CNN Airs Witness Testimony that 'Well Dressed' Indian accomplice helped Abdulmutallab board
without passport and that man on plane filmed entire flight and bombing attempt

Evidence is emerging that clearly indicates Abdulmutallab was able to board only with the help of an unidentified well dressed man seen at the boarding gate.

Kurt Haskell and his wife, who were witnesses on board Northwest Airlines Flight 253 saw Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab at the boarding gate in Amsterdam. Haskell told CNN that the accused bomber appeared strikingly 'poor' next to the well-dressed man he said was obviously wealthy and appeared to be of Indian ethnicity. According to Haskell, that man did the talking for him, explaining to the flight personnel at the gate that Abdulmutallab needed to board without a passport, claiming that he was a Sudanese refugee.

The gate attendee referred the odd-couple to the manager. Haskell said that was the last he saw of the wealthy man, but later recognized Abdulmutallab after the incident occurred on the plane. That's when he says he put two and two together about the unusual connection.

His wife found it 'odd' that authorities have not yet followed up on their witness account, as they were the only ones known to have witnessed Abdulmutallab with the 'Indian' man prior to boarding the flight.

If he had help getting on the flight with no passport after having been reported to the authorities by his own father, what is the true explanation for the man seen filming the entire flight? Another witness on board the flight, Richelle Keepman, said she noticed the cameraman at the beginning of the flight, believing the man might have been simply excited about a first flight, or etc. Later when the 'bombing' incident took place, she says the cameraman was the only one standing up, and intently filming the entire incident.

Put this together with the coinciding announcement that Yemen 'is the next front in the fight against Al Qaeda', the media's immediate hype of the event, and the ready-made Body Scanners and other 'enhanced' Airport security, it is clear that this is a contrived incident intentionally unleashed to goad renewed support for ever-expanding terrorism-related warfare in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sudan, prepatory talks about Iran, and now Yemen.

Just like after 9/11, airport travellers are again prepared to accept greater violations of their liberties and privacy for supposed security. Yet patsies and watchlist-subjects alike have repeatedly been allowed to bypass security clearance and been proven to have ties to the intelligence community.

The latest accused 'terrorist' Abdulmutallab was very likely the fallguy in a pattern-drill-- handled by wealthy, mismatched associates, allowed to board without required credentials, and videotaped by a cameraman with an unknown connection. Was Abdulmutallab involved with these figures through a drill which ended with an intentionally-failed bombing meant to incite great fear of terrorism?

This would fit closely with other elements of CIA-concocted "terrorism." Many of the 9/11 hijackers and other known extremists were revealed to have participated in 'dry run' drills, shared addresses with intelligence handlers or lived on military bases, were allowed to pass through the border despite being on one or more watchlists, and were given VISAS/Passports through execptions and/or special clearance.

Similarly, David Headly, named in the Mumbai attack, has been exposed as a CIA-double agent. http://www.prisonplanet.com/terrorist...

FBI/CIA provocateurs and exaggerated accounts of extremists groups have continued to emerge from the phony stories given to the public in the cases of many would-be plots, such as in Toronto, 'plot' to bomb the Sears Tower, the Transatlantic liquid bomb plot, alleged plans to 'blow up a Jewish temple and shoot down military planes' in New York and more.

We see a similar pattern here, the emerging evidence strongly suggests. How long will we allow deliberately-provoked terror incidents to frighten us to death, invade our privacy, erode our liberties, restrict our travel and perpetuate an ever-expanding string of wars?

Benjamin Franklin long ago warned us that "If we restrict liberty to attain security, we will lose both." And that those willing to make that bargain deserve neither their liberty nor security.

"CAUGHT MY CURIOSITY"

Half Hour Interview with Kurt Haskell

Detroit attorney Kurt Haskell appeared on the Alex Jones Show today and detailed his experience at the Amsterdam airport and on flight 253. Mr. Haskell provided information not covered by the corporate media.
featured stories Alex Jones Interviews Eye Witness On Flight 253

In addition to a detailed retelling of the story he gave the corporate media, Mr. Haskell addressed the unprofessional and lackadaisical behavior of the FBI and airport security after the plane landed at the Detroit Metro airport in Romulus, Michigan. He characterized their behavior as a “complete embarrassment. They actually put us in more jeopardy than we were already in.”

This is looking more and

This is looking more and more like a false flag operation which probably was not intended to blow up the plane, but rather to ramp up fear in the public and re enforce the anti Al Qaeda idea and gain support in congress and the public for more aggressive action in the ME, SOuth Asia and now Africa.

The problem is that they plotters are leaving evidence and getting caught.

Are they so sloppy or are they completely indifferent to this believing that they can win any propaganda battle, much they way they have managed to keep the facts away from the public about 9/11.

It seems almost as if they know they can be sloppy because the press will do its job and the result of the false flag is assured.

I'm waiting to see the identity of the man in the airport and the videopgrapher.

Clearly,

this appears to be another case of "keeping the boogeyman alive."

Great post Joe.

The Coverup is getting intense...

The Flight 253 Coverup is getting intense, but Kurt is well aware of the 9/11 Coverup...so he is standing firm.
Kurt Haskell writes his account here: http://www.mlive.com/news/detroit/index.ssf/2009/12/flight_253_passenger...
"Today is the second worst day of my life after 12-25-09. Today is the day that I realized that my own country is lying to me and all of my fellow Americans. Let me explain."

This writer nails it... http://healingsgreen.blogspot.com/?spref=fb
...with an added comment by Lori...
Update: Comment by Lori Haskell:
"Really great post. This is Lori Haskell. Even more ddisturbing info came out today on mLive. Now the FBI has changed their story AGAIN and is stating that a second man from our flight was NOT arrested, that it was actually a guy from another flight and that many flights were walking thru our area of customs. This is a total lie. The man we saw detained stood by us and exited the plane with us. Also, the area we were standing in had been emptied before we got there and nobody but us and police/customs/FBI were there. This is getting really scary for us. The FBI is very obviously covering something up for some reason. Anyway, thanks for the supportive posts."

Deja Vu all over again

"There is a reason we have only heard of the video and not seen it. dutch authorities, "RELEASE THE VIDEO!" This is the most important video in 8 years and may be all of two minutes long. Show the entire video and "DO NOT EDIT IT"! "

http://www.mlive.com/news/detroit/index.ssf/2009/12/flight_253_passenger...

This comment refers to the video of "the sharp dressed man" in Schipol Airport.
Just like the videos of the Pentagon impact, we will never see them

Quote from article:
"...The government has maintained that
1. The man didn't exist and the detention. interrogation and being led away in handcuffs never happened.
2. That the man existed, but was not arrested
3. That the detention, interrogation and handcuffing happen and the man was from another flight
4. That the detention, interrogation and handcuffing happen and the man was on the flight and was detained on immigration charges and released...no mention of the triggering sniffer dog or moving the group because of explosive material in hand luggage of the man. And of course the identity of the man must remain a secret...
...The current FBI story is the fourth in eight days. Who do you think is lying? The eye-witnesses or the government? "

Lori Haskell:
"I just want them to look into our claims," Lori Haskell said. "Our story has been the same since Day One because we are telling the truth. This is the FBI's fourth story." http://www.detnews.com/article/20100101/NATION/1010405/1409/METRO/Custom...
"I walked off the plane with the individual," who was later arrested, Lori Haskell said. "He was standing around 15 to 20 feet away from us ... the entire time."

She said federal officials had cleared the baggage area so passengers from Flight 253 would not mingle with passengers from other flights before they were questioned by the FBI.

Ron Smith, chief Customs and Border Protection officer in the Detroit area, said the Haskells' account appears to be a composite of two events at the airport around the time passengers got off Flight 253. Both events were unrelated to the suspected terrorist incident, Smith said.

Her daughter said that ahead of them was a man who videotaped the entire flight, including the attempted detonation.
"He sat up and videotaped the entire thing, very calmly," said Patricia. "We do know that the FBI is looking for him intensely. Since then, we've heard nothing about it. "

Feb 10 - CAMERAMAN on Haskell Blog & the other witness to the WELL DRESSED MAN who had helped the bomber board the plane. http://haskellfamily.blogspot.com/2010/02/update-on-cameraman.html

WITNESS to WELL DRESSED MAN is Shama Chopra who writes in the comment section.

I am the husband of Shama Chopra, who was a passenger on teh NW 253 with Lori and Kurt Haskell.I would encourage you to check out this link to understand how Shama feels about this incident.
http://en.video.canoe.tv/video/travel/activities/1896809981/passenger-on...
As promised she flew Northwest 253 again on 25th January 2101 exactly one month to the date.She travelled in the wake of a Terror Alert regarding female suicide bombers and the Ethiopian Airlines crash. The Detroit News had this to say in their 26th January 2010 edition. ( they mispelled her name as ShaRma. There is no R in her name.
Canadian defies terror fears, takes flight from Netherlands to Detroit.

Just as in the case of Kurt and Lori we get a lot of pressure not to speak out. Kurt and shama are the only two people known to have noticed Abdulmutallab BEFORE boarding the flight. Shama was the only CANADIAN on board that flight.

We intend to continue to ask the questions because this is definitely a Failure of Security and the Cover - up is ON.

Will be visting Detroit soon to set the record straight.

To, Kurt and Lori I say that we draw strength from your efforts and will support you throughout this ordeal. You are brave and we are with you.

Raman & Shama Chopra, Montreal, Canada

UPDATE ON THE CAMERAMAN BY KURT HASKELL -

As I've previously mentioned, I have been in contact with several passengers from our flight. Many of them want to remain anonymous due to how Lori and I have been treated by the media and government officials.

Earlier today, an anonymous poster commented on this blog that he has been in contact with the cameraman and that I know who "The anonymous poster" is. I do know who the anonymous poster is, and after I read the comment, I called the anonymous poster. He went on to state that he has spoken to the cameraman and that he is certain that the cameraman is not involved. According to the anonymous poster, the cameraman is a single man who was flying by himself to visit someone in the U.S. Also, he indicated that the cameraman recently purchased a camera and was testing it out on the flight because he was alone and bored. I am still somewhat unconvinced as it is difficult for me to believe that someone would film a terrorist attack and not stop filming during the attack.

HE THEN WENT ON TO STATE THAT THE CAMERAMAN THINKS THAT HE HAS A PHOTOGRAPH OF THE MAN IN ORANGE!

I now have the camerman's contact information and I will be attempting to contact him shortly to obtain this photograph. Apparently, the cameraman was taking still photographs on the plane as well as video and the government only confiscated his camera, but did not confiscate his memory card, which contains the still photgraphs.

I will give an update as soon as I have something further to report.

//abcnews.go.com/Blotter/911-chairs-criticize-handling-detroit-christmas-day-bomber/story?id=9667640

The two former chairmen of the 9/11 Commission expressed concerns today about how security agencies responded to the arrest of alleged Christmas Day bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab and the decision to quickly charge him instead of attempting to gain valuable intelligence information.

Before the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, former 9/11 Commission vice-chair Lee Hamilton testified there needs to be more urgency when confronting Al Qaeda, saying the terrorist group "is on the march, not on the run…the sense of urgency for terrorism has been too low."

"Here is a man who may have trained with other people who are trying to get into this country one way or another, who may have worked with some of the top al Qaeda leadership in Yemen or al Qaeda generally and we don't know the details of that," Thomas Kean, former chairman of the 9/11 Commission, told the committee. "He may know about other plots that are pending and we haven't found out about them."

CNN deliberately censors Haskell interview - Feb 18, 2010

HASKELL FAMILY BLOG - February 18th -
http://haskellfamily.blogspot.com/2010/02/interesting-note-to-todays-cnn-article.html

Kurt explains the deliberate CNN censorship of the "well dressed man".
"...CNN wanted to write a new article on flight 253. The email listed a series of questions that CNN wanted the passengers to answer about flight 253. This is the first major media organization to contact Lori and I after the hearings took place in Congress. These hearings provided the statements from Patrick Kennedy and Michael Leiter that led to the obviously conclusion that the Sharp Dressed Man was a U.S. Government agent (Please scroll down below and read previous blog posts if you are not informed as to these comments and this conclusion). Therefore, I expected CNN to address these issues, as they are now, in my opinion, the most important part of the flight 253 story. When I provided my answers, I informed CNN that it could only use my answers if it intended to discuss the Sharp Dressed Man in its article. I heard nothing further from CNN. Lori, however, got another email that said, since we can't use Kurt's answers, can we at least use yours? This was not a surprise to me since it is obvious that the major media is furthering the U.S. governement's flight 253 propaganda. Lori's take on all of this is that we should keep flight 253 in the media no matter what. My take is that it is time for the media to step up to the plate and ask the hard questions. Until that happens, don't bother wasting my time to further the U.S. Government's agenda. You can read the article below as Lori posted a link in her most recent blog entry. Notice that I am not mentioned in the article. At least the media is showing its true colors."

Shama Chopra who also witnessed the "well dressed man accomplice" expresses how her testimony was recently suppressed at the hearings and by the media. (See her comment on the HASKELL BLOG)

GOVERNMENT AGENT was the accomplice...
Kurt writes: "Please see my 1-28-10 article, which lays out the case that the Sharpd Dressed Man was a U.S. government agent. I am sure you can find video and transcripts if you do a google search.

In the comment section, this was pointed out... Karl Ziomek, who likely wrote the headline, has links to Heritage Newspapers, held by Prechter Holdings. Heinz Prechter was an avid supporter and fundraiser for the Bush family. It is likely that some of this connection continues. My sense is the Bush family has a large interest in consigning inconvenient facts to "conspiracy theory". Unfortunately I think we are seeing, in the headline, the first expression of an attack on the inconvenient facts that Kurt observed. Regards, Bruce

March 06, 2010 BOMB NOT ENOUGH TO BRING DOWN FLIGHT 253

ABDULMUTALLAB'S BOMB NOT ENOUGH TO BRING DOWN FLIGHT 253
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1255722/Test-explosion-shows-Christmas-Day-flight-landed-bomb-detonated.html#comments
From Kurt and Lori's BLOG - http://haskellfamily.blogspot.com/2010/03/abdulmutallabs-bomb-not-enough-to-bring.html
Apparently, Dr. John Wyatt, an international terrorism and explosives expert replicated the flight 253 attack with the explosive fully detonating. The result was that the passengers would have been sprayed with body parts of Abdulmutallab and may have had burst eardrums, but the flight would have landed safely. Seems like a strange result considering Abdulmutallab went through such trouble to obtain the bomb in Yemen and sew it in his underwear. It seems likely that he would have made sure that his bomb would have downed the plane. Several of you that have contacted me have indicated that he in fact, achieved his designated goal and that his bomb was only intended to scare us and be caught on film in order to achieve certain U.S. Government policies. Hence, the reason he was intentionally let on the plane. This article would lend credence to that theory. I take no position on this theory. Please note that the following videos also support Dr. Wyatt's theory:

U.S.-Israeli Complicity in Terror Plot, FBI, Media Cover-Up Flight 253 Assistance (UPDATES)
First Posted: December 31, 2009. Last updated: January 12, 2010.

High-level help in yet another terror plot has emerged, along with U.S. F.B.I. and D.O.J. cover-up of the facts and outright involvement. History is rife with examples ( http://www.mathaba.net/news/?x=547722 ) of intelligence agencies setting up ( http://www.mathaba.net/news/?x=622527 ) terror plots - sometimes with unintended victims and consequences - and the Delta 253 terror plot is the latest such plot to have gone wrong.

As in many European capitals, security at transport systems and video CCTV are managed by Israeli "security firms", such as ICTS International N.V., which handles "targeted security" at Amsterdam's Schipol airport. It took the Israeli media to do the job that European media failed to do: point out that the terrorist in the most recent intelligence agency false-flag plot (suspect: MOSSAD?) was cleared to board the plane without showing his passport, by the Israeli company ICTS [LINK http://www.mathaba.net/news/?x=622566 ]. He also (by)passed the profiling [Schiphol Airport with more than 1,000 cameras http://www.securitydirectornews.com/?p=article&id=sd200904ao5v37 ] interviews conducted of passengers prior to boarding flights.

Background

The father Alhaji Umaru Abdul Mutallab of the young terrorist, is promoted as an accomplished Nigerian banker [link http://www.mathaba.net/news/?x=622475 ] and ran the national arms industry (DICON) in patnership with Israel, Nigeria has extensive intelligence links to Israel [link http://www.mathaba.net/news/?x=622477 ].

The young man, son of the above, who tried to blow up the plane is a 23 year old Nigerian named Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab; he has attended the British International School, Lome, Togo and studied engineering at the University College, London ( MI5 knew... http://www.mathaba.net/news/?x=622535 ) and was a master’s in international business degree student at the Dubai campus of an Australian ( http://www.mathaba.net/go/?http://www.lankaweb.com/news/items/2009/12/30/christmas-terror-in-detroit-deception-continues/ ) University [link http://www.mathaba.net/news/?x=622476 ].

That a wife of his father, is from Yemen, and frequently travels to the United States, is as yet unconfirmed, however it is known that Umar Farouk Abdul-Mutallab holds a Nigerian passport with a mutiple entry visa to the United States, which is valid until June 2010.

The young man fell out with his father, and may have visited Yemen and mixed with islamist terrorists there, to join with those he believed to be at the opposite end of his father's allegiences (money, USA, banking, arms industry). He will not have known that those terrorists in Yemen are supported ( http://www.mathaba.net/go/?http://www.veteranstoday.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=9944 ) [link http://www.mathaba.net/news/?x=622479 ] by Israel's MOSSAD.

A text message was received by his family in Nigeria, apparently from the young Mutallab, which led his father, who is received as a VIP by the U.S. embassy in the capital Abuja, to visit that embassy to alert the U.S. of his son's activities, on November 19.

As a result this information is shared by the U.S. embassy with U.S. agencies, resulting in the son being placed on a terror watch list. For this reason, the son cannot show that passport or he would be unable to board the Northwest Airlines flight from Amsterdam, where he flew after returning via Nigeria from Yemen.

(It is claimed by U.S. media that in Yemen he even met up with some of those released ( http://www.mathaba.net/go/?http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/men-believed-northwest-airlines-plot-set-free/story?id=9434065 ) [link http://www.mathaba.net/news/?x=622568 Another passenger backs up "well dressed man" story ] without charge from Guantanamo. 92% of those held and tortured by the U.S. for many years, were innocent of any terrorism, 6% were involved with the Taliban in Afghanistan, and at most 2% were said to have anything to do with Al-Qaida. We can trust the U.S. to have released any real terrorists, and to continue to hold any innocents.)

Instead of thus trying to fly on his compromised passport, the disheveled and poor-looking Mutallab is escorted [LINK] by an expensively clothed Indian-looking man of around 50 years of age, who tells the boarding gate check box that Mutallab is a Sudanese and needs to board without a passport, and that "we do this all the time." Mutallab is silent and obedient, the Indian does all the talking.

The check in staff at the gate, naturally refuses, but takes the pair away to see their superior to deal with this case, and the entire conversation up to that point was overheard, unfortunately for the conspirators as it turns out, by successful Michigan lawyer Kuret Haskell, who is sitting a few feet away with his wife Lori, on their way home to the U.S. after a visit to Africa.

Naturally, as all things at European airports, all movements of all people are recorded on CCTV video, so it would be easy to track and identify the "Indian" accomplice of the bomber-to-be. Yet, as happened in London with the infamous 7/7 bombings, this material appears to be withheld (Kurt's Blog http://haskellfamily.blogspot.com/2010/01/announcement-we-have-been-expecting.html ) [LINK http://www.mathaba.net/news/?x=622567 & http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=D9D1OPVO0&show_article=1 ] from media and the public, and we are told to believe "authorities" there that there is no Indian and no accomplice.

Remarkable too is that these security companies involved with European airports are often Israeli, and run by ex-military or ex-MOSSAD Israeli agents, on the pretext that the threat is from islamist terrorists, an area Israel has experience with, but which then does not allow for checks against Israeli MOSSAD "false flag" operations, with ever tighter measures implemented against the public.

Meanwhile while the public is subjected to ever more discomforts and irrational fake security measures whilst keeping the terror threat alive ( http://www.mathaba.net/news/?x=622457 ), but military jets, private aircraft, and CIA-rented aircraft freely enter and leave European and other airports, often without any security checks or searches, with "VIP" passengers thus able to enter and leave countries often without any visa, as we learnt from the "extra-ordinary" rendition of U.S. abducted prisoners through Europe.

Back to the terror plot under examination. Shortly after the young Mutallab terrorist and his wealthy VIP "Indian" handler disappeared down the corridor to see higher-ups, the passengers along with the Haskells, boarded the flight. As there was no delay for departure to wait for the terrorist, it is evident that clearing the terrorist with the higher-ups took a matter of a minute or so - the "Indian" obviously has a high-level pass (CIA, MOSSAD or high level security clout).

Then the flight proceeds over the Atantic Ocean with no peculiar events, except for one man sitting somewhere in front of row 19 - the row the young terrorist is seated in - who films much of the flight on his cam corder, always facing back wards toward the terrorist, whom he is recording ( http://www.620wtmj.com/news/local/80201152.html ) [LINK http://www.mathaba.net/news/?x=622514 ] with extensive video footage. This passenger too, we are not told about, are not to ask about, and we do not get to see his video.

