Phony Terror Case Prompts Corporate Media Feeding Frenzy
September 22, 2009
The Associated Press is reporting that so-called counterterrorism officials have issued security bulletins to police around the nation about terrorists’ desire to attack stadiums, entertainment complexes and hotels. The bulletins sent to the cops mention an alleged al-Qaeda “training manual” that specifically lists “blasting and destroying the places of amusement, immorality, and sin… and attacking vital economic centers” as desired targets of the CIA designed global terror and boogieman network.
It should be common knowledge to readers of Infowars and those who listen to the Alex Jones Show that the CIA, Pakistan’s ISI, Mossad, and MI-6 created al-Qaeda — taking the name from a Mujahideen database — and also manufactured much of what today passes for “Islamic terror” and global jihadism.
“Official ‘war on terrorism’ disinformation is repeated ad nauseum, accepted as fact by the mass populace, and used as the justification for ever-expanding Anglo-American war and ever-deepening criminality,” writes Larry Chin. “Virtually no attention is paid to the Anglo-American support and management of ‘Al-Qaeda’ and other ‘terror’ groups. Little or no attention is devoted to the criminally fabricated nature of modern ‘terrorism’ or the fact that every major ‘terrorism’ event in recent times has been a US or US-allied covert operation, followed by political manipulation and cover-up.”
As usual, the FBI and DHS are playing along, even though the secret police agencies “have no information regarding the timing, location or target of any planned attack.” Regardless, they “believe it is prudent to raise the security awareness of our local law enforcement partners regarding the targets and tactics of previous terrorist activity,” largely the product of the above mentioned organizations, as pointed out by Chin and no shortage of others.
The AP notes that law enforcement bulletins are not intended for the public, but they were released this time around because they correlate with the latest phony terrorist case. John Byrne, writing for Raw Story, explained earlier today how the corporate media is engaged in a feeding frenzy over another government terror case, even though the feds have yet to charge anybody and it appears their case is baseless, as usual.
Getting us accustomed to uniformed troops: Army National Guard soldiers keep watch inside Grand Central Station Tuesday, Sept. 22, 2009 in New York.
It appears even some members of the corporate media are growing tired of endless and transparently bogus terror plots. Andrew Cohen, writing for CBS, said the almost complete lack of evidence against the supposed al-Qaeda bad guys didn’t stop the feds “from clicking off all of the elements of their perennial song-and-dance number in terror-plot cases; this time from New York to Denver to Washington and back. The prejudicial leaks from law enforcement; the prompt (and promptly repeated) links to al Qaeda; the dramatic headlines, the identification of a ‘person of interest;’ the assurances that no particular target had been specified; the intercession of an overwhelmed defense attorney; the denials, the meetings, the breakdown in talks, and, finally, the arrest (late at night, but with the tipped-off news cameras hovering above and about).”
In short, the arrests late Saturday night of Najibullah Zazi and his father, Wali Mohammed Zazi, were orchestrated for corporate media consumption and to keep the fallacious idea that “they hate us for our freedoms” front and center. Americans have a tendency to forget about such nonsense if it is not sensationalized by the media.
The bulletins also serve to further propagandize increasingly federalized local law enforcement. The phantom al-Qaeda threat will also be used to explain why there are National Guard “security” troops on the streets, a fact highlighted by Alex Jones on his show earlier today.
The insubstantial terror case now unfolding in New York and Colorado has prompted officials around the nation to step up patrols in subways and on mass transit. “New York City’s transit agency said Tuesday it increased police presence around the city in light of the ongoing probe and the law enforcement notices,” the AP reports.
Extra officers — with helmets, bulletproof vests, large rifles and dogs — were seen Tuesday morning at spots like Grand Central Terminal in midtown Manhattan. The U.N.’s General Assembly, with leaders from around the world and President Barack Obama, is several blocks away.
It is no mistake the Associated Press — a valued Operation Mockingbird asset — insinuated that Obama was at risk. It adds an ominous character to what should be considered another attempt by the DHS and FBI to scare the dickens out of average Americans and indoctrinate them into believing there is a threat out there when in fact the terrorist threat — at least from the likes of the CIA contrivance al-Qaeda — is nonexistent.
