When nothing adds up, its time we starting looking at what we know.  Our recent terrorist, now dubbed "the crotch bomber" is another dupe.  He could have been working for anyone, drugged, brainwashed or simply influenced, maybe by crazy Arabs, maybe by the Mossad, maybe by the CIA.  We only know the game is falling apart.

We do know a couple of things.  Dad, back in Nigeria, ran the national arms industry (DICON) in partnership with Israel, in particular, the Mossad.  He was in daily contact with them.  They run everything in Nigeria, from arms production to counter-terrorism.  Though Islamic, Muttalab was a close associate of Israel.  He has been misrepresented.  His "banking" is a cover.  Next, what do we know about the two Al Qaeda leaders Bush had released, the ones who planned this?


According to ABC news, the Al Qaeda leaders running the insurgency in Yemen were released from Guantanamo, although two of the highest ranking known terrorist there, without trial.

Guantanamo prisoner #333, Muhamad Attik al-Harbi, and prisoner #372, Said Ali Shari, were sent to Saudi Arabia on Nov. 9, 2007, according to the Defense Department log of detainees who were released from American custody.

Both of the former Guantanamo detainees are described as military commanders and appear on a January, 2009 video along with the man described as the top leader of al Qaeda in Yemen, Abu Basir Naser al-Wahishi, formerly Osama bin Laden’s personal secretary.

With all the hoopla about trials in New York, not a word is said when top level terrorists are released to Saudi friends of the Bush family who let them go.  We are now fighting these two Bush friends in Yemen.  They are running a major insurgency there.  We have been using Cruise missiles and our jets to attack their bases in the last weeks.


 CBS News has learned that as early as August of 2009 the Central Intelligence Agency was picking up information on a person of interest dubbed "The Nigerian," suspected of meeting with "terrorist elements" in Yemen.

Sources tell CBS News "The Nigerian" has now turned out to be Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. But that connection was not made when Abudulmutallab’s father went to the U.S. Embassy in Nigeria three months later, on November 19, 2009. It was then he expressed deep concerns to a CIA officer about his son’s ties to extremists in Yemen, a hotbed of al Qaeda activity.


CIA admits broad information during the November interview, information not acted on in any responsible way but failed to understand that the terrorist they were warned of in November was the one they had been tracking since August. 

"We learned of him in November, when his father came to the U.S. embassy in Nigeria and sought help in finding him. We did not have his name before then," said Paul Gimigliano, a CIA spokesman. "Also in November, we worked with the embassy to ensure he was in the government’s terrorist database – including mention of his possible extremist connections in Yemen. We also forwarded key biographical information about him to the National Counterterrorism Center.


It is claimed by groups claiming to be Al Qaeda in Yemen that the Detroit attack was in retaliation to US attacks on bases in Yemen run by Al Qaeda leaders released by Bush. 

The government of Yemen, as reported in the BBC , says that the Al Qaeda terrorists, led by those released by Bush, are really Israeli agents though they have organized attacks against US targets:

Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh has said the security forces have arrested a group of alleged Islamist militants linked to Israeli intelligence. Mr Saleh did not say what evidence had been found to show the group’s links with Israel, a regional enemy of Yemen. The arrests were connected with an attack on the US embassy in Sanaa last month which killed at least 18 people, official sources were quoted saying.

"A terrorist cell was arrested and will be referred to the judicial authorities for its links with the Israeli intelligence services," Mr Saleh told a gathering at al-Mukalla University in Hadramawt province. "Details of the trial will be announced later. You will hear about what goes on in the proceedings," he added.

The 17 September attack was the second to target the US embassy since April. Militants detonated car bombs before firing rockets at the heavily fortified building.

Mr Saleh did not identify the suspects, but official sources were quoted saying it was same cell – led by a militant called Abu al-Ghaith al-Yamani – whose arrest was announced a week after the attack.

With continual reports from Pakistan that India and Israel have been involved in terrorst attacks against US supporters there and the recent reports that the Detroit bomber was assisted by an Indian while boarding in Amsterdam and partially confirmed reports that a second bomber, an Indian, was arrested and taken from the plane in Detroit.  MILive broke this story in the US which originated with Reuters:

Reuters reports Dutch military police are investigating claims that an accomplice may have helped Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab board Northwest Flight 253 in Amsterdam on Christmas day without a passport.

Kurt Haskell of Newport, Mich., took to the comments section of this Web site early Saturday to share his story: That he and his wife, Lori, saw a well-dressed man help Abdulmutallab board the flight without a passport under the guise he was a Sudanese refugee. The military police have already said Abdulmutallab did not go through passport control at Schiphol when he arrived from Lagos.

In another interview on Inside Edition, Haskell described what happened:

A passenger has come forward with disturbing new details about the plot to bring down a jet, including the astonishing claim that the accused terrorist was able to board the plane without a passport.

