AL QAEDA THE ALLY / AL QAEDA THE ENEMY

The real Osama bin Laden is a Western-trained CIA asset with the declassified code-name “Tim Osman.” He was chosen to lead the Mujahideen / Taliban in Afghanistan, in part, because his wealthy family has been a long-term business partner to key families in the West, including the Bush family (Carlyle Group). In fact, George H. W. Bush, the father, had been meeting with one of Osama bin Laden’s brother on the morning of 9/11. The real Mujahideen has been used for a variety of Western-back political purposes, namely upheaval and destabilization.

Back in 1979, al Qaeda, in the form of the Mujahideen / Taliban, were America’s secret weapon in Operation Cyclone. It was geostrategist Zbigniew Brzezinski, then National Security Advisor under Carter, who schemed to draw the Soviet Union into a trap that might bleed them dry. [Declassifed documents authorizing action A / B]

Brzezinski gave an interview to France’s Le Nouvel Observateur in 1998, unapologetic about their covert aid the Mujahadeen six months before the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan. Here is a segment of that interview:

Q: You don’t regret anything today?
Brzezinski: Regret what? That secret operation was an excellent idea. It had the effect of drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap and you want me to regret it? The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter: We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam war. Indeed, for almost 10 years, Moscow had to carry on a war unsupportable by the government, a conflict that brought about the demoralization and finally the breakup of the Soviet empire.
Q: And neither do you regret having supported the Islamic [integrisme], having given arms and advice to future terrorists?
Brzezinski: What is most important to the history of the world? The Taliban or the collapse of the Soviet empire? Some stirred-up Moslems or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the cold war?
Q: Some stirred-up Moslems? But it has been said and repeated: Islamic fundamentalism represents a world menace today.
Brzezinski: Nonsense!

During the Reagan years, they were Freedom Fighters, public heroes heralding the possibility for democracy to spread overseas in resistance to Communism. Reagan even dedicated the launch of the space shuttle Columbia to the Afghans, in the name of the ‘highest aspirations of freedom.’ In 1985, Ronald Reagan said the men in the Taliban’s ranks were “the moral equivalents of America’s Founding Fathers.” These men were supported openly for a decade as the Soviets met ‘their Vietnam’ in Afghanistan.

Osama bin Laden ran MAK (Maktab al-Khidamat), an organization created by Pakistan’s ISI at the behest of the CIA. It funneled money, weapons, and internationally recruited fighters into the war created in part by Jimmy Carter’s National Security Adviser,Zbigniew Brezinski. Osama was closely tied to the Afghan warlord and ISI stooge Gulbuddin Hekmatyar who ran drugs for the CIA. In the 1980s, emissaries from the United States met with Osama. The CIA paid Osama to train the militant group Abu Sayyaf and others at his CIA-built camps in Afghanistan. In New York, Osama’s MAK operated the CIA-connected al-Kifah Refugee Center that was involved in the 1993 WTC bombing. The U.S. government would later call the al-Kifah charity the “precursor organization to al-Qaeda.”

By the late 80s and early 90s, al-Qaeda “migrated to Bosnia hoping to assist their Islamic brethren in a struggle against Serbian [and for a time] Croatian forces.” Al Qaeda was still a U.S. and Saudi-backed ally circa 1999 that backed the Albanian KLA in terrorist acts in the war-torn Yugoslavian region, even up to the time of NATO’s bombings, despite growing concerns about terrorism. See also: Mega Oil and mujahidin from the Balkans to the Caucasus.

The 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center was exposed to another cruel hoax. In 1993, the F.B.I. became, at best, dangerous enablers as they undertook a “sting” operation to allegedly prove the culpability of the suspects. Even Wikipedia admits that harmless powder was swapped with real bomb material. F.B.I. informant Emad Salem became alarmed at the introduction of real explosives and recorded his conversations with the F.B.I. proving they enabled and allowed the bombing to go forward that killed 4 people.

With Serbia / former Yugoslavia still fresh in the public mind, theUSS Cole was bombed in October 2000 in a Yemeni port. The act of terror against the United States would be blamed on Osama bin Laden, rogue heir to the wealthy family that did & does business with big Western players (like the Carlyle Group).

