Actually the intelligence agency has FAILED on many parts when it comes to keeping us safe. The underwear bomber guy was caught by a passenger on the
plane who saw something suspicious, and I think the same thing goes for another attempted attack.
See, the problem here is that you listened to the Media, which acted as stenographers for the intelligence services PR rep. The CIA didn't actually
FAIL -- they are the ones who made sure he was on the plane!
The following shows a lot of Bush/Media/CIA connections, but it holds true for Obama's administration, since there is about a 90% overlap in
>> Here's just a really great example of what I'm talking about:
Kind of like how the Underwear Bomber got on the airplane and we were told that he didn't have a passport. And then we hear the State Department
ASKED that his passport be pulled, but the intelligence services with BushCo cronies said he was part of a larger investigation and to let him go on
Then, all the disinfo was quickly spewing from much of the press;
>> Note that it was NOT the state department that let him on that plane -- it was EXPLICITLY, the CIA.
A January 27 hearing of the House Committee on Homeland Security established that US intelligence agencies stopped the State Department from revoking
the US visa of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. The Nigerian student, whom US officials suspected of being affiliated with the Yemeni terrorist group Al
Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, attempted to set off a bomb on Northwest Flight 253 into Detroit on Christmas Day. Revocation of Abdulmutallab’s
visa would have prevented him from boarding the airplane.
The "kid prank" break in of Senator Mary Landrieu's office by some "Fox News" staff, who were also on the hit piece for ACORN. Identified as
James O’Keefe, Stan Dai, Robert Flanagan and Joseph Basel, all in their 20s, the men are known for their GOP--especially to Senator David Vitter and
Fox News. O’Keefe gained notoriety last year for making undercover videos of the liberal community-organizing group ACORN -- which APPEARED to be a
pimp needing financial advice when they edited the tape, which isn't really a crime but editing can do a lot; www.bradblog.com...
independent investigations into ACORN showed no wrong-doing and that's documented; www.proskauer.com...
"James O'Keefe never actually wore his ridiculous pimp costume into those ACORN offices on those doctored and illegally recorded video tapes, right?
But, rather, he was filmed outside of the offices wearing his get-up, while appearing as the conservatively dressed boyfriend of a hooker trying to
escape an abusive pimp when the cameras were rolling inside the offices. That's just one of many deceptions O'Keefe carried out.
But anyway, that's the REASON they are saying, Landrieu is being bugged -- to defend Liberty and all from the tyranny of ACORN providing financial
planning advice to poor people.
Is it a coincidence, that she is chairperson of the House Committee investigating the intelligence failures regarding the underwear bomber?
Only, why is there such a connection between the CIA, Israel and Fox News? Why are the NeoCons like Rove, the PNAC, and all -- so affiliated as well?
Do you think they are working together, or does Fox usually bug offices and hire the CIA so that they can get a good second job?
Dai has been an undergraduate fellow with the Washington-based national security think tank Foundation for the Defense of the Democracies (FDD),
according to his College Leadership Program award biography at the Phillips Foundation -- as Lindsay Beyerstein first reported.
FDD claims that it's partly funded by the US State Department. Its Leadership Council and Board of Advisers comprise many high-profile conservative
politicians and public figures -- including former House speaker Newt Gingrich, Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-CT), Weekly Standard editor William Kristol,
Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA),...
