London Bombings: Looking Back At July 7, 2005

From opinion-maker.org By Commodore Tariq Majeed

Large Bus hit by the bombers
London was rocked by a string of suicidal attacks on its transport system during the morning rush hour on 7 July 2005. Three bombs exploded within 50 seconds of each other on three London Underground trains at 7:50 am (GMT). A fourth exploded an hour later at 08:47 on a double-decker bus. The casualty toll was 52 dead and nearly 700 injured. It sent a wave of intense scare all over Britain.
The attacks were carried out by four suicide bombers, who were named as Mohammad Sidique Khan, Shehzad TanweerHasib Hussain and Germaine Lindsay; the first three were of British Pakistani and the last of British Jamaican descent, but apparently also a Muslim. Reportedly, they used home-made organic peroxide-based devices, packed into rucksacks, which they detonated themselves.
British security experts said the blasts had the hallmarks of the Al Qaeda network, and that the suicide bombers were motivated by Britain’s involvement in the Iraq War. It didn’t need much thinking to see that this was a concocted line for propaganda purposes. The damage they did to Britain was little, compared to that done to the nearly two million strong Muslim citizens, especially those of Pakistani origin, which was colossal.
The military precision and planning with which the bombings were conducted closely resembled that of the 9/11 strikes. Indeed, like the 9/11 strikes, the London bombings were designed to produce political and sociological effects of far-reaching consequences. Again, like 9/11, the moment of their execution and the targets to be hit had been specially chosen for creating powerful emotional effects on the masses and strong immediate political reaction by the government.
The moment chosen was synchronized with two special events, which by coincidence, were occurring just two days apart. On 5 July, London had erupted with joy after it was named the host of the 2012 Olympic Games by the International Olympic Committee. The Londoners were still enjoying the afterglow of winning the bid in stiff competition with Madrid, Moscow and New York, when they were suddenly inflicted with the fatal explosions. Thus, the bombings evoked in them more than the usual feelings of shock, anger and disgust against the alleged perpetrators.
On the morning of 7 July just as the news of the attacks exploded in the media, the presidents/prime ministers of G-8, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia and the United States, were gathering in a hotel in Gleneagles in Scotland to start their three-day summit. They were thus close enough to ‘feel’ the shock and the revulsion the horrible act produced in the British public, and their reactions were sharp and vehement—apparently against Al Qaeda and its ideology, but basically against Muslims and Islam. A part of the story on their immediate reaction published the next day was as follows.
The Group of Eight most industrialized nations declared at their summit in Scotland that the bombings were attacks on the civilized world and said they would stand together to defeat militants.
US President George Bush vowed in a separate statement to reporters in Gleneagles that the war on terrorism would continue until ‘an ideology of hate’ had been overcome. ‘They have such evil in their hearts that they will take the lives of innocent folks. The war on terrorism is on,” Bush said.
The real masterminds behind the bombings must have felt satisfied that the G-8, more so George Bush, had reacted exactly as expected and had spoken the language that indirectly imputed blame to Muslims and their ideology.
There was apparently a “local mastermind”, whose story, in fact, implies British security establishment’s connection to the terror operation. Haroon Rashid Aswat, a British citizen of Indian origin, is alleged to have ties to Al Qaeda. In the first two weeks following the 7 July bombings, British Police sources told newspapers that Aswat made some 20 mobile phone calls to two of the suspected bombers, Mohammed Sidique Khan and Shehzad Tanweer, one just hours before the blasts.
Aswat is reported to have first come to the attention of American counter-terrorism officials in 2002, because they believed he helped set up a terrorist training camp in Oregon, USA, in 1999. He disappeared for a few years, and then surfaced in 2005 in South Africa.    He slipped back in to Britain in late June 2005. He managed to leave Britain, through London’s Heathrow airport on July 7, hours before the bombers struck on that day.
He was, however, arrested in Zambia, on 20 July and was deported to Britain on 7 August 2005. In Britain, Aswat was held in detention on a U.S. arrest warrant. American officials sought to try him for his alleged role in setting up the Oregon training camp in 1999.
On 29 July 2005, on Fox News Channel’s Day Side program, Terrorism expert and a former US prosecutor John Loftus revealed “that Haroon Rashid Aswat, the suspect wanted by British Police for ‘masterminding’ the July 7th London bombings is in fact an asset of MI6, the British Secret Service.” John Loftus said, “Aswat has been under the protection of MI6 for many years.”  Loftus asserted that “Aswat was a double agent, backed by Britain’s MI6.”
Is it a surprise that the ‘local mastermind’ of the London bombings was an agent of MI6 (and of CIA, as both agencies work together on terrorism)! Not in the least. Clandestine use of agents, pawns and patsies is a standard methodology for execution of aggressive strategic policies through planned acts of subversion and terrorism. Indeed, some British analysts have suggested on the basis of strong circumstantial evidence that the 7/7 operation was state sponsored. Again, this is not surprising, because more and more concrete evidence is coming out in America that 9/11, said to be ‘the mother of all terrorism’, was carried out from within the US state apparatus.
The terror operation in London was designed to achieve its primary aims: to discredit the influential and industrious community of British Muslims, upset their good image and standing in society, make them suspect in the eyes of British police and to subject them to extraordinary security checks and restrictions.
The Muslims were successfully competing on equal footing with the other ethnic/religious communities in Britain, such as, the Jews, Hindus, Sikhs and West Indians, in business, industry, education, governmental jobs and other professions. The 7/7 attacks hurt the Muslim community in Britain as badly as the 9/11 attacks had hurt it in America. They became targets of malignant propaganda and repressive administrative measures in the name of security.
However, the British Muslims, especially of Pakistani descent, are by and large a dynamic and resilient community. Among them are scholars, journalists, lawyers, medical specialists, technologists, and politicians as well. They are responding to the situation with tolerance, fortitude and mature behaviour as responsible citizens of the state. The organized bodies amongst them have forged cooperation with British think tanks which are exposing the synthetic aspects of such terror events.

More7/7, Terror and Torture: Protecting the Deep State
By Nafeez Ahmed
It is the five-year anniversary of the 7th July 2005 London tube bombings, yet the new government's latest missives are designed to quash an independent inquiry into those attacks, while thwarting a chance that official complicity in torture will see the light of day in the courts. The deep state is moving, fast, to protect itself through damage-control.

