17 years after 9/11, Al-Qaeda Rebranded By U.S. Government & Fake News Media As "Besieged Rebels"

CNN/NYT/MSM fake news frauds, hacks and CIA shills will be indicted by the ICC for WAR CRIMES

Seventeen years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the US government and media outlets have decided that Al-Qaeda is now a rebel group worthy of our sympathy. The cynical narrative change is par for the course, experts told RT.


As somber newspaper headlines mark the anniversary of the devastating attacks, some commentators have pointed out that the terrorist group accused of murdering 3,000 Americans seventeen years ago is now occupying northeastern Syria – with the US threatening to take military action if the "rebels" are evicted from the region by the Syrian army and its allies. The United States has spent an estimated $1.5 trillion on its Global War Against Terrorism, launched in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks.


But the United States now seems to find itself providing diplomatic cover – not to mention excellent press – to the terrorists that it once vowed to eradicate.

The majority of Syria's Idlib province is controlled by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), a State Department-designated terrorist group that is regarded as indistinguishable from Al-Qaeda. 




But the US has signaled that it will respond militarily to any efforts by Damascus to evict the internationally-recognized terrorist group from its last stronghold in Syria, with the New York Times even fawningover the jihadists as "a de facto governmental authority, facilitating trade across the long border with Turkey and organizing aid deliveries." What happened?

Never Forget?

Even as social media fills up with maudlin GIFs vowing to "Never Forget" the September 11 attacks, one of the reasons that Al-Qaeda has been able to remain in Idlib is because Americans have actually "forgotten," analysts say.




"A lot of time has passed since 9/11. They got Osama bin Laden and people have moved on, and they have other issues that they're focusing on," former Pentagon official Michael Maloof told RT. According to Maloof, many Americans are now preoccupied with domestic scandals like "Russian collusion," and they're "not focused on the extent to which the Trump administration is providing backing and support to Al-Qaeda today in Syria. And it's really tragic."


However, those who are paying attention are "tired of the lies," Willy Wimmer, a former state secretary to the German defense minister, told RT.

"I think the public in the West is tired of the lies of their own government concerning Al-Qaeda, or other terrorists groups." He noted that it's an open secret that the US, UK, France, Saudi Arabia and Gulf states provide direct and indirect support to "rebel"groups that under normal circumstances would be considered terrorists.


What's The Endgame?

But what does the United States hope to gain from deterring an attack on Al-Qaeda's last enclave in Syria?

Washington's threats of military action are a way of preserving a "modicum of influence" in Syria, Maloof said. "The US is looking at Idlib and support for Al-Qaeda to maintain influence and try to deflect attention away from domestic problems." He added that the US is using the excuses of "humanitarian disaster and chemical weapons" to justify its military activity in the country.

"They're going to go kinetic if there's an attack in Idlib," Maloof predicted.

Wimmer warned against trying to overthink Washington's shocking change of heart concerning Al-Qaeda. "You can't look at US foreign policy under logical terms," he said.

"These groups are used to topple whole regions, not only Syria but also other countries, and at the end we fight against a threat that was organized by our own governments. And I think people are tired of this."


"Never forget" - the families of dead U.S. military personnel will never forget who lied them into the bogus "war on terror"

He noted that the US has "danced on its own argument" by accusing Russia of using anti-terrorism operations as a false pretext for getting militarily involved in Syria, adding that unlike Russia and Iran's presence in the country, "under all legal terms, there is no justification for a US presence in Syria under international law."

International Criminal Court Unfazed By U.S. Threats Of Sanctions Over Afghan War Crimes Probe

ICC needs to investigate/indict the CNN/NYT/MSM fake news frauds and Bush/Cheney warmongers that lied and shilled Americans into the illegal, bogus "war on terror"  

RT

The International Criminal Court (ICC) has said it will “continue to do its work undeterred,” after US National Security Advisor John Bolton threatened sanctions if the tribunal investigates alleged US war crimes in Afghanistan.


The Hague-based court investigates genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes and is backed by 123 countries - but not by China and the US. 

“The ICC, as a court of law, will continue to do its work undeterred, in accordance with those principles and the overarching idea of the rule of law,” it said in a statement on Tuesday. The tribunal’s remarks came in response to a scathing verbal attack launched by Bolton in Washington DC on Monday during a speech to the conservative Federalist Society.


