Another Foiled False Flag

  Another Foiled False Flag

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Wikipedia defines false or black flags as "covert operations designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities." 

 

"The name is derived from the military concept of flying false colors; that is: flying the flag of a country other than one’s own. False flag operations are not limited to war and counter-insurgency operations and can be used during peace-time."

 

Big lies substitute for truth. Stories are fabricated. Media scoundrels promote them. At issue is heightening fear for planned policies. Pretexts are needed for militarism, imperial wars, and homeland repression. If and when people learn they were duped, it's too late to matter.

 

It's an American tradition. Incidents are strategically timed. Innocent victims suffer. So does everyone living under heightened national security state conditions.

 

Threats are manufactured. States of emergency are declared. Rule of law principles are discarded. Unchallenged dominance alone matters. Wars on humanity follow. Big lies facilitate them. False flags play their part.

 

Here we go again. This one's a sequel. Perhaps Hollywood blockbusters will follow, first the original plot, then the latest. More on the earlier one below. 

 

On May 7, AP headlined "US: CIA thwarts new al-Qaida underwear bomb plot," saying:

 

Agents foiled "an ambitious plot by al-Qaida's affiliate in Yemen to destroy a US-bound airliner using a bomb with a sophisticated new design around the one-year anniversary of the killing of Osama bin Laden, The Associated Press has learned."

 

AP described an upgraded underwear bomb plot. Like the earlier one, it was "designed to be used in a passenger's underwear, but this time" US officials called it "more refined."

 

On May 7, the FBI issued a brief statement, saying:

 

"As a result of close cooperation with our security and intelligence partners overseas, an improvised explosive device (IED) designed to carry out a terrorist attack has been seized abroad." 

 

"The FBI currently has possession of the IED and is conducting technical and forensics analysis on it. Initial exploitation indicates that the device is very similar to IEDs that have been used previously by al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) in attempted terrorist attacks, including against aircraft and for targeted assassinations." 

 

"The device never presented a threat to public safety, and the US government is working closely with international partners to address associated concerns with the device." 

 

"We refer you to the Department of Homeland Security, including the Transportation Security Administration, regarding ongoing security measures to safeguard the American people and the traveling public."

 

The device contained no metal. It's not clear if body scanners could have detected it. Officials said an alleged Yemen-based bomber hadn't yet picked a target or bought plane tickets. CIA agents seized the device before he had a chance. The suspect wasn't identified.

 

AP learned of the plot earlier but agreed to White House and CIA requests to delay publishing because intelligence operations were ongoing.

 

On May 8, the White House and FBI confirmed AP's report. Deputy national security council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said Obama knew last month. "The disruption of the IED plot underscores the necessity of remaining vigilant against terrorism here and abroad," she said.

 

"While the president was assured that the device did not pose a threat to the public, he directed the department of homeland security and law enforcement and intelligence agencies to take whatever steps necessary to guard against this type of attack," she added.

 

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) spokesman Matt Chandler said:

 

The latest plot "demonstrates our adversaries' interest in targeting the aviation sector." Protective "layers" are thus used. 

 

They "include threat and vulnerability analysis, prescreening and screening of passengers using the best available technology, random searches at airports, federal air marshal coverage, and additional security measures both seen and unseen."

 

"It's not clear who built the bomb," AP reported. Authorities "suspect it was the work of master bomb maker Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri." A Saudi citizen, he's one of their most wanted. Earlier he was imprisoned and released.

 

He's reportedly in Yemen with his brother Abdullah. He's another Saudi most wanted. Washington claims they're both Al Qaeda connected. He's blamed for earlier bomb plots.

 

On March 24, 2011, the State Department included Ibrahim on its terrorist watch list. He's also on an Interpol Orange Notice one. It "warns police and other international organizations about potential threats from disguised weapons, parcel bombs, or other dangerous materials."

 

Washington considers Yemen strategically important. It's mostly for its location near the Horn of Africa on Saudi Arabia's southern border, the Red Sea, and Bab el- Mandeb strait. 

 

It's a key chokepoint separating Yemen from Eritrea. Around three million barrels of oil pass through it daily. The Gulf of Aden connects to the Indian Ocean. Since 2009, Obama waged drone war on the country. CIA and Special Forces operate on the ground. Death squads are deployed.

 

America's at war with Yemen without declaring it. Predator drones escalate killing. Media scoundrels say little. Yemen gets attention when foiled bomb plots are claimed. They're pretexts for stepped up measures there and at home. 

 

Washington's targets are global. US citizens share risks with foreign ones. Waging war on humanity leaves no one safe. Everyone everywhere is fair game. Any place could erupt in free-fire zone violence. Anyone can be accused of terrorism or conspiracy to commit it.

 

America's hegemonic ambitions threaten humanity. Too few at home understand. Public ignorance and indifference let Washington get away with murder. It's a global killing machine to remove all challenges.

