In the 1971 film The French Connection, New York police detective “Popeye” Doyle (Gene Hackman) uncovers an underworld drug smuggling operation involving the importation of millions of dollars in heroin by a French cartel that planned to use a media personality as an unwitting front.
This week, we were shocked to learn that Onion-like French satire publication Charlie Hebdo had been attacked by terrorists, with Al Qaeda taking responsibility for the murder of twelve of the magazine’s staff and guests. While it is tempting to get bogged down in “fluid” situation details, we must always recall similar patterns of such events in the recent past which will serve to inform the greater context of this new event in the never-ending “war on terror.”
Naturally, the first historical reference that comes to mind is Gladio, the infamous NATO “stay behind” networks in Cold War Europe that utilized terror attacks and shootings in public venues (amongst other things) to later be blamed on leftist and socialist groups. Gladio thus represents the so-called “conservative” side of the dialectic running operations against the so-called left. The Aldo Moro incident in Italy, for example, involved a staged assassination of a socialist minister by a NATO-run Marxist front. NATO/Gladio operations have never ceased, as we see the same patterns at work in more recent false flags.
The French intelligence service, DGSE, works hand in hand with NATO and other western intelligence agencies, and over the past few years has assisted in the training of Al Qaeda offshoots in the attempt to topple Syria’s Bashar Assad. The “Free Syrian Army” has notoriously been armed and funded by Atlanticist power elites since 2012, when the CFR called for more use of Al Qaeda and the FSA, to 2013, when we saw Senator John McCain and others meeting with rebranded Al Qaeda leaders. As we look back on events associated with French and Euro terror, the images converge.
In 1995, Rachid Ramda, a member of radical Islamic organizations predictably titled “Islamic Salvation Front” and the “Armed Islamic Goup”, bombed the French RER subway, killing eight. According to an interview with Liberacion, Ramda described his past involvement with Western NGOs and Doctors Without Borders – both classic intelligence covers, casting doubt on the official narrative of Ramda as the typical fundamentalist stage prop of so many mainstream media terror tales. This event recalls the NGO affiliations of the so-called ISIS video victims, as well as Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
In 2004, we saw a similar media fiasco with the agitprop-style provocation from caricatures of Mohammed in Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh’s “Submission: Part I,” which led to van Gogh’s death in retaliation. A violent standoff ensued with a terror cell in The Hague. Then, from 2005-2010 we saw Danish papers create a soap-opera scandal with numerous mockeries of Mohammed in the Jyllands-Posten paper. We are also reminded of the dubious association of the film Innocence of Muslims to the Benghazi incident, curiously occurring on the anniversary of 9/11 in 2012. Former CIA operative Claire Lopez reported in October of 2012 several highly suspect details surrounding Benghazi suggesting a false flag, such as weapons transfers to Al Qaeda in Libya, as well as security for the facility being outsourced to Blue Mountain, a group with Muslim Brotherhood ties.
Yesterday’s attack bears striking resemblances to the Anders Breivik attack of 2011, which reportedly involved a “right wing” terrorist masterminding the Norway massacre. As is often the case, however, Breivik had numerous establishment ties to Western intelligence operations, and claimed to be a “Templar,” giving intimations of Masonic involvement. Breivik also comes to mind due to the curious connections of Francois Hollande with Grand Orient Masonry, a far leftist, socialist and atheistic version of Masonry existing in France from the time of the Jacobins and French Revolution. Various figures in Hollande’s coterie, such as Manuel Valls, are members of the Bilderberg Group.
Like the jihadists, Breivik also had a pre-produced “manifesto” that soon appeared online, leading to speculations about its remarkable plagiaristic elements from previous “lone nut” manifestos, such as MK ULTRA test subject “Unabomber” Ted Kaczynski. Breivik seems to be a “right wing” Euro-version of the radical Islamic terror patsy, while above these dupes are the intelligence agencies and secret societies, themselves subservient to international power elites like Bilderberg and the banks.
What begins to emerge is a consistent pattern of interlocking and interconnected security services at the level of “terror event,” as well as their assets – all to serve the same establishment perched on top. When we consider French intelligence, the fingerprints are no different, as DGSE has had a long history of false flags and dirty dealings along with their Western counterparts in NATO. France helped train the Al Qaeda-linked rebels along with US and British forces in Jordan, a longtime CIA puppet state. Arms and sand pirates are in steady supply for Western intelligence agencies needing distractions or desiring to ramp up the terror/security theater. France was also a player in the failed March 2014 Turkish false flag venture aimed at laying the blame once again on Syria and Assad, and by extension, further antagonizing Russia.
French intelligence also appears to have played a role in the Diana assassination, according to Gordon Thomas, who argues in Gideon’s Spies that driver/bodyguard Henri Paul was manipulated by Mossad to spy on Diana, but she would ultimately suffer her demise under questionable circumstances leading back to MI6 and the French services (Gideon’s Spies, pgs. 1-25). It is known that MI6 was “in town” and that SAS soldiers may have been the culprits.
Likewise, the Ottawa shooting of 2014 in Canada also bears numerous hallmarks of false flags, leading us to wonder – with so many shootings of late that seem to evince similar patterns, as details emerge from today’s incident at Charlie Hebdo, we will likely see the same connections manifesting. Let us also not forget the Toulouse siege of 2012 and synagogue killings that involved yet another known jihadist, Mohamed Merah. Merah was allowed to be quite active while sporting a pretty heavy rap sheet, much like the mad sheikh of Sydney.
Already, there are questionable elements of the purported videos being run on mainstream media, from the man on the top of the building wearing a bulletproof vest as the shooting occurs supposedly live on the streets, to the remarkable emptiness of these streets in broad daylight. There are also discrepancies in the other videos concerning the shooting and the ballistics of the bullets fired. As 21st Century Wire has noted, Charlie Hebdo itself appears to have published ahead of time what would occur, suggesting intelligence influence. The shooters also appear to have known details about the facility, what time the weekly meeting was, and how to enter the building, as well as speaking fluent French and demonstrating Western military training, which is odd for the “Yemeni Al Qaeda” cell the mainstream media have already hailed as the villains. On top of that, France had launched new terror drills, and in this regard, the familiar drill as a cover motif may be present.
Euro-terror, particularly events tangentially connected to France, bears all the same patterns of Atlanticist black operations that have been underway since the Cold War and Gladio. As new details emerge, a clearer picture can be painted about the siege, but we can expect all the same villains and cast of characters that come to play in the vaudeville variety show that is the global war on terror. The strategy of tension plan of the neocon establishment aims for a “clash of civilizations” between the postmodern “Judeo-Christian” nations and Islamic civilization – to destabilize and remake the Middle East on the long Fabian march to global technocratic government.
