Is the Turkish military, with the help of its friends in the USA and Israel, trying to undermine the government of Turkey?
The party in power in Turkey is the Justice and Development Party (AKP), which has Islamist roots. The Turkish military does not get on well with the AKP.
The following is from an article in Asia Times, 9 August 2003, by K Gajendra Singh
...Many reports and studies since 1990 indicate that neither Kurdish nationalism nor Islamic fundamentalism pose a threat to the republican order. Rather, vested interests among the elite are at the root of the problem, with the excuses of Islamism and Kurdish rebellion used for perpetuating these interests, while also citing the need to protect Ataturk's unitary and secular state....
When Turkey refused its ally use of bases in southeast Turkey to open a second front against Iraq, there was much public exchange of differences and admonitions between Washington and Ankara....
The AKP ... wants to consolidate and expand its vote. Its backers are upwardly mobile conservative trading and industrial classes from central Anatolian towns such as Kayseri, Konya and beyond, and they want a share in the economic cake.
This clashes with the vested interests of the supporters of the secular establishment.
The AKP has also established commissions to probe corruption among politicians, which is likely to trap many of them and weaken political parties other than the AKP, which has a clean slate and an untarnished reputation to date.
Last year, some AKP leaders publicly criticized the armed forces for its dismissal during its annual reshuffle of officers with Islamic proclivities and connections, a practice that has been in place since the establishment of the secular republic.
The armed forces enjoy autonomy in their internal matters and are very sensitive about it.
The AKP, like all political parties, has attempted to strengthen its position in the establishment and help its supporters, and will continue to do so.
Turkey and US bases
One subject on which the AKP government (if not the party and the people) and the armed forces agreed was to allow the US bases for its troops in southeast Turkey.
But a motion to this effect, even with the full support of the government, but with 90 percent of Turks opposing war on Muslim Iraq and huge crowds protesting outside parliament and elsewhere, failed to pass muster in the House.
The armed forces, with a half century of association with the US defense establishment, left the decision to the politicians at the time of the vote, but later publicly extended their full support to the government motion.
General Ozkok explained that any expression of preference by the military on the motion, which was narrowly defeated by three votes, would have been construed as interference in the working of parliament.
Many AKP supporters in the media then circulated rumors that while the AKP was in favor (of granting bases) the military did not pull its full weight.
A second vote was never tabled, for reasons that are still unclear.
The Byzantine tradition of intrigue and conspiracy tends to seep up during such critical times...
Turkey, even 80 years after Ataturk's sweeping reforms put a secular constitution in place in 1923, is still vulnerable politically...
Simply putting into place a "democratic" constitution in a Muslim country does not usher in democracy and at one swipe banish the soldiers to their barracks.
Indonesia, the world's largest Muslim country, is an example where the military continues to exert influence beyond traditional democratic processes.
Pakistan, too, cannot shake the influence of the military, despite the apparent return to democratic elections in October last year...

Israel, Oil & The "Planned Demolition" Of Lebanon
By Mike Whitney
16 August 2006
...In Michel Chossudovsky’s recent article “Triple Alliance: US, Turkey, Israel and the War on Lebanon”, the author provides a detailed account of the alliances and agreements which underscore the current war.
As Chossudovsky says, “We are not dealing with a limited conflict between the Israeli Armed Forces and Hezbollah as conveyed by the Western media. The Lebanese War Theater is part of a broader US military agenda, which encompasses a region extending from the Eastern Mediterranean into the heartland of Central Asia. The war on Lebanon must be viewed as ‘a stage’ in this broader ‘military road map’”.
Chossudovsky shows how the recently completed Baku-Tblisi-Ceyhan pipeline has strengthened the Israel-Turkey alliance and foreshadows an attempt to establish “military control over a coastal corridor extending from the Israeli-Lebanese border to the East Mediterranean border between Syria and Turkey.”
Lebanese sovereignty is one of the unfortunate casualties of this Israel-Turkey strategy.
Most of the oil from the Baku-Tblisi-Ceyhan pipeline will be transported to western markets but, what is less well-known, is that a percentage of the oil will be diverted through a “proposed” Ceyhan-Ashkelon pipeline which will connect Israel directly to rich deposits in the Caspian.
This will allow Israel to supply markets in the Far East from its port at Eilat on the Red Sea.
It is an ambitious plan that ensures that Israel will be a critical part of the global energy distribution system. (See (Michel Chossudovsky, The war on Lebanon and the Battle for Oil, July 2006)
Oil is also a major factor in the calls for “regime change” in Syria.
An article in the UK Observer “Israel Seeks Pipeline for Iraqi Oil” notes that Washington and Tel Aviv are hammering out the details for a pipeline that will run through Syria and “create and endless and easily accessible source of cheap oil for the US guaranteed by reliable allies other than Saudi Arabia.”
