Al-Qaeda is a CIA creation. That sounds like a crazy assertion because for nine years we’ve heard from the establishment media and corrupt political leaders that Al-Qaeda is a transnational menace, and the Western world’s biggest security threat in the 21st century. But, there is nothing crazy about restating the truth. What’s crazy is to keep denying this simple fact as impossible, and continuing to blindly trust the voices of authority just because they are in authority.
In general, Islamic terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda and Hamas were created, funded, and trained by the CIA and Mossad to serve their own interests in the Middle East. By framing Palestinian resistance as terrorism to the world, Israel’s leaders are able to carry out their objectives of creating a unified Israeli state, and destroying the Palestinian resistance. Likewise, under the umbrella of the war on terrorism, the Anglo-American establishment is in the position to secure large areas in the Middle East and Central Asia, providing them the military footing in a region of great geopolitical importance.
Reporter Richard Sale exposed Israel-Hamas connections in an article called “Hamas History Tied To Israel” that appeared in the United Press International back in June of 2002. Sale wrote:
Israel and Hamas may currently be locked in deadly combat, but, according to several current and former U.S. intelligence officials, beginning in the late 1970s, Tel Aviv gave direct and indirect financial aid to Hamas over a period of years.
Israel “aided Hamas directly — the Israelis wanted to use it as a counterbalance to the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization),” said Tony Cordesman, Middle East analyst for the Center for Strategic Studies.
Israel’s support for Hamas “was a direct attempt to divide and dilute support for a strong, secular PLO by using a competing religious alternative,” said a former senior CIA official.
It is dumbfounding to first learn that Israel gave financial support to Hamas, especially since Israeli leaders frequently accuse Iran of funding terrorism, and meddling in the Palestinian peace process. One expects the Iranian regime to be a supporter of terrorism because it is undoubtedly brutal, and anti-democratic, but to find out that Israel, a Western-style democracy, funds and trains terrorists, and not just any terrorists, but terrorists that recruit other unwitting terrorists who seek Israel harm, is a bewildering realization. What else are Israeli leaders capable of? What else are U.S. leaders capable of? If they arm and fund terrorists, then what is the depth of their evil crimes?
Thinking like a cold-hearted foreign policy strategist is a prerequisite to understanding the sophisticated rationale behind the Israeli, American, and British intelligence agencies joint-policy of recruiting Islamic terrorists, funding and training them, and letting them loose into the wild. Since Islamists are the enemies of popular leftist movements that promote social and democratic values, it is natural for Western and Israeli elites, who also hate grassroots democratic movements rising up in the Middle East because they threaten their power, to extend their hand to the Islamists and provide them with resources and training, in the name of “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.”
The secret arrangement between Western intelligence agencies and Islamists worked perfectly in Iran in 1953 when the CIA lend support to the religious radicals, whose antagonism against Muhammad Mosaddeq’s government strengthened the chances of a successful CIA coup against the democratically elected Prime Minister Mosaddeq. Twenty six years later, of course, the religious radicals grew out of their subservient role, ousted the U.S.-backed Shah, and turned into the monsters that they are today.
Iran’s Islamic Revolution showed that propping up terrorists and radicals can backfire, it may take a generation or two, but there is always blowback in warfare, regardless if it is fought by means of deception.
Israel’s support for Hamas in its early development was both direct, and indirect. Investigative reporter Robert Dreyfuss explained the foundations of Islamic fundamentalism in his book “Devil’s Game: How the United States Helped Unleash Fundamentalist Islam.” On January 26, 2006, the day of Hamas’s victory in Palestinian parliamentary elections, Dreyfuss appeared on Democracy Now to promote his book, telling Amy Goodman about the establishment of Hamas. Here is an excerpt from the interview:
And starting in 1967, the Israelis began to encourage or allow the Islamists in the Gaza and West Bank areas, among the Palestinian exiled population, to flourish. The statistics are really quite staggering. In Gaza, for instance, between 1967 and 1987, when Hamas was founded, the number of mosques tripled in Gaza from 200 to 600. And a lot of that came with money flowing from outside Gaza, from wealthy conservative Islamists in Saudi Arabia and elsewhere. But, of course, none of this could have happened without the Israelis casting an approving eye upon it.
And during these years, during that 20-year span, the Hamas organization was a bitter opponent of Palestinian nationalism, clashed repeatedly with the P.L.O. and with Fatah, of course, refused to participate in the P.L.O. umbrella. And just as during the ’50s and ’60s, the Muslim Brotherhood fought against the Nasserists, the Baath Party, the communists and the rest of the Arab left, in the 1970s and ’80s, the Muslim Brotherhood fought against the Palestinian national movement. Now that’s not even a surprise, you know. In 1970, when the king of Jordan launched his massive counter-offensive against the Palestinians there in that event called Black September, the Muslim Brotherhood was a strong supporter of the king and actually backed his effort, which resulted in thousands of Palestinians killed in a virtual civil war in Jordan.
So there’s plenty of evidence that the Israeli intelligence services, especially Shin Bet and the military occupation authorities, encouraged the growth of the Muslim Brotherhood and the founding of Hamas.
