Last week's terror attack on offices of the satirical Charlie Hebdo magazine "has many of the characteristics of a false flag operation" and "simply doesn't wash," claims a blog post on the website for the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity on Wednesday.
"The attack on the cartoonists' office was a disciplined professional attack of the kind associated with highly trained special forces, yet the suspects who were later corralled and killed seemed bumbling and unprofessional," writes columnist Paul Craig Roberts
"It is like two different sets of people ... the Charlie Hebdo story simply doesn't wash. If you believe it, you are no match for a Muslim."
The institute is connected to former GOP presidential candidate and Rep. Ron Paul, the father of Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, a potential presidential candidate himself.
Roberts pointed in his article that Muslim terrorists like the three who were killed in the days after the attack on Charlie Hebdo are usually prepared to die, but "the two professionals who hit Charlie Hebdo were determined to escape and succeeded, an amazing feat."
But ironically, they left identification in their getaway car, which Roberts said reminded him "of the undamaged passport found miraculously among the ruins of the two WTC towers that served to establish the identity of the alleged 9/11 hijackers."
The 9/11 attack showed that 19 Muslims, without government support, were able to outwit "not only all 16 US intelligence agencies, the National Security Council, Dick Cheney and all the neoconservatives in high positions throughout the US government, and airport security, but also the intelligence services of NATO and Israel’s Mossad," if the official story is to believed, said Roberts.
And he wanted to know how "such intelligent and capable people" who could orchestrate the 9/11 attacks "could possibly be so stupid as to shoot themselves in the head when they could have thrown France into turmoil with a mere lawsuit?"
Instead, says Roberts, it's a "plausible inference" that the identification belonged to Cherif and Said Kouachi, but they were "convenient patsies" who were later killed by the police, but not the identifications of the real Charlie Hebdo killers.
And the third suspect, Hamyd Mourad, who had allegedly driven the getaway car, turned himself in and says he has an alibi, said Roberts, which would make him the "despoiler of a false flag attack" who could be "coerced or tortured into some sort of confession."
Instead, claimed Roberts, Mourad turned himself in to prevent being killed as a terrorist, and none of the media is reporting the reason for his surrender.
Another story not being reported is the suicide of French Judicial Police official Helric Fredou, who died "in the middle of the night while writing his report on his investigation," said Roberts.
"The official story is that Fredou was suffering from 'depression' and 'burnout,' but no evidence is provided," said Roberts. "Depression and burnout are the standard explanations of mysterious deaths that have unsettling implications."
Fredou, 45, shot himself on Jan. 7 with his own police weapon in his office after meeting the relatives of one of the Charlie Hebdo victims, reports The Daily Mail
. He had been a police officer since 1997 and the regional police deputy director since 2012.
Roberts accused the American media of "serving as a ministry of propaganda for Washington," by repeating the "implausible story" behind the Charlie Hebdo killings.
"Why would Muslims be more outraged by cartoons in a Paris magazine than by hundreds of thousands of Muslims killed by Washington and its French and NATO vassals in seven countries during the past 14 years?" said Roberts. "If Muslims wanted to make a point of the cartoons, why not bring a hate crime charge or lawsuit?"
No goals were achieved by the attacks, if Muslims performed them, said Roberts, as it "ended French and European sympathy and support for Palestine and European opposition to more US wars against Muslims," and the Charlie Hebdo attack places France back under Washington's control.
"Americans are a pitifully misinformed people," said Roberts. "All of history is a history of false flag operations. Yet Americans dismiss such proven operations as “conspiracy theories,” which merely proves that government has successfully brainwashed insouciant Americans and deprived them of the ability to recognize the truth."
