“FOREIGN POLICY BY FORCE”
by Michael Gaddy, ©2015
Taken from an interview of Foreign Policy advisor to Jimmy Carter, Zbigniew Brzezinski in 1998:
“Q: And neither do you regret having supported the Islamic fundamentalism, having given arms and advice to future terrorists?
Brzezinski: What is most important to the history of the world? The Taliban or the collapse of the Soviet empire? Some stirred-up Moslems or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the cold war?
Q: Some stirred-up Moslems? But it has been said and repeated Islamic fundamentalism represents a world menace today.
Brzezinski: Nonsense! It is said that the West had a global policy in regard to Islam. That is stupid. There isn’t a global Islam. Look at Islam in a rational manner and without demagoguery or emotion. It is the leading religion of the world with 1.5 billion followers. But what is there in common among Saudi Arabian fundamentalism, moderate Morocco, Pakistan militarism, Egyptian pro-Western or Central Asian secularism? Nothing more than what unites the Christian countries.”
Brzezinski was responding to questions about the 500 million dollar, taxpayer funded donation to the Muslim Jihadist movement back in 1978, spearheaded by he and the, at the time Assistant Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Robert Gates. Brzezinski admitted to lying to the American Public about the timing of this loan. According to Brzezinski, the monies had been given to the Muslim Jihadists in July of 1978, several months before the Soviets invaded Afghanistan even though it was originally declared the money was provided to them after the invasion.
Brezezinski also admitted the money provided to the jihadists was done explicitly to lure the Soviets into the invasion. When the Soviets proclaimed they invaded to counter a secret involvement of the United States in the affairs of Afghanistan, our government disavowed any knowledge of what the Russians were claiming.
The mention of the “nonsense” of “some stirred-up Moslems” and the liberation of Europe appears to be quite the opposite of what one can witness daily on any news channel in the world. Brzezinski goes on to state there is nothing to unite the various sects of Moslems throughout the Middle East. It would appear the hate of the military interventionism exhibited over the past few decades by this country has been the motivation to unite enough of them to create a huge problem for the rest of the world. Would it surprise anyone to learn that Brzezinski has often been referred to as “Obama’s foreign policy brain?”
Somehow, Obama gets all of the credit for our problems with the Moslem peoples, but history, that fickle mistress, proves our government was involved in this fiasco long before Obama was ever heard of.
With the passing of the National Security Act of 1947, this country saw a dramatic change in how foreign policy and subsequent military interventionism (regime change) to support that foreign policy would be enacted. The act created the CIA which had its roots in the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) created during WWII which was greatly influenced by the myriad of Soviet agents operating throughout the administration of FDR. (Source: Stalin’s Secret Agents: The Subversion of Roosevelt’s Government by M. Stanton Evans) There is credible evidence the OSS, acting in concert with the Russian NKVD, were responsible for the death of General George S. Patton. (Source: Target Patton: The Plot to assassinate General George S. Patton by Robert Wilcox)
Our CIA, partner in the National Security apparatus, would have its founding based on Soviet influence (NKVD) and immediately after WWII heavily influenced by Nazis (SS), facilitated by Operation Paperclip. The background of longtime CIA operative and eventual director, Richard Helms and his connections with Hitler and his government create an interesting study.
Another interesting subject directly related to the National Security Act which deserves considerable research was the suspicious death of the very first Secretary of Defense, James Forrestal. Forrestal was caught between a rock (National Defense Apparatus) and a hard place. (President Truman who was trying to downsize the defense budget dramatically) Supposedly, Forrestal was asked to resign by Truman and was eventually, suffering from depression, sequestered on the 16th floor of Walter Reed hospital where he reportedly, fell to his death in May of 1949. The official government report surrounding the death of Forrestal (Wilcutt’s report) was released by the government in 2004. I’m sure it took them 55 years to get all the facts straight.
The CIA, especially under the leadership of William Casey, began to meddle into the affairs of other countries very early in its history. Casey would totally ignore the constraints of the Constitution as he went about the business of influencing foreign policy. One serious debacle was when Casey, attempting to avenge the capture, torture and eventual death of William Buckley, CIA Station Chief in Beirut, had a truck bomb detonated in a crowded section of Beirut hoping to take out the reported leader of Hezbollah (Sayeed Fadlallah), a cleric thought to be responsible for Buckley’s abduction. As it turned out, the intelligence on the cleric as provided by Mossad, was incorrect and the cleric had had no hand in the abduction of Buckley. Regardless, the truck bomb was detonated killing 80 and wounding over 200. Of course the CIA disavowed any knowledge of the operation.
In 1978, we provided the Moslem jihadists with 500 million dollars in operational funds. Then through the CIA and Special Operations military assets, we taught them state-of-the-art sabotage techniques to be used against the Russian Army well into the early 80s. These techniques consisted of what was referred to as the “poor man’s air force”—the car/truck/camel bombs and how to take down helicopters with RPGs. We taught them well and furnished them with money and weapons to oppose a superior military occupying force which happened to be Russia in Afghanistan. How surprised can we be that when we became the militarily superior occupier in Beirut, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and soon to be Syria, that the tactics and resources that we provided would/will be used against us? Could that training and money be involved in the bombing of the Marine Corps Barracks in Beirut in October of 1983? What about the downing of the Blackhawk helicopters in Mogadishu in 1993? Did the tactics, money, equipment and training our secret government provided to Moslem jihadists in the late 70s and early 80s lead to the deaths of American Soldiers and Marines? Would we be told if it did?
The question then arises: how does the “shadow government” continue to financially support all of their covert activities involving foreign policy by force? Is it possible the “shadow government” created their own bank? A thorough examination of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) would be required to answer that question. Is it possible that a career bureaucrat who protected this criminal financial enterprise would be rewarded with the directorship at the Federal Bureau of Investigation? More on this subject later.
How many criminal activities will have the fingerprints of the shadow government all over them? We could start with the overthrow of the duly elected government in Iran back in 1953. How has that worked out so far? What about placing Saddam Hussein in power in Iraq in 1979? How about the Iran/Contra affair? How about Manuel Noriega in Panama? What about the assassination of JFK, RFK and MLK? How about the Oklahoma City bombing and the mysterious death of OKC Police officer Terrence Yeakey? You might want to check out a ruling by a federal judge in Utah (Waddoups) back in 2010 that ordered requested CIA documents about the OKC bombing remain classified. The CIA claimed release of the documents would compromise “National Security.” Considering the criminal activities member agencies of the National Security complex in this country have been involved in since 1947, could it be the need to protect “national security” is really the need to prevent the release of incriminating evidence which would condemn the criminal activities of this shadow government?
Did members of this shadow government move to eliminate totally the constitutional form of government we supposedly are governed by, some 14 years ago? Stay tuned.
