Flashback: Bin Laden's No 2 'captured in Iran'

04-08-2005 20:33

While the people who brought us "Iraq has WMD!!" are claiming this man has 'vowed more terror in London' - claims that are being uncritically repeated by the media - it is interesting to remember that he was arrested three years ago.

Meanwhile, the compelling, independently-verifiable evidence that would support Bliar's Conspiracy Theories about 7/7/21 (like video images from the most surveilled country in the world) is still suspiciously absent. The timing is very interesting, and bears investigation. Note the careful stage dressing, the placement of the rifle behind him, which is not typical of legitimate "terrorist" messages.
