Undersecretary for management at the State Department, Patrick F. Kennedy, told Congress that the State Department wanted to keep crotch bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab out of the U.S., but that intelligence agencies insisted that Abdulmutallab be let into the country.
Supposedly it was because blocking him would have blown a larger investigation. But wait, it appears al Qaeda had been penetrated at high levels years ago by the US and we could have killed bin Laden and didn’t. Plus, what’s up with all the shadowy ties between terrorists and CIA, etc.? This and much more, copiously documented at Zero Hedge.
But really folks, ZH is just bat-shit crazy with conspiracy theories coming out the gazoo, isn’t it? It’s like saying Lee Harvey Oswald defected to the USSR, married the niece of a secret police colonel, said boo hoo, I want to come back home, and was allowed to, no questions asked and could wander around freely.
Oh wait, that happened, didn’t it….
(Except, bwa ha ha, maybe the Lee Harvey Oswald who came back wasn’t the one who left. Now that’s a conspiracy theory.
Frankly folks, I haven’t a clue what to believe any more. Our government and politicians routinely lie to us. More than a few climate change scientists have been caught in evasions serious enough that it has badly damaged the credibility of global warming in general. Our financial system has been shown to be more corrupt, venal, and compromised than even hardcore Marxists dared believe, even as it now wobbles scarily above the precipice.
