Highlights 20th June 2006

ACTIONABLE INTELLIGENCE

GLOBAL

1. The Muckraker Report attempted to secure a reference to the U.S. government authenticating the Bin Laden "confession video", to no avail. However, it is conclusive that the Bush Administration and U.S. Congress, along with the dead stream media, played the video as if it was authentic. So why doesn't the FBI view the "confession video" as hard evidence? After all, if the FBI is investigating a crime such as drug trafficking, and it discovers a video of members of a drug cartel opening talking about a successful distribution operation in the United States, that video would be presented to a federal grand jury. The identified participants of the video would be indicted, and if captured, the video alone would serve as sufficient evidence to net a conviction in a federal court. So why is the Bin Laden "confession video" not carrying the same weight with the FBI? ......

2. Atleast ISRO has a website. India's intelligence agency (that's RAW, if you didn't know. I'm sure you know its the CIA for the US and perhaps even that its the MI6/SIS for the UK) does not even seem to have one. Perhaps it is so secret they thought it unwise to put one up. Unfortunately, we know more about American intelligence and other agencies than we know about their Indian counterparts. I know how much effort I have expended in trying to find out more about the RAW. Can we atleast get a glimpse of what kind of intelligence capabilities we have as a nation? Perhaps even what we had 10 years ago? ......

3. According to Paul Joseph Watson, on PrisonPlanet.com, in "Pentagon jettisons U.S. agent provocateur al-Zarqawi," as posted on the GlobalResearch website June 9, "Irrefutable evidence confirms that Zarqawi was a U.S. agent provocateur used to sell the necessity of the war in Iraq. Preceding the release of the recent Zarqawi video tape, the Pentagon embarked on a propaganda push to magnify the role and influence of Zarqawi in Iraq-reinforcing the 'al-Qaeda in Iraq' brand myth and pinning the increasingly unpopular occupation on the wider 'war on terror.' Transcripts of meetings between the Joint Chiefs of Staff discussed turning Zarqawi into a caricature and making him appear 'more important than he really is.' The same documents directly which stated the false promotion of Zarqawi included marking the U.S. 'home audience' as one of the targets of a broader propaganda campaign. ......

4. In the late 60's, as India's Research and Analysis Wing was taking shape, their first significant clandestine operation, motivated by the surprise incursion into Indian territory by Chinese forces in 1962, was an elaborate attempt to understand the Chinese character. What they found was interesting and powerful knowledge. They found a devious people, fanatically devoted to their racial identity, with unquestioning obedience to their central authority [they uncovered later that post-Mao, China had been taken over by the Shanghai Triad]. They found that the Han diaspora, regardless of geography, reported to their rulers in mainland China. Most importantly, they found that the diaspora was essentially engaged in espionage and subversion, wherever they were. RAW shared their learnings with the American FBI in the early seventies. Within months, the FBI, cross-validated these findings in their own country. According to reliable sources, since then, nearly 90% of FBI's budget has been deployed on surveilling the Han around the world in association with RAW. In the late 80s, these agencies, having seen it all vis-a-vis the Han Chinese, embarked on a massive counter-intelligence operation........

5. The house of Saud has occupied two of the holiest sites for Muslims, Mecca and Medina, for far too long. If they were actually protecting, promoting and preserving our religious heritage, that would be fine, but the Saudis, following their own puritanical version of Islam, have razed all monuments associated with the Prophet Muhammad and his family. The same people who had the temerity to incite Muslims to violent reactions to the infamous Danish cartoon have no compunction about destroying our Islamic heritage and brazenly promoting a culture of hate against anyone who disagrees with them. The United States has known for decades that the Saudis discriminate against women and minorities and spout hatred against anyone who does not follow their misogynist and exclusivist brand of faith. They openly mark Shias and Sufis as being waajib-ul'qatal (acceptable to be killed).......

