Nice/Munich terror suspect Einat Wilf linked to false-flag-loving WINEP

They aren’t even trying to hide it any more

Nice/Munich terror suspect Wilf works with Patrick Clawson, who openly calls for murderous false flag attacks

By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor

What kind of a world are we living in when false flag terrorists, drunk on chutzpah, don’t even bother to wipe their fingerprints off the murder weapons…and openly brag about their love of false flags, publicly calling for more of them?

As I have been reporting over the past few days, high-ranking Israeli operator Einat Wilf’s husband, Richard Gutjahr—who flagrantly vaunted his foreknowledge of the Nice truck attack by filming the truck at the perfect moment just before it started mowing people down—was also caught on location filming the shopping mall attack in Munich.

Mossad photographer Richard Gutjahr was pre-positioned in both Nice AND Munich! Talk about chutzpah...

When I reported Gutjahr’s self-incriminating Munich tweets (and the use of his photo in an RT piece on Munich) those tweets, and the photo at RT, suddenly were taken down within an hour of when my story appeared. Even such shameless chutzpah apparently has its limits.

Now we learn that Gutjahr’s wife/case officer Einat Wilf is the “Baye Foundation Adjunct Fellow” at a brazenly pro-false-flag-terror think tank, the Washington Institute of Near East Policy (WINEP). That’s also the home of Richard “Prince of Darkness” Perle, Edward “Zionist Coup d’Etat: A Practical Handbook” Luttwak, Henry “Almost 9/11 Commission Czar” Kissinger, Condoleeza “Who Could Have Imagined” Rice, and other key 9/11 suspects.

The arrogance and shallowness of the rich: Trump.

Now that the White House released the “dreaded birth certificate” that Trump insisted there was something on it that the President did not want anyone to see, Trump should eat his shoe and STFU.

Responding to the development, Trump said, “I have accomplished something nobody else has accomplished.”

“I want to look at it, but I hope it’s true,” he told reporters in New Hampshire. “He should have done it a long time ago. I am really honored to have played such a big role in hopefully getting rid of this issue.”

What? Played a big role in what? Making a fool of yourself Donald Duck?

A USA Today/Gallup opinion poll  sample that was asked if Donald Trump was born in the US, produced this result:

For what it’s worth, not everyone is convinced Trump was born in the USA either: 43% say he definitely was born here, and 20% say he probably was; 7% say he definitely or probably was born in another country. Nearly three in 10 say they don’t know enough to say.

More nonsense from Donald Trump earlier

Why he didn’t do it when the Clintons asked for it, I don’t know.

That’s just a flat untruth. The Clintons never asked for Obama’s birth certificate to be published – although some suggest the origins of the birther argument came from the Clinton campaign during the 2008 primaries. Whether or not that is true, what is true is that the birthers set sail under their own wind long ago.

FactCheck.org Clarifies Barack’s Citizenship

“When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4,1961, in Honolulu, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdom’s dwindling empire. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.‘s children.

Since Sen. Obama has neither renounced his U.S. citizenship nor sworn an oath of allegiance to Kenya, his Kenyan citizenship automatically expired on Aug. 4,1982.”

Although the US did not explicitly condone nor condemn the GCC’s (Gulf Cooperation Council) latest decision to sanction the deployment of its forces into the island kingdom, the Barack Obama administration has taken a cautious approach to the growing protests there so as not to undermine the opposition parties’ demands or inadvertently strengthen Iran’s ability, real or imagined, to leverage the opposition leaders of Bahrain’s roughly 70 per cent Shia majority.

“We urge the government of Bahrain to pursue a peaceful and meaningful dialogue with the opposition rather than resorting to the use of force,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said in a statement Sunday. “In particular, we urge our GCC partners…to act in a way that supports dialogue instead of undermining it.”

 

This is the exact same verbiage (or garbage) the U.S. Administration uses with Israel: “We urge the Israelis and Palestinians to pursue peace talks..” while the Israelis massacre, expel, ethnic cleanse and annex Palestine using brutal and barbaric force, courtesy of the U.S. Tax Payers’ money.

