America caught funding al-Qaeda, from day 1 to now, the history of deceit

America caught funding al-Qaeda, from day 1 to now, the history of deceit

By Dark Politricks

Most people who haven’t had their heads up their asses for the last decade have realised that something wasn’t quite right concerning our supposed “mortal enemy” al-Qaeda.

For those citizens soaked in mainstream propaganda and believers of everything the government says, al-Qaeda is the new Soviet Union.

They are North Korea and Iran combined with the possibility of a dirty nuke or two thrown into the mix.

They were the architects of 9.11 and the reason we have been at war for the past decade.

They are the reason some people are willing to give their lives fighting for “freedom” in Afghanistan or Iraq.

However for those people who know some history they have never been too far away from our intelligence agencies control. As Robin Cook the ex UK Home Secretary informed us after the London bombings in an article he wrote for the Guardian. Al-Qaeda are nothing more than a creation of the CIA.

“Bin Laden was, though, a product of a monumental miscalculation by western security agencies. Throughout the 80s he was armed by the CIA and funded by the Saudis to wage jihad against the Russian occupation of Afghanistan. al-Qaeda, literally “the database”, was originally the computer file of the thousands of mujahideen who were recruited and trained with help from the CIA to defeat the Russians. ” – Robin Cook, The Guardian, 2005

Created as a pawn by Zbigniew Brzezinski to play on his Grand Chessboard. Al-Qaeda, or as they were known back then, the Mujahideen, were a group of CIA funded Islamic “freedom fighters” who were fighting the USA’s proxy war against the USSR during the 80’s. Designed to draw the Soviet Union into their very own Vietnam and sap the strength and morale from the conscript army, the clash of civilisations was never meant to be the west versus Islam but the atheist communists fighting the huge swathes of Islamic people contained within their old borders.

The Afghan war certainly did as the USA wanted and a decade was spent funding what we know now as al-Qaeda. Osama bin-Laden and other Islamic fighters were trained, funded and even praised by the USA back then as heroes and revolutionaries as they took out Soviet helicopters with American ground to air missiles and used the opium harvests to get the Soviet conscripts addicted and de-moralised whilst spending the profits on their war.

The “Islamic Jihad” (or holy war against the Soviets) became an integral part of the CIA’s intelligence ploy. It was supported by the United States and Saudi Arabia, with a significant part of the funding generated from the Golden Crescent drug trade:

“In March 1985, President Reagan signed National Security Decision Directive 166 … [which] authorize[d] stepped-up covert military aid to the Mujahideen, and it made clear that the secret Afghan war had a new goal: to defeat Soviet troops in Afghanistan through covert action and encourage a Soviet withdrawal. The new covert U.S. assistance began with a dramatic increase in arms supplies — a steady rise to 65,000 tons annually by 1987 … as well as a “ceaseless stream” of CIA and Pentagon specialists who travelled to the secret headquarters of Pakistan’s ISI on the main road near Rawalpindi, Pakistan. There, the CIA specialists met with Pakistani intelligence officers to help plan operations for the Afghan rebels.” – Steve Coll, The Washington Post, July 19, 1992.

What is less known by many is that these close links between al-Qaeda and the west continued far after the end of the Afghan / Soviet war. The Mujahideen were recruited by the CIA from a large number of Muslim countries including jihadists from the Soviet Muslim republics.

Among these recruits was the leader of the Chechnya rebellion Shamil Basayev who in the immediate fall of the USSR led Chechnya’s first secessionist war against Russia. Shamil Basayev had links to US intelligence from the late 1980s. He was involved in the 1991 coup d’Etat which led to the break-up of the Soviet Union and was subsequently involved in Chechnya’s unilateral declaration of independence from the Russian Federation in November 1991.

During his training in Afghanistan, Shamil Basayev linked up with Saudi born veteran Mujahideen Commander “Al Khattab” who had fought as a volunteer in Afghanistan. Barely a few months after Basayev’s return to Grozny, Khattab was invited (early 1995) to set up an army base in Chechnya for the training of Mujahideen fighters. According to the BBC, Khattab’s posting to Chechnya had been “arranged through the Saudi-Arabian based [International] Islamic Relief Organisation, a militant religious organisation, funded by mosques and rich individuals which channeled funds into Chechnya”. – BBC, 29 September 1999.

Therefore it is no lie to suggest that the CIA and the west created and supported what was later known as al-Qaeda. In fact bin-Laden and his group were actually a very small organisation and when the time came to paint them as a bogey man it was apt that the CIA’s own book of jihadists would be the name for the new bogeyman under the bed.

The UK, as attested to by ex MI5 agent David Shayler, funded an al-Qaeda offshoot called the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) to assassinate Col. Gaddafi during the 90’s. His whistleblowing led to his imprisonment for breaking the official secrets act and the case rocked the front pages of the UK press for quite a time.

As reported by major UK papers the plot involved:

“..contacts between MI6 and a group of Middle Eastern plotters who tried unsuccessfully to blow up Gadaffi’s motorcade. The report, coded CX95/ 53452, was passed to senior Foreign Office officials. It revealed when and where the assassination attempt was due and said that at least 250 British-made weapons were distributed among the plotters. The four-page CX document was published on the California-based Yahoo! website. The Sunday Times has complied with a request by Rear-Admiral Nick Wilkinson, secretary of the government’s defence, press and broadcasting advisory committee, not to print the address of the website on which the CX report is published.” – Sunday Times, 13 February 2000

In fact we were so concerned about the dangers of the LIFG, al-Qaeda and bin-Laden that we even ignored an Interpol arrest warrant that was issued by Libya for bin-Laden and even helped linked terrorists evade capture by granting them political asylum.

