If you unfamiliar with the "attempted terrorist attack" on Christmas Day in Detroit, you might want to search "Detroit Terrorist Cover" on ATS and
read a few articles. It should provide you with some appropriate back story for this event and this post, should you be unaware of the story, I'll
paraphrase here, please visit links for more info.
Basically, as I understand it, it went down like this:
A young man's father started noticing his son was taking an interest in extremist muslim groups and behaviour.
The young man went to Yemen.
The father contacted authorities and said, "My son is in Yemen, being trained by terrorists."
The authorities said, "thank you." and not much else.
The young man was "allowed" on an American bound plane without a passport with the help of a "well dressed Indian man" (How this works is beyond
me...) The Indian man did not get on board.
The young man had a pouch of powder strapped to his leg and a syringe.
It was meant to be a big boom, but for some reason was only a sizzle and smoke.
The young man was tackled by those onboard and then taken into custody in Detroit.
The FBI questioned everyone on board the plane and made one other arrest from the passenger list. (Nobody is talking about that, except one of the
Some rumors I've heard...
1.) The amount and type of explosive used wouldn't have had the desired effect. It was not enough to blow a hole in the plane.
2.) Webster Tarpley
For those of you that don't know, Webster Tarpley is a conspiratorial writer. He pops up in the usual circles ATS members travel in, and if you
don't know who he is, you will eventually. (I'm not saying he's good/bad, right/wrong.)
Now, Tarpley went on RussiaToday or RT as it is known on youtube and "spilled the beans" on this whole story. View it here...
RT, in and of itself, is a very interesting phenomenon, and I'm not at all sure of it's purpose, legitimacy or earnestness. (Which is much the same
way I feel about Tarpley) However, I think in this case, it's very likely that Tarpley hit the nail on the head. At this point, if you havent already
seen it, click the link above this paragraph, view it, then come back and finish my article.
It seems to me, like it does, I'm sure, to most here that this whole thing is a setup. Even if you dismiss the "well dressed Indian," the "failure
of the mission," and Webster Tarpley, it's obvious the reason this event occurred was so that the US gov could move on Yemen. (We know this is true
because Obama said he would.) There are no accidents with this kind of thing.
Now the ease with which this event took place makes it seem as if a conspiracy has occurred.
I've already begun reading some posts here about how this was all done to put the new "naked scanners" in airports. This may happen, but I doubt
that this is the reason why. I'm actually not concerned with the "why" of this event, I think the "why" is obvious, I think, siding with Tarpley
on this one, even the "who" is obvious. (I do hope that this finally squashes any lingering clutches for "change" or "hope" from the Obama
administration. In my opinion, this event and Obama's reaction to it, proves only his acting ability. Bush, Obama, Democrat, Republican, it doesn't
matter. TPTB haven't changed since before they killed JFK.) (But that's a whole 'nother thread.)
What does interest me, and what was the impetus for the questions I'm about to pose, came from watching CNN on December 27. There was the usual
speculatory pieces from so-called experts and quite alot of talk about the "systemic failure" that led to this incident. In particular I saw one
reporter, (sorry I can't remember who,) throw up his hands in disbelief and literally cry out, "How could the CIA let this happen?"
I put my head in my hands and laughed. Not the HAHA kind of laugh, but the "Oh my god you people are driving me nuts!" kind of laugh. Of course, the
reporter meant, "How did the CIA let this happen?" in a nuts and bolts kind of way, not the moral take of, "How dare the CIA let this happen."
What was important is, CNN actively persued this line for at least several hours. "The CIA let this happen." "The CIA failed." "The system
Now, I've been around the block a couple times, I've studied this stuff probably as much as some of you and more than most. It's not as if I'm
privy to information that you are not, but I needn't be. When the MSM is telling me that TPTB are failing and the price of that failing is my death,
I'm going to do something to protect myself. (This isn't a threat, this is an expected reaction.)And knowing what I do about, for instance, the CIA,
the Whitehouse, Americans, Psychology and Social Engineering, I think that we are slowly being set up to lose faith in TPTB. I think this loss of
faith will lead to some sort of revolt. The problem is, it's TPTB that are selling it. So the first question for YOU becomes:
1.) Why are we being set up to lose faith in TPTB?
I've got some answers of my own, but I want to hear yours.
Now, I've recently had this discussion with a friend of mine who works in Finances, he reminded me that it's not the CIA, the Whitehouse, Obama or
the government in general that is in charge. It's big business. While I agree with this for the most part, it doesn't change my question at it's
heart, just who we might point our fingers at. It is different enough of a scenario to warrant a seperate question:
2.) Why would big business want us to lose faith in TPTB?
I'd also like to know what people think of the credibility of RT and Tarpley.
How does Tarpley get away with this kind of stuff? How is he not arrested for treason? Is he a plant?
Please tell me your thoughts.
U2U me if you'd care to leave them private.
I'll put up my own answers after I'm sure any chance of influence has vanished.
