Israel Controlling Phony Terror News?
By Gordon Duff | Veterans Today | Dec 31, 2009
Who says Al Qaeda takes credit for a bombing? Rita Katz. Who gets us bin
Laden tapes? Rita Katz. Who gets us prettymuch all information telling us
Muslims are bad? Rita Katz? Rita Katz is the Director of Site
Intelligence, primary source for intelligence used by news services,
Homeland Security, the FBI and CIA. What is her qualification? She served
in the Israeli Defense Force. She has a college degree and most
investigative journalists believe the Mossad “helps” her with her
information. We find no evidence of any qualification whatsoever of any
kind. A bartender has more intelligence gathering experience.
Nobody verifies her claims. SITE says Al Qaeda did it,
it hits the papers. SITE says Israel didn’t do it, that hits the papers
too. What does SITE really do? They check the internet for "information,"
almost invariably information that Israel wants reported and it is sold as
news, seen on American TV, reported in our papers and passed around the
internet almost as though it were actually true. Amazing.
Do we know if the information reported comes from a teenager in Seattle or
a terror cell in Jakarta? No, of course not, we don’t have a clue. Can you
imagine buying information on Islamic terrorism from an Israeli whose
father was executed as a spy by Arabs?
It is quite likely that everything you think you know about terror attacks
such as the one in Detroit or whether Osama bin Laden is alive or dead
comes from Rita Katz. Does she make it all up? We don’t know, nobody
knows, nobody checks, they simply buy it, print it, say it comes from Site
Intelligence and simply forget to tell us that this is, not only a highly
biased organization but also an extremely amateur one also.
Is any of this her fault, Ritas? No. She is herself, selling her work. The
blame is not Site Intelligence, it is the people who pass on the
information under misleading circumstances.
Imagine if a paper carried a story like this:
Reports that Al Qaeda was responsible for bombing the mosque and
train station were given to us by an Israeli woman who says she found it
on the internet.
This is fair. Everyone should be able to earn a living and information
that comes from Israel could be without bias but the chances aren’t very
good. In fact, any news organization, and most use this service, that
fails to indicate that the sources they use are "rumored" to be a foreign
intelligence service with a long history of lying beyond human measure, is
not to be taken seriously.
