Britain’s Seven Covert Wars


Britain’s Seven Covert Wars

by Mark Curtis

Britain is fighting at least seven covert wars in the Middle East and North Africa, outside of any democratic oversight or control. Whitehall has in effect gone underground, with neither parliament nor the public being allowed to debate, scrutinise or even know about these wars. To cover themselves, Ministers are now often resorting to lying about what they are authorising. While Britain has identified Islamic State (among others) as the enemy abroad, it is clear that it sees the British public and parliament as the enemy at home.

Syria

Britain began training Syrian rebel forces from bases in Jordan in 2012. This was also when the SAS was reported to be ‘slipping into Syria on missions’ against Islamic State. Now, British special forces are ‘mountinghit and run raids against IS deep inside eastern Syria dressed as insurgent fighters’ and ‘frequently cross into Syria to assist the New Syrian Army’ from their base in Jordan. British special forces also provide training, weapons and other equipment to the New Syrian Army.

British aircraft began covert strikes against IS targets in Syria in 2015, months before Parliament voted in favour of overt action in December 2015. These strikes were conducted by British pilots embedded with US and Canadian forces.

Britain has also been operating a secret drone warfare programme in Syria. Last year Reaper drones killed British IS fighters in Syria, again before parliament approved military action. As I have previously argued, British covert action and support of the Syrian rebels is, along with horrific Syrian government/Russian violence, helping to prolong a terrible conflict.

Iraq

Hundreds of British troops are officially in Iraq to train local security forces. But they are also engaged in covert combat operations against IS. One recent report suggests that Britain has more than 200 special force soldiers in the country, operating out of a fortified base within a Kurdish Peshmerga camp south of Mosul.

British Reaper drones were first deployed over Iraq in 2014 and are now flown remotely by satellite from an RAF base in Lincolnshire. Britain has conducted over 200 drones strikes in Iraq since November 2014.

Libya

SAS forces have been secretly deployed to Libya since the beginning of this year, working with Jordanian special forces embedded in the British contingent. This follows a mission by MI6 and the RAF in January to gather intelligence on IS and draw up potential targets for air strikes. British commandos are now reportedly fighting and directing assaults on Libyan frontlines and running intelligence, surveillance and logistical support operations from a base in the western city of Misrata. <= ***which involves of AlQaeda, Isis and other Radical groups.

But a team of 15 British forces are also reported to be based in a French-led multinational military operations centre in Benghazi, eastern Libya, supporting renegade Libyan general Khalifa Haftar. In July 2016, Middle East Eye reported that this British involvement was helping to coordinate air strikes in support of Haftar, whose forces are opposed to the Tripoli-based government that Britain is supposed to be supporting.

Yemen

The government says it has no military personnel based in Yemen. Yet a report by Vice News in April, based on numerous interviews with officials, revealed that British special forces in Yemen, who were seconded to MI6, were training Yemeni troops fighting Al Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and also had forces infiltrated in AQAP. The same report also found that British military personnel were helping with drone strikes against AQAP. Britain was playing ‘a crucial and sustained role with the CIA in finding and fixing targets, assessing the effect of strikes, and training Yemeni intelligence agencies to locate and identify targets for the US drone program’. In addition, the UK spybase at Menwith Hill in Yorkshire facilitates US drone strikes in Yemen.

Britain has been widely reported (outside the mainstream media) as supporting the brutal Saudi war in Yemen, which has caused thousands of civilian deaths, most of them due to Saudi air strikes. Indeed, Britain is party to the war. The government says there are around 100 UK military personnel based in Saudi Arabia including a ‘small number’ at ‘Saudi MOD and Operational Centres’. One such Centre, in Riyadh, coordinates the Saudi bombing campaign in Yemen and includes British military personnel who are in the command room as air strikes are carried out and who have access to the bombing targets.

The UK is of course arming the Saudi campaign: The British government disclosed on 13 October that the Saudis have used five types of British bombs and missiles in Yemen. On the same day, it lied to Parliament that Britain was ‘not a party’ to the war in Yemen.

