FTR #808 Walkin’ the Snake in Ukraine, Part 3 (“How Many Lies Can You Allow Yourself to Believe Before You Belong to the Lie?”)

Polit­i­cal come­di­an Mort Sahl (one of New Orleans DA Jim Gar­rison’s inves­ti­ga­tors into the JFK assas­si­na­tion) asked in his auto­bi­og­ra­phy “Heart­land”; “How many lies can you allow your­self to believe before you belong to the lie?” In the gath­er­ing storm in Ukraine, decades of insti­tu­tion­al lying from the Sec­ond World War, through the Cold War and into the present appears to have gained own­er­ship over con­tem­po­rary Amer­i­ca. Hav­ing tak­en in the intel­li­gence and polit­i­cal resid­ua of the Third Reich and its Cen­tral and East­ern Euro­pean allies, Amer­i­ca res­ur­rect­ed and per­pet­u­at­ed the polit­i­cal and ide­o­log­i­cal ban­ner of fas­cism. Adher­ing to gross­ly and delib­er­ate­ly dis­tort­ed intel­li­gence dur­ing the Cold War, the polit­i­cal land­scape evolv­ing from that dis­tor­tion is gov­ern­ing con­tem­po­rary per­cep­tions and actions. This pro­gram updates the actions of the OUN/B heirs in Ukraine and their polit­i­cal and ide­o­log­i­cal allies else­where in the for­mer War­saw Pact coun­tries. At the core of this analy­sis is the nur­tur­ing of the Hitler-con­ceived Anti-Bol­she­vik Bloc of Nations with­in West­ern intel­li­gence and the GOP, its pro­jec­tion into East­ern Europe and the for­mer U.S.S.R. dur­ing the final stages of the Cold War and and how we are now dom­i­nat­ed by the polit­i­cal Franken­stein’s mon­ster we cre­at­ed in that part of the world.

FTR #911 The Crimean Tatars, Ukraine and The Underground Reich: Update on the Earth Island Boogie

Keyed by the vic­to­ry of a Crimean Tatar singer in the Euro­vi­sion song contest–she sang about their depor­ta­tion by Stal­in in 1944–the Crimean Tatars are in the polit­i­cal spot­light again.

Agi­tat­ing and con­spir­ing along­side OUN/B fas­cist heirs Pravy Sek­tor in Ukraine, the Crimean Tatars have become some­thing of a cause cele­bre in the course of col­lab­o­rat­ing to desta­bi­lize Crimea and Rus­sia. What has been eclipsed by the cur­rent con­tro­ver­sy is the long his­to­ry of Crimean Tatar col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Third Reich, ini­tial­ly, and then West­ern intel­li­gence.

Uti­lized as a wedge against the for­mer Sovi­et Union, the Crimean Tatars were enlist­ed in the anti-Sovi­et Promethean League in the peri­od between the two world wars and sub­se­quent­ly turned to the Third Reich as spon­sors and allies, see­ing the Nazi armies as their tick­et to auton­o­my. Through­out this almost cen­tu­ry-long odyssey, the Crimean Tatars have served along­side the Ukrain­ian fas­cists of the OUN/B and its suc­ces­sor orga­ni­za­tions. ” . . . Berlin began forg­ing plans for win­ning over Sovi­et lin­guis­tic minori­ties (‘Volks­grup­pen’) to col­lab­o­rate with the Nazis in the war against Moscow. The atten­tion of strate­gists in the Ger­man For­eign Min­istry and in the Reich Min­istry for the Occu­pied East­ern Ter­ri­to­ries fell on the approx. 200,000 Crimean Tatars. The idea was encour­aged by the hope that, with the Tatar’s help, offi­cial­ly neu­tral Turkey could also be won over to enter the war. Ankara saw itself as the pro­tec­tive pow­er for Tur­kic-speak­ing minori­ties, includ­ing the Tatar lin­guis­tic group on the Crimean Penin­su­la. . . . The Bat­tle Group D began imme­di­ate­ly to recruit Crimean Tatar vol­un­teers for the war against the Sovi­et Union. In Decem­ber 1941, this bat­tle group had mas­sa­cred more than 13,000 peo­ple — 11,000 Jews and over 800 Roma — in Sim­fer­opol (Crimea). . . .”

