With the 10 year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks nearly upon us, one cannot help but wonder if ‘something’ might be planned for this significant date. According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, Osama bin Laden was working to assemble a team of militants to attack the U.S. on the 10th anniversary of 9/11, according to communications Navy SEALs seized from his Pakistani hideout when they killed the al Qaeda leader this spring.
“In the days following the bin Laden raid, officials said the materials seized from the compound showed enthusiasm for carrying out attacks on dates of symbolic significance…”
In an article titled, “10 Year Anniversary Terrorist Attack on US Infrastructure?“, it was revealed that a Department of Homeland Security former chief of staff told ABC News “The only way you can actually kill the large scale number of Americans that [bin Laden] literally was calculating was through the use of this critical infrastructure”… more specifically, that “violent extremists have, in fact, obtained insider positions,” and that “outsiders have attempted to solicit utility-sector employees” for damaging physical and cyber attacks.
There is little doubt that any terrorist ‘organization’ will wish to out-do itself during a subsequent attack, to rival that of the first. Given the extent of the original 9/11 attacks during 2001 and the repercussions that followed, a 10-year anniversary attack could hold the potential to be truly devastating.
What could be the motivating factors behind another terrorist attack?
The obvious anniversary date.
Osama bin Laden’s declaration of a holy war against the United States, and a fatwā signed by bin Laden and others calling for the killing of American civilians. Sure, he’s dead now, but there are others. I wonder what happened to this guy… Egyptian Saif al-Adel, reportedly now acting leader of al Qaeda, “ex-militant says”, as reported back in May of this year.
According to Wikipedia, In various pronouncements before and after the 9/11 attacks, al Qaeda explicitly cited three motives: the presence of U.S. troops in Saudi Arabia, U.S. support of Israel, and sanctions against Iraq.
Bin Laden interpreted the Prophet Muhammad as banning the “permanent presence of infidels in Arabia”
There are those who suspect or believe that 9/11 was an inside job. Without going into the various underlying reasoning for this suspicion or belief, suffice it to say that there is certainly adequate ‘ammo’ to convince that niche of this upcoming 9/11 anniversary to be of such timing as ‘the perfect storm’, given the horrible condition of the world’s financial systems right now. A ‘distraction’ would be most convenient.
So, despite what camp you’re in, conspiracy or not, any wise or thinking person may wish to shore up the preparedness supplies prior to that significant date. It can’t hurt to be prepared…
