UM Coach: Bomb Sniffing Dogs, Spotters on Roofs Before Explosions

University of Mobile’s Cross Country Coach, who was near the finish line of the Boston Marathon when a series of explosions went off, said he thought it was odd there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines.
"They kept making announcements to the participants do not worry, it’s just a training exercise," Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15.
Stevenson said he saw law enforcement spotters on the roofs at the start of the race. He’s been in plenty of marathons in Chicago, D.C., Chicago, London and other major metropolitan areas but has never seen that level of security before.
"Evidently, I don’t believe they were just having a training exercise," Stevenson said. "I think they must have had some sort of threat or suspicion called in."
Stevenson had just finished the marathon before the explosions. Stevenson said his wife had been sitting in one of the seating sections where an explosion went off, but thankfully she left her seat and was walking to meet up with him.
"We are just so thankful right now," Stevenson said.

Eyewitness: Authorities Announced “Drill” Before Boston Explosions

UM coach “thought it was odd” bomb sniffing dogs were at start and finish lines

An eyewitness to the two explosions at the Boston Marathon today said that a “drill” was repeatedly announced before the bombs exploded and that he “thought it was odd” bomb sniffing dogs were in place before the blast.

Capture 9

 

University of Mobile’s Cross Country Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15 News, “They kept making announcements on the loud speaker that it was just a drill and there was nothing to worry about. “It seemed like there was some sort of threat, but they kept telling us it was just a drill.”

The news station also reports that Stevenson “thought it was odd there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines.”

Stevenson then describes hearing the explosions as he ran away from the scene, having just completed the marathon.

If this report is accurate, it clearly suggests there could have been some degree of prior knowledge of the bombing, which killed two people and injured at least 23.

The fact that the explosions were preceded and overlapped by a”drill” of an almost identical nature mirrors other major terror attacks, such as the 7/7 bombings in London.

It is important to emphasize that the New York Times recently reported that most of the recent domestic terror plots in the United States “were facilitated by the F.B.I.,” suggesting that today’s incident in Boston may have been part of such an operation.

It remains to be seen how the media and the Obama administration will exploit this incident depending who gets the blame, but Rahm Emanuel’s “never let a serious crisis go to waste” advisory is sure to be in play.

Establishment Media Exploits Boston Marathon Terror to Demonize Alex Jones

Engages in historical amnesia to divert attention away from likely culprits

Infowars.com
April 15, 2013

In the hours following the deadly terrorist bombing in Boston this afternoon, the corporate media launched into an effort to characterize the reporting of Alex Jones and Infowars.com as crazy conspiracy theories.

After Alex reported the event has all the hallmarks of a false flag event, Mediaite said the “accusation suggests that Jones believes the government, or some other powerful entity, is behind the explosions and intends to utilize this event to justify a political agenda…. In case you thought he was kidding, Jones repeated his assertion by claiming that the FBI is behind ‘virtually every domestic terror plot.’”

Former MSNBC anchor Dan Abrams’ Mediaite would have us believe Jones’ assertion is crazy fantasy or an outright lie meant to deceive. However, last April none other than the New York Timesreported that the FBI has hatched most domestic terror plots in the United States in the wake of September 11, 2001. A report by Mother Jones and the Investigative Reporting Program at the University of California-Berkley released in 2011 revealed that it is common practice for the FBI to create terror plots from scratch and entrap witless and even mentally ill patsies. Mediaite, naturally, neglected to mention this when pillaring Jones.

Glenn Beck’s The Blaze joined in on the feeding frenzy and attempted to discount the probability that the terrorist attack was contrived by the government as a false flag. Jason Howerton, writing for Beck, said Jones “doesn’t have legitimate evidence to back up his claim” despite an ample history of government involvement in terrorist attacks – from Nero’s torching of Rome to the Reichstag fire and phantom communists firing on U.S. ships in the Gulf of Tonkin. Howerton and Beck, of course, ignore the fact the at the highest level of the Pentagon there was a plan to stage terror attacks on American soil as a pretext to invade Cuba.

“While most observers are withholding judgment about what caused the two explosions at the Boston Marathon this afternoon, right-wing conspiracy theorists already know what’s going on – the government did it and is going to pin the blame on them because today is Patriots’ Day, a special day in the militia movement,” writes Alex Seitz-Wald for Salon.

Is it possible Mr. Seitz-Wald is unfamiliar with a recent letter sent by the Southern Poverty Law Center to Eric Holder and Janet Napolitano warning that Alex Jones and other supposed wild-eyed terrorists and racist Obama-haters may soon initiate another Oklahoma City Bombing? Talk about crazy conspiracy theories.

Finally, the establishment bellwether, Foreign Policy, could not resist the temptation to discourage investigating possibilities outside the official narrative now in the formative stage.

“It literally took only minutes for the conspiracy theories to start after news broke about the twin explosions in Boston. Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who has yet to find a tragedy he couldn’t exploit, wasted no time,” writes J. Dana Stuster, linking to Alex’s Twitter page. “Jones’s faux-news site, Info Wars, has already posted a story about how the blasts coincided with an FBI training exercise.”

As for the dissemination of fake news, the establishment dinosaurs now slouching toward rigor mortis long ago claimed that trophy following the CIA’s Operation Mockingbird after Frank Wisner converted a formerly free press into a Mighty Wurlitzer of globalist propaganda.

FBI’s History of Handing “Terror Suspects” Live Explosives

Tony Cartalucci

April 15, 2013

In late September 2011, AFP reported that a man was charged with “planning to fly explosive-packed, remote controlled airplanes into the Pentagon and the Capitol in Washington.” In its report, “US man charged with Pentagon bomb plot,” AFP stated (emphasis added):

During the alleged plot, undercover FBI agents posed as accomplices who supplied Ferdaus with one remote-controlled plane, C4 explosives, and small arms that he allegedly envisioned using in a simultaneous ground assault in Washington.

However, ”the public was never in danger from the explosive devices, which were controlled by undercover FBI employees,” the FBI said.

Ferdaus was arrested in Framingham, near Boston, immediately after putting the newly delivered weapons into a storage container, the FBI said.

Authorities described Ferdaus as a physics graduate from Northeastern University who followed al-Qaeda and was committed to ”violent jihad” since early last year.

In November 2010, a similar “plot” was engineered, then “disrupted,” also by the FBI – this time in Portland, Oregon. The so-called “Christmas Tree Bomber” attempted to remote detonate a van he believed was filled with explosives, provided by the FBI, before being arrested during a Christmas tree lighting ceremony at Pioneer Courthouse Square. The FBI’s official statement regarding the incident revealed that FBI agents had handled, even detonated live explosives with the entrapped suspect at Lincoln County Park in the lead up to the final failed bombing.

