US document reveals cooperation between Washington and Brotherhood

Google+ friend Bill Lively left this comment of my cross post of the Danny Jeffrey essay “Anarchy and Chaos”:

 

It’s odd to see you mention Gaddafi as he was just mentioned in a new scandal coming out as having been whacked by our own guys because he killed too many Muslim Brotherhood (see post on my page) from Religion of Peace earlier as new documents have been released implicating Ovomit as being co-conspirator…It’s hashtagged Benghazi, Chrisstevens and Gaddafi…

 

The Religion of Peace Bill is referencing is a blog by that name rather than one of my favorites source websites with the same name. The Religion of Peace blog derived their news from GulfNews.com.

 

So Gaddafi was allowed to be deposed because he killed too many Muslim Brotherhood types in Libya. Now that would be yet another scandal to add to Obama’s list of corruption to require impeachment, right?

US document reveals cooperation between Washington and Brotherhood

Studies commissioned by the president concluded that the US should back ‘moderate Islamists’ in the region

Dubai: For the past decade, two successive US administrations have maintained close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Tunisia, Syria and Libya, to name just the most prominent cases.

 

The Obama administration conducted an assessment of the Muslim Brotherhood in 2010 and 2011, beginning even before the events known as the “Arab Spring” erupted in Tunisia and in Egypt. The President personally issued Presidential Study Directive 11 (PSD-11) in 2010, ordering an assessment of the Muslim Brotherhood and other “political Islamist” movements, including the ruling AKP in Turkey, ultimately concluding that the United States should shift from its longstanding policy of supporting “stability” in the Middle East and North Africa (that is, support for “stable regimes” even if they were authoritarian), to a policy of backing “moderate” Islamic political movements.

 

To this day, PSD-11 remains classified, in part because it reveals an embarrassingly naïve and uninformed view of trends in the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region.

 

The revelations were made by Al Hewar centre in Washington, DC, which obtained the documents in question.

 

Through an ongoing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit, thousands of pages of documentation of the US State Department’s dealings with the Muslim Brotherhood are in the process of being declassified and released to the public.

 

US State Department documents obtained under the FOIA confirm that the Obama administration maintained frequent contact and ties with the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood. At one point, in April 2012, US officials arranged for the public relations director of the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood, Mohammad Gaair, to come to Washington to speak at a conference on “Islamists in Power” hosted by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

 

A State Department Cable classified “Confidential” report says the following:

 

“Benghazi Meeting With Libyan Muslim Brotherhood: On April 2 [2012] Mission Benghazi met with a senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood steering committee, who will speak at the April 5 Carnegie Endowment `Islamist in Power’ conference in Washington, D.C. He described the Muslim Brotherhood’s decision to form a political party as both an opportunity and an obligation in post-revolution Libya after years of operating underground. The Brotherhood’s Justice and Construction Party would likely have a strong showing in the upcoming elections, he said, based on the strength of the Brotherhood’s network in Libya, its broad support, the fact that it is a truly national party, and that 25 per cent of its members were women. He described the current relationship between the Brotherhood and the TNC (Transitional National Council) as `lukewarm.’”

 

Another State Department paper marked “Sensitive But Unclassified (SBU)” contained talking points for Deputy Secretary of State William Burns’ scheduled July 14, 2012 meeting with Mohammad Sawan, the Muslim Brotherhood leader who was also head of the Brotherhood’s Justice and Construction Party. The document is heavily redacted, but nevertheless provides clear indication of Washington’s sympathies for the emergence of the Muslim Brotherhood as a major political force in the post-Gaddafi Libya. The talking points recommended that Secretary Burns tell Sawan that the US government entities “share your party’s concerns in ensuring that a comprehensive transitional justice process is undertaken to address past violations so that they do not spark new discontent.”