 

The Earlier Underwear Bomber False Flag

 

It was fake like the sequel. In December 2009, US officials claimed Nigerian citizen Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab traveled to Yemen, got Al Qaeda training, and explosive PETN chemicals.

 

Supposedly he tried using them to blow up an Amsterdam-Detroit-bound airliner on Christmas Day. In fact, he was a fall guy for a joint CIA/Mossad/India Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) false flag.

 

The same alliance staged coordinated 2008 Mumbai terror attacks. Dozens were killed and hundreds wounded. They also were behind former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto's 2007 assassination. 

 

The same issue then remains US policy now. Destabilizing and balkanizing Pakistan is planned. It's also perhaps intended for Afghanistan and Libya. Iraq's already divided. Always it's for easier control and exploitation.

 

Abdulmutallab was a convenient patsy. He was used to facilitate America's war on Yemen. Britain denied him an entrance visa. His name was on a State Department terror watch list. 

 

Yet he wasn't on a No Fly List. He paid cash for a one-way ticket to Detroit, checked no luggage, had a US visa but no passport, and was helped onboard by a "well-dressed Indian" gentleman (a RAW agent) to facilitate Washington's scheme to use him as a convenient dupe.

 

His PETN was virtually harmless. It was technically deficient, failed to go off properly, and had fire cracker strength. Following the incident, Washington's war on Yemen escalated and enhanced airport screening began. Full body scanners the ACLU calls "virtual strip search(es)" are used.

 

False flags create opportunities to advance America's imperium. They also facilitate its war on dissent. In May 2011, three key Patriot Act powers were extended for another four years. Little debate assured swift passage. As a result:

 

(1) Unlimited roving wiretaps continue unchecked.

 

(2) Section 215 pertains to alleged suspects. It authorizes government access to "any tangible item." They included financial records and transactions, student and medical records, phone conversations, emails, other Internet use, and whatever else Washington claims essential.

 

(3) Alleged suspect organizations and individuals can be surveilled, whether or not evidence links them to terrorism or complicity to commit it. In other words, police state powers to monitor anyone for any reason or none at all remain unchecked.

 

Racial profiling and waging war on Islam got boosts. Abdulmutallab benefitted Washington at his own expense. Expect the underwear bomb sequel to provide more. 

 

Washington will take full advantage. Perhaps Obama has another war in mind.

 

A Final Comment

 

On May 8, The New York Times headlined "Rare Double Agent Disrupted Bombing Plot, US says." 

 

Most likely it's double-dealing official lies and misreporting. According to Times-speak, a Saudi intelligence agent "infiltrated (a) terrorist group and volunteered for the mission, American and foreign officials said Tuesday."

 

Washington claims he provided an "innovative bomb" designed for "aviation attack." The Times reported the story without checking for reliability. If official sources say it, accounts follow true or false.

 

The agent is back in Saudi Arabia, The Times said. CIA agents were involved.

 

What's true or false isn't clear. What's certain is another false flag for reasons similar to previous ones. They repeat well-timed for strategic advantage. 

 

They're manufactured to look real. Media scoundrels headline them. Most people don't know they've been had. The scam repeats because it works. No wonder America gets away with murder and much more.

Washington's using so-called Al Qaeda, an invention of Washington or CIA in the present "dirty" sort of war in Syria against the Syrian govt, which might not be holy, but then Washington's as far as we can distance ourselves from holiness and was in relations with an Al Qaeda (not a group) right up to 9/11 and since, according to Ms Sibel Edmonds, who I believe that we can believe is credible.  And we're supposed to believe the bs in the report from AP about Washington's bs claims.  Since when are we to believe Washington?

"It's not clear who built the bomb," AP reported. Authorities "suspect it was the work of master bomb maker Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri." A Saudi citizen, he's one of their most wanted. Earlier he was imprisoned and released.

I'm getting a little déjà vu (read- or learned-about) ....  Remember the 1993 WTC bombing?  Most people probably do and Stephen Lendman most definitely does.  So let's try to guess who was behind this so-called terrorist attack.  Hmmm, might the answer be the FBI.  Oh, whoever made that guess just won the guessing competition.

The 1993 World Trade Center Bombing

The World Trade Center became established as a prime target for terrorist attacks by the 1993 garage bombing, which a 1500-pound urea-nitrate bomb, packed in a van carved out a multi-story crater in the garage, and killed six people while injuring over one thousand subjected to toxic smoke.

As in the 9/11/01 attack, the FBI was extremely prompt in identifying the suspect. They arrested Mohammed A. Salameh and his friend Nidal Ayyad days after the attack, based on a fragment of metal at the scene traced back to a Ford Econoline rental van.

