Originally broadcast Tuesday, July 7th, 9-10 a.m. Pacific (noon-1 pm Eastern) on http://NoLiesRadio.org: Ian Henshall, author, 9/11 Revealed: The New Evidence; one of four national coordinators, www.reinvestigate911.org. As a leading figure of the U.K. truth movement, Ian Henshall joined me on the fourth anniversary of the 7/7 London bombings to discuss the recent BBC-TV “Conspiracy Files” hatchet-job against the 7/7 truth movement.
Ian Henshall writes:
I do not claim to be an expert on 7/7, but I think it is fair to say that few UK sceptics think 7/7: The Ripple Effect is correct, while most think the truth is probably a great deal murkier, as Nafeez Ahmed thought in his book on 7/7.
From this perspective this article in yesterday’s Daily Mail is pretty good I think. It fails to explicitly mention MI6 and the vanishing 7/7 ringleader but raises a question over this area too. It points to the issue of what explosives were used (for the first week it was high grade military explosives) and where they were (a glaring gap in the BBC account which was unable to produce any evidence refuting reports they were under the trains).
One key question is: where did the BBC Conspiracy Files get their apparent CCTV videos, when Sue in the Mail is saying none have ever been released? One possibility is that Sue is not aware of the Commons report which released (at least to the BBC) more picture evidence, and which I drew attention to on this list a few weeks ago. It would be amazing even by BBC crap standards if the videos they presented were not taken on the day but some other time.
Politically, I would suggest the main thrust should now be that any enquiry must be overseen by relatives of the dead victims (not “survivors” – it is too easy to infiltrate fake survivors) and the Muslim community (not the sort of CIA Muslims the BBC manages to dig up to support the various New Labour wars). It should have unfettered access to all MI6 operatives and files and all allied intelligence services must produce relevant documentation and personnel on pain of limits on future co-operation if they fail.
The Niger forgeries, authenticated by the Blair government, were what swung American public opinion to back the invasion of Iraq, they were the only hard evidence to support the false accusation that Iraq was planning to acquire nuclear weapons. When MI6 authenticated the Niger forgeries for Blair, exposed as fakes in a morning by the UN when they finally saw them, it was either an act of gross incompetence or more likely grave criminality.
