Ben Swann Reality Check: Did the FBI know about Boston bombing beforehand?

Could it be that the FBI knows more about this attack than they are letting on? Could they have known about the attack before hand?

Ben is looking back at some recent history in order to look forward in a Reality Check you won't see anywhere else.

When the wolves come around the

Sheep get scared but the sheep dog gets excited. Looks like things are ramping up. With the gold manipulation failure the gun grbbing failure and their inability to create a war in Iran,,,, YET, looks like the Rothschild bank mafia is getting loosie goosie before their finaly the grand world collapse of their false fiat money. They will once again atempt to instal a new false debt counterfit usury slave curency to control humanity, lets see if it works again.


Still speculation but Swann isn't weaving any stories

about the FBI. Everything he says, given the FBI's sordid history of "setting them up to knock them down", I believe to be true.

No lone wolf or organized group goes through this much trouble to cause a public display of mayhem without drawing attention to their pet issues. All eyes are on them now if they reveal themselves, which is always the desired affect.




Ben is the #1 Journalist in America!

And I love how near the end he talks about how the FBI has instigated dozens of plots and then "taken down" those plots. He gestures with air quotes when he says, "taken down."


Sadly, it is looking more and more like an FBI plot that went live. We certainly cannot conclude that, yet, but there is no evidence pointing in any other direction and certain treasonous individuals within the FBI have a history of similar actions.

Follow the evidence.

Ever see "Jaws?"

I love Ben Swann. But there is another possible scenario involving the FBI (in advance) without it being an FBI plot.

I once worked in a landmark building in NYC and recall the time we had to evacuate because of a bomb threat. That was scary enough. Then we came to learn that there were *frequent* bomb threats to the building. We'd have been called to come into work late or, midday, found ourselves hightailing it down dozens of flights of stairs on a regular basis were that precaution taken each time, had there been a standing "better to be safe than sorry" attitude.

Rather, someone (?) was analyzing things and making determinations of how real the threat was - albeit a "calculated risk." But, they seemed to know what they were doing. In four years, only once was there deemed to be a genuine threat, though in the end it turned out to be nothing, as (GRATEFULLY!) all the others for which we were not evacuated.

I imagine that major events also elicit their fair share of threats. In this case, assuming there were some tip or other advance warning of a possible attack of some kind... were the entire race to be called off, there would have been a consequence to thousands of runners & family members who'd made arrangements to be in Boston and to the city itself, financial and otherwise. Is it possible that there was a decision by someone (?) to not call off the race - to take that calculated risk; but to nonetheless, "just in case," have law enforcement make some dog-sniffing sweeps and post sentries/sharpshooters on the roofs and possibly take other precautions, perhaps feigning a "drill" so as to have additional personnel on hand? That is, perhaps a bad and possibly ill-motivated, irresponsible decision, but not necessarily something nefarious?

Yes that is possible ...

... and I have not drawn any conclusions, yet.

But if your scenario is what happened, then someone made a very bad decision that cost lives, didn't they?

And who is that someone?

Re Boston, I'm not drawing any

conclusions yet, either. (Unlike the individual who, even this early, down-voted the mere idea that it could be other than a false flag.)

IF my hypothetical scenario is what happened, then yes, someone made a bad decision... a very bad decision. Who? While some small group of others would likely have been asked to weigh in (maybe feds, chief of police, city council president, legal counsel, the event organizer, maybe governor... I'm just guessing), I'd imagine that any such decision re a public event would ultimately rest with a city's mayor.

I guess anything's possible. Well, we'll see what unfolds.

Bumpity bump...

Be safe, Ben.

Hot Damn! That San Anton HomeBoi is Fearless!!!


Way to rocket off to greener pastures!

Hope he announces his post WXiX direction, soon.

Think he said his Fox19 contract's up, in May 2013, right?

Predictions in due Time...

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul

Ben "The Black" Swann - taking down those that market in fear.

I did not know that about the recorded phone calls, interesting. If AJs empire is imploding, I nominate Ben for the new Voice for Truth.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

Ben is firmly planted in "Reality"...

AJ can't hold a candle to that.

AL and BS both are good.

Alex was not educated formally in journalism, What he lacks in one area he makes up with his courage. Ben Swan has been educated in journalism, and he is smart and courages as well, regardless, I think both are great, not need to put others down, There is plenty of good alternative voices out there for your liking, Personally I appreciate them all, even though I may not agree on all their positions.

Completely agree! Ben Swann

Completely agree! Ben Swann is down to earth, informed, fearless, and does a tremendously better job at explaining these issues than the fear mongering, wigged out Alex Jones.

Go ahead and downvote me into oblivion for criticizing Alex, I don't really care. Alex Jones may be right about alot of things but his presentation of the news is weird and creepy. He is also completely absorbed and egotistical to the maximum degree. I've learned throughout my life to keep my distance from people with those personalities.

Now Ben Swann, I have no problem sharing his very informative videos with others who are not as up to speed on issues as they should be. If I were to share an Alex Jones "Their coming to kill us all!" video I wouldn't stand a chance at changing minds, I would only succeed in making people think I'm just as crazy. Ben has a way of speaking intelligently without adding ridiculous fear mongering hype.

AJ seems to be in a constant state of...

"The Sky Is Falling!"

And rarely suggests using an umbrella

AJ did a segment on aquaponics about a week ago, I was pleased beyond words. My BIGGEST problem with AJ is not really his frothing at the mouth, it is his refusal to recommend real solutions. His AP segment was the best thing he ever did, in my opinion.
I hope Ben can up the game. We do not need anyone to "lead" us to liberty, but someone who highlights the success stories would be a blessing.
More Joel Salatin, less falling sky.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

It never ends...


On the eve of the eight year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, an FBI informant who infiltrated alleged terrorist cells in the U.S. tells ABC News the FBI missed a chance to stop the al Qaeda plot because they focused more on undercover stings than on the man who would later become known as 9/11 ringleader Mohammed Atta.

In an exclusive interview to be broadcast tonight on ABC World News with Charles Gibson and Nightline, former undercover operative Elie Assaad says he spotted and became suspicious of Atta in early 2001, when he was sent by the FBI to infiltrate a small mosque outside Miami. Atta was there with Adnan Shukrujuman, an al Qaeda fugitive who now has a $5 million U.S. reward on his head.


The FBI Allowed the 1993 WTC Bombing to Happen

Here is something to help with this video

Thanks to mat for posting this, i wouldn't have probably seen it otherwise.


Fresh air [exhales] Great, Ben. Thank you. ;)

PS. I think that you meant:

"that is not conspiracy theory, it is fact."

bump for Ben

i thought he was done with fox(?)

"The two weakest arguments for any issue on the House floor are moral and constitutional"
Ron Paul

I thought so too..

where is Ben going?

So did I. Wonder what

So did I. Wonder what happened..??

Check in at www.BenSwann.com

He has a video posted as well as a survey for his supporters.


This raises more questions.

If the FBI knew about the attack, then was the bombing:

a) brought to the attention of the FBI too late? OR
b) an unintended result of FBI ignorance? OR
c) an unintended result of FBI involvement? OR
d) a deliberate result of FBI involvement?

I believe in the freedom to be what we choose to be.

Bravo Ben!

It's so refreshing to listen to a journalist that doesn't try to play with emotions, but instead sticks to facts and asks important questions. Big ups to you Ben Swann for keeping it real!