The pipeline “would transform economic power in the region, bringing revenue to the new US-dominated Iraq, cutting out Syria, and solving Israel’s energy crisis at a stroke.”
The Israeli Mossad is already operating in northern Iraq where the pipeline will originate and have developed good relations with the Kurds.
The only remaining obstacle is the current Syrian regime which has already entered the US/Israeli crosshairs.
The Observer quotes a CIA official who said, “It has long been a dream of a powerful section of the people now driving this administration and the war in Iraq to safeguard Israel’s energy supply as well as that of the US. The Haifa pipeline was something that existed, was resurrected as a dream, and is now a viable project—albeit with a lot of building to do.”
Former US ambassador James Atkins added, “This is a new world order now. This is what things look like particularly if we wipe out Syria. It just goes to show that it is all about oil, for the United States and its ally.”
The Middle East is being reshaped according to the ideological aspirations of Zionists and the exigencies of a viciously-competitive energy market. Behind the bombed-out ruins of Qana and the endless sorties laying Lebanon to waste, are the tireless machinations of the energy giants, the corporate media, the banking establishment and Israel.

Scottish National Party (moderate, anti-war) 33%
Labour (pro-war) 29%
Liberal Democrat (anti-war) 19%
Conservative (pro-war) 10%
If there is to be a coalition of parties in Scotland, then the Scottish Nationalists might ally with the Liberal Democrats and the Greens , giving them 57% of the vote.
Blair's Labour Party, if it formed a coalition with the Conservative Party, would have 39% of the Scottish vote.
In England, the Conservatives are ahead in the polls, but are not performing well outside of the wealthy South East. In England, it is the Liberal Democrats who have seen their support surge, due to their opposition to Blair on foreign policy.
It is the small parties that are set to do well in coming elections.
Conservative and Labour Parties: R.I.P.
The Conservative Party, a few decades ago, had 50% of the Scottish vote!

Jowell: On Monday, in a carefully-worded statement, Miss Jowell said she had never heard of the Old Monk Company nor the transactions until last weekend. "I understand the shares were never owned by my husband," she said.
At the weekend, Mr Mills said the shares were bought by a trust, which was held on behalf of a client, in his name. But he had no beneficial ownership and his wife knew nothing about it.
Sky News claimed it had seen documents which accountants said showed he was the beneficial owner of the company that bought the shares.
Fresh blow for Jowell as Tories press for renewed investigation
Court documents seen by the Guardian show that while Mr Mills was never the owner of the offshore company that bought the Old Monk shares, he did receive the profits from its investments, including the one made in the pub chain, both directly and indirectly. The documents also include a claim by the company's owner that Mr Mills had assured him that all the investments were "his personal assets". Testimony links pub chain profit to Mills

Jowell is to face questions over how she secured crucial Italian support for the 2012 London Games. According to the Independent newspaper, sources from various cities in the 2012 bid said that powerful International Olympic Committee (IOC) member Mario Pescante, who as Italian Sports Minister was answerable to Berlusconi, became a surprise convert to London after initially backing it’s main rival Paris. The source said, “we were astounded and perplexed by his support for London. There was a belief that Berlusconi would virtually order Mr. Pescante to back London”.

From The Guardian, 19 August 2006:
Tablighi Jamaat, whose activities are being monitored by the security services, holds tightly guarded meetings on an industrial estate close to the area where some of the suspects in last week's terror raids were arrested.
This week it emerged that at least seven of the 23 suspects under arrest on suspicion of involvement in the plot to blow up transatlantic airliners may have participated in Tablighi events.
The organisation - influenced by a branch of Saudi Arabian Islam known as Wahhabism - has already been linked to two of the July 7 suicide bombers who attended a Tablighi mosque at the organisation's headquarters in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire. The jailed shoe bomber Richard Reid is also known to have attended Tablighi meetings.
B Raman, Additional Secretary (retd), Cabinet Secretariat, Govt. of India, wrote the following:

Washington's Pakistani Allies: Killers and Drug Dealers, by Rahul Bedi in New Delhi
Reprinted from Sydney Morning Herald, September 27, 2001
... Opium cultivation and heroin production in Pakistan's northern tribal belt and adjoining Afghanistan were a vital offshoot of the ISI-CIA co-operation.
Ralph Olson Sr., on 2 Jan 2005, wrote about:
"Charlie Wilson's War" by George Crile, Grove Press,NY, 2003.
... the CIA, since the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, cultivated the ISI as their most important client and agent...
I just read "Charlie Wilson's War" by George Crile, Grove Press, NY, 2003.