A secretmemorandum of understanding’ that Britain signed with Saudi Arabia in 2014 has not been made public since it ‘would damage the UK’s bilateral relationship’ with the Kingdom, the government states. It is likely that this pact includes reference to the secret British training of Syrian rebels in Saudi Arabia, which has taken place since mid-2015. Operating from a desert base in the north of the country, British forces have been teaching Syrian forces infantry skills as part of a US-led training programme.

Afghanistan

In Afghanistan, the public was told that British forces withdrew at the end of 2014. However, British forces stayed behind to help create and train an Afghan special forces unit. Despite officially only having ‘advisors’ in Afghanistan, in August 2015 it was reported that British covert forces were fighting IS and Taliban fighters. The SAS and SBS, along with US special forces, were ‘taking part in military operations almost every night’ as the insurgents closed in on the capital Kabul.

In 2014, the government stated that it had ended its drone air strikes programme in Afghanistan, which had begun in 2008 and covered much of the country. Yet last year it was reported that British special forces were calling in air strikes using US drones.

Pakistan and Somalia

Pakistan and Somalia are two other countries where Britain is conducting covert wars. Menwith Hill facilitates US drone strikes against jihadists in both countries, with Britain’s GCHQ providinglocational intelligence’ to US forces for use in these attacks.

The government has said that it has 27 military personnel in Somalia who are developing the national army and supporting the African Union Mission. Yet in 2012 it was reported that the SAS was covertly fighting against al-Shabab Islamist terrorists in Somalia, working with Kenyan forces in order to target leaders. This involved up to 60 SAS soldiers, close to a full squadron, including Forward Air Controllers who called in air strikes against al-Shabab targets by the Kenyan air force. In early 2016, it was further reported that Jordan’s King Abdullah, whose troops operate with UK special forces, was saying that his troops were ready with Britain and Kenya to go ‘over the border’ to attack al-Shabaab.

Drones

The RAF’s secret drone war, which involves a fleet of 10 Reaper drones, has been in permanent operation in Afghanistan since October 2007, but covertly began operating outside Afghanistan in 2014. The NGO Reprieve notes that Britain provides communications networks to the CIA ‘without which the US would not be able to operate this programme’. It says that this is a particular matter of concern as the US covert drone programme is illegal.

The Gulf

Even this may not be the sum total of British covert operations in the region. The government stated in 2015 that it had 177 military personnel embedded in other countries’ forces, with 30 personnel working with the US military. It is possible that these forces are also engaged in combat in the region. For example, the First Sea Lord, Admiral Sir Philip Jones, has said that in the Gulf, British pilots fly US F18s from the decks of US aircraft carriers. This means that ‘US’ air strikes might well be carried out by British pilots.

Britain has many other military and intelligence assets in the region. Files leaked by Edward Snowden show that Britain has a network of three GCHQ spy bases in Oman – codenamed ‘Timpani’, ‘Guitar’ and ‘Clarinet’ – which tap in to various undersea cables passing through the Strait of Hormuz into the Gulf. These bases intercept and process vast quantities of emails, telephone calls and web traffic on behalf of Western intelligence agencies, which information is then shared with the National Security Agency in the US.

The state of Qatar houses the anti-IS coalition’s Combined Air Operations Centre at Al Udeid airbase. The government says it has seven military personnel ‘permanently assigned to Qatar’ and an additional number of ‘temporary personnel’ working at the airbase. These are likely to be covert forces; the government says that ‘we do not discuss specific numbers for reasons of safeguarding operational security’.

Similarly, the government says it has six military personnel ‘permanently assigned’ to the United Arab Emirates and an additional number of ‘temporary personnel’ at the UAE’s Al Minhad airbase. Britain also has military assets at Manama harbour, Bahrain, whose repressive armed forces are also being secretly trained by British commandos.

Kenya and Turkey

Kenya hosts Britain’s Kahawa Garrishon barracks and Laikipia Air Base, from where thousands of troops who carry out military exercises in Kenya’s harsh terrain can be deployed on active operations in the Middle East. Turkey has also offered a base for British military training. In 2015, for example, Britain deployed several military trainers to Turkey as part of the US-led training programme in Syria, providing small arms, infantry tactics and medical training to rebel forces.

