Cheney's Warning

Probably set the damn thing in motion before he left.

"Cheney Warns Of Another Mass Terror Attack

Joel Skousen
World Affairs Brief

In an interview with the former Vice President was rattling the sabers of terror again. CBS summarized the interview as follows: "Cheney warned that there is a 'high probability' that terrorists will attempt a catastrophic nuclear or biological attack in coming years, and said he fears the Obama administration's policies will make it more likely the attempt will succeed... Cheney unyieldingly defended the Bush administration's support for the Guantanamo Bay prison and coercive interrogation of terrorism suspects. And he asserted that President Obama will either backtrack on his stated intentions to end those policies or put the county at risk in ways more severe than most Americans - and, he charged, many members of Obama's own team - understand."

This is a telling reminder that Cheney, as a real insider knows that the CFR transition team made sure that all of Obama's appointments were on board the same globalist agenda that ruled the Bush regime. Only the rhetoric will be different. Cheney's remarks are all the more significant because he is the only person in the Bush administration upon whom we have hard evidence that he knowingly allowed one of the hijacked airliners to crash into the Pentagon when he had the power to stop it. Cheney was in charge of the White House situation room and kept putting off a young Air Force officer's concern about how close one of the hijacked airliners was approaching the Pentagon. The officer was frantic because Cheney had issued orders NOT to engage the target.

This dramatic scene, charged with evidence of government conspiracy in the 9/11 attacks, was not witnessed by some conspiracy theorist but a member of president Bush's own cabinet, Norman Mineta. To this day, it is one of the best pieces of evidence of government involvement in the 9/11 attacks. Aaron Dykes of the Jones Report tells the story:

"Former Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta answered questions from members of 9/11 Truth about his testimony before the 9/11 Commission report. Mineta says Vice President Cheney was 'absolutely' already there when he arrived at approximately 9:25 a.m. in the PEOC (Presidential Emergency Operations Center) bunker on the morning of 9/11. Mineta seemed shocked to learn that the 9/11 Commission Report claimed Cheney had not arrived there until 9:58-- after the Pentagon had been hit, a report that Mineta definitively contradicted. Norman Mineta revealed that Lynn Cheney was also in the PEOC bunker already at the time of his arrival, along with a number of other staff.

"Mineta is on video testifying before the 9/11 Commission, though it was omitted in their final report. He told Lee Hamilton: 'During the time that the airplane was coming into the Pentagon, there was a young man who would come in and say to the Vice President...the plane is 50 miles out...the plane is 30 miles out....and when it got down to the plane is 10 miles out, the young man also said to the vice president 'do the orders still stand?' And the Vice President turned and whipped his neck around and said 'Of course the orders still stand, have you heard anything to the contrary!?'

"Mineta confirmed his statements with reporters, saying 'When I overheard something about 'the orders still stand' and so, what I thought of was that they had already made the decision to shoot something down.' Norman Mineta made it clear to reporters-- who verified his quotes in written text alongside him-- that Mineta was indeed talking about a stand down order NOT to shoot down hijacked aircraft headed for the Pentagon."

The fact that the 9/11 Commission did not investigate Mineta's testimony to the commission and made active attempts to falsely document Cheney's arrival in the situation room after the Pentagon crash is also evidence of conspiracy to obstruct the truth. The 9/11 Commission also refused to publish thousands of witness testimony and had the records of those testimonies sealed in the National Archives for 50 years--just like the JFK assassination files and the FBI surveillance records on Martin Luther King. --All done to cover-up truth that would expose official government claims as false.

I bring all of this out because when a very highly placed co-conspirator in a provocation attack on America goes out of his way to publicly promote another attack, it should put us on high alert--not because the attack would be by real terrorists, but because it is likely to be another false flag attack for the purpose of manipulating public perception of the threat. The public has generally become skeptical of the constant rhetoric on the "war on terror" that has driven the political and military agenda for the last 7 years. It is very possible that the Powers That Be (PTB) intend to pull off another act to reconstitute the perception of threat and drive the American public to accept an even greater diminution of their liberties.

There is a wave of backlash building against torture and domestic surveillance that can easily be turned around by another terrorist attack. That backlash is what is driving CIA Director-nominee Leon Panetta to go out of his way to assure the world that the US has rejected waterboarding, terror and secret prisons. Even if that were true, which it is not, these are secret programs because they are illegal and the dark side of government does what it wants regardless of what the public thinks. The president only knows what they tell him. He would not know if his Executive Orders were being obeyed or not.

