BMZ Group update: the Poet Qabil’s current status is: ARMED TEAM ON BOARD, as of its AIS “ping” of 08-20 09:34, located in the Red Sea midway between Jeddah and Port Sudan (20.80078°N/ 38.21693°E), according to lists the same status but with the most recent location update on Aug 21, 2016 18:51 at 16.77124 N/40.69882 E, approaching the Gulf of Aden. The armed team is likely that of a private security company who have boarded in the Red Sea to defend against a perceived threat of attack. See the International Maritime Organization document concerning this designation. The Poet Qabil is on the last leg of a lengthy journey from the Latvian port of Riga to the Indian port of Kandla.

We have been continuing to sporadically monitor the fleet of ships in which Bilal Erdoğan (the son of the Turkish president) is an investor. (See previous update of April 23.) Our interest had been peaked with reports that the fleet had been transporting oil originating from ISIS-held areas to European ports. We had tracked several of these suspect shipments from the Turkish port of Mersin. Notably, since the drastic reduction of ISIS oil production (, none of the ships in the BMZ group have stopped in Mersin, where the last port of call was that of the Mecid Aslanov on April 4.

China ( a BRICS nation) was host in ’08, and Brazil is host this year. Brazil is the B in BRICS. With the recent CIA encouraged overthrow of Dilma Roussef and replacement by U.S. proxy Michel Temer (see our edition of May 17), the status of the B is in question. With warming relations between Putin and Erdogan, however, could the B be replaced by a T? TRICS is perhaps not the most desirable acronym.

Panic Mode: Khizr Khan Deletes Law Firm Website that Specialized in Muslim Immigration

Zero HedgeWhy Did Khizr Khan Delete His Law Firm’s Website?

Did he assist 9/11 hijackers with their visas?…

Wayne Madsen ReportAugust 1-2, 2016 — What the media isn’t reporting about Khizr Khan

Khizr Khan, the Muslim immigrant lawyer from Pakistan who arrived in America by way of Dubai and pulled at the heart strings of viewers of the Democratic National Convention by regaling the audience with the story of the loss of his son, Army Captain Humayun Khan, in Iraq, told his son’s story but skipped over his own.

Khizr Khan entered the United States in 1980 from Dubai to attend Harvard Law School. That year saw the Central Intelligence Agency ramp up its operations in Pakistan in support of the Afghan mujaheddin against the Soviets. The Pakistan operation was shepherded by national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, currently an outspoken opponent of Donald Trump and a bitter foe of Russia..

Khizr Khan practices law in New York and is a member of the New York Bar. Khan’s Manhattan law office is next door to the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, which also happens to house the residence of the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power. Power’s husband is Cass Sunstein, President Obama’s former information czar who excels in the art of disinformation, propaganda, and cognitive dissonance. But more interesting is the fact that Khan and his wife are residents of Charlottesville, Virginia, a home to a number of foreign Muslims, many of whom are students at the University of Virginia who wish to change their student visa status to permanent residency, or “green card” status. Charlottesville is a so-called “sanctuary city” that welcomes those who either enter the United States illegally or overstay their limited residency visas.

Khan’s wife, Ghazala, is a pediatrician in Virginia Beach, which is a three-hour drive from Charlottesville. The Khans are not attracted to Charlottesville because of a convenient distance to their places of work. So why do they reside in the university town? When their son died in Iraq in 2004, the Khans lived in Bristow, Virginia, a far suburb of Washington, DC in Prince William County. The Khans had also once lived in Silver Spring, Maryland.

The official notification of Khan’s death stated:

“Captain Humayun S. M. Khan, 27, of Bristow, Virginia, died June 8, 2004, in Baquabah, Iraq, after a vehicle packed with an improvised explosive device drove into the gate of his compound while he was inspecting soldiers on guard duty.  Khan was assigned to Headquarters, Headquarters Company, 201st Forward Support Battalion, 1st Infantry Division, Vilseck, Germany.”

Khan was actually an Army intelligence officer, fluent in Arabic, who worked with Iraqi civilians in a program called the United States-Iraq Sponsorship Program, which was actually an operation designed to recruit Iraqis to work as police and in other “capacities” for the Coalition Provisional Authority, the U.S. occupation government of Iraq. Khan’s home base of Vilseck is a center for U.S. intelligence operations involving units of the U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command. When Khan was killed, oversight of Iraq “transition” programs, such as the U.S.-Iraq Sponsorship Program, had just come under the control of General David Petraeus, the first commander of the Multi-National Security Transition Command – Iraq.

