Porkins Great Game ep. 4 Start of the Third Chechen War

In our first episode of 2015, Christoph and I look at the most recent attack in the Chechen capital of Grozny.  We focus on who may have been behind the hours-long gun battle that left nearly 30 people dead.  First we consider the support that neo-nazis in the Ukrainian  parliament have been lending to the Chechen militants, both in rhetoric and possibly in material support as well.  We also speak about the recent capture of a high-ranking Chechen terrorist trying to enter into Crimea from Ukraine.  We then move on to the role that Turkey is playing in protecting and using Chechen’s in Gladio B operations.  Christoph breaks down his recent article in Boiling Frogs Post which details several interesting Gladio operatives discovered in Turkey in recent months and years.  We talk about the recent capture of Ayman Al Zawahiri’s man in Libya, Abd al-Baset Azzouz, while he was staying in a resort town in Turkey.  Christoph explains Azzouz’s connections with the recently deceased Abu Anas Al-Liby, and how Azzouz worked for NATO during the overthrow of Gaddafi.  Christoph also examines the assassination of prominent Chechen Medet Onlu, and how this may have been the work of the Turkish government in an attempt to silence a critic of the “Jihadist highway to Syria” .  We end this segment by discussing a recent article by Brookings president Strobe Talbott, in which he predicts that 2015 will be the start of the Third Chechen War, and how a “prediction” by a deep-state actor like Tablott is really an announcement.
Our second story focuses on the demise of the much-lauded Russian-led natural gas pipeline known as South Stream.  We discuss how US and EU pressure on Eastern European nations led Russia to cancel construction of the pipeline into Europe, and to declare instead  that it will rote this gas to Turkey.  Christoph and I discuss how Turkey is gradually positioning itself to be a major energy broker in the world, and what this may mean, geo-politically speaking.
For our last story we move to Tajikistan and its security problem along the porous border they share with Afghanistan.  We discuss the recent kidnappings of Tajik border guards by the Taliban,  and how they underscore the massive security problem in Afghanistan.  Christoph explains why Tajikistan represents a more serious problem than neighboring Turkmenistan, and examines the Russian and Chinese responses to it.  Christoph also talks about plans to create a “Greater Badakhstan” out of Tajik and Afghan territory right on China’s border.
We finish of the episode by taking a look at the start of the Boston Bombing trial.  We discuss the Tsarnaev family’s connections to the CIA, and how this trial may be part of a much larger narrative that has yet to play out.  Christoph and I also share our predictions for possible developments in Central Asia and the Caucasus region in 2015.

Boston Bombing still requires real investigation

Remember the Boston Marathon Bombing? It was that terrorist event which resulted in a massive manhunt, martial law in Boston, and lots more questions than answers. Well, the corporate media surely doesn’t want you to remember it. Hence their lack of investigative reporting on what really transpired that day and in the ensuing days. The Washington Post quietly penned an article today reporting on the clearing of an FBI agent who repeatedly shot (including execution style) the only person who may have been able to provide any information of the two alleged suspects. This time around the corporate rag has stuck to the story that Ibragim Todashev attacked the FBI agent with a metal pole, and not a katana, baseball bat, broom handle, or any of the other number of weapons he was alleged to have used against the two armed Feds. Aside from that, we have heard next to nothing from the corporate controlled media, aside from the official story. That official story being:
1) Two Chechen Americans planted bombs at the Marathon, for which there is no video evidence
2) eluded the powerful security state apparatus of America
3) killed an MIT police officer; seemingly for no reason
4) car jacked a person called “Danny” and confessed their crime to him
5) had a shoot-out and lobbed IED’s at police that resulted in the ringleader either being shot or run over, which allowed the other brother to somehow escape while the city of Boston was in military-style lockdown
6) culminated in yet another massive shoot out in which the remaining suspect was repeatedly shot, including in the throat, and with his diminishing strength somehow wrote a confession on the inside if the boat he was hiding in

Oh, and just an an aside
1) the brothers’ uncle was married to the daughter of notorious CIA agent Graham Fuller. While living in his house working for CIA front USAID in Central Asia he founded a “charity” that was later found out to be a front for Chechen terrorists.
2) one brother allegedly attended a CIA-connected Jamestown Foundation meeting
3) the other brother had an academic advisor who is not only former CIA, but also teaches the only college course on Chechen studies
4) and they were on several terror-watch lists

The alternative media by and large has not been of much help either. Rather than do the investigative work that needs to be done, they have instead fallen into the disinformation trap, that is, claims that  “it was all fake”– from crisis actors and fake blood, to the bizarre theory that there were no explosions. As my good friend Tom Secker has stated numerous times, the alt media is either lazy or incapable of doing real investigative reporting. By walking into this cul de sac the crime will never be solved and we in the alt media do a great disservice to everyone concerned with the finding  the truth.

Fortunately a few in the alt media have been attempting to investigate what happened in Boston. Principal among them is WhoWhatWhy.com, which has continued to do on-the-ground reporting on the bombing. Editor in chief Russ Baker recently wrote a two-part (part I, part II) article dissecting the major holes in the car-jacking scenario. As I mentioned above the whole official conspiracy theory hinges on an anonymous witness whose story simply does not hold up. I would urge everyone to read not only that, but all of their other pieces on the Boston Bombing. Guillermo Jimenez and Mad Cow Productions have also done some great reporting on the myriad connections between the security services and the Tsarnaev family. When I started the podcast for this website, I made it a point to have the first episode focus entirely on the bombing.

So why does this matter? The simple reason is that this is a crime. Crimes need to be solved. We cannot sit by and let the pressitutes regurgitate the company line. And furthermore, we in the alt media movement cannot simply lap up the most outlandish theories. If we allow this to happen then we let the power elite win and we allow them to control us. Buying into ridiculous theories shuts down the whole argument. Why look into Danny and his preposterous story if the bombing was all staged in advance? Something much larger and deeper happened on the morning of April 15, 2013. In the coming months there may not even be a trial. The defense may simply take a plea deal to spare the life of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Without a trial the secrets of what happened could very well die. That death will reverberate through our society. Many of us need to pull our heads out of the sand and start thinking critically. Boston set a very terrifying precedent in the sordid history of the American security state. This must be countered with hard facts. So please do some real research and question everything. The alt media has come a long way but I fear that it is falling into a black hole from which it may not be able to escape.

The clearing of the FBI, along with the state’s reliance on a sole anonymous witness who has changed his story three times, is part of the cover up. If the alt media drops the ball on this one we have no one to blame but ourselves.
