Extreme Left: Talk Radio Host (Mike Malloy) Claims Dick Cheney Was Responsible For 9/11

Here’s a transcription from Newsbusters:

“Her father and her father’s puppet George at the very least allowed, at the very worst engineered the worst attack on this country since the War of 1812, and she has the audacity to make this kind of a statement. “Americans expect our President to do everything possible to defend the nation from attack.” Where was your father after he deliberately authorized a stand-down, on a day and a time when he knew there was going to be an effort made to attack this country? I don’t know why I give this psychopathic misdirected woman, you ought to be there planning your father’s funeral, Liz, because I’m sure all the nation’s bigwigs, especially the Republicans are going to fall all over themselves to worship in front of his coffin. That’s what you ought to be doing instead of making your filthy, insane, gratuitous statements about what the American people expects their president or an administration to do to protect us from terrorist attack. Shame on you, Liz Cheney. Go plan your father’s funeral. Just do that. Do at least one thing in your useless life that will have some meaning. Go plan his funeral.”

GORDON DUFF: AN OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT OBAMA ABOUT AMERICAN SECURITY

THOSE WHO STOOD BY YOU ARE NOW ASKING YOU TO LISTEN –

President Barak Obama

The White House

1600 Pennsylvania Ave N.W.

Washington, D.C. 20500

Mr. President,

I am speaking for myself and the not entirely uninformed belief that I speak for some of our readership. We are mostly veterans and active duty military. We are not the majority of either group but we are a significant number, in the hundreds of thousands, and are unique in one way. We are your supporters. We worked in support of your election, when you were threatened, we defended you. This is easy to check, simple as getting a record of our publication, our readership numbers or even my own service record book. I am a combat veteran from the Vietnam War.

JEFF GATES: OBAMA’S INNER EISENHOWER

Is Barack Obama waking up to the agenda of those who produced his political career? Was his “Inner Eisenhower” on display last week in his televised speech to the U.N. General Assembly?

Did listeners detect a distraught commander-in-chief seeking to bypass Congress and appeal directly to the international community for help in containing Israel’s expansionist goals?

Has this young president—with no military experience—been forced to face the reality of an enemy within? If so, we may yet have an opportunity to restore representative government. If so, those who deceived the U.S. to invade Iraq for a Zionist agenda may yet be held accountable.

DIA/Pentagon Destroy 10,000 Copies of Lt. Col Anthony Shaffer’s Book “Operation Dark Heart”

A CNN article titled, “Pentagon destroys thousands of copies of Army officer’s memoir” was just posted by Chris Lawrence and Padma Rama, CNN – September 25, 2010 in which the book “Operation Dark Heart” which describes Lt. Col Anthony Shaffer’s time in Afghanistan leading a black-ops team.

CNN stated that “The Department of Defense recently purchased and destroyed thousands of copies of an Army Reserve officer’s memoir in an effort to safeguard state secrets, a spokeswoman said Saturday.”

“DoD decided to purchase copies of the first printing because they contained information which could cause damage to national security,” said Lt. Col. April Cunningham who is a spokeswoman for the Pentagon.

The United Nations, A One World Government

The idea of a one world government has always been one that the elites have patiently worked towards. The forerunner towards their dream of a world government, was called the League of Nations. The League of Nations was established in the year 1919 under the treaty of Versailles to promote international cooperation and to achieve peace and security for the world. Many felt this was important since the world had just experienced its first world war. The League of nations gave way to the modern day United Nations.

On January 1, 1942 President Franklin D. Roosevelt, finding the world at war once again, proposed a stronger joint effort to control the world.

Truth will set US free: breaking Israel’s stranglehold over American foreign policy

Maidhc Ó Cathail argues that it is vital for the American public to understand that unconditional support for Israel is doing incalculable damage to the US national interest and that, to steer US policy back so that it serves the American people, it is crucial to break the Israel lobby’s stranglehold over policy-making and the media.

Shill Out of Town Reporters Brought to Gulf With BP Money

No matter how hard BP trys, this disaster will continue to poison the gulf for years to come.

Was San Bruno Explosion a Plane Crash?
September 27, 2010
by Sandra Hunt for henrymakow.com
A number of reports suggest that the "natural gas pipeline explosion" Sept. 9 that killed seven, injured 50 and leveled 40 homes in San Bruno CA may have involved a plane crash or a missile. If so, there is a massive cover-up taking place.
......"Investigators believed they had collected all the sections needed to reconstruct the metal pipeline but asked that anyone who found metal fragments in the blast area contact the NTSB."

