Most extraordinary lack of result, this will certainly lead to speculation and new conspiracy theories as to background of London bombing!
LONDON (UPI) Jan. 29 – 10 minutes ago — A leaked document reveals that despite months of investigation, MI5 has discovered almost nothing about the July 7, 2005, bombings in London.
The Sunday Times of London reports a secret report for Tony Blair and senior ministers states: “We know little about what three of the bombers did in Pakistan, when attack planning began, how and when the attackers were recruited, the extent of any external direction or assistance and the extent and role of any wider network.”
The eight-page report by Britain’s Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre concedes MI5 does not know whether the attacks of July 7 and July 21 were linked or if they were directed by al-Qaida chiefs.
MI5’s lack of progress has angered victims’ relatives and survivors of the July 7 attacks that killed 56 people, including four suicide bombers.
Rachel North, who was injured in the King’s Cross bombing, said: “I am disappointed that they have not come up with any real leads. Most of the survivors want to know not just what happened but why it happened. This absolutely underlines the need for a transparent, independent public inquiry.”
The Killing of Jean Charles de Menezes ◊ by suskind
Last week some of the results of a six-month Independent Police Complaints Commission investigation into the killing of Jean Charles de Menezes were published in the UK Sunday Times.
The shoot-to-kill order could only have come from the Gold Shield Commander, and that is Cressida Dick. Commander Dick has told investigators that she ordered officers only to stop de Menezes from going down into the Stockwell tube station: Her message: “Stop the man.” She said she had only had two hours sleep the night before.

“But I will not let myself be reduced to silence.”
