What Did Nancy Know?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Justin makes some very good points here, but folks, this whole issue of Nancy Pelosi is a limited hangout.

It doesn't matter when she knew, she should have known; all of Congress should have known all along. That's their job. And you are never going to convince me that the entire US Congress, with their access to information and their staffs and operating budgets, all failed to see what was obvious to we bloggers operating out here on spare change found underneath seat cushions all saw; that the war in Iraq was based on lies.

We do not have a just reason to be in Iraq. We never did.

There were no weapons of mass destruction.

Iraq had nothing to do with 9-11.

The only link between Al Qaeda and Iraq was a "confession" extracted under torture.

Al Qaeda appears to be a front group for CIA and Mossad.

Why are we in Iraq? Why do we remain despite the protests of millions of Americans?

Maybe you should ask these guys.

But the reality is that the entire government of the United States is complicit in the crime of lying the people of this nation into a pointless war of conquest on behalf of Israel. The evidence to justify that war was based entirely on lies, forged documents, and confessions extracted under torture.

Think the reasons to be in Afghanistan are any more honoest? Fool me once ...

Even the official report on 9-11 is based on confessions extracted under torture.

As long as the US remains in Iraq and Afghanistan, the crime is perpetuated.

As long as the US does the bidding of Israel, the crime is perpetuated.

Why are we not seeing the Obama administration act in accordance with the law, which is to end these obviously illegal wars and bring our kids home while they are still alive and healthy.

Or will Israel simply not allow it?

A founding principle of this nation is that the government rules with the consent of the governed.

I do not and never have consented to be ruled by lies and deceptions, nor do I consent to be ruled for the benefit of a foreign government.

And I never will.

How about you? Are you going to be the Good German, I mean the Good American? Are you going to lull your moral conscience to sleep by going along with lies and torture and death, abasing yourself before your masters to such an extent that to call you sheeple is an insult to sheep?

You cannot pretend you do not know what the government has become. You know it. The world knows it. The world knows you know it.

The whole world is watching what Americans, always ready to declare their love and support of human rights and the rule of law, will do now that the true nature of this horror we call the Federal Government is exposed for all to see.

Time to decide what you will do.

Dissing Pelosi -- A Hoyer Power Play?

Mr. Hoyer had "no basis on which to base such a belief"?

His boss had just laid out a basis for such a belief. Repeatedly. Searingly. Adamantly. She put it on the record. She put it in the press. She concurred in labeling the CIA a despicable body of liars.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Maybe Mr. Hoyer is aware of evidence yet to surface that damns Ms. Pelosi as the liar here!

King of the Hate Business

Ever since 1971 US Postal Service mailbags have bulged with Dees’ fundraising letters, scaring dollars out of the pockets of trembling liberals aghast at his lurid depictions of hate-sodden America, in dire need of legal confrontation by the SPLC. Nine years ago Ken Silverstein wrote a devastating commentary on Dees and the SPLC in Harpers, dissecting a typical swatch of Dees’ solicitations. At that time, as Silverstein pointed out, the SPLC was “the wealthiest civil rights group in America,” with $120 million in assets.

WHO IS SENDING YOUR CHILDREN OFF TO DIE IN WAR?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With the corporate media finally being forced to admit what we here at the blogs have known all along; that the "reasons" for the war in Iraq were all based on confessions extracted under torture and were never real, it is time to go back and look at that aspect of the story the corporate media still refuses to cover.

Just who and what was the REAL reason for so many young Americans to die horrible deaths so far from their homes and loved ones?

The Truth About Richard Bruce Cheney

First, more Americans were killed by terrorists on Cheney's watch than on any other leader's watch in US history.

Second, the fact no attack has occurred on U.S. soil since 9/11--much touted by Cheney--is due almost entirely to the nation's having deployed over 200,000 U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and not to "the Cheney method of interrogation."

Third--and here comes the blistering fact--when Cheney claims that if President Obama stops "the Cheney method of interrogation and torture", the nation will be in danger, he is perverting the facts once again.

Deconstructing Obama's Excuses

President Obama and his aides yesterday put forth six excuses for his about-face, one more flawed than the next.

First, there was the nothing-to-see-here excuse. Then there was the the-bad-apples-have-been-dealt-with excuse. Then there was the no-good-would-come-of-this excuse. Then there was the "protect-the-troops" excuse. Then there was the chilling-effect excuse.

