As with any magic trick, the idea is to distract people’s attention with one hand long enough to perform a trick with the other hand.

False flag events are not about the ‘terrorist’ incident ( i.e. distraction ) but about what happens next.

In the case of the bombing of the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City, it was about demonizing the militia movement and increasing the power of the government.

In February 1995 the Clinton administration had introduced the Omnibus Counterterrorism Bill. But the bill was running into stiff opposition until the Oklahoma City bombing occurred two months later.

In May of 1995 Clinton submitted an amended bill which was later passed. It along with Executive Orders made everyone in America a suspected ‘terrorist’. These new laws allowed the Federal government to gain access to financial and credit reports in anti-terrorism cases, to wiretap and spy on Americans without a warrant, and to gain access to other records – all in the name of fighting terrorism.

9/11 presented an even bigger opportunity to terrorize the public. It provided the rationale for invading oil and opium rich countries, justified a massive uptick in defense spending, and set in motion the means to eliminate Israel’s enemies in the Middle East.

In October 26, 2001 the Orwellian Patriot Act was signed into law by George Bush. It allowed the government to suppress anyone opposed to these actions by labeling them as a potential terrorist. Among other things, the act :

dramatically reduced restrictions on law enforcement agencies’ ability to search telephone, e-mail communications, medical, financial, and other records; eased restrictions on foreign intelligence gathering within the United States; expanded the Secretary of the Treasury’s authority to regulate financial transactions, particularly those involving foreign individuals and entities; and broadened the discretion of law enforcement and immigration authorities in detaining and deporting immigrants suspected of terrorism-related acts. The act also expanded the definition of terrorism to include domestic terrorism, thus enlarging the number of activities to which the USA PATRIOT Act’s expanded law enforcement powers could be applied.

The Act was passed by wide margins in both houses of Congress and was supported by members of both the Republican and Democratic parties. Opponents of the law have criticized its authorization of indefinite detentions of immigrants; searches through which law enforcement officers search a home or business without the owner’s or the occupant’s permission or knowledge; the expanded use of National Security Letters, which allows the FBI to search telephone, e-mail, and financial records without a court order; and the expanded access of law enforcement agencies to business records, including library and financial records.

The underwear bomber incident in 2009 allowed Homeland Security Chief Michael Chertoff to make money off of body scanners at the airports and to further subject the America public to treatment as terrorists.

The latest incident of the failed bomb in Times Square in New York has given Mayor Bloomberg the perfect excuse to install ‘security cameras’ throughout the city. No doubt many will be on Wall Street. The recent revelations of widespread fraud and theft by the bankers on Wall Street and the public demonstrations against them probably made them nervous. A new terrorist threat had to be manufactured in order justifying the cameras.

If anyone has any doubt about who the real terrorists are, they are watching the wrong hand.