Members of the Pakistani embassy, including deputy chief of mission (DCM) Mohammad Sadiq, attended Captain Khan’s burial at Arlington National Cemetery. The DCM of large embassies are almost always the embassy intelligence chief of station. In the case of Sadiq, this would be the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). In 2008, Sadiq, who paid his respects to Captain Khan at Arlington, was defending ISI as the Pakistan Foreign Ministry’s chief spokesman. India accused the ISI of bombing its embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan. The bombing killed four people, including two Indian diplomats…

Pakistan was not a member of the U.S. coalition in Iraq, which begs the question of why the Pakistani embassy’s ISI chief attended Captain Humayun Khan’s funeral at Arlington? Was Khan working, through his Saudi- and Pakistani-connected father with the ISI? If so, was the contact “sanctioned” by the CIA? If not, was Humayun Khan freelancing and feeding information from Iraq to the ISI, which then passed it to their close allies in the Saudi General Intelligence Department?

Khizr Khan claims he is a “legal consultant” in Charlottesville, although he is not a member of the Virginia Bar. Given the nature of Charlotteville’s status as a sanctuary city, Khan’s legal background and his work with the Muslim community in Virginia, it is likely that Khan offers help to Muslims who have overstayed their student visas in the university and sanctuary city to obtain permanent residence. It should be recalled that seven of the 9/11 hijackers obtained Virginia driver’s licenses, three of which were used as official identification to check in for flights on September 11, 2001. Perhaps if Khizr Khan had not been so willing to help dodgy Muslim “students” overstay their visas and seek workarounds to the law, Virginia might have been able to prevent the hijackers fraudulently obtain driver’s licenses. And had there been no 9/11, there certainly would have been no U.S. invasion of Iraq and Humayun Khan would have realized his dream of attending the University of Virginia law school and becoming a military lawyer. In making it easy for Saudis, Emiratis, and others to game the U.S. immigration system, Khizr Khan shares in some of the responsibility for his son’s death…

Wayne Madsen ReportJuly 16-18, 2016 — SPECIAL REPORT. Turkish sources: Erdogan behind “false flag” coup

WMR has been informed by Turkish and foreign intelligence sources inside Turkey that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan staged the July 15 military coup in order to determine what sections of the military would support it. Erdogan, who was never in any real danger of being overthrown by the small group of mid- and lower-ranking military officers who rallied to support the coup, will use the incident as a way to flush out supporters of exiled Turkish charismatic Islamic leader Fethulleh Gulen.

Turkish sources report that the coup was limited by Erdogan’s design from the very start. Although the coup began as a classic military overthrow of a civilian government, with strategic points — the two cross-Bosporus bridges, the Istanbul international airport, the state broadcast network TRT, and the General Staff headquarters in Ankara — all being taken by the coup leaders, it was doomed to failure.

It is still a mystery how the coup leaders, who limited their actions to seizing a few but not all strategic centers, could shut down all social media in Turkey, including Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. In fact, after Erdogan left his holiday hotel in Marmaris on the Aegean Sea, his plane was reportedly refused landing at Istanbul’s Ataturk International Airport, which was in rebel hands. Erdogan’s propaganda operation then began to put out false information that Erdogan, who was in the air on his presidential plane, was seeking asylum in Germany. WMR’s sources report that Erdogan’s plane never strayed far from Turkish airspace. Although major social media was shut down, Erdogan appeared on FaceTime from his iPhone on CNN Turk, which had not yet been seized by the rebel military forces.

If the coup had been a serious attempt, FaceTime would have been cut off and CNN Turk would have been seized at the same time that TRT was taken over. Also, the state-run Anadolu news agency continued to issue statements from Prime Minister Binali Yildirim claiming that the coup had been put down just after it started. An actual coup would have seen the news agency also shut down…

Our sources in Turkey claim that the coup attempt was a false flag operation for a number of reasons:

  • The coup attempt started out as a textbook overthrow but rapidly fell apart. Many in Turkey believe that if such a coup was a serious operation, it would not have dissipated so rapidly.
  • After first claiming they had total control of Turkey, the coup leaders gave up with only token resistance.
  • By closing all lanes on the cross-Bosporus bridges and not keeping one lane open so people could get home from work, the population grew angry at the “coup” and its “leaders.”
  • Erdogan’s plane landed without incident. In an actual coup, his plane would have been surrounded by the military and he would have been placed under arrest. Or, if the presidential plane insisted on landing against the military’s orders, it could have been shot down.
  • Erdogan was met at the airport by a crowd waving brand new Turkish flags, the folds still visible. This is always a sign of George Soros’s involvement in themed revolutions, with protesters always waving factory-fresh flags. Some Erdogan supporters were also seen waving brand new flags representing the Muslim separatist group of East Turkestan in western China, a group supported by Soros. Soros’s Open Society Institute operates freely in Istanbul and Soros is on friendly terms with Erdogan.
  • Erdogan’s government ordered the imams to begin using the minarets to urge people into the streets. In an actual military coup, the minaret speaker systems would have been ordered to remain silent or power would have been cut off to the mosques. Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party (AKP) supporters were marching in the streets hand-in-hand with imams and other Muslim officials shouting “Allahu Akbar.”
  • The Pentagon claims it was surprised by the coup. However, U.S. military officers are attached as NATO liaison officers to the Turkish Defense Ministry and Turkish officers work inside the Pentagon. It is doubtful that such a coup could have been planned by a small group of Turkish officers without the Turkish General Staff and U.S. liaison officers knowing about it.
  • Erdogan’s government, on the morning after the coup attempt, ordered the sacking of 2,745 judges.

