I believe that the following three bombing incidents were Inside Jobs, that is, carried out with governmental assistance: the Oklahoma City bombing on April 19, 1995, the London Tube bombings on July 7, 2005, and the Boston Marathon bombing of April 15, 2013.
Needless to say I cannot prove it. I lack any confessions from the principals, videotapes of the planting of the bomb, or eyewitness whistleblowers from within the judicial system. But let me walk you through my hypothesis by asking: “What would a governmental team need if it were to conduct a bombing?”
They would need:
- A team of experts in production and usage of bombs
- A story, believable to the public, of how a foreign group, or ideologically motivated individuals, would do such a thing
- A set of media reporters who could announce, in print and on TV, some aspects of the event, while leaving a few questions unanswered at first
- A very compliant police administration to support “the story” about the way the bombings were accomplished
- A national government agency that could see to it that anyone arrested would be taken to the right place
- A collection of evidence against the arrestees, for example: receipts proving that they had purchased weapons material, phone records showing that they conspired with others, pals to declare that they had discussed their motives, and videos of them attending the crime scene.
- A control of all courts such that no judge would speak out, or allow witness testimony to uncover the truth.
At the outset, we can see that a government is in a perfect position to manage all of the above. I wager that if the government of the United States wanted there to be a bombing in Chicago next month, they could carry it off flawlessly. A large percent of American citizens would believe the narrative.
Even those who were skeptical would not make much of a dent in the carefully generated impression that the named terrorists were involved in the events. This is primarily because the human brain can’t picture the leaders of the nation, the police, or the courts, as harming the people. “Why would they di such a thing?” Even the ‘prestigious’ media is assumed to be fundamentally benign. “They care for us.”
There is also the apparent impossibility of bringing government people to book, should the public become aware that Government caused the bombings. In London, you can’t very well call Scotland Yard to report that Scotland Yard has done the Tube bombing. (Well, maybe you can, and should, but it’s counterintuitive.)
Will it help to go shouting to the office of London’s Daily Mail or The Guardian? No. The folks there clearly know that the story they have printed is false (as they know where the “facts” they used came from) and thus the editors must be knowingly in cahoots with Government operatives.
Could you go to your MP or town mayor or whatever? There are a few honest MPs. Robin Cook, ex-foreign minister of UK, comes to mind. He resigned from the House of Commons to protest the invasion of Iraq. However, 30 days after the London bombings, he passed away (age 59), so was not available as a possible commentator on that event.
There may be an honest mayor somewhere, but the 2013 mayor of Boston doesn’t strike me as one of them. (Fancy him locking the city down and even cancelling the trains.) The governor of Oklahoma in 1995 was not someone we would expect to tattle on the FBI — the FBI being the main suspect, in my opinion.
Can you make your plaint to some judges? We did not see Judge George A O’Toole so much as raise an eyebrow when Dzhokar Tsarnaev’s “defense attorney” proclaimed “He did it.” Nor did that judge’s instructions to the jury contain anything that looked like a word of caution about, say, Judy Clarke’s omitting to cross-examine any of the prosecution’s witnesses.
Some Mistakes That Leaked Out
In each of the three bombings, numerous items engendered doubt about the alleged criminals’ participation – or provided insights into government’s participation, whichever way you prefer to look at it. Examples:
- On the very day of the London bombing, Peter Power of Visor Consultants stated on radio that he was running a “drill’ for an explosion at the very same Tube stations that experienced the real thing.
- In the OKC bombing, a city cop named Terrence Yeakey had found explosives inside the building (contrary to the story of all the damage having come from Tim McVeigh’s Ryder truck outside). Yeakey, a happy Dad of two children, then suicided.
- Someone posted on Youtube, way back in May 2013, a video of Tamelan Tsarnaev face down on the ground in custody of police. He had no gunshot wounds, so could not have been killed in a shootout with police as the story boldly alleges.
Stop Blaming the Patsy
It’s about time we moved into the next phase of our pubic life in which we stop saying stupid things like “Oswald killed JFK.” All the necessary data has been available for a long time to prove – and I do mean prove – that the patsy was a patsy.
Let’s grow up real fast and never again say “the three Muslim boys blew up the London Tube in 2005;” “Timothy McVeigh blew up the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City in 1995;” and “the Tsarnaev brothers blew up the finish line at the 2013 Boston Marathon.”
I believe we should even stop sleuthing 24/7 in an effort to collect a mountain of evidence to prove that the FBI did it. (Or, for London, that MI6 did it.) Who needs a mountain? And what good would it do?
We already have enough. It is unimaginable that amateurs could pull off any of the events. It has to have been highly coordinated. All the cases are so similar!
Please do what you can to put this business on a new footing.
Mary W Maxwell, a graduate of University of Adelaide Law School, can be reached at ProsecutionForTreason.com. She has retired from sleuthing (as of a minute ago). But she’s more than willing to discuss the Marathon case with anyone who agrees that it’s silly to put the Tsarnaev boy to death for a bombing committed by Government.
