The recent Daesh videos that seemingly threaten bomb attacks on major US cities are part of a psychological warfare American politicians are waging against their own people to advance their post-9/11 agenda, says a US Army veteran.
“Any claim to lead an attack against New York and the White House really is false, and it is really designed just to trigger a reaction among the American people,” Scott Bennett told Press TV on Monday.
“This really is not a threat, it is really not anything rather than a black flag preparation, it is a psychological warfare tactic employed to soften and drive fear into the American citizens,” he maintained.
Bennett, a former US Army psychological warfare officer, said this plan benefits the US government and other supporters of Daesh, who are using the terrorists as “mercenaries” in exchange for training and equipment.
In the aftermath of the November 13 coordinated attacks in the French capital, Paris, that killed 132 people, several videos have surfaced showing alleged members of Daesh in Syria and Iraq preparing for bomb attacks on various US cities.
In one of the videos, the extremist militants hail the vicious Paris attacks, pledging to “grill” US President Barack Obama and French President Francois Hollande.
