London Terrorism Exercise Turned Real, Coincidence or Conspiracy?

Some critics have seen this as evidence of possible government involvement in the London transport bombings

On the evening of the London bombings of July 7, Peter Powers, a former Scotland Yard official who once worked with the Anti Terrorist Branch, was interviewed on BBC Radio 5 and ITV news. Powers stated that his company, Visor Consultants, a crisis management consultancy, was running an exercise that morning for an undisclosed 1000-employee company to practice the response to a scenario involving explosions in the London Underground, which Powers claimed was "based on simultaneous bombs going off precisely at the railway stations that happened this morning".

Some critics have seen this as evidence of possible government involvement in the London transport bombings, though others with experience in crisis management see it as little more than a paper exercise that was eerily prescient.
