Strange Coincidences Suggest Cover-up
"At half past nine
this morning we were actually running an exercise for a company of over a
thousand people in London based on simultaneous bombs going off precisely
at the railway stations where it happened this morning, so I still have the
hairs on the back of my neck standing up right now."
-- Former Scotland Yard Official Peter Power on BBC Radio, 7/7/05
After the tragic 7/7 London bombing, many strange
facts from highly credible sources have surfaced. The most astonishing is the below conversation which took
place the afternoon of the London bombing on BBC radio. The BBC host interviewed
Peter Power, Managing Director of Visor Consultants, which bills itself as
a 'crisis management' company. Peter Power was a former Scotland Yard
POWER: At half past nine this morning we were actually running an exercise for a company of over a thousand people in London based on simultaneous bombs going off precisely at the railway stations where it happened this morning, so I still have the hairs on the back of my neck standing up right now.
HOST: To get this quite straight, you were running an exercise to see how you would cope with this, and it happened while you were running the exercise?
POWER: Precisely, and it was about half past nine this morning. We planned this for a company, and for obvious reasons I don't want to reveal their name, but they're listening and they'll know it. And we had a room full of crisis managers for the first time they'd met. And so within five minutes we made a pretty rapid decision that this is the real one, and so we went through the correct drills of activating crisis management procedures to jump from slow time to quick time thinking.

repeats these statements on ITN television. The two-minute video clip is available
Below is another excerpt on this matter from the website of CBC, Canada's public broadcasting TV network:
"CRISIS PLANNING: When there is an emergency like the London bombings, the public instinctively turns to professionals for help. We speak to two experts who are in Toronto today for the World Conference on Disaster Management. Adrian Gordon is the Executive Director of the Canadian Centre for Emergency Preparedness, and Peter Power is Managing Director of a London-based consulting firm that specializes in crisis management, Visor Consultants - which on the morning of July 7 was co-incidentally running a security exercise for a private firm, simulating multiple bomb explosions in the London Underground, at the same stations that were subsequently attacked in real life."
The CBC website posted a two-minute video clip on CBC of Power telling his story at this link:
Unfortunately, that recording was removed, though you can still see part of the interview at this one.
these astounding statements draw front-page coverage both in the UK and US?
And why is Peter Power now backtracking on some of his earlier comments? This
situation is strikingly similar to a situation on 9/11 which should have made
front-page headlines that was reported in the Boston Globe:
"In what the government describes as a bizarre coincidence, one U.S.
intelligence agency was planning an exercise last Sept. 11 in which an errant
aircraft would crash into one of its buildings. But the cause wasn't terrorism
-- it was to be a simulated accident. Officials at the Chantilly, Va.-based
National Reconnaissance Office [NRO] had scheduled an exercise that morning
in which a small corporate jet would crash into one of the four towers at
the agency's headquarters building after experiencing a mechanical failure.
The agency is about four miles from the runways of Washington Dulles International
Airport." [So it was just a short hop for the NRO team to run
over and secure the Pentagon. And by the way, the little-known NRO
has an annual budget estimated to be over over $10 billion.]
London Bombs of Military Origin
service reports below on the explosives used in the London bombing:
"'The explosives appear to be of military origin, which is very worrying,' said Christophe Chaboud, head of the French Anti-Terrorism Coordination Unit and one of five top officials sent by Paris to London immediately after Thursday's attacks."
The Times of London has an article confirming this:
"A SINGLE bombmaker using high-grade military explosives is believed to be responsible for building the four devices that killed more than 50 people last week, The Times can reveal. Similar components from the explosive devices have been found at all four murder sites, leading detectives to believe that each of the 10lb rucksack bombs was the work of one man. They also believe that the materials used were not home made but sophisticated military explosives, possibly smuggled into Britain from the Balkans."
Phony Al Qaeda Claims?
Then MSNBC informs us that the note posted on an alleged Al Qaeda-related website claiming responsibility for the bombings may be phony: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/8496293/
"MSNBC TV translator Jacob Keryakes, who said that a copy of the message was later posted on a secular Web site, noted that the claim of responsibility contained an error in one of the Quranic verses it cited. That suggests that the claim may be phony, he said. 'This is not something al-Qaida would do,' he said."
Blair Opposes Probe Into Bombings?
respected Financial Times posted an article: "Blair rejects calls
for probe into bombings"
"Tony Blair will on Monday reject Conservative demands for a government inquiry into last week's London bomb attacks, insisting such a move would distract from the task of catching the perpetrators."
Does this make any sense? Why wouldn't an investigation help to prevent something like this from happening again? Blair's stance is strikingly similar to the early opposition by both President Bush and Vice President Cheney to the establishment of an independent commission to probe 9/11, as reported by CBS News, Newsweek, and elsewhere.
"President Bush took a few minutes during his trip to Europe Thursday to voice his opposition to establishing a special commission to probe how the government dealt with terror warnings before Sept. 11."
"Cheney was calling to pre-emptively protest public hearings by other committees. If the Democrats insisted, Bush administration officials might say they're too busy running the war on terrorism to show up. Press the issue, Cheney implied, and you risk being accused of interfering with the mission."
You Can Make a Difference
Is it possible that there is more to these bombings that we are being led to believe? We have a wealth of information from highly reliable sources suggesting that, at the very least, 9/11 was consciously allowed to happen by certain elements within the government in order to forward the war agenda.
