We Remember September 11, 2001

The anniversary of the attacks on 9-11 presents a day to reflect, remember and pay tribute to those we lost.   I am sure most of us remember exactly where we were at the moment when we found out our nation was under attack.  Our nation was forever changed by those moments on September 11th, 2001.

Perhaps we can share our memories together as we think about the anniversary of this date.

Where were you on that day?  And what memories are most vivid for you?

~ The Better Option ~

He stared toward a cloudless sky; a tear was present in his eye.
What did he see I wondered aloud – this man of strength did not look proud.

Transfixed we watched through a camera’s lens, strangers before, now oddly friends.
What are his eyes held witness to? What’s stirring such tears of painful hue?

Electronically we were connected, our lives attached, a stopped nation affected.
What horror was there, upon his gaze? – What caused such pain amid the haze?

Some sounds not known were heard aloud – and people screamed amid the crowd.
We struggled to sense what view they saw; the fireman’s face was present more.

His sorrowed eyes bleeding despair – my God, what was he seeing there?
I could not move, we stood transfixed, my view of hell would soon be nixed.

He bore my witness through those flames, this hell on earth from terror planes.
Our Eagle screamed….. the metal cracked; two once proud towers stood attacked.

The human toll still yet unknown, our feeling safe was overthrown.
Finally, as I stared, I recognized….. what was causing those tears in that fireman’s eyes.

Oh – My – God, humanity was being lost – and helplessly we saw the cost.
The sound of people,… people, jumping down, from towers strong in our New York town.

Locked in horror, frozen, all there stood – bewildered eyes saw nothing good.
We viewed a scene of great despair…amid evil, smoke, and hate filled air.

Connected witness we became, to terror’s rage and human pain.
Trapped atop a blinding heat, were once moms and dads upon the street.

A “better option“?… caused by hate – to leap the flames and own your fate.
More horrid thoughts we’d never known, not from before the glass had blown.

Theirs was not an option for the stair, their only choice hands locked in prayer.
I cannot grasp the thoughts that crossed – the minds of those loved, soon to be lost.

As victims now…. their life soon ceased, a hurling body – soul released.
and for those who bore witness, my God the pain; those memories seared will long remain.

Connected all we stood aghast, all witness to the terror blast.
Their bodies torn; their spirit lost; memories now……. a priceless cost.

But what we have now to decide; reflecting on this place they died.
The Blood-soaked ground, the empty skies, our throat in knots, our tear-filled eyes.

A memory now so deeply burned, their sacrifice for us was learned.
The hurt, the pain, the bitter sorrow, must guide us now toward tomorrow.

For those we loved, and families lost, no gold of man can count the cost.
Through the eagles’ tears our nations price, we must honor those of sacrifice.

How do we honor such courage bold and warm our souls despite the cold.
A daunting charge ‘mid our mortal stage – to reflect that courage amid our rage.

Two decades past and now we find – our hearts, our souls, our tears, our mind.
Still harken back and feel those tears; the wound -the scar- through many years.

Memories honored must remain, our task in life to cherish that pain…
For souls we lost, and sorrow bound – we must always respect such hallowed ground.

Salman Rushdie on Ventilator After Horrific Attack in New York


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on August 13, 2022 | Sundance 

For many people Salman Rushdie is perhaps the most well-known free speech defender in the current generation. He certainly is one of the bravest people who originally spoke out against Islamic extremism with his 1988 book Satanic Verses.

Iranian leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini issued a fatwa calling for Rushdie’s death over what he claimed were blasphemous references to Islam. A $3 million bounty was placed on his head for anyone who kills him. The fatwa was never rescinded, and Rushdie spent well over a decade hiding under protective custody.

In recent years Rushdie has been a visible advocate for free speech and has given multiple speeches on issues around the need for freedom of expression. During a speech yesterday he was attacked and stabbed multiple times.

[New York] – Author Salman Rushdie is likely to lose one of his eyes and is currently on a ventilator after he was attacked on stage at a literary event in upstate New York on Friday, a report said.

“The news is not good,” the 75-year-old writer’s agent, Andrew Wylie, told The New York Times. “Salman will likely lose one eye; the nerves in his arm were severed; and his liver was stabbed and damaged,” said Wylie.

Rushdie, who is still unable to speak, was attacked by a lone man while speaking at an event at the Chautauqua Institution in Chautauqua, NY, about 55 miles south of Buffalo.

