US Spy Chief Irresponsibly Hypes a Major Terrorist Attack on US Soil Ahead
by Stephen Lendman
9/11 and subsequent attacks on US soil were state-sponsored false flags. Any new ones ahead will be no different. Big Lies repeated ad nauseam claiming otherwise reflect willful deception.
Alleged FBI foiled attacks were phony – innocent victims wrongfully arrested, prosecuted and imprisoned on false charges, Muslims at home and abroad persecuted, vilified and slaughtered by US imperial viciousness.
America’s only enemies are ones it creates. Appearing on CBS’ 60 Minutes last Sunday, CIA director John Brennan lied to millions of viewers, predicting an “inevitabl(e)” ISIS terrorist attack on US soil.
He failed to explain ISIS is a US creation. Why would its fighters attack their paymaster? They owe their existence to US and other foreign support. Without it they’d fade to oblivion.
“I’m expecting (ISIS) to try and put in place the operatives, the materiel, whatever else they need to do, or to incite people, to carry out these attacks, clearly. So I believe their attempts are inevitable,” Brenna ranted, adding:
They’re “trying to provoke a clash between the West and the Muslim world.” Claims about US policy aiming to “take over” Middle East countries are “the furthest thing from the truth.”
It’s hard believing he could boldly lie with a straight face, harder believing anyone buys his deception, hardest not realizing longstanding US imperial policy threatens world peace – raping one independent country after another, stealing their resources, massacring their people.
It’s not at all hard understanding why CBS would air outrageous Big Lies, a longstanding US media scoundrel tradition, part of the corporate media lying machine, supporting what demands denunciation.
Reject official, media-supported, explanations of all reported attacks on US soil at all times with no exceptions – used to hype fear, crack down on fundamental freedoms, justify outlandish military spending to wage endless naked aggression for falsified reasons.
Virtually always, alleged attackers are convenient patsies – notably 9/11 ones, the framed Boston bombers and wrongfully accused San Bernadino husband and wife, in all cases Muslims, falsely blamed for crimes they didn’t commit – the public none the wiser, believing the media-hyped Big Lies they’re fed.
The next time media scoundrels headline an alleged terrorist attack on US soil, know you’re being duped again. 
Reject falsified claims. Don’t fall for government propaganda – Big Lies furthering Washington’s imperial agenda, waging war on humanity at home and abroad, the highest of high crimes.

Terror Talk: Politicians, Former CIA Head, FBI, Homeland Security All Ramp Up Warnings For July 4th

Congressman warns of “terrorists in American basements”

 

Region:

 

It’s a good job no one in the US watches the mainstream news media any more. Any one who did take in the multitude of news shows over the weekend, however, is now most probably convinced that they are about to be attacked any second by armies of terrorists in their own back yard.

Politicians and intelligence officials were paraded out one after the other to harp on about how terrorists hate the freedom of Americans and blah blah blah July the 4th is most likely going to end up in a terrorist attack.

Following attacks in Tunisia, France and Kuwait Friday, the Department of Homeland Security and the FBIissued alerts to local law enforcement and urged Americans to “remain vigilant” for the upcoming Independence Day celebrations.

“They don’t put those statements out that far in advance, unless there’s reason for concern,” said harbinger of doom New York Rep. Peter King in an interview with ABC’s “This Week.”

“I would say there’s probably more concern now than at any time since September 11th.” King added, repeating the same thing he says every time there is any threat of terrorism.

King called ISIS “incomparable” in its ability to reach the “disaffected,” the “deranged” and the “ideologically committed.”

“I mean, it’s no coincidence that you’ve seen a series of arrests here in New York of terrorists over the last week to 10 days. This is not just something that’s happening by coincidence.” King, almost salivating in anticipation, told viewers.

Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas) was wheeled out on “Fox News Sunday” to deliver a similar message.

“There’s a great deal of chatter, a high-volume if you will,” McCaul, the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee said.

McCaul cited a “confluence” of events as pointing to an almost definite terror attack in America. “ISIS spokesman calling for jihad during Ramadan, which is happening right now. You have the one-year anniversary of the caliphate or Islamic State; and now we have the Fourth of July coming up, which is one of the holidays we celebrate that they like to target this sort of thing and these anniversaries.” McCaul urged, throwing in an unsubstantiated claim that the federal government has prevented over 50 terror plots in the past year.

McCaul also intimated to viewers that the internet is at least partly to blame.

“I’m extremely concerned about the way these Syrian ISIS recruiters can use the Internet at lightning speed to recruit followers in the United States with thousands of followers in the United States and then activate them to do whatever they want to do whether it’s military installations, law enforcement or possibly a Fourth of July event parade.” he said.

McCaul added that ISIS ” demonstrates a global threat that they can conduct external operations and they are very savvy at doing that over the Internet.”

Referring to the attacks overseas, McCaul again blamed… the internet – “The idea that they could do this, and now, the external operations potentially into the United States by use of the Internet.” he stated.

McCaul warned that because of… the internet, terrorists are able to get in “homes and in the basements in the United States”.

“This is not bin Laden with courriers now. This is a new generation of terrorists using the Internet in a very savvy way to attack the West and also get in the homes and in the basements in the United States to radicalize individuals and then call them up as sleeper cells to attack Americans.” the Congressman claimed.

In addition to these two clowns, former CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell said Monday that he “wouldn’t be surprised” if there’s a terrorist attack during the 4th of July weekend.

“This one really resonates with me for two reasons,” Morell said. “One is there’s been about 50 people in the last 12 months who have been arrested in the United States for being radicalized by ISIS, wanting to go fight there or wanting to conduct an attack here, so there’s a lot of people out there who are seeing themselves as aligned with ISIS, number one.”

“Number two, you have this ISIS call to arms during Ramadan,” Morell said. “We are right in the middle of Ramadan, call to arms, conduct attacks against our enemies, so I’m worried about this one.”

“I don’t want to tell Americans what to do or what not to do, but…I wouldn’t be surprised if we’re sitting here a week from today talking about an attack over the weekend in the United States,” he told co-host Norah O’Donnell. “That’s how serious this is.”

So remember to enjoy yourselves this 4th of July weekend, but expect the worst… and don’t forget that the internet is to blame for all this.
