The ISIS Terror Threat in Stockholm

April 27, 2016

 
Stockholm, the largest city in Scandinavia, is under a terror threat as it prepares for the king's 70th birthday and the Eurovision song festival. Why would any truly Islamic group want to attack Stockholm?


The headline in the Jewish-owned tabloid Daily Express (UK) screams:  "SWEDEN is on high alert after depraved Islamic State (ISIS) thugs 'arrived' in the capital city of Stockholm ready to launch a deadly terror attack on innocent civilians." This is blatant fear-mongering aimed at increasing support for the Zionist fraud known as the War on Terror.


BRIAN JENKINS ON THE PURPOSE OF TERRORISM:  "Terrorism is aimed at the people watching, not at the actual victims. Terrorism is theater… The normal objective of state or official terrorism is to enforce obedience and cooperation... Success demands the creation of an atmosphere of fear and the seeming omnipresence of the internal security apparatus." 
- Brian Michael Jenkins, "International Terrorism: A New Kind of Warfare," Rand Corporation, June 1974

During the past few days the Swedish press has been warning the public that ISIS is planning to attack Stockholm less than a week before the king's 70th birthday and two weeks before the Eurovision song festival.

As NBC News reports on April 27:  "Sweden Warned of Possible ISIS Attack Plot Targeting Stockholm"

Iraq's government has warned Sweden that the government-like terrorist organization ISIS may be considering hitting the European country's capital, Stockholm.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to NBC News, said Iraq found intelligence "about an ISIS plan to target the Swedish capital Stockholm," involving seven or eight Iraqi citizens who were former members of al-Qaeda in Iraq.

"Those ISIS militants are Iraqis, and were able to arrive to Sweden in 2015 with those thousands who emigrate from different countries to Europe," the official said.

Counterterrorism expert Magnus Ranstorp told NBC News that Europe's refugee crisis could have made it possible for ISIS militants to enter Sweden:  "There were so many refugees who came in at once, many on false identities, so many were not checked or registered properly," Ranstorp said. "It would be easy for them to hide and move around quite freely, also difficult for the police to trace them."

The Local, a Swedish news source, reported that Reuters cited an Iraqi security source saying that six Iraqis had left Iraq in February 2015, entering Sweden via Turkey: “They want to conduct special operations to force Sweden to withdraw from the international military coalition [against ISIS].”

The U.S. Embassy in Stockholm warned Americans in Europe to stay alert and “when in public places or using mass transportation. Be aware of immediate surroundings and avoid crowded places. Exercise particular caution during religious holidays and at large festivals or events.”

WHY SWEDEN?

There are several questions about this terror threat that need to be asked.  Firstly, why are the authorities letting this threat be announced to the public? They receive threats like this all the time, but this one is being shouted from the rooftops.  Why?

Secondly, why would any truly Islamic group want to attack Stockholm? There is no logic in them doing such a thing. 

So, if we change our approach and consider that this threat is not from a truly Islamic source but is coming from an Israeli/Zionist-controlled terror group, which is known as ISIS, it all makes much more sense.

IS THE THREAT ISLAMIC - OR ISRAELI?

Firstly, the threat of terrorism puts fear into the hearts and minds of the Swedish public and reinforces the idea that Swedes and other Europeans need to be actively engaged in the fraudulent Zionist war agenda known as the War on Terror.

Secondly, it advances the notion long pushed by the Israeli terrorist regime (Likud) headed by Benjamin Netanyahu that European Christian culture is under attack by radical Islam. In this way it promotes the clash of civilizations and the Zionist construct known as the War on Terror, the global fraud that was kick-started by the false-flag attacks of 9/11.

Thirdly, the threat of terrorism may cause many Swedes to re-consider the idea of Sweden joining NATO.

Whatever comes of this threat, we need to remember the words of Brian Jenkins:  "Terrorism is aimed at the people watching, not at the actual victims. Terrorism is theater… The normal objective of state or official terrorism is to enforce obedience and cooperation." 

TERRORIZE THE PUBLIC

The threat of terrorism is just as effective as terrorism itself.  It works to terrorize the public.  To understand why Zionists would want to scare the public of Scandinavia and Europe, I offer this bit from my book, Solving 9-11:  The Deception that Changed the World:

LAVON - TERRORIZE THE WEST

Pinhas Lavon, Israel's minister of defense at the time of the terror bombings, was part of a group of military leaders who advocated the use of terrorism against the Western nations, particularly Britain and the United States.  This group included the Polish-born immigrants David Ben Gurion and Shimon Peres (Szymon Persky), and Moshe Dayan, the kibbutznik son of Ukrainian immigrants.

In January 1955, [Prime Minister and Foreign Minister] Sharett wrote about Lavon to Aharon Barkatt, secretary general of the Mapai party:

He [Lavon] inspired and cultivated the negative adventuristic trend in the army and preached the doctrine that not the Arab countries but the Western Powers are the enemy, and the only way to deter them from their plots is through direct actions that will terrorize them…

[Shimon] Peres shares the same ideology [as Lavon]: he wants to frighten the West into supporting Israel's aims.

The Crimocracy and the War on Terror

April 21, 2016

What follows is ever closely linked to what precedes; it is not a procession of isolated events, merely obeying the laws of sequence, but a rational continuity. 
– Marcus Aurelius, Meditations (180 A.D.)

Nothing on earth can ever justify a crime… If you grant an amnesty to the past, you are corrupting the future. 
– Benjamin Constant, Des Effets de la Terreur (1797)


EXCUSING FELLOW CRIMINALS - President Barack Obama gave a blanket amnesty to George W. Bush in January 2009, saying he had “a belief that we need to look forward as opposed to looking backwards.”

The War on Terror is a massive fraud that has affected the entire world. This fraudulent Zionist Zeitgeist was kick-started by the false-flag terror attacks of 9-11. The United States is, without a doubt, the nation most profoundly affected by the criminal fraud known as the War on Terror.

The United States has been actively engaged in the War on Terror since September 11, 2001, and has waged two major wars under the rubric of fighting terrorism – in Afghanistan and Iraq.  The direct consequences of waging these wars include more than a million lives lost and trillions of dollars wasted.  As a result, Americans have seen neither peace nor prosperity since 9-11.

Although the fifteen-year fraud known as the War on Terror has plundered our national wealth and ruined untold thousands of American lives, there is not a single presidential candidate calling for an end to this fraudulent ideological and military campaign.  How can it be that not a single candidate for the presidency of the United States dares to even address the most obvious criminal fraud that is destroying the hope of peace and prosperity for America?  Why is there not even one leading presidential candidate who is willing to promise peace in our time?

Apart from being a colossal waste, the War on Terror has also been extremely counter-productive.  In both Afghanistan and Iraq, the two main theatres of the U.S.-led War on Terror, terrorism took the lives of more people in 2015 than in any other year in history. Globally, acts of terrorism are more than ten times more frequent now than they were before we became engaged in this massive criminal fraud back in 2001.

To understand the criminal nature of the War on Terror one need only grasp that both U.S.-led interventions waged in its name, in Afghanistan and Iraq, are in fact “wars of aggression,” i.e. criminal wars waged without the justification of self-defense.  Under international law, the “planning, preparation, initiation, or waging of wars of aggression” constitutes “a crime against peace” – the supreme war crime as defined by the Nuremberg Tribunal in 1950.


The U.S. invasion of Iraq was a costly disaster for the United States that served no U.S. national interest.


Israel's prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Israelis that the Zionist state benefited from "one thing, and that is the attack on the Twin Towers and Pentagon, and the American struggle in Iraq."

If the War on Terror is so costly, criminal, and counter-productive, why is it that not a single presidential candidate in the United States is willing to demand an end to it?

The War on Terror, which doubled defense spending in the United States after 9-11, benefits a tiny elite group of criminals at the top of the U.S. political establishment at the expense of the nation as a whole and the great majority of the American population. This tiny group of criminals, however, controls both political parties and the circus-like sham we call elections.  This is why, in spite of changing administrations, we see a complete and uninterrupted continuity of the criminal policies that have destroyed the hopes of peace and prosperity in America.

The U.S. intervention in Iraq, for example, which began in 1991 under George H.W. Bush, has now continued through seven administrations.  The last four, under George W. Bush and Barack Obama, have clearly engaged in war crimes related to the criminal war of aggression connected with the invasion of Iraq in 2003.

Another example of the continuity of criminal policies is the job-destroying NAFTA agreement. This “free trade” agreement, which decimated the American manufacturing sector, was prepared during the Republican administration of George H.W. Bush but passed in 1993, the first year that Democrat Bill Clinton occupied the White House.  Rahm Emanuel, Clinton’s special Israeli Mossad advisor, is credited with single-handedly getting the destructive legislation passed through Congress.

Do the different presidential candidates go along with the Zionist construct known as the War on Terror and its wars of aggression because there is a consensus that these are good policies that are beneficial to the nation?

No; of course not.  The selected presidential candidates go along with these criminal policies because they themselves are either part of or beholden to the crimocracy that dictates these policies.

The shared criminal activities of the Clinton and Bush families that are documented go back to the days of Iran-Contra, in which Israeli intelligence played the lead role. As they say, nothing binds people more closely together than a crime committed together. One of the most important criminal functions these people provide for each other is covering-up for each other.

The War on Terror and other pro-war and anti-prosperity policies are clearly destructive to the American republic and its people, but because these policies serve the elite criminal cabal that runs the United States, they continue without being contested or debated.

Peace and prosperity are what people around the world expect and demand from their governments and these are exactly what Americans most sorely need after fifteen years of the criminal fraud known as the War on Terror.

We can have neither peace nor prosperity if we allow this fraud to go on, which is why we must demand that the candidates who want our support address the issue of ending the War on Terror. Any candidate who does not call for an immediate end to the War on Terror is not worth voting for.

The Zionist War on Terror Creates More Terror

December 3, 2015

If there’s one thing the “war on terror” has excelled at, it is creating more war – and if there is a second, it is creating more terror.
"The entire ‘war on terror’ has been a lie – and these charts prove it" 
by 
Rebecca Sumner, TheCanary.co, November 28, 2015


The "War on Terror" has created more war – and more terror...
(Graphics: R. Sumner) 


in Iraq...


in Afghanistan...


and in Syria, among other places.


So, in reality, what is the "War on Terror"?  Where did it come from?


AN ISRAELI WAR STRATEGY - The "War on Terror" is a massive Zionist/Israeli fraud that has been based on lies and deception since it was first conceived by Benjamin Netanyahu and his 'institute of terrorism' in Israel in the 1970s. The "War on Terror" deception is the subject of my Solving 9-11 books.


NETANYAHU'S MISSION - From 1976 to 1978, Benjamin Netanyahu worked for the Boston Consulting Group, a firm connected to the Rothschild family.  In 1979, 
with his father, Benzion, Netanyahu co-founded an institute on terrorism.  They then organized an international conference in Jerusalem that emphasized the need for Western nations to fight terror groups (the groups opposed to Israeli occupation) - and the regimes supporting them.  The terrorism data that Netanyahu used to make his case at the conference was exaggerated and fraudulent.  George H.W. Bush spoke at the conference.

THE JERUSALEM CONNECTION 
from my 2013 article 
"Obama's Trip to Birthplace of War on Terror"

"In the summer of 1979, a group of powerful and influential people joined to launch an international propaganda offensive to promote and exploit the issue of 'international terrorism'," Philip Paull of San Francisco State University wrote in his 1982 thesis on the Jerusalem Conference on International Terrorism. "The propaganda 'blitz' originated in Jerusalem. The conspiratorial network included present and former members of the Israeli and United States governments...

"This 'anti-terrorist' propaganda campaign was and is being conducted in a style reminiscent of wartime 'psychological warfare' by journalists serving as conduits and spreaders of misinformation originating in Jerusalem," Paull wrote in his thesis...

As Paull demonstrates in his thesis, "the entire notion of 'international terrorism' as promoted by the Jerusalem Conference rests on a faulty, dishonest, and ultimately corrupt information base." This is equally true of the official versions of the terror attacks of 1993 and 2001. They are nothing more than packs of lies designed to place the blame on Arabs and Muslims.

The American people have been the primary target of the vicious 'psychological warfare' waged by the Israeli government. The purpose of the Israeli psychological warfare is to create fear through false-flag terrorism like 9-11 in order to impose the Zionist fraud known as the "War on Terror". I have done my utmost to provide an antidote to this fear and deception with my book, Solving 9-11: The Deception that Changed the World.

...

"The heightened global media coverage of 'international terrorism'", Paull wrote, "was for the most part a result of a deliberate, well-financed, international propaganda campaign initiated by the Israeli government."

The theme of 'international terrorism' "was used to portray the 'Free World', including Israel, as essentially on the defensive before a virtual epidemic of terrorism which treatened the very fabric of civilization," Paull wrote. "But in order to transfigure 'international terrorism' into a political bubonic plague, it was necessary to produce false and misleading 'information', or misinformation." Paull's thesis explains how the Netanyahu institute and the Israeli government used misinformation to "deliberately exploit the emotions of fear and anxiety."


MEET THE MILEIKOWSKY'S - Benjamin Netanyahu and his father, Benzion Mileikowsky from Warsaw, Poland. Benzion was the executive secretary for Vladimir Jabotinsky, the founder of Revisionist Zionism, which calls for the military conquest of all of Palestine and expulsion of the non-Jewish population. His son, Bibi, has furthered these goals. 9-11 was an essential part of the Zionist deception, a terror spectacle designed to change U.S. public opinion and drag the United States military into the Middle East - to fight Israel's enemies. 


NETANYAHU THE ARCHITECT OF TERROR - Netanyahu's first book, International Terrorism: Challenge and Response, is based on the speeches given at the Jerusalem conference in 1979.  Netanyahu has made a career of pushing the Israeli war strategy known as the "War on Terror". It is a strategy of conquest in which the United States and its allies fight wars in the Middle East on behalf of the Zionist state and its war agenda.  Creating a greater state of Israel, a goal of the terrorist groups that created the Likud party in the 1970s, is part of the plan.


This is why Ehud Barak, Netanyahu's former commander in the Sayeret Matkal covert commando force, was ready in the BBC World television studio in London on 9-11 - ready to prompt the world to begin "an operational, concrete, war against terror" before either of the Twin Towers had even collapsed. Co-incidence?  Not a chance.


This is why "Solving 9-11 Ends the War" is the theme of my presentations. This is because when enough people understand that the "War on Terror" is a massive Zionist/Israeli deception that is actually designed to create more war and terrorism, we can put an end to the whole evil madness.  But, we can't end it as long as so many people are deceived and do not understand the real source of the problem.

“Frighten the West”: The Israeli Roots of Terrorism

Updated November 22, 2015


THE FATHER OF TERRORISM - Menachem Begin, the terrorist founder of Israel's ruling Likud party, bragged about being "the father of terrorism in all the world." The Likud party is now headed by Benjamin Netanyahu.

“How does it feel, in the light of all that’s going on, to be the father of terrorism in the Middle East?”
“In the Middle East?” he [Begin] bellowed, in his thick, cartoon accent. “In all the world!”
- Russell Warren Howe interview with Menachem Begin, January 1974


The "War on Terror" is a Zionist fraud based on lies, deception, and illusion.

He [Pinhas Lavon] inspired and cultivated the negative adventuristic trend in the army and preached the doctrine that not the Arab countries but the Western Powers are the enemy, and the only way to deter them from their plots is through direct actions that will terrorize them.
- Israeli prime minister Moshe Sharett in 1955 writing about Pinhas Lavon, defense minister during the “Lavon Affair,” an Israeli false-flag terrorist bombing campaign against U.S. and British agencies in Egypt, July 1954.


FELLOW TERRORISTS SHIMON PERES AND YITZHAK SHAMIR

"Peres shares the same ideology [as Lavon]:  he wants to frighten the West into supporting Israel’s aims.”
- Israeli prime minister Moshe Sharett writing about Shimon Peres, 1955

The “War on Terror” is a massive fraud based on deception and illusion. As long as Western governments and societies allow themselves to be deceived about the true nature of terrorism, the “War on Terror” and the threat it is meant to eradicate will only get worse.  For our political leaders and media to go along with false-flag deceptions and to flail away at phantoms is to ensure that the “War on Terror” will go on for a very long time.  The only way to liberate ourselves and our nations from this madness is to expose the true source of terrorism.

So, here we are, fourteen years after 9-11, having waged two wars of aggression in which millions of lives have been ruined, having endured the imposition of draconian “anti-terrorism” legislation, and having wasted trillions in the “War on Terror” – and still there is no end in sight.  

In spite of all this effort and money spent, the threat of global terrorism seems to gaining strength every day, as we can see from the recent downing of the Russian plane in the Sinai and the attacks in Paris. Clearly, we must be doing something wrong.


The "War on Terror" is like the "Wac-a-Terrorist" game in which Western nations pound Middle Eastern nations in response to acts of terrorism. The United States invaded Afghanistan and Iraq based on false claims that they were involved in the terrorism of 9-11. (Cartoon by Peter Brookes)

It should be obvious to anyone who thinks about terrorism and the global “War on Terror” that we have utterly failed to understand and address the root causes of terrorism.  This is true whether we are talking about false-flag terrorism, such as 9-11, or real ‘terrorism’, such as what we see when Palestinians take up arms against the Israeli occupation.

In the latter case, our leaders and the so-called “international community” have completely failed to address the grievous injustices suffered by the Palestinians living under Israeli occupation since 1948.

The day after the recent attacks in Paris, Margot Wallstrom, the Swedish foreign minister, appeared on Swedish TV and explained how the Israeli occupation was at the root of Palestinian violence, saying, “… you come back to situations like that in the Middle East where not least the Palestinians see that there isn't any future (for them). (The Palestinians) either have to accept a desperate situation or resort to violence."


SWEDEN'S MARGOT WALLSTROM - "...
the Palestinians see that there isn't any future (for them). (The Palestinians) either have to accept a desperate situation or resort to violence."

Unfortunately, there are few politicians in the Western world who are willing to articulate such common-sense truths, and even fewer who are willing to do something about it.  Because the global community has failed to put pressure on Israel, the Zionist occupation has grown and intensified creating an unjust situation that produces violence, as it will until an equitable solution is found.

As for false-flag terrorism, such as 9-11 and other atrocities, there is an appalling lack of moral courage on the part of world leaders to stand up and say that we have been deceived about what happened on 9-11. The failure on the part of our political, religious, and academic leaders to challenge the false narrative of 9-11 has enabled the fraudulent “War on Terror” to go on, at great expense to our nations and societies.


PHOTOGRAPHIC PROOF OF A FRAUD - This photo of the east corner of the South Tower clearly shows what appears to be a thermite reaction occurring between the 80th and 81st floors about 7 minutes before it collapsed. Note the white smoke being produced by the reaction. This is aluminum oxide, one of the products of a thermite reaction. The others are extreme heat (about 2,500 C.) and molten iron (in the case of iron oxide being the oxidizer.)


MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF MOLTEN IRON - The thermite reaction seen one minute earlier produced a massive cascade of molten metal, presumably iron, that flowed until the building was demolished. These photographs are evidence that the government blatantly lied about what really happened to the Twin Towers. The NIST engineers who supposedly investigated the causes of the collapse lied to the public saying they were unaware of the presence of molten metal in the debris. (For more on the 
NIST 9-11 Cover-up, read the two articles in the sources at the end of this article.)

Rather than demanding an investigation of 9-11 and working from what the evidence proved, our leaders allowed themselves to be deceived into war based on false media reports and lies from government officials.  The fact that the ‘crime of the century’ was not even investigated as a crime does not seem to disturb the political and media elites in the United States. A false narrative was prepared ahead of time, as were military assets, and the war in Afghanistan began before the dust had even settled at the World Trade Center.  The French military response after the recent attacks in Paris was even hastier, coming only two days later.

Today, fourteen years after 9-11, the terrorism that we are experiencing is beginning to look very much like that depicted in the Israeli-produced film, Brazil.  This film, produced in 1985 by Arnon Milchan, Israel’s super-agent in Hollywood, is set in a bleak society in the future where senseless acts of terrorism occur frequently as the government wages war against terrorists in some distant land.  Why did Milchan make this movie?  Where did he get these ideas from?


Arnon Milchan between his friend Shimon Peres (left) and Benjamin Netanyahu, the promoter of the "War on Terror" and current prime minister.

We need to understand that Arnon Milchan is not just another Mossad agent in Hollywood; he is at the very top of the Israeli state intelligence/criminal network.  In the Israeli-written biography, Confidential:  The Life Of Secret Agent Turned Hollywood Tycoon (2011), it is revealed how Milchan was involved in espionage, big-ticket arms-dealing, and obtaining sensitive technology and materials for Israel's nuclear weapons program.

Interviewed regarding Milchan's intelligence activities, Israeli President Shimon Peres stated:

Arnon is a special man. It was I who recruited him… When I was at the Ministry of Defense, Arnon was involved in numerous defense-related procurement activities and intelligence operations. His strength is in making connections at the highest levels… His activities gave us a huge advantage, strategically, diplomatically and technologically.

The authors established that "at least through the mid-1980s [Milchan] was a full-fledged operative for Israel’s top-secret intelligence agency, Lakam. His activities included "buying components to build and maintain Israel’s nuclear arsenal" and supervising "government-backed accounts and front companies that financed the special needs of the entirety of Israel’s intelligence operations outside the country."


MOSSAD'S MAN IN HOLLYWOOD - Milchan "...
was a full-fledged operative for Israel’s top-secret intelligence agency, Lakam" and was involved in criminal smuggling of components to build and maintain Israel’s illegal nuclear arsenal, yet he has never been arrested and charged.

Milchan clearly occupies a position at the very top of Israeli intelligence.  Although he was at the center of an operation that smuggled hundreds of triggers for nuclear bombs to Israel, he was never prosecuted, while the people beneath him were.

The terrorism in Milchan’s film Brazil made in the 1980s shows amazing prescience of our world today.  Milchan showed similar prescience of the events of 9-11 in his first film, The Medusa Touch (1978), in which a Boeing 747 crashes into a skyscraper.  Later, in 2000, a remotely-hijacked aircraft is flown into the World Trade Center in the pilot episode of “The Lone Gunmen,” a television series produced by Arnon Milchan’s close friend and business partner, Rupert Murdoch.


THE IDEATION OF 9-11 - Arnon Milchan's first film, The Medusa Touch (1978), featured a Boeing 747 crashing into a skyscraper. It seems that 
beginning in the late 1970s, senior Mossad agents began projecting the idea of attacking New York City's tallest towers with planes.

Arnon Milchan, the Mossad Mogul of Hollywood, didn't dream up these terror scenarios on his own.  These plots are based on what Milchan knew about the future plans of Israeli intelligence. He is, after all, a very close personal friend of Shimon Peres, the godfather and chief architect of Israel’s high-tech military and unlawful nuclear arsenal.

More to the point, Shimon Peres has always supported the use of terror to coerce the West to support Israel’s strategic goals. As Israel’s prime minister Moshe Sharett wrote about Shimon Peres in 1955:  “he wants to frighten the West into supporting Israel’s aims.”

As I prove in my Solving 9-11 books, the false-flag terrorism of 9-11 was an Israeli idea from the beginning, first articulated by a former head of the Mossad in the 1970s.  At the same time that Isser Harel was describing how Arab terrorists would attack the tallest towers in New York City, Benjamin Netanyahu was holding an international conference of Western leaders in Jerusalem (1979) to promote the global “War on Terror.” Both concepts are the products of Israeli strategic planners.

Today, Benjamin Netanyahu is the prime minister of Israel and his fraudulent “War on Terror” is in full swing.  Western nations, including France, who seek to overthrow the elected government of Syria, are lining up to bomb a besieged nation that is virtually defenseless.  The French military has now reacted to an unsolved act of terrorism by bombing Syria, as the United States bombed Afghanistan in October 2001 – without presenting any evidence to prove that the true source of the Paris attacks is from Syria.

The day after the attacks in Paris, French President François Hollande said, "An act of war was committed by a terrorist army, DAESH [ISIS], a jihadist army, against France… An act of war prepared, planned, from outside, with outside complicity which an investigation will establish."

This is almost identical to statements from U.S. leaders after 9-11 who took the nation to war saying that evidence to support their case would be presented in the near future.  In the fourteen years since the invasion of Afghanistan, however, we have not seen one piece of evidence linking the Taliban with the events of 9-11. Our government and media were willing partners in the criminal deception that took the U.S. military into Afghanistan. 

From the little we know about the terrorists in Paris, there is certainly not enough evidence to warrant a massive bombing campaign in Syria.  For all we know the terrorists could have been controlled by a non-Syrian agency who wants France to bomb Syria. Now that the French police have killed Abdel Hamid Abaaoud, the Moroccan-Belgian who is said to be the mastermind of the attacks, there will be less information available to find the true source of the terrorism.

We can’t accept that our leaders take our nations to war based merely on deceptions and illusions.  We will never end terrorism and the fraudulent “War on Terror” by lashing out at the terrorist Bogeyman and destroying nations in the process.  The only way to end the fraudulent “War on Terror” is by exposing who is really behind terrorism and ending the deception.

The Attacks in Paris and the Fraudulent War on Terror

November 16, 2015


Syrian passports were found near the dead terrorists, ensuring the public would view Syria as the source of the terrorism. The next day, French aircraft dropped 20 bombs on facilities used by the ISIS militant group in Raqqa, Syria, reportedly striking a command center, a militant-training facility, and an arms depot. Opposition activists in Raqqa reported at least 30 bombs, which they said hit, among other things, a local football stadium, a museum, and medical facilities. The strikes also reportedly knocked out water and electricity in the city of about 200,000 people.


WHO BENEFITS FROM THE DESTRUCTION OF SYRIA? - The U.S. or Israel? 
ISIS is a tool that is used to advance the Zionist fraud known as the "War on Terror."

Terror is theatre... Theatre's a con trick. Do you know what that means? Con trick? You've been deceived.
- John Le Carré, The Little Drummer Girl, 1983

It is not yet clear who exactly perpetrated the Paris attacks, but the French government has blamed ISIS – and U.S. officials have said there is no reason to doubt that assertion.

“Solving 9-11 Ends the War” is the theme of my presentations.
(Bollyn at the Oscars, February 2015, by Mike Chickey)

“Solving 9-11 Ends the War” was the theme of my last speaking tour and, judging from the way things look at this point, it will be the theme of my upcoming tour as well. This is because the 'Friday the 13th' terror atrocity in Paris, which was evidently designed to reinvigorate the “War on Terror,” will most likely produce the intended effect, especially with the French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle approaching the Middle East in the coming days.


The French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle was already on its way to battle ISIS when the 'Friday the 13th' attacks happened in Paris.

What I document in my Solving 9-11 books, and what I explain in my presentations, is that the “War on Terror” is a massive Zionist/Israeli fraud that has been based on lies and deception since it was first conceived by Benjamin Netanyahu and the Netanyahu ‘institute of terrorism’ in Israel in the 1970s.

THE FRAUDULENT "WAR ON TERROR"

What Netanyahu has pushed since the 1970s is the idea that the Western democracies must wage war on Israel’s enemies because, as he says, it is “our common battle.” Israel, according to Netanyahu, is attacked because it is a Western democracy with freedom and liberty and all that.  This is, of course, utter nonsense, but it is the ideological frame of Netanyahu’s fraudulent “War on Terror.” In Netanyahu’s world, the Palestinian resistance movement has no legitimacy or reason to resist Israeli aggression and occupation.

Netanyahu’s fraudulent “War on Terror” was kick-started into action by the terror atrocity of 9-11, which is a huge deception, and the Israeli war agenda is maintained by similar acts of terror, like the 'Friday the 13th' attacks in Paris.

How do the Israelis create and control such acts of terror?  Why do they do it? Why do they create and foster extremist groups?

NETANYAHU'S FRAUD

To grasp the basic Israeli methods and motives for carrying out such acts of false-flag terrorism, I can recommend a few books.  The first explains the Israeli motivation as presented by Benjamin Netanyahu himself:  Terrorism: How the West Can Win (1987) or the later version, Fighting Terrorism: How Democracies Can Defeat Domestic and International Terrorists (2001).  These books explain the essential Netanyahu strategy to bring the military of the U.S. and other western states into the Middle East to wage war on those groups opposed to Israeli occupation and hegemony in the region.


Israel's prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been pushing the fraudulent "War on Terror" on the West for decades. The premise is flawed and the data is cooked but Netanyahu's Zionist war agenda carries on because the West allows itself to be deceived.

The “War on Terror” is a Zionist strategy to bring Western nations into the Middle East to protect Israel and advance the Zionist war agenda; basically to fight for Israel.  Israeli strategists provide the war plans and create the radical groups against which we should now wage war.  If motivation is lacking, acts of terrorism can be provided. This is, in short, what we are now seeing in Paris.

In order to motivate the U.S. and western nations to send their militaries to the Middle East it is necessary to create terror atrocities to affect public opinion to bring it in line with the Israeli war agenda. That is what 9-11 and the terror attacks in Paris are meant to do. This is what the architects of terror spend their days planning at Netanyahu’s ‘institute of terror,’ whatever it calls itself today.

To understand the methods, The Little Drummer Girl (1982) by John Le Carré is a good book to explain the basics about how Israeli intelligence carries out false-flag terror attacks in Europe. Le Carré wrote this book with the help of a former chief of Israeli intelligence and it was published as Israel began its invasion of Lebanon in the summer of 1982, supposedly provoked by the attempted assassination of Shlomo Argov, the Israeli ambassador in London.

The Israeli government, then headed by the notorious arch-terrorist and founder of the Likud, Menachem Begin, however, had been preparing to invade Lebanon when the Palestinian terrorist Abu Nidal provided the pretext.  Begin then blamed Abu Nidal's enemy, the PLO, for the incident, and used the incident as a casus belli for the invasion.

In 1985, the German magazine Der Spiegel asked Abu Nidal if the attack on Argov did not make it appear that he was working for the Israelis, as PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat said, because Abu Nidal knew that Israel wanted to attack the PLO in Lebanon.


 Benjamin Netanyahu is the head of the Likud, which was created by the arch-terrorist Menachem Begin. Terrorism is how the state of Israel was created and how it is maintained to this day.

LEGACY OF TERROR

Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s current prime minister, is the head of the Likud party, a party created by Menachem Begin and a gang of Zionist terrorist leaders from the 1940s. As Netanyahu said in 2012, “Israel and the Likud are inspired by the spirit of Menachem Begin.”

The wave of terrorism that has engulfed the world since the 1970s is very much the result of Menachem Begin’s rise to power.  Begin’s Likud party of terrorists has dominated Israeli politics since the late 1970s. As I explain in Solving 9-11, this is when Israeli intelligence began planning the terror atrocity of 9-11. The ideation of the 9-11 attacks can be seen in the 1978 film,The Medusa Touch, the first film produced by the Mossad agent Arnon Milchan.


IDEATION OF 9-11 TERROR - In the Israeli-produced film The Medusa Touch (1978) the climax was the scene in which a Boeing 747 flew into a skyscraper. This was the first film made by the Mossad agent of Hollywood, Arnon Milchan.

The Israeli use of terrorism to kick-start pre-planned wars of aggression is exactly how the United States was pulled into the “War on Terror” in 2001, and looks very much like what France is dealing with in late 2015.

The young men who carried out the terror atrocity in Paris were obviously radicalized and controlled by an agency that planned and prepared the 'Friday the 13th' attacks. Who is the controlling agency behind these ‘mad-dog’ terrorists? One day later, the French president was quick to blame ISIS, although the true identities of the terrorists were not yet even known.

Like the 9-11 terror attacks, there is also the nagging question of motivation.  Why would supporters of Islamic State commit a terror atrocity in Paris, to bring the wrath and military power of France down on the heads of their group in Syria and Iraq?  How much sense does that make?  Do they want to commit mass suicide for the whole group? How would any authentic Muslim group benefit from such senseless terrorism?

So, whose agenda is advanced by the attacks in Paris? Well, as we can see, the 'Friday the 13th' terrorism has shot Benjamin Netanyahu’s “War on Terror” to the top of the agenda from the G20 summit in Turkey to the presidential debates in the United States. Bibi must be enjoying his apparent success, but for how long? How long will the world be deceived by the Zionist fraud?

Nations of the West, largely deceived by Zionist terror attacks like 9-11 and Paris, have let themselves be dragged into Netanyahu’s fraudulent “War on Terror,” an artificial conflict which is used to create armies of extremists to keep the whole thing going for decades. To be deceived about the true source of terrorism is to be enslaved to the Zionist "War on Terror."