GORDON DUFF: DID THE MILITARY STOP CHENEY FROM DESTROYING THE WORLD?

DOES WHITE HOUSE “APOCALYPSE CULT” STEAL NUKES IN ARMAGEDDON PLOY?

By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor
“Remember the one about the B-52 bomber that, according to legend, had six nuclear weapons loaded onto it by accident, which, of course, could not have happened—by accident—for a dozen different reasons, or more.”
In 2007, a bizarre event occurred. Six nuclear weapons showed up on a B-52 out of nowhere. The public was told they were mistakenly loaded onto the bomber and send flying around the United States. After a 6 week investigation, 70 airmen were punished for the “mistake” but the story hardly ends there. Key personnel at Minot Air Force Base, origin of the “loading mistake” began to have accidents. Loaders and pilots from Minot became some of theunluckiest people on earth. Coincidences pile up as the death toll rises. For every news story available for review, two have disappeared, almost as mysteriously as the deaths they reported. Members of our Air Force keep track of things, from one of their blogs:
“Airman 1st Class Todd Blue was assigned to the unit that provides security for that bomber wing at Minot Air Force base. He died while on leave in Virginia. No further details have been released.
Authorities are investigating the death of a Minot Air Force Base airman who died while on leave in Virginia. Base officials say 20-year-old Airman 1st Class Todd Blue died Monday while visiting family members in Wytheville, Virginia. Blue enlisted in the Air Force in March of last year and joined the 5th Security Forces at Minot Air Force Base the following August. Information on how Blue died has not been released.
Caddo Parish sheriff’s deputies worked a wreck this morning in which two people from Barksdale Air Force Base were killed. The accident, in the 5100 block of Shreveport-Blanchard Highway at 11:30 a.m., claimed the lives of a married couple. Their names have not been released, but the man was 29 and the woman was 32, according to a release from Caddo Parish sheriff’s spokeswoman Cindy Chadwick. The two were riding a 2007 Harley-Davidson motorcycle, with the husband driving and the wife the passenger, Chadwick said.
The woman passenger on the motorcycle died at the scene, while the husband was taken to LSU Hospital in Shreveport, where he died, the release said.
Minot, N.D. (AP) Authorities have identified a Minot Air Force Base man killed in a crash on the outskirts of Minot. Base officials say 20-year-old Adam Barrs was a passenger in a vehicle that failed to negotiate a curve, hit an approach, hit a tree and started on fire late Tuesday night. Barrs was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver is identified as 20-year-old Airman Stephen Garrett.
Bomber Pilot Killed in CrashA Minot Air Force Base bomber pilot was killed in a motorcycle crash in Tennessee, the base says. 1st Lt. Weston Kissel, 28, was a B-52 pilot assigned to the 23rd Bomb Wing at the Minot base, said Lt. Col. Gerald Hounchell, the 23rd Bomb Squadron commander. Kissel died Tuesday in the crash, while on leave, the base said. Kissel, a native of Tennessee, graduated from the Air Force Academy in 2004, and arrived at the Minot base in July last year, the base said.
Body of Missing Air Force Captain Found. The body of a missing Air Force captain from Florida has been found near Badger Peak in northeast Skamania County, Wash., Portland police said Sunday.
Acting on a tip from Portland police, Skamania County authorities found Capt. John Frueh’s rental car about noon on Saturday. They quickly began a search and rescue mission and, with the help of search dogs, found Frueh’s body near the vehicle about 5 p.m., the Skamania County Sheriff’s Office said.
U.S. Air Force General, Thomas L. Tinsley, Dead from Gunshot Wound to ChestThe officer who commands an air force wing in Alaska has died of a gunshot wound that likely was self-inflicted, authorities said Monday. Brig. Gen. Thomas L. Tinsley suffered a gunshot wound to his chest late Sunday night and was pronounced dead within a half hour, said Col. Richard Walberg, who assumed command at Elmendorf Air Force Base after Tinsley’s death. The weapon was likely a handgun, Walberg said. Medical responders who rushed to Tinsley’s home on base were unable to save him. Tinsley’s wife and college-age daughter were home at the time. Tinsley was named base commander in May 2007. He had served as an F-15 instructor pilot, F-15C test pilot, wing weapons officer, exchange officer and instructor with the Royal Australian Air Force. His previous 22-month assignment was executive officer to the Air Force chief of staff, Gen. T. Michael “Buzz” Mosely, who resigned in June under pressure in an agency shake-up.
Mosely, the Air Force military chief, and Air Force Secretary Michael W. Wynne, the agency’s civilian head, were held accountable for failing to fully correct an erosion of nuclear-related performance standards. One concern was a cross-country flight in August of a B-52 carrying armed nuclear weapons. Walberg said Tinsley was not under investigation or undue stress. “As far as stress, sir, this job, by nature of being an Air Force officer in a nation at war, is stressful,” he said. “Undue stress, no.”
Captain Jonathan Bayless: Another Minot Air Force Base Death. The 91st Missile Wing is a U.S. Air Force strategic nuclear missile unit. They deal with the Minuteman III ICBMs. The body of a missile combat crew commander from the Minot Air Force was found by police and the cause of his death is under investigation, the Air Force says. A statement issued by the base Sunday said the body of Capt. Jonathan Bayless, 28, was found Friday night. Police did not give details but said it was in an area north of the city soccer complex and they are awaiting autopsy results. Col. Christopher Ayres, the base’s 91st Missile Wing commander, said Bayless was a training chief with the 91st Operations Support Squadron. He had been at the Minot Air Force Base since March 2005.”
By 2007, there was tremendous fear in the Bush Administration that the lid couldn’t be kept on 9/11, people were coming forward and Commission members were screaming for a Grand Jury.
Look back at 2007. With the Bush administration in tatters, an unprecedented economic disaster hitting the United States and the failures in Afghanistan finally coming to light, a core of Christian Zionists, Donald Rumsfeld, Richard Cheney, George W. Bush, Karl Rove, Don Ashcroft, Alberto Gonzales, five supreme court justices and select members of the command structure of the US military decided to use the waning moments of their defacto control of the nuclear forces at their disposal to begin the nuclear war they knew would destroy all life on earth, bringing about the biblical prophesy, the rapture, they had seized power to bring about.
Panic had set in, 9/11, two illegal wars, cutting deals to keep Afghan heroin flowing around the world, deregulating Wall Street bringing about over a trillion dollars in “bankster” fraud, rendition, torture, wiretapping, even with Israel controlling the American press, the cabal felt the walls closing in on them. They felt that their last chance to spend eternity with Jesus while the earth turned into a burned cinder was slipping from their grasp. Hagee had assured them all that they were on G-d’s list for rapture but only if they could get control of the nuclear weapons G-d intended to be used in his name, Hagee’s continual theme.
“When addressing audiences receptive to Scriptural prophecy, however, Hagee welcomes the coming confrontation. He argues that a strike against Iran will cause Arab nations to unite under Russia’s leadership, as outlined in chapters 38 and 39 of the Book of Ezekiel, leading to an “inferno [that] will explode across the Middle East, plunging the world toward Armageddon.”
During his appearance on Hinn’s program at the end of last March, for example, the host enthused, “We are living in the last days. These are the most exciting days in church history,” but then went on to add, “We are facing now [the] most dangerous moment for America.” At one point, Hinn clapped his hands in delight and shouted, “Yes! Glory!” and then urged his viewers to donate money faster because he is running out of time to preach the gospel.”