The behavior of the FBI's prime suspect Salameh was not that of the typical bomber. He reported the van stolen the day before the bombing to both the police and the rental agency, and went to the rental agency the day of the attack to attempt to retrieve his $400 deposit.

Here's another article and I'll excerpt some parts of it.  The author begins by explicitly saying that he didn't place a copyright on the piece and that it can be used in whatever ways we wish.

Troubling Questions in Troubling Times

A critical look at the history of attacks on the World Trade Center

by James S. Adam

October 5, 2001

...

 

The Washington Post article asked a senior law enforcement official why, "if he is guilty, Salameh would have been so naïve as to rent the truck in his own name, report it stolen to the agency and the police, and return twice to the agency to attempt to retrieve his deposit, the senior law enforcement official said: "Who knows. Just because he's a terrorist, doesn't mean he's a brain surgeon. ... Call it good investigating."

However, a problem arose with the FBI's claim that the bomb was composed of nitrates. On Thursday, September 14, 1995, the Washington Post affirmed that the FBI crime laboratory was being probed and that "the Justice Department is investigating complaints that workers in the bureau's crime laboratory have offered misleading or fabricated evidence in a number of major criminal cases."

The article went on to cite that these allegations were made by special agent Frederic Whitehurst with specific regards to the World Trade Center bombing case, as well as other well publicized cases. On August 14, 1995, special agent Frederic Whitehurst testified in the bombing trial that urea nitrate, the claimed chemical compound which had been used in the bombing, was such a rare substance that it could not be found in the United States. Although Whitehurst confirmed that the substance could be used to make a bomb, he was not aware of it being reported in use since 1960 when the Australians discontinued its use because of its propensity to decompose very quickly. Moreover, the substance was so rarely used to make bombs that he was not aware of it ever having been tested in FBI laboratories.

During the course of the trial, special agent Frederic Whitehurst testified that the FBI concocted misleading scientific reports and pressured two of their scientists to perjure their testimony in order to support its prosecution of the defendants:

Dr. Whitehurst was asked the following questions in the course of his testimony, as mentioned in an official court transcript, page 16337:

...

Special agent Frederic Whitehurst, the senior FBI explosives expert, was demoted to paint analysis.

The most disturbing part of this trial was the dubious testimony of one Emad Salem, an obscure figure who was hired by the FBI following the famed killing of right-wing militant rabbi Meir Kahane in 1991. Salem, a high ranking Egyptian government operative, had penetrated the circles of [Omar Abdel] Rahman .... The prosecution's case relied almost entirely on the testimony of Emad Salem, ....

Salem informed the FBI about the more than 1,000 conversations he had recorded within Rahman's circle sometime between December 1991 and June 1993. Unbeknownst to the FBI, he had also been secretly taping their conversations too. Bugging the FBI, Salem had deceived them, which would prove to be very problematic as these tapes established that the FBI was at the very least, aware of Salem's role of being an 'agent provocateur' in the bombing, as well as his involvement in the plans to blow up the United Nations Building and Lincoln and Holland Tunnels.

The Los Angeles Times ran a story on July 4, 1993, stating that fifty storage boxes of documents concerning plans to blow up the World Trade Center had 'sat' in police and FBI hands.

On Aug. 3, 1993, an epic edition of New York Newsday was released in which the presence of these cassettes would first be publicized, thus revealing a secret U.S. Government complicity in the World Trade Center bombing: ....

...

The article maintained:

"Prosecutors concede that the conversations may become a potent weapon for defense attorneys, damaging the informant's credibility and strengthening the defense's theory that the FBI instigated the plot. ...

...

As for the portions which clearly indicated that the FBI was involved in a classic entrapment setup and had collaborated with Salem in the implementation of the bombing, they were conveniently not publicized. In a surreptitiously taped conversation involving Salem and Special Agent John Anticev, Salem refers to his contribution in the making of the bomb and the Bureau's awareness and consent of it. An avaricious Salem is seen pressing for more money. The conversation revolves around references to the bombing and the FBI's acquaintance of the bomb making:

...

Salem: "Okay. I don't think it was. If that what you think guys, fine, but I don't think that because we was start already building the bomb which is went off in the World Trade Center. It was built by supervising supervision from the Bureau and the DA and we was all informed about it and we know what the bomb start to be built. By who? By your confidential informant. What a wonderful great case! And then he put his head in the sand I said "Oh, no, no, that's not true, he is son of a bitch." (Deep breath) Okay. It's built with a different way in another place and that's it."

...

Former Watergate associate prosecutor Richard Ben-Veniste warned that these tapes pose "an absolute nightmare for federal prosecutors."

When Ron Kuby, one of the defendant's attorneys in the case was questioned about an article which revealed that Salem and the FBI were involved in the bombing, he stated: "The article on the FBl being involved in the World Trade Center bombing actually understated the evidence, believe it or not. The informer, Emad Salem, is actually on tape saying that he built the bomb that ultimately blew up the World Trade Center."

