Salman Abedi Wasn’t a “Radicalized” Muslim: He Was Part of Britain’s Version of Brigade 2506

‘Sorted’ by MI5: How UK government sent British-Libyans to fight Gaddafi

By all accounts, 22-year-old Salman Ramadan Abedi, fingered as the suicide bomber at the Manchester Arena who supposedly killed 22 attendees of a concert Monday night, was a normal, well adjusted Libyan kid living in England. But that doesn’t mean he was a normal kid in Great Britain. He was a normal Libyan kid from Manchester, which is something entirely different.

Apparently Manchester is something like Miami here in the United States.

In Miami there is a large population of Cuban exiles who want nothing more than a complete, bloody overthrow of the socialist Castro government in that country and many of them would do whatever it takes to see that happen. Cuban exiles have been used by the U.S. government for various guerilla warfare operations for decades. Operations that attempted to destabilize the government of Cuba making it ready for regime change.

The most well known of these actions was to be known as the Bay of Pigs, April 1961.

“(Bay of Pigs) was a failed military invasion of Cuba undertaken by the CIA-sponsored paramilitary group Brigade 2506 on 17 April 1961. A counter-revolutionary military (made up of Cuban exiles who traveled to the United States after Castro’s takeover), trained and funded by the United States government’s Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Brigade 2506 fronted the armed wing of the Democratic Revolutionary Front (DRF) and intended to overthrow the increasingly communist government of Fidel Castro. Launched from Guatemala and Nicaragua, the invading force was defeated within three days by the Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces, under the direct command of Prime Minister Fidel Castro.”

Brigade 2506 was made up of about 1,300 Cuban exiles, mostly from Miami. They were exiles themselves or children of exiles. They were shipped to Guatemala, trained to be terrorists by the CIA for a year and eventually they were unleashed on the Cuban people on April 17th, 1961.

There was absolutely no way 1,300 rag-tag “freedom fighters” was going to overthrow the legitimate government of Cuba. That was never the intention. They were bait designed to be horribly outnumbered and over-matched so that the new president, John F. Kennedy, would be forced to launch airstrikes and a ground invasion against Cuba in order to save them.

It didn’t work out that way and most of them were captured by the Castro government and eventually released about a year later to go back home to Miami where they were treated as heroes and had a party thrown for them at the Orange Bowl by President Kennedy.

Hillary Clinton and the Brutal Murder of Gaddafi

(Here is an article talking about some more of that “American Exceptionalism” everyone is talking about since Trump had the poor taste to tell a report that our leaders murder folks as well. Of course, I don’t know of a single proven incident where Vladamir Putin has killed or ordered the death of one person, much less entire countries, but who’s counting?)

by John Wight, Counterpunch

On October 20, 2011, Libya’s Muammar al-Gaddafi was brutally murdered by a mob of NATO-backed ‘rebels’, after first being beaten and violated in the most barbaric fashion. History leaves no doubt that not only was the Libyan leader murdered on this day but Libya itself.

The regime-change crew who dominate Western governments have a long indictment sheet against their names. Since 9/11 they have wrought havoc and human misery on a grand scale in their determination to reshape and own a world that has never been theirs to own. Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya – Syria currently embroiled in a pitiless conflict for its survival as a secular, non-sectarian state – this is the miserable legacy of nations which speak the language of democracy while practising the politics of domination…

The Perversion of the unDNC Convention: Part 2 – Clinton’s New Dems Promoting a New McCarthyism (you can’t make this stuff up)

by Scott Creighton

(Part 1 of a two part article on the perversion that is the unDNC convention this week can be found here)

Da Ebil Ruskies are Colluding with Da Ebil Donald to Deny Saint Hillary the White House” Clinton campaign and their sock-puppets in the mass media.

Neoliberal Hillary Clinton, the nominee of my former party, has a long history of agitating against the popular and elected government of Vladimir Putin in an effort to force a regime change in the country that was once a neoliberal feeding frenzy under the drunken eye of Boris Yeltsin. That is an uncontroversial statement.

Lest anyone forget, Hillary Clinton did her level best to disrupt the Russian elections back in 2011 and when that failed, she attempted to foment a color revolution in the country by making a color revolution specialist the US Ambassador to Russia in 2012.

“Want to know why so many Russians hated Boris Nemtsov? Here’s a video of him paying a visit on U.S. Ambassador to Russia, Michael Anthony McFaul, just after McFaul took office back in 2012. It’s well understood here and in Russia, that McFaul’s task was to attempt to instigate a color revolution in Russia from day one.

