    Huge manhunt for Boston bomb suspect

    People across Boston and surrounding suburbs have been told to stay indoors amid a massive police manhunt for one of two men suspected of carrying out the Boston Marathon bombings.

    Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, remains at large after he escaped a shoot-out in which another suspect, his brother, died.

    “Stay indoors with the doors locked,” the Massachusetts governor has said.

    Three people died and more than 170 were hurt when two bombs exploded near the finish line of Monday’s marathon.

    The FBI released several images of two men they were hunting in relation to the bombing, one wearing a white cap, the other a black cap.

    Police said “suspect number one” had been killed early on Friday, and they were looking for “suspect number two”, the “white-capped individual”, later named as Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

    The black-capped suspect – widely named in the US media as Tamerlan Tsarnaev – was the fugitive’s elder brother.

    Both are said to be of Chechen origin, and are reported to have moved to the United States about 10 years ago.
    Blast wounds

    The manhunt began late on Thursday when university police officer Sean Collier, 26, was killed on the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) campus.

    Two men carjacked a driver at gunpoint and drove away with the driver still in the car. They later released the man unharmed.

    Police chased the suspects, who threw bombs and exchanged gunfire with police, seriously wounding one officer.

    In the Boston suburb of Watertown, officers and the men were involved in a gun battle lasting 10 minutes, according to witnesses.

    The authorities in Massachusetts Bay have suspended the transport system and no vehicles are being allowed in or out of the Watertown area.

    The warning to stay indoors was later extended to the whole of Boston, in what correspondents said was an unprecedented move.

    “Stay indoors with the doors locked, and do not open the door for anyone other than a properly identified law enforcement officer,” Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick said on Friday morning.
    Gunshot wounds

    Meanwhile, President Barack Obama was briefed on developments in the manhunt and investigation for about an hour in the White House Situation Room.

    US Secretary of State John Kerry, also at the briefing on video link, said the authorities were “part of the way there” in bringing the Boston terror suspects to justice, AP reported.

    Overnight, video footage emerged showing a fully-clothed suspect lying on the floor, surrounded by police. More video was shown by US media of a suspect being led into a police car after being stripped of his clothes.

    But it is not clear who the men were, or what happened after their apparent arrests.

    Dr Richard Wolfe, of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, said an individual was brought in with multiple blast and gunshot wounds to his upper body.

    He was in cardiac arrest when he arrived at hospital and despite attempts to resuscitate him, he was pronounced dead at 01:35 (05:35 GMT), Dr Wolfe said.

    The authorities were investigating whether the dead man had a home-made bomb strapped to his body when he was killed, reports said.

    Boston police Commissioner Ed Davis said he believed the man being hunted in the Watertown area was a “terrorist”.

    “We believe this to be a man who came here to kill people,” he said.

    A grey Honda CRV vehicle, which reports said had been sought in connection with the suspects, was found on Friday morning in the Boston area, Connecticut police said.

    The father of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev said his son was a second year medical student in the US and was hoping to be a brain surgeon.

    But Anzor Tsarnaev told the BBC that that he believed the secret services had framed his sons.

    “It was a terrorist attack carefully organized by secret services – I don’t know which ones. My son used to go to a mosque, so they once paid us a visit to ask why he is doing that.

    “Yes, there was such an episode. So they put all the blame on him and shot him. That’s it.”

    Ruslan Tsarni, an uncle of the suspects who lives in Maryland, said he was “ashamed” of their alleged involvement in the bombings.

    “Yes of course we’re ashamed, they’re the children of my brother,” he said.

    Asked what the bombers’ motives may have been, he replied: “Being losers, hating everyone around them.”

    Monday’s attack on the Boston Marathon killed Martin Richard, aged eight, Krystle Campbell, 29, and Lu Lingzi, 23, a postgraduate student from China.

    • These two guys are patsies to take the fall for the real terrorists. They will have been sent to the location by the likes of FBI division #5 in order to take the heat away from the likes of the Craft mercenaries who are really carrying out the operation as a false-flag against whomever they wish to demonize. This could be domestic terrorists meaning true American Republic patriots or against Syria as a justification for military intervention. Lets wait and see who takes the blame.

      Do you remember the London 7/7 bombings? Two of the guys who were supposed to have suicide bombed the trains, were late for the bombed trains. These two were caught in the City of London and shot dead. This then stops anyone from finding out the truth, just like how they shot Lee Oswald as quick as possible. Lee Oswald saved John F. Kennedy from being assassinated a couple of months prior and this is why he was set upon for going against his previous handlers. Lets watch these criminals kill the second guy who’s on the loose right now in order to remove evidence of their lies and agenda.

      The FBI infiltrates rogue and genuine groups and they look for disgruntled people who are fed up with the system shafting them constantly. The FBI purposely groom these people under the guise of the organization involved. The FBI then has a paper trail and evidence trail for the victims which can then be used as a man-in-the-middle attack in order to cover the real perpetrators. Its an age old trick they do time in and time out, surprisingly the herd are still stupid enough to fall for it.

      These two guys have probably realized they have been setup for this terrorist event in Boston. They will be in a panic just like those two who were being setup in the London bombing. Expect these guys to go crazy as they are scared and know what is coming their way. The US media is over hyping the situation in order to spread fear and thus shut down Kidney functioning so the brain shuts down making you susceptible to their agenda propaganda programming.

  • FBI Ignores Questions About Drills, Other Suspects At Press Conference

    April 19, 2013
    http://www.infowars.com/fbi-ignores-questions-about-drills-other-suspects-at-press-conference/

    It has been a quite a week — We go from a lone wolf suspect to now a dynamic duo and we are told not to look at any other photos of anyone else carrying a back pack. And definitely don’t look at the agent casing the area who we (the FBI) blurred out for part of the video. Only look at the two guys one with a grey backpack. It does not matter that we told you it was a black backpack we have an explanation for that. Just shut up and listen to the FBI we are your gods.

  • Boston Bombing Suspect Killed, Another On the Run

    Eyewitnesses say men planned to attack University

    Paul Joseph Watson
    April 19, 2013
    http://www.infowars.com/boston-bombing-suspect-killed-another-on-the-run/

    Within hours of the FBI naming two culprits in the Boston bombings while aggressively demanding that no attention be focused on any other potential suspects, police found themselves engaged in a deadly shootout with the two individuals, killing one while the other remains on the run.

    “Two men identified by law enforcement sources as the Boston Marathon attack suspects — armed with explosives and guns — battled authorities in a Boston suburb early Friday morning, unleashing chaos until cops took one of the men into custody, and the other fled, the sources said. Officials later said the the suspect taken into custody died,” reports NBC News.

    Doctors said the suspect had “suffered extreme trauma to his trunk area” and had “a combination of blast and gunshot wounds.”

    Another suspect who was later released was held at gunpoint by police and later marched naked to a squad car.

    Eyewitnesses said the suspects set off grenades to try to fight off police and that they also had what looked like backpacks and a “pressure cooker bomb,” matching the explosive device used in the Marathon bombings.

    The standoff erupted shortly after a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer was shot dead after he investigated a disturbance on campus. Some have speculated that the suspects were preparing to attack the University.

    One of the alleged culprits has been named by 4chan researchers as Sunil Tripathi, a student who has been missing from his Philadelphia apartment since March 16. It is believed that Tripathi, seen wearing a white hat in the FBI photos, is still on the run while his alleged accomplice is the one who was shot dead by police.

    “The fact that Sunil Tripathi’s information was able to be dug up so quickly by 4Chan’s community and posted hours before the police even managed to engage Sunil in Watertown shows the lightning fast capabilities of alternative news and the internet at large,” writes Anthony Gucciardi. “This is why the mainstream media is failing to hold an audience and experiencing dwindling statistics while alternative news sources that capture the pulse of ongoing investigation manage to come out on top.”

    If we accept that the suspect killed by police was involved in the bombings, any information he could have known about additional accomplices or the numerous private security men that were also walking around the scene of the blast wearing heavy black backpacks, has now been buried.

    In addition, a possible Saudi connection to the bombings which led to a “person of interest” being deported shortly after the Saudi Foreign Minister held an unscheduled meeting with President Obama, will also be harder to uncover if police kill the remaining culprit.

    In any case where wider involvement in a plot needs to be covered up, the best kind of pasty is a dead patsy, so don’t be surprised if Sunil Tripathi meets the same fate as his alleged accomplice within the next 24 hours. Dead men tell no tales.

    If the suspects named by the FBI are the ones responsible for the bombings, they appear to have zero connection to the Tea Party, conservatives, gun owners, or libertarians, meaning the likes of Michael Moore and David Axelrod – who both asserted a Tea Party connection within hours of the bombing – got it completely wrong and owe conservatives a pretty hefty apology.

  • Why Government Should Be The First Suspect In Any Terror Attack

    History tells us that false flag is a favored form of statecraft

    Paul Joseph Watson & Kurt Nimmo

    http://www.infowars.com/why-government-should-be-the-first-suspect-in-any-terror-attack/

    In the aftermath of the Boston Marathon attack, with authorities struggling to retain a coherent official narrative in the face of photos which show numerous unidentified identically dressed men wearing black backpacks at the scene of the blast, it’s necessary to revisit the evidence of why government should be the very first suspect in the event of any terrorist atrocity.

    False flag terrorism – attacks manufactured or provocateured by governments and then blamed on other groups – is a tactic that stretches back almost 2,000 years.

    Nero and the Great Fire of Rome

    The Roman consul and historian Cassius Dio, his contemporary Suetonius and others say the Emperor Nero was responsible for the Great Fire of Rome in 64 AD.

    Legend claims Nero had one-third of the city torched as an excuse to build Domus Aurea, a 300 acre palatial complex that included a towering statue of himself, the Colossus of Nero.

    Prior to the fire, the Roman Senate had rejected the emperor’s bid to level a third of the city to make way for a ‘Neropolis,’ an urban renewal project.

    The Roman historian Tacitus wrote that when the population of Rome held Nero responsible for the fire, he shifted blame on the Christians for ‘hating the human race’  and starting the fire.

    The Spanish American War: Remember the Maine

    By the late 1800s, the United States was looking for an excuse to kick Spain out of Cuba. U.S. business was heavily invested in sugar, tobacco and iron on the Caribbean island.

    The U.S.S. Maine was sent to Havana in January of 1898 to protect these business interests after a local insurrection broke out. Three weeks later, early on the morning of February 15, an explosion destroyed the forward third of the ship anchored in Havana’s harbor, killing more than 270 American sailors.

    President McKinley blamed Spain after the U.S. Naval Court of Inquiry declared that a naval mine caused the explosion.

    American newspapers blamed the Spanish despite a lack of evidence. “You furnish the pictures and I’ll furnish the war,”  newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst told Frederic Remington after the illustrator reported that the situation in Cuba did not warrant invasion.

    A number of historians and researchers later argued that the ship was blown up by the United States to provide a false flag pretext to invade Cuba and expel Spain.

    The United States occupied Cuba from 1898 until 1902, although an amendment to a joint resolution of Congress forbid the U.S. to annex the country.

    Wilson’s Pretext for War: The Sinking of the Lusitania

    Nearly two thousand travelers, including one hundred Americans, were killed on May 7, 1915, when a German U-boat torpedoed the RMS Lusitania, a luxury Cunard Line British ocean liner.

    Prior to the sinking, the German embassy in Washington issued a warning. Newspapers in the United States refused to print the warning or acknowledge the German claim that the ship carried munitions.

    Wilson’s government issued a flurry of diplomatic protests after the sinking and exploited the tragedy two years later as a pretext for America to enter the First World War.

    Nearly a hundred years later, in 2008, divers discovered the Lusitania carried more than four million rounds of rifle ammunition.

    “There were literally tons and tons of stuff stored in unrefrigerated cargo holds that were dubiously marked cheese, butter and oysters,” Gregg Bemis, an American businessman who owns the rights to the wreck and is funding its exploration, told The Daily Mail.

    Hitler’s Fascist Dictatorship: The Reichstag Fire

    In February of 1933, a month after convincing Germany’s president that parliament must be eliminated, Hitler and the Nazis instigated the Reichstag fire.

    Hitler then urged president Hindenburg to issue an emergency decree restricting personal liberty, including the right to free expression and a free press, limitations on the rights of association and assembly, warrantless searches of homes, property confiscation, and violations of postal, telegraphic and telephonic communications permissible beyond the legal limits otherwise prescribed.

    The Nazis used the decree to crack down on their political opponents . They worked behind the scenes to force through the Enabling Act, which legally allowed Hitler to obtain plenary powers and establish a dictatorship.

    Gestapo Reichsmarschall Hermann Goring would admit that, “The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.”

    Prelude to World War: The Gleiwitz Incident

    Six years after the Reichstag Fire, the Nazis staged the Gleiwitz incident. Nazi commandos raided a German radio station in Gleiwitz, Upper Silesia, Germany. The raid was part of Operation Himmler, a series of operations undertaken by the SS as Hitler set the stage for the invasion of Poland and the start of the Second World War.

    SS operatives dressed in Polish uniforms attacked the radio station, broadcast an anti-German message in Polish, and left behind the body of a German Silesian known for sympathizing with the Poles. The corpse was then offered to the press as evidence that the Poles had attacked the radio station.

    Israeli False Flag Terror: The Lavon Affair

    In 1954, the Israelis activated a terrorist cell in response to the United States making friends with the Egyptian government and its pan-Arab leader, Gamal Abdel Nasser. The Israelis were worried Nasser would nationalize the Suez Canal and continue Egypt’s blockade of Israeli shipping through the canal.

    Israeli Prime Minister David Ben Gurion decided a false flag terrorist attack on American interests in Egypt would sour the new relationship. He recruited and dispatched a terror cell that pretended to be Egyptian terrorists.

    The plan, however, contained a fatal flaw. Israel’s top secret cell, Unit 131, was infiltrated by Egyptian intelligence. After a member of the cell was arrested and interrogated, he revealed the plot and this led to more arrests. Israeli agents were subjected to a public trial revealing details of the plan to firebomb the U.S. Information Agency’s libraries, a British-owned Metro-Goldwyn Mayer theatre, a railway terminal, the central post office, and other targets.

    In order to deflect blame, the Israeli government tried to frame its own Defense Minister, Pinhas Lavon, but the true nature of the plot was eventually made public.

    Operation Northwoods: Targeting American Citizens

    In the covert war against the communist regime in Cuba under the CIA’s Operation Mongoose, the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff unanimously proposed state-sponsored acts of terrorism in side the United States.

    The plan included shooting down hijacked American airplanes, the sinking of U.S. ships, and the shooting of Americans on the streets of Washington, D.C. The outrageous plan even included a staged NASA disaster that would claim the life of astronaut John Glenn.

    Reeling under the embarrassing failure of the CIA’s botched Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba, president Kennedy rejected the plan in March of 1962. A few months later, Kennedy denied the plan’s author, General Lyman Lemnitzer, a second term as the nation’s highest ranking military officer.

    In November of 1963, Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas.

    Gulf of Tonkin: Phantom Attack on the U.S. Military

    On August 4, 1964, President Lyndon Johnson went on national television and told the nation that North Vietnam had attacked U.S. ships.

    “Repeated acts of violence against the armed forces of the United States must be met not only with alert defense, but with a positive reply. That reply is being given as I speak tonight,” Johnson declared.

    Congress soon passed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, which provided Johnson with pre-approved authority to conduct military operations against North Vietnam. By 1969, over 500,000 troops were fighting in Southeast Asia.

    Johnson and his Secretary of Defense, Robert McNamara, had bamboozled Congress and the American people. In fact, North Vietnam had not attacked the USS Maddox, as the Pentagon claimed, and the “unequivocal proof” of an “unprovoked” second attack against the U.S. warship was a ruse.

    Operation Gladio: State Sponsored Terror Blamed on the Left

    Following the Second World War, the CIA and Britain’s MI6 collaborated through NATO on Operation Gladio, an effort to create a “stay behind army” to fight communism in the event of a Soviet invasion of Western Europe.

    Gladio quickly transcended its original mission and became a covert terror network consisting of right wing militias, organized crime elements, agent provocateurs and secret military units. The so-called stay behind armies were active in France, Belgium, Denmark, The Netherlands, Norway, Germany, and Switzerland.

    Gladio’s “Strategy of Tension”  was designed to portray leftist political groups in Europe as terrorists and frighten the populace into voting for authoritarian governments. In order to carry out this goal, Gladio operatives conducted a number of deadly terrorists attacks that were blamed on leftists and Marxists.

    In August of 1980, Gladio operatives bombed a train station in Bologna, killing 85 people. Initially blamed on the Red Brigades, it was later discovered that fascist elements within the Italian secret police and Licio Gelli, the head of the P2 Masonic Lodge, were responsible for the terror attack. Other fascist groups, including Avanguardia Nazionale and Ordine Nuovo, were mobilized and engaged in terror.

    Operation Gladio ultimately claimed the lives of hundreds of people across Europe.

    According to Vincenzo Vinciguerra, a Gladio terrorist serving a life-sentence for murdering policemen, the reason for Gladio was simple. It was designed to force these people, the Italian public, to turn to the state to ask for greater security. This is the political logic that lies behind all the massacres and the bombings which remain unpunished, because the state cannot convict itself or declare itself responsible for what happened.

    Terror in the modern age

    In the United States, the modern age of terrorism is defined by the FBI’s policy of fomenting and provocateuring patsy terrorists to carry out attacks via entrapment.

    As the New York Times reported last year, the vast majority of domestic terror plots in recent years were “facilitated by the F.B.I.”

    The most infamous case of the FBI steering a terror plot was the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

    Before the attack, the FBI planted informant Emad A. Salem within a radical Arab group in New York led by Ramzi Yousef. Salem was ordered to encourage the group to carry out a bombing targeting the World Trade Center’s twin towers. Under the illusion that the project was a sting operation, Salem asked the FBI for harmless dummy explosives which he would use to assemble the bomb and then pass on to the group.

    At this point the FBI cut Salem out of the loop and provided the group with real explosives, leading to the attack on February 26 that killed six and injured over a thousand people. The FBI’s failure to prevent the bombing was reported on by the New York Times in October 1993, as well as CBS News in the clip below.

    Underwear Bomber

    Detroit Lawyer Kurt Haskell witnessed a well-dressed man help the “underwear bomber ” Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab clear security before the attempted attack on an airliner on Christmas Day 2009 despite the fact that the bomber had no passport, in addition to the fact that his own father had warned U.S. intelligence officials of the threat posed by Abdulmutallab a month before the attempted attack.

    It later emerged that the State Department was ordered not to revoke Abdulmutallab’s visa by “federal counterterrorism officials” even though the accused bomber had known terrorist ties.

    Haskell maintains that Abdulmutallab was carrying a fake bomb and was the unwitting dupe in another case of government entrapment.

    This is by no means an exhaustive length of cases involving false flag attacks steered or provocateured by governments – such an endeavor would fill an encyclopedia-sized book – but it is a reminder that those who forget history are doomed to repeat it, and only the myopically naive would fail to shine the spotlight on the state in the immediate aftermath of any terrorist attack.

  • Police State Lockdown in Boston

    April 19, 2013
    http://www.infowars.com/police-state-lockdown-in-boston/

    Officials in Boston have imposed what is being described as a “total lockdown” as police search for a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings.

