Fertilizer Terrorists Fingered Intelligence Agencies
ISI implicated, 7/7 links exposed, terror network control by Intel beyond doubtSteve Watson

The media frenzy surrounding the conviction of five terror suspects in the UK this week has failed to underline the fact that once again the so called terrorists have direct links to intelligence agencies.
At the end of a year-long terror trial on Monday five men were given life sentences for a foiled plot to build a huge fertilizer bomb for a UK attack.
Although there has been a relentless focus on the fact that these men were connected to the 7/7 bombers, the fact that they are directly connected to Pakistani intelligence as well as British intelligence has been skirted over.
Omar Khyam, the leader of the so called fertilizer bomb gang, was trailed by MI5 for some time before being arrested in early April 2004. When his trial began in September last year Khyam testified for two days but has refused to testify further, saying his family in Pakistan had been threatened by the Pakistani intelligence service, ISI.
It seemed that Khyam was beginning to spill too many beans about who really is behind the global terror network:
The Indian newspaper The Hindu
Last week, Mr. Khyam told the court that ISI was training militants and during his visit to Pakistan six years ago he trained in an ISI-supervised camp.
"The ISI was setting up camps in what we called Free Kashmir, funding it with money and weapons and people that would train people, and logistical supplies, everything," he said.
Mr. Khyam said the people who trained him in handling arms were "selected by the ISI".
"The ISI works with Islamic groups," he added.
Khyam stated in court;
"I think they are worried I might reveal more about them, so right now, as much as I want to clarify matters, the priority for me has to be the safety of my family so I am going to stop... I am not going to discuss anything related to the ISI any more or the evidence."
A second man convicted in the trial, Anthony Garcia, a Moroccan formerly known as Rahman Benouis, also stated that he had sought training in Pakistan, insinuating that it was commonplace
for the Pakistani military to train up Islamic militants to fight in occupied Kashmir.
The reality is that Pakistan, a US and British ally, and the ISI, well known to be firmly in bed with the CIA and MI6, is training and funding radicalized Muslims who have later been grabbed and pinned as Al Qaeda affiliated terrorists who want to attack the British and American people.
The media has also picked up on the fact that the fertilizer five have direct connections to the 7/7 London bombers and were known to have met with two of them several times.
As reported by the London Guardian
today, in an intelligence operation known as 'Crevice', officers had been keeping watch on the group of men who had repeatedly been seen in the company of 7/7 bombers Mohammad Sidique Khan and Shehzad Tanweer.
Although it was previously known that MI5 had the two 7/7 bombers under surveillance
up to 18 months beforehand, the media has treated this information as new, once again throwing limelight on demands for a public inquiry.
"So much was known about Sidique Khan that MI5's repeated claim that it did not know his identity until after the 7/7 bombings is certain to come under scrutiny." The Guardian states.
Sidique Khan was even bugged and recorded by MI5 but later determined not to be a threat.
According to the Guardian, which is now able to report the information after the lifting of a court order:
At one point, Sidique Khan was recorded asking Khyam: "Are you really a terrorist?
Khyam: "They are working with us."
Sidique Khan: "You are serious, you are basically?"
Khyam: "I am not a terrorist, they are working through us."
Khan: "Who are? There is no one higher than you."
Is Khyam once again referring to a State and an intelligence agency here? Who else can he be talking about when he states "they are working through us"?
Of course, Mohammad Sidique Khan and Shehzad Tanweer were also trained in Pakistan where they were filmed supposedly "confessing" to the London Bombings they would commit at a later date.
When the fertilizer plot is placed in this context and one then explores wider the connections the London bombers had with known intelligence assets such as Haroon Rashid Aswat,
who was intimately involved with figures such as Abu Qatada, Abu Hamza and Ahmed Omar Sheikh Saeed, all documented double agents for MI5,
a clearer picture begins to emerge as to just who is the hidden hand at the top behind this tiered network of terror.
Then when one begins to explore the inconsistencies in the government's official story of the 7/7 bombings
it becomes clear that the British security services are hiding the truth because they are intimately involved as perpetrators in the very acts that the British government wants us to believe it is attempting to protecting us from.
For an excellent overview of how deep the rabbit hole goes on intelligence connections to 7/7, "al Qaeda" and global terrorism, I recommend The London Bombings: An Independent Inquiry by Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed.
