Are We In A Financial War With Al-Q Now?

I know the prevailing sentiment is that Beck is an alarmist. But this doesn’t come from the fertile little strangely twisted mind of Glenn Beck. It comes from DoD- Pentagon people who follow this stuff.

Government Pentagon Study: ‘08 Financial Crisis May Have Included Work of Finanical Terrorists
Posted on March 1, 2011 at 10:34am by Jonathon M. Seidl

It seems those Pentagon economic “war games” we reported on in December may have been a very good idea.

That’s because it was revealed yesterday that a Pentagon contractor report suggests the U.S. may have been, and may currently be, the victim of financial terrorism. As the Washington Times says, the 2008 economic crisis may have included “financial subversion carried out by unknown parties, such as terrorists or hostile nations … covertly using vulnerabilities in the U.S. financial system.”

The report was authored by financial analyst Kevin D. Freeman in 2009, and is called “Economic Warfare: Risks and Responses.”

So maybe what Beck’s been saying has a ring of truth to it.

  1. Riiiiiiight – it has nothing to do with late capitalism being exploited by an economic elite at the expense of the common good – it must be TEEEERRRORRROORRRRRRORRRRISSSSMMMM!!!!

    Now, cower in your beds in fear like the good little sheep you are. Your masters have things completely under control and will protect you from the Big Bad Ay-rabs – and whatever you do, don’t go looking elsewhere for information…

    Keep baaing…

  2. Gee, let’s see … York’s whole post was in the form of a question.

    And isn’t he just as good at Google, perhaps, as someone we know?

  3. Maybe they consider this to be the best way to mislead the public. I think they should rather reveal more information about the persons responsible for the ineffective regulatory policies and their inability to report them in time to prevent the detrimental consequences of the financial crisis.

    I take his responses like the old “Gong Show” They show, the gong goes off before a word is read, then NEXT. Keep moving, there’s nothing to see here. Guess he didn’t get l……. again as discussed yesterday.

    There are links to follow to get to the Pentagon report. Obviously it was taken serious enough to follow the trail by the Pentagon to see if our enemies had a hand in it. Apparently it’s a three prong attack. One and two are complete. Supposedly what is going on is North Africa may be step 3. Strangely or not this is the first time the MSM has bothered to look into it.

    This was on Beck last night, be he attributed his discussion to what the Pentagon Study said, that took six months, what the Pentagon said. And for our good friend Perry, it’s all linked and documented. Apparently airplanes have minimum value now as a terrorism method one could conclude.

    I guess every Blog has its court jester to mock people, too bad we have this one.

    What the Pentagon did in my opinion is they took a cube and painted three adjacent sides red, flipped it over and painted the three remaining sides yellow. If you place the cube one way you could conclude one way it’s red, the other way it’s yellow and you have two different cubes, but there is still one cube. TSA is still looking in the sky for an answer, the pentagon concluded looking on earth.

  6. Well, since Islamic terrorists attacked the World Trade Center twice, it should be clear they fully intended to target a prominent symbol of US financial interests. Anyone with the brains of a brussels sprout should be able to see that, unless of course they’re more interested in maintaining their pet delusions rather than acknowledging the obvious truth that’s right in front of their noses.

  7. When a system is already stressed, the notion of adding weights in order to break it, is nothing new.

    Deliberately induced supply shocks are a well known part of the technique. Oil Cartels can if they are cohesive enough do it, and speculation will multiply the effect.

    Nor is the idea of individuals or nations working to leverage the vulnerabilities of the financial system of a country against itself, any more unique than is the notion of individuals using the political vulnerabilities or workings of a polity to undermine it.

    This is done all the time. Although not intended as an example of financial warfare,, George Soros demonstrated how vis-a-vis Great Britain a single individual could profit from a manipulation analogous to selling short. He saw the Brits propping the pound up, borrowed sterling, repaid it when it fell, and pocketed the billion in difference.

    The idea of direct financial manipulation has even made its way into movies. For example the Robert Littell [a former Newsweek journalist] novel “The Company” which was in 2007 turned into a television mini series. Those who watched it will recall the climax of the series revolves around an attempt by the KGB to collapse the American financial system using their accumulated reserves of American financial instruments and currency.

    It’s nothing new as a general concept.
