Alton Nolan, the man accused of beheading a coworker in Oklahoma City, attended a mosque run by an iman tied to Anwar al-Awlaki, the al-Qaeda operative who dined at the Pentagon a few months after the 9/11 attacks.
Suhaib Webb presided over the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, a mosque attended by Nolan, and currently serves as the iman of a sister organization in Boston, according to Breitbart. The Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center, located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is connected to the alleged Boston Marathon bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
Zubeidat K. Tsarnaeva, the mother of Dzhokar and Tamerlan, said last April her eldest son Tamerlan was under the control of the FBI. “How could this happen?… They were controlling every step of him, and they are telling today that this is a terrorist attack,” she said. In addition to the FBI, the CIA was apparently also monitoring Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
The FBI is notorious for recruiting and framing terror patsies. A report compiled by Mother Jones and the Investigative Reporting Program at the University of California-Berkley found that of the 158 prosecutions carried out on terrorism charges since 9/11, 49 defendants participated in plots that were arranged by FBI agent provocateurs. “They’re creating crimes to solve crimes so they can claim a victory in the war on terror,” explained Martin Stolar, a lawyer who represented a suspect involved in a New York City bombing plot contrived by FBI agents.
FBI documents state “Webb and Awlaki may be associated with the Muslim American Society,” an organization reportedly “founded as the United States Chapter of the Muslim Brotherhood,” according to the Investigative Project on Terrorism.
The Muslim Brotherhood has served as an intelligence asset for nearly a century. According to former British intelligence agent John Coleman, the organization as created by the British to “keep the Middle East backward so that its natural resource, oil, could continue to be looted.” The organization was also used by the CIA to fight against Egyptian leader and Arab nationalist Gamal Nasser and other secular forces.
Currently there is no evidence Alton Nolan was an FBI patsy. However, the suspicious connections of Suhaib Webb and past incidents of terror operations run out of mosques in the United States and Britain warrant more investigation.
On Saturday, the FBI insisted there are no connections to Nolan and terrorists. “A law enforcement official familiar with the investigation told the AP that while there was indication that Nolan was a Muslim convert and was trying to convert others to Islam, there is so far no connection to terrorism and no evidence of any worrisome travel,” the Associated Press reports.
Despite caution by the FBI and the government, the incident is certainly feeding into the propaganda effort directed against Muslims as the United States escalates its war against ISIS, a war predicted to last indefinitely.