There is, in fact, only one way to put an end to the whole bloody fraud. That is to expose and identify the true source of the terrorist deception behind 9-11 and the “War on Terror,” which is why my tour is called “Solving 9-11 Ends the War.”

 
The Solving 9-11 books reveal the true culprits behind the deception that changed the world.

U.K. Cabinet Member Resigns over Gaza Policy

August 6, 2014


"MORALLY INDEFENSIBLE" - Baroness Warsi resigns from Britain's Cabinet over Gaza Policy
Video Link -
 youtu.be/vy8v5UQJVNs

Baroness Warsi, a senior member of David Cameron's cabinet, resigned on August 5, 2014, citing the British government's failure to take stronger measures to stop Israel's criminal offensive in the Gaza Strip.

A MATTER OF PRINCIPLE

Warsi resigned as a matter of principle saying she was no longer able to support the Cameron government's policy on the escalation of violence in the Israel–Gaza conflict, describing the government's position as "morally indefensible".

In her resignation letter, Warsi wrote that the UK government's "approach and language during the current crisis in Gaza is morally indefensible and is not in Britain’s national interest." Britain's policy regarding Israel's aggression against Gaza is "not consistent with the rule of law and our long support for international justice," Warsi said.

Baroness Warsi also called for an arms embargo against Israel: "It appalls me that the British government continues to allow the sale of weapons to a country, Israel, that has killed almost 2,000 people, including hundreds of kids, in the past four weeks alone. The arms exports to Israel must stop."

Craft Silent About Alleged Role in Boston Bombing

April 11, 2014


Were these two men seen using ear-phones and carrying large black backpacks near the finish line of last year's Boston Marathon working for Craft International?  One thing is certain:  Craft does not want to answer this question.


This is a very relevant question because one of them seems to have left his black backpack behind as he runs from the scene of the bombing.  After the bombing, the FBI said that both bombs had been packed in black backpacks.


The men were part of what appears to have been a team of men involved in some sort of tactical activity.  Why would Craft not want to address the question whether these are their employees, or not?


This is the man who seems to have left his backpack behind, as can be seen in the photo of him running away without his backpack.  The photo also has the caption, "Hey bro, where'd your backpack go?"


Is this what happened to his missing backpack?  Was he part of a team of real terrorists?

In the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing of April 15, 2013, there were allegations made on various websites that employees of Craft International LLC of Dallas, Texas, had been involved in some unexplained activity near the finish line.  The men wore tactical outfits similar to those worn by Craft employees.  I decided to contact Craft and ask them if their employees had been involved at the Boston Marathon.  After several attempts by email and phone, I have not yet gotten a response, yes or no.

The following are the emails that I sent, first to Craft International, then to their parent company, Hayman Capital, which shares the same address:  

Press Question about Boston Bombing 
April 7, 2014

Craft International, LLC
2101 Cedar Springs Road
Dallas, Texas 75201

To: info at thecraft dot comtraining at thecraft dot com

Dear Craft International,

I am a journalist asking questions for the purpose of an article to be published. The questions I am asking herewith are for that purpose.

After the Boston Marathon bombings last April there were numerous photos seen and allegations made that employees of Craft International had been seen near the finish line of the marathon. These men suspected of being Craft personnel were dressed in tactical clothes and caps similar to those worn by Craft employees.

My questions: Was Craft International LLC, any of its employees, or any company affiliated with Craft International LLC involved in any activity near the finish line during the Boston Marathon last April? Was any person connected with Craft International LLC involved in any operation in Boston during last year's Boston Marathon?

I have attached a couple photos of people who are said to be Craft employees or in some way affiliated with the company. Are the two men connected in any way with Craft International LLC?

If they are, can you identify them?

With many thanks,

Christopher Bollyn

Failing to get a response from Craft International, I turned to their parent company, Hayman Capital:

Press Question about Boston Bombing
April 8, 2014

To: ks@haymancapital.com

Dear Mr. Smith,

I am forwarding this question to you because Hayman Capital is connected to Craft International. Can you address this question?

Many thanks,

Christopher Bollyn

I then called Craft International to follow up but did not get through because my phone does not reveal its number, so I called Hayman Capital, which is the financial hedge fund that is run by J. Kyle Bass who is the financier behind Craft International. Craft and Hayman share the same physical address in Dallas.

I spoke with Kent Smith, managing director of Hayman Capital, who told me that he had seen my email but could not comment on it and told me to call Andy Jent, who is the CEO of the company.

If the answer to my questions were a simple "No", why would it be kicked up to the CEO? I sent the question by email to Mr. Jent:

URGENT Press Question about Boston Bombing    
April 8, 2014

To: aj@haymancapital.com

Dear Mr. Jent,

I am a journalist with a few questions about the allegations that Craft personnel were involved in the Boston Marathon last April. I am forwarding these questions to you because of the relationship between your two companies. Kent Smith advised me to direct my questions to you.

With many thanks,

Christopher Bollyn

I did not get a response, so I resent my question the next day:

Fw: URGENT Press Question about Boston Bombing
April 9, 2014

To: aj@haymancapital.com

Dear Mr. Jent,

Will you be able to respond to this question? The question is whether Craft personnel were involved at the Boston Marathon last April?

Thank you,

Christopher Bollyn 

I called Mr. Jent on Friday, April 11, and left another message on his voice-mail.  Why would Hayman Capital and Craft NOT answer these questions, if they were not involved in some activity during the Boston Marathon bombing?

Eastman's Strategy to End the Criminal Regime in Washington

April 4, 2014


Dzhokhar Tsarnaev carried his white or silver colored bag on one shoulder. If his bag contained a heavy shrapnel bomb it would have pulled very hard with the full weight on one strap. The strap on his bag, however, does not appear to be stretched at all nor is his bag distended or sagging. The FBI says both bombs were in dark or black bags. Dzhokhar's bag is certainly not black. So why is he even a suspect? 
Source: "The Boston Bombings - 'Terror is Theatre'"

I received this inspiring call to action from Dick Eastman from Yakima, Washington. The subject line reads:  

The Unbeatable Strategy to Bring Down the Organized Crime Network Running Our Government -

THE BOSTON FRAME-UP CAN BE THEIR DOWNFALL

Here is how we can bring down organized crime in government and media in one stroke.  We have every advantage.  The facts are completely on our side.  We will expose criminality that involves the administration, the DHS, the FBI, the prostitute media — expose and discredit them all — for the world to see.  They will be powerless once exposed.  All that is needed is for millions of Americans to demonstrate that they know the truth that the US government staged terrorism and killed people in order to frame two innocent people for their own political purposes.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was fingered for the Boston Marathon on the basis of one piece of evidence — evidence that the FBI has not shown to the public.  Not even the people who have described the video to us have seen it — they have only been briefed.   But the claim is that this video shows Tamarlan’s brother Dzhokhar dropping his backpack just before the second bomb exploded at the Boston Marathon.  But here is where organized crime in government blundered fatally.

Dzhokhar's backpack was white with black trim.  His brother’s backpack was gray.

But Richard DesLauriers, the head of the Joint Task Force in charge of the investigation and manhunts stated clearly during the first press conference that "both bombs" were in "black nylon bags or backpacks."  The FBI released a picture of the backpack that carried the second bomb, the one Dzhokhar was supposed to have dropped — that backpack is black:

In fact it matches the backpack that this man working with Homeland Security was wearing, the man with the tan pants and the very heavily padded black jacket.



But Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was wearing a white backpack.

But the only reason Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev were identified as suspects was that the FBI said they had a video showing Dzhokhar drop his backpack near the location of the second bomb.  That is the reason given for searching for these two brothers — for hunting them down with a small army.

The Federal Government, the Massachusetts local law enforcement, the prosecutor, the defense team of federal payroll appointed lawyers, and the media are all exposed as guilty of this frame-up of young Moslems who seem to have been exemplary young people.

The innocence of Dzhokhar is obvious — and the manhunt and arrest on what were known by those in charge to be false claims involving hiding the evidence that immediately clears the young man — this is the battle for truth we can win right now!  Expose this falsehood that goes so high and exposes this government's willingness to frame the innocent in order to blame Islam and Chechens — this is a wrong too great for the current power block of organized crime operatives in the Federal government to endure.   They have committed greater crimes, but those are easier to deny.  This crime, if exposed so the whole world knows that the American people know that this was a frame-up, this government crime is big enough and pervasive enough to topple the criminals that have dominated our government and harmed our people — all of us — for far too long.

To win this war will take great personal courage — especially the first ones who speak up — but the sooner everyone stands with them — the sooner will come the total repudiation of the organized crime network.  This will unlock the door — it will justify the people taking the broom and sweeping the murderous syndicate from power in our land.

Don't look around at what others are doing — it is up to you — this is YOUR moment of truth.  When you take their stand, those around you will be emboldened to take their stand with you.   No one needs lead.  We all simply must be the People and let the evidence speak for itself — the evidence they greatly fear - and unified Public Opinion with justice clearly on its side will cleans the infection — and change everything for the better.

Obama's Reckless Criminal War in Afghanistan

February 2, 2014


A weary U.S. soldier in Afghanistan

Three of the Obama administration's policy experts on Afghanistan and Pakistan recently appeared before members of Congress.  During the Congressional oversight hearing these three "experts" were completely unable to give Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) answers to two very fundamental questions about the U.S. war effort: 

How much is the war in Afghanistan costing the U.S. taxpayer?  and,

How many Americans were killed or injured in Afghanistan in the past year?

The three administration officials were James F. Dobbins, Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan for the State Department; Michael J. Dumont, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Afghanistan, Pakistan & Central Asia; and Donald “Larry” Sampler, USAID Assistant to the Administrator in the Office of Afghanistan and Pakistan Affairs.

The fact that these three highly-paid administration experts were ignorant of the most basic facts about the war in Afghanistan was "stunning" in the words of Rep. Gerald Connolly (D-VA).  It is, of course, the American people who will have to pick up the tab for the $663 billion boondoggle in Afghanistan.  That is how much the war has already cost, including $91.5 billion in 2013, and we should be livid that the Obama administration is so reckless about waging its war of aggression in Afghanistan and Pakistan.  The war in Afghanistan is, after all, a war of aggression because after 12 years of war, not one piece of evidence has been presented connecting Afghanistan to the terror attacks of 9-11.  This means that the war in Afghanistan is one giant war crime.

To answer the question about how many U.S. personnel have been killed or wounded in Afghanistan in the past year, I turned toIcasualties.org, which reports that 127 Americans lost their lives in Afghanistan in 2013.  The total number of Americans killed since 2001 is more than 2,309.  The website seems to have stopped counting the number of U.S. wounded in September 2012, but the current figure appears to be about 20,000 U.S. wounded in Afghanistan.

This 6-minute video speaks volumes about the carelessness and recklessness of the Obama administrations war-fighting policies in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and beyond.  It should also raise the most fundamental question about this war, now in its fourteeenth year:  why are we waging this costly and reckless war in Afghanistan?

Killing Peace: The CIA Assassination of Hakimullah Mehsud

November 4, 2013


HAKIMULLAH MEHSUD, the 34-year old leader of the Taliban in Pakistan, was assassinated by a CIA drone the day before peace talks were to begin. 


KILLER DRONE - Why is the U.S. using drones to wage its "War of Terror" in Pakistan?  Is there really a valid strategic reason - or is it all just war profiteering and murder? 

OBAMA ASSASSINATION POLICY IS ILLEGAL

Drone killings are acts of premeditated murder. Premeditated murder is a crime in all fifty states and under federal criminal law. These murders are also the textbook definition of assassination, which is murder by sudden or secret attack for political reasons. In 1976, U.S. President Gerald Ford issued Executive Order 11905, Section 5(g), which states:  "No employee of the United States Government shall engage in, or conspire to engage in, political assassination."
“Five Reasons Drone Assassinations Are Illegal” by Bill Quigley


ONE WEEK EARLIER - The Prime Minister of Pakistan met with President Obama on October 23 and emphasized the need to stop drone attacks in Pakistan.
Source:  US: Sharif meets Obama; drone strikes, Kashmir on agenda

The position of the government of Pakistan is quite clear: It does not consent to the use of drones by the United States on its territory and it considers this to be a violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
- Ben Emmerson, U.N. special rapporteur on counterterrorism and human rights, March 2013

There is a strong feeling in Pakistan that every time there is a process of talks something like this happens...This has been extremely unhelpful.
- Tariq Azim, a spokesman for Nawaz Sharif, November 1, 2013

The government of Pakistan does not see this strike as a strike on an individual, but on the peace process. Americans said they support our efforts at peace. Is this support?
- Pakistan’s Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on the CIA assassination of Hakimullah Mehsud. The Pakistani minister said the U.S. targeted killing was responsible for “murder of peace in this area.”

The fraudulent “War on Terror,” which began on 9-11 with armed drone attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, continues unabated as a "War of Terror" under President Barack Obama. Twelve years after 9-11, we now have a criminal president who maintains a kill-list and uses armed drones to carry out illegal assassinations halfway around the world. 


FLIGHT 175? The bright flashes that preceded the impact of both planes that struck the Twin Towers indicate that the planes were drone aircraft armed with missiles that were fired immediately before impact.


The white flash of the South Tower impact was captured by different cameras.

In the latest installment of the “War on Terror,” a mega-fraud upon which the Obama administration claims to have a legal basis to carry out assassinations, the CIA used its drones to kill a Taliban leader in Pakistan on November 1. What is particularly disturbing about the timing of this assassination is that it occurred on the eve of peace negotiations between the government of Pakistan and the Taliban. Why would the U.S. government sabotage the hopes for peace in Pakistan? I suppose this question can only be answered by the people behind Obama’s illegal policy of targeted killing.

The assassination of Hakimullah Mehsud, the 34-year old leader of the Taliban in Pakistan, with missiles fired from a CIA drone, brought the long-awaited peace talks to a screeching halt just before they were to begin.

Pakistan’s Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, said: "This is not just the killing of one person, it's the death of all peace efforts."

With the negotiations called off after the assassination of Hakimullah, Chaudhry Nisar issued a statement accusing the United States of carrying out “a conspiracy to sabotage the peace talks.

“Our efforts have been ambushed, and it was not an ambush from the front,” Nisar said.

The Taliban militants in Pakistan are ethnic Pashtuns, like the Taliban in Afghanistan. The Taliban in Pakistan demand that Pakistan stop supporting the U.S. war in Afghanistan, and that the Pakistani army withdraw its troops from the tribal areas that border with Afghanistan.

The U.S. assassination of Hakimullah Mehsud is strikingly similar to provocative Israeli actions that are taken whenever there is real movement toward peace negotiations between Palestinians and Israelis. The Israelis have, once again, resorted to their strategy of provocation as they seek a way to scuttle the negotiations with the Palestinians.

Likewise, now that the assassination of Hakimullah Mehsud has sabotaged the nascent peace negotiations between the Pakistani government and the Taliban, we can see that the U.S. government does not really want to achieve peace in Afghanistan or Pakistan. If the United States were truly serious about reaching a peaceful solution with the Taliban it would not have murdered its leader on the eve of peace talks.

There is no obvious and logical explanation why the United States is waging war against the Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan, but it is clearly part of the 9-11 deception. The war in Afghanistan is based on lies and unproven allegations that Osama Bin Laden and his band of 19 Arabs carried out 9-11. The evidence, however, indicates that advanced drone technology and nano-thermite were used to destroy the World Trade Center and attack the Pentagon.

The Israeli army was the first military to develop drone technology, which it had acquired from the United States, for the battlefield in the 1980s. Weaponized drone aircraft on 9-11 were evidently used to stage the false-flag terror attacks to deceive the American people into joining the Israeli fraud known as the “War on Terror,” promoted by Benjamin Netanyahu since the mid-1970s. Ehud Barak, the former Israeli defense minister and prime minister, was the first person to call for the United States to begin a “concrete War on Terror,” which he did on 9-11 from the London studio of the BBC World television -- before the Twin Towers had even collapsed.


Ehud Barak was on BBC World TV on 9-11 blaming Osama Bin Laden and calling for a "War on Terror" - before the first tower was demolished.

President Obama’s proclivity to employ killer drones to assassinate people and wreak terror on the people of Afghanistan and Pakistan may be largely due to the fact that he is beholden to the Crown family of Chicago, a Zionist family of war profiteers with a long history of involvement with Israel and organized crime. The Crown family has a great deal of influence with the weapons contractor General Dynamics, where they control the board of directors. General Atomics, the privately-held company that makes the Predator drone, was formerly a division of General Dynamics.

GENERAL DYNAMICS' ISRAELI CONNECTION

In 2004, under the leadership of the Crown family, General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems business unit in St. Petersburg, Florida, announced that it had created "a strategic alliance with Aeronautics Defense Systems, Ltd.," an Israeli drone manufacturer. Aeronautics Defense Systems Ltd. developed the Unmanned Multi-Application System (UMASa) aerial surveillance tool which the Israeli military uses to "provide a real-time 'bird's eye view' of the surveillance area to combatant commanders and airborne command posts."

The product list of General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems contains a number of Israeli military products, such as Iron Fist, Samson, Bright Arrow, and Shock Absorber.  The company's webpages for these items indicate that they are being produced in conjunction with Israel Military Industries or Rafael (of Israel) and being sold through General Dynamics. 

The final paragraph for each of these Israeli products reads something like this: "General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems and Israel Military Industries (IMI) are teamed to provide vehicle integration and production of Bright Arrow."


BRIGHT ARROW is just one of many Israeli weapons systems sold by General Dynamics.

In this way Israeli weapons systems are being sold by General Dynamics, an American company. There appears to be a very deep and profitable relationship between General Dynamics and the Israeli military, a relationship that has greatly profited the Israelis and the Crown family as a result of the huge increases in U.S. defense spending that followed 9-11.

U.S. Must Dump Israel by Kevin Barrett

Updated October 22, 2013


U.S. DEFENSE SPENDING = $4,000 PER PERSON PER YEAR
U.S. military spending per capita (1962–2015 in 2011 dollars)

WHO GAINS? - The military contractor General Dynamics has profited from the increased defense spending post 9-11. The Henry Crown family of Chicago, one of the Zionist Mob families that made Barack Obama president, controls General Dynamics. Henry Crown's lawyer (and a director of General Dynamics), Albert Jenner, served on the Warren Commission investigating the murder of President Kennedy. Jenner was appointed to investigate whether Oswald (and Jack Ruby) had acted alone or conspired with others. After 9-11, another agent of the Crown family, Gene Corley, headed the engineering investigation of the destruction of the World Trade Center. In both cases the Crown agent supported the official story, and both covered-up events led to costly wars that greatly increased the Crown family fortune. Is this coincidence - or part of the Zionist Mafia agenda?


SOME PERSPECTIVE - The U.S. spends more on the military than the next 10 countries combined. With oceans on both sides and friendly neighbors, why do Americans have to pay so much for defense?

Kevin Barrett has written an excellent piece entitled "To regain respect, US must dump Israel" which I recommend reading. 

The following is an extract from Barrett's latest article:

A disastrous series of wars in the Middle East has bankrupted America. The real cost of these wars is in the trillions of dollars. The American economy is a shambles. The government went into shutdown mode, then emerged on life-support. The whole world is astonished by the pathetic spectacle of the world's supposed sole superpower on the verge of collapse.

Were the wars that have bankrupted the US fought for Israel - not for any conceivable US interest?

If we ask “who gains” from America's 9/11 wars, the answer is obvious: The real beneficiary is Israel, not the United States.

The US has seen its geo-strategic position eroded around the globe - especially in the Middle East, where it has lost its wars of aggression against Iraq and Afghanistan.

Today, all the Americans can do in Iraq is hide in their fortified compound in the Green Zone and wonder why they launched their ill-conceived invasion in the first place. The Iraqi government is too busy fighting Takfiri terrorists, in Syria as well as in Iraq itself, to pay much attention to the advice of American war criminals who seem to be in cahoots with the very Takfiri terrorists they pretend to oppose. And since everyone now knows Bush's tales of Iraqi WMD were lies, “Operation Iraqi Freedom” now appears to have been - at least from the American perspective - worse than pointless.

9-11 and the War in Syria

Updated September 11, 2013

Terror is theatre...Theatre's a con trick. Do you know what that means? Con trick? You've been deceived.
- John Le Carré, The Little Drummer Girl, 1983

The U.S. government insists it has the intelligence to prove it, but the American public has yet to see a single piece of concrete evidence — no satellite imagery, no transcripts of Syrian military communications — connecting the government of President Bashar Assad to the alleged chemical weapons attack last month that killed hundreds of people.
- "Lingering doubts over Syria gas attack evidence” by Zeina Karam and Kimberly Dozier, AP, September 8, 2013

Under the "weak" Obama, militarism has risen perhaps as never before. With not a single tank on the White House lawn, a military coup has taken place in Washington. In 2008, while his liberal devotees dried their eyes, Obama accepted the entire Pentagon of his predecessor, George Bush: its wars and war crimes… Every Tuesday the "humanitarian" Obama personally oversees a worldwide terror network of drones that "bugsplat" people, their rescuers and mourners. In the west's comfort zones, the first black leader of the land of slavery still feels good, as if his very existence represents a social advance, regardless of his trail of blood. 
- John Pilger, “The silent military coup that took over Washington,” Guardian, September 10, 2013

This year, the twelfth anniversary of 9-11, the commemoration of the victims is bound to be overshadowed by the on-going political debate concerning President Obama’s threat to wage war against Syria. The U.S. Senate had actually scheduled a procedural vote for September 11 regarding Obama’s proposed use of force. The timing is no coincidence as these two things, 9-11 and the war in Syria, are closely related and originate from the same source.

WAR OF TERROR

As 9-11 was the seminal event of the “War on Terror,” the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime of Syria is but the latest installment in this Zionist made-for-television serial. Both events are examples of false-flag terrorism in which the atrocity is blamed on the targeted foe without presenting evidence to prove the case.

The Obama administration says it has evidence that Assad is responsible for the chemical attacks but refuses to present this evidence to the public. This is very odd because it wants public opinion to support its proposed use of force. How much sense does it make to claim you have evidence that you don’t show?

It only makes sense if you understand how the “War on Terror” game is actually played. In this game of conquest, terrorism is the tactic, the method that is used to instigate and wage wars against nations that have done nothing to deserve being invaded, but against whom the Zionist war planners want to wage war for some strategic interest or ulterior motive.

TERROR AS THEATRE

In the “War on Terror” game the use of false-flag terrorism is a kind of theatre which is played out for the public to see and be affected by. Its primary purpose is to sway public opinion to support aggression against a targeted foe who is blamed for the atrocity. Because false-flag terror is theatre there is no solid evidence to prove that the blamed foe really committed the atrocity, because he didn’t do it. There can only be fabricated evidence because there is no real evidence to be presented.  Most importantly, there is no real investigation and any attempt to investigate the crime is quickly shut down before it is able to expose the fraud.

In this way the “War on Terror” game can be played for decades as the target is movable. In the twelve years since 9-11, for example, we have seen the target moved from Afghanistan to Iraq to Pakistan to Yemen to Libya and now, to Syria and Iran, and these are just some of the targets.

An essential part of the game is pushing the lie to blame the targeted foe for the un-investigated atrocity. Because this is an essential part of the game, the people and politicians who push the lie are complicit in the crime because they are working with the terrorists who actually carried out the atrocity. 


 Both George Bush and Barack Obama are complicit in the 9-11 cover-up, waging wars of aggression, and other serious crimes for which they must be held accountable.

In this way, George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and Michael Chertoff (to name but a few) are complicit in the crimes of 9-11 because they promoted the false-flag deception while preventing and obstructing a proper criminal investigation. Based on the lies about 9-11, Bush initiated two wars of aggression. These are among the most serious crimes a president can commit against his nation. There is ample evidence to bring George W. Bush to trial for treason and it is something that needs to happen.

Barack Obama, however, is also complicit because he too has failed to commission a proper investigation of 9-11. Rather than considering the evidence that the World Trade Center was demolished with sophisticated explosives, the Obama administration increased the war effort in Afghanistan and the use of drones to commit targeted killings in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Yemen.

In May 2009 in Los Angeles, when Vice President Joe Biden was presented with a scientific paper proving that a form of super-thermite had been used to demolish the Twin Towers, he immediately turned on his heel and left the event – with the paper in his hand. 


Joe Biden was having a great time until WeAreChangeLA handed him the peer-reviewed paper by Dr. Steven E. Jones and others that documents the presence of super-thermite in the dust of the World Trade Center. Biden took the paper, turned on his heel, and left the event, disappearing behind his security team.

The Obama administration cannot say they do not have the evidence that explosives were used to destroy the Twin Towers; they know that super-thermite and other explosives were used to kill nearly three thousand Americans on 9-11. That’s the evil game they are playing; they cover-up the mass murder of 9-11 as they prepare to wage their next war of aggression.

To move ahead in the “War on Terror” game, the Obama administration now wants to attack Syria, claiming they have secret evidence that Assad gassed his own people. Once again, we are asked to believe these serious allegations without seeing any evidence. If Obama were to attack Syria it would be the third major war since 9-11 started in this deceitful way.  

The good thing is that the American people and many world powers are strongly opposed to Obama’s proposed use of force against Syria. The only people who actually support Obama’s plan to aggress Syria are the Israelis and their Zionist agents in Congress. That is to be expected, of course, because the fraudulent “War on Terror” is an Israeli game developed and promoted by the Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his military intelligence apparatus.

The bad thing, however, is that the terrorism game is not over yet. The “War on Terror” game will not be over until the people behind it are exposed, removed from office, and prosecuted for the crimes they have committed. This is why a complete and proper criminal investigation of 9-11 has to be done. 

It is certainly not unreasonable to expect that such a criminal atrocity be fully investigated and prosecuted. It did not happen during the Bush administration because the person at the Department of Justice who was originally responsible for the 9-11 investigation and prosecution, the Israeli Michael Chertoff, was part of the conspiracy. He should be one of the first people arrested and charged for his role in the destruction of crucial evidence from the crimes of 9-11.


Michael Chertoff, an Israeli citizen and son of a Mossad officer, oversaw the non-investigation of 9-11 by the FBI in which the crucial evidence was confiscated and destroyed. He should be held accountable for these crimes. 

Twelve years later, we are still demanding – and still need – a complete criminal investigation into the events of 9-11. This is essential because until that happens we will not be able to free ourselves or our nation from the evil deception that has brought us two wars and taken the world to the brink of disaster.

Why Obama and Bush Must be Charged with War Crimes

July 29, 2013

The charges in the indictment that the defendants planned and waged aggressive war are charges of the utmost gravity. War is essentially an evil thing. Its consequences are not confined to the belligerent states alone, but affect the whole world.  To initiate a war of aggression, therefore, is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime, differing only from other crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.
- The International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg, October 1, 1946, from
 “The Crime Of Waging Aggressive War”

We have been gravely deceived about the terror atrocity of 9-11. The 9-11 bombings were not carried out by Muslims. 9-11 was a criminal deception that was used to instigate two criminal wars of aggression: Afghanistan and Iraq. Starting a war of aggression is considered to be the most egregious of all war crimes.

The terror attacks of 9-11 were an elaborate false-flag operation designed to kick-start the fraudulent “War on Terror” and drag the U.S. military into the Middle East with two costly and disastrous wars. 

George W. Bush and Barack Obama have prevented the crimes of 9-11 from being properly investigated and have waged wars of aggression based on a pack of lies about who was responsible for the terror attacks that changed America.

They have both committed war crimes that have taken the lives of thousands of Americans and an untold number of others. There are serious efforts to prosecute Bush and Obama in nations around the world, which is why George Bush is a wanted man and can no longer travel to many countries.

The following video explains why George W. Bush and Barack Obama must be prosecuted for their crimes.

Why Philosophy Matters

July 14, 2013

I mean that in actual fact there’s nothing worse than doing wrong.
- Socrates in Gorgias by Plato (380 B.C)


Plato (427-347 B.C)

The philosophical works of Plato should be taught to all students, especially at the high school and college levels, to help inform their sense of morality and guide them in the decisions they make later in life. The dialogues of Socrates, the essential works of Plato, are the oldest books of Western philosophy, written in the 4th Century before Christ, and have enduring and important messages for modern man.  Most importantly, Socrates explains why it is in a person's best interest to lead a virtuous life.

Students should study the philosophical works of Plato to understand the significance of such things as the Principle of the Sovereignty of Virtue to their own lives. This principle, a recurring theme in the dialogues of Socrates, is that the man who does injustice to others does more harm to himself than he does to those who suffer the injustice.

As Socrates says at the end of Gorgias:

Argument after argument can be proved wrong, but just one holds its ground – that we have to take greater care to avoid doing wrong than we do to avoid suffering wrong, and that above all else we must concentrate not on making people believe that we’re good, but on being good, in our private lives as well as in public.

There is nothing religious or complicated about this fundamental principle and Socrates makes his case using simple logic. For this reason, it is an argument that can be easily understood and appreciated by anyone.

As Plato frames the basic argument in Gorgias:

Polus: What do you mean, Socrates?
Socrates: I mean that in actual fact there’s nothing worse than doing wrong.
Polus: Really? Nothing worse? Isn’t it worse to suffer wrong?
Socrates: No, not at all.
Polus: So you’d rather have wrong done to you than do wrong?
Socrates: I’d rather avoid them both, but if I had to choose between doing wrong and having wrong done to me, I’d prefer the latter to the former.

This is much more than an academic exercise; this is a very real principle that affects everyone. I was reminded of it when I read the suicide letter of Daniel Somers, a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom. As Somers wrote in his letter:

The simple truth is this: During my first deployment, I was made to participate in things, the enormity of which is hard to describe. War crimes, crimes against humanity. Though I did not participate willingly, and made what I thought was my best effort to stop these events, there are some things that a person simply cannot come back from.

The tragic fact is that Daniel found himself involved in a war of aggression, which is itself an unjust and criminal enterprise. In this criminal war of aggression, Daniel, like many others, committed crimes that seared their souls. As Daniel says in his letter, the horror he had experienced had made it impossible for him to be at peace with himself and his family:

I really have been trying to hang on, for more than a decade now. Each day has been a testament to the extent to which I cared, suffering unspeakable horror as quietly as possible so that you could feel as though I was still here for you. In truth, I was nothing more than a prop, filling space so that my absence would not be noted. In truth, I have already been absent for a long, long time.

As the Vietnam War veteran and philosopher Camillo Bica wrote in 2008, “The order to fight an unjust war is an immoral and illegal order and an affront to conscience.”  Somers’ conscience clearly suffered so badly from the things he had done in Iraq that he could no longer live with himself and chose to commit suicide.

On June 10, 2013, Daniel wrote the following letter to his family before taking his life. Daniel was 30 years old. 

I am sorry that it has come to this.

The fact is, for as long as I can remember my motivation for getting up every day has been so that you would not have to bury me. As things have continued to get worse, it has become clear that this alone is not a sufficient reason to carry on. The fact is, I am not getting better, I am not going to get better, and I will most certainly deteriorate further as time goes on. From a logical standpoint, it is better to simply end things quickly and let any repercussions from that play out in the short term than to drag things out into the long term.

You will perhaps be sad for a time, but over time you will forget and begin to carry on. Far better that than to inflict my growing misery upon you for years and decades to come, dragging you down with me. It is because I love you that I cannot do this to you. You will come to see that it is a far better thing as one day after another passes during which you do not have to worry about me or even give me a second thought. You will find that your world is better without me in it.

I really have been trying to hang on, for more than a decade now. Each day has been a testament to the extent to which I cared, suffering unspeakable horror as quietly as possible so that you could feel as though I was still here for you. In truth, I was nothing more than a prop, filling space so that my absence would not be noted. In truth, I have already been absent for a long, long time.

My body has become nothing but a cage, a source of pain and constant problems. The illness I have has caused me pain that not even the strongest medicines could dull, and there is no cure. All day, every day a screaming agony in every nerve ending in my body. It is nothing short of torture. My mind is a wasteland, filled with visions of incredible horror, unceasing depression, and crippling anxiety, even with all of the medications the doctors dare give. Simple things that everyone else takes for granted are nearly impossible for me. I cannot laugh or cry. I can barely leave the house. I derive no pleasure from any activity. Everything simply comes down to passing time until I can sleep again. Now, to sleep forever seems to be the most merciful thing.

You must not blame yourself. The simple truth is this: During my first deployment, I was made to participate in things, the enormity of which is hard to describe. War crimes, crimes against humanity. Though I did not participate willingly, and made what I thought was my best effort to stop these events, there are some things that a person simply cannot come back from. I take some pride in that, actually, as to move on in life after being part of such a thing would be the mark of a sociopath in my mind. These things go far beyond what most are even aware of.