...

That's not enough to provide appreciation for what the whole article says and the part about the WTC bombing in 1993 is a little less than half of the page, the rest being about the 9/11 attacks; but, the above excerpts will hopefully be interesting enough to draw people to read the whole of what the piece says about the 1993  bombing.

I'll provide some excerpts from the introduction to a 4-part article by Kevin Ryan and the introduction provides all of the links a reader could want for Kevin Ryan's parts.  For people who don't know who Kevin Ryan, see www2.ae911truth.org/profile.php?uid=999925 , for a little info.  I think it's better to listen to him in videos in order to try to get a real "feeling" for the guy, but he's clearly been honest, imo, and he has expertise very relevant for investigating the 9/11 attacks.

Kevin Ryan's 'Demolition Access ...' Lights the Shadows

...

Security

Part Two of Kevin Ryan's 'Demoltion Access' study examines companies and individuals that provided presumable 'Security' for the two Towers and other property in the WTC complex.

At least 29 individuals are named in this part as executives in Corporations' or Governments' offices ... nominally responsible for protecting the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan between 1973 and 2001.

Among the firms most responsible for security at New York City's WTC before " '9/11' " were Kroll, Inc. (since 1993 23% owned by the American International Group), Stratasec or Securacom (whose executives or Board members included George W. Bush's brother Marvin and their evident, mysterious cousin Wirt Walker), the Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) that somehow envisioned the 1993 bombing of the Twin Towers and that provided the most non-U.S. Govermment investigators to the U.S. Department of Commerce's National Institute of Standards and Technology after the 2001 demolition of the Towers, and the BDM/TRW subsidiary Ensec of Brasil.

The reach of even this short list of Corporations that profit from 'Security' travels from yakuza-partnered businesses in Japan to the training of Militaries across the Middle East to the opium-into-heroin laboratories of Afghanistan and Pakistan and thence back to the money-laundering and credit-creating Banks of New York City, Washington, DC and the City of London (Bank of America, Barclay's, Chase, Citigroup, ...) [59]

We meet many of them again and again in the third and fourth installments of Kevin Ryan's 'Demolition Access ...' study.

Four Leading Players

Part Three of Kevin Ryan's study is a relative encapsulation, titled 'Caryle, Kissinger, SAIC and Halliburton: A 9/11 Convergence', focusing on four of the more well-known Corporations or individuals integral to New York City's former World Trade Center and the" 'War on Terror' ".

The Carlyle Group .... ...

On September 11, 2001 the Carylyle Group was 'the eleventh largest' recipient of U. S. Department of Defense contracts, according to GlobalSecurity.org. [61] ...

Henry Kissinger is the former U.S. Secretary of State (1973-77), the orchestrator of massacares in Vietnam, Cambodia, Chile, East Timor and elsewhere between 1969-1976 [63], and a recipient of the 1973 Nobel Peace Prize. Through his lead role in Kissinger Associates, founded in 1982 'with $350,000 lent to him by Goldman, Sachs and a consortium of three other banks', [64] Sir Henry (the German immigrant and long-time Rockefeller beneficiary was named a Knight Commander by the British Royal Institute of International Affairs in 1995) was part-owner of several Corporations that profited directly from destruction of the three WTC Buildings on 9/11/01. [65] These Kissinger-partnered Corporations on 9/11/01 included the Blackstone Group (headed on 9/11/01 by Peter G. Peterson, who was then the Chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York [66], the American International Group (headed on 9/11/01 by Council on Foreign Relations' and Federal Reserve Bank of New York eminence Maurice Greenberg [67]), and Kroll, Inc.. (headed on 9/11/01 by Michael Cherkasky, the former Manhattan District Attorney who was Chief of Investigations into the 1993 bombing of the WTC Twin Towers [68], a bombing that became lethal due to the insistence of FBI Special Agent John Anticev to FBI informant Emad Salem, as revealed in a tape-recorded conversation that was published by the New York Times and Washington Post and Atlantic Monthly and then covered up. [69]

Michael Cherkasky was another person wanted for further questioning by the San Diego Citizens' Grand Jury ... on the 'Charge' of 'Conspiracy to Commit Mass Murder' as well as the 'Charges' of 'Destruction of Evidence' and 'Obstruction of Justice.' [70]

Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) is the San Diego-based 'intelligence contractor' that Kevin Ryan ranks as having received 'more individual government contracts than any other private company in America' and a firm responsible for advising New York City's World Trade Center on measures for security before and after the 1993, FBI-assisted bombing of the Twin Towers as well as a firm with expertise in nano-thermites. Among employees of SAIC or members of its Board of Directors before 9/11/01 are the Bush/Obama Administrations' Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, former CIA Deputy Director and U. S. Navy Admiral Bobby Ray Inman, former Director of New York City's Office of Emergency Management Jerrome Hauer (1996-2000), a Managing Director of Kroll, Inc. on 9/11/01, and Jerome Hauer's close associate Steven Hatfill, a supporter of South Africa's apartheid in the 1980s and a prime suspect in the September/October 2001 anthrax attacks in the U.S [71], and Duane Andrews, Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Department of Defense under Dick Cheney during the 1991-92 Gulf War.

