 Will the real treasury looters please stand up?

“Former President Obasanjo came to power in 1999 with a tough moral posture to rid Nigeria of corruption, no matter whose ox was gored. In line with that commitment, members of the Abacha family and associates were forced into a deal to cough out billions of dollars, which they and their late father, General Sani Abacha, allegedly stole. In fact, former Information Minister, under Obasanjo, Professor Jerry Gana was regularly briefing the nation about the billions of dollars being “recovered” from the Abachas. The former Obasanjo administration promised to invest these billions into improving the quality of life of Nigerians. We were excited that the messiah had finally come, with the election of a “born-again” puritanical President Obasanjo! We thought the enemy of corruption had finally come to the rescue.” .  . .  (more)

CLG: Northwest Bomb Plot ‘Oddities’

[excerpt]….

In 2008, the ACLU estimated the US ‘No Fly List‘ to have grown to over 1,000,000 names — heck, even Cat Stevens and the late Senator Ted Kennedy were on it — and it continues to expand. But, suspected terrorist Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab, who was curiously able to obtain military-grade high explosives –80 grams of PETN (Gee, where’d he get that?) — managed to escape airport security and detonate his underwear bomb!

In April 2009, American authorities reportedly refused an Air France flight from Paris to Mexico entry into US airspace because a left-wing journalist writing a book on the CIA was on board. Hernando Calvo Ospina, who works for Le Monde Diplomatique and has written on revolutionary movements in Cuba and Colombia, figured on the US authorities’ ‘no-fly list.’ Air France said the April 18 flight was forced to divert to the French Caribbean island of Martinique before continuing its journey (telegraph.co.uk).

Got it? Write a book critical of the CIA — you cannot fly. Carry explosives (allegedly from Yemen) on board when the US is trolling for an excuse to invade and occupy Yemen for its oil — yes you can! The US needs false flags to provide cover for illegal invasions and occupations. The 9/11 terrorist attacks (aka inside job, six ways to Sunday) worked well for the US government; the security-industrial complex made billions and US corporaterrorists were able to negotiate the wholesale theft of Iraq’s oil….
