    DID MI5 DROP THE BALL? The storied and highly respected intelligence agency of the United Kingdom seems to have overlooked a few obvious clues that could have prevented the recent carnage in Manchester. When a popular entertainer’s concert ends, upwards of 20,000 people are going to leave the venue in a crush of humanity, albeit more or less orderly. The predatory fiend, Salman Ramadan Abedi, laid in wait in the foyer of the stadium, knowing that this throng would necessarily have to pass in close proximity to him. These folks would slowly move to train stations, bus terminals, etc., where...
  • Manchester Bomber ‘Slips Down the Pecking Order’ With Citizenry Left On Their Own

    The FBI and MI5 would be more honest if they admitted to American and British populations: When it comes to the horrors of Islamist terrorism, you’re on your own FBI ‘warned MI5 in January that the Manchester bomber was planning an attack on Britain’. So claim the mainstream media. The take-down-Trump-obsessed FBI flagged Britain’s MI5 that Manchester bomber Salman Abedi was planning a terrorist attack on Britain.
  • Terror arrests made after 'significant plot to attack UK is disrupted'

    Counter-terrorism investigators have made six arrests after disrupting what they believe was a “significant plot” to attack the UK that was influenced by Islamic State. Material recovered from an address raided in Derby has been initially assessed as being consistent with that needed to make homemade explosives, the Guardian understands. The arrests were intelligence led but past cases have shown that initial assumptions among investigators are sometimes incorrect because materials for making homemade explosives can also have innocent uses. It followed an operation by the domestic security service MI5 and counter-terrorism police. Counter-terrorism officials believe they have disrupted three attacks...

    British spies will be cleared in a number of cases of alleged complicity in the torture of detainees abroad, the BBC understands. Scotland Yard and the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) are to issue a joint statement on Thursday. It follows an investigation into the conduct of officers from MI5 and MI6. Although it is expected that no charges will be brought in some cases it is understood the statement will contain other significant information. The BBC's home affairs correspondent, Danny Shaw says the fact that the statement has been prepared by the DPP, together with Scotland Yard, is highly...

    A Pakistani man was sentenced to 40 years in prison Tuesday for his role in a failed al Qaeda bomb plot targeting sites in Europe and the United states, including the New York City subway system. Abid Naseer, 29, is the eighth defendant to be charged in this case, CBS News' Paula Reid reports. Prosecutors say the planned attack was directed and coordinated with senior Al Qaeda leaders in Pakistan and also involved other targets in Europe. "I know you're not what I'd say, for any lack of a better word, a 'typical' criminal. Not in any sense of the...

    A bomb that downed a Russian plane in Egypt last month had been placed in the aircraft's main cabin not in the cargo compartment as reported earlier, the daily Kommersant said on Wednesday citing an unnamed source. The newspaper, citing a source close to the investigation of the crash, said the epicenter of the explosion appeared to have been at the rear of the cabin near the tail section. "According to a preliminary version, the bomb could have been laid under the passenger seat by the window. Its operation has led to the destruction of the frame and depressurization of...

    Scotland Yard has said the security services will be reviewing the terror threat level to the UK, while policing in public areas may stepped up today in the wake of Friday's terror attacks in Paris. Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that the current threat level to Britain was at its second highest - severe - meaning that an attack is "highly likely". But it could be raised later, after intelligence is considered and the emerging picture from Paris is discussed at the government's Cobra emergency committee, he suggested. David Cameron will chair the Cobra...

    The Head of MI5 has warned of a Paris style atrocity by Islamic terrorist groups taking place in Britain. Speaking at the Royal United Services Institute, Andrew Parker, the Director General of the Security Services, said extremists were “trying to direct terrorist attacks in the UK and elsewhere from Syria”. And he said that MI5 had “stopped three UK terrorist plots in recent months alone” where deaths would have certainly resulted but warned “Although we and our partners try our utmost we know that we cannot hope to stop everything” and spoke of his concern at the “growing gap” between...
  • Isis: a CIA-Mossad-MI5 creation?

