By Gordon Duff and Brian Jobert: Who says Al Qaeda takes credit for a bombing?  Rita Katz.  Who gets us bin Laden tapes?  Rita Katz.  Who gets us prettymuch all information telling us Muslims are bad?  Rita Katz?  Rita Katz is the Director of Site Intelligence, primary source for intelligence used by news services, Homeland Security, the FBI and CIA.  What is her qualification?  She served in the Israeli Defense Force.  She has a college degree and most investigative journalists believe the Mossad “helps” her with her information.  We find no evidence of any qualification whatsoever of any kind.  A bartender has more intelligence gathering experience.

Nobody verifies her claims.  SITE says Al Qaeda did it, it hits the papers.  SITE says Israel didn’t do it, that hits the papers too.  What does SITE really do?  They check the internet for “information,” almost invariably information that Israel wants reported and it is sold as news, seen on American TV, reported in our papers and passed around the internet almost as though it were actually true.  Amazing.

Do we know if the information reported comes from a teenager in Seattle or a terror cell in Jakarta?  No, of course not, we don’t have a clue.  Can you imagine buying information on Islamic terrorism from an Israeli whose father was executed as a spy by Arabs?

It is quite likely that everything you think you know about terror attacks such as the one in Detroit or whether Osama bin Laden is alive or dead comes from Rita Katz.  Does she make it all up?  We don’t know, nobody knows, nobody checks, they simply buy it, print it, say it comes from Site Intelligence and simply forget to tell us that this is, not only a highly biased organization but also an extremely amateur one also.

Is any of this her fault, Ritas?  No.  She is herself, selling her work.  The blame is not Site Intelligence, it is the people who pass on the information under misleading circumstances.

Imagine if a paper carried a story like this:

Reports that Al Qaeda was responsible for bombing the mosque and train station were given to us by an Israeli woman who says she found it on the internet.

This is fair.  Everyone should be able to earn a living and information that comes from Israel could be without bias but the chances aren’t very good.  In fact, any news organization, and most use this service, that fails to indicate that the sources they use are “rumored” to be a foreign intelligence service with a long history of lying beyond human measure, is not to be taken seriously.

Can we prove that SITE Intelligence is the Mossad?  No.  Would a reasonable person assume it is?  Yes.

Would a reasonable person believe anything from this source involving Islam or the Middle East?  No, they would not.

SITE’s primary claim to fame other than bin Laden videos with odd technical faults is their close relationship with Blackwater.  Blackwater has found site useful.  Blackwater no longer exists as they had to change their name because of utter lack of credibility.

What can be learned by examining where our news comes from?  Perhaps we could start being realistic and begin seeing much of our own news and the childish propaganda it really is.

Propaganda does two things:

1.  It makes up phony reasons to justify acts of barbaric cruelty or insane greed.

2.  It blames people for things they didn’t do because the people doing the blaming really did it themselves.  We call these things “false flag/USS Liberty” incidents.

Next time you see dancing Palestinians and someone tells you they are celebrating a terror attack, it is more likely they are attending a birthday party.  This is what we have learned, perhaps this is what we had best remember.

From an AFP article on Site Intelligence:

Rita Katz and S.I.T.E. are set to release yet another “aL-Qaeda” tape

Despite a massive manhunt by the world’s intelligence agencies, BL seems to evade their combined efforts, staying on the run. But he still has time to drop into his recording studio and cook up a fresh tape for the likes of Rita Katz and her outfit called S.I.T.E. SITE is staffed by TWO people, Katz and a Josh Devon.

WASHINGTON (AFP) The head of the Al-Qaeda network Osama bin Laden is expected to release a taped message on Iraq, a group monitoring extremist online forums said Thursday. The 56-minute tape by the hunted militant is addressed to Iraq and an extremist organization based there, the Islamic State of Iraq, said the US-based SITE monitoring institute, citing announcements on “jihadist forums.”

