More Neocon Slime Trails
W. B. Schwarz
To prove any crime investigators have to know the chronology as well as the means, and the standard ‘who, how, what, when and why’; sometimes the ‘where’ matters if the actual crime scene location is somewhat questionable or in doubt. To fully understand the Neocons one has to consider the ‘crime scene’ as being global and any challenge that gets in the way of their doctrine or end objectives.
To understand this article and what happened two days, one day, and the exact day of September 11, 2001 in another part of the world, you will need to click on the link at the bottom and read a second article I wrote that appeared on OnlineJournal.com.
Suffice to say there were key Neocon steps put into place even before September 11, 2001 as part of their strategy to achieve their end objective.
I have written many articles to try to turn the tide on these Neocons. Some of the most effective ones have been the “Pop Goes the Bush Mythology Bubble” series that were in Parts 1 through 6. (One of my friends in DC and another in Houston that knows the Bush family informed that this series is what pushed Bush back to his whiskey bottle for solace.)
The “Pop Goes the Bush Mythology Bubble, Part 6” is the article you can download or view as a PDF file at the end of this one.
Today you will learn something about Afghanistan prior to September 11, 2001 and something that happened on that very day that the USA has tried to keep hushed up. They are all pieces of the evidence trail that leads not to Osama bin Laden, but leads to the Neocons in Washington DC and this myopic “Wolfowitz Doctrine” and their lunatic vision set forth by Zbigniew Brzezinski in his 1997 book “The Grand Chessboard”.
Tracking Neocons and how they play their version of ‘Grand Chessboard’ games is easy; just look for their slime trails anywhere in the world they have targeted. Sometimes it helps to look in immediately adjacent nations as they often use those as staging areas.
Fact: Al Qaeda was created during the Carter Administration at the suggestion of Neocon National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski. He is a well-known Russia-phobic Neocon that will tell any lie against the USSR or Russia Federation because he apparently knows not the difference or what opportunities his idiotic ideas have squandered for prosperity and world peace after the USSR disbanded in September 1991. I have seen Old Zbig reach back as far as 1939 to try to justify his illogical ideas on what the world really is now.
Fact: The Reagan Administration decided to use the CIA to back the Afghan Mujahideen as the first real deployment of the ‘Al Qaeda concept’; i.e. using Islam against the USSR to speed up the break up. That was to push for USA winning over the USSR in the long term. Their field commander for that gig was Osama bin Laden and his role with the Afghan Mujahideen.
The USSR then or Russia Federation now has never admitted it, but they had every reason to push for the Trans Afghanistan Pipeline and failed in that 1980-1988 war to achieve it. Only that pipeline route or the ones across Georgia to the Black Sea are the only way out of the landlocked Caspian Basin region unless… the USA wises up and mends the fences with Iran and comes due south from the CIS region nations across Iran to the ocean. The US detested the Bridas Corporation move that put a pipeline in during their ‘US-UK Afghanistan fiasco’ north into Russia that handles both Iran and Turkmenistan oil and natural gas, as if Russia did not already have enough oil and natural gas to market and ship around the world.
Fact: The Clinton Administration had the CIA upending the pipeline agreements in Turkmenistan and Pakistan during his administration in the 1990s. An Argentina company named Bridas Corporation, owned by Italian expats that had moved away many years ago, had under contract Turkmenistan (origination point), Afghanistan (General Rashid Dostum, an Uzbek warlord in Northern Afghanistan and holdover from the Russia-Afghan War from 1980 to 1988, and the Taliban), and Pakistan (the final leg to the ocean and what was to be the terminal at Gwadar, Baluchistan Province, Pakistan). Bridas merely used negotiating skills, pens and contracts, not bombers, tanks and bullets or political lies to create a war. Business is not as complicated as the US Neocons make it.
Fact: The Neocon George W. Bush Administration was still trying to bully the Taliban into letting the USA have the pipeline right of way across Afghanistan as late as August 2001. That is a known fact in the pre-September 11, 2001 timeline. As bad as the Taliban were in being religious zealots, they were honoring the agreement they had already signed with Bridas Corporation and Bush refused to joint venture or team up in some way. The Taliban were also religious zealots but only within Afghanistan, unlike certain US religious zealots that want to be Global Empire for Jesus Christ by force.
