Revealed: How American Agents Plotted Abdulmutallab’s Failed Attack!

Though Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab has been sentenced to life imprisonment for the failed plot to blow up a Delta Airlines aircraft flying from Amsterdam to Detroit on Christmas Day in 2009, the case has generated more questions than answers. The many questions generated all point in the direction that American agents knew about the plot to blow up the Delta flight 253 and deliberately allowed Abdulmutallab on it. The questions also point in the direction of a conspiracy theory with an indication that Abdulmutallab might have been nothing more than a pawn in a political game.

Abdulmutallab’s father, a famous banker who owns Nigeria’s first Islamic bank had alerted American and British authorities about his son’s new found radicalism. Street Journal also gathered that he was thereafter denied entry into England where he schooled. It was however surprising that the United States decided to issue him a visa despite the country’s anti-terror stand.

In a victim impact statement made in the open court by Kurt Haskell, a Michigan lawyer who also happened to be an eyewitness, it was disclosed that Abdulmutallab did the seemingly impossible as he boarded the flight without a passport!  Haskell told the court that “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.”

And after the failed attempt to detonate the explosive, the plane touched down in Detroit, Haskell and almost every other person on the plane found it rather surprising that the plane taxied up to the gate. The passengers also found it shocking they 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 passenger safety and did not check for accomplices or other explosive devices. Several passengers trampled through parts of the bomb as they exited the plane.

Abdulmutallab’s statement that there was another bomb on board was ignored by the officers who took him away. “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. 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”. Haskell stated.

Meanwhile, in the article cited by the Detroit lawyer, Dutch police admitted that Abdulmutallab did not show his passport in Amsterdam, an indication that he did not go through security at the airport in Amsterdam.

Further credence was lent to the fact that Abdulmutallab was a pawn when Patrick Kennedy of the State Department admitted during a Congress hearing that Abdulmutallab was a known terrorist, was being followed, and the U.S. allowed him into the U.S. so that it could catch his accomplices.

Haskell further stated in his testimony that he was “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”

Another damning revelation in Haskell’s statement was the fact that in late 2010, the FBI admitted that it gave out intentionally defective bombs to the Portland Christmas Tree Bomber, the Wrigley Field Bomber and several others. The victim also stated further that “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 (Abdulmutallab) 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”.
In other words, Mr. Chambers’ comments could indicate that the explosive device carried by Abdulmutallab was from the FBI and not from the Al-Qaeda Group.

A twist occurred that changed the course of the trial not so long after. At the hearing on January 28, the prosecution requested 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”. That singular action went a long way in preventing the whole truth about the Abdulmutallab case from coming to the fore.

Abdulmutallab had also listed Haskell as his only witness. The witness however could not testify again as Abdulmutallab suddenly entered a guilty plea five days after listing the Michigan lawyer who saw it from Amsterdam as his only witness.

It has already been alleged in some quarters that Abdulmutallab was “used” in the bid to effect some policy changes in the US. The reason is not far fetched; minimal efforts have been made to reveal the identity of the man who allowed Abdulmutallab to pass without security check. Also the reason behind the intentional allowance of terrorists into the US has not been stated. Moreover, the fact that the officers neither searched for more explosives, nor checked for accomplices was an indication that they were aware there was none despite claims by the apprehended “terrorist” there were more bombs in the aircraft. When Patrick Kennedy was asked questions as to how the Nigerian was issued American visa despite being a known terrorist, how he passed through without being checked, he said “I can’t tell you that publicly. I’ll tell you in private”

Kosalabaro: I am worried, very worried for Buhari and Oshibajo.

Okebadan: it's normal for an headless drunkards to be having headache because of increase in the price of the head cap in the market.

Kosalabaro: Meaning?. Some people
don't know when to close the tap of their highly infected mouth . Is it because of what I just said , you now take me to the cleaner?.

Okebadan : Ok, sorry, explain yourself because I don’t understand why some small Nigerian like you has to worry for the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Kosalabaro: I'm worried about the new appointment made by Mr President. Majority of it are from one section of the country.
To me this is sickening. The level of stupidity of some of our educated guys from the south is quite alarming. They are the ones justifying this anomaly called competency of the North over the south in the selection of people to public offices. May God deliver them from their stupidity...Amen

Okebadan: Calm down brother, Nigerians are people who fall out of love easily . Is this not the same you screaming blue murder and ‘Change everywhere’ when I muted war against the idea of tribal leaders? I thought you said the President would have changed by May 29? See, there is no way Northerners will remain in love with Buhari if they can’t find their way back to their rightful position of majority in Civil service and I have a strong feeling that both the young and the elites in the North will still be dragging this who-gets --what till May 29 2019 and that means employments and Federal government jobs will remain a scarce commodity to you guys in the South. So if you like you can pull your angry nails from Buhari's neck and sink them into Bola Tinubu's back. It is the spirit of ‘change’. Things have changed.

