Recently the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) placed a solicitation by way of the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) for 700 pounds of High Density Ammonium Nitrate and 700 pounds of A-5 Flake RDX.
With the delivery date scheduled for August 31, 2012, could DHS be planning a false flag attack involving a planted home-made bomb?
When creating a “makeshift terrorist bomb” ammonium nitrate is an integral ingredient.
The DHS was given oversight of procurement of ammonium nitrate after Congress requested they “regulate the sale and transfer of ammonium nitrate by an ammonium nitrate facility…to prevent the misappropriation or use of ammonium nitrate in an act of terrorism.”
The Ammonium Nitrate Security Program focuses on preventing a terrorist attack by use of ammonium nitrate in a home-made bomb by requiring that its sale and those that purchase it be registered with the DHS. Purchasers are screened against the Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB).
In the solicitation , the DHS did not specify information that a corporation seeking to reply with a bid would need.
In addition, DHS is requesting that high density ammonium nitrate and RDX (the required booster) be delivered to an undisclosed government facility in downtown Atlantic City, NJ.
The Pentagon has come before Congress decrying that domestic terrorist attacks may increase with the use of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in the US. They are asking Congress to lay aside Posse Comitatus (PCA) in an effort to increase their use of military on the streets of America.
Citing James Holmes’ apartment and use of home-made bombs, Army Lt. Gen. Michael Barbero told Congress that the threat “from both homegrown terrorists and global threat networks is real and presents a significant security challenge for the United States and our international partners.”
Strangely enough during the initial response to the Sikh shooting in Wisconsin, the police department arrived at the scene in tactical gear, armed with assault weapons in armored vehicles; including the police bomb unit (which Milwaukee County sheriff’s spokesperson Fran McLaughlin said she was not clear as to why the bomb unit were called to the scene).
In India, an estimated 3,500 tons of ammonium nitrate simply goes missing from Indian ports without a clue from local law enforcement as to where or who has stolen the explosive component which is preferred when making home-made bombs.
Ammonium nitrate was used in conjunction with nitromethane racing fuel (which is essentially jet fuel) when the 7,000 pound truck bomb was created for the Oklahoma City bombing. In this instance, domestic terrorist Timothy McVeigh was blamed for the bombing that was a false flag attack on American citizens in the name of gun control.
Back in 2010, Mark Penn who worked as an influential advisor to former President Clinton told Chris Matthews on Hardball that “President Clinton reconnected through Oklahoma, right? And the president right now seems removed. It wasn’t until that speech [after the bombing] that [Clinton] really clicked with the American public. Obama needs a similar” defining moment.
Robert Shapiro, writing for the Financial Times said a similar comment: “The bottom line here is that Americans don’t believe in President Obama’s leadership. He has to find some way between now and November of demonstrating that he is a leader who can command confidence and, short of a 9/11 event or an Oklahoma City bombing, I can’t think of how he could do that.”
In 2011, the DHS surprisingly “stepped back from conducting intelligence and analysis of home-grown extremism” By orders of the Obama administration, based on an intelligence report on Rightwing Extremism , the threat proposed by law enforcement by domestic terrorists has fallen on deaf ears.
According to the report, the failing economy combined with Obama’s re-election could create “violent radicalization”. Terms like “white supremacist” have come to light as a possible direction of domestic terror incidents. Mike Sena, intelligence official for the National Fusion Center Association believes that focusing on extremists is lacking in the DHS and must be more of a focal point.
One of the biggest proponents of having the DHS look deeper into “other types of terrorist groups” is the Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
In the recent Sikh shooting , Wade Michael Page was touted as a “frustrated neo-Nazi” white supremacist by the SPLC. The SPLC states that Page, supposed front man for the white supremacist rock band, “also attempted to purchase goods from the neo-Nazi National Alliance, then America’s most important hate group.”
The Batman and Sikh shootings are connected in ways that point to covert operations that go beyond the rescinding of our 2nd Amendment. James Holmes had IEDs, home-made bombs, while Wade Michael Page was a white supremacist. Both of these issues are being brought up in Senate committee meetings by members of DHS, the Pentagon and other federal agencies wherein they are being used to set the stage for something . . .
The MSM are disseminating the propaganda needed to place in the social meme that domestic terrorists who are part of extremist groups and are building home-made bombs are the next Boogeyman. From the Obama administration to DHS to the false flag shootings – something much bigger is coming and right now we are being prepared for it.