There were also three military attacks on the Turkish parliament in Ankara. It is very possible that these were carried out by pro-Erdogan military units. Erdogan has been trying to force through a new Constitution for Turkey that would confer even more powers on the president. Erdogan has also seized control of Gulen-owned media, including the newspaper Zaman and he recently suggested that Syrian refugees in Turkey, including a number of jihadists, be granted Turkish citizenship. These moves were met with hostility by Turkey’s opposition parties in parliament. By ordering an attack on parliament, Erdogan was sending a not-so-subtle message to the opposition. In the wake of the coup, Erdogan has silenced the political opposition while having messages of support from U.S. president Barack Obama, German chancellor Angela Merkel, British prime minister Theresa May, and EU President Donald Tusk, among others…

Wayne Madsen ReportJuly 13-14, 2016 — “Big Mother” takes over helm of UK

The “Queen of Surveillance,” UK Home Secretary Theresa May, has assumed the office of Prime Minister. May is a longtime champion of every form of intrusive surveillance that ever came before her desk at the Home Office. For Britain, what is already the world’s leading high-tech surveillance state will now move closer to George Orwell’s dystopian futuristic Britain, a country he dubbed “Airstrip One.” …

May’s pet project at the Home Office has been the passage of the Data Retention and Investigatory Powers (DRIP) Act, legislation that saw its second reading on the way to final passage in the House of Lords. However, Liberal Democratic lords have demanded changes to the legislation and have slowed its final passage.

DRIP will take Britain from being a highly-intrusive nation to one of almost total electronic surveillance…

Although May was a supporter of the remain in the EU campaign, she now says she will oversee Britain’s extrication from the organization. However, many in Britain see May’s sudden support for Brexit as her golden opportunity to leave the jurisdiction of the European Court of Human Rights, therefore removing a major stumbling block on implementation of her surveillance law.

In stateside election news, we headlined the inevitable in our previous installment, the day before it was made official. Here is how it played out from July the 5th…

Though not mentioned in the lawsuit, at least one scientific study of the effects of the Corexit, a heavily used dispersant during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, showed that the dispersant may cause serious harm on a microbial level, hindering the oil bioremediation process.
     According to a March 2011 studyby [sic] the Inter-Research Science Center, scientists studied the presence of Corexit in oil from the Deepwater Horizon explosion along the Louisiana coast and found that Corexit was toxic to two crucial, naturally occurring bacteria that aid the bioremediation process of breaking down oil so it becomes nontoxic to other life.
     The study found that Corexit was nontoxic to a third bacteria prevalent in the Gulf of Mexico, which does not contribute to breaking down oil but is highly toxic to marine life, especially to marine and land mammals, including humans. This is the bacteria Vibrio vulnificus. Vibrio vulnificus has been found in high concentrations in tar balls along the Gulf Coast.

Wayne Madsen ReportJune 29-30, 2016 — SPECIAL REPORT. The EU: a powerhouse and protection mechanism for a pedophile hierarchy

It is entirely fitting that the European Central Bank (ECB) chief Mario Draghi has decided to convene the annual meeting of ECB bankers in the Portuguese city of Sintra. Draghi and his fellow bankers are trying to decide how to mitigate the effects of the Brexit vote by Britain to leave the European Union. Sintra, which is outside of Lisbon, is a three hour drive from Praia da Luz, Portugal. And it is in the coastal resort town of Praia de Luz where the real story behind the British, Portuguese, French, Danish, Dutch and other EU nationalities’ rejection of the evil artifice of the EU infrastructure begins.

The European Union and its goal of a borderless Europe, the euro common currency, a common police force – EUROPOL – benefits only one major and influential group: the pedophile network that dominates the EU and individual member states like the United Kingdom, Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Sweden, and others. The Schengen system, which drops intra-European border controls, permits pedophiles, even those with prior criminal records, to travel unchallenged throughout the Schengen group of countries. Schengen also permits pedophiles to transport kidnapped minors across national boundaries. The euro permits the pedophile networks to engage in money laundering with ease. The EU enables investors to build and maintain “family friendly” resort complexes in countries like Portugal, Spain, and France. These resorts actually cater to the whims of pedophiles. The EU also supports the political and social “rights” of various practitioners of sexual deviancy, which provides legal cover for pedophiles to establish various NGOs across Europe to push their political agenda. Two such outfits are the UK’s Pedophile Information Exchange (PIE) and its ally, the National Council for Civil Liberties, which advocate for the decriminalization of sex between adults and children as young as ten years of age. In other words, the EU and member states like the UK have enabled a virtual continental-wide paradise for pedophiles…

May 3, 2007 was the day that 3-year old Madeleine McCann disappeared from her family’s holiday rental apartment on the southern coast of Portugal in the Algarve region. The disappearance of the little girl from Apartment 5A of the Ocean Club Resort, managed by Mark Warner, Ltd., became an immediate media sensation in Britain and throughout Europe. But, just as the news about Madeleine’s disappearance broke, top officials of Number 10 Downing Street, the residence of then-British Prime Minister Tony Blair, began to conduct a damage control campaign. Why would the staff of a British Prime Minister become involved in media spin about a missing little girl on holiday with her parents and siblings in Portugal? Of course, the story pulled at the heart strings of any normal person but the reaction of Blair and his advisers was suspect, to say the least.