The 9/11 attacks hit. It was instantly blamed on Osama bin Laden. Endless contradictions to the official government account emerged over the coming hours, days, weeks and years for now almost a decade, without any sign of accountability or truth in the officialdomanywhere in sight. In addition to gross contradictions to the laws of physics in the collapses of WTC towers 1, 2 and7, details came forward about how the accused hijackers were trained at U.S. bases, lived with FBI informants, were given VISAS and let past borders despite being on the watchlists; the hijackers were identified by U.S. intelligence agencies [Able Danger, et. al.], but their warnings were ignored (and much, much more: prior knowledge, warnings, drills, etc., etc., etc.).

While rallying the public behind a war in Afghanistan, and soon in Iraq as well, the Bush Administration clandestinely let members of the bin Laden family quietly fly out of the United States, even while all other flights were grounded. It would be revealed in articles about the “Airlift of Evil,” that U.S. forces also covertly exported Taliban forces from Afghanistan to Pakistan; meanwhile, U.S. soldiers where geared up to search in caves and rugged terrain for a shadowy enemy in the “graveyard of empires“; as of 2011, the deadline for leaving Afghanistan continues to roll back.

As noted earlier, embarrassing leaks emerged casting doubt on the validity of al Qaeda’s jihad against America, as the Bush Administration continued to hype the threat of terror without pause. Controversial measures, including the Constitution-shredding Patriot Act, warrant-less-wiretaps of U.S. citizens, torture (Obama refused to investigate the crimes of the Bush Admin.) and indefinite detention and other devastating attacks on the “hated freedoms” of Americans continued seamlessly under Barack Obama.

Nearly every major terror plot uncovered domestically has, in fact, turned out to be a contrivance by the FBI where it sets-up a sting and encourages its patsies to carry out an attack. The “close calls” on American soil since 9/11 have largely been connected to Anwar al-Awlaki, who it was revealed, dined with Pentagon brass in the months after 9/11. The Underwear Bombing who tried to blow-up a Detroit-bound plane was given VISA clearance by the State Dept. despite being on the watchlist; witnesses Kurt & Lori Haskell watched Abdul-Mutallab being helped on the plane by a “sharp-dressed man” who was most likely an intelligence agent. They also witnessed other suspect/patsies who were never mentioned in the mainstream media. The key questions their verified account raises may never be addressed, as the accused Abdul Mutallab is attempting to represent himself in court. Hoaxes and inconsistencies have been raised around the cases of the Foot Hood shooter, the Times Square bomber and many, many others. Even Geraldo Rivera of Fox News has noted that the FBI’s pattern of sting operations are ‘bogus’.

Homeland Security took on a greater role, imposing absurd and unpopular TSA body scanners and groping pat-downs on travelers. DHS has furthered rolled out checkpoints, mobile x-ray vans on public streets & highways (including pedestrians), on trains, buses and boats, as well as at sport stadiums, hotels and shopping malls and beyond.

In 2011, George Orwell’s “War is Peace” mantra is upgraded once again, as the Nobel Peace Prize winner President Obama expands war into Libya under the Orwellian-guise of a “humanitarian crisis,” imposing a no-fly zone (which immediately gave way to full scale bombings and then ground forces). Americans, Westerners and the world at-large must scratch their heads once again as wars in Iraq and Afghanistan not only continue, but the West finds an unlikely ally against Col. Gaddafi in rebels made up of al Qaeda forces. The Lie has not stopped, as Western intelligence continues to wield one of its most powerful client-weapons– the al Qaeda hoax, invariably friend or foe, as the situation demands. In classic doublethink, the same week the public learns its anti-Gaddafi allies include al Qaeda, over-the-top, grandiose threats are made by mail claiming that al Qaeda has some 160 nuclear bombs buried at strategic locations across the United States; if there’s any truth at all to the claim, you can be certain the nuclear material was delivered via Western intelligence.

The Palestinians never learn   April 1st, 2011 7:27 am ET

This is what the Palestinians and the Arabs around Israel declare one day after the declaration of the state of Israel, before any "occupation":
""This will be a war of exterminat­ion and a momentous massacre which will be spoken of like the Mongolian massacres and the Crusades."
Abdul Rahman Hassan Azzam, Secretary of the Arab League, May 17, 1948”

Now they are complaining about the war results.