The FBI’s official statement titled, “Oregon Resident Arrested in Plot to Bomb Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in Portland,” released by the U.S. Attorney’s Office on November 26, 2010 stated (emphasis added):

According to the affidavit, on November 4, 2010, Mohamud and the undercover FBI operatives traveled to a remote location in Lincoln County, Ore., where they detonated a bomb concealed in a backpack as a trial run for the upcoming attack.Afterwards, on the drive back to Corvallis, undercover FBI operatives questioned Mohamud as to whether he was capable of looking at the bodies of those who would be killed in the upcoming attack in Portland. According to the affidavit, Mohamud responded, “I want whoever is attending that event to leave, to leave either dead or injured.”

Upon returning to Corvallis that same day, the affidavit alleges that Mohamud recorded a video of himself with the undercover FBI operatives in which he read a written statement that offered a rationale for his bomb attack. On Nov. 18, 2010, undercover FBI operatives picked up Mohamud to travel to Portland in order to finalize the details of the attack.

Earlier this evening, Mohamud was arrested after he attempted to remotely detonate what he believed to be explosives in a van that was parked near the Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland, the affidavit alleges.

Yet another similar operation was carried out by the FBI in February 2012, where yet another otherwise incapable patsy was  provided with live explosives in the lead up to what was ultimately a failed suicide bombing at the US Capitol. USA Today reported in their article, “FBI foils alleged suicide bomb attack on U.S. Capitol,” that (emphasis added):

According to a counterterrorism official, El Khalifi “expressed interest in killing at least 30 people and considered targeting a building in Alexandria and a restaurant, synagogue and a place where military personnel gather in Washington before he settled on the Capitol after canvassing that area a couple of times,” the Associated Press writes. During the year-long investigation, El Khalifi detonated explosives at a quarry in the capital region with undercover operatives. He is not believed to be affiliated with al-Qaeda, officials said.

The frightening trend of the FBI cultivating otherwise incapable “terror” suspects, providing them with and detonating real explosives, before giving them inert or controlled devices to carry out attacks on public targets where mass casualties are averted only at the last possible moment, sets the stage for at the very least, incredible potential for catastrophic blunders, and at worst, false flag attacks.

Has the FBI ever presided over “sting operations” that were actually carried out? The answer is yes. The FBI in fact was presiding over the terrorists who carried out the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. The role of the FBI leading up to the deadly attack would most likely have gone unreported had an FBI informant not taped his conversations with FBI agents after growing suspicious during the uncover operation. The New York Times in their article, “Tapes Depict Proposal to Thwart Bomb Used in Trade Center Blast,” reported:

Law-enforcement officials were told that terrorists were building a bomb that was eventually used to blow up the World Trade Center, and they planned to thwart the plotters by secretly substituting harmless powder for the explosives, an informer said after the blast.

The informer was to have helped the plotters build the bomb and supply the fake powder, but the plan was called off by an F.B.I. supervisor who had other ideas about how the informer, Emad A. Salem, should be used, the informer said.

The account, which is given in the transcript of hundreds of hours of tape recordings Mr. Salem secretly made of his talks with law-enforcement agents, portrays the authorities as in a far better position than previously known to foil the Feb. 26 bombing of New York City’s tallest towers. The explosion left six people dead, more than 1,000 injured and damages in excess of half a billion dollars.

What takes shape is an FBI at the center of perpetuating America’s terror menace, not at the forefront of fighting it. With every attack foiled or carried out involving FBI uncover operatives revealed only after successful “stings” or in the case of the World Trade Center bombings, an inconvenient witness stepping forward and revealing the FBI’s role, the first and foremost suspect considered after any bombing on US soil should be the FBI itself.

Recent explosions at the Boston Marathon have left two dead and many more injured. While the public waits to find out who will be blamed, and the role, if any the FBI played in the lead up to the explosions, it would be best to keep in mind the insidious and/or incompetent role the FBI has played during similar events, some of which have occurred recently and in close proximity to the latest explosions.

Already some across the Western media are attempting to draw parallels to the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York and Washington – despite the fact that the US is now deliberately funding and arming Al Qaeda in Syria, as well as openly supporting previously listed terrorist organization,Mujahedeen e-Khalq (MEK), in Iran. Vigilance must be kept against Western governments eager to both exploit and perpetuate  terrorism and tragedy as well as manufacture it when necessary.

 

All Terror Attacks are Psyops

Jon Rappoport
Infowars.com
April 16, 2013

Whether the Boston Marathon murders were staged as a false flag, and if so, by whom, there are certainly contradictions in the media story line so far.

Mike Adams, at natural news, has pointed out several key absurdities in the official scenario, including the apparent controlled demolition of a bomb at the JFK library, a mile away from the explosions at the Marathon finish line.

This demolition, unreported by the press, was mentioned just before it took place, by a Boston Globe tweet: “There will be a controlled explosion opposite the library within one minute as part of bomb squad activities.”

The demolition would have taken place about an hour after the two explosions at the Marathon finish line, which means the bomb squad was able to find the Library device, rig it for demolition, and blow it up in record time.

Whatever the cause of the fire/explosion in the Library, that “incendiary device” was spent, and the bomb squad found another unexploded bomb on the premises.

A local Boston TV reporter, Eileen Curran, took a photo of the Library. The exterior of the building, at the employee’s entrance, shows blackened walls. If the “electrical fire” or the “incendiary device” caused this damage, the room in the Library where the fire or explosion took place must have been just inside the building. No media sources are specifically reporting that, which seems quite odd.

The press is merely stating there was a fire in a room in the Library. The fact that the fire was quite close to an entrance certainly rates a mention. It adds juicy media drama to the report. But there is no coverage of the fact.

All terror attacks, no matter who launches them, have a psychology. They have a purpose. Inducing fear, of course. Causing the public to give in to a new set of “security regulations,” which tighten the screws on freedom, of course. Painting some designated group as heinous, of course.

The third Monday in April, is Patriot’s Day. It commemorates the April 19, 1775, opening battles in the Revolutionary War against England, at Lexington and Concord. Previously celebrated on April 19th, it is also the anniversary of the Oklahoma City Bombing (1995), and the final FBI attack on the Waco, Texas, Branch Davidian compound that killed 76 men, women, and children (1993). April 15 is also tax day.

So some media commentators are already opining that “anti-tax-pro-patriot-anti-government” persons are behind the Boston murders.

At an elite level, where psyop research is conducted, the psychology of terror attacks involves disrupting the normal perception of reality.

Most people live their days in a more or less steady state of mind. They perform routine tasks over and over. They see their daily environment as quite familiar. All this produces what could be called a light trance.

If that seems improbable, notice what happens when something completely unexpected intrudes on habitual perception and experience. Shock is what happens.

It’s as if the person had been sleeping and suddenly and forcibly wakes up.

On a quiet residential street, a car plows into a lamp post. On a peaceful boulevard, a gust of wind blows a sign from its hinges into a store window, smashing it.

People are shocked. They look up. “Wow. Where was I?” Yes, it’s like waking from a dream.

Multiply that effect by a thousand. Bombs go off. The sounds of the explosions, the shock waves, people falling, people bleeding, grotesque injuries, death. In the space of a few seconds, and on a street where nothing ever happens.

And one layer removed from this, the world watches it unfold on television.

