Fake terror in Algeria; the US military in Algeria; oil in Algeria.

The United States is building a huge military surveillance base at Tamanrasset in Algeria.

US forces are training the Algerian military. Washington wants to provide Algiers with pilot-less drone planes.

This military base is a result of agreements signed between Washington and Algiers for oil industry development.

In addition, the United States has worked to include Algeria in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), and considers this North African country one of its most important allies outside of NATO.

'For the US, Morocco is important because of its relations with Israel, but Algeria is heading toward having better economic relations with Washington because of the Algerian oil reserve and natural resources.'


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

Well no, not exactly!

The 'Islamic terror' in Algeria is reportedly organised by the Algerian government which is close ally of the USA, UK and France.

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 the problems? Or is the terror organised by the government?

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. .


The GIA are the so-called Islamic terrorists. Reportedly the GIA are organised by the security services.,

"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."

Was the Ricin plot organised by the security services?

This is old history. We talking about a new era, a new president, a new approach. To keep your writing
truthful, which I believe it is, you need updating topic. State of affairs totally different today.
You'll be surprised to know that Algeria is neutral as with dealing with Hegelian dialectics, and for that is targeted today by the "Empire".
Thank you for your enduring strive for truth.
