Corporate Media Runs False CIA Story Stating Muslim Group Claimed Responsibility For Oslo Bombings

Alexander Higgins

The CIA falsely claims a Muslim “terrorist” organization has claimed responsibility for the Oslo, Norway bombings and the corporate media is printing their lies.

All major news outlets ran a report from a CIA analyst claiming a Muslim terrorist group took credit for the Oslo Norway bombings, which the corporate media is trying so desperately to blame on Al-Qaeda .

Even though it would make no sense for Muslims to attack Norway, who is their ally.

Regardless of the absurdity of the claim, the CIA has falsely stated that a Muslim Jihad group  has accepted responsibility for the attacks Norway bombings and not the corporate media is running their lies.

The Guardian reports:

7.11pm: The New York Times has more on the claim of responsibility by an Islamist group (thanks to Marta Hernandez Salvan for passing this on):

A terror group, Ansar al-Jihad al-Alami (the Helpers of the Global Jihad), issued a statement claiming responsibility for the attack, according to Will McCants, a terrorism analyst at CNA, a research institute that studies terrorism. The message said the attack was a response to Norwegian forces’ presence in Afghanistan and to unspecified insults to the Prophet Muhammad. “We have warned since the Stockholm raid of more operations,” the group said, apparently referred to a bombing in Sweden in December 2010, according to Mr McCants’ translation. “What you see is only the beginning, and there is more to come.” The claim could not be confirmed.

The report is making its way around all the corporate news sites.  The New York Times still has their article up which adds:

Norway is a member of the NATO alliance and has a small fighting contingent in Afghanistan. It was one of several countries named by Ayman al-Zawahri, the leader of Al Qaeda, as potential targets for attack. In 2006, Norwegian newspapers reprinted Danish cartoons that angered Muslims by lampooning Muhammad. Norway has also historically been a frequent participant in peacekeeping missions and a host for diplomatic talks, including the 1993 Oslo Accords between Israel and the Palestinians. The Nobel Peace Prize is awarded by a committee of the Norwegian Parliament.

For record keeping purposes a screen shot of the CIA lies being published by the media is attached to this page.

I call the story a bull shit lie because here is what the “terrorist” group actually wrote which the CIA has sensationlized into reading as an admission of guilt:

الحمد لله ناصر عباده الموحدين ومذل اهل الشرك والكفر اجمعين والصلاة والسلام على نبينا محمد خاتم النبيين وعلى اله وصحبه اجمعين وبعد

قال تعالى : (فَقَاتِلْ فِي سَبِيلِ اللّهِ لاَ تُكَلَّفُ إِلاَّ نَفْسَكَ وَحَرِّضِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ عَسَى اللّهُ أَن يَكُفَّ بَأْسَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ وَاللّهُ أَشَدُّ بَأْساً وَأَشَدُّ تَنكِيلاً) [النساء : 84]

فها قد وصلت دول اوروبا رسالة اخرى من المجاهدين واثبات اخر لدول اوربا ان المجاهدين لن يقفوا مكتوفي الايدي تجاه حربهم ضد الاسلام والمسلمين.

واليوم قد تم استهداف النرويج لتكون درسا وعبرة لباقي دول اوروبا وقد سبق ان هددنا منذ غزوة ستوكهولم بمزيد من العمليات وقد طالبنا دول اوروبا بسحب جيوشها من ارض افغانستان وايقاف حربها ضد الاسلام والمسلمين ونكرر تحذيرنا مجددا لدول اوروبا ونقول لهم نفذوا مطالب المجاهدين فما ترونه ليس سوى البداية والقادم اكثر من ذلك.

اما عن اسباب استهداف النرويج فهي كثيرة اهمها مشاركتها في احتلال افغانستان والاساءة لنبينا الكريم محمد(صلى الله عليه وسلم).

فالحمد لله ان مكن لعباده الموحدين ..وندعو الله ان يحفظ اخواننا ومجاهدينا في كل مكان.

سبحانك اللهم وبحمدك اشهد ان لا اله الا انت استغرك واتوب اليك.

ابو سليمان الناصر

 Here is a Google Translation of that statement.

Praise be to God Nasser slaves combined and humiliating the people of shirk and kufr companions, prayer and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad, the Seal of the Prophets, his family and companions and after The Almighty said:

(then fight for God but do not cost yourself and rouse the believers may be that Allah keeps those who disbelieve and Allah is more powerful and in punishment) [women: 84]

Here have reached the countries of Europe is another message from the militants and further proof of the countries of Europe that the Mujahideen will not stand idly towards their war against slam and Muslims.

Today has been targeting Norway to be a lesson and a lesson to the rest of Europe has already threatened us since the invasion of Stockholm more operations has asked European countries to withdraw their armies from the land of Afghanistan and stop its war against Islam and Muslims, and we repeat our warning again to the countries of Europe and tell them carried out the demands of the mujahideen, what you see is only the beginning and the next more.

The reasons for the targeting of Norway there are many of the most important of their participation in the occupation of Afghanistan and the abuse of our Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

Praise God that enabled slaves to the combined .. and pray to God to save our brothers and our fighters everywhere.

Glory and praise God I bear witness that no god but You Astgrk and I repent to you.

Ansar al-Jihad of the world
While the statement gives reasons the attacks could have been made, this is by no means an acceptance of responsibility by the group.

Just more bullshit lies from our government.

To be clear, here is the true version of what the group actually said as clearly shown in the translation above and as reported on Norway TV and as reported by The Wall Street Journal.

Norway TV reported that a group called Helpers of the Global Jihad said “This is just the beginning of what will come,” though the TV station said it’s unclear that the group has taken responsibility.

By now the damage is done and with the Guardian, The Register, The LA Times, and The NY Times and countless other news outlets printing lies most of the world is already convinced this group is to blame.


Confirmed: NY Times Redacts CIA Lie From Their Article
The New York Times has quietly pulled the CIA lie from their article. Here is a screen shot of the redacted version as it reads now.

More lies from the the Times. As the screen shot above shows the NY Times article now reads:
Conflicting reports centered on one group, Ansar al-Jihad al-Alami, or the Helpers of the Global Jihad. According to Will McCants, a terrorism analyst at C.N.A., a research institute, the group issued a statement claiming responsibility, saying the attack was a response to the presence of Norwegian forces in Afghanistan and to unspecified insults to the Prophet Muhammad.

But Norwegian television reports later suggested that the group had denied responsibility. In the immediate aftermath of recent terrorist attacks, jihadi forums are often filled with claims and counterclaims that are impossible to independently confirm.
But the fact is William McCants, the CIA analyst originally quoted, has issued the redaction on his own website.
Alleged Claim for Oslo Attacks

Posted: 22nd July 2011 by Will McCants in Europe

This was posted by Abu Sulayman al-Nasir to the Arabic jihadi forum, Shmukh, around 10:30am EST (thread 118187).  Shmukh is the main forum for Arabic-speaking jihadis who support al-Qaeda.  Since the thread is now inaccessible (either locked or taken down), I am posting it here.  I don’t have time at the moment to translate the whole thing but I translated the most important bits on twitter.

Update: Abu Sulayman has now issued a retraction, stating clearly that “Helpers” was not involved in the operation and that his statement was not an official statement. He says those who carried out the attacks “must surely be known to all.”

For recording keeping purposes here is a screen shot of McCants article in which he issues the redaction and clearly admits he did not fully translate the original quoted text.

The NY Times fails to mention the fact that the CIA has duped them and analyst they quoted never even provided a full translation. Instead they keep their baseless original CIA lie in their article and blame the redaction on reports on Norwegian television.
