FTR #790 Now, About that Malaysian Airliner . . . .

Behind the pro­pa­gan­da about the dis­ap­pear­ance of Malaysian Air­lines Flight 370 being “mys­te­ri­ous,” the pro­gram notes the evi­den­tiary trib­u­taries run­ning between the pilot of the plane and the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood. In turn, Anwar Ibrahim (the pilot’s polit­i­cal idol) is deeply con­nect­ed to the indi­vid­u­als and insti­tu­tions inves­ti­gat­ed in the Oper­a­tion Green Quest raids of 3/20/2002. Grover Norquist’s lob­by­ing firm appears to have rep­re­sent­ed Ibrahim. The pro­gram also looks at a strange inci­dent, in which a young Soma­li boy suc­cess­ful­ly stashed him­self in the wheel well of a jet at San Jose air­port. Mus­lim Broth­er­hood-linked ele­ments fig­ure in the back­ground of the event. Con­clud­ing with the cor­po­ratist phi­los­o­phy of the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood, the broad­cast exam­ines com­par­isons between the orga­ni­za­tion and the GOP.


FTR #774 The Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook, Part 14: The Corporate Connections and the Public vs. Private Dynamic

Ben­i­to Mus­soli­ni, the world’s first fas­cist, defined fas­cism as “cor­po­ratism.” Ronald Rea­gan’s sig­na­ture polit­i­cal apho­rism was: “Gov­ern­ment isn’t the solu­tion to your prob­lems. Gov­ern­ment IS the prob­lem.” Loom­ing very large in the con­text of “L’Af­faire Snow­den” are the cor­po­rate con­nec­tions to this polit­i­cal phe­nom­e­non and what we call the “pub­lic ver­sus pri­vate dynam­ic.” With meta­da­ta to be stored by a “Third Par­ty,” we exam­ine Inter­net cor­po­ra­tions and their social respon­si­biltiy, or lack there­of. QUICK: What author­i­ty signed off on Snow­den’s actions, or those of Wik­iLeaks?


FTR #773 The Boston Marathon Bombing, the Third Position and the Leaderless Resistance Strategy

Many of the same ele­ments that fig­ured in the failed inves­ti­ga­tion into the 9/11 attacks crop up in con­nec­tion with the Boston Marathon bomb­ing, as well. In addi­tion to intel­li­gence ele­ments linked to the GOP/Petroleum/Underground Reich ele­ment of the intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty, there are indi­ca­tions that the accused bombers may have been indoc­tri­nat­ed with domes­tic fas­cist ide­ol­o­gy. An appar­ent ter­ror­ist attack on a PG & E pow­er sub­sa­tion at the same time may indi­cate that the “lead­er­less resis­tance” strat­e­gy is being man­i­fest­ed here.


Better Late than Never: Appellate Court Clears the Way for 9/11 Families to Sue Saudi Arabia

An appel­late court has cleared the way for fam­i­lies of 9/11 vic­tims to sue Sau­di Ara­bia, focus­ing on, among oth­er things, char­i­ties used to fund al-Qae­da. IF this inves­ti­ga­tion were to pro­ceed as far as it might, Grover Norquist, Karl Rove and oth­ers in the GOP/Bush milieu would come under scruti­ny, as would Fran­cois Genoud, Youssef Nada and the Under­ground Reich. In addi­tion, there is renewed focus on the redact­ed 28 pages of the Join Intel­li­gence Com­mit­tee Inquiry, which impli­cate Sau­di Ara­bia.


The Return of Bush’s Buddy: “Sammy the Aryan” Making the Rounds in Support of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood

For some time, we’ve cov­ered one of George W. Bush’s Mus­lim Broth­er­hood polit­i­cal asso­ciates Sami al-Ari­an. The Oper­a­tion Green Quest inves­ti­ga­tion into the financ­ing of ter­ror­ist groups (includ­ing al-Qae­da, Hamas and Pales­tin­ian Islam­ic Jihad) stemmed from an inves­ti­ga­tion into Sam­my al-Ari­an (“Sam­my the Aryan,” as we call him.) One of the lead­ers of Pales­tin­ian Islam­ic Jihad (pic­tured at right), al-Ari­an is now turn­ing out in sup­port of the oust­ed Egypt­ian Mus­lim Broth­er­hood.


Googling in the Bathtub with Grover Norquist

We have dis­cussed the fact that the col­lec­tion of meta­da­ta is rou­tine by Inter­net and cell­phone com­pa­nies, as well as retail out­lets that offer dis­count cards. (The har­vest­ing of meta­da­ta is the focal point of what the NSA does and what lies at the cen­ter of the “con­tro­ver­sy.”) Against the back­ground of Google’s financ­ing of Norquist’s cru­sades and oth­er right-wing caus­es, one can but won­der what Google may be doing with the vast amounts of meta­da­ta they har­vest.


FTR #749 Interview with John Loftus

In this inter­view, we review many of the top­ics cov­ered by John Lof­tus in pre­vi­ous inter­views: Sami al-Ari­an and Oper­a­tion Green Quest; the NSA’s project with the British GCHQ; the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood; the post World War II evo­lu­tion of a bina­ry CIA and State Depart­ment. In addi­tion, John con­firmed the work­ing hypoth­e­sis I pre­sent­ed in FTR #‘s 733 through 739, not­ing that thje Arab Spring was a U.S. intel­li­gence oper­a­tion. We also dis­cussed the Boston Marathon bomb­ing and CIA links to some of the Cau­casian jihadists. Much of the pro­gram involved a fas­ci­nat­ing account of con­vict­ed mob­ster Whitey Bul­ger’s mur­der of an IRA smug­gler turned fed­er­al infor­mant, a con­cate­na­tion that includ­ed a U.S. attor­ney’s recruit­ment of a Ukrain­ian Gestapo war crim­i­nal as an agent to pen­e­trate U.S. intel­li­gence for the Irish Repub­li­can Army!


Good Riddance to Bad Rubbish: Cause for Celebration, Reflection and Much, Much Caution

Resis­tance is NOT futile. Resis­tance is FERTILE! The Islam­ic fas­cist regime of Mohamed Mor­si has been deposed and the Egypt­ian army is crack­ing down on the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood. We coun­sel cau­tion, how­ev­er. The Broth­er­hood is an Islam­ic fas­cist orga­ni­za­tion that will con­tin­ue to func­tion as proxy war­riors for the Under­ground Reich. Hap­py Inde­pen­dence Day!


Corporatism and the Muslim Brotherhood

For many years, we have cov­ered the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood, an Islam­ic fas­cist orga­ni­za­tion allied with the Axis in World War II and nur­tured by ele­ments of West­ern intel­li­gence dur­ing the Cold War as anti-com­mu­nist cadre. In Jan­u­ary 2012, Salon.com pub­lished a very reveal­ing piece that pret­ty much lays it all out.


“Ein Reich, Ein Volk, Ein Erdogan!” (and “Ein Morsi, too”)

The Wik­iLeaks-assist­ed far-right covert oper­a­tion pop­u­lar­ly known as “the Arab Spring” has indeed result­ed in the ascen­dance of Erdo­gan-style gov­er­nance in the Mid­dle East. Turkey’s Mus­lim-Broth­er­hood pres­i­dent Tayyip Erdo­gan has respond­ed to pop­u­lar dis­sat­is­fac­tion with tac­tics and rhetoric rem­i­nis­cent of Mus­soli­ni and Hitler.
