Mossad Bombs US Again....
07 May 2002
Modified: 10:02:37 PM
It doesn't take a genius to figure out how and why the Mossad is terrorizing the Midwest, nor why most of "our" government is too blackmailed and moronic to do anything effective....
More Mailbox Sabotage

May 6 — The string of bombings and bomb attempts that have targeted three Midwestern states spread westward today as pipe bombs were found in Colorado and once again in Nebraska.

In Salida, Colo., a resident found a device in a mailbox at around 12:30 p.m. local time. Federal investigators and police cordoned off the scene, which was 12 blocks from the downtown area, until the bomb squad could inspect the mailbox.

The FBI confirmed to ABCNEWS affiliate KMGH in Denver that the device was a pipe bomb consistent with the those found in Iowa and Nebraska over the past three days.

"Initial description of the device indicates that its construction is consistent with those found recently in Nebraska and Iowa," the Denver FBI said a statement.

However, officials have not confirmed whether the device found in Colorado was the work of a copycat or linked to those found in Nebraska, Iowa and Illinois. Postal officials have asked people in Salida to leave their mailbox doors open so when letter carriers come by, they can see that the mailbox is empty.

The discovery in Colorado brought the total number of bombs found since Friday to 17. Today, another bomb was discovered near Hastings, Neb., bringing the total number of bombs found in Nebraska alone to eight.

"We have confirmed that an eighth bomb has been found. Beyond that we don't have any information," U.S. Postal Service spokesman David Failor told The Associated Press.

The bomb did not explode when it was found and no one was injured. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms was at the scene this afternoon, trying to recover the device intact. Other bombs found in Nebraska had been detonated safely.

Explosive devices placed in mailboxes injured six people Friday in Illinois and Iowa. Two other devices found in Iowa did not detonate. On Saturday, more bombs were found in parts of rural Nebraska, and another device was discovered on Sunday. Five of the six injured people were released from the hospital on Friday. The sixth, Doris Zimmerman, 61, was released today.

Variations in Bombs’ Triggering Devices

Anti-government propaganda accompanied the bombs, as well as threats of more attacks to come. Whoever is behind the pipe bomb attacks has already changed tactics once, and is highly likely to strike again, FBI and terrorism experts said.

Sources told ABCNEWS the pipe bombs were full of black powder and most were rigged to detonate as the mailboxes were opened.

Pipe bombs found in Nebraska on Saturday and Sunday, however, were placed in bags and designed to blow up once the bags were opened.

It was unclear whether the change was a deliberate change in strategy, or if the bomber simply did not have time to rig the devices to the Nebraska mailboxes.

Text from the typewritten notes found with the pipe bombs is especially disturbing, one former FBI official said.

The text read in part: "You allow yourself to fear death," perhaps indicating a preoccupation with death, according to criminal profiling experts.

Another portion, "The people I have dismissed from reality are not at all dead," suggests the attacker meant to kill, not merely injure or frighten.

"If death is just an illusion, which it appears to be to him, or a dismissal, or doesn't count, [or] has no consequences for an individual like this, then obviously the danger of this individual is really, really increased at that point.," said former FBI profiler Gregg McCrary.

The bomber's note also promises "more 'attention getters' are on the way."

FBI: Bombs Nearly Identical

The FBI said today the pipe bombs found so far are nearly identical and they appear to come from the same source.

"There is no question that these were planted by the same person or persons," FBI Agent Larry Holmquist told The Associated Press. He said letters found with the bombs were also identical.

FBI officials suspect the bombs are an act of domestic terrorism by one person disgruntled with the government.

In an interview with ABCNEWS' Good Morning America today, Clint Van Zandt, a former FBI profiler who helped catch the Unabomber, said early evidence suggests the attacks are not the work of a large, organized group.

"I think it's one person or maybe two people at most," Van Zandt said. "I think what he is trying to do is to suggest to you, I, and others is it is a much larger conspiracy."

Profiling the Bomber or Bombers

Van Zandt said the nature of the attacks points to a tentative profile of the assailant.

"In this case, normal default on something like this would be a white male," he said. "Unless we see any other indication of race or another indication of gender, it is a white male."

If the attacks are the work of a single individual or small group, Van Zandt said he was confident the attacker or attackers would be brought to justice.

"I think it is somebody the authorities will find fairly quickly," he said.

The U.S. Postal Service said precautions were being taken to protect employees.

"We are instructing our carriers not to deliver to any closed receptacles," Mike Matuzek, Postal Service district manager for Nebraska and southwest Iowa, told The Associated Press.

The Postal Service asked customers in Nebraska, Iowa and northwest Illinois with roadside delivery to remove their mailbox doors or find a way to keep them permanently open.

The bombs have already terrified many in the region.

"It's scary, and it's scaring a lot of people," said Patty Ballard, a resident of one of the affected communities. "I mean not to be able to open your mailbox, I mean that is insane."

Local and federal officials have called on the attacker to contact them and voice their grievances.

WWHHAATT MMOOSSAADD ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

So, where is your evidence to support the headline ? Why not 'Usama Bin Cheney', you have as much evidence!



Stop wasting electrons!








Peace!
It's obvious
07 May 2002
Hey, bub, Jon makes it perfectly clear in his summary that it's obvious that the Mossad is involved and that the government is too stupid to do anything about it. He says it doesn't take a genius to figure it out.

So, if you can't figure it out, it's obviously not because Jon isn't making sense or has nothing to back his assertion--it must be because you're a dummy! Maybe Jon figures that if you don't know, you just wouldn't understand.

Is that about how the logic works here, Jon?
Osama Bush Mossad
07 May 2002
I've got thousands of pages of evidence, not to mention a lifetime of experience dealing with the Mossad and other corporate-government terrorists.

Isn't it interesting that nobody in the USA is allowed to discuss the issue of that one foreign spy agency?

Gee.... I wonder why?

In other countries, people are allowed to discuss the Mossad. Why not here???

If any of you wish to employ your brain cells, do your own research. No need to take my word for it.

You might start, for instance, with the 1980 October Surprise in which George Bush conspired with Iran and Israel to hold the American hostages in Iran to discredit Jimmy Carter and transform the political-economic landscape for the next few decades.

Or jump to the present situation regarding 9-11, Iraq and the Wolfowitz gang.

But... ignorance is bliss, ain't it? We can pretend there's only two sides of every conflict and disregard real history.
