German Editor Reveals US/CIA Control of German Media — Then Dies
by Hadding Scott
UDO ULFKOTTE, a former editor (until 2003) of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung who revealed in his 2014 book Gekaufte Journalisten (to be published in translation later this year as Journalists for Hire: How the CIA Buys the News) was found dead a few days short of his 57th birthday, reportedly of heart failure, on 13 January 2017.
He wrote that German news media are directed to publish false reports that serve the foreign policy agenda of the government of the United States. They are both bribed for cooperation and punished for refusal to cooperate.
Of course there are questions about whether Ulfkotte really died of natural causes at only 57 years of age (and, perhaps not coincidentally, just one week before the empowerment of a differently minded U.S. administration). Against that suspicion one can cite the fact that Ulfkotte had a history of heart trouble. But this question is less important than what Ulfkotte wrote.
Paul Craig Roberts notes:
He published a courageous book in which he said that the CIA had a hand on every significant journalist in Europe, which gave Washington control over European opinion and reduced knowledge of and opposition to Washington’s control over European heads of state. Essentially, there are no European governments independent of Washington. [Global Research, 15 January 2017]
Since controlling the news media is equivalent to controlling the government, Ulfkotte’s book amounts to documentation that Germany today is a vassal of the United States.
It is important to keep in mind that the CIA is principally an instrument of the current administration. It is not a coincidence that Germany commits racial suicide during the most overtly anti-White U.S. presidential administration in history, one that has even encouraged violence domestically against police and against White people generally.
In foreign policy, however, it is well known that the U.S.A., which lords over Germany, is in turn a vassal of the Israel Lobby. Ulfkotte has revealed that German news media were required to publish false war propaganda in service to the Zionist agenda of régime change, in particular an accusation in 2011 that Muammar Qadhafi was building a poison gas factory in Libya. Recently, Ulfkotte said, there has been a campaign of false reporting to drum up a war against Russia, for the obvious reason that Russia interfered with the Zionist agenda of régime change in Syria.
The new Trump administration will likely bring a reversal or at least a halt to such trends, in Europe as well as in the U.S.A.
Ulfkotte said one thing in his 2014 interview with RT that was incorrect. He said that it was “known all over the world” that in 1988 Kurdish people were gassed by the Iraqi government (at Halabja, in northern Iraq). This is an example of a story that is widely “known” without being true. This false rumor was originally propagated by the Iranians in March 1988 (after they themselves had accidentally gassed some Iraqi Kurds), then taken up and perpetuated by Zionist news media from September 1988 onward, when the war between Iraq and Iran had ended. (The preeminent source for debunking the gassed-Kurds accusation is Stephen C. Pelletiere, a professor emeritus at the U.S. Army War College.)
The gassing incident that Ulfkotte personally observed in July 1988 involved, he says, “hundreds or thousands” of gassed Iranians at Zubeidat (in southern Iraq). This would have been a military use of poison gas against invaders, rather than gratuitous gassing of a civilian population.
It seems that Ulfkotte also still believed in the old anti-German, Jewish accusation of gas chambers.
