What is Missing from the Story of the al-Rawda Mosque Attack? I’ll Tell You

by Scott Creighton

“President” Sisi (actually a dictator installed by the Obama administration after the real president (elected) was deposed because he refused to lock his people into a lifetime of debt servitude with another IMF loan) says the Egyptian military will “avenge our martyrs” in the wake of the terrorist attack on the al-Rawda mosque in the town of Bir al-Abed, Sinai Peninsula. Approximately 300 people were killed (27 children) when a bomb went off inside the mosque and as survivors fled into the street, they were gunned down.

“This act will only increase our will and unity. The police and military will avenge our martyrs and restore peace and security. We will respond with brute force to combat these terrorists and deviants … This is an attempt to deter us from fighting terrorism and to destroy our will, but we are steadfast, and I say to all Egyptians, the battle you are fighting is the most honourable.” our dictator in Egypt

Keeping true to his word, the dictator (who killed thousands of protesters after his U.S.-backed coup in 2013 (here and here) (You can also see this work I did REAL TIME as the attacks were taking place in early 2013)  and then boasted about imprisoning 10,000 members of the opposition political party) unleashed bombing attacks against “terrorist” positions in Sinai right after the attack. Casualty numbers are not yet available from those strikes and it will be hard to get accurate numbers of casualties in the region due to the fact that al Sisi has made reporting from the area illegal since he was installed… a year before “ISIS” was even created.

Journalists, including from state-sponsored outlets, have not been allowed to report from North Sinai in the last few years.” BBC

The claim we are seeing over and over again in the MSM is that “ISIS™” is responsible for this attack. They say that since the defeat of “ISIS™” in Syria, the group has spread out to other hot spot locations around the globe in an effort to take their failed caliphate model elsewhere in hopes of greener pastures. That’s the story anyway from the majority of the complicit media and especially from the CIA’s Washington Post:

The brazen attack on worshipers at an Egyptian mosque early Friday showed the ability of the Islamic State’s regional affiliates to inflict death and exact revenge for the loss of the group’s main enclaves in Iraq and Syria.

There were no immediate claims of responsibility for the attack on the al-Rawda mosque in Egypt’s sparsely populated Sinai Peninsula, but there were many reasons to suspect that the Islamic State was responsible. Washington Post

Notice that little disclaimer in there? Here is another:

No group claimed responsibility for the attack, but it marks a major escalation in a region where for the past three years Egyptian security forces have battled an Islamic State insurgency that has killed hundreds of police and soldiers. The Guardian

“No group claims responsibility…” BUUUUUT... they are going to push the narrative just the same.

Don’t worry all you establishment apologist trolls out there… I’m sure Mossad asset Rita Katz and maybe Paul Joseph Watson will gin up a video of some British actor playing the role of an “ISIS™” terrorist claiming responsibility any day now.

You know, according to the official narrative here, maybe it wasn’t such a wise idea for the U.S. military to keep letting “ISIS™” terrorists escape from various Syrian cities in convoys of trucks or chartered buses after all.

just sayin

Anyway… the official story here is all about “ISIS™” once again but, as is often the case when “ISIS™” shows up to help a government justify attacks on one group or another, that’s not the whole story.

Let’s take a look at the history of both the “ISIS™” Sinai Province group (Nov. of 2014) and the Bedouin Sinai insurgency which has been going on in this round of conflict since 2011 and beyond.

Military Coup in Turkey: Post Mortem

by Scott Creighton

Last night on CNN, former CIA spook Robert Baer was despondent, irreconcilably inconsolable. He was talking to a CNN “journalist” about the coup attempt in Turkey which at that point was looking like it was quickly becoming a failed coup attempt.

Baer laid out a list of what he said were mistakes by the coup leaders and stressed that he himself had taken part in many CIA-backed coups over the course of his career so he was speaking from experience. “Baer would have done it better” was the point of the discussion as he mourned the missed opportunity for undemocratic regime change by violence in Turkey.

The normalization of the CIA’s policy of brutality was chilling. But Baer does have a point. He is experienced.

“Since 1953, the US has either attempted or carried out 80 coups since 1953. That is more than one per year.” Daily KOS 2014

(read: Killing Hope: U.S. Military and CIA Interventions since World War II, )

On MSNBC Rachel Maddow, the fake-left sycophantic Clinton cheerleader, it took them less than 5 minutes after Erdogan regained control of the country for them to start demonizing him again. Millions of Turks were out on the streets, had risked their lives and their freedom to thwart the unconstitutional coup and the first thing Maddow and company could do was start talking about their elected leader being a “power-mad dictator” locking up journalists and arresting opposition leaders.