“British intelligence paid large sums of money to an al-Qaeda cell in Libya in a doomed attempt to assassinate Colonel Gadaffi in 1996 and thwarted early attempts to bring Osama bin Laden to justice…. two French intelligence experts ……reveal that the first Interpol arrest warrant for bin Laden was issued by Libya in March 1998. According to journalist Guillaume Dasquié and Jean-Charles Brisard, an adviser to French President Jacques Chirac, British and US intelligence agencies buried the fact that the arrest warrant had come from Libya ……. Five months after the warrant was issued, al-Qaeda killed more than 200 people in the truck bombings of US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania…. The Libyan al-Qaeda cell included Anas al-Liby, who remains on the US government’s most wanted list with a reward of $25 million for his capture. He is wanted for his involvement in the African embassy bombings. Al-Liby was with bin Laden in Sudan before the al-Qaeda leader returned to Afghanistan in 1996. Astonishingly, despite suspicions that he was a high-level al-Qaeda operative, al-Liby was given political asylum in Britain and lived in Manchester until May of 2000” – The Observer, 2002.

Then there was the Kosovan war in the Balkans in which we decided to support the Islamic separatists against their Serbian government and fought alongside the al-Qaeda linked KLA. The Washington Times reported on reports from Janes Defence Review that:

“..the town of Tropoje, Albania was a”common staging area” for Bin Laden’s and the KLA’s forces, and thus “a center for Islamic terrorists.” US intelligence also acknowledged that Bin Ladin’s al-Qaeda had “both trained and financially supported” the Albanians, and that the Kosovo border had been infiltrated by Bosnian, Chechen and Afghan mujahedeen, in “…crossings (which) originated in neighboring Albania and, according to the reports, included parties of up to 50 men.” – Washington Times, 4th May 1999.

Lenard Cohen a professor of political science at Simon Fraser University stated that:

“The arrival in the Balkans of the so-called Afghan Arabs, who are from various Middle Eastern states and linked to al-Qaeda, began in 1992 soon after the war in Bosnia.”

Mujahedeen Fighters, who had fought in Afghanistan against the Soviet occupation in the 1980s later “migrated to Bosnia hoping to assist their Islamic brethren in a struggle against Serbian [and for a time] Croatian forces.”

Slobodan Milosevic actually tried to present this evidence at his trial in the Hague for war crimes and logically it seems strange that the western NATO forces were fighting alongside known terrorists against a Christian country. commenting on Milosevic’s evidence, James Bissett, an expert on Balkans affairs and a former Canadian ambassador to Yugoslavia stated that:

“Milosevic is right. There is no question of their participation in conflicts in the Balkans. It is very well documented.”

“Many members of the Kosovo Liberation Army were sent for training in terrorist camps in Afghanistan,”

So it was well-known that during the 90’s when al-Qaeda was starting to be pushed by the media as a worldwide terrorist organisation that we still had close links to this dangerous force. Were our western intelligence agencies actually in control of this terrorist group or were we only in control of key assets within al-Qaeda like bin-Laden who enabled us to pull their strings?

I don’t know but even after 9.11 when the world was up in arms at the group for supposedly attacking the USA in the most sophisticated terrorist attack known in history evidence emerged to show that we were still closely linked to the group.

Even worse it suggested we were even linked to the terrorists who had carried out the attacks! Were we funding them? Were they double-crossing us or did we allow them to carry out the attack to fulfil the aims prophesied in the Project for the New American Century document – Rebuilding America’s Defences.

Sibel Edmonds, an ex FBI translator, was gagged and prevented from telling the world what she knew. She has offered to break her silence on US mainstream news but oddly no news channel has taken her up on this offer. However we do know from her comments that she claims:

“With those groups, we had operations in Central Asia,” said former Turkish language translator Sibel Edmonds on Friday speaking on the radio program, the Mike Malloy Show. Sibel said the US maintained ‘intimate relations’ with bin Laden, and the Taliban, “all the way until that day of September 11.”

These ‘intimate relations’ included using bin Laden for ‘operations’ in Central Asia, including Xinjiang, China. These ‘operations’ involved using al-Qaida and the Taliban in the same manner “as we did during the Afghan and Soviet conflict,” that is, fighting ‘enemies’ via proxies. – Sibel Edmonds, Times of India, Aug 3rd 2009.

So the American government doesn’t want the close ties between the US government and al-Qaeda to be known otherwise they wouldn’t have gagged Sibel Edmonds. Also we know from investigations carried out after 9.11 that the Israeli government was closely following the 9.11 terrorists around the USA, even living doors away from them at times. If this is true then why didn’t they tell the USA, and if they did then did someone ignore their warning? Was this deliberate?

Even the staunch right wing, nationalistic and pro-war FOX News carried out a 4 part investigation into these Israeli spy rings. An investigation which was soon taken down from their website due to pressure by pro-Israeli pressure groups. You can read the full investigation on my site but key parts include:

“Since Sept. 11, more than 60 Israelis have been arrested or detained, either under the new patriot anti-terrorism law, or for immigration violations. A handful of active Israeli military were among those detained, according to investigators, who say some of the detainees also failed polygraph questions when asked about alleged surveillance activities against and in the United States.”

