Jundullah leader Abdulmalik Rigi received $100,000 from US operatives to fuel sectarianism in Iran in just one of their meetings, his brother has said.

"My brother Abdulmalik met several times with US forces in Pakistan," Abdulhamid Rigi told a group of tribal leaders and citizens in the town of Iranshahr in the southeastern province of Sistan and Baluchistan.

"I myself took part in one of those meetings, where we discussed recruitment, training, infiltrating Iran and methods of inflaming Sunni-Shia sectarianism for three hours. In that meeting, the Americans gave my brother $100,000," he added.

Abdulhamid also said that during the meeting in question, his brother had asked for computer and satellite equipment, which he used to recruit young Sunni Baluchies.

According to Jundullah's former number two, young men were attracted to the group because it sought to portray itself as an Islamic and Jihadist movement.

He said that the group promoted the idea that killing two people from the Shia community would ensure entry to Paradise as they are infidels.

Abdulhamid said that he had shot his wife dead in the Pakistani city of Quetta while she was asleep, because his brother had said she must die for being a Shia and a government spy.

He added that Abdulmalik too had previously killed his own wife by slitting her throat for the same reason.

Abdulhamid Rigi had earlier confirmed that the ring leader had repeatedly met with US agents in the Pakistani cities of Islamabad and Karachi since 2005.

"In Pakistan, Malik [Abdulmalik Rigi] contacted an individual who resided in the US, who then put him through to the FBI," he said in a recent interview with Press TV.

Jundullah (meaning 'God's Army') is a Pakistan-based terrorist group closely affiliated with the notorious al-Qaeda organization and is made up of disgruntled members of Iran's Sunni Baluch community.

A 2007 Sunday Telegraph report revealed that the CIA had created Jundullah to achieve 'regime change in Iran'.

The report said it was the very same US intelligence outfit that had tried to destabilize Iran by 'supplying arms-length support' and 'money and weapons' to Jundullah.

Another report posted by ABC also revealed that the US officials had ordered Jundullah to 'stage deadly guerrilla raids inside the Islamic Republic, kidnap Iranian officials and execute them on camera', all as part of a 'programmatic objective to overthrow the Iranian government'.

Jundullah has carried out a number of bombings and other violent attacks in Iran resulting in many casualties. Some of the attacks for which it has claimed responsibility are the killings of at least 16 Iranian police officers in a 2008 attack, nine Iranian security guards in 2005, and another 11 in a 2007 bombing.

The group's leader Abdulmalik Rigi has also publicly claimed responsibility for a bombing in May at a Shia mosque in the southeastern city of Zahedan, which left 25 worshipers dead and scores injured.

Soon after the attack, Abdulmalik Rigi admitted during an interview with a US-based satellite TV station that his group collaborated with another anti-Iranian terrorist group, the Mojahedin Khalq Organization (MKO).

"They (MKO) inform us about the regime's activities in our areas of operations and let us know of the regime's forces in these districts and send us most of the intelligence of our interest by email and messages," Rigi told the station.

MKO is listed as a terrorist organization by the US, Iran, and Iraq. Nevertheless, the US government has still not classified Jundullah as a proscribed terrorist organization.

Comment:

Eventually at some point the US government (US and British Military Intelligence) will say that the Talibans were not the extremists, but it was Al-Qaeda that were the extremists, and that Al-Qaeda had infiltrated the Talibans.

Terrorist group agents of Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan (SSP) may be planning multiple attacks on US soil along the US-Canada Borders, and or popular cities such as New York and Las Vegas.