    ABC News reports:

    Across the area, as police cars screamed down streets and helicopters hovered ahead, authorities urged the public to stay inside, their doors locked to anyone but a law-enforcement officer.

    “There is a massive manhunt under way,” Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick said. “We are asking people to shelter in place.”

    The lockdown initially affected more than 300,000 people in Cambridge, Watertown, Newton, Brighton, Allston and Belmont, but by 8 a.m., the entire city of Boston was paralyzed, officials said.

    On Thursday evening, Boston police tweeted: ”Door-to-door search 4 suspect in Watertown continues. Uniformed officers searching. Community consent critical.”

    Travel in the city of over 600,000 is now virtually impossible. The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority has suspended activity. All schools and public buildings are closed. “All city employees were told to stay in place and not come to work. If they are already at work, they have been asked to stay in place,” NBC News reports this morning. All taxi service in the city of Boston has been suspended pending further notice, according to Fox 4 News.

    In Watertown, Massachusetts, State Police confirm they are conducting a door-to-door, house-to-house search. “Police will be going door by door, street by street, in and around Watertown. Police will be clearly identified. It is a fluid situation,” Dailybhaskar reports.

    According to CBS News, “Shelter in place” is usually used for chemical or biological attack.

  • Police Threaten Reporters in Boston Suburb

    April 19, 2013
    http://www.infowars.com/police-threaten-reporters-in-boston-suburb/

    As a coordinated police state envelopes Boston and its suburbs, the Associated Press reports that police are threatening reporters.

    “If you want to live, turn off your cell phone,” a police officer told journalists in Watertown, Massachusetts.

    It is not clear if the police believe cell phones will detonate explosives and endanger residents or if they now consider reporters with cell phones as terrorists.

    Regardless, the order is likely to put a damper on coverage of the events in Boston.

  • Media Flips ‘Confirmed’ Boston Suspect From Sunil Tripathi To Dzhokar Tsarnaev

    Anthony Gucciardi
    April 19, 2013
    http://www.storyleak.com/media-flips-boston-suspect-sunil-tripathi-to-dzhokar-tsarnaev/

    Early this morning, IB Times and Russia Today had ‘confirmed’ with Boston Police that the Boston Marathon suspect still evading police was indeed Sunil Tripathi. Now, in a 180 move, the suspect has changed to Dzhokar A. Tsarnaev based on a new AP report.

    It seems the media cannot stick with a suspect, pinning the Russian native and follower of Islam as the new ‘confirmed suspect’ hours after claiming that Boston Police had detailed the missing Sunil Tripathi as the suspect to CBS news. It was originally reported early this morning by the International Business Times:

    “Boston police on Friday revealed the names of two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing, one of whom is an Indian origin person, Sunil Tripathi, reported CBS-affiliated television station WFSB.”

    Sunil Tripathi had gone missing last month and was reportedly ‘depressed’ and left a suicidal note behind before leaving his Philadelphia apartment. Aside from looking very similar to the suspect in the FBI photos, Sunil Tripathi’s troubled history painted the very picture of a bomber. You can see the similarities in the photo below:


    Dzhokar Tsarnaev — Russian Immigrant

    Despite the similarities and convenient back story, AP is now reporting that Dzhokar Tsarnaev is indeed the correct suspect — despite supposed reports from Boston Police. The suspect is only 19 years of age, and ended up settling in Cambridge, Massachusetts after coming over from Chechnya.

    Whether or not this will be the last suspect pinned by the media is yet to be seen, however the Independent is reporting that the second suspect was Dzhokar Tsarnaev’s brother — who is now reported to be dead. The new report says:

    “The missing suspect has been identified as 19-year-old Dzhokhar A Tsarnaev from Cambridge. National security officials have confirmed that the two suspects are brothers, and the New York Times is reporting that the suspect killed by police has been identified as Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26.”

  • FBI tells America: believe us and no one else

    Jon Rappoport
    April 19, 2013
    http://www.infowars.com/fbi-tells-america-believe-us-and-no-one-else/

    The implication is clear: there is official truth and then there is everything else. How many times has that assertion put America in the dumper?

    As I write this, one suspect in the Marathon bombings is dead, and the other suspect is apparently surrounded in a house in Watertown, Massachsetts. (6:55AM, Pacific) The city of Boston is locked down.

    Once events reach this point, an overwhelming number of people believe the authorities. They accept what is happening. The FBI must have it right. Reject all other possibilities.

    That’s always a dangerous assumption.

    Yesterday, at a heralded press conference, seen by millions around the world, Richard DesLauriers, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Boston division, produced photos and video of two suspects in the Marathon bombing.

    He stated: “…these images should be the only ones, I emphasize, the only ones that the public should view to assist us. Other photos should not be deemed credible, and they unnecessarily divert the public’s attention in the wrong direction, and create undo work for vital law-enforcement resources.”

    Translation: Ignore all the images uncovered by independent researchers, citizen reporters, bloggers. Forget, for example, about photos of those men who appear to work for Craft International, a private security contractor, who were standing at the finish line of the Marathon. We, the FBI, are running this show. We’re the pros, we deal, you behave.

    NBC’s Brian Williams, the Unctuous One, in his lead-in to the press conference, said: “It’s been twenty-four hours of fits and starts, and false reports on people who have been pursued in this investigation, including folks who have been identified through photography, but this will be the word from the FBI.”

    Translation: The guessing is over. Drum roll. The F B I has the real goods. Those other photos aren’t officially certified by law-enforcement, or by us, the fawning water carriers for the Bureau and DHS. And that unfortunate and cruel detention of the Saudi lad, who was misidentified as a suspect, but later released, his travel visa now revoked, his deportation back to Saudi Arabia underway, after an unscheduled meeting between Obama and the Saudi foreign minister? Means nothing. We were informed by reliable sources that it means nothing. We decide what’s relevant, we give it to you and you take it.

    Richard DesLauriers, who starred in the FBI press conference, made his bones at the Bureau by engineering the exchange of 10 Russian sleeper agents in the US for four CIA agents who were in prison in Russia. That was his big career move.

    The Russian sleeper agents had been operating under the nose of the FBI in the US, who, in typical fashion, weren’t making any arrests. They were just tracking these Russian spies and watching them, for more than 10 years, as the spies passed across intelligence to their Russian controls.

    This was a very delicate exchange, mainly because FBI field agents a) didn’t want to let the Russians go back home and escape prosecution and b) because the FBI and the CIA hate each other, and the FBI people weren’t all that enthused about the value of the deal. Bring home four CIA people in return for releasing 10 Russian sleeper agents? Nothing to celebrate there.

    So now Richard DesLauriers is telling the American people: look at the photos of the two men on the FBI’s radar and nobody else. Ignore all other photos and all other information.

    Harken back, if you will, to another bombing incident. Oklahoma City, in 1995. The Murrah Federal Building. Remember? Tim McVeigh? The FBI was cooking the books on that one all the way.

    Just one example: A secret Department of Justice report on the bombing was presented to a very select audience. This DOJ report wasn’t undertaken voluntarily. No. FBI whistleblower Frederic Whitehurst had forced it to happen, because he’d gone public and said the FBI lab had fabricated evidence in the McVeigh case.

    Serious evidence. It turned out there was no reason to believe ammonium nitrate (fertilizer) had been the main explosive used to blow apart the Federal Building on the morning of April 19, 1995. A FBI lab supervisor named David Williams had decided ammonium nitrate was the substance because defendant Terry Nichols possessed a receipt for its purchase.

    So Williams made the lab evidence look like it confirmed ammonium nitrate. But it didn’t.

    The DOJ report detailing all this was so damning, the judge in the McVeigh trial ran away from it like a wild horse. He refused to allow the report into evidence. He forbade it from being discussed at all.

    Why was this so crucial? Because independent bomb experts had gone on the record with a quite different scenario. I interviewed three of them. They agreed that an ammonium nitrate bomb, in the Ryder truck at the curb, parked in front of the Federal Building, could not have caused the profile of damage sustained by the building. Impossible.

    Therefore, McVeigh, whatever he was guilty or not guilty of, had accomplices. Professionals, who had wired charges into the columns of the structure. These charges had wrought the real destruction.

    But the FBI did everything in its power to focus on McVeigh and and the amateur Nichols only. They ruled out every other lead, and there were plenty of them.

    The FBI essentially said, “These are the two suspects. Don’t look for anybody else. Pay no attention to anyone who says there are other perpetrators. They’re crazies. We know the truth.”

    Just like now.

    In 1995, Americans completely bought into the false FBI evidence and story.

    Once the FBI rolls and the news media back up the FBI, it’s a fait accompli. The public automatically follows suit. How could things be any different? How could so many resources be devoted to anything but the truth?

    “The FBI killed one terrorist. Now they have his brother, the other bomber, surrounded. This is it. This is the only story. Everything else is nonsense.”

    Yes, no, and maybe are reduced to yes.

    “The FBI would never have come this far with the case if they didn’t have things right.”

    Yes, that was exactly the mindset in Oklahoma City in 1995. Until it wasn’t. Until independent researchers uncovered miles of undiscovered information about other suspects and FBI lies.

  • Photo surfaces of ‘The Craft’ mobile communications van at Boston marathon

    http://www.naturalnews.com/039980_The_Craft_photos_communications_van.html

    A detailed, hi-res photo of more “The Craft” operatives and what appears to be their mobile communications van has just surfaced. “The Craft” is a group of private military operatives who have been revealed through a fast-growing number of photos published by Natural News and Info Wars.

    The mainstream media is engaged in a total blackout and refuses to run any photos of “The Craft” operatives. This story is quickly becoming the biggest media cover-up in history.

    Natural News was the first to identify the brand of the radiation detector being held in the hand of one “Craft” operatives. Now, we appear to be the first to run this photo of what looks to be an extremely high-end mobile communications van with seven more “Craft” operatives.

    The van clearly has a foldable satellite dish as well as what is possibly a microwave communications dome. The vehicle is a Chevy Escalade that has been outfitted with hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of roof racks and communications equipment.

    Note: We can’t be 100% certain this vehicle belongs to The Craft team, but it fits their M.O. While all the other emergency vehicles on the scene are clearly marked, this vehicle is unmarked. The proximity of The Craft members to the van is also an indication that this vehicle may be a “rally point.”

    Here’s the image:

    IP satellite?

    We may have identified the nature of the dish on the top of the vehicle. It closely resembles Quickspot IP satellite systems.

    Quickspot allows a vehicle to have broadband internet access on demand, anywhere in the world.

    Here are some additional photos of “The Craft” operatives that the alternative media has spearheaded while the delusional mainstream media continues to pretend that none of these photos even exist!

  • Boston Bombers: Role of CIA in Chechen Terror

    Islamic terror from Caucasus next phase of plan to undermine our liberty

    Kurt Nimmo
    April 19, 2013
    http://www.infowars.com/boston-bombers-role-of-cia-in-chechen-terror/

    We will be told brothers Anzor and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev are part of a renewed effort by al-Qaeda to attack America.

    The narrative now emerging in the Boston Marathon bombing is that the perpetrators are from Chechnya or a nearby region and the attacks are a product of Islamic terrorism.

    “The Chechen jihadi network is very extensive,” the neocon Walid Phares told Fox News. “They have a huge network inside Russia and Chechnya.”

    “They could well be supported by a significant international network,” warned Bush era neocon and former United Nations ambassador, John Bolton.

    Fox cites the globalist Council on Foreign Relations in a report today on the Chechen connection to the alleged Boston terrorists and notes that the late Chechen warlord Ibn al-Khattab met with Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan.

    Fox points to a George Washington University Homeland Security Policy Institute report issued in 2010 that says Chechnya is seen by “jihadi theoreticians” as place where “fighting is not only legitimate but also compulsory.” The report also claims noted Chechen rebel leader Doku Umarov attempted to align the insurgency “with the global jihadist narrative” and supported the idea of an “Islamic emirate in the Caucasus.”

    Fox predictably omits important facts as it works to establish a new radical Islamic threat – primarily that the so-called insurgency in Chechnya was largely a covert CIA initiative. Rebel leaders Shamil Basayev and Al Khattab were trained and indoctrinated in CIA sponsored camps in Afghanistan and Pakistan, notes Michel Chossudovsky. Pakistan’s ISI (Inter-Services Intelligence) played a key role in organizing and training the Chechen rebel army. The ISI also played an instrumental role in supporting the Afghan Mujahideen, a Muslim paramilitary force that would eventually mature under the guiding hand of the CIA et al into the Taliban and al-Qaeda.

    The British MI6 asset Abu Qatada raised money for the Chechnya jihad and the notorious Finsbury Park mosque imam Abu Hamza al-Masri – an informer for two British security services in London – raised funds for both the jihad in Chechnya and bin Laden’s Darunta camp in Afghanistan.

    The CIA also worked to destabilize the Balkans, a fact documented by the media in Europe but largely ignored in the United States. The effort to convert the Balkans into a “safe haven” for fanatical jihadists was aided by the CIA and the Pentagon. In 1993, CIA asset Osama bin Laden reportedly installed his number two man, Ayman al-Zawahiri, to run the organization’s operations in the Balkans.

    Despite all the evidence the United States, Britain, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia orchestrated efforts to undermine the Soviet Union – not only during its occupation of Afghanistan, but also in the Soviet Union’s Muslim states – and spread radical Sunni conflict throughout the region, we will be expected to believe brothers Anzor and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev are part of a renewed effort by an international al-Qaeda to attack America. The effort by the CIA to shepherd this fanatical movement will, of course, be omitted.

    This will be the narrative broadcast in the coming days by the establishment media. In response to this supposedly renewed effort by al-Qaeda and its affiliates in Chechnya, we will be expected to consent or at least passively acquiesce to the next phase of police state intrusion on our liberties.

  • Will Obama Insider, Media Mouthpieces Apologize For Fingering Tea Party, Patriots As Bombers?

    Fourth Estate is infested with politicking axe-grinders

    Steve Watson
    April 19, 2013
    http://www.infowars.com/will-obama-insider-media-mouthpieces-apologise-for-fingering-tea-party-patriots-as-bombers/

    Now a clear narrative has emerged that the main suspects in the Boston bombing were radicalized foreigners who recently converted to Islam, will the numerous analysts, advisors and media talking heads on the left issue apologies for openly suggesting that Tea party followers and patriots were likely behind the bombing?

    As we have reported all week, despite zero tangible evidence indicating that the attack was carried out by an anti-tax protester or a “right-winger,” numerous personalities on the left went ahead and made the connection anyway, as a way of pushing their political agendas.

    – Just hours after the bombing, Michael Moore blamed the Tea Party for the tragedy, tweeting “2+2 =” followed by “Tax Day. Patriots Day.”

    – A Salon.com opinion piece published last night entitled, “Let’s hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American,” expressed the desire that the “bomber ends up being a white anti-government extremist.”

    – Former Bill Clinton and Obama advisor David Axelrod also hinted on MSNBC that the attack could have been a form of tax protest.

    – CNN analysts claimed that “extreme right-wing individuals” are fond of the pressure cooker device featured in al-Qaeda’s magazine that was purportedly used to bomb the Boston Marathon finish line.

    – CNN’s Wolf Blitzer stated on live television within one hour after the bombings: “It is a state holiday, in addition to the Boston Marathon. It is a state holiday in Massachusetts today, called Patriots’ Day. And who knows if that had anything at all to do with these twin explosions?”

    – MSNBC’s Chris Matthews also theorized that the bombing could be the result of a protest against federal income taxes. “As you point out, and I just forgot, I filed already. It’s filing day for the federal income tax, which does cause some emotions around the country – sometimes in the wrong parts of the brain anyway,” Matthews said during his show.

    – BBC News coverage suggested that “chatter within the intelligence services” indicates that right wing extremists could be behind the attack, with analysts noting that the bombing occurred on Patriot’s Day, the holiday that commemorates the first battles of the American Revolutionary War.

    – In comments to the media, Richard Barrett, the former United Nations co-ordinator for the al-Qaeda and Taliban monitoring team said that the timing of the attack on Patriots’ Day and the relatively small size of the devices suggested the work of a domestic extremist.

    – Esquire’s Charles P. Pierce also made the connection, noting that Monday is the “official Patriots Day holiday” in Massachusetts, celebrating the Battles at Lexington and Concord. He also pointed out that April 19, the actual date of the battles, is connected to Oklahoma City bomber Tim McVeigh, who apparently considered himself a “waterer of the tree of liberty and the like.”

    – Former FBI agent Brad Garrett said he wouldn’t be surprised if the bombing had been carried out by a domestic extremist “patriot” group or individual in an attempt to make a statement.

    – Huffington Post blogger and Al Sharpton radio producer Nida Khan also blindly speculated that “all these anti-gov groups” could be behind the attack.

    – A US Forest Service PR rep also took to Twitter to blame the bombing on the Tea Party, writing, “I fear nutty logic goes like this … Patriots Day. April 15. Tax Day. Bad government. Boston. Tea Party. Let’s show ‘em.”

    – Actor and comedian Jay Mohr blamed the bombings on the Second Amendment, tweeting, “What bothers me most about today is that we’re getting used 2 it. ENOUGH. 2nd amendment must go. Violence has 2 stop. Culture MUST change.”

    This kind of disgusting rhetoric from so many of these public figures led statewide organizer for the Massachusetts Tea Party Carlos Hernandez to express his anger at opportunists milking the tragedy for political points scoring. Hernandez lost his 8-year-old nephew Martin Richard, who was the youngest victim of the bombing.

    “I just hope the politicians don’t try to show up at the funeral,” said Hernandez. “If these guys try to use it as political crap, I might get arrested.”

    It is blatantly clear that the talking heads mentioned above were willing that the atrocity be pinned on anyone associated with the political right in order that the Obama administration would be able to fully exploit the attack for its own ends.

    It is also clear that elected representatives and even investigators were being led down the “domestic extremist” garden path by such rhetoric in the immediate aftermath of the attack.

    Richard DesLauriers, the special agent in charge of the Boston FBI office, asserted very early on that “The person who did this was someone’s friend, neighbor or coworker,” ruling out the possibility that the attack was carried out by foreigners who entered the United States.

    Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss, the top Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee, went further, telling reporters, “There are a lot of things that are surrounding this that would give an indication it may have been a domestic terrorist.”

    Dutch Ruppersberger of Maryland, the top Democrat on the House intelligence, said the investigation was leaning towards the likelihood that the bombings were the work of a “lone wolf” extremist.

    For a long time now, government lobby groups such as The Southern Poverty Law Center, along with an already out of control Department Of Homeland Security have relentlessly pushed the notion that “right wing extremists” are the biggest threat to the security of the nation.

    Of course, their definition of a right wing extremist in their own reports is libertarian gun owners, Ron Paul supporters, Infowars readers, or anyone opposed to the policies of the Federal Reserve.

    Americans who believe the Constitution and the Bill of Rights are worth protecting from the predatory ravages of the federal government are now routinely considered “extremist” right wingers by these organisations and agencies.

    There are still holes you could drive a bus through in the emerging narrative of the Boston bombing suspects. The matter of unidentified private security agents crawling all over the scene of the crime operating some kind of drill immediately prior to the attack has also not been addressed by the FBI or the media. The possible Saudi connection has also been swept under the rug without being properly addressed.

