“Russia is pulling the strings in the Middle East.” – Mark Hitchcock, Russia Rising: Tracking the Bear in Bible Prophecy, 5.
While the 9/11 attacks were a great tragedy for our nation, they were a tremendous windfall for our enemies. In particular, Russia benefited massively from our loss – and from our subsequent War on Terror. From day one, Russia has urged the United States to involve herself in the Middle East quagmire. This article will give the bullet points of why Russia and the communist world benefit from America’s disastrous War on Terror.
Hours after the 9/11 attacks, Russian President Vladimir Putin was the first head of state to call President George W. Bush and offer his condolences. He also became the first foreign supporter of America’s War on Terror. Russia has continuously prodded the United States to bat the Arab hornets nest. Our initial attack on Afghanistan in 2001 was launched largely from Russia-dominated Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan and other bases in the region and with the help of intelligence from Russian sources.
In a 2016 article in The Washington Post, we read:
“Several former U.S. officials I spoke with acknowledged the crucial Russian contributions immediately after 9/11 to support the Northern Alliance and provide logistical support and share intelligence to U.S.-led coalition efforts to remove the Taliban from power in Afghanistan. As one official remarked, “Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan in 2001 marked the closest alignment of U.S. and Russian interests, and Russian support was as important as that of any NATO ally.”
“Some former Russian officials I interviewed recalled the hope in 2001 that Russia, the U.S. and other partners could establish an anti-terrorist coalition, much like the anti-Hitler coalition in World War II. Vladimir Putin proposed this concept again last September at the United Nations.”
It was “former” KGB agent Vladimir Putin who was so eager to get America into war in the Middle East that he provided “logistical support,” shared intelligence, and allowed the United States to use bases in the Russian sphere of influence. In the September United Nations speech referenced, Putin spoke of the dastardly Yalta Conference where Stalin persuaded his comrade FDR to allow the Soviet Union to take over Eastern Europe and have influence in China, which directly led to China being conquered by the Reds. Putin said that it was at Yalta that the current “world order” had been arranged and that its principles should be maintained today.
I remind the reader that the Yalta Conference, held in the Soviet Union and hosted by mass murderer Joseph Stalin, was nothing but a sell-out of the world to the Soviets. It is fitting, then, that Putin – a man who has publicly lamented the so-called “fall” of the USSR – would appeal to Yalta in connection with the War on Terror. Our costly war has benefited Russia and her allies immensely. Indeed, I will go so far as to say that the War on Terror has been almost as big a boon for Putin as the Yalta Conference was for Stalin.
The ironically-named Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, an internationalist-controlled organization, lauded the “qualitatively new level of military cooperation” between the United States and Russia and even recommended Congress fork out “increased funds for Russian democracy.” This should not be surprising. After all, the CEIP was once headed by the Soviet spy Alger Hiss. It was also proved by the Reece Committee that, at least in 1910, the foundation had conspired to get the United States involved in international wars in order to fundamentally transform society domestically during the turmoil. It was another tax-exempt foundation, the Ford Foundation, which told Chairman Carroll Reece:
“The substance of the directives under which we operate is that we shall use our grant making power to so alter life in the United States that we can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union” (Robert Henry Goldsborough, Lines of Credit: Ropes of Bondage: The Story of the Financiers, Their Fellow Conspirators, and the Plot to Destroy Western Christian Civilization, 32).
After his investigations into these same foundations which today support the War on Terror and encourage us to work with Russia, Carroll Reece concluded:
“Here lies the story of how communism and socialism are financed in the United States, where they get their money. It is the story of who pays the bill.
“There is evidence to show there is a diabolical conspiracy back of all this. Its aim is the furtherance of socialism in the United States. . . .
“The method by which this is done seems fantastic to reasonable men, for these Communists and Socialists seize control of fortunes left behind by Capitalists when they die, and turn these fortunes around to finance the destruction of capitalism” (Robert Henry Goldsborough, Lines of Credit: Ropes of Bondage: The Story of the Financiers, Their Fellow Conspirators, and the Plot to Destroy Western Christian Civilization, 27).
I digress and leave you to research this dark aspect of the story for yourself. We return now to Russia’s giddy support of America’s War on Terror. The Brookings Institute, another elitist think tank, described the situation in mid-2002:
“When Russian President Vladimir Putin picked up the phone to express his sympathy to President Bush in the aftermath of September 11 and then followed up by providing concrete assistance to the campaign in Afghanistan and quickly acquiescing to U.S. plans to establish bases in central Asia, Washington policymakers and analysts concluded Putin had made a strategic, even historic, choice to align Russia’s foreign policy with that of the United States. It was a reasonable conclusion to make.
“From the beginning of his presidency in January 2000, Putin pushed the idea of a concerted campaign against terrorism with American and European leaders. He was one of the first to raise the alarm about terrorist training camps in Afghanistan and to warn of linkages between these camps, well-financed terrorist networks, and Islamic militant groups operating in Europe and Eurasia. Russia also actively supported the Northern Alliance in its struggle with the Taliban in Afghanistan. In December 2000, Moscow joined Washington in supporting United Nations sanctions against the Taliban and later appealed for sanctions against Pakistan for aiding the Taliban. After the attacks on the United States, Putin went so far as to suggest he had been expecting a massive terrorist strike—it had only been a matter of time.”
Not only did Putin “expect” a terrorist strike, he claimed Russia warned the United States at least two days prior that an attack was imminent. I have no doubt Putin had foreknowledge, for reasons which we will discuss later.
With all of this in mind, we are forced to ask yet again why Putin – a man who spent his earlier life as a KGB agent committed to destroying the “main enemy,” the United States – was so eager to get America embroiled in the Middle East after 9/11? Was it, as he and his apologists claims, because he is truly concerned about the threat terrorism and wants to help the West? Rubbish!
We must remember how Vladimir Putin came to power. Putin spent his early service in the KGB. The KGB later renamed itself the FSK and later the FSB. In 1998, Russian dictator Boris Yeltsin appointed Putin as its head. Putin then, with the help of Russian billionaire oligarchs (who were often former Russian intelligence figures invested with Communist Party funds), got himself appointed president of Russia in the wake of Yeltsin’s sudden resignation in December 1999. Yeltsin’s resignation was precipitated by a tragedy that struck Russia that same year.
Before we discuss the tragedy that led to what we call the Second Chechen War, however, let’s discuss how and why the First Chechen War began. Alexander Litvinenko, a former Russian intelligence agent who was assassinated by Russia, spent the last years of his life exposing Putin’s criminality and the fact that the FSB (i.e. KGB) ruled Russia. In his book Blowing Up Russia, Litvinenko wrote of how the First Chechen War in 1994 came about:
“No one but a total madman could have wished to drag Russia into any kind of war, let alone a war in the North Caucasus . . . This war resulted in the isolation of the Russian state from the community of civilized nations, since the rest of the world did not support it and could not understand it. A previously popular, well-beloved president [Yeltsin], therefore, sacrificed the support of both his own public and the international community. Once he had fallen into the trap, he was left with no option but to resign before the end of his term, and hand over power to the FSB in return for a guarantee of immunity for himself and his family. We known who it was that benefited from all of this – the people to whom Yeltsin handed over power. We know how the result was achieved – by means of the war in Chechnya. . . .
“. . . The “party of war,” based on the military and law enforcement ministries, believe that they could afford [to start a war with Chechnya], as long as the public was prepared for it, and it would be easy enough to influence public opinion, if the Chechens were seen to resort to terrorist tactics in their struggle for independence. All that was needed was to arrange terrorist attacks in Moscow and leave a trail leading back to Chechnya.
“. . . on November 18, 1994, the FSK made its first recorded attempt to stir up anti-Chechen feeling by committing an act of terrorism and laying the blame on Chechen separatists. . . .
“It should be noted that on November 18 and in later instances, the supposed “Chechen terrorists” set off their explosions at the most inopportune times, and then never actually claimed responsibility (rendering the terrorist attack itself meaningless). In any case, in November 1994, public opinion in Russia and around the world was on the side of the Chechen people, so why would the Chechens have committed an act of terrorism in Moscow? . . . Russian supporters of war with Chechnya were, however, only too willing to see the hand of Chechnya in any terrorist attack, and their response on every occasion was to strike a rapid and quite disproportionately massive blow against Chechen sovereignty” (Alexander Litvinenko and Yuri Felshtinsky, Blowing Up Russia: The Secret Plot to Bring Back KGB Terror, 3-5).
