Be Afraid America - DHS Warns ISIS, Al Qaeda Are Planning '9/11-Style' Attack

Tyler Durden's picture

Nothing distracts like fear. And today, former DHS chief Elaine Duke invoked one of the most traumatic episodes in US history to remind complacent Americans that Al Qaeda and ISIS are still out there, plotting deadly terror attacks meant to kill as many American civilians as possible.

With the Islamic State in retreat following the surrender of its de facto capital to US-backed Arab and Kurdish fighters, Duke told reporters that remnants of the group have partnered with a resurgent Al Qaeda to plot a devastating terror attack on the scale of a 9/11 - thus generating a headline seemingly tailor made to make pulses quicken.

“The terrorist organizations, be it ISIS or Al-Qaeda or others, want to have the big explosion like they did on 9/11. They want to take down aircraft, the intelligence is clear on that,” the acting US secretary of homeland security said during a visit to the UK, as cited by British media.


“The threat is still severe,” she stated on Wednesday in London following her meeting with UK Home Secretary Amber Rudd, according to Russia Today.

Duke warned that groups have carried out several relatively small-scale terror attacks (think the attacks that have rocked the UK, France and Belgium over the past year), which suggests the groups could be moving on to more ambitious targets. In the UK alone, the attacks have killed nearly 40 people.

One strategy Duke fears is a 9/11 style plane hijacking, something terrorists have not given up on despite the advances in airport security since 9/11.

“Creating terror is their goal. A bladed weapon attack causes terror and continues to disrupt the world, but that does not mean they have given up on a major aviation plot,” she said.

During her meeting with Judd, Duke parroted the UK conservatives’ push to remove terrorist content from the internet - content that has been effective at recruiting home-grown jihadists in the UK’s Muslim population.

The attacks famously prompted British Prime Minister Theresa May to ask “allied democratic governments” to “regulate cyberspace to prevent the spread of extremism and terrorism planning.”

Duke said that while tech firms have been cooperative, there’s still much progress to be done.

“We will continue to push as far as we can go. I think that we have the cooperation of those companies and we just need to work on that,” she said. Social media firms joining a meeting of G7 interior ministers to discuss the issue this week “is a positive sign,” she said.


“There has been a shift and for us somewhat with the Charlottesville incident,” said Duke, adding that tech companies are under “social pressures” and have “to balance between keeping their user agreements and giving law enforcement what they need.”

Terror attacks have become a regular occurrence in the UK since the rise of ISIS. A bombing in the Manchester Arena last May killed 23 people and injured more than 100 others, making it the deadliest attack of its kind in the UK since 2005. The latest terrorist attack occurred on Sept. 15 at Parsons Green tube station, where a partially-exploded bomb injured 30 commuters.

Just one day before the US security chief’s warnings, Andrew Parker, director general MI5, Britain’s domestic intelligence agency, said that Britain was under unprecedented threat from Islamist terrorists.

If we could only find and kill the Saudi Arabian mastermind, Osama Bin Laden, who is holed up somewhere in Afghanistan, then we could be safe from these types of attacks.

Is that the CIA trained-and-funded branch of ISIS?

They would think that isis wuz pussies.

They were stuck between Comanche and Texicans.

But before the Colt.

Those Osage Orange bows in skilled hands could fire ten times as many accurate bolts as those slow ass muskets.

Just ask the Hispanics that they completely ran out of the southwest before those damn Southerners got there.

Didn't the USG get the memo?

The American people know that ISIS + AlQaeda = Israhell.

After all they got away with 9/11. Why not do Part 2.

So you are one of those that thinks just because the people you surround yourself with, the majority of citizens think as you do.

My guess?

DHS/ISIS/CIA etc. is going to use those anti-aircraft missiles 'lost' overseas to take down airplanes all over the world.

I'm certainly not planning to fly any time soon...

listen to the guy at the beginning of this, he claims the wtc had explosives inside, that the structural steel on the outside would have prevented planes getting into the buildings.  he kind of sounds familiar.

could this be why the zionists don't trust him and prefer pence?

911 1.0 worked magnificently.
911 2.0 will yield results with the same happy ending, yet  with more Patriot "NDAA" Act tyranny.

The September 11th attacks were likely meant as a cover-up for financial crimes being investigated by the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), whose offices in the Pentagon were destroyed on September 11th. The 2+ trillion-dollar shortfall, which was under investigation by a special unit whose members were all killed during the 9/11 attack . They were never replaced; the money was never found; the shortfall was never mentioned againThe missile struck in area under renovation with only 800 working instead of normal 4,500.

