February 3, 2011 — SPECIAL REPORT. Obama’s gambit: Holding Egypt for Holder

WMR has learned from a well-informed political insider that President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have waffled on support for Egypt’s pro-democracy revolution in order to safeguard a covert U.S.-Egyptian rendition and torture program that dates back to the Clinton administration. In fact, Clinton’s Deputy Attorney General, Eric Holder, now Obama’s Attorney General, was the first Department of Justice official to write a legal brief authorizing the rendition of alleged terrorists from third countries by the CIA to Egypt for purposes of interrogation and torture.

Holder, who served as Deputy Attorney General under Janet Reno from 1997 to 2001, authorized the first CIA rendition to a third country. In 1995, Talaat Fuad Qassim, a member of al-Gamaa Islamiya, an Islamist group linked to “Al Qaeda’s” number two, Egyptian Ayman al Zawahiri, was kidnapped by CIA agents in Croatia and flown to the United States. In 1997, after Holder became Deputy Attorney General, Justice Department prosecutors realized they had no legal right to hold Qassim. Holder, according to our source, went to see President Clinton and told him about the problem with holding Qassim in the United States, stressing that the United States was legally bound to release Qassim. Clinton told Holder to send Qassim to someone else. Holder arranged to have Qassim flown to Egypt where he was put into a small crate, tortured, and eventually executed by Egyptian authorities.

Holder has long been a coddler of torturous regimes. In 2004, while a partner with Covington and Burling, Holder worked out a plea agreement for his client, Chiquita Brands International, in which the firm agreed to pay a fine of $25 million for making cash payments to the Colombian right-wing death squad paramilitary force, the United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia. The AUC carried out systamatic assassinations of trade union activists, peasants, politicians, and leftist guerrillas in Colombia.

In July 1998, Holder signed off on the transport of two members of the Egyptian Jihad, captured by Albanian security forces in Albania, to Cairo by the CIA on a chartered extraordinary rendition aircraft. The Egyptians were tortured and executed.

Egyptian torture methods included hanging prisoners by all four limbs and placing electric nodules on their genitals, nipples, and feet. The CIA paid Egypt handsomely to carry out the torture program.

Holder and White House chief of staff Leon Panetta had signed off on the CIA’s pre-9/11 rendition program with Egypt. During his confirmation hearings for Attorney General in May 2009, Holder was asked by Senators Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and Richard Shelby (R-AL)about his role in renditions as Deputy Attorney General for Clinton. Holder admitted that extraordinary renditions occurred during the Clinton administration. However, neither Alexander nor Shelby asked Holder how many individuals were renditioned during his time as Deputy Attorney General. Holder was also not asked what torture countries received the kidnapped prisoners from the United States.

WMR has learned that George W. Bush’s chief policy adviser, Karl Rove, restrained Republican senators from delving into too many details with Holder at his confirmation hearing. Rove was aware that the Bush administration also used Egypt as a renditioned prisoner recipient country. But Rove was also concerned about secrets being revealed about his own deals with Sweden to turn terrorist suspects over to the CIA for subsequent torture in Egypt. In December 2001, Sweden arrested Ahmed Agiza and Muhammad al-Zery, two Egyptian asylum seekers who lived in Sweden.

Delivered to CIA agents at Bromma airport outside of Stockholm, the two Egyptians were handcuffed and chained after having suppositories containing drugs inserted into their anuses. The two Egyptians were then flown to Cairo where they were imprisoned and tortured. The rendition plane used was a Gulfstream V, owned by Premier Executive Transport Services, a CIA front company located in Dedham, Massachusetts. The tail number is N379P. The Swedish parliament and the UN later determined that Sweden violatedSwedish and international law, respectively, by transferring the two Egyptians to the CIA and, ultimately to Egypt. Al Zery received $500,000 in compensation from the Swedish government.

Rove has known Holder since President Reagan appointed him as a judge on the Superior Court of the District of Columbia in 1988. All of Reagan’s judicial appointments were subject to vetting by Rove and his friends in the right-wing Federalist Society.

CIA’s rendition program: started under President Clinton and with Eric Holder’s approval.

Rove, who has had a long relationship with Sweden, reportedly phoned then-Swedish Prime Minister Goran Persson and told him that Sweden must hand Agiza and al-Zehy over to the United States. WMR has learned from our source that Swedish Foreign Minister Anna Lindh also received a personal phone call and e-mail from Rove in which it was demanded that the two Egyptians be turned over to the Americans. Lindh was apparently opposed to the request but was overruled by Persson, who was a friend of Bill Clinton and a champion of Clinton’s and British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s “Third Way’ globalist movement. Lindh was stabbed by an assailant in Stockholm on September 10, 2003 and she died from her wounds on September 11. A Serbian-Swede was found guilty of the murder but his conviction was later overturned after he was pronounced mentally ill. There are suspicions that Lindh, an outspoken critic of America’s invasion of Iraq and Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians, was assassinated by CIA or Egyptian agents who were worried about her knowledge of the CIA’s Egyptian and other rendition programs.

The man who ran Egypt’s torture program on behalf of the CIA was Omar Suleiman, the feared head of the Egyptian General Intelligence Directorate (EGID), who was named by President Hosni Mubarak as Vice President after the popular rebellion against Mubarak’s regime swept Egypt. Suleiman was a recipient of large cash payments from the CIA for EGID’s torture of prisoners delivered to Egypt by the CIA under both the Clinton and George W. Bush administrations. Suleiman also maintained close contacts with Mossad on issues dealing with Palestine and Syria. Suleiman also served as a member of a CIA-sponsored group of Arab intelligence service chiefs working against Iran. The group included Suleiman, CIA director Michael Hayden, Jordanian chief Mohamed Dahabi, Saudi intelligence head Prince Moqrin bin Abdulaziz, and United Arab Emirates national security council head Sheikh Hazaa bin Zayed al Nahyan. In 2001, Suleiman personally witnessed the torture of Mamdouh Habib, an Australian citizen renditioned by the CIA from Pakistan to Egypt. Habib was given repeated electric shocks, beaten, and waterboarded as Suleiman looked on. Habib was eventually renditioned again by the CIA from Egypt to Guantanamo, his “confession,” obtained under Suleiman’s torture techniques, used against him by the United States.

In December 2009, Suleiman traveled to Israel to meet with Netanyahu, Israeli President Shimon Peres, Mossad chief Meir Dagan, Defense Minister Ehud Barak, and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman. Israel had extended an open door to Suleiman and he made several trips to Israel during his tenure as Egypt’s to spy. It was Suleiman who tightended Egypt’s border controls on Gaza, furthering the misery of the people of the world’s largest engineered ghetto.

In 1993, Suleiman ordered his intelligence service to conduct a “census” of all “Arab-Afghans” living in Peshawar, Pakistan, and surrounding areas. They were all veterans of the CIA mujaheddin war against the Soviets in Afghanistan — Egyptians, Libyans, Yemenis, Jordanians, Palestinians, Algerians, Sudanese, Bahrainis, Tunisians. The census database soon contained thousands of names and Suleiman and his colleague, Saudi intelligence chief Prince Turki bin Faisal, added additional names of Pakistani and Afghan supporters of such Islamist groups as Harkatul Ansar and Ahl al -Hadith, all of whom came under the operational control of CIA and British MI-6 Afghanistan field operative, Osama Bin Laden.  British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook wrote about the census database in The Guardianon July 8, 2005, “Al-Qaida, literally ‘the database,’ was originally the computer file of the thousands of mujahideen who were recruited and trained with help from the CIA to defeat the Russians.” In fact, by conducting the census of the “Arab-Afghans” in Pakistan, the actual founder of “Al Qaeda” is the new Vice President of Egypt, Israel’s closest Egyptian friend, Omar Suleiman. No wonder, Mubarak had to cover his tracks by revealing in June 2002, that Suleiman warned his CIA counterparts a week before 9/11 that Bin Laden was in the final stages of launching a major attack on the United States but that no one realized that the plan included the use of passenger planes to attack buildings. Mubarak’s and Suleiman’s “plausible deniability” protected themselves and the Israelis, especially important since “lead hijacker” Mohammad Atta, was supposedly an Egyptian.

