  • Karl Rove, rogue government, BenghaziGate, PetraeusGate

Index of terms
Websites reporting on Benghazi attack debacle as part of Neocon / Zionist soft coup, 'October Surprise' against Obama.
Websites reporting that the Broadwell / Kelley affairs as the 'October Surprise' and covering up connections to Benghazigate out-of-control soft coup attempt
Conclusions
Ultimately, the whole affair is about weapons, Libya, and Syria / Iran regime change, and a proxy war with Russia.
The Benghazi attack was executed by the Green Resistance. The Sept 11 date was merely conincidental.
The attacked US 'consulate' was a CIA operation with a State Dept. cover.
Broadwell's claim that the Benghazi attack was centered on the CIA safehouse, which she insists was housing detainees.
Was Broadwell part of a honeytrap?
An unprecedented amount (20?) of top military leaders were purged in connection to these events. 
The Broadwell / Kelley 'affairs' were just smokescreens to hide turf wars between elite factions of US govt.
al Qaeda is a CIA asset and part of the smokescreen.
Obama administration knew about Broadwell  affair well before the election.  Did they blackmail Petraeus?
Obama administration knew immediately that the 'Innocence of Muslims' film issue was inconsequential.
Romney, Rove and Netanyahu cooked up a futile 'October Surprise' election plot, but it was irrelevant.
The GOP lost the election because they (leadership) are serial racists and alienated everyone other than white racist men.
Susan Rice is a Brzezinski / Albright / Trilateral Commission asset.
The turf gang wars are mainly the Brzezinski Globalists vs. the Neocon / Zionists (who are losing this round).
The Main Stream Media are predictably serving their masters in these events.
The FBI initiated the Petraeus affair investigation in Feb 2012.  Obama is lying about not knowing until after the election.

  • Global Research A secret affair with the CIA Director is the equivalent of the Honeypot Olympics, and we have to ask: was the remarkably fit Ms. Broadwell a lure? If so, she’s won a Gold Medal.  So who would have an interest in getting rid of Petraeus? Here’s where the Cantor connection comes in. The tip by an anonymous “FBI employee” that wound up in Cantor’s office two weeks ago came through Rep. David Reichert, Republican of Washington state, who has a friend who knows the whistleblower. Cantor then spoke to the whistleblower directly, who put him in touch with FBI Director Mueller.   ...   Cantor is a great friend of Israel, and Petraeus — not so much. The General was attacked, as you’ll recall, by partisans of the Lobby, including Abe Foxman, when he delivered testimony before Congress citing Israel as a strategic liability in the Middle East. As the executor of the new Obamaite policy of sidling up to Islamists, not only in Libya but also in Syria and Egypt, Petraeus was no doubt seen by the Israelis as an enemy to be neutralized.

Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours.” “This afternoon, the President graciously accepted my resignation,” Petraeus said in the letter.

  • PoliticalUSA The conspiracy theories surrounding the Petraeus resignation are running wild on the right. A FoxNews.com story is typical of the right’s obsession with the time of the CIA director’s resignation, “Washington is still reeling from the resignation of General David Petraeus as head of the CIA just days before he was supposed to testify on Capitol Hill about what the CIA knew about the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi on September 11, and when it knew it. The many questions surrounding that scandal-including why the FBI was reading the CIA director’s emails and Petraeus’s mistress’s bizarre claims about a secret prison in the Benghazi CIA annex — just add to the picture of an Obama administration out of control on national security—and the conclusion that someone knowingly put an American ambassador at risk to his life; left him there to die; and then lied about it afterwards.”

  • WMR  November 14-15, 2012 -- Petraeus girlfriend staying around corner from scene of Secret Service agent's death WMR was the first to report on a possible link between the alleged automobile carbon monoxide suicide of President Barack Obama's Secret Service protective detail agent Rafael Prieto and the scandal surrounding former CIA director David Petraeus. Prieto's body was discovered in his car in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood of Washington on the evening of October 27. After it was revealed that the North Carolina driver's license of Petraeus's paramour, Army Reserve Lt. Col. Paula Broadwell, was found by a jogger in Rock Creek Park in northwest Washington, DC, local DC reporters discovered that Broadwell was staying at the seven-bedroom, $2 million home of her brother, Stephen Kranz, located in the at 1841 Park Road NW, Washington in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood. Kranz bought the home with Carolynn Lafrate, a lawyer who founded Industry Sales Tax Solutions, LLC (ISTS), which bills itself as "a company specializing in providing state and local tax training and publications to a variety of industries including the software and computer services industry." Lafrate previously worked in state and local tax practice for the "Big Four" public accounting firms. The unidentified jogger turned in the license to the Maryland-National Capital Park Police. There was no information on where the license was found or when it went missing. However, Broadwell's brother's home is in the District of Columbia and the Maryland-National Park Police only have jurisdiction for the Maryland portion of Rock Creek Park, which is part of the National Park Service. Kranz's home, between 18th and 19th Streets, is virtually around the corner from the 19th and Kenyon location of the home that Prieto shared with another Secret Service agent. Walking west on Park Road on Park, one comes to 19th Street. Walking two blocks, past Lamont and Kilbourne Streets, one arrives at 19th and Kenyon, the scene where Obama's Secret Service agent was found. Prior to being assigned to Obama's detail, Prieto was assigned to the White Plains Secret Service office where he guarded former President Bill Clinton. Prieto, who was married, was under investigation for an extramarital affair with a Mexican woman. The charges against Prieto stemmed from the scandal involving members of the Secret Service and other White House staff at last April's Summit of the Americas in Cartagena, Colombia. WMR, which was the first to break the story of Prieto's death, was also told that Washington Metropolitan Police took photographs of homes across the street from the alley location where Prieto's body was discovered in a car. The police crime scene also extended one block west to Kenyon and Adams Mill Road, which adjoins Rock Creek Park where Broadwell's license was found by the jogger. Ironically, Rock Creek Park was where former Representative Gary Condit's girlfriend Chandra Levy was last thought to have been before she disappeared on May 1, 2001. A year later after an extensive search, Levy's remains were discovered in heavy brush between Broad Branch, Ridge, and Grant Roads in Rock Creek Park. Prieto's death went officially unreported for several days with the first official news reports dated November 1. WMR reported the death on October 28 but without the name of the agent that was being withheld by our District of Columbia source. October 27 is the same day that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) said he first heard about Petraeus's affair from Representative Dave Reichert (R-WA). Reichert heard about the affair from an FBI "source" who was in contact with Jill Kelley, a Petraeus friend in Tampa who claimed she was receiving threatening e-mails from Broadwell. An FBI colleague of Reichert's "source" called Cantor, according to an interview Cantor's  Communications director Rory Cooper gave to the Associated Press. It has also been revealed that there is an unusual foreign connection to Jill Kelley. The Lebanese-American MacDill Air Force base "socialite" is also the honorary counsel for the Republic of Korea in Tampa. Kelley attempted to claim diplomatic community in an attempt to convince Tampa police to move inquisitive reporters away from her $1.5 million mansion on exclusive Bayshore Drive. Kelley claims her honorary counsel status, awarded last April, was the result of her "connections." Marine Corps General John Allen, the Commander of the International Security Force for Afghanistan and the designated next Supreme Allied Commander of NATO, served in Korea, as did Petraeus. Allen is being investigated for 20,000-30,000 e-mails he allegedly exchanged with Kelley. It has also been revealed that Kelley's twin sister, Natalie Khawam's ex-husband is Grayson Wolfe, who served on the staff of Jerry Bremer's Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq and was responsible for awarding contracts for the oil industry and other development projects. Wolfe also worked for the U.S. Export-Import Bank and was a registered lobbyist with the firm Fleischman and Walsh. The firm lobbied the Federal Communications Commission on behalf of the National Cable and Telecommunications Association, Cellular Telecommunications and Internet Association, SBC Communications, AOL, and Verizon.  Other clients have included the health care industry, the Electronic Warfare Association (EWA) Information & Infrastructure Technologies, FAA Managers' Association, Continental Airlines, Midway Airlines, Association of American Railroads, Sabre Group (travel industry, airline reservations), Orbitz, TRW Civil Systems, Homeland Security Information Sharing and Analysis Center for the Water Industry, City of Port St. Lucie, Florida, and Cuyahoga County, Ohio. Wolfe's father is reportedly ex-U.S. Army and Special Operations officer Paul G. Wolfe. The elder Wolfe is Program Director for Critical Infrastructure Protection at EWA Information  Infrastructure Technologies, Inc. On April 17, 2002, he spoke to a conference, sponsored by the right-wing Lexington Institute at the Longworth House Office Building, on the security threats posed by public interest groups that raised "bogus" health scares about genetically-modified foods and plastic medical body inserts. Joining him on the panel were Senator James Inhofe (R-OK), a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee and spokesmen from the right-wing Hudson Institute and Competitive Enterprise Institute. In 2002, Wolfe joined  an "impartial" fact-finding team from the neo-conservative and pro-Israeli Foundation for the Defense of Democracies (FDD), headed by Israeli cipher Clifford May, that traveled to the West Bank to investigate the Israeli Defense Force massacre of Palestinian civilians in Jenin. The FDD team that consisted of the late Congressman Jack Kemp, Representative Brad Sherman (D-CA), and publisher Steve Forbes determined that the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNWRA) and International Red Cross were anti-Semitic and that their reports on the Jenin massacre was biased. The elder Wolfe also serves as the program director for the Department of Homeland Security's Surface Transportation Information Sharing and Analysis Center (ISAC) headquartered in Herndon, Virginia. It is also being reported that Rhode Island Democratic Party fundraiser Gerald Harrington, founder of the Capitol City Group, Ltd., loaned Khawam $300,000 according to bankruptcy papers filed last April. Moreover, the loan was unsecured. Khawam, according to The New York Post, mentioned her connections to Senators John Kerry (D-MA) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) in her court filings. Capitol City is a lobbying group that represents the health care industry. Harrington was the National Vice Chairman of Finance for Senator John Kerry's 2004 Presidential campaign. Harrington's Capitol City Group partner, Christopher Vitale, served on the staff of Representative Patrick Kennedy (D-RI) from 1993 to 1998. The discovery of Broadwell's license in Rock Creek Park is a mystery. It has been determined that she is hiding out at her brother's house near the park. But why would Broadwell, the most easily-recognized woman in Washington, DC, risk being confronted by the public while jogging in Rock Creek Park. There is the possibility that Broadwell's license was stolen and was placed in the park as a veiled warning for the 40-year old not to talk about details of her affair with Petreaus and her other "connections." Broadwell must be fully aware of what Rock Creek Park and mistresses mean to everyone in Washington, DC: it is the place where Chandra Levy's remains were discovered a year after she disappeared. WMR has previously reported that Levy was murdered because she began telling friends what Condit, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, had told her about the upcoming terrorist attack using passenger airplanes on the United States. Condit insisted that Levy not fly back to California but that she should take Amtrak. The discovery of Khawam's in-laws' lobbying connections to America's airline, communications, electronic warfare, and intelligence industries should make Broadwell stop and think what coded messages about Levy's fate and 9/11 are being sent her way. Of course, the Khawam in-laws also have connections to the thousand pound elephant in the 9/11 room: Israel. And that should focus attention on Cantor, Binyamin Netanyahu's old pal Mitt Romney, and other members of Congress who were hoping for a Jimmy Carter-like October Surprise for Obama arising from the Benghazi diplomatic compound attack. Broadwell's father, Paul Kranz, of Bismarck, North Dakota, has said, "This is about something else entirely, and the truth will come out." Broadwell would do well to heed her dad. And as for professional women who ply themselves to the rich and powerful, Washington, DC was the scene of an escort service that used highly-intelligence women to bed down politicians, Pentagon brass, and diplomats. After going public with her clients' phone list, Pamela Martin & Associates proprietor Deborah Jeane Palfrey was found hanging in her mother's laundry room in Florida. Levy and Palfrey: two names to keep in mind as the Petraeus scandal unfolds.
  • Antiwar  Interestingly, in November of 2006, during her tenure at the Jebsen Center, Broadwell led a group of Fletcher School students on a trip to New York City to meet with then Iranian UN representative Javad Zarif. Both are alumni of the Josef Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver. All this establishes a context that goes far beyond the titillating details of the alleged affair between Petraeus and Broadwell — and this is no doubt what set alarm bells ringing in the intelligence community when it was revealed. Is there really any need to point out the uses of the “honeypot” in intelligence-gathering and other covert activities regularly engaged in by spooks of all nations? FromMata Hari to the Mossad agent who lured Israeli nuclear scientist Mordecahi Vanunu, sex is a time-honored weapon in the war of spy-vs-spy. A secret affair with the CIA Director is the equivalent of the Honeypot Olympics, and we have to ask: was the remarkably fit Ms. Broadwell a lure? If so, she’s won a Gold Medal. Broadwell’s actions — sending emails that were bound to be traced back to her — appear to make little sense on the surface. But if the goal of luring a 60-year-old geezer into an affair with a much younger woman was to expose him, and get him fired, then surely her antics succeeded in accomplishing that goal. So who would have an interest in getting rid of Petraeus? Here’s where the Cantor connection comes in. The tip by an anonymous “FBI employee” that wound up in Cantor’s office two weeks ago came through Rep. David Reichert, Republican of Washington state, who has a friend who knows the whistleblower. Cantor then spoke to the whistleblower directly, who put him in touch with FBI Director Mueller. Cantor is a great friend of Israel, and Petraeus — not so much. The General was attacked, as you’ll recall, by partisans of the Lobby, including Abe Foxman, when he delivered testimony before Congress citing Israel as a strategic liability in the Middle East. As the executor of the new Obamaite policy of sidling up to Islamists, not only in Libya but also in Syria and Egypt, Petraeus was no doubt seen by the Israelis as an enemy to be neutralized. Broadwell’s affiliation with the Jebsen Center, and the Center’s connection to the neoconservative network, sets the scene: a young, attractive woman with impeccable national security credentials throws herself at Petraeus, and he takes the bait. Whether she’s been recruited by a foreign intelligence agency at this point or not is irrelevant: he’s already put himself in a vulnerable position, and there are any number of actors on the international stage more than willing to press their advantage. Will we ever know the full story? At this point, the story is so hot that it may burn the cover story — “it’s all about sex” — right off the wrapper. Because there’s more — a lot more — here than meets the eye. When Cantor pledged to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that he and his fellow Republicans “will serve as a check on the administration” in regard to the President’s policy toward Israel, he was clearly aligning himself with a foreign leader against American interests as perceived by the White House. But would he really go this far — deliberately taking down a key figure, one beloved by Republicans, in order to keep his promise to Netanyahu? Stay tuned to this space, because this story is moving fast…. Update: This morning 11/12/12] the New York Times reports: “F.B.I. agents interviewed Ms. Broadwell for the first time the week of Oct. 21, and she acknowledged the affair, a government official briefed on the matter said. She also voluntarily gave the agency her computer. In a search, the agents discovered several classified documents, which raised the additional question of whether Mr. Petraeus had given them to her. She said that he had not. Agents interviewed Mr. Petraeus the following week. He also admitted to the affair but said he had not given any classified documents to her. The agents then interviewed Ms. Broadwell again on Friday, Nov. 2, the official said.” Bingo!

  • Steve Pieczenik  THE THIRD SOFT MILITARY COUP General Petraeus, DCI, Sacked From CIA for Extramarital Affair: Why now? Why so precipitously? What Does This Have To Do With The Cover-up On Benghazi? Please excuse the following literary introductions to the aforementioned question? It’s important to understand the past history of the answer to Petraeus sudden dismissal and the obfuscation surrounding the Benghazi Affair. Dear readers think of two books written fifty years ago—Advice & Consent 1962] and Seven Days In May 1964]. Oh by the way, please add two more books, entitled, Maximum Vigilance and State Of Emergency written by yours truly, Dr Steve Pieczenik, almost twenty years ago.- What do these four books have in common? They all refer to an impending military coup against a weak or corrupt President at a time when POTUS appears to be politically most vulnerable—before an election or during a treaty negotiations when major concessions are being made. I would like to summarize my point about Petraeus and Bengazhi as the “Third Soft Military Coup.” What do I mean by a ‘soft coup’? A ‘soft coup’ is an attempt by the US military and other organizations within the US government to change the present POTUS without any appearance of tanks, military personnel in the streets of America, or imposition of dictatorial powers that would inform the American public that in fact there had been a change of the “democratic’ nature of the republic. Please remember, my dear readers, that a republic simply means a nation-state with representation by elected intermediaries like legislators, etc. You must recall that a republic suis generis is not by nature a democracy.  more
  • Antiwar  But the scandal surrounding both the literal and figurative Petraeus Affair continues to grow with or without him, and has even has a potential Benghazi link now, with the discovery that Petraeus’s girlfriend Paula Broadwell recently made a claim that the Benghazi attack was centered not on the consulate but on the CIA safehouse, which she insists was housing detainees. The CIA denies this, but a claim that was totally ignored at the time because there was no reason to take Broadwell’s word for it, is getting a lot more attention now that it is known she had classified documents on her personal computer and could well have had inside access on the CIA’s info on the attack. Broadwell’s classified data access is also having fallout beyond Petraeus now, witheyes turning on Attorney General Eric Holder, who knew about the investigation for months but reportedly kept it a secret until the end of the November 6 election, at which time he told DNI James Clapper, who advised Petraeus to resign.  more   And that could be the tip of the iceberg. If Broadwell’s claims about the CIA holding detainees in Benghazi also turns out to be true, that whole separate scandal is potentially far bigger, as keeping that secret, along with the administration’s already shaky history of truth-telling on Benghazi, could suggest there really was a cover-up in the wake of the attack on the consulate, that the Obama Administration lied about ending the use of CIA black sites, and got their own ambassador killed in doing so.
  • BoingBoing  The mistress of former CIA Director David Petraeus publicly discussed sensitive and previously unknown details about the assault on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.   ...   In an October 26 alumni symposium at the University of Denver, Paula Broadwell said that the CIA annex at the Benghazi consulate came under assault on Sept. 11 because it had earlier “taken a couple of Libyan militia members prisoner and they think the attack on the consulate was an effort to try to get these prisoners back. It’s still being vetted.” (That information was not part of the CIA’s timeline of the Benghazi assault, and Eli Lake of the Daily Beast reports that the CIA has denied any such detention.) “I don’t know if a lot of you have heard this,” Broadwell prefaced her remarks by saying.    ...   It was a surprising disclosure, given the deep classification of the CIA’s detention policies — and the enormous political stakes surrounding the Benghazi assault. But in many ways, it was only natural for Broadwell, given her evolution from Petraeus protegee to biographer to paramour and unofficial spokesperson.    ...   Additional questions I'd like to understand: if Petraeus didn't commit a crime, and there was no policy violation, why was he booted out—and in such dramatic fashion?

