Who’s “SAAR‑y” Now?

A major play­er in the SAAR net­work of com­pa­nies raid­ed by Oper­a­tion Green Quest agents in 2002 was Mohamed Hadid. The real estate devel­op­er is promi­nent in the Bel Air mar­ket, among oth­ers. Are any of his enter­pris­es vehi­cles for mon­ey laun­der­ing?

The “Sammy the Aryan” Show Hits the Road

After a bad­ly-com­pro­mised “inves­ti­ga­tion,” the polit­i­cal odyssey of George W. Bush asso­ciate Sami al-Ari­an (“Sam­my the Aryan”) has tak­en anoth­er turn. One of the founders of Pales­tin­ian Islam­ic Jihad (pic­tured at right), Al-Ari­an is going to be deport­ed. The inves­ti­ga­tion of al-Ari­an led to the Oper­a­tion Green Quest raids of 3/20/2002. Had that inves­ti­ga­tion been prop­er­ly under­tak­en, it would have exposed pro­found links between the Bush White House, the GOP and polit­i­cal “super lob­by­ist” Grover Norquist. In the event, al-Ari­an’s case was eclipsed and ulti­mate­ly buried.

FTR #830 Machiavelli 2.0: The Paris Attacks and the Muslim Brotherhood

In the wake of the ter­ror­ist inci­dents in Paris, dis­cus­sion has point­ed­ly omit­ted the per­pe­tra­tors’ links to the Mus­lim Brotherhood–the Islam­ic fas­cist orga­ni­za­tion that spawned groups like Al Qae­da and ISIS. Por­trayed in the West as a “mod­er­ate’ orga­ni­za­tion, the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood was allied with the Axis in World War II and nur­tured as anti-com­mu­nist cadre by West­ern Intel­li­gence (CIA in par­tic­u­lar) dur­ing the Cold War. Suc­cess­ful­ly scape­goat­ed by Euro­pean fas­cist groups like the Nation­al Front, ele­ments of the Broth­er­hood net­work with those same fas­cists, mutu­al­ly ben­e­fit­ting from cul­tur­al and polit­i­cal alien­ation gen­er­at­ed among their respec­tive sup­port­ers. Much of the pro­gram reviews and details the cor­po­ratist and free mar­ket eco­nom­ic phi­los­o­phy of the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood, an ide­ol­o­gy that endears the Ikhwan to pow­er­ful polit­i­cal and eco­nom­ic inter­ests in the U.S. and else­where in the West. Broth­er­hood ele­ments con­tin­ue to be used as proxy war­riors by ele­ments of West­ern and Sau­di intel­li­gence in places like the Cau­ca­sus and Chi­na’s Xin­jiang Province.


FTR #819 Proxy War and the Earth Island Boogie (What the Hell Does Dave Emory Mean by “Underground Reich?,” Part 3)

Author Peter Lev­en­da has post­ed an arti­cle (excerpt­ed from his recent book) that encap­su­lates sig­nif­i­cant ele­ments of dis­cus­sion pre­sent­ed by Mr. Emory and fea­tured on this web­site. Not­ing Impe­r­i­al Ger­many’s use of Islam­ic proxy war­riors dur­ing the First World War and Nazi Ger­many’s incor­po­ra­tion of the same strat­a­gem, Lev­en­da notes that Nazi ele­ments have con­tin­ued to use Mus­lim proxy war­fare to advance the goals of what Mr. Emory calls the Under­ground Reich. Hav­ing incor­po­rat­ed many impor­tant ele­ments of Nazi Ger­many’s nation­al secu­ri­ty estab­lish­ment into its own after World War II, the Unit­ed States has co-opt­ed the tac­tic of proxy war. To its detri­ment, the U.S. has failed to grasp that the Under­ground Reich and its Islamist prox­ies have their own agen­das. Those agen­das fea­ture the defeat of the Unit­ed States as a cen­ter­piece of long-term strat­e­gy. Con­clud­ing with an exam­i­na­tion of recent Amer­i­can mil­i­tary involve­ment, the pro­gram notes that much of what we are doing actu­al­ly ben­fits Ger­many and occurs in areas for­mer­ly belong­ing to the Ottoman Empire.


FTR #807 Update on the Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook

Updat­ing “L’Af­faire Snow­den,” this pro­gram sup­ple­ments infor­ma­tion about the eco­nom­ic dam­age done to the Amer­i­can IT sec­tor by Snow­den’s dis­clo­sures. Snow­den’s “op” was, among oth­er things, an act of eco­nom­ic war­fare against the U.S.–a “psy-op” designed to pro­vide grav­i­tas for a pre-deter­mined Ger­man and Brazil­ian effort to upgrade their own IT sec­tors at the expense of the U.S. Oth­er points of infor­ma­tion include: more doc­u­men­ta­tion of the effort by Face­book and oth­er U.S. tech firms to data mine their cus­tomers to an extra­or­di­nary extent; Glenn Green­wald’s con­tin­ued efforts on behalf of fas­cists of var­i­ous stripes; the extreme sen­si­tiv­i­ty of doc­u­ments giv­en by Snow­den to indi­vid­u­als and insti­tu­tions not not autho­rized to receive such impor­tant infor­ma­tion; Ger­many’s “acci­den­tal” spy­ing on John Ker­ry and Hillary Clin­ton; counter-intel­li­gence spar­ring by the CIA, NSA, GCHQ and BND.


