    U.K.: Plot to bomb U.S.-bound planes foiled
    Arrests made in plot to smuggle explosives aboard aircraft, police say

    MSNBC News Services
    Updated: 31 minutes ago

    LONDON - British authorities thwarted a terrorist plot to blow up several aircraft mid-flight between the United States and Britain using explosives smuggled in hand luggage, officials said Thursday.


Well, I think we have a tendency to respond by counterattacking large populations of people who have nothing to do with terrorism. I think that our responses to terrorism have been misdirected and ineffective, and have only served to make a bad situation worse by destroying any sympathy the world had for us.

So, yeah, I think we need to re-think things - to respond, but to respond judiciously.

Well, I'm a bit concerned as I will be flying to Heathrow next Wednesday and back to Boston three weeks later.

What this will mean to me will be a longer checking in time and having to rethink what goes where in my luggage. I usually carry toiletries in cabin baggage to allow for lost bags but that will be a no no this time. However, just in case this is a the real deal I would rather have security tightened up.

It's possible that this is a diversion for other news that the UK government wants to bury. Same seems to happen in the USA - it's just that Bird Flu gets yet another airing. However, the story of the little boy who cried wolf is still valid.

Let me see if understand aright the jist of this thing: if the auhorities act as if there is a threat, they are doing it for some ulterior motive; if the thing threatened doesn't happen, perhaps even because of such action, that just proves there wasn't a threat. On the other hand, if the authorities act not, and the threat becomes reality, then the authorities were derelict in their duty. Gee, that's a real win/win for them.

Assuming a real threat a ban on those items being carried on board does not address lethal stuff in the belly of the plane. Look at Lockerbie.

I still think the day will/should come when passengers and their belongings will fly in separate planes. I can imagine the chaos while the logistics of reunion are being determined and enacted but that single act would remove almost all of the opportunity and all of the motivation. No terrorist organization is going to brag about blowing up luggage.

Here's the official Word from the TSA website:

Raised Threat Levels:

The U.S. threat level is raised to High, or Orange, for all commercial aviation operating in the United States, including international flights. Flights from the United States to the United Kingdom are also Orange.The U.S. threat level is raised to Severe, or Red, for all commercial flights flying from the United Kingdom to the United States.

The U.S. threat level is raised to High, or Orange, for all commercial aviation operating in the United States, including international flights. Flights from the United States to the United Kingdom are also Orange.

Increased Aviation Screening Procedures:

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is implementing a series of security measures, some visible and some not visible, to ensure the security of the traveling public and the nation's transportation system.

TSA is immediately implementing the following changes to airport screening procedures:

NO LIQUIDS OR GELS OF ANY KIND WILL BE PERMITTED IN CARRY-ON BAGGAGE.

SUCH ITEMS MUST BE IN CHECKED BAGGAGE. This includes all beverages, shampoo, suntan lotion, creams, tooth paste, hair gel, and other items of similar consistency.

Exceptions: Baby formula and medicines, which must be presented for inspection at the checkpoint.

Beverages purchased in the boarding area, beyond the checkpoint, must be consumed before boarding because they will not be permitted onboard the aircraft.

Passengers traveling from the United Kingdom to the United States will be subject to a more extensive screening process.

These measures will be constantly evaluated and updated as circumstances warrant.

How every passenger can assist in security:

    * Pack lightly, without clutter, to facilitate easier screening.
    * Arrive earlier than usual at the airport.
    * Cooperate with TSA personnel at checkpoints and with airline personnel at all gates.
    * Be attentive and vigilant to any suspicious activity and report it to authorities.

Increased Border Protection Procedures:

U.S. Customs and Border Protection will increase enforcement efforts in international arrival areas including the use of advanced targeting tools, special response teams including baggage and aircraft search teams, baggage x-ray equipment, specially-trained canine units, and explosive detection technology.

DHS has also mandated that all flights from the United Kingdom transmit passenger manifest information for intensive screening prior to departure from the gate. In addition, passengers on these flights and all other international flights will be subject to heightened inspection upon arrival in the United States.


Apparently it's no carry-on bags AT ALL in the UK.