“Fox News has learned that one group of Israelis, spotted in North Carolina recently, is suspected of keeping an apartment in California to spy on a group of Arabs who the United States is also investigating for links to terrorism. Numerous classified documents obtained by Fox News indicate that even prior to Sept. 11, as many as 140 other Israelis had been detained or arrested in a secretive and sprawling investigation into suspected espionage by Israelis in the United States.” – Carl Cameron investigated Israeli Spy Rings in the USA.

A German newspaper Die Zeit also reported on the Israeli spy ring that was following a number of the 9.11 hijackers around the USA. They also claim that the Mossad spy ring informed the USA about the terrorists and the planned attacks but that the warnings were ignored.

“According to a report of the French intelligence agency that Die Zeit examined, “according to the FBI, Arab terrorists and suspected terror cells lived in Phoenix, Arizona, as well as in Miami and Hollywood, Florida from December 2000 to April 2001 in direct proximity to the Israeli spy cells.”

“According to the report, the Mossad agents were interested in the leader of the terrorists, Mohammed Atta and his key accomplice, Marwan al-Shehi. Both lived in Hamburg before they settled in Hollywood, Florida in order to plan the attacks. A Mossad team was also operating in the same town. The leader, Hanan Serfati, had rented several dwellings. “One of Serfati’s apartments was located on the corner of 701st St. and 21st Ave. [sic] in Hollywood, right near the apartment of Atta and al-Shehi.”, French intelligence reported later. Everything indicates that the terrorists were constantly observed by the Israelis. The chief Israeli agent was staying right near the post office where the terrorists had a mailbox. The Mossad also had its sights on Atta’s accomplice Khalid al-Midhar, with whom the CIA was also familiar, but allowed to run free. The Mossad apparently warned their American counterparts several times about the terrorists, especially about al-Midhar. The American government later admitted that they had received such warnings prior to September 11.” – Die Zeit, October 14th 2002

So not only did the Americans and Israeli’s know about the 9.11 hijackers whereabouts but they were being closely monitored. One only has to read up on the ABLE Danger program to realise how much foreknowledge the US government had about the terror plot which makes one wonder with all this information why it wasn’t stopped before hand.

The 9.11 attacks relied on so much co-incidence and luck that I call it the biggest co-incidence theory in world history.

Not only were the hijackers lucky to take over four planes with rudimentary weapons but they managed to get on the flights even though many were known to the authorities. They also managed to expertly fly these huge planes perfectly into their targets, even supposedly managing to break known laws of physics by getting a Boeing 757 to fly 400mph a few feet from the ground without crashing first into the first floor of the Pentagon.

They also were so lucky that previously whenever a weak nose of a plane has hit a re-inforced concrete wall the plane has crumbled into dust and the wall remained. However on this day not only did they manage to make a plane punch through 3 re-enforced concrete walls at the Pentagon but they managed to carry out expert manoeuvres that even expert pilots claim couldn’t be made.

That’s not even mentioning the fact that they were lucky enough to carry out their attacks on a day that NORAD was carrying out pretend hijacking exercises which confused air traffic control and prevented planes being flown to stop the hijacked planes. Not only that but they were lucky enough to cause 3 high towered sky scrapers to explode into dust by only hitting two of their targets.

Therefore the hijackers were very, very lucky that they managed to have everything go their way on 9.11!

So it seems the west has been in close links with al-Qaeda all the way up to 9.11, but what about after? Haven’t we been fighting them in Afghanistan and Iraq for the past 10 years?

Well supposedly, but a news story by Tony Capaccio from Bloomberg News refers to a report to Congress by the Special Inspector for Afghan Reconstruction John Sopko. This report revealed that Sopko asked the US Army Suspension and Disbarment office to cancel 43 contracts to known Al Qaeda and Taliban supporters. They refused. The reason? The Suspension and Disbarment Office claims it would violate Al Qaeda and Taliban “due process rights.”

So not only are we funding our enemy through backhanded methods in Afghanistan but the recent revelations from Libya reveal that the Benghazi attack on the US embassy was really an attack on a CIA front for weapons running to al-Qaeda linked rebels in Syria.

It seems President Obama is ignoring the law – again – and has decided to fund al-Qaeda linked rebels such as the al-Nusra Front who are busy cutting people’s heads off, stoning woman and massacring whole villages.

(Reuters) – President Barack Obama has signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for rebels seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government, sources familiar with the matter said.

Obama’s order, approved earlier this year and known as an intelligence “finding,” broadly permits the CIA and other U.S. agencies to provide support that could help the rebels oust Assad. – Reuters 2012

These rebels are of a similar ilk to those we supported in the other throw of Col. Gaddafi. These rebels are still in control of large quantities of NATO supplied weapons paid for by western tax payers. The leaders of the mish mash of rebel groups in control of Libya now are busy fighting each other, locking up and executing people with dark skin and implementing Sharia law where they can. We really helped to modernise Libya with that bold move and it’s not as if they are even that grateful.

We have had British World War cemeteries destroyed by Islamic fundamentalists and the US ambassador Chris Stevens was murdered in an attack by jihadists not long back.

Senseless: A man kicks down headstones of soldiers
Senseless: A man kicks down headstones of 150 British servicemen killed in North Africa 70 years ago

Even the rebels at the time admitted they were being supported by al-Qaeda and had no problem with their brand of extremism

The Daily Telegraph ran a recent story in which an interview with the leader of the rebel army we are supporting in Libya‘s civil war admitted that he had recruited al-Qaeda fighters and called them not terrorists but good Muslims.

Mr al-Hasidi insisted his fighters “are patriots and good Muslims, not terrorists,” but added that the “members of al-Qaeda are also good Muslims and are fighting against the invader”.

