A BRITISH PLOT AGAINST PAKISTAN? BRITISH CHINOOKS TRANSPORT TERRORISTS?

Spot the Brit. (www.rusi.org/.../commentary/ref:C4AB377DACA5CF/)

According to the BBC, "on Christmas Day 2007, the Afghan government said it was expelling two high level diplomats, one a British UN political affairs expert, the other, an Irishman and the acting head of the European Union mission." (BBC NEWS 'Great Game' or just misunderstanding?)

According to the Independent: "Britain planned to build a Taliban training camp for 2,000 fighters in southern Afghanistan." (Revealed: British plan to build training camp for Taliban fighters ...)

A post at this site Cached tells us of the British government link to the terror in Pakistan.

In 2007 Pakistani Intelligence traced the source of much of terror in Pakistan to a 'terrorist' camp in Helmand province in Afghanistan.

The camp was run by Michael Semple and Mervyn Patterson.

Both of these British spooks were ostensibly working with humanitarian organizations.

Following extraordinary intelligence work by ISI, Karzai of Afghanistan and high officials in the Musharraf government exchanged visits which eventually resulted in the arrest and expulsion of Patterson and Semple from Afghanistan.

In December of 2007 Guardian and Independent published stories that were clearly designed to muddle the facts and divert attention away from the real story.

The real story was that these training camps were to create the Pakistan Taliban or Tehreek-e Taliban-e Pakistan (TMP); but why?

If the Taliban were to take over some areas in Pakistan and a part of the capital, then this would provide a sufficient basis for the US to bomb Pakistani nuclear installations and cease their nuclear weapons.

There were serious war plans and military exercises conducted by US forces for this scenario.

On 19 October 2009, it was treported that the Pakistan Taliban (TTP) leaders were being evacuated by mysterious airlifts

"Mysterious airlifting of some Taliban elements from areas of the Pakistan-Afghanistan border linking Waziristan have been reported by several sources and fears are growing that anti-Pakistan TTP terrorists are also being rescued by their “foreign allies” from across the border.

"The unexplained movements of “un-marked” helicopters and aircraft have been reported since the last few days along the Pak-Afghan border and one source claimed that they were being transported to the Eastern Afghanistan.

"Some experts believe that secret allies of the friendly-Talibans took the action in order to secure the militants from an assault in South Waziristan by Pakistani Armed Forces while others believe the secret evacuation was part of a larger deal between some Western States and “good Taliban.”

"The airlifting and evacuation of TTP leaders from South Waziristan coincided with a report by foreign news media or a similar mysterious evacuation of “militants” from South Afghanistan to North Afghanistan.

"An Iranian news site on October 18 reported that the “British Army has been relocating Taliban insurgents from southern Afghanistan to the north by providing transportation means.”

"Quoting diplomats who spoke on condition of anonymity, the Iranian site claimed that insurgents are being airlifted from the southern province of Helmand to the north amid increasing violence in the northern parts of the country.

"The PressTV.com also claimed that “the aircraft used for the transfer have been identified as British Chinook helicopters.”

"The report suggested that the secret operation was being launched under the supervision of Afghan Interior Minister Mohammad Hanif Atmar, who “was still operating under the British guidance.”


"Last week Afghanistan’s Pajhwok news agency reported that “US ambassador scotched speculation that his country was helping terrorists in the north, saying America had nothing to do with the air-dropping of armed men from helicopters in Samangan, Baghlan and Kunduz provinces.”

"At an October 11 news conference in Kabul, President Hamid Karzai had himself claimed that “some unidentified helicopters dropped armed men in the northern provinces at night.”

"According to a Pajhowk news report President Karzai revealed “the government had been receiving evidence of the air-dropping of gunmen from mysterious helicopters in the provinces over the last five months.”

"A comprehensive investigation is underway to determine which country the helicopters belong to; why armed men are being infiltrated into the region; and whether increasing insecurity in the north is linked to it." http://www.pakobserver.net/200910/19/news/topstories16.asp

Mehsud, used by the CIA to get US troops into Pakistan?

Baithullah Mehsud, a 'deceased' tribal leader in Pakistan, may have links to the CIA. (Winter Patriot: Is Pakistan's "Public Enemy Number One" A CIA Asset ?. )

Pakistani officials have complained that the US failed to hit Mehsud with drone attacks despite them having supplied co-ordinates three times. (BBC NEWS South Asia Profile: Baitullah Mehsud )

CNN and other media sources reported the death of Baithullah Mehsud, on 30 September 2008.

