Conspiracy Theory Theatre, Undie Bomber #2 Sequel, “The Ruse”

6:38 am in Uncategorized by Frank33

The AP Spying Story: What You Aren’t Being Told

It is all conspiracy theatre, and it is bad theatre. Yet another False Flag Operation by the Intelligence Community has been compromised. Supposedly, a Saudi or British “double agent” magically fooled the Al Qaeda high command. AP told the world another Al Qaeda Underwear Bomber had been stopped. AP even delayed the story so the Drone Assassins could kill another Al Qaeda leader.

The Secret Government must protect its forbidden history. AP and other reporters are now targets of the Secret Government. It is another war by the Whole of Government against what remains of a free press.

ACT ONE: This Was A CIA Ruse, Not A Journalist-Initiated Disclosure

Is the “leak” to AP, about Undie #2 another Ruse? There was a leaker. The Leaker was John Brennan who leads the CIA and all the Undie Plots. There was another blabbermouth leaker, Rep. Peter King (R-NY). Rep. King has been pursuing the Benghazi scandal, which is another CIA failure. Brennan replaced disgraced General Petraeus. Corrupt bloody Generals and blabbermouth CIA Spymasters, blame the reporters to conceal their incredible failures.

This double agent, Undie #2, was going to attack an airliner with a bomb concealed in his underwear. Then we are supposed to believe that Double Agent, Underwear Bomber #2, would return to Al Qaeda. And he would stop more underwear attacks, for years.

The embedded reporters, are part of the government propaganda community. They routinely repeat leaks from the Intelligence Community to support the wars. Embedded reporters generally are liars. And leaks from the Intelligence Community are generally lies. Jack Shaefer of Reuters supports the spy games.

Echoing King’s comments on CNN, the New York Times, NBC News, the Telegraph and the Los Angeles Times reported that the double agent (or the double-agent operation) had helped the CIA’s drone find and kill Al-Quso.

What not for the U.S. government to like here?

To begin with, the perpetrators of a successful double-agent operation against al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula would not want to brag about their coup for years.

Undie #2 had been given a Undie Bomb to attack an Airliner. Was he going to blow up his underwear then return to Al Qaeda. And maybe blow up more bombs in his underwear for years.

Walter Pincus of WaPo also wants to suppress the Press for revealing this False Flag Operation.

The AP story tied the foiling of an AQAP plot to White House press secretary Jay Carney’s statement the week before that assured “the American public that [the administration] knew of no al-Qaeda plots against the U.S. around the anniversary of bin Laden’s death.” The AP story implied that Carney’s statement was untrue. But Carney was right. This was a CIA ruse, not a terrorist-initiated plot…

Like it or not, they are part of a crime…

The reality is that this is not a whistleblowing case. There are no heroes here, and the press in this instance was not protecting individuals trying to expose government malfeasance.

This was a CIA Ruse, not a terrorist act. This was a CIA False Flag Operation just as Undie #1 was, although Undie #1 was just a patsy. Did the Ruse include blowing up an airplane with a bomb? Undie #1 did ignite his bomb, even though the Government claims they stopped that attack. How would another Undie attack be explained? Why did Jay Carney presidential spokesliar, even answer such a question about what they knew about future attacks?

And we have another official leak. The Ruse was not to stop an Undie Bomb. That is reassuring, or maybe not so reassuring. Why would we expect the Intelligence Community to thwart a terrorist attack? They did not thwart Undie #1. They did not thwart 9/11.

The objective was to “neutralize” the Saudi “al Ashiri”. He is a Master Undie Bomb Maker. And perhaps with enough practice he will kill someone with his undie bombs someday. Some might ask why Undie #2 did not neutralize al-Ashiri when he got the Undie Bomb #2. But this leaker is not any more believable than any of the other official embedded war pimps.

What went completely without mention in the initial coverage was the fact that thwarting this plot was not the objective of the ongoing undercover operation. Its true objective was to gain enough intelligence to locate and neutralize the master bomb builder, Ibrahim Hassan al-Ashiri, who works with an Al-Qaeda affiliate, Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). Penetrating AQAP is incredibly difficult.

Perhaps, there was not a leak to AP. Or perhaps, this whole farce was more psyops by the Secret Government. These AP reporters, and the dee cee stenographers have obeyed the Intelligence Community until now. The Government promises to punish anyone who reveals the forbidden history.

ACT TWO: The President’s Speech Inspires Hope And Change

The President gave a speech about the Forever Wars. The speech was full of hope and change and we will have peace in our time…Just kidding.

The speech was more of the same. After a trillion dollars, and twelve years of corrupt generals fighting forever wars, we have light at the end of the war tunnels.

“Today the core of al Qaida in Afghanistan and Pakistan is on the path to defeat.”

The President summarizes the false history, without including the forbidden history.

In the 1990s, we lost Americans to terrorism at the World Trade Center, at our military facilities in Saudi Arabia, and at our embassy in Kenya.

These attacks were all brutal. They were all deadly. And we learned that, left unchecked, these threats can grow.

The 1993 attack on the WTC by the supporters of the Blind Sheikh, was known to the FBI. TThe FBI had an “informant”, a double agent who offered to substitute a phony bomb. The FBI allowed the plot to continue with a real bomb.

Author Peter Lance revealed more forbidden history. Lance was among the first of journalists to be targeted by the Secret Government. Federal Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald is attempting to destroy Peter Lance.

Peter Lance revealed there was an Al Qaeda agent, Ali Mohammed, who helped attack the Kenya Embassy. Ali was a Green Beret and had knowledge of US security procedures. He provided that terror expertise to Al Qaeda, and moved Usama Bin Laden back and forth with the full knowledge of the American Government.

Terrorist Ali Mohammed remains free, while Peter Lance is targeted for revealing forbidden history. President Obama is being dishonest by omitting the true facts of these attacks.

