This week’s media circus witnessed the upstaging of the celebrity boob hack with a new ISIS “beheading” video of “journalist” Steven Sotloff. If you follow me on FB or Twitter, you know I immediately called the Foley video as a fake, not because I have some secret inside source or because of any advanced technical analysis of digital imagery, but because the videos are cartoonishly fake. Unlike the comical North Korean “space program” photos, which apparently no one but JaysAnalysis has questioned, this time around, people are catching on, as both ISIS videos have begun to be seriously questioned by major media and experts. Readers will recall that I have been on the forefront of calling out fake, staged news for several years now, with little appreciation. Sadly, rather than utilizing their own minds and critical thinking, the public will only consider questioning a major story’s validity when “experts” (whoever they are) tell them it is orthodox to do so.
Since the first Foley video has emerged, it has come to light that Foley the “journalist” was originally embedded as an intelligence officer as a USAID worker, a classic, obvious intelligence cover, as the Weekly Standard reported. TheWashington Post reported in 2010 on this as follows:
“The most common, official CIA cover, is provided by the State Department, which permits operatives to carry out diplomatic duties in an American embassy by day and their real jobs by night: trying to get local officials and other foreign nationals to turn coat and secretly work for the USAID) provided cover for CIA operatives so widely that the two became almost synonymous.U.S. government agencies provide cover as well. In South Vietnam, the U.S. Agency for International Development (
In recent decades the agency has often said it was deploying more “NOCs,” or officers under non-official cover. U.S. multinational companies — banks, oil companies, airlines, construction firms — are generally happy to help the CIA, on patriotic grounds, with legitimate-looking jobs for its operatives.”
Global Research explains of this front, which uses the classical phony promotion of “democracy”:
“They were even involved in Russia during the neoliberal Yeltsin disaster. USAID funded Chubais through public-private organizations and a Harvard program that was so patently corrupt, Harvard and its program directors including economist Andrei Shleifer were sued by the US Department of Justice for “conspiring to defraud” the US government (not to mention Russians). USAID also paid public relations giant Burson-Marsteller to sell the disastrous voucher program to the Russian public, in a mass media advertising blitz that promoted Chubais’ political party on the eve of parliamentary elections. It was this USAID funded privatization, and the USAID-backed Russia “democrats,” which soured Russians on market capitalism and democracy (renamed “dermokratsia” or “shitocracy” in Russian). Pando Daily
This USAID effort in Ukraine is nothing new. They’ve been at this trick for years and years going back to a time when President Peace Prize was a toddler at his mother’s side in Indonesia working for another IMF/World Bank creation; one of the most brutal dictators in human history, Suharto (an argument can be made also for our “darling dictator” of Rwanda, Paul Kagame).”
I guess the Washington Post is now a conspiracy rag, since this is something alt media sites like JaysAnalysis have been saying – and it’s no different from the staged Malaysian plane “attack” in Ukraine or Bowe Bergdahl or Kony or any other ridiculous mass news fable. It’s not an arrangement that pleases legitimate State Department diplomats, who complain that they’re put at risk by the practice. The video itself demonstrated all the hallmarks of intelligence scripting: cheesy lines, low production value, over the top antics and no actual killing! The key indicator is that no one is actually killed in the video, all that is shown is a picture of some body or dummy. Furthermore, all such videos do is justify Washington’s invasion force! They accomplish nothing but the goals of the present administration – they do nothing to further some existential caliphate threat to Amerika (setting aside for a moment that the “caliphate” is Western-funded). The second video was also linked to the Western intelligence-connected agency SITE, which appreared to have the video before ISIS.
Recall also that the Washington Post discussed the staging of Bin Laden videos:
“The agency actually did make a video purporting to show Osama bin Laden and his cronies sitting around a campfire swigging bottles of liquor and savoring their conquests with boys, one of the former CIA officers recalled, chuckling at the memory,” the article states. “The actors were drawn from ‘some of us darker-skinned employees.’”
In its never-ending propaganda spew, Washington and its intelligence agencies (read “journalists”) foist endless staged scenarios on the ignorant public with tireless energy. Once your eyes are opened, it is genuinely an amazing sight to see – how does anyone continually fall for this? The videos and the operations aren’t even well made, which, though hard to believe at first, is also done on purpose. It is a fundamental doctrine of psychological warfare that the propaganda must necessarily be dumbed-down and goofy.
It is also important to remember the context for this whole Al Qaeda fiasco, which is the Great Game of the last hundred years of British intelligence espionage, where radical Jihadis were created under the tutelage of Lawrence of Arabia and the lords of London. The Empire carved up the Middle East, creating many of its modern states, such as Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, etc. The goal of all of London’s chess game was, and still is, the shadow control of all nations through its banks and operatives, and the crippling and containment of Russia. The Soviet engineering was a London/Wall Street export, as was the dialectical opposite, Al Qaeda in 1979, to subvert Russia from within and destabilize from without. This is the larger context for all the geo-political machinations we see at work today, all the way up to the ISIS crisis.And now, as the attempted attack on Syria was foiled, Washington and London seek to attack again, under the guise of the very group they funded.
The silly factor actually creates the cognitive dissonance effect in the viewing audience, most of whom never saw the actual “beheading” videos, which looked more like something from the Onion than anything a real international terrorist organization would produce. Indeed, the whole ISIS/IS entity has, as Patrick Henningsen wisely quipped, a “WWF character to it.” ISIS is also now involved in the now-expired Ferguson, MO fiasco, as 21stCenturyWire exposed. As the mass media blends its comic book narratives together into mixed Twilight Zone scripts, the next headline we can expect should enlighten informed citizens to the deepest, darkest truth: the Malaysian Plane was actually carrying the hacked Hollywood boob photos from Kony’s private collection to sex-starved ISIS operatives in Baghdad, where al-Baghdadi and his MI6 handlers can rate the titties. Would this story be any more unbelievable than the “normal” fake news? I don’t think so.
