WMR’s intelligence sources in Asia and Europe are reporting that the CIA contractor firm XE Services, formerly Blackwater, has been carrying out “false flag” terrorist attacks in Afghanistan, Somalia, the Sinkiang region of China, Pakistan, Iran, and Iraq, in some cases with the assistance of Israeli Mossad and Indian Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) personnel.
Fingers are being pointed at Blackwater/XE and Mossad operatives for the motorbike bomb in Tehran that killed Tehran University nuclear physicist Dr. Moussad Ali-Mohammadi.
On January 12, a bomb attached to a motorbike outside of Ali-Mohammadi’s house went off while the professor was leaving for work. The bomb, which instantly killed pro-reform Ali-Mohammadi, was remotely triggered by a team that was later linked to a U.S.-base group called the Iran Monarchy Association, which favors restoring the son of the late Shah, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi II, to Iran’s “Peacock Throne.” The Iran Monarchy Association is believed to be a CIA front organization.
There are also reports that Blackwater/XE personnel are in Somalia and have carried out terrorist bombings in Mogadishu that have been blamed by the United States and the puppet transitional government of Somalia on the Al-Shabab Islamic irregular forces as a pretext for a wider Blackwater role in the country.
Blackwater is also believed to be transiting between Somalia, the breakaway republic of Somaliland, and Yemen. WMR has learned of Blackwater counter-insurgency personnel working alongside Yemeni security forces in joint operations against Huthi rebels in the predominantly-Shi’a region of northern Yemen. U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Admiral Michael Mullen recently stated that there were no plans to station U.S. troops in Yemen but he studiously avoided mentioning a counter-insurgency role for U.S. private military contractors.
Blackwater maritime security personnel have also been active in the Gulf of Aden region against so-called Somali “pirates,” who are, in reality, Somali fishermen who are exacting tribute because of over-fishing of Somali waters by foreign fishing fleets and the dumping of toxic waste in Somali waters.
A number of terrorist bombings in Pakistan have been blamed by Pakistani Islamic leaders on Blackwater, Mossad, and RAW. Blackwater has been accused of hiring young Pakistanis in Peshawar to carry out false flag bombings that are later blamed on the Pakistani Taliban, also known as Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan. One such bombing took place during the Ashura procession in Karachi last month.
The terrorist attacks allegedly are carried out by a secret Blackwater-XE/CIA/Joint Special Operations Command forward operating base in Karachi. The XE Services component was formerly known as Blackwater Select, yet another subsidiary in a byzantine network of shell and linked companies run by Blackwater/Xe on behalf of the CIA and the Pentagon.
On December 3, 2009, the Pakistani newspaper Nawa-i-Waqt reported: “Vast land near the Tarbela dam has also been given to the Americans where they have established bases for their army and air forces. There, the Indian RAW [Research and Analysis Wing] and Israeli Mosad are working in collaboration with the CIA to carry out extremist activities in Pakistan.”
Blackwater/XE is also thought to be carrying out terrorist roadside bombings in Algeria, once the exclusive domain of the mercenary French Foreign Legion, to justify a greater American security presence in Algeria, ostensibly to protect natural gas pipelines in the country.
Blackwater/XE and agents of the Mossad and RAW are also reportedly active in sponsoring Islamist terrorist groups active in Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and the Xinjiang-Uighur Autonomous Region (XUAR) of China for a variety of reasons. For the United States, the operations are to ensure those nation’s support for the U.S. “counter-terrorism” operations in central Asia. For India, there is a desire to pin blame for support for Uighur and other central Asian Islamist guerrilla movements on Pakistan in order to drive a wedge between Beijing and Islamabad. For Israel, the support helps in continuing close security relationships between Tel Aviv and Beijing and the Muslim Central Asian “stans.”
RAW has also been smuggling radical Islamic literature to Uighurs in Xinjiang. All of the literaure has the imprimatur of Pakistan. RAW uses Indian consulates in Jalalabad and Kandahar in Afghanistan to help U.S. covert teams to carry out bombings that are blamed on the Taliban and Pakistani Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI) interlocutors. Blaackwater/XE personnel based in Quetta, the capital of Pakistan’s Baluchistan province, have also been active in supporting cross-border raids by an Iranian Baluchi terrorist group called Jundullah. Nawa-i Waqt also reported that two Baluchi separatist groups, the Baluch Liberation Front and the Baluch Liberation Army, “have their headquarters in London and Israel respectively.”
