Unfortunately, I’m way too knackered right now to properly comment on either the titanic exchange of comments between Frank O’Dwyer and various members of July 7th Truth a couple of posts back OR this surprising snippet of 7/7 related news-
Postman Patel has blogged the news with a couple of links and comments that I don't feel any need to repeat.
The surprising part for me is not that the Official 7/7 narrative contains at least one ‘mistake’, I’ve known about that since it was published. The surprising part is that the Home Secretary and Police have felt obliged to acknowledge it. And obliged must surely be the word. Unless you feel comfortable believing that after what must have been one of the largest investigations in British criminal history it took the police 12 months to find out which train the 7/7 bombers took into London. Yesterday was the first time that there has been any hint from official sources that the train we've been repeatedly told carried the bombers didn't actually run.
A few hazy thoughts snatched from the jaws of extreme sleep deprivation…
- Congratulations (again) and a concerned citizen's thanks to Bridget Dunne for tirelessly pushing this issue. As far as I can tell she tried just about every conventional option available – writing to police, politicians, public servants, filing press complaints and getting comprehensively blown off by all of them. Chalk this up as a success for the ordinary person and the Internet.
- If anyone thinks that this is the end of the matter, think again. Even with a revised train time, the official account of 7/7 is still largely unsupported by anything approximating to hard evidence and whiffs something awful
- And bear in mind, ahead of any attempts to rationalise the ‘revised’ train time, that the four 7/7 bombers were supposedly packing rucksacks filled with TATP – The Highly Tetchy Mother of Satan - on a summer’s day and were unlikely to be sprinting anywhere. Now if they were packing military explosives, like we were first told, they’d be no such concerns. But military explosives are, of course, conspicuously traceable
- Can we please have an independent fucking inquiry into 7/7 now?
and PS, if you read this Frank thanks for that engaging with the July 7th Truth folks over the weekend. As limp as it may sound, critical but constructive dialogue warms my heart it does
