Summary of gaping holes in UK government's official 7/7 narrative

08-03-2008 18:36

I don't pretend that this is 100% accurate or entirely comprehensive but it's my attempt - following the Press TV 'London Bombings Enquiry Debate' to sum up the most cogent holes in the official 7/7 story.

Sea Shepherd Crew Head South In Search Of Harpoons

08-03-2008 17:24

Sea Shepherd Conservation Society’s ship, the Steve Irwin, has broken off its pursuit of the Nisshin Maru to focus on the harpoon vessels to the south. At 1200 hours, Sea Shepherd changed course and began to head due south, as the Nisshin Maru continued westward. Contact was broken off with the Japanese factory ship at 63 degrees, 42 minutes south and 124 degrees, 56 minutes east.

“We have chased the factory ship for a solid week as they ran full out, back and forth across the Southern Ocean,” said Captain Paul Watson, Founder and President of Sea Shepherd. “After a chase of 1,776 nautical miles and three confrontations, I’ve decided to go investigate what the Yusshin Maru No. 2 is doing. We still have a working tracking device on that ship, so we know that it is less than half a day away and probably up to no good.”
