The federal agency that engineered virtually all terror plots in the United States, the FBI, two years ago geared up for what may be the next phase in the war on manufactured terror.
Corporate media ramps up fear quotient at the mall.
After a siege at a Kenyan mall two years ago, the FBI started staging mock attacks in U.S. shopping centers during off hours to test their readiness, an official said.
More than 60 people died when Al-Shabaab militants raided an upscale mall in Nairobi and held shoppers hostage for four days.
The terror group released a video Saturday calling for similar attacks in malls in the United States, Canada and the UK.
The U.S. government does not have any specific information indicating malls in the United States, the UK and Canada face a specific threat.
Although Homeland Security and the FBI say they are not aware of a specific, credible plot against U.S. malls, they’ve worked to improve security in light of the attack in Kenya.
Last year, the FBI teamed up with various malls nationwide to increase preparedness, a law enforcement official told CNN. It tested the readiness of SWAT teams by staging fake attacks at malls when they were closed, the official said.
Since then, the FBI has had a program that works with malls to improve security, the official said.
Intelligence Agencies Micromanaged Nairobi Mall Attack Narrative
The Westgate mall carnage came under suspicion when it was learned “Israeli intelligence agencies assumed a key advisory role to the Kenyan police and directed the public-information releases, according to news reporters on the scene. As in many sensitive police-intelligence operations, information releases to the media are ‘strategic.’ a euphemism for psychological operations,” Yoichi Shimatsu wrote in October, 2013.
The FBI and Israeli specialists worked with the Kenyan government to formulate a narrative on the attacks which were attributed to al-Shabaab, a Somalian terror group comprised largely of members from Yemen, Sudan, the Swahili Coast, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. In 2010 Jonathan Evans, the former head of MI5, “a significant number of UK residents” were training with the group.
As Infowars.com and others have documented, British intelligence is directly responsible of sheltering known terrorists. In the late 1990s British intelligence recruited, groomed and protected a number of terrorist figures, including individuals allegedly associated with the September 11th attacks in the United States and the London 7/7 bombings.
