The RAND Corporation is working with the CIA, the FBI, the National Counterterrorism Center and the Department of Homeland Security to hustle the next phase in the the perpetual war on manufactured terrorism — American born and bred terrorists, trained by al-Nusra in Syria, returning home to wage jihad in the heartland.
Officialdom in the United States is spotlighting a reported suicide truck bombing allegedly conducted by an unidentified American in the northern province of Idlib. Jihadist social media, according to The New York Times, claim the young man went by the name Abu Huraira al-Amriki.
It is important to note role played by The New York Times in promulgating this latest propaganda. The newspaper has served as a faithful conduit for war and terror propaganda since Judith Miller collaborated with the Bush neocons to disseminate the “intelligence failures” that resulted in the murder of over a million Iraqis. Due to this past history as a facilitator of war mongering and crimes, this latest news by the Times should be taken with a grain of salt.
From the Times on Wednesday:
Islamic extremist groups in Syria with ties to Al Qaeda have been trying to identify, recruit and train Americans and other Westerners who have traveled there to get them to carry out attacks when they return home, according to senior American intelligence and counterterrorism officials.
These efforts, which the officials say are in the early stages, are the latest challenge that the conflict in Syria has created, not just for Europe but for the United States. The civil war has become a magnet for Westerners seeking to fight with the rebels against the Assad government.
The report of a mysterious American working with al-Nusra — the archetypal Syrian terror group receiving indirect aid from the CIA and its Saudi and Qatari partners — is a “potential game changer,” according to Seth Jones, a terrorism expert at the RAND Corporation.
“It indicates that Americans are honing their ability to conduct terrorist attacks,” Jones told the Times. He speculated this supposedly fine-tuned ability may be used soon within the United States.
RAND’s Connection to the CIA and the War Machine
RAND’s role in the latest effort by the national security state and its propaganda media to reinvigorate and extend the war on terror should not be dismissed lightly. RAND is a preeminent covert warfare strategy institution deeply embedded within the military, industrial and intelligence complex.
“Covert foreign policy became the standard mode of operation after World War II, which was also when Ford Foundation became a major player for the first time,” writes Rene Wormser, (Foundations: Their Power and Influence, p65-66). “The institute most involved in classified research was Rand Corporation, set up by the Air Force in 1948. The interlocks between the trustees at Rand, and the Ford, Rockefeller, and Carnegie foundations were so numerous that the Reece Committee listed them in its report (two each for Carnegie and Rockefeller, and three for Ford). Ford gave one million dollars to Rand in 1952 alone, at a time when the chairman of Rand was simultaneously the president of Ford Foundation.”
The Ford Foundation has long served as a CIA front. “The Ford Foundation’s history of collaboration and interlock with the CIA in pursuit of U.S. world hegemony is now a well-documented fact,” writes James Petras.
The connection of a shadowy and nameless American to terrorists indirectly supported by the CIA in Syria is a classic example of the problem, reaction, solution methodology.
The CIA and its partners in Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey systematically created various al-Qaeda-esque terror groups, inserted them inside Syria to undermine an unfavorable government there, and subsequently nurtured an incubator of radical jihadist terror that will ultimately be used in the United States to magnify the domestic terror meme.
The national security state and its surveillance and police state apparatus, predicated on the vastly exaggerated threat of Islamic terror, requires actual terrorist actors in order to successfully accomplish its goal of converting the United States into a mature electronic panopticon.
The purpose of this apparatus is not to discover and prevent terror attacks, but rather conduct pervasive surveillance on the American people. As the Occupy Wall Street movement discovered, the national security state will now actively collaborate with its incorporated state and local partners in an effort to subvert any challenge to the establishment.
This increasingly ruthless pattern of behavior — including using the military and killer drones on citizens — by the global elite in league with international banks and a panoply of transnational corporations once again reveals the length they will go to dominate and control institutions and government and suppress the political aspirations of the American people.
