European stock markets have already rebounded. The US president watched a ball game yesterday yucking it up with Castro.
Seems like these types of false flag events are getting pretty commonplace these days. Nobody is bothering to go through the motions anymore. When all out war with “ISIS™” starting up in the capitol of the EU doesn’t elicit either panic in the markets or even a reaction from the man at the center of the Global War OF Terror, something tells me people in the know are getting tired of playing their roles.
Two days ago the terror attacks in Brussels left the corporate MSM in a tizzy. They were beside themselves covering the story non-stop which continues right up until this morning. Of course, they hardly ever mentioned the PKK offshoot bombing in Istanbul last week carried out by the Kurdish “Freedom Falcons” (“freedom fighters”? sound familiar?)
Turkey is a partner in NATO. I wonder why the complicit corporate press ignored that little story of terror. Draw your own conclusions.
As is usually the case with these all-too frequent events, I like to take a day or so to let the BS sink to the bottom before I write about them. In this case it didn’t take long to discover this official story has all the hallmarks of a false flag event complete with confusing stories, patsies heavily connected to law enforcement officials and a clear and present motive which is in this case, a European version of the USA Patriot Act.
The two similar looking individuals in that photo from the airport, the ones wearing the one glove on their left hands, turn out to be brothers Khalid and Brahim El Bakraoui who were well known to police and in fact, career petty criminals in Brussels. at least one of the brothers was supposed to be in prison right now, but for some reason, they are at large and running around making bombs.
“They are brothers Khalid and Brahim El Bakraoui, both of whom were known to police, but for organized crime, not for acts of terrorism, state broadcaster RTBF reported.
Khalid El Bakraoui rented an apartment in Brussels that was raided last week and both are suspected of having ties to the Paris attack, the source said.” CNN
“Belgian media reported, and was previously jailed for nine years (in 2010 which means he should still be in prison) after shooting at police during a robbery.
Once again we have suspects who are well known to law enforcement involved in one of these events. Suspects who were not known for ties to terrorism but rather to organized crime. And in at least one case, one of those suspects seem to have been released early. As you may or may not know, LEOs often cultivate undercover assets from the criminal underworld by offering them reduced sentences that way they can hold the charges and the prison-time over their heads, making it easier to get them to do what they want.
In this case, it looks to me like the third man in the picture may just be their handler, someone who takes them where they need to go and makes the necessary arrangements regarding whatever project they are assigned to. But that’s just a guess.
The official story with these two guys is pretty weak. It goes something like this:
For no apparent reason these two career petty criminals find Allah and decide to become suicide bombers for “ISIS™” (and then law enforcement lets at least one of them out of prison early?). They make contact somehow with the then at-large mastermind behind the Paris attacks who gives them an “ISIS™” flag and a target. The cops raid their crappy little apartment last Tuesday and there’s a big shoot-out with the fuzz. Oh yeah… the “terrorists” used Ak-47s in that shoot-out. One guy is killed but two others escape, presumably the brothers. Then, a cabbie remembers he drove the brothers and their handler to the airport so he takes LEOs back to an apartment that was and says that’s where he picked them up. They search the place and find all the evidence they need to prove it was the brothers who acted as suicide bombers at the airport… only… one wasn’t a suicide bomber and he shot himself somewhere in the airport, far away from prying eyes… and oh yeah… they found an AK-47 on him. Oh… and the apartment was rented by one of the brothers.. under a false name.
Okay. Seems pretty straight forward, right?
“Fortunately, a taxi driver called police shortly after the photo was released and said he believed that he drove the trio to the airport. ”
“That information prompted authorities to raid a residence after the attacks, the officials said.
Investigators found a nail bomb, chemical products and an ISIS flag during a house search in the northeast Brussels neighborhood of Schaerbeek” CNN
“A Kalashnikov, book about Salafism and Isis flag was found alongside a large quantity of ammunition in the flat, which Khalid was suspected of renting under a false identity.” The Independent
“Khalid El Bakraoui rented an apartment in Brussels that was raided last week and both are suspected of having ties to the Paris attack, the source said.” CNN
“Belgian media also reported a Kalashnikov assault rifle was found in the departure hall of the Zaventem airport.” CNN
“An alert was put out for the pair following a police raid in the Brussels suburb of Forest last week where two men escaped as a gunman battled with officers before being shot dead.” The Independent
“Both were originally reported to have died in the departures terminal but updated Belgian reports alleged that Brahim killed himself at the airport on the Metro.” The Independent
The third man has supposedly been identified by “intelligence sources” as Najim Laachraoui, an “ISIS™” handler who made the suicide bombs. It’s not explained why his didn’t go off or why the second one used by Brahim went off but did so without that critical “suicide” part.
