” It has been publicly acknowledged since 9/11 that Iran has hundreds of agents scattered throughout the United States. Since that time, there have been many suspicious incidents involving Iranians, with diplomatic immunity, surveilling U.S. infrastructure, including the filming of the New York subway tracks and Grand Central Station, the photographing of New York City landmarks, including bridges and tunnels, and the casing of water lines and heliport landing areas, to name a few.
These incidents lead to speculation of possible Iranian involvement in the April 16th attack on the transformers in San Jose.”
Freedom Outpost offers some speculative food for thought on the subject …
” U.S. Navy Seals viewed the site after the incident and commented on its professional execution. They surmised that an earlier team had gone in to situate rocks indicating the best lines of fire. The Seals observed that the operation was performed following the type of guidelines they themselves would use in such an attack.
There are two interpretations of the electrical grid attack of April 16th:
1) This was a dry run for a future massive attack.
2) This was the real thing that would have taken down the entire Silicon Valley and San Francisco if it hadn’t been for the quick thinking and action of alert PG&E technicians who rerouted power around the site.”
Whatever may be the truth our faithful FBI is ready to assure us that this “was not a terrorist attack” . Then just what the h**l do you call it ? They call it a random crime , but does anyone really believe that vandals would go to the lengths of cutting phone lines to take some pot-shots at an electrical substation in the middle of the night and leave behind over 100 fired shell casings … all fingerprint free ?
” If you have not heard about the attack on the Silicon Valley substation yet, you should look into it. The following is an excerpt from a Business Insider article about the sniper assault…
The Wall Street Journal’s Rebecca Smith reports that a former Federal Energy Regulatory Commission chairman is acknowledging for the first time that a group of snipers shot up a Silicon Valley substation for 19 minutes last year, knocking out 17 transformers before slipping away into the night.”
” The attack was “the most significant incident of domestic terrorism involving the grid that has ever occurred” in the U.S., Jon Wellinghoff, who was chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission at the time, told Smith.
Evidence found at the scene included “more than 100 fingerprint-free shell casings“, and little piles of rocks “that appeared to have been left by an advance scout to tell the attackers where to get the best shots.”
So much damage was done to the substation that it was closed down for a month.”

” The leaders of the congressional intelligence committees say that the United States is not safer today than in recent years.”
They need more money and to curtail more of our liberty’s . It’s the same old story of government by fear . Create a crisis where none exists , then step in as the hero with non-existent solutions to non-existent problems .
” CNN’s Candy Crowley kicked off her sit-down interview, asking, “Are we safer now than we were a year ago, two years ago?”
“I don’t think so,” Feinstein replied. “
Give us a wee bit more of your rights and we promise we’ll make you safe … oh , and the check is in the mail .
” The recent uptick in terrorism reminds us of the need to remain vigilant. But it is also important to keep in mind long term trends. Below are two graphs generated by Cato’s new website, www.humanprogress.org, using Harvard University Professor Steven Pinker’s data. According to Pinker, there has been a sustained downward trend in deaths from terrorism.”
Seeing as the average American is four times more likely to be struck by lightning than to become a victim of terrorism we’d say that we are pretty safe overall , but that doesn’t stop the fear-mongering and pleas from the Statists for us to trust them a little more and relinquish a little more freedom in the name of that catch-all bugaboo … “public safety”
The Truthseeker: 9/11 & Operation Gladio
” Gunman attacked the city’s Special Forces headquarters and other security buildings in this increasingly restive city Saturday in what some residents suspected was a retaliatory response to an assault a week ago that killed 32 and shut down the nation’s largest militia.
The latest attack fueled concerns of a further deteriorating security situation in this already volatile city, Libya’s second largest. The interim head of the Libyan army, Salem al-Konidi warned of a potential “bloodbath” that could emerge here.
The attacks began around 3 a.m. local time when gunfire could be heard outside places such as the nation’s Army Special Forces headquarters. The mob then moved to a police building and at least three other security outposts, before fighting ended around 6 a.m. According to estimates by one Special Forces official, five soldiers and four gunmen were killed and another four people were injured.
Suspicion fell on members of the Libyan Shields, a militia group set up and funded by the government to buttress the nation’s nascent government forces.”
