Excellent roundup of the discrepancies in the government’s story so far concerning the Tsarnaev brothers.

Continued Cover-up of Contacts of Boston Bombing Suspects with FBI and US Intelligence

This one I hadn’t heard:

Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis also told the House committee that an officer of US Customs and Border Protection, a unit of the US Department of Homeland Security, who served on the Joint Terrorism Task Force in Boston and had knowledge of Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s travels, did not inform any of the four Boston police officers assigned to the group.

Let’s see.  Russia warned US intelligence, twice, both before and AFTER his trip to Dagestan in 2012 that Tamerlan Tsarnaev was a terrorist.  Saudi Arabia warned the United States at least once.  The FBI even interviewed Tamerlan, the alleged mad bomber, and his family.  Then for some cloudy, unexplained reason shrouded in mystery and deception, the FBI failed to keep track of Tamerlan when he returned from Chechnya and Dagestan, a known hotbed of Islamic radicalism where car bombs explode on a regular basis.

A casual internet search would have turned up the most radical Jihadist videos and pronouncements, and Tamerlan made himself persona non grata at his local Mosque as well.  His radical outbursts got him booted from the Mosque for being too nuts.

Oh, but FBI never heard of “the suspects” before, and needed to enlist the public’s help to identify them from photographs.

On the other hand, in the case of that terrorist fiend Julian Assange of the “terrorist website” Wikileaks, it’s a different matter altogether.

“At least a dozen American governmental agencies, including the Pentagon, the FBI, the Army’s Criminal Investigative Department, the Department of Justice, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the Diplomatic Security Service, are assigned to the WikiLeaks case, while the CIA and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence are assigned to track down WikiLeaks’ supposed breaches of security. The global assault—which saw Australia threaten to revoke Assange’s passport—is part of the terrifying metamorphosis of the “war on terror” into a wider war on civil liberties. It has become a hunt not for actual terrorists but a hunt for all those with the ability to expose the mounting crimes of the power elite.”

The Death of Truth

I was pleasantly stunned when I saw Coleen Rowley posting a link to the very same article I posted here yesterday:

The Chechens’ American friends: The Washington neocons’ commitment to the war on terror evaporates in Chechnya, whose cause they have made their own

“Alice in Wonderland is an understatement if you understand the full reality of what’s going on.”

Rowley is, of course, a national hero and national treasure, who tried desperately to stop the 9/11 attacks before they happened, but she was repeatedly blocked from doing so by superiors at FBI headquarters.  When she says “down the rabbit hole,” she is not exaggerating, nor being facetious.  This is realty in America: the US government plays both sides of the terrorism game.  Do you understand this?  Do you want to understand this?

Terrorism is a useful tool — in their view — when directed at one’s enemies, and the US government has been using it for as long as you have been alive, in various ploys and disguises around the world.

So when people jump to conclusions about possible “false flag” scenarios, they may be premature, but not without precedent.

PS

You really, really need to read Coleen Rowley’s piece on the Chechen / Al Qaeda connection if you give a damn about any of this. Ignorance is not bliss. Nor is stupidity glamorous or hip.
