Since last Monday's twin bombings at the finish line of the Boston marathon, suspicion has been cast on a range of suspects but aside from the officially-nominated culprits attention has mostly been drawn to elements within the US government, but the theories springing up are far from coherent and convincing.

The bombings at the Boston marathon on Monday were yet another atrocity in a nation that has seen considerable bloodshed in recent months. 2012 was a record year for mass shootings in the US, and just like many of those events the Boston bombings have immediately been subject to scepticism, suspicion and in many cases outright speculation as to who was responsible.

Like so many major terrorist attacks, the World Trade Center (WTC) bombing of February 1993 occured shortly after the US presidential election. The incoming Bill Clinton was confronted with a new menace: Islamic terror had for the first time carried out a major strike on US soil. The first new president after the end of the Cold War and the previous president's announcement of a 'new world order' was within weeks given a stark reminder that with the Soviet Union out of the way the US still faced a clear and present danger. 20 years on, this article reflects on the outstanding questions and theorier.

The BBC recently aired their latest attempt to debunk the scepticism, questions, suspicions and alternative theories about the 7/7 bombings in London in 2005. It was a litany of misdirection, irrelevance and outright lies in the long-standing tradition of such shows. This article details my own experiences with the production company, and my response when I watched the show. Read article here.
We are on the eve of the 7th anniversary of the 7/7 terrorist attacks in which 56 people, including the alleged culprits, were killed. In that time, numerous theories have been put forward as to what really happened and who was truly responsible.
As we approach the spectacle of the 2012 olympics in London, the spectre of a major terrorist attack at the olympics is on the minds of many in the alternative research and media movement. However, uncertainty reigns as to whether the threat is real, or part of a carefully orchestrated disinformation campaign.
The 7/7 paper trail has led me in many different directions. There are many pieces of paper that show that contradict the official story, but only some that categorically prove it is untrue. The following 7 documents show that key claims of the official story presented in these three reports simply cannot be true. Read article here.
In light of the Breivik, Merah and Amrani massacres we are presented with the possibility that there is an international conspiracy both within certain state agencies but also existing beyond them, in the manner of the stay-behind units of Gladio, that are to some extent responsible. Read article here.
There are numerous parallels between the mastermind of the 2008 Mumbai massacre David Headley and the currently-on-trial face of the 2011 Norway attacks Anders Breivik. An examination of these parallels suggests there is more than meets the eye with Breivik. Read article here.
In Part IV of this series we look at the alleged suicide crash of EgyptAir Flight 990, the attacks of 9/11, and the 2002 Tampa plane crash. Of course, it is entirely possible that only one of these events actually involved a suicide hijacking. Read article here.
In Part III of this series we look at the first two Islamist suicide hijacking plots, 20 years after it was innovated in America, one by the Algerian GIA in hijacking a plane they intended to crash into the Eiffel Tower, the other the Bojinka plot in the Philippines. Read article here.
In Part II of this series we look at the case of Frank Corder, who flew a stolen plane into the White House on the night of September 11th 1994. The crash was predicted by films and novels, and FBI files yield further questions about the predictability of the attack and the possibility of a wider conspiracy.
To this day pigeons are used for spying and covert warfare. This practice has on occasion caused major international controversy. I recently found myself swept up by the maelstrom that often results from the use of our feathered friends by the intelligence and security services.
The suicide hijacking is a terrorist tactic with a much longer and more elaborate history than many people realise. Even those in the 9/11 truth movement are largely unaware that its history goes back nearly 30 years prior to the attacks on the WTC and Pentagon. The first article in this series looks into the case of Samuel Byck, who attempted a suicide hijacking in 1974 with the aim of assassinating Richard Nixon.
A few days ago the former head of Turkey's army Ilker Basbug was arrested as part of the ongoing Operation Sledgehammer/Ergenekon investigation. He is so far the highest ranking official to be jailed in connection with the alleged coup plot involving Turkey's Deep State.
The alternative media is awash with claims that we live in a time of unprecedented military aggression and that we are spiralling into World War 3. What the current period reminds me of is the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962, exactly 50 years ago, when a covert, Cold war of provocation and manipulation almost spilled over into nuclear war.
In 1980-81 the BBC and the British government were at loggerheads over a proposed Panorama documentary on the Intelligence services. In 2004 the BBC broadcast a reality TV show where members of the public were trained to be spies. Following on from my Overt Ops series, this article looks at the radical change in publicity policy for Intelligence and Security Services over the last thirty years.
7/7: What Did They Know? is a brand-new documentary by Keelan Balderson of Wideshut.co.uk that explores in detail the questions of predictability and preventability with regard to the 7/7 bombings in London.
Iran has been on and off the war agenda for the last five
years. The strained relationship between the US and Iran has its history
and its present in a series of covert operations. It is in these
operations that we find the likely motives behind the overt diplomatic struggle
being played out in the UN and the mainstream media.
