US Government, Corporate Media Hatch "Irritating"
And Unfounded Terror Plot
British intelligence admits there is no evidence
for fearmongering headlines
Despite frothing headlines about European airports
and train stations about to be attacked by machine gun wielding
muslim terrorists, British intelligence officials have admitted
that there is no evidence whatsoever to suggest that a significant
terror plot is imminent.
According to a report in the London
Guardian, British officials have described the
suggestions that "commando-style" attacks are about
to be unleashed as "irritating".
"There was no evidence that a plot was imminent,
and intelligence was described by a well-placed Whitehall official
as 'ill-defined'." The Guardian report reads.
At the weekend, the US government issued a travel
warning, noting that "European governments have taken action
to guard against a terrorist attack and some have spoken publicly
about the heightened threat conditions."
However, these comments were prompted primarily
by US media speculation only, according to European anti-terror
The officials also noted that they share the same
anti-terror information with the US, and that they have seen
no particular intelligence to suggest an attack in the style
of the 2008 Mumbai siege is more likely now than it has been
for the past two years.
Reports in the mainstream media have suggested
that an intensifying of US drone missile attacks in Pakistan
is somehow linked to the nonexistent intelligence, and that
Osama Bin Laden is behind it all.
The furor surrounding this latest dubious terror
plot has generated headlines such as "Britain
gripped by Al Qaeda terror plot fear" with
graphics depicting possible targets and warnings that "a
Mumbai-type plot would ‘outmatch' the police and
turn London into a war zone" with people being brutally
"murdered one by one" - all based on nothing but media
This current fearmongering bears the hallmarks
of almost every other major terror plot we have studied where
the authorities have not only had prior knowledge of the plot
but have in fact facilitated it from beginning to end.
Just a brief reprisal of the last handful of major
terror cases in the United States instantly reminds us that
in every single instance the plot was artificially engineered
by the federal government and then later seized upon, with the
enthusiastic support of the corporate media, as justification
for more funding, more power, and more authority to denounce
critics of the war on terror and dissent against the state in
On January 27, the
Detroit News reported how the State Department
refused to revoke Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab's visa despite
the fact that he was on a terror watch list and allowed him
to board the plane, allegedly in order to avoid tipping off
a wider investigation.
After weeks of stonewalling, authorities quietly
reversed the official story behind the aborted attack and acknowledged
that an accomplice was involved, despite weeks of denial and
derision of eyewitness Kurt Haskell's description of a sharp-dressed
man who helped Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab board Flight 253 in
Detroit lawyer Kurt Haskell maintained from the beginning that
he saw a well-dressed Indian man aid the accused bomber to board
the plane despite the fact that he had no passport and was on
a terror watch list.
"While Mutallab was poorly dressed, his friend was dressed
in an expensive suit, Haskell said. He says the suited man asked
ticket agents whether Mutallab could board without a passport.
"The guy said, 'He's from Sudan and we do this all the time,'"
the Michigan Live news website.
FBI agents interviewed Haskell and he told them about the sharp-dressed
man but officials refused to admit that a wider conspiracy was
at hand, stoically maintaining the official story that Abdulmutallab
had acted alone. Authorities claimed that videotapes did not
show a second man accompanying Abdulmutallab and yet they refused
to release any footage of the alleged bomber.
There seems little doubt that Abdulmutallab had at least one
accomplice if not more. Authorities have remained silent on
other eyewitness reports which described a man intently filming
the alleged terrorist throughout the whole flight, a connection
that strongly suggests the attempted bomber was involved in
some kind of drill and that his strings were being pulled by
people in more senior positions.
The Delta 253 incident was just one of the dozens of terror
busts and stings since 9/11 to have been orchestrated by handlers
aiding the accused terrorists at every turn. We have never come
across a major case where the terrorists involved in a plot
were not being prodded by the FBI and federal informants, or
where clear prior knowledge and forewarning was not evident.
Take the case of Fort Hood shooter Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan,
who repeatedly communicated with alleged Al-Qaeda leaders for
nearly a year before his rampage. The FBI knew Hasan was sending
emails to terrorists, but they did nothing, allowed him to remain
on a U.S. Army base, and even invited him to participate in
Homeland Security exercises.
