Terrorists "R" us. Washington bears full responsibility. Numerous schemes are planned. Some are alleged and foiled. Others involve violent plots. Media scoundrels convict innocent people in the court of public opinion.
Later they're wrongfully accused and prosecuted. Juries are intimidated to convict. Imprisonment follows. Culprits remain free. One scheme leads to others. Numerous political prisoners fill America's gulag.
Even The New York Times was candid. At least party so. Most often it's part of the guilt by accusation chorus. On April 28, 2012, it headlined "Terrorist Plots, Hatched by the FBI," saying:
"THE United States has been narrowly saved from lethal terrorist plots in recent years — or so it has seemed."
Dozens were foiled just in time. Among others, they include:
• a fake shoe bomber;
• fake underwear bomber;
• fake Times Square bomber;
• an earlier one there;
• fake shampoo bombers;
• fake Al Qaeda woman planning fake mass casualty attacks on New York landmarks;
• fake Oregon bomber;
• fake armed forces recruiting station bomber;
• fake synagogue bombers;
• fake Chicago Sears Tower bombers;
• fake FBI and other building bombers;
• fake National Guard, Fort Dix and Quantico marine base attackers;
• fake 9/11 bombers;
• fake Boston bombers; and
• numerous others.
At issue is enlisting public support for America's fake war on terror and real ones that follow. FBI operatives are involved. Their "undercover agents and informers (pose) as terrorists," said The Times.
They entrap innocent victims. They induce, influence or provoke plots that wouldn't be hatched otherwise. They aid, abet and facilitate them.
Familiar storylines repeat. Many sound more like bad film plots than real ones. Orchestrated stings are used.
US Legal.com calls them "deceptive operation(s) designed to nab criminals. Generally, a law enforcement officer or cooperative member of the public plays a role as criminal partner or potential victim and goes along with a suspect's actions to gather evidence of the suspect's wrongdoing."
They're derived from the practice of using undercover cops to catch criminals. It means "set(ting) a trap to catch a crook."
"Carefully orchestrated sting operations usually hold up in court," said The Times. Post-9/11, undercover FBI operations became commonplace.
According to ACLU lawyer Mike German:
"Prior to 9/11, it would be very unusual for the FBI to present a crime opportunity that wasn't in the scope of the activities that a person was already involved in."
Most terror plots are fake. Some are real. Nearly always terrorists "R" us. False flags describe them. Official reports about Oklahoma City's Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building Bombing left unsaid what happened.
Oklahoma City bombing.org's Kevin Caruso described it as follows:
"On April 19, 1995, at 9:02 am local time, a massive truck bomb exploded in front of the (building), killing 168 people (including 19 children) and injuring over 800."
The building was heavily damaged. So were more than 300 others within a sixteen-block radius. Dozens of cars were destroyed or damaged. The blast was heard up to 30 miles away.
Officials said a rented Ryder truck with around 5,000 pounds of explosives caused it. Within 90 minutes of the incident, Timothy McVeigh was arrested. He was accused of a firearms offense. He spent two days in jail. He then faced bombing charges.
On May 10, Terry Nichols, his alleged accomplice, was apprehended in Kansas. On June 11, 2001, McVeigh was executed. Nichols received life in prison.
Prosecutors claimed they timed the attack to coincide with the second anniversary of the Waco Mount Carmel Center siege. It began on February 28, 1993. On April 19, it ended in immolation.
It killed 76 Branch Davidians. It was state-sponsored terrorism. Attorney General Janet Reno approved it. No one was held accountable.
Post-Oklahoma City analysis was conducted by accredited explosives experts and professional demolition contractors. They determined that high-grade military explosives and detonators were internally placed.
Elgin Air Force Base's Armament Wright Laboratory studied the incident. No single truck bomb caused it. Former director/explosives and ordnance expert/(Ret.) Brig. General Benton K. Partin was in charge.
He determined that no single truck bomb caused it. The ANFO truck bomb couldn't cause steel-reinforced concrete columns to collapse. According to Partin:
"The total incompatibility with a single truck bomb lies in the fact that either some of the columns collapsed that should not have collapsed or some of (them) are still standing that should have collapsed and did not. This is a classic cover-up of immense proportions."
"To cause the damage pattern that occurred to the Murrah building, there would have to have been demolition charges at several supporting column bases, at locations not accessible from the street, to supplement the truck bomb damage."
"Indeed, a careful examination of photographs showing the collapsed column bases reveal a failure mode produced by demolition charges and not by a blast from the truck bomb."
Additional forensic evidence showed other devices were involved. Official reports suppressed what happened. Media scoundrels regurgitated their lies. Doing so subverted truth.
In 1993, Ralph Schoenman asked "Who Bombed the US World Trade Center?" FBI investigators were heading for New York when it happened. "Thousands of people and dozens of agencies here and abroad" got involved.
The alleged culprit was named before "the ink (was) dry on the (official) press release…." Israel had advance knowledge. In 1990, FBI operatives had "advance plans and full documentation of where to find everyone and everything…."
Clinton officials gave Al Qaeda support. Ramzi Yousef and five other Muslims were convicted.
So was Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman ("the Blind Sheikh") wrongfully on charges of seditious conspiracy, solicitation of murder, solicitation of an attack on American military installations, conspiracy to commit murder, and conspiracy to bomb in connection with the 1993 World Trade Center attack.
His prosecution followed the bombing investigation. He was sentenced to life in prison.
He was a former CIA asset. He was involved in Clinton's Balkan wars. He recruited and armed Mujahideen fighters for Bosnia.
Today they're called Al Qaeda. The CIA created them. They're US assets. They're used strategically as enemies and allies.
9/11 is the Big Lie of our time. The official story doesn't wash. Irrefutable facts exposed it. They separated myth from reality. Growing numbers worldwide understand. Perhaps one day everyone will.
In his book titled "9/11 Ten Years Later: When State Crimes Against Democracy Succeed," David Ray Griffin said:
"Getting the 9/11 lie exposed is essential. One obvious reason is simple justice."
"There also needs to be justice in the sense of punishment for those who engineered this crime." They include top government, military and CIA officials.
Perhaps they consider themselves patriots. They committed "murder and treason."
"Many lines of evidence show that 9/11 was an inside job." Exposing it is vital "for the sake of preventing further crimes against democracy."
State-sponsored terrorism is policy. Repressive laws target dissent. Imperial wars follow. Fictitious enemies at home and abroad justify them.
Unchallenged global dominance matters most. Humanity may not survive the next onslaught. The threat's too grave to ignore. Dismissing it comes at our own risk.
