A political analyst says that the US government agencies are planning another 9/11 style attack, as the administration continues losing control of its citizens.
Press TV has conducted an interview with Gordon Duff, senior of Veterans Today, to further discuss the issue.
The following is a transcription of the interview.
Why does the [Department of Homeland Security] DHS, an agency that has limited need domestically for [dueling arms], feel it necessary to purchase such a massive amount of ammo?
There’s no imaginable reason what-so-ever which is why this has become a serious question. The Department of Homeland Security does not operate a large national police force. They’re only a small advisory force.
As a matter of fact, it’s a controversy of whether they’re illegal or not. There’s much discussion about disbanding them.
And as for police departments across the US, and we have thousands of them, they’re all heavily armed, all have automatic weapons, all have military grade weapons.
The ammunition is of no use against body armor. It is of only use against unarmed civilians.
As it was mentioned, hollow-point ammunition is designed to kill on one shot. 40-caliber is extremely powerful ammunition, much more powerful than our military uses - they only use 9 millimeter. There is no rationale.
In addition, the [National Defense Authorization Act] NDAA and the “Trespass Bill” in terms of protesters who are disrupting occurrences acknowledged by the DHS as being a national security event, and will be charged with a federal crime - a federal crime - to assemble in the US.
Gordon Duff, perhaps these are steps being taken and this purchase is one of many to deal with situations such as these two most recent laws to be passed?
The last speaker [Mr. Tighe Barry] brought up a significant point, that the government is dependent on the mass media for the last 20 to 30 years to control the American people.
The mass media no longer has the audience, the independent media does. We outnumber them 60 to 40 now instead of 90 to 10 percent. The mass media is dying. The government is no longer able to control the population through a series of press releases.
Recent laws that were passed, the NDAA and others, that are blatantly unconstitutional have gone totally unchallenged by any federal judge or prosecutor within the US.
This is something none of us has expected, that both parties would look toward a totalitarian police state, totally agree on it, that no law enforcement official, I mean we have a judicial system that is supposed to be independent yet no one within that judicial system has challenged any of these unconstitutional laws. So, we are very concerned, and apparently all of us here are on the same page.
Gordon Duff, is it a natural outcome of George W’s Patriot Act, this war on terror? I’m sure you’re well aware of the wiretapping of American citizens by the National Security Agency and, of course, violations of civil rights?
The wiretapping laws passed during the Bush administration were overturned.
I actually have on our staff of Veterans Today 30 percent of the members are on “no-fly” terror lists or have been arrested at one time or another, that from a staff of 150.
What I have been learning in rumblings and we’re an intelligence organizations as much as anything else - I’m an intelligence defense contractor - the chatter, the feeling that we have is that these laws are being passed because the government is planning a new 9/11, a new attack of some kind, and they’re preparing a response to something they plan on doing.
There would be no reason for any of this unless there was something in the wind, and the only organizations capable of acts of terrorism against the United States are our own government.
We have found every domestic terror organization in the US, we had a recent trial in Michigan where a judge had learned that an organization they tried to break up as a terrorist organization, the “Hooteries”, were actually run by the FBI. Anytime we have a domestic terror act of some kind, we find an FBI agent is behind it.
A lot of us are very suspicious about the Oklahoma bombings.
We don’t know how many Americans have strong questions about 9/11 but we think the number is very significant.
When they asked Australians, it was 79 percent that doubted the American story there.
So, we don’t trust our own government, and we expect them to do something in some way to stimulate simulated insurrection.
The Trayvon Martin case has gripped the United States. Are there chances of civil unrest breaking out in that respect?
There’s a very high chance. Currently, George Zimmerman is in hiding. He has left the state of Florida. He has no legal representation. No one knows where he is.
There are some interesting questions about this because we investigated his background and according to his records he had attended the Seminole County Police Academy.
When you listen to the audio tapes, it’s like he’s talking to somebody he doesn’t know. We have a lot of interesting questions about this but the most obvious take on this is it was a simple execution slaying.
He was brought in to a police station under arrest. He was released for political reasons.
He has family members that were involved in police and judiciary in the Washington D.C. area. And we smell signs of the hand of government interference in this case.
