FTR #891 How Might Colonel L. Fletcher Prouty Have Viewed Edward Snowden? (The Foxes Aren’t Guarding the Henhouse, They ARE the Henhouse, Part 2: Update on the Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook)

One of the most incisive critics of the CIA was the late [U.S. Air Force] Colonel L. Fletcher Prouty. Chosen by Allen Dulles to set up “focal point” functions for CIA within other agencies of the U.S. government, Prouty was instrumental in the creation of what he called a “Secret Team”–the title of his 1969 book about “The Agency.” Dulles’ secret network infiltrated the military, the State Department, the FAA and even the White House. Looking at CIA officer Edward Snowden’s activities, Prouty would NOT have taken them at face value and would have seen them against the background of the sub-rosa activities with which he was familiar and had helped create, weighing the possibility that Snowden was operating against NSA on behalf of CIA. Much of the program details the sabotage of Francis Gary Powers’ U-2 spy plane in 1960 on the eve of a summit conference between then U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower and Soviet Premier Nikita Khruschev. Dispatched against the specific orders of Dwight Eisenhower, the U-2 appears to have been deliberately sabotaged. The incident led to the cancellation of the summit conference and the neutralization of detente between the Soviet Union and the United States. Prouty would have noted that Edward Snowden was working for the CIA when he undertook his leaking operation. Prouty would also have noted Snowden’s extreme right-wing views and would not have taken his activities at face value. Snowden’s journey to Hong Kong frustrated President Obama’s attempts at resolving U.S. and Chinese electronic spying and hacking. Snowden’s China sojourn also anticipated U.S. military and economic pressure on China. Snowden’s journey from China to Russia led to the cancellation of a summit conference between Obama and Putin and ended the Obama administration’s “reboot with Russia.” The Snowden “op” preceded the Maidan covert operation and attendant Ukrainian civil war, as well as Western economic pressure on Russia. As a trained intelligence officer, Prouty would have noted that the 1.7 million documents (2.7 million by some accounts) purloined by Snowden fundamentally compromised NSA, perhaps to prevent whistle-blowing on CIA use of Muslim Brotherhood-related Islamists as proxy warriors and heralds of corporatist economics in what Mr. Emory calls “The Earth Island Boogie.” The program concludes with discussion of the intelligence connections of the very privacy activists who are supposedly opposed to U.S. government electronic surveillance. Are Snowden and those so-called “privacy activists” actually “focal point” personnel in the networks set up for Allen Dulles by Prouty? Program Highlights Include: Tor network developer and “privacy activist” Jacob Applebaum’s links with U.S. intelligence asset Gene Sharp; Gene Sharp’s seminal role in the so-called “color revolutions,” some of which are featured in “The Earth Island Boogie;” the links of Applebaum and other “privacy activists” with the Broadcasting Board of Governors, a long-time CIA and State Department cut-out; review of Applebaum’s participation in “L’Affaire Snowden;” so-called “privacy activists’ ” advocacy of apps and networks developed by the BBG.


FTR #886 What the Hell Does Dave Emory Mean by “The Earth Island Boogie?,” Part 3: Geopolitical Quicksand

Analyzing the possibility that American use of Muslim Brotherhood Islamists as proxy warriors and armed heralds of corporatist free-market economic values might backfire on the United States, we look at the development of ISIS, the curious Turkish about-face on the Fetullah Gulen organization and fallout from the so-called “Arab Spring.” Beginning with discussion of a “doomsday” contingency plan concocted by al-Qaeda and Saddam Hussein to back each other up militarily in the event either or both were overthrown by the U.S., we examine the prominent role of former members of Saddam’s officer corps in administering ISIS. ISIS and al-Qaeda are holding forth in Libya, which is serving as a base for spreading their operations into Africa. Like the bloody Syrian civil war, the overthrow of Khadafy (which set the stage for the Islamist presence in Libya) is an outgrowth of the so-called “Arab Spring”–one of the “conga-line ops” we highlighted in FTR #885. Much of the program highlights the operations of the Fetullah Gulen organization in Turkey. Alleged to be a CIA front organization and Islamic extremist in nature, the Gulen organization was formerly an ally of Tayyip Erdogan. Now, it is among his most bitter opponents. Program Highlights Include: review of Hitler’s view that Islamists were a crucial Third Reich ally; review of a critical meeting in Switzerland at which prominent Euro-fascists and al-Taqwa director Ahmed Huber met; speculation that the Swiss “Euro-fascist” summit may have helped generate the intelligence disinformation that helped lure the Bush administration into the ill-advised Iraq war; “ex” CIA officer Graham Fuller’s ridicule of the allegation that the Gulen organization is a CIA front organization; the close connections between Erdogan’s AKP Party, Germany and the EU.