To force me to do these things and then participate in the ensuing cover-up is more than any government has the right to demand. Then, the same government has turned around and abandoned me. They offer no help, and actively block the pursuit of gaining outside help via their corrupt agents at the DEA. Any blame rests with them.

Beyond that, there are the host of physical illnesses that have struck me down again and again, for which they also offer no help. There might be some progress by now if they had not spent nearly twenty years denying the illness that I and so many others were exposed to. Further complicating matters is the repeated and severe brain injuries to which I was subjected, which they also seem to be expending no effort into understanding. What is known is that each of these should have been cause enough for immediate medical attention, which was not rendered.

Lastly, the DEA enters the picture again as they have now managed to create such a culture of fear in the medical community that doctors are too scared to even take the necessary steps to control the symptoms. All under the guise of a completely manufactured “overprescribing epidemic,” which stands in stark relief to all of the legitimate research, which shows the opposite to be true. Perhaps, with the right medication at the right doses, I could have bought a couple of decent years, but even that is too much to ask from a regime built upon the idea that suffering is noble and relief is just for the weak.

However, when the challenges facing a person are already so great that all but the weakest would give up, these extra factors are enough to push a person over the edge.

Is it any wonder then that the latest figures show 22 veterans killing themselves each day? That is more veterans than children killed at Sandy Hook, every single day. Where are the huge policy initiatives? Why isn’t the president standing with those families at the state of the union? Perhaps because we were not killed by a single lunatic, but rather by his own system of dehumanization, neglect, and indifference.

It leaves us to where all we have to look forward to is constant pain, misery, poverty, and dishonor. I assure you that, when the numbers do finally drop, it will merely be because those who were pushed the farthest are all already dead.

And for what? Bush’s religious lunacy? Cheney’s ever growing fortune and that of his corporate friends? Is this what we destroy lives for?

Since then, I have tried everything to fill the void. I tried to move into a position of greater power and influence to try and right some of the wrongs. I deployed again, where I put a huge emphasis on saving lives. The fact of the matter, though, is that any new lives saved do not replace those who were murdered. It is an exercise in futility.

Then, I pursued replacing destruction with creation. For a time this provided a distraction, but it could not last. The fact is that any kind of ordinary life is an insult to those who died at my hand. How can I possibly go around like everyone else while the widows and orphans I created continue to struggle? If they could see me sitting here in suburbia, in my comfortable home working on some music project they would be outraged, and rightfully so.

I thought perhaps I could make some headway with this film project, maybe even directly appealing to those I had wronged and exposing a greater truth, but that is also now being taken away from me. I fear that, just as with everything else that requires the involvement of people who cannot understand by virtue of never having been there, it is going to fall apart as careers get in the way.

The last thought that has occurred to me is one of some kind of final mission. It is true that I have found that I am capable of finding some kind of reprieve by doing things that are worthwhile on the scale of life and death. While it is a nice thought to consider doing some good with my skills, experience, and killer instinct, the truth is that it isn’t realistic. First, there are the logistics of financing and equipping my own operation, then there is the near certainty of a grisly death, international incidents, and being branded a terrorist in the media that would follow. What is really stopping me, though, is that I simply am too sick to be effective in the field anymore. That, too, has been taken from me.

Thus, I am left with basically nothing. Too trapped in a war to be at peace, too damaged to be at war. Abandoned by those who would take the easy route, and a liability to those who stick it out—and thus deserve better. So you see, not only am I better off dead, but the world is better without me in it.

This is what brought me to my actual final mission. Not suicide, but a mercy killing. I know how to kill, and I know how to do it so that there is no pain whatsoever. It was quick, and I did not suffer. And above all, now I am free. I feel no more pain. I have no more nightmares or flashbacks or hallucinations. I am no longer constantly depressed or afraid or worried.

I am free.

I ask that you be happy for me for that. It is perhaps the best break I could have hoped for. Please accept this and be glad for me.

Daniel Somers

Obama Acts on French Fibs about Sarin in Syria

Updated June 14, 2013

NB! - added Russian and Syrian statements on Obama decision to arm rebels (many of whom are not even Syrian) based on "fabricated" evidence

The data on Assad’s use of chemical weapons is fabricated just like the lies about weapons of [Saddam] Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction. Obama is going down the path of George Bush.
- Alexei Pushkov, Chairman of Russian parliament’s international relations committee, RIA Novosti, June 14, 2013

The White House...relied on fabricated information in order to hold the Syrian government responsible for using these weapons, despite a series of statements that confirmed that terrorist groups in Syria have chemical weapons… The United States, in resorting to a shameful use of pretexts in order to allow President Obama's decision to arm the Syrian opposition, shows that it has flagrant double standards in the way it deals with terrorism.
- Syrian foreign ministry, June 14, 2013

International law doesn't allow, doesn't permit, the supplies of arms to non-governmental actors. It's a violation of international law.
- Sergei Lavrov, Russian Foreign Minister, June 14, 2013


A photograph distributed by Syria's national news agency on May 20, 2013, shows an Israeli military vehicle that was being used by rebel fighters in Qusair. Pro-Israel politicians like Sen. John McCain back the rebels who receive weapons and military support from Israel. Is the rebellion in Syria simply a Zionist war by proxy?


Sen. John McCain visiting rebels in Syria, many of whom are not even from Syria. McCain dismissed the numerous war crimes committed by the rebel fighters as, "Isolated incidents of people who have just gotten … battle-hardened and angry."

Israel, whether intentionally or not, has made itself a perceived ally of the Syrian rebels – capable of replacing international shoulder-shrugging and military inaction with a policy of intervention.
-  “Assad's dilemma: Blame Israeli strike on rebels or retaliate and risk open war,” by Zvi Bar'el, Haaretz (Israel), May 5, 2013

Based on lies and fabrications the United States and its NATO allies went to war in Afghanistan and Iraq. By using lies about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, which did not even exist, the war in Iraq was sold to the American people. These unjustified wars have plundered the U.S. economy with massive amounts of defense spending in which defense contractors earn immense profits, year after year, at the expense of the American taxpayer.

The top contractors for the U.S. government are all defense related companies. The federal funds, borrowed and paid to the top 5 defense contractors alone (Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, General Dynamics, and Raytheon) currently amount to nearly $400 per year for every man, woman, and child in the United States. Lockheed Martin is the No. 1 contractor getting nearly $40 billion a year from the government. In 2009, the money paid to Lockheed Martin amounted to $38.512 billion, approximately $126 per person from the U.S. population of about 305 million.

War is very dirty business through which huge amounts of money are stolen from the state. Apart from interest on the debt, the U.S. Defense Department is the undisputed king of the hill consuming the lion's share of the U.S. budget (about $373 billion in 2011), a budgetary distortion that does not leave much to provide for the needs of the American people.

The same propaganda tactics that were used to start the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq are now being used to prepare public opinion for more wars. The same lies about banned weapons are being recycled to set the stage for military intervention in Syria and Iran. It is, therefore, important to understand who is pushing for Western intervention in the war in Syria, and why.

As Syrian forces and their allies regain territory from the rebels, the supporters of the rebels (some of whom have engaged in acts of cannibalism) are increasing their demands for Western states or NATO to intervene militarily to overthrow the Syrian government. This call is being led by France and Britain, states in which the ZionistRothschild family has the greatest influence. In France, Laurent Fabius, the Jewish foreign minister who has close ties to Israel, is pushing for military intervention claiming that the Syrian government has used chemical weapons. The opinion of non-biased experts, however, is that it is the rebels who have used these banned weapons - not the Syrian government.

In early May, Carla del Ponte said that the independent UN investigation into the use of chemical weapons in Syria indicated that they had been used by the rebels - not government forces.

"Our investigators have been in neighboring countries interviewing victims, doctors and field hospitals and, according to their report of last week which I have seen, there are strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof of the use of sarin gas, from the way the victims were treated... This was use on the part of the opposition, the rebels, not by the government authorities." 

The statements by del Ponte, a former Swiss attorney-general and prosecutor with the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, that chemical weapons had been used by the rebels were not welcomed by those who support the rebels in Syria, especially the governments of France and Britain.

The very same French government, which wages war in Mali against Islamist militias, is now pushing for intervention in Syria to support Islamist rebels. Evidently, Islamist rebels are being used to achieve strategic goals that have nothing to do with Islam.

One month after del Ponte's revelation, on June 4, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius turned the allegations around saying there was no doubt the Syrian government had used nerve agent sarin against the rebels. "There is no doubt that it's the regime and its accomplices" that are responsible for use of the gas, Fabius said on France2 television. "All options are on the table," he said. "That means either we decide not to react or we decide to react including by armed actions targetting the place where the gas is stored."

Lapid is the former TV host who discussed the 9-11 attacks on Israeli television with three of the five Israelis who were arrested on 9-11. One of the terror suspects told Lapid, "Our mission was to document the event." Lapid didn't ask who gave them the mission. It was understood.

Laurent Fabius and his wife Françoise Castro are both Jewish. When Fabius was prime minister, Jewish militants worked with the French government.

It is certainly not the national interest of France that Laurent Fabius is promoting in Mali and Syria. He is clearly working as an agent of the Rothchilds and the Zionist state of Israel when he lies about who is responsible for war crimes in Syria. Fabius has a history of working with Jewish extremists, as Robert Faurisson noted in 1995:

In 1986, when Laurent Fabius was Prime Minister of France, his wife, Mme. Françoise Castro, revealed that the Jewish militants and the Interior Minister were working hand in hand. She stated: "An extraordinary novelty in political behavior: the Left has allowed Jewish militants to establish themselves in some quarters of Paris and also in Toulouse, Marseille, and Strasbourg [and to have] regular contacts with the Interior Minister." (Le Monde, March 7, 1986, p. 8). Castro and Fabius are both Jewish.

Did the FBI Murder Ibragim Todashev?

May 30, 2013


Ibragim Todashev was shot during a late-night interrogation session by the FBI at his home in Orlando. Why was the FBI conducting an interrogation at Todashev's home in the middle of the night? Why was he shot in the back of the head? Was he executed?

Ibragim was indeed unarmed when he was shot seven times - what appears to be once in the back of the head.
- Hassan Shibly, Council on American-Islamic Relations, May 29, 2013

Like so many of the false claims made by the FBI and law enforcement agencies about the Tsarnaev brothers and the Boston Marathon bombing, we now learn that Ibragim Todashev was not armed when he was shot - 7 times.

One week after he was killed, ABC News reported that Ibragim Todashev was not armed when he was shot to death in his Orlando apartment. The FBI, along with two members of the Massachusetts State Police, had been interviewing Todashev for about 5 hours before he was shot after midnight on May 22, 2013.  A friend (or friends) of Todashev had been present during most of the interrogation but was sent away by the FBI shortly before the shooting. If the FBI really suspected Todashev of serious crimes, like murder, why was he not being interrogated at a police station or office of the FBI?  Why was this interrogation being done in the middle of the night in an apartment complex?

According to Hassan Shibly of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the un-armed Todashev had been shot 7 times, once apparently in the back of the head. CAIR is requesting a civil rights investigation into the shooting.

A CBS/AP article of May 30, entitled “Ibragim Todashev's father:  FBI killed my son ‘execution-style’" reported that photographs of Todashev’s body indicated he had been shot in the back of the head: 

At a news conference in Moscow, Abdul-Baki Todashev showed journalists 16 photographs that he said were of his son, Ibragim, in a Florida morgue. He said his son had six gunshot wounds to his torso and one to the back of his head and the pictures were taken by his son's friend, Khusen Taramov… "I'd only seen and heard things like that in the movies — they shoot somebody and then a shot in the head to make sure," Todashev said. "These just aren't FBI agents, they're bandits," he added.

It may be that Todashev was shot in the back of the head first and that the shots to his heart and torso followed. What is very clear is that Todashev was murdered. With several armed police officers and FBI agents present in the building there is no logical explanation why lethal force was applied first - rather than non-lethal methods - if in fact there was a need to subdue Todashev.

The use of force continuum requires that if a suspect poses a threat the police should first use non-lethal methods before resorting to lethal force. Shibly's claim that Todashev was shot in the back of the head, if true, suggests that he was executed - murdered in cold blood.

The Washington Post reported that the FBI agent who shot Todashev may have been alone with Todashev when he was killed. If so, this may indicate that the murder was premeditated and the others were asked to leave the room so that they could not be called as witnesses:

An official said that according to one account of the shooting, the other law enforcement officials had just stepped out of the room, leaving the FBI agent alone with Todashev, when the confrontation occurred.

The shooting followed hours of questioning by the law enforcement officials that had begun the night before.

Todashev’s father said after the shooting that he didn’t believe the FBI’s account of why they killed his son.

“My son could never commit a crime, I know my son too well,” Abdul-Baki Todashev, who lives in Chechnya, told the Daily Beast Web site. “He worked helping disabled people in America and did sports, coached other sportsmen. The FBI made up their accusations.”

What is also quite obvious is that the FBI lied to the media about Todashev being armed. This is similar to the false claims that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev had been armed when he was found in the boat. The source of these lies is the same FBI who has been caught telling lie after lie about the whole murky saga that began with the Boston bombings. The news reports from May 22 all said that Todashev had been armed with a knife and had attacked an FBI agent, cutting his head. The fact that this was not the case at all indicates that the FBI agents had concocted a false story to cover up the truth about what had led to the killing of Todashev. Is there any part of the FBI story that is true? Is the FBI a completely rogue agency?

The FBI is an agency of the Department of Justice. If the FBI is as rogue as it appears to be, the real rot lies at the center of the Department of Justice, which has become what can only be called the "Department of Injustice." It should be remembered that the FBI is the agency that failed to properly investigate 9-11, then under the guidance of Michael Chertoff.

On the Need to Resist War Propaganda

Memorial Day, 2013

If any question why we died, 
tell them, because our fathers lied.


Rudyard Kipling, after losing his 18-year-old son in the Battle of Loos (France), September 1915. Kipling's son John had wanted to join the Royal Navy, but was turned down due to poor eyesight. His father had been lifelong friends with Lord Roberts, commander-in-chief of the British Army. At Rudyard's request, John was accepted into the Irish Guards and sent to Loos two days into the battle. He was last seen stumbling through the mud blindly, screaming in agony after an exploding shell ripped his face apart.

Memorial Day is the holiday in the United States when Americans remember the men and women who died while serving in the military.  For Americans who did not lose a loved one in the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, or Vietnam, the three-day holiday means a day off and the beginning of summer. For those who lost someone in these wars, however, Memorial Day is the day the nation commemorates their loss.

But the nation cannot feel the pain and suffering that the bereaved families feel every day.  While government officials try to lessen the pain of these suffering families by honoring the dead as heroes who died fighting for our freedom and security, the painful truth is that the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Vietnam were not fought to defend the nation or any of our freedoms.


The pain of losing a loved one in war affects a family for generations.

There are about 6,713 families in the United States who lost a loved one serving in the military during the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan. (In reality, this number is much larger because many died after returning home due to exposure to depleted uranium and other battlefield toxins.) Left behind are the children, spouses, siblings, and parents of those who died. These families struggle every day to make sense of their loss.  Although the survivors may want to believe that their loved one died fighting for America, freedom, and democracy, they cannot avoid the growing awareness that these wars were illegal wars of aggression waged on a pack of lies.

I was truly astounded to read that 85 percent of the U.S. military personnel in Iraq were so misinformed that they actually believed that U.S. forces were in Iraq because of its involvement in the terror attacks of 9-11.  The fact is, of course, that Iraq had nothing to do with 9-11, but that information had obviously not reached most of the U.S. soldiers fighting and dying in Iraq. Likewise, the war in Afghanistan is based on the deception of 9-11 and the pack of lies about who was behind the terror attacks.

The lies behind the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq were promoted mainly by the big television networks of Fox News, CNN, ABC, CBS, and NBC.  There were also the war propagandists working at the New York Times and other newspapers who spread lies about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction and other threats that did not exist. Based on the lies spread by the media, the American people were deceived about why the nation went to war. To prevent more Americans from being killed in unnecessary wars we should be resolved not to let our nation be deceived into another disastrous war.

This means actively resisting the anti-Iran propaganda that is being spread by the media.  On Friday, May 24, I was surprised to see an article on Salon.com entitled “Iran hackers aiming at U.S. energy firms.”  The posting was written by Natasha Lennard, assistant news editor at Salon.com, and based on an article from the same day in Rupert Murdoch’sWall Street Journal entitled “Iran hacks energy firms, U.S. says.”

The Wall Street Journal article begins:

WASHINGTON - Iranian-backed hackers have escalated a campaign of cyberassaults against U.S. corporations by launching infiltration and surveillance missions against the computer networks running energy companies, according to current and former U.S. officials.

In the latest operations, the Iranian hackers were able to gain access to control-system software that could allow them to manipulate oil or gas pipelines. They proceeded “far enough to worry people,” one former official said.

The developments show that while Chinese hackers pose widespread intellectual-property-theft and espionage concerns, the Iranian assaults have emerged as far more worrisome because of their apparent hostile intent and potential for damage or sabotage.

While there is no evidence to support the allegations found in the Wall Street Journal article, variations of this article claiming that Iranian hackers are a threat to U.S. infrastructure have now been spread around the world. 

It looks to me like the anti-Iran propaganda articles are designed to set the stage for a false-flag attack on U.S. infrastructure. Here it needs to be noted that it is Israeli hackers, such as Amit and Naftali (Elad) Yoran, who have made careers out of hacking into U.S. energy companies. The next terror attack in the United States may very well be aimed at our energy infrastructure, but it is not the Iranians who are planning it. We need to be aware of who is promoting the war propaganda in order to expose it and nip such evil plots in the bud.


Amit Yoran, a high-level "hacker" tied to Israeli military intelligence, designed computer security for the Pentagon, Air Force, and U.S. government. Yoran's company has hacked into the computer networks of dozens of energy companies. Such hacking could be done and made to look like it is coming from Iran to instigate a war.

Because the anti-Iran propaganda may be preparation for a real attack to be used to start another war, I looked into who was promoting the propaganda piece in the Murdoch-owned Wall Street Journal.  Rupert Murdoch of News Corp. and Fox News is the Zionist media mogul who has actively promoted the “War on Terror” and the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan.


THE MAN BEHIND THE SCREEN - Rupert Murdoch during the Leveson Inquiry. Murdoch, who owns News Corp., Fox News, and the Wall Street Journal, has pushed the Zionist war agenda through the media outlets he controls.

I began by looking up Natasha Lennard of Salon.com.  She is a young woman from Britain who was involved with the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement and the New York Times.  When it was discovered that she was an active participant in the OWS movement she left the New York Times and discussed her involvement on "Democracy Now" with Amy Goodman:


"I'm not an objective journalist." - Natasha Lennard of Salon.com and Occupy Wall Street. Natasha's step-father is a London barrister who defends Rupert Murdoch. Her brother manages an investment fund for Ruffer LLC. She spreads anti-Iran war propaganda on a major news website. What's the connection?

As I wrote in Salon this week, I’m not an objective journalist.  I, like many hundreds, thousands, millions of people across the country, am quite appalled by the current state of inequality that the system we’re living under has created and would only want to speak in that capacity henceforth.
- Natasha Lennard, Democracy Now, November 17, 2011
http://www.democracynow.org/2011/11/17/ex_new_york_times_freelancer_natasha

But why would a person involved in the Occupy Wall Street movement be spreading Rupert Murdoch’s vile war propaganda that is clearly designed to make Iran look like a threat to the United States?  What I found suggests that Natasha Lennard is not being honest when she says she is "appalled by the current state of inequality."

Her step-father is a well-known and highly-paid orthodox Jewish lawyer in the City of London named Jonathan Michael Caplan (QC).  Jonathan Caplan recently represented Murdoch’s News Group Newspapers Limited in a criminal case.  Caplan was also a core participant in the Leveson Inquiry that examined some of the crimes committed by journalists working for Rupert Murdoch's propaganda empire. One of those criminal journalists was none other than Piers Morgan, who was forced to relocate to the United States after being disgraced in Britain. Americans don't know that he has a criminal background.

Natasha Lennard confirmed by email that she is the daughter of Selena A. Caplan (born Selena Anne Peskin), wife of Jonathan Michael Caplan QC.  Her real father is Richard Douglas Lennard, the son of Gerald Goldberg, who passed away in Florida in 2005.  Natasha’s brother is Alexander Samuel Lennard, an investment fund manager for Ruffer LLC. Jonathan Caplan is also a patron of orthodox Jewish organizations and "The Wiener Library" ("for the study of the Holocaust and Genocide").

Natasha wrote:

Those are indeed my family members. I will not reserve my disgust at your having delved into my family connections… Your reasons for researching my family (including estranged members) is disturbing and in need of explanation.

I responded:

As I said in my email I am very concerned about who is spreading Murdoch's anti-Iran propaganda in the United States.  You probably know that the media, especially Rupert Murdoch, played a key role in getting the U.S. into the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.  These wars were based on lies and deception, very much like the piece you wrote about Iran hacking into U.S. infrastructure.

Your step-father Jonathan Michael Caplan recently worked as a lawyer for Mr. Murdoch defending News Group Newspapers Ltd. and was a core participant in the Leveson Inquiry in which Murdoch's criminal activities were examined...

Maybe you should stop working for the warmongers and those who lie to get us into war.

The FBI's Fake Terror Plots - Judge Napolitano

May 5, 2013

Is terrorism a real and genuine threat to Americans or is the whole thing just a giant hoax? Were the terror attacks of 9-11 and the foiled terror plots that followed all contrived to scare the public and change the relationship between the people and the government? Is the threat of terrorism and the "War on Terror" just a big con job?

It should be noted that the first bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993 was set up by the FBI. In setting up the "terrorists" the FBI paid $1 million to Emad Salem, a former Egyptian army officer who served as a FBI informant while entrapping the suspects who were subsequently charged with the crime.

Eight years later, when the World Trade Center was bombed and destroyed on 9-11, the FBI working under Asst. Attorney General Michael Chertoff oversaw the "non-investigation" of the crime. The FBI facilitated the cover-up of the truth by allowing the crucial evidence from the World Trade Center to be destroyed before it could be examined. To understand how the 9-11 cover-up was carried out it is essential to understand that the crime that took the lives of nearly 3,000 people was not properly investigated as a crime by the federal agency obliged to do so.

With this in mind, listen to what Judge Andrew Napolitano says about the FBI's history of fake terror plots in the decade since 9-11: 

Can the federal government take credit for saving us from a plot of its own creation?

The FBI has foiled about 17 plots to kill Americans during the past ten years… the 17 that were interrupted by the feds – were created by the feds… they all have a common and reprehensible thread:  they were planned, plotted, controlled, and carried out by the federal government itself.
- Judge Andrew P. Napolitano, "Government-Generated Plots," October 14, 2011

Eyewitness Saw Police SUV Run Over Tamarlan Tsarnaev

April 29, 2013


A police SUV is towed away from the scene where Tamarlan Tsarnaev was run over. According to Ed Deveau, the Watertown police chief, one of his sergeants used this vehicle as a "battering ram" and drove right into the melee and then jumped out of the SUV and kept it in gear as it rolled on toward the suspects. 


The report added that the Watertown police SUV had its rear window shot out and had "a little wound" in front, which would be the case if it was used as a battering ram to run over the 26-year-old man. So, is this police SUV the real vehicle that ran Tamarlan over? Is the police story meant to hide the fact that someone used the vehicle to kill Tamarlan? Is the police story all a big lie?

From the beginning, I found the official explanation that Dzhokhar ran over his own brother and was able to flee from the police hard to believe. It simply did not make sense that the 19-year-old Dzhokhar could just drive away from hordes of police with their weapons drawn and high-powered cop cruisers at hand. Furthermore, there were no reports of a police chase using vehicles.


The official story that Dzhokhar had run his brother over and then just driven away from the scene of a massive police shoot-out simply does not make sense. There is no way he could get away so easily from hordes of police that had their weapons drawn and cars ready. Like the police lies that the Tsarnaevs had robbed a 7-11 or that Dzhokhar had been armed while hiding in the boat, the whole shoot-out story now appears to have been a fabrication.

The following eyewitness testimony to a Boston radio show on Friday, April 19, makes much more sense:

On Friday, April 19, an eyewitness named Linda called in to WEEI (93.7 FM) in Boston saying that she saw a police SUV run over Tamarlan Tsarnaev. Linda said she witnessed the late-night “shootout” on Dexter Street in Watertown.  She described seeing “the first suspect,” Tamerlan Tsarnaev, run over by a police SUV and then mortally wounded by multiple police gun shots. 

When asked to confirm if it was a police SUV that ran over the suspect, Linda replies, “correct.”

The 7-minute radio clip with Linda is here:

The Boston Bombings - "Terror is Theatre"

Updated April 26, 2013
- Officials now say Dzhokhar was un-armed when captured in boat.
- Question No. 1 - Are the Tsarnaev boys the Boston bombers?
- FBI says both bombs were in black backpacks; Dzhokhar's was white or silver.
- Dzhokhar Tsarnaev treated by Israeli doctors - transferred to federal prison
- Was brother Tamarlan taken into police custody on April 19?  
- Aunt swears man taken alive and naked is her nephew Tamarlan
 

FBI/POLICE LIES UNRAVEL FURTHER

Officials now say that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was un-armed when the FBI and the army of police opened fire on the small boat in which he was apparently hiding. The police had originally reported that he had fired at them from under the tarp. Earlier, they had said that the Tsarnaev brothers had robbed a 7-11 store. It was even speculated that he had shot himself in the neck. All of these reports turned out to be false.

The FBI, which was in charge, must have known upon arresting Dzhokhar that he did not have a weapon. So, where did the report come from that he did? Who is writing the official lies that have been spread about the Tsarnaev brothers? Is this incompetence or is it part of the master plan to convict the Tsarnaevs in the court of public opinion without presenting any evidence? What other parts of the Boston story are lies? 

If Dzhokhar was un-armed in the boat it raises the question, was he even involved in the shoot-out? Did he really run over his own brother and escape from a whole horde of police with weapons drawn? If he was in the shoot-out, what happened to his weapon? How did the police let him get away so easily? Was someone elseplaying the role of Dzhokhar and allowed to get away?


AS DZHOKHAR SAYS - "They set me up." The FBI has been setting up and framing Muslims in fake terrorism plots for decades. So who is the Department of Justice and the FBI really serving?

Terror is theatre... Theatre's a con trick. Do you know what that means? Con trick? You've been deceived.
- John Le Carré, The Little Drummer Girl1983

They made our boys enemies of the American nation. They made them victims of the conspiracy. They needed somebody to blame for something they committed themselves so they got them, so rejoice people, rejoice...


They will make sure they will not let this boy live because they do not want this boy to have a chance, have a voice to say that ‘People of America, I did not do this.’
- Maret Tsarnaeva, aunt of the Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Sun News(Canada), April 21, 2013


Was Tamarlan Tsarnaev taken into police custody alive and well on April 19? His aunt told a Canadian reporter she is 100 percent certain that the man seen here is her nephew, the 26-year-old Chechen boxer Tamarlan. This would mean that the police story is a complete fabrication and that Tamarlan died in a staged operation.

QUESTION No. 1 - ARE THE TSARNAEV BOYS THE BOMBERS?

Among items partially recovered are pieces of black nylon—which could be from a backpack—and what appear to be fragments of BBs and nails possibly contained in a pressure cooker device… In addition, this morning, it was determined that both of the explosives were placed in a dark-colored nylon bag or backpack. The bag would have been heavy because of the components believed to be in it.
- Richard DesLauriers, the FBI special agent in charge of the investigation, April 16, 2013
Source: “Remarks of Special Agent in Charge Richard DesLauriers at Press Conference on Bombing Investigation”

Among all the claims and allegations made by the FBI and the media about Tamarlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev the only one that really matters is whether they carried out the bombings at the Boston Marathon.  If they did, they must have brought the bombs, which would have weighed at least 20 pounds (10 kilos) each, in the backpacks they were seen carrying.  

If the devices were pressure cooker bombs packed with ball bearings, BB's, and nails, as alleged, these would have been very heavy and large objects that would have weighed as much as 5 bags of sugar, for example. Such a heavy and dense object would be noticeable as it would pull hard on the straps of the backpack and stretch it out of shape. These effects can not be seen on the backpacks being carried by the Tsarnaev brothers, strongly suggesting that they did not carry the bombs as alleged. 

IS WHITE THE SAME AS BLACK?

Furthermore, the FBI says that both bombs were in black bags, but Dzhokhar's bag is clearly white or silver/grey. It is definitely not black. So what is the evidence linking him to either bomb?


Dzhokhar carried his white or silver colored bag on one shoulder. If his bag contained a heavy shrapnel bomb it would have pulled very hard with the full weight on one strap. The strap on his bag, however, does not appear to be stretched at all nor is his bag distended or sagging. The FBI says both bombs were in dark or black bags. Dzhokhar's bag is certainly not black. So why is he even a suspect?


Tamarlan's backpack also seems to be lightly packed. If he were carrying a 20 lb. pressure cooker packed with metal shrapnel his pack would be visibly sagging and streched out of shape.


This backpack, for example, is clearly carrying a heavy object that is pulling hard on the straps and stretching the pack out of shape. I would consider this man to be a 'person of interest' in the Boston investigation. Who is he?


The man in the white hat is also carrying a bag that appears to have a heavy object pulling at the lower part of the bag. The straps are pulling hard on the man's shoulders. The man in the blue outfit is a Moroccan runner who has come forward to clear his name but the man in the white cap has not been identified. It should be noted that the man in the white cap is seen later apparently without his pack. This would make him a definite 'person of interest' in this investigation. What happened to his backpack? Who is he?

THE ISRAELI DOCTORS AT BETH ISRAEL

In what may be the final act of the Boston Marathon terror spectacle, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the 19-year-old alleged to have carried out the bombing, "clings to life" in Beth Israel (House of Israel) Medical Center, where he is being treated by two Israeli doctors. This raises the question, who decided to take him there? Is the fact that the alleged terrorist is being held and cared for in an Israeli-run hospital just a coincidence or is it part of the master plan? If Tsarnaev dies in Beth Israel the terror case will be closed with no one left to talk.

That the Tsarnaev brothers were taken to a hospital being run by Israelis is very similar to the murders of Anna Lindh and Princess Di in which the ambulance personnel made sure these women did not survive their wounds. Will Dzhokhar Tsarnaev die in the final scene under the care of his Israeli doctors?


DR. TABB - The Israeli doctor who runs the medical center where the bombing suspect is being treated. Why has he not explained the mysterious injury to Tsarnaev's neck?  Was it self-inflicted or was it not? What kind of wound is it? Is it a bullet wound or something else?

Dr. Kevin (Ilan) Tabb, president and CEO of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center told Israeli media that Tsarnaev is in stable condition but that because of wounds to his throat, he may never be able to speak again. "We have a few Israeli doctors in the emergency room, and the director of the ER is also Israeli,” Tabb said.


DR. TALMOR - The Israeli doctor who runs the emergency room at Beth Israel oversees the care given to the suspect. 

Daniel Talmor, the Israeli physician who heads the ER told Israel Army Radio that Tsarnaev has "serious injuries, but I believe he will live." Talmor added that the suspect is in isolation with "very, very tight security."

WHAT KIND OF SECURITY? 


"VIOLENCE DOES SOLVE PROBLEMS" - The motto of the military/mercenary firm, The Craft, which had numerous agents carrying black backpacks near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. What were these mercenaries doing at the marathon? Were they part of a terror bombing drill that someone made real?

"THE RAID IS ISSUED TO OCCUR ON FRIDAY" 
(April 19, 2013 - 20th Anniversary of Massacre of Branch Davidians in Waco)


THE RAID ON FRIDAY - Cops in Boston on the hunt for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, one of the suspects wanted by the FBI in relation to the Boston Marathon bombings.


Tsarnaev is a 19-year-old medical student from the former Soviet Union who has lived in America for about a decade. Is he really the bomber? What motive could he possibly have?


THE PROMISING HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATE - Why would a young medical student with great promise want to do anything like what he is alleged to have done? Will Dzhokar Tsarnaev even live to tell his side of the story, or will he be killed in the process - and scapegoated as one of the bombers?


TAMARLAN THE BOXER wanted to box for Team USA to obtain an American passport. Does that sound like a person who would bomb the Boston Marathon?