"On that fateful day [9/11], the Securities and Exchange Commission declared a national emergency, and for the first time in U.S. history, invoked its emergency powers under Securities Exchange Act Section 12(k) easing regulatory restrictions for clearing and settling security trades for the next 15 days. These changes would allow an estimated $240 billion in covert government securities to be cleared upon maturity without the standard regulatory controls around identification of ownership."

The attacks ... were intended to cover-up the clearing of $240 billion dollars in securities covertly created in September 1991 to fund a covert economic war against the Soviet Union, during which 'unknown' western investors bought up much of the Soviet industry, with a focus on oil and gas.

Consider the order of events:

1. Trump, unlike Killary, de-escalates Syria, cooperates w/ Russia.  Assad can stay.

2.  Israel "urges" Trump to be more active in fight against "terrorism".

3.  No change in Syria policy.

4.  Las Vegas "happens"

5.  Couple weeks goes by.  No change in Syria policy.

6.  DHS Warns..."ISIS, Al Qaeda"...are planning a big attack.

I read somewhere (maybe on the Hedge) that the security contract for the next superbowl changed hands couple of weeks ago.  Guess where the new company is based?  Wouldn't be Israel would it?

They're laying the groundwork for a Superbowl Outrage.

Lot of parallels recently with a book I read a while back.  A worthwhile read.

"Security" provided by an Israeli security company. That is a real good tell to predict where the next major FF will occur.

The organized sports industrial complex provides a mind-numbing distraction for dumb fans with too much money.

More to the point, there must be servicemen and women who will take up arms if they get a whiff of another big false flag in the making.

If the lady is worried about groups like ISIS and Al Qaeda, then it might be a good idea not to fund, train and support them.

Osage-orange trees are native to an area centered on the Arkansas and Red River valleys in southern Oklahoma and northern Texas. They derive their name from the Osage Indians, who used it primarily for making hunting bows and war clubs. The wood is strong and so dense that it will neither rot nor succumb to the attacks of termites or other insects for decades. Dried, it is the next best thing to coal.

During the 19th and early 20th centuries the tree was planted throughout the United States probably more than almost any other tree species in North America. Before the invention of barbed wire in the 1880's, many thousands of miles of hedge were constructed by planting osage-orange trees closely together in a line.

The tallest osage-orange stands at Red Hill, the home of Patrick Henry in Brookneal, Virginia. The 400-year-old specimen has an eighty-five foot span and stands sixty feet high.

Yes i would get osage wood and make my ash glazes with it for high fire kiln firings. I believe it has quite a lot of silica content in it.

wisehiney's picture

Only edible by tree rats.

They leave the trash under you tree.

So few seeds are only edible.

Taste like sunflower if you are sitting around cutting them.

I always dreamed of a roast fucking tree rat with osage seed dressing.

Soon. Yall come on over with the muscadine wine.

Horses and cattle occasionally choked to death of the beautiful worthless fruit.

Good occasions for a barbecue and party, I would think.

"We warned you.  We said 'imminent'.  Not our fault."


Just bear with me a moment here...  WHAT PURPOSE DOES THIS WARNING SERVE, EVEN IF TRUE?  What, exactly, am I supposed to do differently when I wake up tomorrow?  In truth there is NOTHING I can do.  I doubt I'll get lucky and catch a terrorist planting a bomb.  I doubt I will be wherever that terrorist gunman opens fire with my little pea-shooter 9mm carry pistol.  So please tell me what I'm supposed to do.

Be more afraid?  Ummmm.... pass.  I've been afraid enough.  I'm tired of it.


NoDebt's picture

And another thing.... If you fuckos knew something was imminent why in the name of Jezuz would you telegraph that by issuing a warning that would instantly let them know that you knew??

If you got something concrete then go get them.  Otherwise I think I speak for everyone here here when I ask you to just shut the fuck up.

Come on No Dept, you really consider your 9 carry a 'pea shooter'?

Granted it is short range, but my 9 carry has hollow points that will create serious damage within 50 feet to more than peas. Course, I've practiced, but I'll bet you do too.

But I totally agree with the premise - should we be more afraid because some fucktard gobermint employee paid way too much with our tax money sezz so? I don't think so. Just fuck all these asshats paid with my money telling me I should be afraid of anything, other than 'my' own government.
