The cover stories are flying thick and fast as British investigators try to put
some kind of cap on the London attacks.
It turns out, if you believe the Brooklyn Bridge is for sale, that actual IDs
of bombers were found in separate piles of rubble at the sites of the blasts.
These IDs must have been engraved deeply in three-foot-thick steel.
Remember the 9/11 hijacker passport that floated out of the crashing jetliner
on 9/11 and landed intact on a New York street?
Here is a Sky News report out of London. There are too many points to make
up front, so I've inserted comments in caps and brackets as
BOMBER DIED IN TUBE BLAST
It is "highly likely" one of the Tube bombers died in the attacks
on the Underground network, police say. [LATER IN THIS PIECE WE'LL LEARN
THAT IT'S LIKELY ALL THE BOMBERS ARE DEAD.]
The suspected bombers travelled down from the West Yorkshire and met at Kings
Cross station shortly before the attacks were launched on Thursday morning,
police said at a press conference.
Their images were captured by CCTV cameras.
Personal documents have been found at all four bomb scenes and although the
four attackers are thought to have died [OH THEY'RE ALL CONVENIENTLY
DEAD BUT THE BOMBS THEMSELVES WERE ON TIMERS, WHICH WOULD HAVE GIVEN THE KILLERS
TIME TO WALK AWAY FROM THE BOMBS---I SEE---IT WASN'T SUICIDE BOMBINGS, IT WAS
JUST FOUR COINCIDENTAL SCREW-UPS BY THE TERRORISTS THAT RESULTED IN THEIR DEATHS]
police were careful not to say whether Britain had suffered its first suicide
Anti-terror police said they had traced the bombers and six arrest warrants
have been issued for addresses in West Yorkshire.
Police said there was forensic evidence that meant it was "very likely"
the bomber responsible for the train explosion at Aldgate died there. [WHAT
EVIDENCE? WILL WE EVER SEE IT?]
One of the four men had been reported missing by his family on the day of the
attacks and his property was found at the bus blast scene. The second man's
property was found at the scene of the Aldgate blast and the third man's property
at both the Aldgate and Edgware Road blasts. [PROPERTY? PLANTED BY OPS
AGENTS? DESKS, CHAIRS, JEWELRY? ENCASED IN STEEL VAULTS?]
One man has just been arrested in west Yorkshire in connection with the attacks.
Deputy Assistant Commissioner Peter Clarke, head of Scotland's Yard anti-terrorist
branch, said: "The investigation quite early led us to have concerns about
the movement and activities of four men, three of whom came from the West Yorkshire
area. "We are trying to establish their movements in the run-up to last
week's attack and specifically to establish whether they all died in the explosions.
[THEY'RE ALL LIKELY DEAD. NO MAYBE NOT. LOOKS LIKE YES. WE CAN'T TELL.
BUT WE HAVE THEIR 'PROPERTY' RIGHT THERE AT THE BLAST SCENES. MAYBE IT WAS PLANTED
SO THEY COULD ESCAPE. TYPICAL AL QAEDA. PRETEND TO BE A SUICIDE BOMBER AND THEN
ESCAPE. FORGET THE OTHER COVER STORY ABOUT THE AL QAEDA MO BEING SUICIDE AND
GOING TO PARADISE. THIS IS DIFFERENT. BUT IT'S THE SAME. IT'S AL QAEDA.]
We executed six warrants under the Terrorism Act at premises in the West Yorkshire
These included the home addresses of three of the four men. A detailed forensic
examination will now follow and this is likely to take time to complete."
[THE PUBLIC HAS NO RIGHT TO LEARN THE DETAILS OF THAT EXAMINATION. NOT
NOW. NOT EVER. WE'LL ONLY RELEASE THE CONCLUSIONS.]