Kurt Haskell showed INSIDE EDITION his boarding pass for Northwest flight 253 from Amsterdam to Detroit. The lawyer, who lives outside Detroit, was returning home from an African safari when he says he saw the terror suspect, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallabm, and another man, who he thought was Indian, approach the ticket agent.

"Only the Indian man spoke," says Haskell, "And what he said was, ‘This man needs to board the plane but he doesn’t have a passport.’ "

"His clothes were like jeans and a t-shirt or something, he looked kind of thin, like a 16-year-old teenager, and the other man, looked like he was 50 years old, looked like he was a wealthy, Indian man. I just couldn’t figure out why they were together," Haskell tells INSIDE EDITION.

An earlier CBS news report today stated:

CBS News has learned the State Department system designed to keep track of active U.S. visas twice failed to reveal Nigerian terror suspect Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab had been issued an active visa allowing him multiple entries into the United States.

According to a law enforcement source, the first failure came on Nov. 19, 2009, the very same day Abdulmutallab father’s, Dr. Umaru Mutallab, a prominent banking official in Nigeria, expressed deep concern to officials at the U.S. Embassy in Abjua, Nigeria, that his 23-year-old son had fallen under the influence of "religious extremists" in Yemen.

The second failure to flag an active visa belonging to Abdulmuttalab occurred the very next day in Washington, after Mutallab’s concerns were forwarded to officials there. It was only after the Christmas Day terror attack in Detroit that U.S. officials learned that Abdulmuttalab had been issued a visa by the U.S. Embassy in London valid from June 16, 2008, through June 12, 2010. ..

Thus, in another set of coincidences, the system put in place after 9/11, meant to prevent the misuse of student visas for terrorist acts, single, Islamic engineering students tied to religious extremists being a risk factor in that area, failed totally.

Picture the November 19 interview.  A poor taxi driver comes to the US embassy:  "My son, he is hanging around with a rough crowd.  He says he wants to blow something up!"

No, wait, that was someone else.  Picture the November 19 interview.  One of the richest people in the world, head of a major bank, cabinet minister, head of the national armaments industry, close associate of the US Ambassador and someone known around the world makes an appointment to come to the US embassy.

He wouldn’t have met a clerk.  The US Ambassador himself would have arranged for the highest ranking officer in the embassy hold the interview.  Mr. Muttalab would have been greeted by the ambassador when he came to the embassy.


We have confirmed that Mutallah met with the CIA chief of station in Nigeria.

Imagine this person of great power and influence, with friends at the highest levels of the CIA and Mossad.  When he came to announce his son may be a terrorist, he was a loving father asking for help?  He would have made this points:

My son is a danger to himself and others, please keep him safe
Do not allow my son to travel to the United States under any imaginable circumstances as he is likely to be involved in acts of terrorism
Please assure me that you will act immediately and contact me as to what measures you have taken
Were any of this true, this is what would have been said.  Were any of what we have been told true, none of what we saw in Detroit could have happened.  What we know is that something very different than this really happened.  Go ahead and Google "muttalab, nigeria, bank, mossad, defense"

Let’s look at the Wayne Marsden report on the failures at the airport in Amsterdam along with direct ties between this case and the shoe bomber Richard Reid:

The Mutallab case also resembles that of another
attempted plane bombing, that of the hapless "shoe bomber" Richard

It has also been revealed that Mutallab is the son of Alhaji Umaru
Mutallab, the former chairman of First Bank of Nigeria. According to
This Day of Lagos, the elder Mutallab claims he reported the
extremist views of his son to Nigerian security agencies, as well as
to the U.S. embassy in Abuja, yet no attempt was made to prevent the
radically-inclined Nigerian student to board the plane in Schiphol.
The attempted plane bomber was schooled at the British International
School in Lome, Togo and attended college in London and moved to
Egypt and Dubai. The elder Mutallab is a frequent visitor to the
United States and he is married to a Yemeni woman. …

Marsden points out the well established family ties to Yemen thru his wife.  He further points out how Israel managed to bring the terrorist son of Mutallab through multiple airport security obstacles with the same ease the United States shephered a known terrorist through a visa process.  What we hadn’t seen is how much this process had been tested during the "shoe bomber" episode.

For a number of years, passengers at Schiphol flying to the United
States have been subjected to intense grilling by security personnel
linked to an Israeli firm.

US bound passengers at Schiphol are asked a number of personal questions, including where
they have stayed either in the Netherlands or in their country of
origin. Hotel receipts are routinely requested by security personnel
and the addresses of private temporary residences are recorded.
Mutallab boarded a KLM flight in Lagos for Schiphol where he
transited for his onward flight to Detroit on Northwest/Delta.

Six months prior to Reid’s near shoe bombing of American Airlines
flight 63 from Paris to Miami in December 2001, while memories of
9/11 were still fresh in everyone’s mind, Reid attempted to board an
El Al flight from Schiphol to Tel Aviv.

