The 9/11 Commission Report Revisited

It’s about time someone brought this issue up again.

Many Americans have forgotten about the 28 pages of the original 9/11 Commission Report that were redacted and declared classified before the report was released.

It is widely believed that those 28 pages included details of official Saudi involvement with Al Qaeda and possibly even signs of Saudi-Iranian cooperation in arranging for Hezbollah to provide training for Al Qaeda. (Those details of Hezbollah involvement in the 9/11 plot DID make it into other sections of the 9/11 report, but, like so much of the attacks, they have been forgotten as well.)

The article linked below discusses a new effort to have the 28 pages released to the public. It is imperative that we all set partisan politics aside and get behind this effort…

Cobalt-60 Radioactive Material Stolen in Mexico–UPDATE: Material Found

Cobalt-60_

The IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) reports that a truck carrying radioactive Cobalt-60 material used in medical procedures has been stolen in Tepojaco, Mexico, just north of Mexico City. The truck was transporting the material from Tijuana, which is over 1,400 miles away.

The danger is that Cobalt-60 could be used in a radiological explosive device, sometimes called a “dirty bomb,” which is designed to spread radioactivity across an area by way of a conventional explosion.

One cannot help but wonder if the thieves knew what they were taking. And if they did, what is their plan?

It could be criminals looking to resell. But Al Qaeda has had at least one operative arrested on the Mexican border several years ago and Hezbollah is known to have a presence in Mexico and other parts of Latin America.

UPDATE: The radioactive material, Cobalt-60, has been found abandoned by authorities in Mexico. It would appear that who ever stole the truck had no idea what they had taken. They most likely exposed themselves to dangerous radiation in the process, though their whereabouts are currently unknown.

Hezbollah Hails Obama’s Nuke Deal with the Ayatollahs

In case you had any doubts as to whether the “interim” agreement with Iran on nuclear technology that Barack Obama and John Kerry foisted on the world in the dead of night over the weekend was a terrible development, the world’s foremost Shia Jihadist terrorist organization has provided confirmation:

Lebanon’s Hezbollah on Monday hailed a nuclear deal between its patron Iran and world powers as “a major victory” for Tehran.

“What was achieved through this agreement is a major victory for Iran and to all the people of the region and it is a defeat for the enemies of these people,” Hezbollah said in a statement.

“(It is) a model victory and world class achievement which the Islamic state adds to its record which shines with victories and achievements.”

There are many people in America who don’t know just who Hezbollah is. For those of you who need a reminder, Hezbollah is the Jihadist terrorist wing of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. Their stated goal is to establish an Islamic state in the Middle East ruled by Shariah. They have a long record of killing Americans, stretching back to 1982 and 1983 with Islamikaze truck bomb attacks on the US embassy and US Marine Barracks in Beirut, Lebanon, a host of hostage-takings and murders of Americans in Beirut in the remainder of the 1980s and active involvement in the insurgency against US forces in Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom.

This is not the first time that Barack Obama has pleased Hezbollah. Not long ago, he allowed Ali Mussa Daqduq, a high-level Hezbollah operative responsible for torturing and killing several US Army soldiers, to go free in Iraq…

Now Hezbollah is once again jumping for joy over the actions of President Barack Obama…

Lest We Forget: 4 Years Ago Today

Nidal Malik Hasan. US Army Major who shot dozens at Fort Hood, Texas in November 2009, killing 13 and wounding 30

Nidal Malik Hasan. US Army Major who shot dozens at Fort Hood, Texas in November 2009, killing 13 and wounding 30

 

Four years ago today, Major Nidal Malik Hasan slaughtered fellow soldiers at Fort Hood in Texas while yelling “Allah u Akbar!”

There is absolutely no doubt that Major Hasan’s attack was an act of Jihad and that Hasan was acting as an enemy combatant who had infiltrated the US Army, yet the victims who were killed and wounded at Fort Hood have been denied Purple Heart awards by the Obama administration, who have arrogantly termed the attack to be “workplace violence,” as if Hasan had just gotten mad at his fellow workers and “snapped.”

It didn’t have to happen. Hasan should have already been at Gitmo when he carried out his attack. The FBI was aware that he had been in touch with Anwar al-Awlaki, leader of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, and that he had volunteered for jihad, both personally and with money.

Moreover, Hasan had delivered lectures to fellow Army officers parroting Jihadi doctrine. Political correctness had sickened the Army’s culture and no one dared speak out against a Muslim for fear of career suicide.

So, Hasan was free to carry out his murderous rampage 4 years ago today.