The attack against an airliner on Christmas 2009, was a CIA ruse. The CIA Handler escorted Abdulmutallab through airport security without a search or a visa. The CIA Ruse was used as an excuse to assassinate Anwar Awlaki. Undie #1, known to be a terrorist, was not searched before boarding Flight #253. Perhaps Awlaki was guilty but the Intelligence Community endangered an airliner full of people.

When Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Christmas Day bomber, went to Yemen in 2009, Awlaki hosted him, approved his suicide operation, helped him tape a martyrdom video to be shown after the attack, and his last instructions were to blow up an airplane when it was over American soil.

The first Undie Bomber has become forbidden history. The courageous witness Kurt Haskell, was threatened by the FBI to change his story. The Government claims they stopped the plot. But the bomb was ignited and started potentially catastrophic fire. The Senate Report continued the official false history.

A State Department official reported that this was a False Flag Op. The original story in the Detroit News has been mostly memory wiped. One copy may remain available.

Patrick F. Kennedy, an undersecretary for management at the State Department, said Abdulmutallab’s visa wasn’t taken away because intelligence officials asked his agency not to deny a visa to the suspected terrorist over concerns that a denial would’ve foiled a larger investigation into al-Qaida threats against the United States.

ACT THREE: Gladio B, Here, There, And In Central Asia

But the “Core” will never be defeated. There is no “Core” of Al Qaeda. Al Qaeda is a mercenary criminal gang created by the CIA to fight the Soviets. The CIA uses Al Qaeda or its “Core” or its affiliates or its branches, as a Ruse to terrorize the world.

The CIA and Ollie North were using the corrupt bank BCCI to pay for illegal weapons and launder drug money. North had created ther terrorist mercenaries, the Contras. BCCI was also used for funding Al Qaeda. Perhaps the disgraced North helped create Al Qaeda.

The Intelligence Community set up another secret army in Central Asia, with the help of Al Qaeda. There is a special office in the Pentagon that directs the terror of Al Qaeda.

“In the late 1990s, all the way up to 9/11, al-Zawahiri and other mujahideen operatives were meeting regularly with senior U.S. officials in the U.S. embassy in Baku to plan the Pentagon’s Balkan operations with the mujahideen,” said Edmonds. “We had support for these operations from Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, but the U.S. oversaw and directed them. They were being run from a secret section of the Pentagon with its own office”.

Edmonds clarified, “the FBI counterintelligence investigation which was tracking these targets, along with their links to U.S. officials, was known as ‘Gladio B’, and was kickstarted in 1997. It so happens that Major Douglas Dickerson” – the husband of her FBI co-worker Melek whom she accused of espionage – “specifically directed the Pentagon’s ‘Gladio’ operations in Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan at this time.”…

Edmonds said that the Pentagon operations with Islamists were an “extension” of an original ‘Gladio’ programme uncovered in the 1970s in Italy…

“We’d spoken to several current and active Pentagon officials confirming the existence of U.S. operations sponsoring mujahideen networks in Central Asia from the 1990s to 2001,” said one Sunday Times source. “Those mujahideen networks were intertwined with a whole range of criminal enterprises, including drugs and guns. The Pentagon officials corroborated Edmonds’ allegations against specific U.S. officials, and I’d also interviewed an MI6 officer who confirmed that the U.S. was running these operations sponsoring mujahideen in that period.”

In 2008, reporters for the British newspaper, Sunday Times prepared a story about “Gladio B”. The story was flushed into the memory hole by United States secret government censors.

The original Gladio was a series of assassinations, bombings and other terror attacks. This was a program directed by European espionage services and the CIA against innocent victims. The goal was to falsely accuse leftwing groups of the crimes. Then use the terror for political repression. It was and is, “The Strategies of Tension”.

In the period 1969 to 1987, 491 innocent civilians were killed and 1181 injured in acts of terrorism carried out by Gladio. An example of this is the terrorist attack that took place on the 2nd of August 1980, during which 85 people were killed and 200 injured in the waiting room of a train station in Bologna. In the series of “false flag” terrorist operations the perpetrators always manage to somehow evade the police…

We have also had false flag terror operations in Iraq. In September 2005 for example, in Basra, two members of British Special Forces, the SAS, were arrested by Iraqi police. The Iraqis were surprised to find out that the two Britons were dressed as Arabs, were wearing wigs and had a car full of explosives which they apparently planned to remotely detonate in the busy markets of Basra. It is therefore probable that the British, too, have carried out false flag operations. In this case the Iraqi police could not find out [whether] the British wanted to create terror and make it look [like] Arab terrorism. The reason is that the two SAS [members], who had been put [in] jail in Basra, were liberated by the British army, which stormed the Iraqi police station in Basra and simply flattened the walls with tanks and took the SAS home so they did not have to testify.

ACT FOUR: Oceania Always At War With EastAsia, CentralAsia, WestAsia…

The terror drama has become terror farce. Undie Bombs and Bags of Cash and Medals from the Joint Chiefs of Staff for the Tampa Twins, and String Quartets and mistresses for Generals. The comedy writes itself.

The Wars have come home. Operation Gladio B has come home. The Boston Marathon Bombers were embedded in the conspiracies of CIA spy Graham Fuller. Fuller was supporting Al Qaeda affiliates in Central Asia. And Fuller was part of the Iran-Contra Conspiracy.

This CIA spy helped create Al Qaeda gangs in Central Asia. Fuller was related by marriage to the Boston Marathon Bombers. The Tsardaev brothers seemed to be involved in all sorts of covert CIA operations.

Another CIA terror group, is the “Wolf Brigade”. It was created by other veterans of Iran-Contra.This secret ninja terror armies of General Petraeus are common knowledge. The weapons dealing, and drug dealing and secret assassins, of Ronald Reagan is now official United States policy. The Secret Government is controlled by the conspirators of Iran-Contra.

