GORDON DUFF: Bombs, Terrorism And Manure
Blogmaster note: The Daily Telegraph (U.K.) published an interesting article that lends support to Gordon’s position. (I’ll bet you didn’t read this in your local paper):
Cargo plane bomb plot: Yemen doubts its link to the plot
Telegraph, 30 Oct 2010
[Excerpt:] – The government of Yemen has expressed astonishment at the cargo plane bomb plots, claiming there were no UPS cargo planes that had taken off from Yemen.

Bombs, Terrorism And Manure

“Is That A Bomb In Your Pants Or Are You Just Glad To See Me?”
“Worse still, the ‘terrorists’ father, described by the press as a ‘Muslim banker’ turned out to be a partner in an Israeli managed defense company and a close friend of the CIA.”
“Never was America, its freedoms and security less free and less secure as when Michael Chertoff was watching over us.”
Last week, we were told courier services were carrying powerful and undetectable bombs, sent from Yemen, mailed to “Chicago synagogues” to strike out at America’s Jewish population just before the elections. This would seem like a credible terrorist act if it were not for a few things:
· Recent “debunked” terror threats, Adam “Perlman” Gadahn, the actor playing “American Taliban” and the long dead Osama bin Laden had both issued terror alerts that had, as usual, made no reference to Israel or Palestinians. This time, the press noticed and Israel became suspect number one as to the real origin of these threats.
· Wikileaks has also been “outed” as a source unique in its protection of Israel and its interests. Reports have been proven to be, not only altered or falsified, but carefully filtered using PROMIS software, proving high level government complicity in filtering and fabricating data. Today, Israel announced that Wikileaks proves they were singled out by the U.N. for investigation for atrocities in Gaza as proven by the Goldstone Report. They now ask for a similar investigation of the United States, a nation they used to consider an ally, the nation that underwrites their economy with massive economic aid.
· Newspaper reports, so often horribly unreliable, have universally misrepresented the nature of the explosive used, PETN, its detectability and function. This is not a minor thing, not at all. Literally hundreds of reporters were fed information easily disproven in Wikipedia.
We have seen it all before. Last Christmas, the “Crotch Bomber” was another “PETN/Yemen” terror fiasco. Press stories blamed Al Qaeda and were ready to build this into a new 9/11 except that reliable witnesses, Detroit area attorneys, saw the terrorist, no passport, no visa, escorted onto the plane. Before that, newspapers said the bomber had a diplomatic passport, a visa and had “evaded” security.
Bush And Chertoff
“Security” put him on the plane, security employed by a company whose management and employees are largely IDF and Mossad and whose owners are Israeli.
Worse still, the “terrorist’s” father, described by the press as a “Muslim banker” turned out to be a partner in an Israeli managed defense company and a close friend of the CIA.
Now we have the arrest, today, of a young woman in Yemen, one with no ties to extremist organizations or terrorism. When this story is “peeled away,” beneath the “spin,” where will it go? The problem is, every story is “spin” and has to be discarded. What does this tell us?