    At no point, however, has there been any indication whatsoever in any form that American “patriots”, “right wingers” or tea party types were involved in the attack. The fact that this suggestion was uniformly rolled out by talking heads and analysts serves as proof, once again, that the mainstream media is infested by individuals and groups with a distinct political agenda to demonise Americans who still value their rights.

    Will there be apologies? Will there be punitive measures? Not Likely.

    An Infowars.com reader has sent in the photo below – militarized cops looking for a lone suspect in Boston. By the look of it, you’d think these cops are about to engage in a pitched battle with a heavily militarized foe, not some 20-something supposed terrorist who allegedly exploded a home-made black powder bomb.

  • Facebook Blocks Infowars Post on Suspicious Men Wearing Backpacks

    April 19, 2013
    http://www.infowars.com/facebook-blocks-infowars-post-on-suspicious-men-wearing-backpacks/

    For some reason, the folks at Facebook are blocking an Infowars post pointing out several suspicious people wearing large black backpacks, that some have identified as members of the group Craft International, hovering within feet of the Boston Marathon bombing.

    The following article is being blocked by Facebook:

    When you try to post the article, here’s what you get:

    We discovered this moments ago when users began emailing us screenshots of failed posting attempts:

    Despite the fact that news organizations like the Washington Times have also reported on the mysterious men spotted wearing large black backpacks at the scene, the Infowars post seems to be the only one being blocked.

    Has Facebook been asked by the FBI to censor Infowars content because of the damning photos proving private contractors were actually casing the Boston Marathon PRIOR to the explosions happening?

    This appears to indicate classic government censorship like that displayed by the Soviet Union who only allows printed matter, literature, and photographs that are in accordance with the official ideology and politics of the Communist Party.

    Here are some of the photos the FBI has ordered people not to look at:

  • The Boston murders: a cult of lies called government

    by Jon Rappoport
    April 18, 2013
    http://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2013/04/19/the-boston-murders-a-cult-of-lies-called-government/

    Yesterday, I covered the mystery of the pressure-cooker bomb. Where are all the holes in the remains of the cooker that should be there, owing to the fact that ball bearings and nails were packed around the explosive material, and all this shrapnel would have been driven through the cooker out into the air? There are no holes.

    At least we should see obvious evidence that shrapnel adhered to the walls of the cooker and pitted it considerably. We don’t see any of that.

    Now, we are told, the lid of one of the cookers was found on a rooftop, blown there by the bomb. Yet, again, photos show there are no holes in the lid. No shrapnel adhering to it.

    What were the actual bombs at the Marathon?

    The whole government scenario in the Marathon murders is collapsing. Mike Adams, writing at naturalnews, is exploring the members of the Craft private security team who were present at the Marathon finish line. At least one member of the team was carrying a radiation detector. What for? As Mike states, these pros don’t work for free. Who hired them? Why were they there? Major media aren’t discussing the subject.

    A college track coach. Alastair Stevenson, present at the Marathon, heard police announcements that a drill was taking place. Boston police are stonewalling that report. Why?

    The Boston Globe tweeted that the bomb squad was about to detonate a device, in a controlled explosion, across the street from the JFK Library, a mile away from the Marathon. Then, no followup. Nothing. Suddenly, there was no bomb at the Library. It was just a small fire.

    A Saudi national, Abdul Rhaman Ali Alharbi, was declared a suspect in the bombing. He was downgraded to a “person of interest.” Then he was innocent, but severely burned. Now he’s not severely burned. His travel visa has been revoked. He’s being sent home, deported, to Saudi Arabia. A free pass out of the country, on the heels of what Reuters is calling an unscheduled meeting between Obama and the Saudi foreign minister at the White House.

    This all gives rise to a conclusion. To be a government official, it’s essential to be able to lie. Chronically.

    I was recently a guest on Mike Bundrant’s radio show, “Mental Health Exposed.” We discussed cult mentality and how far-reaching it actually is.

    You can listen to the show — Cult Mentality with Jon Rappoport (Apr 17, 2013) — here: http://radio.naturalnews.com/Archive-MentalHealthExposed.asp

    You can also visit Robert Scott Bell’s radio archives at http://radio.naturalnews.com/Archive-RobertScottBell.asp and find many shows in which Robert and I discuss cult mentality in science, and what I call the Church of Biological Mysticism.

    This mentality applies to government and follows the three stages of cult development. By development, I mean deterioration.

    Take a federal agency—FBI, ATF, FDA, CIA, NIH, CDC. Each organization starts out with great enthusiasm, upon its creation. It announces big goals and makes an important mission statement. The ideals are high-flying. The personnel are filled with hope and energy. Stage one.

    In remarkably short order, something takes shape out of the fog: the leader is far more important than anyone realized.

    He not only sets the tone. He sits at the apex of a structure. At first, the structure was merely assumed to be whatever was necessary to forward the objectives. But now, in stage two, it assumes primacy. The leader informs the members (personnel) that the structure must survive. In order to do that, it will have to grow.

    There is no going back to the beginning. Widening the organization is a mandate of great priority. And for growth to happen, the members must assert extreme loyalty to the overarching goals, yes, but actually to the organization and the leader.

    The leader personifies the structure. He is the monarch. He issues the marching orders to his major minions, and they pass these orders, through the command-and-control apparatus, down to each member.

    Through repetitive brainwashing, realities are impressed upon the minds of the adherents (members, personnel). No one can wander off the reservation. Initiative and independent action, while seeming to be useful, are actually counter-productive and even dangerous. This the party line—exactly what would, for instance, keep a police officer from following his nose and his innate curiosity in politically charged investigation like the Marathon bombings.

    There are rules, and the burgeoning number of them are there to ensure the survival of the group. The rules have been carefully crafted. They are “for the greater good.” “We’re all in this together.” “What one person does affects everyone.” “Don’t go rogue.”

    In this stage two, a transformation is taking place. The idealism of the early days is being squashed, in favor of the collective.

    The survival of the collective is hammered, again and again. at the members. Without extreme obedience, the whole structure would fall apart and wash away. And who wants that kind of death?

    Stage three makes it appearance with pronouncements about external enemies. The leader carries that essential freight; convincing the members they are under threat is the mind-control glue that holds everybody together.

    These enemies want to destroy (or de-fund) the organization. They want to denigrate the group’s objectives. They want to defame the leader.

    The enemies, real and imagined, are named. It only matters that they seem to proliferate. Their threatening presence further tunes up the members. “We’re under attack. Don’t waver now. Only the strong survive. Take heart. We will win this war. Obedience is more important than ever.”

    It’s an easy step from external to internal enemies. That is the cherry on the cake. “We have a mole. There are traitors among us. Someone has leaked proprietary information. We’ve been infiltrated.”

    Now, an atmosphere of secrecy, suspicion, and paranoia spreads like poison among the members. The leader orders internal investigations, to root out the turncoats.

    At the same time, the organization is committing crimes. They are lying, they are stealing, they are making alliances with “influential people from the outside.”

    This is happening at the highest levels of the structure.

    Gone are the high-flying emotions of the early days. Life in the organization is grim.

    The structure has become large enough and criminal enough that some members are secretly looking for ways to game their own system. Others have gone passive and simply do what they’re told.

    The leader is pictured as a heroic embattled figure, standing on the parapet, directing his troops against invaders.

    Defectors from within the ranks are multiplying. But to a degree, the brainwashing holds.

    “In these dangerous times, your work is more important than ever. Deserting your post could defeat our objectives. We’re the good guys. Only we know how vital our goals are. We hold the key to survival. Your leader needs you. We all need you. Don’t back out now.”

    In the cult of government, there are exceptions. It’s understood that some talented and facile members will leave, only to join the outside criminal allies of the group. Otherwise known as “the revolving door” of government and industry.

    There is another level of brainwashing inside big government cults (departments, agencies). “Government is good. Without it, society would collapse. The larger government is, the better it is. The purpose of government is to serve. We need more government, not less. Never do we need less.”

    Members are now told, are made to understand, that lying and cheating are absolutely necessary. “For the greater good.” “Ends justify means.” This becomes the cultural imperative.

    Therefore, in a situation like the Boston Marathon murders, the discovery of a perpetrator is a must. The case cannot go unsolved. It is far better to arrest and prosecute, or kill, an innocent person than to wind up with nothing.

    Winding up with nothing would demean and cast an ill glow on the investigating agencies and even the president of the United States.

    And on top of that, the right type of person must be selected as the scapegoat. He must painted with a particular political persuasion.

    As time passes, and these government cults continue to expand, the language of criminality filters down from the high echelons, where it has been “the royal speech” for a very long time, to the lower levels.

    The pretense is stripped away. “Do what you need to.” “We’re making deals.” “Line up the Senator. He knows which side his bread is buttered on.” “Don’t tell (another agency) what we’re doing. They’d use it against us.” “Invoke national security and tell them to go screw themselves.” “Get me the file. We’ve got the goods on that bastard. He’s not going to mess with us.” “All hands on deck. I want a complete report on our accomplishments over the past year for the budget hearings in six months. Pad it. This has to look brilliant.” “Hey, that’s our lobbyist, not your lobbyist.” “We’re cooking the intelligence. What the hell else would you expect us to do.”

  • Boston Marathon Bombing, an Act of Domestic Terrorism?

    PROPHECY NEWS FLASH: 15 [UPDATE 17, 18] April 2013
    http://www.hogueprophecy.com/boston-marathon-bombing-an-act-of-domestic-terrorism/

    (UPDATE: 18 April): A quick note before the main article. Today is the day before two anniversaries dear to anarchist and right wing, home grown, all-American domestic terrorists. April 19 is the 20th anniversary of the Waco, Branch Davidian massacre “and” the 18-year anniversary of a reprisal for it, the Oklahoma City bombing of the Murrah Federal Building. For the record, I cannot shake an intuitive suspicion that the explosion yesterday evening in West Texas, just 19 miles north of the city of Waco, Texas, was not an accident but an act of an arsonist, a domestic terrorist who on off hours entered that fertilizer factory on the north end of town to start a fire he knew would launch an explosion the size of a small nuclear bomb doing massive damage, wounding and loss of life.

    The mushroom cloud from the blast that rocked West, Texas on the evening of 17 April.

    Being in this business of interpreting prophecies for three decades, I have seen my share of remarkable coincidences and have said these were as much and not evidence of conspiracies. But this time, I am not so certain. I hope this explosion is a dreadfully and badly timed coincidence, and yet… I ask you all, especially readers in the Waco area, to be aware and careful in the next day or two. Let me say again, I have no evidence to support this subjective feeling and I am concerned that the power of the explosion has all but left a crater out of any possible surviving evidence to back my suspicion that some arsonist anarchist or anti-Federalist “Tim McVeigh” out there set off the fire that blew things up, then vanished into anonymity. It is a signature of domestic terrorists that they hit and run, keep their plans close to their chests, unlike al-Qaeda. The Boston Marathon terrorists do this. Perhaps this is also being done in West Texas. God forbid there is another act, another explosion somewhere. Because that would back my intuition’s terrible vision that this was not an accidental explosion, of a rickety fertilizer plant already cited and overshadowed by a bad safety record.

    Remnants of the fertilizer plant.

    Now back to the main article stream about the Boston bombings:

    The first and second Boston Marathon explosions caught on camera.

    Friends,

    (UPDATE: 17 APRIL 2013) Two bombs contained in steal pressure cookers where left inside abandoned back packs near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, Monday 17 April, killing three and wounding 176. They were most likely detonated by cell phone signal at 2:15 pm Eastern time. I’m writing this at 2:28 Pacific. I want to post this message before the FBI news conference begins. I have not seen any pictures of the suspect placing one of the bombs. He will be the subject of discussion shortly by the FBI who say cryptically he has been “identified”. That’s a pretty open-ended use of the word. Whether it means they have his ID and know who he is, or whether he is simply the man captured on still and video cell phone cameras the federal agents need the public to help identiy, is soon be revealed.

    (Update 3:00 pm Pacific) The FBI news conference has been delayed over an hour now because of a bomb scare at the Boston Federal offices. Back to the 2:28 pm stream:)

    Aftermath of the Boston Marathon Bombing.

    What I want to say on the record is my intuitive vision of this man, soon to be revealed by the FBI. In my vision he wears a white baseball cap. He is Caucasian, not an Arab. The Boston bombing is an attack of domestic terrorists .

    Letters laced with the deadly poisonous agent Ricin were sent to US Senator of Mississippi Wicker and President Obama. These may be related to the bombing, but be mindful that a number of anti-Federal, anti-gun control extremists might be gathering to commit acts of terror because there are many anniversaries coming, dear to Neo-Nazi, anti-tax, anti-federal and white supremacist domestic terrorists. Please take note of these anniversaries (posted 15 April) and be vigilant:

    Today is 15 April (Internal Revenue Tax Day)
    The Internal Revenue Service is a weather vane of Right Wing ire and more extreme elements in the Tea Party Movement. Let me add that I am not painting the Tea Party Movement with a broad brush. Tax and spending reform are important issues this year and one of the key themes for my newest eBook, Predictions for 2013 and Beyond. There is coming the best opportunity in years for the Tea Party with bi-partisan help, to legislate real reform. Be that as it may, where most people seek to legislate change, there are extremists who might throw a bomb or in the case of anti-taxation extremist Joe Stack fly his plane into the Austin Texas IRS building on 18 February 2010, killing himself an IRS official in the building and injuring 13 others, two seriously.

    George Washington, by Arnold Friberg.

    15 April is a Holiday—Patriot’s Day
    This is a civil holiday in Massachusetts commemorating the anniversary of the Battles of Lexington and Concord, the first battles of the American Revolutionary War. Anti-Fed terrorists in America believe a second American Revolution is necessary and must be promoted.

    The Waco Massacre. FBI tanks pumping tear gas with flamable accellerant set the compound “accidentally on purpose” on fire?

    19 April—The 20-year Anniversary of the Waco Massacre
    Friday will be the 20-year anniversary of the Federal Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (BATF) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) bulldozed and set on fire the Waco Mt Carmel compound of David Koresh, on 19 April 1993, accidentally killing (some believe it was a massacre by design and intent) 78 members of the Branch Davidian sect also known as members of The People of the Seven Seals. Only nine survived. This tragedy became for many domestic anti-Fed militias and extremists “the Alamo” of their cause, even though Koresh and his disciples were not directly associated with right wing groups.

    Right wing extremists Tim McVeigh blew up the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City on 19 April 1995 killing 168 and wounding 680. Tim McVeigh set off a truck bomb on the second anniversary of the Waco Siege first as payback for the deaths by fire of David Koresh and his cult followers and secondly to trigger a revolt against what he believed was US dictatorship by federal government.

    McVeigh believed most of the BATF and FBI agents responsible for Waco had their offices at that federal building.

    April 20 is a popular date for White Supremacists domestic terrorist attacks because it is Hitler’s birthday.

Happy birthday evil Adolf!

    So, everyone, be alert. Awareness of your surroundings is one of the best weapons against terror attack. A greater awareness of suspicious bags like those propped up against walls unattended behind the crowds at the Boston blast might have prevented this tragedy.

    I have long forecasted that the greater threat coming to America is not from al-Qaeda but from domestic terrorists, predominantly right wing and White Supremacist in nature. I wrote the following observations and predictions 3.5 years ago:

    ___________________________________

    At the time of this writing (27-28 October), 2009 has a few months left. It may yet witness terrorist attacks in America adopting the new strategy of lone wolf, indigenous jihadists using homemade IEDs and store bought guns to shoot up subways and malls. The spate of arrests of such al-Qaeda sympathetic home grown terrorists in September and October belie what I hope is prevention of the future I forecast in an article back in April 2008 and reviewed in Predictions for 2009: “I predict the next terrorist attack on the US homeland will be small compared to greater danger for democracy coming from the reaction. The death of hundreds in a subway, train or bus blast, or volleys of shots fired by an al-Qaeda sniper in a shopping mall could be deployed by dark elements in the US government to suppress the American dream of a free society. A smaller event than September 11, 2001 will be hyped out of proportion by those elements using Hitlerian tried-and-tested tools of intimidating and disempowering a democratic citizenry with over sold and sensationalized—even outright false flagging—terrorist attacks. Reichstag-fan your fires of terrorism.”

    I believe now the window of an overseas-based Muslim terrorist attack is closing as domestic jihad cells replace it. Added to this is a new terrorist danger arising in 2010. Not only from Muslims but white Supremacists, right wing militias. The next great terrorist may be numbered among the angry and unemployable people who disbelievingly watch bankers and CEOs winning bonuses for busting the bank loaning payroll to their jobs. The well-armed American unemployed go out to set a fire or throw a bomb in a CEO limo’s direction.

    Mt. Carmel set on fire. Infra-red cameras later revealed FBI and ATF agents firing into the building frm the back side, not filmed by CNN.

    Law enforcement in 2010 will have to regard more closely the rise of domestic terrorism in America instigated by similar socio-economic causes breeding anger and hopelessness in the Islamic world. They live under corrupt governments that don’t listen to the people; class elites hold and control most of the wealth while the vast majority of citizens live in declining affluence and/or suffer under the spread and brutal deepening of grinding poverty. The disenfranchised, the hopeless also multiply in this country as bitter soil for the seed of terrorism. I fear some dreadful act is quite possible in 2010 or 2011.

    It’s just my oracle’s intuition. I would hope that Washington DC’s police are extra watchful of large trucks being parked on mainstreet Lobby-land: K street. That’s where most retired politicians out of office go to haul in a far more lucrative income in the political afterlife peddling their insider connections as lobbyists for corporate special interest and agent just about anybody else but the American people.

    Washington DC has three lobbyists for every legislator. The consequence of not dramatically reforming this systemic cancer on the body of democracy may lead to unbalanced and desperate people committing horrendous acts far worse than the 1995 Murrah Federal Building bombing by Tim McVeigh killing 168 and wounding over 680.

    This future need not happen. I pray those in the government who are reading this understand this is only a warning that can only be fulfilled by the current tendency of US president and Congress alike continuing to allow lobbyist influence to infect their decisions.

    The Internal Revenue Service building in Austin, Texas, drilled by Stack’s aerial kamikaze attack on 18 February 2010.

    No system can long aspire to change we can believe in unless it is anchored in ethical values and acted out with conscious and compassionate behavior at its core. In 2010, America risks losing its moral compass. Americans may navigate back on destiny’s right course towards a new and peaceful Jeffersonian revolution of reform, or the uncharted waters of tomorrow will be rife for domestic terrorists to act, and reactive governments to turn fascist in response down the years of the next decade.

    So many of you expected an act of terror in America during the Bush era would work like a Reichstag fire—a false flag terrorist act enabling fascist-leaning circles of the government to exploit marshal law and emergency rule to rob the American people of their rights and freedoms. Now I believe I’ve perhaps seen that future confessed in Predictions for 2009 begin to fade. No operatic, large-scale incident is coming. In its place though is a new tendency: terrorism goes freelance. New faces appear in the prophetic mirror, not foreign, but home born, Arab Americans and Caucasian Americans. I say these things not to frighten but to enlighten an awareness to change the future’s course.

