One Year Later


I had thought to write something about the one-year anniversary of the London bombings. Then I remembered writing at Green September about some very strange coincidences concerning the "exercises" happening at the exact same time as the attacks.

Thank God all of these nagging questions have been put to rest.

Curiouser and Curiouser

This is the standard response people are receiving from Peter Power of Visor Consultants. He says once again that his firm was running, for an unnamed client, a simulation of bombings on the London Underground.

Thank you for your message. Given the volume of emails about events on 7 July and a commonly expressed misguided belief that our exercise revealed prescient behaviour, or was somehow a conspiracy (noting that several websites interpreted our work that day in an inaccurate / naive / ignorant / hostile manner) it has been decided to issue a single email response as follows: It is confirmed that a short number of 'walk through' scenarios planed [sic] well in advance had commenced that morning for a private company in London (as part of a wider project that remains confidential) and that two scenarios related directly to terrorist bombs at the same time as the ones that actually detonated with such tragic results. One scenario in particular, was very similar to real time events. "However, anyone with knowledge about such ongoing threats to our capital city will be aware that (a) the emergency services have already practiced several of their own exercises based on bombs in the underground system (also reported by the main news channels) and (b) a few months ago the BBC broadcast a similar documentary on the same theme, although with much worse consequences [??]. It is hardly surprising therefore, that we chose a feasible scenario - but the timing and script was nonetheless, a little disconcerting. "In short, our exercise (which involved just a few people as crisis managers actually responding to a simulated series of activities involving, on paper, 1000 staff) quickly became the real thing and the players that morning responded very well indeed to the sudden reality of events. "Beyond this no further comment will be made and based on the extraordinary number of messages from ill informed people, no replies will henceforth be given to anyone unable to demonstrate a bona fide reason for asking (e.g. accredited journalist / academic).

Let's review, shall we?

On the morning of July 7, Visor Consultants were running a series of simulations of bombings on the London Underground.

At the precise time the bombs went off.

In the same locations.

From a BBC 5 radio interview on the morning of the attacks :
POWER: At half past nine this morning we were actually running an exercise for a company of over a thousand people in London based on simultaneous bombs going off precisely at the railway stations where it happened this morning, so I still have the hairs on the back of my neck standing up right now. HOST: To get this quite straight, you were running an exercise to see how you would cope with this and it happened while you were running the exercise? POWER: Precisely, and it was about half past nine this morning, we planned this for a company and for obvious reasons I don't want to reveal their name but they're listening and they'll know it. And we had a room full of crisis managers for the first time they'd met and so within five minutes we made a pretty rapid decision that this is the real one and so we went through the correct drills of activating crisis management procedures to jump from slow time to quick time thinking and so on.

What a strange coincidence.

It becomes stranger when you add to it the fact that several of the American government alphabet agencies were running simulations on September 11, 2001 that included terrorists crashing commercial airliners into buildings in the U.S.

I have been a skeptic of both the conspiracy theories and the generally accepted story of 9/11.

I am very careful about the things I say and write about September 11, because it is such a complex and emotionally-charged issue.

But, my friends, what are the odds of two terrorist attacks, on two different continents, four years apart, happening at the same time simulations of the exact kind of attack are being staged?

UPDATE: I never thought I would be updating a year-old post but according to this Alex Jones video, he used "actuary tables"to figure out the odds of just such a coincidence:

According to Alex Jones, the odds of the attacks on September 11, 2001 and the London bombings of July 7, 2005 both occurring while drills of the exact same sort of attacks were being staged are:

1 in 300,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.

That's greater than the estimated number of grains of sand on Earth.

Well, that clears that up.

'Is this real, or a part of the exercise?' [9/11] ==== Robert: Excellent analysis! Yes, this bizarre "coincidence", like those remarkably "convenient" September 11 war games, has a genuine stench of official complicity about it. It would seem utterly preposterous (and amazingly audacious) of the collaborators to have employed the same type of "drill" ruse a SECOND time to facilitate an attack, *except* for the fact that it is the ONE sure way to nullify all established security measures! In the event of an "ongoing excercise", responses are strictly simulated, while any *actual* attacks that may occur are, of course, entirely REAL. ==== From Power's reply: "... for a private company in London (as part of a wider project that remains confidential) ... ==== One can only wonder: 1) whether the alleged "private company" was in any way affiliated with Air America or similar fronts; 2) WHY even the *generalities* of the "wider project" (including who was ultimately responsible for it), if merely "coincidental", have been so closely guarded. This was supposedly an innocuous, routine exercise -- a mere *simulation* of attacks on London's public transit system. That being the case, why the immense shroud of secrecy? One would naturally *assume* that authority for conducting any such "drill" would reside ultimately in some level of the British government. (Or isn't their public transit system PUBLIC??) So it seems remarkably telltale that overall accountability for the project has been strictly concealed. ==== VERY curious indeed! I'd say the appropriate slogan for this series of misadventures should undoubtedly be "Fooled again." (Of course, it could only bolster nearly oil-less Britain's "national interests" to foster a little domestic enthusiasm for the "War on Terror".)