The Halliburton Corporation and its subsidiaries on 9/11/01 of Dresser Industries and Kellogg, Brown, Root share a history of branching out from the supply of oil-field drilling services to the supply of logistical support and surveillance to overseas U.S. Military Forces.

The latter expansion of Halliurton's business especially increased when Dick Cheney was Chief Executive Officer of this Corporation between 1995-2001, Cheney appointing to Halliburton's Board of Directors Kissinger Associates' Lawrence Eagleburger (U.S. Secretary of State under President George H. W. Bush) and Charles DiBona, a former Special Assistant to U.S. President Richard Nixon, DiBona also President of the American Petroleum Institute for 19 years and a close associate of the head of companies that had offices in the airliners' impact-zones of both WTC Towers, Joseph Kasputys. Like Joseph Kasputys, Charles DiBona was and is also a Commander in the U.S. Navy.

Clean-up and Cover-up

...

The 'Clean-up' installment of Kevin Ryan's 'Demolition ...' study reports new accounts of criminality by the United States' Federal Bureau of Investigation.

FBI agents Richard Marx, Pasquale ("Pat") D'Amuro, Kevin Donovan, Edwin Cogswell and Barry Mawn are found by admissions within their own ranks to have stolen significant pieces of steel and other evidence from the Fresh Kills landfill to which WTC wreckage was hauled (footnotes 105, 106). Pat D'Amuro was the lead FBI Agent into investigation of the 1993 FBI-assisted bombing of the Twin Towers and -- according to FBI Director Robert Mueller's commendation in promoting D'Amuro to be the Bureau's Assistant Director of Counter-Terrorism on January 31, 2002 -- also headed 'the PENTTBOM investigation' that somehow identified all 18 and then 19 supposed Arab hijackers (Hani Hanjour, the incompetent, supposed pilot of American Airlines Flight 77, was a latecomer to the FBI's list) within 72 hours of the 9/11/01 morning.

Oklahoma City bombing, 1995:

Why bring up this "old" topic?  Be patient and learn.

The following video evidently is a copy of a video-recording of Ted Gunderson speaking and  he's a former FBI "Agent in Charge", but while the title for the video isn't about OKC at all, he does speak about the 1995 OKC bombing in an important way.

Or, www.youtube.com/watch?v=PlYWyimLSeE

Quoting from the brasschecktv.com page:

Theodore L. Gunderson (Nov. 7, 1928 - July 31, 2011)

Gunderson joined the Federal Bureau of Investigation in December 1951under J. Edgar Hoover. He served in the Mobile, Knoxville, New York City, and Albuquerque offices. He held posts as an Assistant Special Agent-in-Charge in New Haven and in Philadelphia. In 1973 he became the head of the Memphis FBI and then the head of the Dallas FBI in 1975. Ted Gunderson was appointed the head of the Los Angeles FBI in 1977.

In this interview, Gunderson discusses incidents U.S. government sponsored terrorism and the reasons behind them.

According to the Wikipedia page about Ted Gunderson he seems to have become a little wacky in his late years, but I assume that he wasn't always that way. And if he was right in what he claimed during his late years, then I would need supporting references, for I think he lost touch with reality, a "little".  That's not uncommon though and that he would earlier claim that the US, i.e., Washington, sponsors terrorism shows that he had sense.  He was a member of the "Constitution Party", which I guess might be a little fanatical, but that's not unusual and it surely couldn't be a party worse than the Dem. and Repub. parties are with their ROTTEN "leaderships".  Defending and upholding the US Constitution is something the Dem. and Repub. party "leaderships" clearly have no intention of doing and haven't for a LONG time now.  Like Bush Jr said in January 2003 about the Constitution, "It's just a piece of paper".  That's how "leaderships" of the two main political parties treat the Constitution, while Bush Jr was the first and may be also the last person to explicitly state this. (As inconvenient, ... as he is and has been, he can be "convenient" in some ways; telling us what we can and should already know the rest all think. :) )

Jane Graham:

"OKC Bombing Star Witness Reveals Staged Government Terror Attack" (62 min)

Published on Apr 19, 2012 by TheAlexJonesChannel
www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3eDsWbf3Ao

For the above interview with star witness Jane Graham there's a second guest, James, Lane, who is a producer of a related documentary entitled "A Noble Lie: Oklahoma City 1995".  I haven't viewed it, yet, but based on what I've learned in relation to and about it, it should be very good. 

