3. Stochastic Terrorism: Stochastic terrorism is the use of mass communications (radio, tv, and internet) to stir up random lone wolves to carry out violent or terrorist acts that are statistically predictable but individually unpredictable. The biggest stochastic terrorizer aside from the federal U.S. government is Alex Jones of Infowars.com.
4. The Jewish "Lone Wolf" of Al Qaeda: Alleged Al Qaeda mastermind, Adam Gadahn, is not Arab but rather Jewish. Gadahn's grandfather was none other than Carl Pearlman, a prominent urologist and on the Board of Directors of the Anti-Defamation League. Dressed as an Arab, Gadahn repeatedly goes on TV and threatens America with Arab "Lone Wolf" terrorism.
5. "Lone Wolf" Plots & Patsies: The term "Lone Wolf" or "Lone Offender" came from none other than the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in their 2009 memo. Since the memo's release, America and the world have seen "Lone Wolf" attacks increase by 10,000%. Recent "Lone Wolf" attacks indicate that counter-terror officials are steering clear of terror groups and are focusing their "attention" on the "lone" individual.
OBAMACSI.COM: In the assassinations of John F. Kennedy (1963), Robert F. Kennedy (1968), John Lennon (1980), Ronald Reagan (1981), and the terror attacks Oklahoma City Bombing* (1995), the Tuscon Massacre (2010), and Norway Terror Attacks (2011), "Lone Wolves" or individuals said by the media and the government to be acting alone, all share three distinct trademarks:
A. Apprehended within Hours: Alleged suspects were smart enough to hide their secret and murderous plans for months, but stupid enough to stay at the scene or get apprehended by police within hours.
C. Mentally Unstable: Alleged suspects were either under a doctors control at the time of the crime or were severly mentally unstable at the time of their arrest. Many of the suspects did not recall the crimes that they are alleged to have committed.

2. MKULTRA & MIND CONTROL
OBAMACSI.COM: There are many forms of Mind Control,but the most famous and lethal form known to date is codenamed MKULTRA (a covert, illegal CIA human experimentation program, run by the CIA's Office of Scientific Intelligence). This official U.S. government program began in the early 1950s, continuing to the present day, and has repeatedly used unwitting U.S. and Canadian citizens as its test subjects. Most frightening of all, MKULTRA can program unwitting assassins to kill political enemies and/or act as patsies. The assassinations of Robert F. Kennedy and John Lennon both appear to both be MKULTRA hits with many other political assassinations bearing the MKULTRA trademark.
Title: Mind Control
Abstract: Mind control (also known as brainwashing, coercive persuasion, mind abuse, thought control, or thought reform) refers to a process in which a group or individual "systematically uses unethically manipulative methods to persuade others to conform to the wishes of the manipulator(s), often to the detriment of the person being manipulated".
The term has been applied to any tactic, psychological or otherwise, which can be seen as subverting an individual's sense of control over their own thinking, behavior, emotions or decision making. Theories of brainwashing and of mind control were originally developed to explain how totalitarian regimes appeared to succeed in systematically indoctrinating prisoners of war through propaganda and torture techniques.
These theories were later expanded and modified, by psychologists including Margaret Singer, to explain a wider range of phenomena, especially conversions to new religious movements (NRMs). A third-generation theory proposed by Ben Zablocki focused on the utilization of mind control to retain members of NRMs and cults to convert them to a new religion. The suggestion that NRMs use mind control techniques has resulted in scientific and legal controversy (Wikipedia, 2011).
Title: MKULTRA Program
Date: 1950's to Present
Abstract: Project MKULTRA, or MK-ULTRA, was the code name for a covert, illegal CIA human experimentation program, run by the CIA's Office of Scientific Intelligence. This official U.S. government program began in the early 1950s, continuing to the present day, and it used U.S. and Canadian citizens as its test subjects.The published evidence indicates that Project MKULTRA involved the use of many methodologies to manipulate individual mental states and alter brain functions, including the surreptitious administration of drugs and other chemicals, hypnosis, sensory deprivation, isolation, and verbal and sexual abuse.
