The Crime Syndicate behind the Bataclan Paris staged deception know that there are holes in their story big enough to drive a truck through. A question I asked from Day 1: How did masked, heavily armed gunmen get such easy access into the theater and go unnoticed by a large crowd.
The method being used of late is to roll out one of the key actors, Jesse “The Devil” Hughes, with some true confessions and “new insights.” Jesse is spinning the yarn that when he came to the theater that night he “noticed security was missing,” causing him to speculate on an “inside job.”
In addition, he speculates that guns saved the day. This serves not only as misdirection and controlled opposition but also to put the fraud briefly back into the news cycle with false “revised possibilities” to be “solved.” It also answers the question that those with greater critical thinking skills may be asking, such as where the heck did this big story go? Hughes also offers more ritualistic New Age mumble jumble, contradictions and other incoherent stories in these interviews.
The method is called “confession and avoidance,” or “taking the limited-hangout route.” This way, you create the phony impression of candor and honesty while admitting to only relatively harmless, less-than-criminal aspects. This stratagem often requires the embrace of a fallback position quite different from the one originally taken. A fallback position need only be peddled by the stooges to skeptics and carefully limited audiences.
A variation of this is lightly reporting incriminating facts, and then making nothing of them. This is sometimes referred to as “bump-and-run” reporting.
The add-on tactic to Hughes’ new limit hangout role was to flood the Internet with disinfo agents. For instance, Reddit’s conspiracy subreddit had the Hughes story multiple times and with liberal up votes.
What could possibly motivate a person to spend hour upon hour on Internet news groups defending the government or Crime Syndicate and/or the press and harassing and suppressing genuine critics? Doth protest to loudly. Don’t the authorities have enough defenders in all the newspapers, magazines, radio and television?
