Phony Letterman Threat Tracked to Israeli SITE

Playing America Like a 3 Dollar Violin…


By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor with Brian Jobert

The threats made against David Letterman I know nothing about other than the email I got from Eddieleaks telling me they came from Rita Katz.  Did poor David Letterman do something to Israel?  Threats passed on like this one, are really “backhanded reminders” that something asked of them by the all powerful Israeli lobby or ADL wasn’t jumped on quickly enough, reminders done in the style of “Al Capone.”

Why Letterman?  I don’t have a clue.  Some say it may be his endorsement of Ron Paul for president, a move that angers Muslims because of Paul’s calls for a new 9/11 investigation.  Wait a minute, wouldn’t that anger Israelis instead?

But as to the source, please refer to this 2009 VT expose with research done by Brian Jobert.


Start by watching the video below, a Fox News broadcast.  Fox says it is Palestinians celebrating the 9/11 attacks.  In fact, the video is older (1991), a simple holiday celebration unrelated to anything, supplied by Israeli intelligence just as the stories about Saddam and the poor babies in Kuwait, you remember, the ones taken from their incubators?

This one, perhaps one of the most vicious propaganda attacks on the US ever made, pure racism, pure Islamophobia, came from Rupert Murdoch and the same folks who invented the threat against David Letterman.  This video makes up one small piece of evidence leading investigators to Tel Aviv when looking for the real perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks.  You see, this video was prepared and passed on to Fox News prior to 9/11.

In another similar “mistake,” the BBC reported the collapse of Building 7 20 minutes before it actually fell.  While Fox was running video’s from 1991 of a Palestinian celebration, the BBC reported an event 20 minutes into the future.

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.

(Another big SITE Intelligence/Mossad project, their “Al Qaeda”spokesman discovered to be an Israeli)

YouTube - Veterans Today -

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.

    Wow, now I know why these so-called “jihadi” websites are so neat, well built and run. Plus no one seams to be able to shut them down, not even the CIA-run Saudi despots. Hmmm…

    The nuclear accident in Japan was exactly 1 year after Japan criticized Israel.

    The (Zionist) murderer in Norway attacked the three places that were either anti-Israel or Pro-Palestine.

    Blackwater, which is now called Xe, is a Christian Zionist organization run by Erik Prince. Blackwater was not only guilty of multiple war crimes in Iraq but they were bought by the terrorist organization known as Monsanto.

    Monsanto has given us DDT, Agent Orange, aspartame (via Searle which they bought in 1985), Round Up, PCBs and genetically modified crops.

    Letterman is a Jewish hasbara agent involved in Mosaad ops. As so is the majority of Western media “talking heads”.
    The Jews have incorporated the actual subversion of the White race in self destruction by any means nessary to achieve said directive.
    These methods are tried and true to further the destruction of both Whites and those who are allied with the White race in order to subject more negro riots and wars in the ME to fulfill the zionist objective of destruction of all gentiles to obtain Jewsih supremeasy all over the earth and the untold sub concieus realm in all of us White people who are not yet aware of the Jews.

  7. Greg Bacon  August 20, 2011 at 6:19 am

    So Rita Katz has another ‘client,’ some Muslim jihadists who are still mad at the USA because we have too many freedoms?

    Here’s part of the story when it first came out:

    The SITE intelligence group said the death threat was posted on an online website used by militants after the writer became upset by a joke Letterman made about the death of a leading member of al Qaeda killed in an air strike in Pakistan.

    The militant called on Muslims in the United States to “cut the tongue of this lowly Jew and shut it forever,” the threat against Letterman said, according to a translation by SITE. The popular late-night television host is not Jewish.

    The writer was angered by watching Letterman on his show drawing his finger across his neck while talking about the June death of senior al Qaeda figure Ilyas Kashmiri.

    The message was posted on the website Shumukh al-Islam. SITE analyst Adam Raisman told Entertainment Weekly the website was “a clearing house for al Qaeda material” and drew supporters of the group headed by the late Osama bin Laden.

    I spent some time looking for the website “Shumukh al-Islam,” and couldn’t find it on the web.

    Maybe its Tel Aviv servers were down?

