Lost passport

The lost passport, regularly left at the crime scene by purported terrorists, has puzzled truthers for decades. It’s an open secret that intelligence services can order as many real passports with fake IDs as they want, so they’re a favorite spook toy. But as usual, it may be also a pun: Hebrew אבד ˀbd for “losing” puns with בדא bdˀ for “inventing”, so whenever a spook “loses” his ID card, it may mean that the identity itself is “invented”. As for fake terrorists, Hebrew אבד דרכן ˀbd-drkn for “losing a passport” may even pun with בדא טרכן bdˀ-ṭrkn for “inventing trouble”.

Semitic ˀbd for “losing”, bdˀ for “inventing” things

Several Semitic words are possible to mean “lost”, “left” or “forgotten”. One that is particularly suited for a hoaxed event pun is אבד ˀbd for “losing” & “disappearing”. It’s used in Biblical language for the perishing of entire nations, but also in modern Hebrew for simply losing one’s purse. A similar spelling בדא bdˀ (both near-homonymous and an anagram), means “inventing” & “concocting” things, usually meant in a bad way. Since fake terrorists are invented, that’s likely the word the spooks had in mind for the “lost passport” pun: A “lost” ID is an “invented” identity. Yet another similar spelling is עבד ˁbd for “acting”, which also means “enacting a part”, such as a fake identity.

Semitic & Greek ṭrk for “trouble”

In the context of fake terror, there’s an even better pun: drkwn for “passport” puns with Greek / Aramaic ṭrkn for “troublemaker”. It is related to Greek τᾰρᾰχή tarakhe for “trouble” & “disturbance”. It is an epithet of Satan, and likely the pun behind the dragon (that’s why Satan is called “the dragon”). So, while this is a cross-language term, it seems to have been very popular with the spooks.

“passes for a terrorist”

A lame secondary spook pun may be a phrase like “he passes for a terrorist”, which puns with the terrorist passport in various modern European languages.