He was scheduled to speak about the United States as a place for exiled authors “as a home for freedom of expression,” according to the institute. After the stabbing, he was transported by helicopter to a hospital in Erie, Pennsylvania, where he underwent surgery.

[…] Rushdie’s alleged attacker, 24-year-old Hadi Matar, of Fairview, New Jersey, was arrested at the scene by a state trooper who was assigned to the lecture. (read more)

Was the Terrorist Attack in Colleyville a Replay of the Terrorist Attack in Garland in 2015?


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on January 17, 2022 | sundance | 230 Comments

I have intentionally not written about the terrorist attack in Colleyville, Texas, because my initial review saw significant parallels to the first ISIS attack on U.S. soil which took place in 2015 at Garland Texas, carried out by Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi.

In the Garland attack the FBI organized, facilitated and coordinated the attack. The FBI even drove the terrorists to the attack venue and then left once the shooting began. Yes, you read that correctly, the first ISIS attack on U.S. soil was organized by the FBI. {Go Deep} CTH dug deep on the 2015 Garland attack, so it wasn’t too difficult to spot the similarities between Garland 2015 and Colleyville 2022.

♦ Colleyville, Texas – Malik Faisal Akram, who was known as Faisal Akram, had a well known Islamic extremist history to British and American intelligence. Akram ranted, prior to his travel to the U.S, that he wished he had died in the 9/11 terror attacks. He was a regular visitor to Pakistan, and reportedly a member of the Tablighi Jamaat group set up to ‘purify’ Islam. To say the U.S. intelligence system knew Faisal Akram would be an understatement.  The FBI knowledge of Akram has now been confirmed by The Daily Mail.

So, the questions become: (1) how did Faisal Akram gain a visa to enter the United States? (2) Who did he visit?  (3) Who gave him the weapon?  (4) Who facilitated his travel and targeting operations; and lastly, (5) who financed and assisted him in his attack?

Unfortunately, the most obvious answer is just like the 2015 Garland example, the FBI was his enabler.

Akram entered the synagogue around 11am Saturday morning as a service was live streamed online. Akram shouted anti-Semitic rants at the Jewish members, took them hostage and then demanded the release of convicted terrorist Aafia Siddiqu, whom he referred to as his ‘sister’. The location in Colleyville seems significant, because ‘Lady al-Qaeda’ is being held in a federal prison about 20 miles from Colleyville, at FMC Carswell in Fort Worth.

(Daily Mail) –  The Texas rabbi who escaped from British gunman Malik Faisal Akram after a 12-hour stand-off on Saturday said he welcomed him into his synagogue because he ‘looked like he needed shelter’ and gave him a cup of tea.  

Rabbi Charlie Cytron-Walker also explained that he threw a chair at Akram at Beth Israel Congregation in Colleyville, Texas, on Saturday so that he and two other hostages were able to escape.

[…] The rabbi also revealed that towards the end of the stand-off, he feared he would be killed because the gunman wasn’t ‘getting what he wanted’. 

‘It didn’t look good. It didn’t sound good. We were terrified.’ 

The hostages only escaped when he threw a chair in the gunman’s face and bolted for the exit. 

SWAT teams killed the gunman afterwards, once all of the hostages were out safely. 

‘When I saw an opportunity where he wasn’t in a good position, I made sure the two gentlemen who were still with him, that they were ready to go. The exit wasn’t too far away. 

‘I told them to go, I threw a chair at the gunman and I headed to the door and all three of us were able to get out without even a shot being fired,’ he said. (read more)

BACKGROUND on FBI –  The FBI was fully aware of the Boston Marathon bombers, the Tsarnaev brothers, before they executed their plot.  The FBI took no action.  The FBI knew about the San Bernardino terrorists, specifically Tasfeen Malik, and were monitoring her phone calls and communications before her and Syed Farook executed their attack killing 14 people and leaving 22 others seriously injured.  The FBI took no action.  The FBI knew Colorado grocery store shooter Ahmad Alissa before he executed his attack.  The FBI took no action.

The FBI knew in advance of the Pulse Nightclub shooter (Omar Mateen) and were tipped off by the local sheriff. The FBI knew in advance of the San Bernardino Terrorists (Tashfeen Malik). The FBI knew in advance of the Boston Marathon Bombers (the Tsarnaev brothers) tipped off by Russians.  The FBI knew in advance of the Parkland High School shooter (Nikolas Cruz). The FBI knew in advance of the Fort Hood shooter (Nidal Hasan), and the FBI knew in advance of Colorado grocery store shooter Ahmad al-Aliwi Alissa.  The FBI took no action.