In a CNN News program ( http://mathaba.net/go/?http://edition.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0912/28/acd.01.html )[LINK http://www.mathaba.net/news/?x=622498 ], passenger Richelle Keepman states, "There was a man that, when we first took off, I noticed about 10 seats ahead of us to the left-hand side. He had a camcorder. I thought maybe this was his first flight and [he] was just excited. And then, when the actual incident occurred, I looked up, and he was the only one standing and filming the entire thing." In another CNN article [LINK], she states, "I don't know why he was standing up [when] we were supposed to be seated, and he was filming it."

The Haskells are sitting 8 rows behind, in row 27. Kurt Haskell does not notice the young terrorist again until shortly before landing, when passengers have already been instructed to buckle up for landing. A stewardess walks past mumbling something about the smell of smoke, and sure enough fire flames errupt from around the seat of the young Abdul-Mutallab, who is subdued immediately by passengers, the small and now wounded man offering no resistance.

Throughout this incident however, the man continues recording the terrorist, calmly and without interruption. Very unusual behaviour, as observed by many other passengers on board this flight. Then the pilot comes onto the intercom, somewhat nervously, to briefly announce an immediate landing, and the plane is floored, but then remains on the tarmac for 20 minutes before anyone is allowed to leave.

This 20 minute delay, is only something that can happen at a U.S. airport, the inefficiency of security and systems in the U.S. are well known to the world, both pre-9/11 and after it. Anywhere else in the world, such an aircraft with a subdued terrorist on board, would be evacuated immediately, and anywhere else in the world, passengers would be told to leave all baggage behind. Not so in the U.S.A.

After that 20 minute delay putting all passengers at danger of further fire as it had not been established that the aircraft was safe or that the fire had not spread out of sight into the skin of the craft or toward the fuel tanks, or bombs that may be stashed and detonate, the passengers are made to sit with all their luggage for around six hours as they are slowly interviewed by FBI agents and others.

After around an hour, dogs that arrived, sniffing for explosives, loved the smell of explosive substances in an Indian looking man's bag (Haskell confirms [LINK] this Indian is much younger than the one in Amsterdam, who was not on board the flight) and this Indian is taken away in handcuffs. Yet, after this too, we no longer can hear any information about this Indian or what happened to him.

After that incident, an FBI officer makes an extraordinary announcement [LINK] to the passengers, which Haskell recounts to popular alternative media investigative journalist Alex Jones during an extensive interview [link] also detailing his FBI [link] interview, moving them to another location for the remaining 5 hours, and out of sight.

Although very important and reliable witnesses with essential testimony, the Haskells are not contacted for several days. Then the FBI pays a visit [LINK http://www.mathaba.net/news/?x=622497 ] to their law offices, show them various photographs, attempt to impeach them, and fail to produce any video from Holland or anywhere else for that matter, fail to show full body photographs of the terrorist, only facial shots. They clearly are fishing for how much the Haskells saw, and not for the (Indian [link] http://www.mathaba.net/news/?x=622483 ) accomplice(s) [link http://www.mathaba.net/news/?x=622484 ], at least one of which is obviously working with the full protection of the authorities.

The FBI has changed its story 4 times [LINK] http://www.mathaba.net/news/?x=622507 , first denying the existence of the Indian man arrested at Detroit airport, later claiming he was from another flight, since this news item was first posted by Mathaba. The Haskell's testimony remains unchanged, persistent, and is not going away with this now all over the Internet.

CONCLUSIONS

Other parts of the story can be guessed at or surmised, for example, that the "Al-Qaida" claims [link] are the work of MOSSAD with its agents in the CIA, and are designed to garner public support for stepped up U.S.-Israeli involvement in the recent war between the Yemeni government and those terrorists, which have consistently been supported by London and covertly by Israel. Or that the young terrorist thought he would really be blowing himself up and that the well dressed 50-ish year old Indian escort of his was a high-level "Al-Qaida" officer sent to help him and that he was really on a jihad mission and destined for Paradise. Or even that he was hypnotised [LINK] or drugged as he was in a trance [LINK]. That his handlers knew full well that smoke and burns would only result as they ensured the device would not work (a would-be suicide-bomber can never test their equipment in advance, for obvious reasons), and that they would have a wall-to-wall TV worldwide coverage of the ongoing threat of Al-Qaida, terrorism, and of the "need" to take away further liberties in order to defeat it.

The timing of the latest terror threat could not be more convenient for the US terror and war industry: only two weeks prior president Obama was refused an extension and expansion [link] of the infamous Patriot Act rushed in after 9/11 and since then used extensively for spying [link] on the American populace. At the time the administration was only granted a 60 day extension until February. The broadcast of a "live" terror attack on an American aircraft will ensure that the CIA gets everything they ask for next time round. It will also boost the calls for a direct American involvement in Yemen, where the Obama administration has started a proxy war through Saudi Arabia, and it will give the security industry the green light for installing the body scanners they trialled in various countries amidst concerns of invasion of privacy. Amsterdam Schiphol has already announced their immediate deployment - this news item incidentally also notes a dutch investigation concluded that it was American security officials at Schiphol, who cleared the passengers to board the flight.

The cat is now literally out of the bag and cannot be put back. The awareness of people of all walks of life, like the Haskells, who are able to observe and think logically, ensures that sound conclusions are drawn on at least some issues such as this one. Several gaping holes are blown in the official version of events: the failure to produce the airport security video from Amsterdam Schipol, the "video passenger" on the plane, and the disappearing Indian(s). This awareness offers some faint glimmer of hope that one day enough people will put their trust, support and money into true news media networks such as Mathaba to stay informed rather than continue to swallow the misleading disinformation and continuously forgive the 3-letter money slave media (MSM) networks for their repeated and ongoing failures to cover news and issues that matter.

Mathaba urges any other witnesses at the airports at Amsterdam and Detroit as well as any passengers or crew from the Northwest Airlines flight, or anyone else with direct information to come forward via our secure contact form and to share that. Mathaba is the only news agency with a secure contact form so that witnesses and whistle-blowers can provide information without fear of being traced by their government, terrorists, or hackers. General contact is also available. We ask that you supply your contact details so that we can follow up and verify, and assure you that we honor the journalist tradition of confidentiality - whatever is told to us in confidence or not to be on the record, is not disclosed. We hope that more good citizens will come forward to back up existing testimonies or offer any further information that may help.

Note: For those wanting to delve deeper into the details of facts, opinions and logical deductions surrounding this case, the links in the article above serve as good starting points for further research.

Whatever one thinks of Alex Jones and some of his predictions

not to mention his style....

It does say something about Jones' popularity and gravitas that after going to CNN and FOX to report the anomaly, Kurt Haskell next went to AJ and gave him a half hour interview.

It also speaks to Kurt Haskell's own inclinations

and sensibilities.

I think I am safe to say that this is just one more indication of how widespread the truth movement has become.

We should invite the Haskell's to join Lawyers for 9/11 Truth.

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.

Haskell writes about how the Truth is now revealed...

http://haskellfamily.blogspot.com/2010/01/truth-about-flight-253-has-been.html

"...The reasoning behind the following events now becomes very clear:

1. The reason Mutallab got through security despite the numerous warnings for months before our flight.
2. The reason why there have been so many lies from the U.S. Governemnt attempting to discredit my eyewitness account.
3. The reason why the Amsterdam airport security video is being hidden from the public.
4. The reason why the government is proposing a "Failed to Connect the Dots" account of the failure. The truth is too damning.
5. The reason why Mr. Wolf of the Obama administration indicated on the Keith Olberman Show that the White House was investigating a possible "intentional act" from within the U.S. Government as the reason for the Christmas Day attack.
6. The explanation for the cameraman and why he hasn't been identified (Obviously, he was another U.S. Government agent) whose job was to film Mutallab for some governmental purpose.
7. The reason for the lax security after landing, which can be attributed to foreknowledge of the possible suspects involved.
8. The reason for the failure to search or secure the plane and passengers after landing, which can also be attributed to foreknowledge of the possible suspects involved.
9. The corporate media's attempt to bury my eyewitness account.
10. Carl Levin's, Debbie Stabenow's and John Dingle's intentional avoidance of my story and failure to return my calls/emails.
11. Janet Naploitano's statement that "The System Worked". From her point of view it probably did as this WAS PART OF THE SYSTEM!..."

Late November 2010 - Kurt goes to Milan Prison

Kurt Haskell tries to visit the Underwear Bomber in Milan Prison

http://911blogger.com/news/2010-12-02/kurt-haskell-tries-visit-underwear...

Background: Kurt and Lori Haskell were passengers on board Flight 253, Christmas Day 2009. Kurt Haskell, a respected attorney, witnessed a well dressed man help the underwear bomber to board Flight 253 without a passport. There were other odd occurrences associated with this flight.
In September, Kurt stated: "...It seems as though the Underwear Bomber has now decided to fire his attorneys and represent himself. I am actually not too surprised by this event. Being an attorney myself, I can see his attorneys trying to stuff a settlement down his throat while he argues in opposition that he was set up...."

In late November, Kurt and another attorney attempted to visit the Underwear Bomber at Milan Prison. Here is Kurt's story...

___________________________________________
My Visit to See Umar by Kurt Haskell

As I posted about a month or so ago, I have been attempting to meet Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab (AKA- The Underwear Bomber) in prison. I initially contacted the Milan Prison holding Umar by phone. I was given an extension to a Ms. Rodriguez and left her several messages. She did not return any of my calls. I put this on the back burner for awhile as I have been busy at the office. While on vacation in Las Vegas this weekend, I decided that I would try again when I got back to Michigan. Today was that day. After my trial this morning, Shannon (An attorney in my office) and I drove to the Milan Prison. We met a guard who said he would attempt to have us meet Umar on the spot since we were there. I thought "sweet" as I wasn't expecting much from this visit. We were told that we would have to talk to Ms. Rodriguez after her meeting ended in approximately 5 minutes. So we waited. When Ms. Rodriguez finished her meeting, the guard talked to her and showed her our I.D.'s and bar cards. The guard then came into our waiting room and told us that we would have to call to schedule a meeting with Umar. O.K., this is more of what I expected. When we returned to the office, Shannon called the prison and was told that we could never meet with Umar unless he put us on his visitor list. She was further told that we could not meet with him as his potential attorneys either as he had a court appointed attorney listed on his visitor sheet. We were told this in spite of the fact that it is well known that Umar does not have an attorney. As I have stated all along, the government will have to kill me to stop me from my relentless pursuit of the truth. Until I am successful, the government's deceit of the American public concerning the Underwear Bomber will continue.

http://911blogger.com/news/2010-12-05/lori-haskell-points-out-tsa-ruse

Updates
I suppose I should post before we leave on Saturday.......

Vegas was an awesome getaway. Flights were both good, no being felt up by TSA or being put through the body scanners. I was a little nervous Kurt would be selected and would cause some kind of scene. Instead, we got right through, and Kurt forced me to stand there and watch an elderly woman get felt up, and a 50-something year old man. The woman--I could not even watch. It was pretty horrible where they were touching her, and they pulled out her pants and kinda looked down them (she was wearing black, stretchy yoga-like pants), which disgusted me and made me turn away. The guy seemed to be respected more by his TSA employee. I was happy to see that some people were choosing to NOT go through the body scanners. I am really annoyed that so many people have the opinion that we should just "deal" with the scanners as "flying is not a right" and "we need to be safe." I wish everyone saying that would look at the details a bit more. The guy that tried to kill me? Yea......he did not have to go through any security at all. So, these body scanners that make us all super safe? The patdowns? Yep, would have done NOTHING on my flight because if the US wants terrorists here to track? They'll get them here. These scanners are a complete violation of my constitutional rights, but everyone in the US is so scared by the US government, they just say whatever and go through. It's sad. Pretty soon, the US government is going to be completely controlling everyone and their money, and everyone will be convinced it's "for our own good." Scary.

And since this is my blog? Please do not post to try and talk me into the scanners, or talk about how you are OK with them. Until you can say you were on a plane, on fire, with a terrorist, who did NOT go through any security because our government chose that, you don't really have the right to disagree with me....

There is so much information, that this tidbit from February gets overlooked.

Shama Chopra said...
I am the husband of Shama Chopra, who was a passenger on teh NW 253 with Lori and Kurt Haskell.I would encourage you to check out this link to understand how Shama feels about this incident.
http://en.video.canoe.tv/video/travel/activities/1896809981/passenger-on...
As promised she flew Northwest 253 again on 25th January 2101 exactly one month to the date.She travelled in the wake of a Terror Alert regarding female suicide bombers and the Ethiopian Airlines crash. The Detroit News had this to say in their 26th January 2010 edition. ( they mispelled her name as ShaRma. There is no R in her name.
Canadian defies terror fears, takes flight from Netherlands to Detroit.

Just as in the case of Kurt and Lori we get a lot of pressure not to speak out. Kurt and shama are the only two people known to have noticed Abdulmutallab BEFORE boarding the flight. Shama was the only CANADIAN on board that flight.

We intend to continue to ask the questions because this is definitely a Failure of Security and the Cover - up is ON.

Will be visting Detroit soon to set the record straight.

To, Kurt and Lori I say that we draw strength from your efforts and will support you throughout this ordeal. You are brave and we are with you.

12/13/10 - Bomb could not have taken down Flight 253

Experiment finds ‘underwear bomber’ could not have taken down flight 253

"A recreation on the CBC program ‘the Passionate eye’ attempted to determine what would have happened if Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab had been successful in detonating his pentaerythritol trinitrate (PETN) bomb on Christmas day of last year..."
"...However, the blast, if successful, would not have been powerful enough to penetrate the 5 mm thick aluminum alloy skin and the structural integrity of Northwest Airlines flight 253 would have remained in tact. The documentary also admitted even in laboratory conditions, the attempted detonation method of igniting the PETN by ways of a chemical reaction is difficult..."

"...Curiously absent from the documentary was the eyewitness account of Kurt Haskell, who as reported on the Michigan Live news website, indicated Mutallab was escorted past Amsterdam’s security with the aid of a ‘sharp dressed Indian man’… “His friend was dressed in an expensive suit. The suited man asked ticket agents whether Mutallab could board without a passport. The guy said, ‘He’s from Sudan and we do this all the time.’” Security Analyst Chris Yates states in the documentary, “he (Mutallab) was a very ‘ordinary looking’ guy, very ‘student looking’”. Conversely, Mr. Haskell has stated, “Mutallab was poorly dressed.”

Christmas Day One Year Later-The Underwear Bomber-Case Closed ...by Kurt Haskell from Thailand
http://haskellfamily.blogspot.com/2010_12_01_archive.html

"...Since it can be almost certainly accepted that the FBI/CIA planted Umar with a fake bomb we must ask a few more questions. Who was the Sharp Dressed Man? The answer is now certain that it was a U.S. Government agent sent to ensure that Umar boarded the plane. Obviosuly, the entire fraudulent plot fails if he fails to board the plane. Who was the Man in Orage? The answer is not really important anymore. It is likely that he supplied Umar with the dud bomb at Schipol Airport and was taken into custody after the bomb residue was found in his carry on bag. The scenario that he lugged it in his undies from Yemen is simply not plausible. One also has to wonder why the U.S. Government chanded its story so many times in relation to this guy. Obviosuly, he is also a U.S. Government agent. Now we must dig a little deeper and ask ...."

Prosecutor's Trying To Block Use Of Evidence By Umar's Standby Attorney
by Kurt Haskell

Ho-hum, just another story that supports my version of Flight 253 with Umar as a patsy:

http://www.freep.com/article/20101122/NEWS05/101122060/Feud-rages-over-u...
(Nov 22, 2010 ... A standby lawyer trying to help Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab wants to share sensitive records with his staff, but federal prosecutors say no.)

This story just keeps getting better and better. First of all, what the heck is a standby attorney? You either have an attorney or you don't. Having an attorney allows you to have the attorney client privilege apply to all of your communications between the client and attorney. Under no circumstances can those communications be discovered by anyone or held against you in court. Does that apply to a standby attorney? Does that mean that Umar has an attorney or he doesn't? Why do I ask? A few weeks ago I went to visit Umar in prison to discuss his case. I was denied access because Umar had a "standby attorney" listed on his visitor sheet. Without that listing, I (allegedly) could have met with Umar and discussed his case.

Now to a discussion of this article. Judge Edmunds previously ordered that Umar's standby attorney, Anthony Chambers, could have access to all of the discovery materials for the case. For non-lawyers, discovery is the pre-trial process in which both sides obtain all of the evidence that might be used at trial. Logically, if an attorney is getting ready for a trial, his staff will help him with that preparation, and consequently, will have access to all of the discovery materials. The prosecutors are now attempting to block the request of Attorney Chambers to give his staff and various experts (who may testify for Umar) access to such materials. A denial of such a request would greatly damage any help Attorney Chambers may be able to provide Umar.

A question I have is, why try and block such a request if you have nothing to hide? Wasn't that the excuse the U.S. Government used when it started using illegal wiretaps? If you have nothing to hide, then don't worry about it. Again, this is just another tell to the truth that I've been repeating over the last year. I caught the U.S. Government with their hand in the cookie jar and it knows it. Now it must take every unjustified step to ensure that Umar doesn't receive a fair trial. For those of you that ask if it really matters, yes it does. A person can commit a crime and still be found not guilty. Umar could be found not guilty based on a defense of entrapment. Umar could also get off on the Outrageous Government Conduct Defense. Such a defense came into existence in the 1971 case of Greene v. United State, 454 F.2d 783. In ruling for the Defendant in that case, the court stated that "we do not believe that the Government may involve itself so directly and continuously over such a long period of time in the creation and maintenance of criminal operations, and yet prosecute its collaborators".

Hidden in this article is also this gem: Anthony Chambers needs to discuss the evidence with experts. Hmmm, I have to wonder what kind of experts? Anthony Chambers is apparently an expert in criminal law with 25 years experience. Thus, I don't see that he would have a need to consult with other attorneys to discuss the issues. The only other possibility, is that he needs to discuss evidence with experts in chemical composition, explosives and plane construction. Each being tied to the question of whether Umar's bomb was viable. As I stated in my post on 12-25-10, this question is the only question that matters. Apparently, after looking at the evidence and/or discussing the matter with Umar, Anthony Chambers questions exactly what I do about the bomb. He apparently feels the viability of the bomb is the entire case. Obviously, he must be questioning some sort of shady government evidence as to its viability. I am almost feeling sorry for the man that nearly killed me (via fire from a fake bomb). On deck for me this week will be a personal visit to the office of Attorney Anthony Chambers.

Feud rages over underwear bombing evidence

The Detroit Free Press

A legal feud is underway in federal court over who gets to see evidence involving the so-called underwear bomber, charged with trying to blow up an airplane over Detroit last Christmas.

Anthony Chambers, the standby lawyer who is trying to help the Nigerian defendant, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, says he needs to share certain sensitive records with his staff, lawyers and experts in order to fulfill his duties. But federal prosecutors are trying to limit who sees that information, holding it’s not clear if Abdulmutallab – who has insisted on representing himself – wants his records shared with others.

In a motion filed today in U.S. District Court in Detroit, federal prosecutors urged the court to deny Chambers’ request – stated in a Nov. 10 letter – that he be allowed to share certain discovery material with attorneys, paralegals and legal experts.

"Nowhere in the letter is there any reference to the desires or decision of the defendant, who is his own attorney, about these matters," wrote Cathleen Corken, Jonathan Tukel and Michael Martin – the three prosecutors handling the case.

A federal judge last month ordered prosecutors to turn over discovery records to Chambers, who has since asked the court for permission to share that information with attorneys, paralegals and potential experts that may be used.

"Without the assistance of my legal staff I will not be able to fulfill my duties," Chambers wrote in a Nov. 10 letter.

But prosecutors argue that it’s not clear what Abdulmutallab’s wishes are regarding the disclosure of evidence, stating in court documents that there is “ “no indication” that Abdulmutallab wants any additional persons to have access to discovery. Moreover, they wrote, when asked at a recent hearing whether he even wanted his standby attorney to have discovery, “the defendant stated that he did not.”

"While we would ordinarily readily agree to allow an attorney's staff to have access to discovery materials to assist the attorney, this is not an ordinary case," the prosecutors wrote. "Standby counsel does not represent Mr. Abdulmutallab, and the government seeks to avoid a situation where the defendant could later claim that standby counsel, standby counsel's staff, or both tried to or succeeded in dictating strategic choices to him over his objection."

Abdulmutallab, 24, is accused of trying to set off explosives that were hidden in his underwear while he was aboard Northwest Airlines Flight 253, which was carrying 279 passengers and 11 crew members.

Authorities have alleged that Abdulmutallab is an al-Qaeda operative trained in Yemen for the suicide mission, which was foiled when a passenger subdued him.

Abdulmutallab will appear for another pretrial hearing on Jan. 12. Between now and then he will go over the government's discovery materials and prepare his defense.

In September, Abdulmutallab suggested that he wanted to plead guilty to some charges. He is currently being held at a federal prison in Milan.

Defense: Underwear bomber's attempt may have been impossible

By Tresa Baldas
Free Press Staff Writer

The alleged attempt to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner on Christmas day in 2009 may have been impossible, according to a new court filing in U.S. District Court in Detroit.

