Now that didn't take long --the mainstream, Mirror newspaper in the U.K. has just dropped the 'suicide bombers' theory on the London blasts.
It wasn't holding water anyway. [See: Glaring Flaw in London Suicide Bombs Tale]
The new mainstream line is that the bombers were duped by their Al-Qaida "mastermind" handler. They didn't realise that they would never survive the bombing run.
This new angle is much, much closer to the truth. Dangerously close.
And this development shows the mainstream media now in danger of losing their spin hold on the story.
So, in response, here's my new theory: What if the Al-Qaida guy was only pretending to be an Al-Qaida operative? Here's another: What if he was a double-agent?
Who was really running this bombing operation?
That question is close now..... real close.
EXCLUSIVE: WAS IT SUICIDE?
Why did they buy return train tickets to Luton?
Why did they buy pay & display tickets for cars?
Why were there no usual shouts of 'Allah Akhbar'?
Why were bombs in bags and not on their bodies?

THE London bombers may have been duped into killing themselves so their secrets stayed hidden.
Police and MI5 are probing if the four men were told by their al-Qaeda controller they had time to escape after setting off timers. Instead, the devices exploded immediately.
A security source said: "If the bombers lived and were caught they'd probably have cracked. Would their masters have allowed that to happen? We think not."
The evidence is compelling: The terrorists bought return rail tickets, and pay and display car park tickets, before boarding a train at Luton for London....
Their devices were in large rucksacks which could be easily dumped instead of being strapped to their bodies. They carried wallets containing their driving licences, bank cards and other personal items. Suicide bombers normally strip themselves of identifying material.
Similar terror attacks against public transport in Madrid last year were carried out by recruits who had time to escape and planned to strike again.
Our source disclosed: "The theory that they were not a suicide squad is gathering pace. They were the weakest link. We think it's possible they were told that when they pressed buttons to set off timers they'd have a short time to abandon the bombs and get away before the blast. Instead, the bombs exploded immediately."
Another intelligence source added: "Whoever is behind this didn't want to waste their best operatives on a suicide mission. Instead they used easily recruited low-grade men who may have believed they'd walk away....
