Everything They’re Doing Right Now Was Planned Before 9/11

  • The Afghanistan war was planned before 9/11 (see this and this)
  • The Patriot Act was planned before 9/11. Indeed, former Counter Terrorism  Czar Richard Clarke told  Stanford law professor Lawrence Lessig:

    After 9/11 the government drew up the Patriot Act within 20 days and it  was passed.

    The  Patriot Act is huge and I remember  someone asking a Justice Department  official how did they write such a  large statute so quickly, and of  course the answer was that it has been  sitting in the drawers of the  Justice Department for the last 20 years  waiting for the event where  they would pull it out.

  • Cheney dreamed of giving the White House the powers of a monarch long before 9/11

Former MI5 Director General: No Iraq – 9/11 Link in Terror War.

July 21, 2010

Eliza Manningham-Buller, Director of MI5 from 2002 to 2007.

by Brian Romanoff      July 21, 2010

Eliza Manningham-Buller, the former Director of the British Intelligence Agency known as MI5, has stated that there was no evidence linking Iraq and Saddam Hussein to the attacks of 9/11:

Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with 9/11, and I have never seen anything to make me change my mind.”

This is a nice gesture 7 years after the fact that American and British (NATO) forces led the invasion into Iraq in 2003; of which we still have over 80,000 American troops deployed to , plus the 100,000 American troops deployed in Afghanistan. 

But…

Manningham-Buller was in favor of the terror war vocally back in 2003, saying Al Qaeda was “the first truly global threat“. 

And just like George W. Bush and Tony Blair, Manninghan-Buller was confident that this war would be long, so long that she was not sure that it could be won, saying, “if this is a war that can be won, it is not going to be won soon.”  

In 2005, Manningham-Buller wondered if civil liberties were worth preserving compared to heightened security measures and law enforcement procedures employed after the 2005 London bombings. 

“But the world has changed and there needs to be a debate on whether some erosion of what we all value may be necessary to improve the chances of our citizens not being blown apart as they go about their daily lives..” 

Manninghan-Buller resigned after the London 7/7/05  bombings due to the obviously inept, and quite possibly criminal, intelligence failures. This is from a Daily Mail article in 2006: 

The head of MI5 has resigned weeks before full details of the role of her agents in a surveillance operation involving two of the July 7 bombers are due to be revealed.

Congress Passes $636 Billion in Military Spending

December 19, 2009

excerpts from: Raw Story

In a rare weekend vote, the Senate approved the 636.3-billion-dollar package, which cleared the House of Representatives 395-34 on Wednesday, by an 88-10 margin.

Obama is expected to send Congress an emergency spending measure of at least 30 billion dollars early next year to pay for his recently announced decision to send 30,000 more US troops to Afghanistan.

The bill includes 80 million dollars to acquire more unmanned “Predator” drones, a key tool in the US air war in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

A New World War for a New World Order

December 18, 2009

source: Global Research    by Gavin Marshall

This article is Part 3 in the Series, “The Origins of World War III.”

Part 1: An Imperial Strategy for a New World Order: The Origins of World War III
Part 2: Colour-Coded Revolutions and the Origins of World War III

Introduction

 In Parts 1 and 2 of this series, I have analyzed US and NATO geopolitical strategy since the fall of the Soviet Union, in expanding the American empire and preventing the rise of new powers, containing Russia and China. This Part examines the implications of this strategy in recent years; following the emergence of a New Cold War, as well as analyzing the war in Georgia, the attempts and methods of regime change in Iran, the coup in Honduras, the expansion of the Afghan-Pakistan war theatre, and spread of conflict in Central Africa. These processes of a New Cold War and major regional wars and conflicts take the world closer to a New World War. Peace can only be possible if the tools and engines of empires are dismantled.

Eastern Europe: Forefront of the New Cold War

In 2002, the Guardian reported that, “The US military build-up in the former Soviet republics of central Asia is raising fears in Moscow that Washington is exploiting the Afghan war to establish a permanent, armed foothold in the region.” Further, “The swift construction of US military bases is also likely to ring alarm bells in Beijing.”[1]

Tony Blair: Whether Or Not the Stated Reasons Are True, We Must Do It Anyway

December 15, 2009

source: Washingtons Blog

Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair told the Iraq War investigation that – whether or not Iraq had weapons of mass destruction – he would have backed the Iraq war. As the Guardian notes:

 He explained it was “the notion of him as a threat to the region” because Saddam Hussein had used chemical weapons against his own people.

“This was obviously the thing that was uppermost in my mind. The threat to the region. Also the fact of how that region was going to change and how in the end it was going to evolve as a region and whilst he was there, I thought and actually still think, it would have been very difficult to have changed it in the right way.”  Read the rest of this entry »


US Discussed Iraq Regime Change a Month after Bush Took Office, Senior British officials Say

November 25, 2009

Iraq Regime Change? How long ago was it that we put Sadam in to power in Iraq? Talks of taking him back out started long before Bush was put in to power, I’m sure.- Brian

source: Raw Story

The chairman of the British Joint Intelligence Committee in 2001 told investigators Monday that elements of the Bush Administration were pushing for regime change in Iraq in early 2001, months before the 9/11 attacks and two years before President George W. Bush formally announced the Iraq war.

Sir Peter Ricketts, now-Secretary at the Foreign Office, said that US and British officials believed at the time that measures against Iraq were failing: “sanctions, an incentive to lift sanctions if Saddam allowed the United Weapons inspectors to return, and the ‘no fly’ zones over the north and south of the country.”
