To me this has all the hallmarks of the false flag.

Doesn't quite add up.
Stories don't seem to quite match.
Yemen denies the relevant flights
Obama talks of a bomb.
UK says it hasn't determined if it was a bomb.
Obama IMMEDIATELY rolls out Al Qaeda - with no evidence to support his thesis. (9/11?)
They have been wanting to invade Yemen for a long time.

etc, etc.

I am totally, absolutely not convinced by their conspiracy claim.

The US and UK are investigating the extent of a terror threat after explosive material was found in packages on two cargo planes bound for the US from Yemen on Friday. The two packages - one found in the UK, the other in Dubai - were addressed to Jewish synagogues in the Chicago area. President Barack Obama said the devices were a "credible terrorist threat".


Sorry I couldn't see this anywhere.... apologies if I have duplicated.

OP, I have to say the title of your thread is misleading. It clearly states in the article you refer to that

"UK Home Secretary Theresa May said experts were trying to establish whether the package found in Britain was "a viable explosive device".

They have found explosive material - THEY HAVE NOT FOUND A BOMB.

I fear there might be some serious price increases ahead in the name of security maybe restrictions on what can be sent by airmail.

Yeah, I was thinking of the same thing especially with Christmas comming.

My advice would to be wary of presants with a Yemen postmark!

Yeah exactly! who the hell would accept or open a present/gift/packages from Yemen anyway?

That's the suspicious part in this story IMO - why the packages were addressed to Jewish synagogues in the Chicago area.

It' sounds a little bit all too convenient and fishy to me!

There’s allot of things about this plot that don’t add up. Apparently Yemen are saying that the flights didn’t come from there country, if this is true then it means that it couldn’t have been AQIM and both the British and American governments are telling lies. On the other hand however the telegraph are running with a interesting story about how it was a MI6 officer who triggered the alert where as other sources are claiming that it was Saudi-Arabia who tipped off the security services, but then why would they be the ones with the Intel surly this must have came out of the Yemen.

Then we have the timings this started to unfold Thursday night yet we didn’t find out until about 1600 hours GMT on the Friday. Then the two COBRA meetings i know it happens after a terror alert but I got the feeling that COBRA didn’t really know what was going on.

It also turns out that NORAD sent two F-16’s to escort a passenger jet, yet the official line in the UK was that this threat was focused on freight flights. Also found it a bit suspicious this happening the day after BA had a row with America over air port security, a little bit too convenient.

In short everything still seems very confused, my head is spinning and I think that the security services were caught with their pants down and got very lucky.

The devices have now been identified as viable, consisting of PETN and a mobile phone detonator. Current speculation by UK EOD teams is that the devices were rigged to detonate in flight to take down the aircraft. The fact that a mobile was used would explain why the plane didn't detonate in mid air. There aren't many phone re-broadcasting stations 6 miles up. The Int leading to the finds was from Saudi.

Believe it or not the majority of air cargo doesn't undergo even the most basic of security checks or scans. Hard to believe when you consider the farting about that passengers have to go through to get on a flight. The only reason that these devices were found was due to an int source in the middle east identifying the risk. It was only when this int was acted upon that the devices were found.

This has highlighted a massive opening in the possible air-transport of potentially lethal devices. If this had detonated above an urban population centre the death toll could have been in the triple figures.

There's a newer more complete updated story on this. Unfortunately, the mainstream media (BIG name mainstream) contains material that is against ATS rules.

BUT, what's not against the rules to tell is that the Dubai inspectors found the first one and diffused it.

The inspectors in England where the second printer was had actually MISSED identifying it as a bomb and gave it a pass on the inspection.

Then, Dubai told them how to find it and they went back and re-checked a second time.

It was over three hours past detonation time. The reason the one in England didn't blowup on time is because during the first inspection, the English inspectors ACCIDENTLY disconnected the timer, unknowingly.

Those two WERE viable bombs, crisis averted. One diffused intentionally in Abu Dubai, the other diffused accidentally.
