Open Thread

I get lots of email from people who want me to post articles that are not directly related to 9/11. A lot of these emails are quite valid, and important, but I do not feel they should be a part of this site's articles. I do however think having open threads for these issues is very valid.

Feel free to post information and links related to what you think is important now, no matter how it might, or might not, be tied to 9/11.

I received this article

I received this article about the 7/7 london bombing.. it is quite interesting to hear first hand testimony to the events of that morning. The man interviewed in this article was only 1 of 2 that survived riding in the car in which the bomb went off.

here is a summary:
He recalled that the carriage had about 20-25 people in it, from all walks of life, and aged from their teens to over 60.

"I remember an Asian guy, there was a white guy with tracksuit trousers and a baseball cap, and there were two old ladies sitting opposite me," he said.

He and Crystal were helped out of the carriage. As they made their way out, a policeman pointed out where the bomb had been.

"The policeman said 'mind that hole, that's where the bomb was'. The metal was pushed upwards as if the bomb was underneath the train. They seem to think the bomb was left in a bag, but I don't remember anybody being where the bomb was, or any bag," he said.

here is a followup article
