The CIA and White House has reported that the CIA has thwarted another "underwear bomb" plot. Allegedly the bomb was an al-Qaeda airplane bomb but supposedly never posed a threat to the public.There have been several different reports from Washington and each statement sounds more absurd than the last.The last statement from Washington says that the President was told about the bomb in April,but the President and DHS announced that there were no new al-Qaeda threats against the US.The President has placed DHS and law enforcement agencies and emergency services on alert and told them to do what ever was necessary even though this alleged underwear bomb was never a threat and never even passed through airport security more less boarded a plane.
The absurdity of even reporting this scenario is beyond belief,and further enforces the world's view of the US government as corrupt liars and fools.Since the bomb never even headed toward any airport The CIA must be fielding prophets or fortune tellers to be making so many assumptions.Apparently the FBI is in possession of the"underwear"bomb doing a thorough study of the IED.If the CIA has become so efficient that they can disarm terrorist before they even decide on which plane they are planning to attack then why do we need so many new laws removing civil liberties in the name of the war on terror?What is the need of the NSA opening data gathering facilities across the US and the Congress passing laws that have removed every US citizens privacy?
This assumed plot to detonate an assumed bomb on an assumed plane that had not been decided on by al-Qaeda seems quite suspicious assuming there is even any merit to the whole ridiculous situation.Also why would Obama stand up and lie to the public and say there were no new Al-Qaeda threats against the US when it was stated that the President was told in April about the assumed attempt?Does the government feel that the citizens of the US shoud only know what they see fit to report?Or is the whole thing a lie(a really unplanned and juvenile lie at that)to boost Obama's campaign or get some higher approval of the corrupt and out of control CIA?Read the report from NPR below and come up with your own assumptions
