CIA Double Agent? CIA and British Intelligence Created Ruse Known as al-Qaeda
“The agent, who was in Yemen, was liaising with the CIA before handing the device over to intelligence services,” reports the Daily Mail. “The explosive device was supposed to be smuggled aboard an aircraft undetected and then detonated."
It has been known for some time that British intelligence runs terrorist operations and protects key terrorist assets.
In 2005, a terrorism expert and a former prosecutor for the Justice Department, John Loftus, revealed that the so-called mastermind of the 7/7 London bombings, Haroon Rashid Aswat, was a British intelligence asset.
Aswat associate Abu Hamza al-Masri, an influential cleric at the notorious Finsbury Park mosque in London, had a long and productive relationship with British intelligence. He worked with the Special Branch of the British Police and MI5. He told his aides that he was “beyond the reach of British law.”
In the 1990s, British intelligence paid al-Qaeda the equivalent of $160,000 to help fund an unsuccessful assassination attempt on Mu’ammar al-Qadhafi. Anas al-Liby, a member of al-Muqatila, the group responsible for the failed assassination attempt, was given political asylum in Britain despite his connections to al-Qaeda.
MI5 also worked with key al-Qaeda figure Abu Qatada. Due to the protection afforded by British intelligence, Qatada was able to escape arrest after the terror attacks of September 11, 2001. His relationship with MI5 is confirmed by numerous sources, including Bisher al-Rawi, another supposedly radical Muslim who served as a translator for MI5 in its dealings with Qatada. Following the attacks in New York and Washington, MI5 offered to spirit Qatada out of the country and help him reach Afghanistan.
Another leading imam in Britain, Omar Bakri Mohammed, has also admitted to working closely with British intelligence. “I think now we have something called public immunity,” he bragged in 2001, following the 9/11 attacks.
The “double agent” claim is especially deceiving. It is an exhaustively documented fact that the CIA created the illusion of a powerful and threatening terrorist group from remnants of the Afghan Mujahideen, the cobbled together force responsible for evicting the Soviets from Afghanistan with substantial help from Saudi Arabia, Pakistan’s intelligence service, the ISI, and the United States.
Prior to the truth being swept into the memory hole, the BBC and others reported that Osama bin Laden was trained by the CIA. Osama “not only invested some of his personal financial resources to fund the combat brigades, he also received military and financial assistance from the intelligence services of Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and the United States,” Forbes reported a few days after the 9/11 attacks, before the official narrative had a chance to overpower and sanitize reality.
ABC News reported that the CIA had financed – at the tune of $3 billion – Osama and the Mujaheddin, but this uncomfortable historical fact was scrubbed from the servers of the prized Operation Mockingbird asset.
In fact, al-Qaeda is not even a terrorist group, but is instead a propaganda campaign and carefully devised bogeyman, as Pierre-Henry Bunel, a former agent for French military intelligence, told Wayne Madsen in 2005.
"The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al Qaida. And any informed intelligence officer knows this. But there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an identified entity representing the ‘devil’ only in order to drive the ‘TV watcher’ to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism. The country behind this propaganda is the US and the lobbyists for the US war on terrorism are only interested in making money,” Bunel explains.
The late British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook also said al-Qaeda is a farce. He explained how the name “al-Qaeda” referred to a Mujahideen database used in Afghanistan (in Arabic, “al-Qaeda” is the base). "In the mid-1980s, Al Qaida was a database located in computer and dedicated to the communications of the Islamic Conference’s secretariat,” Cook told the House of Commons shortly before he died.
The “double agent” farce now dominating headlines is merely more propaganda nonsense. There is no al-Qaeda, not as commonly assumed and continually claimed by the government and the establishment media, but instead a loose conglomeration of largely inept and ineffectual terrorists and patsies who are controlled by the CIA, British intelligence, the Mossad, Pakistani intelligence, and other statist entities.
Congress has now called for a three ring circus investigation into the “leak” that supposedly broke the CIA double agent story to the media.
“The tale of high-risk intrigue and stealth conjured up a script from a Hollywood thriller, but members of Congress and intelligence veterans were angered by the disclosures,” Agence France-Presse reported on Thursday, and “denounced leaks to media organizations that revealed how the CIA disrupted an al-Qaida plot through a spy who had infiltrated the terror group, saying the release of such details could jeopardize sensitive intelligence work."
Instead, it will be exploited to further restrict information on the true nature of the phony war on manufactured terror and will be used as a predicate to enact legislation that will criminalize whistleblowers and truth-seekers.
