Another false narrative

I haven't written much lately, but have kept busy reading other people's great blogs and websites, and have kept up with the news.  There are a couple things I'd like to address in this post, which really go to the heart of why I began this blog.  I simply cannot stand aside and watch this utter ridiculousness happen around me without saying something.  And it seems to get a bit more ridiculous each day...

President Obama recently traveled to India as part of his Asian tour, and his first stop was Mumbai, where he commemorated the 2008 terrorist attacks in which 166 (or 163 according to the New York Times) people were killed.  It has been revealed in numerous publications that David Headley, an American who worked for the DEA as an informant and had ties to Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence Directorate, was the master-mind behind the terrorist attack.  We learn from the New York Times on March 26 of this year that Headley traveled "effortlessly between the United States, Pakistan, and India for nearly seven years, training at a militant camp in Pakistan on five occasions."  On October 16 of this year, the New York Times' headline read: U.S. Had Warnings on Plotter of Mumbai Attacks.  A brief excerpt: 
An examination of Mr. Headley's movements in the years before the bombing, based on interviews in Washington, Pakistan, India, and Morocco, shows that he had overlapping, even baffling, contacts among seemingly disparate groups-- Pakistani intelligence, terrorists, and American drug investigators.  
......
The Pakistani government has insisted that its spy agency, the Inter-Services Intelligence Directorate, a close partner of the C.I.A., did not know of the attack.  The United States says it has no evidence to counter this, though officials acknowledge that some current or retired ISI officers probably played some role. 
Pretty incredible, huh?  aangirfan has a couple great posts on Headley here and here.

When you take into account the C.I.A's long history of drug running, and their ties to terrorist groups, it all begins to make a lot more sense, especially if you do some critical thinking.  This is what these people do: stage terror attacks, transport and sell drugs to fund their illegal operations, and any other activity that perpetuates the world-wide war industry.

Getting back to President Obama.....

We learn from CNN.com that, shortly after President Obama's speech commemorating the terrorist attacks in Mumbai that were the result of a US agent, a $4.1 billion trade deal was negotiated that allowed the Indian air force to purchase 10 C-17 military transport planes.  No mention of Headley's role in the Mumbai attack.  No point in mentioning that minor detail.

I guess what I'm getting at is that this is just the latest example of yet another false narrative being created in order to justify and perpetuate the never ending War on Terror.  The people of the world are held hostage by a criminal cabal that commits outrageous crimes and terror attacks in order to justify more war.  President Obama flies to India to perpetuate this narrative, and then signs a deal to sell military equipment to India in an effort to confront and destroy terrorism.  And on and on it goes.....

UPDATE: Related to all this false-flag terrorism, a member of Parliament recently admitted that the British government and Bank of England fund terrorist groups.  At least the guy was honest for once!