In the memory of those killed and wounded, be it resolved that:

1. The victims should receive the Purple Heart Award;

2. Political correctness, a term invented by the Chinese communist party, should be thrown to the trash bin of history;

3. The US military, intelligence and law enforcement communities must come to grips with the fact that terrorism like this is in fact Jihad and is based on Islamic doctrine dating all the way back to 610 AD.

Lest we forget. May God bless the souls of the dead and help heal the wounded and comfort the surviving family members.

Never again!

 

Possibly the best article written so far on Obama’s cover up of the Jihadist threat…from Caroline Glick

When failure carries no cost

Terror Alert Sign of Resurgent Al Qaeda

The terror alerts issued by the US State Department, Interpol and the foreign offices of Great Britain, France and Germany should worry Westerners very much.

US embassy in Sanaa, Yemen

US embassy in Sanaa, Yemen

 

If there is indeed specific information about a credible threat that closed down US embassies in 22 nations, grounded 6 international airline flights (so far) and resulted in the most serious global travel advisory put out by the US State Department in several years (covering an entire month) then it is an indication that Al Qaeda is not only NOT “on the run,” but is evidently more prolific than ever in terms of its reach.

Under such circumstances, it’s not a question of “if” Western targets will be struck again, but “when.”

We have been lied to about the magnitude and scope of the Jihadist terrorist threat. That is the unmistakable conclusion.

Some cynics and skeptics seem to think that the whole issue has been contrived by the Obama administration for political purposes, but this makes no sense at all.

Obama has repeatedly declared victory over Al Qaeda. He essentially declared that the killing of Osama Bin Laden placed the terrorist organization on the ropes and all but announced an end to the war on terror, complete with a re-orientation of the US military toward a significantly smaller force primarily focused on the Asia-Pacific region.

Moreover, his policy of drone strikes was supposed to have decimated Al Qaeda’s leadership structure.

Apparently none of what Obama told us was correct.

So for Obama now to use that same terrorist threat to improve his political fortunes makes no sense at all.

Think about it: So when Obama repeatedly says Al Qaeda is on the run and for all practical purposes defeated—-it’s regarded as propaganda for the masses. And then when the State Dept issues a global travel advisory and closes 22 embassies because of a threat from Al Qaeda, that’s also propaganda for those same masses?

It doesn’t add up.  I think Obama lied about Al Qaeda in the first place. It was in his best interests to remove a major national security threat from the public sphere and, with the aid of a compliant media, he successfully did so. But it was never anything more than words on paper and talk in pretty speeches.

Al Qaeda isn’t on the run. They aren’t defeated. And this terror alert, unfortunately, isn’t phony.

The alert coincides with the end of Ramadan, a holy month in Islam in which America has often restrained itself in fighting Islamic enemies, but during which Jihadists have actually escalated their attacks. The closure of the embassies comes on the Ramadan “Night of Power.” Without getting into obnoxious detail about Islamic doctrine, all you really need to know about the “Night of Power” is that it was the day on which the USS Cole was attacked in Aden harbor in Yemen in 2000. And this is the same week during which the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in east Africa were bombed back in 1998.

So, when intelligence emerges suggesting that US targets will come under attack at this time, it is something to take seriously, especially given the fact that Al Qaeda leader Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri released a statement in the past week instructing Al Qaeda’s followers to attack US targets now.

Perhaps the most significant evidence that this terror alert should be taken seriously comes from the fact that France, Germany and Great Britain have all shut their embassies in Yemen down as well and issued travel advisories to their citizens. Unless they’re in on some scheme to help Obama’s approval rating, my guess is there is a real threat out there.

Al Qaeda is real, folks. They’ve been real for decades now and they’re deadly. To assume otherwise is suicidal. To make matters worse, there is evidence to indicate that they are now as capable as they have been at any time since 1998.

Consider the fact that in the past month there have been large-scale prison breakouts in nine Islamic nations, including Iraq, Libya, Pakistan and Yemen. The timing and scale of these breakouts in which mostly Jihadi fighters made their escapes, is unprecedented. Interpol suspects Al Qaeda involvement and coordination and has issued an advisory to that effect. On 22 July, 500 Jihadis, including senior level Al Qaeda operatives, escaped from Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. Five days later, on 27 July, 1100 inmates escaped from a prison near Benghazi, Libya. And four days after that, on 31 July, the Taliban led a breakout from a prison in Pakistan in which an unknown number of Jihadis escaped.

