The Brussels Attacks: Of Patsies and Fascist European Patriot Acts

The three men who are suspected of taking part in the attacks at Belgium's Zaventem Airport.

Two patsies and their handler: Khalid and Brahim El Bakraoui and their handler who “got away”

European stock markets have already rebounded. The US president watched a ball game yesterday yucking it up with Castro.

Seems like these types of false flag events are getting pretty commonplace these days. Nobody is bothering to go through the motions anymore. When all out war with “ISIS™” starting up in the capitol of the EU doesn’t elicit either panic in the markets or even a reaction from the man at the center of the Global War OF Terror, something tells me people in the know are getting tired of playing their roles.

Two days ago the terror attacks in Brussels left the corporate MSM in a tizzy. They were beside themselves covering the story non-stop which continues right up until this morning. Of course, they hardly ever mentioned the PKK offshoot bombing in Istanbul last week carried out by the Kurdish “Freedom Falcons” (“freedom fighters”? sound familiar?)

Turkey is a partner in NATO. I wonder why the complicit corporate press ignored that little story of terror. Draw your own conclusions.

As is usually the case with these all-too frequent events, I like to take a day or so to let the BS sink to the bottom before I write about them. In this case it didn’t take long to discover this official story has all the hallmarks of a false flag event complete with confusing stories, patsies heavily connected to law enforcement officials and a clear and present motive which is in this case, a European version of the USA Patriot Act.

Of Patsies

The two similar looking individuals in that photo from the airport, the ones wearing the one glove on their left hands, turn out to be brothers Khalid and Brahim El Bakraoui who were well known to police and in fact, career petty criminals in Brussels. at least one of the brothers was supposed to be in prison right now, but for some reason, they are at large and running around making bombs.

“They are brothers Khalid and Brahim El Bakraoui, both of whom were known to police, but for organized crime, not for acts of terrorism, state broadcaster RTBF reported.

Khalid El Bakraoui rented an apartment in Brussels that was raided last week and both are suspected of having ties to the Paris attack, the source said.” CNN

“Belgian media reported, and was previously jailed for nine years (in 2010 which means he should still be in prison) after shooting at police during a robbery.

His brother was imprisoned in 2011, a year later, for car-jackings, La Libre reported.” The Independent

Once again we have suspects who are well known to law enforcement involved in one of these events. Suspects who were not known for ties to terrorism but rather to organized crime. And in at least one case, one of those suspects seem to have been released early. As you may or may not know, LEOs often cultivate undercover assets from the criminal underworld by offering them reduced sentences that way they can hold the charges and the prison-time over their heads, making it easier to get them to do what they want.

In this case, it looks to me like the third man in the picture may just be their handler, someone who takes them where they need to go and makes the necessary arrangements regarding whatever project they are assigned to. But that’s just a guess.

The official story with these two guys is pretty weak. It goes something like this:

For no apparent reason these two career petty criminals find Allah and decide to become suicide bombers for “ISIS™” (and then law enforcement lets at least one of them out of prison early?). They make contact somehow with the then at-large mastermind behind the Paris attacks who gives them an “ISIS™” flag and a target. The cops raid their crappy little apartment last Tuesday and there’s a big shoot-out with the fuzz. Oh yeah… the “terrorists” used Ak-47s in that shoot-out. One guy is killed but two others escape, presumably the brothers. Then, a cabbie remembers he drove the brothers and their handler to the airport so he takes LEOs back to an apartment that was  and says that’s where he picked them up. They search the place and find all the evidence they need to prove it was the brothers who acted as suicide bombers at the airport… only… one wasn’t a suicide bomber and he shot himself somewhere in the airport, far away from prying eyes… and oh yeah… they found an AK-47 on him. Oh… and the apartment was rented by one of the brothers.. under a false name.

Okay. Seems pretty straight forward, right?

Fortunately, a taxi driver called police shortly after the photo was released and said he believed that he drove the trio to the airport. ”

That information prompted authorities to raid a residence after the attacks, the officials said.

Investigators found a nail bomb, chemical products and an ISIS flag during a house search in the northeast Brussels neighborhood of Schaerbeek” CNN

“A Kalashnikov, book about Salafism and Isis flag was found alongside a large quantity of ammunition in the flat, which Khalid was suspected of renting under a false identity.” The Independent

Khalid El Bakraoui rented an apartment in Brussels that was raided last week and both are suspected of having ties to the Paris attack, the source said.” CNN

“Belgian media also reported a Kalashnikov assault rifle was found in the departure hall of the Zaventem airport.” CNN

“An alert was put out for the pair following a police raid in the Brussels suburb of Forest last week where two men escaped as a gunman battled with officers before being shot dead.” The Independent

“Both were originally reported to have died in the departures terminal but updated Belgian reports alleged that Brahim killed himself at the airport on the Metro.” The Independent

The third man has supposedly been identified by “intelligence sources” as Najim Laachraoui, an “ISIS™” handler who made the suicide bombs. It’s not explained why his didn’t go off or why the second one used by Brahim went off but did so without that critical “suicide” part.

