When the Obama administration mentioned an off-shoot of Al Qaeda, labeled the Khorasan Group, my first, second and subsequent responses were the Khora-who?
Even more suspicious was the urgency of Obama and his minions this past week to hold numerous press conferences on the subject of the so-called Al Qaeda offshoot.
Well cat out of the bag, America, chalk it up to “rapid, iterative experimentation.”
[Keywords: “iterative experimentation” and “Test, Learn, Adapt” “iterative” meaning repetition.] That, however, is another post. (See my July 13, 2013 post entitled, “White House creates NUDGE SQUAD to shape behavior of Americans.”)
If you repeat a lie often enough, the people will begin to believe it; but before you drink the kool-aid; be advised that the Khorasan Group is a lie, an Obama deception, the purpose of which is to save face; Barack Obama’s to be exact. Even more nefarious, it is justification for war airstrikes in Syria that will lead to the takedown of Bashar Assad.
You may recall that during the 2012 presidential campaign and beyond Obama’s rallying cry was “Al Qaeda is on the run” and “Al Qaeda has been decimated.” Again, not true.
Just last week, Europe European counter-terrorism specialists reported that the United States never once mentioned the Khorasan Group nor were they informed of the plan to take the group down. Why? Because no such entity exists.
As reported by Barack Obama, himself, the sites hit last week belonged to the Khorasan Group.
The installations hit last week that the snake oil salesman and pathological liar claimed belonged to the Khorasan Group actually belonged to the Al Nusrah Front “an al-Qaida affiliate that anti-government rebel groups consider an important ally in their fight to topple the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad.”
It’s a fictitious name the Obama administration invented to deceive us.
You haven’t heard of the Khorosan Group because there isn’t one. It is a name the administration came up with, calculating that Khorosan — the –Iranian–Afghan border region — had sufficient connection to jihadist lore that no one would call the president on it.
The ‘Khorosan Group’ is al-Qaeda. It is simply a faction within the global terror network’s Syrian franchise, ‘Jabhat al-Nusra.’ Its leader, Mushin al-Fadhli (believed to have been killed in this week’s U.S.-led air strikes), was an intimate of Ayman al-Zawahiri, the emir of al-Qaeda who dispatched him to the jihad in Syria….’
And in the event, one thinks that this is a right wing conspiracy, think again.
So how you may ask did Barack Obama pull of his latest deception? The mainstream media as always was onboard.
As the Obama Administration prepared to bomb Syria without congressional or U.N. authorization, it faced two problems. The first was the difficulty of sustaining public support for a new years-long war against ISIS, a group that clearly posed no imminent threat to the “homeland.” A second was the lack of legal justification for launching a new bombing campaign with no viable claim of self-defense or U.N. approval.
The solution to both problems was found in the wholesale concoction of a brand new terror threat that was branded “The Khorasan Group.” After spending weeks depicting ISIS as an unprecedented threat — too radical even for Al Qaeda! — administration officials suddenly began spoon-feeding their favorite media organizations and national security journalists tales of a secret group that was even scarier and more threatening than ISIS, one that posed a direct and immediate threat to the American Homeland. Seemingly out of nowhere, a new terror group was created in media lore….
