So, as I am no longer posting to this blog, anyone wondering about the source of such comments beyond the historical content here, should have a quick look at WikiSpooks
Most of my time is spent on the WikiSpooks Project these days.

Bin Laden is paid to be an enemy ...
God Save us from American Peace and Liberty
... Home-made prison with colour TV"
And all sung and danced to a Tamil beat and choreography.

The communist threat was no more and as the decade progressed, the need for a new enemy became pressing; preferably a really evil scary omnipresent one that could keep the masses by turns frightened and outraged - and thus docile and demanding of protection. What better than an "enemy" organised around a group already trained, armed, infiltrated and controlled by Western Intelligence?
And so it came to pass.
"al Qaeda" is Arabic for "the Base" - or "database" as, in its Western incarnation, it morphed to refer to the database of foreign (mainly Wahhabi and Sunni Arab) fighters prepared to harass the Russians in Afghanistan through the late 1980's and Chechnya in the 1990's. Then a few years later the Serbs in the former Yugoslavia. All of those campaigns in unwitting service to - and furtherance of - that same AANIP. "al Qaeda" was thus the creation of the CIA and, thoroughly infiltrated manipulated and controlled, it remains so to this day.
How can we be sure of this? - well the clincher, in the vast array of evidence that says so, lies in the name:
Arabic, like English and most languages, has its collections of homonyms and it appears that "Toilet" (loo, khazi, WC, gents, john etc.) is a particularly populous one - especially since it must cater for the Western fashion of sitting on a seat with a hole in it, rather than squatting.
And guess what? "al-Qaeda" is one of them - and the seat-type Western one at that!
So question: Can you imagine a group of terrorists styling themselves "The Red Toilet Faction", "The Toilet Brigades", "The Irish Republican Toilet" ? - Hmmm; me neither.
It sticks out like the bulbous red backside of an Orangutan you might say - and sort of gives the game away. Of course no one outside the gullible western-propagandised sheeple are taken in by it, but that matters little to TPTB in the West. Those who can clearly see that the Emperor has no cloths and who understand the grossness of his deceptions, have neither vote nor voice and thus, so long as there are regular "terrorist" attacks to keep the Western Sheeple outraged and fearful, they can be safely ignored.
Popular perceptions of the "grave risk to our way of life that terrorism (ie al-Qaeda) represents" must be carefully calibrated and, from the 1605 Gunpowder Plot, through the 1890's "Walsall Bomb Plot" and latter-day "Operation Gladio" outrages, our security services have mastered the art to near perfection.
I have taken to watching the BBC news occasionally again - strictly for its entertainment value you understand. It is a rare bulletin that does not include at least one of the range of standard-format rah rah pieces about our oh-so-necessary, just , and righteous wars; or the grave threat we face from the barbarian (or rather Muslim) terrorist hordes ranged against us. I have taken to counting the number of "Branches" (Franchises might be a better term) of "The Toilet" (TT) we now need to fret about - TT in Iran; TT in Iraq; TT in Timbuktu - cave-space rental must be costing an arm-and-a-leg. I'm waiting patiently for TT on the moon.
The latest of course is TT in the Yemen. Apropos the latest shock-horror episode of the toner-cartridge-bombs saga, I was watching Frank Gardner explaining it all on the BBC a few days ago. It was bloody hilarious - really entertaining. "The Toilet" was invoked no less than 9 times in a 3 minute slot with such gems as: "The Toilet in Yemen consists mainly of Toilet Operatives from Saudi Arabia" (and there was I thinking that it was Saudi that imported lowly immigrants to clean their khazis - you live and learn eh?).
So next time you are forced to endure Mr Gardner, or any other MI5/6 stooge waxing lyrical about "al Qaeda in Iraq", Afghanistan, Saudi, Yemen, Blackburn, Tunbridge Wells, etc etc. remember, everywhere has them! - and every time you hear that dreaded scary "AL-QAEDA!!!" word, just substitute the translation. You'll begin to look forward to the news as a reliable source of hilarity.
PS native Arabic speakers are cordially invited to correct me - or elaborate.

