London rocked by explosions

Two confirmed dead, toll expected to rise

Thursday, July 7, 2005; Posted: 9:33 a.m. EDT (13:33 GMT)
The wreckage of a bombed bus in central London.

LONDON, England (CNN) -- Four explosions in London's transport system have killed at least two people and wounded dozens more in what UK Prime Minister Tony Blair said was an apparent terrorist attack.

A previously unknown group, calling itself the Group of al-Qaeda of Jihad Organization in Europe laid claim to the blasts, posting a statement on an Islamist web site a few hours after the explosions. The claim could not be independently verified.

More fatalities were sure to follow -- emergency services personnel told CNN that a rescue operation at Kings Cross station had successfully evacuated all survivors, leaving dead below ground "in the double digits."

One worker said he had removed "several" bodies from the train and "at least 13" remained there. The fire brigade has now left the station, he said, and it was now a crime scene.

U.S. law enforcement sources said the British government has said at least 40 people are dead.

Three of the blasts took place in the city's subway system and one more hit a double-decker bus, all at the height of rush hour.

International SOS, an international medical emergency service, reported that the police had found explosive traces in at least one of four confirmed blast locations.

Hospital officials have reported at least 160 wounded. London transit officials shut down the entire Underground and stopped buses in the central city district.

"We are dealing with large numbers of casualties," he said, "and we believe a number of fatalities."

Blair, in Scotland where he is hosting the G8 summit, told reporters he would leave the summit for a "face to face" report in London and then return later in the evening.

"It's reasonably clear there have been a series of terrorist attacks in London," Blair said. "There are obviously casualties, both people that have died and peole that are seriously injured.

Blair said it was "also reasonably clear" that the attacks were timed to coincide with the opening of the summit.

"It's particularly barbaric that this has happened on a day when people are meeting to try to help the problems of proverty in Africa and the long-term problems with the environment," he said.

Just before leaving for London, Blair made a second statement, surrounded by the other leaders present at the conference.

"All of our countries have suffered from the impact of terrorism," he said. "Those responsible have no respect for human life. We are united in our resolve to confront and defeat this terrorism that is not an attack on one nation, but all nations and on civilized people everywhere."

President Bush was among the somber leaders who stood behind Blair as he spoke.

"We will not yield to these people, will not yield to the terrorists," he said in a short statement after Blair departed. "We will find them, we will bring them to justice, and at the same time we will spread an ideology of hope and compassion that will overwhelm their ideology of hate."

London Mayor Ken Livingstone said the blasts were "mass murder" carried out by terrorists bent on "indiscriminate ... slaughter."

Livingstone, in Singapore where he supported London's successful bid to host the 2012 Olympics, said: "I want to say one thing: This was not a terrorist attack against the mighty or the powerful, it is not aimed at presidents or prime ministers, it was aimed at ordinary working-class Londoners." (Full story)

The Web site claim of responsibility by al-Qaeda in Europe said the blasts were "in retalitation for the massacres Britain is committing in Iraq and Afghanistan."

"Here is Britain burning now out of fear and horror in its north, south east and west," the statement said, translated from Arabic by CNN. "We have often and repeatedly warned the British government and people." (Full story)

Despite calls from officials to stay home, Londoners were on the streets except in areas where they were barred by police.

Police cordoned off areas around six stations in and around the city's center and financial area and brought in sniffer dogs to check the areas.

Telephone traffic -- particularly by cell phone -- was nearly impossible. London's largest cellular provider, Vodaphone, said it had devoted much of its network to emergency services, causing the problems with subscribers.

London's police chief said the explosions, which began at about 8:50 a.m. (3:50 a.m. ET), certainly appeared coordinated.

One man, with blood streaming down the left side of his face from a wound on his temple, said he didn't "want to live through it again."

"I was in the front carriage and people were severely injured there," he said, dispassionately, adding that his train had been in the tunnel between Kings Cross and Russell Square. "I heard, but I don't know, that people were hurt worse further back. "Some people were very calm, others very panicky."

"There was a very loud bang, the lights went out, the carriage filled with smoke," he said. "We were all thrown forward."

Another man, clearly shaken by his experience, described being on a smoke-filled carriage on the same train, he and his fellow passengers afraid to try to leave the train.

"We were all trapped like sardines waiting to die," said Angelo Power. "I honestly thought I was going to die, as did everyone else."

A police spokesman urged Londoners to "stay where you are."

"There's no way to travel around London at the moment," he said.

"There is a London emergency plan," he said. "It has been put into effect. It is being coordinated by the Metropolitan Police, and that's about all I can say at the moment."

Scotland Yard sent out a notice saying that "public transport in London will be affected in the next few days."

Claire Burroughs, spokeswoman for St Mary's Hospital in central London, told CNN the hospital was on "major incident alert." Four patients were critically injured, eight were seriously injured and 14 others were being treated for minor injuries, she said.

"The types of injuries we are seeing include limb damage, burns, cuts, breaks, head injuries and chest problems due to smoke inhalation," Burroughs said.

London Hospital said it received 95 patients, most with minor injuries. Ten, however were listed in serious condition and seven in critical condition as well as "numerous with significant orthopedic injuries requiring immediate surgery."

Royal London Hospital, in east London near Aldgate station, said it had admitted 16 patients, 10 of them in critical condition. St. Bartholomew's hospital said it had treated and released 36 patients and had admitted two others.

CNN cameraman Oran O'Reilly said he has seen seven of the city's famed double-decker buses as well as police cars and ambulances arriving with casualties.

British Home Secretary Charles Clarke said the explosions took place between Russell Square and Kings Cross Underground; near the Moorgate, Aldgate and Liverpool Street stations Underground; and the Edgware Road station.

