Operation Blackjack... Connecting the dots again...

We all know how everyone last year were hooked to this "Operation Blackjack" slides that appeared on the website of Daily Telegraph. Decoding the various sets of letters and numbers, interpreting the obscure pictures on the secret web site, predicting the dates for the "event" was an almost regular activity. This continued till the date that was mentioned in the slides and then this phenomenon was relegated to internet archives. Now I am making this very clear that this is not a "prediction with a date" thread but is rather a humble attempt to connect the possible dots and look at the picture in a holistic manner.

1. Villains in the act.

Let us take a look at the characters described in the above slide. The threat from so called "Islamic extremists" has been drummed up by the MSM a lot recently, especially after the failed Christmas Day bombing and the Times Square plot. However, there are two other "threats" that are getting much attention from the MSM lately, albeit in a negative way. Does anyone remember the attention that Joe Stack and Bedell got in the MSM? They were portrayed as conspiracy nuts who believed that 9/11 was an inside job. The U.S administration has increased the propaganda about the "domestic threat for terrorism". So I think we can say that the villains in the form of "home grown extremists and christian doomsday cultists (Conspiracy theorists ?) " are ready.

P.S: Here is a initial statement of Mayor Bloomberg after the failed Times Square plot

Between reassuring viewers at home that New York was safe and praising the city’s resilient spirit, Bloomberg wondered aloud if the culprit behind the Times Square car bomb was “a mentally deranged person or somebody with a political agenda that doesn’t like the health-care bill or something.”

Mayor Bloomberg

2. Fear Factor

President Obama called an unprecedented meeting of world leaders for a nuclear security summit in Washington DC in April 2010. The overriding agenda of this summit was to address the threat posed by terrorist organizations with nuclear weapons. Here is an excerpt of Obama's speech at the summit:

Nuclear materials that could be sold or stolen and fashioned into a nuclear weapon exist in dozens of nations. Just the smallest amount of plutonium -- about the size of an apple -- could kill and injure hundreds of thousands of innocent people. Terrorist networks such as al Qaeda have tried to acquire the material for a nuclear weapon, and if they ever succeeded, they would surely use it. Were they to do so, it would be a catastrophe for the world -- causing extraordinary loss of life, and striking a major blow to global peace and stability.

In short, it is increasingly clear that the danger of nuclear terrorism is one of the greatest threats to global security -- to our collective security.

Council on Foreign relations

In addition to that, "concerns" are being raised in the MSM over the Iranian nuclear program and the threat of Pakistani nuclear arsenal falling into the hands of Taliban through rogue elements in the Pakistani military establishment.

3. Some esoteric oddities

Here is an earlier slide of Operation Blackjack in which Gordon Brown as a PM is shown as addressing the parliament regarding the threat:

Following is the latest version of the slides in which Cameron is portrayed as the British PM who is addressing the parliament regarding the threat:

Cameron as a PM

It was known all along that 2010, and not 2009 is the election year for Britain.
Latest Update: Britain's David Cameron becomes PM

4. Synchronicity or predictive programming ?

There has been speculations in some circles that the MSM is used by the TPTB to condition the masses before any particular "event". There are some examples such as the Lone Gunman episode and the Simpson comic strip that came up before 9/11. Now, look at the words used by the MSM lately:

Times Square suspect is charged over ‘weapon of mass destruction’

EU Turns to 'Nuclear Option' to Halt Euro Speculation

Here is a thread that talks about a company that is a subcontractor for the NLE 2010 exercise and is an expert in creating web based games for research, analysis and training.

National Level Exercise 2010,Operation Blackjack

The company described in the aforementioned link has already created a similar web based game called SCUDHunt for DARPA . The objective of the game was to find the 3 hidden SCUD launchers. The distributed players of the game required to share information and work together to do well.

For all the "dot connectors", here is a latest and rather obscure jackblack12 website:

Nothing much to see in the above website except for an image and two dates, 09/09/09 and June 22 2010

Take it with a pinch (or handful) of salt

Thanks for bringing this up again. While I'm not going to take the story alone as evidence of a looming large-scale attack, I'm not going to casually dismiss it either. I never understood why everyone thought that last year, after June 22 came and went, that the story was proven a hoax. The original slideshow mentions June 22, but never gave a year. The website jackblack12 specifically mentions 2010. So, if/when THIS June 22 comes around with no incident, I'll be glad to forget about it.

I agree that a set of slides on a newspaper website could not be taken as a sole means of evidence. However, with all the scare tactics that are going on lately, from "failed" terror plots to cordoning of some blocks of city every other day over "suspicious" packages and abandoned cars, I think that TPTB might be up to something. Also, the theme of this year's NLE 2010 drills is the simulation of nuclear device detonation.

Here is a post that talks about the changing of the slide that shows Britain's PM addressing the parliament. Apparently, the slide depicting Brown as the PM was changed to that of Cameron as a PM in January of this year.

The incident of the changed slide actually happened on 20th June 2009. It is mentioned in this post

Having read your other threads, about the NLE 2010 and the simulation of a Nuclear device being exploded, Blackjack is appearing even more relevant than before. There is so much 'nuclear' related news coverage at the moment, Iran, disarmament etc. - it makes me feel uneasy. Hope nothing comes of it but I am reluctant to take my eye off the ball...

reply to post by elixirsoo

Thanks, when operation blackjack came out last year, I was intrigued but then I thought that perhaps this might be a prank played by some lone individual. Apart from that, there was no media conditioning at that time for the sheeple. This year, there was this summit in April to address the issue of nuclear terrorism. Then a series of "failed plots" right from christmas day bomber to Times square.

I've always been interested in the slight and suptle changes that have taken place.. and interestingly Cameron takes his place in the House of Comons as PM today..

The few people that are keeping track of the changes do not bring enough additional revenue to the Telegraph in the form of advertising as all discussions on the topic takes place on sites like ATS. If the Telegraph had a space to discuss this, then I would assume it was a revenue generating idea.

So what is in it for them? why the changes?

More fear mongering...

Perhaps to get us climatised to this level of doom..

I'm really not sure...

I also noticed the year issue, but somewhere there WAS a reference to 2010.

The updating of the slides is just plain eery, that alone is reason to dismiss it as "art" or "fiction". You don't find an artist making changes to what is already on display?

It was a game, is a game. It's still current, relevant, and scary that someone would be playing like this. The creator is a Jesuit, and they would definitely have approval for this kind of "stunt".

Keep watching...

If it were a lone individual who had created a website and then made it go viral by posting the URL on a conspiracy forum, then we could have speculated that he/she wanted to make some quick buck out of ad revenues or just wanted to have some fun by watching conspiracy theorists on a wild goose hunt. However, the had no google ads to make that quick buck. The URL of this web site was not made viral by posting it openly, but was rather obfuscated in one of the slides that was eventually figured out by an individual. The fact that the Telegraph allowed such a provocative material to be posted on their website proves that they approved of such material. There has to be a certain degree of government collusion and the Telegraph was just a means for the TPTB to do the job of data mining or profiling. Operation BlackJack is quite similar to the SCUDHunt exercise that was done by U.S government contractor some years back.
