Financial terrorism suspected in 2008 economic crash


Evidence outlined in a Pentagon contractor report suggests that financial subversion carried out by unknown parties, such as terrorists or hostile nations, contributed to the 2008 economic crash by covertly using vulnerabilities in the U.S. financial system.

The unclassified 2009 report “Economic Warfare: Risks and Responses” by financial analyst Kevin D. Freeman, a copy of which was obtained by The Washington Times, states that “a three-phased attack was planned and is in the process against the United States economy.”

While economic analysts and a final report from the federal government's Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission blame the crash on such economic factors as high-risk mortgage lending practices and poor federal regulation and supervision, the Pentagon contractor adds a new element: “outside forces,” a factor the commission did not examine.

“There is sufficient justification to question whether outside forces triggered, capitalized upon or magnified the economic difficulties of 2008,” the report says, explaining that those domestic economic factors would have caused a “normal downturn” but not the “near collapse” of the global economic system that took place.

I thought it was pretty much clear already that this is being engineered by the banks for reasons that are still a bit murky but probably have something to do with greed and lust for power.

Well it was only a matter of time. I know its a lot easier to cause mayhem by hitting us financially than militarily, especially when we are trillions of dollars in debt. A while back some of the terrorist groups said they want the US to die by a thousand cuts, referring to causing economic damage instead of military.

Coupled with the most recent hacking of US financial and economic systems, its getting intresting to see wats going to happen and if we can protect ourselves from it.

There is an article out today talking about Russia and their renewed concerns over Chinese buildup in the region. Russia is reinvesting in their Eastern defense to counter China, and have real fears now that China will want parts of Siberia because of the resources.

The next war wont be with guns and tanks, but computers.