Police said a bomb was aboard one train at Edgware Road, but it exploded as another train was passing and hit that train as well.

The fourth explosion on a bus just outside Tavistock Hotel.

Jarvis Medhurst told CNN: "I was working at the Tavistock Hotel and a bus exploded literally 40 meters away from me. There was a massive explosion and a cloud of smoke, and then when the smoke stated to die down, you could see the wrecked bus, which was on fire.

"There were bodies everywhere. Heads and bits of bodies, heads and arms and legs all ripped away.

"There seemed to be kids lying around as well as adults. I'm just in shock, it's something I'll never forget."

London Metropolitan Police, British Transport Police and London's fire brigade are investigating, according to Scotland Yard.

O'Reilly, who was at Aldgate station, saw passengers coming out of it with signs of smoke inhalation -- black smudges around their mouths and noses.

"They're pushing people away from the tube (train) station," O'Reilly said. "Police are telling us to evacuate the street."

Also at Aldgate, CNN producer Roger Clark said he had seen people with blood running down their faces, with many others looking stunned.

An eyewitness who was on a train told Clark the car in front of him exploded and then the the train tunnel filed with smoke.

Prime Minister Blair Calls Terror Attacks 'Barbaric'

LONDON (July 7) - Three explosions rocked the London subway and one tore open a packed double-decker bus during the morning rush hour Thursday. The blasts killed at least 40, according to a U.S. law enforcement official, and injured more than 300 in what a shaken Prime Minister Tony Blair called a series of ''barbaric'' terrorist attacks.

The U.S. official spoke on condition of anonymity because British officials have yet to make public the death toll. U.S. authorities learned of the number from their British counterparts, according to the official.

Blair said it was clear the attacks were designed to coincide with the opening of the G-8 summit in Gleneagles, Scotland. The prime minister said the meeting of world leaders would continue but that he would return to London.

''Whatever they do, it is our determination that they will never succeed in destroying what we hold dear in this country and in other civilized nations throughout the world,'' said Blair.

A group calling itself ''The Secret Organization of al-Qaida in Europe'' posted a claim of responsibility for the blasts, saying they were in retaliation for Britain's involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Web statement, republished on the site of the German magazine Der Spiegel, could not be immediately confirmed.

Britain's Home Secretary Charles Clarke said there were three explosions in the subway and one on a bus. ''We do not know who or what organizations are responsible for these terrible criminal acts,'' Clarke said.

Officials at seven major hospitals surveyed by The Associated Press reported that 334 people had been wounded, including more than 120 who were treated and released.

Deputy Assistant Commissioner Brian Paddick said the figure was based on reports from the London Ambulance Service. Police have confirmed that there were some fatalities but had not confirmed any numbers by early afternoon.

The blasts came one day after London was awarded the 2012 Olympics. Giselle Davies, a spokeswoman for the International Olympic Committee, said the committee still had ''full confidence'' in London.

Bloodied and bandaged witnesses reported panicked crowds fleeing the blast sites. A witness at the bus explosion said the entire top deck of the bus was destroyed.

Sir Ian Blair, London's police chief, said he was concerned the explosions were a coordinated attack but said he wouldn't speculate on who was responsible. He said officials had found indications of explosives at one of the sites.

Police reported ''a number of fatalities'' at one London subway station. ''Things are still relatively confused,'' Superintendent John Morgan said.

Denying an earlier report, Israeli Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom said that Israel was not warned by Scotland Yard in advance of the blasts.

''We have been at a very high state of alert. Of course if there had been any kind of specific warnings we would have dealt with it,'' Blair said.

One witness, Darren Hall, said some passengers emerging from an evacuated subway station had soot and blood on their faces. He told BBC TV that he was evacuated along with others near the major King's Cross station and only afterward heard a blast.

Police confirmed an explosion destroyed a double-decker bus at Russell Square in central London.

Paul Woodrow, an official with the ambulance service, told reporters that rescue operations were ongoing and that ''there are large numbers of casualties.'' Officials at the Royal London Hospital told BBC that 95 injured had been brought into that hospital alone.

Jay Kumar, a business owner near the site of the bus blast, said he ran out of his shop when he heard a loud explosion. He said the top deck of the bus had collapsed, sending people tumbling to the floor.

Many appeared badly injured, and bloodied people ran from the scene.

''A big blast, a big bomb,'' he told The Associated Press. ''People were running this way panicked. They knew it was a bomb. Debris flying all over, mostly glass.''

''I was on the bus in front and heard an incredible bang, I turned round and half the double decker bus was in the air,'' Belinda Seabrook told Press Association, the British news agency.

Police said incidents were reported at the Aldgate station near the Liverpool Street railway terminal, Edgware Road and King's Cross in north London, Old Street in the financial district and Russell Square, near the British Museum.

Bradley Anderson, a subway passenger, told Sky News that ''there was some kind of explosion or something'' as his train reached the Edgware Road station in northeast London.

''Everything went black and we collided into some kind of oncoming train,'' Anderson said.

Simon Corvett, 26, who was on an eastbound train from Edgware Road station, said: ''All of sudden there was this massive huge bang.''

''It was absolutely deafening and all the windows shattered,'' he said. ''There were just loads of people screaming and the carriages filled with smoke.

''You could see the carriage opposite was completely gutted,'' he said. ''There were some people in real trouble.''

London's cell phone network was working after the explosions but was overloaded and spotty, limiting communication.

The explosions sent stocks plummeting in Europe, with several of the major indexes down 3 percent.

On March 11, 2004, terrorist bombs on four commuter trains in Madrid killed 191 people.

