Left, British Foreign Secretary (1997-2002) had the courage to tell the people the truth about Al Qaeda in 2005.
In early 2003 he had resigned as Government Leader in the House, due to "the decision to commit Britain to military action in Iraq without international agreement or domestic support."
'Al Qaeda' isn't an organization. It's a propaganda term
for Western public consumption.
By Richard Evans
Although NOT a genuine terrorist group, Al Qaeda has a history.
Just as Lord Cromer (Evelyn Baring 1841-1917), created the Muslim Brotherhood in the 1890s, the CIA created Al-Qaeda in the 1980s in Afghanistan. Afghanistan was Russia's Vietnam--the long exhausting war leading to the collapse of the USSR.
The people who really control the West create phony enemies (like Al Qaeda) in order to wage war against controlled opposition. How can you lose when you control your own enemy?
Former British Foreign Secretary, Robin Cook in 2004 told the House of Commons: "Al Qaeda" is not really a terrorist group but a database of international mujaheddin and arms smugglers used by the CIA and Saudis to funnel guerrillas, arms, and money into Soviet-occupied Afghanistan. AL-QAEDA was never anything more."
In a column for the Guardian July 9, 2005, four weeks before his death, Cook said Al-Qaeda was an instrument of western intelligence: "Bin Laden was, a product of a monumental miscalculation by Western security agencies. Throughout the 80s he was armed by the CIA and funded by the Saudis to wage jihad against the Russian occupation of Afghanistan. Al-Qaida, literally "the database", was originally the computer file of the thousands of mujaheddin who were recruited and trained with help from the CIA to defeat the Russians."
"The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al Qaida. And any informed intelligence officer knows this. But there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an identified entity representing the 'devil' only in order to drive the TV watcher to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism...The country behind this propaganda is the US . . ." -
The 'War on Terror' paradigm eliminates the well established protocols of war and peace: now we have an enemy without a military; an evil nemesis without a face. Robin Cook said too much and paid the price. On August 6, 2005, he was dead, suffering a "heart attack" while hiking with his wife. This is reminiscent of the 2003 murder of Dr. David Kelly, a British weapons expert who also challenged the Iraq War rationale.
TERRORISM AS A PROTECTION RACKET
I remember the whole summer of 2005 perfectly; that's when the British and French began to wake up. The French had voted down the EU Constitution and the Dutch followed suit. Brussels had to withdraw the referendum to put the brakes on a PR disaster. As the G8 wrapped up in Edinburgh, Al Qaeda staged the false flag 7/7 Bombings to lock London down -- to INTIMIDATE the UK public before they got out of hand.
Left. Mossad agents arrested by the PA for attempting to set up AL QAEDA cells in the Gaza Strip. THE FULL STORY IN BBC.
But now history is being rewritten with phony stories about "Why Obama Won't Take on al-Qaeda in Iraq Anymore." In the face of such audacious deceptions, we have to remember how the Bush Administration lied us into Iraq with phony stories of "Weapons of Mass Destruction," yellowcake uranium, mobile biological weapons labs, chemical weapons, etc. in 2002 and 2003 during the PR run-up to the US invasion of Iraq.
However, there was never any pretence of Al-Qaeda in Iraq in 2002 and 2003. So a story about "Why Obama Won't Take on al-Qaeda in Iraq Anymore" is blatant historically revisionism.
Al Qaeda' is handy all-purpose term.
Sometimes they used 'Al Queda' to refer to NATO backed mercenaries. In
that scenario they're proxies for Western forces, as in Libya and
Syria. In Fallujah last week politicians and media are calling genuine
Iraqi resistance fighters 'Al Qaeda'. So in Syria they call their
mercenary proxies Al Queda, but in Iraq they call those who oppose the
Iraqi IMF puppet regime 'Al Qaeda".
To maintain the Al Qaeda illusion, all independent news correspondents had to be swept from the field. NO PROBLEM. They have all been murdered. The graph below documents the impunity with which media professionals in Iraq have been killed.
In Iraq, at least 404 media professionals have been killed since the US invasion in 2003, among them 374 Iraqis, according to The Brussels Tribunal statistics. The impunity in Iraq is far worse than anywhere else in the world. None of the journalist murders recorded in Iraq in the past decade has been solved. Not a single case of journalists' killings has been investigated to identify and punish the killers.
NOW It's the same story of journalists killings in Syria.
A perfect example of our murder-the-media policy came out in a discussion moderated by David R. Gergen at the Davos Economic Summit in 2005 The panel included Richard Sambrook, the worldwide director of BBC radio, U.S. Congressman Barney Frank, Abdullah Abdullah, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Afghanistan, and Eason Jordan.
During this discussion about the staggering number of journalists killed in Iraq, Eason Jordan, Chief News Executive of CNN, said that he knew of 12 journalists who had not only been killed by US troops in Iraq, but had been intentionally targeted. He repeated the assertion to make his point clear. At the time, our government intentionally killing journalists made the Abu Ghraib Prison scandal pale in comparison. David Gergen visibly disturbed by the allegation that the United States would target journalists, tried to counter Eason Jordan's claims. David insisted the US military was always the providers of safety and rescue for all reporters.
TRUTH ABOUT AMERICA'S TRUE ROLE IN IRAQ IS ALWAYS SUPPRESSED.
With all independent journalists and news correspondents swept from the field, it's easy to lie about events in Iraq and Syria, part of a probable march toward the long awaited WW III.
To me, what is happening now seems simple enough. In September, The Obama Administration decided it could NOT muster support for a US bombing campaign against Syria like the outrageous 2011 US and NATO destruction of Libya. Instead with the US and UK backing terrorists groups under a vague banner of Al-Qaeda, we will obviously now wage a proxy war using paid terrorists instead of openly using US troops and bombs. In conclusion, Al Qaeda is a US-created false opposition used to justify expanded war.