The whole flying focus is a farce. A diversion. You can fly a private plane in and out of US airports without any harrassment from "security." That's what Rush Limbaugh was so upset about when he got popped for drugs again a couple months ago. He said, "You never check private planes."

It's a scam, folks. Airports are "international" and not subject to the rules that govern your town. So, military can strut around with automatic weapons and do cavity searches on you at will. But only in airports. They just focus media attn on airports to get you acclimated to what's expected of you in the coming police state. You see film of cringing passengers, hear the officials use a variation of the word "terror" in every other sentence, and see the "military presence." You're being brainwashed.

Your govts are playing you, bongoheads. When the next attack comes, think Blair. Think Queen Elizabeth Saxe-Coburg. Think Cheney & Bush.

I've jusr spoken to my daughter in the Uk who has told me that passengers are not allowed to take on any cabin baggage, apart from essential medicines, baby items (which must be tasted by the carrier at the checkpoint) and wallets and change purses. There are major delays at UK airports while security checks are being carried out.

Timw will tell whether this is a false alarm. At some time the people being held will either have to be charged or released and, in the UK, this is likely to be made public fairly fast.

Well, on a somewhat somber note, aren't the terrorists 'due' to show that they can bring something off rather than simply kill their own people?

On an even more somber note was the reference in England to 'homegrown'.

Supermarket shelves empty in a matter of hours when a hurricane or major storm is predicted. After the 911 attacks, there was no milk or bread to be had in my neighborhood for two days.

Imagine even the scare of poisoned food?
Anyone remember Israel oranges injected with poison or cranberries coated in poisonous insecticide?

I look to the food supply for the next attack. The constant TV Public Service messages suggesting that I "pick up a few extra cans of food to stock up in case of emergency" make me think that the Powers That Be expect the same.

Meantime, as on September 12, 2001, it is safer to fly now than it was two days ago.

It is TOTALLY stupid to just make everyone give up the standard items of everyday comfort. I just saw a middle-aged woman forced to throw away a couple hundred dollars worth of cosmetics ....even tootpaste!

This solves **NOTHING**....I'm sorry, but what is needed is the dreaded...*stereotyped, targeted, profiled enforcement*

"Oh HORRORS! How very non-P.C. of you, Bill D!"

yep...indeed, and it is with great reluctance that I say that, but for the last 5 years, every case I have seen of any attempts at terrorism has been from a very narrowly defined age & ethnic group. Little old ladies do NOT, as the woman said, blow up planes using 'blush'!

I remember flying several years ago, when they started using the 'random' searches at boarding gates, watching a business man and a middle-aged lady having their shoes & luggage searched, while several 'interesting' guys stood there with no interference at all.

Yes...I am TOTALLY aware that this would be awkward and in many ways 'unfair' to the large body of innocents, (and I don't believe for a minute that it is likely in the near future!), but ultimately, it will be suggested by someone with clout and authority. That's a prediction...and I'd bet it is de facto quietly being used already.

If I were a terrorist, I would be laughing as we scuttle about, spending billions to x-ray, scan, search and harass everyone who comes near an airport...then I'd go blow up another train or a bridge or a tunnel...or even a building.

This type of senseless over-reaction could seriously stifle general air traffic, making it too troublesome and expensive to fly...leaving only the rich with private planes able to get around.

Now, before you flame me as a prejudiced idiot....re-read exactly what I said!

We CANNOT prevent crazy people from trying to hurt us, but we CAN avoid being totally crazy ourselves, and be content with a HIGH degree of security!

Factory sealed WATER bottles? Perfume?

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Terrorists planned to concoct an "explosive cocktail" using MP3 players and sports drinks to blow up as many as 10 jetliners bound for the United States, authorities said Thursday.

British: Thwarted plot involved 10 jets

By DANICA KIRKA, Associated Press
Last updated: 17:36 EDT., Thursday, August 10, 2006

LONDON -- British authorities said Thursday they thwarted a terrorist plot to simultaneously blow up 10 aircraft heading to the U.S. using explosives smuggled in hand luggage, averting what police described as "mass murder on an unimaginable scale."

Britain disclosed no details [emphasis mine] about the plot or those arrested, although one police official indicated the people in custody were British residents.