Al-Qaeda’s own leaders even released statements in support of the rebels and also called for the other throw of Gaddafi who they felt was an obstacle to their ideal Islamic Caliphate.

It seems after Libya the rebels have flocked to Syria and whilst we debate arming these jihadists they are busy killing Christians, eating lungs and hearts on film and beheading everyone they can get their hands on.

Just one of the recent massacres involved over 120 children and 330 men and women who were massacred by the al-Nusra Front in the town of Tal Abyad.

Al Nusra Mercenaries in Syria Slaughter Kurdish Women and Children kurdkids

And this isn’t the only massacre carried out by the anti-Assad forces we are so keen to back at any cost.

Earlier this year another massacre was filmed and showed Rebel Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters capture a policeman who the FSA allege is a “Shabiha” or pro-regime militiaman, on July 31, 2012, as the rebels overran a police station in Aleppo.

The footage shows several bloodied men stripped down to their underwear being forced to kneel by a wall amidst a throng of excited, machine gun-touting men.

Once their captors open fire, the camera jerks away as the crowd momentarily disperses, seemingly unprepared for the nearly 40 seconds of uninterrupted shooting that follows. As the gunfire dies down, shouts of “Allahu Akbar!” resound as the once skittish onlookers victoriously raise their guns in the air, approaching what appears to be a pile of stripped-down corpses.

One of the victims has been identified as Ali Zein Al-Abidin Al-barri; the rebels accused him and his family of killing 15 FSA soldiers during a truce in Aleppo.

The rebels are certainly not afraid of using terrorism as a tactic in Syria. Not only have they massacred whole villages but they are not afraid of using huge Iraqi style car bombs to kill as many innocent people as possible.

Earlier this year the Free Syrian Army (supposedly moderate when compared to al-Nusra Front) admitted carrying out a car bombing attack in Damascus which killed the president’s defence minister, brother-in-law and the head of his crisis team whilst meeting at the national security headquarters.

From the BBC News Site:

“The president’s defence minister, brother-in-law and head of his crisis team were at a meeting at national security headquarters in Damascus…”

“The rebel Free Syrian Army (FSA) and a jihadist group calling itself Lord of the Martyrs Brigade both said they were behind the security headquarters bombing.”

“Security sources say the suspected bomber worked as a bodyguard for members of President Bashar al-Assad’s inner circle.”

As I have written on many occasions since we started our latest round of wars in the Middle East it seems very strange that we declare al-Qaeda to be our mortal enemy and spill our own soldiers blood and guts fighting them in certain parts of the world yet fund and arm them in countries we want to other throw such as Libya and Syria.

Not only are we basically supporting our own enemy because of “realpolitik” but it seems we have no moral line in the sand at all.

How can we declare al-Qaeda to be such an evil, all-powerful terrorist group, one in which we must lay down our civil liberties by the bucket load to defeat on one hand and yet support them and their offshoots on the other because they are fighting another one of our enemies?

It really does seem that the saying, the enemy of my enemy is my friend in this case and history shows that al-Qaeda is a lot more than just our enemy. In fact from the very beginning it seems they were created as our own group of Jihadists to be let off the leash whenever we want to de-stabilise an area or cause panic at home.

Want to implement a new liberty destroying law such as the PATRIOT ACT or the NDAA, then let’s get one of our patsies to get on a plane with a bomb in his pants. Oh he’s on a no-fly list, don’t worry we will just usher him through passport control and give him entry to the USA so that we can arrest him in a blaze of glory and scare everyone witless during Christmas.

It is very clear our political leaders have the moral backbone of jellyfish and their duplicity is beyond comprehension.

Therefore when we hear stories about huge chemical weapon stashes found in rebels homes in Turkey, or our very own UN inspector claims that the only signs of chemical Weapon use are by the rebels we should pay notice.

It should also be noted that the use of Chemical weapons was the “red line” Obama was willing to engage in the Syrian conflict if crossed. The problem seems to be that the line was crossed by our own side not President Assad.

A recent independent UN investigation into the use of chemical weapons suggests that the attack was carried out by Syrian rebels NOT the forces of President Assad.

Also hacked emails from defense contractor Britam reveal a plan apparently “approved byWashington” and funded by Qatar to stage a chemical weapons attack in Syria and blame it on the Assad regime.

And recently the Turkish security forces found a 2 kg cylinder filled with sarin gas after searching the homes of Al-Nusra Syrian militants who are linked to Al-Qaeda.

So lets all be clear here as I summarise the points.