Litvinenko explained that the railroad bombing of November 18, 1994, was traced back to an employee, Captain Andrei Schelenkov, of the oil company Lanako. He wrote:
“Lanako’s boss . . . was thirty-five-year-old Maxim Lazovsky, a highly valued agent of the Moscow and Moscow Region Department of the FSB . . . we can also point out the significant fact that every single one of Lanako’s employees was a full-time or free-lance agent of the Russian counterespionage agencies” (Alexander Litvinenko and Yuri Felshtinsky, Blowing Up Russia: The Secret Plot to Bring Back KGB Terror, 6-7).
The 1994 incident, then, was a false-flag bombing perpetrated by Russian intelligence. This event paved the way for the First Chechen War. That war came to a stalemate in 1996 with Russia promising to grant Chechnya eventual sovereignty. It was another series of false-flag bombings in 1999, however, that justified the Second Chechen War and allowed the FSB to put Vladimir Putin into power as president of the Russian Federation.
At the beginning of September, 1999, a series of apartment bombs rocked Russia, killing several hundred. These were naturally blamed on Islamic Chechen terrorists. Alexander Litvinenko, and other researchers, however, have pinned the blame directly on the Moscow FSB which had so recently been headed by Vladimir Putin. In Ryazan, on September 22, light was shed on who was perpetrating the bombings.
On that day, a man spotted suspicious individuals carrying what appeared to be sacks of sugar or flour into the basement of a building. He called the police who arrived and found these sacks rigged with timed explosives and set near the main support columns of the building. The sacks contained hexogen, a military-grade explosive substance. Had the men not been spotted and the police not called, the bomb would have later gone off and demolished the old building. Like the other bombings, this would have been blamed on “Islamic terrorists” as part of the pretext for launching the Second Chechen War.
In the immediate aftermath of the foiled bombing, Putin congratulated the public for its vigilance and the FSB feigned no knowledge of the event. Yet, two days later, after several “terrorists” had been apprehended in Ryazan by the local authorities, the Moscow FSB claimed the entire thing has been a training exercise and ordered the suspects released. Litvinenko raised obvious questions about this odd version of events. He wrote:
“Could we possibly expect the FSB to say nothing all day long on September 23, while the whole world was buzzing with news of a failed terrorist attack? It’s impossible to imagine. Is it possible to imagine that the Prime Minister of Russia [Putin] and former director of the FSB, who, moreover, has personal links with Patrushev [then head of the FSB], was not informed about the “exercises?” . . . The fact that at seven o’clock in the evening, on September 23, 1999, Putin did not make any statement about training exercises taking place in Ryazan was the weightiest possible argument in favor of interpreting events as a failed attempt by the FSB to blow up an apartment building in Ryazan” (Alexander Litvinenko and Yuri Felshtinsky, Blowing Up Russia: The Secret Plot to Bring Back KGB Terror, 63).
Litvinenko also observed:
“The FSB department for the Ryazan Region was also not informed about the “exercises.” Bludov stated that “the FSB was not informed in advance that exercises were being conducted in the city.” The head of the Ryazan FSB, Major-General A.V. Sergeiev at first stated in an interview with the local television company Oka that he knew nothing about any “exercises” being held. . . .
“The Ryazan FSB realized that the people of Ryazan had been “set up” and that the Public Prosecutor’s Office of Russia and the public might accuse the Ryazan FSB of planning the explosion. Shaken by the treachery of their Moscow colleagues, the Ryazan FSB decided to provide themselves with an alibi and announced to the world that the Ryazan operation had been planned in Moscow. There could be no other explanation for the statement from the Ryazan Region FSB, which appeared shortly after Patrushev’s interview about “exercises” in Ryazan. We give the text of the statement in full.
“”It has become known that the planning on September 22, 1999 of a dummy explosive device was part of an ongoing interregional exercise. This announcement came as a surprise to us and appeared at a moment when the department of the FSB had identified the residences in Ryazan of those involved in planting the explosive device and was preparing to detain them. This had been made possible due to the vigilance and assistance of many of the residents of the city of Ryazan, collaboration with the agencies of the Ministry of the Interior, and the professionalism of our own staff. . . .”
“This unique document provides us with answers to the most important of our questions. Firstly, the Ryazan FSB had nothing to do with the operation to blow up the building in Ryazan. Secondly, at least two terrorists were discovered in Ryazan. Thirdly, the terrorists lived in Ryazan, if only temporarily, and evidently a network of at least two secret safe apartments were uncovered. Fourthly, just at the moment when arrangements were in hand to arrest the terrorists, the order came from Moscow not to arrest them, because the terrorist attack in Ryazan was only an FSB “exercise”” (Alexander Litvinenko and Yuri Felshtinsky, Blowing Up Russia: The Secret Plot to Bring Back KGB Terror, 71-72).
Litvinenko recounted that the Ryazan authorities arrested the suspected terrorists anyhow. These men were later released by an intelligence officer from Moscow and taken back with him. The case was sealed and classified after that, and the FSB confiscated Ryazan FSB’s evidence when the latter attempted to conduct their own investigation. In the Ryazan incident we have Vladimir Putin publicly lying, the Moscow FSB changing their statements and claiming the entire thing was an “exercise,” the Ryazan FSB attempting an independent investigation and getting blocked by Moscow higher ups, and evidence being concealed and confiscated. It was a complete cover up. And where there’s a cover up, there’s a conspiracy.
Numerous sources back up Litvinenko’s testimony and it is well known that Russia has always supported, trained, armed, and used Islamic terrorists to do her dirty work. Indeed, Russia invented modern terrorism! The KGB and GRU, more than any other organizations, have fostered the rise of so-called “Islamic extremism” and “Islamic terrorism.” An article by Marius Laurinavičius explained how Russia was behind the rise of radical Wahhabism and even how it managed Chechen terrorism – the very same terrorists alleged to be behind the apartment bombings in 1999:
“In general, the links between Chechen terrorist and Russian secret services cannot be denied even by those Western experts and commentators who tend to call these links a conspiracy theory.
“The fact that the famous Shamil Basayev, Ruslan Gelayev and some others Chechen terrorist commanders began their career not only fighting on the Russian side during the Georgian-Abkhaz war, but were directly trained by the special forces of Russian military intelligence (GRU), was basically never even denied in Russia. The traces of GRU agents were not a secret as well. . . .
“Whether we read Litvinenko’s and Felshtisnkys book ‘FSB blowing up Russia’, David Satter’s ‘Darkness at Dawn: The Rise of the Russian Criminal State’, John Dunlop’s ‘The Moscow Bombings of September 1999: Examinations of Russian Terrorist Attacks at the Onset of Vladimir Putin’s Rule’, or the especially popular investigation carried out by Karen Dawisha, professor at the Miami University, called ‘Putin’s Kleptocracy: Who Owns Russia?’, it is difficult to deny the tons of odd coincidences and inexplicable actions of Russian government. In the meantime, Putin’s regime closed all doors to any kind of investigations, and many people, who were trying to shed some light on these allegations, were murdered or died under very strange circumstances. . . .
“Russian journalist Sanobar Shermatova, who died in 2011, was considered not only a journalist, but also one of the best Russian experts of Middle Asia and Caucasus. After the events in Chechnya and Dagestan in summer 1999 she wrote a serious analytic piece called ‘The so-called Wahhabis’. . . .
“After emphasising that this Islamic party was merely a ‘branch of USSR Islamic Revival party’, Shermatova continued: ‘Islamic activists played a pretty important role in the opposition. I mean those who were called ‘Wahhabis’ in KGB chronicles. At the time this term was not widely known, and not entirely understood even by those who were called this name. USSR had banned the Islamic literature, and only those few who went to study in Arab countries, had knowledge about Islam history, movements and streams. But these people, as usual, were inspected for their loyalty to KGB, and then included into ‘religious nomenclature’ while constantly being controlled by the special services. Ordinary Muslims were not familiar with Muhammad Ibn Abd al-Wahhabi’s doctrine.’ In Shermatova’s research and in further investigation of Uzbekistan’s and Kirghizia’s ‘Wahhabis’, KGB traces stretch along the story.”
