It is too soon to draw conclusions. People who set out with bombs to blow people up on empty tubes trains,and buses must have a peculiar mind set. An examination of comments provided to the jury suggests that thse guys were high - qat ?
Who knows yet - but there was something very odd going down that day, and it is difficult to believe these guys were terrists.
“He was lying on the floor with his arms outstretched. He was just dazed, like he couldn't believe he was there, lying on his back.
“My original thought was he might have been dazed, he was clearly shocked, in a state of confusion. He was somebody who wasn’t fully in control of what had just happened.”
I was just a few feet from him but he was completely expressionless. He made no eye contact
When Osman stepped off the bus, he was nearly run over thrice by driver Anne Moore, the court heard.
"He didn't seem to be aware of what he was doing, he seemed out of it," she said. I braked heavily to avoid hitting him."

Mohammed muttered "This is wrong, this is wrong" and said innocently replied "this is bread".
Ramzi dropped the rucksack to the ground and pointed at it repeatedly, pretending he had no idea what was happening.
Mohammed said: ‘What’s the matter? It was wasn’t me, it was that,’ pointing to the rucksack. He placed the rucksack on the floor of the carriage.
"The way this particular man boarded the bus made him stand out. Most passengers who have a pass don't make eye contact but this man in question was waving his bus pass in a peculiar manner and he made staring eye contact with me."

Another oddity. Remember that picture on the news, the one that looked like a pile of yellow vomit? The one that had the nails in it? Yes? Well, did you notice that the nails were in plastic bags? Ever wondered why? Well, if you use hydrogen peroxide on a chemical plant, part of your hazard and operability study tells you that you have to keep the hydrogen peroxide away from non-passivated iron. The iron causes a catalytic decomposition of the hydrogen peroxide. Now, I know that 'cos I'm a PhD chemist who has made products on chemical plants using hydrogen peroxide. So, how did they know that?