The Mossad used Charlie Wilson to penetrate the CIA's Afghan campaign, and thereby the ISI and the Pakistani government at all levels...
CIA officer Milton Bearden says that in this period Dick Cheney played a key role in getting Wilson appointed to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, which may suggest that Cheney was an important player in the pro-Israeli network even at this point ("The Main Enemy", Milton Bearden, Ballantine Books, NY, 2003. pg. 277).
The Israelis may have gained Wilson's allegiance in part by pandering to his appetites. Charlie Wilson was very close with at least three very beautiful Israeli women, and at least two of these were put in his path by the Israeli government. One was "Ziva, a beautiful Israeli ballerina" (Crile, pg. 2).
Then there was "a raven-haired captain in the Israeli Defense Forces.She was the congressman's official guide to the war zone, and Wilson's infatuation began on that first trip into the desert to see the burning Russian tanks" (Crile, pg. 32).
Then he was introduced to Gila Almagor, Israel's leading movie star (Crile,pg. 32). "By the time he got back to Washington, Wilson hadbecome, in his own words, 'an Israeli commando' in the U.S.Congress" (Crile, pg. 32)...
As soon as he had gained access to the key Congressional positions, the "Israeli commando" became obsessed with funding and controling the CIA's Afhan jihad against the Soviets. In the words of Milton Bearden, the CIA Field Officer in Afghanistan at the time, "More than any other member of either house, Charlie fashioned Congress into the engine that drove the CIA's program for Afghanistan." (Bearden, pg. 277).
Given what George Crile has revealed about Charlie Wilson's career,we can substitute "the Mossad" for "Charlie" in the previous statement...
Traveling from Israel to Pakistan, Wilson was successful in selling president Zia on acquiring massive amounts ofIsraeli technology and weaponry (Crile, 140 - 153)...
So in summary, the Israelis were very major players in the Afghan jihad, providing crucial technology and weaponry. They accomplished this not by interfacing with the CIA, which opposed their involvement, but by interfacing their own intelligence agencies directly with the U.S. Congress, and using Congressional delegations to establish their own direct connections to the government and intelligence services of Pakistan. The Israeli/Pakistan connnection was crucial to the success of the Afghan campaign against the Soviets, and provided Israeli intelligence with a very secure footing inside Pakistan's intelligence agency, the ISI.

The book is 'Every Spy a Prince' by Dan Raviv and Yossi Melman (Houghton Mifflin.)
The excellent review is by Russell Warren Howe
From the start, the authors show, Israel's secret services ran rogue operations, stealing money from the Swiss accounts of Hitler's victims, bombing a synagogue in Baghdad during prayers in 1951 to scare Jewish Iraqis into moving into tent villages in Israel, and bombing British and American offices in Cairo in 1954 (the "Lavon affair") to discredit the Nasser regime.
Using American funds provided for other purposes, the Mossad bribed its way across Africa and Latin America.
The authors assert that the late dictator of Romania, Nicolae Ceaucescu—who edged Sadat toward Jerusalem and Camp David—received about $30 million from the agency.
Israel's spies exploited Kurdish and Christian minorities in the Arab world.
Elsewhere, they threw in their lot with established power, however autocratic: Iran (where they trained the SAVAK secret police in interrogation methods), Zaire, Chad and other African countries, Singapore, Sri Lanka (where they helped the Sinhalese go after Tamils), South Korea, South Africa (where Israel aided the birth of nuclear weapons), and Argentina (supplying arms during the Falklands War).
They helped Morocco capture and kill an opposition leader, Mehdi Ben Barka, in Paris.
In Beirut, they murdered Palestinians and blew up MEA Caravelles at the airport.
During the 1967 war, they protected the disinformation communications which brought Jordan into the conflict by directing the attack on the US SPY ship Liberty, an action in which 34 Americans were killed and 171 wounded.
Misinformation has always been a Mossad trademark. The most prominent victim was the United States, thanks to an agreement negotiated by CIA Assistant Director James Jesus Angleton that Israel and America would not spy on each other.
The Mossad always ignored the pact in America, but until the agreement was nullified by Admiral Stansfield Turner a generation later, when he was Jimmy Carter's CIA director, the CIA apparently relied on Mossad data.
After Angleton died, a memorial to him was erected in Jerusalem.
Another victim was Britain.
As the authors note, on June 17, 1988, former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, who had been a decided fan of Israel's, ordered all Mossad "diplomats" out of Britain. She had been angered by a succession of capers:
1. a pseudo-Syrian "attempted bombing" of an El Al plane at Heathrow (which led to a break in relations with Damascus before the deceit was discovered),
2. the Falklands arms sale,
3. and the removal of the anti-nuclear Israeli pacifist Mordechai Vanunu from London by a Mossad swallow from Florida...
