Flight 253

The Christmas Bomber and the Fraudulent War on Terror

"Let's be clear about what this moment demands.  We are at war.  We are at war against Al Qaida."
- President Barack Obama, 7 January 2010 

For the people on the ground in Pakistan and elsewhere, Obama's "War on Terror" means only more U.S. aggression and terrorism - against them and their families.  Hundreds of innocent civilians have already been killed by Hellfire missiles fired by C.I.A. operated drones.  Is this not state-sponsored terrorism?

The Christmas Bomber and the Fraudulent War on Terror

 In Washington, President Obama is under pressure to take action. The Christmas Day attempted attack over Detroit may have failed, but it brought back instant memories of 9/11. Military action will continue.
- Jeremy Bowen, BBC Middle East Editor, 5 January 2010

On 18 November 2009 I published a warning in which I said there was a "very high" risk of a false-flag "Al Qaida" terror attack against Americans.  The warning was the thrust of my article, entitled “Terror Risk High as Obama Ponders Afghan Fiasco,” which begins with this sentence:  "The risk of another false-flag terror attack like the terror atrocities of 9-11 is currently very high."  (A "false-flag" terror incident is one that is designed to affect public opinion by being blamed on a third party by the real perpetrators.)  On Christmas Day, thirty-seven days after my article was published on Bollyn.com, the false-flag terror incident I predicted occurred on a passenger airliner approaching Detroit's Metro Airport.

The "attempted" bombing on Christmas Day was designed to garner support for President Obama's actions in support of the Zionist fraud known as the "War on Terror".

My November 18 warning of a false-flag terror attack was the first I have ever issued based on my own understanding of the political situation at hand.  I decided to publish the warning because I was absolutely convinced that the Zionist planners behind the fraudulent "War on Terror" desperately needed a high-profile terrorist incident involving Americans to gain public and political support to legitimize the actions the Obama administration has taken to advance the Zionist war on Islam.  As President Barack Obama called for a massive troop surge in Afghanistan there was clearly an urgent need to validate his ill-advised policies to increase U.S. force levels in the disastrous and costly eight-year-old war - a war of aggression which lacks any validity.  Since terrorism is the primary tool and tactic in the Zionist construct known as the "War on Terror" it seemed quite logical that a false-flag terror event involving "al Qaida" was imminent, so I published the warning.    

To be successful, a false-flag terror attack has to attract a huge amount of attention around the world and be immediately interpreted by the mass media in such a way to sway public opinion in the direction desired by the terror planners.  The propaganda value of a false-flag terror attack is the real reason behind the architectural planning of such an event.  This is the main difference between the two major attacks that occurred during the Christmas holiday period.  The suicide bombing on December 30 of the C.I.A.'s Forward Operating Base Chapman in Khost, Afghanistan, in which seven high-level U.S. intelligence officers and a spy chief from the Kingdom of Jordan were killed was obviously more lethal, but it was not a false-flag terror attack and has no propaganda value, quite the contrary, it revealed that the King of Jordan is an active member of the U.S. war effort in Afghanistan and Pakistan.  The suicide bombing of the C.I.A. base was a military attack reportedly carried out by the Taliban and meant to take revenge for the C.I.A.'s killing of hundreds of innocent people in Afghanistan and Pakistan with the agency's current weapon of terror, the drone loaded with Hellfire missiles.  

Death from Above: A C.I.A. remote-controlled Predator drone fires a Hellfire missile.  This is fundamentally the same terror tactic that was used to kill thousands of Americans on 9-11.  Who has decided that the people on the ground deserve to die?  What is their crime?  Defending their homeland from foreign occupation?

Funeral in Pakistan for a victim of a C.I.A. drone attack.  Who determines who is a militant and who is a civilian?

