Christmas Day One Year Later-The Underwear Bomber-Case Closed

by Kurt Haskell from Thailand

I've been attempting to write this article for the last 36 hours but the internet has been out at our hotel...............

It has been one year since the Underwear Bomber incident that changed my life. I'm not going to rehash the entire story of my account, as that is available here in my past postings on this blog. I just have a few things to say that I've been thinking about as I hike through the jungles of Thailand.

On January 28, 2010 I first posted that the Sharp Dressed Man was a U.S. Government Agent.

I am now nearly 100% certain that I am correct.

Three days after I wrote the above blog post, I wrote the following post, which discusses what I considered to be the most important remaining questions regarding flight 253.

The third question that I asked, "Was the bomb intended to explode?", to me, is the entire key to the story. I believe it has been answered.

On January 31, 2010 I never would have dreamt of a scenario in which the U.S. Government would ADMIT that it was handing out fake bombs to terrorists, but that has now happened on two occasions that I'm aware of in 2010:

Also, if you take a look at this interview with the college kid that sat next to Umar (I refuse to call him a terrorist as he is a mere patsy), you can see that the U.S. Government seized all of his clothes:

The above three articles when taken together definitively solve the entire underwear bomber episode. The first two represent the modus operandi of the FBI/CIA, which is, if nobody get hurt, fake bombs are o.k. I will discuss that aspect in a minute. When you look deeply at the third article you have to ask the question, why were all of his clothes seized? The bombing substance, allegedly PETN was all over the airplane cabin near Umar's seat. It is not like there was a lack of material to be tested. The truth is that the government seized it all so that nobody could test the real chemical composition to determine that the bomb was indeed a dud. If I would have known that I would be writing this article one year ago, I would have picked up some of the substance as I walked within inches of it.

If you accept that the Underwear Bomber had an intentionally defective bomb /fake bomb, then you need not answer any of the other questions that I posed on January 31, 2010. The answers are either unnecessay or have only one possible explanation.

Before I get into that discussion, let me state that even if you accept that the bomb was fake, it does not mean that the plot didn't have victims. The last 10 minutes on flight 253 were the most terrifying moments of my life. For months I did not sleep, and my doctor diagnosed me with post traumatic stress disorder. It is also likely that without the fast acting efforts of a flight attendant equipped with a fire extinguisher, our plane would have blown up from the fire that resulted from the fake bomb.

Back to why the fake bomb is so important to this story...........

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. Obviously, the entire fraudulent plot fails if Umar 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 changed its story so many times in relation to this guy. Obviously, he is also a U.S. Government agent. Now we must dig a little deeper and ask how did someone get enough of Umar's trust to set up the plot and give him a fake bomb. One would have to have a deep involvement in a "terrorist group" in Yemen in order to do so. One person likely wouldn't be able to accomplish winning his trust. Two or three would also be unlikely. We must accept that the U.S. Government has planted numerous "Al Qaeda" plants, perhaps even entire terrorist cells, in order to win the trust of someone like Umar. When we accept this fact, one must ask if, without such a large encouraging environment, Umar would have been a "fake terrorist" at all. It has been reported that Umar is not very intelligent. I don't doubt that at all. Is it reasonable to believe that he could have set up this plot, created a bomb (I sure don't know how to) and attacked an airline without the help of the U.S. Government? No it is not. Without the U.S. Government, Umar would remain an unknown Nigerian.

If we accept what I have stated so far, we must dig a little deeper. The U.S. Government has now been shown to be staging "terrorist" plots with individuals who likely would be unknown without its help. We now must go a little further and question whether there have been any legitimate terrorist attacks ever. I am not well informed enough to answer that question, but in pondering that question you must consider, as uncomfortable as it may be, that the U.S. Government also staged the attacks on September 11, 2001. I will not discuss that further in this post other than to say that the only difference between the attacks on September 11, 2001 and flight 253 is a fast acting flight attendant equipped with a fire extinguisher. Without that flight attendant, flight 253 burns to the ground due to a "deranged terrorist from Nigeria."

