The US In Bed With Terrorists
By Nico Varkevisser *

October 16, the Stratfor Website reported that Islamist
terrorists held a secret congress in NATO-controlled
summarize, Strafor reported that:
1) Russian and
Yugoslav intelligence sources claim that more than 150
Islamic radicals from more than 50 countries held a
secret congress in Travnik, Bosnia and Herzegovina, on
Oct. 8.. Stratfor adds that Strana.ru, a pro-government
Russian media source, also reported that the
meeting had taken place citing well-informed
2) The terrorists
supposedly put aside all differences in order to declare
a jihad on the European race -
meaning both Americans and Europeans - because it has
become the willing slaves of Jews and Israel.
3) Stratfor comments
that, The fact that the meeting purportedly was
held in Bosnia suggests the country may become a center
for international Islamic militants to coordinate
operations in Europe. This seems especially possible in
light of electoral victories by Bosnian Muslim
nationalists earlier this month. Muslim Bosnia, unlike
Republika Srpska, still is considered friendly to the
West and might become an easy locale for Islamist
operations as the United States focuses on hunting them
in other regions.
gives no sources that we can check for this report.
However, we do know that 1) the NATO-backed side in the
Bosnian war was fighting to set up an Islamic
fundamentalist state; that 2) other Islamic
fundamentalist governments were heavily involved in
helping their Bosnian comrades and 3) that the Pentagon
coordinated the work of these outside fundamentalists. (These
points are discussed further, below.) So the idea that
terrorists would find Bosnia a likely setting for a
meeting is perfectly plausible.
there are other reports that the meeting took place; it
is mentioned, for example, in an Oct. 11 dispatch from
Itar-Tass. Assuming the alleged meeting did take place,
Strafor has neglected some crucial points.
Strafor suggests that the Islamists held their meeting
without the knowledge of Western intelligence agencies.
But in fact Bosnia is the last place Islamist groups
would be able to get together *on the sly.*
we can hardly call Bosnia a country. It is merely an *area*
controlled by NATO in general and the US in particular.
At the top there is a Lord Protector under the disguised
title, Representative of the International
Community, who wields virtually all power. He
appoints ministers and makes laws; he even
chose the design of the national flag.
Nothing can happen without his approval. So when Stratfor
says that the country may become a center for
international Islamic militants to coordinate operations
in Europe, we can hardly believe such a thing would
be possible without the consent of the powers who control
if the meeting took place, it did so with Great Power
complicity. Which brings me to the second point: Islamic
fundamentalist terrorism is not simply a problem of some
isolated bands of extremists, dangerous only if they are
unknown to western security forces.
the one hand, Islamic fundamentalism is a real ideology (or
several closely related ideologies) with totalitarian
goals. It has many real adherents and it is trying to
remake the world. But on the other hand, it has grown
with a good deal of sponsorship from Islamic states,
North America and Europe.
If you believe that all the fears about Islam are simply propaganda to justify the war on terrorism, consider these words of the much-celebrated Bosnian leader, Alija Izetbegovic, portrayed in the Western media as a Muslim moderate:
favors Iranian-style fundamentalism, but the above
applies to the Wahhabi school exported from Saudi Arabia
and the Arab Emirates and other Islamists as well.
I am not speaking of personal religious beliefs. Islam
means submission and Islamic fundamentalism
regulates all aspects of life. Islamic law,
shariat, does *not* distinguish between crime and
sin. Or to put it differently, anything which the
religious authorities interpret to be a sin becomes a
is much evidence that Western states have played a double
game, sponsoring Islamic fundamentalism to crush secular
forces in order to destabilize target nations while at
the same time publicly condemning Islamic terror.
Stratfor cannot hide the fact that Islamic terrorists
have a safe heaven in Bosnia. Thus in the above-quoted
report, Strafor says, Since Sept. 11, 2001,
regional governments have rounded up several cells of
foreign Islamic militants. But Bosnia has not been among
those who succeeded in breaking those cells.
succeeded? Or *deliberately* not succeeded?
to Strafor this is an explanation, but to me it just
raises more questions.
do Orthodox Christian Serbs remain pariahs to
Washington and Western Europe?
there is no evidence of organized terrorism among the
Serbian population, whereas there are certainly hundreds
of terrorists living among Bosnian Muslims, *why* would
Serbs rather than Muslims command the main focus of
U.S. and European intelligence agencies?
of course these agencies wish to allow Islamist
terrorists to function unhindered in Bosnia, which NATO
Western powers are supporting Islamist terrorism was
suggested in an interview, given at the end of October,
by the former Czech Foreign Minister, Jiri Dientsbier. (Dientsbier
had also been a special UN Human Rights official in Bosnia.)
the interview with the Prague newspaper, Pravo,
Dientsbier said that
including the latest terrorist act in Moscow, did not
break out last September when the United States was under
attack, it started much earlier in Bosnia, Albania and
said further that, not only the media but also the
politicians, who divided the terrorists into good
ones and bad ones, were doing service
to terrorism. This is the case with the Chechens and the
Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) as well.