    The Philippine Inquirer ^ | 10/20/2014 | Bernie V. Lopez
    The term “conspiracy theory” refers to a covert geopolitical grand plan that cannot be proven (hence a theory) but can be discerned (meaning there is “evidence”). It is like smelling a rat that cannot be found. When the “evidence” becomes overwhelming, the theory begins to move into a gray area toward reality. It is therefore up to readers to make their own conclusions. The “theory” that the Islamic State of Iran and Syria (Isis) was created by the US-Israeli-UK triumvirate is all over the Internet. The supposed grand plan hits two birds with one stone: to pit Arab against Arab...

    They want people to spy on the neighbors. Why? So they'll be charged with racist-islamophobia-anti-muslim-bigotry? The London beheader was on British intel's radar for two years; what good did that do? The Brits arrested a couple of people for "anti-Islamic" tweets in the wake of the beheading. What rational person would come forward to turn in a devout Muslim? Scores of young non-Muslim British girls who were raped and sold like meat by Muslim gangs repeatedly went to law enforcement and the law did nothing. EDL members protest against Islamic supremacism and get arrested. EDL leaders Tommy Robinson and Kev...

    The U.S. thwarted a bomb plot by al Qaeda's Yemeni branch aimed at bringing down a jetliner with a more advanced version of an underwear bomb used in a failed 2009 Christmas Day attempt, officials said Monday. The Central Intelligence Agency, working with foreign security services, was able to seize the bomb—which they believed was intended for a U.S.-bound flight—before the would-be suicide bomber was able to move ahead with his plot, officials said. Because the plot was headed off in its early stages, officials said the effort never represented a threat to Americans or to U.S. allies, nor did...

    Do you recall a time, a few years back, when the media wouldn't shut up about a supposed outing of an agent? Yup, the left and the media were pissed. I bet you could just imagine the firestorm of coverage that would result if instead of a former Secretary of State leaking a name it was our President....right? Guess not: Just a week ago the establishment media was aflutter with news that a CIA double-agent had thwarted a new type of underwear bomb attack targeting U.S. flights in a plot devised by al-Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula.

    White Muslim convert Richard Dart and a former police community support officer were among six people arrested for allegedly plotting a terror attack in Britain.Richard Dart, who was radicalised by the cleric Anjem Choudary, was held following police raids in east and west London. A former PCSO and two of his brothers, who were living just over a mile from the Olympic site in Stratford, were also among those detained during the police and MI5 operation to prevent a suspected terror assault. One of the brothers was Tasered by officers. Counter-terrorism police had first searched their home last November. The...

    Just a week ago the establishment media was aflutter with news that a CIA double-agent had thwarted a new type of underwear bomb attack targeting U.S. flights in a plot devised by al-Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula. But as the week progressed, a developing bombshell story got buried under President Obama’s gay marriage announcement. Not only is the supposed CIA asset not a CIA asset at all, but the entire operation was exposed prematurely and the double-agent’s life was immediately threatened by an intelligence leak that very well may have come out of the White House for political gain. As...

    Here's a disturbing update to last week's amazing story about the U.S. mole who infiltrated al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula and thwarted an airliner attack with a more sophisticated underwear bomb. Someone in Washington whose boss stood to gain from an election year story about alert intelligence operatives successfully protecting American voters at great personal risk leaked the heroic story to the Associated Press. The AP held the story until Obama administration sources said the CIA operative was safe. But, it turns out, the mole was not a CIA operative. The Obama administration had nothing to do with the...

    U.S. and Yemeni officials say the supposed would-be bomber at the heart of an al-Qaida airliner plot was actually an informant working for the CIA. The revelation, first reported by The Los Angeles Times, shows how the CIA was able to get its hands on a sophisticated underwear bomb well before an attack was set in motion. Officials say the informant was working for the CIA and Saudi Arabian intelligence when he was given the bomb. He then turned the device over to authorities. Officials say the informant is safely out of Yemen. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity...
