A NOTABLE SILENCE FROM TORA BORA:

Tube bomber declares war from the grave: EDWARD BLACK, 9/01/05, The Scotsman)

THE suspected ringleader of the 7 July London suicide bombers was last night apparently shown calmly explaining his reasons behind the attacks in a chilling video that included praise for the bombings from al-Qaeda's second-in-command Ayman al-Zawahri.

Mohammad Sidique Khan, who detonated explosives on a Circle Line train, claimed that the bombings in London and in Madrid in 2004 had been the fault of Western citizens, and that he was a soldier at war.

Delivering his message in a slow, calm tone and with a distinct Yorkshire accent, Khan warned: "Now you too will taste the reality of this situation."
