Brow’s Theory on Al-Qaeda’s REAL Vow to Change the Face of History

It is received wisdom that intercepts by US Intelligence captured a vow by Al Qaeda to “change the face of history.” This resulted in US action to close embassies around the world as precaution.  The presumption was another Embassy Attack was coming, possibly many embassies at once on Barack Obama’s birthday.  Well, what if US Intelligence got it wrong.  A shocking possibility, I know. 

Imagine this scenario to see how incredibly wrong they might have been:

The act to change the face of history was a far bolder gambit than some run-of-the-mill embassy attacks.  That’s so Benghazi 2012 for Pete’s sake.  Instead, Al Qaeda’s bold act would be to employ chemical weapons in Syria.  That is, Al Qaeda would take chemical weapons smuggled out of Libya and use them against Syrian civilians in a “false flag” operation. 

The attack would transpire in such a very clever manner so the blame would be (naturally) pinned on Bashar Assad.  Western indignation would mount against Assad as a pariah and a war criminal who would gas his own people.  John Kerry would take the bait all hook, line and sinker.  Hell, Kerry sees this as HIS moment to change the face of history, does he not?

Ask yourself this question: why would Assad gas civilians instead of gassing the rebels’ military forces or strong points?  Why? Well, because he didn’t do it.  Al Qaeda did it.

This frame job on Assad would force the hand of a reluctant Obama.  Obama would have to enforce his “let me be clear” Red Line policy.  As Al Qaeda chuckles and stands aside to watch the show, a cruise missile and air assault of key Assad assets and command centers would ensue.

Cue the escalation scenario:

Jihadis retaliate against US and western European countries and interests across the region and even across the world.  Self-directed Sleeper Cells see this as the clear call to take action now.  Hezbollah unleashes missiles and terrorist attacks across the border into Israel.  Iran jumps into the fray even going so far as to attack Israel directly.  Israel would retaliate in self-defense.  A series of response and counter response actions would escalate the violence and expand the fight to greater and greater levels.

It wasn’t Bashar al-Assad who called Obama’s Red Line Bluff about WMDs.  Nope, it was Ayman al Zawahiri.  And somewhere right now he is smirking because he knows that with one simple chemical attack that he has changed the face of history forever.

If it’s not true at least it can make for a good screen play for Ben Affleck’s next movie…

“What’s the Matter with Karachi?” is new Thomas Frank Book

May 5, 2010 / Comments Off on “What’s the Matter with Karachi?” is new Thomas Frank Book

“These Pakistani citizen’s are living the American dream so why do they insist on voting Jihadi?,” asks Thomas Frank rhetorically in his new LibLogic Book release, “What’s The Matter With Karachi?

As Ezra Klein said on his WaPo blog, losing his house to foreclosure is what pushed Faisal Shazad into a Jihadi fury.  He learned how to self-loathe like any good progressive ‘merican citizen.

But enough opinion journalism, let’s get to some quality hard news reporting from one of the Dinosaur Media as CBS news reported on the story of the motivations of the Times Square Bomber with straight-faced journalistic panache  & integrity:

Faisal Shahzad’s Motive Shrouded in Mystery

Man who Admits Plot to Explode Bomb-Rigged SUV in Times Square Spent Decade in U.S. on Path to Respectability

(link: http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2010/05/05/national/main6462351.shtml?tag=cbsContent;cbsCarousel)

My sides hurt with credible laughter… But wait there’s more Pulitzer quality investigative work from CBS to report:

Sources tell CBS News there is no evidence Shahzad was part of a broader plot. But investigators are very interested in Shahzad’s recent stay in Pakistan – he was there for several months – and the FBI wants to find out who else he had contact with, reports CBS News Justice correspondent Bob Orr.

The juxtaposition of the first two sentences is Colbert-esque in it’s irony.  Of course, there is ABSOLUTELY no connection between the Times Square Bomb attempt and the recent stay in Pakistan.  None whatsoever.

At times like this I almost miss having Dan Rather to kick around…