Former Mossad spies:
Lt. Col. Yair Klein, a German Israeli, taught the bodyguards of Colombian drug barons how to kill Washington's DEA agents.
Palestinian-born Amiram Nir teamed up with Oliver North and took a naive Reagan administration into Iranscam...
(Reportedly it was Mossad that suggested that the CIA should smuggle heroin from Southern Lebanon into the USA using Pan Am flights. One Pan Am flight was blown up over Lockerbie.)

"The former president and his wife, Rosalyn, followed up the meeting with a breakfast with Bakr bin Laden in September 2000 and secured the first $200,000 towards the more than $1 million that has gone to the Carter Center." Bin Laden family gave $1 million to Carter
Salem bin Laden (born 1946) attended Millfield, the English boarding school.
He took over the family empire in 1967; he married an English art student, Caroline Carey, whose half brother Ambrose Douglas is the son of the Marquess of Queensberry in Scotland.
According to French intelligence, during the 1980's, Salem helped the Reagan Administration when it secretly arranged for an estimated thirty-four million dollars to be funnelled through Saudi Arabia to the Contras, in Nicaragua.
On the morning of September 11, 2001, George W. Bush's father, George H. W. Bush, was meeting with Osama bin Laden's brother, Shafig bin Laden, in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Washington, on Carlyle Group business.
The Carlyle Group is a company closely associated with officials of the Bush and Reagan administrations, and has considerable ties to Saudi oil money, including ties to the bin Laden family.
Reportedly, in 1979, Osama bin Laden's tutor, Prince Turki al Fayçal al Saud (director of Saudi Arabia secret services from 1977 to August 2001), asked Osama to direct and financially manage the CIA secret operations in Afghanistan. The Hidden Financial Ties between the Bush and the Bin Laden ...
From the Daily Telegraph, 20 July 2004:
Telegraph Entertainment The acceptable face of the bin Ladens
"...The bin Ladens have dealings with Citigroup, General Electric, Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs and the Fremont Group, as well as Microsoft and Boeing.
"The family is reported to have given $2 million to Harvard and $300,000 to Tufts University, as well as owning massive amounts of real estate in Florida and Massachusetts.
"Far from denying these investments, Yeslam is quietly proud of them as evidence of the family's friendly involvement with the US."
According to Le Figaro newspaper, 11 October 2001, a CIA agent met Osama bin Laden in July 2001, while Osama was getting treatment for kidney problems at an American hospital in Dubai. Guardian Unlimited Special reports CIA agent alleged to have ...
Bin Laden checked into the American Hospital Dubai, a 100-bed, acute-care general hospital, July 4 and stayed until July 14.
He arrived from Quetta, Pakistan, accompanied by his personal doctor and a close aide - possibly Ayman el Zawahiri, a leader of Egypt's Islamic Jihad, now bin Laden's right hand man, the newspaper said.
Le Figaro cited a "professional partner" linked to the hospital's management as its source.
Besides a stream of local dignitaries and family members, bin Laden's visitors included a local CIA agent, the newspaper reported. The agent was widely recognized locally, Le Figaro said, and later told several friends of the meeting.

The role of Pakistan Military Intelligence in terror around the world, from Bali to Bombay to London to New York.
And the CIA and MI6 appear to have close links to the Pakistan Intelligence agency.
Pakistan Intelligence = CIA = Terrorists?
The following is an extract from:
The Foiled UK Terror Plot and the "Pakistani Connection"
By Michel Chossudovsky, Professor of Economics at the University of Ottawa
14 August 2006
While actively collaborating with the British police investigation, Pakistan's Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) is known to have supported and financed a number of "Islamic terror groups" including Al Qaeda.
In fact the terrorist training camps in Pakistan and Afghanistan were set up in the early 1980s with the support of the ISI and the CIA.
And the leaders of these various Islamic organizations were also indoctrinated in the ISI sponsored madrassas.
The ISI was instrumental in the creation of the militant Jammu and Kashmir Hizbul Mujahideen (JKHM) in the late 1980s.
Confirmed by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), it has also supported and provided financial assistance (during the entire post-Cold War era), to the 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 terror attack on the Indian parliament in October 2001.
According to the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR):
[T]hrough its Interservices Intelligence agency (ISI), Pakistan has provided funding, arms, training facilities, and aid in crossing borders to Lashkar and Jaish.
