WAYNE MADSEN: Orlando Shooter's Father Has Definite CIA Links - Link Between Orlando And Boston Is Spelled C-I-A

CIA now and has been operating unchecked in CONUS 

By Wayne Madsen

There is one major commonality between the jihadist terrorist attacks on a gay nightclub in Orlando on June 13 and on the Boston Marathon in 2013 and that is the Central Intelligence Agency. 

Ever since the ill-conceived CIA-led war against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan in the 1980s and the agency's incubation of the most violent extremes of Islam, the United States and other countries have faced constant "blowback" from U.S. support for jihadist terrorists. The older Boston Marathon bomber brother -- Tamerlan Tsarnaev -- and the Orlando club shooter Omar Mateen (aka Seddique Mateen) were investigated by the FBI on more than a single occasion. 

The uncle of Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Ruslan Tsarni (aka Tsarnaev) had been linked to the CIA. Tsarni was married to the daughter of Graham Fuller, one of the chief CIA architects of the radicalization of Muslims to act as radical foot soldiers for the United States, whether in Afghanistan against the Soviets or in the Caucasus against Russia. Mir Seddique, aka Mir Seddique Mateen, the father of Omar Mateen, is a self-styled leader of a government-in-exile of Afghanistan that is based in Port St. Lucie, Florida. 

Mir Seddique

The father's operation, using a Florida not-for-profit company called "The Durand Jirga, Inc." mirrors traditional CIA fronts in southern Florida existing for decades to overthrow governments from Cuba and Nicaragua to Venezuela and the Dominican Republic. Mir Seddique hosted a television program called the "Durand Jirga Show." The show is broadcast on the Afghan satellite network "Payam-e-Afghan," which is headquartered in Los Angeles and broadcasts in Pashto and Persian. Payam-e-Afghan's Facebook page indicates a link between the network and the Fethulleh Gulen organization's Rumi Awards. Gulen, a Turkish industrialist who lives in Pennsylvania and is an opponent of Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has been linked to the CIA.

Durand is a reference to the Durand Line, established by Sir Mortimer Durand, the foreign secretary of the British colonial government of India who drew the border between British India and Afghanistan. The Durand Line continues as the Pakistani-Afghan border where Pakistani-Afghan military clashes broke out simultaneous to Mateen's assault on the Orlando nightclub.

The Durand Jirga Show apparently appeals for donations, including foreign donations from the SWIFT network, via an account at Wells Fargo Bank

The Tsarnaev brothers and Omar Mateen were followers of the Denver-born Anwar al-Awlaki, the Department of Defense's post-9/11 liaison to the Sunni Islamic community who even dined at the Pentagon. Al-Awlaki was killed in a CIA drone strike in Yemen in 2011 but his association with the Pentagon and U.S. intelligence agents was already well-established. Mir Seddique, the Dari-speaking would-be leader of Afghanistan, favors the Afghan Taliban and is opposed to past Afghan president Hamid Karzai and current president Ashraf Ghani and has called for their arrest by the Afghan National Army. Seddique's New York-born son, Omar, was 29 and it would appear that the Seddiques emigrated to the United States sometime around 1986, during the CIA's Afghan war against the Soviets and during a time that President Ronald Reagan considered the radical mujaheddin the "George Washingtons" of Afghanistan. The Seddiques moved from New York to Florida when Omar was a young boy.

Mateen was a security officer for G4S, a global security firm that has major security contracts for U.S. government agencies. G4S Americas is headquartered in Jupiter, Florida. G4S was formerly known as Wackenhut. G4S provides security for a number of U.S. nuclear power plants.

As with Tamerlan Tsarnaev, Omar Mateen's overseas travels were known to the FBI and CIA. Mateen traveled to Saudi Arabia in 2011 and 2012. Tsarnaev's travels to the restive Caucasus region of Russia were tipped off to the FBI by Russian law enforcement. 

