Video Footage Of Suspected Israel Bus Suicide Bomber Who Is Caucasian And Had Fake Michigan License

Tyler Durden's picture


The smoke from the exploded bus carrying Israeli tourists was still billowing and yet Israeli PM Netanyahu had already declared that "Iran is responsible for the terror attack in Bulgaria, we will have a strong response against Iranian terror." Perhaps that statement was a little premature: as footage released by Bulgarian police indicates, the suspected suicide bomber is Caucasian, and was in possession of a Michigan driver's license, supposedly a fake one, but why anyone in Bulgaria would be carrying a fake Michigan ID is just a little confusing.

From Haaretz:

A top Bulgarian official said it was a "mistake" to lay the responsibility of a terror attack on an Israeli tourist bus on any specific countries or organizations, on Thursday, as security camera footage revealed the person authorities suspected of perpetrating the suicide attack.


Earlier Thursday, Israeli and Bulgarian stated that the Wednesday attack on the bus in the coastal city of Burgas, killing seven and wounding dozens, was a suicide bombing.


The Bulgarian police said that footage from airport security cameras captured the suspect roaming the airport for at least one hour, the Bulgarian news agency Novinite reported. According to the report he was a long-haired Caucasian in sportswear.


The body suspected as belonging to the terrorist had a U.S. driver's license issued in Michigan – apparently fake.


Following the attack on Wednesday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Iran is responsible for the terror attack, saying that all the evidence in Israel's possession points to Iran as the responsible party.


"In the past months we saw Iranian attempts to attack Israelis in Thailand, India, Kenya, and Cyprus," Netanyahu said. "Exactly 18 years after the attack on a Jewish community center in Argentina, the Iranian terror continues to hurt innocent people."


"This is an Iranian terror offensive that is spreading throughout the world," he said, warning that Israel will issue a "strong response against Iranian terror."


However, speaking on Thursday, Bulgarian Foreign Minister Nikolay Mladenov said that he thought "it is wrong and a mistake to point fingers at this stage of the investigation at any country or organization."


"We are only in the beginning of the investigation and it is wrong to jump to conclusions," he added, saying that Bulgaria had "excellent cooperation with the Israeli security forces in matters pertaining to the investigation."

And this is the clip that was released showing the alleged bomber:

"It's Iran's fault" is the Rothschild Zionist Israel's version of "It's Bush's fault."

We need to run them off the planet. Run them out of Israel and they will set up a colony elsewhere to terrorize the world. Setting off bombs and blaming someone else is their favorite trick. That's how Israel was created. Everytime they wanted to take more land, they'd lob some missiles into Israel or blow up one of their own buses. That would create the "reason" for taking more land. They've done it so often, you'd think people would catch on. They helped blow up the World Trade Center Building with friends in the CIA and MI6 so as to recreate their Khazar empire.

Bulgaria is absolutely not a shithole at all.  People there are shocked and horrified by this.  I wince to think what additional police state measures the Govts will take there as a result.  The US shadow military presence here is huge.

Looks awfully relaxed for a guy about to blow himself up. Frankly he appears more likely to fire up a bong than blow up a bus.

Makes you wonder if the guy knew what he was carrying in his backpack.

That was my first thought too...someone check that his kids weren't kidnapped or something...very strange and makes you think the CIA, Israeli intelligence and 3 other groups manufactured something here, anyway you look at it, Israel, Syria and Iran is getting dicey with Egypt pretty messy on the other side and now Saudi Arabia and Turkey probably providing arms to rebels...

The news story says "Bulgarian authorities believe that the suspect was carrying the bomb in a backpack, which he placed in the luggage compartment underneath the bus, Tsvetanov said. The bus was scheduled to carry about 47 passengers to a resort."  

The guy sets the timer, puts the bag in the luggage compartment, goes the bathroom, pulls the wig, changes clothes, walks away...whats to be nervous about?

For those upset that Israel is even being pointed at, don't forget the assassination in Dubai.  It's too early to point fingers anywhere but that didn't seem to prevent Israel from accusing Iran within minutes of the bombing.,8599,1970586,00.html

Think about what the "bomber" did with his backpack. When have you ever gone on any mode of transport and witnessed anyone giving up their backpack? It never goes into the cargo area, it always stays with the backpack owner. Sometimes it goes in the above storage area on a plane but never into the main cargo area.

The article said that the bomber put the backpack under the bus in the luggage compartment. Why would anyone do this? This is not normal activity.

That one action should have been a big red flag. If the bomber threw his golf clubs under the bus well sure but his backpack come on now.

This is not rocket science.

The luggage compartment is located in the bottom portion of the bus, not actually under the bus. It is like a trunk.  There's a hatch the driver opens, and then you hand your bag to him and he loads the luggage so it all fits.