It said the release was “impending” but did not say whether the message was an audio or video tape. Despite a massive manhunt and a 25-million-dollar bounty on his head, he has evaded capture and has regularly taunted the United States and its allies through warnings issued on video and audio cassettes.

Yes, despite a massive manhunt by the world’s intelligence agencies, BL seems to evade their combined efforts, staying on the run. But he still has time to drop into his recording studio and cook up a fresh tape for the likes of Rita Katz and her outfit called S.I.T.E. SITE is staffed by TWO people, Katz and a Josh Devon.

Yet these two individuals manage to do what the ENTIRE combined assets of the world’s Western intelligence can’t:

Be the first to obtain fresh video and audio tapes from aL-Qaeda with Bin Laden making threats and issuing various other comments. If BL appears a bit “stiff” in the latest release, that’s because he is real stiff, as in dead.

How is it that a Jewish owned group like S.I.T.E. can outperform the world’s best and brightest in the intelligence field and be the first to know that a group like al-Qaeda is getting ready to release another tape?

How is it possible that Rita Katz and S.I.T.E. can work this magic? Maybe looking at Katz’s background will help:

Rita Katz is Director and co-founder of the SITE Institue. Born in Iraq, her father was tried and executed as an Israeli spy, whereupon her family moved to Israel [the move has been described as both an escape and an emmigration in different sources]. She received a degree from the Middle Eastern Studies program at Tel Aviv University, and is fluent in Hebrew and Arabic. She emigrated to the US in 1997.

Katz was called as a witness in the trial, but the government didn’t claim she was a terrorism expert. During the trial it was discovered that Katz herself had worked in violation of her visa agreement when she first arrived in America in 1997.

She also admitted to receiving more than $130,000 for her work as an FBI consultant on the case.

    An old phenomenon that is new to me are these cryto-Jews that hide out in movements like Trot-sky; a “nice Russian boy”. Infiltration is part of their culture and they get started very young.

    When you research the happenings in the Ottoman empire with Freemasony, the Zionists getting together to genocide the Armenians, you’ll learn Zionist Turkish officers is a certainty. (Egypt’s too is severely infiltrated and now promoted after the last “lone nut” crash.)

    Which is a big reason this recent Gaza massacre has me more than a little paranoid about Israel and Turkey being used to start another war. (With the German torpedo attack on South Korea as a backup.)

    Now saber rattling against Chavez.

    How long until the “democracy fairies” LAND in Venezuela?
    VIVA La Roma or reverse?

    You must not confuse the religion Islam with the people who abuse it. Just as Christianity has been misused many times in history. Capitalism is just as well a system of world domination, with negative side-effects in the form of multinationals who have lack on pollution, peoplerights, peoples health etc.

    It is true that there are fundamental people misusing the Islam for more influence and power in the world (by people who are afraid to loose their way of life, their perception of good life). Just as the USA in the person of Bush Jr. has (sideways) misused his religion to interfere in the middle east just for geopolitical reasons. And he has misused it for elections. (You don’t believe Bush Jr. is really religious in his heart do you?).

    Btw, myself I’m raised as katholic, but I’m not religious at all. I’m more attracted to Buddhism, and I’m not attracted to Islam at all.

  5. Chips  January 8, 2010 at 6:57 am

    It’s an illusory world. I believe the thrust of the article, because it fits logically into my view of political reality. But I must point out the comic irony in the statement, “What does SITE really do? They check the internet for “information,”…”, when here we are, getting our information from the internet!

    That said, I’ll probably spend some portion of the day researching SITE.

    On the internet.


  6. Chips  January 8, 2010 at 6:47 am

    Exactly. As detailed in many mainstream articles, a blasting cap or other initiating device is required to set off the type of explosive Mutallab carried on the flight. He wasn’t supplied with one. There was no intent to blow up the plane.

