SMOKE UP THE ARSE
I’m going to cover this ground once more (hopefully not after this), because I think it bears one more mention. As I said in a recent post, the recent airline ‘bomb plot’ from the UK had all the earmarks of being another Blair/Bush publicity stunt. Every passing day seems to prove my suspicions correct. After the big splash in the corporate media, and the latest round of ridiculous ‘security’ measures being foisted upon the traveling public (no toothpaste on the plane? WTF?!), we have seen a marked drop in the breathless, graphics-heavy corporate media declarations of Armageddon diverted. Apparently, the reason for this drop is that the ‘plot’ was all bullshit.
Read the truth according to Craig Murray.
So this, I believe, is the true story.
None of the alleged terrorists had made a bomb. None had bought a plane ticket. Many did not even have passports, which given the efficiency of the UK Passport Agency would mean they couldn’t be a plane bomber for quite some time.
In the absence of bombs and airline tickets, and in many cases passports, it could be pretty difficult to convince a jury beyond reasonable doubt that individuals intended to go through with suicide bombings, whatever rash stuff they may have bragged in internet chat rooms.
What is more, many of those arrested had been under surveillance for over a year – like thousands of other British Muslims. And not just Muslims. Like me. Nothing from that surveillance had indicated the need for early arrests.
Then an interrogation in Pakistan revealed the details of this amazing plot to blow up multiple planes – which, rather extraordinarily, had not turned up in a year of surveillance. Of course, the interrogators of the Pakistani dictator have their ways of making people sing like canaries. As I witnessed in Uzbekistan, you can get the most extraordinary information this way. Trouble is it always tends to give the interrogators all they might want, and more, in a desperate effort to stop or avert torture. What it doesn’t give is the truth.
Believe me, it gets worse; you should read the whole thing.