As mentioned, the case of the first recorded ISIS attack on U.S. soil was in Garland, Texas in 2015.  The FBI not only knew the shooters (Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi) in advance, BUT the FBI ALSO took the shooters to the venue and were standing only a few yards away when Simpson and Soofi opened fire.  Yes, you read that correctly – the FBI took the terrorists to the event and then watched it unfold.  “An FBI trainer suggested in an interview with “60 Minutes” that, had the attack been bigger, the agency’s numerous ties to the shooter would have led to a congressional investigation.”

Remember, shortly before the 2018 mid-term election, when Ceasar Syoc – a man living in his van – was caught sending “energetic material that can become combustible when subjected to heat or friction”, or what FBI Director Christopher Wray called “not hoax devices”?   Remember how sketchy everything about that was, including the child-like perpetrator telling a judge later that he was trying to walk back his guilty plea, because he was tricked into signing a confession for a crime he did not create.

Or more recently, the goofball plot to kidnap Gretchen Whitmer that involved 18 suspects, twelve of them actually working for the FBI as the plot was hatched?  And we cannot forget the January 6th. DC protest turned insurrection effort, which is clearly looking like an FBI inspired and coordinated effort.

Have we forgotten the Atlanta “Olympic Park Bombing”, and the FBI intentionally setting up transparently innocent, Richard Jewel?

Then, there’s the entirety of the FBI conduct in “Spygate”, the demonstrably evident FBI operation to conduct political surveillance against Donald Trump using their investigative authorities; and the downstream consequences of a massive institutional effort to cover up one of the biggest justice department scandals in the history of our nation.   The original effort against Donald Trump used massive resources from the DOJ and FBI.  Heck, the coverup operation using the Mueller/Weissmann special counsel used more than 50 investigative FBI agents alone.

And of course, the FBI still had 13 extra agents available to rush to a NASCAR racetrack to investigate a garage door pull-down rope that might have been perceived as a noose; but the serial rape of hundreds of teenage girls, eh, not-so-much effort – even when they are standing in front of the FBI begging for help.

[At this point, I am increasingly convinced by evidence the FBI themselves are the perpetrators involved in sex trafficking, human smuggling and abduction as part of their operational mission.]

It is important to realize what exactly happened in the case of the Olympic gymnasts and the rape of hundreds of teenage girls.  When the victims and parents told the FBI about what Larry Nassar was doing, the FBI did not bungle the investigation.  The FBI did not investigate.

But worse…. after the parents kept coming back to the FBI to ask what was going on, and report that other parents were now reporting that new rapes and assaults were ongoing, the FBI told those parents an investigation was ongoing.  Except it wasn’t. The FBI was lying.

As the FBI was telling the victims they were investigating Larry Nassar, the FBI was doing no such thing.  The FBI was lying to the victims and their families.  The FBI was not taking any action whatsoever to address the multitude of claims against Nassar.

After the FBI was caught lying about their conduct, they then lied to the internal oversight, the OIG, about everything surrounding their conduct.    The FBI didn’t make a mistake, or drop the proverbial ball, they intentionally and specifically maintained the sexual exploitation of teenage girls by doing absolutely nothing with the complaints they received.   This is not misconduct, this is purposeful.

Then, as if to apply salt to the open wound of severe FBI politicization….what did the FBI do with the Hunter Biden laptop?

[Notice I’ve set the issue of the disappearing Huma Abedin/Anthony Weiner laptop –in the known custody of the FBI– over there in the corner, next to missing investigation of the Awan brothers.]

My point is this…

What the Federal Security Service (FSB) is to the internal security of the Russian state; so too is the FBI in performing the same function for the U.S. federal government.

The FBI is a U.S. version of the Russian “State Police”; and the FBI is deployed -almost exclusively- to attack domestic enemies of those who control government, while they protect the interests of the U.S. Fourth Branch of Government.  That is the clear and accurate domestic prism to contextualize their perceived mission: “domestic violent extremists pose the greatest threat” to their objective.

Put another way, “We The People”, who fight against government abuse and usurpation, are the FBI’s actual and literal enemy.