It’s a rip in the fabric of perceived reality. Right now.

Retired psyop planner, Ellis Medavoy (pseudonym), told me in a 2002 interview: “People think it’s very esoteric to talk about disruption in the space-time wave. But setting up certain psyops is very much about that. The theory of these operations has everything to do with the fact that people exist in an average and consistent space-time wave.

“They become used to that. They’re not even aware of it. So a psyop can go two ways. It can encourage that form of sleep, to make it continue. Or it can blow people right out of their wave into something that’s very disorienting.

“In the latter case, you’re forcing people out of their average perception of space and time, but you’re not giving them anything to replace it. They’re hanging in a void, so to speak.

“What’s the result? People desperately want a resolution of the psyop, so they can return to their former continuum. And because they feel desperate, they’ll take whatever and whoever you give them. You can say a deer chewed on a power cable and blew out the power for the entire east coast for a week, and they’ll believe you.

“And that’s what you want. The ability to say anything and have people believe you.”

I asked Medavoy if this included peppering the public with contradictions in the official account of a terrorist attack.

“Of course,” he said. “They’ll overlook those contradictions. They won’t pay any attention to them. They’re so panicked, they just want a resolution. You can plug in anybody as the guilty party, and they’ll buy it.”

Later in the conversation, I went back to the subject of the “space-time wave.”

Medavoy said: “The psychology on this is clear. An overwhelming percentage of people deal with space-time in a passive way. They receive it, so to speak. They are presented with that fundament of reality and they blindly accept it. Therefore, when you take it away, they’re lost. A tiny percentage of the population, those who are intensely creative, react differently. That’s because they are, in a real sense, projecting their own space and time.”

Psyops planners who stage events are aware of these factors. They want to create a world, a picture of a world, that is in dangerous flux and absolutely requires our “leaders” to stop that flux.

One of my more vivid experiences of this came in the mid-1980s. I was interviewing a relative of a soldier who died in Vietnam. When the subject of whether the war was justified came up, he flew off the handle. He went into a towering rage.

The fact that his cousin had been killed there automatically made the war a necessary policy of the government, a correct action. That conclusion stopped the unbearable flux for him. Otherwise, he was lost.

It was, of course, that way on 9/11, too, and in many other such instances.

There is a psychology operating here, and it isn’t merely some academic brand of nonsense. It cuts to the heart of how people literally exist in reality, and how it affects their deep response to events managed by professionals, who understand that psychology.

Boston Marathon bombs: al-Qaeda’s Inspire magazine taught pressure cooker bomb-making techniques

A recipe for how to make pressure cooker bombs, which investigators say were used in the Boston Marathon attack, was most notoriously published in the al-Qaeda magazine Inspire.

Boston marathon bombs: live
Three dead, dozens injured as ‘bombs’ hit Boston marathon
Who was behind the Boston bombs?
Boston marathon bomb pictures
Boston marathon bomb video

The recipe – along with a rationale for post-9/11 terror – was printed three years ago in al-Qaeda’s English-language promotional online magazine, Inspire.

In an article, it instructed readers on how, as its headline writers put it, to “Make a bomb in the kitchen of your Mom”.

It gave the types of explosive, timers and other ingredients needed – along with, it said, a pressure cooker.

That article was from the first edition of the magazine. Written in perfect but slightly hysterical English, some thought it was a hoax or satire along the lines of the film “Four Lions”.

In fact, most analysts remain convinced it was the brainchild of Anwar al-Awlaki, the Yemeni-American propagandist for Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, and was edited by Samir Khan, another American citizen who had travelled to Yemen to join the group.

It was clear in its market – the disaffected young men in their mid-twenties, whether converts or of Muslim origin, who studies show are by far and away the biggest source of recruits to the jihadist cause.

Subsequent editions suggested even more random forms of violence that anyone could carry out, such as driving a car into crowds as a weapon. The aim was to cause maximum response with a minimum of fuss.

Its methodology was in some ways a sign of weakness, an acknowledgement that well-planned, large scale attacks on the scale of 9/11, or for that matter the Oklahoma outrage by a white supremacist, were unlikely to be repeated because of increased security and the erosion of al-Qaeda’s command structure by drone strikes.

Other “spectaculars” had failed, such as the attempt to down an airliner over Detroit on Christmas Day 2009 by the so-called “underpants bomber”, an Awlaki recruit of Nigerian origin, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab.

By contrast, smaller scale random attacks had notable success: most strikingly, before Inspire’s first edition but clearly an incident its authors had in mind, Nidal Malik Hasan, the US army major who shot 13 people dead at his base at Fort Hood, Texas, had been in direct contact with Awlaki.

As new editions appeared, investigators took Inspire ever more seriously.

A disaffected US army private, Naser Jason Abdo, jailed for life in August 2012 after being found in possession of a bomb with which he said he was going to blow up a restaurant popular with soldiers from Fort Hood in an act of solidarity with Hasan, had a copy of the Inspire article.

In his hotel room were all the ingredients listed, including two pressure cookers.

Last October, Quasi Muhammad Nafis, accused of attempting to bomb a Federal Reserve Bank building in New York, was said by prosecutors to have read Inspire and even to have written an article in the hope that the magazine would publish it.

He, though, was trapped by an FBI sting operation. His car bomb was a fake given him by an undercover operative.

Awalaki and Khan were both killed in an American drone strike in Yemen in September 2011. The magazine has continued to publish, however, and while the pressure cookers do not prove Islamist terrorists were involved in the Boston attack, that is only part of the story.

For all its semi-comic tone, the magazine’s strategy of balancing relatively small-scale bombing with dramatic symbolism for political effect is an important chapter in the modern terror playbook. And its recipes are available for anyone.

It was, of course, that way on 9/11, too, and in many other such instances.

There is a psychology operating here, and it isn’t merely some academic brand of nonsense. It cuts to the heart of how people literally exist in reality, and how it affects their deep response to events managed by professionals, who understand that psychology.

Boston Marathon explosions: bomber filled pressure cookers with nails

The Boston marathon bombs were made from pressure cookers packed with nails, investigators disclosed, as President Barack Obama admitted that it was not known whether they were planted by a foreign or domestic terrorist.

The six-litre pressure cookers contained nails, ball bearings, other shrapnel and gunpowder and were placed on the ground inside black duffel bags near the finish line.

Such devices have been used in attacks in Afghanistan, Pakistan, India and Nepal, and one was also deployed in the failed Times Square bombing in May 2010.

The Pakistani Taliban, which claimed responsibility for the New York attack, denied any role in the Boston bombs.

According to a Department of Homeland Security document from 2004, pressure cookers were “a technique commonly taught in Afghan training camps”.

A domestic terrorist could also have worked out how to make them using the internet. An article in Inspire, al-Qaeda’s English-language online magazine, in 2010 instructed readers on how to “Make a bomb in the kitchen of your Mom”, which employed a pressure cooker.

Bill Daly, a former FBI investigator, said: “I don’t think the use of pressure cookers points to any particular group or individual.”