  • When Saddam invaded Kuwait, the U.S. was quick in establishing a No Fly Zone and then invade Iraq to bring the country “democracy.”
  • When South Sudan wanted their freedom, U.S. and Mr. George Hypocrite Clooney rushed to the south’s aid and cries for Hypocrisy.. I mean, Democracy!
  • When Libyans are being massacred by a tyrant thug, responsible for heinous crimes against his own, let alone other people, as in Lockerbie,  and uses planes, tanks and poisonous gases to crush the people, we issue Bahrain-like statements.
  • When Yemeni’s are under daily attack by the most vicious of weapons: chemical gases that paralyze and send bodies into violent convulsions, we issue Bahrain-like statements.
  • When Palestinians wanted to establish their state and live in peace, the U.S. determined (under the direction of its masters, AIPAC Zionist thugs) that “the time wasn’t right” and vetoed the reolution that called for an independent state called Palestine!

In other words, we do not condemn the tyrants unless we are absolutely certain that they will be vacating their seats of power and tyranny. This is the U.S. foreign policy and democracy!

 

  • We preach Democracy and practice Tyranny!
  • We preach Peace and practice Destruction!
  • We preach Justice and practice Injustice!

 

 

Huge flames erupt from an explosion at Egyptian gas pipeline supplying
Israel and Jordan in El Arish, Egypt, February 05, 2011.

 

The Egyptian gas supply to Israel that has been disrupted since a February 5 pipeline explosion does not seem to be restored at its full capacity any soon.

Egypt’s East Mediterranean Gas Company has informed Tel Aviv authorities of a leak in one of its pipes in the El Arish area.

The news of further delay comes as the resumption of the vital gas supplies to Israel was expected to happen on Monday.

The flow of Egyptian natural gas to Israel was halted five weeks ago after an explosion in the Sinai pipeline at the peak of popular protests against ousted President Hosni Mubarak’s regime — which was seen as Tel Aviv’s closest Mideast ally.

Meanwhile, experts speculate that once the gas supply is resumed, Israel will not receive more than one-quarter of the quantity supplied before the pipeline explosion.

Israeli authorities have estimated the damage caused to Tel Aviv’s economy by the absence of Egyptian gas at $1.7 million a day.

Egypt has been supplying 40 percent of Israel’s natural gas, used to produce 20 percent of Israel’s electricity, since May 2008.

The Egyptian opposition is openly against the gas deal signed between Cairo and Tel Aviv under Mubarak in 2005.

ATW Comment:
Supplying the enemy of humanity and terrorist state of Israel is a mistake. As these thugs continue to defy all international laws, blockade Gaza, and now blockading Nablus while the settler degenerates attack Palestinians, annex lands, ethnic cleanse and kill and massacre civilians, Israel should not receive any gas from Egypt or any Arab country! As the Israelis blockade Palestinians, Egypt must boycott Israel and/or exporting anything to this thugs-infested country!
Egyptians and Jordanians should immediately nullify their so-called “peace” treaties. If Israel wants peace they must begin by halting and abolishing their Nazi-like conduct and withdrawing to 1967 borders. Period.

The Middle East peace process is in danger of falling victim to the revolutionary tide sweeping the Arab world, foreign secretary William Hague has warned.

Speaking on an emergency tour of the region, Mr Hague also urged Israel to tone down its “belligerent” language in the wake of the uprisings which have spread from Tunisia to Egypt and beyond.

The intervention came as the situation in Egypt intensified, with thousands of protesters again on the streets of Cairo demanding President Hosni Mubarak‘s immediate departure.

In an interview with The Times en route to Jordan, Mr Hague said: “Amidst the opportunity for countries like Tunisia and Egypt, there is a legitimate fear that the Middle East peace process will lose further momentum and be put to one side, and will be a casualty of uncertainty in the region.”

He added: “Part of the fear is that uncertainty and change will complicate the process still further. That means there is a real urgency for the Israelis and the United States.

“Recent events mean this is an even more urgent priority and that’s a case we are putting to the Israeli Government and in Washington.”

