Several more issues are surfacing in the official investigation into the London bombings.
First, here is a brief excerpt from an AP piece:

...Detectives on Saturday revised their initial timeline of events, ascertaining from a review of the subways' computer and electrical systems that the bombings on three Underground trains occurred within a minute of one another, at 8:50 a.m., not over a 26-minute span as they had initially thought.
...Four young men [the bombers] carrying backpacks chatted casually in King's Cross station at about 8:30 a.m. - 20 minutes before the subway explosions - then separated. At rush hour in the busy station, a major hub for north London, they would have attracted little notice.
end AP excerpt
Someone who lives in London and is familiar with the underground system there should be able to answer the following question:
Given the locations where the three trains exploded, would it have been possible for the young men---supposedly IDed together on TV cameras at about 8:30AM, at King's Cross---to have made their way to their separate trains and arrive at the spots where the bombs went off---at 8:50AM? That's roughly 20 minutes, starting from King's Cross. I don't know the answer to this question, but it's certainly worth exploring in detail.
Another issue: you'll recall that yesterday I quoted a press report that stated bomber IDs were found very close to the seats on the trains where the bombs went off. I commented that these IDs must have been made of extremely thick steel to have survived the blasts. And to have remained in shape good enough to read There is another point. If these were true IDs, and if they weren't planted after the explosions as a cover story, why would they have remained close to the seats where the bombs exploded? Wouldn't air currents alone, from the bombs, have caused mere ID cards to blow some distance away---assuming they weren't burned up altogether?
Here is a snip from that press report (Sky News). The comments about IDs found near seats where the bombs went off are from Peter Clarke/Scotland Yard:
"Deputy Assistant Commissioner Peter Clarke, head of Scotland's Yard anti-terrorist branch...'We know that all four of these [bombers] arrived in London by train on the morning [of July 7]. We have identified CCTV footage showing the four men at King's Cross Station shortly before 8.30am on that morning, July 7...We have since found personal documents bearing the names of three of those four men close to the seats of three of the explosions."

WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU SUBSCRIBE TO PREMIUM CONTENT
JULY 9, 2005. I started PREMIUM CONTENT to create a home for miles of information I wasn't posting on this home page. It's a subscription service, for members. It's been called "a completely different and deeper rendition of the reality game and the transcending of that game."
Catherine Austin Fitts, former assistant secretary of Housing and Urban Development, and now the creator of Solari.com, a startling new project for reclaiming community money power, has recommended PREMIUM CONTENT to colleagues and friends.
What's on PREMIUM CONTENT?
Let's begin with the series of the books called THE SECRET BEHIND SECRET SOCIETIES. Volume 1 was a breakthrough for me. It was the first time I could set down everything I knew about the common denominator for all secret societies---and about the hidden counter-force I called The Tradition of Imagination. Volume 1 lays out the pattern that explains what has really been happening on this planet since its inception. It also links the paranormal to the imagination. At present, the first 30 chapters of the book are posted for subscribers, and I will continue to add, several chapters at a time, the rest of the book.
Volume 2 of this series of books is called FULL POWER. It exists in manuscript form only. It has never been printed. It extends the premises of volume 1 and offers, for adventurous readers, distinct clues about paranormal abilities. At present, 30 chapters are posted on PREMIUM CONTENT, and I will continue to add the rest of the book.
Volume 3, THE MAGICIAN AWAKES, is in the process of being written. So far, the first 15 chapters are posted on PREMIUM CONTENT. I am writing this book to offer still more clues about the development of paranormal abilities. I will post the whole book on PREMIUM CONTENT as I write it.
Actually, volume 3 intersects with my NEWSLETTER SECTION of PREMIUM CONTENT. The newsletter section contains a whopping 271 entries at present, and I continue to add to it. This is a very long and wide area of information, mostly composed of interviews I've done with fascinating guests. For example, the late hypnotherapist and friend, Jack True, who researched, in a unique fashion, the role of "waking up hypnotherapy" as a force for better physical health and the restoration of paranormal abilities. Another principal interviewee is Ellis Medavoy, a retired propaganda expert who, for a long time, worked for "the bad guys" and knows just how deep various propaganda operations can get in an effort to create false perception for the population of Earth.
My latest entries in the newsletter section are pieces of a multi-part interview with "the man who went to heaven." This long interview just keeps getting better. It involves the paranormal in a direct way---and I could have posted the interview as new chapters for THE MAGICIAN AWAKES. The interview IS, in fact, part of this book, and I'll begin to note that as the interview expands.