Now, here's the important part, vis a vis the November elections:

President Bush called the plot a "stark reminder" of the continued threat to the United States from extremist Muslims...Bush said during a visit to Green Bay, Wis., that the foiled plot was a "stark reminder that this nation is at war with Islamic fascists."

i.e: Vote Republican.

Inspection...they already inspect everything you carry. How hard can it be to look at the seal?

.....I really think I'd RATHER be inspected live, than have the bad guys figure out how to put timers into checked luggage.

We really need to solve this idea of checking absolutely everything.

Let's put things into perspective. Many complaints (and a new book on the subject) that the CIA and FBI were not cooperating and could have prevented the tragedy. The new book seems very well documented and shows that it could have been prevented---had CIA told the FBI about who and where the perpetrators were. They did not.

So--now there seems to be cooperation between our agencies and the UK. Let us not be cynical if we expect to be protected.

I think "W"s comments, as usual, were inflamatory. As to our being "safer" that is a crock. Had he not lied and gone into Iraq and only did what had to be done in Afghanistan that might, perhaps, be the case. We are in more danger and our soldiers are dying for a wasted cause---an artificial state having our version democracy stuffed down their non-accepting throats.

Since we allow death in Darfur and other African nations (that have no oil) is it not huberus to speak of our ideals? Our vision of democracy?

Summing up---we are not safer and, perhaps, these varied agencies have finally gotten it right. Let us not be that cynical.

They are now stoping (quite rightly) all forms of liquids carried in bottles or cans etc. that is causing enough problems as it is, but lets be quite real here they are not carrying out cavity searches & we can all swallow or otherwise "hide" items! If an aircraft can be taken out by the contents of one hollowed out shoe heel then we can still get a quantity larger than this on board, where will this end? The easiest way to take weapons aboard is via staff loading food, suitcases etc. or even easier items placed behind removable panels during servicing, what would I know? well with near to 30 years service as an aircraft engineer I could do it next week no problems!

Right now this is the rule for travel from the UK.

New Carry-On Baggage Restrictions FROM The United Kingdom
Effective immediately all carry-on baggage must be processed as checked baggage for all flights departing from airports in the United Kingdom (U.K.). Due to these changes, American Airlines will waive excess baggage charges through August 17, 2006, for those passengers who need to check their carry-on bags due to these new restrictions, up to a maximum of two excess pieces.

Nothing may be carried in passengers' pockets. Passengers may only take the following items through the airport security checkpoint, in a single transparent plastic bag:
pocket size wallets and pocket size purses plus contents (money, credit cards, identity cards, etc. but not handbags or purses)
travel documents essential for the journey (passports and travel tickets)
prescription medicines and medical items sufficient and essential for the flight (a diabetic kit for example), except in liquid form unless verified as authentic.
eye glasses and sunglasses, without cases
contact lens cases, without bottles of solution
for those travelling with an infant: baby food, milk (the contents of each bottle must be tasted by the accompanying passenger) and sanitary items sufficient and essential for the flight (wipes, creams, disposal bags)
female sanitary items sufficient and essential for the flight, if unboxed
tissues (unboxed) and/or handkerchiefs
keys (but no electrical key fobs)
If an item does not appear in the list above it is NOT allowed. Additionally, no liquids, gels or other items of similar consistency are permitted to enter the sterile areas except for a) baby formula, breast milk, or juice if a baby or small child is traveling; b) prescription medicine with a name that matches the passenger's travel documents; c) insulin and essential other non-prescription medicines. This also includes liquids and gel products purchased as duty free.

All U.K. transiting passengers will be required to check any carry-ons they bring to the airport regardless of origination. Passengers who have already departed the US and will be connecting in the UK will not be allowed to use the transit area in the UK airports and will be routed back to the ticket counters to check their carry-on luggage.

This comes from the American Airline website.

