ALEX WRONG: 9/11 TRUTHERS BELIEVE IT WAS AN INSIDE JOB – NOT A SAUDI-ONLY JOB!

IT WAS THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION WHO ALLOWED THE SAUDIS TO FLY OUT OF THE US WHILE ALL AIRCRAFT IN THE COUNTRY WERE LOCKED DOWN. THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION ALLOWED THE 5 MOSSAD DANCING ISRAELIS TO LEAVE THE USA. 9/11 WAS A MAJOR EFFORT BY OUR SECRET GOVERNMENT AND IT’S ALLIES.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US links 9-11 to every nation it wants to invade. First it was Afghanistan, then Iraq (after which George W. Bush admitted on TV Iraq had nothing to do with 9-11).

Saudi Arabia now finds themselves in the croshairs of the US war machine!

To find out if you are being lied to, look for what should be there and isn't, and what isn't there is a motive for Saudi Arabia to attack the United States on 9-11. Saudi Arabia has grown very rich off of the United States with the petrodollar deal. And they have invested much of that money in the United States. Why would Saudi Arabia do anything that would risk having the United States confiscate that money or end the lucrative petrodollar arrangement? Especially without some compelling reason? And as the Saudi threat confirms, if Saudi Arabia really did want to harm the United States they would not need to crash airplanes into buildings, all they need do is take their investment funds back and the US economy would implode. The resulting economic devastation would make the loss of the World Trade Towers seem like a minor inconvenience in comparison! And it would be perfectly legal for Saudi Arabia to do so.

And let us be honest, it wasn't Saudis who were arrested for cheering and clapping while the towers came crashing down, it was Mossad agents. Israeli owned companies like Odigo received advance warning of the attack. Saudi companies did not.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice (or thrice) shame on me!

Obama Embraces the Bomb

President Obama hosted an international conference a couple of weeks ago on measures to tighten controls on the spread of nuclear weapons and possible theft of nuclear materials by terrorist groups. This harks back to an early theme of his Presidency whereby he set the goal of a sharp reduction of the world’s inventories of these weapons. Yet, a few months back Obama announced a $1 trillion program to upgrade the American nuclear arsenal. What’s going on ?

Brooklyn man busted for bribing cops to expedite gun permit applications as part of probe into NYPD corruption

Lichtenstein, who has his own gun permit, is a member of the Borough Park Shomrim, the Jewish volunteer patrol. He was arrested Sunday at his Pomona, Rockland County, home.

He would charge members of the Orthodox community between $5,000 and $25,000 to expedite their gun permit requests, community sources said.

The process typically takes at least a year and candidates with low-level criminal offenses are almost always nixed.

One applicant approved for a gun permit in 2013 had a long criminal history, the feds said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, gun control is only for the goyim!

George H.W. Bush attends Wake For Slain Waco ATF Agent, Says He Was Killed By "weird cultists"

In 1995 Bush angrily resigned from the NRA and wrote "I was outraged when, even in the wake of the Oklahoma City tragedy, Mr. Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of N.R.A., defended his attack on federal agents as "jack-booted thugs." To attack Secret Service agents or A.T.F. people or any government law enforcement people as "wearing Nazi bucket helmets and black storm trooper uniforms - wanting to "attack law abiding citizens - is a vicious slander on good people.
... In 1993, I attended the wake for A.T.F. agent Steve Willis, another dedicated officer who did his duty. I can assure you that this honorable man, killed by weird cultists, was no Nazi.

The Battles of Lexington and Concord, 1775

By April 1775, reconciliation between England and the thirteen colonies had failed. Two months earlier, Parliament had declared Massachusetts to be in a state of rebellion, and on April 14 General Thomas Gage received secret orders from England to suppress the rebels. On the night of April 18, Gage sent 700 British soldiers to Concord to seize patriot supplies there. At dawn the British reached the town of Lexington, just east of Concord, where they found seventy American militiamen waiting for them on the village green.

Warned of the British troops’ movements, the Lexington patriots had assembled in an effort to halt British progress toward Concord. Both sides stood their ground, and in a tense moment, a shot was fired. Though it’s unclear which side, British soldier or American patriot, fired that first “shot heard ’round the world,” history remembers it as the start of the American Revolutionary War.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

On this date, April 19th, in 1775, we kicked out the last batch of tax-happy bastards who wouldn't listen to the people.