There are three other books of mine posted on PREMIUM CONTENT. OKLAHOMA CITY BOMBING/THE SUPPRESSED TRUTH uncovers the government fiction surrounding the bombing. It was the first published book (1995) on that event.
Then there is AIDS INC., published in 1988. It was the first book on the whole HIV-causes-AIDS scam. Most of the book is posted on PREMIUM CONTENT. About ten years ago, Peter Duesberg, the biologist who first debunked the HIV theory of AIDS, wrote, about AIDS INC., "This is the first and still the best book written about AIDS."
Another book, which I compiled, consists of written testimony offered by a therapist, her patients, and other therapists submitted to Bill Clinton's committee on human radiation experiments (1995). This testimony is riveting and explosive. I called it US GOVERNMENT MIND CONTROL EXPERIMENTS ON CHILDREN.
On a related subject, you can also read my extensive report called WHY DID THEY DO IT? THE SCHOOL SHOOTINGS IN AMERICA. This report contains a signficant amount of information tying school shootings to the ingestion of medical psychoactive drugs. Scientific studies on drugs such as Prozac and Ritalin are cited and described.
Finally, there are roughly 25 hours of audio on PREMIUM CONTENT. A release called INFOMONSTER contains 10-plus hours of lectures I did specifically to explain the planetary chessboard and how it connects to various levels of consciousness.
I have done 5-plus hours of lecture on VACCINES: THE REAL TRUTH, detailing the lies medical propagandists have told, and setting out the real facts about the dangers of vaccines.
I have also posted 4-plus hours of audio lecture called LONGEVITY ONE, which lays out my original presentation on the mind-body connection and how it can be used to promote better physical health.
LONGEVITY TWO is also there. Four more hours, in which I interview my wife, Dr. Laura Thompson, one of the world's great nutritionists. Shortly before Laura expanded her counseling service into the Carlsbad, California, SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA INSTITUTE OF CLINICAL NUTRITION (see link this page), she and I sat down and went through detailed, vital information on 17 nutrients that contribute to longevity.
PREMIUM CONTENT members are offered discounts on nutritional products obtained from Laura's office.
So that's the basic structure of PREMIUM CONTENT.
But it's not static. It continues to grow, through the addition of my entries in the newsletter section.
And here is something else. For the past 30 years, on and off, I have been working on a novel. It's called AJEN, and it grows out in many directions. It combines secret ops and a vastly paranormal universe. At present, it's about 300 pages. The sub-headline on it is: A CRIME NOVEL OF PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE. It's my own personal paranormal writing project. As I've mentioned before, I don't know whether it'll ever be finished. But soon, in the newsletter section, I'll begin posting chapters. Whether or not Ajen ever sees the light of day as a hard-copy novel published by a major house, it'll be there and there first on PREMIUM CONTENT. At one point I realized that many threads of research could only be followed and presented as fiction. Not because there was a need to disguise the facts, but because these facts could only be accessed by the imagination. And because these facts could only be CREATED by the imagination.
I have another project designated for PREMIUM CONTENT I can't talk about yet. There may be copyright issues to handle. No wrangling, but just issues to work out, hopefully.
If you subscribe to PREMIUM CONTENT, you'll not only get everything I've listed plus the continuing entries I keep posting there. You'll also be supporting this free home page, where I write new articles all the time. Subscriptions to PREMIUM CONTENT provide the income that allows me to keep working and researching and writing. PREMIUM CONTENT keeps this site alive.
I do hope you'll join up. See links at the top of this page. And I hope current members will re-subscribe when their memberships expire. As you can see, much new information is being added all the time. If you're not sure when your current subscription runs out, you can email a query to email@example.com

TV CAMERAS NOT WORKING ON LONDON BUS
JULY 12, 2005. From the British newspaper, the Mirror:
But the investigation received a serious setback when it was discovered the CCTV cameras on the bus that blew up were not working so detectives will not get vital images of the bomber.
One senior Yard source said: "It's a big blow and a disappointment. If the cameras had been running we would have had pin-sharp close-up pictures of the person who carried out this atrocity.
"We don't know if the driver forgot to switch them on or if there was a technical problem but there are no images."
The bus had four cameras - one covering people getting on, the second at the exit doors and one on each deck scanning the length of the vehicle.
end Mirror snip
I assume, from press reports, that these cameras carry tape and do not transmit directly to remote locations where police view action (and do their own taping) in real time.