The Unkrainian Weekly’s pro-OUN/B Bias

In our ongo­ing analy­sis of the Ukraine cri­sis, we have not­ed the pres­ence of Michael Boci­urkiw astride the “inves­ti­ga­tion” of the down­ing of MH flight 17. Boci­urkiw was a writer and Assis­tant Edi­tor for the Ukrain­ian Week­ly, a news­pa­per with a very obvi­ous pro-OUN/B bias. Rep­re­sen­ta­tive of The Ukrain­ian Week­ly’s pro-OUN/B cov­er­age is this obit­u­ary of OUN/B leader Jaroslav Stet­sko (also “Stet­zko,” pic­tured at right with then Vice-Pres­i­dent George H.W. Bush.)


FTR #804 Walkin’ the Snake in Ukraine, Part 2

Much of what we have learned about the down­ing of Malaysian Air­lines Flight MH 17 (and that isn’t much, sad­ly) has come through the fil­ter of the OSCE’s Spe­cial Mon­i­tor­ing Mis­sion in Ukraine. That body is head­ed by Michael Boci­urkiw, one of the first offi­cials on the scene of the crash after the dis­as­ter. A for­mer assis­tant edi­tor of the Ukrain­ian Week­ly, Boci­urkiw is con­se­quent­ly enmeshed with the pro-OUN/B heirs dom­i­nat­ing the polit­i­cal and nation­al secu­ri­ty affairs of Ukraine. Boci­urkiw also net­works with a Malaysian Mus­lim Broth­er­hood milieu that heav­i­ly over­laps the ele­ments loom­ing large in the dis­ap­pear­ance of Malaysian Air­lines Flight 370. The Malaysian Islamist net­work with which Boci­urkiw has traf­ficked is also linked to the events in, and around, the 9/11 attacks. After exam­in­ing more evi­dence that Ukraine’s mil­i­tary may have downed MH 17 and high­light­ing some remark­able coin­ci­dences fac­tor­ing in the inves­ti­ga­tion, the pro­gram fur­ther devel­ops infor­ma­tion about the Azov Bat­tal­ion. A fas­cist mil­i­tary for­ma­tion in Ukraine’s “anti-ter­ror­ist” cadre, the Azov Bat­tal­ion was formed by Oleg Lyashko, whose Rad­i­cal Par­ty is the sin­gle most pop­u­lar in Ukraine. For­eign snipers now serv­ing with the unit may well have fired at Ukrain­ian police dur­ing the Euro­Maid­an demon­stra­tions, demon­strat­ing what might be termed “a cul­ture of provo­ca­tion” man­i­fest­ed by the OUN/B suc­ces­sor ele­ments in pow­er in Ukraine.


How Hip Can You Get? Grover Norquist Heads to Burning Man

Pre­vi­ous­ly, we have mused about GOP pro­mo­tion for the Burn­ing Man Arts Fes­ti­val and the pos­si­bil­i­ty that “Haight Ash­bury II”–as we dubbed it–might actu­al­ly be anoth­er “op” with ele­ments of the intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty and orga­nized crime col­lab­o­rat­ing to exper­i­ment on the unwit­ting adher­ents of the so-called counter-cul­ture. Now, we learn that none oth­er than Grover Norquist is plan­ning on attend­ing this year’s gath­er­ing.


Update on the MH 17 Shootdown

Sup­ple­ment­ing infor­ma­tion pre­sent­ed in FTR #803, we learn that a web­site cater­ing to glob­al busi­ness trav­el­ers pre­sent­ed infor­ma­tion point­ing to Ukrain­ian mil­i­tary per­son­nel as the “perps” of the shoot­down of MH 17. The last minute change of course of the doomed plane was con­firmed by an Air India air­craft near­by.


FTR #803 Walkin’ The Snake in Ukraine

The Orwellian nature of jour­nal­is­tic cov­er­age of the Ukraine cri­sis has come to resem­ble Ser­pen­t’s Walk, the Nazi tract about an Under­ground Reich takeover of the U.S. The takeover occurs in large mea­sure through Nazi con­trol of the “opin­ion form­ing media.” West­ern media and polit­i­cal voic­es sys­tem­at­i­cal­ly white­wash the OUN/B ele­ments dom­i­nat­ing the Ukrain­ian nation­al secu­ri­ty estab­lish­ment, and the increas­ing­ly bloody war crimes they are com­mit­ting in Ukraine. It is against that back­ground that the down­ing of Malaysian Air­lines Flight MH17 occurred. Wide­ly report­ed to have been com­mit­ted by sep­a­ratist rebels, the shoot­down may have been per­formed by Ukrain­ian mil­i­tary per­son­nel. The “Go-to-Guy” for media and polit­i­cal ana­lysts in con­nec­tion with the MH 17 shoot­down is Michael Boci­urkiw, an appar­ent pro-OUN/B Ukrain­ian expa­tri­ate from Cana­da. Boci­urkiw is net­worked with Malaysian Mus­lim Broth­er­hood fig­ures over­lap­ping both the milieu of the Oper­a­tion Green Quest raids of 3/20/2002 and the “dis­ap­pear­ance” Malaysian Air­lines Flight 370.