With the flurry of threats, the Lieberman bill to shut off the Internet, the TSA filtering all but corporate press sites and Obama’s discussions of making “conspiracy theory,” read “investigative journalism” a crime, the leopard is finally showing its spots.
With Alan Hart of the BBC and Dr. Alan Sabrosky formerly of the Army War College openly stating that it is common knowledge among informed circles that 9/11 was an Israeli/Neo-con phony “Pearl Harbor” based on recommendations from Paul Wolfowitz and Richard Pearle, a planned act of sabotage as the only way of fulfilling an extremist agenda, shutting down open debate has become the highest national priority.
When the core of power in America, Executive, Legislative, Judicial and Military, belong to a religious sect whose beliefs are well beyond any “tinfoil hat” alien abduction cult, stifling “conspiracy theory” is vital. Look at who is on the Supreme Court? What planet to they represent a cross section of, not earth certainly?
You don’t have to be a subscriber of www.bradblog.com to pick up on the fact that CIA contractors run the electronic voting machines in the US or that hundreds of billions of dollars have disappeared in Iraq and Afghanistan and nobody has said a word about it. How do we explain that Afghanistan went from no opium production under the Taliban to 25% increases in production every year under a NATO eradication program that spent over $2 billion? Who needs conspiracy when reality goes so much further.
We asked sources with a good knowledge of Air Force procedures how a renegade gang could steal 6 nuclear weapons and almost end all life on earth. Few Americans know of the takeover of key areas of our defense by religious extremists groups under the control of John Hagee, advocate of using America’s military to force an immediate nuclear apocalypse based on fringe interpretations of biblical prophesy.
Hagee followers in the military have no problem stealing nuclear weapons, loading them for the bombing run on Iran that the Reverend Hagee, leader of Israel’s Christian lobby in the US, and top advisor to Bush, Cheney, Lieberman and McCain, has demanded daily with his every breath. The “unofficial” Air Force view as expressed to me yesterday:
“The US nuke program has been a mess for the past few years. When the jet flew from Minot to Barksdale with real nukes on board without them knowing about it is not supposed to happen. I know a friend that has been brought in to clean house and he is brilliant and street smart…his daddy is a former XXXXX
When Gates fired the former USAF Chief of Staff, AFRC/CC and Sec. of the Air Force is a good hint that things were not right. The current Secretary of the Air Force is OK, but the current Chief of Staff called the “Baboon” should indicate that things within the Air Force are still not like they should be.
I have never seen so many incidents in the Air Force as I have in recent years. A lot of the violators were Zoomies/Air Force Academy grads. (John Hagee followers…)
In the old days you knew where every nuke was known to man. If you had nukes on your jet you had to go through a special entry point and all of your ID and orders were checked and double checked. Just to carry nukes you had to have all of your brain cells moving in the same direction. If you were a nuclear certified drop crew (Strategic Air Command) you had to be sharp, but most of the pilot grads opted to fly fighters and air transports vs. nuclear alert (bottom of the pilot class usually went to bombers).
Minot, Offutt, Barksdale, Fairchild, Lakenheath, Guam, Diego, etc. have most of the Warsaw Pact Heating and Air Conditioning Equipment (advanced radiation detection gear). It would be tough to carry a big nuke anywhere. They have so many radiation detectors to sniff things out like this I would say highly unlikely unless it was a small suit case nuke or some high grade weapons material used to make a nuke. Again, I am or was a pilot and at one time could have done some major damage if the go code were sent….
The Air Force is keeping a lot of the weak XXXXX (officers) and also getting rid of many of the Chief’s who had a lot of power to raise his hand and say time out.”
When accidents start to happen, accidents not unlike the Pat Tillman “friendly fire” accident, four carefully placed shots to the forehead, we see evidence that the Hagee fervor has gained a following in our Special Operations Command as well.
Alan Hart, BBC Mid-East (audio link) correspondent for decades, confidant of Golda Meir and Yasser Arafat reported that one of the six nukes from Minot had also mysteriously disappeared. Confidential reports from highly placed sources claim that Vice President Cheney had personally ordered these weapons deployed for a nuclear attack on Iran, coordinated with Israel.
Hart, one of the top “mainstream” correspondents and respected defense expert with access to some of the best security sources in the world also confirmed that at least six of the alleged 9/11 hijackers have been positively identified as alive and well. Additional confirmations were received on this controversial assertion, adding credence to the claims that pilots unable to land a Cessna couldn’t weave an airliner at 600 knots through lower Manhattan without a navigation device similar to those used on Tomahawk missiles.
With so much coming back to 9/11 and the endless theories, the half-baked cover up and the dozens of “truth” groups, now targets of FBI and Homeland Security infiltration at presidential order, those who stayed silent, within the defense establishment, do occasionally speak out:
“There is a pilot named Field McConnell who was an academy grad who came up with the same idea many years ago and they went after him ASAP. I think that NWA fired him and that he now works for an airline in India (King Fisher). Field had engineering reports, etc., but they made him out to look nuts. He believes that Boeing has some type of chip installed in the autopilot as well that can be overridden and flown by big brother. (Ed: The controllers of the “robot” 9/11 flights are reputed to be the Mossad agents, the “dancing Israeli’s” who were arrested by the FBI on 9/11″)
I know how to over ride this if that happened….. He had diagram of the charges placed in the towers as well that would coincide with the jets hitting the towers assisting the collapse of the towers easier. You did know that there were many more planed strikes that day didn’t you?
It was going to be far worse. The FAA had the jets land and the rest of the terrorist just walked off the jets and out of the terminals. They were going to hit Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, LAX, Seattle, etc. There was a more extensive list that was floating around years ago that I think to be very accurate. The 9-11 Commission was a joke, especially Lee Hamilton from Indiana barely knew what state he was from on a good day.”
When information comes in from the press, corporate, fringe, investigative, or political, there is always an agenda behind it. When members of our military respond with rage at mysterious deaths, outlandish breaks with procedure and outright hijacking of our strategic capabilities by dangerous fanatics, it is quite something else. Did our military, what is left of it, step in to defend the world from terrorist fanatics who had seized control of America’s government and wanted to take the planet down with them?
Did the Bush administration believe they were facing war crimes prosecution as so many had predicted, and believed pulling down the world around them was justified according to their the endless missives from their spiritual guru, John Hagee?
Seldom have so many facts failed to yield any conclusion. Those who stopped the Cheney-Hagee ploy, their attempt to sacrifice America and even the world for Israel, are heroes we will never know but always owe our lives to.
And so it goes…