FROM WHAT HAS HAPPENED TODAY?

~~~~

THE WORST ACTOR IN POLITICS?

Today we have been subjected to the puke-making sight of Tony Blair 
faking emotion as only he can in his endless 'statements' about the London 
bombings. The rehearsed pauses, the pathetic looks to the side. just as 
he did with the death of Diana, the promises to Afghanistan that he 
would not abandon them after the invasion [as he has], and when he said 
how hard he had tried to avoid a war with Iraq that he knew had been 
agreed years earlier.

BUT KNOW THIS FAKE-EMOTION MAN. WE KNOW THAT YOU KNOW WHO WAS BEHIND 
THE LONDON BOMBINGS, JUST AS WE KNOW THAT BUSH KNEW WHO WAS RESPONSIBLE 
FOR 9/11.

THE TRUTH IS MOVING FASTER THAN YOU ARE, MR. BLAIR, AND THE DAY IS 
COMING WHEN IT WILL LOOK YOU IN THE EYE.

~~~~~

SO PREDICTABLE ....

As I have said in the books and have said so many times in the last few 
months, another terror attack was inevitable with London very high on 
the list.

There is an agenda to create an Orwellian global fascist state and with 
the blatant lies over Iraq exposed and the nightmare continuing daily 
in Iraq itself, the manipulators were losing momentum in the face of 
growing public skepticism.

Blair is now famous for his lies and genetic inability to tell the 
truth about anything. Bush is losing public support in America as the 
people also begin to understand the scale on which they have been misled.

Yet these two liars are front men for an agenda to impose a fascist 
police state that involves invading many more countries. How could they do 
that given their dissolving credibility ... unless ...

It was obvious that their masters would do what they always do in these 
situations - create a problem so they can offer the solution. They did 
it with 9/11, the Madrid bombing and now in London.

And it will not be the last because these guys are simply insane and, 
like cornered rats, they will do anything they believe to be necessary 
to implement their plans - no matter what that may mean in death and 
suffering.

Report: Israel Was Warned Ahead of First London Blast - Netanyahu Stays 
Away From Hotel Near First Explosion

(IsraelNN.com) Army Radio quoting unconfirmed reliable sources reported 
a short time ago that Scotland Yard had intelligence warnings of the 
attacks a short time before they occurred.

The Israeli Embassy in London was notified in advance, resulting in 
Finance Minister Binyamin Netanyahu remaining in his hotel room rather 
than making his way to the hotel adjacent to the site of the first 
explosion, a Liverpool Street train station, where he was to address and 
economic summit. At present, train and bus service in London have been 
suspended following the series of attacks. No terrorist organization has 
claimed responsibility at this time. Israeli officials stress the advanced 
Scotland Yard warning does not in any way indicate Israel was the 
target in the series of apparent terror attacks.

Fox News' Brian Kilmeade: London terror attack near G8 summit "works to ... Western world's advantage, for people to experience something like this together"

The following exchange between Fox News host Brian Kilmeade and Fox News business contributor and substitute host Stuart Varney occurred during breaking news coverage of the attacks on London subways and buses on the July 7 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends:

    KILMEADE: And he [British Prime Minister Tony Blair] made the statement, clearly shaken, but clearly determined. This is his second address in the last hour. First to the people of London, and now at the G8 summit, where their topic Number 1 --believe it or not-- was global warming, the second was African aid. And that was the first time since 9-11 when they should know, and they do know now, that
terrorism should be Number 1. But it's important for them all to be together. I think that works to our advantage, in the Western world's advantage, for people to experience something like this together,
just 500 miles from where the attacks have happened.

    VARNEY: It puts the Number 1 issue right back on the front burner right at the point where all these world leaders are meeting. It takes global warming off the front burner. It takes African aid off
the front burner. It sticks terrorism and the fight on the war on terror, right up front all over again.

    KILMEADE: Yeah.
Intelligence Officials Were Braced for an Offensive - but Lowered Threat Levels
    Richard Norton-Taylor and Duncan Campbell
    The Guardian UK

    Friday 08 July 2005

Group linked to al-Qaida cites UK's Iraq actions.

    A group of terrorists, affiliated or inspired by al-Qaida, carried out the series of coordinated bomb attacks in London, intelligence officials and independent analysts said yesterday.

    A group calling itself the Secret Organisation of the al-Qaida Jihad in Europe posted a claim of responsibility for the attacks, saying they were in retaliation for Britain's involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    The statement, which also threatened attacks in Italy and Denmark, was published on a website popular with Islamist militants, according to Elaph, a secular Arabic-language news website.

    "Rejoice, Islamic nation. Rejoice, Arab world. The time has come for vengeance against the Zionist crusader government of Britain in response to the massacres Britain committed in Iraq and Afghanistan," said the statement, which was translated by the Associated Press in Cairo.

    The authenticity of the message could not be immediately confirmed. The group al-Qaida in Europe claimed responsibility for the bombs that killed 191 people on commuter trains in Madrid in March last year.

    In yesterday's statement, the group said: "The heroic mujahideen carried out a blessed attack in London, and now Britain is burning with fear and terror, from north to south, east to west.

    "We warned the British government and the British people repeatedly. We have carried out our promise and carried out a military attack in Britain after great efforts by the heroic mujahideen over a long period to ensure its success.

    "We continue to warn the governments of Denmark and Italy and all crusader governments that they will receive the same punishment if they do not withdraw their troops from Iraq and Afghanistan."

    Security, intelligence and police chiefs have been braced for an attack on London, which they regarded as inevitable.

    But Whitehall's Joint Terrorist Analysis Centre (Jtac) last month reduced the threat level from al-Qaida terrorism, from "severe - general" to "substantial".