Our govts are making sure foreigners flood into our countries. Our govts are jealous of our liberties and are taking them away. Our govts have clamped down on the airports so they can disarm passengers, thus rendering them defenseless when a true threat is initiated onboard by, you guessed it, the government. In Britain you are spied upon endlessly, yet you're arrested if you try to listen in on a phone call made by that old whore Camilla Gorilla. We are cattle in the eyes of the blood-sucking elite. Wake up and feel the wounds on your necks. Another terrorist attack is surely coming, but don't turn to the govt for advice and protection afterward. They DID the attack. REFUSE their "vaccines" against the Iranian crotch-rot. REFUSE the bus ride to the "Iranian-free" collection points. Beat the crap out of the arm-banded bureaucrats who tell you you "have" to get on the bus. Or better yet, give them a dose of lead. In Britain you'll have to make do with a pointy stick, but stick it to them anyway.

David & I flew back to the U.S. today (August 10) from Manchester & it was no fun. 2 hours for check-in & security, 4 hours sitting on the plane while manual security check was done in the U.S. on each passenger. I got up at 5:45 am & it was after 2:30 pm till they could serve any food. All we had on the plane w/ us were id papers, wallets, & tissues. I couldn't bring my purse, water, snacks, book--which made the 7 hour (plus 4) quite uncomfortable. 2 body searches. When we arrived at JFK in New York, it was about an hour through customs & another hour to collect our luggage. We had missed our connecting flight & been rescheduled for 4 pm to 8 pm. The 8 pm flight was delayed till 11 pm. Then, they told us it was cancelled & we might get out on standby the next day (or is it today?!) A kind couple offered us a ride to Albany in their car (4 hours). We got in at 4 pm after being up continuously. Now, we need to see if we can collect our luggage tomorrow. It's a great opportunity for thieves since we had to bundle our cameras, purses, Ipods, & all quickly into our unlocked suitcases. I'm glad I arrived safely & we all tried to make the best of it, but it was an awful day.

They were just showing an interview with a Moslem man of around 20 something - The age of most of those arrested. He said these things (terror attacks by Moslems) are happeming because 'We feel left out and excluded. We have no conrol over what is happening'.

Now, is it just me or does that sound familiar to you? Didn't we ALL say this in our dim and distant youth? Why is not obvious that this is a thing that all young men go through. It is not the exclusive right of Moslems or Black People or Hippies or Punks. Then the answer was shown as clear as anything.

The young man interviewed was from an area of Birmingham that has a 95% Moslem majority - Most of those from Pakistan. He doesn't know any better. While I 'fought the establishment' alongside my Black, White, Jewish and Christian peers this guy doesn't. All he sees is other Moslems. The only people he speaks to are other Moslems. He sees the establishment as being anti-Moslem. We know it isn't. It's just anti young men (and women of course!)

Lets end this lunacy. Stop this ridiculous Apartheid system we have and break up the envlaves. Lets show this young man and his peers that 'the man' doesn't have it in for Pakistanis. Let him see that White Christian young men are treated equaly badly. He may continue to fight but at least it will be for the right reasons!

Same with that nonsense in Ottawa. That country's Gestapo delivered some chemicals to an address and then busted the people there.

These are STAGED events. The shoe-bomber was a literal drooling idiot. The passenger thought the drool running off his lip meant he was ill, and the stewardess was notified. Geez. GOVT-CONTROLLED MIND SLAVE. And now you all have to walk around without shoes at airports.

Bush and his people were on the anti-anthrax antibiotic Cipro on Sept 10. A week later people started dying from anthrax. Now in the US there are a hundred additional postal laws because of the "anthrax scare."

It is ALL government-sponsored terrorism. If this was pure, from the gut hatred of America or Jews by the Arabs, why aren't bombs going off right now in the Jewish garment district of NYC?

Yes, terrorism is a definite threat. But let's be real about trying to deal with it.

Dick, actually all you would need to do would be to punch a hole in the thin aluminium skin of the plane. The pressure inside the cabin while the plane is at 30-40 thousand feet is immense. One tiny little hole and the pressure inside the cabin would finish the plane. Add that to the fact it would be over the ocean with virtually no chance to discover where the explosive was or what type it was and the plan is pretty ingenious.

What I don't get is that if you can blow a plane up with the contents in the cabin, what is to keep you from mixing the ingredients up before hand, stowing them in your checked baggage, and then detonating the thing when you are over the ocean. Do they think the terrorists are really that stupid not to figure that one little issue out?