Pakistan Insurgency Might be Caused by Blackwater

beforeitsnews.com
December 9, 2009

A petition was made to high level officials in Pakistan about Blackwater's involvement in certain key conflicts, says IntelDaily:

The Lahore High Court chief justice Khawaja Muhammad Sharif served notice on Pakistan's Interior Ministry for not replying to a petition demanding full disclose on the activities of Blackwater in the country, and warned that if the interior secretary does not reply by Dec. 14 he could be prosecuted for contempt of court. Sharif also called for a detailed report from the Foreign Ministry on a request to search of the US embassy to recover illegal weapons. Hashim Shaukat Khan, president of Pakistan's Watan Party, had filed the petition. His attorney, Barrister Zafarullah, said the day Blackwater stepped into Pakistan, terrorism and suicide attacks stepped up. He also alleged that illegal arms are being stored in the US embassy, which were being used for "sabotage acts" in the country. (Pakistan Daily Times, Dec. 5)

Pajamas Media says that the situation in Pakistan is becoming ever more dire:

During morning prayers, terrorists in Rawalpindi stormed into a place of worship frequented by military officials. Using machine guns, grenades, and IEDs, they killed at least 37 people — including 17 children.

Killing people while they are praying is a horrific and barbaric act. And yet in Pakistan this is a common, almost monthly occurrence.

Bill Roggio of The Long War Journal has been keeping track of major attacks at mosques, religious events, and Islamic institutions in Pakistan. In the past 24 months, there have been 19 such events, which have resulted in more than 400 dead worshipers and hundreds more wounded.

Accoridng to GreenviewUSA, members of Blackwater were allegedly arrested in Lahore, Pakistan:

Security agencies arrested four suspected members of notorious Blackwater agency while they were trying to force their entry into the Cantonment Area here on Tuesday evening, sources informed.

However, they were released two hours later on the intervention of the US Consulate.

According to well-placed sources, the officials of security agencies intercepted three vehicles with tinted glasses near Sherpao Bridge, as security was on high alert, a day after twin bomb blasts hit Moon Market, Lahore’s leading shopping mall, leaving more than 54 people dead and 150 others wounded.

According to these recent reports, the Blackwater operatives are causing much mayhem and could be a leading cause of terrorist insurgents in Pakistan.

Blackwater founder says he aided secret programs

December 3, 2009
WashingtonPost.com

The founder of Blackwater Worldwide acknowledged in an interview published Wednesday that he had helped the CIA with secret programs targeting top al-Qaeda leaders, a role he says was intended to give the agency "unattributable capability" in sensitive missions.

Erik Prince, owner of the military contractor now known as Xe Services, told Vanity Fair magazine that he performed numerous "very risky missions" for the spy agency, some of which were improperly exposed in leaks to the news media.

The magazine, which was granted rare access to Prince and his deputies at the company's facilities in the United States and Afghanistan, said the former Navy SEAL had served a dual role for the CIA as both a contractor and an "asset," or spy, who carried out secret missions as recently as two months ago, when the Obama administration terminated his contract.

Among other, previously undisclosed roles, Prince ran intelligence-gathering operations to coordinate the movement of undercover operatives in "one of the so-called Axis of Evil countries," the magazine said, citing unidentified sources familiar with his activities.

"But when it became politically expedient to do so, someone threw me under the bus," Prince said, referring to recent leaks about his company's CIA ties.

Blackwater was identified in media reports this summer as a participant in a secret CIA program that sought to use special teams of assassins to kill or capture al-Qaeda leaders overseas. The program was halted in July after CIA Director Leon Panetta privately briefed congressional leaders about the effort and acknowledged that under the Bush administration, the agency had deliberately kept lawmakers in the dark.

Current and former intelligence officials have acknowledged that the program existed in three different forms over the past decade but was never fully operational. "The only trigger that got pulled -- the only one that was ever even close to being pulled -- was the one that finally killed the whole idea," a source familiar with the matter said Wednesday.

Vanity Fair said the assassin-team program was begun in 2001 under Enrique "Ric" Prado, then the CIA chief of operations for counterterrorism. When Prado left the CIA to join Blackwater in 2004, he essentially took the program with him, securing an arrangement that would allow contractors to assume the risks and deflect blame from the agency if things went wrong, the magazine said.

"We were building a unilateral, unattributable capability," Prince was quoted as saying. "If it went bad, we weren't expecting the chief of station, the ambassador, or anyone to bail us out."