≈≈≈≈

Regardless of the statements from President Obama that Mubarak must leave office “now,” it is clear that the waffling by the Obama administration is intended to buy time for the CIA to appropriate the Egyptian government’s torture and rendition files that date back to Holder’s original authorization of the program. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s major goal is to limit the damage  to her husband from any disclosure of documents by a new Egyptian reform government about her husband’s role in the CIA’s use of Egypt to detain and torture prisoners. CIA director Leon Panetta is also trying to avoid the torture rap from his time as President Clinton’s chief of staff.

The CIA has embarked on a policy of suppressing the Egyptian revolution until all potentially embarrassing documents and computer files held by Suleiman’s EGID and other Egyptian government agencies can be successfully removed from Egypt to the United States.

The CIA recalls how partially shredded and un-shredded classified CIA documents at the U.S. embassy in Tehran were obtained by students who took over the embassy and, unlike the suspiciously-redacted Wikileaks cables, were soon published for the world to see, CIA agents names and all. In fact, the long-cut shredders used to destroy the documents were a blessing for the Iranians who handed the spaghetti-like shreds to Iran’s best carpet weavers to reconstruct them in practically their original form. The EGID and other Egyptian intelligence and security agencies have likely amassed tons of files on CIA activities over the past several decades and the potential for the release of documents concerning all the CIA operations that involved Egypt — the 1980 October Surprise, Iran-contra, CIA arms smuggler Edwin Wilson’s operations in Libya, repeated covert efforts against Saddam Hussein in Iraq, arms smuggling by the CIA to other African nations through the warehouse at Cairo West airport, and the CIA’s nurturing of “Al Qaeda” for the mujaheddin war in Afghanistan and 9/11 — has Langley shaking over the possibility that a reform government will reveal the dirty little secrets of the CIA and successive American presidents going back to Ronald Reagan.

The CIA has been behind the scenes in Egypt advising the security forces and army on suppressing the popular uprising in order to delay the clock for Mubarak and his regime. The International Network for Rights and Development reported that three Israeli cargo planes arrived at Cairo’s Mina International Airport on January 28 carrying large amounts of gas used for dispersing large crowds. There were also reports of U.S. and Israeli counter-insurgency personnel being dispatched to Egypt to assist the regime in suppressing the rebellion. Other reports emanating from Egypt claimed that Israeli professional provocateurs were among the pro-Mubarak “demonstrators” who attacked peaceful demonstrators in Tahrir Square, resulting in an outbreak of deadly violence on February 3. Israel has a long history of such activities in Egypt, including the infamous 1954 Lavon affair that, if successful, would have seen “false flag” Israeli terrorist attacks on U.S. targets in Cairo that would later be blamed on Egypt, eliciting a military response by the United States on Egypt.

The CIA has a special procurement program that is used to buy sensitive items from foreign governments. “Sterility codes” are used by the CIA to designate the “degree of traceability” that is used for the procurement of off-shore purchases of foreign items, such as crowd control gas from Israel for use by Egypt. The records of the purchases are likely to be found in “Local Procurement” records maintained by the CIA stations in Cairo and Tel Aviv.

The CIA’s last-ditch support for the Mubarak regime is strikingly similar to its support for the Shah of Iran in his final days in power. As with the revolt against Mubarak in Egypt, the uprising against Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi in 1978 came as a shock to the CIA. On December 2, 1978, two million people filled Tehran’s Shahyad (now Azadi) Square demanding that the Shah step down. Almost two million people similarly filled Cairo’s Tahrir Square demanding that Mubarak step down. In the months preceding the mass demonstration in Tehran, Iranian security forces massacred thousands of people. Iranian opposition forces claimed that Israel’s Mossad provided assistance for the massacres to Iran’s feared SAVAK security agency.

The CIA, to the very end, also provided assistance to the Shah’s government. Some 75 CIA agents were dispatched to Iran along with more than a hundred private contractor operatives, all retired U.S. military and intelligence operatives. These agents worked closely with members of the Iranian military and SAVAK, many of whom had received training in the United States. Similarly, a number of Egyptian officers and non-commissioned officers, as well as EGID agents, received training in the United States. Just as President Obama dispatched  Frank G. Wisner, Jr., former U.S. ambassador to Egypt and reputed CIA agent-of-influence, to talk to Mubarak, a close friend of Wisner, President Jimmy Carter, in November 1978, asked former U.S. ambassador to Iran and former CIA director Richard Helms, a personal friend of the Shah, to conduct liaison between the White House and the Shah. During his time as CIA director, Helms authorized the training of SAVAK officials in torture techniques. The CIA and Mossad coordinated their pro-Shah efforts in Iran.

As the Shah’s position weakened, the Pentagon sent crowd control vehicles to Iran that were equipped with water cannons. Contingency plans were drawn up by the Pentagon and the National Security Council for the U.S. to dispatch troops to Iran to put down the popular rebellion and save the Shah and his Peacock Throne. SAVAK agents were also trained by the CIA to infiltrate anti-Shah groups and report on their plans. Other CIA provocateurs were believed to have infiltrated Iranian student groups that later took over the U.S. embassy in Tehran. There is a belief by many intelligence agents at the time that the most egregious incidents carried out by the students after they took over the embassy and held U.S. personnel hostage were committed by CIA and Mossad infiltrators bent on bringing about a swift U.S. military move against Iran and prevent Ayatollah Khomeini from taking power.

In the world of the CIA, the playbook never seems to change.

Along with the calls for Mubarak to step down now, there should be similar calls across the United States for Eric Holder to pack his bags and leave town.

Obama’s reaxction to Egypt crisis, once again, reveals his CIA training and belief system.

February 2, 2011 — Obama showing his CIA roots in bid to save Mubarak regime

President Obama’s sudden dispatch of former Republican-appointed U.S. ambassador to Egypt and India Frank Wisner, Jr. clearly represents additional proof that Obama is a true-to-life “Manchurian candidate.” In the case of Obama, he is actually the “McLean candidate,” a reference to the community, the outskirts of which include the CIA’s headquarters.

Obama and his administration, which seems more interested in following the diktats of the Israelis and their mouthy lobby in the United States, has shown itself to be tone deaf to the feelings on the Arab street. The State Department, which is the greatest font of status quo enthusiasts in the world, was caught with their pants down after it became apparent that Egypt’s transition from its 30-year plus dictator, Hosni Mubarak, would not be a “soft landing” transition and that the Soros-themed “Lotus Revolution” was, in fact, a mass popular rebellion over which the United States could exercise no influence.

Just as with Tunisia’s “Jasmine Revolution,” there is now a fear within the power structures of the Pentagon, CIA, and Israel Lobby that the presence of the Ennadha and Muslim Brotherhood as influential members of the reform coalitions in Tunisia and Egypt, respectively, pose some kind of threat to Israel and American military interests in the region.

With Mubarak on the ropes, a series of events began to unfold . The agents of status quo in Washington and Jerusalem began to paint the picture of Egypt as another “Iran” and that the post-Mubarak government of Egypt would scrap the Israeli-Egyptian peace accord hammered out by President Jimmy Carter. After Carter publicly stated that it was time for Mubarak to step down and Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan — no friend of Israel — made a similar call, the cabalistic gnomes of Washington and Jerusalem began to alter their incantations. The Lotus and Jasmine Revolutions, crafted at low levels by the typical infusions of cash and other assets from George Soros’s Open Society Institute, the neocon Freedom House, the CIA-linked US Agency for International Development (USAID), and the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), had backfired and the situation was getting out of their control. There was a realization that real democracy in Egypt and Tunisia, as well as other Arab nations where the streets were stirring, was a bad thing for the likes of Soros, Obama, and Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

Something had to be done and done fast, especially as millions of Egyptian demonstrators poured into the streets of Cairo, Alexandria, and other cities. First, Mubarak could not step down right away — he had to remain until a scheduled election in September. Second, Egyptian intelligence chief Omar Suleiman, who cooperated with the CIA in its rendition and torture programs and with the Mossad and Israel Defense Force in their brutal actions against Gaza, was appointed Vice President, Egypt’s first in 30 years. Suleiman would martial the police and paramilitary forces to crack the spine of the opposition. Third, propagandists for Israel and the globalization crowd, including Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, and even Obama called for “stability” and an “orderly” transition of power in Egypt. Obama was telling Mubarak not to run for re-election at the same time almost two million people on the streets of Cairo were demanding Mubarak’s immediate resignation. The corporate media broadcast the “stability and order” desires of Clinton, Blair, Obama, and other meaningless officials like the European Union’s foreign minister, Baroness Ashton to Egypt and the rest of the Arab world. It was merely a ridiculous attempt to placate Egypt’s masses while buying time for Mubarak and his regime. And it did not work.

Those three courses of action undertaken, a fourth, more sinister plan unfolded. Obama sent Ronald Reagan’s and George HW Bush’s ambassador to Egypt, Frank Wisner, Jr., to Egypt as a special envoy to talk to Mubarak, Wisner’s close friend. However, Wisner has, like his father, a long history with the CIA and coups and suppression of popular revolts. Wisner’s presence was merely an attempt by Obama to reassure Mubarak that the United States and Israel would throw their full intelligence and covert military weight behind Mubarak and Suleiman to preserve the regime until a government, suitable to Washington and Jerusalem, could be identified and installed in Cairo as a “reform” government.

After buying time for Mubarak, his regime has organized gangs of thugs, many of them security police, to attack the protesters on the streets, including those in Tahrir Square in Cairo. The scenes of violence against anti-Mubarak demonstrators is a psychological warfare operation meant to scare the people off the streets. Many of Egypt’s security forces have received psy-ops training in the United States, including at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. The United States and other western nations are now merely offering platitudes about the need for a “start” of transition talks but, secretly, are involved in a “Kabuki” theater dance with Mubarak and his regime’s officials.

Wisner, a recent chairman of the CIA-linked American International Group (AIG) and a former board member of similarly-CIA linked Enron and Kroll Associates, as well as a current director of the British intelligence firm Hakluyt & Company, which may be in possession of Obama’s employment records from CIA front company, New York-based Business International Corporation, which was sold to the Economist Intelligence Unit in London in 1986, is a major behind-the-scenes player in America’s “shadow government” — the real power behind U.S. leaders like Obama, Biden, Clinton, and others.

Wisner also carried the water for Israel to Egypt. Wisner is married to Christine de Ganay, the former wife of Pal Sarkozy, the father of French President Nicolas Sarkozy. President Sarkozy has been investigated by French security services for being an agent for the Mossad and under his regime, French foreign policy has been dictated by Israeli and French Jewish business interests.

Wisner also served as Tunisian Affairs director at the State Department, likely CIA station chief at the U.S. embassy in Bangladesh in the post-independence years — independence opposed by then Nixon national security adviser and Secretary of State Henry Kissinger — and U.S. ambassador to Zambia, post-Marcos Philippines, Condoleezza Rice’s special envoy to Kosovo independence talks, and, more importantly, as Bill Clinton’s ambassador to India, where he laid the groundwork for Enron’s entree into the Indian energy business. Wisner was handsomely rewarded for his work by Enron chairman Kenneth Lay, who appointed Wisner to the Enron board. Apparently, all of Wisner’s dubious past activities and links is perfectly fine for Obama.

WMR reported on the Wisner-Enron connection on December 16, 2009: “Frank Wisner, who served on Enron’s board, used his links with the CIA station chief in New Delhi (while he was ambassador to India in the mid-1990s) to secure Enron’s acquisition of the Dabhol power plant. Wisner assured that Enron would be guaranteed $30 billion in revenue from the government of Maharashtra state, with about half of that net profit. During his stint as the U.S. ambassador to the Philippines from 1991-1992, Wisner clinched Enron the contract to manage two Subic Bay power plants. Wisner’s father was a CIA agent who committed suicide in 1965 after a career that included assisting the overthrow of democratically elected governments in Iran and Guatemala. Another Enron director was Henry ‘Pug’ Winokur, who, from 1988-1997 was Chairman of Dyncorp, a favorite CIA ‘carve out’ contractor in Latin America, the Balkans, and Africa. Ken Lay, himself, had ties to the intelligence community when he worked in the Pentagon during the Vietnam War.”

Wisner’s father, Frankn Wisner, Sr., was director of plans for the CIA in the 1950s. During World War II, Wisner served as chief of liaison between the Office of Strategic Services, the forerunner of the CIA, and the German Gehlen Organization, a group of German intelligence agents who began working for the United States against America’s wartime ally, the Soviet Union. In the post-war years, Wisner established Operation Mockingbird, which sought to influence the media in the United States and abroad. Wisner’s program was put to use in reporting on events in Iran, where the CIA overthrew the democratically-elected government of Prime Minister Mohammed Mossadeq in 1952 in Operation Ajax and installed the Shah, and Guatemala, where populist President Jacobo Arbenz Guzman was ousted by the CIA in Operation PBSUCCESS in 1954. Wisner, Sr. reportedly committed suicide with a shotgun in 1965.

It was the senior Wisner who established the CIA’s long-standing links within the newsrooms of The New York Times, Washington Post, Newsweek, CBS, as well as government-funded broadcasters like Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, and foreign newspapers such as the Bangkok Post and Manila Times, as as reported by The Washington Post, the domestic tabloid, the National Enquirer, whose publisher, Gene Pope, was a CIA veteran and an integral part of Mockingbird.

The vestiges of Mockingbird are now ensuring skewed coverage of events in Egypt in order to buy time for Mubarak and the new cast of characters the United States and Israel are pre-selecting to comprise the “reform” government in Cairo. President Obama’s special envoy to Russia, Henry Kissinger, was rolled out to proclaim that Mubarak had “months” left in office and the transition to a more democratic government would be a “long process.” Kissinger’s statement reflected a subtle shift from Vice President Joseph Biden’s previous strong support for Mubarak. Biden refused to call Mubarak a dictator.

Obama clearly demonstrates by his words and actions that he defers in making decision on foreign policy to the same “shadow government” of CIA officials, globalists, and disaster capitalists who have, in tandem, called the shots on U.S. policy for the decades during and following the Cold War.

