In his book Tom Ridge alleged that the Bush administration pressured him to raise the terror alert level before the 2004 elections. I am sure this was done to scare people into voting for Bush.

 

Now comes word that a con man was responsible for convincing the White House to raise the alert level to Orange in December of 2003.

 

I guess these are the people Cheney and the CIA depended on to protect Americans. Wasn’t it another con man who convinced Bush/Cheney to attack Iraq?

 

Dennis Montgomery, has been embroiled in various lawsuits, including one for allegedly bouncing $1 million in checks during a Caesars Palace spree. His former lawyer calls him a “habitual liar engaged in fraud.” 

 

Montgomery convinced the CIA he could decode secret terrorist targeting information sent through Al Jazeera broadcasts. His “decodings” resulted in Tom Ridge warning of “near-term attacks that could either rival or exceed what we experience on September 11″ in 2003.

 

A new report in Playboy (of all places) explains that the CIA was taken in by this con-artist and did not do enough fact checking before passing it up the chain to scare the hell out of Americans.

 

I am sure that Cheney would say that he would do it again. Better be safe and cry wolf any chance you get even if you have nothing to base it on. So you scare a couple of hundred million Americans.

 

According to the story in Playboy “A branch of the French intelligence services helped convince the Americans that the bar codes were fake. The CIA and the French commissioned a technology company to locate or re-create codes in the Al Jazeera transmission. They found definitively that what Montgomery claimed was there was not. Quietly, as far as the CIA was concerned, the case was closed. The agency turned the matter over to the counterintelligence side to see where it had gone wrong.”