Sigmund Freud and his deviant pedophile heir

Now comes news that the late Liberal MP, broadcaster, and humorist Sir Clement Freud, the grandson of psychopathology sex expert Dr. Sigmund Freud, was known to be a pedophile. Of greater interest is that fact that Freud owned a villa in Praia da Luz, very close to the Ocean Club Resort where Madeleine turned up missing. It has also been reported that Freud was acquainted with the McCanns and their three children, including Madeleine. Freud died in 2009, some two years after Madeleine was reported missing. The presence of several known and suspected pedophiles living and holidaying in and around Praia da Luz, including a number of people questioned by the Portuguese police, has a number of missing children investigators convinced that the resort town is a major center of pedophile activity in Europe.

Within the first few weeks of the investigation by British and Portuguese police of little Madeleine’s disappearance, Number 10 dispatched Clarence Mitchell, a former BBC television news reporter/anchor and the head of Blair’s Central Office of Information’s (COI) Media Monitoring Unit to Portugal to act as the McCann’s official spokesman. Mitchell’s media watchdog job had been to ensure that the media only published and broadcast the official disinformation issued by Blair and other ministers in his government on a wide range of topics. Mitchell was sent off to Portugal to put forth only that information about Madeleine’s disappearance that comported with Number 10’s wishes.

Mitchell replaced the first spin doctor dispatched to Portugal. She was Sheree Dodd, a former Daily Mirror journalist and Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesman who was a spokesperson for Blair. It is suspected that Dodd began questioning the “facts” being spun about Madeleine’s disappearance and began leaking such doubts anonymously to the press. Dodd lasted only a few days in the job before being replaced by Mitchell.

Blair and Mitchell must have been fully aware that the Portuguese police investigation, and that of the British police, would soon uncover links to the immense pedophilia that dominates the power structures of the EU in Brussels and Strasbourg, as well as the national governments of Britain, Belgium, the Netherlands, France, and other EU member states. Of greater interest is the fact that a few months after Madeleine’s disappearance, Mitchell contracted with a public relations firm owned by Matthew Freud to help handle media operations on the McCann case. Freud also happens to be the son of Praia da Luz resident and suspected pedophile Sir Clement Freud…

Muzzling the media: a pedophile specialty

The Mitchell media machine and its London barristers managed to intimidate several independent media outlets that were vigorously pursuing the truth about Madeleine’s disappearance. These included the Portuguese newspaper Tal & Qual, which was sued and soon folded its operations. Some of the same legal threats against the media reporting the truth about the McCann case were also employed against journalists investigating the pedophile scandal at the Haute de Garenne,a former children’s orphanage on the isle of Jersey, a self-governing British island between France and England. In 2008, small human remains were found on the grounds of the orphanage, which had been a favorite place for BBC pedophile Jimmy Saville to visit. Jersey’s former health minister Stuart Syvret has been branded a “conspiracy nutter” by the Jersey government and its small media operations.

In 2011, American journalist American journalist Leah McGrath Goodman, who investigated the orphanage, was detained at Heathrow airport and banned from re-entering the UK. Although U.S. citizens can be prevented from entering Jersey by being barred from the UK, EU citizens wanting to visit either Jersey or Guernsey and its dependencies, can do so freely from either France or the UK. The Brexit will make this a much more difficult process from the European mainland. Jersey is another case where the EU benefits pedophilia more than it does trade and tourism.

The capital of the EU, Brussels, was ground zero for one of the worst pedophile cases in modern European history, the Dutroux Affair. From 1995 to 1996, Dutroux was convicted of raping and torturing six girls, ages 8 to 19, four of whom he murdered. In 1992, Dutroux was released from prison after having been convicted of raping five young girls. Dutroux received an early release on the order of Belgian Justice Minister Melchior Wathelet. At his strangely-delayed 2004 trial, Dutroux claimed that he was part of a European-wide pedophile ring that included top officials of the police force and government. The rumors of the cover-up of the Dutroux Affair led into the Belgian Royal Palace. On July 21, 2013, King Albert II, who had been rumored to have been involved in the Dutroux cover-up, surprised Belgium by announcing his abdication for “health reasons.” A member of the House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, the same ruling family as that of the UK, Albert remains alive as of this day…

DEBKAfileBangladesh: ISIS pays Italy back for role in Libya

WMRJune 20-21, 2016 — Is the White House using Indonesia to stir up tensions with China? – with extended excerpts:

The third armed clash between Indonesian maritime patrol craft and a Chinese fishing vessel has been reported in the extreme southern part of the South China Sea. Although China has had maritime territorial disputes with other countries in the region, particularly the Philippines and Vietnam, Sino-Indonesian relations have been spared from the tensions elsewhere in the region, particularly around hotly-contested islands in the Paracel and Spratly groups. However, that has now changed with yet another clash between the Indonesian Navy and Chinese fishing boats in the Natuna Islands area. Although the Chinese “Nine-Dash Line” map does not include Indonesia’s Natuna islands, the territory claimed by China does reach into what Indonesia claims as its Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). China says the waters are in China’s traditional fishing area. 

