Why does the FBI
orchestrate fake terror plots?
The latest one snared
Osman Mohamud, a Somali-American teenager in Portland, Oregon. The Associated
Press report by William Mall and Nedra Pickler (11-27-10) is headlined in Yahoo
News: "Somali-born teen plotted car-bombing in Oregon."
This is a misleading
headline as the report makes it clear
that it was a plot orchestrated by federal
agents. Two sentences into the news report we have this: "The bomb was an
elaborate fake supplied by the [FBI] agents and the public was never in danger,
The teenager was supplied
with a fake bomb and a fake detonator.
Three sentences later, the
reporters contradict the quoted authorities with a quote from Arthur Balizan,
special agent in charge of the FBI in Oregon: "The threat was very
The reporters then
contradict Balizan: "White House spokesman Nick Shapiro said Saturday that
president Barack Obama was aware of the FBI operation before Friday's arrest.
Shapiro said Obama was assured that the FBI was in full control of the operation
and that the public was not in danger."
Then Shapiro contradicts
himself by declaring: "The events of the past 24 hours underscore the necessity
of remaining vigilant against terrorism here and abroad."

The story arrives at its
Kafka highpoint when President Obama thanks the FBI for its diligence in saving
us from the fake plot the FBI had fabricated.
After vacillating between
whether they are reporting a real plot or an orchestrated one, the reporters
finally come down on the side of orchestration. Documents released by US
Attorney Dwight Holton "show the sting operation began in June." Obviously, the
targeted Portland teenager was not hot to trot. The FBI had to work on him for
six months. The reporters compare "the Portland sting" to the recent arrest in
Virginia of Faroque Ahmed who was ensnared in a "bombing plot that was a ruse
conducted over the past six months by federal officials."
Think about this. The FBI
did a year's work in order to convince two people to participate in fake
If you are not too bright
and some tough looking guys accost you and tell you that they are Al Qaeda and
expect your help in a terrorist operation, you might be afraid to say no, or you
might be thrilled to be part of a blowback against an American population that
is indifferent to their government's slaughter of people of your ethnicity in
your country of origin. Whichever way it falls, it is unlikely the ensnared
persons would ever have done anything beyond talk had the FBI not organized them
into action. In other cases the FBI entices people with money
to participate in its fake plots.
Since 9/11, the only
domestic "terrorist plot" that I recall that was not obviously organized by the
FBI is the "Times Square plot" to which Faisal Shahzad pleaded guilty to trying
to set off a car bomb in Manhattan. This plot, too, is suspicious. One would
think that a real terrorist would have a real bomb, not a smoke
In the May 19, 2009,
online site, sott.net
(reprinted Nov. 27, 2010),
Joe Quinn collects some of the fake plots,
some of which were validated by
torture confessions and others by ignorant and fearful juries. The US government comes up with a
plot, an accused, and tortures him until he confesses, or the government
fabricates a case and takes it to jurors who know that they cannot face their
neighbors if they let off a media-declared
Perhaps the most obvious
of these cases is "the Miami Seven," a hapless group of
Christian-Zionist-Muslims that called themselves the "Sea of David," and were
quietly living in a Florida warehouse awaiting biblical end times. Along came
the FBI posing as Al Qaeda, and offered them $50,000 and an Al Qaeda swearing-in
The FBI told them that
they needed to blow up the Sears Tower in Chicago and various government
buildings. An honest reporter at Knight Ridder revealed: "The Justice (sic)
Department unveiled the arrests with an orchestrated series of news conferences
in two cities, but the severity of the charges compared with the seemingly
amateurish nature of the group raised concerns among civil libertarians," who
noted that the group had "no weapons, no explosives."
The Justice (sic)
Department and tamed media made a big show out of the "militaristic boots" worn
by the hapless "plotters," but the FBI had bought the boots for
The biggest piece of
evidence against the hapless group was that they had taken photos of "targets"
in Florida, but the US government had equipped them with
The US government even
rented cars for its dupes to drive to take the pictures.
It turns out that the
group only wanted the $50,000, but an American jury convicted them
When the US government has
to go to such lengths to create "terrorists" out of hapless people, an
undeclared agenda is being served. What could this agenda
The answer is many
agendas. One agenda is to justify wars of aggression that are war crimes under
the Nuremberg standard created by the US government itself. One way to avoid war
crimes charges is to create acts of terrorism that justify the naked aggressions
against "terrorist countries."
Another agenda is to
create a police state. A police state can control people who object to their
impoverishment for the benefit of the super rich much more easily than can a
democracy endowed with constitutional civil liberties.
Another agenda is to get
rich. Terror plots, whether real or orchestrated, have created a market for
security. Dual Israeli citizen Michael Chertoff, former head of US Homeland
Security, is the lobbyist who represents Rapiscan, the company that manufactures
the full body porno-scanners that, following the "underwear bomber" event, are
now filling up US airports. Homeland Security has announced that it is going
to purchase the porno-scanners for trains, buses, subways, court houses, and
sports events. How can shopping malls and roads escape? Recently on Interstate
20 west of Atlanta, trucks had to drive through a similar device. Everyone has
forgotten that the underwear bomber lacked required documents and was escorted
aboard the airliner by an official.
The "war on terror"
provides an opportunity for a few well-connected people to become very rich. If
they leave Americans with a third world police state, they will be living it up
This despite the fact that
everyone on the planet knows that it is not lactating mothers, children, elderly
people in walkers and wheelchairs, members of Congress, members of the military,
nuns, and so on, who are members of Al Qaeda plotting to bring aboard a bomb in
their underwear, their shoes, their shampoo and face
Indeed, bombs aboard airliners are a rare event.
What is it really all
about? Could it be that the US government needs terrorist events in order to completely destroy the US Constitution? On November 24, National Public Radio broadcast a report
by Dina Temple-Raston: "Administration officials are looking
at the possibility of codifying detention without trial and are awaiting
legislation that is supposed to come out of Congress early next year." Of course, the legislation will not come out of Congress.
It will be written by Homeland Security and the Justice (sic) Department. The
impotent Congress will merely rubber-stamp it.
The obliteration of habeas
corpus, the most necessary and important protection of liberty ever
institutionalized in law and governing constitution, has become necessary for
the US government, because a jury might acquit an alleged or mock "terrorist" or
framed person whom the US government has declared prior to the trial will be
held forever in indefinite detention even if acquitted in a US court of law. The
attorney general of the United States has declared that any "terrorist" that he
puts on trial who is acquitted by a jury will remain in detention regardless of
the verdict. Such an event would reveal the total lawlessness of American
The United States of
America, "the city upon the hill," "the light unto the world," has become Nazi
Germany. It was the practice of the Gestapo to ignore court verdicts and to
execute or hold indefinitely the cleared defendant in the camps. The Obama
regime is in the process of completing Dick Cheney's dream by legislating the
legality of indefinite detention. American law has collapsed to the dungeons of
the Dark Ages.
Anyone who thinks the
United States is a free society where people have "liberty, freedom and
democracy" is uninformed.
This Nazi Gestapo policy is now the declared policy
of the US Department of Justice (sic).