    Be also advised of a new wild card in prophecy emerging around the world in earnest in 2010: an escalation of effective and often violent eco-terrorism.

    Tim McVeigh, center, led by FBI agents to jail.

    There’s more. Right-wing lone wolves believing a liberal black president disenfranchises their future. Is there a man or men trying to be the next Tim McVeigh out there?

    We must await such men and remember. Domestic terrorists are far more difficult to stop. They don’t look like foreigners. They know their way around their home turf. Their passports and driver’s licenses pass inspection. They go to flight schools with nary a suspicion why. They work around medical labs or on construction sites with explosive materials. They look like normal Kansan farmers ordering ammonium nitrate fertilizer and diesel fuel for their combines. How would you suspect one in a million of them also stockpiled nitromethane to manufacture a truckload sized diesel-fertilizer blast?

    Now the nagging question hidden in the confessional of many a reader’s mind.

    Is the American president in danger?

    Yes, for two terms in office, but I present the following prophetic riddle to you. I will answer it fully when I set down to write about Obama as he was recognized in prophecies from around the world. Obama closes the drawing of a karmic circle that the tragic death of Lincoln began. And when the circle is complete, it will be a happy outcome for both president and people.

  • Video appears to show looting after Boston Marathon bombing

    Were people taking advantage of a tragedy, or were they grabbing the expensive marathon jackets to help comfort people after the bombing?

    A video shot by a bystander in the wake of Monday’s Boston Marathon bombings, showing people taking expensive marathon jackets from a booth near the site of the explosion, has sparked anger over the alleged looting.

    The video, posted on Reddit, shows people surrounding a booth and taking jackets meant for finishers from a tent near the finish line.

    While it is clear from the video that some people were grabbing more than one jacket, some commenters have disputed their motives, including one YouTube commenter who said he was there.

    “They were grabbing the jackets to use as tourniquets you idiots!” wrote spicymeatsandwich. “That’s the reason I grabbed an entire boxful, plus you can see me heading right back towards the injured.”

    Another commenter, Sim Salabim wrote people were taking the jackets ” “to comfort the injured or those who could not go back to the hotel.”

    “Yes, some people took advantage of it, what can you do,” he wrote, in a now-deleted comment, “but it’s not looting what you see.”

    Gawker, which has concluded the video does not show looting, wrote:

    “Indeed, the unhurried, casual pace of the crowd doesn’t suggest that they thought the were engaged in an illicit activity. It’s certainly possible, we suppose, that a large crowd of people could unanimously elect to browse, at a leisurely pace, a bunch of merchandise and steal it in full view of cameras and in the midst of an overwhelming police presence. But it seems far more likely to us that they were given the impression that the jackets were being made available for free.”

  • The Legend of Chris Kyle

    The deadliest sniper in U.S. history performed near miracles on the battlefield. Then he had to come home.

    by Michael J. Mooney
    Published 3.18.2013
    http://www.dmagazine.com/Home/D_Magazine/2013/April/The_Legend_of_Chris_Kyle_01.aspx

    There’s a story about Chris Kyle: on a cold January morning in 2010, he pulled into a gas station somewhere along Highway 67, south of Dallas. He was driving his supercharged black Ford F350 outfitted with black rims and oversize knobby mudding tires. Kyle had replaced the Ford logo on the grill with a small chrome skull, similar to the Punisher emblem from the Marvel Comics series, and added a riot-ready aftermarket grill guard bearing the words ROAD ARMOR. He had just left the Navy and moved back to Texas.

    Two guys approached him with pistols and demanded his money and the keys to his truck. With his hands in the air, he sized up which man seemed most confident with his gun.

    Kyle knew what confidence with a gun looked like. He was the deadliest sniper in American history. He had at least 160 confirmed kills by the Pentagon’s count, but by his own count—and the accounts of his Navy SEAL teammates—the number was closer to twice that. In his four tours of duty in Iraq, Kyle earned two Silver Stars and five Bronze Stars with Valor. He survived six IED attacks, three gunshot wounds, two helicopter crashes, and more surgeries than he could remember. He was known among his SEAL brethren as The Legend and to his enemies as al-Shaitan, “the devil.”

    He told the robbers that he just needed to reach back into the truck to get the keys. He turned around and reached under his winter coat instead, into his waistband. With his right hand, he grabbed his Colt 1911. He fired two shots under his left armpit, hitting the first man twice in the chest. Then he turned slightly and fired two more times, hitting the second man twice in the chest. Both men fell dead.

    Kyle leaned on his truck and waited for the police.

    When they arrived, they detained him while they ran his driver’s license. But instead of his name, address, and date of birth, what came up was a phone number at the Department of Defense. At the other end of the line was someone who explained that the police were in the presence of one of the most skilled fighters in U.S. military history. When they reviewed the surveillance footage, the officers found the incident had happened just as Kyle had described it. They were very understanding, and they didn’t want to drag a just-home, highly decorated veteran into a messy legal situation.

    Kyle wasn’t unnerved or bothered. Quite the opposite. He’d been feeling depressed since he left the service, struggling to adjust to civilian life. This was an exciting reminder of the action he missed.

    That night, talking on the phone to his wife, Taya, who was in the process of moving with their kids from California, he was a good husband. He asked how her day was. The way some people tell it, he got caught up in their conversation, and only right before they hung up did he remember his big news of the day: “Oh, yeah, I shot two guys trying to steal my truck today.”

    A brief description of the incident appeared in fellow SEAL Marcus Luttrell’s 2012 book Service: a Navy SEAL at War— but not Kyle’s own best-seller, American Sniper—and there are mentions of it in various forums deep in the corners of the internet. Before Kyle’s murder at the hands of a fellow veteran in February, I asked him about that story during an interview in his office last year, as part of what was supposed to be an extended, in-depth magazine story about his service and how hard he worked to adjust back to this world—to become the great husband and father and Christian he’d always wanted to be.

    He didn’t want to get into specifics about the gas station shooting, but I left that day believing it had happened.

    THE OFFICES OF CRAFT INTERNATIONAL, the defense contractor where Chris Kyle was president until his death, were immaculate. You needed one of the broad-chested security guards from downstairs as an escort just to get to that floor of the building. Sitting under thick glass in the lobby, there was an exceptionally rare, original English translation of Galileo’s Dialogue (circa 1661). A conference room held a safe full of gigantic guns—guns illegal to own without a Department of Defense contract.

    At 38, Kyle was a large man, 6-foot-2, 230 pounds, and the muscles in his neck and shoulders and forearms made him seem even bigger, like a scruffy-bearded giant. When he greeted me with a direct look in the eye and a firm handshake, his huge bear paw enveloped my hand. That day he had on boots, jeans, a black t-shirt, and a baseball cap. It’s the same thing he wore most days he came to the office, or when he watched his daughter’s ballet recitals, or during television interviews with Conan O’Brien or Bill O’Reilly.

    This was one of the rare chances when he’d have a few hours to talk. Over the next three days, he would be teaching a sniper course to the Dallas SWAT teams and he had three book signings, one at a hospital in Tyler (for a terminal cancer patient whose doctor reached out to him), one at Ray’s Sporting Goods in Dallas, and one at the VA in Fort Worth. He’d also have to fly down to Austin for a shooting event Craft was putting on for Speaker of the House John Boehner and several other congressmen.

    “We are not doing this for free,” he said, anticipating a question. “We accept Republicans and Democrats alike, as long as the money is good.”

    A few weeks later, he would have to cancel a weekend meeting because he was invited to hang out with George W. Bush. “Sorry,” he said, when asked if anyone else might be able to join. “Not even my wife’s allowed to come.”

    He loved the Dallas Cowboys and the University of Texas Longhorns. He loved going to the Alamo, looking at historic artifacts. The license plate on his truck had a picture of the flag used during the Texas Revolution, with a cannon, a star, and the words COME AND TAKE IT. Being in the military forced him to move a lot, and neither of his children was born in Texas. But for each birth, he had family send a box of dirt from home—so the first ground his kids’ feet touched would be Texas soil.

    He was outspoken on a lot of issues. He believed strongly in the Second Amendment, politely decrying the “incredible stupidity” of gun control laws anytime he was asked. He said he was hesitant to see the movie Zero Dark Thirty because he’d heard that it was a lot of propaganda for the Obama administration. Once, he posted to his tens of thousands of Facebook fans: “If you don’t like what I have to say or post, you forget one thing, I don’t give a shit what you think. LOL.”

    He didn’t worry about sounding politically incorrect. The Craft International company slogan, emblazoned around the Punisher skull on the logo: “Despite what your momma told you, violence does solve problems.”

    His views were nuanced, though. “If you hate the war, that’s fine,” he told me. “But you should still support the troops. They don’t get to pick where they’re deployed. They just gave the American people a blank check for anything up to and including the value of their lives, and the least everyone else can do is be thankful. Buy them dinner. Mow their yard. Bake them cookies.”

    “The best way to describe Chris,” his wife, Taya, says, “is extremely multifaceted.”

    He was a brutal warrior but a gentle father and husband. He was a patient instructor, and he was a persistent, sophomoric jokester. If he had access to your Facebook account, he might announce to all your friends and family that you’re gay and finally coming out of the closet. If he wanted to make you squirm, he might get hold of your phone and scroll through your photos threatening to see if you kept naked pictures of your girlfriend.

    Kyle liked when people thought of him as a dumb hillbilly, but he had a remarkable ability to retain information, whether it was a mission briefing, the details of a business meeting, or his encyclopedic knowledge of his own hero, Vietnam-era Marine sniper Carlos Hathcock. While on the sniper rifle, Kyle had to do complicated math, accounting for wind speed, the spin of a bullet, and the curvature and rotation of the Earth—and he had to do it quickly, under the most intense pressure imaginable. Those were the moments when he thrived.

    The most common question he was asked was easy to answer. He said he never regretted any of his kills, which weren’t all men.

    “I regret the people I couldn’t kill before they got to my boys,” he said. That’s how he referred to the men and women he served with, across the branches: “my boys.”

    He said he didn’t enjoy killing, but he did like protecting Americans and allies and civilians. He was the angel of death, sprawled flat atop a roof, his University of Texas Longhorns ball cap turned backward as he picked off enemy targets one by one before they could hurt his boys. He was the guardian, assigned to watch over open-air street markets and elections, the places that might make good marks for insurgent terrorists.

    “You don’t think of the people you kill as people,” he said. “They’re just targets. You can’t think of them as people with families and jobs. They rule by putting terror in the hearts of innocent people. The things they would do—beheadings, dragging Americans through the streets alive, the things they would do to little boys and women just to keep them terrified and quiet—” He paused for a moment and slowed down. “That part is easy. I definitely don’t have any regrets about that.”

    He said he didn’t feel like a hero. “I’m just a regular guy,” he said. “I just did a job. I was in some badass situations, but it wasn’t just me. My teammates made it possible.” He wasn’t the best sniper in the SEALs teams, he said. “I’m probably middle of the pack. I was just in the right spots at the right times.”

    The way he saw it, the most difficult thing he ever did was getting out of the Navy.

    “I left knowing the guy who replaced me,” he said. “If he dies, or if he messes up and other people die, that’s on me. You really feel like you’re letting down these guys you’ve gone through hell with.”

    The hardest part? “Missing my boys. Missing being around them in the action. That’s your whole life, every day for years. I hate to say it, but when you’re back and you’re just walking around a mall or something, you feel like a pussy.” It nagged at him. “You hear someone whining about something at a stoplight, and it’s like, ‘Man, three weeks ago I was getting shot at, and you’re complaining about—I don’t even care what.’ ”

    There was also the struggle to readjust to his family life. “When I got out, I realized I barely knew my kids,” he said. “I barely knew my wife. In the three years before I got out, I spent a total of six months at home. It’s hard to go from God, Country, Family to God, Family, Country.”

    But three years after he left the SEALs, he had a job he liked. He could do (mildly) badass things: shoot big guns, detonate an occasional string of explosives, be around a lot of other former special-operations types. His marriage was finally back in a good place. He had a book on the best-seller list. And he had the chance to help veterans through a number of charities.

    “A lot of these guys just miss being around their boys, too,” he said. “They need guys who speak their speak. They don’t need to be treated like they’re special.”

    He’d often take vets out to the gun range. Being around people who understood what they’d been through, being able to relax and shoot off some rounds, it was a little like group therapy.

    With his family, and with training people, helping people, he had found a new purpose. Chris Kyle could do anything if he had a purpose. He’d been like that since he was a little boy.

    HE WAS THE SON OF A CHURCH DEACON AND a Sunday school teacher. His father’s job at Southwestern Bell had the family moving a lot, so he was born in Odessa, but he told people he grew up “all over Texas.” About the same time he was learning to read, he learned to love guns. He liked to hunt with his father and brother. For his birthday parties, he wanted to have BB gun wars. He perched on the roof of his parents’ house waiting for his friends to dart across the yard. He wasn’t a great shot back then, but at least one friend is still walking around with one of Kyle’s BBs in his hand.

    In high school in Midlothian, he played football and baseball. He showed cows through the FFA. He and his buddies cruised for girls in nearby Waxahachie. He also liked to fight. His father warned him never to start a fight. Kyle said he lived by that code “most of the time.” He found that if he was sticking up for his friends, or for kids who couldn’t defend themselves, he got to fight and he got to be the good guy at the same time. Once he felt like he was standing up for something right, he would never back down.

    Bryan Rury was a close friend of Kyle’s in high school. Rury was much smaller than his friend, but it seemed they were always standing next to each other. “I think Chris liked looking like a giant,” Rury says.

    One time, there was a new kid in school who was trying to make a name for himself by picking on Rury. Kyle came into class one day to find Rury quiet, upset. “He asked me what was wrong, and I wouldn’t tell him,” Rury says. “But he figured it out on his own pretty fast.”

    Kyle went over to the new kid’s desk and, in his not-so-subtle, Chris Kyle way, told him he better leave his friend alone. Or else. The kid stood up from his desk, and they went at it. Kyle almost never started the fight, his friends say, but he always ended it. “As they were taking him off to the principal’s office, I just remember him flashing me that giant smile of his,” Rury says.

    After high school, he went to Tarleton State for two years, mostly to postpone the responsibilities of adulthood. He spent more time drinking than studying, and soon he decided he’d rather be working on a ranch full-time. But he knew his future was in the military—in the Marines, he thought, until a Navy recruiter told him about all the cool things he could potentially do as a SEAL—and he figured he shouldn’t waste any more time.

    Kyle breezed through the Navy’s basic training. He only made it through BUD/S (Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL) training by way of sheer resolve. He told stories about lying there on the beach, his arms linked with his friends’, their heads hovering above the frigid rising tide. He knew if he got up and rang the bell—if he quit—he could get hot coffee and a doughnut. The uncontrollable shivering—they called it “jackhammering”—lasted for hours, but he never wanted to stop. He joked that he was just lazy, that if the bell had only been a little closer, maybe his entire life would have been different. But the truth is, nothing could have kept him from his dream.

    “He had more willpower than anyone I’ve ever met,” Taya says. “If he cared about something, he just wouldn’t ever quit. You can’t fail at something if you just never quit.”

    Taya met Kyle in a bar in San Diego, just after he finished BUD/S. When she asked what he did—she suspected from the muscles and the swagger that he was in the military—he told her he drove an ice cream truck. She figured he’d be arrogant but was surprised to find him idealistic instead. But she was still skeptical. Taya’s sister had divorced a guy who was trying to become a SEAL, and she’d specifically said she could never marry someone like that.

    But Kyle turned out to be quite sensitive. He was able to read her better than anyone she’d known. Even when she thought she was keeping something hidden behind a good facade, he could always see through it. That kept them from needing to talk about their emotions or constantly reassess their relationship. They got married shortly before he shipped out to Iraq for the first time.

    IT TAKES YEARS TO EARN ENOUGH TRUST TO be a SEAL sniper. Even after sniper school, Kyle had to prove himself again and again in the field, in the pressure of battle. He served other missions before Afghanistan and Iraq, in places he couldn’t discuss because the operations were classified.

    As he would eventually describe in American Sniper, his first kill on the sniper rifle came in late March 2003, in Nasiriya, Iraq. It wasn’t long after the initial invasion, and his platoon—“Charlie” of SEAL Team 3—had taken a building earlier that day so they could provide overwatch for a unit of Marines thundering down the road. He was holding a bolt-action .300 Winchester Magnum that belonged to his platoon chief. He saw a woman about 50 yards away. As the Marines got closer, the woman pulled a grenade. Hollywood might have you believe that snipers aim for the head—“one shot, one kill”—but effective snipers aim for the middle of the chest, for center mass.

    Kyle pulled the trigger twice.

    “The public is soft,” he used to say. “They have no idea.” Because of that softness, he had to have that story, and others, cleared by the Department of Defense before he could include them in his book.

    He wanted outsiders to know exactly what kind of evil the troops have had to deal with. But he understood why the Pentagon wouldn’t want to give America’s enemies any new propaganda. He knew the public didn’t want to hear about the brutal realities of war.

    Kyle served four tours of duty in Iraq, participating in every major campaign of the war. He was on the ground for the initial invasion in 2003. He was in Fallujah in 2004. He went back, to Ramadi in 2006, and then again, to Baghdad in 2008, where he was called in to secure the Green Zone by going into Sadr City.

    Most of his platoon was in the Pacific theater before the 2004 deployment. Kyle was sent early to assist Marines clearing insurgents in Fallujah. Tales of his success in combat trickled back to his team. He was originally supposed to watch over the American forces perched at a safe distance, but he thought he could provide more protection if he was on the street, going house to house with his boys. During one firefight, it was reported that Kyle ran through a hail of bullets to pull a wounded Marine to safety. His teammates, hearing these stories, started sarcastically referring to him as The Legend.

    Those stories of bravery in battle proliferated on his third deployment. A younger SEAL was with Kyle at the top of a building in Ramadi when they came under heavy fire. The younger SEAL, who is still active in the teams and can’t be named, dropped to the ground and hid behind an interior wall. When he finally looked up, he saw Kyle standing there, glued to his weapon, covering his field of fire, calling out enemy positions as he engaged.

    Kyle said the combat was the worst on his last deployment, to Sadr City in 2008. The enemy was better armed than before. Now it seemed like every time there was an attack, there were rocket-propelled grenades and fights that went on for days. This was also the deployment that produced Kyle’s longest confirmed kill.

    He was on the second floor of a house on the edge of a village. With the scope of his .338 Lapua, he started scanning out farther into the distance, to the edge of the next village, a mile away. He saw a figure on the roof of a one-story building. The figure didn’t seem to be doing much, and at the moment he didn’t appear to have a weapon. But later that day, as an Army convoy approached, Kyle checked again and saw the man holding what looked like an RPG. At that distance, Kyle could only estimate his calculations.

    He pulled the trigger and watched through his scope as the Iraqi, 2,100 yards away, fell off the roof. It was the world’s eighth-longest confirmed kill shot by a sniper. Later, Kyle called it a “really, really lucky shot.”

    Private Military Contractors Under Suspicion at Boston Bombing

    Yesterday, Infowars.com posted images of what they referred to as Navy SEALs in civilian field gear lurking at the finish line of the Boston Marathon where two bombs killed 3 and injured hundreds.

