Murder, Inc: Official US Policy
by Stephen Lendman
America does it wholesale and retail. Obama's wars increase body counts. They mount daily. Special forces death squads in over 120 countries add their own.
So do covert CIA agents. They're licensed to kill. They do it globally. FBI assassins operate domestically. Doing so belies their "Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity" motto.
They don't prevent crimes. They aid and abet them. They commit them. They're political police. They subvert democratic values. They menace freedom. They're agents of repression.
They support wealth, power and privilege. They're state-sponsored terrorists. They kill with impunity. They were involved in the Boston Marathon bombings. The official story doesn't wash.
They and/or police killed Tamerlan Tsarnaev. He and his brother Dzhokhar were set up. They were convenient patsies. An image showed Tamerlan trying to surrender.
He was lying prone with his arms outstretched. He held no weapon. None was near him. No blood was visible. He was murdered in cold blood. His body was riddled with bullets from head to toe.
Brother Dzhokhar perhaps also tried to surrender. Local and/or federal assassins tried to kill him. He was shot multiple times. A throat wound prevented him from speaking.
He can now. On May 29, he called his mother in Dagastan. They had an emotional six-minute conversation. His wounds are healing. He can walk. He said he and dead brother Tamerlan are innocent.
Police, FBI, other federal agencies, and complicit operatives bear full responsibility for the Boston incident.
Ibragim Todashev knew both brothers. FBI agents interrogated him. They did so in Orlando, FL. He lived in Boston before moving there. They accused him of involvement in three September 11, 2011 Waltham, MA killings.
They said he implicated himself and Tsarnaev. They did so with no corroborating evidence. It's standard FBI practice. It gets worse.
They implausibly claimed he attacked an FBI interrogator with a knife. No explanation why was given. He was shot and killed. Most official stories don't wash.
This one has a distinct aroma. It doesn't rise to the level of bad fiction. No respectable screenwriter would propose it. Todashev was murdered to silence him. Dead men tell no tales.
Khusen Taramov knew Todashev. FBI agents questioned him. Doing so was to build a stronger case against his friend and/or implicate himself. Taramov said Todashev feared for his life.
"He felt inside he was going to get shot." "I have a really bad feeling," he said. He had good reason for concern. "Should something happen to me, call my parents," he added.
Taramov said he refused to come in for questioning. He asked FBI agents to do so at home.
The official story unraveled in plain sight. At a Moscow press conference, his father, Abdulbaki, accused FBI agents of killing his son "execution-style."
"I can show you the photos taken after the killing of my son. I have 16 photographs," he said. Friends took them after the FBI released the body.
"I just would like to say that looking at these photos is like being in a movie."
"I only saw things like that in movies: shooting a person, and then the kill shot. Six shots in the body, one of them in the head."
"I want justice and I want an investigation to be carried out. I want these people to be put on trial in accordance with US law. They are not FBI officers. They are bandits. I cannot call them otherwise. They must be put on trial."
"They tortured (him) for eight hours with no attorney, no witnesses, nobody. We can only guess what was going on there until there is an official investigation."
He added that his son believed the Boston bombings were a "set-up." He had no involvement. He knew Tamerlan casually. They "went boxing at the same gym (and) exchanged phone numbers."
Todashev called claims that Ibragim was shot to foil his attack "absurd. Maybe my son knew something, some information the police did not want to be made public. Maybe they wanted to silence my son."
"They killed my son and then they made up a reason to explain it."
Florida's Council on American-Islamic Relations executive director Hassan Shibley said Todashev's family and friends met with lawyers. On Friday, they submitted a formal request for a federal investigation into the killing.
According to Shibley:
"We're not accusing anybody of anything, but we do want to know how an unarmed man who had not been charged or convicted of anything was shot seven times, once in the head, and killed."
His group has a source close to the FBI investigation. It's confirmed. Todashev was unarmed. All but one agent left the room. The assassin alone remained.
On May 29, the Washington Post headlined "Officials: Man who knew Boston bombing suspect was unarmed when shot."
On Wednesday, "law enforcement officials said" so. The FBI story was sketchy and suspect. Few details were provided.
The original story changed. Other versions followed. A knife became nothing, then a table, a metal pole to a broomstick.
Fabricated stories sound this way. They're surreal. They're explained in slapdash, keystone cops fashion. They're worse than bad theater. They don't wash. They bald-faced lies.
One leads to others. This one had a short shelf life. Expect whitewash to follow. It's standard procedure.
FBI investigations take months, authorities claim. Doing so gets what happened out of headlines. State-sponsored murder goes out of sight and mind. It becomes another non-event.
FBI assassins do what they please. They're notorious. Insiders tell what they know. Dirty truths come out various ways.
CIA/DEA/FBI/organized crime ties are longstanding. Drugs trafficking, fraud, other financial schemes, murder and related malfeasance persist. Lies and coverup follow.
The Tsarnaev brothers and Todashev reflect numerous other high and low-profile incidents. Guilt by accusation is standard practice. Innocence is no defense.
Media scoundrels convict suspects automatically. They do so in the court of public opinion. They march in lockstep with official policy.
The ugly pattern repeats with disturbing regularity. A previous article discussed FBI responsibility for most US terror plots.
Post-9/11, George Bush declared war on terrorism. It continues under Obama. America needs enemies. When none exist, they're invented.
Muslims are America's target of choice. Numerous innocent victims are entrapped. Law enforcement officials or agents induce, influence, or provoke crimes that otherwise wouldn't be committed.
Evidence gets buried. Dead men tell no tales. Score another war on terrorism victory. Over-entertained, uninformed, dismissive Americans fall for the scheme every time.
The Big Lie works so why change things. Fear, misinformation and duplicity enlist public support. Humanity's never been less safe.
America's war on terror shows no mercy. Security is an illusion. So is freedom. Everyone's harmed. Full-blown tyranny looms.