Project MKULTRA was first brought to wide public attention in 1975 by the U.S. Congress, through investigations by the Church Committee, and by a presidential commission known as the Rockefeller Commission. Investigative efforts were hampered by the fact that CIA Director Richard Helms ordered all MKULTRA files destroyed in 1973; the Church Committee and Rockefeller Commission investigations relied on the sworn testimony of direct participants and on the relatively small number of documents that survived Helms' destruction order.
In 1977, a FOIA request uncovered a cache of 20,000 documents relating to project MKULTRA, which led to the Senate Hearings of 1977. In recent times most information regarding MKULTRA has been officially declassified.
Although the CIA insists that MKULTRA-type experiments have been abandoned, 14-year CIA veteran Victor Marchetti has stated in various interviews that the CIA routinely conducts disinformation campaigns and that CIA mind control research continued. In a 1977 interview, Marchetti specifically called the CIA claim that MKULTRA was abandoned a "cover story."
On the Senate floor in 1977, Senator Ted Kennedy said:The Deputy Director of the CIA revealed that over thirty universities and institutions were involved in an "extensive testing and experimentation" program which included covert drug tests on unwitting citizens "at all social levels, high and low, native Americans and foreign." Several of these tests involved the administration of LSD to "unwitting subjects in social situations." At least one death, that of Dr. Olson, resulted from these activities. The Agency itself acknowledged that these tests made little scientific sense. The agents doing the monitoring were not qualified scientific observers.
Lawrence Teeter, attorney for convicted assassin Sirhan Sirhan, believed Sirhan was under the influence of hypnosis when he fired his weapon at Robert F. Kennedy in 1968. Teeter linked the CIA's MKULTRA program to mind control techniques that he claimed were used to control Sirhan (Wikipedia, 2011).

Abstract: Jesse Ventura and his team learn about the "Manchurian Candidate" program - the Government's use of ordinary citizens as super soldiers to carry-out Government black ops, like assassinations.
Governor Ventura learns how candidates are chosen, subjected to intense psychological stress and trauma, hypnotized, given microchip implants, and given keywords that when activated instruct them to kill on command without any recollection of the events.
Jesse and the team interview an author and experts on the subject, and Jesse meets a man who claims to be a member of the Manchurian Candidate program (TV.com, 2010).
3. STOCHASTIC TERRORISM
OBAMACSI.COM: The most dangerous of all Stochastic terror propagandizes is Alex Jones of Infowars.com. While many of the things Jones speaks about are indeed true, his continual violent rhetoric and exaggeration of news and information will likely push some people over the edge.
4. THE JEWISH "LONE WOLF" OF AL QAEDA
CSI.COM: Alleged Al Qaeda mastermind, Adam Gadahn, is not Arab but rather Jewish. Gadahn's grandfather was none other than Carl Pearlman, a prominent urologist and on the Board of Directors of the Anti-Defamation League. Dressed as an Arab, Gadahn repeatedly goes on TV and threatens America and the world with Arab terrorism from Al Qaeda.
