Wayne Madsen Report – September 21-22, 2015 — ISIL’s top leaders trained by the U.S.


The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s (ISIL) top military commanders were trained by the United States. Specifically, the training involved the U.S. mercenary firm Blackwater USA, now known as Academi; the U.S. Special Operations Command; and the Central Intelligence Agency.

In 2006, top ISIL field commander Abu Omar al-Shishani, aka “Omar the Chechen” and born Tarkhan Tayumurazovich Batirashvili to an Orthodox Christian father and a Pankisi Gorge Muslim mother, received military training in the United States while he was a sergeant in the army of the Republic of Georgia, a major recipient of the largesse of the Pentagon’s “train and equip” operations. It was “train and equip” that was used to provide weapons and training to the terrorist Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) during its military operations against Serbia and Macedonia. A number of KLA guerrillas reportedly are now fighting with ISIL forces in Syria and Iraq.

Al-Shishani fought against Russian forces in Chechnya in 2012 and his path in the radical Islamist Pankisi Gorge of Georgia may have crossed with that of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, one of the accused brothers in the Boston Marathon bombing. Tsarneav traveled in 2012 to Russia’s Dagestan republic as well as to Georgia. 2012 saw the U.S. begin the training of ISIL and Al Qaeda mercenaries in Safawi, Jordan. Jihadist recruits from the Caucasus, Europe, western China, the United States, and the Middle East and North Africa were welcomed with open arms by the CIA, as well as Turkish and Jordanian intelligence.

ISIL’s Aleppo combatants have received military support from the U.S.-financed commander of the Aleppo region’s quite fictitious “Free Syrian Army,” Abdul Jabbar al-Okaidi. The forces of al-Okaidi and ISIL have coordinated their attacks on forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. In fact, ISIL troops volunteered to fight under al-Okaidi’s command…

Syria’s jihadist army was groomed by the former U.S. ambassador to Syria Robert Ford who cut his teeth in the support for terrorism in the 1980s while working alongside then-U.S. ambassador John Negroponte to Honduras. Ford was responsible for supporting the Honduran death squads during the covert contra war against neighboring Nicaragua. Ford’s two successors as envoys to the Syrian rebels, Daniel Rubinstein and Michael Ratney, are no less committed to the jihadist cause. All three envoys have closely coordinated their support for ISIL and its partners with the Israeli government, which has provided significant support to the anti-Assad forces in Syria, including Jabhat al Nusra and ISIL. Then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ordered two State Department officials, Jared Cohen and Alec J. Ross, in helping Ford to recruit the most violent extremists to the anti-Assad coalition in Syria. It should come as no shock that all the State Department officials responsible for the rise of ISIL in Syria — Ford, Rubinstein, Ratney, Cohen, and Ross — are all pro-Israeli Zionists committed to Israel’s long term goals of fracturing the Arab nation-states into feuding warring and sheikdoms and mini-states.

Two of Al Qaeda’s chief propagandists, Adam Yahiye Gadahn, aka Adam Pearlman (the grandson of Anti-Defamation League director Carl Pearlman) and Joseph Leonard Cohen, a former resident of Israel who changed his name to Yousef al-Khattab, were Jewish. Zachary Adam Chesser was arrested and convicted of trying to board a plane for Somalia to join the Al Qaeda affiliate the Al Shabaab movement. Cohen and Chesser worked together to recruit jihadists to fight in the Middle East and commit terrorist attacks on various targets, including Jewish establishments. Cohen started a website called Jews for Allah, which sought to recruit Jews for the jihad. He then started the Revolutionary Muslim website that sought recruits for the jihadist wars in the Middle East and elsewhere. Cohen was sentenced to a mere two and a half-years for his work for Al Qaeda and company. Chesser received a 25-year sentence…

Top ISIL field commander in Syria Colonel Gulmurod Khalimov, the former commander of Tajikistan’s OMON special operations force, defected earlier this year to ISIL. According to the U.S. embassy in Dushanbe, Tajikistan, Gulmurod received training in the United States on “staff organization and planning, orders production, mission analysis and the military decision making process, intelligence preparation of the battlefield (IPB), direct action (raids and ambushes), special reconnaissance, close quarters combat/battle (CQC/B), sniper/observe operations, military operations in urban terrain (MOUT), and tactical communications and basic combat life saving.” Khalimov and his troops also received weapons and other military equipment from the United States…