If so, I wonder whether the tape in the bus cameras would have survived the blast. However, it is more than odd that the cameras in bus were not functioning on the morning of 7/7.
This is classic and obvious op control. Turn off the cameras. Leave no visual evidence.
That the police would regard these non-functioning cameras as merely strange and sad is also a classic reaction. It speaks of a naive level of ignorance that is massive. Of course, I'm sure there are London cops in the ranks who assume turning off those cameras was pure op control. And at the top of the London police, there are certainly men who are issuing releases they know to be false.
If you were a cop, what would you think? A bus is blown up, killing and maiming many people. Your first line of investigation on that day is the bus cameras. They didn't work. They were turned off. Would you shrug your shoulders and decide it was all a coincidence?

LONDON ATTACKS---IS THIS A REPLAY OF THE PRISTINE 9/11 PASSPORT?
JULY 12, 2005. The cover stories are flying thick and fast as British investigators try to put some kind of cap on the London attacks.
It turns out, if you believe the Brooklyn Bridge is for sale, that actual IDs of bombers were found in separate piles of rubble at the sites of the blasts.
These IDs must have been engraved deeply in three-foot-thick steel.
Remember the 9/11 hijacker passport that floated out of the crashing jetliner on 9/11 and landed intact on a New York street?
Here is a Sky News report out of London. There are too many points to make up front, so I've inserted comments in caps and brackets as you go:
BOMBER DIED IN TUBE BLAST
It is "highly likely" one of the Tube bombers died in the attacks on the Underground network, police say. [LATER IN THIS PIECE WE'LL LEARN THAT IT'S LIKELY ALL THE BOMBERS ARE DEAD.]
The suspected bombers travelled down from the West Yorkshire and met at Kings Cross station shortly before the attacks were launched on Thursday morning, police said at a press conference.
Their images were captured by CCTV cameras.
Personal documents have been found at all four bomb scenes and although the four attackers are thought to have died [OH THEY'RE ALL CONVENIENTLY DEAD BUT THE BOMBS THEMSELVES WERE ON TIMERS, WHICH WOULD HAVE GIVEN THE KILLERS TIME TO WALK AWAY FROM THE BOMBS---I SEE---IT WASN'T SUICIDE BOMBINGS, IT WAS JUST FOUR COINCIDENTAL SCREW-UPS BY THE TERRORISTS THAT RESULTED IN THEIR DEATHS] police were careful not to say whether Britain had suffered its first suicide bomb strike.
Anti-terror police said they had traced the bombers and six arrest warrants have been issued for addresses in West Yorkshire.
Police said there was forensic evidence that meant it was "very likely" the bomber responsible for the train explosion at Aldgate died there. [WHAT EVIDENCE? WILL WE EVER SEE IT?]
One of the four men had been reported missing by his family on the day of the attacks and his property was found at the bus blast scene. The second man's property was found at the scene of the Aldgate blast and the third man's property at both the Aldgate and Edgware Road blasts. [PROPERTY? PLANTED BY OPS AGENTS? DESKS, CHAIRS, JEWELRY? ENCASED IN STEEL VAULTS?]
One man has just been arrested in west Yorkshire in connection with the attacks. Deputy Assistant Commissioner Peter Clarke, head of Scotland's Yard anti-terrorist branch, said: "The investigation quite early led us to have concerns about the movement 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 attack and specifically to establish whether they all died in the explosions. [THEY'RE ALL LIKELY DEAD. NO MAYBE NOT. LOOKS LIKE YES. WE CAN'T TELL. BUT WE HAVE THEIR 'PROPERTY' RIGHT THERE AT THE BLAST SCENES. MAYBE IT WAS PLANTED SO THEY COULD ESCAPE. TYPICAL AL QAEDA. PRETEND TO BE A SUICIDE BOMBER AND THEN ESCAPE. FORGET THE OTHER COVER STORY ABOUT THE AL QAEDA MO BEING SUICIDE AND GOING TO PARADISE. THIS IS DIFFERENT. BUT IT'S THE SAME. IT'S AL QAEDA.] We executed six warrants under the Terrorism Act at premises in the West Yorkshire area."
These included the home addresses of three of the four men. A detailed forensic examination will now follow and this is likely to take time to complete." [THE PUBLIC HAS NO RIGHT TO LEARN THE DETAILS OF THAT EXAMINATION. NOT NOW. NOT EVER. WE'LL ONLY RELEASE THE CONCLUSIONS.]
