WHAT IF THE Terror "PLOT" STORY is NOT TRUE?
The Ramzi Youssef story.
Analysis Terror Plot: Real or Surreal? If Real, How Should or Could it have been Handled?
New Trend Special Report (New Trend Magazine. www.newtrendmag.org Biggest Islamic web site in the USA.)
The Plot to blow up TEN aircraft in mid-flight over the Atlantic was revealed on August 10 leading to tremendous distruption of air traffic in Britain and in the U.S. The travelling public suffered the most. Fear and anxiety have spread out in ever increasing ripples.
Our tools of analysis indicate the following
The story of the plot is coming out of the Blair government which is not known for its honesty and veracity. Blair’s intelligence service manufactured the excuses for the assault on Iraq. Blair himself is a practised liar and is not trusted by the majority of his own countrymen.
But let’s begin by accepting the terror plot as if IT IS TRUE. If it is true, it raises serious issues based on the information which has come out till now:
1. The plot was known to the British government for SEVERAL MONTHS. One report says,it was known as far back as December 2005.
2. An INFORMER had successfully infiltrated the plotters, which indicates that the plotting was known in DETAIL to the British.
3. NO incident took place before the 22 British Muslims of Pakistani descent and 2 British converts to Islam were arrested. Thus the CNN-MSNBC-FOX reporting of "TERROR IN THE AIR" which created the impression that something horrible had already happened or was about to happen was false.
4. No incident took place at the airport in London or anywhere near a plane. Thus the media idea, probably suggested by both both governments, of IMMEDIATE danger was false.
5. General Musharraf’s regime played a key role in the unravelling of this plot. The Pakistani end of this story needs to be looked at critically. Pakistan is said to have called on the British to go ahead and arrest the British Muslims of Pakistani descent who allegedly have links in Pakistan. Seven people were arrested by Musharraf in Pakistan before the signal to arrest the British Muslims was given [Again, how much truth does Musharraf tell? More than Blair or less? Has Musharraf handed over these Muslims to win browny points for his one billion dollar award from the U.S.?
QUESTIONS OF TIMING:
We are told that Blair informed Bush of the impending action on Sunday, August 6. The public was informed on Thursday, August 10. Why?
There are two aspects to the "Why?"
1. Lieberman, a Zionist hawk, who had successfully infiltratef the Democratic Party, was narrowly defeated by a total newcomer, Lamont, in an inner party election on August 8. Both Hillary and Bill Clinton worked hard for Lieberman and almost made him a winner, but Lamont still won on a clear "Anti-Iraq War" platform.
2. The Lieberman defeat sent shock waves through the entire Republican machine with nightmares of political collapse in the forthcoming elections.
3. The Terror Plot revelation reversed the situation to a considerable degree. America is in danger, so the argument goes; hence we need Bush-types like Lieberman.
4. In LEBANON, 800,000+ people have been rendered homeless by the Israeli terror group IDF by way of aerial bombardment. In GAZA, the entire population has NO ELECTRICITY and water and food supplies are dwindling owing to raids on the helpless population by columns of Israeli tanks, 50 tanks at a time, supported by air strikes.
4a. On top of that, on the frontlines, the Israelis were BEATEN BACK for 30 days by theHizbullah. Every day, CNN-MSNBC-FOX showed Israeli tanks and infantry rolling DEEPER and DEEPER into Lebanon till viewers wondered how much of Lebanon was there to conquer. The TERROR PLOT story completed removed from TV screens the entire Lebanon story, with Israel’s defeat at the hands of a small Islamic group now quite clear.
5. Let’s suppose the story is true, but in war time a government which cares for its people is supposed to HIDE ENEMY ACTIVITY. Why is enemy activity being given MAXIMUM PUBLICITY? The government has something to gain from this publicity. It creates the MASS FEAR which permits the government to tighten its grip on the country and to repress criticism and scrutiny.
6. By the time the story was revealed, the plotters had already been arrested. WHY then the huge campaign to stop passengers from taking carry on baggage with them on to planes? This seems to be what Suskind calls Vice President Cheyney’s ‘One Percent Doctrine." Millions of people are being given the impression that they should give up their right to take coffee, or a cold drink, or even tooth paste with them because 24 British Muslims were ALLEGEDLY preparing to carry liquid-produced explosives on to planes. The men have been arrested but the fear and danger is being trasmitted to EVERY passenger, British and American.
7. What could have been done instead of this media-related fear campaign? Let’s look at WORLD WAR II.
7a. The plotters would be quietly arrested, No publicity.
7b. The government was "on to" the plotters for several months. Thus there was plenty of time to gradually introduce restrictions on carry on baggage, especially on liquids. Again no need for horrific "fear" publicity.
7c. The origin of the plotters would never be revealed. If they are revealed as of "Pakistani origin," that immediately creates division WITHIN the nation.
8. ORIGIN of the plotters would never be revealed UNLESS we want our public to turn against Pakistanis and create a situation where the general public would terrorize the Pakistani minority, or the Pakistani minority would be so scared as to accelerate the process of ASSIMILATION.There are indications that the story might not be true:
1. Christiane Amanpour, CNN senior reporter very close to U.S. intelligence agencies, brought up the story of Ramzi Youssef, who was convicted for planning to blow up U.S. planes flying over the Pacific.
1a. A number of other news outlets have also repeated the Ramzi Youssef story and flashed his gaunt and forbidding image on TV screens to convey the impression that this kind of "liquids-as-explosives" plot has been tried before.
2. Ramzi Youssef is in a Colorado prison with absolutely no contact with the outside world. He was sentenced to multiple life terms. He cannot tell his side of the story. Fortunately New Trend has a copy of the appeal which was filed by his attorney.
2a. The details given in the appeal show how a fake terrorist plot can be created to identify and convict a person who is hostile or deemed hostile to the U.S.
3. The story of "liquid explosives" to bring down a whole bunch of planes was concocted by the government to convict Ramzi Youssef, the Appeal filed by Youssef’s attorney [Jewish] shows.
4. According to the Appeal, the police officer in the Philippines who filed the ORIGINAL case against Youssef RECANTED his story. However, the American Judge [Duffy] who tried Youssef either did not know that the Filipino police officer had recanted or he knew but did not care.
5. The Filipino investigation of the "multiple airline explosions" plan by Youssef, using liquid explosives, found that his COMPUTER, seized by the police, had been tampered with. His files were ERASED and replaced by "terrorism-related" files.
6. Ramzi Youssef was captured in Pakis

I agree wid yah nik but look at the flip side of it too. Media and government has overplayed it but it doesn't mean its true either. Hatred against Muslims in the west being fanned too. Just see who is the beneficiary of this whole drama.
There will be more theatrics as elections draw closer in US and especially when ruling party will see loosing hold on the power. Don't forget how just days before 2004 elections OBL's tape came out. Loud mouths in US trumpeted that to the advantage of one party by spreading paranoia of terrorism which swung neutral votes in their favor.
