US using terror alert to keep war on terror going: Barrett

Press TV

Political analyst Dr. Kevin Barrett believes that the recent global terror alert by the United States shows that Washington needs something to keep the so-called war on terror going.

“There is a hidden agenda of course behind it and that is to keep the so-called war on terror going and to do that they need to periodically check and see if people still believe this kind of nonsense,” he said in a phone interview with Press TV on Sunday.  

“Terror alert issued by the US government is just as ridiculous as previous series of terror alerts,” Barrett, who is an editor at Veterans Today, said.

“This warning is completely non-specific. They say that Western targets could be attacked somewhere in the world. So, that’s a lot of targets,” he said. “This kind of warning is completely meaningless.”

The US State Department said on Friday that it ordered the closure of 21 diplomatic facilities on Sunday after intelligence agencies said they had picked up “chatter” from senior al-Qaeda leaders indicating major attacks through August.

“Current information suggests that al-Qaeda and affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks both in the region and beyond, and that they may focus efforts to conduct attacks in the period between now and the end of August,” the department said.

Americans have also been warned about the potential for attacks on “public transportation systems and other tourist infrastructure.”

  1. Well, what a huge failure to communicate. Since the US State Department is part of the usurped government apparatus that houses and runs the banksters’ CIA, which has the responsibilities of recruiting and managing al-Qaeda mercenaries, why don’t they all just sit down and have a long talk about all their plans to destroy and kill innocents both abroad and at home. Then they can let us know via mainstream propaganda which of us they have in their deadly sights and when. Sheesh.

  2. So they cry “Wolf” again. Now we can expect some terrorist attack somewhere, sometime, anytime now. Eww I’m scared (not). I can’t wait for the day when these f%&kers stand in judgement before the people.

  3. “Current information suggests that al-Qaeda and affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks both in the region and beyond, and that they may focus efforts to conduct attacks in the period between now and the end of August,” the department said.”

    No brainer.

    Just ask the CIA (alias al-CIAda) what their plans are.
