Two days before the London subway bombings, Fed-Master Alan Greenspan flushed nearly $40 billion in liquidity into financial markets. The sudden activity was an astonishing departure from the current policy of tightening interest rates to stifle inflation. The Chairman has not explained his erratic behavior, but there’s growing speculation that Greenspan may have had information about the likelihood of terrorist attacks and decided to “preemptively” head-off a run on the markets. As it turns out, his actions may have been a positive factor in stabilizing the market following the incident, (check: The Cunning Realist; “following the money” for more on the Fed’s unusual action:
cunningrealist.blogspot.com...) but that doesn’t address the larger issue of whether Greenspan had inside information that an attack was imminent.
people are unaware that the Federal Reserve gets information directly from the CIA. Perhaps, the level of “chatter” was sufficiently high to warrant the extraordinary measures. (“The Fed almost doubled its temporary pool in just a few days!”) That doesn’t explain, however, why alarms were not raised in England. In fact, as Democracy Now reported on July 19, “London lowered the security threat just before the July 7 bombings”.
The details now surfacing about the London bombings are familiar to those who have researched the anomalies surrounding September 11. In both cases the government version of events is shot with holes.

That is most interesting and it should call for the masses of people in both America and england to demand an explanation.

It seems to me you guys are grasping at straws.
I quoted 1 source from an Iraqi (I believe) newsite. The only thing from the blogger is the graph.
Two bloggers? Any other sources?
How can there be such huge foreknowledge of the attacks. If Greenspan knew then are you saying that hundreds of government employies knew but said nothing?
Why are so many so eager to blame their own governments instead of our enemies?

A bit of a coincidence that security was lowered in the WTC complex the around the Thursday before 9/11, and the spikes in airline put options only for the two companies that had their planes hijacked, and then lo and behold this financial action as London security was lowered. Interesting.
And what's more, both had military/police excercises practicing the exact things that were about to hit them, as they hit them. Interesting indeed. Coincidences abound...

Actually, the truth is that we are always in a position to demand explanations and for action to then be taken. To many feel that the general public has no power. This is not true. The problem is that we are lazy and complain instead of forming the masses together and protesting until something is done ( i am guily of being such a lazy person).
