C-Span callers hammer home U.S. government’s role in aiding Abdulmutallab

A proponent of the war on terror was left with egg on his face during a recent C-Span appearance when caller after caller hammered home the fact that the underwear bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, was allowed to board Delta flight 253 by the U.S. government.
The victim of this ‘truth bomb’ was Mickey McCarter, a prominent mouthpiece for the military-industrial complex that relies heavily on the manufactured ‘war on terror’ to the tune of billions of dollars every year. McCarter is a journalist specializing in “homeland security matters” and has also worked for government agencies like the US Navy’s Bureau of Naval Personnel and the Defense Contract Management Agency.
After discussing the recent conviction of the underwear bomber with no mention of the fact that he boarded the plane only with the aid of the U.S. government, McCarter faced a barrage of callers who set him straight. The first caller immediately drew attention to Flight 253 passenger Kurt Haskell, an attorney who witnessed a well dressed Indian man force airport officials to let Abdulmutallab board the plane despite the fact that he had no passport and was on a terror watchlist.
“Why would a CIA agent….get that guy on the plane,” the caller asked, to which McCarter responded by claiming, “I am not familiar with the story,” before erroneously claiming that Abdulmutallab “raised no alarm”.
The notion that McCarter, who bills himself as a terror expert, has no idea about Kurt Haskell’s testimony, FBI confirmation of the fact, in addition to media reports concerning how AbdulMutallab was helped on the plane by a well-dressed man, over two years after it was initially revealed, is dubious to say the least.
After a second caller again references Haskell’s testimony and makes the connection between the underwear bomber plot and the TSA’s invasive groping policy, he is cut off, before a third caller discusses how the event created the perfect pretext for the introduction of naked body scanners, which just happened to make a lot of money for security officials like Michael Chertoff who were heavily invested in them at the time.
This episode again underscores the fact that – as Hillary Clinton bemoaned last year – we are winning the infowar. Informed Americans in growing numbers are successfully waking up their fellow citizens to the fact that the war on terror is a manufactured hoax wherein intelligence agencies recruit patsies and dupes to carry out attacks which are then used to advance the agenda of the military-industrial complex.
