Report August 11, 2006

According to knowledgeable sources in the UK and other countries, the Tony Blair government, under siege by a Labor Party revolt, cleverly cooked up a new "terror" scare to avert the public’s eyes away from Blair’s increasing political woes. British law enforcement; neo-con and intelligence operatives in the United States, Israel, and Britain; and Rupert Murdoch’s global media empire cooked up the terrorist plot, liberally borrowing from the failed 1995 "Oplan Bojinka" plot by Pakistan- and Philippines-based terrorist Ramzi Ahmad Yousef to crash 11 trans-Pacific airliners bound from Asia to the United States. In the latest plot, it is reported that liquid bombs were to be detonated on 10 trans-Atlantic planes outbound from Britain to the United States.

The London terror plan was "known" last Sunday by British and American authorities, according to the Indian press. American Airlines flight 109 from London Heathrow to Boston boarded a family of five, however, after the plane left Heathrow authorities determined that the father appeared on a British suspect list drawn up after the 7/7 London transit attacks. At first, the pilot was instructed to fly all the way to Boston where U.S. authorities could claim credit for apprehending the suspect. However, the pilot, fearing for the safety of his passengers and crew, refused and quickly returned to Heathrow without informing the passengers. Once on the ground, it was discovered that the male had in his carry-on baggage the type of combination liquid explosive and electronic device now being hyped by the British and American media.

British sources report that the reason for the delay in informing the airlines and traveling public about the liquid bomb on the American flight was to maximize the beneficial political impact for Blair and George W. Bush, both plummeting in the polls from the situations in Iraq and Lebanon.

Earlier this week, two employees of Murdoch’s London tabloid, News of the World, were charged with hacking into the voice and text cell phone messages of three members of the staff of Clarence House, the residence of Princes Charles, William, and Harry. One of those charged with the wiretapping was Clive Goodman, the Royals editor of the News of the World. The same paper earlier tried to politically damage two anti-Iraq war British politicians — Scottish Socialist Tommy Sheridan and Respect Party MP George Galloway. The paper charges that Sheridan was unfaithful to his wife by going to swinger’s clubs. He won a quarter million dollar lawsuit against the paper. Galloway was confronted by Mazher Mahmood, an individual who uses the moniker "Fake Sheik," who posed as a wealthy Arab businessman and tried unsuccessfully to get Galloway to accept cash and make anti-Semitic remarks. In fact, Mahmood was and continues to be a reporter for News of the World, his continued employment approved by Murdoch. Goodman has merely been suspended by Murdoch but he has not been fired.

However, what prompted Murdoch and Blair to hype a new global "terror" threat was what Murdoch learned from eavesdropping on the phone calls of Prince Charles’ staff at the future king’s office, home, and limousine. The eavesdropping revealed that Charles was working with Chancellor of the Exchequer Gordon Brown, who is to the left of Blair, to conduct the same type of political maneuver that John Major used to oust Margaret Thatcher from office. London’s left-wing Mayor, Ken Livingston, was also in on the Charles-Brown plan and it was expected that in return for his support, Livingston would get a senior position in a Brown cabinet — a development that sent shock waves through the neo-con circles in London, Washington, and Jerusalem, including British Home Secretary John Reid and Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff. The Charles-Brown plan was briefed by Blair to Bush during the former’s recent visit to Washington. However, because the phony terror plot was known to both leaders — they decided to be away on vacation when the terror plot was "uncovered." Bush is vacationing at his Crawford, Texas "ranch," while Blair is on vacation in Barbados, staying at Sir Cliff Richard’s luxurious villa.

After Blair met with Bush in Washington, he flew to California where on July 30 he attended Murdoch’s News Corporation private corporate executive conference at the posh Inn at Spanish Bay golf resort in Pebble Beach. Blair met with Murdoch, Israeli former Prime Minister Shimon Peres, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Newt Gingrich, and various Fox, Star, and Sky News executives. The final touches were agreed to by Blair and Murdoch on how the fake terror plot would play out in Murdoch’s media empire.