On Tuesday a solemn President Obama prepared America for a potentially long wait to find those responsible.

“What we don’t yet know is who carried out this attack or why, whether it was planned and executed by a terrorist organisation, foreign or domestic, or was the act of a malevolent individual. We will find whoever harmed our citizens and we will bring them to justice,” he said.

There was no claim of responsibility. Richard DesLauriers, head of the Boston FBI office, said: “This will be a worldwide investigation. We will go to the ends of the earth to find the subject or subjects responsible for this despicable crime.”

For the next two days police will search the 12-block crime scene for explosives residue, the remnants of a detonator and wires that could help them reconstruct the devices. The FBI and CIA are trawling databases for dangerous individuals with a link to Boston, and listening centres are searching for “chatter” about the attack among Middle East terrorist groups.

The National Security Agency is examining calls through mobile phone towers near Copley Square in the city centre, especially those to abroad. They are also looking for calls made at the moment of the explosions in case the devices were detonated by phone.

A third strand of the investigation involves an appeal for photographs and videos to create a visual timeline of the scene.

Two explosives sweeps were carried out near the finish line, one early in the morning and the other an hour before the first runner finished, meaning the bomber had a three-hour window to plant the devices.

Early analysis suggested the devices were crude with no high-grade explosives. The clouds of smoke and lack of structural damage to buildings also indicate simple devices. Doctors said the nails appeared to have had the heads removed. Some victims had more than 30 pieces of shrapnel in their bodies.

FBI agents on Tuesday visited the home of a 20-year-old student from Saudi Arabia. He had been injured and was questioned in hospital but not arrested.

 

Terror in Boston: Hagel Says Pentagon Ready to Violate Posse Comitatus

April 16, 2013

During testimony on Capitol Hill, Chuck Hagel characterized the attack in Boston as terrorism and said the Pentagon is prepared to respond quickly to any request from domestic law enforcement, according to Pentagon’s propaganda newspaper, Stars and Stripes.

“(The attack) is clearly an act of terror and will be approached as an act of terror,” Hagel said.

“I will continue to consult closely with DOD senior leaders and my counterparts in other agencies,” Hagel added, “on how we can best support the government’s response and investigations.”

The event in Boston has provided the Department of Defense with a handy excuse to reverse the disestablishment of two National Guard civil support teams, including one currently responding to the bombing in Boston.

Over 400 Massachusetts National Guardsmen “remain on duty to continue to assist local authorities,” the newspaper reported, citing a press release from the Guard.

The 211th Military Police Battalion was deployed to provide security, the Massachusetts National Guard’s 387th Ordnance Company (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) has been activated, the 267th Combat Communications Squadron was sent to Boston, and the Navy sent a bomb-disposal unit “to assist local authorities as needed in the aftermath of the explosions.” In addition, the U.S. Northern Command on Monday decided not to change security levels at military installations in the U.S.

Under the Posse Comitatus Act passed on June 18, 1878, after the end of Reconstruction, the military is prohibited from involvement in such activity as the supply of support, training, intelligence and equipment to civilian law enforcement. Because the federalized National Guard is part of either the Air Force or the Army, it is covered by the Act, according to Seattle attorneyLynne Wilson.

 

Obama Adversaries to be Blamed For Boston Attack?

Democratic operatives urged President to exploit terror

Paul Joseph Watson

April 16, 2013

Rahm Emanuel’s call to “never let a serious crisis go to waste” is really going to come to the fore this week if yesterday’s Boston Marathon attack is blamed on Barack Obama’s political opposition, with Democratic operatives having previously urged the President to exploit terror in order to reinvigorate his presidency.

Twitter Capture

Suggestions that the bombing could have been the work of Tea Partiers or anti-tax protesters have swirled despite the fact that the only suspect being questioned in response to the attack is a Saudi national.

Numerous establishment media outlets have also savaged Alex Jones for suggesting that the federal government could have been complicit in the bombing. Jones’ logic is based on a fact that the New York Times reported on last year, that many of the recent domestic terror plots in the United States “were facilitated by the F.B.I.,” a history that goes back until at least 1993 when the FBI gave terrorists real explosives with which to conduct the first WTC bombing.

Indeed, under the auspices of Operation Gladio, the idea of governments carrying out acts of terror and blaming them on political adversaries to alter the political climate was far from a “conspiracy theory,” it was an admitted fact.

Operation Gladio was a NATO cold war “stay behind” project designed to demonize political opposition and “force the public to turn to the state to ask for greater security,” according to the testimony of former Gladio agent Vincenzo Vinciguerra. In 2000, an Italian parliamentary investigation found that the 1980 Bologna train bombing, which killed 85 people, was carried out by “men inside Italian state institutions and … men linked to the structures of United States intelligence.”

“You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game,” Vinciguerra explained in sworn testimony.

“The reason was quite simple. They were supposed to force these people, the Italian public, to turn to the state to ask for greater security. This is the political logic that lies behind all the massacres and the bombings which remain unpunished, because the state cannot convict itself or declare itself responsible for what happened,” he added.

Given the fact that Barack Obama’s political career was launched in the living room of infamous domestic terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, the notion that his administration would use terror to further their agenda is hardly a far fetched idea.

Early evidence also clearly suggests that authorities had prior knowledge of the bombings and were running drills immediately beforehand centered around the same premise while telling marathon runners not to panic. Police later denied they had any warnings or were running drills, contradicting eyewitness reports.

However, while any suspicion of state involvement has been derided as a baseless conspiracy theory, claims of conservatives being responsible for the attack have begun to proliferate, despite there being zero evidence to suggest such a scenario.

Former Bill Clinton advisor David Axelrod hinted on MSNBC today that the attack could have been a form of tax protest.

“We really don’t know who did this — it was tax day. Was it someone who was pro–you know, you just don’t know,” he said.

A US Forest Service PR rep also took to Twitter to blame the bombing on the Tea Party, writing, “I fear nutty logic goes like this … Patriots Day. April 15. Tax Day. Bad government. Boston. Tea Party. Let’s show ‘em.”

Following the Aurora theater massacre last year, Time Magazine lamented the fact that Obama had not been forceful enough in seizing upon the tragedy to reinvigorate the evisceration of the second amendment.

However, others have gone even further, to the point of seemingly welcoming terror attacks and bloodshed as a means of helping Obama pose as a tough leader and in turn rallying Americans around his big government agenda.

During a 2010 appearance on Chris Matthews’ Hardball, former Clintonite and Democrat operative Mark Penn brazenly stated that Obama would need to take advantage of a massacre to get fresh momentum behind his presidency.

“Remember, President Clinton reconnected through Oklahoma, right?” Penn told Matthews. “And the president right now seems removed. It wasn’t until that speech [after the bombing] that [Clinton] really clicked with the American public. Obama needs a similar defining moment,” said Penn.

Penn was not alone in invoking how an act of mass bloodshed could ride to Obama’s political rescue.

In an article concerning Obama’s plunging popularity before the 2010 mid-terms, Robert Shapiro, former senior advisor to President Bill Clinton, wrote that the only thing that could conceivably rescue Obama’s presidency was a terror attack on the scale of the Oklahoma City bombing.

