A breathtaking testimony was given this past week in the aftermath of the Underwear Bomber trial by someone who was on the flight and witnessed the bomber passing through security and boarding the plane. The “Victim Impact Statement” was read in open court by a Michigan man under state law that allows victims five minutes to say how they were affected by a crime. Kurt Haskell and his wife, Lori flew back to Detroit from Amsterdam that fateful day, and recounted the following:
On Christmas Day 2009, my wife and I were returning from an African safari and had a connecting flight through Amsterdam. As we waited for our flight, we sat on the floor next to the boarding gate. What I witnessed while sitting there and subsequent events have changed my life forever. While I sat there, I witnessed Umar dressed in jeans and a white t-shirt, being escorted around security by a man in a tan suit who spoke perfect American English and who aided Umar in boarding without a passport. The airline gate worker initially refused Umar boarding until the man in the tan suit intervened. The event meant nothing to me at the time. Little did I know that Umar would try to kill me a few hours later as our flight approached Detroit. The final 10 minutes of our flight after the attack were the worst minutes of my life. During those 10 minutes I sat paralyzed in fear. Unfortunately, what happened next has had an even greater impact on my life and has saddened me further.
When we landed, I was shocked that our plane taxied up to the gate. I was further shocked that we were forced to sit on the plane for 20 minutes with powder from the so called bomb all over the cabin. The officers that boarded the plane did nothing to ensure our safety and did not check for accomplices or other explosive devices. Several passengers trampled through parts of the bomb as they exited the plane. We were then taken into the terminal with our unchecked carry on bags. Again, there was no concern for our safety even though Umar told the officers that there was another bomb on board as he exited the plane. I wondered why nobody was concerned about our safety, accomplices or other bombs and the lack of concern worried me greatly. I immediately told the FBI my story in order to help catch the accomplice I had seen in Amsterdam. It soon became obvious that the FBI wasn’t interested in what I had to say, which upset me further. For one month the government refused to admit the existence of the man in the tan suit before changing course and admitting his existence in an ABC News article on January 22, 2010. That was the last time the government talked about this man. The video that would prove the truth of my account has never been released. I continue to be emotional upset that the video has not been released. The Dutch police, meanwhile, … also confirmed that Umar did not show his passport in Amsterdam which also meant that he didn’t go through security as both are in the same line in Amsterdam. It upsets me that the government refuses to admit this fact.
I became further saddened from this case, when Patrick Kennedy of the State Department during Congressional hearings, admitted that Umar was a known terrorist, was being followed, and the U.S. allowed him into the U.S. so that it could catch Umar’s accomplices. I was once again shocked and saddened when Michael Leiter of the National Counter terrorism Center admitted during these same hearings that intentionally letting terrorists into the U.S. was a frequent practice of the U.S. Government. I cannot fully explain my sadness, disappointment and fear when I realized that my government allowed an attack on me intentionally.
During this time, I questioned if my country intentionally put a known terrorist onto my flight with a live bomb. I had many sleepless nights over this issue. My answer came shortly thereafter. In late 2010, the FBI admitted to giving out intentionally defective bombs to the Portland Christmas Tree Bomber,the Wrigley Field Bomber and several others. Further, Mr. Chambers was quoted in the Free Press on January 11, 2011 when he indicated that the government’s own explosives experts had indicated that Umar’s bomb was impossibly defective. I wondered how that could be. Certainly, I thought, Al Qaeda wouldn’t go through all of the trouble to plan such an attack only to provide the terrorist with an impossibly defective bomb.
In closing I will just say that regardless of how the media and government try to shape the public perception of this case, I am convinced that Umar was given an intentionally defective bomb by a U.S. Government agent and placed on our flight without showing a passport or going through security, to stage a false terrorist attack to be used to implement various government policies.
The effect this matter has had on my life has been astounding and due to this case, I will never trust the government in any matter, ever.
Also in the news, on Friday a Moroccan man was accused of a suicide bombing mission targeting the U.S. Capitol building. He was, however, arrested before reaching his destination. Tony Cartalucci from PrisonPlanet.com picks up the rest of the story:
While initial reports portrayed the incident as a narrowly averted terrorist attack, CBS would report that a “high ranking source told CBS News the man was “never a real threat.”” The explosives the would-be bomber carried were provided to him by the FBI during what they described as a “lengthy and extensive operation.” The only contact the suspect had with “Al Qaeda” was with FBI officials posing as associates of the elusive, omnipresent, bearded terror conglomerate. The FBI, much like their MI5 counterparts in England, have a propensity for recruiting likely candidates from mosques they covertly run.
This is but the latest in a string of national terror plots carried out from start to finish by the FBI, who has made a business of approaching likely candidates and grooming them to carry out terror attacks.
And on a grander scale, also this week, actor Ed Asner told the Alex Jones show that Navy Seals told him military action against Iran is forthcoming, and will be preceded by a false flag attack, of which they were trying to warn the American people.
Now, as most people know, I don’t subscribe to Conspiracy Theories and I hate to pass on hypothetical scenarios from unnamed sources (even Navy Seals), but the warning is eerily reminiscent of the case of the USS Liberty, an acknowledged false flag operation (although egregiously suppressed by both media and govt to this day) during the six-day war in 1967. For those that don’t know the story, the Liberty was an obsolete reconnaissance ship in international waters in the Mediterranean that was attacked by Israeli jets in an attempt to blame the attack on Egypt and draw the U.S. into the war. Israel finally admitted it attacked the ship, but under a case of mistaken identity, yet had every intention of sinking it and killing all survivors, as evidenced by their machine gunning the life rafts of U.S. sailors attempting to flee the stricken vessel. The U.S., in on the deception targeted at the American public, refused to send naval support to the Liberty while under attack, as one-time presidential candidate John McCain’s father, admiral on a nearby carrier, called back the planes that could have fended off the Israeli jets, seemingly dooming any chance to save the Liberty. Thanks to a jury-rigged antenna, the heroic crew got off a distress signal that was responded to by a Russian vessel, causing the attack to be aborted, and saving the U.S. from a costly Middle-East war and potentially a greater war with the Soviets who were allies of Syria. I highly recommend the stirring account of the attack, the cover-up and the personal aftermath of Phillip Tourney, one of the sailors on the Liberty, in his book “What I Saw That Day”. Some have recently speculated that the outdated and soon to be mothballed USS Enterprise aircraft carrier will be a similar sitting duck for a false flag attack in the Straits of Hormuz.
For those still not convinced what first world governments are capable of doing to their own people, perhaps the most sickening insights come from a new video on the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, “A Noble Lie”. News reports from the day of the bombing, and eye witness testimony from first responders clearly show there were undetonated bombs inside the building that were removed, and that the structural damage could only have been caused by other bombs inside the building, not the truck bomb driven by Timothy McVeigh. In addition, several Federal Agents from the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) received notice not to go in the building that morning, and all were spared. So who knew? And who was involved? Recent research, documented in the film, traces the attack to another FBI/CIA terrorist recruitment and training organization operating out of Elohim City, OK, and that the bombing was most likely a terrorism sting operation that went very, very wrong. You’d think they’d have learned their lesson by now.
But of course, it’s now me that’s the terrorist for questioning government policies and activities and spreading all this hate-filled rumor-mongering, not your government that’s actually behind all the “terrorism”.
