ISIS' Strategy Leak Reveals Syrian Takeover Plot, US "Created A Group Of Very Intelligent Enemies"

Tyler Durden's picture

While western propaganda would like ISIS to appear to be run by religious fanaticism, it instead, as RT reports, has been functioning more like a secret intelligence service, calculating every operation and drafting plans of a covert Syrian takeover for years. According to detailed organization chart and strategy blueprints seen by Der Spiegel, it has been revealed that the former colonel in the intelligence service of Saddam Hussein's air defense force (among many ex-Saddam officers who now make up the leadership of ISIS) was secretly pulling the strings at ISIS for years. From recruitment and training to PsyOps tactics and overall strategy, ISIS mastermind Haji Bakr rose to power after he became "bitter and unemployed," when the US suddenly dissolved the Iraqi army after the 2003 invasion.

When Haji Bakr was shot and killed after a brief firefight in the town of Tal Rifaat on a January morning in 2014, not even those on the mission knew the true identity of the tall man in his late fifties. Samir Abd Muhammad al-Khlifawi was the real name of the Iraqi, and as Der Spiegel reports, the former colonel in the intelligence service of Saddam Hussein's air defense force had been secretly pulling the strings at ISIS for years.

But when the architect of the Islamic State died, he left something behind that he had intended to keep strictly confidential: the blueprint for this state. It is a folder full of handwritten organizational charts, lists and schedules, which describe how a country can be gradually subjugated. Der Spiegel has gained exclusive access to the 31 pages, some consisting of several pages pasted together.

 

 

They reveal a multilayered composition and directives for action, some already tested and others newly devised for the anarchical situation in Syria's rebel-held territories. In a sense, the documents are the source code of the most successful terrorist army in recent history.

 

 

For the first time, the Haji Bakr documents now make it possible to reach conclusions on how the IS leadership is organized and what role former officials in the government of ex-dictator Saddam Hussein play in it. Above all, however, they show how the takeover in northern Syria was planned, making the group's later advances into Iraq possible in the first place.

 

 

"Our greatest concern was that these plans could fall into the wrong hands and would never have become known," said the man who has been storing Haji Bakr's notes after pulling them out from under a tall stack of boxes and blankets. The man, fearing the IS death squads, wishes to remain anonymous.

 

The "Lord of the Shadows," as some called him, sketched out the structure of the Islamic State, all the way down to the local level, compiled lists relating to the gradual infiltration of villages and determined who would oversee whom. Using a ballpoint pen, he drew the chains of command in the security apparatus on stationery. Though presumably a coincidence, the stationery was from the Syrian Defense Ministry and bore the letterhead of the department in charge of accommodations and furniture.

 

What Bakr put on paper, page by page, with carefully outlined boxes for individual responsibilities, was nothing less than a blueprint for a takeover. It was not a manifesto of faith, but a technically precise plan for an "Islamic Intelligence State" -- a caliphate run by an organization that resembled East Germany's notorious Stasi domestic intelligence agency.

Page-by-page the documents reveal a sophisticated plan, and as RT reports, not so much for jihad, but for building a caliphate run by cold calculations...

The organizational charts and chains of command drawn by the top strategist reveal a clearly-defined Secret Service structure with surveillance and security departments, prison and interrogation divisions, weapons and technology experts, as well as sharia judges and instructors.

 

The records, Spiegel reports, contain details of ISIS espionage operations and other intelligence activities to covertly gain power in territories of their interest and make sure no dissent would be possible after an actual armed takeover.

 

The documents explain how men would initially be recruited by ISIS in target towns and villages via local cells disguised as Islamic missionary centers. The recruits then would report back to ISIS leadership with information on the powerful locals as well as what their sources of income were, people’s political orientation and any other information which could be used to blackmail them later.

 

“We will appoint the smartest ones as Sharia sheiks... We will train them for a while and then dispatch them,” the ISIS mastermind Haji Bakr, whose real name was Samir Abd Muhammad al-Khlifawi, had noted in one of the papers. “Brothers” would be selected in each town to marry the daughters of the most influential families, in order to "ensure penetration of these families without their knowledge.”

 

The Islamic State leadership gathered any information useful for dividing and subjugating the local population. As far as Syria was concerned, they used whoever they could and changed allegiances whenever they felt like it, with their informants including former intelligence spies as well as opponents of the regime.

 

Another phase of the plan included the elimination of any powerful people and potential leaders who could organize the local population against the infiltrators. But in towns where the resistance grown too strong, the publication writes, ISIS temporarily withdrew allowing local Syrian rebels confront the government forces.

 

...

 

The terrorist organization apparently realized most of their plans, and by late 2012 things in Syria were a mess with Pesident Assad’s pushed back while hundreds of local councils and rebel brigades took control of the territory. This anarchic mix was exploited by this tightly-organized group of ex-officers to create the terrorist caliphate that straddles much of Syria and Iraq today.