The “failed al-Qaida bombing attempt” on Christmas Day in Detroit, on the other hand, is exactly the kind of false-flag terror attack I meant in my warning, although I hadn't anticipated the possibility of an "intentional dud," which this incident evidently was.  Readers of Bollyn.com know that this was the first and only time I have published a false-flag terror warning based on my own understanding of the logic and players in the Zionist fraud known as the "War on Terror."

As I wrote on November 18:

The risk of another false-flag terror attack like the terror atrocities of 9-11 is currently very high…An Israeli-designed terror attack that is seen by the public as having been committed by Al Qaida would serve as an effective decision maker for Obama and swing public opinion behind sending more troops to the eight-year-old war of occupation in Afghanistan.  This is why I consider the chances of another terror attack to be blamed on Al Qaida to be very high at the moment.

The Christmas Day attack of the so-called Underwear Bomber on Delta’s Northwest Airlines Flight 253 is Mossad's idea of a joke but it is certainly meant to be taken with all seriousness by the Zionist-controlled media and corrupt politicians who make policy decisions based on such events.  Jeremy Bowen, Middle East Editor for the BBC, distilled the propaganda message of the Christmas Day bomber down to its simplest form for public consumption on January 5:

In Washington, President Obama is under pressure to take action. The Christmas Day attempted attack over Detroit may have failed, but it brought back instant memories of 9/11. Military action will continue.


One can imagine that the Israeli leaders Shimon Peres, Benjamin Netanyahu, Ehud Barak, and their fellow terrorists who planned this false-flag terror scenario, got a good laugh out of the inept Underwear Bomber – only at his expense and ours.  The level of false-flag terror absurdity in the United States has truly reached the level depicted in Brazil, the futuristic film of a world dominated by terrorism.  The Terry Gilliam film was actually produced by the Israeli weapons dealer and senior Mossadnik, Arnon Milchan (or Milchen), a close friend of Peres, Netanyahu, and Barak.  The Zionist terrorist masterminds chose Christmas Day for several reasons, primarily because of the increased psychological effect on Christians, but also because it is the one day of the year on which the security and passenger-screening crews would be largely staffed by people who don't celebrate Christmas.

The attempted bombing of Flight 253 by the 23-year-old Nigerian was obviously not meant to destroy the plane.  Had Abdul Mutallab actually exploded his "explosive device" the terror event would have had no immediate propaganda value.  First, the wreckage would have to be found in the depths of the North Atlantic or expanses of eastern Canada and then an official investigation conducted to determine what had happened to the Delta flight that had suddenly disappeared from the radar screen.  It could take weeks or months before anyone would even be blamed for the attack.  That certainly wouldn't help the Zionist planners advance their "War on Terror" so it was decided to carry out an "attempted" bombing, like the earlier "shoe bomber," in which the inept bomber would be caught red-handed in the act of committing a terror atrocity.  

If the Underwear Bomber had really intended to destroy the flight, why would he have waited until the plane was making its final descent into the Detroit area before trying to detonate the explosive device?  Why was he so inept in his efforts with an explosive that required a different sort of detonation device?  Why did he seem like a person who had been mind-controlled to carry out the attempted bombing?  What possible motivation can the young son of a wealthy Nigerian banker have to kill innocent people over the skies of Detroit?  He is, after all, a devout Muslim.  Can we expect to get real answers to these questions?

Abdul Mutallab (in red), here in London, is known to be a devout Muslim.  What would be his motive to commit a terror crime against innocent people?  It simply does not make sense.

A group of Republican senators, led by the pro-Israel Republican John McCain (who visited Israel over the weekend of January 9-10) are seeking to transfer the Abdul Mutallab case to a military court.  Why would a pro-Israeli senator like McCain want this young Nigerian tried by a military tribunal?  McCain and others argue that critical questions such as the identities of those who assisted and trained Abdul Mutallab remain unanswered.  Indeed, they are and will probably remain so.  Did he receive funding and support from others, and if so, from whom?  The first question should be whether Abdul Mutallab was really in his right mind or whether he had been subjected to mind-control methods that made him an unwitting Manchurian Candidate.  Eyewitness reports about his appearance and initial responses strongly suggest that he was under some form of mind-control.  Will a trial in a U.S. District Court really get to the bottom of who is behind Abdul Mutallab?


