911 Warnings Put Bush Under Fire, Issues More Fake Terror Alerts

Analysis. As the corrupt Bush administration reels over reports of 911 terror warnings over a month before, the Bush team deflects criticism by issuing more fake terror alerts.
U.S. Abuzz With New Terror Warnings
 http://news.bbc.co.uk/hi/english/world/americas/newsid_1996000/1996240.stm

The Bushies are feeling the heat over their foreknowledge of 911 attacks. The suspicions of millions of Americans that the Bush cartel turned a blind eye to the impending terror attacks is suddenly confirmed. The Bush Administration, packed with convicted criminals from the Iran-Contra scandal, continues to exploit the 911 attacks for personal wealth and power. The Bush team's connections to big oil and lawless energy firms is all-too-well documented. Outraged by the disclosure of pre-911 warnings, the public is asking some tough questions of the Bush administration—and the President's unresponsiveness. For example, why did Bush spend the month of August 2001 on his ranch in Texas? In the wake of this criticism, Cheney and the Bush team simply roll out predictions of new terror attacks. It's one of the oldest tricks in dirty politics:

"Naturally the common people don't want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, IT IS THE LEADERS of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is TELL THEM THEY ARE BEING ATTACKED, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. IT WORKS THE SAME IN ANY COUNTRY." —Goering at the Nuremberg Trials

This is one of the most dangerous times to live in a big city in the U.S. The criminals in power are not going to let their dictatorial powers slip away. The more pressure on the Bushies now, the more likely the CIA will allow, assist, or perpetrate a sizable terror attack on a major U.S. city. Alternatively, they may plant, then hunt and disable a small nuke over a period of 24-48 hours. Recall the Urban Warrior games in SF in early 1999. The "exercise" was specifically to find and disable a small nuke or bioweapon somewhere in SF (the Presidio). A dress rehearsal for fake terror and martial law.

The sheeple are getting a bit tired of the constant and vague terror warnings, and a few are asking the right questions. The Bushies need another dose of fake terror prop up their power grab.

A few obvious points they will exploit. The next attack will most likely come on the west coast, or possible the U.K. or Western European country. A big west coast city is most likely, particularly one where the antiwar movement is strong. A large nuke would be too destructive and hurt their interests too much. A 'dirty bomb' is somewhat unlikely, because any residual material could be examined and the origin of its materials traced [to some U.S. source]. I would expect it to be a mini nuke, like those they've been working on for years. It will serve their interests perfectly. With a mini-nuke and even a small thermonuclear reaction, any evidence of the device and its design will be vaporized. The claim will be it was a larger al Qaeda nuke that malfunctioned and created a much smaller thermonuclear reaction when detonated, so they'll tell us we were lucky. In the aftermath, martial law will be declared, at least in the state where the incident occurs, but most likely across the nation. We'll have another dragnet scooping up thousands of potential suspects that will include core antiwar activists, and others unhappy with the perpetual war for perpetual peace. The alternative is to issue an alert for a major city (or the country), declare martial law, then proceed with the activist and immigrant roundup. They'll find the "device" within 48 hours (probably 36 to allow for enough media saturation and fake terror), then point the finger at the enemy of their choosing. Of course, the public will never actually see the device to verify its authenticity. Only a handful of CIA agents and one or two "experts" are needed to "verify" the fake nuke's functionality.

What city will they use? San Diego is practically a military base, no need to bother there. L.A. and Hollywood are needed for the propaganda machine. SF would be fine, except a thermonuclear reaction would devastate silicon valley. If something happens in SF, it will ONLY be a scare, or perhaps a landmark target like a bridge. Seattle is an option, but too close to Microsoft and the computer industry. Anything happening in Seattle will also only be a scare. That leaves Portland, whose law enforcement has already broken with Federal dictates to round-up-and-hold suspects without evidence or charges against them. Portland also has a strong antiwar and environmental movement. The U.S. secret police would love having carte blanche to round up effective organizers and activists, seize their computers and other property, and incarcerate them indefinitely without charges. Ditto for SF and Seattle.

The latest FBI "warning" of bombs in apartment buildings rings absurd. Al Qaeda may be ruthless, but they're not stupid or pointless. They would choose their targets much better than that. So you get the American KGB to have a few bombs go off in some anti-war or environmentalist's apartment, blame whoever, then start the dragnet on dissent in the homeland. It's just Cointelpro revisited.

Suddenly there's a new video of Bin Laden circulating, a day or two after the media turns on Bush. Is it one of those false Pentagon news releases, Disney animatronics, a Lucasfilm special, or have they been sitting on this video until the time they needed it for media chum? How did the UK press get this video, and from whom? The CIA? The Pentagon?

Fake terror empowers fake leaders. Watch closely as the Bush Administration plays the terror card to overcome criticism in the next few weeks.