Let me be very clear with another brutally obvious example.  Antifa could not exist as an organization, capable to organize and carry out violent attacks against their targets, without the full support of the FBI.   If the FBI wanted to arrest members of Antifa, who are actually conducting violence, they could do it easily – with little effort.

It is the absence of any action by the FBI toward Antifa, that tells us the FBI is enabling that violent extremist behavior to continue.  Once you accept that transparent point of truth, then, you realize the FBI definition of domestic violent extremism is something else entirely.

The FBI is not a law enforcement or investigative division of the U.S. Department of Justice.  The FBI is a political weapon of a larger institution that is now focused almost entirely toward supporting a radical communist agenda to destroy civil society in the United States.

The current mission of the FBI is to facilitate, preserve and protect the administration of Joe Biden.  The attack in Colleyville presents as a purposeful distraction from a multitude of extremely bad headlines overwhelming the administration as a direct result of leftist policy.

Something intentional happened to allow Faisal Akram entry into the U.S, and anyone who continues to push the fraudulent “honorable FBI rank and file talking point”, is, at this point in history, willfully and purposefully operating to deceive the American people on behalf of government interests who are intent on destroying us.

It is not a difference of opinion any longer.  It is now just a matter of accepting what is staring us in the face.

The Squad Brings Islam to America


by Tabitha Korol

Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and other squad members have been voted into representational positions, but they are not whom they profess to be.  Ungrateful for the opportunities, they are not here to Americanize, but to Islamize America, beginning with sowing the seeds of hate and discord.  Such is the purpose of the jihada.   

Saturday, September 11, 2021, was a time to reflect on the terrible tragedy that befell our country twenty years before.  As the never-ending grief resurfaces, we see that the qualities of sanctuary and personal freedoms that made America great have also attracted those who come with malice and villainy.  I am deeply troubled for those who fled from around the world with hopes for a better life, for they are finding here precisely what they escaped.      

Our homegrown communists and the new ingrates openly express their hostility.  Why stay, if this doesn’t suit you?  The ungracious people in the US Congress, particularly, have risen to positions that should be occupied by others more deserving.  One such is Ilhan Omar, who callously said of 9/11, “some people did something,” making light of the more than 3,000 Americans who died that day and later – the first responders, the cleaning crews, and the everyday Americans who ran through the streets, the debris underfoot and inhaling the ashes, hoping they might be of some help to another soul. 

Omar trivialized the attacks to erase the murderers’ Muslim identity, for they are her brethren.  She offered not a word of compassion and sorrow from the Muslim community to America.  She also wasted no time expressing her support of the anti-Semitic boycott-divestment-sanctions (BDS) movement and continues her numerous empty accusations against Israel, despite being called out for it on the Senate floor. 

Her disinformation campaign is given voice and validation; true or not, the damage is done.  Our school systems weaponize our own children; the textbooks elevate Islam over Judaism and Christianity, a Seattle high school canceled the 9/11 tribute so as not to offend – whom?  The indoctrination is pervasive.   Despite the Muslim terrorists’ martyrdom letters, our country aids in veiling their guilt.  Projection will eventually lay blame elsewhere.  The violence will continue on our streets, here and abroad, and they will topple the event as they did the buildings and much of our historic statuary.  

Rashida Tlaib and her squad use their positions to target charities that support the Jewish people.  They roll the truth on its head, artfully making themselves the victims, the protected class, inflating crimes against themselves, providing false statistics, and claiming they are denied basic rights.  The narrative is bogus, but effective.  Driving home their incessant suffering has resulted in more outspoken radicalized youth, increased voter and political participation, donations and volunteers. 

Tlaib squawked her earliest tirades when she entered the political scene.  She uttered undignified vulgarities in front of her son and America’s news viewers, yet asked to be treated with dignity.  The irony is lost on her.  She spews insults and animosity towards others, including then-President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump, and cries out for death to Israel and the Jews.  

To herphony dismay, she was born in America, but to “Palestinian” parents, Muslims dedicated to viewing the world as Dar Al Islam (House of Peace) and Dar al Harb (House of War).  She lives in the latter, hoping to bring America to Dar al Islam.  Tlaib would rather be Palestinian, except that there is no Palestine;  the name lacks validity.  Palestine did not exist in the past and does not exist now.  She knows that the term is meaningless, and she is bitter.    