Kevin, thank you for supporting our justful Jihad against the infidels, your contribution to us is invaluable!

John A   April 2nd, 2011 1:01 pm ET

CNN why do you refuse to share real news with the American people?

You invade Bahrain. We take out Muammar Gaddafi in Libya. This, in short, is the essence of a deal struck between the Barack Obama administration and the House of Saud. Two diplomatic sources at the United Nations independently confirmed that Washington, via Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, gave the go-ahead for Saudi Arabia to invade Bahrain and crush the pro-democracy movement in their neighbor in exchange for a “yes” vote by the Arab League for a no-fly zone over Libya – the main rationale that led to United Nations Security Council resolution 1973.

The revelation came from two different diplomats, a European and a member of the BRIC group, and was made separately to a US scholar and Asia Times Online. According to diplomatic protocol, their names cannot be disclosed. One of the diplomats said, “This is the reason why we could not support resolution 1973. We were arguing that Libya, Bahrain and Yemen were similar cases, and calling for a fact-finding mission. We maintain our official position that the resolution is not clear, and may be interpreted in a belligerent manner.”

As Asia Times Online has reported, a full Arab League endorsement of a no-fly zone is a myth. Of the 22 full members, only 11 were present at the voting. Six of them were Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) members, the US-supported club of Gulf kingdoms/sheikhdoms, of which Saudi Arabia is the top dog. Syria and Algeria were against it. Saudi Arabia only had to “seduce” three other members to get the vote.

Translation: only nine out of 22 members of the Arab League voted for the no-fly zone. The vote was essentially a House of Saud-led operation, with Arab League secretary general Amr Moussa keen to polish his CV with Washington with an eye to become the next Egyptian President.

aka Alex, Aaron and you managed to edit out Kurt,

If this planet is really so prison-like, perhaps it has not occurred to you that your incarceration is the result of a crime.
A lot of earth-dwellers wouldn't miss your conspiratorial, misleading myths and distortions if you tried to escape.

John A   April 3rd, 2011 12:24 pm ET

As usual Miriam and Proud Zionist can't refute what I write, so they decide not to contribute content and repeat their old mantra of name calling.Don't they realize that when they retreat from the intellectual debate and resort to name calling, they are admitting they are wrong and have no counter argument. But then again we all know Israel and her Zionist supporters can only promote fraud as their ideas are baseless and without justification.

John A   April 4th, 2011 10:11 am ET

MAA, Beaucoup de merci.

Its clear that Nicolas Sarkozy's attacks on Libya do not represent the wishes of the French people, as Obama does not represent the wishes of the Americans.

I think western politician make a big mistake when they call themselves leaders . You hear people like Obama and Sarkozy calling themselves leaders all the time

They are not leaders and their citizens are not supposed to follow them!!! They are public servants and they should only carry out the wishes of their people!!!!!!!

So lets stop calling political figures the leaders of a country and lets use the correct definition to describe their roles "Public Servants".

A democratic renaissance is needed in the west and the west should stop imposing double standards on the rest of the world.

I don't really give a hoot about what you think, espeacially because you could never refute a single fact I present and ignored any time you were caught in your twisted lies and Hamas propaganda

get lost. imbecile

Proud Zionist,

So to be a proud Zionist means not to give a hoot about others and to constantly froth at the mouth when your narrow view on the world is disputed. The name Proud Zionist really is an oxymoron, you have nothing to be proud of.

miriam   April 5th, 2011 9:24 am ET

John A,

The obvious place to start is to refute the fact that you wrote the article.

The names are those of the authors which can be found on any of the various conspiracy web-sites that have reproduced the article.

Conspiracy is all it is.

In classic doublethink, the same week the public learns its anti-Gaddafi allies include al Qaeda, over-the-top, grandiose threats are made by mail claiming that al Qaeda has some 160 nuclear bombs buried at strategic locations across the United States; if there’s any truth at all to the claim, you can be certain the nuclear material was delivered via Western intelligence....

John nazi A

you still talk absolute nonsense.

maybe if you want to be taken seriously, then apologize for your false claim that 1400 civilians were killed in Gaza

that would be a good start, don't you think so?