As we noted previously, ex-Saddam army officers now dominate ISIS leadership. Bakr was a “highly intelligent, firm and an excellent logistician,” as an Iraqi journalist described the former officer. But when the US suddenly dissolved the Iraqi army after the 2003 invasion he became “bitter and unemployed.”

 

*  *  *

We leave it to RT to conclude, perfectly summing up the lack of strategic thought in US foreign policy:

The reason why ISIS are so successful as a terrorist organization is partly because many of their founding members, including the top strategist, were part of Saddam Hussein’s professional security apparatus. By shattering the well-trained army of Saddam, the US apparently created a group of very intelligent enemies.

Mission Accomplished indeed...

Not exactly. Things are much more complicated I'm afraid because of the "brilliant" actions by the neocon clowns.

Facinating shit. Seems much like the take over of the USA.....

The organizational charts and chains of command drawn by the top strategist reveal a clearly-defined Secret Service structure with surveillance and security departments, prison and interrogation divisions, weapons and technology experts, as well as Progressive judges and instructors.

The records.. contain details of Progressive espionage operations and other intelligence activities to covertly gain power in territories of their interest and make sure no dissent would be possible after an actual takeover.

The documents explain how Hispanics would initially be recruited by DNC in target towns and villages via local cells disguised as Soros missionary centers. The recruits then would report back to DNC leadership with information on the powerful locals as well as what their sources of income were, people’s political orientation and any other information which could be used to blackmail them later.

The Soros-Clinton leadership gathered any information useful for dividing and subjugating the local population. As far as Washington was concerned, they used whoever they could and changed allegiances whenever they felt like it, with their informants including former intelligence spies as well as opponents of the regime.

Another phase of the plan included the elimination of any powerful people and potential leaders who could organize the local population against the infiltrators. But in towns where the resistance grown too strong, the publication writes, DNC temporarily withdrew allowing local Obama rebels confront the government forces.

You're in Europe right?  We share borders with these fuckers.  If they manage to keep pushing forward, it's only some time before they turn their designs on places like North Africa and Spain.

I don't like it one bit.  I think it is a dangerous precedent. It's not an issue of Christian vs. Muslim, or Jew vs. Muslim.  It's an issue of militant regimes with imperial mentalities looking to expand.  That mentality is buried behind organized religion, but it's the same shitty and domineering mentality that has echoed through the annals of history, borne upon the whims of every ambitious despot and tinpot dictator.

If these guys do gain ground (and they could with collapsing public expenditure cutting military spending in places like Europe), the Europeans might need to actually pick a side. They might be the "fresh-faced inmate" in the "prison yard" who needs to join a gang to avoid getting shanked during their recreation time.

Historically we've thrown down with the US.  If the US fails to insure the sovereignty of Western Europe and ISIS manages to break out and threaten the Turkish borders, we might be forced to throw in with Russia.

The article headline is typical Bull Shit.

 

Saddam Hussein's intelligence apparatus deserved to be destroyed and prosecuted. The one involved here excaped. Interesting that ZH maintains that the cruel butchers and tortureers of the Hussein government should ahve been kept in power by the US. Whenever the outcome is evil it is necessary for ZH to run an article maintaining that the Us plotted to have that as a goal. It is impossible for me to accept that anyone in a leadership role in the Hussein government should have continued in power. Many of the posters writing here seem have a strong affection for the totalitarian butchers.

The intelligence service Colonel who created those plans was not the creation of the US.  In fact, he has always been a target of the US for capture and trial.  Headline and conclusions are complete horse crap.

I know that some poster have pointed out Mossad's connection to ISIS. Has ZH penned articles that do so also.  I thought someone posted about Israel giving medical treatment, maybe it was ZH.

Does ZH point at Israel much?

Agree, this is just BS to divert attention away from the air drops to ISIS, bombing "mistakes" that support ISIS, Israel attacking Syrian posts that are in ISIS's way,  and on and on.

True.  Reading between the lines though 'ISIS mastermind Haji Bakr rose to power after he became "bitter and unemployed,"' looks like classic a CIA/Mossad cover story made for a guy who they then recruited and trained for his next assignment.

The first day L. Paul Bremer set foot in Iraq as head of the Coalition Provisional Authority, 16 May 2003, he ordered the firing of all Iraqi soldiers who were Ba'ath Party members (CPA 1).  The next day, the first IED blew up in Baghdad.  Bremer was the former managing director of Kissinger Associates, a NWO front organization whose goals are inimical the the safety and freedoms America once enjoyed before the Bush neo-Nazis took over after the staged WTC bombings.

'By shattering the well-trained army of Saddam, the US apparently created a group of very intelligent enemies.'

 

As opposed to?  The US should have never gone into Iraq, but given that we did, we should have never let Zero fuck it up even more.

i_call_you_my_base's picture

It was the Bush admin that made that decision.

