This is Mark " I know fucking everything about, spies, spooks, weapons, plots, bombers, plastique etc etc " Urban. Ex Army with the quizzical raised left eyebrow and the mufti shirt and tie.
This man is dangerous, he spreads disinformation / misinformation and unadulerated bullshit (Newsnight Friday 22nd 10.50) e.g Of the "Bomber on the Empty Bus" CCTV pic (courtesy HMG and the Met) he points to the device in the (heavily Photoshopped) left hand as a trigger. This would be a simple device he explains to the simple minded. It would also to the simple minded have to be attached to a fucking long piece of wire to detonate the bomb as Bill the "Blackie" Bomber left the bus and it detonated 13 minutes later. To the even simpler minded it looks like a mobile phone which people may occasionally be seen clutching.
He then points to the picture taken later of the Fitness First bag on the bus and a Gold and Black Duracell battery on the seat (He doesn't mention that this photo is courtesy of a resident and keen photgrpaher (not HMG and the Met) who lived right by the bus and took the picture, and what could be Jiffy bags (and slipping into industrial chemist mode he sagely remarks) "to insulate the unstable acetone peroxide".
Does this guy do sophisticated chemical analysis by mind reading ? 2 weeks and the forensic chappies still don't or won't tell us what the 7/7 bombs were made of.
Remember the BBC is part of the State apparatus - the World Service is funded by the Foreign (and is indeed part of it) Office.
