Nine Questions About the Paris Attacks

Kevin Ryan blogs at Dig Wituin.

Mainstream media are busily promoting a familiar narrative for last week’s terrorist attacks in Paris. As usual this narrative demonizes Islam, calls for a reduction in civil rights, and bolsters existing military aggressions. However, a growing number of serious questions have arisen about the attacks. Until such questions are answered, citizens must consider that these events might be another pretext for an ongoing political agenda.

The Paris attacks are reported to have occurred in two parts. The first was the January 7th shooting of twelve people in and around the offices of Charlie Hebdo, a tabloid that often published offensive cartoons including some about the Prophet Mohammad. The second attack occurred the next day and was said to be the work of Amedy Coulibaly, a 32-year old Senegalese Frenchman who began shooting police officers at the scene of an accident and then took hostages in a Kosher grocery.

10898227_10152491412137471_728758766975523225_nSome parts of the story have already proven to be inaccurate. For example, FOX News and NBC falsely reported that two of the suspects were in custody, based on information from “two consistently reliable U.S. counterterrorism officials.” One 18-year old widely reported to be a suspect turned himself in (145 miles away) and was released 50 hours later due to insurmountable contradictions.

Questions that remain unanswered include the following.

  1. The Charlie Hebdo gunmen, identified by police as brothers Cherif and Said Kouachi, were said to display professional training as if they were highly-skilled Special Operations soldiers. They were calm and controlled, well equipped, and well trained. Exactly where did they get their training and high-tech equipment?
  1. Coulibaly was identified by DNA testing in only two hours. Although rapid DNA tests can be performed in a matter of hours, a match requires DNA from the suspect. How did the testing match this man in such a short time? Did authorities have his DNA or was it already in a database? In either case, how did that happen?
  1. Videos quickly showed two people in the Hebdo getaway car with one in the driver’s seat. Why did authorities name and interrogate a third suspect (who turned out to not be involved) as the getaway car driver?
  1. Why would the Koachi brothers wear balaclavas (i.e. ski masks) to hide their identity and then simply leave Said’s national ID card in the car? If they took the time to hide their faces, why would they bring their IDs with them?
  1. Why did the masked attackers work to make sure they were quickly portrayed as Muslims and members of al Qaeda during the attacks? Witnesses said one shouted to onlookers—”Tell the media it was al-Qaeda in Yemen.” Other videos and reports indicate that they repeatedly shouted “Allahu Akbar” and proclaimed that they were avenging the Prophet Mohammad. Who benefits from this?
  1. How did the attackers escape (to the northeast—the longest route through Paris) despite the police having raised the “alarm level for the greater Paris area to its highest level.” Did they have logistical support?
  1. Why does the video of the shooting of victim Ahmed Merabet, reportedly killed by a shot to the head, suggest that he was not shot in the head?
  1. How did Helric Fredou die? A Paris police commissioner conducting the investigation, Fredou died while preparing a report on the crimes. And why did Western media not report his death for at least three days?
  1. The alleged Kosher grocery gunman, Amedy Coulibaly, met with the President of France just a few years ago. What are the odds of such a coincidental meeting and does the connection relate to the attacks?

Many people have become skeptical about mainstream accounts of terrorism. This is due to the fact that authorities, like the FBI or CIA, are often found to be involved in some way and the events always support political agendas. Therefore it is not surprising to hear people claiming that intelligence agencies were involved in these attacks, or that the attacks related to political manipulations that would “shore up France’s vassal state status to Washington.”

Whatever the truth, it seems wise to consider all possibilities when mainstream media promote stories that feed the war machine and reduce freedom. Refraining from judgment until the facts are clearer is always the best approach.

    Answer to #1.

    Anybody who says the gunmen displayed professional training is a complete idiot. They displayed no such thing. In fact, they clearly displayed they were novices in handling a gun. They did shoot a very tight pattern on a car windshield – that didn’t really appear to be real.

    2. Good catch – of course it’s impossible to confirm DNA in 2 hours. Even if you had everything perfectly lined up to do so it would be impossible.

    Let’s skip to 7

    Because if you answer 7, you understand the whole thing is a hoax and nothing after that matters – not a bit

    I’m not sure what the motivation on this is – but this is a 100% fake event – beginning to end. I don’t know if anybody got shot and killed or not, but if they did.