Blair told Bush that a Brown government would move to withdraw British troops from Iraq, break the "special relationship" with the Bush White House, and move closer to the European Union and the United Nations.

The Israeli attack on Lebanon created a rift within Blair’s Cabinet with some former Blair loyalists signaling their support for the political coup against Blair. As a result, a suspect passenger was permitted to board an American aircraft at Heathrow with a liquid bomb to lay the groundwork for the media and travel hysteria five days later.

The wiretapping of Charles’ messages also indicated that he has weighed in with various European royal families to discourage them from inviting Bush on state visits to their nations. This, reportedly upset the Bush and Blair regimes, who were working together to improve Bush’s image in Europe. The White House’s displeasure with the monarchies in Spain, Belgium, Sweden, Luxembourg, and Norway are a direct result of the Murdoch eavesdropping on Charles’ staff.

Not surprisingly, after Galloway tore into a Sky News reporter on a recent televised interview, The Sun, a Murdoch paper, is now reporting that one of the 24 British aircraft liquid bomber suspects now under arrest, Waheed Zaman, met with Galloway "many times." The paper quotes the sister of the suspect. A Galloway spokesman denies that Galloway knows the suspect. What is suspect is the Murdoch media empire that makes up news and commits illegal acts to provide cover for the false flag operations being conducted by Britain, the U.S., and Israel.

Pakistan’s Inter Service Intelligence (ISI) agency has helped provide the cover story for the alleged liquid bombers. Working with British and U.S. intelligence, the ISI says it broke up the plot after arresting terrorist suspects in Lahore and Karachi. However, the ISI claims that the men were affiliated with the Kashmiri terrorist group Lashkar-e-Toiba, a group that is run and funded by the ISI itself.

The disclosure of the Charles-Brown plot has already created a backlash from the neo-cons. The Murdoch media is already floating the rumor that Home Secretary Reid is now Blair’s chosen successor, while there will be an effort to scandalize Charles in an effort to convince the British public that it would be best to skip over him and have Prince William assume the throne upon Queen Elizabeth’s death or abdication.

British commentators are noting that it is Reid, a noted neo-con, who is chairing national security "Cobra" meetings in Blair’s absence. Blair bypassed Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott and many political observers believe that Prescott was passed over because of evidence that he was involved in supporting the Charles-Brown coup. Prescott chaired Cobra meetings in the wake of the July 7, 2005 (7/7) London transit bombings.

Meanwhile, Republican governors Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mitt Romney used the occasion to boost their sagging popularity by placing their states’ National Guardsmen at major airports in their states.

  • Of course this is a fake plot. There were no terror plots in the UK to blow passengers up while flying to the US. This is such a convenient story I have ever heard. Everyone that is anyone knows this. It doesn’t take a Rocket Scientist to figure this one out. Now we have the news talking aout the "terror in the sky," themed piece of work. I laugh that they could even engaged in conversations believing that this really happened and not question a hoax. It is funny to see this deep conversations on the news, along with non-expert terrorist news anchors talking about how to make bombs, the materials and all this liquid concoctions that they have absolutely no idea what they are talking about. It shows when they are on air that they have no clue what they are talking about. CIA retirees on the news interviewed by news anchors discussing the terror plot on how much they know about what is going on.

    It’s bad enough there is no decent news channel, along with every news anchor is either too young to broadcast and understand anything, or a bunch of Fox Friends being a bunch of wacko’s and war mongers to continue pushing the war on. CNN is a joke all the way down to Anderson Cooper that in my opinion ruined his career in this mideast war news coverage and now the terror plot coverage.

    Now we have to suffer and not bring carry on toiletries on board. Now, come on. It’s going on down below, what is the difference? Let’s really think about it.

    Pure hog wash.


  • There really are Snakes on a Plane. Let’s all go see the movie.

    • Its a nice smokescreen , and as you say to deflect from Blairs inadequacies, lack of independent thought, and total lack of decency and integrity.

      Convenient also that the ’plot’ comes to light the day after Blair flies off to Cliff Richards sumptuous Barbados villa.