These operations were almost certainly orchestrated and coordinated, most probably with help from the inside in each country. This was a massive undertaking that demonstrates Al Qaeda’s military as well as political power in the Islamic world. With so many Jihadis back on the loose, Westerners better brace themselves.

 

 

 

 

TWA 800 Revisited

0624_twa-reconstruction

This week a new documentary was released on the destruction of TWA Flight 800 17 years ago.

When the final official explanation of the cause of TWA 800′s destruction came out, like most Americans, I accepted it and had no reason to be skeptical, largely because I wasn’t paying particularly close attention.

The new documentary, simply titled TWA Flight 800, combined with another excellent documentary released in 2001 (see below), has made me think twice.

I am not one to subscribe to conspiracy theories and I don’t know that the conclusions reached by the producers is correct (I don’t understand the 3 missile theory illustrated in the documentary), but I do think there are inconsistencies and questionable aspects of the Clinton Administration’s explanation and the methodology employed in the investigation.

The reason this latest documentary is credible and so newsworthy is because members of the original investigation team have come forward to call for re-opening the investigation.

Recent FOIA requests have revealed a few confusing details that were previously unknown as well.

It is certainly not beyond the realm of possibility that our Jihadist enemies, who we know were armed with Stinger missiles at the time, attacked us in July 1996, 5 years before 9/11. I’m not ready to declare that to be the case, but there are enough troublesome holes in the official explanation of the destruction of TWA 800 to warrant a more thorough, independent analysis.

Rather than use the FBI, CIA, NTSB and FAA to conduct the investigation, I believe that the investigation should be conducted under the auspices of NASA and the Department of Defense, with a blue ribbon panel of investigators from both the public and private sector. In other words, I believe TWA 800 warrants an independent commission similar to the 9/11 Commission in the wake of the September 11th terrorist attacks.

Here are a few questions and suspicious items that remain:

• NO planes grounded afterwards for the fuel tank ‘issue’…

Once it was decided that the cause of the destruction of TWA 800 was faulty wiring in the center wing fuel tank, no order was ever issued grounding the other, numerous 747s identical to TWA 800. In fact, no order was ever issued to even inspect the wiring in the center fuel tanks of 747s. All the FAA did was issue a “rule change:”

“The FAA does not believe detailed in-tank inspections of the FQIS components would be effective because the condition of in-tank component or wiring contamination and damage can be difficult to detect while the parts are installed. The agency believes the best approach at this time is to replace the current in-tank FQIS components with new parts, including replacement of silver-plated copper wires with nickel-plated wires.

The FAA is proposing that operators remove and replace FQIS components within 20 years from the date the airplane was manufactured, or within 24 months of publication of the final rule, whichever is later. Nickel-plated wire is much more resistant to corrosion in the presence of sulfur.”

Note the total lack of a sense of urgency surrounding the suspect device claimed to be responsible for the most deadly air disaster in US history. The FAA basically said: “Replace the part when it’s convenient, or next time you have the chance.”

This doesn’t seem like what should be done in the wake of the destruction of a jumbo jet with hundreds of fatalities.

• NO other 747 incident like this before or since.

It is crucial to understand that no other 747, before or since, experienced a problem with the wiring in the center fuel tank. It is also crucial to understand that the official explanation is nothing but a theory, because the federal government was never able to duplicate the circumstances that it said created the explosion.

• Noted eye-witnesses, dismissed outright and never called to testify

 Numerous eye-witnesses reported seeing the same basic thing. Some were even trained military veterans and professional pilots. Nevertheless, they were dismissed and ignored and then misquoted by Clinton-era bureaucrats.

• The ‘splatter pattern’ on the outside of the center fuel tank, and the fact that the seat damage pattern is different from the seat occupant damage pattern are 2 of the key pieces of evidence that support an external explosion.

You must watch the new documentary to understand this revelation, which was not known in 2001 when the first documentary was produced.

The newly available evidence presented in the new documentary (as well as review of the other evidence) is damning and refutes the very premise that there ever was a responsible investigation in the first place.

That leaves the obvious question: if there was a cover-up, why? The most plausible explanation that I have seen is that the Clinton administration may have exerted immense command influence on the investigation to steer it away from pursuing TWA 800 as a terrorist attack. In July 1996, when TWA 800 blew up, Clinton led Senator Bob Dole in the polls by a wide margin. The last thing Clinton needed or wanted was a reported foreign terrorist attack so close to the election. This would not have been the first time Clinton’s team attempted to interfere in such an investigation. There are credible reports that the Clinton administration tried to influence the investigation into the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Moreover, as detailed in the book, The Third Terrorist, the Clinton administration worked to suppress evidence in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.

