Did Muslims Attack America on 9/11?
By Ibn e Abdul Haq

April 309, 2013 “Information Clearing House” -“PTV” – Almost 12 years and many a million deaths later, the US and its NATO allies have made public their plan to start withdrawal from Afghanistan in 2014. The war in Afghanistan has been an abject failure, orphaned both on the military and the public relations fronts, with the loss of life, property, and infrastructure being colossal.

More importantly, contrary to initial claims, the global war on terror has not made the world a safer place. Instances of terrorism have continuously been on a rise, engulfing one after another the countries neighboring Afghanistan. Lest we forget, almost all subsequent wars waged by US and NATO have had their genesis in the war that was thrust onto Afghanistan after 9/11.

Much of America’s foreign policy since 9/11 has been based on the assumption that it was attacked by Muslims on that day. This assumption was used, most prominently, to justify the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. In fact every war fought by US and its allies during the first decade of the third millennium has been founded in the post-9/11 doctrine of preemption.

It is now widely agreed that the use of 9/11 as a basis for attacking Iraq was illegitimate: none of the hijackers were Iraqis, there was no working relation between Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden, and Iraq was not behind the anthrax attacks. But it is still widely believed that the US attack on Afghanistan was justified. For more than a decade now, the corporate media around the world has consistently been forcing this fantastic narrative as an undisputable fact. It seems likely that the indoctrination will increase to new levels as spin-doctors try to justify the Afghanistan withdrawal plan and prove that the ‘war on terror’ has been a success unmatched in human history.

The stage has been set for a massive ploy of psychological and media war to be unleashed on the unsuspecting minds of the masses. For example, as recently as in 2011, the New York Times while referring to the US attack on Iraq as a “war of choice,” called the battle in Afghanistan a “war of necessity.” Time magazine dubbed it “the right war.” And in 2009, Barack Obama was reported to have said ‘one reason to wind down our involvement in Iraq is to have the troops and resources to “go after the people in Afghanistan who actually attacked us on 9/11.”

HAMISH RUTHERFORD, NICOLE PRYOR AND VERNON SMALL
A leader in the Islamic community says NZ First MP Richard Prosser should resign over his controversial comments about Muslims.

Prosser today apologised ”unreservedly” for the lack of balance in a column he wrote for Investigate magazine calling for Muslim men to be banned from Western airlines – but has ruled out standing down.

The column, entitled Enemy of the State, was written after the 45-year-old MP’s pocket penknife was confiscated at Christchurch Airport.

“If you are a young male, aged between, say, about 19 and about 35, and you’re a Muslim, or you look like a Muslim, or you come from a Muslim country, then you are not welcome to travel on any of the West’s airlines . . .” he wrote.

He also made reference to “a sorry pack of misogynist troglodytes from Wogistan”.

Despite the apology, “stepping down would be an honourable thing to do,” President of the Federation of Islamic Associations of New Zealand (FIANZ), Dr Anwar Ghani, said.

“To take responsibility and move on from Parliament, and reflect on the damage he has caused.”

Ghani said he accepted Prosser’s apology: “We will take his apology at face value, but we will be watching with great interest at how he deals with the Muslim community in future.

“We will leave it there, and move on.”

He said the organisation would start a formal discussion with NZ First leader Winston Peters to make sure that kind of behaviour did not happen again.

Former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad today laid bare the repercussions of the 9/11 attacks on America, labelling it as the worst man-made disaster for the world since the end of the last World War in 1945.

He said the events of 9/11 had resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and Afghans as well as a few thousand American and British soldiers, besides causing devastation to two Muslim countries .

“It has divided the world into Muslim and non-Muslim, and sowed the seeds of suspicion and hatred between them,” he said, adding that it had also undermined the security of nations which had to spend trillions of dollars on security measures.

As legal proceedings move forward for five Guantanamo Bay prisoners charged with roles in the September 11 terrorist attacks, the US government wants the court to censor their testimonies in a move civil liberties lawyers condemn as “chilling.”

Prosecutors in the case against Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other Gitmo inmates accused of involvement in the 9/11 attacks have asked a US military judge to consider a protective order that, if approved, would delay any courtroom discussions by as long as 40-seconds to ensure that no classified information is made available to the media or others.

By doing such, prosecutors claim top-secret details about harsh interrogation techniques and special tactics enforced on the prisoners will be kept from the public and press, a necessity they say in the name of ensuring national security.

“Each of the accused is in the unique position of having had access to classified intelligence sources and methods,” the prosecution says in court filings obtained by the Associated Press. “The government, like the defense, must protect that classified information from disclosure.”

This position outraged the ACLU and some members of the media, including the AP, who are now demanding in court that the government act more transparent in their prosecution.

“What we are challenging is the censorship of the defendant’s testimony based on their personal knowledge of the government’s torture and detention of them,” ACLU attorney Hina Shamsi tells the AP, adding that her opinion is the prosecution’s suggestions would “classify the defendants own knowledge, thoughts and experience.”

“It’s a truly extraordinary and chilling proposal that the government is asking the court to accept,” Shamsi says.

