Who is Bin Laden? Who is Al Qaeda?

A closer look at the official bogeymen of our "War on Terror."
These guys have been in the news a lot lately, but most Americans don't know anything about them except they are *bad guys* that "hate us for our freedom."

But what if, as this article [  http://emperors-clothes.com/articles/jared/madein.htm ] asks, "bin Laden and his associates were in fact old CIA hands?"

During the 1970's, Russia was our main concern, not Islamic extremists. So the US funded what has now become the Taliban, Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood to the tune of *hundreds of millions of dollars* [  http://newsone.com/1205745/cia-osama-bin-laden-al-qaeda/ ].

Does anyone remember the fact that George Bush Sr.'s business partners in the Carlyle Group were actually bin Ladens? [  http://globalresearch.ca/articles/NEW304A.html ] Bush Sr. was actually meeting with bin Laden's brother on the morning of 9-11!!! [  http://globalresearch.ca/articles/NEW304A.html ] Bush Sr. was actually meeting with bin Laden's brother on the morning of 9-11!!! [  link to www.prisonplanet.com ]

But you know, I doubt bin Laden himself lived much longer after that. So does this guy. [  link to lewrockwell.com ]

With new developments in Pakistan and Syria, I get the distinct feeling we're going to be hearing a lot more about al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood in the near future. Just remember who funded them in the first place.  http://whatreallyhappened.com/WRHARTICLES/fakealqaeda.php

Alleged CIA involvement
Main article: Allegations of CIA assistance to Osama bin Laden

Experts debate whether or not the al-Qaeda attacks were blowback from the American CIA's "Operation Cyclone" program to help the Afghan mujahideen. Robin Cook, British Foreign Secretary from 1997 to 2001, has written that al-Qaeda and Bin Laden were "a product of a monumental miscalculation by western security agencies", and that "Al-Qaida, literally 'the database', was originally the computer file of the thousands of mujahideen who were recruited and trained with help from the CIA to defeat the Russians."[275]

Munir Akram, Permanent Representative of Pakistan to the United Nations from 2002 to 2008, wrote in a letter published in the New York Times on January 19, 2008:

The strategy to support the Afghans against Soviet military intervention was evolved by several intelligence agencies, including the C.I.A. and Inter-Services Intelligence, or ISI. After the Soviet withdrawal, the Western powers walked away from the region, leaving behind 40,000 militants imported from several countries to wage the anti-Soviet jihad. Pakistan was left to face the blowback of extremism, drugs and guns.[276]

A variety of sources—CNN journalist Peter Bergen, Pakistani ISI Brigadier Mohammad Yousaf, and CIA operatives involved in the Afghan program, such as Vincent Cannistraro—deny that the CIA or other American officials had contact with the foreign mujahideen or Bin Laden, let alone armed, trained, coached or indoctrinated them.

This runs counter to the account of Milton Bearden, the CIA Field Officer for Afghanistan from 1985 to 1989, who distinctly recalls the unease he used to feel when meeting the Jihadi fighters: "The only times that I ran into any real trouble in Afghanistan was when I ran into 'these guys' - You know there'd be kind of a 'moment' or two that would look a little bit like the bar scene in Star Wars, ya know. Each group kinda jockeying around and finally somebody has to diffuse [sic] the situation."[277]


Check notes for good sources. Leave tinfoil at home.

Arabs did the 9/11 Attacks is a Crazy Conspiracy Theory. 11.Mar.2013 09:39

USA/NATO/Israel Axis of Evil

"Arabs did the 9/11 attacks" is a conspiracy theory.

The "threat of Global Islamic Terrorism" is a conspiracy theory.

The US Government's "9/11 Commission Report" is a conspiracy theory.

The US Govermment faked the Gulf of Tonkin incident.

The US Government lied about incubator babies in Kuwait.

The US Government lied about WMDs in Iraq.

If you believe the US Government's official version of the 9/11 Attacks, you are a gullible chump.

The US-led War on Terrorism is actually a US/NATO war of aggression for control of the resource-rich Middle East, Africa, and South Asia. The US/NATO/Israeli cabal perpetrate false flag attacks which they blame on Moslems to justify their aggressions.
