Just when you thought Islamic State #ISIS #ISIL #IS was an evil, Shi’ite invention: 2012 Defense Intelligence Agency document: West will facilitate rise of Islamic State “in order to isolate the Syrian regime”

July 18, 2015

See http://levantreport.com/2015/05/19/2012-defense-intelligence-agency-document-west-will-facilitate-rise-of-islamic-state-in-order-to-isolate-the-syrian-regime/

On Monday, May 18, the conservative government watchdog group Judicial Watch published a selection of formerly classified documents obtained from the U.S. Department of Defense and State Department through a federal lawsuit.

While initial mainstream media reporting is focused on the White House’s handling of the Benghazi consulate attack, a much “bigger picture” admission and confirmation is contained in one of the Defense Intelligence Agency documents circulated in 2012: that an ‘Islamic State’ is desired in Eastern Syria to effect the West’s policies in the region.

Astoundingly, the newly declassified report states that for “THE WEST, GULF COUNTRIES, AND TURKEY [WHO] SUPPORT THE [SYRIAN] OPPOSITION… THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY OF ESTABLISHING A DECLARED OR UNDECLARED SALAFIST PRINCIPALITY IN EASTERN SYRIA (HASAKA AND DER ZOR), AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THE SUPPORTING POWERS TO THE OPPOSITION WANT, IN ORDER TO ISOLATE THE SYRIAN REGIME…”.

The DIA report, formerly classified “SECRET//NOFORN” and dated August 12, 2012, was circulated widely among various government agencies, including CENTCOM, the CIA, FBI, DHS, NGA, State Dept., and many others.

The document shows that as early as 2012, U.S. intelligence predicted the rise of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS), but instead of clearly delineating the group as an enemy, the report envisions the terror group as a U.S. strategic asset.

While a number of analysts and journalists have documented long ago the role of western intelligence agencies in the formation and training of the armed opposition in Syria, this is the highest level internal U.S. intelligence confirmation of the theory that western governments fundamentally see ISIS as their own tool for regime change in Syria. The document matter-of-factly states just that scenario.

Forensic evidence, video evidence, as well as recent admissions of high-level officials involved (see former Ambassador to Syria Robert Ford’s admissions here and here), have since proven the State Department and CIA’s material support of ISIS terrorists on the Syrian battlefield going back to at least 2012 and 2013 (for a clear example of “forensic evidence”: see UK-based Conflict Armament Research’s report which traced the origins of Croatian anti-tank rockets recovered from ISIS fighters back to a Saudi/CIA joint program via identifiable serial numbers).

The newly released DIA report makes the following summary points concerning “ISI” (in 2012 “Islamic State in Iraq,”) and the soon to emerge ISIS:

  • Al-Qaeda drives the opposition in Syria
  • The West identifies with the opposition
  • The establishment of a nascent Islamic State became a reality only with the rise of the Syrian insurgency (there is no mention of U.S. troop withdrawal from Iraq as a catalyst for Islamic State’s rise, which is the contention of innumerable politicians and pundits; see section 4.D. below)
  • The establishment of a “Salafist Principality” in Eastern Syria is “exactly” what the external powers  supporting the opposition want (identified as “the West, Gulf Countries, and Turkey”) in order to weaken the Assad government
  • “Safe havens” are suggested in areas conquered by Islamic insurgents along the lines of the Libyan model (which translates to so-called no-fly zones as a first act of ‘humanitarian war’; see 7.B.)
  • Iraq is identified with “Shia expansion” (8.C)
  • A Sunni “Islamic State” could be devastating to “unifying Iraq” and could lead to “the renewing facilitation of terrorist elements from all over the Arab world entering into Iraqi Arena.” (see last non-redacted line in full PDF view.)

The following is excerpted from the seven page DIA declassified report (bold-facing is my own):

R 050839Z AUG 12

THE GENERAL SITUATION:

A. INTERNALLY, EVENTS ARE TAKING A CLEAR SECTARIAN DIRECTION.

B. THE SALAFIST [sic], THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD, AND AQI ARE THE MAJOR FORCES DRIVING THE INSURGENCY IN SYRIA.

C. THE WEST, GULF COUNTRIES, AND TURKEY SUPPORT THE OPPOSITION; WHILE RUSSIA, CHINA AND IRAN SUPPORT THE REGIME.

3. (C) Al QAEDA – IRAQ (AQI):… B. AQI SUPPORTED THE SYRIAN OPPOSITION FROM THE BEGINNING, BOTH IDEOLOGICALLY AND THROUGH THE MEDIA

4.D. THERE WAS A REGRESSION OF AQI IN THE WESTERN PROVINCES OF IRAQ DURING THE YEARS OF 2009 AND 2010; HOWEVER, AFTER THE RISE OF THE INSURGENCY IN SYRIA, THE RELIGIOUS AND TRIBAL POWERS IN THE REGIONS BEGAN TO SYMPATHIZE WITH THE SECTARIAN UPRISING. THIS (SYMPATHY) APPEARED IN FRIDAY PRAYER SERMONS, WHICH CALLED FOR VOLUNTEERS TO SUPPORT THE SUNNI’S [sic] IN SYRIA.