      Thats not to say there aren’t thousands of Pakistanis and Muslims in Britain who are totally agrieved at the UKs foreign policy and alignment with Bushs Judeo/Christian crusade, and are willing to retaliate at varying degress, as they bide their time.

      However, any ’terrorist’ retalition suits the US/UK to justify further foreign and Draconian internal policies.

  • It is interesting that some of you people still don’t get it. There is a very dangerous group, faction, what ever you want to call it that want to kill you. Get it, KILL you! Perhaps you have to much time on your hands and seek this kind of stuff out. I suspect some people must lay awake at night thinking up this conspiracy stuff that you folks immediately buy into it. Wow!, I knew it all the time, Bush and Blair did it! Great! Hello!, Do you actually believe this? I dont!

    Because of the actions of many, working for you, today, you can travel with reasonable safety. And, in the free world, you can even read and write this kind of stuff without fear of jail or torture or what ever is worse. I am amused!

    • It could well be true -though the timing is good. It deflects from a general disbelief that Blair could not endorse an immediate ceasfire in the Middle East, attaining unprecedented unpopularity, and go swanning off to Cliffs Barbados villa.

      You’re right there is a group who’d like to kill you and me -but that has come about because of US and GB troops on the Arabian peninsula, the invasion of Iraq, the invasion of Afghanistan and the US and GBs unwavering endorsement of Israels anihilation of Palestinians.

      I don’t buy into this Livingstone/Brown conspiracy theory, and it is a definite that there is a smouldering Muslim population that feel an attack on one is an attack on all. Unfortunately I agree with John Reid that it’s not a question of if, but when another attack on US or GB soil occurs.

      We need to put pressure on our governments to show that in the long term this new 21st Century imperialism is good for no one except the rich cabals and weapons manufacturers.

    • There is a MOLE among us! You are so transparent. How much did you sell your soul for?

    • But since they’ve shown their true colours...In yet do you really think they are concerned about the misfortune of others, would you think they do, want power and influence, and, in the broadest sense, victory?

  • Hindsight is always 20-20 and anybody can make up a story to fit the situation. If you knew of these "goings ons" prior to the situation itself, why did’nt you post it then. You are no diferent than a psychic who is always seemingly predicting events but can never tell anyone tomorrows winning lottery numbers. What??????????? What ever happened to COMMON SENSE and LOGIC.??

    • No mate, I have Pakistani friends who are Muslim and they all feel to different degrees a sense of injustice as to whats going on in the Middle East.

      Its not a question of being psychic, just common sense. I posted this on a thread on this site after the July 2005 bombs in London, when this Wayne Madsen who wrote the piece above said ludicrously that the bombs were set of by Government/Secret Service. A Chicago based, incidentally Bush supporting Professor of Politics, in an exhaustive study of suicide bombers, has found 98% cite foreign troops on Arabian Peninsular soil as their prime motivation.

      It’s prudent for our governments to label the backlash to invasion and maiming as ’extremism’ or, as Bush described as ’Islamo-Fascists’. Otherwise its akin to them saying ’ Oh we fucked up’.

      It’s expedient for them to call it a ’War on Terror’ rather than the ’terror’ being an act of revenge for bombing Muslim people.

      We probably agree on the concept of Islam. People who run this entity would like nothing more than it to be an Islamic world. Madness. A backward step for humanity and reason, as is any religion or concept that is invasive and simplistic. but you don’t educate them away from blinkeredness, or explain other philosophies of life by bombing the fuck out of them.....unless you want to steal the natural resources and inflame a minority as a by product in the process. What you find with these entities, be it Capitalism, Communism, Islam, or Christianity is that the people at the top couldn’t give a fuck, but use them as tools, sell them to us.

      sorry gone on a bit there:-)

    • The news in America on CNN and MSNBC are now reporting that there was no immenent threat, and that this entire situation is highly suspect.

      They are saying that it’s likely the suspects may not even have enough to hold them. Are you kidding me?

      Mr. Bush went up 10 or 11 points in his poll numbers since the initial report of this. (Of course, when you’re as low as he is in the polls, that’s not a huge bump)

      And now Americans are hearing that the whole thing was likely another bogus set up by losers Bush and Blair, likely with the assistance of the ever-so-sneaky Karl Rove.

