The CIA has been patting itself on the back for thwarting a would be terrorist plot since the story broke a few days ago, but what they haven’t told you is that the alleged bomber at the heart of the plot was a CIA double agent. U.S. and Yemeni officials now admit that the bomber at the heart of the plot to blow up a plane was an informant working on behalf of the CIA.
The story, first reported by The Los Angeles Times, is that the double agent was given a bomb by terrorists, but instead of going through with an attack, turned it over to his keepers at the CIA. This, according to the CIA, explains how they were able to get their hands on the bomb well before a plan was set it motion.
It just baffles the brain how this could, for some, pass the smell test. All the other alleged “plotters” are dead of drone attacks by the way. There are no witnesses. There is no good reporting. All we are left with is vapid celebration.