  1. al-Qaeda was created by the CIA to fight the USSR in Afghanistan.
  2. After the war we used al-Qaeda to fight the Russians in Chechnya and the Serbs in Kosovo.
  3. British intelligence not only harboured al-Qaeda linked terrorists but funded them to carry out illegal assasination plots in Libya.
  4. The first Interpol warrant issued for bin-Laden was ignored by western intelligence and bin-Laden was allowed to escape.
  5. A well placed whistleblower, ex FBI agent Sibel Edmonds, claims the USA had intimate ties with al-Qaeda and bin-Laden right up to 9.11. Apparently they were used to fight proxy wars and to destabilise areas which the US had an interest in.
  6. Even the 9.11 hijackers were monitored by Mossad spies, the US was warned about their plans, ABLE Danger had identified them but for some reason no action was taken.
  7. 9.11 was then used to justify the war on terror which has led to over a decade of war, the massive loss of liberties at home and the rise of the surveillance state. All under the auspices of protecting us from terrorism.
  8. The risk of death from terrorism is minimal. You are 11,000 times more likely to die from a plane crash than you are from a terrorist attack.
  9. Even though we are supposedly fighting al-Qaeda in Afghanistan we are at the same time funding the Taliban through re-construction programs.
  10. We have recently armed and fought alongside al-Qaeda linked rebels to other throw Col. Gaddafi in Libya. Libya is now in a mess and run by Sharia law imposing rebels. Before our intervention Libya was one of the richest, healthiest and educated populations in Africa.
  11. We are now funding and arming Syrian rebels that are linked to al-Qaeda. These rebels have been taped on numerous occasions beheading people, eating the lungs and hearts of victims, executing captured soldiers and massacring whole villages.
  12. Even though President Assad is a dictator during his reign he has modernised the country and Christians and Muslims lived side by side in peace. Now the Islamic fundamentalists are killing Christians, using chemical weapons and imposing Sharia law.
  13. Just like in Libya these terrorists are not likely to hand back any guns, rocket launchers and other weapons we provide them. It is more likely they will be used against Europeans and Americans in terrorist attacks.
  14. It is also likely that any further terrorist attacks will be used to impose more draconian police state laws and Internet surveillance.

Here are some video’s which show the type of people we are supporting in our “war of terror”.

9.11 – Remaining Questions

July 22, 2013

9.11 – Remaining Questions

By Dark Politricks

I looked at some remaining questions in an article on the Pentagon attack the other day and after watching the final cut of Loose Change I have complied a fuller list.

These questions include, but are not limited to:

  • We know that the CIA basically created “the database” which is the translation of al-Qaeda. As ex Foreign Secretary Robin Cook attested to this database was a list of CIA assets used in by the USA during their covert fight with the USSR in Afghanistan. Were the CIA still using al-Qaeda assets at the time of 9.11?
  • We also know that Mossad has controlled al-Qaeda rings before (even setting up fake rings) – was this a controlled ring or a co-opted ring “allowed” to commit the attack. Both FOX News and German newspapers reported on the Israeli spy rings that were following some of the hijackers about the USA. Did they tell anyone?
  • What about the Mossad agents who claimed to have been sent to “document the event”? What event and how did they know to set up camera’s across the river to film the attack?
  • If the war in Afghanistan is a direct result of the 9/11 attacks then why did the USA have detailed plans for an invasion planned for October of 2001 before the attacks had even happened.
  • Why did the Pakistani ISI general order the wiring of $100,000 to lead hijacker Mohammed Atta in the months preceding the attacks?
  • The CIA apparently knew about Atta and the other hijackers and that they posed a threat to the country through their secret Able Danger operation. Why was this important pre-attack evidence not used to stop it OR was it just ignored?
  • Why won’t any mainstream US media station interview the most gagged woman in history, Sibel Edmonds, an FBI translator who has promised to blow the lid of 9.11 with facts and revelations which she believes would lead to high level indictments.
  • What about Norman Mineta’s testimony to the 9.11 commission that Dick Cheney ordered a stand down by not ordering the shoot down of the fast approaching blip that was entering supposedly the most highly restricted air space in the world?
  • Why did the Bush administration refuse to hold an enquiry until the families of the 9.11 victims demanded one and then why did they only give the commission minimal funds, far less than the non-consequential event that was the Monica Lewinsky scandal?
  • Why have so many 9.11 commissioners come out and publicly said that the full truth has not been given to the public. Also that the White House deliberately blocked access to witnesses and hid evidence. They also claimed that the CIA and FBI basically lied about certain events and that indictments should be handed out, something which didn’t happen.
  • Why did the CIA allow 15 of 19 suspected hijackers into the country on the fast track VISA scheme out of Jeddah.
  • Why doesn’t the US government release all the CCTV and other camera footage from the Pentagon to show us what hit the building?
  • Who chose 9.11 to run the Vigilant Guardian NORAD training exercises involving hijacked planes. When was this date chosen and why?
  •  Why did the US secret service not interview the bin-Laden family before being spirited out of the USA straight after 9.11, especially when their family member was the prime culprit?
  • Why was the 9.11 commission used to push for a war with Iraq?
  • Why were the victims and families of the worst terrorist attack in recent years afforded minimal funds to investigate, poorly, the biggest attack on the USA since Pearl Harbour.

  • Were any of the hijackers involved in drug smuggling out of the infamous Venice airport and who knew about this? The airport is a known smuggling route that has apparently been given the “green light” by the CIA and has some very dodgy links with mobsters, cocaine cartels, intelligence agencies and terrorists all of which Daniel Hopsicker has documented in his videos and on his site Madcow Morning News.
  •  Multiple intelligence agencies from around the world knew an attack was planned and told the US. There is also evidence that suggests multiple US agencies knew of plans to attack the states from Al Qaeda infiltrators and intercepted communications. How far up the US government did this knowledge go and what action was taken or deliberately NOT taken?
  • Many of the victims families, survivors and first responders want a new enquiry. In fact over 80,000 people from New York signed a petition demanding a new enquiry which the city prevented from occurring. Why did New York block the people from having their own inquiry into the events of that day?

Those are just a fraction of the many questions that can be asked but the final cut of Loose Change is well worth watching even if you have seen the first two.

Remember that whether you believe the official conspiracy theory or an alternative theory there still remains questions and when even the commissioners from the single, poorly funded 9.11 commission are making statements such as:

“I was shocked at how different the truth was from the way it was described …. The tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public for two years.. This is not spin. This is not true.” – John Farmer

“One of these days we will have to get the full story because the 9-11 issue is so important to America. But this White House wants to cover it up”. – Max Cleland

“We were extremely frustrated with the false statements we were getting” – Timothy Roemer

And we have ex FBI whistleblowers such as Sibel Edmonds willing to tell their story with no-one in the US mainstream media willing to tell it. The question is why?