Another resentment she bears isthat the glory days of Islam are gone, overshadowed by the successes of the western world. If the Golden Age was due to Islamic wisdom, why is there no Golden Age now?  We know that Islam’s gloryconsisted of great tolerance, expression of opinion, critical thinking, questioning all things, and harmony between all people. Thenwhy does it no longer exist?  Al-Razi of Rhazes (Muhammad ibn Zakariyā Rāzī), 865 – 925, clarified that their splendor existed in spite of Islam,  not because of Islam.  It existed because of the scholars, scientists, physicians, inventors and navigators they captured from other cultures.  Judeo-Christian values are the antithesis of Islam. 

On the day of her swearing-in ceremony, Congresswoman Tlaib took her oath to serve our country and observe the Constitution – on the Quran.  Her binding vow was to Allah.  She was dressed not as an American, but in the garment of her heritage, revealing her allegiance to her Bedouin tradition, her descendance from the nomadic Arab tribes that inhabit the Arabian Peninsula, Iraq, the Levant, and North Africa.  These itinerants, divided into tribes or clans, had neither the ability nor desire to set down roots; their culture was camel or goat herding.  They never establish permanency and have no government, language, monetary system, or literature unique to themselves.  To this day, the Bedouins journey with their herds into Israel, attempting a temporary settlement on land that Israel may havepartitioned for agriculture, national  parks or wildlife sanctuary, but lacking infrastructure, is not zoned for residency.  They protest that they cannot do as they choose, and they attract lawyers who are eager to engage in lawfare – the misuse of the legal system to delegitimize Israel.       

Above all, Rashida Tlaib was raised as the traditional 330 million Muslims who believe in violence against Mohammed’s sworn enemies, the Jews and the Christians.  Their major source of unity is their hatred; the male child is trained from toddlerhood to dedicate his life to terrorism because of Quranic dictates and their social reality.  The jihadi’s world is chaotic, filled with anxiety.  His life is dark, devoid of love and the joy of creativity, his hatred so fueling that he is made eager to fight alongside others to the death – for martyrdom and the promise of untold sexual gratification in heaven. 

The boy is raised without individuality, a faceless, covered, and unidentified gang member, adept in using deadly weapons and prepared to become a human bomb himself.  Tlaib is the female counterpart, the jihada, who seeks to be elevated from her lowly rank to command respect.  In an average family, a mother generally uses an exaggerated intonation and rhythm when speaking to her baby, but in Islam, it is psychotic babble that prevails among the desperate in the shame-honor environment.  The mother’s frightening world consists of female genital mutilation (FGM), honor killings, weaponized children, and a marriage that has been described as a series of rapes interrupted by childbirth, and the baby reacts in confusion and chaos. The radicalized female devalues her own gender because she has internalized her position in an Islamic family.  What resentment might Rashida have borne as surrogate mother to 13 siblings?  She must demand respect because it was never freely given or earned.        

Some jihadas do gain status by planning killing operations or encouraging their own brothers and sons to martyrdom.  Some are more vulnerable because of recent widowhood or rape.  Tlaib is no suicide bomber, but she embraces the Palestinian narrative – to regain their “Palestine” from Israel at all costs.  Once that’s accomplished, everything else promises to fall into place.  It is only through scapegoating Israel that she may rise to gain nobility.   

As a jihada, she joined the Democrat Socialists of America (SDA).  She hosted a pro-Hezbollah activism group not long after her installation, and began posting her desires to destroy Israel and fundraise for families of Palestinian martyrs who already receive hundreds of millions of dollars from the Palestinian Authority’s “pay to slay” program.  Openly hostile, she and the squad press for a crippling, global financial campaign against Israel, but remain mute about the Palestinians’ deadly activities (incendiary weapons, knifings, rocket attacks) against Israel and Jews worldwide.  In what other culture might one spew hatred and death to others while still expecting to be treated with dignity?                 

Life for Palestinians in Gaza, Judea and Samaria is difficult, but she fails to discern the reason.  It is the warring diktats of the Quran, the terror of armed Al-Aqsa Martyr Brigades and other PLO terrorist groups in the “Palestinian cities,” and the children who have learned nothing but terrorism. The misery is self-inflicted.

