Mohammed Hamid and MI6

Photo of Hamid

Mohammed Hamid was born in in Tanzania and moved to the UK with his family aged five.

He became involved with various criminals and began drinking and smoking cannabis.

He became 'a thief, robber, burglar and crack cocaine addict'. (Profiles: The terror gang members)

In 2001 he was quizzed by police in connection with a kidnap investigation.

Was he, at this point, recruited by MI6?

In the UK, on 26 February 2008, Mohammed Hamid, the 'terrorist mastermind' who called himself 'Osama bin London' and 'trained the 21 July bomb plotters' was convicted of soliciting murder. 'Bin London' urged terror camp trainees to outdo 7/7

Mohammed Hamid, 50, worked with Abu Hamza's right-hand man, Atilla Ahmet, 43, described as 'the number one al Qaeda operator in Europe'.

Abu Hamza is suspected by some of having links to MI6.

"There is a wealth of evidence to suggest that Britain’s security services sheltered Hamza for many years and even worked with him." - (Britain: Why did it take so long to bring Abu Hamza to trial?)

Hamid trained the 21 July bomb gang at 'remote camps' across Britain.

A BBC documentary crew filmed one terror camp for the show Don't Panic I'm Islamic.

The BBC is suspected by some of having links to MI6.

Hamid reportedly trained the failed 21 July London bomb plotters Muktar Said Ibrahim, Ramzi Mohammed, Hussain Osman, Yassin Omar and Adel Yahya at a farm in Great Langdale, Cumbria, in 2004.

Hamid reportedly organised a paint-balling trip attended by Mohammed and Osman in July 2005 near Tonbridge, Kent, just two weeks before the failed London bomb attacks.

Child abuse; Jersey; Kincora; North Wales; Dunblane; Islington



Edward Paisnel
, the Beast of Jersey, was the son of wealthy Jersey landowners.

During the period 1958 - 1971, Paisnel abducted and abused a number of children.

Paisnel was a fan of the 15th-century Breton, Gilles de Rais, who murdered around 200 children.

The authorities discovered that Paisnel had a secret satanic chamber. (Sir Peter Crill obituary - Times Online)

Paisnel claimed he was a member of a satanic group. File: /files/Religion/Wicca/witchcraftDeviltry.txt

No other members of the 'black magic group' were ever arrested.

In 1971, Paisnel was convicted of thirteen sex offences against young children, ( The Human Beast ) and sent to jail.

Paisnel, the Beast of Jersey, visited Jersey's Haut de la Garenne orphanage dressed as Father Christmas during his reign of terror in the 1960s (Notorious paedophile dubbed the 'Beast of Jersey' linked to ...)


1. February 24, 2008: It was reported that Jersey Police had found a child's remains at a former children's home in Jersey. Detectives said they expected to discover more bodies at the former Haut de la Garenne home in St Martin.

"The three-month investigation into child abuse at several government institutions on the island took a harrowing turn with the discovery yesterday morning of the partial remains, believed to date from the 1980s." - Body found amid fears of child abuse ring on Jersey

"Jersey’s Health Minister was sacked after he blew the whistle on a harsh punishment regime in a home where children as young as 11 were kept in solitary confinement.

"Stuart Syvret, the island’s longest-serving and most popular senator, had accused ministers, civil servants and social workers of failing to protect children but he was forced out this week after losing a vote of confidence in Jersey’s parliament, the States.

"He claimed to have been defeated by the “one-party oligarchy” of the Jersey establishment." - Minister Sacked After Exposing Child Abuse

"One man who was in the home for several years in the 1960s told how his 14-year-old best friend, Michael Collins, ran away from the home and was found hanged from a tree."

"Remains discovered five years ago were dismissed as animal bones and disposed of, despite being found in close proximity to children’s shoes." - paedophile was known to visit children’s home

"Jersey Police, following up a series of convictions for sexual offences involving officers from the island's Sea Cadet Corps, say they began to notice links between victims in those cases, and a number of island institutions, including Haut de la Garenne. (BBC NEWS World Europe Jersey Investigating Jersey's 'abuse ...)

"It’s alleged child abuse has been concealed in the area for many years and the trail could lead right to the top of Jersey’s citizens." - Jersey's Chief Minister Deny Claims Children Were Murdered at ...

The police officer heading the Jersey child abuse inquiry is Lenny Harper, who comes from Northern Ireland.

Harper is a former RUC (Northern Ireland Police) officer. - Endemic abuse at home: ex-RUC officer

The police and MI5 are alleged to have links to child abuse in Northern Ireland.

"For years, MI5 had been aware of a homosexual vice ring operating within the Kincora Boys Home in East Belfast, which was run by William McGrath, a notorious homosexual....

"McGrath... was employed by MI5 since the mid 1960s.

"Amongst various other Loyalist members of the homosexual ring were John McKeague, who ran the Loyalist paramilitary organisation, the Red Hand Commandos, which was involved in many sectarian killings...

"So, MI5 allowed the ill-treatment and sexual abuse of residents at the Kincora Boys Home to continue..."

3. "The role of MI5 sponsored boys homes/abuse circles in Kincora, Northern Ireland, Dunblane, Scotland and probably Cardiff mirrors on a smaller scale the systematic role that State- sponsored child abuse has played in the centres of power in the US and Brussels."- portland imc - 2007.05.11 - Scotland’s May 2007 Election Fiasco

4. "Scallywag Magazine alleged that MI5 used to take foreign diplomats to the North Wales homes, give them boys to 'play' with, secretly filmed them as they buggered, abused and tortured boys then kept the tapes as evidence.

Over a dozen victims who complained of abuse by the paedophile ring 'have met suspicious deaths'." - North Wales paedophile ring, top people, the police and the security services

Now defunct magazine Scallywag covered events at Bryn Alyn in detail

October 1997 (PUBLIC FIGURES NAMED IN PAEDOPHILE RING By Nick Davies 1997) :

"Policemen, social workers and prominent public figures have been accused of belonging to a paedophile ring which indulged in a relentless campaign of physical and sexual abuse in children's homes in North Wales.

"The names of the alleged members of the ring have been given by witnesses in public sessions of the North Wales Child Abuse Tribunal, but they have been suppressed by the tribunal's chairman, Sir Ronald Waterhouse QC, who has threatened the media with High Court proceedings if they print them.

"The Guardian today publishes for the first time detailed evidence about the alleged ring, which is said to have been based in Wrexham, and to have infiltrated local children's homes over a 20 year period.

"Witnesses claim that members of the ring used their connections with police and social services to conceal their activities. All of the accused have denied the allegations.

"Those named to the tribunal include:

"A man who bears the same surname as a prominent Conservative supporter. Two witnesses have told the tribunal of a rich and powerful man who belonged to the alleged ring.

"The son of an influential peer who admitted to police that he had been having sex with an under-age boy from one of the homes. Despite his admission, he was never prosecuted.

"A powerful public official who has previously been cleared of abuse. Six witnesses have given separate accounts to the tribunal of his alleged rape of young boys. Another has reported him attending parties in Wrexham which were supplied with boys from a children's home.

