The Oslo Killings And Anders Behring Breivik: The Ultimate False Flag?
The death toll in the Oslo terror attacks stands at 76, with at least 68 people reported dead so far from the shooting attack when a gunman opened fire at a summer camp on Utøya Island and 7 reported deaths from coordinated bomb blasts that took place in central Oslo near the government quarter in Regjeringskvartalet.
The killer at Utøyahas been identified as a Norwegian named Anders Behring Breivik, 32 who was charged over both attacks. According to the police, he surrendered when they approached him.
Given the sophisticated planning behind the attacks and the coordinated timing, a couple of my sources who are familiar with these matters tell me that this was almost certainly a group effort. I'd say it's virtually a certainty.
The suspect's lawyer said that Breivik admitted responsibility for the attacks, which he described as "atrocious" but "necessary".He also originally claimed he worked alone.
This man reportedly bought six tons of fertilizer and constructed sophisticated, remotely detonated explosives with them. These are not the kind of devices one can learn to construct on the Internet; hands on training or assistance in the bombings from people who've had that training is necessary. Where did Breivik receive it?
Because fertilizer bombs have been used before in some high profile terrorist bombings, most merchants in western countries would report a purchase that large from someone they didn't know to the authorities. Did they do so in this instance? And if they did, what did the authorities do with the information?
Most interesting is how Breivik is being tagged as a 'right wing, Christian fundamentalist' There are no such groups in Norway with any history of violence, nor does Breivik have any major, long-time connection with any of them.
The whole thing just appears too perfect, right down to the obvious manipulation of his Facebook page. His original Facebook page, in Norwegian, appeared only days before the killings, and paints a portrait of a moderate conservative whose heroes were Winston Churchill and Max Manus, the leader of the Norwegian anti-Nazi resistance in WW II.
Oddly enough, within minutes of his identity being made public, that page vanished and was replaced by a page in English with far more radical postings and the tag words 'Christian' and 'Conservative' inserted. That's what publications the New York Times and their political ilk are gleefully using to label Breivik as a 'far right, fundamentalist Christian'. The Facebook manipulation also proves that Breivik wasn't in this alone, It wasdone by someone else who had access to his account while he was in custody.
It's an obvious paper trail, constructed after the fact. And in Europe especially, there are a great many people happy to have a European 'Timothy McVeigh' to take the spotlight off of the far more prevalent and dangerous Islamist terrorism and provide them with an excuse to smear their political opponents.
Al-Qaeda, Hizb-al-Tahrir and the Muslim Brotherhood have all said a great deal in the post 9/11 environment about the desirability of recruiting what al-Qaeda's leader Ayman Zawahiri has termed 'white moors' - white, European Christians who have converted to Islam - to conduct terrorist operations.
This has actually happened before in Europe, and I noted at the time I thought we could expect more `white Muslims' to be a part of jihad. In America for instance, we have a number of American blacks who have been engaged in Islamist terrorist activities, and we also have al-Qaeda senior operative Adam Yehiye Gadahn, AKA Adam Pearlman, AKA `Azzam the American'.
Riddle me this, if you please - what if Anders Behring Breivik is a radicalized Norwegian Muslim who was groomed and trained to perform this mission, and is utilizing the Muslim doctrine of taqqiya which permits a Muslim to deceive non-believers to advance Islam? And what if he was then trained to pose as a 'far Right, Christian fundamentalist' to get authorities in Europe to take their eye off of Islamist groups and crack down on thus far non-violent anti-Jihadist groups? If you were planning an Islamist terrorist operation, can you think of a more likely or desirous scenario?
Especially since Breivik has now changed his story and is talking about being a member of a shadowy far right 'organization' with several cells?
I expect Breivik to go to court and mouth a great many of the expected far Right talking points. And perhaps that's really whom he is. But usually people this leave a long trail of statements, associations and activities, like white supremacist Buford O. Furrow, Jr., the man who shot up the North Valley Jewish Community Center in Granada Hills, California in 1999 with a semiautomatic weapon.
Breivik is obviously a disturbed fanatic. But I wonder if we're going to see a real investigation of who Anders Behring Breivik really is? Will we see an investigation of his travel record, his associations, his friends, any possible romantic relationships, his finances and business dealings if any? Have his phone records and e-mails been checked? Where did he learn to fire an automatic weapon? Why did the Islamist group "Helpers of the Global Jihad" post a message claiming credit and then suddenly withdraw it? Witnesses reported that at least on Utøya Island, there was a second shooter.Who was he?
These are all questions that need to be asked, and it remains to be seen if there will be a thorough and honest investigation to find the answers or if the 'far Right, Christian fundamentalist' narrative is going to be pushed regardless of whether it's true or not. There are a great many figures in the Leftist establishment who are only too eager to do so.
Which brings us to the ultimate issue, best summarized by the old Latin question, 'cui bono' - who benefits? Who gains from Anders Behring Breivik being painted as a member of a shadowy far right Christian terrorist organization?
Whoever it is, it certainly isn't Christians or conservatives.
But after the Narrative has made it's way through the usual channels, we will undoubtedly find out. And we may just find out that this was the ultimate False Flag operation.
UPDATE: * The death toll has now been revised to 76.