While millions of Egyptians were in the streets demanding that Mubarak leave office immediately, along with his regime, President Obama in Washington called on Mubarak not to run for re-election, in September, a full eight months away! Perhaps Mr. Obama should now follow his own advice as his Cairo and Istanbul speeches on outreach to the Muslim world have been proven to be bloviating claptrap not worth the teleprompter they were scrolled on.

No “global awakening” if Soros and Gates can do anything about it.

February 1, 2011 — Internet cognitive infiltration — it exists and Soros funds it

As if on cue and as America’s past program of commandeering and steering popular rebellions and revolutions to bring about pro-American governments is failing on a grand scale, WMR has learned from reliable sources that there has been an increase in the disruption of blogs and comments sections on web sites in the United States, especially those that take on an anti-Obama and anti-globalist stance from the left side of the political spectrum.

Professional agents provocateurs and amateurs from the “netizen” community have busy posting comments on various web sites to distract and steer post threads away from subjects that are critical of the Obama administration. In addition, WMR has learned that international financier George Soros has stepped up his program to act as a “gate keeper” of the left by contributing more money and staff paid through his various non-profit contrivances to increase his political influence on the left side of the blogosphere.

Various wealthy tycoons on the right, including the Koch brothers, have carried out the same manipulative efforts on the right side of the blogosphere for some time but Soros’s efforts, which seek to mirror the Israel Lobby’s “Give Israel Your United Support” (GIYUS) and its Megaphone desktop computer article and commentary monitoring tool, are the current focus of White House political propaganda operatives, including White House Office of Information Regulatory Affairs chief Cass Sunstein, the mastermind of the program of “cognitive infiltration” of Internet sites by federal government agents and operatives.

The paid operatives who disrupt web sites take a number of tacks. Options include the use of profanity, esecially toward the original poster of an item. But more often, the infiltration takes the form of posting extraneous information to detour the commentary thread away from uncomfortable subjects. For example, if one is participating in a back-and-forth exchange dealing with U.S. Middle East policy, a comment on a great recipe for chili for a Super Bowl party may appear, followed by similar disruptive chili recipes, all from the same originator or group of originators who seek to divert and eventually kill the thread.

In more bold cases, Soros-paid operatives will simply ban individuals from certain sites that are amply funded by the multi-billionaire “disaster capitalist,” thus censoring their future comments temporarily or permanently. There are a number of so-called “progressive” web sites that conduct such operations on a routine basis.

Currently, with the release of certain documents of dubious origin, including pre-selected State Department cables and papers from Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations, the Internet is experiencing the first major salvo in a global information war, one that, like the so-called “war on terrorism,” appears to be permanent. And as with any war, the truth is the first casualty.

With the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) working on new regulations that may corrupt traditional “net neutrality” on the web in favor of more corporate control over access and bandwidth, the word is that Soros’s plans are to further expand his influence on left and center-left websites that deal with politics and social issues — a plan that may forestall the need for an Internet “kill switch.” The Egyptian situation has shown that there are ways around “kill switch” technology for the Internet and cell phone networks. Therefore, as the elites, who recently adjourned form their annual conclave in Davis, Switzerland, where they huddled together over the loss of “stability” [the term equates to the elites’ control of the world] from Cairo to Athens and London to Reykjavik, information manipulators like George Soros and Bill Gates realize that only Sunstein’s “cognitive infiltration” will ensure that Zbigniew Brzezinski’s heralded “global awakening” will remain in a deep coma.

Corporate media distortions put mass media on the side of dictators — and they should meet the same fate — overthrow.

January 31, 2011 — Museum looting and a major information war raging with Wikileaks and the corpo-media

One thing is always true of the kleptocratic syndicate that runs Israel: never let a crisis go to waste. The “made for television” looting of the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities in Cairo, a museum established in 1902 to stem the tide of the systematic theft of Egyptian historical artifacts and relics by unscrupulous western nations, including Britain, may have masked the behind-the-scenes pillaging of artifacts located in museum store rooms, well-beyond the view of visitors.

Viewers of the televised scenes of the looting of the museum on Mariette Pasha Street on Tahrir Square saw roughly ten artifacts lying on the floor, along with broken glass display cases. Oddly, no artifacts from the public galleries were reported stolen. There was a report that the heads of two mummies were removed, but not robbed. Egyptian protesters formed a human chain around the museum in order to protect it from further pillaging. Later, it was reported that some of the “looters” at the museum were actually Egyptian security police masquerading as looters. Or were they?

Zahi Hawass, the Secretary General of Supreme Council on Antiquities, told The Washington Post that during the evening of January 28, looters descended into the museum from ropes. The description of the “looting,” with individuals repelling through broken windows from the roof, appears to be more of professional heist operation than random looting by street mobs. Hawass said about 100 artifacts were broken but that none were particularly precious. However, more ominously, Hawass reported the keys to the museum were stolen. There was no information on whether the keys included those to the store rooms and vaults where the most valuable artifacts are stored.

As with archeological sites throughout Iraq during the U.S. invasion of that country, there are reports of looting around Egypt, including at the site of the first pyramid, as well as numerous tombs, at Saqqara. The Post also reported attempted break-ins at the Coptic Museum, the Royal Jewelery Museum, the National Museum of Alexandria, and El Manial Museum.

On April 14, 2003, this editor reported on the looting of the National Museum in Baghdad as U.S. troops stood idly by: “U.S. troops stood by while Iraqi mobs looted and destroyed artifacts at the National Museum of Iraq in Baghdad. They also reportedly joined looters who pillaged other lucrative targets like office buildings, stores, and private homes. The Bush regime ignored calls from Koichiro Matsura, the head of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), who appealed to the United States to provide protection for Iraqi museums . . . One could feel the pain experienced by the museum’s deputy director when she tearfully told Western journalists that 170,000 priceless artifacts dating back thousands of years to the very cradle of human civilization in the Tigris-Euphrates Valley, the fabled home of the biblical Garden of Eden, were looted or destroyed. She said one tank and one or two American soldiers would have been sufficient to protect the museum from the vandals. But instead, American troops stood idly by while 7000 years of Iraqi history was cleansed. Even irreplaceable archaeological files and computer disks were destroyed. Museum employees blamed U.S. troops for the carnage . . .

What was not destroyed by the Mongols in 1258 was allowed to be destroyed by the Americans in 2003. Gone are the artifacts of ancient Sumeria, Assyria, Babylon, Mesopotamia, Ninevah, and Ur . . . A November 8, 2005 Washington Post article by Guy Gugliotta reported that thousands of stolen artifacts in Iraq are still missing. Only 5,500 of 14,000 relics have been recovered according to a clearly frustrated Marine Corps Colonel Matthew Bogdanos. The most famous artifacts remain missing and there are fears that they have ended up in the international black market for stolen artwork and antiquities — a black market controlled by the Russian-Ukrainian-Israeli Mafia (RUIM), a criminal syndicate with ties deep into the White House and Pentagon . . . Bogdanos said that 8000 small artifacts were stolen from the locked basement of the National Museum in what the colonel described as an ‘inside job.’ . . . It is suspicious that the neo-cons, shortly after reports of museum looting in Iraq were aired around the world, claimed that most of the artifacts had been recovered. That was a lie and a very suspicious cover-up of the facts. Although the Post article claims that the stolen artifacts may eventually wind up in London, Tokyo, or New York through dealers in the Persian Gulf, no mention is made of Tel Aviv, Amsterdam, Antwerp, and Bangkok — the same cities involved with blood diamond smuggling out of Africa and the same network of cities that would be involved in relic smuggling out of Iraq.”

