The 7/7 bombings were not the work of Al Qaeda. That is the conclusion of a report to be released in the next few weeks. Instead, the bombings appear to have been carried out by 4 men who believed in an extreme form of Islam, the promise of immortality and also enjoyed Western lifestyle
The official inquiry into the 7 July London bombings will say the attack was planned on a shoestring budget from information on the internet, that there was no 'fifth-bomber' and no direct support from al-Qaeda, although two of the bombers had visited Pakistan.

The first forensic account of the atrocity that claimed the lives of 52 people, which will be published in the next few weeks, will say that attacks were the product of a 'simple and inexpensive' plot hatched by four British suicide bombers bent on martyrdom.

Far from being the work of an international terror network, as originally suspected, the attack was carried out by four men who had scoured terror sites on the internet. Their knapsack bombs cost only a few hundred pounds, according to the first completed draft of the government's definitive report into the blasts.

In addition to releasing information that these men seem to have acted alone, the sources linked below also seem to indicate that the Iraq War played a part in the 7/7 bombings.
One has to wonder if the whole 7/7 scenario was deliberately made to place the blame on al-Qaeda and give a face to terrorism

It makes me wonder if the war in Iraq is fighting Terror, or creating it where it didn't exist before...

If this was an AQ attack, then it seems to be a continuation

If this is from some independant element, angered by the iraq war, then one would have to assume that it wouldn't have occured if the War in Iraq hadn't...

Fighting or creating terror...
we had better figure that one out, before going any further with that justification

Not really a part of the story, but this information was reported in late March. It says the police/intelligence community were not to blame for 7/7, but that they could have done better.

The committee is also critical of the complicated and secretive system of alert and threat levels.

The national threat level was lowered from "severe, general" to "substantial" just before July 7.

Committee members found this made no difference to the bombers' plans, but that the public needs to be better informed, the BBC reported.
