Report reveals role of CIA in Libya<br> US embassies are sites of espionage, not diplomacy

By Derek Ford

U.S. consulate in Benghazi burns after attack.November 5, 2012A CIA timetable and a report by the Wall Street Journal, both released on Nov. 1, have revealed the extent to which the CIA was involved in responding to the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi and the agency’s massive presence in the country. The attack ended in the killing of ambassador Christopher Stephens, an architect of the war on Libya, and three others.

We now know that at least two of the three others killed were not diplomats or members of a security team, as was initially reported, but were former Navy SEALs who were working for the CIA.

While most news outlets have focused on the level of confusion that took place in the response to the attack, the report is significant in that it provides further confirmation of the colonialist nature of U.S. involvement in Libya. The report also illustrates the role of U.S. embassies throughout the world, which function not as sites for diplomacy but as sites for covert operations and intelligence gathering.

Further, the revelations shed light on the CIA’s massive presence in the once-sovereign country. CIA agents in Tripoli were dispatched to Benghazi to respond to the attack. The CIA has an armed compound in Benghazi about one mile from the U.S. embassy, which was also attacked on Sept. 11. The Wall Street Journal wrote: „the U.S. effort in Benghazi was at its heart a CIA operation.“

It is now known that several news agencies, including The New York Times, The Washington Post and the Associated Press, had known about the CIA’s extensive presence in Libya and role that it played in responding to the attacks, but had agreed to a request by the CIA not to make that information public. (The Huffington Post, Nov. 2) These news agencies, in other words, withheld information from the public in order to help the CIA frame the attack on Benghazi as an attack on U.S. diplomacy instead of what it was: an attack on U.S. imperialism.

A timetable released by the CIA suggests that the attack was planned and executed by a grouping of militants, countering the original State Department narrative which attributed the attack to a group of demonstrators protesting against an anti-Islamic film. During the first wave of the attack a fire was started with diesel fuel, which filled the embassy with a thick smoke, immobilizing those inside. As a convoy tried to flee the embassy, it came under fire from militants. Then, when the convoy reached the CIA base, that compound came under fire from weapons and rocket-propelled grenades.

The CIA’s now massive presence in Libya is yet another affirmation that what took place in Libya last year was indeed a counterrevolution. Following the 1969 Libyan revolution led by Moammar Gaddafi, the country embarked on a path of nationalist development, which included purging two British military bases and the U.S. operated Wheelus Air Force Base near Tripoli.

At a very turbulent town hall meeting November 15, 1996 former LAPD Narcotics Detective Michael Ruppert told then CIA Director John Deutch quite bluntly: “I will tell you Director Deutch as a former Los Angeles Police Narcotics Detective that the Agency has dealt drugs throughout this country for a long time.” The crowd started cheering loudly. A crack cocaine epidemic had been ravaging LA’s poor neighbourhoods since the early 80’s and had devastating effects on the black community. (Watch the video: Former LA Police Officer Mike Ruppert Confronts CIA Director John Deutch on Drug Trafficking)

Michael Ruppert was recruited to protect the Agency’s drug operations in the US. He had the evidence to prove it. He got shot at and was kicked out of LAPD because of it.

Earlier that year, San Jose Mercury News journalist Gary Webb published a series of articles about the L.A. crack explosion titled The Dark Alliance. The story behind the crack explosion:

For the better part of a decade, a San Francisco Bay Area drug ring sold tons of cocaine to the Crips and Bloods street gangs of Los Angeles and funneled millions in drug profits to a Latin American guerrilla army run by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, a Mercury News investigation has found. This drug network opened the first pipeline between Colombia’s cocaine cartels and the black neighborhoods of Los Angeles, a city now known as the crack capital of the world. (The Dark Alliance. The story behind the crack explosion, San Jose Mercury News.)

While he was working for the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), Michael Levine witnessed how the CIA AND the State Department were protecting the drug trade:

The Chang Mai factory the CIA prevented me from destroying was the source of massive amounts of heroin being smuggled into the US in the bodies and body bags of GIs killed in Vietnam. (p. 165)

My unit, the Hard Narcotics Smuggling Squad, was charged with investigating all heroin and cocaine smuggling through the Port of New York. My unit became involved in investigating every major smuggling operation known to law enforcement. We could not avoid witnessing the CIA protecting major drug dealers. Not a single important source in Southeast Asia was ever indicted by US law enforcement. This was no accident. Case after case was killed by CIA and State Department intervention and there wasn’t a damned thing we could do about it. CIA-owned airlines like Air America were being used to ferry drugs throughout Southeast Asia, allegedly to support our “allies.” CIA banking operations were used to launder drug money. (pp. 165, 166) (Michael Levine, America’s “War on Drugs”: CIA- Recruited Mercenaries and Drug-Traffickers,, January 13, 2011.)