Mr Hague responded to pronouncements by Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu, who has been urging his nation to prepare for “any outcome” and vowing to “reinforce the might of the state of Israel”.

“This should not be a time for belligerent language,” the Foreign Secretary said. “It’s a time to inject greater urgency into the Middle East peace process.”

Despite two weeks of steadfast pressure, Egyptian protesters have not achieved their goal of ousting Mr Mubarak.

Yesterday, thousands of civilians – including about 5,000 university professors and teachers – packed Cairo’s Tahrir Square to continue their demonstrations calling for the president’s removal.

In Alexandria, the country’s second largest city, 18,000 people crammed into the main square, while some 3,000 service workers for the Suez Canal also demonstrated in Suez city.

Around 8,000 people also chanted anti Mubarak slogans in the southern city of Assuit.

The beleaguered president has refused to step down, insisting on serving until elections in September.

His regime offered more concessions to the protesters in hopes of appeasing them while keeping as firm a grip on power as it possibly can.

Vice president Omar Suleiman, who is managing the crisis, offered to set up committees to propose long-sought constitutional amendments and monitor the implementation of all proposed reforms. [of course this is The Independent’s view; the reality is as we see elsewhere, that this thug is a CIA/ Mossad favorite and does what he does to appease anyone but his people!]

Mr Mubarak also ordered a probe into last week’s clashes between the protesters and government supporters as well as mass detentions of human rights activists and journalists. [another lie and tactic…]

The mask has slipped badly from the two-faced Obama administration.  I have been reporting on the duplicity of the U.S. policy in Egypt since January 31 when President Obama sent a high-level C.I.A. man as personal envoy to manage the crisis.

The envoy’s father was Frank Wisner Sr., the infamous C.I.A. boss behind the overthrow in the 1950s of presidents in Iran and Guatemala.  Frank Wisner Jr., Obama’s “personal envoy” to Egypt, admitted on February 5 that he supported the Mubarak dictatorship staying in power – while Obama has been telling the world that he wanted immediate change.  This blatant duplicity reveals the true character of the Obama administration.

WHILE OBAMA SUPPORTED THE PRO-DEMOCRACY PROTESTORS…

AND CALLED FOR IMMEDIATE CHANGE…


“What is clear — and what I indicated tonight to President Mubarak — is my belief that an orderly transition must be meaningful, it must be peaceful, and it must begin now.” – President Obama, 2 February 2011

HIS PERSONAL ENVOY WAS SUPPORTING THE DICTATORSHIP

AND THE USE OF VIOLENCE AGAINST THE PROTESTORS.

“I’m extremely concerned, I mean this is yet another symptom, or another indication, of a criminal regime using criminal acts. My fear is that it will turn into a bloodbath.”

Mohamed ElBaradei, Egyptian opposition leader

“To the people of Egypt, particularly the young people of Egypt, I want to be clear: We hear your voices. I have an unyielding belief that you will determine your own destiny and seize the promise of a better future for your children and your grandchildren.”

– U.S. President Barack Obama, 1 February 2011


CAIRO, February 1 – Egyptian women join thousands of protestors at Tahrir Square demanding the end of the U.S.-supported Mubarak dictatorship.


More than 100,000 protesters had massed in the square by midday.


February 1 – Mubarak speaks on national television saying he will step down on – in September…


while Obama says Egypt’s change of leaders must start immediately.  “The status quo is not sustainable,” Obama said in comments given after Mubarak’s speech.  “An orderly transition must be meaningful, it must be peaceful, and it must begin now,” Obama said.  The Egyptian dictator has been America’s most reliable (read pro-Israel) ally in the Middle East for 30 years.  Mubarak has blocked much-needed relief from reaching the besieged Palestinians of Gaza, who share a mostly closed border with Egypt.  Photo – Barack Obama and Hosni Mubarak at the White House, 1 September 2010.

