            about London Attacks."

A more solid piece of evidence involves a security exercise
that was being carried out at the time of the explosions. 
Here are excerpts from
    London Bombings - Web of Deceit: Peter Power, The Terror Drill, 
    Giuliani and The CIA 

            On a BBC Radio 5 interview that aired on the evening of the
            7th, the host interviewed Peter Power, a former Scotland Yard
            official, working at one time with the Anti Terrorist Branch,
            now Managing Director of Visor Consultants, which bills itself
            as a 'crisis management' advice company.
            Power was quoted as saying "At half past nine this morning we
            were actually running an exercise for a company of over a
            thousand people in London based on simultaneous bombs going
            off precisely at the railway stations where it happened this
            morning, so I still have the hairs on the back of my neck
            standing up right now"
            Beyond the unbelievable "coincidence" of this scenario, the
            very fact that the bombs in the drill were simultaneous is a
            smoking gun because almost a week went by before it was
            revealed that the bombs had gone off simultaneously.
            The importance of this drill cannot be understated. This is
            precisely what happened on the morning of 9/11/2001. The CIA
            was conducting drills of flying hijacked planes into the WTC
            and Pentagon at 8:30 in the morning. The two scenarios are
            comparable in that it is a tried and tested method of
            navigating around the everyday security services, and, more
            importantly, if the perpetrators get caught during the attack
            or after with any incriminating evidence they can just claim
            that they were just taking part in an exercise.
As you would expect, the interview is no longer on the BBC
website. A recording is available, however, on
    The 7/7 London Bombings: How to Set Up a Patsy

The fact of the "coincidental" exercise is already suspicious
enough, but perhaps more damning is the fact that the
existence of the exercise is being covered up, i.e. receiving
no further mention whatever in the media. If the exercise and the
bombings really were coincidental, then there would be no
reason not to report the story, which would obviously be very
newsworthy. Given the exercise, and its coverup, then it seems
rather clear that the purpose of the exercise was to provide a
context in which to carry out the false-flag operation. Peter
Power was evidently not in-the-know, and happened to be
interviewed before anyone remembered to tell him to keep

Let's next take into account the four alleged terrorists.
These lads in no way fit any terrorist profile. And if they
had been suicide bombers, and involved in such a sophisticated
operations, with military explosives and all, then there is no
way they would carry a wallet full of IDs and allow themselves
to show up on camera together. Nor would they buy round-trip
tickets and put pay-and-ride tickets on their windshields.
Here's an article about them, including interviews with
parents. One of the parents says his son certainly did not travel to 
Afghanistan, as the police claim:  "There is no way, I have seen his 
passport," he said.

The probable scenario begins now to come into focus. Most
likely the four lads, basically innocent and naive, were hired
and told they were to take part in the exercise. Their job,
they were told, was to carry fake explosives into the
undergound, to see if normal security measures would manage to
stop them. If they did make it into the tube, they were to
leave the knapsacks behind and their job would be over. It
would make sense to the lads, and they would understand why
Muslims had been chosen for such a test. Unbeknownst to them
however, the explosives were not fake, and the charges were
either on timers, or more likely, could be detonated remotely
- giving more flexibility in case the operation wasn't
proceeding exactly on schedule. The four lads provided a means
of delivering the explosives, and afterwards they served as
the perfect perpetrators: "Watch out Britain, even the most
innocent looking Muslims in your midst might be dangerous

At this point, I must give fair dues to the superior subtlety
of British mainstream propaganda, as compared to the
simple-minded American variety. In the case of 9/11, we got
one official story, with no evidence to back it up, and then
they stuck to it. The story is so full of holes that 50% of
Manhattan residents don't believe it. The Brits, on the other
hand, keep refining their story, partly so that it seems like
a real investigation is going on, and partly to tune their
damage control, based on public reactions. As a consequence,
they do a much better job of fooling most of the people all 
of the time.

In particular, given the obvious problems with the 'suicide bomber'
story, the official story is now shifting to a scenario very
similar to the one I outlined, except they are claiming it was
some 'mastermind terrorist' handling the remote detonators rather
than British Intelligence:

Here's one more evidential item, and then we'll move on to the
political objectives of the operation. At the bottom of this
posting, I'll give you a whole list of URLs, each with a brief
excerpt so you'll know what it's about. We can expect lots more
evidence to emerge, just as it has with 9/11, but there comes
a point where we'd just be playing Conspiracy Trivial Pursuits,
if we spent too much time on such details.
"London Stagecoach Employee Says Bus Bombing Suspicious"

            The driver notes the following about CCTV maintainence.
                "CCTV gets maintained at least 2 or 3 times a week and can
            digitally store upto 2 whole weeks worth of footage. this is
            done by a private contractor....So when I heard that the CCTV
            wasn't working on a vehicle that's no more than 2 years old
            since last June.....I'm sorry that's rubbish, I work for the
            company I know different."
                Also a point of interest....last saturday a contractor came to
            inspect the CCTV on the buses at the depot, According to my
            supervisor the person spent more than 20 hours over that
            weekend, 20 hours to see if the CCTV is working? Also that
            person who came was not a regular contractor, for security
            reasons the same few people always come to the depot to carry
            out work, this time it was different.

