J7 London Bombings Dossier - Dossier Index

 

A Forensic Analysis of the 7/7 London Bombings
by David Minahan

 

Introduction

The London Bombings dossier is a well-researched study and analysis of the events of 7th July 2005 and was received by the July 7th Truth Campaign in hard-copy format. Since receiving the hard copy version of the dossier, J7 have managed to obtain electronic copies of the dossier's summaries from the author. J7 researchers have verified the research contained within the dossier and converted the in-depth printed dossier into the electronic version that is reproduced here.

The July 7th Truth Campaign are reproducing this dossier for the wealth of information it contains, the depth of research and its compilation of related pieces of information that, in the time that has passed since the events to which the dossier refers, seem to have disappeared from the public consciousness. J7 does not necessarily endorse the views, findings or conclusions contained in the dossier and is making the dossier available here for informational purposes.

The original dossier consisted of “print offs” of various internet items, arranged into folders. Each individual folder consisted of around ten “exhibits” annotated with reference numbers in the top right hand corner of the page. The folders were divided into twenty six subject headings, and in five cases into two sub folders. There were, therefore, a total of thirty one folders, and approximately three hundred and ten exhibits.

Although other relevant items came to light during the research, for ease of reference, each folder was restricted to ten items only. It is appreciated that different press reports may have come from the same agency source resulting in some duplication.

As with the original dossier, in reproducing the information contained within it, wherever possible, priority has been given to the statements of named witnesses, either quoted in the press or, ideally on their own blogs. Also contemporaneous, (or near contemporaneous) reports from local papers, in particular the Evening Standard and the Hampstead and Highgate Express, rather than national newspapers, feature significantly.

Each folder contains the writer's summary of its contents with reference made to certain of the exhibits. Hopefully, however, all the items are of relevance and not just those commented upon. The majority of the folders deal with sites of explosions, or suspected explosions. In addition there are eight that deal with background items - “advance warnings” “media restrictions” etc.

As far as possible the folders have been arranged so that related sites and subjects follow chronologically.

About the Dossier's Author, David Minahan

David writes:

"I was by occupation a claims investigator for an insurance company and later a leading firm of solicitors so I have some experience of "forensic" matters. I was also some years ago the National President of a major Trade Union (MSF now merged with the AEEU to form Amicus).

I am convinced that there has been a massive cover up and campaign of disinformation about this matter."

The London Bombings Dossier Index

In the original dossier, each of the numbers referenced a particular folder in the hard-copy dossier which contained the exhibits. Here, each number links to a reproduction of the summary page in the dossier for the subject in question, along with links to the original sources of information.

Note: In the original dossier folders, items 1-15 and items 16-31 were presented as two separate binders of information respectively.

Conclusions

The primary purpose of this exercise has been to collate information in as structured a form as possible so that a reader can make up his or her mind as to the implications.

The writer himself has come to the startling conclusion that there were in all probability eight explosions in the Capital on the 7th July in addition to the four publicly acknowledged; and that there is a possibility this figure may be as high as seventeen.

The lower estimate would be correct if the blasts referred to in the following folders were one and the same (ie a single explosion at each group of sites) (index numbers 1 & 2) (3, 4, 5 & 6) (7 & 8) (10 & 11) (22 & 25) and if there was a device on a train between Kings Cross and Euston Square; one additional bus bomb; and a single explosion at Kings Cross Station!

If, however, there were individual explosions at all the locations specified in the groups above, plus one at Old Street and a total of three bus explosions (as was originally reported) then the higher figure emerges.

Conceivably the total could be even greater as there are some indications that there may have been an explosion on a Northern line train coming into Kings Cross; and in an unspecified building in the Euston area.

There are also a number of “second hand” accounts of a shooting at Canary Wharf.

There is little doubt that (as outlined in the “advance warnings” folders 12 & 13) the authorities knew in advance that something was going on. It is also beyond dispute that strenuous efforts were made to limit media reporting (28 & 29) not least in the case of the two Benton sisters from Kentucky (exhibit MR18).

Was there concern at what they saw, or didn’t see?

Motivation

If the above conclusions are even partly correct the question arises as to why the “powers that be” should embark upon such an extraordinary programme of subterfuge?

Even the most enthusiastic conspiracy theorist must surely admit that it would be absurd for anybody to embark on a ‘false flag” type of operation and then go to great lengths to hide the success of it.

Is it more likely that the explanation stems from a desire, on the part of the government, or the security services, or both, to cover their backs and not to be seen to have ‘egg on their faces'?

Misunderstandings?

Anybody arguing that the official version of events is correct would need to explain an extraordinary catalogue of apparent mistakes, failures and inaccuracies on the part of the authorities!

At a press conference on the 8th July, Sir Ian Blair explained that the earlier reports of explosions at certain stations arose from misunderstandings. Apparently the noise of the blasts rolling down the tunnels, and survivors exiting at different stations caused the confusion. It seems, therefore, that inter alia the bomb on the Circle Line train between Liverpool Street and Aldgate caused a belief that there had been incidents at Aldgate, Aldgate East, Liverpool Street, Moorgate and Old Street stations.

Presumably as a result of the misunderstandings:-

London Ambulance Service dispatched resources to Moorgate Underground Station (7 - M7)

London Fire Brigade sent a fire rescue unit to Liverpool Street and later at 0953 redeployed it to Moorgate (7 - M10).

London Fire Brigade also sent a unit to Euston Square, arriving at 0941 (7M10).

Decisions were taken to deploy troops, including at Liverpool Street (15EM5) and at 1030 to withdraw the emergency services coordinating headquarters from central London and relocate at Hendon Police College (15EM1).

At the same press conference Deputy Commissioner Andy Hayman, referring to the Kings Cross - Russell Square train, declared “it's yet to be the case for us to get near the carriage” he also spoke of the explosion on the tube train “in Aldgate travelling towards Liverpool Streeet” (2A-LS7).

The latter is just one of a large number of official statements placing explosions at loci that differ from the orthodox version of events.

Most remarkably the Prime Minister, speaking to the House of Commons on the 11th July 2005, advised of four explosions:- “One between Aldgate East and Liverpool Street; one between Russell Square and Kings Cross:-” (4 - AE-LS9) This could not have been a slip of the tongue as Baroness Scotland made an identical statement to the House of Lords.

Independent Public Inquiry

It can, no doubt, be argued that human error is a more likely explanation for the many inaccuracies and contradictions that have come to light, than that of a massive state “cover up”. One which would require the continuing silence of numerous eye witnesses, and the cooperation, amongst others, of the emergency services, the media and sections of the judiciary?

Nonetheless, it appears "prima facie”, that this is what has happened, that Parliament, the British people and the world have been lied to at the highest level.

The need for an Independent Public Inquiry can not be overstated!