  7. Bailor  January 7, 2010 at 7:13 pm

    Wake up folks. “Trained?” If its true that this guy actually had explosives that he, in his alert mind, placed under his nuts and all that happens is a small fire, what buffoon needed to “train” him for that? If a) this phantom, non-existing club (Al Qaida) is supposed to have tons of millions of dollars at its disposal; b) the the help of every level of science and technological brains imaginable; c) has access to highly sensitive intelligence information, does it make even a scintilla of sense that an entity allegedly capable of pulling off 9/11 with greater precision than a rocket scientist could ever dream of would perpetrate this buffoon stunt and not be embarrassed enough to claim responsibility for it? Let me make this perfectly clear NO ONE IS TRAINED for petty, stupid, blundering acts as this is alleged. If they go through the trouble of “training” someone to blow up a plane, the deed is as good as done.

  10. KatzAndDogs  January 7, 2010 at 1:38 pm

    Great article, to the point.
    It seems that it has gotten far too easy to fabricate lies, diffuse them via the right media connections, have a willing and possibly complicit media spread them far and wide, then crafting deadly policies and strategies based on the resulting “public opinion”.
    Thanks for being vigilant here, guys.

  11. Jeremy  January 3, 2010 at 8:57 pm

    Israel duping the United States? Come on, you gotta be kidding me right? Zionism is a loving, caring ideology that should be embraced by everyone and always has the United States’ best interest at heart…….

    If Americans actually knew how many horrible atrocities – 9/11 included – have been committed against us over the past 100 years by Zionist interests, we would have severed ties with Israel decades ago. The ideology of Zionism is a sick one and America needs to rid itself of any politician with ties to it.

    Google Benjamin Freedman and listen to his famous 1961 speech which warned Americans against the coming wave of Zionism. He was a Jewish man who was once a devoted Zionist. He provides some amazing evidence regarding WWI and WWII that every American should hear. I could provide hundreds of examples of criminal events that were sponsored by Israel/Zionism but you get the idea. We need to end our alliance with that horrible country and rid ourselves of ALL ZIONISTS.

    Great article from Duff & Jobert!
    Interesting follow-up, Rex Carlson!

    Thanks for your needful information. Keep up the good work!

  13. Rex Carlson  January 2, 2010 at 4:16 am


    I just ran across the following info. on Rita Katz. (I’d never even heard of her before I read your article today – MANY thanks for educating me, seriously!)

    Granted, the following blob piece was written in 2007 but there’s some very interesting, detailed info on her background and family past that’s included here:


    in part, it says…

    “… Katz, a fluent Arabic speaker, was born in Basra in 1963 to a wealthy Iraqi Jewish family. In 1968 her father was arrested on charges of spying for Israel and the rest of the family put under house arrest. The following year Katz’s father was convicted and executed in a public hanging and Katz’s mother managed to escape with the children to Israel.

    Yup, there you have it folks. Born to a Iraqi Jewish family, her father was hanged for spying for Israel. Do I need to say more? You think this woman has a personal axe to grind with Iraq or Muslims? I would say so….

    While in Israel, Katz served in the Israeli Defense Forces and studied politics and history at Tel Aviv University. She later married a medical student and in 1997 came to the United States with her husband who received a National Institutes of Health fellowship.

    Mossad anyone?? Now you know where Rita got the software, her motivations for “discovering” the Al Qaeda tape and where the Bush Admin got the “Intelligence” for linking Bin Laden to Saddam, which we now know is complete bullshit. …”

  14. barrie w.  January 1, 2010 at 9:51 pm

    for starters, you must concede there is only one “political party”. from there, study forward.

  15. Lizzie  January 1, 2010 at 4:59 pm

    I wrote: “The best thing to do is educate these new troops and veterans.” We all got something to learn from each other.

    There are a lot more Americans on ‘all sides’ that are getting sick and tired of the TWO major political parties so locked into battle that so much cannot actually be done for the good of the American people.

    More people are realizing that the only people getting anywhere, as they line their pockets, are the politicians and corporations.

    We are ALL getting sick of this.

    …and more people are questioning exactly why we are spilling American blood and if is really keeping us safe here at HOME.

    Everyone appreciates and grateful for America’s sons and daughters, mothers and father, sisters and brothers that are all over the world, serving Our Country.