"Two social workers and two police officers, one of whom was accused of abuse on four separate occasions and exonerated each time, another of whom has since been jailed in another part of the country for gross indecency with a child.

"More than a dozen other local men, including an executive with a local authority, a senior probation officer and a director of a major company."

5. "I believe that Hamilton was a major provider of pornographic photographs and videos to a ring of men prominent in Central Scotland, including police officers who protected him from numerous allegations of physical abuse at boys' camps and clubs he ran." - aangirfan: Dunblane

6. Margaret Hodge (née Margaret Oppenheimer) was linked to the alleged cover up of a pedophile scandal. In 2003, Hodge was appointmented as Minister for Children by Tony Blair.

October 6 1992: The Evening Standard began a series of reports alleging that dozens of children at two Islington council homes were abused.

Hodge accused the Standard of "gutter journalism" and rejected its dossier on paedophile activity in the homes.

October 23 1992Margaret Hodge stepped down as council leader.

May 23 1995: An independent inquiry led by the director of Oxford social services found that the council failed to properly investigate the sexual abuse allegations. http://society.guardian.co.uk/children/story/0,1074,1087250,00.html

Allegations of child abuse at the Islington children's home were borne out by official inquiries.

7. In a number of Leicester children's homes, between 1973 and 1986, various adults were involved in sexual abuse of children. (Uncovering The Past Abuse of Children in Care ).

These were homes run by Frank Beck. At his trial in 1991, Beck was found guilty of 17 counts of physical and sexual abuse.

There was a Police Complaints Authority investigation into why so many of the complaints made to police by children had been ignored.

8. Quarriers Homes, Nazareth House and St Ninians in Scotland - An independent report for the Scottish government found that there has been massive child abuse in Scottish care homes. (Scotland’s shame )

The Herald, 23 November 2007, provides the details (‘These are the voices that need to be heard’) :

"When she was nine - or thereabouts - she (Elizabeth McWilliams) was raped by the man Quarriers called her house father. 'He took his chance,' she said matter-of-factly.

"Some children complained of abuse. That had consequences. 'Boys,' she said. 'Well, they were hung up on door hangers and their penises tied to doorhandles.'"

Quarriers Homes is a Christian community.

Helen Holland was sent to Nazareth House in Kilmarnock, a children's home run by nuns.

At Nazareth House Helen was raped by a priest.

"When she was eight, a nun pulled a hood over her head to help a priest rape her. The sexual abuse went on for three years until, aged 11, she fell pregnant. The same nun kicked her in the stomach until she miscarried."

She was 'beaten to a pulp' by a nun.

There was abuse at many other homes (The landmark cases: abuse in children's homes )

At St Ninians: "In 2003 Michael Murphy, 69, formerly known as Brother Benedict, a monk with the de la Salle order, was jailed for two years on ten charges of physical abuse during the 1960s, including torturing pupils with an electric shock device, force-feeding them vomit and whipping them with knotted boot laces."

9. Moira Anderson
11-year-old Moira Anderson was last seen boarding a bus in Coatbridge, near Glasgow, Scotland, in 1957.

She was on her way to the shops to buy a box of chocolates for her mum’s birthday.

According to The Sunday Times (Pressure on police to release paedophile dossier), 23 April 2006, Strathclyde Police have a dossier listing members of a child-abuse ring.

This dossier may identify the people who kidnapped Moira.

The dossier is said to implicate senior public figures, including senior police officers and members of the Crown Office and former Scottish Office.


These public figures are said to have abused children in Strathclyde (the Glasgow area) during the 1950s and 1960s.

The dossier is said to list vehicles and safe houses used in Glasgow, Monklands and Paisley where children were hidden before being taken to sex parties.

Strathclyde police have decided not to release the dossier.

The dossier was written by James Gallogley, a convicted child-abuser who died in Peterhead prison in 1999.

10. 02/24/2008 - by anonfrombackthen (Police in abuse probe find child remains on Jersey [UK])

"After having spent six months in solitary confinement, in a cell with unbrakeable glass, feeling extremely vulnerable without clothes, knowing that anyone could look through the magnified peephole on the door at any time, (and they did too! cos I could hear them and saw their shadows come and go), I learnt to comply.

"There was no recreation during that time in the cell. I was locked up 24 hours a day for the whole of the six months. Yet I wasnt a criminal. I just didnt get on with my parents, so I took them to court for mental and physical cruelty.

"Of course, they won cos they could afford a solicitor. I couldnt and I would proven uncontrollable and given the choice of going to live with one of my sisters who were married or to go in the home. I didnt think it fair on my sisters cos they all had young families, so I chose the home.

"The six months in solitary was my introduction to Haut de la Garenne. The only contact I had with the outside world in that time was with a member of staff who insisted in supervising my showers and bathroom visits."

The use of militant Moslems in Russia, China, India & Indonesia.


Reportedly, the CIA likes to make life difficult for countries that are potential rivals, such as Russia, China and Iran.

Reportedly, the CIA follows a policy of divide and rule.

Reportedly the CIA has promoted militant Islam in countries such as Afghanistan and Pakistan.

What about China, Russia, Iran, India and elsewhere?

According to UPI (Analysis: Jihad in Asia), Russia has between 19 million and 22 million Muslims. China has some 20 million Muslims.

Reportedly, militant Moslems want an Islamic Caliphate made up of the Central Asian nations, including the Russian province of Chechnya and the Chinese province of Xinjiang.

Could the CIA be fans of these militant Moslems?

According to the Times of India (Terror camps, Pak flags in Karnataka jungles), "a terrorist camp used by self-proclaimed Islamist fundamentalists has been detected in southern India, where a spate of terror attacks in the last few years, such as the ones in Hyderabad's Mecca mosque and the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, have sensitized police to Islamist terrorism."

India is an ally of the USA. But might the CIA want to put pressure on India at certain times?

Moslem Brotherhood leader with Hitler

Perhaps the most important militant Moslem group is the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Muslim Brotherhood is said to have links to MI6 and the CIA.

According to Big Wedding: Chapter Nine:

"According to the (Washington) Post, the CIA relies on the (Muslim) Brotherhood for intelligence.

"'Mastermind of Terror' Khalid Sheikh Mohammed joined the Muslim Brotherhood at age sixteen. Mohammed Atta's father is a member...

"...the CIA is reporting favorable things about the group via the willing vessel of the Washington Post.

"(The) Muslim Brotherhood is also the financial and organizational backbone of not only Al Qaeda, but also Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad...

"...Muslim Brother Ramzi Yousef started planning 9/11 in 1993."

Bali Bomb

Indonesia provides a good example of how militant Moslem groups are apparently used by the CIA and its friends.

There have been a number of 'Islamic terror groups' in Indonesia.

They all seem to be linked to the military: MI6 or the CIA or American trained generals.

In The Age, (We must not get back in bed with Kopassus - theage.com.au), Dr Damien Kingsbury, head of philosophical, political and international studies at Deakin University, wrote about Moslem militants in Indonesia and their links to the military.