“The third man seen wheeling heavy bags into the airport, wearing a goatee, spectacles and fishing hat was named by intelligence sources to local media as Najim Laachraoui, 24, a suspected Isil commander who made the suicide bombs used in the Paris outrage in November. ” Telegraph
Laachraoui is supposedly already in “police custody”
Yeah, I guess he would be. Can’t have your handler running around in the general public after you put a picture of his face on national TV. They tend to say all sorts of things when they are getting beaten to death by an angry mob.
and European Patriot Acts
Everywhere you look, someone is trying to use these events for their own purposes.
- John McCain is saying it ties back to Syria and therefore we have to get 10,000 Saudi Salafist terrorists to follow a couple dozen US Special Ops troops into Syria for a ground invasion. Of course, he thinks we should bomb the shit out of Syria before they get there.
- Donald Trump says we need to pass new laws allowing for all sorts of torture because… Muslims.
- There are all kinds of reports stating the brothers “probably” used encryption to communicate with “ISIS™” so Apple better turn over their code to the feds.
- Ted Cruz thinks we should start kicking in doors in Muslim neighborhoods right here in the states just for the fun of it I guess.
Everyone has an agenda when something like this happens. They are all political and they are all changes expected to take place in the wake of a terrorist event. Kinda like the definition of terrorism, ain’t it?
But the big one, the one that seems to be dominating the airwaves right now is what appears to be a European version of the USA Patriot Act.
Do you remember right after 9/11 when all the talk was about how the attacks could have been avoided, had only the intelligence agencies shared information with one another? Notice anything developing in Europe?
- Brussels Airport And Metro Bombings: Could EU Intelligence Sharing Have Stopped Belgian Terror Attacks?
- Brussels attacks: Belgian intelligence service seen as weak link in Europe
- After Brussels, Europe’s intelligence woes revealed
- Brussels attacks a ‘failure of intelligence‘: Belgian terrorism expert
- After Brussels, officials call for better intel sharing across Europe
“Bernie Sanders tells reporters in Arizona that the attacks in Brussels, Belgium, show the need for “significantly improved surveillance” and the sharing of intelligence with countries around the world.
The Democratic presidential candidate is condemning the attacks in Brussels. He says he strongly disagrees with calls by some Republicans for stepped up domestic surveillance of Muslims in the United States.
He said in Flagstaff, Arizona Tuesday: “That would be unconstitutional – it would be wrong.” News 9
As if going by a script, Hillary Clinton makes the exact same call on CNN:
“We have to toughen our surveillance, our interception of communication,” the former secretary of state and Democratic presidential contender said Tuesday in an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer…
In the interview, Clinton called for increased information-sharing between the United States and European countries.” CNN
And right on cue, Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Hartford parroted the developing talking point:
“There needs to be much more effective sharing of intelligence and resources among European nations and among our nation,” said Blumenthal.” Fox 61
What they are looking for is a new Patriot Act to be extended to the whole of the European Union and apparently, if they don’t get it right away, there will be more terrorism to come until they do. For those of you with two remaining brain cells to rub together, the fascist USA Patriot Act failed in congress the first time around right after 9/11 so then the “terrorists” sent anthrax to the offices of congressmen who voted against it and some reporters who were publicly skeptical of the fascist bill so the next time around it was passed with flying colors. I guess someone got the message. Funny how those “terrorists” seemed to want us to have a Department of Homeland Security, ain’t it?
“The U.S. State Department has issued a travel warning to Americans for the entirety of Europe in the wake of the terror attacks in Brussels citing the threat of “near-term” attacks throughout the continent.
“Terrorist groups continue to plan near-term attacks throughout Europe, targeting sporting events, tourist sites, restaurants, and transportation,” said the alert, which expires on June 20, 2016.
“U.S. citizens should exercise vigilance when in public places or using mass transportation.”
Americans were told to take particular caution “during religious holidays and at large festivals or events,” the alert said.”
A whole month of new terror attacks in Europe. I guess that will get them on board with “freedom”
What conclusion would you draw from all of this? Law enforcement and state intelligence services have two scum-bag brothers ready to patsy-up and in the end, if all goes well, those same law enforcement agencies and intelligence services are enhanced 100-fold in terms of power and equipment via a new European Patriot Act with all the lovely fascist trappings that come with it.
At this point you might expect me to write about Gladio and how the fascists back then were worried about Europe leaning too far to the left so they staged a bunch of terrorist attacks in order to unify the nations via the “fear and loathing” banner.
But you guys are too well informed for me to bother mentioning that. Instead, I will simply leave you with this:
