    Excellent article in Playboy:



    The man’s name is Dennis Montgomery, a self-proclaimed scientist who said he could predict terrorist attacks. Operating with a small software development company, he apparently convinced the Bush White House, the CIA, the Air Force and other agencies that Al Jazeera—the Qatari-owned TV network—was unwittingly transmitting target data to Al Qaeda sleepers.


    I can't believe he pulled this shit off.



    He is an unusual man. In court papers filed in Los Angeles, a former lawyer for Montgomery calls the software designer a “habitual liar engaged in fraud.” Last June Montgomery was charged in Las Vegas with bouncing nine checks (totaling $1 million) in September 2008 and was arrested on a felony warrant in Rancho Mirage, California. That million is only a portion of what he lost to five casinos in Nevada and California in just one year. That’s according to his federal bankruptcy filing, where he reported personal debts of $12 million. The FBI has investigated him, and some of his own co-workers say he staged phony demonstrations of military technology for the U.S. government.



    Montgomery has no formal scientific education, but over the past six years he seems to have convinced top people in the national security establishment that he had developed secret tools to save the world from terror and had decoded Al Qaeda transmissions. But the communications Montgomery said he was decrypting apparently didn’t exist.



    Since 1996 the Al Jazeera news network had been operating in the nation of Qatar, a U.S. ally in the war on terror. Montgomery claimed he had found something sinister disguised in Al Jazeera’s broadcast signal that had nothing to do with what was being said on the air: Hidden in the signal were secret bar codes that told terrorists the terms of their next mission, laying out the latitudes and longitudes of targets, sometimes even flight numbers and dates. And he was the only man who had the technology to decrypt this code.




    This is a great article, informative and highly entertaining. It's a little long was definitely worth it.

    No, but he is smart enough to pull off something like that.

    I knew if I mentioned it was in Playboy people all you men would probably click on the link.



    But you know what I couldn't help but think about when I read this? This guy's just like some fucking tweaker, and the CIA and the Defense Department are just tweaked enough themselves to fall under the spell of the mania of this professional paranoid delusional huckster.



    Who falls for this shit? Bar codes in Al Jazeera news broadcasts? The reason, IMO, that 911 worked so well was that it was simple. And the people charged with keeping us safe are looking for bar codes with latitudes and longitudes. What were they thinking?

    Not a save. He really is brilliant enough to be able to pull this off. His problem is that his mind never stops and it comes out in massive posts lol.

    I know exactly what you mean. Did you notice Jess Ventura has started a show called conspiracy theories? It's a bad sign.
