Underwear Bomber Guilty Plea Shields Government Complicity

After initially vowing to plead innocent and call Kurt Haskell, the man who saw him being aided onto Delta Flight 253 by a well dressed man, as a defense witness, alleged underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab has changed his mind and admitted all eight charges against him, thereby protecting accomplices involved in the plot.

“Umar Farouk AbdulMutallab, the Nigerian man accused of trying to detonate an explosive device in his underwear aboard a Christmas 2009 flight to Detroit, pleaded guilty to all counts in court Wednesday. AbdulMutallab had previously pleaded not guilty to the charges,” reports CNN.

In the space of a few days, Abdulmutallab completely reversed his decision to defend himself, and made no proper statement in court, instead simply reeling off a list of cliched extremist statements.

Abdulmutallab’s reversal now means that Detroit Attorney Kurt Haskell’s contention that the plot was, as in almost every other terror case made public, a product of government entrapment, and that the US intelligence establishment was involved in the aborted attack, will now remain buried, at least for the time being.

Apparently the accused was not allowed on the aircraft because he did not have a passport and that somehow the "well dressed man" convinced security to let him on the plane! Amazing.

Now that the trial is over there will be no investigation into what actually happened with the patsy Abdulmutallab - who also happened to be on a terrorist watch list.