In the afternoon of April 18, 2013, the FBI released a photo of its two suspects in the terror bombing of the Boston Marathon. It should be noted that the FBI's suspects are dressed in the exact same way asother suspicious characters seen toting heavy black backpacks near the finish line. This suggests that this operation may have involved agents in the crowd dressed in the same manner as the FBI's suspects.  It should be noted that it is the agents, not the suspects, who appear to have been carrying the really heavy backpacks containing the bombs.


The two Tsarnaev brothers, who the FBI says are the terror suspects. Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, (in white hat) is reportedly still at large, while Tamerlan is dead. The Tsarnaev brothers are of Chechen origin.


The Tsarnaev brothers are the FBI's chief suspects. One is already dead.


The backpacks being carried by the Tsarnaev brothers at the Boston Marathon certainly do not appear to be very heavy at all. The man said to be Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (in white hat) is carrying the bag easily on one shoulder. This suggests that his bag probably does not contain a pressure cooker bomb loaded with heavy metal shrapnel. Nor does his brother's bag appear to be very heavy. So, who had thereally heavy bags with the real bombs?


Now, who are these suspicious fellows dressed in miltary garb at ground zero near the finish line? They are members of Craft International LLC, a military company whose symbol is the skull, which can be seen on the hat. The Craft member in the dark cap seems to be ready to leave his bag on the ground as soon as he gets the word over his wire. How conspicuous do they want to be wearing hats with skulls on the front? Are they truly unaware that they are being caught on camera?


ROUND THEM UP - Are these Craft agents the real terrorists? Are they part of a terror exercise that "went live" - was their drill hijacked or are they the real culprits? What was this military company doing at the finish line of the Boston Marathon? We need an explanation. We need the truth.


"THIS WAS A STAGED EVENT" - "THE RAID IS ISSUED TO OCCUR ON FRIDAY" - This interesting comment accompanied the photos of suspicious individuals carrying heavy black backpacks near the finish line.

The suspect being sought by the FBI fits the age description ("a male late teens to early 20s") found in this comment. The comment and photos had been seen by nearly 3 million viewers when the FBI presented the photos of its suspects. If the comment is correct, as it seems to be, it would suggest that the architects will have to change their plans because of the leaked information.

Whose backpack matches the one that carried the bomb?


Where did the man carrying the heavy black backpack leave his bag?

The terror bombings at the finish line of the Boston Marathon were a heinous spectacle of pure terror, which is exactly what they were meant to be. This spectacle of terror is so evil and senseless that I cannot understand how any American would do such a thing to innocent people watching a race.

There is, of course, no rational reason why anyone would commit such an atrocity - except one: to blame the heinous crime on a targeted group. This is why I added the essential quote from John Le Carré's book about Israeli false-flag terrorism to the title: 

Terror is theatre... Theatre's a con trick. Do you know what that means? Con trick? You've been deceived.

I would advise keeping this thought firmly in mind as the Boston bombing story develops. A terror bombing of this sort, at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, is done solely to achieve maximum effect on public opinion. We are all part of the target audience as we wait to see how this tragedy will unfold - and what it will mean for us.

One thing to remember is that this terror attack in Boston is most likely a convoluted plot, with layers of deception, like a Russian Matryoshka doll, where inside each doll lies another concealed doll. If the suspicious characters in the photos above are in fact the real culprits, they would have to be pretty stupid to make themselves so obvious in one of the most photographed places in America on April 15. How could a terrorist expect to walk around with a heavy bomb in a backpack at the finish line of the Boston Marathon and not be caught on camera? Yet somebody must have placed the bombs and with all of the surveillance cameras in the area that person must have expected that they would be caught on film.

When looking at the images of the suspicious characters carrying backpacks near the finish line in Boston, it looks to me to be an operation very similar to the murder of Anna Lindh in which there were several agents wearing identical clothes going up and down the stairs of the NK store in Stockholm. All of the agents were decoys except for the one who stabbed Anna Lindh to death, who was dressed just like the Serbian man they arrested. The same tactic may have been used at the Boston Marathon.

There were only two bombs that exploded, but there are several suspects. The question is who really placed the bombs? It would seem that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev did not have a heavy enough backpack to carry a bomb, while another fellow in a white cap, who is later seen apparently without his bag, carried a very heavy backpack. The body language of his partner in blue, with his hand near his mouth, suggests that he is very nervous. Are these two part of the terror team that made the bombing happen?

WHICH MAN IN THE WHITE CAP?

Jeff Bauman, the victim who lost his legs, reportedly helped identify the bomber.  As reported in The Telegraph (UK):

Mr Bauman was waiting to see his girlfriend finish the race when a man in a white cap and sweatshirt dropped a backpack at his feet. The 27-year-old lost both his legs in the explosion. Despite being heavily drugged, Mr Bauman got word to the authorities that he had seen one of the bombers. He told FBI investigators that he looked in the eyes of Tamerlan Tsarnaev as he planted the bomb. He went on to identify him in a photograph.

Bauman's testimony actually indicates that it was not Tamarlan Tsarnaev he saw place the bomb at his feet. Tamarlan is wearing a dark cap and a substantial jacket - not a sweatshirt.  Dzhokar Tsarnaev is wearing a white cap, but he is not wearing a sweatshirt nor is he carrying anything heavy enough to be a bomb.  Furthermore, the reports say that Bauman identified Tamarlan as the one who placed the bag. None of this fits.

The person Bauman saw place the bomb was wearing a white hat and a sweatshirt and evidently looked Middle Eastern - just like the suspect in the photo below.  The person in the photo below fits all the characteristics of Bauman's description. The fact that this person was then photographed without his backpack suggests that he is the real bomber - not Tamarlan Tsarnaev. This is a person of interest who absolutely should be questioned.


Two of the suspects seen near the bombings. Note that the fellow with the heavy backpack is wearing a white cap and similar clothes as the FBI suspect. This suspicious fellow seems to have lost his backpack in another photo. As the diagram shows, this backpack may very well have held a pressure cooker bomb.


In this photo it appears that the suspect in the white cap no longer has his backpack and seems to paying attention to something else. Is he one of the real bombers while the FBI suspect is the scapegoat who will be blamed - and probably killed before he has a chance to explain anything?

AMERICA IS GREAT BECAUSE SHE IS GOOD

The thought that was going through my head the day before the bombing was this sentence, which is often used and mis-attributed to Alexis de Tocqueville, author of Democracy in America:

America is great because she is good. If America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.

The logic of this statement, whoever said it, is pretty simple: America is, or was, strong and great because of her goodness. That makes complete sense and is easily seen in the relationship between prosperity and lack of corruption in government. The nations that are most prosperous and have the highest quality of life are those that have the lowest levels of corruption. 

Socrates and the ancient Greek philosophers said and wrote a great deal about this correlation. When a city or state is governed by good and just men the people and state will prosper. The laws will be just and will be upheld while the wealth and property of the common citizen will be protected.

When the government is corrupt, however, the wealth of the state and that of every citizen is in danger of being stolen. When criminals take power the law is corrupted and the wealth of the state and people is plundered. This is, unfortunately, the true state of the union in the United States today.

The Obama administration tells us that it will go to the end of the Earth to find the culprits of the Boston bombings while it has accepted for five years the blatant lies about the massive terror attacks of 9-11. The Obama administration has built its foreign policy and increased its trillion dollar war effort based on those outrageous lies. Will an administration that has willfully ignored the truth of the 9-11 terror attacks really investigate the attacks of 2013? What kind of terror cell is it that operates in Boston anyway? Can we expect the Obama administration to find the real culprits who are behind the terrorism?

Keeping these basic truths in mind about terrorism and good government should help us to make sense of the developments of the Boston bombings and spate of terrorism that seems to be breaking out across the United States this cold and unfortunate April.

Carlos Arredondo Describes the IED's at the Boston Marathon

April 16, 2013


Carlos Arredondo of Roslindale, Mass. (in cowboy hat), helped save the life of a severely wounded spectator at the Boston Marathon on April 15.


Carlos, 52, immigrated to the U.S. from Costa Rica.  He lost his first son, Alexander, in Najaf, Iraq, in 2004, which resulted in Carlos trying to kill himself when the Marines informed him of Alexander's death. His second son, deeply affected by the loss of his brother, took his own life in 2011. Carlos survived the loss of both of his sons to save another man's son at the finish line. The story of Carlos Arredondo is like a Greek tragedy.

Carlos Arredondo was an eyewitness to the terror bombing at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.  The following interview of about 3 minutes is important to listen very closely to because Carlos clearly explains how the "I.E.D." (improvised explosive device) was designed to blast away from the fence and towards the spectators and the buildings - to maximize its killing effect. The flimsy wooden fencing was apparently not damaged and the people standing on the other side of the fencing, in the street, were barely affected except for the 78-year-old runner, Bill Iffrig, who collapsed due to the shock wave.  


Bill Iffrig was running past when the IED went off directly on his left-hand side.  He initially said he was five feet away, but it was probably closer to 20.  Iffrig was hit by the shock wave, which caused him to fall.  He was, however, not injured by shrapnel while people on the sidewalk only a few feet away were killed and mutilated by it.

The fact that the bomb was evidently a sophisticated bomb that directed the blast in a certain direction indicates that the terrorists were experts at making terrorism devices. The question is, of course, who were the terrorism experts that carried out this evil terror spectacle?

The Dishonest Polls on Obama's Drone Killings

April 15, 2013

"O Man, who will discern in this work of mine the wonderful works of Nature, if you think it would be a criminal thing to destroy it, reflect how much more criminal it is to take the life of a man; and if this, his external form, appears to thee marvelously constructed, remember that it is nothing as compared with the soul that dwells in that structure; for that indeed, be it what it may, is a thing divine. Leave it then to dwell in His work at His good will and pleasure, and let not your rage or malice destroy a life – for indeed, he who does not value it, does not himself deserve it."
– Leonardo da Vinci, April 15, 1452 – May 2, 1519, Notebook XIX


Barack Obama's use of C.I.A. drones to carry out targeted killings is unethical and illegal.


The Obama administration uses C.I.A. and military drones to kill people in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Yemen. Many of those killed by drones are completely innocent civilians.


THE 16-YEAR-OLD AMERICAN CITIZEN Abdulrahman Anwar al-Awlaki was killed while eating dinner at an outdoor restaurant in Yemen. He was killed by a missile fired by a C.I.A. drone on October 14, 2011. No one has been charged in connection with his murder.


READY, AIM, FIRE - James "Jay" Carney, spokesman for the Obama administration, lies when he tells the public that the murderous drone attacks are legal, ethical, and wise. They are not. Carney is supporting the commission of war crimes, which is in fact criminal conduct on his part.

"These strikes are legal, they are ethical, and they are wise."
- White House spokesman Jay Carney on U.S. drone strikes like those that killed two American citizens in Yemen, February 2012

Recent polls suggest that a majority of Americans support using remote-controlled aircraft to kill, without any indictment or due process, people in other nations who are “suspected terrorists.”  A Gallup poll, for example, conducted on March 20-21, 2013, indicated that 65 percent of those polled agreed with the Obama administration’s policy of using drone missile strikes to kill “suspected terrorists” in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, and wherever else they might be.

A Fox News poll conducted in February 2013 found that “74 percent of voters approve of using drones to kill a suspected terrorist overseas.”  The Fox News poll showed that a majority of 60 percent supported killing a U.S. citizen by drone if he were a “suspected terrorist” in a foreign country.  The same poll found that 45 percent, nearly one in two, supported using drones to kill Americans in the United States – if they are identified as “suspected terrorists.” Are these polls believable?


President Obama frequently uses drone missiles to kill people in Pakistan.


The people of Pakistan see the U.S. drone attacks as terrorism.

WHO IS A "SUSPECTED TERRORIST?"

While these polls are obviously meant to show that American public opinion supports the Obama administration’s morally unacceptable policy of using weaponized drones to carry out targeted killings, they have achieved these results in a fraudulent way:  by using the emotionally laden term “suspected terrorist” without even defining what it means. Because “suspected terrorist” is clearly the phrase that elicited the positive response in these polls we should understand exactly what that means. 

The images of the terror attacks of 9-11 are what come to mind when most Americans are asked about terrorism, and most people would probably support killing the culprits behind those attacks. The pollsters who phrased the questions knew very well that most Americans would respond positively to a question about killing a “suspected terrorist.” But this loaded term does not even come close to describing the people who are being targeted and killed by U.S. drones in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Yemen.

The Israelis have long used the word “terrorist” to describe and delegitimize the actions of any Palestinian who resists the brutal Zionist occupation of Palestine. The U.S. has done the exact same thing since it began the “War on Terror” in the aftermath of 9-11. The United States is after all a foreign occupying power in Afghanistan and the Afghans do have the natural and legal right to use arms to resist that occupation. For its purposes the Pentagon considers “a terrorist” to be any person who engages in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners.  Using such a broad definition almost anyone in Afghanistan could be called “a suspected terrorist.”

The U.S. military and media, however, seldom use the word “terrorist” to describe the victims of U.S. drone strikes.  As a recent Columbia Law School report entitled “Counting Drone Strike Deaths” said:

Reporting on drone strike casualties, and the tracking of those reports, typically divide the dead in two categories:  “militants” and “civilians.” The hidden bias of this categorization stems from the ambiguity of the terms: they are not defined by the U.S. government, though U.S. officials use them;

RULE OF LAW OR LAW OF THE JUNGLE?

The polling results are disconnected from reality because many, if not most, of the people who have been killed by U.S. drone strikes are completely innocent civilians. The phrasing of the poll questions, however, suggests that the people being targeted by drones are all “suspected terrorists.”

A more accurate and realistic question for the poll would be:   Do you support the Obama administration's use of drones to kill people who may or may not be involved in hostilities against the U.S. occupation of Afghanistan? The drone killing question phrased in more neutral and honest language would, however, not have provided the pro-Obama results the pollsters were looking for.

 
Most of those killed in drone strikes are people who have committed no crime against the United States. If they are suspected of having committed a crime they should be arrested and tried in a court of law.

While some of those killed by drones may indeed be armed men this certainly does not mean they deserve to be killed. Killing people by drones is cold-blooded murder in which the victim’s life is taken with absolutely no due process or finding of guilt. Drone killings violate the most fundamental values of Western justice:  the presumption of innocence and the writ of habeas corpus. The state, or in this case the president, has no right to take the life of any person who is not engaged in hostilities without due process and it is utterly unethical and morally repugnant to do so.


LAW OF THE JUNGLE - The U.S. president does not have the legal right to carry out targeted killings in the United States or abroad. Obama's murderous use of drones is state terrorism and criminal.

The Last Letter

Updated March 26, 2013 

The Last Letter: A Message to George W. Bush and Dick Cheney from a Dying Veteran

To: George W. Bush and Dick Cheney

From: Tomas Young


Tomas Young of Kansas City, Missouri

I write this letter on the 10th anniversary of the Iraq War on behalf of my fellow Iraq War veterans. I write this letter on behalf of the 4,488 soldiers and Marines who died in Iraq. I write this letter on behalf of the hundreds of thousands of veterans who have been wounded and on behalf of those whose wounds, physical and psychological, have destroyed their lives. I am one of those gravely wounded. I was paralyzed in an insurgent ambush in 2004 in Sadr City. My life is coming to an end. I am living under hospice care.

I write this letter on behalf of husbands and wives who have lost spouses, on behalf of children who have lost a parent, on behalf of the fathers and mothers who have lost sons and daughters and on behalf of those who care for the many thousands of my fellow veterans who have brain injuries. I write this letter on behalf of those veterans whose trauma and self-revulsion for what they have witnessed, endured and done in Iraq have led to suicide and on behalf of the active-duty soldiers and Marines who commit, on average, a suicide a day. I write this letter on behalf of the some 1 million Iraqi dead and on behalf of the countless Iraqi wounded. I write this letter on behalf of us all—the human detritus your war has left behind, those who will spend their lives in unending pain and grief.

I write this letter, my last letter, to you, Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney. I write not because I think you grasp the terrible human and moral consequences of your lies, manipulation and thirst for wealth and power. I write this letter because, before my own death, I want to make it clear that I, and hundreds of thousands of my fellow veterans, along with millions of my fellow citizens, along with hundreds of millions more in Iraq and the Middle East, know fully who you are and what you have done. You may evade justice but in our eyes you are each guilty of egregious war crimes, of plunder and, finally, of murder, including the murder of thousands of young Americans—my fellow veterans—whose future you stole.

Your positions of authority, your millions of dollars of personal wealth, your public relations consultants, your privilege and your power cannot mask the hollowness of your character. You sent us to fight and die in Iraq after you, Mr. Cheney, dodged the draft in Vietnam, and you, Mr. Bush, went AWOL from your National Guard unit. Your cowardice and selfishness were established decades ago. You were not willing to risk yourselves for our nation but you sent hundreds of thousands of young men and women to be sacrificed in a senseless war with no more thought than it takes to put out the garbage.

I joined the Army two days after the 9/11 attacks. I joined the Army because our country had been attacked. I wanted to strike back at those who had killed some 3,000 of my fellow citizens. I did not join the Army to go to Iraq, a country that had no part in the September 2001 attacks and did not pose a threat to its neighbors, much less to the United States. I did not join the Army to “liberate” Iraqis or to shut down mythical weapons-of-mass-destruction facilities or to implant what you cynically called “democracy” in Baghdad and the Middle East. I did not join the Army to rebuild Iraq, which at the time you told us could be paid for by Iraq’s oil revenues. Instead, this war has cost the United States over $3 trillion. I especially did not join the Army to carry out pre-emptive war. Pre-emptive war is illegal under international law. And as a soldier in Iraq I was, I now know, abetting your idiocy and your crimes. The Iraq War is the largest strategic blunder in U.S. history. It obliterated the balance of power in the Middle East. It installed a corrupt and brutal pro-Iranian government in Baghdad, one cemented in power through the use of torture, death squads and terror. And it has left Iran as the dominant force in the region. On every level—moral, strategic, military and economic—Iraq was a failure. And it was you, Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney, who started this war. It is you who should pay the consequences.

I would not be writing this letter if I had been wounded fighting in Afghanistan against those forces that carried out the attacks of 9/11. Had I been wounded there I would still be miserable because of my physical deterioration and imminent death, but I would at least have the comfort of knowing that my injuries were a consequence of my own decision to defend the country I love. I would not have to lie in my bed, my body filled with painkillers, my life ebbing away, and deal with the fact that hundreds of thousands of human beings, including children, including myself, were sacrificed by you for little more than the greed of oil companies, for your alliance with the oil sheiks in Saudi Arabia, and your insane visions of empire.

I have, like many other disabled veterans, suffered from the inadequate and often inept care provided by the Veterans Administration. I have, like many other disabled veterans, come to realize that our mental and physical wounds are of no interest to you, perhaps of no interest to any politician. We were used. We were betrayed. And we have been abandoned. You, Mr. Bush, make much pretense of being a Christian. But isn’t lying a sin? Isn’t murder a sin? Aren’t theft and selfish ambition sins? I am not a Christian. But I believe in the Christian ideal. I believe that what you do to the least of your brothers you finally do to yourself, to your own soul.

My day of reckoning is upon me. Yours will come. I hope you will be put on trial. But mostly I hope, for your sakes, that you find the moral courage to face what you have done to me and to many, many others who deserved to live. I hope that before your time on earth ends, as mine is now ending, you will find the strength of character to stand before the American public and the world, and in particular the Iraqi people, and beg for forgiveness.

Obama's Trip to Birthplace of "War on Terror"

 March 19, 2013


Obama's visit to Israel will bring him face-to-face with the Zionist architects of the false-flag terrorism of 9-11 and the fraudulent "War on Terror," which is a massive fraud that has already cost the United States more than $3.1 Trillion. The interest paid on Pentagon spending alone (from 2001 through FY 2013) is about $259 billion in current dollars.

The cost in broken lives and suffering is beyond calculation.

President Obama's trip to Israel and Jerusalem will be his first visit as president to the birthplace of the Zionist deception known as the "War on Terror." While the Israelis are known to stage false-flag terror events to impress high-level foreign visitors, such an event seems rather unlikely during the upcoming Obama visit because the status quo is acceptable to the Israelis:  the so-called peace process remains stuck in the deep freeze and Obama has done nothing to thaw it. The rapacious Israeli regime headed by Benjamin Netanyahu and Shimon Peres (born Szymon Perski in Wiszniew, Poland) continues to build illegal settlements on occupied territory while the Obama administration does nothing to stop it, so why use any fireworks? Simple Israeli logic.

Today, the state of Israel is ruled by the same ruthless and violent terrorists who gave us 9-11 and the fraudulent "War on Terror." Obama's visit to Israel is, therefore, the visit of the leader of a woefully deceived nation to the foreign power who imposed the evil deception upon it. Having lost an untold number of lives and having wasted trillions of dollars on illegal and unnecessary wars, the Israeli deception has cost America dearly.

While most Americans saw the terror attacks of 9-11 as the beginning of the "War on Terror," the ideological framework of this Zionist fraud was actually born in Jerusalem during an international conference on terrorism held by the Jonathan [Netanyahu] Institute in early July 1979 - twenty-two years before the terror attacks that changed America. What is most important to note is that the same people who created the fraudulent "War on Terror" are currently running the state of Israel.


The notorious Zionist terrorist Menachem Begin, who masterminded the bombing of the King David Hotel in 1946, became Israel's prime minister in 1977.  Begin headed the committee behind the Jerusalem Conference on International Terrorism in 1979, which "fabricated and helped spread misinformation about the worldwide terrorist threat."

Israel's prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, for example, was one of the founders of the Jonathan Institute, which hosted the conference, and his father, Benzion, was the institute's founding chairman. Benzion gave the opening speech and announced the purpose of the conference:

This conference was called to serve as the beginning of a new process - the purpose of rallying the democracies of the world to a struggle against terrorism and the dangers it represents.


MILEIKOWSKY FATHER AND SON - Benjamin Netanyahu and his father, Benzion Mileikowsky from Warsaw, Poland. Benzion was the secretary of Vladimir Jabotinsky, the founder of Revisionist Zionism, which calls for the military conquest of all of Palestine and expulsion of the non-Jewish population. His son has furthered these goals. 9-11 was an essential part of the Zionist deception, a terror spectacle designed to change U.S. public opinion and drag the United States military into the Middle East - to fight Israel's enemies.

THE JERUSALEM CONNECTION

"In the summer of 1979, a group of powerful and influential people joined to launch an international propaganda offensive to promote and exploit the issue of 'international terrorism'," Philip Paull of San Francisco State University wrote in his 1982 thesis on the Jerusalem Conference on International Terrorism. "The propaganda 'blitz' originated in Jerusalem. The conspiratorial network included present and former members of the Israeli and United States governments...

"This 'anti-terrorist' propaganda campaign was and is being conducted in a style reminiscent of wartime 'psychological warfare' by journalists serving as conduits and spreaders of misinformation originating in Jerusalem," Paull wrote in his thesis, which I recently obtained a copy of.

Paull's thesis from 1982 is important because it documents and validates my claim that the Zionist fraud known as the "War on Terror" actually began in the late 1970s when Menachem Begin and his gang of Irgun terrorists came to power in Israel.  1979, the year of the Jerusalem conference, was the same year that Isser Harel, the founder of Israeli intelligence, told the American Zionist Michael D. Evans that Arab terrorists were planning to attack the tallest buildings in New York City. Harel's comments reveal that Israeli intelligence was already preparing the false-flag terrorism attacks that occurred at the World Trade Center in 1993 and 2001.

As I point out in "The Architecture of Terror" in Solving 9-11, senior Mossad agents had obtained the security contract for the World Trade Center in 1987 for a company called Atwell Security of Tel Aviv. The Mossad had not gone to great lengths to obtain the security contract for the WTC and the Port Authority in order to prevent "Arab terrorists" from attacking the Twin Towers, but in order to make the attacks happen. The contract with Atwell Security was terminated in April 1987 when it was discovered that the company's president was a high-level Mossadnik criminal who was using an alias. Had the contract not been terminated, the terror attacks that destroyed the Twin Towers would probably have happened many years earlier.

As Paull demonstrates in his thesis, "the entire notion of 'international terrorism' as promoted by the Jerusalem Conference rests on a faulty, dishonest, and ultimately corrupt information base." This is equally true of the official versions of the terror attacks of 1993 and 2001. They are nothing more than packs of lies designed to place the blame on Arabs and Muslims.

The American people have been the primary target of the vicious 'psychological warfare' waged by the Israeli government. The purpose of the Israeli psychological warfare is to create fear through false-flag terrorism like 9-11 in order to impose the Zionist fraud known as the "War on Terror". I have done my utmost to provide an antidote to this fear and deception with my book, Solving 9-11: The Deception that Changed the World.


The Solving 9-11 set of books identifies the real culprits of 9-11 and explains how and why the false-flag terrorism was carried out in the United States.

"The heightened global media coverage of 'international terrorism'", Paull wrote, "was for the most part a result of a deliberate, well-financed, international propaganda campaign initiated by the Israeli government."

The theme of 'international terrorism' "was used to portray the 'Free World', including Israel, as essentially on the defensive before a virtual epidemic of terrorism which treatened the very fabric of civilization," Paull wrote. "But in order to transfigure 'international terrorism' into a political bubonic plague, it was necessary to produce false and misleading 'information', or misinformation." Paull's thesis explains how the Netanyahu institute and the Israeli government used misinformation to "deliberately exploit the emotions of fear and anxiety."

After Benzion Netanyahu, the second speaker at the conference was Shimon Peres, who is currently the president of the state of Israel. Menachem Begin, the former terrorist head of the Irgun, was the final speaker on the first night of the 1979 conference.  By using misinformation and lies to draw a connection between the Soviet Union and the Palestinian liberation movement (PLO), the wily Israelis sought to delegitimize the Palestinian resistance by deceiving the public. They had their American supporters among them; George H.W. Bush gave a speech during the closing session of the conference.

The false-flag terror attacks of 9-11 and the fraudulent "War on Terror", with its disastrous wars of aggression in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, and beyond, were conceived and created in Israel by the hard-line Likud terrorists who came to power under Menachem Begin in 1977. These are the people who hosted the Jerusalem conference in 1979. These same people and their sons and daughters control the state of Israel today. There is certainly not much to hope for from Obama's meeting with these ruthless criminal terrorists unless they are arrested and brought to justice. Unfortunately, that is probably not on Obama's agenda.

Why Aren't Bush and Cheney in Jail?

The International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg, which followed World War II, called the waging of aggressive war "essentially an evil thing...to initiate a war of aggression...is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime, differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole."

March 19, 2013, marks the 10th anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq. Hubris: Selling the Iraq War is a current documentary that describes how senior officials of the Bush-Cheney administration conspired to take the United States into an illegal war of aggression, the mother of all war crimes.

Day after day, interview after interview, these war mongers looked us in the eye and fed the world a deceptive stew of uranium bought by Saddam Hussein from Niger, weapons of mass destruction (WMDs), connections between Saddam and Osama bin Laden, mythical meetings of terrorists and a heap of other falsehoods.

By 2005, it was clear that there were no WMDS yet Bush continued to push forward with the war. President Obama finally declared end of the Iraq War at the end of 2011. To this day, Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Condi Rice admit no guilt or remorse about their decision to invade Iraq under false pretenses. So the question remains, why are these war criminals not being tried for treason or hauled before the International Criminal Court?

When we the People are unaware, silent, fearful to speak up and stand up when we see injustice, it is us that will be impacted the most and our democracy weakened. Wrong is wrong, yet we allow selective prosecution of our white-collar criminals.

If former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich can go to jail for trying to sell a senate seat, surely the Bush criminals should face charges for an illegal war that resulted in the deaths and casualties of thousands and nearly bankrupted our government.

Ten Years of Being Fleeced by Homeland Security

March 1, 2013

In 2012, total federal spending on education was $67.6 billion, 
while we spent $109 billion on the war in Afghanistan.

THE ISRAELI AGENT MICHAEL CHERTOFF was head of the Department of Homeland Security from 2005 to 2009. An Israeli national and the son of a Mossad agent, Chertoff was the key official who supervised the non-investigation of 9-11 and the destruction of the crucial evidence. Chertoff was behind these crimes.


CHERTOFF THE TERRORIST may be a concept that is difficult to grasp, but it is the truth. Chertoff was a key player in the FBI false-flag bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993 and the mastermind of the 9-11 cover-up. A real investigation of 9-11 would begin with the arrest of Michael Chertoff.

The United States has spent a jaw-dropping $791 billion on “homeland security” since 9/11. To give you a sense of just how big that is, Washington spent an inflation-adjusted $500 billion on the entire New Deal. Despite sucking up a sum of money that could have rebuilt crumbling infrastructure from coast to coast, this new agency and the very concept of “homeland security” have largely flown beneath the media radar -- with disastrous results.

“Homeland Security” - The Trillion-Dollar Concept That No One Can Define

Imagine a labyrinthine government department so bloated that few have any clear idea of just what its countless pieces do. Imagine that tens of billions of tax dollars are disappearing into it annually, black hole-style, since it can’t pass a congressionally mandated audit.

Now, imagine that there are two such departments, both gigantic, and you’re beginning to grasp the new, twenty-first century American security paradigm.

For decades, the Department of Defense has met this definition to a T. Since 2003, however, it hasn’t been alone. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which celebrates its 10th birthday this March, has grown into a miniature Pentagon. It’s supposed to be the actual “defense” department -- since the Pentagon is essentially a Department of Offense -- and it’s rife with all the same issues and defects that critics of the military-industrial complex have decried for decades. In other words, “homeland security” has become another obese boondoggle.

But here’s the strange thing: unlike the Pentagon, this monstrosity draws no attention whatsoever -- even though, by our calculations, this country has spent a jaw-dropping $791 billion on “homeland security” since 9/11. To give you a sense of just how big that is, Washington spent an inflation-adjusted $500 billion on the entire New Deal.

Despite sucking up a sum of money that could have rebuilt crumbling infrastructure from coast to coast, this new agency and the very concept of “homeland security” have largely flown beneath the media radar -- with disastrous results.

Italian Court Convicts CIA Kidnappers

February 1, 2013 

Italian Court Convicts 3 Americans in 2003 CIA Kidnapping

Head of CIA Kidnapping Ring Lives Openly in Santa Monica - Refuses to Talk to Press

February 1, 2013 (AP and press reports)

A Milan appeals court on Friday vacated acquittals for a former CIA station chief and two other Americans, and instead convicted them in the 2003 abduction of an Egyptian terror suspect from a Milan street as part of the CIA's extraordinary rendition program.

The decision means that all 26 Americans tried in absentia for the abduction now have been found guilty.  The ongoing trials, which have dragged on for years, brought the first convictions anywhere in the world against CIA agents involved in kidnappings that led to torture.

An appeals court sentenced former CIA Rome station chief Jeffrey Castelli to seven years, and handed sentences of six years each to Americans Betnie Medero and Ralph Russomando. A lower court, while convicting 23 other Americans in November 2009, had acquitted the three, citing diplomatic immunity.

Italy's highest court last year upheld the convictions of the 23 other Americans in absentia in the abduction of an Egyptian terror suspect Osama Moustafa Hassan Nasr, also known as Abu Omar, on Feb. 17, 2003. Nasr was transferred to U.S. military bases in Italy, then Germany, before being flown to Egypt, where he alleges he was tortured. He has since been released.


Abu Omar

Those convicted in the original trial included the former Milan CIA station chief, Robert Seldon Lady, whose original seven-year sentence was raised to nine years by Italy's high court. The other 22 Americans, all but one identified by prosecutors as CIA agents, also saw their sentences stiffened on the final appeal, from five to seven years. The high court ruling marked their final appeal.

Last year an Italian court upheld the convictions of 23 CIA agents over the same incident and ordered new appeals trials for five Italian intelligence agents, including Italy's top two former military intelligence officers, Nicola Pollari and his ex-deputy Marco Mancini.

The Italian Supreme Court ordered the 23 CIA agents to pay one million Euros in damages to Abu Omar and 500,000 Euros to his wife.

Jeffrey W. Castelli, the former CIA station chief, now lives in Santa Monica, California, and has apublished listing in the White Pages at 827 12thStreet.

I called Castelli, executive vice president of a Los Angeles-based CIA company called PhaseOne Communications, to ask for his comments on the conviction.  His wife Jennifer answered the phone and said that Jeff was not willing to discuss the case or his conviction.  “Take me off your list,” Mrs. Castelli said.  


The convicted head of the kidnapping ring, Jeff Castelli, now lives in Santa Monica and works as executive vice president for a CIA communications/ad company called PhaseOne.