Mubarak has appointed his intelligence chief, C.I.A. “partner” Omar Suleiman, as vice president.  Suleiman is clearly the man who the C.I.A. hopes will replace Mubarak.  A senior U.S. intelligence official described Suleiman as deeply involved in every aspect of the diplomatic relationship between the two countries, as well as a C.I.A. partner in sensitive programs, including transfers and interrogations (read kidnap and torture) of prisoners captured in counterterrorism operations. As the C.I.A. point man in Egypt, Suleiman meets often Israeli leaders. Here he shakes hands with Ehud Barak, the war criminal who killed 1,400 civilians in Gaza as Barack Obama became president in January 2009.  At the time, Obama said he would have plenty to say about Israeli war crimes in Gaza – but has said nothing ever since.


President Barack Obama sent Frank Wisner of the C.I.A. (Vice Chairman of A.I.G. and director of Enron) to Egypt on January 31 to advise the besieged dictator Hosni Mubarak, who is quickly losing control of the nation.  Shortly after Obama’s “special envoy” arrived in Cairo, broadcasting equipment was confiscated from foreign journalists (including the BBC) and all roads and rail links to the capital were cut. This is a very dangerous game and reveals the two-faced nature of the Zionist-controlled Obama administration.  While Obama talks about supporting “democratic change”, he sends a “dirty tricks” man in a last-ditch effort to prevent the U.S.-funded dictatorship from falling.  This desperate and deceitful action by the Obama administration can only harm future relations with Egypt.

The Israeli war criminal and terrorist Ehud Olmert with Hosni Mubarak, the detestable 82-year-old tyrant of Egypt known for his support of U.S. and Zionist criminal policies against the Palestinian – and Egyptian people.

Mubarak and Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s prime minister from the extreme right-wing Likud Party.  The Zionist state depends on corrupt leaders in the Middle East (and the United States) for its survival.  Despite its claims to support democracy in the region, the prospect of a democratic state in Egypt is seen as a great threat to Israel.

This video shows the Egyptian police shooting a teenage protestor in cold blood.

The uprising in Tunisia has spread to Egypt, the most populous and important nation of the Arab world.  Massive protests with tens of thousands of people have also broken out in Yemen.  Having followed the developments in Tunisia closely on the BBC World Service, I noticed an attitude of unusual concern by the BBC toward the popular uprising that overthrew the Tunisian dictator Ben Ali.  When similar uprisings have happened in Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union, China, or Burma they have invariably been praised and promoted as a sign of the progress of western democracy.  This supportive attitude, however, was conspicuously lacking in the BBC coverage uprising in Tunisia.  The first question asked (with obvious concern) of every commentator was always, “Will the unrest in Tunisia spread to Egypt and other Arab nations?”

One got the distinct impression that the BBC is somehow afraid of democracy in the Arab world.  Their attitude seems to be that the people of the Middle East do not have the same right to demand democratic governments as the people of Europe.  Decades of U.S. (and British) support for dictators like Ben Ali and Hosni Mubarak and the refusal of the U.S. and the “international community” to accept the democratically elected Hamas government of Palestine are proof (if any were needed) that the U.S. government does not really support democracy in the Arab world.  Dictators are, after all, so much easier to control.  Having fostered and supported virtually every dictator in the Middle East, the U.S. regime now finds itself wrong-footed and in an increasingly weakened position in the region.  These popular uprisings will have profound consequences on U.S. stature and policies in the region.


Protestors tear down an image of the Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak in Alexandria on 25 January 2011.

The naysaying pundits on the BBC notwithstanding, the growing intifada in Cairo and across Egypt has shown that the popular revolt is spreading and will not be put down by Mubarak and his security forces.  The writing on the wall is clear – the many long years of Hosni Mubarak’s brutal tyranny are over.  The dictators across the region are now planning their own escapes.  A new day is dawning in the Middle East and there will be no going back to the darkness of the days of the dictators.  The protests that are rocking the Middle East today will eventually result in great changes for the people of the entire region by ending the decades of tyranny imposed on their nations by the Zionist-controlled regimes of the United States, Britain, and Israel.