If ISIS is a creation of US intelligence, is it now leaving the reservation?…

Al MonitorIS has big plans for gold currency

IS said the United States deceived the world. According to the film’s content, in 1913, the United States established the Federal Reserve Bank and pledged to pay gold on demand for the dollar. However, following World War I the United States switched from the gold standard to a flat greenback currency at the local level. After gold flowed to the United States from several countries in the world — as a result of World War I and World War II — the United States created a new system governing banking and foreign exchange called Bretton Woods to maintain the dollar’s convertibility into gold at the international level. However, in 1971, President Richard Nixon suspended the dollar’s convertibility into gold. The Bretton Woods system dissolved between 1968 and 1973, according to the International Monetary Fund. According to IS, the United States maintained its currency in a “satanic way” by using oil, described by the United States as black gold, and forced countries to buy and sell oil in dollars through the petrodollar system.

It is unclear where all the gold will come from, however. The film is posted at the Al-Hayat Media Center, which is of uncertain backing, but said to be run by a former German rapper “Deso Dogg,” and has been associated with Rita Katz’s Search for International Terrorist Entities (SITE) which has long been held under suspicion for manufacturing false flag propaganda – these “doggs and katz” aren’t so cuddly. (See William Engdahl in Near Eastern OutlookIs Former Israeli IDF Officer Behind Fake Videos of Beheadings?.) With ISIS now spouting sound money rhetoric not too far off from that of a Ron Paul, we might wonder if there is an effort afoot to discredit critics of fiat currency. In the period leading up to his overthrow, Muammar Qadaffi had been making similar efforts to establish a gold backed Dinar on behalf of the embryonic United States of Africa. If the Islamic State claims are credible then, we should expect the effort to fight IS ramp up substantially in the coming weeks and months.

Things are ramping up against IS, but from unexpected quarters…

If, as the above cited WMR article argues, ISIS is the CIA/Mossad/NATO proxy army in the Middle East, Putin then has chosen this as the battle ground in which to engage the West, rather than being drawn into the Ukrainian theater as his adversaries had hoped. A brilliant strategic move on his part, in as much as he demonstrates that Obama’s fight was just for show. Obama now is faced with the choice: he may cooperate with Putin and pretend ISIS was never the West’s proxy, or he may decide to double down and continue the clandestine support of ISIS. In doing the latter, however, he faces the grave risk of exposure. In either case, if ultimately effective in defeating ISIS, Putin then wins the good will of the Arab world, having built a true coalition of the willing, while splashing egg on Obama’s face…

Al MonitorPressure shifts to Iran to implement nuclear deal

The next JCPOA benchmark is “adoption day,” Oct.18, when Iran must begin to make changes in its nuclear infrastructure in compliance with the JCPOA, working with the International Atomic Energy Agency. US officials this week summarized what needs to happen before sanctions are lifted, including “taking out thousands of centrifuges and putting them into IAEA-monitored storage [at the Natanz enrichment facility) … taking out a very large amount of infrastructure, specifically some of the pipework and electrical infrastructure that allows for the enrichment process to work; … ship out to another country the vast majority of their enriched uranium stockpile; … take out about two-thirds of its centrifuges and associated infrastructure, and here again we’re talking about the physical dismantling and removal of a large amount of pieces of equipment, pipework, electrical infrastructure, and things like that [at the Fordow facility]; … the center of that [Arak heavy water] reactor, the calandria, is going to be pulled out and filled with concrete so that it can’t be used again; … [putting] in place the increased transparency measures. So in this regard, we’re talking about new technologies that Iran has agreed to implement at its facilities; active electronic seals that will provide for much more real-time monitoring — systems that don’t exist anywhere else in the world that they’ll have to iron out, including online enrichment monitoring, which tells the IAEA in essentially real time the enrichment level of different — of cascades that are operating. In addition, Iran needs to put in place transparency measures at its uranium mills so the IAEA has continuous monitoring about the material that’s coming out of the uranium mills to prevent conversion to a covert nuclear path and continuous monitoring at the centrifuge manufacturing facilities.”

It is bewildering to understand how Iran taking these measures somehow facilitates its path to a bomb, as critics claim.

However, he added that if he became President of the US he would not scrap the deal. Instead, he would heavily “police” it.

“It’s very hard to say, ‘We’re ripping it up,'” he said. “I would police that contract so tough that they don’t have a chance. As bad as the contract is, I will be so tough on that contract.”