In March, a Chinese Coast Guard vessel tried to prevent the Indonesian Navy from towing away a Chinese fishing boat. In May, the Indonesian Navy opened fire on a Chinese fishing boat as it was fleeing the area. The boat was captured and its crew continues to be detained in Ranai, the capital of the Natuna islands. On June 17, the Indonesian Navy opened fire on another Chinese fishing boat, injuring one crewman.

The recent open warfare between Indonesia and China is music to the ears of those in the Obama White House and Pentagon who are itching for a dual military conflict between the United States on one side and China and Russia on the other.

In 2015, China officially recognized Indonesia’s sovereignty over the Natuna islands. More significantly, China also recognized Indonesia’s EEZ right, which also happen to extend into China’s “Nine-Dash Line” boundary. However, there are now full-blown naval clashes between China and Indonesian vessels on the high seas. Who is responsible for this sudden breakdown in relations between Beijing and Jakarta?

The answer lies in an Oval Office occupied by a president with deep familial roots in Indonesia and someone whose past few trips to Asia have been designed to ratchet up tensions with China. Some outside influence has prompted Indonesian president Joko “Jokowi” Widodo to lay down the gauntlet to China. President Obama is the likely behind-the-scenes villain since he is someone who has shown through his military “pivot to Asia” that he will take advantage of any potential hot spot in Asia to rattle American sabers against China. Since announcing his pivot to Asia in 2011, Obama has undertaken a series of provocative moves against China. These have included:

– Visiting Vietnam and announcing that the U.S. would sell weapons to the country that continues to be plagued by un-exploded U.S. ordnance, including land mines, from the Vietnam War.
– Ordering the return of U.S. troops and bases to the Philippines, including the reactivation of the U.S. Navy presence in Subic Bay.
– Negotiating with Vietnam the return of the U.S. Navy to Cam Ranh Bay, a major U.S. base during the Vietnam War.
– Basing U.S. P-8 Poseidon maritime surveillance aircraft and four littoral combat ships in Singapore.
– Basing U.S. Marines and U.S. air assets in Darwin, Australia.
-Quietly pressuring Japan to eliminate the constitutional clause, inserted at the insistence of General Douglas MacArthur, prohibiting Japan from maintaining an offensive military structure.
– Increasing the number of joint naval exercises with South Korea.
– Inviting the Indian Navy, for the first time, to take part in naval exercises with the U.S. and Japanese navies in waters off of the Senkaku (Diaoyu) Islands, claimed by Japan and China, in the East China Sea. The annual U.S.-Indian Malabar exercise was moved from Indian waters to those close to China for the sole purpose of ratcheting up tensions with China.
– Assisting the Philippines in creating a National Coast Watch Center in Manila.
– Authorizing a $1,83 billion arms deal with Taiwan that includes missiles and naval frigates.
– Establising a U.S. Marine Corps presence in the Malaysian state of Sabah on Borneo.
– Deploying Global Hawk and Triton unmanned aerial vehicles to Andersen Air Force Base in Guam.
– Permanently linking the Brunei military with a U.S. state Army National Guard unit for joint training and operations.
– Increasing the number of Chinese-speaking agents at the CIA station co-located with the U.S. Consulate General in Hong Kong.
– Detailing a greater number of naval vessels from the U.S. Navy’s Third Fleet in San Diego to East Asian waters….

There has recently been a debate in Indonesia about opening up an investigation of the 1965 coup that toppled President Sukarno and resulted in a genocide against actual and perceived members of the Indonesian Communist Party (PKI) and ethnic Chinese Indonesian citizens. As many as one million may have been killed as a result of the Central Intelligence Agency-backed coup and the resulting massacre of leftists and Chinese. The General Suharto regime that took power had two willing accomplices. One was Lieutenant Colonel Lolo Soetoro of the Indonesian Army, the stepfather of Obama, who enrolled his young stepson in a state school after declaring him an Indonesian citizen. The other accomplice to genocide was Ann Dunham Soetoro, Obama’s mother whose covert CIA work for the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) resulted in her identifying all the leftists in central Javanese villages and the turning over lists of Indonesian “Reds” to her husband who passed them to Suharto’s execution teams.

