Up until now, the United States has been able to exert
control over most of the earth just by controlling the narrative that reflects
popular opinion about the war on terror. Whatever government spokesmen or
reporters have said happened on a particular day, was what really happened; it
was validated by popular consent.
The ability to shape people�s thoughts and opinions is a
power that every tyrant has dreamed about. Global trust in the good intentions
of the people of the United States moves individuals and entire nations to give
American leaders the benefit of the doubt, even when common sense cautions
Until fairly recently, popular opinion did not often call
into question the American or allied version of events. Widespread civilian
�collateral damage� from air strikes and disagreements between the Pakistani
and American military have opened the door to questions about the very nature
of this war and the leadership, or lack thereof, displayed by Western
The US has decided that to win the war in Afghanistan, it
must attack its closest ally in the war, because allegedly, Pakistan is the
state sponsor of the Afghan Taliban. The Pak Army refuses to fight all the
militants in Pakistan at one time, because their numbers are so great and
tribal connections run so deep that it would be suicidal. American leaders
claim that such a nationwide Pakistani offensive is the only way that the war
can be won. Pakistan, on the other hand, maintains that the US, India and
Israel are the state sponsors of the �Pakistani Taliban� terrorist outfit which
is waging war against the people of Pakistan. Since the United States controls
the narrative, the whole world holds Pakistan accountable for all the terrorism
in the world, no matter whether it is true or not.
Now is a good time to question American motives and CIA
dishonesty as the primary source of problems in this war. Obama�s minor
investigation into agency shortcomings demonstrated during the underwear bomber
incident, the destruction of the CIA drone center in Khost and the scathing
NATO report on US intelligence shortcomings (�Fixing Intel�), on the heels of
the Eric Holder investigation of CIA torture -- all of these ongoing problems
scream of an out-of-control spy agency. We have entrusted the CIA to lead this
intelligence-driven war and time after time, but the egomaniacal spooks have
consistently dropped the ball.
But the CIA has done much worse than merely fumbling their
appointed tasks, they have demonstrated malice and outright criminality in
their multi-layered covert war, which goes far beyond targeting any real or
imagined enemy, as the plan moves forward to wage war against the entire human
race, in order to accomplish their imperial goals. Obama touched on the problem
indirectly when he said someone �took their eye off the ball,� but he did not
pursue the idea to its obvious conclusion -- a lot of people �took their eyes
off the ball,� all at the proper time to make the �al Qaida� plan work. Clearly,
there are assets in key security positions who facilitated the Yemen attack,
just as there were complicit facilitators who made the 911 attacks happen. It
is no coincidence that there seem to be crossovers between militant groups and
the security agencies which are tasked with pursuing them. This is because the
militant groups are all children of various intelligence agencies, most of them
working under contract for the CIA, knowingly or not, at some point.
Pakistan is allegedly the �epicenter of terrorism,� but if
that were true, then why do most terror attacks in the world happen in
Pakistan? Do not forget that the CIA provides 50 percent of the ISI�s budget. The
ISI is a primary American contractor, as is India�s RAW. Western popular
opinion fully accepts the American/Indian narrative, that only Pakistan
sponsors terror. This ignores revelations by former Indian spy chiefs, who have
confirmed that India did sponsor thousands of terrorists within Pakistan in the
past, under a program called �Counterintelligence
Team X,� but this allegedly
ended in 1998.
Contrary to Indian and American statements, India is still a
primary state sponsor of terrorism within Pakistan, but Western apologists help
hide that fact, because the CIA is a partner in the current operations. In the
past, India�s RAW and the CIA have been adversaries. Up until the era of the
India/US nuclear agreement that hostility prevailed between the agencies.
The ongoing controversy over American spy David Headley is
not the only public embarrassment that RAW has suffered at the CIA�s hands. In 2004,
RAW spy chief Rabinder
Singh was caught obtaining documents for the CIA and meeting with a female
agent at a local motel.