Jane Graham was director or head of HUD at the Alfred Murrah building that was bombed in OKC, 1995, and HUD is Housing and Urban Development.  Assuming she's telling the truth, and I haven't noticed any changes in her account since the first time I listened to an interview with her some years ago, we should find what she says to be very interesting and important.  She witnessed Tim McVeigh, who was still in the US military in April 1995, visiting the US Army section of the bombed building on multiple occasions, and she witnessed a lot more than that.

Here's an earlier interview with her.

Note:  That video at first seems to be only 5 minutes long and it's been several months since I checked it, but it turned out to be roughly 85 minutes long.

People who search YouTube using "Oklahoma City" and "Hoppy Heidelberg", or maybe even only his name, for search terms will find plenty of other videos with him speaking about the OKC 1995 bombing and/or subsequently related process of law or rather absence of a true system of justice.  And that evidently includes interviews from this year that I haven't yet listened to.  During my Web search, some links came up for videos at TheAlexJonesChannel from this year and these videos normally are posted shortly after they're first made.

Weapons and Explosives expert USAF (Retired) Brig. General Ben Partin was the main expert who inspected the site of the Oklahoma City bombing of the Murrah Federal Building, analyzing hundreds of photos of the disaster. In this June 1998 speech to the Wallace Institute in Santa Clara, California, he offers his take and describes his testimony to Congress.

Officer Terrence Yeakey, OKC 1995:

This is a very important part of the whole story re. OKC 1995 bombing and censored direct consequences.

Terry Yeakey was around 50 years old and a police officer in Okla. City when the 1995 bombing occurred, and he was able
to see that the bombing wasn't like the govt claimed.  He immediately called his wife, crying, telling her it hadn't happened as
the govt was reporting.  He then exhaustively worked to help rescue people who were in the building and the last I heard about this recently, he saved eight people.

On May 11, 1996, he was to receive the medal of valor but never got it due to having been found dead around 2.5mi west of a penitentiary and on federal property, which local police weren't permitted to enter in order to investigate. I think the guy speaking in the second and one-part video a little further below (the one uploaded by bushuraloser) says Terry Yeakey was found dead on May 8, 1996.

The official govt report on his death claimed suicide, but he would've had to slash himself around eleven times on both forearms, then cut his own throat, and still alive, would've crawled another mile, climbed over a fence and then shot himself in the head without leaving any traces of gun powder, and ... possibly more, all on his own. The govt claimed this was a suicide, but that's definitely not credible, imo and in agreement with others who say that it's impossible for a person to commit suicide in this fashion.

In a groundbreaking interview, Infowars Nighly News host Rob Dew speaks with Don Browning, a K9 unit police officer for OKC, and Holland Van den Nieuwenhof, writer & producer for already classic exposé A Noble Lie. Browning, who found many living and dead in the Murrah rubble, discusses how he received thinly-veiled threats from the feds after he began asking questions about the inconsistencies he witnessed in part of a continuing series of interviews re-examining the official lies of the Oklahoma City Bombing, which paved the way for 9/11 and false flag events yet to come.

Excerpt:

The April 19, 1995 bombing that destroyed much of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building involved far more revealing evidence than the FBI maintains. A Noble Lie presents interviews with police officers, first responders, victims, journalists and investigators whose evidence demonstrates that not all the perpetrators were brought to justice.

Among the interview subjects are General Benton Partin, former head of weapons development for the Air Force, State Representative Charles Key, members of the Oklahoma Bombing Investigation Committee and Jesse Trentadue, whose brother Kenneth was tortured and murdered in Federal custody in the days following the bombing.

A Noble Lie: Oklahoma City 1995 is the only full-length documentary that addresses and answers many of the questions people have asked about the bombing. Details as to what really happened regarding this horrific event, taking the lives of 168 people, have been summarily covered up by the Federal Government. A Noble Lie is the culmination of years of research and documentation conducted by independent journalists, scholars, and ordinary citizens. ...

Oklahoma City Bombing Investigation Committee Claims Startling Evidence Proves Government Cover-Up

...

For the most part, the media has accepted and promoted the government's version of the bombing: that McVeigh -- with minor assistance from Terry Nichols -- acted alone. The one-man, one-bomb scenario.

...

Charles Key was a Oklahoma state representative from 1986-1998, during which time he served on the Banking and Finance, Criminal Justice, and other committees. Mr. Key served as Republican Whip during part of his tenure. Soon after the Oklahoma City bombing, survivors and relatives of the victims of the bombing began contacting Key to complain about the manner in which the Federal Government was conducting the investigation. Within hours and days of the bombing, many suspicious facts were coming to light. So many broken-hearted families affected directly by the bombing had unanswered questions and implored Key, in his capacity as an elected official, to pursue further investigation into the case. This resulted in the formation of the Oklahoma Bombing Investigation Committee (OBIC). The OBIC--which consists of Key and three other prominent Oklahoma citizens -- was established in April 1997 to investigate matters that government agencies had refused to consider, and to submit information to the Oklahoma County Grand Jury which was impaneled in June 1997.

