There has been a tremendous focus on the events of 9/11 in New York and a resulting mass of evidence that points to the involvement of at least some parts of the American government itself. At the very least the idea that it was solely down to Osama Bin Laden and 'Al Qeada' has been provably demolished.
There has been much less of a focus on the London tube and bus bombings on 7/7. Even though the evidence that all is not what it seems is not quite as substantial as that of 9/11 it is there all the same. Nick Kollerstrom has written a book about it called 'Terror On The Tube' which looks into the events of that day in some detail and leaves us in no doubt that the government's story does not hold true.
He has a website that accompanies the book that has many articles of interest. The one that caught my eye was written by philosopher Dr Rory Ridley-Duff of Sheffield Hallam University. It compares the likely veracity of two differing accounts of that day. The one was the BBC's program, which was part of its 'Conspiracy Files' series and the other the much lauded '7/7 Ripple Effect' that blew away the government's story and left the viewer with no doubts that some element of the British power structure was involved.
On the BBC's efforts he writes:
“It is the BBC / Government theory that has a lower level of correspondence with known ‘facts’, is incoherent to the point of being implausible, and is more likely to distort its reports because of institutional controls and political pressures.”
And on 7/7 Ripple Efffect he states:
“The thesis put forward in 7/7 Ripple Effect remains coherent with available evidence. A social constructivist (critical) perspective identifies cultural and political interests that influence the selection and interpretation of available evidence. While the paper concludes that both documentaries construct truth that supports their political outlook and agenda, the theory advanced in 7/7 Ripple Effect is better able to explain anomalies in the official account as well as the evidence of a crisis at Canary Wharf on the same day.”
In summary he adds:
… for ethnic British people in particular, the notion that the British government (or one of its security agencies) would bomb its own citizens to bolster support for war may trigger a great deal of cognitive dissonance (Festinger, 1957)… As a government bombing its own citizens violates the principles of liberal democracy (government by the people, for the people), there is a ‘common-sense’ impulse to discard any theory based on the idea.
The 'impulse' passed away for me a long time ago now. Is it worth clamouring for another 'investigation'? They appear to control all the levers of power so it seems futile to do so. The conclusion I have reached after investigating this and many other subjects is that our only recourse is some sort of Lawful Rebellion. As Nick Kollerstrom quotes on his blog 'when reason sleeps, monsters are born'. I can only hope that enough to make a difference begin to wake up.