“The bottom line here is that Americans don’t believe in President Obama’s leadership,” said Shapiro, adding, “He has to find some way….of demonstrating that he is a leader who can command confidence and, short of a 9/11 event or an Oklahoma City bombing, I can’t think of how he could do that.”

Given the fact that the FBI admittedly facilitates terrorist attacks, in addition to top Democratic strategists continually calling on Obama to exploit terrorist attacks in the spirit of Rahm Emanuel’s urge to “never let a serious crisis go to waste,” should any link to a Tea Partier, a libertarian, an anti-tax protester or any political adversary of Obama emerge in the coming days, it will be ruthlessly exploited by the Obama administration to further entrench the notion – habitually reiterated by the likes of the DHS – that liberty lovers are dangerous terrorists who need to be silenced, discredited, disenfranchised and pushed to the fringes of society.

 

Obama Insider Attempts To Link Boston Bombing To ‘Tax Day’

Media mouthpieces inject “patriot” and “tea party” talking points
Steve Watson
Infowars.com
April 16, 2013

Former Obama advisor David Axelrod has joined other mainstream media mouthpieces in insinuating that the horrific Boston Marathon bombing may have been linked to “tax day”.

Appearing on MSNBC this morning, Axelrod said of the term ‘terror attack’, “The word has taken on a different meaning since 9/11. You use those words and it means something very specific in people’s mind.”

The political consultant then suggested that the president has refrained from using the term because he may believe an anti-government tax protester could have been behind the bombing, rather than a co-ordinated group of foreign terrorists.

“You use those words and it means something very specific in people’s mind. And I’m sure what was going through the president’s mind is — we really don’t know who did this — it was tax day.” Axelrod said.

“Was it someone who was pro–you know, you just don’t know.” he continued. “And so I think his attitude is, let’s not put any inference into this, let’s just make clear that we’re going to get the people responsible.”

Axelrod isnt the first talking head to inject such points into news coverage of the attack. Without any evidence whatsoever, media mouthpieces have been suggesting that the incident may have been carried out by a “home grown” radical, potentially in the vein of OKC bomber Timothy McVeigh.

BBC News coverage suggested that “chatter within the intelligence services” indicates that right wing extremists could be behind the attack, with analysts noting that the bombing occurred on Patriot’s Day, the holiday that commemorates the first battles of the American Revolutionary War. The OKC bombing in 1995 was also carried out on this day, the third Monday in April.

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer took that insinuation even further, noting “It is a state holiday, in addition to the Boston Marathon. It is a state holiday in Massachusetts today, called Patriots’ Day. And who knows if that had anything at all to do with these twin explosions?”

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews also theorized that the bombing could be the result of a protest against federal income taxes.

“As you point out, and I just forgot, I filed already. It’s filing day for the federal income tax, which does cause some emotions around the country – sometimes in the wrong parts of the brain anyway,” Matthews said during his show:

In comments to the media, Richard Barrett, the former United Nations co-ordinator for the al-Qaeda and Taliban monitoring team said that the timing of the attack on Patriots’ Day and the relatively small size of the devices suggested the work of a domestic extremist.

Barrett, who is now senior director at the Qatar International Academy for Security Studies (QIASS), said: “At the moment it looks more likely that it was a right-wing terrorist incident, rather than an al Qaeda attack because of the size of the devices.”

He added: “This happened on Patriots’ Day, it is also the day Americans are supposed to have their taxes in, and Boston is quite a symbolic city. These are all little indicators.”

Boston was, of course, the location for the famed “tea party” protest of 1773 against the tax policy of the British government and the East India Company that controlled all the tea imported into the colonies.

The suggestion that talking heads are making is that whoever carried out the bombing may be sympathetic to the modern day Tea Party movement, which advocates for limited government.

Esquire’s Charles P. Pierce also made the connection, noting that Monday is the “official Patriots Day holiday” in Massachusetts, celebrating the Battles at Lexington and Concord. He also pointed out that April 19, the actual date of the battles, is connected to Oklahoma City bomber Tim McVeigh, who apparently considered himself a “waterer of the tree of liberty and the like.”

Huffington Post blogger and Al Sharpton radio producer Nida Khan also blindly speculated that “all these anti-gov groups” could be behind the attack.

“We don’t know anything yet of course, but it is tax day & my first thought was all these anti-gov groups, but who knows,” Khan tweeted.

We don’t know anything yet of course, but it is tax day & my first thought was all these anti-gov groups, but who knows

— Nida Khan (@NidaKhanNY) April 15, 2013

former FBI agent Brad Garrett said he wouldn’t be surprised if the bombing had been carried out by a domestic extremist group or an individual in an attempt to make a statement.

He added that a “neo Nazi or a patriot group” would likely not claim responsibility right away.

“There’s a lot of public source information about demonstrations on taxes, on a number of other issues that are hot button issues for extremists groups who don’t like either what the government is doing or what the government represents,” he stated.

In addition, the official story of the attack appears to be being subtly altered to fit this media driven narrative.

A police press conference today contradicted earlier reports that more explosive devices had been found in the vicinity of the attack, and had been destroyed by bomb squads in controlled explosions. Analysts suggested that the notion of bomb squads finding and detonating extra devices within the hour were far fetched, without them having some prior intelligence of the attack.

It was also reported that a drill was being carried out in the area involving members of the Boston bomb squad.

That oddity has now been swept aside in a change of the narrative, as has the idea that the attacks were coordinated and indicative of an organised group.

Police also now claim that no arrests have been made and that there are no suspects in custody, contradicting earlier reports that a Saudi man had been arrested close to the scene of the bombing.

 

Boston Massacre: Obama Looks to Tax Day for “Rightwing” Terror Explanation

Kurt Nimmo
Infowars.com
April 16, 2013

Former Obama adviser David Axelrod set the stage for what is sure to come – responsibility for the terror attack in Boston yesterday will ultimately be pinned on so-called rightwing terrorists. Axelrod pointed directly at the liberty movement.

“I’m sure what was going through the president’s mind is – we really don’t know who did this — it was tax day,” Axelrod told Chris Todd, host of The Daily Rundown on MSNBC, the preferred network for liberals and Obama sycophants. “Was it someone who was pro – you know, you just don’t know. And so I think his attitude is, let’s not put any inference into this, let’s just make clear that we’re going to get the people responsible.”

The domestic terror script – long ago formulated and hammered into shape deep within the national security state, notably the Department of Homeland Security – is designed to implicate constitutionalists and other dangerous enemies of the state. Peter Bergen – acting as a security analyst for CNN, the network long ago infiltrated by the Pentagon – made this clear soon after the incident in Boston. On two separate occasions yesterday, Bergen suggested that “right-wing extremists” are behind the Boston Marathon bombings.

