The “War On Terror” Has Changed, And Not One In 1,000 Americans Has Noticed

George Washington's picture





 

In George Orwell’s novel 1984,  the country of Oceania has been in a war against Eurasia for years.

Oceania suddenly switches sides, naming Eastasia as its enemy and making its mortal enemy, Eurasia, its new ally.

The government uses propaganda to convince people that, “We’ve always been at war with Eastasia”.  The dumbed-down public doesn’t even notice that they’ve switches sides, and blindly rallies around Eurasia as its perennial friend and ally.

The same thing is happening in real life with Al Qaeda.

Western governments and mainstream media have admitted that Al Qaeda is fighting against the secular Syrian government, and that the West is supporting the Syrian opposition … which is helping Al Qaeda.

Similarly, the opposition which overthrew Libya’s Gadaffi was mainly Al Qaeda … and they now appear to be in control of Libya (and are instrumental in fighting in Syria.)

The U.S. also funds terrorist groups within Iran.

Of course, Al Qaeda was blamed for 9/11, and the entire decades-long “War on Terror” was premised on rooting out Al Qaeda and related groups.

So the fact that we now consider Al Qaeda fighters to be allies in any way, shape or form is positively Orwellian.

Of course, as Jimmy Carter’s National Security Adviser admitted on CNN, we organized and supported Bin Laden and the other originators of “Al Qaeda” in the 1970s to fight the Soviets.  (he also told the Senate in 2007 that the war on terror is “a mythical historical narrative”. )

As professor of strategy at the Naval War College and former National Security Agency intelligence analyst and counterintelligence officer John R. Schindler documents, the U.S. supported Bin Laden and other Al Qaeda terrorists in Bosnia.

But obviously we lost control and they turned against us … and then took us years to hunt down and kill Bin Laden.

Maybe, but:

  • A retired Colonel and Fox News military analyst said:

    “We know, with a 70 percent level of certainty — which is huge in the world of intelligence — that in August of 2007, bin Laden was in a convoy headed south from Tora Bora. We had his butt, on camera, on satellite. We were listening to his conversations. We had the world’s best hunters/killers — Seal Team 6 — nearby. We had the world class Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) coordinating with the CIA and other agencies. We had unmanned drones overhead with missiles on their wings; we had the best Air Force on the planet, begging to drop one on the terrorist. We had him in our sights; we had done it ….Unbelievably, and in my opinion, criminally, we did not kill Usama bin Laden.”

  • A United States Congressman claims that the Bush administration intentionally let Bin Laden escape in order to justify the Iraq war

The shenanigans started even before 9/11:

  • Attacks on the Twin Towers with planes were foreseen for years, but the U.S. did nothing to stop them.
  • A high-level military intelligence officer says that his unit – tasked with tracking Bin Laden prior to 9/11 – was pulled off the task, and their warnings that the World Trade Center and Pentagon were being targeted were ignored
  • The CIA may have helped many of the 9/11 hijackers get their visas to the U.S.

Indeed:

We’ve always been at war with Eastasia …

there was a reason Osama took so long to be broguth in, and there was a reason he wasn't brought in alive. the stories he'd tell about his dealing with the american government made his capture something that could not happen.

It's taken for granted that Bin Laden is dead. Would you kill such a "treasure trove of intelligence"?
You would arrange a nice cover story that gets rid of the "corpse", hide him in a dark hole, and work him over forever.

This is a government story and everything government says is assumed to be a lie unles it is unequivocally proved otherwise.

For me Bin Laden is dead when I personally see the corpse validated genetically by ten qualified people who don't work for government. Otherwise we just have to go with the supposition that makes the most sense, and Bin Laden being dead when he did not need to be dead makes no sense at all. if you think about it, it makes a lot of sense for everybody to think he's dead.

There is an Al Quaeda Division of theCIA ("AQD") -one of our best units. These are the quality type guys that took out Kennedy and kept it in the realm of conspiracy for 50 years. AQD  are our elite fighters - they travel extensively -fom guarding the opium as it is harvested in Afghanistan  -to Libya, Iraq, Iran , Syria. They are the best we have to offer- makes me Goddammed proud to be an AmeriKan.

Al Qaida was started by then Major Ollie North, bin Laden and CIA.   Initially trained by US special forces (very few of whom are still alive, fewer still will talk) and CIA.  After operational status,  it has always been controlled by/with CIA "assets" and assistance.

I don't consider myself a conspiracy theorist, but I have a question that touches on the crux of this article.  According to the government, media, and popular thought we are at war with Muslim extremists who flew planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and made an unsuccessful attempt that ended in PA.  Yet, according to Wikileaks documents which our government admits were actual intellegence stolen from them by Mr. Bradley Manning, George Bush Jr. directed an operation to overthrow the government of Egypt.  He allegedly paid folks to create a revolution aka "Arab Spring" after 9/11.  This was then continued under Obama in Lybia and now Syria.  Using simple logic (and ignoring all other crap about 9/11) this simply does not make sense.  Bush is indeed stupid, but not that stupid.  There would also be someone who would have leaked this if they felt it was against the interest of the US (see current events for that thought process -ie- national security leaks by Obama).  On what planet does it make sense to pay the group you are at war with to overthrow governments (that currently cooperate with you and that you can control) so they can install the very Millitant group who says they want you dead and plan to bomb you again?  Anyone?  Please?

Zawahiri is reliable and delivered in our interest(recently). Bin Laden for whatever reason stopped working for our mutual interests long ago..

IMO, we made a deal with Zawahiri to "free" Egypt in exchange for his help killing OBL and other matters. Zawahiri has always been primarily concerned with Egypt just as OBL had a soft spot for Saudi Arabia. If you examine the drone strikes in Pockistan, Yemen etc. it is evident that we were not just killing Al Qaeda but were hitting OBL's main men. Finally one of OBL's wives was sent directly from a Zawahiri camp to OBL's hideout and bang he's dead within months. A couple of months later Egypt is "free". The US traded Egypt for a secure Saudi Arabia with a Libyan light sweet cherry on top.