Dangerous Crossroads: US War Games in Asia Target China, Russia and North Korea

The US and some of China's neighboring countries are also conducting joint military exercises this year.

Soon after the US and South Korea staged a joint military drill in the Yellow Sea in July, the US and India are expected to hold an exercise this week at a US military base in Okinawa, Japan. The two countries are also discussing a transport aircraft deal worth $3.5 billion, Indian media reports said.

"A series of military drills initiated by the US and China's neighboring countries showed that the US wants to increase its military presence in Asia," said Yin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, the only solution the US government can come up with, looking at an economy in meltdown and two wars going catastrophically badly, is....to start more wars.

Money transfers could face anti-terrorism scrutiny

Ellen Nakashima
The Washington Post

The Obama administration wants to require U.S. banks to report all electronic money transfers into and out of the country, a dramatic expansion in efforts to counter terrorist financing and money laundering.

Officials say the information would help them spot the sort of transfers that helped finance the al-Qaeda hijackers who carried out the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. They say the expanded financial data would allow anti-terrorist agencies to better understand normal money-flow patterns so they can spot abnormal activity.

Activists expect Israel to stop Gaza-bound boat

Ben Hubbard
Associated Press

JERUSALEM — A small boat carrying Jewish activists is on course to arrive in the blockaded Gaza Strip late Tuesday morning, though they consider it likely the Israeli navy will stop them, an activist on board told The Associated Press Monday.

"We know that they stopped all the other boats, so there is probably a good chance that they will try" to stop this one, activist Yonatan Shapira said by phone from the 33-foot (10-meter) catamaran Irene.

Breaking Israel’s Stranglehold over American Foreign Policy

“if President Obama or any of his successors is ever going to be free to confront and defeat the Zionist lobby’s stooges in Congress and the mainstream media, there has got to be created a constituency of understanding about why it is not in America’s own best interests to go on supporting Zionism’s monster child right or wrong.”

Defense goes all-in for incumbents

Nye’s race follows the perennial pattern of giving for top defense firms Lockheed Martin, Boeing Co., Northrop Grumman and others, which bet heavily on incumbents and stand by them in good times and bad.

“This may be the worst year in a long time to bet on incumbents, but it’s the natural reflex of the defense industry,” said Loren Thompson, chief operating officer of the defense-industry-backed Lexington Institute.

Defense companies go with the members they know — pouring money into the campaigns of members on the Armed Services Committee and the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee. “Generally speaking, the defense industry has a very finely tuned grasp of where individual members are coming from,” Thompson said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is precisely why thinking Americans need to vote those incumbents out who believe that a state of perpetual war is a good thing for this country.

JPMorgan Based Foreclosures on Faulty Documents, Lawyers Claim

JPMorgan Chase & Co. faces a legal challenge next month that could cast doubt on thousands of foreclosures after a mortgage executive at the bank said she didn’t verify documents used to justify home seizures.

Lawyers for a Palm Beach County, Florida, homeowner asked a judge to throw out a foreclosure as a penalty for misleading the court, according to attorney Tom Ice of Ice Legal PA. They’re citing a May 17 deposition in which the JPMorgan executive said she signed thousands of affidavits and documents supporting the New York-based bank’s claims without personally checking loan records. The court is scheduled to hear arguments Oct. 19.

Why We Oppose Prop 19

If we can put every marijuana user in jail and we can find and kill every single marijuana plant, there would be almost no violent crime left in America. This fact is recognized by the liquor industry. That’s why the liquor industry supports our efforts to defeat Prop 19 with such generous financial contributions.

Keep the status quo by defeating Prop 19. Join with Rep. Lamar Smith, other self-interested politicians, a large percentage of law enforcement, prison guards, the liquor industry, Mexican cartels, and thousands of drug dealers in opposing Prop 19. Don’t let our prisons go under-utilized. Arresting marijuana users makes good sense and is just plain good business.