1. Komando Jihad, which became Jemaah Islamiah - was set up by (American trained) Indonesian generals.

Dr Kingsbury wrote: "Kopassus (Indonesian special forces)... has engaged in... hostage rescue missions. The first was in 1981, when a Garuda aircraft was hijacked.... Kopassus... set up the Islamic organisation Komando Jihad that hijacked the plane in 1981 and which has since emerged as Jemaah Islamiah."

2. Laskar Jihad - was set up by (American trained) generals.

Jakarta human-rights activist Bonar Naipospos told Asia Times Online:

"General Suparman is one of the generals who was behind the extremist Jihad groups. He set up militias composed of gangsters and religious fanatics to counter student demonstrations in 1998. One of these militias, Pram Swarkasa, became the embryo of Laskar Jihad." (Asia Times We must not get back in bed with Kopassus - theage.com.au)

We should also note that:

3. Bali bomb 'mastermind' Al Faruq - 'worked for the CIA.'

Former Indonesian State Intelligence Coordinating Board (BAKIN) chief A.C. Manulang was quoted by Tempo magazine as suggesting that Al-Farouq was a CIA-recruited agent.

According to a news story in the Sydney Morning Herald, November 2, 2002:

"Some time around the 30 October 2002, senior officers in the Indonesian military HQ gave a piece of information to a military attache from a Western embassy in Indonesia -the source of explosive used in the October 12 bombing in Bali was the head of the counter-terrorism unit with the army's special forces."

The father-in-law of the officer concerned is Hendropriyono, Indonesia's spy chief.

Kuwaiti citizen Omar Al Faruq was arrested in Bogor on June 5, 2002 and handed over to US authorities. Al Faruq was able to escape from custody.

The airline manifest of Garuda airlines shows that at least two generals from Jakarta visited Bali three days before the bombings and that they returned to Jakarta one day before the Sari Club was blown up. This was confirmed by armed forces chief General Sutarto, who claimed that General Djaja Suparman was on vacation, while General Ryamizard Riyacudu, chief of staff, was said to have gone to Bali for health reasons. (Jakarta Post)

4. Islamic guerrillas in the 1960s - were supported by Britain's MI6

The following is from The Independent (UK):

"Cabinet papers show that British spies, including MI6, supported Islamic guerrillas in order to destabilise Sukarno." (Revealed: Healey admits role in British dirty tricks campaign to overthrow Indonesia's President Sukarno, By Paul Lashmar and James Oliver, The Independent - 16 April 2000) The Secret State: MI5 (Home Office/MoD), The Security Service and ...


The following is taken from The British, Muslim Terrorism and September 11

Prior to World War II British Intelligence cultivated ties with the (Muslim) Brotherhood through agent Freya Stark, the British adventurer and writer (A Brutal Friendship - The West and the Arab Elite, Said K. Aburish, 1997) ... The Muslim Brotherhood spread throughout the Muslim world and has evolved into something like a Muslim equivalent of the West's Masonic brotherhood. It became one of the first Islamic Fundamentalist terror organizations...

"According to CIA agent Miles Copeland, the Americans began looking for a Muslim Billy Graham around 1955... When finding or creating a Muslim Billy Graham proved elusive, the CIA began to cooperate with the Muslim Brotherhood, the Muslim mass organization founded in Egypt but with followers throughout the Arab Middle East... This signalled the beginning of an alliance between the traditional regimes and mass Islamic movements against Nasser and other secular forces." (A Brutal Friendship - The West and the Arab Elite, Said K. Aburish, 1997)

The CIA was following the example of British Intelligence and sought to use Islam to further its goals. They wanted to find a charismatic religious leader that they could promote and control and they began to cooperate with groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood. With the rise of Nasser the Brotherhood was also courted more seriously by the pro-Western Arab regimes of Saudi Arabia and Jordan. They needed all the popular support that they could muster against the rise of Nasser-inspired Arab nationalism to keep their regimes intact.

The Muslim Brotherhood was an obvious ally against Nasser, because he had abolished it from Egypt after it was involved in a failed assassination attempt on his life in 1954. The Brotherhood rejected Nasser's policy that, for the most part, kept religion out of politics. Officially the Brotherhood was an outlawed organization, but it remained influential and active within Egypt working against the secular regime, often hand-in-hand with British Intelligence. In June of 1955 MI6 was already approaching the Brotherhood in Syria to agitate against the new government that showed strong left-wing tendencies and a desire to merge with Egypt. The Brotherhood became an even more important asset after Nasser announced the Egyptian takeover of the Suez...

In Syria, in 1982, there was a major conflict between the Muslim Brotherhood and the Syrian government at the city of Hamma that resulted in 20,000 casualties. In the aftermath Syria's President Asad revealed that the Muslim Brotherhood forces were armed with US-made equipment...

Israel, forever inclined to back divisive movements, surfaced as another supporter of Islam and began to fund the Muslim Brotherhood and the Palestinian Islamic movement Hamas.

The most noteworthy success of the Islamic movement during this time was of course the overthrow of the Shah of Iran and the installation of the Ayatollah Khomeini as the Islamic dictator. British Intelligence had used their contacts with Iran's mullahs and ayatollahs to help overthrow Mossadegh and install the Shah back in 1953, and these contacts were maintained and used again to overthrow the Shah when his regime fell out of favor.

The Establishment history of Iran's Islamic Revolution is that Khomeini's revolt was spontaneous and populist, and that it overthrew a repressive dictatorship that was hated by the people but supported wholeheartedly by the United States. It is true that the Shah's government was not a democracy and that his secret service, trained by the CIA, was one of the most effective intelligence organizations in the world. But what is not reported is that prior to the British-sponsored massive public relations campaign on behalf of the Ayatollah the government of the Shah was loved by the vast majority of the population.

After taking over from Mossadegh the Shah began to push forward a number of nationalist policies that increased his popularity at home but, in some cases, worried the Anglo-American Establishment. First, he signed petroleum agreements with ENI, the Italian oil company. Then in 1963 he pushed forward on a series of popular reforms that became known as the White Revolution. The Shah evolved into a nationalist whose path paralleled that of Nasser far too much for the Establishment's liking:

- He bought land from the upper classes and, along with the crown's own land, sold it back cheaply to tenant farmers, allowing over one a half million people to become land owners and ending the old feudal system.

- He allowed women the right to vote, and brought an end to the wearing of the veil, which were "Westernizing" moves unwelcomed by the religious sector.

- He pushed forward on a $90 billion nuclear power program.

- He moved to shut down the lucrative opium industry that had been created during the days of British Empire control that had been running for a hundred years...(http://www.sedona.net/pahlavi/mrp.html and http://www.cbc.ca/news/indepth/iran/iran2.html)

In 1973 The Economist magazine featured Iran on the front cover with the caption: "Iran the Next Japan of the Middle East?" Iran's economy had grown at a rate of 7-8% each year from 1965-1973 and was becoming an example for the developing nations of the world to follow. As far as the Anglo-American Establishment was concerned this could not be allowed to continue.

The attack on the Shah's government came through the Muslim Brotherhood and through the mullahs and ayatollahs of Iran, supported and manipulated by British Intelligence...

