Leave it up to the corporate media to ignore the obvious and continue
to push the original Brothers Grimm fairy tale about liquid bombers taking out
jetliners because they hate our freedoms.
For instance, the chief patsy in the supposed terror plot—a plot sans
any compelling evidence, or for that matter any evidence, period—Rashid
Rauf, “is a close relative of Jaish-e-Mohammed leader Masood Azhar,”
according to NDTV.
Not mentioned here is the fact Jaish-e-Mohammed is a creature of Pakistan’s
Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), that is to say the CIA. “During the
Soviet-Afghan war of the 1980s saw the enhancement of the covert action capabilities
of the ISI by the CIA,” notes the decidedly less than conspiratorial Wikipedia.
“A number of officers from the ISI’s Covert Action Division received
training in the US and many covert action experts of the CIA were attached to
the ISI to guide it in its operations against the Soviet troops by using the
Afghan Mujahideen, Islamic fundamentalists of Pakistan and Arab volunteers.”
“While collaborating in the British investigation, Pakistan’s Military
Intelligence is known to have actively supported and financed the Kasmir rebel
groups, which allegedly had contacts with the London bombers,” Michel
Chossudovsky explained in the wake of the July 7, 2005, London bombings.
“The ISI was instrumental in the creation of the militant Jammu and Kashmir
Hizbul Mujahideen (JKHM) in the late 1980s. (See K. Subrahmanyam, ‘Pakistan
is Pursuing Asian Goals’, India Abroad, 3 November 1995). It has also
supported the other two main Pakistan-based Kashmir rebel groups, Lashkar-e-Taiba,
(Army of the Pure) and Jaish-e-Muhammad (Army of Mohammed), which claimed responsibility
for the attacks on the Indian parliament in October 2001…. Moreover, according
to intelligence sources and the FBI, the ISI also provided support to the alleged
Naturally, in order to portray Rauf in an even more sinister light, we are
told he “deserted” the ISI Kashmir operation “and joined Al
Qaeda,” according to Hafiz Allah Bukhsh, the father of Jaish-e-Mohammed
leader Masood Azhar. In effect, this may be viewed as a lateral promotion, as
al-Qaeda is an ISI-CIA collaborative project as well, even though Jaish-e-Mohammed
and al-Qaeda are portrayed as rivals.
In an effort to insert distance between Pakistan’s thug leader Pervez
Musharraf—installed after the ISI decided the former thug-in-residence,
Brig Imtiaz, had to go—and the ISI created and nurtured militant groups
in Kashmir, the corporate media reported Musharraf “banned several militant
groups, including Jaish, in 2002? and as a result some “groups splintered
and transformed after the ban and some members left to join Al Qaeda, experts
say,” reports the International
“Pakistani intelligence officials say Rauf was arrested in Bahawalpur
on Aug. 9, just hours before British police detained 24 people suspected of
being part of a plot to blow up passenger planes bound for the United States,”
the IHT explains. “Because of the Bahawalpur connection, suspicions in
the airline bomb plot inevitably fell on Jaish and affiliated militant organizations
like Jamaat-ul-Furqa, although Pakistani officials were quick to identify Rauf
as a member of Al Qaeda.”
In short, Pakistan is attempting to divert attention from its pet project in
Kashmir, aimed at India’s occupation of the Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh
region. As well, shifting attention away from Jaish-e-Mohammed to al-Qaeda takes
heat off the cozy relationship between the ISI and the CIA, not that the corporate
media can be expected to highlight such well-established connections.
Once again, it is transparently obvious the latest supposed terrorist
threat was concocted by the usual suspects, the intelligence apparatus in the
United States and Britain, expressly devised to ram through yet more draconian
legislation—to wit, a further undermining of the Bill of Rights, as Chertoff
recently suggested (increased surveillance and longer detention of citizens
without formal charge), a cynical ploy to rob Americans of their birthright,
as the fascist elite has decided they can no longer tolerate constitutional
law, a tradition stretching back to Magna Carta.