Defense attorney Anthony Chambers, who is serving as stand-by counsel to Umar Farouk Adbulmutallab, the Nigerian passenger accused of trying to blow up the airliner using hidden explosives in his underwear, is trying to get the complete file on his client from the federal defender’s office.

In a motion filed Monday, Chambers wrote that the file contains “expert information which disputes the government’s allegations and furthermore, that the alleged attempt to ‘destroy an aircraft’ was impossible!”

Chambers asked U.S. District Court Judge Nancy Edmunds to order the federal defender’s office to turn over the file to him and his staff, arguing the file is “essential and critical to the defense.”

Against Abdulmutallab’s wishes, Edmunds in October appointed Chambers to serve as stand-by counsel to Abdulmutallab, who was adamant about representing himself on charges that he tried to use a weapon of mass destruction to blow up a Detroit-bound plane from Amsterdam on Christmas. Abdulmutallab had already fired his lawyers with the federal defender’s office, and said he preferred to go it alone.

Edmunds, however, overruled him on the lawyer issue, telling him at the time, “You don’t have legal training in U.S. law.”

Authorities have alleged that Abdulmutallab is an al-Qaeda operative trained in Yemen for the suicide mission, which was foiled when a passenger subdued Abdulmutallab.

In September, Abdulmutallab suggested that he wanted to plead guilty to some charges, but has said nothing about a plea since. He is being held at a federal prison in Milan.

Abdulmutallab will appear for another pretrial conference on Jan. 25.

Miriam Siefer, chief federal defender in the Eastern District of Michigan, was not available for comment.

(STANDBY) ATTORNEY "ATTEMPT MAY HAVE BEEN IMPOSSIBLE"
by Kurt Haskell

I almost fell out of my chair when I saw this story today. Umar's standby attorney now claims that his bombing attempt was impossible! There is only one explanation why this could be true. HE WAS PLANTED WITH A FAKE BOMB! Please take a look at My Christmas Day 2010 post where I claim that this was in fact what happened:

http://haskellfamily.blogspot.com/2010/12/christmas-day-one-year-later-u...

Furthermore, Attorney Chambers gives us this bombshell quote:

"The file contains expert information which disputes the government’s allegations"

No wonder the prosecution has been attempting to hide evidence from the defense (see below):

http://haskellfamily.blogspot.com/2010/12/prosecutors-trying-to-block-us...

This may not mean much to most of you, but to me this is a late Christmas present (no pun intended). After 13 months of hearing the U.S. Government's propaganda, the fog is starting to lift and I will soon be completely vindicated.

I am heading down to Umar's status conference tomorrow afternoon. This will be the first hearing of Umars that I've attended. While there, I will attempt to have a discussion with "Standby" Attorney Chambers concerning the necessity of having myself testify as a witness for the DEFENSE. The U.S. Government, the real terrorist in this matter, will not get away with this as long as I am alive.

This is Kurt Haskell:

If I talk to Umar, it will be through standby attorney Anthony Chambers. I have talked to him a couple of times and we will be meeting shortly.

With time, I am now more convinced than ever as to what transpired. I would now say that I am 99% certain as to what happened.
There are many pieces of evidence that support my theory on what happened. The evidence that supports the government theory is nonsensical and contradictory. I know that it is hard for some of you on the outside to accept our theory. Starting October 4, 2011, things will become very clear.

Thoughts on Umar's Hearing This Week and a Look Ahead to the October 4th Trial
by Kurt Haskell:

Lori and I attended Umar's status conference this week. The proceedings were extremely interesting to me. First of all, Umar walked into the courtroom in a white t-shirt. He turned and stood about 20 feet in front of me. I kind of had a deja vu moment as when I saw him in Amsterdam, he stood about 10 feet in front of me with a white t-shirt on. I finally got to hear Umar speak. I've never heard him speak until this hearing. His English seemed pretty good, although he had a fairly heavy accent. He did have a Nigerian translator present and he did consult with him a few times. Most of the hearing was spent in a back and forth discussion between Judge Edmunds and Umar. The discussion centered around the need for Umar to accept standby attorney Chambers as his regular attorney. Umar refused over and over again. Everyone in the court room seemed to just want to stand up and say "LET HIM BE YOUR ATTORNEY!". Judge Edmunds finally gave up. Another part of the hearing discussed the fact that Chambers is not Umar's attorney right now, and therefore, Umar and Chambers don't have the attorney client privilege. Thus, anything Umar tells or shows Chambers can be found out by third parties. The U.S. Attorneys seemed particularly troubled with the fact that some of the information they turned over to Umar, could be obtained by third parties and used in a civil case. I wonder why? The hearing then proceeded with a discussion of if and how the evidence held by Umar's previously fired attorney (given to her by the prosecution) would be turned over to Chambers. The result was that it would only be turned over to Umar at Milan Prison and Umar could show Chambers only what he wants to. Note that Chambers, during this discussion, indicated that Milan prison had not been providing faxes or messages of his to Umar or being helpful in scheduling appointments. He went on to state that it was his belief that Milan prison was doing this intentionally, and he suspected that it had received a call from "higher up" to do this. Note that I had a similar experience with Milan prison last year. The hearing concluded with Judge Edmunds setting a trial date. She first suggested June 23, but Chambers wasn't available. She then suggested September 10, but Chambers again wasn't available. She then suggested October 4 and noted that she wouldn't likely reschedule that date. When she set that date, Umar stated that he needed more time than that to read up on how to do the trial. He then asked for a trial date in 2012. Judge Edmunds immediately refused. I was shocked at how adamant Umar was that he was going to represent himself. I now strongly believe that this matter will proceed to trial. What I am concerned about is that Umar will likely represent himself at the trial. If he does so, he may not know how to get the important evidence admitted into the record. If I am correct and Umar does not use Chambers in the trial, I fear that the facts will never be known. I was very impressed with Chambers and Judge Edmunds. I did not get the impression that either is biased towards the prosecution and the "official" story. I talked to Chambers for a few minutes after the hearing and we will be having a conference soon. It was strangely odd that no other passengers were present. This fact put Lori and I back in the crosshairs of the media crunch. We talked to at least 7 reporters, but only Fox 2 Detroit reported the interview. What is also strange is that nearly all of the passengers seem to have disappeared. I no longer have a valid email address or phone number for any other passenger. I am not sure what to make of this.

Crotch and testicles on fire, but no screaming?

On Thursday's blog radio show, a caller brought up a valid point about the underwear bomber...
Typically, if a man's testicles are kicked, the man doubles over in pain.
The underwear bomber had his crotch and testicles burning... ...yes, burning on fire.
He did not scream. He did not double over, squirming in pain.
He was almost stoic.

http://soundcloud.com/media-roots/mediarootsradio-2

Abby and Robbie Martin conduct an exclusive interview with Kurt Haskell, attorney and key eyewitness to the 12/25/09 "Underwear Bomber" incident. Kurt maintains that he witnessed a well dressed man argue with security and escort Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab onto his US flight without a passport. Shortly thereafter, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab allegedly attempted to blow up flight 254 with plastic explosives hidden in his underwear, prompting the new wave of Backscatter X-ray machines in airports.

Kurt explains why he feels like the entire event was staged by the government in order to perpetrate the threat of terrorism in this country, and how being an eyewitness to a false flag attack caused him to question his entire political paradigm.

3/24/2011 - AP Newswire - "Why Detroit?"

"...Abdulmutallab considered Houston, where he attended an Islamic conference in 2008, current and former counterterrorism officials told the AP. Another person with knowledge of the case said Abdulmutallab also considered Chicago but was discouraged by the cost. All spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case...

For al-Qaida, Detroit was just the cheapest flight

"...Abdulmutallab initially cooperated with investigators, pulling back the curtain on some activities by al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, the Yemen-based offshoot that has quickly became al-Qaida's most active franchise. Plea discussions fell apart, however, and he's scheduled to go to trial in October while acting as his own lawyer..."

"...A plea deal from Abdulmutallab would have resolved that dilemma. His testimony could form the basis for indictments against al-Awlaki or perhaps bomb maker Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri. And the U.S. wouldn't have to disclose some of its most sensitive intelligence-gathering techniques...."

"...Al-Quso, 36, is one of the most senior al-Qaida leaders publicly linked to the Christmas plot... ...Al-Quso is from the same tribe as radical U.S.-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who had an operational role in the botched Christmas attack.
In December, al-Quso was designated a global terrorist by the State Department... ...On the FBI's list, al-Quso ranks behind only bin Laden and his deputy Ayman al-Zawahiri among the most sought-after al-Qaida terrorists..."

Underwear Bomber, His State of Mind and the Complicity of the Detroit Free Press in the Cover Up
by Kurt Haskell
Saturday, April 09, 2011

Earlier this week Lori and I attended the pretrial conference for the Underwear Bomber (Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab). This was the second hearing we attended and we plan on attending all other future hearings if our schedule allows. The hearing was pretty uneventful. One point of note to indicate Umar's state of mind was made during the hearing. Judge Edmunds asked him if he had any current concerns. His response had nothing to do with him being sentenced to life in prison, evidence, his need for an attorney, etc. His response was that he wasn't being given commissaries that he wanted in prison and also that the prison would not let him have a certain magazine subscription. Does this sound like someone in the right frame of mind to defend himself in a trial of this magnitude?

Secondly, and more importantly, was something that I discovered about the Detroit Free Press. As most of you know, the Free Press is the main newspaper here in Detroit. Before the hearing this week, I went on the Free Press website to check something about the Underwear Bomber case. What I discovered was pretty astounding. The two main articles that support my theory of the real events of this case have been erased from the Free Press website. I have written previously blog posts about each article. The first one can be found here:

*(See the 911Blogger entry for the script to the erased Detroit Free Press article - "Feud rages over underwear bombing evidence" http://911blogger.com/news/2009-12-30/accomplice#comment-244164 )

and the second one can be found here:

Anyone following this blog knows that my theory on this case is that an agent of the U.S. Government escorted Umar through security without a passport and provided him with an intentionally defective bomb in order to stage a fake terrorist attack on the flight that I was on (Please read previous blog posts for more information and evidence that supports my conclusion). The first erased article talks about how the prosecution requested a hearing to block Umar's stand-by attorney Anthony Chambers from obtaining evidence in the case. I have to ask, why would the prosecution do this? Isn't this an open and shut case with nearly 300 eyewitnesses? Obviously, this article clearly supports my conclusion that the U.S. Government is hiding the real story and the evidence must support this conclusion.

The second erased article talks about how stand-by attorney Anthony Chambers stated that the U.S. Government's own explosives experts indicate that the bomb was defective and could not have blown up. Again, this is another article that has mysteriously been erased by the Free Press. Why would the U.S. Government not want this story out there? Obviously, it would be hard for anyone to believe that Umar went through all the trouble to go to Yemen and have a bomb sewn in his underwear, travel back to Nigeria, then Amsterdam, then Detroit, only to have the bomb have no chance of detonating. It is much easier to believe that the U.S. Government supplied Umar with a fake bomb as it did(admittedly) with the Portland Christmas Tree Bomber and the Wrigley field Bomber.

Strangely enough, all other mundane articles about the Underwear Bomber going back to 2009 remain on the Free Press website. This is not a case of the Free Press erasing old articles. This is a case where the Free Press hand picked explosive articles that go against the official story in an attempt to hide the truth from the American public.

This is not the first problem that I've had with the Free Press. I have done numerous interviews with it only to have the articles, or any mention of anything I stated, not get reported. As a matter of fact, at the hearing in late January 2011, I did a 15 minute interview with a Free Press reported. Despite the fact that her article appeared in the Free Press the next day, she did not mentioned me or her interview with me in any way.

For anyone that believes we have a free press in this country please provide me with a reasonable explanation of what has occurred here with the Detroit Free Press. It certainly appears to me that we have blatant censorship by one of the largest newspapers in the U.S. Sadly, it also appears, that the media is nothing but a 4th branch of the U.S. Government. The sole purpose of the media is obviously to get paid to spew propaganda to the unfortunate U.S. citizens that have yet to awaken.

5/24/2011 - Associated Press - fingerprints on bomb...

Al-Qaida bomber leaves behind a fingerprint
By ADAM GOLDMAN and MATT APUZZO, Associated Press
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110524/ap_on_go_ca_st_pe/us_al_qaida_bomber

WASHINGTON – The FBI has a fingerprint and forensic evidence linking al-Qaida's top bomb maker in Yemen to a trio of explosive devices used in recent attacks on the United States, tangible reminders that Osama bin Laden's death has not eliminated the threat from the group's most active and dangerous franchise.

Investigators have pulled a fingerprint of Ibrahim al-Asiri off the bomb hidden in the underwear of a Nigerian man accused of trying to blow up a plane over Detroit on Christmas Day 2009, U.S. counterterrorism officials said. Investigators also determined that the explosives used in that bomb are chemically identical to those hidden inside two printers that were shipped from Yemen last year, bound for Chicago and Philadelphia.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the cases remain under investigation.

Bin Laden's death leaves al-Qaida's core in Pakistan with a leadership vacuum, one that could make the Yemeni branch known as al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula even more prominent. The Yemeni franchise already had eclipsed bin Laden's central organization to become al-Qaida's leading fundraising, propaganda and operational arm. In a eulogy to bin Laden posted online earlier this month, the group's leader promised more violence.

"What is coming is greater and worse, and what is awaiting you is more intense and harmful," said Nasser al-Wahishi, who once was bin Laden's personal secretary.

Al-Qaida's Yemen branch has become so well-known in the United States that some commentators speculated in the days after bin Laden's death that the radical U.S.-born Yemeni cleric Anwar al-Awlaki would succeed him. But U.S. officials and counterterrorism experts say that's extremely unlikely, given his American citizenship, his relative newcomer status, his 1997 arrest in San Diego on solicitation of prostitution and the fact that he's not even the operational leader in Yemen.

The FBI has been building cases against a number of high-profile terrorists, including al-Asiri and al-Awlaki. For now, though, there is no guarantee those cases will ever make it to a courtroom. President Barack Obama has not indicated what he would do if a major terrorist suspect was captured abroad. It's a politically sensitive issue because, even though civilian courts have been used for years to prosecute terrorism cases, Republicans have portrayed Obama as weak on terrorism whenever he discusses that option.

Intelligence officials long have believed al-Asiri helped build the Christmas and cargo bombs but have never disclosed how they were able to directly link him to the failed attacks. The fingerprint also would help establish al-Asiri's identity if he ever were apprehended, possibly allowing the Justice Department to extradite him to the U.S. for prosecution.

It's not clear who provided the FBI with the original fingerprint used to match the one lifted from the underwear bomb. But it probably came from Saudi Arabia, where al-Asiri and his brother were arrested for their involvement in an al-Qaida-affiliated terrorist cell. They were released and later fled to Yemen in 2006.

In March, the State Department designated al-Asiri a terrorist and banned Americans from doing business with him. The U.S. said he was also involved in planning to bomb Saudi oil facilities.

He's also implicated in the 2009 attack on Saudi Deputy Interior Minister Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, the country's top anti-terrorism official. Intelligence officials say al-Asiri strapped a bomb on his younger brother, who volunteered for the suicide mission. The attack killed the younger brother but only managed to injure Nayef.

Though the device was dubbed the "butt bomb," explosives experts believe the younger brother had actually held the bomb between his legs.

Underwear Bomber Hearing 7-7-11
by Kurt Haskell

I haven't posted anything regarding the underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab (Umar) in awhile. It is not due to a lack of interest on my part. There simply hasn't been much new going on with the story. That changed today. I expect this story to heat up once again as the October 4th trial date approaches...
...
...This hearing was scheduled for two reasons: 1) The prosecution asked to "define" the role of stand-by attorney Chambers to determine what he can and can't do and 2) Stand-by attorney Chambers request to delay the October 4 trial date due to the prosecution giving him new evidence only one month ago.

The prosecution argued its motion first and asked for ridiculous requests such as Chambers not being able to sit by or talk to Umar while court was in progress. Judge Edmunds appeared to think most of the requests were ridiculous. A couple of the requests she indicated that she would decide after taking the issue under advisement (Judge talk for thinking it over) and would give her decision at another hearing in approximately two weeks. She took these issues under advisement as between Umar and Chambers: 1) Who will do jury selection, 2) Who will do the opening statement, 3) Who will do the closing statement, and 4) Who will question the witnesses. Interestingly enough, Umar told Judge Edmunds that he and Chambers will each question some of the witnesses. Judge Edmunds told Umar that would probably not be acceptable. I wonder if Judge Edmunds forces Umar to question all of his witnesses, if that will scare him into using Chambers as his regular attorney? I can only hope. Judge Edmunds once again tried to get Umar to use an attorney. Umar once again refused and indicated that he has been making progress on his studying to become his own attorney.

The more interesting part of the hearing today centered around Chambers request to adjourn the October 4, 2011, trial date. As part of his argument, Chambers indicated that the prosecution dumped the "Most significant evidence" of the entire case on his office in June after holding it for 18 months. Chambers then went on to describe such evidence as follows:

1) A copy of Umar's passport (Apparently it took 18 months to create it)

2) A disk containing a chemical analysis of the composition of the bomb

3) Airport security video and audio

4) Four disks of DNA analysis

5)A Witness statement from a Dutch, non-law enforcement citizen, government profiler, who talked to Umar during "the time in question"

For those of you following my theory on this case, you can see the obvious tie ins between the evidence that was withheld for 1 1/2 years and what it likely shows. I am, however, very puzzled as to item 5. I am not sure what the shows, who it is, when it was, or how it's relevant. Chambers then requested all other hidden evidence to which the prosectuion indicated it would turn over to Judge Edmunds for her review within two weeks. AS IF IT WAS O.K. TO HIDE MORE EVIDENCE!!!!! Apparently, the further hidden evidence is classified as SECRET (top secret?) and requires judicial review even before it's released to the defense. If I was representing Umar, I would be beyond livid over this conduct by the prosecution. What kind of evidence in this case could be so highly classified? I wonder if it has something to do with providing a "terrorist" an intentionally defective bomb and escorting him around security without a passport?

The hearing ended with Judge Edmunds denying Chambers request to delay the trial. Jury selection will start October 4, 2011.

The Colossal Deceit Known As The Underwear Bomber Case

With jury selection set to begin in the Underwear Bomber Trial set to begin tomorrow, I've spent the evening reminiscing about Christmas Day 2009 and the 21 months since. The Underwear Bomber attack has fundamentally changed my life. Not in the way most would think, but it has destroyed any faith I've had in the U.S. Government, the media and this country as a whole. To say that I believe the government is corrupt and the media is complicit doesn't fully explain my beliefs. Not only have I come to those conclusions, but I've witnessed that an ordinary person who sees something important can be silenced despite his efforts to spread the truth. Such is the Underwear Bomber case. I can do nothing but laugh at the TSA's new policy of "If you see something say something." That is exactly what I did, and not only did the U.S. Government not want to hear what I had to say, but it actively lied about it, attempted to get me to change my story, and hid, by withholding (secret government) evidence or putting a protective order on the evidence and nearly everything that would support my eyewitness account.

Where are we now? We now have The Underwear Bomber (Umar) representing himself with the help of standby attorney Chambers. Attorney Chambers has indicated to me that if he were Umar's attorney, that the defense would be entrapment and that I would be a key witness. Of course, such a defense would expose the U.S. Government's involvement in the plot. It is much too convenient to have Umar represent himself and be in charge of what the defense will be, what evidence is presented, what witnesses are called and what questions each witness is asked. A trial with Umar representing himself will leave the relevant facts of this case unknown for generations. I can't help but think that Umar fired his attorneys for a reason other than he is a crazy terrorist. It is much too convenient that the entity that staged the event, also controls the evidence, what information is leaked to the media, who the prosecutors are, and the prison where Umar has sbeen staying at for the last 21 months. Let's not overlook the fact that the U.S. Government has admitted to waterboarding and torturing terrorists. Do you see the pieces of the puzzle forming a clear picture yet?

Make no mistake that Umar did in fact attempt to detonate a device (although it was a defective device) on Flight 253. He is not innocent. It remains to be discovered whether my belief that Umar is complicit with the "theatre" going on before our eyes came about before or after the event of Christmas Day 2009. It really is not important except that you must understand that he is now complicit in covering up the true story of Christmas Day 2009. There is no other explanation as to why Umar is representing himself and rejecting the entrapment defense (Which I have discovered he will do).

For those that are still skeptical of my claims, please realize that I do not make my claims without a great deal of thought and research. My firm belief is that Umar was escorted around security and given an intentionally defective bomb by a U.S. intelligence agent. The bomb was never intended to detonate, but merely intended to create a "simulated terrorist attack" or a "false flag attack" if you will. In December of 2009, the U.S. Government hadn't seen a terrorist attack in 8 years, It was getting more and more difficult to spend hundreds of billions a year on terrorism and to continue to fight two fraudulent wars based on terrorism. Those making their livings off of the war on terror didn't want to lose their cash cow. Enter Umar the Underwear Bomber. A second benefit of a failed bomb being found in Umar's underwear, was to enable body scanning machines to be placed in every airport. How convenient for Michael Chertoff , a former head of the DHS, to have ties to the body scanning companies. I doubt that this was any coincidence. Once again, billions of dollars would flow from the U.S. Government for body scanning machines that were needed to protect us.