Dr. John Coleman, a former British Intelligence agent... states in his report on Iran's Islamic Revolution that the Muslim Brotherhood was created by "the great names of British Middle East intelligence" ...and that their mission was to "keep the Middle East backward so that its natural resource, oil, could continue to be looted..."

Dr. Coleman writes that in 1980 the broadcasts of Radio Free Iran divided the enemies of the Shah into four categories: 1. Iranian politicians bought by the Israeli Shin Bet, 2. The CIA's network of agents, 3. The feudal landowners, 4. The Freemasons and the Muslim Brotherhood (viewed as the same enemy).

In his report Dr. Coleman writes that in Iran, "At one time there was even a joke about the mullahs being stamped 'made in Britain.'" When the Shah introduced his plan for modernization in 1963 the Ayatollah Khomeini emerged as the leader of the religious opposition. Up until his exile from Iran in 1964, Khomeini was based at the religious city of Qom. Dr. Coleman relates that Radio Free Iran claimed that while at Qom Khomeini received a "monthly stipend from the British, and he is in constant contact with his masters, the British."

Britain's murderous military

Louise Jensen

In Cyprus, in 1994, three British soldiers kidnapped, raped and murdered a girl called Louise Jensen.

Louise was repeatedly raped and then beaten to death with a shovel.

On 27 March 1996, the three soldiers were convicted of abduction, rape and manslaughter and sentenced to life imprisonment. (Louise Jensen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

They were released in August 2006 after spending only a few years in custody.

On 3 February 2008, nine British troops serving in Cyprus were arrested and charged after allegedly smashing up a pub and attacking locals in the holiday resort of Ayia Napa.

Police said around 20 soldiers burst into the Bedrock pub in the southern coastal town and starting wrecking it. (Nine British soldiers arrested after Cyprus resort rampage)

This is at a time when the Cypriots are increasingly keen to kick the British military out of Cyprus. (PLOTS IN CYPRUS)

Baha Mousa

Private Stuart Mackenzie was in Iraq in 2003 ( Diary of a squaddie: Sunburn, sore feet and three more Ali Babas ... ) He was attached to the Queen's Lancashire Regiment which ran the detention centre in which Iraqi hotel worker Baha Mousa was held before dying from the 93 injuries he sustained.

Mackenzie kept a diary and extracts were produced at the court martial of the seven soldiers who were acquitted of abusing prisoners.

Mackenzie wrote:

Leg and a winged [threw] Ali Baba into Shat al Arab [Shatt al-Arab canal] for stealing wood. Piss funny....

On 4 hour patrol - ... found anti-aircraft gun ... Horse bit me. Found 3 Ali Babas at WTP7. Beat them up with sticks and filmed it - good day so far...

House raid, for hours, nothing found. Caught 3 Ali Babas - beat fuck out of them in back of Saxon. 1 had a punctured lung + broken ribs + fingers. 1 had a dislocated shoulder + broken fingers...


The British military have a growing reputation for behaving like Nazis.

According to some historians, Britain bears “significant responsibility” since 1945 for the direct or indirect deaths of 8.6 million to 13.5 million people throughout the world from military interventions and at the hands of regimes strongly supported by Britain. (Unpeople, Dirty Wars and a Web of Deceit – Britain’s Foreign ...)


Harry Farr

During World War I, Britain executed 306 of its own soldiers, some as young as 14 years of age. (http://www.wsws.org/articles/1999/nov1999/shot-n16.shtml)

From an article by Harvey Thompson at WSWS 16 November 1999:

A typical case is that of Harry Farr, who joined the British Expeditionary Force in 1914 and fought in the trenches.

His position was repeatedly shelled, and in May 1915 he collapsed with strong convulsions.

In hospital, his wife Gertrude—who was denied a widow's pension after the war—recalled, “he shook all the time. He couldn't stand the noise of the guns. We got a letter from him, but it was in a stranger's handwriting. He could write perfectly well, but couldn't hold the pen because his hand was shaking.”

It is now thought that Farr was possibly suffering from hypacusis, which occurs when the eardrums are so damaged that the auditory nerve becomes exposed, making loud noises physically unbearable. Despite this, Farr was sent back to the front and fought at the Somme. After several months of fighting, he requested to see a medical orderly but was refused.

In Farr's Court Martial papers, the Sergeant Major is quoted as saying “If you don't go up to the f*****g front, I'm going to f*****g blow your brains out” to which Farr simply replied “I just can't go on.”

The Court Martial was over in 20 minutes. Harry Farr had to defend himself. General Haig signed his death warrant and he was shot at dawn on October 16, 1916.

Prior to World War II, elements of the British military were fans of Hitler.

According to Admiral Sir Barry Domville, a pre-war head of UK Naval Intelligence, Hitler was "absolutely terrific."

Wing Commander Frederick Winterbottom, a pre-war head of MI6's air section, reportedly hoped Britain and Germany would unite against Stalin's Russia. (Hackitectura Advance - [History of M15)


Photo: British concentration camp.

Giles MacDonogh has written After the Reich: The Brutal History of the Allied Occupation. (A hellish peace)

According to MacDonogh's evidence, at the end of World War II, the British military and its allies went in for rape, torture and murder.

Ian Cobain, in The Guardian 17 December 2005 wrote about the secret torture centres set up by the British military after World War II - The interrogation camp that turned prisoners into living skeletons ...


One of the British torture centres was at Bad Nenndorf, near Hanover.

372 men and 44 women passed through the Bad Nenndorf torture centre during the 22 months it operated before its closure in July 1947.

A Scotland Yard detective, Inspector Tom Hayward, investigated Bad Nenndorf.

He describes how prisoners were systematically beaten and exposed to extreme cold; some were starved to death and, allegedly, tortured with instruments that his fellow countrymen had recovered from a Gestapo prison in Hamburg.

Many of the prisoners were simply German leftists.

Others were Germans living in the Russian zone who had crossed the line, offered to spy on the Russians, and were tortured to establish whether they were genuine defectors.

Published in The Guardian: archive pictures of German prisoners held by the British following the second world war. Photographs: Martin Argles. The postwar photographs that British authorities tried to keep ...

One of the men who was starved to death, Walter Bergmann, had offered to spy for the British, and fell under suspicion because he spoke Russian.

Another man who starved to death, Franz Osterreicher, had been arrested while attempting to enter the British zone in search of his gay lover.

Ingrid Groth, then a seven-year-old, said locals claimed that if you crept up to the barbed wire at night, you could hear the prisoners' screams.

The commanding officer was Robin "Tin Eye" Stephens of MI5.

The inmates were starved, woken during the night, and forced to walk up and down their cells from early morning until late at night. When moving about the prison they were expected to run, while soldiers kicked them.

Prisoners could be stripped and repeatedly doused in water. This punishment could continue for weeks, even in sub-zero temperatures.

Naked prisoners were handcuffed back-to-back and forced to stand before open windows in midwinter. Frostbite became common.

One victim of the cold cell punishment was Buttlar...an anti-Nazi, he had spent two years as a prisoner of the Gestapo.