7. (C) THE FUTURE ASSUMPTIONS OF THE CRISIS:

A. THE REGIME WILL SURVIVE AND HAVE CONTROL OVER SYRIAN TERRITORY.

B. DEVELOPMENT OF THE CURRENT EVENTS INTO PROXY WAR: …OPPOSITION FORCES ARE TRYING TO CONTROL THE EASTERN AREAS (HASAKA AND DER ZOR), ADJACENT TO THE WESTERN IRAQI PROVINCES (MOSUL AND ANBAR), IN ADDITION TO NEIGHBORING TURKISH BORDERS. WESTERN COUNTRIES, THE GULF STATES AND TURKEY ARE SUPPORTING THESE EFFORTS. THIS HYPOTHESIS IS MOST LIKELY IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE DATA FROM RECENT EVENTS, WHICH WILL HELP PREPARE SAFE HAVENS UNDER INTERNATIONAL SHELTERING, SIMILAR TO WHAT TRANSPIRED IN LIBYA WHEN BENGHAZI WAS CHOSEN AS THE COMMAND CENTER OF THE TEMPORARY GOVERNMENT.

8.C. IF THE SITUATION UNRAVELS THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY OF ESTABLISHING A DECLARED OR UNDECLARED SALAFIST PRINCIPALITY IN EASTERN SYRIA (HASAKA AND DER ZOR), AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THE SUPPORTING POWERS TO THE OPPOSITION WANT, IN ORDER TO ISOLATE THE SYRIAN REGIME, WHICH IS CONSIDERED THE STRATEGIC DEPTH OF THE SHIA EXPANSION (IRAQ AND IRAN)

8.D.1. …ISI COULD ALSO DECLARE AN ISLAMIC STATE THROUGH ITS UNION WITH OTHER TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS IN IRAQ AND SYRIA, WHICH WILL CREATE GRAVE DANGER IN REGARDS TO UNIFYING IRAQ AND THE PROTECTION OF ITS TERRITORY.


HUMANITY vs INSANITY The modern Greek Tragedy : http://youtu.be/Rk3o5XY8if8 #greece #grexit

July 17, 2015

Yanis Varoufakis is being hailed by many as the visionary to bring about an end to austerity and take Greece out of the Euro … but what if his true purpose was to bring about the total financial annihilation of the Greek nation? William Engdahl shares his insights into the unfolding 21st Century Greek tragedy, suggesting that Varoufakis may have ‘Master-Minded’ an End Game resulting in the ultimate treason! What will it take to end the insanity and bring about the demise of the Socio-psychopathic Global Corporatists?  Have a look at: http://youtu.be/Rk3o5XY8if8

I’m a great believer in William Engdahl as he sees through a lot of trees and sees the wood.  So, we are told that Greece has overspent and has to repay its debts.  Right?  Greece is no different from me and my mortgage is it?  If I don’t make my repayments they can repossess my place, so I have to cut back and spend less.  This massive over-simplification is something that has been presented to us as fact because we can relate to it.

Here is an alternative view:

1.  Greece owes 323 billion Euros and has to pay it back to the creditors who are mostly banks; 246 billion Euros is owed to the international baleout funds, ie, banks.

2.  In 2008, those same banks were saved from collapse by baleouts (to allow them to repay money they had borrowed from other banks) as follows:

Citigroup                $2513 billion (more than the GDP of the USA, incidentally)

Morgan Stanley     $2041 billion

Merrill Lynch          $1949 billion

Bank of America    $1343 billion

Bear Stearns         $853 billion

Goldman Sachs     $814 billion

….the list goes on.  In the EU here are a few more:

Barclays                $868 billion

RBS                      $541 billion

Deutsche Bank     $354 billion

…and this list goes on.  Note that the German bank received a free baleout of greater than the money that the IMF and ECB refuse to allow Greece.  So  Greece and its people have to suffer more austerity.  What is behind this game?

Well, let’s see.  The European Commission has always wanted fiscal union across the Eurozone because it is a given that the Euro will never work properly without it.  The European Parliament will not allow this so we have a massive mismatch between the competent economies of northern Europe and the incompetence of the garlic belt.  Therefore the Eurozone will always be a catastrophe…

…unless…

…an example is made of one of those countries that doesn’t matter so much.  As Napoléon said, ‘pour encourager les autres…’  How about Greece?  Inefficient, corrupt, lazy, incompetent and economically small.  What a perfect illustration that the present system cannot be sustained.  Now, who can we put in place to engineer this?  How about poster boy Yanis Varoufakis?  The cameras love him, the people love him, he says it like it is.  Well, he and his party were voted in to end austerity.  This had to be stopped because without austerity there can be no example set. So the game was set.  Threats of Greek Euro exit, referenda and we are where we are now.  The Greeks made their choice looking down the barrel of a gun.  More austerity has been agreed. Greek assets have been pawned as part of the deal to be managed by the banks.  Greece has been defeated and humiliated.  Starve or leave.  Their fight is over.

Varoufakis has already left the stage, of course.

Yanis Varoufakiss is an academic, a mathematician and economist whose  specialisation was game theory.  This embraces strategy good enough for complex computer games and he worked for one of the largest of those companies.  So, think of the players, the bankers, the politicians, the people.  Who has won this game?  The ones who always win, of course.

Oh, and one other thing.  Varoufakis’s party, Syriza, is apparently funded by George Soros.
