When enemies don’t exist, they’re invented. Unsubstantiated terror threats lack credibility. They’re often fabricated, repeated with regularity. At issue is duplicitous fear-mongering to advance US interests. Threats are strategically timed. Unnamed senior officials say ”more than the usual chatter” was intercepted; public attention is diverted. Specifics are omitted; there are none. They don’t exist. The most recent alert on August 2nd, 2013 comes at the end of Ramadan, just days after Russia granted Edward Snowden temporary asylum and three days after Israeli/Palestinian (fake?) “peace talks” began. Most terror threats go public during an economic crisis or when the US uses the threat of war to escalate its presence. We’ve been told that terror alerts justify global spying and that the NSA needs to continue monitoring and collecting data-mining information on everyone.... all the time.... everywhere.
