A year and a half late to the party… A fucking year and a half, an illegal coup and a fucking war or three…

How Many Neo-Nazis Is the U.S. Backing in Ukraine?
Not all the members of the Ukrainian ultranationalist militias the U.S. is training have SS tattoos, and not all espouse fascism. But enough do to be worrisome.

US Government Protection of Al-Qaeda Terrorists and the US-Saudi Black Hole

In reality, as I shall show, royal family protection from Qatar and Saudi Arabia (concealed by the 9/11 Commission) was repeatedly given to key figures like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged “principal architect of the 9/11 attacks.” This finding totally undermines the claim that the wars fought by America in Asia since 9/11 have been part of a global “war on terror.” On the contrary, the result of the wars has been to establish a permanent U.S. military presence in the oil- and gas-rich regions of Central Asia, in alliance with Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Pakistan – the principal backers of the jihadi terrorist networks the U.S. been supposedly fighting. Meanwhile the most authentic opponents in the region of these Sunni jihadi terrorists – the governments of Iraq, Libya, Syria, and Iran – have been overthrown by U.S. invasion or military support (in the case of Iraq and Libya) subverted with U.S. support (in the case of Syria), or sanctioned and threatened as part of an “axis of evil” (in the case of Iran). The protection to terrorists described in this essay, in other words, has been sustained partly in order to support the false premises that have underlain U.S. Asian wars for more than a decade. And the blame cannot be assigned all to the Saudis. Two months before 9/11, FBI counterterrorism expert John O’Neill described to the French journalist Jean-Charles Brisard America’s “impotence” in getting help from Saudi Arabia concerning terrorist networks. The reason? In Brisard’s paraphrase, “Just one: the petroleum interests.”5 Former CIA officer Robert Baer voiced a similar complaint about the lobbying influence of “the Foreign Oil Companies Group, a cover for a cartel of major petroleum companies doing business in the Caspian. . . . The deeper I got, the more Caspian oil money I found sloshing around Washington.”6 The decade of protection for terrorists demonstrates the power of this secretive dimension of the American deep state: the dark forces in our society responsible for protecting terrorists, over and above the parallel government institutionalized on and after 9/11.7 –

…Consider the FBI’s instruction in 1993 to the Canadian RCMP to release the al-Qaeda organizer Mohamed Ali, who then proceeded to Nairobi in the same year to begin planning the U.S. Embassy bombing of 1998. –

Let’s see.  Russia warned US intelligence, twice, both before and AFTER his trip to Dagestan in 2012 that Tamerlan Tsarnaev was a terrorist.  Saudi Arabia warned the United States at least once.  The FBI even interviewed Tamerlan, the alleged mad bomber, and his family.  Then for some cloudy, unexplained reason shrouded in mystery and deception, the FBI failed to keep track of Tamerlan when he returned from Chechnya and Dagestan, a known hotbed of Islamic radicalism where car bombs explode on a regular basis.

A casual internet search would have turned up the most radical Jihadist videos and pronouncements, and Tamerlan made himself persona non grata at his local Mosque as well.  His radical outbursts got him booted from the Mosque for being too nuts.

Oh, but FBI never heard of “the suspects” before, and needed to enlist the public’s help to identify them from photographs.

On the other hand, in the case of that terrorist fiend Julian Assange of the “terrorist website” Wikileaks, it’s a different matter altogether.

“At least a dozen American governmental agencies, including the Pentagon, the FBI, the Army’s Criminal Investigative Department, the Department of Justice, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the Diplomatic Security Service, are assigned to the WikiLeaks case, while the CIA and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence are assigned to track down WikiLeaks’ supposed breaches of security. The global assault—which saw Australia threaten to revoke Assange’s passport—is part of the terrifying metamorphosis of the “war on terror” into a wider war on civil liberties. It has become a hunt not for actual terrorists but a hunt for all those with the ability to expose the mounting crimes of the power elite.”