The elaborate Undie Bomb conspiracies are being replaced by the street violence. Why would emigrants from Dagestan to the USA, terrorize Boston? Why, maybe money, maybe threats against others, maybe they are convenient patsies. A muslim extremist in London murdered a British soldier. Why? One reason is mental illness. The captured suspect had been tortured in Kenya. Then he may have been forced to act as a “double agent”. People snap, even in the USA. A North Carolina Marine went berserk and murdered innocent people in a shooting spree. That is also terrorism to the victims. Right wing Christian terrorism is far more common than right wing Muslim terroism.

All of us pay for the wars, with money and blood. We are all victims of the wars. We are all victims of a form of Post Traumatic Stress. There are new traumas, day after day. We all are targeted. British spies threatened Muslims and their families. American spies help with this secret police brutality.

Desperate, low level thugs of the Intelligence Community are making more enemies. They need to fill their monthly Terrorist Quota.

Each of the five men, aged between 19 and 25, was warned that if he did not help the security services he would be considered a terror suspect…

“If you do not want anything to happen to your family you will co-operate.”…

“The MI5 agent said, ‘Mohamed if you do not work for us we will tell any foreign country you try to travel to that you are a suspected terrorist.’”

You have traumas, make trauma-ade. That is what the war profiteers do. For example, prominent war profiteers, Michael Sheehan and General John Allen, are encouraging long term investments in the Forever Wars.

Sheehan has been fighting and winning the war on terror for years. And he wanted to attack Al Qaeda before 9/11. But the bureaucrats were too timid.

“What’s it going to take to get them to hit al-Qaeda in Afghanistan? Does al-Qaeda have to hit the Pentagon?”

Yes, Al Qaeda does need to hit the Pentagon. Sheehan predicts twenty more years of war profits. War is forever and everywhere.

“In my judgment, this is going to go on for quite a while, yes, beyond the second term of the president…I think it’s at least 10 to 20 years,”…

“This is the most astounding and most astoundingly disturbing hearing that I’ve been to since I’ve been here, King, an independent said, “You guys have essentially rewritten the Constitution today,” King told four senior U.S. military officials who also testified.

It is astounding and disturbing according to Senator Angus King. Also, astounding and disturbing is the tragic story of General John Allen. The General’s dee cee press agents told us it was tragic. The General was commander of the Afghan War, for years. But much of the time, he was in Florida. He had time to exchange thousands of e-mails with the Tampa Twin, Jill Kelley. Jill had parties for all the important Generals. And he had time to help the other Twin, Natalie, in a nasty custody lawsuit.

General Allen has promised the wars will be “long” or forever, whichever comes first. The General failed to win the war himself.

Indeed, in an interview with CBS’ 60 Minutes, Gen. Allen disavowed the 2014 Lisbon Conference date for ending the war, saying “we’re actually going to be here for a long time” and that the troop levels beyond 2014 were yet to be decided.

Both General Allen and Sheehan have something in common. They have a generous pension. They have government subsidized Health Care which is better than most Americans have. They should lose those taxpayer benefits. They have betrayed the people and the Constitution.

Where is their apology to the American people? Where is their explanation for failures large and small? How much have they profited? The both should resign in disgrace. But in Dee Cee, Endless War for Empire is praised.

EPILOGUE: Revolution For The Hell Of It, Again

President Barack Obama has played this brilliantly. By attacking embedded reporters, he publicly brought the war home. Now the Dee Cee Press at least has to pretend that they are outraged. And they can pose as victims. They have victimized the American people with false narratives for twelve years. Will the formerly embedded lead us to the truth? We can dream.

And everyone is angry with everyone else. Accusations are flying, hearts are hardening, and the new battles are there for everyone to fight. How can we help? Just find a secret and disclose it. Or ridicule a Dee Cee War Pimp.

The more secrets to protect, the higher the cost to neo-cons and their National Security State. The many prosecutions against whistleblowers such as Bradley Manning is likely to cost hundreds of millions of dollars, maybe billions. Most of the secrets, are to protect criminals and corporations.

There are two cultures in the Homeland. And Homeland is such an ugly word. This is the United States with a Constitution. One culture, the Militarists, uses torture and lies and assassinations. The other culture, the Resistance, are American heroes.

Defend the truth tellers. As Abbie Hoffman would probably say, STEAL THESE SECRETS!

Spencer Ackerman: Dedicated Conspiracy Theorists, Bad; Dedicated “Intelligence Officials” Assisting The Underwear Bomb Conspiracy, Good

6:04 pm in Uncategorized by Frank33

Spencer Ackerman presents the unproven claim that Al Qaeda terrorists are mentally ill. This ignores the historical and political and economic motivations that fester in the MidEast. Ackerman has presented the official story that the “Underwear Bomber” was allowed to board Flight 253 because there was no evidence that Abdulmutallab was a terrorist. But almost from the capture of this terrorist, witnesses have claimed that this terrorist received help boarding the flight from security officials. This was denied, until the government admitted it had lied.

Abdulmutallab was under investigation and was allowed to board an airliner without a passport but with a bomb. Ackerman continued to present a false story in posts at Firedoglake, based on his anonymous government sources, even though he apparently was aware that “intelligence officials’ were assisting this terrorist. Ackerman’s response, is to go into stonewall mode, because he disapproves of Conspiracy Theories.

In the post,“The Disturbed” by Spencer Ackerman, describes the reasons and motivations for Al Qaeda, and specifically, KSM and the Underwear Bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. It is mental illness. This is based on an anonymous source who knows a lot about Al Qaeda. Perhaps, this is a government source, but this meme has no evidence to support it. Ackerman has no experience in Psychiatry but he can read the minds of KSM and Underwear Bomber. It is deceptive to echo this nonsense, which probably should be considered neo-con disinformation.