Reid was taken aside by El Al
security and identified as a terrorist suspect. Reid paid for a
one-way ticket with cash and would not reveal what he planned to do
in Israel.

However, rather than turning Reid into Dutch security for
further action, he was allowed to board the El Al flight by Israel’s
Shin Bet security so his movements during his five days in Israel
could be monitored.

Six months later, Reid attempted to ignite his
shoe on the flight from Paris to Miami. Israel had not informed
British, American, or any other security agency of the concerns about
Reid. Reid’s aunt, Claudette Lewis who raised Reid in south London,
was quoted as saying she believed her nephew had been "brainwashed."

Reid later said El Al failed to detect that he had explosives in his
shoes on the flight to Tel Aviv, an amazing revelation considering
the Israeli airline’s tight security.
The links between El Al security and Mossad are extremely close with
abundant cross-pollination of senior personnel back and forth.

The security company that allowed Reid to board American Airlines 63
at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris was ICTS (International
Consultants on Targeted Security) International. ICTS’s senior
management are all ex-Israeli security officials, many of whom worked
for El Al security.

It was ICTS that largely developed the passenger "profiling"
procedures used at Schiphol and other airports around the world
through its subsidiary, ICTS Holland Products BV.


Let’s review what we know thus far:

Our terrorist traveled to Yemen to meet with terrorist there
The terrorists in Yemen had been in Guantanamo but had been ordered released by the Bush Administration though they were, perhaps the most dangerous detainees held
The government of Yemen tells us that Islamic terrorists there have been arrested who have proven ties to Israeli intelligence
Our terrorists father, though we are told is a retired "Nigerian banker" actually ran their defense industry in close cooperation with Israeli Intelligence (Mossad)
Our terrorist’s visa to the US was never with withdrawn, though he was on a "terrorist watchlist"
Our terrorist, though flying from Nigeria, entered the Netherlands without passing thru customs, something impossible to do without assistance from an intelligence agency
Our terrorist, while at the Amsterdam airport, was being assisted by a man appearing to be Indian, who claimed our Nigerian terrorist was a Sudanese refugee with no passport (no passport was used entering the EU, something technically impossible)
However, Dutch authorities, the same ones who confirmed he entered the country with no passport also confirmed he had a valid US visa, though on a terrorist watch list that is shared with Dutch authorities.
Airport security in Amsterdam is contracted to an Israeli controlled company with, not only the most sophisticated technologies, but, in fact, the company that had developed the concept of security profiling.
The parallels between this case and the Richard Reid "shoe bomber" case are much more than admitted.

We keep going back to 2007.  Why were these terrorists released to Saudi custody?  Why did Saudi Arabia release them soon afterward?  With the 2nd major terrorist front in the world being Yemen and the terrorist operation there under the control of released Bush detainees, there is reason for suspicion.

While we have all of these facts, easily verifiable, we have a much stronger case against the Bush Administration or Israel than Al Qaeda.  There is no real evidence that Al Qaeda would be operating in Yemen without American or Saudi help and even, as stated by the Government of Yemen, direct material assistance from Israel. 

Why would such a thing be done, something against all reason unless terrorism itself was part of a larger regional plan and a "war on terror" was only a ruse.

When Pakistan comes to us and says that Israel and India are involved in terrorism there and we ignore it, is it because it isn’t credible or because the US government has been involved, as we seem to be involved in Yemen?


Why are we satisfied to take one person into custody, one person who ties to so many irregularities and ask nothing else?

As with 9/11 and so many other seeminly impossible times when so many things go wrong that only great power and the cooperation of many agencies in many countries could make it possible, why do we ask nothing.

We have a major investigation in Nigeria, not only of the father and his connections to Israel but our own embassy and why they left this visa alone when the individual was a known terrorist.

How could this terrorist travel to Yemen to meet with an organization run by former detainees released by Bush and his Saudi friends, former detainees that Yemen claims are working for israel?  How could he do this and be allowed to return to Nigeria, a country whose intelligence services are tied to Israel and trained by Israel.  They would have known in a second.

How did this terrorist enter the Netherlands without showing a passport?  Try it.  You will meet lots of Dutch people who will keep you in a small room for hours, days even.  It is absolutely impossible.

People are picked up in the EU while in passport control for non-payment of child support.  I am being told they can’t find a terrorist?

We haven’t begun to discover how he got past security equipment and screening.  It isn’t like he isn’t the highest profile potential terrorist who has entered Nigeria in decades.  He is Islamic, young and traveling alone.  Ask any young Islamic traveler how many times they have been searched.

Is is on a terrorist watchlist.  This is like the "no fly list" on steroids.  You aren’t just denied flight, you are put under immediate surveillance.

If he had shown his passport, it would have shown him entering Yemen, a known terrorist training ground.  This would have stopped him also.

