London Bombings and NY Subway Bomb Questions

Fitzgerald has his work cut out for him, esp. if he handles the House Impeachment probe which I hope he will.

The Drudge Report has linked to a new story by WNBC which seeks to shed some light on information provided to the NYPD in a recent briefing. The briefing surrounded the recent London attacks on 7/7 and 7/21. Among highlights of the briefing is the revelation that both attacks employed similar explosives but differing detonation methods. original news

The suicide bombers cooked up their explosives using mundane items like hydrogen peroxide. They stored them in a fancy commercial refrigerator that was out of place in their grimy flat. And cell phones likely were used to set them off. "Initially it was thought that perhaps the materials were high-end military explosives that were smuggled, but it turns out not to be the case," Kelly said. "It's more like these terrorists went to a hardware store or some beauty supply store."

The NYPD officials said investigators believe the bombers used a peroxide-based explosive called HMDT, or hexamethylene triperoxide diamine. HMDT can be made using ordinary ingredients like hydrogen peroxide (hair bleach), citric acid (a common food preservative) and heat tablets (sometimes used by the military for cooking).

~~What I'm wondering is why are New York Officials a source of information about what happend in London? Any and all information on what explosives were used, trigger mechanisms and such should be comming out of London imho.
And quotes like:
It's more like these terrorists went to a hardware store or some beauty supply store."

Are speculation, we don't care what's most likely, we care about whats actually used. London is still saying military explosives. Who are these NY officials to say otherwise? Where do they get their information? How come London or UK Officials aren't the ones to give out this information?use their mobile phones after the bombings to report their witness accounts and even to send pictures to them. In addition, so many people were calling loved ones and friends that the lines were jammed up. I just find it weird that now they are saying mobiles were used to detonate the bombs.

Tue August, 16 2005 find the whole story a bit why after the attacks police authoritys didn't shut down networks for phones.They knew that Madrid bombings were triggered by phones. If triggered by phones why the need to sacrifice themselves? Doesn't make sense. Also what the story of Visor consultancy running security exercise at the same time,media hasn't mentioned much about that. And where is all the cctv footage? smells like a 6 week old haddock.

If the tube bombs were detonated using cell phone timers, what roles did the four suspects caught on CCTV play? If they were suicide bombers, why use timers? If they were only delivery men, were they killed in the explosions? If not, where are they? If so, what kind of story do you tell four unwitting blokes to get them to assemble in one location loaded with rucksacks and take off on different tube lines? How does the behavior of the final bus bomber fit into the equation...was his last minute fiddling with the device an effort to trigger it? If so, why use timers if the bombs are triggered by the bombers? If not, did he expose his ignorance of the whole plan by panicking and searching his bag when he put two and two together and figured out that the explosions he had heard about were detonated on the tube lines his buddies just took?

Many questions..
