Canadian 'Terror Plot' Begins To Unravel
"Just as predicted, the frightening plot to bomb high profile targets in Toronto and the arrest of 17 alleged terror suspects has all the hallmarks of yet another invented nightmare intended to scare western populations into quelling their (dissent against) empire.

From a manufactured scheme to attack the Library Tower in LA to the British government's hoax Canary Wharf and Ricin terror conspiracies - every major alert or mass arrest since 9/11 has proven to be a fraudulent movie script with no basis in reality..."

Canada Terror Plot Grows More Absurd

Bizarre is the only way to explain it. “One member of an alleged al Qaeda-inspired terror ring arrested in Canada last weekend faces the accusation that he sought to behead Prime Minister Stephen Harper,” reports SwissInfo. “According to a synopsis of charges that [Gary] Batasar [suspect Steven Chand’s lawyer] said he saw, members of the group are alleged to have considered plans to take hostages and to attack the Canadian parliament in Ottawa with the aim of trying to force the government to withdraw Canadian troops from Afghanistan.”

RCMP Change Fertilizer Story

Now, instead of securing the purchase of three tons of ammonium nitrate for the alleged Ontario terrorists, the cops in Canada “learned of the alleged purchase and intervened, switching the fertilizer, which can be used to make a bomb… [of the sort] employed in 1995 to blow up the federal building in Oklahoma City,” according to the Toronto Star.

Now that we have rolled over a sizeable speed bump in the Canada terrorism case—the so-called terrorists, actually patsies were the recipients of three tons of fertilizer, courtesy of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, thus revealing they are victims of a sting operation, otherwise known as entrapment—the corporate media is free to turn this absurd and transparent case into a major story with international terrorist dimensions. “A U.S. counterterrorism official,” the Associated Press reports, “speaking on condition of anonymity, said Canada’s government rightfully considered the 17 [patsies] a serious threat because there was evidence the group was far along in planning attacks,” thanks to more than a little help provided by the RCMP.

Not only did the “terrorists” in Canada not have a target for their so-called fertilizer bomb, the fertilizer was delivered by the RCMP as part of a sting operation (i.e., the suspects were framed), according to the Toronto Star. “Sources say investigators who had learned of the group’s alleged plan to build a bomb were controlling the sale and transport of the massive amount of fertilizer, a key component in creating explosives. Once the deal was done, the RCMP-led anti-terrorism task force moved in for the arrests…. At a news conference yesterday morning, the RCMP displayed a sample of ammonium nitrate and a crude cell phone detonator they say was seized in the massive police sweep when the 17 were taken into custody. However, they made no mention of the police force’s involvement in the sale.”

CSIS: Canada Joins the Intel Op Club

On its face, the story of the “al-Qaeda inspired homegrown terrorist group” supposedly caught “plotting to bomb ‘hard’ government targets rather than ’soft’ civilian ones such as shopping malls or nightclubs” in Canada, as characterized by the Calgary Sun, is highly suspect, to say the least. It should be considered suspect because the organization heading up the investigation of “12 adults and five youths, all of whom are charged with participating in or contributing to the activity of a terrorist group, including training and recruitment” is the notorious CSIS, or Canadian Security Intelligence Service (Service Canadien du Renseignement de Sécurité), officially created by an Act of Parliament in 1984.
