Larry Chin, at Global Research, 20 September 2005, writes that the British prison break and blown covert operation in Iraq exposes the war on terrorism as a lie.
This incident is as obvious and embarrassing as the 1986 downing of Oliver North’s Southern Air Transport/CIA supply plane over Nicaragua (piloted by Eugene Hasenfus), which started what is known as the Iran-Contra scandal...
What this scandal confirms, in spectacular fashion, is that the "war on terrorism" is a lie. It has been a lie, from the manufactured 9/11 to the present; one huge covert operation spearheaded by the US and the British governments, built upon endless faked intelligence and Downing Paper lies.
It further confirms that the lie itself is becoming increasingly difficult to control.
Here we have British agents caught planting explosives, setting up a bombing and the murder of civilians, and fighting between the British and the Iraqi police ("allies"). Why?
In the timely and thorough analysis 'Al-Qaeda and the Iraqi Resistance Movement'2, Chossudovsky asks:
"Has the US [and Britain] created as part of a covert intelligence operation, a bogus ‘resistance movement’ made up of its own Al Qaeda sponsored ‘terrorists’? Their suicide attacks target Iraqi civilians rather than the US military. The suicide bombings tend to encourage sectarian divisions not only within Iraq, but throughout the entire Middle East. They serve Washington's interests. They contribute to undermining the development of a broader resistance movement uniting Shia, Sunni, Kurds and Christians against the illegal occupation of the Iraqi homeland. They also tend to create, at the international level, divisions within the antiwar and peace movements."
The answer to the question, emphatically underscored by the British prison break, is yes.
A manufactured and guided "terrorism", including suicide bombings set up by Western forces, and blamed on "terrorists" (Zarqawi, etc.), and "real" blowback violence (anti-occupation resistance) - fomented by the West, for geostrategic purposes.
The real terror threat originates from Washington, and its brethren in London and Tel Aviv.