 

The Burns paper described the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood: “Prior to last year’s revolution, the Muslim Brotherhood was banned for over three decades and its members were fiercely pursued by the Gaddafi regime. The Libyan Muslim Brotherhood (LMB) returned to Libya last year after years in exile in Europe and the United States, selected new leadership and immediately began to plan for an active role in Libya’s political future.” After a redacted section, the document continued, “The LMB-affiliated Justice and Construction party, led by Misratan and former political prisoner under Gaddafi Mohammad Sawan, was created in March 2012. Sawan himself was not a candidate in the elections but wields significant influence as the head of the largest political party and most influential Islamist party in Libya.”

 

The July 14 meeting was attended by both Secretary Burns and Ambassador Christopher Stevens. On September 11, 2012, Ambassador Stevens and three other American diplomats were killed in a premeditated terrorist attack on US mission and CIA facilities in Benghazi.

 

An undated State Department cable revealed further courting of the LMB and its Justice and Construction Party. “Mohammad Sawan, Chairman of Justice and Construction Party, received yesterday at his office in Tripoli, Ambassadors of US, UK, FR and IT. The Ambassadors requested the meeting to get acquainted with the party’s position on the current events in Libya, the Government, the Party’s demand to sack the Prime Minister, the Constitution, GNC lifetime arguments, dialogue initiatives and Party’s assessment of political and security situation in Libya and the region. During the meeting, which took an hour and a half and attended by Mohammad Talb, party’s International Relations officer, and Hussam Naeli, acting liaison officer, Sawan explained that the Government has not been able to achieve any success in the core files such as security and local government, which both are under the direct supervision of the Prime Minister. Such a failure resulted in the lack of security, continuous assassinations, kidnappings, crimes, smuggling and attacks on public and private property, halt oil exports and disruption of water and electricity supply. Sawan stressed that a solution is possible and the party presented a clear solution, but the Government is not in harmony. He added we are responsible only for ministries that we take part in.”

 

The State Department cable noted that “On their part, the Ambassadors praised the active role of the Party in the political scene and confirmed their standing with the Libyan people and Government despite its weaknesses and they are keen to stabilize the region… At the end of the meeting, Sawan thanked his guests and all stressed the need to communicate. The guests affirmed that they will assist through Libyan legitimate entities as they did during the revolution.”

Gulf News was first launched in tabloid format in 1979[2] by prominent UAE businessman Abdul Wahab Galadari; its offices were located on the Airport Road, Dubai. In November 1984, three leading UAE businessmen, purchased the company and formed Al Nisr Publishing. The new owners of the paper were Obaid Humaid Al Tayer, Abdullah Al Rostamani and Juma Al Majid. With the death of Abdullah Al Rostamani in 2006, his position on the board is held by a family nominee while the other directors remain.

 

Under new ownership, Gulf News was relaunched on 10 December 1985 and was free to the public. From February 1986, the public was charged one Dirham (US 27 cents) a copy for the Gulf News package which comprised the broadsheet newspaper and a leisure supplement called Tabloid, which also contained classifieds.

 

After moving into new premises in 1986, Gulf News began to be distributed to other GCC countries: Bahrain from September 1987; Oman from April 1989; Saudi Arabia from March 1989; and Qatar from April 1989. It also became available in Pakistan from August 1988. In November 1995 the width of the paper’s broadsheet pages were reduced by four centimetres, to create the new international size of 38 centimetres. Al Nisr Publishing became a Limited Liability Company (LLC) with a share capital of Dh15 million on 26 May 1997. The daily launched a website and video news in the second part of the 2000s.[3] Wikipedia

Initial Thoughts of Wallechinsky 11 Secret Govt. Documents


Top Secret Docs

 

John R. Houk

© December 12, 2012

 

Conspiracy Theory is something I love to look at. I especially like the Conspiracy Theories that slant toward Conspiracy Reality. In saying that, Tony Newbill sent a link that is truly based on fact.

 

The link leads to a story about secret government documents that David Wallechinsky the author believes Americans should be aware. Wallechinsky is quite bi-partisan listing secret documents from both Democrats and Republicans.

 

Wallechinsky is critical of Obama signing a memo allowing the assassination of American citizens involved in terrorism against the USA living outside the USA.