"I never in all those two years had undergone such treatments," he said.


Reportedly, the British military also got into bed with the Nazis.

After the war, "British authorities called off the hunt for the man who organised the Nazi Holocaust just 17 months after the end of World War II, files have revealed. The files relating to Adolf Eichmann were released by The National Archives. They show that at the time the decision was made, Eichmann was hiding in the British-controlled zone of Germany. He went to Argentina in 1950." - Eichmann search was ended early

Horst Kopkow, one of Hitler’s top spies, who ordered the murders of more than 100 British secret agents in concentration camps, was spared execution as a war criminal and went to work for MI6. Evidence emerged in the 1980s that Britain had become a refuge for suspected war criminals. - http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,2-1611185,00.html

Historian Mark Curtis has written: 1. 'Unpeople: Britain’s Secret Human Rights Abuses' (2004) 2. 'Web of Deceit: Britain’s Real Role in the World' (2003) Published by Vintage.

Paul Cochrane, at Worldpress.org , 6 January 2005, (Unpeople, Dirty Wars and a Web of Deceit – Britain’s Foreign ...) reviewed Curtis's books.

He wrote:

According to new research, Britain bears “significant responsibility” since 1945 for the direct or indirect deaths of 8.6 million to 13.5 million people throughout the world from military interventions and at the hands of regimes strongly supported by Britain.

Curtis said he came up with the term “Unpeople” because he thought it adequately described the British government’s attitude towards people who are expendable in Britain’s pursuit of economic and political goals.

“Last year,” Curtis said in a phone interview, “there was a British army officer who was quoted in Iraq as saying the Americans view the Iraqis only as Untermenschen, the Nazi concept of subhuman. In a way, the British have no real different regard for Iraqis than Americans."

Mark Curtis says that in 1971 an official British investigation found that the British army's torture techniques "played an important part in counter-insurgency operations in Palestine, Malaya, Kenya, Cyprus and the British Cameroons (1960-1), Brunei (1963), British Guiana (1964), Aden (1964-7), Borneo/Malaysia (1965-6), the Persian Gulf (1970-1) and in Northern Ireland (1971)".

In KENYA, the British used beatings, sexual humiliation, hooding, sleep deprivation, and bombarding with white noise.

32 Whites were killed by the Mau Mau during the five-year state of emergency. More whites died in traffic accidents in the capital city, Nairobi.

Kenyans were forced into concentration camps and routinely tortured. Some 150,000 Africans died as a direct result of the British policy.

There was a "constant stream of reports of brutalities by police, military and home guards", wrote Canon Bewes, a British missionary. "Some of the people had been using castration instruments and two men had died under castration."

Other brutalities included slicing off ears, boring holes in eardrums, flogging people to death, pouring paraffin over suspects and setting them alight and burning eardrums with cigarettes.

A British district officer admitted, "There was outright abuse of power and some of the crimes committed were horrific. One day six Mau Mau suspects were brought into a police station in the neighbouring district to mine. The British police inspector in charge lined them up against a wall and shot them."

A mobile gallows travelled the country. Over 1,000 were hanged, their bodies displayed at crossroads and market places.

MALAYSIA

The British used terror in Malaya.

This involved aerial bombing, massacres of villagers, dictatorial police measures and the "resettlement" of hundreds of thousands of people.

CYPRUS

During the state of emergency, from 1952 to 1957, the British army used torture.

Cypriot Nicos Koshies:

"They took me to the Special Branch and they started beating me. They took off all my clothes, they tied my hands and feet. They asked somebody to come in. He was taking a stick to put up my bottom, he was putting cloths in water and putting them on my face so I could not breathe, he threw me down and danced on my stomach when he was wearing boots. After 12 days I could not recognise myself."

James Callaghan in the House of Commons:

"On 29 June 1957 an inquest was held into the death of Nicos Georghiou. Dr Clearkin said in evidence that bruises in the head were sufficiently severe to have caused the injuries to the brain, perhaps bumping the head against a hard object."

IRAN

In 1953 a coup organised by the British and the USA overthrew Mossadeq and gave power to the Shah.

British SAS forces trained the Shah's Savak secret police.

SAS officers helped train the Iranian army in special operations against the Kurds.

The Shah's regime used torture until it was overthrown in 1979.

ADEN/SOUTH YEMEN

In Aden, later known as South Yemen, SAS squads used terror against local villages.

An official investigation found that from 1964 to 1967 detainees at a British interrogation centre were routinely tortured. Their eardrums were burst.

Others were forced to lean against walls with their fingertips for day and subjected to white noise for hours.

BAHRAIN

Former detainees in Bahrain have described being beaten, electrocuted, whipped, tied in excruciating positions for days on end, kept awake, starved and having their toenails torn out.

NORTHERN IRELAND

The Compton official inquiry acknowledged that the army hooded suspects, fed them on just bread and water and blasted them with noise.

An Amnesty International report said, "It is because we regard the deliberate destruction of a man's ability to control his own mind with revulsion that we reserve a special place in our catalogue of moral crimes for techniques of thought control and brainwashing. Any interrogation procedure which has the purpose or effect of causing a malfunction or breakdown of a man's mental processes constitutes as grave an assault on the inherent dignity of the human person as more traditional techniques of physical torture."

A European human rights report found that British army techniques amounted to "inhuman and degrading treatment" causing "at least intense physical and mental suffering".

PLOT TO TOPPLE TURKISH GOVERNMENT

Photo of Turkish military from http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:N%C3%A9rostrateur

What is the evidence that extreme nationalist sections of the Turkish military are plotting to grab power?

On 4 February 2008, the BBC's news website had an item entitled: 'Deep state plot' Coup rumours about rogue security officials set Turkey abuzz

The BBC's Sarah Rainsford refers to an ultra-nationalist gang known as Ergenekon.

This gang has allegedly been plotting to topple the Turkish government.

Thirty three alleged members of the gang were grabbed in a police raid in January 2008.

It is alleged that the gang's plan was to destabilise Turkey by assassinating a number of Turkish intellectuals, including Nobel Laureate Orhan Pamuk.

Allegedly, this was supposed to lead to the military taking over Turkey in 2009.

According to the Hurriyet newspaper, a list of targets had been drawn up and a hitman hired.

Sabah newspaper linked the gang to the recent murder of three Protestant Christians and Turkish-Armenian journalist Hrant Dink.

Those detained include retired Brig General Veli Kucuk, an alleged mafia boss.

In June 2007, a raid in Istanbul uncovered a large amount of hand grenades and explosives. A number of former military personnel were detained at that time.

The Ergenekon affair has been the top news in Turkish newspapers.

The newspapers refer to the 'deep state', namely the 'fascist' generals and members of the elite.

Xymphora considers that the revelations about the ultra nationalist deep state may suit one faction of the American government.

Xymphora (permanent link) writes:

"Christopher Deliso describes – if you read between the lines – how the adults (i.e., non-neocons) in the American government are working with the Turkish government, the Turkish military (at least the ones not involved in the plots), and the Turkish financial elites to remove the ‘deep state’ forces in Turkey, forces whose excessive nationalism and violence is incompatible with modern capitalism.