S. 510: 12 Reasons Why The Food Safety Bill From Hell Could Be Very Dangerous For The U.S. Economy

So who is actually in favor of it?
Well, big food corporations and big agriculture are actually very much in favor of this bill.
Why?
Is it because they are so concerned about food safety?
No.
In fact, virtually every major case of food contamination in recent U.S. history has come from large-scale industrial agriculture or large-scale industrial food production.
The real reason why they are backing S. 510 is because it will devastate their primary competition - small food producers and organic farmers.
In recent years, the demand for organic food has skyrocketed as the American people have learned the truth about how our food is actually made. Big agriculture and the giant food producers are losing profits as Americans increasingly vote with their wallets.

Banksters Inflate Speculative Food Bubble, U.N. Offers Global Governance Solution

Eric Blair
Activist Post

Never let a good crisis go to waste. The international bankers are taking advantage of the "food crisis" by driving up food prices in what is shaping up to be a classic case of a manufactured bubble. It is also looking like a clear model of Problem-Reaction-Solution methodology. Create the food inflation problem (of course profiting all the way up), force an enraged reaction among the public, and take more sovereignty away with the solution of global food regulation.

JUSTIN RAIMONDO: Pro-Obama lefties get slapped down – by the FBI

The Obama Boomerang –

FBI raids on six houses in Minneapolis and Chicago, including the office of the Minneapolis Antiwar Committee, have the antiwar movement – and the left in general – in an uproar. Agents came barging into homes guns drawn, kicking down doors and smashing furniture, armed with search warrants. The warrantsdescribed, in suitably vague terms, allegations of “material support for terrorism.” No arrests were made, although a number of individual activists were served with subpoenas demanding their appearance before a grand jury. Computers, documents, phones, and other materials were carted away by burly FBI agents, who appeared at 7 a.m. sharp, locked and loaded.

Let the frame-ups begin!

U.S. Is Working to Ease Wiretaps on the Internet

WASHINGTON — Federal law enforcement and national security officials are preparing to seek sweeping new regulations for the Internet, arguing that their ability to wiretap criminal and terrorism suspects is “going dark” as people increasingly communicate online instead of by telephone.

Essentially, officials want Congress to require all services that enable communications — including encrypted e-mail transmitters like BlackBerry, social networking Web sites like Facebook and software that allows direct “peer to peer” messaging like Skype — to be technically capable of complying if served with a wiretap order. The mandate would include being able to intercept and unscramble encrypted messages.

Computer attacks linked to a wealthy group or nation

Lolita C. Baldor
Associated Press

WASHINGTON — A powerful computer code attacking industrial facilities around the world, but mainly in Iran, probably was created by experts working for a country or a well-funded private group, according to an analysis by a leading computer security company.

The malicious code, called Stuxnet, was designed to go after several "high-value targets," said Liam O Murchu, manager of security response operations at Symantec Corp. But both O Murchu and U.S. government experts say there's no proof it was developed to target nuclear plants in Iran, despite recent speculation from some researchers.

FBI raids war protesters' homes

The FBI raided the homes of five political activists and an office Friday in Minneapolis as part of an investigation into possible links between local anti-war activists and terrorist groups in Colombia and the Middle East.

An FBI spokesman said agents were "seeking evidence related to an ongoing Joint Terrorism Task Force investigation into activities concerning the material support of terrorism."

"There is no imminent threat to the community, and we're not planning any arrests at this time," said FBI Special Agent Steve Warfield of the Minneapolis office.

The homes of Anti-War Committee organizers Mick Kelly, Jess Sundin and Meredith Aby were among those searched. The organization's office also was searched.

"I have no idea what all this is about," said Kelly's attorney, Ted Dooley. "Mr. Kelly is an activist; he's a socialist or perhaps a communist and has been forever. He never hides his political views. They're fishing. They're casting big nets into the sea of political activism."

Breast cancer cases fell as HRT use dropped: study

Breast cancer rates fell as women turned away from hormone replacement therapy(HRT), a study has shown, boosting understanding of how the two are linked.

Use of HRT to combat the effects of the menopause halved in Britain after studies suggested it could increase the risk of breast cancer.

A study conducted in Canada has now found that as use of the treatment dropped, the number of cases of breast cancer detected also reduced.

However after several years breast cancer rates began to increase again which, researchers said, suggests that not using HRT simply led to their tumours growing more slowly.

The hormone, oestrogen, contained in some forms of HRT can fuel certain types of breast cancer.