He escaped to the US, where he was located in New Jersey in
2006. The Indian government tried to extradite
him, appealing the charges against him, he claimed that he quit the agency and
fled to the United States after being ordered to �participate in an
assassination plot against a senior religious Sikh leader.�
Sometime after the extradition papers were filed, the
following document was posted on the Internet. That document, called Summer
Offensive Report was on the operations of �Counterintelligence Team X,�
Singh had formerly run the �Counterintelligence Team J,� which terrorized the
Sikhs in Punjab. The report gives no clue as to who ran the �X� Team, but the
name Alok Tiwari comes-up in another paper, titled �Operation
Offensive Report claims to describe Indian/Israeli operations against
Pakistan in 2004, centered around the town of Wana. A new operation did
begin in Wana that year, the beginning of the �Pakistani Taliban� (TTP)
project. That operation began with the killing of Nek Muhammad on June 17. Arguably,
it probably began in with the Ilyas Kashmiri attack upon Musharraf. After being
picked-up by the security services, the former Pakistani Special Forces
commando/militant was captured was allegedly tortured until his release in
early �04. The experience left him a shattered man and he retired from the
jihad until 2007.
The guided missile attack that killed Nek set in motion the
events that would bring Baitullah Mehsud to power. He inherited a ready-made
army from his cousin Abdullah Mehsud, which formed the hardcore Uzbek center of
the TTP. After his sudden release from Guantanamo to Afghanistan in 2002,
Abdullah suddenly amassed thousands of Uzbek and Northern Alliance fighters and
became endowed with millions of dollars in cash and tons of the most advanced
Until now, researchers have consistently charged that the
Pakistani Taliban were sponsored by India and Israel, but have had nothing to
prove this other than photos
of tons of Indian/Israeli/American arms. The following from Summer
Offensive Report reinforces those charges:
�The summer offensive includes establishment of 57 training
camps in Occupied Kashmir, East Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Gujarat,
Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Karnataka and Assam to train and launch terrorists
inside Pakistan. Trainees are generally drawn from the Indian hatched dissident
groups of Mohajir Qaumi Movement (MQM), Jiye Sindh Mohaz (JSM), Jiye Sindh
Students Federation (JSF) and Balochi nationalists and other nationalist groups
from various parts of Sindh, Balochistan and Tribal Areas.�
For Pakistan RAW centers at London, Dubai, Iran, and South
Africa operate against Pakistan jointly with Israeli MOSSAD.
India has opened consulates (IOC�s) in Kandahar, Jalalabad,
Mazar-e-Sharif and Herat, besides having an oversized diplomatic mission in
Kandahar and Jalalabad are near the borders of Pakistan,
which insinuates many things. The ongoing Wana operation is being fed cash,
weapons and ammunition indirectly by RAW operatives under cover of Al-Qaeda.
MOSSAD and AMMAN have also contributed heavily towards the funding and material
requirements for these operations. The direct result of this was the effective
slaying of 121 Pakistani regular infantry soldiers on Nov 8th�2004,
just 3 days after the infusion of war material and assistance in logistics and
planning operations of the tribals by operatives of RAW.
The summer offensive of RAW includes working on ethnic,
regional, parochial and secular themes, which include Sindhu Desh Movement in
Sindh, Saraiki Movement in Punjab, Tribal Balochis in the name of Greater
Balochistan and taking advantage of Northern Alliance Government in Afghanistan
and using its tentacles at Kabul, Jalalabad, Khost, Kandahar and Spin Boldak,
the tribals in Waziristan and Balochistan are continuously being kept activated
for fomenting trouble � while Taliban and Al-Qaeda are getting the blame and
Pakistan gets the rap for �not doing enough� by US and �FRIENDLY� Afghan authorities.
After the Indian consulate in Karachi was wound up. RAW
started maintaining contacts in their sources/links in Pakistan through their
consulates at Zahidan and Dubai. Most of the staff at Indian Consulate in
Zahidan is from intelligence/security organisations including RAW, Intelligence
Bureau and Military Intelligence. The sizeable cover staff in their Embassy at
Dubai under the pretence of tourist traffic. The set-ups are dedicated units
mainly responsible for promoting ethnic unrest in Pakistan. They continue to
provide financial and material support to various regionalist/sectarian parties
in Sindh and Balochistan
UAE is being used as a launching pad for terrorist
activities in Pakistan. Agents are getting hold of young, disgruntled elements
and after carrying out their proper brainwashing, they are dispatched to Dubai.
Indian Consulate in Dubai is issuing temporary passport to these activists for
getting training/briefing. After completion of their formal training, they are
launched into Pakistan to carry out their terrorist/sabotage activities.�
About the content: I checked the Fata
timeline and found the following: The report claimed that �121″ soldiers
were killed near Wana in a large attack sometime between Nov. 4 and 8, 2004�the
timeline doesn�t list anything like that, but it does report that 140 soldiers
and scouts were killed in or near Wana between March 16 and Dec. 9, 2004.