Although many Indonesians favor an investigation of the 1965 coup, which could result in the roles of Obama’s stepfather and mother being revealed, the secrets of the Obama family and the coup and the systematic genocide of the Communists and ethnic Chinese may remain as just that, secret. Protests against any investigation of the coup by Saudi-influenced Islamists in Indonesia have broken out in Indonesia. The ringleaders of the protests are senior officers of the Indonesian military and, more importantly, the Islam Defenders Front (FPI) and the Islamic People’s Forum (FUI), both groups financed by Wahhabist financiers based in Saudi Arabia. Just as right-wing Muslims assisted Suharto, Lolo Soetoro, Ann Dunham Soetoro, and the CIA in helping to stamp out the PKI and target the ethnic Chinese, they have come to the assistance of the CIA, now run by pro-Wahhabist John Brennan, in opposing an investigation of the events of 1965 and succeeding years…

WMR has been informed that U.S. special operations teams have deployed with Indonesian naval forces in patrolling the waters of the South China Sea and assisting in the interdiction of Chinese fishing vessels and Coast Guard patrol boats. This comes on the heels of first-ever joint U.S. and Indonesian submarine exercises in Indonesia waters. For many years, CIA personnel have worked with Indonesian fishermen, some who supplement their incomes by also engaging in piracy, in interdicting and boarding vessels of interest transiting the seas around the Natuna islands. More than one North Korean-flagged, as well as “flag of convenience” merchant ships have been boarded by joint teams of Indonesian fishermen/pirates and U.S. special operations personnel. The U.S. teams locate and seize military items from North Korea, including missiles and their components, and nuclear components heading to North Korea, while the moonlighting Indonesian fishermen are welcome to take all the Chinese-made televisions, laptop computers, and other consumer goods they can haul away. When WMR’s editor first came across this U.S.-Indonesian operation in the 1990s, during the Clinton administration, the CIA asked that the details not be published. This editor agreed at the time but now it is obvious that the U.S. dalliance with piracy on the open seas is no longer confined to interdicting North Korean materials for North Korea’s nuclear program but is aimed at starting a war with China.

With the same type of teams now working together to target Chinese fishing boats, the Obama administration has crossed a dangerous line. The framers of the U.S. Constitution, who were emphatic about requiring a U.S. president to be “natural born,” intended to bar from office foreign-born individuals whose biases and connections to foreign countries could result in a dual-loyalty problem. Obama’s Indonesian connections have not only helped to bring Indonesia on to America’s side in a looming conflict with China but have also disrupted Indonesia’s desire to pursue the whole truth about the coup of 1965.

Get Off the BSFailed Trump Assassin Michael Sandford Trained With Omar Mateen

APFuller picture emerges of man arrested at Trump rally

The AP picture is in fact quite vacuous, skirting over the question of how Sandford was able to fund his “mission”…

WMRJune 21-22, 2016 — Is 2016 the year of the assassin?

…Sandford, who lived with his mother in Dorking in Sussex, England, is reported to be autistic and having an obsession with robots featured in the television show “Robot Wars.” The UK Mirror reported that Sandford had no idea how to operate the robots he ordered.

Sandford’s robot fascination is reminiscent of John Warnock Hinckley, Jr.’s infatuation with actress Jodie Foster. Hinckley wanted to impress the actress by killing President Ronald Reagan. Sandford reportedly spent thousands of dollars on robots sold by the TV show starting at the age of 15. However, Sandford’s sources of income have not been explained. He was in the United States illegally, having overstayed his tourist visa. He was said to be homeless and living in his car.

Sandford drove from Los Angeles to Las Vegas to assassinate trump at the Treasure Island Hotel and Casino theater. Sandford had tickets for Trump’s appearance in Las Vegas and a later campaign stop in Phoenix, where he intended to try to shoot Trump if he was not able to make an attempt in Las Vegas. Sandford, a white teen from an English-speaking country, did not meet the profile of a Trump assassin. Trump’s rhetoric against Muslims and Mexicans would have envisaged a different type of assassin for Secret Service and FBI profilers. Law enforcement did not explain where Sandford obtained the funds to travel to the United States from Britain and pay for the car and gasoline used to stalk Trump. Sandford is said to have visited a Las Vegas firing range the day before he tried to kill Trump. Sandford’s firing of a 9 millimeter Glock pistol was reportedly the first time he ever fired a weapon.

Neither did law enforcement reveal how Sandford managed to fund his entire stay of 18 months in the United States, a visit that started in Hoboken, New Jersey and ultimately ended up in the Ontario-San Bernardino area of southern California. Nor was there any explanations about where Sandford obtained the money to buy a 2007 BMW 328i, which he used to drive cross-country. Some British news reports suggest that Sandford tried to sell all of his robots for £1500. However, that would not be nearly enough for an airline ticket, a BMW, gasoline, and food to travel across the United States in an 18 month-long odyssey to carry out a plot to assassinate Trump. When Sandford was arrested, law enforcement discovered his British driver’s license. But no mention was made of his British passport that would have been a requirement to enter the United States.

Hoboken police have not yet determined where Sandford lived in the city just across the Hudson River from Manhattan. Nor have the police figured out what Sandford was doing in Hoboken in the first place.