Tamerlan traveled on passports issued by Russia, Kyrgyzstan, and the Republic of Georgia. The FBI had Mateen and Tsarnaev under initial investigations but later determined that neither posed a terrorist threat. The FBI has often backs down on investigating foreign terrorists when the CIA intercedes. There is evidence that this occurred with the FBI in the cases of Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Mateen. 

The FBI investigated a link between Mateen and Palestinian-American Moner Mohammad Abu-Salha who carried out a suicide bombing on behalf of Al Qaeda's Al Nusra Front ally in May 2014. Mateen and Salha attended the same mosque in Fort Pierce, Florida. The CIA's pro-Wahhabist director John Brennan has called Al Qaeda in Syria America's "ally" against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). Brennan, while he was deputy national security adviser, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton encouraged foreign mercenaries, including Americans, to join the ranks of Syrian jihadists to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al Assad. 

Mateen stated that he supported both Al Qaeda and ISIL (or Daesh as it is called in Arabic). Mateen's declaration puts to rest the argument of Brennan and his predecessor General David Petraeus that there is a difference between Syrian Al Qaeda, ISIL, and the Al Nusra Front. The FBI interviewed Mateen for his ties to the Nusra Front, which has received arms and training from the CIA and Israel.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev became a "radicalized" Muslim while participating in a covert CIA program, run through the Republic of Georgia, to destabilize Russia's North Caucasus region. 

Russia's Izvestia is reporting that Tsarnaev attended training seminars in Tbilisi, Georgia run by the Caucasus Fund of Georgia, a group affiliated with the neo-conservative think tank, the Jamestown Foundation, between January and July 2012. Jamestown was founded by CIA director William Casey in the 1980s.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev

FSB decided to contact the FBI about Tsarnaev's ties to terrorists in 2011. The first Russian request to the FBI came via the FBI's Legal Attache's office at the U.S. embassy in Moscow in March 2011. It took the FBI until June 2011 to conclude that Tamerlan posed no terrorist threat but it did add his name to the Treasury Enforcement Communications System, or TECS, which monitors financial information such as bank accounts held abroad and wire transfers. In September 2011, Russian authorities, once again, alerted the U.S. of their suspicions about Tamerlan. The second alert went to the CIA.

At some point in time after the first Russian alert and either before or after the second, the CIA entered Tamerlan's name into the Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment list (TIDE), a database with more than 750,000 entries that is maintained by the National Counterterrorism Center in McLean, Virginia.

On May 22, 2013, Tamerlan's friend Ibragim Todashev, was shot to death in his Orlando apartment by FBI agent Aaron McFarlane. Todashev was being questioned by McFarlane and two Massachusetts State Troopers for Tamerlan's role in a triple murder in Massachusetts. Todashev, a Chechen, received political asylum in the United States in 2008 and became a permanent resident in March 2013. While Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Omar Mateen were given clean bills of health by the FBI, Todashev, who was reported by Russian intelligence to be free of any terrorism links, was executed by the FBI. What intelligence might have Todashev possessed about jihadist terror networks in Orlando? Could that intelligence have prevented the massacre three years later at the Orlando Pulse nightclub?

As with Tamerlan, the FBI had Mateen's name on a terrorist watch list in 2014. However, as is often the case when the FBI discovers a CIA-operated terrorist network, it is told to back off. The Tsarnaevs and Mateen show that the actual control organization for "Terrorism International" is the Central Intelligence Agency.

Brennan Claims CIA Officers Were Held Accountable For Torture, But Won’t Publicly Divulge How

CIA murderers will only be held accountable when a through Justice Department investigation is conducted and the results made public

By Sam Sacks

CIA Director John Brennan told lawmakers on Thursday that people at the CIA have indeed been held accountable for the agency’s post-9/11 torture program.

