The MH17 Crash, Coming into Focus, Hebdo and much more (2015)

VT is a clearinghouse for intelligence leaks from a number of countries, the US certainly but two dozen others as well. We are thankful that there are so many out there who get us the truth and more thankful that they represent factions of those who still value honor and decency and are seldom “lone wolf” whistleblowers, driven by scarred psyches and bizarre personal agendas.

That being said, I continue here down a very slippery slope but not alone, backed by my friends in the US, Russia, and around the world. If there is a reason for hope, and on many days finding the reason for hope is almost impossible, this may well be it. It is for me, certainly.

We are addressing the attack on Russia, which is what we are terming the downing of a civilian airliner. It was a personal attack on President Putin, by my estimation, and we will get to this and those responsible but first, we will address “Charlie” Hebdo after their “cartoon attack” tied to the crash.

The January 7, 2015 “attack” on “Charlie” was not what it seemed. VT, with its extensive Paris-based news organization, was able to track down several leads while VT editor Kevin Barrett penned the “medium best seller, “We are NOT Charlie, Free Thinkers Question the French 9/11.”

“Charlie” was as much a test of international levels of ignorance as anything else.

In order to confirm or debunk any incident, it is only necessary to attack the weakest link. With the “Charlie” shootings, we had a high-quality video of two terrorists supposedly killing a French police officer with assault rifles.

Doing a frame-by-frame analysis and ballistic tests, which included blood spatter analysis, we conclusively proved that the video showed terrorists firing blanks and that this one episode was staged by actors.

I did the impact analysis myself and, while doing comparisons, where the French scene had powerful and highly penetrating assault rifle cartridges blowing puffs of dust when reenacted with real bullets baseball-sized pieces of concrete blew out of the pavement.

The video showed nothing of the kind, quite the opposite, a childishly staged piece of street theatre “on the cheap.”

We don’t even want to begin talking about what happens when you shoot someone in the head while they are laying on a sidewalk. John Kennedy’s head was supposedly “exploded” by a single low-power 6.5mm rifle cartridge. The 7.62mm from an AK47 combined with a powerful muzzle blast from inches away totally obliterates a human head, much less as in the “Charlie” staged video which was both blood and injury-free.

There were also no appropriate muzzle blasts or recoil and muzzle rise. The blanks had to have been loaded with almost no powder at all, in weapons with barrels heavily crimped to protect the actors and provide backpressure to allow auto-reloading. We tested that too.

My own estimation is that a movie “prop department” was used.

In real-world analysis; blood and brains would be stuck to everything within 15 feet with a high likelihood that pieces of the skull would, on their own, have wounded or killed the imaginary terrorists.

The staged obscenity that brought Netanyahu to Paris to shove his way to the front of a funeral cortege was just another political game, like so many.

I am not an “activist” with an agenda. I simply use forensic training to critique the childish exercises of intelligence agencies who stage such events for a controlled press.

Thus, when “Charlie” tries to anger and humiliate the Russian people by publishing its current “usual obscenity,” more an insult to the fine French people than anything else, we ask why.

Now we look at the downing of the Russian plane in Egypt that was blamed on ISIS planting a bomb on it somehow and blowing up over the Sinai desert.

VT personnel know the Sinai well. VT editor Jeff Smith was there with the UN for some years and has furnished us with his personal photo album of tents, sand and helicopter rides. The first thing VT did was look at the video supplied by those claiming to be ISIS.

Backtracking the position using analytical tools,, we quickly found an abandoned Wadi on the flight path which tracked back to a single road, straight to an Egyptian port with a ferry to Jordan.

We also found the placement of the video team as conclusive evidence that the explosive device as controlled by far more than a simple timer. It was likely triggered through satellite communications. Who can do that?

We also found that the video equipment was relatively sophisticated but the video was downgraded to appear as done by an Apple mobile phone. Who does that as well?

We were told that Saudi and Egyptian intelligence used two teams, one planting the bomb at Sharm al-sheik while the other, further north, infiltrated Sinai from Jordan and did the video pretending to be “ISIS.”

Some of this story was verified when we examined the best evidence, the Al Jazeera story, a fabrication about an imaginary radio call and planned to land in Cairo. Jeff Smith pointed out that there is a UN airfield with sufficient runway for an A321, known to all pilots, very close by in Sinai.

Al Jazeera claimed to have an Egyptian source for their story, which later proved to have been fabricated. There was no source. We concluded that Al Jazeera was part and parcel of the staged terror act, a hypothesis based on our long experience with that organization and its relationship to Qatari and Saudi intelligence services.

Al Jazeera is an intelligence front, continually planting “seeded material” created by intelligence agencies the same way Wikileaks does, as was pointed out in December 2010 in an interview on National Public Radio with Zbigniew Brzezinski.

