Boko Haram: US AFRICOM’S Latest False Flag Franchise

21st Century Wire

Who are ‘Boko Haram’, and what are they up to in Nigeria?

Nigeria’s premier terror circus conveniently grabbed the headlines away from an embattled White House this week (simmering scandals, Behghazi, and IRS), just in the nick of time, pulling off the terror caper of the year. Without booking any coaches, a relatively small group of Boko Harem operatives managed to kidnap up to 300 young girls from a secondary school in Chibok in remote northeastern Nigeria… on April 14th.

If this was indeed a real kidnapping even, the response time is pretty pathetic – nearly one month? Barack and Michelle Obama were a bit slow on the uptake of this story, not least of all because Washington has been very busy indeed – ginning-up war with Russia, shipping weapons to Islamic extremists in Syria, various and sundry coups and destablisation plans around the globe, and last but not least, pretending to care about the missing airliner Flight MH370. Not worry, the FBI have been sent to Nigeria to take control of the crime scene – which may, or may not be good news for Nigerians. If the FBI were really there to figure out what happened, then they should dig into this: for some unknown reason up until a few months ago, the White House was trying to keep Boko Haram off the State Dept’s Official Designated Terror List, and there’s probably a very good reason for that…

CLUELSSS? First Lady takes a break from shopping to get her #hashtag on, weighing in on what looks like a  CIA-linked theatrical production in Africa.

Curiously, the news claims that fifty-three girls managed to escape Boko Haram’s evil clutches but over 200 remain captive after being abducted from on 14 April.

Take all of the complicated Wikipedia text away, and in real Nigerian modern informal language, ‘Boko Haram’ actually translates to, “everything is haram”According to their colourful Youtube and other sock-puppet videos (early videos had the Pentagon’s own SITE or Intel Center’ logo embossed on them), the “al Qaeda-linked” group(s) wants to impose sharia law in Nigeria, Niger, and even Cameroon. It’s main activity is killing and terrorising Christians, attacking and bombing churches and schools, government buildings, kidnapping western tourists, and has recently decided to try its hand in the child trafficking business.

Nigeria is resource-rich and has the largest population and workforce in Africa, but it is a nation divided along sectarian tribal and religious lines (thank the British for that, par usual), a poor nation ruled by a corrupt super-class in collusion with oil giants like BP, Shell, Chevron and others. If Nigeria remains divided, then there will almost certainly be no challenge to Britain, US and the Netherlands oil conquest of the country. To keep it divided, trouble needs to be stirred periodically.

“The US embassy’s subversive activities in Nigeria fits into the long term US government’s well camouflaged policy of containment against Nigeria the ultimate goal of which is to eliminate Nigeria as a potential strategic rival to the US in the African continent”, News Rescue reports.

But that is only the first layer to the new African onion. Here’s the bigger project…

One of the primary foreign policy goals of the US and NATO during the Obama Administration was to gain a greater military footprint in Africa, all of which is outlined in Washington’s AFRICOM policy directives which were set into motion in 2007 during the Bush presidency. This was arguably a much easier sell with African-American president Barrack Obama in the US than it would be with any other leader.

One only needs to read the strategic briefings in U.S. AFRICOM documents to realise the true endgame for Africa: the eviction of China economic and political influence throughout the continent, and when it comes to achieving that goal – anything goes (including a theatric Boko Haram production it seems). One AFRICOM study justifies US interventions on the basis of fears that China will eventually dispatch troops to Africa to defend its interests there:

“Now China has achieved a stage of economic development which requires endless supplies of African raw materials and has started to develop the capacity to exercise influence in most corners of the globe. The extrapolation of history predicts that distrust and uncertainty will inevitably lead the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) to Africa in staggering numbers…”

Washington understands better than anyone, that in the 21st century, the simplest way to ramp-up a police or military presence in any region is to create a public enemy. Understanding what the US project for a new American century in Africa is all about, you need to understand the McDonald’s model of business: franchises. As an example, Nigeria’s illusive terror brand called “Boko Haram” has always been hard to pin down, not least of all because there are 4 or 5, or even 6 different ‘Boko Haram’ outfits in Nigeria.

One thing which the Obama Administration has excelled at over the last 6 years in running guns.

