US Terrorists - FACTS - ISIS, al Qaida, et al
 

1. The US has supported Al Qaeda and its affiliated organizations  for almost half a century since the heyday of the Soviet Afghan war. 

 2. CIA training camps were set up in Pakistan.  In the ten year period  from 1982 to 1992, some 35,000 jihadists from 43 Islamic countries were  recruited by the CIA to fight in the Afghan jihad.

     “Advertisements, paid for from CIA funds, were placed in newspapers and  newsletters around the world offering inducements and motivations to  join the Jihad.”

3. Since the Reagan Administration, Washington has supported the Islamic terror network.

 Ronald Reagan called the terrorists “freedom fighters”. The US supplied  weapons to the Islamic brigades.  It was all for “a good cause”:  fighting the Soviet Union and regime change, leading to the demise of a  secular government in Afghanistan.

 4. Jihadist textbooks  were  published by the University of Nebraska.  “. “The United States spent millions of dollars to supply Afghan  schoolchildren with textbooks filled with violent images and militant  Islamic teachings”

5. Osama bin Laden, America’s bogyman and  founder of Al Qaeda was recruited by the CIA in 1979 at the very outset  of the US sponsored jihadist war against Afghanistan . He was 22 years  old and was trained in a CIA sponsored guerilla training camp.

Al  Qaeda was not behind the 9/11 Attacks. September 11, 2001 provided a  justification for waging a war against Afghanistan on the grounds that  Afghanistan was a state sponsor of terrorism, supportive of Al Qaeda.  The 9/11 attacks were instrumental in the formulation of the “Global War  on Terrorism”.

THE ISLAMIC STATE (ISIL)

6. The Islamic  State (ISIL) was originally an Al Qaeda affiliated entity created by US  intelligence with the support of Britain’s MI6, Israel’s Mossad,  Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Saudi Arabia’s General  Intelligence Presidency (GIP), Ri’āsat Al-Istikhbārāt Al-’Āmah ( رئاسة  الاستخبارات العامة‎).

 7. The ISIL brigades were involved in the US-NATO supported insurgency  in Syria directed against the government of  Bashar al Assad.

8.   NATO and the Turkish High Command were responsible for the recruitment  of ISIL and Al Nusrah mercenaries from the outset of the Syrian  insurgency in March 2011. According to Israeli intelligence sources,  this initiative consisted in:

    “a campaign to enlist thousands  of Muslim volunteers in Middle East countries and the Muslim world to  fight alongside the Syrian rebels. The Turkish army would house these  volunteers, train them and secure their passage into Syria. (DEBKAfile,  NATO to give rebels anti-tank weapons, August 14, 2011.)

9.There  are Western Special Forces and Western intelligence operatives within  the ranks of the ISIL. British Special Forces and MI6 have been involved  in training jihadist rebels in Syria.

10. Western military specialists on contract to the Pentagon have trained the terrorists in the use of chemical weapons.

     “The United States and some European allies are using defense  contractors to train Syrian rebels on how to secure chemical weapons  stockpiles in Syria, a senior U.S. official and several senior diplomats  told CNN Sunday. ( CNN Report, December 9, 2012)

11. The ISIL’s  practice of beheadings is part of the US sponsored terrorist training  programs implemented in Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

12. Recruited by  America’s ally, a large number of ISIL mercenaries are convicted  criminals released from Saudi prisons on condition they join the ISIL.  Saudi death row inmates were recruited to join the terror brigades. 

13. Israel  has supported  the ISIL and Al Nusrah brigades out of the Golan Heights.

 Jihadist fighters have met Israeli IDF officers as well as Prime  Minister Netanyahu. The IDF top brass tacitly acknowledges that “global  jihad elements inside Syria” [ISIL and Al Nusrah] are supported by  Israel.

SYRIA AND IRAQ

14 The ISIL are the foot  soldiers  of the Western military alliance. Their unspoken mandate is to  wreck havoc and destruction in Syria and Iraq, acting on behalf of  their US sponsors.

15. US Senator John McCain has met up with jihadist terrorist leaders in Syria. 

 16  The Islamic State (IS) militia, which is currently the alleged  target of  a US-NATO bombing campaign under a “counter-terrorism”  mandate, continues to be supported covertly by the US.  Washington and  its allies continue to provide military aid to the Islamic State.

 17. US and allied bombings are not targeting the ISIL, they are bombing  the economic infrastructure of Iraq and Syria including factories and  oil refineries.

18.  The IS caliphate project is part of a  longstanding US foreign policy agenda to carve up Iraq and Syria into  separate territories: A Sunni Islamist Caliphate, an Arab Shia Republic,  a Republic of Kurdistan.

THE GLOBAL WAR ON TERRORISM (GWOT)

 19. “The Global War on Terrorism” (GWOT) is presented as a “Clash of  Civilizations”, a war between competing values and religions, when in  reality it is an outright war of conquest, guided by strategic and  economic objectives.

20 U.S. sponsored Al Qaeda terror brigades  (covertly supported by Western intelligence) have been deployed in Mali,  Niger, Nigeria, the Central African Republic, Somalia and Yemen.

America’s “War on Terrorism” By Mchel Chossudovsky

 These various affiliated Al Qaeda entities in the Middle East,  sub-Saharan Africa  and Asia are CIA sponsored “intelligence assets”.  They are used by Washington to wreck havoc,  create internal conflicts  and destabilize sovereign countries.

21 Boko Haram in Nigeria, Al  Shabab in Somalia, the Libya Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) (supported  by NATO in 2011),  Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM),  Jemaah  Islamiah (JI) in Indonesia,  among other Al Qaeda affiliated groups are  supported covertly by Western intelligence.

22. The US is also  supporting Al Qaeda affiliated terrorist organizations in the Xinjiang  Uighur autonomous region of China. The underlying objective is to  trigger political instability in Western China.

Chinese jihadists  are reported to have received “terrorist training” from the Islamic  State “in order to conduct attacks in China”. The declared objective of  these Chinese-based jihadist entities (which serves the interests of the  US)  is to establish a Islamic caliphate extending into Western China.   (Michel Chossudovsky, America’s War on Terrorism, Global Research,  Montreal, 2005, Chapter 2).

HOMEGROWN TERRORISTS

23 The  Terrorists R Us:  While the US is the unspoken architect of the Islamic  State,  Obama’s holy mandate is to protect America against ISIL attacks.

 24 The homegrown terrorist threat is a fabrication.  It is promoted by  Western governments and the media with a view to repealing civil  liberties and installing a police state. The terror attacks by alleged  jihadists and terror warnings are invariably staged events. They are  used to create an atmosphere of fear and intimidation.

In turn,  the arrests, trials and sentences of “Islamic terrorists” sustain the  legitimacy of America’s Homeland Security State and law enforcement  apparatus, which has become increasingly militarized.

The  ultimate objective is to instill in the minds of millions of Americans  that the enemy is real and the U.S. Administration will protect the  lives of its citizens.

25.  The “counter-terrorism” campaign  against the Islamic State has contributed to the demonization of  Muslims, who in the eyes of Western public opinion are increasingly   associated with the jihadists.

26  Anybody who dares to question  the validity of the “Global War on Terrorism” is branded a terrorist and  subjected to the anti-terrorist laws.
