NSA Is Offline So Here "They" Come: Multiple Bomb Threats Made Against US Aircraft, NBC Reports

You don't say. Now let's find the NSA agent who dialed them in.

Who could have seen this coming? Just 24 hours after the NSA goes "dark" from "securing" the nation against terrorist threat (by recording and storing all domestic phone calls) we get this:


According to NBC, these threats are against planes already in the sky.

Passengers are being deplaned after a bomb threat hoax in Philadelphia


What turned out to be a hoax led to police searching a US Airways flight and its passengers after it landed at Philadelphia International Airport Tuesday morning.

The airport confirmed there was a police investigation going on around 6:30 a.m. after flight 648 from San Diego landed as scheduled in Philly with 88 passengers and five crew on board.

The aircraft had taken off from California at 10:35 p.m. PDT and landed in Philadelphia on schedule shortly after 6:15 a.m. EDT.

"The TSA Operations Center in Washington, DC had received a phone threat stating that there was an explosive device on the plane," said Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Joe Sullivan. "Out of an abundance of caution" the airport declared a bomb threat and moved the plane to a remote area.

And from NBC:

At least five bomb threats were phoned in Tuesday against flights originating or landing in the United States, government sources told NBC News. The sources said that the threats were not deemed credible.


Four of the five flights — one each from US Airways, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and the Mexican carrier Volaris — landed. The fifth, Korean Air Flight 23 from Seoul to San Francisco, was still in the air, scheduled to land Tuesday afternoon.


In Philadelphia, police met the US Airways plane, Flight 648 from San Diego, when it landed. NBC Philadelphia reported that a police bomb squad, including dogs, searched the plane and passengers and gave the all-clear. 


The three other flights that had landed were Delta Flight 55, from Los Angeles to Atlanta; United Flight 995, from San Francisco to Chicago O'Hare; and Volaris Flight 939, from Portland, Oregon,to Guadalajara, Mexico.


Hoax threats have been made against almost a dozen planes over the past two

US equity markets dropped on the news but judging by how fast stocks rebounded after the original CNBC report it makes one wonder if this was just a trial balloon to see how fast BTFDers BTFD after a terrorism headline. The answer: 5 minutes.


Conclusion: the Fear Department will need to work harder to overcome the natural instinct of an entire generation of BTFDers to inspire a marketwide panic.

TSA failed last month's statistics on cavity searches.

AlaricBalth's picture

Well then. We will just have to have more cavity searches.
More is always better, just ask the Fed.

Certainly tough to prove but this is certainly something I think our government would try to pull off. Call it a conspiracy theory if you want, I call it a rational possibility based on the current environment and historical norms.

Wow, what serendipitous timing.

Did they at least try and *69 them?


Ignatius's picture

Good thinkin', pods.  Then call the number and tell them they won a free color TV and to come pick it up.

May also have something to do with this in the news yesterday;

TSA screeners at airports failed to detect prohibited items 95 percent of the time.

Government must continually remind us why we need them. This is the sole purpose of LameStream Propaganda Outlets.

Everyone should just fly naked. And quit bringing so much fucking carry on.

GeezerGeek's picture

For every one person I might enjoy seeing naked, there are at least a hundred (maybe a thousand) that I would find revolting. Nauseating, even. Can we compromise on spandex?

I recall, vaguely, a science fiction story with a similar suggestion - Heinlein maybe? It was a solution to some sort of parasite that sat on one's back and hooked into the spinal cord to take control of the whole person. Now we've got smartphones that take control of whole persons, but at least it's voluntary.

Id say that the TSA report proves that there is NO ONE in the US who wants to blow up an aircraft, right? Since these fucktards have yet to catch a single terrorist since their creation, and since 67 out of 70 fake terrorists were able to walk right through their checkpoints with bombs, etc, it stands to reason that no one is willing to die to blow up an airplane, since had a competent terrorist actually tried, they would have suceeded over 90% of the time. If this terrorist threat is so dangerous, it would have HAD to have happened at least ONCE right?

At the same time, you have the NSA being forced to admit their massive unconstitutional data collection has failed to foil even a single terrorist plot. Every single plot the govt has 'stopped' was almost entirely of their own creation, and would have gone nowhere beyond some young kid saying "i hate america" without a lot of help and 'guiding' from the FBI and their informants, so much so that in time when rule of law was respected, most of these cases would get tossed out of court as entrapment.

