French Caught Planning an ISIS False Flag Terror Attack on the French*
By Baxter Dmitry
Reports from France indicate that the French government have been caught planning an ISIS false flag terror attack on its own citizens. ISIS flags, video equipment, Arabic newspapers and a generator were discovered by gardeners in a cave outside the town of Saumur – causing panic among local and national police and anti-terrorist units – only for a senior military figure to announce that the contents of the cave were part of a mysterious “exercise.”
French website Union Populaire Republicaine (UPR) reports that as one of the gardeners approached the cave, he “saw three men get into a white van and leave quickly. Approaching the cave, his surprise was great since he discovered video equipment, a generator, Arabic newspapers and ISIS flags.
Thinking he had discovered a hideout used by terrorists preparing attacks, the employee immediately informed the police, who in turn alerted the state services and anti-terrorist forces.
The national police, municipal police and gendarmerie were quickly on site, followed by the sub-prefect of Saumur, the prosecutor, forensic identification, and the Departmental Directorate of Public Security. Local residents were obviously worried about this deployment of forces, and the local press, mainly the Courrier de L’Ouest, was quickly on the scene.
After two hours of investigation, the sub-prefect of Saumur announced that this was a false alarm: he had been told by a spokesman from the Joint Centre Nuclear, Radiological, Biological and Chemical that the existence of the generator and ISIS paraphernalia in the cave was part of a ‘training exercise‘.”
That at least is the “official version” that was served to the media. Curiously, the press was satisfied with this explanation.
It is also curious that the vast majority of the media ignored a story that caused alarm for thousands of local residents and involved all of the nation’s emergency services. The story was reported by Courrier de L’Ouest, the local newspaper previously mentioned, and another local outlet Saumur Kiosque. However only two national publications reported the story. Le Figaro thought it warranted a “brief” and BHM-TV published an article suggesting the military should have forewarned the police about the operation.
Google news search results. Only three articles from national media appear in the Google news search about this case. The almost complete silence from major French media on this case, which raised strong emotions in Saumur, is extremely strange.
The incredible fact that almost all major French media outlets chose not to relay information and refrained from sending investigative journalists to cover the story makes this whole affair even stranger.
Online commentators in France have suggested the government might be choosing to cover up the discovery of a real terror plot in order not to panic the population. However that is not President Hollande’s style – quite the opposite, in fact.
Need we recall the French President announcing, on July 19 at the National Assembly:
“Although these words are hard to pronounce, it is my duty to do so: there will be more attacks and there will be other innocents killed. We must not get used – never – but learn to live with this threat.”
Union Populaire Republicaine, the only outlet asking the right questions about this incident, isn’t buying the idea that the government is covering up an exposed terrorist threat to calm the jangled nerves of the French population:
“The fact is that the government would probably have been delighted to discover a ‘stash of Daesh.’ It could have served to show the validity of the nation’s State of Emergency on one hand, and shown that the government and the security services fight effectively against terrorism, on the other.“
But why would the Joint Centre for Defence Nuclear, Radiological, Biological and Chemical (NRBC CIA) need to possess ISIS flags and propaganda? Is this a necessary element in the conduct of a technical exercise involving nuclear or chemical substances?
In fact, UPR are demanding a “parliamentary inquiry to clarify the serious shortcomings revealed by the case of Saumur.
Whether vis-à-vis political parties or the government, a significant number of our countrymen believe that he was not told the whole truth about their attacks occurred in Paris, November 13, 2015 and Nice, July 14, 2016.
In this heavy context, the least we can say is that this strange case of Saumur falls particularly badly.
Is it necessary to emphasize that the mere possession of flags of Daesh by a French military school is a shocking fact.
Sadly, the possession of flags of Daesh by a military school, unexpectedly discovered in a cache located near a church with video material, obviously opens the door to the worst suspicions about preparing operations – or ‘false flags’ by the state.”