He continued: "We know that all four of these arrived in London by train on the morning. We have identified CCTV footage showing the four men at King's Cross Station shortly before 8.30am on that morning, July 7. [THEY POSED FOR A JOINT PICTURE FOR THE CAMERAS? BUT THEY WERE BRIGHT ENOUGH TO LEAVE 'PROPERTY' AT THE BLAST SCENES AS EVIDENCE OF DEATH, AFTER WHICH, WITH THEIR MUGS ON CAMERA, THEY ESCAPED. SURE, THAT MAKES SENSE.]
"One of them who had set out from West Yorkshire was reported missing by his family to the casualty bureau on July 7. We have been able to establish that he was joined on his journey to London by three other men. We have since found personal documents bearing the names of three of those four men close to the seats of three of the explosions." [IN PRISTINE CONDITION, NO DOUBT, WITH LARGE RED ARROWS POINTING TO THE NAMES, RIGHT THERE AT THE VERY CENTERS OF THE BLAST SCENES. IMMORTAL IDs.] As regards to the man who is missing, some of his property was found on the route 30 bus in Tavistock Square. Property of a second man was found at the scene of the Aldgate bomb and in relation to a third man property with his name was found at the Aldgate and Edgware Road bombs." [BUNDLES OF CLOTHING WITH HIS NAME SEWN ON LABELS? CLOTHING MADE OF ASBESTOS?] We have strong forensic evidence that it is very likely that one of the men from West Yorkshire died at the explosion at Aldgate."
Sky News terror expert Steve Park said the documents may have been deliberately planted to "send police the wrong way". [STEVE PARK HAS JUST RECEIVED A NEW ASSIGNMENT REPORTING ON BIRDS IN ALASKA. ANYWAY, WHO WOULD HAVE DONE THE PLANTING OF EVIDENCE? TERRORISTS? AFTER THEY POSED FOR A JOINT PICTURE IN FRONT OF A TV CAMERA ON THEIR WAY TO LONDON? SAY IT, STEVE. OPS AGENTS OR COPS MUST HAVE PLANTED THE EVIDENCE.]
The news comes as armed police search a house in Leeds after the Army used a controlled explosion to get in. [I THOUGHT THEY HAD PEOPLE OVER THERE WHO COULD PICK LOCKS. AND IF THEY REMOTELY SUSPECTED EXPLOSIVE MATERIALS MIGHT BE IN THE HOUSE, WAS THE CONTROLLED EXPLOSION DONE TO GAIN ENTRANCE OR TO DESTROY REAL EVIDENCE?]
It was the discovery that the bus bomber was likely to have died in the blasts that triggered the raids. [AREN'T AMERICAN NEWS OUTLETS CLAIMING THE REAL CLUE WAS PROVIDED BY A PHONE CALL ON THE 7TH FROM A FAMILY IN THAT NEIGHBORHOOD? CAN'T THEY KEEP THEIR COVER STORIES STRAIGHT?] Hundreds of people were evacuated from the area around Hyde Park Road, Burley.
No one was in the house at the time but armed officers had been used as a precaution. Five other homes in Leeds had earlier been raided by police hunting the terrorists behind last week's attacks.
Neighbours at one of the addresses said a 22-year-old man who lived there with his family had gone missing. Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Ian Blair said the raids were "directly connected" to Thursday's atrocity.
Hours later, police evacuated Luton railway station and car park to recover a vehicle suspected of being linked with the terrorist attacks. The car was blown up in two controlled explosions. [BLOWN UP WHEN? BEFORE OR AFTER EVIDENCE WAS OBTAINED FROM THE CAR. SEEMS LIKE THE AUTHORITIES ARE BUSY BLOWING UP KEY EVIDENCE. WAIT A FEW MINUTES. THEY'LL BLOW UP AREAS OF THE SUBWAY SYSTEM WHERE THE BLASTS WENT OFF.]
end Sky News article
This has to be one of the most transparent and amateur efforts at stitching together cover stories I've ever run across. Right up there with 9/11 and the OKC bombing.

LONDON BOMBINGS UNDER THE RADAR
JULY 12, 2005. A couple of days ago, I reprinted an excerpt from an article written by Alex Jones and Paul Watson, and posted at prisonplanet.com.
This article highlighted and analyzed an interview (July7) on BBC Radio 5, the Drive show. The man interviewed, Peter Power, is a consultant for a firm, Visor Consultants. Visor does much security work on contract. Power stated that his, yes, mock terror drills were taking place at several of the sames times and places as the actual bombings, and his people suddenly realized it as they were doing their mock work on the morning of the bombings.