So, what conclusions should we draw from this? that this entire national security state nightmare we are having forced on us is built on a foundation of lies and bullshit propaganda. And it is at BEST just another govt jobs program and money hole, and at worse a noose that is slowly tightening around all of our necks.

pods's picture

I think that it shows that terrriiists are normal people like the rest of us and hate being treated like sub-human cattle.

I mean, if you are gonna die, you really want your last couple of hours to be good ones.  

So, in that case, I guess it worked.

Just like you will never see someone blow up a DMV.  They might be terrrrissts, but they ain't crazy.

There was a bomb threat on the court house of my small city yesterday, didn't think much of it until I saw this article, even though my B.S Meter ran on high when hearing of it...my first thought was why they would waste anytime on my small city, then remembered we have an FBI headquarters...everything became very clear after that

swmnguy's picture

You are 100% correct.  The only "terrorists" they've caught are feebleminded alienated stupid young men, who are befriended in coffeeshops by professional informers, and coaxed, sometimes over years, to say "The Magic Word" on a hidden microphone that justifies a newsworthy arrest and qualifies the informant for his reward.  Then the cases are never heard of again, for the most part.

In their frenzy to create fear among us, they've done the opposite for me.  I'd always thought, even before 9/11/01 when apparently most of America suddenly realized we live in the same actual world as everyone else, that a lot of people would have it in for us.  What I've learned since 9/11/01 is that, despite the best efforts of the National Security State, we really don't have any domestic enemies.

Overseas, of course, it's different.  In the countries we invade and occupy, apparently once in a while somebody takes a shot at one of our troops.  That's what passes for "terrorism" these days.  Interestingly, the latest and greatest threat to humanity, "IS," never does anything that might harm a US soldier, which is interesting and telling.  But sometimes a terrorist kid or shepherd will throw a rock at a drone, and we're supposed to be very, very frightened.

It's ironic that 14 solid years of nonstop fearmongering have done nothing but reassure me as to how safe I am from actual terrorism.

True that.  The real ops are conducted by .gov agents who have a LOT more training.  9/11.  Sandy Hook.  They would never trust these missions to some bumbling coffee-shop turrist.

Seems that "they" are running an extortion and protection racket.

but but but....they have shiny badges and all wear the same blue costumes...its gotta be legit.

I gotta say that the uniforms threw me off the trail for a time, as I think they do for most.

This is it's picture

Who said 'bomb'?

That's a threat.

NoVa's picture

it was never shut off.  It is impossible for a government program to disconnect and "stop" actions within hours - simply impossible.  

What does the public think this is ? - a wall switch?  On/Off, On/Off

Yep, it just goes back into the "illegal" realm.

I doubt the perps make this distinction.  At worst, they figure it'll be covered by Executive Order.

Couldn't be all those now idle NSA analysts calling in threats to secure their jobs, can it?

Does anyone actually believe that this data collection has ended? LOL

"The TSA Operations Center in Washington, DC had received a phone threat ..."

Who would call the 'TSA Ops Center', except for a government agent? Who would have general knowledge that the 'TSA Ops Center' even existed, except for a government agent?

LawsofPhysics's picture

LOL!  This will continue until you take away John McCain's phone!

Chupacabra-322's picture

Absolutely! This strategy was these Psychopaths contingency plan from the beginning. More False Flag terror.

“Once a government resorts to terror against its own population to get what it wants, it must keep using terror against its own population to get what it wants. A government that terrorizes its own people can never stop. If such a government ever lets the fear subside and rational thought return to the populace, that government is finished.”
-Michael Rivero

Fun Facts's picture

If Americons don't wake up to the reality of false flag terror used to manufacture the consent for any depraved political agenda the zio bankster elite desire, we are all absolutely doomed.

Start by waking up to the PNAC New Pearl Harbor used to manufacture the consent for all we endure today.

I should've known someone already thought of this.

What I get for not reading the comments before commenting.

Priority one for any government agency is survival and self-perpetuation.  After all, what difference does it make?

Because even though CONgress may authorize it.  It is still UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!!  Want to take away our 4th amendment protections, pass it properly by amending it you FUCKERS!  Good luck getting everyone to go along with it you corporate Washington whores.

The TSA knows where they want to hold him.  The NSA knows where he wants to be held.

threats shmets - they need a MH17 style false flag.

Blame the Russians and they will get their NSA back and raise the war they are trying for.

Blame ISIS and they will get their NSA back and secure MIC profit for the next 2 decades.

Blame a homegrown nutjob and get their NSA back and fasttrack the martial law they are clamoring for.

too many decisions!