One of the great anti-communist researchers working today, Cliff Kincaid, also explained what is really behind “Islamic” terrorism:
“Islam as a whole is not the enemy. Islam is an “enemy” only in the sense that it has been hijacked by communists, mostly of the Soviet/Russian variety, to use against the United States. . . .
“. . . we find many people on the political scene today who want to take on “global Islam” without understanding that the Jihadists have been co-opted as cannon fodder in the world revolution. . . .
“. . . International Marxism has hijacked much of global Islam. . . .
“. . . Former KGB officer Konstantin Preobrazhensky spoke at this [“Lenin and Sharia”] conference and contributed a major report on how the Communists have always exploited Muslims for communist purposes. His report was titled, “Made in Moscow Terrorism. Communists and Muslims: The Hidden Hand of the KGB.” One of the best known examples of this tendency is Carlos the Jackal, the KGB-trained Marxist terrorist who converted to Islam.
“”Long before Islamic terrorism became a global threat, the KGB had used terrorism to facilitate the victory of world communism,” he said. He told ASIA [America’s Survival Inc.] that Islamic Terrorism is a “child” of the old Soviet-sponsored terror networks and that Russian involvement must be addressed by the U.S. . . .
“. . . Marius Laurinavicius, Senior Policy Analyst in the Policy Analysis and Research Division of the Eastern Europe Studies Center, argued in his paper, “Do traces of KGB, FSB and GRU lead to Islamic State?,” that it is impossible to understand the rise of the Islamic State without paying attention to the links between Russian secret services and Arab/Muslim terrorists, including in the Russian region of Chechnya.
“Writer and researcher Christian Gomez traced the roots of ISIS to the Islamic Revival Party, created by the KGB. . . .
“The FSB defector said that in order to create ISIS, the Russians selected former officers of the Iraqi army and members of the Arab Socialist Ba’ath Party. All of them had graduated from Moscow-based “educational institutions” (Cliff Kincaid, Red Jihad: Moscow’s Final Solution for America and Israel, 24-25, 27-28).
As a capstone to this section of the article, we quote again from Cliff Kincaid. He had this to say:
“Islamic terrorism in Russia has sometimes been the work of the FSB. This means that the prospect of more terrorist incidents cannot be assumed to be the work of Islamist groups, and may actually be the work of provocateurs connected to the Russian regime. One purpose of such “false flag” terrorism was to frighten the public into believing that Putin and the “new Russia” are opposed to terrorism, and to solidify Putin’s control over the levers of state power” (Cliff Kincaid, Back from the Dead: The Return of the Evil Empire, 41).
All of this might seem tangential. However, it is fundamental to understanding of Putin’s motives. He is not a man motivated by real anti-terrorist feelings. Russia is not fighting in the Middle East to stop terrorism or to help the United States stop Islamic extremism. Russia perpetuates terrorism and actively fosters extremism, war, and chaos all over the globe!
It’s a classic communist tactic to create a crisis and then rush in to pose as the savior. They’ve done this since the beginning. The Russian Alexander Markovsky explained what he was taught about this process during his Soviet indoctrination:
“Indeed, if you want to change a society, here is Lenin’s script: cause the problem. Spread the misery. Send a cadre of professional community organizers to unite all of the angry and disinherited spirits to fuel an organized revolt. Entice chaos and violence. Exploit chaos for larger political objectives. Blame your political opponents, demonize and criminalize them” (Cliff Kincaid, The Sword of Revolution and the Communist Apocalypse, 41).
An anonymous intelligence operative explained the same principle to researcher Cliff Kincaid. He said:
“Great disorder means great reorganization. The greater the upheaval or the greater the disorder and the greater the opportunity for reorganization. If things seem to be sort of becoming unglued in places, keep in mind that somebody is going to glue it together. . . .
“. . . In other words, you want to create disorder because you want to be able to reorganize. So the more disorder you can create within the framework of society the more opportunity you have to intervene and create that. Passivity doesn’t get you very far because everything remains the same . . . [disorder] gives an opportunity for people who are well-organized, who are leading the disorder, to get involved and to recreate the society in a way in which they want it. . . .
“. . . the idea of creating disorder is an opportunity for the intervention of the Communist Party and for communists to get involved” (Cliff Kincaid, The Sword of Revolution and the Communist Apocalypse, 93-95).
Let’s stop being theoretical and list some specific examples of Russia’s use of terrorism, apart from the FSB bombings inside Russia. In his excellent book The Secret Offensive, Chapman Pincher wrote:
“The continuing firm support of international terrorism by the Politburo is inevitable because of the very nature of Soviet Communism which regards terrorism – outside the confines of the Soviet Bloc – as just another aspect of the political war against societies which need to be ‘smashed’ and because of the success it has enjoyed through terrorising its own people. Through the International Department and the KGB, the Politburo has maintained close links with terrorist organizations like the Palestinian Liberation Organization, the IRA, the Rhodesian ZAPU, the Egyptian Fundamentalists and many others which are all projected as ‘freedom fighters'” (Chapman Pincher, The Secret Offensive: The Soviet Challenge to Western Freedom, 287).
It is well established that the Soviet Union trained and armed the majority of terrorists throughout the world – particularly Middle Eastern terrorists. The leadership of ISIS, for instance, were former Iraqi Republican Guardsmen who had been trained in the Soviet Union. One of Al Qaeda’s prominent leaders, Ayman al-Zawahiri, was trained by Soviet intelligence. The various heads of the KGB-created Palestinian state – men like Yasser Arafat and the current puppet Mahmoud Abbas – were trained in Russia. The Iranian Ayatollah, Ali Khamenei, was also trained by the KGB at the Patrice Lumumba University. Egypt, Syria, Iran, and a host of nations have received military weapons and sophisticated weapons systems from the Russians (as well as from the Red Chinese in more recent years). The Weathermen terrorists in the United States were supported by Soviet allies (who themselves were trained and funded by the Soviets). Aum Shinrykyo, the Japanese terrorist murderer, was KGB-trained. The Red Army factions, so-called, in Italy, Germany, and elsewhere, are supported by Russia. And on and on.
Chapman Pincher noted the Soviets’ obsession with using others to do their dirty work. He wrote:
“The Soviet authorities are ingenious in distancing themselves from the terrorism they exploit, so that in the event of exposure their involvement can be denied. This has been confirmed by an extensive study undertaken by the CIA which showed that while there are many camps inside the Soviet Union for the training of terrorists, Soviet citizens are not involved in their operations abroad and so can never be caught with a ‘smoking gun'” (Chapman Pincher, The Secret Offensive: The Soviet Challenge to Western Freedom, 288).
I cannot stress to heavily that the communists invented terrorism! Terrorism was a major tactic employed by the Bolsheviks in gaining and maintaining power in Russia. Lenin openly encouraged his comrades to use terrorism and often chided them for not being cruel enough. In a 2017 Forbes article, Victor Rud wrote:
“The U.S.S.R. was established as the quintessential terrorist state, never merely a “state sponsor” of terrorism. Its terror was organized, methodical and above all hyperbolic, eclipsing anything that ISIS can engineer. The very reason for it all was to establish the structure that would destroy the West, more specifically the greatest Satan of them all (as it is for ISIS), the United States.”
Rud also informed us of Russia’s long-standing incestuous relationship with Islamic terrorists and how Russia benefits from continued terrorism:
“Moscow’s Patrice Lumumba Friendship University seconded foreigners to embed Moscow’s agenda in their own countries. Yassar Arafat was one, the KGB’s makeover receiving the Nobel Peace Prize. Iran’s Ayatollah Khomenei was another. There were thousands. Home-grown, non-Arab terrorists were even better: Venezuelan Carlos the Jackal, Germans Ulrike Meinhoff, French terrorist Regis Debray and former Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi. All were either direct KGB agents or KGB-financed.
“Moscow never renounced its imperatives in birthing and sustaining Islamic terrorism, Putin declaring at the 2003 conference of the Islamic Conference Organization that Russia was Islam’s historical defender. Alexander Litvinenko was the ex-KGB officer who defected and who in 2005 was assassinated by Moscow in London using Polonium 210—nuclear warfare in Magna Carta’s front yard. He had revealed that Ayman al-Zawahiri, the head of al-Qaeda, had been trained by the KGB in Dagestan, a region currently controlled by Russia and that was tied to the two Boston Marathon bombers. We know that Al-Zawahiri planned 9/11 with Osama bin Laden. More recently, the KGB has supplied recruits for ISIS from its North Caucasus and Central Asia regions.
