“CIA” reveals Khvaya and secrets of their contribution to ignite a war “civil” in Iraq?!!
Palm – Dr. Emil served a. Nakhlah agency “CIA” for 15 years, and retired on June 30 / June 2006, after he was Director of Strategic Analysis Program of political Islam, and the most important is the Directorate of Intelligence Complex dedicated to the cause of political Islam.
Focused its research on Islam, and education reform, and the stability of regimes and policy issues toward the Greater Middle East which also holds a large number of medals and intimations including medal CIA director, and Medal of Excellence in intelligence work, as well as a member of Council on Foreign Relations.
Traveled in 2002 to the Guantanamo Bay detention facility where he remained (11) days, where he met many detainees .. Prior to joining the agency, he worked “Nakhlah” and for a period that exceeded a quarter of a century, a university professor, and then was able to to travel across the world, and visit a large number of countries, Iraq was one of them .. I met him and I asked him about this country and about the war waged by the Bush administration to “terrorism” and has this is the first interview conducted by Dr. since he left the agency.
Through escalation media campaign before the Iraq war, administration officials claimed that the regime of Saddam Hussein’s links with “terrorist” organizations including al-Qaeda and what is your view about this?
Indeed, we did not have any evidence of a hub “Saddam – bin Laden” .. Saddam was a butcher, but he was a butcher secular, and we knew it; he did not begin to use religion only when he felt he was undefeated; having decided that it would be useful for him to work on the development of Islamic character of his case since he was expelled from Kuwait in 1991, began to go to the mosque for prayers.
I’ve had everybody in the Middle East knows that a joke; man did not have any “credentials” religious; because Iraq was a secular state; since women were the have more rights than those that are granted to other countries in the region, just as the Shiites were the ones the backbone of the Baath Party, and even the Communist Party, then that al-Qaeda did not decide to make Iraq a place for jihad but after nearly a year of the invasion in 2003; because they were preparing Iraq is a secular state .. Not workers (CIA) believe that there are links between Iraq and Al Qaeda, and has been the source of many of this type of information is the Iraqi National Congress, Ahmed Chalabi, in the sense that hearsay these coincided with the requests of those who are in the administration, and who they wish to wage war from the likes of Wolfowitz, nine-, Cheney and others .. From here, these “encouraged” the allegations although he was not there at all, no evidence supporting the existence of any kind of links.
What explains the failure of U.S. policy in Iraq?
main reason for our failure in Iraq is that it is not thinking about after the invasion; since it was clear that the military operation will succeed, and there was a vision ideology among some administration officials summarized we will welcome as liberators .. In short, these people did not understand that the Iraqis – even if they hated Saddam – but they will not bless we occupy Iraq.
Iraq was more complex than just the elimination of Saddam and his regime.
And we should learn from the British experience in the twenties, when modern Iraq was formed; since experience has shown that leaders who bring from abroad, will not succeed .. Many people across all need to think about planning for the future of the country after the overthrow of Saddam, the possibility of sectarian violence and the increasing number of militias; as well as the fact that the Shiites will demand to rise politically .. Not the owners of these propositions few among Americans within the intelligence community, but the fact that the administration preferred to listen to the voices of other .. The focus was, in their perception, focused only on the invasion, and to get rid of Saddam, then everything will evolve for the better later.
I traveled to Guantanamo in 2002, is surprised what I saw there?
I spent hours talking with the prisoners about the reasons that made them they become “Mujahideen” and how they came to prison .. It is true that some of the detainees participated in the jihad in Afghanistan, but that – mostly – was against the Northern Alliance .. Others were not well at all, but they were arrested during the war, in the sense that they were in the wrong place, and at the wrong time. Even the military leadership there know that at least one third of the detainees were not, not Mujahideen and not “terrorists.”
But we were paying for the Pakistani security forces bonus for each person Middle Eastern, paid with him and abandoning us and have passed me most of those who spoke with them at the camp we had paid nearly all (5000) dollars for each individual – and unfortunately – have treated us all the same way, and all Kdnahm back to Guantanamo, and this is what is most frustration among Americans toward the concepts of justice and righteousness.