  • EUTimes  The Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) is reporting today that President Barack Obama has accelerated the purge of US Military officers involved in a coup against his regime by the “firing in disgrace” of former Four-Star Army General and current Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) David Petraeus first photo left] yesterday. According to this report, after his refusal to meet at the White House with Obama this past week, US Federal Forces loyal to the President stopped General Petraeus’ vehicle in DuPont Circle in Washington D.C. yesterday (Friday) morning whereupon a short gun battle ensued (Washington D.C. police are reporting this incident as an attempted robbery). General Petraeus was, then, apprehended, brought before Obama and forced to resign in disgrace over his supposedly admitting to an extramarital affair. General Petraeus’s toppling follows similar attacks by the Obama regime in the past 3 weeks that has seen the unprecedented ouster of many top US Military leaders including Rear Admiral Charles M. Gaouette, US Army General Carter Ham, Brigadier General Jeffery A. Sinclair, and US Navy Commander Joseph E. Darlak, all of whom we had previously reported on in our reports “Obama Coup Plot Slams Into Russia” and “Obama Fires Top Admiral As Coup Plot Fears Grows.” GRU analysts in this report say that Obama’s moves against his rebellious military most closely resembles those actions taken by President Franklin Roosevelt in 1933 against those involved in what is now referred to as “The Business Plot” engineered by wealthy American businessmen who were plotting to create a fascist veterans’ organization and use it in a coup d’état to overthrow the US government.    ...    Under great pressure to jail and charge with treason many top US Military officers after the failed 1933 coup attempt, this report says, Roosevelt, instead, opted to simply oust those Generals and other high-ranking officers in order to spare his country the turmoil such a revelation would cause among the American people. Most ominous, however, in this report is it, likewise, comparing Obama’s ouster of General Petraeus to the 1961 firing of CIA Director Allen Dulles (1893-1969) by President John F. Kennedy (1917-1963). Though never proven, it is believed by many that Dulles ordered the assassination of Kennedy after a cryptic assassination directive was found in a leaked document in 2009, and in what can only be termed as ironic, Dulles was a central member of the Warren Commission investigation into Kennedy’s assassination that blamed this shocking murder on a “lone gunman.” Unbeknownst to General Petraeus, or the other coup-plotters, this report continues, Obama had ordered the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to begin conducting covert human and electronic surveillance against hundreds of US Military officers when this coup plot was discovered. The coups “master plan”, this GRU report says, was for US Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney to be assassinated just prior to the 6 November election whereupon General Petraeus would become the Republican candidate under their party’s rules allowing him to be put into Romney’s place by a majority of State Representatives as allowed under RNC party rules. If such a scenario were allowed to occur, this report continues, General Petraeus would have most certainly became the next President of The United States due to his unprecedented popularity with the American people. Important to note is that the only US mainstream media outlet attempting to report on this coup attempt was the magazine GQ, who in an article this past week, written by Marc Ambinder, detailed the massive security forces ordered by Obama to be put around both himself and Romney during the final weeks of the election and the many assassination attempts that were, likewise, foiled. Unfortunately for Ambinder, however, are the many attacks he is currently undergoing for his daring to “lift the lid” on these coup plots and the pressure he’s under to release the sources for his information. In a response to these attacks against him via Twitter about his sources Ambinder cryptically stated, “There was that guy who shot at the White House from across the ellipse, and then the soldiers arrested for plotting the assassination of the president and others.” This GRU report further states that Obama had his “hand forced” this week when General Petraeus ordered the CIA to begin releasing information damaging to his regime, including a timeline on the Benghazi Libya attack that conflicted with the White House, and previously kept secret information on an American drone fired upon by Iran in the week prior to the election.    ...   Should the true stories about either, or both, of these events been made known to the American people prior to the election, this report says, Obama could have been defeated. However, due to the complicity of the propaganda US media the full facts regarding them have yet to become fully known. General Petraeus’s main downfall, this report says, was due to emails obtained by the FBI written by his loyal confidant and biographer Paula Broadwell first photo left] detailing “critical elements” of this coup-plot. Most important to note about the FBI’s obtaining of these emails, however, was that they were not recovered from Broadwell, but were, instead, obtained from the Russian Defense Ministry, and as we had previously reported on, and led to President Putin’s firing of Defense Minster Anatoly Serdyukov this past week. To the most important context surrounding this historic battle between an American President and the US Military we had previously detailed in our 22 July report titled “Obama Plan To Shatter “Permanent War Economy” Panics Global Elites”, and which the first move to do so was made by Obama within hours of his winning his reelection when he notified the United Nations that The United States would now back an international treaty to regulate the $70 billion global conventional arms trade. As Obama has now become only the second US President in over half a century, since Kennedy, to battle against the American Military-Industrial-Complex, the outcome is far from certain, this GRU report conclusion warns, as the US Military and their defense allies show no signs of surrendering.
  • Wikipedia Chandra Levy Chandra Ann Levy (April 14, 1977 – c. May 1, 2001) was an American intern at the Federal Bureau of Prisons in Washington, D.C., who disappeared in May 2001. She was presumed murdered after her skeletal remains were found in Rock Creek Park in May 2002. The case attracted attention from the American news media for years. The investigation led to media allegations of an affair with married, and then-U.S. Representative, Gary Condit, a five-term Democrat representing California's 18th congressional district and a senior member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Condit was never named a suspect by police and was eventually cleared of involvement. However, the cloud of suspicion raised by the intense media focus on the missing intern and the later revelation of the affair led to his loss in his 2002 re-election campaign. The circumstances surrounding Levy's death were unclear for eight years. On March 3, 2009, D.C. authorities obtained a warrant to arrest Ingmar Guandique, an illegal immigrant from El Salvador who had already been convicted of assaulting two other women in Rock Creek Park around the time of Levy's disappearance. Prosecutors stated that Guandique had attacked and tied up Levy in a remote area of the park and left her to die of dehydration or exposure. In November 2010, Guandique was convicted of murdering Levy; he was sentenced in February 2011 to 60 years in prison.
  • DigitalJournal  Op-Ed: Benghazi attack — The October surprise that backfired LIKE THIS ARTICLE18 Eric By Eric Morales Nov 17, 2012 in World 13 comments  + The Romney campaign was banking on the Benghazi attack making Obama the next Jimmy Carter, however it has instead blown up in the face of the American right - only problem is, they haven't realized that yet. Conservatives thought the September 11th attack on the American consulate in Benghazi was the little engine that could. President Obama was ahead in a majority of polls in swing states, and he was leading former Governor Mitt Romney hands down. Then came reports that the consulate was under attack, after violent protests over a derisive movie entitled Innocence of Muslims which insulted the Prophet Muhammad and decent minded people the world over. Then the news came that Ambassador Stevens were killed along with two CIA security contractors and an IT specialist. The Romney campaign wasted no time issuing a statement even while the embassy staff was still in harms way. The media seemed surprised at their gung ho attitude on the attacks, why was the campaign using this moment of tragedy on the anniversary of another tragedy to attack their opponent, President Obama? This was their plan. This was their moment. The Reagan revolution was getting a sequel. The Stand Down Michael Morell, the Acting CIA Director testified to the Senate that the CIA in Libya never asked for help. This is important in light of what we already know about the attacks. According to the Daily Beast, two hours after the attack on the consulate began Defense Secretary Leon Panetta had multiple plans in place to respond. The plans included sending in a Fleet Anti-terrorism Security Team (FAST) from Rota, Spain. More plans included two special forces units to deploy to Libya, one from Italy and another from the United States. However the CIA never requested the help, and neither did the State Department. It's interesting to note who was in charge here. The Director of the CIA at the time as we all know was General David Petraeus. The same David Petraeus who served in George W. Bush's war in Iraq, led that war. A Republican who rose to prominence when the Neo-Conservative movement was in power. The same Neo-Conservative movement seeking to return to power under Governor Romney. You'll remember seeing Dan Senor on the Romney campaign, and talk of John Bolton being in the Romney administration. Patrick F. Kennedy is the Under Secretary for Management at the State Department. His job in part is overseeing the physical property of the State Department, as well as Diplomatic Security. He is also no fan of Barack Obama, he called the then candidate Obama's foreign speech in Germany partisan political activity and forbade his staff from attending, he too was appointed by the Bush administration. Of course their are numerous other Neo-Conservative left overs at both the CIA and the State Department, enough to ensure that an attack on the Benghazi consulate looks bad on their political rival boss - the President. During opportunistic hearings on the Benghazi attack Congressman Jason Chaffetz, a Mormon like Mitt Romney, as well as Congressman Darrell Issa, who has tried to dig up something to go after President Obama with since he was inaugurated, exposed a secret CIA base near the consulate. The question I ask, why did the officers at this CIA base not respond? They were most definitely armed since they were serving in a war zone, what were they doing? The answer nothing, just as the upper echelons of the CIA and State Department refused assistance, and allowed the attack on the Benghazi attack to go on unopposed, the CIA team in Benghazi stood down. The Movie It wasn't a few hours after the attacks in Benghazi, that Conservative talking points began floating around that the Obama administration once again apologized to the Muslim world, and that they should have defended the Innocence of Muslim's film, as free speech. How nice, if the film had portrayed Jesus Christ, or Ronald Reagan would the far right had had the same reaction, I think not. But, lets look at who is behind this film, Terry Jones was a vocal supporter of the film which enraged the world and provided an initial casus belli for the Benghazi attack. It was Jones whom conservatives defended when he set out to burn the Quran. It was Pamela Gellar who solicited funds for the film, she is linked by degrees of separation right back to the Romney campaign and the Neo-Conservative lobby through John Bolton who wrote the forward to her book, The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration's War on America. Beside being a contributor to conservative magazine Human Events Ms. Gellar is also a proponent of the far-rights continued assertion that radical, spooky Muslims are trying to make America a Muslim state subject to Sharia law. The movie was not the issue however, it was only the red herring which distracted you from the fact that the mainly Neo-Conservative CIA stood down and allowed the attack to occur to blame the Obama administration. The Culprit Abu Sufian Ibrahim Ahmed Hamuda Bin Qumu is a former prisoner of Guantanamo Bay detention camps, in Cuba who was transferred to Libyan custody in 2007. It was first reported that Qumu may have been behind the consulate attack by Fox News. However that was conveniently denied by national security officials, of course they would not admit that a former detainee of the United States had killed an American Ambassador after being released by the Bush administration, especially if this same former detainee Bin Qumu, was doing the bidding of the CIA. My conclusion for those who think the world is black and white, that the good guys, are really the good guys, and the bad guys are just as bad as our hero figures in leadership say they are, is far fetched. However in light of the Gulf of Tonkin or the Lavon affair it is not that sordid, just the norm. It is my belief that in the very least the Benghazi attack was allowed to occur. Hence the inexplicable "do nothing" response by the CIA, in order to make the Obama administration look weak and soft on terrorism. Once again the strong, cowboyish Republican party could paint themselves as tough on terror and ride in and be the John Wayne figure snatching up the damsel in distress, saving the day. Neo-Conservatives are all too eager to relive the days after 9/11 when the country was hawkish and George W. Bush was popular and war as American as apple pie. So Why Didn't It Work General Petraeus has a thing for brunettes. I believe that it is no coincidence in light of all that I have outlined here concerning the CIA, that David Petraeus has been sacked as CIA Director. Is it possible that the leaks concerning the inaction of the CIA in the early days of the Benghazi attack came from Paula Broadwell? After all the National Security Agency was outed in 2006 for spying on journalists who were exposing government secrets. One of them being Vernon Loeb, why is he important, well he is only Paula Broadwell's co-author on All In: The Education of General David Petraeus. I do not think it is merely coincidental that now everyone is concerned whether Paula Broadwell was accessing Petraeus personal data, in light of the Benghazi attack, and its fall out. The right wing's clueless thinking that they can create their own facts, concerning Obama calling Benghazi a terrorist attack did not help. Regardless this is not over and the right wing will not give up its fight to make the Benghazi issue their main weapon to attack Obama, it has gone from an October surprise issue to one to use for Watergate style hearings.

  • Examiner Retired Four-Star Admiral James “Ace” Lyons, one of the guests on “Lou Dobbs Tonight”this past Wednesday evening, suggests the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi, Libya on September 11 was the result of a bungled abduction attempt. Admiral Lyons, whose career in the United States (U.S.) Navy was capped by two years of service as the Commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet from 1985 to 1987, thinks this kidnapping was planned to be the first stage of an international prisoner exchange. This transfer of prisoners would have ensured the release of Omar Abdel Rahman, the “Blind Sheik” convicted of orchestrating the World Trade Center Bombing in 1993. View slideshow: Some sources suggest Benghazi attack was a bungled abduction attempt Lyons' analysis of the evidence led him to the failed kidnapping conclusion Admiral James Lyons suggests the Obama administration intentionally lessened the levels of security at the consulate compound in Benghazi in the weeks leading up to the attack. This plan should have worked to reduce the possibility of resistance as the Ansar al-Sharia terrorist organization captured Chris Stevens, the American Ambassador to Libya. According to information obtained by Fox News, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, both former U.S. Navy Seals, ignored orders to "stand down" and fought vigorously for hours in their attempt to defend the compound from the impending attack. Ultimately, these armed assaults on the U.S. Consulate and CIA annex claimed the life of four Americans--Ambassador Chris Stevens, former U.S. Navy Seals Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, and State Department information manager Sean Smith. Failed kidnapping attempt theory proposed by Western Center for Journalism In October 2012, the Western Center for Journalism released two separate articles suggesting the killing of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in the Benghazi attack was the result of a failed kidnapping attempt aborted by the complicit terrorists when they encountered the unexpected armed resistance at the U.S. Consulate. On October 20, Kris Zane published the center’s initial article “Muslim Brotherhood Behind Benghazi Attack with Link to Obama.” Zane suggests the “Innocence of Muslims” video was nothing more than a scapegoat the Obama administration utilized to distract the public from the incriminating information being gathered from the investigations into the attack at Benghazi, Libya. Within 24 hours of the incident, ground intelligence had already linked the assault on the compound to Mohammed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood president of Egypt. Therefore, the Obama administration had already determined by September 12 the online video had absolutely nothing to do with the armed assault on the American Consulate and CIA annex. Later in the article, Zane cites an anonymous source from inside the White House that explained the Benghazi debacle had been constructed in order to deliver an “October surprise for Obama.” The administration’s plan was to abduct Ambassador Stevens to ensure the release of Abdel Rahman would be more “palatable to the American people.” By winning the release of Stevens, Obama would have boosted his mediocre approval ratings just in time for Election Day, and Mohammed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood could have secured the freedom of their beloved “Blind Sheik.” On October 23, news networks received and released emails confirming that all vital intelligence agencies had been informed of the severity of the attack within two hours of the confrontation. These same communications had also been forwarded to the White House Situation Room. On October 25, Kris Zane published his second article on the incident “Obama Linked to Benghazi Attack.” This submission also included a video detailing the facts and research Zane had gathered to support his conclusion that this botched abduction attempt was the real reason behind the deadly Benghazi attack. Judge Mukasey links Obama to release of sheik Almost a month before the Western Center for Journalism shared its conclusions in regards to the Benghazi attack, the Wall Street Journal had published an article on September 24, 2012 from Judge Michael Mukasey entitled “Will Obama Free the Blind Sheik?” In his submission, Mukasey questioned the wisdom of releasing this “poisonously influential Islamic Cleric” Omar Abdel Rahman back to his homeland. Upon Rahman’s release to Egypt, Judge Mukasey concluded the sheik would incite additional domestic and international acts of terror against Americans. Judge Mukasey, who presided over Abdel Rahman’s trial in 1995, had sentenced the sheik to life in prison upon his conviction for the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing, numerous plots to destroy other landmarks in New York City, and conspiring to assassinate Hosni Mubarak, the President of Egypt. According to Mukasey, Rahman’s “legacy” as an “totemic figure” for Islamic militants originated in 1981, when his "pronouncements" were used by Egyptian soldiers to justify their assassination of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat. Mukasey informs his readers of the June 2012 meeting at the White House when Hani Nour Eldin urged that Abdel Rahman be transferred to Egypt. Questions immediately arose as to how Eldin, who had just completed an 11 year sentence for terrorism charges and was also a professed member of a designated terrorist organization, could have even been granted a visa to enter the U.S., much less secure a visit to the White House. After an adamant series of interrogations from Congress, Homeland Security official Nelson Peacock admitted that while the issuance of Eldin’s visa failed to raise “warning flags,” regulations would have required him to receive “waiver from someone in authority” for admittance to the U.S. Sources suggest Clinton’s documents confirm orders for additional security Well-renowned writer Ed Klein appeared as a guest on The Blaze TV’s “Wilkow!” on October 24 to discuss the existence of documents confirming Clinton ordered additional security for the compound in Benghazi, Libya prior to the attack on September 11 2012. Host Andrew Wilkow spoke with Klein, who reported “legal counsel” for the Clintons had informed him of Bill and Hillary’s numerous heated discussions in recent weeks regarding the release of these papers. Ed Klein insisted these communications written by Hillary Clinton had ordered additional security to be provided in Benghazi, and Obama blatantly refused her request. These documents could be used to further support the rampant suspicions Obama had ulterior motives for leaving the American outpost virtually unguarded from outside aggressors. Bill Clinton tried to convince Hillary to go forward with her written requests so she would be exonerated from any wrong-doing in the attack. Hillary refused to disclose the orders for additional security out of fear she would be labeled as a "betrayer" of the Democratic Party. This "betrayal" would have eliminated her chance to run for president in 2016. It is worth noting that within days of Obama’s reelection, Hillary Clinton resigned from her cabinet position as Secretary of State. This resignation infers there is truth to the widely reported rumors that the relationship between the Clintons and Obama has always been "tense at best." Congress and the media question timing of General Petraeus’ resignation Further confounding analysts trying to determine what really happened in Benghazi on the night of September 11 are the recent revelations about General David Petraeus’ affair with his Biographer Paula Broadwell. General Petraeus publicly stated this affair with his biographer was the reason he submitted his resignation. News of this sex scandal surfaced less than a week after Election Day, when a slim majority of American voters had re-elected Barack Obama as President of the United States. Reports indicate the FBI initiated an investigation over the summer regarding General Petraeus’ extramarital affair and the potential related threats to national security. However, the agency never alerted Congress of the potential compromise of confidential information. The Obama administration has also insisted it was never notified by the FBI of the pending investigation prior to the election. However, many critics now conclude the White House intentionally delayed the announcement of Petraeus’ resignation to avoid any impact on Obama’s reelection bid. Tracking down the truths behind the Benghazi attack will take time and tenacity The circumstantial evidence increasingly supports the various sources currently suggesting the attacks on the U.S. Consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya was in fact an aborted abduction attempt resulting in the murder of four Americans. However, tracking down the truth will take time and tenacity for all of the investigators involved in the hunt for honest answers. Voters can play a pivotal role in ensuring the actual account of events will be released by repeatedly contacting local and national media sources, as well as their elected congressional representatives. It is imperative the American electorate demand honesty, transparency, and accountability in the investigation of the attack that lead the death of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya. 
  • Global Research article by Finian Cunningham and Mark Robertson (Green Resistance) The NATO powers and the bureaucrats they installed in Libya want you to think that all 5.6 million Libyans are happy that NATO and its proxy terrorists destroyed Libya, a country which under Gaddafi had the highest standard of living in Africa. They want you to think that NATO brought “freedom and democracy” to Libya, not chaos and death. They want you to think that there is no Green Resistance to the NATO imperialists or NATO’s Islamist allies in Benghazi.  In reality, the Resistance has been increasingly active since shortly after the murder of Muammar Gaddafi in October 2011, as will be shown below. They strike any NATO target they can, and they execute key Libyans who betrayed Gaddafi and sided with NATO. The Benghazi incident was merely their latest blow against what they see as NATO’s illegal occupation of their country. Everyone in Libya knows about the Green Resistance, whose members are called “Tahloob” (Arabic for “Gaddafi loyalists”). The denial only happens outside of Libya, by the NATO powers and their dutiful Western mainstream media. Because of this denial, and because most of the world’s people have forgotten about Libya, the internet is filled with blind guesses, unfounded claims, and ridiculous counterclaims regarding the Benghazi incident last week in which US Ambassador Christopher Stevens and at least three other American personnel were killed. And the NATO lie factory is operating at full blast.  CLAIMS, COUNTER-CLAIMS AND DISINFORMATION The Obama regime says “protesters” irate over an anti-Islam video did it. The NATO-installed bureaucrats in Libya say that “foreign extremists” did it. US Congressmen say “Al Qaeda did it”. So does CNN, as well as the alternative media web site Prison Planet, which denounces any reference to the Green Resistance as “absurd”. (1) Media outlets, such as the UK Guardian, say “an organized terror network did it”. Turkey’s government says “Syria’s Assad did it”. Israel says “Hezbollah did it”. The Sunni monarchs of the Gulf Cooperation Council oil sheikdoms say “Iran did it”. Even reputable alternative media writers and progressive bloggers have attributed the attack to “the Benghazi Islamists”, and that this is “blowback from imperialism”. Wikileaks says the attack happened because the US had backed Britain’s threat to storm the Ecuadorian embassy in London and remove Julian Assange. (2) Some media outlets claim that “Al Qaeda” carried out the attack in revenge for the supposed death in Pakistan (by US drone strike on 4 June 2012) of Libyan-born Abu Yahya Al Libi (aka Hassan Mohammed Qaid) who was supposedly a key aide to Osama bin Laden, and was supposedly the “number two man” in Al Qaeda. This claim is nonsense, since Al Qaeda has been a group of mercenaries employed by Washington and London since 1980. President Reagan called them “heroes” and “freedom fighters”. The US and Britain sends its Al Qaeda mercenaries to the Balkans, Libya, Syria, Chechnya, Somalia, Sudan, and other places that NATO wants to infiltrate, destroy or destabilize. NATO pays Ayman Al Zawahiri, the so-called leader of the Al Qaeda mercenaries, to advance NATO imperialism by recording videos and audio-tapes; over 60 of them so far. Zawahiri repeatedly called for the death of Gaddafi, and now he repeatedly calls for the death of Syria’s President Bashar Al Assad. He also calls for Pakistanis to support the Taliban, in order to make the world think the Taliban still exists. He sometimes records in English, and his true identity and whereabouts are a NATO secret. On 11 September 2012, in commemoration of 9/11, he released a video that eulogized Abu Yahya Al Libi, the one supposedly killed by a US drone in June. This “eulogy” had nothing to do with the Benghazi incident, which happened later that night on Tuesday 11 September. Some claim that Salafists carried out the fatal attack on the US premises. This is more nonsense, since Salafists are NATO allies.  Salafists and Wahhabists connote a strict, literalist, and puritanical approach to Islam. They are mainly associated with Saudi Arabia’s feudal style of Islam, and they were allied with NATO against Gaddafi.  Now they are allied with NATO against Assad, Iran, Hezbollah, and Shiites generally. An example of Salafists in Libya is the Ansar Al Sharia – a blanket term for various militias that want to apply strict Sharia law in Libya. Its members are pro-NATO and anti-Green Resistance. They had no reason to attack the US government site in Benghazi which had been instrumental in galvanizing the Islamist insurgency to topple the Gaddafi government, beginning at least from March 2011 and under the supervision of the late Christopher Stevens. Stevens was Washington’s point man in Benghazi and is known to have cultivated strong ties with the Islamists. In short, it does not make sense that such Benghazi contacts would have wanted or have been motivated to kill their American paymaster. The most obvious explanation is that cadres – the Green Resistance loyal to Gaddafi and in opposition to the NATO-imposed regime carried out the attack. NATO and its Libyan quislings don’t want to admit this subversive reality. The fact of a resistance – a potent and growing resistance at that – has to be denied, erased from the record. TIMING It was a mere coincidence that the Benghazi attack happened on the eleventh anniversary of 9/11. The Green Resistance was angry that Abdullah Al Senoussi (Gaddafi’s chief of intelligence) had been arrested upon his arrival at Nouakchott airport in Mauritania on 17 March 2012. Then, six days before the Benghazi attack, Mauritania extradited Senoussi to Libya for trial by the NATO-installed bureaucrats. One day before the Benghazi attack, the NATO puppets put two senior Gaddafi loyalists on trial, accusing them of wasting public money by paying $2.7 billion to families of people killed in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. The two Gaddafi loyalists are Abdul Ati Al Obeidi (who had been Gaddafi’s Prime Minister, Foreign Minister, and Head of State) and Mohammed Zwai (former Secretary General of the General People’s Congress – that is, head of the legislature under Gaddafi). Also, Baghdadi Ali Mahmudi had been Secretary of the General People’s Committee (that is, Prime Minister) under Gaddafi, but escaped from Tripoli on 21 August 2011 as NATO-backed terrorists swept into the city. Mahmudi was arrested in Tunisia for illegal border entry and jailed for six months until his charges were overturned on appeal. On 24 June 2012, Tunisia’s Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali (acting on NATO orders) suddenly had Mahmudi re-arrested and sent back to the NATO puppets in Tripoli, who promptly imprisoned Mahmudi. Tunisia’s Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali is pro-NATO, and a friend of American hawkish senators McCain and Lieberman. His re-arrest and extradition of Mahmudi angered Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki, who denounced the extradition as illegal, and it also enraged the Libyan Green Resistance. (3) As for US Ambassador Christopher Stevens, he had promoted Libya’s destruction, having arrived in Benghazi in April 2011 for that purpose, and remained there throughout the NATO seven-month aerial bombardment of Libya. His job was to coordinate the NATO-backed terrorists. After Libya was destroyed, Stevens had used a Tripoli hotel as his base, since the Green Resistance had burned down the US embassy in the capital, Tripoli. When the Resistance tried to kill him with a car bomb outside the hotel, Stevens moved to the villas in Benghazi, a city in the east of the country whose inhabitants tend to be pro-US and which has long been a hotbed of Islamist jihadis, many of them furnishing the ranks of NATO’s Afghan Mujahideen in the 1980s and later Al Qaeda. (4) That was over a year ago. (Stevens formally became Obama’s ambassador to Libya in May 2012.) Stevens was outgoing, and had so underestimated the Green Resistance that he enjoyed jogging in the streets of Benghazi and elsewhere in Libya. (5) Everyone knew that he and his American staff were present. One figure among the pro-NATO terrorists, Ahmed Al Abbar, says of Stevens: “He was loved by everybody  that is, in Benghazi]”. (6) Stevens’ popularity with the Benghazi traitors added to the fury of the Green Resistance when they eventually attacked the US site in Benghazi. Thus, contrary to claims by Western media outlets such as the British Independent, there were no “major security breeches,” and no “mystery” about the attack. All such claims are red herrings designed to distract from the reality of the Green Resistance. THEY ALL ADMITTED THE TRUTH AT FIRST The morning after the Benghazi attack, on 12 September, the NATO puppets unwittingly admitted the truth about the “Tahloob” (Green Resistance), and whined that NATO was not doing enough to help crush it. Libyan Deputy Interior Minister Wanis Al Sharif admitted this in a Benghazi news conference, which was later broadcast on Al Jazeera television. (7) (8) (29) Libya’s Prime Minister Abdurrahim El-Keib also admitted it, as did Libya’s President Mohammed El-Megarif, as well as Ali Aujali, Libya’s Ambassador to Washington, plus Ibrahim Dabbashi, Libya’s ambassador to the UN. All of them said that Gaddafi loyalists had attacked the US site in Benghazi. They would quickly change their change tune under pressure from their NATO masters. Back on 24 August 2012, Time magazine had noted that Gaddafi “still commands silent admiration in many parts of Libya”. The article quoted President El-Magariaf as saying: “We know that Gaddafi loyalists are behind these bombings since the overthrow of Gaddafi]. In the last few months, the security services have intensified their campaign against Bani Walid and Tarhuna.” (9) Bani Walid is a loyalist stronghold whose people held key positions in Gaddafi’s security services. It was also the last city outside of Gaddafi’s birthplace of Sirte to fall to NATO-backed terrorists on 23 January 2012. Magariaf is from Benghazi, and spent 30 years in the US being groomed for the time when NATO would destroy Libya. On 9 August 2012, NATO installed him as Libya’s head of state after an “election”. Magariaf is allied with the Muslim Brotherhood, which is aligned with NATO. The initial admissions of the truth about the Green Resistance were made on the morning after the attack. Within hours, however, all top Libyan officials, acting under NATO orders, changed their tune, merely calling the attackers “foreign extremists”. Magariaf, the president installed by NATO, went to Benghazi three days after the attack, and declared that “Al Qaeda did it”. (10) One bureaucrat who would not adopt the NATO spin was Prime Minister Abdurrahim El-Keib, who continued to insist that Gaddafi loyalists were the perpetrators. Therefore, NATO dismissed him as Libya’s prime minister, and replaced him with Mustafa Abushagur, the day after the Benghazi incident. Abushagur had lived most of his life in the USA, and had always been an enemy of Gaddafi. Like so many other US-installed bureaucrats, he had returned to Benghazi in May 2011 during the NATO-instigated insurgency. Some alternative news outlets acknowledge the truth about the Green Resistance, for example, the Inter Press News Service, which is a non-profit outlet. IPS spoke with armed Gaddafi loyalists who vowed that they will step up their fight. Government sources alternately claim the perpetrators are former Gaddafi loyalists or Islamists. Further confusion arises from a government clampdown on the dissemination of information in the local media, and by Libyan security forces preventing foreign journalists from covering the scenes of attacks first-hand, or taking pictures. (11) The Libyan bureaucrats’ clampdown on media information is understandable, since they want to hamper solidarity with the Green Resistance. MASS DENIAL Regarding the Benghazi incident, the mass denial begins with basic facts. For example, most people refer to “the US consulate,” when in reality the US site in Benghazi was not an embassy or a consulate, or even a “compound”. It was a collection of villas (that is, a gated community) privately owned by one Mohammad Al Bishari, who was leasing the villas to US State Department personnel. (12) Collectively the villas were what the US State Department calls an “interim facility”. It had a level of security known as “simple lock and key,” meaning it had no bulletproof glass, reinforced doors, US Marines, or other features common to embassies and consulates. (In Mexico, for example, Washington has an embassy and 22 consulates, but in Libya the US government had only a single embassy in Tripoli – and then, after the NATO bombardment campaign, used the Benghazi villas.) The corporate media falsely use the term “US consulate” to make it seem that “terrorists attacked US sovereignty”. This justifies the “war on terror,” plus the past destruction of Libya. Furthermore, the Obama regime calls the privately owned group of villas a “compound” in order to make it seem that the (non-existent) “protesters” brazenly stormed a fortress similar to the massive US embassy complex in Baghdad. THERE WERE NO PROTESTERS IN BENGHAZI The White House claims that protesters against that anti-Muslim video “spontaneously” attacked the so-called “consulate.”  In reality there were no protesters anywhere in Benghazi at the time of the attack. When Fox News questioned US officials about this, the officials admitted the truth. (13) Nonetheless, the Obama administration/regime continues to insist that “protesters did it”. This lie not only conceals the Green Resistance; it also makes Muslims all seem irrational and blood-lusting, thereby justifying imperialist aggression (that is, the “war on terror”). The absence of protesters was confirmed by one of the eight Libyans guarding the private group of villas used by Ambassador Stevens and his staff.  The eyewitness, aged 27, is being treated in a hospital for five shrapnel wounds in one leg, and two bullet wounds in the other. He asked that his name be withheld, and that the hospital not be identified, for fear that “militants” (that is, the Green Resistance) would track him down and kill him. Of the eight Libyan security guards, the eyewitness and four others had been hired by a British firm. The remaining three were members of Libya’s 17th of February Brigade, a group of pro-NATO terrorists formed at the start of the NATO campaign to destroy Gaddafi and Libyan society. In an interview with McClatchy news service last Thursday (13 September 2012) the eyewitness said there were no protesters at all. “The Americans would have left if there had been protesters, but there wasn’t a single ant. The area was totally quiet until about 9:35 pm, when as many as 125 men attacked with machine guns, grenades, RPGs, and anti-aircraft weapons. They threw grenades into the villas, wounding me and knocking me down. Then they stormed through the facility’s main gate, moving from villa to villa.” That does not sound like a “spontaneous protest” against a blasphemous B-movie that suddenly appeared on the internet, as the White House and others claim; rather, it was a sharply executed military strike that must have been planned meticulously well in advance. The eyewitness managed to escape by telling one of the attackers that he was only a gardener in the gated community. His account is consistent with that of Mohammad Al Bishari, who owns the villas, and was leasing them to the US government. Bishari gave his own account on 12 September, the day after the attack. (12) Ambassador Stevens was overcome by “severe asphyxia” (smoke inhalation), and was still alive after the attack. Pro-US Libyans in Benghazi carried him to the Benghazi Medical center, where he died later in the night. (14) RESISTANCE GROWS NATO destroyed Libya and reduced its people to poverty and violence. In the post-destruction chaos, there are family feuds and inter-militia rivalries. There are long-standing disputes over land, plus long-standing friction between Arabs and Berbers. However, we shall focus on Resistance attacks against NATO targets, and Resistance assassinations of Libyan figures that betrayed Gaddafi and sided with NATO. The following are only some of the “scores”. On 18 March 2012, in the Tripoli neighborhood of Abu Salim (a pro-Gaddafi stronghold) local members of the Green Resistance had a shoot-out with a pro-NATO militia group from Zintan led by one Mohammed El-Rebay. (Zintan is a province in Libya’s western mountains.) The Resistance managed to kill one of the Zintan terrorists, who had been using a Tripoli school as their base. (15) In April 2012, the Resistance detonated a roadside bomb beside a UN convoy that included Ian Martin, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s Special Representative for Libya. (16) On 29 April 2012, the lifeless body of Shukri Ghanem, Gaddafi’s former oil minister, was found floating in the River Danube. In May 2011, Ghanem had joined NATO, and went off to reside in London and then Vienna. (17) On 2 May 2012, the Green Resistance claimed responsibility for assassinating General Albarrani Shkal, a former military governor of Tripoli who had demobilized the 38,000 men of his guard and opened the gates of Tripoli to foreign troops during Operation Mermaid Dawn, the sacking of Tripoli that began on 20 August 2011.  (Tripoli’s nickname is “The Mermaid”.) (18) On 15 May 2012, Khaled Abu Salah, a candidate for the Constituent Assembly controlled by NATO, was assassinated near the oasis town of Ubari in southwest Libya. (19) On 22 May 2012, a rocket-propelled grenade targeted the headquarters of the International Committee of the Red Cross in Benghazi, but caused only structural damage to the premises. The ICRC is headquartered in Geneva, and its foreign offices are often used as cover by Western intelligence agencies, such as MI6 or the CIA. On 26 May 2012, Mukhtar Fernana, head of the Military Council for the Western Region, survived an assassination attempt. On 5 June 2012, the Resistance detonated a bomb in front of the US-operated building in Tripoli, damaging its gates. On 11 June 2012, in Benghazi’s al-Rabha neighborhood, the Resistance fired an RPG at a convoy that carried British Ambassador Dominic Asquith, wounding two of his bodyguards. (20) Back in July 2011, Abdel-Fattah Younis, the former Qaddafi loyalist turned “rebel” military commander, was assassinated. On 22 June 2012, the judge investigating the death of Younis was himself assassinated in Benghazi. On 28 July 2012, Suleiman Buzraidah was killed in a drive-by shooting while he was en route to a Benghazi mosque. Buzraidah had been a military intelligence official under Gaddafi, but betrayed him to join the NATO-backed terrorists.  (21) On 29 July 2012, Khalifa Belqasim Haftar narrowly survived an assassination attempt. Formerly one of Gaddafi’s army commanders, in 1988 he betrayed Gaddafi and lived for 23 years under US government protection near CIA headquarters in Virginia. He returned to Libya during the NATO-led insurgency, hoping that after Gaddafi’s death, he would be made commander-in-chief of the Libyan military (controlled by NATO). However, he had to settle for third place in the hierarchy, and was given the rank of Lt. General before the Resistance caught up with him. Last month was an especially active four weeks for the Resistance. Security buildings and hotels in Benghazi were rocked by bomb attacks and attempted attacks. Foreign diplomatic staff and embassies were targeted. US embassy staff in Tripoli escaped an attempted carjacking. On 10 August 2012, eight Resistance members escaped from the Al Fornaj prison in Tripoli after a coordinated attack. Gunmen in pickup trucks outside the prison shot at security guards, while prisoners inside set sections of the prison on fire and managed to overpower a number of guards. This was the third Resistance attack on the prison since the murder of Gaddafi. (22) On 18 August 2012, the Green Resistanced etonated a car bomb outside the Four Seasons Hotel on Omar Al Mukhtar Street in Tripoli. The target was a vehicle being used by Benghazi security officials (installed by NATO) who were staying at the hotel. (22) Afterwards, the NATO-installed bureaucrats sent heavily armed soldiers to prevent photographs being taken, and to forbid journalists from entering the area, so that word of the Green Resistance would not get out. A Libyan interior ministry official refused to comment further. (22) The following day, the Resistance set off more car bombs in Tripoli. One bomb was near the administrative offices of the Interior Ministry (controlled by the NATO powers). Two other car bombs exploded minutes later near the former headquarters of a women’s police academy, which NATO now uses for interrogation and detentions. (The latter two bombs killed two passersby.) The next day in Benghazi (20 August 2012) Resistance members tossed a bomb into the car of Abdel Hamid Refaii, the first secretary of the Egyptian Embassy. This was outside Refaii’s house. However, the assassination bid failed. The day after that, the then Libyan Prime Minister Abdurrahim El-Keib condemned the Green Resistance in a televised speech, saying: “Desperate and malicious forces among the supporters of the former regime are trying to create tension, send Libya backwards to violence, and sabotage the country’s political process.” (23) Tripoli’s security chief, Col Mahmoud Sherif, said Gaddafi loyalists were responsible for the spate of violent attacks. He ordered the arrest of 32 suspected Resistance members for interrogation. (24) Indeed, the police in Tripoli (who now work for the NATO powers) are constantly occupied with defusing car bombs set by the Resistance. (25) After the Resistance bombing of the former headquarters of a women’s police academy, the NATO puppets sent soldiers to raid a farm where Resistance members were holed up. Several of the Gaddafi loyalists were killed. One of the members who survived was alleged to have set up sleeper cells in Libya and to have been criss-crossing the border with Tunisia from where he and several comrades were smuggling weapons into Libya for the Resistance. (26) On 23 August 2012, Abdelmenom Al Hur, official spokesperson for the Supreme Security Committee, installed by NATO, held a press conference in which he admitted that Gaddafi loyalists had penetrated many official security units. He said that a whole barracks full of heavy armaments was under the control of a pro-Gaddafi cell that he called the Awfia Brigade. (The group’s members call themselves the “Martyr Gaddafi Brigade”.) The same Resistance brigade had briefly occupied Tripoli International Airport back in June 2012. After the attack that killed Ambassador Stevens on 11 September 2012, the Resistance managed to shut down the Benina airport in Benghazi, which the US military was using as a drone base. (27) With the Resistance firing at US drones, the airport had become unsafe. A Turkish Afriqiyah Airlines flight with 121 people onboard was forced to turn back to Istanbul. (28) CONCLUSION The foregoing is only a partial list of Resistance activity over the past year, which has dramatically increased during the last three months, reaching a crescendo in August, and leading to the death of US Ambassador Christopher Stevens last week. The NATO powers had shifted their focus to destroying Syria, and on continuing their preparations to destroy Iran, while letting their Tripoli bureaucrats handle the Green Resistance in Libya. Now, however, the NATO powers realize that Libya is far from subjugated and that they are being seriously tasked with crushing the Resistance before it gains critical mass. Marines, drones, and warships have been sent to quash the Gaddafi loyalists – but how to find them? Even the FBI declined to “investigate” the latest attack in Benghazi, realizing that it would be pointless. Libya presents Washington with another Afghan nightmare – only perhaps worse. If US drones start blasting Libyans, and the US military rounds up tens of thousands of suspected loyalists, then the Resistance can only become stronger. Of Libya’s 5.6 million people, only one in 10 (that is, the population of the eastern city of Benghazi) welcomed the NATO bondage and destruction of their country. Meanwhile, the NATO powers do not want the Western public to realize any of this awkward truth. They want you to think that all Libyans are happy under NATO’s “liberation” with their Islamist terrorist proxies. Some 50,000 Libyans lost their lives due to NATO’s bombing and ground campaign during 2011. And for what? Only for a Resistance to rise up to illustrate to the world that Libyans had their country stolen from them by NATO powers in a criminal war of aggression. The more the Libyan Green Resistance gains strength and challenges the NATO-imposed regime, the more clear it becomes that the Western governments and their media lied in their pretexts of “responsibility to protect (R2P)” human rights and democracy. Recall that these were the pretexts invoked by the NATO powers to justify setting up No-Fly Zones in Libya in March 2011. (The same pretexts are again being reiterated with regard to Syria.) But, as the growing Resistance illustrates, the Western powers did not “liberate” Libya; they invaded a sovereign country and killed massively to execute their real, criminal agenda of regime change and theft of oil resources. Now the people of Libya are resisting this criminal conquest. And that damning truth has to be expunged at all costs. Before the Benghazi incident, the corporate media had occasionally mentioned Gaddafi loyalists. After the incident, all such mention has suddenly ceased. The media say that “extremists” attacked the US site in Benghazi. Or “Al Qaeda” or “Islamists” or “terrorists,” or “protesters” – anyone but the Resistance. Not true. The Green Resistance lives, and furthermore it is only getting started.