What we are now left with are the bits and pieces of the Underwear Bomber case that can form a clear picture of what happened that day. For those of you attempting to put it all together, please take your time and think about the evidence instead of glossing over it and continuing to remain in denial. The truth is that your U.S. Government staged a false terrorist attack in order to steal your tax dollars and your 4th Amendment Rights to be free of unreasonable searches and seizures. Please thoroughly consider the following with an open mind and think about why this sort of behavior must stop now:

My thoughts on this case and the list of anomalies that differ from the official version of events were made through: (a) numerous discussions with other passengers, (b) my own eyewitness account, (c) discussions with Umar's standby attorney, (d) hundreds of articles on the story (e) evidence provided to me by others "in the know" or just other concerned citizens, and (f) from the official record at hearings I attended.

Anomalies of the case in no particular order:

1. In December 2010, Chambers told the Detroit Free Press that the Government's own explosives experts indicate that the bomb was impossibly defective. The Free Press later erased this article from its online site, but did not erase earlier underwear bomber stories.
2. The FBI has admitted to supplying the Portland Christmas Tree Bomber and the Wrigley Field Bomber with intentionally defective bombs shortly after the underwear bomber event.
3. Janet Napolitano's comment that "the system worked" was a Freudian slip.
4. The plane taxied to the gate. The passengers were not allowed off of the plane for 20-30 minutes (Was the bomb still on the plane?). There was bomb material that was supposedly explosive all over the cabin of the plane. Nobody took any action to make sure the passengers were safe or that the "explosives" were of no danger to the passengers. This is evidence of foreknowledge that there was no danger to the passengers.
5. TSA admitted knowledge of the threat while the flight was over Canada/Atlantic Ocean. No measures were taken to notify the pilot or to divert the flight for an emergency landing elsewhere.
6. My eyewitness account of the sharp dressed man and the related evidence as to this man. There is no other likely explanation for this man except for government involvement. The airport video has never been released and remains under protective order of the court.
7. The government's continued release of Umar's passport picture through the media. This was done for no other reason that to attempt to discredit me. Why such an effort to show a passport picture all over the media? In no other case has a passport picture been shown in the media. A copy of the supposed "passport" of Umar, however, was not released to Chambers until June 2011. The release of the passport to standby defense counsel was delayed 19 months in order to limit the amount of time Chambers would need to have experts verify its authenticity.
8. The explanation for the cameraman is near unbelieveable. He started filming the sky just before the attack started and then he turned to film the entire attack from beginning to end. We all thought we were going to die. The last thing on anyone's mind at that time was to film something.
9. On 1-5-10 Breibart posted an article that indicated the Government had viewed over 200 hours of video from the airport and it showed no evidence of an accomplice. This article is contradicted by the 1-22-10 article of ABC News by Brian Ross that indicated that "The government is looking into the identity of a man that helped Umar at Schiphol." The article fails to mention that this "sharp dressed man" escorted Umar through security without a passpot and instead tries to paint this man as Al Qaeda. The government is contradicting itself in both of these stories and is attemptin weak coverups in each story.
10. Umar is charged with conspiracy. The accomplices names or contributions are never mentioned. They are not listed as wanted and they are never discussed. This is because they are U.S. Intelligence agents.
11. Customs spokeperson Ron Smith changed the official story about the 2nd man taken into custody in Detroit 5 times. Then he sent a half hearted apoogetic email to the media. My story as to this man has never changed. Ron Smith eventually gave up lying and quit talking about this man who was witnessed by nearly all of the passengers.
12. Why were pictures of Umar's underwear constantly released to the media? These pictures show Umar's underwear is largely intact. I have information from a credible source that due to this incident, Umar "Will never have any kids". This fact is not in line with undamaged underwear. The continued release of the underwear was used as a propaganda piece to reinforce the deceit.
13. The prosecution has continued to block evidence from Umar's standby attorney and in some cases, has provided it late. Why? If Umar was a terrorist nut, what is it that the government does not want the defense to see? It seems to me that if the official story is true, then this is an open and shut case. It appears that the government feels a need to insulate itself from civil cases filed by the passengers.
14. Why has Chambers repeatedly indicated that Umar has a very valid defense? The answer is the entrapment defense.
15. Portions of the Patriot Act were set to expire just before Christmas Day 2009. The Congressional vote to extend them was delayed until February. Body scanning machines were already built and sitting in warehouses. Michael Chertoff, the former head of the Department of Homeland Security has ties to the body scanning manufacturers. The U.S. had no terrorist attacks from 2001 until Christmas Day 2009. A new terrorist attack was needed to get the body scanning machines in the airports.
16. If flight 253 had crashed, nobody would know that the bomb was in Umar's underwear. An unsuccesful staged attack was necessary to show where the bomb was held. This was needed to sell the American public that body scanners were needed to prevent similar future attacks.
17. The story of Umar obtaining his bomb in another country and wearing it to Schiphol is not logical. It is much more likely that he was given the defective bomb at or near the airport. It is likely that the second man taken into custody in Detroit gave him the bomb at Schiphol. My theory is that the bomb sniffing dog (which we witnessed) in Detroit sniffed bomb residue in his bag after we landed.
18. Umar could have been stopped in Amsterdam after boarding and been charged with various charges that would have resulted in a life sentence. Instead he was allowed to fly into U.S. airspace and light his bomb there, over Detroit, on Christmas Day in order to make this a MUCH large media story to usher in the body scanners.
19. How did Umar pick his window seat over the gas tank when he paid cash for his ticket? (You must buy your ticket with credit in order to pick your seat).
20. Other terrorist attack videos are released within hours. The relevant video in this case has never been released. Note that Schiphol airport has more cameras than any airport in the world.
21. The bomb was lit in the cabin and not in the bathroom so that it could be filmed and make more of a media event than a dud bomb lit in a bathroom.
22. Obama's "failed to connect the dots speech" is discredited by the Congressional testimony of Patrick Kennedy of the State Department. Kennedy indicated that, in so many words, that the government was tracking Umar and did not revoke his visa in order to track him into the U.S. This is almost, but not quite an admission that he was let into the U.S. on purpose.
23. The Congressional testimony of Michael Leiter indicated that the U.S. Government frequently lets terrorists into the U.S.
24. In early 2010, a Mr. Wolf appeared on the Keith Olberman Show and indicated that the Obama administration was looking into the possibility that this was an intentional plot by a U.S. intelligence agency.
25. Watch the Congressional testimony of Patrick Kennedy (available on the internet) and watch how he does vocabulary gymnastics to avoid saying that this was an intentional plot by U.S. intelligence.
26. Dutch military police initially indicated that Umar did not go through normal security measures. This was only reported once.
27. Why did a passenger call me in early January 2010 and attempt to convince me that I did not see Umar being escorted around security, but I instead witnessed a minor child being taken through security. This was untrue. I later found out that such passenger works for a contractor that receives a great deal of business from the Department of Defense.
28. Why does the mainstream media continue to not investigate this story and continue to not report my eyewitness account?
29. A second passenger contacted me and confirmed my acount of the Sharp Dressed Man. She is scared and refuses to come forward.
30. Why have nearly all of the passengers refused to talk about this case?
31. Why were a great deal of the passengers, military personnel, government workers and government contractors?
32. Why did the prosecution indicate at a recent hearing that it was still withholding some evidence that was deemed to be secret (top seret?). What could be so secret if the government was not involved in the plot?
33. Why has the online Detroit Free Press site erased all underwear bomber articles that support my theory on the case, but retained older articles that support the official story?

It is unfortunate that the upcoming trial will be nothing but a farce and deceitful theatre to imbed lies in the minds of the sheeple.

Alex speaks with eyewitness Kurt Haskell with the latest on the Underwear bomber trial, which is slated to begin jury selection after Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was ruled competent to stand trial. Haskell famously witnessed a ‘sharp-dressed man’ helping Abdulmutallab get on-board the plane, and despite being attacked by authorities, was later vindicated as correct.

The Visa of Umar Abdulmutallab is discussed, and the fact that he was allowed by the government to enter the United States. They let him in and obviously were tracking him. So for him to get on the plane, it was known.

Airline Attack Suspect Has Outbursts In Court
Jury Selection, Testimony Begins In Nigerian Man's Trial

POSTED on Channel 4: Wednesday, September 14, 2011
UPDATED: 7:09 pm EDT September 14, 2011
http://www.clickondetroit.com/news/29177631/detail.html

DETROIT -- Investigators interviewing a Nigerian man accused of trying to blow up a Detroit-bound flight didn't read him his Miranda rights because they wanted to know if other suicide bombers were in the air and didn't want to lose his cooperation, an FBI agent testified Wednesday.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab is asking a judge to suppress his statements to agents at the University of Michigan hospital where he was being treated for second-degree burns to his groin on Christmas 2009. The government, however, said the Miranda right to stay silent doesn't apply if authorities believe there could be an imminent threat to safety.

FBI agent Timothy Waters said al-Qaida often stages coordinated attacks, and Abdulmutallab had already succeeded at getting past airport security in Amsterdam.

"If you introduce Miranda to individuals not from the United States, it stops the process dead in the tracks," Waters told a judge. "We needed information right now ... about individuals willing to martyr themselves on other aircraft."

The hearing was dominated by testimony about Abdulmutallab's care and subsequent interview at the hospital in the hours after the incident aboard Northwest Airlines Flight 253. He's accused of trying to detonate a bomb in his underwear. Passengers saw flames and pounced on him.

Separately, more than 200 people were at the courthouse Wednesday to fill out a questionnaire as potential jurors. Jury selection begins Oct. 4.

Courtroom Sketches: Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab

"We are not trying to find people who have never heard of this case," U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds told them. "We are looking for people who can serve as fair, objective and impartial jurors."

Abdulmutallab looked visibly upset during the court hearing, putting his feet up on the desk in front of him and having outbursts in which he said things like, "Osama is alive," "Jihad" and "I'm being forced to wear prison clothes."

At one point, he addressed media who was in the hearing by saying, "Don't say Osama is dead."

Abdulmutallab has raised two issues in his effort to get his statements thrown out: Miranda and the fact that he had been given drugs to deal with pain from his injuries.

Julia Longenecker, a nurse at University of Michigan hospital, said Abdulmutallab was treated with Fentanyl while staff scrubbed his burns, an "extremely painful" process.

She acknowledged the drug can create a "high" but believed Abdulmutallab was not impaired.

"It's a drug that doesn't knock you out," Longenecker said. "He wasn't very talkative but he made some comments. He was very lucid."

Abdulmutallab, a Muslim, wanted Christmas music turned off but the request was denied.

Longenecker said she was ordered at some point to stop giving the painkiller. She couldn't recall whom, other than "somebody more important than myself."

During his testimony, Waters denied ordering an end to the medicine.

Underwear bomber shouts 'Osama's alive;' FBI says he wasn't given Miranda
BY DAVID ASHENFELTER AND TRESA BALDAS

An FBI agent testified today that he did not read Miranda rights to the 24-year-old Nigerian student who is accused of trying to blow up a Detroit-bound jetliner on Christmas Day 2009 because he was worried about other suicide bombers.

In a jury selection hearing, FBI Agent Timothy Waters testified that he questioned Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab at the hospital for about 50 minutes. The hearing will resume Thursday.

Waters, an FBI terrorism expert, said that from experiences abroad, reading non-U.S. citizens Miranda rights complicates the ability to get information quickly.

“It stops the process dead in its tracks,” Waters said. “I didn’t feel it was necessary."

He said Abdulmutallab admitted he was an al-Qaida operative from Yemen, talked about how he had become radicalized and about other al-Qaida operatives with whom he had met after going to Yemen from Nigeria.

As he arrived in court today, Abdulmutallab was apparently in a foul mood.

“Osama’s alive,” Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab shouted as he entered a courtroom in Detroit this morning. “I’m forced to wear prison clothes.”

Abdulmutallab, wearing khaki prison pants, a white T-shirt and black skull cap, refused to stand when U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds, who was in another room with prospective jurors, asked him to stand with others in her courtroom several floors away.

While Edmunds briefed jurors about the allegations against him, Abdulmutallab hollered “jihad” and stared at the ceiling when she told jurors about the alleged plot to blow up the plane with a bomb in his underwear.

During most of the 25-minute jury instruction, Abdulmutallab sat at the defense table with his standby lawyer, Anthony Chambers, leaning back in his chair with his hands clasped under his chin. At one point, he put his foot on the defense table.

Federal marshals stood over him while he misbehaved. The prospective jurors could observe his antics on a two-way closed circuit television monitor.

During her presentation to jurors, Edmunds said: “We are not trying to find people for this jury who have never heard of this case. ... We are looking for people who ... are fair, objective and impartial.”

The trial is to get under way Oct. 11 and take four weeks. Edmunds planned to address a second batch of prospective jurors at 1 p.m. today. All told, 250 prospective jurors will show up for court today.

After instructing the jury and leaving them to fill out a questionnaire, Edmunds conducted a hearing to decide several requests from Abdulmutallab, including one to be released claiming he’s being unlawfully detained by the U.S. government. Specifically, he has argued in court documents "all Muslims should only be ruled by the law of the Quran."

She denied the request.

Abdulmutallab also wants Edmunds to suppress incriminating statements he made to federal agents while being treated at the burn unit of the University of Michigan Hospital after his bomb misfired. Among the statements he made to agents was that he was working on the behalf of al-Qaida, court records show.

During an hour of testimony, Julia Longenecker, a nurse who treated his burns, said he never complained of any pain and was lucid and aware of his surroundings while nurses scrubbed and wrapped his burns.

His only complaint, she testified, was the Christmas music playing in the background. “He asked if we could turn it off,” she said. “It was Christmas Day and we were working, but we didn’t turn it off.”

She said he was very polite throughout the one-hour procedure: “He wasn’t mean, he wasn’t hostile. ... He was always even-keeled”

On cross-examination by Chambers, she admitted that she was told not to give him additional fentanyl pain medication before he was to be questioned by agents. But she couldn’t remember who gave the order. She said she would have insisted he receive more fentanyl if she thought he was in pain.

After treatment, she said Abdulmutallab was taken to a hospital room where FBI agents questioned him. She said agents were polite during questioning.

During cross-examination, Chambers tried and failed to get her to concede that Abdulmutallab could have been high on fentanyl.

When the evidentiary hearing resumed after a brief recess, Edmunds noticed that Abdulmutallab had put on a white dress shirt but left if unbuttoned in the front.

"I will just tell you that if you want to make a better impression on the jury, you should button the shirt,” Edmunds told him. He said he wanted to wear it unbuttoned.

After lunch when the hearing resumed, Abdulmutallab told reporters when he walked in: "Don't say Osama is dead."

After all the questionnaires are filled out, jury selection will resume Oct. 4. Notified prospective jurors will report in small groups for individual questioning, known as voir dire. This is when the defense and prosecution question each individual, looking for possible biases or red flags, and pick the actual jury.

The trial is expected to run Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. It will be open to the public with limited seating.

Au­thor­ities have said that Abdulmutallab is an al-Qaida op­erative who trained in Yemen for the sui­cide mis­sion, which was foiled when a pas­sen­ger subdued Abdulmutallab. He is fac­ing nu­mer­ous crim­inal charges, including con­spir­acy to commit terror­ism, and faces life in prison if convicted.

In September, Abdulmutallab fired his govern­ment-ap­pointed lawyers and suggested that he wanted to plead guilty to some charges. He has said noth­ing about a plea since.

Chambers has said that a plea is unlikely.

"We will challenge everything," Chambers said earlier this year, noting his client "has a full understanding of his situation."

The hearing will resume at 9 a.m. Thursday with Prof. Eugene Schoener on the witness stand. Schoener, a professor of pharmacology, testified that Abdulmutallab wasn't mentally impaired from the fentanyl when agents questioned him. Chambers is to cross-examine Schoener on Thursday.

In the second video...
Kurt mentions Judge Edmonds and her rulings during these hearings.
The "secret evidence" is withheld from the defense and only Judge Edmonds can see this.
Kurt again brings up the fact that the government controls everything in this case, such as the release of information and what activities can take place, etc.
Kurt also points out that no co-conspirators are named in this charge of conspiracy.

Kurt brings up the cameraman at around the 8:00 minute mark. The camera guy had called Kurt out of the blue one day.

Kurt says he needs some more help. He has done everything that he can do to expose this thing. He could use some help, some activism.

Jury Pool Whittled In Detroit Airline Attack Case
Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab Back In Court Tuesday

DETROIT -- A judge and lawyers settled Tuesday on 80 people for next week's first round of jury selection in the trial of a man charged with trying to blow up an international flight near Detroit on behalf of al-Qaida.

More than 200 people filled out a questionnaire this month and dozens were eliminated for work, vacation, school, even a pending kidney donation. Others were excused for having strong feelings about Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a 24-year-old Nigerian accused of wearing a bomb inside his underwear on Christmas 2009.

A woman wrote that she feared "crazy relatives of the defendant waiting in the shadows," U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds said. "I think we'll excuse her."

At times, Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Martin urged the judge not to dismiss prospective jurors based on the questionnaire without a face-to-face interview. Edmunds, however, said the pool was large enough to make cuts and move on.

"We've got lots of other people who don't say, `He is guilty,"' the judge said.

Jury selection starts Oct. 4, followed by opening statements a week later.

Abdulmutallab is charged with trying to destroy Northwest Airlines Flight 253 from Amsterdam. He is acting as his own lawyer but didn't speak as the jury pool was whittled, relying instead on court-appointed attorney Anthony Chambers, who is assisting him.

Edmunds also planned to settle some disputes about trial evidence Tuesday, including the government's request to show video demonstrations of an explosive containing the same chemicals as the ones possessed by Abdulmutallab.

Judge dismisses potential jurors in underwear bomber case for health reasons, prejudicial beliefs

A federal judge today excused several potential jurors from the so-called underwear bomber trial for reasons ranging from health care issues to people having negative views about Muslims.

Among those excused from the jury in the case against Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab are three people who had pre-paid vacation plans, a person who was donating a kidney, a persistent cougher with sleep apnea and someone with an intestinal disorder. Abdulmutallab is going on trial Oct. 11 on charges of attempting to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner on Christmas Day in 2009.

This morning’s hearing also revealed that several potential jurors came to court with their minds already made up that he was guilty, and some expressed strong negative views about Muslims.

Comments on jurors’ questionnaires included, "I feel the defendant is guilty,” while another said he does not trust Muslims and that the defendant should be sent to Guantanamo.

One felt the defendant was caught red-handed. Another said he dislikes Muslims and wrote, “He did it.”

To ensure that a panel of impartial jurors would decide the fate of Abdulmutallab, U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds stressed the need to keep people with strong prejudices and predispositions of guilt off the panel.

However, Edmunds noted reading the jurors’ minds can get tricky.

“Sometimes, you just wonder what’s in their heads when they answer these questions,” she said before adjourning the hearing for a break.

Of the 240 prospective jurors who filled out questionnaires, 60 passed muster with the defense, prosecution and judge as a “yes” or a “maybe." In total, 80 prospective jurors will be called back for individual questioning on Oct. 4. Of those, 37 will be picked, ultimately to be winnowed down to 12.

Edmunds today will also consider a request by the government to show jurors a video of a bomb demonstration mimicking the explosive that prosecutors say Abdulmutallab concealed in his underwear.

In court documents filed last week, federal prosecutors asked permission to admit as evidence a demonstration that is designed to show how Abdulmutallab tried to blow up an airliner Christmas Day 2009 with explosives hidden in his underwear. Specifically, prosecutors want to show jurors demonstrations involving a bomb that is similar to the one Abdulmutallab was hiding in his briefs, documents state.

Prosecutors cited other court cases where judges have allowed videotaped explosions involving bomb replicas to be played in court.

Edmunds will consider the request this afternoon.

Underwear-bombing jury may see video demo of how explosive was used

The jury in the so-called underwear bombing trial may get to see a replica of the explosive the terror suspect hid in his underwear, and how he set it off on an airplane carrying more than 300 people.

In court documents filed today, federal prosecutors asked a judge to allow them to admit as evidence a demonstration that is designed to show how Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab tried to blow up an airliner Christmas Day 2009 with explosives hidden in his underwear. Specifically, prosecutors want to show jurors demonstrations involving a bomb that is similar to the one Abdulmutallab was hiding in his briefs.

Prosecutors cited other court cases where judges have allowed videotaped explosions involving bomb replicas to be played in court.

“Abdulmutallab’s bomb was essentially a plastic bag containing PETN," an explosive, prosecutors wrote in court documents. “The video recorded test explosions that the government seeks to admit involved the detonation of PETN in a plastic bag.”

Prosecutors filed their request as both sides get ready to pick a jury on Oct. 4 in the highly-anticipated terror trial. Opening statements are scheduled for Oct. 11.

Abdulmutallab, who is representing himself, is on trial for allegedly trying to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner on Christmas Day 2009 with a bomb hidden in his underwear. His plot was foiled when he was overcome by passengers and crew members.

Abdulmutallab also has a standby lawyer to help him at trial, prominent defense attorney Anthony Chambers.
In another request filed today, prosecutors want to admit as evidence a 3-minute 42-second clip of the Al Qaeda-produced video, "America and the Final Trap." In the video, Osama bin Laden makes statements commending Abdulmutallab, and prosecutors want to use them against him at trial.

