Lapdog Media Embrace Imperialists' "Blowback" theory

Yes Elvis bin Laden and al-CIA'duh were once with us, but then they went against us! 

According to FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds, the most gagged woman in U.S. history, the imperialists' blowback theory is more Grade-A U.S. Government bullshit. They were always partners and still are today. 

Quote:
 Former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds dropped a bombshell on the Mike Malloy radio show, guest-hosted by Brad Friedman (audio, partial transcript).
In the interview, Sibel says that the US maintained 'intimate relations' with Bin Laden, and the Taliban, "all the way until that day of September 11."

These 'intimate relations' included using Bin Laden for 'operations' in Central Asia, including Xinjiang, China. These 'operations' involved using al Qaeda and the Taliban in the same manner "as we did during the Afghan and Soviet conflict," that is, fighting 'enemies' via proxies.

As Sibel has previously described, and as she reiterates in this latest interview, this process involved using Turkey (with assistance from 'actors from Pakistan, and Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia') as a proxy, which in turn used Bin Laden and the Taliban and others as a proxy terrorist army.

Frontline, NYT, Maddow, 60 Min. all report CIA cover-up on 9/11 terrorists

Quote:

For some reason, most of the progressive blogs are deep-sixing the important news surrounding the publication of former FBI Special Agent Ali Soufan's new book, The Black Banners: The Inside Story of 9/11 and the War Against al-Qaeda. There are two crucial reasons to pay attention to this media event.

One: Soufan makes clear that his interrogations of Al Qaeda-suspected terrorists was interrupted multiple times by the CIA or Pentagon higher-ups in order to implement torture techniques as part of the interrogation, something that ultimately drove the FBI away from the interrogation scene at Guantanamo and elsewhere.

Two: Soufan makes clear that the CIA on multiple occasions blocked information on reaching him and other FBI agents relating to foreknowledge of Al Qaeda-suspected terrorists, including one involved in the USS Cole attack, entering the United States. Even more, they lied about informing the FBI about this, and they lied to the FBI about their even having knowledge of a major terrorist summit in Malyasia in 2000, where the 9/11 plot was presumably discussed.

Is The War on Terror a Hoax?

Where are have all the shoe, shampoo, and panty bombers gone? We are wide open to terrorist acts where many more people could be killed far more easily than occurred during the 9/11 Gladio extravaganza to launch 10 year's worth of glorious warfiteering, and yet where are they? Where are all the US Military-trained hijackers and terrorizers now?

Why are some of us just incapable of living in fear of the al-CIA'duh bogeyman? Apparently we lack faith.