“The third man seen wheeling heavy bags into the airport, wearing a goatee, spectacles and fishing hat was named by intelligence sources to local media as Najim Laachraoui, 24, a suspected Isil commander who made the suicide bombs used in the Paris outrage in November. ” Telegraph

Laachraoui is supposedly already in “police custody”

“Najim Laachroui, who was only tentatively named this morning, has been arrested in the Belgian capital, according to Belgian newspaper DH.City AM

Yeah, I guess he would be. Can’t have your handler running around in the general public after you put a picture of his face on national TV. They tend to say all sorts of things when they are getting beaten to death by an angry mob.

and European Patriot Acts

Everywhere you look, someone is trying to use these events for their own purposes.

Everyone has an agenda when something like this happens. They are all political and they are all changes expected to take place in the wake of a terrorist event. Kinda like the definition of terrorism, ain’t it?

But the big one, the one that seems to be dominating the airwaves right now is what appears to be a European version of the USA Patriot Act.

Do you remember right after 9/11 when all the talk was about how the attacks could have been avoided, had only the intelligence agencies shared information with one another? Notice anything developing in Europe?

Hell… even Bernie Sanders is getting in on the act saying we need more spying (on the bad guys) and sharing of intel:

“Bernie Sanders tells reporters in Arizona that the attacks in Brussels, Belgium, show the need for “significantly improved surveillance” and the sharing of intelligence with countries around the world.

The Democratic presidential candidate is condemning the attacks in Brussels. He says he strongly disagrees with calls by some Republicans for stepped up domestic surveillance of Muslims in the United States.

He said in Flagstaff, Arizona Tuesday: “That would be unconstitutional – it would be wrong.” News 9

As if going by a script, Hillary Clinton makes the exact same call on CNN:

We have to toughen our surveillance, our interception of communication,” the former secretary of state and Democratic presidential contender said Tuesday in an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer…

In the interview, Clinton called for increased information-sharing between the United States and European countries.” CNN

And right on cue, Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Hartford parroted the developing talking point:

There needs to be much more effective sharing of intelligence and resources among European nations and among our nation,” said Blumenthal.” Fox 61

What they are looking for is a new Patriot Act to be extended to the whole of the European Union and apparently, if they don’t get it right away, there will be more terrorism to come until they do. For those of you with two remaining brain cells to rub together, the fascist USA Patriot Act failed in congress the first time around right after 9/11 so then the “terrorists” sent anthrax to the offices of congressmen who voted against it and some reporters who were publicly skeptical of the fascist bill so the next time around it was passed with flying colors. I guess someone got the message. Funny how those “terrorists” seemed to want us to have a Department of Homeland Security, ain’t it?

US Warns of Possible ‘Near-Term’ Terror Attacks Throughout Europe After Brussels Bombings

“The U.S. State Department has issued a travel warning to Americans for the entirety of Europe in the wake of the terror attacks in Brussels citing the threat of “near-term” attacks throughout the continent.

Terrorist groups continue to plan near-term attacks throughout Europe, targeting sporting events, tourist sites, restaurants, and transportation,” said the alert, which expires on June 20, 2016.

“U.S. citizens should exercise vigilance when in public places or using mass transportation.”

Americans were told to take particular caution “during religious holidays and at large festivals or events,” the alert said.”

A whole month of new terror attacks in Europe. I guess that will get them on board with “freedom”


What conclusion would you draw from all of this? Law enforcement and state intelligence services have two scum-bag brothers ready to patsy-up and in the end, if all goes well, those same law enforcement agencies and intelligence services are enhanced 100-fold in terms of power and equipment via a new European Patriot Act with all the lovely fascist trappings that come with it.

At this point you might expect me to write about Gladio and how the fascists back then were worried about Europe leaning too far to the left so they staged a bunch of terrorist attacks in order to unify the nations via the “fear and loathing” banner.

But you guys are too well informed for me to bother mentioning that. Instead, I will simply leave you with this:

  1. Nice insight Scott. Everyone one of these events is so very obviously staged. Thanks for putting the pieces together.

  2. Reblogged this on deinvestiture.

  3. It is strange that most of the european presidents had their speeches ready after these attacks, like the scoundrel, François Hollande.

  4. Very good, Scott. It’s all pretty obvious what’s going on at this point but your concise analysis is an important part of the record.

    You write, “Suspects who were not known for ties to terrorism but rather to organized crime.”

