There were conflicting reports of the details. Police officials said shortly after the attack that the explosions were caused by two car bombs.
As we hear about the bombing of the Interior Ministry we may wonder why initial reports of a car bomb being the cause, later morphed once again into "Suicide Bombers". There were reportedly 9 checkpoints that had to be gone through in order to enter the area of the Interior Ministry. One possible explanation is that the bombs were set off by American Forces and made to look as though they were set off by infiltrating suicide bombers. American forces can presumably enter at will.
Why would Americans Blow up the Interior Ministry?
The Interior Ministry is the center of Anti -U.S. feeling among the newly elected Shiite government. It is from this center that Iranian influence can best be exported throughout Iraq. It is the interior ministry that controls the Militias and especially the 30,000 strong Iranian trained Badr Militia.
Clearly, a wide chasm exists between American Occupying forces and the government they have created in Iraq.
Responding to the Jan. 5 suicide bombing in Karbala that killed 60 Shi'ites and wounded 120, Abdul Aziz al-Hakim, the leader of the Supreme Council for Islamic Revolution in Iraq (SCIRI), which heads the ruling Shi'ite coalition, said, "We hold responsible Coalition forces, and political elements that have openly announced their support for terrorism, for the pure blood that has flowed."
The United States has recently uncovered torture centers run by the Interior Ministry. Since the United States engages in world wide torture as a matter of course, one can only conclude that the discovery of these torture centers is not a discovery but an attempt to discredit the Interior Ministry.
The new turn in U.S. policy came in mid-November, when the administration decided to confront Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari publicly over the torture houses being run by Shi'ite officials in the Ministry of Interior at various locations in Baghdad.
The decision was not the result of a new revelation, because the U.S military command and U.S. embassy had known about such torture houses for months, from reporting by U.S. military officers.
An undeclared war is now going on between U.S. and Iranian backed Interior Ministry forces.
Raw Story reported the following several months ago as have other outlets.
Yet Pakistani military sources revealed in February 2005 that the US has "resolved to arm small militias backed by US troops and entrenched in the population," consisting of "former members of the Ba'ath Party" - the same people already teamed up with Zarqawi's al-Qaeda network.
In a highly clandestine operation, the US procured "Pakistan-manufactured weapons, including rifles, rocket-propelled grenade launchers, ammunition, rockets and other light weaponry." A Pakistani military analyst noted that the "arms could not be destined for the Iraqi security forces because US arms would be given to them." Rather, the US is playing a double-game to "head off" the threat of a "Shi'ite clergy-driven religious movement" - in other words, to exacerbate the deterioration of security by penetrating, manipulating and arming the terrorist insurgency.
So, it is reported the U.S. is using Pakistani Arms to make it look as though the weapons used by selected insurgents are foreign. Undoubtedly the arms are used to kill American soldiers as well. The convoluted, and clearly mentally disturbed policies of the United States are such that the United States is supplying arms to kill it's own solidiers under the pretext of having a broader view of controlling the situation in Iraq. This is literally self destruction.
Zarqawi and the suicide bombers, in my view are largely a myth, promoted by the U.S. Now the U.S. is going to attack the newly elected government on the faux pretext of their abuse of the Sunni population. This is of course absurd. They are simply trying to make up for the mistake of invading Iraq and putting into power an Iranian influenced theocratic dictatorship that is diametrically opposed to the U.S. occupation and interests.
Sheikh Jawad al-Kalesi, the Shi'ite Imam of the al-Kadhimiyah mosque in Baghdad, told Le Monde: "I don't think that Abu Musab al-Zarqawi exists as such. He's simply an invention by the occupiers to divide the people."
Remember that several months ago British Operatives dressed as Iraqis were caught with a car full of bombs.
These secret agent Brits appeared to be either selling weapons to the insurgents or preparing to blow up something in the Shiite controlled south. It is not the first time they have engaged in perverse duplicitous actions. They have been exposed in Northern Ireland in killing their own people, for purposes of validating their agents who had infiltrated the IRA.
According to Detective Sergeant Nicholas Benwell, member of the Scotland Yard team that had been investigating the activities of an ultra-secret wing of British military intelligence, the Force Research Unit (FRU), the team found that "military intelligence was colluding with terrorists to help them kill so-called 'legitimate targets' such as active republicans... many of the victims of these government-backed hit squads were innocent civilians."
Benwell's revelations were corroborated in detail by British double agent Kevin Fulton, who was recruited to the FRU in 1981, when he began to infiltrate the ranks of IRA. In his role as a British FRU agent inside the IRA, he was told by his military intelligence handlers to "do anything" to win the confidence of the terrorist group.
"I mixed explosive and I helped develop new types of bombs," he told Scotland's Sunday Herald (6/23/02). "I moved weapons... if you ask me if the materials I handled killed anyone, then I will have to say that some of the things I helped develop did kill... my handlers knew everything I did. I was never told not to do something that was discussed. How can you pretend to be a terrorist and not act like one? You can't. You've got to do what they do... They did a lot of murders... I broke the law seven days a week and my handlers knew that. They knew that I was making bombs and giving them to other members of the IRA and they did nothing about it... The idea was that the only way to beat the enemy was to penetrate the enemy and be the enemy."
Most startlingly, Fulton said that his handlers told him his operations were "sanctioned right at the top... this goes the whole way to the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister knows what you are doing."
Intelligence agencies can be counted on throughout the world to be made up of the dumbest, most mediocre, mentally ill, provincial and backward people humanity can produce. At the same time they have the most sophisticated technology at their disposal provided to them by science. The public confuses the technology that science has provided these medieval minded automatons with "intelligence".