Lets have an independent 9.11 commission with subpoena powers and lets put to bed all remaining questions about that day once and for all.

The following link is to a 2 hour radio show from James Whale on Talk Sport ( a UK talk radio station ).

It is a detailed show which includes a debate between David Ray Griffin and George Monbiot. George is a believer of the official conspiracy theory however he himself admits there was probably a conspiracy to cover up the Bush administrations incompetence after the event.

The talk then moves on to a debate with the co-director of the final cut, Tim Sparke as well as Jason Bermas. It is well worth the listen if you have the time.

Do you have the balls to be a whistle blower?

December 16, 2011

By Dark Politricks

Today is the day Private Bradley Manning finally gets his first of many days in court. It must be a relief to put some different clothes on after the many months he has spent in solitude, sometimes naked and depressed with only his thoughts to occupy his time. Some people have called his treatment a form of torture.

Whatever the outcome, and I think we all know what that will be – his fate has been decided many moons ago, the question will remain when does whistle blowing constitute traitorous activity?

If you work for a government body of any kind and you find out that someone or some group within that organisation is breaking either national law or international law by their actions should you speak out?

No matter what you think of Bradley Manning’s actions it has been clear from many leaked documents and videos that war crimes have been committed by US troops during their many years of imperialistic activity.

We have had the Abu Ghraib incidents in which detainees, many who were innocent of any crime, were forced to perform humiliating and sexually degrading acts for the camera wielding jailers who claimed they were just following orders from above. Scape goats a many.

We have had the claims of torture at Gitmo in which detainees were water boarded, sometimes multiple times a day. An act the current president of the United StatesUS and International law calls Torture.

We have had “rouge” groups of US troops commit murder for fun. In Afghanistan a “secret kill team” went on a rampage killing several men and collecting their fingers as trophies. I doubt this was the only group doing this but it took a brave whistle blower to tell the tale.

We had the famous WikiLeaks helicopter attack on a group of Iraqi men, two of which were journalists, which shocked the world when it was released. It showed the “Playstationmentality” of the pilots who seemed to treat the massacre as nothing more than a video game where real human beings and ambulances were just targets to be shot at to gain extra points.

And the list could go on across many more years, wars and armies as atrocities are not just committed by the USA but by UK troops, Russian soldiers in Chechnya, Bosnian Serbs, Turkish and Israeli armies. No countries army is immune from the horrors and excesses of war. War crimes are committed on a daily basis and no doubt clever and influential people in the West are plotting and planning as I write trying to create plans to delay the imminent rise to dominance of China.

However we have seen what happens to people who dare to stick their head over the parapet and accuse their own government of wrong doing.

Daniel Ellsberg felt the full force of US law when he brought to the US populations attention the excesses of the Vietnam war in the Pentagon papers and Mordechai Vanunu found out what happens when you mess with the Israeli establishment who were secretly building nuclear weapons at their Dimona nuclear plant.

Ex British Spy David Shayler was jailed for his revelations that the MI6 were funding Al-Qaeda linked terrorists in a plot to kill Col Gaddafi and after 9.11 numerous whistle-blowers including the “most gagged person in history” Sibel Edmonds were prevented from telling the world what they knew about the US governments pre-knowledge of the attacks on the country.

Therefore it seems that it does not pay to be a truth teller when the goverment you serve is more interested in telling lies.

You risk a lot by going public with evidence of wrong doing when the organisation you work for treats whistle blowing as official secrets to be kept, even when they know those secrets are illegal, immoral and wrong.

We can see now how Julian Assange is being treated for daring to open a website up that allowed whistle-blowers to pass information on secretly. If the government in question can’t get you then it will use it’s corporatist nature and it’s overseas allies to hurt you by shutting down your site, blocking funding and bank accounts and possibly even going as far as concocting false accusations of sexual molestation so that you can be character assassinated in the public domain.

To many it is clear that our supposedly free, western liberal democratic governments are nothing of the sort. The continuous swapping of power between similar political parties run or backed by millionaires and big business every few years is nothing more than the illusion of democracy being played out for the watching populous.

We can see it now in Egypt and Libya. Two countries who are supposedly now free of their tyrannical leaders and who are supposed to be embracing democracy with open arms.

In Egypt people are voting in pointless elections for a government with no power whilst the military still controls the country.

In Libya the old dictator has been replaced by a grouping of his old deputies, “ex” terrorists and other regime linked cronies who seem to be loathe to hand power back to the people.

Right now in Benghazi people are protesting about the countries interim governmentthe National Transitional Council, who they feel are being too slow to affect any meaningful change.

They also believe that the NTC leader Mustafa Abdul-Jalil who was the ex Minister for Justice under Gaddafi is far too willing to forgive ex colleagues and Gaddafisupporters. This is undoubtedly due to the fact that as Minister for Justice he was probably personally responsible for many of the human rights abuses and crimes that went on under the old regime.

Same faces, different name. That is the game we are all playing as the world spins in turmoil and we watch protesters from Wall Street to Europe to the Middle East all try and affect change in their lives whilst our real rulers, the bankers and their cohorts shuffle the deck of politicians and make us all believe the impossible.

As Bradley Manning goes to court today, whether you agree with his actions or not, I wonder how many of us in this current climate of fear would dare to stand up and say “No”, if they knew the punishment that faced them for doing so.