Now, we have witnessed another attack on a national museum in a major Middle East capital city, Cairo, which like the museum in Baghdad, contains relics of great value to the theocratic state of Israel, a nation that believes it has rights to land and property outside its borders based on a set of unsubstantiated tracts of ancient myths and folklore concerning the “captivity” of the Jewish people in Babylon — the former Iraq — and Egypt.

The End of Pax Americana/Judaica in the Middle East

Although both the “Jasmine Revolution” in Tunisia and the so-called “Days of Rage” in Egypt appeared, at the outset, to have been “themed” George Soros/US Agency fior International Development (USAID)/National Endowment for Democracy (NED) seeded revolutions, the Arab Middle East is not eastern or central Europe. The neocon-controlled corporate media, including Wolf Blitzer, Israel’s agent-of-influence bureau chief of CNN News, at first ecstatic over the idea that Arab nations were ushering some sort of pro-globalist governments that would cement ties to Israel and take direction from the World Bank, Council on Foreign Relations, and the Zionist Haim Saban Center at the Brookings Institution, their hopes were soon dashed.

After it became clear that Tunisia’s and Egypt’s post-regime governments would include so-called Islamists from Ennadha and the Muslim Brotherhood, respectively, the tune changed from CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, and other networks that receive their agenda and talking points from the Israel Lobby and Israeli government-sponsored media orgasnizations like the Search for International Terrorist Entities (SITE) and the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI). The corporate media line, echoed by President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, was that the transitions to democracy in Egypt and Tunisia had to be “orderly.” That is neocon “Newspeak” for no “Islamist” roles in the new governments.

After Vice President Biden opined that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was not a dictator and that the most important aspect of U.S.-Egyptian relations was Egyptian support for the peace treaty with Israel, as if that is all that matters for U.S. policy in the Middle East, the Obama administration began to get nervous about its future relations with a post-Mubarak Egyptian government. All of a sudden, new Wikileaks material appeared via the neocon Daily Telegraph of the UK, the same paper that proffered piffle about Saddam Hussein and his “threat” to the West.

The cables cited by the “Torygraph” included a December 30, 2008 cable from U.S. ambassador in Cairo Margaret Scobey to the State Department stating that an unnamed Egyptian activist was funded by the embassy to attend an “Alliance of Youth Movements Summit in New York. The selective release of the cable in question, one sent in the transition phase between the Bush and Obama administrations, is proof, yet again, of the conspiracy between the Obama administration and the information/psychological warfare contrivance known as “Wikileaks” and its now-revealed whack-job founder, the CIA evading, cross-dressing Julian Assange. A neocon broad sheet in London hyped a meaningless cable and suggested that it was proof that the U.S. was covertly backing the overthrow of its ally, Mubarak, in the waning days of the Bush administration in December 2008. People were expected to believe that even if such plans existed, they would be contained in a mere “Secret” cable from Cairo to Washington, bypassing the ultra-secret channels of the CIA and National Security Agency. The release of the cable was nothing more than an attempt by the Obama administration to set up a straw man to show some past disagreement with Mubarak in order to gain favor with the Egyptian opposition. The scam did not work.

The new leader of the unified Egyptian opposition, Mohammed ElBaradei, the former International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) director who was on the neocon “hit list” for hs insistence that neither Saddam Hussein nor Mahmoud Ahmadinejad were pursuing nuclear weapons, declared that the United States had lost all credibility in Egypt. ElBaradei soon found himself being called a “stooge of Iran” by one of the typical Jewish leadership whiners in the United States — Malcolm Hoenlein, the executive vice-president of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.

The U.S. double game of trying to appear supportive of the popular revolt against Mubarak while covertly providing Egypt with all kinds of military and intelligence support, including Internet jamming systems from the Boeing-owned and Israeli-founded firm Narus, and tear gas canisters made in Pennsylvania, is now known throughout every city and village in Egypt. And there will be an eventual accounting for America’s perfidy in Egypt. Making matters worse was Mubarak’s choice of Egyptian intelligence chief Omar Suleiman as his vice president. Suleiman crafted Egypt’s participation in the CIA’s rendition and torture program.

The Daily Telegraph claptrap that was passed off as “journalism” did contain one important gem — that the U.S. embassy paid for the travel to New York of an activist obviously identified and selected by the vast array of Soros, NED, USAID, and other non-governmental organizations that specialize in “themed” revolutions.

But whatever the intent of the Soros, USAID, Freedom House gang and their ilk, the Egyptian Revolution took on monumental and unified proportions never before seen in Egypt. From the Muslim Brotherhood to the secular opposition and youth movements, Egypt is united against Mubarak.

When it was clear that the Egyptian revolution would not be stage-managed by the West, it was time for a set change by the U.S. media. Zionist propagandists like Wolf Blitzer began warning of the danger of an Iranian-style Islamist government in Egypt. After Tunisia’s Islamist opposition leader returned from exile in Britain and Yemen’s President Ali Abdullah Saleh faced mass demonstrations, the Israel Lobby-influenced producers and editors received new marching orders to inject through their media prisms the notion that if Mubarak fell, a new Islamist-dominated government would scrap the peace treaty with Israel. The Israeli government also weighed in, telling the United States and European governments to temper their criticism of Mubarak. Tne only thing missing from Israel and its amen chorus in the United States was a suggestion that criticism of Mubarak is akin to “anti-Semitism,” the usual refrain from the Lobby’s loudest cantors.

And, as always, the specter of the fictional “Al Qaeda” and its equally-fictional Maghreb and Arabian Peninsula franchises, was trotted out by the corpo-media and its Zionist overseers to suggest that Al Qaeda would take advantage of the turmoil in Tunisia, Yemen, and Egypt to commit acts of terrorism in those countries.

Groups like the Saban Center’s Brookings Doha Center in Qatar, which appears to only exist in order to force-feed Israeli propaganda into the mouth of Al Jazeera, which is headquartered also in Doha, began to parade its “experts” on Al Jazeera to suggest that the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood posed an Iranian-like danger to Egypt and that ElBaradei was weak and virtually unknown inside Egypt. France 24, the Sarkozy-run news channel, repeated the same meme. The Israelis and their shills like NBC’s David Gregory, who once admitted that he performs his journalistic duties based on his Jewish teachings [how long would a Muslim-American anchorman, totally fictional, of course, last if he said he reported the news based on his teachings from the Koran?] began to stress that “stability” in Egypt was more important than human rights. The “stability” meme was echoed by Israel’s puppets, including Hillary Clinton, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, and British Foreign Secretary William Hague.

Hillary Clinton has now called most of America’s ambassadors, consuls, and envoys back to Washington for an unprecedented meeting. Obama and his faltering nation cannot put the Middle East popular revolt genie back into the bottle. The popular Arab revolt will spread like wildfire to Yemen, where the U.S. should prepare itself for the restored independence of a popular socialist-oriented republic in South Yemen; Sudan; Mauritania; Morocco, where the U.S. also should prepare itself for an independent Western Sahara; Jordan; and the biggest fish, Saudi Arabia. After being ordered out of progressive Latin America, the failing and sick United States is facing expulsion from the Arab Middle East.

