Orderly Transition


MUNICH/CAIRO/WASHINGTON (Own report) - Transatlantic consultations taking place at the Munich military conference are aimed at helping to prevent an uncontrolled collapse of the Mubarak regime. As was emphasized by the German chancellor and the US foreign minister in Munich, immediate elections would "plunge the country into chaos." A "power vacuum" must be avoided; President Mubarak must be kept in office for the time being. These declarations are in complete contradiction to the principal demands of the Egyptian opposition, who fear the despotism of Mubarak's followers and raise, as a prerequisite for any democratic transformation, the suppression of the clique kept in power by the West. The US "special envoy" to Egypt, Frank George Wisner Jr., was beamed to the Munich conference via satellite transmission. The name Wisner is linked to numerous violent operations throughout the world - Wisner Sr., directing a working relationship with former German Nazi agents on behalf of the US government. The objective was to insure western economic interests through comprehensive electoral manipulations and bringing governments subservient to NATO into power - if necessary through military means. The declarations in Munich and Wisner's role permit the anticipation of one of the biggest secret service maneuvers since 1948, to maintain western control over Egypt and the Arab world.

The ambiguity that has predominated German foreign policy since the beginning of the Egyptian uprising is currently subsiding in favor of strategic agreements with the USA, to insure Mubarak's presidency a while longer and prevent an immediate relaunch. According to the most recent official version, "free elections" can only take place, when it can be insured that "fundamentalists and radicals cannot come to power through the back door."[1] Agreeing with her foreign minister, Chancellor Merkel declared last weekend in Munich that "precipitated elections" are "wrong."[2] Instead, Berlin wants to "aid" in making an "orderly transition" [3] possible, meaning maintaining western control over the Egyptian constitutional process being claimed by the population on the streets of Cairo.


Because the collapse of the Mubarak regime came as a surprise, the foreign sponsors are lacking parties in a position to reform the constitution and with the capacity of successfully intervening in democratic elections. Even though German foreign policy had been particularly attempting to make contact with an Egyptian reserve power base, by way of its foundations (german-foreign-policy.com reported [4]), confidence in the success of repressing oppositional movements predominated in the West. An alternative governing palette, such as German foundations had promoted in Spain and Portugal decades ago [5] seemed fruitless. The mistake can only be corrected if the interval from now to the ballot box is as prolonged and the transformation as retarded as possible. The incumbent president, as the alleged legitimate constitutional body, will be useful during this process. New political personnel can be positioned, as long as Mubarak remains the formal head of state. A race against the clock has begun between western governments and the sovereign on the streets of Egypt.


Mubarak, according to the televised message to the Munich Conference by former US Ambassador to Cairo, Frank G. Wisner Jr., faces "the 'great task' of shaping and giving authority to the transition."[6] The conference participants understood Wisner's vision as a clear roadmap for providing the Cairo elite time for this process and masquerade. Because Wisner's recommendation was quoted in the press, the US government dissociated itself.[7] US President Obama had dispatched Wisner Jr. to Cairo at the beginning of the demonstrations, where he has kept open direct communications between the head of the Egyptian regime and Washington. Wisner Jr. had been entrusted with similar missions on various occasions, for example to Kosovo and to Iraq, where he sought to prevent "oppositional exile political personalities from obtaining a predominating influence in the new government."[8] Wisner holds leading positions of both official and alleged private US foreign policy organizations.[9] He succeeds his father as a notorious specialist for secret service subversive operations on every continent with special relations to Germany.


It was Wisner Sr., who, in the aftermath of 1945, had helped numerous German Nazi agents and other criminals having committed massive crimes, to flee prosecution, to be at the disposal of the USA for secret service missions.[10] Directing the "Organization Gehlen", later known as the Federal Intelligence Service (BND), West Germany's foreign intelligence agency, was among Wisner's duties in Wiesbaden. In 1948, the CIA's covert actions section, directed by Wisner, invested numerous millions for the manipulation of Italian elections, because the USA feared a possible victory of parties not to its liking. In 1953, Wisner's section ordered the overthrow of the Iranian government, because the democratically elected Prime Minister, Mossadegh, had nationalized the Iranian oil industry.[11] Thereafter came the military invasion of Guatemala as well as psychological warfare operations, which included several US false-flag propaganda radio stations in Munich, calling for the overthrow of Eastern European governments, an operation covered by Wisner's Munich-Pullach based "foster child," the BND.


The BND and the German security agencies complete the circle, laid out by the Wisner dynasty, which has repeatedly involved Mubarak. Under surveillance of the BND and Germany's domestic secret service, the Egyptian despot had visited Germany several times over the past few years, which is why; according to an anonymous suggestion last weekend he should again come to Germany for prolonged treatment. The pass thrown probably by "special envoy" Wisner from the US Embassy in Cairo, would be gladly caught by German politicians.[12] They are playing a distinguished role on the team in the network of international obstruction during the "orderly transition".