Al Qaeda does not really exist as an organization. It is a small, loose confederation of mercenaries, spies and murderers, who are sometimes deadly, and frequently incompetent. It is not a real organization with a fixed membership such as Skull And Bones. But the evidence is that their motivation is a legitimate and logical to them. The exploitation of the Mideast by Oil Companies and the violent crimes against the people of Palestine is more than enough reasons for a few people to take up violence. Certainly some of them are psychopaths and religious extremists, but so are neo-cons.

Spencer implies that “dedicated conspiracy theorists” are also mentally ill.. That is people who use DISPERATE, not DESPERATE, facts without much rigor. Spencer is dedicated to creating a world free of Conspiracy Theories. With the help of his many anonymous high government secret sources, Spencer fights against these foolish rants.

“If you’ve ever talked to a dedicated conspiracy theorist, you know how much rigor goes into marshaling disperate facts into a superficially-coherent theory.”

Spencer, himself has been a Dedicated Conspiracy Theorist (DCT). He certainly was one when he supported the Irak War repeating the propaganda about non-existent weapons of mass destruction. The Warmongers created false propaganda that Saddam Hussein was a sufficient threat to require War, and Spencer helped in a small way with this effort. These same corporate criminals from Goldman Sachs and Enron and the Oil Companies, are still directing the wars and the Shock Doctrine of Disaster Capitalism.

Spencer at one time was a Dedicated 9-11 Conspiracy Theorist. He believed that Saudi Arabia was behind the 9-11 attacks.

"Certain Sensitive National Security Matters." The section cites "specific sources of foreign support for some of the September 11 hijackers," which most commentators have interpreted to mean Saudi contributions to Al Qaeda-linked charities. But an official who has read the report tells The New Republic that the support described in the report goes well beyond that: It involves connections between the hijacking plot and the very top levels of the Saudi royal family. "There’s a lot more in the 28 pages than money. Everyone’s chasing the charities," says this official. "They should be chasing direct links to high levels of the Saudi government. We’re not talking about rogue elements. We’re talking about a coordinated network that reaches right from the hijackers to multiple places in the Saudi government."

Now Spencer is a very important Dee Cee Poser. He has access to Very Important Anonymous Officials, which makes you very special in Dee Cee. He has moved from the wingnut propaganda rag of the New Republic to one of the best blogs ever, FDL.

But Spencer is a young, and did not go through the clusterfuck of VietNam and COINTELPRO with the US government waging war against its own citizens. Spencer does not understand the VietNam War at all. He claimed that Democrats had to support the War in Irak because they were "haunted by
Vietnam"
. Only neo-cons are haunted by VietNam, the rest of us have the Bushie oil wars to haunt us. Same as it ever was, then as now with a secret unaccountable government, that needs public shills to catapult the propaganda. You pay a price to be embedded in bankster Secret Government which controls a corrupt national security “community”.

Governments always lie if they can, and government spies always lie. We now have the government secretly hiring Public Relations companies and Corporate Lobbyists to manipulate facts and create wars. But the reason there are conspiracy theories is because there are conspiracy facts. Governments, without the knowledge of their people has carried out many False Flag Operations usually to help Multinational Corporations. Destruction of he Reichstag, numerous “Coups” by the CIA to overthrow democratically elected governments., such as Iran, The Gulf Of Tonkin, Watergate, COINTELPRO, Iran-Contra, Operation Gladio, the 2004 Madrid Train Bombings, Russian Apartment bombings in 1999, are just a few examples. Certainly the Underwear Bomb Plot on Christmas, 2009, received assistance from “Intelligence Officials”.

Spencer’s ATTACKERMAN poses as a fearless national security expert. This is questionable. Ackerman claims that Al Qaeda was responsible for the Madrid bombings in 2004. This claim is false. He has failed to pursue the real issues and stories, Ledeen and the Niger Forgeries, the many Cheney False Flag Ops, Sibel Edmonds revelations, the assassinations of David Kelly and Pat Tillman and Benazir Bhutto the admission by Zelikow that Irak was fought for Isreal and of course the National Security Agency’ spying on us all while carrying out a secret war against DCT’s. Crickets….

I respectfully explained that the evidence showed Underwear bomb attack was apparently an inside job according to witnesses. Then Spencer insulted me and did not comment on the facts, until I persisted. The facts were reported in the Detroit News, but not the Washington Independent. Here is a slightly edited version of the comments.

Frank33 March 11th, 2010 at 9:31 am
UnderWear Bomber, Inside Job. Oh just a Conspiracy Theory you say. The Detroit News discovered that Underwear was allowed to board an airliner with a bomb. It was a conspiracy by “intelligence officials” according to the State Department. You may recall the official denials about this incredibly clumsy False Flag Op. Is Dougie Feith still running these? Of course the Village Stenographers in Dee Cee have chosen to cover this up as usual.

At least they have some real reporters in Detroit. But these intelligence officials did put that airliner at risk, allowing a real bomb. The first WTC attack had a similar scenario. In 1993, Federal agents knew all about Al Qaeda Bomb plot and allowed it to proceed and six people were killed.

Patrick F. Kennedy, an undersecretary for management at the State Department, said Abdulmutallab’s visa wasn’t taken away because intelligence officials asked his agency not to deny a visa to the suspected terrorist over concerns that a denial would’ve foiled a larger investigation into al-Qaida threats against the United States.

“Revocation action would’ve disclosed what they were doing,” Kennedy said in testimony before the House Committee on Homeland Security. Allowing Adbulmutallab to keep the visa increased chances federal investigators would be able to get closer to apprehending the terror network he is accused of working with, “rather than simply knocking out one solider in that effort.”

