Computer Monitor Causes Scare At Newark Airport

NEW YORK (1010 WINS / WCBS 880 / CBS 2 / AP) — A computer monitor that was checked as baggage caused a security scare Monday morning at Newark Liberty International Airport, prompting officials to shut down part of a terminal for about an hour as a precaution.

Another terror hype, only to later be retracted. I'm growing tired of seeing this on MSM, and would be incredibly happy if they would investigate the news before they get behind the bullhorn.

If we are to believe that this is the natural occurrence of things, what life can we ever expect to live? Who are the terrorists now?

Hey - it's all about "Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Terrorist" now, don't you know?
Well I'm not sure about those first 2....

I am posting this to show that most of our 'Terror Alerts' are nothing more than either exercises, drills, false. That the US is behind the act more often than it is not, and that the MSM is the first to parrot this in order to induce fear.

Germany Bomb Plot Foiled; Suspected Suitcase Bomb Intercepted


BERLIN (AFP) -- A suspected bomb in a suitcase checked in on a German-bound plane was intercepted in Namibia, Germany's Federal Crime Office (BKA) said Thursday, one day after Berlin raised its terror alert level.

Later it was not front page news, by any means, that the 'suspected bomb' was from an unnamed US firm, still nameless to this day. That the bomb was real, but missing vital elements that would have allowed it to be used to blow anything up. Proof follows:

Fake bomb aboard German passenger jet 'was made by U.S. firm to test airport security'

A German government minister has today revealed that a fake bomb found on an Air Berlin flight in Namibia was manufactured in the U.S. to test airport security.

It was not yet clear who had planted 'test suitcase', said German interior minister Thomas de Maziere, but the one fact they had established was that the device had been manufactured by a U.S. company that specialises in alarm systems.

At no time were passengers' lives in danger.
Mr de Maziere said: 'This company is a manufacturer of alarm and detection systems and these real test suitcases are built to test security measures.'

Of course, that leads us to the Yemen bomb plot. The MSM trumpeted that it was the act of a woman from Yemen, who even used her real name and address to mail the printer cartridges.

Yemenis arrested; al Qaeda bomber eyed in mail plot

SAN'A, Yemen (AP) — Yemeni police on Saturday arrested a woman and detained her mother in connection with mailing a pair of bombs powerful enough to take down airplanes, officials said as details emerged about a terrorist plot aimed at the United States that exploited security gaps in the worldwide shipping system.

A Yemeni officials said the younger woman was a computer engineering student.

Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh told reporters that the United States and United Arab Emirates had provided intelligence that helped identify the younger woman, who was suspected of mailing the packages.

Investigators on Sunday were hunting Yemen for more suspects tied to al Qaeda, and several U.S. officials identified the terrorist group's top explosives expert in Yemen as the most likely bombmaker.

Fairly convincing, correct? Incorrect.

Yemen Releases Female Suspect in Mail Bombing Case

Authorities in Yemen have released the female computer engineering student from custody that they suspected of mailing explosive packages, Fox News confirms.

Yemeni authorities concluded this was a case of stolen identity by an individual who knew the detained suspect's name, address and telephone number.

The suspect has been fully cooperating with the investigation, authorities say.

Yemen will not allow the female suspect to leave the country at this time.

It goes on further to say:

"It's not over, and more arrests will take place as early as the next couple of days. We have different suspects in mind and we will further investigate them," the official said.

Did you ever hear about that happening? Of course, not. Which brings us to a more recent event, the Christmas Day Bomber.

Alleged Christmas Tree Bomber Mohamed Osman Mohamud Heads to Court

A 19-year-old Somali American accused of attempting to set off a car bomb at an Oregon Christmas tree lighting is expected to appear in federal court today, authorities said.

According to undercover FBI agents, Mohamed Osman Mohamud was the target of a six-month FBI sting in which he allegedly believed he was detonating a bomb inside a parked van near Portland's Pioneer Courthouse Square Friday night.

I'm sorry, but isn't that entrapment? This isn't new of course, as I've been researching FOIA requests and preparing to issue my own into the FBI's infiltration of groups ranging from the KKK to Second Amendment Rights Groups. What I'm discovering is very disturbing. In my personal opinion, I am seeing a connection between the desire to 'catch a criminal' and pushing the boundries of legality to do it. More or less, in order to make the big arrest, there is the possibility of doing illegal things and inciting the very violence or behavior a person or group is arrested for. Scary indeed.
