And We’re Supposed To Believe This?

CNN.com – Bomb suspect: ‘No al Qaeda links’ – Jul 31, 2005

Hussain Osman, who is also known as Hamdi Issac, said the four men who partially detonated backpack bombs before running from their targets on July 21 were not working with the July 7 bombers who killed themselves and 52 travelers on three London Underground trains and a bus, the source said.

Osman also claimed the July 21 group was not working for al Qaeda, the Islamic terrorist organization behind the September 11, 2001, terror attacks on the United States, last year’s Madrid train bombings and numerous atrocities worldwide.

Further, the source said, Osman told authorities the bombs were meant to draw attention to anger over the war in Iraq and not to kill anyone.

Lemme see if I got this straight. These bombers were not connected with the 7/7 bombers but just happened to have the identical type of bomb as them but never meant to kill or hurt anyone. Right?

He also says that the attempted bombing, which were not meant to harm anyone, were to draw attention to the war in Iraq. I’m sure there are those out there that will buy this and think it justified.

It’s not. Not even close.

If you accept this reasoning, you must also accept that the Oklahoma City bombing was justified in order to draw attention to Waco, that a gangbanger is justified in shooting someone for “dissing” him, or that you would be justified in shooting your neighbor because his dog crapped on your lawn.

Sounds like self-serving BS to me. But I’m sure there are many fools that will lap it up because it fits their preconceptions.
