INTRODUCTION

My book, Terror on the Tube, Behind the Veil of 7/7′ aims to open up some degree of public debate over who perpetrated the London bombings, and why they might have done it.

It is far from evident that we have been given any proper answers to this grave question. This site includes additional information, updates and news of recent July 7th developments as the investigation continues. Collectively, we have to use our powers of reason. If we don’t do this, then what Goya described in his painting will assuredly happen: ‘When Reason Sleeps, Monsters are Born.’

‘When Reason Sleeps, Monsters are Born.’

Politicians want to control you through fear, and so they need ways of invoking fear-and-terror, as told so well in the BBC trilogy, ‘The Power of Nightmares’. The best way to avoid this, in my view, is through well-informed thought and collective discourse. Shocking though some of my conclusions may be, we must not flinch from reaching them if they are warranted. In my youth, I would never have believed that the Powers that Be could do such things! I was working as a science historian at UCL adjacent to Tavistock Square, where the July 7th bus bomb went off. It seemed to me, as someone who has lived in London for most of his life, that my training as a science historian was relevant and could be useful for investigating this quite technological type of crime.

I Was Wrong

Did the Four get up to London on the morning of July 7th? For years I was doubtful – the evidence seemed so dubious, with dodgy photos and no reliable witnesses, that it seemed unlikely. That is the view that Dave Shayler and I argued in the following dialogue, made around the fifth anniversary of the event.

I had been much ridiculed by the BBC in their  ‘Conspiracy Files’ program about 7/7. They asked me if I believed the Four had been up in London that morning and I replied in the negative. They then showed some of the film of Hasib Hussein in London on that morning by way of demonstrating how wrong I was. Well, on 13th October 2010 it finally dawned upon me that they had been right: watching a lot of unedited CCTV of Hasib Hussein pottering around King’s Cross from 8.55 for twenty-five minutes in rush hour, after which he abruptly disappeared from view. The public will never get to see that unedited CCTV – the Met has to blur out all the rest of the image before releasing it, so one only sees Hasib Hussein.

That was the only genuine, unfiddled-with CCTV I’ve seen from the day of 7.7.05. For comparison, we’ve also been shown quite a bit of genuine, unfiddled-with CCTV from June 28th ten days earlier. Watching these video-sequences of Hasib Hussein had quite a big impact upon me: that’s why its worth attending these trials.

The shocking message was – and feel free to disagree with me (I don’t censor letters here, as long as they are on-topic) – the Ripple Effect must have been right after all (Ripple Effect Remains intact).

For the 5th anniversary of 7/7, (or about a week after it) I and Ex-MI5 agent David Shayler went up to Luton station, by the famous railings where the dodgy photo of the Four was taken. One could say that there are only two CCTV images of the Four together on that historic morning – one at Luton at 7.22, the other at King’s Cross at 8.26: both obviously faked and fiddled-with. Dave and I are here mulling over these matters.

Called ‘7/7 revisited,’ it’s in 6 parts altogether. It was filmed by Mark the author of the dynamic new ‘Land of the Free’ website and here is his description of it:

On the anniversary of the 7/ 7 bombings landofthefree.co.uk went to Luton Railway Station with David Shayler and Dr.Nick Kollestrom. In this fascinating series of videos Ex MI5 counter intelligence officer David Shayler and Dr. Nick Kollestrom who wrote the book “Terror on the tube” about the events of 7/7 give their unique insights and address the key points and consequences of the attacks.

Dave Shayler is a major expert on the subject, having starred in the classic early ‘Mind the Gap’ video on the subject.

Two important new videos were released, on July 7th, 2010:

*   A Press TV (Iranian) video, on 5th anniversary (in three parts). Tell your Muslim friends to watch this one! Surely, this is the first significant contribution to the 7/7 debate, where members of the British Muslim community are involved. continue reading…
