Yes, The Terrorists Are Connected

Of course yesterday's terror in London was connected to 7/7.
Not to think there was a connection demonstrates how certain leaders and commentators have little to no understanding of Jihadist objectives and of the al Qaeda organization.
The bombers of 7/21 may have not known the 7/7 bombers but, whether they knew them or not, the groups were loosely connected. Both groups had the same handler, of that I am convinced. The fact that the backpacks and explosives used by both groups were the same type absolutely confirms the connection. In fact, the 7/21 bombers probably felt inspired by their 7/7 comrades for the cause.
So why did yesterday's bombing effort not succeed?
Thankfully, most terrorists are somewhat inept.
