"AGAINST ALL ENEMIES: INCLUDING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE"
TERRORISM: TRICKS, LIES AND DECEPTIONS
by: Fahim A. Knight
There has been much written and reported on Terrorism since September 11, 2001 and most of it has been filtered and sanitized by western and United States propaganda machines in order to bolster public opinion and to silence their detractors by appealing to the raw ignorance of Americans who throughout history has always been swayed by emotional impulses more so than by rational and judicious reasoning. Wikipedia on-line research site defined terrorism in this manner, “Terrorism is an anxiety-inspiring method of repeated violent action, employed by (semi-) clandestine individual, group or state actors, for idiosyncratic, criminal or political reasons, whereby — in contrast to assassination— the direct targets of violence are not the main targets. The immediate human victims of violence are generally chosen randomly (targets of opportunity) or selectively (representative or symbolic targets) from a target population, and serve as message generators. Threat- and violence-based communication processes between terrorist (organization), (imperiled) victims, and main targets are used to manipulate the main target (audience(s)), turning it into a target of terror, a target of demands, or a target of attention, depending on whether intimidation, coercion, or propaganda is primarily sought (Schmid,1988)”
The media creates perceived enemies for the masses of the people, which serve as one of the most vital arms of the Elitist because of its power of persuasion and ability to guide, shape, and mold public opinion with a primary objective to manipulate the ignorant into complicity toward their goals and aspirations. The masses are always deliberately made misinformed and the first causality of all wars is TRUTH. George Orwell once stated, “In a time of deceit telling the TRUTH is a revolutionary act.” President George W. Bush and Former Prime Minister Tony Blair and his replacement Gordon Brown of Great Britain are low-level operatives of the Elitist who were giving assignments in which their power and wealth are minuscule in comparison to the wealth of the Invisible Power Brokers that they have committed serve.
Thus, in the United States we are gearing up for a change and/or transition of power of sought, with a presidential election perhaps between the presumptive Republican Nominee Senator John McCain and Senator Barack Obama and/or Senator Hillary Clinton will be squaring off in November 2008 against McCain for the right to sit as the next U.S. President and Sovereign world leader. Most people do not understand that neither of these potential presidential candidates—McCain, Obama, Clinton, etc., have the authority to alter foreign or domestic policy, these matters are determined outside the electorate and even with little input from their low level operatives. They all have agreed to a preconditioned script.
This writer first would like to give his readers a brief backdrop on why and how this article came about; it started on March 19, 2008, upon receiving a very intriguing and thought provoking e-mail from a brother and comrade named Dietrick Large whom I have much respect and have posted numerous articles on his powerful Blog titled Truth At Large: http://truthatlarge.blogspot.com/. Large posed a very interesting political scenario to me, which I would like to share his questions and my response; he stated, “Hello Bro. Knight just wanted to drop you a line. I am sure you are aware of the folly surrounding the democratic nomination process. I have contended since the start of this process Mrs. Clinton will get the nomination. I believe Mr. Obama will not get the nomination because of back room deals that will be struck between the Clinton campaign and super delegates. If this does in fact occur it will create a backlash by democratic supporters of Mr. Obama to abstain from voting in November. That is the scenario that will undoubtedly propel Mr. McCain into office.”
Large continues, “Or another scenario that could play out is anarchy in the streets because of the decision to select Mrs. Clinton as nominee thereby giving Mr. Bush justification to declare marshal law, suspend elections and assume full executive powers. I realize this may appear far fetched or remotely unlikely to happen but considering the nature of the current administration anything is possible. I would keep watch for any developments regarding any deployment of Black Water around major Metropolitan areas as we near the convention. With the present status of the national economy continuing to get worst and a fraudulent selection process these two may be the mix to ignite fascist opportunism to grab power. I realize again this sounds highly unlikely to occur but remember who would have ever thought 911 could happen.”
MY RESPONSE: “Thank you for dropping the line. Thus, always good to hear from you. Wow! This is some very good critical thinking and analyzing and need to be define and built upon for your Blog audience. Your insight is serious outside the box thinking and most of us have not thought that far down the line. Thus, all of your contentions are highly possible. The public must remember Bush stole two elections 2000 and 2004; there is precedence for duping the electorate and the status quo meeting little resistance from the masses of the people. They have systematically tested the will of the people and found them/us desensitize to oppression and tyranny.”