    The Guardian has learned that Jtac made the decision on the grounds that the al-Qaida leadership did not have the ability to order a coordinated attack in Britain. But that did not mean a group of individuals broadly sympathetic to al-Qaida did not have the ability to mount attacks on their own initiative.

    Jtac said many of its current concerns focused on individuals or groups "only loosely affiliated to al-Qaida or entirely autonomous".

    Security officials insisted that the downgrading of the threat level would not have affected the response of the police and emergency services.

    That was echoed yesterday by Mike Granatt, the former head of Whitehall's civil contingencies unit who now works with the communications consultancy Luther Pendragon. "The significance of threat levels should not be overstated," he said.

    Anti-terrorist officials said yesterday they had no intelligence suggesting there might be an attack to coincide with the G8 summit. The difficulty of obtaining specific intelligence was only recently emphasised by intelligence officials. "The Spanish authorities knew the bomber," said one, "but they didn't have any immediate evidence of a planned attack. We have plenty like that here."

    Another knowledgeable intelligence source said last week: "We keep on asking why there has been no terror outrage yet. We know it's bound to come."

    Jtac - which includes officials from MI5, MI6, GCHQ and the police - is now reassessing the threat. Both the police and MI5 have been increasingly alarmed by a steady trickle of young British Muslims travelling to Iraq to join insurgent operations. But the threat from them, they believe, would come later.

    "We have monitored some of them leaving, sometimes via France, but we haven't yet seen them returning," an intelligence source said last week. "Some of them have multiple identities, which makes them difficult to track."

    A senior Metropolitan police source said this week: "Some of them will have been killed out there." Others will have learned a variety of terror methods - including handling weapons and explosives - though not all of that would be relevant in London.

    MI5 has drawn up an extensive report on why young British Muslims become radicalised. As well as monitoring human traffic between Britain and Iraq they have been looking at the problem of young Muslims becoming indoctrinated in prison and elsewhere.

    There have been two distinct groups of people involved in planning the attacks in the UK: British-born young men, often educated and middle class, who may have volunteered for training in Afghanistan and who are prepared to risk jail or death to carry out an attack; and foreign citizens, including a number from north Africa, who see Britain as the next most important target after the US and use false identities to avoid being traced, blending in with existing immigrant communities.

    Police and anti-terrorist sources believe that there are around 30 or 40 of such people who have both the capability and the will to carry out attacks like those of yesterday. Some 200 have returned from training camps in Afghanistan, Chechnya, or Bosnia, and perhaps 1,000 sympathise with the notion of a "global jihad". The British-born operatives are seen as less effective and skilled and more easily identifiable. The police believed it was only a matter of time before an attempt was made to hit London. Two weeks ago Ken Jones, the chairman of the Association of Chief Police Officers terrorism committee and chief constable of Sussex, warned that the UK was at risk. "There is an inevitable targeting of the United Kingdom and UK interests abroad," he told a terrorism conference at the Royal United Services Institute. He said those planning such attacks were "highly intelligent, educated young people".

WAIT BEFORE YOU TOTALLY BELIEVE RUMSFELD, BUSH AND BLAIR...
     - telling us WHO were the "terrorists" that bombed London (Iraq, Madrid, Bali, New York, etc)...
----------------
     Please READ the following articles about insane Rumsfeld's secret army with its mission to "provoke" and "stimulate reactions" among "terrorist groups." How? By executing the Pentagon's own "secret military operations (assassinations, sabotage, 'deception') which would intentionally result in terrorist attacks on innocent people, including Americans -- essentially, to 'combat terrorism' BY CAUSING IT!"
     Contrived "False Flag" terror attacks to then be blamed on invented new MUSLIM "terrorist" groups.
----------------
 
    With Blair, Bush, Rumsfeld just revealed to be liars who secretly agreed to invade Iraq early in 2002, and their poll numbers falling, we should each be suspicious that this "convenient" new "terrorist" attack may have been "arranged" (by unnamed ? traitors) to renew 9/11 style FEAR and PANIC in the American and British publics.

     The Provocateur State:
Is the CIA Behind the Iraqi "Insurgents"
--and Global Terrorism?
by Frank Morales
WORLD WAR 4 REPORT, May 10, 2005
http://globalresearch.ca/articles/MOR505A.html
     Excerpts only...
     Back in 2002, following the trauma of 9-11, Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld predicted there would be more terrorist attacks against the American people and civilization at large. How could he be so sure of that?
     Perhaps because these attacks would be instigated on the order of the Honorable Mr. Rumsfeld. According to Los Angeles Times military analyst William Arkin, writing Oct. 27, 2002, Rumsfeld set out to create a secret army, "a super-Intelligence Support Activity" network that would "bring together CIA and military covert action, information warfare, intelligence, and cover and deception," to stir the pot of spiraling global violence.
     According to a classified document prepared for Rumsfeld by his Defense Science Board, the new organization--the "Proactive, Preemptive Operations Group (P2OG)"--would actually carry out secret missions designed to provoke terrorist groups into committing violent acts. The P2OG, a 100-member, so-called "counter-terrorist" organization with a $100-million-a-year budget, would ostensibly target "terrorist leaders," but according to P2OG documents procured by Arkin, would in fact carry out missions designed to "stimulate reactions" among "terrorist groups"--which, according to the Defense Secretary's logic, would subsequently expose them to "counter-attack" by the good guys. In other words, the plan is to execute secret military operations (assassinations, sabotage, "deception") which would intentionally result in terrorist attacks on innocent people, including Americans--essentially, to "combat terrorism" by causing it!