Afghan Sunset: A Searing Survey of Imperial Failure

By Chris Floyd
July 6, 2010


William Dalrymple is one of the knowledgeable and experienced observers of Central Asia and India in the West. His insights are always valuable, and usually prescient, especially on the greatly variegated complexities -- social, economic, cultural, political, historical -- of the volatile region, where the American imperial impulse is now coming to grief in arrogance and ignorance ... as so many others have done before it.


In a New Statesman article rich with historical detail and direct reportage from the frontlines of "Af-Pak" front of the bipartisan Terror War, Dalrymple brings fresh confirmation of what everyone but the moronic masters of war along the Potomac knows: the war in Afghanistan is lost, and all the vaunted "surges" of the drone-firing Peace Laureate and his various COIN-operated commanders are only prolonging the pointless agony -- and building up a tsunami of horrific blowback.


Here are some extensive excerpts -- but they are only a few highlights. The whole piece well repays a full reading.


In1843, shortly after his return from Afghanistan, an army chaplain, Reverend G R Gleig, wrote a memoir about the First Anglo-Afghan War, of which he was one of the very few survivors. It was, he wrote, "a war begun for no wise purpose, carried on with a strange mixture of rashness and timidity, brought to a close after suffering and disaster, without much glory attached either to the government which directed, or the great body of troops which waged it. Not one benefit, political or military, has Britain acquired with this war. Our eventual evacuation of the country resembled the retreat of an army defeated."




As Dalrymple notes, the 1842 British "regime change" intervention in Afghanistan was:


arguably the greatest military humiliation ever suffered by the west in the Middle East: an entire army of what was then the most powerful military nation in the world utterly routed and destroyed by poorly equipped tribesmen, at the cost of £15m (well over £1bn in modern currency) and more than 40,000 lives. But nearly ten years on from Nato's invasion of Afghanistan, there are increasing signs that Britain's fourth war in the country could end with as few political gains as the first three and, like them, terminate in an embarrassing withdrawal after a humiliating defeat, with Afghanistan yet again left in tribal chaos and quite possibly ruled by the same government that the war was launched to overthrow....


Embarrassing withdrawal after humiliating defeat is almost certainly the fate awaiting this latest Anglo-American imperial folly. The facts on the ground are mounting up, Ossa-like:


The Taliban have now advanced out of their borderland safe havens to the very gates of Kabul and are surrounding the capital, much as the US-backed mujahedin once did to the Soviet-installed regime in the late 1980s. Like a rerun of an old movie, all journeys by non-Afghans out of the capital are once again confined largely to tanks, military convoys and helicopters. The Taliban already control more than 70 per cent of the country, where they collect taxes, enforce the sharia and dispense their usual rough justice. Every month, their sphere of influence increases. According to a recent Pentagon report, Karzai's government has control of only 29 out of 121 key strategic districts. ... Already, despite the presence of huge numbers of foreign troops, it is now impossible - or at least extremely foolhardy - for any westerner to walk around the capital, Kabul, without armed guards; it is even more inadvisable to head out of town in any direction except north: the strongly anti-Taliban Panjshir Valley, along with the towns of Mazar-e-Sharif and Herat, are the only safe havens left for westerners in the entire country. In all other directions, travel is possible only in an armed convoy.


Dalrymple also writes chillingly of


... the blowback that is today destabilising Pakistan and the tribal territories of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata). Here the Pakistani Taliban are once more on the march, rebuilding their presence in Swat, and are now surrounding Peshawar, which is almost daily being rocked by bombs, while outlying groups of Taliban are again spreading their influence into the valleys leading towards Islamabad. ...


The Fata, it is true, have never been fully under the control of any Pakistani government, and have always been unruly, but the region has been radicalised as never before by the rain of shells and cluster bombs that have caused huge civilian casualties and daily add a stream of angry foot soldiers to the insurgency. Elsewhere in Pakistan, anti-western religious and political extremism continues to flourish, as ever larger numbers of ordinary Pakistanis are driven to fight by corruption, predatory politics and the abuse of power by Pakistan's feudal elite, as well as the military aggression of the drones. Indeed, the ripples of instability lapping out from Afghanistan and Pakistan have reached even New York. When CIA interrogators asked Faisal Shahzad why he tried to let off a car bomb last month in Times Square, he told them of his desire to avenge those "innocent people being hit by drones from above".


Dalrymple gets to the heart of the ignorance and arrogance that sustains the ever-more brutal and brutalizing conflict:


The reality of our present Afghan entanglement is that we took sides in a complex civil war, which has been running since the 1970s, siding with the north against the south, town against country, secularism against Islam, and the Tajiks against the Pashtuns. We have installed a government, and trained up an army, both of which in many ways have discriminated against the Pashtun majority, and whose top-down, highly centralised constitution allows for remarkably little federalism or regional representation. However much western liberals may dislike the Taliban - and they have very good reason for doing so - the truth remains that they are in many ways the authentic voice of rural Pashtun conservatism, whose views and wishes are ignored by the government in Kabul and who are still largely excluded from power. It is hardly surprising that the Pashtuns are determined to resist the regime and that the insurgency is widely supported, especially in the Pashtun heartlands of the south and east.