Maddow’s guest, I forget which “foreign policy expert” it was, said looking at the airport where a hundred thousand citizens greeted Erdogan’s plane, that he was some kind of “populist… like Huey Long”

He spit the name out like he expected it to be censored like the “F” bomb or the “N” word. Maddow shuddered.

Oh God. Imagine a leftist who stands up for his constituency. The madness!

This morning CNN is covering Trump’s VP pick. Fox News is covering the Republican convention. And MSNBC is showing a rerun of an older Rachel Maddow show.

The coup attempt failed and the Mockingbird press wants us to simply “move along”

So it’s up to me to give you guys a wrap-up of last night’s events.

Should I Shut Up About the Known Unknowns: Greater Kurdistan and the “Revolution™”?

by Scott Creighton

(Please pardon the stream of conscience rant. It happens sometimes.)

NEW map

This is what baffles my mind. It’s why I lay awake at night, wondering about where this will all lead and why the hell I’m still doing what I do.

Chris Hedges recently wrote about how he sees himself on occasion and I thought how perfect it was as a description of where I am most days:

“I spoke three years ago to the sparsely attended state gathering of the Green Party in New Jersey. I felt as if I was a character in Mario Vargas Llosa’s novel “The Real Life of Alejandro Mayta.” In the novel, Mayta, a naive idealist, endures the indignities of the tiny and irrelevant warring sects of the Peruvian left. He is reduced to meeting in a garage with seven self-described revolutionaries who make up the RWP(T)—the Revolutionary Workers’ Party (Trotskyist)—a splinter group of the marginal Revolutionary Worker’s Party. “Stacked against the walls,” Llosa writes, “were piles of Workers Voice and handbills, manifestos and statements favoring strikes or denouncing them which they had never got around to handing out.” Chris Hedges

Sometimes I feel as if I’m a tiny little ant, a misguided Learesque ant, raging against a tempest of change that I have no hope of stopping, taking comfort in the act of resistance for resistance’s sake and for nothing more. My work hides with the dusty fliers in the corner while the “Revolution™” is televised daily to massive critical acclaim.

Willy Loman remains an apt analogy.

No. South Sudan is NOT a Regime Change Operation – It’s a Product Re-branding Program

by Scott Creighton

It bothers me a great deal when I read or hear misinformation spread by otherwise credible sources. These days it’s hard to figure out who has sold out and who hasn’t… as of yet. That’s why when I listened to the X22 Report yesterday I was a bit surprised to hear him infer that Obama had betrayed the government of South Sudan by making them sign a deal in order to ease the internal conflict in the country. X22 made a comparison between that arrangement and the Minsk II agreement in Ukraine which is ridiculous on it’s surface but more troubling is equating the illegitimate government of South Sudan to the rebels in eastern Ukraine.

As is often the case as of late, the United States has found itself in the unenviable position of having to remove various puppet leaders when things get too bad, or, more importantly, too visible on the international stage for them to continue to rule with an shred of legitimacy. It isn’t really about maintaining the illusion of legitimacy for our government’s client state in the nation as it is providing the indigenous population the pretext to “believe” that “change” is upon them.

I’ll give you a couple examples with the most notable being another case that was twisted by the so-called “alternative” gurus out there like “Tony Cartalucci” and Webster Tarpley and that is the example of the 2011 Egyptian revolution.

Remember Rab’a: Establish International Inquiry Into Rab’a Massacre

from Human Rights Watch

Egyptian authorities have held no government official or member of the security forces responsible for the mass killing of protesters in Cairo’s Rab’a al-Adawiya Square two years ago. On August 14, 2013, security forces killed at least 817 people and most likely more than 1,000 at a mass sit-in in what probably amounted to crimes against humanity.

Given the Egyptian government’s refusal to properly investigate the killings or provide any redress for the victims, the United Nations Human Rights Council should establish an international commission of inquiry into the brutal clearing of the Rab’a al-Adawiya sit-in and other mass killings of protesters in July and August 2013. The African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights should establish a similar investigation.

Tahrir Arrives in Greece: Parliament Approves Austerity Deal Late, Protesters Out Immediately

by Scott Creighton

38 Syriza party members voted “NO” as they were supposed to. Yet, Tsipras and the opposition parties who had imposed austerity on the people of Greece got what they wanted; they passed the latest austerity plan in spite of it’s brutal nature and massive resistance to it from the people.

For all practical purposes, Greece is now a German colony being run by the masters of the universe through their fascist Troika team.

nazi greece

For us here and a few other sites across the interwebs, this is not a shock. We’ve been saying that Tsipras and the “rock star” finance minister were sheepdipped neoliberals in leftist clothing for months and that the only way out for the Greek people was going to be for them to have their own Tahrir Square moment when their rage against being duped like they were grew out of control. And here it is. (photos and videos after the break)