Kosalabaro: Are you trying to tell me that it's the boil inside my nose and I must learn how to live with it. So what concern this appointment with Federal civil service or you are trying to use alabukun as love charm.

Okebadan: Here we go again. Knowledge, information and exposure is very important. When you left University in the South , your next line of thinking is to go to Europe and America. You don't know that what you are looking for in "sokoto is inside your sokoto. ". There is enough job in Nigeria that can go round among his citizens. In a country where tribalism is one of the major problem confronting us. The head of Parastatals will employ their own people first before considering the people from other region. Any ministry you have a southerners , Easterners or Notherners as the head, check the number of people working under him. I learnt of an MD , a Pastor in FERMA who employs nearly all his church members . There are some parastatals that majority of the people working there are from particular section of the country. Example, Majority of the people in EFCC are from the North especially Adamawa where their First Chairman come from. . To prevent this malady, that's why the government introduce Federal character to accommodate minority groups. And to be honest with you?. How many Northerners did you see in Europe or America struglling like you. When there is ready made available job in Nigeria, you don't need to go to Europe and wash plate now.

Kosalabaro: Hummmm: I'm just scratching my head like a man with itching bottom. But firstly, we Sotherners are like children such that when we are encouraged in this line, we most times overdo and become unmanageable. You are just open my eyes and I promise to think twice in 2019. When you see a Volksvergin beetle car, you will see that it has a bulging light, you will wonder why this until when you open its back and see fire in it. You are an encyclophidia of knowledge.

Okebadan: Stay calm my brother, to learn from other people experience is not admission to failure rather it's addition of knowledge. We are here to educate each other. No one has monopoly of knowledge. I know very sure Buhari will not steal one kobo from your money, he will try to prevent stealing but he loves his religion and tribe more than any other things. He can never be fair in this two area and he is human, no one is perfect all what we need to do is to learn how to live with it.

Kosalabaro:It’s the truth, like it or not. It is easier for a wife to call a man who provides money for food at home ‘daddy’ or ‘my lord’ than the one his wife has to give subsidy. Every wife loves a cheerful giver, in and out of bed. Too many men these days are too busy doing so many things that they do not notice how dissatisfied and unhappy their wives are. They just move from day to day believing their marriages are perfect just because they are good in bed and are picking the right bills. Great. There’s more to being a husband than just paying the bride price and buying a designer wedding gown. It even goes beyond performing your conjugal duties. Every woman loves a man who leaves her ‘finished’ in bed.

Okebadan : What is the meaning of this early morning sermon, are you an angry bride, or a frustrated groom and then end up in unhappy marriage. ?

Kosalabaro: I'm just expressing my view about your message yesterday as a good citizen of my country. And reacting to your post on single mother is in good direction .

Okebadan : Hummmm. Where I advise people to "Stop discriminating against single mothers, their wives is another man's ex girlfriend. I don't think any mother aims to be a single mom." When a woman walks out of a 10 year old marriage, don’t box her into a stereotype corner and dragged her to Golgotha and nail her to a cross.

Kosalabaro: That's a fantastic write up. You made my day yesterday. Many people don't take a good look at their wives :beneath the designer make up, layers and layers of founda­tion and powder there are internal suffering and agony. Many women have uncommon talent to bottle things up which is why they have enough space on their inside to carry as many as 2 to 4 babies at a time . When she eventually flips her lid, it’s because she’s been logging her pain around for so long. You do not know how long she had been in pain and tried and tried for this not to happen.

Okebadan: The same thing with men. Some wives are in the habit of comparing their marriage. The problems your friend is facing in her marriage are different from yours. That woman you envy may have one big messy marriage and probably wishes she was in your shoes. Many wives can’t even remember the good, old times when they felt on top of the world and believed their husband was the best thing that ever happened to them. They are quick to compare their marriage without thinking that every marriage has a foundation. Some are based on rituals, some on money, some on spiritual binding. And many on naivety. When trouble looms or befalls a marriage or the woman is feeling gloomy, the next practical thing she begins to do is wishing she were somewhere else, some­body else’s wife. They wonders how they ended up where they are . Didn’t their mother warn them? And they almost didn’t marry their husband. They will now realise that their man is not the best and warning their children not to fall into the same trap. Forgotten that there is no perfect husband or wife. Every marriage has a cross, you carry your own cross and I carry my own. If you think your own cross is too big , drop it and go inside to test the remaining cross on ground .You will have cause to thank your star. When things get tough in the home and a marriage seems to be having trouble, the tendency to com­pare our situation unfavourably with another’s is quite high. Any married couple who wants to be honest with themselves will own up, to having fallen into that temptation once or twice.

Kosalabaro: The bottom line is to make God the Alpha and Omega of our marriage. This technicalities you are proven above is easier said than done. Many teachers of marriage but few practice what they teach. See you on Sunday.