Federal prosecutors in Las Vegas and British law enforcement officials confirmed that Sandford suffered from “mental issues” with British authorities claiming Sandford had an obsessive compulsive disorder and had been treated at an English hospital. If so, how did Sandford escape being included on the U.S. no-fly list as a potential threat to a U.S.-bound airplane and its passengers and crew?

Sandford’s mental problems and fascination for robots leads to some uncomfortable questions. Was Sandford’s robot fixation a result of his own programming to be an assassin. The Central Intelligence Agency’s MK-ULTRA program included the programming of assassins whose actions would be triggered by suggestive phrases, people, or things. For Hinckley, it was Jodie Foster. For Mark David Chapman, it was John Lennon, who he eventually killed. For Bremer, Chapman, and others, it was also J.D. Salinger’s novel “Catcher in the Rye.” For Sandford, was the trigger the robots in “Robot Wars?”…

McClatchyDCCIA chief: IS working to send operatives to the West


Wayne Madsen Report (June 13) – Orlando shooter’s father has definite CIA links. The link between Orlando and Boston is spelled C-I-A

There is one major commonality between the jihadist terrorist attacks on a gay nightclub in Orlando on June 13 and on the Boston Marathon in 2013 and that is the Central Intelligence Agency. Ever since the ill-conceived CIA-led war against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan in the 1980s and the agency’s incubation of the most violent extremes of Islam, the United States and other countries have faced constant “blowback” from U.S. support for jihadist terrorists. The older Boston Marathon bomber brother — Tamerlan Tsarnaev — and the Orlando club shooter Omar Mateen (aka Seddique Mateen) were investigated by the FBI on more than a single occasion.

The uncle of Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Ruslan Tsarni (aka Tsarnaev) had been linked to the CIA. Tsarni was married to the daughter of Graham Fuller, one of the chief CIA architects of the radicalization of Muslims to act as radical foot soldiers for the United States, whether in Afghanistan against the Soviets or in the Caucasus against Russia. Mir Seddique, aka Mir Seddique Mateen, the father of Omar Mateen, is a self-styled leader of a government-in-exile of Afghanistan that is based in Port St. Lucie, Florida. The father’s operation, using a Florida not-for-profit company called “The Durand Jirga, Inc.” mirrors traditional CIA fronts in southern Florida existing for decades to overthrow governments from Cuba and Nicaragua to Venezuela and the Dominican Republic. Mir Seddique hosted a television program called the “Durand Jirga Show.” The show is broadcast on the Afghan satellite network “Payam-e-Afghan,” which is headquartered in Los Angeles and broadcasts in Pashto and Persian. Payam-e-Afghan’s Facebook page indicates a link between the network and the Fethulleh Gulen organization’s Rumi Awards. Gulen, a Turkish industrialist who lives in Pennsylvania and is an opponent of Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has been linked to the CIA…

(June 14) – Father of Orlando shooter part of U.S. pro-Taliban CIA/VOA network

Seddique Mir Mateen, the presidential pretender of Afghanistan and father of Orlando nightclub shooter Omar Mateen, is part of a pro-Taliban network of Afghan and Pakistani propagandists who use the television and radio networks funded by the CIA-influenced Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) to spread their messages to audiences throughout the world…

Mateen claims he maintains his own intelligence network, but this appears to be a reference to his CIA and Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) friends who are involved in South Asia’s propaganda war using satellite programs broadcast in Pashto — major languages of Afghanistan and Pakistan, Mateen’s broadcast language Dari, and Urdu…

Even after the 9/11 terrorist attack on the United States, the VOA’s Pashto service gave a propaganda platform to the Afghan Taliban.

After the September 11 attack, Spozhmai Maiwandi, the director of the Voice of America’s Pashtun service, jokingly nicknamed “Kandahar Rose” by her colleagues, aired favorable reports on the Taliban, including a controversial interview with Taliban leader Mullah Omar. It should not be surprising, therefore, that Seddique Mir Mateen’s own views side with those of the Taliban. The presence of a number of pro-Taliban Afghan-Americans in the United States was facilitated by the CIA’s support for the mujaheddin cause in the Afghan jihadist war with the Soviet Union in the 1980s. Even Afghan-American diplomat Zalmay Khalilzad, the former U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan, Iraq, and the United Nations, served as a key interlocutor between the Taliban government of Afghanistan and the UNOCAL oil company in Houston in the late 1990s. Today, those links serve Khalilzad and the CIA well at the CIA-linked Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington, where Khalilzad serves as a counselor.

[As a side note: Donald Trump’s much celebrated April 27th foreign policy speech (C-SPAN) was introduced by none other than Zalmay Khalilzad. Back to Madsen…]

Since Omar Mateen’s massacre in Orlando, the VOA continues with its propaganda aimed against the United States. The following are just a few of the comments posted on Ashna TV’s Dari and Pashto Service’s webpage:

“I hope for a day when U.S. and Britain fall in the same level of blood and dust that Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon are.” – Feroz Sherzy.