This assistance-an attempt to replicate in Kashmir the international Islamist brigade's "holy war" against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan-helped introduce radical Islam into the long-standing conflict over the fate of Kashmir…
See Council on Foreign Relations, "Terrorism: Questions and Answers, Harakat ul-Mujahideen, Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Muhammad" , Washington 2002, )
More recently, an Associated Press report suggested that Jaish-e-Mohammed was allegedly behind the Mumbai July 2006 train bombing that killed 190 people: "
[A] US official who spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity pointed to another group, Jaish-e-Mohammed, or Army of Mohammed, which is also affiliated with al-Qaeda, according to the Bush administration. Targeting trains at rush hour traffic is a tactic Jaish-e-Mohammed favors, the official said" (Associated Press Report quoted by Larry Chin, July 2006).
The ISI has also provided support to the Bangladeshi based Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami, the South East Asian Jemaah Islamiah (JI), the two main Chechen rebel factions, and other terrorist organizations.
The 2002 Bali attack in the Kuta seaside resort was allegedly perpetrated by Jemaah Islamiah, which had previously been supported by Pakistani Military Intelligence.
The Role of Pakistan's Military Intelligence in 9/11
On the 9th of September 2001, two days before 9/11, the charismatic leader of Afghanistan's Northern Alliance Commander Ahmad Shah Masood was assassinated in a suicide attack.
The Northern Alliance had informed the Bush Administration that Pakistani intelligence (ISI) was allegedly implicated in the assassination. (The Northern Alliance's statement was released on 14 September 2001, quoted in a Reuters report on 15 September 2001)
Moreover, according to several reports, Pakistan's ISI allegedly also played a role in supporting the presumed 9/11 terrorists.
Of particular significance is an FBI report leaked to ABC News in late September 2001:
"As to September 11th, federal authorities have told ABC News they have now tracked more than $100,000 from banks in Pakistan, to two banks in Florida, to accounts held by suspected hijack ring leader, Mohammed Atta. ... It's all part of what has been a successful FBI effort so far to close in on the hijacker's high commander, the money men, the planners and the mastermind." (Statement of Brian Ross reporting on information conveyed to him by the FBI, ABC News, This Week, September 30, 2001,. emphasis added)
The FBI report was corroborated by an official Indian intelligence document (apparently been dispatched to Washington), which was reported by Agence France Presse (AFP) and The Times of India.
These reports suggested that financial assistance to the 911 ringleader had been transferred on the orders of the Head of Pakistan's ISI:
"[The money was] wired to WTC hijacker Mohammed Atta from Pakistan, by Ahmad Umar Sheikh, at the instance of [the Head of Pakistan's Military Intelligence (ISI)] General Mahmoud [Ahmad]." See Times of India, Delhi, 9 October 2001, AFP, 10 October 2001,
Further details, see Michel Chossudovsky, America's "War on Terrorism", Global Research, 2005) .
Some of the contradictions underlying the recent role of the ISI, were addressed in a 2005 debate at the Nixon Center (7 July 2005), which was broadcast on C-Span:
Nikolas Guosdev: "You can see another one of these mainstream parties, Jammat-e- Ulama-e-Isam, which is ... linked to the main Kashmiri radical groups -- Lashkar-e- Jhangvi, Harakat-ul-Mujahedin -- which serves as a logistical -- which helps al Qaeda and the Taliban in the the tribal areas in Pakistan. Jaish-e-Muhammad, you can see all of that fits in.
The fingerprints of the ISI, by the way, are all over this. And the question, of course, is whether it is an institutional policy or if it is through personal connections and personal relationships.
Alexis Debat: "I agree with you that fingerprints can mean many things, and there is certainly several ways that the ISI has been in contact with -- officially or unofficially -- with these groups. What I was referring to is that these groups have been, and still are, at least for the majority of them, instrumentalized by the ISI in Baluchistan and in Kashmir, in Afghanistan, and there's considerable evidence that a lot of the trainers in Afghanistan in the 1990s were Pakistani -- retired Pakistani military officers, retired ISI." (Nixon Center Discussion on Pakistan and Terrorism with Alexis Debat, Historian and Terrorism analyst Nikolas Guosdev, Editor of the National Interest Journal, emphasis added)
The Pakistan ISI - Scotland Yard Connection
Pakistan's ISI has a shady record of supporting terrorist organizations on the one hand while helping British police and intelligence officials on the on the other hand.
Was the ISI providing institutional support to the terror network or was this support carried out through complex personal links by so-called "rogue elements" within the ISI?
Has the ISI, under President Pervez Musharraf been duly reformed (as conveyed by the mainstream media), to undertake its new role of combating rather than supporting " Islamic terrorism"?
The evidence suggests that the ISI remains the core institutional architect (in liaison with the CIA) of the "Islamic terror network", from the Soviet-Afghan war to the present.
