Fake War on Terrorism
The sponsorship of terrorism by western governments, targeting their own populations, has been a taboo
subject. Although major scandals have received cursory coverage in the media, the subject has been allowed
to immediately disappear without discussion or investigation. Therefore the appearance this year of two
major studies of this subject is a welcome breakthrough, and provides essential reading for anyone
struggling to understand the events of September 11, 2001 and the post September 11 world.
The studies are complementary. NATO's Secret Armies, Operation Gladio and Terrorism in Western
Europe by Daniele Ganser concerns terrorism sponsored by American and British intelligence in Western
Europe and Turkey between the end of World War II and 1985. The War on Truth, 9/11, Disinformation,
and the Anatomy of Terrorism by Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed chronicles the cultivation and sponsorship of
militant Islamic terrorism by the intelligence services of the United States, Britain and Russia from 1979 to
the present. Both studies are models of scholarship -- meticulously documented and carefully reasoned --
but the world they reveal will boggle the mind of the most wild-eyed conspiracy theorist.

Al-Qaeda' is a Manufactured Intelligence Front
Kawther Salam | June 25 2004
The terrorist event of New York 11 September 20001, and the terror event of Madrid on
11 March 2004, and other terror events commonly connected to Islam, are clearly not related
to Islam if we consider that the Al-Qaeda terror organization was established by the C.I.A
in the 1980s. Al-Qaeda is nothing but a conveniently "Islamic" front which enables the C.I.A.
to commit crimes in the name of Muslims. It is well known that the Mujahadeen terrorists of
Afghanistan were organized, trained and funded by the C.I.A. using the Pakistani ISI as a
"cut-out" in order to lure the Soviet Army into Afghanistan at the end of 1979. The Mujahedeen
can be seen as C.I.A. terrorism with an islamic name and "islamic" perpetrators. Afghanistan
has, for all purposes, been destroyed by these fanatics in furtherance of American interests.
International Terrorism Does Not Exist
by General Leonid Ivashov *
General Leonid Ivashov was the Chief of Staff of the Russian armed forces when the
September 11, 2001, attacks took place. This military man, who lived the events from
the inside, offers an analysis which is very different to that of his American colleagues.
As he did during the Axis for Peace 2005 conference, he now explains that international
terrorism does not exist and that the September 11 attacks were the result of a set-up.
What we are seeing is a manipulation by the big powers; this terrorism would not exist
without them. He affirms that, instead of faking a “world war on terror”, the best way
to reduce that kind of attacks is through respect for international law and peaceful cooperation
among countries and their citizens.
Terrorists in High Places

Wars are not waged by those who have to fight them.
Those who fight wars know too well their terrible
costs. Wars are waged by those who profit from them
with minimal or no risk to themselves. War is big
business and it is immensely profitable for a select
few who are insulated from the effects of war’s
environmental impacts and social costs. War never
serves the interest of working class people. They are
the result of menacing forces of greed and power
masquerading as benevolent government, insulating us
from contrived acts of terror. They are in fact
anything but munificent.

Because the recently passed Military Commissions Act (aka: The Torture Act) included
immunity for all administration officials from war crimes prosecution, the CCR is initiating
a case in German courts next week, "under their law, which is universal jurisdiction, which
basically says a torturer is essentially an enemy of all humankind and can be brought to
justice wherever they’re found."

Bush's Failed Policy of Kill, Kill, Kill
By Robert Parry
October 6, 2006
On March 30, 2003 – 3 ½ years ago and only 10 days after the U.S. invasion of Iraq –
I solicited assessments from a few trusted military analysts and wrote that “whatever
happens in the weeks ahead, George W. Bush has ‘lost’ the war in Iraq. The only
question now is how big a price America will pay, both in terms of battlefield casualties
and political hatred swelling around the world.”
The article, entitled “Bay of Pigs Meets Black Hawk Down,” argued that one of Bush’s
most egregious miscalculations was his assumption that the Iraqis wouldn’t fight a foreign
invader. Like the wishful thinking in the Bay of Pigs disaster (Cuba, 1961), U.S. policymakers
assumed an invasion would be welcomed, not opposed.