The Jamaican Shower Posse is another criminal organization which thrived with the help of the CIA and the American governement:

With the recent violence in Jamaica and the controversy over alleged drug lord, Christopher “Dudus” Coke, many people are talking about the infamous Jamaican Shower Posse and the neighborhood of Tivoli Gardens, where they have their base. What is being ignored largely by the media, is the role that the American government and the CIA had in training, arming and giving power to the Shower Posse.

It is interesting that the USA is indicting Christopher “Dudus” Coke, the current leader of the Shower Posse for drug and gun trafficking, given that the CIA was accused of smuggling guns into Jamaica and facilitating the cocaine trade from Jamaica to America in the 70s and 80s. In many ways Dudus was only carrying on a tradition of political corruption, drug running, guns and violence that was started with the help of the CIA […]

Former CIA agent, Philip Agee, said “the CIA was using the JLP as its instrument in the campaign against the Michael Manley government, I’d say most of the violence was coming from the JLP, and behind them was the CIA in terms of getting weapons in and getting money in.” Casey Gane-McCalla, Jamaica’s Shower Posse: How The CIA Created “The Most Notorious Criminal Organization” Newsone, June 3, 2010.)

Back in 1995, Philip Agee also warned:

[O]ther targets which are coming up all the time in terms of the intelligence community are the rogue states – the so-called rogue states: Iraq, Libya, Iran, North Korea and, for some, Syria. (Video: Philip Agee – Inside the CIA (the Intelligence Community)(1995)(1-9)(MODERN GOVERNMENT series))

Die NATO und die Türkei überdenken ihre Terroristen Strategie gegenüber Syrien

Selbst Hillary Clinton ist inzwischen sehr nachdenklich geworden, was ihre Partner in Syrien betrifft. Hirnlose Verbrecher, welche die US Aussenpolitik gestalten, finanzieren praktisch nur Terroristen und Kriminelle in Syrien, Kosovo, Albanien, Georgien, Afghanistan, Libyen und wo soll hier eine Strategie überhaupt sein. „der Feind meines Feindes ist mein Freund“, das können nur die Dümmsten als Politik verkaufen: angefangen von Kissinger, Clinton, Bush, Telschtik, Kohl, Merkel usw..

Auch ein Erdogan erkennt, das er auf falsche Berater hörte, denn wohin soll sein Syrien Abenteurer führen?

Erdogan ruiniert die Türkei, mit seinen Waffenlieferungen an Terroristen und Kriminelle in Syrien

Ermordung syrischer Soldaten durch Rebellen! Der Krieg zeigt sein wahres Gesicht

03. 11. 2012 | Von: Konrad Hausner

syria prisoners executionDie westlichen Medien geben sich überrascht. Syrische Rebellen ermorden unbewaffnete Soldaten, die am Boden liegend um Gnade flehen. So wie das Bild dieses Bürgerkrieges gezeichnet wird, sollte ein derart brutales Vorgehen doch nur den Regierungstruppen zuzutrauen sein. Diese Vorstellung ist blanker Unsinn. Krieg ist brutal. Krieg bedeutet Mord. Krieg macht aus harmlosen Männern blutrünstige Bastarde, ungeachtet, auf welcher Seite sie stehen.

Veröffentlicht wurde das Video, das die Ermordung von bereits entwaffneten syrischen Soldaten zeigt, von der „Organisation Syrischer Menschenrechtsbeobachter“. In einzelnen Berichten findet das Wort „Kriegsverbrechen“ Verwendung. Auch wenn in den meisten Meldungen erwähnt wird, dass die Authentizität der Aufnahmen erst überprüft werden muss, die Situation ist eindeutig. Sie zeigt, wozu Menschen fähig werden, wenn sie sich bewaffneten Auseinandersetzungen anschließen.

Massive Turkish Anti-war protests against Interference in Syria

News | 07.11.2012 | 16:09

Tens of thousands of anti-war protesters gathered in Istanbul, Thursday evening, opposing military action against Syria. Marchers streamed through the capital’s commercial district, opposing Turkey’s alliance with the United States and pledging support for the Syrian people.

The demonstration took place after the Justice and Development Party (AKP) government used its majority in parliament to grant Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan powers to send soldiers into “foreign countries”.

The clear intent is to wage a cross-border offensive to depose the regime of Bashir al-Assad without consulting the national assembly. The motion submitted allows the government to determine “the scope, extent and time” of any possible intervention.

The motion was passed after a stray shell from Syria killed five people in the Turkish border town of Akçakale Wednesday. Two days of mortar fire followed; Turkish fighter jets also carried out strikes on targets including a Syrian military camp, killing an unspecified number of soldiers.

The measure, denounced as a “war bill”, was opposed by the opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP). AKP spokesmen denied that war was being considered, but Erdogan called the mortar shells that hit Akçakale “at the threshold of armed attacks” and pledged “to act in a timely and quick manner against additional risks and threats facing our country.”

The parliamentary session was held in closed session, under AKP instructions. Demonstrators outside parliament in Ankara were attacked by police with teargas.

Internationally, Turkey engaged in a flurry of diplomatic activity to secure support for its stand. It called repeatedly for the support of its NATO military allies against an external threat, citing Article 4 of the NATO treaty.