So who tells you what “conspiracy theories” to deprecate? Cass Sunstein? Got any linkies to prove you understand the mind of the Underwear Bomber-controlled by “US officials”. Do you have any linkies about the harmful versus the government approved Conspiracy Theories?
Here is one from 1993.

COGNITIVE INFILTRATION! Oh please comment on how UnderWear B, son of a multi millionaire bankster, could be so depressed. Since we are now practicing psychiatry without a license. Since Spencer has access to so many important guvmint officials, he needs to ask them how they can endanger hundreds of people with their stupid conspiracy.
Spencer, you keep attacking the Conspiracy Theorists, and you will get some K-Street Credibility.

The Detroit News didn’t “discover” anything — no disrespect to them — they faithfully reported Pat Kennedy’s January testimony about how the intelligence community didn’t want Abdulmutallab’s visa revoked because it would jeopardize their investigation of Abdulmutallab. That is not anything conspiratorial, it’s a legitimate intel/law enforcement challenge. It’s not a “false flag” or “inside job” operation. And it’s not “allowing” Abdulmutallab onto the plane with a bomb. It’s a legitimate investigative concern, and the trouble is that Abdulmutallab wasn’t not subsequently placed on a no-fly list where he could have been stopped from boarding a plane.
You simply don’t understand the very material you’re presenting as evidence of a conspiracy theory. Nothing I say or do will ever change your mind, and accordingly, I don’t care. It was a mistake for me to respond to your foolish ranting and the mistake ends this moment.

Frank33 March 11th, 2010 at 1:22 pm

And it’s not “allowing” Abdulmutallab onto the plane with a bomb.

Oh just incompetent security who failed to search Underwear or at least make him take off his shoes. He was escorted onto the plane by Security by the way. This would still be secret but passengers reported it.

It’s a legitimate investigative concern, and the trouble is that Abdulmutallab wasn’t not subsequently placed on a no-fly list where he could have been stopped from boarding a plane.

You are incredibly supportive of the national security neo-cons who have one failure after the other.

Nothing I say or do will ever change your mind, and accordingly, I don’t care. It was a mistake for me to respond to your foolish ranting and the mistake ends this moment

Perhaps you should go to DKos where “Conspiracy Theories” are censored. I present facts that you first deny then admit are true. The government allowed a known terrorist aboard an airliner, and failed to search him. I also presented evidence that the first WTC attack was known to “Security officials”. Then these officials lied about both of these attacks.

Your “meme” about the psychological reasons for “Jihad Terrorism” is doubtful. Your knowledge of KSM and Al Qaeda also is quite incomplete, and seems to follow the fiction of Philip Zelikow. You call me foolish and have insulted me but I have called you no names. I may start.
*****

When confronted with too many facts, Attacker man RETREATED. I am so sad he decided to not talk to me anymore. To summarize, “intelligence officials” assisted Abdulmutallab aboard a jetliner, although he was carrying a bomb. He was being investigated already, but we still do not know where the bomb came from. If he had been under surveillance, should we not know where the bomb came from? Spencer endorses the “legitimate investigative concerns” and has no criticism of these officials and does not apologize for the false information in his posts at Firedoglake.

Was this known terrorist even searched? Public reports say that he had three ounces of explosives, which might not have caused much serious damage. But 8 or 10 ounces could damage a critical component and bring down an airliner. If Underwear had successfully carried out his mission, there would have been no witnesses to expose US Government complicity. President Obama would be called weak against terrorism and he would be blamed for killing hundreds of people. Spencer would be the first one to explain how and why Al Qaeda is.so crazy. No one would ever know that “intelligence officials” helped blow up an airliner. As far back as 1994, Ramzi Yousef had planned attacks against airliners by placing small bombs above the plane’s fuel tank. Security officials allowed Underwear to be seated above a fuel tank, with a bomb in his pants, according to Slate.com.

Had the PETN explosion occurred according to plan and had it penetrated downward, there may indeed have been a "Christmas Day massacre"— seat 19A, where Abdulmutallab spent the flight, is conveniently located about 7 or 8 feet above the fuel tanks. From Abdulmutallab’s lap, the blast would have had to go through his body, the seat cushion, the aluminum and titanium floorboards, and a lot of plastic. If he’d placed the PETN on the floor next to the wall, he would have been more likely to succeed.*

It has not been widely reported that assistance was given to Terrorist by the US Government. It is amazing that Mr. Kennedy said that Underwear was not on the No-Fly List because he was a dangerous terrorist. That seems to suggest if you are on the No-Fly List, you are not dangerous, but it is punishment for being a political dissident. Spencer casually refers to “Pat” Kennedy suggesting they are acquainted. Perhaps we should invite Pat, to visit here to explain why this should not be called a False Flag Op.

Spencer reported on Dec. 31, that Underwear was allowed to board Flight 253 because there was not sufficient evidence that Underwear was a terrorist. But this was not an intelligence failure. Flight 253 was not destroyed. On Feb. 15, at FDL, we learned “al-Qaeda Growing More Cartoonishly Evil, Substantively Pathetic”. Spencer failed to mention the January testimony of Kennedy, effectively continuing the coverup.

Spencer ignored very public reports that were initially denied by the US Government.

A US couple on Flight 253 said they saw a tall, well-dressed man aged about 50 with Abdulmutallab at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport before he boarded the plane.

Kurt and Lori Haskell claimed the man spoke for Abdulmutallab and attempted to get him aboard the flight without a passport, the Reuters news agency reported.p>

Kurt Haskell told his story publicly, and also posted the events of that day. On Dec. 31, Kurt Haskell posted a detailed statement, critical of the FBI.