6. It appears that Mr Barclay thinks India is distracted with its projects along Bangladesh border. That is simply a piece of fiction. It is a cunning piece of Indian propaganda. India has some 700,000 soldiers fighting its own Indians wanting to break up the country left behind by Britain; and that has been going on for most of the last 60 years away from Western media and Human Rights attention. As an example: small people of 2 million like the Christian Naga have suffered 200,000 killings at the hand of Indian Army but no one in the world cares to give it any coverage. There are over 20 different civil-wars being fought out all over India, excluding Kashmir. Even Africa or Colombia has nothing comparable, except that the world media have chosen to give India the image of Mahatma Gandhi! India's relationship with the entire South Asian region is poor and it has nothing to do with religion. Hindu Nepal distrusts India. India setup the Hindu Tamils against the Buddhist Sinhalese in the civil-war in Sri Lanka. As you know the racial and religious civil war is once again brewing in that country. The border along Burma has been at war for most of the last 60 years. Despite all the dirty propaganda Bangladesh has remained largely at peace, compared to the region, even though India has armed various terrorist groups over the last 30 years. Bangladesh is India's second largest trading partner after the USA. But the trade has always been unequal. India has used its elements to sabotage Bangladesh economy time after time. India uses the international media to plant stories against Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Pakistan, China and Bhutan. India is a source of instability in Asia. It has occupied Buddhist nation of Sikkim.......

7. A military takeover or even an enhanced role for the men in uniform is a constant apprehension in Bangladesh. It is a reminder of the long phases of martial law in the erstwhile East Pakistan and since 1971 in independent Bangladesh. Not surprisingly, DeSoto was asked if the US had any role to play in 'protecting' democracy in Bangladesh from any 'extra-constitutional move in the wake of failure of political leadership' to resolve their election disputes. His reply: 'I trust that the people of Bangladesh will reject that option and work hard to protect its long tradition of democracy.' All this can hardly be taken as an attempt by Bangladeshis to win accolades from the West. But the fact is that there is widespread apprehension about growing activities of Islamist militants. Especially since the present government of Prime Minister Khaleda Zia, having an influential Islamist component, took office immediately after 9/11. The last four years have been a trying time for religious minorities and political opponents......

8. Bangladesh as a nation has deeper problems than bomb attacks, drugs and corruption. Social degeneration does not happen in a day and unfortunately there is no quick fix for the same. Children as well as everyone living in a society learn from the society the most.A society embedded with moral values is surely expected to pass on its values to the youth who shape the future. The cultural invasion in the name of technological advancement through satellites has inflicted even the most remote areas. It is no more a cause for concern that parents and children watch soaps regularly which teaches probably nothing more than adulterous relations. Admittedly there are many channels which informs on technological issues and news of the globe. The importance of these cannot be agreed more. At the same time there are several channels that affect the deepest fabric of our society by staging indirect ridicules and showing irrelevance of most important of our values like the institution of marriage, respecting elders, modesty and values of chastity. Unfortunately, these channels are more popular. In the present world politics the institution of popular opinion is generally venerated, probably this particular example gives insight to the saying - what is popular is not always right......
Vision For Bangladesh: Tackling Hegemonic Foreign and Economic Policy

9. Recently Mohammad Humayun Kabir, the Deputy Commissioner of the Khagrachari Hill district, the Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT), has published a book, "Khagrachari 2001-2005", in which he describes the indigenous peoples of the CHT as 'infiltrators' or 'settlers', 'anti-Bengali', 'wild and uncivilized tribes' and so on, and purposefully sent it to various Ministers, people representatives, government officials and offices of donor agencies in Bangladesh. The Parbatya Chattagram Jana Samhati Samiti (PCJSS) strongly condemns and protests the book and the behaviors of the Deputy Commissioner, which breach the rules and decorum of a public office like one being held by him.The book published in English from the office of the Deputy Commissioner in April 2006 portrays the indigenous peoples living in the CHT region since time immemorial and even before the arrival of any ethnic Bengalis as 'outsiders' and 'anti-Bengali'. It is politically motivated. In addition to that, it presents some wrong and distorted statistics and information designed to provoke and perpetuate communal violence and to denigrate the indigenous peoples by endowing with various humiliating epithets.........