Prosecutors, meanwhile, also want to prohibit the defense from asking an FBI agent – in front of the jury – whether or not he read Abdulmutallab his Miranda rights before questioning him. Abdulmutallab was not read his rights when he gave incriminating statements to FBI agents in a hospital room shortly after his foiled bomb attempt, which severely burned his genitals and legs.

U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds, however, ruled last week that the agent was not required to advise him of his Miranda rights because there was a potential national security threat, and agents needed to know quickly if there were other suicide bombers in other airplanes.

Fearing the defense may bring the issue up at trial, prosecutors today asked Edmunds to keep the Miranda issue out at trial, arguing that if the jury learns he wasn’t read his rights, “the jury will be misled into thinking that agent did something impermissible by not advising him, contrary to the court’s ruling.”

Prosecutors also asked Edmunds to reserve seats in the courtroom for nine victims that plan to attend the trial.

The trial is expected to last four weeks.

Among the government’s key pieces of evidence is a statement that Abdulmutallab made to agents in a hospital room, in which he admitted that he was an al-Qaida operative from Yemen, talked about how he had become radicalized and about how he and others discussed ways to attack the U.S.

The defense tried to get the statement thrown out. Edmunds has kept it in.

Are photos of burned genitals key evidence in underwear bomber case?
by Tresa Baldas

The so-called under­wear bomber charged with trying to blow up a Detroit-bound air­liner has some sensitive govern­ment data in his pos­ses­sion: photos of his burned gen­itals.

The pic­ture is part of a batch of photos that fed­eral pros­ecutors re­leased early to Nige­rian terror suspect Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who is rep­resent­ing him­self and has until this Friday to chal­lenge the govern­ment's ev­idence.

Pros­ecutors re­leased sev­eral photos to Abdulmutallab on June 1, including five depicting se­vere burns to his gen­italia and thighs, which he sustained af­ter he al­legedly tried to blow up a Detroit-bound air­liner on Christmas Day 2009 us­ing explosives hidden in his under­wear.

Fed­eral pros­ecutors disclosed the exis­tence of the photos in a court doc­u­ment that asks the court to de­ny a request by Abdulmutallab's le­gal advis­er to delay the Oct. 4 trial date. That advis­er, prom­inent Detroit attor­ney Antho­ny Chambers, has argued in court doc­u­ments that he needs more time to review new ev­idence in the case to mount a prop­er defense.

The new ev­idence includes FBI doc­u­ments that relate to the construction of the bomb, records show. Fed­eral pros­ecutors also have re­leased a video ti­tled "America and the Final Trap," which con­tains a seg­ment in which var­ious al-Qaida of­ficials, including Osama Bin Laden, talk about Abdulmutallab, records show. The video also includes an excerpt of the martyrdom video recorded by Abdulmutallab prior to his foiled mis­sion, records show.

Pros­ecutors, meanwhile, argue that the amount of new ev­idence in the case is small, and does not warrant putting off the trial.

"Simply put, the need­less delays have to stop," As­sistant U.S. Attor­neys Jonathan Tukel, Cathleen Corken and Michael Mar­tin wrote in court doc­u­ments filed Friday. They also argued that any delay requests need to come from Abdulmutallab, not his stand-by counsel.

Abdulmutallab, a Nige­rian national, is accused of trying to set off explosives that were hidden in his under­wear while he was aboard Northwest Air­lines Flight 253, which carried 279 pas­sen­gers and 11 crew members.

Au­thor­ities have said that Abdulmutallab is an al-Qaida op­erative trained in Yemen for the sui­cide mis­sion, which was foiled when a pas­sen­ger subdued Abdulmutallab.

He is fac­ing nu­mer­ous crim­inal charges, including con­spir­acy to commit terror­ism.

In September, Abdulmutallab fired his govern­ment-ap­pointed lawyers and suggested that he wanted to plead guilty to some charges. He has said noth­ing about a plea since.

Forged Passport In Underwear Bomber Case?
by Kurt Haskell - Sept 27 & 28, 2011 - HASKELL FAMILY BLOG
http://haskellfamily.blogspot.com/2011/09/proof-underwear-bombers-passport-photo.html

I spent much of this evening reading court documents from the underwear bomber (Umar) case. For those that are interested, you can read them at:

http://www.mied.uscourts.gov/hpc/

There are many gems in the documents, but I'll only focus on one of them tonight.
While reading the documents, I found what I believe to be another smoking gun. Since day one when Lori and I exited flight 253, I've maintained that Umar boarded flight 253 with the help of a sharp dressed man and WITHOUT A PASSPORT. Early on in this case, Judge Edmunds issued a protective order forbidding either side from discussing any of the evidence in the case. However, that didn't stop the U.S. Government from releasing propaganda pictures into the media. The most famous picture is a picture of Umar with law enforcement on the plane. The two that were the most obvious frauds were the picture of Umar's minimally damaged underwear and the picture of Umar's passport. The passport picture was released for no other reason then to attempt to discredit my eyewitness testimony. In no other case (to my knowledge) has the government released a picture of some one's passport to the media. I have taken great offense to the release of the passport and it is with great pleasure that I now believe I can show it was a fake. Interestingly enough, stand-by attorney Chambers indicated at the July 7, 2011 hearing that he had just received a copy of Umar's passport. Chambers referred to this (and some other evidence) document as "significant evidence". We must now ask why it is considered "significant evidence" by Chambers. I also have to wonder why such a seemingly insignificant document like a passport was withheld for 18 months from the defense (Maybe it took that long to create a good fake?).

When I looked for the picture of Umar's passport tonight, it was not easy to find. I did however, manage to find a copy of it here:

http://www.911oz.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=6651

I encourage everyone to take a very good look at Umar's signature, particularly the "m" and the "a" in Umar. Also note that it doesn't include his last name. Further, the picture doesn't particularly look like Umar and seems to show a man with a receding hairline. At this time, I will leave a discussion of the picture for another day.

Now take a look at this document filed by Umar and written in his own handwriting:

http://www.mied.uscourts.gov/hpc/docs/10.Defendant_Motion_for_Detention_Hearing.pdf

Note that the "a's" are completely different in that the "a" in the passport photo has a closed loop while in the court document, the "a's" are open at the top. Further, note that Umar's "m" is significantly larger than the "a" is in the passport photo. Also, note that the "m's" in the court document look significantly different then the "m" in the passport. Specifically, the "m's" in the court document are the same size as the "a's" are and are significantly more slanted and pointed then the "m's" in the passport. In the court document, you can also see that most of the "m's" contain a side arm while the "m" in the passport photo does not. Lastly, note that the passport appears to have very neat handwriting while the court document has very sloppy handwriting.

Of course, the conclusion is that one of the documents is a fake. It is much more likely that the passport photo is a fake as there would be no legitimate reason to fake the court document. If the passport photo, is in fact a fake, we must ask why the government would release a fake passport photo. The only logical explanation is that a real passport did not exist. Obviously, the U.S. Government felt a need early on to release a fraudulent passport to discredit my eyewitness account. The reason for the attempt to discredit me is obvious and points directly at my theory in this case.

Umar was escorted through security without a passport and with an intentionally defective bomb in order to stage a false flag terrorist attack.

Note that in this court document, Chambers has indicated that U.S. Government agents have given contradictory statements (see item 9):

http://www.mied.uscourts.gov/hpc/docs/05.Motion_for_Disclosure_of_Grand_Jury_Materials.pdf

Surprise, surprise, U.S. Government agents are giving false statements. Why should we be surprised when their employer releases a fraudulent document?

*** I am editing this post this morning (9-28-11) to make one comment about the passport photo. The passport appears to be issued on September 15, 2005. Umar was age 18 on that date. The man in the passport piture clearly has a receding hairline (and to me doesn't look like Umar). The possibility of an 18 year old having a receding hairline is remote at best. It appears that the U.S. Government has once again been exposed in this matter.

3, RE: Umar Farouk Adbulmutallab

Comments: Tony, I am assuming that since I haven’t heard from you that I will not be testifying. I assume that to mean that Umar has chosen to not use the entrapment/excessive government involvement defense. That is unfortunate and leads me to believe that Umar is complicit with the government for some reason. Nonetheless, I am attaching my recent blog post to make you aware of some passport anomalies. Obviously, I was there when Umar was posed as a Sudanese refugee and boarded without a passport. Thus, I know that he didn’t have a passport. I doubt that you will have enough control in the trial to admit the passport anomalies into evidence. However, I am providing this evidence to you for impeachment purposes on the off chance that you can use it. I know there is a great deal of evidence in this case and I just wanted to make you aware of this information. Good luck with the trial. I am not envious of your position. I will be there whenever my schedule allows.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
(In the comment section "Stats" says: "I think the passport photo looks like Umar...")

(Kurt responds...)
This is Kurt:

Stats, thanks for your honest opinion, but I very much disagree that the picture is Umar. Having seen him in person many times at court, I have to say that it isn't him. It does look similar to him, but it's not him. Do you really think it is a picture of an 18 year old? An 18 year old with a receding hairline to boot? Also, you really think the handwriting is similar? To me it is very obviously not. Having said that, remember I saw him attempt to board without a passport. Also, the prosecution withheld a copy of Umar's passport from the defense until June 2011? They did this to allow stand-by attorney Chambers the least amount of time and ability to hire experts to verify its authenticity. I don't mean to be argumentative, but we'll have to agree to disagree.

As to the reasons I believe the sharp dressed man (SDM) is a U.S. agent, see below in no particular order:

1. The SDM spoke perfect American English without an accent.
2. The FBI refused to have me identify SDM or show me his picture.
3. The U.S. Government refused to release the airport video.
4. U.S. Judge Nancy Edmunds ordered that all evidence including the video be sealed under a protective order.
5. The U.S. Government needed a terrorist attack to implement body scanners, increase the presence of TSA everywhere, continue the justification for two fraudulent wars (no terrorist attacks from 2001-2009) and renew the Patriot Act(up for renewal February 2010).
6. The FBI admitted to handing out fake bombs to the Portland Christmas Tree Bomber and Wrigley Field bomber in 2010 just months after the underwear bomber event (My theory is that U.S. intelligence agents gave Umar an intentionally defective bomb and led him through seurity to stage a fake terrorist attack).
7. U.S. media has actively concealed the truth about this case (for example, refusing to report the findings of the Congressional Hearings).
8. The Congressional testimony of Patrick Kennedy is telling. Watch his testimony on youtube. He squirms in his seat to not admit that U.S. intelligence did the attack intentionally. However, he did admit that U.S. intelligence was tracking Umar and wanted him to enter the U.S. to catch accomplices. Then he says "we'll talk about the rest in closed session". So they wanted Umar in the U.S. but didn't allow him on the plane. Yeah right. Note that I expect to see the SDM at the trial as a witness. I now have reason to believe that SDM was the person who conducted the "security interview" that is done at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam.

There are probably more reasons, but these are just off the top of my head. Thus, I believe the U.S. staged the plot and not ISI or Mossad.

NIGERIAN BOMBER BOUGHT TICKET IN GHANA
By thewillnigeria.com - Thewillnigeria.com Austyn Ogannah
Nigeria | Mon, 28 Dec 2009

PASSPORT NUMBER ALSO REVEALED, ZUMUNTA ASSOCIATION USA CONDEMNS ACT

Lagos (THEWILL)- THEWILL has continued to investigate the attempted terrorist attack in the United States by a Nigerian, Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab.

The Director General of Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), Dr Harold Demuren told journalists on Boxing Day that Umar bought his ticket at the airport office of KLM Airlines in Accra, Ghana without leaving any contact details then returned to Nigeria.

"The ticket information revealed that the ticket was purchased in Accra, for $2, 831, with original routing for Lagos - Amsterdam- Detroit- Amsterdam- Accra, but was later re-issued to read Lagos- Amsterdam- Detroit- Lagos at the KLM office in Lagos. The return leg of the ticket was to set at January 8, 2010 out of Detroit, Michigan.”

CCTV footage and passenger travelling manifest obtained show that he personally checked in at 8.30pm WAT.

The DG said, "He personally checked in at 2035 local time. The passenger did not check in any baggage but was spotted with a shoulder bag. He went through normal screening and check in process. His passport was scanned, his US visa was scanned and the advance passenger information system returned no objection. He was allotted seat number 20B on the Lagos -Amsterdam leg and seat 19A on the Amsterdam - Detroit leg.”

"The passenger possessed a Nigerian machine readable passport issued Sept 15, 2005 to expire Sept 14, 2010 with passport number A3921640. His multiple entry US visa was issued in London, UK, on June 16, 2008 and set to expire June 2010."

“The passenger presented himself to the various security personnel for screening at the airport. Thereafter, he passed through aviation security comprising of walk- through metal detector and baggage X-ray screening machine.”

“He proceeded to the boarding gate where he went through secondary screening as confirmed by KLM officials. At the closure of the departure, passenger was confirmed on board, his name was on the post.”

"We do not know, where the Nigerian got the substance from, but, it is too early to speculate because of on going investigations as we are working very hard to beef up security at all our airports,” he concluded.

A US Congressman, Peter King had alleged that security at Nigerian airports was lax claiming that the US government had given Nigerian Airports millions of dollars in equipment to enable it improve security at the airport but the Nigerian authorities have not done enough.

Meanwhile, Zumunta, an association of Nigerian Northerners in the United States in a statement released by spokesperson, Lami Dongoyaro said,“ We watched with shock and horror the news of attempted terrorist act by a Nigerian on board Northwest/Delta Airline Flight #253 from Amsterdam to Detroit, on December 25, 2009. Zumunta Association strongly condemns any act of terrorism and/or violence in whatever form. Terrorism is an alien concept to Nigerians.

“We are grateful and thankful to God that no one was hurt. We applaud the courage and heroism of some of the passengers who put their lives in danger in subduing the alleged terrorist. Nigerians are peaceful, law abiding and friendly people.

“Zumunta is calling on those concerned, especially the Federal Government of Nigeria, to cooperate fully with authorities to find the cause/s and people responsible for this despicable act. Nigerians in the United States and elsewhere stand ready to do their part in ensuring the safety of lives and property at all times. We hope that this heinous act should not be used as a blanket to judge honorable and hardworking Nigerians.”

"...The Director General of Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), Dr Harold Demuren told journalists... ...The DG said, "He personally checked in at 2035 local time. The passenger did not check in any baggage but was spotted with a shoulder bag. He went through normal screening and check in process. His passport was scanned, his US visa was scanned and the advance passenger information system returned no objection. He was allotted seat number 20B on the Lagos -Amsterdam leg and seat 19A on the Amsterdam - Detroit leg.”

"The passenger possessed a Nigerian machine readable passport issued Sept 15, 2005 to expire Sept 14, 2010 with passport number A3921640. His multiple entry US visa was issued in London, UK, on June 16, 2008 and set to expire June 2010."

“The passenger presented himself to the various security personnel for screening at the airport. Thereafter, he passed through aviation security comprising of walk- through metal detector and baggage X-ray screening machine.”

“He proceeded to the boarding gate where he went through secondary screening as confirmed by KLM officials. At the closure of the departure, passenger was confirmed on board, his name was on the post.”

"We do not know, where the Nigerian got the substance from, but, it is too early to speculate because of on going investigations as we are working very hard to beef up security at all our airports,” he concluded...."

al-Asiri - BOMB MAKER
...The 29-year-old al-Asiri was one of the first Saudis to join the Yemen-based al-Qaida branch and became its key bombmaker, designing the explosives in two attempted attacks against the United States.
His fingerprint was found on the bomb hidden in the underwear of a Nigerian man accused of trying to blow up Northwest Airlines Flight 253 over Detroit on Christmas Day 2009, according to U.S. counterterrorism officials. The attack failed because the would-be bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab botched detonating the explosives, ending up only burning himself before being wrestled away by passengers.
The explosives used in that bomb were chemically identical to those hidden inside two printers that were shipped from Yemen last year, bound for Chicago and Philadelphia in a plot claimed by al-Qaida. The bombs were intercepted in England and Dubai....

Underwear-bomb maker believed dead in Yemen strike
By LEE KEATH - Associated Press - Sat, Oct 1, 2011
http://news.yahoo.com/underwear-bomb-maker-believed-dead-yemen-strike-171458043.html

CAIRO (AP) — A Saudi militant believed killed in the U.S. drone strike in Yemen constructed the bombs for the al-Qaida branch's most notorious attempted attacks — including the underwear-borne explosives intended to a down a U.S. aircraft, and a bomb carried by his own brother intended to assassinate a Saudi prince.

The death of Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri would make the Friday drone strikes on a convoy in the central deserts of Yemen one of the most effective single blows in the U.S. campaign to take out al-Qaida's top figures.

The strike also killed Anwar al-Awlaki, a Yemeni-American cleric who had been key to recruiting for the militant group and a Pakistani-American, Samir Khan, who was a top English-language propagandist.

But Christopher Boucek, a scholar who studies Yemen and al-Qaida, said al-Asiri's death would "overshadow" that of the two Americans due to his operational importance to al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, the Yemen-based group that is considered the most active branch of the terror network.

Late Friday, two U.S. officials said intelligence indicated al-Asiri was among those killed in the strike. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because al-Asiri's death has not officially been confirmed.

The 29-year-old al-Asiri was one of the first Saudis to join the Yemen-based al-Qaida branch and became its key bombmaker, designing the explosives in two attempted attacks against the United States.

His fingerprint was found on the bomb hidden in the underwear of a Nigerian man accused of trying to blow up Northwest Airlines Flight 253 over Detroit on Christmas Day 2009, according to U.S. counterterrorism officials. The attack failed because the would-be bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab botched detonating the explosives, ending up only burning himself before being wrestled away by passengers.

The explosives used in that bomb were chemically identical to those hidden inside two printers that were shipped from Yemen last year, bound for Chicago and Philadelphia in a plot claimed by al-Qaida. The bombs were intercepted in England and Dubai.

In perhaps his most ruthless operation, al-Asiri turned his younger brother, Abdullah, into a human bomb in a 2009 attempt to kill Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, the kingdom's top counterterrorism official and son of its interior minister.

Abdullah volunteered for the suicide mission, asking to replace another militant named to carry it out, according to an acccount in Sada al-Malahem, an Arabic-language Web magazine issued by al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula. Abdullah pretended he was surrendering to Saudi authorities, and Prince Mohammed agreed to receive him in his home in Jiddah during a gathering to celebrate the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

While talking to the prince, Abdullah blew himself up. The prince, however, escaped with only injuries.

Saudi officials have said the bomb was "inside" Abdullah's body, but explosives experts believe that al-Asiri strapped the bomb between his brother's legs.

"Come see my brother Abdullah's body parts. May he enjoy it, he was killed the way he had hoped for and his body was torn for the love of God," al-Asiri said afterward, according to Sada al-Malahem.

All three bombs contained a high explosive known as PETN, or pentaerythritol tetranitrate, which was also used by convicted shoe bomber Richard Reid when he tried to destroy a trans-Atlantic flight in 2001.

Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula is led by a Yemeni militant named Nasser al-Wahishi, a former aide of Osama bin Laden, and combines Yemeni fighters with the remnants of the terror network's branch in Saudi Arabia, which was largely crushed by the kingdom's security forces in the mid 2000's. The group is believed to number several hundred fighters, hiding in the mountains of Yemen where the central government has little control.

According to Sada al-Malahem, al-Asiri and his brother Abdullah were the first of the Saudi branch to pledge allegiance to al-Wahishi, after fleeing Saudi Arabia following a month chase by Saudi authorities. After their allegiance, the magazine issued the call for other Saudi members to come to Yemen.

Al-Asiri and his brother abruptly left their Mecca home three years ago, said their father, a four-decade veteran of the Saudi military. Aside from a brief phone call to say they had left the country, he never heard from them again.

According to Sada al-Malahem, al-Asiri and his friends originally planned to go fight the Americans in Iraq, but Saudi police raided the apartment where they were hiding and arrested them.

"They put me in prison and I began to see the depths of (the Saudis) servitude to the Crusaders and their hatred for the true worshippers of God, from the way they interrogated me," the magazine quotes him as saying.

Upon his release, al-Asiri tried to create a new militant cell in Saudi Arabia but was once again discovered. Six of his colleagues were killed and he and his brother fled south to the Asir mountains where they holed up for weeks.

They entered Yemen on Aug. 1, 2006, and met with al-Wahishi, who had escaped from prison just months earlier, and became the nucleus of the new al-Qaida affiliate, said the account, which could not be independently confirmed.

Top al-Qaeda bomb maker survived drone strike
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/al-qaeda/8803080/Top-al-Qaeda-bomb-maker-survived-drone-strike.html
By Our Foreign Staff
12:50AM BST 03 Oct 2011

The hopes of US officials have been dashed after it emerged that al-Qaeda's top bomb maker in Yemen survived the drone strike that killed American terror cleric Anwar al-Awlaki.
American propagandist Samir Khan, who published a slick English-language web magazine that spouted al-Qaeda's anti-Western ideology, died alongside Awlaki in the strike on Friday.

US intelligence had said it appeared that bomb maker Ibrahim al-Asiri was among the dead, leading to hopes they had killed three of al-Qaeda's top leaders.

