Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed “The London Bombings”

ISBN 0-7156-3583-2. Published by Duckworth in 2006. A book of two halves. Although praised on the cover by his peers, Gore Vidal and John Pilger, Ahmed never rises to the skills of these gentlemen. The first half of the book focuses on the actual events of 7/7. Here Ahmed’s case for a Public Enquiry is desperately weak. He picks holes in the ‘official’ story largely on matters of utter trivia through minor discrepancies in the story between the newspapers. He actually managed to prove that we mostly understand everything about how the 7/7 bombings occurred. However, towards the second half of the book Ahmed looks at the wider geopolitical surroundings to these events. His story covers UK, NATO and US duplicity in using Islamic radicals in bush wars from everywhere between the Balkans, North Africa and Central Asia. His links to the Balkans fiasco is triggered by the doubts about the source of the explosives for the 7/7 bombings. He follows war diamonds to West Africa to follow the money trail and at every turn he finds the UK Governments direct involvement in terrorism. The UK has been harbouring, protecting and paying Islamic radicals all over the hemisphere. The UK security services are so in bed with these people it is clear that the Government has no interest at all in finding out the truth. Not a greatly recommended book if you wish to know anything new about the 7/7 bombings. However, if you wish to learn about how the UK Government paddled itself up a creek in the pursuit of its corrupt agenda and the promotion of US hegemony then this is it. They have sold their soul to the Devil and he is collecting his victims amongst innocent UK citizens. Absolutely damning.
