al-Zarqawi a false flag operative?
Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the terrorist leader credited with the beheading
deaths of Nick Berg and Kim Sun-Il, did not exist it would be necessary
for the United States to invent him. That may well be what the CIA has
Really? Is that credible? Would an intelligence and espionage service
really murder its own people, or neutrals, or citizens of an allied
country? Would it cynically kill harmless civilians with terrorist-style
bombings? Would it snuff out the lives of innocents to make a political
point or create a climate of fear?
answer is Yes. For an example and we need look no further that
the career of Iyad Allawi, the new, hand-picked, prime minister of Iraq.
According to a New York Times report in June this year, former
CIA operatives say Allawi, who ran a CIA-backed exile organization,
the Iraqi National Accord (INA), organised a bombing and sabotage campaign
in the early 1990s. The targets included a cinema and a school bus.
At the time the CIA was trying to foment a military coup against Saddam
Hussein and it is probable that the bombing campaign was intended to
destabilise the regime by creating a climate of fear and instability.
the espionage community, operations like this, for which no group claims
responsibility, are known as grey operations. If they are
attributed to a source other than that which carried them out, theyre
called black operations and theyre carried out by
false flag operatives.
the wilderness of mirrors that is espionage, black ops have
a long and seedy history. The British army employed them in their colonial
war against Kenyas nationalist Mau Mau Guerillas, where they fielded
bands known as the Pseudo Mau Mau to infiltrate and hunt
down the real nationalists. These bands were largely made up of common
criminals or Mau Mau guerrillas who had been turned. In
order to create a climate of opinion favourable to the colonial administration
the Pseudo Mau Mau did not hesitate to kill missionaries and innocent
villagers. The same tactics were used by the South African Apartheid
regime in its struggle against the African National Congress. Sophisticated
false flag operations carefully manipulate half-mad or opportunist followers
of a cause.
CNN and the CIA sees Zarqawis hand in dozens of events, ranging
from the beheading of Nick Berg (where he supposedly wielded the knife)
to the ricin poison attacks supposedly thwarted in several countries
and the Madrid train bombing.
if the CIA has the genuine spectre of Osama bin Laden to justify its
agenda, why would it need Zarqawi?
as a bogeyman, bin Laden was always a distinct liability. His long and
well-documented connection to the CIA, the Bush family and the Texas
oil industry are a major embarrassment. By contrast, Zarqawi is a shadowy
figure with no worrying connections to the American establishment. He
is the terrorist monster straight from Central Casting, almost tailor-made
for the grim realities of the post-invasion period and the run-up to
the US and Australian elections. Supposedly he is a Sunni from an impoverished
Palestinian family in Jordan. To CNN, he is, conveniently, a master
of disguise and lone wolf, acting independently of
Zarqawi is not much liked by the bulk of the Iraqi resistance, and why
would he be? Everything he has ever done objectively aided the US propaganda
machine. Particularly telling is his plan to advance the Islamist agenda
by provoking civil war between Sunnis and Shias. The plot is set out
in a rambling nine-page letter from al-Zarqawi to Osama bin Laden. It
was supposedly captured by the occupation forces and was helpfully published
on the Coalition Provisional Authoritys website. Sectarian strife
is contrary to the policy of the real resistance leaders, either the
secularist and Sunni fighters centred on Baghdad and Fallujah or Muqtada
al-Sadrs Shiite Madhi Army, both of which have emphasised
unity in the struggle to defeat the American-lead occupation.
there is a relentless predictability to the terrorist preparations and
atrocities attributed to Zarqawi. In Colin Powells WMD speech
at the UN, Zarqawis training camp (ironically located in the US-protected
Kurdish enclave in Northern Iraq) was best evidence of a link between
Saddam Hussein and al-Qaeda, The Berg beheading came to George Bushs
aid just as the Abu Ghraib scandal broke; the Sun-Il job was perfectly
timed to harden the Korean Governments resolve to send more troops
of a guilt-driven confession by the perpetrators, it is in the nature
of black operations that the truth can never be established with certainty,
but history cautions us to distrust the official line, and to ask who