Iraq is stronger than Syria. In the short run it is Iraqi power which constitutes the greatest threat to Israel. An Iraqi-Iranian war will tear Iraq apart and cause its downfall at home even before it is able to organize a struggle on a wide front against us. Every kind of inter-Arab confrontation will assist us in the short run and will shorten the way to the more important aim of breaking up Iraq into denominations as in Syria and in Lebanon. In Iraq, a division into provinces along ethnic/religious lines as in Syria during Ottoman times is possible. So, three (or more) states will exist around the three major cities: Basra, Baghdad and Mosul, and Shi'ite areas in the south will separate from the Sunni and Kurdish north.

Interesting to note about Kelly, too, this report says, is that she was the “main liaison” to the many US Military leaders who secretly attended the Republican National Convention in Tampa this past August where they were hosted by some of America’s top billionaires and bankster elites where the coup-plot, Russian intelligence analysts believe, against Obama was first conceived.

Connell has been a top technical wizard for Republican web-based campaign operations, including the firms GovTech Solutions and New Media Communications.

  • 2008 Oct WMR -- Obama's Rice problem The "other Rice," Barack Obama's chief foreign policy adviser Susan Rice, a former Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs under President Bill Clinton, may have egg on her face as a result of the Somali pirate capture of a Belize-flagged Ukrainian freighter, the MV Faina, on September 25 off the Somali coast. The ship is carrying 33 Soviet T-72 tanks, anti-aircraft batteries, rocket and grenade launchers, and ammunition, which was reportedly destined for the government of South Sudan, a breakaway movement that is currently in a tenuous coalition with the central Sudanese government in Khartoum. Rice is a long-time supporter of the southern Sudanese Sudan People's Liberation Army (SPLA) and a virulent critic of the Khartoum government. The capture of the Faina by Somali pirates points to the existence of a secret arms supply line involving Ukraine's neocon government led by President Viktor Yushchenko, the government of Kenya, and the United States. The U.S. Navy is currently shadowing the Faina in a standoff with the Somali captors of the ship.  Wikipedia  He failed to secure a runoff spot during the 2010 Ukrainian presidential election

Israeli-Palestinian tensions often flare into violence and large-scale armed confrontations. The conflict foments anti-American sentiment, due to a perception of U.S. favoritism for Israel. Arab anger over the Palestinian question limits the strength and depth of U.S. partnerships with governments and peoples in the AOR and weakens the legitimacy of moderate regimes in the Arab world...’ “Abraham Foxman, National Director of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) was so alarmed he issued a statement condemning Petraeus’ testimony, asserting in part of it: ‘Gen. Petraeus has simply erred in linking the challenges faced by the U.S. and coalition forces in the region to a solution of the Israeli-Arab conflict, and blaming extremist activities on the absence of peace and the perceived U.S. favoritism for Israel. This linkage is dangerous and counterproductive.’

  • 2011 Feb Wall Street Journal In Libya, the relationship between the State Department and CIA was secret and symbiotic: The consulate provided diplomatic cover for the classified CIA operations. The State Department believed it had a formal agreement with the CIA to provide backup security, although a congressional investigator said it now appears the CIA didn't have the same understanding about its security responsibilities. The spy agency was the first to set up shop. It began building up its presence there soon after the Libyan revolution started in February 2011. The uprising overturned what had been a tight working relationship between the Gadhafi regime's spy services and the Americans, creating a gap that the CIA presence sought to fill, officials said. The CIA worked from a compound publicly referred to as the "annex," which was given a State Department office name to disguise its purpose. The agency focused on countering proliferation and terrorist threats, said an American security contractor who has worked closely with CIA, the Pentagon and State. A main concern was the spread of weapons and militant influences throughout the region, including in Mali, Somalia and Syria, this person said.

(Incidentally, Gaddafi was on the verge of invading Benghazi in 2011, 4 years after the West Point report cited Benghazi as a hotbed of Al Qaeda terrorists. Gaddafi claimed – rightly it turns out – that Benghazi was an Al Qaeda stronghold and a main source of the Libyan rebellion.  But NATO planes stopped him, and protected Benghazi.)

  • 2011 Apr LarRouchePac ...National security team  ... . At the heart of this team have been Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. That core grouping was bolstered by National Security Advisor Gen. James Jones, until his sudden resignation last October. And Vice President Joe Biden has been a closely allied supporter of this core team. Now, according to a senior White House official, briefing reporters yesterday afternoon, today, President Obama will formally announce Secretary Gates's departure on June 30. He will be replaced by CIA Director Leon Panetta. Panetta will be replaced by General David Petraeus, the current commander of ISAF and U.S. forces in Afghanistan. Petraeus's replacement will be General John Allen. And the current U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan, General John Eikenberry, will be replaced by Ryan Crocker, a recently retired foreign service officer who has been Ambassador to both Baghdad and Kabul during his long career. While the senior official said that Secretary of State Clinton was consulted on the personnel changes, sources close to the Secretary say that she is very upset at Gates's departure, and that she does not have a close working relationship with Panetta or Petraeus.

  • 2011 Aug WMR  Skinny Dipping / Tiberias In what may be the most critical part of the Petraeus case is that the FBI "deep throat" may be a "no throat." Sombres and Cantor's deputy chief of staff Doug Heye have been identified as key players in the FBI leak story. However, they were also identified as FBI targets in an event that took place a little less than two moths before Petraeus became CIA director. Cantor led an 80-member House congressional delegation (CODEL) to Israel in August 2011. On the evening of August 18, members of Cantor's staff, and some 30 Republican Representatives were involved in a skinny-dipping incident at the David Citadel Hotel in Tiberias on the Sea of Galilee. The CODEL was funded by the American Israel Educational Foundation, a branch of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).   ...   Representative Kevin Yoder (R-KS) was identified as one of the skinny dippers. Also participating in the late night bathing were Sombres, Tim Berry, chief of staff for GOP Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA); Laena Fallon, Cantor’s former press aide; and Emily Murray, a top policy aide to McCarthy. Several congressmen and their aides reportedly got drunk at the hotel before they jumped into the sea. Joining the swim party were Representatives Steve Southerland (R-FL) and his daughter; Tom Reed (R-NY) and his wife; Ben Quayle (R-AZ), Jeff Denham (R-CA), and Michael Grimm (R-NY). The FBI agent assigned to investigate alleged threatening emails sent by Broadwell to Kelley has been reported by The Wall Street Journal to be the same FBI "employee" who leaked details of the Petraeus matter to Reichert and then to Cantor. The story of the agent is falling apart as the Journal has now reported that the FBI agent became obsessed with Kelley and sent shirtless photos of himself to her. In the world of intelligence, such extraneous information is termed "clutter" and is designed to blur the actual facts. The FBI investigated the Galilee incident for possible Israeli intelligence compromise of the House members and their staff. However, the FBI never revealed the outcome of its investigation. It was Heye who announced that Cantor had satisfied the FBI's concerns. If the FBI's investigation continued, other doors may have opened, doors that led to a planned 2012 "October Surprise" against the President -- doors that led to Cantor's involvement with the Romney campaign in staging the October Surprise. Romney's senior foreign policy aide was Dan Senor, who is close to Netanyahu and Cantor.

I’ll leave that to the braying hounds in the media who have already assumed the role of judge, jury and Lord High Executioner. But I will say, the whole matter smells rather fishy, just like the Eliot Spitzer story smelled fishy. Spitzer, you may recall, was Wall Street’s biggest adversary and a likely candidate to head the SEC, a position at which he would have excelled. In fact, there’s no doubt in my mind that if Spitzer had been appointed to lead the SEC, most of the top investment bankers on Wall Street would presently be making license plates and rope-soled shoes at the federal penitentiary. So, there was plenty of reason to shadow Spitzer’s every move and see what bit of dirt could be dug up on him. As it turns out, the ex-Governor of New York made it easy for his enemies by engaging a high-priced hooker named Ashley Dupre for sex at the Mayflower Hotel. When the news broke, the media descended on Spitzer like a swarm of locusts poring over every salacious detail with the ebullient fervor of a randy 6th-grader. Meanwhile, the crooks on Wall Street were able to breathe a sigh of relief and get back to doing what they do best; fleecing investors and cheating people out of the life savings.

The US agencies were trying to avoid official embarrassment on both sides of the Atlantic by using a narrow legal exemption to prevent the disclosure of critical papers, said Tony Lloyd, a Labour MP and the vice-chairman of the group. He called the judgment "disappointing". The Americans' success in resisting the MPs' inquiries will fuel the controversy over the cover-up of the role said to have been played by British intelligence operatives in spiriting away fugitives and suspects with ministerial approval to secret jails and authoritarian regimes, in particular to Muammar Gaddafi's Libya. Files discovered by The Independent last summer in the abandoned Tripoli offices of Gaddafi's intelligence chief showed a close working relationship with Britain.

  • 2012 June Wikipedia  Ansar al-Sharia (Libya) (English: Partisans of Islamic Law) is an Islamist militia group advocating the implementation of strict Sharia law across Libya. Background Ansar al-Sharia was formed during the Libyan civil war and rose to prominence after the death ofMuammar Gaddafi. Made up of former rebels from the February 17 Brigade, the Salafist militia initially made their name by posting videos of themselves fighting in the Battle of Sirte. Their first major public appearance occurred on 7 June 2012, when they led a rally of armed vehicles along Benghazi’s Tahrir Square and demanded the imposition of Sharia from which they were later the same day chased out by local residents. Its leader, Sheikh Muhammad al-Zawawi, later gave an interview on a local TV station forbidding participation in the July 7 GNC elections on the grounds that they were un-Islamic. The militia went on to provide security to some public property in eastern Libya, including Benghazi's Al Jala Hospital. 2] The group is reportedly the military arm of a charitable organization named Al-Dawa wa Al-Islah. Noman Benotman, a former member of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group and analyst of LibyanIslamism claims that Ansar al Sharia is less an organisation than a term applied to an amorphous coalition of Islamist and Salafist groups active in eastern Libya.

The point is that the Syrian army is considered professional and strong. Moreover, the army, as claimed by some Western media, consists mainly of Alawites. Hence, there is little chance that there will be any defecting from senior army generals or mutiny. Moreover, their track record so far shows full dedication to the cause of crushing the terrorist Salafist rebels. There is little chance that the Syria army will be defeated as a result of lack of motivation or lack of belief in their president. Most of the rebels on the other hand are not Syrians in the first place. They consist of imported terrorists from Iraq (the re-stationed al-Qaida terrorists), Saudi Arabia, Somalia and even Pakistan as per some reports. That is why there have been reports that the rebels have set the corpses of their dead comrades on fire in order to conceal their nationalities.

