BREAKING: Suspicious Devices from Yemen Targeted Chicago Synagogues; I Called it: “Dry Run”

By Debbie Schlussel

Earlier today, I told you that federal authorities were sweeping three UPS cargo planes in the U.S. from Europe and a UPS Truck in Queens after suspicious devices were allegedly detected in cargo.  I said that even if there was nothing to the packages that it was likely a dry run.  And I was right.  Moreover, the devices, which were dry-run fake bombs from Yemen, were addressed to Chicago synagogues. ****  UPDATE:  Packages were also found in Dubai**** Hey, it’s our friends in the “Religion of Peace” . . . AGAIN #3,178,122.


A suspicious package containing a toner cartridge with wires and powder was found during routine screening of cargo in the United Kingdom, prompting authorities to scour vehicles in the United States on Friday. Planes in Philadelphia and Newark, N.J., were being swept, as was a truck in New York City.

Officials were investigating whether the suspicious packages were a dry run for a mail bomb plot.

CNN reported that sources believe the devices that came from Yemen were intended for Chicago synagogues. . . . American intelligence had been informed within the last 24 hours about devices on flights from the Middle East intended for synagogues in Chicago.

During a basic security screening process in the United Kingdom, officials found a suspicious item on the cargo plane, according to a U.S. government official who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the ongoing investigation, the Associated Press reported.

U.K. officials discovered that a toner cartridge on the plane had been manipulated and found wires attached to it and white powder. Tests on the device came back negative for explosives, according to a law enforcement official who also spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the investigation.

Concerns about the possibility of similar and potentially dangerous devices shipped elsewhere prompted officials to check other cargo planes headed to the U.S. . . .

In New York City, police responded to reports of a possible explosive in a UPS at the Queensboro Bridge, top NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said. Browne said the package was removed and was being examined in Brooklyn.

I guess, since I wrote about this, Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar will walk out on me and AP and CNN, etc. After all, this wasn’t the Muslims, right? ‘Cuz everyone in Yemen is Protestant, right? And, to quote the absurd Whoopi/Caryn Johnson, “Are you saying that Muhammad Ali did this? ‘Cuz he’s a Muslim.”

It shows cargo delivery services can be compromised. UPS, Fed-Ex and DHL should institute a policy not to deliver third party packages.

Any packages would have to be ordered by the customer. That’s no guarantee of anything going amiss but its hardly likely any one is going to order a good from Yemen.

Which by the way is Al Qaeda territory as we know from its slick magazine inspire.

They are constantly probing for loopholes to attack us. They may not succeed with this one if cargo delivery policies are tightened like I advocate but they won’t give up.

Evil never does. And there will be a next time. Count on it.

Yes, it was an Islam Inside job. But don’t expect the brain-dead hags on “The View” to get it.

Just effing wonderful. Of course, my parents would be in Europe doing a river cruise.

Looks like that infinitesimally small percentage of Muslims that love to kill nonbelievers have been busy hijacking their peace loving religion yet again. Those few hijackers of Islam sure seem to get around.

Your analysis is likely to be entirely correct.

Suspicious sort that I am though, I am struck by the timing of this, four days before an important midterm election, and here is our sterling president announcing his great action of stopping a terrorist attack against synagogues. Here is our great leader defending the Jewish people, with whom he has lost a lot of favor in recent months (although unfortunately not enough).

I hope this isn’t some contrivance to falsify a terrorist attack to win points for Obama and the Democrats for the election. While I don’t think this is likely, and while I think your analysis is probably correct, I can’t rule out a contrived attack to win political points, given the elitest and near-totalitarian mentality of Obama and leading Democrats.

I know this sounds conspiratorial, but conspiracies do exist sometimes, especially when dealing with amoral people.

    You could be correct. CNN’s Spitzer just had a high ranking intelligence official say how much Obama has changed his focus from “closing GITMO” and calling FT.Hood and “isolated incident” to identifying these attacks as islamic extremists. I personally don’t think its enough to gain any dem votes, but it could be a political tactic….doubtful, put possible.

    My hope is that this backfires on Obama. Surveys have shown that when it comes to fighting terrorism, the American people trust CONSERVATIVES, not liberals. Liberals are too busy apologizing to and coddling the terrorists. Conservatives want to take the fight to the terrorists and wipe them out.

    I am reminded of the attack in Spain right before an election – which caused the idiot Spanish to elect a communist. Perhaps this was some of the motivation behind the timing of these “dry run” attacks. Again, my hope is that, if this is true, it will backfire on them big time, and we will vote in conservatives.

    Naturally, people like Pelosi will decry the American people voting out of “fear.” Hey, we didn’t cause the fear lady, and it’s clear you have no intention of fighting the people who are causing the fear. Therefore, we don’t need YOU.

Violent people? In Yemen? Noooooo…. they’re all humble Jedi masters dressed in their typical clothes made from bedsheets, and doing their peaceful meditations.

As for timing it is sooo typical – to increase terror activity shortly before elections, to scare people and make them doubt in democracy, to provoke people to make some silly short-sighted demands onto politicians. That timing also allows fueling conspiracy theories.
It’s a well done homework from lessons taught by GRU back in USSR era.

This whole story sounds like a contrived “false flag”.
Why would any serious Islamic terrorist post a bomb from *Yemen* – which is practically Judenrein – to synagogues in Chicago? It would obviously trigger suspicions, and there are plenty of Islamists in Chicago to do any dirty work if a Chicago synagogue were to be targeted.
Even the “dry run” hypothesis doesn’t really add up – Islamic terror groups would be well aware that such a plot would have a very low chance of success.

I don’t pretend to know exactly what’s behind this story, but I can see the kind of effects it’s script is going to have on various target audiences:
a) It targets the “anti-Islamisation” movement and misdirects their attention onto ghosts in Yemen.
b) It targets the “truth” movement and others who are somewhat familiar with false flag operations, and reaffirms the notion that Islam is being unfairly targeted.

Both of these target audiences – and there are many more – are thus directed to look away from the fact that it is primarily Western Establishments who are behind the Islamisation of the West agenda.

It will be interesting to see what direction this story goes in, if indeed it goes anywhere at all.

The timing, lack of security agreements at overseas airports, changing stories (first all inert, then all are live), “Chicago Synagogs,” and all linked-now-to an “American” wanted by the U.S…whom used to work for the U.S.?? A U.S. Navy port is needed in the Persian Gulf, and viola, we’re sending “agents” and “advisors.” …doesn’t sound right.
While Islam sux, if one really does the work with logic-and remembers world history (the “fall” of the “evil empire” [USSR]-Islam is the PERFECT vehicle to usher in a global government with absolute control, for our “peace and security.” It’s called “spoon feeding.”