These observations are underlined by a harrowing trip Dalrymple takes trying to retrace the steps of that British retreat in 1842. For security, he travels with the forces of "a regional tribal leader who was also a minister in Karzai's government. He is a mountain of a man named Anwar Khan Jegdalek, a former village wrestling champion who made his name as a Hezb-e-Islami mujahedin commander in the jihad against the Soviets in the 1980s."




During lunch, as my hosts casually pointed out the various places in the village where the British had been massacred in 1842, I asked them if they saw any parallels between that war and the present situation. "It is exactly the same," said Anwar Khan Jegdalek. "Both times the foreigners have come for their own interests, not for ours. They say, 'We are your friends, we want democracy, we want to help.' But they are lying."


..."Afghanistan is like the crossroads for every nation that comes to power," [said] Jegdalek. "But we do not have the strength to control our own destiny - our fate is always determined by our neighbours. Next, it will be China. This is the last days of the Americans."...




The trip also points out one of the main factors inflicting a long and agonizing defeat on the Western coalition: the inherent, inescapable corruption and murder that are the inevitable products of any enforced military occupation:


As Predator drones took off and landed incessantly at the nearby airfield, the elders related how the previous year government troops had turned up to destroy the opium harvest. The troops promised the villagers full compensation, and were allowed to burn the crops; but the money never turned up. Before the planting season, the villagers again went to Jalalabad and asked the government if they could be provided with assistance to grow other crops. Promises were made; again nothing was delivered. They planted poppy, informing the local authorities that if they again tried to burn the crop, the village would have no option but to resist. When the troops turned up, about the same time as we were arriving at nearby Jegdalek, the villagers were waiting for them, and had called in the local Taliban to assist.


...One of the tribal elders came over and we chatted for a while over a glass of green tea. "Last month," he said, "some American officers called us to a hotel in Jalalabad for a meeting. One of them asked me, 'Why do you hate us?' I replied, 'Because you blow down our doors, enter our houses, pull our women by the hair and kick our children. We cannot accept this. We will fight back, and we will break your teeth, and when your teeth are broken you will leave, just as the British left before you. It is just a matter of time.'"


What did he say to that? "He turned to his friend and said, 'If the old men are like this, what will the younger ones be like?' In truth, all the Americans here know that their game is over. It is just their politicians who deny this." ...




The catalogue of brutal stupidities and rampant corruption goes on:


Now as then [in 1842], the problem is not hatred of the west, so much as a dislike of foreign troops swaggering around and making themselves odious to the very people they are meant to be helping. On the return journey, as we crawled back up the passes towards Kabul, we got stuck behind a US military convoy of eight Humvees and two armoured personnel carriers in full camouflage, all travelling at less than 20 miles per hour. Despite the slow speed, the troops refused to let any Afghan drivers overtake them, for fear of suicide bombers, and they fired warning shots at any who attempted to do so. By the time we reached the top of the pass two hours later, there were 300 cars and trucks backed up behind the convoy, each one full of Afghans furious at being ordered around in their own country by a group of foreigners. Every day, small incidents of arrogance and insensitivity such as this make the anger grow. ...


...Now as then, there have been few tangible signs of improvement under the western-backed regime. Despite the US pouring approximately $80bn into Afghanistan, the roads in Kabul are still more rutted than those in the smallest provincial towns of Pakistan. There is little health care; for any severe medical condition, patients still have to fly to India. A quarter of all teachers in Afghanistan are themselves illiterate. In many areas, district governance is almost non-existent: half the governors do not have an office, more than half have no electricity, and most receive only $6 a month in expenses. Civil servants lack the most basic education and skills.


This is largely because $76.5bn of the $80bn committed to the country has been spent on military and security, and most of the remaining $3.5bn on international consultants, some of whom are paid in excess of $1,000 a day, according to an Afghan government report. This, in turn, has had other negative effects. As in 1842, the presence of large numbers of well-paid foreign troops has caused the cost of food and provisions to rise, and living standards to fall. The Afghans feel they are getting poorer, not richer.




It is all most strange -- and terrible. Not only are the Potomac poltroons (and their British camp followers) unable to grasp the myriad complexities of the situation; they can't see the simple truth underlying their predicament either: i.e., you can't invade a country, kill the people, despoil their land, degrade their lives, and then expect them to support your domination. Only a lunatic would believe such a thing. But then, as you may have already noticed, the lunatics have long been in charge of the imperial asylum.

Harvard Professor: 'Exploit Gulf Disaster For Carbon Tax'

Bilderberger Rogoff openly embraces nightmare scenario of hurricanes pushing oil onshore as a way of "exploiting tragedy" to create political momentum behind Obama's dreaded green economy
 
Paul Joseph Watson - Prison Planet.com - Thursday, July 8, 2010
 
Top elitist and Harvard Professor Kenneth Rogoff has shamefully called for the BP oil spill disaster to be exploited in order to create political momentum behind a carbon tax, even going to the lengths of embracing the nightmare scenario of hurricanes pushing the oil onshore as a way to create political momentum behind Obama’s dreaded “green economy”.
 

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Owns Over 7 Million Shares of BP


Vatic Note:  Well, well, if this doesn't seal the "depopulation" agenda for the gulf with the corexit, I don't know what does.  Bill Gates is a huge funder and supporter of Eugenics and depopulation of the planet.  We have written about that on Vatic Project a couple of times and now we find out his foundation owns over 7 million shares of BP stock.    Apparently the poisonous release of the toxins into the Gulf began way before the blowout and we will have something up here today about that, I believe it was over 500,000 gallons of various toxins they dumped before the Laser space weapon blow out done by our military.  Well, you know what he looks like, right???  You know what his wife looks like also, right?  Look at that face and we can understand why he wants to manipulate our DNA.   LOL Don't forget to watch the video below.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Owns Over 7 Million Shares of BP Dr. Roy Schestowitz http://techrights.org/2010/06/07/bp-gates-foundation-numbers
Summary: How Bill Gates and Microsoft help harm the environment while publicly claiming to do the very opposite (for PR purposes)

LAST week we urged people to pressure or petition the Gates Foundation to stop investing in BP. This week we find some figures about the amounts of money the Gates Foundation invests in BP. The following new article gives away the number of shares, which we didn’t quite know at the time.

Imagine my surprise in learning that The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation owns over 7 million shares of BP – equivalent to roughly 0.25% of the common stock.

Just to emphasise an important point, the Gates Foundation invests in some other oil companies. Investments of the Gates Foundation range from anything like alcohol to other drugs. Greenpeace is still under the illusion that Gates actually fights against emissions. They confuse PR with reality and this new post is just embarrassing. Here is the part about Microsoft, which is burning up energy just like Gates with his private jet/s and mansion:

Thus far, Microsoft’s CEO, Steve Ballmer, has failed to articulate the urgent need for government policy to drive a clean energy transformation. By comparison, Microsoft’s competitor, Google, is the top scoring Leaderboard company on advocacy for the clear position taken by its CEO, Eric Schmidt, in support of political action to drive transformative investment in clean energy technologies.

Later on it speaks about Microsoft PR like Microsoft’s Hohm. It's hogwash. And anyway, not a month goes by without the mainstream press pretending that Bill Gates is an economist because he is rich and he invests (for profit) in many ‘charitable’ companies like BP and Walmart. What is this report all about?
Gates Sees European Crisis Among ‘Headwinds’ to U.S. Rebound

Microsoft Corp. co-founder Bill Gates said the European debt crisis and U.S. state government budget cuts are among “headwinds” endangering the economic rebound.

Bill Gates is not qualified in economics. It’s time for the press to stop quoting him on the subject; there are many university professors who have more of a clue, they just don’t have a famous brand name like “Bill Gates”. While we’re at it, and since BP is the main subject of this post, here is an explanation of how the climate debate gets distorted by people who are not climatologists at all (and many of whom receive money from energy companies). 
It’s a video from last week and it explains how the corporate media pretends there are two sides to this debate and there needs to be ‘balance’.  That is the banker owned press lets not forget.

Christopher Bollyn: "Afghanistan - Obama's War for Israel"

From Bollyn.com - July 6, 2010 :

Bruce Riedel is Obama's chief adviser on the war in Afghanistan and the father of the ill-advised "surge", which calls for tens of thousands more U.S. troops to be sent to the failing campaign.  Riedel is employed in a Mossad-funded think tank run by an Israeli friend of Ehud Barak and Shimon Peres.  Is this the "change" Americans really wanted?

Bruce O. Riedel headed the White House Afghan war strategy team that advised President Obama to send 50,000 more U.S. troops in early 2009. With the chaos and bloodshed in Afghanistan increasing every month, Riedel is often interviewed these days- but never identified as a hired gun of the Israeli operative Haim (Chaim) Saban, who happens to be a close friend and partner-in-crime of Ehud Barak, the Israeli defense chief. Recognizing Obama's Zionist war planners is essential to understanding what the war in Afghanistan is really all about.

Bruce Riedel at Israel's Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv.  Riedel, a C.I.A. veteran, works for Haim Saban, a Zionist zealot and Ehud Barak's friend and partner-in-crime.

Haim Saban (right) with Shimon Peres, Ted Koppel, and Bill Clinton at the Saban Forum in Jerusalem 2006.  Saban has given more than $10 million to the Clintons...


...which buys a lot of clout with Obama's secretary of state, a middle class girl from Park Ridge, Illinois.


Saban (left) with Condoleezza Rice, Tony Blair, and Ehud Olmert.  Saban is Mossad's bagman for the biggest war criminals of our time.  A little Mossad money goes a long way when placed in the right hands.  Ehud Olmert, the Israeli Likudnik prime minister, was on a secret mission in New York City on 9-11.  Why has his New York visit been kept secret by the media in the United States? 

Shimon Peres, the President of Israel and father of its illegal nuclear arsenal, has been a close friend of Saban’s for more than twenty years.  As Saban has said, “I’m a one-issue guy, and my issue is Israel.”


Rupert Murdoch, Chairman and CEO of News Corporation and FOX News is a close friend and long-time business partner of Haim Saban.  Murdoch and Saban are seen here at the annual Allen & Co.'s media summit in Sun Valley, Idaho, on July 8, 2009.  Murdoch helped make Saban a billionaire in 2001, when they sold a joint venture, Fox Family Worldwide, to Michael Eisner, of Disney.  In a typical Mossad money arrangement, Saban made one and a half billion dollars, the biggest cash transaction by an individual in the history of Hollywood.  Through the use of a fraudulent tax shelter, Saban paid no ($0) tax on his gain of $1.5 billion.  The Fox Family channel was clearly not worth anywhere near that much money. 
Saban had enlisted Stanley P. Gold, a Zionist director of Disney and founder/chairman of it's Shamrock Israel Growth Fund, to pressure Eisner to acquire the network. Eisner agreed to pay $5.3 billion (including more than two billion dollars of debt) for the company—about a billion dollars more than News Corp. executives had believed it would bring. Gold was also chairman of Koor Industries and Tadiran Communications, two Israeli companies closely tied to Israeli military intelligence.  Why would a Disney director linked to Israeli intelligence want to buy a failing network for a highly inflated price?  This is a commonly used Israeli method to enrich its operatives so they can Influence the public and buy the politicians (like the Clintons) to serve Israel.  The Clintons service to a foreign state (Israel) in exchange for millions of dollars is treasonous.
 
Rupert Murdoch, an Australian Jewish agent of Israel, is very close to Shimon Peres.  Murdoch's FOX News tried to smear Christopher Bollyn as an anti-Semite.  Murdoch's son James, heir apparent of the Murdoch's News Corporation media empire, is married to Eric Hufschmid's sister.  Hufschmid has carried on the attack against Bollyn since 2007.  What a small world!


Kathryn Hufschmid with the Zionist-controlled mayor of Chicago, Richard Daley.  Kathryn works with the Clinton Foundation, which is sponsored by Haim Saban.


The Governor of California, the Austrian bodybuilder-cum-movie star Arnold Schwarzenegger, attended the Saban Forum in Jerusalem in November 2009.  The mystery of what happened to the economy of the Golden State becomes less mysterious when one considers Schwarzenegger's close ties to Zionist criminals.
 
While there are 150 current news articles in which Bruce Riedel is quoted on the war in Afghanistan or the alleged Russian spies of New York, not one of them informs the reader that Riedel works for the Israeli Mossadnik of Hollywood, Haim Saban.  Such glaring omissions are purely intentional.

