Feinstein: Halt transfers to Yemen

Feinstein joins a chorus of Republicans who have issued warnings about the release of detainees in the aftermath of Friday’s attempted attack on the passenger jet.

Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) on Tuesday sent a letter to President Barack Obama asking him to halt the transfer of six Guantanamo detainees to Yemen given the danger they realize that country now poses.

Should Khalid Shaikh Mohammed go free? The torture of a terrorist

Christopher King argues the case for releasing Al-Qaeda suspect Khalid Shaikh Mohammed in order to highlight the issues involved that go much further than punishing a terrorist.

”The crimes against Mohammed are so egregious that they have undermined both the foundations of Western law and fundamental humanitarian principles; they have regressed the relationship of the individual to the state by half a millennium; they have demonstrated that the USA regards foreigners as outside law and unworthy of humanitarian treatment. Mohammed has been subjected to crimes of incredible gravity by the American state.

PsyOp Internet battle for Hearts, and Minds

The Internet revolution has changed the face of our planet. Over the last 20 years there's been a complete transformation of the way we live, conduct business, and share information. In the same amount of time, information technology has helped bring countless atrocities committed by governments, and global corporations into view. We've seen the rise of groups like "We Are Change", and birthing of the "Truth Movement"; which has kicked off a viral, and grassroots information wave. The Internet's been in many regards a saving grace of mankind, and in the same likeness the greatest threat to the establishment!

Dutch probe claims of Nigerian bomber accomplice

A U.S. couple on the flight, Kurt and Lori Haskell, told Reuters and other news agencies that they saw a tall, well-dressed man aged about 50 with the suspect Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab on Friday morning at Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport.
The Haskells have claimed the man spoke for Abdulmutallab and attempted to get him aboard Northwest flight 253 without a passport.

"At this moment we have no information on whether there was another guy," the military police spokesman said. "We are checking all clues and information we get."

Economist: Health Care Bill "Is Just Another Bailout Of The Financial System"

Wall Street’s newest and bestest gamble: there is a huge untapped market of some 50 million people who are not paying insurance premiums—and the number grows every year because employers drop coverage and people can’t afford premiums. Solution? Health insurance “reform” that requires everyone to turn over their pay to Wall Street. Can’t afford the premiums? That is OK—Uncle Sam will kick in a few hundred billion to help out the insurers. Of course, do not expect more health care or better health outcomes because that has nothing to do with “reform” ... Wall Street’s insurers... see a missed opportunity. They’ll collect the extra premiums and deny the claims.

Second person was detained by U.S. Customs after alleged attack on Flight 253

Bill Carter, a spokesman with the FBI in Washington, D.C., said in an interview Tuesday that Abdulmutallab was the only person arrested or charged in relation to Friday's foiled attack.

The news about a person being taken into custody comes after two passengers aboard Northwest Airlines Flight 253 said they saw a second man being taken away in handcuffs on Christmas Day while they and others were waiting to be interviewed by FBI agents at the airport. Smith was unable to say whether that man was the person detained by customs officials.

CLIMATEGATE - Triffids are recruited in the global warming debate

About half way through the first part (shown on BBC1 at primetime on Monday night) we learned that the monstrous, flesh-eating giant plants had, in this incarnation, been deliberately farmed for their oil - a safe alternative fuel which, as the hero explained while trying to extricate one his limbs from the grasp of a rampaging triffid, had “saved us from global warming”.

I don’t know how this struck you but in my household it produced an explosion of hilarity and a chorus of, “Should have taken your chances with the 2 degree temperature rise, mate.”

On Christmas eve when Christians were celebrating the Prince of Peace, the New York Times delivered forth a call for war. “There’s only one way to stop Iran,” declared Alan J. Kuperman, and that is “military air strikes against Iran’s nuclear facilities.” [There’s Only One Way to Stop Iran, December 23, 2009 ]

Kuperman is described as the “director of the Nuclear Proliferation Prevention Program at the University of Texas at Austin,” but his Christmas eve call to war relies on disinformation and contradiction, not on objective scholarly analysis.

