Isn't it amazing how the MSM, especially the NYT, will quietly, quietly let a story die for the sole purpose of trying to protect obama?

Obviously, the "story" is not exactly as the administration said at first.

It was so bad in the eyes of many politicians that the plot alone (which never came to fruition) was called an "act of war."

Today the lead story on the front page of the New York Times online is "Atlanta Welcomes the Zombie Apocalypse." I don't see any articles in today's Times about the terror plot that had us considering military action against the Iranians only a week ago.

What gives?
The whole story was fake, made up by the Obama administration to devert attention away from the Fast and Furious and green energy scandals.

It's a worderful aspect of the internet that they can't get away with spreading that crap anymore.

As it stands now the Obama Admin says they have some circumstantianal evidence the Qud forces knew about the "plot" but they can't release it or they have to kill us....LOL

How sad it is you can't even trust the US government anymore.
Anymore?? When could you?

They will not get the scoops from unnamed sources and get invited to cocktail parties.
Careful padcrasher, you are exposing there game plan to the sheeple. You know they don't like that. They will be watching you a little closer now. If you see a black sedan sitting in front of your house you then know it's to late, they are on to you and you must be silenced.

But the one day headliners are enough to keep that fear of being blown up to smithereens by "terrorists" alive in the minds of Americans.

Got to keep the fear alive !

The media's still silent on this. I guess we'll never find out who was behind this.

Only because your side is perfectly fine with goverment propaganda designed to demonize Iran is the media able to drop it.

If both sides tacitly agree with an issue. It's not news.

Had this been Obama lying about abortion protestors organizations, or planting evidence about an oil company...the right and the media would be ALL OVER IT.

There seems to be a dance of warship positioning. I suspect the foundations have been lain for war with Iran in the not too distant future.
They've been saying that since gulf I. The left used to claim all the stuff that happened during Bush II was "false flag".

It's really wierd that the people that truly believe 911 was a false flag would consider this a false flag given it's insignificance.

....and no one remembers Jeff Fort.
