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.

Weekly Standard praises Obama for defying "the left" on detainee abuse photos

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a blatant attempt to move the torture scandal into a left versus right partisan bicker to obscure the fact that both parties knew it was going on and did nothing.

This is war crimes we are taking about, not the next campaign button.

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.

Pentagon Understates War Casualties, Says Veterans Group

The Pentagon is intentionally underreporting US casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to a recent report by veterans' advocacy group Veterans for Common Sense.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We saw the same thing in Vietnam. The government concealed the true number of killed and wounded until so many had died that the families were starting to meet and realized for themselves the numbers of dead had to be higher.

Used to be One of the Rotten Ones

What, with all the recent brow furrowing, chin scratching and contrarian preening set in motion by the suddenly controversial topic of whether or not torture works and, if so, whether we should consider adopting it as our official policy, I thought it would be a good time to revisit some of the words of some of the nation's leading moral/ethical voices.

Below are a series of excerpts concerning the use of torture. See if you can guess the speaker of each. Answers below the fold:

Osama bin Laden was US operator: President Asif Ali Zardari

Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari has alleged that elusive Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was a US operator who had tried to destabilise his late wife Benazir Bhutto's government back in 1989.

In fact, as premier Bhutto had "warned America about Osama bin Laden in 1989 with a call to then US president George H. Bush", Zardari said on NBC's Meet the Press programme Sunday.

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?

Congress Resists Guantánamo Releases

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.

"Zbigniew Brzezinski:" ... I wrote president Carter, in essence: "We now have the opportunity to provide the USSR with their Viet Nam war."

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.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, I would be cautious about this one. This looks like a desperate attempt to rebrand the Nazis as a contemporary threat, rather than a relic from bygone days.

Criminalizing Criticism Of Israel

On October 16, 2004, President George W. Bush signed the Israel Lobby's bill, the Global Anti-Semitism Review Act. This legislation requires the US Department of State to monitor anti-semitism world wide.

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.

Rahm Israel Emanuel hasn't been mopping floors at the White House.
As soon as he gets the Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009 passed, it will become a crime for any American to tell the truth about Israel's treatment of Palestinians and theft of their lands.

It will be a crime for Christians to acknowledge the New Testament's account of Jews demanding the crucifixion of Jesus.

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.

" I was very happy at the idea of meeting Lazar but when I confronted the so-caled "Eli Wiesel", I was stunned to see a man I didn`t recognize at all, who didn`t even speak Hungarian or Yiddish and instead he was speaking English in a strong French accent. Therefore our meeting was over in about ten minutes. As a goodbye gift, the man gave me his book entitled "Night" of which he claimed to be the author. I accepted the book I didn`t know at that time but told everyone there that this man was not the person he pretended to be!"

Why the Government's Attempt to Instill False Confidence Will Backfire

The government is doing its best to try to "restore confidence" in the economy. Indeed, Obama's top economics advisors believe they can fool people into believing that everything is fine, and then the economy will recover.

And for that reason, defenders of the status quo think that it is important for everyone to keep quiet about how severe the crisis really is.

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?

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.

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.

According to the document, Ms. Pelosi was one of the first lawmakers briefed on the interrogations in 2002.

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.

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.

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

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.

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."

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."

• 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.

"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....'

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…

USA says "OK TO SPY ON US" Welcome to the United States of Israel

In a shocking decision (not really!! given the very sad FACT that Israel owns America) the AIPAC spies will now be free to continue to spy on America, American interests, continue to buy and blackmail members of Congress, the Senate and the White House. Yes, you heard it here, and how nice that they go free at the same time the big "lovefest" is taking place at the annual AIPAC spy, I mean AIPAC policy conference. Seriously, America wake up here, stop being a doormat for Israel.

GERMAN MEDIA REMOVES STORY CLAIMING IRAN THREATENED TO DESTROY ISRAEL IN 11 DAYS.

N-TV ran a story a couple days ago about an Israeli TV broadcast which supposedly showed Iranian general chief of staff Attalah Slahi announcing that Iran would destroy Israel in 11 days.

Setting aside the question of why Attalah Slahi would make such a stupid and provocative statement to an Israeli at a time when Israel is desperate to start a war between the US and Iran, there were immediate questions raised about the accuracy of the Israeli translation, given prior history of intentional mistranslations when Israel provides Arab news stories to the west.

It appears those questions were justified.

Buying Brand Obama

By Chris Hedges

Barack Obama is a brand. And the Obama brand is designed to make us feel good about our government while corporate overlords loot the Treasury, our elected officials continue to have their palms greased by armies of corporate lobbyists, our corporate media diverts us with gossip and trivia and our imperial wars expand in the Middle East. Brand Obama is about being happy consumers. We are entertained. We feel hopeful. We like our president. We believe he is like us. But like all branded products spun out from the manipulative world of corporate advertising, we are being duped into doing and supporting a lot of things that are not in our interest.

BLACKMAIL Is Reason For NO Oversight By Congress: SIBEL EDMONDS

Ironically but understandably, the Harman case has become one of rare unequivocal bipartisanship, when no one from either side of the partisan aisle utters a word. How many House or Senate Republicans have you heard screaming, or even better, calling for an investigation? The right wing remains silent. Some may have their hand, directly or indirectly, in the same AIPAC cookie jar.