FDA approves Crestor for people who have no health problem to correct

Selling drugs only to people who are sick is, by definition, a limited market. Expanding drug revenues requires reaching people who have nothing wrong with them and convincing them that taking a cocktail of daily pharmaceuticals will somehow keep them healthy.

All this is, of course, the greatest quackery we've yet seen from Big Pharma, because once this floodgate of "preventive pharmaceuticals" is unleashed, the drug companies will be positioned to promote a bewildering array of other preventive chemicals you're supposed to take at the same time. Did you take your anti-cancer pill today? How about your anti-diabetes pill? Anti-cholesterol pill? Don't forget your anti-Alzheimer's pill, too.

We all remember (with some bitterness) the glaring contrast between the Met Office’s rosy prediction of a “barbecue summer” and the chilly wash-out we actually experienced. This month, you may have noticed, they’ve screwed up yet again. A “mild winter” was what the Met Office promised us. But a “mild winter” (clue: notice how many fewer toes you have than you did in June) is what we definitely haven’t got. This has not, of course, prevented the Met Office coming up with one of its characteristic “even though we’re wrong we’re right” defences.

Bombshell Eyewitness Revelations: Confirmed FBI Cover-Up Of Flight 253 Attack

Detroit attorney Kurt Haskell dropped bombshell revelations concerning his eyewitness experience of the Flight 253 attack and how the FBI detained a second man after dogs detected a bomb in his luggage on The Alex Jones Show today. The FBI has not only ignored Haskell’s story, but they have launched a cover-up by refusing to even acknowledge the existence of another man who filmed the entire flight, including the aborted attack, as well as the well-dressed man who aided the bomber to board the plane even though he had no passport and was on a terror watch list.

Abdulmutallab’s Lawyer is Public Defender Who Forged Documents in Detroit Terror Cell Trial

You’d think that with an extremely wealthy family and a father who was the Chairman of the First Bank of Nigeria, Northwest Airlines Flight 253 Islamic terrorist Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab would have the best defense lawyer money can buy . . . and that he or his family would be paying for it.

But you’d be wrong. In fact, YOU–the American taxpayer–are paying for his defense. And his federal public defender, Miriam Siefer, has a record of sleaze and unethical behavior . . . some of it illegal.

BOMBSHELL: Evidence Clearly Indicates Staged Attack on Detroit Flight

Evidence is emerging that clearly indicates Abdulmutallab was more than just a Nigerian extremist carrying out his anger through an ill-conceived plot to ignite a powdery explosive substance on-board a flight to the United States. Eyewitness testimony pointing to a man helping the accused terrorist board without a passport, along with an unusual cameraman documenting the attempted attack on board the plane raise more than red flags– they point towards an intelligence operation, run as a drill, meant to conjure up public support for a number of fronts in the continuing ‘War on Terror.’

FLASHBACK - Hasbara spam alert

The hasbara brigade strikes again! You always hear about Israeli attempts at media manipulation. Everyone knows it's going on but usually the process happens through cyber insurgents like those involved with Giyus (and its media monitoring software, Megaphone). Now, we know that the Israeli foreign ministry itself is orchestrating propaganda efforts designed to flood news websites with pro-Israel arguments and information.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel tried to organize a flood of internet propaganda to cover their war crimes during Operation CAST LEAD.

It did not work because the blog-o-sphere is interactive and every single Israeli lie was met with ten posts containing the actual facts. Israel could not buy the blogs nor could they overwhelm them no matter how many volunteers (or paid PR shills) they had.

I relinked this because it appears Israel is about to restart their aggressions against Gaza and possibly Lebanon, and inevitably, we can expect Israel and the "Megaphonies" to once again treat the internet the way the USSR tried to treat radio waves.

He asked: “How do you justify that almost a million innocent civilians have died as the price of getting rid of a dictator? Who is accountable for this at the end of the day, after it was found that there were no weapons of mass destruction?”