R19's picture

From higher up with Bushes as Presidents, but our presence there has certainly been weak after.

i_call_you_my_base's picture

After the invasion, the US made a rule that former Saddam soldiers could not be in the Iraqi army. This encouraged them to join the opposition or other groups. That's the point being made in the quote you cite.

Incidentally, the same rules were imposed for political and administrative positions in the new Iraqi government. And it all but assured a "loss" in that country, although that depends on what you think the objective was / is.

I'm not defending Obama, that's just what happened. I'm not sure Obama could have done better or worse, the die was already cast.

It was a terrible mistake, but the best thing to do with a mistake is not to make it worse.

So please... dear SYCHOPHANT/APOLOGIST... explain to me how it was made better by Obama... Or ~ FFS will be made better By Hillary...

Not when you consider that Zero is related to George W. Bush.

They are actually cousins specifically 10th cousins once removed. And for added fun Zero is also related to Dick Cheney. So the current President is related to previous President and Vice President. What are the odds of that happening?

To understand what once removed means read this.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cousin

Also of importance is the fact the royalty structure allows for up to 10 degrees of cousin seperation for the ruling class and up to twice removed.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanley_Armour_Dunham

...Stanley Armour Dunham’s distant cousins include six U.S. presidents: James Madison, Harry Truman, Lyndon Johnson, Jimmy Carter, George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush.[21] Through a common ancestor, Mareen Duvall, a wealthy Huguenot merchant who emigrated to Maryland in the 1650s, Stanley Dunham is related to former Vice-President Dick Cheney (an eighth cousin once removed).[6] Through another common ancestor, Hans Gutknecht, a Swiss German from Bischwiller, Alsace whose three sons resettled in Germantown, Pennsylvania as well as the Kentucky frontier in the mid-18th century, Stanley Dunham is President Harry S. Truman's fourth cousin, twice removed....

Both Bush and Obama are descendents of King Edward I of England also.

http://pdf.amazingdiscoveries.org/References/RtR/Lec4/Lec4-List_of_US_Pr...

Almost all the Presidents are inter related in some form and through those inter relations makes them descendents of English Kings. Just from that genealogy list you got 21 of 44 Presidents traced back to English Kings. That is almost 50% right there. 11 of those 20 are descendents of King Edward I of England. What are the odds of that? Very rarely do outsiders get into the White House and when they do they usually assassinate them, Eisenhower is the lone exception of last century and possibly Clinton (assuming he really isn't a Rockefeller bastard) also but not before having one of their own installed as a Vice President.

Dewey Cheatum Howe's picture

Just so people understand the ways descendants are defined.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Descendant

A Descendant or descendent primarily refers to:

Lineal descendant, a consanguinous (i.e. biological) relative directly related to a person.

Collateral descendant, a relative descended from a brother or sister of an ancestor.

Not only that all 21 regardless of which monarch they are descendent from are all direct descendents of King Alfred the Great of Wessex who ruled from 871 to 899. That is a long fucking line of rulership, largely unbroken when you consider outside the US and genealogy of those rulers.

Pure Evil's picture

So.........what you're really trying to say is that they're really all a bunch of inbred hillbillies.

Dewey Cheatum Howe's picture

What is the difference between an overt and covert system?

BTW religion means fuck all when it comes to royalty, guy or goy, muslim or mudbaby it is all about the bloodlines and marketability, which implies covert.

Dewey Cheatum Howe's picture

While we are on royalty and bloodlines.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Canon_law_relationship_chart_example.svg

Where does this all source from.

http://www.vatican.va/archive/ENG1104/__P3Y.HTM

They may not be Roman Catholics but who do you think has and still to this day all these legal records of marriages going back to at least 1000 AD for all the nobility of Europe including Kings and they most likely set the rules the ruling class follows for inclusion into the club via canon law.

You want to find out just how controlled the ruling positions of power in the Western World are (not just the US Presidency), you want to see those records to put together the relationship maps.....

Boy, they really are selling the narrative that ISIS was an "unintended" consequence of the US foreign policies. I just don't buy that ISIS was an "accident". First it was sold as a spontaneous formation, now an accident of circumstances. Previous and current data point to an organization formed and maintained by the CIA and Mossad, serving the US-Israeli Syria invasion plan and as a bonus ridding europe of some of the nutjobs who join up. How very convenient that the so-called chief architect of ISIS who drew up the organizational charts for our perusal is now dead.

This neat bullshit package blaming the former Iraqi high command was just what they needed to cook up after some very high profile allegations against Israel and its continuing aid to ISIS came to light since 2013.

Jack Burton's picture

Indeed. Look into the US/Israeli war on Syria and Libya. That is where the ISIS and Al-Qaeda connection to US CIA and Mossad is strongest. There is no way these groups are spontanious. And notice they never, ever attack Israel, but only secular Arabs. Or the Sunni-Shia divisions.