The seats are located above the luggage compartment.  Anyone taking the bus to go from one city to another knows this.

lolwut? Using the backpack storage compartment for its intended use is anormal activity? You have no idea what you're talking about. I have been travelling for 2 years and anywhere from 75-90% of people will put their backpack there.

Next you'll be telling us, "You're human, that makes you suspect of being a terrorist. Please proceed to the groping line!"

And who can prove the bomb was even IN the backpack?  For all we know, it could have been pre-attached to the bottom of the bus!

Explosion analysis is quite good. Preliminary examination will show if metal in the bottom of the cargo compartment was deflected up or down.

All of this is easy to explain. First, all of the fake Arizona licenses were out of stock, so that's why he had to go with the Michigan one.  Second, whenever Netanyahu's eggs are underdone he screams at the top of his lungs, "Bastard Iranians did it to me again!!! Ok, call the Jews in America to cowardly to live in Israel and hit them up for money, tell them 'mini-me' Ahmedinejad has claimed the Palestine portion of my sunnyside eggs again and I need money so our immature IDF soldiers can kill their farm sheep and shoot bullets at children's feet asking for water."

This guy is not the bomber. There are a list of characteristics used to distinguish suicide bombers before the fact and he doesn't exhibit any of the few that can be seen at this distance. He isn't chanting to Allah, walking like a robot or such. Look at him and ask yourself does he look like someone who knows he is going to die in a few minutes, blown to shreds? My BS alarm is screaming loud on this bus bombing incident. The only way this guy blew up the bus is if he didn't know what was in the backpack. We're being lied to and they know they're lying, grab your wallet.

It's neuroscience not rocket science. Every human being is an expert if we can get past the strong conditioning to believe what we are told. If you ask a bunch of people at a department store who the 'creepy guy' is they'll all point to the same guy. They won't know if he's a pedophile, a shoplifter or the undercover security guy but they will know he's 'off'. Our brains process all this info subconciously and we know things even when we can't say why. I can recognize my daughter from across the mall by seeing her walk for just a second although I can't tell you what is unique about her walk. I just see it. Take away the backpack and there is nothing in this viodeo that say 'bomber'. He looks like someone trying to find his aunt Sophie, not someone with 50 kilos of C4 strapped to his back. You'd have to be a trained actor to suppress all the stress signals from knowing you were minutes away from death and it's hard to hire an actor for this gig.

There is no way you can guess whether that guy is the bomber or not. However you are right about the stress being nearly impossible to supress - that is, if it actually IS there.

I mean, tell that to a buddhist monk (not a fakir, mind you, a monk) who in a pure state of consciousness, with his awareness sharper and clearer than you can probably even conceive, drenches himself in gasoline and sets himself on fire, mindfully watching and feeling himself burn while remaining more peaceful than you could ever be even if you went to a monthlong massotherapy session in a nordic spa.

Not everyone functions following the lines of your limited internal psychological model. Yes, your brain processes the info subconsciously as you say, but only according to your own model or to a second-guessed alternative model which you have observed at times either in yourself or in others. Obviously your brain will fail to correctly interpret the behaviour of somebody acting according to an unknown model - and will not even be aware of it. You say you just "see it" which might be true most of the time when operating within the confines of a well-known, local cultural referential, but it does not apply to everybody and even less when you're looking to somebody whose culture and background is unknown.

Moreover, fear of death is a strongly biased psychological factor for you to base your analysis on, since it is predominently a feature of occidental thought. Many people, when convinced that something is the right and necessary thing to do, will face it with composure - maybe with regret or wistfulness, but not with the stress that you think the person would be subjected to only because the only thing YOU would think about in such a situation is "shit i'm gonna die i'm gonna die shit piss fuck why am i doing this shit i'm gonna die".

Now then if the guy was putting his backpack in the luggage compartment he might not even have planned to die and then also consider he might think it was right and necessary action. Stress is internal tension, which will not be present if the individual is sufficiently convinced of the necessity of something.

Finally, also remember that we have about 8 seconds of video, and that the guy appears to be pacing.

How does someone get hold of explosives with a Micigan DL in Bulgaria . Mr joe sixpack then has to know how to mix nitrogen and diesel and have a primer cap. OR he used militery grade, in which case this was not a "lone wolf", so then the FBI must be involved.

You don't make a primer by mixing nitrogen and diesel. You're confusing ammonium nitrate with nitrogen. Which would result in anfo after mixing with diesel. Anfo however is not a primer but a secondary. A crap secondary.

Even that's not necessarily a fact. They might not have been run out of Israel, and the Palestinians could possibly be the descendents of the original Judaic population:
