What the Hell Does Dave Emory Mean by "The Earth Island Boogie"?, Part 3: Geopolitical Quicksand

Listen (MP3): This program was recorded in one, 60-minute segment

The latest programs recorded are: FTR #914: Interview (#1) with Gerrard Williams, Co-Author of “Grey Wolf: The Escape of Adolf Hitler” and FTR #915: Interview (#2) with Gerrard Williams, Co-Author of “Grey Wolf: The Escape of Adolf Hitler.” The description for both programs is HERE.

tayyip erdogan and Fetullah GulenAnalyzing the possibility that American use of Muslim Brotherhood Islamists as proxy warriors and armed heralds of corporatist, free-market economic values might backfire on the United States, we look at the development of ISIS, the curious Turkish about-face on the Fetullah Gulen organization and fallout from the so-called “Arab Spring.” Beginning with discussion of a “doomsday” contingency plan concocted by al-Qaeda and Saddam Hussein to back each other up militarily in the event either or both were overthrown by the  U.S., we examine the prominent role of former members of Saddam’s officer corps in administering ISIS. ISIS and al-Qaeda are holding forth in Libya, which is serving as a base for spreading their operations into Africa. Like the bloody Syrian civil war, the overthrow of Khadafy (which set the stage for the Islamist presence in Libya) is an outgrowth of the so-called “Arab Spring”–one of the “conga-line ops” we highlighted in FTR #885. Much of the program highlights the operations of the Fetullah Gulen organization in Turkey. Alleged to be a CIA front organization and Islamic extremist in nature, the Gulen organization was formerly an ally of Tayyip Erdogan. Now, it is among his most bitter opponents. Program Highlights Include: review of Hitler’s view that Islamists were a crucial Third Reich ally; review of a critical meeting in Switzerland at which prominent Euro-fascists and al-Taqwa director Ahmed Huber met; speculation that the Swiss “Euro-fascist” summit may have helped generate the intelligence disinformation that helped lure the Bush administration into the ill-advised Iraq war; “ex” CIA officer Graham Fuller’s ridicule of the allegation that the Gulen organization is a CIA front organization; the close connections between Erdogan’s AKP Party, Germany and the EU.