To create context, I will run the clock back to 9/11. Though most find discussions of this event tiresome, we will put our minds to rest. We will take a very short look at one incident on that day, as we did with “Charlie” and make our case.

At that time, the most famous journalist in the world was Dan Rather, evening anchor on CBS News, inheritor to the “throne” as it were, of Walter Kronkite. On 9/11, Rather reported that a moving van filled with explosives was stopped by New Jersey State Police on the George Washington Bridge. There, two individuals were arrested, found to be “Israeli art students,” who were heavily armed. Quoting Rather, “the van contained enough explosives to bring down the bridge.”

Two other such vans were stopped in Manhattan and other arrests were made as well but were not reported on national television. All those arrested were Israeli, with over 200 Israelis arrested tied to 9/11 according to high level sources.

CNN carried the same report as CBS and Rather, which has been removed from YouTube many times but still exists, republished on VT last week. Rather, today has no memory of making the broadcast.

We also have surveillance logs showing these same “art students” meeting in Fort Lee, New Jersey, near the bridge, with a Saudi intelligence officer named Mohammed Atta, cited as the mastermind of 9/11. We end our vignette here, assume what you will.

“Art students” were also arrested recovering radio jamming equipment placed on high-rise residential buildings in Fort Lee, New Jersey. We only mention this to show the scope of events of this kind and to what degree denial, deception and deceit can influence events.

Now we address what we have been told about the crash. Our initial assumption was that Saudi Arabia with or without their supposedly “newfound friends,” the Israelis had done this to humiliate Russia and push President Putin into an act of reprisal that would bring the US and Russia to war.

Using only sources from intelligence agencies, we were then informed that Russia was under the assumption that Saudi intelligence and their paid operatives within Egyptian intelligence were responsible.

It’s been stated that: “Half the Egyptians work for Israel, the other half for Saudi Arabia anyway, Egypt has no security services, only paid foreign spies.”

Where does this leave us? If Putin openly attacks the obvious culprits, the Saudis, as if it was ISIS, everyone will assume Saudi Arabia directed them. Then, of course, there is no evidence that ISIS can penetrate airport security.

Usually such things are done by Israel, as Israeli companies tied to the Mossad work in almost every airport and Israel produces phony passports for assassins the way a potato factory turns out crisps.

If Russia fails to act openly, the Russian people will feel weakened and humiliated. If Russia acts openly, Putin will have allowed himself to be maneuvered.

This is why this was done, always a “plan within a plan” as with “Charlie” or “9/11,” game theory using press assets and the childish narrative that only the most ignorant of the public and the political puppets who pretend to be world leaders openly accept.

  1. OCT 18:
    I was in taxicab two days ago in Minsk Belarus.
    I cant speak Russian but my wife likes to with drivers, I ask after what did he say? As taxi drivers always knoe whats going on in Belarus.
    This driver was from Ukraine.
    I said “Kiev?” “Fascista?” (a little bit rude coming from an American idiot but I could tell he was not a nazi fuck – as they just dont have them in Minsk Belarus…Belarus more Russian than Russia is how I like to describe it here as)
    He said Nyet, “Donetsk!”
    Next day we got the same driver again (yesterday)
    Now I asked him about MH17 being shot down by a missle.
    He said he was there, and he saw it! (wow)
    He said Nyet, there was no missle. A Ukrainian jet shot it down.
    I said you didnt see a missle??
    He said there was no missle. A Ukrainian jet shot it down.
    I told him in America they said in all the news and magazines “Putin did it”
    He said that was a lie, and regardless he doesnt really like Putin that much, nor Trump or Biden or president of Belarus either for that matter.
    He was freaked out from the 285 bodies that fell from sky, he really didnt want to talk much more about it.
    There is popular Russian phrase that sounds something like NAHOOEE which means “on my dick”
    So this word put after of all the current world leaders name when describing them.
    I asked him did you come to Belarus because the Ukrainian Nazis stormed your village?
    He said yes.
    I said you know the USA paid all the fascistas to do that.
    He said I know

  2. Downing of Russian passenger jet over Sinai was vengeance attack plus warning for Russia overstepping it’s “role” in Syria.

    What brought it about was Putin deciding to blast the shit out of the hundreds/thousands of ISIS oil tanker trucks driving into Turkey selling oil stolen from Syria, after the US did nothing but pretend to be fighting ISIS from the air.

    Warning was:
    f Putin wants to get serious in destroying ISIS in Syria,. then he needs to know just how far he can go with that, before more 9/11 style events will be “staged” against Russia.
    So they downed Russian airliner over Sinai, and at first it announced to be an ISIS missle from ground but then turns out it was actually bomb triggered by satellite on board seems to be jist of it.
    Russia would know instantly if missle or bomb so there is the warning.
    Nothing about MH17 in article! Misprint in title?
