Agent who lied about WMD in Iraq faces jail sentence

Agent who lied about WMD in Iraq faces jail sentence

Guardian

Curveball, aka Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi

A German politician has warned that the CIA informant Curveball could go to jail after telling the Guardian that he lied about Saddam Hussein’s bioweapons capability in order to “liberate” Iraq.

Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi, who was given the name Curveball by his US and German handlers, told the German secret service that Iraq had a secret biological weapons programme.

The 43-year-old defector’s evidence was then passed to the CIA and became the primary source used by the US to justify invading Iraq.

Politicians in Iraq called for Curveball’s permanent exile following his admission and poured scorn on his claim to want to return to his motherland and build a political party. “He is a liar, he will not serve his country,” said one Iraqi MP.

In his adopted home of Germany, MPs are demanding to know why the German secret service paid Curveball £2,500 a month for at least five years after they knew he had lied.

Hans-Christian Ströbele, a Green MP, said Janabi had arguably violated a German law which makes warmongering illegal. He added that Gerhard Schröder, German chancellor around the time of the second Iraq war, should also reveal what he knew about the quality of evidence Curveball gave to Germany’s secret service, the BND.

Under German constitutional law, it is a criminal offence to do anything “with the intent to disturb the peaceful relations between nations, especially anything that leads to an aggressive war”, said Ströbele. The maximum penalty is life imprisonment, he said, adding that he did not expect it would ever come to that.

The MP said he would table a question to the Bundestag demanding to know whether the German secret service knew that Curveball was lying before the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003. Schröder famously refused to join the “coalition of the willing” who took part in the second Iraq war.

Curveball told the Guardian he was pleased to have finally told the truth but that he was scared of the consequences. He said he had given the Guardian’s phone number to his wife and brother in Sweden “just in case something happens to me”.

In the US, questions are being asked of the CIA’s handling of Curveball and specifically why the then head of the intelligence agency, George Tenet, did not pass on German warnings about Curveball’s reliability.

Lawrence Wilkerson, chief of staff to the US secretary of state Colin Powell in the build-up to the invasion, said Curveball’s lies raised questions about how the CIA had briefed Powell ahead of his crucial speech to the UN security council, where he presented the case for war.

Tyler Drumheller, head of the CIA’s Europe division in the run-up to the 2003 invasion, said he welcomed Curveball’s confession because he had always warned Tenet that Curveball may have been a fabricator. But the harshest criticism came from Iraq.

Jamal al-Battikh, the country’s minister for tribes’ affairs, said: “Honestly, this man led Iraq to a catastrophe and a disaster. Iraqis paid a heavy price for his lies – the invasion of 2003 destroyed Iraqi basic infrastructure and after eight years we cannot fix electricity. Plus thousands of Iraqis have died. This man is not welcome back. In fact, Iraqis should complain against him and sue him for his lies.”

Others poured scorn on Curveball’s plan to return to Iraq and enter politics.

Intefadh Qanber, spokesman for the Iraqi National Congress (INC), led by Ahmed Chalabi, said: “He is a liar, he will not serve his country. He fabricated the story about WMD and that story gave the USA a suitable pretext to lead the 2003 invasion, which hurt Iraq. For most Iraqis, it was obvious that Saddam was a dictator, but they wanted to see him ousted on the basis of his crimes against human rights, not a fabricated story about weapons of mass destruction.”

In the US, a pressure group representing veterans of the Iraq war demanded the justice department open an investigation into the INC’s relationship to Curveball.

Chalabi, who was very close to the former US vice-president Dick Cheney in the decade leading up to the 2003 invasion, has often been accused of being the man behind Curveball. It has long been known that Chalabi provided the CIA with three other sources who lied about Saddam’s WMD capability. But when asked by the Guardian, Janabi and Chalabi denied knowing each other.

Egypt Revolution Staged for U.S. Coup on Iran

Egypt Revolution Staged for U.S. Coup on Iran

NoWorldSystem.com
February 11, 2011

It’s becoming more evident that the Revolution in Egypt was a linchpin for another U.S. coup against Iran.

Once again we see the U.S. meddling in the affairs of governments; in a released Wikileaks cable reveals the State Department is backing revolutions in Egypt.

The Wikileaks cable also reveals “how the State Department helped an Egyptian pro-democracy activist attend a “Youth Movements Summit’ in New York and how the unnamed activist presented an ‘unwritten plan’ for democratic transition in 2011.’”

Wikileaks cables also indicated that the U.S. applied pressure to have three dissidents associated with the pro-democracy group to be released from prison.

The Egyptian revolution is a joke, Mubarak will just be replaced by the CIA’s torture chief Omar Suleiman, no change there. This so-called revolution was only the first stage, the second stage is orchestrating another coup in Iran including the rest of the Islamic world.

For decades the CIA has been propping up fake “color revolutions” and terrorism to replace governments with their own un-elected puppets. In 2009, during the ‘green revolution’ in Iran the CIA was caught backing the Mujahideen Khaliq Organization, terrorists who were trained in Iraq to create post-election mayhem in Iran. The captured terrorists admitted that they were given direct orders by the MKO command-post in Britain.

