Police in Norway are unable to establish a link between Anders Behring Breivik and the English football hooligan group infiltrated by British intelligence.
Janne Kristiansen, director of the Norwegian Police Security Service, told the BBC no proof has yet been found to link the English Defense League to Breivik.
“I can tell you, at this moment in time, we don’t have evidence or we don’t have indications that he has been part of a broader movement or that he has been in connection with other cells or that there are other cells,” she said.
It was reported on Tuesday that police had solicited the help of Scotland Yard to establish a link between the accused killer and so-called “far right” groups in the UK and Europe. A specialist unit was set-up in The Hague to investigate “known high-risk, rightwing extremists,” according to The Guardian.
“What we’ve seen is an active extremist scene across European countries, including the UK,” said Rob Wainwright, director of Europol, the European Union’s criminal intelligence agency. “There are some signs the extreme right have been more active, especially on the internet. They are more sophisticated and using social media to attract younger people.”

Suspicions of a wider conspiracy spread through the media after a manifesto attributed to Breivik surfaced.
The manuscript describes Breivik’s “mentor” as an Englishman he identifies as “Richard.” Breivik mentions a 2002 London meeting where a group of fellow extremists gathered to “reform” the Knights Templar Europe, a military group whose purpose was “to seize political and military control of western European countries and implement a cultural conservative political agenda,” according to The Guardian.
The manuscript attributed to Breivik describes the meeting attendants as “business or political leaders, some with families, most Christian conservatives, but also some agnostics and even atheists.” It claims participants came from across Europe and that his contact with them was arranged by a “Serbian crusader commander.”
The alleged connection to the English Defense League was claimed after it was revealed that Breivik visited London last year and met with them.
Stephen Lennon of the EDL told the media that his group is not connected to Breivik and the corporate media is “cherry-picking what they want to fit their agenda and demonizing our organization.”
Sky News report on supposed link between Breivik and the EDL.
The corporate media has attempted to characterize Breivik’s acts as the inevitable result of “far right” politics.
In the United States, the corporate media has worked overtime to connect the event to the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995. That terror event was attributed to patsy and government agent Timothy McVeigh.
Gary LaFree, director of the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism, or START, told CNN on Monday that “threat of domestic terrorist attacks in the United States similar to last week’s fatal bombing and assault in Norway is significant and growing,” despite a paucity of evidence.
According to LaFree, “extremist right-wingers – from Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh to a neo-Nazi accused of trying to bomb a Martin Luther King Day parade this year – have shown a willingness to target the public.”
CNN dredged up highly skewed statistics from the Southern Poverty Law Center to make its point that the so-called “far right” is a looming threat. “Right wing anti-government groups grew by 60% in 2010 over the previous year,” CNN claims, citing the stats.
The SPLC considers Second Amendment advocates and activists opposed to open borders and illegal immigration as “extremist right-wingers.”
The SPLC has played a far more intimate role in domestic terrorism than the people it attempts to demonize for exercising their right to protest and petition the government.
In 2003, the FBI revealed that the group had an informant – and possibly a provocateur – inside the the white supremacist compound at Elohim City along with documented intelligence operative Andreas Carl Strassmeier.
Elohim City was central to the Oklahoma City bomb plot, according to the government.
“If I told you what we were doing there, I would have to kill you,” Morris Dees, co-founder and chief trial counsel for the SPLC, said in response to media questions about the FBI revelation.