MALI - France Fights for Rothschild Gold

January 19, 2013


FRENCH TROOPS IN MALI - After six days of aerial attacks, on January 16, 2013, French troops began to engage the Islamist rebels whose advances to the south are threatening to overthrow the unelected military regime - and the Rothschild-owned gold mines.


The real reason for the French military intervention in Mali is to protect the foreign-owned gold mining operations, which produce hundreds of thousands of ounces of gold for the owners per year.


MALI IS 'GOLD COUNTRY' - Foreign investors profit from the gold of Mali while its people wallow in poverty.  Nine out of ten people in Mali live in dire poverty and 72 percent of the population survives on less than a dollar a day.  Ninety percent of the Malian population is Muslim. 


The Tuareg and Islamist rebels control the north while the military coup leaders control the south.  The gold mines that the French troops are protecting are in the south and west of Mali.

"France, in this operation, is not pursuing any interest ... other than safeguarding a friendly country, and does not have any goal other than fighting against terrorism."
- French President Francois Hollande on the French intervention in Mali

“We - not just the French, but all nations - have to combatterrorism.” 
- French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius on Mali

WHY MALI? 

With U.S. assistance, the French are now waging war against the rebels in Mali.  Why did France suddenly decide to wage war in the west African nation?  If you were to listen to what the French and American leaders say about their military intervention, you would probably think the French, Danish, British, and U.S. operation in Mali is aimed at stopping terrorism, which is what they want you to think.  The real purpose of the French intervention, however, is to protect the Rothschild-owned gold mining operations in the south from being taken over. Mali is the third largest gold producer in Africa after South Africa and Ghana and the biggest mines in Mali are owned by Rothschild-controlled firms. 

France began its intervention on January 11, 2013, using aerial attacks to try and halt the Islamists' advance into the southern part of Mali.  Three days later, the UN Security Council unanimously backed the intervention.  On January 16, French troops began to engage in combat operations on the ground in Mali.  The United States is also deeply involved in the conflict, which it describes as part of the fraudulent "War on Terror."  The U.S. reportedly will not send troops to Mali because the ruling regime, which France is supporting, took power through a military coup in 2012. Contractors working with the military, however, are being deployed to Mali.

U.S. Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta said that U.S. assistance includes air and other logistical support.  American spy planes and surveillance drones are already involved. Panetta said that even though Mali was far from the United States, the Obama administration was deeply worried about extremist groups there, including Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb. “We’re concerned that any time Al Qaeda establishes a base of operations, while they might not have any immediate plans for attacks in the United States and in Europe, that ultimately that still remains their objective,” he said.

Neither the French nor the U.S. leaders say anything about protecting the Rothschild-owned gold mines, but portray their effort in Mali as part of the global war against terrorism.  But that doesn't make any sense at all because the Islamic rebel movement that the French and U.S. are fighting against in Mali is very much like the Free Syrian army they support in Syria, and not unlike the one they supported in Libya.  In all three cases the regime being challenged by Islamic rebels came to power through military coups. 

THE GOLD OF MALI


Gold mining made Mansa Musa I of Mali (14th Century) the richest person in all history, according to a list of the world’s richest people of all time. Second on the list is the Rothschild family, the richest people on the planet. Today, companies controlled by the Rothschild family own the largest gold mines in Mali.  The Rothschilds are not generous like Mansa Musa, who gave away much of his gold on his pilgrimage to Mecca.


The gold mines are located in the far west and south of Mali.


This chart shows the extremely small role the state has in the ownership and operation of Mali's mines. The real owners:  AngloGold Ashanti, Randgold, and IAMgold are all companies tied to the Rothschild family.  The first three mines are directly tied to NM Rothschild and had produced 233 tonnes of gold by 2003, which would be worth more than $14 billion at $1,900 per troy ounce, the value gold reached in 2011.


The Sadiola mine production figures from IAMGOLD

In Mali, there are three main companies that control the majority of the mining sector. These companies are AngloGold Ashanti, Randgold, and IAMgold.  The companies are all owned or financed by the Rothschild family.  The Sadiola and Morila mines of Mali, both run by Rothschild-owned companies, produced 83 percent of all gold produced in Mali between 1999 and 2001. This amounts to hundreds of millions of dollars worth of gold being extracted from the Rothschild mines in Mali, every year.

The chairman of AngloGold Ashanti, shareholder and operator of the two biggest gold mines, was Russell Philip Edey from 2002-2010.  Edey also served as Vice-president of NM Rothschild Corporate Finance Limited and chairman of a whole host of Rothschild-owned companies, as can be seen by his BusinessWeek executive profile.  

AngloGold Ashanti has 20 operations in 10 countries on four continents and produced 4.33 million ounces (Moz) of gold in 2011, generating $6.6bn in gold income, according to the company website.

Randgold is another Rothschild-controlled company.  This can be seen in who sits on the board of the company.  Christopher Lewis Coleman, for example, is an independent non-executive director of Randgold Resources Ltd. since 2008. Coleman is also Managing Director of Rothschild, Co-Head of Banking of N M Rothschild & Sons Ltd., and Chairman of Rothschild Bank International Ltd.

IAMgold is a Canadian-based mining company that has been financed by N.M. Rothschild since at least April 2008.

report on the impact of gold mining in Mali begins:

Investors see in Mali the perfect environment for resource extraction with none of the responsibility of honoring human rights, contributing to the state economy, or respecting environmental conditions. Mali traditional culture says that “gold belongs to the devil” and according to this tradition, gold appears when the devil is happy and disappears when he is upset. 

Today, the gold of Mali belongs primarily to the Rothschild family and their partners who are running the gold mines of Mali.  The French military intervention has more to do with protecting these lucrative foreign-owned gold mining operations than defending France and the West from "Islamic terrorism."  

In the case of Mali the real motivation for the military intervention can be clearly seen and it has nothing to do with "fighting terrorism."   The fraudulent "War on Terror," started in the immediate aftermath of the false-flag terror attacks of 9-11, is, in reality, all about disguising military operations to protect the corporate plundering of valuable and strategic resources from poor Muslim nations, like Mali. 

Obama's Drone Terrorism

December 15, 2012


OBAMA THE TYRANT - Barack Obama uses drones and Hellfire missiles extensively to carry out extra-judicial killings and terrorize the civilian populations living under the drones.  American researchers have found that U.S. drones often use the well-known terrorist tactic of striking a second time after first responders have arrived to tend to those injured in the first attack.  This is criminal. 

U.S. drones flying over Afghanistan and Pakistan employ a terrorism tactic known as the "double tap," which the U.S. government itselfconsiders to be a terrorist act and a war crime.  The double tap tactic is when a drone strikes a targeted site with ‘Hellfire’ missiles in relatively quick succession, meaning that the second missile often kills the first responders aiding the victims of the first strike.   

A 2012 report from the NYU School of Law and Stanford Law School entitled Living Under Drones concludes that this tactic raises "crucial moral and legal concerns.  Not only does the practice put into question the extent to which secondary strikes comply with international humanitarian law’s basic rules ... but it also potentially violates specific legal protections for medical and humanitarian personnel, and for the wounded.  As international law experts have noted, intentional strikes on first responders may constitute war crimes."

If there are "secondary drone strikes on rescuers who are helping (the injured) after an initial drone attack, those further attacks are a war crime," Christof Heyns, U.N. special rapporteur on extrajudicial killings, told The Guardian

It is quite clear that Obama’s drone war is both illegal and immoral. “There is absolutely nothing in the Constitution that allows the president to make private war on individuals,” Esquire’s Charles P. Pierce wrote about Obama’s “kill list.”

The Assault on Gaza - Where is our morality?

November 25, 2012

The current crisis [in Gaza] is framed in terms devoid of any real context. The issue goes far beyond which side precipitated the terrible violence that has killed innocents on both sides. The issue – largely forgotten – is one of continued occupation and blockade, a grossly asymmetrical conflict that has deliberately and systematically disabled Gaza’s economy and people.
- “Where’s our humanity for Gaza?” by Sara Roy, Boston Globe, November 23, 2012


The majority of the victims of Israel's military onslaught against Gaza were civilians.  More than 30 children were killed during the recent 8-day Israeli offensive.  The Palestinians have absolutely no defense against the advanced weaponry given to Israel by the U.S. government.  How can any moral person accept such crimes?

Amidst the many articles found in the media coverage of the latest Israeli military aggression against Gaza it was a great relief to see Sara Roy’s excellent piece in the Boston Globe“Where’s our humanity for Gaza?” 

Roy, a Senior Research Scholar at the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at Harvard University, focuses on the grim reality of life in the Israeli-occupied territory. She is an author and expert on the brutal conditions the people of the Gaza Strip are forced to cope with as they struggle to survive under Israel’s genocidal siege policy of “economic warfare.”

ON THE BRINK OF COLLAPSE

Roy presents evidence that the U.S. State Department is well aware of the genocidal strategy behind Israel’s “economic warfare” against the people of Gaza:

In a Nov. 2008 cable from the US embassy in Tel Aviv released by WikiLeaks, US officials wrote, “As part of their overall embargo plan against Gaza, Israeli officials have confirmed . . . on multiple occasions that they intend to keep the Gazan economy on the brink of collapse without quite pushing it over the edge” with the aim of having Gaza’s economy “functioning at the lowest level possible consistent with avoiding a humanitarian crisis.” This was achieved through an Israeli-imposed blockade that ended all normal trade.

I am appalled to see the leaders of the United States and Germany voicing support for Israel’s latest military assault against the defenseless population of Gaza. When our political leaders support the bombing of a defenseless civilian population, we should ask where is our morality?

The immorality of bombing defenseless civilians is seldom discussed in the controlled media of the United States. From the fire-bombing of Dresden and scores of other German cities, to dropping atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, to the Vietnam War, to the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan, the U.S. military has spent much of the past 67 years bombing defenseless civilians. The Israeli military assaults on Gaza are not very different from the U.S. assault on Fallujah in 2004. 


THE HYPOCRISY OF OBAMA'S DRONE POLICY - Obama's use of drones to bomb targets in Pakistan has resulted in thousands of civilian deaths.  Unlike the unguided missiles fired from Gaza, the U.S. guided missiles (used by the C.I.A. and Israel) always hit their targets and are extremely lethal. 

Americans are, generally, very moral people and would be opposed to any military killing un-armed civilians as the Israelis do in Gaza and as U.S. troops did in Iraq. Most Americans would naturally oppose the U.S. use of drones to kill people in Pakistan if they understood the reality of the situation.  Americans would protest vigorously if animals were killed in the same brutal way that the Palestinians of Gaza were killed during the latest Israeli offensive.   

In order to try to neutralize the moral outrage the propagandists work very hard to portray their victims, in this case the people of Gaza, as a great threat. The Israeli propaganda machine, for example, greatly exaggerates the threat of the missiles coming from Gaza, in order to allow the military to carry out its pre-planned aggression as “self-defense”. Likewise in America, the public was stunned by the “shock and awe” tactics of 9-11, and the Bush administration exploited the fear and anger to wage war against one of the poorest countries in the world. In reality, the American people have no reason to fear the people of Iraq or Afghanistan - so the fear had to be created. This is what the false-flag terrorism of 9-11 was meant to achieve.

Very few outsiders have visited Gaza and it is impossible to imagine what it is like if you haven’t been there. I’ve been there several times, most recently in 1991 just after the first Gulf War, when I was allowed to accompany Edmond Lee Browning, the Presiding Bishop and Primate of the Episcopal Church in America. At the end of our visit to Gaza, Bishop Browning told me to tell the people back home about what I had seen in the besieged and occupied territory in which some 1.7 million Palestinians live. The Gaza Strip, some 25 miles in length and 5 miles wide, is a huge gated community – where the gates are locked on the outside. It is best described as the world’s largest open-air prison. The Israeli military is the warden of the prison who controls all access to and egress from the strip.

“A GROSSLY ASYMMETRICAL CONFLICT”

What I cannot understand is how anyone could support killing the defenseless civilians of Gaza, penned within a confined space, like sheep in a pen or horses in a corral. It's like shooting fish in a barrel.  Less than one hundred years ago, wars were fought between armies on battlefields; now civilians are the targets of armies using the most advanced weapons in the world. When our leaders support such egregious crimes against humanity we should ask ourselves, where is our morality?

The U.S. Marine Who Spoke Out about 9-11

Updated August 30, 2012
Added note about Judge Sharrett's nephew Pfc. David H. Sharrett II, who was killed by 'friendly fire' in Iraq in 2008.

"THEY DECEIVED OUR ENTIRE NATION WITH TERRORISM"

Brandon J. Raub, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran of both Iraq and Afghanistan wars, was released on Thursday, August 23, after being detained for psychiatric evaluation because of his Facebook postings.  Judge W. Allan Sharrett said that the involuntary commitment order against Raub was invalid because it contained no allegation or basis to hold him.

Note:  The judge in this case knows all about the lies and human toll of war.  Judge William Allan Sharrett's nephew, Pfc. David H. Sharrett II of Oakton, Virginia, was killed in Iraq, the victim of “friendly fire.”  Sharrett was assigned to the 101st Airborne Division, and the private first class was deployed to Iraq in September 2007. He was killed four months later, near Balad, at age 27.  The Washington Post has an extensive story about the unexplained death of David Sharrett, complete with video footage, entitled "A closer look at those in the Dave Sharrett case".

WHAT DID RAUB WRITE ABOUT?

But these wars are lies. They are lies. They deceived our entire nation with terrorism. They have gotten us to hand them our rights. Our Rights!  Men died for those rights!

September Eleventh [9-11] was an inside job. They blew up a third building in broad daylight. Building 7.

Your leaders betrayed you.
- Brandon J Raub, “The Truth“, November 11, 2011

 
Brandon Raub, a Marine Corps veteran of both Iraq and Afghanistan wars, was arrested at his Virginia home and put into forced detention to undergo psychological evaluation.  This is what was done to political dissidents in the former Soviet Union.  While the arrest of Brandon Raub is a huge Internet story, it has been ignored by the controlled press.  A search on Library.PressDisplay.com (August 21) found only 5 press reports of this unconstitutional arrest.  There were two stories in the Richmond Times-Dispatch, while the local Progress-Index, the New Haven Register, and the Tulsa World ran the AP story by Larry O'Dell on August 21.  

Chesterfield police Lt. Rich McCullough said he understood that Raub was still being held at the hospital as of Sunday afternoon but stressed that county police had nothing to do with the situation apart from transporting him there on behalf of the FBI.

"We did not initiate this. We were simply assisting them on this," he said. "I can't tell you exactly what the status of Mr. Raub is, or when he's going to be released. It's not a criminal matter."

On the online program "The Josh Tolley Show," Thomas said her son had served in Iraq and Afghanistan, and she described him as "very sane, very sound-minded." Raub and his brother, she said, were "just strong patriots."
- Richmond Times-Dispatch - August 20, 2012

"THE POLICE STATE IS HERE"

"For government officials to not only arrest Brandon Raub for doing nothing more than exercising his First Amendment rights but to actually force him to undergo psychological evaluations and detain him against his will goes against every constitutional principle this country was founded upon. This should be a wake-up call to Americans that the police state is here."
- John Whitehead of Virginia's Rutherford Institute on the government detention of Brandon Raub.

U.S. Marine Corps veteran Brandon Raub was arrested at his home in Virginia for speaking out about the government and 9-11 on Facebook.  Although he has not been charged with a crime he was handcuffed and taken away by the police, which is very similar to what happened to me 6 years ago, although I was tortured with a TASER first and suffered a broken elbow:

The following video contains an interview with Raub's mother by Josh Tolley with details about the forced detention of Brandon.

Murder by Drone is Still Murder

August 7, 2012


A [Grim] Reaper drone launches a Hellfire missile.  The CIA has used such weaponized drones to kill some 2,500 Pakistani civilians in the past three years. 


The Pakistani people see the extra-judicial murders as terrorism.


If Americans were being targeted, would we accept murder and terrorism by foreign drones?

One wonders if drone pilot Col. D. Scott Brenton listens to Louis Armstrong in the suburban Air National Guard Base in Syracuse from which he murders people 7,000 miles away… When instructed to kill someone he has stalked from the air for a prolonged period, “I feel no emotional attachment to the enemy,” Brenton insists. I have a duty, and I execute my duty.” When the deed is done, he points out, nobody “in my immediate environment is aware of anything that has occurred.”
- “Portrait of a Drone Killer: ‘I Have a Duty, and I Execute My Duty’,” by William Grigg, LewRockwell.com, July 30, 2012

The number of U.S. drone strikes in Pakistan alone has increased from 52 under President George W. Bush to 282 so far under President Barack Obama, with more than 2,200 people killed by drones in that country over the past three years, according to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism… the U.S. currently deploys drones in noncombat zones in countries where no formal war has been declared. How comfortable would America be if other countries, including its enemies, did the same? What moral ground can America claim if and when that happens?

- “Drones in an ethically unknown territory,” Deseret News, August 6, 2012

The New York Times recently published an article entitled “A Day Job Waiting for a Kill Shot a World Away” which discussed the Obama administration’s increasing use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), i.e. drones, to murder people around the world:

HANCOCK FIELD AIR NATIONAL GUARD BASE, N.Y. — From his computer console here in the Syracuse suburbs, Col. D. Scott Brenton remotely flies a Reaper drone that beams back hundreds of hours of live video of insurgents, his intended targets, going about their daily lives 7,000 miles away in Afghanistan. Sometimes he and his team watch the same family compound for weeks.  

“I see mothers with children, I see fathers with children, I see fathers with mothers, I see kids playing soccer,” Colonel Brenton said.  

When the call comes for him to fire a missile and kill a militant — and only, Colonel Brenton said, when the women and children are not around — the hair on the back of his neck stands up, just as it did when he used to line up targets in his F-16 fighter jet.  

Afterward, just like the old days, he compartmentalizes. “I feel no emotional attachment to the enemy,” he said. “I have a duty, and I execute the duty.”

The discussion in the mainstream media about the morality and ethics of drone warfare fails to address the most basic facts about why murderous drone strikes are immoral and repugnant. 

The first thing to keep in mind is that the United States is not at war with any of the nations in which it carries out nearly daily bombings with drones, such as Pakistan.  Yet the Central Intelligence Agency of the United States has killed more than 2,200 people in Pakistan using drones as stealth bombers during the past three years.  The Obama administration calls these murderous bombings counter-terrorism operations when they are, in fact, the clearest evidence that the "War on Terror" is actually a "War of Terror." 

It should come as no surprise that this same drone technology was employed to carry out the 9-11 terror atrocity, which was then exploited to usher in the Zionist fraud known as the “War on Terror”.  The United States has basically adopted the tactics and logic of terrorism employed for decades by the most ruthless Zionist terrorists, people like Menachem Begin and Yitzhak Shamir.

If a foreign power were flying drones over the United States and killing Americans with Hellfire missiles, would we accept it as easily as we do when our nation does it to others?  There is certainly nothing ethical or legal about sneaking into a foreign country with which you are not at war and bombing its people.  It is murder, plain and simple, and the fact that it is done by people from the CIA or the Pentagon does nothing to change that basic fact. 

Act One: The Bus Bomb in Bulgaria

July 21, 2012


The scene of the bus bomb at Burgas airport, Bulgaria

"Iran is responsible for the terror attack in Bulgaria, we will have a strong response against Iranian terror." 
- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the July 19 bus bombing in Bulgaria

"All signs point to Iran. This is an Iranian terror campaign that is spreading throughout the world.”
- Benjamin Netanyahu in a statement

“Hezbollah is behind the attack, it was part of a series of attacks. We know that Iran is behind it all. What we don’t know is who the actual man is.”
- Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak to Channel 2 TV

"We were witnesses to a deadly terror attack coming out of Iran ... We know there were other attempts, and this time they succeeded."
- Israel's President Shimon Peres


Israel's troika of terrorists:  Shimon Peres, Benjamin Netanyahu, and Ehud Barak

SUBTLE AS A SLEDGEHAMMER

The troika of Israeli masterminds of false-flag terrorism, Ehud Barak, Benjamin Netanyahu, and Shimon Peres, were all quick to blame Hezbollah and Iran for the bus bombing in Bulgaria on July 19. These same three Israeli leaders acted in the exact same way on 
9-11, blaming Osama Bin Laden and the Taliban of Afghanistan. The three senior Israeli officials, however, have yet to present a single piece of evidence to prove that either Iran or Hezbollah were involved the bombing. So, what really happened at the Burgas airport?

Neither Iran nor Hezbollah are known to be supporters of terrorism.  They are, quite the contrary, both very much engaged in resisting and defending themselves against Israeli terrorism. The bombing at the Bulgarian airport simply does not show any indication of Iranian involvement, despite the claims of Bibi Netanyahu. The signs, on the other hand, all point to the bombing being an Israeli false-flag terror operation. What are those signs?

CUI BONO?

Firstly, neither Iran nor Hezbollah have anything to gain by bombing Israeli tourists in Bulgaria. Why would Iran or Hezbollah, both known to be extremely rational actors, commit a senseless terror act that gains them nothing but leaves them wide open to criticism and retribution? It should be noted that both Iran and Hezbollah have denied any role in the bombing.

Secondly, why would Barak, Netanyahu, and Peres be so quick to blame Iran and Hezbollah? What if another entity were to suddenly come forward and claim responsibility for the bombing? Wouldn’t they look stupid? So, how can they be so confident that another party won’t claim responsibility?  Because they know who carried out the bombing - and it wasn’t Iran or Hezbollah. 

But, why would Israel carry out a false-flag terror attack in Bulgaria now? 

The airport bus bombing is the latest in a string of Israeli false-flag attacks in which Israelis were the victims.  The attacks in Georgia, India, and Thailand are all part of the Israeli preliminary terror campaign.  The bus bombing at Burgas is very similar to the false-flag bombings carried out by Israeli agents in the John Le Carré 1983 novel and George Roy Hill film, The Little Drummer Girl.  The primary purpose of the Bulgaria bus bombing is only to create the appearance that Iran is supporting terrorists in Europe – on the eve of the Olympic Games in London. This is why I call it a “primer attack”, i.e. a false-flag terror event designed to create the impression that Iran is carrying out terrorist attacks against Israelis. The purpose of a “primer attack” is to create the ideation, i.e. the mental base, and prepare the public mind for a much larger and more spectacular terror atrocity, which will certainly be blamed on Iran. It is all part of a process to train the public to accept the false interpretation without evidence and to shape public opinion to support aggressive military action against the Islamic Republic of Iran.  It's criminal deception and we've been through it all before.

In this way the bus bombing in Bulgaria is like the first bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993, which was a "primer attack" that was designed to impress on the public the false notion that Arab terrorists were trying to destroy the Twin Towers.  As we know the FBI was instrumental in creating the bomb and framing the "terrorists".  Terrorism is like a Hollywood movie; it is the appearance of reality that is important, not reality itself. 

In The Little Drummer Girl Le Carré wrote:   “Terror is theatre... Theatre's a con trick.  Do you know what that means?  Con trick?  You've been deceived.”  

The bus bombing in Bulgaria is just the first act in this evil play; be prepared for the second act - and don't be deceived. 

Surveillance Society - NSA's Secret Deal with White House

July 20, 2012

"If you take what has been happening since; in the post 9-11 security world, what you're seeing is the establishment of a surveillance society."
- Thomas Andrews Drake on the degree of government surveillance on the American population post 9-11

"And you also have the fear element.  Fear in itself is control.  And what people will do when they're fearful is they will begin to censor themselves."
- Thomas A. Drake on fear as a tool of control

"You go after the messenger because the last thing you want to do is deal with the message."
- Thomas A. Drake on how the government attacks investigative journalists

The following video interview with whistleblowerThomas Andrews Drake, formerly with the National Security Agency (NSA), reveals the degree to which the NSA is conducting surveillance of the people of the United States in violation of the U.S. Constitution.  Drake makes many excellent points in this interview, which I recommend viewing.

The Massacres in Syria and Israel's "War of Terror"

June 19, 2012

This treatment of Sharon has one great merit: it makes crystal clear that the "war on terror" is a "war of terror."
- Edward S. Herman, “Ariel Sharon: From Sabra and Shatila to Jenin,” Z Magazine, June 2002

In a dispatch on Friday, the official SANA news agency said "large amounts of modern and advanced weapons" intercepted in a car coming from neighboring Lebanon included American-made sniper rifles and heavy machine guns, some of them manufactured in Israel.
- "Evidence of Massacre Seen at Syrian Town," International Herald Tribune, June 9-10, 2012

Who is responsible for the massacres of civilians in Syria?  Why are these atrocities being committed, and by whom?  Who is producing the huge car bombs that have targeted Syrian military intelligence, and who is providing the anti-government terrorist gangs in Syria with the advanced explosives and weapons?  

The evidence, capability, and motivation all point to Israel being behind the terror atrocities being committed in Syria.

 Some of the weapons being smuggled into Syria from Lebanon were advanced U.S. sniper rifles and machine guns made in Israel.  (Source SANA, June 8, 2012)


Ammunition, detonation devices, and explosives were found along with the Israeli-made weapons.

The authorities seized large amounts of modern and advanced weapons in a car coming from the Lebanese territories towards the Syrian territories at Wadi al-Fatleh area in the village of Ras Maaret Yabroud in Damascus Countryside. The seized weapons included advanced U.S.-made sniper rifles and heavy machineguns, some of them manufactured in Israel, in addition to Israeli-made explosive devices and remotely-controlled detonation devices and French-made LAO rockets. The car also included silencer-equipped sniper rifles, machineguns, RPG launchers, advanced wireless communication devices and a large amount of ammunition of various types including mortar fires.
“Large Amounts of Advanced Weapons Seized in Yabroud, Damascus Countryside”Syrian Arab News Agency, June 8, 2012

Who is behind the "wars of terror" being waged in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen - and now Syria?  How is it that the post-9/11 war policy to wage war across the entire Middle East, a radical Zionist plan to Balkanize the region, caught the top brass at the Pentagon by surprise?  Who actually makes U.S. military policy?  Will we allow our nation(s) to be dragged into even more costly and disastrous wars in the Middle East?


General Wesley Clark on 9-11 and the Zionist plan of Paul Wolfowitz and Richard Perle to conquer the Middle East


Israel has occupied the Golan Heights of Syria since June 1967, taken during a pre-planned war of territorial expansion in which the Israeli air force and navy tried to sink the USS Liberty,killing 34 Americans and wounding 170.  The evidence shows that the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty was meant to sink the ship leaving no survivors.  Understanding the facts behind the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty reveals the true character of the Zionist state and makes clear that Israel is no friend of the American people, and never has been.  As I explain in Chapter III of Solving 9-11"America the Target:  9-11 and Israel's History of False Flag Terrorism", some of the very same people were involved in both the attack on the USS Liberty - and the World Trade Center on 9-11.  This is key to understanding what is happening in the Middle East - and America - today.

In pushing for U.S. military intervention in Syria - arming the insurgents and using U.S. air power to "create safe zones" for anti-regime forces "inside Syria's borders" - The Washington Post invokes "vital U.S. interests" that are somehow imperiled there.

Exactly what these vital interests are is left unexplained...

Before the religious and ethnic conflicts of Europe were sorted out, it took centuries of bloodletting, and our fathers instructed us to stay out of these quarrels that were none of our business.

Syria in 2012 is even less our business.

- “Syria's Insurrection Is Not America's War” by Pat Buchanan, June 5, 2012
http://www.sunshinestatenews.com/story/syrias-insurrection-not-americas-war

THE "WAR ON TERROR" IS A WAR OF TERROR

An independent court or truth commission would have found Ariel Sharon directly responsible for the mass killings at Sabra and Shatila…  In a minimally just world Sharon would be behind bars. Instead, the Israeli political system has brought him back to power to deal once again with the "terrorists." No objections have been voiced in the United States, and the "international community," delighted to see Milosevic in The Hague, has also been silent.  

Piling irony on irony, Sharon has now been unleashed once again by a U.S. administration as part of the "war on terror" – earlier, the Reagan administration, also devoted to fighting "terrorism," had supported Sharon and associates in the 1982 invasion of Lebanon that culminated in the Sabra and Shatila massacre.  Sharon is treated in the West as a respected statesman, even called a "man of peace" by George W. Bush in the wake of Sharon's new war crimes at Jenin, Nablus, Bethlehem, and other West Bank towns. This treatment of Sharon has one great merit: it makes crystal clear that the "war on terror" is a "war of terror."
- Edward S. Herman, “Ariel Sharon: From Sabra and Shatila to Jenin,” Z Magazine, June 2002

The massacre of scores of innocent women and children in Houla, Syria, led to a concerted action by European states to expel the Syrian ambassadors from their capitals.  When Europeans act in concert like this, you know something is up.  You may recall that none of these righteous states expelled the Israeli ambassador or even uttered a word of protest when Israel killed many hundreds of innocent women and children with white phosphorus and other banned weapons in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead in December 2008.  Why are they now so concerned about civilian lives in the Middle East?

The massacre in Houla is clearly an atrocity that is meant to affect public opinion in such a way that European and American populations would support Western intervention in Syria. 

Now, ask yourself, would the government of Syria commit a blatant and meaningless atrocity that would give Western nations a reason to attack Syria?  Is that something any regime would want?  If not the government of Syria, who would possibly want to create a situation in which the government of Syria would be seen as a bloody, tyrannical regime?

If you guessed Israel, you are right.  Israel and Syria have been foes for decades and Israel still occupies part of Syria:  the Golan Heights, the source of most of Israel's fresh water.  Israel would be the first suspect of being the party behind the massacre in Houla.  This would make sense.  Proving that Israel was behind the massacre would be difficult, but it is the same model as the false-flag terrorism of 9-11.  Commit an atrocity and have it blamed on your enemy so that U.S. and other Western forces wage war against the foes of Israel.  This is the realization of the "War on Terror" promoted by Israel's prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu since 1979.

This is a war that is being fought by deception and proxy.  Syria is a key ally of Iran and Russia.  Many of the massive car bombs that were exploded in Syria targeted military and air force intelligence buildings.  Degrading Syrian military intelligence would be advantageous to Israeli military planners as they plan to attack Iran.  Destabilizing Syria would be essential in Israel's war strategy against Iran.  Death squads, like those that carried out the massacres in Sabra and Shatila, and terrorism are used to create atrocities to sway public opinion against the regime, who is duly blamed for every atrocity.  Just like in the former Yugoslavia, which is the model, and the subsequent Balkanization that resulted in a half dozen weak and corrupt ethnic statlets.  This is actually the Zionist plan for the Middle East.

There is a lot of disinformation being served up about the massacre in Houla, and some of it comes from people like Webster Tarpley, who spoke with Iranian Press TV and blamed NATO "death squads" four times for the massacre in the first 30 seconds without providing one scrap of evidence.  Nor does Tarpley address with even one word why NATO would be interested in waging war against Syria.  On the other hand, Tarpley does not even mention Israel once in the 7-minute interview:

To understand why Webster Tarpley always blames NATO, a military coalition of European states, Canada, and the U.S., while protecting Israel, read my article "Webster Tarpley's Disinfo".  Tarpley, it should be noted also blames NATO for the false-flag terror attacks on 9-11, never mentioning the reams of evidence implicating Israeli military intelligence.

Memorial Day Tribute

As I approach the gates of heaven;
St. Peter I will tell;
One more soldier reporting sir;
I've served my time in hell. 
-Mark Anthony Gresswell

Another term for preventive war is aggressive war - starting wars because someday somebody might do something to us. That is not part of the American tradition. 
- Ron Paul


A video of the memories of U.S. soldiers in Iraq and the children they met.  Notice how the U.S. military breaks with custom and displays the American flag backwards.  What is this nonsense?  As every Cub Scout knows, when the American flag is displayed, vertically or horizontally, the field of blue (the union) should always be at the top, to the flag's own right, and to the observer's left.  So, why is the military doing it backwards?  Does the French military reverse the tricolor of France?  Of course not.  What does this say about the U.S. military?  Who are they really serving?
(The anti-war video was made by a supporter of Obama in '08 who must realize by now that Obama is a key player in the 9-11 deception and that the "change" he promised meant nothing.  It should be clear to all that the only truly anti-war candidate in 2012 is Dr. Ron Paul.  This is why the message of Dr. Paul, who is very popular with American voters, is ignored by the controlled media in the United States.)

Dilbert on the Precious Metals of Afghanistan

Are the Anti-Israeli Terror Events in Asia False-Flag Operations?

Updated - February 24, 2012
Added comments from Iranian ambassador to Thailand from Bangkok Post article.