10. The exchange of fire ensued when BSF patrol teams from Chhiladana camp intruded into Bangladesh territory crossing the river for kidnapping some Bangladeshi fishermen. In the face of challenge from the BDR guards, the retreating BSF men opened fire provoking the BDR to retaliate. Following the incident, the BSF increased the number of troops with heavy arms prompting the BDR to remain on alert and creating tension unnecessarily in the border. The BSF continued its provocative activities in the border areas despite repeated assurances given at various levels including higher political levels and engaged itself in killing Bangladeshi nationals at regular intervals. All these sad incidents came out as news items in the Bangladesh media regularly quoting local witnesses and BDR as sources. But the Indian High Commission in Dhaka came out surprisingly with a press release next day and tried to put the blame on the BDR for the incident. The High Commission also had a swipe at the Bangladesh media saying it had been making 'faulty and sensational reports' over the border problems and made a request to contact it 'to get true picture'. A Foreign Ministry spokesman, however, dismissed the Indian High Commission's allegation and said the BSF killed as many as 52 innocent unarmed Bangladeshi nationals in past six months since November last year despite the fact that civilians would not be outright shot dead under any circumstances as agreed to at Indo-Bangladesh meetings held at various levels......
Unnecessary border tension

11. The floods in Assam have reportedly taken a serious turn displacing hundreds of thousands of people from their homes. All the rivers in the Indian state of Tripura, close to Bangladesh, are flowing well above the danger level and flood waters are fast hurtling downwards. This means that appearance of a flood in more areas of Sylhet and other parts of Bangladesh may be imminent. While there is nothing that can be done to prevent the floods in the short run, everything must be done to limit the damage caused every year by a natural calamity of this nature.......
Bangladesh: Preparing(?) for floods

12. It is learnt that the scrutiny of the draft is almost complete and it would be sent to the concerned ministries for their approval. Earlier Law Minister Barrister Moudud Ahmed told the newsmen that about 5,000 foreign nationals including 980 from Myanmar and India are now staying in different jails in Bangladesh. "Some of them have already completed their jail terms but they are not allowed to leave the country due to the absence of an extradition treaty," the minister said.IG (Prisons) Brigadier General Zakir Hossain said, "We could not send them to their respective countries in the absence of an extradition treaty." Around 200 criminals including top terrors are staying in India illegally. Dhaka has also handed Delhi a long list of wanted criminals who have taken refuge in Kolkata and other parts of India to avoid arrest in Bangladesh. But the Indian government is yet to take necessary action in this regard, according to the sources......

13. Experts observed that India would face a devastating flood this year, as a result India could anytime open dams built in the upstream to avoid flooding without informing Bangladesh.The nation would face unprecedented flood if India does not inform before opening their dams, so Bangladesh requested India to inform the government before opening of Indian dams so that Bangladesh could take preparation to face the flood, sources said. Bangladesh repeatedly requested India to follow the flood forecasting and warning agreement but India did not bother to abide by the agreement, sources said.......
Delhi asked not to open dams without notice to Dhaka

14. The Bangladesh boom defies some of development theory's central tenets. For decades, experts have identified political stability and effective governance as critical prerequisites for economic takeoff. But this lowland nation of 145 million is making tangible progress largely without them. Bangladesh now leads South Asia in most social-welfare indicators—including female literacy and poverty reduction. Its fertility rate is near replacement level. And Bangladesh is the only South Asian country on track to meet its United Nations-mandated Millennium Development Goals of reducing poverty by half by 2015. "When I go to India or Pakistan from Bangladesh, people ask, 'What is it you do, cook up all your statistics?' " says Muhammad Yunus, founder of microlender Grameen Bank. "They ask, 'Why are we falling behind when we're doing the right things, while you are doing the wrong things but getting the right answer?' " .There's no pat explanation for Bangladesh's unlikely success.......
Bullish on Bangladesh

15. Amid allegations of bid manipulation, Bangladesh Navy is purchasing six high-speed patrol boats for Tk 14.5 crore although it procured the same for only Tk 9 crore last year, competent sources said. Each of the boats should measure 12 metres in length, have air-conditioned cabins and be equipped with light machine gun (LMG) posts, global positioning system, radar and other sophisticated equipment to help the navy conduct anti-smuggling operations in the deep sea. Sources said the boats designed by Valiant company of Portugal are yet to be manufactured. But they do not meet the navy's length requirement and also do not show any LMG post. The comptroller general of audit objected to this procurement last week, asking the Directorate General Defence Purchase (DGDP) why the navy should purchase the six boats at Tk 14.5 crore when it had purchased the same for Tk 9 crore last year. The DGDP finance department has asked the naval authorities to justify its decision....

