Al Qaeda Bomb Plot: Would-Be Bomber Was CIA Informant

Huffington Post

USA Today

In this video  from USA Today, they say the FBI is examining the bomb, which was an upgrade to the device used in the underwear bomb “attack” in 2010.  They also say  “it is not clear who made the bomb,” and suspect it was the mastermind responsible for other Al Qaeda bomb creations.  They said they didn’t know the identity of the would-be (US-employed) bomber, meaning they were “getting better at disrupting these plots” and that no airplane tickets had been purchased, nor had a place for the attack been decided.  Today it is announced it was our CIA.

Exactly what kind of  “plot” did the US so brilliantly “foil” if a plot really had yet to exist?  They merely had a bomb given to them because they did what they do best: lie.  Of course it’s likely they were the ones who made it, considering that they have done it in the past.   Our government has done this over and over (New York Times), and then bragged about their competence.  Listen to the blatant lie told by Hilary Clinton, that “the plot itself indicates that these terrorists keep trying, uh, they keep trying to devise more and more perverse and terrible ways to kill innocent people.”  If it was our C.I.A. informant who had the bomb in his possession, and there was never a threat of it getting onto a plane, why did officials need to announce that it would not have been detected at the airport by a metal detector because it contained no metal,  the new body scanners at SOME airports may not have detected it, and the only guaranteed way to find it would have been through the groin groping?  What security procedures will be next, cavity checks for all?  Or are they trying to improve public confidence in government’s ability to stop terrorists before they get on airplanes because they may make airport procedures less criminal?

I would not expect any real changes for the traveling public,” said House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich. “There is a concern that overseas security doesn’t match ours. That’s an ongoing challenge.”

Okay, wishful thinking.  It’s also very convenient timing now that TSA opposition has reached a boiling point that is threatening to overflow.  These lies are sickening.  Why do they want to molest us?  Is this not enough to make it clear that our government is the biggest terrorist organization on earth,  with their false flag attacks being just one of the reasons why?  Why can’t people see that we are all individually under threat of a terrorist attack by the banker-corporation-hijacked US government?  This post will go over how the US has continually “foiled” their own plots and had ties with terrorists.

From The Huffington Post

WASHINGTON — The CIA had al-Qaida fooled from the beginning.

Last month, U.S. intelligence learned that al-Qaida’s Yemen branch hoped to launch a spectacular attack using a new, nearly undetectable bomb aboard an airliner bound for America, officials say.

But the man the terrorists were counting on to carry out the attack was actually working for the CIA and Saudi intelligence, U.S. and Yemeni officials told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

The FBI is still analyzing the explosive, which was intended to be concealed in a passenger’s underwear.  Officials said it was an upgrade over the bomb that failed to detonate on board an airplane over Detroit on Christmas 2009. This new bomb contained no metal and used a chemical – lead azide – that was to be a detonator in a nearly successful 2010 plot to attack cargo planes, officials said.

Security procedures at U.S. airports remained unchanged Tuesday, a reflection of both the U.S. confidence in its security systems and a recognition that the government can’t realistically expect travelers to endure much more. Increased costs and delays to airlines and shipping companies could have a global economic impact, too.

While airline checks in the United States mean passing through an onerous, sometimes embarrassing series of pat-downs and body scans, procedures overseas can be a mixed bag. The U.S. cannot force other countries to permanently adopt the expensive and intrusive measures that have become common in American airports over the past decade.

The Transportation Security Administration sent advice to some international air carriers and airports about security measures that might stave off an attack from a hidden explosive.  It’s the same advice the U.S. has issued before, but there was a thought that it might get new attention in light of the foiled plot.

Might it also get the public’s attention, convincing them that there are still threats of terrorism facing us everyday?

Hilary Clinton: We Created Al Qaeda

The bomb the US used in this “foiled plot” to “dupe Al Qaeda” is an upgrade from the one used against us in the botched underwear bomber attack that prompted the 2010 government-mandated molestation in airports, and the roll-out of the strip search machines that made ex head of the TSA, Micahel Chertoff, and other government officials a nice amount of money.   It has been admitted that the government was well aware (From U.S. Department of State website) of the 2010 underwear bomber, especially after his father alerted CIA officials  to his son’s extremism and terrorist ties.