Hasan, "Sent 10 to 20 e-mails to several terror-related
Islamic figures, including Anwar Aulaqi, a radical imam from
Virginia who has been openly propagandizing for al Qaeda in
Yemen and who had ties to several of the 9/11 hijackers,”
the New York Post.
Webster Tarpley reported, Aulaqi is "an intelligence
agency operative and patsy-minder” and "one of the
premier terror impresarios of the age operating under Islamic
fundamentalist cover” whose job it is to "motivate
and encourage groups of mentally impaired and suggestible young
dupes who were entrapped into "terrorist plots”
by busy FBI and Canadian RCMP agents during recent years.”
Tarpley points to Aulaqi's
role in the Toronto and Fort
Dix, New Jersey, terror plots, which were both
contrived by the feds, as proof of Aulaqi's usefulness
to the authorities in radicalizing terrorist patsies.
Lawyers in a case relating to the much vaunted 2007 terror
plot to attack Fort Dix and kill "as many soldiers as possible"
concluded that FBI
informants were the key figures behind the operation
and that the accused, six foreign-born Muslims, were merely
the "Toronto" terrorists turned out
to be "a bunch of incompetent guys who were primarily
misled by a delusional megalomaniac”. The explosive fertilizer
material the terrorist cell apparently planned to use was in
fact purchased by an informant working for the RCMP who had
radicalized the group.
Hasan's direct relationship with FBI operative and ace
patsy-minder Aulaqi provides strong evidence that the Fort Hood
shooter was being watched very carefully long before he went
on his tragic rampage.
Hundreds of terror suspects (read: patsies and mental deficients)
have been convicted in civilian federal courts, including convicted
shoe bomber Richard Reid who attended the Finsbury Park Mosque
in North London. The Finsbury imam at the time was Abu Hamza
began working with British Security Services in 1997.
A large number of the supposed terrorists convicted in American
courts were entrapped by the FBI in classic COINTELPRO fashion
and did not have links to the CIA-created al-Qaeda. The entrapped
were often fuzzy on al-Qaeda or what it represents.
In the media-lauded Miami terror case in 2007, the supposed
ringleader Narseal "Prince Marina" Batiste "had heard of Al-Qaeda,
but wasn't sure what it stood for. The FBI instigators made
Batiste swear loyalty to al-Qaida; then had him call on his
local buddies to form an 'Islamic army' in Miami. None had military
training. Some could barely read. But Batiste assured the group
in the midst of its collective marijuana buzz of greatness ahead,"
These were the men who comedian John Stewart referred to as
dipshits in a warehouse” after Attorney General
Alberto Gonzales had ludicrously told the press that the group
of semi-retarded gang-bangers had planned to "wage a ground
war against America”.
of the more recent examples was the case of the
so-called Muslim terrorists busted in New York, who supposedly
wanted to blow up synagogues in the Bronx and shoot down military
airplanes flying out of the New York Air National Guard base.
The men were provided with fake explosives and inactive missiles
by an FBI informant, reported
the Christian Science Monitor. Two of the ringleaders
of the "deadly” plot which was endlessly hyped by
the media turned
out to be semi-retarded potheads, exactly as we
had predicted would be the case due to the innumerable past
cases with the exact same modus operandi.
The federal authorities seem none too concerned about stopping
any real terrorists and are instead obsessed with manufacturing
patsies, bankrolling, radicalizing and prodding rag-tag groups
to attempt attacks so that the massive slush fund that is the
"war on terror” can be prolonged, while the corporate
media relishes each opportunity to politicize such events to
demonize peaceful resistance to big government as "violent
With this insidious partnership now colluding to produce a
constant supply of Abdul Mutallabs on an almost monthly
basis, we can expect to see many more domestic terror attacks,
be they genuine, provocateured, or outright staged, and with
each one the calls to crush free speech and censor the right
to express dissent on the Internet will build to a crescendo,
with little or no investigation on behalf of the mainstream
media as to how such attacks came about in the first place,
and who was really behind them.