16. The Bangladesh government, according to the plan, will construct a 43km stretch of the road in the first phase, of which 20km will be in Bangladesh and 23km in Myanmar, at a cost of Tk 163.49 crore.Of the total sum, Tk 94 crore will be spent on the 23km road from Taungbro to Bawli Bazar inside Myanmar along with two bridges and 90 culverts.Later, in the second phase, another 110km stretch from Bawli Bazar to Kyautaw in Myanmar will be constructed at an estimated cost of Tk 770.26 crore.Yangon has been unwilling and non-cooperative despite repeated requests from Dhaka since September 2005 for finalising a framework of the agreement on the road link.It has maintained that it is unable to finance the Myanmar portion of the road and that the project is not on its priority list......

17. Presumably because I'm Jewish and write about India, I received an invitation to a 'Jewish-Indian Reception' held earlier this year at Columbia University in New York. "Did you know that Jews have lived in India for over 2000 years without any signs of Anti-Semitism?" the invitation began. "Did you know that annual bi-lateral trade between India and Israel reached $2.7 billion this past year? Interested in learning more about the historical, cultural, and political connections and similarities between Jewish and Indian Americans? Join us for a night of great speakers ..." These speakers included the Indian Consul-General, the Israeli Deputy-Consul General and Congressman Gary Ackerman. The event was organised by a pro-Israel student group called LionPAC, with support from the South Asian Law Students Association, among others. It offers a microcosm of the burgeoning India-Israel-US axis, a phenomenon supporters of the Palestinian cause need to be more aware of......

18. A top former intelligence official has said India would have the capacity to make about 50 nuclear warheads a year as it would be able to retain six reactors outside safeguards envisaged under the India-US nuclear agreement. "Under the deal, India shall retain six unsafeguarded reactors and shall have the capability of producing nearly 50 nuclear warheads per year," J K Sinha, former Additional Secretary in the Research and Analyses Wing (R&AW) of the Cabinet Secretariat, has said. Sinha said the assurance of supply of nuclear fuel from the US as well as the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) would free India's existing capacity to produce highly enriched uranium and plutonium for its nuclear weapons programme.....

19. The state on Tuesday in its petition defended its ban on Dwikhandito, terming her writings as "pornographic" and "perverted". Outside the court, Jamiat-i-Hind activists said Taslima was "immoral". They demonstrated during the hearing, saying she should be told to quit India immediately. Taslima had gone there to back social activist Sujato Bhadra, who has filed a petition challenging the ban on Dwikhandito. A three-judge special Bench of justices DK Seth, AK Basu and Soumitra Pal commenced hearing. Opening his argument, Bhadra's advocate Joymalya Bagchi said: "Similarexpressions as the ones used in the two pages of allegedly offending passages are present in Taslima's earlier writings, which have not been banned and are available in the market. Therefore, banning Dwikhandito is an illegal exercise of power to suit the convenience of the state."......

20. To bolster the navy's reconnaissance capabilities, India is to buy more IL-38 spy planes from Russia and the decks for the supply would be cleared during Naval Chief Admiral Arun Prakash's week-long visit to Moscow starting on Monday. Navy plans to buy two more IL-38 maritime reconnaissance aircraft from Russia to strengthen its depleted spy plane fleet hit by crashes of the IL-38 aircraft.The new planes to be purchased would be upgraded versions of the aircraft fitted with advanced Sea Dragons suits.......
India to buy more spy planes from Russia