Presidential advisor Karl Rove has been touting his "October surprise," aimed at keeping
Republicans in office . While Rove will most certainly exploit the fear factor, the question
remains if we'll let ourselves be fooled -- yet again.
It's worth remembering that only five years ago, the US was reeling under anthrax attacks
which killed five people and ground postal services to a halt. It's also worth noting what happened next.
Even though the Bush administration soon realized that the anthrax source was domestic,
Vice President Dick Cheney played the war card in claiming Osama bin Laden's terrorist
training manuals teach "how to deploy these kinds of substances ." While Congress
admirably resisted adopting the odious Patriot Act in the weeks following 9/11, both chambers
quickly caved when two Democratic senators' offices were subsequently targeted with
anthrax-laced letters. Coincidentally, Congress also resisted renewing the Patriot Act in
February 2006, but after a nerve agent scare on Capitol Hill led to the quarantine of 200 people,
it caved once again
'The Enemy Within'
Posted on Monday, August 21 @ 09:49:13 EDT
Carl Jung predicted our present sense of malaise as early as 1957 in his "The Undiscovered
Self", decrying "...apocalyptic images of universal destruction" brought on by WWII and an
atomic age ushered in when the United States dropped weapons of mass destruction on two
cities in Japan. In its wake, Jung was fearful that 40 percent of the population -- called a
"mentally stable stratum" -- might not be able to keep the lid on mass psychosis; it might be
unable to restrain the spread of "dangerous tendencies", presumably: fascism, fanaticism,
militarism, and intolerance. Jung seems to have been less concerned with external threats.
The dangerous tendencies he feared were home grown.
The list above is mine -- not Jung's, though I believe Jung would have approved. To that list
I would add that most dangerous symbiotic cocktail: fear and hate.
Clearly -- terrorism is a real threat but no more so than the dangerous and deliberate exploitation
of it. Clearly -- the subversion of Democratic ideals is a clear and present danger but no more
so than home grown subversion by demagogues. What difference does it make to me if my
"inalienable rights" are denied me by Alberto Gonzales or by the Taliban? Clearly -- terrorist
attacks upon the soil of any Democratic nation is worrisome but no more so than a home grown
policy that both nurtures, feeds, and inspires opposition at home and terrorism abroad. Clearly --
Jung's list of "dangerous tendencies" must include our own tilt toward fascism, an unintended
result that will have accomplished Bin Laden's goal without his ever having to leave his mythic cave in
Only 20% Of Britons Believe Blair On Terror Threats
Neo-Fascists need to stage real attack to reclaim credibility and obedience
Paul Joseph Watson/Prison Planet.com | August 22 2006
A figure that is both telling and foreboding - that only one fifth of British citizens believe the
Blair government is telling the truth on terror alerts - increases the chances of a staged attack
to reinforce the notion that Islamo-Fascism is a real danger and not the invention of a ruthless
Neo-Fascist government that has all but abolished freedom in the United Kingdom.

The characters and behavior of the few known liquid bomb suspects are completely inconsistent

demeanor of the 7/7 patsies.
A CCTV image (top) shows one of the suspects, Tayib Rauf, entering a bulk order supermarket in
Birmingham just two hours before anti-terror police swooped in to grab him for his alleged role in a plot