Torture at Abu Ghraib 
Brennan refused, however, to get into the details publicly, saying the matter is classified. He made the claims during a public hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

“Is it still the case that no one has been held accountable for the systemic failures that the agency has acknowledged?” Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) asked the CIA chief during the proceedings. 

Wyden referenced the agency’s response to the exhaustive Senate torture report released at the end of 2014. In it, the agency admitted to “significant shortcomings” in “handling of accountability.”

Brennan responded, claiming that over the last several years, the agency “took actions” against those involved the program’s illicit activities.

Spawn of Satan: CIA Director John Brennan 
“There was individual accountability taken as well as accountability for some of those management and systemic failures,” he added. 

Brennan then said he couldn’t proffer any more information unless the committee moved into a classified session.

“If that’s the case, I certainly think that’s constructive,” Wyden responded somewhat skeptically. “I will await your classified response so that we have more details on that.”

The CIA’s enhanced interrogation program operated in clear violation of not just US prohibitions against torture, but also international treaty obligations. And, according to the latter, the Obama administration is complicit in crimes related to torture for failing to hold any perpetrators accountable.

As the Center for Constitutional Rights has noted: “Article 4 of the [United Nation’s] Convention Against Torture requires the new Obama administration convene a criminal investigation into the illegal acts and those responsible for them.”

Although the Senate Intelligence Committee investigated the CIA’s crimes in a 6,000-page report, the Justice Department has shied away from any probes or prosecutions. Before assuming office in 2009, President Obama signaled that he had little interest in revisiting the crimes of the Bush administration.

He told ABC News that he holds “a belief that we need to look forward as opposed to looking backwards.”

Bush/Obama legacy: Shit-smeared Iraqi at Abu Grahib

Obama added that “at the CIA, you’ve got extraordinarily talented people who are working very hard to keep Americans safe. I don’t want them to suddenly feel like they’ve got to spend all their time looking over their shoulders and lawyering.”

The Obama administration has aggressively prosecuted the one individual involved in the CIA torture program: a man who blew the whistle on it.

Analyst John Kiriakou revealed to a journalist in 2007 that the agency had repeatedly waterboarded accused al-Qaeda operative Abu Zubaydah. He was subsequently charged with improperly disclosing classified information and violating the Espionage Act. Kiriakou ended up serving nearly two years in prison.

NATO Defense Chiefs Okay Boosting Ground Forces Presence Near Russia’s Borders

NATO Nazis double-down on provoking Russia at the behest of Obama and his Pentagon/DOD madmen who are determined to play with their nuclear toys  

By Peter Korzun

On June 14, NATO's defense ministers formally approved the deployment plan of four multinational battalions to Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland. Each country will be reinforced by a battalion. The battalions will be under the orders of NATO commanders, and formally deployed on a rotational basis rather than being based permanently in the host countries, but coverage will be continuous and the presence will be maintained permanently.

Great Britain, Germany and the United States advanced plans on June 14 to spearhead a new NATO force on Russia’s border from next year. The three NATO’s biggest military powers said they would each command a combat battalion across the eastern flank. The new force is expected to total about 4,000 soldiers, with contributions from other allies. Germany is likely to deploy to Lithuania, the United States to Poland and Britain to Estonia, on a six-to-nine month rotating basis. Canada is expected to command a fourth battalion in Latvia. 

Other NATO nations will eventually take command responsibilities. France is also sending a company of about 250 troops.

Russian crosshairs
The battalions are part of a wider NATO deployment to be approved at the Warsaw summit on July 8-9, which will involve troops on rotation, warehoused equipment and a highly mobile force backed by NATO’s 40,000-strong rapid response force.

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said at the June 14 meeting that the alliance is considering a Romanian offer to command a multinational brigade which could coordinate alliance training and possibly play a deterrent role. 

Romania has offered to provide the headquarters for the brigade and is expected to lead the formation.