The web of deceit

When questioned about these covert activities, Ministers have two responses. One is to not to comment on special forces’ operations. The other is to lie, which has become so routine as to be official government policy. The reasoning is simple – the government believes the public simply has no right to know of these operations, let alone to influence them.

Defence Secretary Michael Fallon told parliament in July that the government is ‘committed to the convention that before troops are committed to combat the House of Commons should have an opportunity to debate the matter’. This is plainly not true, as the extent of British covert operations show.

Similarly, it was first reported in May that British troops were secretly engaged in combat in Libya. This news came two days after Fallon told MPs that Britain was not planning ‘any kind of combat role’ to fight IS in Libya.

There are many other examples of this straightforward web of deceit. In July 2016, the government issued six separate corrections to previous ministerial statements in which they claimed that Saudi Arabia is not targeting civilians or committing war crimes in Yemen. However, little noticed was that these corrections also claimed that ‘the UK is not a party’ to the conflict in Yemen. This claim is defied by various news reports in the public domain.

British foreign policy is in extreme mode, whereby Ministers do not believe they should be accountable to the public. This is the very definition of dictatorship. Although in some of these wars, Britain is combatting terrorist forces that are little short of evil, it is no minor matter that several UK interventions have encouraged these very same forces and prolonged wars, all the while being regularly disastrous for the people of the region. Britain’s absence of democracy needs serious and urgent challenging.

10 THINGS YOU DID NOT KNOW ABOUT BRITISH SOLDIERS


10 THINGS YOU DID NOT KNOW ABOUT BRITISH SOLDIERS

BY LADY KHAMIS

Britain is one of the biggest rogue terror states in the world – it is the key ally of both America and ‘israel’ in their continual foreign adventures of colonialism and control of the planet and its resources. Along with France, it is the biggest military spender in the whole of Europe.

In the run-up to and in the earlier years of the catastrophe of the Iraq war, every opinion poll showed that the British people did not like their own soldiers. They did not just disapprove of the actions they took. Around 70% of British citizens did not like the British Army itself. But all that was about to change…

The British government regime decided that for the purpose of, at least, trying to improve foreign policy perception, they had to embark on a course of action to subvert the average Briton’s way of thinking about their army.

Today, the same numbers of people still disapprove of British foreign policy. They mostly hate the wars. They mostly know that they are lied to. They will protest as much as ever. But something important has now changed. Around 70% of Britons – allegedly – now support the actual soldiers.

How was this remarkable change of opinion achieved? By a massive secret government subversion campaign – via a massive media indoctrination of Britons.

Several years ago, a new covert policy was formed to encourage people to disassociate the soldiers from their crimes. That it was ‘not their fault’ and that ‘they are victims too’. The soldiers had to be seen as ‘heroes’. Indeed, a charity called ‘Help for Heroes’ was set up. But I could not find anything that was created for the ignored and forgotten victims of the crimes committed by these soldiers. Instead, we have the constant mantra that they are ‘just doing their job’ and that ‘other people sent them there’.

Well, if I was hired to kill my neighbour’s family for the false flag of doing ‘greater good’, and I told my neighbour ‘sorry mate, just doing what I was told to do’, would my neighbour understand? I don’t think so.

Soldiers are also branded ‘heroes’ for all those IED’s they regularly removed from the roads of Afghanistan. Unfortunately, the British public is largely too dumb to realise that if it were not for the presence of these troops in the first place, there would be no IED’s littering the streets of Afghanistan…

Too many Britons do not want to face the truth and prefer to live in a safe, jingoistic little bubble. They want to believe that their army – as well as their country and ‘royal’ family – are entities of which they can be proud.

The media took advantage of this and dutifully put into place a programme of brainwashing, which appears endlessly on our televisions and in our newspapers.

Soldiers became willing participants in this façade. They are recruited to give talks to the unemployed. They are recruited to go into schools and brainwash the young. Some are even re-trained as teachers.

Looking at a British television guide, it is virtually impossible now to find a day of programmes that do not feature a soldier taking part in a reality TV show – or doing cookery, gardening, singing, or even skating on TV… Getting them into sports and holding games tournaments is now the big wheeze.

