Mary, what struck me was the brainless and or naive comments below the article. A couple people "got it" and spoke of it being a false flag event. The others, as per usual called them names and even said their words were "illegal" and they were guilty of "sedition."Government plants or dumbass, brainwashed Americans? Hard to tell them apart.
"flight to safety" purrrrrr ........Abdulmutallab's ticket came from a KLM office in Accra, Ghana. "Abdulmutallab bought the $2,831 round-trip ticket from Lagos, Nigeria, to Detroit via Amsterdam on Dec. 16." http://allafrica.com/stories/200912281447.html Under World Bank tutelage, Ghana is set to benefit from the discovery of oil offshore in 2007. Some time in the second half of next year, the country will begin pumping 120,000 barrels of crude a day, eclipsing earnings from gold and cocoa. http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601116&sid=aiDUdBo.LB1c&refer=africa
A few news items I read and my reaction to them;Detroit terror attack: passenger profiling failed (Telegraph.co.uk)No, nothing failed, not even the PETN package the dude had in his underwear. It wasn't meant to explode. It couldn't explode. All it could do was go up in flames.Pentaerythritol tetranitrate...."Muttalab had apparently tried to detonate PETN sewn into his underwear, by adding liquid acid from a syringe". C(CH2OH)4 + 4 HNO3 → C(CH2ONO2)4 + 4 H2O"PETN's preparation involves the nitration of pentaerythritol with a mixture of concentrated nitric and sulfuric acid. The preferred method of nitration is the ICI method, which utilizes concentrated nitric acid (98%+) alone, as mixed acid can create unstable sulfonated by-products.""The most obvious use of PETN is as an explosive. It is more sensitive to shock or friction than TNT or tetryl. It is difficult to detonate, as dropping it or setting it on fire will typically not cause an explosion."Fire, no explosion. Obama ; ordered his staff to "keep up the pressure on those who would attack our country" rather than reacting defensively."We will continue to use every element of our national power to disrupt, to dismantle and defeat the violent extremists who threaten us, whether they are from Afghanistan or Pakistan, Yemen or Somalia, or anywhere where they are plotting attacks against the US homeland."He promised: "We will not rest until we find all who were involved and hold them accountable."Good luck, Mr. pResident. You could take a trip to Langley and save all the rhetoric. Obama; "Apparently, the suspect in the Christmas incident was in this system, but not on a watch list such as the so-called No-Fly List."Well, well. Not on the no-fly list. Not a dangerous dissident? Just another CIA asset? "In the system"? Ah, another parcel of truth from the pResident's mouth. "In the system". Eyewitnesses reported Abdulmutallab appeared to be in a trance. "I took some kind of object that was already melting and smoking out of him," Schuringa said. "He put something on fire that was hidden in his pants."Schuringa said a liquidy substance dripped onto the floor, causing two pillows to go up in flames. Nearby passengers screamed and scattered as crew members rushed to retrieve fire extinguishers."It went very quick," Schuringa said. "We were all just reacting to the fire. Everyone was panicking."The brave movie man said he screamed for water as he tried to put out the fire with his hands.Other passengers joined in trying to stamp out the flames, but the fire intensified.Schuringa said he realized then that he needed to get Abdulmutallab away from the flames."I grabbed the suspect out of the seat because if he was wearing any more explosives, it would be very dangerous," Schuringa said."We took him to first class ... stripped him and contained him to make sure he had no more weapons, no more bombs."Schuringa said that throughout the terrifying plane ordeal, Abdulmutallab appeared to be "in a trance."Read more: http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/2009/12/27/2009-12-27_how_flying_dutchman_made_stop_he_was_getting_on_fire__i_just_jumped_over_the_sea.html#ixzz0b6bqEXM7In a trance. Another one with that stupid look on his face. Like, someone bullshitted me to the max! Al Qaeda; "we did it". Of course they did. But.......Al Qaeda = al CIA duh. cs
I aint finished. A few days later, the deja vu. Same flight number, same route, similar suspect from the same country. Same colour. This time the dude had to take a dump and stayed a bit too long on the potty. People freaked (programmed freak out) and the 1st incident was polished. "Yemen: Al-Qaeda's New Staging Ground?" ( TIME magazine )Like, how many fronts does this here war on terra have? (clearly and obviously) Instrumental false flag Ops. Action, reaction. We see the reactions goin' down now, each and every day. So what's the ultimate goal?I'll spell it out fer yaz. Goal Numero Uno ; stay put. More troops and more fronts. Continual war = the MIC hits a vein, like a fucking vampire so thirsty for blood it forgets to keep its eyes open. Numero Dos; Slaves-R-us. A furthering of the reduction of civil liberties and human rights. Fuck that, excellerate the movement. Numero Tres; Global Strategical Positioning....the New World Order is here NOW and the best way to keep it going is to defend it with force. I give up. America goes home and drinks.
Very nice analysis, Tony, and you had me laughing with "Good luck, Mr. President. You could take a trip to Langley and save all the rhetoric." When will they get some competent help?