"A thing is not necessarily true because a man dies for it." ~ Oscar Wilde
All Americans know that Memorial Day is a federal holiday. Most Americans know that it
commemorates U. S. soldiers who died in military service for their country. Many Americans
believe that U. S. soldiers died defending our freedoms. Few Americans believe that they died
for a lie.
They died in vain; they died for a lie.
This does not mean that they were not brave, heroic, well-meaning, or patriotic. They may have
fought with the best of intentions; they may have sacrificed themselves for others; they may have
been sincere in their belief that they were fighting for a good cause; but they died for a lie.
George W. Bush IS a Liar
By Robert Parry
April 14, 2006
The White House is taking umbrage over new press reports that George W. Bush misled the
American people on a key justification for invading Iraq. But Bush’s latest excuse – that he was
just an unwitting conveyor of bad information, not a willful purveyor of lies – has been stretched
thin by overuse.
Nevertheless, White House spokesman Scott McClellan lashed out at a Washington Post report that
in May 2003, Bush described two Iraqi trailers as mobile biological weapons labs although two days
earlier a Pentagon field investigation had debunked those suspicions in a report to Washington.
“The lead in the Washington Post left the impression for the reader that the President was saying
something he knew at the time not to be true,” McClellan said on April 12, 2006. “That is absolutely
false and it is irresponsible, and I don’t know how the Washington Post can defend something so irresponsible.”
But the truth is that Bush has been caught, again and again, relying on lies and distortions to confuse the
American people about the Iraq War. Sometimes, he can blame U.S. intelligence agencies for the false
information, but other times, he simply lies about facts that he personally knows.
Founder of Delta Force: "There is No Real Threat to the US in the World"
"Bush has formented world war three"
"Americans voted for a second Bush administration out of fear, so fear is what they're going to
have from now on."
Q: What's your assessment of the war in Iraq?
A: Utter debacle. But it had to be from the very first. The reasons were wrong. The reasons of
this administration for taking this nation to war were not what they stated. (Army Gen.) Tommy
Franks was brow-beaten and ... pursued warfare that he knew strategically was wrong in the long
term. That's why he retired immediately afterward. His own staff could tell him what was going to
We have fomented civil war in Iraq. We have probably fomented internecine war in the Muslim
world between the Shias and the Sunnis, and I think Bush may well have started the third world
war, all for their own personal policies.

Sometimes it's hard to understand just how Michael Chertoff understands his title, secretary
of homeland security. Take this week, when Mr. Chertoff appeared before executives of the chemical
industry, whose plants remain one of the nation's greatest vulnerabilities more than four years after
9/11. Mr. Chertoff did not chastise the industry for failing to protect their plants adequately. He
proposed weak federal safety standards. He did not even fully embrace a recently introduced bipartisan
Senate bill that would create meaningful standards.

Director Eugene Jarecki has put together a wonderful, moving and important film
that examines the modern American military machine and the modern American
His film is the 2005 Sundance Film Festival’s Documentary Award-winning
Why We Fight. The title of the film recalls Frank Capra’s World War II films –
popular movies that promoted, eulogized and helped mythologize America’s
participation and sacrifice in that war.
We fought in World War II for many reasons, but mostly it seems, because we believed.
Why We Fight carefully illustrates how our beliefs, our national character, our shared
view of ourselves as Americans have changed since World War II. Jarecki utilizes
President Eisenhower’s famous farewell speech of January 17th, 1961. In this speech,
Ike warned of a growing military-industrial complex, and its possible negative impact
on our democracy and our republic. As the late Colonel David Hackworth used to
remind me, Eisenhower spoke of the dangers presented by military-industrial-congressional complex.
TWO ENDURING MYTHS
Posted April 29, 2005
There are two enduring myths that permeate American culture, which we

They are the myth of an independent news industry consisting of diverse
interests competing to bring you the truth, and the myth of our
government protecting us from evil and harm.
THE SECRET GOVERNMENT - Bill Moyers
THE SECRET GOVERNMENT
The following is a transcript of a 1987 PBS TV program, narrated by Bill Moyers:
THE SECRET GOVERNMENT The Constitution In Crisis
Bill Moyers: "The Secret Government is an interlocking network of official functionaries,
spies, mercenaries, ex-generals, profiteers and superpatriots, who, for a variety of motives,
operate outside the legitimate institutions of government. Presidents have turned to them
when they can't win the support of the Congress or the people, creating that unsupervised
power so feared by the framers of our Constitution. Just imagine that William Casey's
dream came true. Suppose the enterprise grew into a super-secret, self-financing,
self-perpetuating organization. Suppose they decided on their own to assassinate Gorbachev
or the leader of white South Africa . Could a President control them and what if he became the
enterprise's public enemy Number One? Who would know? Who would say no?"