Bomb Detection Mythology
Every newspaper in the country has reported that PETN, Pentaerythritol tetranitrate, is “undetectable.” Look at the word. See the part that says “nitrate”? Most common explosives are nitrates and there is nothing the least bit difficult about finding them. The game is simple. We now have to put a useless $5 million dollar “Michael Chertoff” package scanner in every post office in America to find explosives easily detected by 1970s technology. This is the heart of mythology and the racketeers that run, not only “counter-terrorism” but may well in fact run “terrorism” as well.
30 years ago, I was talking with my good friend Leo Crampsey about portable explosive detectors. Those of you who know Leo, know him as the “last man” up the ladder in 1975, last American to leave the embassy in Saigon as South Vietnam fell to the communists.
“In a role symbolic of its mission (the Diplomatic Security Service), one of the last people in the final helicopter to evacuate the U.S. Embassy during the fall of Saigon in 1975 was Leo Crampsey, Diplomatic Security’s regional security officer, according to the State Department.”
We had gotten a new British model, one extremely effective at detecting nitrate based explosives like PETN. It was very portable, rechargeable battery, and a good application for use by the Bureau of Diplomatic Security. Letter bombs had become a big issue and inspecting mail received by the president while traveling became the first application.
This much can probably be said, considering the years that have passed. Suffice it to say, I have been around these technologies and “counter-terrorism” for awhile and recognize the smell of “manure” in today’s press stories.
“Counter-terrorism” was a science long before 9/11 and the people of the United States had been looked after quite effectively for some time, before terrorism became an industry onto itself.
PETN is interesting stuff. It is actually a heart drug. There are more than a few ways to detect it, certainly those airport swabs can pick it up, sniffers and the newer scanners. It doesn’t hold together well so you can’t shape it as with other explosives unless you mix it with something else. It also requires a trigger of some kind, another explosive device, something that makes it even easier to detect. Ah, but the press doesn’t care about any of this, they are willing to fabricate stories about the new “magic” undetectable explosive, one that requires that airports, post offices, courier companies, all buy new inspection equipment.
Former head of Homeland Security, Michael Chertoff, represents many of the companies that make this extremely expensive equipment. Do we want to say who owns these companies? This, and a few things about Chertoff leap out at us in a second. Never was America, its freedoms and security less free and less secure as when Michael Chertoff was watching over us.
The smell we get is “false flag.”
How Big Is The Threat Of False Flag Terrorists?
“False Flag” means “terror for profit.” One thing the “9/11 Truth” movement never looks at is the money trail. Who profited from 9/11? So often the ideas about terrorism, the ones sold by the media, seem a bit thin.
“You hate America because of what? You’re kidding!”
Terrorism is 90% industry and 10% “crazy Arab extremists.” When we are told to believe a “cover story” about a terrorist attack, we are asked to discount the very well established fact that intelligence agencies are all, in reality, the real terrorist organization. They do the assassinations, the bombings and certainly are the ones who get the crazy and too often childish threats spread across the media. Terrorism is how they work. They do two things, they get information and they influence events.
This means bribe, this means blackmail but mostly it means murder, terrorism and lots and lots of doing things to blame on someone else. This, in fact, is the very heart of most intelligence agency activities and always has been. Then why does our media pretend none of this is what we know it to be when half the TV shows, books and movies we see talk about little else. Try getting a job with the Mossad or CIA if you can’t speak Arabic or look like a “cardboard cutout” terrorist.
When two idiots in Kansas City want to blow something up, probably because they have seen it done on TV so many times or just got their orders from, yes that long dead Osama bin Laden, orders relayed to them by ABC News, the “help” they get, where do you think it comes from? Look at Oklahoma City. Without delving into conspiracy theory, nothing added up there. Every terror attack since has had some kind of cover-up involved or as Colonel Shaffer calls it, “whitewash.”
Who Profits From False Flag Terror?
The first thing to come to mind is, of course, scaring the public to stop looking at their own government, its mismanagement, the massive corruption and the foreign influence that many say makes America seem more and more like a “colony.” The invasion of Iraq had some very interesting aspects to it, too many to count but these are worth looking at:
· The phony intelligence created to justify the attack on Iraq was created prior to 9/11 but was written as an answer to 9/11. Are there really psychics?
· The invasion of Iraq, in answer to 9/11 2001, was planned as early as 1999 or before, by people who weren’t even in government yet. Are there really psychics?
Look at Iraq alone. Haliburton Corporation, an oil tool company once headed by Dick Cheney began selling food, water, in fact everything imaginable to the U.S. government on “no bid” and “cost-plus” contracts with no oversight whatsoever. Dirty water, electrocuted troops, unfinished projects, massive overruns and worse were the result, that and endless billions “misplaced.” Bush political insiders formed companies overnight and were awarded contracts for everything imaginable, in reality, funding political “dirty tricks” and election rigging in the U.S. at the same time, the same way the drug profits from Afghanistan are being laundered back into congressional campaigns for the upcoming 2010 election.
Our ill planned invasion, now termed a “war crime” by almost everyone, turned into an insurgency, then a civil war and finally a total disaster for the United States, leaving Iraq unstable and believed by many under the total control of Iran.
If anyone can find a “war aim” other than stealing money from America and oil from Iraq, please let me know.
The Danger Of Press Complicity
When Israel attacked the Mavi Marmara in international waters, executing 9 humanitarian activists and then “photo-shopped” video for the press, piracy and terrorism by a government have never been as obvious. When Israel demonstrated its stranglehold on the press, suppressing news stories quite openly, it signaled to the world that we live under a real terror threat that has nothing to do with Islam or extremism.
Abuses like this, the news media totally discredited, only embolden profiteers who would use terror as a daily business practice. Yes, terrorism is nothing but a way of drumming up business, selling body scanners, bulldozers to knock down homes, drones to bomb weddings and funerals, endless “think tanks” and “consultants” who all do nothing but misdirect, misinform, mislead and, in reality, betray.
Terrorism is organized crime in its purist form, managed from Wall Street and New York, perhaps Washington, London and Tel Aviv also, maybe more so.
With the news, our military, the intelligence agencies, the drug cartels, big oil and defense all inexorably tied together financially, an endless “revolving door,” defended by a totally complicit and equally guilty press, terrorism can be expected to remain the only growth industry in the world. Thus, the only safe investment in America today…terrorism.
