google news pointed to a warning from dept of homeland security UPDATE YOUR WINDOWS against attack. As if DoHs did not scare the shit out of Fox News viewers with the liquid bombers scare wednesday. the ABC story has a pop up window my pop up blocker is blocking! and I go to see what windows update has on offer during this era of scare. this is what microsoft has, a critical update “The Windows Genuine Advantage Notification tool notifies you if your copy of Windows is not genuine. If your system is found to be a non-genuine, the tool will help you obtain a licensed copy of Windows”, so I get a tool from MS to prove I am a licence holder if not it will “help” obtain a copy? perhaps it will contact the local US embassy too? lets hope NATO use use google earth to locate the embassy not like the attack they launched on the Chinese in Belgrade.
back to liquid bomb plot the 24 arrested since wednesday, the UK police are still talking to or about 23 of the 24. One citizen was released without charge on Friday. 19 of the 24 were named on the Bank of England list even though these people have not been charged.
I often slag off Fox News, but one of their reporters speaking on its UK sister station Sky News asked the following targeted question, if Bush & ‘Yo Blair’ discussed this liquid bomb plot weeks ago and there was a MAJOR surveillance operation that had been in place for 2-3 months, why did they wait till wednesday to stop liquids in hand luggage. the nature of the alert on Wednesday was not because they had just learned about liquid but believed that monies moving in accounts meant that cells were primed to act. So I deduct that THEY Blair Bush DoHs and MI5 all knew about the liquid plot but decided not to tell the airports to stop this practice. Why? because wednesday was a stunt (there may be grains of truth in the plot, I believe there ARE all kinds of on going ‘security’ observations to threats at all times). How do you get the backing of the people? tell them the truth? tell them about the likelihood of all out civil war in Iraq? tell them about the body bags returning from war? tell them that a further delay allowed Israel to bomb Lebanon for 32+ days? no, scare the shit out of them with the assistance of the TV industry. Fair play to CNN who have not taken their eye off the ball.Was there a liquid bomb plot pre 9/AUG/2006 ? Absolut-ely
Did security in the 51st state of the USA do anything to alert the public of this threat pre 9/AUG/2006 ? No