    It turns out these men were Blackwater-like private military contractors from Craft International, according to investigative journalist Anthony Gucciardi of StoryLeak.com.

    The two mercenaries were wearing typical field gear of khaki tactical pants, combat boots, black coats, and carrying suspicious backpacks. But what really gives them away as Craft International mercs is the hat with the Punisher-like symbol on it.

    Bottom is Craft founder and ex-Navy SEAL Chris Kyle (deceased) in the same hat

    Gucciardi writes:

    There has been much discussion over the two individuals fitted with earpieces and military-esque gear spotted at the Boston Marathon, but as it turns out they may likely be employees of the Blackwater-style private military/security firm Craft International.

    Craft International, modeled after Blackwater as an advanced private military training organization, was founded by the late ex-Navy SEAL Sniper Chris Kyle.

    Either these serious-looking fellows are big fans of military contractors and want to emulate them, or they’re the real deal. In either case, they seem very suspicious to be at the scene of the crime clearly dressed in civilian mission gear.

    Craft describes the reasoning behind the skull symbol as their logo:


    Chris Kyle in his Craft gear

    The story behind the Craft Skull logo combines several meaningful pieces of Chris Kyle’s life and service to this great nation but mainly honors his fallen teammates. As part of SEAL Team 3, Chris and his fellow teammates painted similar skulls on their gear in order to strike fear in the enemy. The crosshair symbolizes his time spent on a sniper rifle and is also in the form of a templar cross to symbolize his faith. Lastly, the crosshair is on the right eye to honor SO2 Ryan Job USN (SEAL), who was critically wounded when he was shot in the right eye while on deployment to Iraq in 2006.

    Following the successful rescue mission by Navy SEALs of freighter Captain Richard Phillips on Easter morning, 2009, Ryan Job was asked by a local reporter if he thought using Navy SEALs against Somali pirates was overkill. His response was, “despite what your mamma told you, violence does solve problems.” Ryan Job died in September of that year following complications during reconstructive surgery.

    The Craft Skull is a daily reminder to us all the sacrifices brave warriors have made and what it takes to triumph over evil.

    Additionally, a third figure dressed identically is seen crossing the threshold of the finish line holding what appears to be some kind of remote control.

    Will someone in the media have the courage to ask the authorities if these clearly suspicious characters are being considered as official suspects?

  • Boston bombings and Israeli tentacles into US security

    Thu Apr 18, 2013 6:11AM
    By Jim W. Dean
    http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2013/04/18/298918/israeli-tentacles-into-us-security/

    The dust has settled on Boston, America’s newest example and scene of national insecurity.

    As Kevin Barrett’s hugely successful Press TV article pointed out yesterday we witnessed corporate media suggesting a major domestic terror attack might have been done by our own security people. Military Intelligence agrees.

    Tony Cartalucci followed with his article focusing on how most of the terrorism in America has either been imported in the form of Intel trained sacrificial lambs such as the Chicago bomber, who without ID or luggage was just escorted onto an awaiting plane by security people.

    He further described the FBI’s involvement in home grown terrorism by grooming MK Ultra type fringe people and leading them through all the steps necessary to give them an easy terror bust.

    Many in the Intel and national security business have watched all this happen just totally aghast not only at the brazenness involved to orchestrate such sting operations, but the general acceptance by a public that seems almost brain dead to the internal threat represented. There is much blame to go around.

    The pattern of so-called terror attacks happening when terror drills are being held at the same location has happened way too often to be a coincidence. This leads me to recommend that whenever a terror drill is suggested for the next major public event that all of the security organizers be arrested on the spot and water boarded to get all the details from them.

    Corporate media today continued their downhill slide in public trust. They completely censored out the confirmed reports of a bomb exercise drill being conducted at the finish line area. I suspect that DHS just told them that was wrong the media shills took that as true. We have the photos of the bomb sniffing dogs, and what motive would the witnesses have to lie?

    Military Intelligence usually suspects US law enforcement for most ‘terror attacks’ because they are intimately aware of Israeli intelligence penetration into not only the FBI but having many tentacles into the Dept. of Homeland InSecurity. Much of this is due to their super asset and first DHS director Michael Chertoff.

    It was through his setting up the outsourcing of DHS’s security drills to outside contractors which was the first nail in the coffin for American security. What most don’t know is that these are usually Israeli companies. They play the role of the ‘opposing force’. Chertoff also saw to it that the Israelis got an affirmative action gift of being a first stop for buying security equipment, ahead of American companies even.

    If someone were to ask me if other Western countries, when doing their ‘security drills’ if Israeli companies were also contracted to play the opposing force, I would respond, “What do you think?” I think you all are smart enough to see the scale of treason involved in these countries to allow such a situation to develop. More complicated is why all those in their respective security agencies who know this is done to put the Israelis in a position to penetrate them, will never say a word about it publicly.

    At Veterans Today we had our counter terror crew going over high resolution photos being sent in and closely reviewed not only for what was to seen, which smart cadets could do, but what was not there, which often tells you a lot more about who is really behind a terror attack.

    What we quickly observed was security breach after security breach, like all the doors had been left open. We saw Israeli operational profiles all over the place, many with ear buds getting feeds from higher up spotters who were watching where the cops and bomb dogs were, and where they were not.

    Backpacks, including big ones were everywhere to be seen like there was a backpack convention going on in Boston. Most of the police presence seemed to be involved in protecting the runners from the race bystanders with all eyes on tired runners trudging over the finish line.

    The obvious glaring weak spot was behind the crowd, always the perfect place for bomb placement as the blast effect would be enhanced bouncing off the solid construction of buildings. But in all of the photos we have seen so far there was no visible uniform police presence in this vulnerable area, just two obvious kind of undercover cops or contractors.

    Security protocol would usually have these areas discreetly patrolled by plain clothes officers in ear plug communication with overhead spotters guiding them toward anyone looking suspicious. We have long had special equipment that such undercover cops can carry that can screen what people have in their bags simply be standing next to them.

    In the drill they announced they were running they would have had people trying to catch a bomb drop. If not, why else have a drill, other than to pull off a real bombing?

    Concealed bomb and weapons detection mobile technology was used long ago for the Secret Service to be able to mingle in a crowd and pick up anyone who had a gun on them. It is much better today, lighter and more accurate.

    The pressure cooker bomb is a large target to spot, not the little pipe bomb one might suspect to be used at such a gathering. They can be concealed under an arm or in the groin area. We spotted a suspect with the clear outline of one of these kettle bombs in his backpack. We have not a single report of a backpack search by any witness, photo or video evidence.

    This suspect had a tubular potato chip canister in the side of his bag, the same one that was seen when he was captured on video camera placing the second bomb. BTW it went off 12 seconds after the first, a professional bomb placement from training where you would know that someone ducking for cover in a doorway after an explosion like he did would not be suspicious at all. He could have been a patsy as they are routinely used in these ‘exercise’ false flag ops so the local cops can have their fall guy.

    Would real security allow people with big backpacks to roam around without some way to screen these bags? No. So what happened? How did two kettle bombs get placed within a 100 yards of the finish line where the perpetrators would know all the TV cameras would be? Who would risk such a ‘certain to get caught’ attack unless they were rigging up as suicide bombers?

    Absent from the media coverage today was even a single word of what a tremendous security failure this is. They have so many agencies involved in these joint task forces that is common for many participants to feel someone else is always responsible for doing the real work. Many are just along for the ride and the easy overtime money.

    Yes, folks. These events are milked for extra hours fought over so everybody gets their cut of the extra security cash for these big events. Our controlled media did their usual job of not only staying completely away from a horrible security failure, but also diverting the public’s attention from it. CNN was all feel goody hero stories today, when the only needed heroes should have been those who caught the bombers.

    What we have here once again is a profile of a security stand down. Could it be incompetence? No, not when you outsource to one of the biggest terrorist operations in the world… the one called Israel. If you tried to do anything to turn this situation around you would be up against the vast majority of Congress as usual… people also are confused about their loyalty. They also are held in contempt in military Intel circles for betraying their country.

    We have a photo of the bomber talking to a cohort in the blue sweatshirt top and red sneakers. He also was carrying a big backpack and is a suspect as the first bomber. Our sources tell us he was picked up and is safely on his way home now. I will let you guess where. This will be just another chapter in the book called American Treason. It will take a major shaking up of the country to pry the fingers of these people from our throats. But frankly, I fear the good folks don’t have the stomach for it.

    Let me repeat in closing. There was no way that two kettle bombs could have been walked in, placed, and then the bombers get away, without a security penetration letting them do it. And if any of you have any doubts, the ricin letters that made the news today… that a dead giveaway of an organized terror campaign by our own people here, like the anthrax was back around 911 days. That helped get the Patriot Act passed without most of the Congresscritters reading it.

    And like the lead FBI guy said at the press conference, ‘someone knows who the bomber was’. He was of course already trying to cover for disappearing the second bomber. So I will ask like he did. All you security people out there who know who was really responsible, we are waiting to hear from you.

  • Boston Marathon Perps? Mossad, Mossad, Mossad

    Apr 17 2013
    http://xbjllb.typepad.com/blog/2013/04/boston-marathon-perps-mossad-mossad-mossad.html

    Pulled back after a long absence, this blog will only deal with matters of utmost national security, of which the truth will probably never be known.

    Know first that I’m the only guy on the net FIGHTING for a decade PLUS all the “Israel/Mossad pulled 9-11” idiots, and they are TRULY idiots, because Israel and Mossad would have NEVER trusted a Bush and his Saudi pals farther than they could have thrown them. They DID document 9-11, to cover their own asses, to be sure, but that was the extent of it. EVERY attempt to warn the US, diplomatic, back channel, even to national news media was rebuffed at the highest levels, so they knew it was a Bush false flag op.

    But that’s then, not now, and we’re talking about Boston. No matter what comes out, no matter what bullshit the mass media deals, Mossad pulled Boston. And here’s why:

    1. America’s entire attention is on the fat putz in North Korea. Bush II-era CIA killed his daddy, and instead of making him more docile, it had exactly the opposite effect. Rightly so is full US attention on nutcase paranoid VENGEFUL Kim Jong-un.

    2. THIS makes nutcase paranoid Israel angry. ESPECIALLY after Obama made his trip there to make peace with them and promise a lot of things America will NEVER deliver to gain time. Time is Israel’s greatest enemy, and America’s greatest friend. Through demographics alone, the “State” or “Nation” or GOVERNMENT/MILITARY of Israel, NOT THE JEWISH PEOPLE THEMSELVES, but the COUNTRY, WILL be wiped off the face of the planet by the sands of time, which is REALLY what Armendinejad was quoting. John McLaughlin and Zionist Mort Zuckerman said the same exact thing: “The Palestinian “Problem” will be solved by demographics”.

    Meaning: with every Palestinian reproducing at a 10-1 rate over the Jews, all but a small handful will have emigrated/FLED to America and Europe within 10 years. This was CONFIRMED by the CIA and FIFTEEN other US letter agencies. There will be no COUNTRY of Israel; there will only be Palestine and woe to the Jews who refuse to leave.

    And paranoid nutcase Israel knows this. And wants one thing and one thing only: For the US to wipe IRAN off the face of the map.

    The ISRAELI GOVERNMENT does not want a two-state solution; they do NOT want MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction) with Iran; they want Iran wiped off the face of the map and PRONTO and NOTHING ELSE.

    They do not CARE that it would cause NUCLEAR WWIII between China and the US. That, they don’t give a flying fuck about. All they care about in their paranoia is that Big Daddy US takes care of their enemies for them.

    And so they are MOST UNHAPPY about recent developments in North Korea, which takes focus off THEIR unholy war with Islam.

    So, time for the Boston Marathon and to “REMIND” the US that the “true” “real” “enemy” is Islamic terrorism and not the fat putz in North Korea.

    Who benefits? Israel, that’s who. NO one else.

    3. When assholes like this pull shit, they always think no one will figure out their awesome cleverness. They often try to kill two birds with one stone, thinking no one will notice, make links, and draw conclusions.

    WHY was the attack on Boston and not another American city?

    Couldn’t be more simple, or arrogant, or INCRIMINATING.

    The Prior Pope did everything he could to head off “Holy” “war” with Islam. At least as far as Catholicism was concerned. Didn’t have too much an effect on southern militant right wing christianism in the US, but he did kiss a Koran. Which caused the Israeli powers-that-be to vent their collective spleen.

    So, Judaism Israeli-style and Catholicism not getting along too well. Not well at all.

    What is significant about Boston, the city of Boston in the US? THINK.

    Just about the single MOST CATHOLIC CITY in the country in the single most CATHOLIC STATE in the country.

    Mossad didn’t just attack America when they attacked Boston; they attacked Catholicism.

    And they thought no one would ever figure it out. Can’t you see the geniuses around their table, talking about what city to hit and why?

    4. The attack was more TIMID and symbolic than anything. 2 out of 4 bombs DIDN’T go off ON PURPOSE; this to keep people thinking “What if?”. REAL Islamic terrorists want revenge and blood. Furthermore, explosions that large and only 3 deaths? The entire op was more like a Hollywood STUNT gone wrong. In other words, IT WAS NOT DESIGNED FOR MASS CASUALTIES. This alone tells you it was from a “friend” and “ally”, not a TRUE enemy.

    5. After the recent Israel trip, our Intel agencies would have possibly releaxed a bit watching Mossad. Dumb, especially after they’d infiltrated the Secret Service in an Obama assassination attempt which was found out in time and the perp dealt with.

    Mossad. Mossad. Mossad.

    And don’t think Obama doesn’t know it. And isn’t talking DIRECTLY about them when he says the perps will not escape JUSTICE.

    You and I might never hear about it. But rest assured. It will be taken care off.

    P.S. About that dark-skinned foreign guy running away from the scene with blood on him?

    What would YOU do if you were a US, or worse-yet, a Moslem TOURIST at the scene of that explosion to the point you were, yourself, injured. Would YOU hang around?

    Or would you hightail it out of there as fast as you could run, KNOWING you were likely to be instantly blamed and torn apart by a raging mob? As often happens in foreign countries.

    Expect that bit of investigation to go NOWHERE.

    Mossad. Mossad. Mossad.

    • Interesting that we see someone attacking the Israeli intelligence whilst trumping up Catholicism. We all know that the hierarchy of the Catholic Church is behind all the trouble in the World right now and this final crusade in the Middle East. What this article fails to tell you is that Israel sings to the tune of Jesuit trained King Juan Carlos of Spain, the Protector of the Holy Sites of the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem. They forget to tell you that Israel’s power is Jesuit trained Shimon Peres. They fail to tell you that Peres and friends are Sabbatean Frankist hofjuden who are servants to the Papacy. Hows about how the Papacy is is anti-Christian led by the anti-Christ called the Pope who right now is a Jesuit soldier. The Papacy detests Torah Israelites and so it uses its Sabbatean Frankist blasphemous Talmudic swines to do its dirty work which thus results in people wrongly blaming the Israelites of the Bible. Every time someone attacks exposers of the Vatican you find they will be anti-Zionists who are Roman Catholic.

  • Father Of Boston Suspects: US Security Services Set Up My Sons

    Steve Watson
    April 19, 2013
    http://www.infowars.com/father-of-boston-suspects-us-security-services-set-up-my-sons/

    The father of the two suspects in the Boston bombing, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, has told Russian and Western media that he believes his sons have been framed by US intelligence.

    A report from the Russian agency Interfax says that a correspondent spoke with Anzor Tsarnaev, who resides in the southern Russian republic of Dagestan.

    From the Interfax report:

    “I learned about the incident from TV. My opinion is: the special services have framed my children, because they are practicing Muslims. Why did they kill Tamerlan? He was supposed to be caught alive. The younger is on the run now. He was a sophomore at a medical school in the U.S. We expected him to come home for vacation. Now I don’t know what’s going to happen. Tell you once again: I believe special services have framed my children.”

    Reports on Twitter also claim that Anzor has said that “all hell will break loose,” if his remaining son, who is currently on the run in a suburb of Boston, is killed.

    DC Breaking Local News Weather Sports FOX 5 WTTG

    The AP reports that the father of the suspects also spoke with their own reporters. During a short conversation Anzor Tsarnaev was said to have told the reporters that his children were ‘true angels’. He also said that he has two more daughters who live in New York.

    He described his younger son as “an intelligent boy” who was studying medicine, and said that both his children are innocent.

    “They were set up, they were set up!” he exclaimed. “I saw it on television; they killed my older son Tamerlan.”

    The father is then said to have become more agitated and abruptly ended the call angrily, saying, “Leave me alone, my son’s been killed.”

  • Bill O’Reilly Attacks Alex Jones and Infowars for Daring to Ask Questions About Boston Bomber Narrative

    Another example of desperate flaying on the part of a dinosaur media as it tries to remain relevant

    April 19, 2013
    http://www.infowars.com/bill-oreilly-attacks-alex-jones-and-infowars-for-daring-to-ask-questions-about-boston-bomber-narrative/

    Fox resident blowhard Bill O’Reilly and correspondent Juliet Huddy have attacked Alex Jones and Infowars.com reporter Dan Bidondi. For the two Fox News talking heads it is apparently a serious crime to quiz Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick about the false flag attack in Boston on Monday. It is impermissible to call into question the validity of the official narrative now coagulating around the event. It is forbidden to deviate from the establishment’s script.

    Huddy dismissed Jones and Bidondi as “idiots” and the accused sexual predator O’Reilly – who has strongly condemned the First Amendment in the past and has shilled for mass murder in Iraq and Afghanistan – made his disgust manifestly apparent, as usual. Both displayed contempt for the internet and alternative media, a quite natural reaction from two irrelevant teleprompter readers. Fox News in particular and the rest of the bloated script-reading dinosaur media in general are seriously threatened by free expression and news reportage on the web.

    O’Reilly and his guest also complained about Infowars.com commentary concerning a Family Guy episode that sickeningly lampooned mass murder at the Boston Marathon. The episode also cast character Peter Griffin as a ludicrously stereotypical Arab terrorist in a fez. For O’Reilly and Ms. Huddy, it is more reprehensible for commentators to attach social and political significance to the cartoon than for Fox News to produce the demeaning and insensitive cartoon in the first place.

    O’Reilly’s “pinhead” commentary is merely another example of desperate flaying on the part of a dinosaur media as it attempts to stay relevant and keep the faltering attention of its geriatric viewership.

  • Suspect’s Twitter Account Discovered: Contains 9/11 Truth Comments

    People who know Dzhokhar Tsarnaev say it is impossible that he would commit an act of terror

    Steve Watson
    April 19, 2013
    http://www.infowars.com/suspects-twitter-account-discovered-contains-911-truth-comments/

    Gawker.com has uncovered a Twitter account for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (suspect number 2), that contains many normal looking tweets.

    On the day of the bombing Tsarnaev appears to have tweeted: “Ain’t no love in the heart of the city, stay safe people.”

    It appears he is also interested in or training as a lifeguard and recently tweeted “i didn’t become a lifeguard to just chill and get paid, i do it for the people, saving lives brings me joy #lifeguardoftheyear”

    In another tweet, he commented on the 9/11 attacks, writing “Idk why it’s hard for many of you to accept that 9/11 was an inside job, I mean I guess fuck the facts y’all are some real #patriots #gethip”.

