The Department of Homeland Security and the FBI have issued a warning about a possible al-Qaeda attack on the anniversary of September 11. The government says Muslim cave dwellers will use small aircraft in the attack.
Authorities are stepping up security, reports KTRK in Houston, even though there’s no information about a specific threat.
According to experts, al-Qaeda plans to strike on the tenth anniversary with a large-scale attacks and smaller attacks said to be easier to pull off.
There are 228,000 general aviation planes at 4,000 airports nationwide. Since implementing police state security on all small planes is impossible, the government has instead issued a high alert to airports.
“Two FBI agents actually came in and introduced themselves and told me about the possibility of, not a specific threat, but that al Qaeda was planning to use general aviation to harm us here in America,”flight instructor Bob Wood with Diamond Aviation told KTRK.
In 2004, the TSA used the theft of a crop duster in Mexico to issue a terrorist advisory. The TSA admitted they did not have any information indicating terrorists had stolen the aircraft, but issued the advisory regardless. “Past information indicates that members of al-Qa’ida may have planned — or may still be planning — to disperse biological or chemical agents from crop-dusting aircraft,” the TSA said.
Any possible chemical or biological threat posed by a terror group that has a history of deploying mentally deficient terrorists like Richard Reid and Umar Farouk Abulutallab is a remote possibility at best.
“Even if they have the ingredients, a fairly pure agent and explosives, construction of an effective device poses a significant challenge to a kitchen-table terrorist,” writes John Lettice for the Register.“The construction process is extremely dangerous, and it’s perfectly possible that the resultant device will have no effect at all.”
Obama was accused of issuing exaggerated “non-specific” terror threats last year for political reasons. The former boss at the Department of Homeland Security, Tom Ridge, admitted in his memoir that the Bush administration used terror warnings in 2004 during the election. The dubious warnings coincided with the release of an equally dubious Osama bin Laden tape.
The September 11 anniversary provides a unique opportunity for the establishment to reanimate their flagging war on terror with a new round of fear-mongering propaganda and will allow them to exploit decade old footage of the attacks in order to insist that al-Qaeda – the CIA created terror group that has not launched a successful attack since that date (if we assume they indeed did carry out the attack) – remains a threat requiring Gestapo goons at airports, a high-tech surveillance grid, and the dismantlement of the Bill of Rights.