However on Sunday a Yemen official confirmed that Asiri did not die in the attack. It was not clear is Asiri had been in the attack but survived, or if he was not in the area at the time of the strike.

The Saudi-born Asiri, 29, who is of Pakistani descent, was tied to the so-called underwear bomb that was used in an attempt to bring down a Detroit-bound jetliner on Christmas Day in 2009. A Nigerian man has been charged in that attack.

Asiri was also believed to have been behind an intercepted pair of explosives-laden printers that were mailed from Yemen to the US in 2010.

UPDATED: Nigerian Passenger Tries To Blow Up Northwest Airline
By thewillnigeria.com - Thewillnigeria.com
Nigeria | Sat, 26 Dec 2009

UMAR FAROUK ABDULMUTALLAB BOARDED A KLM FLIGHT FROM LAGOS, NIGERIA. NIGERIAN INFORMATION MINISTER CONTACTED BY THEWILL NEWSPAPER.

San Francisco (THEWILL) - A Nigerian national, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, 23, is responsible for detonating several small sophisticated explosive devices on a Northwest flight, on Christmas Day, from Amsterdam, Netherlands, to Detroit Michigan, according to a federal government circular.

A passenger on the plane, Syed Jafry who was sitting on seat number 16G told CNN that just after the announcement from the pilot that the plane was about to land, the bomber who was seating on 19A suddenly lit the device which went up in flames. He said it looked like the device malfunctioned because it only popped and started a fire before he was subdued.

US Republican Congressman, Peter King told CNN that the Nigerian, who is on a database of persons with terrorist connections to Al-Qaeda but not on a "no-fly" list started his journey on a KLM flight from Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos, Nigeria before boarding the Northwest plane (Delta), an Airbus 330 carrying 278 passengers from Amsterdam where he ignited the sophisticated explosive devices just as the plane was landing in Detroit causing several minor injuries to passengers. A spokesperson for Delta, which is parent company of Northwest, Susan Elliot said the passenger was subdued before he could cause more damages.

The circular from the government said the Nigerian has been taken into custody and is being treated for injuries he sustained during the incident.

The White House has said the incident is a terrorist attack.

“The suspect is claiming to have extremist affiliation and that the device was acquired in Yemen along with instructions as to when it should be used,” the document said.

Umar Abdulmutallab, born on December 22, 1986 is being held on immigration charges until full terror charges are assembled because since he was on a terrorist watch list there was no way he would have been issued a US visa.

The Department of Homeland Security issued a statement on Friday warning that passengers should be ready for more additional screening to ensure safety on both domestic and foreign routes.

The FBI is investigating the incident, according to spokeswoman Sandra Berchtold.

Two passengers were taken to the University of Michigan Medical Center in Ann Arbor.

President Obama who is holidaying in Hawaii has been briefed.

Our call at 2.50 a.m WAT to Nigerian information minister, Prof. Dora Akunyili to bring the development to her attention was not accepted but we got a hold of her assistant, Mary Ikoku who said her boss was on vacation but would reach her as soon as possible to alert her on the development.

No one was available to speak to THEWILL when we called the Nigerian Embassy in Washington DC.

On Tuesday a man had his hands blown off at the Logemo House office in Lagos of Superscreen Television while trying to deliver parcel bombs to senior executives of the station.

"...While researching these and other "terrorist" attacks, I could not help but notice the lack of "terrorist" attacks from 2002-2008...."--- Kurt Haskell

A Closer Look at Selected Domestic "Terrorist Attacks" From The Past Decade
by Kurt Haskell - Sunday, October 02, 2011
from the HaskellFamily blog
http://haskellfamily.blogspot.com/2011/10/closer-look-at-selected-domestic.html

Over the past 21 months, I have come into contact with many people that fail to even consider the possibility that U.S. intelligence agents could have been involved in the underwear bomber plot. It is with these people in mind that I decided to write the following article. I have noticed that recent terrorist attacks within the United States have many similar characteristics. If you look at these plots together as a series of attacks, the modus operandi of U.S. intelligence agencies begins to develop. For this article, I have decided to look at only "terrorist attacks" from January 1, 2002, to the present.

1. Mohamed Mohamud (The Portland Christmas Tree Bomber)
Date Of Incident: November 26, 2010.

The 2010 Portland car bomb plot involved an incident in which Mohamud, a Somali-American student, was arrested in an FBI sting operation, after attempting to set off what he thought was a car bomb at a Christmas tree lighting in Portland, Oregon.
Mohamud had been monitored by the FBI for months. Prior to Mohamud's arrest, an undercover FBI agent, posing as a terrorist, had been in contact with him since June 2010 (A 5 month period). In preparation for the planned bombing of a public gathering, Mohamud and undercover FBI operatives drove to a remote area of Lincoln County, Oregon, where they conducted a test run on November 4, 2010 by detonating a real bomb Mohamud believed to have been hidden inside a backpack. The fake bomb was in a white van that carried six 55-gallon drums with what appeared to be real detonation cords and plastic caps. Mohamud tried to detonate the bomb by dialing a cell phone that was attached to it. When the device failed to explode, the undercover agent suggested he get out of the car to obtain better reception. When he did so, arresting agents moved in. According to the FBI, the device it provided to Mohamud had no explosive components (even the detonating caps were inert) and the public was never in any danger.

2. Sami Samir Hassoun (Wrigley Field Bomber)
Date of Incident: September 19, 2010

Hassoun placed a backpack authorities say he thought contained a bomb near Chicago's Wrigley Field. The fake but ominous looking device (a paint can fitted with blasting caps and a timer)was given to him by an FBI undercover agent. According to Hassoun's attorney, Hassoun didn't bring anything of his own making to the incident. All materials were given to him by an under cover FBI agent. Hassoun also had no apparent affiliation with extremists. The complaint alleges he raised the specter of terrorist groups only by suggesting it would be helpful to blame them for any attacks he staged. At least two FBI undercover agents got in touch with Hassoun, posing as co-plotters and eventually helped to deliver the bogus bomb.

3. Bronx Terrorism Plot
Date of Incident: May 20, 2009

On May 20, 2009, US law enforcement arrested four black Muslim men in connection with a plot to shoot down military airplanes flying out of an Air National Guard base in Newburgh, New York and blow up two synagogues in the Riverdale community of the Bronx. The events leading up to the attempted attack began in June 2008. Shahed Hussain, an Albany hotel owner and FBI informant, showed up at the Masjid al-Ikhlas mosque under the name "Maqsood", talking of jihad and violence. Hussain, a Pakistani immigrant, agreed to serve as an FBI informant after being arrested in 2002 over a scam involving driver's licenses. Four men expressed interest to Hussain. They planned to both bomb the Riverdale Temple and nearby Riverdale Jewish Center in the Bronx, and, using Stinger surface-to-air guided missiles, shoot down military planes flying out of a nearby air base. On May 6, 2009, the men traveled to Stamford, Connecticut, to pick up what they believed to be a surface-to-air guided-missile system and three improvised explosive devices, all of which were incapable of actually being used. The men placed fake bombs wired to cell phones in three separate cars outside the Riverdale Temple and nearby Riverdale Jewish Center, both in the Riverdale community of Bronx. The FBI informer also served as the driver of the suspects’ vehicle. Both the car bombs and the missiles were actually fakes given to the plotters with the help of an informant for the FBI. Each of the two homemade bombs was equipped with about 37 pounds of inert material designed to look like C-4 plastic explosive, and "there was no danger to anyone," according to the FBI. The men were returning to their vehicle and heading to attack aircraft at the Stewart Air National Guard Base in Newburgh, New York, with the fake Stinger missiles when law enforcement stopped them.

4. Antonio Martinez
Date of Incident: December 8, 2010

Martinez was arrested in an FBI sting after agents said he tried to detonate a phony bomb outside a Maryland military recruitment center. The FBI began investigating Martinez in early October 2010 after an informant pointed out postings on Martinez's Facebook page. Martinez's attorney said the lack of a recording of the informant's initial three conversations with Martinez is a sign the government was trying to obscure its role in developing the plot. It was in those conversations that Martinez first mentioned attacking the recruiting center, according to a criminal complaint. Also according to his attorney, the government "induced him to be involved in an act which was clearly the design of the government and provided Martinez with the fake bomb".

5. Rezwan Ferdaus
Date of Incident: September 28, 2011

Federal prosecutors allege in court documents that Rezwan Ferdaus outlined an elaborate plan to undercover FBI agents posing as al-Qaeda operatives that involved the use of three drone aircraft carrying deadly payloads to attack and destroy federal government landmarks. Ferdaus was arrested after allegedly accepting delivery of materials, including three grenades, six Ak-47 assault rifles and a quantity of what he believed to be powerful C-4 explosives. U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz said all of the weaponry was in the control of undercover agents who were closely monitoring the plot's developments. She said the public was never in danger.
However, some legal organizations and Muslim groups have questioned whether Ferdaus, whose activities were carried out with two undercover FBI agents posing as terrorists, would have been able to carry out such a sophisticated plot if left to his own devices. In numerous previous cases in the US, the FBI has been accused of over-zealousness in its investigations and of entrapping people into terror plots who might otherwise not have carried out an attack. On April 19, 2011, undercover agents met with Ferdaus and questioned the "feasibility" of his plan. That raises the prospect that the FBI agents were somehow goading Ferdaus into more action.
At the same meeting the undercover agents also gave financial assistance for Ferdaus to travel to Washington on a scouting trip: a fact that raises the question of whether he would have made the trip without that financial help. The undercover agents also supplied thousands of dollars in cash for Ferdaus to buy the F-86 Sabre miniature plane to be used in an attack.

Analysis Of These 5 Attacks:

When looking at these plots, the most obvious connection between them (Other than the Muslim male connection) is that the FBI provided each of these "terrorists" with fake weapons, including fake explosives, to carry out the plots. Also, each of the terrorists attempted to carry out the plots with the aid of undercover FBI agents. It is unclear to what extent the FBI agents came up with the initial idea. However, it certainly is questionable whether any of these attacks would have occurred without the aid of the undercover FBI agents. Before meeting up with the undercover FBI agents, most of these men had little to no criminal record and were guilty of no more than random terroristic thoughts. It is also very apparent that the undercover FBI agents allowed the "terrorists" to conclude a significant portion of the plots including attempting to detonate fake bombs. While researching these and other "terrorist" attacks, I could not help but notice the lack of "terrorist" attacks from 2002-2008. I can't help but question whether the increase in these attacks is related to the term of office of President Obama, which began in January 2009. As I chose to not make this article political, I won't delve into such aspect any further. During this same time period, on December 25, 2009, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the "Underwear Bomber" attempted to detonate an explosive in his underwear as he sat 8 rows in front of me.

Analysis of the Underwear Bomber Incident:

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab(Umar) allegedly received his bomb from Al Qaeda in Yemen and due to U.S. Intelligence Agencies "failing to connect the dots", was able to board flight 253 with a bomb. The U.S. Intelligence Agencies "failed to connect" the dots despite the fact that they had been warned by Umar's own father several months earlier that Umar was a threat. Further, we are told that it was this "failing to connect the dots" that led to Umar boarding, despite the Congressional testimony of Patrick Kennedy (see his testimony here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jN_33ojupTc).
This testimony from Kennedy, the Under Secretary of State, indicated that a yet to be disclosed intelligence agency was tracking Umar, and wanted to track him into the U.S. to catch "bigger fish". Now how would such agency do that if it didn't allow Umar to board a plane heading to the U.S.? What's also troubling is that nearly all of the mainstream U.S. media failed to even report on this Congressional testimony. The one newspaper that did, the Detroit News, has now erased the story from its archives. Of course, I witnessed Umar near the boarding gate of flight 253. He was escorted by a sharp dressed man, that spoke perfect American English without an accent and told the gate agent that Umar didn't have a passport, that he needed to board the plane, that he was from "Sudan, and we do this all the time". My next question is who is the "we" that he was referring to. Obviously, I have to ask what sort of U.S. authority figure in Amsterdam could say that "we" let refugees on planes all of the time without passports and apparently, has the authority to make it happen. It seems that an undercover FBI agent would fit the bill. Although Schiphol Airport has the most security cameras in the world, the airport audio and video remain unreleased under a court protective order. In December 2010, Umar's stand-by attorney, Anthony Chambers reported to the Detroit Free Press that "The Government's own experts have indicated that the bomb was impossibly defective as it lacked a blasting cap". That story has now been erased from the Free Press archives. Although pieces of the bomb laid all over the airline cabin near row 19, law enforcement officers made no effort to remove passengers from such area and passengers trampled through pieces of the bomb as they exited the plane. The NPR interview of Jay Howard, the man who sat next to Umar, is very telling (see below)(http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=123821351. In this interview, Howard relates that the FBI told him not to talk about what happened and took all of his clothes that were covered with pieces of the bomb. Although the FBI had samples of the bomb all over the airline, it seized all of his clothes to "test the bomb materials". I have to wonder if the FBI actually seized Mr. Howard's clothes in order to not let others test the bomb materials. In his NPR interview, Mr. Howard makes the following curious comment "I don't want to call him a terrorist because he hasn't been treated as a terrorist and it wasn't a national threat". Really Mr. Howard? Why wasn't it a National threat? Is this why the FBI told you not to talk about this too much? Note that I am not saying that Jay Howard was involved in this lot, but only that he knows more than he is letting on. Remember, after we exited the plane, we were taken to a baggage claim area where we stood with our carry on bags for an hour, not knowing if other bombs were located in the carry on bags. Law enforcement was not concerned, however. At this time, Umar had already exited the plane and told officers that "there is another bomb on board". Another man was taken into custody during this time, after a bomb sniffing dog found explosives in his carry on bag. The U.S. Government changed its story on who this man was 5 times before finally deciding to ignore the existence of the man entirely. It's most likely that this man was an FBI undercover agent that provided Umar with his "bomb" and the bomb resideue in his bag alerted the dog. In late 2010, Umar was charged with conspiring with "persons known and unknown" yet none of these persons have ever been named. Their involvement with the plot has never been explained. Shouldn't such persons be on the FBI's 10 Most Wanted List? Shouldn't the FBI solicit the public to help identify such individuals, who should be some of the most wanted men in the world? Not if they are FBI agents. There are very few differences between the Underwear Bomber incident and the 5 incidents I listed above. One difference being that this attack occurred on a plane which caused a fire that did indeed threaten lives. The other plots seemingly didn't risk injury to others. We must remember that the U.S. needs legitimate "terrorist attacks" to keep making money for those that benefit from the fraudulent war on terror. Also, a legitimate airline attack was needed to usher in the body scanning machines. Without a failed bomb in a terrorist's clothes, the American public would never stand for the body scanning machines. Lastly, the flight proceeded over Detroit before the "bomb" was lit, on Christmas Day, in order to make the biggest splash in the media. The U.S. Government's modus operandi of setting up these attacks with fake bombs and without risking injury to others was seemingly achieved. This led to Janet Napolitano's explicit comment that "the system worked" when referring to this attack. Janet knows what happened here, and so do I. Hopefully, I have convinced other that read this post that the U.S. Government, via its intelligence agencies, gave Umar a fake bomb and escorted him through security in order to assure a fake "terrorist attack". This "terrorist" attack occurred in order to continue padding the wallets of those that benefit from the war on terror and its repulsive body scanners. Would this plot have happened without the aid of the unnamed U.S. Intelligence Agency that allowed Umar to board, provided Umar with his fake bomb and God knows whatever else? Not a chance. I sit here writing this article a mere 30 minutes from Dearborn, Michigan, which has the largest segment of Muslims in the U.S. I realize that if the U.S. were truly in danger of terrorist attacks from Muslims, this area should be in jeopardy of suicide and car bombings that frequently occur in the middle east. These attacks do not occur here. I know why, and I ask that you also ask yourself why. Those that are hopeful that the upcoming trial will reveal anything of this sort should think again. Umar is representing himself and thereby refusing to let standy-by attorney Chambers use the entrapment defense (that he told me he would) if he was allowed to. This action by Umar is inexplicable, unless of course he is involved in the plot, has been threatened or promised a lenient sentence. I don't know which, but there seemingly is no other explanation. Obviously, there is more to this story than the FBI is telling us.

Underwear Bomber Jury Selection Hearing October 4, 2011
by Kurt Haskell
From HaskellFamily Blog - http://haskellfamily.blogspot.com/2011/10/underwear-bomber-jury-selection-hearing.html

Yesterday, I went to the first day of jury selection in the underwear bomber case. I was the only passenger from the flight present. Lori could not attend as she had a hearing in Mt. Clemens that she could not get out of. The process involved picking 40 potential jurors to bring back on October 6, 2011. The selection of the jury will be made that day from the remaining 40 potential jurors. The process I witnessed involved the judge asking questions of each juror, then the prosecution asking questions and finally the defense asking questions. The prosecution and the defense were given 6 minutes each to question each juror. Only one juror was allowed in the courtroom at a time. I was in the courtroom when Umar arrived. When he entered he said "Great Mujahideen, Anwar is alive" referring to Anwar Al Awlaki and his reported recent death. He then said "We will wipe out the U.S., the cancer that is the U.S." Judge Edmunds had not yet arrived. When Judge Edmunds got there, she told Umar he should dress better to make a better impression on the jurors. He was dressed in a white t-shirt as he always is. Umar said "I wanted to wear a Yemeni belt with a dagger, but nobody would let me". Judge Edmunds then said "I don't think you'll be bringing a dagger into my courtroom". Umar then said that he wanted to change and the court went into recess. Umar returned shortly thereafter and was dressed in a tan collared shirt and a black suit coat. When he entered the court this time he said "Allah Akbar Anwar is alive". Judge Edmunds again was not in the courtroom. Jury questioning then began. I stayed for 4 hours and watched 18 jurors get questioned. Of the 18 that were questioned, 5 were sent home and 13 told to come back on October 6, 2011. Judge Edmunds indicated that either Umar or stand-by Attorney Chambers could question the jurors, but only one could question each juror. Umar only questioned one juror. He actually did a good job in questioning the one juror. He sounded intelligent and well spoken. The juror Umar questioned was juror #119, a 60 year old white female who stated that "I am concerned about being attacked after the verdict". That is what Umar questioned her about. He wanted to know if she was concerned about being attacked after a guilty verdict or a not guilty verdict. She stated that she was concerned both ways. This juror was told to come back. What was most interesting to me was the type of questions asked by Judge Edmunds and Chambers. The following questions were asked multiple times with slightly different variations:

1. Do you think after listening to the evidence that you will be able to determine whether the Defendant actually possessed a "bomb"?

2. Do you realize that sometimes the media does not always report the truth?

Obviously, each of these questions points directly at what I've been saying for months. Umar was given a fake bomb and put on this plane intentionally to stage a false terrorist attack. Also, the question about the media indicates knowledge that the media has been complicit in the lie. I spoke to several reporters once again. They were from Reuters, AP, UPI, CNN, Detroit News, and a couple of others. Also, the Detroit Free Press reporter asked to talk to me and I said "Why? You never actually report anything that I say". Sadly, the AP was the only one to report anything that I said. Here is a link to the article (The AP is used by several media outlets):

http://www.macombdaily.com/articles/2011/10/05/news/doc4e8ba1c8dad56858908674.txt

The CNN reporter did indicate that we would continue our interview on October 6, 2011. This time, as opposed to others, it seemed as if the reporters were starting to realize that my theory of events is indeed correct. I had more of them agreeing with me instead of grilling me over the evidence. This had not previously been the case. Also, I am now seeing a change in the language in regards to how this story is reported. Previously, articles would read, Umar is "being charged with attempting to detonate . . ." Now articles are stating that "The government says" Umar intended to blow up the plane . . ." This is a small but significant change. It shows that the media is now reporting that what the government says may not be what really happened. See this story for an example:

http://www.eagletribune.com/worldnational/x597293726/Airline-attack-suspect-starts-trial-with-outburst/print

Note that none of the major media outlets reported anything in reference to the two questions I listed above, however, except for the live blog from the courthouse running on Freep.com, which only indicated the following:

12:17 p.m.
"The media is taking a beating in juror interviews. The 15th person to be questioned for jury duty – a computer analyst for a major retailer -- agreed with Edmunds that the media doesn’t always get it right. It’s the same response Edmunds got from other jurors, several of whom don’t read or listen to the news. But based on what she has seen and heard, she thinks Abdulmutallab is guilty. “I don’t believe that was an innocent act,” she said in response to Chambers’ questions."

You can look at it here for now, but look quick as the Free Press is known for erasing evidence that supports the real story of events from its website:

http://www.freep.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2011111004013

Lastly, I did have a chance to talk to Chamber's associate attorney for a minute and found out that my status as a witness is currently "undetermined". That's an improvement over what I thought it was. We agreed to meet in Chambers office soon. Final jury selection is tomorrow and I will be going down to watch the festivities. Sadly, this is the only way to find out what is really going on.

