I'm ready to believe it's all psyops
Posted by Jill | 10:35 PM
Yes, indeedy, I am. It's just too convenient. The ONLY times we have terrorist threats or reports of attacks planned are when the Crawford Caligula is on the ropes. Here we are, a day before he has to deliver the State of the Union Address to a hostile Congress, the bloodbath in Iraq gets worse by the say, surge or no surge, and all of a sudden, we not only have what is purported to be a new al-Qaeda video, but suddenly there's a report that Iraqi insurgents had been planning attacks inside the US:

Mimicking the hijackers who executed the Sept. 11 attacks, insurgents reportedly tied to al Qaeda in Iraq considered using student visas to slip terrorists into the United States to orchestrate a new attack on American soil.

Lt. Gen. Michael D. Maples, head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, recently testified that documents captured by coalition forces during a raid of a safe house believed to house Iraqi members of al Qaeda six months ago "revealed [AQI] was planning terrorist operations in the U.S."

At the time, Maples offered little additional insight into the possible terror plot. ABC News, however, has learned new details of what remains a classified incident that has been dealt with at the highest levels of government.

Sources tell ABC News that the plot may have involved moving between 10 and 20 suspects believed to be affiliated with al Qaeda in Iraq into the United States with student visas — the same method used by the 19 al Qaeda terrorists who struck American targets on Sept. 11.

U.S. officials now require universities to closely track foreign nationals who use student visas to study in the United States. University officials must report international students who fail to arrive on campus or miss class regularly.

In August, the FBI and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement alerted intelligence agencies and state and local law enforcement about 11 Egyptian students who had failed to report to their classes at Montana State University. The students were ultimately apprehended.

Still, despite the heightened precautions, some security analysts fear that skilled terrorists — handpicked because of their clean records and because they are carefully trained — could still slip through an academic setting.

Now isn't that just SO fucking convenient? And hasn't ABC -- those wonderful people who brought you a revisionist history of 9/11 told as fact and who have hired wingnut hate-peddler Glenn Beck because Good Morning America isn't crappy enough -- done its job of shilling for the Administration well? After all, this is an incident from three months ago, and they're bringing it out now in the hope of scaring Americans right before the Failure-in-Chief tries to bamboozle the nation yet again?

Given the pattern of these stories and alerts ALWAYS happening when this president is in deep trouble, and given that the 9/11 attacks occurred when people were already saying that Bush's presidency was already over before it even started, I am this close to believing that the entire terrorist threat is one giant psyops experiment.

Because NO ONE could be THAT cynical otherwise, could they?