Next, I would like to address why the U.S. Government would continue to stage such plots. There may be numerous answers to this question. The answer regarding flight 253, was that the Patriot Act needed to be renewed and body scanners needed to be placed in the airports. What a perfect way to bring body scanners to the airports: stage a fake terrorist bombing when the bomb is in the bomber's clothes. You see, if the plot was merely to catch Umar in the act, then he could have been arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit murder, which could have resulted in a life sentence. There was no need to allow Umar to light the fake bomb on the plane, unless a propaganda campaign was being staged. Not surprisingly, Umar lit the bomb in full view of everyone and not in the bathroom where it would have fizzled, as duds do, and not caused any kind of stir. Allowing Umar to light the dud bomb on the plane served the ultimate plot of the U.S. Government, which was to renew the Patriot Act and get body scanners in the airports. It is too obvious. Why the U.S. Government is attempting to raid the treasury of funds and take away our Constitutional rights is unclear. There are many possibilities and I will not discuss them here. What can't be argued is that the U.S. Government is in fact engaging in such a propaganda campaign. I suspect in 2011 we will see more fake terrorist attacks targeted to take away specific rights of U.S. citizens. Fake plots that come to mind are: bombings of malls, trains, boats, universities and sporting events (Likely by U.S. citizens this time). Of course, each plot will be followed by a security solution that will involve the loss of rights and drain the treasury further. Stay tuned.

It is unfortunate that the USA has become what it has, which is the true global terrorist. This is no longer your grandmother's red, white and blue U.S.A. My support for my government due to this incident has become nil. When I tried to help in the investigation, the government lied. It put out false propaganda stating: "We've seen nothing in 200 hours of video", "No man in orange", "No sharp dressed man" and even stooped so low as to have another passenger call me to try and tell me I didn't see what I did. Unbelievable. Further, I watched as pictures of Umar's underwear and passport were shown on t.v. I have figured out that with the U.S. Government, what's up is down and what's down is up. The release of those photos told me that they were fake. Meanwhile, the Schipol Airport video that would reveal the truth remains hidden. Call me what you will, but my beliefs are entirely justified.

What also is entirely disturbing to me, is that the media does not do any investigative journalism. My claims have not been followed up on. I have discoverd that the media is nothing but a mouthpiece for the U.S Government. I saw a "documentary" put out by the BBC that showed Umar walking through security and showing his passport. Come on. When it is said that a picture speaks a thousand words it certainly does. That reinforcement made many more people believe in the official story.

Lastly, I must comment on the recent conspiracy charges that have been brought against Umar:

I have to ask why these charges have been brought so late in the game. To me the answer is clear. Only when negotiations on a plea deal broke down were these charges brought. Why? They are being used as a hammer to force a plea deal. The U.S. Government DOES NOT WANT to go to trial with Umar(who now knows that he was duped), representing himself. I blogged previously on why I thought that this scenario would be one of the greatest events in the history of the U.S. More importantly, the new charge is one of conspiracy. A conspiracy requires an agreement between at least two individuals. It is obvious that the failure to bring this charge until one year later shows that the U.S. Government did not want to admit that a conspiracy occurred. The indictment reads that Umar conspired with "persons known and unknown". We have to ask that if conspirators are known, why are their names not in the indictment? Why are they not being charged? Why are they not on the FBI's 10 most wanted list? The answer could not be more clear: The conspirators are agents of the U.S .Government. Hence, the reluctancy to bring this charge. I remain sceptical that this matter will ever proceed to trial. The trial would be too damaging to the propaganda campaign of the U.S. Government. If somehow it does happen, I will be there everyday, front row center and I will make a victim impact statement.

As I indicated on January 28, 2010, the Sharp Dressed Man was indeed a U.S. Government agent. To those of you that supported me over the last year, I thank you. God knows that there were times when I needed it. To those of you who doubted me, it's time for your Christmas dinner and crow is being served.

Maybe fake terror has been use to turn this country into a communist country.

Michael Murray said...

Thank you for sharing your story and your thoughts Kurt. You speak the truth, which is a revolutionary act in these times of universal deceit. The official version so many of the "terrorist" attacks we have seen over the past decades are such a farce it is amazing that anyone can actually believe them. We need to expose these traitors and restore our once great republic. With more people like yourself, with the courage to do the necessary research, we will do just that. Good luck and god bless.

Did the failed underwear bomb burn his nuts off? That would be so cool if it did!

Anonymous said...

hey man, thanks for the eyewitness report and following up on it. if you want to know why they wanted body scanners in airports you just have to look and see michael chertoff , former head of homeland security, profiting from sales of the rapiscan machines.

i'm amazed you can still get in an airplane after what happened. maybe one day we will get some truth and justice. or maybe operation northwoods will come to be. who knows ;\

Anonymous said...

Awesome article. You should represent this guy in court. You should also look into the body scanning machines and the chertoff group.

P.S. I cant believe you were on that plane!!!

george said...

Want 100% proof that the underwear bomber was a fake plot, never intended to do anything but terrorize the public?

The proof is, he sat in his seat, in full view of everyone, and then tried to light up the "bomb" - knowing full well that he would be overwhelmed by the passengers and attendants immediately.

Anyone that had a jihad mission to suicide bomb an airliner would wait until the plane gained cruising altitude and proceed to the sanctuary of a lavatory, wherein he would be able to accomplish his mission without interruption.

But no, just like the previous fake terror bomber, Richard Reid, who attempted to ignite his shoes in front of everyone, this was completely for shock value and consumption by the sheep, allowing those that profit from the terror industry to further their own agendas.

Umar will be found dead in his cell, an apparent suicide. This case is not going to trial.
The timing of the latest charges was intended to blunt the uproar over the TSA and the body scanners.

Glad to see others catching on. Apparently it's easier when, like yourself, you have experienced it first hand.
I also have experienced it first hand. To this day I still have Anthrax in my house that was mailed to me in 2001. Just like you, I did my civic duty and gave agent Eric Davis at the Charlotte, NC FBI Steven Hatfill's last name when I caught him casing my house while wearing his army jacket in November of 2001. I got close enough to him to read his last name off of his jacket. That was a full 7 months before anyone had ever heard of Steven Hatfill. Needless to say Agent Davis did not do anything accept collude with his counter part, Special Agent Jim Page at the Raleigh, NC FBI to cover it up.
And now we see that Steven Hatfill was given $6 million by the DOJ.
Payment for a job so poorly done that this redneck was able to catch him.
The war on terror is a lie. It is really a war on the American people by it's corrupt, out of control government.

The 1009 Christmas bombing incident reesulted in the immediate installation of body scanners at airports. One must need to realize that these machines were already manufactured and were waiting for installation but for an excuse. That excuse to my mind was the so-called underwear bomber. 3000 people died so that the Government can plunder resources and yet the populace refuse even an unbiased investigation into the crime. No one can convince me that 19 cave dwellers controlled the activities of NORAD on 9-11-2001! It is shameful that those who, blinded by their indifference and ignorance, claim patriotism and are complicit in fanning the fire that is consuming our country. Will anything be left to salvage?

Glad to see more and more people catching on to what's happening to Amerika at the hands of our ruling elite.

May God forgive our once-great nation for its collective wickedness in putting into power those who will not fight for Liberty, but work OT to destroy it.

We're heading for a major cleansing. The good will win in the end, but it appears we'll go through hell first.

It's time to prepare.

Unfortunately this still is "your grandmother's red, white and blue USA." and Anonymous' "our once-treat nation".
The myth of the U.S. as a once compassionate governance, is to blame for people not able to see what is happening. It is propaganda we are taught since first grade and continuing through adulthood, so that citizens cannot/will-not believe the government can be so brutal. But just ask Native Americans about their tribal histories - to learn that our country was founded on genocide and continues to exact revenge on the less powerful who just want to be left alone to live good lives.

Thanks for your thoughts. More people need to speak out. May your courage inspire others.

I'm a newbie to your blog, having found it through following the yellow brick road of internet links, so I went back & read your previous post about the ludicrous US policy of letting terrorists into the country so "they can watch them."

If I'm not mistaken this was the same "policy" that facilitated the 1st Trade Center bombing by allowing folk like the Blind Sheik & Mohammed Ali to circumvent the watch list because they were recruiting for Afghanistani warriors to battle the Russians.
Ali even joined the Army, making it to Sgt., I believe. Ali also managed to conduct weekend training camps for Muslim radicals in upstate New York while in the US armed forces.

See Peter Lance's excellent books on these subjects.

Then there's the same policy greasing the wheels for the alleged perpetrators of the 2nd WTC attack as they tried to get Visas.

Gee, either the US government is lying about their actual motivations or our security apparatus is manned by complete imbeciles. I really don't see a 3rd alternative.

Hello Kurt,
I heard that you had written this update from a internet radio show, Media Monarchy. I was very glad, because I'm very interested in this case. I wonder if you can shed any light on the various explanations about a different young black man that they claim you mistook for Abdul ? Also, who is the guy who came forward to say you were mistaken. There's a lot I don't yet understand. Thanks!

This is Kurt Haskell. Another passenger called me out of the blue one week after the flight. He told me that he had a revelation that what I saw in Amsterdam was a security officer escorting an unaccompanied minor through security. I now believe that he was put up to making this call by the U.S. Government for the following reasons:
1. According to U.S. Customs, no unaccompanied minors were on our flight.
2. To have an escort through security, a minor must be age 11 or younger. Umar looks young, but definitely not 11.
3. I don't believe the Sharp Dressed Man worked in security as he did not wear a uniform as all of the other security personnel did.
4. The man that called me did not even claim that he saw this incident, but only that he had a revelation, and that he saw the minor in Detroit. A fact that is contradicted by U.S. Customs.
5. He claimed that I should not talk about the Sharp Dressed Man or I would look stupid when the truth came out. This was an amazing claim, since he did not even see what I witnessed.
6. I found out later that this caller works for a government contractor that receives a great deal of its income from the U.S. Government.
7. It would be amazing if an unaccompanied minor also had no luggage and wore a white t-shirt with jeans as Umar did. Remember, this was in the middle of winter and we were flying to Detroit. Everybody else had on winter clothes.
8. I also believe that the purpose of the FBI visit was to install doubt in my mind and not to help in the investigation.
9. Lastly, I question why other passengers have contacted me over the last year and have attempted to befriend me. Then when I think I have a new friend, he or she tries to subtly get me to believe that I did not see what I did. However, the evidence for this is more sketchy. Maybe I am just looking into that too much due to the earlier phone call.

Kurt, I am sorry you are experiencing PTSD. This will potentially be quite damaging to your health, so please keep focused in as positive a way as possible. Having listened to all 4 of your previous radio shows I have some concerns about jumping to conclusions with some of your causal theories relating too often to organized conspiracy, rather than the more likely chaos of disorganized incompetence followed by opportunism by the power elite and their sociopaths. The MO is: Never let a crisis go to waste... wink, wink, the path to fear-control & ultimate power! There is NO NEED to conspire & risk jail, when you just have to wait for the opportunity to seize that moment for power & policy as a political predator.

I have followed your situation, since you appeared on Alex Jones. I have listened to AJ for years now, and he is not honest or forthcoming about major falsehoods & his propaganda about 911 Truth. A perfect example is his continuous proposition that a missile hit the Pentagon, when all you have to do is watch the Google Video "Screw Loose Change" to expose these obvious falsehoods. These falsehoods, conspiracy false-flags, then create fog to prevent knowing the truth & our government is demonized hiding their real dangers.