“”Radical Islamic terror” serves Russia’s purpose perfectly. Why should Putin refuse its benefit? The smoke had not cleared from the Boston Common before Putin called President Obama to intone his sympathy. Particularly for Americans (and, importantly, as much viscerally as cerebrally), the bombing by two Chechen brothers rebranded Putin’s genocidal war against Chechnya as a campaign against “Islamic terrorism” (Chechens are conveniently Muslim). This, in turn, neutralized Litvinenko’s revelation that the Russian apartment bombings (which were Putin’s pretext for that genocide) had been the work of Putin himself. We were thereby relieved of any moral tug that we may have had over Moscow’s assassination of Litvinenko. At the end, we were presented with seeming proof of Russia’s common cause with America in fighting “Islamic terror.” With preceding circumstances, motive, opportunity and benefit established, history will show the Kremlin’s advance knowledge of the two Tsarnaev brothers’ intentions, and that it could have prevented the Boston horror. It willfully did not. If a dirty bomb explodes in Friendship, Maine, or thousands in Topeka simultaneously die from “natural causes,” the last cry heard may be, “Allah Akbar.” We should then well ponder if that’s as far as it goes.”
As we have seen, terrorism is not merely an old Soviet strategy, but a tactic used today by Vladimir Putin and the FSB-controlled Russian government. Not only is terrorism used in Russia by the communist regime, but they continue to export it abroad or train those who do. It is claimed, for instance, that Iran is the world’s largest sponsor of terrorism. Yet, who sponsors and props up Iran? Russia and China. They supply every major dispenser of terrorism. Without Russia and Putin’s personal approval, global terrorism would decrease to a mere trickle.
We must understand that the false-flag bombings in 1994 and 1999 were not organic terrorist acts. Rather, they were merely blamed on Islamic terrorists and used to justify a “war on terror” in Chechnya. They were also used by Putin to solidify his control – on behalf of the FSB, Russian intelligence, and hidden benefactors – of the Russian government. It should strike the observer as eerie how closely Putin’s “war on terror” mirrors our own. To wit, each was precipitated by an act of terrorism blamed on Islamic fundamentalists, used to justify war and intervention in the Middle East and Central Asia, and cast as a pretext to expand government control domestically.
Fighting a war on terrorism is a useful tool in the hands of the Elite for many reasons, not least of which it offers the prospect of endless war and conflict which help transform the global chess board and ramp up profits. Let’s focus on what Russia immediately gained by supporting the United States in 2001. Instantaneously Russia’s actions against “Islamic terrorism” in Chechnya became legitimized by her cooperation with the the U.S. “War on Terror.” Instantaneously all attention shifted from Russia’s brutal war to America’s invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. Instantaneously Russia was a strategic “partner” against so-called terrorists and was considered by many as a friend. And that is just for starters.
More importantly, Russia’s strategic position has been amplified in immeasurable ways. Remember that Russia is our enemy. The communist world considers war against the United States as inevitable and they’ve been arming for this struggle at a pace never seen before. The Middle East is strategically important for numerous reasons – oil, shipping routes, Jerusalem, the convergence of major world religions, etc. Inasmuch as the communist goal is global domination, and the Middle East is part of the globe, it makes sense that the Russians would take every opportunity to weasel their way in.
Before the War on Terror, the Middle East was already dominated by socialist states giving obeisance to Russia – Syria, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Egypt, etc. However, as the American wrecking ball tore through Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, and Syria, it left a void of power that Russia could more easily exploit. And exploit it they have!
It seems clear to my mind that Russia used the United States to soften up countries which they have since come in and won over. We were their bull in the Middle Eastern china shop that caused enough chaos that the Russian “white knight” could ride in and save the day. Russia is now fully entrenched in Syria and has moved into Iraq and Afghanistan in a major way while vastly improving relations with Saudi Arabia and other nations. They have also shored up their long-standing relationship with Iran and concluded an important three-way Russia-Turkey-Iran alliance. China has also used the turbulence to expand their presence in Pakistan, Iran, and Israel, to name only three. None of this would have been easily doable without the War on Terror and America’s blundering ineptness (or, some might say, criminal complicity).
Mark Hitchcock has observed:
“Russia, Iran, and Turkey inhabit the same neighborhood and share many common interests, yet the Syrian conflict that began in 2011 has pulled them closer than ever. At the same time that Turkey is becoming more distanced from the West and Iran’s alienation has pushed them further into the Russian orbit, the Syrian civil war is a driving force in uniting these nations. Russia and Iran both support the brutal regime of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad against the US-supported rebels.
“Russia, Iran, and Turkey are getting closer to one another in Syria and very close to Israel’s northern border. The framework for ending the Syria conflict, known as “the Moscow Declaration,” was accepted by Russia, Iran, and Turkey. Christian Caryl of the Washington Post writes, “While Moscow, Ankara and Tehran plot their own ‘peace process’ for the Syrian civil war, the United States is conspicuous in its absence.” Washington’s reticence has created a vacuum, and these powers are all too willing to fill it. . . .
“The Russian bear has roared out of hibernation suddenly and dramatically and dominates world headlines every day. The Bear’s footprints continue to leave their mark all over the world. . . .
“. . . Iran’s Mahdi mentality fuels its expansionist ambitions as it works to hasten the coming of its messiah.
“Turkey is descending into a dictatorship led by an Islamist and is cozying up to Russia and Iran. President Erdogan’s rhetoric against Israel is heating up. Four of the ancient allies named in Ezekiel 38 are located in modern Turkey.
“. . . Syria is a flashpoint that is aligning Russia, Iran, and Turkey into a fearsome triumvirate. Russia and Iran have seized the chaos in Syria as an opportunity to bring in troops and air power, putting them just north of Israel.
“Libya and Sudan are radical Islamic nations with deep animus toward Israel. The deepening turmoil and instability in these nations has provided an opening for greater Russian influence” (Mark Hitchcock, Russia Rising: Tracking the Bear in Bible Prophecy, 74, 142-143).
Author S. Douglas Woodward similarly explained how Russia took full advantage of American incompetence/complicity in the Middle East to occupy the dominant position in the region:
“Russia intends to dominate the Middle East and push the U.S. out of the premier geopolitical position, especially in the so-called “fertile crescent” which begins in Syria, crosses the northern parts of Iraq, and includes much of Iran. As virtually everyone knows, because of the oil-rich lands spread across virtually the entire Middle East, this area comprises one of the most important expanses impacting the entire global economy. Combined with the recent nuclear technology deal made between Iran and five other nations in which Russia played a key part, Mr. Putin now stands tall throughout this region. . . .
“Russia involvement in the region and its overall strategy appears clear to European experts familiar with Moscow. The former head of Estonian Intelligence and a member of Estonia’s parliament, Eerik-Niiles Kross, points out that Russia has a grand plan involving its efforts in both Ukraine and Syria.
“”Experts from the left and right alike warn that cooperation with Russia on Syria can have potentially disastrous consequences for the U.S., but too many Americans still don’t understand how closely linked these two headline conflicts are, and American policy has yet to confront the reality that Syria and Ukraine are part of the same mission for Russia – the destruction of the post-WWII architecture for the West. To achieve this goal, Russia has pursued a clear policy of disruption, chaos and destabilization – in Ukraine and the Middle East – in order to force the West to have to partner with Russia to “resolve” the crises it has created. . . The Kremlin has been opportunistic and decisive in grabbing a position of strength – in the Middle East and in Europe – while U.S. attention has waned and retracted.”
“What Russia has really been up to, has escaped Western pundits. On the surface, Russia worked cooperatively with Western states to conclude the pact with Iran. Unlike other Western nations that celebrate the agreement, Russia like Iran, emerged from the negotiation in a much stronger position. Now Russia eagerly sells military weapons to Iran, (including the anti-aircraft missile system, the S-300) and shows itself a friend to the Shia in Iran, Iraq, and Syria. As Russia exercises its military muscle, the rest of the region has awakened to the fact that the U.S. is not the quintessential player it once was. Mr. Putin will now be calling the shots” (S. Douglas Woodward, The Next Great War in the Middle East: Russia Prepares to Fulfill the Prophecy of Gog and Magog, 116-118).