Umar Abdulmutallab in 2009

Umar Abdulmutallab in 2009

of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, 2009 Underwear Bomber

On November 11, 2009, British intelligence officials sent the U.S. a cable indicating that a man named “Umar Farouk” had spoken to al-Awlaki, pledging to support jihad, but the cable did not reflect Abdulmutallab’s last name.[64]Abdulmutallab’s father made a report to two CIA officers at the U.S. Embassy in Abuja, Nigeria, on November 19 regarding his son’s “extreme religious views”,[5][65] and told the embassy that Abdulmutallab might be in Yemen.[8][21][35][66] Acting on the report, the suspect’s name was added in November 2009 to the U.S.’s 550,000-name Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment, a database of the U.S. National Counterterrorism Center. It was not added, however, to the FBI’s 400,000-name Terrorist Screening Database, the terror watch list that feeds both the 14,000-name Secondary Screening Selectee list and the U.S.’s 4,000-name No Fly List,[67] nor was his U.S. visa revoked.[21]

U.S. State Department officials said in Congressional testimony that the State Department had wanted to revoke Abdulmutallab’s visa, but U.S. intelligence officials requested that his visa not be revoked. The intelligence officials’ stated reason was that revoking Abdulmutallab’s visa could have foiled a larger investigation into al-Qaeda.[68]

Abdulmutallab’s name had come to the attention of intelligence officials many months before that,[69] but no “derogatory information” was recorded about him.[44] A Congressional official said that Abdulmutallab’s name appeared in U.S. reports reflecting that he had connections to both al-Qaeda and Yemen.[70] The NCTC did not check to see whether Abdulmutallab’s American visa was valid, or whether he had a British visa that was valid; therefore, they did not learn that the British had rejected Abdulmutallab’s visa application earlier in 2009.[11] The British did not inform the Americans because the visa application was denied to prevent immigration fraud and not for a national security purpose.[11]

So was the government planning on using him as a front for a  future terror plot “foiling,” or were they already involved in a terror plot with Abdulmutallab?   In this video the Undersecretary of State for Management, Patrick Kennedy,  said at a Hearing before the House Committee on Homeland Security:

“There have been numerous cases where our unilateral and uncoordinated revocation would have disrupted important investigations that were underway by one of our national security partners. They had the individual under investigation and our revocation action would have disclosed the U.S. Government’s interest in the individual and ended our colleagues’ ability to quietly pursue the case and identify terrorists’ plans and co-conspirators .”

An official from Counterterrorism & Interagency Communications said Abdulmutallab was not on any watch list, no fly list, or selectee list even though the government had been alerted that he was a threat.  Eight years after 9/11, a million ridiculous rules and regulations later, and more bloated  bureaucracies, but our government is still letting terrorists slip right through their hands?  Kennedy testified that they do not always revoke terrorists’ Visas  because it could disrupt an investigation that may lead to an entire terror network instead of just one (dangerous) individual.  In this case, according to an eye witness,  he  went through security without a passport  after being accompanied by an older, well-dressed Indian-looking man who spoke with an American accent, and intervened when  Abdulmultallab was told he could not get on the flight without a passport.  The man was very insistent, resulting in the underwear bomber boarding the plane where he set off his little nutcracker firework.   Little did he know that he also set off  the fireworks of the TSA and their nut cracking/underwear-stripping reign of terror.  Here is a  victim statement given to federal courts by eyewitness Kurt Haskell, who witnessed the events with his wife, Lori.  Both Kurt and Lori are respected  lawyers.  I can’t help but wonder if  it was a purposefully dysfunctional bomb.

Remember this recent instance of the US foiling it’s own plot yet again?

On May 1, 2012 it was reported that the  FBI arrested 5 accused of plotting to blow up Ohio 82 bridge in Cuyahoga valley with inert bombs purchased from the FBI.

This next foiled plot is great considering the FBI provided an inert bomb to a “terrorist” who had no ties with Al Qaeda and was involved with the FBI because he thought THEY were Al Qaeda.

USA Today -FBI Foils Suicide Bomber on U.S. Capitol – February 17, 2012

The FBI has arrested a suspect (Mohamed Osmam Mohamud) who allegedly to detonate a suicide bomb, USA TODAY’s Kevin Johnson reports.