In the winter of 2001 the OBIC released its Final Report On The Bombing Of The Alfred P. Murrah Building April 19, 1995. The report is extremely critical of the government and FBI. Citing government documents and the findings of their own investigators, the OBIC claims the government has engaged in a massive cover-up.

Some of the most intriguing information in the Final Report -- and one of the main reasons that Key founded the OBIC -- is that within a few weeks of the bombing, the most preeminent experts on explosives -- Sam Cohen and others -- were saying that the destruction of the Murrah Building could not possibly have come from an ANFO truck bomb, and that the bomb -- or bombs -- had to be inside the building. As one of these experts, Brigadier General (USAF, ret.) Benton Partin said, "It's an entirely different story if you had a bunch of demolition charges in the building in contradistinction to an ammonium-nitrate truck placed out in front of the building . . . It probably would have taken several people to do this. And it would have taken people with access. You have to remember that these federal buildings have guards on the gate and they have magnetometers and everything else. So it's not only how many people, but who had access . . . You just don't walk in off the street through security with explosives like this."

Last notes:

Some people mock, ridicule Alex Jones, some want to hear nothing of the programs he provides, but I recommend not judging so blindly.  He strikes me as a little fanatical, of sorts, at times and perhaps too often, but he delivers and it isn't for nonsensical reasons that respected people like Ray McGovern, Pepe Escobar, various present or at least former US and foreign govt officials, and others provide interviews on Jones' program(s).  People who only prefer to mock, ... him don't deliver anything of value for important information and interviews, while he does.  So I put his excesses aside in order to listen for the information that will be gained, and if he takes up too much of an interview and I get annoyed with that, then I'll just cease for that particular program, but will check others in the future.

He sometimes talks too much, imo, but not always though.

Let's face some facts.  Jones has many listeners, viewers, so a large audience, and 9/11 definitely didn't happen as the govt claimed and still claims. Neither did the 1993 WTC bombing, what happened with the USS Maine, President LBJ ordered survivors of the ship to keep silent about what happened when Israel attacked the ship that Israel had to have known was of the USA, what Washington claimed in the Gulf of Tonkin "affair" was balony, as David Swanson has exposed, it wasn't North, but rather South, Korea that initiated the Korean War, Washington lied to keep the US going with its war on Vietnam, Washington lied regarding Laos, Combodia, ..., the Clinton Administration lied about Kosovo's crimes against Albanians in order to try to drive public support in the USA for war that was really war of aggression and a very one-sided attack, Washington basically forced Japan into attacking Pearl Harbor, the Dec. 25, 2009, "underwear bomber" story from Washington was a lot of bs, as Stephen Lendman has explained with his article of this page at WarIsACrime.org, and so on.

And we're supposed to believe the "official story" from the govt about the 1995 bombing in OKC?  I don't think so. No I don't.

Since when does Washington provide proof that backs up its claims?  Not since JFK anyway.  Washington constantly lies.  If the President tells us that he tied his own shoes this morning, then even that might be a lie. He may've had a maid do it for him and just wants to entertain us a little, before getting to his serious lies.  It's just a warm-up exercise for the big lies that follow.  It's a little like doing stretching exercises before commencing weight resistance workouts, serious bicycle trekking, ..., ya see; except, the latter is healthy, while the lying definitely isn't.

And, also look for videos at YouTube for the account provided by former US consulate official Michael/Mike Springman, who worked at a US consulate in Saudi Arabia.  For people who haven't heard his account, yet, it should be considered very important to do so.  Washington facilitates, i.e., ensures foreigners the US State Department lists as terrorists or as associated with terrorist groups entry into the USA.  Why would a govt help alleged terrorists or terrorist associates entry in the USA, and I mean while they can freely move about, et cetera, in the USA?  It means that Washington is up to more crimes and strategically needs patsies; if any of them eventually become accused, by Washington, of committing terrorist acts in the USA anyway.  If they go unaccused, then there remains the question of "Why?", why Washington facilitates movement of terrorists or terrorist associates into and in the USA.

Investigations that're lacking:  A true and independent 9/11 investigation is definitely warranted, and the same is true about the 1993 WTC bombing, the 1995 OKC bombing, and a whole lot more.  It would take a lifetime to get all of this done, if there were no obstructions, that is.  Obstructions?  That's about all we get from Washington, which obstructs the establishment of peaceful relations between the govts of this world, real democracy, real system of justice, and so on.

