Top intelligence analyst for Yorkshire police says 7/7 was false flag

Top police intelligence whistleblower is sacked for reporting to his seniors that 7/7 has the hallmarks of state terrorism.

"Tony Farrell had been employed for twelve years as ‘Principle Intelligence Analyst’ for South Yorkshire Police, 13th largest of the 44 police forces in the UK. His job involved producing a yearly ‘Strategic Threat Assessment Matrix’ to determine how the police force had to prioritise its activities.

Assessed ‘threats’ ranged from ASBOs (anti-social behaviour orders) to the terrorist threat presented by local mosques. Having a statistics degree, it was his job to translate the different ‘strategic threats’ into a ‘matrix’ of relative numerical weighted probabilities.

In 2010, one week before the 5th anniversary of 7/7, Tony (who had never previously doubted government versions of events) stumbled across ‘9/11 Truth’ material on the web. Like so many millions before him, he was shocked to the core by this experience. He quickly realised that there was a great mass of evidence relating to 9/11 kept hidden by the mainstream media. As a Christian, Tony consulted his church minister, who suggested that he consider, whether the same might be true for the London 7/7 bombings?

Something he had not suspected ‘in his wildest dreams’ then started to unfold. After reading much of the available but publicly-unreported witness statements and other evidence relating to 7/7, Tony found that he could only conclude that the official 7/7 narrative was ‘a monstrous lie.’ Instead of the official ‘suicide bombers’ narrative, which he and all of his colleagues had believed without question, he realized that the weight of evidence strongly points far more towards 7/7 being an event stage-managed by British intelligence than anything else."

Watch an interview with Tony Farrell and read the rest of the article:

Just what we need. Another nut-job conspiracy theory making out the British government is out to mass murder its own citizens. biscuit

Cogito -- if you have something intelligent to say, then perhaps you would be so kind as to say it. If the Principal Intelligence Analyst of the thirteenth largest police force in the country assesses the unreleased evidence on 7/7 and his seniors agree with his conclusions that this was a false flag, then perhaps this is worthy of intelligent people's attention.

If we're going to talk about lack of intelligence, you started it ffs. I read the article and it sounds like 'Senior police statistician finds God, has a breakdown and starts imagining Satanic/masonic/New World Order patterns in information that aren't actually there' . His seniors won't be agreeing - guaranteed.

It's a David Icke moment

How does an intelligence analyst from a backwater police force get hold of all of the 7/7 data from the Met? I can't imagine the Met police can access it without very good reason so I find it very hard to believe that an analyst is allowed unrestricted access. So on that alone, I think that this is the usual conspiracy theory crap. Throw God into the mix and it just sounds completely barmy.

Also...if the government wanted to stir up public anger by deliberately sending four patriotic volunteers stuffed with explosives onto crowded tube trains and buses in order to justify invading Iraq and Afghanistan.... didn't they realise they were at least two years behind the pace? The London bombings were in 2005. Iraq war began in 2003 and we've had troops in Afghanistan since 2001.

The only issue i take issue with is South Yorkshire being referred to as a backwater. You have obviously never watched cops with cameras grin.

I loved this from the comments on the webpage referred to in the OP :

"Your delusion of the non existence of the ruler of this world has made you BLIND, & DEAF!! The fact that an analytical person educated by the world system has a belief in The Creator, & the Adversary should get you looking at the evidence. ... "
I did wonder if the "ruler of this world" was one of those six foot lizards David Icke warns us of (sorry, I realise I'm the second person to mention him, but he springs to mind every time I come across bizarre beliefs sincerely held). Whatever, it told me what readership this website appealed to.

And loved the interview intro, from the 'Richplanet Starship', and the background looking as if they are indeed sitting above the planet. Again, designed to appeal to a certain audience. To which I do not belong.

I realise that for some people, the need for there to be a reason why bad things happen is overwhelming. And that "there's nowt as queer as folk/shit happens" does not suffice. But seriously - incompetence is usually closer to the truth than conspiracy, whichever conspiracy theory you're considering at the time.

CogitoErgoSometimes Wed 13-Jul-11 14:34:14

The whole Richplanet Starship thing certainly did add je ne sais quoi to the credibility of the whole thing. Did we see a glimpse of turquoise tracksuit...? hmm

WhereYouLeftIt Wed 13-Jul-11 15:10:32

Oh! Oh! Look at what else Richplanet can educate you on! wink

Obviously the intellectual level of the comments here is somewhat below that of the average DM reader ...

If you genuinely think you know more about UK terrorist threats than the Principal Intelligence Analyst for a large swathe of the country, then it's clear who's deluded smile

I loved David Ike.

Why would shaoe shifting lizards be interested in us. I always wondered that. Seems an awful lot of bother.

EldritchCleavage Wed 13-Jul-11 16:54:37

I agree with TheJoyfulPuddlejumper.

I think Principal Intelligence Analyst is over-selling Farrell. He was employed to do a statistical analysis, not a true intelligence analysis, from what I can make out. Those two exercises are quite different, aren't they?

The article also states that Farrell used 'open source' material, i.e. material that was publicly available, so he found a lot of stuff on the internet and it blew his mind. He is not a trained investigator, and appears to have absolutely no judgment whatsoever (he apparently "alluded to secret societies and a Masonic influence as being very central"). Consequently I don't find his conversion from number cruncher to Truther remotely persuasive.

Seriously, the Blair government risked implementing a complex mass murder conspiracy (which would make the current phone hacking scandal look like a tame spat in a Post Office queue) merely to justify the support given to George Bush over the invasion of Iraq? Even assuming Blair and co were that evil (a big assumption even for me), the most cursory risk/benefit analysis on that shows it makes no sense at all.

Just do a search on all of the OPs postings - One trick Pony, Conspiracy Monkey!

VivaLeBeaver Wed 13-Jul-11 17:08:30

Thank God they sacked him.

"Obviously the intellectual level of the comments here is somewhat below that of the average DM reader ... "

I can tell when an OP has lost the argument (not to say the plot) and it's mostly when they start to question the intelligence of the MN contributors. Listen love, I like a good conspiracy theory as much as the next woman... but this isn't a good one. The poor man sounds like he's got problems and deserves sympathy & possibly treatment rather than being paraded by whacko special interest groups and held up to ridicule

EldritchCleavage Wed 13-Jul-11 17:17:09

Eh? There are endless articles about this, some documentaries and a massive (and broadly successful) debunking effort. It's high profile.

BecauseImWorthIt Wed 13-Jul-11 17:17:27

Ha ha ha ha ha!


I can never understand why people like this come on to Mumsnet. Do they think we're really so dense that we will fall for this kind of crap?

What a posting history as well. A true smorgasbord of stupid nonsense.

DaisySteiner Wed 13-Jul-11 17:17:32

The idea that the previous government, who couldn't organise a piss-up in a brewery made cock-ups in so many areas, would be able to orchestrate such a mind-blowingly complicated conspiracy as 7/7 would have been, is laughable.

CogitoErgoSometimes Wed 13-Jul-11 17:30:58

That's the thing about conspiracy theories, isn't it? They are always convoluted and complicated. Anything that is 'possible', however unlikely, suddenly becomes 'proof'.

I could, for example, put the conspiracy theory around that last time I visited the dentist I was hypnotised by a secret agent working on behalf of an anti-global-warming, new world order organisation who conditioned me to behave in an anti-ecological way the next time I heard 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.... I could say that's why I reversed over the recycling boxes this morning. It's possible... but is it proof?

It may not be proof but there is definitely a movie there, Cogito.