21. Cross-border terrorism is also a cause for worry in Tripura. The state is surrounded by Bangladesh on three sides, which confers on the terrorists an enormous operational advantage. The NLFT and the ATTF together have as many as 51 hideouts in Bangladesh. The NLFT's Biswamohan group has 32 hideouts, the NLFT's Nayanbasi faction has three and the outlawed ATTF has 16 camps spread across Sylhet, Habigunj and Laulavi Bazar districts and the Chittagong Hill Tracts of Bangladesh. The Tripura state government has reportedly sent to New Delhi a list of militant camps in Bangladesh, with maps and other relevant details, but the matter is yet to be taken up with Dhaka. Thus Indian diplomacy has a sensitive task to perform. Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar is very critical of both Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee and Home Minister L K Advani for not mounting pressure on the Bangladeshi government to dismantle the bases of the banned militant outfits. Similarly, the Assam government is asking New Delhi to pressure the Bhutan government to dismantle camps of Bodo militants in that country.........

22. Pointing out that there are 918 lady officers in the Army, Gen. Sujlana said the Vice Chief of Army Staff S. Pattabhiraman's reported statement that the Army can do without women was quoted "out of context and misconstrued." What he meant was that the Army's preference in the combat units was for gentlemen officers over lady officers. "We have made it a point to put them in services [such as ordnance, supply, medical] but in combat units such as armoured and artillery, the preference is for men officers," clarified Gen. Sujlana. Asked about the suicide by Susmita Chakraborthy on Thursday due to stress and disinclination to perform certain duties as she felt she was better qualified, he said the rigours of Army life as compared to civilian occupations are tougher but "we are ensuring that new recruits are being adequately trained to withstand the rigours of army life." ....
Indian Army for more women officers

23. It is right for Ulfa to attack the Indian security forces for violation of human rights and their intimidation of the public. But Ulfa is outraged, a reflection of its own duplicity, whenever anyone raises a voice against the organisation's own lawless ways, the killings of innocents and the most vulnerable, attacks on public property (which harm ordinary people, because it is the system upon which they depend) and refusal to acknowledge that they can only legitimise their demands if the people of Assam support them. They have never sought a mandate from the public in the way possible in a democratic (though flawed system): of an election. They have boycotted, intimidated, attacked and otherwise tried to disrupt democratic exercises and mobilisation. This shows their mind-set although they conveniently blame, in a language which is as archaic as the Soviet Union, that it is the Indian colonial state which forces them to do so........
Ulfa outbursts meet media counter-blast

24. China and India have agreed to reopen border trade at the historic Nathu-la Pass after more than 40 years, a symbol of rapprochement between Asian giants who fought a Himalayan war in 1962.The pass, at an altitude of around 4,300 meters, or 14,100 feet, will open on July 6, the official Chinese press agency, Xinhua, reported Monday, and handle trade between the tiny northeast Indian state of Sikkim and southern Tibet."The reopening of border trade will help end economic isolation in this area and play a key role in boosting market economy there," Hao Peng, vice chairman of Tibet, said in comments carried by Xinhua. The agreement to reopen the ancient Silk Road route was the latest sign of warming relations between the world's most populous countries. China now recognizes Sikkim, a former Buddhist kingdom, as part of Indian territory, and although much of the 3,500-kilometer, or 2,175-mile, border between China and India remains disputed, the two countries agreed last year to settle the issue politically. ......

25. The outfit has over 35 separate modules spread across the country, sources said. Jaki-ur-Rehman Laqvi is the commander-in-chief of Lashkar but the operations in India are under the control of Abu-Alkama. Lashkar has its operational bases in Nepal, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, India and Pakistan. A military source here stated that nearly 100 terrorists in seven separate batches have crossed over to Jammu and Kashmir in May and are based in north and south Kashmir districts of Kupwara and Anantnag. And the fact was substantiated when on June 6, an infiltration bid was thwarted, eight out of 12 terrorists were killed along LoC in Machail sector of Kupwara.................
India: Terrorists out to create mayhem

26. Hiteswar's Ahom ethnicity had helped him in establishing equation with Ahom Muttock (Thai-Ahom origin) leaders like Arabindo Rajkhowa, Golap Barua, Prodip Gogoi and Paresh Baruah. "Some chilling details of Hiteswar's linkages with the breakaway AASU leaders, who cobbled up with ULFA, were narrated to me by Samiran way back in 1981 during one of his clandestine visits to Delhi. At that point of time, I had treated his story as another application of dirty tricks by the inner coterie of Indira Gandhi," Dhar wrote. "That was the salient point of time when Indira Congress leaders like Hiteswar Saikia and Lalit Doley extended tacit support to the ULFA faction of the AASU and AAGSP. They blindly tried to use the Ahom nationalist card against the Muslims. Hiteswar did not do anything new. The Congress Party has the distinguished history of supporting divisive forces in the North East to its political advantage," he said........

