The “Underwear Bomber” Had Help from the U.S. Government

Written by Gary North on February 17, 2012

In the hoopla about the so-called underwear bomber, this got little publicity. One of the people on the plane has gone public with an amazing account. This is from his blog site.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Every victim of a crime in Michigan is entitled to make a statement in open court regarding the impact of the crime on their life. The statement is limited to the victim’s physical, emotional and financial well being as it relates to the crime. Keep that in my as you read my statement. Below is a copy of the victim impact statement I gave today at the Underwear Bomber sentencing hearing. When reading my statement, keep in mind that I am a practicing attorney in the State of Michigan. In addition, I regularly practice in the Court the hearings are taking place at and therefore, I am somewhat limited as to what I can say. We were limited to 5 minutes each.

I wish to thank the Court for allowing me these 5 minutes to make my statement. My references to the government in this statement refer to the Federal Government excluding this Court and the prosecution. On Christmas Day 2009, my wife and I were returning from an African safari and had a connecting flight through Amsterdam. As we waited for our flight, we sat on the floor next to the boarding gate. What I witnessed while sitting there and subsequent events have changed my life forever. While I sat there, I witnessed Umar dressed in jeans and a white t-shirt, being escorted around security by a man in a tan suit who spoke perfect American English and who aided Umar in boarding without a passport. The airline gate worker initially refused Umar boarding until the man in the tan suit intervened. The event meant nothing to me at the time. Little did I know that Umar would try to kill me a few hours later as our flight approached Detroit. The final 10 minutes of our flight after the attack were the worst minutes of my life. During those 10 minutes I sat paralyzed in fear. Unfortunately, what happened next has had an even greater impact on my life and has saddened me further.

When we landed, I was shocked that our plane taxied up to the gate. I was further shocked that we were forced to sit on the plane for 20 minutes with powder from the so called bomb all over the cabin. The officers that boarded the plane did nothing to ensure our safety and did not check for accomplices or other explosive devices. Several passengers trampled through parts of the bomb as they exited the plane. We were then taken into the terminal with our unchecked carry on bags. Again, there was no concern for our safety even though Umar told the officers that there was another bomb on board as he exited the plane. I wondered why nobody was concerned about our safety, accomplices or other bombs and the lack of concern worried me greatly. I immediately told the FBI my story in order to help catch the accomplice I had seen in Amsterdam. It soon became obvious that the FBI wasn’t interested in what I had to say, which upset me further. For one month the government refused to admit the existence of the man in the tan suit before changing course and admitting his existence in an ABC News article on January 22, 2010. That was the last time the government talked about this man. The video that would prove the truth of my account has never been released. I continue to be emotional upset that the video has not been released. The Dutch police, meanwhile, in this article (show article), also confirmed that Umar did not show his passport in Amsterdam which also meant that he didn’t go through security as both are in the same line in Amsterdam. It upsets me that the government refuses to admit this fact.

I became further saddened from this case, when Patrick Kennedy of the State Department during Congressional hearings, admitted that Umar was a known terrorist, was being followed, and the U.S. allowed him into the U.S. so that it could catch Umar’s accomplices. I was once again shocked and saddened when Michael Leiter of the National Counter terrorism Center admitted during these same hearings that intentionally letting terrorists into the U.S. was a frequent practice of the U.S. Government. I cannot fully explain my sadness, disappointment and fear when I realized that my government allowed an attack on me intentionally.

During this time, I questioned if my country intentionally put a known terrorist onto my flight with a live bomb. I had many sleepless nights over this issue. My answer came shortly thereafter. In late 2010, the FBI admitted to giving out intentionally defective bombs to the Portland Christmas Tree Bomber,the Wrigley Field Bomber and several others. Further, Mr. Chambers was quoted in the Free Press on January 11, 2011 when he indicated that the government’s own explosives experts had indicated that Umar’s bomb was impossibly defective. I wondered how that could be. Certainly, I thought, Al Qaeda wouldn’t go through all of the trouble to plan such an attack only to provide the terrorist with an impossibly defective bomb.

I attended nearly all of the pretrial hearings. At the hearing on January 28, 2011, I was greatly disappointed by the prosecution’s request to block evidence from Mr. Chambers “as it could then be able to be obtained by third parties, who could use it in a civil suit against the government”. It really bothered me that the government apparently was admitting to wrongdoing of some kind as it admitted that it was concerned it would be sued. It further upset me to know that the government was putting its own interests ahead of those of the passengers.