The Oklahoma City Bombing - Were there additional explosive charges and additional bombers?

There are many problems with the official story of the bombing. Let's start with McVeigh's whereabouts on
April 17.


bordercolor="#111111" cellspacing="0">

McVeigh had been filmed by a security camera at a nearby McDonald's 24 minutes before the
time stamped on the truck rental agreement, wearing clothes that did not match either of the men seen at
Elliott's.

There is no plausible explanation of how he traveled the mile and a quarter from McDonald's to
the rental agency, carless and alone as he claims, without getting soaked in the rain.

height="144">

Webmaster's Commentary: 

On this day, April 19th, 1995, the Murrah Federal Building was destroyed in a massive bomb blast. Blamed on domestic terrorists, the explosion was used to push forward Bill Clinton's anti-terror agenda involving more warrantless spying on law-abiding Americans.

The bombing was very convenient for the government, because Congress was about to hold hearings on the Waco Massacre, and the BATF had assembled all the documentation of that event in the Murrah building, where it was destroyed, effectively ending the inquiry.

FLASHBACK - WACO - Who Shot First?

Contrary to the image of a dangerous gun nut put out in the media in an effort to justify the burning of the church, official BATF records prove that David Koresch was rather harmless, so much so that the BATF agents invited him to go shooting with them just 9 days before they raided the church. Koresch supplied the ammunition. The BATF agents allowed Koresch to try out their weapons.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

On this day, April 19th, in 1993, the FBI gassed a church full of women and children to death with a poison gas that is illegal to use on enemy troops in time of war. This was done to cover up a major botch-up by the BATF, which had sought to salvage their already damaged public image with a spectacular raid on the Branch Davideans, who funded their religious commune with a gun repair business. The BATF had hoped to garner headlines with a spectacular show of seized weapons, even though all the guns owned by the Branch Davideans were legally owned. But all the working guns were absent from the church that day, away at a gun show. All that was left were guns waiting repairs or being stripped for parts, and were still in storage at the church after the fire.

Branch Davidean leader David Koresch was tipped off to the coming raid by one of the reporters invited along by the BATF, and opened the front door of the church, intending to allow the BATF to inspect the weapons owned by the church as part of their gun repair business. But someone shot Koresch in the groin the moment he opened the door, leading to the standoff.

Four former Clinton bodyguards, Steve Willis, Robert Williams,,Conway LeBleu, and Todd McKeehan, had all been transferred to the BATF just before the raid and died of execution-style gunshots to their left temples. Paul Wilcher, an attorney who was investigating Waco, was found dead on June 22, 1993. Carlos Ghigliotti, a thermal imaging expert hired by the House Government Reform Committee to review tape of the siege at Waco, Texas, was found dead on April 28, 2000.

Flashback: MISLEADING NYC ELECTION MAILER COULD BE BAD NEWS FOR TRUMP, SANDERS

New Yorkers will go to the polls on April 19 to cast their votes in a primary that is of crucial importance to both parties. For the Republicans, it could make the difference in Donald Trump’s quest to win the necessary delegates ahead of the convention.

Yet, tens of thousands of newly registered voters in New York City may not show up to vote. Why? Because of the vague wording on a postcard.

The card from the New York CIty Board of Elections informed voters that “the” primary would be held in September.

NEW YORK VOTERS FACE OBSTACLES AND IRREGULARITIES

Thanks to the arcane voter registration rules of New York’s closed primary and various mess-ups by election officials, a lot of New York voters might be in for a long day.

One major problem is that the Empire State’s primary is closed, which means that only New Yorkers specifically registered as either a Democrat or Republican will be allowed to vote. Even worse, New Yorkers who wanted to switch their party affiliation — for example, from the Working Families Party, a force in New York progressive politics that backs Bernie Sanders, to Democrat to vote for the Vermont senator or from “Independent” to “Republican” to vote for Donald Trump — had to do so last October in order to be allowed to cast a ballot.

In other words, if you were registered as anything other than a Democrat on October 9th of last year and you want to vote for Sanders, you are out of luck.

