“False Flag” Flying in Times Square

Not quite one week ago, Police in New York City were notified almost immediately of a “suspicious car” that had just been parked in a “no standing zone”. Smoke was soon seen coming from the car and a few “pops” were heard. A bomb squad was then called in to “disable” a”crude explosive device” of propane tanks, a gas can, fireworks and 100 pounds of fertilizer. (But unlike the ammonium nitrate grade fertilizer that has been used in terror attacks including the Oklahoma City bombing, NYPD spokesman Paul Browne says this fertilizer would not have caused a massive explosion.)

Surveillance cameras were used to track a man changing his shirt and looking in the general direction of the car. However, this man was not the suspect. Instead police later arrest a man from Pakistan after he boarded a flight to Dubai. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano refuses to say how the suspect, Faisal Shahzad, was able to board the flight if he was on the no-fly list. Yet 4yr old children are subjected to intense searches for having the same name as someone on the list and the DHS issues reports warning of people opposed to big government. But I digress.

Stephen Lendman of OpEdNews writes,

“Mayor Michael Bloomberg claimed “We were very lucky. We avoided what could have been a very deadly event.”

For much of the evening, Midtown New York, from 43rd – 48th streets, was closed, heightening fear reported for hours on cable news shows, including statements by Bloomberg, Governor David Paterson, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly and Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne, saying the bomb “appeared (to be) in the process of detonating, but it malfunctioned.”

Good luck or something else? We’ve seen this too often not to be suspicious. This one, like others, has all the earmarks of a false flag, more likely given its coverage and location in Times Square on Saturday night, followed by a May 2 video saying the Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility.

Who could imagine they had a branch office in New York, and no one even noticed. At least that’s the impression from media disinformation, hyped to spread fear and prepare the public for what’s to come, perhaps something much worse.”

When I first saw reports of the “Times Square car bomb” I thought, “false flag”. I’m not sure if the government will use this incident to get support for more CCTV cameras or if they’re trying to get support for a military intervention of some sort in Pakistan. We already know that politicians in this country like to spy on people, as seen with NSA, FISA, red light cameras, and more. But they won’t be happy until they can follow you everywhere you go. After all, it’s for your own safety. For example, the UK has approximately 1 camera for every 14 people, but that didn’t stop a subway bombing in 2007. Someone told me recently they liked the cameras because “they stop crime.” I refuted, “no they don’t.” To which he conceded, “but they catch the criminals faster.”

This is a perfect example of what Ben Franklin warned about, “Those who would give up Essential Liberty, to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety”

Lendman concludes,

“As long as imperial ambitions and rogue agencies like CIA and their foreign counterparts exist, false flag operations will be commonplace, the May 1 New York one the latest example, and maybe a forerunner of what’s to come – another 9/11 some believe, far worse than the first one, perhaps involving a nuclear incident in a US city. Then using it as a pretext for more war and to divert attention from America’s deepening economic crisis, likely to erupt in protests because of Washington’s indifference to millions affected.”
