Pretty good article actually presents some 9/11 truth over at Counterpunch. This was largely avoided these past 13 years. Perhaps a new editorial policy.

Project Bojinka could be happening this time. Thank Obama and Co. for destroying Libya and empowering Jihadist lunatics to seize weapons and aircraft…
If America is attacked with Libyan jetliners, Barack Obama and his high official co-conspirators should be tried for high treason. They directly aided and abetted Jihadist militias inside Libya in 2011. They bombed the government of Libya to put these Islamists in power.

I remember discussing this absurdity with my wife a couple of years ago. They were helping the Syrian Jihadis, who had massacred thousands already. They are the US, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey and the rest of the NATO clowns. Probably Israel as well, but that might be trickier.
So they helped radical Jihadi terrorists inside Syria for three years.
The obvious endgame would be–to get what they really want–use the Jihadis they had helped as the cassus belli. Now they had to go fight the terrorism they created!
I doubted that could fly. It doesn’t pass the laugh test. It doesn’t align with the paradigms and myths even. It’s so flagrantly obvious, so ridiculous on its face, but here we are today. ISIS terrorists are sweeping across Asia, and now “we” can go bomb them, and ANYONE ELSE NEARBY “WE” DON’T LIKE.
As in the 1980 Afghan/Soviet Jihad, the US creates the monster, with a lot of money and a lot of help from its “friends.” Then it turns around, and screams: there are terrorists in the world!
Oh really? You mean the ones you were arming, training, funding and transporting around the region? Oh yeah, them.
This sad formula assumes our population are drooling imbeciles.
Are they wrong?
ISIS was helped by US “partners,” and the US has aided their cause in Syria for years in the UN and with covert supplies, including weapons, and a training program in Jordan. The treasonous US puppet masters assume their Jihadi lieges are easily vanquished should the US decide to wage war on them. The Jihadis assume the US is so corrupt and stupid that it is helping the people who want to kill them.
This goes beyond “policy” a banal word that masks reality. It is material support for terrorism. It is potentially treason. It is official US policy to help radical Jihadist “terrorists” in a bunch of nations today. Isn’t that supposed to be a problem?

Although Cockburn doesn’t make obvious connections, like: TREASON, this is a good summation. His 9/11 analysis of course falls short, but it does finger the Saudis and Pakistani intelligence, our two supposed good buddies in the region.
It boggles my mind how the entire “alternative” journalism sector can ignore high treason in front of their faces for more than a decade and skate around it, repeatedly. Some kind of cognitive dissonance must infect these people. There’s an unwritten rule in the media that if you accuse the government of committing crimes you’ll never work again. And so we devolve into monstrous fascism in real time, because no one in the press has the balls to call it how it is.
That part is sickening, frankly.

Note to Ignorant Americans:
The US and its allies have supported ISIS since at least 2012, as they were the main force fighting against the government of Bashar al Assad in Syria. The US has politically supported these terrorists and has done nothing to thwart their activities. Quite the opposite, they have sent arms and “non-lethal aid” directly, trained fighters in Jordan and encouraged their regional allies to support these terrorists directly.
Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar and others have directly aided ISIS. These are top US Middle East allies. This is a coordinated effort to surround Syria, and the borders of Saudi Arabia and Turkey have been kept open to allow these terror brigades to bring arms back and forth across, giving them safe haven and arming them inside Syria.
The US knows this is happening. The US public is kept in the dark. It is the strategy of the US to encourage radical Sunni militias, as it did in the 1980s in Afghanistan — a proven, successful strategy — in the “Jihad” against the Soviet Union. This is not new, but Americans are woefully ignorant of their own history and machinations around the world.
This turn toward terror militias traces back to the 2007 Seymour Hersh expose in The New Yorker: The Redirection.
None of these events is unexpected. None are contrary to US interests. The “Islamic State” has succeeded in breaking up Iraq, so that it will not be a strong nation with a strong military in the future. It has led to the fall of Maliki, the Iran-friendly Shi’ite president who kicked the US military out of Iraq. The people of the region are unimportant to US imperialists. Only the control of gas and oil matters. That should be obvious by now. The Sunni Islamic State has pledged to wipe out all Shi’ites and that includes the entire nation of Iran. Do the math.
These terror brigades would simply not exist without US allies funding and arming them.

“Saudi Arabia has created a Frankenstein’s monster over which it is rapidly losing control. The same is true of its allies such as Turkey which has been a vital back-base for Isis and Jabhat al-Nusra by keeping the 510-mile-long Turkish-Syrian border open. As Kurdish-held border crossings fall to Isis, Turkey will find it has a new neighbour of extraordinary violence, and one deeply ungrateful for past favours from the Turkish intelligence service.”
Article doesn’t provide much new reporting. It does, however, nicely tie Hillary Clinton, then Secretary of State, to Treason, covering up Saudi state support for Al Qaeda:
“Saudi sympathy for anti-Shia “militancy” is identified in leaked US official documents. The then US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wrote in December 2009 in a cable released by Wikileaks that “Saudi Arabia remains a critical financial support base for al-Qa’ida, the Taliban, LeT [Lashkar-e-Taiba in Pakistan] and other terrorist groups.” She said that, in so far as Saudi Arabia did act against al-Qa’ida, it was as a domestic threat and not because of its activities abroad. This policy may now be changing with the dismissal of Prince Bandar as head of intelligence this year. But the change is very recent, still ambivalent and may be too late: it was only last week that a Saudi prince said he would no longer fund a satellite television station notorious for its anti-Shia bias based in Egypt.”
Prince Bandar is a central figure in this ISIS movement to wage a war of annihilation against the Shia and to create a caliphate across Asia. The US sees this as wonderful, as the main Shia stronghold is, of course, Iran.
Turkey’s role has been different but no less significant than Saudi Arabia’s in aiding Isis and other jihadi groups. Its most important action has been to keep open its 510-mile border with Syria. This gave Isis, al-Nusra and other opposition groups a safe rear base from which to bring in men and weapons. The border crossing points have been the most contested places during the rebels’ ‘civil war within the civil war’. Most foreign jihadis have crossed Turkey on their way to Syria and Iraq. Precise figures are difficult to come by, but Morocco’s Interior Ministry said recently that 1122 Moroccan jihadists have entered Syria, including nine hundred who went in 2013, two hundred of whom were killed. Iraqi security suspects that Turkish military intelligence may have been heavily involved in aiding Isis when it was reconstituting itself in 2011. Reports from the Turkish border say Isis is no longer welcome, but with weapons taken from the Iraqi army and the seizure of Syrian oil and gasfields, it no longer needs so much outside help.
Of course I would disagree with the title of this article, by Patrick Cockburn:
Ultimate disaster for the US? Bullshit. This has been their outright strategy since 2006:
It’s a disaster for the little people who live there, not for the US or Britain who were kicked out of Iraq by the Iran-friendly Maliki regime. Now they are destroying Maliki, and the “Caliphate” seeks to destroy Iran and Shia generally. This sort of hyperbolic gibberish, from Patrick Cockburn, makes me doubt his sincerity sometimes.