With the Bush administration releasing terrorist leaders and shepherding them back into their former profession, with our embassy, State Department, Homeland Security and every other organization we spent so many billions of dollars to "coordinate" all failing, is there, just perhaps, a minor sign of conspiracy?

I would call President Obama to account for failures to discover what appears to be a conspiracy of his predecessor but, as the GOP blogs that fill the internet are working overtime to obscure the facts and place the blame on Obama alone, there could be no greater proof of non-involvement.

Frankly, if the Obama administration was involved with Bush, as it seems they are, then the Bush/Cheney "disinformation" attack dogs would be leashed.  They are not.  Thus, Bush and Cheney should be targeted for investigation.

The Nigerian terrorist suspect accused of attempting to blow up a US airliner on Christmas Day had been arranged by the Israeli-owned 'International Consultants on Targeted Security' to perform a “walk around” without a passport in Amsterdam.

Despite tighter screening processes since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Northwest Airlines Flight 253 experienced no delays in takeoff. According to the Mathaba News Agency “It is evident that clearing the terrorist with higher-ups took a matter of a minute or so and the Indian man, who had arranged the boarding, obviously had a high-level security pass.

Then, during the flight, onlookers noted that another passenger spent a great deal of time filming the 23-year-old Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab with his camcorder. Even stranger, once the suspect tried to ignite his “crotch bomb,” throughout the incident, the man continued filming the terrorist, calmly and without interruption.

Next, after the plane landed, another Indian man was led away in handcuffs after the bomb-sniffing dogs detected explosives in his luggage. Officials, however, have refused to release the Schiphol CCTV airport footage from Amsterdam, the air-bound “video passenger” film, or the identity of the man arrested in Detroit.

The Indian link doesn't seem surprising since Israel and India are very close business partners, especially via their military contracts. Also, the Indian intelligence agency works hand-in-hand with Israel.

Abdulmutallab's home country, Nigeria, is also clandestinely controlled by the Israeli army and Mossad.

Mossad's reach extends even further, directly into Yemen. On Oct. 7, 2008, Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh said that security forces had arrested a group of militants linked to the Israeli intelligence agency.

Abdulmutallab has at times denied any association with the militant al-Qaeda group and claimed that he was trained in Yemen. Washington, however, accuses him of being instructed in the Arab country, which US authorities claim is infested with al-Qaeda militants.

According to military analyst and counterinsurgency specialist Gordon Duff, “There is no al-Qaeda in Yemen. George Bush released a couple of phony operatives from Guantanamo, and after traveling to the Middle East, they hooked up with the Mossad. The only reason Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez released them is because they're assets.”

Abdulmutallab's story is intended to keep ratcheting up Orwellian-style trauma and project Yemen, as well as the African continent, are the brand-new focus of the American so-called 'war on terror.'

If you know the details of this bombing scare, then you should also be aware of another scare of explosive found hidden in a package on a plane in the United Arab Emirates last friday. CNN says it is same with that used by the nigerian bomber as per this topic.......ref link:

"PETN was allegedly one of the components of the bomb concealed by Umar Farouk AbdulMutallab, the Nigerian man accused of trying to set off a bomb hidden in his underwear aboard a Northwest Airlines flight as it approached Detroit, Michigan, on December 25"

"The thinking is it's the same person or group of people that built the underwear bomb, because of the way it's put together," said the official, who had been briefed by multiple U.S. authorities and law enforcement sources. "But this one is about four times as powerful."

If you follow me, then you know this is another government false flag plot. It always means they are up to something that is no good for the people.

This is the same type of operation with madrid bombing, 9/11 and london 7/7.

Connecting The Don White

Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab attempted to detonate the explosive pentaerythritol tetranitrate (PETN)—which he had concealed in his underwear—but all he could get going was a “short” fire. (Forgive the pun).

It usually requires a heavy spark or the right amount of acid to ignite plastique. Umar allegedly had problems pouring acid through a funnel and all he got was a small fire.

Maybe tests will show that both the acid and the PETN were defective on purpose and the CIA knew they would not create an explosion.

Reasons This Was An Orchestrated Event?

1.       He used cash to buy a ticket

2.       It was a one-way ticket to the United States

3.       He purchased it at the last minute

4.       He carried no luggage

5.       He was on a terrorist watch list

6.       His father – worst of all - had communicated to the U.S. Embassy in Nigeria in November that Abdulmutallab had been radicalized and may be planning a terrorist attack.

7.       He lacked a passport

8.       One or more witnesses including passenger Kurt Haskell claimed that a well-dressed Indian man had escorted Abdulmutallab to the ticket counter and told a ticket agent that Abdulmutallab didn’t have a passport but needed to get on the plane. Haskell’s story has since been corroborated by another passenger who has asked not to be identified, according to a blog posted by Haskell’s wife, Lori. Dutch authorities deny this but refuse to release surveillance video of the airport terminal.

