Nicholas Kollerstrom, Ph.D., author of Terror on the Tube: Behind the Veil of 7/7 was my guest yesterday on "The Real Deal", an internet radio program whose archives are available at radiofetzer.blogspot.com. Nick is an English writer and historian of science. He is a former honorary research fellow in Science and Technology Studies at University College, London (UCL) and a former lunar gardening correspondent for the BBC. He is the author or the co-author of a number of books, including Gardening and Planting by the Moon (an annual series beginning 1980), Newton's Forgotten Lunar Theory (2000) and, most significantly in this context, Terror on the Tube (2009).
His fascinating new book about the London bombings takes us behind the shifting and illusory scenes that were given by the news media. My four-part interview with him, below, carries on from that with Muad’Dib of "The Ripple Effect" DVD earlier this year. While Muad’Dib was very confident that the alleged 7/7 bombers came down to London on that fateful morning, Nicholas Kellerstrom places his emphasis on the absence of credible evidence from witnesses or CCTV to confirm it. Terror on the Tube places this tragic event firmly in the context of earlier "false-flag" terror events of the new millennium: 9/11, the Bali bombing of 2002, and the Madrid bombing of 2004, while comparing them. In this one book, you can be fairly confident that you have all the crucially relevant evidence necessary for evaluating who did it -- properly situated within its geopolitical context.
You do not have to be a philosopher of science to appreciate that no one should be attacked for conducting research on controversial subjects, especially those as explosive as the Holocaust. Laws against Holocaust denial are as sensible as prohibitions against affirmations that the Earth is flat! The objectivity of science derives from the convergence of opinion that should occur when different scientists consider the same evidence and the same hypotheses using the same rules of reasoning. But those inquiries must be based upon all of the available evidence, not simply parts that tend to support positions we prefer. This is known as the requirement of total evidence.
When it comes to the Holocaust, as in the case of 7/7, 9/11, and JFK, the public is entitled to the truth. We are all too often manipulated by our government using the simple expedient of classifying or by suppressing the dissemination of information and coaxed into accepting beliefs that are not well-founded in order to promote political agendas. Let that not be the case here. Like research on 7/7, 9/11, and JFK, ongoing inquiries are bound to correct the historical record in one respect or another. If we have it right, inquiry will support that; and if we have it wrong, it will correct it. Only open and unfettered research, especially scientific, can be counted on to yield the truth. And without the truth, we are not free.
