Nine years ago, on the 9th of September 2001, the leader of the Northern Alliance Commander Ahmad Shah Masood was mortally wounded in a kamikaze assassination. This event has a direct bearing not only on our understanding of 9/11 but also on the US-NATO sponsored war and occupation of Afghanistan.
Had Shah Masood not been assassinated, the US administration would not have been able to install their political puppet Hamid Karzai in Kabul.
Masood, rather than Hamid Karzai (a former employee of the UNOCAL oil company), could have become the head of the post-Taliban government formed in the wake of the U.S. bombings of Afghanistan.
In other words, the assassination of the leader of the Northern Alliance, was consistent with U.S. foreign policy objectives.
Since the late 1980s, the U.S. had sought to sidetrack and weaken Masood, who was perceived as a nationalist reformer, by providing support both to the Taliban and the Hezb-I-Islami group led by Gulbuddin Hektmayar against Masood.
Moreover, Masood was supported by Moscow. In the wake of his assassination, the Northern Alliance became fragmented into different factions. This also served to weakening Russian influence in Afghanistan.

“Opposition foreign affairs spokesman Abdullah Abdullah told AFP the assassination bid was plotted by the ruling Taliban militia, bin Laden and their allies in Pakistan’s intelligence agency.
‘This was a premeditated plan. They have tried it several times in the past as well but all of them have been thwarted,’ he said.

We Are Change L.A. members attended an event at Saint Bedes Church on 11/23/09 and was able to speak to Vincent Bugliosi. Mr. Bugliosi successfully prosecuted Charles Manson in 1970-71.
Mr. Bugliosi investigated the assassination of JFK as he said for “20 years” and reached the same conclusion as the Warren Commission (equivalent to the 9/11 Commission fiction novel), that Oswald had acted alone. How is it that he does not know about the Secret service stand-down? The video is provided below for your eyes to see:
Is it possible that Bugliosi does not know about the above scene in which the Secret Service stood down? Read the rest of this entry »

London, England (CNN) – There are “compelling reasons” to believe the Israeli government was responsible for forging British passports used in a plot to kill a Hamas leader in the United Arab Emirates earlier this year, British Foreign Secretary David Miliband said Tuesday.
“Such misuse of British passports is intolerable,” Miliband said, adding that the fact that Israel was an ally of the United Kingdom “only adds insult to injury.”
The passports were “copied from genuine British passports” in a “highly sophisticated operation,” indicating a government was behind it, Miliband told the House of Commons.

The Obama administration is using mercenaries with the firm formerly known as Blackwater to kidnap and assassinate high value targets in Pakistan, according to a published report.
The program, operated out of the US Joint Special Operations Command, “is so ‘compartmentalized’ that senior figures within the Obama administration and the US military chain of command may not be aware of its existence,” an unnamed source with direct knowledge of the program told The Nation reporter Jeremy Scahill.

The specter of private contractors carrying out assassinations on behalf of the US government has been raised in a New York Times article that says the CIA hired contractors from security firm Blackwater to help carry out its recently-revealed hit squad program.
The article, which appeared at the Times Wednesday night, says that in 2004, contractors from Blackwater “helped the spy agency with planning, training and surveillance” in the secret program that, according to media reports, never became fully functional.
The CIA hit squad, ostensibly meant to target al Qaeda’s leadership in the years after 9/11, became public news when CIA Director Leon Panetta informed congressional intelligence committees about it in late June. Since then, stories have appeared linking Vice President Dick Cheney to the decision to keep the hit squads secret — a decision that may violate the National Security Act, which mandates congressional oversight of the CIA.