Disturbing Questions In Thwarted US Plane Bombing

By Barry Grey

28 December, 2009

The nearly catastrophic attempt to blow up a US passenger jet during its final approach to Detroit Metro Airport on Christmas Day raises a number of serious questions.

While many details of the attempted terror attack and the biography of the would-be suicide bomber remain sketchy, widely-reported facts that have been corroborated by US officials make clear that the near-destruction of the airliner was the result of a colossal and as yet unexplained security failure.

Changing the Narrative for War

In spite of the calamities of the past eight years, there continues to be no shortage of neoconservatives in one's face in the media, advising their fellow Americans that wars can be won quickly and decisively and that using military force to change how other nations behave is sound policy. The Washington Post features Bill Kristol, Charles Krauthammer, all three Kagans, John Bolton, and Eliot Cohen on a regular basis. The Wall Street Journal editorial page is the epicenter for those who favor muscular interventionism. The New York Times, America's most influential newspaper, is somewhat more circumspect, featuring neocons-lite David Brooks and Thomas Friedman regularly, but also including the more measured foreign policy analysis of Frank Rich and Roger Cohen.

Biased reporting on Climategate

AP gave three scientists copies of the controversial e-mails and then asked them about their conclusions.

Dennis Hastert: A Portrait of a Political System Termite

Prior to his two-decade long career as a congressman, Hastert was a high school teacher in Chicago with a modest family income. Yet, somehow, he managed to become a multi-millionaire while in Congress: his financial net worth went from less than $270,000 in 1986 to an estimated $4 million to $17 million. No, this was not due to a rich wife or a sudden inheritance, nor was it due to winning a lottery. This fortune came about solely as a result of his activities as a Political System Termite. We will have more on this further down the article.

This PST, while hard at work with his comrade termites eroding and rotting the legislative foundation, while filling up his personal pockets with hard-earned taxpayers money and building a fortune, was involved in almost every major scandal involving the Capitol Hill PST Colony during the last decade: From the Jack Abramoff Scandal to the Mark Foley Disaster, from being pocketed by foreign government(s) to making millions in congressionally earmarked land deals.

With this understanding as a background, the Iraq War can be viewed as their "masterpiece."

The Bush family and its associates have stolen countless billions of dollars in the course of the war. In fact, one of their motivations for pushing the war in the first place was the opportunity for theft.

... In 1973, Bernard Bloomfield, president of the Jewish National Fund (JNF) of Canada, led a campaign to raise $15 million for a recreational park for Israelis. His vision was realized where Imwas and Yalo once stood:

“a proud tribute to Canada,” in his words, “and to the Canadian Jewish community whose vision and foresight helped transform a barren stretch of land into a major national recreational area for the people of Israel.”

The Lap Bomber Mystery

Whether Nigerian, or Indian, something is up here, and it seems to have little to do with al-Qaeda, which – breaking its past habit of promptly taking "credit" – has yet to claim responsibility for the attempted attack. More grounds for suspicion: allegations that the Detroit incident was planned and carried out by al-Qaeda in Yemen can be traced back to "IntelCenter," a mysterious private contractor with a dubious reputation [.pdf] (see frames 89-100) that does business with the intelligence community.

Corporate Media Claims Underwear Bomber Connected to al-Qaeda

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says there is no indication that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab is “part of anything larger” and there is no evidence he is associated with al-Qaeda, but this has not prevented the corporate media from claiming the foiled attack was hatched by the nefarious phantom terror group.

If history is any indication, it is only a matter of time before the administration connects the botched attack to the mythical terror group.

“Dr. Mutallab told US Embassy Umaru was planning something”- Family

Contrary to reports that Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab obtained his visa from a US consulate in Nigeria, can say that he obtained a multiple tourist visa to the United States in June of 2008, in London. Nevertheless, his father recently notified the United State Authorities that his son had become a Muslim religious extremist, who is highly radicalized and may be planning a terrorist attack. Consequently, he was placed on some sort of watch list, but in the words of a state department source, the information his father provided was not specific enough to warrant a revocation of his visa or put him on a no flight list.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In other words, Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab was in all probability recruited by CIA.

