Cover-up? Fertiliser plant allegedly stored '270 tonnes of ammonium nitrate'

West, Texas explosion
The fertilizer plant that exploded on Wednesday, obliterating part of a small Texas town and killing at least 14 people, had last year been storing 1,350 times the amount of ammonium nitrate that would normally trigger safety oversight by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Yet a person familiar with DHS operations said the company that owns the plant, West Fertilizer, did not tell the agency about the potentially explosive fertilizer as it is required to do, leaving one of the principal regulators of ammonium nitrate - which can also be used in bomb making - unaware of any danger there.

Fertilizer plants and depots must report to the DHS when they hold 400 lb (180 kg) or more of the substance. Filings this year with the Texas Department of State Health Services, which weren't shared with DHS, show the plant had 270 tons of it on hand last year.

A U.S. congressman and several safety experts called into question on Friday whether incomplete disclosure or regulatory gridlock may have contributed to the disaster.

A U-Haul truck packed with the substance mixed with fuel oil exploded to raze the Oklahoma federal building in 1995.
Or so the official story claims. The fact of the matter is that such a bomb could not have knocked out the support columns in the Alfred P. Murrah building.Once again a mainstream media report goes out of its way to 'catapult the propaganda' by connecting the West, Texas explosion to the Oklahoma City bombing.

A Noble Lie: The Oklahoma City Bombing of 1995

Israeli-riddled FBI uses proxy information to blame Muslims for Boston terror

Tamerlan Tsarnaev died in a hail of gunfire Thurs night. His wounded nineteen year old brother Dzhokhar eluded hundreds of police, FBI and ATF agents by hiding in a backyard boat all day while slowly bleeding to death.
When curfew was lifted and the homeowner went out to check on his beloved boat, he spotted blood on the ladder and a 'body' inside. What could have been the end of key part of this story with his death, may have found a new beginning.

We had been praying for a live capture to have some chance of learning what really happened and why there have been so many disturbing aspects to the whole tragedy. Not the least of these is how a major event like this with a fortune being spent on security could allow two kettle bombs to be walked in and planted.

Let us pick up the story from Thursday when the FBI finally released their main suspect photos. This produced an ID on them in seven hours. After seeing their faces on TV and the Internet it was time for the brothers to get out of town. The expected shoot out was inevitable and quite violent Thursday evening.

The owner of a carjacked Mercedes was miraculously released by the brothers thirty minutes afterward, and is the luckiest man to be alive in Boston today. Media reports claim the brothers told the owner they had done the bombing, but he mysteriously was absent from the airwaves today despite his story being an obvious huge audience draw. Hmmmmm, I wonder why?

The MIT police officer shot to death inside of his car was less fortunate. But could his death have been avoided through better police work? And I ask this not to be cruel, but for a good reason.

The internet media was flooded on Monday with the high resolution photos showing many among the finish line crowd wearing large backpacks which could have concealed kettle bombs. The Intel support community was expecting a request of the public to help identify the innocent backpackers to quickly narrow down the perpetrator target list for DHS to concentrate on.

Many felt that this could have shaved a day or two off identifying the brothers, catching them sooner and maybe having two live witnesses to help us dig down to the truth of what happened.

After Obama shuns probe, bipartisan panel finds "indisputable" evidence U.S. tortured under Bush

An independent bipartisan task force has concluded that it is "indisputable" the United States engaged in torture and the George W. Bush administration bore responsibility. The 11-member Task Force on Detainee Treatment was convened by The Constitution Project after President Obama chose not to support a national commission to investigate the counterterrorism programs. It was co-chaired by Asa Hutchinson, a former Republican congressman from Arkansas, NRA consultant and undersecretary of the Department of Homeland Security under President George W. Bush.

The report concludes that never before in U.S. history had there been "the kind of considered and detailed discussions that occurred after 9/11 directly involving a president and his top advisers on the wisdom, propriety and legality of inflicting pain and torment on some detainees in our custody." While the report focused largely on the Bush administration after 9/11, it also criticizes a lack of transparency under Obama. We speak with Laura Pitter, counterterrorism adviser at Human Rights Watch. [includes rush transcript]

Hysterical America: Man detained by TSA agents for trying to bring sandwich called "the bomb" on plane

Think twice about what food you bring to the airport.

Jason Cruz was at New York's JFK International Airport last Thursday. He was scheduled to fly from New York to Los Angeles. The flight from New York to LA is a long one, so Cruz understandably grabbed some food before boarding the plane. He went to a local Astoria deli and grabbed his sandwich of choice, which is nicknamed "The Bomb" because of its explosive flavor.

As it turns out, bringing something called "The Bomb" to an airport isn't the best idea.

At the airport, Cruz was talking to his friend Matthew Okumoto while waiting to pass through security. Referring to his sandwich, Cruz turned to his friend and said he wanted to bring "The Bomb" aboard the plane.