The militarised, so-called ‘royal family’ also willingly avail themselves for being a prime weapon of subversion of their ‘subjects’. Harold Windsor – the so-called ‘Prince Harry’ – is rarely off our TV screens, yet he a dangerous, childish, vile mass murderer and a supreme psychopath. He regularly laughs at the people he has killed during his time as an army pilot in Afghanistan, when operating, what he so charmingly calls, his “video kill” missions. Indeed, his unit had the highest “kill rate”…

He is also an imposter. His family are foreigners whose real name is Saxe Coburg-Gotha. It was changed to Windsor to successfully delude the British public into forgetting that they are illegitimate usurpers to the throne.

He is also a radicalised extremist and a colonialist US agent nutcase.

But it is people who criticise British soldiers who are now branded as suspected traitors and ‘extremists’.

A 2013 survey showed that 1 in 5 British soldiers had been refused service in a bar or hotel during their ‘career’ – because of fears they would cause trouble. The political Labour party is calling for this type of refusal to be made a criminal offence. Already, anyone doing this now finds themselves on the front page of the newspapers. People are taught that it is both anti-social and bad to be anti-soldier.

Worse still, the British regime is now determined to bring in a new law in the next parliament – to make it a criminal offence to dare to criticise or abuse British soldiers in any way.

In other words, the dictatorial regime of suppression will make sure that they and their soldiers’ crimes will not be reported, commented, or reacted upon.

So readers, before I get arrested, here are 10 things that you will not know about British soldiers – (especially if you are British)…

  1. PLANTING CAR BOMBS TO KILL CIVILIANS AND TO FRAME ‘TERRORISTS’:

During the Iraq war, two undercover British soldiers were arrested in Basra in 2005 – disguised in Arab dress, wearing false beards and acting as ‘sectarian extremists’…

They were carrying guns and shooting at the locals and Iraqi police – after being stopped at a checkpoint… Two police officers died…

Later, to try and free the two soldiers, a prison – the al-Jamiat police station – was attacked by British soldiers. It was an event that became an infamous siege in Basra… 150 prisoners escaped…

Five civilians in the Iraqi crowd demonstrating outside the jail against the British actions were killed. (Both the police and civilian death totals are higher than in the reports of others as I am including those who died later in hospital from their wounds, as recorded in the notes that I made from multiple media sources at the time).

In 2006 – on Christmas Day – no less than 1,000 British troops again stormed the same station – killing seven people and then blowing up the building…. 127 inmates escaped. The soldiers upset the locals, trashed any vehicle they could find, and, once again, the local council called the operation “an illegal and provocative act”.

Clearly still in festive spirit, the troops then gleefully announced that they were going to spend Boxing Day going on a ‘rat hunt’ (not of the small, furry kind)…

But why had the two soldiers – who were from the SAS – been arrested in the original incident of 2005? And what had they really been doing in Iraq? The truth was never revealed to the British public by the Western media.

In fact, the vehicle the British soldiers were found cruising around in was also a car bomb – and they were about to explode it…

The two had been busy planting car bombs in Basra…

So who really were the Arab ‘terrorists’ causing trouble in some of the incidents in Iraq? Next time you hear on the news about a car bomb in Iraq, ask yourself who might really have set it off? Who is really doing some of the blowing up of the Arab world? Even Sheikh Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was rumoured to have been set up for some things he did not do…

Iraqi officials insist that many of the bombings carried out against civilians in Iraq were actually committed by British and American forces… These acts go as far back to at least spring, 2004…

A string of car bombings in Baghdad that year were also widely rumoured to have been committed by the CIA…

Many ‘suicide’ bombings were, in fact, remotely exploded or bombs controlled by a timer…

Evidence had already emerged in 2002 that the British Army had been planting double agents in terrorist organisations – in order to carry out proxy assassinations and terror attacks on behalf of the British state…

This included the revelation that a British soldier had been one of the members of the IRA cell that committed the Omagh bombing in 1998 – killing 29 civilians. The police had also known the bombing was going to happen but did nothing.

What happened in Iraq was a reactivation of these same terror tactics.