As for Syria it obviously must be taken out before an attack on Iran for reasons too numerous to list.

 

I have posted the details on numerous occasions with supporting documentation. Bottom line is we have a new deal with Zawahiri...until we don't. I have no doubt that Zawahiri would trade his life for an Egypt free of Muhbarak. Instead of his own life he traded OBL's and assumed control of the organization in the process.

whats true, whats propaganda?? are these posts about 911, .gov approved or not?? who knows, only those who did it and those that had it done.

One question remains: who benefited the most from all this terror war scare?

1. western security alphabet agencies, is my guess did very well.

2. big banks and multi nationals got bail outs while the war goes on.

3. police all got armed up, so arms industry didn't do too bad.

4. more power to central govs esp Washington DC and the executive branch.

who lost: Freedom lost, Americans and Brits welcome to drones gestapo like goons at airports, and cameras on every street spies on internet and phones watching us all. restrictions on economic freedom ...sad and good reason to have disgust at our leaders.

War makes profits for the elite, peace is less profitable. 

There is alot of surplus unemployed population that is inconvenient, and a large war can solve that problem too. 

A war against a "real threat" is likely to be more profitable.  If no "real threat" exists, then it makes sense to create one.  The Caliphate is a dream of Muslim extremists and would make a great enemy of the west.  So "we" are helping them build it.  Your tax dollars at play! The first phase of the Muslim invasion of Europe (third column) is well underway. 

This is a long game, i doubt i'll live to see the end of it.  From their point of view, nations are owned subsidiaries that can be deployed as necessary (like on a "risk" game board) to maximise profits and control.  It is easy to increase controls in wartime.  Then the terms of the next "peace" increase control further.

There are a lot of things over the last decades that are questionable.

But its quiet obvious that the  AlQuaeda-thingy doesn't fit here. They have been trained for the Afghanistan-war, they are also somehow involved in the Taliban-issue in Afghanistan recently and they are now active in Syria, against the current Regime/Government whatsoever.

When I really think about it: Beeing a Taliban doesn't mean that you're involved in AlQuaeda. How much of AlQuaeda has been in Afghanistan recently? I can't remember that much news about it, so I would say that AlQuaeda was not the issue here, or that they were used against the Taliban to some extend.

Next issue is 9/11, we were told that this was planned by BinLaden and the AlQuaeda, but it remains unclear as there is not much evidence. Even if the attack was done by islamists, it doesn't lead necessarily to the AlQuaeda. Could also turn out to be a complete scam.

Next step was the invasion in Iraq, they said it's done because of WMD (busted) and because of AlQuaeda,  busted also, AlQuaeda came to the Iraq after the invasion - Saddam Hussein and AlQuaeda was a no-go.

So, my opinion - and the opinion of my little tin-hat - turns AlQuaeda to some extend into a CIA/Saudi-controlled instance and that the killing of beardman in Pakistan whilst watching TV is a political scam.

There is an old Hopi who claims the first World War started when the white man discovered the New World and that eventually this civilization known as America will fail as mankind forgot the rules of how to live on this world.

When I look out there for truth and integrity, I think of this old Hopi's words and those spoken by the Man from Galilee, they really are not much different about how things will be...

Today I read this post, know it to be true and realize how much we sheep will take and not do anything.

Maybe that is what we should do, nothing.  Not support these people, buy their goods, pay their taxes and so on.  But that would be too much of an inconvenience, wouldn't it?

The U.S. wanted the phony "War on Terror" which is REALLY A "War Of Terror" to continue after 9/11. No Way They Wanted It Stopped.

It wouldn't do to have the top guy Bin Laden DEAD in DEC. 2001 EVEN if he WAS. Where would the urgency come from,...the "We Need To Catch Him" BULLSHIT.

The HUGE BLACK BUDGETS, the taking away of our Constitutional Rights, and all those new ACTS: Patriot 1 and 2, Military Commissions, NDAA etc., and others, could NOT OCCUR without the HUNT FOR BIN LADEN continuing.

 

...And the GRAND THEFT, all the rigging of the MARKETS, and all the other scandles,...all follow the deliberate perversion of our basic LAWS, caused by 9/11.

 

Thats why he couldn't be DEAD even if he WAS.

EAT IT:

I started to read your piece but found so many UN-Truths I couldn't go further.

RE: Bin Laden..

Pure BULLSHIT, Bin Laden was on the payroll of the CIA up until 9/11. He could not possibly have been involved or accomplished the "Mission". Treachercy and TREASON were the order of the DAY

"But obviously we lost control and they turned against us … and then took us years to hunt down and kill Bin Laden."

What a crock of SHIT. We had him under dialysis, under our purview.

He had nothing to do with it. 9/11/01 that is and NO GOVERNMENT AGENCY has charged him with it..

He was killed in Afghanistan in Dec. 2001 and the entire hoax of killing him in Pakistan was completely BOGUS, and a political EXPLOITATION to use his death for POLITICAL GAIN..

 

Go do some real fucking homework. He was a formidable friend and a key ally of Bush 11 who stabbed him in the back set-him-up as the fall guy for 9/11. What are friends for???

 

That is why the entire Bin Laden family was allowed to leave when NO FLIGHTS were allowed. A complete air shut down was in place, and yet they FLEW out of the U.S.  and the group below. WTF does that say?

 

Look instead to the FULL 747 El Al Flight that was able to leave on 9/11/01 with a plane full of Mossad Agents and their connections. key politicians who were here to witness it, and their handlers..