I urge readers to watch the documentary linked below, as well as the older documentary embedded here, and see if you think unanswered questions remain.

The new TWA Flight 800 documentary is available for free by opening a trial with Epix network. All that requires is your zip code and an email address. I did it and have received no spam at all. If you’re nervous, open a new hotmail account and use that address.

It is well worth your time to look at this film:

In addition to the new documentary, I highly recommend another documentary that was produced in 2001: Silenced: TWA 800 and the Subversion of Justice. Here it is:

 

Just who ARE America’s “Domestic” Terrorists???

There has been much written and commented on in the media about the threat from “domestic” terrorism in recent years.

At Terror Trends Bulletin, we agree that there is indeed a serious threat from domestic terrorists.

But unlike the Leftist media, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano or the rest of Team Obama, we don’t see the threat of domestic terrorism coming from veterans, Tea Party members or those committed to preserving our 2nd amendment rights.

No, an objective analysis of the situation indicates that the domestic terrorist threat looks and sounds much like the foreign terrorist threat.

In other words, the domestic terrorist threat is primarily a threat from Jihad.

Here is a list of people involved in terror crimes and plots here in the USA in recent years. Each person on this list, without exception, is Muslim. We don’t take any particular glee in that. You can call us bigoted or racist for pointing it out if you want, but that doesn’t change the facts. Hardly a month has gone by over the past 4 years in which a Muslim somewhere in America wasn’t implicated in a plot to commit an act of Jihad. In some cases, they were unfortunately successful. In some instances, terrorists on this list are now dead (which is a good thing as far as we’re concerned).

The list is by no means exhaustive; it wasn’t meant to be. It’s merely a list of 86 domestic jihadis we were able to cobble together from various law enforcement and media sources in about 45 minutes’ time. Anyone can do a search on the internet for these names and see the back story on each one. Our guess is that most people had no idea that the US had caught 86 domestic jihadis in recent years. That is primarily due to the fact that the news media in this country downplays the threat from jihad. (NOTE: If we have caught 86, how many are still out there across America?)

The threat from terrorism domestically here in the US is primarily a threat from Jihad. And that’s a fact.

SAVAGES!!!

Rest in Peace: Private Lee Rigby

Rest in Peace: Private Lee Rigby

As if we needed any more evidence, two Muslims of Nigerian descent proved yet again that the Islamic doctrine of Jihad is nothing but savagery yesterday when they murdered a British soldier in broad daylight on a London street by running him down with a car and then beheading him with butcher knives.

British Army Private Lee Rigby (pictured) was canvassing for an organization called Help for Heroes when he was attacked in what was clearly a planned, targeted assault.

One of the barbarians who murdered Private Rigby then posed for camera phones and issued a statement about the attack. Unfortunately, media worldwide has seen fit to edit the video by excluding the religious basis for the attack. Here is the full, unedited, uncensored statement:

http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=d4e_1369268286

Note that Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch has a thorough analysis of the incident and the media manipulation and deception that is ongoing:

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/05/uk-jihad-murderer-there-are-many-many-ayah-throughout-the-koran-that-says-we-must-fight-them-as-they.html

Reports also indicate that as the Jihadist savages were murdering Private Murphy they were chanting “Allah Akbar,” just as Major Nidal Hassan did at Fort Hood when he murdered US soldiers.

By editing out the reference to the Koran and leaving in the rest of the statement, the media almost tries to leave the impression that this incident was motivated by anti-government sentiment. This cover up–which includes Fox News by the way–must stop if we are ever going to deal with the war that is being waged against us.

This raw video contains the complete statement from the savage.

I can’t find the words to express my feelings on this horrible attack. It shows that we are in a true clash of civilizations, this war that has been thrust upon us by the Jihadists. This is the first war in which our warriors have been targeted by our own citizens in the West when they return from the foreign war zone: Fort Hood, Private Andy Long in Little Rock and now this horrible attack. WHEN WILL WE WAKE UP???

UPDATE: One of the attackers, the one who made the statement for the video cameras, has been identified: his name is Michael Adebolajo. He is of Nigerian descent but he was born in Britain.

Adebolajo is evidently a convert to Islam and he learned about beheading by going to a mosque in Britain, where an Imam named Omar Bakri preached about it. Bakri was deported from the UK but has praised Adebolajo in the wake of the savage attack. Barbarism  and savagery evidently has become an epidemic in the UK Islamic community:
