The 9/11 Truth loonies
love the expression false flag
, anyone would think they had invented it. The suggestion that the September 11 attacks were orchestrated by the Bush White House or the Mossad or the Illuminati is ludicrous, but false flags are real, and there are times when one should definitely be suspected. The hallmarks of a false flag (in peacetime) are that nobody gets hurt, that the suspects are apprehended either in the act or close to its completion, and that either other suspects disappear or were really in on the plot. All these conditions have been met by the latest heroic efforts of the FBI in New York with the apprehension of Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis
, a young Bangladeshi man who is said to have travelled to the United States for the specific purpose of blowing up the Federal Reserve.
Who financed his jaunt to the Big Apple has not yet and may never be made clear, but it has already been claimed that the FBI sold him the explosives - which of course didn't explode. He even made a martyrdom video. Not everybody is impressed with this magnificent piece of undercover policing though; earlier this year even the BBC voiced its suspicion in rather guarded terms
that the only terrorist crimes the Feds are solving are the ones they themselves incite.
Meanwhile, in the UK, entrapment and incitement have been replaced by incompetence. Last month, two women police officers were murdered in a (hopefully) unique act of entrapment
. It was probably this that caused their cousins in Lancashire to err on the side of caution when they tasered a blind man.
The two CCTV grabs below are not very clear, but it was clear to 61 year old Colin Farmer
what happened. He was tasered with no warning - contrary to police guidelines - and then handcuffed for good measure. One would have thought by this time they would have realised what somebody thought was a samurai sword was actually his white stick.
Mr Farmer was obviously none too pleased when he spoke to the BBC, apparently today. The incident happened last Friday. He may well be angry but he should consider himself lucky. In September 1999, Harry Stanley was carrying a coffee table leg wrapped in a bag. Someone reported him carrying a firearm, and the poor bloke was shot dead