Would you?

 

 

 

Charlie Sheen and the 9/11 investigation

September 13, 2009

By Dark Politricks

With the anniversary of 9/11 just gone past for another year and the war still rumbling on in Afghanistan it is worth once remembering those events in New York and Washington to see if we have learnt anything new or answered any of those questions that have been lingering ever since. Although a large percentage of the population in the US as well as any other country believe that the official story of the events of 9/11 is a pack of lies the main stream media is still following the official line and proponents of alternative theories are always labelled conspiracy theorists.

A recent article in Physcology today labelled the anti NWO personality Alex Jones and all other conspiracy theorists as borderline mentally ill for believing in theories that accuse the government of conspiring to cause harm to its citizens. This blatantly ignores the many historical incidences of governments doing just that (Reichstag fireOperation NorthwoodsOperation GLADIO and the first World Trade Center attacks to name just a few).

Opponents of conspiracy theories seem quite happy to ignore any facts or pieces of evidence that contradict their view of the state as a benevolent force at the same time of accusing proponents of such widely known false flag theories of doing the same. This hypocrisy can be seen with the recent media onslaught against Charlie Sheen who has bravely risked his career to question the “official conspiracy theory” of 9/11. People have accused Sheen and other 9/11 truthers of being on the same level as holocaust deniers however I would say that people who refuse to question authority or ask questions of their government when questions need answering are worse than holocaust deniers. They are the people who allowed the holocaust to happen, they guarded the camps, drove the trains or kept the books of the Nazi regime. They refused to believe that such evil could happen and because they refused to question authority and confront the evil in their midst they allowed an evil to be perpetrated.

If you claim to support the official government story of 9/11 that hijackers flew planes into the WTC and Pentagon and that the US government had no knowledge of the attacks before hand and did all they possible could to prevent those attacks from happening then fine. However if you believe this explanation without having investigated the matter for yourselves and then ridicule others as conspiracy theorists without knowing the facts or questions that led to alternative theories then shame on you. You are no better than creationists or young earthers who believe an official story because it either comforts you or because an authority told you what to believe in. At least have the decency to look into any alternative story so that you can combat it with logic and reason rather than faith.

Here is a short video by Charlie Sheen which accompanies his letter to President Obama asking for a re-opening of the 9/11 enquiry. Even if you do not read the letter please watch the video and send it on. All the clips from the video are from news reports taken from the day of the attacks.

Even if you do not agree with the evidence presented or the questions he asked you should admire his guts in asking those questions as he is currently being vilified by the US media. He is risking his career to uncover answers to questions about that day that the US government seems unwilling to answer. The only investigation into 9/11 was a white wash and we now have 6 of the 10 commissioners who held that enquiry have gone on record to say that the official story is a lie.

Those 9/11 commission members have said:

The co-chairs of the 9/11 Commission (Thomas Keane and Lee Hamilton) said that the CIA (and likely the White House) “obstructed our investigation”.
The co-chairs of the 9/11 Commission also said that the 9/11 Commissioners knew that military officials misrepresented the facts to the Commission, and the Commission considered recommending criminal charges for such false statements, yet didn’t bother to tell the American people (free subscription required).
Indeed, the co-chairs of the Commission now admit that the Commission largely operated based upon political considerations.
9/11 Commission co-chair Lee Hamilton says “I don’t believe for a minute we got everything right”, that the Commission was set up to fail, that people should keep asking questions about 9/11, that the 9/11 debate should continue, and that the 9/11 Commission report was only “the first draft” of history.
9/11 Commissioner Bob Kerrey said that “There are ample reasons to suspect that there may be some alternative to what we outlined in our version . . . We didn’t have access . . . .”
9/11 Commissioner Timothy Roemer said “We were extremely frustrated with the false statements we were getting”
Former 9/11 Commissioner Max Cleland resigned from the Commission, stating: “It is a national scandal”; “This investigation is now compromised”; and “One of these days we will have to get the full story because the 9-11 issue is so important to America. But this White House wants to cover it up”.
9/11 Commissioner John Lehman said that “We purposely put together a staff that had – in a way – conflicts of interest”.
The Senior Counsel to the 9/11 Commission (John Farmer) who led the 9/11 staff’s inquiry, said “I was shocked at how different the truth was from the way it was described …. The tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public for two years.. This is not spin. This is not true.”

If even the people who held the only enquiry into those events believe that the official story is a lie then surely another one should be held. Numerous enquiries were held into the Pearl Harbour attacks even though the Japanese were known to have commited them. Bin Laden who was accussed of the attacks denied responsibility in an interview carried out a few weeks later. However he was used as  the reason to start almost a decade of war and has never been brought to justice.

The people who believe that the attacks were either a false flag or allowed to happen for political gain do not only contain numerous politicians, military members, journalists, architects, pilots and scientists but also the majority of the public when questioned. On most polls taken roughly 6 out of 10 people do not believe the offical story behind 9/11 in one way or another and I am guessing here that out of the remaining 4 the majority have not spent any time investigating the facts or unaswered questions themselves. We also now have many family members and survivors of those attacks demanding a new investigation but still one of the most common attacks made by those unwilling to even consider an investigation is that we must shut up to respect the victims of those attacks.

The best way to show our respect to the 3000+ victims of the 9/11 attacks is to hold a full public enquiry to answer every single one of the many questions that remain about that day. If the result shows that Arab Terrorists hijacked the planes and carried out the attacks and there was no knowledge before hand by any government agency that could have prevented the attacks then that is fine but we have not had such an enquiry and until we do questions will remain. Questions such as:

-Why did the CIA allow 15 of 19 suspected hijackers into the country on the fast track VISA scheme out of Jeddah.