In 2008, Former Pakistan General Mirza Aslam Beig reported that the U.S. was providing training facilities to the Jundullah terrorist organization in eastern areas of Iran to create unrest and to effect the ties between Iran and Pakistan.

With all the hype of the new ‘Egyptian revolution’ the propaganda against Iran is increasing:

“The world is changing,”

“You have a young, vibrant generation within the Middle East that is looking for greater opportunity. …. My hope and expectation is that we are going to continue to see the people of Iran have the courage to be able to express their yearning for greater freedom and a more representative government,” Obama said.

The U.S. leaders and the media have positioned themselves as being on the side of the Egyptian protesters, we need to ask ourselves “why is the U.S. government supporting a revolution against their own puppet dictator Mubarak, the same guy who received billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars?” The answer is simple, create a new ‘color revolution’ without replacing the Egyptian dictatorship to stimulate Anglo-American New World Order in the Middle East.

Here’s more proof the U.S. meddling in Iran, trying to start up another ‘green revolution’ in Iran:

    US sends Twitter messages to Iranians

    “On the Twitter account, USAdarFarsi, the State Department said it “recognizes historic role of social media among Iranians We want to join in your conversations.

    In another Tweet, the State Department said: “Iran has shown that the activities it praised Egyptians for it sees as illegal, illegitimate for its own people.”

    In a third Tweet, it said “US calls on Iran to allow people to enjoy same universal rights to peacefully assemble, demonstrate as in Cairo.”

Since 1941 U.S. and Britain have been trying to exploit Iran but have always failed to prop up a U.S.-backed dictator in the country.

In 1941 U.S. and Britain installed the Shah of Iran, Mohammed Reza Pahlavi. It didn’t take long for the Iranian people to realize that the Shah was nothing more than a puppet of the U.S. and British empire and started a revolution. People protested and rioted, but the Shah ordered Martial Law and arrested political leaders and clerics who opposed his regime. In 1951 Mossadeq lead the people of Iran for a few years, but the CIA and British Intelligence (MI6) decided to launch Operation AJAX, which was a plan to create terrorist attacks to blame it on Mossadeq.

Operation AJAX was later revealed in the late 1990′s when the CIA declassified large sections of Operation AJAX to the American public.:

    “TPAJAX. The plan comprised propaganda, provocations, demonstrations, and bribery, and employed agents of influence, “false flag” operatives, dissident military leaders, and paid protesters.”

With the help of the CIA and the MI6, Mossadeq was removed and the Shah returned to rule for the next 25 years. During that time the American/British oil companies took over half of Iran’s oil production. The Shah started to order deaths on demonstrators, torture and execution was used on all who opposed his regime. Protesters were met by Iranian secret police called the SAVAK, who were just as brutal as the secret police of Nazi Germany.

After many years under Shah oppression, the people of Iran were successful in overthrowing the U.S.-Backed Shah of Iran. That is when the Mullah Regime took over, creating the Islamic Republic which is currently Ahmadinejad and Ayatollah Khomeini.

No matter which way it goes for Iran, the people are nothing but pawns for the Anglo or Islamic dictatorship. Time will decide what will happen, but either way it’s going to be a bloodbath.

94% of Senate Bills Passed in Secret

94% of Senate Bills Passed in Secret

CRS Report
July 28, 2008

855 bills have passed the Senate with no debate, no amendments, no votes

Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senators Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina) and Tom Coburn (R-Oklahoma) released a report by the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service (CRS) finding that 94 percent of bills the Senate has passed in the 110th Congress have been without a vote, debate or a single amendment. The 855 bills that have been secretly passed spend more than $9 billion, though a final total is not available because many of the bills were rushed through before a cost analysis could be performed.

Senator DeMint: “It would surprise many Americans to learn that the ‘World’s Greatest Deliberative Body’ passes the overwhelming majority of legislation without any debate at all. Democrats think they are entitled to pass bills without debate or votes, and they’ve tried to ram them through right before recess to pressure us to give up. But, Senators shouldn’t fear debate on these important bills. It’s in the best traditions of our republic to demand the Senate actually do its job and have a public debate on bills that expand government and increase the burden on taxpayers. Senator Reid can complain all he wants, but Republicans represent millions of Americans whose voices are being silenced by Democrat strong-arm tactics.”

Dr. Coburn: “The U.S. Senate has a nine percent approval rating because the American people believe that much of our work is done in secret with no debate, no transparency and no accountability. This report shows that the reality is worse than the public’s fears. Instead of encouraging open debate, I’m disappointed that Majority Leader Reid often chooses secrecy or demagoguery. For instance, he has depicted my effort to reduce the number of bills that pass the Senate in secret by ten percent as ‘unprecedented obstruction.’ What is unprecedented and ahistorical, however, is the Majority Leader’s view that Senators should have a king-like right to pass massive spending bills in secret with no debate, no amendments and no recorded vote.”
