Illusory “al-Qaeda” Grabs Corporate Media News Cycle
Kurt Nimmo | February 16, 2007
As the video below argues, “al-Qaeda” does not exist, except in the overwrought imaginations of an undetermined number of “young, angry Muslim males.” And yet, thanks mostly to a script-reading corporate media, we are told “al-Qaeda” is a persistent and increasingly ominous threat. For instance, a Google News search this evening produces the following:
A threat has been issued by “the al-Qaeda Organization in the Arabian Peninsula” against “suppliers of oil to the United States around the world,” including Canada, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, and Venezuela, according to the Daily News . “The group said it was making the statements as part of Osama bin Laden's declared policy. It was not possible to verify independently that the posting was from the terror faction,” adds the Christian Science Monitor . In fact, Osama's “declared policy” is at least six years old, as the former CIA asset died in December, 2001, according to the Pakistan Observer .
In an effort to deal with its restive Muslim population, confined primarily to shabby Les cités as second-class citizens, “French antiterrorism police have arrested 11 people, most of them accused of connections to Iraqi insurgency recruitment rings linked to Al Qaeda,” according to the New York Times .
Naturally, nearly all terror bombings these days are the work of “al-Qaeda,” the organization named after a database. “A group claiming links to Al-Qaeda staged 7 near-simultaneous bomb attacks in Algeria Tuesday, targeting police in several towns east of Algiers,” reports the Associated Press . “Al-Qaeda in Islamic North Africa—the new name for the Salafist Group for Call and Combat, known by its French acronym GSPC—claimed responsibility for the attacks.”
“One of the men accused of masterminding the Madrid train bombings condemned the blasts that killed 191 people, as a Spanish court opened a trial into Europe's deadliest al-Qaeda-related attack,” Reuters tells us. “[Rabei Osman Sayed] Ahmed is one of four men the state attorney says heeded a call by al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in 2003 for people to attack countries that backed the US-led war in Iraq.” Never mind Emilio Suárez Trashorras, said at the time to have supplied 200kg of dynamite used in the bombs, “was in possession of the private telephone number of the head of Spain's Civil Guard bomb squad,” according to Edward Owen , citing Spanish news reports. Not surprisingly, the Spanish Guardia Civil is connected to the Intelligence and Information Command.
Ayman al-Zawahri , usually billed as “al-Qaeda number two,” or maybe it should be number one as Osama is pushing up daisies, tells us things we already know, for instance Bush the Minor “suffers from an addictive personality, and was an alcoholic” and is one of the world's “most notorious liars.” Not unlike Bibi Netanyahu and the Israelis, al-Zawahri prefers “the establishment of an Islamic state over all of Palestine and not for the establishment of a secularist state which will please America,” not that the secular PLO and Fatah pleased the United States, mesmerized by AIPAC and the “New York money men” mentioned a few weeks back by Wesley Clark. Of course, the Israelis really don't prefer the establishment of an Islamic state in Palestine, but the illusion of one projected on Palestine's prison walls.
In order to once again reaffirm the homegrown terrorist motif, Reuters reports that a man from Texas, Daniel Joseph Maldonado, aka Daniel Aljughaifi, “is being held in Houston on charges he trained with al Qaeda in Africa to overthrow the interim Somalian government,” a case described as “the first criminal prosecution of an American suspected of joining forces with Islamic extremist fighters in Somalia,” according to U.S. Assistant Attorney General Kenneth Wainstein. Interesting how this one dovetails so effortlessly with the recent neocon attack on Somalia, an egregious violation of international law, not that neocons do international law. Much to the glee of neocon blogger Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs fame, it turns out Maldonado kept a blog , thus adding a bit of color to this blown out of shape story and no doubt providing no shortage of grist to the neocon cheerleader mill.
Finally, apparently itching to build Abu Ayyub al-Masri, aka Abu Hamza al-Muhajir, up to the stature of his predecessor, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, we are told the “leader of al Qaeda in Iraq” was “wounded by Iraqi troops in a clash north of Baghdad.” According to Rupert Murdoch's Sky News , citing Iraq's state-run al-Iraqiya television channel, Masri “fled in fright,” thus obviously surviving to live another day and haunt headlines at some point in the future, as the “al-Qaeda” story lives on, at least for a generation or two, as the neocons promise total war for our children's children and beyond.
