Popular UK newspaper reveals there is no Al-Qaeda

Peter Hitchens in the popular UK Mail on Sunday newspaper, 14 September 2008, writes that It's the creepy plotters who rule us we should really be scared of

The brave Hitchens writes:

"There is no such organisation as ‘Al Qaeda’.

"The spooks know this, Cabinet Ministers know this and so do the ‘security correspondents’ who so readily trot out the spooks’ point of view on our broadcasting networks...

"Some... call themselves ‘Al Qaeda’ these days because they have learned that this is a good way to scare us.

"But, while they are a menace, they are not as big or as organised a menace as the Government likes to make out.

"The State... needs to pretend that the terrorists are a...threat... to help... get hold of new powers to snoop on us and push us around.

"In the summer of 2006 ... ex-communist brute John Reid... reeled out a boastful, alarmist statement about some arrests of alleged terrorists...

"Two years later, a jury was unconvinced...

"Tame commentators were briefed to hint – baselessly – that the jury were stupid, inattentive or lazy, or even to blame the Americans for forcing our police to act before they were ready...

"The authorities were tailing the alleged plotters from April to August. They had filmed them, recorded their conversations, searched their homes. If a real attempt had been made by the alleged plotters to blow up any planes, the police would have been able to prevent it...

"What was wanted was a nice big propaganda success, after which we would face another call for detention without trial, compulsory identity cards, and all the rest of the 1984 rubbish this Government wishes to impose on us."

There is information that suggests that Abu Khabab joined Al Qaeda in the mid-nineties and became the network's third man, after Bin Laden and al Zawahiri.
