And then apparently some Al Qaeda wannabes sent word to their handlers or whatever at the CIA, saying, "We've been your grunts since forever and, don't get us wrong, we really do appreciate all the training and weapons you've given us and the chance to behead women and children left and right. Don't get us wrong, Consigliere. We are not ungrateful. But could you kinda maybe send a bit of a tidbit or bone or reward our way too? We too want more of the action. War in the Middle East just isn't enough. We're bored of shelling Mosul and Damascus. Can we PLEEZE go shoot up Paris as well? Just a little bit? Please?"
"Nah. We just want to shoot up Charlie Dodo. Those guys said really really obscene things about the Prophet. Not, of course, the same really really obscene things we say about the Prophet -- but definitely in the ballpark. http://www.alternet.org/world/jesuischarlie-no-im-really-not-charlie-hebdo-and-heres-why Charlie Dodo has made a mockery of the Prophet. Not as much of a mockery as we have -- but a mockery just the same." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/01/09/nasrallah-cartoons_n_6443530.html
"Done!" cried the handlers -- and then the paperwork began. And why not? This could definitely be in War Street's best interests and get everyone in France hating Muslims (even more than they do already). Just look how well 9-11 turned out for Islamophobics! "Plus it's always fun to stage a false-flag operation -- and you know how we love to kill journalists." It's a twofer. This could work! http://news.yahoo.com/brothers-past-draws-scrutiny-french-manhunt-enters-day-073049780.html
PS: I wrote this because I'm really and totally dubious about what actually happened at Charlie Hebdo the other day.
I've been to Iraq, North Korea, Afghanistan, Syria, Iran, Africa, Palestine, Dallas, etc. and I've seen with my own eyes what is actually going on in these places. But then I go back home to the States and read the MSM newspapers and watch the TV news -- and it's a whole different world they are describing, one filled with fantasies, wistful thinking, propaganda and lies.
I never believe anything I read in the MSM any more. So why should I suddenly start believing what they say about the bad guys who shot up the Charlie Hebdo offices in France?