Alcohol Lobby Now Openly Spending Against CA's Legal Pot Initiative in Alliance with Police Industrial Complex

According to the California Secretary of State's office, the beer lobby donated $10,000 to Public Safety First on September 7, 2010. The donation came just days before PSF issued an online mailing alleging that the passage of Prop. 19 -- which would legalize the private adult use and cultivation of limited amounts of cannabis, and allow local governments the option of regulating its commercial production and retail distribution -- would inevitably lead to stoned school bus drivers and crossing guards, and will cause California public schools to "lose as much as $9.4 billion in federal funding." (Needless to say, passage of the measure would do none of these things.)

ALAN SABROSKY — THE COMPLICATED FACES OF ANTI-SEMITISM

Anti-Semitism Reconsidered

By Dr. Alan Sabrosky

I cannot speak for the situation elsewhere, but in the US, I doubt if there is another definable group that equals or surpasses Jews in their achievements in so many different fields, their support for civil liberties and civil rights, and their philanthropy or general support of charitable causes.

But, when Israel enters the equation, those truly admirable qualities are often set aside. Israeli bigotry, atrocities and crimes against humanity are largely ignored, excused or vociferously supported, and Jewish-dominated institutions such as the mainstream media pointedly refrain from publishing or reporting blatant contemporary examples of Israeli misconduct.

Obama argues his assassination program is a "state secret"

At this point, I didn't believe it was possible, but the Obama administration has just reached an all-new low in its abysmal civil liberties record. In response to the lawsuit filed by Anwar Awlaki's father asking a court to enjoin the President from assassinating his son, a U.S. citizen, without any due process, the administration last late night, according to The Washington Post, filed a brief asking the court to dismiss the lawsuit without hearing the merits of the claims. That's not surprising: both the Bush and Obama administrations have repeatedly insisted that their secret conduct is legal but nonetheless urge courts not to even rule on its legality.

A Suspected Terrorist Speaks

The public became aware of Michael Finton September 24th, 2009. That’s when he appeared in a Springfield court facing alarming charges, especially for sleepy Springfield, Illinois. Finton was not being charged with fraud. It was not rape. Finton was not being charged with assault and robbery, as he was convicted of in 1999. No, Finton was there facing charges of terrorism.

He was arrested after calling a cell phone twice. It’s charged he called the cell phone to detonate a van packed full of explosives that he parked downtown. That was nearly a year ago. Now, the man, known as Talib Islam, is in legal limbo.

On Friday, Harris County Texas officials sprayed insecticide throughout multiple neighborhoods in order combat West Nile Virus. Sounds noble right?

This is open depopulation. The chemicals that are being sprayed directly into multiple neighborhoods are TOXIC. They damage wildlife, kill fish and are toxic to humans. Why is this going unnoticed?

This is very similar to spraying Corexit on the population! The only difference is that government agencies aren’t covering up this chemical rape as they are with dispersant spraying near the oil disaster.

Obama at the UN: The Arrogant Voice of Imperialism

President Barack Obama used his speech at the United Nations General Assembly Thursday to defend US wars and state terror abroad and to proclaim that the economic crisis has been resolved thanks to his Wall Street bailout.

The US president received a noticeably tepid response from the assembled UN delegates. While in his first address to the body last year, he was able to pose as a fresh alternative to the crimes carried out by the Bush administration, by now it has become clear to most on the international stage that his administration’s policies are largely in continuity with those of its predecessor.

Alternative Media and Ahamadinejad's Speech. Total Silence! Total Censorship.

I looked at Alternet, CommonDreams, Truthout, DemocracyNow, Counterpunch, antiwar.com. I did see a small mention of the speech on DemocracyNow, as part of their news rundown. No details. I didn't see anything on antiwar.com's listing of headlines around the world that normally would have had information about the speech.

I think this is a clear indication that our progressive and independent alternative media is completely controlled. By whom? Well, it seems by the big foundations that help fund these sites. If you go to the foundational support for any of these sites, you will find foundations that link back to the likes of the Rockefeller Foundation, the Ford Foundation, Charles Steart Mott Foundation, McKnight Foundation, Joyce Foundation, and many others.

Michel Chossudovsky explains in his article at Global Research, "Manufacturing Dissent", that this funding is part of a plan by the elites to actually control the content and actions of the so called "people's movement", in that while allowing these groups to actively dissent against the globalization movement of the international powerful elites, they actively fund them so that limits can be placed where necessary.