  1. DELIBERATELY PROVOKING ENEMIES INTO COMMITTING ATTACKS:

In Afghanistan, the British Army operates a covert, actual army policy of deliberately provoking the Taliban into attacks. British soldiers actually commit pre-planned operations where they go out from their bases and provoke the Taliban into attacking them.

This again shows the true violent nature of the army’s own policies and shows that they set out to purposefully foment violence, put civilians at enormous risk and cause chaos, unrest, and unnecessary death in other peoples’ sovereign states.

Like most things here, this story was little covered by the media.

  1. USING REPLICA MOSQUES FOR TARGET PRACTICE:

In 2010, it was reported that the British Army had a base in the town of Catterick in the UK, shockingly using seven replicas of Muslim mosques – as firing ranges and target practice for soldiers…

This outrageous act shows the true demeanour and agenda of these soldiers and their bosses. Complaints from Muslims finally saw the removal of these replica mosques and an end to this atrocity.

  1. GUN-RUNNING:

The British Army was gun-running in secret missions in Iraq. 2,000 AK-47’s were flown from a secret weapons store in Baghdad to the northern city of Kirkuk. They were then handed on to the Americans and given to a large private Iraqi army force – led by a British company guarding the oil in Iraq!

Journalists who had cottoned on to the story were told “not to ask too many questions” about it…

These weapons – which, I believe originated from the Balkans – were also hugely inferior to those used by the British and Americans themselves…

Gun-running – especially when secretly being used to arm ‘insurgents’ – is usually described as weapons going ‘missing’ or having been ‘lost’. British soldiers ‘lost’ a huge cache of guns in Afghanistan.

In Iraq in September 2006, British soldiers were at the centre of an investigation after being caught illegally smuggling stolen guns out of the country – in exchange for cocaine…

  1. LETTING THE DRUG TRADE FLOURISH:

The British Army did nothing about the cultivation of poppies for the making of heroin that was going on right outside their own base, ‘Camp Bastard Bastion’, in Afghanistan.

A main reason for the war was that the Taliban had virtually stamped out all drug production in the country, as it is against Islam. America’s CIA had lost their drug profits so it was time to act…

(Indeed, the half-brother of the US puppet and former post-Taliban ‘President’ Hamed Karzai, Ahmed Wali Karzai, was a well-known CIA-backed drug lord in Afghanistan – until he was mysteriously shot dead in 2011 in his own home by his long-time trusted Head of Security)… 

  1. CRUELTY TO ANIMALS:

In 2007, Honey Badgers were seen in the proximity of the British Army base in Basra, Iraq – sparking rumours among the local residents that the British forces had deliberately released “man-eating” and “bear-like” badgers – in order to cause panic…

Under any normal circumstances, badgers are not found in the Arab world…

Badgers are a gentle enough wild animal and a protected species in Britain – and a special licence would be needed to kill them. But as always, it is another law for the army…

Also in Iraq, British soldiers deliberately mowed down and killed a donkey – using a tank to do so…

Every year the British Army put down around 100 of their own brave army dogs – for no other reason than they cannot be bothered to look after them, pay for them, or even try and re-home them.

During training, EVERY soldier has to break the necks of rabbits as part of the brutal army’s training regime. Now, that is an awful lot of rabbits being horrifically mistreated… In civilian life, you are likely to get a jail sentence for such cruelty.

The British regime’s Ministry of Defence has a secret training base in Denmark where live pigs are used for target practice. They are shot with real bullets and those that do not die are kept alive for study – and then killed anyway. They would not be able to get away with this in Britain – where we are known as an animal-loving country – so the operation was moved abroad.

  1. LACK OF INTELLIGENCE:

39% of adult British soldiers that are recruited have the reading ability of an 11-year-old child – or worse.

38% can only do mathematics aimed at pupils aged 11 – which is the last year of primary school!

The British Army continually castigates its foreign enemies for recruiting children to fight – but 28% of British Army recruits are under 18 years of age…

  1. VIOLENT MENTALITY:

The criminal acts committed against civilians in Iraq by British soldiers are so commonplace that it would take a whole book to write about them. But here are a couple that I have chosen at random:

In 2003, seven British soldiers attacked seven unarmed villagers for no reason. The civilians were pulled out of their car and beaten by the soldiers – who used their rifle butts, helmets, fists and feet. One victim, Nadhem Abdullah, died from a brain haemorrhage next day – he was just 18 years of age. One man was knocked out, a pregnant woman was also attacked, and another woman – who had given birth only three days before – was struck in the face. A dog barking nearby was also shot dead – before they departed the scene clapping and laughing…

The victims received no justice – successful convictions against British soldiers in their own military courts are almost impossible, due to the regime being so heavily weighed in their favour.

