Who is Al Qaeda, really?

Is Al Qaeda just a smoke and mirrors neo-conservative/Israeli funded boogeyman?
I just found this old radio script from my series "What They Don't Tell You." [  link to www.radio4all.net ] early last year.

Hi, this is Jody Paulson from Moscow, Idaho with what they don't tell you.

Is Al Qaeda Just a Bush Boogeyman? That's the question posed by Rober Scheer in the Los Angeles Times. [  http://www.thenation.com/doc/20050124/scheer0111 ]

Scheer poses other questions, too:

-- How can it be that in Britain since 9/11, 664 people have been detained on suspicion of terrorism but only 17 have been found guilty, most of them with no connection to Islamist groups and none who were proven members of Al Qaeda?

-- Why did Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld claim on "Meet the Press" in 2001 that Al Qaeda controlled massive high-tech cave complexes in Afghanistan, when British and US military forces later found no such thing?

And finally, if Osama bin Laden does, in fact, head a vast international terrorist organization with trained operatives in more than 40 countries, as claimed by Bush, why, despite torture of prisoners, has this administration failed to produce hard evidence of it?

Scheer also notes that neither the 9/11 commission nor any court of law has been able to directly take evidence from the key post-9/11 terror detainees held by the United States and that everything we know about the orgainzation comes from parties who have a vested interest in keeping us scared.

I got this from Aljazeera's web site under "conspiracy theories": ["Mossad agents running operations from within the U.S."
 link to www.aljazeera.com ]

"Immediately after September 11th, stories were circulating that 5 Israelis were arrested in New York after being caught `celebrating' the strikes. They were placed in solitary confinement for weeks but then were quietly deported. [... ] Stories of Israelis being arrested by law enforcers are widespread and plenty with one common theme - they all get released and deported back to Israel with no charges filed against them.

"Furthermore, if one casts their mind a few years back the Mossad `warned' that some 200 Al-Qaeda members were planning major attacks in the US. Three years on and not one of these Al Qaeda members has been arrested or found.

"However, nearly 200 Israeli agents have been. Agents who included military personnel, electronics experts, wire and phone tapping experts and explosive experts with the skill to bring down buildings including high rises.

"Could it be that the 200 Al Qaeda members the Mossad warned about are in reality their own agents sent to frame Arabs for terrorist attacks?"

It's true that the Israeli Mossad and other intelligence services have been accused of a 13-month effort to "recruit" an Israeli-run, phony "al-Qaeda cell" among Palestinians. Col. Rashid Abu Shbak detailed incidents, some of which were described in official documents, of cell phone calls and e-mails, where Palestinians were asked to "join al Qaeda.." Shbak said, "We investigated the origin of those calls, which used [wireless phone] roaming, and messages, and found out they all came from Israel." Recruits received weapons and money that turned out to have been transferred from Israeli bank accounts. ["PA uncovers Israelis posing as Al-Qaeda agents"
 http://www.middle-east-online.com/english/?id=3544 ]

That kind of harkens back to the Lavon affair [  http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/lavon.html ], doesn't it? In 1954, Israeli agents working in Egypt planted bombs in several buildings, including a US diplomatic facility, leaving behind evidence implicating Arabs. However on of the bombs detonated prematurely, allowing the Egyptians to capture and identify one of the perpetrators, which in turn led to the round up of an Israeli spy ring.

Not that I think Israel is the sole beneficiary and impetus behind Al Qaeda, mind you. Just ask Condaleeza Rice, who in March 2000 said, "We need a common enemy to unite us."

[On 1/13/05] Steven Michael Ekberg of Ocala, FL appeared before a federal judge for possession of a biological agent. Investigators found the deadly toxin ricin in his home. However, according to the little blurb where I found this story, the FBI believes there is no link between Ekberg and any terrorist organizations. That may be so, but I'm always a bit suspicious about stories from Florida - especially Ocala, Florida, where FBI investigators searched Steven Hatfill's self-storage unit for evidence in the anthrax attacks.

I'm Jody Paulson, and I just thought you should know.

Only problem with the thesis is that documentary reports the motive of this sham is a response to liberalisim. Perhaps, but I thinks many institutions are obsolete as a consequence to individualism, modernity and above all science. Further the economy high energy dependence is taking its toll.

Who is Al Qaeda, really?

They are al CIAduh, SAS, MI5, MI6, CSIS, Interpol, and many others.

911 an inside job and Al Queda a false flag organization. Nearly all detainees haven't even picked up a stick against the United States. They are all innocent.

A new generation of sadistic torturers has been "trained." Who's next?

If they were, would we still be fighting the Viet Cong and NVA?

If Al Qaeda was really a CIA/ MI-6, Mossad tool ,they would be much more viscous and much more effective. As it sits now, Al Que-duh have been impotent since 2001, if you don't count some small bombings here and there.

------------------------------

1) Non sequitur
2) As a "catastrophic and catalyzing event," 9-11 was certainly effective.
3) Five jubilant explosives-tainted Urban Moving Systems agents with "maps linking them to the bombing plot" -- Mossad Israelis -- detained on 9-11 as "suspected conspirators" (Bergen Record, (9-12)

I'm up in Seattle, and personally, I have more fear of Israeli moving vans lurking the borders of local military installations than I ever had of 'Al Qaida'.