FTR #885 What the Hell Does Dave Emory Mean by “The Earth Island Boogie?,” Part 2: “The Conga-Line ‘Ops’ “

For most of this decade, Mr. Emory has analyzed an overlapping series of “ops” that have determined much of contemporary political reality. At the epicenter of this dynamic is the Earth Island. “The Earth Island Boogie” embraces an overlapping series of “ops” including: the so-called “Orange Revolution” of Ukraine, WikiLeaks, the so-called “Arab Spring,” “L’Affaire Snowden” and the Maidan coup of 2014. ISIS is a direct outgrowth of the so-called “Arab Spring.” This broadcast presents a detailed overview of “the conga-line ‘ops,'” featuring links to key text excerpts providing longer analysis of these dynamics.


FTR #884 What the Hell Does Dave Emory Mean by “The Earth Island Boogie”?, Part 1 (Turkish Taffy, Part 4)

Clarifying and further developing analysis of geopolitical discussion from both previous and future broadcasts, this program details the developing Islamic fascism of Turkey’s Tayyip Erdogan. Both a NATO country and Muslim Brotherhood-derived Islamist in nature, Turkey is also manifesting aggressive militarism. Silencing opposition press and legal investigators who have discovered his support for Islamic terrorists, Erdogan is proposing sweeping constitutional changes and invoking Hitler’s Germany as political precedent. Erdogan’s AK Party evolved from the Muslim Brotherhood and the Bank al-Taqwa milieu. Program Highlights Include: Erdogan’s AK Party’s links with Germany and the EU; Turkey’s dispatch of troops into Iraq, against the wishes of the Iraqi government; Hitler’s political last will and testament, envisioning Islamists as proxy warriors to fulfill his political agenda; review of Zbigniew Brzezinski’s endorsement of Muslim Brotherhood-derived Islamists as proxy warriors against Russia in the Caucasus and China in Central Asia.


FTR #881 Turkey Shoot: Sleepwalking into World War III

This broadcast features Pierre Sprey’s analysis of the shootdown of a Russian Su-24 fighter plane, allegedly after violating Turkish air space. (Sprey was one of the developers of the F-16.) Sprey’s analysis can be summed up: ” . . . Look­ing at the detailed Russ­ian time­line of what happened—as well as the much less detailed Turk­ish radar maps—I’d say the evi­dence looks pretty strong that the Turks were set­ting up an ambush. They cer­tainly weren’t doing any­thing that would point to a rou­tine air patrol along the bor­der. . . .” Sprey’s breakdown of the event notes that: the area being attacked by the Su-24’s was a base for Turkish-backed Nusra Front and ISIS fighters and ethnic Turks; the Russian planes were not attacked on their first pass, allegedly overflying a small piece of Turkish territory extending into Syria; the Russian planes were attacked on their second attack on the area, well inside of Syrian territory; the Turkish F-16’s were loitering below Syrian and Russian radar, burning much fuel; the Turkish F-16s were refueled by tanker planes to, and from, the target area; the F-16s were under Turkish ground control; the F-16s flew straight to an apparent ambush point; the Turkish aircraft then rose up to ideal firing position, after which they executed a hard right turn, diving below Syrian and Russian radar and violating Syrian air space; the F-16s did not contact the Russian aircraft, as required by international protocol; Turkish ground control may well have broadcast a warning on a frequency they knew the Russian aircraft could not hear; Russian anti-aircraft missiles installed in Syria to guard against a future incident of this type can fire two hundred miles into Turkey, perhaps setting the stage for World War III.