|Guido (Guy) Fawkes|
Overshadowed somewhat these days by a US commercialised version of “All-Hallows-Eve” – aka “Halloween” when the ghosts, demons, ghouls, and all that is evil, go on a fling before being banished by that now near-forgotten “All-Hallows-Day” aka “All Saints Day”, of the Church Triumphant on 1st November.
Few who cavort on “Halloween” are aware of its origins. Rather more I suspect are aware of the origins of “Bonfire night” on 5th November, when that dastardly popish plotter, Guy Fawkes, is ceremonially burned atop bonfires throughout the land, to celebrate the foiling of his wicked scheme to blow up the Houses of Parliament.
There are bemusing but valuable parallels with our present-day predicament for those with eyes to see:
A certain Robert Cecil – Spymaster extraordinaire to His Majesty King James I of England, VI of Scotland, and “Fidei Defensor” against Popish usurpers – nursed a pressing need to kill off uppity ideas of relief for HM’s persecuted Catholic population, once and for all. As moderator and arch-manipulator of the decisions of Court, he was well placed so to do. He knew well enough who the hot-heads among the dissidents were (the young rangy firebrands, constantly shouting the odds and harboring delusions of rising up against their oppressors); he had them well infiltrated. What better way to destroy them and their co-religionists than to:
- sow the idea
- nurture and provoke a little
- facilitate supplies and logistics etc
- make sure Mr Plod doesn’t interdict the hair-brained schemers prematurely
The population is outraged – “Those wicked WICKED Catholics!!!”; Additional protection and “Security” measures are demanded – ad nauseam……
No doubt we’ll be celebrating similar feats of derring do by “our boys” when the horror of our joint destruction of the cradle of civilisation and its peoples fades a little too.

