Black Propaganda Sample:
"A newly released inspector general report (PDF) backs eyewitness accounts of suspicious behavior by 13 Middle Eastern men on a Northwest Airlines flight in 2004 and reveals several missteps by government officials, including failure to file an incident report until a month after the matter became public. According to the Homeland Security report, the “suspicious passengers,” 12 Syrians and their Lebanese-born promoter, were traveling on Flight 327 from Detroit to Los Angeles on expired visas. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services extended the visas one week after the June 29, 2004, incident.The report also says that a background check in the FBI’s National Crime Information Center database, which was performed June 18 as part of a visa-extension application, produced “positive hits” for past criminal records or suspicious behavior for eight of the 12 Syrians, who were traveling in the U.S. as a musical group."
"In addition, the band’s promoter was listed in a separate FBI database on case investigations for acting suspiciously aboard a flight months earlier. He was detained a third time in September on a return trip to the U.S. from Istanbul, the details of which were redacted."
Possible Black Propagandist Case Study: Annie Jacobsen
Please note I can find no photos nor any evidence the news media even tried to contact the Syrian musicians in question. IE we apparently have no evidence these men exist. These men exist only as characters in a narrative promoted by new media and governmental sourcing. In other words, there does not appear to be any actors cast to portray the musicians or any actual musicians used.
Jacobsen Sells Paranoia
"Furthermore, the federal air marshals believed that Jacobsen "over-reacted" at the presence of persons of Middle Eastern appearance on the flight and "was in danger of panicking other passengers and creating a larger problem". They were also concerned that Jacobsen's actions were part of a terrorist plot to create a disturbance in order that the marshals be identified and that she "could have put the entire flight in danger"."
"CLAIM: Passengers encountered by reporter on airline flight were proved to be terrorists making a dry run at assembling a bomb on-board."
"ORIGINS: The above-quoted “Terror in the Skies, Again?” article written by Annie Jacobsen and published on WomensWallStreet.com, in which the author detailed her experience with passengers who were supposedly making a “dry run” bombing attempt on Flight 327 from Detroit to Los Angeles on 29 June 2004 flight, caused quite a stir when it was first released. As summarized by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) from statements given by a number of persons involved with that flight (i.e., other passengers, flight crew members, federal air marshals), thirteen “Middle Eastern men” traveling as passengers Flight 327 were observed behaving “in a suspicious manner that aroused attention and concern”: Briefly, the following events occurred. Thirteen Middle Eastern men were traveling together as a musical group, 12 carrying Syrian passports and one, a lawful permanent resident of the United States of Lebanese descent, purchased one-way tickets from Detroit to Los Angeles. Six of the men arrived at the gate together after boarding began, then split up and acted as if they were not acquainted. According to air marshals, the men also appeared sweaty and nervous. An air marshal assigned to Flight 327 observed their behavior and characterized it as “unusual,” but made no further reports at the time. During the flight, the men again acted suspiciously. Several of the men changed seats, congregated in the aisles, and arose when the fasten seat belt sign was turned on; one passenger moved quickly up the aisle toward the cockpit and, at the last moment, entered the first class lavatory. The passenger remained in the lavatory for about 20 minutes. Several of the men spent excessive time in the lavatories. Another man carried a large McDonald’s restaurant bag into a lavatory and made a thumbs-up signal to another man upon returning to his seat. However, what was lost amidst the hubbub and hysteria engendered by the “Terror in the Skies” article was the fact all the passengers in question were detained by federal and local law enforcement officials, investigated by the FBI and the FAMS (Federal Air Marshal Service), cleared, and released. No matter how suspect their actions might have appeared to observers, none of the Middle Eastern men was arrested or charged with a crime (then or later), no unusual materials were found on their persons or in the airplane, and no information released to the public since then by any of the investigating agencies has claimed or documented that those men were actually terrorists engaged in a “dry run” bombing attempt rather than musicians traveling to a scheduled performace. (The National Review reported that
the Syrians were in fact booked to perform as backup musicians for singer Nour Mehana at the Sycuan Casino & Resort near San Diego two days after arriving in Los Angeles on Flight 327.)"
