In times past, one of "Al Qaeda's" websites, alneda.com (al neda means the heavenly call, in arabic) turned out to track back to Berlin, Maryland,. Sarasota, Florida, and Austin, Texas! The fact that Texas and Florida were both governed till recently by two Bush brothers, and that Maryland is Spook Junction territory is a complete coincidence. No doubt.

It sort of puts one in mind of all the "Osama" tapes that can not be independently confirmed. Oh, but I stand corrected! There was one "Osama" tape that was independently confirmed. A prestigious sound lab in Switzerland confirmed to a 95% probability that the voice on the tape was NOT Osama Bin Laden. "
A team from the Lausanne-based Dalle Molle Institute for Perceptual Artificial Intelligence, Idiap, said it was 95% certain the tape does not feature the voice of the al-Qaeda leader." http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/2526309.stm
"Shortly before his untimely death, former British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook told the House of Commons that "Al Qaeda" is not really a terrorist group but a database of international mujaheddin and arms smugglers used by the CIA and Saudis to funnel guerrillas, arms, and money into Soviet-occupied Afghanistan." (a side note here--as shown in the new movie, Charlie Wilson"s War, at the height of the covert war in Afghanistan against the Russians $1,000,000,000 a year was being spent. Half of this came from the black ops budget in the House of Representatives (completely unknown to the U.S. public, of course) and half, 500 million dollars, came from Saudi Arabia.)

So Al Qaeda ------- The Base, is really The Database, and is a completely MI6 and CIA derived origin for the name of that organization. Foreign Secretary Robin Cook died before being able to disclose any more inconvenient truths.