THE SUITED MAN: Unidentified man helped Mutallab board Amsterdam plane without passport

Passengers had to wait about 20 minutes before they were allowed to exit the plane. Haskell said he and other passengers waited about six hours to be interviewed by the FBI.

About an hour after landing, Haskell said he saw another man being taken into custody. But a spokeswoman from the FBI in Detroit said Mutallab was the only person taken into custody.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

During that 6 hours, the official story had ample time to become the media legend.

Millions were in germ war tests

The Ministry of Defence turned large parts of the country into a giant laboratory to conduct a series of secret germ warfare tests on the public.

A government report just released provides for the first time a comprehensive official history of Britain's biological weapons trials between 1940 and 1979.

Many of these tests involved releasing potentially dangerous chemicals and micro-organisms over vast swaths of the population without the public being told.

Did Northwest Atempted Bomber Mutallab Get On Plane Without Passport?

Haskell said he was sitting with his wife playing cards directly in front of the check in counter in Amsterdam, when an Indian man in a nicely dressed suit around age 50 approached the counter with who he believes to be Mutallab. He noted the two of them were an odd pair and the older Indian man said referring to Mutallab:
“This man needs to get on this flight and he has no passport.” The ticket agent said “you can’t board without a passport”. The Indian man then replied, “He is from Sudan, we do this all the time.” The ticket agent then said “You will have to talk to my manager”, and sent the two down a hallway. Haskell said, I never saw the Indian man again as he wasn’t on the flight.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"We do this all the time" implies the Indian man is part of an organization he assumes the ticketing agent is already aware of.

Arrest of Farouk Umar Abdul Mutallab Raises Serious Questions Over Delta Airline Incident in Detroit

There have been reports that he had spent time in the United Arab Emirates and Yemen and implying that this may indicate a connection with Al-Qaida. However, there has been no specific evidence that he has links with Islamic organizations including Al-Qaida.

Terror suspect was on UK, US watch list

The Nigerian terror suspect, who made a failed attempt to detonate a bomb on a plane on Christmas day, has been on UK and US terrorist watch lists.

Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab, who graduated from the renowned University College London in 2008 with an undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering, was placed on UK's watch list after he was denied a UK student visa earlier this year to attend an unauthenticated academic institution.

The 23-year-old's name was also placed last month on the US's central repository of information on international terrorists known as the Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment (Tide).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This guy has "patsy" written all over him.

Commenter says he was aboard NWA Flight 253, saw suspected terrorist board the plane

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(Although I think he is 23 he doesn't look it). 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.

Americans Are Hell-Bent on Tyranny

Americans Are Hell-Bent on Tyranny

By Paul Craig Roberts, December 22, 2009

Obama's dwindling band of true believers has taken heart that their man has finally delivered on one of his many promises--the closing of the Guantanamo prison. But the prison is not being closed. It is being moved to Illinois, if the Republicans permit.

In truth, Obama has handed his supporters another defeat. Closing Guantanamo meant ceasing to hold people in violation of our legal principles of habeas corpus and due process and ceasing to torture them in violation of US and international laws.

Uninvestigated terrorism warning about Detroit suspect called not unusual

When Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab's father in Nigeria reported concern over his son's "radicalization" to the U.S. Embassy there last month, intelligence officials in the United States deemed the information insufficient to pursue. The young man's name was added to the half-million entries in a computer database in McLean and largely forgotten.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But Cat Stevens and Ted Kennedy were kept off airplanes.

1 of two cases apply.

1. Abdulmutallab is planted fake to justify a new war in Yemen. Which would explain why ABCNNBBC are not reporting on the "sharply-dressed" man who got Abdulmutallab onto the plane without a passport.

