I am not one that sees conspiracies everywhere, but I do like a good
Convenience Theory. Like the one that is coming together out of the
botched terror attempt by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab to blow up an
airliner in Detroit just as it was arriving.

For the last couple
of months Saudi Arabia has been bombarding Yemen with fighter jets.
Just recently the US sent cruise missles into Yemen in a reported attempt to hit Al Qaeda sites. Also, US fighter jets joined the attacks on Yemen. In return, Al Qaeda reportedly issued a warning that it would avenge US raids.

Now
it appears that the Detroit bound Airline Terrorist Suspect from
Nigeria has supposed links to Yemen. Or at least the suspect is supposedly saying his bomb was made in Yemen.

Well
just when America needs a good excuse to attack Yemen, conveniently we
have one. Now never mind that we have initiated the US and Saudi
attacks before this recent terror attempt. Just keep in mind that the
Nigerian is a Yemeni terrorist.

Some are beginning to question how a No Fly list that bans Cat Stevens and a guy that was writing a critical book on the CIA could miss this 'Nigerian/Yemeni' terrorist. Reports
are that the terror suspect was on a Watch List and his dad reported to
the US Embassy in Nigeria that his son (the future terrorist) was
possibly dangerous.

Also some are a bit concerned that this Watch List Detroit Terrorist Bomber was allowed to get on the plane with explosives strapped to his body.

Something
smells of a needed convenient Incident to help promote the attacks on
Yemen and the expansion of our terrorist war there.

As luck
would have it, and conveniently, Congresspersons are calling for a
needed expansion of the terror wars to include Yemen. One of the
clearest voices for a greater expansion of the terror war is coming
from the noted corporate sellout (aren't they all?) Connecticut Senator
Joe Lieberman.

Lieberman warns
on Fox News,"Somebody in our government said to me in Sana'a, the
capital of Yemen, Iraq was yesterday's war. Afghanistan is today's war.
If we don't act preemptively, Yemen will be tomorrow's war. That's the
danger we face."

It appears that, according to Lieberman, the
government was already getting ready for an expansion of the War on
Terror to include Yemen. But the recent bombings of Yemen by the United
States proves that point.

Still there is one other point I want
to mention regarding my Convenience Theory of the Nigerian/Yemeni
airliner bombing incident.

Parts of the Patriot Act are due to expire this New Years Eve.

Now talk about a real convenience.

Just
as controversial aspects of the Patriot Act are expiring, and there is
not a lot of political will to extend them, you get a real terrorist
attempt with links to Yemen.

How convenient!

At this
point we can only say that the attempted terror attack in Detroit
appears a bit too convenient. It comes at a convenient time for those
in the government that want to extend the War on Terror abroad and the
Technological Police State here at home.
