Mike Malloy (formerly of CNN – and you know it’s bad when CNN does not want you anymore), is putting forth the idea that powerful republicans who want to make Obama look bad staged the Underwear Bomber on Delta Flight 253 on Christmas Day.
From Radio Equalizer:
MALLOY (05:05): Now, the inquiry, the questions are being raised as to whether or not this is not a deliberate attempt to embarrass… ah, that’s not quite a strong enough word, but let’s start there, embarrass the Obama Administration – that there are forces at work in this country, and I believe this as surely as I put on my right shoe before my left – that there are forces alive who are very active, very wealthy in this country, at work in this country that want Obama to fail no matter what and the idea of killing 200 to 300 people on a jetliner in order to make the point is nothing. It means nothing.
We kill that many in a week in our adventures around the world in places where we’re bombing where we shouldn’t even be. So, apparently, there’s some investigation, I don’t know who’s going to do the investigating, lot of questions to be answered.
My gut feeling is this was deliberate, this was deliberately done in order to put the Obama Administration in such a vice grip, that it’s impossible to get anything done, to raise so much fear, this is what Republicans do, this is what they do…
UPDATE: Mike Malloy and Keith Olbermann, two peas in a pod! Bush, Republicans, the CIA, all have conspired to bring down Obama via plane bombings.
Since we can no longer trust our government to do the right thing, many believe that this attack was staged, but not for the reason Mr. Malloy is espousing. I think it’s more along the lines of getting public support behind invading Yemen.