    • (2)2012 Sep Global Research US Ambassador’s Killing Had Nothing to Do With Al Qaeda, Islamist Blowback or Anti-Islamic Video   ...  The NATO powers and the bureaucrats they installed in Libya want you to think that all 5.6 million Libyans are happy that NATO and its proxy terrorists destroyed Libya, a country which under Gaddafi had the highest standard of living in Africa. They want you to think that NATO brought “freedom and democracy” to Libya, not chaos and death. They want you to think that there is no Green Resistance to the NATO imperialists or NATO’s Islamist allies in Benghazi.  In reality, the Resistance has been increasingly active since shortly after the murder of Muammar Gaddafi in October 2011, as will be shown below. They strike any NATO target they can, and they execute key Libyans who betrayed Gaddafi and sided with NATO. The Benghazi incident was merely their latest blow against what they see as NATO’s illegal occupation of their country. Everyone in Libya knows about the Green Resistance, whose members are called “Tahloob” (Arabic for “Gaddafi loyalists”). The denial only happens outside of Libya, by the NATO powers and their dutiful Western mainstream media. Because of this denial, and because most of the world’s people have forgotten about Libya, the internet is filled with blind guesses, unfounded claims, and ridiculous counterclaims regarding the Benghazi incident last week in which US Ambassador Christopher Stevens and at least three other American personnel were killed. And the NATO lie factory is operating at full blast.  (go to Green Resistance)   On 11 September 2012, in commemoration of 9/11, he released a video that eulogized Abu Yahya Al Libi, the one supposedly killed by a US drone in June. This “eulogy” had nothing to do with the Benghazi incident, which happened later that night on Tuesday 11 September. Some claim that Salafists carried out the fatal attack on the US premises. This is more nonsense, since Salafists are NATO allies.  Salafists and Wahhabists connote a strict, literalist, and puritanical approach to Islam. They are mainly associated with Saudi Arabia’s feudal style of Islam, and they were allied with NATO against Gaddafi.  Now they are allied with NATO against Assad, Iran, Hezbollah, and Shiites generally. An example of Salafists in Libya is the Ansar Al Sharia – a blanket term for various militias that want to apply strict Sharia law in Libya. Its members are pro-NATO and anti-Green Resistance. They had no reason to attack the US government site in Benghazi which had been instrumental in galvanizing the Islamist insurgency to topple the Gaddafi government, beginning at least from March 2011 and under the supervision of the late Christopher Stevens. Stevens was Washington’s point man in Benghazi and is known to have cultivated strong ties with the Islamists. In short, it does not make sense that such Benghazi contacts would have wanted or have been motivated to kill their American paymaster. The most obvious explanation is that cadres – the Green Resistance – loyal to Gaddafi and in opposition to the NATO-imposed regime carried out the attack. NATO and its Libyan quislings don’t want to admit this subversive reality. The fact of a resistance – a potent and growing resistance at that – has to be denied, erased from the record.

On 21 September 2012, after massive anti-militia protests in Benghazi which largely blamed Ansar al-Sharia for the attack, hundreds of protesters stormed the militia headquarters, pulled down flags of the militia and torched a vehicle inside the base. Afterwards, crowds swelled to several thousand strong and breached into Ansar al-Sharia military base where militants opened fire and injured several civilians before retreat. Another compound was taken later that night. Elements of Libyan National Army and Libyan police came to the support of the civilians and took over control of the bases. A few days after the attack, Ansar al-Sharia, together with Bou Salim Martyrs brigade, agreed to disband, however as of October 2012 they are still operating out of the Jebel Akhdar area.

On October 25, 2012 a major news agency, CNBC, attracted the attention of the world's leading media to the largest claim of money laundering and racketeering in U.S. history, by which "banksters" (a new word formed by joining the words "banker" and "gangster") and their partners are accused of dishonestly obtaining income of $ 43 trillion through racketeering. The lawsuit said that the case involves officials at the highest levels in the U.S. government and the financial sector. As the Obama administration did not pursue a criminal prosecution of a single one of the "banksters" and in fact borrowed money from them for the Obama campaign, the national homeowners group of plaintiffs' which initiated the lawsuit, was forced to extend the lawsuit to include racketeering, money laundering and willful violations of sanctions against the Iran Sanctions Act by national banks, and included “banksters” among the number of defendants. The list of alleged conspirators included: Attorney General Eric Holder, Assistant Attorney General Tony West, a former New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine, a former finance minister and one of the banksters Robert Rubin, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, Vikram Pandit (recently resigned disgraced CEO of Citigroup), a senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, a former "director of communications" in the Obama administration, Anita Dunn, the husband of Anita Dunn and General Counsel of Obama's election campaign, Robert Bauer, and numerous "banksters," their affiliates and trustees. A collective petition was prepared by the law firm Spire Law Group, LLP. Once this information surprisingly surfaced in major world news, suspicious events began to occur.

It’s still being vetted.” (That information was not part of the CIA’s timeline of the Benghazi assault, and Eli Lake of the Daily Beast reports that the CIA has denied any such detention.) “I don’t know if a lot of you have heard this,” Broadwell prefaced her remarks by saying. It was a surprising disclosure, given the deep classification of the CIA’s detention policies — and the enormous political stakes surrounding the Benghazi assault.

Ambassador Stevens, who had famously arrived in Benghazi in April 2011 aboard a Greek cargo ship, became the lynchpin coordinating the administration’s ties with the armed Islamist groups.    ...    The ambassador’s bonding with the Islamist fighters was well known. He shifted base from a Tripoli hotel after he escaped an assassination attempt outside its premises to the more secure villas of Benghazi, the hotbed of jihadists. So confident was he about his security that he enjoyed jogging on the streets of Benghazi teeming with jihadi groups — many with well-established connections to the Afghan Mujahideen and the al-Qaeda.

    • 2012 Nov  VeteransNewsNow  In other words, we are asked to believe that a single, low-ranking, zealous FBI agent has toppled the careers of two top US Generals:  ...  Nothing could be more far-fetched simply on prima facie evidence. CIA Director, General Petraeus has been a major supporter of the proxy wars in Libya and Syria.  In those efforts he has promoted a policy of collaboration with rightwing Islamist regimes and Islamist opposition movements,including training and arming Islamist fundamentalists in order to topple targeted, mostly secular, regimes in the Middle East.  In pursuit of this policy – Petraeus has had the backing of nearly the entire US political spectrum. However, Petraeus was well aware that this ‘grand alliance’ between the US and the rightwing Islamist regimes and movements to secure imperial hegemony, would require re-calibrating US relations with Israel.  Petraeus viewed Netanyahu’s proposed war with Iran, his bloody land grabs in the Occupied Territories of Palestine and the bombing, dispossession and assassination of scores of Palestinians each month, were a liability as Washington sought support from the Islamist regimes in Egypt, Tunisia, Turkey, Afghanistan, Pakistan, the Gulf States, Iraq and Yemen.   Petraeus implied this in public statements and behind closed doors he advocated the withdrawal of US support for Israel’s violent settler expansion into Palestine, even urging the Obama regime to pressure Netanyahu to reach some settlement with the pliable US client Abbas leadership.  Above all, Petraeus backed the violent jihadists in Libya and Syria while opposing an Israel-initiated war against Iran, which he implied, would polarize the entire Moslem world against the Washington-Tel Aviv alliance and ‘provoke the US-proxy supplied Islamist fundamentalists to turn their arms against their CIA patrons.  The imperial policy, according to General Petraeus world view, was in conflict with Israel’s strategy of fomenting hostility among Islamist regimes and movements against the US and, especially, the Jewish state’s promotion of regional conflicts in order to mask and intensify its ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians.  Central to Israeli strategy and what posed the most immediate threat to the implementation of a Petraeus’ doctrine was the influence of the Zionist power configuration (ZPC) in and out of the US government.

Furthermore, Broadwell confirmed that the CIA Annex in Libya had requested reinforcements and could have “reinforced the consulate and the CIA annex that were under attack.” Broadwell also said Petraeus and administration officials knew within 24 hours the possible motives behind the terrorist attacks.   In January of 2009, the Obama administration ordered secret interrogation camps abroad to be closed.

By PHILIP GIRALDI  To set up the interview between Petraeus and the FBI, the CIA Office of Security must have become involved. One suspects that the security people must have already known about the affair, as the DCI operates within a tight security cocoon. If they knew, others in the Agency also knew. Contrary to some recent press coverage, Petraeus was not very well liked by many at CIA. Former military officers in general are disliked pro forma, but Petraeus was particularly resented because he was perceived as moving forward with the paramilitarization of the Agency. He recently requested more drones and the paramilitary share of a shrinking overall budget continues to grow. This has particularly miffed the Agency’s former elite, the Clandestine Services, a group well versed in bringing about regime change within CIA itself. I personally recall how they mounted a campaign and forced out the Reagan/Bill Casey selection as Director of Operations Max Hugel back in 1981. They also contributed to the fall of Director John Deutch. Agency spies have long watched their money and influence shrink and might have figured out some way to help things along with the objective of bidding fond farewell to General Petraeus.

It was Morell who in August 2001 delivered the fateful report, “Bin Laden Determined to Strike the U.S.,” that would be made infamous by the 9/11 Commission. He was in that Sarasota, Florida classroom where Bush was reading a children’s book when he first heard that the World Trade Center had been hit. When Bush asked, “Who did this?” Morell said, “I haven’t seen any intelligence, but I would bet every dollar I have that it’s al Qaeda.”

That is her analysis that the attack on the annex, following the consulate attack, was motivated to free prisioners that were being held there. The press is saying this was a secret CIA prison.

David Petraeus may have told his alleged mistress Paula Broadwell what really happened in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 when terrorists murdered U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.  Broadwell, whose alleged affair with Petraeus forced him to resign last Friday, revealed during an October 26 speech at the University of Denver that Libyan terrorists may have attacked the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 in order to take back Libyan militia members the CIA Annex had taken prisoner. Furthermore, Broadwell confirmed that the CIA Annex in Libya had requested reinforcements and could have “reinforced the consulate and the CIA annex that were under attack.” Broadwell also said Petraeus and administration officials knew within 24 hours the possible motives behind the terrorist attacks.   In January of 2009, the Obama administration ordered secret interrogation camps abroad to be closed. Broadwell's comments about the CIA Annex having captured Libyan militia members may reveal some of these overseas prisons may still be operational.

There are many details that have not yet emerged and some informed speculation remains the order of the day. However, based on what we know know, a perhaps somewhat unwitting Petraeus; several Republicans, including failed GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, Republican Party Svengali Karl Rove, Romney adviser Dan Senor; and the Binyamin Netanyahu government in Israel were involved behind the scenes to discredit and ensure the electoral downfall of President Barack Obama by engineering what Romney reportedly himself described as a "Jimmy Carter Strategy" in an October Surprise.  Romney appears to be at the center of the Jimmy Carter Strategy and it is worth noting that the involvement of Petraeus and other flag rank officers, including ousted U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) chief General Carter Ham and Rear Admiral Charles Gaouette, the commander of the Middle East-deployed USS John Stennis aircraft carrier strike force. Gaouette was sacked by the Navy for “inappropriate leadership judgment” while his carrier group was in the Pacific en route to the Indian Ocean. Although the Stennis group was in the Pacific during the U.S. consulate siege in Benghazi on September 11, Gaouette's departure had nothing to do with personal misconduct and was very unusual during a deployment. WMR is being informed by sources throughout the military services that a number of senior military officers throughout the world were involved in the Romney campaign's Jimmy Carter Strategy to embarrass Obama prior to the election and that the insubordinate, if not treasonous, behavior extended to Petraeus's reported paramour, Army Reserve Lieutenant Colonel Paula Broadwell.

  • 2012 Nov 13 Cannonfire   Why has the right remained so fixated on Benghazi, even though the average citizen wisely refused to go mad over the issue? I've long thought that a clue can be found in this Craig Unger piece. Unger intimates that leaders of the Republican party had received information from an intelligence source about Benghazi, and that this information was somewhat at odds with the story being told by the Obama administration. Unger does not divulge (and may not know) the name of this source, but it is fair to presume that he or she either serves in the spook community or has a relationship with someone who does. Question 1: Did the same source speak to Broadwell?  Question 2: Was Petraeus the source? Was he chatting up not just Paula Broadwell, but also Karl Rove and crew? Question 3: If Petraeus was not a direct source for the Republicans, could he have been an indirect source?  Odd thought: Perhaps Paula Broadwell was the one who went running to the GOP head honchos. That's quite possible. Right now, however, my main suspicion runs in another direction. Petraeus is best buds with neocon writer Max Boot. During the campaign, Boot functioned as a Romney adviser. Remember all those stories about how Romney had surrounded himself with Dubya's merry band of war-lovers? Boot was a key part of that crew.  The Boot connection strengthens both Craig Unger's story and Bob Parry's. It seems quite possible that Boot was the source who told the Rove/Romney crew to keep pushing the betrayed-in-Benghazi meme. Moreover, it seems quite possible that Boot got his information from David Petraeus. Put yourself in Obama's shoes. If your CIA Director is good friends with the key foreign policy adviser to the guy running against you -- well, yeah, that's something to worry about.

  • 2012 Nov 16 EU Times  CIA Drug Profits-Russian “Honeypot” Spies Linked To Obama Coup Posted by EU Times on Nov 16th, 2012  An interesting Federal Security Services (FSB) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that President Putin’s firing of Deputy Defense Ministers Dmitry Chushkin and Yelena Kozlova yesterday were “directly related” to their actions in helping the United States uncover the full depth of the coup-plot launched against President Barack Obama by a large number of top US Military officers and their fascist backers. The firing of these two Deputy Defense Ministers follows in the wake of last weeks ouster by Putin of Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov for his actions in allowing the release of information relating to this coup-plot to US authorities loyal to Obama from “secure” Russian sources having “highly placed” access to some of Americas top military and intelligence officials, and as we had reported on in our 6 November report “Obama Coup Plot Slams Into Russia”. The “secure” and “highly placed” sources referred to in the FSB report (otherwise known as “Honeypot Spies”) are the Lebanese twin sisters Jill (Kelley) and Natalie Khawam  first photo right] whose father, John Khawam, brought with him to the United States when he emigrated from Lebanon in the 1970’s. Click on the image to enlarge it FSB analysts in this report state that John “Abdul-Basir” Khawam was a “known asset” of the Soviet-era Committee for State Security (KGB) whose “Americanized” daughters Jill and Natalie (both closely linked to top US Military and intelligence officers) were, likewise, trained by master spy Anna Vasil’yevna Kushchyenko, otherwise known as Anna Chapman. To the number of top US Military officers ousted this past month by the Obama regime for their parts in this coup-plot, this report continues, it was expanded this past week when US Army General William “Kip” Ward was forced to resign and Lieutenant Colonel Paula Broadwell had her home searched by the FBI and her security clearances revoked. This FSB report, however, states that Lieutenant Colonel Broadwell was, in fact, an FBI agent herself assigned to Humphries counter-terror team as a counter-agent whose mission was to “explode” the coup-plot against Obama from within. Propaganda US media reports, though, will only admit that Lieutenant Colonel Broadwell applied to the FBI 6 years ago, passed a polygraph test, and was offered an appointment. As we have continued to report on this growing coup-plot (including our reports “Obama Topples Top Coup Leader After Washington Gunbattle”, “Obama Fires Top Admiral As Coup Plot Fears Grows” and “Obama Overthrow Plot Widens As US Martial Law Fears Grow”) the ouster by the Obama regime of many of its top military officers continues at an unprecedented pace. Likewise, the ouster this past week of the three top defense officials in Russia by Putin caught up this US coup-plot continues to astound both Russian FSB and GRU analysts. In order to head off even more chaos as this coup-plot continues to expand in both Russia and the United States, this report says, Putin “unexpectedly” called Obama Tuesday evening to invite him to the Kremlin, an invitation the American President readily accepted. Important to note, also, this report says, is that Obama, in an effort to placate those US Military forces still loyal to him, yesterday signed a secret Executive Order that, in essence, gives his Department of Defense near total control over the entire Internet.

President Obama was ahead in a majority of polls in swing states, and he was leading former Governor Mitt Romney hands down.   Then came reports that the consulate was under attack, after violent protests over a derisive movie entitled Innocence of Muslims which insulted the Prophet Muhammad and decent minded people the world over. Then the news came that Ambassador Stevens were killed along with two CIA security contractors and an IT specialist. The Romney campaign wasted no time issuing a statement even while the embassy staff was still in harms way.

To give a governmental organization the power to assassinate and torture is always a grave mistake that will be sure to have unintended consequences.

They are composed of many small groups with different agendas. They seek advanced anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons from Saudi Arabia and the U.S. But as they slaughter civilians, one sees the imported fighters are more of the same Sunni militants and al Qaeda fighters who had bayonetted Gaddafi through his rectum and left him to bleed to death in the desert. The U.S. media always underplays such unpleasantries coming from the side the U.S. government has decided to back. As massacres and the complete destruction of Libyan cities were hidden by the U.S. press, media filtering will not be able to be pulled off in Syria as it was in Libya, because unlike in Libya and Iraq the U.S. supported forces and any foreign forces will end up facing significant losses of equipment and men.

CIA Director, General Petraeus has been a major supporter of the proxy wars in Libya and Syria.  In those efforts he has promoted a policy of collaboration with rightwing Islamist regimes and Islamist opposition movements,including training and arming Islamist fundamentalists in order to topple targeted, mostly secular, regimes in the Middle East.  In pursuit of this policy – Petraeus has had the backing of nearly the entire US political spectrum. However, Petraeus was well aware that this ‘grand alliance’ between the US and the rightwing Islamist regimes and movements to secure imperial hegemony, would require re-calibrating US relations with Israel.  Petraeus viewed Netanyahu’s proposed war with Iran, his bloody land grabs in the Occupied Territories of Palestine and the bombing, dispossession and assassination of scores of Palestinians each month, were a liability as Washington sought support from the Islamist regimes in Egypt, Tunisia, Turkey, Afghanistan, Pakistan, the Gulf States, Iraq and Yemen.   Petraeus implied this in public statements and behind closed doors he advocated the withdrawal of US support for Israel’s violent settler expansion into Palestine, even urging the Obama regime to pressure Netanyahu to reach some settlement with the pliable US client Abbas leadership.  Above all, Petraeus backed the violent jihadists in Libya and Syria while opposing an Israel-initiated war against Iran, which he implied, would polarize the entire Moslem world against the Washington-Tel Aviv alliance and ‘provoke the US-proxy supplied Islamist fundamentalists to turn their arms against their CIA patrons.  The imperial policy, according to General Petraeus world view, was in conflict with Israel’s strategy of fomenting hostility among Islamist regimes and movements against the US and, especially, the Jewish state’s promotion of regional conflicts in order to mask and intensify its ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians.  Central to Israeli strategy and what posed the most immediate threat to the implementation of a Petraeus’ doctrine was the influence of the Zionist power configuration (ZPC) in and out of the US government.

Crudely, that is how one African human rights activist described U.S. ambassador to the UN Susan Rice in 1998, while she served as Secretary of State Madeline Albright's Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs. The references were to Ugandan dictator Yoweri Museveni, Rwandan dictator Paul Kagame, Ethiopia's late dictator Meles Zenawi, and the late Sudan People's Liberation Movement's South Sudan secessionist leader John Garang. All were former Marxists, later called "beacons of hope" for Africa by Albright, but more derisively referred to as Albright's "red princes" by critics of her and Rice's neo-colonialist policy toward Africa. Rice has actually lectured Ugandan, Rwandan, Ethiopian, and Burundian opposition leaders on their need to work with the dictators' one-party governments, stressing to them that opposition parties are an impediment to development of their economies. Rice, known for wearing mini-skirts and tall boots at sensitive diplomatic gatherings, was considered by a number of African leaders and ambassadors to be a "light weight" in international diplomacy. Rice grew up next door to Albright in northwest Washington, DC and Rice played with Albright's daughters as a child. Albright also became Rice's godmother.

  • 2012 Nov 24 WSWS According to CBS, the DNI toned down the references to terrorism because “the links to al Qaeda were deemed too ‘tenuous’ to make public.” However, another “senior intelligence official” who spoke to CBS defended the edits as made necessary by the need to protect “sensitive details.” In the final weeks of the US election campaign, Republican Party spokesmen and right-wing media mouthpieces like Fox News portrayed Rice’s appearances as a deliberate effort by the White House to deceive the American public and sustain Obama’s posture as the “commander-in-chief” who killed Osama bin Laden and decimated the Al Qaeda group. This polemic was itself politically motivated, as the Romney campaign and its ultra-right backers sought to generate an “October surprise” that could be used to destabilize the Obama administration and even defeat Obama’s reelection bid. The Republican campaign took advantage of the inability of the Obama administration to explain the actual circumstances surrounding the Benghazi debacle: the close ties which American imperialism has formed with its nominal adversary in the “war on terror,” the Islamic fundamentalist groups linked to Al Qaeda. The Obama administration and the military made use of the services of Islamic fundamentalist gunmen in the campaign to overthrow Muammar Gaddafi in Libya, with the result that such forces now dominate much of the country, including the eastern region around Benghazi, where the US-backed revolt began.

It was not a diplomatic station. It was a planning and operations center, a logistics hub for weapons and arms being funneled out of Libya. Unlike the embassy in Tripoli, there was limited security in Benghazi. Why? So the operation did not draw attention to what was going on there.  ...  What was really happening, before Gaddafi’s body was even cold, is that we had people locating caches of weapons, separating the working from those that weren’t, and making a big show of destroying the weapons, but only the weapons that were useless. The working weapons were being given to Islamic terrorists. They were being funneled through Libya, crisscrossing Libya on a Muslim Brotherhood managed strategic supply route. In fact, Michael Reagan called it the modern day equivalent of the Ho Chi Minh Trail in a recent article he wrote, and he is correct. The entire arms and weapons running operation was headquartered in Benghazi, The weapons were actually being shipped out of Libya from the port city of Dernah, located about a hundred miles east of Benghazi. That was the ‘choke point’ of the weapons being shipped out. Remember the Lusitania? Think in those terms, ships carrying weapons hid among ‘humanitarian aid.’ By the time of the attacks, an estimated 30-40 million pounds of arms were already transported out of Libya. From there, the weapons were being sent to staging areas in Turkey near the Syrian border, for use by the Free Syrian Army and other ragtag terrorist groups to fight against Assad.

