In Russia there is an old saying, ‘The first time is an accident. The second time is a coincidence. The third time is an enemy attack.’
Keep this old saying in mind while you consider the story of the 19-year-old Mormon missionary from Utah by the name of Mason Wells who, in an unfortunate string of ‘accidents’ and ‘coincidences,’ found himself at the epicentre of the West’s last three major terror attacks, spread across three cities and two continents on different sides of the world.
That’s right, young Mason found himself at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, in the firing line in Paris when it was under attack, and has now popped up in Brussels, where he appeared in the news with bandages on his face covering what he said were serious burns.
Now I may not be a mathematician, but I’d say the odds of that happening to one person are literally astronomical.
Is it likely that Mason found himself at the site of the last three terror attacks ‘accidentally’ and ‘coincidentally’ or is there more chance he works for an intelligence agency such as the CIA? Do not forget that CIA agents in Russia and Ukraine were exposed in 2013 disguised as Mormon missionaries.
The FBI also has a long history of recruiting heavily from the Mormon population in America.
Mason would be far from the first clean-cut, innocent-looking Mormon receiving a high salary from a corrupt US government agency.
Germany’s Die Welt news outlet first reported the fact that the same Mormon missionary was seen at the Boston Marathon attack, as well as the Paris and Brussels attacks.
Die Welt did not use the term ‘crisis actor’ to describe the high profile involvement of Mormon Mason in all three terror attacks, but the way the report is written implies that the likelihood of the same person being involved in all three attacks on different sides of the world is close to zero.
But let’s not jump to conclusions. Maybe Mason really is a regular 19 year old guy who can’t help popping up in the wrong place at the wrong time. Maybe it’s his Mormon ‘magic underwear’ that saves him.
Maybe, but maybe not. Don’t forget the old Russian saying, ‘The first time is an accident. The second time is a coincidence. The third time is an enemy attack.’ And don’t forget this young man’s face.
