By Kurt Nimmo




Now that the Pentagon has murdered the Abu Musab al-Zarqawi myth, it is time to roll up “al-Qaeda in Iraq” for propaganda purposes, especially considering the miserable condition of the Iraq occupation and the increasing demands of the Iraqi “leadership” that the United States leave the country.


“The Samarra shrine bombing, which set off waves of sectarian killing that are still plaguing the country, was the brainchild of an Iraqi member of Al Qaeda, and not a foreign terrorist, a senior Iraqi official said today,” reports the “liberal” (www.)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.nytimes(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/2006/06/28/world/middleeast/28cnd-iraq.html?hp&ex=1151553600&en=c2a531815c564a00&ei=5094&partner=homepage"]New York Times[/url], the “newspaper of record” neocons are itching to prosecute for treason. “Mowaffaq al-Rubaie, the country’s national security adviser, identified Haitham al-Badri as the planner of the February attack. He said that Mr. Badri, a member of a Sunni tribe from Salahadin province, which includes Samarra, was currently a member of Al Qaeda in Iraq, but earlier had belonged to a different Iraqi insurgent group, Ansar al-Sunna.” All of this supposedly came to light after Yousri Fakher Mohammed Ali, a Tunisian also known as Abu Qudama and allegedly an “al-Qaeda in Iraq” member, fingered al-Badri.


It is amazing the way slavish corporate media tools, essentially stenographers for the Pentagon and the neocons, report the “news” (engineered propaganda) without reference to past events, sort of like Winston Smith feeding evidence of news recalibrated into the memory hole.


Haitham al-Badri’s “confession yielded several new details about the shrine bombing, Mr. Rubaie. He said it was the work of a team of two Iraqis, four Saudis and Abu Qudama, under the direction of Mr. Badri,” the New York Times continues. “The group took advantage of a handoff in security at the shrine, when the Iraqi turned it over to a local facility protection service. ‘The terrorists entered the shrine the night before the bombing, and they jailed the guards in one of the rooms and had the whole time—several hours—to install the equipment of crime,’ Mr. Rubaie said.”


No mention here of Iraqi reports that the bombing was pulled off by the Iraqi National Guard and that according “to reports appearing on the humanitarian Iraqi League organization’s Iraqi Rabita website and translated into English by the Iraqi blogger Baghdad Dweller … at least two witnesses saw ‘unusual activities by the ING [iraqi National Guard] in the area around the Masjid.’ Two Masjid guards reported four men in ING uniforms had blindfolded them and planted explosives. A second witness, Muhammad al-Samarrai, the owner of an internet cafe in the area, was told to stay in his store and not leave the area. From 11 pm until 6:30 am, ten minutes before two bombs were detonated, the area surrounding the Masjid was patrolled by ‘joint forces of Iraqi ING and Americans,’ according to al-Samarrai” (see my February 23 blog entry, (www.)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_kurtnimmo(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/?p=244"]Pentagon-Controlled Iraqi National Guard Implicated in Samarra Masjid Bombing[/url]).


In addition to apparently facilitating the Masjid bombing, Iraqi National Guard troops provided assistance to “more than a dozen masked Shia gunmen” attacking the Sunni al-Quds Masjid in western Baghdad in the wake of the Samarra attack, according to the Times Online. In addition, “gunmen arrived [at the Maakel prison in Basra] in a fleet of cars and showed documents which claimed that they were from the Interior Ministry… and lynched at least eleven Sunni inmates, among them at least two Egyptians.”


“The bombing of the Golden Dome shrine, regarded by Shiites as one of their holiest sites, was followed by the deaths of hundreds of Iraqis in reprisal killings, as the country teetered on the verge of a full-blown civil war,” the New York Times continues. “Killings on the basis of ethnicity or religion have become routine in Baghdad and other mixed areas of Iraq, and a report issued Tuesday by the International Organization on Migration, a London-based advocacy group, estimated that more than 100,000 Iraqis had fled their homes since the bombing of the shrine, primarily out of fear of assassination.”