Looks Like I'll Be A Witness For The Defense In The Underwear Bomber Case
by Kurt Haskell - Thursday Oct 6, 2011
http://haskellfamily.blogspot.com/2011/10/looks-like-ill-be-witness-for-defense.html

Today was the day for final jury selection in the Underwear Bomber case. I watched some of it on Tuesday and I was interested to see which jurors were picked. The final jury was set to be picked today at 1:30. I adjusted my schedule so that I could be down there at 1:30 today. I had a trial a few blocks away that was due to last until around 1:00 today. My plan was to head over there when I finished my trial. As my trial was ending, I got the following text from my brother "I hear that you will be testifying in the underwear bomber case". This was news to me as my status as a witness was undetermined as of Tuesday. I gave my brother a call and he said he heard on the radio, that stand-by Anthony Chambers said in court this morning that I would be testifying. While walking to Federal Court to watch final jury selection, I ran into someone that works with stand-by attorney Chambers. He told me that final jury selection was done as it didn't take as long as expected. He also told me that it was Umar that said he would call me as a witness, not Chambers. He then said Chambers is right there, go talk to him and he pointed across the street. Chambers was standing on the sidewalk across the street. I talked to Chambers for a minute and we agreed to talk again soon. He said I won't be testifying for approximately another month as the trial is supposed to be lengthy. I then headed back to my office and found out that I had messages from Fox National News and the A.P. I talked to Ed White from the A.P. on Tuesday and he misquoted me in the article he wrote. Specifically, Ed White asked what I though about Umar making outbursts in court. I said the following "I saw him before boarding and he never said anything, I've seen him in court several times, and I even saw him when he lit his fake bomb and his crotch was burning and he never makes a peep. This is totally out of character for him." You can see how Ed White did a cut and paste job of my quote here:

http://www.ydr.com/crime/ci_19035789

Note that Ed White left out that I saw Umar before boarding and that he lit a fake bomb.

I talked to Ed White again today and told him that I would only talk to him if he didn't twist my words around to mean something else. He agreed, but here is the hatchet job Ed White did to my interview with him today. Note that he says I have a "wild theory" among other things:

http://www.charlotteobserver.com/2011/10/05/2666662/final-jury-pool-settled-in-underwear.html

This is the last straw in my discussions with the media. The media is nothing but a 4th branch of the government. I will no longer talk to any of them except the alternative media that has been supportive all along.

Note, however, in the above article, Chambers indicates that I may be the only defense witness called. How ironic is it that I will have Umar's life in my hands just as Umar had my life in his hands (or underwear) on Christmas Day 2009? I will be up to the task. I realize that some may not agree with me and may attempt to harm me. Nevertheless, I will speak the truth and not be intimidated. I will do this for the common good of all of the citizens of the United States. It is not often that I quote a passage from the bible, but I think it is appropriate here:

"And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

Bombshell: Underwear Bomber Calls Haskell As Defense Witness
Detroit lawyer saw well-dressed man aid Abdulmutallab through security
Paul Joseph Watson - Infowars.com - Monday, October 10, 2011
http://www.infowars.com/bombshell-underwear-bomber-calls-haskell-as-defense-witness/

In a shocking development in the trial of the accused underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, Delta Flight 253 eyewitness Kurt Haskell has been called by Abdulmutallab as a witness for the defense, a move that could blow the whole case wide open.

Detroit Lawyer Haskell has been a prominent skeptic of the government’s official version of events, having witnessed a well-dressed man help Abdulmutallab clear security before the incident on Christmas Day 2009 despite the fact that the bomber had no passport, in addition to the fact that his own father had warned U.S. intelligence officials of the threat posed by Abdulmutallab a month before the attempted attack.

It later emerged that the State Department was ordered not to revoke Abdulmutallab’s visa by “federal counterterrorism officials” ( http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=17505 ) even though the accused bomber had known terrorist ties.

Haskell maintains that Abdulmutallab was carrying a fake bomb and was the unwitting dupe in a case of government entrapment.

“Chambers indicates that I may be the only defense witness called,” writes Haskell on his blog. ( http://haskellfamily.blogspot.com/2011/10/looks-like-ill-be-witness-for-defense.html ) “How ironic is it that I will have Umar’s life in my hands just as Umar had my life in his hands (or underwear) on Christmas Day 2009? I will be up to the task. I realize that some may not agree with me and may attempt to harm me. Nevertheless, I will speak the truth and not be intimidated. I will do this for the common good of all of the citizens of the United States.”

Abdulmutallab’s court “outbursts,” in which he shouts clichéd rhetoric about the mujahadeen, Osama bin Laden and Al-Qaeda, suggest that he is being coached on how to behave and what to say, suggests Haskell. The outbursts are in complete contradiction to how he behaved during the Flight 253 incident, Haskell told the Associated Press. ( http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/airline-attack-suspect-starts-trial-outburst-14667214 )

“I saw him before boarding and he never said anything, I’ve seen him in court several times, and I even saw him when he lit his fake bomb and his crotch was burning and he never makes a peep. This is totally out of character for him,” Haskell told AP writer Ed White, although White later edited the quote.

During his interview on the Alex Jones Show today, Haskell pointed out that if Abdulmutallab chooses to reveal what he knows about the entire plot, it could be more damaging to the Obama administration than the Fast and Furious scandal, and would undermine the entire foundation of the war on terror and the TSA grope downs and body scans that were introduced in the aftermath of the event.

Abdulmutallab could reveal which intelligence agents gave him the dud bomb, while also lifting the lid on the role of Anwar al-Awlaki, who as we have documented ( http://www.prisonplanet.com/al-qaeda-mastermind-invited-to-pentagon-after-911.html ) was clearly a double agent posing as an Al-Qaeda leader while doing the bidding of the US intelligence community.

Aware that his involvement in the case and his assertions of government complicity in the aborted attack could put his life in danger, Haskell made it clear on air that he was not planning on committing suicide.

See http://911blogger.com/news/2011-10-06/kurt-haskell-looks-ill-be-witness-defense-underwear-bomber-case#comment-253723
...In 2003, two North African immigrants were convicted of providing material support and resources to terrorists, but the convictions were thrown out at the request of the U.S. Attorney’s Office after it discovered prosecutors had withheld evidence favorable to the defendants.

One of the prosecutors in the case was tried and acquitted of prosecutorial misconduct.

The government’s star witness in that case was a convicted credit card thief of questionable credibility.

Trial and The Verdict
by Lori Haskell - Thursday Oct 13, 2011
Haskell Family Blog - http://haskellfamily.blogspot.com/2011/10/trial-and-verdict.html

Trial for the Underwear Bomber started this week, on Tuesday (Oct 11). Since neither Kurt or I had been contacted about being witnesses or being sequestered from the courtroom, we decided to head down to the trial in the hopes of being able to observe. Seats were reserved for all victims, and we really wanted to be there as much as possible. When going through security on the first floor of the court, we ran into someone who works for Anthony Chambers, who told us a pre-trial Motion had been filed that morning to exclude Kurt and I from being in the courtroom for the trial as we may be potential witnesses. We decided to head up and see what happened anyway, since the Motion was not ExParte and had not yet been granted.

Headed up to Floor 8, where Judge Edmunds is. Had to go through more security and obtain a pass to wear allowing us in the court. Sat down in the spot indicated for victims and waited for things to start. The trial started with the pre-trial motions, which one was filed by the prosecution and two by the defense. The prosecution actually filed a Motion that listed Kurt and I, by name, asking that we not sit in on trial as we may be witnesses for the defense. Judge Edmunds excluded Kurt from the courtroom, but said she was not excluding me since I was not on the witness list. I had to stand, and she told me that she did not want me to discuss anything with Kurt about the trial, which I agreed to.

Kurt left, and the other pre-trial Motions were heard. One Motion was to exclude an Exhibit which was a picture of Umar's genital area and thigh of his burns, and the other Motion was one to stop the prosecution from describing the device Umar had as a bomb or explosive. Both Motions were denied.

After this, there was a sidebar, and a really long meeting was held in a jury room between Chambers and Umar. No idea what was discussed. I could only guess it was about a plea deal or maybe about letting Chambers finally take on the role of his attorney. When they came back, the Judge asked if another sidebar was needed, and Chambers said no, we can proceed. We were all DYING to know what was discussed.

Trial then started with a VERY LONG opening statement by the prosecution (about 1 hour 10 minutes). The opening statement, while very detailed, completely lacked ALL emotion, and I would have approached it differently, but hey, it was not my case to prosecute. The opening statement used the overhead projector and also audio of the pilot calling into the airport during the emergency. SO eerie to hear that, and again, so weird to live through hearing about the incident, once again. Once the opening statement was done, the defense chose to reserve their right to give an opening statement and we moved on to the first witness at about 12:25 PM.

The first witness was a passenger on the plane whom neither Kurt or I have ever met. He was sitting about a row back from Umar and witnessed everything, and helped stop him from doing more damage than he did to our plane. He is a grandfather and former military (Army). His testimony was pretty straightforward, just what he witnessed in regards to Umar and the fire. Court then stopped at 1:00 PM for the day.

It was VERY draining for me to be down there. Hearing the witness talk about the incident all over again, and hearing the audio of the call for emergency, exhausted me and took me back to that day all over again. And not bein able to talk to Kurt about anything and rehash it all was KILLING me. :).

Day two of trial, I could not attend first thing in the morning, but, I guess I did not miss much. Apparently, as soon as court was called to session, another long meeting happened between Chambers and Umar until around 10:50 AM. Once they came into the court, the Judge was informed that Umar was going to plead guilty to all 8 charges against him. I got there at 10:10 AM and walked into the overflow courtroom. I sat down, ready to take notes and watch, and heard the Judge say something to the effect "How do you plead to count 2......." and hear Umar say "Guilty". I think I almost fell over in shock at this point. I stepped back and sat down on a bench and after deciphering between calling Kurt and watching, I started to watch. I watched as he pled guilty on all 8 counts. I watched as he gave him statement to the court. I watched as he was taken away again by probation. I heard the Judge schedule a sentencing for January.

I was floored.

I really never thought he would plead to anything. Or if he did, I thought it would be way before this.

I did not even know how I felt about this. All I felt at first was, a sense of total and complete relief, like some huge weight had been lifted off my chest.

I had a very stressful couple days, coupled with the fact that Kurt being named as a defense witness was making me fearful of his and my safety...........

I walked in the hall and sat on a bench and looked at my phone, which had a bunch of calls from the media on it, and I dialed Kurt.

Me: "Did you hear what happened with Umar"
Kurt: "No, what?"
Me: "He pled guilty on all 8 counts?"
Kurt: "WHAT?? Did he get a sweet plea deal or something?"
Me: "No idea, I don't know what the sentence is, that's not until January"

I then realized I was almost crying as this was all really overwhemling me, and I asked Kurt to come over to deal with the media since I knew they would want to talk to us. He could not leave his hearing. I hung up and was immediately approached by the associated press wanting to ask me some questions. Talked to them, and headed outside to the rest of the press. I was bombarded as soon as I walked outside the court, asked questions about my reaction, how it felt, etc. Kurt called and said he was heading over, so once he got there, I let him talk to the media.

So, how do I feel now about this? A variety of emotions, really. Relief is the biggest one. I am glad this guy is permanently off the streets and not able to harm anyone else. I am glad I don't have to go to trial every day for the next month plus. I am glad I don't have to worry about Kurt's safety. I'm also disappointed. I really wanted Kurt to get to testify, however, neither one of us actually thought he ever would be allowed to. Curious--as to "why" he pled guilty, what was really going on behind the scenes that we may never know. I'm also saddened that the general public is never going to see as part of this trial the lies the government told, covered up and participated in. I'm saddened that people like Umar are allowed to travel to this country and put our lives at risk in order to allow the government to further their own personal agendas.

Anyway, wanted to post my thoughts on everything while they were still fresh in my memory. It's so odd this is all complete now.

Kurt Haskell Says He Will Sue Feds in Underwear Bomber Case

Kurt Haskell Says He Will Sue Feds in Underwear Bomber Case
Kurt Nimmo
Infowars.com
October 12, 2011

Appearing on the Alex Jones Show today, Michigan attorney Kurt Haskell said he plans to file a civil lawsuit against the government in the underwear bomber case now that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab has suddenly reversed course and decided to plead guilty.

“Abdulmutallab’s reversal now means that Detroit Attorney Kurt Haskell’s contention that the plot was, as in almost every other terror case made public, a product of government entrapment, and that the US intelligence establishment was involved in the aborted attack, will now remain buried, at least for the time being,” Paul Joseph Watson wrote earlier today as news of the reversal was reported.

Abdulmutallab entered a plea of not guilty eight months ago at the start of his trial on charges he attempted to use of a weapon of mass destruction, conspired to commit an act of terrorism and attempted murder.

The corporate media immediately attempted to cover the government’s effort to shut down the case and prevent Haskell from testifying by claiming Abdulmutallab had changed course in order to have the opportunity to read a six-minute speech to the courtroom in which he said that his crimes had been a payback for U.S. military killings of people in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere.

Kurt Haskell said the lawsuit will allow him to subpoena witnesses and ask questions. He told Alex Jones he is primarily interested in getting “some more truth” out of the case now that the government has moved to shut down the release of further information, in particular the identity of the well dressed Indian man who escorted Abdulmutallab to the flight in Amsterdam on Christmas day, 2009.

Alex noted that it is now government policy to murder suspects like the underwear bomber’s alleged handler and Pentagon dinner guest, Anwar Awlaki, instead of bringing them to trial.

Because of this and the government’s habitual lies and deception, lawsuits like the one Kurt Haskell will file against the government are of particular importance, Jones explained.

Christmas Day Two Years Later and the Current State of the U.S.
by Kurt Haskell

It has now been two years since the Underwear Bomber attack. Once again, Lori and I find ourselves reflecting during the holidays about what happened on Flight 253. The attack, which comprised only two minutes of our lives, continues to shape our thoughts and beliefs. Although the criminal case has ended (except for sentencing which will happen in January 2012), the laws of Michigan allow for a two year period statute of limitations in order for the injured to bring a civil lawsuit. The time period to file such a lawsuit lapses tomorrow. Lori and I have had the plan to file a civil suit at the conclusion of the criminal case, which ended in October 2011. The plan was for me to file the civil case on my own in order to keep her out of the inevitable attacks and aggravation that would come from such a suit. I have talked to several attorneys to represent me in such a case, but none of them were willing to take on the U.S. Government. I made the decision that I would represent myself in such a case. I have spent a great deal of time researching the suit and have worked on writing the complaint to initiate the case. Even though I have spent a great deal of time researching the civil case, I don't feel that I have spent enough time on the case. I have come to the conclusion that becoming involved in such a case would be an overwhelming constraint on my time. As I am a very busy attorney, this would be time that I don't have to give up. I have been willing to give up my nights and weekends in order to work on the case to further expose evidence to prove that the U.S. Government was behind the staged attack.

Over the past few weeks, I have reconsidered my decision to file a civil case, and I will instead, begrudgingly, let the statute of limitations lapse. There are several reasons I have reconsidered my decision. The purpose of my civil lawsuit would not have been to obtain compensation, but would have been to obtain further evidence that the U.S. Government perpetrated the attack. Personally, I don't need any further evidence to prove the matter to myself. I have laid out my case in numerous prior postings on this blog. I have convinced the vast majority of people that have chosen to look at all of the evidence that I've presented. I don't believe I can convince anyone else. Those that choose to deny the obvious will still not be convinced even if they watched the Schiphol airport video and audio showing what I have indicated. What then would be the purpose of my civil suit? I could possibly obtain further evidence, but that would only further convince those that already believe the U.S. Government is behind the attack. I also believe that obtaining such evidence would be nearly impossible. We now have a U.S. Government so drunk with its own power that it believes it is o.k. to kill U.S. citizens without a trial and/or to detain them forever without a hearing before a judge.

http://www.change.org/petitions/tell-obama-its-not-okay-to-kill-us-citizens-without-trial

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/dec/15/americans-face-guantanamo-detention-obama

Would the U.S. Government willingly turn over evidence to me to show conclusively that it was behind the Underwear Bombing attack when it believes it can kill or detain American citizens indefinitely? Not a chance in hell. It is much more likely that the U.S. Government would declare me a person that "substantially aided" a terrorist under the new defense authorization bill and detain me indefinitely without a trial. However, that was not really a concern that led to my decision to not file a civil case. What did play a factor was the reaction, or lack thereof, of Americans in relation to the passing of this bill. Why are Americans not outraged and protesting by the millions in Washington over this law? It has just further confirmed to me that the vast majority of Americans just don't care what the U.S. Government does in relation to "terrorism". I can't tell you how many times people have told me that they are o.k. to let the U.S. Government do whatever it wants to do against terrorists in order to make them safe. I have news for these people, if there are terrorists everywhere; there is nothing that can be done to make you entirely safe. I live very close to the largest population of Muslims in the U.S. If terrorism were as bad as the U.S. Government makes it out to be, car and suicide bombings would occur in my area on a regular basis. The fact that they never occur is very telling. It is my belief that the war on terror is nothing but a fraudulent U.S. Government creation designed, in part, to take away all of the rights of Americans and to further enrich and consolidate the power of those in control.

Our Constitutional rights are currently under attack and are being rapidly taken away. In case you haven't been paying attention, the definition of "terrorist" is slowly changing to one that means "a person that doesn't agree with the U.S. Government". When those that have given away all of their rights to combat terrorism suddenly discover that they are in fact terrorists, it will be too late. If I filed and won my lawsuit and proved that the U.S. Government staged the Underwear Bomber attack, would these people care? No they wouldn't. Would it stop the U.S. Government's assault on our Constitutional Rights? No it wouldn't. Would anyone do anything if I was labeled a terrorist and detained indefinitely without a trial? Not a chance. These people comprise the vast majority of the American population. The corruption is so entrenched that 93 out of 100 senators voted for the recent law that allows for the indefinite detention of Americans without a trial. Can anyone think of any recent law that had that had such a vast majority of approval by both Democrats and Republicans? I can't think of any. The question I have is why would this bill obtain such vast approval? The answer to me is an obvious one. The U.S. as we know it is on the edge of complete collapse due to an out of control national debt. This collapse will lead to an economic collapse that will make the Great Depression look like a fun time. The National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility, an 18 member bi-partisan commission created by President Obama, recently indicated that the financial collapse will occur within two years.

http://www.mysanantonio.com/business/article/Trinity-speakers-say-U-S-must-share-sacrifice-2400021.php#ixzz1gWTEZC60

Obviously, the vast majority of senators that voted in support of the authorization to detain Americans indefinitely are worried that Americans may turn their anger from a financial collapse onto their political representatives. The approval of such a law was made in order to protect the politicians themselves from unruly mobs of Americans that are angry from the financial collapse. These Americans will be the new "terrorists". The new "terrorists" will find indefinite “housing” in FEMA camps that are being built throughout the U.S.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0P-hvPJPTi4

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJBxdRIQx7Y

What other explanation could there be for the large bipartisan support for such an unconstitutional law? There is none. It is also shocking that a president that is a supposed Constitutional law expert would approve of a law that is such a direct violation of the Constitution. This is the sad state of affairs that is prevalent in the U.S. today.

What also had an effect on my decision to not file a civil case was the indication by the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility that the U.S. economy will collapse within the next two years. Lori and I have had a multi-year plan (Going back to 2006) to retire and move out of the U.S. Our current plan is to move abroad at the end of 2013. Apparently, according to the commission, this would coincide with the U.S. economic collapse. If I were to file a civil suit, the time and money I would need to put into such a case would delay our move out of the U.S. For obvious reasons, we don’t want to be in the U.S. when it collapses and definitely, don’t want to be considered “wealthy” when millions of out of control Americans look for scapegoats for their economic problems.

Make no mistake, my decision to not file a civil case was not due to intimidation. If it was, I never would have spoken out against the U.S. Government in the first place. My decision rests on two conditions that have become increasingly clear over the past two months:

1. The vast majority of Americans don’t care or will never believe that the U.S. Government is staging false terror attacks against its own citizens.

2. The U.S. is facing imminent economic collapse for which I need to devote as much time and save as much money as possible in order to financially prepare to leave the U.S. permanently.

On a side note, I saw that a fellow Underwear Bomber passenger has filed a civil suit.

http://edition.cnn.com/2011/12/23/justice/new-york-underwear-bomber-lawsuit/?hpt=us_c2

Note that Mr. Maranga has sued the airline and not the U.S. Government agents that were behind the attack. I have spoken to Mr. Maranga on several occasions and he is not convinced that the U.S. Government was involved. Don’t expect anything earth shattering to come out of this lawsuit. I originally read this story on the Detroit Free Press website, which I have been unable to locate. The comments section of that article contains many posts attacking Mr. Maranga for wanting compensation for his emotional injuries. Such is the sad state of the mind of the standard American. By the way, in order to sue an airline for an injury received on an international flight, you must have a physical injury and not just emotional trauma. What is interesting to me is that the U.S. was responsible for this provision in the Montreal Convention (the current law on international airline travel). Most nations wanted passengers to be able to sue for strictly emotional injuries, but the U.S. wouldn’t allow it. As I didn’t suffer a physical injury, I am prohibited from suing the airline.