John A   April 6th, 2011 9:05 am ET

After 3 years of receiving death threats from Jews, Goldstone has retracted his report which indited Israel. He has not provided any documents to justify his change of mind. You think that's credible? haha.

Now you pretend the Israeli army never used depleted uranium shells amongst a civilian population. Zionist you and your mafia buddies are a joke.

As a foot note, the Jews have a long history of committing the original sin and then they claim persecution when they receive retaliation. They have learned nothing from history and will undoubtedly receive a ruthless retaliation at some point for their crimes in Israel.

America is in rapid decline, the next time the Jews learn "what goes around comes around", probably China will be the world super power. So the next time they wont have American Jewish owned media rewriting fake accounts of history to support Zionist crimes.

The Roman empire lasted thousands of years, the British empire lasted hundreds of years. The Zion American empire has lasted 60 years and already crumbles under the weight of its massive corruption. So glow in the sun proud Zionist, while you can. Your days are numbered, so make the most of your opportunity to pervert the goodness in humanity.

A good place for all the dirty anti-Semites to show their ugly heads.

John A   April 6th, 2011 5:45 pm ET

Dear Proud Zionist,

Today Mr Goldstone has clarified his position on the investigation into the Gaza war and Israels horrible war crimes. He said he did not think his report to the UN should be nullified.

Over the weekend he wrote a personal article in the Washington Post in which he said had he known at the time of investigation what he knows now, the report would have been different.

This was interpreted by Israeli leaders and in the media as a retraction of the report.

But today Goldstone said" As presently advised I have no reason to believe any part of the report needs to be reconsidered at this time".

So only Jewish owned media and liars were telling us that Goldstone changed his opinion.

Proud Zionist you have been exposed as a nut job liar once more.

John A   April 6th, 2011 5:52 pm ET

Proud Zionist,
You should try some "cut n pastes" from serious and honest news sites. That way you might present some well considered opinions, instead of spouting your twisted lies and Israeli propaganda.

proud zionist   April 7th, 2011 10:07 pm ET

John nazi A

I proved to you and all that the 1400 civilian death figure in Gaza was a lie

apologize @sshole

John antisemite A

being a proud zionist means not giving a hoot what liares and anisemitic nazis like you think, I thought you knew that nitwit

John A   April 10th, 2011 4:34 pm ET

Oh proud Zionist, It seems nobody has ever explained to you what a Nazi is.

The Nazi party was the name of a political party in Germany. This political party had fascist ideology.

The definition of Fascism is when a Government serves business and not the people. You know, like bank bailouts and tax payers money being given to the military industrial complex, to build bombs and profit from non defensive war.

A country which places the wishes of banks and industry ahead of the wishes of its people is a fascist country.

Thats right, America now exhibits fascist policies. Bail out wall street and to hell with main street. Who is Israels only ally? America.

You see proud Zionist, your only global ally is fascist. You are in bed with fascists. Jews who died in the holocaust would spit in your face as a Zionist traitor to Judaism.

you besmirch the name of a great family, little ignoramus

John A   April 21st, 2011 9:08 pm ET

Proud Zionist you besmirch the name of a great religion called Judaism.

Religion is about Gods work. It is not about capturing land and illegal settlements. Judaism is not about gunning down anyone who can make a justifiable argument for Palestinians to be able to freely live in a land which they have inherited from their ancient ancestors.

Zionist = anti Judaism

Judaism is not about war, foul mouths and finger pointing. Most Israelis are not real Jews and Zionists are anti Judaism.

miriam   May 2nd, 2011 12:24 pm ET

John A,

If you knew anything about the "great religion called Judaism", then you would know and respect the importance that the Land of Israel has in the religion.

Jews are also a people with a history and culture which places The Land of Israel at its centre.

Certainly there may be Palestinians who have ancestry in the Holy Land, however a people who only declared themselves a nation after 1967 and who only then shifted their Arab sponsored ideology from Israel's destruction to Israel's destruction and Palestinian statehood, it is dishonest to claim that they have a superior claim to the land.

Any Palestinian Arab whose ancestors chose to ignore the call from their leaders to leave their homes ahead of the presumed destruction of the Jewish state lives freely in Israel today, in their ancestral homes or in the homes they had inhabited for little more than a few weeks.