The administration is clearly thinking beyond Afghanistan (and even Iran), anticipating the next battlefronts in Yemen and Somalia. It is assiduously gathering resources to enter the fray, including setting up business fronts that can be used by covert operatives.

Why go through the subterfuge? First there is the American side of the story. Given the shrinking public support for Afghanistan, the White House does not want to telegraph that it is planning escalation into yet another war or even two wars, depending on how you count them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government, State Department, and the Pentagon appear to be gearing up for wars without end.

What I cannot understand is the absence of fury on the part of the American people about what their government is getting ready to do with their tax dollars and in their name, while infrastructure here crumbles, and homeless Veterans sleep in our streets.

IAEA rejects resolution calling on Israel to join Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the United Nations' nuclear watchdog, has rejected an Arab-proposed resolution calling on Israel to join a global anti-atomic arms treaty.

The general assembly of the 151-member IAEA blocked the resolution at its meeting in Vienna on Friday. Fifty-one member states voted against the resolution while 46 voted in favour and 23 abstained.

Israel had warned the UN nuclear watchdog that an Arab-led push to target the Jewish state in a resolution could deal a "fatal blow" to future co-operation on boosting Middle East security.

"Adopting this resolution will be a fatal blow to any hope for future co-operative efforts towards better regional security in the Middle East," Ehud Azoulay, Israel's IAEA envoy said, shortly before the vote.

The delegate made the statement during a tense debate on the draft resolution, which called on Israel to join the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

FBI terrorism warrants in Minn., Chicago; include anti-war group members

Minneapolis — Members of a Minneapolis anti-war group say FBI agents raided their homes Friday morning.

FBI spokesman Steven Warfield confirmed that agents working with a federal Joint Terrorism Task Force served six search warrants in Minneapolis and two in Chicago. Warfield said the FBI is seeking "evidence relating to activities concerning the material support of terrorism."

The homes of Minneapolis anti-war activists Mick Kelly, Jess Sundin and Meredith Aby were among those searched, activists said at a press conference Friday afternoon. Aby said she and several others also received subpoenas Friday to appear before a grand jury next month.

Sundin said agents took boxes of papers, her cell phone and CDs from her home. Sundin said her group, the Anti-War Committee, opposes U.S. involvement in civil wars in other countries.

Sundin said she wasn't arrested, nor were some of the other activists whose homes were raided.

IS Harris County Openly Poisoning Citizens in the Name of Mosquito Control?

On Friday, Harris County Texas officials sprayed insecticide throughout multiple neighborhoods in order combat West Nile Virus. Sounds noble right?

This is open depopulation. The chemicals that are being sprayed directly into multiple neighborhoods are TOXIC. They damage wildlife, kill fish and are toxic to humans. Why is this going unnoticed?

This is very similar to spraying Corexit on the population! The only difference is that government agencies aren’t covering up this chemical rape as they are with dispersant spraying near the oil disaster.

President Obama’s Ahistorical World : by Dr. Lawrence Davidson

We can surmise two probable reasons why Abbas is presently sitting at the table with the Israelis: One – the Obama administration has twisted his arm, perhaps by threatening to abandon him if he does not “negotiate.” They probably hope they can pressure him into signing a “peace” deal that no other Palestinian leader would ever touch.

ARCHITECTS & ENGINEERS FOR 9/11 TRUTH HIT THE AMERICAN MAINSTREAM

Veterans Today

Nobody in his right mind, nobody with the least critical thinking could possibly buy into the 9/11 official story of the reason why the world trade center towers collapsed – at free fall speed- like a house of cards into their basements in just few seconds- WTC building 7 collapsed in exactly 6.5 seconds. Something only very precise demolition can accomplish, something which takes days if not weeks to prepare.

Whoever planned the 9/11 operation and whoever managed to fool the masses of terrorized people and tricked them into believing that al Qa`ida and its members of Afghanistan cave dwellers pulled this thing off did not consider that scientists and trained specialists would be the ones to finally expose the conspiracy and unravel 9/11 mystery.

There Must Be Something More, Take a Step Back and Look At the Big Picture

It’s easy to become cynical in today’s world, especially for those who follow current events and have a desire to stay informed. Too many people are blind or dulled to both the great evil and goodness in the world. I invite you to take a step back and look at the big picture; notice the beauty that still surrounds us. There is something behind that beauty that is rarely discussed, something that is in our very genetic code and the natural world that we inhabit.