How will the United States in Iraq right now?
We have reached that our presence there is part of the problem, in the sense that we have to think about devise an exit strategy .. There is a civil war in Iraq, and our presence contributes in تذكية this violence .. I say that we we are representing the role of lightning rod; any that we do not limit the violence, but we are contributing in it, and this is what stimulated “Mujahideen” and the idea that make Iraq a model for the region has become overridden, and the only question now before us, is about form that will become Iraq after he became a refuge for sectarian: Do you follow the Iranian model or whether it will be attached to the Arab authoritarian model? The Age Iraq currently is only three years, and I’ve forgotten almost secular democratic model, and this is what will be represented by a dark shadow of the U.S. efforts in spreading democracy in the region.
What are the the political potential side effects of the failure of Iraq and of the failures of the war on terror? have lost the affection of an entire generation in the Muslim world .. Disappeared democratic president and his program to reform the Middle East, with the possible exception of formal speech, of course .. That was the advantage the president’s policies for the region, and no one speaks about it now .. We have lost credibility throughout the Muslim world on democracy and government and fair Alaniabeyen ‘ We invent new rules to arrest people without charges and the (FBI) in Guantanamo for years, but it has not been able to prove any charge against any person. Islamic world says that we are talking about human rights, but we detain people is that Nkadhihm, and therefore the Islamic world is this war on “terror”, a war on Islam, and we were not able to Nkhalsm of that concept because Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib and other ill-treatment, lost concepts of justice, integrity and the rule of law, which is the heart of American principles, and this is very dangerous, and I think it will remain so for many years to come.
Is there an inherent threat in the Muslim world of Western democracy?
No, there is a threat only from those who use Islam for ideological motives, and who want to use violence .. There (1.4) billion people in the Muslim world, and only a small minority, maybe 2 – 3%, politically active .. They’re just as is the case of other Jews and Christians, are busy daily living better acquainted, child-rearing, and pay the bills, in the sense that most Muslims do not pose a political threat and a small minority of them only has a standby because possesses Meola “terrorist.”
There are hundreds of political parties in the Muslim world, in Indonesia, Malaysia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Morocco, Yemen, Pakistan, Nigeria, Bangladesh .. I have been involved these parties and their supporters in the elections many Vvazoa sometimes, and lost sometimes, and they confessed, most of the time, and then if they most, is not the application of sharia law and subjecting communities to judgment, even Hamas, have shown these recent opposition to Israel and service to the community, but not from a religious perspective .. Political Islam is not a threat, but the threat comes only when people become frustrated by the process democracy Vtnej through violence after that .. There is a real danger of “terrorists” few, and we should try them, and the long-term threat may come from those who will walk this road .. We do not need to attack, but we must also work hard, in favor of democracy and political reform.
Iran another great mystery of the advisers .. How to write the United States policy towards Iran? conflict in post-Saddam Iraq, the recent war between Hezbollah and Israel, and then strengthen and revive the Shiite sect in the region, all of these factors showed the status of Iran, and showed its borders and its influence as a regional authority clearly. Whether we like it or hate it, we will work in order to explore creative new ways to occupy Iran or brought about our policy in the region .. The United States was founded – and for decades – its policy in the Middle East, the closer and deal with the Sunni regimes authoritarian in the name of fighting communism during the Cold War until 9/11 .. I “Dallalna” these systems in order to maintain regional stability and fear of “the Shiites.”
Iran is a great country and a vibrant civil society has a rich history and culture and political traditions established .. I think it would be detrimental to our long-term interests, ignoring the reality that Iranian and allow ourselves to be Tamiha aversion to the current president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad .. Renaissance Shiite and clear across the region, from Azerbaijan to Pakistan .. Should dispel fears Sunni Shiite crescent, and devise ways to fill the religious leaders and social Shia social and religious issues .. The growing influence of Hezbollah, and its leader, Hassan Nasrallah, across the region and within the Sunni street, and the growing regional influence of Iran, two new facts, we should recognize them .. The issue of the Iranian nuclear file in this way, will form a new failure in the region, and here, too, we must new policy .. In short, we have to reconsider our previous actions.