Title: Adam Gadahn
Date: 2004 - Present
Abstract: Adam Yahiye Gadahn. born Adam Pearlman, September 1, 1978) is an American senior operative, cultural interpreter, spokesman and media advisor for the Sunni islamist group Al-Qaeda. Since 2004, he appeared in a number of videos produced by Al-Qaeda as "Azzam the American" ('Azzām al-Amrīki, عزام الأمريكي, sometimes transcribed as Ezzam Al-Amerikee). Gadahn converted to Sunni Islam in 1995, at the age of 17, at a California mosque and is described as a "homegrown", meaning that he has converted to an ideology so firmly that he is now willing to harm his country of origin. He is believed to have inspired the 2007 Osama bin Laden video. In 2004, he was added to the FBI Seeking Information – War on Terrorism list. On October 11, 2006 he was removed from that list, and placed on the Bureau of Diplomatic Security Rewards for Justice Program list of wanted criminals. On the same day, Gadahn was indicted based on the testimony of the FBI case agent E.J. Hilbert II, in the Southern Division of the United States District Court for the Central District of California by a federal grand jury for the capital crime of treason for aiding an enemy of the United States (i.e. Al-Qaeda). Gadahn is the first American charged with treason since Tomoya Kawakita in 1952.Gadahn was born Adam Pearlman, the son of musician Phil Pearlman. Gadahn's Jewish paternal grandfather, Carl Pearlman, was a prominent urologist; and on the Board of Directors of the Anti-Defamation League. According to Gadahn, he was a "zealous supporter" of Israel. Gadahn's paternal grandmother, Agnes Branch, a Christian, was an editor for The Christian Family Chronicles ( genealogical publication for people with the surname "Christian").Gadahn's father, originally Phil Pearlman, grew up in Orange County, California. He was involved in the counterculture movement at the University of California at Irvine, and before Adam's birth became a Christian. Gadahn described his father as having been "raised agnostic or atheist, but he became a believer in One God when he picked up a Bible left on the beach.” His father's religious perspective was flexible and based upon his own spiritual needs and as a new convert to Islam, Gadahn portrayed his father in manner sympathetic to his religion of conversion. Phil and his wife Jennifer changed their name to Gadahn, after the Biblical warrior Gideon (Wikipedia, 2011).
Title: American Al Qaeda Member Acknowledges Jewish Ancestry
Date: June 13, 2009
Abstract: In a new anti-Israel, anti-U.S. video, an American al Qaeda member makes reference to his Jewish ancestry for the first time in an official al Qaeda message.
In the video, Adam Yahiye Gadahn, also known as Azzam the American, discusses his roots as he castigates U.S. policies and deplores Israel's offensive in Gaza that started in late December 2008 and continued into January.
"Let me here tell you something about myself and my biography, in which there is a benefit and a lesson," Gadahn says, as he elicits support from his fellow Muslims for "our weapons, funds and Jihad against the Jews and their allies everywhere."
"Your speaker has Jews in his ancestry, the last of whom was his grandfather," he says.
Growing up in rural California, Gadahn embraced Islam in the mid-1990s, moved to Pakistan and has appeared in al Qaeda videos before.
He was indicted in the United States in 2006 on charges of treason and material support to al Qaeda, according to the FBI. Gadahn is on the FBI's Most Wanted List, with a reward of up to $1 million leading to his capture. FBI records show Gadahn's date of birth as September 1, 1978.
The video -- in which Gadahn speaks Arabic, with English subtitles -- surfaced on Saturday. This account is based on an English transcript provided by As-Sahab Media, the media production company used by al Qaeda.
Gadahn's Jewish ancestry has been reported in the news media. But terrorism analyst Laura Mansfield says it is the first time Gadahn acknowledged his Jewish ancestry in an official al Qaeda message.
Gadahn says his grandfather was a "Zionist" and "a zealous supporter of the usurper entity, and a prominent member of a number of Zionist hate organizations."
"He used to repeat to me what he claimed are the virtues of this entity and encouraged me to visit it, specifically the city of Tel Aviv, where relatives of ours live," says Gadahn, referring to Israel.
He says his grandfather gave him a book by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called "A Place Among the Nations" -- in which the "rabid Zionist" sets out "feeble arguments and unmasked lies to justify the Jews' rape of Muslim Palestine."
But Gadahn says that despite his youth at the time, he didn't heed his grandfather's words.

Abstract: On October 23, 2010, Al-Qaeda's media production company Al-Sahab posted a video featuring American Al-Qaeda operative Adam Gadahn, aka 'Azzam Al-Amriki. The video came out as response to the March 10, 2010 "Mardin: Abode of Peace" conference in Mardin, Turkey, in which a number of Islamic scholars from various countries convened to denounce violent jihad; this was the same conference that was criticized by the radical Yemeni-American cleric in the second issue of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula's English-language Inspire magazine.