Recent Indian press reports (August 2, 2006) suggest that the ISI is still running the terrorist training camps:
"[A]s many as 52 [ISI] terrorist training camps are still functioning in Pakistan and Pakistan occupied Kashmir." (Statesman News Service, Delhi, 2 August 2006)
Britain's Sunday Times (August 13, 2006) corroborates these damning reports, without, however, pointing fingers at the Home Office and Scotland Yard:
It was the ISI that turned the Taliban from a bunch of religious students into a movement that took over Afghanistan. According to Hamid Karzai, president of Afghanistan, ISI continues to provide a safe haven, training them to fight British soldiers in Helmand....
Pakistan's problem is that extremist organizations and training camps, such as those linked to the London bombers, were either created by, or supported and used by, ISI." (emphasis added)
The Sunday Times underscores yet another apparent "inconsistency" by revealing that the ISI is providing support to groups which are actually fighting British troops in Afghanistan.
What are the implications? What does this imply in relation to London Met's police investigation?
The London Police Anti-Terrorist Branch (SO13) headed by Peter Clarke together with MI6, the Secret Intelligence Service, and MI5, the Security Service (which operates under the authority of Home Secretary John Reid), are working hand in glove with a Pakistani based intelligence agency which has supported known terrorist organizations, while also collaborating with its Western counterparts "in going after the terrorists".
The facts speak for themselves. The least we might ask at the outset of the British police investigation is:
How reliable is the information transmitted from Pakistan's ISI to its British police and intelligence counterparts? The sweeping Home Office statements that the plot would have resulted in "an unimaginable loss of human life", were in large part based on information out of Rawalpindi, Pakistan, courtesy of Scotland Yard's Pakistani partner: The Inter Services Intelligence (ISI).
Is the credibility of Scotland Yard impaired by its working relationship with an organization which, for the last 25 years, has promoted international terrorism?
What would be the perceptions of the British and American public were they to learn that the London Metropolitan police was conducting its investigation with the assistance of an organization known to have close links to Osama bin Laden's Al Qaeda?
Can an independent police investigation be conducted with the active participation of British and US intelligence, knowing that both MI6 and the CIA have links (either directly or via the ISI) to "Islamic terrorist organizations".
"The War on Terrorism"
According to Pakistani press reports (Dawn, August 12, 2006) two Pakistani Islamic militant groups Lashkar-e-Taiba and the Sunni group Lashkar-e-Jhangvi were involved in the UK terror plot. (August 2006)
Two other UK-based outfits Al Mahajroon and Hizbul Tehrir, are allegedly also involved.
Matiur Rehman "a senior figure" in Lashkar-e-Jhangvi is considered to be "the possible mastermind behind the plot".
Rehman, who is still "at large" is identified according to The Independent as "Al-Qaeda's planning director".
One of the main suspects Rachid Rauf has been arrested by the ISI.
The Pakistani authorities have put Hafiz Mohammed Saeed, the founder of Laskhar-e-Taiba under house arrest.
Ironically, Lashkar e Taiba, which now operates clandestinely, is one of the main Kashmir rebel groups which had been supported and financed by the ISI, yet, at the same time, it is the ISI which has been entrusted in investigating Lashkar's role in the UK terror plot.
Moreover, according to former CIA intelligence analyst Jim Loftus in relation to last year's 7/7 London bomb attack, Al Mahjajoon, identified as a British based organization in the foiled August terror attack, has been supported by MI6. (See Michel Chossudovsky, London 7/7 Terror Suspect Linked to British Intelligence? 1 August 2005)
While channeling covert support to Mahjajoon [Muhajiroun], MI6 (The Secret Intelligence Service) also collaborates with Scotland Yard's Anti-Terrorism Branch, in liaison with US Homeland Security headed by Michael Chertoff and the CIA.
This contradictory relationship between intelligence agencies and terror groups should come as no surprise.
Amply documented, Western intelligence agencies including the CIA and MI6, in liaison with the ISI, are known to have supported the "Islamic terror network" including Al Qaeda. (For further details see Michel Chossudovsky, America's "War on Terrorism", Global Research, 2005)
The "War on Terrorism" is a fabrication.
Al Qaeda, the "outside enemy" of the West is a creation of the US intelligence apparatus.
In intelligence parlance, Al Qaeda is an "intelligence asset", an "instrument" of the intelligence agencies.
The intelligence agencies oversee their "intelligence assets", which have a certain degree of independence and autonomy in relation to their sponsors.
While they promote the terror network through covert operations, intelligence agencies also engage in the legitimate practice of "counter-terrorism".
The latter is invariably a smokescreen, which essentially consists in "going after" the organizations created and/or indirectly supported by the intelligence apparatus.
The system of "color coded" terror alerts, the fear campaign, the terror warnings, the anti-terrorist drills and exercises, in the name of "national security" have become part of a heavily ritualized process which supports a global military agenda.