     SICK STRATEGIES FOR SENSELESS SLAUGHTER
- John Kaminski

May 24, 2005
     Excerpts only...
     The cat is out of the bag now. (In Iraq)
     Khadduri's report went like this:
     (1) "A few days ago, an American manned check point confiscated the driver license of a driver and told him to report to an American military camp near Baghdad airport for interrogation and in order to retrieve his license. The next day, the driver did visit the camp and he was allowed in the camp with his car. He was admitted to a room for an interrogation that lasted half an hour. At the end of the session, the American interrogator told him: 'OK, there is nothing against you, but you do know that Iraq is now sovereign and is in charge of its own affairs. Hence, we have forwarded your papers and license to al-Kadhimia police station for processing. Therefore, go there with this clearance to reclaim your license. At the police station, ask for Lt. Hussain Mohammed, who is waiting for you now. Go there now quickly, before he leaves his shift
     The driver did leave in a hurry, but was soon alarmed with a feeling that his car was driving as if carrying a heavy load, and he also became suspicious of a low flying helicopter that kept hovering overhead, as if trailing him. He stopped the car and inspected it carefully. He found nearly 100 kilograms of explosives hidden in the back seat and along the two back doors.
     The only feasible explanation for this incident is that the car was indeed booby trapped by the Americans and intended for the al-Khadimiya Shiite district of Baghdad. The helicopter was monitoring his movement and witnessing the anticipated "hideous attack by foreign elements".
      (2) On May 13, 2005, a 64 years old Iraqi farmer, Haj Haidar Abu Sijjad, took his tomato load in his pickup truck from Hilla to Baghdad, accompanied by Ali, his 11 years old grandson. They were stopped at an American check point and were asked to dismount.
     A minute later, his grandson told him that he saw one of the American soldiers putting a grey melon size object in the back among the tomato containers.
     He threw it in a deep ditch by the side of the road that was dug by Iraqi soldiers in preparation for the war, two years ago.
     "They intended it to explode in Baghdad and claim that it is the work of the 'terrorists', or 'insurgents' or who call themselves the 'Resistance'.

     Iraqi Slaughter Done By Resistance Or PsyWar Tactic?

     Excerpt only...
     Is it possible "bizarre psy-war operations" are under way in Iraq, especially now that Rumsfeld's Strategic Support Branch (SSB) has been "operating in secret for two years-in Iraq, Afghanistan and other places" (as the Washington Post reported in January)?
     Once again, qui bono enters the equation. Does the Iraqi resistance benefit from killing civilians-fellow Sunnis, or so we are told-or does the United States and its stage managed and emerging Shia government?
     Does it make sense for the Sunni-dominated resistance to kill its own base and grotesquely float dozens of their slaughtered bodies down the Tigris? No, it makes absolutely no sense whatsoever, that is unless the resistance wants to send the following message: we are brutal mass murderers who kill our own and for no reason beyond sheer mindless terror.

     Excerpts only...
     Israeli advisers are helping train US special forces in aggressive counter-insurgency operations in Iraq, including the use of assassination squads against guerrilla leaders, US intelligence and military sources said yesterday.
     US forces in Iraq's Sunni triangle have already begun to use tactics that echo Israeli operations in the occupied territories, sealing off centres of resistance with razor wire and razing buildings from where attacks have been launched against US troops.
     US special forces teams are already behind the lines inside Syria attempting to kill foreign jihadists before they cross the border, and a group focused on the "neutralisation" of guerrilla leaders is being set up, according to sources familiar with the operations.
     "This is basically an assassination programme. That is what is being conceptualised here. This is a hunter-killer team," said a former senior US intelligence official, who added that he feared the new tactics and enhanced cooperation with Israel would only inflame a volatile situation in the Middle East.
     "It is bonkers, insane. Here we are - we're already being compared to Sharon in the Arab world, and we've just confirmed it by bringing in the Israelis and setting up assassination teams."

     Excerpts only...
     In this regard, the creation, arming and financing of 'ethnic militias' and death squads by U.S. forces is designed to create ethnic divisions and provoke sectarian violence among Iraqis.
     These US sponsored militia groups are:
The Kurdish Peshmerga whose leaders supported the U.S. invasion and Occupation.
The Iranian-trained Badr Brigades,
The armed wing of the Supreme Council of the Islamic Revolution in Iraq (SCIRI) led by Ibrahim Al-Jaaferi of the Daνwa party,
The INC militia of Ahmed Chalabi, and the INA militia of Iyad Allawi.
    
All these groups are involved in terrorist activities against Iraqi civilians. The latter three groups, entered Iraq on the back of U.S. tanks, without valid Iraqi citizenship papers.
     The Kurdish militia are the Occupation's most loyal collaborators, receiving arms and money from their masters. Together with the occupying forces, they are responsible for wide scale atrocities in Iraqi towns and villages.
     Together with the Peshmerga, Israeli Mossad agents and U.S. forces, the militia groups went on systematic killings of thousands of prominent Iraqi academics, scientists, politicians and religious leaders. They also participated in the atrocity and total destruction of Fallujah, which is depicted as "the storming of Fallujah" in most mainstream media. The city was completely destroyed and still a λno go zoneν for Iraqis. Other Iraqi towns and cities have not escaped this deliberate destruction.

Thousands Evacuated From Birmingham Center

7-9-05

LONDON - Thousands of people evacuated from Birmingham's city center faced "a real and very credible threat," police Chief Constable Paul Scott said Sunday, while declining to describe the nature of the threat.

Some 20,000 people were evacuated Saturday night because intelligence information suggested a security threat, Scott said.

It was unclear whether the threat had any ties to Thursday's deadly terrorist attacks in London. Stuart Hyde, assistant chief constable of the West Midlands police, said Saturday night that there was no evidence linking the two.