I use to trade commodities and in 2000 we could purchase a barrel of Middle Eastern crude oil at $ 27.00 USD and just in eight years crude now is approximately $110.00 per barrel, which translates to the public market paying now close to $4.00 per gallon. Where is the resistance?
The deal for the office of the United States presidency was cut by the Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission and the Bilderberger. Moreover, many of the "Super Delegates" are card carrying members of the three said powerful organizations who lobby on behalf of the hidden dynastic families (the Power Elite) that control all of humanity.
All the scenarios that you pointed out could be a working plan for their interest. I refer you to the book "None Dare Call it Conspiracy". They (Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton are playing the RACE CARD) are publicly trying to create political confusion by raising up Minister Jeremiah Wright and anger (dupe) the white public and perhaps eventually justify giving Clinton the Super Delegates; although Senator Obama may accumulate more popular vote, which ordinarily should declare him the winner. There is a lot more I could say. But your insight would make a good Blog discussion for the wide awake man and woman.”
My prediction is, who ever is appointed United States president, they will be giving the mission of staying the political course that was giving to President George Bush because war is big business and profitable for a minority sector who answers to no one. The Invisible Power Brokers—those hidden forces that orchestrated the 9/11 hoax do not follow the rules they make rules, which are geared exclusively toward expanding their world domination, increasing their massive wealth and enslaving humanity. 9/11 changed many paradigms and it actually has altered world political, economic and social orders for at least the next 100 years. There are 190 countries in the world. America has bases in 130 of them.
The United States and the world have become a police state, which covert Marshal Law is already in affect just go back and re-read the language written in the United States Patriot Act and how Bush and the United States Congress restructured the laws in order to give the government unprecedented authority over the lives of its own citizens and the citizens of the world. It appeared and became apparent after 9/11 that the American people were the real targets of the so-called governmental terrorist initiatives, which gave the appearance that this legislation were being put in place for America’s external enemies.
Noam Chomsky in his book titled, Hegemony or Survival: America’s Quest for Global Dominance” stated, “To be more precise, it was the public that was peering into the abyss. Those at the center of power relentlessly pursue their own agendas, understanding that they can exploit the fears and anguish of the moment. They may even institute measures that deepen the abyss and may march resolutely toward it, if that advances the goals of power and privilege. They declare that it is unpatriotic and disruptive to question the workings of authority—but patriotic to institute harsh and regressive policies that benefit the wealthy, undermine social programs that serve the needs of the great majority, and subordinate a frighten population to increase state control. “Literally before the dust settled’ over the World Trade Center ruins, Paul Krugman reported, influential Republicans signaled that they were ‘determined to use terrorism as an excuse to pursue a radical right-wing agenda.’”
The policies implemented under the umbrella of Homeland Security and the U.S. Patriot Act had a twofold objective—granting the United States Government (CIA, FBI, IRS, NSA, INS, ATF, US Customs, Secret Service, etc) what one rapp artist called the ALPHABET BOYS unlimited international and domestic powers, legality and jurisdictional authority and, neutralizing the United States Constitution and rendering the American citizens defenseless. For example, we have giving these Gestapo style agencies the authority like the F.B.I. and police to secretly search your home and office; impose secret government wiretaps on your phone, computer and/or Internet activity; secret investigations of your bank records, credit cards and other financial records; secret investigations of your library and book activities; the freezing of funds and assets without prior notice or appeal; secret examination of your medical, travel and business records; the creation of secret ‘Watch Lists” that ban those named from air and other travels. President Bush went even further he imposed Executive Order # 11921 provides that the president can declare a state of emergency that is not defined, and Congress can not review the action for six months; United States Treasury Department letter dated August 12, 2005 stated, “The government claims the power to seize all financial instruments: currency, gold, silver, and everything else if they deem an emergency exists.”
Alan Greenspan wrote in his book titled, “The Age of Turbulence: Adventures in a New World” that, “There was no bigger question in Washington than, Why no second attack? If al Qaeda’s intent was to disrupt the U.S. economy, as bin Laden had declared, attacks had to continue. Our society was open, our borders were porous, and our ability to detect weapons and bombs was weak. I asked this question of a lot of people at the highest levels of government, and no one seemed to have a convincing response.”