    Truthman, first of all tell us your real name. You to curmudgeon. Second Truth you need to watch Letterman before you rush to his defence. The jew mobs control is slipping and Letterman is working overtime to keep them in control. He lampoons truth tellers regularly insinuating that anyone not swallowing the official line is crazy.

    To quote you “no offence, but you are wrong.

  12. Sami Jadallah  August 18, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    “terrorism” is a bonanza, a windfall, created by Israel for the benefit of Israel , will be there as long as the American people allow Israel and its Fifth Column of Israel Firsters keep control over this nation, its people and its destiny.

    If Letterman supported Ron Paul, it was to get close enough to him to stab him in the back.

    Adam Pearlman is an Israeli citizen, born in the United States.
    He holds an Israeli passport.
    Why do you write long long before you mind gets into gear?

    Why does Duff always do this kind of thing?

    Adam Pearlman is a JEW.

    Not an “Israeli”… An American JEW.

    Just like Gordon Duff.

    David Letterman threatened on jihadist website over joke
    By DAVID BAUDER August 17, 2011 6:41PM

    “The Site Monitoring Service, a private intelligence organization that watches online activity, said Wednesday that the threat was posted a day earlier on the Shumuka al-Islam forum, a popular Internet destination for radical Muslims.”

    Site Monitoring Servicie

    “Rita Katz, the Director and co-founder of the SITE Intelligence Group, has studied, tracked, and analyzed international terrorists, the global jihadist network and terrorism financing for more than a decade. Since well before September 11, Ms. Katz has personally briefed government officials, including the NSC at the White House, investigators in the Department of Justice, Department of the Treasury, and the Department of Homeland Security on the financing and recruitment networks of the terrorist movement.”

    Almost simultaneous to RK’s arrival in the US in 1997, MEMRI (Middle East Media Review Institute was founded in1998 by Yigal Carmon, a former colonel in Israeli military intelligence, and another Israeli Meyrav Wurmser (yes, the wife of Iraq war perpetrator Wurmser). They translate Hebrew, Arabic, Turkish, and Persian print and video pieces into English and provide major news outlets (that are on their wavelength) free of charge. They promoted “This regime will disappear from the pages of time” as the infamous “Israel must be wiped off the map” (notice “disappear” is intransitive and requires no executioner-bad, but “wipe” is transitive and requires executioner-good, ie Iran) and “We will annihilate the Jews,” for “The Jews are killing us” in a Gaza cartoon educational program (used by Jon Stewart last year as a reason for Is/Pa impasse). They created Al Jazeera too and made it the exclusive news outlet for American atrocities in Iraq; remember all Abu Ghraib pictures and tapes, and early OBL tapes, went to Al Jazeera first. Al Jazeera is there to make sure atrocities in ME are not all blamed on Israel.

    Big Distraction no matter who it traces back to. Pres. and VP both are deeply negative in current news cycle. Repubs riding a high wave. Suddenly Letterman is all the “news”. Come on, is everyone getting that old so quickly? Letterman always plays to the highest bidder. Pres is hurting election wise, letterman is saying, “hey everyone, look over here”

    Also over rode the news of the economy and wall street drop. As I have always said, “Look for what is not there, and should be”. In this case, the truth.

  23. pancho villa  August 18, 2011 at 10:24 am

    Reading between the lines of Ron Pauls stated position, it is easy to see the culprits behind his non news interviews with the zionist controlled publications. Bring the troops home and cut the foreign payoffs will certainly ignite the money grabbers attention. It will also lead back to the foreign lobbyist that dominate our congress critters. There is a huge leak in the zionist dam an there are to many dutch boys with their fingers in the holes to stop this onslaught. The 81 congress critters now on vacation in the ah, holy land, can never stop this deluge of facts an truth.

  24. Brian  August 18, 2011 at 10:13 am

    A lot of the major news media is mentioning this story.

    Some excerpts from the Associated Press article:

    A frequent contributor to a jihadist website has threatened David Letterman, urging Muslim followers to “cut the tongue” of the late-night host because of a joke the comic made on his CBS show.

    Al-Basrawi, which is likely to be an alias, has made some 1,200 postings to the Muslim website, said Adam Raisman, an analyst for the Site Monitoring Service. The private firm, part of the Site Intelligence Group, provides information to government and commercial clients on what jihadists are saying on the Internet and traditional media. Raisman said the online forum is often used by al-Qaida.

