Cockup of the Century: FBI set to name ‘Eye Irritant’ lawn fertilizer as Beirut Bomb material (an intel drop)


…by Gordon Duff, Senior Editor

[ Editor’s Note: An essential part of using a tactical nuclear weapon that some country or party deems necessary, requires sophisticated planning on how the media spin must steer 99.999% of the public’s attention away from the real cause. Why? Because, once determined that a mini-nuke has been used, the perpetrator suspect list is very short, and in the Mideast, lists only one country…Israel.

So I will add, there has been a rumor going around for decades that Israel somehow, mysteriously has huge influence on media worldwide. That full story is for another day.

I mention this now to set up the question, did Israel have people working for it in domestic media in Lebanon? Of course, because it has people working for it everywhere in media.

Then how about the ports?

The answer is of course. It has agents in all the ports of the Mideast to keep an eye on who is smuggling what through those ports, and to make sure it can move anything through them as needed.

Espionage tradecraft would entailed having an immediate cover story for what caused an explosion, with a series of backup plans if needed, as the timing of pulling the trigger on the cover stories and the absolute assurance they will be published determines the success of diverting the cause of the attack in the desired direction.

In Beirut we started with the firecracker diversion, a long slow smokey blaze designed to focus the city’s whole attention, with phone cameras rolling and all eyes horizontal and focused on one specific area, the port. On 9-11 the focus was the first plane strike of the towers.

The fertilizer story was stage two, a manufactured hoax of the fireworks fire building up to the point where it “cooked off” the ammonium nitrate ‘explosive’ material, with the economically stressed Lebanese port management directly in the cross hairs as patsies for the blame.

But there was a problem. The science for the ammonium nitrate bomb was zero, so a media hustle had to be rolled out that ‘everybody knows ammonium nitrate can blow up’, so no explanation as to how it might blow up would be needed, and hence none was supplied. ALL the media reposting that the fireworks set off the fertilizer ‘bomb’ became an unquestioned fact.

But it was not a fact with VT, or any other semi competent intel agency, as you could search for technical information on the web, even if you did not have a Phd organic chemist on retainer. We knew from the start it was a tactical nuke, as we have studied the topic for a decade.

We were looking for the expected cover story in the early hours, because it was one of the bread crumb trails to the real perpetrator. As VT readers know, we burned the fertilizer bomb story down, and no one with a reputation to lose, no government agency or official has challenged us on it, nor have we been spotlighted for our solid reporting.

As punishment for that oversight, Gordon will now pour concrete over the fake cover story via the vastly dangerous operation we have just concluded, never mind the huge expense, of taking a close look at the warning labels on home use fertilizer bags. (Mort de rire)

Please enjoy, and ask yourselves, how could all of the media have rolled over so easily on a totally unsupported cover story?

Furthermore, not a single intelligence agency spotlighted the hoax to demonstrate its expertise… Jim W. Dean ]

VT is happy to supply this top secret intelligence we were able to obtain from one of our deep undercover agents.


Go to your garage and find your bag of ammonium nitrate.  It will say “Lawn Fertilizer” on it. Check to see if a warning is on the label saying “explosive” or “flammable.”  It will not be there and for a very good reason.

Yet, when the media tells you that your lawn fertilizer blew up a city because it “caught fire,” which is impossible, you believed them.  When VT showed you evidence of a nuclear attack, some of you doubted it.  When President Trump said it was a nuclear bomb, I can understand why you would doubt him but why doubt us?

Now, after reading this, for some of you, you will be proven, as we so often do, to be total fucking idiots.

A few days ago, 9 FBI agents were sent to Beirut, Lebanon told to find that ammonium nitrate lawn fertilizer had destroyed the city exactly as though it had been hit with a modern low radiation nuclear weapon.

You see, all lawn fertilizer is N P K, with “N” standing for ammonium nitrate, normally 95% of the bag and “P” for phosphorous  usually non existent and a small amount of “K” for potassium.

Lawn fertilizer is almost 100% ammonium nitrate with cheaper fertilizers using ammonium sulfate.  Both fertilizers can be used to ‘manufacture’ explosives.

