There are a number of apparent inconsistencies in the official version
of events surrounding the July bombings which have led to questions, rumours
and conspiracy theories.
Many of these can be found on the web. Some call themselves truth campaigners,
other are the same people who believe 9/11 and the assassination of JFK
were all ordered by the American government.
They list evidence which apparently doesn't add up. For example, the
official Home Office report into the bombings stated that the four bombers
caught the 7.40am train from Luton to London. However, there was no 7.40
that morning, it had been cancelled. The Home Secretary, John Reid, apologized
for the error in parliament, blaming erroneous first-hand witness accounts.
Whichever train the bombers did catch, when they got to London, there
appears to be no photograph of the 4 of them together in the capital -
no CCTV either, despite London having one of the highest numbers of surveillance
cameras of any city in the world.
Of the one photograph there is of the men - questions have been raised
about its authenticity. It apparently shows railings coming out of mens'

7/7 London Tube Bombings Conspiracy

London bombings only leads us to one clear conclusion, that the attacks
had to have been orchestrated by or with help from the very highest levels
of British intelligence. " MySpace

The 4th Bomb - the eyewitness memoir
"The bandaged man in grey was in Tavistock Square rolling about on the
pavement 45 metres ahead of the bus wailing seconds after the explosion.
His antics were not the kind of sight a man with a heightened sense of
alertness given the clear and present danger would just imagine." http://www.the4thbomb.com
