"Americans are asking ‘Why do they hate us?’They hate what they see right here in this chamber: a democratically elected government. Their leaders are self-appointed. They hate our freedoms: our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, our freedom to vote and assemble and disagree with each other.They want to overthrow existing governments in many Muslim countries such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Jordan. They want to drive Israel out of the Middle East. They want to drive Christians and Jews out of vast regions of Asia and Africa.These terrorists kill not merely to end lives, but to disrupt and end a way of life. With every atrocity, they hope that America grows fearful, retreating from the world and forsaking our friends. They stand against us because we stand in their way.We're not deceived by their pretenses to piety.We have seen their kind before. They're the heirs of all the murderous ideologies of the 20th century. By sacrificing human life to serve their radical visions, by abandoning every value except the will to power, they follow in the path of fascism, Nazism and totalitarianism. And they will follow that path all the way to where it ends in history's unmarked grave of discarded lies.Americans are asking, "How will we fight and win this war?''"
Bin Laden's Al Qaeda would continue to fight after the Soviets were expelled from Afghanistan, shifting to support Kosovo's bid for independence from Serbia in the late 1990's. Al Qaeda-trained Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) militants garnered a Serbian response which was then used by NATO as a pretext for intervention.
More recently, Al Qaeda affiliate, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), listed by the US State Department (page 1) as a "Foreign Terrorist Organization," was armed, trained, funded, provided diplomatic and political recognition, and even lent air support and Western special forces to overthrow the government of Libya in 2011.
Far from a conspiracy theory, two West Point Counter Terrorism Center reports confirm not only LIFG's ties to Al Qaeda, but that they were demonstratively killing US and British troops in both Afghanistan and Iraq directly before returning to Libya to assist the US and NATO in regime change.
We are told that the purpose of these revolutions are to instate "freedom," "human rights," and "democracy." So why then is Al Qaeda supporting these uprisings when clearly this is what we've been told for 10 years are the very ideals that drive them to commit their heinous campaign of terror?
The answer is simple, while Al Qaeda's ranks are filled with impressionable, extremist ideologues, the leadership was initially created in the 80's to fulfill US foreign policy, and to this very day still performs this function.
It is, rather, a campaign to entirely reorder the Middle East to Wall Street and London's advantage was declared as early as 1991.
Wesley Clark would also recall a conversation he had in 1991 with then Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Paul Wolfowitz regarding Desert Storm. Clark was told that America's intervention in Iraq proved that the US could use its military force and the Soviets wouldn't stop them. Wolfowitz said the US had 5-10 years to clean up the old Soviet "client regimes" before the next super power rose up and challenged western hegemony.
Clark claimed that this, along with the aftermath of 9/11 constituted a policy coup where Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, and the other members of the of Project for a New American Century (PNAC) had hijacked US foreign policy to destabilize and turn the nations of the Middle East upside down.
IS WALL STREET'S
ARAB FOREIGN LEGION
Al Qaeda was created in the mountains of Afghanistan to serve US foreign policy in the 1970's and 80's, they were invoked as the perpetrators of the New York attacks in both 1993 and 2001 in attempts to justify extraordinary military interventions that while long-planned, would have been impossible otherwise.
Now Al Qaeda legions are in Libya and Syria carrying out regime change of governments long on Wall Street and London's corporate-financier elites' hit list.
We have been lied to about both 9/11 and the true nature of the "Arab Spring," as well as the justification for the approaching war with Iran.
This is not a battle for democracy and human rights, but rather a battle to fulfill the Hitlerian hegemonic ambitions fleshed out in the Project for a New American Century.