The implications of Power's statements were dazzling, to say the least, and since then I have received queries about whether this radio interview really took place. I can understand people's shock and doubt, because the import of Power's remarks opens up a whole new direction in the research of the bombing attack.
As Jones and Watson pointed out in their article, the mock-drill- versus-real-event mirrored what happened in the US on 9/11, when mock air attacks were being conducted as the real thing took place.
First, I want to print an answer to my query I just received from BBC Radio Five:
"We do not provide transcripts but if you wish to listen back to the
Drive programme on Thursday 7th July at 17.06 where Peter Power from Visor consultants talks to our presenter Peter Allen - please click on the link below. [Jones/Watson also offered audio links on prisonplanet.com]
"The entire Five Live schedule is available for a seven day period for
you to listen again to as audio on demand (excluding live sports
So, in case there were any lingering doubts left in truly boggled minds, yes, the interview did of course take place. Jones/Watson picked up on it and reported it. Their piece has now been reprinted on a number of sites.
I decided to try to contact Peter Power. I sent an email to Visor consultants, and I received an answer. It comes from Mr. Power, although, as you'll see, it is a standard message that is being sent out by him to all the people who are flooding his email box with questions.
"Thank you for your message. Given the volume of emails about events on 7 July and a commonly expressed misguided belief that our exercise revealed prescient behaviour, or was somehow a conspiracy (noting that several websites interpreted our work that day in an inaccurate / naive / ignorant / hostile manner) it has been decided to issue a single email response as follows: It is confirmed that a short number of 'walk through' scenarios planed [sic] well in advance had commenced that morning for a private company in London (as part of a wider project that remains confidential) and that two scenarios related directly to terrorist bombs at the same time as the ones that actually detonated with such tragic results. One scenario in particular, was very similar to real time events.
"However, anyone with knowledge about such ongoing threats to our capital city will be aware that (a) the emergency services have already practiced several of their own exercises based on bombs in the underground system (also reported by the main news channels) and (b) a few months ago the BBC broadcast a similar documentary on the same theme, although with much worse consequences [??]. It is hardly surprising therefore, that we chose a feasible scenario - but the timing and script was nonetheless, a little disconcerting.
"In short, our exercise (which involved just a few people as crisis managers actually responding to a simulated series of activities involving, on paper, 1000 staff) quickly became the real thing and the players that morning responded very well indeed to the sudden reality of events.
"Beyond this no further comment will be made and based on the extraordinary number of messages from ill informed people, no replies will henceforth be given to anyone unable to demonstrate a bona fide reason for asking (e.g. accredited journalist / academic).
If you go back and read what Power said to host Allen in his BBC interview, Power was a lot more shocked himself at the time.
Obviously, Power, in his email, is trying to downplay the significance of the mock-versus-real events.
It's clear that the simultaneous staging of mock drills and the emergence of real events in the same times and places could confuse law enforcement, delay response, and also, as Jones/Watson point out, create a possible cover story for persons in the midst of planting real bombs ("I'm part of an exercise.").
I have received and seen several reports from people who were in and about in London as the bombings were taking place. One person, unnamed, states that he saw underground stations along one line shut down by many police BEFORE the bombings occurred. Another observer notes that additional bombs were reported by the press, early on, as DIFFUSED before they went off. And as I've written, the story of how many bombs there were and when they went off was changed several times in press reports---7-8 explosions were reduced to 4.
Bombs diffused before the explosions began (unless these were mock bombs---see how a cover story could work?)) implies foreknowledge of some kind on the part of law enforcement, and of course we have several press stories that indicate the Israeli embassy in London (but no one else?) was actually warned before the first explosion.
Visor consultants has probably received emails accusing them of being in on a bomb plot. Whereas, it would be easy for the ops managers of the real thing to USE the Visor mock drills as a distraction/cover for a short time that morning.
In any case, it will take a great deal more digging to sort out who was using whom.
Note that most of what is in this article has received NO follow-up from the mainstream press. If you were a reporter in London, wouldn't you, for example, jump in with both feet and talk to Peter Power in depth and find out exactly how his drills interacted with the real thing?
From Power's statements so far, it is not entirely clear to me whether he is denying that any of Visor's people were actually at bomb scenes on 7/7. He claims that the mock drills were largely a paper exercise. But the specifics are blurry. And then there is the question of whether we should believe him if he does clarify his points.
