London Underground Bombing 'Exercises' Took Place at Same Time as Real Attack

Culpability cover scenario echoes 9/11 wargames

Alex Jones & Paul Joseph Watson | July 9, 2005

A consultancy agency with government and police connections was running an exercise for an unnamed company that revolved around the London Underground being bombed at the exact same times and locations as happened in real life on the morning of July 7th.

On a BBC Radio 5 interview that aired on the evening of the 7th, the host interviewed Peter Power, Managing Director of Visor Consultants, which bills itself as a 'crisis management' advice company, better known to you and I as a PR firm.

Peter Power was a former Scotland Yard official, working at one time with the Anti Terrorist Branch.

Power told the host that at the exact same time that the London bombings were taking place, his company was running a 1,000 person strong exercise which drilled the London Underground being bombed at the exact same locations, at the exact same times, as happened in real life.

The transcript is as follows.

POWER: At half past nine this morning we were actually running an exercise for a company of over a thousand people in London based on simultaneous bombs going off precisely at the railway stations where it happened this morning, so I still have the hairs on the back of my neck standing up right now.

HOST: To get this quite straight, you were running an exercise to see how you would cope with this and it happened while you were running the exercise?

POWER: Precisely, and it was about half past nine this morning, we planned this for a company and for obvious reasons I don't want to reveal their name but they're listening and they'll know it. And we had a room full of crisis managers for the first time they'd met and so within five minutes we made a pretty rapid decision that this is the real one and so we went through the correct drills of activating crisis management procedures to jump from slow time to quick time thinking and so on.

The fact that the exercise mirrored the exact locations and times of the bombings is light years beyond a coincidence. Power said the drill focused around 'simultaneous bombings'. At first the bombings were thought to have been spread over an hour, but the BBC reports just today that the bombings were in fact simultaneous.

Canada Called A Likely Target

'CATASTROPHIC' TERROR ATTACK POSSIBLE, HE SAYS


By BRIAN GRAY,
TORONTO SUN

CANADA IS a likely target for terrorists but the attack won't necessarily mirror the explosions in London last week, a British expert on crisis management said yesterday.

"It doesn't have to be a bomb but it does have to give the terrorist the oxygen of publicity," said Peter Power, a London-based consultant who has worked with Scotland Yard's anti-terrorist branch.

Power was in London during Thursday's terror attack.

He's in Toronto this week for the 15th annual World Conference on Disaster Management, which runs until Wednesday at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre and features experts from 52 countries and about 1,200 delegates.

"It could be a very different type of attack, but something equally catastrophic," Power said, suggesting Canada look at areas where there would be major economic impact -- including cyber attacks.

It would be a mistake for Canadians to think we aren't a potential target, Power said.

A chronology of the blasts, and the confusion

By Alan Cowell
The New York Times
WEDNESDAY, JULY 13, 2005


LONDON It was 8:51 a.m., the height of the morning rush hour Thursday, when the first emergency call came in. At 8:59 a.m., a train at Edgware Station was reported to have hit a tunnel wall. At 9:01 a.m., a manager on the Metropolitan Line said that a person might be under a train at Liverpool Street. At 9:03 a.m., controllers on the Piccadilly Line received accounts of passengers running out of King's Cross station.

(...)

Only at 9:15 a.m., 25 minutes after the first explosion, he said, did officials decide to declare ''Code Amber'' — a state of alert that required drivers to halt at platforms and evacuate the trains. It was not until 9:46 a.m. that ''Code Red'' was declared, shutting down the entire network, according to British press reports. At that hour, more than 200,000 people were traveling on more than 500 trains.

(...)

A fourth bomb exploded aboard a bus 57 minutes later. Confusion over the timing extended for almost two days. While the Underground's managing director, Tim O'Toole, initially insisted at a news conference that the explosions had been virtually simultaneous, the police put the time of the Edgware Road bombing on Thursday at 9:17 — 27 minutes after the bombings at two other subway stations. But the police revised that chronology on Saturday, saying that, while emergency services arrived quickly at Edgware Road Station, the first call informing them that an explosion had taken place came at 9:17.

Same-time-as-attack underground bombing exercise in London a chilling coincidence?

By Judi McLeod & David Hawkins
Saturday, July 9, 2005 9:00 p.m.

Toronto-- Chillingly coincidental, the same 9/11 "war games" conducted during the actual tragedy on the morning of September 11, 2001, echo London underground "bombing exercises" which took place at the same time as the real attack, according to Alex Jones’ Prison Planet.com.

What are the odds of both human tragedies having coincidental "drills" going on at the exact same time real life was taking so many human lives in two terrorist attacks?

NORAD was conducting drills of flying hijacked planes into the World Trade Center and Pentagon at 8:30 in the morning, September 11, 2001. A CIA planned exercise on September 11 was built around a plane crashing into a building.

"It is clear that at least five if not six training exercises were in operation in the days leading up to and on the morning of 9/11/2001," Paul Joseph Watson and Alex Jones wrote for Prison Planet.com today.

Basing their information on a BBC Radio 5 interview, Watson and Jones say a consulting agency with government and police connections was running an exercise for an unnamed company that revolved around the London Underground being bombed at the exact times and locations as happened in real life on the morning of July 7th.

Public safety experts meet in Toronto this week

CTV.ca News Staff

Security experts from 52 countries will attend the World Terrorist and Disaster Management Conference in Toronto Monday, just as terrorism moves to the top of the agenda once again after last week's London bombings.

(...)

The conference was scheduled months before the London attacks, and experts had planned to focus on the response to natural disasters such as last December's tsunami is Southeast Asia.

(...)

"Here in Canada you have a wealth of experience in responding to natural disasters," Peter Power, a retired Scotland Yard official, told CTV News.

Still, like many of the experts who will attend the conference, Power is also concerned about how to defend against terrorism.

"Complacency: that's probably the worst enemy of all," Power said.

Peter Power: 7/7 terror rehearsal man suspended from Dorset Police

J7 Blog: "On July 7th 2005, Peter Power was running a terror exercise which, in his own words that evening, was "based on simultaneous bombs going off precisely at the railway stations where it happened this morning, so I still have the hairs on the back of my neck standing upright!". He has since refused to give a more detailed account of his activities that day, for some reason believing that the commercial interests of his client, which require confidentiality, are more important than the public interest in incidents which resulted in many deaths and injuries. Disappointingly, the media appears to share that belief as it has not insisted on him making a credible full disclosure. Instead, it continues to present him with regular opportunities to propagate his views on such matters as the necessity of a 90 day detention period.

J7 has discovered, though, that Peter Power was once the subject of a file passed to the Director of Public Prosecution as a result of an investigation by Dorset Police. This is all the more remarkable because, at the time, Peter Power was a Superintendent in the Dorset Police Force! Read the full story here. He retired from Dorset Police, which had suspended him on full pay, on the grounds of ill health before any decision was taken by the DPP on whether to act upon the file...."