The “perfect storm” of global banker-imposed austerity measures and currency chicanery and market manipulation that has resulted in high food prices and massive unemployment also enters into the equation in Egypt and North Africa. Like their comrades across the Mediterranean in Greece, France, Italy, and Spain, the North Africans are tired of corrupt governments that enrich themselves courtesy of the global elites while they starve. Without the ability to change their governments through elections, the North African economic revolt also took on major political dimensions. The corporate media, while spinning the events in Cairo and Tunis, avoided covering the street demonstrations throughout Italy where people banging pots and pans demanded the ouster of Italy’s corrupt media billionaire, the mafiosi sex maniac Silvio Berlusconi. Massive protests by Albanian socialists against that nation’s kleptrocracy were also denied coverage by the U.S. info-tainment media outlets masquerading as news organizations. Tne corpo-media will do anything to avoid giving any indication that a worldwide popular revolution is getting into high gear, one that will eventually see the ouster of autocratic and corrupt regimes throughout the Middle East, Africa, remaining parts of Latin America, as well as Africa, the Far East, and Europe. For the Middle East, the dramatic developments unfolding on the streets of Cairo, Tunis, and other cities means the final end of Pax Americana/Judaica in the region.

FBI and NSA gearing up for massive personal data grab with backing of House Republicans.

January 28-30, 2011 — How 9/11 began the process of a massive grab by the government of personal data

With the neo-fascist Republican Party now in charge of the House of Representatives, there is proposed data retention legislation that would give the FBI virtual unfettered access to stored Internet transactional data from a variety of service providers with or without a criminal predicate. Democrats like Debbie Wasserman-Shultz from Florida also support the proposed mandatory data retention legislation. Government “fishing expeditions” for personal data had its beginning in the weeks after 9/11. This hunger for personal data has culminated in a massive $1.5 billion National Security Agency data warehouse now under construction at Camp Williams in Utah.

Although NSA insists that it will have few analysts at its new data warehouse, the NSA Utah Data Center, the government’s grab for Internet user data clearly shows intent by NSA to conduct more sophisticated forms of data mining, extraction, and analysis than NSA and other federal agencies sought in the weeks and months after 9/11. JetBlue provided passenger data to a firm called Torch Concepts, a defense contractor based in Huntsville, Alabama, that had major plans to apply military- and intelligence-level data analysis programs to the American public. American and Delta Airlines had rejected requests for their passenger data by Torch.

Torch’s conclusions were that poorer people who did not live in their homes for a long period of time time posed a greater terrorist risk (passenger stability indicator) than wealthier long-term homeowners.

The Census Bureau is also vulnerable to seeing its massive databases acquired by NSA Utah for data mining purposes. This editor previously reported on the value of U.S. Census data to intelligence analysts in 2004:

HOMELAND SECURITY MINES CENSUS DATA FILES

Possible Violation of Federal Law

By Wayne Madsen

According to US Census Bureau documents, the U.S. Census Bureau shared confidential census data files with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Of particular interest to DHS were census files on U.S. citizens of Arab ancestry sorted by individual ZIP code tabulation areas. In a U.S. Census Bureau memo dated April 23, 2004, a senior systems analyst with the Population Division writes to DHS that “my superiors are now asking questions about the usage of the data, given the sensitivity of different data requests we have received about the Arab population.”

The Branch Officer of the DHS Customs and Border Protection Bureau’s Container Security Division Operational Support and Oversight Branch responds to the Census Bureau concern by stating that the information on Americans of Arab ancestry is required for “U.S. Outbound operations; which include both cargo and passenger operations.” The Branch Chief continues by stating, “at U.S. International airports, U.S. Customs posts signage informing various nationalities of the U.S. Customs regulations to report currency brought into the US upon entry. Current regulations require passengers bringing more than $10,000 into the U.S. to claim it on a currency entry declaration . . . My reason for asking for U.S. demographic data is to aid the Outbound Passenger Program Officer in identifying which language of signage, based on U.S. ethnic nationality population, would be best to post at the major International airports. Some cases this would identify multiple copies needed of a specific language sign versus other cities only one copy.”

The Branch Chief then assures Census, “the data obtained from Census was used only for the above purpose and subsequently has been purged from my files!” Although the Branch Chief’s name was blocked out in the released documents, the names of two DHS officials involved in the Census data request, Jerome A. Walfish and Mark S. Ziner, were not redacted.

Privacy experts point out that the reasoning given by DHS for obtaining the Arab ancestry files has some major flaws. One, is why someone involved with Outbound operations would be concerned with entry currency declarations. Another is why DHS requested data files on Arab ancestry populations in New England that include a number of second, third, and fourth generation Maronite Christian Lebanese whose language is English and would, therefore, not require airport signage written in Arabic.

The confidentiality of U.S. Census data is established in federal law. Title 13 U.S.C. Section 9, states that U.S. census data is confidential. In addition, Title 13, U.S.C. Section 9 (a) (a) states that non-employees of the Census Bureau must take an “oath of non disclosure,” and must be special sworn status (SSS) officers if they are from another department or agency. There is no indication that DHS personnel who viewed the confidential Census records were special sworn status officers of the Census Bureau.

DHS was particularly interested in a 2000 Census file denoting the “population of Arab ancestry” from all places in the United States with 10,000 or more population. The information would be helpful in the possible targeting by DHS of cities with large percentages of Arab-American citizens, particularly Dearborn, Michigan with a 30.01 percent Arab-American population; Bailey’s Crossroads, Virginia, 0.69 percent; Hamtramck, Michigan, 9.39 percent; Dearborn Heights, Michigan, 7.86 percent; Bridgeview, Illinois, 7.18; Tyson’s Corner, Virginia, 6.53 percent; and Lackawanna, New York, 5.83. Lackawanna is home to the “Lackawanna Six,” six Yemeni-Americans who were convicted of aiding Al Qaeda. There were allegations of U.S. Justice Department prosecutorial misconduct in the case against the six, mainly that the government threatened to indefinitely jail the six in a military detention facility unless they voluntarily pleaded guilty to terrorism charges.

In addition, DHS was provided with very detailed Arab-American demographic data from the states of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire, and the commonwealth territory of Puerto Rico. In the case of New Hampshire, the census data yielded some very definitive information on Arab-Americans broken down by ZIP codes into small towns and cities. In the case of Nashua, New Hampshire, the combined ZIP codes of 03060,03062, 03063, and 03064 indicates the presence of 269 Lebanese-Americans. This community of Maronite Christian Catholics includes some of New Hampshire’s best-known politicians and their families, including current Republican Senator John E. Sununu and his three children and former Nashua Mayor Brenda Elias.

In the case of Salem, New Hampshire (ZIP code 03079), the 594 Lebanese Americans include former New Hampshire Republican Governor and chief of staff to former President George H. W. Bush, John H. Sununu, the father of Senator Sununu. In Bedford (ZIP code 03110), the 44 Lebanese-Americans in the town include members of the Sununu family. In the case of Dover (ZIP Code 03820), the Lebanese-American community includes Bill Shaheen, the husband of former Democratic Governor Jeanne Shaheen, and their three children. Jeanne Shaheen is currently the national co-chair of Senator John Kerry’s presidential campaign.*

DHS also obtained specific breakdowns of Iraqi-Americans and Palestinian-Americans. In certain towns, where their respective populations are low, it would not be difficult for DHS to ascertain the identities of the individuals by family unit. Such are the cases with the Iraqi-American populations of the Massachusetts towns of Longmeadow (7 people), Andover (8 people), Cambridge (6 people), Chelsea (8 people), and East Providence, Rhode Island (5 people). The same situation applies to Palestinian-Americans in the census records where the breakdown shows 5 members of that ancestry in Springfield, Massachusetts and 3 in Londonderry, New Hampshire.

