Al-Qaeda Is Fiction: The Organization Doesn't Exist
I came across three films produced by the BBC called "The Power of Nightmares" which explain how various groups use the fear of terrorism to advance their political power. I've spent all day converting them to a smaller format so that they can be ea silly downloaded. But they are an hour long each and are about 75 megs each. They are however extraordinary and it's quite an education into the history of Islamic Terrorism and American neo conservatives. Here are the links:
Sorry for the windows (WMV) format but it allowed me to shrink the video to 1/10 it's original size. I don't think there's a copyright issue but if there is I'll wait till someone screams about it. I think the BBC would want people to see these films.
In particular the third film makes a shocking revelation. The terrorist group al-Qaeda in fact does not exist. It was made up in January of 2001 in order to prosecute Osama bin Laden in his absence. In order to prosecute bin Laden there had to be an organization like the Mafia for which he was a part of. Under the law if such an organization exists then the head of the organization can be prosecuted under the law. So in order to bring the prosecution they made up the organization and called it al-Qaeda.
But the organization is fiction. It doesn't exist. It's all a huge fraud.
After 9-11 - a terrorist act that was organized by a bin Laden aide and funded by bin Laden - Bush dug up the name al-Qaeda from the prosecutors in the New York case against him. And since then we have been in a battle against a fictional enemy. The very people who made the story up now are believing their own lies.
What I first heard about this movie I too was skeptical. I thought, "Yeah right! al-Qaeda doesn't exist - sure!" But now that I watched it, and with the other two movies providing further background, I am sitting here in shock and awe. Keep in mind that this was made by the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) which is hardly some tin foil hat organization!
Here's the BBC Link that talks about the 3 films. I edited off the front part of the last two because it was identical to the first one and I wanted to save bandwidth.
If what this movie says is true then we shouldn't be able to find any al-Qaeda references in the news before the begining of 2001. So lets start hunting this up and find out where the name al-Qaeda first surfaced.