    Other people who know Tsarnaev have expressed extreme doubt that he carried out the bombing.

    A user named “Trippin No L’ 4/20″ who claims to know Tsarnaev said he was shocked: “I can’t believe this jizz was a cool cat at my crib daily- this shit is to wild for me- guess you really don’t kno niggas nowadays.” he tweeted.

    Another wrote that he didn’t think he was a suspect: “Anyone who believes this BULLLSHITT about Jahar is Fuckinnnnn cooked. He’s the last dude to be harming anyone or anything.”

    A user with the moniker @ChinksMcGee wrote: “I never would have thought that someone that smoked as much weed as Jahar would be on the News for terrorism.”

  • Did Alleged Boston Bombing Terrorist Post al-Qaeda Video on His Youtube?

    Kurt Nimmo
    April 19, 2013
    http://www.infowars.com/did-alleged-boston-bombing-terrorist-post-al-qaeda-video-on-his-youtube/

    Editor’s note: We are not claiming the man in the video is Tamerlan Tsarnaev. We are saying this video appeared on his Youtube account.

    The alleged terrorist, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, killed by police last night, is said to have posted the video below on Youtube. According to an email sent to Infowars.com, the video was pulled from the popular video hosting site, but subsequently reposted to Internet Archive, here.

    We do not speak Chechen at Infowars.com, so we are not sure what is being said in the video. However, the video has all the hallmarks of an al-Qaeda production, including the flag in the background resembling the al-Qaeda flag.

    If the video below indeed appeared on Tsarnaev’s Youtube account, we can expect the official narrative to claim the Boston bombing to be an al-Qaeda attack with all the political ramifications that entails, including undoubtedly an aggressive expansion of the police state in the U.S. and a continuation of the war posture abroad. It will likely also serve as an excuse to expand military action in Africa where, we are reminded, al-Qaeda is expanding operations, particularly in Mali.

  • “Contractors” at Boston Marathon Stood Near Bomb, Left Before Detonation

    Seen across street after blasts talking with FBI bomb squad. Who were they? What were they and the FBI doing?

    Tony Cartalucci
    April 19, 2013
    http://www.infowars.com/contractors-at-boston-marathon-stood-near-bomb-left-before-detonation/

    What appear to be private contractors, wearing unmarked, matching uniforms and operating an unmarked SUV affixed with communication equipment near the finish line of the Boston Marathon shortly after the bomb blasts – can be seen beforehand, standing and waiting just meters away from where the first bomb was detonated.

    The contractor-types had moved away from the bomb’s location before it detonated, and could be seen just across the street using communication equipment and waiting for similar dressed and equipped individuals to show up after the blasts.


    Image: An already widely distributed photo showing the contractor-types on the bottom left, just left of where the bomb was placed and detonated. The men are wearing matching, unmarked uniforms, large black bags, and appear to be waiting, separately, and “behind” the rest of the crowd. In the upper left corner, a wooden structure forming one half of a temporary photography “bridge” over the finish line can be seen and serves as a useful reference when establishing the contractor-types’ position in other photos.


    Image: After the explosion, two of the contractors seen by the wall next to the bomb, appear across the street, both using communication equipment. This photo too has been distributed and enlarged many times across the Internet. (click to enlarge)


    Image: After the explosion, two of the contractors seen by the wall next to the bomb, appear across the street, both using communication equipment. This photo too has been distributed and enlarged many times across the Internet. (click to enlarge)


    Image: An unmarked SUV with a considerable amount of communication gear on the roof appears, surrounded by identically dressed men. The vehicle parks near the bleachers. (click to enlarge)


    Image: Event staff and contractors both above and below the bleachers begin tearing up the skirting and appear to be looking for something or retrieving something while casualties are still being treated and evacuated across the street. (click to enlarge)

    The men, numbering between 6-8 then begin tearing up the skirting around temporary bleachers erected for the event, opposite the explosion, before taping it off. Then, what appears to be an FBI bomb squad truck pulls up directly behind the contractor-types’ SUV, with a woman clearly wearing the letters F.B.I. on her tactical vest emerging and speaking with the contractor-types. Together they disappear from the scene, leaving their vehicles behind.


    Image: What appears to be an FBI bomb squad truck pulls in, with a woman wearing what is clearly the letters F.B.I. on her vest. She talks with two contractors while it appears a third is partially in the truck’s right-hand side. Also note that the area contractors and event staff tore up, is now taped off. (click to enlarge)


    Image: The FBI truck and contractor SUV sit seemingly abandoned – neither the FBI agent, nor the contractors can be seen. What they did, or where they went remains so far, unknown. (click to enlarge)

    It should be noted, that with the exception of the contractor-types, all other responders at the scene, including the FBI agent, can be clearly identified, from police to the fire department, to medics and even individuals wearing vests with “B.A.A. Physician” written on them. It should also be noted that no other uniformed individuals can be seen standing near the bomb site aside from the contractor-types.

    These men were unidentified, professional contractors apparently augmenting public servants at the Boston Marathon, present before and after the bomb blasts in the direct vicinity of the incident. After the blasts, whether it was their intended function or not, they appeared to be searching for something under the bleachers before being joined by what appears to be the FBI bomb squad. The FBI and the city of Boston has so far categorically failed to provide any information on these highly suspicious individuals.

    Questions That Must be Answered

    Several questions must be answered by the FBI, leading the investigation on behalf of we, the American people. The first question is who these men were, with large, black bags in the direct vicinity of where a bomb would detonate, moving away before the blast, and appearing directly across the road afterward. Who hired them and what was their function? Why were they moving amongst the crowd in a semi-covert fashion when all other public servants present were wearing proper uniforms and clearly identified? Did police, firefighters, event organizers, and medics know these men were present and what they were doing?

    Why did it appear that the FBI was fully aware of their presence, and in fact working with them, specifically with what looks like a bomb squad unit? Were these contractors specialists in explosives, and if so, what is the significance that at least two of them were spotted just meters from where the blast occurred?

    Why These Questions Demand Answers

    The checkered, frightening history (see: FBI’s History of Handing “Terror Suspects” Live Explosives) of the FBI’s involvement in fomenting false terror attacks, and even presiding over attacks that succeeded in maiming and killing innocent people, should call into question their presence or involvement at any public event, especially when seen associating with unidentified, semi-clandestine organizations that appear to be private contractors.

    Private contractors as well, do not answer or work for the public, but rather the highest bidder. Private contractors, most notably Blackwater and its various incarnations have operated both domestically and abroad, committing obscene crimes and atrocities with seemingly absolute impunity. The term “defense contractor” is in fact a euphemism for mercenary, and has no place in a civilized, democratic world, no matter what their alleged mission statement may claim.

    That both of these nefarious entities were present and cooperating in the direct vicinity of the Boston bombings, with at least two contractors standing just meters away from where the bomb actually went off, raises a number of possibilities and concerns. A drill may have been being conducted, though the FBI and city officials have denied this. Or, a threat may have been communicated to event organizers ahead of time, which prompted the inclusion of “auxiliary” security, though again, both the FBI and the city of Boston deny receiving any information prior to the bombings. Whichever contracting firm this may have been, may just have wanted to swindle Boston’s taxpayers for an easy payday, and coincidentally found itself in the middle of extraordinary circumstances.

    However, alarming suspicion is raised when the FBI makes no mention of an organization it was clearly coordinating with, particularly in terms of bombs and explosives before and after the incident, considering the nature of the attack. When an already dubious organization attempts to obfuscate the facts of any given event, it is the right and responsibility of legitimate law enforcement, public representatives and the citizenry itself to demand and get answers. If we are not persistent, with the FBI’s bizarre behavior over the past few days, including inexplicably cancelled and suspiciously rushed press conferences, and now what appears to be a Hollywood ending for the case, we may never get those answers.

  • Obama Vows U.S. Probe to Find Motives for Boston Bombing

    By Lisa Lerer & Julie Hirschfeld Davis – Apr 20, 2013 6:08 PM GMT
    http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-04-20/obama-vows-federal-probe-to-find-reasons-behind-boston-bombing.html

    Channeling the nation’s relief, President Barack Obama said the capture of the surviving Boston Marathon bombing suspect capped an “important chapter of this tragedy” while spurring a search into the motives and potential terrorist links behind the blasts.

    “All in all, this has been a tough week, but we’ve seen the character of our country once more,” Obama said at the White House in a nighttime statement after a day of staying publicly silent as an almost 24-hour manhunt unfolded.

    The capture yesterday of Dzhokar Tsarnaev in Watertown, Massachusetts, shortly before the president spoke left “many unanswered questions,” Obama said. While cautioning against a “rush to judgment,” he said the investigation will seek to find out why two young men who studied in the U.S. would turn to such violence.

    “The families of those killed so senselessly deserve answers,” Obama said, as do “the wounded — some of whom now have to learn how to stand and walk and live again.”

    Tsarnaev, 19, was taken into custody following a manhunt that paralyzed Boston and its suburbs for much of the day. His older brother, Tamerlan, 26, died in a confrontation with police in Watertown the previous night after the shooting death of a Massachusetts Institute of Technology campus officer. The brothers had been pursued as the suspects in the April 15 bombings that killed three people and injured more than 170.
    FBI Briefing

    “Whatever hateful agenda drove these men to such heinous acts will not — cannot — prevail,” Obama said. “Whatever they thought they could ultimately achieve, they’ve already failed.”

    The president learned of the capture while watching television in the White House residential area, then went to the Oval Office, where he received a briefing call from FBI Director Robert Mueller.

    U.S. House Speaker John Boehner said “the thanks of a grateful nation” was going to “every single federal, state, and local law enforcement official who went above and beyond to apprehend” the younger Tsarnaev.

    “It was a job well done under trying circumstances, to say the least,” the Ohio Republican said in a statement from Washington.

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, said in a statement from Louisville that, “We have marveled at the coordination, skill, and bravery of military, intelligence, and law enforcement officials at every level — from federal agents to suburban beat cops to the campus police officer at MIT who gave his life in the line of duty.”
    Texas Explosion

    Last night’s capture culminated an extraordinary week of anxiety and rapid-fire developments that began with the bombings near the marathon’s finish line and ended with Tsarnaev found hiding in a boat in a suburban backyard.

    In between, the discovery of ricin-laced letters sent to officials in Washington — including Obama — set the nation’s capital on edge, and the small town of West, Texas, suffered devastation with an April 17 fertilizer-plant explosion that killed at least 14 people and injured at least 200.

    Obama mentioned that blast during his White House statement and moments later declared a state of emergency in Texas, granting federal aid to supplement state and local resources.

    Even as congressional leaders joined Obama in responding with elation and praise for law enforcement following Tsarnaev’s capture, the potential political ripple effects of the Boston bombings for his presidency and legislative agenda began to reverberate.
    Prosecuting Tsarnaev

    Lawmakers said they would turn a fresh focus to combating homegrown terrorism in the days to come, raised questions about how the interrogation and prosecution of Tsarnaev should be handled, and signaled a more difficult road ahead for Obama’s push to rewrite U.S. immigration laws.

    The Tsarnaev brothers, who lived in Cambridge, came to the U.S. from the former Soviet Union about a decade ago. They are ethnic Chechens whose father lives in Russia.

    Lawmakers warned that the Boston bombings indicated the potency of the threat of homegrown terrorism, vowing to scrutinize it for clues on how to prevent future such events.

    “While we have made it more difficult for terrorists to carry out attacks from overseas, the attack on the Boston Marathon is indicative of the shift in terrorists’ tactics in recent years to inspire people who are living in the United States to strike,” said Republican Representative Michael McCaul of Texas, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee. “While several plots of this nature have been thwarted, this is the first to succeed.”
    Pending Questions

    McCaul said his panel would ask in the coming weeks “how this happened, and how we can prevent it from happening again.”

    Throughout the hunt, Obama and Vice President Joe Biden received regular briefings from top officials in Washington and Boston. The president spoke on the phone yesterday with Russian President Vladimir Putin about the investigation.

    Earlier in the day, Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Russia had been “very attentively watching” the developments.

    U.S. authorities haven’t yet found evidence that the suspects were connected to other individuals or groups, according to a person briefed on the investigation who asked not to be identified to discuss the probe.

    The saga demonstrates the pressing need for U.S. law enforcement to maintain robust intelligence and counterterrorism programs at the state and local levels, said Republican Representative Peter King of New York.
    Islamist ‘Threat’

    “The fact that these terrorists were from overseas, living legally in our country for a period of time, and the fact that there was no federal intelligence or chatter prior to the marathon bombings demonstrates once again the Islamist terrorist threat to our country from within our borders,” said King, the chairman of the Homeland Security panel that oversees counterterrorism and intelligence.

    “As has been demonstrated in recent years there is a significant terrorist threat from people living within our country under the radar screen,” he said.

    King, along with Republican Senators John McCain of Arizona, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, released a joint statement today encouraging the Obama administration to treat Tsarnaev as a “potential enemy combatant,” depriving him of the rights given U.S. law enforcement suspects in custody, in order to learn more about possible future attacks.
    48 Hours

    “We have concerns that limiting this investigation to 48 hours, and exclusively relying on the public safety exception to Miranda, could very well be a national security mistake,” they wrote in a statement. “It could severely limit our ability to gather critical information about future attacks from this suspect.”

    The Obama administration has not classified Tsarnaev, a U.S. citizen, as an enemy combatant. However, they’ve also opted against reading him the Miranda warning that gives suspects a chance to consult a lawyer before answering questions, according to a Justice Department official.

    The administration invoked a public-safety exception that lets law enforcement conduct limited questioning and allows the introduction of statements from those interviews into evidence before reading him the Miranda warning that gives suspects a chance to consult a lawyer before answering questions, said the official, who asked not to be identified because the move wasn’t announced.
    Immigration Issue

    Some critics of a far-reaching bipartisan effort to revamp U.S. immigration laws hinted that the Boston case could complicate the push.

    “Given the events of this week, it is important for us to understand the gaps and loopholes in our immigration system,” said Republican Senator Charles Grassley of Iowa, who has opposed previous efforts to offer legal status to undocumented immigrants living in the U.S., as the measure would do.

    “While we don’t yet know the immigration status of people who have terrorized the communities of Massachusetts,” Grassley said at a hearing on Capitol Hill, it could “shed light on the weaknesses of our system.”

    Tamerlan Tsarnaev was a legal resident of the U.S. while his brother, Dzhokar Tsarnaev, became a naturalized citizen on Sept. 11, 2012, according to a government official briefed on the matter who asked not to be identified because the investigation was in progress.

    Democratic proponents of the immigration measure urged lawmakers not to allow the situation in Boston to derail it. People shouldn’t “jump to conclusions” and “conflate” the events in Boston with the immigration rewrite proposal, said Senator Charles Schumer of New York.

    The suspect was cornered and then arrested. But what is the real story? The real story is the FBI has a history of using informants to stir up mental deficients into bombing targets with fake bombs. That is part of history. Now the mother of the suspects has said that her son has been followed by the FBI for at least three years.

    A grusome picture of the suspected Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev has emerged online. It is not known who leaked the picture, but the hospital where he was taken has denied responsibility, with a spokesperson saying that the image “was not taken during the medical procedures or when the medical team had control of the body.”

    The graphic photo shows gunshot wounds to Tsarnaev’s body as well as a large thorocotomy incision on his chest. Additionally, portions of Tsarnaev’s face and right shoulder reflect a discoloration.

  • Boston marathon bombs: Tamerlan Tsarnaev ‘interviewed by FBI in 2011’

    The FBI interviewed one of the Boston marathon bombing suspects in 2011 at the request of a foreign government, reports have claimed.

    Sarah Titterton and agencies
    3:59AM BST 20 Apr 2013
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/10007327/Boston-marathon-bombs-Tamerlan-Tsarnaev-interviewed-by-FBI-in-2011.html

    Officials told the Associated Press, Reuters and CNN that Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who died in a shootout with police outside Boston on Friday morning, was interviewed by federal officers.

    The matter was closed when it did not produce any incriminating information.

    One official told AP that the FBI shared its information with the foreign government. The official did not say what country made the request about Tamerlan Tsarnaev or why.

    The 26-year-old’s younger brother Dzhokhar, also a suspect in Monday’s bombings that killed three people and wounded scores more, has been taken into custody after a dramatic confrontation with police.

    Tamerlan Tsarnaev died of bullet wounds and injuries from explosives strapped to his body, a hospital doctor said.

    Boston police said more than 200 rounds of gunfire were exchanged with the brothers early Friday morning shortly before Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s death, and that the two men had hurled improvised explosive devices and handmade hand grenades at officers.

    It has been widely reproted that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev drove over his brother’s body as he fled police during that incident.

    The brothers had not previously been on the radar as possible militants, US government officials said.

    On Friday night, while the hunt for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was still ongoing, US President Barack Obama spoke with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, by telephone.

    During the conversation, Mr Obama praised the “close cooperation that the United States has received from Russia on counter-terrorism, including in the wake of the Boston attack,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said in a written statement.

    There were hints earlier in the day that Russian officials were helping American investigators research the brothers.

    CNN reported that one interview in Dagestan with Tsarnaev’s father ended when Russian authorities showed up to question him.

  • Full Extent of FBI Role in Boston Bombing Will Never Be Known

    FBI cooked the bomb in 1993 WTC bombing but this fact is omitted from the official narrative.

    Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, brother of the dead FBI asset Tamerlan Tsarnaev, is now an enemy combatant. Due to this, the role the FBI played in the deadly bombing will never come to light.

    “Now that the suspect is in custody, the last thing we should want is for him to remain silent,” said senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain after Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was captured last night in Watertown, Massachusetts. “It is absolutely vital the suspect be questioned for intelligence gathering purposes. We need to know about any possible future attacks which could take additional American lives. The least of our worries is a criminal trial which will likely be held years from now.”

    “Our goal at this critical juncture should be to gather intelligence and protect our nation from further attacks. We remain under threat from radical Islam and we hope the Obama Administration will seriously consider the enemy combatant option.”

    The Obama administration has decided to follow a 2010 memorandum from the Justice Department. It strikes the customary Miranda warning and allows the government to question suspected terrorists and deny legal representation and Fifth Amendment protection. “The exception allows agents to ask questions reasonably prompted by an immediate concern for the public’s safety,” the Washington Post reports today. “Additionally, it says that in ‘exceptional’ cases, agents may conclude that continued ‘unwarned’ investigation is warranted.”

    After Zubeidat K. Tsarnaeva, the mother of Boston bombing suspects Dzhokar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, said Friday that her eldest son Tamerlan was under the control of the FBI, the agency responded by stating that it had “interviewed” him at the behest of the Russian government. Russia suspected Tsarnaeva of being a Chechen terrorist.

    “In response to this 2011 request, the FBI checked U.S. government databases and other information to look for such things as derogatory telephone communications, possible use of online sites associated with the promotion of radical activity, associations with other persons of interest, travel history and plans, and education history,” the FBI said in a statement. “The FBI also interviewed Tamerlan Tsarnaev and family members. The FBI did not find any terrorism activity, domestic or foreign, and those results were provided to the foreign government in the summer of 2011. The FBI requested but did not receive more specific or additional information from the foreign government.”