Oh, well. If it was a real threat I hope they caught the perpetrators. Better to have all this debate than thousands of dead and missing loved ones.

well, yesterday at 5:05PM I predicted that someone with clout would soon be promoting serious profiling...today at 4PM, on MSNBC, one of their major anchors, Tucker Carlson, did PRECISELY that.

He had a spokesman for a US Muslim organization on, asking him why we shouldn't be specifically watching for young Muslim men, rather than "little old Black ladies in wheelchairs" and other clearly non-threatening travelers.

He got, of course, the usual "we must remember what the basic principles this country stands for, and that the best defense against terrorism is developing a good dialogue, so that Muslims feel safe in their Mosques and....." the usual suggestion that "it ain't fair to pick on us". When Carlson tried to pin him down about how almost EVERY terrorist identified in the last few years WAS a young Muslim, he got evasive answers and red herrings.

(Carlson was very careful to agree and admit that MOST Muslims do not commit these acts, and that much care needed to be taken...he just kept asking why we are working so hard to be PC, when 99+% of airline passengers DO NOT FIT the profile of hijackers & bombers!)

There were no good answers forthcoming...

Hey you lot, leave GUEST alone.

Everything becomes clear when you understand just how pervasive State Control is in this modern age.   Not many of us realise that 9-11 was actually organized and carried out by U.S. government agents in order for Big Business to make mega-bucks over the last 6 years.   

Personally, I have serious doubts about whether World War 2 actually took place, but that is just a personal thing.   

But one truth constantly denied by the West is that no muslim has in any way harmed or injured any living soul since the end of the Crusades (for which actions carried out then they have humbly and repeatedly apologised over the centuries).   

The media is either a part of the conspiracy, or an unwitting pawn.   When you see in the press that Bin Laden is quoted as saying something like "in the name of Allah, all true believers must wage war on the decadent West", you will find that the original words were "Be true to our faith and live and let live.   Walk in peace".   

And the Taliban - there never was anything like that in Afghanistan (a wonderful freedom loving democracy until invaded by Christian soldiers).   The blowing up of the Buddha statues was with explosives only available to CIA operatives - need I say more?

GUEST has got it right.   Wake up and listen to him.

And go out and hug the next Muslim you meet.   

If you can't find a Muslim, any member of any ethnic minority will do for the time being.

The pressure drop will cause the release of the emergency oxygen masks, when tugged from their housings these will supply oxygen to the bearer ( note, put yours on first before trying to help your child! you will manage it with plenty of time to help others, if you try to help them first you may fail & them you are both done for! ) There will then be a "rapid descent" to 10,000 ft or below, you can breathe from there easily.
The real problem is serious structural damage, spar failure or similar, result curtains for all, explosion in fuel tank, you won't even know about it.
Hope none of us even try out the first option.

Yo, Skipy, you were right and I need to stick my nose in the corner on that one. For example "A" just recall the 737 in Hawaii that lost a major section of the top of the jet and still stayed in one piece and was able to land.

I guess I was thinking that if the explosion happened at just the right spot (i.e. a spar or major electrical/hydraulic component) then the results would be fatal.

Thanks for the correction

Those loonies "Myth Busters" - I have some severe problems with some of their 'work' - actually sealed an old fuselage, pumped it up to the correct pressure difference,and shot holes in it. Small bullet holes just caused 'slow leaks' - they did get 'explosive decompression' results, but the necessary 'hull breaches' were pretty dramatic...

The FBI allowed the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center to occur:

http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/RANCHO/POLITICS/OK/wtcbomb.html

Other testimony (which was not allowed in the case by judges, or was discounted by the press) shows the FBI actually recruited the bombers. But the above is the bare minimum. The FBI could have substituted fake explosives and chose not to.