“Although I’m reminded of Oklahoma City which was a bombing, which was initially treated as a gas explosion,” Bergen said. “So first reports are often erroneous. But the fact that there were two explosions – two bombings – one of the things I’d be looking at is once the device, if it is a device, is found, what kind of explosives were used? For instance, if it was hydrogen peroxide, this is a signature of al-Qaeda. If it was more conventional explosives, which are much harder to get a hold of now, that might be some other kind of right-wing extremists. We’ve seen a number of failed bombing attempts by al-Qaeda using bombs, (unintelligible) and for instance, the Manhattan subway in 2009, Faisal Shahzad in 2010, the attempt to bring down Northwest Flight 253 over Detroit in 2009.But we’ve also seen other extremist groups, right-wing groups, for instance, trying to attack the Martin Luther King parade in Oregon (sic) in 2010.”

It should be noted that the man convicted of planting a rat-poison-laced pipe bomb along the Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade route in Spokane, Washington – not Oregon – was a white supremacist member of the National Alliance. The National Alliance’s supposed leader, Green Beret David Kellerman, has admitted working for the FBI. During a trial on weapons charges Kellerman “said he went to work for the FBI with orders to infiltrate the National Alliance, a neo-Nazi group, in 2000 and relay intelligence,” the Miami Herald reported.

The corporate media embarked on a rightwing explanation almost from the beginning. “The first is that domestic right-wing extremists were responsible. The second is that Islamists, either foreign or American, and linked to al-Qaeda spiritually or practically, were to blame. A third possibility is killers with no ideological agenda whatsoever,” reports The Telegraph.

The British newspaper then launched into a protracted explanation and referenced the establishment’s Rosetta Stone on crackpot domestic terrorism theories, the Southern Poverty Law Center:

Supporters of the right-wing theory point to the timing of the attack. April 15 is tax day in the United States, when the whole nation is expected to file tax returns. It is an ominous day in the calendar for anti-government, anti-tax activists.

It is shortly before the anniversaries of two other terrorist attacks, the Oklahoma City bombing on April 19 and the Columbine High School shooting on April 20. Some terror experts have speculated that right-wingers could have seen the Boston marathon as a liberal, multicultural bonanza somehow worthy of targeting.

There has also been huge growth in the number of anti-government “Patriot” groups during Barack Obama’s presidency. The Southern Poverty Law Centre, which monitors hate groups, reported last month that because of the prospect of gun-control legislation, “the threat of violence appears to be looming.”

The SPLC said that the number of Patriot groups reached record levels in 2012 and had grown by 813 percent over the past four years.

In early March, the SPLC sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano urging the government to establish a task force to investigate the supposed domestic terror threat posed by the likes of Alex Jones, We Are Change, Oath Keepers, theConstitution Party, the Tyranny Response Team and thousands of other Americans outside of the orbit of the establishment.

The incident in Boston may or may not expedite the demand by the SPLC to engage in a McCarthyite inquisition of constitutionalist political groups. It will largely depend on how the blame game pans out – either the establishment and its barking dog media blames al-Qaeda or some other shadowy Islamic terrorist group or it utilizes the mythology cobbled together by the SPLC and other politically motivated smear groups to go after “rightwing” Americans who believe the nation must return to its constitutional roots.

 

YouTube Censors Family Guy Clip Which Predicted Boston Marathon Attack

Media floats erroneous claim that issue is an “abhorrent hoax”

Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
April 16, 2013

UPDATE: YouTube has now censored a commentary video which merely pointed out that a recently broadcast episode of Family Guy contained scenes eerily similar to those that unfolded during the Boston Marathon attack. YouTube deleted the video claiming it contained, “spam,” “scams” or “commercially deceptive content,” when it contained none of these things. YouTube has also placed a strike against the host channel and threatened to delete it.

In addition, it is now being claimed that the whole issue is an “abhorrent hoax” merely because the two scenes from the same episode were spliced together. The fact that the episode depicted people being killed at the Boston Marathon, in addition to a separate clip which depicted two explosions, is not a hoax.

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane created a cartoon which made fun of terrorist bombings and depicted mutilated Boston Marathon runners, yet he is labeling people who merely talk about the episode as “abhorrent”.

Tivo and others are now removing the episode from their systems, which is strange given that the episode is supposedly a “hoax” and doesn’t exist, according to the media.

This underscores the fact that if they will censor a cartoon in the aftermath of a terrorist attack, they will censor anything – including your right to merely talk about it.

An episode of the popular show Family Guy which was first aired less than a month ago eerily predicted aspects of the Boston Marathon attack, depicting the main character detonating two bombs in addition to winning the marathon by killing the rest of the participants.

The episode, named Turban Cowboy, centers around Peter becoming embroiled with terrorists who plan on blowing up bridges in Boston. The show aired on March 17, just under a month ago on the Fox network and has been repeated in recent days.

The image of Peter killing the Boston Marathon runners even shows blood and missing limbs, a chilling reminder of the very real scenes of carnage we saw yesterday.

It is important to note that the video shows two clips from different points of the show edited together, but they are from the same episode.

Critics responded to the episode by remarking that it “feels like an episode made in 2002 and left on the shelf for a decade.”

The plot was so similar to the tragic events in Boston yesterday that scenes have been deleted for rebroadcasts.

Eyewitness: Authorities “Must Have Known” About Bombing

Spotters on roof for “drill” before explosions at Boston marathon

Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
April 16, 2013

Despite police refusing to acknowledge that they had any warning of the bombing attack on the Boston Marathon, eyewitness Ali Stevenson says authorities “must have known” of a threat because they announced a drill beforehand and had spotters on the roof at the start of the race.

Stevenson has gone into further detail about what he experienced in the morning at the start of the race, when participants in the marathon were told by police to stay calm as loudspeakers announced a bomb drill.

“At the starting line this morning, they had bomb sniffing dogs and the bomb squad out there,” he said. “They kept announcing to runners not to be alarmed, that they were running a training exercise,” Stevenson told AL.com.

However, during a press conference, Boston police told Infowars reporter Dan Bidondi that there was “no specific intelligence” regarding an attack and that no drills took place besides the usual precautions taken for a big event.

When Bidondi again attempted to ask police about why people were being told to remain calm before the bombs exploded, there was no response.

“They kept making announcements saying to the participants ‘do not worry, this is just a training exercise’” said Stevenson, who is the University of Mobile’s Cross Country Coach.

“Evidently, I don’t believe they were just having a training exercise, they must have known,” Stevenson told Local15 News. “They must have had some sort of threat or suspicion called in,” adding that spotters were stationed on roofs of buildings and that bomb sniffing dogs were going up and down the finish line.

Stevenson said the level of security he witnessed was unlike anything he had experienced as a marathon runner before in major cities such as Chicago, Washington D.C., and London.

Photographic evidence confirms Stevenson’s claim that there were spotters on the roof before the bombs exploded.

As the Daily Mail reports, “A picture posted on Twitter shows an individual walking on the roof directly overlooking one of the blasts at the Boston Marathon.”

The fact that this individual is in such close proximity to the blast clearly suggests that he is either one of the perpetrators behind the attack or a police officer detailed with carrying out surveillance duties as part of the bomb drill.