To understand who is behind the Christmas Day bombing attempt one need only understand that the "War on Terror" is a complete Zionist fraud designed to drag the United States and other nations into a global war against Islamic movements seeking social justice in the Middle East and elsewhere.  Across the region there are many Islamic organizations, like the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, which challenge the corrupt dictatorships that oppress their people and prevent real development.  The Mubarak dictatorship in Egypt, for example, is supported and funded with billions of dollars by the U.S. government to maintain a police state that is paid to support Israel while repressing the people of Egypt.  Such arrangements of maintaining political control through corruption are certainly not sustainable for the long term.  

The U.S. war in Afghanistan is supposedly being waged against Al Qaida because of their role in the terror attacks of 9-11, but the actual target has always been the Taliban, an Islamic movement.  Islamic movements of this type are naturally anti-Zionist.  The Israeli planners of the War on Terror seek to inflame passions on both sides to the point that the U.S. war on Islam takes on its own dynamic but that has not yet happened so the Zionist terrorists stoke the fire by creating false-flag terror events like 9-11 - and the attempted bombing of the Delta flight on Christmas Day.

The Mossad, Israel's secret service, has been operating in Yemen since the 1940's.  In 1949, the Mossad arranged for the removal of some 49,000 Yemenite Jews to Israel with the approval of Yemen's leader.  Michael Chertoff's "Mossadnik" mother, Livia Eisen, played a key role in this secret airlift, code-named Operation Magic Carpet, which involved some 380 flights on British and American aircraft.  Today, there are some 360,000 Yemenite Jews living in Israel.

Nearly all of Yemen's 49,000 Jews were taken to Israel in a Mossad operation in 1949-50 called Operation Magic Carpet.

The Israeli Mossad continues to operate in Yemen, as the President of Yemen Ali Abdullah Saleh revealed openly in early October 2008:  "A terrorist cell was arrested five days ago and will be referred to the judicial authorities for its links with the Israeli intelligence services."

The AFP and global press reported that the Israeli "terrorist cell" discovered by Yemeni authorities in 2008 had been involved in a deadly attack against the U.S. embassy in the Yemeni capital the previous month.  President Saleh said the Israeli terror cell operated under the "slogan of Islam."  Sources close to the Yemeni investigation told AFP that Saleh was thought to have been referring to six men rounded up in Sanaa after the 17 September 2008 attack on the U.S. Embassy which left 18 people dead.

An Israeli "Al Qaida" terror cell in Yemen is probably behind the kidnapping and mind-control operation that resulted in the devout Muslim Abdul Mutallab trying to detonate an explosive device on Delta's Northwest Flight 253.  The fact that Abdul Mutallab flew through Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport is a further indication that the Mossad is involved.  Both the Schiphol Airport and Delta Airlines are clients of ICTS (International Consultants on Targeted Security), the Mossad-controlled airport security company that oversaw passenger screening at the airports involved in the 9-11 attacks through its wholly-owned subsidiary Huntleigh USA.  While ICTS Europe is officially headquartered in Amsterdam, its real Mossad management is based in Israel.

Abdul Mutallab bought his tickets in Accra, Ghana, on December 16, eight days before he departed.  Although he flew to Detroit via Nigeria, his homeland, he did not visit or speak with his family.  This suggests that the young devout Muslim was being chaperoned and is simply another victim of a devious Israeli intelligence plot designed to promote the Zionist-managed "War on Terror" and legitimize President Obama's increased U.S. military involvement in Yemen, Afghanistan, and beyond.  We must not allow ourselves to be deceived by this most absurd and evil Israeli terror spectacle.  It is high time for the real culprits behind 9-11 and the false-flag terror of the past decade to be exposed and stopped.
