Who is to blame for the recent troubles in Bangladesh?

In late February 2009, border guards (BDR) mutinied at their HQ in Dhaka, killing about 140 army officers.

Are the CIA and Mossad trying to force Bangladesh to stay part of the alleged CIA-Mossad-ISI-al-Qaeda gang?

1. tells us about Sinister designs to portray Bangladesh as a “Failed state".

"Two of the TV channels and the largest publishing house in Kolkata, the AnandaBazar Publications Ltd. came out with a connection of the BDR attack with the latest Mumbai terrorist strikes.

"It believes that the planning had taken place from cells in Pakistan and transmitted to their sister organization in Bangladesh, mainly the Harkatul Jamia Islamia or HUJI with training cells conducted by ISI operatives.

(HUJI is believed to have links to Mossad - MOSSAD floats Islamist Political Party in Bangladesh - RAW (Indian Intelligence) aggrieved.)

"Many such speculations of an international link had been rife and the presence of a grey van laden with 20 crates of arms and clips in front of the BDR Durbar Hall is a growing testament to it.

"Some instigators who were supporting the rebels from outside Gate 3 and conducting processions until Thursday afternoon on Day 2 were also under the microscope.

"Who are these people? Where did they come from? Why weren’t the rebel soldiers shooting at them?"


2. The election of December 2008 resulted in a landslide victory for Sheikh Hasina's Awami League-led grand alliance,[3] which gained 263 out 300 seats.

Khaleda Zia's four-party alliance led by the Bangladesh Nationalist Party and the Islamist Jamaat-e-Islami Bangladesh received only 32 seats.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is the eldest of five children of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the founding father (and first president) of Bangladesh.

Someone may want to topple prime minister Hasina.

Some people suspect Mossad, the CIA, Pakistan Intelligence or Indian Intelligence could be involved in destabilising the Bangladesh government.

3. On 1 March 2009, The Times of India related that the Bangladesh mutineers have named a tycoon with Pakistan links.

"The preliminary interrogation of some of the rebels has thrown up the name of Salauddin Qadeer Chowdhury, a well-known shipping magnate and reportedly very close to the Pakistan military-intelligence complex and the opposition BNP.

"According to sources monitoring the situation, about one crore taka has already changed hands to help the mutiny along.

"Chowdhury, a close associate of opposition BNP leader Begum Khaleda Zia, was closely connected to the Chittagong arms drop case of April 2004 - the arms were apparently intended for ULFA. (militant group from Assam)

"The ships were caught carrying the arms.

"Salauddin Chowdhury, belonging to an old Chittagong family, has been close to Pakistan for decades...

"It is increasingly clear that the chief targets are the army chief Moeen Ahmed and prime minister Sheikh Hasina who, reports say, has been moved to an army guest house for her personal safety...

"Behind the mutiny is the war crimes tribunal that Sheikh Hasina promised to set up for the trial of Pakistani collaborators or razakars from the independence war. This had created trouble inside Bangladesh and Pakistan as well.

"In fact, Pakistan president Asif Ali Zardari sent an emissary to Sheikh Hasina, Pervez Ispahani, to persuade her to put off this trial as it could embarrass the Pak army considerably.

"After the dust has settled down, Sheikh Hasina and Ahmed are likely to launch a purge of their own in the army, which is likely to create its own tensions. In any case, it promises to keep Sheikh Hasina off balance for a while, as Bangladesh joins other tottering nations on India's periphery."

4. When there is terrorism in and around Bangladesh, some people blame the CIA or Mossad or Indian intelligence or Pakistan intelligence.

Reportedly, HuJi is an extremist Moslem organisation linked to the security services of certain countries.

Reportedly, in Bangladesh, Huji has set up a political party called the IDP.

At we read: MOSSAD floats Islamist Political Party in Bangladesh - RAW (Indian Intelligence) aggrieved.

1. One post quotes from The Daily Star, 29 September 2008:

"Leaders of the banned Islamist outfit Harkatul Jihad Al Islami (HuJi) Bangladesh have floated the Islamic Democratic Party (IDP) with permission from the government."

2. Kazi Azizul Huq is an adviser to the IDP.

Azizul said that:

Dr Richard L Benkin, an American citizen, and Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury, helped in efforts to portray the IDP in a positive light.

3. Reportedly, "HuJi was originally created by RAW (Indian security service) but now it appears that MOSSAD have hijacked the group and the Indians are annoyed."