''[Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu began his accusations [against Iran] within hours of the attacks. How did he know, even before any investigations had begun?''

The ambassador also noted the reports about the incompetence of the alleged attackers. ''They were walking around with Iranian money in their pockets and being photographed with women in the bars of Pattaya?'' he asked incredulously. ''This makes no sense.''
- Iranian Ambassador to Thailand Majid Bizmark,
"Don't rush to judgement", Bangkok Post, February 19, 2012

Actually this sound exactly like the false history left behind for the "hijackers" of 9-11, another Israeli false-flag operation.  A false history is laid and the clues are made very obvious, so there is no doubt who is to be blamed.  Ehud Barak, the Israeli defense minister, was the first person to point the finger of blame at Osama Bin Laden on 9-11.  He was in the studio of BBC World television only minutes after the demolition of the World Trade Center.  His message:  The United States must begin the War on Terror and invade Afghanistan.

The recent terror bombings of Israeli diplomatic cars in Georgia and India look very much like Israeli false-flag operations designed to justify Israeli military aggression against Iran.  They are very similar to the shooting of the Israeli diplomat Shlomo Argov in London, which was used to justify Israel's invasion of Lebanon in 1982.  This would certainly not be the first time Israeli terror/intelligence agencies have bombed Israeli targets.  The visits of senior Israeli intelligence officers, including Ehud Barak, to the places where the "bombings" occurred just days before the events suggest these were false-flag operations carried out by the Mossad.

Mossad chief Tamir Pardo visited New Delhi just days before a vehicle belonging to the Israeli embassy was "bombed" in the Indian capital, the Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported on February 16.  On Monday, February 13, the wife of an Israeli diplomat was moderately wounded when a car bomb exploded outside of Israel's embassy in New Delhi. 

A report in the Times of India on February 16 placed Pardo's visit the week before the attack, saying he met with the heads of local intelligence. Pardo reportedly led a delegation of top Mossad officials, who discussed the possibility of Iranian counter attacks against Israeli targets.  The Times of India report also indicated that Israel's deputy envoy to India, Yahel Vilan, and the embassy's security officer, Shahar Gal Nero, sent a letter on February 1 to the New Delhi police warning of the possibility of attacks targeting Israeli citizens.


The article in the Times of India also reveals that India's National Security Guard was not allowed to investigate the "bombed" Israeli embassy car for "diplomatic reasons".  Why would the Israelis not want the Indian counter-terrorism police to investigate the evidence of a bomb attack in New Delhi?  The Times also reported that India has "no proof" to blame Iran.

THE STAGE MANAGER OF FALSE FLAG TERRORISM - An architectural-level terrorist is always on the scene of an Israeli false-flag terror operation to manage the event and pull the strings to make sure the blame falls on the chosen enemy. Defense Minister Ehud Barak had been in Bangkok and was very close to the scene of the bomb blasts that struck Thailand on Tuesday, 14 February 2012. Barak was in Bangkok on Sunday, February 12, two days before the blasts. He then flew to Singapore and was well prepared to see that Iran was blamed: "The attempted terror attack in Thailand proves once again that Iran and its proxies continue to operate in the ways of terror and the latest attacks are an example of that," Barak said.  The Israeli defense minister was in the city-state to attend the Singapore Airshow this week and hold talks with officials, according to a report in the Jerusalem Post.

The capture of three Iranians in Thailand will be seen by many as evidence that Iran is behind the bombings, but it should be remembered that Israeli intelligence is known to operate and fund terror cells within Iran.  The fact that three Iranians have been caught is not evidence that the government of Iran had anything to do with the bombings.  The Iranian government is not looking for a war, but the Israelis are.

I was very glad to see that an American journalist named Geneive Abdo pointed out in an interview on Australia's ABC national radio network the very strong possibility that these recent attacks were Israeli false-flag operations.  It should be noted that the Israeli government is headed by the very same people who are the prime suspects of orchestrating the false-flag terror attacks of 9-11, namely Benjamin Netanyahu and Ehud Barak.  This is their modus operandi.

The following is an extract from Eleanor Hall's interview of February 14, 2012, with Geneive Abdo on "The World Today".

ELEANOR HALL: The Israeli prime minster, Benjamin Netanyahu, lost no time today blaming the Iranians for the attacks on Israeli embassies, overnight.  Iran denies any involvement in the attacks, which in New Delhi seriously injured an Israeli woman who was travelling in an embassy car. Other plots on Israeli embassies were foiled before the bombs could do any damage.

But despite this, security analyst Geneive Abdo says today's tension between Israel and Iran is more dangerous than any escalation she's seen in 30 years. Ms Abdo is an Iran specialist who is the director of the Iran program at the National Security Network in Washington. And when she spoke to me this morning, I asked her who she thought was behind the attacks.

GENEIVE ABDO: I think it's difficult to answer that question. But if you consider all the nuclear scientists that have been assassinated in Iran, I think the Iranians obviously are trying to determine the cause. And they feel that a covert war is being launched against them.

So I think that the Iranians are feeling much more threatened today than they have been in the past.

ELEANOR HALL: Iran's leadership says it's sheer lies that it's behind the attacks and that the Israelis have planted the bombs themselves to discredit Iran?

GENEIVE ABDO: Well I think that's entirely possible. I mean, if you consider what the Israelis did for many years in Lebanon and other parts of the Middle East, that theory is not so farfetched.

ELEANOR HALL: Although there is an argument that the attacks were similar in style to the bomb attacks on the Iranians scientists and that, therefore, that was a message of retaliation to Israel?

GENEIVE ABDO: Well, you know, there are many theories. I mean theory one is that the Iranians did it in retaliation for attacks on their own nuclear scientists. Theory two is that the Israelis have carried out this attack as a pretext to attack Iran. I mean the Israelis are seriously considering now launching a war against Iran. So that also has to be taken as a possible motivation for these assassinations.

ELEANOR HALL: Yes, regardless of who is behind these attacks, will Israel retaliate with force?

GENEIVE ABDO: I think that the Israelis certainly, when they make the political decision, which I don't believe has been made, whether or not to attack Iran that they will use this as evidence and justification.

The Indefinite Detention Bill DOES Apply to American Citizens

Updated December 17, 2011


WILL OBAMA SEND U.S. CITIZENS TO GUANTANAMO?

'It's something so radical that it would have been considered crazy had it been pushed by the Bush administration.'
- Tom Malinowski of Human Rights Watch on detention laws in NDAA 2012

I have never understood how so many Americans accepted the torture of Padilla - an American citizen on U.S. soil, and not even a foreigner held at Guantánamo - without recognizing that, although a Latino Muslim convert was today's "enemy combatant," tomorrow it might be some other demonized American. I was also astonished when no one cared that Padilla's torture was not mentioned in his trial, and he received a sentence of 17 years and four months for little more than a thought crime. 
- Andy Worthington, "It Could Be You: The Sad Story of Jose Padilla, Tortured and Denied Justice"

“1031, the statement of authority to detain, does apply to American citizens and it designates the world as the battlefield, including the homeland.”
- Senator Lindsey O. Graham (R.-SC)


The 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) passed by Congress gives the military the power to detain American citizens in its gulag prisons like Camp Delta in Guantanamo, Cuba.


Jose Padilla, a U.S. citizen, was held in solitary confinement in a military prison in South Carolina for nearly 4 years - without being charged.

IT COULD BE YOU

Jose Padilla, a U.S. citizen from Chicago, was arrested in 2002 at O’Hare International Airport on suspicion of plotting to set off a radioactive “dirty bomb” and held for nearly 4 years - without criminal charges - in solitary confinement in a military prison. Dubbed an "enemy combatant" by George Bush, John Ashcroft, and Michael Chertoff, Padilla was kept in complete isolation for three and half years with prolonged sensory deprivation (seen above). According to a psychiatrist who spent 22 hours with Padilla in 2006, "What happened at the brig was essentially the destruction of a human being’s mind." Although the government had claimed that Padilla was suspected of planning to build and explode a "dirty bomb", he was neither charged nor convicted for having done so.


U.S. District Judge Marcia Cooke

In January 2006 Padilla was transferred to Miami, Florida, to face criminal conspiracy charges. In August 2007 he was found guilty and sentenced by Judge Marcia G. Cooke to 17 years in prison. During the trial, Judge Cooke, who had been appointed to the bench by George W. Bush in 2003, barred any mention of the three and a half years Padilla had been held in a legal black hole, sidestepping the fundamental question of whether the government has the legal authority to detain U.S. citizens without charges. From 1999 to 2002 Cooke had served as Chief Inspector General for the State of Florida under Governor Jeb Bush, where she was responsible for promoting accountability, integrity, efficiency, and ethical behavior in the agencies under Bush's jurisdiction.

A good presentation of the conflicting claims about the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act and the power it gives the military to detain U.S. citizens without due process can be read on the Washington Blog under the title "The Indefinite Detention Bill DOES Apply to American Citizens on U.S. Soil":

DON'T BE FOOLED

The Indefinite Detention Bill DOES Apply to American Citizens

Even at this 11th hour – when all of our liberties and freedom are about to go down the drain – many people still don’t understand that the indefinite detention bill passed by Congress allows indefinite detention of Americans on American soil.


Elements of the law are so legally confusing, as well as being constitutionally questionable, that any detentions are almost certain to be challenged all the way to the supreme court, Chris McGreal writes in the Guardian article "Military given go-ahead to detain US terrorist suspects without trial."

Chicago's Elders of Zion and Obama's War for Profit

Updated October 14, 2011
(New material on the secret visit by Israel's chief of military intelligence to Lester Crown in 2010 urging U.S. action against Iran and Obama's support in Aspen.)

Israeli general Amos Yadlin traveled to Chicago in an effort to enlist [Lester] Crown’s help in convincing the administration to attack Iran.
- "Israel, Big Money and Obama", 20 August 2010

“The demonstrators probably ought to be demonstrating in front of Congress, the White House, and the secretary over at Treasury.”
-
Rep. Spencer Bachus (R., Ala.), Chairman, House Financial Services Committee,
"Rep. Bachus: Wall Street Protesters Should Be Demonstrating in D.C.."
Washington Wire, 6 October 2011


LETTING OFF STEAM OR CHANGING THE REGIME? - The anti-war protest movement has finally gotten on its feet in Washington, D.C., but can the protest movement in America have any meaningful effect on the political system if it does not articulate any specific demands? The mass protests across the Middle East have all had the same clear goal from the beginning - the removal of the ruling regime. What do the protestors in America want? Do they even know what they want?

Because the scale of the war-for-profit scam is so immense, an example comparing what the money wasted on the wars could have bought for the American people is helpful: The U.S. military spends an estimated $20 billion a year just to air-condition its tents and bases in Iraq and Afghanistan. This is equivalent to 20 years of funding for Amtrak, the sorely neglected U.S. passenger rail system.


The U.S. military spends about $20 billion annually to air-condition tents and temporary structures in Iraq and Afghanistan, more than the U.S. spends on its passenger rail system in 20 years.

After three weeks of protests on Wall Street in New York City, on the eve of the 10th anniversary of the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan, thousands of protestors occupied Freedom Square in Washington, D.C. in a mass protest dubbed "Occupy D.C." Signs carried by protestors show that many are outraged by the wasteful and unjustified wars of occupation in Afghanistan and Iraq.


Thousands of protestors massed in Washington, D.C. on October 6...


inspired by the popular uprisings in Egypt and across the Middle East...


and demanding an end to the war policies that have impoverished and crippled America.


Protesting the wasteful wars (currently over $1 trillion), and the corporations who profit from them, is a common theme...


because spending on the wars is responsible for at least one-fifth of the national debt...


which has more than doubled since 9/11. At $1.5 trillion in direct spending, but with an estimated total cost of some $4 trillion, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have caused the U.S. national debt to spike since 2000.


Some protested U.S. war crimes and torture...


while others called for dumping the Zionist "war lobby".

After 10 years of an unjustified war of occupation in Afghanistan, Americans are finally rising up and demonstrating against the Zionist crimocracy and its agenda of war for plunder and profit. For these protests to be effective, however, it is essential that they raise public awareness of who is really responsible for the criminal war policies and the plundering of the U.S. Treasury. This requires pointing out the secretive "Elders of Zion" who are behind Obama and his criminal war policies. It is the people who support the president behind the scenes who dictate the policies he puts into effect.

If the real culprits are not indentified, shamed, and blamed, the protests will fail to bring about any real change for the better. Like any political and anti-war protest movement, there are infiltrators among the protestors, e.g. Zionists, who seek to divert the message, to distract, and radicalize the movement in order to discredit and marginalize it. For these reasons, it is essential that the protestors keep the focus on who is truly responsible for the crimes of 9/11 and the illegal wars that followed in its wake.

OBAMA'S WAR IN AFGHANISTAN

The 10-year-old war in Afghanistan has been dubbed "Obama's War" because, since being elected in November 2008, he has overseen a three-fold increase in the number of soldiers engaged in the war of occupation. But is it really Obama's war if he is only doing what he is told by the people to whom he is obliged and beholden? Blaming the president without understanding who is behind his war policies will not solve the problem.


"OBAMA'S WAR" - The number of U.S. troops in Afghanistan has tripled since November 2008 to the current peak of 98,000. It is not at all certain that the number will shrink in 2012 as indicated in this graphic from the Washington Post.


DESPISED IN AMERICA - President Obama's ratings have plummeted as a result of his support for the Zionist war agenda and the trillion dollar bailout of 2008-2009.


LOVED IN ISRAEL - While Obama gets a positive rating from less than one-third of the American population, he enjoys a favorable rating with 54 percent of the Israeli population. So who is he serving? (Source: Jerusalem Post, 28 September 2011)


THE ELDERS OF ZION AND OBAMA - It is certainly no secret that a secret organization of Zionist Jews was behind making Obama the president of the United States. It was the cover story of The Chicago Jewish News in October 2008.

A recent article in Crain's Chicago Business, entitled "Cracks appear in Obama's Chicago base", reports that his re-election campaign has a hometown problem: the donors and volunteers who supported him in 2008 have lost interest. "The glow of the epochal election of the nation's first African-American president has faded amid a dramatic fall in the president's popularity," Crain's reported.

Obama's re-election campaign will get a "hometown" publicity boost from a $35,800-a-plate fundraiser in October "hosted by Obama's financial inner sanctum: former fundraising chair Penny Pritzker, James Crown, John Rogers Jr. and others," Crain's reported. This cabal of extremely wealthy Zionist Jews is supporting Obama because they have created him and they control him, and with him in power they grow richer as the Zionist war agenda is advanced. It's that simple; it's criminal. This is the Zionist crimocracy that controls the U.S. government.


Penny Pritzker, center, with the Obamas.
Pritzker was finance chair for Obama's 2008 campaign.


Chicago is a Zionist stronghold, where Zionist gangsters have long run the city and the mob. This Zionist bank is at 100 N. LaSalle Street; the offices of Henry Crown and Co. are a couple hundred feet north, at 222 N. LaSalle.


Rahm Emanuel, the son of a terrorist from the Stern Gang and former senior aide to presidents Clinton and Obama, is now mayor of Chicago. Rep. Emanuel praised Lester Crown in a speech in Congress in 2004. It was the least he could do for the man who made him rich. Crown introduced Emanuel to John W. Rowe, the former chief executive of Unicom, who made Emanuel a millionaire in 1999 after he left the Clinton White House, where he had single-handedly pushed the disastrous NAFTA bill through Congress.


While Christian symbols are banned on city property, a huge steel menorah dominates Daley Plaza every December. Just a reminder of who really runs the city.

Obama’s top fundraiser Penny Pritzker's grandfather and the great-grandfather were lawyers for organized crime, according to Jeff Gates' 2010 article "Obama's Inner Eisenhower." The Crown family (formerly Lithuanian Jews named Krinsky) share a similar lineage in Ashkenazi organized crime. The Crown family has long been the major shareholder of General Dynamics, arguably the nation’s largest corporate beneficiary both of the "War on Terror" and taxpayer outlays for Homeland Security. Obama's second-ranked fundraiser was Chicago’s affluent Crown clan whose dominant ownership stake in General Dynamics ensured additional riches both from waging the “War on Terror” and from Homeland Security, Gates notes.


General Dynamics is one of the leading U.S. defense contractors. Most of the company's revenues derive from Pentagon appropriations (in green).

THE ZIONIST CRIMINAL FAMILIES OF CHICAGO

“Every Israeli prime minister, every Israeli president knows the Crown family.”
- Steven Nasatir, President, Jewish United Fund/Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago

The late Sherman Skolnick, a Chicago-based independent investigator, described the Pritzkers and Crowns as interlinked criminal familes in 1995:

The Crowns and the Pritzkers are interlocked criminals. The Crown flagship, set up in 1919, was Material Service Corp. Over the years, they got big-city paving and cement contracts by bribing Chicago city officials! From that, they branched out into being war mongers. The Crowns have been major owners of bloody war-contractor General Dynamics. The Crowns escaped going to prison for bribing Pentagon brass. How? By bribing federal officials!

Once-president of Material Service, Lester Crown escaped jail in 1976 in a concrete industry scandal by bribing federal prosecutors in Chicago who used him only as a government witness. In the past, Lester was a director of the Vatican dope money laundry, Continental Bank.

To try to get the stink off themselves, the Crowns donate part of their loot to Northwestern University, which has a building named after them. They might as well call it "The Al Capone Center".

In the 1940s, Material Service Corp. (MSC) benefited greatly from large war-related contracts, enabling it to acquire coal mines and more limestone quarries, and to become one of Chicago's most prominent builders of commercial property. During WWII, Henry Crown served as the procurement officer for the Western division of the Corps of Engineers. As Time Magazine wrote (in 1952) about 45-year-old Henry Crown's unusual military service, "After a World War II stint as a colonel in charge of buying $1 billion worth of Army supplies, Crown started spreading into other fields." In a stock-for-stock merger in 1959, MSC became part of the General Dynamics Corp. (GD), a leading military contractor. As Sherman Skolnick wrote, "By the 1970s, the Crown family had an 89 percent stake in General Dynamics, the major war-monger, maker of submarines, tanks, and many other weapons."


At age 45, Henry Crown registered to serve in the war on April 27, 1942. He did not sign up to serve the nation, but to profit from the war. Profiting from war is a Crown family tradition.

THE CROWN FAMILY TIES TO THE ISRAELI MILITARY

James Schine Crown (born 1953) from "Obama's financial inner sanctum" is president of Henry Crown and Company, a private investment company. He is also a director of J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., General Dynamics, and Sara Lee. A member of Chicago's Crown family, his father is billionaire Lester Crown, the former chair and leading shareholder of General Dynamics. As Real Aspen reported in "Aspen is Money for Obama" in July 2011, "Barack Obama's reelection campaign is off to a strong start, thanks in no small part to Jim Crown." Crown, managing partner of the Aspen Skiing Company and co-chair of Obama's Illinois fundraising effort in 2008, raised $100,000 in May and June (2011) for Obama.

Lester Crown was one of Barack Obama's earliest and most steadfast supporters. He provided seed money for the Obama campaign, and his son James Crown was the co-chair of Obama's Illinois fundraising effort. In 2007 he and his wife Renee Crown hosted a fundraiser for Obama in which they highlighted that their support for the candidate was predicated on his support of Israel and his willingness to take militarily action against Iran, according to the Powerbase.info article about Lester Crown.


Lester Crown and Renee Crown

Some of the Crown family members work very closely with highest level people from Israeli intelligence. Charles H. Goodman is a good example. Goodman, married to Lester Crown's cousin, Suzanne, has been a financial adviser to the Crown business interests for some 50 years and has been instrumental in managing and expanding Crown corporate assets.


Charles Goodman was Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Jewish Agency for Israel from 1995 to 1999. This is one of the highest Zionist positions of power.

Charles Goodman is a Principal of Henry Crown and Co. and served as Vice President of the company from 1973 to 2002. He has been Vice Chairman of Henry Crown and Company since 2002 and a director of General Dynamics Corp. since 1991. He currently serves on the boards of General Dynamics and ALLTEL. Goodman is also a Director of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), a Trustee of Brandeis University (where he sits on the board with Ronald A. Ratner of Forest City Enterprises), and a member of the Board of Governors of the Jewish Agency for Israel and United Jewish Communities (UJC). Goodman also serves as the Chairman of The Leon Recanati Graduate School of Business Administration in Tel Aviv. (Leon Recanati is a highly-connected Israeli intelligence officer.)

- Lester Crown's connection to Israel (just the tip of the iceberg)

In backing Obama, the Crown family has worked closely with other Chicago-based Elders of Zion, e.g. the Pritzker and Klutznick families. One of Obama's earliest and biggest supporters was Philip Morris Klutznick, the former president of B'nai B'rith International and a business partner of Lester Crown, a devoted Zionist who is also surely a high-ranking member of B'nai B'rith, the secret global organization of Zionist Jewish Freemasons. Members of this core group of Zionists can rightly be called the "Elders of Zion."

THE 9/11 COVER UP AND THE CROWN FAMILY

Lester's son, Arie Steven Crown serves as a director of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) of B'Nai B'rith, the Zionist criminal organization that has long maligned me with slander and which was behind the police assault on me at my home in the Village of Hoffman Estates in August 2006. Lester's son-in-law William C. Kunkler III, husband of Susan Crown, is on the board of directors of the retail giant Sears Holdings Corp., which has its headquarters in Hoffman Estates.


Susan Crown and William Kunkler support candidates from both parties...


and are friends of Paula Zahn and her husband Richard Cohen. Zahn presented the extremely biased CNN "hit piece" about my 9/11 research the day before my trial was to begin in January 2007. She quit CNN and filed for divorce from Richard Cohen later the same year.


Bill Kunkler, Paula Zahn, Richard Cohen, and Susan Crown were close friends when they posed together at the Whitney Museum of American Art's gala in October 2005.

Sears is, by far, the largest corporation in Hoffman Estates having relocated from Sears Tower in Chicago to its new suburban campus after getting a very favorable deal from the Village of Hoffman Estates. The Crown family, with its strong connection to Israel and the Zionist criminal network, was certainly well positioned to use their behind-the-scenes influence on the police department and village board of Hoffman Estates to see that I was attacked and maliciously prosecuted for my research and writing. In 2001, I ran for mayor of Hoffman Estates on an anti-corruption platform, in a suburb of Chicago where corruption runs rampant.

The Crown family supports candidates from both parties, depending on their strategic goal. Susan Crown, for example, who gave at least $12,300 to candidate Obama between 2003 and 2007 (as per OpenSecrets.org) is now supporting the Republican Mitt Romney's bid for the White House. As the Chicago Sun-Times reported on 4 October 2011:

The Mitt man . . . Watch for GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney, who now seems to be the Republican front-runner, head to Chicago Oct. 27 to attend a big-bucks, $25,000-plus-a-ticket fund-raiser tossed by Susan Crown, daughter of billionaire business leader/industrialist Lester Crown, and hubby Bill Kunkler.

THE CROWN INFLUENCE AT NORTHWESTERN

Arie "Steve" Crown was also elected to the Board of Trustees of Northwestern University in 1990 and serves on the Educational Policies and Appointments Committee and the Student Affairs Committee. His father, Lester, is a Life Trustee of Northwestern University where many buildings bear the family's fake name, Crown. The Crown family's immense influence at Northwestern is most likely the real impetus behind the very hastily written paper by Professor Zdenek P. Bazant, who so desperately sought to provide a plausible explanation how burning jet fuel could have brought down the steel-framed Twin Towers.
Bazant's paper, which was later exposed as rubbish, was published just two days after 9/11 and provided much-needed scientific cover for the official version at the beginning, the most critical time of the cover-up.

Zdeněk Pavel Bažant (born in Czechoslovakia 1937) is a professor of Civil Engineering and Materials Science in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Northwestern University's Robert R. McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science. The McCormick school is financially supported by the Crown family. Lester Crown helped raise more than $100 million for the McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science as cochair of the Campaign for Engineering and the Physical Sciences in the 1990s.

Another recipient of financial largesse from the Crown family and a person very much involved in the 9/11 cover-up is William Gene Corley, Senior Vice President of CTLGroup of Skokie (formerly Construction Technology Laboratories, the research and development laboratory for the Portland Cement Association). Gene Corley led the federal investigation into the 9/11 collapses of the World Trade Center’s twin towers. Previously he had conducted the investigation of the 1995 collapse of part of the Murrah Federal Building caused by the Oklahoma City bombing, and also served as expert advisor during the investigation and trial resulting from the 1993 fatal fire at the Branch Davidian complex in Waco, Texas. In 1997, Corley received the "Illinois ACI Henry Crown Award". The Henry Crown Award is funded by Material Service Corporation.

Lester Crown is the son of Chicago financier Henry Crown, a former president, chair, and main shareholder of General Dynamics, and a member of the board of directors of Maytag and a former director of TWA. Among other things he owns family holdings in New York's Rockefeller Center, Hilton Hotels, the Chicago Bulls, and the New York Yankees. He is also the chairman of the Chicago Council on Foreign Relations, director of the Jewish Theological Seminary, director of The Jerusalem Foundation, director of the Weizmann Institute of Science, and member of the International Board of Governors of Tel Aviv University.

Lester Crown has long been involved at the highest level with Zionist organizations, e.g. U.S./Middle East Project, Inc. and The Jerusalem Foundation in which he networks with the political, financial, and military elites of Israel, such as Yosef A. Maiman, the Mossad agent who controls a great deal of the gas resources of Turkmenistan. Building a pipeline to carry the Israeli-owned gas to India is the real long-term goal of the occupation of Afghanistan. It is through such Zionist networks, often disguised as charities, that the high-level planners are able to conspire with little fear that their plans will ever be disclosed.

WAGGING THE DOG ON IRAN

Israeli general Amos Yadlin traveled to Chicago in an effort to enlist [Lester] Crown’s help in convincing the administration to attack Iran.
- "Israel, Big Money and Obama", 20 August 2010

An early and public supporter of Obama’s presidential candidacy, Lester Crown praised Obama as “unyielding in defending Israel’s security.” During the summer of 2010, Amos Yadlin, the chief of Israel's military intelligence (AMAN), visited Crown in Chicago and requested that he put pressure on Obama to take more forceful action against Iran - and to stop pressing Israel on its illegal settlements on Palestinian land.


Major General Amos Yadlin, the chief of Israeli military intelligence, paid a secret visit to Chicago in July 2010 to meet Lester Crown to ask him "to communicate Israel’s existential worries directly to President Obama."

Crown told Atlantic Magazine in September 2010 that Yadlin discussed with him the “Iranian clock”—the time remaining before Iran reached nuclear capability—and that he agreed with Yadlin that the United States must stop Iran before it goes nuclear. “I share with the Israelis the feeling that we certainly have the military capability and that we have to have the will to use it. The rise of Iran is not in the best interest of the U.S.

“I support the president,” Crown said. “But I wish [administration officials] were a little more outgoing in the way they have talked. I would feel more comfortable if I knew that they had the will to use military force, as a last resort. You cannot threaten someone as a bluff. There has to be a will to do it.”

LESTER CROWN AND GENERAL DYNAMICS


A military contractor, General Dynamics and the Crown family have profited greatly from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Crown family has long been seen as one of the most important U.S.-based supporters of the Israeli military. They are reported to be one of the American Zionist families that created Israel Corp. and "major players" in helping finance Israel’s secret nuclear arms development program:

In 1968, Israeli Finance Minister Pinchas Sapir, the creator of Israel's "offshore" banking system, sponsored a "millionaires conference" in Jerusalem. All in attendence were in one way or another connected to the Israeli intelligence apparatus responsible for the weapons and money that helped create Israel in 1948. Among them were: Louis Boyar and Sam Rothberg - Henry Crown - Max Fisher - Ray Wolfe - Shaul Eisenberg - Raphael Recanati - Philip Klutznik.

Out of this conference, the Israel Corporation was created, an official government corporation. It was later exposed for illegal laundering of funds into the Banque du Credit International, set up by Tibor Rosenbaum and Pinchas Sapir.

In 1993, when General Dynamics was controlled by Lester Crown, he sold the unit of the company in Fort Worth that makes electronics for the F-16 to an Israeli military company called Elbit. The General Dynamics unit in Fort Worth became Elbit Systems of America (EFW), a wholly owned subsidiary of Israeli defense contractor Elbit Systems Ltd. A $35 million division when General Dynamics sold it in 1993, it expects to report revenue of $1 billion for 2011. "Elbit's U.S. growth is a result of the [Israeli] parent company's commitment to gaining a sizable share of U.S. defense spending, the Star Telegram of Fort Worth reported in June 2011. "And it's a result of a plan mapped out in the mid-1990s." The Israeli owners of Elbit Systems of America have clearly profited very nicely from the extremely costly U.S. wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

General Dynamics and Elbit Systems of America formed a joint venture in 2009 called UAS Dynamics LLC, to provide unmanned aerial systems to the Defense Department and other potential U.S. government customers. The company is based in Fort Mill, South Carolina.

Anders Breivik and the Zionist "War on Terror"

Updated August 1, 2011


How did a young man raised in Oslo become a cold-blooded killer obsessed with a fear of Islam?


The atrocity committed by Anders Breivik is a manifestation of the hatred and fear of Islam promoted by the Zionists behind the massive fraud known as the "War on Terror". 

Breivik is an avid Zionist whose motives were predicated on Islamophobia. His ideological influences are libertarian and “neo-conservative.” He was playing his part, albeit as a loose cannon, in the “clash of civilizations."
- Dr. K. R. Bolton, "Anders Breivik: Neo-Conned", 29 July 2011

The frightful atrocity of terrorism and mass murder committed by Anders Breivik in Norway has deeply shocked Scandinavians.  I have spent much of the past week reading and thinking about the atrocities and the young man from Oslo who carried out these heinous crimes.  The best analysis I have read thus far is Dr. K.R. Bolton's scholarly article entitled "Anders Breivik:  Neo-Conned" published online in Foreign Policy Journal.  The fact that Breivik's twisted worldview is in complete agreement with the extremist Zionism of Israel's Likud party is ignored in the mainstream media reports. 

The Norwegian and Swedish papers have reported that the primary focus of the investigation has been to determine if other people were involved in the shooting of the young people on the island near Oslo.  There were several eyewitness reports of a second shooter, a man with dark hair and about 180 cm in height.  The way that victims at the edge of the water appear to have fallen back, away from the water, seems to indicate they were shot from the water.  One survivor from the island has reported that the shooter used a boat during the killing spree.  The young man in the following video named Morten (Mårten) describes (in Norwegian) the shooter changing out of his police uniform and going around the island in a boat shooting at people on the island.  

In the video below Morten says the following (translated by Torstein Viddal) in response to the question whether he saw more than one person shooting on the island:

It may be that people have mistakenly thought there were two people, because he was dressed as a policeman in the beginning, but at one point he is said to have taken off the police uniform and jumped into a small boat.  And then he is said to have gone around the island for one round.  Because during the shooting there was one pretty long gap between shots.  But I think I heard a boat, and it fits pretty well with the story I heard from the survivors from the cliffs.  So he went around in civilian clothes, I guess with lots of weapons in the boat, and he would wave to the cliffs to see if there were people hiding there, and when they waved back at him...he would come closer and pretend to help them, but then he just assassinated all of them instead.

There are clearly many unanswered questions about how this mass murder was carried out, and exactly who all was involved with Anders Breivik in the planning and execution of the atrocities in Norway.

When I first saw the photos of Breivik posing with a gun in a diver's wet suit I thought that he must have a military background.  Norway does have hundreds of elite troops and snipers fighting with the "Coalition of the Killing" and it seemed likely that Breivik had served with Norwegian troops in Afghanistan.  It turns out that Breivik did not serve in Afghanistan but he is, as Dr. K.R. Bolton writes, very much a product of the 'clash of civilizations':

Breivik is a product of the “clash of civilizations,” formulated by neo-con ideologues and used by American and Zionist interests to philosophically justify the so-called “war on terrorism.” He is the product of a legacy that is anything but “conservative” in the Western historical sense: he sees himself as an underground resistance fighter against the Islamic occupation of Europe, who, in other circumstances, would be honored as a war hero. He sees Islamic laws and customs taking the place of Western laws.

Breivik grew up on the west side of Oslo, where I spent a couple winters in the 1970s.  Breivik was born in February 1979.  Norway was then a mono-ethnic society, unlike Britain, France, and Germany which have had significant Muslim minority populations for many decades.  Immigration into Norway from non-European nations increased greatly in the 1980s.  Today, Norway is no longer a mono-ethnic society.  The new immigrants are found mostly  in the larger towns, particularly in Oslo.