Truly, Russia is emerging as the dominant player in the Middle East. Everything is shifting in Russia’s favor while a distinctly anti-American sentiment is growing. American weariness for war is only surpassed by Russia’s eagerness to take up the reins. Two additional authors have observed that Russia is actively moving to fill the void left by the U.S. scale-back in the region:
“Not since the Russian invasion of Afghanistan in the late 1970s and early 1980s have the Russians shown such penetrating interest and military involvement in the Middle East. . . .
“. . . Russia is back in the news, sending troops into Syria to support President Bashar al-Assad. Though paying lip service to the aim of halting the advance of ISIS forces in the region, these troops were really sent to help Assad fight off rebel forces attempting to topple his cruel and corrupt regime. . . .
“. . . Russia sees an opportunity to expand its influence in the Middle East. As the United States pulls back from its historic role as the leader in the Middle East, Russia appears willing to invest its resources in the region – to become the new power in the deadly game of thrones unfolding there.
“The rapidly shifting landscape of alliances and allies have upended a hundred years of assumed reality across the Middle East. Furthermore, Russia appears eager to shape this new reality to suit its own ends” (Charles Dyer and Mark Tobey, Clash of Kingdoms: What the Bible Says About Russia, ISIS, Iran, and the End Times, 14-16).
Yes, Russia has altered the reality in the Middle East and now has the upper hand. Anyone who thinks the United States dominates the Middle East needs to wake up and take an honest look. We have more or less withdrawn troops from Afghanistan and Iraq, both of which are openly gravitating toward Russia. The Saudi leadership is becoming friendly with Russia. Turkey, Iran, and Russia have a new alliance. Syria is now an open Russian base of operations. Iran has become emboldened and is sporting new Russian weapons systems. China is butting in where it doesn’t belong and now has a large presence in places like Pakistan. And so forth.
Earlier this year Putin began claiming that there are thousands upon thousands of ISIS fighters in Afghanistan – particularly Northern Afghanistan near the borders of his allies. Where do you think Russia is sticking its nose now? Afghanistan. As Radio Free Europe put it:
“Security experts have said that Russia has exaggerated the number of militants in order to justify its outreach to the Afghan Taliban and to suggest to Central Asian governments that they need support from Russia to defend themselves.”
Everywhere they claim to find terrorists, Russia interferes and eventually gains power through the chaos of war – and all because of the “War on Terror” excuse that President Bush handed them on a silver platter. It is a blanket excuse that seems to cover any act of aggression, tyranny, and savagery these days.
In a 2011 article “How the War on Terrorism Did Putin a Favor,” Time magazine noted Putin’s exploitation of the War on Terror for his own ends and explained how the “War on Terror” guise is used by Russia:
“Countries around the world realized the practical appeal of a war on terrorism. Over the past ten years, it has become a seemingly permanent call to arms, a kind of incantation used to dodge questions, build alliances and justify the use of force. No one, not even Bush, grasped this as quickly as Putin.
“Even before Putin became Russia’s President in early 2000, and long before the Twin Towers fell, he had invoked the idea of a war against global terrorism to justify Russia’s war in Chechnya. . . .
“There was scant evidence, however, that the Chechen rebels were part of some global Islamist terrorist network, as Putin and his government repeatedly claimed. The leader of the separatists at the time was Aslan Maskhadov, a former Red Army colonel who was closer to communism than Islamism. . . .
“In late 1999, when Bush was campaigning for the presidency, he vowed to start urging an end to the war. “Even as we support Russian reforms, we cannot support Russian brutality,” he said during a speech at the Reagan Library in California. . . .
“But when Bush announced his own war on terrorism, all this rhetoric quickly evaporated. Putin, who had been the first to call Bush with his sympathy after learning of the 9/11 attacks, graciously offered to help with the invasion of Afghanistan. He let the U.S. ship supplies through Russian territory and did not object to the U.S. setting up bases in Central Asia, where the local despots quickly caught on to the opportunity. Uzbek President Islam Karimov, for instance, allowed the U.S. to build a permanent base, perhaps hoping that his new alliance with the war on terrorism would help reduce U.S. scrutiny of alleged human-rights abuses in Uzbekistan. “It all flowed naturally into the picture of a global war on terror,” says Kasyanov, who by that time had been promoted to serve as Putin’s Prime Minister. “There was no more criticism . . . It just ceased to be a thorny issue.”
“. . . the idea of a global war on terrorism remains one of Putin’s key political narratives. It is trotted out to this day after every terrorist attack in the Russian heartland and during most discussions with Western leaders.”
To everyone who is privy to international affairs, Russia’s moves in the Middle East and Central Asia ought to be disturbing. Russian and Iranian troops just miles from Israel’s border should be alarming to everyone who loves peace. The fact that China will soon assume ownership of Israel’s largest port ought to raise some eyebrows, too. The brazenness with which Iran is hijacking foreign ships and targeting foreign drones and aircraft should likewise be concerning. Christians also should immediately recognize the alliance that is prophesied to lead the charge in the future Battle of Armageddon forming right before their eyes.
The entire Middle East has been flipped upside down by the War on Terror, and Russia is one of the only nations to have benefited. Her strategic position in the region is stronger than it ever has been. Meanwhile, the U.S. position is far weaker and Israel, love her or hate her, is in a compromising situation that sets up a future invasion by Anti-Christ forces.
Six years before the September 11, 2001 attacks, Jay Adams foresaw how Russia would attempt to entangle us in wars against Russia’s allies, thus giving Russia a pretext to simultaneously involve itself and demonize the United States. He predicted:
“Moscow plans to shift blame for global war onto the West by underhandedly provoking the U.S. and its allies into taking military action against Russian allies-of-old. With the collapse of communism, the U.S. has taken on the role of “world policeman.” This has provided Moscow an opportunity to lure the U.S. and its military allies into a trap, particularly by using the United Nations” (David N. Balmforth, America’s Coming Crisis: Prophetic Warnings, Divine Destiny, 153).
This game plan has come to fruition. The communists have managed to rope the United States into endless wars in the Middle East – wars that have cost trillions of dollars and thousands of lives, sewn discord at home, soiled our reputation abroad, and weakened our international position very noticeably. And out of the fog of war, the Russians have emerged on the high ground militarily and, they would like us to believe, morally. We now turn briefly to the event that made it all possible – the cowardly 9/11 attacks.
Who perpetrated 9/11? This has been one of the enduring questions of our age. I don’t know the exact answer and I believe anyone who claims they know precisely who ordered and carried out the attacks is lying or deluded. However, we know that the official narrative is bogus and filled with more holes than Swiss cheese. We also definitively know some of the individuals and entities involved in either carrying out the attacks, assisting in the operation, obstructing justice, or in the subsequent cover up.
We know, for instance, that five Israelis – several of them Mossad agents – were arrested in New York on 9/11 cheering and celebrating while watching the Twin Towers burn. And they just happened to be working for a Mossad front company and carrying plane tickets for flights leaving the country almost immediately from various airports. They later said on Israeli TV that they had been sent to film the event. Immediately after 9/11, we also uncovered the largest ever spy ring in U.S. history operating domestically. Whose spy ring was it? It was Israeli. In total, just preceding and just after 9/11, 200 Israeli spies were arrested. And we know that Israeli spies have a habit of filtering stolen intelligence to Russia and China. Search the Jonathan Pollard case for one of the most infamous cases of Israeli spying and transfer of state secrets to our enemies via Israel.
We also know that demolition charges were used to bring down not only the Twin Towers, but WTC Building 7 which was not hit by a plane and only had minimal fires before it disintegrated and collapsed neatly and quickly into its own footprint. Numerous eyewitnesses heard and even saw explosions not related to the planes hitting the buildings (and at least one that went off in the basement before the first plane struck), and there was extensive damage on the lower floors of the towers. Some of the eyewitnesses have since died mysterious deaths. The owner of WTC 7, Larry Silverstein, also admitted – in a clip which you can find on YouTube – that he agreed to demolish the building hours after the other towers, which he also owned and had recently insured against terrorist attacks, had already fallen.
We know that Vice President Dick Cheney was actively monitoring the situation and gave stand-down orders to the military around D.C. This was attested to by Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta who witnessed Cheney confirm stand-down orders to an aide. NORAD was also running a drill that same day which simulated an attack on the United States – yet these prepared and ready military units were ordered away from the real-world events taking place in New York, Washington, and Pennsylvania.