Greenspan goes on to state, “The expectation of additional terrorism affected virtually everything the government did. And, inevitably, the defensive bubble we’d created to protect our institutions influenced every decision. In 2002, the new homeland security program was prepared to significantly curtail individual freedoms by such measures as tightening identification requirements, steeping up identity checks, restricting travel, and limiting privacy. The leaders of both parties were on board. But when no further attacks came, the politicians gradually reverted to their pre-9/11 positions on civil liberties, some more quickly than others. It is interesting to hypothesize how the United States would look today if there had been a second, third, and fourth attack. Could our culture stand it?”
Moreover, after September 11, 2001 the United States Government convinced the masses of people that Islam and its so-called militant and radical theology had a political objective of taking over the world and this notion of misinformation played to the fears of an ignorant world society, which had brought into demonizing Al-Qaeda and the Taliban as posing a legitimate threat to the national security of the United States and the world. They even convinced the American people and the world, that Iraqi President Saddam Hussein was somewhat tied to the militant Al-Qaeda movement led by the “black sheep” former Royal Saudi Arabia Prince Osama Bin Laden who functioned as a Central Intelligence Agency Operative during the Afghanistan and Soviet Union conflict; Bin Laden was a loyal U.S. military ally.
Obadiah Shoher in his book titled, “Sampson Blinded: A Machiavellian Perspective on the Middle East Conflict” stated, “Morality is alien to politics. International relations are closed to good faith negotiations. Balance of power is the only operative foreign policy. The Middle East conflict is about the will: to freedom, to statehood, to religious identity. Liberal morality presumes all people similar, and erodes the West’s will to fight for its objectives. Only by shedding moral idealism we can win. Terrorism is a war like any other, not a crime. Terrorists must be respected as courageous fighters-and destroyed. Any means are good to that end, no matter what the collateral damage. Wars are not humane. Nuclear terrorism is unavoidable.”
It has been proven that Hussein had no connections to Al-Qaeda and was not involved in the World Trade Center bombing in New York City. The Saudi Royal Kingdom who claim to be the gatekeepers of the Holy City of Mecca, the seat of the Islamic religion; thus, these Wahhabi imposters, which so-called practice and advocate strict Sharia Islamic Law are staunch allies to the United States and one of the perceived enemies against Islam. This fact alone even to date serves as a religious antagonistic contradiction for Muslims and Islam throughout the world. The only thing worse would be if the Saudi Royal Government established diplomatic relations with the Zionist State of Israel. How could Saudi Arabia continue to be tolerated in the Islamic world as some moral standard?
Yaroslav Trofimov in his most intriguing book titled, “The Siege of Mecca: The Forgotten Uprising in Islam’s Holiest Shrine and the Birth of Al-Qaeda” analyze the 1979 attack on the Holy Kaaba, one the most bloodiest in modern times in which Muslim factions declared Jihad against what they perceived as anti-Islamic and western influences; in particular being led the Royal Saud family, the so-called gatekeepers of the Islamic religion. Many believed the Royal Family had co-opted Islam in the interest of the West and more importantly had compromised the true teachings of Prophet Muhammad and corrupted the faith. Trofimov stated, “On November 1979 . . . “The first of a new century—hundreds of gunmen stunned the world by seizing Islam’s holiest shrine, the Grand Mosque in Mecca. Armed with rifles that they had smuggled inside coffins, these men came from more than a dozen countries, launching the first operation of global Jihad in modern times. Led by a Saudi preacher named Juhayman al Uteybi, they believed that the Saudi royal family had become a craven servant of American infidels, and sought a return to the glory uncompromising Islam. With nearly 100, 000 worshippers trapped inside the holy compound, Mecca’s bloody siege lasted two weeks, inflaming Muslims rage against the United States and causing hundreds of deaths.”
The West did not declare war on terrorism, but declared war on Islam and at the same time watered down the United States Constitution, which was ultimately contrived to compromise civil liberties and eradicate all legal barriers and lawful rights afforded to the citizens of this country. Homeland Security even has implemented color codes as symbolism as to what our terrorist alert awareness should be on any giving day and we have know way of knowing, if these so-called alerts are real potential threats or psychological decoys aimed at creating public paranoia and tempering resistance to their police state motives . For example, code red, code orange, code yellow and this psychological game allow the government to fear bait the people into capitulating to what use to be violations of their constitutional rights, but today it is standard operational procedure because the government has convinced us that they have our security interest at front and center, but at the expense of our civil liberties.