Fol­low­ing mil­i­tary defeat in the Sec­ond World War, the Crimean Tatars and their pri­ma­ry spon­sor in the Ostministerium–Gerhard von Mende–continued their work apace under the aus­pices of Frank Wis­ner and Allen Dulles’s CIA and the Gehlen orga­ni­za­tion, both in its CIA incar­na­tion and after it’s incor­po­ra­tion as the BND, the intel­li­gence ser­vice of the Fed­er­al Repub­lic of Ger­many. The Crimean Tatar/Ukrainian fas­cist col­lab­o­ra­tion has con­tin­ued into the post-Maid­an peri­od.

Pro­gram High­lights Include: Review of Crimean Tatar/Pravy Sek­tor blockad­ing of road traf­fic into Crimea; review of Crimean Tatar/Pravy Sek­tor col­lab­o­ra­tion in the sab­o­tage of Crimea’s elec­tric grid; con­tem­po­rary Ger­man polit­i­cal liai­son with dis­si­dent Crimean Tatars; Turkey’s ongo­ing sup­port for the Crimean Tatars, part of Erdo­gan’s “neo-Ottoman”/Pan-Turkic pol­i­cy; von Mende’s use of Third Reich col­lab­o­ra­tor Edi­ge Kir­i­mal dur­ing the Cold War; review of the UNA-UNSO’s col­lab­o­ra­tion with Chechens and oth­er Cau­casian Islamists fol­low­ing the breakup of the Sovi­et Union.

FTR #880 The ISIS File: The Myth of the Moderates

Con­tin­u­ing our analy­sis of an over­lap­ping series of mas­sive covert oper­a­tions in the Earth Island uti­liz­ing Mus­lim Broth­er­hood-based Sun­ni jihadists and inter­sect­ing Pan-Turk­ist ele­ments, we ana­lyze the gen­e­sis of ISIS. Stem­ming from a covert oper­a­tion in which ele­ments of CIA, Sau­di Ara­bia, Turkey and Qatar and the Syr­i­an Mus­lim Broth­er­hood are oper­at­ing in South­ern Turkey to enable jihadists in Syr­ia, ISIS appears to be some­thing of a Franken­stein’s mon­ster. Envi­sioned as a Salafist prin­ci­pal­i­ty in East­ern Syr­ia to desta­bi­lize the Assad regime, the Islam­ic State used AQI (Al-Qae­da in Iraq) infra­struc­ture to spread into Iraq, threat­en­ing the “gains” of the mis­guid­ed U.S. inva­sion of that coun­try. Now, this Islamist Franken­stein’s mon­ster is attack­ing the West, dri­ving the polit­i­cal spec­trum in Europe and the Unit­ed States right­ward. That reac­tion, in turn, is fuel­ing Mus­lim alien­ation to the delight and ben­e­fit of ISIS. Pro­gram High­lights Include: ISIS chief Al-Baghradi’s “for­mer” mem­ber­ship in the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood; the deci­sive role of Chechen fight­ers in ISIS; the alliance of UNA-UNSO fight­ers (Pravy Sek­tor) in Chech­nya and Geor­gia; ISIS’s use of Bit­coin to stash their finan­cial assets; ISIS’s use of an encrypt­ed Berlin-based mes­sag­ing ser­vice for its com­mu­niques; an oblique endorse­ment of ISIS by the chief of Turk­ish intel­li­gence; review of the re-direc­tion of the anti-Sovi­et jihadist effort in Afghanistan to anti-Russ­ian com­bat in Chech­nya; review of Zbig­niew Brzezin­ski’s endorse­ment of using jihadists against Rus­sia in the Cau­ca­sus and Chi­na in cen­tral Asia.

