DAVIS FOR AAFIA SWAP DEMANDED
“Enclaves of Americans, CIA, Blackwater, “diplomats,” are said to be all over Pakistan. Webster Tarpley (video below) claims they are recruiting and training terrorists.”
By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor
Americans have been told one of their diplomats is being held illegally in Pakistan after killing two terrorists. The American government has made every imaginable effort to secure his release. Why would America’s most powerful ally, a nation dependent on American aid to survive, a nation who has lost more troops supporting America’s wars than America herself, suffered more terror attacks and more economic disruption simply, as the news reports, hold someone repeatedly called an “innocent diplomat” hostage?
(Initial police interrogation of Raymond Davis)
Why are the people of Pakistan ready to topple their own government if American Raymond Davis is released?
This week, the young wife of one of those Davis killed, shot in the back, committed suicide. This isn’t Egypt. Pakistan is an American ally in the field, with a million man army, nuclear weapons and one of the best trained military forces in the world.
Enclaves of Americans, CIA, Blackwater, “diplomats,” are said to be all over Pakistan. Webster Tarpley (video below) claims they are recruiting and training terrorists. There is no evidence of Davis and those like him be they dozens, hundreds or thousands, are actually performing any mission in either the best interests of either the United States or Pakistan. Why are they there, who do they really work for and what are they doing?
The story of Raymond Davis is more than a single incident whose facts may never be known. Davis, now an icon representing both the deteriorating relationship between America and Pakistan and the anger and mistrust Pakistani’s direct toward their own government, may well be innocent of any crime. It no longer matters. He is, in any form, in any guise, a symptom of a disease.
AMERICA NO LONGER CREDIBLE
Governments are expected to lie and America is more the “rule” than the “exception” in that category. America’s credibility around the world was destroyed the day Colin Powell went before the United Nations with his imaginary “slam dunk” proof of Saddam Hussein’s weapons programs.
It wasn’t his personal reputation he destroyed that day, it was America’s. Nations always lie, sometimes with good reason. That day, lying became a national policy for the United States, lying to the world and, especially lying to the American people. Powell hit a 10.0 on the Richter Scale of lies that day. That day, while the molten granite and steel beneath the World Trade Center continued to cool, Powell got away with it.
Nations lie out of national interest. Too often that interest has been economic and predatory. Today, a powerful nation such as the United States, economically bankrupt, politically crippled and hopelessly divided, can fall victim to the influence of a globalist agenda that transcends anything previously imagined. When this happens, and it has happened, no conspiracy theory can approach reality.
No conspiracy theory would ever go far enough.
Powell was simply following orders, told to put his personal credibility “out there,” spending that and the world’s sympathy for the 3000 dead of 9/11. As much as elected officials and mainstream media around the world choose to ignore it, the people of the world. everywhere in the world, no longer trust America, in fact the only broad based poll ever taken showed that Australians, nearly 4 out of 5, believe the American government is fully complicit in the planning and execution of the attacks on 9/11 and, perhaps, other terror attacks as well.
Powell, in seconds, transformed what had been a reputation as the most respected and trusted man in the world to that of a liar and buffoon. All America was soon to join him.
The “Davis incident,” two carloads of special operations mercenaries, Davis in custody, charged with two counts of murder, the second car fled the scene running down and killing a civilian in its haste, and the careless lies that America’s State Department put out, puts America on that path again.
SECRET AMERICAN GROUP BELIEVED TERROR ORGANIZATION
How does all this apply to Raymond Davis, the American currently facing two charges of murder in Pakistan? How indeed!
Why don’t people in Pakistan and around the world believe America simply “forgot” to file paperwork listing him as a diplomat? Why would Pakistanis by the millions believe Davis, not just a killer but a terrorist as well?
What Americans aren’t being told is that Davis and his friends in the second car, the one not reported in the American press, are among hundreds infiltrated into Pakistan, not as diplomats but under the highly suspect Joint Special Operations Command tasked “quasi-publicly” with assassinating terrorist leaders.
Sold to congress in secret committee conclaves as a “vital capability” in what was then called the “Global War on Terror,” the plan was to use private contractors funded “off the books,” State Department, USAID, CIA, Defense, to do what the military, CIA and FBI could not, including funding terror groups. Under the leadership of Vice President Dick Cheney, this secretive organization would create parallel terrorist networks around the world to undermine the credibility of what they told congress was the massive and highly organized Al Qaeda network that threatened America’s security.
What they didn’t tell congress is that Al Qaeda was, in itself, created by the United States under a similar program and had never existed. The dozens of “web based” groups blustering about being Al Qaeda are in fact part of a non-existent front group created to provide cover for America’s bloated military industrial complex to find a replacement “enemy” now that the Soviet bloc could no longer be kept glued together. Billions on defense could now be channeled into the private sector with intelligence gathering and special operations “outsourced” to groups with closer ties to Israel than America, new groups springing up daily, mercenaries from Peru, Chile, Ethiopia, Indonesia, unaccountable, unsupervised, “no-bid contracts,” creating a self perpetuating cycle of “false flag” terror, destabilizing drone attacks, disinformation and propaganda.
Many, not just millions of everyday citizens but military and intelligence leaders of Pakistan as well, believe the shadowy group to be involved in, not only spying but in coordinating a terror war against Pakistan. Americans like Davis, armed, some in native garb, some carrying explosives, have been, not only observed but arrested in Pakistan.