In addition to his comments on the conference, Gadahn devoted much of his talk to calling on Muslims living in the West to carry out attacks in their host countries. This is another in a series of statements from Al-Qaeda leaders aimed at encouraging "lone wolf" attacks.
Gadahn took a number of tacks in criticizing the "Mardin: Abode of Peace" conference, but without going into much detail about the technical jurisprudential arguments. According to him, those types of issues should be dealt with by the religious scholars. Instead, he argued more generally that conferences of this sort only serve the "Zio-Crusaders" and their proxies (i.e. the Western-allied regimes in Muslim countries).
Gadahn also addressed the conference's clear attempt to promote its peaceful message to the West, saying that Muslims should worry more about the image of Islam in the eyes of other Muslims than in the eyes of non-Muslims. In addition, Gadahn confessed that he prefers that Muslims be labeled "terrorists" over their being regarded as "lustful," as he claims Muslims were described by Orientalists in the past.
After presenting his arguments against the Mardin conference, Gadahn called upon Muslims who want to participate in the jihad to go to the hot jihad fronts or to attack "interests" belonging to the "Americans, Zionists, Europeans and their allies" all over the world. He said that those Muslims who have a valid shari'a exemption from taking an active role in the jihad should support their fighting brethren in any way they can. He also stressed the importance of destroying the West's "usurious economy" by adhering to the advice of Muslim economists. He mentioned three important fronts in the jihad – Iraq, Yemen and North Africa – and then added that the fourth "front" is the targeting of interests belonging to the Zio-Crusaders throughout the world. He added that he could not see why there should not be more high profile attacks like the attack on the US consulate in Peshawar or the bombing of the Danish embassy in Islamabad. Likewise, he said that all U.S. bases (e.g. those in the Arabian Peninsula) should suffer attacks similar to the 2009 Fort Hood shooting.
In the most significant portion of the video, Gadahn continued Al-Qaeda's recent emphasis on encouraging Muslims living in the West to plan and carry out jihad attacks of their own. As Gadahn put it, "Don't wait for someone else to do what you can do for yourself, and don't delay until tomorrow what you can do today."
Gadahn added a message specifically addressed "to my Muslim brothers
residing in the states of the Zio-Crusader coalition, whether they are
from the emigrant communities, like those which live on the margins of
society in the miserable suburbs of Paris, London, and Detroit, or are
from those arriving in America or Europe to study in its universities or
seek their daily bread in the streets of its cities. My brothers: Know
that jihad is your duty as well, and that you have an opportunity to
strike the leaders of unbelief and retaliate against them on their own
soil, as long as there is no covenant between you and them. Here you are
in the battlefield, just like heroes before you like Muhammad Atta and
his fellow [9/11] pilots, [7/7 London bomber] Muhammad Siddique Khan and
his fellow Fedayeen, [Theo Van Gogh's murderer] Muhammad Bouyeri, [Fort
Hood shooter] Nidal Malik Hasan, [Christmas Day bomber] Umar Farouk
Abdulmuttalab, [Times Square bomber] Faisal Shahzad, and hundreds of
others…" (MEMRI, 2010).
OBAMACSI.COM: The term "Lone Wolf" or "Lone Offender" came from none other than the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in their 2009 memo.

Abstract: (U//FOUO) Lone Wolves and Small Terrorist Cells
(U//FOUO) DHS/I&A assesses that lone wolves and small terrorist
cells embracing violent rightwing extremist ideology are the most
dangerous domestic terrorism threat in the United States. Information
from law enforcement and nongovernmental organizations indicates lone
wolves and small terrorist cells have shown intent—and, in some cases,
the capability—to commit violent acts.
