>There’s been a trial ongoing in the UK since late 2005 concerning a leaked memo that detailed Bush and Blair’s plan to bomb al-Jazeerah offices in Qatar. Civil servant David Keogh and MP’s researcher Leo O’Connor are accused of breaching the official secrets act, a concept that one would think has no place in any bone fide democracy.
Keogh is said to have passed the record of the meeting to researcher O’Connor. The details of the minutes, deemed too “secret” to reveal in court, include Bush and Blair’s chat about how best to bomb the offices of al-Jazeerah and make it appear as a justifiable act under the bogus war on terror.
In making the case against the two men, (who in any just society would be lauded as heroes) Blair’s foreign policy adviser Sir Nigel Sheinwald said a leak would have “sparked worldwide anger, put UK forces at risk, and had the potential to “raise international tensions”, to which I can only reply “no shit sherlock, and for very good reasons!” You see, in Blair’s fascist state, black is white, up is down and anyone revealing that the government is planning to engage in what amount to war crimes is the criminal, rather than those who are planning to engage in the war crimes. Get it? Do you understand now? Perhaps the point needs to be clarified.
Over in Iraq, the same psychopathic ‘morality’ is being passed off as ‘normal’ where a US commander of the appropriately named ‘Camp Cropper’ has been arrested for “aiding the enemy”. Camp Cropper is a US military gulag and torture center for innocent Iraqi civilians outside Baghdad and Lt Col William Steele apparenlty had the audacity to give Iraqi detainees there free use of a mobile phone. String him up I say! I mean, we can’t have US military personnel showing ANY human kindness to the tens of thousands of desperate Iraqis languishing at Bush’s pleasure in Iraq or any other ‘theatre’ of the war on terror.
Meanwhile the global propaganda campaign that is designed to create the ‘reality’ of a ‘clash of civilisations’ proceeds apace with a different “leaked report”, this time one that does not result in the leakers appearing in court, mainly because this one helps to prop up the Israel-US-British war on terror rather than expose it for psychopathic war-mongering that it is.
The report, carefully concocted out of thin air by the British Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC), which is basically MI5’s false flag terror central, claims that Al-Qaeda leaders in Iraq are planning the first “large-scale” terrorist attacks on Britain and other western targets. The “leakers” were, of course, careful to include the claim that the “al-Qaeda” operation was to be carried out “with the help of supporters in Iran. Surprise surprise.
Just for good measure, the back room boys at MI5 thought it would be a good idea to claim that “one operative had said he was planning an attack on a par with Hiroshima and Nagasaki”, just to tie in the nuke connection and therefore Iran. Of course, the terror masters at MI5 are confident that the news just in that Iran is at least 8 years from making ONE nuke is no threat to the British and world public swallowing this latest piece of nonsense. In a final attempt to validate the claim, one UK “counter terrorism source” said
“It could be just a reference to a huge explosion,” said a counter-terrorist source. “They (al-Qaeda) have got to do something soon that is radical otherwise they start losing credibility.
It’s strange, but for some reason I imagined the words “Bush-Blair-Olmert) in the brackets in the paragraph above and suddenly it all made sense.
The claim, it is claimed, was contained in a letter, allegedly written by someone called Abdul al-Hadi al-Iraqi, “an Iraqi Kurd and senior al-Qaeda commander”, or so we are told, and asked to believe wholesale with no real evidence. In fact, the only yardstick we have for assessing scary letters from terrorists is when Bush and the CIA were caught fabricating a letter from “al-qaeda” that claimed that they were nearing defeat.
Of course, all of this talk of leaked memos also reminds us the infamous leaked Downing street memo, where Blair’s war fanatics decided to fabricate all sorts of claims about Saddam, including the ridiculous assertion that Saddam could attack Britain with a long range missile within 45 minutes!
To complete the recent glut of bogus ‘terror alerts’, a senior commander of the Taliban stated a few days ago that Osama bin Laden is orchestrating militants’ operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
“He is drawing plans in Iraq and Afghanistan … Praise God he is alive,” Mullah Dadullah told Al Jazeera television.
The first problem here is that it is very, very probable that Bin Laden has been doing little more than pushing up daisies in some remote area of an Islamabad or Riyadh graveyard for the past few years, at least Saudi intelligence appears to be convinced of that fact. But they’re not the only ones.
