Americans Getting Sick And Tired Of TSA: Solution: Have Another Fake Underwear Bomber Incident!

Personally, in my travels into the United States I have not had the chance to experience the fabulous groping done by the TSA agents at American airports, or have I had to experience the fabulous cancer causing radiation of the full body scanners.  However, many of my friends and colleagues have had the indignity of both the TSA groping and the body scanners in their travels, and have said they are absolutely horrendous.   It is to the point now that many people are avoiding travel to the United States all together, and now even the American public has had enough of these violations of personal dignity and are calling for the elimination of the TSA all together.

Many of us still remember the fraudulent Detroit Bombing incident of December 2009, where a "terrorist" supposedly brought a "bomb"onto commercial aircraft in his underwear. That so called "terrorist attack" has been proven to be a totally laughable fraud.  But it worked wonders on a dumbed down American public by  again striking fear of phony terrorist attacks on civilian aircraft. That fear allowed the implementation of the horrendous airport security measures that Americans have come to abhor.  

Now almost 2.5 years since that fraudulent Detroit underwear bomber attack, it seems that the US Government is now trying to strike fear back into the American public with another phony and laughable underwear bomber threat!  According to this report, from Yahoo news, at news.yahoo.com, it appears that the US CIA has just "thwarted" a new, and very phony, "Al-Qaeda" underwear bomb threat!   First, here is that Yahoo News report for everyone to see for themselves... I have my own comments to follow:



US: CIA thwarts new al-Qaida underwear bomb plot


WASHINGTON (AP) — The CIA thwarted an ambitious plot by al-Qaida's affiliate in Yemen to destroy a U.S.-bound airliner using a bomb with a sophisticated new design around the one-year anniversary of the killing of Osama bin Laden, The Associated Press has learned.

The plot involved an upgrade of the underwear bomb that failed to detonate aboard a jetliner over Detroit on Christmas 2009. This new bomb was also designed to be used in a passenger's underwear, but this time al-Qaida developed a more refined detonation system, U.S. officials said.

The FBI is examining the latest bomb to see whether it could have passed through airport security and brought down an airplane, officials said. They said the device did not contain metal, meaning it probably could have passed through an airport metal detector. But it was not clear whether new body scanners used in many airports would have detected it.

There were no immediate plans to change security procedures at U.S. airports.

The would-be suicide bomber, based in Yemen, had not yet picked a target or bought a plane ticket when the CIA stepped in and seized the bomb, officials said. It's not immediately clear what happened to the alleged bomber.

White House spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said President Barack Obama learned about the plot in April and was assured the device posed no threat to the public.

"The president thanks all intelligence and counterterrorism professionals involved for their outstanding work and for serving with the extraordinary skill and commitment that their enormous responsibilities demand," Hayden said.

The operation unfolded even as the White House and Department of Homeland Security assured the American public that they knew of no al-Qaida plots against the U.S. around the anniversary of bin Laden's death. The operation was carried out over the past few weeks, officials said.

"We have no credible information that terrorist organizations, including al-Qaida, are plotting attacks in the U.S. to coincide with the anniversary of bin Laden's death," White House press secretary Jay Carney said on April 26.

On May 1, the Department of Homeland Security said, "We have no indication of any specific, credible threats or plots against the U.S. tied to the one-year anniversary of bin Laden's death."

The White House did not explain those statements Monday.

The AP learned about the thwarted plot last week but agreed to White House and CIA requests not to publish it immediately because the sensitive intelligence operation was still under way. Once officials said those concerns were allayed, the AP decided to disclose the plot Monday despite requests from the Obama administration to wait for an official announcement Tuesday.

The FBI and Department of Homeland Security acknowledged the existence of the bomb late Monday, but there were no immediate plans to adjust security procedures at airports. Other officials, who were briefed on the operation, insisted on anonymity to discuss details of the plot, many of which the U.S. has not officially acknowledged.

"The device never presented a threat to public safety, and the U.S. government is working closely with international partners to address associated concerns with the device," the FBI said in a statement.
It's not clear who built the bomb, but, because of its sophistication and its similarity to the Christmas bomb, counterterrorism officials suspected it was the work of master bomb maker Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri or one of his protégées. Al-Asiri constructed the first underwear bomb and two others that al-Qaida built into printer cartridges and shipped to the U.S. on cargo planes in 2010.

Both of those bombs used a powerful industrial explosive. Both were nearly successful.

The operation is an intelligence victory for the United States and a reminder of al-Qaida's ambitions, despite the death of bin Laden and other senior leaders. Because of instability in the Yemeni government, the terrorist group's branch there has gained territory and strength. It has set up terrorist camps and, in some areas, even operates as a de facto government.

But along with the gains there also have been losses. The group has suffered significant setbacks as the CIA and the U.S. military focus more on Yemen. On Sunday, Fahd al-Quso, a senior al-Qaida leader, was hit by a missile as he stepped out of his vehicle along with another operative in the southern Shabwa province of Yemen.

Al-Quso, 37, was on the FBI's most wanted list, with a $5 million reward for information leading to his capture. He was indicted in the U.S. for his role in the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole in the harbor of Aden, Yemen, in which 17 American sailors were killed and 39 injured.

Al-Quso was believed to have replaced Anwar al-Awlaki as the group's head of external operations.

Al-Awlaki was killed in a U.S. airstrike last year.

NTS Notes:  This is absolutely ridiculous and I honestly cannot understand how anyone in America cannot see through this outright lie for themselves.

It appears that this may be an act of desperation to somehow give some credibility to the entire TSA itself.   If the American public is stupid enough to fall for this one, then they deserve what they get, which will be a permanent TSA presence in all American airports, and even a possible expansion of the TSA to all public facilities all across the United States itself.

We must also not forget that the entire Al Qaeda organization itself is a massive fraud.  It is a creation of both the CIA and Mossad for the phony war on terror, and has worked wonders in striking fear psychologically in the American public.

Bottom line is this is an absolute lie and nothing more than a propaganda stunt to keep the American public in a constant state of fear, and to keep the phony war on terror going.   Lets not be fooled again...

More to come