ISRAEL'S "GREAT GATSBY"

Saban, an Israeli citizen, has given more money, more than $13 million, than any other American to support candidates, political-action committees, and campaign committees since 1999, according to the Federal Election Commission.  In 2006,  the Israeli newspaper Haaretzdubbed him “a kind of Great Gatsby. Our Great Gatsby.”
A recent article, "The Influencer" in the New Yorker, explains Saban's (i.e. Mossad's) strategy in crafting U.S. foreign policy to benefit Ehud Barak and his gang of Zionist terrorists:
Saban's greatest concern, he says, is to protect Israel. At a conference in Israel, Saban described his formula. His “three ways to be influential in American politics,” he said, were: make donations to political parties, establish think tanks, and control media outlets. In 2002, he contributed seven million dollars toward the cost of a new building for the Democratic National Committee—one of the largest known donations ever made to an American political party. That year, he also founded the Saban Center for Middle East Policy at the Brookings Institution…By far his most important relationship is with Bill and Hillary Clinton. In 2002, Saban donated five million dollars to Bill Clinton’s Presidential library, and he has given more than five million dollars to the Clinton Foundation.

Saban has a reputation as a brutal businessman.

A classic Hollywood story retold in Portfolio involves Gene Simmons of Kiss:
In the late ’90s, as co-owner of the Fox Family Channel, Saban was developing shows for children. Simmons, the fire-breathing, blood-spitting frontman of a rock band in costumes and face paint, pitched Saban an idea for a new Saturday-morning cartoon: Kiss meets X-Men, the Marvel comics superhero team. Saban liked the concept well enough to convene a meeting with Avi Arad, then C.E.O. of Marvel’s toy division.

At the appointed time, Saban, Arad, and Simmons sat down. The meeting was going well, and the three began to haggle over numbers. Then Saban turned to Arad and, referring to Simmons, confided in Hebrew, “Now we gut him like a fish.” Without missing a beat, Simmons—who, unbeknownst to Saban, was born Chaim Witz in Haifa, Israel—replied in Hebrew, “You ass hole. I’m one of you.”

Israeli Rock - Gene Simmons (aka Chaim Witz) of Kiss
In January 2001, a law suit was filed in Israel's High Court calling for criminal charges to be brought against Prime Minister Ehud Barak and Los Angeles television producer Chaim Saban. The court papers allege that on March 25, 1999, a month and half before Israel's national elections, Saban hosted a campaign fund-raiser in his Beverly Hills home for then prime minister candidate Barak in violation of Israeli election laws. The 35 to 40 guests who attended the parlor meeting were each asked to donate $10,000 to benefit the Barak campaign.

Haim Saban's friend Ehud Barak is the main suspect of being the mastermind of 9-11 and the explosive demolition of the Twin Towers.

As reported in the Israeli press of 2001:
Saban promised to match each donation to Barak, dollar for dollar. On the evening of the fund-raiser Barak flew into L.A. and spoke before the parlor meeting held in Saban's home and contributions were solicited…

One guest at the fund raising event, businessman Daniel Dilbort, the president of L.A.'s Nu Image productions, admitted to Israel's leading daily Yediot Aharanot, that the participants understood that they were donating to Barak's campaign: "We knew we were donating to Barak's election campaign, but we did not know where the money was going exactly," Dilbort says he wrote a check for $10,000 that evening.

AFGHANISTAN CHAOS

June 2010 was the deadliest month of the nine-year Afghanistan war, with more than 102 NATO troops killed.  Of those killed in June, at least 54 were U.S. soldiers.  The United States has lost 1,066 soldiers in Afghanistan in a military campaign that has gone on longer than World War II, but Obama is sending tens of thousands more young Americans to "surge" in a disastrous war that no one seems to understand.  Exposing the Zionists behind Obama's war policy is essential to understanding why we are engaged in this most ill-advised and criminal of wars.

NORWEGIANS KILLED

Norwegian military officials released the names of the four soldiers killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan on Sunday, June 27. Defense Minister Grete Faremo, her voice cracking with emotion, said she will be among those bringing their bodies home. “We have lost four of our best soldiers,” Faremo said.

Christian Lian, age 31, from Kristiansand in southern Norway

“Norway is a small country. We have no one to lose.” Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg said Monday that the four soldiers “were among the finest we have,” and that their deaths are “a gruesome reminder” of how dangerous their military assignment was.  Norway has 470 troops in Afghanistan.  
But why are Norwegian troops in Afghanistan in the first place?  Why are tens of thousands of young Europeans, Canadians, Australians, and Americans slogging away in the Hindu Kush?  What is the real mission of this international military campaign that has dragged on for nearly 9 years?  What deals have been struck, what promises made to those who have sent their fighting men to the bloody quagmire in Afghanistan?
THINKING CLEARLY ABOUT AFGHANISTAN
To understand why thousands of young Americans and Europeans are fighting and dying in Afghanistan we need to be very clear about the real reasons for this nine-year-old military invasion and occupation. Some straight talk and Socratic dialectic will help us to determine what this war is really about – and what it isn't.
President Obama adopted the seven-year-old war (in 2008) and the Bush administration's reasoning for it, claiming that the United States is occupying Afghanistan because of 9-11. The terrorists behind 9-11, according to the Obama and Bush administrations, were members of the Al Qaida organization headed by Osama Bin Laden. This Islamic terrorist organization was based in Afghanistan under the Taliban regime and presented a threat to the whole world, which is why an international coalition was put together to fight against it. 

The claim that Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaida were behind 9-11, however, has been proven false. While the U.S. government never actually proved that these parties were involved in the terror attacks, the discovery of large amounts of super-thermite in the dust of the World Trade Center has now exposed this claim to be nothing but a complete fabrication. The government and media version of 9-11 contradicts both the scientific evidence and the laws of physics.  It is impossible for both to be valid.  The laws of physics and the evidence are true; the government version is clearly false.  Al Qaida neither produced nor applied the extremely explosive super-thermite that pulverized the Twin Towers on 9-11. The role of Osama Bin Laden was simply that of the scapegoat in a false-flag operation; neither he nor the Taliban had anything to do with the destruction of the Twin Towers.

The Twin Towers were pulverized with a highly energetic form of super-thermite.  Al Qaida and the Taliban of Afghanistan clearly had nothing to do with the murderous demolition of the World Trade Center.
If the people who run the C.I.A. and the U.S. government know about the discovery of super-thermite and explosives in the World Trade Center, why do they continue to wage war in Afghanistan? 

