Top 10 Reasons US Media Isn't Covering the Israeli Role in the Christmas Terrorist Story

In a recent article, Patrick Martin posed the question of why the American media is silent on the Israeli role in the Christmas-terrorist NW Flight 253 story. He begins his article thusly:

16 January 2010Nearly a week ago, on January 10, the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz carried a news article by correspondent Yossi Melman pointing out the role of an Israeli security firm, International Consultants on Targeted Security (ICTS), in the failed attempt to detonate a bomb on board Northwest Airlines Flight 253.

ICTS subsidiaries I-SEC and PI are responsible for security screening of passengers at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport, where accused suicide bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab boarded the Detroit-bound jet. The company uses screening technology to profile passengers and identify security risks, based on the experience of the Israeli intelligence services. Former El Al Airlines and Shin Bet security personnel established ICTS in 1982 to market their expertise, and many US airlines use their services or technology.

According to Ha’aretz, Abdulmutallab was screened by ICTS, but the security agents failed to identify him as a threat, despite ample evidence.

“Even if US intelligence failed and the name of the Nigerian passenger was not pinpointed as a suspect for the airline, he should have stirred the suspicion of the security officers,” the newspaper wrote. “His age, name, illogical travel route, high-priced ticket purchased at the last minute, his boarding without luggage (only a carry on) and many other signs should have been sufficient to alert the security officers and warrant further examination of the suspect. However, the security supervisor representing I-SEC and PI allowed him to get on the flight.”

The Israeli connection has been widely reported in the Israeli and European press. In addition to Ha’aretz, the Jerusalem Post noted the role of ICTS in Amsterdam in an article December 27, and Israeli television interviewed a company director, who confirmed that Abdulmutallab had been given a security screening.

Reports subsequently appeared in newspapers and Web news sources in Britain, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain and Italy. But there has been nothing in the main American media outlets—nothing in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal or any other major daily newspaper, and nothing on any of the television or cable news networks.

The contrast between the press treatment in Europe and in America is an indication that the role of ICTS is not merely an unimportant detail. Clearly, the word is being passed to keep quiet on the subject, either in the form of a direct order from the US security services, or indirectly through the system of media self-censorship that operates no less effectively for being “voluntary.”

What reason could there be to conceal the role of ICTS? The reader can finish reading Martin’s article here.

The reader can read the most probable TOP 10 REASONS WHY US MEDIA ISN’T COVERING THE ISRAELI ROLE IN THE CHRISTMAS-TERRORIST STORY here:

10. We’re fighting a war on terror; we need to focus on the terrorists, not criticize our friends.

9. Too complicated; Americans wouldn’t understand it.

8. It would damage peoples’ confidence in airport security throughout the world where Israeli security is employed.

7. American Irish-Catholic writers are reluctant to shed light on a story that would embarrass their co-religionists.

6. We don’t have any pre-canned stereotype material portraying Israelis as dumb asses.

5. The Irish-Catholic mafia owns the US media.

4. Jay Leno, David Letterman and other late-night comedians don’t do Israeli jokes.

3. To avoid embarrassing the small but inordinately influential Irish-Catholic community in this country.

2. Israel is our daddy.

1. Doesn’t fit the war on terror plot.

The US needs to have a 'legitimate' reason in the eyes of its public in order to send US forces to "defend" Yemen from "Al Qaeda"...

The "Christmas bomber" story is aimed at gaining legitimacy for US/Israeli policy and not for raising questions about Israeli roles in security at airports or elsewhere... and in cover-up or false flags...

The US (+ mainstream media) is trying to direct the discussions and reporting that takes place in relation to that well timed "Christmas" event... or else it wouldn't be able to make use of it as planned and desired...

In the Middle East, we have been watching the war between Saudi Arabia (US puppet) and Yemen escalate those past 2 month or more... and we watched the Yemenis complain that the US air force participated with the Saudis in bombing civilians... Many things are hidden from the US public... with the end objective of getting US public support for more US military intervention in the Middle East.

Here is US army strategy:

US Army War College Quarterly

There will be no peace. At any given moment for the rest of our lifetimes, there will be multiple conflicts in mutating forms around the globe. Violent conflict will dominate the headlines, but cultural and economic struggles will be steadier and ultimately more decisive. The de facto role of the US armed forces will be to keep the world safe for our economy and open to our cultural assault. To those ends, we will do a fair amount of killing.

Can it be any clearer? The role of the US armed forces is to keep the route of oil, safe for the US... even if that means occupying or "interfering" in other countries.

Look at Yemen's geographic location... Search for maps of "Bab-el-Mandeb" or strait/Gate of Tears...

The US is not just 'protecting' Israeli intelligence..., it is protecting its 'hijacked' self..

Could it have been an inside job. How likely is it that anyone with half a brain would let a person get on an intercontinental flight without luggage, one way ticket and paid for in cash. With these three conditions I would have stopped anyone, even if their name was Smith or Jones. Not only that, but we even have now the names of late Sen. Edward Kennedy, Cat Stevens, and even the name of 8 years old New Jersy boy on the terror "watch list"



It is hard not but to conclude that this is a false flag. According to Wikipedia definintion of the term,

False flag operations are covert operations which are designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities. The name is derived from the military concept of flying false colors; that is, flying the flag of a country other than one's own.


Prime example: Ausualt on the USS Liberty, Le Bella discoutique attack in Berlin, Israel prior knowlegde of the bombing of US Marine baracks in Beirut, and its refusal to share the information with the US, and the sudden deportation of many detained Mossad agents to Israel fellowing 9/11. Those were the same agents who were shadowing 9/11 hijacker allover the country. The detained Mossad agents with explosives, box cutters who were in their way to Washington Bridge, hours after 9/11 attack. What about the several Israeli spies who were cought filming the burning towers, and giving high five on the top of their van. The same one who bluntly stated on Israeli tv,"we were there to decument the even!"

What event? All those spies' testimonies are higly guarded secret.

What happened to the nicely dressed man at Amersterdam airport, who introduce the alleged bomber as Sudanese refugee without a passport?

Who was the passenger who was vedio taping abourd the flight non stop?

Why there no mention in our free press, and no hard question being asked about the second passenger of flight 253 who was arresed the Detriot metro airport? Inquirying mind wants to know!

Remember, the father of the alleged bomber has tipped our embassay in Neigeria 6 month in advance about his son, so did the British intellegence. Helloooooooo, who is on guard? Who is protecting our airports and flights?

It is the same people who allowed the alleged bomber aboard flight 253. The same one who allowed Richard Reed, the shoe bomber to fly to Israel from Amesterdam in July, 2001. Just five month before he was on his way again aboard another flight into the US.



Unlike Israeli and Europian press, our free press in the US are acoplice by their silence in this very issue, not to mention those who inflitrateed all of our government agencies at every level.
