New footage has been released showing three of the London bombers carrying out a dummy run for the July 7th London attacks, only a couple of weeks before that terrible day.
Newly released CCTV footage shows the 7 July London bombers staged a practice run nine days before the attack.
Detectives reconstructed the bombers' movements after studying thousands of hours of film as part of the probe into the blasts which killed 52 people.

CCTV images show three of the bombers entering Luton station, before travelling to King's Cross station where they are also pictured.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

Well this evidence surely helps prove that there is more than just co-oincidence linking the events of 7/7 and these men. Hopefully, as the article states, we will be able to find more information and hopefully link the events to people 'higher up' if they can find any meetings between the bombers and anyone else on the footage they have access to.
If nothing else, this at least shows that the accused were seen together and apparantly carrying out a dry run of the events that occured a couple of weeks later through their recorded movements.

These guys look anything but sinister and suicidal. They fit the cliche perfectly - they're just regular folks. The investigators are doing an excellent job at piecing together their morbid puzzle.

That's the scary thing dude, you can't identify people like that just by looking at them.

Look at Ian Huntley who killed the little girls, he was on TV appealing for them.
Over the years I've seen people on TV including parents of murdered children that actually killed them themselves, they all look normal and peaceful, even sad obviously. But they still carried out the crimes.
You can't identify people by looking at them, occasionally some people will loose their cool and look twitchy, but you can rarely tell by seeing someone generally. You can see a mugshot of someone and they will look evil, look at a family photo and they look sweet as pie.

Hell, at work we get a lot of servicemen and women, they have to kill people for their jobs. But you wouldn't know that they come from the base to look at them, unless they happen to come in wearing uniform.
They have normal lives, watching normal programs, listen to normal music and have normal faces and hobbies. But at some point they have to kill people becasue it's their duty.

Don't forget that these bombers and the others do what they do because they see it as their duty, misguided as they are.
Just becasue they did what they did doesn't mean they wouldn't have helped an old lady across the street, or sat at home watching cartoons and it doesn't mean they would walk around with menacing looks and signs on their heads' saying 'suicide bomber'.

Yeah, I guess I just tend to imagine suicide bombers as appearing more like this:

...Than, like, athletic looking, clean-shaven snappy dressers.

Your joking? Don't be offended I ask, it's just that some people would say it and they would be serious! LOL

well, yeah, there's some more footage of the group....

probably after their rafting trip together.

the circumstantial evidence & the official story-line being manufactured
does not totally convince me that these dudes were not just patsies
getting a little pay-day for playing the actors role of terrorists planting explosive devices in the London underground!

???Are we to believe that the analysts didn't get lip-readers to view the video images??...even if they did...could we expect an accurate & truthful,
and verifiable account??

CCTV is usually using time lapse, so lipreading is impossible. Not a conspiracy, a technical fact.
Also, how do you explain one of the bombers on video and in English admitting to the attacks? Or did the crew behind Shrek get a crack at the job with their amazing computer graphics?
I'm sick of this lame patsy excuse, it just doesn't cut it - what they turned up on at least TWO occasions to carry out mock attacks in the same way?
They didn't notice bombs in their bags?
They accidently pushed the buttons?
One of them didn;t make a video stating why they were carrying out the attack? Or did he think that was part of the 'exercise' too?

Get real - they planned it - they did it - simple.

So hard to accept that fact, yet so simple to believe some elaborate ploy involving the implied participation of :

* Dozens or hundreds of willing people
* Highly, highly advanced computer graphics
* Highly advanced speech synthesis techniques that exceed our current capabilities
* Corrupt government officials, emergancy services workers, special forces, etc etc of the higest degree.

etc etc

Actually I can see why the conspiracy theory is more appealing becasue it's just so, gosh darn, much more exciting!

Gee whizz!

They didn't live anywhere near London and the rafting trip was in Wales.
