FBI foils its own van bomb plot in Oregon

Well, Happy Thanksgiving past. Here we go with still another teenager, 19-year old Mohamed Osman Mohamud, trying to twice detonate a white van bomb last Friday night and failing, at the lighting of a Christmas tree event at Portland Oregon’s Pioneer Courthouse square. Well, have a merry, folks. Santa’s on the way!

Pioneer Courthouse square

According to the Washington Post, “Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square [is] known locally as the city’s ‘living room’ . . . a tree-lined open plaza in the heart of downtown that hosts more than 300 events each year,” sort of like a smaller Times Square. But, if it bombed in New York, it’ll bomb anywhere.

The reason: Mohamed Osman Mohamud, unlike the shoe-bomber, the underwear bomber and car bomber, had a blasting cap which could be triggered remotely by a cell-phone. Did he dial the wrong number? No. But the bomb didn’t go off after two tries because the FBI had switched the live explosives used in a pre-disaster rehearsal to take out the crowd and switched to six 55-gallon drums of inert material with detonation cord, blasting caps and a gallon of diesel fuel at the real event, six hours later. The real big boom in Mohamud’s and FBI’s eyes was saved for their play book only.

The WP reported that Mohamed Osman Mohamud smiled and said of the original device that it was “beautiful” when it blew. Frankly, I don’t know who’s more demented, them or him. No, I do know: them. FBI undercover agents had bad been playing patsy with Mohamud since June of 2010, “claiming they were acting as accomplices of a supposed Pakistani terrorist that Mohamed had been in contact with as early as 2008,” The Activist Post tells us. The big difference is, “the FBI actually supplied him with a bomb.” If this isn’t entrapment, what is? There is also a good summary of similar events in the Activist Post (so it’s not just me seeing this), and a good film clip summary.

It is reminiscent of four cultivated patsies in Newburgh, New York, and others whom I wrote about on Oct. 20, Four men railroaded in plot to bomb synagogues. Only these dudes weren’t even Muslims, but ex-cons, hapless and unemployed. The FBI mole who recruited them was a Muslim, or so they say. Check out this article for a good summary of similar events, including the WTC 1993 car bomb explosion.

In that event, including blind Sheik Raman and his boyz, “the FBI plant[ed] a mole in their midst, 46-year old Emad Salem, ex-Egyptian Army officer . . . offering to provide 1,300 pounds of blasting powder for the van-bomb to be planted in the basement. At some point, Salem tells the FBI, he can supply just plain powder to the Sheik, nobody will get hurt, and they can still bust the Sheik for conspiring to bomb the WTC. But the FBI makes it happen and asks for the hot sauce, and boom, there goes the van-bomb in the basement, BABOOM, six dead, 1,000 injured. Read the New York Times story about it here or above, at WhatReallyHappened.”

Interestingly, Alex Jones comments at the end of the Activist Post film clip that the FBI did not drive the explosive van up against the main support column in Tower1’s basement in 1993, which could have taken down the building. Instead, they left the van 10 to 20 feet away to keep the death toll down. After all, they were just practicing for the big blowout on 9/11 when they went real and live and totally vicious with whomever their partners were to kill Americans and demonize Muslims.

Gee, could the Mossad have been involved with this? Or the Saudis who gave up 15 out of 19 faces to be blamed, or even Pakistan, who sent General Mahmoud, head of their Intelligence Service to the White House a day before it happened? Mahmoud is purported to have wired $100,000 to Mohammad Atta that evening, pay day for the patsies.

Mohamed Osman Mohamud

Nevertheless, returning to Mohamed Osman Mohamud, the WP adds some color, telling us “as he was taken away . . . [he] kicked and screamed ‘Allahu Akbar!,’ Arabic for ‘God is great.’” WP also tells us, Mohamud [was] a Somali-born naturalized US Citizen and former Oregon State University student,” no dummy you would think, yet “expected to appear in federal court Monday. He faces up to life in prison if convicted of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction.”

Now hold on: the previous WP paragraph ended with “The bomb was an elaborate dud, assembled by FBI technicians.” What court are they going to for their “entrapment arraignment,” fear-mongering, and misuse of US taxpayer money?

Unfortunately, as I watch the Joe the Plumber, man-at-the-airport interviews, from New York to Seattle, a good eight out of 10 people say, “Well, it makes me feel more secure. These guys (the FBI?) are working to protect us. And they’re doing a good job.” They’re doing a great job of conning the hell out of you, setting up these patsies, inflating their importance as well as the TSA’s plus the Homeland Security Department’s.

Meanwhile, I’m getting tired of writing “exposes” of our super-serious blowhards in Intel-land. Why don’t Americans wake up? A 13-year old should be able to see through it, and by this time, see through 9/11 as an equally destructive false flag event that has landed us in at least three fateful wars, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, and soon-to-be Yemen. Our wealth and blood has been squandered as well as the lives of millions of Iraqis, thousands of Americans, and untold numbers of Afghans and Pakistanis.

Petraeus continues to betray us, with his two-prong peace plan. It’s just more crap to squander life and wealth away and guarantee him and his Pentagon buddies fat retirement plans and payola from the defense industries. Eisenhower must be turning over in his grave, after warning us in his parting speech to beware the military-industrial complex. The old warrior, general of the armies and president knew, and nobody since has known, enough to stop the rot.

P.S. If you’re looking for further commentary on patsy Victor Bought, Daniel Estulin has conducted his own 22-page interview with former Russian nuclear officer, Dimitri Khalezov on the subject. Check this out for patsy fun and games.