Torture Pictures: When a Flip-Flop Isn’t a Flip-Flop

Sure as shootin', the torture pictures will be released. The courts will authorize them or some exceptional leaker will free them. In the digital age, if you know a picture exists and it’s in hot demand—whether it’s a nude Miss California or a gruesome bit of aggressive interrogation—there’s little or no chance it won’t be found.

Will They Hate Us for the Secret Photographs?

Recall that immediately after 9/11, U.S. officials put out the official version of what had motivated the terrorists. “They hate America for its freedom and values,” they cried. The anger and hatred that had motivated the attackers had nothing to do with U.S. foreign policy, U.S. officials claimed.

Yet, today we have President Obama, on the extreme urging of the Pentagon, reneging not only on his campaign promise of “transparency” but also on the commitment U.S. officials made to release the latest batch of torture photos that the Pentagon has kept hidden for some five years.

Obama Justice Department continues to cover up Bush-Era crimes

Something very questionable is happening in Obama’s Department of Justice. I don’t know if it is simply institutional loyalty that is the reason for a once admired office of justice to simply abdicate from its official duty. Whatever the reason, there is one question that no one will answer and this question only grows more urgent as new developments are made public.

Why is no one being held accountable?

Paul Craig Roberts: Who Rules America?

Following al-Libi's 'Suicide,' What About the Other 'Ghost Detainees' in Libya, Elsewhere?

Al-Libi was, after all, the 'ghost detainee' who had offered a false link between Iraq and al-Qaeda, used loudly by the Bush Administration before the war as a key justification for it, after being tortured by the CIA and Egypt, where he'd been secretly renditioned from U.S. custody at Guantanamo. He would later recant his false 'confession,' explaining that it had come about only after 17 hours of 'mock burial,' and a session of brutal beatings by his captors which followed it.

Newsweek describes the al-Libi affair today as "one of the biggest intelligence fiascos of the run up to the Iraq War" and "a major embarrassment for the Bush administration."

Israeli “Peace” discussion groups, common pitfalls and how to recognise them.

What they are "there to do" (in my view) can be divided into several branches:
1) Isolate opinions that are not to their liking, and in our case, ones that directly cite Israeli responsibility. These opinions are "imposed" as being off topic, irrelevant, beyond the pale, etc. The opinion is then discarded very rapidly and the gatekeeper cuts to a very routine "attack the person who did that", leading to point two:

Geithner To Take Orders From Global Elite At Bilderberg

According to a London Times report, U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner will probably be in attendance at this week’s Bilderberg Group meeting, as top globalists meet to plot the financial future of the planet behind closed doors.

The Times article notes that “US Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner’s public schedule is mysteriously empty for the next two days,” speculating that he will be in Vouliagmeni, Greece for the annual elitist confab, following in the footsteps of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, who attended last year’s conference in Washington DC just months before the collapse of Lehman Brothers and the start of the economic crisis.

Obama's Latest Effort to Conceal Evidence of Bush Era Crimes

It's difficult to react much to Obama's complete reversal today of his own prior decision to release photographs depicting extreme detainee abuse by the United States. He's left no doubt that this is what he does: ever since he was inaugurated, Obama has taken one extreme step after the next to keep concealed both the details and the evidence of Bush's crimes, including rendition, torture and warrantless eavesdropping. The ACLU's Amrit Singh -- who litigated the thus-far-successful FOIA lawsuit to compel disclosure of these photographs -- is exactly right:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As long as evidence is kept secret, this scandal is not going to go away. People will rightly assume that far worse things than waterboarding took place. The endless morbid speculation will keep this issue alive, accelerating the loss of trust and confidence in the government.

Report: much of 9/11 Commission’s findings cite intelligence garnered by torture

Much of the material cited in the 9/11 Commission’s findings was derived from terror war detainees during brutal CIA interrogations authorized by the Bush administration, according to a Wednesday report.

“More than one-quarter of all footnotes in the 9/11 Report refer to CIA interrogations of al Qaeda operatives subjected to the now-controversial interrogation techniques,” writes former NBC producer Robert Windrem in The Daily Beast. “In fact, information derived from the interrogations was central to the 9/11 Report’s most critical chapters, those on the planning and execution of the attacks.”