sources also reveal the close co-operation between the US-military
and Muslim terrorist groups. The Dutch Institute for War
Documentation (NIOD) wrote in its official report last
year on Srebrenica that the Pentagon in fact has armed
Muslim terrorists. This is what Richard J. Aldrich wrote
in The Guardian of April 22, 2002, in an article with the
title, US Sponsored Foreign Islamists In Bosnia:
[Start Excerpt From
US Sponsored Foreign Islamists in Bosnia]
The official Dutch inquiry into the 1995
Srebrenica massacre, released last week, contains one of
the most sensational reports on western intelligence ever
published. Officials have been staggered by its findings
and the Dutch government has resigned. One of its many
volumes is devoted to clandestine activities during the
Bosnian war of the early 1990s. For five years, Professor
Cees Wiebes of Amsterdam University has had unrestricted
access to Dutch intelligence files and has stalked the
corridors of secret service headquarters in western
capitals, as well as in Bosnia, asking questions.
His findings are set out in Intelligence
and the war in Bosnia, 1992-1995. It includes
remarkable material on covert operations, signals
interception, human agents and double-crossing by dozens
of agencies in one of dirtiest wars of the new world
disorder. Now we have the full story of the secret
alliance between the Pentagon and radical Islamist groups
from the Middle East designed to assist the Bosnian
Muslims - some of the same groups that the Pentagon is
now fighting in the war against terrorism.
By 1993 these groups, many supported by
Iran and Saudi Arabia, were anxious to help Bosnian
Muslims fighting in the former Yugoslavia and called in
their debts with the Americans. Bill Clinton and the
Pentagon were keen to be seen as creditworthy and repaid
in the form of an Iran-Contra style operation - in
flagrant violation of the UN security council arms
embargo against all combatants in the former Yugoslavia.
The result was a vast secret conduit of weapons
smuggling though Croatia. This was arranged by the
clandestine agencies of the US, Turkey and Iran, together
with a range of radical Islamist groups, including Afghan
mojahedin and the pro-Iranian Hizbullah. Wiebes reveals
that the British intelligence services obtained documents
early on in the Bosnian war proving that Iran was making
Arms purchased by Iran and Turkey with the
financial backing of Saudi Arabia made their way by night
from the Middle East. Initially aircraft from Iran Air
were used, but as the volume increased they were joined
by a mysterious fleet of black C-130 Hercules aircraft.
The report stresses that the US was very closely
involved in the airlift. Mojahedin fighters were
also flown in, but they were reserved as shock troops for
especially hazardous operations.
The volume of weapons flown into Croatia
was enormous, partly because of a steep Croatian transit
tax. Croatian forces creamed off between 20% and 50%
of the arms. The report stresses that this entire trade
was clearly illicit. The Croats themselves also obtained
massive quantities of illegal weapons from Germany,
Belgium and Argentina - again in contravention of the UN
arms embargo. The German secret services were fully aware
of the trade.
Rather than the CIA, the Pentagons own
secret service was the hidden force behind these
operations. The UN protection force, UNPROFOR, was
dependent on its troop-contributing nations for
intelligence, and above all on the sophisticated
monitoring capabilities of the US to police the arms
embargo. This gave the Pentagon the ability to manipulate
the embargo at will: ensuring that American Awacs
aircraft covered crucial areas and were able to turn a
blind eye to the frequent nightime comings and goings at
Weapons flown in during the spring of 1995 were
to turn up only a fortnight later in the besieged and
demilitarised enclave at Srebrenica. When these shipments
were noticed, Americans pressured UNPROFOR to rewrite
reports, and when Norwegian officials protested about the
flights, they were reportedly threatened into silence.
Iranian and Afghan veterans training
camps had also been identified in Bosnia. Later, in the
Dayton Accords of November 1995, the stipulation appeared
that all foreign forces be withdrawn. This was a
deliberate attempt to cleanse Bosnia of Iranian-run
training camps. The CIAs main opponents in Bosnia
were now the mojahedin fighters and their Iranian
trainers - whom the Pentagon had been helping to supply
Meanwhile, the secret services of Ukraine,
Greece and Israel were busy arming the Bosnian Serbs.
Mossad was especially active and concluded a deal with
the Bosnian Serbs at Pale involving a substantial supply
of artillery shells and mortar bombs. In return they
secured safe passage for the Jewish population out of the
besieged town of Sarajevo

The close relations between the US and the
Muslim terrorist groups is not limited to the Balkans. In
the eighties the US and Saudi Arabia sponsored them in
Afghanistan against the Soviet Union. Now the same
Mujahideen who fought the Russians are back in power
under direct US/European control; in other words,
Afghanistan is basically in the position of Bosnia.
as happened in Bosnia in October, a month earlier Muslim
groups from Central Asia held a meeting in US/NATO-controlled
centered in Bosnia, Muslims apparently organize under
NATOs nose to destabilize Europe and in Afghanistan
too they hold a unification congress to speed up
terrorist actions against Russia.
the farce that the US is fighting terrorism is the
reality that they use fascist and reactionary groups as
instruments to reshape the political map of the world.
