Ex-CIA official on Iraq’s future

Muqtada-al-Sadr[1]On May 24, 2016, ex-CIA official Graham E. Fuller posted an article on his personal blog, entitled,Glimmers of a Future in Iraq?.In the article, the writer paints Iraqi Shi’ite cleric Muqtada al-Sadrwhose fightersinflicted a humiliating defeat on US forces led by Zioconservatives’ heroGen. David Petraeus inFallujah as a moderate, national, and anti-Iran Iraqi Shi’ite leader.
The Shi’a have not handled the post-Saddam situation well. As the numerical majority, the Shi’a quickly moved to ensure their electoral dominance over the political order after Saddam Hussein and have sidelined the once-ruling Sunnis from a major voice in governance. Worse, Shi’ite militias have behaved harshly against Sunni communities in an effort to reduce Sunni power and even to avenge the past. This very Shi’ite heavy-handedness is one reason why some Iraqi Sunnis have lent support to the Islamic Statewith its militantly anti-Shi’ite policies,” Fuller said.
Some key elements of the Shi’ite clergy are often more enlightened that their political counterparts. The impassioned young cleric, Muqtada al-Sadr, bane of the U.S. occupation, is back yet again. Often mercurial, he also has a huge loyal following including a militia; his power and reputation rest particularly upon the impeccable clerical and nationalist credentials of his famed clerical father and uncle – both murdered by Saddam,” Muller adds.
Muqtada has regularly demonstrated streaks of broader Iraqi nationalism even within his sectarian power base. He has spoken for all of Iraq against the U.S. occupation; he believes in a united Iraq and not just a Shi’ite Iraq. Lately he has made remarks critical of Iran, a country that has often offered him refuge in the past and has supported him with funding and weapons,” says Muller.
I agrees with Muller so far. But then Muller spills his ‘Zionist beans’: “But Muqtada is his own man, and he is making it clear that Iraq, while grateful to Iran for all its help over the years, cannot let Iran run Iraq; Iraq must be independent and sovereign.”
So I ran a check and found Muller’s very interesting background involving his association with pro-Israel RAND Corporation, authoring several books on Islam, Middle East and Pakistan. He even muzzled Turkish journalists over telling that CIA and Mossad pulled the 9/11. Graham Fuller is also on FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds’ list of National Security State criminals who are known to be criminals by the FBI, but are being protected under the State Secrets Privilege.
On May 28, 2013, American academic Kevin Barrett, PhD, wrote: “During my three-week tour of Turkey in 2011, I learned another interesting fact about Fuller: he led the CIA’s 9/11 cover-up in Turkey. By September 12th, 2001, most of the leading international-affairs journalists in Turkey knew or suspected that the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon had been an inside job. But few wrote about their suspicions. Why not? Because Fuller had threatened them, and they feared for their lives.”
In April 2013, Jewish investigative journalist, film-maker and author Daniel Hopsicker claimed that uncle of Chechen Tsarnaev brothers’ (framed in Boston Bombing), Ruslan Tsarni, was married the daughter of CIA operative Graham Fuller.
