A keen Kurt Nimmo points out the propaganda machine is in high gear to convice all that the internet as it exists is a threat to us all. I can’t help but wonder if somehow an ‘attack on all banks’ from a cave in afghanistan will be blamed for the The Dollar’s Full-System Meltdown followed quickly by a ‘direct’ tie to Iran…”
Never Heard of al-CIA-duh Group Threatens Banksters

Once again, an “al-Qaeda” affiliate nobody has ever heard of, and will never hear from again, is threatening damnation and ruin.
“The U.S. government warned American private financial services on Thursday of an al Qaeda call for a cyber attack against online stock trading and banking Web sites beginning on Friday, a source said,” Reuters reports. “The source, a person familiar with the warning, said the Islamic militant group aimed to penetrate and destroy the databases of the U.S. financial sites.”
No doubt this will be accomplished from caves with fiber optic cables or maybe from the high-tech boondocks of South Waziristan.
Of course, this is simply more propaganda designed to convince the bovine masses that the internet poses a threat, as the neocon Newt Gingrich declared the other day, and serious measures will need be taken, that is if we value our safety over our liberty. Never mind what Ben Franklin allegedly said on this subject.
“There is a regular stream of Jihadist exhortations to attack various targets,” said Brian Jenkins, billed as a terrorism expert with the RAND Corporation. “Financial organizations stay at a fairly high level of readiness anyway because of regular assaults.”
In other words, even a military-industrial-intelligence complex shill believes there will be no “al-Qaeda” attack on America.
Even so, the people have to know the internet is a dangerous place, rife with jihadis and Muslim miscreants.
Thus the message is sent once again.
Now please surrender your natural rights at the door.