This was a very heavy price to pay for a perceived enemy that in reality pose no threat to the civility and national security of the United States. The former Secretary of State Colin Powell, a decorated career soldier used his image as a seasoned military man and as a polished diplomat to convince the American People that Iraq and Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and he was bent on using them irresponsibly against the West, as well as, against his Kurdish neighbors and his own Iraqi citizens to the north.
Secretary Powell in 2003 used the world’s most formidable stage, the United Nations as a bully pulpit to layout a well planned and deceitful propaganda ploy to justify why America should consider a military strike against Iraq and began the process to depose Saddam Hussein who was once America’s long time friend and ally. President Bush, Central Intelligence Agency, State Department, etc., they all knew Hussein did not possess Weapons of Mass Destruction, but Bush in part was dealing with sentiments that were a decade old from Desert Shield and Desert Storm, which his father President George H.W. Bush could not successfully resolve.
President George W. Bush made the Iraq War personal and literally at the expense of American taxpayers, thus, early on he said he wanted Hussein removed from power because he threaten to assassinate his father and many had forgotten that Bush senior, the former CIA Director and Hussein were bosom buddies. Hussein fought the Shia Islamic Muslims of Iran for his United States friends Reagan/Bush and was rewarded with large amounts of U.S. tax money in the form of foreign aid packages. Bush and former CIA director George Tenet knew that Iraq and Saddam Hussein had no official connections with Al-Qaeda nor was Iraq involved in state sponsor terrorism and definitely had no political or military relations with the militant Islamic faction headed by Bin Laden.
Yet, Bush led the American people to believe on September 11, 2001 that Iraq and its leader were directly involved in this assault against America and the American people; although there was no definitive intelligence data suggesting such notion, it was all contrived speculation on Bush’s part to began to solidify his globalization and one world government objectives. There were initially many objectives on table and there were none more essential than radical—militant Islamic factions needing to be dealt with; in particular after the cold war and the collapse of the former Soviet Union. Islam and Muslims stood as the only enemy capable of challenging the West for the hearts and minds of humanity and possibly could stand in the way of the vast Oil Reserves lying beneath sovereign Islamic lands and territories that was deemed exploitable by the Elitist.
Richard A. Clarke, the former counterterrorism Czar for George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush authored the monumental book titled, “Against All Enemies: Inside America’s War on Terror” stated, “One would have thought that it was equally obvious after September 11 that high on the priority list would have been improving U.S. relations with the Islamic world, in order to dry up support for the deviant variant of Islam that is al Qaeda, the enemy that attacked us, was engaged in its own highly successful propaganda campaign to influence millions of Muslims to act against America, as a first step in a campaign to replace existing governments around the world with Taliban-like regimes. To defeat that enemy and prevent it from achieving its objectives, we needed to do more than just arrest and kill people. We and our values needed to be more appealing to Muslims than al Qaeda is. By all measures, however, al Qaeda and similar groups were increasing in support from Morocco to Indonesia. If that trend continues, the radical imams and their madrassas schools will (Donald Rumsfeld finally understood in 2003, as reflected in his leaked internal memo that painted a far more bleak assessment of the war on terrorism than his public statements) produce more terrorist than we jail or shoot. Far from addressing the popular appeal of the enemy that attacked us, Bush handed that enemy precisely what it wanted and needed, proof that America was at war with Islam, that we were the new Crusaders come to occupy Muslim land.”
The Morgans, Rothschilds, Oppenheimers, Rockefellers, etc., those hidden entities that posses untold financial wealth and serve as sovereign international bankers wasn’t about to allow some fundamentalist Islamic theology to interfere with their plans to control Iraq which was the second largest Oil Reserve in the world. George Bush and all other so-called world leaders and presidents take their orders from this powerful Elite and they have no choice in the matter because their own ascension to so-called power and accumulation of wealth was granted to them by that Circle, with in a Circle, with in Circle—the power Elite who has the ability to reward and punish, it is obedience and loyalty that are non-negotiable in this slave too slave master relationship.
