London 7/7London Metro Bombings 7/7/2005

The most recent major act of terrorism in the western world, the London train bombings were referred to by the English as “our September 11th.”

As with 9/11, the official, public version of 7/7 is inadequate, oversimplified and most likely an orchestrated deception. Little known reports in the mainstream media and alternative, independent research have made a compelling case for 7/7 being a false flag operation.

The London commuter train bombings, following those in Madrid, Spain, were a key point in the “War on Terror.” The bombings brought terror home to the United States’ closest ally, Britain. Paralleling 9/11, the British public was indoctrinated through fear and terror to support measures to restrict their own liberties and submit to their government’s will in return for “protection.”

From a Truth Movement perspective, the motivations of 7/7 as a false flag operation are clear: to control through intimidation and to justify increasing domestic control and imperialistic ambitions.

While the Madrid bombings didn’t seem to inspire much controversy or alternative analyses, London was immediately jumped on by independent researchers and skeptics. Among those who already doubted the official version of 9/11, London 7/7 was a critical moment.

At first, many 9/11 skeptics appeared restrained in jumping to conclusions or labeling London as another false-flag. But it didn’t take long for some very disturbing details to slip through the media or be uncovered by independent researchers.

Just as with 9/11, these underreported and suppressed details are too concrete and compelling to be dismissed as coincidence or crackpot theorizing. Most people would never hear of these points unless they actively sought out alternative sources.

While mainstream TV news reality explained the London bombings as a simple continuation of Al Qaeda’s fight against the west, individuals and independent media with a broader Truth Movement approach placed London firmly in the context of a historical chain of false flag terror events.


  • There were mock terror drills of the same scenario (bombs in the subways) going on at the exact times and locations that the real bombings occurred. This was reported by the BBC and CBC in interviews with Peter Power, a former senior Scotland Yard official specializing in counterterrorism and Managing Director of Visor Consultants, a private security firm conducting the drills and on contract to the London Metropolitan Police.

  • According to a report of the Associated Press correspondent in Jerusalem, the Israeli embassy in London had been advised in advance by Scotland Yard of an impending bomb attack: “Just before the blasts, Scotland Yard called the security officer at the Israeli Embassy to say they had received warnings of possible attacks, the official said. He did not say whether British police made any link to the economic conference.” (AP, 7 July 2005)

  • A British citizen named Haroon Rashid Aswat, who has been called the “mastermind” of the London bombings, has connections MI-6. 3

  • Just as the Bush administration heavily resisted any 9/11 investigation, Tony Blair rejected calls for an inquiry into the 7/7 bombings.

  • Surveillance cameras in nearly all the bombed subways and buses were suspiciously turned off or out of order.

  • It has been established that the “suicide” bombers were most likely not intending to kill themselves.

  • Witnesses and physical evidence indicate that the bombs were not placed in backpacks but actually underneath the trains. Bruce Lait, an injured witness said, “The policeman said ‘mind that hole, that’s where the bomb was’. The metal was pushed upwards as if the bomb was underneath the train. They seem to think the bomb was left in a bag, but I don’t remember anybody being where the bomb was, or any bag,” 4