The evacuation of the bustling Broad Street entertainment district and the city's Chinese quarter followed an intelligence warning of a "substantial threat," Hyde said.

A controlled explosion — designed to destroy a possible bomb — was carried out on a bus following a call from a member of the public, but officers concluded there was no explosive device on the bus.

Police initially restricted road traffic into the city center, but after receiving further intelligence they ordered an evacuation.

Birmingham, 110 miles northwest of London, was the target of one of the worst

Irish Republican Army bombings of the 1970s. Twenty-one people died when the IRA bombed two pubs on Nov. 21, 1974.

 

British Troops Blast Their Way Into Home

By THOMAS WAGNER, Associated Press Writer

LEEDS, England - Military officers blasted their way into a home in northern England Tuesday in what they said was a search for explosives, following a series of raids linked to last week's London bombings.

Police said 500 people were evacuated from the area and the streets were cordoned off. Hours earlier, police searched five residences elsewhere in Leeds, but there was no immediate word of any arrests.

The raids were the first in the massive investigation of the attacks that killed at least 52 people aboard three London underground trains and a bus. They could mark an important step forward in the case.

Police said military officers had carried out a controlled explosion so police could enter a home in the Burley neighborhood of Leeds to search for explosives as part of the bombing investigation.

Just a few miles away, police had earlier raided five homes as part of the massive terror probe.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Ian Blair declined to provide details about the raids, which began about 6:30 a.m.

"There have been a series of searches carried out in Yorkshire. Those searches are still going on. There's very little else I can say at the moment, but this activity is directly connected to the outrages on Thursday," Blair said in an interview with British Broadcasting Corp. radio.

 

London Probes Attackers' Deaths in Blasts

LEEDS, England - Police are investigating whether four attackers — possibly suicide bombers — died in last week's London subway and bus explosions and have arrested one suspect after a series of raids Tuesday in Leeds, a northern city with a strong Muslim community.

At least three of the suspected bombers came from the West Yorkshire region, which includes Leeds, said Peter Clarke, head of the Metropolitan Police anti-terrorist branch.

Closed-circuit TV video showed that all four had arrived at King's Cross station by 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, about 20 minutes before the blasts began that killed at least 52 people, Clarke said.

In a Scotland Yard news conference, Clarke said police had "strong forensic and other evidence" that the man believed to have carried a bomb onto the subway train that exploded between the Aldgate and Liverpool Street stations died in the blast, and they were awaiting confirmation from the coroner. Police were trying to determine whether the other three also died in the explosions.

Police, who had been saying there was no evidence of suicide bombings, indicated that there had been a breakthrough in their inquiry.

"The investigation quite early led us to have concerns about the movements and activities of four men, three of whom came from the West Yorkshire area. We are trying to establish their movements in the run-up to last week's attacks, and specifically to establish if they all died in the explosions," Clarke said.

One of the suspects had been reported missing by his family at 10 p.m. Thursday, and some of his property was found on the double-decker bus in which 13 died, Clarke said.

"We have now been able to establish that he was joined on his journey to London by three other men," he said.

Some witness accounts suggested the bus bomber may have blundered, blowing up the wrong target and accidentally killing himself. Media reports have quoted an eyewitness who got off the crowded bus just before it exploded as saying he saw an agitated man in his 20s fiddling anxiously with something in his bag.

"Everybody is standing face-to-face and this guy kept dipping into this bag," Richard Jones, 61, of Berkshire, told the BBC.

One theory suggested the attacker may have intended to leave his bomb on the subway but was unable to board because his coconspirators had already shut the system down.

Investigators also found personal documents bearing the names of two of the other men three near seats on the Aldgate and Edgware lines. Police did not identify the men.

Acting on six warrants stemming from those developments, British soldiers blasted their way into a modest Leeds row house Tuesday to search for explosives and computers. Streets were cordoned off and about 500 people were evacuated. Hours earlier, police searched five residences elsewhere in the city.

Leeds, about 185 miles north of London, has a population of about 715,000. About 15 percent of the residents are Muslim, and many come from a tight-knit Pakistani community, mostly from Murpir, south of Islamabad. Other pockets of the community are mostly Arab, coming from a variety of countries including

Syria and Saudi Arabia.

The military, including a bomb squad, carried out the controlled explosion at the row house at 11:30 a.m. so detectives could enter the home in Burley, a neighborhood where public signs in storefronts and even a Church of England community center are printed in English and Arabic.

There was no immediate word of arrests.

No one was in the house at the time of the raid, police Inspector Miles Himsworth. Detectives were scouring it for explosives and other items, possibly computers, he said.

Police also shut down a rail station in Luton, 30 miles north of London, and carried out a controlled explosion on a car they suspect is linked to the terrorist attacks. Metropolitan Police officers from London examining the car carried out the controlled explosion, Bedfordshire police said.

"It's a very, very complicated investigation," Himsworth said. "It will be a very slow and very meticulous search in order that any evidence that is there can be gathered carefully."

Cordons kept bystanders about 100 yards away from the house in Burley and police helped arrange prayers scheduled at a nearby mosque to be moved to other mosques nearby, Himsworth said.

Prime Minister

Tony Blair promised authorities would hunt relentlessly for the bombers. Police said their painstaking investigation was moving ahead, and warned that the death toll, which went from 49 to 52 on Monday, would rise. Some 700 were injured in the attacks; 56 of those remained hospitalized.

Blair went to City Hall on Tuesday and signed a condolence book for the victims.

"With deep condolences for all those who lost their lives and for their families who mourn and with heartfelt admiration for London, the greatest capital city in the world," Blair wrote.