FTR #880 The ISIS File: The Myth of the Moderates

Continuing our analysis of an overlapping series of massive covert operations in the Earth Island utilizing Muslim Brotherhood-based Sunni jihadists and intersecting Pan-Turkist elements, we analyze the genesis of ISIS. Stemming from a covert operation in which elements of CIA, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar and the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood are operating in Southern Turkey to enable jihadists in Syria, ISIS appears to be something of a Frankenstein’s monster. Envisioned as a Salafist principality in Eastern Syria to destabilize the Assad regime, the Islamic State used AQI (Al-Qaeda in Iraq) infrastructure to spread into Iraq, threatening the “gains” of the misguided U.S. invasion of that country. Now, this Islamist Frankenstein’s monster is attacking the West, driving the political spectrum in Europe and the United States rightward. That reaction, in turn, is fueling Muslim alienation to the delight and benefit of ISIS. Program Highlights Include: ISIS chief Al-Baghradi’s “former” membership in the Muslim Brotherhood; the decisive role of Chechen fighters in ISIS; the alliance of UNA-UNSO fighters (Pravy Sektor) in Chechnya and Georgia; ISIS’s use of Bitcoin to stash their financial assets; ISIS’s use of an encrypted Berlin-based messaging service for its communiques; an oblique endorsement of ISIS by the chief of Turkish intelligence; review of the re-direction of the anti-Soviet jihadist effort in Afghanistan to anti-Russian combat in Chechnya; review of Zbigniew Brzezinski’s endorsement of using jihadists against Russia in the Caucasus and China in central Asia.


FTR #879 Further Update on Pan-Turkism, Islamism and the Earth Island Boogie

As the title indicates, this broadcast continues analysis of the growing confluence of Muslim-Brotherhood dominated Islamism and Pan-Turkist elements, this against the background of the mounting hostilities overtaking the region. After repeating a quote from Zbigniew Brzezinski read by Elizabeth Gould in FTR #872 proposing to use Islamists to destabilize post-Cold War Russia and China, we highlight an article detailing Turkish military support for Turkmen militia and overlapping Nusra Front (al-Qaeda) and ISIS combatants in Syria. Turkey’s recent shootdown of a Russian combat jet appears to have resulted from Turkish air cover for the so-called “moderates” in Syria. Much of the first half of the program consists of analysis of an article examining how U.S. military interventions of recent decades have helped install Islamist regimes in place of secular ones–this in areas that had once been part of the Ottoman Empire. As noted by the author, Germany is a quiet, principal benefactor of the U.S. action. In our series about the so-called “Arab Spring.” (we call it “The Muslim Brotherhood Spring”), we noted that Erdogan’s Turkey was not a “moderate” Islamic democracy at all, but a Muslim Brotherhood autocracy evolved from the al-Taqwa milieu. Even many Turkish citizens are now openly charging Erdogan with being a fascist. As we see Grey Wolf elements working in Syria, Asia and (in all probability) in Ukraine, we should not forget that Turkey is also a NATO country. The program concludes with a re-broadcast of FTR #59, highlighting the Grey Wolves’ role as the Turkish “Stay Behind” forces. Operation Stay Behind was a NATO program to use fascist formations as reserve guerilla forces, to be used either in the event of World War III or against a democratically-elected leftist government in Europe. Not surprisingly, the Stay Behind forces often precipitated terror attacks and assassinations in their host countries.