Webster Tarpley / PressTV  Coup and Counter Coup
Sometimes, generals purge politicians. In 1648, during the English Civil War, Colonel Pride and his troops removed those members of the Long Parliament who opposed military domination; the puppets who remained were called the Rump Parliament. This year, a cabal of generals evidently believed it could secure the White House for Mitt Romney by staging the Benghazi incident and using it as the signal for a cold coup under cover of elections -- probably including computer-generated election fraud -- to bring down Obama. They guessed wrong.  Politicians sometimes purge generals. When the French Secret Army Organization (OAS) staged a putsch in Algiers in April 1961 to prevent the independence of Algeria, President de Gaulle had to round up and jail a number of generals and other officers. The Obama administration and its establishment controllers appear to be ousting a number of intelligence and military officials who took part in illegal operations to replace Obama with Romney. These sackings are being presented to the public under the guise of soap opera sexual infractions or expense account padding, in the hope of hiding some real mechanisms of power from the popular gaze. The outgoing US military cabal favors the extension of colonial wars, like those in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as an attack on Iran. Good riddance.  General Petraeus: Neocon Who Sought War with Iran  The most spectacular example is the fall of General David Petraeus, the CIA director, and one of the leading US advocates of an early war with Iran. The heads of several other rogue figures are rolling. The result is one of those rare moments when parts of the rogue network or invisible government can be observed by those who have enough knowledge to understand what they are seeing. But the firings have only scratched the surface.  The Romney backers were made up of neocons, Bush holdovers, and members of the Mormon Mafia in the intelligence community -- a relatively narrow base. The Obama supporters were the Brzezinski-Nye soft power group and military opposed to the Iran war. The neocons and reactionary Mormons wanted to restore aggressive war and wholesale bombing as the preferred option for US foreign policy. Although they love drones and assassinations, they want to keep significant US conventional forces in the Middle East.  The pro-Obama group wants to avoid large conventional commitments. They want to rely on cyber-warfare, drones, assassinations, bombing, raids by special forces, and economic warfare in the form of trade sanctions and technology embargoes. When they want to destroy a country like Syria, they do not favor direct US invasion or bombing, but rather seek to use proxies like Turkey and the al-Qaeda patsy network to get the double benefit of weakening both ally and enemy. Above all, they love color revolutions and soft-power subversion.  Benghazi, September 11: CIA assets kill US envoy while CIA team is ordered to stand down and other CIA assets fail to intervene The Benghazi consulate was prevalently a CIA post, with significant military capabilities. Ambassador Stevens had strong CIA connections and served as a liaison with the al-Qaeda-linked terrorists of the Benghazi-Derna-Tobruk corridor, whom the CIA is using for the attack on Syria. His last conversation with a Turkish diplomat was evidently a discussion on this topic.  Stevens and others thought they had nothing to fear because their relations with the Islamist fighters were so cordial. The attack that killed Stevens was carried out by forces under the control of Sufiyan Qumu (also Kumu or Gumu), who had been held in Guantanamo for several years and released as a CIA asset for the overthrow of Gaddafi. A significant group of CIA paramilitaries stationed nearby was ordered to stand down by the CIA command structure.  Another CIA asset, the February 17 Martyrs Brigade, which had in the summer of 2011 assassinated General Younes in order to help the CIA operative General Hifter to take control of the rebel army, had contracted to provide additional security, but also did not intervene. General Petraeus went to the movies that night. On September 14, Petraeus told the House Intelligence committee that the Benghazi incident had been spontaneous, a demonstration gone violent.  This is the line which Susan Rice mouthed on television in mid-September. (She should be fired for other reasons.) The Obama administration was in any case eager to hide the fact that it had turned Libya over to al-Qaeda. The goal of Benghazi was an early October surprise to Carterize Obama, and the CIA was commanded by Petraeus.  Petraeus arrived at the CIA on September 6, 2011. Within a month, a new provocation was launched against Iran in the form of absurd accusations that members of the Quds Force were plotting to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to Washington, DC. Intelligence community conduit David Ignatius wrote at the time that a big reason the implausible plot story gained credibility was the “fact the CIA meaning Petraeus] and other intelligence agencies gathered information corroborating the informants’ juicy allegations” implicating the Quds Force and the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps.  In reality, the patsies involved came from the Drug Enforcement Administration and/or the Mujaheddin e-Khalq (MEK), an anti-Iranian terrorist force maintained by the US in Iraq. The MEK has now been rewarded by being removed from the State Department’s list of terrorist organizations. (David Ignatius, “Those Keystone Iranians: Why Such a Crude at Assassination Plot?, Washington Post, October 12, 2011) The goal of the operation was to abort possible diplomatic solutions to tensions between NATO and Iran.  In Washington, the neocon Petraeus was always considered as General Betray-US, Bush’s warlord and the key front man for the Iraq surge. He was the darling of the civilian chickenhawk neocons, who saw in him a presidential vehicle to return to power after the debacles in Afghanistan and Iraq. Petraeus’ neocon sherpas were Frederick Kagan and Max Boot, who also helped him to refurbish his image concerning Israel. Obama was always afraid that Petraeus would run for president, and when Romney took the nomination, feared that Petraeus might be a candidate for vice president.  Like General George Marshall on the evening of December 6, 1941 -- who stayed conveniently out of the loop under various pretexts because he wanted the Pearl Harbor attack to occur as a means of damaging President Roosevelt -- Petraeus was at the movies during the Benghazi attack, attending a private screening at the Canadian Embassy of the movie Argo with Ben Afflek, which deals with a 1979 covert CIA operation in Tehran.  The Night of the Long Knives  The hatred of key members of the US officer corps for Obama was illustrated through the comments of Petraeus’ friend, the warmonger General Stanley McChrystal, who was ousted in June 2010. In addition to Petraeus, the following officers are also either sacked or the object of scandals or investigations:  Marine General John R. Allen is in trouble. Currently the commander of US forces in Afghanistan, Allen had been slated to take over from Admiral Stavridis as NATO Supreme Commander, but Obama has now put this nomination on hold. Allen is accused of having an improper relationship with the Tampa, Florida hostess and socialite Jill Kelley, originally of the Lebanese Khawam family. Mrs. Kelley had insinuated herself into the social circle of generals at McDill Air Force Base, the location of the US Central command. Allen and Petraeus both wrote letters to a judge supporting Kelley’s twin sister in a child custody fight. According to some accounts, Allen sent either 30,000 pages or 30,000 e-mails to Kelly over a few years. Allen denies wrongdoing, but the handwriting is on the wall.  General Carter Ham, commander of US Africom, whose area of responsibility includes Libya, manifestly failed to send forces to stop the attack on the Benghazi consulate and CIA post. Panetta announced on October 18 that Ham was being replaced. The official line is that Ham decided to retire of his own volition. There were many days of confusion in Washington about his leaving.  Admiral James G. Stavridis, the outgoing NATO Supreme Commander, has been officially reprimanded by Navy Secretary Ray Mabus for lavish spending on his personal lifestyle, including a junket to a wine dinner in France. He will soon leave his post.  General William E. “Kip” Ward, who commanded US Africom from October 2007 to March 2011, presided over the preparation and launching of the attack on Libya. On the surface, Ward is accused of spending several hundred thousand dollars of government money and resources on family members, luxury junkets, and flights. He had been under investigation for a year and a half, but it was announced on November 13 that he would be fined $82,000 and demoted from full general to lieutenant general, reducing his pension.  Lieutenant General Patrick J. O’Reilly, the Director of the Pentagon’s Missile Defense Agency, has also been reprimanded by the Defense Department’s Inspector General for intimidating and humiliating subordinates, thus creating a work environment characterized by one subordinate as “management by blowtorch and pliers.” (Washington Post, November 15, 2012) O’Reilly is being ousted from his post before the conclusion of the usual four year tenure, and demoted to major general. His departure was deplored on the floor of Congress by Representative Mo Brooks of Alabama, a reactionary and racist Republican.  Rear Admiral Chuck Gaouette was the commander of the USS Stennis carrier battle group, currently stationed in the Arabian Sea, near Iran and other possible targets for aggression and/or Gulf of Tonkin provocations. Gaouette is currently being investigated for “inappropriate leadership judgment” while on station in the Middle East.  Brigadier General Jeffrey Sinclair, second in command of the 82nd Airborne Division stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, and a key man for Afghanistan logistics, is accused of raping and having an adulterous affair with a female captain he had gotten transferred to his command. The prosecution has already sabotaged its own case, raising the chances that the case will be thrown out of court, while charges of pornography and alcoholism on duty may have been invented, pointing once again to a political motive. Press accounts feature Sinclair’s assertion, “I’m a general. I’ll do whatever the expletive] I want.”  Commander Joseph E. Darlak, commanding officer of the frigate USS Vandegrifft and two other senior officers having been removed after a drunken orgy during a visit to the port of Vladivostok, Russia. Details are sketchy, but the goal of the escapade might well have been a provocation against the Putin government. According to one account, over 20 top naval officers have been fired during 2012.  Christopher E. Kubasik was fired as president and Chief Operating Officer of Lockheed Martin Corp., the top US defense contractor in 2008 and 2009. Lockheed Chairman Rob Stevens had allegedly requested an ethics investigation, which revealed a sexual affair with a subordinate. Lockheed’s electronic warfare and cyber warfare capabilities are formidable.  Naturally, it is impossible to know at this time how many of these cases are actually based on the reasons stated, and how many actually involve complicity with operations targeting the White House.  On the Thursday after the presidential vote, Defense Secretary Panetta ordered Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Martin Dempsey, an ally of Obama, to conduct a wide-ranging review of misconduct by senior military officers. The general public is supposed to think that this review will be mainly concerned with wrongdoing such as adultery, sexual harassment, embezzlement, and the like. But the reality is most likely a purge of officers associated with the pro-Romney coup machinations of September-October 2012.  With all these figures removed, it is likely to be more difficult for Israel’s Netanyahu to launch his war against Iran in the way that had been planned. He has therefore fallen back on the option of starting a smaller war in Gaza as a means of stabilizing the US-UK-Israel war party while other options are sought. The rogue network, now a wounded beast, must be counted doubly dangerous.  The Mata Haris  Mata Hari’s method was to seduce French generals and send their secrets to Berlin. The cover story for Petraeus’ ouster involves his affair with Paula Broadwell, who fraternized extensively with the general in Afghanistan while she was preparing a fawning campaign biography of the general entitledAll In: The Education of General David Petraeus -- not to be confused with Flaubert’s L’Education sentimentale. Broadwell is a lieutenant colonel of military intelligence with a background at the Joint Special Operations Command and, according to some accounts, a knowledge of Arabic.  She says she has a top secret security clearance “and then some.” She has hobnobbed at the Obama White House and with Karl Rove. By all indications, and whether she knew it or not, she was deployed to embroil Petraeus with a view to bringing him down, and she succeeded. When the dalliance became known to the FBI and thence leaked to GOP Congressmen Reichert and Cantor, Petraeus was told he had to resign by intelligence czar James Clapper, a creature of Obama.  Jill Kelley and her twin sister Natalie Khawam are also redolent of the intelligence community. Their focus was evidently to lead both Petraeus and Allen onto the flypaper.  The Rogue Network Down but Not Out  The US rogue network has been exceptionally active since the attacks of September 11, 2001 in which the rogues were heavily implicated. In the spring of 2007, Vice President Dick Cheney argued unsuccessfully for an attack on Syria on behalf of the rogue network whose spokesman he was. In August-September 2007, a B-52 bomber loaded with six nuclear cruise missiles was in effect hijacked by the rogue network -- taken out of legal US command -- and flown from North Dakota to Louisiana, presumably on its way to a bombing mission in the Middle East. The B-52 was stopped at Barksdale AFB in Louisiana. Months later, Defense Secretary Robert Gates fired Secretary of the Air Force Michael W. Wynne and Air Force Chief of Staff T. Michael Moseley for poor management of nuclear weapons. A special board under James R. Schlesinger studied nuclear safety, and doubtless also whom to fire. For knowledgeable observers, a window into the rogue network had been opened.  On Christmas Day, 2009, the Nigerian underwear bomber Mutallab attempted to blow up a passenger airliner in the skies over Detroit. During the first week of January, Richard Wolffe of MSNBC reported that the Obama White House had concluded that certain federal officials had acted to prevent Mutallab’s operation from being shut down because they wanted to damage the Obama administration. Still later, Undersecretary of State Patrick Kennedy told a House committee that the State Department had wanted to revoke Mutallab’s visa, but had been prevented from doing so by another (unnamed) federal agency, under the pretext that the Nigerian suicide bomber was being tailed. The Obama administration cravenly backed off further public investigation of this incident, allowing the rogue network to strike again in Benghazi. (All these events are described on Tarpley.net.)
Yemen underwear bomber (Mutallab) was 'Saudi double agent'
  • Independent.UK A bomber from the al-Qa'ida affiliate in Yemen sent to blow up a US-bound airliner last month was actually a double agent who infiltrated the group and volunteered for the suicide mission, US media reported yesterday. Working closely with the CIA, Saudi Arabia's intelligence agency placed the operative inside al-Qa'ida in the Arabian Peninsula, or AQAP, with the goal of convincing his handlers to give him a new type of non-metallic bomb for the mission, the Los Angeles Times reported. Western intelligence agencies have identified AQAP as among the most dangerous and determined al-Qa'ida affiliates in the world, dedicated in part to attacks on the West. The explosive device was intended to be smuggled aboard an aircraft undetected and then detonated. The double agent arranged instead to deliver the device to US and other intelligence authorities waiting outside Yemen, the LA Times reported. The agent arrived safely in an unidentified country and is being debriefed.

  ORCA: Why the Pro-Romney Vote Fraud Did Not Materialize  The purge of so many Romney supporters from the intelligence community and from the military may explain why the expected computer-generated Republican election fraud failed to materialize in the expected dimensions in so many states. Tagg Romney and his associates, many of them investors in Bain Capital, had notoriously bought control of voting machines in almost a score of states, including Ohio. What frustrated the design to steal the election? Perhaps this operation was disrupted and aborted by investigations conveniently timed and targeting some of the main pro-Romney intelligence and military figures in the rogue network.  The answer may also be related to the apparent failure of ORCA, Romney’s data-mining and data management operation, which was supposed to help GOP volunteers get out the vote, but which may have possessed additional and more sinister dimensions. But, as David Gewirtz of ZDNet wrote on November 13, ORCA “got harpooned. ORCA beached. It flopped. It died in the sun. It failed oh-so-bad.” And with it failed the hope of Romney’s backers that they could seize the White House.  The current scandals are extraordinary because they cast light on the rogue network or invisible government of the United States, a topic which is usually strictly taboo for the mass media. For this reason, David Ignatius of the Washington Post, considered close to the intelligence community, is already a warning that it is time to call a halt. Sunlight, Ignatius warns, can be “toxic under the wrong circumstances.”  “For a reminder of why it’s dangerous, take a look at The Crucible and the Lessons of History,” Ignatius concludes. (David Ignatius, “A Modern Witch Hunt,” Washington Post, November 18, 2012) In other words, time to stop the purges before they threaten to engulf the entire rogue network and thus the entire establishment. Patriotic citizens and those who want peace, by contrast, must hope that the revelations go on and on.  WT/HSN 
WMR Sex, Lies, and Audiotapes -- the right-wing plot against Obama
November 12-14, 2012 -- SPECIAL REPORT. Update 2x. Sex, Lies, and Audiotapes -- the right-wing plot against Obama

The Washington Post and The New York Times, America's designated "newspapers of record" -- false record, it should be added -- are working overtime to spin the General David Petraeus scandal away from the actual story. There are many details that have not yet emerged and some informed speculation remains the order of the day. However, based on what we know know, a perhaps somewhat unwitting Petraeus; several Republicans, including failed GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, Republican Party Svengali Karl Rove, Romney adviser Dan Senor; and the Binyamin Netanyahu government in Israel were involved behind the scenes to discredit and ensure the electoral downfall of President Barack Obama by engineering what Romney reportedly himself described as a "Jimmy Carter Strategy" in an October Surprise. The strategy was to bring about an incident in the Middle East that would result in a besieged or overrun U.S. embassy, like the U.S. embassy in Tehran in 1979 and 1980, that would result in charges that Obama, like Carter, was weak and ineffectual in dealing with a major crisis. Such a scenario would erase the street credentials Obama pocketed in the "raid" on Osama bin Laden. Raid is in quotes because the jury remains out on whether the U.S. Navy SEAL attack on the compound in Abbottabad actually resulted in Bin Laden's death or was a staged event to boost Obama's national security resumé. But that is another story for the time being.

Romney appears to be at the center of the Jimmy Carter Strategy and it is worth noting that the involvement of Petraeus and other flag rank officers, including ousted U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) chief General Carter Ham and Rear Admiral Charles Gaouette, the commander of the Middle East-deployed USS John Stennis aircraft carrier strike force. Gaouette was sacked by the Navy for “inappropriate leadership judgment” while his carrier group was in the Pacific en route to the Indian Ocean. Although the Stennis group was in the Pacific during the U.S. consulate siege in Benghazi on September 11, Gaouette's departure had nothing to do with personal misconduct and was very unusual during a deployment. WMR is being informed by sources throughout the military services that a number of senior military officers throughout the world were involved in the Romney campaign's Jimmy Carter Strategy to embarrass Obama prior to the election and that the insubordinate, if not treasonous, behavior extended to Petraeus's reported paramour, Army Reserve Lieutenant Colonel Paula Broadwell.

Broadwell co-wrote Petraeus's biography "All In: The Education of General David Petraeus," with Washington Post reporter Vernon Loeb, who, although a favored recipient for official "leaks" from the Pentagon and CIA, has been the subject of National Security Agency (NSA) wiretap surveillance as part of FIRST FRUITS, the former name of a joint NSA-CIA project designed to plug leaks of classified information. Although Loeb is the Metro editor at the Post, his continued links with U.S. intelligence community sources keeps him on the NSA radar screen. Conversations intercepted between Broadwell and Loeb, especially those using Petraeus's classified and encrypted cell phone and e-mail system, may have been passed to the FBI by NSA. The NSA possesses all the decryption keys for encrypted government communications, including those used by the CIA director.The Petraeus biography, published by the Pearson-owned Penguin Group in London (Broadwell happens to be a PhD student at King's College in London), was a sycophantic portrayal of the commander of U.S. forces in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the chief of the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM). By writing a puff piece on Petraeus, Broadwell was rewarded with a high degree of access not only to Petraeus but his intelligence and, as has now been reported, his classified computer system and email account.

Broadwell and Petraeus first met at Harvard in 2006, prior to Petraeus assuming command of allied troops in Iraq. Broadwell made several visits to Afghanistan where Petraeus was commander of U.S. and allied forces. WMR has learned from military sources that during all of his commands in Iraq, Afghanistan, and in Tampa, Petraeus was known as a "lady's man," and that his troops quietly grumbled about his favoritism toward certain female subordinates and women outside his chain-of-command, including journalists.

Broadwell's and Loeb's book was praised by the favored literati. NBC News' Tom Brokaw wrote: "General Petraeus is one of the most important Americans of our time, in or out of uniform. This riveting, insider's account of his life and education is at once instructive and inspiring." Biographer Doris Kearns Goodwin wrote, "This majestic biography will set the standard for all future works about General Petraeus. With superb narrative skill, Broadwell simultaneously provides an intimate look at Petraeus the man, a fascinating account of modern warfare, and an elegant study of leadership." And Washington's bloviating pundit David Gergen wrote, "Paula Broadwell, soldier-scholar in her own right, tells the Petraeus story masterfully, providing especially rich detail and insight into his Afghanistan mission. This book helps us understand how Petraeus has become the living legend he is."

The plot involving "King David" was uncovered on the shores of Galilee

It is perhaps fitting that the man referred to as "King David" by his detractors in Iraq would have seen the plot against Obama unraveled on the shores of the Sea of Galilee. Petraeus's former spokesman retired Army Colonel Steve Boylan, hired by Petraeus to deal with the media in the aftermath of Petraeus's extramarital affair with Broadwell and revelation of a two-way spat between Broadwell, who referred to Petraeus as "Peaches," and Arabic-speaking Lebanese-American Jill Kelley, a "close" Petraeus friend who works as an "unpaid liaison" officer between the State Department and the Joint Special Operations Command at MacDill Air Force base in Tampa, may have unwittingly let the cat out of the bag by describing the time line of Petraeus's affair with Broadwell. Boylan said Petraeus's affair with Broadwell, with whom he appeared to fancy "sex under the desk" according to emails between the two, began nine or ten months before he ended it four months ago. Using Boylan's math, which obviously came from his friend Petraeus, that means the affair ended in July of this year but began around October 2011. Petraeus was sworn in as CIA director on September 6, 2011.

We also know that according to Republican Representatives Dave Reichert (R-WA) and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), an unidentified FBI agent leaked the Petraeus affair story first to Reichert and then Reichert, instead of following up himself with FBI director Robert Mueller or Attorney General Eric Holder, informed Cantor. Cantor's chief of staff, Steven Sombres, it is being reported, phoned the FBI on October 31 to tell them about the conversation that Cantor had with the FBI "leaker."

In what may be the most critical part of the Petraeus case is that the FBI "deep throat" may be a "no throat." Sombres and Cantor's deputy chief of staff Doug Heye have been identified as key players in the FBI leak story. However, they were also identified as FBI targets in an event that took place a little less than two moths before Petraeus became CIA director. Cantor led an 80-member House congressional delegation (CODEL) to Israel in August 2011. On the evening of August 18, members of Cantor's staff, and some 30 Republican Representatives were involved in a skinny-dipping incident at the David Citadel Hotel in Tiberias on the Sea of Galilee. The CODEL was funded by the American Israel Educational Foundation, a branch of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

Representative Kevin Yoder (R-KS) was identified as one of the skinny dippers. Also participating in the late night bathing were Sombres, Tim Berry, chief of staff for GOP Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA); Laena Fallon, Cantor’s former press aide; and Emily Murray, a top policy aide to McCarthy. Several congressmen and their aides reportedly got drunk at the hotel before they jumped into the sea. Joining the swim party were Representatives Steve Southerland (R-FL) and his daughter; Tom Reed (R-NY) and his wife; Ben Quayle (R-AZ), Jeff Denham (R-CA), and Michael Grimm (R-NY).

The FBI agent assigned to investigate alleged threatening emails sent by Broadwell to Kelley has been reported by The Wall Street Journal to be the same FBI "employee" who leaked details of the Petraeus matter to Reichert and then to Cantor. The story of the agent is falling apart as the Journal has now reported that the FBI agent became obsessed with Kelley and sent shirtless photos of himself to her. In the world of intelligence, such extraneous information is termed "clutter" and is designed to blur the actual facts.

The FBI investigated the Galilee incident for possible Israeli intelligence compromise of the House members and their staff. However, the FBI never revealed the outcome of its investigation. It was Heye who announced that Cantor had satisfied the FBI's concerns. If the FBI's investigation continued, other doors may have opened, doors that led to a planned 2012 "October Surprise" against the President -- doors that led to Cantor's involvement with the Romney campaign in staging the October Surprise. Romney's senior foreign policy aide was Dan Senor, who is close to Netanyahu and Cantor.

Broadwell in Israel

Paula Broadwell is a master's degree graduate of the University of Denver's Josef Korbel School of International Studies, named after the father of former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and the alma mater of former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, whose mentor was Professor Korbel. The University of Denver, like the University of Chicago, has become a spawning ground for neocon academics. Broadwell's fellowship at Harvard University reportedly included abroad in Syria and Iran. Broadwell is reportedly fluent in Arabic. Broadwell, in recent years, has been a frequent visitor to the Persian Gulf, Jordan, and, more importantly, Israel. But even as a West Point cadet, Broadwell spent time in Israel. She admitted in a July 29 interview that while at West Point, she "was exposed to the Israeli Defense Forces as well as the Palestinian Liberation Organization. I met high level politicians and officials and gained an understanding of the dynamics of life on a communal kibbutz, in a refugee camp, and in a Bedouin village, having 'embedded' within each community."

Broadwell, in the same interview, stated that she conducted "surveillance on the DMZ in Korea, providing conflict resolution training in Africa . . . participated in] document exploitation against war criminals in Bosnia, jumping out of airplanes to earn Thai, Indian, and Czech parachute wings, putting together infiltration plans for special forces commandos, serving undercover with the FBI." In other words, if Broadwell can be believed, she was an intelligence agent, herself, and one who wrote a self-serving book about Petraeus in cahoots with a Washington Post editor. The old ties between Langley and the Post continue to flourish.

The catalyst that set the Middle East on fire

The suspicious deaths of two national security agents who may have had knowledge of a threat by Israel and the Romney campaign to discredit Obama add to the plot against the President. On May 10, 2012, Secret Service agent Rafael Prieto, a native of Palmdale, California, accompanied President Obama to Los Angeles where he attended the "Starmageddon" fundraiser at the home of actor George Clooney at 151 El Camino in Beverly Hills. Previously, Prieto was assigned to the security detail of former President Bill Clinton and was based out of the White Plains, New York FBI office. A member of the FBI's national security team in Los Angeles was Stephen Ivens. Ivens's wife Thea said that her husband was unable to sleep over something that was causing him to have anxiety attacks.

On the evening of May 10, Ivens, the father of a two-year old son, grabbed his gun at his home on the 700 block of Scott Road in Burbank and went out on foot into the Burbank foothills. Ivens was reportedly distraught and may have been meeting someone. Prieto happened to be in Los Angeles at the same time. On July 20, after a massive search, Ivens's body was found behind a church near his home on the 2600 block of Scott Road in Burbank after two hikers reported a strange odor. However, on the second day of their search, police and the FBI used dogs who alerted on Ivens's scent in the foothills but never discovered his body. The Los Angeles medical examiner's office, which over the decades, has issued findings that defy logic, concluded that Ivens's died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at the scene where his body was discovered some three months later.

It is unusual for a Secret Service agent to be transferred from a former President's detail to that of a current President. However, in the case of Prieto, he joined Obama's detail from Clinton's. After a period of frostiness, Obama and Clinton patched up past differences and Clinton became one of Obama's chief campaign surrogates. If Obama was made aware of a plot against him by senior military and intelligence officers, he may have confided in Clinton who, after the Monica Lewinsky affair, would have asked Obama how trustworthy is Secret Service detail was. Clinton's experience with FBI White House liaison Gary Aldrich, who, in 1996 wrote Unlimited Access: An FBI Agent Inside the Clinton White House, which exposed Clinton to charges of national security lapses, made the ex-President a believer in trust of the security detail. If Obama expressed any reservations about his security, Clinton may have suggested Prieto and a transfer from New York to the White House may have been arranged.

On the evening of October 27, Prieto's body was discovered in his car in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood of northwest Washington, DC. It was reported that Prieto left the engine of his car running in an alley at 19th and Kenyon Streets and that he died from carbon monoxide poisoning. WMR was informed that a DC policewoman was taking photographs of homes across the street from Prieto's residence, which he shared with another Secret Service, on the 1900 block of Kenyon Street. The policewoman was photographing the homes after Prieto's body was discovered. If Prieto died from what was already concluded to be a suicide, why were the DC Metropolitan Police interested in nearby homes. The DC police had also roped off the intersections of 19th and Kenyon Street and Kenyon Street and Adams Mills Road during a suicide investigation that involved a dozen DC police cars and a crime scene mobile unit and unidentified trucks.

Prieto was said to be despondent after he was discovered to have had a six-year affair with a Mexican woman. Prieto was identified by another Secret Service agent who was under investigation for a scandal involving Secret Service agents on Obama's detail in Cartagena, Colombia and prostitutes during the Summit of the Americas last April. WMR reported at the time that the compromising of the Secret Service agents was part of a plot by Netanyahu and Mossad operatives who run the prostitution racket in Cartagena to discredit Obama.

A few weeks after the Cartagena scandal broke, Prieto and Ivens were in Los Angeles during the Obama fundraiser where another plot was being hatched, one that would create a firestorm in the Middle East and lead to the 9/11/12 attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya by Ansar al-Sharia guerrilla forces. The U.S. compound attackers were associated with Al Qaeda, the always-reliable entity that comes to the assistance of the neocons every time American national security is on the sacrificial altar of the "Temple of Treason."

A 13-minute long trailer for an anti-Islamic film called "The Innocence of Muslims," which depicted the Prophet Mohammed as a sex pervert, was ready to be released on YouTube as the match that would set alight the Middle East. The trailer was filmed the year before as "Desert Warriors" and was the project of an odd consortium of Egyptian Coptic Christians, Hollywood porn movie producers who are Jewish, including Robert Brownell, aka Alan Roberts, and a real estate developer named Jimmy Israel. Brownell, who used a number of porn actors in the movie who were told that the main character was George" and not Mohammed, has produced such "classics" as The Sexpert and The Happy Hooker Goes to Hollywood. Both Roberts and Israel were associated with Egyptian-American Copts named Sam Bacile, whose real name is Nakoula Basseley Nakoula (Screen Actors Guild name Abnob Nakoula Basseley), and Joseph Nasralla Abdelmasih, an anti-Muslim who runs Media for Christ and has connections to anti-Muslim Zionist activists Pam Geller, Robert Spencer, and David Horowitz. Other players in the film production were Steven Klein and Gary Cass, both anti-Muslim Christian fundamentalist activists. At about the same time that Cantor was hosting 80 members of the House in Israel, courtesy of AIPAC, and Petraeus and his paramour Broadwell were taking up residence at Langley, production was underway on the anti-Islamic video being filmed in front of as green screen in Duarte and on the set of what is known as "Baghdad Square," a Middle East war setting located at the Blue Cloud Film Ranch in Santa Clarita, California. Paramount's television division built the set. Paramount TV is part of CBS, which is owned by arch-Zionist Sumner Redstone.

Santa Clarita is up Interstate 5 from Ivens's home in Burbank and due southwest on Highway 14 from Prieto's hometown of Palmdale. After the anti-Muslim video was released it was revealed that the FBI Los Angeles office, where Ivens had worked as a national security and counter-intelligence agent, was investigating the producers of the film. However, the FBI did not indicate when the investigation began and whether Ivens was part of the FBI team looking into the backers of the film.

What could Ivens and Prieto have had in common? Prieto's widow, with whom he was reportedly estranged at the time of his death, although there is no independent verification of that, is Hollywood film executive Ruth Pomerance, someone who would have been privy to the type of Hollywood gossip that would not normally make its way to Washington and to the Secret Service and FBI. Pomerance worked with the movers and shakers of Hollywood as the former head of Michael Ovitz's Artists Management Group, Executive Vice President for Production and Development at USA Films, and Vice-President of Lee Rich Company in New York. Could she have discovered something about the plan to create an incident that would destroy Obama's chances for re-election and imparted that information to her husband, who was sworn to take even a bullet for the president? Did Prieto share the information on the incendiary film with Ivens, a criminal conspiracy so wide that it caused the FBI agent to suffer from anxiety attacks?

Bacile, who also sued the aliases Nicola Bacily and Erwin Salameh, claimed to be an Israeli-American and received funding for the project from 100 Jewish donors. After Bacile was identified as Egyptian Coptic, AIPAC and the Anti-Defamation League immediately denounced the reports on Bacile's Jewish connections with the hackneyed "anti-Semitic" refrain. However, it cannot be denied that the "Innocence of Muslims" project involved Jews long associated with Hollywood. And there is a possibility that Ivens and Prieto were both aware of the plot to release the anti-Islam trailer by circles that had been associated with the Republican and military officers' plot against Obama.

Benghazi: the aborted attempt to create a Jimmy Carter Strategy hostage situation

The attempt to create what Romney called a "Jimmy Carter Strategy" at the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi was immediately seized upon by Fox News, the Romney campaign, and neocon talking heads as a demonstration of Obama's leadership when faced with a crisis. Romney's attempt during the second debate with Obama to claim that the president never used the term terrorism to describe the attack on the consulate that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Foreign Service Information Management officer Sean Smith, and ex-US Navy SEAL team and likely CIA non-official cover security contractor agents Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods. The two ex-SEALs were said to work for a little-known security firm called the Blue Mountain Group. Why was Stevens being protected by contractors in a dangerous war zone? Was it because certain elements within the CIA who were loyal to Petraeus could not be trusted to ensure Stevens's safety? Was Stevens a sacrificial lamb all along in order to embarrass Obama?

The Benghazi compound underwent a five-hour siege that began around 9:42 pm, certainly long enough for the U.S. Navy, AFRICOM, and CIA to react in time to save the staff. The siege was after nightfall and long after normal protesters would have been gathered outside the compound for optimum television coverage. A flash precedence message called a CRITIC was sent from the compound, likely from Sean Smith, the communications specialist, that alerted the chain of command in Washington that what was being experienced was no mere protest engendered by the anti-Muslim video. Benghazi, unlike the scene at the U.S. embassy in Cairo, was a paramilitary operation by seasoned guerrillas. Stevens, before the siege, met with a Turkish envoy who was also a liaison with the Salafist-supported Libyan rebels. Stevens reportedly was trying to gather up portable shoulder-held missile launchers given by him and the CIA to Libyan rebels for use against Muammar Qaddafi's government. The Libyans were transferring the missile launchers to allies within the ranks of the Turkish-supported Syrian rebels. The Libyan army brigade guarding the U.S. compound was said to have been totally infiltrated by Ansar al-Sharia and Omar Abdul Rahman Brigades guerrillas allied with Al Qaeda.

In early September, Petraeus made a secretive trip to Istanbul, Turkey where he met with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Turkish MIT intelligence chief Hakan Fidan. Unlike Petraeus's earlier trip to Ankara in March, the CIA chose to meet Turkish officials in Istanbul, a major CIA station that has, in the past, been infiltrated by Mossad moles in the CIA.

Defense Secretary Panetta and Joint Chiefs Chairman Martin Dempsey were not informed of the siege and the danger to Stevens for a full hour after the CRITIC message was sent from Stevens to the State Department, White House, Pentagon, NSA, and CIA. Broadwell, in an October 26 speech at her Denver alma mater revealed that the CIA was using the Benghazi annex to hold Libyan militants prisoner. It was from this same annex that the CIA dispatched a rescue team to assist Stevens but only 28 minutes before Panetta, Dempsey, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and, assuredly, the White House, had been informed of the attack. The CIA vehemently denied that its annex was being used as a black site. However, the CIA has never admitted to any of its black sites around the world.

Clapper, the former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, who had reportedly tangled with Petraeus in the past, was said to have learned of Petraeus's extramarital affair at 5 pm on Election Day. Clapper, who oversees the CIA, demanded Petraeus resign. However, it is more likely that Clapper, who, like Panetta and Dempsey, are considered loyal to Obama, realized the nature and extent of the Jimmy Carter Strategy and decided it was important to clean house. Even Clapper was likely not aware that Obama would be re-elected at 5 pm on Tuesday.

The relevant question is what the Turkish envoy told Stevens at their meeting prior to the attack. Did the pro-Salafist Turks demand that Stevens release the Libyan militants and did Stevens refuse? Were the militants key to the eventual embassy hostage siege that would be used to destroy Obama's presidency? Did Stevens, like Ivens and Prieto know too much? Has Stevens become a liability that could have exposed part of all of the "Jimmy Carter Strategy" against Obama. These are the questions that congressional investigators should ask witnesses, including Petraeus, Broadwell, and Romney under oath. As for Cantor, the House Ethics Committee should begin an immediate investigation of him and his staff, seizing all emails and files and urging Speaker of the House John Boehner to suspend or fire him as Majority Leader during the ethics investigation. The question is not so much what Cantor knew and when did he know it, but why did he know?

Cantor's staff reporting that the initial report from an FBI "leaker" went to Reichert is dubious. Reichert, a former King's County detective, is a member of the House Homeland Security Committee, not the House Intelligence Committee, which has overall responsibility for the CIA. Reichert was approached by Rep. Jay Inslee (D-WA), now Washington governor-elect, about his mental health following a subdural hematoma after a tree branch struck him on the head in 2010. There were suggestions by his political opponents that Reichert's memory may have been impaired. Reichert insists he is fine but Cantor and his staff would find using Reichert as an initial source for the FBI leak about Petraeus advantageous if the FBI pursues the veracity of Cantor's and his staffs' story.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-MI) was briefed on the Petraeus affair by the FBI prior to his Senate counterpart Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) being informed. Feinstein has complained about being left out initially but she, like the individual being touted as a potential replacement for Petraeus at the CIA, former Representative Jane Harman (D-CA) -- who was under investigation for her links to Mossad agents at the Israeli embassy in Washington -- are known to be virtual sieves of U.S. intelligence to Israeli intelligence agents and uncleared individuals heading U.S. Jewish organizations.

General Ham was in a position to order assistance from U.S. naval units off Benghazi's coast but failed to do so from his command post at the Pentagon. British intelligence sources in Benghazi claimed Stevens's compound and the CIA annex were under sustained fire by attackers on two separate occasions, without help arriving from a U.S. Special Forces Commander’s In Extremis Force or CIF deployed from Stuttgart, Ham's permanent AFRICOM headquarters, to Croatia for OPERATION JACKAL STONE, a training exercise. Information on the CIF in Croatia was leaked by Broadwell in her Denver speech but it was also suspiciously reported by Fox News around the same time.

It is clear that whatever Stevens was involved in had to do with the arming or disarming of radical Islamist guerrillas who were active in Libya and Syria and supported by Turkey and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries of Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. Concurrent with the Petraeus-Broadwell scandal, Navy Arabic linguist James Hitselberger, assigned to an unconventional warfare element that is part of the Joint Special Operations Task Force-Gulf Cooperation Council in Bahrain, was charged with violating the Espionage Act for placing classified documents in a publicly-accessible archive called the "James F. Hitselberger Collection" at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. Like the University of Denver's Korbel School the Hoover Institution is a nesting ground for neocons. The timing of the October 26 arrest and indictment of Hitselberger, just as the information about Petraeus and Broadwell began to spread among certain circles in Washington, is suspicious. Hitselberger was described as someone who could, with no money or assets, successfully blend into any environment in any country, especially Arab countries like Libya and Syria. Was Hitselberger trafficking in classified documents to aid and abet the conspirators against Obama? Was he privy to Benghazi cables sent to the U.S. embassies in the Salafist-supporting GCC countries?

Romney's role in treason

It is clear why Romney hardly ever lauded the military or veterans during the campaign. Romney's Mormon religion was founded upon treason and insurrection against the U.S. government. The day after the deadly attack on the Benghazi compound, Romney condemned Obama's lack of an immediate response to the attack, even though the lack of a response can now be placed at the doorstep of Petraeus, Ham, and the CIA assets in Benghazi. There were reports out of Libya that U.S. assets were airborne near the compound to repel the insurgents' attack, in what was called "Feet Dry Over Libya" but that there was an order for the forces not to land. Who gave that order? Was it Ham in Washington? Was it Petraeus? Or was it another conspirator in the military or CIA chain-of-command?

It is also suspected that Stevens and his own background may have involved him in covert side assignments for the CIA. Stevens may have been made aware of the use of some CIA and Pentagon assets to plot with Romney against Obama. Stevens, who was said by State Department insiders to have been gay, would have naturally wanted the gay rights-supportive Obama administration to triumph over the retrogressive Republicans and Romney. The killing of Stevens would have eliminated a potential source of information that could have hanged the conspirators and an impediment to proving advanced arms to Syrian rebels from Libyan caches pursuant to the wishes of Ankara, Riyadh, and Doha.

Washington Post fixture Bob Woodward reported that the Romney campaign offered him a "source" with detailed knowledge of the Benghazi attacks during the last week of October. Who may that source have been? A photograph has emerged of Broadwell with Romney campaign strategist Karl Rove on June 11, 2012. They were attending a meeting in Washington, DC of the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL). Two things were odd about Broadwell attending the meeting. She was in her Army uniform at what was, ostensibly, a civilian gathering. And NCSL has been at the forefront of drafting legislation on enacting laws that govern the technology used for elections and the maintenance of voter rolls. Karl Rove attending such a gathering is like putting a fox in a henhouse. And what drew Broadwell to a conference partly focused on election integrity? Her background is in counter-terrorism and national security.

Rove has long been rumored to have close links to certain CIA operations, including those in Sweden. Rove has been a political adviser to Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt, a conservative who has sidled up to the CIA on issues ranging from the CIA's rendition of Muslims from Swedish soil, CIA use of Swedish airfields for rendition activity, and the attempt by the United States to bring WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to face trial in the United States.

The Broadwell connection to Rove is key. The death list of those with a possible connection to the Petraeus scandal does not end with Ivens, Prieto, Stevens, and the other Benghazi personnel. On November 9, mere hours before the Petraeus resignation was reported, the body of a private security guard for Reinfeldt was discovered at the Prime Minister's waterfront Sagerska Palace in Stockholm. The guard, said to be a "familiar face" around the palace, worked for Svensk BevakningsTjänst, Sweden's third largest security company, which is owned by the large conglomerate Axel Johnson AB. Renfeldt and his family were not home at the time of the death, which was said to have been caused by an "accidental" or "self-inflicted" gun shot. Is there a connection between the suspicious death of the private guard for Rove's friend Reinfeldt and Obama's Secret Service agent and the FBI agent in Los Angeles? Did one or more of them know too much?

Petraeus girl friend with Karl Rove, June 11, 2012.

Obama never allowed himself to be drawn into the trap laid for him over Benghazi by Romney, Rove, disloyal military officers, and some CIA elements. There are indications the conspiracy against Obama was large. The same day that Petraeus resigned, officially over an "extramarital affair," Christopher Kubisek, the incoming CEO of America's largest defense contractor, Lockeed Martin, was fired by the company's board for a "close, personal relationship" with a subordinate.

If such a series of resignations and forced retirements were to occur in other countries, the CIA would call them a government purge. Former CIA officer Robert Baer said in an interview that he knew of past CIA directors who had extramarital affairs but the FBI had never been called in to investigate. WMR has reported on a past extramarital affair involving CIA director Michael Hayden with a subordinate female Air Force Lieutenant Colonel while he was director of NSA. The FBI was never called in to investigate. Baer may have been referring to Hayden, as well as other past CIA directors.

Petraeus may have been faced with two choices: resigning in disgrace over his "affair" or being prosecuted for treason. He and, presumably others, like Ham and Gaouette, took the easy way out and resigned. Their oath upon being commissioned is succinct:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

Under Article 90 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, during times of war -- and we are always told we are in a permanent war on terrorism -- a military member who willfully disobeys a superior can be sentenced to death. Petraeus is hoping to be named President of Princeton University rather than face a firing squad.

Petraeus has a chance to clear his name to a degree. Just as Marine Corps General Smedley Butler was approached by treasonous Republicans who wanted to oust President Franklin Roosevelt in a coup in 1934, playing along with the plotters until he could amass enough evidence to rat them out to the Congress, Petraeus is in a position to identify the treasonous plotters of 2012. They obviously include Cantor, Rove, Romney, Ham, and others who are, as yet, unidentified. If Petraeus remains silent, he will forever be known by his other handle given to him by his military subordinates: "General Betray Us."

 

. WMR  Petraeus indiscretion may be linked to "October Surprise" plot   November 9-11, 2012 -- LATE EDITION
 

CIA director General David Petraeus, lauded by neo-cons for his marshaling of troops in contrived military campaigns in Iraq, Afghanistan, and, in support of the "global war on terror," throughout the Arab and Muslim world as the chief of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), resigned suddenly on November 9. Petraeus claimed that he was resigning over an extra-marital affair. Petreaus graduated from West Point in 1974 and soon married Holly Knowlton, the daughter of General William Knowlton, the superintendent of West Point while Petraeus was a cadet. Petraeus has been married to his wife for 37 years,

The Washington spin machine is claiming that President Obama first heard about Petraeus's affair and his intent to resign on the evening of November 8. However, a few weeks ago, Petraeus attended a Canadian embassy screening of the movie "Argo," which depicts the CIA's rescue of Americans in Tehran during the U.S. embassy siege. Petraeus was said by several other attendees to be preoccupied with other matters and totally disinterested in the film that received kudos from current and former CIA rank-and-file. There is a belief by many in the intelligence community that Petraeus's affair was already known to the White House weeks ago but that it was decided that his resignation would be tendered after the November 6 election to avoid another scandal on top of the festering Benghazi consulate attack. Moreover, the Petraeus scandal and the siege of the U.S. compound in Benghazi may be linked.

Paula Broadwell, the co-author along with The Washington Post's Vernon Loeb, of Petraeus's biography titled All In: The Education of General David Petraeus, has been under investigation by the FBI for trying to access Petraeus's e-mail, possibly while Petraeus's CIA-issued secure personal digital assistant and/or laptop were left unattended during trysts. The FBI, according to some media reports, has indicated that neither Petraeus nor Broadwell, who also served as an Army officer and is a married West Point graduate with two sons, face criminal charges. WMR has reported in the past that Loeb is a frequent target of National Security Agency (NSA) surveillance as a result of his publication of leaks from intelligence sources.

Broadwell is a Lieutenant Colonel in the Army Reserves. She traveled several times to Afghanistan where she was "embedded" with Petraeus's units. Broadwell has also studied Arabic. She teaches at West Point, serves as a research staffer at Harvard’s Center for Public Leadership and is currently working on her PhD at King’s College in London.

Neo-cons, who had hoped Petraeus would have run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012 and challenged President Obama, expressed anger over Obama's acceptance of Petraeus's letter of resignation. Chief among Petraeus's defenders was the chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA). Arizona Republican Senator John McCain, who has called Petraeus "my dear General Petraeus," also felt Petraeus should have stayed on at the CIA.

However, Petraeus had his enemies and many were from his own ranks. Petraeus's first combat command was not until after he was a general at the age of 50 when he was put in command of the 101st Airborne Division in Iraq in 2003. Prior to that time, Petraeus was called a "pencil sharpening" general, having mainly served on staffs and attending Princeton for his PhD and Georgetown University. In 2004, Petraeus became the first commander of the Multi-National Security Transition Command-Iraq (MNSTC-I) and was responsible for training Iraqi police, army, and security service personnel. Under his command, thousands of U.S. weapons were lost and many ended up in the hands of Iraqi insurgents. There were also questionable contracts awarded to U.S. and Iraqi businesses, such as Custer Battles and Blackwater, that had close links to top Republicans.

It has been reported that in Iraq, Petraeus was known as "King David," however, the appellation had little to do with his royal persona and more to do with his fealty to the neo-cons and Israel. One of Petraeus's chief backers was the late Democratic Representative Tom Lantos of California, an arch-Zionist supporter of Israel. Petraeus re-wrote Army counter-insurgency doctrine, which became known as the Petraeus Doctrine. Two words sum up the Petraeus Doctrine: surges and drones.

Although it is too early to ascertain why the FBI was investigating Broadwell, there is some informed speculation from intelligence professionals that the Mitt Romney campaign had inside help in arranging for a Jimmy Carter-like "October Surprise" to deny Obama a second term. It was the Iran hostage situation in 1980 and a Reagan-Bush mole inside the National Security Council who tipped off the Republicans about last-minute negotiations between Carter's team and Iran to release the U.S. hostages that cost Carter re-election. The name of the mole was Robert Gates, on loan from the CIA to the White House. Gates was a loyalist of former CIA director Bush.

Petraeus, with his close connections to the GOP and the neo-cons, may have attracted the wrong type of girl friend whose access to classified CIA information may have played a role in the bungled CIA operation that resulted in the deaths of four Americans at a CIA safe house facility in Benghazi, officially identified as the U.S. Consulate. The dead included the U.S. ambassador to Libya Christoper Stevens, an individual who was also connected to the CIA through "official cover" status.

When the FBI was ordered to plug leaks about the Benghazi situation, the bureau discovered some leaks were coming from high-level CIA sources, possibly including Petraeus's unattended laptop and PDA.

 

WhatDoesItMean  Ham / Gaouette sacked  THIS ARTICLE IS DISINFORMATION  ... SORCHA FAAL IS A FRAUD
Obama Fires Top Admiral As Coup Plot Fears Grows By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers   A shocking new report prepared by the Foreign Military Intelligence Main Directorate (GRU) of the General Staff of the Armed Forces, and circulating in the Kremlin today, states that President Obama has fired one of the United States Navy’s most powerful Admirals over growing fears the US Military is planning an overthrow of his government. According to this report, yesterday (27 October) Obama ordered the immediate removal of Rear Admiral Charles M. Gaouette  photo 2nd left] from his command of the powerful Carrier Strike Group Three (CSG-3)  photo 3rd left] currently located in the Middle East. CSG-3 is one of five US Navy carrier strike groups currently assigned to the US Pacific Fleet. US Navy carrier strike groups are employed in a variety of roles, which involve gaining and maintaining sea control and projecting power ashore, as well as projecting naval airpower ashore. The aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN-74) is the strike group's current flagship, and as of 2012, other units assigned to Carrier Strike Group Three include Carrier Air Wing Nine; the guided-missile cruisers USS Mobile Bay (CG-53) and USS Antietam (CG-54); and the ships of Destroyer Squadron 21, the guided-missile destroyers USS Wayne E. Meyer (DDG-108), USS Dewey (DDG-105), USS Kidd (DDG-100), and USS Milius (DDG-69). US news reports on Obama’s unprecedented firing of a powerful US Navy Commander during wartime state that Admiral Gaouette’s removal was for   “allegations of inappropriate leadership judgment” that arose during the strike group’s deployment to the Middle East.    This GRU report, however, states that Admiral Gaouette’s firing by President Obama was due to this strike force commander disobeying orders when he ordered his forces on 11 September to “assist and provide intelligence for” American military forces ordered into action by US Army General Carter Ham, who was then the commander of the United States Africa Command (AFRICOM), against terrorist forces attacking the American Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. General Ham had been in command of the initial 2011 US-NATO military intervention in Libya who, like Admiral Gaouette, was fired by Obama. And as we can, in part, read from US military insider accounts of this growing internal conflict between the White House and US Military leaders: “The information I heard today was that General Carter] Ham as head of Africom received the same e-mails the White House received requesting help/support as the attack was taking place. General Ham immediately had a rapid response unit ready and communicated to the Pentagon that he had a unit ready. General Ham then received the order to stand down. His response was to screw it, he was going to help anyhow. Within 30 seconds to a minute after making the move to respond, his second in command apprehended General Ham and told him that he was now relieved of his command.” GRU analysts in this report state that Obama’s “greatest fear” during the 11 September terrorist attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi was that a strong US Military response would hurt his reelection chances as the American peoples appetite for war has all but disappeared, and he would, also, be open to attacks from his far-left base who remain firmly opposed to further US military actions in the Middle East. As we had, also, reported in our 17 September report “China Warns World War III Being Planned To Oust Obama,” White House fears are growing by the day that Obama is being pushed into a “Total War” scenario by the Pentagon in an action not unlike the situation faced by President John F. Kennedy when he faced off with against the powerful US Air Force General Curtis Lemay during the October, 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. Known well to Obama, this report continues, was the 1962 Pentagon proposal to Kennedy named “Operation Northwoods” that called for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), or other operatives, to commit acts of terrorism in US cities and elsewhere. These acts of terrorism were to be blamed on Cuba in order to create public support for a war against that nation, which had recently become communist under Fidel Castro. Fearing his being faced with a similar Pentagon threat, GRU analysts say in this report, Obama’s reluctance to allow a US military response to the 11 September attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi was due to his not knowing who was really behind it, or what their ultimate objective really was. Obama’s fears, apparently, were confirmed by the Federal Security Service (FSB), and as we reported on in our 9 October report titled “Monsanto “War” Kills US Ambassador To Libya” which blamed the Benghazi attack on the shadowy Italian eco-terror group Il Silvestre. Following the attack on Benghazi, this FSB report further states, the eco-terror group Il Silvestre brutally assassinated British oil executive Nicholas Mockford, 60, who worked for theUS oil giant ExxonMobil, two weeks ago on a street in Brussels, Belgium. Though the links between either the Pentagon or CIA relating to Il Silvestre have yet to be firmly established, this GRU report concludes, it can not be ruled out that further attacks against Obama’s interests by the US Military are not in the offing. Most cryptic in this GRU report, however, was its noting, that based upon the 1962 American movie titled Advise & Consent, and the 1962 novel Seven Days in May (made into a movie in 1964), the warnings to President Kennedy about any American leader daring to challenge the Pentagon would be met with swift and harsh punishment. Kennedy, however, failed to heed these warnings and suffered the consequences. To what Obama’s fate will be, especially should he continue to be in conflict with the Pentagon, it is not known.  What is known, though, is that the American people themselves continue to remain ignorant of the dangers they face as the world around them continues to spin out of control as they continue to rely on lies and half truths spoon fed to them by their vast mainstream propaganda apparatus designed to keep them from knowing any truths at all.

  • WMR  August 22-24, 2011 -- Update 1x -- The CIA's top priority in Libya: Seizing the rendition and torture files and the anti-corruption dossiers Update 1x -- The corporate media has, once again, been caught acting as stenographers for the CIA-backed Libyan Interim National Transitional Council by echoing the rebel reports that Seif al Islam and Muhammad Qaddafi, two of Muammar Qaddafi's sons, were captured.  Seif and Muhammad were not captured and Seif has taken reporters around parts of Tripoli still held by Qaddafi forces. Tripoli has not fallen to the rebels. The corporate media's coverage of the Libyan rebels has, for the entirety of the NATO campaign against Libya, been noted for its one-sided coverage of the war. In the case of Libya, Al Jazeera, owned by Qatar, a NATO coalitionj partner in the war against Libya, has joined the BBC, France 24, Deustche Welle, and the US news networks in acting as virtual propaganda arms for the Libyan rebels, who have made the types of false claims that are reminiscent of "Baghdad Bob," Saddam's spokesman in Iraq, and Ahmad Chalabi, the con-artist who spoke to the anti-Saddam Iraqi National Congress. The International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague also reported the sons' capture, which makes practically every decision the ICC has made on trials of former leaders of Bosnia, Croatia, Serbia, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Cote d'Ivoire, DR Congo, and Liberia subject to extreme suspicion.  Even after the rebels were caught lying, CNN's Anderson Cooper interviewed a young woman who claimed she was in Tripoli and was yearning for Qaddafi's death and her freedom. Of course, the woman could have been as "real" as the young Kuwaiti woman who masqueraded as a nurse who escaped from Iraqi-occupied Kuwait and claimed she saw Iraqi troops throwing babies grabbed from incubators on the floor. The "nurse" was actually the daughter of Kuwait's ambassador to Washington and her nurse credentials were as phony as her story about the incubators. CNN has gone for the same propaganda by interviewing a woman who claims she is held up in a house in Tripoli when most international communications with the Libyan capital having been cut off for months. With Muammar Qaddafi's rule at an end in Libya, the CIA's top priority will be, just as in post-Mubarak Egypt, post-Ben Ali Tunisia; and soon, possibly, in post-Assad Syria, to seize the intelligence and military files illustrating the CIA's close relationship with local intelligence torturers in jailing and subjecting to brutal questioning techniques dozens of Muslims from around the world believed to be linked to "Al Qaeda." The top Libyan official in charge of the Libyan involvement in Mussa Kusa, the one-time Libyan intelligence chief and foreign minister who previously defected to the rebel Interim Transitional National Council (ITNC). Dozens of CIA planes landed at Tripoli's Mitiga International Airport during the rendition program and deposited Muslims and Arabs picked up in worldwide locations for local torture. WMR previously reported that a CIA rendition Boeing 737 operated by CIA front company Keeler and Tate Management of Reno, Nevada, arrived at RAF Northolt, UK on November 14, 2003, from Mitiga, Libya. The plane also arrived in Libya on January 12; March 12; October 28; October 12; October 19, 2003 and February 21; March 7, 9, 16,; April 21, 23; September 7, 2004; and January 7, 16, 18, 19, 2005. The CIA Boeing torture plane flew missions between Mitiga airport in Tripoli and Valletta, Malta; Oxford, UK; Dulles International Airport, Washington; Palma de Mallorca, Spain; Frankfurt, Germany; Morocco; and Glasgow, Scotland. Another CIA rendition aircraft, a Gulfstream IV, leased to the CIA by Phillip H. Morse, a minority partner of the Boston Red Sox, departed Tripoli on May 5, 2004 en route to Tenerife, Canary Islands.  Also a high priority for the CIA is the seizure of the files of the Libyan anti-corruption agency, which document the siphoning of Libyan oil revenues by top officials of the ITNC and were under investigation for fraud by Qaddafi's government before they defected to tbe rebel movement. The anti-corruption agency was one of the first targets of NATO aircraft, a move WMR previously reported was directed by French President Nicolas Sarkozy to prevent Libyan donations to his 2007 presidential campaign from being made public. The sensitive torture and fraud documents held by Qaddafi's government will also be seized to prevent Qaddafi's son and one-time heir apparent Seif al Islam al Qaddafi and his older brother Muhammad Qaddafi and another brother, Al-Saadi al Qaddafi, from using them in their defense at their planned trial before the International Criminal Court. Intelligence files held by Qaddafi's government on the 1988 downing of PanAm 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland and the files on negotiations on the release of accused bomber, former Libyan intelligence agent Abdelbaset al  Megrahi, will also be a high priority for seizure by the CIA. The files, if released to the public, will show that it was Iran, not Libya, that was responsible for the 1988 downing of PanAm 103 and that it was President George H. W. Bush who ordered Libya be blamed to clear the way for a showdown with Iraq's Saddam Hussein by absolving Iran of any blame and ensuring Tehran's neutrality in the Operation Desert Storm showdown with Iraq.  There are now calls for Megrahi to be renditioned to the United States to stand trial for the PanAm 103 bombing. Megrahi was freed by the Scottish government in close consultation with Prime Minister Gordon Brown's government, because he was suffering from cancer and was believed to be terminally ill. However, it is believed that the deal was cut to give British Petroleum expanded access to Libyan oil fields and guarantee Libyan bailout funds for failed British banks. Libyan documents on the British-Libyan deals are also highly sought by the CIA and Britain's MI-6 intelligence service. A secret report that alleges that Megrahi was innocent of carrying out the PanAm 103 bombing is due to be released soon by the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission (SCCRC). New Jersey senators Frank Lautenberg and Robert Menendez, both recipients of large amounts of Israeli campaign cash through the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), have called for Megrahi to be extradited by the Libyan rebel government to stand trial in the United States for Lockerbie. However, Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond stands by his decision to free Megrahi and any move by the United States to second-guess Scotland may result in frayed relations between the Scottish government and the United States, especially seen as important with Scotland's government striving for independence from Britain and perpetual basing rights at Uig, around the old U.S. submarine base at Holy Loch a potential casualty of a fracture in relations between Washington and Edinburgh. In the record of the CIA's sordid operations in the Middle East, Operation Desert Storm led to Operation Iraqi Freedom and finally, Operation Mermaid Dawn, the capture of Tripoli by Libyan rebel forces. One of the casualties of Mermaid Dawn will be the continued secrecy of the power politics that led to the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq and now NATO's proxies' invasion and occupation of Libya.
  • From Newsboy Post safe copy page Two sources in Chicago diplomatic circles identify Ambassador Chris Stevens as gay (meaning State Department foolishly sent gay man to be ambassador to Libya) </p> <p>By Kevin DuJan (Openly gay writer) -- Today I went out into the field here in Chicago looking to talk to some of the striking teachers but no one in a red-shirt was anywhere to be found (or, if they were wearing one, they had nothing to do with the teachers’ union strike). A journalist friend of mine asked me to nose around and see if I could uncover anything about slain Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was rumored to be gay. A former “roommate” of Stevens by the name of Austin Tichenor lives and works in Chicago and while making calls to friends of mine in the theater world who know him I also thought to check some sources with the city who deal with the State Department and foreign dignitaries when they are in town. Of course, they’ve all been talking about Ambassador Stevens’ murder by Muslims in Libya: and all of them are incredulous that the State Department sent a gay man to be ambassador to a Muslim country. News reports continue to indicate that the Muslims who murdered Stevens also raped him repeatedly, before and after his death. I was told by friends in the City’s protocol office to go over to the Second Story Bar in downtown Chicago, just off Michigan Avenue, because it’s where a lot of gay guys who work for both the city and the consulates go after work. Chicago is home to a great number of consulates, including the Polish, Chinese, and Serbian consulates amongst others. I happened to luck out when the bartender working, who is a friend, tipped me off that a man in a suit talking to some other foreign-looking types worked at the Serbian consulate a few doors up the street towards the lake. Second Story Bar is literally on the second floor of a nondescript building whose ground level houses some sort of Thai restaurant. A psychic’s office is prominently advertised on the door leading to a steep flight of stairs and a blank green steel door that hides the tucked-away bar. The place has the feel of a speakeasy, with exposed bricks and battered plaster on the walls and an oddball collection of black and white photographs and pig-themed folk art scattered over drinkers’ heads in any exposed space. I’m forever perplexed that actual reporters don’t camp out in these sorts of places because great scoops are very easy to find if you just go in there and ask questions. The Serbian consulate employee identified himself to me as “Dino” and wouldn’t give me any more of a name than that, but told me it was no secret that Chris Stevens was gay and that “it was stupid to send him to Libya as the ambassador when he was a known homosexual”. Dino explained in great detail that the brutal sodomizing of Stevens’ corpse was something that Muslims do to show the “utmost disrespect to the body” and that this is “a great insult in Islam” reserved for homosexuals. ”It is like making him a woman in death and he will be a woman now after life” the Serbian explained to me. There’s a good chance this guy was Muslim too, and gay, which makes my head spin more than a little since he seemed to have no anger at all in his voice that Muslims in Libya assassinated the American ambassador and then sodomized his corpse. “He should not have gone there” was the general consensus from this man. You won’t hear any of this in the media, no doubt, but in Chicago’s diplomatic circles at least there is no doubt that Chris Stevens was gay and that pretty much anyone in the diplomatic world knew that. That includes the Libyans who were hired as security at the consulate in Benghazi who betrayed Ambassador Stevens and assisted in his murder. Meanwhile, the White House is ignoring the fact that a gay ambassador to a Muslim country was murdered and they are in fact still pretending that all of this is about some obscure movie about Muhammad and has nothing at all to do with Barack Obama repeatedly and vociferously spiking the football over killing Osama bin Laden (which took place all throughout the Democrats’ convention last week). People here in Chicago are very openly talking about Chris Stevens being gay…and yet he was sent to be the ambassador to Libya at a time when Muslims were toppling governments and introducing radical Islamists into power. Wikipedia Christopher Stevens  and Facebook Austin Tichenor  Norcal blog, Denver Post  pic

 WMR  A 9/11 anniversary Israeli provocation     "Innocence of Muslims," September 12-13, 2012 --
There is very little difference between Los Angeles-based Israeli real estate developer Sam Bacile and the five "dancing Israelis" who were arrested by New Jersey police in the hours after the 9/11 attack. The infamous "dancing Israelis" were discovered to have Arab-style clothing in their Urban Moving System Systems van, searched by New Jersey police and FBI agents hours after the Israelis were witnessed at Liberty State Park in Jersey City "high-fiving" each other after they filmed the first aircraft strike the North Tower of the World Trade Center.

On the 11th anniversary of 9./11, Bacile released on Youtube a 13-minute trailer for a two hour anti-Muslim short movie, titled "Innocence of Muslims," depicting the Prophet Mohammed as insane, a fraud, and as a sex pervert. A donkey is portrayed as the "first Muslim animal." Israel's signature in the production of the movie is clear. Israeli propagandists often use animals to depict those most revered by Muslims and Christians. The recent painting of graffiti stating "Jesus in a monkey" on a Trappist monastery in Jerusalem has not been fully investigated by the Israeli government, which includes in its coalition Orthodox Jewish political parties that are vehemently anti-Christian and Muslim.

In an interview with The Times of Israel, Bacile echoed the anti-Christian nature of Netanyahu's political allies in stating, "The main problem is I am the first one to put on the screen someone who is (portraying) Muhammad. It makes them mad,” Bacile said. “But we have to open the door. After 9/11 everybody should be in front of the judge, even Jesus, even Muhammad.” Bacile further riled up Muslims with his statement: "Islam is a cancer, period."

Anti-American riots broke out in Egypt and Libya and rioters stormed the U.S. embassy in Cairo and the American consulate in Benghazi. U.S. ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, who formerly was the U.S. representative to the Libyan National Transition Council that overthrew Muammar Qaddafi, was killed along with four other U.S. diplomatic personnel, by rioters.

An on-line statement posted by the U.S. embassy in Cairo stated the embassy "condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims — as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.” Under pressure from Republicans, the Obama White House has disavowed embassy's statement. GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney criticized the embassy statement as being "disgraceful" and suggested that it sympathized with those who stormed the U.S. embassy.

Bacile said he received financing for the movie from 100 Jewish donors. It is not known whether the donors included Las Vegas casino tycoon Sheldon Adelson. The gambling magnate has pumped tens of millions of dollars into the campaigns of Republican candidates, including the pro-Israel Newt Gingrich and Romney, Binyamin Netanyahu's friend and one-time colleague at the Boston Consulting Group. The release of the movie clip on YouTube comes amid the refusal of the White House to meet with Netanyahu during his visit to the United States at the end of the month. Netanyahu has attempted to box in the Obama administration by claiming Obama has pressured Israel not to launch a pre-election military attack on Iran.

The movie's production costs were around $5 million. Bacile is unapologetic about the consequences of his movie. Bacile blamed the attacks and deaths of American diplomats on poor U.S. embassy security. Bacile claims he doesn;t know who dubbed his video clip into Arabic. Israel's immense propaganda apparatus is more than capable of translating English into Arabic and vice versa, often incorrectly in order to achieve maximum propaganda value.

The film's production also involves Florida "pastor" Terry Jones, the infamous self-styled Christian evangelist who threatened to burn the Koran in 2010. Jones, the head of the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Florida, canceled his plans to burn Islam's holy book after the commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, General David Petraeus, said the act would endanger U.S. military forces in Afghanistan. However, anti-American demonstrations broke out throughout Afghanistan and at the U.S. embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia. However, in 2011, Jones did burn the Koran at his Gainesville "church" after he held a "trial" for the book.

In 2005, the Danish paper Jyllands Posten published a number of cartoons that irreverently depicted the Prophet Mohammed, including one that showed Mohammed wearing a turban and throwing a bomb. Anti-Danish and anti-Western riots broke out around the world and the violence resulted in a number of deaths in Afghanistan, India, and Benghazi, Libya. On January 5, 2010, WMR reported: "The editor who was instrumental in publishing the cartoons is the cultural editor of the Aarhus-based Jyllands-Posten, Flemming Rose, who worked in Washington, DC as a correspondent of the Copenhagen newspaper Berlingske Tidende. He has been a habitué of the neocon citadel in Washington, the American Enterprise Institute (AEI). Rose has denied being Jewish."

Bacile stated, "Islam is a cancer, period." Israeli propaganda outlets have also tried to suggest that the anti-Islam movie was partly the work of Egyptian Coptic Christians, which is clearly an attempt to stoke the flames of inter-religious warfare in Egypt between the majority Muslim population and the country's 10 percent Coptic minority. Leaders of Egypt's Copts have denied any association with the Israeli propaganda movie, although Bacile's propaganda film involves Morris Sadek, an expatriate Egyptian Copt.

Romney and other Republicans wasted no time in attacking President Obama in what appears to be a replay of the 1979-80 U.S. hostage situation at the American embassy in Tehran. The Iran hostage situation was used by the Reagan-Bush campaign to embarrass President Jimmy Carter and contributed to Carter's defeat in a landslide in the 1980s presidential election. It was later discovered that members of the Reagan campaign, including George H.W. Bush, secretly negotiated with Iran to keep the American hostages until after the November presidential election.

Adelson funds a number of Israeli media outlets that are playing up Obama's perceived "weakness" in dealing with the anti-American riots in Cairo and Benghazi. Chief among the outlets is the pro-Netanyahu paper Israel HaYom, which is distributed free throughout Israel. In its coverage of the anti-U.S. riots in Egypt and Cairo, Adelson's paper tried to link Bacile's movie to anti-Muslim Christians instead of Israel. A September 12 article in the newspaper stated: "A group of women in black veils and robes that left only their eyes exposed chanted 'Worshippers of the Cross, leave the Prophet Muhammad alone.'"

Abraham Foxman, the head of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which often pressures YouTube to remove video clips that are considered anti-Semitic, has been silent on the "Innocence of Muslims" movie and its Jewish financial backers.

One person who is not silent is Kristen Breitweiser, whose husband was killed in the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center. In a September 12 article in the Huffington Post, titled, "Libyan Consulate Attack: Who's to Blame?" Breitweiser asks the question that many are posing: "Who are the alleged 'over 100 Jewish donors' who financed this film? Will they be sending their condolences to the families of the four Americans killed because of their film? Will they in any way be publicly held accountable for their support of this film and its message?" Breitweiser's question is important. Revealing the list of the Jewish donors will go a long way in identifying the culprits behind this most recent Israeli provocation, timed to coincide with the 9/11 anniversary. Breitweiser points to the obvious element of the anti-Muslim provocation: "In effect, in my opinion, somebody 'pushed' this film out there to incite and spread hatred and rage in the Middle East on September 11th, and the identity of the person or organization behind this plot should be exposed and held accountable."

WMR  Did Romney and Netanyahu conspire in "October Surprise?"   October 15-16, 2012
There is an increasing belief in some diplomatic and intelligence quarters that the September attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya and the killing of U.S. ambassador Christoper Stevens and three or four other Americans was an outside-supported false flag operation designed to deliver an "October Surprise" crisis to the Obama administration and help the political fortunes of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. In fact, based on Romney's own past statement concerning an "October Surprise," which refers to the U.S. embassy in Tehran hostage situation that helped to sink President Jimmy Carter's re-election in 1980, there is a belief that Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, a Romney friend and supporter, used Israeli intelligence assets to help stage the Benghazi consulate attack in order to deliver to Romney the October Surprise that the Republican nominee was quick to exploit. Backing up Romney in the "October Surprise" meme were all the usual neocon suspects, including George W. Bush speechwriter John Fund in an article for the National Review, as well as The Wall Street Journal and Politico.

Like Carter before him, Obama is being accused by his enemies of presiding over an intelligence failure in Libya. The neo-cons and Romney are trying to, in a very Karl Rove manner, use Obama's supposed strength in achieving foreign policy victories, as a weakness.

The Obama administration maintained the attack on the U.S. office in Benghazi was spontaneous and no different from the eruption of demonstrations against U.S. embassies around the Muslim world that arose from a video trailer on the Internet that depicted the Prophet Mohammed in a blasphemous manner. The production of the video was at first claimed to have been ther work of 100 "Jewish" funders, a claim that was immediately denounced by Israel's media overlords in the United States. Although the video's production, called "The Innocence of Muslims," bore the fingerprints of a few expatriate Egyptian Coptic Christians in the United States, it also involved significant support from Jewish quarters in southern California. 

On September 12, 2012, WMR reported: "There is very little difference between Los Angeles-based Israeli real estate developer Sam Bacile who originally claimed to be Jewish himself and born in Israel] and the five 'dancing Israelis' who were arrested by New Jersey police in the hours after the 9/11 attack. The infamous 'dancing Israeli'" were discovered to have Arab-style clothing in their Urban Moving System Systems van, searched by New Jersey police and FBI agents hours after the Israelis were witnessed at Liberty State Park in Jersey City 'high-fiving' each other after they filmed the first aircraft strike the North Tower of the World Trade Center . . . In an interview with The Times of Israel, Bacile echoed the anti-Christian nature of Netanyahu's political allies in stating, 'The main problem is I am the first one to put on the screen someone who is (portraying) Muhammad. It makes them mad,' Bacile said. 'But we have to open the door. After 9/11 everybody should be in front of the judge, even Jesus, even Muhammad.' Bacile further riled up Muslims with his statement: 'Islam is a cancer, period. On the 11th anniversary of 9/11, Bacile released on Youtube a 13-minute trailer for a two hour anti-Muslim short movie, titled 'Innocence of Muslims,' depicting the Prophet Mohammed as insane, a fraud, and as a sex pervert.'" 

