During a military parade rehearsal this week, more than 90 people were killed after a bomber wearing an army uniform self-exploded amidst a group of soldiers at al-Sabin Square. The terrorist group al-Qaeda claimed the bombing, saying that one of their members carried out the attack.
Along with the estimated 90 killed, defense ministry officials said 222 people were injured in the attack. The al-Qaeda plant was present moments before Defense Minister Nasser Ahmed and the army’s chief-of-staff were scheduled to greet the troops. The majority of the dead were stationed from the Central Security Organization.
Yemen has been the stage for al-Qaeda’s attacks against the president Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, who recently took office. Hadi has declared war against al-Qaeda, saying it is a “religious duty’ of the state to do so.
US intelligence and military support have been covertly deployed to Yemen. The Obama administration’s terrorism advisor, John Brennan called the attack “cowardly”.
While the violence in Yemen escalates, President Obama took the time to release a new executive order (EO) called Blocking Property of Persons Threatening the Peace, Security, or Stability of Yemen.
In this EO, Obama claims the right to confiscate “all property and interests in property that are in the United States, that hereafter come within the United States, or that are or hereafter come within the possession or control of any United States person, including any foreign branch, of the following persons are blocked and may not be transferred, paid, exported, withdrawn, or otherwise dealt in: any person determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State.”
If any person, including US citizens, is accused of assisting a terrorist group of threatening “Yemen’s peace, security, and stability” they will find their possessions and bank accounts confiscated by the US government; as well as being arrested and detained by federal agencies.
Last month, Obama announced that the war on terror is over, claiming that we are in a “post al-Qaeda era”.
Obama admitted that his new foreign policy would allow that “we have killed most of al-Qaeda, now that people have come to see legitimate means of expression, people who once might have gone into al-Qaeda see an opportunity for a legitimate Islamism.”
However, as Hillary Clinton pointed out, al-Qaeda was a CIA creation trained by the US government and released into strategic countries for the purpose of destabilizing their governments, therefore making the task of usurping control easier for the US government.
According to investigative reporter Seymour Hersch, the Bush administration, in conjunction with Saudi Arabia, was covertly funding radical Suni groups with ties to al-Qaeda to counter Shiite groups backed by Iran. In a game of fake terrorist groups planted into a country to agitate the governments in place this method appears to be common.
Along with the al-Qaeda invention, Osama bin Laden was trained by the CIA and worked for them as an operative. In 2008, Milt Bearden told Dan Rather that the “myth of Osama bin Laden” was created by the US government. At first bin Laden was a great warrior when he worked with the CIA against the Russians in Afghanistan, then he became the go-to bogeyman leader of an “extremist terrorist group called al-Qaeda”.
Clark contends that al-Qaeda was created for Saudi Arabia to bankroll Osama bin Laden, through the House of Saud, “in the Afghan war against the Soviet Union during the 1980s and Riyadh and Washington together contributed an estimated $3.5 billion to the mujahideen.”
The terrorism Yemen is experiencing is obviously controlled by the US government and the Obama administration.
Within US borders, Obama has declared that “any United States citizen, permanent resident alien, entity organized under the laws of the United States or any jurisdiction within the United States (including foreign branches), or any person in the United States” that is suspected of aiding terrorist groups (that the US government has planted in Yemen) will be “obstructing the political process in Yemen”.
The situation in Yemen that has been created by CIA-funded al-Qaeda is being used to declare Yemen “an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy” and the president has “declared a national emergency to deal with that threat”.
By funding the terrorism, the US government, under Obama’s direction is endeavoring to not only destabilize the Yemeni government, but also place American citizens under the threat of being accused of terrorist activities.
We are right back to where we were when the Bush administration used the false flag threat of al-Qaeda terrorism to not only terrify the American public, but justify the arrest and detainment of US citizens.