All of these various initiatives, including the campaign against Islam, are undertaken to confuse public opinion --through media disinformation-- into believing that the "outside enemy" is real and that the "war on terrorism" waged in the Middle East, which has resulted in countless civilian deaths, constitutes a justified "national security" objective.
Moreover, to sustain the "war on terrorism", US and British intelligence must continue to support (through covert operations) the "Islamic terror network".
Without an "outside enemy" there is no "war on terrorism", no "just cause" for waging a profit driven Middle East war of conquest, which responds to carefully defined strategic and economic objectives.
Without the " war on terrorism", the war criminals in high office and their powerful corporate sponsors do not have a leg to stand on.
Their legitimacy collapses like a deck of card.

'The Sacred Chain - A History of the Jews' by Norman Cantor - Harper Collins, 1995
"It was the Jews, by and large," says Norman Cantor, "not the Italians, who created what was later called the Mafia.
"In the 1920s the Italians began to replace the Jews in the New York organized crime industry, but as late as 1940 if you wanted a spectacular hit you were looking for a representative of the Lepke Buchalter Gang, also known as Murder Inc.
"Jews were also prominent in the gambling trade and developed Las Vegas in the 1940s. It was a Jewish gambler who fixed the 1919 baseball World Series - what became known as the Black Sox scandal."
Marvin Kitman has written: "The Jews were the first ones to realize the link between organized crime an organized politics. They led the way in corrupting the police and city hall."
Reportedly, the Seagram's alcohol fortune (the Canadian Bronfman family) 'grew to power by getting their alcohol into criminal hands who smuggled it into the United States. Bronfman, who bristled when anyone called him a bootlegger, had a distribution deal for his booze with Jewish mobster Meyer Lansky.'
David Ben-Gurion was jailed in Warsaw, Poland. "That was the first time," he said, "that I ever came into contact with the dregs of society. I was shaken to the core at the language and behavior. I never had the slightest notion that such people ever existed ... The thing that shook me most was that these criminals were Jews."
In 1999, the (London) Daily Mail pointed out that the gangster Kray twins, Ronnie and Reggie, were "of Jewish... stock."
According to the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, September 15, 1999, "Between 50 and 80 percent of the Russian economy is said to be in Jewish hands, with the influence of the five Jews among the eight individuals commonly referred to as 'oligarchs' particularly conspicuous."
Mark Rich Helped KGB Create Hidden Government,
According to Newsmax, Saturday, March 31, 2001: "Mark Rich, the most-wanted fugitive pardoned by former President Clinton, was a key figure in the Communist Party and the KGB's creation of an underground government that survived the break-up of the Soviet Union and still rules Russia today behind the scenes."
Murdoch uncovered Prince Charles-Gordon Brown plot to oust Blair. Phony terror plan cooked up to derail coup plans.
Aug. 11, 2006 - According to knowledgeable sources in the UK and other countries, the Tony Blair government, under siege by a Labour Party revolt, cleverly cooked up a new "terror" scare to avert the public's eyes away from Blair's increasing political woes.
British law enforcement, neo-con and intelligence operatives in the United States, Israel, and Britain, and Rupert Murdoch's global media empire cooked up the terrorist plot, liberally borrowing from the failed 1995 "Oplan Bojinka" plot by Pakistan- and Philippines-based terrorist Ramzi Ahmad Yousef to crash 11 trans-Pacific airliners bound from Asia to the United States.
In the latest plot, it is reported that liquid bombs were to be detonated on 10 trans-Atlantic planes outbound from Britain to the United States.
The London terror plan was "known" last Sunday by British and American authorities, according to the Indian press.
American Airlines flight 109 from London Heathrow to Boston boarded a family of five. However, after the plane left Heathrow authorities determined that the father appeared on a British suspect list drawn up after the 7/7 London transit attacks. At first, the pilot was instructed to fly all the way to Boston where U.S. authorities could claim credit for apprehending the suspect.
However, the pilot, fearing for the safety of his passengers and crew, refused and quickly returned to Heathrow without informing the passengers. Once on the ground, it was discovered that the male had in his carry-on baggage the type of combination liquid explosive and electronic device now being hyped by the British and American media.
British sources report that the reason for the delay in informing the airlines and traveling public about the liquid bomb on the American flight was to maximize the beneficial political impact for Blair and George W. Bush, both plummeting in the polls from the situations in Iraq and Lebanon.
Earlier this week, two employees of Murdoch's London tabloid, News of the World, were charged with hacking into the voice and text cell phone messages of three members of the staff of Clarence House, the residence of Princes Charles, William, and Harry.