-Were these Arab pilots engaged in smuggling drugs for the CIA or with a green light from the CIA from the Venice airport in Florida. Sibel Edmonds the most gagged person in history since 9/11 claims that

“The 9/11 terror plot intersected with the activities of a drug trafficking network of international scope, in ways that form a “crystal clear” picture of what was going on.”

-Did the Mossad agents posing as Art Students who lived “only a stones throw away” from these hijackers in Florida know of the plot before hand. If so did they inform the US government and did the US government ignore the warning or allow the attacks to occur for political reasons.

-Was the CIA or the USA in general still maintaining a close and intimate relationship with Bin Laden and the Taliban right up until 9/11 as Sibel Edmonds claims in a recent interview after breaking her gag order. If so what were the nature of these ties? When was the last time any member of the CIA, FBI, NSA or any other agency meet face to face with Bin Laden?

-If the war in Afghanistan is a direct result of the 9/11 attacks then why did the USA have detailed plans for an invasion planned for October of 2001 before the attacks had ever happened. If the attacks never happened would we have gone to war anyway and how would the government have gained public support for such a naked war of aggression?

-Is there any truth in the reports that hundreds of millions of dollars worth of gold bullion went missing from the World Trade Center. Who did this gold belong to, who took it and why has no-one complained? Were the attacks used as a cover for this theft.

-If eye witness accounts of planes hitting the Pentagon are used as the main explanation for that attack in defiance of the lack of physical evidence for a jet liner hitting the building then why are the eye witness accounts from Firemen, Policemen, Journalists and other first responders at WTC that claim to have heard numerous detonator charges or bombs go off in the towers dismissed or not taken into account with the same gravitas as those from Washington?

-Why did the Pakistani ISI general order the wiring of $100,000 to lead hijacker Mohammed Atta in the months preceding the attacks?

-The CIA apparently knew about Atta and the other hijackers and that they posed a threat to the country through their secret Able Danger operation. What did this operation consist of and if they knew Atta posed a threat did they or others with control of this information allow the attacks to occur.

-The Project for a New American Century’s report “Rebuilding Americas defences” which was commissioned by the chief Neo-Cons (Dick Cheney, Rumsfield, Wolfowitz, Libby etc) outlined plans to take and maintain control of the Persian Gulf and to model the world to benefit Americas interests.  It advocated the transformation of the US military but realised such a process would be long winded and problematic without “some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbour”. The 9/11 attacks were exactly the type of attacks this report outlined and have indeed been used by those in power to transform the military and place US bases in the Persian gulf. Is it unreasonable to suggest that certain people when reading intelligence reports of an impending attack by Al Qaeda allowed the attacks to occur in some misguided thought that the benefit to the US in a geopolitical sense over the long term outweighed the suffering and pain of the victims in the short term?

-As well as the PNAC document other policy documents were released after the election of Bush jnr that seeked to legitamise going to war in search for oil and gas. There was obviously a desire by those in control of US policy to get the military to the oil rich gulf and the attacks of 9/11 were the perfect way to gain public support for such an act. We must also remember that within hours of the attack Donald Rumsfield wanted plans to strike Iraq even though Iraq had nothing to do with the attack. This seems like war mongering to me, were the 9/11 attacks used as an excuse to implement existing plans of war?

-Why were the FBI who were investigating Bin Laden and other Saudi links to terrorism told to back off once George Bush took power? Bin Laden along with other family members attended his sons wedding in Kandahar early 2001. This proves Bin Laden maintained contact with other members of his family so why were the Bin Laden family allowed to fly out of the US shortly after the attacks of 9/11 without being questioned first.

-All of the terrorist hijackers bought their plane tickets for 9/11 using credit cards and their real names. Two of these people are on “no fly” watch lists due to being suspected terrorists. Why did the FBI, CIA or any other police authority with this information share it with the airports or airliners concerned.

Why did the plane that hit the Pentagon hit the Pentagon? This is one of the most heavily defended pieces of airspace in the world. Why were no anti-aircraft missiles fired. Why were interceptor planes so slow to respond. What did Dick Cheney mean when he said the orders still stood as the “plane” came hurtling towards the Pentagon and no action was taken to shoot it down. If the orders were to shoot it down then why were no missiles fired. The implication is the order was to let the incoming radar blip hit the target. This was the testimony of Norman Mineta to the 9/11 commission which directly contradicts Dick Cheney’s evidence.

The points I have just raised are a tiny fraction of those publicly available and widely known facts, anomalies or unanswered questions that I personally would like answers to regarding the events that happened on the day of September 11th or in the months leading up to it.

I would urge anyone reading this who is not familiar with the points raised to click any related links provided or to do your own research. I have not even mentioned any theories about bombs in the trade center, controlled demolition, missiles hitting the pentagon, faked phone calls, remote controlled planes, NORAD stand down orders or any other theories that are commonly connected with the attacks.

I feel that I do not need to do this as those few points outlined above are enough I believe to make any logically thinking person who wants to get to the truth of the events of 9/11 say to themselves that maybe we do not know all there is to be known about that day. Maybe the official “conspiracy theory” is just not good enough and maybe only a full comprehensive public enquiry that answers all the questions is good enough to honour the victims and help move forward.

If there is anyone reading this article that does believe that all questions regarding 9/11 have been answered and can help quench my thirst for understanding regarding the points I have raised then please do leave a comment.