Fact: When the USA and George W. Bush pointed the finger of blame at Afghanistan and Osama bin Laden, they had no proof whatsoever. The US military was already practicing and provisioning for the invasion of Afghanistan at least 4 to 5 months prior to September 11, 2001. Even the FBI had to admit years later that the reason Osama bin Laden was not on the “Top 10 Most Wanted List” due to September 11, 2001 is because there was no evidence whatsoever that he had anything to do it. Nor did Saddam Hussein or Iraq, but that is another story about yet another Neocon brain fart that ended in failure, too.
Fact: The reason Osama bin Laden was on the Top 10 Most Wanted list was his alleged role in two US Embassy bombings in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and Nairobi, Kenya. He was not on the list because of September 11, 2001.
Fact: On September 9, 2003, the Fifth Circuit US Court of Appeals in New Orleans ruled in favor of Bridas SAPIC in their lawsuit for interference of contract in Turkmenistan. It was the Clinton Administration working feverishly in Turkmenistan and Pakistan to block the Bridas Corporation realization of the Trans Afghanistan Pipeline. That interference happened during the Clinton Administration so the Neocons did not lose out on their chance to seize control of the Caspian Basin and have the necessary pipeline route to get the oil and natural gas to the ocean. You can read that final US Court of Appeals decision at this link:
Of course, that was 1 year and 363 days too late to stop the Bush Neocon nonsense based on lies just as Iraq was in 2003. It was the Neocon Bush Administration the worked overtime to conceal the real objectives for the blaming and attacking Afghanistan, and the fact that Bridas Corporation had been tied up in the Texas courts since the Clinton Administration, but eventually prevailed. There could be no mention of “pipeline” or “Bridas Corporation” without incriminating the Neocons or revealing what they were really after.
Fact: One of the members of the 9-11 Commission, specifically Richard ben Veniste, is a senior partner in the law firm of Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw that kept Bridas Corporation tied up in court at Fifth Circuit US Court of Appeals and lost the Turkmenistan and Turkmenneft appeal to the US Supreme Court in March 2004. That was in progress while he was supposedly searching for the truth about September 11, 2001. Of course, that US court decision in New Orleans and then in the US Supreme Court was way too late to save innocent Afghans or Iraqis, or American soldiers from the Hell that Neocon Bush unleashed on them not due to September 11, 2001, but because it was part of the Wolfowitz Doctrine and the “Grand Chessboard” delusion aimed at achieving Global Empire America.
The US Supreme Court denied the Writ of Certiorari on March 22, 2004, and would not consider reversing the Fifth Circuit decision in Bridas SAPIC’s favor.
In case you are wondering, Richard ben Veniste is a Neocon. His law firm was directly involved in Uzbekistan where they shared an office with major corporate fraud ENRON (and represented them too in how to set up those offshore scams and accounting fraud), and Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan, all CIS region nations and ‘former territories of the USSR’ as stated in the Wolfowitz Doctrine in 1992. In short, Bush installed numerous 9-11 Commission members who were directly benefitting and profiting from the sudden change in US policy and interventionism due to September 11, 2001.
Fact: The Senior Counsel of the 9-11 Commission and at least 6 of the 10 members have publicly come forward that the investigation was intentionally undermined by the Neocon Bush-Cheney Administration and even by some of the Neocon gatekeepers Bush put into place to block or filter (or manipulate) the information flow that was making it through to the Commission members. It is sort of hard to find the truth when there was an intentional effort to keep even the Commission members in the dark or what was discussed in the newspapers and TV programming on the investigation and subject matters that were discussed.
Fact: The US government cover-up has nothing to do with the 28 pages of redacted information about the Saudi Arabia role in September 11, 2001. That is an intentional false path so America and the world does not take a much closer look at the Neocons and what their real agenda, methods and objectives are. Typical Neocon Strategy 101, point the finger of blame and turn up the media volume.
