Nigerian terrorist helps introducing Patriot Act 3.0 - Madsen

Media reports in the US claim Washington knew about the attempt to blow up an American airliner on Christmas Day.

The 23-year-old Nigerian, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who had passed through security at Lagos and Amsterdam, had concealed explosives and was being watched by intelligence services in several countries.

It was even reported that CIA officials had prepared a report about the suspect after his father had gone to the American embassy in Nigeria to share his concerns about his son’s intentions.

Despite the embassy sending a cable to the State Department and the National Counter-Terrorism Center run by the director of the national intelligence, nothing was done to stop the young terrorist, claims RT contributor and investigative journalist Wayne Madsen

“He [Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab] did not go from the tied terrorist database which contains half a million names to the ‘No Fly’ list,” said Madsen, “I think it is a little bit more than somebody just dropping the ball – this was not supposed to happen, of course, after 9/11 and the fixes to the US intelligence community.”

The journalist believes it has been a classic ‘false flag’ operation.

“I think not only they did not take the threat seriously, they ignored the threat on purpose,” blamed Madsen. “Another terror attack, huge problems for travel now, people now have to submit to millimeter wave scanners which would look under your clothing providing an image of basically what is a naked body – this is what has been pushed to – this is basically Patriot Act Plus or a Patriot Act 3.0, if you will.”