ISRAEL IN “STATE OF STRATEGIC DISTRESS”

The overthrow of the Mubarak dictatorship puts Israel in “a state of strategic distress”, according to Aluf Benn of Ha’aretz:  “The fading power of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak’s government leaves Israel in a state of strategic distress. Without Mubarak, Israel is left with almost no friends in the Middle East; last year, Israel saw its alliance with Turkey collapse.”  Israel’s strategic distress at the possibility of a democratic Egypt emerging from the overthrow of Mubarak led the Zionist-controlled Obama administration to take desperate and deceitful measures to support the dictatorship the U.S. has funded with billions of dollars every year – for 30 years.

U.S. SENDS C.I.A. DIRTY TRICKS MAN – VIOLENT ATTACKS BEGIN

The Obama administration sent Frank Gardiner Wisner 2nd, the son of one of the founders of the C.I.A.’s propaganda and special operations branch to control the critical situation in Egypt.  In 1947-48, Frank Wisner Sr. established the C.I.A.’s Operation Mockingbird, a program to influence the domestic and foreign media.  “By the early 1950s, Wisner ‘owned’ respected members of The New York Times, Newsweek, CBS and other communications vehicles,” Deborah Davis wrote in her 1979 book entitled, Katharine the Great: Katharine Graham and The Washington Post.

Sending Wisner Junior to Egypt indicates that the United States is engaged in a dangerous and dirty operation against the Egyptian protestors, who massed in Cairo’s Tahrir Square on February 1.  If the U.S.-backed dictatorship resorts to violence, as it did with the orchestrated attacks on the protestors by men on horseback, the U.S. will be seen as responsible because it sent Wisner, a veteran “dirty tricks” agent with a long history of counter-revolutionary actions.

YE SHALL KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUITS

Wisner reportedly left the country the day after Mubarak sent hordes of paid thugs and plain-clothes police into the square to attack the peaceful protestors with Molotov cocktails and weapons.  It is not believable that Mubark would take such drastic actions against the wishes of Obama’s special envoy.  The controlled media has reported that Obama sent Wisner to Cairo to urge Mubarak to step aside, but that is clearly false.  Wisner’s arrival coincided with a pronounced change in tactics against the protestors. The crack down tactics advised by Wisner culminated in the violent attacks against the protestors in Tahrir Square and other places on February 2.  When we consider that the United States is controlled by a highly deceitful and criminal regime, which is actually protecting the real culprits of the terrorist attacks of 9/11, we can understand that the U.S. government shares the same criminal nature as those it supports in Egypt and Israel.  As Jesus said, “Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.”

Wisner’s father became the head of the C.I.A.’s Directorate of Plans (DPP) in 1952 and Richard Helms was his chief of operations. The DPP, formed by the merger of the Office of Policy Coordination and the Office of Special Operations (the espionage division) accounted for three quarters of the C.I.A. budget and 60 percent of its personnel.  In the early 1950s, Wisner orchestrated the overthrow of Mohammed Mossadegh in Iran and Jacobo Arbenz in Guatemala.

This is a very dangerous move because it shows that the Obama White House is pursuing a two-faced policy of trying to keep Mubarak in power while it pretends to be supporting democratic change in Egypt.  Shortly after Wisner arrived in Cairo the Egyptian authorities began confiscating broadcasting equipment from foreign journalists, including the BBC – on arrival at the airport.  As millions of Egyptians prepared for a huge rally in Cairo’s Tahrir Square on February 1, roads and rail links to Cairo were cut.  These actions were clearly being taken on orders given by Wisner.  This shows that the United States has actually been working to support the Mubarak dictatorship in the face of massive protests by the Egyptian people.  This is an extremely ill-advised and dangerous game to be playing while the Obama administration pretends to support “democratic change.”

Frank Gardiner Wisner was on Enron’s board of directors since 1997 and was Vice Chairman of Maurice Greenberg’s fraudulent American International Group (A.I.G.) through 2009, after A.I.G. had received hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars to support its criminal enterprise.  Both Enron and A.I.G. were engaged in criminal fraud operations that cost the U.S. taxpayer dearly.  Wisner has also been involved in C.I.A. activity since the early years of the Vietnam War.