Fact: Everything you have witnessed since the Reagan Administration (Afghanistan and Iran 1980-1988, including arming Iraq to attack Iran), George H W Bush Administration (Desert Storm 1991), Clinton Administration (Bosnia-Kosovo and covert actions in the CIS region and Pakistan, and inside of Russia in Chechnya alongside some Ukrainian Neo-Nazi fascists I have reported on recently), and the George W. Bush Administration (September 11, 2001, Afghanistan, Iraq, Georgia 2008, still Chechnya 1999-2009 in the second war inside of Russia borders), and the Obama Administration (Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, and Ukraine) are all an interconnected agenda and all following the same game plan.
That is why it does not matter at all who is in Congress or who is sitting in the Oval Office, or which party is in power. They cannot even get into those seats unless they are onboard for the Neocon Agenda.
That the Neo-Nazi fascists that the Obama Administration has backed in Ukraine have been involved in hostilities (combat and terrorism) against Russia within their own borders since the Clinton Administration is a developing story that Russian authorities are already on and wise to. The US has been waging and committing acts of war and terrorism via proxies and CIA assets even within the borders of Russia for close to 20 years.
Fact: What you are seeing in Ukraine as the US intent to push them into being a Neo-Nazi Fascist regime that is diehard against Russia is a desperation move because every other idea and plan they put into motion has been a complete failure. You will read later on that even Bush tried to make a Grand Chessboard move in Ukraine when he was in office.
That game plan is the lunatic Grand Chessboard delusion of US Global Empire and the Wolfowitz Doctrine that the USA is the sole superpower in the world, ‘exceptional and indispensable’ and they will not allow any rivals to emerge whether regional or global.
The sheer arrogance of the Neocons is beyond absurd.
They think they are the only ‘exceptional and indispensable’ and ‘so awesomely star-spangled’ idiots in the world that are qualified to be the global empire leaders, and God help anyone that does not agree.
I have already shared with my readers many times what was published the day before September 11, 2001 and succinctly states the exact reasons that the Neocons have been so utterly obsessed with the CIS region of the former USSR, the mother lode of oil and natural gas that part of the world possesses, and pipelines across Afghanistan and Georgia to get to port terminals.
September 10, 2001: "Those who control the oil routes out of Central Asia will impact all future direction and quantities of flow and the distribution of revenues from new production," wrote energy expert James Dorian in Oil & Gas Journal.”
It is literally a make it or break it issue to the Neocons on whether or not they succeed in getting their Global Empire America realized.
The Neocons lost that chess game as well as the US policies they drove off the cliff with into the abyss! While the US and UK were in both a predicament and a quagmire over in Afghanistan, most of the CIS region oil and natural gas decided to go with Russia, China, India, and some others that preferred pens and contracts over guns in their face or bombs or drone rockets coming at them.
That is one of the primary reasons that the Neocons are about to go into apoplectic shock due to the China led SCO and the Russia led Eurasian Trade Bloc. They have the energy might, the Neocons do not because they lost but want Americans to think they won.
If you disagree with the Neocon doctrine and agenda or otherwise do not roll over, you are either villanized or labeled a terrorist. These Neocons will lie at the drop of a hat and intentionally state untrue things just to get their train wreck back on the tracks. They even aid and abet terrorism and fabricate wars based on lies just to get their way.
They also excel in deflection from the truth and obfuscation so the Western world does not catch on that the lies they utter are part of their strategy.
Any pretense that the Neocons state that they are concerned about human rights violations, whether real or fabricated by the Neocons and US proxies to justify such feigned concern, is a premeditated and callous lie as one of the means they use to sell their “exceptional” nation status. They push this lie to justify that the USA alone has the right to intervene or pre-emptively strike any nation, any person or groups of persons anywhere, anytime. This is one of the techniques they use to conceal their real agenda. Their concern for human rights or even human lives is non-existent.
Two days before September 11, 2001 one of the most powerful and influential warlords in the northern part of Afghanistan was assassinated by a bomber that had come purportedly to interview him. His name was Ahmed Shah Massoud, and yes, just 2 days before September 11, 2001 he was murdered on September 9, 2001.
