FTR #862 9/11, The Muslim Brotherhood and the Earth Island Boogie, Part 1

Dis­cus­sion of Islamist ter­ror­ists 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. 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. Among the events that has been obscured by the pas­sage of time is the open oppo­si­tion to the Trea­sury Depart­men­t’s attempts at inter­dict­ing ter­ror­ist financ­ing mon­ey, on the grounds that it would “restrict” the free-flow of inter­na­tion­al cap­i­tal. Broth­er­hood ele­ments con­tin­ue to be used as proxy war­riors by ele­ments of West­ern and Sau­di intel­li­gence in places like Syr­ia, the Cau­ca­sus and Chi­na’s Xin­jiang Province. Pro­gram High­lights Include: The use of ISIS-linked Chechen fight­ers in Ukraine; Sau­di Bin Laden Group’s use of Sul­li­van and Cromwell as its gen­er­al coun­sel; Sul­li­van & Cromwell’s work on behalf of the finan­cial insti­tu­tions that were (suc­cess­ful­ly) resist­ing the Trea­sury Depart­men­t’s attempts at inter­dict­ing ter­ror­ist financ­ing; review of the forced res­ig­na­tion of Trea­sury Sec­re­tary Paul O’Neill fol­low­ing the 3/20/2002 Oper­a­tion Green Quest raids.


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.


FTR #806 Miscellaneous Articles and Updates

Con­tin­u­ing our updates of pre­vi­ous sto­ries and cov­er­age of arti­cles that sur­faced dur­ing the hia­tus in For The Record pro­duc­tion, we present infor­ma­tion that will serve as the foun­da­tion of future–as well as past inquiries. Begin­ning with the Boston Marathon bomb­ing, we note that the Tsar­naev broth­ers appear to have had [as yet unspec­i­fied] help in mak­ing their bombs. In addi­tion, the pro­gram high­lights stun­ning infor­ma­tion bout the 1980 Munich Okto­ber­fest bomb­ing, indi­cat­ing com­plic­i­ty by Ger­man gov­ern­ment offi­cials in the event, as well as evi­den­tiary trib­u­taries lead­ing in the direc­tion of Klaus Bar­bi­e’s Brides­grooms of Death mer­ce­nary group. After high­light­ing attempts by Hen­ry Kissinger and Richard Nixon to use Under­ground Reich ele­ments to desta­bi­lize the Ger­man gov­ern­ment of Willy Brandt, the broad­cast sets forth the Euro­pean Space Agen­cy’s employ­ment of Project HAARP devel­op­er Bernard “Ben” East­lund to devel­op tech­nol­o­gy osten­si­bly designed to neu­tral­ize tor­na­does. Tor­na­does do not occur in Europe and crit­ics have stat­ed that the tech­nol­o­gy might actu­al­ly make tor­na­does more destruc­tive.


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.


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.


Michael [AKA “Mykhailo”] Bociurkiw, The International Institute of Islamic Thought and the Downed Malaysian Airliners

In our last post, we not­ed that the inves­ti­ga­tion into the down­ing of MH 17 in Ukraine is, to a con­sid­er­able extent, being rep­re­sent­ed to the world by one Michael “Mykhai­lo” Boci­urkiw, who appears to be asso­ci­at­ed with the OUN/B milieu. Boci­urkiw also edit­ed, and wrote an intro­duc­tion to, a puff-piece book about Mahathir Muhammed, the anti-Semit­ic for­mer Prime Min­is­ter of Malaysia. Anoth­er intro­duc­to­ry piece for the book was writ­ten by Abdul­lah Badawi who, like Mahathir, was trained by Malaysian Mus­lim Broth­er­hood lumi­nary Moham­mad M. Abdul Rauf. Rauf, like Grover Norquist client Anwar Ibra­hahim, was close to the Inter­na­tion­al Insti­tute of Islam­ic Thought, raid­ed in the 3/20/2002 Oper­a­tion Green Quest raids. Zaharie Shah pilot­ed Malaysian Air­lines Flight 370 and was a polit­i­cal dis­ci­ple of Anwar Ibrahim (also a for­mer Malaysian Prime Min­is­ter.)


Modified Limited Hangout on the Disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370

In FTR #790, we dis­cussed the cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing the dis­ap­pear­ance of Malaysia Air­lines Flight 370. A recent Dai­ly Mail sto­ry rein­forces the inves­tiga­tive focus on the plane’s pilot–Zaharie Shah,reinforcing the fact that Shah was a fol­low­er of Anwar Ibrahim. The sto­ry does not men­tion, how­ev­er that Anwar Ibrahim is a promi­nent mem­ber of the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood; a co-founder of the Inter­na­tion­al Insti­tute of Islam­ic Thought–one of the insti­tu­tions that was a focal point of the Oper­a­tions Green Quest raids of 3/20/2002; a con­sult­ing client of GOP king­pin Grover Norquist.