Then, from 2003:

"Other sources within the bureau and the Central Intelligence Agency said the administration is pressuring intelligence agencies to develop "something, anything" to support an array of non-specific terrorism alerts issued by the White House and the Department of Homeland Security...Capitol Hill Blue reported that FBI and CIA sources said a recent White House memo listing the war on terrorism as a definitive political advantage and fund-raising tool is just one of many documents discussing how to best utilize the terrorist threat."

http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=30312

So the govt wants terrorist cases. But there are none. So they create them. They go to Florida, buy some kids some combat boots and then bust them for terrorism:

http://www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald/14897299.htm

This is just a warmed-over version of COINTELPRO, which was...well, read about it here:

http://www.mail-archive.com/laamn@yahoogroups.com/msg03472.html

And the latest airline stuff in Britain is even warmed-over govt plotting. Operation Bojinka:

"One aviation security expert, Douglas Laird, said the thwarted plot eerily resembled a 1994-1995 plan code-named "Bojinka" that Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed had overseen to blow up 11 airliners simultaneously.

In that plot, al-Qaida sympathizers had planned to mix liquid explosives undetectable by most security equipment, smuggle them aboard planes in a contact lens solution bottle and then set them off using a Casio watch as a trigger, FBI documents show."

http://msnbc.msn.com/id/14280416/page/2

Bojinka, too, was a U.S. govt plan. Ramzi Yousef is a U.S. govt agent, and he's allowed to run around the world doing this kind of stuff:

http://www.cooperativeresearch.org/entity.jsp?id=1521846767-2132

The 7/7 bombings in London were a govt. action, too. I think the man who's gathered information on that is named Charles Shoebridge, if you want to do a search.

Look up Operation Northwoods for the 1962 plan by the US Joint Chiefs of Staff to kill Americans to start a war with Cuba. Declassified under the Freedom of Information Act. Kennedy fired the men responsible for the document.

Government-sponsored terrorism has been a fact of life for thousands of years. The people in power create diversions and blame them on enemies to rally populations. But with the internet we're past having to take their word for this kind of garbage. And one instance of terrorism perpetrated by the govt is enough for me. They can't be trusted after that. Blair, Bush, Cheney, Clinton, Queen Elizabeth...they have to go before they throw another REAL terrorist event into the mix.

"...This incident made me suspicious of the relationship between the Klan and law enforcement--a suspicion that deepened in 1998, when it came to light that the FBI had established a Klan chapter in Fort Worth, Texas, with the intent of blowing up a chemical plant in nearby Arlington. As a result of this episode, Texas Monthly magazine honored the FBI with one of its Bum Steer Awards."

The 911 hoax began with telling the world 5 punks with box cutters could take over an American airliner. Unless there were only nuns and children on the flight, that's not possible. I could snap the neck of one and seriously disable a second before my arterial spray was done, and I wouldn't mind going out that way at all. The insinuation that American men were immobilized by box cutters is absurd.

As for the rest. Given one hour in front of an impartial grand jury, I could present reason to go to trial against Bush & Cheney. As a matter of fact, they're already involved in numerous murder trials concerning their involvement in 9-11. The trials just don't get reported. The gangsters generated the plan for the attack, carried out the attack, covered up the attack. I could prove that to any jury in America of that in one hour, using public records. Prove it beyond a reasonable doubt. That's how obvious the job was.

Unfortunately, they don't seem to have let their #1 patsy (GWBush) in on the whole plan until afterward, when his ass was on the line. But his complicity in the coverup after the fact makes him just as guilty as the actural perpetrators (Cheney, Rumsfeld, Myers, Eberhart, et al).

American school kids are currently being SEVERELY dumbed down by Federal govt programming, so if we don't stop these tyrannists now, they'll never be stopped. Quit cowering. Quit accepting the lies on TV as truth.

Wesley S. -- who knows how many were involved? The # 3 man at the CIA, Buzzy Krongard, was connected to stock market bets against American Airlines and United Airlines on Sept 9 & 10, so was he involved? Or was he just capitalizing on scuttlebutt? Insider trading info he picked up around the water cooler at the CIA?

And Larry Silverstein bought the WTC towers just weeks before the attacks. Insured them to the hilt and then collected billions in insurance. And he paid too much for the things. They were asbestos filled and overdue for demolition. So was he involved? Probably. He wouldn't have been allowed to interfere with the plot (old man Bush would've had him killed), so he was probably appointed to be landlord so he could secure the area while the explosives were planted by "maintenance workers."