9.       Haskell has also said another Indian man was arrested after the flight landed. But the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) disputes Haskell’s version of the story.

10.   The FBI has orchestrated a cover-up by giving at least four different accounts of what happened once the plane was on the ground.

The story really begins a couple of years ago.

1. In November 2007 two Guantanamo Bay prisoners were released to Saudi Arabia.

2. President Bush approved this release.

3. They went to Yemen where they joined with the top leader of al-Qaida in Yemen and went to work.

4. As CBS News has reported, in August 2009 the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) picked up information on a person of interest dubbed “The Nigerian.” He was said to have met with “terrorist elements” in Yemen.

5. The Nigerian has turned out to be Abdulmutallab.

6. But, surprisingly, that connection was not made when Abdulmutallab’s father went to the U.S. Embassy on Nov. 19.

7. There are also reports out of the United Kingdom that MI5 had warned the CIA about him in 2008 as well.

8. Abdulmutallab’s visa was not revoked, despite his father’s disclosure to U.S. authorities.

9. Neither was his named placed on a no-fly list.

No one, and I mean no one, will accept the idea that all of these things could occur without the full knowledge of the CIA and the State Department. It simply is not believable. It is impossible to assume that series of stupid mistakes or accidents happened. Maybe one mistake, but not all twenty-four of them, especially numbers eight and nine – the failure to revoke the visa and put his name on a no-fly list. With what we knew, to do so would be an act of treason.

If after an investigation President Obama finds that, indeed, it all happened by such mistakes made by the CIA and the State Department, which I find incredible, then if public pressure can’t get Obama to fire CIA director Leon Panetta and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, in the spirit of promised transparency Obama should fess up to this grand masquerade in the State of the Union Address in February and admit his complicity and guilt. Then, let’s throw the bum out of office in 2012 or call for his impeachment.

That an oversight like this could occur by accident, without the knowledge of the CIA and U.S. State Department, is not believable. Either way, heads should roll.

As Gordon Duff reports in Veterans Today, groups claiming to be al-Qaida in Yemen say the Detroit attack was in retaliation for U.S. cruise missile attacks on bases in Yemen. According to a report by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), the al-Qaida terrorists released from Guantanamo by Bush are really Israeli intelligence agents.

This was allegedly stated by Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh when he announced the arrest of a group of alleged Islamist militants. He did not say what evidence pointed toward a link with Israel.

Duff told (AFP) that there is no al-Qaida in Yemen. But this goes against all the “intelligence” we have been reading about Yemen.

“George Bush released a couple of phony operatives from Guantanamo, and after travelling to the Middle East, they hooked up with [the Israeli intelligence agency] Mossad? Hard to believe, but maybe so.

The only reason Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez released them is because they’re assets,” Duff told AFP.

And, as Duff reports, Abdulmutallab’s father, Alhaji Umaru Abdul Mutallab, also has ties to Mossad, as well as the CIA station chief and U.S. Ambassador in Nigeria. (Not any more. After these kinds of reports are communicated, his usefulness is nil.)

The alleged underwear bomber’s father allegedly is one of the richest men in the world and recently retired as chairman of Nigeria’s First Bank. He also serves on the board of a number of Nigerian corporations and runs the nation’s national arms industry in partnership with Mossad.

Something well known and believable is that Israeli intelligence officers have been training Nigerian security forces for some time. This came out in Daily Trust, a Nigerian paper. Reports show that Mossad trains the military, sells weapons, runs the airports and wields power over Defense Industries Corporation (DICON) in Nigeria, according to AFP.

In an interview with AFP, Duff said he’s not surprised that a man of Indian descent has been tied in with the Abdulmtullab’s bombing attempt. Israel and India are close business partners, especially via their military contracts. He also said the Indian intelligence agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) works hand-in-hand with Israel.

As investigative journalist Wayne Madsen wrote in Wayne Madsen Report (WMR), Asian intelligence believes the Indian man who helped Abdulmtullab through security was a RAW agent who used his influence to convince airline and airport security personnel that Abdulmtullab was a bona fide Sudanese refuge.

Madsen reports that the security company that cleared Abdulmtullab in Schiphol is the Israeli-owned International Consultants on Targeted Security (ICTS). Many of ICTS’s officers are former Israeli intelligence agents. The online version of Israel’s Haaretz newspaper,, reports the failure of ICTS, saying: “Even if U.S. intelligence failed and the name of the Nigerian passenger was not pinpointed as a suspect for the airline, he should have stirred the suspicion of the security officers. His age, name, illogical travel route, high-priced ticket purchased as the last minute, his boarding without luggage (only a carry-on) and on and on.

Terror Fever
Terror Fever has celebrated its 10th birthday. You may well think that all the hysteria that brought us the full-body scanner as a security measure began with 9/11, but you would be wrong. Extreme measures were already being taken a year before at around the same time GW Bush was dubiously winning his first electoral victory. The UK’s Terrorism Act 2000, for example, which included such Draconian measures as Stop and Search procedures based on your appearance or treating organisations that fight against state led torture, etc. as terrorist groups, etc. They sought to fight a phantom menace before most of the world had even heard mention of al Qaeda. Today, the CIA coined term for “the database” (al Qaeda) has been entered into every dictionary in every language worldwide.

Reid tried to set fire to the explosives in his shoe in spite of having a liquid detonator (PETN)
You may also be mistaken about what you consider to have been the most significant political soundbite ever uttered. I have no doubt it was when Bush Jr. addressed the world’s governments post 9/11 and threatened “you are either with us or with the terrorists”. Paradoxical for most, plain surreal for others. From that moment, who would dare question the demands of the US government in their War on Terror? Those who have dared have suffered the Neo-Con bullies within the US government with their sabre-rattling, and cruise missile showers.

In spite of all the warnings, in spite of all the intelligence, in spite of all the defence measures already in place, 9/11 happened and a fearful new chapter opened in the history books. Questions were raised, theories debated and new national security measures were eagerly sought. In the shock and awe of the TV images lower-end officials and politicians, bewildered by what had happened, fell over themselves in order to appear to be doing something… anything.

As a post 9/11 response to the threat posed by boxcutters, the sensitivity of the metal detector arches at airports was tweaked and we were all told to remove our belts before passing security. Then 3 months later, a fool with no proven connection to any terrorist networks carved out holes in the heels of his shoes in which he carried a small amount of potentially explosive material that he did not know how to handle, onto an American Airlines flight from Paris Charles de Gaulle. Ever since we have been told to remove our shoes at the airport.

Enter Rapiscan

Rapiscanned: Nothing left to declare
The following year the answer to the problem of how to detect weapons hidden in shoes and pockets was answered in the form of the Rapiscan Secure 1000 backscatter scanner. Rapiscan, subsidiary of OSI Systems, manufacturer of security and medical scanning equipment, had come up with a monster. While several of those panicked low-level politicians must have cheered with Rapiscan’s release, most others were sucking through their teeth. Even in the aftermath of the most terrifying TV horror show of all time, the 200-times-a-day slow-motion repeat sequences on CNN and the BBC, even in the midsts of the “T” word being mentioned thousands of times per hour on every network and radio station, many in government felt that a machine that striped innocent people naked was a step too far.

Interestingly enough, even today some 8 years later, the scanner programme is often said to still be in ‘trials’. These trials were tentatively initiated with as little press coverage as possible and with no chance for public debate whatsoever. As early as 2006, body scanners were being tested at Liverpool Street train station in London and later on at Paddington station and even Heathrow airport back as early as 2004.

However, the UK trials proved to be resounding failure causing extensive delays and false alarms. The scanner system was not going to work. To add insult to injury L3 had come up with the Millimetre Wave scanner and Rapiscan had its first serious competitor. L3, the bastard love child of the Lehman Brothers and Lockheed (Wow! What pedigree!) and with the full force of the military lobby behind it, had opted for the lesser of two evils in its technology. Whereas everyone knew that the ionising radiation of the Rapiscan scanner could provoke cancer, the L3 technology was untested and therefore showed no negative side-effects. On top of that, the quality of image was far below that of the Rapiscan machine. But who cared? What was important was to be seen doing something to join in the Bush administration’s War on Terror.

In 2008, the European Commission prepared a report on scanner use at EU airports which favoured full-body scanners. However, the EU parliament was not buying it and through fears of violating essential EU citizens’ rights, voted down a common policy on scanner use. All the same, Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport had already decided to adopt L3′s scanners. L3′s machine was a mere side-line to their overinflated defence contracts and so they could weather any storm, EU common policy or not.

OSI (Rapiscan) share price plummets with EU rejection followed by a sharp recovery with underwear bomber at the end of 2009
The future for Rapiscan and its parent company OSI, however, was bleak. They had bet most of their chips on their backscatter technology and the inferior and more costly machines were winning the day. The OSI share price began to plummet and only a miracle could revive their fortunes. What they needed was a double-barrelled miracle that would reopen interest in their product and simultaneously spit in the eye of their competitor.

Enter the Underwear Bomber.
I find it hard to believe that it was simply a coincidence that this miracle decided to pass through Schiphol, the only EU airport to wholeheartedly embrace L3 Millimetre wave scanners.

The miracle came in the form of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who like Richard Reid before him, was another inept misfit with no idea of how to make or detonate a bomb. Son of a successful Nigerian banker, this troubled youth was planning to kill himself. He strived attention, the kind that CNN gives you 200 times a day and travelled to London and Yemen for ideas, and like so ignored many kids, he got in with the wrong crowd.

