As the mid-term elections rapidly approach and Barry Obama’s popularity numbers continue down the tubes, the government is pulling out all the stops to hype the possibility of a “Mumbai-style” terror attack on Europe and the homeland.
|ABC News: RailSafe "surge" planned for Friday.|
“U.S. authorities plan a law enforcement surge this week along Amtrak routes, an exercise called RailSafe, and the heads of the country’s biggest mass transit systems were briefed today on the possible terror threat, all part of what is being called an abundance of caution,” reports ABC News today. The “high-security exercise” will be held on Friday.
No less than five exercises and drills occurred on September 11, 2001, as Muslim cave-dwellers supposedly plowed aircraft into the WTC and the Pentagon. The exercises that simulated the behavior of hijacked aircraft paralyzed the FAA, NORAD and the Air Force and prevented them from using the standard operating procedures they had used previously to escort wayward aircraft, mostly notably that of professional golfer Payne Stewart in October of 1999.
The Ministry of Homeland Security insists the RailSafe exercise was planned months ago. It is suspicious the exercise will occur as details emerge about the alleged al-Qaeda plot to target tourists in Europe and possibly the United States.
U.S. officials say they have tracked one of the suspected German terror cells to the German city of Hamburg. In the mid-1990s Moroccan imam Mohammed Fazazi gave weekly sermons at the al-Quds mosque in Hamburg and the sermons were attended by Mohamed Atta, Marwan Alshehhi, Ziad Jarrah, and Ramzi bin al-Shibh, the supposed 9/11 hijackers.
According to the official narrative, Syrian-born businessman Mamoun Darkazanli was instrumental in the creation of the now infamous Hamburg al-Qaeda cell in the early 1990s. Darkazanli is now the imam of the Taiba mosque — previously al-Quds mosque — where we are told a nefarious plot was hatched to attack Europeans and Americans. “The mosque was a meeting point for the ‘jihadist scene’ which had in the past sent recruits to take part in the armed Islamist insurgency in Pakistan and Afghanistan,” reports Reuters.

But as usual ABC News and Reuters are not telling us the whole story. The LfV, the Hamburg state intelligence agency, had infiltrated and compromised the al-Quds mosque in 1999 and were “interested” in Atta, Jarrah, Alshehhi, bin al-Shibh, Bahaji and others.
Is it possible Mamoun Darkazanli is a CIA asset? In 1999, the agency began “persistent” efforts in collaboration with the LfV to recruit Darkazanli as an informant. “Any attempt to recruit Darkazanli on behalf of the CIA would have to be made by operatives of the LFV. In early 2000, around the time the hijack pilots were returning to Hamburg from Afghanistan, an LFV agent casually approached Darkazanli to ask if he was interested in becoming a spy,” John Crewdson wrote for the Chicago Tribune in November of 2002. The FBI was also interested in Darkazanli.
Darkazanli was also connected to the Twaik Group, a documented front group for the Saudi Arabian intelligence agency that is tied to Prince Turki al-Faisal. The prince is the head of Faisal Islamic Bank of Saudi Arabia. The bank was directly involved in running accounts for the known CIA asset bin Laden and his associates. The Twaik Group deposited more than $250,000 in bank accounts controlled by Darkazanli.
In 2002, al-Faisal admitted that in order to protect the CIA’s need for more discretion, “a group of countries got together in the hope of fighting Communism and established what was called the Safari Club. The Safari Club included France, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, and Iran [under the Shah].”
According to journalist Alex Constantine, the Safari Club was a CIA cut-out “founded with the express purpose of engaging in covert operations in Africa and the Middle East without leaving a CIA footprint.”
It is highly suspicious that the latest terror threat is said to have emerged from a mosque controlled by German intelligence with an imam that has connections to the CIA, Saudi intelligence, and a shadowy group established by the CIA to fund covert intelligence operations.
Of course, we can’t expect ABC and the corporate media to report that the latest terrorist event in the making was manufactured by the CIA and its affiliates.
Instead, we will be harangued by the corporate media with the need for the government to stage “surges” in the U.S. and subject the people to even more pernicious attempts to impose a suffocating police state apparatus once confined to airports but now spreading its tentacles out to train routes and eventually highways, streets, and the local mall.