When I attended the jury selection hearings, I questioned why versions of the same two questions kept coming up, those being:

1. Do you think whether you’ll be able to tell whether something is actually a bomb? and

2. Do you realize that sometimes the media doesn’t always tell the truth?

I continued to be greatly saddened at this point as I felt the truth continued to be hidden.

When Umar listed me as his only witness, I was happy to testify, not on his behalf, but on behalf of the truth. I never expected to testify, as my eyewitness account would have been too damaging to the myth that the government and media are putting forward. A mere 5 days after I was announced as a witness, there was an inexplicable guilty plea which exasperated me as I no longer would be testifying.

In closing I will just say that regardless of how the media and government try to shape the public perception of this case, I am convinced that Umar was given an intentionally defective bomb by a U.S. Government agent and placed on our flight without showing a passport or going through security, to stage a false terrorist attack to be used to implement various government policies.

The effect this matter has had on my life has been astounding and due to this case, I will never trust the government in any matter, ever.

In regards to sentencing, nothing I’ve said excuses the fact that Umar tried to kill me. He has waived his valid claim to the entrapment defense. Umar, you are not a great Muslim martyr, you are merely a “Patsy”. I ask the court to impose the mandatory sentence.

    and is anyone surprised???? The only thing that lies and tries to hid the truth and deceive the public more than the MEDIA is our GOVERNMENT. This crooked illegal traitorous Government is ran by some of the best criminals CHICAGO has to offer. GET used to it, its going to get worse before November Elections {“if Martial Law isn’t declared first”} If the american public allows O’Vomit to be re-elected or steal the elections again, it “WILL” be the end of this country as we know it. Quit drinking their KOOLAID.. Stop the Insanity.. Freedom “Isn’t” Free… OORAH… SEMPER FI

  2. SweetOlBob says:

    Sweet little Bucthie Napolitano at work. "The System Worked !" Too bad some heroic Ducthman wasn't there to tackle the guy before he got on the plane and save her beanie weenies again.

  3. GOVERNMENT & MEDIA are one and the same. PROPAGANDA & Brainwashing…just look at what is "news"

  4. Most so-called "terrorists" paraded before the media and courts are losers recruited by undercover FBI informants (who only get rewarded if they "find" terrorists under every bed and park bench). This is a repeat of the Dark Ages when agents of the church and state were ordered to find witches and heretics to burn at the stake in that era's "war on terror".

    In 2005 Iraqi police in Basra arrested a group of SAS commandos (British equivalent of the Green Berets) disguised as Arabs with face paint, weapons, the works. Iraq was going to be put these clowns on trial before the world, which would have blown the big lie behind the "war on terror", so SAS literally crashed through the jailhouse wall to rescue their undercover compatriots. This new security-industrial complex we live under is all based on lies and propaganda.

  5. Bill Hutcherson says:

    We the American people will never know the whole truth of this current administration. I guess its better we don't, and really the truth will never be told as long as the Obumer is in office. Nothing should surprise us at this point, this is the most corrupt Government in the history of this great Nation bar none.

  6. Wayne Shrock says:

    With obama in office illegally and with him doing all he can to destroy America, why should it supprise anyone that he will do anything he can to kill all he can.

  7. I was barely into the first paragraph of this article when an uneasy tenseness attacked my senses. Brushing it off, I continued reading. Further into the article I found that the feeling could no longer be brushed off nor ignored. There is a familiar feeling to this scenario. Why? Reading on, it came to me: Fast and Furious! Yes, there is a distinct parallel there: Willing to put American lives in danger in order to push their agenda. Is there no scheme too low-down, despicable, repulsive and vile for this evil mass of mankind (Obama's henchmen) to use in order to gain more power? Even those of us in Chicago-Land are amazed at the depths of this atrocity.

  8. The "underwear bomber" was waived through customs and escorted onto the international flight by some guy in a power suit and dark glasses (Mossad? CIA? DHS?) who would not allow security near the guy. He had no luggage, no passport, paid for a one-way ticket with cash, was dishevelled and unshaven but NOOBOODDY stopped him. Like I said, the government has to manufacture "terrorists" to justify this police state. TSA was never not designed to stop terrorists, it's designed to make civilian travellers feel like Palestinians!

  9. I believe it is not appropriate that the complaints regarding deception in this thread are aimed solely at the current administration. Do you think such deceptions have occurred only in the last three years?

  10. Frank Norton says:

    For some it takes longer to learn. In the third grade I learned about the great lie that governments tell to their citizens/subjects to keep them under control and inorder. When 18 years old I regristered to vote an a nonpartisan and proceeded for the next 58 yearsto vote against political party members, and for independants. I always voted to take away government power and funding, and for increasing the power of the people and support for the U.S. Constitution, and Country. All these years it has has no effect for elections are rigged, and when the people get a law in their favor passed, the courts take it down, or the politicans ignore it. Can it be that I am just a bad person, or is what I was taught about government is true?

