The corporate media is making a big deal out of the wrong-way guy and his female companion caught on a Continental Airlines surveillance video at Newark Liberty International Airport during the holiday.
“The video, released by the office of Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J., shows an unidentified man standing for several minutes near Checkpoint 1 in the Newark airport’s Terminal C, apparently waiting for a woman at around 5:20 p.m. The Transportation Security Administration officer assigned to the post appeared to be aware of the man’s presence, and at one point the officer instructed the man to move back,” reports ABC News.
In a statement, Lautenberg said the release of the video will help authorities find the guy and punish him for his wrong-way criminal activity.
Regardless of Lautenberg’s statement, the real purpose behind the release of the video is to juice up the propaganda effort now underway by the government in cooperation with the corporate media to manufacture a hysterical pretext to increase Gestapo tactics in airports (and eventually everywhere else).
[efoods]Obama’s top White House aide on defense and foreign policy issues, James Jones, said Americans will feel “a certain shock” when they read an account being released later today “of the missed clues that could have prevented the alleged Christmas Day bomber from ever boarding the plane.”
Senate Intelligence Chairman Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., added that a “very comprehensive no-fly list” would be “the greatest protection our country has.” In an interview, she said the definition of who can be included should be expanded to include anyone about whom there is “a reasonable suspicion.”
As of July, 2008, over a million people were considered suspicious. “The nation’s terrorist watch list has hit one million names, according to a tally maintained by the American Civil Liberties Union based upon the government’s own reported numbers for the size of the list,” the ACLU noted. “Members of Congress, nuns, war heroes and other ‘suspicious characters,’ with names like Robert Johnson and Gary Smith, have become trapped in the Kafkaesque clutches of this list, with little hope of escape,” said Caroline Fredrickson, director of the ACLU Washington Legislative Office. “Congress needs to fix it, the Terrorist Screening Center needs to fix it, or the next president needs to fix it, but it has to be done soon.”
Instead, in the wake of the Christmas day false flag event, Congress will expand it.
Neocon bloggers and pundits — most notably the concentration camp apologist Michelle Malkin — are calling for profiling Muslims in response to the obviously staged Christmas non-bombing. Israel is cited as the example to follow, according to The Financial Times. “Countries such as Israel that use profiling say it is not used on a racial basis but anecdotal evidence suggests south Asian and Middle Eastern people are far more likely to be stopped.”
In addition, government officials and “experts” are demanding full body scanners be installed in every airport and all air travelers be subjected to the dangerous machines that violate child pornography laws.
Finally, it is interesting that the Newark video was released in short order and yet the video that would put to rest the “sharp-dressed man” controversy surrounding the Christmas day event has not been released by officials in Amsterdam.
Kurt Haskell, an eye witness to the boarding of patsy Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab in Amsterdam, has demanded that video of the event be made public. On January 6, Dutch authorities announced that Mutallab acted alone with no accomplices at the Amsterdam airport.“I’m not surprised, we expected this,” Haskell told Big Government.
Mr. Haskell appeared on the Alex Jones Show and voiced his concerns over government behavior in the case. Haskell told Alex Jones the FBI has changed its story about the event on numerous occasions.
