British Foreign Secretary David Miliband has warned that the prospect of a terror attack was “very real” hours after a new audio tape, puportedly from bin Laden was aired.
Broadcast on al-Jazeera, the tape claimed responsibility for the botched bombing of Flight 253 over Christmas.
Even if he is still alive, bin Laden was a known intelligence asset who had extensive contact with the CIA. The fact that he is still free after nearly ten years, the invasion of Afghanistan and the most intensive manhunt in history should itself raise questions.
It has yet to be confirmed that bin Laden actually features on the tape but it comes on cue as Britain’s home secretary increased the terror threat level from “substantial” to “severe”.
Why he was allowed to board the flight even though MI5 knew of his extremist links? And why the bomber’s father, reportedly a Mossad asset, warned the authorities of the terror risk his son posed and nothing was done?
None of these questions has been addressed by the authorites or the mainstream media. Instead we get a string of anomolies connected to Flight 253 reported without question and now a sudden increase the terror threat level.
Nor does the corporate media ask why the man hunted in the most intensive man hunt in history is still able to make pronouncements so publicly.
Whatever the answer, the latest claimed bin Laden tape seems intended to up the level of public anxiety. Aided and abetted, of course, by the pronouncements of Zionists like Britain’s Foreign Secretary David Miliband.
Whether it will or not remains to be seen. For the more public pronouncements he makes the more bin Laden will be seen for what he really is: a contrived threat used to inspire fear and trepidation.