Whether it’s within the US and Mexico with Operation Fast and Furious, or guns trafficked in Libya via Egypt during the Muslim Brotherhood’s short reign there, then from Libya to Syria, ore even directly from the CIA to jihadist terror groups in Syria, and also from the new Libya out to “Al Qaeda affiliates” in Algeria, Mali and Nigeria. Boko Harem was certainly hooked into the gun-running market and has benefited from heavy weaponry originally sent to arm Libyan rebels during NATO’s proxy war on the ground, where the CIA manage Libyan fighting groups, as well as carefully manage media reports coming out on a daily basis (Washington was in careful coordination with their ally Qatar’s al Jazeera TV network throughout the process).

Following NATO’s hostile intervention in Libya in 2011, we learned that AQIM had joined forces with the Al Qaeda linked Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) – all of which are inexorably tied to the CIA and British intelligence agencies since Al Qaeda’s inception after the Soviet war in Afghanistan during the 80′s. Now the baton has been passed to a franchise trading under the Boko Haram brand.

“In addition to support by the Saudis, Boko Haram has received indirect assistance from NATO via Libya’s al-Qaeda mercenaries”, explains Global Research.

“During an interview conducted by Al-Jazeera with Abu Mousab Abdel Wadoud, the AQIM leader states that Algeria-based organizations have provided arms to Nigeria’s Boko Haram movement ‘to defend Muslims in Nigeria and stop the advance of a minority of Crusaders.’ It remains highly documented that members of Al-Qaeda (AQIM) and the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) who fought among the Libyan rebels directly received arms and logistical support from NATO bloc countries during the Libyan conflict in 2011,” writes Nile Bowie.

A closer look at all of the so-called terrorist ‘franchises’ which the CIA are steering and managing throughout the continent reveals their true function – destabilisation, sectarian division which, of course, requires a US or NATO presence all over the continent. They are as follows:

Active CIA-MI6-Mossad-linked ‘franchisees’:

Boko Haram in Nigeria, Niger, Mali – see there exploits here and here.
Al Shabab in Somalia and Kenya – see there exploits here and here.
Al Qaeda in Islamic Magreb (AQIM) Algeria and Mali – see there exploits here and here.
Musilm Brotherhood in Egypt – see there exploits here and here.
Libyan Islamic Fighting Groupsee there exploits here and here.
Al Qaeda (all singing and dancing, ubiquitous pan-African/global brand name).

Non-existent, but still promoted in Washington:

Joseph Kony in Uganda (last scene in 2006, but that hasn’t stopped Obama from sending US troops into Uganda the hunt the ghost).

Last fall’s Kenyan Mall Massacre was alleged by “western terror experts” to have been carried out by “the al Qaeda affiliate known as al Shabab”, but curiously enough, as is the case with Boko Haram, there seems to be a few different al Shababs, and rather predictable, the most extremist, over-the-top and theatrical franchise has been linked to the CIA-MI5-Mossad intelligence nexus in Africa. African Union Mission to Somalia (AMISOM), a peace keeping mission operated by the AU in Somalia with approval by the UN, is ‘something for the locals’ – a subset of US AFRICOM, but within that framework, various shadowy elements view “manageable insecurity” as a good business.

Firedog Lake blog has even gone so far as to label Boko Harem as ‘Obama’s African Death Squad’. They explain Boko Haram’s ties to Washington:

A CIA Death Squad under President Obama’s control Murdered at least 12 Africans in Nigeria with a car bomb Thursday. The group Boko Haram claimed responsibility: http://www.theguardian.com/world/feedarticle/11322064

WikiLeaks revealed that they are part of the US Central Inteligence Agency:

Boko Haram is an ODS – an Obama Death Squad. The President has several such groups, carrying out Lynchings in Africa, and Murdering journalists in Honduras and Mexico. Boko Haram stepped up its operations exponentially when Obama became President. According to US officials, Boko Haram has Murdered over 10,000 Africans (Some were ordered by President George W. Bush, before Obama was in office):

Because of its affiliation with the CIA, the US State Department refused to designate Boko Haram a Terrorist group until a few months ago, despite its decade of lynchings: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/nov/13/us-designates-boko-haram-terrorist-organization/?page=all

To manipulate the news, they staged a battle with other CIA members and with Great Britain’s MI5:

    Excellent article. You have it spot on. Anyone with any knowledge of US foreign policy and covert operations can see this has the footprints of a CIA op all over them. Boko Haram is the African Al-CIADA – and Africom is the equivalent of the Project for a New American century in which the stated goal was to take control, of Iraq. I wish the average dimwit Obama/Democrat supporter would wake up, take their heads out of their 6 year sleep in the sand, and realise what is really going on instead of screaming about racism everytime someone criticises Obama and his stooge wife….and that means you Oprah!

