Intelligence Agencies Clearly Behind the Westgate Mall Attack

Update (9/28/2013): 

The Guardian:
Kenyan authorities had intelligence pointing to an attack in Nairobi a day before the Westgate mall attack. According to counter-terrorism documents, the government and military were warned that al-Shabaab was planning an attack on the capital where it would storm a building and hold hostages. 
There are also reports that Kenyan intelligence agents were at Westgate a few hours before the crowded shopping centre was struck by heavily armed terrorists last Saturday, in a four-day siege that left at least 67 people dead.


I've posted about how the woman seen directing the attacks was born into a military family and first became involved in Islamic radicalism while studying religion at school known to be a cover for MI6 training. I've also posted about how there was an armed SAS agent in the mall at the time of the attacks. It recently emerged that one of the lead attackers had served in the Kenyan Special Forces and was likely trained by the British military.

It is known that the SAS was on scene, alongside Israeli troops and, of course, Kenyan forces. Kenyan troops are trained by the British and the Israelis. It is acknowledged that Israeli, British and American security forces have served in an advisory role during the siege, with the first two participating in the actual response. It is also now acknowledged that the FBI is in Kenya to "assist" the investigation. On September 18, they "began fingerprint, DNA and ballistic analysis" to determine the identities of the victims and the attackers. The FBI director, James B. Comey, was from 2005 to 2010 an executive of Lockheed Martin, one of the world's largest defense contractors and a corporation that would gain incredibly from escalation in Somalia. Lockheed appears to have been involved in the 9/11 attacks.

Indeed, it would appear that the international subsidiaries of the Cryptocracy, all of them (with the exception of Israel) NATO countries, are all converging on Kenya to influence the probe.

The Guardian:

"We have moved to the next phase," interior minister Joseph ole Lenku told a news conference. 
He said that alongside US, British and Israeli agencies, Kenya was also receiving help from Germany, Canada and the police agency Interpol in the investigation.

It now appears that the Americans had a covert role in the armed response to the attack. Bendita Malakia, a graduate of Harvard University and a lawyer for the World Bank, reported "armed security men who she believed were from the United States" rescued her and fifteen others who had been hiding in one of the mall's stores for more than five hours, despite the fact that the Americans had no official involvement in the response. This report would place them there on the first day of the assault.

The Daily Mail:
Indeed, on the second day of the four day siege in Nairobi which claimed the lives of at least 67 people and injured over 200, there were reports from French press agency AFP that Israeli security forces were actively aiding Kenyan forces. 
And as the attack carried on to its final conclusion, British MI6 agents were also reported to be providing assistance to their Kenyan counterparts. 
However, it is not known who the 'American security team' who came to Malakia's rescue were working for or what capacity they were operating under. 
Kenyan officials have acknowledged that Israeli and American security personnel have taken part in planning the operation to retake the complex and provided logistical support according to the UK's Independent newspaper.
As I reported on September 23, the mall is in the same neighbourhood as the headquarters of the U.S. Agency of International Development (USAID), a known cover for CIA operations and personnel. Kenya is a center for the activities of the Mossad, CIA and MI6 in the region. This would have made it an ideal location to stage a horrendous provocation, given the immediate control they would have over the scene. Both the SAS and the Mossad have been caught in failed attempts to engineer terrorist bombings

The British government has long used the specter of al-Shabaab and other terror groups in order to justify their increasingly repressive surveillance state. However, around a quarter of its foreign fighters are British. One of its main financiers and top bomb-making tutors, Samantha Lewthwaite (who allegedly commanded the attack), is by all appearances an MI6 asset. Another alleged commander of the attack was a soldier in the Kenyan Special Forces who was likely trained by the British military. The leader of Moktar Ali Zubeyr, a veteran of the Afghan resistance, is the leader of the group. In the nineties, he became a member of the Al-Itihad al Islamiya (AIAI), an Islamic militant group that was largely comprised of Somalis who had participated in the resistance to the Soviets in Afghanistan. Of course, al-Qaeda was also largely comprised of Arabs who had fought for this cause. The resistance fighters were being supported, trained and supervised by the CIA, MI6, and SAS. The Mossad was also involved in this project.

