Harvard "Fellow" CIA spook likens freemason opponents and JFK conspiracists to Al Qaeda terrorists

Rolf Mowatt-Larssen, described on Harvard University's website as "director of the Office of Intelligence and Counterintelligence at the U.S. Department of Energy and former head of the Central Intelligence Agency's WMD and terrorism efforts", became a "senior fellow" at the Harvard Kennedy School Belfer Center in January 2009.

Most recently writing what he describes as 'the authoritative timeline' of 'Al Qaeda's Pursuit of Weapons of Mass Destruction', Mowatt-Larssen is the epitome of statist mouthpieces, fear-mongering eight years after 9/11 and attempting to perpetuate the lies which justify occupation and genocide in Iraq as well as the police state here at home.

In his discussion paper "The Armageddon Test" published in  August 2009, Larssen wrote about the "Japanese cult group Aum Shinrikyo and al Qaeda"'s desire to aquire and use nuclear weapons. He addressed their "thinking and approaches",  concluding at the end of the paper that the threat of "nuclear terrorism" which they pose  "is a growing threat that is fueled by broader trends of the 21st century, including emerging patterns in extremism."

Aum Shinrikyo, interpreted as 'supreme truth', was founded by Japanese 'guru' Shogo Asahara in 1984. The United States, and Canadian governments, as well as the European Union, classifies Aum Shinrikyo  as a terrorist group. The group perpretated the Sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway in Mach 1995, killing twelve people.

Larssen wrote "Shogo Asahara's dark vision of a Judeo-Freemason international conspiracy that ruled the world (with a little help from the CIA) served as justification for his prophecy that a nuclear Armageddon was imminent -- and desirable". Larssen goes on to note that Osama bin Ladin's promise to use weapons of mass destruction "is justified on grounds of destroying an international conspiracy to control the world."

Larssen continues to characterize bin Laden as having several beliefs that, upon examination, sound oddly similar to those of libertarians and 'new world order' opponents who find themselves outside of the left-right paradigm:

"The al Qaeda leader further stated: "The capitalist system seeks to turn the entire world into a fiefdom of the major corporations under the label of globalization in order to protect democracy." He argued that Republicans and Democrats ultimately serve the same malevolent master: "When (John F.) Kennedy took over the presidency and deviated from the general line of policy drawn up for the White House and wanted to stop this unjust (Vietnam) war, that angered the owners of the major corporations who were benefiting from its continuation. And so Kennedy was killed..."

President Obama's appointee Cass Sunstein has an eerily similar disdain for so-called 'conspiracy theorists', calling for ‘cognitive infiltration’ of 9/11 conspiracy groups'. George W. Bush, in November 2001, tried to discourage the public from seeking out the truth, telling the U.N. "We must speak the truth about terror. Let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories concerning the attacks of September the 11th; malicious lies that attempt to shift the blame away from the terrorists, themselves, away from the guilty. To inflame ethnic hatred is to advance the cause of terror."

Obama picked up where Bush left off, defending the official fairy tale in June 2009.

Like Mowatt-Larssen, Under Secretary of Defense Dr. Ashton B Carter  also writes for the Harvard Belfer Center .As reported earlier this month, Carter states on the U.S. Defense Science Board website that  "the Department of Defense is embarked on efforts to transform the nation's armed forces to meet the demands being placed on them by a changing world order."