We know that there was massive insider trading happening just before and during the attacks, proving foreknowledge of the event. The occurrence was so serious that numerous nations around the world initiated investigations into it. Some have even called the extent of the insider trading “unprecedented.” And don’t forget the $2.3 Trillion that Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld announced on September 10th, 2001, could not be accounted for. It’s probably a coincidence that the “plane” that struck the Pentagon on September 11th hit precisely in the accounting offices where the investigation into missing $2.3 Trillion was taking place. And speaking of foreknowledge, Willie Brown, the mayor of San Francisco, publicly said that he was warned not to fly on September 11th. Other big-name figures received similar warnings not to be in D.C. or New York, or not to travel, on that fateful day.
We know because of the scholarly research of Dr. Steven Jones, among others, that thermite or thermate was used to weaken the support columns inside the WTC buildings. The molten pools of steel caused by this hot-burning substance have been attested to by numerous credible eyewitnesses including firefighters and first responders (and, indeed, was captured on video footage), yet which has been conveniently denied by our government.
We know that the 9/11 Commission, NIST, and other government organizations have concealed, covered up, and lied about information relative to the investigation. For instance, they lied about the U.S. government and Pentagon never having envisioned terrorists hijacking planes and flying them into buildings, and therefore were unprepared. That is pure fiction. Our military prepared for exactly such a scenario on multiple occasions. Indeed, in the 60s, our Joint Chiefs of Staff proposed Operation Northwoods to President Kennedy. It involved hijacking planes and perpetrating bombings on U.S. soil so they could blame it all on terrorists as a pretext for war with Cuba. President Kennedy rejected the vile plan. Additionally, government officers violated the law and shipped out the WTC evidence (i.e. the rubble) on ships headed for Red China. In nearly every way possible, the government violated its own protocols, lied to the public, covered up information, botched the investigation, failed to answer the numerous questions raised by the families of the victims and research entities like Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, and have concealed the truth at every turn. Like I said in Russia’s case, where there’s smoke there’s fire – where there’s a cover up, there’s a conspiracy.
These are mere bullet points. Entire books can and have been written documenting the inconsistencies in the official story – books such as Jim Marrs’ The Terror Conspiracy. And numerous researchers like James Corbett and Alex Jones have put out documentaries investigating the conspiracy. The focus of this article, however, is not who brought down the Twin Towers or how it was done. Rather, the focus is on how Russia benefited from the attacks. We should also discuss the possibility that Russian agents, or American agents working for the worldwide Satanic communist conspiracy, were directly involved.
From what was detailed earlier, we know that a common communist tactic is to commit false-flag terror attacks and blame it on Muslim terrorists as a pretext for foreign war. This is precisely what happened on 9/11. We know that there was a cover up by intelligence organizations – organizations which have long been compromised by communist agents. Indeed, John Brennan was the CIA’s deputy executive director at the time of the attacks. Brennan was an admitted communist in the past and has been one of the chief false accusers that Donald Trump is a Russian agent. The head of the FBI during the September 11th attacks was also none other that Robert Mueller – the failed and fraudulent lead investigator into the phony Trump-Russia collusion hoax. President George W. Bush was also a member of Skull and Bones, an elite secret society at Yale that is thought to be an off-shoot chapter of the Order of Illuminati. The lead positions in the U.S. government and intelligence community at the time of the attacks were filled with traitors and conspirators.
But before we discuss communist infiltration of the U.S. system, let’s briefly speak about the Israeli Mossad. This elite intelligence/assassination outfit has been blamed by many people, including numerous U.S. military officers, as the guilty party on 9/11. Mossad seems a plausible perpetrator of the 9/11 attacks, or at least an ally of the CIA or other shadowy U.S. intelligence cliques. Yet, we need to recognize that the Russians have compromised Israel as well! Indeed, the Russian mafia – which is nothing but the Russian intelligence services with a new name – has taken over large chunks of Israel. Author Robert Friedman wrote:
“Of all the nations where the Russian mob has established a presence, none has been more deeply compromised than the State of Israel, America’s staunchest ally in the volatile Middle East. More than 800,000 Russian Jews have mad aliyah or settled in Israel since the first massive wave of immigration in the 1970s. The Russians took advantage of Israel’s most sacred law – the Right of Return, which guarantees Jews the right to return to their ancestral homeland, where they would receive citizenship and live as free men and women outside the odious yoke of anti-Semitism. ” . . .
“But just as in Brighton Beach, Russian immigration to Israel has brought a more unwelcome element – the vor v zakonye and their criminal minions. Ten percent of Israel’s five million Jews are now Russian, and 10 percent of the Russian population “is criminal,” according to NYPD notes of a briefing in Manhattan by Israeli police intelligence official Brigadier General Dan Ohad.
“”There is not a major Russian organized crime figure who we are tracking who does not also carry an Israeli passport,” says senior State Department official Jonathan Winer. . . .
“Russia’s criminal aristocracy covets Israeli citizenship “because they know Israel is a safe haven for them,” said Leder. “We do not extradite citizens.”
“”The Russians then use the safe haven to travel around the world and rape and pillage,” added Moody.
“Israeli police officials estimate that Russian mobsters have poured more than $4 billion of dirty money into Israel’s economy, though some estimates range as high as $20 billion. They have purchased factories, insurance companies, and a bank . . . One of Leder’s greatest fears is that the Russians will compromise Israel’s security by buying companies that work for the military-industrial complex. The mobsters, in fact, attempted to purchase a gas and oil company that maintains strategic reserves for Israel’s military. “They could go to the stock market and buy a company that’s running communications in the military sector,” he complained. . . .
“With two decades of unimpeded growth, the Russian Mafiya has succeeded in turning Israel into its very own “mini-state,” in which it operates with virtual impunity. Although many in international law enforcement believe that Israel is by now so compromised that its future as a nation is imperiled, its government, inexplicably, has done almost nothing to combat the problem. . . .
“”Israel is going to have to do something,” says James Moody. “They could lose their whole country. The mob is a bigger threat than the Arabs”” (Robert Friedman, Red Mafiya: How the Russian Mob Has Invaded America,” 276-282).
The Russian mafia, controlled by the KGB, GRU, SVR, and other Russian intelligence services, has massive influence in Israel. But has Russian intelligence/mafia infiltrated the Israeli government and intelligence services? Some sources say that direct Russian penetration into the Mossad has not been nearly as successful as in other nations. However, other sources disagree. The Jerusalem Post, for instance, ran an article stating:
“The depth of the penetration by the Soviet Union’s KGB and GRU (military intelligence), or of the intelligence services of communist satellite states, has been testified to by a long line of agents who were convicted in Israel from the 1950s through to the 1990s. It is a long and impressive list of “moles,” quality agents that penetrated every important department in Israel.”
The article listed numerous individuals who have been detected as Soviet spies, such as Colonel Shimon Levison, Abraham Marcus Klingsberg and his wife, Zeev Avni, and others. It then went on to say:
“These are the serious and important spies that caused the most damage to the Israeli defense and intelligence establishment. Of course, there were many additional spies, at varying levels of importance, who were discovered and arrested, including Shabtai Kalmanovich, Gregory Londin and Efraim Samuel (who spied for Romania).
“There were those who were discovered, but who did not have their identities published or stand trial due to a lack of evidence or out of other considerations. One such person was an employee of Israel Aerospace Industries who was acquainted with the Lavi fighter jet program in the 1980s and was fired because of the suspicions against him, but was not put on trial.
“It is very likely that there were those who penetrated, spied and were never caught. The Soviet intelligence method was “quantity that becomes quality.” They recruited and ran hundreds, if not thousands, of agents in the hope that a few of them, or at least one of them, would ascend to the elite and become a quality agent. In this way the KGB tried to infiltrate agents into Israel during the waves of aliya from the Soviet Union, which began with a trickle in the 1960s and 1970s and became a heavy flow in the 1980s.”
Yes, Israel has been a particular target for communist machinations, if for no other reason than the extraordinary number of Jews who immigrated to Israel from the Soviet Union. Both the Russian mob and communist intelligence (an oxymoron) have had noticeable success in infiltrating Israel. And while Mossad might not be as compromised as perhaps the CIA, it is verifiably true that the Russians and Chinese have had no problem getting Israeli spies to give or sell them U.S. military secrets and technology. Jonathan Pollard, who was recently released from prison, was an American Jew convicted of spying for Israel. His information, sold by Israel to the USSR, gave the Evil Empire classified information about America’s nuclear deterrent to the Soviets.