Michael Adebolajo, the man who beheaded soldier Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich and who had contact with MI5, had been arrested in 2010 by Kenyan authorities. He and others were planning to travel to Somalia where they would be trained at an al-Shabaab camp. Adebolajo's younger brother Jeremiah was an MI6 asset who was paid thousands of pounds for his espionage activities in the Middle East.

In other words, the group accused of carrying out this "terrorist attack" is under the control of MI6. At the same time, Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko has claimed that he furnished two witnesses to the police who had been living with al-Shabaab in the Westlands and had learned that they were planning to attack a number of targets in Nairobi, including the Westgate Mall.

Two officers of the National Intelligence Service (NIS), the central intelligence organ of Kenya, admitted to a Kenyan newspaper that their agency had prior knowledge of the attacks:
Two NIS officers who did not want their identities revealed yesterday told the Star that their organisation had given advance warning of the attack to Inspector General of Police Service David Kimaiyo and Criminal Investigations Department director Ndegwa Muhoro. 
They sensationally claimed that Kimaiyo and Muhoro should be investigated for failing to act on intelligence briefs given to them. 
They also claimed that some senior officers within the Office of the President should be investigated for “suppressing” intelligence reports. 
It has also emerged that a policewoman has recorded a statement after her brother who works for the NIS warned her not to visit Westgate on Saturday because of an impending attack. The NIS officer is being sought for interrogation. 
The pregnant policewoman regularly went window shopping in Westgate on Saturdays.
"She has told police that her brother who is a NIS officer warned her not to visit Westgate that Saturday because she would not be able to run with her bulging tummy," a senior officer involved in the investigation said yesterday.

Given this foreknowledge, it is especially suspect that an undercover anti-terrorism agent with the Kenyan security services was inside the mall at the time. Abdul Haji, the son of a former security minister, rushed into the mall when he heard that his older brother was trapped inside. He admitted to NTV that his brother was an anti-terrorism agent who had been working undercover until the attacks. I wonder if he was having coffee with that armed SAS agent. Curiously, the woman rescued by the mysterious American security team and the little girl rescued by Haji were both from North Carolina. Al-Shabaab planned the attacks using the names of Masonic lodges in Charlotte, North Carolina as codes to refer to their targets.

Kim Sengupta, defense correspondent for the Independent, wrote on September 26, 2013:
It is highly unlikely that the bulky versions of GPMGs (General Purpose Machine-Guns) IEDs (improvised explosive devices) and RPG (Rocket Propelled Grenade) launchers could have been carried into the shopping mall by the terrorists who had initially gained entry pretending to be tourists even if some of them were, as the authorities claimed, men enveloped in niqabs.
It is almost certain that these had been secreted beforehand, say security sources. It is also likely that quite extensive reconnaissance had been carried out beforehand and that the attackers had detailed knowledge of the vast complex including floor plans. One line of inquiry being pursued by the Kenyan police is that they rented retail premises for their arms, which could also have given them access to the paperwork.
With the Kenyan security services clearly aware that the mall was the target of an impending attack, these MI6 assets were allowed to wheel their entire arsenal into the mall without any interference. There are even allegations in the Kenyan press that in reality none of the terrorists were killed during the assault and that they escaped through a vast underground sewerage tunnel that connects to a neighbouring mall as their escape route. For this scenario to be even remotely possible would require complicity of the Kenyan, American, British and Israeli forces at the scene. It would also mean that the team that committed the assault had an extraordinarily intricate knowledge of the mall. It would also mean that the security forces of Kenya, the United States, Britain and Israel are all involved in a cover-up as to who exactly died in the mall.

The very countries from where the accused attackers came provided the funding, training, arms and supervision to the group of Somalis in Afghanistan that would become al-Shabaab. The ally of these countries (Israel) that participated in the fostering of the Somalis in Afghanistan also owned the mall and would have therefore be in a perfect position to facilitate the secret transport of explosives and arms into the building. This country, along with another (Britain) were training the Kenyan troops. Now they are all converging on Kenya with their allies to "investigate" the Gladio operation that they organized.