    Let’s remember that In Italy, the Mafia, the Camorra and other such organisations were an important, useful component of the original Gladio operation.

  5. If it’s on TV, they’re lying.

    If they work for the government, they’re lying.

    If they’re wearing a suit, they’re lying.

  6. Belgian Intelligence Had Precise Warning That Airport Targeted for Bombing | Attack in subway likely also known in advance by Belgian and Western agencies

  7. Just now, I read «Before it’s news», part of a comment that says: «This was done to prevent Britain from leaving the EU…also to be a pretense to invade Syria…and to institute “global” martial law and more travel restrictions in public transportation areas.»
    In order to investigate, we must know if there was a «mock terror drill» going on at the same time. Though, as Joseph Davies says, «Belgian Intelligence Had Precise Warning That Airport Targeted for Bombing»

    I know that this has nothing to do with the Brussels attack, but today I was watching a film by John Carpenter (They live) and while thinking about Françoise Hollande, Benjamin Netanyau, David Cameron and other presidents and prime-ministers, I began to think «Yes, they live…» and the young people of this world should wake up, leave the entertainment (in «iphones», computers…) and take up arms against these reachid people.

  8. Have you seen this yet? Video show a pretty obvious actor:

    • Yeah, the dude walking behind them is a bit obvious but you and the Youtuber seem to be missing another motive: lawsuits.

      Yes, people in situations like this don’t want a camera recording them walking by just fine when they are already seeing dollar signs in their eyes over a big healthy terrorism payday from the airport or the Belgium government or whomever.

      Also, just for the record, after a terrorist bombing (false flag or not) mass transit does not run and yes, some people would be stranded waiting for someone to pick them up.

      Chances are, they would walk to the nearest highway to meet whoever is picking them up because…. the police have shut down the entrances to the airport… can’t have terrorists leaving via a cab or someone else pull up to get their relatives get blown up by a secondary bomb or have a car bomb pull up and finish off the job.

      So dude’s video is pretty lacking in my opinion.

      More than likely there were some crisis actors employed so they could control the narrative via the “witness” statements to the press, but in my opinion, someone set off a couple small bombs on floor level, injuring several people and probably killing a few as well.

  9. Some conspiracy theorists said the Madrid attacks were really not honest attempts to get Spain out of Iraq during the Iraq War but had some other nefarious purpose.
    Spain got out.


    It is very much Bostonian choreography. The difference is, there is no pressure cooker in Brussels, but there is a nails in it.

  11. Is this guy for real?

  12. or this

    Sanity check.

    Maybe something is wrong with me but this photo is totally ridiculous.
    A guy is laying (in pain) and there is passerby like “Sorry I am in hurry to catch my plain.” He is like on the phone. Another guy is busy with a luggage cart!?

    I am not expert in photography but some details lead me to believe this is fake and photoshoped.

    • I’ve seen that photo and it stands out to me as well as a bit odd. Of course, why would they stage it that way? Why would the director tell the businessman to simply walk by the wounded fallen civilian on the ground and act as if he doesn’t notice him? Of course, it does make the image stand out in your head, but for all the wrong reasons. It is strange.

    • Let’s be clear: I believe this is a Gladio event. That means someone on the inside set up some patsies to take the fall for a real bombing. Just like at Boston, the bombs seem to have been packed with small nails and other things that would cause small wounds. And the placement of the bombs, on those carts they were pushing, next to the floor, means the shrapnel would be traveling at leg-level, not abdomen or head-level, which would mean a lot of casualties and few fatalities. Until I see evidence otherwise (and this photo is not it. Could be the man walking by has just walked by 40 others lying on the ground in pain and bleeding and simply can’t do anything about it or is in shock) my belief is, the victims, at least the ones we see with the leg wounds, are real. You’ll notice the guy laying on the ground in that photo has blood all over his pants, suggesting exactly what I just said.

      • Scott, the Boston ‘bomb’ was a three part affair. Two of the ‘bombs’ were what are known in the pyrotechnics trade as ‘sawdust cannons’. Google sawdust cannon and watch the short video. You will recognize the firing signature of the Boston ‘bombs’.

        The third ‘bomb’ was a pressure cooker in a backpack. Underneath the cooker was approx. 2 oz. of 3F black powder. All these devices were initiated by radio-fired squibs. There were also probably squibs on the glass windows of the candy store, as the FX guy couldn’t rely on the ‘bombs’ to break the glass.

        Bottom line? No bombs. It was all FX. They used something called White Smoke Mix as the fuel for the sawdust cannons because they wanted a dense cloud of smoke as cover for the actors. No bombs, no fragments, no injuries. All Hollywood, all the way. Stu Segall was the uncredited FX guy.

  13. This seems a good article about the current situation:

    A massacre in the south of Turquey is happening and Europe does not seem to care.