2. Abdulmutallab proves that Homeland Security and TSA are totally impotent. The security systems we have do not work, and adding more will not make it any better as they are clearly drowning in the volume of false-positives they have and are unable to function.

Dec 28 07:21

Cui bono?

Just last week President Obama ordered a U.S. military strike on Yemen terrorists.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who set himself on fire on the Northwest flight Christmas day while the plane was on approach to Detroit airport, has lived to tell his story. Abdulmutallab claims that the attack originated with al-Qaeda's network in Yemen.

Cui bono from this admission?

Dec 28 07:20

A Tale of Two Terrorists?

The photos in the press of alleged terrorist Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab are so blurry, that his identity is somewhat obscured. I find this really odd. But, it is not just the poor quality of the photos, it is the fact that there appears to be two different looking alleged terrorists!

Webmaster's Commentary:

Newport couple witnesses to airliner attack

The Haskells were coming home from a safari vacation in Uganda and were on layover in Amsterdam on Christmas. While sitting on the floor waiting to board, Mr. Haskell said he noticed something unusual.

An Indian man who "looked wealthy and was dressed in a nice suit" approached the ticket counter with a young man.

"They looked like an odd couple because the Indian man was dressed so nice and the person, who I thought was a teen, was a scraggly dressed black guy," Mr. Haskell said. "... The Indian man said he needed to get (the Nigerian man) on the plane, but he had no passport."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Notice that there is no mention at all of the sharply-dressed man at all on ABCNNBBCBS.

Dec 27 13:47

The plot thins ...

The more I read about the latest plane terrorist, the more I know it's all fake.

Yesterday we were told the terrorist himself said the explosive was strapped to his leg, today we are told by the Telegraph, quoting nobody at all, that it was sewn into his underwear. Okay, maybe he was wearing long winter underwear.

The Telegraph, again quoting nobody at all, tells us the explosive was the same as Richard Reid used. Yet in all this time, authorities have not come up with a detection method for this type of explosive?

I can't wait to see what stories the other rags are coming out with.

Nigerian man was in terror database

A Nigerian man charged Saturday with attempting to blow up a U.S. airliner on Christmas Day was listed in a U.S. terrorism database after his father told State Department officials that he was worried about his son's radical beliefs and extremist connections, officials said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Man, they cannot even keep their stories straight.

First, he was allowed on board the plane despite being in the terror database.

Then the story changed to, "Well, he was mentioned in some US Intelligence reports but not on the terror list."

And now it is back to his being on the terror list after all.

So how did he get on the plane?

And who was the "sharply dressed" man who talked the security gate into letting him on board the plane without a passport? And more to the point, what position did this "sharply dressed" man hold that the airport gate personnel acceded to his wishes?

Dec 27 12:39

"No, really, he could have blown up the plane with just 80 grams of PETN in his shorts. Honest. Really. He could have! No kidding!!! Would we lie to you???"

EPIC FAIL: Terrorist Abdulmutallab Allowed on Flt 253 w/out Passport b/c of “Sharp-Dressed Man”

The more we learn about Islamic terrorist Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the more absurd the whole situation seems because it not only could have been prevented, but because every single U.S. agency and authority involved behaved with incompetence.

Passengers on Flight 253 say they watched a “sharp dressed man” (cue the ZZ Top song) convince authorities to let Abdul Mutallab on the flight WITHOUT a passport. You let a dude from a Muslim country and no luggage on a U.S.-bound plane with NO passport?! Hellooooo . . .?:

Witnesses saw the suspect use a syringe to add a liquid to another substance before flames erupted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is inconsistent with the claim that PETN (a dry powder) was the explosive.

And why didn't he do his thing with the syringe in the lavatory where he would not be disturbed?

U.S. plane attacker "sneaked" into Nigeria: government

A Nigerian man who tried to blow up a U.S. passenger jet had lived outside the West African nation for some time and only returned on the eve of the foiled attack, the Nigerian government said on Sunday.

So, our suspect goes back to Nigeria from London to board an airplane to Amsterdam, to grab a plane to Detroit?