Mike Adams explains, other inconsistencies in the official narrative also clearly suggest that the blasts were not unexpected.

“It is impossible for a bomb squad to have located, analyzed, rigged and detonated the third bomb in under an hour, especially when it was located one mile away, at the Kennedy Presidential Library,” he writes. “The Boston bomb squad clearly had advanced notice of the presence of the bombs at the marathon, and they also had advanced notice of the location of the bomb at the Kennedy Presidential Library. “

 

Boston Marathon Bombing: Who Do They Plan To Blame?

“You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”Rahm Emanuel, former White House Chief Of Staff to Barack Obama

Photo: Aaron Tang.

While many people might immediately dismiss the concept, any student of true and unadulterated history has to eventually admit this fact:  Governments exploit crisis.  Sometimes, they merely take advantage of the ensuing chaos and aftermath of a disaster they had nothing to do with directly.  Other times, they create those disasters themselves in order to engineer social and political opportunity.

In regard to the recent bombing of the Boston Marathon, which killed three people and injured at least 140, I have asked “Who do they plan to blame?”  The unaware and naïve will state that “They will blame the true culprit behind the attack, of course!”  Unfortunately, in the past couple decades I have seen numerous terrorist attacks where the blame was NOT placed on the true culprit, or, the blame was extended to totally uninvolved groups and organizations in order to politicize the event.  Governments (especially our government) squeeze each man-made disaster like a ripe papaya until every drop of sweet advantage can be collected.  They use our fear and confusion as license to attack a predetermined list of targets that may or may not have had anything to do with the original event.  They tell the story in a way that suits their end-line interests, and the last thing they are concerned with is helping the public to “understand”.  In the end, what average citizens see as an authoritative analysis on the facts from their “loving” leaders is in reality nothing more than an exercise in fantasy.

Now, the thought of persons and institutions within our government being malicious enough to create a terrorist event to be used to manipulate the public towards a certain end tends to bring out furious denial in some Americans.  This is because those people with weak characters and an even weaker sense of identity tend to attach their egos to the collective.  They live vicariously through the group, or the nation state, so that the State’s accomplishments and trials become THEIR accomplishments and trails.  To accuse the state of criminality is to accuse them of criminality.

The Boston bombing already has the makings of a subversive and highly exploitable false flag event, and certain undertones remind me of the now exposed Operation Gladio, a false flag program utilized by NATO governments (including the U.S.) for decades which involved multiple bombings and mass shootings of high traffic public areas across Europe that were then falsely blamed on “left-wing terrorists”.  The operation was exposed in the early 1990’s by the Italian government, and then quickly swept into the dust bin of history.

Vincenzo Vinciguerra, a far-right terrorist linked to Gladio and currently serving a life-sentence for the car bomb murder of three policemen stated during sworn testimony on Gladio in March of 2001:

“You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game…”

“The reason was quite simple. They were supposed to force these people, the Italian public, to turn to the state to ask for greater security. This is the political logic that lies behind all the massacres and the bombings which remain unpunished, because the state cannot convict itself or declare itself responsible for what happened…”

The strategy used by NATO was clear – terrorize the common population, target as many innocents as possible in places where they felt most comfortable and at ease, and drive the citizenry into the waiting arms of the establishment.  The tactic creates the cancerous spread of public tension because the sense of “distance” from violence is removed.  An attack could literally happen anytime, anywhere.  A predetermined scapegoat enemy is then presented, completing the circle and galvanizing the people in the direction the establishment desires.

The methods used in Europe to demonize “left-wing” political movements could just as easily be used to demonize what some call “right-wing” political movements here in the U.S.  Let’s look at some of the facts surrounding the Boston incident so far:

Boston authorities and witnesses on the scene admit that bomb sniffing dogs and roof spotters were employed before the race even began.  The local bomb squad was also coincidentally running a “controlled explosion drill” only one mile away from the attack:

http://www.local15tv.com/mostpopular/story/UM-Coach-Bomb-Sniffing-Dogs-Spotters-on-Roofs/BrirjAzFPUKKN8z6eSDJEA.cspx

Participants at the race were told repeatedly not to worry, and that a “training exercise” was taking place.  In nearly every major terror attack since 9/11, from the U.S., to the UK and Spain, the government was running “training exercises and drills” fitting the EXACT description of the threat that then suddenly occurred in real life on the same day.  Perhaps it is only an overtly reoccurring negative serendipity, but in my view, if the authorities are running a training exercise for a bombing in your town, it might be best to run for the hills before their little war-game becomes real yet again.

Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis also stated that authorities were not aware of any specific threats to the marathon before it began, which means that they are not presenting any claims that they had reason to believe a bombing might take place:

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/dozens-people-injured-explosion-boston-marathon-190955311.html

So, just to clarify, the Boston police on the suggestion of…someone, decided to run bomb squad training, bomb sniffing dogs, and rooftop spotters on the exact same day that the Boston Marathon happened to be bombed…just because?

I would add to this conundrum another question – With all those bomb sniffing dogs present, and with multiple devices now found on the scene, how did they not find at least one of the explosive packages before people were killed?  Those dogs need to be fired, I suppose…

Along with the immediate strangeness of the attack, the timing is also rather perfect for the establishment.

April 15th is tax day across the nation, and Tax Protest Day sponsored annually by Tea Party organizations across the country also just happened to fall on the 15th this year.  On top of this, in Massachusetts, Patriots Day (a civic holiday celebrating the battles of Lexington and Concord) is held on the third Monday of April every year, which just happened to be the 15th this year.  Oath Keepers, a constitutional organization often wrongly attacked as a “domestic extremist group” by the DHS and SPLC, just happened to have a large pro-freedom rally scheduled for the 19th of April at Lexington Green in Massachusetts.  Are we starting to get the picture here?

With the Senate in the midst of the most blatant attack on our 2nd Amendment rights in history following the passage of the absurdly fascist NDAA and the White House’s unwillingness to remove American citizens as potential targets for executive ordered assassination,  and with multiple states now implementing draconian gun restrictions and even confiscations, public opinion is clearly turning against the Federal Government.  Wouldn’t it be beneficial for their agenda if it turned out that the Boston Marathon Bombing was executed by a group of “pro-gun anti-income tax anti-government domestic terrorists”, or maybe just Constitutionalists and Liberty Movement activists that are labeled as such?

Wouldn’t that be a big turn-off for those on the fence but shifting towards gun rights and constitutionalism?  Wouldn’t it be great for the DHS and the SPLC if all their anti-Constitutionalist propaganda was suddenly proven “correct”?  Maybe the TSA could even suggest roving street checkpoints and random searches so that such a calamity “never happens again”.

No suspects have yet been named in the marathon attacks, and none have claimed responsibility, so perhaps I am jumping to conclusions.  Perhaps we’ll find out those dastardly North Koreans were behind it all, or maybe those devious Iranians.  However, I can’t shake off that smell of a setup lurking in the musty sickly statist air, and the mainstream media is already suggesting “right-wing involvement” (why don’t they ever suggest left-wing extremism as a possibility…?).

