OUT IN PLAIN SIGHT: THE EVIDENCE OF PARROT HAS BEEN OUT FOR YEARS
A series of tweets, Wednesday, by a Twitter poster named Nicholas Noe, a military veteran, aka @ScienceisMyMuse, is the third installment of an unfolding story by a Falconer, named Allan Harrow Parrot, who claims a number of things about his time in the Middle East, that deserve the scrutiny of investigation because the American people need to understand his controversial comments.
“FEATHERED COCAINE is not a wildlife documentary. It is a documentary about the international trade of falcons. After the trade of drugs, people and weapons, smuggling falcons is ranked No 4 in the list of the most profitable illegal trades,” Noe posted on Twitter, as an advocate for Parrot.
Parrot made a video Sunday with Noe, and with the father of slain Ty Woods, Charles Wood, where Parrot lays out his beliefs about the deaths of Osama bin Laden and also of Seal Team 6, which he claimed in the video were a result of betrayal by Democrat candidate for President, Joe Biden and the video included discussion of betrayal at Benghazi, by former Secretary of State Hilary R. Clinton and her aide, Leon Panetta.
The comments from Parrot in the video come at a very controversial time with the Presidential election 3 weeks away, nevertheless should be addressed. The story of the suspicious deaths of Seal Team 6 have been in the public consciousness for years, as something that appeared to deserve an investigation when it originally happened, with the parents of the fallen members of Seal Team 6 making a public inquiry for more information, only to be ignored.
Trump retweeted this about Noe on Wednesday:
The following continues the story, as it is unfolding, and we are learning new details added to old media stories.
From the comment section in the first article was an interesting concept, a reader reacted and posted to me” That fact is that the informer was an expert falconer is very important in the middle east. A sport of the wealthy and royalty, he would have been right in the middle of action. Not only that falcon smuggling follows the same areas of gun/drug smuggling. This informer would know everything.”
And then a 10 year old movie surfaces about the sport of Falconry, it’s place in Middle East Politics and Parrot’s role.
Interestingly, Fox News wrote about the movie in 2010 and updated the article in 2015.
“The idea that Bin Laden is in Iran got a strong boost recently with the premiere of a documentary called “Feathered Cocaine.” In it, Alan Parrot, the film’s subject and one of the world’s foremost falconers, makes a case that Bin Laden, an avid falcon hunter, has been living comfortably in Iran since at least 2003 and continues to pursue the sport relatively freely. He is relaxed, healthy and, according to the film, very comfortable.
To make his case, Parrot, president of the Union for the Conservation of Raptors, took two Icelandic filmmakers, Om Marino Arnarson and Thorkell S. Hardarson, into the secretive world of falconers. It’s a world in which some birds can sell for over $1 million, and in which the elite of the Middle East conduct business in luxurious desert camps where money, politics and terror intermingle.
Parrot, who was once the chief falconer for the Shah of Iran and who has worked for the royal families of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, still has extensive contacts in Iran and the falcon world. One of those contacts, described as a warlord from the north of Iran and disguised in a balaclava, reveals in the film that he has met Bin Laden six times on hunting trips inside Iran since March 2003. He says the Al Qaeda leader is relaxed and healthy and so comfortable that ‘he travels with only four bodyguards.”
HERE IS THE MOVIE:
Feathered Cocaine, Follow the Falcon find the Terrorist
“An Iranian who supplied falcon camps says he saw and met with Usama Bin Laden six times since 2003. His eyewitness accounts adds to a growing body of evidence that the world’s most wanted is living comfortably in Iran. (Feathered Cocaine/Markell Productions)“
Noe writes about the film, “After the trade of drugs, people and weapons, smuggling falcons is ranked No 4 in the list of the most profitable illegal trades. FEATHERED COCAINE reveals in an investigative way the contexts between the trade of falcons and historical events, where royal dynasties, institutions like the CIA and the KGB, the oil industry and Al Caida were involved.”
In the 2010 movie trailer, linked below, Parrot talked about his Falcons and his interactions with the very wealthy in the Middle East and what he describes as smuggling.
“This should not be taken away from us, Politicians Diplomats, Government Heads of State are involved with smuggling these buys, the best of which go for one million dollars,” Parrot is heard saying. A woman is heard saying, “It is not like these are just allegations, he has heavy documentation and no one is willing to act upon it. Why not? It’s money.”
“The entire 9/11 operation was not funded out of Bin Laden’s pocket it was not funded out of the Taliban, it was funded out of the gulf,” a man said. These are Al Qaeda’s board rooms. Falconry Camps are just just a metaphor for the way business is done in the Middle East and I was supplying and training the falcons, without which these camps could not exist. I have been pulled into a world of terrorism against my will and my interests. What do you do when you walk into a room with a terrorist and a flacon? You can report it, but what do you want to do when no one would listen?” Parrot asks.
A man is heard saying, “The CIA never wanted to listen to the one person who met with Bid Laden 5-6 times, that is astonishing.”
From the 2010 Fox News article come more explosive details about the background of Parrot, which have been known for at least a decade, leading many people to wonder why this has not been investigated further.
“Parrot’s story is supported in the documentary by former CIA agent Robert Baer, an outspoken critic of U.S. policy in the Middle East and of how the CIA is managed. Baer, the onetime Middle East operative on whom the movie Syriana is based, explains that while he was in the CIA, he used satellites to watch the camps and they proved to be one of the key ways Al Qaeda was funded. He underscored how important falconry is to the vastly wealthy, and how Parrot’s position gave him a unique lens on that world.
Parrot’s disclosures add another piece to a jigsaw puzzle that for years has fed suspicion that Bin Laden is living in Iran. Among the other clues are:
— Iran accepted 35 Al Qaeda leaders after the fall of the Taliban, despite the schism between Al Qaeda’s Sunni roots and the Shiite regime in Iran.
— In February 2009 the U.S. Treasury placed sanctions on several high-ranking Al Qaeda operatives working out of Iran and helping run the terror network.
— In 2004 author Richard Miniter, in his book “Shadow War,” wrote that two former Iranian Intelligence agents told him they had seen Bin Laden in Iran in 2003.”
Even The Atlantic validated Parrot’s story in their article: HERE
ABC’s George Stephanopoulos is not the only one wondering about the rumors that Osama bin Laden lives in Tehran. A documentary about the sport of falconry called Feathered Cocaine wanders a bit off topic to suggest that bin Laden is living comfortably with family in the north of Iran’s capital city. The Australia News’ Ed Barnes reports:
Alan Parrot, the film’s subject and one of the world’s foremost falconers, makes the case that bin Laden, an avid falcon hunter is pursuing the sport relatively freely in Tehran.
Parrot, who was once the chief falconer for the Shah of Iran and who has worked for the royal families of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, used his contacts in Iran to talk about bin Laden’s life there. One of those contacts, described as a warlord from the north of Iran and disguised in a balaclava, reveals in the film that he has met bin Laden six times on hunting trips inside Iran since March 2003.
His story deserves to investigated, no matter where it leads.
