That recurring question: Why didn’t they do something about them before they attacked?

French reports say that the man, who was around 30 years old, was already known to French anti-terrorist authorities prior to last night’s attacks. 

Similarly in January 2015 in the wake of the “Charlie Hebdo attack” which left 12 dead, it was revealed that French security agencies tracked the perpetrators for nearly a decade beforehand, having arrested at least one terrorist a total of two times, incarcerating him at least once, tracked two of them overseas where they had trained with known terrorist organizations and possibly fought alongside them in Syria, before tracking them back to French territory.

CONFIRMED: French Government Knew Extremists BEFORE Paris Terrorist Attack

Today in the insane fraud that is US foreign policy… “all appropriate vetting.”

I think Uncle Sam needs a new “vet.” This is the status quo. Numerous radical terrorists get trained by the US and its taxpayers.

There’s this guy too:

When will the American people stop the perpetrators? There are supposed to be laws against giving “material aid to terrorists.” But the CIA does so daily, in secret, in Syria. THERE IS NO ACCOUNTABILITY AT ALL!!!!

No one loses their job!

No one goes to jail!

They keep doing it!

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck!

Obama’s “Counterterrorism Center” feeds info to Associated Propaganda to get their version out before independent outlet can publish.

Spy Agency Stole Scoop From Media Outlet And Handed It To The AP

NY Times jammed its claws into this meat too with a very strangely misleading set of numbers. In the first paragraph — the one everyone reads — they claim:

“of whom about 5,000 have been placed on one or more watch lists”

 Then, in the 4th paragraph, where fewer than half of readers are likely still reading, given the data presented at the top…

“Over all, the number of people listed in the center’s database of terrorism suspects surpassed one million in June 2013, the documents said. Of those, approximately 680,000 were on the watch lists,”

Say what?

They claim 5,000 are on watch lists. They claim 680,000 are on watch lists.

Sense?

The Times is downplaying the severity by misleading readers at the top of the story.  And it’s blatant. It makes no sense at all, except as propaganda.

 

PS

Could it be fuzzy math???

 

 

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.