Reporter asks White House if U.S. airstrikes that kill Afghan civilians qualify as 'terrorism'

Matthew Keys, the social media editor at Reuters, posted audio of a reporter asking White House Press Secretary Jay Carney if U.S. bombings that kill innocent civilians in Afghanistan constitute an "act of terror" given the labeling of the Boston Marathon bombing as "terrorism". She specifically refers to a U.S. airstrike earlier this month that killed 11 children, just the latest in a seemingly endless line of Afghan civilian deaths at the hands of the U.S. government.

Carney completely dodged the questions, pointing instead to the 9/11 terrorist attacks to justify U.S. bombings in Afghanistan. After a long-winded answer excusing U.S. conduct, Carney concludes, " we take great care in the prosecution of this war."

Tell me, does this look like "great care" to you?

The lifeless bodies of Afghan children lay on the ground before their funeral ceremony, after a NATO airstrike killed several Afghan civilians, including ten children during a fierce gun battle with Taliban militants in Shultan, Shigal district, Kunar, eastern Afghanistan, Sunday, April 7, 2013.

Symbolic Universe - Boston, Waco, Oklahoma, Revolution

The Branch Davidian compound ablaze near Waco on April 19th, 1993
Today is April 19th. Today is the 20th anniversary of the dreadful end of the Waco Siege and Massacre, when Janet Reno and Bill Clinton cleared Federal agents to set fire to the Branch Davidians' compound in Waco, Texas, killing all 76 men, women and children inside.

Today is also the 18th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing, when the Alfred P. Murrah Federal building in downtown Oklahoma City was blown up, killing 168 people. The blast was so powerful that 324 buildings within a sixteen-block radius were destroyed or damaged, 86 cars were burned, and glass shattered in 258 nearby buildings. Timothy McVeigh was sentenced to death for his role in the attack, although how a 'truck bomb loaded with fertilizer' caused so much damage remains a mystery. We were told he did it to avenge the Waco massacre and oppose the Federal Government's 'gun control measures'. The Oklahoma City Bombing went down in history as a case of 'domestic terrorism' by wannabe revolutionaries, but everyone ought to know by now that that was a 'Noble' Lie.

Four days ago on April 15th 2013, Tax Day in the U.S., someone set off two shrapnel bombs at the Boston Marathon. The resulting carnage is identical to that seen in Baghdad day in, day out for 10 years. The Boston Tea Party was a key turning point in the growth of the American revolutionary movement. The annual Marathon is always held on the third Monday in April - Patriots' Day - a public holiday in Northeastern U.S. states to commemorate the opening battles of the American Revolutionary War - the Battles of Lexington and Concord - on April 19th, 1775.

"Contractors" at Boston marathon stood near bomb, left before detonation

What appear to be private contractors, wearing unmarked, matching uniforms and operating an unmarked SUV affixed with communication equipment near the finish line of the Boston Marathon shortly after the bomb blasts - can be seen beforehand, standing and waiting just meters away from where the first bomb was detonated.

The contractor-types had moved away from the bomb's location before it detonated, and could be seen just across the street using communication equipment and waiting for similar dressed and equipped individuals to show up after the blasts.

Image: An already widely distributed photo showing the contractor-types on the bottom left, just left of where the bomb was placed and detonated. The men are wearing matching, unmarked uniforms, large black bags, and appear to be waiting, separately, and "behind" the rest of the crowd. In the upper left corner, a wooden structure forming one half of a temporary photography "bridge" over the finish line can be seen and serves as a useful reference when establishing the contractor-types' position in other photos.

U.S. runs terror drill at nuclear plant day after Boston Marathon bombings

The first simulated test of a terrorist attack on a nuclear power plant was a success, federal officials said on Friday of the event that was coincidentally scheduled a day after the Boston Marathon bombing on Monday.

The test's location at Three Mile Island outside Harrisburg, Pennsylvania - the site of the worst commercial nuclear accident in U.S. history - had no special significance, according to state and federal officials.

The test on Tuesday simulated an attack by a group of eight armed men, according to Peter Herrick Jr., spokesman for the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

In November 2011, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission required that the country's 65 nuclear power plants test their preparedness for terrorist incidents every two years.

Mission Accomplished?: Boston police announce Marathon bombing suspect in custody

The second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings was taken into custody Friday night, bringing to an end a massive manhunt in the tense Massachusetts capital worried by warnings the man was possibly armed with explosives.

After announcing the arrest on Twitter, Boston police tweeted: "CAPTURED!!! The hunt is over. The search is done. The terror is over. And justice has won. Suspect in custody."

Authorities confirmed the man in custody is 19-year-old Dzhokar Tsarnaev, who escaped an overnight shootout with police that left his older brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev -- the other man wanted in the bombings -- dead.

The younger Tsarnaev was in serious condition, Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis said at a news conference. He was being treated at Boston's Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, hospital spokeswoman Kelly Lawman said.

Boston Bombings 'set-up': Mother of patsies says sons groomed by FBI

Boston bombings suspects are 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who remains at large. His brother, 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnayev, was killed after a police car chase. Their family originates from Russia's North Caucasus - but settled in the United States more than a decade ago. RT talks to the mother of the two suspects Zubeidat Tsarnaeva.

Comment: Once again, we see that the people entrapped by the FBI to take the fall for a 'terror plot' were groomed ("counselled") by the FBI for years beforehand.
