Mumbai attack was a false flag ops, says US author
LAHORE: An American academic, political commentator and scholar, Dr Kevin Barrett, has opined that former US President Barack Obama is “either wildly detached from reality or lying through his teeth while talking about Osama bin Laden and terrorism”.
Dr. Kevin Barrett made these remarks in one of his very recent TV interviews, while commenting on a speech made by Obama at the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit — an annual meeting of business tycoons, world leaders and Nobel laureates — in New Delhi.
Speaking during the event, the former US president had stated that Pakistan did not know the whereabouts of al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden, and that “Washington does not distinguish between terrorist groups which target India and those that target the United States”.
Barrett said further, “Obviously, every government does take a primary interest in so-called terrorist groups that target it”. And as the term terrorist is very confusing, Obama may have been playing with the lack of clarity in that term”.
The true meaning of terrorism is ‘intentionally targeting civilians,’” Dr. Barrett said. “And Obama, of course, is here with people from India who view the liberation struggle in Kashmir as terrorism, while it is not. The Kashmiri liberation forces are primarily non-violent just like in Palestine, but to the extent that they do target India, they target Indian soldiers in Kashmir, and that is their right under international law,” says the American scholar, adding.
“The Indian government, especially the extremist element, has partnered with the elements of the US and Israeli Deep State in trying to smear the Kashmiri liberation struggle by creating false flag terrorism in India in which civilians are slaughtered”..
Dr Barrett also asserted: “And Obama, of course, was going with the official version of the Mumbai attacks when he said the US was just as interested in prosecuting the attackers of the 2008 Mumbai slaughter as India was. But those attacks have been proven to be a false flag by the elements of the Indian government itself, in partnership with the United States”..
Dr Barret has also recommended a 800-page book written by Elias Davidson whose title is ‘The Betrayal of India: [A Close Look at the 2008 Mumbai Terror Attacks]’. According to the American scholar, “The 800 pages of documentation prove, beyond any doubt, that this was a false flag.”