As I have said many times before, during any crisis, always look at who benefited the most from the event.  Look at who had something to gain, rather than the first scapegoats they throw in front of you.  Some terror attacks are real, and some are proven as staged, but never forget that government power structures do not see these tragedies as tragedies; rather, they see them as gifts; precious openings that create vulnerabilities in the psyche of the citizenry.  They WILL exploit these vulnerabilities to further their own agenda, and they WILL exploit the Boston Marathon Bombing to demoralize and marginalize their political enemies.  Count on it.

 

Expert blames right-wing terrorists

THE fatal explosions in Boston have hints of a right-wing terrorist attack rather than al-Qaeda-inspired extremism, according to one of the world’s leading experts on counter-terrorism.

Richard Barrett, the former United Nations co-ordinator for the al-Qaeda and Taliban monitoring team, said it was too early to say who was to blame for the marathon blasts.

But Barrett, who has served with MI5, MI6 and the British Foreign Office, said the timing of the attack on Patriots’ Day and the relatively small size of the devices suggested the work of a domestic extremist.

His comments came after US supercop Bill Bratton, a former head of Boston police who is now based in London, warned there are "no shortage of potential suspects" behind the explosions.

Barrett, who is now senior director at the Qatar International Academy for Security Studies (QIASS), said: "At the moment it looks more likely that it was a right-wing terrorist incident, rather than an al Qaeda attack because of the size of the devices."

He added: "This happened on Patriots’ Day, it is also the day Americans are supposed to have their taxes in, and Boston is quite a symbolic city. These are all little indicators."

Barrett, who is also a former member of a UN task force for promoting global counter-terrorism strategy, said behind the scenes a "very intense" investigation will be unfolding.

"In addition, security arrangements for other events will be quickly reviewed," he said.

"There is Margaret Thatcher’s funeral tomorrow and the London Marathon on Sunday. However, there are thousands of these events coming up all the time."

Barrett said the number of right-wing extremist incidents in the US since the September 11 attacks was quite high.

From 2002 to 2007, nine right-wing extremists were indicted for their roles in politically motivated murders.

But between 2008 and 2012, the number mushroomed to 53, according to figures by the New America Foundation.

Before this period, domestic terrorist Eric Rudolph attacked a number of sites including the Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta in the name of an anti-abortion and anti-gay agenda.

And in 1995, right-winger Timothy McVeigh detonated a truck bomb in front of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, killing 168 people and injuring more than 800.

Barrett said al-Qaeda attacks normally involve terrorists who have trained using instructions from the internet or at a training camp, which usually helps identify them.

In contrast, domestic terrorists operate in isolation or through a small number of acquaintances and often have smaller targets in mind.

"That’s why many al-Qaeda terrorists have been thwarted – they’re too ambitious," he said.

 

Official story unraveling for Boston marathon bombing

Clear evidence points to bomb squad’s prior knowledge

It’s now becoming clear that members of the Boston bomb squad had advanced notice of the horrific bombing that took place at the marathon today. As an eyewitness reports, once the bombs went off, officials began announcing, “this is just a drill!” This logically means they were all informed of the “bomb drill” beforehand. Otherwise, why would they respond with, “this is just a drill” ?

According to Local15TV.com, a University of Mobile’s Cross Country Coach said there were bomb-sniffing dogs at both the start and finish lines, long before any explosions went off. He said:

“They kept making announcements on the loud speaker that it was just a drill and there was nothing to worry about. It seemed like there was some sort of threat, but they kept telling us it was just a drill.”

The official story of the bombing is that terrorists detonated two bombs at the marathon finish line and that the Boston bomb squad magically located a third bomb one mile away, identified the bomb, rigged it with explosives and initiated a “controlled explosion” all in less than an hour! (Absurd.)

The official story sounds like nothing more than a cover story.

Here are some of the facts we know so far

1) Bomb-sniffing dogs were present at the start of the race and the finish line, even before bombs went off.

2) The reported arrest of a “Saudi national” has now been retracted. Apparently that was a mistake published by the NY Post.

3) Instead, the mainstream media is pushing a new narrative that blames “right-wing extremists” for the bombing, even without a shred of evidence to back that up.

4) It is impossible for a bomb squad to have located, analyzed, rigged and detonated the third bomb in under an hour, especially when it was located one mile away, at the Kennedy Presidential Library.

See the map, below:

Why did the Boston bomb squad know all this in advance?

Given these facts, ask yourself: Who is the most likely culprit in the bombing?

The Boston bomb squad clearly had advanced notice of the presence of the bombs at the marathon, and they also had advanced notice of the location of the bomb at the Kennedy Presidential Library.

There are two reasonable explanations for this:

1) Someone called in a warning and threatened to bomb the event, which is why the bomb squad was on scene.

2) The bomb squad carried out the bombing as a false flag operation to achieve a political goal (unleashing TSA on the streets, blaming right wingers, increasing the bomb squad budget, etc.).

For explanation number one: If a credible threat had been called in, why didn’t the Boston police cancel the marathon or try to warn runners about the security threat? Is it their policy to allow people to jog right into a massacre they’ve already been warned about?

For the second explanation, there are all sorts of reasons why the Boston bomb squad might have placed the bombs at the marathon. It could have been a drill that went terribly wrong (i.e. no explosions were planned but they accidentally went off), or it could have been a deliberate attempt to terrorize the American people and justify armed TSA agents on the streets for all future sporting events.

This looks more and more like a planned event to justify a TSA lockdown

Although it’s still a bit early to know for certain, this looks more and more like a planned event that was deployed by the Boston bomb squad, called a “drill,” then used as a pretext for the President to call for TSA agents to be on the streets at all future sporting events.

And that, in turn, is the run-up to the TSA occupation of America, which has always been the goal of Obama. Remember that back on the campaign trail, he announced he wanted to build a “civilian national security force.”

Click here to watch the video where Obama says:

“We’ve gotta have a civilian national security force that’s just a powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded…”

The fastest way to build a domestic national security force is to stage domestic bombings as a pretext. More and more, that seems to be what unfolded today in Boston.

Remember, too, that DHS has now purchased over 2 billion rounds of ammunition to be used domestically, against the American people. (The number was 1.6 but has now been upgraded to over 2 billion.)

The real proof is in what happens next

Regardless of what you might think is behind this right now, the real proof will be found in what Obama calls for in response to the bombings.

If he calls for TSA on the streets of America to “keep everybody safe” at sporting events, then it’s all clearly a false flag rolled out for a political purpose. It was all a pretext to justify a TSA lockdown.

If the bombing is used to frame and blame veterans, patriots or “right-wing extremists,” then it’s clearly a false flag, too. Veterans and patriots have been severely demonized by the Obama administration as well as the leftist media.

If the administration avoids using the bombings to roll out its political agenda, then it might have legitimately been a random terrorist attack by a deranged individual. We’ll have to wait and see what Obama calls for in reaction to the attacks in order to know their true political purpose.