It is understandable that some Norwegians feel threatened by the sudden influx of new immigrants.  Norway has long been a rather isolated country and has received very few immigrants during its modern history.  A very large number of Norwegians and Swedes emigrated to America and Canada in the 19th Century leaving Scandinavia with a significantly reduced population.  I have met intelligent Norwegians who have openly expressed a deep fear, like Breivik, that Muslims are seeking to take over Norway and Europe.  When I listen to them it seems to me that they have swallowed the rhetoric of the "clash of civilizations" -- hook, line, and sinker.  Breivik seems to be a person who believes every word of the anti-Muslim propaganda pushed by Hollywood and the Zionist-controlled media.  In Breivik's case, he committed an atrocity based on his belief.  He probably also believes that Muslim terrorists from Afghanistan destroyed the World Trade Center.  There were several Americans who went on shooting rampages after 9/11 believing that Muslims were responsible for the terror attacks.

It should be noted that Norway has 500 combat troops in Afghanistan.  Denmark has 730.  Sweden has 530.  I have written critically about the Norwegian and Scandinavian combat troops fighting in the fraudulent "War on Terror" in Afghanistan, where Norwegian snipers compared the thrill of killing to sex.  How does a nation like Norway, I ask, which suffered greatly under Nazi occupation, explain and justify to its peace-loving population why their supposedly peaceful nation is participating in an illegal occupation that is engaged in fighting and killing the people of Afghanistan?


A Norwegian sniper in Afghanistan

This is where contrived provocations like the anti-Muslim cartoons printed in Danish newspapers come in very handy.  In the wake of this blatant provocation the Danish people were forced to make a false choice whether their so-called freedom of speech means the Zionist-controlled media has the right to offend other religious communities.  As Daniel Pipes, the Zionist Neo-con framed it:

Will the West stand up for its customs and mores, including freedom of speech, or will Muslims impose their way of life on the West? Ultimately, there is no compromise. Westerners will either retain their civilization, including the right to insult and blaspheme, or not.

The Muslims, who were deeply angered by the offensive images, were portrayed as trying to impose their values on the West.  The "freedom of speech" in Scandinavia does not apply to all religious groups equally.  It should be noted that the media outlets that published the anti-Muslim cartoons would not, for example, publish articles or cartoons that challenge Zionist claims about "the Holocaust".  The real purpose of publishing the offensive cartoons was to create a false conflict by increasing social tensions between Scandinavians and Muslims.  The Breivik atrocity is a frightful manifestation of this artificially created "clash of civilizations", a false construct that has been imposed on the people of Norway and the West by ruthless Neo-cons to justify the Zionist "War on Terror".

"I Shall Not Hate" & Guantanamo Prisoner No. 746

February 26, 2011

Outlook, a program on BBC World Service radio, has had two remarkable segments in the past few days, which I recommend. 


Saad Iqbal Madni, Guantanamo Prisoner No. 746

Yesterday, there was a 17-minute interview with Saad Iqbal Madni, an Islamic scholar from Pakistan who was held for 5 years in Guantanamo.  The program is entitled Guantanamo Prisoner No. 746.  The first part of the program was with an Australian man who survived the hostage taking of the Moscow theatre.

Saad Iqbal Madni is an Islamic scholar from Pakistan who spent five years in Guantanamo Bay.  He was released in 2008 - he says without charge - but has been under house arrest in Lahore since then.  Under anti-terrorism legislation, all former suspects returning to Pakistan are automatically placed under restrictions when they return.  Saad's ordeal began a few months after 9/11, during a visit to Indonesia.  He says he was bundled onto a plane in Jakarta in January 2002, and then flown to Egypt.  From there he was transferred to Bagram Airbase in Afghanistan, and moved again in March 2003 to Guantanamo Bay.  He claims he was humiliated, tortured, and abused every step of the way.

This is an interview that should be listened to by anyone concerned about the serious crimes that have been carried out at the Gulag of Guantanamo, all in the name of the people of the United States.  The clickable URL of the program is here:

"I SHALL NOT HATE"


Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish of Gaza lost 3 daughters during Israel's aggression against the people of Gaza.  An Israeli tank fired on his daughters' bedroom.  His 27-minute interview on today's BBC radio program Outlook is worth listening to.

I also recommend listening to the profoundly moving 27-minute BBC Outlook radio interview with the wise Palestinian doctor, Izzeldin Abuelaish.  Dr. Abuelaish described his extraordinary personal journey to Outlook's Lucy Ash.

The show can be heard here:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/programmes/2011/02/110224_outlook_izzeldin_abuelaish_gaza_doctor.shtml

Abuelaish has vowed not to hate despite suffering appalling losses at the hands of others.

The doctor from Gaza has always used medicine to bridge the divide between Israelis and Palestinians, and continues to do so despite losing three daughters under Israeli tank fire.


Dr. Abuelaish lost three daughters when an Israeli tank fired on his house.

An internationally trained fertility expert, he helped childless couples in both Gaza and Israel to have babies.

During the Second Intifada in Gaza, he was the only Palestinian doctor working in one of Israel's busiest maternity units, and each week he would cross the checkpoints that separated his home in the Gaza Strip from Israel.

A few people from his community thought he was a traitor, though most admired his professionalism, his humanity and his determination to bridge the increasingly bitter Israeli-Palestinian divide.

But the conflict came to his own doorstep on 16 January 2009 when Israeli tank shells killed three of his daughters and a niece.

Astonishingly, however, Izzeldin did not become embittered, nor did he seek revenge.

Instead, he convinced himself that his girls' deaths must not be in vain and slowly turned his family tragedy into a force for peace - so much so that Izzeldin has won many humanitarian awards and has even been nominated for the Nobel Peace prize.

The Liars Who Took Us to War

February 16, 2011


February 2003 - Colin Powell waves a fake vial of anthrax as he tells the United Nations a whole host of lies, which the Bush administration knew (or should have known) were nothing but complete fabrications, in order to take the U.S. to war against Iraq.  The main target of this criminal deception was the citizenry of the United States, which would be asked to fight and fund a pre-planned war of aggression.  Eight years later, hundreds of thousands of Americans and Iraqis have been killed or maimed and untold billions of dollars wasted in an utterly criminal war.  At what point will those responsible for egregious war crimes be held accountable for their actions?

We have first-hand descriptions of biological weapons factories on wheels.  The source was an eyewitness — an Iraqi chemical engineer who supervised one of these facilities. He was present during biological agent production runs. He was also at the site when an accident occurred in 1998. Twelve technicians died.
- U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell telling the lies of Al-Janabi to the United Nations, 5 February 2003

The Iraqi defector who fabricated tales of mobile bioweapons trucks and clandestine factories has admitted for the first time that he lied and then watched as his lies were used to justify the war.

Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi, codenamed "Curveball" by German and American intelligence officials who dealt with his claims, told the Guardian, "They gave me this chance. I had the chance to fabricate something to topple the regime." 


Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi, a.k.a. "Curveball" lives in Karlsruhe, Germany.

As U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell gathered his notes in front of the United Nations security council, al-Janabi knew what Powell would say.  Al-Janabi was, after all, Powell's main source, a man his German handlers had feted as a new "Deep throat" — an agent so pivotal that he could bring down a government.

As Curveball watched Powell make the U.S. case to invade Iraq, he was hiding an admission that he has not made until now: that nearly every word he had told his interrogators from Germany's secret service, the BND, was a lie.

CURVEBALL'S LIES EXPOSED IN 2000

The Guardian reports that Janabi claimed he was first exposed as a liar as early as mid-2000, when the BND (German intelligence agency) travelled to a Gulf city, believed to be Dubai, to speak with his former boss at the Military Industries Commission in Iraq, Dr. Bassil Latif.

Even now, Curveball seems bemused that his lies got as far as they did. He says he thought the game was up by the end of 2000. By that point, the BND had flown to Dubai to interview his former boss at Iraq's military industrial complex, Dr. Basil Latif, who had told them that his former underling was a liar.

Several British intelligence officers were present at the meeting with Latif. Their German counterparts left Dubai seeing their prized source in a new light.  According to them, Curveball had claimed that Latif's son, who was then at school in Britain, was a procurer of WMD. That information was easily proven wrong by the British spooks.

The BND then returned to Germany and sent an officer to confront their source. "He says 'there (are) no trucks'; and I say, ok, when (Dr. Basil says) there are no trucks then (there are none)," Curveball recalled in broken English.  "I did not speak to them again until (the) end of May 2002."

Al-Janabi's confession confirms that the 2003 invasion of Iraq was based on a whole series of lies that were known to be fabrications.  These lies were pushed by the Bush administration and the Zionist-controlled press to start an illegal war of aggression that had been planned long in advance.  This is exactly like the first war against Iraq in 1991 started by George H.W. Bush, which was foisted on the American people based on a similar pack of blatant lies about alleged Iraqi atrocities told to Congress by a young lady who turned out to be the daughter of the Kuwaiti ambassador.

The war of aggression in Afghanistan, now in its tenth year, has also been based on a pack of lies about 9/11.  The fact that these extremely costly and disastrous wars have all been sold to the public on lies, lies which were known to be fabrications at the time, should be ample cause to hold those who conspired to wage these wars of aggression accountable for crimes against the peace, the most serious of war crimes.

OBAMA DID NOT STOP TORTURE

The reports from the Iraq war show that, despite Obama's public commitment to eschew torture, U.S. forces turned detainees over to Iraqi forces even after signs of abuse. Documents also show that U.S. interrogators continued to question Iraqi detainees, some of whom were still recovering from injuries or whose wounds were still visible after being held by Iraqi security forces.
- "WikiLeaks docs raise questions of Obama policies", by Raphael G. Satter and Paisley Dodds, Associated Press, October 25, 2010

On October 22, WikiLeaks released the largest classified military leak in history. The 391,832 reports ('The Iraq War Logs'), document the war and occupation in Iraq, from 1st January 2004 to 31st December 2009...They detail events as seen and heard by the US military troops on the ground in Iraq and are the first real glimpse into the secret history of the war that the United States government has been privy to throughout.

The reports detail 109,032 deaths in Iraq...The majority of the deaths (66,000, over 60%) of these are civilian deaths. That is 31 civilians dying every day during the six year period. For comparison, the 'Afghan War Diaries', previously released by WikiLeaks, covering the same period, detail the deaths of some 20,000 people. Iraq during the same period, was five times as lethal with equivalent population size.

Camp Bucca, Iraq - This photo from May 2008 shows a barbed wire corridor inside the U.S.  "detention center" near the Kuwait-Iraq border. According to U.S. figures, the camp held 19,070 detainees at the time.  The camp is named after Ronald Bucca, a NYC Fire Marshal who died on 9/11, although neither Iraq nor the camp detainees had anything to do with the false-flag terrorism of 9/11.   Naming the camp after a victim of 9/11 is part of the deception of the U.S. military.


Camp Bucca is a modern day concentration camp in an illegal war of aggression.  Will the people behind this criminal war face a Nuremberg Trial?

Note on usage:

concentration camp - a type of prison, often consisting of a number of buildings inside a fence, where political prisoners are kept in extremely bad conditions
Source - Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary, 7th Edition, Oxford University Press, 2005

Gen. David H. Petraeus described Camp Bucca as he found it in 2007: 

"When I took command of Multinational Force-Iraq in February 2007, we still had Camp Bucca with 17,000 detainees at that time and it grew larger," said Army Gen. David H. Petraeus, commander, International Security Assistance Force and commander, U.S. Forces Afghanistan. "We still had all of the detainees in huge enclosures. It was just fenced-in enclosures of about 800 to 900 detainees per enclosure. Obviously, we have come a long way since then."

Source: "Petraeus Discusses Future of Afghan Detainees" by U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer Maria Yager, Parwan Province, Afghanistan, September 30, 2010

A concentration camp is defined by Merriam Webster as a camp where persons (as prisoners of war, political prisoners, or refugees) are detained or confined.  The Holocaust Encyclopedia has the following definition, which correctly describes U.S. camps like Camp Bucca:

The term concentration camp refers to a camp in which people are detained or confined, usually under harsh conditions and without regard to legal norms of arrest and imprisonment that are acceptable in a constitutional democracy. In Nazi Germany between 1933 and 1945, concentration camps (Konzentrationslager; KL or KZ) were an integral feature of the regime.

What does the Death of Holbrooke Mean for Af-Pak War?

December 16, 2010

The sudden death of Richard Holbrooke, President Obama's special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan, is like the head falling right off the policy.  Is Holbrooke's death an omen that indicates the end of the failed and criminal war policies in the region?  We can always hope.


Richard Holbrooke, looking like a Mafia boss, in Herat in 2009

Frank J. Ruggiero, Holbrooke's deputy, has been named as his replacement.  Very little information is available on Ruggiero's background, which raises questions about why.  Is he related to the infamous Ruggiero family gangsters of New York City?  It wouldn't suprise me if he was.  This is, after all, a criminal war based on the false-flag terror atrocity of 9/11.


Richard Holbrooke, head U.S. policy boss in the Af-Pak war, has been replaced by...


his deputy Frank J. Ruggiero...


seen here in the theatre of the war.

Frank Ruggiero is a 1982 graduate of Ursuline High School from Youngstown, Ohio.  He is married to Yong J. Lee and lives in Gaithersburg, Maryland. He was born in 1963, the youngest child of Frank and Barbara (Palermo) Ruggiero of Youngstown and Austintown, Ohio.

Ruggiero previously was the top civilian official in southern Afghanistan and helped manage the plan to increase the number of non-military experts providing reconstruction assistance to Afghan leaders.

Ruggiero has worked in various positions in the U.S. State Department and U.S. Department of Commerce.  He was named Holbrooke's top deputy in July, a position that included helping Holbrooke develop the United States policy for Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Ruggiero has worked for the State Department since 2003 and worked for the Department of Commerce for several years before that. It was during a course on international relations at Youngstown State University when he decided he wanted to pursue it as a career, he said. He transferred to The Ohio State University, graduating in 1987.
 
Ruggiero earned a master's degree in Middle Eastern affairs from American University in 1989 and has completed course work toward a Ph.D. in U.S. foreign policy in Asia at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.  He has served in several positions in the departments of State and Commerce and has played a leading role in the State Department on security strategy in the Persian Gulf and on political-military issues in the Middle East.
 
He said he worked for former U.S. Rep. James Traficant during the Persian Gulf War and later moved to California to work for the Department of Justice.

BROKEN PROMISES - Vietnam War veteran Dave Hancock protests at the White House on December 16.  More than 60 percent of the American people are opposed to the Afghan War, according to a recent Washington Post poll.  The Obama administration, elected on the promise to withdraw U.S. troops by July 2011, now says the U.S. will maintain combat troops in Afghanistan until December 2014.  On December 17, the House passed a defense authorization bill (by a 341-48 vote) that authorizes the Pentagon to spend nearly $160 billion on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan in 2011 without major restrictions on the conduct of operations.  Why are U.S. (and NATO) troops being kept in Afghanistan for another 4 years?  What's really going on there?

As I have reported since shortly after 9/11, the real reason for the U.S. invasion and occupation of Afghanistan is to build and secure a 1,080-mile long gas pipeline designed to carry trillions of dollars of Israeli-owned gas from Turkmenistan to Pakistan and India.  In a 2009 article entitled "Why Afghanistan" I wrote about the role of Israeli intelligence in the TAPI gas pipeline project and its connection to 9/11:

Following the break-up of the Soviet Union, Israeli agents sought to gain control of the strategic assets of the newly independent Soviet republics. In mineral-rich Turkmenistan, a Mossad agent named Yosef A. Maiman was very successful in gaining control of the republic's immense resources of natural gas.
 
Yosef Maiman, born in Germany in 1946, grew up in Peru and studied in the United States before becoming an Israeli citizen in 1971. As an agent of Israeli intelligence, Maiman heads a network of Mossad-controlled companies that serve Israeli interests. As the chief executive of the Merhav Group, Maiman has controlled the development of Turmenistan's gas resources. Maiman's key colleagues at Merhav are the former head of the Mossad, Shabtai Shavit, and Nimrod Novik, chief adviser to Shimon Peres, the current president of Israel.

Maiman was described as "a leading miner" of Central Asian gas fields by the Jerusalem Post in 2004. Given their control of the immense gas resources of Turkmenistan, Maiman, Merhav, and the Mossad would all profit if and when the U.S.-led coalition were able to "pacify" and control Afghanistan so that the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) gas pipeline could be built allowing the gas of Turkmenistan to be sold to energy-hungry India. The TAPI pipeline project would bring billions of dollars into Mossad coffers every year. This is the real reason for the war in Afghanistan and why the Zionist-controlled Obama administration has increased the war effort in Central Asia. It has nothing to do with terrorism or 9-11.

The false-flag terror attacks of 9/11 were part of a strategic Israeli operation to bring the U.S. military into Afghanistan on a long-term mission on behalf of Israel’s Turkmen gas enterprise.  The Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) pipeline is the real reason that U.S. soldiers are fighting and dying in the southwestern Afghan provinces of Helmand and Kandahar.  9/11 was just the cover story for this pre-planned war of aggression - and it is nothing but a complete hoax.


The TAPI pipeline is planned to be built along the Herat-Kandahar highway across western and southern Afghanistan. 


FATALITIES BY PROVINCE - The route of the proposed TAPI gas pipeline is exactly where most U.S. troops have died in Afghanistan (the blood red provinces of Helmand and Kandahar) .  Americans, Canadians, and Europeans are fighting and dying in Afghanistan (and Pakistan) for Israeli profits.  Source: Operation Enduring Freedom, iCasualties.org


According to a recent audit, the gas reserves of the fields (largely controlled by Mossad’s Yosef Maiman and the Merhav Group) stand at between 4 and 14 trillion cubic metres. Under the pipeline framework agreement, Pakistan and India will each receive 1,325 million cubic feet per day (mmcfd) of gas, while Afghanistan will receive 500 mmcfd. According to the deal, the pipeline will have a diameter of 56 inches and will stretch over a distance of 1,640 kilometres from Turkmenistan to Fazilka in India. The pipeline is expected to commence gas flow by 2015. “The Afghanistan government has guaranteed that it will deploy at least 5,000 troops for the protection of the pipeline within its territory,” said Naveed Qamar, Pakistan’s Federal Minister for Petroleum and Natural Resources.

On December 11, a preliminary agreement was signed in Turkmenistan’s capital, Ashgabat, by representatives of the four countries to proceed with plans for the American and Israeli-backed pipeline. Here are the basic points about the TAPI pipeline:
 
Construction of pipeline will be completed by 2014 (note this is the new end-date given for the U.S. military mission in Afghanistan, but don't believe it)

1,680 kilometer gas pipeline will supply 3.2 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day (much of this gas will come from Israeli/Mossad-owned gas fields in Turkmenistan, meaning immense profits for the Mossadniks who pulled of 9/11)

BALKANIZATION OF AF-PAK REGION
 

U.S. GANGSTER DIPLOMACY - U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage threatened to bomb Pakistan "back to the stone age" unless it joined the fight against al-Qaeda.  General Musharraf said that Armitage delivered the threat to Pakistan's intelligence director.  "The intelligence director told me that Mr Armitage said, 'Be prepared to be bombed. Be prepared to go back to the Stone Age'," Pakistan's President Pervez Musharraf said.  Armitage is most likely the same diplomat who threatened the Afghan government two months before 9/11 - "You will either accept our carpet of gold or we will carpet-bomb you."

The C.I.A.'s armchair warriors bomb targets in Pakistan on a daily basis and the United States has 3,000 Special Forces in Pakistan, according to Zainab Cheema’s recent article entitled "Return of Musharraf And Pakistan’s Balkanization" about what the Zionist "War on Terror" and Mossad's TAPI project really mean for Pakistan:
 
Pakistan has been turned into a war-on-terror parking lot: 3000 American Special Forces units operate in Pakistan at the present. Pakistan’s politicos have always shown remarkable generosity in passing down the costs of their decision-making to the people. Guantanamo is a thriving industry in Pakistan and the foremost field of Pakistan-US collaboration. Pakistan’s police, army and frontier corps are part of the American security system in Pakistan...

Pakistan’s balkanization is just as much about keeping rivals out as it is about securing the best perch in the playground. The Iran-Pakistan Friendship pipeline (IP) in the works (formerly the Iran-Pakistan-India pipeline before the US weaned away India with its nuclear fuel deal) is planning its route through Balochistan. While Pakistan can occasionally make such inconvenient deals with a neighbor that Israel and the US are determined to exterminate, the groomed Balochi tribes would follow more the acceptable Karzai pattern of subservient obedience. Meanwhile, terrorizing the PK is laying the ground for the US’s own pipeline project snaking its way through Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI).

A Real Email about IEDs

October 9, 2010

Paramount among the responsibilities of a free press is the duty to prevent any part of the government from deceiving the people and sending them off to distant lands to die of foreign fevers and foreign shot and shell.
- Hugo Black

I perused the global edition of the New York Times on October 7 to see how the most widely read American newspaper would mark the ninth anniversary of the beginning of the U.S.-led invasion and occupation of Afghanistan. Oddly, there was no mention of the ninth anniversary of the war in Afghanistan. The only thing I found about Afghanistan was at the top of the editorial page, a piece entitled "An e-mail from the Afghan war" written by Lt. Col. Ted Adams of the U.S. Marine Corps, commanding officer of the 9th Engineer Support Battalion.

Adams editorial is about IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices), which he begins by saying "are the bane of my existence."

They drive us all crazy, but I take it personal. It is hard to imagine how much we could get done if we didn’t have to put the effort into protecting ourselves from these “improvised explosive devices” and avoiding them. We’ve been hit by more than 10 IEDs in the last couple of weeks. During my last convoy we hit one on the way, and one on the way back. I don’t like those averages.

This comment raises the fundamental question, what is it that Adams' battalion has been sent to Afghanistan to "get done"?  Why are American forces building roads in Afghanistan in the first place?  What is the goal of the infrastructure project in Afghanistan that requires the presence of thousands of American soldiers and billions of U.S. dollars?

In the puff piece about the 9-year-old war by Adams, IEDs do not cause serious injury.  In fact, the subject of injury appears only twice in the article:

During the recent convoy, one IED in particular was pretty powerful and ripped through the armor within the wheel-well and floorboards of the truck. This resulted in the most serious injury any of our Marines have suffered to date; an open fracture of the lower leg. We called in a helicopter MEDEVAC and continued with the mission.

That Marine will likely make a full recovery. He’ll have some extra hardware in his leg that may set off metal detectors, but he’ll be there to see his kids grow up. Most of us consider that a happy ending. Day in and day out our Marines climb back into their trucks without a complaint and quietly accomplish the mission.

Later, he says that most of the injuries from IEDs have not been at all serious:

We all have thoughts that our truck might be the next one to strike an IED, but we also try to maintain some confidence that we’ll be protected if it happens. The equipment does pretty well. So far, most personnel involved in IEDs have had minor injuries, bruised legs, ringing in the ears and/or headaches. I pray that’s as bad as it gets.


Illinois is among the red states which have more than 1,100 injured veterans from the war in Iraq.  This data from iCasualties does not reflect the hundreds of thousands of disabled vets from the Gulf War Era, which began in 1991.  The real human cost of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq is much worse than most Americans realize.

I got an e-mail the other day from the brother of a young man who was hit by an IED in Iraq.  The story of this young man from my hometown of Schaumburg, Illinois, gives a much more realistic view of IEDs and the real human cost of the war in Afghanistan and Iraq:

Date: Tuesday, October 5, 2010

Hi Mr. Bollyn,

Thank you for the quick response. Hope I wasn't rambling in my e-mail, I tend to do a brain dump when I'm tired and intrigued at the same time. I guess I'll tell you a little about my brother John. We grew up with all the GI Joe stuff, you know guns and planes and the like. I think all of that sank in on John, and along with his very strong and (at that time) misguided patriotism it was probably inevitable that he would join the service. He joined the Marines because he wanted to be the best (and because he was pissed about 9/11), and he was.  He qualified as a top tier marksman, and became a Forward Observer (artillery spotter essentially). After SOI he was deployed to Iraq (oddly enough he was deployed on 9/11/06), to a small town in Al Anbar named Baghdadi.

The day of his injury goes something like this. The day began with their regular officer staying behind, and an NCO from another company (or platoon?) leading the patrol. Adding to that, their corpsman (Navy medic embedded with all Marine units) was not on the patrol that day. They were kicking down doors, the usual, when the sergeant saw some "insurgent" graffiti. Now normally John would be operating as an FO, but today he had the radio and he was the only one with a camera. So the sergeant called him up to take a picture and BAM!

They found out later that the device was a 155mm howitzer shell with an improvised cellular-activated fuse. Luckily only the fuse and primer went off, severing John's rifle in half and removing his left index and most of his middle finger (later removed at Bethesda) as well as taking a softball sized chunk out of his left knee and leaving scars and shrapnel all over his legs. Now with no corpsmen, a Samoan fella (I forget his name) in his unit ran under fire, applied a tourniquet, and carried him back to safety.

Once airlifted to Balad, John went through 7 units of blood and after a day or so was transferred to Landstuhl. Once at Landstuhl, he called home to tell us (I believe someone from his unit called before he did), and my Mom called me at work to tell me to come home, she wouldn't say why. About halfway home I realized what had happened and then everything is kind of hazy.

Obviously being raised in Schaumburg in the 90s didn't prepare me or my family for this event.  I was pissed at everyone but especially Muslims. I can remember some hate after 9/11, but nothing like this, now it was personal. I had the reason, the right (or so I thought), and the will to be against all things Muslim. (I have since dropped any and all hate, as I think that love and tolerance are the only ways to defeat evil. i.e. evil begets evil).

John was in Bethesda Naval Hospital for a month and at Northwest Community Hospital downtown for a month before coming home. While at Bethesda he developed a serious colon infection (on his 20th birthday no less) and the only reason he isn't crapping in a bag is because of my mom. She's a hospice nurse, and she was at John's side every single day he was in the hospital. When he developed the infection the doctors immediately wanted to take out his colon, but my mother raised hell and told them what to do and how to do it, and saved his colon and maybe his life. Also while in the Navy's care, the doctors put him on all kinds of anti-depressants (Celebrex, Cymbalta, and others) that they said had shown some promise of helping nerve pain. This is where our journey into the (for lack of a better word) New World Order began.

Since John had nothing but time because he collects disability, he started reading about all the major topics that one gets into when one is first learning about the REAL world. He stopped taking the anti-depressants (we later learned that hospitals are paid to put people on these fluoride-based medications by Big Pharma), and started listening to Alex Jones, Steve Quayle, David Icke (I don't necessarily believe in Reptilian overlords), G. Edward Griffin, etc.

I on the other hand would have none of it. I knew the way the world worked, and I was content. We were kicking the Arabs' asses, with the prospect of more to come, and I was satisfied that that was the answer. Life went like this for a few years, and then in September 2008, I went to New Zealand to live with friends of friends and see another part of the world. Obviously there was a lot going on at that time with the markets and the crash, and I was privy to many new viewpoints down there. I also saw what it's like when people have no rights, and the government maintains that rights come from them instead of the Creator (whatever that may be).

On my return to the states (a bit earlier than expected as it is hard to get a job down there) I told John that I was ready to listen. So I dove head first into the Fed / Trilateral Comission / CFR / Zionist / Rothschild / Bilderberg / NWO / Protocols of the Elders of Zion rabbit hole and couldn't believe all that I had never been told, or told incorrectly.  I called into Alex Jones, sent e-mails to the Federal Reserve Board informing them of my disdain for them and their ilk, and John even sent an e-mail to Lt. Gen Honore (another story for another day) which resulted in an immediately fried $3000 computer. Not to mention town halls, tea parties, We Are Change meet-ups, and the rest of it.

After 2 years or so of Alex Jones, I started to go deeper. After meeting Mr. Katz at the vitamin shop, and talking about Khazars and Zionists and Bill Cooper, I began to see another angle unfolding.  Now, my best friend growing up was Jewish, and I was very apprehensive at first to acknowledge any Israeli involvement. But as I kept reading I realized that Zionist and Jewish are not mutually exclusive. The more I read the more I realized that the history of the Jewish faith is complicated and hazy.

Books like The Invention of the Jewish People, The Thirteenth Tribe, and the rest blew my mind. The idea that Zionists helped the Nazis and denied visas and entry to lower-class Jews to sanctuary, and that the English arm of the Warburg (or maybe it was Rothschild) family funded the Bolshevik revolution and ensuing mass murder, made my soul cringe. The idea that the major events of the 19th and 20th (and probably the rest) Centuries were far different than I was taught, and that most, if not all, of the genocide in the world was avoidable, was too much. So instead of going the Alex Jones route and yelling at everyone, I decided to apply an objective and shrewd analysis to the world of shadow politics. I want to see results, not gain notoriety.

Then last night I was doing the random 9/11 video watch just to refresh my vigor and dedication, when I came across your [CNN] interview. I remember watching that interview when it aired, I don't remember what I thought at the time, but I remember it. Last night I thought wow, all right, there's someone who's expressing the kind of unbiased intellectual observation necessary to get to the bottom of 9/11 and all its repercussions (I especially liked the smile when she implied that you were anti-Semitic for criticizing non-Semitic Zionists, and her implication that only Jews are Semitic).

When I saw that you lived in Schaumburg, well I thought that was more than a coincidence…and I had to send you an e-mail. I guess the first thing I would like to know is what you think the best place to start is with regards to understanding the true history of Jews/Zionism/Middle East in general. I am well versed in the American aspects of the NWO, but the European and Middle Eastern facts tend to be difficult to find and quite thin on hard info.  I would really like to know more about the Khazars, and how to identify the true descendants of Shem (it is Shem, right?).

Thanks,
George

p.s.  John is fine now, with the exception of the missing fingers and foot drop from nerve damage. He lives over by Flyers' stadium and is totally independent and going to massage therapy school. The whole experience opened our eyes. Between the B.S. from the VA, the state of the country, the census GPS-ing his house (because he's a gun owner and veteran, so according to the ADL [Anti-Defamation League of the B'nai B'rith] and "Homeland Security" - he's a terrorist), and all the other things too numerous to mention, and getting off of fluoride, I believe those who work in the shadows have created someone with a big floodlight of truth.

U.S. Wounded - The Hidden Toll of Obama's Surge

November 26, 2010

OBAMA'S CASUALTIES

More than seventy-one percent of all U.S. wounded (9,256) from the 9-year-old war in Afghanistan have occurred in the 22 months since President Barack Obama became Commander in Chief on January 20, 2009.  Some 6,566 Americans have been wounded since Obama began his ill-advised surge in February 2009.  Is this the change Americans wanted when they voted for Barack Obama?


U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Cole Reece provides care to U.S. Army Sgt. Jonathan Duralde of Bravo Troop 1-71 CAV after he was injured by an IED blast June 25, 2010 near Kandahar, Afghanistan.  Nearly 600 Americans have been wounded in Afghanistan every month since June 2010.


“You can’t tell, can you? About my leg?”  Jonathan Duralde, 25, from Mobile, Alabama, lost the lower part of his left leg.  He had enlisted in the U.S. Army right out of high school, did two tours of duty in Iraq, and was then sent to Afghanistan.  “I’m just a guy doing a job,” Duralde told the press.  Don't young Americans deserve better jobs than this?

As a presidential candidate, Barack Obama called for a greater focus on the war in Afghanistan and a troop "surge". During his first month in office Obama authorized the deployment of 17,000 additional troops on February 17, 2009.  By December 2009, Obama had called for 30,000 more troops to be sent to Afghanistan.  More than 6,500 Americans have been severely wounded as a result of Obama's surge in this most ill-advised and criminal of wars.  Why are Americans fighting and dying in Afghanistan? 


During his first month in office President Obama sent 17,000 more U.S. troops to Afghanistan.

THE REAL COST IN U.S. WOUNDED

As a frequent visitor to iCasualties.org, I noticed that tallies of U.S. wounded had not been updated since July 2010 – until recently. The website's data is based on monthly reports from the Department of Defense. Now that the data on U.S. wounded from August through November 2010 has been added, I can see why the White House held these shocking numbers back.  Nearly 600 U.S. servicemen, about 20 per day on average, have been wounded every month since May 2010.  This is the painful reality of the fraudulent war in Afghanistan that the Obama administration has been hiding. 


