BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:12 P.M.) – Google has helped Al-Qaeda and other Salafist groups like the Muslim Brotherhood gain new members at the dawn of the Syrian conflict, secret documents and e-mails published by Wikileaks show.

The then director of Google Ideas, Jared Cohen coordinated actions to support the groups often dubbed as rebels with then U.S. Foreign Minister Hillary Clinton and Deputy U.S. State Secretary William Burns. Google employed it’s expertise in the IT sector to help the conflict in Syria gain traction.

In July 2012 Google provided a software tool, with which defections in Syria were to be tracked and the thereby gained informations spread in Syria with the help of Al-Jazeera. According to the plotting of U.S. officials and Google, this should encourage more people to take up arms and join the ranks of the rebels. Then Director of Policy Planning for Obama, Jake Sullivan let Hillary Clinton, for which he served as an advisor in the last presidential election, know that, “this is a pretty cool idea.”

The U.S. administration back in 2012 was already aware of the fact, that the opposition in the Syrian conflict mainly consists of Al-Qaeda and other jihadist groups. In a then secret, now publicly available internal report of the U.S. administration on the Syrian conflict is stated, that “the salafist, the Muslim Brotherhood and AQI are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria.”

Furthermore the rise of the Islamic State was anticipated to result out of an empowered Al-Qaeda along the Syrian-Iraqi border: “If the situation there unravels, there is the possibilty of establishing a declared or undeclared salafist principality in eastern Syria (Hasakah and Deir Ezzor) and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want.”

Supporting Al-Qaeda it seems, was already feasible for the U.S. administration in 2012, just 11 years and 2 wars after the Twin Towers in New York were hit by planes. Sullivan wrote in another mail reporting to Clinton about the Syrian conflict in 2012 that “Al-Qaeda is on our side in Syria.”

Google which tries to gain users trust with it’s slogan -Don’t be evil- since year 2000, has also evolved. In 2015 the company was restructured, with Alphabet now being the parent organisation of the subbranches like Google, Verily and Google Ideas. It has also become part of the U.S. military industrial complex, which provides products and services essential for the deployment and sustenance of military operations, as NSA director Keith Alexander assessed.

Alphabet’s head Eric Schmidt and Jared Cohen envisioned this new status for Google: “What Lockheed Martin was for the twentieth century, technology and cyber-security companies will be for the twenty-first.”

  1. Total data of #Wikieaks on Google-Al Qaeda (2012), doesn’t have any ‘configuration’. In absence of configuration, this is just a serial manipulation. These sort of manipulation is done by local media everyday. US State Department always maintain fundamentals of Foreign Balance & Political Trivia.

  2. Jared Cohen, a stinking zionist Joo, is this any surprise? of course not!!!

    • Like your Nasrallah 😉
      Always remember this :
      “We created Hezbollah”-Ariel Sharon 😉

      • here is Anna Frank uncle, spreading his hasbara…. how many times will you die, to claim reparation money again and again all taking sme holidays to bang your already defective brain against the wan-king wall and in typical kike fashion unsure ever increasing idiocy is spelled out n every comment you ??

      • Hezbollah was created with the express purpose of fighting the criminal zionist apartheid regime and nothing else. Hezbollah and so-called “Israel” have always been bitter enemies.

        So no, Jared Cohen/Ariel Sharon on the one hand and Sayyid Nasrallah on the other hand have nothing in common, and belong to opposite sides of the geopolitical spectrum.

  3. It’s high time US DoJ to SERIOUSLY investigate Killary Clinton on Patriot Act and treason grounds. If private companies were involved with terror gangs like Qaeda or the Brotherhood, investigation have to be held too, thus, it’s likely it was clearly on the DoS behalf.

    If Google becomes to cyber-security what Lockheed-Martin was as a defence contractor, USA is in DEEP trouble! They, with BAe, the perfect symbol of corruption and bribery and the main providers of failed over-expensive products on the military market!
    The only really efficient things they can build are cargo-aircraft, trainers and recon-planes. Look at their fighter-jets : P-80 was useless but the T-33 trainer made from it was OK. F-104 killed more western pilots than the commies, F-22 is a hangar queen, now they’re selling F-35 before tests are finished in other terms, they’re selling prototypes and test say these already +200 ‘prototypes’ will have to be fully rebuilt on the expenses of clients, only 20% are flyable and if DoD is actively backing the program with heavy PR, some tests are withheld until the number of 452 pre-sales is reached as, for sure, these will have the program to be cancelled and in such a case, the company will go bankrupt again and, being the #1 US defence contractor, US govt can’t let the company down, so will have to inject more taxpayers money into saving LM than endin buying 390 useless F-35 and having 62 sold to suckers, actually, they hope other suckers will buy so US govt will have to purchase less numbers before the program to be scraped in 2018 or 2019.
    USAF is already piling billions to extend F-15 and F-16 lives until 2048! As things are going, as nobody is willing to sell active stealth systems to Boeing for their Trump-wanted ‘Advanced Super-Hornet’, being conscious of the market to get in license-building, we may end seeing USAF, USN and USMC buying either Dassault’s Rafale, Mig-35/29K+PAK-FA or even J-31 from China although Chinese haven’t such active systems.
    Thanks to Neo-cons and Dem-Hawks geopolitical experiments added to NYSE tendencies to outsource industries abroad, nonetheless US economy is now behind EU, has already went under the Chinese one but has also felt behind Japan, which is much more concerning as EU or China are much more populated than USA while Japan only has 3rd of population.

    • No one will investigate anything in JewSA, cos Joo Jared Cohen was part of the deal, and he gave kosher dollars to the ghetto terrorist supporting state of sh1tsrael. Beside that the Goy in JewSA are too brainwashed by Schlomo Media as to rebel even when their tax money are squandered in useless projects and more aid to the ghetto state, by now most Goy came to think that merdsrael should be helped even at the expense of their Goys own life.Much blood needs to be shed before the Goy in JewSA wake up and even then they may never do so.


  5. Someone was telling me that their slogan was always “just be evil” but I seem to remember when it was “don’t be evil”. Then it changed to “don’t don’t be evil” before it changed to “just be evil” but he didn’t believe me. Perhaps I am imagining it.
