After considering it from other angles, my latest conclusion is it's a terrorist attack involving a cell that utilizes social media and communities
like this one are now being played. They are using America's love of Freedom of Speech against it. I would love your thoughts, please.
In an effort to get to the bottom of why this whole incident hasn't felt quite genuine, tonight I was trawling through Jamar's friends accounts on
Twitter. One in particular made me starting thinking. The account is @xXjungaXx. This person claims Jamar was akin to a brother and they'd known each
other all their lives. He is, of course, defending Jamar. But yesterday he retweeted a tweet of Jamar's from November last year, which does sound
ominous in light of the bombings, and it was "those who refuse to apologise will be sorry one day." Why would an alleged friend retweet that given the
ETA: this person said about two hours ago that he's not going to post about Jamar anymore. Why stop now, buddy? Is it getting a little too warm for
you? If you want to read more of his tweets I have cut and pasted some and they are in another post - search my posts to find it.
The day after the bombings, before Jamar was a suspect, this person stated the bombing was a false flag and provided a link to a video at Inforwars.
He then said something like "I only present the video, now it up to you whether to believe it or not." He also retweeted Jamar saying "people are
conditioned by the media." His friend agreed and said it was easy to manipulate people's minds during a crisis when everyone is asking the question
This person comes across as somewhat authoritative and almost disdainful of the people showing support for his defence of Jamar, and there were
thousands who are now following his account and many showing their support. He tweets that the FBI have visited him and "it's all good."
My conspiracy theory runs thus:
The sleeper cell was located in Watertown and made up of Islamic fundamentalists including Jamar and his brother. This cell realises the power the
media has in shaping opinion and has hatched a plan to use it to their own ends.
They choose an event that they know will be well covered by the media. Jamar and his brother plant their bombs and leave.
Other members of the cell are creating content for social media (eg. Jahar's letter to his father on his Facebook) and probably taking part in
discussions on conspiracy websites, they upload images to 4Chan and other "conspiracy" sites, trying to confuse and put doubt into people's minds
about what happened, pointing to the government as the culprits. They have also become a presence on Twitter, supporting their 'friend's' innocence
and urging other to view the videos and photographs and joining them in their campaign. Every single supporter that has joined is another piece of
ammunition being used against the US government. They must be laughing their asses off. And some of the American supporters are being incredibly
sycophantic and offering them solace I don't believe they deserve ie: "You are sooo brave standing up for your friend. You must really love him"
The usual suspects (Alex Jones for eg.) fall into line, based on the already created doubt, as well as conspiracy-centric websites but this time,
strangely, it creates more doubt than usual and a wider audience not usually involved in conspiracy theory are being drawn in, even MSM is doing
articles on it - something new!
Jamar's friends are defending him loudly and people are finding sympathy for him because the photos being circulated show a soft-faced, gentle looking
guy that looks like any 19 year-old you'd find attending you local university, ie. someone you can relate to as opposed to a turbaned Islamic
fundamentalist. He was the cell's patsy and they were hoping he'd be killed so they (and their online supporters) could martyr him. This is what his
father meant when he said all hell would break loose if he was killed.
On the night of the chase in Watertown there was one scanner that I watched/listened to the whole time and seemed to be the only one not able to be
taken offline at various points because it was a video camera trained on a physical scanner and not a digitally embedded scanner (IT gurus - clarify
if this would make a difference, please).
Perhaps one of the cell was responsible for providing this stream (the Ustream one), knowing there was a convoluted plan for other members of the cell
to lead the authorities on a merry chase that incorporated other cell members decoying police up blind alleys, so to speak, and that the resulting
confusion would all be broadcast on the scanner confusing the hell out of the people listening in (apologies to the person responsible if this is NOT
THAT would explain why Jamar and his brother were so obvious in their visit to the gas station and 7-11 or whatever it was and why the witness they
car jacked said they told her they were the bombers. The cell wanted people's attentions drawn to the chase that was about to begin so they could
implement the second phase of their strategy, to use social media to confuse the heck out of us. It would also explain how one 19 year-old kid could
elude 9000 LEOs for 12 hours or whatever it was.
What if the actual attack is two fold: one physical - to kill, maim and terrorize, and the other is for the "hearts and minds" of US citizens with the
objective being to turn Americans against their own government?
This is the only thing that makes sense to me so far and I've tried on various theories. This is what I'm sticking with and if someone wants to poke
holes, please do as I have an open mind.