Most Russia-watchers are diplomats, or specialists on security and arms control. Or Russian culture. I am neither. I can’t recite Pushkin by heart. I am a specialist in democracy, anti-dictatorial movements, and revolutions” (emphasis added). Michael Anthony McFaul

“(Hillary) Clinton noted that McFaul, who is a specialist in democratic transition – a Kommersant headline from January 11 touted him as a “color revolution specialist” – is uniquely suited for his new post, given Russia’s current climate.” Russia Profile

So in comes the color revolution specialist and one of the first to meet and greet the neoliberal scum, is Boris Nemtsov. Go figure.” Scott Creighton, March 1, 2015

(It should be noted that Boris Nemtsov was a pure neoliberal who wanted Hillary Clinton to help set him up as the next Boris Yeltsin in Russia and when that failed, they tried a mini-false flag operation, his shooting in early 2015, as a means to further destabilize Moscow. It failed.)

That is the backdrop for you informed voters out there as the likes of Joe Scarborough parrot the ridiculous and completely baseless claim that Vladimir Putin is behind the hacking of the unDNC emails and the leak of them prior to the convention this week.

The truth is, Hillary did it, not Vlad the Destroyer of Worlds. As if that really mattered.

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.

The Hillary Clinton emails: A record of imperialist crimes

by Tom Hall, WSWS

Last Monday, the US State Department published the last batch of declassified emails from a private, unsecured server used by Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during her tenure as secretary of state. This latest release draws to a close a year-long review by US intelligence agencies of 52,000 pages of Clinton emails, ostensibly motivated by concerns over possible leaks of classified material.

To date, more than 30,000 emails dating from Clinton’s four-year tenure as secretary of state have been released to the public. Clinton played a central role in the prosecution of aggressive wars in Afghanistan, Syria and Libya as well as the carrying out of drone assassinations and other illegal actions in a number of additional countries, including Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia. Yet in its extensive reporting of the email scandal, the American media has virtually ignored the actual content of these emails, which contain a wealth of information about the day-to-day functioning of the Clinton State Department.

Understanding The Refugee “Crisis” of 2015 (or… Enter the “Refugee Truther”)

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Germany is demanding Facebook help their efforts by removing posts that are critical of their efforts to demand refugees are accepted across Europe

“German Justice Minister Heiko Maas wants Facebook Inc. to remove racist posts targeting asylum seekers after several attacks on refugee camps in Germany over the past week.”

———–

At a time when everyone was being told we had to STOPKONY from killing all the children, I and a few others braved the rampages of the online thought police and wrote the truth about the fraudulent propaganda campaign. It didn’t take long for the leader of that particular marketing campaign to wind up naked and high as a kite on the side of the road and as a result, his astroturfing campaign subsequently crashed into the rocky shoreline. Yet the campaign to recolonize Africa continues to this day unfortunately.

By the same token, a few days after alleged shooting of Malala, when we were being told we HAD to “LOVE MALALA!” or else, I and a few others were writing about the ridiculousness of the story and I even went so far as to suggest it was all about pushing an agenda of global for-profit charter school systems which would serve the interests of the masters of the universe in many, many ways. Turns out, with her fake little scar and her fake Peace Prize, Malala is busy spending her days running around promoting global for-profit charter school systems that will teach poor kids around the world of the wonders of Westernized neoliberal, free market ideology. She now lives in London of course.

Do I even need to mention the “Snowden truthers” and the scores of “alternative” truth-tellers like Dave Lindorff who attacked us for simply investigating and writing the truth about what was really going on? Do I need to mention the “Freedom” Act and the privatization of the surveillance state which is what I said the “Snowden” psyop was all about from the start?

How about the American Gladio campaign, which is apparently still going on today. Or the fake “ISIS” threat always showing up in nations Barack Obama needs to bomb into (or BACK into) submission?

Contrary to how it might appear, I’m not patting myself on the back, though I know my detractors will say I am.

What I am doing is pointing out that whenever a major agenda unfolds, whenever the “crisis” in support of that agenda takes shape, for one reason or another, you can always count on a certain measure of “truth-tellers” to get on board with the official narrative (at least in principle if not in totality) in the early stages of the effort and in recent years there have been very few programs bigger in scope and reach than the recolonization of Africa, the global for-profit “education” of third world populations and the fascist privatization of the surveillance state. Yes, they need to strip US citizens of certain constitutional rights and they need to do that on a very selective basis, hence “common sense” gun legislation via “mental hygiene” laws. And they need an ever shifting continuous threat for the long war, the endless war, the covert drone strike war at all places at all times. Thus, fake mass casualty events and fake beheading videos. But don’t let certain “truth-tellers” hear you speak about those.

That’s kinda like asking certain “truthers” what hit the Pentagon or what happened to the 80 or so security camera videos the FBI took from surrounding locations minutes after the attack.

Today, there is another “crisis” brewing and a number of “truth-tellers” don’t want to go anywhere near the truth of the matter. But I will. Because that is what I do.

So let’s talk about the sanctified story of the “refugee crisis” and how it’s being used for a number of various globalist agendas.

Who says it’s being used for globalist agendas? Well they do of course. You just have to know where to look.
