TERROR WITNESS, KURT HASKELL REFUSES TO BE SILENCED
3rd RATE COVERUP NOT UP TO NORMAL AMERICAN STANDARDS

Haskell Story by MiLive Reporter Aaron Foley
The Detroit terror attack can, if we, the people, finally demand justice, bring down the mechanism that has allowed the phony War on Terror to murder hundreds of thousands around the world for profit. 9/11 began as a disaster and ended up as an empty hull, hollowed as lie after lie was exposed. Even when Governor Kean, head of the 9/11 Commission called for a criminal investigation of the conspiracy uncovered, nothing was done. Did it all start with the USS Liberty in 1967? Did we decide we would allow Americans to be slaughtered for the “greater good?” When people ask for “9/11 truth,” why is that resisted? What has been proven is that something is being hidden and the “hiding” is being done by a conspiracy.
One thing about being a journalist, blogger, military analyst or whatever it is we do here, information flows in from around the world. You make friends, American, Israeli, Egyptian, Nigerian, Pakistani, Indian, Japanese, people from everywhere, often in government or the police or even the intelligence services. They trust you as you will speak up in ways they know they can’t. The information flows in, things you would never tell, things that make the news we are fed seem like sickening childish lies. Thus, when a second suspect with what appears to be a second larger bomb is arrested in Detroit on the SAME plane, the “Men in Black” witness threatening baloney starts. Wake up! We aren’t afraid of you anymore!
Sometimes it takes one little thing. An idiot on a plane tries to blow himself up with a bomb that, were if perfect, would have injured a few people but done little or no damage. How do I know this? People talk. The bomber was the son of a rich banker who worked, not in banking but in the arms industry with Israel and is married to a woman from Yemen. A child could find this out in 5 minutes. Our news may discover it weeks from now. And so it goes….
Ah, Yemen. Terrorists are there. Where did they come from? American let them out of prison and sent them there. What does Yemen say? They say the terrorists we sent them are being managed by Israel. How do I know this? This is in the news, in this case, the BBC.
Then the lies start. The Dutch, so efficient, make such terrible liars. They should learn from us. We are experts. Anyway, lets look at Aaron Foley’s story and the fight a brave man is making against FBI and Customs officials that, for some reason, want to create a cover story so we won’t know that two Indian nationals arranged for the terrorist attack in Detroit.
Why would India, sworn enemy of Pakistan and ally of Israel want to make people believe that terrorists in Yemen, fanatical Muslims that seem to really be Jews working with Indians have just attacked the United States? Does it even matter? Do we even want to know? Would we all be happier if our government showed us some respect and started making a better attempt at lying, like back during the Bush years when everything was a lie.
Now, with only some things lies, I find life unsettling, confusing, even upsetting. Bring back the psychopaths of the Bush era, Condi Rice, Paul Wolfowitz, Ashcroft and Gonzales and Darth Cheney. We don’t need to know that our allies hate us and that the people we pay to defend us may even hate us more. Our troops are in Afghanistan, fighting in cold, some hungry and miserable, some outnumbered, some have spent years away from home.
I feel ashamed to ask them to fight for a government that allows what you will be reading:
Thursday, Dec 31st, 2009Following up on a visit from FBI officials about an eyewitness account first described to MLive.com, Michigan attorney Kurt Haskell described the visit in comment sections across MLive on Wednesday.
Haskell and his wife, Lori, were aboard Flight 253 when Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab allegedly tried to destroy the plane. They say another man tried to help Abdulmutallab board the plane in Amsterdam. Haskell had two detailed posts in two different stories.
Here is Part One, originally posted here:
“Today is the second worst day of my life after 12-25-09. Today is the day that I realized that my own country is lying to me and all of my fellow Americans. Let me explain.Ever since I got off of Flight 253 I have been repeating what I saw in US Customs.
Specifically, 1 hour after we left the plane, bomb sniffing dogs arrived. Up to this point, all of the passengers on Flight 253 stood in a small area in an evacuated luggage claim area of an airport terminal.
During this time period, all of the passengers had their carry on bags with them. When the bomb sniffing dogs arrived, 1 dog found something in a carry on bag of a 30 ish Indian man. This is not the so called “Sharp Dressed” man. I will refer to this man as “The man in orange”.
The man in orange, who stood some 20ft away from me the entire time until he was taken away, was immediately taken away to be searched and interrogated in a nearby room. At this time he was not handcuffed.
When he emerged from the room, he was then handcuffed and taken away. At this time an FBI agent came up to the rest of the passengers and said the following (approximate quote) “You all are being moved to another area because this area is not safe.
I am sure many of you saw what just happened (Referring to the man in orange) and are smart enough to read between the lines and figure it out.” We were then marched out of the baggage claim area and into a long hallway.
This entire time period and until we left customs, no person that wasn’t a law enforcement personnel or a passenger on our flight was allowed anywhere on our floor of the terminal (or possibly the entire terminal)
The FBI was so concerned during this time, that we were not allowed to use the bathroom unless we went alone with an FBI agent, we were not allowed to eat or drink, or text or call anyone.
I have been repeating this same story over the last 5 days. The FBI has, since we landed, insisted that only one man was arrested for the airliner attack (contradicting my account).
However, several of my fellow passengers have come over the past few days, backed up my claim, and put pressure on FBI/Customs to tell the truth. Early today, I heard from two different reporters that a federal agency (FBI or Customs) was now admitting that another man has been held (and will be held indefinitely) since our flight landed for “immigration reasons.”