"The new American nuke deal with Turkey has nothing to do with the Edmonds story (obviously, as it does nothing to absolve the people alleged to have done wrong, and only emphasizes the issue), but is apparently part of the carrot being held out to the Turks (and thus it is not a coincidence that the attack on the ‘deep state’ and the new American nuke cooperation are happening at the same time). American corporations will make money the old-fashioned way, by selling enormously overpriced nuclear technology."


In previous decades, the CIA and its friends in NATO are reported to have employed paramilitary gangs in order to keep the 'right wing' in power in Europe, including Turkey.

"Those structures still exist," claims newspaper columnist Cengiz Candar. ('Deep state plot' Coup rumours about rogue security officials set Turkey abuzz)

In 1996, a car crashed in the town of Susurluk. The car contained a senior police chief, a prominent politician and a wanted assassin.

According to Cengiz Candar, "Susurluk revealed weird connections between state officials and those who operate outside the limits of the law. It happened at a time when we had a lot of extra-judicial killings in Turkey."

"But the investigation stopped just as there was speculation it was reaching very sensitive spots, even the military establishment. That only confirmed the existence of these networks in the public consciousness." ('Deep state plot' Coup rumours about rogue security officials set Turkey abuzz)

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has used the term "deep state" to describe the police operation against Ergenekon.

Erdogan is quoted as saying: "These gangs are not new in our country. Our aim is to get rid of them. We see gangs in the most important institutions. People who once worked in these institutions join these organisations .... There is a deep Turkey working against the deep state. This prevents them [the gangs] being as active as they once were."

The Turkish army's chief-of-staff, General Buyukanit, has defended the military, saying that "the Turkish military is not a criminal organisation." ('Deep state plot' Coup rumours about rogue security officials set Turkey abuzz )

Who is behind the terrorism in Turkey? Could it be fascists within the military?

The Economist, 22 December 2007, tells us about terror attacks on Christians in Turkey (The cross and the crescent):

In January 2007, Hrant Dink, an ethnic Armenian newspaper editor, was shot dead in Istanbul.

In April 2007, two Turks and a German, all Christian evangelists, were murdered in Malatya.

Husnu Ondul is president of the Turkish Human Rights Association.

Like many others, Ondul believes that the 'deep state', is behind the attacks.

The 'deep state' is made up of a few judges, army officers and security officials.

They need enemies to justify their grip on power.

Evidence leaked to the media in the Dink and Malatya cases points to collusion between the murderers and elements of the police and army.

The ruling Justice and Development (AK) party has treated Christians better than its secular predecessors did.

"The deep state is still in charge,” says a Christian priest.


Operation Gladio reportedly involved getting right-wing terrorists to carry out terrorist attacks in Europe and in Turkey, in order to keep right wing parties in power.

Operation Gladio was reportedly organised by Nato and the CIA.

"The CONTRA-GUERRILLAS, which were the GLADIO organisation in Turkey, were set up from the 1950s onwards and played a significant part in fascist governments during the modern history of Turkey, irrespective of whether these had a veneer of parliamentary democracy or were an overt military junta." http://www.stopthenato.org/m/zit/id_ses/2337520f9/id_p/10/opt/read_e/id_s/433.html

"Utilizing the fascist and ultra-nationalist National Action Party and its youth wing, the Gray Wolves, the Turkish 'Stay Behind' also resulted in the type of right-wing terror program and destabilization effort that it did in Italy." http://www.spitfirelist.com/f059.html

When the Islamist prime minister Necemettin Erbakan took power in 1996, the Turkish military, quickly eased him out of power.

In elections for the Turkish parliament on November 3, 2002, a new party formed out of a banned Islamic movement - the Justice and Development Party (AKP) - won 35 percent of the popular vote and 363 of the 550 seats.

This may have worried the Pentagon, Israel, the Turkish military and the Turkish drugs industry.

According to a report in The Jerusalem Post (http://www.hr-action.org/archive1/990225tjp1.html), intelligence cooperation between the Mossad and the Turkish security service, MIT, "was enshrined in a 12-clause agreement that was signed during a 1993 visit to Israel by then-Turkish foreign minister Hikmat Chetin".

Soon after, according to the London-based newsletter Foreign Report, a large Mossad operation was established in Turkey, with Mossad agents based in both Istanbul and Ankara.

In 2003, there was a major bombing attack in istanbul.

The Turkish Top Military Brass met Paul Wolfowitz one day before theIstanbul Attacks (http://globalresearch.ca/articles/ANA311A.html)

The two Istanbul attacks respectively on the HSBC in the financial district and on the British Consulate were, according to media reports "timed to coincide with President George Bush's state visit to London."

The attacks took place one day following the completion of the annual Turkish-US Joint Defense Group meeting (17-19 November 2003).


The British Consul General Roger Short, was killed by the bomb as he was entering the consulate building. Press reports confirmed that he had cancelled an appointment at the last minute and "if he had gone to his appointment, he would have been alive"

The attacks create conditions for Turkey's participation in the war on terrorism.

The attacks serve to strengthen the Anglo-American military axis and the legitimacy of Bush's "War on terrorism."

The Istanbul bombings also serve to uphold the shaky legitimacy of Prime Minister Tony Blair in the face of mounting political opposition to Britain's' participation in the US led war.

"A Turkish daily close to the ruling justice and development party quoted Turkish intelligence sources as saying that the Mossad had established the organization that launched the two attacks on 15th November, 2003." http://www.mediareviewnet.com/Zionist%20intelligence%20engineered%20Istanbul%20blasts.htm

Online Journal had an article about Turkey and drugs.
http://www.onlinejournal.com/Special_Reports/062904Stanton/062904stanton.html

Turkey is a major refining and transit point for the flow of heroin from Southwest Asia to Western Europe.

Kendal Nezan, writing for Le Monde Diplomatique, has reported that MIT (the Turkish security services) and the Turkish National Police force were actively supporting the trade in illicit drugs not only for fun and profit, but out of desperation.

"After the Gulf War in 1991, Turkey found itself deprived of the all-important Iraqi market and, since it lacked significant oil reserves of its own, it decided to make up for the loss by turning more massively to drugs.

"The trafficking increased in intensity with the arrival of the hawks in power, after the death in suspicious circumstances of President Turgut Özal in April 1993.

"According to the minister of interior, the war in Kurdistan had cost the Turkish exchequer upwards of $12.5 billion.

"According to the daily Hürriyet, Turkey's heroin trafficking brought in $25 billion in 1995 and $37.5 billion in 1996 . . .

"Only criminal networks working in close cooperation with the police and the army could possibly organize trafficking on such a scale.

"Drug barons have stated publicly, on Turkish television and in the West, that they have been working under the protection of the Turkish government and to its financial benefit.

"The traffickers themselves travel on diplomatic passports.

"The drugs are even transported by military helicopter from the Iranian border."

The Middle East Report concluded in 1998 that probably the greatest strategic move in the Clinton post-Cold War years is what could be called "The Ankara Pact"—an alliance between the US, Turkey, and Israel that essentially circumvents and bottles up the Arab countries.