Today is the second worst day of my life after 12-25-09. Today is the day that I realized that my own country is lying to me and all of my fellow Americans…

When the bomb sniffing dogs arrived, 1 dog found something in a carry on bag of a 30 ish Indian man. This is not the so called "Sharp Dressed" man. I will refer to this man as "The man in orange". The man in orange, who stood some 20ft away from me the entire time until he was taken away, was immediately taken away to be searched and interrogated in a nearby room. At this time he was not handcuffed. When he emerged from the room, he was then handcuffed and taken away…The FBI has, since we landed, insisted that only one man was arrested for the airliner attack (contradicting my account). However, several of my fellow passengers have come over the past few days, backed up my claim, and put pressure on FBI/Customs to tell the truth. Early today, I heard from two different reporters that a federal agency (FBI or Customs) was now admitting that another man has been held…

For the last five days I have been reporting my story of the so called "sharp dressed man." For those of you who haven’t read my account, it involves a sharp dressed "Indian man" attempting to talk a ticket agent into letting a supposed "Sudanese refugee" (The terrorist) onto flight 253 without a passport. I have never had any idea how it played out except to note that the so called "Sudanese reefugee" later boarded my flight and attempted to blow it up and kill me…Please note that there is a very easy way to verify the veracity of my prior "sharp dressed man" account. Dutch police have admitted that they have reviewed the video of the "sharp dressed man" that I referenced. Note that it has not been released anywhere, You see, if my eye witness account is false, it could easily be proven by releasing the video.

We have seen widespread coverup of not just Underwear Bomber, but also many other crimes commited in the name of national security. Huffington Post and Daily Kos routinely censor posts. Hopefully, this little old lake will continue to allow us troublemakers a forum. I wonder if the Washington Independent also practices censorship. I am guessing YES!

What Does Melanie Sloan And CREW Think About Torture, Assassinations And Illegal Wars? Let It Bleed!

7:44 pm in Uncategorized by Frank33

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) is a non-profit legal watchdog group dedicated to holding public officials accountable for their actions. Sometimes, except neo-cons are free to LET IT BLEED.

First, let us quote Mick Jagger, for all you Sweet Neo-Cons "I think that you’re a crock of shit!" What! Do we need yet another report on the hypocrisy and incompetence of CREW? The facts show, Melanie Sloan and her "government watchdog" organization CREW has mostly ignored the neo-conservatives and their criminal conspiracies to destroy our Constitution. The government of the United States, and all the national security resources, has been subverted by traitors who gave us secret government sponsored murder and torture, and wars for Oil. CREW has given us… (*chirping crickets*)

To be fair, some of CREW’s work is decent and admirable. CREW has taken some legal actions against the Bush Crime Family. They have at least acknowledged PTSD of Iraq Vets, disappeared Bushie e-mails, secrecy at the Federal Reserve, military use of perchlorate and a few others. But their Legal challenges are frequently ineffective, late and sometimes questionable. CREW’s vendetta against John Murtha is classic obsessive, compulsive disorder. CREW’s extreme complaint against the Armenian National Committee of America is perhaps just a sneaky way to get donations from Turkey, which was responsible for Armenian genocide a hundred years ago.

Torture, Assassinations and Oil Wars, these totally horrible and immoral crimes continue. For our discussion, let us call them TAW for short. TAW has been generally neglected by CREW. It is easy to examine CREW’s priorities on their list of Lawsuits, Freedom of Information Requests, and Requests For Investigations. The public record of Melanie Sloan, confirms CREW’s failure to fight TAW, compared with such courageous muckrakers as Digby, Jason Leopold, and Marcy Wheeler.

One recent action by CREW is outrageous and and could be considered racist. This has been described already and it needs to be explored further. CREW’s Most Corrupt Democrats selections could not be more phony. CREW must apologize and retract, at least most of these false charges. CREW is LYING about these Democrats! Five of the eight are African Americans and all of the eight are anti-Iraq War.

Melanie has not revealed her conflict of interest concerning the Iraq War. Her husband Eric C. Anderson was involved in secret operations in Iraq, and now works for the criminal corporation SAIC. SAIC was involved in creating the Iraq War and they continue to profit from it, and apparently they will never let the Iraq war end. SAIC also works with NSA who spy on anti-war citizens. Is it too paranoid to worry that this could be an SAIC False Flag Op targeting Democrats for that reason?

CREW calls it corruption when these Democrats were aggressively serving their constituents, just as they were elected to do. Many of the bogus charges deal with incomplete financial reporting. CREW completely conceals all of its own finances. Most of the other charges are laughable and slanderous. There is nothing to suggest that these Democratic Congress members have concealed anything elated to CREW’s charges.

Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. is accused of talking about a possible campaign fund raiser. Sen. Roland Burris had a conversation with impeached Governor Blagojevich about a possible campaign fund raiser. Rep. Charlie Rangel "Improperly used Congressional Stationary" and "Improperly Stored a Vehicle". Rep. Laura Richardson had problems with a home foreclosure, and "city inspectors reported they found junk and debris in the driveway". Rep. Maxine Waters used her influence to try to get a minority owned bank some of the TARP Funds. This is no different from what was done for Goldman Sachs, except for much smaller amounts. Rep. Alan Mollohan was successful at getting "earmarks" for his District, just as most other Congress members do. Rep. Pete Visclosky and Rep. John Murtha are some what more problematic. But there are many more genuinely corrupt pro Iraq War Democrats, that are not listed. But, ethics is one thing, but most everyone in Congress does their best to help their donors, friends and constituents.

So what does this all amount to? It’s worth being clear that no one has formally alleged any wrongdoing by Murtha or Visclosky (or any other lawmakers) in connection with PMA or Kuchera. And as a legal matter, it’s generally very hard to prove an illegal quid pro quo in these sorts of cases.

