It’ not about liberal or conservative, it’s about control of what the public thinks.

Fox News reported yesterday that there was no power source for the detonators. Haven’t heard it again.

Youtube confirms? That’s like me saying that Free Republic confirms.

I think what they were trying to say is that YOUTUBE is saying that the Jon Stewart Rally wasn’t a bomb.

Dilemma:

—It is easy to believe that terrorists would have done what has been alleged.

—It is easy to believe that Obama would lie to the American people about anything, period.

This story has no bearing. Obama said terrorist after proclaiming Overseas Contingency Operation. I guess a Domestic Contingency Operation can be somewhat befuddled. He is an idiot, and anyone who supports this Marxist is an idiot.

Well, youtube can’t confirm anything but something else is strange.

These “viable” bombs were supposedly “set to explode in midair” over american cities. That was the story yesterday. But we know they didn’t explode.

Today the reports are that they had very different triggering mechanisms, none of which had to do with altitude or anything like that. One was a timer, another a cell phone trigger.

So, every report coming out betrays the lies of the last report. None of them can be believed.

And early this morning there was an alert that 24 more were being searched for, but not another word about them.

Who made up this farce anyway?

I have no clue. If I was a terrorist, I wouldn't bother with "dry runs."

But that's not the point I'm trying to make, here. I'm just saying that this video is the product of some snot-nosed kid in his mom's basement, not the BBC . . . even if he uses some BBC material.

To claim that the "source" is the "BBC" simply is retarded.

If you look at the “so called bomb” is looks lame as hell and almost as if it were simply ripped out of the packaging for Ink cartridges.

It didn’t look like anything but if it did, it was pretty amateurish for it’s craft work.

I appreciate how cynical this sounds but my first reaction to this is that we provided fake bombs to yet another terrorist then decided to score political points by making a news story by “catching” the bombs on the airplanes.

Now, especially since zer0 “heard” about it at 10:15PM the night before, plus all the news outlets had pictures of the “bombs” ready for his speech, and especially now that the reports are much more confused than they should be, I’m just wondering what kind of out of control cluster-puff is going on. It has also been reported that there were no power supplies on the bombs. Isn’t this something that zer0 should have known when he called them “viable?”

The whole thing stinks of incompetent and corrupt global politics.

well, we may never know. then again, we may. all I know is I’m cynical enough to be skeptical of anything that makes obama look “competent.” ABC Radio moron Mark Simone remarked that “everyone appears to have done good work on this!” — coupled with the reports of middle-of-the-night meetings with the president — that’s when the spin started making me nauseous.

My newspaper confirmed that as well. From all of the articles I have read, this was NOT a hoax at all. I don’t know where the “hoax” stuff is coming from.

I said in the beginning, this was a hyped story. When real Islamist attacks happen, Obamamedia/Islamamedia hide it, cover up the facts.

The fact this story was so overblown, told me it was a hoax, an October surprise. Obama ‘knew’ the night before, and yet the planes were allowed to land in the U.S.

Enuf said.

Exactly right.

I have no cable, no sat, no fiber, no broadcast and had no idea the story was being overblown. Still realized it was fake just from the facts reported on freerepublic. Attacking Chicago Jewish establishments a few days before an election where Obama is seen as a Muslim sympathizer and has an historic low approval rating. Yeah. Right.

The story keeps changing, but most of us think it was a “dry run” to see if these type of packages could get through security....and that the plan was to send similar packages during Christmas time, when millions of presents are carried in planes.

You see, up to now, they have been inspecting passengers luggage a lot more than packages. It’s also possible that they thought such packages would go on commercial Passenger planes, not realizing UPS and FedEx have their own planes.
