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