      Bush and Cheney are ensuring that Americans are terrified, regardless of what they have to do. If Democrats take control of Congress in November (which is what most Americans want), Bush will be heaved out on his ass. No one in the history of this planet has LIED so much as George W. Bush.

    • only bush and blair can save the world from terror. I am so glad tony blair is on his game. He and bush together are what we all need to save us from the savages. Two heads are better than one. Blair is the brains and bush is the braun so to speak. Its like having einstien with the hulk’s body fighting the muslim savages out to kill every westerner and make slaves out of western women to build a jihad army. blair is so smart, i just know he will save the west as long as you all support bush. Bush brings him the military to kill the savages before they kill you. Dont you see?
      God bless america and great britain. long live the queen. Victory victory victory!!

    • Yes, it’s true Bush is going to have a hard time when November comes. There is no way the American people are going to take this administration much more.

      Bush needs to take a heavy dose of laxatives.

      I blasted Fox news yesterday. After I sent off the email, some how they put the things in that I was blasting them for on. Like real news... Not whitewash sugar coated crap. But that lasted for about 20 mins then they want back to their regular crap.

      As for psychics, I am a psychic myself, not a fanatic one, but when it comes I get sick very sick, or I have a dream a very distinct dream usually when it is a full moon. I can tell you my dreams are usually 100% acurate. They happen within 3 days after the dream and it is pretty much like a clock ticking, occassionally the event usually occurs within 3 months after the dream—some how it is in 3’s for what ever reason. I would have no clue how to predict anything such as a lotto ticket. That kind of thing would never come to me. I have predicted preganancies, earthquakes, meeting people I have never met at all or never planned to meet, large and small events, and conversations. Pretty much all kinds of things. As for disaster events I have had some on occassion, but one has not happened as of yet.

      And yes this was concocted just like most of the terror threats are. I have a question, we know who did 9/11 attacks, which was not al queda. This was a large scaled job within the US and possibly another country, which I am not going to name. Then we have this new terror in Britian. One question to ask the readers above namly the one that said that this is certainly a terror plot. Can you name one incident where al queda attacked the united states on their soil or anywhere else and be 100% certain that they were the ones that did it. You need to have back up as I never accept documentation that does not have back up along wiith it. I am not sticking up for these people, I don’t think they even have enough money to fund this kind of thing. Think about it, these are people that don’t have furniture in there dwellings, and they live in caves. I really think that people need to really start thinking about where terrorists attack and this is not including suicide bombers in Iraq.

    • Surely,you must be very anxious to join the armed forces and fight for you heroes.They need people like you,they are not going to send their own children.

    • im glad we have bush and blair to protect us from the savage islamic fascists as bush said. Maybe you all dont get it but i feel safe knowing tony and george have my back. These two are the real warriors. They also walk with grace and inttelligence, especially tony. He’s my hero. Together blair and bush will keep the savages away from the west.

    • Yeak ok mate we all believe you’re for real, especially the bit about you wanting George and Tony up your back, the two true warriors, with their big spears of spurting Christianity.

    • So now we know that they have been watching these guys since June of ’05. We know that they hadn’t got passports or airline tickets yet. We know that the chemicals they would have needed to use are too corrosive to carry in plastic. But now, not before when they first learned about it, but now, we can’t take lip gloss or gel insoles etc. on planes?

      Whether this was a real threat or not (We may never know), what we do know is that these guys are using it to manipulate public opinion to keep their power. They do not have the public good in mind.

    • sorry, the second "these guys" in the above post is Blair/Bush/ Murdoch.

  • We’re just stupid sheep and cattle, that Blair and Bush can panic this way and that.

    (Shortly after 911 there was a "terrorism attack" in one of the CSIS states (ex of the Soviet Union) in which the State Prosecutor ended up indicting the intelligence service (who picked up 4 Pakistani visitors, killed them and left their bodies at the "terror" site). However, I don’t have an URL and I don’t remember any other details. Does this ring a bell for anyone?)