Liberation:  Yeah, like the so-called liberation Bush Jr was really talking about when he said that the US-lead war on Iraq would bring liberation, justice and democracy to/for Iraqis, a totally non-credible claim.  Washington also wants to liberate all of us, because Washington can't stand a world that could be just and peaceful.  Those are unprofitable goals, ya see.  Bush also wanted to help edge us further to the toileting, say, of the US Constitution when he was asked about this in January 2003.  He received a group of journalists at the White House and was speaking about how great the war on Iraq would be, a journalist who was evidently awake asked, "But what about the Constitution?", and Bush took his time, as usual, but eventually answered, by saying that the Constitution "is just a piece of paper".  See!  Like I said.  Washington wants to "liberate" us. :)

Washington's waiting impatiently for more pom-pom cheerleaders and has a preference for young males, like of minor ages, ya know.

Mike Prysner:  He's an American Iraq and/or Afghanistan war veteran and he spoke at the 3 or 4-day "Winter Soldiers" event, which was majorly censored as far as US "news" media goes. There're some videos at YouTube for some of his words, say, and in an excellent one that I listened to and will always remember he said as I had been saying for years.  The USA has NO foreign enemies, really, albeit I'll add that the Israeli govt is certainly an exception to this rule.  Other than for that exception though, the USA has no foreign enemies.  The real enemies are WITHIN, aka domestic.  And I'll also add that voters better damn well WAKE UP about this reality, for foreign enemies, besides the govt of Israel, are fantasy, non-existant.

Rather than providing coverage for "Winter Soldiers", the so-called "msm" so-called "news" media of the US preferred to inundate us with so-called coverage about Tibet and Chinese govt criminality there that was unsubstantiated, unproven.  It provided a major distraction from the "Winter Soldiers" event and ya know what the "funny" thing about this is?  The Tibet coverage lasted for very close to the exact length of time as the "Winter Soldiers" event did; maybe a day longer than the latter, but VERY close to the same amount of time and during the same f*cking days.  Funny, heh.  "Oh, sorry, it was just an unrelated "coincidence"". these sick "news" medias' chiefs might say.  Sure.  Yeah, and I don't think so.  I found it very suspect and still do. 

No foreign govt would be insane or stupid enough to attack the USA, and no so-called terrorist group would, either, if it's leaders have any real "brains" anyway.  After all, they would then be people capable of realizing that attacks against and in the USA would NOT do them any good at all and that the best direction for them is to stand their ground in their own countries, to try to defend it/them from there.  They know very well that the USA is the world's military superpower and has a vast network of intelligence agencies, et cetera.  They could never win by attacking the USA in the USA, unless Washington "leaders" actually wanted such acts to take place for whatever "strategic" reasons Washington "leaders" secretly had in mind; as Washington usually does, secretly.  Serious terrorist groups would have leaders who aren't unschooled in terms of Washington reality.  They might dream about attacking the USA in the USA, but once they wake up from their sleep modes, then oops, realization of having dreamt while asleep will cause them to take a very different turn or path.

No one is going to attack the USA, unless they're organized, say, by enemies WITHIN and those enemies are people in powerful positions within.  The DANGER LURKS and operates from within for/in the USA.  The only foreign concerns Americans have is stopping Washington's criminal foreign policies.  Voters have to make a big difference in 2012.

2012 elections:  I listened to an RT report yesterday at YouTube and it says that Obama received $780 MILLION in funding for his 2008 campaign for presidency.  That's an INCREDIBLY huge amount and hellbent.  Well, now it looks like he'll get $1 BILLION, if not more, this year, and Mitt Romney apparently also will.  Who the HELL runs this damn country?  It isn't taxpayers who're providing even half of these funds; surely not.  And voters think they have a chance of winning against the "elites" who provide this vast amount of campaign funding?  What the HELL is wrong with the USA?  Are we "begging" for the Book of Revelations Apocolypse to happen, or what?  I'm not asking that question to the religious fanatics.  I'm asking what I hope to be SANE citizens.  We're being drawn on the path to Hell.  Even if most of us don't end up there, it's nevertheless the path taken by our "leaders".  Well, to hell with them.  It's time for "hasta la vista, babie" with them.

Boycott that s.o.b.  Of course he's so rich that it couldn't hurt him financially if he was globally boycotted, for he already possesses far more than any sane human being could sanely "handle".  But boycotting nevertheless is the least people can do.

It's "cute" how extremely criminal Americans can freely act in ways that strongly expose their criminal natures in the USA; as long as they're rich and "support" Washington and/or its masters.

2012 is looking like it's going to be yet another bogus and so-called "election" year and the population doesn't want to conduct a real revolution, for, and in some cases, understandable reasons; but it sure seems like the "elites" want to try to drive the population in this direction.  "Apocalypse Now"?

$1bn alone would be far too much for all candidates combined, so forget two top-chosen candidates getting $1bn, or more, each.   It's completely insane.
