Yemen Bomb Suspect Already Released

From Vaughn:

The cock-up has cratered.  The young woman has been released and now they’re claiming that it was a case of someone stealing her identity.  Uh-huh. Yemen bomb suspect released, lawyer says

Nov. 1, 2010 – LA TimesThe Yemen government did not issue a statement on why Hanan Samawi, who was detained Saturday after her cellphone number was traced to shipping orders, was freed. The student’s release could be a political embarrassment for President Ali Abdullah Saleh, who had announced her arrest in a high-profile news conference apparently designed to show that his government was moving aggressively against Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.

Ink Cartridges Now On Sale At Firesale Prices!!!

Rogue Government has a article on the bogus ‘bomb’ scare: Ink Cartridge Error Plot

Here’s a series of pictures of what it actually looked like.

And this quote takes the cake:

US Congresswoman Jane Harman, a Democrat from California, told the New York Times newspaper that the powder is pentaerythritol tetranitrate (PETN),

Didn’t know that anybody in Congress was an expert on PETN.

More Bomb Bullshit

Received this from Vaughn this morning:

One last bit on this latest bogus “terror” threat regarding ‘printer cartridges of mass destruction’ (PCMD). This bomb scare is sheer bovine excrement and is debunked in this short BBC interview.  Then, there is the possibility that UPS does not even service Yemen (. pdf version). There is also the statement from Mohammed al-Shaibah, Air Cargo Director for Yemenia Airways who stated, “No UPS cargo plane left Yemeni lands over the past 48 hours. These accusations are false and baseless.”  Then added, “No UPS or DHL cargo packages heading to Chicago through Yemen took place in the last 48 hours as well.”

Another Bogus Threat Emerges

Another alleged ‘terror threat’, just in time for the (s)elections is being widely promoted by every major network.  The alleged targets are as suspicious as the timing.

I guess al Qaeda is lacking in their skills these days.  From flying jetliners at 500 mph into towering skyscrapers to wiring together white powder and cell phone components and mailing them thousands of miles via UPS — this must be almost embarrassing for them.

Body Count Continues To Rise

There’s more violence and terrorism in Mexico these days then in any other part of the world.  The entire police force quit after being machined gunned and blasted by drug cartel gunmen.  Another incident left 15 more people dead at a car wash.

It’s not so strange that the United States hasn’t taken the war on terror to Mexico.  Mexico already sells us their oil so there is no need to fight terror there, even if this is far more real that all that fabricated terror ‘threats’ elsewhere.  The 20,000+ dead in Mexico gun battles just aren’t important enough.

Change We Can Believe In

I have not been able to bring myself to write much lately, because the hysteria and hoopla (and hubris) is so out-of-control now, that it is hardly worth reporting.

The stuff that is happening and worth reporting isn’t being shared much by our media.  We’re more concerned with Charlie Sheen being naked then a tsunami in Indonesia.

Desdemona has lots of stories too.  But am I wrong about saying that we’re just really not that interested?  Nobody cares that starvation is occurring in Pakistan or cholera outbreaks there are now claiming their 100th victim.

Gulf Coverup

Steve Lendman has a report on the Gulf spill:

In the six month anniversary of the disaster, marine biologist Riki Ott reported “people (are) now dropping dead,” adding:

“I am dealing with about 3 – 4 autopsies right now….I know of people who’s esophagus’ are de-solving, disintegrating….I know of people with 4.75% of their lung capacity, with enlarged hearts….All of these people have oil (and dispersants) in their bodies.”

I picked up a copy of Bill McKibben’s book, Eaarth and have now read through a little more then half of this book.

First off, it’s really a very good book on covering the difficulties now facing humanity.  I’ve never read McKibben’s books  before (really) but like his writing style, it’s easy to read and worth reading twice.  The breadth of what he covers is as complete as anything I’ve seen.