* Shaheen is now the senior Senator from New Hampshire.

January 27-28, 2011 — The Lobby pulls out its “ace card” at the UN

Spurred on by an Israeli-front group called “UN Watch,” the rapporteur for the UN Human Rights Council, Princeton professor Richard Falk, has come in for heavy criticism from “The Lobby,” including the American Jewish Committee (AJC), for his endorsing “9/11 conspiracy theories.” Falk, who is Jewish, has been a thorn in the side of “The Lobby” ever since he was appointed as rapporteur of the UN Human Rights Council in 2008. Falk is an outspoken critic of the Israeli apartheid regime and he backed boycotts and sanctions of Israel.

A statement by the AJC said “Falk has long been a conspiracy-ridden and harmful figure who surely does not serve the best interests of the UN.” AJC’s chief whiner David Harris, said, “The UN must now, at long last, do the right thing and fire Richard Falk.”

US ambassador to the UN Susan Rice, Madeleine Albright’s gnome-like god daughter, also harshly criticized Falk. Rice’s press release is as follows:

USUN PRESS RELEASE #012
January 25, 2011

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Statement by Ambassador Susan E. Rice, U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations, January 25, 2011

I am appalled by the recent personal blog written by Richard Falk, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on “the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967.”

In this blog post, dated January 11, 2011, Mr. Falk endorses the slurs of conspiracy theorists who allege that the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks were perpetrated and then covered up by the U.S. government and media.

Mr. Falk’s comments are despicable and deeply offensive, and I condemn them in the strongest terms. I have registered a strong protest with the UN on behalf of the United States. The United States has in the past been critical of Mr. Falk’s one-sided and politicized approach to his work for the UN, including his failure to condemn deliberate human rights abuses by Hamas, but these blog comments are in another category altogether.

In my view, Mr. Falk’s latest commentary is so noxious that it should finally be plain to all that he should no longer continue in his position on behalf of the UN. I would note that U.S. and many other diplomats walked out in protest in September 2010 when Iranian President Ahmadinejad made similarly slanderous remarks before the UN General Assembly.

The United States is deeply committed to the cause of human rights and believes that cause will be better advanced without Mr. Falk and the distasteful sideshow he has chosen to create.

———————————–

And as could be expected, “The Lobby,” which has gained more influence at the UN under Secretary General Bank Ki-moon than it has enjoyed in a number of years, pulled out its “ace card” two days following the attack on Falk and the same day that Iran was elected chairman of the UN’s Group of 77 (G-77) coalition of developing nations. The G-77 works closely with the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).

On January 27, the UN Press Office announced a number of events at UN headquarters:

Special Events: International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust Memorial ceremony on the theme “Women and the Holocaust: Courage and compassion” (organized by the Holocaust and the United Nations Outreach Programme, Outreach Division, Department of Public Information).
Remarks by Ambassador Sylvie Lucas, Vice President of the General Assembly and Permanent Representative of Luxembourg to the UN, Ambassador Susan Rice, Permanent Representative of the United States to the UN, and Ambassador Meron Reuben, Permanent Representative of Israel to the UN.

Panel Discussion: on “The survivors, 1945-2011: Struggles and peserverance” (co-organized by the Permanent Mission of Romania and B’nai B’rith International)

Roundtable Discussion: on “A world without Nazism – A global goal for humanity today and the sixty-fifth anniversary of the Nuremberg trials” (co-organized by the Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation, the United Nations Department of Public Information, the International Human Rights Movement “World Without Nazism” and the American Forum on Russian Jewry)

Falk’s uncomfortable truths are anathema to a number of Jewish and Christian Zionists. Falk recently wrote: “For me to be Jewish is, above all, to be preoccupied with overcoming injustice and thirsting for justice in the world, and that means being respectful toward other peoples regardless of their nationality or religion, and empathetic in the face of human suffering whoever and wherever victimization is encountered. With this orientation, I could, but will not, return the insult, and say that those who endorse the cruelties of Israel occupation policies are the real self-hating Jews as they have turned away from the moral clarity of Old Testament prophets, which is the shining light of the Old Testament overcoming the often bloody exploits of the ancient Israelites. So interpreted, the biblical mandate for just behavior extends to all of humanity. As the great Rabbi Hillel teaches, “[T]hat which is hateful to you do not do to another..the rest (of the Torah) is all commentary, now go study.”

To that one can only say one word, “amen.”

Wikileaks cable and Palestinian Papers follow a pattern of the release of dubious documents to advance the neocon cause.

January 26-27, 2011 — The Wikileaks information war, courtesy of Sweden

The Departments of Defense and Justice, after treating Army Private First Class Bradley Manning as an “enemy combatant” with no rights under either the US Constitution or the Uniform Code of Military Justice, have now indicated they have failed to draw a link between the Wikileaks disclosure of over a quarter-million classified State Department cables and Manning. This disclosure means that the cables ended up in the hands of Wikileaks via another channel.

WMR has learned from informed sources in the United States and Sweden that the Swedish government, led by Moderate Party Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt, is part and parcel of the “laundering” of the State Department cables. The selective leaking of the cables was largely designed by George Soros’s Open Society Institute and his closely-linked CIA and Israeli interests to trigger popular rebellions in certain countries, particularly Tunisia, Algeria, Egypt, and Yemen, that were the subject of a many of the leaked cables.

The Wikileaks caper represents a major paradigm shift in the carrying out of information warfare campaigns using the Internet and social networking technologies like Twitter and Facebook.

Sweden was the natural place for the new information warfare planners to launder the Wikileaks documents. Sweden is officially neutral and, as was seen in the case of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, a “safe haven” for political exiles, or in Assange’s case, at least a temporary safe haven until his libido apparently got the best of him.

However, the governing Moderate Party is anything but “moderate.” The party’s prime minister from 1991 to 1994 and its leader from 1986 to 1999 was Carl Bildt,the nation;s present Foreign Minister who is a veteran of one of the birthplaces of information warfare, the Rand Corporation, a major Pentagon and CIA contractor. The major benefactors of Sweden’s Moderate Party and its two most influential politicians — Reinfeldt and Bildt — are the Swedish Wallenbergs, a world-renowned family that controls a large portfolio of companies in Sweden and abroad.

Through Investor, an investment firm, and FAM, its foundation investment company, the Wallenberg’s own some 40 percent of publicly-traded firms traded in Sweden. Jacob Wallenberg serves on the board of the Wallenberg family bank, Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken, and Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS). And the Wallnbergs have a controlling interest in Zurich-based ABB, a huge global industrial giant on whose board once sat Donald Rumsfeld, the former U.S. Secretary of Defense who funded a large part of the Pentagon’s information warfare and perception management programs. Rumsfeld served on ABB’s board in 2000, the year that the firm sold two nuclear power plants to North Korea. And in 2001, and this is where it really begins to get interesting, ABB pleaded guilty to rigging bids for U.S.government-funded building projects in Egypt, with the suspicion that bribes ended up in the pockets of the Mubarak family, who are now facing a major popular insurrection partly as a result of the Wikileaks disclosures. Working closely with the Wallenbergs are the Rothschilds, for whom George Soros is an international front man. Foreign Minister Bildt counts Soros as one of his “good friends” and he has referred to war criminal Henry Kissinger as his “idol.” The Rothschild interests in Sweden are looked after by P.G. Gyllenhammer, the CEO of N M Rothschild & Sons Scandinavia.

