As 9/11 approaches, it’s time to pump up the official narrative. With Osama Bin Laden long retired from the scary story, it’s time to introduce mama Sim Laden and baby Sim Laden. Baby Sim Laden has a lot of work to do if he wants to fill Daddy’s shoes.
“I was shocked, stunned,” he says now of the early reports from New York. “It was a very strange feeling. We knew from the beginning [that it was Osama], within the first 48 hours. From the youngest to the eldest, we all felt ashamed of him. We knew all of us were going to face horrible consequences.
Ever wonder who the super duper tewwowist was before Bin Laden? I present to you Abu Nidal.
Abu Nidal was one of the world’s most ruthless terrorist leaders through the late 1990s. Primarily active in the 1970s and 1980s on the ultra-hardline fringe of the Palestine Liberation Organization and later the rejectionist front, Abu Nidal targeted Arab politicians and activists who were “soft” on the Israeli issue. Jews of all nationalities as well as political representatives of Western nations were also targets, especially those involved in the peace process in the Middle East.
Abu Nidal was born in Jaffa, on the Mediterranean coast of what was then the British Mandate of Palestine. His father, Hajj Khalil al-Banna, owned 6,000 acres (24 km2) of orange groves situated between Jaffa and Majdal, today Ashkelon in Israel. The family lived in luxury in a three-storey stone house near the beach, later used as an Israeli military court. Muhammad Khalil al-Banna, Abu Nidal’s brother, told Yossi Melman:
For someone so notorious, there is the usual paucity of pictures. Don’t tewwowists have their own paparazzi?
A very good podcast laying out how law enforcement skirts around illegal entrapment and builds fake terrorists out of otherwise law abiding citizens.
In 2006, a new convert showed up at a mosque in Orange County, California, eager to study the Koran and make new friends. But when he started acting odd and saying strange things, those friends got suspicious. To them, he was Farouk al-Aziz. But his real name was Craig Monteilh, and he was working undercover for the FBI.
Mark sums up perfectly who Gates and Zuckerberg are.
It helps to know that none of our great entrepreneur class of the modern era are true geniuses. Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Richard Branson, Elon Musk, Larry Page, Sergey Brin and Mark Zuckerberg are all spook creations. Perhaps they were allowed to succeed as they did using DARPA technology without having knowledge of its origins. More likely, they are cardboard cutouts used to mask the Intel work going on behind them. …
STASI was the acronym for Ministerium für Staatssicherheit, the feared East German secret police of the Cold War era, much like our own FBI*. They were limited in manpower, and technology of the time prevented them from spying on everyone, but they had a better idea anyway. If people thought they were being spied on, it would have the same effect! So STASI made a great show of spreading rumors, arresting people in public, and looking menacing. Newspapers there, just like ours under state control, would highlight its activities, thereby intimidating the East German people into submission.It worked.
That’s all that is going on with Reed, Scahill, Greenwald and Omidyar. They are reinforcing the notion that we are being spied on. That’s their job. Edward Snowden may be a real person, but he is not holed up in Russia. As soon as we were sold the idea that he was real and on the run, he probably went on to a new assignment. Like Charles Manson, he makes a public appearance now and then to seal the impression. He’s not holed up in Russia, he never had any documents, his dramatic escape through Hong Kong was scripted.