In 2006, the Arab world was shocked by the release of a video from 2004, showing teenage civilians in al-Amarah being dragged by British soldiers into a courtyard – and then brutally beaten as they screamed for mercy. One became unconscious. Disturbingly, a vast number of soldiers walked in during the attacks – but not one did anything to try and stop it.

It nailed the myth that ‘only a few rogue elements’ exist in the British Army…

The video also showed a dead Iraqi being kicked in the head…

But it is not just countries experiencing war that feel the wrath of British troops…

Thousands of British soldiers train in British Ministry of Defence bases in Kenya – before going to Afghanistan. In April 2012, 200 British soldiers destroyed a bar in a mass brawl in Kenya. In another incident, they murdered a 21-year-old woman – despite no military war action going on in that country. In yet another incident, a soldier shot dead a civilian – during a training exercise.

Kenyan locals regularly find they have cause to complain about the conduct of British soldiers – whom they call ‘Johnnies’ – most particularly about their behaviour and attitude.

The same is true in Cyprus where soldiers are also stationed; despite no military war action going on there either.

In Cyprus in 1994, three British soldiers kidnapped, raped and murdered a young Danish tour guide. They bludgeoned her to death with a spade and said afterwards that it was because they had “wanted a woman”…

There are regular demonstrations against the soldiers for being there – but the arrogant British government does not give a damn.

In Norway in 2008, British soldiers stripped naked in a bar and urinated on the locals.

One witness said that Norwegians had found British soldiers to have a “nasty edge” to them that makes them unpalatable to have around.

  1. MURDERS AND OTHER CRIMINAL ACTS CONTINUE AFTER ARRIVING HOME:

A staggering total of more than 100,000 British soldiers passed through police custody in 2011…

In March 2013, a study showed British soldiers are more than three times more likely to commit violent crime than their civilian counterparts. Violent offending is particular common among men under 30-years-old from the lower ranks. Of nearly 3,000 men aged under 30, and who had been in the army, nearly 20.6 per cent have a conviction for violence. (This compares to only 6.7 per cent of the same age group amongst ordinary civilians).

The report also found that the more war they were involved in, the far higher the chance of them committing violence back home. Indeed, those with multiple combat experience are 70-80 per cent more likely to commit acts of violence after arriving back home.

But the study also acknowledged that people who choose to join the British army are likely to have a more aggressive nature in the first place than the average person…

In a separate study, one in eight British soldiers admitted attacking someone after they had come home from Iraq or Afghanistan. (As it is by their own admittance, the true figure is likely to be considerably higher).

The British government regime fiddles official statistics on soldier convictions (just as they fiddle all crime figures and other statistics, such as unemployment, health etc). It is believed that the true number of ex-British soldiers in custody is 10 per cent of the entire prison population – which is three times higher than the regime claims of just 3 to 4 per cent…

The head of the British Army from 2006 until 2009, Richard Dannatt, later surprisingly admitted that there is a real problem with British soldiers in their attitude because many come from “chaotic backgrounds” – and there are problems in getting them to understand how civilians should be treated…

Too many of these soldiers had not been exposed to traditional values and they had a lack of respect, he said, at a ‘Royal United Services Institute’ event in London.

  1. THE PSYCHOPATH STUDY:

In the early years of the Iraq war, an extraordinary one-hour programme was broadcast on British television’s Channel 4. It conducted remarkable research to see if British soldiers were psychotic. Its findings concluded that, almost with no exception, British soldiers are “psychopaths”…

This programme was never repeated. Due to the current climate, it is doubtful that such a programme will ever be devised again – and certainly would not be commissioned now.

Sadly, many Britons think any young man involved in anti-social behaviour should be forced to join the army so that they can get some ‘discipline’.