One of the best known American assets used to fund terrorist groups, behind the front of Islamic charities was a CIA agent whose cover identity was “Tim Osman.” We now know him to have been Osama bin Laden, killed in Afghanistan in 2001, not killed as a terrorist leader but murdered to keep him silent. The bin Laden family had long been, not only business partners with the Bush clan but involved in intelligence and defense projects with them for decades. There is no family on earth closer to the Bush family than the bin Ladens.
Immediately after 9/11, only two planes left the United States. One held Israelis who needed to escape FBI questioning in case the one of the infamous “Dancing Israeli’s” were to crack under interrogation and implicate other Mossad cells.
Authorizing this flight was an act of treason.
The other plane carried the bin Ladens to safety in Saudi Arabia. This was an act of friendship and loyalty on the part of President George W. Bush.
PAKISTAN “IN PLAY”
When Davis was arrested, two young locals reported to have been shot numerous times in the back, part of a two car convoy heading to an area known for terror bombings, in a part of Pakistan remote from any possible American interest, hundreds of miles from Karachi and America’s supply lines, hundreds of miles from the capital of Islamabad and hundreds of miles from the FATA (Federally Administered Tribal Areas) region, the people of Pakistan believed their suspicions confirmed.
They believe an American terrorist had been arrested, one complicit in the bombings that go on every day in Pakistan, bombings that the military leadership of Pakistan believes serve a globalist agenda, America, Israel, India and Britain. Military leaders in Pakistan believe their nation, as with Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan, has been selected for destruction and dismemberment as part of a plan to dominate the Eurasian continent in light of the power vacuum that has existed since the collapse of the Soviet Union. History has confirmed their greatest fears and has done so with a clarity they now dread.
Will we be finding, in the coming months, that the struggles for freedom in Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria, Albania, Jordan, Somalia and elsewhere have been orchestrated inside a similar framework?
SPY SWAP, WILL AMERICA SACRIFICE RAYMOND DAVIS?
Few Americans are aware that Dr. Aafia Siddiqui, an MIT trained microbiologist, mother of two (children kidnapped and believed dead), wife of a Boston physician, was convicted and sentenced to 87 years in prison last year. Her crime? She is accused, after 5 years of torture and sexual abuse which left her wheelchair bound, of trying to murder 5 Americans during an interrogation session after no other charge could be brought. Five years of torture and there were no confessions despite attempts to show her to be a key player in Iraq’s nuclear program, long proven a Bush fairy tale.
87 pound Aafia was shot twice by her “translator” who was decorated for this heroic act.
No one at her trail asked why a Boston resident with a doctorate from MIT who has spoken English all her life needed a translator?
Millions of Pakistanis have demonstrated for her release. Now, those millions are saying that the only way Raymond Davis will return to the United States is if Dr. Aafia is returned in a “swap,” much as those between America and the Soviet Union during the cold war.
This is what we know about this case. While on a visit to Karachi with two of her children, Dr. Aafia and her children were kidnapped by a Pakistani crime organization who passed her along until she eventually ended up in the secret CIA detention facility at Bagram Air Force Base in Afghanistan. News stories had tied her to the infamous “yellow cake” uranium story.
Valerie Plame had a movie made about her role in debunking this story. Dr. Aafia Siddiqui is still is in prison for 87 years based on the same lies. Her children are dead, murdered by her captors, quite probably, murdered by American agents working in Pakistan for the same company that hired Raymond Davis.
When it turned out that there was no “yellow cake” uranium in the first place, after 2 children were murdered, it was impossible to release Dr. Aafia.
Every aspect of Dr. Aafia’s arrest and detention violated the United Nations Convention on Torture. Admissions to these criminal acts are part of the record of her trial. Any and all involved, not only in her torture but her trial as well face criminal prosecution under international law and may be detained at any time.
BUSH FACING ARREST FOR AAFIA AND OTHER CRIMES
As Americans learned last week, former President George W. Bush is facing and other Americans are under international travel restriction, facing criminal prosecution. President Bush cancelled a speaking engagement in Switzerland with an Israeli nationalist organization because he faced arrest for kidnapping and torture, acts he openly admits authorizing in his recent autobiography. Spain is similarly seeking to indict Bush and others.
For the purposes of this Convention, torture means any act by which severe pain or suffering, whether physical or mental, is intentionally inflicted on a person for such purposes as obtaining from him or a third person information or a confession, punishing him for an act he or a third person has committed or is suspected of having committed, or intimidating or coercing him or a third person, or for any reason based on discrimination of any kind, when such pain or suffering is inflicted by or at the instigation of or with the consent or acquiescence of a public official or other person acting in an official capacity.
One of the crimes President Bush is facing prosecution for is the kidnapping, torture and rape of Dr. Aafia Siddiqui and the murder of her children, all done directly under the authority and perhaps even personal direction of the President of the United States.
Each State Party shall ensure that any statement which is established to have been made as a result of torture shall not be invoked as evidence in any proceedings, except against a person accused of torture as evidence that the statement was made.
The people of Pakistan have told their government, in no uncertain terms, that if Raymond Davis is returned without an agreement to repatriate Dr. Aafia Siddiqui, they will go the same way as Egypt.
There isn’t the remotest chance that Pakistan’s military would interfere in even the slightest way with such an endeavor.
