Kidnappings and assassinations

"Nine men are being held over an alleged terrorist plot to carry out an Iraqi-style kidnapping of a British Muslim soldier... It could have mirrored the kidnappings of the British hostages Ken Bigley and Margaret Hassan by Iraqi insurgents." Muslim soldier 'kidnap plot' foiled


In connection with the kidnapping of Margaret Hassan, Kurt Nimo wrote:

"More than a few of the kidnappings in Iraq appear to be CIA, military intelligence, or Mossad operations. For instance, when Simona Pari and Simona Torretta of the Italian humanitarian organization Bridge to Baghdad were kidnapped recently, witnesses described the kidnapping as 'extremely professional' and said a well-dressed man wearing a suit and tie had led the operation, according to the Guardian.... why are so many kidnappings directed against humanitarian organizations, obviously not the preferred target of a resistance determined to drive the United States out of Iraq? It simply does not make sense—unless the kidnappings and bombings are designed to foment chaos and portray the resistance as murderous nihilists and cold-blooded criminals."

Robert Fisk wrote: "When it percolated through to Fallujah and Ramadi that the mere act of kidnapping Hassan was close to heresy, the combined resistance groups of Fallujah - and the message genuinely came from them - demanded her release." Iraq peace activist abductions: Pentagon "black op"? World War 4 ...

The video of 'Hassan's execution' was suddenly produced at the time when the USA was being accused of genocide in Fallujah.

"During the morning of the 17th April 1984 an unarmed policewoman by the name of Yvonne Fletcher was gunned down in cold blood while on duty outside the Libyan People's Bureau in St. James Square, London. British accusations that the Libyan Government was responsible were incorrect. Yvonne Fletcher was assassinated on the direct orders of the American CIA in a coldly calculated 'Psyop' (Psychological Operation) designed to generate intense British hatred against Libya. The operation was a complete success. Two years later when the US used British air bases to launch a vicious bombing attack on Libyan civilians, only a handful of British voices were raised in protest." The 'Perfect' CIA Assassination
In the book 'The Committee - Political Assassination In Northern Ireland', Sean McPhilemy wrote:
"In 1991, I obtained evidence that the Royal Ulster Constabulary [RUC], the British Government's police force in Northern Ireland, was secretly running 'death squads.' Senior RUC officers were helping a then unknown terrorist organisation -- 'the Committee' - to assassinate Republicans, Nationalists and innocent Catholics in an effort to block any moves towards a united Ireland.
"These revelations were contained in a documentary, shown on British television, in which an anonymous member of this Committee testified publicly about the murder conspiracy. He admitted that his Committee, which was composed of fifty to sixty people drawn exclusively from the Ulster Protestant community, was using two professional assassins, known as "The Jackal" and "King Rat," to kill those deemed to be "enemies of Ulster." The two assassins, he said, were routinely guided to their targets by the police. And that, he boasted, was the reason why these murders would forever remain officially 'unsolved."'


"The Church Committee in 1975 uncovered many instances whereby the CIA had either planned an assassination, or backed one, doing away with such luminaries as president Patrice Lumumba, (Congo) president Salvador Allende (Chile) Che Guevara, president Rafael Trujillo, (Dominican Republic) and many attempts on president Fidel Castro. In the case of Lumumba, US President Eisenhower had ordered his assassination, but according to the CIA, Lumumba's domestic enemies got to him before the CIA's hit-men could kill him.
William Blum lists 42 successful and not-so-successful assassinations by the CIA and other US agencies in his outstanding expose Killing Hope: US Military and CIA Interventions Since World War II (Monroe, ME: Common Courage Press, 1995). In one US assassination attempt, on Sheik Mohammed Hussein Fadallah, a Lebanese Shiite leader, eighty people were killed."
