“All video messages and other messages by Bin Laden do not belong,” said Heydar Jemal, Chairman of the Islamic Committee of Russia. - This is a theatrical production. Anyone who knows what hand a faithful Muslim can take with him will immediately suspect a trick. ”
"The totality of lies"
The last, so to speak, living testimony of the existence of Al-Qaida, tragicomic, was the 2012 process of the year, which took place in New York over bin Laden’s son-in-law who was unknown from now on and part-time his former press secretary. The question is whether people who the United States now ranks as Al-Qaeda — in Mali, then in Iraq, or in Morocco — are they related to an organization created by bin Laden?
“If you and a couple of your friends are sitting somewhere at the table,” writes the Asia Times newspaper, “if you are angry and unhappy with America or your government, you can simply declare that you are a supporter of the ideas of Osama bin Laden and declare yourself" Qaeda "in _____ (fill in the blank)."
Recently, the Italian newspaper La Republica devoted a large article describing the geography of distribution of Al-Qaida. Its cells have already declared themselves in 34 countries of the world.
Vladimir Sotnikov, a senior fellow at the Center for International Security at the Institute of World Economy and International Relations of the Russian Academy of Sciences, believes that “Al-Qaida” presented to the world is moving further and further away from the main body of the organization. Mali has its own group, while Jabhatt en Nusra is operating in Syria, allegedly budding from bin Laden’s al-Qaida. Who can check? I very much doubt that our western partners have informants there who can provide reliable intelligence data. ”
How not to remember the Hollywood film "The whole lie"! In it, CIA agent Roger Ferris, played by DiCaprio, creates his al-Qaida cell. Religious architect Omar Sadika he introduces the minor jihadist henchman, transfers money to his accounts, and gives this whole circle to a terrorist sect. CIA dramatizes the attack on the American base in Turkey. And Ferris, on behalf of the al-Qaeda's newly-baked cell, announces the attack. You say: this is a movie. But after 11 September, Hollywood screenplays no longer seem fiction.
“Western intelligence agencies are creating dummy cells, with the help of which they turn staged terrorist attacks,” said Geidar Jemal. “With their help, they increase their budgets, knock out new allocations for the antiterrorist struggle from congresses and parliaments.” What they are doing leads to a loosening of the world order: the secret services are always interested in chaos. ”
What do we hear about al-Qaeda now? Reuters, CNN or Al-Jazeera show bearded guys with weapons against the background of the black flag, which declare themselves a new unit of this organization, threaten America and its allies. Then the world is shown something that has been torn apart by an explosion, to prove that the new cell has committed a terrorist act. CIA officials report that they have intercepted a telephone conversation or an electronic correspondence of villains from al-Qaeda. And finally, the villains are eliminated, as evidenced by the picture from the drone camera.
But who, in fact, rocket blown into pieces? Who are these people? And did they blow up anything at all? The world receives all the information through the global media from the American intelligence services or their colleagues in Iraq and Pakistan, who thank the Americans for their help in uncovering the latest al-Qaida cell. For example, this summer, the Iraqi security services thanked the United States for the capture of terrorists. On television, chemical flasks and a few people with their hands tied up from head to toe in latex were shown, as well as models of toy helicopters, with the help of which the villains were going to spray poisons over ... apparently, over the Americans.
“Americans have always worked with everyone: with terrorists, extremists, fascists,” said Leonid Reshetnikov, director of the Institute for Strategic Studies. - They were members of various organizations, recruited people to work inside, created parallel organizations, pushed them together. All this is presented to the presidents as a technical work for the main purpose: the destruction of the US enemy. And the fact that next to one "Al-Qaeda" gradually appears another, no one cares. "
The most convenient ally
Now we turn to the facts. In the United States, it is generally accepted that the CIA’s cooperation with Al-Qaida and Osama bin Laden ceased after the withdrawal of Soviet troops from Afghanistan. However, this is not the case. A statement by a member of the House of Representatives, John Kezich, in the United States Committee on Armed Forces is known: “During 1998 – 1999, we established contact with the Kosovo Liberation Army. Then for the militants of bin Laden, this organization served as a rallying point ... ". That is, the CIA helped the Kosovo Albanians, who, together with bin Laden, fought Milosevic’s army.
After 11 September 2001, the geopolitical term "terrorist threat" appeared in the United States. As it is now well known, for the first time to attack Iraq, the United States needed a whole diplomatic special operation. Bush Sr. lured Saddam to Kuwait, promising that they would close their eyes to Washington. As a result, Hussein was only half defeated. But after the year 2001 cost nothing to completely remove it. After the start of the bombing of Afghanistan, a member of the Senate Armed Forces Committee, Joe Lieberman, called for an end to Iraq: "We are waging a war against terrorism and cannot be limited to bin Laden and the Taliban."
Next, remember Libya and Syria. Here, al-Qaeda also appeared very handy. It is hard to imagine that the opposition, which arose in the wake of civil protests, would have demolished the Gaddafi regime even after the American aviation began to bomb the position of the Libyan lion. The shock force was other people. They are the ones who shout “Allahu akbar!” Every five seconds on any video from Syria posted on Yotube. And they are not at all like students and teachers.
When the head of the US Department of State, John Kerry, was asked in the Senate, “are there any al-Qaeda members among them?”, He, of course, answered “no!” He could not, in fact, say that in this case America was acting in close conjunction with a terrorist organization.
The United States can work with everyone. In Afghanistan, they fought for thirteen years with the Taliban, without separating them from al-Qaeda, and then suddenly declared them sane and began negotiations through Pakistani intelligence. Sergey Kamenev, Ph.D. in Economics, head of the Pakistan Sector at the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences, believes that the United States changed its attitude towards the Taliban when they realized that only an agreement with them could prolong the life of the Karzai regime. “The United States,” he says, “is trying to, if not control, is extremely difficult, then at least build bridges with the Taliban in Pakistan and Afghanistan.” With the consent of the Americans, the headquarters of this movement appeared in Qatar, where negotiations are being held through the mediation of Pakistani special services. The United States explains that there are bad Taliban and not so bad - radical and moderate.
According to Leonid Reshetnikov, this is a simple trick: “The division is very conditional. Who is who in fact, you will not understand. All radical! But the Americans report to their leadership: there is a moderate wing, which also arranges terrorist attacks, but as a result of these terrorist attacks, 20 per cent less than the population dies. It is with these “moderate” Taliban that we work. ”
Surprisingly, al-Qaeda has emerged in relations with the main geopolitical rival of the United States - China. The Uigur Freedom Movement and the Central Asian Uyghur Jihad Party are funded by al-Qaeda and trained in its camps. The declared goal of Islamic rebels in China is the creation of an Islamic caliphate in this region, which includes Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and the Uygur Autonomous Region of China. Thus, it turns out that the tasks of Al-Qaida coincide with the plans for the dismemberment of China according to the scenario of the collapse of the USSR.
Well, the last. Everything Edward Snowden told the world about: the extraordinary powers of the National Security Agency, the Patriot Act that limited the rights of Americans - all this was made possible by the terrorist threat and the endless war on terrorism. Al Qaeda has become a brand that is already half owned by the United States. The United States decides where al-Qaida is, and where it is not, when it strikes and by whom. In fact, there are two al-Qaeda. One that exists somewhere deep in the underground, like a legend, and the other about which America informs the world and on whose behalf it can act.