    And the real terrorists in the world are the perpetrators of this Hoax. They are inhuman. They need to be hunted down and brought to justice.

  • Ken

    Yes, lets look at 7 The whole thing took a few seconds and depending on where the round of ammunition entered or didn’t enter the head, you might or might not have blood or a gaping hole. Take a look at this Depending on where it entered, it could have gone through the skull and down through the body. If the body had protective gillet then there would be no leakage of blood for some time. This happened…believe it happened and stop looking for a conspiracy. The whole thing qs done by incompetent Islamists…forget the CIA look to Mecca

    • james

      There was no bullet hole, because there was no bullet.

      There are multiple proof points: 1. No blood – no blood on the guy, around the guy or out of his head. 2. No spent cartridge. You would see the spent cartridge come out of the gun and probably hear it hit the pavement. 3.No o mark on the concrete. At that range, from an AK, there would be a huge blast out of the pavement, whether the bullet went through the guy or not.

      Sorry folks. No bullets, no shooting. No shooting, no death. No death, then it’s all a hoax. And without any doubt there were no bullets.

      Those who perpetrated the hoax are the real terrorists.

    This incident has all the earmarks of a staged ‘false flag’ event, like so many other recent catastrophie’s. Questioning the proffered series of events does not make you a conspiracy theorist.

    Jan 7, 2015 Gun Attack on French Satirical Magazine

    A manhunt is underway in Paris, where earlier today three masked gunmen attacked the offices of French satirical magazine ‘Charlie Hebdo’. At least 12 people were killed, including the magazine’s editor and two police officers.

    • james

      Want more proof the videos are staged?

      Stop the first video at exactly 31 seconds. The shot is centered on the car parked in the street.

      Notice the car is parked on “crosshairs” in the street. One sticking out from the front of the car, and one sticking out the side. These are equivalent to “stage marks” that an actor stands on in a play.

      How do I know – rewind the video to the beginning where the actors are just getting out of the car and the “shootout” begins.

      The center mark is there, but the side mark has been photoshopped out of the video!!!
      In this version it’s a little hard to see, because of the news footer. Just go back to the original to confirm what I say.

      Notice also they edit out the guy shooting blanks toward the officer’s head and him lowering his head slowly and playing dead.

      • daniel

        The spots have been identified as the fixing of the road. What seems to be crosshairs is fixed cracks in the road.

        • james

          Oh now I understand, they fixed the road while a shootout was going on in street? Laughable.

          You see, the sideways mark didn’t exist in the beginning of the video, but clearly exists in the end.

          This suggests one of two things: either the clip was edited to take the line out of the beginning and they forgot to take it out of the end, or as I have read elsewhere, they had to do two takes of the “scene’ and move the car in between, so they marked the road so the car would return to the same spot.

          Either way that is 100% undeniable proof that the video is a hoax. Of course you could just look for the spent cartridges that are not being ejected from the gun to determine also that it is a hoax.

          If you are on here arguing that the video is real you are either: 1 an idiot, with no logic skills or 2. A terrorist – because you are promoting a fake terrorist event – probably for pay. Think about that for a minute. If you know what’s really going on in this video and you are still promoting it as the truth – then you actually are the terrorists – not somebody else. You…

          • James

            I’m sure they were markers. I don’t think they would resort to photoshopping again – not after 7/7!…

            It wouldn’t be so difficult for someone to go down there and see what those lines are made of – that’s if the lines are still there…

        The Charlie Hebdo Affair: How to Demonize Islam and Destroy Christianity!

  • Sunny
  • John Doe II

    The brothers went to Yemen in early 2011. According to one brother talking on the phone to BMFTV it was there that Al Awaki gave them the order to till Charlie Hebdo (Al Awaki was killed in late 2011).
    Please note that several points show that these guys were not very professional. (They didn’t know the correct house number. They claim not to kill women (and saved on purpose one inside Charlie) but killed one female journalist. They claimed only to kill people who are part of Charlie Hebdo and responsible (therefore saving all people after they left Pars even the owner of the printing office) but they killed cleaner in the entrance of Charlie.