Beginning in November, the report lists dozens of rocket,
mortar and land-mine/IED attacks around Wana.
The report author claims that the Indian embassy in Zeheden
is the source of attacks in Iran, attacks that have probably been attributed to
did begin around Wana in �04. The report also mentions Amman, Jordan as a
participant with Israel in the Wana effort. The suicide bomber who recently
targeted the CIA drone base in Khost, Afghanistan was a Jordanian
intelligence officer, related to King Abdullah, from the same hometown as
�al Qaida in Iraq� leader Abu Musab Zarqawi. The Jordanian attacker was sent by
Hakeemullah Mehsud, the commander of the Tehreek e-Taliban Pakistan, from Wana.
It was a revenge attack for the killing of Baitullah.

Khost Bomber and Hakeemullah Mehsud�, posted on vodpod
Another document, which continues the alternative narrative
since 2006 is the report titled, �Operation
Blue Tulsi,� which began in early 2001, marking the start of Israeli/Indian
operations against and within Pakistan.
By mid 2001, eyebrows were being raised over R&AW and
Mossad�s cooperation and, in July 2001, Janes Information Group reported that
RAW and Mossad are cooperating to infiltrate Pakistan to target important
religious and military persons, journalists, judges, lawyers and bureaucrats.
In addition, bombs would be exploded in trains, railway stations, bridges, bus
stations, cinemas, hotels and mosques of rival Islamic sects to incite
sectarianism. At the same time, the Balochistan Liberation Army rose out of
dead like a second incarnation and Balach Marri, a Moscow graduate, declares
himself the leader of BLA. Within weeks in Balochistan, numerous training camps
sprouted with each camp reported to be training up to a hundred militants.
Agents from RAW, Mossad and CIA operating in Afghanistan started moving in.
In mid 2001, reports appeared that the Special Operations
Division of Mossad, also known as Metsada, specializing in assassinations and
sabotage, has been based in India since May 2001 to train RAW operatives, and
Mossad and Shin Bet or Shabak were operating a number of teams in Indian held
Kashmir and were also operating a delicate spy network from Indian soil. In
July 2001, RAW increased its budget for Indian consulates in Afghanistan by
nearly 10 times.
Late in 2002, US and India signed an agreement on
cooperation in disarming Pakistan�s nuclear assets and the two-player offensive
team of Operation Blue Tulsi found a third partner in the form of the CIA. As a
result of this deal, Abdullah Mehsud was freed from Guantanamo Bay and returned
to Pakistan with millions of dollars in cash.
By mid 2004, the government had ample evidence that BLA and
some Baloch leaders were conspiring against the government, aided by foreign
On 13 August 2004, the chief minister of Baluchistan, Jam
Muhammad Yousaf, is quoted by The Herald (Sep 2004, Karachi) as saying: �Indian
secret services (RAW) are maintaining 40 terrorist camps all over the Baloch
Jan. 1, 2005, was the starting date. The local agents got
the signal and the operation started with the ominous rape of a female doctor
in Sui on 2 January 2005.
As expected, the incident created headlines all around and
culprits not being found created a widespread indignation. This was shortly
followed by the firing of hundreds of small rockets at a gas installation in
Sui on 7 January 2005, which put a hole in the supply of gas to the rest of the
country for an entire week.
Starting March 2007 . . . the numbers of �Pakistani Taliban�
in Swat surged and just as their ammunition and their military hardware did.
Some of this hardware was more advanced to what the Pakistani soldiers used.
A portion of this military hardware ended up in the
ill-fated Lal Masjid. While intelligence and military were busy keeping
Musharraf�s seat safe in Pakistan, a new political game started in the UAE.
Rehman Malik enthusiastically started pursuing the goal of
National Reconciliation Ordinance. He became instrumental in the final deal between
Benazir Bhutto, the US and Pervez Musharraf and NRO.
Near the end of 2007, the intelligence and the military were
convinced that a conspiracy had been hatched in the country with the sole aim
of removing Musharraf from power.
The assassination of Benazir Bhutto, simultaneous riots
throughout the country, terrorist activities occurring in every province -- all
of this had considerable similarities to the Bush administration-backed color
revolutions. In order to keep Musharraf in power, the government kept giving
into one demand after the other. As a result, Rehman Malik became head of
Interior Ministry, Yusuf Raza Gilani became the Prime Minister of Pakistan and
sweeping changes were made in the security and intelligence community. Still,
the government saw the war finally over when in one move Gilani put ISI under
the interior minister on 27 July 2008.