In 1998, Israeli, Turkish and American military forces engaged in exercises in the Mediterranean, according to Reuters and Agencie France Press.

"[These exercises] signal to the radical states in the region that there is a strong alliance between Israel, Turkey and the United States which they must fear."

Reports also indicated that the CIA and Pentagon intelligence organizations had regularly chaired meetings of Turkish and Israeli officers in Tel Aviv for years.

The shooting of Benazir Bhutto



Benazir Bhutto was shot, possibly by multiple snipers.

Scotland Yard, the people discredited by the de Menezes shooting, does not support the idea of multiple snipers. ( Bhutto's Death Caused by Bomb, Not Bullet, Scotland Yard Says)

"Ms Bhutto - the first woman PM in an Islamic state - was leaving an election rally in Rawalpindi when a gunman shot her in the neck," declared the BBC on 27 December 2007. (BBC NEWS South Asia Benazir Bhutto killed in attack)

CNN has a video which suggests Bhutto was shot (New video appears to show Bhutto being shot - CNN.com)

Initial police reports stated that one or more assassins fired at Bhutto's Toyot Land Cruiser just as she was about to drive off after the rally. (Can Musharraf Survive?)

Ron Moreau in Newsweek, 27 December 2007, wrote: "a gunman ran up to her car, peppering it with automatic-weapon fire... Bhutto, who was standing inside the car, her head and shoulders exposed, was hit in the head and neck by the bullets." (Can Musharraf Survive?)

According to Sify News: "Benazir Bhutto could not have been fatally inured even if she did hit her head on the sunroof lever of her Land Cruiser, says an official of the Toyota that manufactures the vehicle...

"According to the official, the lever could not have caused the head injury as it was installed inside the vehicle and was at least six centimetres from the edge of the sunroof...

"Government spokesman Javed Iqbal Cheema said that Bhutto was killed after she hit her head against the sunroof lever of her Toyota Land Cruiser as it left the Liaqat Bagh in the twin city of Rawalpindi after addressing a rally. Cheema did not dispute the fact that three bullets were fired." ('Sunroof injury couldn't have killed Bhutto')

According to Thaindian News: "Former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, 54, was shot at and killed by at least two snipers before a suicide bomb attack on the periphery of her carcade.

"Police confirmed that the snipers fired five bullets from AK-47 assault rifles. Two of the bullets hit Benazir in the neck, while a third hit her forehead." - reports

Xymphora wrote: "Remember the concept of ‘triangulation’ from the 'JFK' movie. Some reports ... are claiming multiple snipers firing at Bhutto, and multiple snipers also attacked a Nawaz Sharif rally. This appears to be standard American military procedure for a can’t-fail assassination, and is what the Pentagon (probably) used against JFK." - Xymphora permanent link

CIA plot to topple Kenya's leader?

Why might the USA and and its allies want to topple Kenya's president, Mwai Kibaki?

Does the USA believe that Kibaki has become too friendly with the Chinese?

The Chinese defence minister visited Kenya just before the elections and agreed to modernise Kenya's armed forces. (The sound of silence)

China's trade with Kenya is rising.

The Chinese have invested in mining and offshore oil exploration, plus some big infrastructure projects, such as new bypasses around Nairobi. (The sound of silence)

Kenya is the base for US intelligence operations in East Africa and the Horn of Africa. (Kenya: post-election violence continues)

There are newly discovered oil reserves in Eastern Congo. The oil is to be brought by pipeline through Kenya to Mombasa on the coast.

China is currently involved in major highway projects in Kenya." (Kenya: post-election violence continues)

Opposition leader Raila Odinga 'has encouraged his supporters in the Rift Valley to drive out Kikuyu farmers and seize their land... leaflets have come to light calling for ethnic killings. Tribal elders are known to have organised meetings to discuss attacks on their Kikuyu neighbours. Immediately the election result was known, the killings began in many separate areas of the country.'

Diana, Palestinians, arms deals and 9 11.

Landmine victims were found in 65 countries and regions in 2005-2006, numbering over 40 victims a day http://www.chugoku-np.co.jp/hiroshima-koku/en/special/index_20070416.html


Imagine a Moslem Princess Diana visiting Palestine with her half Arabic child and speaking up on behalf of Palestinians.

Imagine that she also speaks out against the arms industry and wars for oil.

Imagine a Diana and Dodi who might have known a little bit too much about certain murky goings-on.

Key positions in the British and American security services, governments and media are occupied by friends of Israel and friends of the military-industrial complex.

Key members of the establishment may have wanted Diana dead.

Journalist and author Nicholas Davies describes the motive for Diana's murder as follows:

She had campaigned against landmines.

She wanted to become an icon for all the refugees of this world.

'She intended to start a campaign in a Palestinian refugee camp in Gaza or the West Bank.'

(ZDF, Frontal 21, German TV, Documentary on Diana, 28.10.2003 -Cached)

Allegedly, the CIA and NSA have files revealing their complicity in the murder of Diana; these files allegedly reveal that the princess was pregnant with Dodi Fayed's child. ( Cached )

Allegedly, President Clinton's 'sex' problems are linked to his pledge to support Diana's landmines campaign. (Cached)

Former MI6 spy Richard Tomlinson has stated:

"In 1992 I was working on an operation to recover high-tech weapons from the former Soviet Union. This operation was being conducted in collaboration with a very powerful arms dealer whose exact identity I did not know.

"When I read the file I discovered that this arms dealer was in very frequent contact with Mr Mohamed Al Fayed. I saw that the MI6 informant supplying this information had a code beginning with P, followed by several numbers. As this source was mentioned several times I tried to find out who it was. It was a Frenchman who was head of security at the Ritz Hotel." - Shaphan: December 2006

Mohamed Fayed reportedly made his money after he married Samira Khashoggi, the sister of the international arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi, who employed him in his import business in Saudi Arabia.

Reportedly, Khashoggi was implicated in the Iran-Contra Affair as a key middleman in the arms-for-hostages exchange along with Iranian arms dealer Manucher Ghorbanifar.

Reportedly, in 2006, Khashoggi was named in the News of the World as a client of Heather Mills McCartney when she allegedly worked as an escort.

Allegedly, Khashoggi had links to the flight school where Mohamed Atta learnt to fly.

What are the alleged Khashoggi links to 9 11?

The following comes from - Adnan Khashoggi Linked to 911 Terrorists

Of the 220 flight schools in Florida, Atta had to pick Huffman.

Wallace Hilliard, Khashoggi's lackey, bought Huffman Aviation in 1999, and hired Rudi Dekkers, a Dutchman, to run it. The following year, Hilliard's LearJet was stopped on the runway at Orlando Executive Airport by armed DEA agents.

