How can you be deaf with ears like that?
Jussayin’. I’m not sure what it means in total. Definitely more than one thing though.
Getting the possibly weird out of the way first:
(No, ‘Dzhokhar’ was not among my ‘D’ names).
Also, CNN email alert:
The third victim killed in the bombings was a graduate student at Boston University, a spokesman for the school said. The school declined to identify the victim further.
Turned out (again) to be an Asian student. And to think I might have run off to New York or Boston to try to find out firsthand.
Of course two data points only make a straight line, not a pattern.
Moving on from the mind games or whatever to the amateur armchair analysis. I’ll just say mostly what’s already been said.
It’s odd that Chechens do this and in the US. They don’t have quite the same history where jihad and martryism is concerned and most of their beef is with Russia.
The throat injury is so damn symbolic and/or in a way “convenient” that that is also strange.
While I would not call it evidence (who wants to think that their sons or nephews are capable of this?) both the father (in Chechnya or nearby I think) and the aunt (Toronto) say that the brothers were set up.
“Funny” that a government official (missed her name and department) said that the ’09 underwear bomber’s father couldn’t believe his son attempted what he apparently did. But wasn’t he the one who went repeatedly to the US embassy to warn them well ahead of time of Christmas 2009 about his son? Weird comment if that’s the case. Subcontractor missed his name even though he was in their database, was what I recall and the father was the source.
Also, according to Hannity on his radio show (don’t ask… guess I wanted to hear what the specific narrative coming out of the radical right might be when it was left on for me), the elder brother, the deceased one, Tamerlan, owned a radical pro-Al Qaeda website.
And yet he wasn’t being watched? See alternate reason for quote at top. You’ve gotta be kidding me. Too busy f***ing with innocent Americans, I suppose. Too much energy spent squashing whistleblowers and trying to find something to justify the invoices and the budget requests. Yeah, that must be it. *
The ricin letter sending, performer by an American Elvis impersonator, came right on the heels of the bombing. Eerily similar to 9/11 followed by the Amerithrax attacks but with less lethal effect.
Also note that this event derailed the immigration reform law vote. See how terror as distraction gets used? Who benefits? Grassley said publicly it will affect the vote. And they were close to a compromise before the bombs went off.
And it is being used (thanks to both Hannity and Dennis Miller for the info) to argue for looser gun laws or at least status quo. The idea, being trapped in your home with an allegedly armed and dangerous terrorist running around loose in your neighborhood. That was the Rightwing media’s narrative for what happened in Watertown. They got some folks who live there to talk on the radio during their “lockdown.”
You want–no, need–assault weapons to protect your home. That’s the message. And must be at least partially responsible for the failed gun control legislation (beyond the attempt to avoid filibuster by requiring a 60+ vote and the portions written by lobbyists) even if it came after. A post-vote excuse.
Too convenient on timing and narrative to not be more than a little suspicious. I’ve already explained the other reasons for it (money and affect on other policies), how it’s done (drugs, harassment, subliminals, PSYOPs), the historical precedents (MK/Ultra and false-flag ops like NORTHWOODS), the desire to lie to the populace (the intro of the CIA’s Guerilla Warfare Manual and one purpose of DoD’s INFORMATION OPERATION ROADMAP), etc. and how that all points to something like GLADIO being conducted on US soil. Given the international nature of Organized Stalking, which I believe to be partly related largely as training for those who make these kinds of things happen, things would seem to point to a multinational organization like NATO. It all kinds of fits (though note also that Russia and China undoubtedly engage in similar activities against their citizens). I don’t see the need to repeat all of that in detail.
And note how fiscal conservatism in this country only applies to programs and policies that don’t hand money over directly to defense, security and intelligence contractors, that don’t perpetuate war, fear, xenophobia. If it’s health or education related, we can’t afford it. If it kills, we not only can spend money we don’t even have, we must, or the sky will fall.
That said, it bothers me more than a little that these events get used to try to achieve things like gun reform instead of the programs simply being shut down. I guess you aim for what you think that you can achieve. That is aiming too low, IMO.
* Likely some sarcasm in that paragraph.