His death was reportedly due to kidney failure.[33] (Sources: Man blamed for Bhutto killing is dead - CNN.com)

Mehsud of the CIA?

The Daily Mail (UK) reported on 31 March 2009 that Mehsud is now promising an attack on Washington:

The Taliban promises an attack on Washington that will 'amaze' the world ...

Mehsud, 'the top Taliban commander in Pakistan' has reportedly claimed responsibility for an attack on a police academy in Pakistan that left 18 dead.

"And Baitullah Mehsud also promised an assault on Washington 'soon' - one he said will 'amaze' the world."

WHO SELLS THE WEAPONS OF WAR?



The Angolan civil war lasted from 1975 to 2002.

The Communist MPLA and the anti-Communist UNITA were at war.

Angola is important because it is Africa's leading oil producer.

Between 1993 and 1998, $790 million in Soviet-made arms were sold to Angolan President Eduardo dos Santos's MPLA when it was fighting UNITA rebels.

This reportedly violated a United Nations arms embargo.

Charles Pasqua was interior minister under President Jacques Chirac in the 1990s.

In October 2009, Pasqua was sentenced to a year in prison, with a further two years suspended, for involvement in the 'arms-trafficking' to Angola's MPLA government in the 1990s. (Peering into the murk)

Jean-Christophe Mitterrand was fined for embezzlement and given a two-year suspended prison sentence.

Pierre Falcone, a French arms dealer, and Arkady Gaydamak, an Israeli-Russian businessman were sentenced to six years imprisonment.

The main arms dealer supplying Unita rebels was the Ukrainian Victor Bout

Scary Tales of Tiny Gambia Being the Headquarters of the Mafia World

By Bubacarr Ceesay

December 13, 2005

The Gambia is the international limelight again as the center of an international mafia ring.

In a masterpiece investigative report, The Wayne Madsen Report unraveled a network of weapons smugglers and mobsters operating in the heart of the Gambian Capital, working hand in hand with the Gambian leader, President Yahya Jammeh.

In reference to the Gambia, the report stated thus:

"There is also now interest in the activities of Richard T. Hines, the head of the powerful Republican lobbying firm RTH Consulting, Inc.

"Hines, a South Carolina native and a protege of the late GOP dirty trickmeister Lee Atwater, was one of the architects of the dirty tricks campaign by Bush against John McCain in the 2000 South Carolina primary.

"A confederate of Abramoff in the 1980s Reagan administration's covert support network for the Nicaraguan contras, Angolan UNITA guerrillas, and Afghan mujaheddin, Hines is active in various Confederacy resurgence organizations, many of which have clear racist agendas.

"However, that has not prevented Hines from becoming the lobbyist for Gambian dictator Yahya Jammeh, a military officer who overthrew Gambia's democratically-elected President Sir Dawda K. Jawara in a 1994 military coup supported by the United States Navy.

President Jammeh

"Hines inherited the lobbying contract for Gambia from the eclectic Washington lobbyist Edward von Kloberg III, an individual who represented Mobutu Sese Seko of Zaire, Liberia's Samuel K. Doe, Nicolae Ceausescu of Romania, Congolese leader Laurent Kabila, the exiled King Kigeli V of Rwanda, and Saddam Hussein.

"Last May, von Kloberg took a swan dive off of a castle in Rome, allegedly committing suicide after a spat with a gay partner.

"The connections between Hines and Gambia are important since the small narrow West African country is also a major base of operations for notorious Russian international arms smuggler Viktor Bout.

"The Gambia is the headquarters for one of many of Bout's front companies -- companies that are used to smuggle everything from weapons to diamonds and mercenaries to international relief supplies.

Bout, reportedly in a Bangkok jail since March 2008

"In fact, Bout was the character on whom fictional arms smuggler Yuri Orlov, played by Nicolas Cage in the movie Lord of War, was largely based.

"Bout's connections with the Christian Right do not end with Gambia.

"Bout was Liberian dictator Charles Taylor's primary arms and diamond smuggler.

"Bout and his associates were given Liberian diplomatic passports and, with Taylor's blessing and protection, they registered a number of their front companies in Monrovia, the Liberian capital.

"Taylor, who is now in exile in Nigeria, was a business partner with Christian Coalition founder Pat Robertson.