    Muslim extremist groups in the past few months have increased calls for people to take violent action against certain targets in the West, he said.

    “The concern is that there is someone who will read it, agree with it and say, ‘I want to be the Sayyid Nosair of 2011 and kill David Letterman,'” Raisman said.

    Brian: Well perhaps most of the threats by Al Qaeda members at the website are done by Israelis at Mossad headquarters or maybe from their homes between sessions of watching Internet porn.

    I think Raisman went over the line with this comment: “The concern is that there is someone who will read it, agree with it and say, ‘I want to be the Sayyid Nosair of 2011 and kill David Letterman,'” Raisman said.

    Also, according to the article the threat mentioned cutting the tongue of Letterman not killing him; why ratchet up the threat Raisman? Well whenever SITE and Rita Katz are involved you think what really happened?

    From the Associated Press article:

    Muslim extremist groups in the past few months have increased calls for people to take violent action against certain targets in the West, he said.

    Brian: I hope the Mossad isn’t trying to set the stage for phony terrorist attacks. In early June, the hilarious Adam Yahiye Gadahn, whose real name is Adam Pearlman, a white guy with Jewish Heritage and a supposed top member of Al Qaeda, (perhaps he works for the Mossad) encouraged Muslims to kill Americans.

    From an article:

    In a two-hour video, released on Friday 06/03/2011 urging Muslims who live in the USA to take advantage of the easy access to firearms and buy guns to kill Americans, Adam Yahiye Gadahn, an American-born spokesman for the terror network, cited America as an example where Muslims in the West have tools at their disposal for a holy war against “the enemies of Islam.”

    “America is absolutely awash with easily obtainable firearms,” said Gadahn, who is known as Azzam al-Amriki. “You can go down to a gun show at the local convention center and come away with a fully automatic assault rifle without a background check and most likely without having to show an identification card.

    “So what are you waiting for?” he asked in a matter-of-fact tone.

    From Wikipedia: Gadahn was born Adam Pearlman, the son of musician Phil Pearlman. Gadahn’s Jewish paternal grandfather, Carl Pearlman, was a prominent urologist; and on the Board of Directors of the Anti-Defamation League. According to Gadahn, he was a “zealous supporter” of Israel.

    In a short period of time, Gadahn became a senior commander to Bin Laden and is assumed to be playing the role of “translator, video producer, and cultural interpreter.

    Brian: Gadahn a senior commander to Bin Laden, that’s just silly.

    I remember that excellent VT 2009 expose with research from Brian Jobert. That guy is really courageous

    Letterman endorsed RP. Hopefully someone from this site has warned him. Ron Paul supporters(and Ron Paul bless his brave heart) are now formal targets. Cross your fingers that Ron Paul doesn’t fly in any small planes.

  26. Game Over  August 18, 2011 at 9:51 am

    Yep- RP is a threat to status quo

  27. Garibaldi  August 18, 2011 at 9:48 am

    For example back in May, NPR ( National Propaganda Radio, along with BIGTIME hasbara mouthpiece and super-smarmy Zio-snotnose Melissa Block ), in full concert with Katz, automatically blurts out:
    …have a listen how the Zio-drool drivels from her porcine lips with the greatest of ease…

  28. JJ  August 18, 2011 at 9:48 am

    I was thinking same thing. Leterman endorsed Ron Paul the day before this came out.

  29. Truthman  August 18, 2011 at 9:44 am

    Did you not know that Letterman has endorsed Ron Paul for president? Could that not be the motive behind he threats?

  30. Penumbra  August 18, 2011 at 9:42 am

    Contrary to the much too kind treatment you accord Ms Katz, G, in my estimation she is indeed wholly culpable of (amongst other things) fraud, material complicity in liable and above all accessory to propaganda with intent to foment war crimes and crimes against humanity.

    The further case may indeed be made that she and her cohorts are guilty of treason and should be imprisoned for the rest of their natural lives at hard labor, at the very least, if not adorning the end of a rope.

    Daddy got the justice he deserved and daughter hasn’t fallen far from that diseased tree, to be sure.

  31. Gordon Duff  August 18, 2011 at 9:10 am