    Considering the FBI’s track record in setting up and busting would-be terrorists, this explanation is suspect. The case will be handled like the 1993 World Trade Center bombing that killed six people and injured over a thousand. Recordings released by the New York Times revealed that the FBI cooked the bomb used in the attack, but this key fact is now omitted from the official narrative on the bombing.

    “The implications are of course, with the FBI’s current nationwide stable of patsies being trained, directed, and provided material support to carry out attacks the FBI then ‘foils,’ is at any given moment, any one of these operations can be switched ‘live’ just as in 1993,” writes Tony Cartalucci. “The resulting carnage can then be used to manipulate public opinion just as it was in 1993, 2001, on 7/7 in London, and in Madrid, Spain in 2004.”

    The FBI’s highly suspicious contact with Tsarnaeva will be underplayed in the short term and omitted in the long term as the government’s official narrative takes its final mythological shape and the war on manufactured terror is reinvigorated.

    Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been cosigned the status of enemy combatant as delineated under the Military Commissions Act. Due to this, we will never know the full extent of the FBI’s role in killing three people and injuring 183 in Boston on April 15, 2013.

    Rare TV NEWS report about WTC bombing FBI Foreknowledge

  • FBI Casting Set Stage for Boston Marathon Bombing, Shootout, Charade

    Tony Cartalucci
    April 20, 2013
    http://www.infowars.com/fbi-casting-set-stage-for-boston-marathon-bombing-shootout-charade/

    Update: CBS reveals in their report, “CBS News: FBI Interviewed Tamerlan Tsarnaev 2 Years Ago,” that the FBI initially attempted to deny any contact prior to the Boston bombings with slain suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev. It was only after Russia’s RT publicly pursued the story that the FBI finally admitted officially it had.

    The implications are that the FBI knows Russia both possesses information on the case and is prepared to go public with it. For those involved in America’s terror racket, now would be a good time to divest. For those involved specifically in the Boston Marathon bombing, now would be a good time to come forward with information. Any and all involved, in whatever capacity, wittingly or unwittingly, stand to become scapegoats in order to save the FBI, DHS, TSA, and other federal agencies clearly engaged in a massive coverup.

    The Boston Police and a slew of “reputable” mainstream media outlets had reported earlier that the two suspects involved in a deadly shootout near Boston and suspected to be involved in the Boston bombings were, missing Brown University student Sunil Tripathi, and Mike Mulugeta. The International Business Times reported in their article, “Boston Marathon Bombing: Indian-Origin Sunil Tripathi One of Alleged Suspects,” that:

    Boston police on Friday revealed the names of two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing, one of whom is an Indian origin person, Sunil Tripathi, reported CBS-affiliated television station WFSB.

    The other suspect named in the case is Mike Mulugeta. On Friday morning, it was reported that police arrested one of them.

    Where did CBS hear that “Boston police revealed” this information? CBS News would then blame the entire shift in narrative on “social media” and in particular, Reddit. Sunil Tripathi mysteriously disappeared in mid-March of 2013, leaving his personal items in his room. The FBI had been involved in Tripathi’s case, as reported by New York Daily News in their article, “F.B.I. joins search for Brown University student Sunil Tripathi, who has been missing for more than a week,” which reported:

    The F.B.I has joined the search for a depressed and possibly suicidal Brown University student, who has been missing for more than a week, and have expanded their area of interest to the Northeast corridor.

    Sunil Tripathi, 22, was last seen on the Providence, R.I. campus around 11 a.m. on Saturday, March 16. His cell phone, wallet, ID cards and bicycle – his main form of transportation – were found in the apartment he shared with other Brown University students.

    It is not uncommon for the FBI to aid in searches for missing people, especially if the search involves multiple states. However, that this false lead, and the allegedly “confirmed” identity of the Boston bombing suspects, both involved cases the FBI was working on prior to the Boston bombings and the subsequent deadly shootout and manhunt, raises immense suspicion. Here’s why.

    Suspects Were on FBI Radar for Years

    The Wall Street Journal now reports that the FBI had interviewed at least one of the two Boston bombing suspects as early as 2011. In their article, “Renewed Fears About Homegrown Terror Threat,” WSJ reports that:

    The Federal Bureau of Investigation interviewed suspected marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev in 2011 at the request of the Russian government, but didn’t find evidence of suspicious activity and closed the case, an FBI official said Friday.

    The fact that the FBI spoke with Mr. Tsarnaev, who was killed Friday morning in a firefight with authorities, is likely to become a focal point of the post mortem into how the attack was able to be carried out at the Boston Marathon. It also speaks to the challenge faced by authorities as terrorism morphs to some extent from the complex international plots of a decade ago to small-scale attacks carried out by individuals located within U.S.

    RT would report that the mother of the suspect claimed the FBI had been monitoring her sons ever since, and led them along “every step of the way.” In an article titled, “‘They were set up, FBI followed them for years’- Tsarnaevs’ mother to RT,” it stated of the suspects’ mother:

    But her biggest suspicion surrounding the case was the constant FBI surveillance she said her family was subjected to over the years. She is surprised that having been so stringent with the entire family, the FBI had no idea the sons were supposedly planning a terrorist act.

    Interestingly enough, the WSJ also stated that:

    The profile of the Boston bombing in many ways resembles a number of the recent foiled plots, a federal law-enforcement official said. They have been small with little or no intelligence chatter, and have involved suspects who have been in the U.S. for several years and appeared to have assimilated.

    What the WSJ categorically fails to mention is that these “foiled plots” were from start to finish engineered by the FBI itself, with suspects, just as Tsarnaevs’ mother had claimed of her sons, under “constant FBI surveillance,” and in fact led along every step of the way in the lead up to high-profile arrests. What is also subsequently left out by the WSJ is that during these undercover operations, real vehicles, weapons, and explosives are involved, and usually switched out for inert items right before the final attack and arrests are made.

    One thing the WSJ is absolutely correct about is that the FBI’s involvement prior to the attack will become “a focal point of the post mortem into how the attack was able to be carried out at the Boston Marathon.”

    While the WSJ offers nothing useful in examining that focal point, a look at the FBI’s “foiled plots” will reveal shocking implications about just how deeply the FBI may have been involved with these suspects before the bombing, shootout, and manhunt.

    FBI’s History of Handing “Terror Suspects” Weapons and Live Explosives

    In late September 2011, AFP reported that a man was charged with “planning to fly explosive-packed, remote controlled airplanes into the Pentagon and the Capitol in Washington.” In its report, “US man charged with Pentagon bomb plot,” AFP stated (emphasis added):

    During the alleged plot, undercover FBI agents posed as accomplices who supplied Ferdaus with one remote-controlled plane, C4 explosives, and small arms that he allegedly envisioned using in a simultaneous ground assault in Washington.

    However, ”the public was never in danger from the explosive devices, which were controlled by undercover FBI employees,” the FBI said.

    Ferdaus was arrested in Framingham, near Boston, immediately after putting the newly delivered weapons into a storage container, the FBI said.

    Authorities described Ferdaus as a physics graduate from Northeastern University who followed al-Qaeda and was committed to ”violent jihad” since early last year.

    In addition to explosives and “small arms,” the FBI also provided the suspect with grenades. According to FBI.gov in a release titled, “Massachusetts Man Charged with Plotting Attack on Pentagon and U.S. Capitol and Attempting to Provide Material Support to a Foreign Terrorist Organization,” it stated (emphasis added):

    Between May and September 2011, Ferdaus researched, ordered and acquired the necessary components for his attack plans, including one remote controlled aircraft (F-86 Sabre). This morning prior to his arrest, Ferdaus received from the UCs [undercover FBI employees] 25 pounds of (what he believed to be) C-4 explosives, six fully-automatic AK-47 assault rifles (machine guns) and grenades. In June 2011, Ferdaus rented a storage facility in Framingham, Mass., under a false name, to use to build his attack planes and maintain all his equipment.

    If bombs, guns, and grenades sound strikingly familiar to the arsenal allegedly wielded by the most recent “terror suspects” the FBI admits it was in contact with since at least as early as 2011, that is because it is – the standard terror-playset the FBI provides its patsies.

    In November 2010, a similar “plot” was engineered, then “disrupted,” also by the FBI – this time in Portland, Oregon. The so-called “Christmas Tree Bomber” attempted to remote detonate a van he believed was filled with explosives, provided by the FBI, before being arrested during a Christmas tree lighting ceremony at Pioneer Courthouse Square. The FBI’s official statement regarding the incident revealed that FBI agents had handled, even detonated live explosives with the entrapped suspect in Lincoln County in the lead up to the final failed bombing.

    The FBI’s official statement titled, “Oregon Resident Arrested in Plot to Bomb Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in Portland,” released by the U.S. Attorney’s Office on November 26, 2010 stated (emphasis added):

    According to the affidavit, on November 4, 2010, Mohamud and the undercover FBI operatives traveled to a remote location in Lincoln County, Ore., where they detonated a bomb concealed in a backpack as a trial run for the upcoming attack. Afterwards, on the drive back to Corvallis, undercover FBI operatives questioned Mohamud as to whether he was capable of looking at the bodies of those who would be killed in the upcoming attack in Portland. According to the affidavit, Mohamud responded, “I want whoever is attending that event to leave, to leave either dead or injured.”

    Upon returning to Corvallis that same day, the affidavit alleges that Mohamud recorded a video of himself with the undercover FBI operatives in which he read a written statement that offered a rationale for his bomb attack. On Nov. 18, 2010, undercover FBI operatives picked up Mohamud to travel to Portland in order to finalize the details of the attack.

    Earlier this evening, Mohamud was arrested after he attempted to remotely detonate what he believed to be explosives in a van that was parked near the Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland, the affidavit alleges.

    Yet another operation was carried out by the FBI in February 2012, where yet another otherwise incapable patsy was provided with live explosives in the lead up to what was ultimately a failed suicide bombing at the US Capitol. USA Today reported in their article, “FBI foils alleged suicide bomb attack on U.S. Capitol,” that (emphasis added):

    According to a counterterrorism official, El Khalifi “expressed interest in killing at least 30 people and considered targeting a building in Alexandria and a restaurant, synagogue and a place where military personnel gather in Washington before he settled on the Capitol after canvassing that area a couple of times,” the Associated Press writes. During the year-long investigation, El Khalifi detonated explosives at a quarry in the capital region with undercover operatives. He is not believed to be affiliated with al-Qaeda, officials said.

    The frightening trend of the FBI cultivating otherwise incapable “terror” suspects, providing them with and detonating real explosives, small arms and grenades before giving them inert or controlled devices to carry out attacks on public targets where mass casualties are averted only at the last possible moment, sets the stage for at the very least, incredible potential for catastrophic blunders, and at worst, false flag attacks.

    But does this mean the FBI is capable of turning such operations “live,” resulting in real terror attacks and loss of life? Has the FBI ever presided over “sting operations” that were actually carried out? The answer is yes.

    The FBI in fact was presiding over the terrorists who carried out the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. The role of the FBI leading up to the deadly attack would most likely have gone unreported had an FBI informant not taped his conversations with FBI agents after growing suspicious during the uncover operation. The New York Times in their article, “Tapes Depict Proposal to Thwart Bomb Used in Trade Center Blast,” reported:

    Law-enforcement officials were told that terrorists were building a bomb that was eventually used to blow up the World Trade Center, and they planned to thwart the plotters by secretly substituting harmless powder for the explosives, an informer said after the blast.

    The informer was to have helped the plotters build the bomb and supply the fake powder, but the plan was called off by an F.B.I. supervisor who had other ideas about how the informer, Emad A. Salem, should be used, the informer said.

    The account, which is given in the transcript of hundreds of hours of tape recordings Mr. Salem secretly made of his talks with law-enforcement agents, portrays the authorities as in a far better position than previously known to foil the Feb. 26 bombing of New York City’s tallest towers. The explosion left six people dead, more than 1,000 injured and damages in excess of half a billion dollars.

    Controlled Every Step of the Way
    RT has quoted the mother of the recent Boston bombing suspects as claiming of the FBI:

    They used to come [to our] home, they used to talk to me…they were telling me that he [the older, 26-y/o Tamerlan] was really an extremist leader and that they were afraid of him. They told me whatever information he is getting, he gets from these extremist sites… they were controlling him, they were controlling his every step…and now they say that this is a terrorist act!

    “They were controlling him, they were controlling his every step,” indeed. Posing as “extremist leaders” and leading witless patsies along, just as the FBI has done in every case regarding its previous “foiled plots,” and even successful plots, like the 1993 WTC attack, should shift America’s attention not to Chechnya or the “threat” of domestic terrorism, but the immense incompetence and/or criminality of the FBI.

    As even mainstream sources concede the FBI had some sort of relationship with the Boston bombing suspects before the attack, there will be two arguments made. One, that the FBI simply doesn’t have enough authority or resources to prevent “domestic terror” attacks, and needs more still.

    The other argument is that the FBI and other federal agencies have been behind every domestic terror attack or “foiled plot” for years, and constitutes the single greatest danger to the American people, both literally in terms of life and limb, and in terms of subverting and stripping away their liberty and dignity amidst a growing police state.

    In turn, this would require local law enforcement to cease all cooperation with the FBI, particularly with its Joint Terror Task Force (JTTF), raid local offices and make arrests where appropriate, and fold any agents who are willing and capable, into local and state agencies. In essence, the FBI should be dismantled from top to bottom, and an alternative put in its place.

    What is clear is that the Boston bombing suspects were contacted by the FBI at least as early as 2011. Between then and the attack, there is a gap where the FBI may or may not have been involved. While the FBI may have in fact been cultivating these suspects prior to the Boston bombing, they are now the very ones “investigating” the case, opening the door to the destruction of evidence, and ultimately a coverup.

    What’s more, there’s most likely several more of these operations being engineered right now by the FBI. If America is serious about stopping “the next Boston bombing,” the key is not issuing the FBI and its federal affiliates more authority and funding, but issuing local law enforcement warrants to raid FBI offices.

    While the people of Boston allegedly take to the streets to “celebrate” the capture of the remaining Boston bombing suspect, celebrations should turn to outrage as details emerge that yet another terror attack in America, which has claimed innocent lives, was the work not of cave dwelling militants abroad, but by the very people we foolishly entrust with our safety and security at home.

  • Boston Marathon explosions: Show us the evidence, says Toronto aunt of bombing suspects

    Aunt of bombing suspects “knew them as angels” and does not believe they were responsible for the attack.

    By: Wendy Gillis News reporter, Published on Fri Apr 19 2013
    http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2013/04/19/boston_marathon_explosions_show_us_the_evidence_says_toronto_aunt_of_bombing_suspects.html

    In the lobby of her Etobicoke apartment building, the aunt of the two Boston bombing suspects shouted one word over and over as reporters questioned her about her now-infamous nephews — one dead, the other leading police on a chase Friday that effectively shut down Boston.

    “Evidence,” Maret Tsarnaeva said repeatedly, her voice high with emotion. “I can’t lightly accept this kind of accusations without supporting evidence. Forgive me, but I cannot.”

    LIVE Updates on the Boston manhunt

    Who are the bombing the suspects

    Tsarnaeva, is aunt to Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, a 19-year-old who survived an overnight shootout and police chase, and his older brother Tamerlan, 26, who was killed in the shootout. The family is ethnically Chechen.

    Tsarnaeva had not spoken to the men in about five years, but said she “knew them as angels” and does not believe they were responsible for the attack.

    “I don’t know them in a way that they could be capable of this,” she said. She would not rule out the possibility that the photos showing the brothers at the scene had been staged.

    “I have to question everything. That’s my nature.”

    Many members of the family moved to the U.S. in the early 2000s. Dzhokhar arrived in 2002 with his parents, then Tamerlan came in 2003, with the suspects’ two sisters.

    Tsarnaeva, who says she had been a lawyer in Chechnya, claims to have helped with their refugee paperwork.

    Tamerlan had married what he described as “a good Christian girl” in the U.S., and had a 3-year-old child, she said.

    Tsarnaeva could not say what either nephew was doing recently, but it was confirmed Friday that Tamerlan had studied accounting at a community college but did not finish. Dzhokhar is a student at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth, numerous media reported Friday.

    As a Chechen, Tsarnaeva says she is accustomed to being set up by the police, and does not believe that the photos or the reports from the FBI are true.

    People should not just “swallow” everything the government is saying, she said.

    “Being a Chechen … you always have to watch your back,” she said.

    On Friday, Tsarnaeva called a hotline to ask for more evidence linking her nephews to the attack.

    “I said please, take that into account. Give evidence. Give at least evidence to family members. Because I will never accuse my relatives, my nephews, without having evidence.”

    The entire family is Muslim, though Tsarnaeva did not know how devout they were. In the last two years, however, Tamerlan had started praying five times a day, she said.

    She described both nephews as smart and athletic, saying Tamerlan had been an amateur boxer. He competed in the National Golden Gloves competition in 2009.

    Tsarnaeva said the boys’ father, her brother Anzor, was soft-hearted. He had recently moved to Russia.

    “I don’t know how he’s taking this,” she said.

    Other members of the suspects’ family were speaking out Friday; Tsarnaeva’s younger brother, Ruslan Tsarni, told reporters in Maryland that he was ashamed of his nephews, and that they were “losers” who couldn’t “settle themselves” in the U.S., according to numerous reports.

    Responding to her brother’s words, Tsarnaeva said Ruslan Tsarni had been expecting a lot of the men, especially Tamerlan, who had been his favourite.

    To her surviving nephew, Tsarnaeva said: “I just hope this is not true, because I don’t have evidence.”

    “If that is you, you take the blame…. You did it for some purpose. Explain it, take some responsibility. What else can I say?”

  • Next for Boston suspect: Five legal questions

    “No Miranda warning to be given” now, the DOJ official said. | Reuters

    By JOSH GERSTEIN | 4/19/13 10:06 PM EDT
    http://www.politico.com/story/2013/04/no-miranda-rights-for-now-for-bombing-suspect-90362.html?hp=f1

    With Dzhokhar Tsarnaev taken alive, the focus now turns to how the Obama administration is going to seek to bring the Boston Marathon bombing suspect to justice.

    Lawyers have already made one potentially critical decision: he hasn’t been read his Miranda rights, at least for now. This means that FBI investigators may have a shot at trying to question him about other potential plots he may be aware of and whether anyone other than his deceased brother was involved in Monday’s bombing or Thursday night’s crime spree.

    But if, for example, Tsarnaev’s injuries leave him too incapacitated through the weekend to be questioned, it might not matter that he didn’t get mirandized because the judge will read him his rights probably at his bedside on Monday.

    Meanwhile, a host of other questions are already bubbling up, from whether he’ll tried in civilian or military court to whether he’ll face the death penalty for crimes that include killing three people in the explosions and a police officer on the MIT campus.

    Here’s POLITICO’s guide to the five key questions—and what’s known about the answers—that are ahead.

    Why does the Miranda issue matter?

    After the Justice Department decided not to immediately read Tsarnaev his Miranda rights, a debate broke out among lawmakers, lawyers and political activists over whether the suspect, Dzhokar Tsarnaev, 19, should be prosecuted in a civilian criminal court or subjected to military interrogation — and over when and whether Tsarnaev should be told about his right to an attorney.

    “No Miranda warning to be given” now, a Justice official told POLITICO Friday night. “The government will be invoking the public safety exception.”

