Connecting the Iranian Dots for the April 16th Electrical Power Grid Attack
February 7, 2014
It has been
publicly acknowledged since 9/11 that Iran has hundreds of agents
scattered throughout the United States. Since that time, there have been
many suspicious incidents involving Iranians with diplomatic immunity
surveilling U.S. infrastructure, including the filming of the New York
subway tracks and Grand Central Station, the photographing of New York
City landmarks, including bridges and tunnels, and the casing of water
lines and heliport landing areas, to name a few.
These incidents lead to speculation of possible Iranian involvement in the April 16th attack on the transformers in San Jose.
(NOTE: This attack occurred on the same day as the Boston Marathon bombing).
Here are the basics of the attack:
At around 1:00
A.M. on April 16th, several individuals using high-powered rifles shot
over 100 rounds at the radiators of 17 transformers at the San Jose Sub
Station, which supplies power to the Silicon Valley. This particular
tactic - aiming at the radiators - was employed so that the transformers
wouldn't be knocked out instantly. Instead, as the cooling fluid
gradually leaked out of the transformers, they would overheat over time,
giving the perpetrators time to get away before police arrived. Most
likely, there were lookouts as the attackers left the scene one minute
before law enforcement were on the scene.
Prior to the
attack, the culprits lifted a couple of heavy manhole covers to access
the fiberoptics communication lines so that no timely reporting of the
incident could take place. A car with headlights shining on the site was
noticed after the attack. There is speculation that the terrorists were
observing the results of their actions and the response that resulted.
U.S. Navy Seals
viewed the site after the incident and commented on its professional
execution. They surmised that an earlier team had gone in to situate
rocks indicating the best lines of fire. The Seals observed that the
operation was performed following the type of guidelines they themselves
would use in such an attack.
There are two interpretations of the electrical grid attack of April 16th:
1) This was a dry run for a future massive attack.
2) This was the real thing
that would have taken down the entire Silicon Valley and San Francisco
if it hadn't been for the quick thinking and action of alert PG&E
technicians who rerouted power around the site.
observation: There is a critical implied threat here that the U.S. dare
not interfere with Iran's nuclear development. The implications for
serious action on U.S. soil are clear.
[This next paragraph is a leap away from the subject and is covered in this news article:
NOTE: The prime
movers behind the recent change in U.S. laws to allow those involved in
"a little bit of terrorism" to come into the country have included
Mohammed Magid (president of ISNA and imam of the ADAMS mosque), who
sits on Obama's Homeland Security Advisory Committee, and Sohail Kahn, a
Muslim Brotherhood operative who has infiltrated the conservative
movement through his affiliation with Grover Norquist. This new ruling
codifies the position that these people don't have to be concerned about
being prosecuted for funding terrorism. This is in line with Obama's
2009 statement in Cairo that he would remove obstacles to the practice