 

Let me be clear about Obama. He is one of the most nefarious Presidents in U.S. history because his “Change” agenda is the transformation of America from a Christian ethics Free Market society to a Secular Humanist non-Judea-Christian Socialistic (probably more toward some form of Marxism) society. It nearly drives me crazy that a majority of American voters cannot see that Obama’s agenda will change the American Way for the worst.

 

In saying my attitude toward Obama I have to side with Obama on assassinating American traitors working against the USA from outside the nation. Here’s the thing. An American that works to bring down America and does so by hiding out on a foreign basis has ceased to be protected by the U.S. Constitution and has become an enemy combatant whether that person is a soldier, spy or terrorist. Taking a traitor out in a foreign nation is the result of the affairs of war as far as I am concerned.

 

In that same vein I am also a supporter of the Patriot Act as far as it is designed in a time of war to track down the enemies of the USA both foreign and domestic. Regardless of the Left telling us that we are at war with Islam, purist Muslims (i.e. Radical Islam) believe Islam is in a Jihad to end Free America to place Americans in submission to their intolerant Allah.

 

That which is unfortunate is that the Patriot Act provides the temptation for Presidential Administrations to abuse power beyond the design of the intention. The Patriot Act has been used against American citizens that have no direct part in the Global War on Terror (GWOT) domestically or on a foreign basis. This abuse of power by either Democrat or Republican Presidential Administration is a breach of the people’s trust of government protecting U.S. citizens. The breach of trust is what led then British citizens in the American Colonies to revolt and form a more perfect Union in which the people govern themselves under a just rule of law rather than a foreign despot.

 

It is my opinion that greater extreme prejudice needs to be used against Islamic Terrorists to at least render the GWOT as negligible within the U.S. borders. In accomplishing the efficacy the GWOT within the borders it will then be time to modify or end the Patriot Act so that the abuse of U.S. government power against domestic dwelling American citizens ceases.

 

I was not aware that President Bush and Vice President Cheney appeared before the 911 Commission under specific stipulations of no taping or transcribing but only secretarial note taking. AND that these notes are still classified. It is no wonder that 911 Conspiracy Theorists believe the al Qaeda Islamic Terrorist attack was actually an inside job by the U.S. government. I’m still not with 911 Truthers nonetheless why did Bush/Cheney want that 911 Commission interview off the books?

 

Being person that believes in extreme prejudice to bring the GWOT to a quicker end I am in favor of Waterboarding to extract information. Leftist cry torture, I like the terminology of enhanced interrogation techniques. The fine line between torture and enhanced interrogation techniques is physical result. Waterboarding that results in death is torture. Waterboarding that exacts the illusion of drowning without leaving physical marks is not torture. Waterboarding does not add physical scarring: no dismemberment of body parts and no scarring marks leftover from cutting or burning or electrifying or so on.

 

There is a bit of an irony in the Leftist whining of torture and the Leftist-in-Chief writing the memo for targeted assassination of foreign operating American citizens working to betray America. You realize Obama was thinking of prosecuting Bush Administration Officials and/or the Intelligence Community under the Bush Administration for Waterboarding, right?

 

Wallechinsky goes on to name quite a few secret documents that are hid from the American public. You should read the entire post.

Herald Sun

 

THOUSANDS of files with details of UFO sightings and an “alien abduction” in London have been released for the first time by the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD).

 

The previously classified files contain more than 8500 pages that reveal the UFO phenomenon has been discussed at the highest levels of governments worldwide – and in 1979 the UK House of Lords held Parliament’s only ever full debate among lawmakers on the subject, Sky News reported.

 

The files, which also contain pictures, described how for a few hours in 1967 a War Of The Worlds -style incident was treated as a potentially real alien invasion of the UK.

 

Another startling revelation said in the months before the September 11 attacks in 2001, 15 unidentified aircraft were detected on radar approaching the UK and one was detected on the actual day.

 

In another case a man told the MoD he believed he had been beamed up by an alien craft from his home in Barnes, southwest London.

 

The files contain pages of UFO sightings and reports, colour photographs and drawings, UK Royal Air Force investigations, unusual radar detections, briefings to lawmakers and – for the first time – documents on the government’s policy on UFOs.
