US-Indo-Israeli Axis

US-INDO Relations

By Sajjad Shaukat

During her latest visit to Pakistan on July 19 this year, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that the interrogation of David Headley, a Pakistani-American terror suspect linked to the Mumbai attacks, has thrown up a “revealing set of facts” that have been shared with Pakistani authorities. She further elaborated, “I don’t know the specifics (of the revelations made by Headley) but I know…Headley was “fully cooperative and he was willing to explain in great detail a lot of what he had done over the years.”

Ms. Clinton also revealed that Headley told Indian and American investigators that the Mumbai attacks were carried out by the Pakistan-based Lashker-e-Taiba. Clinton maintained that Headley and Faisal Shahzad…responsible for the botched car bomb attack in New York, were radicalised in the US but were “facilitated, directed and operationalised” from Pakistan.

However, in wake of her visit to Islamabad, the main aim to revive the case of David Headley by Hillary Clinton was to please India and to tarnish the image of Pakistan. Notably, we cannot see the Headley drama in isolation, it is part of conspiracy and blame game against Pakistan. In this respect, sometimes American and Indian high officials accuse Pakistan and its intelligence agencies with colse ties with the Afghan Taliban, sometimes they blame them for cross-border terrorism in Afghanistan and now they have linked Headley with them after his admission which itself is part of a plot against Pakistan.

David Coleman Headley 49, a US citizen, American-born Pakistani was accused by US federal authorities in Chicago, in complaints unsealed on October 27, 2009, of plotting against the employees of a newspaper in Copenhagen. Headley was accused of traveling to Denmark to scout the building of the Jyllands-Posten newspaper, and a nearby Synagogue for an attack by terrorists.

On December 8, 2009, the FBI additionally accused Headley of conspiring to bomb targets in Mumbai, providing material support to Lashkar-e-Taiba, a militant Pakistani group—besides aiding and abetting the murder of six US citizens in the 26/11 Mumbai attacks.

Headley pleaded guilty to all charges on March 18, 2010.  He faces life in prison and a three million dollar fine when he was sentenced.

Headley was also accused in the FBI complaints of reporting to Ilyas Kashmiri, militant commander associated with both Al Qaeda and Lashkar-e-Taiba. Kashmiri was alleged to be a former Pakistani military commando, but he denied this in an interview in October 2009. Headley made contact with al-Qaeda member when he made two trips to North Waziristan in FATA.

An Associated Press story allegdely reported on November 24, 2009 that five Pakistan army officers including a retired brigadier and two active lieutenant colonels had been detained for questioning in Pakistan. They had all been in telephone contact with Headley. But the next day, Pakistan military spokesman Athar Abbas rejected such a fabricated report.

Although American and Indian investigators have used David Headley in order to link him with Pakistan, yet his real connections are concerned with Indian secret agency RAW [ India’s most powerful intelligence agency] and American CIA.

As regards CIA, on 27 November 2009, under the caption: Is Headley an American agent who turned rogue?, The Times of India, while connecting David Headley with CIA pointed out, “It is a plot that could be straight out of the bluff-and-double-bluff worlds created by John le Carre and Frederick Forsyth. Only, it seems to have played out in real life to the tragic misfortune of hundreds of innocent people. The tantalising possibility that David Coleman Headley may have been a US undercover agent who turned rogue is vexing many here as American authorities keep the US-based Lashkar jihadi out of the reach of Indian investigators. The paper wrote that Headley was used to infiltrate the Lashkar…he may have continued to give information to his American handlers”. The Time also indicated, US agencies were perhaps aware that Headley was in India…during his interactions in India, Headley frequently introduced himself as a CIA agent.”

It is mentionable that The Newyork Times disclosed in a profile in 1998 that Headley was convicted of conspiring to smuggle heroin into US from Pakistan. It reported, “Court records show that after his arrest, he provided so much information about his own involvement with drug trafficking which stretched back more than a decade and about his Pakistani suppliers that he was sentenced to less than two years in jail and later went to Pakistan to conduct undercover surveillance operations for the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).”

Without any doubt, this proves that Headley had a deal with the American authorities which allowed him to get away with mild punishment in exchange for a promise of cooperation. It also means that he was a known entity to the counter-terror and drug enforcement authorities in the US.

It is of particular attention that in the beginning, Washington had refused to give Indian investigators access to David Headley as American CIA wanted to conceal some facts about him. But afterwards, access was allowed because the CIA had given temptation to Headley with the promise to release him.

Meanwhile, to a query on the perception in New Delhi that Washington was not cooperating with India on the Mumbai terror investigations, a US official refused to agree with the view and pointed out to the Headley case, saying: “the cooperation is exceptional” between the two countries on the Mumbai attacks and it would continue to make progress. He further explained, “your home minister P Chidambaram had a very successful visit to the US and as a result of that visit we are proceeding in a number of directions to expand our consultations on specific cooperation.”

The fact of the matter is that Mumbai terror attacks were collaboration between RAW, CIA and Hindu terrorists. While In this respect, David Headley was doing his assigned job in connection with that catastrophe. He had to infiltrate the RAW-trained fundamentalists and CIA-insturcted groups so as to promote attacks that could then be blamed on Pakistan. Besides, another major aim of those attack was to arrest the suspected Muslims in some western country and to distort the image of Pakistan in the western countries through a deliberate propaganda campaign.

Nontheless, David Headley who has now been used to implicate Pakistan by Hillary Clinton and other officials had, in fact, his real connections with Indian RAW and American CIA.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
