Russian military intelligence (GRU) from the Kremlin said recently that US Secretary Hillary Clinton was injured, and US Navy Seal Commander Job W. Price was killed when their C-12 Huron transport aircraft crash landed in the Iranian city of Ahvaz near the Iraqi border.
The State Department vehemently denies the story.
Strangely enough, Iranian intelligence agents confirm that a US aircraft is still in their possession in Ahvaz, but will only admit that the plane was forced to land because of technical problems.
The startling report cited that Clinton and her US Navy Seal escorts deviated from their assigned flight path heading, instead, directly towards Iran’s Ahwaz International Airport where, oddly enough, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was awaiting her arrival.
Iranian emergency and security personnel responded and attended to the victims, including Clinton who was reportedly unconscious and “bleeding profusely.”
After emergency aid was given, Russian agents stationed in Iran confirm that another US military flight was dispatched from Bahrain to Ahwaz which evacuated all of those killed and wounded in the crash including Clinton.
Although highly speculative, the implications are much bigger than what the US government wanted us to believe.
Amid speculation of Clinton’s diplomatic illness, the alleged suicide of a top US Navy Seal commander in Afghanistan has continued to fuel conspiracy theories that are unusually disconcerting and alarming.
Apparently, Clinton’s illness and the suicide of a top ranked US Navy Seal best known for finding and killing Osama Bin Laden evokes more questions than answers.
For one, the suicide of a distinguished naval officer of this grade seemed questionable, to say the least.
On the other, having suffered what the State Department describe as a “nasty bout with stomach flu” and a “concussion” which kept Clinton missing from public view for a while - it’s not clear whether the fall that led to Clinton’s concussion caused the clot or if an already-present clot led to the fall.
Russian medical experts stated that Clinton has “more than likely” suffered what they call a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) as a result of the plane crash and that they say is the “only reasonable explanation” for a blood clot appearing in the location between the skull and the brain.
The intriguing question is - if it did happen, what were they negotiating?
What were they hiding?
Central to an understanding of undeclared war against Iran, plausible deniability and collateral damage are basic rhetorical gambit designed to conceal diplomatic, military and political blunders.
In reality, disinformation and “black” propaganda in covert operation is a US presidential foreign policy tool consistent with an overall American approach trying to find ways to put pressure on the Iranian regime.
The covert plan is aimed primarily to stop Tehran’s suspect nuclear weapons program as well as preventing the Islamic republic as the greatest purveyor of terrorism in the Middle East and beyond.
Although it can be argued that the Obama White House use of such methods may be preferable to catastrophic war, ultimately, the goal is to find more effective ways to defeat Iran without recourse to an escalation of war.
The secret mission, if it occurred, was a bad, troubling example of diplomatic failure, arrogance and ambiguity.
Indeed, the US-Iran secret nuclear deal that Team Obama consistently denies is beginning to unravel its ugly head with disastrous consequences.
Of course, with Clinton’s recovery, this concussion provides the perfect cover for her testimony on the Benghazi attack. But, does it means the end of her political career?
In reality, the fiasco generated by Obama’s egocentric appeal practically undermines decades-long efforts to prevent a nuclear Iran. It lends credence to what political pundits believe all along, that Obama’s unprecedented betrayals have reached a dangerous turning point in foreign policy.
Moreover, a nuclear deal done in secret essentially bestows Tehran more reasons to dictate on its own terms with US-backing.
Could the primary target of this plane accident be another false flag event? Or, would it be possible that Clinton’s continued absence is an attempt to keep her from testifying on Benghazi before she steps down?
After Ambassador Chris Stevens was murdered in Benghazi, Libya - who will be the next casualty in Obama’s dangerous foreign policy?
It is not beyond the realm of impossibility that there were other top level casualties involved in the plane crash. If not, why was Clinton sent to Iran to begin with?
Certainly, if the secret meeting is not sanctioned by both governments, this plane accident could have itself triggered a full blown war.
Was it another false flag at the expense of Clinton and her US Navy Seal protectors who killed bin Laden? Someone must have known something and somebody must give in.
Incidentally, false flags of this nature usually end up into a war. But, this story doesn’t add up. After all, collateral damage is inevitable in war and plausible deniability is a friend in covert operation.
Here we see the contradiction imbedded in this argument that invalidates entirely the reasoning behind Clinton’s concussion and the suicide of a top ranked officer of the elite US Navy Seal.
Just because the secret mission could somehow forestall an imminent war with Iran, it does not absolve Obama of responsibility towards the American people for appeasement of the enemy in its own turf.
Actually, it is highly unlikely if anything good could come out of this insanity, this display of weakness, expecting the enemy to be generous in return.
Nothing surprises us anymore. Obama’s extreme narcissism and his doctrine of leading from behind compound the problem more often than not.
Because of Obama’s deep and abiding contempt for America, it is not surprising. In this case, it was an attempt to achieve a nuclear breakthrough at the expense of Israel and America.
So, it is only safe to assume that the arguments about the ethics of war need to be shelved and instead, we must seriously embrace amoral pragmatism and survival instincts.
Needless to say, this has become the stark and horrific reality that must be dealt with more cautiously by Israel, alone if necessary. Obama has said that by building "settlements", Israel is isolating herself. It is Obama who is isolating Israel with this Iran appeasement policy.
In short, no one can ever trust the US and it may not be surprising if it turns out that the Jewish state saves civilization and the world.
In essence, a radical change in the geopolitical make-up of a nuclear Middle East is the most urgent priority, one that the world continues to ignore.
This complacency, indifference, inaction and denial are not only counter-productive but detrimental to the western world’s self-defense.
Pointedly, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia repeatedly exhorted the United States to "cut off the head of the snake" by launching military strikes to destroy Iran's nuclear program. Perhaps that is the only practical solution to end the root cause of all troubles in that volatile region.
One Pentagon general emphatically said “I guess if the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem has to look like a nail.” And be treated like one.
