Book Review: Terror On The Tube

This important book tears to shreds the official explanation of the 7/7 bombings. No readers will be surprised to be told about government lies, but Kollerstrom presents a detailed analysis based on a wealth of information that is staggering in its implications.

The government story is demolished. Times, photographs, official statements – all are subject to careful scrutiny that leaves nothing standing. Kollerstrom admits that the truth about 7/7 may never be known, and argues for a proper public enquiry.

He also attempts a posthumous rehabilitation of the four so-called bombers. So who was responsible? The author describes ‘false-flag terror’, staged by governments to achieve political ends. Webster Tarpley, an US analyst, said in 2005: ‘Last week’s London explosions carry the characteristic features of state-sponsored, synthetic provocation by networks within the British intelligence services MI-5, MI-6, the Home Office, and the Metropolitan Special Branch who are favourable to a wider Anglo-American aggressive war in the Middle East.’

The false-flag argument is extended to other much-publicised terrorist atrocities – 9/11, Bali, Madrid, Istanbul and Mumbai. Such events, with the focus here on 7/7, imply obvious state-organised conspiracies. It is true that some conspiracy theories are nonsense, but before you dismiss Kollerstrom’s case you should read this well-researched and impressive book.
