OKLAHOMA CITY – Just as the 9/11-esque pilot episode of The X-Files spinoff The Lone Gunmen would be singled out as evidence of “predictive
programming,” one familiar with 9/11 lore could not help but do a double-take
during Sunday night’s airing of the incredibly interesting and entertaining Masterpiece
Theatre/BBC  program Sherlock.

This 21st-century take on Arthur Conan
Doyle’s famous detective Sherlock Holmes (played convincingly by Benedict
Cumberbatch) has aired only four episodes so far and on Sunday night audiences
were treated to the winding and somewhat confounding (and synchronistic) fourth
episode titled “A Scandal in Belgravia.”

Belgravia is a reference to the district in London
where Buckingham Palace is located. In the Sherlock
episode (a reference to Doyle’s story “A Scandal in Bohemia”) compromising
photos involving a female member of the British Royal Family are taken with a clever dominatrix named Irene Adler (Lara Pulver).

As the story progresses and Holmes helps Adler, he
cracks a code on her phone which includes information she stole from a Ministry
of Defense official who came to see her. The coded information, which is given
over to Holmes in order to see if he can crack the code (he does so rather
easily), is accessed and reveals an airline seat number. Adler, meanwhile, is
attempting to seduce Holmes and while this is happening British government officials
forcibly take him to an airport where a plain, white jumbo jet airliner is
parked. Taken aboard, Holmes sees all of the seats have people in them – people
who are dead.

The scene is rather startling. As Sherlock Holmes
realizes what is taking place, that his cranky insider brother Mycroft Holmes (Mark Gatiss) and
the UK government were going to allow a bomb to go off (classic "false flag terrorism") on a “ghost plane” and
blame it on “terrorists” (arch-nemesis Moriarty?). The people appear to be
dead, and actually are referenced earlier in the episode.

As the Sunshine
blog notes about this scene: “But while Sherlock is congratulating himself on his superior
brain, Adler is texting someone. Who? Moriarty of course. Cos she was the one
who called him away from the swimming pool. Moriarty then texts Mycroft. Why?
Because he was the one who was going to
blow up the plane
and yet now knows that the Defence knew this. Mycroft
Holmes and his government people had been arranging to set up the plane with
already dead people so that the terrorists (Moriarty – played by Andrew Scott)
would not know that the government had been intercepting his messages and knew
how to get to him. They would let him and the world think that the terrorists
had blown up a plane of living people. But
they would have only killed people who were already dead
. And then the next
time they would catch Moriarty before he did any real damage.

It's true that the government's efforts were thwarted. But it still puts it into the public mind that secret activities designed to manipulate us are far more common than we are led to believe.

For those who have
researched the mysteries surrounding 9/11, including the deeper questions
regarding the passengers and what happened to them that horrific day, this
scene in Sherlock is haunting.
Anti-war activist and author Mike Palecek, in his 2010 book Guests Of the Nation, addresses the topic of the U.S.
government arranging for the passengers aboard Flight 93 to be taken to a
different airport (Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, perhaps?) and killed. Plenty of forums have addressed this disturbing angle of the 9/11 tale and seeing the dead bodies of "passengers" aboard the CIA/MI5 "ghost plane" - a government-sanctioned prop for a false-flag terror event - was a reminder that we don't know what really went down over a decade ago.

And, we should note, the flight number of the "Flyaway Airways" jet in the Sherlock episode "A Scandal in Belgravia" was 007. A reference to Ian Fleming's fictitious spy James Bond? A "license to kill," perhaps? Or was it a reference to KAL 007, "shot down" over the Soviet Union's Sakhalin Island on Sept. 1, 1983 as it was flying to Seoul, South Korea. Aboard the plane was arch-conservative, anti-Communist and John Birch Society supporter U.S. Rep. Larry McDonald (D-Ga.). Many conspiracy theories have been shared about the downing of KAL 007 including a theory that the aircraft crash landed and there were survivors - possibly including Congressman McDonald - who were taken to Soviet prison camps. It is suggested that the late U.S. Sen. Jesse Helms (R-N.C.), a ranking minority member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, sought information from Russian Pres. Boris Yeltsin about KAL 007 and if the crash-landing-and-survival theory was true. Was the Sherlock episode alluding to this event? 