Back in November 2001, French intelligence reported that in July that year, Osama had checked into the American hospital in Dubai for Dialysis, where he was visited, incidentally, by the local CIA station chief. Such was the state of the health of Bush’s nemesis, that in 2000 he had his own personal dialysis machine shipped to his “base” (a nice two story house) at Kandahar in Afghanistan.
One month later, citing a Taliban leader, the Pakistan Observer stated that Osama had died a peaceful death due to an untreated lung complication.
On the airing of a tape of Bin Laden in early 2002, CNN “terrorism expert” didn’t need his “terrorism expert” credentials to be enable him to state the obvious:
This is a man who was clearly not well. I mean, as you see from these pictures here, he’s really, by December he’s looking pretty terrible. But by December, of course, that tape that was aired then, he’s barely moving the left side of his body. So he’s clearly got diabetes. He has low blood pressure. He’s got a wound in his foot. He’s apparently got dialysis … for kidney problems
Apparently reluctant to take the word of a “terrorism expert” on medical matters, CNN decided that they needed an honest to god doctor, so they dragged one, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, who opined:
You can look [at pictures from a December 2001 video] and notice that he has what some doctors refer to as sort of a frosting over of his features — his sort of grayness of beard, his paleness of skin, very gaunt sort of features. A lot of times people associate this with chronic illness. Doctors can certainly look at that and determine some clinical features.
But even more than that, it’s sometimes possible to differentiate the specific type of disease or illness that he may be suffering from. The sort of frosting of the appearance is something that people a lot of times associate with chronic kidney failure, renal failure, certainly someone who is requiring dialysis would have that.
Later that year (2002) even US puppet President of Afghanistan (or should that be mayor of Kabul) couldn’t hold his tongue any longer and blurted out that Osama was a goner.
Then it was the turn of FBI Terrorism… I mean eh…Counter-Terrorism Chief US Federal Bureau of Investigation’s counter-terrorism chief, Dale Watson, to state the frustratingly obvious:
“Is (Bin Laden) alive or is he dead?” Mr Watson said. “I am not really sure of the answer… I personally think he is probably not with us anymore but I have no evidence to support that.”
Still, the skeptics were not convinced, so close friends and confidants, understandably miffed at the repeated knocks to the credibility and mortality of their departed brother, decided to send Bin Laden’s will to a few news agencies in an attempt to close the case.
Finally, the CIA took the hint last year and, according to the NY Times, closed a unit that for a decade had the mission of hunting Osama bin Laden and his top lieutenants. The unit, known as Alec Station, was disbanded late last year and its analysts reassigned within the C.I.A. Counterterrorist Center, the officials said.
Despite all of this, Mullah Dadullah (is that really his name, or is that his CIA pet name?) had no qualms about waxing flowery about the exploits of Osama’s ghost:
“Do you remember the martyrdom operation inside the Bagram base which targeted a senior American official … this operation was the result of blessed plans put by him,” Dadullah said. Jazeera said the U.S. official Dadullah was referring to was Cheney.
“He (bin Laden) guided us through it,” he said, adding that no Afghan would have been able to penetrate the base if it was not for the world’s most wanted militant.
Yes, you see Osama is the only Islamic militant who drags a dialysis machine behind him. He is also dead. A dead guy dragging a dialysis machine is a very effective way to create a distraction while the other more corporal militants get on with the job of trying to off the walking hate-sack Dick Cheney. Seriously who is this “Mullah Dadullah”?
Funny you should ask.
He was captured in May last year by international troops (i.e. US troops), and probably given the run down on what was expected of him for the coming 2006-2007 WOT season in his role as scariest terrorist in Afghanistan. Then he was let go again.
Funnily enough, two days before Mullah Dadullah’s implausible claims about Bin Laden were broadcast, he was busy being surrounded by 200 “coalition” troops as he and others gathered for a meeting in the mountain village of Keshay in Uruzgan province on Saturday last. The result of the apparently short-lived siege, according to the Pakistani press, was 11 members of the Taleban killed, including Mullah Dadullah.
All of which sets the scene for even more fake war on terror hilarity when we find ourselves reading reports (which we surely will) about two dead men vouching for each others unbelievable feats of derring-do in the ZioCons fantasmagorical war on terror.