    No. It was Coulibaly who was identified by DNA (and also by eyewitnesses!). A stain of DNA existed because Coulibaly spent three years in prison. He left the prison a couple of months ago. In prison he got to know at least one brother.


    This was based on one (and only one eye witness). For example the person whose car was taken by the brothers (as all other people who meet them on the way) speak of two people.


    We can only speculate on this. (And it is certainly less surprising than Al Suqami …)

    Was it on purpose?

    Was it an accident (an ID is very useful if you want to flee and to not to have trouble by a police control on the way to Rue Nicolas Appert).


    They also told this people who survived inside Charlie Hebdo (Coco for example). They apprently wanted to make sure people understand that it was a revenge for the cartoons of Charb (when they entered the room they asked his name and wanted the person to get up (so apparently they didn’t know how he looked like).


    Once you’re on the peripherique (highway around inner Paris) it is hard to follow. There was no police nearby. But police never lost track as they in the late afternoon it was clear that the brothers were in teh area of Aines. (Even a support wouldn’t help by the way once you’re close at the peripherique of Paris)


    I belivee the reaon for the absence of blood is the fact that he was shot at very close range (if you want to see blood take a look at the images from inside Charlie Hebdo ….)


    The shooting happened on the bvd Richard Lenoir. This is a big street (two car lines in both direction and small park inbetween. Surrounded very close by buildings with 5-6 floors. So, please, after a shooting there are within a minute lots of witnesses on the ground. How can you stage a shooting there ??? And what sense would it have?? (The only thing strange ist that there was no traffic at that moment)

    Helric Fredou died reportedly by shooting himself in his office in Limoges. Limoges is 4 hours away from Paris. He was not a high up in the investigation. France is extremely centralized country and of course all important people for this investigation are in Paris at the moment. He interviewed the familiy of the victims. (I can understand suspicion if he interviewed witnesses but families of the victims?) And also he replaced a guy in Limoges who shot himself two years ago. He was claimed to have been in depression.

    Again problem that only headlines are translated into English. He was part of 9 (!) workers at Coca Cola where Sarkozy spend a visit and Sarkozy talked to the 9 (!) briefly.

    Hope this helps.
    That it is a big question if these guys were pushed by a mole is a totally different issue by the way. But it far too early to come to a conclusion there.

    As the political thugs that run Urupp for the Anglozionazi banksters led the throngs of sheeple through Paris, Neocon Nuland’s Putsch NAZI from Kiev, Porky Poroshenko, marched in lockstep with the €uronazis. How very appropriate.

    Shooting up “journalists” that spread hatred and racism against downtrodden Muslims on a weekly basis is not kosher yet shelling your own people and slaughtering up to 5 thousand and destroying the homes of a million is a “shared European value”.

    Good morning, Mr. President. I’m a representative of the shadow government that put you into power. Did you ever wonder how we keep people fighting with each other? Or obeying our silly rules? Or actually loving their captors and slavemasters? This morning we’re going to brief you on just that. Are you ready to begin?

  • Arlene Lane

    I wonder if French president Holland knew that this was really an ISRAELI MOSSAD HIT JOB and that is why he did not want NETENYAHU to be there, and make no mistake about it this creature NETENYAHU is the real HANNIBAL LECTOR he will eat your very soul and those of his friends and relatives if it served his purpose.

  • Daisee

    Coulibaly was in prison, they had his DNA.

  • jhodgski

    Excellent article – and extremely well balanced.

    It might be worth adding that the additional ‘marker’ that appears on the ground beside the car when the gunmen return to it – indictating it was done in more than one take. (You need to see the HD version of the video (on liveleak) to see this clearly. It’s definitely a real line on the road because you can see the colour of it change as the car door is shut, no longer shadowing it.)

    Also, the policeman being shot multiple times (inc. one to the head from point blank) with no wound or blood.

    And, lastly, Sky News reporter, Ian Woods, saying the blood that was later seen on the pavement has been “put there”.

    Oh, and the footage taken from the rooftop which has been edited, casting severe doubt about it’s authenticity.

    maps location, the marks like you guys saying cuz it staged? kidding me.. just parking marks. Look on location on the road.
