Bin Laden Back Story: Destroying the Monster We Created


By dlindorff - Posted on 07 May 2011

By James Ridgeway

Back in the 1980s, before the Cold War gave way to the War on Terror, American money and supplies helped Osama Bin Laden create Al Qaeda and build it into one of the world’s most successful terrorist organizations. And without the close alliances between Al Qaeda and our “allies” Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, the attack on the World Trade Towers could not have been carried out. What follows are the bare bones of what we know of this world as it existed in the days before September 11, 2001. (Some of the early material in this account first appeared in my book The Five Unanswered Questions About 9/11.)

In August 1998, shortly after the Al Qaeda bombings of two U.S. embassies in East Africa, Osama Bin Laden was interviewed by Agence France Press. In grandiose but concise terms, he described his own rise to power in the early 1980s, during the years of the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. “To counter these atheist Russians, the Saudis chose me as their representative in Afghanistan,” he said. “I settled in Pakistan in the Afghan border region. There I received volunteers who came from the Saudi kingdom and from all over the Arab and Muslim countries. I set up my first camp where these volunteers were trained by Pakistani and American officers. The weapons were supplied by the Americans, the money by the Saudis. I discovered that it was not enough to fight in Afghanistan, but that we had to fight on all fronts, communist or western oppression.”

In spite of its self-serving message and self-aggrandizing tone, the basic facts of Bin Laden’s account are not inaccurate. The terrorist organization that would one day launch the most devastating attacks ever to take place on American soil owes its existence, in large part, to U.S. covert operations and U.S. allies. At its inception, Al Qaeda was trained and supported by Pakistani agents, funded by Saudi sympathizers, and supplied by the CIA.

Later, when Bin Laden turned his sights on the United States, the CIA’s former friend in Afghanistan became its enemy. But the strategic and financial support provided by Pakistan and Saudi Arabia continued, right up to the moment of the 9/11 attacks. Without these two countries—and especially their powerful intelligence services—the attacks could not have taken place. Attacks of this magnitude required money, and they required a friendly regime in Afghanistan to provide a training base; these were supplied courtesy of our “allies” in the region. Their support for Al Qaeda continued over nearly two decades, with little intervention from the United States beforehand, and few consequences after the fact...

Hey kidz!!! More Zionist "misdirection" propaganda from the Neo-Libs??? . . . ;-)

Hmmmm, can any of you kidz see what's conspicuous by its absence?? . . ;-)

How about THESE "al Qaeda" . . that aren't Pakistani or Saudi . . . but are instead Israeli MOSSAD and American Zionists with ties to the ADL? . . .

Why, I don't think Mr. James "Look Over There" Ridgeway mentions our "Special Friend" or their 5th Column at all in this article . . .

Perhaps if we follow Mr. James "Look Over There" Ridgeway's lead, it will provide more information about where he is coming from in this matter:

Okay, so, given ALL we know know NOW about the events of 9-11, what are Mr. James "Look Over There" Ridgeway's TOP FIVE UNANSWERED QUESTIONS ABOUT 9-11??? .. . ;-)

(clipped text from James Ridgeway website)
"The 5 Unanswered Questions About 9/11 - WHAT THE 9/11 REPORT FAILED TO TELL US - The 9/11 Commission Report is widely declared to be the definitive account of the most devastating attack ever to take place on American soil, but in truth the most vital questions about 9/11 have not been asked:

*Why wasn't a decade of warnings and hundreds of previous deaths enough to improve airline security? Whose interests does the FAA really protect?

*Why was Dick Cheney running the country from a secret bunker on 9/11? Where was Donald Rumsfeld? And how did the Bush administration plot to use the attacks to advance their policy goals?

*With al-Qaeda firmly on the radar for years, why were the FBI and CIA, the world's premier intelligence services, unable to see this coming?

*What did ISI, the Pakistani intelligence organization, know, when did they know it, and whom did they tell? How did U.S. allies in the region help pave the way for these attacks?

*Why didn't this 'independent' commission find anyone accountable for more than 2,700 civilian deaths? Why are so many of their findings still classified?Which questions did they ask-and which did they ignore?"

Apparently, Mr. James "Look Over There" Ridgeway isn't concerned at all about the complete OMISSION of the free-fall collapse WTC-7 by Zionist Philip Zelikow's 9-11 Commission . . . at least it didn't make his top five . . . ;-)

Nor does it appear that Mr. James "Look Over There" Ridgeway is concerned with the Dancing Israelis ARRESTED with vans either packed with or testing positive for explosives, the PROOF of nano-thermite explosives, the reported magick cell phone calls that didn't happen, the magick passports found, . . .

. . or that 1500 Licensed Architects and Engineers have gone on record to say that the "9-11 Commission Report" findings are physically IMPOSSIBLE . . .

Connect the dotz and see the pattern, kidz . ..

"Dying Boogie Man Osama bin Laden did 9-11 and he is in Afghanistan . . . therefore invade Afghanistan"

"Zombie Boogie Man Osama bin Laden did 9-11 and he is in Pakistan . . . therefore invade Pakistan"

Zionism = (Neo-Lib 5th Column) + (Neo-Con 5th Column)

Zionism = (LIES from the LEFT) + (LIES from the RIGHT)

Zionism = THE BIG LIE

Perhaps sister Cindy Sheehan said it best:

Some of us have a DIFFERENT "Back Story" about a "Monster We Created" . . . that goes back to 1948 . . . and includes such events as "The Lavon Affair", "The Attack On the USS Liberty", "Jonathon Pollard's Espionage", "The Illegal Nukes at Dimona", "The Iran-Contra-Israel Scandal", "The Niger Yellowcake forgeries", "The Anthrax Attacks", "Rachel Corrie's Murder", "Operation Cast Lead", . . . and "9-11" . . .

Isn't it "interesting" how so much of the so called "radical" Liberal Press like "This Can't Be Happening", "Mother Jones", or "Rolling Stone" won't touch "9-11 Truth" or anything to do with "Our Special Friend", kidz? . . .

. . . any more than the so called "uptight" Conservative Press like the Wall Street Journal or Fox News??? . .. ;-)

Cui bono? Who benefits?

"And I'm wondering what it is I should do,
It's so hard to keep this smile from my face,
Losing control, yeah I'm all over the place.
Trying to make some sense of it all,
But I can see it makes no sense at all,
Clowns to the left of me,
Jokers to the right,
Here I am stuck in the middle with
Yes, I'm stuck in the middle with you."