He continued: "We know that all four of these arrived in London by train
on the morning. We have identified CCTV footage showing the four men at King's
Cross Station shortly before 8.30am on that morning, July 7. [THEY POSED
FOR A JOINT PICTURE FOR THE CAMERAS? BUT THEY WERE BRIGHT ENOUGH TO LEAVE 'PROPERTY'
AT THE BLAST SCENES AS EVIDENCE OF DEATH, AFTER WHICH, WITH THEIR MUGS ON CAMERA,
THEY ESCAPED. SURE, THAT MAKES SENSE.]
"One of them who had set out from West Yorkshire was reported missing
by his family to the casualty bureau on July 7. We have been able to establish
that he was joined on his journey to London by three other men. We have since
found personal documents bearing the names of three of those four men close
to the seats of three of the explosions." [IN PRISTINE CONDITION,
NO DOUBT, WITH LARGE RED ARROWS POINTING TO THE NAMES, RIGHT THERE AT THE VERY
CENTERS OF THE BLAST SCENES. IMMORTAL IDs.] As regards to the man who
is missing, some of his property was found on the route 30 bus in Tavistock
Square. Property of a second man was found at the scene of the Aldgate bomb
and in relation to a third man property with his name was found at the Aldgate
and Edgware Road bombs." [BUNDLES OF CLOTHING WITH HIS NAME SEWN
ON LABELS? CLOTHING MADE OF ASBESTOS?] We have strong forensic evidence
that it is very likely that one of the men from West Yorkshire died at the explosion
Sky News terror expert Steve Park said the documents may have been deliberately
planted to "send police the wrong way". [STEVE PARK HAS JUST
RECEIVED A NEW ASSIGNMENT REPORTING ON BIRDS IN ALASKA. ANYWAY, WHO WOULD HAVE
DONE THE PLANTING OF EVIDENCE? TERRORISTS? AFTER THEY POSED FOR A JOINT PICTURE
IN FRONT OF A TV CAMERA ON THEIR WAY TO LONDON? SAY IT, STEVE. OPS AGENTS OR
COPS MUST HAVE PLANTED THE EVIDENCE.]
The news comes as armed police search a house in Leeds after the Army used
a controlled explosion to get in. [I THOUGHT THEY HAD PEOPLE OVER THERE
WHO COULD PICK LOCKS. AND IF THEY REMOTELY SUSPECTED EXPLOSIVE MATERIALS MIGHT
BE IN THE HOUSE, WAS THE CONTROLLED EXPLOSION DONE TO GAIN ENTRANCE OR TO DESTROY
It was the discovery that the bus bomber was likely to have died in the blasts
that triggered the raids. [AREN'T AMERICAN NEWS OUTLETS CLAIMING THE
REAL CLUE WAS PROVIDED BY A PHONE CALL ON THE 7TH FROM A FAMILY IN THAT NEIGHBORHOOD?
CAN'T THEY KEEP THEIR COVER STORIES STRAIGHT?] Hundreds of people were
evacuated from the area around Hyde Park Road, Burley.
No one was in the house at the time but armed officers had been used as a precaution.
Five other homes in Leeds had earlier been raided by police hunting the terrorists
behind last week's attacks.
Neighbours at one of the addresses said a 22-year-old man who lived there with
his family had gone missing. Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Ian Blair
said the raids were "directly connected" to Thursday's atrocity.
Hours later, police evacuated Luton railway station and car park to recover
a vehicle suspected of being linked with the terrorist attacks. The car was
blown up in two controlled explosions. [BLOWN UP WHEN? BEFORE OR AFTER
EVIDENCE WAS OBTAINED FROM THE CAR. SEEMS LIKE THE AUTHORITIES ARE BUSY BLOWING
UP KEY EVIDENCE. WAIT A FEW MINUTES. THEY'LL BLOW UP AREAS OF THE SUBWAY SYSTEM
WHERE THE BLASTS WENT OFF.]

This has to be one of the most transparent and amateur efforts at stitching
together cover stories I've ever run across. Right up there with 9/11 and the
