If it did not have such potential dire consequences, it would be so absurd that it would be laughable. However, if MSM reports are to be believed, had alleged underwear bomber Umar Fauruk Abdul Matallab was nearly succesful in igniting explosives in his pants on NW flight 253 from Denmark to Detroit, which would have been no laughing matter. The attempt was unsuccesful and he was tackled and subdued by passengers. Now we are being told this wealthy native of the Sudan trained in Yemen, at that he has advised under initial questioning that many more trained with him and more attacks are on the way.
Speaking of passengers, two lawyers (who happen to be married) are reporting Abdul Matallab had help boarding the plane in Amsterdam, by a mysterious sharp dressed man who seemingly pulled a few strings at the Northwest boarding area in order to get this young man aboard despite no passport. And another American family told local reporters that another mystery man videotaped Abdul Mattallab and the entire flight (including the attempted bombing and incident that followed). This seems strange, yet similar connections and events have surrounded other terror attempts, suggesting the earmarks of a possible psy ops. And speaking of similarities, this is not even the first attempted underwear bombing, as a Saudi Prince was targeted in August of this year.
Update: Now the MSM and Breitbart.com are reporting that Intelligence had advance notice of the bombing plot, but the disjointed warnings could not be "pieced together" by different agencies, according to President Obama. If this is true, this is an absolute failure of the CIA and others to do their job. After all, at it's very essence, intelligence work IS, among other things, the piecing together of information into a coherent picture. If Central Intellegence or the National Security Agency are having trouble piecing together and analyzing data and information, than they are pretty much useless. This is nonsense and the same type of garbage we were told after 9-11 and almost every suspicious terrorist attack.
The MSM and Obama would have you believe that intelligence agencies could not coordinate and break down the dissemination and distrubution of relevent data or increased chatter. Right. It's the very essence of their job, yet we are supposed to believe they do not know how to do this. Notice how efficient and effective these same agencies were are are when spying or collecting data on American citizens and political enemies (remember Cointelpro)?
In fact, my next post will concentrate on breaking this down into an etiology. A blueprint for a manufactured or co-opted terrorist attack. Always the intial shock of the attack, the "who could have known?" hue and cry, and then as the dust begins to settle, a cry for more intrusive security measures, stricter rules or laws, and the discovery that intelligence or an administration had advanced warnings that an attack of such a manner was possible, or planned, but either dismisses or ignores this salient information.
Stay tuned. All are present here...