The Best Enemies Money Can Buy
From Hitler To Saddam Hussein to Osama bin Laden -
Insider Connections and the Bush Family's Partnership
with Killers of Americans
Brown Brothers, Harriman - BNL- and the Carlyle Group
By Michael C. Ruppert
FTW, Oct. 9, 2001 - Since the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade
Center and the Pentagon, major media powerhouses and the increasingly
influential alternative media alike have begun to focus attention on Bush
family connections and a long history of arming and financing America's
attackers in the months and years prior to the outbreak of war. Recent
stories in the Wall Street Journal (Sept. 27 & 28, 2001), ABC News (Oct.
1, 2001), as well as a host of reports from so-called alternative news
sources have begun to focus attention on the Bush family's
profit-making role in creating and arming our enemies.
The following is a more comprehensive look at the documented history of
these relationships that will also open some new avenues of inquiry for
the press, Congress and the American people.
In a world now filled with biowarfare agents, backpack nuclear devices,
and chemical weapons like Sarin gas -- where there are people in many
countries with reasons to oppose the United States -- the Bush
Administration is following predictable strategies in a way that redefines the
concept of brinksmanship. Human survival may depend upon the will and
the ability of both the Congress and the press to focus on these
relationships and to take appropriate action. Moreover - and I am not the first
to say this - if a national security priority is to seize the financial
assets of those who support terrorists, then perhaps we should start
right here at home.
Wars Are a Contrivance of Military-Industrial Complex
By Karl Schwarz
There is an interesting part at the beginning of the movie Braveheart -
“I shall tell you of William Wallace. Historians from England will say I am a
liar, but history is written by those who have hanged heroes.”
That is a very true statement. I have watched over the years as one president after
another has conducted themselves in dishonorable ways and then control the facts
and suppress the truth so history is written to make them look good. None in the
history of this nation have been more guilty of such actions than George H W Bush,
Bill Clinton and George W Bush. Each of them has had more spin doctors than advisors with brains.
To understand why Washington, DC does what it does, you must first understand
who the enemy really is. Our biggest enemy is within our gates. Our biggest enemy is homegrown.
"Sibel Edmonds: Absolutely. And I cannot go into any details. … But even the
AIPAC spy scandal, as far as I'm reading today, is just touching the surface of it.
It's going only to a certain degree. It doesn't go high enough, in what it involves and
how far it goes, and that's as far, and the best – as far as I can explain."
The following is the transcript of my Aug. 13 interview with the courageous FBI
linguist/whistleblower Sibel Edmonds. What connection does Sibel Edmonds' story
have to the prosecution of Larry Franklin, Steve Rosen, and Keith Weissman of the
Pentagon/AIPAC spy scandal? And for that matter, to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001?
The answer has something to do with international drug, weapon, and money-laundering rings,
and their ties to terrorists and unnamed officials of the Departments of State and Defense.
This mess also goes back to at least 1997. Sibel says that when the truth comes out, it
will make the AIPAC case look "lame" by comparison. Who are the State Department
officials 1 and 2 and the Defense Department officials 1 and 2 referred to in the AIPAC
indictments? Are they the same unnamed officials in the new Vanity Fair piece
about Edmonds ? Are these the same neocons who hired Iranian spy Ahmed Chalabi,
lied us into war with Iraq , drew up the occupation plans, and leaked the name of Valerie
Plame to the press? Is the quashed federal investigation out of Chicago into corruption on
the part of high-level members of both parties, referred to in the article as "the reason" Sibel
was gagged by John Ashcroft, related to the investigation of terrorist financing by former
agent Robert Wright? What does Patrick "Bulldog" Fitzgerald know about it? Which countries
involved in the international heroin market are the subject of such "sensitive diplomatic relations"
that their involvement in 9/11 should not be known to the people of the United States ? Uzbekistan ?
Tajikistan ? Kyrgyzstan ? Pakistan ? Kosovo?
All Roads Lead to PNAC
(Deep Background to Fitz Saga)
With indictments due this week, those not familiar with PNAC might want to
know how/why we came to this historic moment in time.
George W. Bush constantly reminds the nation about the threat of terrorism
that began with 911 but he leaves out a few important details that you should know.........
In June 1997, the Project for a New American Century (PNAC) was born.
Populated by influential Movers of industry and Shakers of public opinion, the
PNAC is an organization united in the vision for a global U.S. empire - "Pax Americana" -
through coercion and military domination. Their philosophy can be simply summarized:
What is slowly emerging from Al Qaeda activities in Central Asia in the
1990s is the extent to which they involved both American oil companies
and the U.S. government. By now we know that the U.S.-protected
movements of al Qaeda terrorists into regions like Afghanistan , Azerbaijan
and Kosovo have served the interests of U.S. oil companies. In many cases
they have also provided pretexts or opportunities for a U.S. military commitment
and even troops to follow.
In my book Drugs, Oil, and War, I quote again from Olivier Roy:
"It is the Americans who have made inroads in Central Asia , primarily
because of the oil and gas interests. Chevron and Unocal are political
actors who talk as equals with the States (that is, with the presidents).”
It is clear they talk as equals in the current Bush Administration. Both
the President and Vice-President are former oilmen, as were some of their
oldest friends and political backers, like Kenneth Lay of Enron