One of those charged with the wiretapping was Clive Goodman, the Royals editor of the News of the World. The same paper earlier tried to politically damage two anti-Iraq war British politicians -- Scottish Socialist Tommy Sheridan and Respect Party MP George Galloway. The paper charges that Sheridan was unfaithful to his wife by going to swinger's clubs. He won a quarter million dollar lawsuit against the paper. Galloway was confronted by Mazher Mahmood, an individual who uses the moniker "Fake Sheik," who posed as a wealthy Arab businessman and tried unsuccessfully to get Galloway to accept cash and make anti-Semitic remarks. In fact, Mahmood was and continues to be a reporter for News of the World, his continued employment approved by Murdoch. Goodman has merely been suspended by Murdoch but he has not been fired.
However, what prompted Murdoch and Blair to hype a new global "terror" threat was what Murdoch learned from eavesdropping on the phone calls of Prince Charles' staff at the future king's office, home, and limousine.
The eavesdropping revealed that Charles was working with Chancellor of the Exchequer Gordon Brown, who is to the left of Blair, to conduct the same type of political maneuver that John Major used to oust Margaret Thatcher from office.
London's left-wing Mayor, Ken Livingston, was also in on the Charles-Brown plan and it was expected that in return for his support, Livingston would get a senior position in a Brown cabinet -- a development that sent shock waves through the neo-con circles in London, Washington, and Jerusalem, including British Home Secretary John Reid and Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff.
The Charles-Brown plan was briefed by Blair to Bush during the former's recent visit to Washington. However, because the phony terror plot was known to both leaders -- they decided to be away on vacation when the terror plot was "uncovered." Bush is vacationing at his Crawford, Texas "ranch," while Blair is on vacation in Barbados, staying at Sir Cliff Richard's luxurious villa.
After Blair met with Bush in Washington, he flew to California where on July 30 he attended Murdoch's News Corporation private corporate executive conference at the posh Inn at Spanish Bay golf resort in Pebble Beach. Blair met with Murdoch, Israeli former Prime Minister Shimon Peres, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Newt Gingrich, and various Fox, Star, and Sky News executives.
Blair told Bush that a Brown government would move to withdraw British troops from Iraq, break the "special relationship" with the Bush White House, and move closer to the European Union and the United Nations.
The Israeli attack on Lebanon created a rift within Blair's Cabinet with some former Blair loyalists signaling their support for the political coup against Blair. As a result, a suspect passenger was permitted to board an American aircraft at Heathrow with a liquid bomb to lay the groundwork for the media and travel hysteria five days later.
Final touches on fake terror plot were agreed to by Blair and Murdoch at July 30 News Corp/Fox VIP meeting at the Inn at Spanish Bay in Pebble Beach, California.
The wiretapping of Charles' messages also indicated that he has weighed in with various European royal families to discourage them from inviting Bush on state visits to their nations. This, reportedly upset the Bush and Blair regimes, who were working together to improve Bush's image in Europe. The White House's displeasure with the monarchies in Spain, Belgium, Sweden, Luxembourg, and Norway are a direct result of the Murdoch eavesdropping on Charles' staff.
Not surprisingly, after Galloway tore into a Sky News reporter on a recent televised interview, The Sun, a Murdoch paper, is now reporting that one of the 24 British aircraft liquid bomber suspects now under arrest, Waheed Zaman, met with Galloway "many times." The paper quotes the sister of the suspect. A Galloway spokesman denies that Galloway knows the suspect. What is suspect is the Murdoch media empire that makes up news and commits illegal acts to provide cover for the false flag operations being conducted by Britain, the U.S., and Israel.
Pakistan's Inter Service Intelligence (ISI) agency has helped provide the cover story for the alleged liquid bombers. Working with British and U.S. intelligence, the ISI says it broke up the plot after arresting terrorist suspects in Lahore and Karachi. However, the ISI claims that the men were affiliated with the Kashmiri terrorist group Lashkar-e-Toiba, a group that is run and funded by the ISI itself.
The disclosure of the Charles-Brown plot has already created a backlash from the neo-cons. The Murdoch media is already floating the rumor that Home Secretary Reid is now Blair's chosen successor, while there will be an effort to scandalize Charles in an effort to convince the British public that it would be best to skip over him and have Prince William assume the throne upon Queen Elizabeth's death or abdication.
British commentators are noting that it is Reid, a noted neo-con, who is chairing national security "Cobra" meetings in Blair's absence. Blair bypassed Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott and many political observers believe that Prescott was passed over because of evidence that he was involved in supporting the Charles-Brown coup. Prescott chaired Cobra meetings in the wake of the July 7, 2005 (7/7) London transit bombings.
Meanwhile, Republican governors Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mitt Romney used the occasion to boost their sagging popularity by placing their states' National Guardsmen at major airports in their states.
