CBS News: Would-be underwear bomber a double agent



(CBS News) The would-be bomber in the recently-uncovered plot to blow up a U.S.-bound airliner leaving Yemen was an undercover intelligence agent.


The Associated Press is reporting that the alleged double agent has been removed from Yemen and apparently is safe. This may go a long way toward explaining why authorities said yesterday that the bomber was no longer considered a threat. It may well be now that he was actually working with the CIA all along.

Yet they are still at it with this guy..Who didn't get the memo?

It surprised me, well not really I guess, to see this new article on Yahoo this morning that explains to us over and over how much we need to fear this guy. How he's going to bomb us with printer cartridges, memory sticks, and butthole bombs.

So after CBS tells us that the government knew about this character and he was on or payroll...ABC then turns around and keeps the myth of airborne terrorism alive and well...and the comments??? Good lord I can't believe the ignorance. Whatever the talking heads say, whatever the innerwebs says, or whatever the papers write, are all simply gospel and truthful.

"At the age of only 30, the al Qaeda bombmaker behind the foiled plot on U.S-bound planes has emerged as the most feared face of terror for American authorities, a master technician with a fierce hatred for America and ingenious plans for hiding hard-to-detect bombs inside cameras, computers and even household pets. "


So who didn't get the memo?

Good day all.

I know it looks bad, but who

I know it looks bad, but who knows what percentage of those comments are part of paid propaganda. Support for the war is at a new low. That's why we are hammered over the head with stories on gay marriage debate and this guy.

I think that they just recognize

that the average American TV viewer is basically brain dead, and only responds to fear stimuli, while basic facts just slide right by.

So, they decided that they needed to get more mileage out of this fake bomber, because it probably cost some money to set it up, and they just ran some more copy on it.

"It surprised me, well not

Great statement! Pretty much describes the American media in a nutshell.

Interesting comment on the 'chatroom' just now

Coined the term "Neo-Pauls"...those people who agree with Dr. Paul's message EXCEPT for his Foreign Policy stance...

(And therefore, tells ME - they don't understand his message!)

That is, IMHO

their fault! :)

those people- sheesh and shakes of the head

We can't stop spreading liberty. It's in our DNA and no one can snuff it out!

Seems like

EVERY SINGLE "Possible Terror Attack" has to do with informants, handlers, interrogations, MSM people, and lies.

We can't stop spreading liberty. It's in our DNA and no one can snuff it out!

Aaaaaaand let me guess.....

He worked for the CIA too.......? Isn't it remarkable how the world's "GREATEST" enemies are always affiliated with the CIA? You can't make this sh*t up! And these moppets wonder why we have conspiracy theorists. My God man, as if you couldn't get the hint behind the idea of f**kin' blowback! Now we gotta pay for this mess once the Yemeni people find out. Don't you guys see why we youth want Ron Paul in office ASAP? Because we have to deal with consequences of your bullsh*t.

When you start looking into these things you come to expect it.

I wonder if there even ever was a terrorist who was not a government terrorist.

Look at history it has happened all over the world all through time.

We are awake to their plans

I love how transparent these false flags have become. And it's no longer a fringe opinion in any way. They may have a successful false flag attack if things aren't going well for the fairy tale leading up to the election, so keep your eyes peeled.

I like that definition because it's unbaised

Compare to the definition right under it:

The calculated use of unlawful violence or threat of unlawful violence to inculcate fear; intended to coerce or to intimidate governments or societies in the pursuit of goals that are generally political, religious, or ideological.

They are almost always double agents or patsies

Documented over and over. Underwear bomber. Portland Xmas. Seattle. Iranian car salesman.

Look it up.

They dont even try to hide it anymore, these high profile cases are all FBI and CIA sting operations using agents and patsies ...

Are we going to invade Saudi Arabia instead of Iran?

I am confused..

Kurt Haskell for Congress?

The witness who exposed all this is Kurt Haskell. He got so pissed at our government hes now decided to run for congress in Michigan. Read his eyewitness story of the event here, its sickening... http://www.infowars.com/breaking-kurt-haskell-exposes-govern...

And Kurt Haskell is a good, decent man, in my opinion!

And have seen/heard him interviewed on several occasions! And he came forward when others were NOT doing so, but the, did speak up because of the example he set...

Peter King said it is

Peter King said it is "unfortunate" that news of him being a double agent was leaked. http://www.cnn.com/2012/05/09/world/meast/al-qaeda-plot/inde...

I'm used to this stuff by now, but what the hell? It was all over the news that this guy was arrested. It's not like Al Qaeda would have continued dealing with him, so why is it unfortunate? Had it not leaked, Obama DEFINITELY would have used it to justify the TSA's work.

He's a "closet Queen".

That's why they call him "The Peter King".

Of course the government was

Of course the government was in on it. They've been caught staging these fake terror plots before, because...

If there's no WAR or THREATS OF TERRORISM, then how will the military industrial complex continue to make massive profits?

whoops i misread the article.

whoops i misread the article.

Sounds like CIA

Maybe the CIA agent just infiltrated a terror cell, and then he went through with the operation and got onto the plane to test the security response. Probably wasn't even a real bomb.
The more important question for me is why did somebody leak this information, what was the motivation? And why does our government keep messing around over there. The continuous involvement and miltarism overseas is bankrupting are country. These false flag and other covert operations only fuel the mistrust toward our government.

seems to me

seems to me the gov concocts these plots to employ more people, sell more naked body scanners, spread the tsa further throughout the country.

Mainly I think it is to fabricate a narrative that perpetuates American hysteria of terrorism.

There is so little bona fide terrorism occurring to sustain that narrative, that the FBI and now apparently the CIA have to drum some up.

MSM new about the plot for 4 days

according to the MSM, the news story leaked 4 days before it was reported in order to give the US time to get the "suspect/agent" out of the country. It seems like this agent was involved with the other "terrorist" that was killed in the drone attack last week.

What upsets me most is that the MSM knew the full story, knew this person wasn't a terrorist... but still BLASTED the fake news headlines for 2 days about the government saving our lives from a real life would be bomb/attack. What a bunch of crap.

most MSM headlines read like that but then explain the story

as if it wasnt a double agent.... it is like double think times a thousand

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.


That was actually the very first thought in my mind when I read about the incident.
Gov. sponsored terrorism, keep it controlled but enough to keep the public in fear so you can keep pushing your counter-terrorism agenda. This is the very essence of tyranny. I just find it ironic for this to come out just a few days after, and to think my girlfriend thought I was crazy for insinuating such a comment.

Well, that settles it.

The US has been found to be supporting and operating terrorist activities, so it is a terrorist nation.
The CIA needs to be arrested and sent to GITMO for waterboarding about who the criminal mastermind was who gave the orders. Take it all the way to the top.

I wonder if they will pass out "terrorist playing cards" to the military with pictures of the top US officials on them?
