The British MI5 security service had investigated two of the men involved in the 7/7 London terrorist bombings, but determined that they weren't a threat to national security, according to information acquired by the UK paper The Independent. Shahzad Tanweer and Mohammad Sidique Khan, jointly responsible for 13 deaths including their own in the attacks, were known to the MI5 due to a routine 2004 terrorist threat assessment, but were dismissed as "clean skins" who had no ties to terrorism. The revelations will likely add pressure to the British government to launch an independent investigation into the 7/7 bombings.
Two of the four suicide bombers who killed 52 people in the July 7 attacks were scrutinised by MI5 last year but were not considered to be a threat, The Independent has learnt.

Shahzad Tanweer, 22, who detonated a rucksack bomb on the Tube train at Aldgate, is believed to have been indirectly linked to an alleged plot to build a bomb in 2004. It has already been established that the suspected mastermind, Mohammad Sidique Khan, 30, had been known to security services.

The disclosure that a second of the four bombers had come to the attention of MI5 is likely to increase pressure for a public inquiry into the London attacks and any failures in intelligence. Charles Clarke, the Home Secretary, is resisting setting up a wide-ranging independent inquiry, instead opting for a more limited "narrative" led by a civil servant. The Independent has also established that there are so many new terrorist suspects coming to the attention of the security agencies and Scotland Yard's anti-terrorist branch that there are not enough officers to investigate them all.

Hindsight is always 20/20, and mistakes like this can always be made (there were plenty made surrounding 9/11). But I think that the British government should have some type of inpedendent investigation into what happened, at least to get some more input on what needs to be changed to help prevent something like this from happening again.

If you were not there to witness the event, did not know those involved , it makes no difference in your life , don't squander what little time you have on these silly rumours and so called "EVENTS" or "OCCURENCES", they mean nothing to you , it is all politics , it is all someone elses game.
Just a game , just a game...

The real threat to worldwide security is the MI6 and the CIA, they are both suspected to have commit the London and Bali bombings... and after they are saying that those who done this are not dangerous.

They are liers because they know who did this. Why there isn't a public inquire? For both the 911 and 7/7 ? Because it would shock the world and create riots all over the world.

Hope the true will emerge in the next years so that the traitors will be punished.
