Anonymous men in black ski-masks arrest suspects at gunpoint in a blaze of media publicity and spirit them away in white forensic coveralls, obscuring their identity. Charles Clark, the Home Secretary will get his e-mail and phone taps, since the ‘fourth bomber’ was traced through his mobile phone, after he was allowed to flee to Rome to demonstrate the need for ID’s and more stringent transport security across Europe.
The first person charged with terrorism for the failed 21/7 attack, is Ismael Abdurahman who was not a suicide bomber, but knew the whereabouts of the wanted man, Hussain Osman.

Police Commissioner, Sir Ian Blair says foreigners can be deported to countries where they may be tortured or executed, because “the mood has changed” and human rights laws, which are now superfluous, will be amended accordingly to jail thought criminals at home.

But before troops can leave Iraq in chaos to set their sights on Iran, another ‘terror attack’ will be necessary.
A worst case scenario was invoked by men wearing chemical suits in London. Military ‘training exercises’ or FEMA ‘drills’ in coming months should be viewed ominously, especially if the Administration is “looking the other way” on holiday or distracted by the staged commotion around the space shuttle. The neocons want a situation which will cause public outrage and upheaval, evacuations and quarantine, to justify Martial Law.
