Nick Kollerstrom – Terror on the Tube December 18, 2010
An Exercise in Logical Thought
The Met’s diagram of the first coach of the Piccadilly line tube train shows it packed with 112 passengers. It’s very helpful to have the witnesses located in this way. The blast was in the last third of the coach away from the driver. Its ‘centre’ is given as between the second set of double doors, however the damage and deaths went right to the end of the coach, and the door connecting that coach with the second coach was totally pulverised.
The distribution of dead bodies cluster around the blast centre.
Steve Lovegrove testified that . ‘The damage was concentrated in the rear third of the 1st carriage.’ He was right at the front of the adjacent 2nd carriage.
The police officer Aaron Debnam arrived at the front carriage, having entered via the Russell Square station, and described his ultimate horror at seeing the corpses scattered everywhere: ‘There was a huge hole in the floor three-quarters of the way along the carriage and the ceiling was hanging down with all the wiring exposed’ with hardly an intact window in sight. The far door of the first carriage was damaged beyond recognition, crumpled like a piece of paper. Blood was everywhere.
As with Edgware Road, we hear accounts of the coach being lifted off the rails, and the injuries all seem to be of legs and feet.
- Teenager Joe Orr a few feet away from the blast (position 66) recalled how ‘The carriage had been ripped apart. There was blood everywhere, and limbs blown away from bodies. He heard someone scream, ‘My leg, where’s my leg?” Then a lady said to him “My foot’s missing”. (to The Mirror, 11th July)
- Gracia Hormugos, in that dreadful last third of the coach (position 92) recalled how: ‘My whole body was shaking. I felt like I was being electrocuted. The guy next to me lost his leg. I could see the bone. I was trying to help him, trying to keep him awake:’ (Telegraph 9 July).
- Gill Hicks right on top of the main blast (position 79) lost both of her legs.
The construction of Lindsey’s position
As usual the Inquest faces the problem of no witnesses seeing a ‘terrorist’ nor any CCTV record of such. How to resolve this? The modern syntax of ‘terror’ involves hydrogen peroxide bottles being ‘found.’ Any ‘terror cell’ discovered by the police is going to have these, any hapless Muslim marched off to jail on a ‘terror’ charge may well have had these ‘discovered’ in his house. Such bottles served the purpose of helping to locate ‘Lindsey’ in the Piccadilly line carriage – as we’ll see in the dialogue quoted below. After all, if the public will believe that black pepper and peroxide can blow apart tube coaches like a can of sardines, why not have a few bottles around to be on the safe side?
Other ‘clues’ such as Jermaine Lindsey’s passport and his driving licence – such vital material for a jihad warrior to take with him on his final journey – (Inquest, Dec 17 am, 133:8 – 134:2) were located next to his body by the ‘anti-terror’ squad on the 17th of July, a few days after they had been to his home in Aylesbury. One would here appreciate having some comments by his widow at the Inquest.
As well as his passport and driving licence, clever police also found his certificate of mobile phone insurance, with his name on – that really settles his identity beyond doubt, we may be sure. Is there some Jihad training manual with instructions on how to get to Paradise – don’t forget to take your driving license and mobile phone insurance, otherwise how can they be sure who you are? Just your passport may not be enough these days.
We do not gather why all of these paper documents should have been so fireproof.
There was the slightly larger problem, that ‘Lindsay’’s body with ‘clues’ such as peroxide bottles and ID such as mobile phone insurance were found right at the end of the carriage, by the last single set of doors, whereas the blast centre was located about twelve to fifteen feet away, between the double doors. The story is not matching up. It didn’t match up in the previous two coaches – the Aldgate and Edgware road coaches had alleged blast epicentres quite separate from the constructed ‘terrorist’ position. It is a major constructive value of the Inquest, in that it gives maps of the blasted coaches where these two points just cannot coincide: the story falls apart. But, ‘Lindsay’ is a deal further away from the main or primary blast area, than were either of the other two.
Here is an extract from Detective Inspector John Brunsden’s testimony to the Inquest: (Dec 17 am, 131:20 – 132:8)
Q. In that area, area Z, you did you find a plastic bottle which had been cut round an edge as opposed to simply destroyed in the blast?
A. Yes, that’s what it looked like to me.
Q. Why did that bottle seem to you to be out of place?
A. Obviously in the Anti-terrorist Branch we learn a reasonable amount about explosives, and we were very conscious of the fact that explosives can be made from peroxide-based materials, and peroxide can be contained in plastic bottles, and so I was concerned that this may have something to do with that.
Q. Was that bottle found in the near vicinity of a male body to whom you formally gave the exhibit JB3?
A. Yes, that is correct, sir.
Q: When the body was moved, did you find a piece of circuit board attached to his body and also attached to his body another piece of plastic bottle which, again, had had a segment cut from it?
A. Yes, that is correct, sir.
Q. So in very close proximity to his body?
He was later questioned by Mr Patterson: (136:1-7)
Q. Just one or two additional exhibits, please, Officer. I think there were other similar peroxide bottles that were found on the train that appeared to have the neck cut off them, rather like the one that you’ve already mentioned.
A. Yes, that is correct.
Q. I think there was one JB228, which was at area Y, so at that rear part of the carriage but –
A. On the other side.
Thus a peroxide bottle was ‘found’ on the other side of the coach at the far end.
Jude Obi walks away
We are interested in testimony from Lilly OKeefe or Jude Obi, both right next to the alleged position of ‘Lindsay’, as well as a few others in that crowded corner of the coach.
Mr Obi was right next to Lindsay – on the Government’s Fairy Tale from Hell. After the blast, he gets up and walks away. He had no idea a bomb had gone off, he told the Inquest, and thought the carriage had derailed.
Gosh, fancy that.
Mr Obi clambered over people and left the wrecked carriage to walk along the track with a group to Russell Square, where he then helped the injured onto the platform.
The Inquest should be invited to answer the following Question: Was Lindsay a suicide bomber, or not? Are they saying he let off his rucksack which he was wearing – or, did he put it a safe distance away before it blew up? Can they please make up their mind on this matter? If he was wearing it, how come Mr Obi right next to him could just walk away and had no idea a bomb had gone off? If he was not wearing it, but had left it twelve feet away where the main blast centre appeared, then how come he was killed, could he not just have walked away like Mr Obi?
In the unfolding of this Inquest, there is no intelligent mind evaluating matters. No intelligent mind ever asks a question or makes a comment. The Inquest’s narrative just unfolds, wallowing endlessly in grief and horror. Nothing in its story of the Piccadilly line blast make sense – but, it’s good enough for the British media.
The police are keeping a huge ‘Holmes’ database on the 7/7 story. Let’s just say that in Sherlock Holmes’ day the police sought for clues – they did not plant them.