But there are 4 definites involved in the crime...Cheney, Rumsfeld, Eberhart & Myers. Then after the fact, the murders were covered up by the 911 commission (Kean, Goss, Graham), and their complicity makes them guilty of the crimes.

In June of 2001, Department of Defense head Donald Rumsfeld had control of NORAD signed over to him. First time in history the system was under civilian control. Then on Sept 11, 2001, multiple wargames were being run, creating confusion among air traffic controllers on the east coast of the U.S. Generals Eberhart and Myers of the Joint Chiefs oversaw these exercises. Dick Cheney had personal control of NORAD assigned to him by Rumsfeld on 9-11. And SOMEONE switched off the fire-on-detect missiles and gatling guns on top of the Pentagon, and Rumsfeld was in the building. After the attacks, NORAD was signed back over to the military.

Anyway, that's 4 primaries to pull it off and three to cover it up. Seven. Primaries. But a handful of others would be needed. Like the air traffic controller (can't think of his name right now) who was on duty on 9-11 and probably helped coordinate things. He was the same controller handling EgyptAir flight 990 when it went down in the Atlantic (the flight with the "insane Egyptian pilot" screaming as the plane dove into the water). Many think that was just a test of the remote guidance systems used on 9-11).

Plus there would be the people who planted the cutting charges and bombs in the WTC, and the ones who triggered the blasts via computer. Those folks are probably long dead, unless they have skills that would be hard to replace. I guess triggering those bombs would be a sort of skill. I know I couldn't do it.

Really, from the Joint Chief Generals telling the military to stand at their posts, and Rumsfeld disabling the Pentagon and Cheney supervising the whole thing, you don't need many others. Everyone thought it was just "the drills" going on as usual, like they did year in and year out.

I would imagine (with the brain work and the grunt work, wiring the planes, etc), it would take 100-200 people to set up the attack. Everyone else just did their jobs in the chain of command, and if they're ever cornered the primaries will say they were "confused." Plausible deniability.

But thank God for Leon Mineta's testimony before Congress. He heard Cheney say "the order still stands," and that could only be an override order to shoot down the plane heading for the Pentagon. That testimony in itself would hang you or me, and someday it'll hang Cheney. Hopefully.

Prescott Bush tried to overthrow the U.S. govt in 1934. Prescott admired Hitler and wanted that kind of dictatorship in America. His son, George H.W., is about to fulfill his daddy's dream of setting up a fascist tyranny in America. Or no, it's Nazism, "The policy of racist nationalism, national expansion, and state control of the economy." That's what the Bushes have set up with their war against the Arabs and their turnover of the economy to Halliburton and the other corporations. Prescott Bush was defeated by Gen. Smedley Butler, but there doesn't seem to be much in the way of the Bushes now. Hell, even the Clintons work for them.

(Ah, here it is..."The same controller handled Egypt Air Flight 990 when it crashed off the coast of Massachusetts in 1999, the employee said. The controller is "pretty disturbed" that he lost both planes, the employee said.")

http://newsmine.org/archive/9-11/911-flight-controller-handled-egypt-air-flight-990.txt

The problem is, some people have made a conscious decision not to believe 9-11 was a govt job, so the perpetrators aren't being held accountable.

People think they will risk their jobs or their pensions or their families if they support what they've been told are "conspiracy theories," but the govt is the one with the conspiracy theory. 19 men with boxcutters. Five men per plane screaming, "Don't move or I CUT you! Stay back there you hundred people, or I cut you like a BOX!" Four men screaming that on one plane. I don't think so.

The 911 Commission didn't even mention WTC bldg # 7, which fell on Sept 11. Never hit by a plane, and the 47 story building fell at free-fall speed in a perfectly controlled demolition. It was the regional center of the CIA, FBI, BATF, Secret Service, etc. And that's what the report DIDN'T talk about...the lies it told on other topics are all easily disproven by public record and scientific demonstration. So the people who buy the govt story WANT to buy it. Problem is, a govt that would do that to someone else will do it to you. Your family will die at the hands of such a govt if you don't take action. And you know it. Rationalizing won't get you out of this.