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu personally called United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen.

The response was bellicose.

A NATO statement declared, “The Syrian regime’s recent aggressive acts at Nato’s south-eastern border … are a flagrant breach of international law and a clear and present danger to security.” It demanded the immediate end of “aggressive acts against an ally”.

Pentagon Press Secretary George Little denounced what he called “depraved behavior” by Syria and called for the removal of the government.

Britain’s Foreign Secretary William Hague joined Secretary of State Hilary Clinton in expressing outrage.

Russia blocked the more inflammatory positions demanded by the US and its allies at the UN. A first draft of a resolution condemned the shelling of Akçakale and the deaths of five civilians as “violations of international law” and as constituting “a serious threat to international peace and security,” calling on “the Syria government to fully respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of its neighbours.”

Russia opposed the reference to violations of international law and a serious threat to international peace and security, urging an appeal to both parties for “restraint” and to “avoid military clashes”.

Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov made clear to Interfax news agency that Russia was seeking to block “pretexts for carrying out a military scenario or to introduce initiatives such as humanitarian corridors or buffer zones.”

Most media sources accepted the AKP’s denials that it is contemplating war, but war is clearly what it wants.

The resolution moved in parliament was in fact dated September 20, showing that the AKP cynically used Akçakale as a pretext to promote pre-existing plans to obtain authorization for an invasion of Syria.

In addition, on Friday, the Turkish General Staff declared 15 mountainous areas, predominantly in the East and Southeast of Turkey “temporary security zones.” Public entry into the areas will be forbidden between October 7 and January 7 due to “extensive military operations” being carried out against the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK). Turkey has already said it will not respect Syria’s border in pursuing its military campaign against Kurdish separatists it has accused Assad of encouraging and sheltering.

Turkey has repeatedly urged the establishment of military corridors and no-fly zones in Syria. It also hosts the Free Syrian Army and the Syrian National Congress. It provides bases for various opposition groups to enter Syria and conduct military attacks, including covert forces from the CIA and Gulf States such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar and numerous Al Qaeda-type outfits.

The AKP is intent on advancing itself as the head of an alliance of Sunni powers on which the imperialist powers can rely to police essential oil and gas extraction and to suppress social and political opposition in the working class through repression and whipping up ethno-sectarian tensions.

But the AKP wants military action to proceed under a NATO umbrella and with active US participation. For both the AKP and the Obama administration, this is fraught with difficulties. Both would face major domestic opposition to the launch of another war in the Middle East. Both will face opposition, possibly including a military response, from Russia and China to an attempt to exclude them from the strategically-vital region.

The Turkish media reflected these concerns, with Ismail Kucukkaya, writing in centre-right Aksam urging, “Let us scream from the very beginning: No war!” Warning of “incalculable dangers”, he asked, “Are we right to make a war and do we have enough legitimate reasons? Does the nation want that? Will our economy bear this?”

Melih Asik in Milliyet warned: “We’ve reached a critical point. We’re not only up against Syria, but also Iran, Iraq, Russia and China which support Damascus. Behind us, there is nothing but the provocative attitudes and empty promises of the United States.” Referring to the AKP’s recent conviction of Turkish generals on charges of plotting a coup, he added: “What we have is an army whose generals are arrested… and a terror problem we are struggling to deal with.”

Such comments indicate the sense of impending disaster that is developing in sections of the Turkish ruling class. Nonetheless, the AKP and its NATO allies are continuing to pour fuel on the flames.

Warning Syria that testing Turkey’s preparedness for war would be a “fatal mistake,” Erdogan said yesterday: “We are not interested in war, but we’re not far from it either. This nation has come to where it is today having gone through intercontinental wars.”

The logic of the AKP’s participation in the US drive for regime change in Syria and to destroy Iran’s nuclear program leads to war with both those countries and ultimately with Russia and China—that is, towards war throughout the Middle East and the world. The parliament vote authorizing military action brings Turkey and the world one step closer to such a catastrophe.

Deutsche Welle wrote: “Ankara is preparing for conflict and at the same time stating it does not intend to declare war. The West has responded slowly to play down the clash’s importance… Turkey is not limiting its response to howitzer fire. The air force and navy were put on alert, according to press reports.”

“Few doubts remain about Turkey’s resolve to consider a full military reaction against Syria,” it concluded.

At the same time, Simon Tisdall busily lobbied for military intervention in theGuardian. Asking “How long can the world’s great powers sit on their hands?” he condemned “do-nothing hand-wringing.” He solidarised himself with the “pressure for more direct, multilateral intervention, most probably via NATO,” coming from the Arab states and US Republicans.

The head of the Israeli military intelligence, Maj Gen Aviv Kochavi, used the occasion to threaten action to protect the Golan Heights. “The erosion of the Syrian regime’s control and the growing penetration of global jihadist forces present a new threat, for which Military Intelligence and the IDF [Israel Defence Forces] are preparing,” he said.
