CIA thwarts own new underwear bomber plot, continues trend of manufactured terror

I assume that my readers are already astute enough to see this case as nothing more than yet another attempt to justify the American police state, the expansive big brother policies and technology and the fraudulent war on terror while also pushing for nations around the world to pick up even more of the U.S.’s destructive policies.
Of course just earlier this month the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) foiled their fabricated plot as well. I went over this in the below ten minute video, along with the history of these types of operations:
Surprised? You shouldn’t be. In fact, this has become the norm for the law enforcement and intelligence communities.
Even more importantly, it completely removes the need for the unbelievably expansive American surveillance state headed up by the Department of Homeland Security and the many child agencies under their direction.
Oddly enough, the establishment media is spinning this story in the CIA’s favor, with the Associated Press opening up a story on the subject by writing, “The CIA had al-Qaida fooled from the beginning.”
Last month, American intelligence agencies supposedly became aware of Yemen’s al Qaeda affiliate group’s intention to carry out “a spectacular attack using a new, nearly undetectable bomb aboard an airliner bound for America, officials say.”
Unsurprisingly, the individual the terrorist group tapped was an asset of the CIA and Saudi intelligence.
Details are not all too plentiful just yet and the officials who spoke to the Associated Press did so anonymously.
However, we do know that the FBI is currently analyzing the explosive which was supposedly to be concealed in underwear.
Officials claimed that this device was an improved version of the bomb given to the so-called “underwear bomber” in 2009.
For those who do not remember, this case of a failed attempt to ignite explosive underwear surrounded a young man whose father attempted to warn the U.S. of his radicalization on several occasions.
A passenger on the plane, practicing attorney Kurt Haskell, testified that the bomber was escorted on to the plane by a still unknown individual.
One of the most powerful statements he made during his five minutes of testimony was the following:
“In closing I will just say that regardless of how the media and government try to shape the public perception of this case, I am convinced that Umar [Abdulmutallab, the so-called underwear bomber] was given an intentionally defective bomb by a U.S. Government agent and placed on our flight without showing a passport or going through security, to stage a false terrorist attack to be used to implement various government policies.”
Of course this case was used to push the potentially dangerous body scanners on the American people, for which they previously had no viable justification.
It remains to be seen if this is used, as the underwear bomber case and so-called shoe bomber case both were, to push some new, invasive technology or policy on the American people.
This comes as Senator Rand Paul is pushing to dissolve the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) completely while they continue to expand operations outside of airports and into the daily lives of Americans with no reason to do so.
When the American people begin to become increasingly intolerant of the TSA’s invasive tactics and dehumanizing treatment as well as the never-ending global war on terror, there has to be something done to keep us believing that this is for our own good.
This farcical case of manufactured terrorism is just another example of this principle at work. Without the CIA keeping us safe by foiling their own bomb plots, we might have real bomb plots, right?
Or, perhaps, the more logical conclusion would be that without these manufactured bomb plots, there would actually be no bomb plots.
Indeed, we see the Associated Press revealing the true motives behind this engineered plot in their article when they write:
“Security procedures at U.S. airports remained unchanged Tuesday, a reflection of both the U.S. confidence in its security systems and a recognition that the government can’t realistically expect travelers to endure much more. […] While airline checks in the United States mean passing through an onerous, sometimes embarrassing series of pat-downs and body scans, procedures overseas can be a mixed bag.”
What I gather from this is that the U.S. might begin pushing other countries to implement similarly demeaning and dehumanizing tactics in their countries as well, supposedly because their lack of grope-downs makes the U.S. vulnerable.
While the AP admits that the United States cannot actually force any other nation “to permanently adopt the expensive and intrusive measures that have become common in American airports over the past decade,” they do write that the TSA has “sent advice to some international air carriers and airports about security measures that might stave off an attack from a hidden explosive.”
Apparently the U.S. has issued this exact same advice before but this newest manufactured plot is expected to draw new attention to this “advice” which will likely end up much more closely resembling a demand based on how the U.S. has operated in recent years.
Indeed, officials are already claiming that body scanners could have detected this explosive device, which means that they will likely be pushing more nations around the globe to accept these costly, potentially dangerous and ineffective devices.
The AP writes, “Such scanners allow screeners to see objects hidden beneath a passenger’s clothes,” which is laughable seeing as a blogger was able to easily circumvent these ludicrously expensive devices.
As I said before, it remains to be seen how this will actually be leveraged in the government’s favor, but I think it is safe to assume that in one way or another, it will be.