(U//LES) DHS/I&A has concluded that white supremacist lone wolves pose the most significant domestic terrorist threat because of their low profile and autonomy—separate from any formalized group—which hampers warning efforts.
(U//FOUO) Similarly, recent state and municipal law enforcement reporting has warned of the dangers of rightwing extremists embracing the tactics of “leaderless resistance” and of lone wolves carrying out acts of violence.
(U//FOUO) Arrests in the past several years of radical militia members in Alabama, Arkansas, and Pennsylvania on firearms, explosives, and other related violations indicates the emergence of small, well-armed extremist groups in some rural areas (U.S. Department of Homeland Security, 2009).

“The possible passage of new restrictions on firearms and the return of military veterans facing significant challenges reintegrating into their communities could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremists capable of carrying out violent attacks,” the report concludes (emphasis added).

Title: 'Lone Offenders' Biggest Threat To Presidential Address, Report Finds
Date: January 27, 2010
Source: Fox News
Abstract: The joint threat assessment for Wednesday's State of the Union address finds no specific targeting of President Obama or the U.S. Capitol, but says the most likely potential threat comes from "lone offenders."
"Lone offenders pose the greatest potential
threat because their operational independence and limited trusted
associations make it difficult to detect, monitor, and disrupt their
the bulletin sent to local, federal and state law enforcement.
Significantly, the assessment gives as two examples of "lone offenders" the Holocaust Museum shooter and Major Nidal Hasan, the alleged shooter in the Fort Hood attack.
"In November, a U.S. Army officer stationed at Fort Hood Texas allegedly opened fire on individuals at the installation killing 12 and wounding at least 31," the assessment reads.
The assessment does not use the word "terrorism" or "Al Qaeda," in relationship to Hasan, even though a senior administration official has acknowledged that Fort Hood was "an act of terrorism."
Although these attacks were not related to the State of the Union address, potential lone offenders have made numerous threats against the president and other government officials," reads the bulletin.It adds that no credible information has arisen "of an international terrorist threat to the Capitol or participants present during the State of the Union address" though Al Qaeda remains interested in attacking the United States (Fox News, 2010).
Title: Obama Will Be Most Threatened U.S. Leader In History
Date: March 29, 2010
Abstract: One does not have to be a security expert to realize that Barack Obama's presidency constitutes an unprecedented challenge to the Secret Service.
American presidents, a coveted target of various Islamic Jihad
networks, have always received the most watertight degree of security
the service is able to provide, but it seems even more crucial in light
of the American intervention in Iraq and Afghanistan.
United States is highly unpopular in many corners of the world due to
its allegedly domineering culture and economy.
Potential threats to the life of American presidents have come from a wide spectrum of circles: Islamic terrorists, fundamentalists, anarchists, and far-leftists; and now, due to Obama's skin color, from the American reactionary far-right as well.
A similar view is held by Mark Potok of
Alabama's Southern Poverty Law Center, which, among others, monitors
extreme right groups...Even though these attempts were seemingly
amateurish, he says, they may point to an emergent trend. The threat
from white supremacist hate groups has certainly increased, he says.
Combined with the credit crunch, growing immigration and demographic
change, Obama's election may usher a political climate that could
produce an assassination attempt. It is most likely, though, to be a
lone assassin, he says, rather than an organized network (Haaretz, 2010
Title: Welcome To The Era Of The 'Lone Wolf'
Date: July 28, 2011
Source: Fox News
Abstract: Last December, I met with senior Swedish officials, including a cabinet minister, over security concerns related to the safety of the Jewish community. Truth be told, I didn’t make much progress. It was explained to me that authorities have a list of about 800 extremists, roughly divided between Islamist militants and far-right neo-Nazis. Subtext: We have the situation in our country under control. “Was Taimur Abdulwahab al-Abdaly on your list,” I asked.
The answer was no.
Authorities were apparently clueless about the radicalized Iraqi-born Swedish citizen who blew himself up prematurely in the heart of Stockholm, just yards away from hundreds of Christmas shoppers.