On Christmas day 2009 he boarded a flight from Lagos, Nigeria to Schiphol, Holland where he would catch his connecting flight to Detroit. Hidden in his underwear were two plastic bags with PETN and TAPN, the ingredients to make a plastic explosive, exactly the same explosive carried by Richard Reid in 2001. The shoe bomber’s ineptitude had known no bounds, if the official story is to be believed. Reid had tried detonate his explosive with a cigarette lighter and a fuse. But the explosive he had detonates when its two principal ingredients are mixed. The ‘official’ story of his actions did not make any sense, and will never as Reid is currently serving 3 life sentences in the US and has been forbidden access to the press. Abdulmutallab’s plan was to mix the two liquids aboard the plane while flying over Detroit. But again, his plan was entirely flawed. Laboratory conditions and expert hands would be required to create a reaction violent enough to explode the material he was carrying. Instead, his unsteady hands just provoked fire and noxious smoke from his underpants. It also provoked enough of a political kneejerk reaction to revive the dying beast of Rapiscan design.

Had the mysterious al Qaeda not learned how to make a bomb in the 8 years between Reid and Abdulmutallab?

There were enormous anomolies in what was to be the official story from early on. Firstly, Abdulmutallab was already on CIA and British intelligence watch lists, yet managed to board the flight. His own father had reported his son’s intentions to the CIA office in Lagos two weeks before the event, yet he was still able to board the flight. An updated no-fly list was sent to Schiphol with his name on it, but, we are told, arrived too late. For some reason the body scanners which had already been in use for the two years previous were not switched on that day. Is this yet another string of faux pas and phyuk ups just like we heard of on the 11th of September 2001, or on the 11th of March 2004 in Madrid or even on the 7th of July 2005 in London? Or was there much more to the story?

According to eye-witness testimony on the ground, Abdulmutallab, dishevelled and without so much as a jacket or luggage on a flight to Detroit in winter, was accompanied by a “nicely dressed Indian-looking man” at the airport. Michigan attorneys Kurt and Lori Haskell waiting for check in to begin noticed the Indian man accompanying what they would later recognise as Abdulmutallab.

“My wife and I were playing cards directly in front of the check in counter. This is what I saw:
An Indian man in a nicely dressed suit around age 50 approached the check in counter with the terrorist and said “This man needs to get on this flight and he has no passport.” The two of them were an odd pair as the terrorist is a short, black man that looked like he was very poor and looks around age 17. It did not cross my mind that they were terrorists, only that the two looked weird together. The ticket taker said “you can’t board without a passport”. The Indian man then replied, “He is from Sudan, we do this all the time”. I can only take from this to mean that it is difficult to get passports from Sudan and this was some sort of sympathy ploy. The ticket taker then said “You will have to talk to my manager”, and sent the two down a hallway. I never saw the Indian man again as he wasn’t on the flight. It was also weird that the terrorist never said a word in this exchange. Anyway, somehow, the terrorist still made it onto the plane. I am not sure if it was a bribe or just sympathy from the security manager.”
Kurt Haskell

The scene mirrored perfectly the prediction of the US Secretary of Homeland Security, Michael Chertoff in his report presented in 2008 which foresaw that “terrorists” would board planes claiming to be refugees or asylum seekers in order to exploit foreign travel channels. I am always amazed at the foresight of politicians and policy makers and my jaw then hits the ground when these so-called terrorists waltz nonchelantly onto an international flight unimpeded.

Who the “nicely dressed Indian man” was is key to the whole story as well as to the excuse for the mass roll-out of body scanners worldwide. Why was he helping the Nigerian kid? How did he know him? The FBI have said that they there was no Indian man and just to prove it, they and the Dutch security forces have decided to withhold all CCTV footage from Schiphol that day.

At Detroit another Indian looking man from the flight, younger this time (the man in orange) was taken aside for questioning after police sniffer dogs reacted to something in his hand luggage, and was soon released without charges. He was also released and left the airport facilities before the rest of the passengers. Who was he? The FBI say they have eliminated him from their enquiries. Initially they had denied all knowledge of the man, changing their official story 5 times. They later admitted to his existance when other witnesses spoke of him

During the incident when almost everyone was buckling up their seatbelts and expecting the worst, another man was standing calmly and filming the whole event. He has never come forward and presented his film publicly. Who was he and why was he so calm? Did he know something the other passengers did not? Why was he filming? The FBI make no mention of him whatsoever.

The Haskells, of course, were not the only witnesses to the crimes and weirdness that day. They were the just the only ones brave enough to come forward and speak out against the lies. Some have corroborated Kurt and Lori’s story in private, but few have spoken out publicly about it. Likewise, no one has corroborated the “official” story either. On the 25th of December 2009 something was seen. It was considered to be far more frightening than a man with his underpants on fire. Something frightening enough to keep the silence of scores of passengers.

