CIA 'INVESTIGATES'? 'TERRORISTS' ATTACK US EMBASSY IN ATHENS...
An explosive this morning hit the United States embassy in the Greek capital Athens, with little damage but leaving a lot of question marks. Nobody got injured. The day and night heavily by Marines guarded US embassy and all streets surrounding it normally are impossible to approach.
THE MAN WHO HAS THE ANSWERS AND IS NOT TALKING
by Henk Ruyssenaars - Foreign correspondent
FPF - Europe - Jan. 12th 2007 - The Greek news agency published about the attack on the US embassy in Athens as follows: A strong blast was reported shortly before 6 a.m. (4 a.m. GMT) at the US embassy in central Athens, with Greek authorities now investigating inside the compound, according to the US ambassador, Charles P. Ries.* Normally 'local authorities' are never allowed into an embassy area which is 'extra-territorial'.
What outside US embassy circles now is discussed is the question how anybody ever could come close enough to the US embassy at number 91 in the Vasilissis Sophias Avenue? Where for the past decades Greek special police, US Marines, guns, sniffer dogs and cameras have guarded the US embassy and the buildings around as some Fort Knox? Afraid of attacks by Greek and other people who for decades sincerely have disliked the US policy and what they have done to their country.
Which with a CIA coup and the Greek 'colonels junta' was turned into a colony and US/NATO base. It all looks as suspicious as is possible, since only people connected to the guarded US embassy can get close. And it can't be blamed on the 'November 17' (N-17) guerilla because the 'authorities' said they dismantled it.* But still the people keep saying that Bush is the 'Butcher of Baghdad' and the USA junta and it's war machine - including the UN/NATO's troops and mercenaries - represent the real terrorists. Which is totally correct of course.
The fact that US ambassador and Bush friend Ries after the small blast confirmed that the attack 'came from the outside' left the question unanswered how any person even could get close enough to throw a Molotov cocktail across the 3 meters high fence or carry around and shoot some kind of missile? "There is no justification for such an act of violence," Ries said and added that it was a "very serious" incident." Which may be used to further restrict what's left of civil liberties in this US colony with it's for freedom fighting people. [I've visited friends in Greece for decades. - HR]
It looks like the 'attack' on the US embassy as usual has been a 'false flag' operation by the US 'special ops forces' to divert global attention from the lost war in Iraq and the US junta's preparations to activate another 'false flag' operation to be able to start a nuclear war with Iran. Never telling the people they brainwash that Iran is very much bigger in population and surface.* The Gulf is full of US warships and those of collaborating countries, waiting for the US orchestrated 'incident' to blind and brainwash people. Like after the 9/11 inside job', another home made 'Pearl Harbor' as US commentator Roberts writes.*
THE SILENT CIA MAN
The man who has the answers and is not saying anything, is Thomas Countryman, at present the NSA/CIA liaison in Athens and as number 2 the 'policy officer' at the US embassy. Countryman learned most of his CIA tricks in the major CIA institute in the Arab world, situated in Tunisia in North Africa. As an independent foreign correspondent I had to know and knew also people at the US embassy, where I normally was invited during those years. And also of course by the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) with the by the Israeli Mossad poisoned Chairman Yasser Arafat and his doomed cooperators as well.*
Thomas Countryman was in Tunis in 1990/'91 and studied for a year at the CIA 'spy school' in Sidi Bou Said. He often ate his lunches at a small restaurant called 'La Bagatelle', on the other side of the street. I lived in Sidi Bou Said and very often lunched in 'La Bagatelle' too, in this very picturesque village on the beaches of the Mediterranean. [Sidi Bou Said Pics - Url.: http://tinyurl.com/vdhe9]
In his official bio at says "From 1988 to 1990, Mr. Countryman studied Arabic language and culture at the Department's Foreign Service Institute in Virginia for one year, followed by a year at the Institute's field school in Tunis." At the embassy in Athens his function is described as Deputy Chief of Mission. Meaning he is the man in charge of overall security.
THE CIA TRAINING CENTER
As one of the last foreign correspondents I was declared 'persona non grata' and forced to leave the country in July 1996. A week after I arrived on 7 November 1987, coup general and president Zine El Abedine Ben Ali, the present military ruler of Tunisia, with american help took the power from old and ailing president Habib Bourguiba. The country which is an american colony, had, and apparently still has, the biggest secret Middle East 'CIA Arabic training center' in coastal Sidi Bou Said, 17 kilometers from the capital Tunis. The 'school' is next door to the US ambassadors residence, and can be seen from the terrace during receptions. - Url.: http://tinyurl.com/585dc ]
According to Countryman's cv: "He has been Deputy Chief of Mission at the United States Embassy in Athens, Greece since September 2005. During Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm, he served as the Political-Military Officer at the American Embassy in Cairo, Egypt. From 1991 to 1993, he was the senior officer for reporting on political, security, and religious affairs within Egypt. In 1993 and 1994, Mr. Countryman worked in the State Department's Office of Counter-Terrorism, where he helped to achieve passage of a UN Security Council resolution on bringing to justice the suspects in the bombing of Pan Am flight 103."
THE BOMBING OF PAN AM FLIGHT 103
The last sentence again shows that Thomas Countryman is one of those fishy but mortal CIA characters. Even if Scotland Yard says that he and his CIA/FBI buddies falsified the evidence in the Lockerbie trial, which was a shame and mockery concerning human rights and justice, he 'helped' to bring the patsies to the Scottish court.

Apart from the absolutely mad US junta's preparations for an attack on Iran - and if they still can, later on oil rich and close Venezuela - there are other protests they want to stop. Groups in Greece and the rest of Europe have to be silenced because they decided two weeks ago that coming 9th-11th February they'll hold an 'International Gathering To Prepare The Protests Against The G8-Summit 2007' in Warsaw in Poland to discuss the actions against the G-8 meeting in Germany later this year.
In November last year, Greek riot police fired tear gas to disperse demonstrators marching to the US embassy in Athens who chanted slogans including "Bush the butcher, out of Iraq" and "The USA is the real terrorist". And Washington's junta abhors their very appropriate slogan: "To those who wants to dominate the world, the world responds RESISTANCE!"
But, as with a lot of irony can be said, it's good to know that the investigation is in the hands of qualified people...
Who are specially trained for this kind of things.
By the CIA...