Islam became expendable in the so-called war on terror and 9/11 forever changed the perception of Islam, as far as being characterized by the West as an antagonistic evil force bent on destroying “Great Satan” the United States of America, as Imam Ayatollah Khomeini once referred to the U.S.. The United States could justify imposing its vast military might on defenseless Muslim nations and people, in the name of combating terrorism, but Islam since 9/11 has shown a resilience to adapt and make religious and political transitions where as nationalism, ethnicity and Islamic sectarianism became somewhat secondary. For example, in Afghanistan where the Taliban (majority Pashtun, Tajik, Farsiwan, Qezelbash ethnic groups and Al-Qaeda (Middle Eastern Arabs) closed ranks under the larger unified banner of Islam and although there were President Hamid Karzai, a United States puppet in Afghanistan and King Abdulaziz bin Abdulrahman Al Saud better known as King Abdullah (who proceeded King Fahd) of Saudi Arabia another U.S. puppet; however, neither of these puppets have the power to influence these militant Islamic warriors who have united under the banner of Islam in spite of the titles of Shia or Sunni, but as Muslim brothers fighting what they perceive as a common enemy.
Former President Jimmy Carter in his book titled, “Palestine Peace Not Apartheid” stated, “There are growing schisms in the Middle East region, with hardening Arab animosity toward the Israeli-United States alliance. The war in Iraq has dramatized the conflict between Sunni and Shia Muslims, and has strengthened the influence of Iran. Militant Arabs, including Hamas and Hezbollah, have been given new life and influence as they are seen to be struggling against Israeli occupation of Palestine. The absence of any viable peace initiative exacerbates each individual controversy.”
President Bush and General David Petraeus know that Iraq war had no real military objective other than stealing Oil and sending young poor and middle class soldiers to fight a war as sacrificial lambs in defense of the Elite Superrich and their quest to continue filling their coffers with untold Oil wealth. The American people out of ignorance initially applauded the United States Government so-called efforts against terrorism and did not realize the real assault was on the United States Constitution and the rights afforded to the American people via this document; this writer has written about this in prior articles. Islam is not the enemy of the American people because prior to and after 9/11 most Americans had an obscure and a distorted view of the religion of Islam that was founded by Muhammad Ibn Abdullah (570 A.D—632 A.D.) over 1400 years ago; although it is the second largest and fastest growing religion in the world behind Christianity, but American ignorance was pervasive.
The next American president will inherited a “new world” with an entirely different, but volatile political landscape and more importantly will inherited a world that has been shaped by eight years of President George W. Bush who has isolated Muslim and Islamic nations, which represents over 1 billion adherents. The first international order of business will be how the United States deals with Iran and its controversial President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The United States should have learned some valuable lessons from the Iraq conflict, which lacked clear military and political objectives and it was a war that the United States should have never entered. It has cost the United States taxpayers close to a trillion dollars, we have over 150, 000 U.S. troops deployed on a mission they can not win because the enemy is not well defined and when you fail to exercise diplomacy, it is destined to create a mess. The United States has lost over 4, 000 servicemen to this war and our next Commander in Chief has to be able implore better foreign policy judgment and not be swayed by corporate interest. Iran just as Iraq is an oil rich Islamic state and U.S. Foreign policy toward Iran should be civil and with respect to this nation's sovereignty—let’s consider diplomacy over war and not further isolate America from the Islamic world.
Former CIA Director George Tenet in his book titled “At the Center of the Storm: My Years at the CIA” stated, “We need to understand that people in the Middle East need a foundation that will allow them to migrate to more representative forms of government in their own way and at their own pace. Simply shouting ‘democracy’ without the existence of a vibrant civil society, and without paving the way for the educational, economic, and institutional transformation required as a foundation for that democracy, may well take us backward and empower the very extremists whose strength we are trying to diminish. Once these extremists gain power, they are unlikely to let it go. Their concept of democracy is ‘One man, one vote . . . one time.’ I believe that if we insist on trying to remake the world in our image, we will fail. Still, we must engage relentlessly to foster a solution to these problems, because the region that served as the cradle of civilization also holds the potential to be its grave.”
