Recycling al-Libi's Cock and Bull Story

It doesn't matter who is in Congress, be they Republican neocon or Democrat neolib, because the United States is in Iraq for the long haul, period. More troops will be sent, a few more billion squandered, contractors will come and go, as will flag-draped coffins out of Dover AFB, to say nothing of the horribly wounded at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda and hospitals around the country.

In the recent past, we were told all of this was necessary because Saddam was a bad man and, besides, the Iraqis deserve democracy, even if they can't get regular electricity or clean drinking water. This was the story we were told after it was discovered Saddam didn't have any weapons of mass destruction, even though the odd neocon or two still insists there are WMD in Iraq. It was easier to find Saddam in his spider hole, even though the Saddam on the hook is three inches shorter with crooked teeth than the Saddam we are used to seeing, shooting his rifle up in the air from a balcony in Baghdad.

Most Americans want the U.S. out of Iraq. But it will not happen. Because we now have proof al-Qaeda decided to use Iraq as Jihadi Central. “Iraq was chosen because it was the ‘weakest' Muslim country,” Ibn Sheikh al-Libi told Omar Nasiri, described as a “double agent” working for MI5, according to the Guardian. It seems MI5 is rife with so-called double agents, as such were present in Northern Ireland, pretending to be IRA bad guys, while others of the Muslim persuasion apparently crawled all over the Finsbury Park mosque in north London, including such luminaries as Abu Qatada, described as al-Qaeda's spiritual leader in Europe, and Haroon Rashid Aswat, billed as the London Bombing mastermind.

Since the Bush neocons have apparently run out of tall tales designed to scare people, they are falling back on the dubious story of Ibn al-Shaykh al-Libi. As you may recall, al-Libi, named such because he is from Libya, was a paramilitary trainer for al-Qaeda at the al-Khalden training camp in Afghanistan, supposedly where the patsies Zacarias Moussaoui and Ahmed Ressam, the so-called “Millennium Bomber,” trained.

As well, according to the official legend, al-Libi hung with Abu Zubaydah, one of Osama's closer homies, currently on vacation at Guantánamo Bay, as Rush Limbaugh described incarceration minus formal charge at the torture and Koran dunking facility. As most al-Qaeda types are obviously dim bulbs, al-Libi made the mistake of sticking around Afghanistan and getting himself caught by U.S. forces and thus, after a bit of interrogation, probably including liberal use of water boarding at Bagram, said there was a connection between Saddam Hussein, the next target on the neocon laundry list, and Osama. Both the CIA and DIA warned against using al-Libi's confession, as it lacked any credibility whatsoever, but the Bush neocons, unable to resist, and hunting high and low (mostly low) for any half way plausible pretext, used al-Libi's cock and bull story as an excuse to invade Iraq and subsequently kill over 650,000 people. In early 2003, a few weeks before the invasion, Colin Powell, who should have known better, as he often referred to the neocons as “fucking crazies,” recited al-Libi's fictional account before the United Nations.

As Omar Nasiri (not his real name) tells it, al-Libi was not as dim as previously deduced, for he “deliberately planted information to encourage the US to invade Iraq,” or so he told his “interrogators,” polite speak for our modern equivalent of Tomás de Torquemada. “What is new, if Nasiri is to be believed, is that the leading al-Qaida operative wanted to overthrow Saddam and use Iraq as a jihadist base. Nasiri also says that part of al-Qaida training was to withstand interrogation and provide false information,” quite a feat in human endurance, as few are able to withstand torture. More likely, al-Libi was simply telling his gaolers what they wanted to hear in order to make them stop.

In addition to buttressing the neocon story of evil Muslims taking over Saddam's realm, Omar Nasiri, who claims to have worked for French, British and German intelligence, has a book to sell, entitled Inside the Jihad. Nasiri “says the West still doesn't get it, that Westerners don't understand what he calls the jihadist movement won't be ended if the U.S. pulls out of Iraq. Instead, at the root of it, Nasiri says is reclaiming Jerusalem and a greater Muslim world,” Henry Schuster writes for CNN. In order to understand, Americans need to read his book. As an endorsement, Michael Scheuer, chief of the recently (supposedly) closed down Alec Station, otherwise known as the CIA's Osama bin Laden Unit, told CNN: “It's certainly more complete than anything I saw at the CIA,” quite an accomplishment, as the CIA made Osama what he is, or was before he died in December, 2001.

Meanwhile, as if a product of a concerted effort, the “head of Al Qaeda's Iraq branch, Abu Hamza al-Muhajer, said he has mobilized 12,000 fighters for a self-styled Islamic state of Iraq, in an audio message posted on Friday on the Internet,” reports AFP. “I thank the most stupid and worst president America—the country of slaves and drugs—has ever had for giving us this great historic opportunity,” the unauthenticated voice of al-Muhajer declared.

Last month, Sheikh Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, aka Abdullah Rashid al-Baghdadi, leader of Shura al-Mujahideen in Iraq, an organization allegedly forged out of al-Zarqawi's al-Qaeda in Iraq, was declared “emir” of the Islamic State in Iraq, a self-proclaimed Islamic nation carved out of the provinces of Anbar, Diyala, Kirkuk, Salahuddeen, Nineveh and parts of Babel and Waset. “Iraqi Salafi sources agree that Al-Qaeda leader number 2 Ayman Al-Zahawiri chaired a meeting in Pakistan two weeks ago to discuss the Al-Qaeda leadership issue in Iraq. The delegates who represented Bin Laden at the meeting insisted that an Iraqi Emir takes over the leadership in Iraq to avoid more cracks in Al-Qaeda in Mesopotamia,” reports Tactical Report Weekly Brief.

The point here, according to Lt. Gen. Michael D. Maples of the DIA, is that “Iraqi nationalists, ex-Baathists, former military, angry Sunni, Jihadists, foreign fighters and al-Qaeda” are creating an “overlapping, complex and multi-polar Sunni insurgent and terrorist environment,” according to the CIA's favorite newspaper, the Washington Post. CIA director Gen. Michael V. Hayden told the Senate Armed Services Committee, soon to be swamped with compliant Democrats, that the problem here is not only al-Qaeda, but Iran, “which is supporting even competing Shiite factions.”

Naturally, all of this will result in an increasing “satanic level of violence,” and thus the U.S. will be obliged to “stay the course,” even if that means it will be bivouacked at its spanking new bases at Tallil, al-Asad, Balad, Irbil and Qayyarah, and a spate of smaller “enduring bases,” sites designed “to offer quick-response air support to Iraqi ground forces,” according to the BBC.