    More American people are wanting the career politicians that can make their own salary, and live well even, to remember: YOU ARE OUR PUBLIC SERVANTS”.

    What American People need to do is keep close track of their public servants and hold them accountable or get rid of them.

    How much is the American veteran population the voting population? 7% at least? That can tip some scales as a start.

    Rex said: “I believe that, very soon ( and what all of this has all has been building toward ) the imposition of permanent martial law in the US and globally. Our military and police will soon be commanded to enforce this travesty. If they won’t, it will changes everything. They MUST not turn against their fellow Americans or all is lost.”

    That is possible. I don’t say this because, “I’m scared” of the current president as some may protest, but because I know that some of our military people in the past were trained for aggressive ‘riot control’ against possible fellow American protesters

    Have they lately? I don’t know. I just know it is possible and could very well cause ‘ill-effects’ on the military people being asked follow orders against fellow Americans.

    The best thing to do is educate these new troops and veterans. Be factual as possible. Let facts speak for themselves, but tell them the truth as Rex suggests.

    Happy New Years! See ya!

  17. duffster  December 31, 2009 at 4:18 pm


    Consider us the infotainment of the non-aligned press. We keep track of the sites you mention plus stay in personal contact with many of those involved.

    Of late, Gates has been kicking ass. Be sure to go thru http://www.opinion-maker.org, our outlet in Pakistan.

    They push the envelope there.

  18. Rex Carlson  December 31, 2009 at 4:15 pm

    Another great article; very fair. That’s something that gets harder for me to do each day so, thanks for the rolemodeling.

    I’ve long believed that some of the most critical peices in saving all of us were the hackers (Climategate hoax) and the leakers ( http://wikileaks.org/ ). But just as critical is assuring a free, open, and uncensored internet, Electronic Privacy Information Center ( http://epic.org/ ). Another important one issue is the treatment and exposure of the info of whistleblowers ( http://www.boilingfrogspost.com/ )

    If you’re unfamiliar with these sites and the work that they do, please don’t be.
    Of course, those on the dark side know this, too, and are working overtime plus, plus, plus to change it.

    Another huge piece – maybe the most important of all – is actually the military and police, etc., of this – and every other country. If those groups ever turn and support “The people”, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights in this country, it will change everything. Educating these groups is imperative.

    Understanding that they are currently fighting and dying ONLY to protect corporate interests and the encroachment of global governance, may one day do the trick. They are human, they have families, and they will eventually follow their brothers and sisters who have awoken to the truth and said “No” to the powers that be that intetiponally manipulate us all for the gain of the few.

    This is why these articles are so important. Veterans have a powerful voice and actions that help educate those who are still active and those who are thinking about joining the “fight for freedom and democracy.” They need to know that they are being used, just as it was for soldiers in VietNam.

    I believe that, very soon ( and what all of this has all has been building toward ) the imposition of permanent martial law in the US and globally. Our military and police will soon be commanded to enforce this travesty. If they won’t, it will changes everything. They MUST not turn against their fellow Americans or all is lost. Look at what happened to peaceful protestors at the last G20 Summit. It was UNbelievable and sadly bodes what is to come.

    Our liberties and those in other countries are slowly but surely being removed.
    Besides eduating people we have to take serious action on all fronts. Duff, please use your wisdom, experience and, expertise, to advise us in the direction of effective and fruitful action.

    Thanks for all you do.

    I wouldn’t believe anything the Israeli government tells us about terrorist groups:

    Of the MOSSAD, the Israeli intelligence service, the SAMS officers say: “Wildcard. Ruthless and cunning. Has capability to target U.S. forces and make it look like a Palestinian/Arab act.” Army School of Advanced Military Studies (SAMS) http://www.public-action.com/911/sams.html

    “Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It’s classified information.”
    — US official quoted in Carl Cameron’s Fox News report on the Israeli spy ring and its connections to 9-11. http://whatreallyhappened.com/WRHARTICLES/spyring.html

    A former President of Italy stated in a major Italian Newspaper http://www.americanfreepress.net/html/9-11_solved118.html that everyone in the European and American intelligence communities knows that Israel’s Mossad was responsible for the 911 attacks. The Mossad is Israel’s intelligence agency.