Well, we know Afghanistan's production of opium has increased greatly under the U.S.-led occupation. It was recently reported that use of opiate drugs, including heroin and opium, has doubled in Afghanistan since 2005, with nearly 3 percent of the adult population now addicted. Prior to the U.S. invasion in 2001, the Taliban regime had virtually eradicated the production of opium. Increased production of opium is clearly one of the results of the U.S. occupation of Afghanistan, but is that the only reason?

Afghanistan is also one of the crown jewels of Asia, extremely well endowed with rare minerals and gems, and situated between Russia, Turkmenistan, China, Pakistan, Iran, and the West. To control Afghanistan is to control one of the wealthiest and most important strategic corridors in the world. This is why the Soviet Union tried to occupy Afghanistan in the 1980s and why the U.S.-led coalition has tried to do the same since 2001.  Besides its enormous wealth of rare and strategic minerals, Afghanistan is located between the Israeli-owned gas fields of Turkmenistan and the energy-starved markets of India and China.  If Afghanistan were brought under U.S. and Zionist control, the planned TAPI (Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India) gas pipeline through Kandahar would bring billions of dollars into Mossad's coffers every year.  This is the real reason why Ehud Barak and Haim Saban are pushing for the conquest of Afghanistan.  These people will use every trick in the book to see this pipeline built, but how many people must die for Israeli profits?

Who are the people behind the crafting of the war policy in Afghanistan?
We can easily identify two groups who are pushing the war policy in Afghanistan: the C.I.A. and the Israelis. The C.I.A. is clearly waging its own war in Afghanistan and Pakistan with its use of drone-launched missiles while the Israelis have called for the U.S. invasion of the country from the beginning. Ehud Barak, the current Israeli defense minister, was actually the first person to call for the invasion of Afghanistan, which he did on 9-11, only minutes after the demolition of the World Trade Center, on the BBC.

OBAMA'S WAR FOR ISRAEL

While a great deal has been written recently about the war in Afghanistan following the resignation of General Stanley A. McChrystal, I have yet to see one article that correctly identifies the real impetus behind the war effort. Most Americans believe, as President Obama says, that the war is being waged because the Taliban regime supported the terrorists who carried out 9-11. This is utterly false, as the discovery of super-thermite amply proves. The false-flag terror of 9-11, the war in Afghanistan, and the larger "War on Terror" are all Zionist-constructed frauds that are protected and promoted by the Zionist-controlled White House, Congress, and media.

To understand that the "War on Terror" (with its invasion and occupation of Afghanistan) is a Zionist construct, it is helpful to review the Israeli role in its development and realization:

·PREPARING THE GROUND - The idea of the "War on Terror" and its conceptual framework was first articulated and promoted by Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel's Yonatan Institute of Terrorism in the early 1980s in a series of speeches, seminars, articles, and books. The basic idea is that Israel's survival required that the militaries of the United States and Europe be stationed in the Middle East to defeat and occupy the states that support terrorism – on a long-term basis. Terrorism, or a state that supports terrorism, as defined by the Israeli doctrine, is any act (or state) of resistance against Israeli hegemony and aggression.  The "War on Terror" doctrine was taught to highest-level U.S. leaders, such as George H.W. Bush, who attended the first conference of the Yonatan Institute of Terrorism in 1979. Netanyahu is a former soldier of Israel's elite Sayeret Matkal and served under Ehud Barak, his commander.

·CREATING THE CATALYST – The false-flag terror attacks of 9-11 were Israeli-designed and managed events. Ehud Barak, the chief of secret operations for the Israeli military, came to the United States in early 2001 to supervise the preparation of the crime. He was a partner in an Israeli firm, SCP Partners, which owned metallurgical companies that specialized in manufacturing nano-composites, exactly like the super-thermite that demolished the World Trade Center on 9-11.

·INTERPRETING THE EVENT – Ehud Barak happened to be in London on 9-11, ready and willing to appear on BBC World television just minutes after the demolition of the Twin Towers. Barak was clearly well prepared to interpret the terror attacks for the English-speaking world. Without a single piece of evidence, Barak blamed Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaida and called for the U.S. and the western democracies to invade Afghanistan. The Zionist-controlled media completely supported Barak's interpretation of 9-11 and refused to address the unanswered questions or evidence of Israeli involvement in the attacks.

·CONTROLLING THE INVESTIGATION – Michael Chertoff, an Israeli national and son of a Mossad agent, was Assistant Attorney General in charge of the criminal division of the Department of Justice on 9-11. As the top boss of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which had a complete novice as its director, Chertoff was well positioned to control the investigation by confiscating and destroying crucial evidence, such as more than 99 percent of the steel from the destroyed Twin Towers. While the real evidence was being confiscated, false evidence, such as passports of the alleged hijackers, was "found" and used by Chertoff to create the myth that Al Qaida had hijacked the planes and destroyed the World Trade Center.

·SHAPING THE ZEITGEIST – Chertoff was instrumental in drafting the draconian legislation named the USA PATRIOT Act, which reinforced the idea that the United States was under attack and that our cherished civil liberties would have to be sacrificed in order to wage a global "War on Terror." A department of Homeland Security was established, which Chertoff became the head of - after he completed his critical task overseeing the "non-investigation" of 9-11.

·MANAGING THE WARS – Zionist advisers, the unelected Neo-Cons, pushed for U.S. military invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. Promoted by the controlled media, the Zionist hawks used every trick in the book, including outright lies, to convince the public and policy makers that sending hundreds of thousands of U.S. soldiers into the Middle East on an open-ended mission was the only way to prevent another 9-11 atrocity. Most of these advisers are die-hard Zionist zealots with strong attachments to Israeli military intelligence.

·OBAMA'S WAR FOR ISRAEL – Elected on a promise of "change", the Zionist-controlled Barack Obama conducted a review of the seven-year-old war in Afghanistan. Bruce O. Riedel, a veteran C.I.A. officer, was named to chair the White House review. Riedel, a senior fellow of the Chaim Saban Center for Middle East Policy at the Brookings Institution, is an employee of Chaim Saban, an Israeli "billionaire" operative in Hollywood who is an ardent supporter (and partner in crime) of Ehud Barak. Not surprisingly, Riedel advises Obama to increase the war effort in Afghanistan and send tens of thousands more U.S. troops to try to pacify the U.S.-occupied Central Asian nation.   

With Israeli criminals crafting U.S. war policies in Afghanistan, the prognosis is for more violence and terrorism.