Writing of Omar Mateen: “verry [sic] brave mane [sic]. action is great.” – Mahmoodullah Hamid of the Agha Khan Foundation in Afghanistan.

Some 60 percent of the comments on the Ashna TV website praised Omar Mateen and his actions in Orlando. And the American taxpayers fund this activity through their financial support for the VOA and BBG. And, as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton championed the expansion of these broadcast services. In 2011, Clinton testified before the House Foreign Affairs Committee that her department needed additional funds for the propaganda war. She said, “During the Cold War we did a great job in getting America’s message out. After the Berlin Wall fell we said, ‘Okay, fine, enough of that, we are done,’ and unfortunately we are paying a big price for it  . . .Our private media cannot fill that gap.”

The radical messages broadcast by Payame Afghan and Ashna TV are the results of Mrs. Clinton’s efforts to expand U.S. propaganda broadcasting. For the CIA, keeping expatriates like Seddique Mir Mateen and his pro-Taliban colleagues at the VOA on the government dole is to ensure a ready supply of interlocutors and agents-of-influence is available to Langley should the Taliban, once again, take over control of Afghanistan.

…WMR has been informed by a very good source in Manhattan that Trump, while sitting next to his underage daughter Ivanka at the Trump Grill in Manhattan’s Trump Tower, was witnessed by waiters on a number of occasions with his hand under her dress and fondling her genitalia. Some of these waiters have stated they would swear out affidavits about what they saw. After Ivanka became of age, Trump told Playboy magazine, “. . . if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.” Eventually Ivanka married Jared Kushner of the very wealthy Orthodox Jewish and ultra-Zionist Kushner real estate family of New York…


Tis the season of dirty tricks. While we do question the provenance of the anti-Trump rioters (top of our June 3 edition), this looks like it could be a Roger Stone hoax…

Just days before the California primary, with Bernie rapidly gaining on and surpassing Hillary in polls (L.A.Times), the question must be posed, qui bono from the actions of the unruly youth in San Jose, the so-called social justice warriors – associated as they are in the public eye with the Sanders campaign. This isn’t about opposing Trump, nor does it help Bernie; ultimately, it only insures a victory for Clinton on Tuesday, nudging her delegate count over the 2383 needed and sealing her nomination for the Democratic ticket (barring indictments and such – more below)…

Press TVIsraeli deputy PM admits to visiting Aleppo secretly

Al JazeeraEx-Mossad head on Israel medical aid to al-Nusra Front

Wayne Madsen ReportJune 1-2, 2016 — Former Mossad chief admits to helping Al Qaeda branch in Syria

In an interview with the Qatar-based news network Al Jazeera, Efraim Halevy, the former head of Mossad confirmed what many in the Middle East and around the world already surmised: that Israel provided “tactical” assistance to Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian affiliate of Al Qaeda, throughout the Syrian civil war.

The fact that Halevy chose the Qatari government-funded Al Jazeera to make his revelation is even more noteworthy considering the fact that Qatar is also a major financial supporter of Jabhat al-Nusra and Al Qaeda in Syria.

Reports from UN observers in the Golan Heights confirmed regular contact between Israel Defense Force officers and armed Jabhat al-Nusra and Islamic State terrorists at the Syrian-Israeli border.

Halevy’s admission blows wide open the real reason the Obama administration is opposed to the release of the 28 pages from the 2002 joint Congressional inquiry on the intelligence failures that led to the 9/11 attack on the United States. WMR has spoken to sources familiar with the report’s content who have revealed that the footnotes, where the “devil is hiding in the details,” adds Israel, Qatar, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates, in addition to the obvious guilty state party, Saudi Arabia, to the list of countries linked to facilitating the deadliest single foreign attack on U.S. soil in American history…

Halevy’s comments add to what WMR previously reported about comments made in a private conversation by one of Halevy’s predecessors in Mossad that funding for the 9/11 attack was handled by the six largest US. banks in New York. The clear inference by the former Mossad chief was that the funding was well known to the Bush administration before the attack was carried out.

Halevy’s admission of a tactical alliance between Israel and a Syrian branch of Al Qaeda also explains the similar alliance between Israel and the 9/11 plotters in the months prior to the 2001 attack. The presence of hundreds of Israeli “art students,” “mall kiosk vendors,” and “furniture movers,” all of whom were Mossad agents, in close vicinity to the Arab airplane hijackers from 2000 to 2001 points to the Israeli-Al Qaeda tactical alliance being more enduring than it has been in Syria.

The real reason why Senator Charles Schumer and House Speaker Paul Ryan, in addition to Barack Obama, have erected significant barriers to the 28 pages being released in full is that they fear that the details buried in the footnotes will expose Israel and other Gulf states as responsible parties in the 9/11 attack. And if the proposed Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) became law, which it will not since Obama has promised to veto it, Israel and Saudi Arabia could find themselves stripped of sovereign immunity from lawsuits and facing thousands of plaintiffs in U.S. courts…