Attorneys for the defense say the result could be much more damming that just risking disclosure, though, as it will censor prisoners from going public about any mistreatment and torture they were subjected to while under years of CIA-sanctioned detention.

“It’s a way in which the government can hide what it did to these men during the period of detention by the CIA,” Army Capt. Jason Wright, a Pentagon-appointed attorney for Mohammed, tells the AP. “I think we need to bring the truth to the light of day on these issues.”

If the court agrees to accept the proposal, details about “advanced interrogation technique” forced onto prisoners, such as the drowning-simulation act known as water-boarding, could be kept from ever escaping the courtroom. Inmate testimonies would be subjected to nearly a one-minute delay, allowing the government to stop the disclosure of any details they may wish to remain under lock-and-key. And while this order has been proposed under the guise of national security, defense attorneys argue that it’s being brought up to keep the truth about years of torture from ever being brought up.

To KTRK News, Capt. Wright suggested he was adamant about bringing all facts regarding his client’s detention to the court and stressed that it has a major role how the rest of the case will move forward, whether or not the government approves.

“Torture matters because, quite frankly, America is better than this,” Wright tells the network. “Other counsel has explained the legal relevance as to why it’s important for this case, why it’s part of the mitigation case, why we have an obligation as defense attorneys to tell the history of our clients.”

Mohammed has previously confessed to military officials that he planned the September 11 attacks against America “from A to Z” and has admitted to being involved in dozens of other terrorist plots. He was arraigned on May 5, 2012 on charges that include terrorism, conspiracy and 2,976 counts of murder, along with co-defendants Ramzi Binalshibh, Walid bin Attash, Mustafa Ahmad al-Hawsawi and Ali Abd al-Aziz Ali.

The Post-9/11 Homeland: America Declares War on Islam
Holy Land Foundation Case Goes to Supreme Court

By Stephen Lendman
Global Research, October 12, 2012

Post-9/11, America declared war on Islam. Injustice triumphed. So did hate and fear. Innocent Muslims became fair game. Guilt by accusation became policy.

Many innocent men and women were charged with terrorism or conspiracy to commit it. They languish unjustly in gulag hell.

They became Washington’s enemy of choice. All Muslims have reason to fear being in America at the wrong time.

Ignored is that Islam teaches love, not hate; peace, not violence; charity, not selfishness; and tolerance, not terrorism. Islam, Christianity and Judaism have common roots.

In today’s hate-filled climate, you’d never know it. Praying to the wrong God became criminalized.

Numerous injustice examples explain US ruthlessness. Among many egregious cases, the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) charity is notable.

Several earlier articles discussed it. It remains a monument of injustice. Charitable giving to the wrong recipients became criminalized. Feeding the wrong hungry children was called lawless. More on that below.

On October 11, Press TV headlined “Muslim charity case goes to Supreme Court,” saying:

Bush administration officials considered HLF its “flagship terror-financing case….” On December 4, 2001, HLF was bogusly declared a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO). Its assets were frozen.

Five HLF principles were wrongfully charged, convicted and imprisoned. In late October, the Supreme Court will decide whether to hear their appeal. It won’t be easy convincing hardline justices to do the right thing.

Hope springs eternal. Maybe even right-wing ideologues won’t tolerate injustice this egregious. Fundamental constitutional principles are at stake. So is right v. wrong.

On January 25, 1995, Bill Clinton issued Executive Order 12947: Prohibiting Transactions With Terrorists Who Threaten To Disrupt the Middle East Peace Process.

The same year Hamas was bogusly declared a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO). It remains one today. Any individual or group charged with providing material support (true or false) becomes targeted for prosecution.

The annual 9/11 “remembrance” has become a yearly international holiday for the Big Lie
By Larry Chin

Global Research, September 17, 2012

Every year, people commemorate 9/11 without having a clear understanding of the original event or the elite agenda that made it possible. This lack of comprehension persists, even as the world explodes in series of orchestrated “new 9/11s” on the eleventh anniversary of the original crime.

* * *

What was still is

The attacks of 9/11/01 was a false flag operation of the Bush/Cheney administration and CIA-affiliated military-intelligence assets (Al-Qaeda, etc.). The resulting “war on terrorism” of the Bush/Cheney and Obama administrations is built on false flag terrorism and propaganda. The “terrorists” are military-intelligence assets, acting on behalf of Anglo-American leaders and their allies.

9/11 is not history. It is now.

The overriding elite military and intelligence agenda remains the conquest of oil and gas resources. 9/11/01 was the first act of desperation among elites to control all significant energy-related geography on the planet, while preventing rival powers from doing the same.

Under the “war on terror”, the world has suffered eleven continuous years of false flag terror. Bombings. Destabilizations. Assassinations. Coups and counter-coups. Controlled and co-opted popular revolts and “mob violence”. Regime changes. Criminality beyond redemption.

As of this writing, new false flag terror attacks in various nations have been carried out by “terrorists” directly and indirectly connected to the CIA and Washington.

They have taken place simultaneous with mob action and grass roots street protests, likely stoked and guided by military-intelligence assets of the CIA and its affiliates.