Can you spell ‘foreknowledge’? Read on and you will understand.
He was not Taliban, nor a terrorist in the classical sense. What he was in life one of the smartest and fiercest Afghan warriors in history. He is a legend in Afghanistan and still highly respected even after his planned death.
The USSR came to have such a respect for this man they nicknamed him “The Lion of Panjshir” (valley) because he and his Afghan fighters were so clever, fierce and ferocious when fighting the Russian troops that had invaded. They learned over time to just leave him and his fighters alone because the Panjshir was the real life “death valley” for the Russians.
If you ponder that USSR respect for this man for a moment, you are about to learn why the Neocons wanted him gone and out of the way.
He had asked for military arms and financial help from the West for many years so he could take on and get rid of the Taliban. He knew their brand of harshness and religious extremism was of no use to his nation. Those requests were to no avail because just getting rid of the Taliban was not good enough for the Neocon agenda.
They wanted total control of the Trans Afghanistan Pipeline and unleash all of those revenues and dynamics of control and economic domination that James Dorian reported in the Oil & Gas Journal the very next day after Ahmed Shah Massoud was eliminated. Bush was already planning invasion in early 2001 and even plans for stationing US troops there permanently to protect their ‘stolen asset’. They finally got around to announcing that outside of the USA in February 2003:
“23 Feb 2003: OPIC agrees to fund the pipeline and Bush has guaranteed to protect it with U.S. troops (without telling the United States citizens). “23-02-03 Turkmenistan, Afghanistan and Pakistan (TAP) have signed a protocol for trans-Afghanistan Gas Pipeline Project… However, some recent reports had indicated that the United States was willing to police the pipeline infrastructure through permanent stationing of its troops in the region. The US ExIm Bank, the Trade and Development Agency (TDA) and the Overseas Private Insurance Corporation (OPIC) had also shown readiness to finance such a project, if leading American energy giants come forward.”
I have had many Americans insist over the years that September 11, 2001 had nothing to do with a pipeline across Afghanistan; it was all about ‘defending America’ from Islamic terrorists and ‘getting even’ for WTC and Pentagon on September 11, 2001. They must have missed CENTCOM General Tommy Franks’ comments before Congress about 5 months before September 11, 2001 that part of his primary mission in Afghanistan was “the pipeline and access to the regions resources”.
Ahmed Shah Massoud was a man that had to be eliminated because he was 100% opposed to having the USA come with troops and tread on Afghanistan just to force their pipeline deal through.
Under the Wolfowitz Doctrine, Ahmed Shah Massoud was a ‘regional power’ that the Neocons would not tolerate or allow to get in their way in pursuit of control of the CIS region and Global American Empire.
They already knew how deadly his fighters were to the Russians and why he was nicknamed The Lion of Panjshir. However, in their myopic and tunnel-vision manner the Neocons tried to convince the world that the US and UK would be welcomed with open arms and parades as the liberators from the Taliban. They failed to tell the world that they had already been warned to not tread on or invade Afghanistan on the pretense of lies and a fabricated war as to why they really wanted to take over Afghanistan.
Unfortunately for the Afghan people and the many dead and wounded US and UK troops, the Neocons never learn from their past errors in judgment and apparently gave no thought whatsoever to the fate that awaited the USSR when they made the same mistake.
It is tragically stupid when the Neocons thought that by eliminating the leader the remaining army that shared the same values and opinions would be any less deadly to invaders. There are dead US soldiers in many US cemeteries as a permanent reminder of the callous stupidity of the Neocons.
I know that at least once, maybe two times, the CIA had to help protect Rashid Dostum (an Uzbek, not Afghan) and had him located elsewhere outside of the entire region because he was all for the US coming and lining his pockets even more. Some have claimed for decades that Dostum is a CIA asset hold over from the Russia-Afghanistan War and he was not welcome to come back to the USSR area named Uzbekistan. There have been articles on that in the past but seems the Neocons have been busy scrubbing the Internet of articles and links that would prove why they loved their “PNAC Pearl Harbor” when it happened on September 11, 2001 and they could go chase after their Afghan ‘pipeline dream’ and their dreams of being held upon high as liberators.
