    Is the US behind some of the car bombings in Iraq?

    This article, from Uruknet certainly makes some interesting observations: On May 13, 2005, a 64 years old Iraqi farmer, Haj Haidar Abu Sijjad, took his tomato load in his pickup truck from Hilla to Baghdad, accompanied by Ali, his 11 years old grandson. They were stopped at an American check point and were asked to dismount. An American soldier climbed on the back of the pickup truck, followed by another a few minutes later, and thoroughly inspected the tomato filled plastic containers for about 10 minutes. Haj Haidar and his grandson were then allowed to proceed to Baghdad. A minute later, his grandson told him that he saw one of the American soldiers putting a grey melon size object in the back among the tomato containers. The Haj immediately slammed on the brakes and stopped the car at the side of the road, at a relatively far distance from the check point. He found a time bomb with the clock ticking tucked among his tomatoes. He immediately recognized it, as he was an ex-army soldier. Panicking, he grabbed his grandson and ran away from the car. Then, realizing that the car was his only means of work, he went back, took the bomb and carried it in fear. He threw it in a deep ditch by the side of the road that was dug by Iraqi soldiers in preparation for the war, two years ago. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts

    I suspect that the US may also have been behind the regime change in Iraq. Really! Is this the best anti-US story that you can dig up today?

    I couldn't read the article. First it was not reporting, it was an op-ed. Second, the tone. The guy comes off like a crazy.

    Sure, the U.S. has carried out a doozy car bomb in the past, namely the CIA's attempt to kill Ayatollah Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah in Beirut in March 1995. The blast kill 80 people and wounded 250 others including the Ayatollah, who was not seriously injured. But I don't see the bombings in Iraq being of U.S. origin.

    The article, I believe raised some very interesting questions, and as there have now been numerous reports such as the one I quoted from the piece, then I think these reports at least deserve some attention.

    When the car bombs use C4 military grade explosives only made in this country detonated by laser technology only made in the US we need to ask how are these explosives getting into the hands of terrorists?

    Who are the terrorists when the Pentagon deploys a tactic called the Terrorist Tension Tactic, meant to destabilize a population. Americans have no way to know when we are being lied to and to what extent. No fool with half a wit would believe anything the official story tells him in these times so I do not believe the official story for one second.