4. Reportedly, "Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury & Dr Richard L Benkin are contributors to the Intelligence Summit which is Israeli financed.

"Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury was charged several years ago for sedition and working for a foreign intelligence agency (MOSSAD)."

5. Reportedly, "all the bomb explosions perpetrated by HuJi (B) in Bangladesh were carried out with Indian explosives (the grenades and water gel had Indian markings). Some of the other explosives were traced to a mining company in India."

5. Bangladesh became independent in 1971, having broken away from Pakistan.

In 1971, Pakistan was the chief ally of the CIA in the region.

CIA director Bush had wanted Pakistan to keep control of Bangladesh. (Cached)

6. Bangladesh's first president wanted Bangladesh to be socialist and secular.

The CIA does not like socialist governments; the CIA tends to promote Islamism.

Bangladesh's first president was Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, head of the Awami League.

He faced many difficulties including famine, corruption and opposition from Islamists and the CIA.

He was assassinated in 1975.

Reportedly, the CIA organised the assassination.[25] [26]

They have to spend about 40% of their tiny income on rice. (The Economist 17 April 2008 A different sort of emergency )

Rice yields are only half what they are in India.

9. From 2007 until 2009, there was a state of emergency, and the people who ran Bangladesh were the military.

The two main political parties are (1) Khaleda Zia's Bangladesh Nationalist Party and (2) Sheikh Hasina Wajed's Awami League.

In 2008, Islamists went on a rampage to protest against a draft law giving equal inheritance rights to men and women.

The government claims it might prosecute those who sided with the Pakistani army in the 1971 struggle for independence, when 3 million died.

A large number of leaders of Jamaat-e-Islami, Bangladesh's largest Islamist party, might stand trial, but Saudi Arabia objects to this.

Saudi Arabia helps keep Bangladesh afloat financially.

Pakistan and China versus Mossad, CIA, RAW and MI6

At Middle East Times, on 5 March 2009, SHAHID R. SIDDIQI writes about the Balkanization of Pakistan

According to Siddiqi:

"In his article 'Drawn and Quartered,' Selig Harrison of the Center of International Policy in Washington, predicted Pakistan's breakup into three sovereign entities along ethnic lines: Pashtunistan (comprising Pashtuns of NWFP and Afghanistan); Free Baluchistan (a federation comprising Sindh and Baluchistan); and Pakistan (comprising the "nuclear armed Punjabi rump state")....

Pakistan from

"Baluchistan also became a high priority target for India and the United States due to Pakistan General Pervez Musharraf's overtures toward China, seeking its strategic economic interests and presence in Baluchistan to marginalize mischief-making tribal chiefs.

"China's presence in Gawadar (in Pakistan) meant it would have access to the Indian Ocean, unacceptable both to Indians and Americans – the former perceiving this a threat to its upcoming Blue Water Navy and the latter upset with its proximity to the Straits of Hormuz.

"General Aslam Beg, Pakistan's former army chief, notes in an article that the Strategic Partnership Deal between India and the United States has led to the creation of a joint espionage network comprising the CIA, Israel's Mossad, Britain's MI6, India's Research and Analysis Wing, and others in Afghanistan engaged in destabilizing Pakistan and Iran, China, Russia and other Central Asian states.

"According to Beg, dissidents from the tribal belt are being trained at Sarobi and Kandahar for missions inside the North West Frontier Province, whereas bases at Lashkar Gah and Nawah are arming, training and financing the Baluchistan Liberation Army for insurgency inside Baluchistan.

"In the NWFP the insurgency by a new group called Pakistani Taliban, reportedly fighting a proxy war for India and the United States, is seriously undermining the security of the tribal belt and some settled areas of the province.

"Consequently, the Pakistan army is engaged on four fronts: fighting Afghan Taliban inside Pakistan's tribal belt, engaging Pakistani Taliban in the NWFP, fighting insurgents in Baluchistan, and facing Indians troops amassed along the Indo-Pakistan border in the wake of the Mumbai attacks - an extremely difficult situation for the army that is forced to stretch its limited resources.

"Michel Chossudovsky, director of the Center for Research on Globalization and author of 'America's War on Terrorism,' concurs with this assessment in his article, "The Destabilization of Pakistan."

"He states 'Washington's foreign policy course is to actively promote the political fragmentation and Balkanization of Pakistan as a nation.' He says: 'The U.S. course consists in fomenting social, ethnic and factional divisions and political fragmentation, including the territorial breakup of Pakistan.'"