                                                                              
The truth is that Hamas – not Israel – controls these people.  This criminal gang will continue tolead the Palestinians into chaos, explains Palestinian Bassam Eid.  Hamas incites the Palestinians that Israel will destroy their mosques, make their water unsafe to drink, cause their power to go out, and block their cement shipments.  All of this is untrue.  Israel does not sabotage their water or power, and it is Hamas that steals the cement shipments to construct terror tunnels into Israel.  Hamas also steals the humanitarian aid shipments from Israel and sells them on the black market.  Eid revealed that 15% of all rockets launched by Hamas hurts the Gazans, but Israel is blamed.  He added that Palestinians residing in four buildings in Sheikh Jarrah will be evicted because the titles were sold by Hamas – another of their betrayals.  Palestinians are mistreated only by their own leadership, including their clergy.   

The Palestinians and all observant Muslims have one guiding light – their religious duty to rule the world under Islam.  Their deeds, their lies, their activities, everything they do is for Islam and no amount of appeasement, signed documents, or transactions will ever change this until their Quran is changed and accepted by all of Islam.  This is why the clerics must keep the focus on Israel, for without Israel as their whipping boy, their people would come to identify their real enemy – their worthless heritage, religion and culture, and the violence that keeps them enraged.  It is far easier to coerce the rest of the world to share in their misery — and this is precisely what Tlaib wants for America.

Sunday Talks, Hillary’s Favorite CIA Spook Admits The Taliban is al-Qaeda


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on September 12, 2021 | Sundance | 183 Comments

CTH outlines the connections, motives and intents behind the people in our government and the bastardized processes that are underway.  It is a labor of love to explain these inter-connected manipulations and provide clarity.  We do it because The Truth Has No Agenda, and once you see the strings on the marionettes,  you can never unsee them.

Before we get to this video interview [you only need to watch the first 90 seconds], it is important to remember the accurate and historic context for what is taking place.  That is how you see the dots connect.

When it comes to U.S. Foreign Policy – remember, there are fundamentally two factions within the United States government that are constantly creating havoc.  Those factions are represented in the Presidential Seal.  The arrows representing the military (Dept. of Defense) and the olive branch representing the Dept of State and Intelligence apparatus.  They work together creating the mess, but when SHTF they attempt to blame the other team.  In the Afghanistan mess you are seeing the battle between the two factions and their media conscripts.

♦ Team-1, White House, Pentagon and NatSec Council (Alphabet media and Fox News support).  ♦ Team-2, State Dept., CIA and Intelligence Community – The Intelligence Branch of Government – (CNN, CNNi, Washington Post, New York Times, Politico support).   Team-2 has been winning the blame game over Afghanistan.  Mike Morell is supporting Team Two’s effort.

Now watch the first 90 seconds of this interview with former Acting Director the CIA, Mike Morell.  Notice that he is suddenly breaking script from the official White House narrative and admitting publicly the Taliban is al-Qaeda.  WATCH:

Finally someone asks about Bin Laden’s #2 guy, Ayman al-Zawahiri.  CTH has been asking about this guy for months, since the Afghan mess blew up.  Some of you have noted there is a similarity between the Afghan outcome and the Libya/Egypt fiasco that led to the Benghazi attack.  You are correct.

When you look at the actual policy that was being executed, this is where you will find an almost identical outcome between Afghanistan and the former Libya mess.

Mike Morell was put into place by Barack Obama after the Benghazi attack took place.  In the aftermath of the attack; and with massive political issues about to happen; both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton needed to remove CIA Director David Petraeus.  Again, falling back on the construct of the Intelligence Branch of Government – you will note that Obama used former Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate Petraeus under the auspices of a relationship with a journalist named Paula Broadwell {Go Deep}.

Attorney General Eric Holder investigated CIA Director David Petraeus for allowing journalist Paula Broadwell to see and know Petraeus’ scheduling calendar.  That calendar was the “classified information” leak that led to the framework to remove Petraeus.  It was a tenuous stretch but it worked.  Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told Petraeus he needed to step down.

That was how Mike Morell was installed as the Acting CIA Director with the goal to protect Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama from the outcome of covert missile sales to Libyan rebels, that were really al-Qaeda factions in eastern Libya (Beghazi).

The Defense Department (Secretary Bob Gates) did not want to arm the Libyan rebels, because he knew those missiles could be used against our forces.  The State Department, Hillary Clinton, and the CIA, Leon Panetta, conducted the missile sales despite the Pentagon admonitions and refusal to go along with it.  That covert arming of al-Qaeda (AQAP) was “Operation Zero Footprint”.

