Whitehouse considering intentional failings over underwear bomber

Webster Tarpley writes:

"WASHINGTON, DC -- Officials in the Obama White House are considering the possibility that the Christmas day attempt by Nigerian terrorist Umar Farouk Mutallab to blow up an airliner about to land in Detroit was deliberately and intentionally facilitated by unnamed networks inside the US intelligence community. This was the gist of a report by Richard Wolf delivered in this evening's edition of cable network MSNBC's Countdown program, hosted by Keith Olbermann (see below). This report comes on the eve of a special White House interagency conference convoked by Obama to deal with the massive systemic failure of US intelligence in allowing the Yemen alumnus Mutallab to board the Amsterdam to Detroit flight while allegedly carrying a PETN explosive device on his person. "

Cock-up? Turf War? or ... Tarpley continues:

"Obama and his advisors should be urged to consider a third explanation far more plausible than either of these. This third explanation would include the desire of a rogue network inside the US government to unleash a new wave of Islamophobic hysteria to rehabilitate the discredited "global war on terror" strategy in a new and more sophisticated form, while imposing a new round of outrageous and degrading search procedures at airports (such as the full body scanners peddled by the venal Michael Chertoff) to soften up the American people for heightened totalitarian control and political repression."

Mr President, you better watch out if you go down that particular path... don't be taking any open-top Limo rides.

Oh for heaven's sake! After having listened to the " doh ...doh" recordings around 9/11 you have GOT to be kidding!

JFK was murdered by the mafia.

The mafia may well have been involved, but they weren't the only ones with a motive, and they couldn't have done it alone and got away with it. If it were the mafia, as you say, it would still mean the official version is a pack of lies. Which brings us to 9/11.

I don't know what recordings you are referring to, but there should be a new investigation. The official version is equally implausible.