Who is this loser's travel agent???????

"I pulled the object from him ... and threw it away."

"Suddenly, we hear a bang. It sounded like a firecracker went off. I saw smoke rising from a seat ... I didn’t hesitate. I just jumped," he told The New York Post.

"I pulled the object from him and tried to extinguish the fire with my hands and threw it away," he then told CNN.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What "Object?"
Where is it? What does it look like?
A PDA with a blown Lithium Ion battery by any chance?

Otherwise, this "object" would be showcased in all the corporate media as definitive proof of the crime! The absence of this object from the media is notable! It should be there, but itn't.

And how can our hero pull an "object" from our terrorist when the official story is of 80 grams of PETN sewn into his underwear?

As a side note, the explosives sensors used at the airports detect PETN remotely!

Dec 27 10:09

Terrorist Plane threat seems Hokey.

Passengers reported that Abdulmutallab was calm and lucid throughout. One flight attendant asked him what he had had in his pocket, and he replied “explosive device.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This just gets worse and worse.

This is just flat out beyond belief.

Why would he say he had an explosive device in his pocket and why didn't the flight attendant react at that point, rather than wait until the passengers had to put the fire out?

What if what he really said was "Electronic Device" when asked what was in his pocket. Both his answer and the flight attendant's non-reaction make perfect sense then.

Zeitgeist Addendum film review: past, present, and future of money and economics

*hyperlinks and video live at source*

Zeitgeist Addendum is the 2008 follow-up to the 2007 100 million Internet-viewed Zeitgeist. The film focuses on humanity’s fundamental problem of a viciously antagonistic relationship among ourselves and its reflection in economic structures. The solution presented is to understand three areas of money and economics, and one area of philosophical creative potential:

1.The mechanics of our fractional reserve monetary system that only and always creates debt that is impossible to ever repay.
2.Our corporatocracy governments that enslave nations under unpayable debt to control resources and profit.
3.The option of upgrading our economy from a scarcity and profit-based paradigm to a resource and technology-driven paradigm.

White House: Failed Airline Bombing Was Attempted Act of Terrorism

One law enforcement official, speaking on condition of anonymity in order to discuss the case, said Mudallad's name had surfaced earlier on at least one U.S. intelligence database, but not to the extent that he was placed on a watch list or a no-fly list.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


Cat Stevens and Ted Kennedy wound up on the watch list. Little babies with names like known suspects are on the no-fly list.

Now they are saying that despite Mudallad being in US Intelligence files, and despite a warning by his father some weeks ago, he was allowed onto the plane in Amsterdam?


At the very least, if we give the government the benefit of the doubt and assume they are telling the truth (an historic event if true), then the entire no-fly list is useless and a total waste of time and money.

Personally, I still lean towards the exploding battery theory followed by a "how can we use this to bullshit the public into another war" reaction by the government.

But of one thing we can be absolutely certain. Whatever the official story is as a total lie and can be ignored if not laughed at.

Northwest Bomb Plot 'Oddities'

Got it? Write a book critical of the CIA -- you cannot fly. Carry explosives (allegedly from Yemen) on board when the US is trolling for an excuse to invade and occupy Yemen for its oil -- yes you can! The US needs false flags to provide cover for illegal invasions and occupations. The 9/11 terrorist attacks (aka inside job, six ways to Sunday) worked well for the US government; the security-industrial complex made billions and US corporaterrorists were able to negotiate the wholesale theft of Iraq's oil.

Confirmed? "Sharp dressed man" aided Northwest flight "Christmas Bomber" Umar Mutallab onto plane without passport. Who was involved, why don't we know about this other suspect?

Haskell said he and his wife were sitting on the ground near their boarding gate in Amsterdam, which is when they saw Mutallab approach the gate with an unidentified man.

While Mutallab was poorly dressed, his friend was dressed in an expensive suit, Haskell said. He says the suited man asked ticket agents whether Mutallab could board without a passport. “The guy said, 'He's from Sudan and we do this all the time.'”

