7/7 Conspiracy Theories and Connecting the Dots

Ellywa (CC)

If the London terrorist attacks of 7 July 2005 have not obsessed conspiracy theorists to the extent of the American 9/11 attacks, they have still been fertile ground. A summary of sorts is provided by Tom Secker at the Centre for Research on Globalization:

We are on the eve of the 7th anniversary of the 7/7 terrorist attacks in which 56 people, including the alleged culprits, were killed. In that time, numerous theories have been put forward as to what really happened and who was truly responsible. The official theory, that four young British Muslim men radicalised each other into a fanatic religious rage that they chose to express through the medium of suicide bombing, is perhaps the best known. It is, naturally, a conspiracy theory, though because it is officially sanctioned it does not tend to get given its true name. It claims that the four men conspired, with malice aforethought, to murder over 50 people.

Refuting the official conspiracy theory has been a painstaking process for those sections of the independent research community, but is has been a thoroughly successful one. 7/7 is, at its simplest, a horrible crime. In investigating that crime we can look at it in relatively conventional terms of means, motive and opportunity.

The Means

Exactly what means were used to kill the victims of 7/7 has never been established.

The official cause of death in each case is ‘injuries suffered in an explosion’, but the actual explosive used has never been determined. At the July 7th inquests into the deaths of the 52 (excluding the alleged bombers), explosives expert Clifford Todd admitted that they found no trace of the main explosive at any of the bomb sites.

This presents several potential scenarios. It is possible that the forensic examiners were utterly useless. The record of such scientists in this country is quite terrible. It is possible that the explosive used was exotic, unknown to the existence investigative science in this area. It is possible that they did figure out what explosive was used and it had nothing to do with the organic peroxide-black pepper/powdered Masala concoction supposedly used by the alleged bombers, and therefore they hushed it up. It is possible that the explosive used was of a very sophisticated kind that left little or no trace, consuming all the explosive substance in the chemical reaction.

In any case, since we don’t know the means that were used to kill those people, asserting that the alleged bombers had that means is absurd.

The Motive

The supposed motive has never been formally established. No one who knew any of the alleged bombers suspected they would become mass murderers…

    Bleach with pepper.  The bureaucrat who came up with that one deserves a bonus for having a great, big, swinging pair.

  2. Improve the education, build a good education system. Teach people how to take care of the planet and themselves – put an end to the consumerist society; put an end to superstitions through scientific knowledge and won’t have anymore suicide bombers.

    Although, those in power, prefer obedient and ignorant consumers. The result could be seen very well in 2011, in those riots, burning London.

  3. It’s one thing to blame the system for fucking us in the ass, it’s worse to politely bend over and take it.  The atrocities will go on, most will look the other way, because voicing ideas is uncool. and make you a conspiracy nut.  Nothing has changed in the world, only the nature of the game has, there’s only 40 something thousand people on this site, yet millions are on FB and Twitter posting mid lunch trivial updates and photos of newborns and puppies instead of using the platform to communicate ideas and question the system.

    The masses are to blame as most are being fucking cowards and deserve to perish.

  4. the one conspiracy scenario I have not seen
    is that some kind of “trickster god” is F-ing with humanity
    because when you look at the residue of these “terrorist attacks”
    the circumstances are always confusing and anomalous
    that look like the work of Loki or Sun Wukong

    • in this rational age
      there is no room for the Mister Mxyzptlk theory
      (that’s crazier than: Cheney masterminded 911)
      yet the work of Mxyzptlk is writ large everywhere

      the last 2 times I was in the States
      Mister Mxyzptlk was everywhere I looked
      in a 60 day period I personally ran into him twice

    to justify war T.Blair lied, Bush too.
    pretext wars are not bunch of theories, its facts; Gulf of Tonkin, Ajax, Northwoods, USS Liberty, SAS agents dressed as Arabs in Iraq…
    and your 2012 revelation, operation Fast&Furious… 
    should you believe what your governments tells you one more time ?!