If you check the bag of lawn fertilizer you have in your garage, which is relatively pure ammonium nitrate, there will be a warning.  AN is a skin and eye irritant.

However, please note that it is neither flammable nor explosive.

Thus, when garages catch fire, they don’t explode with huge mushroom clouds.  Nor does your lawn explode when it rains after you put fertilizer down.

So, if the FBI tells us that every lawn fertilizer sold in America will explode when either subjected to a spark or flame or if wet, will armies of secret agents be storming our sheds and garages seizing our ability to nuke our own neighborhoods?

Who can make the FBI lie like that?  This is humiliating.

Pixies wrecked my country, I read it in the funny papers and know it is true

We are also told that Lebanese President Michel Aoun is now willing to accept that lawn fertilizer is now both flammable and explosive and that Lebanon may order all sales of varying “Turf Builder” products to be listed as both explosive and “highly exothermic” even though you can’t burn it with a blow torch.

Aoun will be proven to be both a clown and coward.

Next we add, why do so many Americans, seemingly over 200 million, suddenly believe their lawn fertilizer is a threat to national security?

Would Beirut still be standing if they simply labeled the bags “Lawn Fertilizer” instead of “Ammonium Nitrate?”

  1. We have had our attention directed to photographs purported 2B of the bags the AN was in. The bags have a label says NITROPRILL HD which leads me to believe that the bags contain an explosive product which is in essence a mixed fertilizer explosive mixture. The one the Weathermen use on the war computer, and the one Tomothy McVeigh (sp?) purportedly used on the Federal Bldg. In Oaklahoma. City. But the AN blast could be used as cover for something MUCH more powerful. It does not preclude such deception. I imagine NITROPRILL HD is an explosive.. you can Google it and go to the manufactures web. site, which I believe says it’s used for mining. What a twisted tale this blast is leading us on.

  2. Like to see some isotope’s which I believe are inevitable when a fission device goes critical and detonates. Some with very short half lifes. Better t get to Beirut”s ground zero sooner than later.. Let’s get scientists to do a bit of sniffing about there.

  3. When it comes to crowns and religions, and certain militaries, there is a separate tier of justice above the FBI.

    People of the US and the world need to be able to discern this. US agencies are of no use if they cannot separate justice from wishes.

  4. If you google Nitroprill HD you can find a picture that shows large basket shaped bags with Nitro pill H D printed on them stacked in what looks like a storage place.I suppose this is supposed to be the place the 2750 metric tons of what has been referee to as AN in 1 ton bags that were stored in warehouse 12 at the port. Of course this could be misinformation, but if you continue to look at the search results it turns out this stuff looks like it’s an explosive which requires a blasting cap or other shock to detonate. More checking of thsee bags & story needed, but an interesting start.

  5. John

    Do not keep fertilizer and petroleum stored near each other as there are ways of causing a bad accident which I will not go into here.

  6. First, the public mind set has to be conditioned to believe the fact (bogus) that Ammonium Nitrate is an explosive, hence the OKC bombing narrative that passed muster then… but was debunked by late Brig. Gen. Be Partin, which debunk was of course ignored by the MSM.

    Secondly, Israel has hijacked almost a big chunk of the security agencies in the US, Surely ALL that pertains to airports though. If for airports, why not for maritime ports also ? If in the US, why not in the world also ? and why not in Lebanon too ?

    If Lebanon security agency was an Israel offshoot, nothing more easy then to set up the crime scene !

    Third, there were two events in Beirut port : first, the “smoke screen”, then the explosion (nuclear) !

    We have NO evidence at all that the smoke screen was an explosion for a start. It could well be only a few bags of Ammonium Nitrate set ablaze by some fireworks introduced onsite by unknown party to give a pretext to the official narrative that would use it in avoidance of explaining the coming real explosion.

    Indeed, the first smoke plume was the consequence of what ? an explosion ? NOTHING nowhere proved that as I know of. NO video captures on the web proves that, at my knowledge so. What we see though are small firecracker like explosions at the base of the plume. Why not real firecrackers that set ablaze a few bags of Ammonium Nitrate ? It a credible good cover up for the coming nuke bombing isn’t it ?