Mutallab is Nigerian. Haskell believes the man may have been trying to garner sympathy for Mutallab's lack of documents by portraying him as a Sudanese refugee.

Terrorist Airliner Explosion: Maybe Just a Battery?

Could it be possible that the government and media are jumping to an embarrassing conclusion, along with potential racial profiling here? I am an electrical engineer by profession for over 30 years, and the description of the explosion sounds just like a faulty battery on a personal electronic device (PED). If the plane was just starting it's descent, it could be he was stowing his device at the time of the explosion (turning it on/off, cabin pressure fluctuations, etc.), a more likely time for the battery to explode if it were faulty. These PED battery explosions are typically "small" and limited in area, consistent with the reported events.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I guess I am not the only person thinking along these lines.

Dec 26 17:05

ABC - Officials say bomb materials sewn into suspect's underwear by top bomb maker.

The device intended to blow up the Northwest flight was made at the location in Yemen, according to Abdulmutallab, and consisted of a six-inch packet of powder and a syringe with a liquid. Both were sewn into the student's underwear so they would be near his testicles and unlikely to be detected, he told agents.

Webmaster's Commentary: 
80 Grams of PETN is roughly the equivalent of ten blasting caps, or 4 Hollywood type blood pack squibs. Yes, if 80 grams of PETN were sewn into the crotch of our "terrorist's" underwear and detonated, it would blow his balls off, but with the shock wave absorbed by his legs, not much more than that. I think this underwear story is being put out to explain how our "terrorist" got past the full body scanners at the Amsterdam airport; by claiming the bomb was concealed behind the man's testicles. But as an explosive, 80 grams of PETN is insufficient to bring down an airplane from the crotch of a traveler's pants! This is simply not a credible story.

Bomb Suspect May Be Prominent Banker's Son

A prominent Nigerian banker says he's meeting with security officials because he fears his son may have been the man who allegedly tried to bomb a U.S.-bound flight.

Former bank official Alhaji Umaru Mutallab says he traveled from his home in the Nigeria's Muslim-dominated north to meet officials in Abuja, the capital. According to multiple media reports in Nigeria, Mutallab is the former chairman of the First Bank of Nigeria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This kid just does not fit the profile of a genuine fanatical terrorist.

He comes from money, university student, bright future.

And does it make any sense that s supposed terrorist would choose to board a plane at the most Israeli-linked airport in Europe, where both ICTS and Shin Bet have control, where total body scanners are in use that should in theory detect his bomb?

In short, this kid walks right past the scanners, past ICTS, past Shin Bet, gets on a plane, has his bomb fizzle, and announces he works for Al Qaeda.

No Hollywood writer could come up with a plot line that stupid.

FLASHBACK - Jetliner Crash Reveals Israel’s Weapons Plan

An estimated 3,000 Dutch residents suffer health problems as a result of the chemical and radioactive poisoning that occurred when El Al 1862 crashed. Today there is growing awareness in Holland of Israel’s privileged and unregulated use of Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport to transport dangerous military cargo, a practice that clearly puts the health of the Dutch people at risk.

“El Al has its own security force at Schiphol,” Heijboer told AFP. “But they don’t work for El Al—they are all from Shin Bet (Israeli secret service) and are paid by the Israeli embassy. The Israelis run the airport like a little Haifa.”

Webmaster's Commentary:

Expert: Beef up airport security

Douglas Laird, former security director for Northwest Airlines, said he has been advocating for years that airports switch from X-rays and metal detectors to full-body scans -- a move that would cost hundreds of millions of dollars more, but one that he insists would help prevent terrorist attempts like the one reported Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the article does not mention is that Douglas Laird's CURRENT occupation is SELLING SECURITY SYSTEMS!

The fact is that after every one of these incidents, the people who make millions of dollars selling security systems call for more security. Then there will be another incident proving that the millions of dollars already spent were totally wasted on ineffective systems.

