Con­tin­u­ing dis­cus­sion of the 9/11/2001 attacks, this pro­gram con­tin­ues dis­cus­sion of events in, and around, the event. This broad­cast high­lights maneu­ver­ing of a cyn­i­cal, Machi­avel­lian nature by the Under­ground Reich.

1. This pro­gram begins with dis­cus­sion of Amer­i­can pol­i­cy toward “Islam­o­fas­cism” as being “Inco­her­ent” and, at times, Machi­avel­lian. “Although a major shake­up ensued with­in the U.S. secret ser­vice [intel­li­gence agen­cies], that did not change a thing in terms of the inter­na­tion­al tribu­la­tions of the world’s pri­ma­ry pow­er, which con­tin­u­ous­ly oscil­lates between impro­vi­sa­tion with no thought for tomor­row, and a care­ful­ly-con­struct­ed Machi­avel­lism.” (Dol­lars for Ter­ror: The Unit­ed States and Islam; by Richard Labeviere; Copy­right 2000 [SC]; Algo­ra Pub­lish­ing; ISBN 1–892941-06–6; p. 161.)

2. Exem­pli­fy­ing the exploita­tion of Al Qae­da, the Sep­tem­ber 11 attacks and the Afghan war for eco­nom­ic gain, the broad­cast high­lights the pro­ject­ed pipeline car­ry­ing oil from the Caspi­an Sea, real­ized as a result of the Afghan con­flict. (“A New Oil Game With New Win­ners” by Richard But­ler; New York Times; 1/18/2002; p. A25.) (For more about this project, and the elder George Bush’s invest­ment in Uno­cal, one of the back­ers of the project, see FTRs 328 [4], 334 [5].)

3. A major focal point of Islam­ic fun­da­men­tal­ist activ­i­ty has been the Chi­nese province of Xin­jiang. (Dol­lars for Ter­ror: The Unit­ed States and Islam; by Richard Labeviere; pp. 10–11.) Vital­ly impor­tant because of its eco­nom­ic resources and mil­i­tary strate­gic sig­nif­i­cance, Xin­jiang has expe­ri­enced a wave of Wah­habi ter­ror. (Idem.)

4. The Chi­nese gov­ern­ment alleges that Bin Laden and Al Qae­da have been deeply involved with pro­mot­ing ter­ror­ism among the Uighur pop­u­la­tion of Xin­jiang. (“Bei­jing Says Chi­nese Mus­lims Were Trained as Ter­ror­ists With Mon­ey From bin Laden” by Elis­a­beth Rosen­thal; New York Times; 1/22/2002; p. A11.) It is spec­u­lat­ed that ele­ments of U.S. intel­li­gence asso­ci­at­ed with major cor­po­rate inter­ests may have been involved with exploit­ing Al Qae­da in order to either pro­mote sep­a­ratism of Xin­jiang and sub­se­quent eco­nom­ic exploita­tion, or to oblige the Chi­nese gov­ern­ment to accede to U.S. cor­po­rate pol­i­cy in the region. As dis­cussed, the manip­u­la­tion of Islam­ic fun­da­men­tal­ism has been used to effect a sim­i­lar state of affairs in the for­mer Sovi­et Union. It is believ­able that the Under­ground Reich has uti­lized this “glob­al cor­po­ratism” to “dou­ble” on U.S. intel­li­gence and the Unit­ed States.

5. The recent rev­e­la­tion that Uighur com­bat­ants were involved in a fire­fight with U.S. forces lends cre­dence to the Chi­nese state­ments. (“U.S. Forces Clash With al Qae­da Gun­men” by Ellen Knick­mey­er [AP]; San Fran­cis­co Chron­i­cle; 1/28/2002; p. A9.)

6. Next, the pro­gram high­lights the Islam­ic extrem­ist attack on the Indi­an par­lia­ment and the pos­si­bil­i­ty that the flare-up of Indian/Pakistani ten­sions may, in effect, open up a “South­ern Front” allow­ing the exo­dus of Al Qae­da fight­ers. (“Kash­mir Could Trig­ger al-Qae­da Escape” by Farhan Bokhari; Finan­cial Times; 12/21/2001; p. 2.) The pos­si­bil­i­ty that the Under­ground Reich and the Islam­o­fas­cists is not one to be read­i­ly dis­missed.

7. Inter­est­ing­ly (and per­haps sig­nif­i­cant­ly), the Aus­tri­an bor­der with Slo­va­kia has become a focal point of recon­sol­i­da­tion by Al Qae­da. (“Aus­tri­an Bor­der Offers al Qae­da a New Gate­way to Europe” by Eric Geiger; San Fran­cis­co Chron­i­cle; 1/22/2002; p. A11.)

8. The broad­cast high­lights [6] the role of Iraqi weapons deal­er Abdul Jebara as a con­duit between Euro­pean fas­cists and Sad­dam Hus­sein. (“Con­vict­ed Arms Deal­er Fun­nels Aid from Europe’s Far Right to Iraq” by Eric Geiger; San Fran­cis­co Chron­i­cle; 5/3/2001; pp. B1-B4.) Jebara’s oper­a­tions are cen­tered in the Aus­tri­an province of Carinthia, the domain of Aus­tri­an fas­cist Joerg Haider. (Ibid.; p. B1.) There are strong and long-stand­ing Nazi and fas­cist con­nec­tions to nation­al­ist ele­ments in the Arab and Mus­lim worlds.