CREW can be inconsistent, depending on if you are an R or a D. When Sen. David Vitter’s was discovered paying women for sex, CREW asked for an investigation. When Eliot Spitzer was discovered to have paid expensive, but beautiful women for their company, CREW wanted prosecution with the Mann Act, something very different. The threat of the Mann Act is wacky for many reasons. This law has been abused for political and racial purposes, such as punishing doctors who provided medical care to prostitutes. Jack Johnson, the first African American heavy weight boxing champion, and Chuck Berry, the inventor of Rock and Roll, were put in jail. Melanie wanted Spitzer to resign and wanted the Full Metal Mann Act against Spitzer for 20 years.

Given the reports that New York Governor Eliot Spitzer was heard on a wiretap arranging for a prostitute to travel from New York to Washington to meet in his hotel room, it appears that he has violated the Mann Act. This federal law carries a penalty of up to 20 years imprisonment for knowingly persuading or inducing any individual to cross state lines for the purposes of prostitution.

The Scooter Libby Case is a gift that just keeps on giving. One person usually not mentioned, who was part of the Leak Conspiracy is Andrew Card. Card also appeared at John Ashcroft’s hospital bed to get approval for the NSA Spying on Americans program. CREW wants the Cheney testimony concerning the Libby Leak released. Melanie represented Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame versus Scooter Libby, in a civil lawsuit, but Andrew Card was ignored. The Obama Adminstration chose to keep the testimony of Cheney secret, from 2004.

Melanie Sloan, executive director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, said, "It is astonishing that a top Department of Justice political appointee is suggesting other high-level appointees are unlikely to cooperate with legitimate law enforcement investigations. What is wrong with this picture?"

There is nothing wrong but it is astonishing that CREW has not been concerned with the torture approved by the high level appointees Alberto Gonzales and John Yoo and David Addington. CREW’s main complaint against Gonzales is that he helped his client, George Bush avoid jury duty. There have been legal complaints against these torturers. Unlike CREW, there are honorable people, lawyers and otherwise, that stand up for justice, without SAIC’s crooked voting machines. For instance, the VELVET REVOLUTION and VotersForPeace and the GRIEVANCE PROJECT say NO to the neo-cons and they will not LET IT BLEED without a fight against TAW.

If Melanie had included Andrew Card in her lawsuit perhaps it would not have been thrown out of the US District Court. Melanie did not include yet another neo-con, Richard Armitage, who was leaking like a case of diarrhea, the secret identities of Valerie Plame and Brewster Jennings. Armitage, who was #3 at the State Dept., told Bob Woodward and everyone else about Plame. Woodward defended Armitage and said his comments were unimportant and just offhand gossip. Melanie followed the Woodward narrative until she changed her mind that Armitage actually was part of the conspiracy. She added Armitage to the lawsuit which probably helped get it tossed out by the Judge.

There is another even more sinister neo-con that Melanie ignored, Marc Grossman. As the evidence accumulates, it appears Grossman is guilty of Treason and belongs in prison for the rest of his worthless life. Grossman was one of many who supposedly told Libby that Plame was a CIA covert agent. It is alleged that Grossman revealed Plame’s identity in 2001 Also Grossman is an agent of the Turkish government who sold nuclear weapon technology to the highest bidder.

It appears the White House has been spooked by Edmonds and hopes to absolve the U.S. officials allegedly involved in the illegal sale of nuclear technology to private Turkish "entities." One of those officials is likely Marc Grossman, the former ambassador to Turkey during the Clinton administration who also served in the State Department from 2001-2005. Grossman has been named by Edmonds, who claims he was directly involved in the nuclear smuggling ring that she says has allowed the intelligence agencies of Pakistan, Israel, and Turkey to operate in the U.S. with impunity. Totally complicit in the nuke trade, the U.S. government, according to Edmonds, has known of other vast criminal activities of these foreign nations inside the U.S., including drug trafficking, espionage, and money laundering.

Edmonds says "several arms of the government were shielding what was going on," which included an entire national security apparatus associated with the neoconservaties who have profited by representing Turkish interests in Washington. As Justin Raimondo recently reported in Antiwar.com: "…this group includes not only Grossman, but also Paul Wolfowitz, chief intellectual architect of the Iraq war and ex-World Bank president; former deputy defense secretary for policy Douglas J. Feith; Feith’s successor, Eric Edelman; and Richard Perle, the notorious uber- neocon whose unique ability to mix profiteering and warmongering forced him to resign his official capacity as a key administration adviser…. Edmonds draws a picture of a three-sided alliance consisting of Turkish, Pakistani, and Israeli agents who coordinated efforts to milk U.S. nuclear secrets and technology, funneling the intelligence stream to the black market nuclear network set up by the Pakistani scientist A.Q. Khan. The multi-millionaire Pakistani nuclear scientist then turned around and sold his nuclear assets to North Korea, Libya, and Iran."

Sibel Edmonds notified the FBI about this criminal conspiracy, but the FBI says the information does not exist. Grossman who worked at the State Dept under Condi Rice, now receives over a million dollars a year to lobby for a Turkish company IHLAS Holding. But Neo-con criminals and high priced lobbyists still secretly control the government and Grossman is one of the shadowy puppetmasters of that secret government.

Melanie Sloan recently married Dr. Eric C. Anderson. Dr. Anderson is intelligent and talented. It is a shame he has been captured by the Dark Side. He seems to be a member of the secret neo-con government. He was in "intelligence" for several years in Iraq and now works for SAIC. SAIC carries out super secret projects such as NSA’s Total Information Awareness, an American Stasi. His employment does create issues because he profits from the Iraq War which also benefits Melanie. Dr. Anderson has promoted assassinations of "al Qaeda", because they are such a threat to our way of life.