27. Well, India can wait it out — and hope that a growing economy will create conditions that will make terrorism unattractive. However, even if this approach were to succeed, it will not be before many more people die. But there is another way to ensure Baruah and Rajkhowa are in India during ceasefire and negotiations. And that is for the Indian government to ask them to come. The next time the Indian government considers further negotiations, it must make them contingent on the ULFA leadership's return to India, even if this means offering a moratorium on all criminal cases pending against them. Such a measure may upset the state's political equations, but may well be what is needed to close a long and terrible chapter in its history. And who said peace can be had without eadership? A truth and reconciliation process is desirable, and may even be inevitable. The duration of the moratorium can be linked to the renunciation of violence.......
Assam: ULFA’s long tail

28. China and India have signed an agreement to re-open an ancient trade route which was closed 44 years ago . Border trade will now resume from 6 July through the Himalayan pass of Nathu La, 4,000 metres (14,000 feet) above sea level. The Nathu La pass provided a crucial link in the ancient Silk Road through which Indo-Tibetan trade was conducted for centuries.....
India-China trade link to reopen

PAKISTAN

29. One reason for the confused state of Pakistan could be the fact that everyone practically hates everyone else. There may be a "consensus" of hatred about one person or entity but the haters may be filled with mutual fear and loathing too. Such a consensus would therefore be not very useful for national direction. This "tower of babel"-like situation could quickly put off a foreign sympathiser whose attention span is limited to the proportion of Pakistan's importance as a state. Only people scared of Pakistan could be interested in its complex internal dissension. One should be looking, not for 'lovers', whose affection is innocent and therefore fragile; but 'haters' of Pakistan, whose fears are sure to be deep-rooted enough to focus on our plight over the longer term.......

NEPAL

30. Prachanda speaks passionately about the need to dismantle feudal structures to create a proletarian society but he has remained smugly quiet about his own elevation as a demi-god by his supporters. The rich and ruling elite in Kathmandu, who the Maoists view as feudal and want to destroy, has been left untouched throughout the war, whereas poor and ordinary villagers have suffered. The war has caused ordinary Nepalis enormous suffering. After seeing Prachanda's pictures, a teacher at a village school recently told me: "Prachanda looks very well-fed. In fact, his healthy diet is bought from the money extorted from poor people like myself. "Or else, where does he get the money from?" For Prachanda India was an expansionist foe. Out of the first nine points in his 40-point demands submitted to the government in 1996, seven were directed against India. However, it has been an established fact that during much of the insurgency both Prachanda and his deputy, Baburam Bhattarai, have spent time in India. There have been credible reports, some carried by the BBC, that Indian authorities have covertly co-operated with the Maoists at times. That explains why after the insurgency started they have rarely been critical of India......
Prachanda - hero or villain?

31. A more long-term controversy concerns the future of the monarchy. Prime Minister GP Koirala pointedly said this week that he hoped a ceremonial monarchy would remain. The future of the monarchy is still unclear The Maoists fiercely reject this notion; even some of Mr Koirala's own party colleagues denounced his remark. Weapons also present a thorny problem. Many Nepalis would like to see complete disarmament before the constituent assembly elections. The Maoists and the government seem to have settled for the rebel and army weapons to be under international supervision. Each side is already accusing the other of violating a recently signed code of conduct by continuing to wield weapons in public. And violence continues, although on a much reduced scale. The Maoists in particular are being accused of it. Earlier this week, a schoolboy they admitted abducting near Kathmandu was found dead. A respected human rights group recently concluded the rebels had also killed two brothers, kidnapped earlier. Army soldiers, meanwhile, were alleged to have beaten up ordinary people and Maoist party workers in remote western Nepal......
