Paris Killings Postmortems

Paris Killings Postmortems

by Stephen Lendman

On Friday, three days rocking Paris ended. Cherif and Said Kouachi took refuge in a Dammartin-en-Goele printing company facility. 

French security forces stormed it. Reports said gunfire was exchanged. Both brothers were killed.

Separately, Amedy Coulibaly seized the Hyper Cacher food market in eastern Paris. Took hostages. 

Threatened to kill them if police stormed the facility where the Kouachi brothers were holed up.

French security forces moved in. Killing Coulibaly. Four hostages were found dead. Five others wounded. Dead men tell no tales.

A previous article suggested Charlie Hebdo killings were less about terrorism and more about false flag deception.

Kouachi brothers and Coulibaly were well known to police for years. French intelligence services closely monitored them.

Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said both brothers spoke "more than 500 times" to Coulibaly and his girlfriend Hayat Boumedienne by telephone. As this is written, she remains wanted.

Five others in detention. Including the wife of one of the Kouachi brothers. Reuters said one Kouachi brother was "identified by his identity card, which had been left in the (abandoned) getaway car."

A previous article raised doubts. Perpetrators don't leave behind documents incriminating themselves. A clear red flag.

London's Guardian said "police identified Coulibaly's DNA from a cloth found near the scene of the policewoman's in Montrouge, leading to his identification within two hours."

Forensic DNA analysis takes time. Around two days or longer. Impossible in two hours. French police lied.

French BFM TV posted an audio clip of conversations their staff said they had with Cherif Kouachi and Coulibaly.

It waited for crisis conditions to end before airing them. An edited version had Cherif saying he "was sent by Al-Qaeda in Yemen."

BFM said Coulibaly called the station. Spoke to its editor. Said he and Kouachi brothers "synchronized (their) operations."

Indicated no further attacks planned. Cherif was quoted saying: "We are defenders of the prophet…We don't kill women. We're not like you. We have codes of honor."

Kevin Barrett quoted No Lies Radio producer Allan Rees saying the Kouachi brothers "had a camera well placed beforehand to film the attack." 

"They spoke perfect French. Killed with military precision. Dressed in military style. Killed from a target list. Got away clean."

"French President shows up afterwards and then convenes an emergency meeting on what measures to enact."

"Multiple shooters. Could this be a false flag from French Intel Agency?"

This writer's previous article said things aren't always as they seem. Take nothing at face value.

Barrett is right saying what happened in Paris was a state-sponsored false flag unless or until proved otherwise.

The Kouachi brothers were well informed. They knew about a Wednesday Charlie Hebdo editorial meeting.

Who told them? Police were inside CH's offices before the attack. Two officers were assigned to protect editor Stephane Charbonnier.

Why didn't they do their job? A CH journalist let both brothers enter its heavily protected offices. No police were assigned outside.

Heavily armed security forces infest central Paris. Reports differ on what happened after the Charlie Hebdo killings.

A policeman was reportedly shot in the head. No blood was seen. One account said an officer emerged from a police car.

Another claimed he came out of a police station. A third had him on a bicycle. One source said both brothers returned to their car after killing the officer. Shouting: "We avenged the Prophet Muhammad."

Did French security forces know about the planned Charlie Hebdo attack in advance?" Were they complicit? Did they want this type incident to take place?

Did they produce "Je suis Charile" posters in advance? After Wednesday's incident, they appeared straightaway. An ocean of signs. Images televised worldwide.

Were Washington's dirty hands involved? Were Israel's? Israeli IBA Channel 1 deputy editor Amchai Stein was at the scene at the time. He posted photos of the shooting.

Netanyahu sent an Israeli SWAT team. Specialists in siege operations. On standby to aid French security forces.

What about Mossad and CIA operatives? They infest Paris. Were they involved? In planning and executing what happened. 

Were Kouachi brothers and Coulibaly convenient patsies? As well as third suspect Hamyd Mourad. 

His school friends twittered otherwise. Saying he was in class with them when Wednesday's attack occurred.

After seeing his name mentioned, he turned himself in to police in Charleville-Mezierres 145 miles northeast of Paris. Nowhere near where Charlie Hebdo killings took place.

Evidence shows French security forces closely monitored both Kouachi brothers and Coulibaly.

A Le Figero report cited French Interior Minister Bernard  Cazeneuve saying they were "probably followed" prior to what happened.

Hyped media claims about Charlie Hebdo attacks targeting free expression are nonsense. Lots of people are angry about MSM reports they dislike. Editorial staff killings don't follow.

False flags are a US tradition. Other countries use them. Black flag operations designed to deceive.

Big Lies. Gross distortions. Propaganda. Pointing fingers the wrong way. Falsified myths contrary to reality.

Pretexts for militarism. Wars. Colonizing countries for profit. Homeland repression. 

Creating national security state extremism. A dagger in the heart of free and open societies.

Obvious questions aren't asked. Cui bono? Why would both Kouachi brothers and Coulibaly target journalists and supermarket personnel and customers respectively?

For what purpose? What could they hope to gain? Martyrdom usually demands striking high-profile targets. Not ones unrelated to government policies.

Paul Craig Roberts believes America benefits most from what happened. Its hegemonic agenda. Its quest for world dominance.

Truth is systematically buried. Big Lies substitute. Fear-mongering gets people to go along with what harms them.

Believing war on terrorism mumbo jumbo is real. Accepting official narrative rubbish. Mindless of US-led Western support for radicalized Islamists.

Recruiting, arming, funding, training and directing them. Using them as proxy foot soldiers. Against US enemies. 

In countries America attacks. Others destabilized by subversion. For political advantage. A previous article explained terrorists R us. State-sponsored. 

Public opinion manipulated to believe otherwise. Manufacturing consent for what demands rejection. The late Gore Vidal said:

"As societies grow decadent, the language grows decadent, too. Words are used to disguise, not to illuminate, action." 

"You liberate a city by destroying it. Words are used to confuse, so that at election time people will solemnly vote against their own interests."

Orwell envisioned a dark future. Explaining "a boot stamping on a human face - forever." 

So-called democratic societies increasingly operate like police states. Constitutional governance is disappearing in plain sight.

Fundamental freedoms eroding in real time. Throughout Western societies. Incidents like in Paris for three days should scare everyone.

It bears repeating what another article suggested. They're coming to neighborhoods near you. State-sponsored terrorism matters most.