It is time to admit that security is not secure, and the only path to a terror-free world is to STOP SCREWING AROUND WITH OTHER PEOPLES' COUNTRIES!

Mining the soil: Biomass, the unsustainable energy source

The promotional material from Big Green Energy, aka Biomass Gas & Electric, presents biomass as “clean, renewable energy”, sustainable and green. The US Department of Energy uses the terms “clean and renewable” when introducing visitors at its website to the topic.

But is it accurate to describe the repeated removal of biomass from agricultural or forested lands as sustainable?

FLASHBACK - Amsterdam airport's new 'X-ray' security scan reveals all

Amsterdam's Schiphol airport Tuesday introduced a new security scan that sees through clothes, the first airport in the world to use the system, officials said.

The scan outlines body contours, making it easy for security personnel to see if anyone is carrying weapons or smuggling money or drugs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So ... how did our "terror" suspect (who was already on the no-fly list and should have been barred form the plane) get past this "naked" scanner with his "looks kinda like smuggled drugs" powder?

American Zionist fear monger David Harris campaigns for Iran’s destruction

Paul J. Balles views one of the fear-producing packages of a major Zionist voice in America, David Harris, Director of the American Jewish Committee, who advocates destroying Iran economically, politically and militarily for the nuclear weapons it doesn't have, while overlooking Israel's vast arsenal of nuclear bombs.

”...Harris tries to drum up global fear of Iran, a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, while Harris knows full well that Israel has over 200 nuclear warheads and Iran has none.

“Harris ignores the fact that Israel has been in attack-mode since its beginnings – ethnic cleansing of Palestinians, invasion and sponsorship of Sabre and Shatilla murders in Lebanon's refugee camps, slaughter in Gaza, military theft of the Golan Heights from Syria.

AP Sources: Al-Qaida Link In Failed Plane Attack

The official added that additional security measures are being taken without raising the airline threat level.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

On the off chance that today's Booga Booga isn't a hoax, what it proves is that Homeland Security and TSA are a total waste of time (and broken laptops) that waste time and money and are otherwise totally useless when it comes to protecting us against terror attacks.

Want to end terror?

Hillary’s Bush Connection

IN THE CLINTONS’ PURSUIT OF POWER, there is no such thing as a strange bedfellow. One recently exposed inamorata was Norman Hsu, the mysterious businessman from Hong Kong who brought in $850,000 to Hillary Clinton’s campaign before being unmasked as a fugitive. Her campaign dismissed Hsu as someone who’d slipped through the cracks of an otherwise unimpeachable system for vetting donors, and perhaps he was. The same cannot be said for the notorious financier Alan Quasha, whose involvement with Clinton is at least as substantial?–?and still under wraps.

Political junkies will recall Quasha as the controversial figure who bailed out George W. Bush’s failing oil company in 1986, folding Bush into his company, Harken Energy, thus setting him on the path to a lucrative and high-profile position as an owner of the Texas Rangers baseball team, and the presidency. The persistently unprofitable Harken?–?many of whose board members, connected to powerful foreign interests and the intelligence community, nevertheless profited enormously?–?faced intense scrutiny in the early 1990s and again during Bush’s first term.

It was a white Christmas, just, but don’t bet on it in the future

But the effects of global warming could make gambling on a white Christmas an even worse bet. Official predictions suggest that the chances of widespread Christmas snowfall will fall 65 per cent by 2050.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Officials: Possible terror attack on Northwest jet

A 23-year-old Nigerian man tried to light a powdery substance aboard a Northwest Airlines flight before landing in Detroit on Friday, a senior U.S. counterterrorism official told NBC News.

Two people noticed the attempt and a third person jumped on the man and subdued him, an airline official told NBC News.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, one of two cases applies.

1. This is yet another in a long line of staged phony "terror" attempts to scare us all into going along with the war agenda.

2. This was a real terror attack, thwarted by passengers, proving that all the TSA screening is totally worthless and Homeland Security couldn't protect their own balls, let along anyone or anything else.

Take your pick.