Nine years on and here are a few solid, indisputable facts - courtesy of Washington's Blog
- The 9/11 Commission's co-chairs said that the 9/11 Commissioners knew that military officials misrepresented the facts to the Commission, and the Commission considered recommending criminal charges for such false statements (free subscription required)
- 9/11 Commission co-chair Lee Hamilton says "I don't believe for a minute we got everything right", that the Commission was set up to fail, that people should keep asking questions about 9/11, and that the 9/11 debate should continue
- 9/11 Commissioner Timothy Roemer said "We were extremely frustrated with the false statements we were getting"
- 9/11 Commissioner Max Cleland resigned from the Commission, stating: "It is a national scandal"; "This investigation is now compromised"; and "One of these days we will have to get the full story because the 9-11 issue is so important to America. But this White House wants to cover it up"
- 9/11 Commissioner Bob Kerrey said that "There are ample reasons to suspect that there may be some alternative to what we outlined in our version . . . We didn't have access . . . ." He also said that the investigation depended too heavily on the accounts of Al Qaeda detainees who were physically coerced into talking
- And the Senior Counsel to the 9/11 Commission (John Farmer) - who led the 9/11 staff's inquiry - recently said "At some level of the government, at some point in time...there was an agreement not to tell the truth about what happened". He also said "I was shocked at how different the truth was from the way it was described .... The tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public for two years.... This is not spin. This is not true." And he said: "It's almost a culture of concealment, for lack of a better word. There were interviews made at the FAA's New York center the night of 9/11 and those tapes were destroyed. The CIA tapes of the interrogations were destroyed. The story of 9/11 itself, to put it mildly, was distorted and was completely different from the way things happened"
Senior intelligence officers:
- Former military analyst and famed whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg said that the case of a certain 9/11 whistleblower is "far more explosive than the Pentagon Papers". He also said that the government is ordering the media to cover up her allegations about 9/11. And he said that some of the claims concerning government involvement in 9/11 are credible, that "very serious questions have been raised about what they [U.S. government officials] knew beforehand and how much involvement there might have been", that engineering 9/11 would not be humanly or psychologically beyond the scope of the current administration, and that there's enough evidence to justify a new, "hard-hitting" investigation into 9/11 with subpoenas and testimony taken under oath (see this and this)
- A 27-year CIA veteran, who chaired National Intelligence Estimates and personally delivered intelligence briefings to Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, their Vice Presidents, Secretaries of State, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and many other senior government officials (Raymond McGovern) said “I think at simplest terms, there’s a cover-up. The 9/11 Report is a joke”
- A 29-year CIA veteran, former National Intelligence Officer (NIO) and former Director of the CIA's Office of Regional and Political Analysis (William Bill Christison) said “I now think there is persuasive evidence that the events of September did not unfold as the Bush administration and the 9/11 Commission would have us believe (and see this)
- A number of intelligence officials, including a CIA Operations Officer who co-chaired a CIA multi-agency task force coordinating intelligence efforts among many intelligence and law enforcement agencies (Lynne Larkin) sent a joint letter to Congress expressing their concerns about “serious shortcomings,” “omissions,” and “major flaws” in the 9/11 Commission Report and offering their services for a new investigation (they were ignored)
- A decorated 20-year CIA veteran, who Pulitzer-Prize winning investigative reporter Seymour Hersh called "perhaps the best on-the-ground field officer in the Middle East”, and whose astounding career formed the script for the Academy Award winning motion picture Syriana (Robert Baer) said that "the evidence points at" 9/11 having had aspects of being an inside job
- The Division Chief of the CIA’s Office of Soviet Affairs, who served as Senior Analyst from 1966 - 1990. He also served as Professor of International Security at the National War College from 1986 - 2004 (Melvin Goodman) said "The final [9/11 Commission] report is ultimately a coverup"
- According to the Co-Chair of the Congressional Inquiry into 9/11 and former Head of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Bob Graham, an FBI informant had hosted and rented a room to two hijackers in 2000 and that, when the Inquiry sought to interview the informant, the FBI refused outright, and then hid him in an unknown location, and that a high-level FBI official stated these blocking maneuvers were undertaken under orders from the White House (confirmed here)
- Current Democratic U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy said "The two questions that the congress will not ask . . . is why did 9/11 happen on George Bush's watch when he had clear warnings that it was going to happen? Why did they allow it to happen?"
- Current Republican Congressman Ron Paul calls for a new 9/11 investigation and states that "we see the [9/11] investigations that have been done so far as more or less cover-up and no real explanation of what went on"
- Current Democratic Congressman Dennis Kucinich hints that we aren't being told the truth about 9/11
- Current Republican Congressman Jason Chafetz says that we need to be vigilant and continue to investigate 9/11
- Former Democratic Senator Mike Gravel states that he supports a new 9/11 investigation and that we don't know the truth about 9/11
- Former Republican Senator Lincoln Chaffee endorses a new 9/11 investigation
- Former U.S. Democratic Congressman Dan Hamburg doesn't believe the official version of events
- Former U.S. Republican Congressman and senior member of the House Armed Services Committee, and who served six years as the Chairman of the Military Research and Development Subcommittee Curt Weldon has shown that the U.S. tracked hijackers before 9/11, is open to hearing information about explosives in the Twin Towers, and is open to the possibility that 9/11 was an inside job
Other government officials:
- U.S. General, Commanding General of U.S. European Command and Supreme Allied Commander Europe, decorated with the Bronze Star, Silver Star, and Purple Heart (General Wesley Clark) said "We've never finished the investigation of 9/11 and whether the administration actually misused the intelligence information it had. The evidence seems pretty clear to me. I've seen that for a long time"
- Former Deputy Secretary for Intelligence and Warning under Nixon, Ford, and Carter (Morton Goulder), former Deputy Director to the White House Task Force on Terrorism (Edward L. Peck), and former US Department of State Foreign Service Officer (J. Michael Springmann), as well as a who's who of liberals and independents) jointly call for a new investigation into 9/11
- Former Federal Prosecutor, Office of Special Investigations, U.S. Department of Justice under Presidents Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan; former U.S. Army Intelligence officer, and currently a widely-sought media commentator on terrorism and intelligence services (John Loftus) says "The information provided by European intelligence services prior to 9/11 was so extensive that it is no longer possible for either the CIA or FBI to assert a defense of incompetence"
- The Group Director on matters of national security in the U.S. Government Accountability Office said that President Bush did not respond to unprecedented warnings of the 9/11 disaster and conducted a massive cover-up instead of accepting responsibility
- Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense under President Ronald Reagan (Col. Ronald D. Ray) said that the official story of 9/11 is "the dog that doesn't hunt"
- The former director of the FBI (Louis Freeh) says there was a cover up by the 9/11 Commission
Numerous other politicians, judges, legal scholars, and attorneys also question at least some aspects of the government's version of 9/11.