For example, the FBI took all the Pentagon video for evidence for future criminal cases that may never come to fruition, but the prosecution will retain it for legal evidence reasons without public distribution. Cover-up or standard criminal law procedures?
The attorney offense/defense is adversarial by nature, so "the truth" is often withheld by both sides as a common artifact to get to "the truth" ultimately. These are criminal cases, so evidence privacy & secrecy are part of the equation -NOT conspiracy.

It is very possible, even likely, that Umar was being covertly handled in an incompetent way by various factions of the US government, and he was stupidly allowed to board the plane in an effort to track him & his contacts in the USA for intel, etc. I seriously doubt he would be given a dummy bomb that could still ignite causing a fire by a gov-agent employed by the USA??? Once overseas off of US soil our shadow government or rogue business or foreign elements can be involved, so it is hard to learn the truth from "there".

Instead, I suggest, focus on the idea of never letting a good crisis go to waste.

Bush-Cheney cronies knew a Pearl Harbor was coming from all the intel, but I think it is likely negligence & incompetence allowed for the terrorism to occur. The real conspiracy is what happens next... none of it is justified... we failed to PROFILE for terrorists & act by prevention AND, instead, preferred to gather intel about endless plots passively gathering information & just watching... but it was too late without prevention, in place, in the first place.

This is how War was then manufactured AND conspired. Yes, conspiracy! But "legalized" by the attack.

We Americans should have focused on firing everyone involved in tracking and preventing terrorists starting with the political & military elites. Then we needed to Profile for terrorists & prevent likely candidates from ever arriving in the USA, but that was/is politically incorrect. Bullshit & Evilshit by the Internationalist Control Elite.

Blaming "terrorists" & going to war is a cover-up for our own incompetence and failures to protect ourselves. It's a conspiracy opportunity for the military industrial complex to keep police state control over our country after the Cold War.

This is Kurt Haskell. I disagree 100% with your theories on incompetence. That is what the government would like you to believe. The people running the show are not stupid or incompetent. When you are involved in something like this and witness all of the intentional deceit that plays out day after day, you realize that the plot was no accident. Once it is proven,and it will be, that Umar was given an intentionally defective bomb, you will need to rethink your theory. I used to be of the same mindset until I had first hand involvement. The people running the show are greedy, evil and power hungry. If you have listened to my show, go back and listen to the Robert Merritt episode and rethink your conclusions. As for AJ, I have never listened to any of his shows. I have only listened to my specific interviews. I know that he sometimes stretches the truth. Anything that I say, I strongly believe in.

Hi Kurt,

You wrote

"Once it is proven,and it will be, that Umar was given an intentionally defective bomb, you will need to rethink your theory."

I admire your faith in the system but unfortunately I expect that if ever Umar is brought to trial he will either say nothing, be incoherent or will say exactly what he has been programmed to say.

The media legend has already been created (underwear bomber=body scanners) and the media will play its part to consistently build up the legend. The media will run from anything that undermines the legend (for example your evidence) and the media never, ever points out the contradictions in a story from day to day, it is the news delivered by a goldfish.

As an example, when JFK Junior's plane disappeared there was an appearance on TV by a guy from the airport who stated a precise time when JFK Jr's plane contacted the air traffic control tower in order to start the landing procedure. The guy never appeared again on TV as the story ran that they had no idea where the plane was and so had to search along the whole route.

Eventually the plane was found close to the airport and the NTSB report states that the plane never contacted the tower. However the flight of the plane was determined such that it would have reached the correct height to contact the tower at the exact time that the spokesman stated on TV.

This evidence was not dug up by a mainstream media documentary of course but by an independent researcher.

So you have a direct choice -

EITHER The airport spokesman was incorrect/lying on the TV and was lucky enough to guess the exact minute correctly.

OR For some reason "they" did not want the plane to be found quickly and so the fact that the plane contacted the airport tower had to be disappeared.

It now seems that "they" want your evidence disappeared also and I admire your persistence it ensuring that it isn't.
