A group connected to government insiders says it intercepted a communiqué published in Arabic, English and French claiming responsibility for the deadly attacks in Paris on Friday.
The message allegedly from the “Islamic State’s Telegram account and then distributed via their supporters on Twitter,” according to The New York Times, characterizes the attacks as “the first of the storm” and says France is the “capital of prostitution and obscenity.”
“The statement was released on the same Telegram channel that was used to claim responsibility for the crash of a Russian jet over the Sinai Peninsula two weeks ago, killing 224 people. As in that case, it made the announcement in multiple languages and audio recordings.”
The message was allegedly discovered by the SITE Intelligence Group (Search for International Terrorist Entities), also known as SITE Intel Group.
One of SITE’s founders, Rita Katz, is a government insider with close connections to former terrorism czar Richard Clarke and his staff in the White House, as well as investigators in the Department of Justice, Department of the Treasury, and the Department of Homeland Security, according to SourceWatch.
In 2007, following a series of patently fake Osama bin Laden videos, Infowars reported on SITE’s relationship with the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) at Johns Hopkins University.
The former dean of SAIS is Paul Wolfowitz, the former Deputy Secretary of Defense during the Bush administration. Wolfowitz is a key neocon and the architect of the so-called Bush Doctrine.
Along with fellow neocons Richard Perle, Douglas Feith (who ran the Iraq war propaganda machine), David Wurmser and others in the Pentagon and the administration, neocon insiders advanced the principles of the “A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm” document prepared in 1996 by a study group led by Perle for Benjamin Netanyahu, at the time Prime Minister of Israel.
“The document created by the Study Group on a New Israeli Strategy Toward 2000 called for overthrowing Saddam Hussein and waging a proxy war against al-Assad in Syria,” we explain in ISIS and the Plan to Balkanize the Middle East.
In 2006 an image-compression analysis on a video released by the Intelcenter concluded its logo was added at the same time as the As-Sahab logo. As-Sahab is supposedly the video production house of al-Qaeda.