Update at 4:50 p.m. ET: A bail hearing has been set for 29-year-old Amine El Khalifi of Alexandria, Va., an unemployed Moroccan who authorities said is in the United States illegally. He arrived when he was 16 and overstayed his visitor’s visa.

Update at 4:50 p.m. ET: During the year-long investigation, El Khalifi detonated explosives at a quarry in the capital region with undercover operatives.  He is NOT BELIEVED TO BE AFFILIATED WITH AL-QAEDA, officials said.

Update at 2:13 p.m. ET: The man, believed to be in his 30s, was apprehended while on his way to allegedly carry out the attack with a device that undercover agents had PREVIOUSLY rendered inoperable, said a federal law enforcement official who was not authorized to comment publicly.

The official says the suspect was the target of an undercover investigation for about two months and that the public was never in any danger.

Update at 2:04 p.m. ET: A U.S. law enforcement official said the person arrested was canvassing the U.S. Capitol with violent intentions, the Associated Press reports. He WAS NOT believed to have any known CONNECTIONS TO AL QAEDA, the AP reports.

U.S. Capitol police say their officers were also involved in the arrest.

Update at 1:59 p.m. ET: U.S. officials said the arrest “was the culmination of a lengthy and extensive operation during which the individual was closely and carefully monitored,” WUSA TV reports.

Williams says the suspect was arrested by the FBI after receiving a vest that he thought contained explosives, but were actually inert materials.

NBC and Fox report that the SUSPECT THOUGHT THAT THE FBI AGENTS WHO WERE ASSISTING HIM WERE ASSOCIATES OF AL QAEDA.

If he was “on his way” to D.C. but lives in Virginia, did he fly there?  And if he never had any ties to Al Qaeda, but was working with officials because he thought they were Al Qaeda, and he received the explosive vest from our  government that they had “previously rendered inoperable,” wouldn’t that mean our government just created a terrorist, then stopped him before doing what they had “assisted” him in planning with the device they gave him?

F.B.I. Says Oregon Suspect Planned ‘Grand’ Attack November 27, 2010

The bomb, which was in a van parked off Pioneer Courthouse Square, was a fake — planted by F.B.I. agents as part of the elaborate sting — but “the threat was very real,” Arthur Balizan, the F.B.I.’s special agent in charge in Oregon, said in a statement released by the Department of Justice.

At the same time, I want to reassure the people of this community that, at every turn, we denied him the ability to actually carry out the attack,” he added.

The terrorism attempt was the latest is a string of plots since last year involving Americans or immigrants who had become radicalized, often through exposure to extremist Web sites. In May, a Pakistani-born American was arrested in the plotting of a car bomb attack in Times Square, and later pleaded guilty.

But in contrast to that plan, which the authorities learned about only at the last minute, the F.B.I. had been tracking Mr. Mohamud since 2009 and his planning unfolded under the scrutiny and even assistance of undercover agents, officials said.

Mr. Mohamud was arrested 20 minutes before the tree-lighting ceremony started.

So at every turn they denied his attack plan that “unfolded under the scrutiny and even assistance of undercover agents,”  but they waited 20 minutes before he was to detonate an inert bomb planted by the FBI (pg 4 of actual arrest warrant under Investigation Summary)?

Oregon Resident Arrested in Plot to Bomb Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in Portland:

Vehicle Bomb Left at Scene Was Inert and Posed No Danger to Public  November 26, 2010

“The complaint alleges that Mohamud attempted to detonate what he believed to be a vehicle bomb at a crowded holiday event in downtown Portland, but a coordinated undercover law enforcement action was able to thwart his efforts and ensure no one was harmed,” said David Kris, Assistant Attorney General for National Security. “While the public was never in danger from the device, this case serves as yet another reminder of the need for continued vigilance both at home and abroad.”

“The threat was very real. Our investigation shows that Mohamud was absolutely committed to carrying out an attack on a very grand scale,” said Arthur Balizan, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI in Oregon. “At the same time, I want to reassure the people of this community that, at every turn, we denied him the ability to actually carry out the attack.”

How can they say “the public was never in any danger from the device,”  and then in the next sentence say “The threat was very real”?