  • This type of thing is nothing new. 911 was an inside job. The towers fell at the speed of gravity.
    Anyone that believe tha 19 arabs with boxcutters did THAT has really drunk the kool-aid. The hole in the pentagon was NOT from a 757 and the CIZA confiscated all the local surveillence tapes from all the local merchants. To this day they refuse to release them. The anthrax was American made - from American labs and no arrests were ever made. Oh but we sheep will forget all about that quickly.

  • Are the "terrorists" helping the UK government to implement it’s latest wild and woolly regulation that it found too difficult to implement?

    Hand luggage

    New restrictions for airline passengers

    Under new regulations you will only be allowed to carry one standard sized bag on to a flight. It doesn’t matter how much it weighs but you’ve got to be able to lift it into an overhead locker on the aircraft. In addition to that, a briefcase or laptop will be allowed if it fits under a seat.

    Bag size crackdown
    Airports to crackdown on oversized hand luggage

    Passengers flying out of Britain’s busiest airport are to be stopped from taking oversized hand luggage on flights.
    Airport operator BAA has announced it will begin to limit the size of carry-on luggage from this July, starting with Heathrow.
    The move follows demands by the Department for Transport that airlines crack down on bag size because a trend towards bigger hand luggage has increased the time needed for security checks, causing long queues.
    Size limit
    Bags will have to be no more than 56cm (22in) long, 45cm (18in) wide and 25cm (10in) deep to be allowed as hand luggage.
    The new rules, which are to be implemented throughout Heathrow by 1 August, will mean that passengers will be asked to check in as hold luggage all bags that don’t fit in the gauges provided at check-in.
    BAA spokeswoman Liz Neighbour said: ’Passengers are now packing larger, thicker hand baggage filled with more electronic devices then ever before. This trend demands extra security attention leading to longer queues. It’s time for the journey of the over-stuffed "wheelie bag" to end at check-in.’
    Bag gauges
    Signs and baggage gauges will be placed throughout all Heathrow terminals advising passengers of the new regulation on size.
    Last week British Airways revealed it would be allowing economy passengers just one check-in bag each on most routes.
    In a shake-up of its luggage rules coming into force in October, the airline will also remove weight limits on hand luggage, which matches rival Easyjet’s policy. BA says it will require only that you can lift your bag unaided into the overhead locker.
    From October charges for excess baggage will also change. Economy passengers will be charged flat rates for exceeding the weight limits. Charges will be GBP 30 for domestic flights, GBP 60 for short-haul and GBP 120 for long-haul. And there will be a 20 per cent discount for pre-paying excess charges online.

  • full article below exposes the real terrorist the big boy , the master of T boy (Blair, and Bush, Morduch. It is an eye opening, what u do after reading it is a big question as u the reader considered to be from the mas majority or the silent majority , do u know what that means in these days, just read this defention from Mr harold:

    When asked if the masters felt any threat from the ’silent majority,’ he laughed at the idea, saying:

    "There is no such thing as the silent majority because we control their cry and hue. The only thing that exists is an unthinking majority and unthinking they will remain, as long as their escape from our rigorous service is the opiate of our entertainment industry.
    By controlling industry, we have become the task masters and the people the slaves. When the pressure of daily toil builds to an explosive degree, we have provided the safety valve of momentary pleasure.

    The television and movie industries furnish the necessary temporary distraction. These programs are carefully designed to appeal to the sensuous emotions, never to the logical thinking mind. Because of this, the people are programmed to respond according to our dictates, not according to reason. Silent they never are; thinking they will remain."

    Continuing his thought of human control , Mr. Rosenthal said:

    "We have castrated society through fear and intimidation. Its manhood exists only in combination with a feminine outward appearance. Being so neutered, the populace has become docile and easily ruled.
    As all geldings in nature, their thoughts are not involved with the concerns of the future and their posterity, but only with the present toil and the next meal."

    After reading this interview do u want these criminals to live with u?

    , if you have heart problem avoid reading the satanic versus but please expose it to max so the peole be aware, they can fool some people some time but they cant fool all people all time:
