Killing Peace: The CIA Assassination of Hakimullah Mehsud
November 4, 2013
HAKIMULLAH MEHSUD, the 34-year old leader of the Taliban in Pakistan, was assassinated by a CIA drone the day before peace talks were to begin.
KILLER DRONE – Why is the U.S. using drones to wage its “War of Terror” in Pakistan? Is there really a valid strategic reason – or is it all just war profiteering and murder?
OBAMA ASSASSINATION POLICY IS ILLEGAL
Drone killings are acts of premeditated murder. Premeditated murder is a crime in all fifty states and under federal criminal law. These murders are also the textbook definition of assassination, which is murder by sudden or secret attack for political reasons. In 1976, U.S. President Gerald Ford issued Executive Order 11905, Section 5(g), which states: “No employee of the United States Government shall engage in, or conspire to engage in, political assassination.”

ONE WEEK EARLIER – The Prime Minister of Pakistan met with President Obama on October 23 and emphasized the need to stop drone attacks in Pakistan.

The position of the government of Pakistan is quite clear: It does not consent to the use of drones by the United States on its territory and it considers this to be a violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
– Ben Emmerson, U.N. special rapporteur on counterterrorism and human rights, March 2013
There is a strong feeling in Pakistan that every time there is a process of talks something like this happens…This has been extremely unhelpful.
– Tariq Azim, a spokesman for Nawaz Sharif, November 1, 2013
The government of Pakistan does not see this strike as a strike on an individual, but on the peace process. Americans said they support our efforts at peace. Is this support?
– Pakistan’s Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on the CIA assassination of Hakimullah Mehsud. The Pakistani minister said the U.S. targeted killing was responsible for “murder of peace in this area.”
The fraudulent “War on Terror,” which began on 9-11 with armed drone attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, continues unabated as a “War of Terror” under President Barack Obama. Twelve years after 9-11, we now have a criminal president who maintains a kill-list and uses armed drones to carry out illegal assassinations halfway around the world.
FLIGHT 175? The bright flashes that preceded the impact of both planes that struck the Twin Towers indicate that the planes were drone aircraft armed with missiles that were fired immediately before impact.
The white flash of the South Tower impact was captured by different cameras.
In the latest installment of the “War on Terror,” a mega-fraud upon which the Obama administration claims to have a legal basis to carry out assassinations, the CIA used its drones to kill a Taliban leader in Pakistan on November 1. What is particularly disturbing about the timing of this assassination is that it occurred on the eve of peace negotiations between the government of Pakistan and the Taliban. Why would the U.S. government sabotage the hopes for peace in Pakistan? I suppose this question can only be answered by the people behind Obama’s illegal policy of targeted killing.
The assassination of Hakimullah Mehsud, the 34-year old leader of the Taliban in Pakistan, with missiles fired from a CIA drone, brought the long-awaited peace talks to a screeching halt just before they were to begin.
Pakistan’s Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, said: “This is not just the killing of one person, it’s the death of all peace efforts.”
With the negotiations called off after the assassination of Hakimullah, Chaudhry Nisar issued a statement accusing the United States of carrying out “a conspiracy to sabotage the peace talks.
“Our efforts have been ambushed, and it was not an ambush from the front,” Nisar said.
The Taliban militants in Pakistan are ethnic Pashtuns, like the Taliban in Afghanistan. The Taliban in Pakistan demand that Pakistan stop supporting the U.S. war in Afghanistan, and that the Pakistani army withdraw its troops from the tribal areas that border with Afghanistan.
The U.S. assassination of Hakimullah Mehsud is strikingly similar to provocative Israeli actions that are taken whenever there is real movement toward peace negotiations between Palestinians and Israelis. The Israelis have, once again, resorted to their strategy of provocation as they seek a way to scuttle the negotiations with the Palestinians.
Likewise, now that the assassination of Hakimullah Mehsud has sabotaged the nascent peace negotiations between the Pakistani government and the Taliban, we can see that the U.S. government does not really want to achieve peace in Afghanistan or Pakistan. If the United States were truly serious about reaching a peaceful solution with the Taliban it would not have murdered its leader on the eve of peace talks.
There is no obvious and logical explanation why the United States is waging war against the Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan, but it is clearly part of the 9-11 deception. The war in Afghanistan is based on lies and unproven allegations that Osama Bin Laden and his band of 19 Arabs carried out 9-11. The evidence, however, indicates that advanced drone technology and nano-thermite were used to destroy the World Trade Center and attack the Pentagon.
The Israeli army was the first military to develop drone technology, which it had acquired from the United States, for the battlefield in the 1980s. Weaponized drone aircraft on 9-11 were evidently used to stage the false-flag terror attacks to deceive the American people into joining the Israeli fraud known as the “War on Terror,” promoted by Benjamin Netanyahu since the mid-1970s. Ehud Barak, the former Israeli defense minister and prime minister, was the first person to call for the United States to begin a “concrete War on Terror,” which he did on 9-11 from the London studio of the BBC World television — before the Twin Towers had even collapsed.
Ehud Barak was on BBC World TV on 9-11 blaming Osama Bin Laden and calling for a “War on Terror” – before the first tower was demolished.
President Obama’s proclivity to employ killer drones to assassinate people and wreak terror on the people of Afghanistan and Pakistan may be largely due to the fact that he is beholden to the Crown family of Chicago, a Zionist family of war profiteers with a long history of involvement with Israel and organized crime. The Crown family has a great deal of influence with the weapons contractor General Dynamics, where they control the board of directors. General Atomics, the privately-held company that makes the Predator drone, was formerly a division of General Dynamics.
GENERAL DYNAMICS’ ISRAELI CONNECTION
In 2004, under the leadership of the Crown family, General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems business unit in St. Petersburg, Florida, announced that it had created “a strategic alliance with Aeronautics Defense Systems, Ltd.,” an Israeli drone manufacturer. Aeronautics Defense Systems Ltd. developed the Unmanned Multi-Application System (UMASa) aerial surveillance tool which the Israeli military uses to “provide a real-time ‘bird’s eye view’ of the surveillance area to combatant commanders and airborne command posts.”
The product list of General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems contains a number of Israeli military products, such as Iron Fist, Samson, Bright Arrow, and Shock Absorber. The company’s webpages for these items indicate that they are being produced in conjunction with Israel Military Industries or Rafael (of Israel) and being sold through General Dynamics.
The final paragraph for each of these Israeli products reads something like this: “General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems and Israel Military Industries (IMI) are teamed to provide vehicle integration and production of Bright Arrow.“
BRIGHT ARROW is just one of many Israeli weapons systems sold by General Dynamics.
In this way Israeli weapons systems are being sold by General Dynamics, an American company. There appears to be a very deep and profitable relationship between General Dynamics and the Israeli military, a relationship that has greatly profited the Israelis and the Crown family as a result of the huge increases in U.S. defense spending that followed 9-11.
