This is it....the declassified report that justifies everything I've been saying in this column for years now:
Secret Pentagon report reveals West saw ISIS as strategic asset
Anti-ISIS coalition knowingly sponsored violent extremists to ‘isolate’ Assad, rollback ‘Shia expansion’
This is not bullshit conspiracy theory. This is not armchair speculation. This is the real thing.

And it comes with the approval of one of the people I most admire in the world...
Annie Machon, a former MI5 intelligence officer who blew the whistle in the 1990s on MI6 funding of al-Qaeda to assassinate Libya’s former leader Colonel Gaddafi, similarly said of the revelations:
“This is no surprise to me. Within individual countries there are always multiple intelligence agencies with competing agendas.”
This report verifies everything we have long suspected. ISIS was an indirect creation of "the west." The Islamic State began as our proxy army -- and yes, that term is used -- intended to topple Assad.
The report, published four years before the DIA document, called for the US “to capitalise on the Shia-Sunni conflict by taking the side of the conservative Sunni regimes in a decisive fashion and working with them against all Shiite empowerment movements in the Muslim world.”
Have I not been saying this all along? The American government has taken sides in the age-old Shia-Sunni struggle -- a conflict that has nothing to do with our society, a conflict that we cannot understand and cannot control.
The report observed that the US was forming “temporary alliances” with al-Qaeda affiliated “nationalist insurgent groups” that have fought the US for four years in the form of “weapons and cash.”
What does it say about our infinitely restricted political culture that no-one -- no prominent Democrat, and no prominent Republican -- feels free to state what we've long known to be true? Why is no-one allowed to say that the American military/intelligence establishment has formed a kind of partnership with Al Qaeda, with the very force that attacked this country on 9/11?

The only person who has been in any way honest about this has been -- believe it or not -- Joe Biden!

If the Republicans won't ask Hillary Clinton about this, then liberals should do so. Must do so. We cannot let her lie to us any longer. We cannot let our present government lie to us any longer. We must refuse to pretend that these facts do not exist.

It obvious for any one who was looking at the advance of ISIS all along. Remember the th weapons dropped to them(wink wink) by mistake. But the silver lining on this , it could be a major weapon against ISIS. How much credible in the eyes of muslims if they are turn out to be US spies and tools. So in away spreading the report as much as possible is a good thing.

The site you linked to is either crashing due to traffic or has been taken down. I had to go to the google machine to fine this lengthy analysis at zerohedge:

It seems to me that we are waking up to a version of "The Great Game" that used to be so secret it was only discuesed over brandy and cigars in paneled board rooms.

*Naomi Klein shows us in her book "The Shock Doctrine"

*It's "disaster capitalism"

*It's a form of Hagelian dialectic - problem-reaction-solution

*It's "order through chaos"

And there are no "good guys" - ever.

Joseph, What was the date of that DIA document?

Joseph, I'm surprised that your enthusiasm for Ms. Machon has survived her behaviour in years past--booking halls for the controlled-demolition advocate Richard Gage in 2008, traveling around with Shayler in 2006 while Shayler advocated the nuttiest of 9/11 nuttery (missiles at the Pentagon and holograms at the WTC), accompanying the 9/11 con artist William Rodriguez while he bragged impossible brags about his exploits in the burning towers. No one who read classics at Cambridge could possibly be dumb enough to believe Rodriguez's tales. So why did she lend him her cred?

Actually, I didn't know some of that about Machon. But look at it this way: If Shayler really is the Messiah (as he now claims), then Machon must be Mary Magdalene. And if there's one thing we learn from the gnostic gospels, it's that Mary Magdalene was a really far-out "space chick" with some freaky ideas.

You can't argue with a woman like that. You just have to accept her the way she is.

Well Joseph, if you're going to take Shayler's status as the Messiah as axiomatic, I can't do much for you. Some of us who have fewer degrees of separation from 9/11 than you do justifiably resent Ms. Machon's willingness to make it a joke.

Joseph Cannon said...

C'mon, anonymous. Lighten up. Let he among you who is without sin cast the first stone.

I'm not saying that David Shayler IS the Messiah. But I have heard that Annie kept his suntan lotion in an alabaster jar.

Joseph, the 9/11 widows gave 300 questions to the 9/11 Commission and they got 27 answers. Should they lighten up?

I have never claimed to be without sin. I also did not consort with people who lied about 9/11 repeatedly for money, and people who spun ludicrous conspiracy theories that had the effect of neutralizing the widows' quest for answers.
