Fabricated Homeland Security Report on ISIS
by Stephen Lendman
Fear-mongering in America has been intense since the 9/11 mother of false flag attacks - state-sponsored terror, falsely blamed on convenient patsies.
Later the same day I told my brother "they're drinking champagne in the White House tonight." Concerned about what would follow, who could have imagined how bad things would get.
For the past 15 years, America has been on a slippery slope toward full-blown tyranny and nuclear war. It doesn't get any worse than that.
America was never beautiful from inception. Today it's fascist governance with nukes, the unthinkable possibility of using them to assert US global dominance.
A new Homeland Security (DHS) report is titled "Terror Gone Viral, Overview of the 100+ ISIS-linked plots against the West" - from 2014 to 2016.
In February 2016 testimony before Senate Armed Services Committee members, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper lied, claiming:
"There are now more Sunni violent extremist groups, members, and safe havens than at any time in history."
"ISIL, including its eight established and several more emerging branches, has become the preeminent global terrorist threat."
"ISIL's leaders are determined seek to strike the US homeland - beyond inspiring homegrown violent extremist attacks."
According to CIA director John Brennan in testimony before Senate Select Committee on Intelligence members in June:
"Unfortunately despite all our progress against ISIL on the battlefield and in the financial realm, our efforts have not reduced the group's terrorism capability and global reach."
The late Chalmers Johnson called the CIA the president's secret, unaccountable private army, similar to Imperial Rome's praetorian guard - a global hit squad incompatible with democracy.
The FBI under the Justice Department's jurisdiction operates as lawlessly - a rogue agency of repression, dirty tricks its specialty - from illegal spying to black propaganda to framing innocent victims authorities want eliminated to cold-blooded murder.
The FBI, CIA and DHS operate as America's Gestapo. Their mission is enforcing police state ruthlessness, waging war OF terror on innocent victims, falsely accused of domestic terrorism, trumped up charges with no credible evidence proving them - Muslims nearly always targeted.
Rutherford Foundation president John Whitehead compared America's police state with earlier ones - from the Roman Empire to more modern times.
Their similarities include "(s)ecret police. Secret government agencies. Surveillance. Intimidation. Harassment. Torture. Brutality. Widespread corruption. Entrapment. Indoctrination." And, of course, imperial wars for conquest and dominance.
No nation in world history is more powerful, ruthless and dangerous than America - none more able to destroy planet earth by design or accident.
Fear-mongering gets people to accept deplorable policies they'd otherwise oppose. DHS lied, claiming 100 or more ISIS-related plots against Western nations in the past two years - 41 on US soil, 44% in 2016 succeeding, up from less than one-third last year.
ISIS is a US creation, supported with funding, weapons, training and direction, its leaders chosen by Washington, serving their imperial master for special benefits they derive.
Why would they bite the hand feeding them? Allies don't attack each other. Claims about ISIS-related attacks on US soil in the past two years or earlier are pure rubbish. None occurred. No so-called plots existed.
In an earlier article, James Petras explained "(o)ver the past fifty plus years, over 125 mass shootings/massacres have occurred within the United States but not one perpetrator has been identified as a trained member of an international Islamist terrorist organization."
High-profile incidents like the Boston Marathon bombings, Sandy Hook, San Bernardino and most recently Orlando were state-sponsored false flags - gross miscarriage of justice victimizing innocent patsies, the public none the wiser, media scoundrels perpetuating the Big Lie, suppressing hard truths.
The only terrorist threat Americans face is state-sponsored - a ruthless rogue state more sinister and deadly than any other in history.
