Judge Napolitano & Alastair Crooke – Crocus Concert Attack is a Turning Point for Russia in Ukraine

by Judge Napolitano - Judging Freedom [4-1-2024 published].

(It is obvious that the Russian citizens have drawn a line about these terrorist incursions in their country and that they want more aggressive actions taken against the terrorists. This is already happening. It is obvious that Ukraine was involved in this Crocus attack and it is becoming more likely that MI6 in the UK and the CIA & Deep State in America were involved. Russia has already stepped up military strikes against key targets in Ukraine using hypersonic missiles that can't be defended against. Alastair Crooke has a good grasp of what is happening, yet he selects his words carefully as a result of his successful diplomatic background. Listen to the full interview for more insights into what is really happening. — RAD)

Alastair Crooke, Wikipedia Bio

Alastair Crooke started his career in London banking for a few years.

Crooke later worked for nearly 30 years in the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) under diplomatic cover in Northern Ireland, South Africa, Colombia, Pakistan and the Middle East. His early work included helping provide weapons to jihadists fighting the Soviets in Afghanistan and assisting in the Northern Ireland peace process.

In 1997, he became a security adviser to the EU special envoy to the Middle East, and operating out of the British Embassy in Tel Aviv was involved in British attempts to draw Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other Palestinian groups into the political process. He was involved in negotiations to end the Israeli army's siege of Yasser Arafat's compound in Ramallah and the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. He assisted the negotiation of several local truces between the Israelis and Palestinians during the early 2000s. Crooke had good contacts with the Israeli military and intelligence services.

He was a member of the Mitchell Committee into the causes of the Second Intifada in 2000.

In 2001, British ambassador to Israel Francis Cornish described him as "a person who worked with the security apparatuses of both sides. He went into action after they stopped trusting each other and developed a special skill to persuade them of the logic of things and to bridge the lack of confidence between them." He had a central role in establishing a Hamas ceasefire in 2002.

His MI6 background was exposed by an Israeli newspaper in 2002.

In September 2003, he was instructed to leave the Middle East, against his wishes, because of "personal security reasons" with a British embassy spokesman saying "We do think he's done a really difficult job in difficult conditions and has been outstanding at doing it."

His book Resistance: The Essence of the Islamist Revolution,[6] provides background on what he calls the "Islamist Revolution" in the Middle East, helping to offer strategic insights into the origins and logic of Islamist groups which have adopted military resistance as a tactic, including Hamas and Hezbollah.
