but didn't I already read that these bombs were high tech explosives with sophisticated timing devices?
I don't buy the suicide bomber story
now if you are a suicide bomber then i dont think you would care about resetting your timer if you could take some people out with you when your bomb exploded.
what needs to be known is if they bought return tickets to london or even a travelcard
how do you go from being on the underground to having your flat raided to identify incriminating materials?
What if it was some kind of jewellery, or his driving licence if he had one?
Carrying anything that identifies you is not minimising the risk its doubling it..
And whos to say the id isnt fake...
pakistan is in asia
It would be "Pakistani" not "Paki
It's political correctness gone wrong, there's nothing offensive about it
APparently the big break was that they were reported missing no? Is leeds a place where one might expect islamist terrorists to come from in england? I mean, if there's a gang shoot-out in NYC, i wouldn't expect the police to follow-up on tips involving people from the Hamptons before the leads on people from Harlem. Is leeds a place that the police anticipate problems from? So a report about a missing muslim from leeds who went to london would set off red flags no?

Then as I posted in response to Nygdan,
The police were just alerted by the names of the missing and not from information that may or may not have been given to the police by the family. The police then either would have to have previously identified these guys as being british muslim extremeists in order for the police to react as fast as they have.
Everyone takes it for granted that the civilians in the UK are innocent, but are they really disconnected from the UK foreign policy? Especially, as the civilians have voted for the Labour Party and therefore endorsed the war in Iraq, endorsed the killing of innocent civilians in Iraq? Surely, if innocent Iraqis as a whole could be punished for its dictator, then this should apply even more to a democracy where the people’s voice dictates policy and manifesto. Hence, the Labour government, the Labour voters and the silent spectators are clearly guilty in the major state-terrorism, and genocide against Iraq.

The 4 bombers have been picked up twice on cameras at Luton station and at King Cross, then all 4 are believed to have died at each explosion. (Edited for length)