This episode of Sherlock first aired on the BBC on 1 January
2012, almost exactly two years after Nigerian “terrorist” Umar Farouk
(aka “The Underwear Bomber”) allegedly tried to take down a Northwest
Airlines flight flying between Amsterdam and Detroit. And while Abdulmutallab
was sentenced to life in prison in February, we still can’t forget the
information two passengers aboard that flight, Kurt and Lori Haskell, shared
with the world – that the Underwear Bomber was escorted aboard the flight in
Amsterdam – sans passport - by a “smartly-dressed” Indian man, according to

Explosives were sewn in Abdulmutallab’s underwear
and failed to ignite in the way he anticipated. PETN, which is what the
substance was, “is a highly explosive, colorless crystalline organic compound from
the same chemical family as nitroglycerin and is the same substance “shoe
bomber” Richard Reid attempted to use in his efforts to “blow up a
trans-Atlantic flight in 2001, according to Britain’s Independent newspaper. Who really gave Abdulmutallab the PETN? 

Abdulmutallab claims Al-Qaeda directed him to blow
up the plane. Interestingly, Britain’s MI5 was aware of Abdulmutallab and his
extremist links to an east London mosque. 

Again, in the Sherlock
episode “A Scandal in Belgravia,” the flight would have been between London
Heathrow and Baltimore. Baltimore seemed like an interesting choice. Following
a hunch, Red Dirt Report went to to see what city is between Baltimore and Detroit (a distance of
nearly 400 miles). As it turns out, Pittsburgh, Pa. is right between the two
cities. Not far from Pittsburgh is Shanksville, Pa., - 81 miles, in fact - where
United Flight 93 allegedly plummeted into the ground, hardly leaving a trace of its existence. But stories on Sept. 11,
2001 say that Flight 93 actually landed in another city between Detroit and
Baltimore – Cleveland, Ohio – and that according to Cleveland Mayor Michael R.
White a “Boeing 767 out of Boston made an emergency landing due to a bomb
threat.” If that really happened, what became of the airplane? Of the passengers and crew? It's a scary thought. Writer Mike Palecek suggests the passengers - role players? - were taken off the plane and eliminated, possibly in the NASA Glenn Research Center. Note this collection of information about the "Cleveland Airport Mystery," itself, worthy of a Sherlock Holmes mystery.

And the day after “A Scandal in Belgravia” aired on
American television, another example of predictive programming takes place when
American officials claim that they had thwarted another – and more
sophisticated – “Underwear Bomber”-styled plot that would have been used on a “civilian
aircraft” around the anniversary of Osama bin Laden’s death. Note this Alex Jones Infowars piece "Underwear Bomber 2: Return of the Patsy."

And now the "ringleaders" of the 9/11 attacks (not the ones you are thinking of) are being arraigned at a military tribunal at Guantanamo Bay. 

All the while, we see "Guantanamo's 9/11 show trials" taking place as all this is going on. To think that a Sherlock episode coincides with these trials and the CIA claiming they foiled a plot to blow up a US-bound jetliner is evidence to this writer that the US and allied governments are not giving up their totalitarian behavior anytime soon. They will continue amping up the security alerts and terror warnings and perhaps even shift it to more "domestic terrorism" as they go after regular Americans who are seeking to protect themselves from the very government that wants to end their way of life. Note the arrested members of the Florida paramilitary group arrested this week, as noted in the Orlando Sentinel. And that, of course, falls in line with the "Neo-Nazi and border vigilante" JT Ready in Arizona, who "carried out a mass murder suicide near Phoenix," according to Talking Points Memo.

Back to Sherlock and "A Scandal in Belgravia." While it may be hard to follow at times, plot-wise, there is a lot going on and we suspect they BBC and the writers are allowing us to see hints of what the elite are really up to, just as we witnessed in that March 2001 episode of The Lone Gunmen - six months before the 9/11 attacks. 

With that in mind, we urge you to read Shepard Ambellas' latest Intel Hub article "America 2012: Suicide Bombers Around Every Corner?" With increasing numbers of stories about "terror plots," courtesy of "white Al Qaeda," expect those TSA checkpoints to get increasingly more intrusive and uncomfortable. 

UPDATE (5/8/12 @ 6:43 p.m.): Within an hour or so of posting this Red Dirt Report article, we see that, according to The Washington Post, "(t)he latest Al Qaeda bomb plot targeting U.S. aircraft was unraveled from inside the terrorist group by operatives - including a double-agent - working on behalf of the CIA ..." Seems as though our synchromystic senses were tingling for a reason ...
