Never mind that “liquid bombs” are fantastical nonsense,
or there is no evidence those arrested—more accurately, disappeared—in
Britain plotted to blow up planes (no bombs, no airline tickets, no passports),
the corporate media, having established the now widely believed Brothers Grimm
story of Muslim perfidy by way of household chemicals, has moved to the next
“An al-Qaeda operative who masterminded the alleged plot to blow up airliners
over the Atlantic is hiding in mountainous terrain in north-eastern Afghanistan,
a Pakistan intelligence official has claimed,” reports the Scotsman.
“Although his name and nationality have not been revealed, the suspect
allegedly exchanged messages, carried by a courier, with detained British national
Rashid Rauf, who is being interrogated by Pakistani authorities in connection
with the alleged plot that was smashed last week with at least 30 people arrested
in both Britain and Pakistan.”
As usual, a bit of translation is required: the “al-Qaeda operative,”
in fact a Jaish-e-Mohammed (an ISI, thus CIA, creation) patsy, has told his
“interrogators,” that is to say torturers, whatever they want to
hear, or what the United States and Britain want to hear in order to lend a
veneer of credence, no matter how suspect and transparent, to their Brothers
Grimm story of perfidious Muslims who hate our freedom so much they rummaged
under their sinks in search of explosive cleaners.
Of course, at the heart of this fairy tale, al-Qaeda lurks. “Rauf was
in touch with the al-Qaeda operative through a courier from Afghanistan who
would cross the porous, mountainous frontier separating Afghanistan and Pakistan
to deliver messages, the official said.”
But this “courier” is hardly your run-of-the-mill operative, he
is instead “a close aide to Egyptian-born al-Qaeda No2 Ayman al-Zawahri,”
thus “al-Zawahri probably approved the plan to blow up passenger planes
leaving London for the United States by detonating disguised liquid explosives
carried on board in hand luggage.”
For those of us who venture beyond reading the ticker down in the lower
third of the screen on Fox News, the idea Ayman al-Zawahiri is behind this nefarious
non-plot makes perfect sense, as he is an intelligence asset par excellence.
“Ayman al-Zawahiri headed up the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, the ‘covert-overt’
militant arm of the CIA-MI6 penetrated Muslim Brotherhood,” I wrote earlier
this year. “His brother, Zaiman, ran terrorist camps under NATO protection
in the U.S. zone in Kosovo (it’s a family affair). You’d think no
self-respecting hater of the Great Satan would live in America, and yet al-Zawahiri,
according to January 2000 U.S. Congressional testimony, was granted U.S. residence
by the Immigration and Naturalization Service, something almost impossible for
many legitimate immigrants to obtain (unless they enjoy CIA clearance).”
But never mind. Our Ministry of Fantastic Stories, otherwise known
as the corporate media, more accurately described as the stenographic wing of
the neocon-dominated government, has spent a lot of time and effort building
Ayman al-Zawahiri into an archfiend of illustrious and scary Freddy Kruger proportion,
second only to Osama, who we hear from on occasion, no matter a recent Osama
tape is “like a voice from the grave,” not surprising as Osama died
some time ago.