This is footnote 484 in my book:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/south_asia/1563344.stm ; Tuesday, 25 September, 2001, 17:43 GMT 18:43 UK Profile: General Rashid Dostum: General Abdul Rashid Dostum, leader of Afghanistan's minority Uzbek community, is a controversial figure who has often changed sides in Afghanistan's complex web of shifting alliances. His followers gave him the title of Pasha - a title used by some of the region's ancient kings and some thought he had ambitions to emerge as the new ruler of Afghanistan - a position that has eluded the Uzbeks for 500 years. But in 1998, the dream turned sour and the Taleban forced him to flee to Turkey.
I included in my book “One Way Ticket to Crawford Texas” information about another well-known Neocon named Donald Rumsfeld that rushed right over to Uzbekistan and then went into Northern Afghanistan to meet with two other warlords of that area that were all for this US intervention. It was during this period that the “pipeline” had been given new life by the signing of contracts, and about to move forward, so they thought.
This is footnote 496 in my book:
http://www.muslimuzbekistan.com/eng/ennews/2003/12/ennews05122003_1.html ; December 5, 2003 -RUMSFELD ON TRIP TO CENTRAL ASIAN ALLIES: AFGHANISTAN, UZBEKISTAN AND GEORGIA; Source: The Associated Press - Uploaded/Updated: 12/05/2003 01:25:54: Here in the poor and desolate north, where the war tides first turned against the Taliban in November 2001, Rumsfeld raced through a dusty haze in a caravan of SUVs to a British Army compound, where he met with Abdul Rashid Dostum and Mohammed Atta, the two major northern Afghanistan warlords.
In the photo below Rashid Dostum is on the left, and Mohammed Atta on the right. That the alleged ringleader of September 11 hijackings is supposedly Mohammed Atta and a key US ally (asset) in Northern Afghanistan has the same name sort of stood out to me.
Now for the rest of the story and will be as brief as I can. You can read the entire story about what happened on September 11, 2001 just before midnight in Kosovo, and the WTC was in a rubble heap of ruins and there were close to 3,000 dead in the USA from a ‘terrorist attack’. The time zone differences are 6 hours between WTC and Kosovo and the Sun had not set in New York or Washington DC before something was put into motion in Kosovo and it too reeks of ‘foreknowledge’.
A man named Todd Engstrom worked for UNMIK, the acronym for United Nations Mission in Kosovo.
The UNMIK mission was to apprehend the ‘war criminals’ that US, NATO and EU pointed the finger at, and also to protect certain persons in the area. On the night of September 11, 2001 they were sent to do something else. A military flight left Kosovo before midnight and headed east with the UNMIK team, some other people that did not identify themselves and crates.
When they landed somewhere in the CIS region the UNMIK team and the other people, and the crates were offloaded and put onto a military helicopter and flown into the Northern Afghanistan area to an old Russian military base.
They did not know what was in the crates until they got to Afghanistan.
This article ‘Pop Goes the Bush Mythology Bubble, Part VI’ came out February 12, 2005. Note in paragraph 4 a reference regarding Bush and Ukraine. The Bush Administration was already backing the Second Chechnya War and insurgency inside of Russia, trying to flip Dagestan to be under US control for pipelines, and was already working towards using Ukraine against Russia.
What Bush was referring to in 2004 and 2005 was that since Ukraine was ‘contributing to NATO missions’ they should be granted expedited membership.
In February 2008, Putin issued a very stern warning to Ukraine about allowing Bush and the USA to put missiles in Ukraine:
This Neocon Bush ploy was about 5 months before he had Georgia, US mercenaries and Ukraine attack South Ossetia while they slept, and then got slammed with a decisive counterstrike from Russia. The attack by US proxies started on August 7, 2008 on the Black Sea and then a full scale assault on South Ossetia in the early hours of August 8, 2008.
You can read the rest here what they did from Kosovo on September 11, 2001(pdf). Sleazy does leave a slime trail and in their haste to hit and run, always leaves a trail.
