Max Blumenthal, the editor of the news site The Grayzone, was arrested on the morning of October 25 on a fabricated charge related to the siege of the Venezuelan embassy in Washington, DC that took place between April and May.

A team of DC police officers appeared at Blumenthal’s door at just after 9 AM, demanding entry and threatening to break his door down. A number of officers had taken positions on the side of his home as though they were prepared for a SWAT-style raid.

Blumenthal was informed that he was accused of simple assault by a Venezuelan opposition member. He declared the charge completely baseless.

New data from Turkey reveals that almost all of these militias were armed and trained in the past by the CIA and Pentagon.

 

In a video message, one of the invading fighters promised mass ethnic cleansing if Kurds in the area refused to convert to his Wahhabi strain of Sunni Islam. “By Allah,” the fighter declared, “if you repent and come back to Allah, then know that you are our brothers. But if you refuse, then we see that your heads are ripe, and that it’s time for us to pluck them.”

 

The Usual Suspects:

Back in 2012, however, when Clinton was Secretary of State, she junketed to Istanbul to rally support for those very same militias during a “Friends of Syria” conference convened by Erdogan.

CNN’s Clarissa Ward was an especially enthusiastic promoter of the FSA, embedding with its fighters, painting them as a heroic resistance. When she returned to Syria years later, she used a top mouthpiece of Syria’s local Al Qaeda affiliate as a fixer for her unequivocally pro-opposition “Inside Aleppo” series.

The warmonger propagandists sit at home and concoct lies for more war, while these reporters travel to Syria to report on actual conditions on the ground.  The warmongers are discredited liars and need to go find work in a different field.

Review of Max Blumenthal’s The Management of Savagery (2019): ‘AQ is on our side’

 

Blumenthal’s message is crystal clear: US-Israel policy from 1979 on has been to create and support Muslim terrorism, even as it claims to be fight terrorism.* It used them in Afghanistan to undermine the Soviet Union, and has used them ever since to secure control of world politics. Create the problem, and provide the solution.

 

* Since 9/11, that is High Treason. US officials should be tried for Treason for any material aid they gave to Al Qaeda in Libya, Syria, and elsewhere.