Currently, the Wallenberg business enterprise is negotiating with the Obama administration to purchase enough stock of the NASDAQ to give the Wallenbergs a seat on NASDAQ’s board.

Sweden is also a hotbed for “new world order” advocates with deep pockets. The Tallberg Foundation, which includes former UN official Jan Eliasson on its board, sponsors elitist conferences at which plans for increased globalization are discussed. One such conferences is schedules next month in Voksenasen, in the mountains above Oslo, the Norwegian capital.

The Wallenbergs and Swedish branch of the Rothschilds were never comfortable with the left-wing policies of Sweden’s Social Democrats, particularly their last popular Prime Minister, Olof Palme. Palme not only advanced socialist policies in Sweden but actively supported them abroad, even granting a number of progressive banned groups political sylum in Sweden. Palme was assassinated, the first of its kind in modern-day Sweden, in 1986. Palme’s assassination in a Stockholm street remains unsolved but many Swedes believe that Palme’s opposition to some of the world’s most brutal dictatorships, regimes that were customers for Sweden’s Wallenberg-owned military-industrial complex, including Nobel Industries and the Bofors weapons manufacturing firm, made the Swedish industrialists angry. Palme’s assassination paved the way for Bildt, a bitter opponent of Palme’s foreign policy, to become Sweden’s first Moderate Party prime minister, in 1991. The Moderate Party was totally in the pockets of the Swedish defense industry, including the Wallenberg family. In 2003, Swedish Social Democratic Foreign Minister Anna Lindh, who began to echo some of Palme’s original policies, especially on the Middle East, was, like Palme, assassinated in Stockholm.

This brings us to Sweden’s role in the Wikileaks affair. The corporate media is reporting that some of the State Department disclosures from U.S. embassies in Tunisia, Egypt, and other Arab countries have led, in part, to the de facto “themed revolutions” in Tunisia and Egypt, including obviously U.S.-sponsored “Day of Rage” protests in Lebanon and Yemen. Focus has been on U.S. embassy Tunis cables from January 2006 to June 2009 that focused on Ben Ali’s family as a virtual mafia involved in bribes and extortion to enrich themselves. What the selective release of cables did not state was that Ben Ali and his regime were partners of the U.S., including the Pentagon and CIA, in the torture of renditioned detainees and the suppression of domestic groups linked to Islamist causes.

Although the protesters in Tunisia and Egypt have legitimate grievances against the deposed President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali and Hosni Mubarak, respectively, the neocons and Zionist shills in London, Washington, and New York have been hyping the demonstrations as “Eastern European”-style revolutions, including those that took place against communist governments in the late 1980s and the more recent Soros-funded “colored” revolutions in Ukraine, Georgia, and Kyrgyzstan. However, that is where the neocons get it wrong.

The popular uprisings by the people in Tunisia and Egypt, as well as other countries, being referred to as “Winds of Change” across the Arab World by the corporatist media, have more to do with the economic situations in their countries. The plight of the Tunisian, Egyptian, Lebanese, and Algerian people is no different than that of the Greeks, Albanians, Irish, British, Italians, and Spanish who have stormed government and banking facilities in their own nations. And the “Arab Street” understands perfectly well who is behind the corrupt regimes that have destroyed their nations’ economies: the global bankers and globalists. The Arab Street, unlike Western-backed dictators like Mubarak and Ben Ali, do have affinity for the plight of the people of Palestine and U.S.-occupied Iraq and Afghanistan, and opening the floodgates of the Arab Street on the presidential palaces and rump parliaments of Arab dictatorships will have unintended consequences for the bankers and neocon media moguls in their plush offices and homes in Europe and the United States. Egyptians are well-aware of Mubarak’s ill-treatment of the people of Gaza by his incessant blocking of international aid convoys via Egypt to Gaza, brutality only exceeded by the Israeli regime. The neocons’ “winds of change” may one day blow their beloved Israel off the map, replaced by a secular “Republic of Palestine,” where an Arab majority would rule without the specter of apartheid and second-class status to a religious elite who claim nonsensical “divine” rights to land and political power.

The release of the “Palestine papers,” which are of dubious origin and authenticity, by Al Jazeera, which has increasingly become infiltrated by globalists and neocons, is merely another attempt at pulling off a Wikileaks-type operation to destabilize Palestine at a time when governments around the world are recognizing the independence of Palestine within 1967 borders and Palestine is gaining more and more international good will at the expense of the Zionists and lebensraum expansionists who govern Israel.

The neocon media hacks and policy wonks mistakenly believe that liberal and pro-Israel progressives will accede to power in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, Sudan, Algeria, Libya, Syria, and other Arab countries. They are wrong, dead wrong. Just as democratic elections resulted in success at the polls for Hamas in Palestine and Hezbollah in Lebanon, the Arab masses have no time for Israel and its major supporters, the United States, Sarkozy in France, and the three major British political parties. The Tunisian masses realize that if it were not for Sarkozy and his Zionist-backed government in Paris, Ben Ali would not have lasted in power in Tunisia for as long as he did. There was clearly an attempt to co-opt the Tunisian revolution by globalists, something that Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi stated in recent remarks. Qaddafi said he supported the Tunisian revolution but was concerned that the popular masses could see their uprising detoured by outside influences. Qaddafi also said that the Wikileaks cable release resulted from “lying ambassadors in order to create chaos.”

In Yemen, a U.S. ally in the war against “terrorism,” protesters have taken to the streets to demand the ouster of President Ali Abdullah Saleh. However, Yemen is not Tunisia. The former People’s Democratic Republic of Yemen, a socialist nation where labor unions headquartered in Aden had significant influence, was united with North Yemen in 1990, the result of globalist intrigue as the Soviet Union collapsed, leaving Moscow’s ally, South Yemen, vulnerable. South Yemen wants its independence restored and many of the anti-Saleh protesters support the former socialist leaders of South Yemen: Ali Salem al-Baidh, Ali Nasser Mohammed, and Haidar Abu Bakr al-Attas. The globalists, who have engineered the independence of South Sudan, which will be a U.S. and Israeli vassal state with a lot of oil, do not want to see South Yemen come back, a nation that will trumpet workers’ rights and progressive socialism. Just as Qaddafi warned about detouring popular revolts, Sheikh Tarek al-Fadhli has entered the fray, burning the South Yemeni independence flag, along with that of unified Yemen. Al-Fadhli fought with Saleh against the South in the 1994 civil war. But before that, Fadhli fought in Afghanistan with the forces of Osama Bin Laden. After the defeat of the South in 1994, al-Fadhli raised the American and British flags on his palace in southern Yemen. It seems that Bin Laden’s friends and allies are always on call when they are most needed by Washington, London, and Tel Aviv. Al Fadhli is now trying to hijack the Yemeni revolution by stamping out South Yemen’s desire for restoration of its independence.

While the neocon corporatist media hails self-immolation suicides and street protests in Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, Lebanon, Yemen, Sudan, and Mauritania, it studiously avoid mentioning Morocco, where a U.S.- and Israeli-supported king reigns and where Moroccan troops illegally occupy Western Sahara. Moroccans and Sahrawis have no more rights than their fellow Arabs in Algeria, Egypt, and Yemen. But what Morocco does have is a pro-Israeli U.S. embassy that ensures that Morocco and its American Jewish and Israeli-owned golf courses, resorts, and condominiums remain safe from a popular uprising by the Moroccan and Sahrawi peoples. Hence, Mr. Assange and his Wallenberg and Soros handlers did not see fit to release any cables from Rabat that would place King Mohammed VI and his royal court in a bad light.