American citizens Anwar Al-Awlaki (right) and his 16 year old son, Abdul-Rahman, were both assasinated by US government without due process.

Remember when Al Qaeda’s #2 in charge,” American citizen Anwar Al-Awlaki, recently assassinated by the US government without due process, dined at the Pentagon months after September 11th, 2001?

Then of course we have our involvement with Al Qaeda and opposition forces in Syria and Libya.

On October 23, 2011  Senator McCain said US may consider military action in Syria.

On February 2, 2012, reported on February 20th, Senators McCain and Graham said Syrians “deserve weapons” and wants to give them weapons “indirectly.”   Remember, Graham and McCain wrote the NDAA, which passed, and allows for indefinite military detention without charge or trial for Americans associated in any way to terrorism.  Watch Graham yell on the Senate floor “Shut up!  You don’t get a lawyer!” in regards to Americans and the NDAA provisions.

NYtimes.com -Two Senators Say U.S. Should Arm Syrian Rebels

 The senators, both of whom are on the Senate Armed Services Committee, said that rebel fighters deserved to be armed and that helping them take on the Syrian government would aid Washington’s effort to weaken Iran.

“I believe there are ways to get weapons to the opposition without direct United States involvement,” Mr. McCain said. “The Iranians and the Russians are providing Bashar Assad with weapons. People that are being massacred deserve to have the ability to defend themselves.”

“So I am not only not opposed,” he said, “but I am in favor of weapons being obtained by the opposition.”

On February 16, 2012  U.S. intelligence officials told Congress that Al Qaeda of Iraq was likely behind a series of bombings against the Syrian regime in recent months.

On February 26, 2012 Hilary Clinton admitted the US and Al Qaeda are on the same side in Syria.

On April 4, 2012 PressTV .com reported that leaked emails show US security firm helping Syrian rebels.

In Libya last year we supported a regime aided by Al-Qaeda, without congressional approval.  On March 18, 2011 The Telegraph published an article Libya: the West and al-Qaeda on the same side

Leaked emails show an American private security company, SCG International has been helping the Syrian opposition in its efforts to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad at the request of US officials.

The whistleblower website, Wikileaks, released the emails sent by SCG Chief Executive James F. Smith, the former director of the notorious company Blackwater, which is blamed for the killing of many civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan.

In one of the emails, Smith says his company was contracted to engage the Turkey-based Syrian opposition in a so-called “fact finding mission,” but “the true mission is how they can help in regime change.”

WikiLeaks cables, independent analysts and reporters have all identified supporters of Islamist causes among the opposition to Col Gaddafi’s regime, particularly in the towns of Benghazi and Dernah.

An al-Qaeda leader of Libyan origin, Abu Yahya al-Libi, released a statement backing the insurrection a week ago, while Yusuf Qaradawi, the Qatar-based, Muslim Brotherhood-linked theologian issued a fatwa authorising Col Gaddafi’s militaryentourage to assassinate him.

Our government can aid the people who are responsible for the largest attack on American soil, 9/11, that took 3,000 lives and caused Americans to lose their basic rights as the government passed heinous laws (Patriot Act, AUMF, NDAA) to keep us safe, but Bradley Manning, a whistleblower exposing US corruption, will be charged with “aiding the enemy,” a capital offense, along with 21 other charges that will earn him a life sentence.  The prosecution said they would not pursue the death penalty.

Manning is charged with leaking hundreds of thousands of US government cables and field reports from Iraq and Afghanistan to WikiLeaks in 2010, in the largest leak of classified documents in American history.

Comparing Manning’s actions to that of a soldier speaking to a major newspaper, he argued that without an intent to provide information to the enemy, Manning’s actions constituted at most negligence.

The ruling was another blow for Manning, who made several appeals over three days of pretrial hearings this week to reduce or dismiss all 22 charges against him. Those motions were all rejected.

As if that isn’t enough, our government has been working with MEK , a terrorist organization responsible for the deaths of U.S. civilians and military personnel, for years.