    That may increase the possibility that Tsarnaev will quickly offer up information about whether he and his brother, who was killed in a shootout Thursday night, acted alone in the bombings or whether they were directed, supported or trained by forces abroad.

    Beginning several hours before Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s capture, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) wrote on Twitter that the suspect ought to be placed in military custody.

    “If captured, I hope Administration will at least consider holding the Boston suspect as enemy combatant for intelligence gathering purposes,” Graham wrote Friday afternoon. “The last thing we may want to do is read Boston suspect Miranda Rights telling him to ‘remain silent.’”

    “The Law of War allows us to hold individual in this scenario as potential enemy combatant w/o Miranda warnings or appointment of counsel,” the senator added later in the evening. “I hope the Obama Administration will seriously consider this option….The goal is to gather intelligence and protect our nation which is under threat from radical Islam.”

    “NBC reporting Obama admin will treat terrorist as a ‘criminal’ and not enemy combatant,” former State Department official Liz Cheney wrote on Twitter Friday night. “Will Obama allow him to lawyer up?”

    The Center for Constitutional Rights condemned the decision in a statement: “The Miranda warnings were put in place because police officers were beating and torturing “confessions” out of people who hadn’t even been formally accused of a crime. We cannot afford to repeat our mistakes. If officials require suspects to incriminate themselves, they are making fair trials and due process merely option and not a requirement. To venture down that road again will make law enforcement accountable to no one.”

    How does the public safety exception work?

    The Obama administration appeared to be taking a middle course, holding off on advising Tsarnaev of his rights, but still directing him into the criminal justice system for prosecution.

    The Justice Department signaled that it planned to rely on a 1984 Supreme Court case that said a suspect’s statements can be used against him even if he was not immediately read his rights if police got the answers while asking questions aimed averting a threat to public safety.

    The precise contours of that exception in a terrorism case are not clear, although a judge upheld that exception in connection with questioning of the so-called “underwear bomber” on a Delta flight bound for Detroit on Christmas Day 2009.

    Still, some experts said holding off on reading Tsarnaev his rights was ill-advised, particularly since law enforcement officials declared that after the suspect’s arrest the threat to the public was over.

    ”The FBI is making a serious mistake by not giving him his Miranda warning….Let’s not give him any excuse to be able to successfully argue that his rights were denied,” Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz said on CNN.

    If a court found that Tsarnaev was not read his Miranda rights, the usual consequence would be that any statements he made prior to being read his rights could not be admitted at trial. However, prosecutors might not need such statements if they have overwhelming evidence of Tsarnaev’s guilt.

    During a news conference shortly after the suspect was captured, U.S. Attorney for Massachusetts Carmen Ortiz did not directly confirm that the suspect was not read his rights. However, she noted the law allows for exceptions. “There is a public-safety exemption in cases of national security and potential charges involving acts of terrorism,” Ortiz said.

    The American Civil Liberties Union said in a statement: “Every criminal defendant is entitled to be read Miranda rights. The public safety exception should be read narrowly. It applies only when there is a continued threat to public safety and is not an open-ended exception to the Miranda rule. Additionally, every criminal defendant has a right to be brought before a judge and to have access to counsel.”

    Will prosecutors seek the death penalty — and will Tsarnaev get it?

    Under federal law, there’s little doubt that Tsarnaev could be eligible for the death penalty. Using a weapon of mass destruction, such as a bomb, in an attack that results in death can lead to capital punishment.

    While it might seem a foregone conclusion that the federal government will seek the death penalty in such a high-profile case, and one stemming from terror spree that killed four and left more than 170 injured, that decision is less of a sure thing than many people would think.

    Ortiz indicated Friday that call was a long way off.

    “Before that kind of a decision is made, in terms of whether or not to seek the death penalty, you review all of the evidence and it’s a very thoughtful, long process that is engaged and it’s the attorney general of the Department of Justice that makes that final decision,” Ortiz said in response to a question at the news conference that followed Tsarnaev’s capture Friday night.

    As prosecutors consider whether to seek the death penalty in the case, they’ll consider aggravating and mitigating circumstances. Under federal law, attempting multiple murders, “heinous, cruel, or depraved” acts or those that are the product of “substantial planning and premeditation” can lead to the death penalty. However, Tsarnaev’s lawyers will be able to argue that his mental capacity was impaired, that he may have been under the “duress” of his elder brother, or that his participation on the offense was “relatively minor.”

    The prosecution might also enter into a plea bargain for a life sentence in order to avoid the risks of a trial, particularly if an insanity defense seems plausible.

    Tsarnaev won’t face the death penalty under state law because Massachusetts does not have capital punishment. That could also complicate the Justice Department’s thinking on the issue. Under Democratic administrations, the feds have generally been reluctant to pursue the death penalty in states which don’t have capital punishment. However, President George W. Bush’s administration did so.

    President Barack Obama supports the death penalty. Attorney General Eric Holder issued guidelines discouraging federal capital cases in states that don’t have the death penalty, but the Justice Department is currently pursuing such a case in Puerto Rico.

    Of course, prosecutors would also have to get a jury to unanimously agree that death and not life in prison was the correct penalty for the crimes.

    What kind of court will Tsarnaev be tried in and how soon will he show up there?

    When Ortiz said her office would “continue to evaluate and file our formal charges,” she also seemed to imply that Tsarnaev would face justice in a civilian federal court.

    At the moment, the debate over Tsarnaev’s Miranda rights may be moot because, according to police, he was severely injured and bleeding at the time he was captured. When answering a question about the public safety exemption, Ortiz added: “Right now, I believe though, the suspect has been taken to a hospital.”

    A joint FBI/CIA interrogation unit that Obama established to handle terrorism cases has been activated and is on the scene, the DOJ official added. “The high value detained interrogation group is on site,” the official said.

    Regardless of when or if Tsarnaev is Mirandized, if he asks for an attorney, questioning of him will be required to stop. Lawyers who attempt to question him or direct questioning of him once he asks for an attorney would be violating legal ethics and Justice Department policy.

    While some legal experts said Friday that Tsarnaev would likely make a court appearance by Monday, if investigators want more time to question him they could ask him to delay his presentation in court. Such waivers have been obtained in a series of recent terrorism cases, including that of Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad in 2010 and the ongoing prosecution of Osama bin Laden’s son-in-law, Sulaiman Abu Ghaith.

    At Tsarnaev’s initial appearance in court, a judge or magistrate will advise him of his rights and make sure he has access to a defense lawyer.

    In 2010, the Obama Administration floated the idea of legislation that would allow it to delay taking arrested terrorism suspects to court for about two weeks without getting any waiver from the person involved. However, the administration appeared to drop the idea a few months later, apparently satisfied that it had the flexibility it needed in existing law.

    Graham’s proposal that Tsarnaev be put in military custody faced one significant obstacle: the man reportedly became a U.S. citizen last year. That would preclude prosecuting him under the current military commissions law, since U.S. citizens are explicitly outside its jurisdiction.

    Whether Tsarnaev could legally be interrogated or detained by the military raises legal questions the Supreme Cout has never definitively addressed. Under President George W. Bush’s administration, U.S. citizen Jose Padilla was held in military custody as an enemy combatant for more than three-and-a-half years on suspicion he planned to detonate a radioactive “dirty” bomb in Chicago.

    The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit upheld Padilla’s detention in 2005, but after his lawyers asked the Supreme Court to take up the case, the Bush Administration had Padilla indicted on unrelated criminal charges in an apparent effort to avoid a definitive ruling on the issue of whether citizens can be detained. The Supreme Court eventually declined to consider the issue of Padilla’s military detention.

    Graham contends that a 1942 Supreme Court decision upholding a military trial for Nazi saboteurs who landed in Long Island during World War II authorizes the detention of Americans as enemy fighters. One of the men in the WWII case was a U.S. citizen.

    However, in a floor debate last year, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) argued that the justices never considered the right to hold an American arrested on U.S. soil as an enemy combatant. She also said holding an American in military custody could violate a 1971 law that says citizens can only be imprisoned or detained pursuant to a duly-passed law

    Another potential obstacle to military detention: It’s also unclear whether Tsarnaev is connected with any group related to the September 11, 2001 attacks or to the Taliban in Afghanistan. Those are affiliations which can render someone eligible for detention under the Authorization for Use of Military Force passed soon after the attacks.

  • Security theater moves to Act Two following arrest of Boston marathon bombing suspect

    Mike Adams
    April 20, 2013
    http://www.naturalnews.com/039996_security_theater_Boston_marathon_FBI_terror.html

    I’m trying to get a grip on the full spectacle of the police state theater we have all just witnessed in Boston. Where to begin?

    Do we begin with the “lockdown” order that forced 400,000+ Bostonites to stay off the streets and hide in their homes while nobody admits it’s actually martial law?

    Do we begin with the militarized masses of armed-up police rolling down the streets of Boston in bomb-proof assault vehicles, all in the hunt for one teenager? Click here for astonishing pictures of martial law in Boston.

    Or do we even attempt to examine the spectacle of the mainstream media’s agenda-scripted coverage of all this and its failure to try to blame the bombing on so-called “right-wing extremists?”

    In examining the events of the week, a rational person can’t help but conclude that only a small part of what’s being officially reported about the Boston marathon bombers has any basis in fact. And even after the announced arrest of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the remaining survivor of the supposed terrorist bombing duo, we still have:

    • No images or video of this person placing any bomb on the ground

    • No acknowledgement of the existence of the “Craft” military spooks who all carried large backpacks at the marathon and were found moving away from one of the bombs just minutes before it went off

    • No apology from the mainstream media for its week-long rampage against “right-wing extremists” who it vilified as the probable bombers

    • No explanation for why it takes thousands of heavily-armed police, armored assault vehicles and federal agents to find and arrest one teenager

    • No reply from the FBI on just how much the FBI controlled and manipulated these suspects over the last few years, as has been described by their mother.

    • No legal justification for the “lockdown” martial law declaration that has been illegally forced upon the people of Boston

    But don’t hold your breath on any of this. The last thing the public would ever get in any of this would be real answers.

    My working theory on what really went down

    Here’s my theory on what actually happened:

    The FBI “recruited” the Tsarnaeva brothers years ago as part of their ongoing campaign of staging actual terrorist attacks in the USA as is well documented in the New York Times and elsewhere.

    The FBI gave these guys the skills, the plans and the materials to make the “pressure cooker” bombs, then picked the target of the Boston marathon. This tactical-level planning of terrorism by the FBI is not uncommon. As Kurt Nimmo writes on InfoWars:

    The FBI is notorious for recruiting and framing terrorist patsies. A report compiled by Mother Jones and the Investigative Reporting Program at the University of California-Berkley found that of the 158 prosecutions carried out on terrorism charges since 9/11, 49 defendants participated in plots that were arranged by FBI agent provocateurs.

    “The Craft” operatives were then hired by the government to be on scene and observe the brothers to make sure they placed the backpacks as planned.

    The original plan was to then use the explosions to blame “right-wing extremists” by nailing other patsies in the crowd who had already been set up to be present with backpacks. The two brothers would escape blame and be allowed to continue working for the FBI on other terrorism campaigns.

    But when the alternative media began circulating suspicious photos of “The Craft” team members and blowing the cover on the whole operation, the FBI suddenly reversed course on Wednesday and retracted its stated arrest of a white suspect, “flipping the script” onto the Tsarnaeva brothers. Knowing they could not sustain the big lie of “right-wing extremists,” they decided to sacrifice their two pawns. If they could be killed during a firefight, that would be even better.

    One of the Tsarnaeva brothers has already been shot and then run over by a vehicle (almost certainly a government vehicle, although the press ridiculously says his own brother ran over him). The other was captured last night, alive, but it has already been decided this person has no right to any due process and will be tortured and interrogated until he talks.

    So the entire theatrical production now moves into Act Two, where any mention of FBI involvement will be memory-holed, and anyone who suggests the FBI might have coached or even trained these two brothers will be labeled a “conspiracy theorist.”

    Score one for the FBI and its department of terrorism. This should keep the American sheeple compliant and afraid for at least another year or two…

    And don’t worry; the FBI has plenty of additional terrorism plots already under way. Each of them will be released at the appropriate time to manipulate public emotions and keep driving America into a state of undeclared martial law.

    Anyone who believes the official story on all this is a fool.

  • The FBI Fosters, Funds and Equips American Terrorists

    April 19, 2013

    People around the world watched in horror this week as explosions rocked the finish line of the Boston Marathon, turning a day of sportsmanship and celebration into one of shock, grief and outrage. As with all such events, the desire to discover who was behind this cowardly act has driven many into a speculative frenzy. And, in a sad reminder of the indoctrination that the Western world has been under for over a decade now in the mythical “war of terror,” it did not take long at all before the collective finger of the mob was pointed squarely in the direction of Muslim terrorists.

    Within hours of the blast, fear spread throughout the international Muslim community that the bombing would be connected to an Islamist extremist. A Libyan Twitter user touched a nerve—and received thousands of retweets and worldwide media coverage—by tweeting “Please don’t be a ‘Muslim.’” The backlash began shortly thereafter, with the New York Post falsely implying that a Saudi national was being questioned for his possible role in the attack. The next day, a plane departing Boston Logan Airport returned to the gate and two passengers were forcibly removed because they had been overheard speaking Arabic before takeoff.

    As data continues to pour in regarding the bombing and who may be behind it, it is instructive to take a moment to step back and consider this knee-jerk tendency to conclude that this is the work of Islamic radicals. In the minds of millions of Americans, bombs targeting innocents on US soil are inextricably linked with the image of the bearded, turban-wearing boogeyman that has become the shorthand for evil in this age of terror.

    This association is not only incorrect, it is dangerously incorrect because it signally fails to identify the one unifying thread between all of the recent terror plots in the US. Lurking behind the shadowy armies of would-be jihadis in the popular imagination is the sober reality that every single major terror bust in the United States since 9/11 has sourced back to the same group, a single entity that has in every single case funded, equipped and even incited the would-be terrorists into action: the FBI.

    In 2005, federal prosecutors charged Michael Reynolds, a 47 year old drifter living with his elderly mother, of attempting to wage jihad on the US by blowing up fuel facilities. In reality, his plan for jihad was little more than a series of conversations he had on a Yahoo! Chat room with a US judge posing as a militant. He was arrested after agreeing to meet with an FBI informant who had promised him $40,000 for his cause, and two months later the FBI quietly announced he was likely mentally ill. He was eventually convicted and is curently serving 25 years in jail.

    A d v e r t i s e m e n t

    In 2007 the so-called “Fort Dix Six” were nabbed in a much-hyped FBI terror bust after allegedly hatching a plan to attack a US military base and kill the soldiers there. At the time, a 26-page indictment revealed that the group had “no rigorous military training” and “did not appear close to being able to pull off an attack.” The next year it was revealed that the FBI informant who had infiltrated the group had in fact offered to organize the members and lead the plot itself.

    In 2009 the Newburgh Four were arrested for an alleged plot to blow up synagogues and shoot down military airplanes in Newburgh, New York. The group was a ragtag bunch of poor black men, at least one of whom was mentally unstable and stored his own urine in jars around his apartment. The group’s fifth member, Shahad Hussein, turned out to be an FBI informant who had promised the members hundreds of thousands of dollars to carry out the plot. In sentencing the defendants, Federal Judge Colleen McMahon said:

    “[The government] created acts of terrorism out of [the defendant’s] fantasies of bravado and bigotry, and then made those fantasies come true. The government did not have to infiltrate and foil some nefarious plot – there was no nefarious plot to foil.”

    In November 2010 the FBI busted the so-called Portland Christmas Tree Bomber, who was allegedly attempting to bomb the lighting ceremony at Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square. “The threat was very real,” the FBI intoned at the time. “Our investigation shows that Mohamud was absolutely committed to carrying out an attack on a very grand scale.” The alleged bomber, Arthur Balizan, turned out to be a teenager who bragged to undercover agents that he could get a gun because he was a “rapper” and wrote an article on workout tips for jihadis.

    In 2011 the FBI arrested a man that they themselves had supplied with a remote controlled plane and C4 explosives in a harebrained attempt to bomb the Pentagon. In 2012 they busted another would-be jihadi that they again had supplied with a fake gun and suicide vest. Also in 2012 the FBI busted a group of five “anarchists” who were allegedly going to bomb a bridge in the Cleveland area, although it was quietly admitted that the FBI informant who had infiltrated the group had in fact initiated the contact with them and been present at the meetings where they developed the plan to blow up the bridge.

    One of the most ridiculous examples of this pattern dates back to 2006, when the DOJ attempted to make it seem as if they had just nabbed a group of dangerous jihadis who were preparing a full ground war against the United States.

    The picture that is painted by these facts is as overwhelming as it is difficult for much of the public to comprehend. The conclusion, nevertheless, is incontrovertible: that without the FBI, many of the so-called “terrorist cells” that have been hatching their inept, bumbling schemes against the United States for decades might never have existed at all.

    Despite what many would believe, this conclusion is not even controversial. Rather, it has been backed up time and again by evidence in the official record and multiply attested to by FBI insiders and whistleblowers themselves.

    Given all of this damning history and insider whistleblowing, it is vital that the Western public break out of their media-induced programming and question the core assumptions of the war on terror paradigm that we have been programmed with for decades now. If there is to be speculation at all over events like these, and if there is any group that has to present a thoroughgoing case for why it is NOT responsible for this atrocity, surely it is the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Having been at the heart of so many terror plots in the past, both the hilariously inept and the chillingly successful, how could the public refuse to even interrogate the organization that has the most to answer for?

    The simple fact of the matter is that the history of the modern age of terrorism has proven time and again that the FBI is the prime suspect in any terrorist atrocity that takes place on American soil. Let us all keep this in mind as the details of the investigations into this (and all other) American terrorist incidents begins to emerge.

  • Glenn Beck says Obama is Covering up Truth of Boston Bombing

    “You have til Monday to come clean”

    April 20, 2013
    http://www.infowars.com/glenn-beck-says-obama-is-covering-up-truth-of-boston-bombing/

    Almost immediately following the Boston bombings, radio and former Fox News host Glenn Beck’s news site The Blaze chimed in attempting to ridicule Alex Jones and Infowars for labeling the events a false flag attack, running articles like, “With Absolutely No Evidence, Alex Jones Calls Boston Marathon Explosions a ‘False Flag’ Operation Conducted by the Gov’t.”

    However, Beck himself now seems to be the “conspiracy theorist,” saying he knows something “those at the highest echelons of government” don’t want unearthed. One can only take that to mean Obama and his administration.

    Beck says he’ll give “somebody in Washington” til Monday to come clean about the actual origin of the deported Saudi national. He says something to the effect of, “It would sound better coming from you than me.”

    Of course since Monday, numerous reports have come to light suggesting the Boston bombing suspects were contacted by the FBI at least as early as 2011.

    Meanwhile, Alex Jones, Infowars.com and scores of independent journalists have been on the cutting edge of the investigation, identifying government security teams and potential patsies, and bringing the FBI’s involvement, massive errors and audacity under the public’s scrutiny from day one.

    Indeed, if Beck is not bluffing, which he says he’s not, it’s good to see him come around, but he might take care, lest he end up “Breitbart-ed.”
