Patsies-- Assassinations and Terror
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.