Congress and Waterboarding

By KARL ROVE

Someone important appears not to be telling the truth about her knowledge of the CIA's use of enhanced interrogation techniques (EITs). That someone is Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. The political persecution of Bush administration officials she has been pushing may now ensnare her.

Here's what we know. On Sept. 4, 2002, less than a year after 9/11, the CIA briefed Rep. Porter Goss, then House Intelligence Committee chairman, and Mrs. Pelosi, then the committee's ranking Democrat, on EITs including waterboarding. They were the first members of Congress to be informed.

For weeks, the US political and military establishment and the American media have been mounting an increasingly shrill campaign to bully Islamabad into fully complying with US diktats in what Washington has redefined as the AfPak (Afghanistan-Pakistan) war theater.

FLASHBACK - Who killed Nick Berg?

On March 7, 2004, two weeks before his arrest in Mosul, an "enemies list" had been posted on a conservative website, FreeRepublic.com. The list was compiled from signatories to an anti-war petition, and its implied purpose was to encourage readers to harass those it named.

Berg's father was on that list, as was the family firm, Prometheus. This information may well have triggered the arrest of Berg in Iraq.

Obama reverses on releasing detainee photos

In a dramatic and high-profile reversal for his young administration, President Barack Obama is seeking to block the release of 44 photographs depicting abuse of detainees in U.S. military custody in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Justice Department had already agreed to release the photos by May 28 in response to a lawsuit, but Obama is shifting course.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a huge mistake.

Obama is now seen to be waffling, not decisive. Obama is seen as bowing down before Joe Lieberman and Lindsey Graham.

Contrary to the GOP position, releasing these photos does not weaken national security. The actions DEPICTED in the photos endanger national security by creating enemies of this country and convincing those enemies that it is far better to die in battle than to be captured alive.

The photos are an embarrassment. and by withholding them, Obama is not only obstructing justice, he is an accessory after-the-fact in war crimes.

In the end, by withholding these photos (and the rest of the evidence), it leaves the rest of the world free to assume (probably correctly) that far worse things were done to prisoners than just waterboarding.

Yes, Obama Threatened Britain Over Torture Evidence

Glenn Greenwald has the actual text of the letter the Obama administration sent to the UK government, threatening to halt intelligence co-operation if the details of Binyam Mohammed's torture were publicly revealed by the UK High Court.No, this wasn't some holdover from the Bush administration. The threat was clear and simple. And, recall, Obama sent a second letter to the British government thanking it for capitulating to those threats!

Which leaves only one question: do progressives feel it's still OK to support someone who is complicit in torture when he does other stuff they agree with, or does the enormity of the crime of covering up torture and helping torturers evade justice overshadow anything else that man might do?

But the British High Court announced last week that it will reopen its judgment that details of the torture of the former Guantánamo Bay detainee must be kept secret. Clive Stafford Smith, director of the legal charity Reprieve, one of Mohamed’s attorneys, told IPS, "It is long past time that this evidence was made public. How can it be that two governments that purport to uphold the rule of law be working together to cover up crimes committed against Binyam Mohamed?" In the Batarfi case, a major factor in the decision of the Justice Department was a federal judge’s finding that the government improperly withheld important psychiatric records of a government witness who was used in a "significant" number of Guantánamo cases.

Top Nazis Planned EU-Style Fourth Reich

A writer who was collecting material for a fictional book based around the premise that top Nazis, seeking to preserve their power at the end of the second world war, conspired to create a Fourth Reich under the auspices of the European Union, actually discovered documents proving the plot to be true.

In a Daily Mail piece, Adam Lebor reveals how he uncovered US Military Intelligence report EW-Pa 128, also known as The Red House Report, which details how top Nazis secretly met at the Maison Rouge Hotel in Strasbourg on August 10, 1944 and, knowing Germany was on the brink of military defeat, conspired to create a Fourth Reich - a pan-European economic empire based around a European common market.

To monitor anti-semitism, it has to be defined. What is the definition? Basically, as defined by the Israel Lobby and Abe Foxman, it boils down to any criticism of Israel or Jews.

Elie Wiesel Stole Book & Identity Says Survivor

Elie Wiesel claims to have authored "Un di velt hot geshvign," in Yiddish and published it in Buenos Aires in Dec. 1955. In 1958 he published a French edition paring the original down from 800 pages. In the Preface to a new edition, Wiesel confessed he had been able "to correct and revise a number of important details." In the first English translation he is said to be "almost fifteen," while in the new edition he is fifteen when he arrived at Auschwitz.