Ex-member of Dutch parliament poses as Clinton supporter

A few months ago, one of our D'66 members of parliament, backbencher Wassila Hachchi, suddenly disappeared. Once touted as a paragon of integration she quit her job with little explanation: she was moving on, she said in a letter to parliament. Days later she showed up in New York, apparently applying for a job in the Clinton campaign, though the campaign leader denied knowing anything about her. Subsequently, her party threw her out. She is now 'retired' from parliament and on parliamentary welfare, receiving 6801 euro a month. So her presence at Clinton rallies is not really a surprise, but here in the Netherlands we wonder how the leech dares to show her face in public - without a staying permit she should have been thrown out of the States by now.

"He [Koenders] said that the Dutch government cannot ratify the agreement in light of the current situation…they are pressed for time, including by the Constitution," the source told reporters in Brussels.

"A large group in the parliament has asked the government not to ratify the agreement and he [Koenders] cannot rule this out. They want to resolve this issue by the summer," the source said.

A total of 61 percent of Dutch people who cast their vote a consultative referendum on the EU-Ukraine association agreement on April 6 rejected the deal's ratification.

Crude oil ended well off the day's lows, however, with a strike in Kuwait slashing the country's oil output by more than half.

Brent crude LCOc1 settled down 19 cents, or 0.4 percent, at $42.91 a barrel, after falling $3 earlier in the session, while U.S. WTI crude CLc1 closed down 58 cents, or 1.4 percent, at $39.78 a barrel, after hitting $37.61 earlier.

America Has Been At War 93% of the Time – 222 Out of 239 Years – Since 1776

Below, I have reproduced a year-by-year timeline of America’s wars, which reveals something quite interesting: since the United States was founded in 1776, she has been at war during 214 out of her 235 calendar years of existence. In other words, there were only 21 calendar years in which the U.S. did not wage any wars.

To put this in perspective:

* Pick any year since 1776 and there is about a 91% chance that America was involved in some war during that calendar year.

* No U.S. president truly qualifies as a peacetime president. Instead, all U.S. presidents can technically be considered “war presidents.”

* The U.S. has never gone a decade without war.

* The only time the U.S. went five years without war (1935-40) was during the isolationist period of the Great Depression.

Corruption cases involving more than £300,000 - or three million yuan - could incur the death penalty in future, Chinese authorities have ruled.

Under President Xi Jinping the country has waged a much-publicised anti-corruption campaign however no Communist Party official is known to have been put to death for the offence since Xi took office.

The Supreme People's Court and China's national prosecuting body said that bribes or embezzlement totalling three million yuan or more will be considered 'extraordinarily huge value' and could incur the death penalty, or a life sentence without parole.

The Steep Cost of Tax Dodging

The old saying goes that there are two things certain in life: death and taxes. But do taxes actually apply to the rich and powerful?

US corporations enjoy US infrastructure, talent and other resources, but they're not giving back financially. Over the last 50 years, the corporate share of federal revenues has dropped from a high of almost 40 percent in 1943 to less than 9 percent today. And while corporations pay less, ordinary Americans are called upon to make up the difference. Individual income taxes will account for nearly 49 percent of all federal revenues in 2016. If you add payroll taxes, individual taxes will make up more than 80 percent of US government revenues this year.

Clintons part of US oligarchy ‘squeezing’ working class: Journalist

US Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is accurate in comparing Bill and Hillary Clinton to the country’s oligarchy who are ruling the US and “squeezing” the middle and lower class households, an investigative journalist in Washington says.

“Senator Sanders has hit the nail on the head; Hillary Clinton and her husband do represent an oligarchy,” said Wayne Madsen, an author and columnist specializing in intelligence and international affairs.

“These are the upper one percent of the one percent in the United States who are doing quite well and the rest of the country isn’t,” Madsen said during a phone interview with Press TV on Monday.

Why Bill Clinton is Full of Shit

Former U.S. President Bill Clinton has been making the rounds to defend his policies while in office to support his wife’s run for President. The close working relationship that he and Hillary Clinton have infers a symbiosis that other ‘First Couples’ wouldn’t be jointly held accountable for. And in contrast to the oft offered argument that Mrs. Clinton isn’t responsible for her husband’s policies, she has taken responsibility (links below) for her role in developing, promoting and implementing the omnibus crime bill of 1994 that led to the massive buildout of the carceral state (mass incarceration) and for her use of the term ‘super-predator’ as racist slander against Black children.

Bill Clinton is Full of Shit. But then, aren't all politicians?