    • Hp B

      How pathetic it is the Repubs and Dems waste all their time throwing scat on each other like baboons while the whole time their carny reps (both sides) are drinking scotch and patting each other on the back at the clubs, golf courses and restaurants, etc.

      Talk about neo-rubes and hayseeds! Yet they think they’re so ‘with it’ and involved and profound.
      Two dumb a** sides of the same rotten coin.

    • Cat Brown

      It’s superficial and naive to blame Obama as these policies have been in place since many administrations. Focus your attention on the multinationals who (who for personhood) have been running things all along.

      • Kalin

        Everyone’s afraid of the “J” word. Lol

  • Mitch Mitchell

    Very good article. Quality is quality. I wish this was on the lamestream media though.

    • Winston Smith

      Yea but sadly presstitutes like Rachael Maddow aren’t interested in the facts…

  • Leev-it-owt

    If Obama saves the 200 in Nigeria, might he save the 700 in Egypt?

    • Mitch Mitchell

      He will try, they are Muslim like himself. But in secret I would surmise. If it was not for the foothold in Africa he would not be bothered with 200 Christian schoolgirls. It does mean that he will have the backing of the population in the US to “go get them” though.

  • Hp B

    Have no fear schoolgirls! The Yanks are coming to liberate you and while they’re at it they’ll also liberate your oil, gold and other resources. Free of charge!!

    P.S. You’re welcome

  • Ken5745

    Al Qaeda, Al Nusra, Al Shabab and Boko Haram are all great franchise names. The only difference is that they trade in violence and bombs. Nice work, Obama. A 2nd Nobel Peace Prize will wait for you when you retire, no doubt.

  • Mark Page

    All I can say is that Goodluck Jonathan has an appropriate name – The Nigerians are going to need plenty to escape NATO’s crosshairs.

  • leaningona

    Is this just media hype to justify further US involvement in Africa. They may need to build military bases next to deal with this problem of children going missing. I remember a large group of children in Libya going missing during the conflict in 2011. Where was the media then?

    +Indeed, the [fill in the blank] crisis is following a pattern
    which is so well-worn now that it has almost become routine. Saturation
    reporting from a crisis region; emergency calls for help broadcast on
    the electronic media (such as the one recently on the BBC Radio 4
    flagship ‘ Today’ programme); televised pictures of refugees; lurid
    stories of “mass rapes”, which are surely designed to titillate as much
    to provoke outrage; reproachful evocations of the Rwandan genocide;
    demands that something must be done (“How can we stand idly by?”, etc.);
    editorials in the Daily Telegraph calling for a return to the days of
    Rudyard Kipling’s benevolent imperialism[6] ; and, finally, the
    announcement that plans are indeed being drawn up for an intervention


    intervention will allow Western forces to control an oil rich region,
    and perhaps to expel the present holders of concessions. The fact that
    the biggest of these is China, and that America’s other foreign
    adventures also seem to have as their goal the control of energy
    supplies to that strategic rival, only adds further piquancy to what is,
    otherwise, an all too banal case of modern imperialistic meddling.+

      In Afghan fields the poppies grow,
      between the crosses, row on row..

  • james Kulas

    I knew this sounded fishy from the start-a few hundred girls abducted in Nigeria and its ‘We must save them’. What about the hundreds of thousands of children abducted from other countries all over the world on a daily basis? Nothing on that, no invading Asia or South America.

    • waveaether

      It’s that kindergarten logic that says if we can’t solve all problems everywhere we shouldn’t try to solve any anywhere.

  • Amos

    I’m concerned the next super villain might be Al Kabong..

  • Stepford 88

    A very good review of the drama being played out under the guise of news. The mannerisms of the crisis actor playing the role of villain is just like the crisis actor in the Woolwich hoax. Even his outfit has the look of being borrowed studio outfit aka ‘American rapper style’.

  • Authentic Diamond

    oh god these shady western and Israeli secret service are everywhere. causing us all sorts of problems in Africa and Middle East. They are causing all sorts of problems in North South America, Europe and Asia. They along with the elite governments of the world are the instigators, perpetrators and real terrorists. To hell with them.

  • UncommonStats™

    Israel.. flat out..