  11. This event is horrendous as is the event that happened in North Idaho to Edgar J. Steele, an outspoken First Amendment Attorney who was/is exposing the FedGov and how we are all being criminalized. See his website: http://www.conspiracypenpal.com and the website we have to tell his story http://www.free-edgar-steele.com/ and get the help we need to free him!


  13. DenisaDellinger says:

    I agree Mosquito, this type of cover up has been done for decades by the government for "national security". This is a defective system. If we really knew all the things that have happened and how close we have come to destruction, our heads would spin and we would not be able to sleep at night. I don't know if you are a religious person, but continued prayer for protection would not be a bad idea. I believe all things done in the dark will be shown in the light one day and that those who are responsible for things like this will be held accountable, if not by anyone here on earth but by God in heaven.

  14. Could be. John Brennan – Terrorism Czar
    Anti CIA activist. No training in diplomatic or gov. affairs. Believes Open
    Borders to Mexico and a dialog with terrorists and has suggested Obama
    disband US military .

  15. Do you really believe those poll ratings on Zero? (hoto2rod) They are probably just as bogus as the unemployment numbers.
    This article is very disturbing in that someone like Umar being escorted on to a plane with no passport and ticket paid in cash. While we upstanding American citizens are treated like guilty criminals in order to fly. People have given up liberty for the illusion of security.
    I refuse to fly until there is no more TSA harassment.

  16. That's an easy one, polls can be skewed any way the poller wants by tailoring the questions for the desired result. And we rarely get to see the questions.

  18. The Holder / Napolitano pattern grows stronger with each passing day. Add this to the Fast and Furious, the McVeigh bombing of the Oklahoma Federal Building explosion, the latest sting operation of the Capital Bomber incident (which was a year long investigation!), the knowledge that in each case Holder / Napolitano federal agencies / agents had not only first hand knowledge but a contributing hand in providing the necessary materials that were used and then lost during their sting operations that resulted in the deaths and or injuriies of US. Citizens. The failure of the court systems to fully expose each of these tragedies as the planned doctrines of our Dept of Justice and Homeland Security Agencies is a TRAVESTY of the JUSTICE that has been entrusted to them. Everyone needs to forward this material to their respective Congressmen and Senators as well as their family members, friends, co-workers and associates of any social clubs they belong too.

  19. I was thinking the same thing..

  20. Just another reason to vote Obama and his cronies out of office!!!

  22. PTCRUISERMAN says:

    Stay awake folks! It "WILL NOT" be the last false flag from the current communist administration! I called it then and now I sit here and smile!

  23. Doug Baker says:

    I'm sorry, but the butchered English of this post is too much for me to accept. Take the first paragraph:
    " The statement is limited to the victim’s physical, emotional and financial well being as it relates to the crime. Keep that in my as you read my statement. Below is a copy of the victim impact statement I gave today at the Underwear Bomber sentencing hearing. When reading my statement, keep in mind that I am a practicing attorney in the State of Michigan. In addition, I regularly practice in the Court the hearings are taking place at and therefore, I am somewhat limited as to what I can say. We were limited to 5 minutes each."
    Keeping in mind that this blogger is , supposedly, "a practicing attorney", . . I am disturbed by both the grammatical sloppiness and the assertion that the 5 minute limit was somehow responsible for "what I can say"! A time limit does not equate to content censorship, and the entire sentence: " In addition, I regularly practice in the Court the hearings are taking place at, . . " is evident of a less than capable intellect to pass a bar exam.
    While I harbor great disdain for the administration and for the DOJ in particular (E.H. needs more then fired, . . he needs jailed!) I cannot endorse this blog entry as anywhere near legitimately sourced.
    We cannot be caught citing such unsubstantiated material if we are to expect any recognition for our cause. Unless we police ourselves carefully, we risk dismissal, out-of-hand, by so-called journalists ( whether they are legitimate or not)!

  24. We were warned of this very thing by General and then President Dwight Eisenhower.

  25. Sounds like a rerun of Fast and Furious to me! We have every right to fear our government.

  26. Your are absolutely correct.

  27. A.W. Bowman says:

    I find myself in agreement with Doug Baker on all points. Kurt Haskell says, “… keep in mind that I am a practicing attorney in the State of Michigan. In addition, I regularly practice in the Court the hearings are taking place at and therefore, I am somewhat limited as to what I can say.”