    The Mossad motto: “By way of deception, thou shall do war”

  20. Matt Ford, M.P.A.  December 31, 2009 at 9:08 am

    Duff and Jobert wrote an excellent article. Well done!

  21. duffster  December 31, 2009 at 9:02 am

    All the information the government has on the terrorits is this:

    1.  They were released from Gitmo by Bush instead of being put on trial as top Al Qaeda leaders.

    2.  Yemen says they were helped by Israel.  Yemen is credible as they are actively fighting the terrorists, particularly in the last couple of days, anyway. (perhaps for this reason)

    3.  Our terrorist’s father has strong ties to both Israel and Yemen.

    4.  A powerful non-Islamic intelligence organization helped our terrorist in Amsterday, get past passport control and was seen helping him on the plane disguised as a Sudanese refuge. 

    5.  Reliable sources tell me the bomb, if it worked would have failed to cause any significant damage to the plane.

    6.  Security organizations in the US, Israel and, perhaps even Europe, all knew this attack was expected and who the attacker was.

    I hope this helps.


  22. Terry  December 31, 2009 at 5:10 am

    Maybe we got the informaton by the guy who tired to blow him self up. The president has not said who has done it as far as a group. But we do know where he came from. learning who trained him, and I belive there may be targets comming up soon from Yeman.

    We dont need to ask the terrorist what group they identify with. We only have to know where they are hideing.

    Isreals sayiing what group did what to us is really useless informaont without tellintg us where they are.


  23. duffster  December 31, 2009 at 1:34 am

    Yes, Islam must be full of Zionists.


  24. Robert Laity  December 31, 2009 at 1:15 am

    Down with Islam. It is not a religiob but a system for world domination.

  25. Brian  December 31, 2009 at 12:31 am

    Before we start bombing Arabs in Yemen in response to the Detroit crotch bomber we need to evaluate our sources. As Gordon has shown, Rita Katz is not a reliable source.

    Do you remember Judith Miller from the New York Times? She shocked and scared America with all the phony evidence (provided by the ardent Zionist Scooter Libby) that Saddam Hussein had developed weapons of mass destruction. Americans were frightened that Saddam would soon kill grandmas and eight year-olds and the rest of us Americans.

    Rita Katz, the former Israeli soldier, whose father was killed by the Iraqi government, has gone beyond the role of the disgraced Judith Miller. Does she have a Mossad coffee mug on her desk?

    Rita Katz is the expert that the major media and government agencies primarily rely on to verify the phony Osama and Al Qaeda communications.

    The Osama tapes have been shown to be false.

    We don’t use top-notch USA government intelligence agents for verification. Why? Unlike Rita, USA experts just might be more concerned about America than Israel. The Israeli Lobby and the Zionist controlled media are in charge and have been for decades. Just ask the prestigious professors John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt.

    All the major USA media has enthusiastically stated that the Al Qaeda Yemen franchise has claimed responsibility for the Detroit bomber. Here is a classic example from a UPI article titled “Bomb Attempt Men were in Custody”: “The SITE Intelligence Group, which tracks militant Islamist Web sites, said it found a statement posted on a jihadist Internet forum in which al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula claims to have been responsible for the incident, The New York Times reported.”

    The director of SITE Intelligence is the previously mentioned, biased Rita Katz. Oh my.

    That UPI report is shocking, disturbing and hilarious. Anyone, including Israel’s intelligence agency the Mossad, could go on the Internet and claim to be Al Qaeda from Yemen and state they masterminded the evil event in order to frame Muslims.

    False flags have been deviously done since the days of the Roman Empire and the Internet makes it very easy for intelligence agencies to blame patsies.

    If the Muslims didn’t sit on natural resources or land the Israeli government covets they might be able to live normal lives. Americans need to evaluate their news sources.