9. As the U.S. has tar­get­ed Sad­dam Hus­sein (diplo­mat­i­cal­ly), Haider has vis­it­ed and lent sup­port to the Iraqi dic­ta­tor. (“Amer­i­ca Turns on Haider for ‘Encour­ag­ing Sad­dam’ ” by Rupert Corn­well; Lon­don Inde­pen­dent; 2/14/2002.) [7]

10. The Iraqi press has trum­pet­ed Haider’s vis­it as indi­cat­ing Euro­pean sol­i­dar­i­ty against the “U.S. and Zion­ist con­spir­a­cy.” (“Haider Stays in the Head­lines with ‘Pri­vate’ Vis­it to Sad­dam” by Del­la Meth-Cohn in Vien­na and William Hall in Zurich; Finan­cial Times; 2/14/2002; p. 2.)

11. Inter­est­ing­ly (and per­haps sig­nif­i­cant­ly) Haider is sup­port­ing Iraq against the U.S. while, at the same time, manip­u­lat­ing anti-immi­grant (and anti-Arab) sen­ti­ment in Aus­tria for his own polit­i­cal ben­e­fit. (“Aus­tri­an Right­ist Is Work­ing on His Come­back” by Steven Erlanger; New York Times; 2/7/2002; p. A3.)

12. Anti-immi­grant, anti-Arab and anti-Mus­lim sen­ti­ment is pro­pelling Euro­pean pol­i­tics to the right. (“A Jumpy, Anti-Immi­grant Europe Is Creep­ing Right­ward” by Steven Erlanger; New York Times; 1/30/2002; p. A3.)

13. The tac­ti­cal alliance with, and ideological/racist oppo­si­tion to, Mus­lims and Arabs has his­tor­i­cal antecedents. This same dual­i­ty is reflect­ed in the pol­i­cy and state­ments of Amer­i­can fas­cist groups in the wake of the Sep­tem­ber 11 attacks. (“After the Attacks: Amer­i­can White Nation­al­ism since 11 Sep­tem­ber 2001” by Devin Burghart; Search­light; Jan­u­ary, 2002 [#319]; p. 34.) It is worth not­ing that the Nation­al Alliance (pub­lish­er of the Turn­er Diaries) Ser­pen­t’s Walk is among those groups. and

14. Next, the pro­gram high­lights a very dis­turb­ing death. (“Crash Adds Mys­tery to an Inquiry” [AP]; New York Times; 1/30/2002; 2/14/2002; p. A17.) The fiery death of Kather­ine Smith may obscure con­nec­tions between Sep­tem­ber 11 and an attempt to obtain false iden­ti­fi­ca­tion by Mid­dle East­ern asso­ciates of Ms. Smith.

15. One of the things to pon­der in con­nec­tion with Bush’s pre­pos­ter­ous “Axis of Evil” speech is the pos­si­bil­i­ty that it could lead to the diplo­mat­ic, polit­i­cal and (per­haps) eco­nom­ic iso­la­tion of the Unit­ed States. Iran has respond­ed to Bush’s address by return­ing Al Qae­da and Tal­iban oper­a­tives who have fled Afghanistan to Sau­di Ara­bia, among oth­er places. (“Iran Poised to Send Home Ter­ror­ism Sus­pects” by Guy Din­more; Finan­cial Times; 2/13/2002; p. 6.) The Saud­is have been less than vig­or­ous in pur­su­ing Bin Laden’s oper­a­tives.

16. The Bush speech has led to increased resent­ment against the Unit­ed States in Iran, increased sol­i­dar­i­ty between the Ira­ni­ans and the Iraqis (mor­tal ene­mies in the past) and the pos­si­bil­i­ty that Iraq will attack Israel with mis­siles in the event of a U.S. attack on Sad­dam. (“Who Hijacked Our War” by Chris Matthews; San Fran­cis­co Chron­i­cle; 2/17/2002; p. D6.) In that con­text, one should not dis­miss prog­nos­ti­ca­tion made in AFA 37 [8] to the effect the Under­ground Reich and Ger­many may pre­cip­i­tate a Mid­dle East­ern war with weapons of mass destruc­tion that would anni­hi­late Israel, kill most of the Arabs, neu­tral­ize the util­i­ty of the Mid­dle East­ern oil fields, and make Rus­sia the most impor­tant oil pro­duc­er in the world. In addi­tion, it may result in ter­ror­ist anni­hi­la­tion against the Unit­ed States.

17. Con­sid­er­ing the “Axis of Evil,” it is worth not­ing that the elder George Bush was the prin­ci­pal play­er in arm­ing both Iran and Iraq in the 1980’s. This was accom­plished through Bush’s own pri­vate spy agency, set up as a device to “fight ter­ror­ism.” (The Secret War Against the Jews: How West­ern Espi­onage Betrayed the Jew­ish Peo­ple; John Lof­tus and Mark Aarons; Copy­right 1994 [HC]; St. Mar­t­in’s Press; ISBN 0–312-11057‑X; pp. 407–409.)

18. In addi­tion to arm­ing Iran (one ele­ment of Bush the Younger’s “Axis of Evil”), the elder Bush armed Sad­dam Hus­sein. (Ibid.; p.429.)