At Huffman, too, the CIA was a silent partner. Sander Hickes, a reporter for the Long Island Press, found that Hilliard "did business with Myron Du Bain, who worked alongside late ex-CIA director John McCone on the boards of several banks. Du Bain was chairman of the Fireman's Fund Insurance Company in 1981 when the company announced plans to acquire Employers Health, an insurance company cofounded by Hilliard."9

In July, Daniel Hopsicker, after a two-year investigation into Huffman Aviation, offered from his MadCowMorningNews web soapbox the suggestion that Mohammed Atta had been engaged "in a lucrative drug trafficking operation which linked Osama bin Laden's thugs and drug lieutenants to their equally-thuggish American counterparts. This places the two terrorists at the same airport where DEA agents brandishing submachine guns seized a Lear jet belonging to the owner of the flight school [Hilliard] where Atta and Al-shehhi were taking lessons ... at that very moment."

DEA agents, Hopsicker wrote, "discovered 43 pounds of heroin aboard Hilliard's Lear. The Orlando Sentinel hailed the bust as 'the largest seizure in Central Florida's history.' After we'd learned the whole story, we discovered the bust had been an accident, carried out by low-level DEA operatives not clued-in to the protected nature of the trade. Nor was this the only time Hilliard's name came up in connection with narcotics trafficking."10

Likewise, Hilliard's Saudi boss would soon be immersed in criminal activity of his own -- with direct ties to terrorism -- in Armenia. Banking fraud was rampant there, Global News Wire reported in August, 2004, "thanks to the Arab millionaire Adnan Khashoggi - an active partner of Armenian businessmen in the illicit drug and arms trades." Khashoggi's first bucket-shop banking operation was a branch of the Caucasus Investment Bank in Susa. In quick succession, with the assistance of Abu Muslum, an Arab businessman, he opened the Hamaz and Beit ul-Muqaddas banks.

Rovsan Novruzoglu, a political scientist and director of the International Strategic Research Center in Azerbaijan, observes that Adnan Khashoggi's banks "played a big part in the formation of terrorist camps and in the opening of laboratories for developing chemical and bacteriological weapons in Nagornyy Karabakh."11

Is the IRA run by the British security services?


In the 1960s the Nationalist movement in Northern Ireland became more active.

At that time, there was much sympathy for the Nationalists in the United Kingdom and there was the possibility that the Nationalists might achieve their objective of breaking Northern Ireland away from Great Britain.

The British security services seem to have decided to try to discredit the Nationalists by getting them involved in acts of violence.

Roy McShane and Freddie Scappaticci (Stakeknife) were key members of the IRA’s internal security (counter-intelligence) unit.

McShane was implicated in the murder of West German industrialist Thomas Niedermayer in December 1973.

Scappaticci reportedly took part in the murders of a number of people accused of informing against the IRA. (Freddie Scappaticci - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

Denis Donaldson was head of Sinn Fein's administration at Stormont.

Donaldson and McShane were key aides of Gerry Adams.

Sean O'Callaghan was at one time IRA southern commander.

Kevin Fulton has described how he worked for the IRA in the job of upgrading IRA bomb-making technology.

Martin McGartland worked inside the IRA's Belfast brigade.

It has now been revealed that McShane, Scappaticci, Donaldson, O'Callaghan, Fulton and McGartland were all working for the British security services.

(Republicans reeling after spy unmasked / British spy was 20 years with Sinn Fein leader / · Latest mole in Sinn Fein drove Gerry Adams)


On 28 May 2006, The Sunday World, a Dublin newspaper, quoted Martin Ingram, the pseudonym of a former member of the British Army’s Force Research Unit as saying: “McGuinness was working for MI6.”

Martin McGuinness is Sinn Fein’s chief negotiator and a former Provisional IRA chief-of-staff.

The newspaper's story is based on an alleged conversation between an MI6 spy and an agent known as “J118”. The conversation was about an imminent Provisional IRA attack. The MI6 agent encouraged his handler to “push this along as quickly as possible”. Six people died in the attack.

Mr Ingram told the Sunday World: “It has been confirmed to me that J118 is Martin McGuinness. The most significant thing for me . . . is the fact that McGuinness’s handler is the driving force behind the human bomb campaign.”

(Sources include: McGuinness was agent for MI6, former officer claims )

The bomb in the town of Omagh, in Northern Ireland, in August 1998, killed 29 people and injured more than 200.

Accusations have been made that the bombing was the work of a British double agent within the Real IRA.

Kevin Fulton, an ex-British army soldier, says he was recruited by the British secret service to spy on the IRA in the 1980s.

Fulton alleged, in comments to the Guardian and Channel 4 News, that two days before the bombing, he met a senior member of the Real IRA in a pub in Dundalk. He states that the man told him, “There’s something big on." The man had definitely "been making a bomb”.

Fulton said that he informed his RUC handler “within hours” and that his handler had subsequently confirmed that this information “was put into the system”.

A portion of Fulton’s interview with Channel Four:

Q: “You think that some of the people responsible for the Omagh bomb were informing at the time?”
Fulton: “Yes, no doubt”.
Q: “And they couldn’t be compromised?
Fulton: “I don’t think the Omagh bombers meant to kill people. The thing is they did, shit happened.”
Q: “Were the RUC warned about the bomb?
Fulton: “I wouldn’t say they were warned; they would have known that certain things would have happened, yes.”
Q: And you know that for sure?
Fulton: “Yes.”

Fulton stated to the Guardian that he passed on the name of the Real IRA member he suspected of making a bomb to the RUC and also gave the suspect’s car registration number.

Fulton alleges that the British and Irish security forces allowed the bomb to travel in a stolen car from the nearby town of Dundalk to Omagh because if it was prevented it could lead to the compromising and possible exposure of agents within the Real IRA.

Why did Sinn Fein reportedly close their office the day before the bomb?

Why was the army confined to barracks?

Why did the RUC have only three men on the streets of Omagh and 24 men in surrounding areas?

A former British double agent, Michael Clark, stated: “It makes perfect sense for the army or the intelligence services to allow the progress and delivery of a device of some nature to preserve and protect the safety of an agent. I believe that is possibly the case”.

Is it possible that a British agent within the Real IRA planted the Omagh bomb?

The Force Research Unit (FRU) was an undercover security operation financed and run by the British state in Northern Ireland for more than two decades.

According to WSWS, "The FRU was a terror network that organised a series of covert intelligence and military operations and authorised their agents to carry out numerous illegal activities including bomb making, murder, and the shooting of RUC officers."

http://www.wsws.org/articles/2001/sep2001/ire-a04.shtml

Fulton claims that he became an IRA member on FRU instructions, and took part in a series of terrorist bombings in the 1980s and the early 1990s. These included the 1993 bombing that decimated the town centre in Portadown.

According to WSWS, Britain was "a political beneficiary of the Omagh bombing."

It led to a public outcry demanding an end to violence and helped isolate the groups opposed to the signing of the Northern Ireland Agreement.

According to WSWS, "the bombing provided a pretext for the Blair government to introduce new laws before a specially recalled Parliament."

These laws allow the conviction of someone belonging to a proscribed organisation on the evidence of a senior police officer alone.

A defendant’s right to silence was breached.

The measures include powers to convict people on the basis of conspiring within Britain to commit terrorist offences anywhere in the world, making it possible to criminalise and even ban a swathe of organisations opposed to regimes friendly towards Britain.