The manner of the Benghazi attack suggests military-style coordination (also see here), and that the attack was allowed to happen.

The timing was politically convenient. The anti-Muslim film (allegedly by an American right-wing Christian zealot) that sparked riots, and its translated broadcast in Egypt, demand further inquiry. Popular unrest also appears to be guided and/or co-opted.

June 09, 2012 “Information Clearing House” — In the early days of the ‘War on Terror,’ US General Tommy Franks declared, “We don’t do body counts.” He was referring, of course, to the dead of Afghanistan. That the names of 9/11 victims have been appropriately written in stone, only makes it doubly striking that the war waged in their names generates little interest on non-US or NATO civilian deaths. In fact, a war now in its 11th year, comprising the invasion and occupation of two countries, as well as the ongoing bombing of at least three more, has not produced any holistic studies on its direct and indirect casualties.

That a global war can rage so long with no official will to ascertain the number of ‘others’ killed is indicative of the manner in which the cost of war is calculated by those states prosecuting it. Non-US and NATO dead, maimed, disappeared or displaced can’t be part of the equation if official policy is not to count. That there appears to be little public will to change that policy speaks of a more broadly worrying attitude toward ‘others,’ particularly Muslims. The UN and some NGO’s are attempting to count, however, mostly in the variety of local contexts engulfed in the conflict. Despite the hurdles of official obfuscation and public indifference, a catalogue of deadly consequences has begun to emerge.

Beginning in Afghanistan, most commonly cited studies on the 2001 invasion find that approximately 4,000 to 8,000 Afghani civilians died as a direct result of military operations. There are no figures for 2003-05, but in 2006 Human Rights Watch recorded just under 1,000 civilians killed in fighting. From 2007 to July 2011, the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) tallies at least 10,292 non-combatants killed. These figures, it should be emphasized, do include indirect deaths or injuries. Some thing of the scope of indirect deaths can be gleaned from a Guardian article – the most thorough journalistic report on the subject – which calculated that at least 20,000 more died as a result of displacement and famine due to the disruption in food supplies in the first year of the war alone. As well, according to Amnesty International, approximately 250,000 people fled to other countries in 2001 and at least 500,000 more have been internally displaced since.

Exactly 1 year after the Navy Seal team “allegedly” killed Osama bin Laden who was hiding behind his wife fighting valiantly while the White house was watching via the Seal cameras they did not record the raid and chucked his body in the sea because that was Muslim custom to stop his grave from becoming a shrine and the photo’s of his dead body, apart from the one photoshopped one the MSM used all over the planet to proof Osama had really been killed, can’t be made public because the judge refuses to demand the White house releases them, Obama secretly travelled to Afghanistan to announce victory over al Qaeda.

We still have to be in Afghanistan for another 12 years two years of course even though 98% of the population has never heard about the events of 911 but we have destroyed al Qaeda which inexplicably turned up in Libya just before they wanted to “liberate” Libya from Gaddafi so that is a good thing because now we have to “liberate” Syria from Assad who for reasons only know to mad Muslim dictators has begun to kill off his valiantly uprising population who magically have received tons of weapons out of nowhere before we attack Iran which we have to do soon because their mad Muslim dictator can not be re-elected next election which as we all know is a hallmark of mad Muslim dictatorships and why let a perfectly good example of vilification go to waste.

Confused??? Well that is in short what we have been fed over the last 11 years after the 9/11 attacks so if you still believe this crap you have not been paying attention!

But don’t worry you can read Osama’s diaries online and for those who don’t want to waste their time here is the short version which was disseminated throughout our MSM for public consumption

The US on Wednesday charged Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the self-proclaimed mastermind of the 9/11 terror attacks, along with four alleged plotters, vowing to seek the death penalty in a much-awaited military trial.

The other four Guantanamo Bay inmates are Walid Muhammad Salih Mubarak Bin ‘Attash, Ramzi Binalshibh, Ali Abdul Aziz Ali, and Mustafa Ahmed Adam al Hawsawi.

They will face charges including terrorism, hijacking, conspiracy, murder and destruction of property. They could face the death penalty if found guilty, the Pentagon confirmed.

Al-Qaeda ‘plotting another 9/11’ from Afghanistan

Al-Qaeda fighters have returned to Afghanistan and will use the country as a base to launch September 11-style attacks on Western cities, according to the American ambassador to Kabul.

by Con Coughlin, Daily Telegraph, 31 March 2012

Ryan Crocker told The Daily Telegraph that if the West was to leave Afghanistan too early, al-Qaeda would be able to increase its presence.

With the US preparing to withdraw the majority of its combat forces from Afghanistan next year, Mr Crocker warned: “If we decide we’re tired, they’ll be back.

“Al-Qaeda is still present in Afghanistan. If the West decides that 10 years in Afghanistan is too long then they will be back, and the next time it will not be New York or Washington, it will be another big Western city.”

Mr Crocker, 62, who previously served as ambassador to Iraq, said that while progress had been made, Afghanistan would need Western support for years to come.