Sweden dodged a bullet that day, but Norway had no such luck.
In the wake of the carnage carried out by Andres Behring Breivik, authorities expressed shock he had escaped their scrutiny, since they had long-since infiltrated extremist groups.
Welcome to the era of the leaderless, "Lone Wolf."
"Lone Wolf," or leaderless resistance, probably traces back to anarchists of the late 19th century but re-emerged a quarter of a century ago in the United States when, in reaction to the government's successful infiltration of violent groups like The Order, ex-klansman Louis Beam urged like-minded, anti-government extremists to re-form into small, untraceable cells.
That strategy has been deployed across America’s political and social spectrum: from radical environmentalists and animal rights protesters, to extreme anti-abortion activists, to Oklahoma City bomber Tim McVeigh, and neo-Nazi types.
In 1999, one of them, white supremacist Buford O. Furrow, Jr., went on a lone wolf terror rampage in Los Angeles, shooting up a day camp at a Jewish community center and murdering a Filipino-American postal worker.
The ultimate “lone wolf,” of course, was Unabomber Ted Kaczynski. Indeed, Andres Beivik ripped off parts of the Unabomber’s writings in his 1,500-page cut-and-paste manifesto.
But there are profound differences between the ultimate loner, Kaczynski, and Breivik. The self-appointed latter day Templar was quite social and gained empowerment and validation from like-minded bigots while evading police scrutiny. How? The Internet.
Intelligence and police agencies in the UK and the U.S. already have their hands full with Al Qaeda's decentralized Internet-based recruitment of individuals or small groups, who act without central direction. Deadly examples include the 7/7 London bombers and Colonel Hassan, the perpetrator of the Fort Hood Massacre.
And now the attacks in Norway.
There is, for now, no neo-Nazi guru of terror equivalent to Sheik al-Awlaki, but there is a significant subculture of hate pre-positioned to validate and inspire bigots like Breivik.
Take, for example, the Swedish Nazi web forum Nordisk (Nordic) that Breivik has been an active member of since 2009. Some members have called for political terrorism and bomb attacks on government buildings.
According to the anti-Nazi group EXPO, the common denominator of the Nordisk Forum online community is a hatred for immigrants and a multicultural Europe. Discussions went way beyond pseudo-intellectual posturing. “The Turner Diaries,” the book labeled “the terrorist bible” that inspired the Oklahoma City bombing (using a fertilizer-based bomb) was also promoted in the Forum.
And in March 2010, EXPO reported the anonymous posting:
"Cars parked by a large building carrying fertilizer and gasoline can make a nice explosion. The skyscrapers will come down like the twin towers of the World Trade Center. We are not talking about killing people. We hope the buildings will be empty, but if they aren't, that will be unfortunate ... I don't understand why people are not aware that we must wage war. Leading politicians in the government, who live at a remove from the threat that immigrants pose, have decided they can come here to live with us in our society. They are misusing what our ancestors built here. In my opinion, nothing you could do to those creatures would be immoral."
Breivik appears to have used the full spectrum of the Internet. The Norwegian newspaper Verdens Gang reports that Breivik has posted at least 75 Islamophobic and racist commentaries on Facebook.
"When will multiculturalism stop being an ideology designed to disintegrate European culture, identity, nation states and traditions?" Breivik demanded.
Authorities are combing through Breivik’s property and belongings to try to ascertain how he learned to build so powerful a bomb. In fact, you don’t have to go far beyond YOUTUBE, which boasts dozens of how-to videos instructing the uninitiated about converting a cellphone into a detonator and other practical tips to blow up a watermelon or your neighbor.
So while bowing our heads in prayer for the innocents and innocence lost in Norway, we all need to come to grips with the growing threat of digitally inspired lone wolves. Hate may be as old as Cain and Abel, but the combination of hate and technology presents a new threat we have yet to fully fathom, let alone thwart (Fox News, 2011).