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION BACKS LOCKHEED SALE OF F-35 FIGHTER JETS IN VIOLATION OF CONTRACT WITH PARTNER NATIONS

Greedy for Lockheed corporate support, the Pentagon offers outside countries special sales deals on pre-production jets.

WHAT'S THE PENTAGON DOING?

The Pentagon has reported US foreign military sales (FMS) agreements with three countries which are not F-35 partners. Israel, Japan and Korea have agreed to purchase F-35 pre-production aircraft at a total value of over $15 billion. These contracts will include offset agreements which financially reward the countries for their purchase. The current low rate F-35 production lot (LRIP-8) plane count is 29 US, 8 Partner , and 6 FMS.

Poland: A New Route for ISIS Weapons Smuggling Operations?

After bringing Ukraine to the stage of complete disintegration, the country has fallen into mired corruption, ruled by oligarchs and extremist groups. This all brings Ukraine towards the final steps of ‘democracy’ and closer EU and NATO structures. Namely, it changes Ukraine into an open mafia territory where one of the primary forms of trade is selling weapons (about 2 million weapons have recently been acquired by the Ukrainian Maidan extremists) to ISIS cells in Western Europe. Poland at this stage will be the territory of smuggling routes and logistics. Paradoxically, precisely because of being a smuggling route, Poland will be able to enjoy, for as long as possible, relative calm since groups of terrorists smuggling weapons from Ukraine will not want to be noticed by local intelligence services in Poland.

FLASHBACK - The Death of Vincent Foster

On July 20, 1993, six months to the day after Bill Clinton took office as President of the United States, the White House Deputy Council, Vincent Foster, told his secretary Deborah Gorham, "I'll be right back". He then walked out of his office, after offering his co-worker Linda Tripp, the leftover M&Ms from his lunch tray.
That was the last time Vincent Foster was seen alive.

Contrary to the White House spin, Vincent Foster's connection to the Clinton's was primarily via Hillary, rather than Bill. Vincent and Hillary had been partners together at the rose law firm, and allegations of an ongoing affair had persisted from the Little Rock days to the White House itself.

U.S. Preparing To Launch Submarine Drones Into Disputed Territory Of The South China Sea

By Nicholas West

An ongoing territorial dispute in the South China Sea over a stretch that comprises more than 750 reefs, banks, and shoals known more generally as the Spratly Islands continues to heat up.

Late 2015 saw a severe escalation when the United States announced that it would send warships directly into a zone which China believes it lays claim to. The U.S. has continued to counter China’s claim to sovereign territory, which (officially) dates from 2009, with a series of military maneuvers that many believe could spiral dangerously out of control...

Phone transcript proves Hillary lied about Benghazi attack

A transcript of a telephone conversation released by The State Department proves once and for all that Hillary Clinton knowingly lied about the Benghazi attack on the American diplomatic compound there in 2012.

The transcript, obtained under a FOIA request by Judicial Watch, details a call immediately after the attack between the then-secretary of state and then-Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Kandil.

“We know the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film,” Clinton told Kandil. “It was a planned attack – not a protest.”

Kandil responded “You’re not kidding. Based on the information we saw today we believe that group that claimed responsibility for this is affiliated with al-Qaida.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 


When Patricia Smith, mother of one of the Benghazi victims, reported that Hillary had told her the attack had nothing to do with the video immediately after the attack, Hillary called her a liar on national TV.

The State Department transcript proves Hillary was the liar.

Think Hillary is still a champion for women?

Obama Sends More Troops To Iraq; Authorizes Use Of Apache Helicopters; Gives $415 Million To Local Army

Back in 2014 Obama promised that as part of the US war against ISIS, there would be "no ground troops in Iraq." Moments ago U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter gave the latest confirmation that Obama was not being exactly "honest", when during a visit to Baghdad in which he met U.S. commanders, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, and Iraqi Defence Minister Khaled al-Obeidi, he announced that the US would send another 200 additional troops, raising the number of U.S. troops in Iraq to about 4,100.

This follows a report two weeks ago according to which the US would "greatly increase" the number of special forces deployed to Syria under the same pretext: to fight the same Islamic State, which only exists due to a CIA operation to destabilize and overthrow Assad's regime in Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The questions no one appears to be asking in Foggy Bottom are:

1. What happens in Iraq when the Shiite Cleric Muqtada Al Sadr decides he will not brook anymore foreign (read: US) military intervention, organises a popular revolt, and sweeps the existing government out of office?!?