The CIA in Malaysia and Indonesia; Hambali, Hasbi, Bashir, Samudra, Bali Bomb, 9 11


Reportedly, the CIA is active in Asia.

Allegedly it uses double agents and patsies in acts of terrorism.

Former Indonesian president, Abdurrahman Wahid was saying in 2005 of the Bali bombings:

"The orders to do this or that came from within our armed forces... There is not a single Islamic group ... that is not controlled by (Indonesian) intelligence."

Indonesia's intelligence services are said to work closely with the CIA.

1. History Commons (Complete 911 Timeline: Hambali) tells us about the Indonesian known as Hambali, who was said to be in charge of Southeast Asian operations for Osama bin Laden and the CIA.

Hambali is believed to have worked for the CIA in Afghanistan.

From 1991 to 2000 Hambali lived in the village of Sungei Manggis, close to Kuala Lumpur, in Malaysia.

Hambali’s landlord said of Hambali’s visitors, “Some looked ... white.”

Fauzi Hasbi

2. Living very near to Hambali, in Sungei Manggis, was Fauzi Hasbi, an agent of the Indonesian security services, who, reportedly, work closely with the CIA.

Hambali played a major role in the 1995 Bojinka plot, which is believed to have been an Operation-Northwoods-style CIA plot.

Operation Bojinka was a planned series of 'terrorist' attacks which was alleged to include the flying of a Cessna filled with explosives into CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia.

Operation Bojinka was abandoned after an apartment fire in Manila on January 6, 1995 led to the discovery by police of evidence of the plot.

After the Bojinka plot was 'foiled' Hambali continued to live safely in his Sungai Manggis house. (Time, 4/1/2002; Los Angeles Times, 9/1/2002) Complete 911 Timeline: Hambali

Bashir said the Bali Bomb attack was a conspiracy between "America, Australia and the Jews" and the three convicted bombers - Amrozi, Imam Samudra and Ali Ghufron - had been framed. (Cleric blames CIA for Bali bombing - ABC News (Australian ...)

3. Living near Hambali in this village were Imam Samudra (allegedly a key figure in the 2002 Bali bombings) and Abu Bakar Bashir, of Jemaah Islamiyah.

4. In January 2000, Hambali attended an al-Qaeda (CIA) summit in nearby Kuala Lumpur.

This summit discussed 9 11. [USA Today, 2/12/2002; CNN, 8/30/2002]

At the request of the CIA, the Malaysian Secret Service monitored the summit and then passed the information on to the US.

The CIA got pictures and video footage of Hambali at the meeting and already had pictures of him from a computer linked to the Bojinka plot.

In 2000, Fauzi Hasbi, Indonesian government agent, had a private meeting in his hotel with Bashir and the representative from Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), a militant group in the Philippines.

Indonesian intelligence had at least one other mole known by the alias Dadang.

A US Treasury press release in 2003 stated that:

“[Hambali] was videotaped in a January 2000 meeting in Malaysia with two of the September 11, 2001 hijackers of AA Flight 77 - Khalid Almihdhar and Nawaf Alhazmi.” [US Department of the Treasury, 1/24/2003 ]

However, there was no apparent effort to apprehend Hambali, extradite him, or even put him on a public wanted list. He continued to live in Sungai Manggis until at least late 2000. [Conboy, 2003] Complete 911 Timeline: Hambali

5. In 2000, Christmas Eve attacks in Indonesia comprised a series of 38 bombings in 11 cities and were directed against churches.

Nineteen people were killed and over a hundred injured. [Asia Times, 10/8/2004]

The al-Qaeda affiliate Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) was blamed.

In February 2001, the Indonesian newsweekly Tempo published a cover story suggesting links between the bombings and the Indonesian military, the TNI.

The article pointed out that Edi Sugiarto, who was quickly arrested and confessed to assembling 15 of the bombs used in the town of Medan, had long run a car repair shop in the province of Aceh.

Members of TNI and Indonesia’s special forces, Kopassus, regularly went to his shop for repairs and just to hang out.

Phone records indicated that Sugiarto called Fauzi Hasbi seven times before the bombings.

Hasbi is a leader of JI, but Tempo outed him as an Indonesian government mole.

In 2005, two years after Hasbi’s death, the Australian television program SBS Dateline provided additional evidence of Hasbi’s long-time links to the TNI (see 1979-February 22, 2003).

Fasbi also called Jacob Tanwijaya, a businessman well connected with the TNI, 35 times.

That businessman in turn talked on the phone to Lt. Col. Iwan Prilianto, a Kopassus special forces intelligence officer, over 70 times.