One French professor has remarked that "La Nuit" is totally different from anything else that Elie Wiesel has written" and speculates that Francois Mauriac wrote it.

Train Wreck Ahead?

Why the U.S. and Israel may be headed for a collision.

White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, in his own remarks to AIPAC delegates, sought to allay some concerns while laying down the new line. "Relations between Israel and the U.S. are unbreakable," Emanuel said. But he added: "This is the moment of truth for Israel and the Palestinians."

Something doesn't smell right , with this 'Train Wreck' scenario .

Do The Jews Own Hollywood And The Media?

Do the Zionist Jews own Hollywood and the media? Are they using the media to mold and shape American opinion by constantly injecting Zionist propaganda and bias into news programs, movies, television shows, even children's cartoons and entertainment?

The answer is so blatantly "Yes!" that you wouldn't think these questions are even worth pursuing. But recently, the untoward comments of a patriot talk show host made me stop and rethink it. Are there people out there-even in the Patriot Movement-who really are that much in the dark, who deny Jewish influence in the media?

Afghanistan: DOD Makes Excuses, CNN Rushes to Repeat the Spin

Yesterday, while Sec. of State Clinton was expressing “deep regret” over Monday's civilian deaths in Bala Baluk, US military spokespeople were telling a different story. After similar incidents, one of the usual claims made is that the civilian casualties are inevitable since villagers are “used as human shields by the Taliban” but this time, DOD is spinning at a whole new level, claiming that the Taliban rounded up civilians and killed them with grenades – then loaded the bodies into trucks to use are an anti-American photo op. CNN quickly had Barbara Starr on air repeating the DOD version within hours of the Clinton apology.

The Pentagon wants to spend just over $50 billion on classified programs next year, newly-released Defense Department budget documents reveal. “That’s the largest-ever sum,” according to Aviation Week’s Bill Sweetman, a longtime black-budget seer — a three percent increase over last year’s total.

U.S. Missile Defense Secrets, UK Medical Records Accidentally Sold on eBay

Accidentally! MY A.. (BUTT)!! If these people do not know what they are doing what business do they have making "Missile Defense Systems"

A hard drive has been carelessly released, but is fortunately in safe hands

(ISRAELI'S I'm sure! You can bet they had a look at this HD)

Hot off the heels of the of selling the B-2 stealth bomber's radar spectrum to a Russian national and intrusions by Chinese hackers, the U.S. Armed Forces have another leak on their hands. Researchers analyzing 300 hard drives bought at computer fairs and on the internet auction site eBay discovered a surprise -- a hard drive containing U.S. missile defense secrets that was not properly wiped by contractor Lockheed Martin.

A Timeline of CIA Atrocities

Operation MOCKINGBIRD — The CIA begins recruiting American news organizations and journalists to become spies and disseminators of propaganda. The effort is headed by Frank Wisner, Allan Dulles, Richard Helms and Philip Graham. Graham is publisher of The Washington Post, which becomes a major CIA player. Eventually, the CIA?s media assets will include ABC, NBC, CBS, Time, Newsweek, Associated Press, United Press International, Reuters, Hearst Newspapers, Scripps-Howard, Copley News Service and more. By the CIA?s own admission, at least 25 organizations and 400 journalists will become CIA assets.

CIA Says It Briefed Congressional Leaders

The document appears to conflict with recent statements from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who was then the top Democrat on the House intelligence committee. Ms. Pelosi has said she hadn't been told that the CIA was using the technique known as waterboarding, or simulated drowning. According to the document, Ms. Pelosi was one of the first lawmakers briefed on the interrogations in 2002.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now we know why Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat, worked so hard to protect President Bush, a Republican, from investigation; because her own complicity in war crimes would have been exposed!

CIA Says Pelosi Was Briefed on Use of 'Enhanced Interrogations'

Intelligence officials released documents this evening saying that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was briefed in September 2002 about the use of harsh interrogation tactics against al-Qaeda prisoners, seemingly contradicting her repeated statements over the past 18 months that she was never told that these techniques were actually being used.

