Surely if four Muslims were approached and asked to co-ordinate attacks across London for an 'exercise' they would smell a rat and not want to be involved

There is still strong evidence of high-grade possibly military explosives, and possibly the combination of both high-grade and homemade
Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said the bag had been in the cemetery more than a year, and appeared to have been taken from a military installation. Mr Kelly said the explosive material was the same as that used in the 2005 London transit bombings. He said the explosives were not of a type commonly available for civilian purchase and could have been taken from a military stockpile "years ago".
Eight bricks of the powerful C4 explosives were discovered in a plastic bag at the historic New York City Marble Cemetery. New York police said the explosives were "very potent" military grade of the same type used the 2005 London attacks.
Nothing about the whole conspiracy is conclusive, it is all based on speculation.
I would think extremists with links to 'al Qaeda' or whichever terror organisation would have access to a military grade of anything they wanted, but the truth is they went to B&Q and bought from domestic suppliers. These bombs were completely home-made. The video footage has been released, so this can't be refuted.
Yes it shouldn't be us doing the investigating, which is why there is an ongoing inquest that is turning up all sorts of new evidence to the public and throwing the whole conspiracy theory off course...
Now the whole theory will have to be restarted to take the new evidence into account because until then, in my own opinion, it is incorrect.
I'm willing to accept the idea of a conspiracy (This is why I am here after all) but I'm struggling to see it in this case ...911 on the other hand was so elaborate it screams conspiracy. If our government really wanted to strike fear into the British public then they failed. 7/7 has the work of half baked amateur terrorists written all over it. Do you not remember the I.R.A?
A conspiracy is not impossible, but do you agree that four young and naive Muslim extremists taking their anger out on 'the West' is much more likely?
Hugo Keith QC, for the inquest, said: "He spends a very significant amount of time rooting around in a rucksack containing a highly unstable, cooled explosive mixture."