Additionally, the movie that provided the catalyst and "cover" for the storming of the Benghazi office was reportedly screened for at least one night in the Jewish-owned and very run-down Vine Theater on Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California. One of the people who assisted in the production of the movie was real estate developer Jimmy Israel, who claimed to have been raised Jewish but converted to Buddhist. With Bacile, also known as Sam Basselley and Nakoula Bassely Nakoula, claiming to be an Israeli Jew and an Egyptian Copt, the Innocence of Muslims operation involves a number of artful religious conversos. There were also reports that some of the gay porn actors hired for the film, including beefy muscleman Tim Dax, were closely linked to Jewish porn industry operators in southern California.

It is no secret that a number of wealthy right-wing Jews were pushing for a "Jimmy Carter Strategy," namely an operation to paint Obama as weak on foreign policy as Carter appeared after the failed U.S. hostage rescue mission in Iran and subsequent protracted negotiations with Iran to release the hostages from the U.S. embassy in Tehran. It is known that members of the Reagan campaign secretly met with Ayatollah Khomeini's representatives to forestall an "October Surprise-in-reverse" agreement with the Carter administration. The hostages were released as Ronald Reagan was taking the oath of office on January 20, 1981. It was "mission accomplished" for the criminal conspirators -- chiefly George H W Bush and William Casey.    ...   Someone who knows all about false flag operations, former Pentagon comptroller, rabbi,  dual U.S.-Israeli citizen, Project for the New American Century (PNAC) signatory, and Romney foreign policy adviser Dov Zakheim, told the Zionist-owned U.S. News & World Report that "Libya was the "October Surprise" that has refocused Romney's foreign policy message." Zakheim is believed by many to have been involved in the operation to remotely pilot the four hijacked passenger planes on September 11, 2001 and vector them to their intended or actual targets. Before taking over as the Pentagon's chief financial officer, Zakheim, an ordained rabbi, had been vice president of Systems Planning Corporation (SPC), which manufactures the Command Transmitter Systems that allows for the remote control of aircraft and bypassing of on board pilot controls.   ...   Patrick Clawson of the Zionist Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP), recently suggested a false flag attack on U.S. targets in the Middle East to trick the United States into believing Iran was behind the attack. Clawson demonstrated the Zionist and Talmudist commitment to engaging in false flag attacks to achieve larger political goals. If Israel was behind the attack on the Benghazi consulate, it would have used Sayeret Matkal deep penetration behind-the-lines commandos, Arabic-speaking Libyan or Yemeni Jews, who may have been directing Saudi Arabian-funded "Al Qaeda" Salafists to carry out the actual assault and the killing of the Americans, with Stevens being the top prize for later maximum political exploitation by Israel's media machine and Romney. The Mossad has, since 1981, been involved in Libyan covert operations, the year it helped form with the CIA the anti-Qaddafi National Front for the Salvation of Libya in 1981. The joint CIA-Mossad operations were spurred on by deputy director for operations Max Hugel, a Casey crony and a Zionist, who was later forced from his CIA job because of issues relating to securities fraud (in fact, the financial charges were largely a cover to enable the CIA to fire someone who was seen as constantly compromising CIA secrets to the Israelis).  ...   Chiming right in after the Benghazi attack was Netanyahu, who blamed the deaths of the diplomatic personnel on "U.S. "weakness." Netanyahu was already involved in a protracted battle with the Obama administration over a U.S. and/or Israeli military attack on Iran, a move Obama did not support. In fact, Obama's Jimmy Carter "trap" may have been laid with the original U.S. intervention in Libya last year. Obama was swayed to intervene to help overthrow the anti-Islamist Muammar Qaddafi by people like Samantha Power, the wife of then-White House propaganda czar Cass Sunstein, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Opposed to the Libya intervention were Vice President Joe Biden -- who has been forced to bail Obama out of his "deer in the headlights" debate stance with Romney -- and then-Defense Secretary Robert Gates. Of course, championing the U.S. intervention in Libya was Netanyahu and Zionist provocateurs like Bernard-Henri Levy of France who acted as a liaison between Libyan rebels, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, and Netanyahu. Obama walked into a Libya trap custom-made by the Zionists and neo-cons, two political cancers that are virtually inseparable.

  • Sott.net  The American desire is to wage a war in North Waziristan against the Haqqani / Afghan Taliban networks. Pakistan's army is not willing to do that. The Americans tried to use Mullah Barader to create serious mistrust and hatred between the Afghan Taliban and Pakistan's army. That failed when Barader was not handed over to US and Khalid Khawaja unknowingly became a major setback for the Americans when he took a court order against Barader's extradition. Khalid was trapped and Hamid Mir was used to mislead the TTP into assassinating KK. But in the end, the US plan of waging a war in North Waziristan fizzles out.    ...   Now a backup plan was required to create reasons to initiate a war into North Waziristan. - Here enters Faisal Shehzad - a false flag operation to implicate the Pakistani Taliban and then threaten and force Pakistan to "do more" in North Waziristan! Another Pakistani is arrested in Chile in the US embassy with traces of explosives on his luggage and clothes. More Pakistanis are being arrested and a massive media disinformation war is being launched that all global terrorism is emerging from the Pakistani tribal pocket of North Waziristan and the ISI/army is either hands-in-gloves with the Taliban or not willing to do more.     ...    So now, you understand the tone, language and demeanor of Hillary and the US media over Faisal Shehzad! Despite the fact that US army Generals have confirmed that Faisal had no links with anyone in FATA.     ...     Pakistan was being setup for a possible geopolitical disaster. Allah protected Pakistan. The US and Indians through their assets in the media and in terrorist groups continue to kick dust and deceive the world and the Pakistani nation. But now, this time at least, their game is exposed.
  • January 13, 2010 -- WayneMadsenReport  Blackwater/XE behind terrorist bombings in Asia and Africa?  WMR's intelligence sources in Asia and Europe are reporting that the CIA contractor firm XE Services, formerly Blackwater, has been carrying out "false flag" terrorist attacks in Afghanistan, Somalia, the Sinkiang region of China, Pakistan, Iran, and Iraq, in some cases with the assistance of Israeli Mossad and Indian Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) personnel.   ...   Fingers are being pointed at Blackwater/XE and Mossad operatives for the motorbike bomb in Tehran that killed Tehran University nuclear physicist Dr. Moussad Ali-Mohammadi. On January 12, a bomb attached to a motorbike outside of Ali-Mohammadi's house went off while the professor was leaving for work. The bomb, which instantly killed to pro-reform Ali-Mohammadi, was remotely triggered by a team that was later linked to a U.S.-base group called the Iran Monarchy Association, which favors restoring the son of the late Shah, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi II, to Iran's "Peacock Throne." The Iran Monarchy Association is believed to be a CIA front organization.    ...    There are also reports that Blackwater/XE personnel are in Somalia and have carried out terrorist bombings in Mogadishu that have been blamed by the United States and the puppet transitional government of Somalia on the Al-Shabab Islamic irregular forces as a pretext for a wider Blackwater role in the country.    ...    Blackwater is also believed to be transiting between Somalia, the breakaway republic of Somaliland, and Yemen. WMR has learned of Blackwater counter-insurgency personnel working alongside Yemeni security forces in joint operations against Huthi rebels in the predominantly-Shi'a region of northern Yemen. U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Admiral Michael Mullen recently stated that there were no plans to station U.S. troops in Yemen but he studiously avoided mentioning a counter-insurgency role for U.S. private military contractors.    ...    Blackwater maritime security personnel have also been active in the Gulf of Aden region against so-called Somali "pirates," who are, in reality, Somali fishermen who are exacting tribute because of over-fishing of Somali waters by foreign fishing fleets and the dumping of toxic waste in Somali waters.    ....    A number of terrorist bombings in Pakistan have been blamed by Pakistani Islamic leaders on Blackwater, Mossad, and RAW. Blackwater has been accused of hiring young Pakistanis in Peshawar to carry out false flag bombings that are later blamed on the Pakistani Taliban, also known as Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan. One such bombing took place during the Ashura procession in Karachi last month. The terrorist attacks are carried out by a secret Blackwater-XE/CIA/Joint Special Operations Command forward operating base in Karachi. The XE Services component was formerly known as Blackwater Select, yet another subsidiary in a byzantine network of shell and linked companies run by Blackwater/Xe on behalf of the CIA and the Pentagon.      ...    On December 3, 2009, the Pakistani newspaper Nawa-i-Waqt reported: "Vast land near the Tarbela dam has also been given to the Americans where they have established bases for their army and air forces. There, the Indian RAW Research and Analysis Wing] and Israeli Mosad are working in collaboration with the CIA to carry out extremist activities in Pakistan."    ...   Blackwater/XE is also thought to be carrying out terrorist roadside bombings in Algeria, once the exclusive domain of the mercenary French Foreign Legion, to justify a greater American security presence in Algeria, ostensibly to protect natural gas pipelines in the country.    ...    Blackwater/XE and agents of the Mossad and RAW are also reportedly active in sponsoring Islamist terrorist groups active in Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and the Xinjiang-Uighur Autonomous Region (XUAR) of China for a variety of reasons. For the United States, the operations are to ensure those nation's support for the U.S. "counter-terrorism" operations in central Asia. For India, there is a desire to pin blame for support for Uighur and other central Asian Islamist guerrilla movements on Pakistan in order to drive a wedge between Beijing and Islamabad. For Israel, the support helps in continuing close security relationships between Tel Aviv and Beijing and the Muslim central Asian "stans."    ...    RAW has also been smuggling radical Islamic literature to Uighurs in Xinjiang. All of the literaure has the imprimatur of Pakistan.

  • WMR  September 13, 2010 -- Blackwater./Xe cells conducting false flag terrorist attacks in Pakistan     ...     WMR has learned from a deep background source that Xe Services, the company formerly known as Blackwater, has been conducting false flag terrorist attacks in Pakistan that are later blamed on the entity called "Pakistani Taliban."      ...    Only recently did the US State Department designate the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), also known as the Pakistani Taliban, a terrorist group. The group is said by the State Department to be an off-shoot of the Afghan Taliban, which had links to "Al Qaeda" before the 9/11 attacks on the United States TTP's leader is Hakimullah Mehsud, said to be 30-years old and operating from Pakistan's remote tribal region with an accomplice named Wali Ur Rehman. In essence, this new team of Mehsud and Rehman appears to be the designated replacement for Osama Bin Laden and Ayman Zawahiri as the new leaders of the so-called "Global Jihad" against the West.      ...     However, it is Xe cells operating in Karachi, Peshawar, Islamabad and other cities and towns that have, according to our source who witnessed the U.S.-led false flag terrorist operations in Pakistan. Bombings of civilians is the favored false flag event for the Xe team and are being carried out under the orders of the CIA.     ...    However, the source is now under threat from the FBI and CIA for revealing the nature of the false flag operations in Pakistan. If the source does not agree to cooperate with the CIA and FBI, with an offer of a salary, the threat of false criminal charges being brought for aiding and abetting terrorism looms over the source.     ....    The Blackwater/Xe involvement in terrorist attacks in Pakistan have been confirmed by the former head of the Inter Services Intelligence (ISI), General Hamid Gul, according to another source familiar with the current Xe covert operations. In addition, Pakistani ex-Army Chief of Staff, General Mirza Aslam Beg, reportedly claimed that while serving as president, General Pervez Musharraf approved Blackwater carrying out terrorist operations in Pakistan. Blackwater has been accused of smuggling weapons and munitions into Pakistan.    ...    Earlier this year WMR reported that "intelligence sources in Asia and Europe are reporting that the CIA contractor firm XE Services, formerly Blackwater, has been carrying out 'false flag' terrorist attacks in Afghanistan, Somalia, the Sinkiang region of China, Pakistan, Iran, and Iraq, in some cases with the assistance of Israeli Mossad and Indian Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) personnel . . . A number of terrorist bombings in Pakistan have been blamed by Pakistani Islamic leaders on Blackwater, Mossad, and RAW. Blackwater has been accused of hiring young Pakistanis in Peshawar to carry out false flag bombings that are later blamed on the Pakistani Taliban, also known as Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan. One such bombing took place during the Ashura procession in Karachi last month. The terrorist attacks allegedly are carried out by a secret Blackwater-XE/CIA/Joint Special Operations Command forward operating base in Karachi. The XE Services component was formerly known as Blackwater Select, yet another subsidiary in a byzantine network of shell and linked companies run by Blackwater/Xe on behalf of the CIA and the Pentagon. On December 3, 2009, the Pakistani newspaper Nawa-i-Waqtreported: 'Vast land near the Tarbela dam has also been given to the Americans where they have established bases for their army and air forces. There, the Indian RAW Research and Analysis Wing] and Israeli Mossad are working in collaboration with the CIA to carry out extremist activities in Pakistan.'"     ...     The bombing of a CIA base in Khost, Afghanistan last December was blamed on the TTP but may have actually involved the covert Xe/CIA program to stage false flag attacks and something went drastically wrong with the operation that resulted in the deaths of seven CIA personnel, including the Khost station chief. The TTP was also linked to the failed Times Square "bombing" last May.     ...     Responsibility for the recent bomb attack of a pro-Palestine Shi'a rally in Quetta that killed 54 people was claimed by the Pakistan Taliban, but it was actually carried out by one of the Xe covert cells in the country, acting in concert with the CIA, Israeli Mossad, and Indian Research and Analysis Wing (RAW). The ultimate goal is to destabilize Pakistan to the point where it has no choice but to allow the Western powers to secure its nuclear weapons and remove them from the country in a manner similar to the procurement by the West of South Africa's nuclear weapons prior to the stepping down of the white minority government in the early 1990s.     ....     WMR has been informed that any American, whether or not he or she holds a security clearance, is subject to U.S. national security prohibitions from discussing the U.S.- sponsored terrorist attacks in Pakistan. In one case, a threat was made against an individual who personally witnessed the Xe/CIA terrorist operations but is now threatened, along with family members.   and see Online Journal   Haqeeqat Webster Tarpley article, Dark Politics  Raw Story cached   RebelNews suicide-bombings-hits-kabul-blackwater-xe-thought-responsible, NoLiesRadio GORDON DUFF: AMERICANS BELIEVED INVOLVED IN PAKISTAN AIR CRASH, HIJACKING,  Federal Jack   Redacted News Is Israel Running the Taliban?   DocuDharma Is Blackwater behind the terror attacks in Pakistan?  Veterans Today  gordon-duff-americans-believed-involved-in-pakistan-air-crash-hijacking,  Afpakwar   Mumbai Attacks Were a ‘False Flag’ Operation — Congress Functionary,  OmairkHalid  Black water/XE behind terrorist bombings in Asia and Africa?  Democracy Now Blackwater’s Secret War in Pakistan: Jeremy Scahill Reveals Private Military Firm Operating in Pakistan Under Covert Assassination and Kidnapping Program, WW4Report Blackwater black ops behind Pakistan terror wave?

European Phoenix -- Informed sources in the Qusayr village in Homs say the terrorists crossed into Syria from the Lebanese border and that they have taken positions in the suburbs of the restive city. ... The New York Times in their article, "C.I.A. Said to Aid in Steering Arms to Syrian Opposition," confirms what many have already long known - that the West, led by the US and its Gulf State proxies, have been arming terrorists, particularly the Muslim Brotherhood, while berating the Syrian government for "violating" a UN mandated ceasefire and for "failing to protect" its population. The Muslim Brotherhood has been combated by nations across the Arab World to stem the tide of their sectarian extremism, violence, and their targeted erosion of secular nation-states. Ironically, the US which has claimed to have been fighting the forces of sectarian extremism and "terrorism" for over a decade now, have been revealed as the primary enabler of the most violent and extreme terrorist organizations in the world. These include, in addition to the Muslim Brotherhood, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) in Libya, Baluch terrorists in Pakistan, and the Mujahideen-e-Khalq (MEK) currently based in Iraq and being used as proxies against Iran.
    The New York Times claims that, "the C.I.A. officers have been in southern Turkey for several weeks, in part to help keep weapons out of the hands of fighters allied with Al Qaeda or other terrorist groups, one senior American official said," a unsubstantiated claim that was similarly made in Libya before Al Qaeda flags were run up poles in Benghazi by rebels flush with NATO cash and arms used to collapse the government of Muammar Qaddafi. In fact, it is confirmed that Libyan LIFG rebels, led by Al Qaeda commander Abdul Hakim Belhaj, have now made their way by the hundreds to Syria (and here).

In addition to being a fascinating tale of intrigue and deception, the Ali Mohamed story has important lessons about vulnerabilities in the personnel security system.  Wikipedia Ali_Mohamed, (born June 3, 1952) is a double agent who worked for both the CIA and Egyptian Islamic Jihad simultaneously, reporting on the workings of each for the benefit of the other. He came to the United States working as a translator for Ayman al-Zawahiri, who toured California mosques to raise money to fight the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. While there, Zawahiri encouraged him to infiltrate the United States, to whom he later presented himself as defecting. Since he simply walked into the CIA office in Cairo and asked to speak to the station chief and offered his services, the Americans assumed he was an Egyptian spy, but nevertheless recruited him to be a junior intelligence officer. 2] When tasked to infiltrate a mosque with ties to Hezbollah, he simply informed the leadership he was an American spy intending to collect information; since a loyal American spy was also in the congregation, he reported Mohamed's bizarre behaviour to the CIA, who dismissed him and sought to ban him from entering the United States. 2] Ironically however, he was simply picked up by the Special Forces in the American army, who sent him to the Special Warfare school and encouraged him to pursue a doctorate in Islamic Studies and teach courses on the Middle East.  more

Debbie Schlussel Jill Khawam Kelley
 Jill Khawam Kelley was the hand-picked lobbyist for Muslim nations and their agenda at Central Command. Kelley, who is part of the soap opera that the Petraeus scandal spawned, was in charge of hosting parties and social events to push the Islamic agenda of Middle Eastern countries. She was seen by Muslim Mid-East nations, especially Hezbollah-controlled Lebanon, as the “go to” woman to push their agenda on top American generals. She was a lobbyist for their cause and, yet, wasn’t required to register as a lobbyist, like all others who host lavish parties for top American officials, like she did, in an attempt to influence U.S. policy in the Middle East. Complete article below: Kelley, a dhimmi Christian Arab of Lebanese descent, was well known in the Muslim Arab embassies of Washington for doing their bidding and hosting their parties at and near MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, where our nation’s top generals are based. It’s where Central Command–the U.S. Armed Forces’ leadership over wars and military personnel Middle East–is headquartered. When a friend of mine said that he thought the financially troubled Khawam sisters, Kelley and Natalie Khawam, were spies for Lebanon and the Arab world, I originally expressed skepticism. I believed that these twin sisters with obvious twin nose jobs were merely bimbo gold diggers in slutty outfits, who used their Delilah ways to first nab rich husbands, and then nab idiotic top American generals to participate in Lifetime-Channel-worthy bitter child custody disputes. But then I learned that Ms. Kelley, who was until this week under the radar, was quietly involved in pushing the agenda of Muslim Arab nations on our nation’s top generals with whom she’d grown close by design. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that Ms. Kelley got her hooks into our two top generals in the Middle East, David Petraeus and John Allen. I’m now convinced that my friend, lawyer Gary Welsh of Advance Indiana, who has excellent instincts, was correct. I’ve long written about the infiltration of Central Command at MacDill Air Base in Tampa by Islamic terrorists. Islamic Jihad founder and convicted Islamic terrorist, Sami Al-Arian, was an instructor on the Middle East to our top generals at MacDill Air Force Base AT THE VERY SAME TIME that he was planning mergers and terrorist attacks in Israel with “the brothers of HAMAS” and while he was bringing Muslim illegal alien Islamic terrorists to the U.S. Al-Arian’s friend and co-conspirator, Ramadan Abdullah Shallah (one of those Al-Arian brought here), who became the Secretary-General of the worldwide Islamic Jihad terrorist group, was also a lecturer at MacDill and also taught our top generals his poisonous views on the Middle East and Israel. FBI and INS agents who investigated Shallah and Al-Arian were alarmed at the influence these two top Islamic terrorists had over CentCom. They were also alarmed to find many books on the inner workings of MacDill in Shallah’s house when they raided it. So when people ask me how I think these women were able to insert themselves into top generals’ lives and topple them (along with, apparently, the men they married), I think back to the fact that our top generals gladly allowed top terrorists to infiltrate Central Command as alleged “professors” on the Middle East. And when generals like Petraeus and Norman Schwarzkopf, Jr. openly attack Israel and America’s relationship with Israel, people like Jill Khawam Kelley and Al-Arian and Shallah are the reason why. Khawam Kelley isn’t an innocent socialite. She’s an agent of influence for Arab Muslim nations. The Washington Post reports: A military officer who is a former member of Petraeus’s staff said Kelley was a “self-appointed” go-between for Central Command officers with Lebanese and other Middle Eastern officials. . . . At the parties Jill Kelley hosted at her Tampa mansion, guests were frequently treated to the indulgences of celebrity life: valet parking, string quartets on the lawn, premium cigars and champagne, and caviar-laden buffets. The main recipients of the largess were military brass — including some of the nation’s most senior commanders — based at nearby MacDill Air Force Base. Kelley flaunted her access to these military VIPs. . . . The investigations of Petraeus’s and Allen’s actions, nonetheless, have raised questions about how Kelley, a woman with no formal military role, cultivated such close ties to two of the nation’s most revered generals. One former aide to Allen, who like others spoke on the condition of anonymity given the sensitivity of the case, suggested that Kelley had become a de facto social ambassador among high-ranking personnel at MacDill, home to the U.S. Central Command and Special Operations Command. The Wall Street Journal reports: Middle Eastern diplomats in Washington also knew Ms. Kelley, who came from a Lebanese immigrant family and who helped arrange social activities when dignitaries from the region visited Tampa, diplomats said. She also sometimes attended parties at Washington embassies. I guarantee you that Jill Khawam Kelley wasn’t hosting visits from dignitaries from Israel. And, other than those from Israel, every single “Middle Eastern diplomat” in Washington is a Muslim, most of them Muslim Arabs. And all of them Muslims with an agenda that is anti-Israel and anti-Western. And definitely not in America’s best interests. They come to Tampa for one reason and one reason only–to ingratiate themselves with the top military brass at CentCom at MacDill. And Jill Khawam Kelley was their social director in that mission. Kelley’s sister, Natalie Khawam, was married to a top Bush administration official, Grayson Wolfe, Director of Broader Middle East Initiatives and Iraqi Reconstruction at the Export-Import Bank of the United States, and frequently accompanied him on trips to the Middle East, including to Pakistan. Before that position, Wolfe was the Bush-installed Manager of the Private Sector Development Office of the Coalition Provisional Authority in Baghdad, Iraq. How many of the Khawam’s insider Arab Muslim friends did he give sweetheart contracts to? Before It’s News has more and asks more questions about the consulting and contracting firm that Wolfe now heads. Although they are now embroiled in a bitter custody fight over their son, you have to wonder what influence Khawam had on him and what was done in the Middle East. She recently sued her former employer, a Jewish lawyer, Barry Cohen, but gave up after her lawsuit was shown to be phony. Cohen struck back and found that Khawam engaged in bankruptcy fraud. My friend wasn’t so far-fetched when he insisted the Khawam chicks are modern day Mata Haris for the Muslim Arabs. Just look at what they’ve accomplished for the Muslim Mid-East, all of it under the radar . . . until Paula Broadwell had the stupidity to send her threatening e-mails and Jill Khawam Kelley had the stupidity of complaining about it to shirtless FBI agent Frederic Humphries.

In accord with the plan worked out by Albert Pike, and summarized by William Guy Carr, the plan for WWII “was to be fomented by using the differences between Fascists and Political Zionists. This was to be fought so that Nazism would be destroyed and the power of Political Zionism increased so that the sovereign state of Israel could be established in Palestine.”  Therefore, the harsh terms imposed by the agents of the Illuminati at the Treaty of Versailles, that ruined Germany financially, were to set the stage for World War II.