How is this despicable traitor viewed in Israel, ostensibly America’s greatest ally? In Israel, Pollard has been crowned a national hero and even had a street named after him! According to Israeli news, Israel’s warmongering leader Benjamin Netanyahu, who is currently under investigation for bribery and fraud, petitions for Pollard’s extradition to Israel every time he meets with U.S. politicians. Perhaps, then, it should not be surprising to know that the two largest spy rings uncovered on U.S. soil have been Israeli and communist. And who is to say that elements within these two nefarious groups did not team up to perpetrate an event that would lure the United States into a Middle Eastern conflict? Or who is to say that Mossad agents secretly beholden to Moscow were not the ones arrested in New York? It is not as cut and dry as some anti-Israel fanatics have asserted.
Now let’s discuss the CIA. From the very beginning, the CIA has been little more than a communist front. From OSS days to the present, the CIA has harbored and recruited communists. Numerous Soviet spies working for the CIA have been uncovered. Multiple CIA heads have even admitted holding “former” communist ideologies or voting for CPUSA candidates. Soviet defector Ladislav Bittman wrote a book titled The KGB and Soviet Disinformation: An Insider’s View. In it, he spoke of how the CIA was targeted and thoroughly sideswiped by the communists. He wrote:
“The decade of the 1970s was a period of continuing crisis for the Central Intelligence Agency. The once highly secret agency was plagued by serious internal problems and unparalleled public attacks. Investigations by the House and Senate and disclosures of the agency’s previous attempts to assassinate foreign leaders, spy on Americans, and engage in other questionable activities shook the agency to its foundations . . . These developments left American intelligence operations in demoralized disarray and the intelligence community divided and confused.
“Was the decline a natural and spontaneous event? Evidence presented by the American mass media points in that direction, but it leaves some disturbing questions. After all, one of the major objectives of the KGB is to confuse and demoralize its American counterpart. . . .
“The CIA staff was reduced by several thousand officers during the 1970s . . . The situation provided an extraordinary opportunity for the KGB to recruit several CIA employees as Soviet agents. . . .
“. . . Thirteen individuals were charged with espionage in the United States from 1975-1980, ten of them on behalf of the Soviet Union, and six of the defendants were formerly affiliated with the Central Intelligence Agency or one of its contractors. The security system designed by the agency to weed out moles and enemy agents was an obvious failure” (Ladislav Bittman, The KGB and Soviet Disinformation: An Insider’s View, 183-185).
KGB infiltration of the CIA didn’t start in the 1970s. Before the CIA was the OSS. This organization was totally swamped with communists. M. Stanton Evans wrote:
“[C]lose students of such matters have long regarded OSS as the most heavily infiltrated of the wartime units, with estimates of the number of Communists ranging as high as a hundred staffers. . . .
“Though its posthumous reputation as a den of Communists and Soviet agents would exceed that of OWI, less was known about the OSS back in the 1940s. The secret nature of the service allowed its employees to roam about the globe at will, engaging in all sorts of actions concealed from Congress and the public” (M. Stanton Evans, Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America’s Enemies, 92).
Anatoliy Golitsyn, one of the most credible of all Soviet defectors and one of the chief figures to warn that the Soviet Union’s “collapse” was a fraud designed to deceive the West, also testified that the communists had infiltrated the CIA:
“The Central Intelligence Agency was already penetrated in 1958 – by both the KGB and Chinese intelligence. In 1958, the Agency lost its most important source, Colonel Popov of Soviet Military Intelligence [GRU], who could have provided strategic information had he not been compromised by KGB penetration, arrested by the KGB, and burned alive in the GRU’s crematorium furnace” (Anatoliy Golitsyn, The Perestroika Deception, 207).
The CIA was so thoroughly saturated with communists that when Golitsyn defected, he was met by CIA traitors working for Moscow. Cliff Kincaid wrote:
“A former government official told me what happened when Golitsyn defected and was brought into a room to be debriefed. He looked around and realized that half the CIA operatives in front of him were KGB double agents whose reports he had read on the other side.
“This has been the problem all along – our intelligence agencies have been heavily penetrated by enemy agents and we have not been prepared for what’s coming” (Cliff Kincaid, Back from the Dead: The Return of the Evil Empire, 35).
As quoted earlier, the communists have an obsession with using others to do their dirty work while they govern or assist from the shadows. CIA agents must be high up on their list of assets to acquire. Imagine carrying out a terrorist operation against a nation using their own intelligence services! If and when the evidence started to come out, it would lead directly back to the government which would only serve to further demoralize a population, fracture the government, and create fear, mistrust, and resentment – a perfect divide and conquer operation. Soviet defector Colonel Stanislav Lunev spoke of this exact point:
“Although most Westerners don’t realize it, the GRU is one of the primary instructors of terrorists worldwide. The Communist Party Central Committee specifically authorized the GRU to train terrorists in order to further the USSR’s political goals and support its allies. After all, what could be better than to have other people commit terrorist actions that further your own goals?
“There was also the GRU Special Center for the training of terrorists at GRU headquarters. The KGB provided financial and communications support to terrorists, but the operational training and support was reserved for the GRU. The GRU has trained terrorists from almost every country in the world, including Iraq, Libya, Iran, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, Italy, Germany, Spain, Turkey, and Latin America. Where no terrorist groups existed in countries inimical to the USSR, the GRU would help to form them, and then provide them the necessary training, funding, and organizational support. So, for example, while the terrorists involved in the World Trade Center bombing [of 1993] may never have attended GRU training, the GRU was responsible for the formation of the terrorist group that they belonged to” (Stanislav Lunev, Through the Eyes of the Enemy, 80-81).
Konstantin Preobrazhensky, a KGB defector, made this interesting observation after 9/11. He stated:
“A key distinction between Russian and American attitudes towards Islamic terrorism is that while for America terrorism is largely seen as an exterior menace, Russia uses terrorism as an object as a tool of the state for manipulation in and outside the home country. Islamic terrorism is only part of the world of terrorism. Long before Islamic terrorism became a global threat, the KGB had used terrorism to facilitate the victory of world Communism.
“This leads to the logical connection between Russian and Islamic terrorism. The late Alexander Litvinenko, poisoned in London in November, 2006, told me that his former FSB colleagues had trained famous Al-Qaeda terrorists Ayman Al-Zawahiri and Juma Namangoniy during the 1980s and 1990s. Ayman Al-Zawahiri, one of the world’s most wanted terrorists, has been responsible for the murder of U.S. nationals outside the United States. Before his death, Juma Namangoniy (Jumabai Hojiyev), a native of Soviet Uzbekistan, was a right-hand man of Osama bin Laden in charge of the Taliban’s northern front in Afghanistan. . . .
“Mohammed Atta, the pilot of the first plane to crash into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, had met with a senior Iraqi intelligence agent in Prague, Czech Republic, five months before the attack. But Iraqi intelligence was just a client of Russia’s intelligence service. It brings a new understanding to the fact that President Putin was the first foreign President to call President Bush on 9/11. One may conjecture that he knew in advance what was to happen” (Konstantin Preobrazhensky, “Russia and Islam are not Separate: Why Russia backs Al-Qaeda“).
Due to some interesting research by Pilots for 9/11 Truth, I’m skeptical whether the planes that took off from the airports that fateful morning were the same which hit the targets. That being said, Mohammed Atta or other Arab terrorists may have still been involved. And if they were, it is certain they received at least part of their training from Soviet-sponsored entities. A number of the alleged hijackers were also trained by U.S. intelligence services.
Though communists love to recruit others – especially native citizens of their target country – they are also prepared with literal armies of men spread throughout the world to commit terrorism, sabotage, assassination, and so forth when the order comes. I again quote from Colonel Lunev regarding these specialized forces spread throughout our nation and the free world and the type of operations they’re prepared and trained to carry out. Plug this information into our present context and ask whether it is plausible that communist agents either carried out or assisted native-born American traitors, or even Mossad agents on their payroll, in carrying out the horrid attacks on September 11, 2001. In 1998, Lunev testified:
“Though most Americans don’t realize it, America is already penetrated by Russian military intelligence to the extent that arms caches lie in wait for use by Russian special forces – or Spetznatz.
“As a GRU officer, my main mission was to prepare for war. I can tell you that for the Soviet Union and for the Russian Federation, America was and is the main expected wartime adversary. Other countries count only as a means to attack America.