    As Mr. Baker pointed out, the English used in this blog quote would not receive a passing grade from a high school teacher. Yet, considering the current state of our educational system, perhaps it would. /sigh/

  28. A.W. Bowman says:

    Then again, Kurt is Dutch? That would explain the problems with the English language.

  29. Evil, lies, seperation from God all comes from the same shit pot. Wheather a little lie or a big on it is all from the same pot and should be treated as that. (A lie or seperated from God.) That is the sin. The first and the last. Sin is seperation from God and when there "WE" are lost and have chosen HELL for all eternity unless we repent and get back to God.
    Blessings and try to have a good future with out God, in HELL for all eturnity.
    Blessings comes only from the one true God, Jesus Christ.

  30. Affirmative action, in action.

  31. Lobo VNVMC says:

    What do you mean ‘this administration’? Try every administration from Eisenhower on till day, this administration happens to be the worst or the stupidest.

  32. The people on the dole want to stay on the dole. They don't care what happens as long as they get their free s**t. 'edo693' is correct polls can be skewed very easily.


  34. (E.H. needs more then fired, . . he needs jailed!)
    more then fired?
    Look whos talking now.

  35. Darryl Smith says:

    The truth seems to be that the U>S. government is indeed corrupt and has been for some time. On 9/11/2001 the government used the fear instilled in the American people by the WTC tragedy to take away a good deal of the rights which our constitution at that time had guaranteed to us as inalienable. We were afraid. A people who are afraid are easily persuaded to do whatever is necessary to recover a feeling of security, including the surrender of their rights and freedoms. People tend to look at the short term and not at what will be the overall affect of what they are losing at that time. Once a government has taken away those things and have their citizens under control, said government does not wish to lose the control of the people and therefore will do whatever is necessary to keep the people whom they control scared. Therefore a defective bomb is a small price for a government to sacrifice to keep the control which they desire.

  36. Yes I believe them. There is only one reason people vote is for the person that gives them them the most and Obama & crew are professionals at giving away money & other free stuff. Few are the people that vote what is good for the country only. Most for how much they are going to get. It cannot go on forever but most think it will.

  37. So how little effort would it have taken for the 'escorted' terrorist to have added an unknown backup (real) explosive to his plan??

  38. I wish I had some of the stuff you idiots are smoking… You are not patriots, but idiots….

  39. You have us all wrong, we ARE the Patriots, not the mindless delusional Obots with kool-aid stains up their eyebrows.

  40. Grammar is so important when things of this nature are going on, i.e. the government helping someone board a plane with a bomb with no passport. Hmm, I would totally discount this all because the grammar is not 100% (note heavy sarcasm). It's obvious with some people's posts what they value in life. You would rather point out grammar issues, than look the real issues here. SMH.

  41. I think you need to go back much farther. Abraham Lincoln for example. Certainly at least to Wilson.

  42. Gerald Hooper says:

    One of the reasons that justified all the x-ray scanners and pat downs of grandmothers and little children and good ole american boys at the airports was the underwear bomber. Now we find out that he was escorted onto the plane and given a dummy bomb by our own governement. Logical thought process.. We are being inconvenienced to prevent a threat that was created by our own government and not some terrorist regime. WTF The insanity continues and we the people pay the price. We need a congressional investigation into this piece of work.

  43. My thoughts exactly. Set up a phony scenario and use it as an excuse to further abrogate our rights and freedoms. We truly have criminals in control of the machinery of our government.

  44. If you want a more-or-less accurate gauge of how Obama is doing, see the Rassmussen Daily Presidential Tracking Poll at http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/po…. It bounces up and down, but the general trend is downward, as anyone can see. There's been a slight uptrend in the last two weeks, mostly due to Obama's campaign lies, abetted by the Main Street Media. However, as gasoline prices spike upward, leaving less spendable cash in people's pockets, I expect the trend will reverse and will continue to drop. Unless Obama can fool a few million voters again with his lies, his chances of re-election are just about zero at the moment.

  45. We're not talking about mere sins here. This is a matter of HIGH CRIMES against the U.S. Constitution and the people of the United States.

  46. I just hope that a lot of eyes will be opened before the next election, but I know one person that no matter what you tell her, she can not be deterred, and that is to bad, she is one of my best friends. What am I supposed to do?, shoot her, or keep her from the poles at election time? It's to bad that some people can't read between the lines after they read the lines and something sinks in.

  47. Truth Be Told says:

    Yea!!!!! and ET had help from Ronald Reagan you nut cases!!!!,
