Memo To Corporate Media: Anyone Can Dress Up As An Arab Terrorist & Fake An Al-Qaeda Tape

America's press whores gear up for another summer of fearmongering with dubious "Al-Qaeda fan" WMD video

Nearly four years after Benjamin Vanderford hoodwinked the global media by manufacturing a fake Al-Qaeda beheading tape, America's corporate press whores are once again gearing up to fearmonger about the prospect of mushroom clouds over American cities by instantly ascribing gospel status to a dubious "Al-Qaeda fan" Internet videotape that encourages the use of WMD in a terrorist attack.

"Intelligence and law enforcement sources tell ABC News they are expecting al Qaeda supporters will post a new video on the Internet in the next 24 hours, calling for what one source said is "jihadists to use biological, chemical and nuclear weapons to attack the West," according to the report.

"There have been several reports that al Qaeda will release a new message calling for the use of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) against civilians," FBI spokesman Richard Kolko told ABC News in an e-mail.

Since the dubious series of beheading videos, which coincidentally came to a stop when one of our readers managed to expose the ludicrousness of accepting such propaganda at face value by hoodwinking the world media with a fake beheading tape, "Al-Qaeda" has been resigned to spreading its message through Mossad agents like Adam Pearlman and alleged sketchy Bin Laden audio recordings.

It was back in August 2004 that 22-year-old aspiring video game designer Benjamin Vanderford posted a 55 second clip on the Internet filmed at his friend's house which depicted himself being crudely beheaded while fake blood spurted for visual effect. Vanderford's buddy dressed up like the infamous Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, barked out a template terrorist screed, and the press bought it hook, line and sinker.

The corporate media lapped up the phony tape and within hours of it being uploaded serious analysts on Fox News were citing the footage as further evidence to prove we were in a war against bloodthirsty terrorists.

Vanderford said he made the tape "to just make a statement on these type of videos and how easily they can be faked."

Vanderford single-handedly proved that anyone in the world can dress up as an Arab terrorist, fake a beheading scene or a speech, upload it to the Internet, and have the global media obsessing about the deadly threat of Al-Qaeda within hours.

Benjamin Vanderford's "Abu Musab al-Zarqawi Slaughters an American" hoax was accepted at face value by a feverish corporate media who instantly afforded credence to the fraud.

The latest "Al-Qaeda WMD" sideshow is no different. This could have been made by the tooth fairy for all the corporate media cares. It fills up the headlines, it attracts viewers and it pleases their military-industrial complex sponsors who make a killing out of artificially inflating the scope of the phantom war on terror for increased weapons sales and fighter jets.

The lesson that the Internet is an anonymous free-for-all medium has still not been learned four years later as the media seizes upon the latest offering which provides them with an ample opportunity to fearmonger about biological attacks turning American cities into quarantine camps this summer.

One wonders if the new tape will feature original rhetoric or whether it will just be lifted almost entirely from a satirical spoof website, as was the case with the previous "Al-Qaeda tape".

You know it's bad when even IntelCenter, the Pentagon front group that routinely releases fake "Al-Qaeda" propaganda videos of Bin Laden speeches cobbled together from 5-year-old footage, is denouncing the new tape as inconsequential.

"Supporter videos are made by fans or supporters who may not have ever had any contact with a real terrorist," IntelCenter's CEO Ben Venzke told ABC News. "These videos almost always are comprised of old video footage that is edited together to make a new video." (Takes one to know one, Ben!)

"Considering them so would be the equivalent of considering a 10-year-old's homemade fan video of his favorite sports team to be an official team message," Venzke said. "IntelCenter is not aware of any new imminent message by al-Qaeda or any other leading jihadist group in audio or video form that will call for the use of WMD against civilians."

Venzke makes a good point but he might just be upset that the "Al-Qaeda fan" didn't go through his military-industrial complex front in releasing the tape.

If you're wondering why the boys at IntelCenter always know when an "Al-Qaeda" video is set to be released two days before it pops up, the answer is simple - they are manufacturing the entire fraud.

Similar to the need to create a PR buzz before the release of a new DVD or a movie, IntelCenter makes sure its customers know ahead of time in order to cash in on a lucrative scheme that services client subscribers from governments and intelligence agencies around the world.

The franchise of hawking terrorist propaganda is no doubt a multi-million dollar cash cow, which is why Venzke seems upset that he's not got his hand in the pie on this one, but money isn't the only agenda behind IntelCenter's operation.

As we have exhaustively documented, Intelcenter is an offshoot of IDEFENSE, which was staffed by a senior military psy-op intelligence officer Jim Melnick, who has worked directly for Donald Rumsfeld. The organization released the "laughing hijackers" tape and claimed it was an Al-Qaeda video, despite the fact that the footage was obtained by a "security agency" at a 2000 Bin Laden speech.

IntelCenter was recently caught adding its logo to a tape at the same time as Al-Qaeda's so-called media arm As-Sahab added its logo, proving the two organizations were one and the same.
The Pakistani based Al-Qaeda group Jundullah, formerly headed by the alleged mastermind of 9/11, an organization which enjoys the funding, support and protection of the CIA, also produces propaganda tapes and literature for As-Sahab and in turn IntelCenter.

Perhaps the latest Al-Qaeda-WMD fraud denotes that IntelCenter has some good old fashioned competition on its hands in the emerging market of terrorist propaganda tapes, but for the rest of us it's another painful reminder that the corporate media has abandoned any pretense of investigative journalism in favor of acting as a mere relay circuit for Neo-Con black propaganda.

For the most part I like this site a lot but where are the posts from "jas?" You guys keep talking about him and ridiculing him but I don't see any of his comments. I emailed him and he laughed you guys off and said you're all mentally ill. Says you guys delete his posts because he disagrees with you about 9/11. I don't see any of his posts on here but I told him you guys were calling him a Bush supporter and he told me to ask you for evidence he supported Bush and to give me "one fact" about 9/11 being an inside job. We were never close friends but did go to school with him and know he has always railed against Bush as displayed on his myspace page which also shows he supported Ron Paul and calls for Bush to be tried for war crimes - I agree btw. I gotta admit he wrote a lot of negative things about what you guys have emailed him about but I don't see any of it on here. While personally I have questions about 9/11, I also doubt it was an inside job. He won't post anymore on your site because his wife asked him to stop but in his reply back he told me to tell you that "Larry Simmons is the Bill O'Rielly of the conspiracy lunatic fringe." So in fairness, what is your proof 9/11 was an inside job and why do you guys lie about him being a Bush supporter? I like your site but am interested to see your reply.

back in February (end of Feb) and beginning of March 2007 jas posted a lot of bullshit on here telling me to post one fact. So I finally did (just for him) on March 18, 2007. Its a HUGE posts, will take you a long time to read. Go back and read all the comments from the endof Feb--beginning of March 2007 up until my post on 3-18-07 and all the comments after that. Youll see that Jas NEVER--not once, has refuted anything I said in my March 18, 2007 post. I dont just believe 9-11 was an inside job anymore---i know it was.