* Mission Objectives

Whenever this kind of false-flag operation is carried out,
there are always multiple objectives. It's kind of like a
space shuttle shot - lots of people have a package they want
included on any given mission, and missions are relatively
infrequent. Same for major false-flag events.

Hence in the Oklahoma City bombing, we had both the
demonization of America's Militia movement, and the passage of
an "anti-terrorism" (i.e, pro-fascism) bill. With the Omagh
bombing, we had the undermining of Sinn Fein, a stalling of
the Peace Process in British-occupied Northern Ireland, and an
"anti-terrorism" bill in the Republic of Ireland. With 9/11,
we got "anti-terrorist Homeland Security" (i.e., the Neo
Gestapo), the sidelining of the anti-globalization movement,
and a carte blanche for global military conquest. The more
packages that can be carried on board, the more payoff from
a given operation / mission.

Once a choice is made regarding which packages to include,
then the timing of the incident must take them all into
account, even the minor ones. Thus it would be fair to say
that the London bombings were timed to submerge discussion of
the Downing Street Memos, but that does not mean the memos
were the most important package on the mission, i.e. the main
reason for the operation. Similarly, Live 8 was mainly about
building support for policies which will lead to increased
economic exploitation and greater world hunger, but the event
was timed to submerge coverage of the anti-G8 demonstrations,
a secondary objective.

With typical British competence, the London bombing mission
carried quite a few packages on board. Here are the ones I can
think of at the moment:

            - The Downing Street Memos are no longer news.
            - Growing anti-war sentiment in the UK has been in effect
            - Blair's declining popularity has been forgotten.
            - A systematic project has been launched  to characterize the
               Muslim Community as a "problem community", which needs
               help to overcome its "fanatical elements". Even the Muslim
               leaders are going along with the program! You've got to hand it
               to the Brits when it comes to propaganda and social control. 
            - Washington used the event to push along the latest pieces of
               fascist legislation.
            - New "anti-terrorist" initiatives are being undertaken at the
               EU level.
            - Major "anti-terrorist" legislation is already being
               negotiated in Parliament.

           - As with 9/11, the UK population is now conditioned to accept 
              the principle of trading "freedom for security".
            - Perhaps still to come: the Iran connection! - keep your eyes
               open for this one. It could turn out to be the primary package.

As regards the Iran connection, consider this: If the UK joins
the U.S. in an attack on Iran, that would be considerably
better from a global propaganda point of view - as compared to
a unilateral U.S. attack, or one joined only by Israel.
Indeed, I think UK collaboration would be seen as a
requirement, and this principle has proven its importance in

Besides, all of this post-9/11 stuff is simply a continuation
of the long-term, Anglo-U.S., Wall Street-The City,
financial-oil-imperialism alliance that we've been discussing
in our series on the Engdahl material.

Britain needs to continue to make its contribution to the
alliance projects, if The City wants to retain the financial
position it gains by that alliance. Iran is clearly the next
major target in the expansionist agenda. If nothing else, the
London bombing project moves UK public opinion in a direction
that makes easier any UK decision to collaborate re/ Iran or
any other "anti-terrorist" engagement. If a specific Iran
connection can be developed around the bombings, that would
greatly enhance the overall payoff of the project. And such a
connection would be very easy to make - after all, they never
show us the evidence, for "security reasons"; they can claim
anything they want, as they routinely do. And they could easily
have involved genuine Iranian operatives at some indirect level; 
the CIA, MI6 and Mossad certainly have lots of those on their payrolls.

My guess is that the Iran connection will be developed. I've
already seen some signs. It's being delayed a bit, so as to
make it seem more credible - an "unexpected discovery based on
excellent Intelligence work." Public opinion in the U.S. and
UK will be subtly pushed toward support for an Iranian
offensive, while leaders will argue for restraint. The stage
will be set. Then will come the next major "terrorist outrage"
in the U.S., with Iran instantly blamed, and the attack on Iran 
can begin - with the UK carefully set up to play its role.

      U.S. hoping London blasts will unite West
U.S. policymakers are working this week to hammer home the
Bush administration's perspective on last week's bombings in
London, a view that emphasizes the bloodthirsty nature of
al-Qaida, the necessity of re-examining long-established
notions of law enforcement and the longer-term importance of
bringing democracy to the Islamic world, beginning in Iraq.
