#1 Investigators suspect that they got help and training from an Al Qaeda network in Pakistan that had targeted Britain before.

It's the 'P' word again... Clue by four for Mr Musharraf please...

#2 Zawahiri said the 7/21 bombs were "unauthorized" and I believe him. There is no connection between the 7/7 bombings and 7/21. 7/21 was offered up as a distraction, just as the April 2 train track bomb in Spain was a distraction. Both incidents were staged; the bombs were incorrectly wired so there was minimal danger. I do not mean to argue that the 7/21 bombers were all sweetness and light, nor do I contend that the Leganes apartment boomers were benign. They were terrorist @$$#0le$ who should have been rounded up anyway -- but they were set up.

This is a somewhat disturbing line of thought, I know, but it is neccessary to truly understand the origin of the genuine 7/7 and 3/11 bombings, both claimd by the Abu Hafs Al-Masri Brigades. I believe this information is closely related to another article Dan posted today, the article on telephone calls. Look for the Syrian Brothers. Remember Hama.

#3 It's not just the P word it's the religion too. The Islamic Republic of Pakistan it's actual name. Does anyone think you can shake hands with islam and not have to count your fingers afterwards? Better check the CIA world fact book for the really scary stuff about Pakistan, like their citizens average age.

#4 "The absence of hard data on 7/7 is striking," Shamit Saggar, a political science professor at the University of Sussex, said at the conference at the Royal United Services Institute think tank. "The only way we can explain that is as a significant circle of tacit support existing in that community."

#5 Aint it the truth RC! Professional muslims I know always respond with the line that the bombings were tragic but predictable considering our foreign policy. I presume they won't object, therefore, when they are forcibly repatriated due to their community's attempts to intimidate us into changing that policy by bypassing the democratic process and blowing up tube trains. And if these are intelligent professionals, God knows what the pond-life in that community thinks...

#6 "The only way we can explain that is as a significant circle of tacit support existing in that community."

A blindly flash of the obvious I'd say.

#9 Re terrorism & Muslems. What fraction of the total USA population are professional baseball players?

And yet we have TV networks, magazines, newspapers, restaurants, and more dedicated to baseball, and enough fans to clog cities before and after games. Those few professionals earn huge salaries, and thousands more earn good livings in jobs supporting those few.

#11 And what proportion of Germans were SS while others were ordinary Nazis. What of the population that were "moderate" or anti-Nazi. I guarantee you it's higher than the muslim population who are anti-islamosupremists. Oh why oh why did those Cowboys and Poms bomb the shit out of Germany and tear up those fine autobahns with tanks? Maybe the ICC can rectify that miscarriage of justice.

#12  "The only way we can explain that is as a significant circle of tacit support existing in that community."

And so it is that the "moderate Muslim" trundles off to join his other brethern, the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus in enduring mythical status.