Early 2000: MEK Commander Detained by INS; Ashcroft Intervenes

US Immigration and Naturalization Services (INS) agents arrest Mahnaz Samadi, a leading spokeswoman for the National Council of Resistance, at the Canadian border because several years earlier, when she was seeking political asylum in the US, she had not disclosed her past “terrorist” ties as an MEK “military commander” or the fact that she had trained in an MEK camp that was located in Iraq. Hearing about the case from his constituents, Missouri Senator John Ashcroft comes to the rescue and writes a letter on May 10, 2000 to Attorney General Janet Reno opposing Samadi’s arrest. In his letter, he calls her a “highly regarded human-rights activist.” [Newsweek, 9/26/2002; Slate, 3/21/2003; US Department of State, 4/30/2003]

The Asia Times reports that Osama bin Laden has sought refuge in Iran and is being sheltered by members of the Mujahedeen-e Khalq (MEK). The report—citing Pakistani jihadi who fought in Afghanistan, journalists, and intelligence sources—says bin Laden crossed into Iran from Afghanistan around the time of the surrender of Kandahar (see November 25, 2001). [Asia Times, 12/19/2001] This report will later be shown to wildly clash with more reliable evidence placing bin Laden in Tora Bora near the Afghanistan-Pakistan border at this time instead.

The conservative National Review publishes an op-ed article by Sam Dealy titled “A Very, Very Bad Bunch,” commenting on the Iranian opposition group known as People’s Mujahedeen of Iran (MEK) and “its surprising American friends.” Dealy’s piece is an attack on Congresspersons who support the MEK despite the exile group’s past history of anti-Americanism (see 1970s and November 4, 1979-January 20, 1981). “How has a terrorist group managed to win the support of mainstream US politicians?” he asks. “Simple: Its political representatives in the US have worked hard to repackage the group as a legitimate dissident organization fighting for democracy in Iran—by whitewashing its record and duping our leaders.” Dealy emphasizes that the group’s initial ideological underpinning had been influenced by the likes of Marx, Ho Chi Minh, and Che Guevara, whose ideas the MEK attempted to apply to Shiite society. [National Review, 3/25/2002]

Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) defends her support for the Mujahedeen-e Khalq (MEK) (see October 2002), a militant Iranian opposition group that has been included in the US State Department’s list of foreign terrorist organizations since 1997 (see 1997). “This group loves the United States” and they are “assisting us in the war on terrorism; they’re pro-US,” she says. “This group has not been fighting against the US. It’s simply not true.” Regarding the group’s past history, which has included lethal attacks against US citizens, collusion with Saddam Hussein, and terrorist attacks against Iran, she says that they are “past history,” asserting that they have “no bearing on what is going on right now in the field.” Ros-Lehtinen further says that there is “wide support” in Congress for the group and that the MEK will be “one of the leading groups in establishing a secular government in Iran.” Ros-Lehtinen currently chairs the House International Relations Committee’s Central Asia and Middle East Subcommittee. [Hill, 4/8/2003]

The US Department of State releases its annual “Patterns of Global Terrorism” report. Included in its list of terrorist organizations is the Mujahedeen-e Khalq (MEK), an Iranian opposition group in Iraq that has offices in Washington, DC. The report notes that the MEK helped Saddam Hussein during Iraq’s war with Iran and assisted the dictator in suppressing the Shia uprisings in southern Iraq and the Kurdish uprisings in the north after the first Gulf War. [US Department of State, 4/30/2003] During a press briefing that coincides with the release of the report, US Ambassador Cofer Black, Coordinator for Counterterrorism in the US State Department, is asked to explain why the US has permitted MEK to have an office in Washington. “The Secretary has recommended that the president determine that the laws that apply to countries that support terrorism no longer apply to Iraq,” Black explains. “The president’s determination to provide greater flexibility in permitting certain types of trade with and assistance to Iraq; thus, we can treat Iraq like any other country not on the terrorist list.” He insists that the “United States Government does not negotiate with terrorists,” but contends that MEK “is a pretty special group” and that the US considers the agreement as a “prelude to the group’s surrender.” [US Department of State, 4/30/2003]

The US-appointed Iraq Governing Council orders the Mujahedeen-e Khalq (MEK) to leave Iraq by the end of year citing its “black history” in Iraq as a “terrorist organization,” a reference to the militant organization’s long history of working with Saddam Hussein (see 1991 and December 2003). But Pentagon officials do not want the MEK to leave Iraq, as they are considering plans to use the group against Iran. [Christian Science Monitor, 12/31/2003]
