Khorasan, the shadowy terror group worse than al-Qaeda and ISIS, has taken a prominent role in the information operation attached to Obama’s unconstitutional attack in Syria.
On Tuesday the group was bombed along with ISIS in Syria. “We had very good indications that this group, which is a very dangerous group, was plotting and planning imminent attacks against Western targets to include the U.S. homeland and it was on that basis that we struck targets, Khorasan targets inside Syria,” Pentagon spokesperson Rear Admiral John Kirby told George Stephanopolous of ABC News.
“Unlike ISIS, which is believed at present to be largely engulfed in its fight for territory. Khorasan is developing fresh plots to target U.S. aviation, and it’s trying to recruit Westerners who have flocked to the fight in Syria, some of whom have joined the al Qaeda franchise in the country, known as the al-Nusra Front… The fear is that U.S. and European passport holders could more easily smuggle explosives onto airplanes,” said former CIA deputy director Mike Morell last week.
At the time we asked why the government concealed the supposed Khorasan threat to aviation after Obama’s ISIS war speech and after weeks of hyperventilating about the terror threat by the establishment media and neocon members of Congress.
Only the United States government and its intelligence agencies are aware of Khorasan and they have not provided evidence to verify that it and a threat to aviation actually exist.
The unsubstantiated Khorasan threat is perfectly timed to coincide with the ISIS threat. It will be used as a multiplier as the United States intensifies its ISIS war.
Khorasan will now feature prominently in the propaganda narrative as the United States and its partners – Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Jordan, Qatar – further terrorize the people of Syria.
The U.S. engineered “civil war” designed to take out the al-Assad government has partially accomplished the goal of turning Syria into a failed state and Obama’s war on ISIS will further this agenda.
According to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency the U.S. engineered and Saudi funded “conflict is squandering humanity through violence, fear and destruction that has inflicted multi-dimensional socioeconomic harm across all aspects of people’s lives, livelihoods and habitat from which few Syrian households have escaped unscathed.”
Syrian human development regressed by more than four decades during the conflict. With a Human Development Index measure of 0.472, Syria has fallen from the “medium human development” cluster of nations into the “low human development” group, largely as a result of weakening performance in education, health and income.
Obama’s ISIS war will exacerbate this situation. Khorasan will push the propaganda envelope with an unsubstantiated threat on the American homeland. It will be used to justify increased violence and “collateral damage” inflicted on civilians.