    • There is something worth knowing. Flour isn’t an explosive at all. Put a match in on a heap of cooking flour and you’ll see. But if you dustify the heap by blowing over it and put a match in the dust, please do it outside, NOT in the kitchen.

      I’m stretching the envelope but *if* some explosives were hidden in ‘hypothetical’ Ammonium Nitrate bags and detonated in order to dustify the content then set it ablaze, I wonder what result we would have ? An experiment to be performed. I should be very interesting…

      Finally, I’m really going on a limb here: the amount of AN is claimed to have been 2750 tons. We know that the fundamental cabalists are heavily involved deep into numerology. The two first numbers here are 27 that is an inversion of 72, one of the fundamental number in the Cabala since it represents the 72 genies/demons/angels/whatever in the Cabala corpus… Just a thought.

    • I said Israel had hijacked ALL US airports security facilities. I maybe have been too categorical. Let say… many major American airports; ALL involved in 911 most certainly though…

  7. The world might be simpler if Tel Aviv was nuked , seems like a simple solution to me, as that might slow Israeli aggression globally and meddling in the media and in the affairs of a multitude of other countries.

  8. Call me stupid but why were nukes been created when fertilizer is enough to flatten whole cities and ports ?

  9. I stumbled across the suggestion that the nuke used in Beirut (and the one in Syria back in January) was a W76 mod 2 from the submarine USS Tennessee. It was briefly mentioned in No Agenda Episode 1270 but I dug up this writeup in the notes for Episode 1269 under “Circumstantial evidence indicates these were W76-2 nukes from the sub Tennessee”:,1078

    The alarming implication is that maybe 50 tactical nukes were handed over last January to your friendly neighborhood IDF by the mutinous or treasonous crew of a US ballistic missile submarine. Oh, and that they have four dozen more of these fresh suitcase nukes. Not cool! Could this be?

  10. If Lebanese authorities don’t call this nuclear attack then they might as well join a Bush & Cheney fan club, cause they are not worthy of more. Already they are overdue, but there is still hope. Monkeys in the 21st century refuse to witness a nuclear attack, while throwing flowers on Hiroshima monuments. Someone should whisper to Aoun that SADAKO WANTS TO LIVE..

    • They are the authorities over a sinking ship economically. The country has been hollowed out financially and is and classic example of divided and conquer. That said, since the lase time they got their asses kicked, with a poor army and novice leaders they have only done bombing.

  11. Just as in the Bali mini nuke explosion, leaving a swimming pool sized hole, to convince gullible Aussies to switch from opposing the illegal invasion of Iraq to supporting it.
    The FBI (Federal Bureau of Israel) was in Bali within 12 hours, which is impossible without foreknowledge, even the media in Indonesia was complaining, “What are they doing here?” Looking for evidence or hiding it.

  12. Just as the MSM won’t touch this, so too, the limited hangout alternative news media won’t touch it either. I’ve been banned from commenting on at least 2 alternative news sites for suggesting that the official version of the Beirut blast is total BS. Simply put, it had to be a nuke as that would be the only explosive device that could have possibly “left a 43-meter (141 foot) deep crater” in solid rock where warehouse 12 used to stand. That little detail was put out by the Times of Israel, mind you. Maybe the FBI missed that in their so-called investigation.

  13. We still have no solid proof that AN or a nuclear device was responsible as far as I am concerned. I lean away from AN as the cause for reasons of poor mixing & or evaporation/migration of fuel plus huge job to mix. But all speculation aside, if nuclear it seems there would be broken eggs, in this case element’s which Would leave isotopes I believe, melted rock or some other things that shout “nuclear” event, unless GASP, it was a fusion event triggered by a non-fission initiation. Can anyone comment on my take…????? If the fusion is the cause, that opens up a new chapter in the possible terrorists arsenal.

    • I am not sure any of us have a remote idea what you are saying. Do you mean to say that someone may have brought in 50,000 barrels of heavy crude, mixed them, and then set 4 tons of TNT to set it off with no one noticing? OK, that’s possible.