Members of the foreign policy establishment in Washington, who endlessly preach to the American people and the world about the threat of Islamic terrorism, and hide proof of their lies behind claims of national security, never bring up the facts that Dreyfuss documented in his book, and many others have demonstrated since the war on terror began. Despite what a lot of people like to believe, high-ranking government officials in the U.S. don’t comment on the ties between the CIA and Islamic terrorists because such facts would reveal their incompetence and stupidity, but because they would reveal their criminality, and treasonous activities. Believing that the Washington establishment is filled with incompetent fools is serious misreading of present and recent history.
Looking away from the facts, and continuing to mistakenly believe that 9/11 was done by Al-Qaeda, is the easy thing to do. Sometimes we need to challenge prevailing conventions, and see with new eyes. Then, everything becomes clear, including the problems, and the solutions.
Andrew Gavin Marshall helps us see with new eyes by laying out the deep connections between the CIA and Al-Qaeda in his three part series “The Imperial Anatomy of Al-Qaeda.” In part one, called “The CIA’s Drug-Running Terrorists and the “Arc of Crisis,” Marshall reflects on the mythic significance of the 9/11 attacks in the popular mind, and how the Anglo-American-Israeli elite manipulated a fearful and nervous Western public in the immediate hours and days after the attacks, before committing thousands of soldiers in an imperial and criminal war disguised as a war on terrorism:
The events of 9/11 pervade the American and indeed the world imagination as an historical myth. The events of that day and those leading up to it remain largely unknown and little understood by the general public, apart from the disturbing images repeated ad nauseam in the media. The facts and troubled truths of that day are lost in the folklore of the 9/11 myth: that the largest attack carried out on American ground was orchestrated by 19 Muslims armed with box cutters and urged on by religious fundamentalism, all under the direction of Osama bin Laden, the leader of a global terrorist network called al-Qaeda, based out of a cave in Afghanistan.
The myth sweeps aside the facts and complex nature of terror, al-Qaeda, the American empire and literally defies the laws of physics. As John F. Kennedy once said, “The greatest enemy of the truth is not the lie – deliberate, contrived, and dishonest – but the myth – persistent, pervasive, and unrealistic.”
This three-part series on “The Imperial Anatomy of Al-Qaeda” examines the geopolitical historical origins and nature of what we today know as al-Qaeda, which is in fact an Anglo-American intelligence network of terrorist assets used to advance American and NATO imperial objectives in various regions around the world.
The manufactured image of Al-Qaeda is dominant in the war on terror because the state terrorists who control Washington, Tel Aviv, Ottawa, London, and Paris desired a new enemy to occupy the Western mind. It doesn’t matter that there are less than 100 Al-Qaeda members in Afghanistan, as long as people back home are kept afraid, and clueless.
John Stockwell, a top former CIA officer, saw modern warfare unfolding in this deceptive and evil way. Back in the 1980s, he said that “if the Soviet Union were to disappear off the face of the map, the United States would quickly seek out new enemies to justify its own military-industrial complex.” Looking back now, his insight was prophetic. The September 11, 2001 events created in the minds of the American people the myth of the “terrorist” enemy, which was enough to justify aggressive invasions in Afghanistan and Iraq, massive military spending, the destruction of civil liberties, torture gulags, and the creation of a technological police state in America.
As Chief of the Angola Task Force, Stockwell overlooked U.S. interests in the Angolan Civil War in 1975. Shortly after, he resigned and published In Search of Enemies, a book that many regard as the best book on the CIA by an insider. Stockwell’s criticism exposed the lies and crimes of the U.S. establishment in a way that few have. He said America was not fighting communism, but independent political movements in Third World nations that threatened the interests of Wall Street, U.S. multinational corporations, and the global oligarchs.
In his book “The Praetorian Guard: The U.S. Role in the New World Order“ Stockwell described the United States military/intelligence apparatus as something like a giant mercenary company, doing the dirty work for the powerful global financial interests that rules Washington through debt, and deception, writing, “… the United States [is] cast in the role of Praetorian Guard, protecting the interests of the global financial order against fractious elements in the Third World.”
The “fractious elements” that Stockwell spoke of are springing up rapidly inside of America’s own borders, as more and more Americans are finding out that their country’s slide into Third World despotism was not a spontaneous historical development, but the result of a planned and deliberate policy by the global financial elites who seek a new world order in which freedom has no part.
In my last article, I asked “when will U.S. leaders confess to the American people that America carries out false-flag attacks as part of its foreign policy,” but I was naive to even the raise the question. The traitorous war criminals will not confess about anything willingly. As we see from George Bush’s new book Deception Points, the image-making has only begun. The dark and twisted individuals who were involved in the 9/11 attacks and oversaw the destruction of America will spin and lie until the end, much like Lee Atwater, the political strategist behind the Reagan and Bush presidential campaigns in the 1980s, who lied about converting to Christianity and getting a new perspective “on the nature of humanity, love, brotherhood,” on his deathbed, before dying from a brain tumor.