No, I have dealt with knives. But we're not talking about knives here. Boxcutters are one-inch razors. And 4 men with boxcutters aren't going to subdue 100+ avg Americans traveling on business (younger, motivated, alert people). Just doesn't happen that way. Americans trounced the British in two wars and saved them in two others, so I'm sure a planeload of Americans would be able...no, GLAD...to take down 4 turds armed with nothing but attitudes. Oh, and one-inch razors. That made my day. A Brit who's been convinced a boxcutter is...lol. Your bobbies are blowing your brains out on the trains, and you're convinced boxcutters are enormously dangerous. lol. Oh, man. You Brits ARE the masters of comedy.

But seriously, what I can't understand is why the people at Heathrow were made to pour out their liquids. Isn't that how it happened? Liquids weren't just handed over, the possessor had to open the container and dump it. That's what I read. And if the "officials" were scared of terrorists mixing chemicals to concoct something explosive or toxic, then why were they dumping all that stuff down the same drain? Did anyone think of that? And if that's the way it happened, then why did it happen that way?

"Americans trounced the British in two wars and saved them in two others"

... and made a lot of profit out of them in the process...

I'm an Aussie, dickhead. I know what 'boxcutters' are, even though that's what they are normally called here. I have seen the results, as a First Aider, of what happens when one gets accidentally out of control... never mind if one is held to someone's jugular.

You must be pretty brave with one at your throat, no doubt, but then from your remarks, you can have no other person of any significant value to you, who, being held with a sharp blade to THEIR throat would cause YOU any misgivings at all.

You must be a very lonely person in your arrogant ignorance.

While one could argue about the military supremacy of the protagonists in the War if Independence, the use of "trounced" in regard to the War of 1812 only points out your total ignorance of the nature, history & outcome of that colossal U.S. clusterfu$k.

Here, try this:

The people who ran 9-11 scripted in one flight where the planeload of passengers stormed the FIVE MEN ARMED WITH ONE-INCH BOXCUTTERS at the last minute. What a crock. But it had to be written in because Americans wouldn't buy the 9-11 story otherwise. To NOT act aggressively in a situation like that is unthinkable, so they added some heroes for us. "Let's roll," and they wrestled the plane to the ground rather than let it hit a populated area. What crap. I know the name of the pilot who shot down the plane and the name of the General who issued the order. But they manipulate some audio and then make a TV movie to cement the lie and Americans now think some of their own "took action" against 5 inches of cold steel on 9-11. They pre-planned that flight as a movie-of-the-week.

9-11 has to be continually returned to because it is the event out of which all subsequent government abuses have grown. We wouldn't HAVE govts abusing passengers at airports if everyone would just face the facts of 9-11. The Cavemen of Tora Bora didn't do it. It didn't happen like the US govt says. And 63 more "rogue nations" are on the list to be invaded (Afghanistan first, Iraq next, etc.), so if you don't confront what's happening to us, your children will die in foreign wars.

GUEST is trying to get y'all excited with arrant nonsense.

I believe "Americans outfought, outfoxed, and outwaited, and outwitted the British in one war (with a little bit of help from the FRENCH FLEET).

That other war is better forgotten by both sides. I don't want the Canadians thinking about burning down the White House AGAIN!

As far as a plot to foist 9/11 on the world, the TV Pilot of "Lone Gunmen" used that for a plot about half a year prior to 9/11/01. Meanwhile, GUEST should find someone to read and 'splain that issue of Popular Science or Mechanics which deals with all the current myths.

It is reported that the fiasco in Boston Airport after the Washington flight was diverted, was due to a lady passenger having a panic attack, surely the panic attack was with the authorities at Boston Airport

Whatever the truth of this latest scare the terrorists must be laughing their socks off at the amount of disruption this has caused in the West.

I travelled to the UK yesterday in a plane that was more than half empty and had to go through extensive security checks at Boston airport to get on the plane. The least problem brings on major paranoia from the authorities and everything gets backed up even more. I wonder what the cost of all this in lost business and man hours would come to.

These guys don't need to carry out their threats - they are making their point quite nicely right now.