Congressional outrage over not being told the Central Intelligence Agency had a secret program to kill a select list of al-Qaeda leaders is a needless tempest in a teapot…Quite frankly, this country needs a well-run assassination program…According to Parks, the United States recognizes three forms of self defense — against an actual use of force, or hostile act; pre-emptive self defense against an imminent use of force; and self defense against a continuing threat…Washington does not condone assassination as an instrument of national policy, but the president is authorized to take whatever steps are necessary to defend the United States. This includes assassination.

There are reports that assassinations have been outsourced to BLACKWATER/XE. Bob Woodward has discussed a super secret program of assassinations in Iraq. The arguments of Woodward and Dr. Anderson,and John Yoo are very similar. They are reading from the same script which was probably written by John Yoo. Al Qaeda is a threat to us, so murder is justified. They leave out an important fact. Al Qaeda is controlled and financed by Saudi Arabia and Pakistan ISI. This inconvenient truth is always ignored by the war mongers.

More than 6,000 Families and victims of the 9-11 attacks are trying to get justice against the murderers that were sent by Saudi Arabia. There also is increasing evidence that "Al Qaeda in Iraq" are False Flag Ops. That is, much of the violence in Iraq and attacks on our soldiers, are acts of war carried out by a secret mercenary army. Dr. Anderson also fails to consider that some of the Iraki "insurgents" who are targets of Eric Prince’s Blackwater assassins, are fighting to free their country from a foreign military occupation.

There is a pattern that the neo-cons use in the secret government. But they do not seem to realize that their phony act is getting old. First, they put out public trial ballons suggesting that torture or murder is necessary because we are at war. But the neo-con lawyers, such as John Yoo, have already written documents to make it legal, in secret. Then hired guns, start doing their dirty, violent, sick work. First, John Yoo made Torture legal. Then he made Assassination legal. But it is also necessary to corrupt the legal system, and who knows what else they have corrupted. Guess what else John Yoo has made legal? FALSE FLAG OPERATIONS!

The U.S. must ask the courts to give us flexibility to combat fundamentalist Islam as it would any other hostile ideology, such as communism during the Cold War.

Another tool would have our intelligence agencies create a FALSE TERRORIST ORGANIZATION. It could have its own websites, recruitment centers, training camps and fundraising operations. It could LAUNCH FAKE TERRORIST OPERATIONS AND CLAIM CREDIT FOR REAL TERRORIST STRIKES, helping to sow confusion within Al Qaeda’s ranks, causing operatives to doubt others’ identities and to question the validity of communications.

Renewing the Patriot Act and staying the course at Guantanamo Bay remain important tools for gaining the intelligence that can prevent another Sept. 11. But we should realize that these measures remain fundamentally defensive. In order to prevail, we must develop an offensive strategy that focuses less on controlling territory or cities, none of which Al Qaeda possesses, and more on new ways to disrupt and destroy networks.

There was a story about CREW and Marcy Wheeler by the GRIEVANCE PROJECT. An attempt was made to enlist CREW to file complaints against the corruption in the Department of Justice. It seems CREW is lazy and used the strategy of the Grievance Project without giving either assistance or credit. The Grievance Project even provided legal documents to CREW to use. At least CREW should have said thank you for the work and the documents.

As far back as 2006, I began contacting various parties-including CREW-to suggest that an organized effort to file grievances would be an effective tactic for responding to the litany of attorneys engaged in questionable ethical conduct…CREW never responded…As attorney after attorney continued to violate their ethical obligations with impunity, my frustration grew that there was no organized effort to promote a grievance strategy. As a result, I launched The Grievance Project in October, 2007…

I began preparing a grievance complaint against Michael J. Elston for his conduct described therein as well as for his role in the firing of United States Attorneys, including John McKay, Bud Cummins, Carol Lam and Paul Charlton. When I first saw Marcy Wheeler’s headline today declaring that CREW had filed grievances against Mr. Elston, my initial thoughts were that I just got "scooped" by CREW and that I had wasted a lot time working on my Elston complaint. Almost immediately, I was quite pleased that CREW had finally adopted a (my?) grievance strategy and had filed the complaints….

Marcy Wheeler notes that this may have an affect on the law firms that have hired Mr. Elston and Ms. Esther Slater McDonald, stating that "[a]t the very least, one would hope this would embarrass the big corporate firms these two alleged law-breakers work for."…Although Mr. Elston is a member of the Illinois, Kansas, Missouri and Virginia Bars, CREW filed a complaint against Mr. Elston only in Virginia and only sent copies of Virginia complaint to the the Illinois, Kansas and Missouri Bars. I believe a stronger approach would not just provide these states with a copy of the Virginia complaint but would also be to file official complaints against Mr. Elston in Illinois, Kansas and Missouri…

Because Mr. Elston is also in violation of his ethical obligations due to his involvement with his role in the firing of United States Attorneys, including John McKay, Bud Cummins, Carol Lam and Paul Charlton, I will finish my Elston complaint with respect to to these violations. Now that CREW has adopted a (my?) grievance strategy, I’ve prepared grievance complaints against Alberto Gonzales, Kyle D. Sampson, Lisa Murkowski, Harriet E. Miers, Mark Everett Fuller, and John Yoo that are ready for CREW to simply print and file.

CREW has claimed a righteous, ethical standard, except this does not apply to themselves. In a perfect world, CREW would be defending the victims of torture and neo-conservative wars, secret or not. But it is not perfect. CREW has provided NO PROOF their "corrupt Democrats" are actually corrupt. They need to retract their lies, or prove their claims. CREW also must release their IRS Form 990 that shows their financial supporters. Melanie Sloan needs to reveal what financial benefits both she and her husband receive from SAIC.

If you claim to be a real government watch dog, your own honesty is an absolute requirement. But in the brutal Washington DC political battlefield, most of all, you have to be half Bloodhound and half Pit Bull. CREW is a Toy Poodle. But FireDogs are awesome!
