Patsies-- Assassinations and Terror

The major political assassinations in the US that took place between 1963 and 1980 (JFK, RFK, MLK, Wallace (failed), Reagan (failed)) all had strong indications that they were covert operation that used a designated "patsy". In these cases, the patsy was someone who plausibly could have committed the crime, had some motive for the crime, and was typically at the scene of the crime with a gun (i.e. Oswald, Sirhan, Ray, Bremer, Hinckley). Importantly, the real killing bullets come from nearby professional hitmen (professional killers). The patsies take the blame and the real killers escape unnoticed.

Thus, the use of a patsy is the perfect way to control the operation and deflect blame at the same time.

Interestingly, recent major terror attacks (9/11/01, the Bali bombings, the London 7/7 bombings and the recent Jordanian bombings) almost certainly involve the use of patsies. The pattern for these operations seems to be that the patsy is a plausible Muslim suicide bomber, but that the bomb attack has been pre-set by intelligence agents-- for instance, in London, the bombs were pre-set on the trains and bus, and in Jordan the bombs were pre-set in the ceilings of the hotel rooms. The bomber is made to go to the location (probably without a bomb and unknowingly) and the pre-set bomb is detonated, and it seems as though the patsy set off the bomb. I think this pattern is quite clear and I am quite sure 9/11 was set-up similarly. The question then is, how exactly were the 9/11 patsies set-up? Were they put on planes that went somewhere else (so the patsies)? Were they on planes piloted by remote-control? Were they on the planes at all (and perhaps the whole ruse was to make it seem as if they were on the planes?)? What did the 9/11 patsies think they were doing? Did they want to do a hijack but NOT neccessarily commit suicide (for instance, did they want to take hostages and make demands?)?

The bottom line is that I think understanding how patsies are used in these various operations will give us important clues as to exactly how 9/11 was set-up.

Note: the Wellstone assassination in 2002 was a different form of take-down, involving another classic technique-- a sabotaged plane, and did not involve a patsy.