In addition, the United States will increase its military presence in Eastern Europe by deploying an armored brigade. According to the fiscal year 2017 European Reassurance Initiative budget proposal, the US military spending in Europe will be more than $3.4 billion – far more than the $786 million in the current budget. The Army will repair and upgrade its already pre-positioned arms and place them at sites in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany. Those stocks will be sufficient for another armored brigade to fall in on. The rotating brigade will bring its own equipment.

The move will add hundreds of the Army’s most advanced weapons systems to beef up the US European Command’s combat capability. It will also free up an entire brigade’s worth of weapons currently being used by US forces training on the continent to enable more American troops to be rushed in on short notice. The rotation period will be limited to nine months. An armored brigade combat team comprises about 4,200 troops and includes approximately 250 tanks, Bradley Fighting Vehicles and Paladin self-propelled howitzers, plus 1,750 wheeled vehicles. The proposed budget increase includes a $1.8bn outlay on 45,000 GPS-guided smart bombs and laser-guided rockets to boost the forces precision strike capability.

All these plans are in violation of the Russia-NATO Founding Act (1997), which states that "in the current and foreseeable security environment," it would not seek "additional permanent stationing of substantial ground combat forces" in the nations closer to Russia. The arguments of NATO officials saying the forces will deploy on temporary basis do not hold water. 

The violation is obvious. Actually, stationing forces abroad under the pretext of holding exercises cannot be done on a non-rotational basis anyway, because each unit has an operational cycle that envisions going through exercises. The announced plans are nothing else but a permanent military presence of substantial forces. With the Founding Act invalid, the Russia-NATO military relationship will be left without a legal basis to go upon. The document has played a very important role in the relationship for 19 years.

It’s not about ground forces only. Poland and the Baltic States are attempting to build a regional anti-aircraft missile shield. "We are in discussions now with the Estonians, the Latvians, and the Poles over how we can create some kind of regional air defense system," Lithuanian Defense Minister Juozas Olekas told the Financial Times on June 10.

American Patriot missiles are being considered as the four countries evaluate procurement possibilities.

In addition to a proposed anti-aircraft missile shield, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania are also lobbying NATO for an air mission requiring the deployment of dozens of warplanes, said Lithuania’s defense chief, Lieutenant General Vytautas Zukas.

Meanwhile, Romania has announced its desire to station a permanent alliance fleet –including ships from Ukraine and Georgia – in the Black Sea to counter Russia.

Moscow has accused NATO of moving more and more military forces close to its borders, and vowed to do what it takes to protect Russia’s national security and interests. It will have to deploy additional military aircraft and Iskander missile systems closer to the border. In response to NATO’s plans, Moscow has announced the decision to deploy two new divisions in the west and one in the south to counterbalance NATO’s increased military presence near Russian borders.

Many Europeans oppose these NATO’s plans. For instance, some 56 percent of Germans surveyed recently do not consider Russia as a threat to their country, with 49 percent of respondents opposing the idea of permanent deployment of NATO forces in Poland or the Baltic states.

The US decision to increase military presence in Europe comes along with the rise of Donald Trump, who has disparaged the NATO alliance as a drain on US resources.

His stance has a lot of supporters in the US.

The negative development of events is seen as a provocation by Moscow to reduce any chances of a dialogue within the framework of Russia-NATO Council. NATO’s plans to send four armed battalions to the Baltic States and Poland will greatly reduce European security and provoke an arms race with unpredictable results. An accident or provocation could lead to a dangerous escalation in hostilities. The stand-off will trigger an arms race.

It’s not an accident that the very same day the NATO defense ministers meeting took place, President Vladimir Putin ordered a snap inspection of the Russian armed forces to assess combat and mobilization readiness. The inspection (June 14-22) is carried out at a number of weapons and hardware storage facilities, as well as individual military control agencies. Despite the fact that the 2011 OSCE Vienna Document’s provisions did not apply to such inspections, Russia voluntarily notified all the signatories about the move. This is the first reaction to NATO’s hostile activities.