Headlines of interest, early to mid September 2015…

Wayne Madsen ReportSeptember 11-14, 2015 — SPECIAL 9/11 REPORT ON STOCK PUT OPTIONS

In 2009, I sent a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the SEC asking for all relevant materials concerning a footnote in the 9/11 Commission report. Specifically, I told the SEC, I wanted to know if the newsletter cited in the report as being the ostensible cause behind the placement of put options on airliners might have any connection to Baltimore. Several months later, I got a letter back stating that all relevant records had been destroyed. I had waited eight years to make my request, because it had been announced that such 9/11 records were to be sealed for that amount of time. Now the SEC was alleging that the records, important enough to seal for eight years, were destroyed.

This year, some of the facts I was seeking have come to light. Documents have surfaced through other FOIA attempts that confirmed my suspicion that the newsletter company that published the seemingly well-timed advice to short airline stocks was indeed Agora Publishing, headquartered in the Mount Vernon section of Baltimore.

It has been asserted numerous times, but never definitively confirmed, that the infamous airline put options were primarily placed through Alex Brown & Sons in Baltimore, a subsidiary of Deutsche Bank. On 9/11, a former chairman of Alex Brown, A. B. Krongard, was the sitting executive director of the CIA. Krongard was well-known around Baltimore to have a handful of close proteges who had thrived under his tutelage. One, Mayo Shattuck III, was CEO of Alex Brown on 9/11 and was suddenly not its CEO a few days later, having unexpectedly resigned on 9/12/01 or perhaps 9/13. Another, Carter Beese Jr., was a venture capitalist who went to work as a commissioner at the SEC and had also served as president of Riggs Capital Partners. Beese was found hanging by a dog leash in a kitchen of a bungalow along Pacific Coast Highway in California in April 2007. The third, Gregory Barnhill, a career investment banker, also allegedly committed suicide in September of 2012. Barnhill was a founding partner of Agora Publishing and was listed as treasurer of it board of directors up until his death…

A 1996 Baltimore Sun article describing the launch of the International Youth foundation contains the following sentence: “The party was sponsored by Alex. Brown & Sons, which was represented by its chairman and CEO, A.B. “Buzzy” Krongard and his wife, Pat, as well as firm members J. Carter Beese and Greg Barnhill.”

The implication here is clear. For years, 9/11 researchers have tried to tie the suspicious transactions to Buzzy Krongard’s circle of influence. Now we see that the official explanation for the transactions (or alibi, if you prefer) – a newsletter called “Options Hotline” (a California-based Agora title) – can also be tied to Krongard’s circle of influence.

For 9/11 researchers, a new burning question is whether the original investigators realized this connection and documented it anywhere. The newly unearthed documents claim the SEC interviewed or examined 55 people who purchased puts. Did they inquire if these individuals had any relationship with Greg Barnhill and/or Agora beyond being simple newsletter subscribers?

Shanghaiist1 dead after explosion hits another chemical plant in Shandong

Wayne Madsen ReportSeptember 1-2, 2015 — Third Chinese plant explosion: definite sabotage

WMR’s sources clinched what is happening in formerly Japanese-occupied parts of northeastern China when a mega-blast wiped out a large part of the port area of Tianjin, killing almost 200 people and leaving a scene reminiscent of the aftermath of the atomic bombings by the United States of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. They concluded that the Tianjin blast was state-sponsored sabotage with the perpetrators militarist factions within the Japanese government, military, and intelligence services and loyal to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s revanchist imperial policies.

The Tianjin blast, which witnesses said was like a nuclear blast, was followed by a second blast at a chemical factory in Zibo city in Shandong province. On the evening of August 31, a third blast struck Shandong, lighting up the night sky of the city of Donying with yet another explosion. At about the same time as the explosion in Donying, a fire broke out in Tianjin at the site of last month’s mega-blast.

There is a saying that when it comes to back-to-back incidents like those in Tianjin and Shandong, one is an unfortunate accident, two is a terrible tragedy, and three is sabotage.

The three blasts in a part of China that was once colonized by Japanese imperialists came as Beijing is preparing to host world leaders at a massive military parade marking the victory of the Allies over the Axis powers. Just as the United States and its NATO allies boycotted a similar parade in Moscow in May marking the Soviet victory over fascism, Washington and Tokyo have applied pressure on various countries, including every European Union country except for the Czech Republic to boycott the Beijing commemoration… [much more behind the paywall]