(Pictured right in his desert warfare attire, looking suitably grim and determined.)
All the usual cringe-inducing stuff - although at least he refrained from being pictured with a rictus grin on his face sitting awkwardly behind a machine gun in an attack helicopter, per his predecessor - but some equally crass stuff nonetheless.
Much of it was devoted to telling his audience how wonderfully heroic they are. Aangirfan has a superb skit on it here - juxtaposing his appeal for them to help him
" ....create a new atmosphere in our country, an atmosphere where we back and revere and support our military.”and telling them
".... I want to put YOU front and centre of our national life again"- with pictures of Adolph Hitler and his generals patronising their 'Hitler Youth' with similar hyperbole.
No doubt deeply offensive to those schooled in respect and reverence for their 'betters', but laser accurate analogies that make a telling point.
And the most deeply Freudian of Freudian slips - or should that be "Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings" ?
"... and its worth remembering why we're here why we're fighting - what this is all about. This not a war of choice, it is a war of necessity; this not a war of occupation, it's a war of obligation.
On 9/11, WHEN THE TWIN TOWERS WERE BLOWN UP
and so many BRITISH people died as well as Americans, almost every single person that took part in that attack was trained here in Afghanistan by al Qaeda ...."
Followed by more deeply patronising 'Santa Claus and the Tooth fairy' stuff about destroying their bases helping the Afghans to look after themselves before "going home with our heads held high" etc etc.
God we're a wonderful country eh?
The brief 911 reference is on You Tube here
For those with a strong stomach, a video of the entire speech proudly adorns the Number 10 Downing Street web site here. The 911 bit is around 3 minutes in. It is an object lesson in what is required of our sock-puppet politicians - and David Cameron demonstrates just how much of a master sock-puppet he really is.

- For those with teeny-weeny screens, the tee-shirt strap line reads:
"We're bringing oil to American Shores"Hmmm - aren't they just?
Seriously though - If the western world is to maintain its existing "non-negotiable" lifestyle for another 10-15 years or so - let alone there being the remotest prospect of 'making poverty history' by having others aspire to similar profligacy - then deep water drilling such as has produced the still unfolding catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico will have to be dramatically increased.
Consider the inevitable consequences and weep.

We, the undersigned citizens of the world, call on the United Nations General Assembly to rescind Israel's membership in the UN, as a step toward ending Zionist apartheid.
Israel's attack on a humanitarian aid fleet on Monday May 31, 2010, its murder of 9 human rights activists in international waters and wounding 50 others demonstrate that Israel rejects the structural tenets of our shared humanity, manifested in a global moral consensus and international law.
Countless UN resolutions call on Israel to respect international law. It abides by none of them. It should therefore lose its place among the global family of nations.
Israel has been violating international law and the Fourth Geneva Convention in its building of settlements, displacement of the indigenous population of Palestine, invasion of surrounding countries, killing and ethnically cleansing civilians systematically through the use of massacres. Israel has never been held accountable for the massacres of Deir Yassin, Qibya, Sabra and Shatilla, Qana, Gaza, and Jenin, for murdering Rachel Corrie, nor, as of today, for its massacre on the flotilla of international peace activists hoping to break Israel’s siege on the Palestinian people. As of 2007, Gaza has been turned into an open air prison housing 1.5 million people. Since 1948, Palestinians who carry Israeli citizenship do not enjoy equal protection or rights under Israeli law for not being classified as “Jewish Nationals.” Palestinian survivors of ethnic cleansing are denied the right to return.
We, the citizens of the world, call upon you to shape the 21st century with a new ethic, already enshrined in the United Nations. We call upon you to end Zionist apartheid and racial injustice by stripping Israel of its UN membership.

He was shot with 4 bullets to the head and 1 to the chest, at close range with a 9mm pistol.
But he was probably a Muslim - and of course the heroic IDF (the most moral army in the world we are assured) just had to defend themselves, so I guess that'll be OK then.
He was buried on 3 June 2010. RIP
And may his killers rot in Hell.