Fasbi made at least one call to another key figure in the bombings.

The International Crisis Group, an international think tank, later commented, “[I]t is hard to avoid the suspicion that someone in the armed forces must have known that at least the Medan part [of the bombings] was in the works…” [International Crisis Group, 12/11/2002]

Paul Wolfowitz was US ambassador to Indonesia (1986 to 1989). From 2001 to 2005, during the George W. Bush administration, Wolfowitz served as U.S. Deputy Secretary of Defense.

6. Jemaah Islamiyah (JI), the Southeast Asian Islamist group, was founded in 1992, and it is said to be linked to al Qaeda and to the US-trained Indonesian security services.

One of the founding members of JI was Indonesian government agent Fauzi Hasbi.

Hasbi helped arrange JI’s first major meeting, held in Bogor, Indonesia.

The Australian television program SBS Dateline will later comment: “The extraordinary story of Fauzi Hasbi raises many important questions about JI and the Indonesian authorities. Why didn’t they smash the terror group in its infancy?”

In 2005, Umar Abduh, an Indonesian Islamist who worked with Hasbi, claimed that in retrospect he realized that he and other militants were completely manipulated by the government. Complete 911 Timeline: Hambali

7. On 12 October 2002, bombs exploded near the Sari Club and the Padi Club in the heart of Kuta, in Bali. 202 people were killed and several hundred were injured.

On 16 October 2002 Indonesian police arrested a former Air Force officer who confessed to building the bomb.

This officer was later released.

According to a news story in the Sydney Morning Herald, 2 November 2002, the Indonesian security services may have handled the Bali bomb.

"Some time around the 30 October 2002, senior officers in the Indonesian military HQ gave a piece of information to a military attache from a Western embassy in Indonesia - the source of explosive used in the October 12 bombing in Bali was the head of the counter-terrorism unit with the army's special forces."

The father-in-law of the officer concerned is Hendropriyono, who was then Indonesia's spy chief.

(The Sydney Morning Herald story has been removed from its website.)

Adm. Thomas Fargo, Commander, U.S. Pacific Command, welcomes Abdullah Mahmud Hendropriyono, Chief of Indonesia’s National Intelligence Agency, during an office call at Camp Smith, Hawaii, in January 2003 to discuss counterterrorism cooperation and mutual security interests.

Allegedly, Kuwaiti citizen Omar Al-Faruq played a part in the Bali bomb plot.

Al-Faruq was arrested in Bogor on June 5, 2002 and handed over to the US authorities.

Former Indonesian State Intelligence Coordinating Board (BAKIN) chief A.C. Manulang was quoted by Tempo as saying that Al-Faruq was most likely a CIA-recruited agent.

Al Faruq

A Pentagon official in Washington has confirmed that al-Faruq escaped from a U.S. detention facility in Bagram, Afghanistan, on 10 July 2005.

The airline manifest of Garuda airlines shows that at least two generals from Jakarta visited Bali three days before the bombings and that they returned to Jakarta one day before the Sari Club was blown up.

This was confirmed by armed forces chief General Sutarto, who claimed that General Djaja Suparman was on vacation, while General Ryamizard Riyacudu, chief of staff, was said to have gone to Bali for health reasons.


General Suparman is allegedly one of the generals behind certain 'Moslem' militias.

He reportedly set up militias to counter student demonstrations in 1998.

One of these militias, Pram Swarkasa, allegedly became Laskar Jihad.

Bomb explosions in Indonesia have have often been linked to the military.

A bomb at the Attorney General's office in Jakarta in July 2000 went off one hour after Tommy Suharto had been interrogated by the police.

The bombs were reportedly traced back to the army and a former member of Suharto's guard.

A spate of explosions in the capital Jakarta in 2000 included a huge car-bomb blast in the underground parking lot of the Jakarta Stock Exchange.

Two members of Kopassus (army special forces) were convicted and jailed for that act of terrorism.

It was reported in the Jakarta Post that convicted Bali bomber Ali Imron had been seen, in 2004, having a Starbucks coffee in a plush Jakarta shopping mall in the company of top police official Brigadier General Gorries Mere. Imron apparently also visited the Hard Rock Cafe.

After Amrozi had been arrested for his part in the Bali Bomb, National Police chief General Da'i Bachtiar had a face to face meeting with him. Bachtiar laughed, shook hands and posed for photographs with Amrozi.

Most of the top Indonesian generals have been trained in the USA.