Patriot Richard Fine: His Darkest Moment in the LA County Jail(Nazi Prison)

Richard Fine was held in solitary confinement for 18 months. Basically, this patriot was put in a NAZI type of jail because he exposed judicial corruption in California. Judges throughout California are taking payoffs and illegally helping prosecutors.

This is what happens in America when you expose judicial corruption. You are held like a caged animal and slandered throughout the media. The entire United States judicial system is a system of good old boys that cover for each other no matter how illegal and corrupt one may be.

After morning prayer, we teach the Torah only.” Israel spends 7 million dollars annually on these schools and the government often receives fake and fraudulent progress reports in return.

Rep. Weiner: Glenn Beck's Goldline ‘grossly overcharges’ for gold coins

Talk show host Glenn Beck and Goldline International, a California-based gold retailer, have colluded to use fear mongering tactics to bilk investors, according to a stinging report issued Tuesday by Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.).

The report alleges that Goldline grossly overcharges for the gold coins that constitute the bulk of its business, uses misleading sales techniques and takes advantage of fears about President Barack Obama’s stewardship of the economy – which are stoked by its stable of paid conservative endorsers including Beck, Mark Levin, Laura Ingraham and Fred Thompson – “to cheat consumers.”

“This industry goes beyond Goldline, but the Goldline circle has been particularly cynical in its cultivation of these conservative commentators,” he said. “There are two industries that are intertwined here in this cynical play: the media industry and the online gold industry, and there is a lot of blame to go around.”

The City that Ended Hunger

To begin to conceive of the possibility of a culture of empowered citizens making democracy work for them, real-life stories help—not models to adopt wholesale, but examples that capture key lessons. For me, the story of Brazil’s fourth largest city, Belo Horizonte, is a rich trove of such lessons. Belo, a city of 2.5 million people, once had 11 percent of its population living in absolute poverty, and almost 20 percent of its children going hungry. Then in 1993, a newly elected administration declared food a right of citizenship. The officials said, in effect: If you are too poor to buy food in the market—you are no less a citizen. I am still accountable to you.

Of course nobody among the oligarchic elite, such as Gates, Rockefeller and Monsanto execs, will suffer from the consequences of this failed revolution.

UN REPORT: Israel Flotilla Raid ‘Broke Law’

How could it be otherwise? Piracy is still an offence as is pre-meditated murder, both of which were committed in this instance. What is disgraceful is that such a horrific international crime has been turned into yet another fiasco when swift and decisive action should have been taken from the very beginning – a naval escort provided for the flotilla to complete its journey to Gaza, and the killers responsible arrested under international warrants and brought to trial outside of Israel.

SPREADING FALSEHOODS ABOUT IRAN: “United Against Nuclear Iran”

Decrypting the Shadow behind Hamid Karzai

The tug of war between Kabul and Washington has become so desperate, former CIA Near East, South Asia Chief Dr. Charles Cogan recently opined that the situation was fast approaching a “Diem Moment.” Cogan even suggested that while Diem’s removal had been “horribly botched,” “a removal of Mr. Karzai might turn out to be more straightforward.” Given the similarities to America’s quagmire in Vietnam, invoking Diem raises more than a few dark memories. Yet despite vast differences in the two wars another even more deeply unsettling similarity is emerging. Hamid Karzai is in a political fight for his life like South Vietnam’s Ngo Dinh Diem. But (strange as it might seem) his contradictory behavior and the chaos and corruption surrounding it may be no accident. In fact it could be exactly the consequence that his main neoconservative backer, former RAND director, U.S. Ambassador and Special Presidential Envoy to Afghanistan Zalmay Khalilzad, had long intended.

Horror as mother 'locks her five small children in 6ft closet while she goes out for 10 hours... then comes home to find two dead'

Edyan Farah, 28, allegedly put all five of her children - aged one through to seven - into the small closet and pushed a bed in front of the door so they could not get out.

The closet was 6ft long and about 18in deep.

Farah left for ten and a half hours to visit a friend on Sunday. When she came back to her home in Indianaopolis, she opened the closet to find her five-year-old daughter Zuhur and three-year-old son Zakariya 'stiff and unresponsive'.

She told officers she carried them downstairs but did not call for help or try to revive them.

On the other hand, very few media outlets even commented on the glitch. Al-Jazeera, however, did prosaically refer to the incident as “Ahmadinejad lost in translation.”