FTR #878 Update on Pan-Turkism, Islamism and the Earth Island Boogie

In recent years, we have noted growing confluence between Muslim Brotherhood-based Islamism and Pan-Turkist elements. In addition to their utility as proxy warriors against the former Soviet Union, the former Yugoslavia, Russia and contemporary China, the Muslim Brotherhood is viewed with favor in the West because of its corporatist economics. As events in Ukraine, the Middle East and Asia continue to heat up, the Islamist/Pan-Turkist connection appears to be solidifying. The “cement” that is bringing them together appears to be elements of Western intelligence, the Underground Reich/transnational corporate faction of the CIA in particular. We are now seeing Islamist/Pan-Turkist combatants active all around the Earth Island: Grey Wolf-linked combatants working with elements of CIA in Syria, backed by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar and having executed a Russian pilot who bailed out of his jet shot down by a Turkish F-16; Chechen/ISIS-linked fighters in Ukraine fighting under Pravy Sektor command; Crimean Tatars backed by Turkey and collaborating with Pravy Sektor sabotaging the Crimean power grid, water supply and road traffic and Grey Wolves working with the al-Qaeda-linked Uighurs in China (apparently authoring a terrorist bombing in Thailand directed against Chinese tourists). With Pan-Turkist Islamists fighting against Russia in Ukraine and against China in fossil-fuel-rich Xinjiang Province and Thailand, it is difficult not to see the hand of the Underground Reich faction of CIA at work. Much of the program consists of a re-broadcast of part of AFA #14 talking about the former World Anti-Communist League and the powerful Pan-Turkist element within the Anti-Bolshevik Bloc of Nations. Program Highlights Include: Pan-Turkist collaboration with the Third Reich and the pre-war Promethean League; National Action Party founder Alparsan Turkes’ agitation on behalf of Turkish entry into World War II on the side of the Axis; Turkes’ role as a key Turkish representative to NATO; the Turkish government of Tayyip Erdogan’s overt support for the Crimean Tatars as well as the Turkmen militia in Syria; Pan-Turkist SS veteran Ruzy Nazar’s work for elements of CIA and his presence at the WACL conference in Dallas in 1984 as a representative of the ABN.


FTR #872 Interview with Elizabeth Gould and Paul Fitzgerald about Zbigniew Brzezinski, Afghanistan’s Untold Story and the Ukraine Crisis

Revisiting Elizabeth Gould and Paul Fitzgerald, co-authors of “Invisible History: Afghanistan’s Untold Story,” we examine Zbigniew Brzezinski’s role in luring the Soviet Union into the first Afghan war, and his prominent role as a geopolitical theoretician behind the Ukrainian crisis. Seeking to give the USSR “their Vietnam,” Brzezinski deliberately set the stage for the war that ultimately led to the creation of al-Qaeda. Seeing Ukraine as a key to control of Eurasia and the World Island or Earth Island, Citizen Brzezinski has been a leading advocate for Western involvement in Ukraine. His son Ian has advocated for loosening the chain of command governing the use of nuclear weapons. Program Highlights Include: review of the corporatist economic philosophy of the Muslim Brotherhood; CIA officer Graham Fuller’s role in the precipitation of the first Afghan war; discussion of the Rockefeller milieu and its role in spawning Brzezinski, as well as Henry Kissinger; review of the role of ISIS-linked Chechen fighters in the fighting in Ukraine; review of the American violation of a promise made to Gorbachev not to expand NATO up to the Russian border; review of the Boston Marathon Bombing, which appears to have been “blowback” from an apparent covert operation in the Caucasus.


FTR #863 9/11, The Muslim Brotherhood and the Earth Island Boogie, Part 2

Stretching from the Straits of Gibraltar, all across Europe, most of the Middle East, Eurasia, Russia, China and India, that stretch of land known as the “Earth Island”: comprises most of the world’s land mass; contains most of the world’s population and most of the world’s natural resources (including oil and natural gas.) Geopoliticians have long seen controlling that land mass as the key to world domination. In this broadcast, we examine what might be termed political strange bedfellows grouped together against Russia and China and advancing an apparent Underground Reich and corporatist agenda in parts of Russia and China. In addition to the Tibetan Buddhist milieu of the Dalai Lama, Uighur Muslims associated with Al Qaeda and the Pan-Turkist movement are ranked together under the banner of the UNPO and the House of Habsburg. Active in Ukraine, part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire for centuries, the Habsburgs appear to be a coordinating executive element mobilizing the diverse ethnic groups working against Russia and China. Program Highlights Include: OUN/B operative Paula Dobriansky’s control of the Tibet Desk at the State Department; Uighur links to Al Qaeda and other Muslim Brotherhood offshoots; review of the Dalai Lama’s historical relationships with the SS and the CIA; review of Peter Levenda’s concept of “weaponized religion;” support for the Uighurs by the Pan-Turkist and fascist National Action Party; Erkin Altepkin’s alliances with the Habsburg milieu, the Dalai Lama and elements of Western intelligence; the growing presence of ISIS-affiliated fighters from Chechnya in the Ukrainian conflict.