I know that many people will be disappointed in my decision to not sue the members of the U.S. Government that were behind the fraudulent, false, threat known as the Underwear Bomber attack. I understand your feelings. I don’t want to let it go myself, but I have to look at the reality of the situation. The vast majority of Americans are not willing to believe that their government is as corrupt and evil as it is. No significant change will occur until this changes, and likely, even then, won’t occur without an overthrow of the government. Such a time will not occur without prior significant financial hardship happening to the vast majority of Americans. That time is coming, but it is not yet here. A cost benefit analysis regarding the filing of a civil suit indicates that there is no real upside to filing such a case, but there is significant downside. Nonetheless, I will continue to speak out against the corrupt and fraudulent U.S. Government and will continue to support those Americans that are paying attention and want their country to return to the free country that it once was.

Happy Holidays to all.

Kurt Haskell statement...

Every victim of a crime in Michigan is entitled to make a statement in open court regarding the impact of the crime on their life. The statement is limited to the victim’s physical, emotional and financial well being as it relates to the crime. Keep that in mind as you read my statement. Below is a copy of the victim impact statement I gave today at the Underwear Bomber sentencing hearing. When reading my statement, keep in mind that I am a practicing attorney in the State of Michigan. In addition, I regularly practice in the Court the hearings are taking place at and therefore, I am somewhat limited as to what I can say. We were limited to 5 minutes each.

I wish to thank the Court for allowing me these 5 minutes to make my statement. My references to the government in this statement refer to the Federal Government excluding this Court and the prosecution. On Christmas Day 2009, my wife and I were returning from an African safari and had a connecting flight through Amsterdam. As we waited for our flight, we sat on the floor next to the boarding gate. What I witnessed while sitting there and subsequent events have changed my life forever. While I sat there, I witnessed Umar dressed in jeans and a white t-shirt, being escorted around security by a man in a tan suit who spoke perfect American English and who aided Umar in boarding without a passport. The airline gate worker initially refused Umar boarding until the man in the tan suit intervened. The event meant nothing to me at the time. Little did I know that Umar would try to kill me a few hours later as our flight approached Detroit. The final 10 minutes of our flight after the attack were the worst minutes of my life. During those 10 minutes I sat paralyzed in fear. Unfortunately, what happened next has had an even greater impact on my life and has saddened me further.

When we landed, I was shocked that our plane taxied up to the gate. I was further shocked that we were forced to sit on the plane for 20 minutes with powder from the so called bomb all over the cabin. The officers that boarded the plane did nothing to ensure our safety and did not check for accomplices or other explosive devices. Several passengers trampled through parts of the bomb as they exited the plane. We were then taken into the terminal with our unchecked carry on bags. Again, there was no concern for our safety even though Umar told the officers that there was another bomb on board as he exited the plane. I wondered why nobody was concerned about our safety, accomplices or other bombs and the lack of concern worried me greatly. I immediately told the FBI my story in order to help catch the accomplice I had seen in Amsterdam. It soon became obvious that the FBI wasn’t interested in what I had to say, which upset me further. For one month the government refused to admit the existence of the man in the tan suit before changing course and admitting his existence in an ABC News article on January 22, 2010. That was the last time the government talked about this man. The video that would prove the truth of my account has never been released. I continue to be emotionally upset that the video has not been released. The Dutch police, meanwhile, in this article (show article), also confirmed that Umar did not show his passport in Amsterdam which also meant that he didn’t go through security as both are in the same line in Amsterdam. It upsets me that the government refuses to admit this fact.

I became further saddened from this case, when Patrick Kennedy of the State Department during Congressional hearings, admitted that Umar was a known terrorist, was being followed, and the U.S. allowed him into the U.S. so that it could catch Umar’s accomplices. I was once again shocked and saddened when Michael Leiter of the National Counter terrorism Center admitted during these same hearings that intentionally letting terrorists into the U.S. was a frequent practice of the U.S. Government. I cannot fully explain my sadness, disappointment and fear when I realized that my government allowed an attack on me intentionally.

During this time, I questioned if my country intentionally put a known terrorist onto my flight with a live bomb. I had many sleepless nights over this issue. My answer came shortly thereafter. In late 2010, the FBI admitted to giving out intentionally defective bombs to the Portland Christmas Tree Bomber,the Wrigley Field Bomber and several others. Further, Mr. Chambers was quoted in the Free Press on January 11, 2011 when he indicated that the government’s own explosives experts had indicated that Umar’s bomb was impossibly defective. I wondered how that could be. Certainly, I thought, Al Qaeda wouldn’t go through all of the trouble to plan such an attack only to provide the terrorist with an impossibly defective bomb.

I attended nearly all of the pretrial hearings. At the hearing on January 28, 2011, I was greatly disappointed by the prosecution’s request to block evidence from Mr. Chambers “as it could then be able to be obtained by third parties, who could use it in a civil suit against the government”. It really bothered me that the government apparently was admitting to wrongdoing of some kind as it admitted that it was concerned it would be sued. It further upset me to know that the government was putting its own interests ahead of those of the passengers.

When I attended the jury selection hearings, I questioned why versions of the same two questions kept coming up, those being:

1. Do you think you’ll be able to tell whether something is actually a bomb? and
 2. Do you realize that sometimes the media doesn’t always tell the truth?

I continued to be greatly saddened at this point as I felt the truth continued to be hidden.

When Umar listed me as his only witness, I was happy to testify, not on his behalf, but on behalf of the truth. I never expected to testify, as my eyewitness account would have been too damaging to the myth that the government and media are putting forward. A mere 5 days after I was announced as a witness, there was an inexplicable guilty plea which exasperated me as I no longer would be testifying.

In closing I will just say that regardless of how the media and government try to shape the public perception of this case, I am convinced that Umar was given an intentionally defective bomb by a U.S. Government agent and placed on our flight without showing a passport or going through security, to stage a false terrorist attack to be used to implement various government policies.

The effect this matter has had on my life has been astounding and due to this case, I will never trust the government in any matter, ever.

In regards to sentencing, nothing I’ve said excuses the fact that Umar tried to kill me. He has waived his valid claim to the entrapment defense. Umar, you are not a great Muslim martyr, you are merely a “Patsy”. I ask the court to impose the mandatory sentence.

{excerpts from the blog and note that the times are "inverted" on the blog}

1:23 p.m.
The prosecution team, headed by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan Tukel, just entered the courtroom. His team includes Catherine Corken and Michael Martin.

Abdulmutallab’s lawyer, Anthony Chambers, is leaning back in a chair at the defense table, watching spectators enter the courtroom while he waits for deputy U.S. marshals to being his client in to the courtroom.

Kurt Haskell, a Taylor lawyer who was on the flight, says on his Web blog that he plans to speak at the sentencing. Haskell and his wife, Lori, were aboard the flight. They believe the government conspired with Abdulmutallab to carry a defective bomb onto the plane to the U.S. government a reason to install full body scanners at airports.

"I wish I could take an hour to give a fully detailed statement about everything that happened, but Judge Edmunds has limited each passenger to 5 minutes," Haskell wrote on his blog. "This will be the first time that I actually get to speak in Court regarding this matter. It will be interesting. I am sure the media will once again try and paint me as a nut job 'conspiracy theorist.' Frankly, I don't care and I will speak the truth."
1:06 p.m.

2:27 p.m.
Kurt Haskell just stepped to the podium.

Choking up, he praised Mason for putting out the fire on the plane and saving everyone’s lives.

He said he and his wife were on the flight returning from an African safari. While sitting at the airport, he said he saw Abdulmutallab being escorted through security by a man in a tan suit who spoke perfect English.

The airline gate worker initially refused to let Abdulmutallab to board until the man in the tan suit intervened.

“Little did I know that Umar would try to kill me,” he said.

He said the incident has changed his life.

He said passengers were kept on the plane after it landed in Detroit without any concern about the explosives on the plane. He said passengers were taken into the terminal without anyone checking their bags or for possible accomplices.

It soon became obvious that the FBI wasn’t concerned about anything he had to say, including the man in the tan suit.

He said Abdulmutallab was allowed to board the plane without a passport and going through security. He said he’s disappointed that the U.S. government allowed Abdulmutallab to get onto the plane.

“Regardless of how media and government try to shape this case, I am convinced that Umar was given an intentionally defective bomb by a U.S. agent… to stage a false terrorist attack to be used to implement various government policies. It really saddens me that the government won’t admit its role in the event. Because of this case, I will never trust anything the government says, ever.”

Then, Haskell turned to Abdulmutallab.

“Umar, you are not a Muslim martyr. You are merely a government patsy.”

He urged Edmunds to give Abdulmutallab the maximum sentence.

Haskell’s wife, also urged Edmunds to give Abdulmutallab the maximum sentence.

“I have never been that scared in my life,” she said, adding that she still has nightmares.

Detroit underwear bomber gets life sentence
DETROIT – A federal judge Thursday afternoon imposed multiple life sentences on failed underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who tried to blow up a Detroit-bound jetliner on Christmas Day 2009.

"The defendant has never expressed doubt or regret or remorse about his mission," U.S District Judge Nancy Edmunds told the 25-year-old Nigerian student-turned-Al Qaida-operative during a 90-minute hearing in Detroit. "To the contrary, he sees that mission as divinely inspired and a continuing mission.

"I believe the defendant poses a significant ongoing threat to the safety of American citizens everywhere," Edmunds said, adding that she couldn't control his motivations, but could control his opportunity to carry them out.

STORY: Underwear bomber challenges life sentence http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/story/2012-02-13/underwear-bomber-challenges-life-sentence/53085734/1

Edmunds imposed the sentence after several passengers on Northwest Flight 253 talked about how the failed bombing attempt had forever changed their lives, causing them to fear flying, seek mental health counseling and have continuing nightmares.

LeMare Mason, a Northwest flight attendant who put out the flames when Abdulmutallab's bomb fizzled in his underwear, told Edmunds that his life has changed.

"I had a dream job traveling the world," he said. "This man has stolen and robbed me of the pleasure of going to work."

He said he wakes up in night sweats because of the incident and has been in therapy since the incident.

"His intentions were to end our lives," he said.

Shama Chopra, a passenger from Montreal and mother of two, said she has had to overcome the fear of flying since the incident.

"As a mother, I feel for you," she said. "But you had no right to take my life.

"Today is your turn and justice will be served," she said as Abdulmutallab fidgeted with paper at the defense table.

Before leaving the podium, she gave Abdulmutallab's standby defense lawyer, Anthony Chambers, a rosary to give to his client.

Kurt Haskell, a Michigan lawyer, said his life also has changed, but said he still believes a federal agent gave Abdulmutallab a defective bomb to carry onto the plane to create an incident that would cause the government to install full body scanners at airports nationwide.

"Regardless of how media and government try to shape this case, I am convinced that Umar was given an intentionally defective bomb by a U.S. agent," Haskell told Edmunds. "It really saddens me that the government won't admit its role in the event. Because of this case, I will never trust anything the government says, ever."

Haskell then turned to Abdulmutallab and said: "Umar, you are not a Muslim martyr. You are merely a government patsy."

He and his wife, Lori, who also spoke, urged Edmunds to impose the maximum sentence.

Abdulmutallab, for his part, told Edmunds: "The Mujahedeen are proud to kill in the name of God and this is exactly what God told us to do in the Koran. … The situation of one who believes in Allah is always good … it's always a win-win situation."

The defendant laid into the U.S. government for oppressing Muslims worldwide and for federal prosecutors in Detroit for misquoting and misrepresenting the facts of the case "to achieve their evil goals."

Then, responding to Haskell, Abdulmutallab said: "I am not a government paddy."

During his 3-minute speech, Abdulmutallab said Osama bin Laden, whom U.S. forces killed in an attack on his home in Pakistan last year, and Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S.-born al-Qaida leader who sent him on his mission, are still alive. Al-Awlaki was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Yemen last year.

Edmunds imposed four life prison sentences on Abdulmutallab.

He pleaded guilty on the second day of trial testimony in October to eight counts, including conspiring to commit an act of terrorism, use of a weapon of mass destruction and carrying a firearm or destructive device during a crime of violence.

Chambers said Abdulmutallab, who has 10 days to appeal the sentence, probably will serve the sentence at the federal super-max prison in Florence, Colo., where other convicted terrorists are doing time.

Chambers, released a statement from Abdulmutallab's family.

"We are grateful to God that the unfortunate incident that day did not result in any injury or death," the family said. "We pray for a more peaceful world and hope that all well-meaning persons, institutions and nations will work to establish to world peace."

The family also asked the Department of Justice to intervene on their son's behalf.

"We strongly appeal to the American justice department to review the life sentence," it said.

Chambers said Abdulmutallab plans to appeal the sentences on his own.

He said Abdulmutallab's mother, father and seven siblings were in Detroit on Thursday, but didn't attend the sentencing, because of security reasons.

"They are extremely supportive of him, they are very distraught," Chambers said after the sentencing. He said they are fearful they may never be allowed to visit him.

Chambers said his client remains strong and upbeat: "There were no surprises for him."

U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade, who attended the sentencing, told the Detroit Free Press afterward that the case shows that terrorists can be tried in civil courts, contrary to critics who said early on that Abdulmutallab should have been tried by a military tribunal.

"The civil court system worked extremely well in this case," she said. "There was no torture required to get his confession. The words came out of his own mouth. You heard it in open court."

During the sentencing hearing, Chambers and prosecutors acknowledged that they worked on a plea deal early on in the case, but it fell apart for reasons they didn't explain.

Chambers said that, had Abdulmutallab allowed him to serve as a full-fledged lawyer rather than standby counsel, he could have gotten him more favorable treatment at sentencing.

He also said of his client: "He is a very misguided young man. … I think he's a very impressionable young man who got messed up with the wrong people."

Anwar al-Awlaki is mentioned...

Underwear bomber challenges life sentence
DETROIT -- Confessed underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab is challenging his mandatory life in prison sentence, arguing in court documents filed Monday that a life sentence is "cruel and unusual punishment" and unconstitutional.

Abdulmutallab, who is scheduled to be sentenced Thursday, is facing a mandatory life in prison sentence after pleading guilty in October to trying to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner carrying nearly 300 people with a bomb hidden in his underwear. He pleaded guilty to numerous criminal charges, including attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction, and conspiracy to commit terrorism.

The plot was foiled when his bomb malfunctioned.

"Given the circumstances and what did NOT occur in the instant matter it is fair to say that the mandatory minimum sentence of life is excessive and grossly disproportionate to the conduct," Abdulmutallab wrote in court documents Monday. "Aside from the defendant no passengers suffered any serious injuries and there were no casualties."

The government strongly disagrees, and has asked U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds to give him the maximum punishment.

"Defendant is an unrepentant, would-be mass murderer, who views his crimes as divinely inspired and blessed, and who views himself as under a continuing obligation to carry out such crimes," prosecutors wrote Friday in a sentencing memo. "He attempted to murder 289 individuals, no sentence other than life. … Could possibly reflect the seriousness of defendant's conduct."

In pushing for a stiff sentence, the government also disclosed Friday details about Abdulmutallab's relationship with a well-known al-Qaida figure.

According to court documents, Abdulmutallab spent months pursuing American-born Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen, where the two men eventually met and hatched out a plan to blow up an American airliner over U.S. soil on Christmas Day 2009. In the weeks leading up to the bombing attempt, the two men texted each other, spoke briefly on the phone and ended up spending three days together at al-Awlaki's house planning the attack, the government wrote in court documents.

Al-Awlaki eventually led Abdulmutallab to a bomb maker, who trained the Nigerian defendant on how to ignite the bomb, according to court documents. It was al-Awlaki, the government says, who ultimately approved the martyrdom mission.

"Awlaki's last instructions to him were to wait until the airplane was over the United States and then to take the plane down," prosecutors wrote in court documents.

According to court documents, Abdulmutallab disclosed the details of his relationship with al-Awlaki in statements he gave to the FBI in 2010.

Al-Awlaki, who had become a leading al-Qaida figure in Yemen, was killed in a U.S. drone attack last year.

In 2009 while in Yemen, Abdulmutallab visited mosques and asked locals whether they knew how he could meet al-Awlaki, records show. Eventually, he met someone with a connection: the individual took Abdulmutallab's cell phone number and gave it to al-Awlaki, who texted him shortly after.

Eventually, the two men met. Abdulmutallab successfully sold himself as an ideal candidate for a martyrdom mission, and a bomb maker was summoned, records show.

For two weeks, Abdulmutallab trained in a camp, where he received weapons instructions and indoctrination in jihad, records show. The bomb maker eventually delivered the bomb to Abdulmutallab and showed him how to use it, records show.

The plot failed.

The bomb fizzled in Abdulmutallab's underwear. Abdulmutallab, whose genitalia and legs were burned in the mission, admitted to everything.

In the middle of trial, just after a jury had been seated, he said "participation in jihad against the United States is considered among the most virtuous of deeds in Islam and is highly encouraged in the Koran." He went on to call his bomb, "a blessed weapon."

Passengers On Underwear Bomber's Flight To Speak In Court
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/16/underwear-bomber_n_1281436.html

By ED WHITE -- The Associated Press

A Nigerian man returned to court Thursday to be sentenced to life in prison for trying to destroy a Detroit-bound flight on Christmas 2009 while on a suicide mission for al-Qaida.

As the hearing started, U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds refused to set aside a federal law that calls for a mandatory life sentence for Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. His attorney said it would be cruel and unconstitutional punishment when there was no death or serious injury to passengers.

But Edmunds said such a declaration would run counter to decisions by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Abdulmutallab, wearing a white skull cap and an oversized prison T-shirt, was back in court four months after pleading guilty on the second day of his terrorism trial. The hearing was an open platform for passengers and crew who want to speak, but only five of nearly 300 addressed the court.

Abdulmutallab, 25, tried to detonate explosive chemicals that were hidden in his underwear minutes before the plane landed at Detroit Metropolitan Airport. The government says he first performed a ritual in the lavatory - brushing his teeth and perfuming himself - and returned to his seat. The device didn't work as planned, but still produced flame, smoke and panic in the cabin.

"I've become bolder. I've become stronger," said passenger Shama Chopra, 56, of Montreal, who plans to speak in court. She ran unsuccessfully for the Canadian Parliament in 2011, a race she couldn't have imagined joining years ago.

"I don't have to feel weak," Chopra said in an interview Wednesday. "I don't have to be scared of anything. God has given me a second chance to live."

On the second day of the trial in October, Abdulmutallab suddenly pleaded guilty to all charges. In a defiant speech, he said he was carrying a "blessed weapon" to avenge Muslims who have been killed or poorly treated around the world. He admitted he was inspired by Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical American-born cleric and leading al-Qaida figure in Yemen who was killed by a U.S. drone strike last fall.

"The Quran obliges every able Muslim to participate in jihad and fight in the way of Allah those who fight you, and kill them wherever you find them ... an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth," Abdulmutallab said.

Anthony Chambers, an attorney appointed to assist Abdulmutallab, believes the Nigerian will speak again Thursday but doesn't know what he'll say. He said nine members of Abdulmutallab's family, including his father, traveled to Detroit but don't plan to be in court.

In a court filing ahead of the hearing, Chambers urged Edmunds to declare that a mandatory life sentence is unconstitutional.

"Not one passenger lost his or her life. Not one passenger suffered life-threatening injuries," Chambers said.

The government said that is not the threshold.

"Unsuccessful terrorist attacks still engender fear in the broader public, which, after all, is one of their main objectives," prosecutors said in a court filing Wednesday.

The case also had lasting implications for security screening at American airports.

Abdulmutallab's ability to defeat security in Amsterdam contributed to the deployment of full-body scanners at U.S. airports. The Transportation Security Administration was using the scanners in some American cities at the time, but the attack accelerated their placement.

There are now hundreds of the devices nationwide.

And here Ed White disparages the evidence, Kurt Haskell, and all the many valid aspects which point to government involvement... If Ed White actually did his job, then he would be very aware of the myriad of outpoints concerning the Underwear Bomber case. However, Ed White refused to thoroughly investigate ALL the facts and evidence and follow-through. Ed White is not an objective reporter, but rather someone who tows the government's propaganda.

See this in the last paragraph for a copy of a blurb about a revision. http://pastebin.com/S3wcGUjH and here is another story about the official story being revised over a year ago Authorities Quietly Reverse Underwear Bomber Official Story http://ancavge.wordpress.com/2010/01/29/authorities-quietly-reverse-underwear-bomber-official-story/ ]

Saturday, March 03, 2012 - Kurt for Congress!

Kurt for Congress!
Just wanted to post something for all of you following along that Kurt decided yesterday that he is going to run for Congress! Our district is the 7th District of Michigan. Recently, the state lines changed, and John Dingell is no longer in our District. Kurt would be running against a Republican, Tim Walberg, and Kurt will be running as a Democrat.

Kurt picked up his petitions yesterday and we started collecting signatures today and need 1000. Anyone who lives in Monroe, Lenawee, Eaton, Jackson, Hillsdale, Branch and Washtenaw (only parts of this County though) who want to sign our petitions, please let me know so we can get your signature(s).

Wish us luck. We know this is going to be an exhausting, demanding year, but it is worth it if Kurt can start to bring some integrity and honesty to politics.

We will be starting a website soon, and the facebook page is up and running, click here ( https://www.facebook.com/KurtHaskellForCongress ) to like that page.

In the meantime, my posting here will be very limited, if at all.

April 30 2012 - Mon - Alex Jones interview

Excellent interview!!
(Note the statement about the Democratic Party intentionally bringing in an ex-CIA Republican in order to attenuate Kurt Haskell's Congressional Campaign.)
