US Hatched Terror Plots!-Posted on Before It’s News-By ActivistPost (Reporter)-On May 3, 2013:

“Terrorists “R” us. Washington bears full responsibility. Numerous schemes are planned. Some are alleged and foiled. Others involve violent plots. Media scoundrels convict innocent people in the court of public opinion.

Later they’re wrongfully accused and prosecuted. Juries are intimidated to convict. Imprisonment follows. Culprits remain free. One scheme leads to others. Numerous political prisoners fill America’s gulag.

Even The New York Times was candid. At least party so. Most often it’s part of the guilt by accusation chorus. On April 28, 2012, it headlined “Terrorist Plots, Hatched by the FBI,” saying:

“THE United States has been narrowly saved from lethal terrorist plots in recent years — or so it has seemed.”

Dozens were foiled just in time.

Among others, they include:

  • a fake shoe bomber;
  • fake underwear bomber;
  • fake Times Square bomber;
  • an earlier one there;
  • fake shampoo bombers;
  • fake Al Qaeda woman planning fake mass casualty attacks on New York landmarks;
  • fake Oregon bomber;
  • fake armed forces recruiting station bomber;
  • fake synagogue bombers;
  • fake Chicago Sears Tower bombers;
  • fake FBI and other building bombers;
  • fake National Guard, Fort Dix and Quantico marine base attackers;
  • fake 9/11 bombers; 
  • fake Boston bombers; and numerous others. 

At issue is enlisting public support for America’s fake war on terror and real ones that follow. FBI operatives are involved. Their “undercover agents and informers (pose) as terrorists,” said The Times.

They entrap innocent victims. They induce, influence or provoke plots that wouldn’t be hatched otherwise. They aid, abet and facilitate them.

Familiar storylines repeat. Many sound more like bad film plots than real ones. Orchestrated stings are used.

US Legal.com calls them “deceptive operation(s) designed to nab criminals. Generally, a law enforcement officer or cooperative member of the public plays a role as criminal partner or potential victim and goes along with a suspect’s actions to gather evidence of the suspect’s wrongdoing.”

They’re derived from the practice of using undercover cops to catch criminals. It means “set(ting) a trap to catch a crook.”

“Carefully orchestrated sting operations usually hold up in court,” said The Times. Post-9/11, undercover FBI operations became commonplace.

According to ACLU lawyer Mike German:

Prior to 9/11, it would be very unusual for the FBI to present a crime opportunity that wasn’t in the scope of the activities that a person was already involved in.

Most terror plots are fake. Some are real. Nearly always terrorists “R” us. False flags describe them. Official reports about Oklahoma City’s Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building Bombing left unsaid what happened.

Oklahoma City bombing.org‘s Kevin Caruso described it as follows:

On April 19, 1995, at 9:02 am local time, a massive truck bomb exploded in front of the (building), killing 168 people (including 19 children) and injuring over 800.

The building was heavily damaged. So were more than 300 others within a sixteen-block radius. Dozens of cars were destroyed or damaged. The blast was heard up to 30 miles away.

Officials said a rented Ryder truck with around 5,000 pounds of explosives caused it. Within 90 minutes of the incident, Timothy McVeigh was arrested. He was accused of a firearms offense. He spent two days in jail. He then faced bombing charges.

On May 10, Terry Nichols, his alleged accomplice, was apprehended in Kansas. On June 11, 2001, McVeigh was executed. Nichols received life in prison.

Prosecutors claimed they timed the attack to coincide with the second anniversary of the Waco Mount Carmel Center siege. It began on February 28, 1993. On April 19, it ended in immolation.

It killed 76 Branch Davidians. It was state-sponsored terrorism. Attorney General Janet Reno approved it. No one was held accountable.

Post-Oklahoma City analysis was conducted by accredited explosives experts and professional demolition contractors. They determined that high-grade military explosives and detonators were internally placed.

Elgin Air Force Base’s Armament Wright Laboratory studied the incident. No single truck bomb caused it. Former director/explosives and ordnance expert/(Ret.) Brig. General Benton K. Partinwas in charge.

He determined that no single truck bomb caused it. The ANFO truck bomb couldn’t cause steel-reinforced concrete columns to collapse. According to Partin:

The total incompatibility with a single truck bomb lies in the fact that either some of the columns collapsed that should not have collapsed or some of (them) are still standing that should have collapsed and did not. This is a classic cover-up of immense proportions. 

To cause the damage pattern that occurred to the Murrah building, there would have to have been demolition charges at several supporting column bases, at locations not accessible from the street, to supplement the truck bomb damage. 

Indeed, a careful examination of photographs showing the collapsed column bases reveal a failure mode produced by demolition charges and not by a blast from the truck bomb.

Additional forensic evidence showed other devices were involved. Official reports suppressed what happened. Media scoundrels regurgitated their lies. Doing so subverted truth.

In 1993, Ralph Schoenman asked “Who Bombed the US World Trade Center?” FBI investigators were heading for New York when it happened. “Thousands of people and dozens of agencies here and abroad” got involved.

The alleged culprit was named before “the ink (was) dry on the (official) press release….” Israel had advance knowledge. In 1990, FBI operatives had “advance plans and full documentation of where to find everyone and everything….”

Clinton officials gave Al Qaeda support. Ramzi Yousef and five other Muslims were convicted.

So was Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman (“the Blind Sheikh”) wrongfully on charges of seditious conspiracy, solicitation of murder, solicitation of an attack on American military installations, conspiracy to commit murder, and conspiracy to bomb in connection with the 1993 World Trade Center attack.

His prosecution followed the bombing investigation. He was sentenced to life in prison.

He was a former CIA asset. He was involved in Clinton’s Balkan wars. He recruited and armed Mujahideen fighters for Bosnia.

Today they’re called Al Qaeda. The CIA created them. They’re US assets. They’re used strategically as enemies and allies.

9/11 is the Big Lie of our time. The official story doesn’t wash. Irrefutable facts exposed it. They separated myth from reality. Growing numbers worldwide understand. Perhaps one day everyone will.

In his book titled 9/11 Ten Years Later: When State Crimes Against Democracy Succeed, David Ray Griffin said:

Getting the 9/11 lie exposed is essential. One obvious reason is simple justice.

“There also needs to be justice in the sense of punishment for those who engineered this crime.” They include top government, military and CIA officials.

Perhaps they consider themselves patriots. They committed “murder and treason.”

“Many lines of evidence show that 9/11 was an inside job.” Exposing it is vital “for the sake of preventing further crimes against democracy.”

State-sponsored terrorism is policy. Repressive laws target dissent. Imperial wars follow. Fictitious enemies at home and abroad justify them.

Unchallenged global dominance matters most. Humanity may not survive the next onslaught. The threat’s too grave to ignore. Dismissing it comes at our own risk.

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

Above image credit: AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin, Pool, File

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”


Above: Border Patrol officers escort Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and Gov. Jan Brewer through the department’s Nogales processing facility for immigrant children. (Photo courtesy Barry Bahler/Department of Homeland Security)

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