In short, “al-Qaeda in Iraq” has accomplished its mission—touching off a “civil war,” as the corporate media deems it, in fact an engineered effort to balkanize the country. Once again, cui bono comes into play: the United States and israel benefit from the social and cultural destruction of Iraq, not the Iraqi people and certainly not some fantastical entity called “al-Qaeda,” who we are expected to believe runs the resistance in Iraq. How exactly an alleged fanatical Muslim organization benefits from killing fellow Muslims and blowing up Masjids while ignoring the occupation is not explained.


As John St. John writes for After Downing Street ((www.)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.afterdowningstreet(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/node/12370"]The Iraq Vichy[/url]), “There is an interesting historical parallel between the Nazi occupation of France and the American occupation of Iraq. The Vichy government was installed by an occupation just as the Iraq government was. Hitler did not call for any elections in France because at that time election fraud had not become a science. Unlike Hitler: Bush who had stolen two elections in the United States did not fear the electoral process. The Iraqis who turned out to vote did not even know who they were voting for. The Vichy government in France initiated a civil war just as the faux Iraq government has. This is why Iraqis are killing Iraqis. The idea that civil war in Iraq is caused by religious differences between the Sunni and the Shiites is false propaganda used to justify continuing the American occupation.” In short, as a tool of the Pentagon, the current Iraqi government is doing the bidding of the neocons, who borrowed a page from the israeli “strategist” Oded Yinon.


In addition to acting as quite brutal death squad assassins, the U.S. trained and supplied Iraqi National Guard will eventually serve as “Haddad forces” (the late (www.)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.veteranen.info/~cedarsouthlebanon/dff/south_lebanon_army.eng.htm"]Major Saad Haddad[/url] was the leader of the IDF’s proxy militia in Lebanon) and Iraq (and all of the Arab and Muslim Middle East) will become “Haddadland,” as (www.)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.theunjustmedia(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/the%20zionist_plan_for_the_middle_ast.htm"]israel Shahak[/url] dismissively referred to the “states” (Bantustans) proposed by Yinon in his 1982 report. “In order to ensure this, the plan, as explained orally, calls for the establishment of israeli garrisons in focal places between the mini states, equipped with the necessary mobile destructive forces. In fact, we have seen something like this in Haddadland and we will almost certainly soon see the first example of this system functioning either in South Lebanon or in all Lebanon,” the late Shahak wrote in a conclusion of a reprint of Yinon’s report.


Of course, the israelis failed in Lebanon and thanks in no small part to the effort of Hezbollah, formed in response to israel’s illegal invasion, they were unceremoniously sent packing, tails tucked. Obviously, israel does not have the resources or manpower to place “garrisons” in the Arab and Muslim Middle East, but the United States does, or so the neocon planners, in sync with the fanatical Jabotinskyites in israel, believe. In fact, the U.S. is hastily constructing “enduring bases” with names such as Camp Renegade and Camp Victory in Iraq for this express purpose, although Pentagon Herr Reichsführer Donald Rumsfeld denies it.


All of this extensive and expensive effort, however, will ultimately fail, as the Iraqi people, as the Lebanese before them, will continue to fight until the United States leaves Iraq, more than likely with all the class of helicopters ferrying hysterical refugees from the roof of the U.S. embassy in Saigon.


An indigenous Hezbollah already exists in Iraq, although the Pentagon is employing black ops to portray this resistance as the efforts of crazed Wahabbi fanatics, a propaganda effort designed to convince Americans “al-Qaeda” has taken over in Iraq and if “we don’t fight the terrorists in Iraq, we will be fighting them on the streets of America,” a load of childish bunkum unfortunately bought by millions of Americans who get their information from Fox News, or rather the Bush Ministry of Lies and Disinformation, and are easily frightened, as children are frightened as they gather around a campfire and listen to scary stories about monsters and scary Freddy Kruger apparitions.