Unfortunately, all this would do is complete the journey of turning a hoodlum into a fully-fledged psycho…

Help for ‘Heroes’? Help for Brit Shits!

U.S.A.Why.We.Fight

 

BBC documentary 2005
Why We Fight describes the rise and maintenance of the United States military–industrial complex and its 50-year involvement with the wars led by the United States to date, especially its 2003 Invasion of Iraq. The documentary asserts that in every decade since World War II, the American public was misled so that the government (incumbent Administration) could take them to war and fuel the military-industrial economy maintaining American political dominance in the world. Interviewed about this matter, are politician John McCain,****(the idiot who’s in bed with Al Qaeda and all the extremists, low life scums) political scientist and former CIA analyst Chalmers Johnson, politician Richard Perle, neoconservative commentator William Kristol, writer Gore Vidal, and public policy expert Joseph Cirincione.
Why We Fight documents the consequences of said foreign policy with the stories of a Vietnam War veteran whose son was killed in the September 11, 2001 attacks, and who then asked the military to write the name of his dead son on any bomb to be dropped in Iraq; and that of a 23-year-old New Yorker who enlists in the United States Army because he was poor and in debt, his decision impelled by his mother’s death; and a female military explosives scientist (Anh Duong) who arrived in the U.S. as a refugee child from Vietnam in 1975.

LUNCH WITH THE FT – AL QAEDA’S GENERAL MANAGER, NASSER AL WUHAYSHI

I meet the General Manager of al QaedaNasser Wuhayshi, at a restaurant in Souq Waqif in Doha.

We order ‪.٢‬فحسة : المكونات ( لحم مبشور مع بهارات يمنية‪(‬

Nasser (alias Abu Basir) comes from Yemen and is apparently Jewish.

Yemeni Jews.

Nasser tells me that, in Yemen, the local population converted to Judaism at some point in the late fourth century.

Nasser is the boss of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP)

Nasser explains that he once served as Osama bin Laden‘s secretary.

Al Qaeda’s plan is to weaken all Muslim countries by splitting them up.

One of Nasser’s CIA body guards brings to our table a bottle of Yarden wine, which comes from Israel’s vineyards on Mount Hermon.

As we eat our meal of meat, egg, rice and potato, I ask Nasser about al Qaeda’s plans for the future.

“We aim to split up all the Muslim countries,” says a smiling Nasser. “Libya is already split up. 

“Syria will soon have a Sunni state, an Alawite state, a Kurd state anda Druze city state.

“Iraq will have a Shit state and a Turd state.”

Al Qaeda’s plan is to weaken all Muslim countries, including Syria and Iraq, by splitting them up

I ask Nasser about the Arab Spring.

The point about the Arab Spring was that it allowed the CIA, Mossad and MI6 to get rid of the leaders in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia and Yemen who had resisted al-Qaeda.”

Al Qaeda’s plan is to weaken all Muslim countries, including Saudi Arabia, by splitting them up.

Nasser continues: “We are working with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Our aim is to break up Egypt.

We control almost all the rebels in Syria.

We are continuing to break up Iraq.

“Nearly a thousand civilians have been killed in Iraq in the last few months.”

Al Qaeda’s home base in Langley.

As we finish our salad of cucumber mixed with buttermilk, I raise the question of the ‘caliphate’.

“This is one of our objectives,” says Nasser, “to pretend that we’re fighting for a caliphate.

This helps us to recruit mad young fools from around the world.”

Brennan of the CIA, pretending to be a waitress.

I suggest that al Qaeda’s aim is to destroy the Muslim world.

“Exactly,” says Nasser. “We are creating an ‘arc of instability’ across the Sahara and the Sahel. We are causing chaos in Nigeria, Kenya, Somalia, Mali and elsewhere.

“Who gains? Israel and its friends.”

Zawahiri, crypto-Jew

I ask Nasser about Pakistan.

“Our main bases are still in places such as Langley, Tel Aviv and London. 

“However, we have bases of course in North Waziristan.”

Finally, I ask Nasser about reports that he is in fact dead.

“Yemeni military officials reported that I was killed in 2011. But, you must remember that all the guys who work for the CIA have their body doubles.”