    You all did hear about the World Economic Forum in #Nigeria
    still going on 5/8/14? This is a quote from Dominic Barton, Global
    Managing Director of McKinsey & Company (Resource Revolution-Is
    increasing demand for natural resources an opportunity or a threat?
    For true innovators, there is only one answer.) “Africa represents our
    fastest-growing region in the world. If you want to be relevant, you
    need to be in this part of the world – ”

    • waveaether

      So what? If a place has oil and minerals it means there are no terrorists? It proves the terrorists are made up? A conspiracy theorist can always find an alternate excuse for to justify their conspiracy. But cynicism is proof of nothing except a lack of reasoning ability.

      • WHITEAPPLE∞TakeAbite

        who said that? me? how many boko groups are there? what are their relations to the CIA and others? what are the chances that the poor peoples group that they originally were before doesn’t still exist? what is to say that these people are not in support of the WEF and wholesale resource pillaging? no, there are terrorists there, corp, real, faked and otherwise. you seem to have a lack of perceptive ability and making connections. So you are in support of sending in the US, UK, FR, RU, CH, IS, CA and AUS in for a feeding frenzy when you’re info is lacking? that is not critical thinking, that is brainwashed. This article was printed in the S. African news about the time Obama got his Nobel award. http://www.iol.co.za/sundayindependent/barack-obama-s-six-deadly-sins-1.1539588#.U3JxqsfQ9PI

        • waveaether

          I have yet to see any evidence of any kind of a connection between the CIA and Boko Haram. What the trolls here call connections are so thin and so stupid that I could use their logic to prove that the Chinese communists are creation of the Queen of England. The central binding meme for you people is that all western and US actions are based on evil intentions. That is not thinking. That is simply shaping reality to a foregone and utterly idiotic conclusion. This site advertises itself as a place for an independent thinker. But as far as I can see, it is home to non thinking sheep that have never taken an independent course in their lives. I look at the article above and there are a least a dozen assertions that should be questioned. But there are no questions here. Just bleeting sheep.

          • WHITEAPPLE∞TakeAbite

            well, shoot, I should just go to you instead of looking at tomdispatch or african news or anything for that matter. I am not they, clearly the connections are there. you people – seriously derogatory and unnecessary waveaether, why don’t you take McCain’s job then? Who said anything about the queen, just because i brought the wef issue to the plate you immediately make assumptions of my character and details of this event I hold to be true – don’t

    ” It remains highly documented that members of Al-Qaeda (AQIM) and the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) who fought among the Libyan rebels directly received arms and logistical support from NATO bloc countries during the Libyan conflict in 2011,” writes Nile Bowie.”

    This is a perfect example of the kind of utter stupidity that passes for news on this site. This idiotic and indefensible connection is drawn between NATO aiding in the overthrow of the dictator Gadaffi to the even more idiotic claim that NATO’s purpose in trying to get rid of Gadaffi was to channel arms to Al Queda groups and the completely moronic claim that such weapons were being supplied to these Al Queda groups so that they could then be forwarded, at some future time, to aid other as yet unknown terrorist groups in other parts of Africa.

    The trolls that live here may as well claim that all terrorism is caused by the CIA because both breath the same air.

  • Weihan Xingqi

    Africa is perhaps the only area in which we should side with the NWO cabal. IF the current trend continues with China’s growing influence in Africa, ALL AFRICAN WILDLIFE will be annihilated, bar none. Only a full-scale occupation of the entire continent by forces that respect the sanctity of non-human life can even hope to end the brutal slaughter of thousands and thousands of elephants, rhinos, lions. The new rich (bao fa) in China have developed a rapacious appetite for ivory, and the government of China is simply NOT doing enough to stop this. We cannot allow this trend to continue.
    We need armies to stop this insanity.

  • firestone

    You need to add ISIS/IS to that list now.

  • Kalin

    Well Nigeria, here comes Jewmerica to save you – just like we saved the Filipinos, the Koreans, the Vietnamese, the Iraqis and so on. Whenever you hear Jewmerican media use the word “liberate”, visualize “annihilate”.

    Not so fine folks the Jewish cabal of Washington D. C. and its vicious military they use to rape, plunder and slaughter peoples and nations with. They never create a problem they don’t fix, by golly.

  • Dubiousmack

    All i know is David Rodriquez head of Africom is a jew and needs to be relieved of command immediately. He is Mossad operative and one the highest ranked traitors in our government. WHEN I AM PRESIDENT NO JEW WILL BE ALLOWED IN GOVERNMENT, MILITARY, BANKING, EDUCATION, MEDICINE OR MEDIA. THEY WILL ONLY BE ALLOWED AS MIGRANT LABORS AT BEST BEFORE BEING DEPORTED TO ISRAEL.