2. What happens in Syria when Putin, who has assured Al-Assad that he will not lose this civil war, decides to permanently install Russian troops on the ground, to prevent any US military decap strike against Al-Assad?!?

It is feeling to me that the US is pushing the rest of the world toward World War III.

Ever had one of those dreams where you can see two trains about to collide, and there is nothing you can do to stop it?!?

That is precisely what the geopolitical landscape appears to be right now.

Syria says Israel collaborating with militants in Golan Heights

Syria's envoy to the United Nations says Israeli regime has been collaborating with the Takfiri Daesh terrorists and al-Qaeda linked militants in the occupied Golan Heights.

Bashar Ja'afari made the remarks during a press briefing after meeting the UN's special envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura, at peace talks in the Swiss city of Geneva on Monday.

The Syrian official also denounced as "provocative" an Israeli cabinet meeting recently held in the occupied region.

"It is an irresponsible provocation committed by Benjamin Netanyahu, the prime minister of the Israeli occupation force," Ja'afari said, noting, "This Israeli provocation ... confirms without any doubt the cooperation between Israel and terrorists of Daesh and Nusra Front on the demarcation line between where the Golan is and UN troops are positioned."

Clinton Delegate Lead Down to 194, Even as Dramatic Miscounting of Delegates

In just the past week, Sanders has cut Clinton's delegate lead by 20 -- by 12 in Colorado (Sanders +6, Clinton -6) and by four each in Nevada and Missouri (Sanders +2, Clinton -2) -- without a single statewide primary or caucus being held, and even Nate Silver and his crew haven't been able to amend their usually accurate delegate tallies fast enough. That's understandable; it's easy to fall behind in reporting on a candidate who's beaten Hillary Clinton eight Election Days in a row -- President Obama having never lost more than two in a row in 2008 -- when you also have to publish esoterically misleading stories like "Clinton Is Winning the States That Look Like the Democratic Party" and "Bernie Sanders Is Even Less Competitive Than He Appears".

The military/security complex, the CIA, and the neocons were very much against ending the Cold War as their budgets, power, and ideology were threatened by the prospect of peace between the two nuclear superpowers.

Free Syrian Army Warn Ceasefire on Brink of Collapse

A legal adviser of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) told Sputnik on Sunday that the ceasefire in Syria was on the verge of collapse and the FSA may withdraw from the negotiation process.
"Intensity of ceasefire violations by the regime is increasing, particularly in Aleppo, from the southern suburbs, where Iranian and Afghan fighters get together… This decision [to exit the negotiation process] requires consideration, perhaps the Free Syrian Army leadership will summit to decide whether or not to continue to participate in the negotiations," Osama Abu Zeid said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How convenient for the US, which is looking for any excuse, any justification for engineering a massive invasion, and decap strike against Al-Assad in Damascus.

There is just one little, itsy-bitsy problem here; and that is, What will Russia do when that happens?!?

Please remember, as reported yesterday in the independent.co.uk:

Vladimir Putin has personally assured Bashar Al-Assad that Russia will not let the Syrian government lose the civil war, according to a senior MP who recently met the Syrian dictator. During a visit to Damascus as part of a fact-finding mission, the Conservative MP David Davis held face-to-face talks with President Assad. He told the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show that the Syrian leader discussed the motives behind President Putin’s partial withdrawal of military forces from the country, after Russian troops proved instrumental in turning the tide of the war in favour of the regime.

War with Russia?!? Over Syria?!?

Forgive me, but a short memo to the reality challenged in Foggy Bottom, AKA those in the bowels of power in Washington DC: this is a really, spectacularly lousy idea.

And why?!?

Because at this point in its history, the American military does not have the troop strength, the weaponry, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war with Russia.

US Government Report Admits Poisoning Drinking Water Of Millions

The US Government Accountability Office (GAO) has issued a shocking report that says drinking water across the United States is being knowingly contaminated with dangerous poisons by the federal government.

