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.


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.


ISIS Blowback from Ukraine, Caucasian Covert Ops?

We high­light an arti­cle not­ing the mil­i­tary prowess and sophis­ti­ca­tion of ISIS. Crit­i­cal to this analy­sis is the appar­ent role of the Chechens in the tac­ti­cal devel­op­ment of the group. In the con­text of U.S. and West­ern sup­port for the OUN/B milieu in Ukraine, includ­ing the UNA-UNSO fight­ers who fought with the Chechens and else­where in the Cau­ca­sus, we may well be see­ing “blow­back” from our poli­cies vis a vis Ukraine. The Boston Marathon Bomb­ing also appears to be “Chechen blow­back.”


A Close Look at the Sources for the West’s “Intelligence” on Russian Action in Ukraine

We can’t say whether or not Russ­ian armor, self-pro­pelled artillery and oth­er forces have entered Ukraine. We CAN and DO say that the sources for such “intel­li­gence” are worse than unre­li­able. Note how many of the East­ern Euro­pean coun­tries man­i­fest­ing World War II fas­cist her­itage are NATO mem­bers. Note, also, where the reports of Russ­ian artillery inside Ukraine fir­ing on Ukrain­ian forces come from.The satel­lite imagery pur­port­ing to show Russ­ian armor and self-pro­pelled artillery inside of Ukraine comes from a pri­vate company–DigitalGlobe. That com­pa­ny was found­ed by key per­son­nel from Ronald Rea­gan’s Strate­gic Defense Ini­tia­tive.


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.)


Al-Jazeera, the Muslim Brotherhood and the Huffington Post

With the Mid­dle East boil­ing over and the lat­est install­ment of pre­dictable Hamas/Israeli blood­let­ting pro­ceed­ing apace, it is depress­ing (though not sur­pris­ing) to see The Huff­in­g­ton Post launch an Arab Lan­guage edi­tion edit­ed by a for­mer Al-Jazeera “jour­nal­ist.” Deeply con­nect­ed to the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood, Al-Jazeer­a’s ascen­sion as a sup­pos­ed­ly cred­i­ble media out­let marks anoth­er step in the real­iza­tion of Ser­pen­t’s Walk. Sol­diers of Hamas–the Pales­tin­ian branch of the Mus­lim Brotherhood–are seen salut­ing at right.