Notice that this man was “being held” and not “arrested”, which was a cute semantic ploy by the FBI to stretch the truth and not lie.Just a question, could that mean that the man in orange had no passport? However, a few hours later, Customs changed its story again.
This time, Mr. Ron Smith of Customs, says the man that was detained “had been taken into custody, but today tells the news the person was a passenger on a different flight.”
Mr. Ron Smith, you are playing the American public for a fool. Lets take a look at how plausible this story is (After you’ve already changed it twice).
For the story to be true, you have to believe, that:
1. FBI/Customs let passengers from another flight co-mingle with the passengers of flight 253 while the most important investigation in 8 years was pending. I have already stated that not one person who wasn’t a passenger or law enforcement personnal was in our area the entire time we were detained by Customs.
2. FBI/Customs while detaining the flight 253 passengers in perhaps the most important investigation since the last terrorist attack, and despite not letting any flight 253 passenger drink, eat, make a call, or use the bathroom, let those of other flights trample through the area and possibly contaminate evidence.
3. You have to believe the above (1 and 2) despite the fact that no flights during this time allowed passengers to exit off of the planes at all and were detained on the runway during at least the first hour of our detention period.
4. You have to believe that the man that stood 20 feet from me since we entered customs came from a mysterious plane that never landed, let its passengers off the plane and let this man sneak into our passenger group despite having extremely tight security at this time (i.e. no drinking even).
5. FBI/Customs was hauling mysterious passengers from other flights through the area we were being held to possibly comtaminate evidence and allow discussions with suspects on Flight 253 or to possibly allow the exchange of bombs, weapons or other devices between the mysterious passengers from other flights and those on flight 253.
Seriously Mr. Ron Smith, how stupid do you think the American public is?Mr. Ron Smith’s third version of the story is an absolute inplausible joke. I encourage you, Mr. Ron Smith, to debate me anytime, anywhere, and anyplace in public to let the American people see who is credible and who is not.
I ask, isn’t this the more plausible story:
1. Customs/FBI realized that they screwed up and don’t want to admit that they left flight 253 passengers on a flight with a live bomb on the runway for 20 minutes.
2. Customs/FBI realized that they screwed up and don’t want to admit that they left flight 253 passengers in customs for 1 hour with a live bomb in a carry on bag.
3. Customs/FBI realize that the man in orange points to a greater involvement then the lone wolf theory that they have been promoting.Mr. Ron Smith I encourage you to come out of your cubicle and come up with a more plausible version number 4 of your story.”
“For the last five days I have been reporting my story of the so called “sharp dressed man.” For those of you who haven’t read my account, it involves a sharp dressed “Indian man” attempting to talk a ticket agent into letting a supposed “Sudanese refugee” (The terrorist) onto flight 253 without a passport.
I have never had any idea how it played out except to note that the so called “Sudanese reefugee” later boarded my flight and attempted to blow it up and kill me. At no time did my story involve, or even find important whether the terrorist actually had a passport.
The importance of my story was and always will be, the attempt with an accomplice (apparently succesful) of a terrorist with all sorts of prior terrorist warning signs to skirt the normal passport boarding procedures in Amsterdam.
By the way, Amsterdam security did come out the other day and admit that the terrorist did not have to “Go through normal passport checking procedures”.
Amsterdam security, please define to the American public “Normal passport boarding procedures”.
You see the FBI would have the American public believe that what was important was whether the terrorist in fact had a passport.
Seriously think about this people. You have a suicide bomber who had recently been to Yemen to but a bomb, whose father had reported him as a terrorist, who supposedly was on some kind of U.S. terror watchlist, and most likely knew the U.S. was aware of these red flags.
Yet, he didn’t go through “Normal passport checking procedures.” What does that mean? Maybe that he flashed a passport to some sort of sympathetic security manager in a backroom to avoid a closer look at the terrorist’s “red flags”?
What is important is that the terrorist avoided using normal passport checking procedures (apparently successfully) in order to avoid a closer look into his red flags. Who cares if he had a passport.
The important thing is that he didn’t want to show it and somehow avoided a closer inspection and “normal passport checking procedures.” Each passport comes with a bar code on it that can be scanned to provide a wealth of information about the individual.
I would bet that the passport checking procedures for the terrorist did not include a bar code scan of his passport (which could have revealed damning information about the terrorist).Please note that there is a very easy way to verify the veracity of my prior “sharp dressed man” account.
Dutch police have admitted that they have reviewed the video of the “sharp dressed man” that I referenced. Note that it has not been released anywhere, You see, if my eye witness account is false, it could easily be proven by releasing the video.
However, the proof of my eyewitness account would also be verified if I am telling the truth and I am.
There is a reason we have only heard of the video and not seen it. dutch authorities, “RELEASE THE VIDEO!” This is the most important video in 8 years and may be all of two minutes long.
Show the entire video and “DO NOT EDIT IT”! The American public deserves its own chance to attempt to identify the “sharp dressed man”.
I have no doubt that if the video indicated that my account was wrong, that the video would have already swept over the entire world wide web.
Instead of the video, we get a statment that the video has been viewed and that the terrorist had a passport. Each of these statements made by the FBI is a self serving play on semantics and each misses the importance of my prior “sharp dressed man” account.
The importance being that the man “Tried to board the plane with an accomplice and without a passort”. The other significance is that only the airport security video can verify my eyewitness account and that it is not being released.