With the “olive branch” (State Dept/CIA) conducting the operation, the “arrows” (Pentagon) were in the dark.

President Obama was all-in to arm the Muslim Brotherhood (al-Qaeda is a faction); after all, the ‘Arab Spring’ was an ideological shift in the mid-east by the U.S. with the intention to support the Muslim Brotherhood.  The Arab Spring could not have happened without Obama supporting it.  In fact, Obama initiated it with his speech in Cairo Egypt, his first foreign trip.

When it became evident to Defense Secretary Bob Gates what Clinton and Panetta were doing, with Obama’s approval, the defense secretary stepped down.   Bob Gates did not want to participate in shifting the tenuous balance in the mid-east.  President Obama then replaced Bob Gates by moving Leon Panetta from CIA Director to defense secretary.  Panetta was replaced in the CIA by David Petraeus, with Operation Zero Footprint (arming Muslim Brotherhood factions) already taking place.

Everything taking place in Benghazi, Libya, in the fall of 2012 was an outcome of attempting to get the missiles back from al-Qaeda after Gaddaffi was overthrown.  Initially they were going to shift those missiles to the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria, but they lost control over the internal al-Qaeda factions in Syria (al-Nusra, ISIS) and quickly realized this was going to end up in a massively political mess (it was an election year).   Those missiles were showing up everywhere, including Afghanistan, and the U.S. military commanders on the ground had no idea where they were coming from.

It was the urgent shift in policy (Obama, Clinton, Panetta) from supporting al-Qaeda to now cutting them off from weapons they needed, that caused the Libyan al-Qaeda elements, to turn against Ambassador Chris Stevens and attack the compound in Benghazi.

Turkish Diplomat Consul General Ali Sait Akin made one last trip to see Ambassador Chris Stevens to ask him to support the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria by continuing with the agreement already in place.   When Stevens told him the U.S. policy had shifted, Ali Sait Akin left the Benghazi compound and within minutes the attack began.

The U.S. Generals had no idea what was happening in Benghazi because the entire operation was State Department and CIA.  The Pentagon was clueless.  When the contracted CIA security reached out for help during the Benghazi attack, the U.S. military -specifically AFRICOM General Carter Ham- was caught off-guard because they never knew about the Benghazi operations in the first place.

Can you see a parallel to what happened recently in Afghanistan?

The State Department, CIA and Intelligence Community (writ large), aka “Team-Two” were in charge of Kabul in an almost identical way they were in charge of Benghazi.  When they lose control and everything starts going sideways, and they come under terrorist attacks, they shift blame to the Pentagon (Team-One).

What Mike Morell is doing in that interview is protecting the intelligence system from which he came.   This is a similar motive he had for defending Hillary Clinton in the aftermath of Benghazi.

There is a stunning amount of hubris evident in Morell now when he admits the Taliban are al-Qaeda.   Essentially the State Dept/CIA now saying of course they knew the Taliban were al-Qaeda; which is only a position they take today out of their need to shift the blame for Afghanistan to the Pentagon and White House (remember, Biden is disposable).

The U.S. State Department, CIA and Intelligence Community are the Deep State.  They form the Fourth Branch of Government.

I’ll repeat it here, only because I know it makes Team Two flinch to read the truth….  The Taliban, al-Qaeda, al-Nusra, ISIS, ISIS-k, are all under the umbrella of the Muslim Brotherhood.

The defacto head of al-Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahiri (pictured below left with Bin Laden), is being protected by the Taliban in Afghanistan.  Ayman is the brother of Mohamed al-Zawahiri (below right) who is he head of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Remember, CNN is the outlet for public relations for the U.S. State Department.  Most foreign governments view CNN as state media for the U.S. government, which is not an inaccurate way to look at them.

However, if you want to really connect the dots… watch this interview between CNN’s Nic Robertson and Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed al-Zawahiri, and notice the date of this interview.  This interview took place on September 10th, 2012.  One day before the Brotherhood launched the attack on the Benghazi compound.

Hope that helps.

The 20th anniversary of the attacks on 9-11 presents a day to reflect, remember and pay tribute to those we lost.   I am sure most of us remember exactly where we were at the moment we found out our nation was under attack by terrorists.  Our nation was forever changed by those moments on September 11th, 2001.

Perhaps we can share our memories together as we think about the 20th anniversary of this date.

Where were you on that day?  And what memories are most vivid for you?