“Today, on the eve of September 11th, I want to deliver a clear and unambiguous message on behalf of the president,” Bolton began, before launching into the blistering offensive against the ICC.

“The United States will use any means necessary to protect our citizens and those of our allies from unjust prosecution by this illegitimate court. We will not cooperate with the ICC. We will provide no assistance to the ICC… We will let the ICC die on its own. After all, for all intents and purposes, the ICC is already dead to us.”




Bolton then issued a very clear threat: If the international court continues to pursue the probe, Washington will ban ICC judges from entering the country, prosecute them and sanction their funding. His main objection is the notion that the ICC could have higher authority than the US constitution and US sovereignty.

“In secular terms we don't recognize any higher authority than the US constitution,” he said, adding that Trump “will not allow American citizens to be prosecuted by foreign bureaucrats, and he will not allow other nations to dictate our means of self defence.”


The CNN/MSM fake news frauds and CIA shills like Perino believe they have escaped justice for lying America into the illegal, immoral wars in Iraq and Afghanistan: the ICC has news for them

In November 2017, an ICC prosecutor requested approval to launch a probe into potential war crimes by the US armed forces and the CIA through the torture of detainees in Afghanistan.


However, Bolton didn’t come out swinging solely on the behalf of the US - he also attacked the ICC’s threat to Washington’s “friend and ally” Israel, as the Middle Eastern country faces an investigation into alleged war crimes against Palestinians.

Bolton said the probe into the actions of Israel, which he described as a “liberal, democratic nation,”was unacceptable, and added that any countries supporting the investigation and cooperating with the ICC would be subject to secondary sanctions.

Washington’s ICC Hypocrisy 'Without Limits," U.S. Doesn’t Care About Human Rights

The Bush/Cheney war criminals take one more step towards the dock at The Hague as Bolton squeals in terror  

RT
09/11/2018

Washington’s threats against the International Criminal Court (ICC) are evidence of American hypocrisy, as the US is “continually calling for the heads of others” and doesn’t actually care about human rights, analysts told RT.


As US National Security Advisor John Bolton said the ICC is “dead to us” in response to a probe into US war crimes in Afghanistan, international criminal lawyer Christopher Black told RT that American hypocrisy is clearly “without limits.” 

He believes the US is “continually calling for the heads of others, and their entire war against Syria is based on the pretext of justice for the alleged crimes of the Syrian government.”



Francis A. Boyle, and international law professor at the University of Illinois College of Law, expressed a similar sentiment to RT regarding US hypocrisy, despite the fact that Washington likes to to take the moral high ground.

“The US government never cares about human rights...this is pure propaganda,” he said.


Headed for incitement for war crimes: Bush, Cheney, Rice, Powell, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Bolton, Feith, Franks, Perle et al. along with the CNN/MSM fake news frauds and hacks that aided and abetted them 

What Bolton does care about, however, is “protecting the highest level officials of the United States government from investigation and prosecution,” Boyle said, while stressing that the national security adviser is not at all concerned with the fate of ordinary servicemen, servicewomen, and CIA agents.

But while the US is finally being put under a microscope by the ICC, its motivation to do so came only after “disastrous blows to the court” surrounding its prestige and credibility, after African countries threatened to withdraw from the ICC last year, Black said.


Tens of thousands of U.S. military personnel have been killed or maimed in the Bush/Cheney illegal wars in Iraq and Afghanistan

“Something needed to be done to try to restore some credibility, some appearance of impartiality; and that is what the announcement did, or tried to do…”

Boyle agreed, saying that the decision to look into the alleged US war crimes in Afghanistan amounts to a “propaganda move” by ICC prosecutor Fatou Bensouda.

“She felt she had to do something to placate Africa so then she said ‘alright, I’m going to look into what the Americans did in Afghanistan,’” Boyle said. “So now Bolton has responded to that.”




As for America’s behavior towards the ICC and its commitment to shield Israel from the court, Black said: “The US sees itself as above the law and therefore is an outlaw state. It has no respect for law whatsoever, its leadership only respects power...it and its client states in NATO in the Middle East and elsewhere are free to do as they please under their protection. They act as a criminal gang.”
