Washington's Fake Terror Threat

Politics / US Politics Aug 04, 2013 - 01:04 PM GMT

By: Stephen_Lendman

Politics

They're in various forms. They repeat with disturbing regularity. America's war on terror targets Islam. At issue is duplicitous scaremongering. It advances Washington's imperium. 

Wars of aggression follow. False arrests target innocent victims. Terror threats repeat. They're strategically timed. They change the subject. They divert attention.

They fool most Americans. They do so most of the time. Here we go again. Media scoundrels march in lockstep. They regurgitate Big Lies. 

On August 2, The New York Times headlined "Qaeda Messages Prompt US Terror Warning," saying:

"The United States intercepted electronic communications this week among senior operatives of Al Qaeda, in which the terrorists discussed attacks against American interests in the Middle East and North Africa, American officials said Friday."

"The intercepts and a subsequent analysis of them by American intelligence agencies prompted the United States to issue an unusual global travel alert to American citizens on Friday, warning of the potential for terrorist attacks by operatives of Al Qaeda and their associates beginning Sunday through the end of August."

Fact check

Al Qaeda's a longstanding US asset. It's used strategically as enemy and ally. Terror threats are fabricated. Bin Ladin was used as "Enemy Number One" years after he died.

Obama didn't kill him. He was seriously ill with kidney disease. He had other illnesses. In December 2011, he died naturally. The Pakistan Observer reported it. So did BBC and Fox News. 

In July 2002, The New York Times said he's been dead for "almost six months." He was "buried in the mountains of southeast Afghanistan."

On August 1, 2013, The State Department headlined "Temporary Post Closures and Worldwide Travel Alert." It's like previous ones. They're fake.
"The following posts normally open on Sunday will be closed" on August 3 and 4, 2013. It's because of "increased security concerns."

"For further information, please click on the links below. A Worldwide Travel Alert has also been issued."

US Embassy Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
US Embassy Algiers, Algeria
US Embassy Amman, Jordan
US Embassy Baghdad, Iraq
US Consulate Basrah, Iraq
US Embassy Cairo, Egypt
US Consulate Dhahran, Saudi Arabia
US Embassy Djibouti, Djibouti
US Embassy Dhaka, Bangladesh 
US Embassy Doha, Qatar
US Consulate Dubai, United Arab Emirates
US Consulate Erbil, Iraq
US Consulate Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
US Embassy Kabul, Afghanistan
US Embassy Khartoum, Sudan
US Embassy Kuwait City, Kuwait
US Embassy Manama, Bahrain
US Embassy Muscat, Oman
US Embassy Nouakchott, Mauritania 
US Embassy Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
US Embassy Sana'a, Yemen
US Embassy Tripoli, Libya

According to an unnamed senior American official,"more than the usual chatter" was intercepted. Specifics were omitted. There are none. They don't exist.

They come at Ramadan's close. They followed Russia granting Snowden asylum. They came three days after fake Israeli/Palestinian peace talks began.

They're during worsening economic crisis conditions. They affect growing millions. They're when Washington threatens escalated war on Syria. 

They're at the same time administration officials try justifying institutionalized global spying. Meta-data mining is standard practice. NSA monitors everyone it targets all the time everywhere.

Russell Tice is a former Office of Naval Intelligence/Defense Intelligence Agency/NSA analyst. His career spanned 20 years. 

In December 2005, he accused NSA and DIA of unconstitutionally wiretapping US citizens. He got national attention, saying:

"Everyone at NSA knew what they were doing was illegal, because it’s drilled into our heads over and over that it’s against NSA policy, that you do not do that. The choice is to speak out and get fired."

On August 1, he was interviewed on PBS' News Hour. He said NSA collects "everything." It accumulates content "word for word, everything of every domestic communication in this country."

Every phone call, email, and other personal communication is gathered and stored. Nothing escapes its scrutiny. It lies claiming otherwise. Meta-data collection is official policy. It's longstanding. It's done with technological ease.

Earlier he said NSA "targets, sucks-in, stores and analyzes illegally obtained content from the masses in the United States." 

Elected officials are monitored. So are federal judges. Candidate Obama's phone was tapped. His private emails were read.

Public awareness grows. Fearmongering diverts attention. False flags shift attention from what matters. Administration officials take full advantage.

On August 2, Russia Today headlined "US issues global travel alert over al-Qaeda attack threat," saying:

It "warn(ed) US citizens about the 'continued potential for terrorist attacks' in the Middle East and North Africa."

It comes weeks ahead of the 12th 9/11 anniversary. It's also the Benghazi, Libya first anniversary.

The travel alert remains throughout August. The State Department "alert(ed) US citizens to the continued potential for terrorist attacks, particularly in the Middle East and North Africa and possibly occurring and emanating from the Arabian Peninsula."

"Current information suggest that al-Qaeda and affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorists attacks booth in the region and beyond and they may focus efforts to conduct attacks in the period between now and the end of August."

Americans were warned about potential dangers on subways, air travel, railways, ships, other forms of public transportation, and prime tourist sites.

Media scoundrels regurgitate fearmongering. They do it ad nauseam. On August 3, CNN headlined "US issues global travel alert, to close embassies due to al Qaeda threat."

Embassy closings and travel alert warning remain in place. Britain and Germany said they'll "close their embassies in the Yemeni capital, Sana'a, on Sunday and Monday. The UK Foreign Office said it was a precautionary measure."

An unnamed US senior official in Yemen called the threat there "much worse than it has (been) in a long time."

According to other unnamed US officials:

"Various Western targets - not just those tied to the United States -are under threat."

Former US ambassador to Iraq Christopher Hill said:

"There have been incidents where they've closed down a number of embassies in the Middle East because the information is not specific enough to say that 'embassy X' got to be closed as opposed to other embassies." 

"But I think this, closing all of these embassies in the Middle East to North Africa, is in fact unprecedented. At least, I didn't see this during my career."

Unsubstantiated fearmongering lacks credibility. The usual "experts" hype it. US broadcasters and cable channels feature them. So do major broadsheets.

Notable past terror attacks were false flags. Perhaps Obama has another one in mind. Perhaps multiple ones. Maybe something major.

Last April's Boston Marathon bombing was a black ops scheme. It was state-sponsored terrorism. Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were set up. They were innocent patsies. 

They had nothing to do with it. Police murdered Tamerlan in cold blood. Dzhokhar faces longterm hard time.

The FBI bears responsibility for US terror plots. So does CIA. It's longstanding policy. Post-9/11, it escalated.

Bush declared war on terrorism. Obama continues what he began. Washington needs enemies. When none exist, they're invented.

Muslims are America's target of choice. Innocent victims are entrapped. Doing so lets FBI operatives claim fabricated war on terror victories. 

It lets NSA officials saying spying uncovers plots before they hatch. It lets America get away with murder. It does so on a global scale. 

Lies, damn lies, and repeated lies facilitate state sponsored terrorism. It remains ongoing. Lots more is planned. America's waging war on humanity. It's longstanding US policy.
