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 #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!


Al Qaeda, the Underground Reich and Proxy War

In numer­ous pro­grams, we have dis­cussed the Under­ground Reich’s use of Al Qae­da and oth­er Mus­lim Broth­er­hood and Arab allies as proxy war­riors against the Unit­ed States. We have also spo­ken of Osama bin Laden’s goal of under­min­ing the U.S. econ­o­my through his ter­ror pro­gram. We can see Ayman al-Zawahir­i’s pro­posed strat­e­gy of advis­ing Mus­lims to invest in cur­ren­cies oth­er than the dol­lar and advis­ing them not to pur­chase Amer­i­can goods as both a strat­e­gy to under­mine the Unit­ed States, per se, and in terms of a long term strat­e­gy of help­ing to ele­vate Ger­many eco­nom­i­cal­ly.


Morsi Marches On: Veteran of Luxor Massacre Appointed to Governorship

One of the more grotesque aspects of this decades-long under­tak­ing has been watch­ing peo­ple hail the advance of fas­cism as some­thing “desir­able” and/or “demo­c­ra­t­ic.” Less than two years after the “Arab Spring” (“Mus­lim Broth­er­hood Spring” we call it) was hailed as a blos­som­ing of democ­ra­cy in the Arab world, it is prov­ing to be the instal­la­tion of Islam­ic fas­cism (or “cor­po­ratism” as Mus­soli­ni called his sys­tem) that we said it would be.


Fee, Fi . . . Ho, Hum: The Usual Suspect Elements Come into Focus in The Boston Marathon Bombing (“How Many Lies Can You Allow Yourself to Believe before You Belong to the Lie?”)

Numer­ous ele­ments have come into focus in con­nec­tion with the inves­ti­ga­tion of the Boston bomb­ing. They include a sub­sidiary of Dick Cheney’s Hal­libur­ton. In addi­tion, the mosque they attend­ed and at which they may have been rad­i­cal­ized is part of the milieu shep­herd­ed by Grover Norquist.


A Lie Can Run a Marathon Before the Truth Can Put Its Running Shoes on: (“Truther” Consequences)

The news cycle in this coun­try is dom­i­nat­ed by cov­er­age of the Boston bomb­ings. This is pre­dictable. So is the ten­den­cy toward sim­plis­tic and/or one-dimen­sion­al analy­sis. Gen­er­al­ly, we’re hear­ing: It was the “gov­ern­ment,” “home-grown domes­tic (i.e. right-wing, Aryan types) ter­ror­ists,” or “Islam­ic ter­ror­ists.” As this post indi­cates, the divi­sions among these are not near­ly so sim­ple.


Saudi Terrorism Link to Killing of Colorado’s Chief of Corrections?

The assas­si­na­tion of the head of the Col­orado Cor­rec­tions Depart­ment has raised ques­tions. One pos­si­ble motive might be Tom Clements’ recent denial of a peti­tion by Homaid­an al-Tur­ki, a Sau­di nation­al con­vict­ed on sex­u­al abuse charges and sus­pect­ed of involve­ment in ter­ror­ism. Al-Tur­ki enjoys the sup­port of the Sau­di gov­ern­ment and pop­u­lace, as well as the State Depart­ment.


Imagine, “Morsi Is a Textbook Islamic Fascist”: I Told You So, Part 3 (Democracy, Muslim Brotherhood Style, Part 3)

We recall the tsuna­mi of praise, Hosan­nas and Hal­lelu­jahs gush­ing forth from the world’s media and polit­i­cal pun­dit­ry. Hail­ing the “Arab Spring” as the dawn­ing of a new enlight­en­ment in that part of the world, they missed the boat–fundamentally. We, on the oth­er hand, were warn­ing that this phe­nom­e­non was a Nazi oper­a­tion, hav­ing been ini­ti­at­ed by pow­er­ful cor­po­rate forces in the sec­ond admin­is­tra­tion of George W. Bush, it had its trig­ger with the Wik­iLeaks milieu–itself a far-right, Nazi-linked enti­ty, as we demon­strat­ed in FTR’s 732 and #745. (In addi­tion to the doc­u­men­ta­tion in the orig­i­nal WikiLeaks/Arab Spring series, see the arti­cle excerpt­ed below.) Before delv­ing into details, an excel­lent overview of recent events in Egypt was pro­vid­ed in an Eng­lish-lan­guage blog by a cit­i­zen of that tor­tured coun­try. The con­tra­dic­tions and dead­ly under­cur­rents of unfold­ing events were elo­quent­ly summed up by Mah­moud Salem in “Imag­ine.”


Falling to Earth: September 11th Flight School Operator Rudi Dekkers Arrested for Drug Trafficking

Long able to escape legal ret­ri­bu­tion for his actions, Huff­man Avi­a­tion oper­a­tor Rudi Dekkers appears to have run out of luck. The Dutch/German pilot who ran the flight school through which 9/11 hijack­er Mohammed Atta and his Ger­man and Aus­tri­an asso­ciates infil­trat­ed the Unit­ed States has been arrest­ed in Hous­ton for drug traf­fick­ing. It remains to be seen what comes of this inves­ti­ga­tion, but the impli­ca­tions are poten­tial­ly stag­ger­ing.


German Intelligence and the 9/11 Conspirators

Ger­man intel­li­gence and law enforce­ment had the Ham­burg cell involved in the 9/11 attacks under sur­veil­lance by August of 1998 and did noth­ing. The offi­cer in charge of law enforce­ment activ­i­ties for Ham­burg at the time has report­ed­ly become head of the BND. Cou­pled with Atta’s Ger­man and Aus­tri­an asso­ciates in Flori­da, his spon­sor­ship by the Carl Duis­berg Gesellschaft and Ger­many’s sus­pi­cious manip­u­la­tion of “Curve­ball,” seri­ous ques­tions must be asked about the role of Ger­many and its intel­li­gence ser­vices with regard to 9/11 and the Iraq war.