The entire Wana-centric destabilization plan can be seen in
the so-called Tehreek Taliban Pakistani movement, the Punjabi-Taliban influence
and the leadership succession. In addition, it traces the roots of the entire
�Islamist� psyop that grew from CIA/ISI operations against the Soviets and the
Iranians. Anti-Shia sectarian terror outfits were formed in Pakistan, then sent
into Afghanistan, where they slaughtered both Soviets and Shiites. After the
Soviet defeat, they turned against the Iranian-sponsored Northern Alliance
troops, before being fought to a standstill by the forces of legendary rebel
Ahmed Shah Mahsoud. (Mahsoud was eliminated by a
suicide bomber on September 10, 2001, his forces taken over by Uzbek General
Abdul Rashid Dostum with the aid of one Amrullah Saleh,
who is now the head of the Afghan secret police (NDS) and might be working for
In �07, the British operation in Helmand, Afghanistan, which
had been centered around recruiting the brother of militant Mullah Dadullah,
Mansoor, was merged with the Indian/American/Israeli hotbed of terrorism in S.
Waziristan. Baitullah was promoted to top dog in the militant hierarchy, as
Benazir Bhutto was killed and Mansoor Dadullah took the blame. The Afghan
Taliban transferred Dadullah�s forces to Mehsud, conferring legitimacy upon the
operation, Mullah Omar not yet realizing that Baitullah was really
Mehsud�s Swat operation under radical disc jockey, Mullah
Fazlullah, was the opening front of the Wana-trained forces against the
Pakistani Army. It is no coincidence that there was not a single Predator
attack against Fazlullah�s forces, and all drone attacks from that point on
were against Baitullah Mehsud�s main adversary, Mullah Nazir in Wana. Nazir was
the head of the Pak Army-supported tribal lashkars who had run the Uzbeks of
Mehsud out of Wana.
In 2008, Bush signed a secret order authorizing operations
inside Pakistan and the Pakistani Army secretly acquiesced to American Predator
show attacks upon former Guantanamo alumni. This provided a means to keep up
the show for the American audience. It also opened the door to covert commando
strikes in conjunction with action by the Pakistani Taliban.
The rest is history. On August 6, 2009, Baitullah Mehsud was
mistakenly killed by an American guided missile, tracking a Pakistani-planted
transmitter. It is likely that the CIA was tricked into killing Pakistan�s
primary enemy. Ten days later, the tribal rival of Mehsud, Maulvi Nazir, who
very likely had planted the tracking device, is killed by black-clad Special
Forces type commandoes near Wana; probably payback from the United States.
The �AfPak� zone of conflict is a land of smoke and mirrors
intended to put on a show and simultaneously obscure the action on the ground. Beginning
in 2007, the action obscured was a covert Indian/American war upon the people
All the usual voices will chime in here, saying, �We didn�t
create al Qaida; we didn�t sponsor Abdullah Mehsud, or Baitullah; we don�t
create terrorists!� No matter how much they yell, the truth remains to be seen
in these militants and their actions. After his release from Guantanamo,
Abdullah Mehsud did not kidnap or kill Americans; he went straight after
America�s greatest competitor, the Chinese. Likewise, in the case of Abu Musad
al-Zarqawi, the leader of �al Qaida in Iraq,� after his release from a
Jordanian prison, his victims were usually Iraqi Shiites, not Americans. After
being captured, abused and then released, both of these guys went after our
enemies, no matter what the press has reported otherwise. Were they
brainwashed, �Manchurian candidates,� or were they merely paid-off? US
Rep. Mark Kirk has raised the issue that most of the militant leaders in
southern Afghanistan were formerly held at Guantanamo and Bagram. Is that also
a coincidence, or by design? �Islamists� are primarily a product of the
American/Israeli/Indian/Iranian/British hands are all
extremely dirty after taking a walk on Dick Cheney�s �dark side� in Pakistan
and they owe a heavy penalty to both Pakistan and Afghanistan for what they
have done there. It is high time to drag all the spooks out of their closets
and air their dirty linen to the world. Only such a complete CIA housecleaning
as this will redeem the United States of America in the eyes of the world. Anything
less would do no good at all, and would also be a grave insult to those who
have fallen in our poisonous shadow.