The families of those missing since the bombings endured an agonizing wait for word of the fate of their loved ones.

"I need to know, I want to protect him," said Marie Fatayi-Williams, who arrived from Nigeria to find out what happened to her immigrant son, Anthony, 26. "How many tears shall we cry? How many mothers' hearts must be maimed? My heart is maimed at this moment."

The family of Michael Matsushita, a New Yorker who moved abroad in the spring of 2001, said it was likely he was dead. The 37-year-old left home Thursday to go to work and never returned.

"At this time, we've been told that there is virtually no possibility that he is alive," said David Golovner, a family spokesman. "We realize the police wouldn't have told us that unless they were certain. We have given up, basically, any sort of extravagant theories about how he might still be alive."

The names of two more victims were released Tuesday. The families of 30-year-old financial adviser Jamie Gordon and Philip Stuart Russell — whose 29th birthday would have been Monday — said the two men were on the No. 30 bus that exploded near Tavistock Square.

So far, the names of four of the dead have been released.

Forensics experts have said it could take days or weeks to identify the bodies, many of which were blown apart and would have to be identified through dental records or DNA analysis.

Ian Blair said forensic experts were scouring the tunnel where a bomb exploded aboard a Piccadilly line train, the deadliest of the four blasts. Police said they are also scrutinizing 2,500 closed-circuit TV video taken from cameras around the blast sites.

Authorities were analyzing 2,000 phone calls to a hot line and 115,000 calls to police.

"This is the biggest crime scene in England's history," Blair said. "They still have to get underneath the carriages, and it is possible they will find more" bodies.

Help came from abroad, too, as intelligence officials and detectives from some two dozen countries — including Spanish investigators who worked on the Madrid bombings — met over the weekend to discuss leads.

Public transit officials said the number of passengers using London's vast bus and subway network, which handles 3 million people on a typical day, was back to normal Monday.

Sales of bicycles have climbed since the bombings as workers look for alternatives to public transport, the capital's biggest cycle retailer said.

 

 

London Bombing
Strange Coincidences Suggest Cover-up


"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."
  -- Former Scotland Yard Official Peter Power on BBC, 7/7/05

July 13, 2005
Dear friends,

Many strange facts from highly credible sources are coming in regarding the recent London bombings. The most astonishing is the following conversation which took place the afternoon of the London bombing on BBC radio. The BBC host interviewed Peter Power, Managing Director of Visor Consultants, which bills itself as a 'crisis management' advice company. Peter Power was a former Scotland Yard official.

A Coincidence?

POWER: 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.

HOST: To get this quite straight, you were running an exercise to see how you would cope with this, and it happened while you were running the exercise?

POWER: Precisely, and it was about half past nine this morning. We planned this for a company, and for obvious reasons I don't want to reveal their name but they're listening and they'll know it. And we had a room full of crisis managers for the first time they'd met. And so within five minutes we made a pretty rapid decision that this is the real one, and so we went through the correct drills of activating crisis management procedures to jump from slow time to quick time thinking.

This audio clip is still available on the BBC website at:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/fivelive_aod.shtml?fivelive/drive_thu
To go directly to the above section, in the BBC Radio Player column on the left, click the >>15 min button at the top four times to fast forward to 17:04, where the statement is made. This clip will unfortunately be removed Thursday, July 14th, one week after the original broadcast.

Mr. Power repeats these statements on ITN television. The two-minute video clip is available at:
http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/july2005/110705bombingexercises.htm

Below is another excerpt on this matter from the website of CBC, Canada's public broadcasting TV network:
http://www.cbc.ca/sunday/#night

"CRISIS PLANNING: When there is an emergency like the London bombings, the public instinctively turns to professionals for help. We speak to two experts who are in Toronto today for the World Conference on Disaster Management. Adrian Gordon is the Executive Director of the Canadian Centre for Emergency Preparedness, and Peter Power is Managing Director of a London-based consulting firm that specializes in crisis management, Visor Consultants - which on the morning of July 7 was co-incidentally running a security exercise for a private firm, simulating multiple bomb explosions in the London Underground, at the same stations that were subsequently attacked in real life."

And here is a two-minute video clip on CBC of Power telling his story:
http://www.cbc.ca/MRL/clips/rm-lo/charles_disasters050711.rm

Why didn't these astounding statements draw front-page coverage both in the UK and US? And why is Peter Power now backtracking on some of his earlier comments? This situation is strikingly similar to a situation on 9/11 which should have made front-page headlines that was reported in the Boston Globe:
http://www.boston.com/news/packages/sept11/anniversary/wire_stories/0903_plane_exercise.htm

"In what the government describes as a bizarre coincidence, one U.S. intelligence agency was planning an exercise last Sept. 11 in which an errant aircraft would crash into one of its buildings. But the cause wasn't terrorism -- it was to be a simulated accident. Officials at the Chantilly, Va.-based National Reconnaissance Office [NRO] had scheduled an exercise that morning in which a small corporate jet would crash into one of the four towers at the agency's headquarters building after experiencing a mechanical failure. The agency is about four miles from the runways of Washington Dulles International Airport." [So it was just a short hop for the NRO team to run over and secure the Pentagon. And by the way, the NRO has a budget estimated to be three times that of the US State Department]

London Bombs of Military Origin

Reuters news service reports below on the explosives used in the London bombing:
http://today.reuters.com/news/newsArticle.aspx?type=topNews&amp;storyID=2005-07-11T122706Z_01_N11466902_RTRIDST_0_NEWS-SECURITY-BRITAIN-INTELLIGENCE-DC.XML

"'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."

