I’m going to try and not be cynical this morning. I’m really going to try, but when I heard yesterday the CIA “foiled” the plot of AQAP, my bullshit detector was reading off the charts!(AQAP stands for Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula…how cute. I wonder who came up with the acronym?)
In order for you to understand why the bullshit detector was going off, we need to hop in the time machine and take a trip back to the far past. Our destination will be December 25th 2009 AD.
Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab (aka the underwear bomber) was arrested for lighting his underoos on fire aboard Northwest Airlines Flight 253, en route from Amsterdam to Detroit.
The 25 year old Umar confessed, and was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole on February 16, 2012. Now that we’ve got that out of the way let’s look at some facts.
- Umar’s father is a well known banker, who recently retired as chairman of First Bank PLC, which is one of Nigeria’s premier banks. Umaru (Umar’s father) contacted the U.S. Embassy before the incident on the 25th, and told a State Department Official as well as a CIA representative that his son was in Yemen, and has most likely become radicalized. cnn.com
- Undersecretary Patrick Kennedy testified before congress, that an unnamed agency objected to the revoking of the Umar’s Visa, after notification from his father of his activities and the entering of the Visa VIPER message. youtube video
- Airline passenger Kurt Haskell and his wife Lori, reported seeing an “Indian man” help the reported underwear bomber on to the flight. youtube video
Now if you recall this underwear accident was used as the main selling point to add more of the beloved body scanners we now have to our airports. This is a perfect example of “problem, reaction, solution.” to borrow a phrase coined by David Icke.
From all appearances, Umar was used as a willing patsy. He was not only allowed to board the plane, but according to eyewitnesses he was actually helped by an unidentified man. Umar’s underwear had given the government the excuse it needed to add more scanners, and to further the clamp down at the airports, where you’re being conditioned to be charged guilty before proven innocent. And if you don’t wish to unravel some DNA strands with the back scatter scanners, you can opt for a free rub down from your local TSA representative.
With our knowledge from the past, let’s fast forward the time machine to the present day. The MSM (main stream media) wants us to buy the story hook, line, and sinker. According to most recent reports, we have a double agent working for the CIA or Saudi Intelligence, (it’s unclear at this time) and he turned himself and his underwear over to authorities. The administration will now stake the claim of foiling the dastardly plot under their watch, the TSA is outstanding, and we’re winning the war against Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (In Yemen).
What are we to believe given the previous incident? I for one smell something nasty, and it’s not in my pants.