In the documentary Boogie Man: The Lee Atwater Story by award-winning filmmaker Stefan Forbes, veteran Republican campaign strategist Ed Rollins said that Atwater “was telling this story about how a Living Bible was what was giving him faith and I said to Mary, ‘I really, sincerely hope that he found peace.’ She said, ‘Ed, when we were cleaning up his things afterwards, the Bible was still wrapped in the cellophane and had never been taken out of the package,’ which just told you everything there was. He was spinning right to the end,” (quote taken from Wikipedia’s page on Lee Atwater).
The tale about Atwater’s image crafting extends to the Washington establishment’s reliance on lies, and spinning to appear better than they are. Likewise, Atwater’s fall from grace before he died was a telling sign, and a prelude to the establishment’s upcoming fall from grace. The question is not when the devilish crooks will finally collapse, but when the American people will stop believing their lies, including, most of all, their lie about the 9/11 attacks. Once disbelief about the official 9/11 story goes mainstream, the collapse of the rotten establishment will happen soon after.
I hope everybody soon realizes that the great “terrorism” crisis that we’re all facing springs from lies. And it needs to happen very soon. We must stop being naive, and taking the words of perpetual liars seriously. Deference towards authority figures when those same authority figures are actively stabbing you in the back, front, and both sides, is suicide. It is madness. A self-induced death without the self even realizing it.
Anybody who critically examines the September 11 attacks, the war on terror, and the multi-trillion financial con led by Wall Street and the White House can’t help but conclude that America is suffering a slow national death at the hands of its national guardians. It is murder by deception, and trickery.
The traitorous murderers go all the way up to the White House, through a maze of conspiracy, and all the way back to the high point of the Cold War when Kennedy was assassinated by the same group of overlords that now wield power in Washington to the detriment of the country, and the rest of the world. Their capacity for evil knows no bounds.
The few who look deeply into the subjects of 9/11 and the JFK murder understand the gravity of the current reality. Everything we’ve been told about modern American, and world history is false.
While it is true that America is currently under attack, the plotters who are aiming to take down America and rebuild upon its ruins are not Islamic terrorists, or communists, but international financial con men who wield power over the President, the Congress, the Senate, the Pentagon, the private Federal Reserve Bank, and intelligence agencies. They have a dark vision for the new world, and they were busy implementing it for the last several decades while the rest of us were engaged with our jobs, families, and everyday lives.
People naively assumed that the politicians they elected to represent them in Washington, Ottawa, London, and other capitols around in the Western world were defending their best interests, but all the while financial and corporate tricksters who were part of the secret conspiracy for world government successfully corrupted America’s top political leaders, top federal agencies, and top news institutions in order to keep the public clueless about their past, and fearful about their future.
It is easy to understand why conspiracy theorists think Al-Qaeda did 9/11. They repeatedly ask, “why hasn’t anybody in the media said anything,” or “if 9/11 was an inside job, it wouldn’t be a secret for this long.” They carelessly overlook the fact that modern oppression in the Western world begins and ends with the oppression of thought, so although there are many free-willed individuals in the media who can speak openly, they are largely ignorant about 9/11 and feel comfortable with demonizing anybody that diverts from the official view. It is truly an Orwellian world.
The Western media’s propaganda and censorship is more advanced compared to other regions in the world because it suppresses free thought so much that it doesn’t have to suppress free speech like other dictatorial regimes. Also, censorship in the West requires less work, as there are not many dissident views that threaten the establishment in any meaningful way.
The official conspiracy theorists may not know it, but their submission to the official view of 9/11 makes them slaves. Not physical slaves, but slaves to the ideas, and plans of the authorities in power. Believing whatever you’re told about reality and history is a form of mental enslavement, and it is the only form of enslavement in which the slave does not even know that he is a slave. In other words, a brainwashed voter in modern society is less free than a slave who lived in a previous age because he is denied both freedom, and knowledge of his slavery to authority. At least the old slaves knew of their condition, unlike the modern naive dupes.
“Man,” wrote 19th century author Samuel Butler, “is the only animal that can remain on friendly terms with the victims he intends to eat until he eats them,” (Samuel Butler’s Notebooks, pg. 53). Keep this quote in mind as you watch former President Bush’s interviews in the days ahead. Remember that although he appears hospitable and attentive, and would make a fun drinking buddy, he is not your friend, nor was he ever. And the same is true with President Obama, who lies to you every day about the 9/11 attacks, and Wall Street’s heist. Just because they are in the highest positions of authority does not make them your guardians, and your protectors.
To accept the truth that we have all been betrayed by our top authority figures like Bush, Obama, Harper, Blair, and Cameron, is a hard thing to do, but we must learn to accept it. They share with the global elite a great contempt for the public, and look at people as mindless dupes who deserve to be hoodwinked. But there is a way to fight back as a victim of government brainwashing. Stop being a dupe. Stop being so naive. Stop trusting what leaders in power say, because everything they say is a lie. Start believing in your own mind. In your own eyes. Without free minds, we can’t fight for a just, free, and peaceful world. Before we can end the criminal war on terror, we must win the war on the mind. And that begins with you deconstructing the 9/11 lie, and searching deep within your own soul, where the war between truth and lies, good and evil, a free mankind and an enslaved mankind, is being fought.
