Chertoff and Gonzo suggested, in no uncertain terms, that this was a Al Qaida action based in the UK.
Let’s look at the “facts” as disclosed so far.
a) all 21 arrested were domestic Brit citizens.
b) they were well organized
c) they were working in concert
d) they planned to combine two fluids to make an explosive.
e) they were targetting US-bound flights.
– – – – –
And from this they come up with Al Qaida? Exceuse me, but bullshit.
a) if all were brit citizens, how do we know that they weren’t planning to take revenge on Britney Spears or Paris Hilton, or worse, McDonalds? Anyone want to bet that over time the 21 will decrease to 10, then 5, and after november, 1 or 2? Of course, being domestic BRIT citizens is the most powerful reason to call them Al Qaida.
b) What? ONLY AQ knows how to talk, plan and coordinate? Assuming this attack was going to occur, you have to be a Wahhabi trained muslim in order to read more than one plane schedule at any time? Since when does organization equate to muslim terrorist cells? If that were the case, Karl Rove’s election plans could also fall under that definition.
c) Working in concert? LIke a sports team? impossible for anyone other than a Saudi trained in Afghanistan or Pakistan. absolutely impossible.
d) duh. Take 4 parts glycerine. (the purer, the better) Get ice from the stew for your vodka. cool it off. Take 2 parts Nitric acid. Take 1 part Sulphuric acid. Mix carefully within banging, or friction. The globular stuff can be washed off with water in the lavoratory. Once you collect it, and rinse off the sulphuric and other liquids, you en up with nitroglycerin.
Nitro explodes with great force in small amounts. In fact, the warmer it gets, the more unstable it is and the more likely to blow. You can mix this in your garage in 15 minutes.
but of course, only Al Qaida would have the “techincal” knowledge to mix two or more liquids to create “an explosive”.
This smells. Something is rotten about this whole event. I simply cannot trust our government anymore.
