UK Labour Leader Corbyn: 9/11 Attacks ‘Manipulated’ for War, 1990 Iraq War for New World Order
Jeremy Corbyn, newly elected leader of the UK’s Labour Party, is under scrutiny for claims made in 2003 that the United States government manipulated the investigation of the September 11 attacks. Corbyn, like many other critics, wrote in a 2003 Morning Star article that the 9/11 attacks were immediately blamed on Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda to set up a strategy of planned warfare in Afghanistan which also led to the 2003 Iraq war to oust Saddam Hussein.
In the 2003 article for The Morning Star newspaper, Mr Corbyn wrote: “Historians will study with interest the news manipulation of the past 18 months.
“After September 11, the claims that bin Laden and al-Qaida had committed the atrocity were quickly and loudly made.
“This was turned into an attack on the Taliban and then, subtly, into regime change in Afghanistan.”
While Jeremy Corbyn’s platform is popular with many voters, he is considered too radical by others supporting the Labour party. Corbyn has also come under criticism from members within the Labour party that his leadership will make the party less likely to win in the coming elections.
Corbyn is now being criticized for referring to the 1990 Iraq war as strategic part of the New World Order, with British newspapers now calling him a conspiracy theorist. The Telegraph is also reporting that Corbyn specifically points then US President George Bush as a member of the New World Order. It is suggested that the Bush family is heavily involved as elder George H.W. Bush was the director of the Central Intelligence Agency and his father Prescott Bush is linked to US war profiteering which aided Nazi Germany during World War 2.
In an article for “Labour Briefing” in 1991, Mr Corbyn wrote: “We now know that the Gulf War was a curtain-raiser for the New World Order: the rich and powerful, white and western will be able to maintain the present economic order with free use of all the weapons they wish for.”
That same year, he said in Socialist Campaign Group News: “The aim of the war machine of the United States is to maintain a world order dominated by the banks and multinational companies of Europe and North America.”
The following year, in a piece for Labour Peace Action, Mr Corbyn said: “What is required now is a bold, democratic alternative to the New World Order. The US veto at the Earth summit in Rio…shows just who calls the shots in this New World Order and who will be asked to foot the bill.”
Mr Corbyn has previously shared a platform with Ken O’Keefe, who has alleged that President Bush was a member of The New World Order who had orchestrated the September 11 attacks for personal gain.
Corbyn also noted that reported death of Osama Bin Laden was a “tragedy” noting that he should have faced trial after the 2012 special forces raid on a Pakistan compound.
In a clip from the Press TV show The Agenda, Mr Corbyn is heard complaining that there had been “no attempt whatsoever that I can see to arrest him and put him on trial, to go through that process”. He went on: “This was an assassination attempt, and is yet another tragedy, upon a tragedy, upon a tragedy.
“The World Trade Center was a tragedy, the attack on Afghanistan was a tragedy, the war in Iraq was a tragedy. Tens of thousands of people have died. Torture has come back on to the world stage, been canonised virtually into law by Guantanamo and Bagram.
“Can’t we learn some lessons from this? Are we just going to sink deeper and deeper? The next stage will be an attempted assassination on Gaddafi and so it will go on. This will just make the world more dangerous and worse and worse and worse.”
A spokesman for Mr Corbyn said he was “a total opponent of Al-Qaeda, all it stands for”.