Chart of the day SHOWS West Texas Crude is up 68% since Obama took office -ALL THE BAILOUT MONEY IS GOING OVERSEAS!

BBC Business News - Markets - Data

[A guy named "Stephens" emailed and alerted me to the fact that U.S. mainstream media reporters of U.S. economic data are fudging the oil price numbers. Look at this BBC graph. It clearly shows a barrel of oil trading well below $35 during the second week in February. Today oil closed in London -trading at $58.12 for a barrel of West Texas crude. That is a 68% increase since Obama started splashing his trillions in bailout money around. In the same period of time, the demand for oil as crashed, leaving oil supertankers stranded idle -but oil is up a whopping 68% ??? So much for an economic stimulus.]

Lahore Attack Mossad & Co. strikes again

“Al-Qaida is the top secret code name of special covert operations of the U.S. CIA, Israeli Mossad, British SIS, Indian RAW. Al-Qaida is a fake name, an imaginary illusion, a deceptive fraud, a fictitious hoax and a fraudulent scam of the unlawful war of terror, which is still being cunningly and clandestinely supported and promoted by the CIA, Mossad, SIS, RAW, and the Corrupt Mercenary Media (CMM) to frame, blame, defame, harm and kill Pakistanis, Kashmiris, Afghans, Arabs, Muslims and other innocent humans by falsely and maliciously labeling them as the Al-Qaida militants, extremists, or terrorists. Actually, Al-Qaida or Al-CIA-da is the CIA. Al-Qaida is the Mossad. Al-Qaida is the SIS. Al-Qaida is the RAW. Al-Qaida is the ISI. Al-Qaida is the CMM.

Wesleyan Shooting: Suspect Targeting School, Jews

Evidence "suggests that Mr. Morgan may be focused on the Wesleyan University campus as well as the Jewish community," Middletown Police Chief Lynn Baldoni said. "Investigators have been in contact with Wesleyan University and leaders of the Jewish community, urging both to be extra vigilant."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hate to stop you in your rush to turn this shooting into a much-needed-by-Israel "Anti-Semitic" incident, but Wesleyan University is a Methodist school!

Should not the assumption be that Stephen Morgan is targeting Methodists?

Time running out to stop Iran nuclear pursuit, investigator says

New York District Attorney Robert Morgenthau told a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing that although he's not an expert on proliferation, many such experts were consulted in the financial probes "and it comes out loud and clear: It is late in this game and we don't have a lot of time to stop Iran from developing long-range missiles and nuclear weapons."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let me see if I have this right.

Morgenthau, who is paid by the taxpayers of New York to protect the taxpayers of New York from crime, is using his tax-payer funded time to proselytize Israel's war propaganda to Congress.

Morgenthau, who is paid by the taxpayers of New York to protect the taxpayers of New York from crime, is pushing the idea of Americans going off to fight yet another war on Israel's enemies, which will presumably kill and cripple many of those same New Yorkers whose taxes pay Morgenthau's salary and expenses.

Morgenthau, who is paid by the taxpayers of New York to protect the taxpayers of New York from crime, openly admits he knows nothing about nuclear proliferation, yet CNN carries his rant as straight news even though the IAEA inspectors in Iran continue to confirm that Iran is building a nuclear power station and UNLIKE Israel, does not conceal a nuclear weapons factory underneath their reactor.

And even IF Iran had a nuclear weapon, they are STILL not a threat to the United States because the United States has been spending your tax money, not on schools, hospitals, and roads, but on bombs. Lots of them. And nobody dares attack us, not even Iran (whic hasn;t attacked anyone in the last 200 years anyway).

I hope the taxpayers of New York wake up and realize that Morgenthau, who is paid by the taxpayers of New York to protect the taxpayers of New York from crime, is helping to sell their children into slavery for Israel's wars.

Group names 25 lenders responsible for economic meltdown

US and foreign banks were not unwitting victims of circumstance but deliberately culpable in the financial meltdown that engulfed the United States last year, a campaign group said Wednesday.

The Center for Public Integrity named 25 “subprime” mortgage companies whose risky lending was blamed for the US property market collapse and the subsequent global economic crisis.

Many of the lenders were either controlled by US and European banks, or could not have indulged in their high-risk lending spree without the connivance of banks, the investigative journalism group said in a new study.

