9/11 Truther Behind NFL Dirty Bomb Scare

UPDATE: 10/19. Hold the phone. We found an even earlier instance of the same "threat". It is from Oct. 3rd. It's at this website. The poster is listed simply as "Australia". The text is precisely the same as the one circulating in the media (cited below) and which started the entire "scare". So, our original inclination to believe this has been circulating the web for some time seems to be correct. We have a screenshot, just in case the website goes down.

In any event, it is still a truther conspiracy nut that was behind it.

--------------------

The Jawa Report can reveal the original dirty bomb threat against the NFL made by a 9/11 conspiracy 'truther'. Full text below.

The threat was made by a person calling themselves 'javness' on September 19th Oct. 12th (the thread was started on Sept 19th) at a now defunct website (cache here, backup screenshot here).

My original post about the NFL dirty bomb scare is here, but I decided to dedicate another one to the 'truther' angle since some on the Left are now 'questioning the timing'.
UPDATE: Surprise, Paul Begala questions the timing.

The threat comes in the middle of a thread titled "new attack on america be afraid" in which an al Qaeda warning about a dirty bomb attack to Pakistani journalist Hamid Mir is discussed. Various people discuss the possibility of U.S. involvement in "false flag" operations.

Then, 'javness' posts the following:

On Sunday, October 22nd, 2006, there will be seven "dirty" explosive devices detonated in seven different U.S. cities; Miami, New York City, Atlanta, Seattle, Houston, Oakland and Cleveland. The death toll will approach 100,000 from the initial blasts and countless other fatalities will later occur as result from radioactive fallout.

The bombs themselves will be delivered via trucks. These trucks will pull up to stadiums hosting NFL games in each respective city. All stadiums to be targeted are open air arenas, excluding Atlanta's Georgia Dome, the only enclosed stadium to be hit. Due to the open air, the radiological fallout will destroy those not killed in the initial explosion. The explosions will be near simultaneous, with the cities specifically chosen in different time zones to allow for multiple attacks at the same time.

The 22nd of October will mark the final day of Ramadan as it would fall in Mecca. Al-Qaida will automatically be blamed for the attacks. Later, through Al-Jazeera, Osama bin Laden will issue a video message claiming responsibility for what he dubs "America's Hiroshima".

In the aftermath civil wars will erupt across the world, both in the Middle East and within the United States. Global economies will screech to a halt. General chaos will rule.

Thus, the 'threat' was actually a conspiracy nut who claims the U.S. government will be behind the dirty bomb plot and then lay the blame on al Qaeda. Al Qaeda will be more than willing to accept the blame.

As Ace would say, layers.

But for the truthers, this is just too much. They challenge 'javness' to cite sources. 'Javness' replies:

you already know too much
In another thread 'Javness' quips:
George Bush doesn't care about black people.
Layers

Even though the guy is clearly a Leftwing nut, somehow the Right and George Bush will be blamed. That's kind of a given.