When Seeing and Hearing Isn't Believing
By William M. Arkin
Special to washingtonpost.com
Monday, Feb. 1, 1999
"Gentlemen! We have called you together to inform you that we are going to overthrow the
United States government." So begins a statement being delivered by Gen. Carl W. Steiner,
former Commander-in-chief, U.S. Special Operations Command.
At least the voice sounds amazingly like him.
But it is not Steiner. It is the result of voice "morphing" technology developed at the Los Alamos
National Laboratory in New Mexico.
By taking just a 10-minute digital recording of Steiner's voice, scientist George Papcun is able, in
near real time, to clone speech patterns and develop an accurate facsimile. Steiner was so impressed,
he asked for a copy of the tape.
Bin Laden Tape Probably Faked by CIA
Back in 2002, the Bush administration was chagrined when the world's foremost voice
identification experts, a group in Swizterland called IDIAP analyzed several Bin Laden
tapes and concluded that a "CIA-verified" bin Laden tape was NOT Bin Laden, but
someone whose voice patterns resembled the terrorist's. Now again we have a Bin Laden
tape that arrives just when Bush needs a "terrorist diversion." And once again, we have
only the CIA "experts" verifying the authenticity. So why since 2002 hasn't the IDIAP
been called in to verify these always conveniently timed tapes? And why is no CIA
expert ever actually named?
And as further evidence of how closely the US media is colluding with Bush, journalists
who once queried the institute for their opinion on the authenticity of bin Laden tapes
are no longer doing so.

The Bin Laden Tapes: Fact or Fiction
by Jason Kernahan
05/10/04 "ICH" -- The audiotapes of Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein have
become an extremely important link between these figures and the outside world.
Through them they have been able to convey political rhetoric to their enemies and
followers alike, to issue threats, and even claim responsibility for terrorist acts perpetrated
by their followers.
So while their usefulness can hardly be questioned, how much do we really know about
the origins of these audiotapes, or their authenticity? Precious little time is dedicated to
such considerations. But as we will see, closer scrutiny will actually shake our certainty
in both departments and hopefully inspire a reevaluation of the standards by which we
judge similar evidence in the future.
