According to this article, Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab, the famous Underwear Bomber, has a father who is the head of a Nigerian bank. Since 2009 the country of Yemen had incurred 5.9 billion dollars of foreign debt for development. A MAJOR creditor was this Nigerian bank headed by Umar's father, Umaru Mutallab.
Umaru Mutallab was the Nigerian Minister of Economic Development in 1975. He then spent a decade as the Managing Director and CEO of United Bank for Africa. For the last ten years, Umaru has been the chairman of the First Bank of Nigeria.
Mr. Mutallab is arguably the biggest banker in Nigeria - the guy who got the IMF into Nigeria. He is also the chairman of Jaiz Bank, which is in turn supported by Islamic Development Bank (IDB). These banks introduced Islamic banking to Yemen, and loaned quite a bit to Yemen, along with other foreign banks.
Umar's mother is from Yemen. The press is pretty much silent about her.
If the revolution in Yemen were to succeed, all those loans would get defaulted. So it looks rather fishy that Mr. Mutallab calls the CIA (numerous times) to rat out his own son; then later the son, who appeared drugged, is escorted onto a plane by a Well Dressed Man, without a passport, a ridiculously small amount of explosive goes off that he's sitting on (which by itself renders it ineffective, although the "official" story was that he'd sweated on it too much), and magically the US has an excuse to come to the "rescue" of Yemen. How convenient. And the US claims it "dropped the ball" on watching Umar Mutallab. Yeah right. So who was the Well Dressed Man?
Could it be that someone saw these complaints by Mr. Mutallab about his son and decided to take advantage of the kid as a patsy? Perhaps Umar was the black sheep of the family, and wanted to bomb the plane; but I doubt he would have gotten very far without this Well Dressed Man drugging him and herding him aboard. I can't see another Arab terrorist getting away with hornswaggling the people at the gate into letting the kid on without a passport. It had to have been an intelligence agent of a NATO country.
I also don't understand why the kid wouldn't have had a passport, unless for some reason his father's warnings made it so he was on a no fly list.
Those naked body scanners had been ordered a full month before this underwear bombing incident. Which means they were looking for an excuse to introduce them. The American public would not have stood for them without some "terrorist attack". Pardon me for thinking it's all a bit too convenient.
About the fake terror: I suppose it could be argued that these agents are flushing out those who have ill intent by egging them on and then equipping them with fake bombs, but perhaps the patsies would not have done anything without someone egging them on. Actually it's a credit to the American people, all of us, that the attacks happen only with some agent provacateur making it happen. It means that people generally want peace.
So, why do they manufacture fake terror? Look at what they made happen next. The erosion of freedoms. Naked body scanners, hands in the pants even for grandmas and little kids, a veritable Panopticon of surveillance, checkpoints at football games, malls, even the PROM for godsakes; and now they want to be able to kill domain names on a whim and monitor your car and God knows what else.
WHY? What do they think is going to happen that they need all this security against their own populace? Obviously there aren't all that many real terrorist attacks, so we're a lot safer than they make us out to be. Do they think that terrorist attacks will one day happen for real? Do they think the American people will revolt one day?
Could they be making a self-fulfilling prophecy?
Keep in mind that someone else besides the gold bugs and libertarians may have seen an economic crash coming when Nixon took us off the gold standard. It's not inconceivable that someone in the government knew exactly what they were doing. In which case they were a traitor, because they have sown on purpose the seeds of our destruction.