FTR #811 Walkin’ the Snake in Ukraine, Part 4

With anoth­er anniver­sary of the 9/11 attacks hav­ing passed, it is inter­est­ing to con­tem­plate the ongo­ing dam­age from the unlearned lessons con­cern­ing those attacks. Before dis­cussing ongo­ing sup­port for Cau­casian and Chechen jihadist ele­ments by ele­ments of U.S., West­ern and Sau­di intel­li­gence, the pro­gram high­lights the bogus intel­li­gence about a sup­posed “Russ­ian inva­sion” of Ukraine that does not appear to have occurred at all. Much of the sup­posed intel­li­gence on this “inva­sion” comes from satel­lite pho­tos, show­ing what are sup­posed to be Russ­ian armored and artillery ele­ments in Ukraine. These pho­tos are NOT from U.S. recon­nais­sance satel­lites, but come from a pri­vate company–DigitalGlobe. Found­ed by vet­er­ans of Ronald Rea­gan’s “Star Wars” pro­gram (The Strate­gic Defense Ini­tia­tive), the com­pa­ny’s exec­u­tives have CV’s involv­ing work for Bain (Mitt Rom­ney’s firm) and IHS, the Thyssen/Bornemisza group firm that is the epi­cen­ter of the Peak Oil doc­trine. Access­ing archival infor­ma­tion about sup­port for Chechen Islamists by ele­ments of U.S., West­ern and Sau­di intel­li­gence, the pro­gram notes the involve­ment of Ukrain­ian fas­cists from the UNA/UNSO orga­ni­za­tion in Chech­nya and the Cau­ca­sus. The report­ed com­bat exper­tise of ISIS is said by some ana­lysts to have evolved from the par­tic­i­pa­tion in that group of Chechen vet­er­ans, mak­ing our slip­pery slope involve­ment against the group blowback–to an extent–from the West­’s proxy war­riors in the Cau­ca­sus. As was the case in Afghanistan–where the U.S. fought a bloody, inde­ci­sive war against jihadists craft­ed to fight against the U.S.S.R. and sub­se­quent­ly Russia–we once again find Amer­i­can mil­i­tary forces engaged against jihadists being used as proxy war­riors by ele­ments of the transna­tion­al cor­po­rate elite and allied nation­al secu­ri­ty ele­ments. The pro­gram con­cludes with a clos­er look at the his­tor­i­cal back­ground to some recent pro­pa­gan­da in the New York Times’ op-ed page, ascrib­ing Russ­ian respon­si­bil­i­ty to the 1999 assas­si­na­tions of Armen­ian polit­i­cal lead­ers by the Dash­nags, an Armen­ian nation­al­ist group with long­stand­ing his­tor­i­cal links to Ukrain­ian fas­cists and oth­er ele­ments of inter­na­tion­al fas­cism and the Under­ground Reich.

Robert Parry on the “Russian Invasion” of Ukraine

In FTR #808, we exam­ined the high­ly dubi­ous claims of a “Russ­ian inva­sion” of Ukraine. Among the painful­ly lim­it­ed voic­es sup­port­ing our pro­found doubts about the accu­ra­cy of those claims is Robert Par­ry of Con­sor­tium News. It appears that intel­li­gence pro­fes­sion­als of his acquain­tance dis­miss the accu­ra­cy of the dan­ger­ous­ly irre­spon­si­ble claims of Russ­ian inva­sion and have tak­en the trou­ble to com­mu­ni­cate their analy­sis to Angela Merkel.

ISIS Blowback from Ukraine, Caucasian Covert Ops?

We high­light an arti­cle not­ing the mil­i­tary prowess and sophis­ti­ca­tion of ISIS. Crit­i­cal to this analy­sis is the appar­ent role of the Chechens in the tac­ti­cal devel­op­ment of the group. In the con­text of U.S. and West­ern sup­port for the OUN/B milieu in Ukraine, includ­ing the UNA-UNSO fight­ers who fought with the Chechens and else­where in the Cau­ca­sus, we may well be see­ing “blow­back” from our poli­cies vis a vis Ukraine. The Boston Marathon Bomb­ing also appears to be “Chechen blow­back.”