The London Times has an article confirming this:
http://www.timesonline.co.uk/printFriendly/0,,1-20749-1690391-20749,00.html

"A SINGLE bombmaker using high-grade military explosives is believed to be responsible for building the four devices that killed more than 50 people last week, The Times can reveal. Similar components from the explosive devices have been found at all four murder sites, leading detectives to believe that each of the 10lb rucksack bombs was the work of one man. They also believe that the materials used were not home made but sophisticated military explosives, possibly smuggled into Britain from the Balkans."

Phony Al Qaeda Claims?

Then MSNBC informs us that the note posted on an alleged Al Qaeda-related website claiming responsibility for the bombings may be phony:
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/8496293/

"MSNBC TV translator Jacob Keryakes, who said that a copy of the message was later posted on a secular Web site, noted that the claim of responsibility contained an error in one of the Quranic verses it cited. That suggests that the claim may be phony, he said. 'This is not something al-Qaida would do,' he said."

Blair Opposes Probe Into Bombings?

And the highly respected Financial Times has an article titled: "Blair rejects calls for probe into bombings"
http://news.ft.com/cms/s/8186face-f17a-11d9-9c3e-00000e2511c8.html

"Tony Blair will on Monday reject Conservative demands for a government inquiry into last week's London bomb attacks, insisting such a move would distract from the task of catching the perpetrators."

Does this make any sense? Why wouldn't an investigation help to prevent something like this from happening again? Blair's stance is strikingly similar to the early opposition by both President Bush and Vice President Cheney to the establishment of an independent commission to probe 9/11"
http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2002/05/15/attack/main509096.shtml
http://www.wanttoknow.info/020204newsweek

"President Bush took a few minutes during his trip to Europe Thursday to voice his opposition to establishing a special commission to probe how the government dealt with terror warnings before Sept. 11."

"Cheney was calling to pre-emptively protest public hearings by other committees. If the Democrats insisted, Bush administration officials might say they're too busy running the war on terrorism to show up. Press the issue, Cheney implied, and you risk being accused of interfering with the mission."

You Can Make a Difference

Is it possible that there is more to these bombings that we are being led to believe? We have a wealth of information from highly reliable sources suggesting that, at the very least, 9/11 was consciously allowed to happen by certain elements within the government in order to forward the war agenda. You can find this revealing information with links to all original sources in our 9/11 Information Center at http://www.wanttoknow.info/911information

Please help to play the role at which our press is so sadly failing by spreading this important news to your friends and colleagues. By opening our eyes to what is going on and educating ourselves and those around us, we can and will build a critical mass which will force major changes and bring us back to a full democracy of the people, by the people, and for the people. Thanks for caring and you have a good day.

London Bombing Cover-up

 

London Underground Stations Evacuated, Police Say 

July 21, 2005 (Bloomberg) -- Three London Underground stations were evacuated following unspecified incidents, London police said. In addition, Archway and Moorgate stations were cleared.

``We can confirm that emergency service personnel are responding to reports of incidents at three locations on the London underground system,'' police spokeswoman Kirsten Ross said.

Three Underground lines have been suspended -- the Victoria, Northern and Hammersmith and City lines, the spokeswoman said.

The news follows a series of terrorist attacks that rocked the city on July 7, two weeks ago, killing 56 people. Police have identified four men they say were bombers in the incidents earlier this month. All of them died in the explosions.

Sky News also reported there was an incident on a bus in east London, without citing anyone.

 

Small blasts hit London transport

Thursday, July 21, 2005

LONDON, England (CNN) -- Three small devices have exploded at three separate Underground subway stations in London, two weeks after the July 7 terror attacks, police said.

Police said the small blasts happened at Warren Street, Oval and Shepherd's Bush stations.

Scotland Yard also responded to an "incident" on a bus at Hackney Road and Columbia Road in east London. The bus appeared to be intact and a witness said a bomb-sniffing dog was on the scene.

Bus operator Stagecoach said an explosion blew out the windows on the bus but there were no reports of injuries.

"The driver heard a bang he believed came from the upper desk of the bus. The windows were blown out. There are no reports of any injuries," a Stagecoach spokesman said.

Transport Police told ITN there was an injury when a device exploded on an Underground train near the Warren Street station. There are no other reports of casualties.

The area around the station has been sealed off and a bomb squad is on the scene to check for any other explosive devices.

All three stations were evacuated and the three affected Tube lines -- Hammersmith & City, Victoria and Northern -- have been closed, according to a spokesperson for Transport for London.

Police said they were not treating the evacuations as a "major incident."

Ambulances were called to Oval station at 12:38 p.m. (7:38 a.m. ET), and sent three vehicles. At 12:45 p.m., a call came in from Warren Street. Five vehicles were sent there.

The ambulance service had no details on the Shepherd's Bush station incident.

Bryce Elder, a witness near the Shepherd's Bush station, said there was a heavy police presence but "no real sense of panic."

Police helicopters flew overhead and areas near Shepherd's Bush station were evacuated. Elder said the station was not very busy.

CNN London producer Katie Turner reported a heavy police presence near the Oval station, including about 30 police vehicles. Roads about 500 meters from the station have been blocked off to vehicular traffic, she said.

A woman who was on the train at the Oval station when the incident happened said she did not hear a bang, but saw people pushing themselves into her carriage.

She said there was a general mood of panic, but the train was not packed. The train was moving when the incident happened.

Other people said they smelled sour smoke.

Prime Minister Tony Blair postponed a planned photocall with Australian Prime Minister John Howard, on an official visit to Britain and planned to make a speech later Thursday.

The White House said President George W. Bush has been informed of the incidents, which happened two weeks after the July 7 attacks on the London transit system, killing 52 people and four of the bombers.
