Chat Room Terrorists and the Holland Tunnel

In Bushzarro world, terrorists have the expertise to blow up New York’s Holland Tunnel and flood Wall Street, even though the tunnel is buried in bedrock below the Hudson River, is constructed of concrete and cast-iron steel, and lower Manhattan is above the level of the river. Like the official version of nine eleven, the Holland Tunnel plot runs counter to science and the laws of physics.

“The FBI discovered the plot by monitoring Internet chat rooms, where the aspiring terrorists discussed striking the U.S. economy,” reports the New York Daily News.

If we are to believe the FBI and the corporate media stenographers at the Daily News, this chat room chatter, or rather puerile blather followed on the heels of a declaration uttered by a dead man.

“Al Qaeda founder Bin Laden has often urged his followers to ‘bleed’ America financially,” the Daily News continues. “They’re hell-bent on destroying the economy in the U.S.,” a so-called counterterrorism source told the newspaper.

Of course, it is not clear who is “hell-bent on destroying the economy,” supposed terrorists or the FBI.

A couple weeks ago, in Miami, an FBI “al-Qaeda” agent provocateur allegedly managed to get a handful of post-adolescent poor African-American kids to “swear allegiance” to “al-Qaeda” and discuss blowing up the Sears Tower in Chicago, although the government has so far failed to produce evidence these kids planned to blow up anything.

Neocon politicos wasted not a moment and jumped all over this latest absurdity. “This is one instance where intelligence was on top of its game and discovered the plot when it was just in the talking phase,” averred Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y. “There was nothing imminent, but it was being monitored for long period of time,” Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., chairman of the Ministry of Homeland Security Committee, told the Associated Press.

Recall King’s demand the New York Times be prosecuted for treason after it reported the Treasury Department is in cahoots with the CIA, snooping on the financial transactions of Americans.

Naturally, the alleged chat room blather plot, instigated by a man who died of kidney failure five years ago, will give King and his fellow “conservatives” (i.e., fascist neocons) an excuse to defend various Stasi-like snoop programs and prosecute reporters for outing government malfeasance.

Obviously, the Holland Tunnel terrorist plot is yet another publicity stunt designed to convince Americans they are under attack.

“Just as the revelation that the Bush administration has been spying on the financial transactions of Americans hit the main stream press two weeks ago, the FBI announced that it had arrested seven terrorists for plotting to blow up the Sears Tower in Chicago. But now the defense team for those suspected terrorists is making a strong argument that the entire operation was actually planned by the government in order to manipulate public opinion, according to the Raw Story,” reports the Free Market News Network. “The government is using the case as an example that the FBI can stop homegrown terrorists. However, critics argue that the FBI is violating its own Undercover Guidelines in order to produce cases out of thin air in an effort to create a diversion in the media away from more important news such as surveillance of financial transactions.”

More than a diversion, the effort is part of an on-going scheme to scare the heck out of average Americans, by now well-steeped in fantastical terrorist nonsense with no factual basis in reality. But then facts and common sense are not required, as a large number of Americans are easily duped.

As I write this, thousands of New Yorkers probably believe there was indeed a plot to blow up the Holland Tunnel and this improbable effort would flood lower Manhattan, never mind that it would take heavy rain or a coastal storm to flood that part of the city.

But then, according to the government, Muslims were able to melt steel with kerosene on nine eleven and through evil alchemy and conjuring Allah, cave-dwelling terrorists made the World Trade Center towers free fall to the ground while simultaneously pulverizing tons of concrete, office furniture, computers, etc., to micron-sized dust particles.

If people believe Muslims are capable of such, they will likely also believe blowing up a tunnel will result in the sort of damage only possible through hurricane or storm forces. In other words, our neocon captured government has a large number of ill-informed and ignorant people by the short hairs and right where they want them.