The Chertoff Connection and ICTS
Everyone must understand that ICTS is the worst airport security company ever to have existed…. FACT. They were running the show at Schiphol that day, just as they were at Boston’s Logan on 11th of September 2001, and as well when Richard Reid boarded his flight at Charles de Gaulle. This is the security company made up of crack Israeli ex Shin Bet agents, expert in counter-terrorism, that has the worst airport security track record in history. Prior to the 3 biggest air-terrorist acts in recent history this company actually managed to TURN OFF all procedures just at the moment when the terrorists were passing security. Mohamed Atta managed to breeze through the magnetic detectors with his boxcutters without so much as a beep. Richard Reid had already been identified as a potential threat, yet was allowed to board his flight. Abdulmutallab had all the markings of a suicide bomber and even his own father had reported him two weeks before, and the scanners just happened to be switched off that day. Either this company is really, really unlucky or its Israeli owners had a side-line more profitable than its airport security racket.

Michael Chertoff did not consider this relevant. He only thought it appropriate to throw more money at airport security.

Ex US Secretary of Homeland Security under JW Bush and co-author of the controversial Patriot Act, Michael Chertoff was one of the first to shout from the rooftops his idea of the cure to the problem. He was under no doubt that what the world needed was full-body scanners at all international airports. He also claimed that if they [the US] had been in charge of security that day, the flight 253 incident would never have happened. Ha ha ha! US Customs officers WERE there, so why were they not interviewing passengers?

Then there are Chertoff’s business interests to consider. The Chertoff Group had actually been contracted by Rapiscan to sell their products. And here was an advisor to the Secretary of Homeland security peddling his client’s wares shamelessly on CNN. Advisor to Janet Napolitano, he was telling her that the US needed body scanners and at the same time was receiving money directly from one of the principal manufacturers of scanners – Rapiscan.


I don’t know about you, but that seems to me to be the ingredients for the biggest scandal since Watergate.

<a href="" target="_blank" class="aeva_link bbc_link new_win" rel="nofollow">Michael Chertoff works with company that sells body scanners</a>

Follow the Money Trail

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.“  US Constitution, 4th Amendment

Everyone knows that the government, no matter how “Democratic” you think it is, is a closed shop. It will never be revealed exactly how much of a financial interest Chertoff ever had in the scanners. That is why, some 10 months later, even Kurt and Lori Haskell have not been allowed access to the CCTV footage of that day at Schiphol to confirm their eye-witness testimony. If anyone out there is the eternal optimist, today on the news I heard that the US government has just released the ‘remastered’ version of the moon landings- Photoshopped to hell to cover up those conflicting shadows. So, don’t hold your breath waiting for the Schiphol tapes.

In investigating any crime, all avenues of possible responsibility have to be explored. A rushed nonsensical excuse of a story, which the official story was, can never reveal even a fraction of the truth. Motive and probable cause should be meticulously examined. Was the initial charge laid against Abdumutallab the full story? Until the identities of all the players have been revealed, we will never know. The excuse given for not releasing certain information, such as the CCTV footage from both Schiphol and Detroit, has always been “National Security”. But what kind of significant threat to National Security is a terrorist network that cannot train its own operatives in bomb manufacturing and that is incapable of learning the mistakes of a failed operation 8 years before? Are our nations really at threat from the likes of Abdulmutallab and Reid currently serving jailtime in US prisons? I doubt it.

The smartly dressed Indian man as well as the Indian man in orange remain key to this case. They are, in themselves, reason for a fully public and independent enquiry (Chertoff is another). Without them there are far too many gaps in this puzzle.

The questions I asked when I wrote a piece on the issue were: Who was that well dressed man, Why did he lie that Farouk was from Sudan,  What did he mean by saying ‘we do this all the time’, And who is the’ we’ he was referring to?  My conclusion then was that Farouk was abducted and then drugged, made to look like a Sudanese refugee and then put on board by a secret service agent authoritative enough to say ‘We do this all the time’ without raising an alarm. This same man set him on fire and got the fire extinguishers on time before it got out of hand. This is because the plane was never meant to be brought down in the first place. The idea behind all this was to stage a terror hoax in order to 1. Stop President Obama from closing down Guantanamo and releasing all the inmates within a year like he promised. 2. Stop his administration from ending the PATRIOTS ACT, a series of legislations aimed at curbing the personal liberties of American’s which was due to expire on New Year’s eve.  And finally silence all those voices calling for another probe of 9/11 and the possible prosecution of Bush and his cohorts by the Obama Administration, amongst other reasons.

Youy are very correct. The whole idea is to erode people of their freedom and keep in place, laws that will make us slaves again. I have a very disturbing piece about the Naija and the so called Boko Haram. It is even worse than all these. This is why i belief they are about to step up their agenda on Naija. There was no Boko Haram bombing the UN building in Abuja..........I could take a risk and share a video of ............remember when they said they killed the Boko Haram Leader??? well...................ask me, and I'll take that risk!!
