Was the Ricin plot organised by the security services?

Kamel Bourgass was the only person convicted in the ‘ricin plot’.

The affair began with Algerian Muhammad Meguerba.

Meguerba was the person who first told the police there was a ricin plot.

Meguerba was the person who, according to Bourgass, had wanted to get hold of a recipe for ricin, to be used against terrorists who had been attacking villages back in Algeria.

Bourgass said in court: "I wrote it (the ricin recipe) in accordance with a request by this man Meguerba."

Meguerba was the person who led the police to Algerian Kamel Bourgass.

Meguerba was able to skip bail and return to his native Algeria.

Meguerba was a police informant, according to defence lawyers throughout the ricin trial.

Bourgass said he had been a police officer in Algeria.

Was the Ricin plot organised by the security services of a certain country?

The Algerian security services, who are said to be close to the CIA, are reported to have alerted the British police to the ricin plot.,12780,1459039,00.html



Ah! Algeria is where wicked Moslem extremists kill people and oppose democracy, isn't it?

Well no, not exactly!

Before 1991, Algeria had a 'corrupt and unpopular dictatorship'. In 1991 the Islamic Party known as FIS won a landslide in the country's first FREE multiparty elections.

Many moderate people had turned to the FIS because they were fed up with the corrupt regime which had held power for so long.

The USA was not happy about FIS; and the corrupt Algerian elite were not happy.

So the army took over.

Then the killings began.

More than 100,000 people have died.

But is it the Moslem extremists who are causing all the problems?

In February 2001, 'The Dirty War', by Habib Souaidia, a former Algerian army officer, was published.

It tells of the part played by the Algerian army in the killing of tens of thousands of Algerians.

Habib writes:

"I have seen colleagues burn alive a 15-year-old child.

"I have seen soldiers disguising themselves as terrorists and massacring civilians.

"I have seen colonels kill mere suspects in cold blood.

"I have seen officers torture fundamentalists to death...."


Robert Fisk in The Independent, January 1998, wrote about killings in certain villages in Algeria.

Many of the dead were women and children; some were burned alive; some were decapitated or disembowelled.

The villagers at Ouled Sahnine, Kherarba, El Abadel and Ouled Tayeb were Islamists and had voted in the 1991 elections for the Islamic Salvation Front (FIS) .

The killers used knives, wire and portable guillotines to butcher civilians.

Whole families were herded into 'killing rooms' to have their throats cut, with shovels as well as knives. .

Good blog, keep it coming, 'girls'...

Here's an article with some info on false-flag 'Islamist' terror in Algeria.,

"The details of French/Algerian collusion with the GIA are even more disturbing. It is not simply that Algerian death squads would impersonate the GIA and carry out massacres or create local militias – the so-called Patriotes – to do likewise. In recent years, firm evidence has begun to emerge from Algerian military sources and leading academics that the dreaded GIA has been – perhaps from the outset and certainly under Zitouni's bloody leadership – a dummy, or "screen" organisation managed by French/Algerian counter-intelligence.

Where was the terrorist threat in fact coming from, Le Monde asked rhetorically in November 2002, during its preview of a 90-minute Canal+ television documentary on the Metro bombings, and then cited the right-wing MP and former French counter-intelligence chief Alain Marsaud in reply. "State terrorism uses screen organisations," Marsaud said. "In this case [the GIA] a screen organisation in the hands of the Algerian security services … it was a screen to hold France hostage."

Two recent books by former Algerian military officers have given chapter and verse about the "turning" of the GIA. Last year, the feared Algerian general Khaled Nezzar sued one of the authors (Habib Souaida) in a Paris court for libel – and lost, largely due to compelling testimony by the star witness, the former Algerian colonel Mohammed Samraoui."
