SAS Link to Brazilian shot on train

Quite a few details have been announced since i last posted on the killing of a Brazilian Jean Charles de Menezes on the London Underground .

It now seems clear

(1) the suspect was not wearing a thick coat (it was a denim jacket)
(2) the suspect did not jump the barrier (the man seen jumping the barrier was a police officer)
(3) the 'police' did not issue any kind of warning before shooting the man
(4) as a "suspected suicide bomber" it may suprise you that the suspect travelled on a bus to get to the train station and was not prevented from doing so
(5) the suspect was shot 8 times and not 5 as first reports claim

Now a new detail has come to light ...

It seems the British SAS are also linked into this tragic event

The London Times is reporting that 'Press photographs of members of the armed response team taken in the immediate aftermath of the killing show at least one man carrying a special forces weapon that is not issued to SO19, the Metropolitan police firearms unit.

The man, wearing civilian clothes with a blue cap marked “Police”, was carrying a specially modified Heckler & Koch G3K rifle with a shortened barrel and a butt from a PSG-1 sniper rifle fitted to it — a combination used by the SAS'

The Ministry of Defence insisted last week that the military involvement was limited in the operation that led to de Menezes’s death. “We would describe it as technical assistance as part of a police-led operation under police control,” a spokeswoman said. “It is a particular military capability that the police can draw on if needed. It was a low-level involvement in support of a police-controlled operation.”

now we must question if this is true ..

was Jean Charles de Menezes, 27 killed by a crack SAS team and not the police as we have been told ?