“Russia remains terrified of the power of America, and Russian military intelligence does everything it can to prepare for a war that it considers inevitable. Let me be very clear about this. The GRU is still recruiting agents and is still preparing for war with the United States as we approach the supposedly peaceful, post-Cold War millennium. . . .
“These elite special forces are under the control of my former employer, the GRU . . . They penetrate countries shortly before a war and perform military sabotage that Americans would call terrorism. Some Spetznatz groups perform as assassination squads. These soldiers are familiar with all types of weapons, explosives, and mines; and they are experts at killing quickly without weapons as well. They are also trained to drive all types of military vehicles, including helicopters and small airplanes. They must be fluent in at least two foreign languages. English is the language of choice.
“During wartime, they would try to assassinate as many American leaders as possible, as well as their families. They would also blow up power stations, telephone switching systems, dams, and any strategic targets that cannot be taken out with long range weapons . . . In Soviet and Russian military doctrine, nuclear weapons are not merely for deterrence; they are to be used, and Spetznatz has them available.
“Spetznatz troops are currently training inside the United States. They regularly enter the country as foreign tourists, using fake passports and their knowledge of foreign languages to pass as Germans or Eastern Europeans.
“They are the best supplied troops in the Russian military. One of the GRU’s major tasks is to find drop sites for their supplies of clothes, cash, and special equipment – including even small nuclear devices, the so-called “suitcase bombs.” . . .
“It is surprisingly easy to smuggle nuclear weapons into the United States. . . .
“In wartime, many GRU officers – all of whom are men – would go undercover to directly aid the Spetznatz forces.
“These wartime plans were fully in place during the Caribbean Crisis – or Cuban Missile Crisis, as Americans refer to it – and remain fully in place today. In 1962, Spetznatz forces were deployed all over the free world, ready to commit acts of sabotage. When no orders came to “go into action,” they destroyed all evidence of their presence and went home. They were undetected and operated freely during the hottest period of the Cold War. Now, when America is less alert to the danger, think of what Spetznatz could do” (Stanislav Lunev, Through the Eyes of the Enemy, 22-28).
Indeed, think of what militarily-trained secret enemy agents operating among us could do. Could they rig a building to blow in a controlled demolition? Could they support native American traitors in carrying out a coordinated attack against their own country? Could they, in conjunction with traitors in our intelligence services or the intelligence services of hostile nations, perpetrate a “terrorist” attack and melt away into the background while the controlled press blames it on Muslims? A better question is: Is there anything the communists wouldn’t do to take down their “main enemy” in what they consider an active war to the death?
The highly credible intelligence defector Viktor Suvorov, whose books Chief Culprit and Icebreaker should be on every bookshelf, presented a potential scenario of Spetznatz agents using small planes to bomb targets in Washington, D.C. during either peacetime or the first days of a future world war. He began:
“I do not know how or when World War Three will start. I do not know exactly how the Soviet high command plans to make use of spetsnaz in that war: the first world war in which spetsnaz will be a major contributor. I do not wish to predict the future. In this chapter I shall describe how spetsnaz will be used at the beginning of that war as I imagine it. It is not my task to describe what will happen. But I can describe what might happen.”
Then Suvorov described a long list of potential terrorist attacks that Spetznatz would commit. He remarked: “The terror is carried out in the name of already existing extremist groups not connected in any way with the Soviet Union, or in the name of fictitious organisations.” He then mentioned one method of Spetznatz-inspired terrorist attack that is particularly interesting considering what happened on 9/11:
“Three men open the doors of the van, roll out the fuselage of a light aircraft and attach its wings. A minute later its motor bursts into life. The plane takes off and disappears into the sky. It has no pilot. It is controlled by radio with the aid of very simple instruments, only slightly more complicated than those used by model aircraft enthusiasts. The plane climbs to about 200 metres and immediately begins to descend in the direction of the White House. A minute later a mighty explosion shakes the capital of the United States. . . .
“Three minutes later a second plane sweeps across the centre of the city and there is a second explosion in the place where the White House once stood. The second plane has taken off from a section of highway under construction, and has a quite different control system. Two cars with radio beacons in them have been left earlier in the middle of the city. The beacons have switched on automatically a few seconds before the plane’s take-off. The automatic pilot is guided by the two beacons and starts to descend according to a previously worked-out trajectory. The second plane has been sent off by a second group operating independently of the first one.
“It was a simple plan: if the first plane did not destroy the White House the second would. If the first plane did destroy the White House then a few minutes later all the heads of the Washington police would be near where the explosion had taken place. The second plane would kill many of them” (Viktor Suvorov, Spetsnatz: The Story Behind the Soviet SAS, see chapter 15).
While Suvorov stated that his hypothetical scenarios are just that, what we saw on 9/11 was eerily similar. Nothing should be out of the realm of possibility when dealing with communists – the greatest mass-murderers the world has ever known.
Not many conspiracy researchers have looked into the potential connection between Russia/communism and 9/11, yet I believe the connection is strong. It deserves to be explored in all seriousness. While it seems painfully evident that some American higher-ups in government and intelligence were involved with the attacks, could these evildoers have actually been communist agents?
In addition to former-KGB agent Konstantin Preobrazhensky cited earlier, another Soviet intelligence asset, the former head of Romanian intelligence Ion Mihai Pacepca, has claimed that 9/11 came about because of Soviet propagandizing and radicalizing in the Middle East. I don’t find Pacepa to be the most credible of defectors, particularly on the topic of the Middle East, yet his statement is worth sharing. In a March 1, 2004 Front Page Mag article titled From Russia With Terror, that I can no longer find online except in excerpt form, he alleged:
“September 11, 2001 was directly rooted in a joint Soviet/Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) operation conceived in the aftermath of the 1967 Six-Day Arab-Israeli War. The object of this joint operation was to repair Moscow’s prestige by turning the Islamic world against Israel and by creating a rabid and violent hatred for its main supporter, the United States. The strategy was to portray the US, this land of freedom, as a Nazi-style “imperial-Zionist country” financed by Jewish money and run by a rapacious “Council of the Elders of Zion” (the Kremlin’s epithet for the US Congress), the aim of which was allegedly to transform the rest of the world into a Jewish fiefdom. In other words, the heart of the joint plan was to convert the historical Arab and Islamic hatred of the Jews into a new hatred of the United States. We threw many millions of dollars at this gigantic task, which involved whole armies of intelligence officers.”
I do not believe that Islamic terrorists were responsible for 9/11, though their hatred of the United States and Israel is genuine. They may have assisted or been the front men for the operation, and certainly they were made into the scapegoat, but there was a greater power at work – the invisible hand that guides the nations. This hand, ideologically, is Red. And frequently it extends from the Soviet Empire to strike others around the globe.
I believe it is extremely plausible that communist agents in high places in the U.S. intelligence community and government, assisted by secret military operatives or foreign assets, acted on orders from abroad to create a pretext to get the United States into an endless cycle of Middle Eastern war that would weaken us in preparation for the communist world’s planned final blow against what little remains of the free world. And that pretext was 9/11 and the unconscionable slaughter of 3,000 Americans. They were sacrificed on the altar of the Satanic Elite in their bid to establish communistic totalitarianism over the entire earth.
Perhaps communist infiltrators or agents had nothing directly to do with 9/11 and it really was a home-grown inside job. Be that as it may, the communists have certainly supported and gained from our War on Terror! In fact, I dare say that Russia and the communist world have gained more than anyone else. Communism is more powerful and prevalent now than it was in 2001. The U.S. government has been plunged even deeper into the socialistic abyss. Russia’s position in the Middle East is now far stronger than any other nation’s. The War on Terror has propelled Russia to the forefront of world politics, made her a seemingly “respectable” mediator in world events, and turned KGB agent and mass murderer Vladimir Putin into something of a hero in the eyes of millions. And meanwhile, the United States is severely depleted militarily, grossly in debt, torn into factions, and viewed as a pariah, as a bully, and as an unhinged superpower that likes to prey on smaller nations and which needs punished by an international coalition (led, of course, by Russia and China).
As I recognize all that Russia has gained and the United States has lost through our nightmarish War on Terror, and every time I look at a gut-wrenching picture of the World Trade Centers in flames, I’m forced to ask the eternal question that so often leads to the true perpetrator of a crime: Cui bono? Who benefited?