Go West Young Man

In the book for which Elie Wiesel is most famous, namely Night, which is recommended reading in public schools across this country, Wiesel paints an horrendous picture of life in Auschwitz from April 1944 to January 1945 when he was there. Although many hundreds of thousands of Jews were supposedly gassed there during this time, Wiesel makes no mention of gassings or gas chambers anywhere in his book, as Jürgen Graf and Robert Faurisson have pointed out to us. He does however claim to have seen flames from the chimneys and Dr. Mengele wearing a monocle. Both claims are clearly lies.

A Method To Their Madness: The Hegelian Dialectic And False Flag Operations

Even more simply put, it is the process of creating a problem (thesis) to which there will be a reaction and demands for a solution (antithesis) leading to a solution (synthesis). This has been used repeatedly by our Zionist masters to control the minds of the American people and lead them towards solutions that they would not, under other circumstances, accept.

The most common use of this process has been by Zionist Neo-Conservative warmongers in the "false flag" operations that have been carried out to a political end, usually war against another country, or the so-called Cold War, or as in the "war on terror," against "radical Islam."

FLASHBACK - Army: 3 vials of virus samples missing from Maryland facility

The three missing vials contained samples of Venezuelan Equine Encephalitis, a virus that sickens horses and can be spread to humans by mosquitos. In 97 percent of cases, humans with the virus suffer flu-like symptoms, but it can be deadly in about one out of 100 cases, according to Caree Vander Linden, a spokeswoman for the Army’s Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This was, of course, about the same time the entire Venezuelan Polo Team's horses all died in Miami.

The Venezuelans were favored to win until their ponies all died.

Cheney's Law

For three decades Vice President Dick Cheney conducted a secretive, behind-closed-doors campaign to give the president virtually unlimited wartime power. Finally, in the aftermath of 9/11, the Justice Department and the White House made a number of controversial legal decisions. Orchestrated by Cheney and his lawyer David Addington, the department interpreted executive power in an expansive and extraordinary way, granting President George W. Bush the power to detain, interrogate, torture, wiretap and spy -- without congressional approval or judicial review

Paul Krugman - The Bankster's Nobel Prize-Winning Shill -"Falling Wage Syndrome"

The New York Times - Economic Propaganda from Paul Krugman --Whatever the specifics, however, falling wages are a symptom of a sick economy.

It’s true that many workers are still getting pay increases. But there are enough pay cuts out there that, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average cost of employing workers in the private sector rose only two-tenths of a percent in the first quarter of this year — the lowest increase on record. Since the job market is still getting worse, it wouldn’t be at all surprising if overall wages started falling later this year.

To break that vicious circle, we basically need more: more stimulus, more decisive action on the banks, [...] Credit where credit is due...

[Give more money to the banks!!!!!!!!!!]

55,000 already DEAD, hundreds of thousands hospitalized!!!

OMG!!! OMG!!! 55,000 dead? From what?

Swine flu?............... Nope.

Avian flu?................ Nope.

Bubonic Plague?.................. Nope.

The 55,000 dead was the deaths due to that killer drug, Vioxx, legally sanctioned by the FDA. And these deaths were from 1999-2003.

Nearly 14,000 deaths a year from a government approved drug , but you didn't see anywhere near the amount of hysteria from that death march. Hundreds of thousands more hospitalized due to reactions from the FDA's own Grim Reaper. Put into a hospital from nasty Vioxx effects like loss of stomach lining, heart attacks and spontaneous GI bleeding.

Hell, that's not medicine, that's a legalized form of Russian Roulette.

Can Swine Flu Be Blamed on Industrial Farming in Mexico?

"But what is clear thanks to the hard work of virologists is that this particular strain of flu got its genetic start on U.S. hog farms back in the 1990s. That's according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. How the virus jumped from pigs to humans may have nothing to do with factory farms, but confined animal feeding operations helped to breed the disease."

Dead In The Water - The Sinking of the USS Liberty

34 Americans MURDERED, over 170 wounded. Survivors who tried to escape the bullets, shells, rockets, torpedoes and even NAPALM were machined gunned while trying to escape in life rafts.

Who did this foul deed? IRAN? NO........... Syria? NO.........

It was our good "friend" and only "ally" in the ME, ISRAEL.

Watch it now before it gets censored AGAIN, from Youtube or Google..... someone's awful nervous about this truth getting out. Maybe they need to keep the American public in the dark and ignorant about that day which lives in infamy, June 8, 1967.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As AIPAC cranks up the wild party at having gotten their spies off of the hook, and proved once again they can buy any member of Congress (even the second richest one), it is worth remembering how Israel slaughtered 34 Americans in a failed attempt to trick the US into the war against Egypt, and still had the juice to order President Lyndon Johnson to cover up the attack with a story of an "Accident"

Iraq bloodshed rises as US allies defect

Obama’s withdrawal pledge is at risk as militias paid by the US begin to rejoin the insurgency

IRAQ is threatened by a new wave of sectarian violence as members of the “Sons of Iraq” – the Sunni Awakening militias that were paid by the US to fight Al-Qaeda – begin to rejoin the insurgency.

If the spike in violence continues, it could affect President Barack Obama’s pledge to withdraw all combat troops from Iraqi cities by the end of June. All US troops are due to leave the country by 2012.
