Who speaks for Al Qaeda?

Every government has the resources to create and maintain an enemy. The more nebulous the better. A nebulous enemy that looms large in the public imagination can be a cash cow, especially if it can be portrayed terrifyingly enough. The people will spare nothing defending against it.

Federal planners know this well. The ground rules were expressed in the famous pamphlet published a year prior to September 11, 2001 by the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), whose members are a roster of the present Bush administration.

PNAC declared that in order to create an American presence in the middle east, particularly Iraq, a new Pearl Harbor would be necessary. 9-11 provided the necessary catalyst to put PNAC's global war plan into effect.

On September 12, 2001, Donald Rumsfeld advocated invading Iraq. Congress immediately allocated $40 billion to fight terrorism. The U.S. defense budget for 2002 increased nearly 12 percent over 2001. The budget was increased exponentially in the years following, in line with the PNAC manifesto.

Al Qaeda is the perfect nebulous enemy. The irony is that television programming burgeons with forensic criminal investigation shows, yet the most important theatre requiring forensic investigation ~ terrorist bomb sites ~ waive forensic investigation because everyone believes the government's (and media's) assertions that Al Qaeda is the culprit.

"But Al Qaeda admitted to the London bombings." Okay, and how do we know it was Al Qaeda that admitted? Which impartial magistrate has cross-examined Al Qaeda? How would Al Qaeda go about proving the admissions were made by an impostor? Who speaks for Al Qaeda? How would such spokesman avoid being arrested upon identification and detained indefinitely, detained incommunicado?

Meanwhile, the people are obliged to receive statements of government and media spokesmen as gospel truth. What a moneymaker!

I've wondered the same thing - but haven't been able to articulate it. Thanks! It seems to be a matter of having a demon to chase, and having a nebulous demon means everlasting war, which means everlasting profits for bug business.

Sir,
The world of blog is lacking your insight. Your post demonstrates the peace of one who truly understands what is taking place before us. Would that there was more to come in the near future!