"Robertson's organization mentored both Ralph Reed and Richard Hines.


Pat Robertson

"According to British and Israeli intelligence sources, Taylor also enabled Al Qaeda to launder blood diamonds for cash through Liberia.

"Liberia and neighboring Sierra Leone were where Israeli mobsters engaged in business with Israeli gangsters who operated under the full protection of the Israeli Likud government.

"Before Likud began purging Mossad of experienced intelligence officers with ties to the Israeli Labor Party, the Israeli-Al Qaeda diamond financial connection in West Africa was being pointed out by those officers as suicidal for Israeli interests.

"However, Taylor and Bout had powerful interests in the United States: a combination of the Christian Right and pro-Likud organizations like the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), both of which ignored and continue to ignore Israeli organized crime connections to Al Qaeda and terrorism.

"Robertson and Taylor were business partners in a Cayman Islands front company called Freedom Gold, Ltd.

"In fact, Freedom Gold bas headquartered at Robertson's CBN offices in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Robertson's African interests also crossed paths with Bout's in another country -- the former Zaire.

"Robertson's African Development Company used the cover of Robertson's tax-exempt "Operation Blessing" to ferry conflict diamonds out of civil war-ravaged Zaire (now Congo).

"A UN Security Council report dated November 30, 2005, lists Bout's Gambia New Millennium Air Company as having its address at the residence of Hines' client Jammeh: State House, Banjul, Gambia.



"The UN report states, 'The Director of this firm is Baba Jobe, who is already listed on the Liberia Sanctions Committee's assets freeze list. According to a commercial aviation database, the firm acted as a cover for Victor Bout's operations. Its one aircraft, a Russian-made passenger jet, was acquired from Centrafrican Airlines.'

"It is noteworthy that Hines's client, President Jammeh, just took possession of the Russian-made VIP presidential passenger jet, an Ilyushin IL-62 (C5-GNM) [Gambia] (formerly CCCP-86511 [USSR], RA-86511 [Russia], 3D-RTI [Swaziland], TL-ACL [Central African Republic]).

"And also of interest is the owner of the presidential aircraft: it is none other than Gambia New Millennium Air, the Bout-owned company listed on the UN Security Council freeze list and which is headquartered at Jammeh's State House in Banjul, the Gambian capital.

"In fact, the plane had been previously registered to Bout front companies in Swaziland and the Central African Republic.

" Bout, who flew arms and passengers from Dubai and other locations to Taliban-controlled Afghanistan prior to 9-11, is now providing air services in post-Taliban Afghanistan as well as U.S.-occupied Iraq.

"Bout's transactions with the Taliban were handled by Vial, Inc., a firm based in Delaware.

"One of Bout's closest associates is the Russian-Israeli Odessa-born crime boss Leonid Minin, an Israeli national who, according to the UN Security Council, travels on forged German passports as well as legal Israeli, Russian, Greek, and Bolivian passports under at least ten aliases.

"It is also noteworthy that many of Bout's operations are based in Eastern European countries that have been mentioned in association with the rendition and transporting of CIA prisoners.

"Bout's numerous Russian-built cargo and passenger planes have been seen at the same airports used by CIA flights.


"For example, Bright Aviation, a suspected Bout front, is based at Sofia Airport in Bulgaria.

"Bulgaria is believed to be one of the countries used by the CIA to house secret prisoners.

"Another Bout front, Moldtransavia SRL, is based in Chisinau, Moldova, another suspected stopover point for CIA flights.

"One Chisinau, Moldova-based Bout front company, Aerocom, which also does business as Air Mero, is contracted to fly for Kellogg, Brown & Root in Iraq and elsewhere.

"Aerocom has also been cited in UN and DEA reports for being involved in drug smuggling in Belize.

"Some law enforcement officials in the United States and Europe believe that the covert flights being operated by CIA contractors and Bout's companies in support of secret prisoner movement are also involved in smuggling drugs.

"After being subjected to news reports, Aerocom quickly changed its name last year."

"Highly dependable sources in Banjul also informed AllGambian about recent arms purchase by the Jammeh regime from an undisclosed country, amounting to 4.3 million dalasis.

"This comes at the heels of a hard-hitting border impasse between the Gambia and Senegal.

"The stand-off almost paralyzed the Gambian economy and caused untold hardship on the average Gambian. Observers wondered how the Gambia gov can afford to spend on presidential jets and military hardware at this junction when the economy is in shambles."