I have long argued that the government's case against terror is completely bogus--although I will admit that the longer the US continues to meddle in the Middle East, and provoke hatred against America, the more real terrorists they will generate. Eventually it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.

However, it is crucial to understand that rarely, if ever, does any significant terrorist attack occur by lone terrorists or suicide bombers even if they do hate our government. They all are relatively powerless withou organized help, and if you trace that help back far enough you always run into some black ops supply and training operations run by Russia, or the US--or by one of their surrogates like North Korea, Iran, and Syria (for the Russians) and Israel, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and others, for the US and Britain. Some like the Palestinians and Libyans have worked for both sides. Considering we still have wide-open borders, why do we not have a rash of small normal acts of terrorism--that don't take large sums of money or organization?

The only other major commentator that has agreed with me on the terrorist threat being bogus is former Asst. Treasury Secretary Paul Craig Roberts. Recently he said, "According to US government propaganda, terrorist cells are spread throughout America, making it necessary for the government to spy on all Americans and violate most other constitutional protections. Among President Bush's last words as he left office was the warning that America would soon be struck again by Muslim terrorists. If America were infected with terrorists, we would not need the government to tell us. We would know it from events. As there are no events, the US government substitutes warnings in order to keep alive the fear that causes the public to accept pointless wars, the infringement of civil liberty, national ID cards, and inconveniences and harassments when they fly."

Almost every prosecution of Muslims for acts of terrorism reveals, at trial, the involvement of one or more government agents in their midst. Typically these agents are not just informing, but instructing them on arms and telling them how to procure explosives--which is also damning of government participation. Roberts concludes, "The 'war on terror' is a hoax that fronts for American control of oil pipelines, the profits of the military-security complex, the assault on civil liberty by fomenters of a police state, and Israel's territorial expansion." He fails to see the broader motive of creating war and conflict to further a New World Order.

As to the specifics of this new verbal threat, it may not be imminent, but it does give a strong hint that the powers behind government are planning to perpetrate another terror attack. The dramatic circumstances would naturally force President Obama to once again apologize for changing course and begin to champion anew the same aggressive tactics on terror that the preceding administration did. That is the intent, I believe, of Cheney's threatening stance.

If you are in a major metro area, you need to be prepared for the social unrest that will follow such an attack. As I have said before, your greatest threat is NOT the actual attack, which is always fairly localized, but the social and economic effects of a draconian federal reaction to the crisis. This could be anything from shutting down all transportation, to local martial law. In any case, expect to be heavily impacted by traffic jams, panic buying at stores and panic exits from the area of the attack. If it is a small localized attack (95% probability) your best tactic is to get home and stay home till it clears. Only in very massive social panic situations should you risk trying to leave the area, and only then early on before gridlock occurs (by taking one of your preplanned local street routes out of town) or after the initial crush and panic subsides--by staying at home and relying on your stockpile of food and household goods. Don't delay in getting those in order. My booklet 10 Packs for Survival has complete lists.

I think the easiest attack to pull off, and still make it appear as if it "couldn't have been foreseen or prevented" is an attack from a ship or boat slipping into a major US harbor and exploding a dirty nuclear or biological/chemical bomb. The actual blast effects will be limited to a few blocks, but one must be very careful to always note which way the wind is blowing when one of these bombs goes off. You only need to worry about getting out of the downwind path. Even that will dissipate within 1-10 miles depending on the strength of the wind and how high the material is blown upward. Of course, everyone will be in panic, so if you are anywhere in the vicinity you will be impacted by the instant traffic jam, and then by the government created traffic jam as it closes off freeways and major roads for "first responders" --making the situation worse.

I always recommend people carry a small can of extra fuel in their car and one or two gas masks or paint respirators in their trunk so that, if stuck downwind, they won't run out of fuel in a traffic jam. If one has to park and wait it out, it can be done without panic, inside the car breathing filtered air through the respirator. It's even more important to have a mask if you have to exit the vehicle. If your home or apartment is downwind of the attack, stay inside and do duct tape your windows and doors to stop all air infiltration. This does work--but only if you have a supply of tape available beforehand. The trapped air supply will last at least 2-3 days.