According to the GAO, the Environmental Protection Agency has failed to protect underground drinking water supplies from oilfield contamination, and been grossly negligent in allowing companies to dump wastewater into aquifers – putting the health of millions of citizens at risk.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Look, if you can get cheap safe water out of your faucets, then you won;t buy the more expensive bottled water sold by our campaign donors! So, by letting your water become dangerous, we force you to spend MORE money for water, and that is good for the economy (and for those of us who own stock in those bottled water companies)! See how it works?" -- Official White Horse Souse

Sanders's criticism of Israel is long overdue

Bernie Sanders is not only taking on the Washington establishment in his campaign for the Democratic Party presidential nomination, he is also challenging many of the received truths that make up the ideological foundations upon which its power rests.

Of those received truths one of the most sacrosanct is America’s unconditional support for the state of Israel, with the penalty for anyone in US public life who dares question that support, dares question Israel, instant and immediate career death. The fact that Sanders, who also happens to be Jewish, has departed from this ironclad consensus and dared criticize Israel while campaigning for the highest office in the land, this only adds more significance to it.

Tax day is annoying for Americans, and hell for Palestinians

Tax Day can be aggravating for those of us who file and pay taxes without benefit of lawyers, accountants, family foundations or secret offshore accounts. For opponents of illegal Israeli settlements, apartheid and population removal generally, it is also a day of outrage. Palestinians may legitimately feel terror and despair at what this day signifies for them.

For Tax Day is the day that pro-Zionist Americans get to take off their 2015 contributions to any of the US pro-Israel charities that everyone, including the US Treasury, knows are funneling money to establish and support illegal Jewish settlements and consequently the terror inflicted upon Palestinians by armed and violent settlers. (Of course, it is also the day that each of us contributes our tax dollars to funding the weapons used to enforce Israel’s occupation.)

According to the Tax Foundation, the top tax rate that year (adjusted for inflation) was 7 percent on income above $11.5 million; the lowest rate was 1 percent on income under $463,826.

Virus Fakery: My Conversation With a White House Insider; And Another Conversation With a Virologist

By Jon Rappoport

There are a number of cases in which a virus is said to be the cause of a disease—but the evidence doesn’t stand up.

I first realized this in 1987. I was writing my book, AIDS INC., Scandal of the Century.

Robert Gallo, who claimed he had found the cause of AIDS, hadn’t done proper work. From everything I read, he had discovered HIV in 35 to 60 percent of AIDS patients he had studied.

He should have been able to isolate HIV in virtually every patient.

Then there was the fact that the most popular tests for HIV, the Elisa and Western Blot, were fatally flawed. They could register positive for a whole host of reasons that had nothing to do with HIV.

And no one had found sufficient quantities of HIV in humans to justify claiming it caused any kind of illness...

Homeland Security warns Windows PC users to uninstall Quicktime

The Department of Homeland Security and a top cybersecurity firm have advised Windows PC users to uninstall Apple's Quicktime video player immediately after two new bugs were found in the software.

In a blog post published Thursday, the Trend Micro security firm said that Apple was no longer issuing security updates for Quicktime for Windows, despite the presence of the bugs. Trend Micro said the bugs could be used to launch attacks on PCs if users visit a compromised web page or open a tained file.

Trend Micro said it was not aware of any cases where the bugs had been exploited by hackers. The warning does not apply to Quicktime on Mac operating systems.

DHS's United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) put out a similar alert Thursday warning that Windows PC users were vulnerable to viruses and other threats due to the security flaws.

"The only mitigation available is to uninstall QuickTime for Windows," US-CERT's alert said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the DHS just admitted to is something I have been saying all along. Despite the bluff and bluster of the NSA/FBI/CIA, etc. the government cannot find cyber criminals. Obviously, hunting these slimes down and crucifying them on live TV would actually solve the problem, but the US Government's official; recommendation is to stop using any compromised software. Today it is Quicktime. But what happens as more software, poorly written to inconsistent standards and released with known bugs, becomes compromised by cyber-criminals? Are we to uninstall more software until bit by bit our computers are whittled down to useless doorstops?

Or is this announcement by DHS payback for Apple's fight against the FBI over the San Bernardino iPhone (which turned out not to have any useful information on it after all the fuss)?

Quicktime has become a ubiquitous standard. Apple makes a great deal of cash porting their products to Windows, such as iTunes, which sells music and videos from the iTunes store as well as supporting their line of phone and tablet products. This DHS announcement will no doubt have a major impact on Apple's revenue.