Flashback: Officials scoff at East Bay pedophile ring cover-up

By Justin Scheck
01-25-2006
If only Kathryn Dixon had been a cobbler.
That would have saved years of trouble for a handful of Bay Area public officials, several criminal defendants and a 9th Circuit panel . . . The problem they all ran into is that Dixon . . .was, in the words of Senior 9th Circuit Judge John Noonan, . . . a fully licensed lawyer with her head full of fantasies."
Dixon's most notoriously fantastic assertion came in a federal suit she filed in the mid-1990s alleging that some of the region's best-known lawyers, including Alameda County District Attorney Tom Orloff, former U.S. District Court Judge Barbara Caulfield and then-U.S. Attorney Michael Yamaguchi, were covering up an East Bay pedophile ring.

Sandra Cantu's autopsy report will be sealed

Sandra Cantu's autopsy report will be sealed to avoid 'public outrage'
By Mike Martinez
Bay Area News Group
Posted: 04/24/2009 08:31:41 PM PDT
The judge in the Sandra Cantu murder case agreed to seal her autopsy report Friday, saying if the results were released, there would be "public outrage."
"We haven't seen anything like this in San Joaquin County," Superior Court Judge Linda L. Loftus said. "A lot of courts have never seen this kind of case."
Both prosecution and defense attorneys were in favor of sealing the report.
"In the interest of a fair trial, for both sides in this case, that is the only option," Loftus said. "There would be overriding prejudice if the record is unsealed."

Brian Rohrbough says Columbine segment for Oprah permanently canceled

In a statement, Winfrey says she made the decision because the footage focused too heavily on killers Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. But other issues were also in play. Randy Brown, the father of a Columbine student, confirmed in this space that he and other parents complained to producers about the guests in the pre-taped segment -- Kate Battan, Jefferson County's chief Columbine investigator; Dwayne Fuselier, an FBI profiler whose son, also a Columbine student, made a parody video depicting the destruction of the school two years before the assault; and Dave Cullen, author of the book Columbine.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Republicans would fight back hard if Democrats or liberal groups try to make the Supreme Court confirmation process about Sessions’ record, rather than about Obama’s nominee to replace Justice David Souter.

“If people try to go down that road, it’ll blow up in their face, because Jeff is a good guy,” Graham said. “My hope is that our Democratic colleagues — if you start listening to the bloggers — if we’re going to let the bloggers run the country, then the country’s best days are behind us.”

Busting the Torture Myths

.A torture memo writer refused to comply with a warning about criminal risks—and exposes the truth about the policies.
• Karl Rove and Dick Cheney are convinced that Bush-era torture policy is a promising political product for a party down on its luck.
• Donald Rumsfeld gave step-by-step directions for techniques used at Abu Ghraib.
• Torture techniques originated from the White House shortly after 9/11—long before they were arguably needed on the battlefield.
• Torture was used by Cheney and Rumsfeld to find justification for the invasion of Iraq.
• Jay Bybee was confirmed to a lifetime appointment as all eyes were on Colin Powell’s speech to the U.N. about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction program.

Merck Creates Fake Academic Medical Journal

"The Scientist has reported that, yes, it's true, Merck cooked up a phony, but real sounding, peer reviewed journal and published favorably looking data for its products in them. Merck paid Elsevier to publish such a tome, which neither appears in MEDLINE or has a website, according to The Scientist.

"What's wrong with this is so obvious it doesn't have to be argued for. What's sad is that I'm sure many a primary care physician was given literature from Merck that said, 'As published in Australasian Journal of Bone and Joint Medicine, Fosamax outperforms all other medications....' Said doctor, or even the average researcher wouldn't know that the journal is bogus. In fact, knowing that the journal is published by Elsevier gives it credibility!"

Top Ranking CIA Operatives Admit Al-qaeda Is a Complete Fabrication

BBC’s killer documentary called “The Power of Nightmares“. Top CIA officials openly admit, Al-qaeda is a total and complete fabrication, never having existed at any time. The Bush administration needed a reason that complied with the Laws so they could go after “the bad guy of their choice” namely laws that had been set in place to protect us from mobs and “criminal organizations” such as the Mafia. They paid Jamal al Fadl, hundreds of thousands of dollars to back the U.S. Government’s story of Al-qaeda, a “group” or criminal organization they could “legally” go after. This video documentary is off the hook…