Most of the U.S. fatalities have occurred in an arc across four southwestern provinces of Afghanistan:  Herat, Farah, Helmand, and Kandahar.  The reason why so much blood has been spilled in these four provinces (pink and red sections) becomes quite clear if one examines the map of the proposed TAPI gas pipeline.  (Source - iCasualties.org)


The TAPI (Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India) gas pipeline is planned to follow the road from Herat through Kandahar and on to Pakistan and India.  This pipeline is designed to transport Israeli Mossad-owned gas from Turkmenistan to India and China.  This is the real reason young Americans (and Europeans) are fighting and dying in Afghanistan - to build and protect a pipeline carrying Israeli-owned gas.  (See "Dying in Vain - Why Afghanistan")

In 2008, there were 793 U.S. wounded in Afghanistan. During 2009, the first year of Obama’s presidency, the number of wounded shot up to 2,144, a nearly three-fold increase. Thus far in 2010, the first full year of Obama’s surge policy in action, more than 4,481 Americans have been wounded in Afghanistan -- more than twice the casualties from 2009 and about six times as many as 2008. 

If we still had good photo journalism covering the war from the front lines, like LIFE magazine provided during the Vietnam War in the 1960s and 70s, Americans would be more aware of the real suffering caused by the 9-year-old criminal war of aggression in Afghanistan.  A population that is painfully aware of the human toll is much more likely to take effective action to end the war.

LIFE, 11 February 1966
LIFE magazine brought the painful reality of the Vietnam War home to millions of Americans every week.  Henri Huet's historic photograph was the cover photo for February 11, 1966.  Why don't we have this kind of photo journalism anymore?  How has the media gone from covering the war to supporting the war?

It was 1965,
Over Chu Lai in a free fall dive
In a dawn patrol to cover the dead zone ground
She tiptoed through the land mines
All along the enemy lines
But she never saw the one that took her down
She captured the bloody pearls of war so well
That war was bound to steal the end of Dickey Chapelle

Facing Reality in Afghanistan

Updated October 4, 2010

"NATO is here and they say they are fighting terrorism, and this is the tenth year and there is no result yet...Our sons cannot go to school because of bombs and suicide attacks."
- Hamid Karzai, President of Afghanistan, 28 September 2010

"The Taliban are winning, we are losing."
- Robert Blackwill, former U.S. National Security Adviser

"Nato urged to allow partition of Afghanistan",
Daily Telegraph, September 13, 2010

"But the Western coalition is in a quagmire in the south and the Taliban are winning in the north, consolidating their grip in the east, and slowly encircling Kabul...Worse, the lack of local reform and a toothless anti-corruption policy leaves the coalition fighting for a corrupt government with no popular support."
- Gilles Dorronsoro, "Face Reality:  Talk to the Taliban",
International Herald Tribune, September 15, 2010


Robert Blackwill, deputy National Security Adviser under Condolezza Rice in 2003 to 2004, said that there had been a decade of 'innumerable errors' in the Western approach to Afghanistan and  called for drastic changes during a speech at the International Institute of Strategic Studies think tank in London on September 13, 2010.


U.S. casualties:  5,700 killed, 40,000 wounded
(official numbers, the real toll is actually much higher)

Nearly twice as many Americans have died fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan than were lost in the 9/11 attacks. The total cost of these long wars will be in the trillions of dollars...The entire national security system has suffered as a result of the wrong-headed actions of the Bush administration in Iraq and the Obama administration in Afghanistan.

The statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception.
- Mark Twain, “The Mysterious Stranger” (1910)


Massive terror bombings such as this one in Quetta, Pakistan on September 3 are the evil fruit of the Zionist war strategy known as the War of Terror.  The remote-control bomb in Quetta killed at least 55 Muslims who were taking part in a local Al Quds (Jerusalem) Day demonstration to express solidarity with Palestinians living under Israel's brutal occupation.  What Muslim group would attack Muslims marching in an Al Quds Day event?  Like so many other terror bombings in the Zionist War of Terror, this was most likely another Mossad false-flag terror operation.

October 7, 2010, marked the beginning of the tenth year of the War on Terror, a fraudulent and disguised Zionist war of conquest that should more rightly be called the Israeli "War of Terror." This is the more accurate label for the wars being waged in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq.  These wars are all part of an open-ended criminal strategy that was initiated by the false-flag terror of 9/11.  The commission of the criminal War of Terror employs two basic tools:  terror bombings and the threat of more terrorism.  As we see in the current news reports, the two usually go hand in hand.  The recent C.I.A. terror bombings using drones in Pakistan are said to have targeted terrorists plotting to commit terror bombings in Europe.

The false-flag terrorism of 9/11 is clearly a political crime that is not meant to be solved.  In the immediate aftermath of the terror atrocity a baseless and unproven explanation blaming Osama Bin Laden and Arab Muslims was pushed by senior Israeli officials, most notably Ehud Barak, Benjamin Netanyahu, and Shabtai Shavit, a former director of Israel's Mossad.  The former prime minister and defense chief Ehud Barak, for example, blamed Bin Laden by name and called for the U.S. to invade Afghanistan in an interview with the BBC World News in London only minutes after the explosive demolition of the Twin Towers.

The Zionist-controlled media and administration of U.S. President George W. Bush eagerly promoted the unproven Israeli theory that Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaida had carried out the terror attacks.  The destruction of the Twin Towers and the thousands of people trapped within them was then exploited as the casus belli to justify the invasion of Afghanistan. Rather than calling for an investigation, the administration said there was a war to be fought.  Patriotic Americans accepted the government explanation of 9/11 and lined up to join the "War on Terror".  To question the veracity of the government version was to risk being called a "conspiracy theorist", or worse. 

The War of Terror is a refinement of the basic Israeli concept known as T.N.T. or "Terror Neged Terror", Hebrew for
"Terror Against Terror", the Zionist tactic of waging war through terrorism used by such arch-terrorists as Menachem Begin, Yitzchak Shamir, and Shimon Peres.  This strategy allows the occupier, the Israelis or in this case the U.S., to label anyone who resists their illegal occupation as "terrorists".  This label is important because it effectively delegitimizes the resistance while legitimizing the occupier's use of overwhelming military force against the population under occupation.  The strategy of waging war through terrorism can be applied anywhere through the use of false-flag terror attacks in which the aggressor actually commits the terror acts in order for the blame to be assigned to those against whom it plans to take military action.  The terror attacks of 9/11 were false-flag terror on a grand scale, designed to enrage the American people against Islamic groups in Afghanistan and swing global public opinion behind a pre-planned war of aggression.  Occupation and plunder are the real reasons for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.  Both nations are extremely rich in mineral resources and strategically located for the planned exploitation of the mineral resources of their neighbors, such as Turkmenistan.

The War of Terror is the war strategy being applied in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq.  The goal of this strategy is the dismemberment of these states (i.e. Balkanization) in order to facilitate the occupation and plundering of their mineral assets.  In the case of Afghanistan the production of opium and heroin are of key importance to the criminal network behind the war policy.  The long-planned War of Terror did not begin with George W. Bush and Tony Blair in 2001 but has roots that go much deeper and further back in time.  This long-term goal is being carried out by the Rothschilds and their Zionist agents and goes back to the 1970s. 

The use of terrorism as a tactic in a war of conquest was developed by Israeli terrorists such as Menachem Begin and Yitzchak Shamir of the Irgun in Palestine during the 1940s.  The sons and daughters of the Irgun dominate the Israeli and U.S. governments today.  Obama's departing Chief of Staff, for example, Rahm Emanuel, is the son of a Zionist terrorist, a fact overlooked by the controlled media.  How can one make sense of the administration's preoccupation with fighting the "War on Terror" while its chief of staff is the son of an Israeli terrorist?  Rahm Emanuel is a key person in the Zionist network that carried out 9/11.  He held a similar position during the Clinton administration when the stage was being set for the terror crime that would kick-start the War of Terror.  Emanuel knows very well who carried out 9/11, and it certainly was not Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaida.


Rahm Emanuel, an Israeli citizen and son of a Zionist terrorist, was a senior advisor to Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.  His gesture during the Obama inauguration, as Obama's Chief of Staff, reveals his attitude toward American values.

Q- Is it true that Rahm Emanuel, for six years having been on and off Clinton White House Senior Advisor, has been, in effect, Deputy Director for North America, of the Mossad, Israel's spy agency? And was Rahm an instrumental part of Marc Rich's dirty, bloody business for the American C.I.A.?

Marc Rich the commodity bandit and "spook" was so interwoven with the White House of George Bush The Elder and later, Bill Clinton, you could not hardly tell whether the White House dirty tricks department was in Washington or Zug, Switzerland, one of Rich's outposts...

The Israeli aristocracy -- not the common people -- have been complicit in these treasonous dealings brokered by Marc Rich as a high level operative of the Israeli secret political police, the Mossad. The Israeli elite, with vast inside knowledge from being middlemen in this dirty business, were able for 8 years to blackmail huge sums out of the Reagan White House, and for 4 years out of the George Herbert Walker Bush Administration.
- Sherman H. Skolnick


Marcel David Reich, aka Marc Rich, was on the FBI Most Wanted list for 15 years until Bill Clinton's last minute presidential pardon.


Rich is the head of an international network of metal and mining companies...


and receives honors from the Israeli schools he supports such as Tel Aviv University and the Mossad's very own college, the IDC in Herzliya, where Rich funds a school of finance named after him.


Rich, the "King of Oil" and son of a Polish Jew, sees eye to eye with the Polish-born Israeli president and archterrorist Shimon Peres.  Polish-born Abe Foxman, head of the ADL of B'nai B'rith, met with Rich and thought that Rich was "a landsman", a Yiddish-speaking Jew from the same place as himself.

During the 1980s, when George H.W. Bush was the vice president and Menachem Begin was prime minister in Israel, the plans for 9/11 were already being developed.  The international criminal network behind 9/11 has its roots in the Mossad/C.I.A. smuggling operations of drugs, weapons, and oil that were carried out by the Mossad during the Iran Contra scheme.  This network involves people like Marc Rich, Shaul Eisenberg, and their Rothschild financiers.  This is the reason the Mossad and Israeli politicians used every card they had to obtain the last minute pardon from President Clinton for the F.B.I.'s most wanted criminal, Marc Rich.  If Marc Rich were to be arrested and interrogated he could expose the extent of Mossad crimes that reach to the top of the Israeli and U.S. political establishments. 

To understand who is really running the War of Terror, one need look no further than Richard Holbrooke, the
Obama administration's special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan.  Holbrooke is a partner of Henry Kissinger, the Rothschild's highest level agent in the United States along with Rahm Emanuel.  The expansion of the war in Afghanistan into Pakistan resembles nothing more than Kissinger's expansion of the Vietnam war into Cambodia and Laos.


Richard Holbrooke is Obama's main man in Afghanistan and Pakistan...


and Holbrooke works closely with Henry Kissinger, the veteran Rothschild agent in the United States...


whose manners reflect his barbarous and criminal behavior.

Norwegian and U.S. Soldiers Kill for Thrills in Afghanistan

September 30, 2010

Search for the truth is the noblest occupation of man; its publication is a duty.
- Madame de Stael

Norwegians and Scandinavians are shocked and appalled to read that Norwegian soldiers actually enjoy killing Afghan resistance fighters, who are fighting the foreign occupation of their country.  The Norwegian magazine Alfa coming out this week carries an article with interviews with Norwegian snipers who brag about killing Afghans from more than 2,500 meters.  The Norwegian report mirrors a grisly ABC News report of U.S. troops "Killing for Sport" innocent Afghan civilians and cutting off parts of their bodies.  These reports reveal the false morality of the criminal war in Afghanistan.

OUR MISSION IS "TO KILL"

To kill Afghans, the soldiers say, is better than having sex.  "To fight and kill is worth three months without sex.  Maybe it sounds idiotic but it is better than sex," one Norwegian sniper said. "When you are on the field it is you or the enemy.  And when you see the 'red mist' (blood spurt from sniper victim)...it is indescribable.  It's why we are here."

"Sometimes we get lucky," one of the snipers told Alfa.  "I hit a Taliban in the neck from 2,770 meters on February 2.  That was really great."


Norwegian snipers in Afghanistan

Alfa magazine appears to be of that peculiar genre of magazines for men that mixes sex with war and violence.  Although the issue of Alfa has not yet hit the newstands the story has already caused an uproar in Norway, a land that suffered a brutal occupation under the Nazi regime during the Second World War.   This presents the fundamental ethical problem that I posed to the Norwegian government several years ago when it became clear to the public that Norwegian soldiers were not promoting democracy or building schools in Afghanistan - they were simply killing people.


"I have commanded my forces that our mission is to kill, and we have great success with it...I don't reflect any further about taking peoples' lives," company chief Kristian Simonsen in Meymaneh, near the border with Turkmenistan, told VG magazine. 

The Norwegian mission that Simonsen commands is called the Provincial Reconstruction Team (PRT) but what are they really constructing?  What is the real purpose for the 500 Norwegian soldiers who are on a mission to kill Afghans in the province of Afghanistan that borders Turkmenistan?  Could it be that greedy Norwegian oil oligarchs (read Statoil) are invested in the criminal scheme to occupy Afghanistan in order to build the TAPI gas pipeline from Turkmenistan to India - for Israel's Mossad gangsters?  (See my articles below.)


Norwegian soldiers training at the PRT base Meymaneh.  How can their stated "mission to kill" be called "reconstruction"?  Why is Norway so deeply involved in this massive crime that is directly linked to the hoax of 9/11?

"A GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR"


“The positive achievement of PRT Meymaneh is also a result of the Scandinavian way of life and its culture. A great sense of humor, combined with a warm heart, an open mind, tolerance and consideration toward the Afghan population are the two special brands of this PRT.”
- German Brig. Gen. Frank Leidenberger on the Norwegian-led Provincial Reconstruction Team in Meymaneh, June 2010

How can any Christian nation that suffered a brutal occupation in its modern history take part in the illegal occupation of Afghanistan?  How could Norwegians be part of the "coalition of the killing"?  The Norwegian government did not deign to respond to my question, although I am only trying to help them out of a very bad situation.  Of the 4 Scandinavian and Baltic nations I asked about being involved in combat in Afghanistan, only Finland responded with a protest saying that ISAF soldiers were not involved in combat operations - a complete lie.  When queried about the news reports, the Finnish spokesman refused to discuss the subject any further.


Norway's Minister of Defense Grete Faremo (left) with military chief Per Sunde.  Faremo said that the soldiers' statements were unacceptable.  “I strongly oppose the soldiers' comments," Faremo said.  "Our soldiers receive great recognition for their mission. But if the types of attitudes that have come forth in VG exist, then they are best left in the dark."

No, Ms Faremo, the soldiers' comments should not be "left in the dark".  Their statements simply reflect the brutal reality of the murderous mission they were sent on by Norwegian government officials like you.  How can killing be anything but murder in such a criminal war?  What is truly unacceptable is Norway's participation in the pre-planned war of aggression in Afghanistan. 

The story that first made it quite clear that Norwegian soldiers were fighting in Afghanistan concerned German helicopter pilots who went back to base in the evening rather than continue fighting Afghans.  The Norwegians complained that they could have gone on killing if the Germans had not returned to base at dusk.


Magnus Rønningen, editor of ALFA, said he believes the real scandal is how the military has handled the matter.  “It is not the soldiers’ comments that are the most shocking here, but the military’s way of publicly stabbing its own soldiers in the back. It is for me, at best, extremely bad leadership,” he said.

Author's Note - As an American with Norwegian ancestors I have a great deal of respect for Norway and Norwegian culture.  My criticism of Norway's current participation in the war in Afghanistan should not be misconstrued as anti-Norwegian.


Rev. Thorval H. Larsen, the author's great-grandfather, was born near Kongsberg in Telemark, Norway in 1856, the year before his family emigrated to the United States.  Thorval became a highly educated multi-lingual Lutheran minister in what is today southwestern North Dakota.

Afghanistan - Obama's War for Israel

Updated July 6, 2010 


Bruce Riedel is Obama's chief adviser on the war in Afghanistan and the father of the ill-advised "surge", which calls for tens of thousands more U.S. troops to be sent to the failing campaign.  Riedel is employed in a Mossad-funded think tank run by an Israeli friend of Ehud Barak and Shimon Peres.  Is this the "change" Americans really wanted?

Bruce O. Riedel headed the White House Afghan war strategy team that advised President Obama to send 50,000 more U.S. troops in early 2009. With the chaos and bloodshed in Afghanistan increasing every month, Riedel is often interviewed these days- but never identified as a hired gun of the Israeli operative Haim (Chaim) Saban, who happens to be a close friend and partner-in-crime of Ehud Barak, the Israeli defense chief. Recognizing Obama's Zionist war planners is essential to understanding what the war in Afghanistan is really all about.


Bruce Riedel at Israel's Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv.  Riedel, a C.I.A. veteran, works for Haim Saban, a Zionist zealot and Ehud Barak's friend and partner-in-crime.


Haim Saban (right) with Shimon Peres, Ted Koppel, and Bill Clinton at the Saban Forum in Jerusalem 2006.  Saban has given more than $10 million to the Clintons...


...which buys a lot of clout with Obama's secretary of state, a middle class girl from Park Ridge, Illinois.


Saban (left) with Condoleezza Rice, Tony Blair, and Ehud Olmert.  Saban is Mossad's bagman for the biggest war criminals of our time.  A little Mossad money goes a long way when placed in the right hands.  Ehud Olmert, the Israeli Likudnik prime minister, was on a secret mission in New York City on 9-11.  Why has his New York visit been kept secret by the media in the United States? 


Shimon Peres, the President of Israel and father of its illegal nuclear arsenal, has been a close friend of Saban’s for more than twenty years.  As Saban has said, “I’m a one-issue guy, and my issue is Israel.”


Rupert Murdoch, Chairman and CEO of News Corporation and FOX News is a close friend and long-time business partner of Haim Saban.  Murdoch and Saban are seen here at the annual Allen & Co.'s media summit in Sun Valley, Idaho, on July 8, 2009.  Murdoch helped make Saban a billionaire in 2001, when they sold a joint venture, Fox Family Worldwide, to Michael Eisner, of Disney.  In a typical Mossad money arrangement, Saban made one and a half billion dollars, the biggest cash transaction by an individual in the history of Hollywood.  Through the use of a fraudulent tax shelter, Saban paid no ($0) tax on his gain of $1.5 billion.  The Fox Family channel was clearly not worth anywhere near that much money.  

Saban had enlisted Stanley P. Gold, a Zionist director of Disney and founder/chairman of it's Shamrock Israel Growth Fund, to pressure Eisner to acquire the network. Eisner agreed to pay $5.3 billion (including more than two billion dollars of debt) for the company—about a billion dollars more than News Corp. executives had believed it would bring. Gold was also chairman of Koor Industries and Tadiran Communications, two Israeli companies closely tied to Israeli military intelligence.  Why would a Disney director linked to Israeli intelligence want to buy a failing network for a highly inflated price?  This is a commonly used Israeli method to enrich its operatives so they can Influence the public and buy the politicians (like the Clintons) to serve Israel.  The Clintons service to a foreign state (Israel) in exchange for millions of dollars is treasonous.

 
Rupert Murdoch, an Australian Jewish agent of Israel, is very close to Shimon Peres.  Murdoch's FOX News tried to smear Christopher Bollyn as an anti-Semite.  Murdoch's son James, heir apparent of the Murdoch's News Corporation media empire, is married to Eric Hufschmid's sister.  Hufschmid has carried on the attack against Bollyn since 2007.  What a small world!


Kathryn Hufschmid with the Zionist-controlled mayor of Chicago, Richard Daley.  Kathryn works with the Clinton Foundation, which is sponsored by Haim Saban.


The Governor of California, the Austrian bodybuilder-cum-movie star Arnold Schwarzenegger, attended the Saban Forum in Jerusalem in November 2009.  The mystery of what happened to the economy of the Golden State becomes less mysterious when one considers Schwarzenegger's close ties to Zionist criminals.
 
While there are 150 current news articles in which Bruce Riedel is quoted on the war in Afghanistan or the alleged Russian spies of New York, not one of them informs the reader that Riedel works for the Israeli Mossadnik of Hollywood, Haim Saban.  Such glaring omissions are purely intentional.

ISRAEL'S "GREAT GATSBY"

Saban, an Israeli citizen, has given more money, more than $13 million, than any other American to support candidates, political-action committees, and campaign committees since 1999, according to the Federal Election Commission.  In 2006,  the Israeli newspaper Haaretz dubbed him “a kind of Great Gatsby. Our Great Gatsby.”

A recent article, "The Influencer" in the New Yorker, explains Saban's (i.e. Mossad's) strategy in crafting U.S. foreign policy to benefit Ehud Barak and his gang of Zionist terrorists:

Saban's greatest concern, he says, is to protect Israel. At a conference in Israel, Saban described his formula. His “three ways to be influential in American politics,” he said, were: make donations to political parties, establish think tanks, and control media outlets. In 2002, he contributed seven million dollars toward the cost of a new building for the Democratic National Committee—one of the largest known donations ever made to an American political party. That year, he also founded the Saban Center for Middle East Policy at the Brookings Institution…By far his most important relationship is with Bill and Hillary Clinton. In 2002, Saban donated five million dollars to Bill Clinton’s Presidential library, and he has given more than five million dollars to the Clinton Foundation.


Saban has a reputation as a brutal businessman.

A classic Hollywood story retold in Portfolio involves Gene Simmons of Kiss:

In the late ’90s, as co-owner of the Fox Family Channel, Saban was developing shows for children. Simmons, the fire-breathing, blood-spitting frontman of a rock band in costumes and face paint, pitched Saban an idea for a new Saturday-morning cartoon: Kiss meets X-Men, the Marvel comics superhero team. Saban liked the concept well enough to convene a meeting with Avi Arad, then C.E.O. of Marvel’s toy division.

At the appointed time, Saban, Arad, and Simmons sat down. The meeting was going well, and the three began to haggle over numbers. Then Saban turned to Arad and, referring to Simmons, confided in Hebrew, “Now we gut him like a fish.” Without missing a beat, Simmons—who, unbeknownst to Saban, was born Chaim Witz in Haifa, Israel—replied in Hebrew, “You ass­hole. I’m one of you.”


Israeli Rock - Gene Simmons (aka Chaim Witz) of Kiss

In January 2001, a law suit was filed in Israel's High Court calling for criminal charges to be brought against Prime Minister Ehud Barak and Los Angeles television producer Chaim Saban. The court papers allege that on March 25, 1999, a month and half before Israel's national elections, Saban hosted a campaign fund-raiser in his Beverly Hills home for then prime minister candidate Barak in violation of Israeli election laws. The 35 to 40 guests who attended the parlor meeting were each asked to donate $10,000 to benefit the Barak campaign.


Haim Saban's friend Ehud Barak is the main suspect of being the mastermind of 9-11 and the explosive demolition of the Twin Towers.

As reported in the Israeli press of 2001:

Saban promised to match each donation to Barak, dollar for dollar. On the evening of the fund-raiser Barak flew into L.A. and spoke before the parlor meeting held in Saban's home and contributions were solicited…

One guest at the fund raising event, businessman Daniel Dilbort, the president of L.A.'s Nu Image productions, admitted to Israel's leading daily Yediot Aharanot, that the participants understood that they were donating to Barak's campaign: "We knew we were donating to Barak's election campaign, but we did not know where the money was going exactly," Dilbort says he wrote a check for $10,000 that evening.

AFGHANISTAN CHAOS

June 2010 was the deadliest month of the nine-year Afghanistan war, with more than 102 NATO troops killed.  Of those killed in June, at least 54 were U.S. soldiers.  The United States has lost 1,066 soldiers in Afghanistan in a military campaign that has gone on longer than World War II, but Obama is sending tens of thousands more young Americans to "surge" in a disastrous war that no one seems to understand.  Exposing the Zionists behind Obama's war policy is essential to understanding why we are engaged in this most ill-advised and criminal of wars.

NORWEGIANS KILLED

Norwegian military officials released the names of the four soldiers killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan on Sunday, June 27. Defense Minister Grete Faremo, her voice cracking with emotion, said she will be among those bringing their bodies home. “We have lost four of our best soldiers,” Faremo said.

Christian Lian, age 31, from Kristiansand in southern Norway

“Norway is a small country. We have no one to lose.” Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg said Monday that the four soldiers “were among the finest we have,” and that their deaths are “a gruesome reminder” of how dangerous their military assignment was.  Norway has 470 troops in Afghanistan. 

But why are Norwegian troops in Afghanistan in the first place?  Why are tens of thousands of young Europeans, Canadians, Australians, and Americans slogging away in the Hindu Kush?  What is the real mission of this international military campaign that has dragged on for nearly 9 years?  What deals have been struck, what promises made to those who have sent their fighting men to the bloody quagmire in Afghanistan?

THINKING CLEARLY ABOUT AFGHANISTAN

To understand why thousands of young Americans and Europeans are fighting and dying in Afghanistan we need to be very clear about the real reasons for this nine-year-old military invasion and occupation. Some straight talk and Socratic dialectic will help us to determine what this war is really about – and what it isn't.

President Obama adopted the seven-year-old war (in 2008) and the Bush administration's reasoning for it, claiming that the United States is occupying Afghanistan because of 9-11. The terrorists behind 9-11, according to the Obama and Bush administrations, were members of the Al Qaida organization headed by Osama Bin Laden. This Islamic terrorist organization was based in Afghanistan under the Taliban regime and presented a threat to the whole world, which is why an international coalition was put together to fight against it. 

The claim that Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaida were behind 9-11, however, has been proven false. While the U.S. government never actually proved that these parties were involved in the terror attacks, the discovery of large amounts of super-thermite in the dust of the World Trade Center has now exposed this claim to be nothing but a complete fabrication. The government and media version of 9-11 contradicts both the scientific evidence and the laws of physics.  It is impossible for both to be valid.  The laws of physics and the evidence are true; the government version is clearly false.  Al Qaida neither produced nor applied the extremely explosive super-thermite that pulverized the Twin Towers on 9-11. The role of Osama Bin Laden was simply that of the scapegoat in a false-flag operation; neither he nor the Taliban had anything to do with the destruction of the Twin Towers.


The Twin Towers were pulverized with a highly energetic form of super-thermite.  Al Qaida and the Taliban of Afghanistan clearly had nothing to do with the murderous demolition of the World Trade Center.

If the people who run the C.I.A. and the U.S. government know about the discovery of super-thermite and explosives in the World Trade Center, why do they continue to wage war in Afghanistan? 

Well, we know Afghanistan's production of opium has increased greatly under the U.S.-led occupation. It was recently reported that use of opiate drugs, including heroin and opium, has doubled in Afghanistan since 2005, with nearly 3 percent of the adult population now addicted. Prior to the U.S. invasion in 2001, the Taliban regime had virtually eradicated the production of opium. Increased production of opium is clearly one of the results of the U.S. occupation of Afghanistan, but is that the only reason?

Afghanistan is also one of the crown jewels of Asia, extremely well endowed with rare minerals and gems, and situated between Russia, Turkmenistan, China, Pakistan, Iran, and the West. To control Afghanistan is to control one of the wealthiest and most important strategic corridors in the world. This is why the Soviet Union tried to occupy Afghanistan in the 1980s and why the U.S.-led coalition has tried to do the same since 2001.  Besides its enormous wealth of rare and strategic minerals, Afghanistan is located between the Israeli-owned gas fields of Turkmenistan and the energy-starved markets of India and China.  If Afghanistan were brought under U.S. and Zionist control, the planned TAPI (Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India) gas pipeline through Kandahar would bring billions of dollars into Mossad's coffers every year.  This is the real reason why Ehud Barak and Haim Saban are pushing for the conquest of Afghanistan.  These people will use every trick in the book to see this pipeline built, but how many people must die for Israeli profits?

Who are the people behind the crafting of the war policy in Afghanistan?

We can easily identify two groups who are pushing the war policy in Afghanistan: the C.I.A. and the Israelis. The C.I.A. is clearly waging its own war in Afghanistan and Pakistan with its use of drone-launched missiles while the Israelis have called for the U.S. invasion of the country from the beginning. Ehud Barak, the current Israeli defense minister, was actually the first person to call for the invasion of Afghanistan, which he did on 9-11, only minutes after the demolition of the World Trade Center, on the BBC.

OBAMA'S WAR FOR ISRAEL

While a great deal has been written recently about the war in Afghanistan following the resignation of General Stanley A. McChrystal, I have yet to see one article that correctly identifies the real impetus behind the war effort. Most Americans believe, as President Obama says, that the war is being waged because the Taliban regime supported the terrorists who carried out 9-11. This is utterly false, as the discovery of super-thermite amply proves. The false-flag terror of 9-11, the war in Afghanistan, and the larger "War on Terror" are all Zionist-constructed frauds that are protected and promoted by the Zionist-controlled White House, Congress, and media.

To understand that the "War on Terror" (with its invasion and occupation of Afghanistan) is a Zionist construct, it is helpful to review the Israeli role in its development and realization:

·PREPARING THE GROUND - The idea of the "War on Terror" and its conceptual framework was first articulated and promoted by Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel's Yonatan Institute of Terrorism in the early 1980s in a series of speeches, seminars, articles, and books. The basic idea is that Israel's survival required that the militaries of the United States and Europe be stationed in the Middle East to defeat and occupy the states that support terrorism – on a long-term basis. Terrorism, or a state that supports terrorism, as defined by the Israeli doctrine, is any act (or state) of resistance against Israeli hegemony and aggression.  The "War on Terror" doctrine was taught to highest-level U.S. leaders, such as George H.W. Bush, who attended the first conference of the Yonatan Institute of Terrorism in 1979. Netanyahu is a former soldier of Israel's elite Sayeret Matkal and served under Ehud Barak, his commander.

·CREATING THE CATALYST – The false-flag terror attacks of 9-11 were Israeli-designed and managed events. Ehud Barak, the chief of secret operations for the Israeli military, came to the United States in early 2001 to supervise the preparation of the crime. He was a partner in an Israeli firm, SCP Partners, which owned metallurgical companies that specialized in manufacturing nano-composites, exactly like the super-thermite that demolished the World Trade Center on 9-11.

·INTERPRETING THE EVENT – Ehud Barak happened to be in London on 9-11, ready and willing to appear on BBC World television just minutes after the demolition of the Twin Towers. Barak was clearly well prepared to interpret the terror attacks for the English-speaking world. Without a single piece of evidence, Barak blamed Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaida and called for the U.S. and the western democracies to invade Afghanistan. The Zionist-controlled media completely supported Barak's interpretation of 9-11 and refused to address the unanswered questions or evidence of Israeli involvement in the attacks.

·CONTROLLING THE INVESTIGATION – Michael Chertoff, an Israeli national and son of a Mossad agent, was Assistant Attorney General in charge of the criminal division of the Department of Justice on 9-11. As the top boss of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which had a complete novice as its director, Chertoff was well positioned to control the investigation by confiscating and destroying crucial evidence, such as more than 99 percent of the steel from the destroyed Twin Towers. While the real evidence was being confiscated, false evidence, such as passports of the alleged hijackers, was "found" and used by Chertoff to create the myth that Al Qaida had hijacked the planes and destroyed the World Trade Center.

·SHAPING THE ZEITGEIST – Chertoff was instrumental in drafting the draconian legislation named the USA PATRIOT Act, which reinforced the idea that the United States was under attack and that our cherished civil liberties would have to be sacrificed in order to wage a global "War on Terror." A department of Homeland Security was established, which Chertoff became the head of - after he completed his critical task overseeing the "non-investigation" of 9-11.

·MANAGING THE WARS – Zionist advisers, the unelected Neo-Cons, pushed for U.S. military invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. Promoted by the controlled media, the Zionist hawks used every trick in the book, including outright lies, to convince the public and policy makers that sending hundreds of thousands of U.S. soldiers into the Middle East on an open-ended mission was the only way to prevent another 9-11 atrocity. Most of these advisers are die-hard Zionist zealots with strong attachments to Israeli military intelligence.

·OBAMA'S WAR FOR ISRAEL – Elected on a promise of "change", the Zionist-controlled Barack Obama conducted a review of the seven-year-old war in Afghanistan. Bruce O. Riedel, a veteran C.I.A. officer, was named to chair the White House review. Riedel, a senior fellow of the Chaim Saban Center for Middle East Policy at the Brookings Institution, is an employee of Chaim Saban, an Israeli "billionaire" operative in Hollywood who is an ardent supporter (and partner in crime) of Ehud Barak. Not surprisingly, Riedel advises Obama to increase the war effort in Afghanistan and send tens of thousands more U.S. troops to try to pacify the U.S.-occupied Central Asian nation.   


With Israeli criminals crafting U.S. war policies in Afghanistan, the prognosis is for more violence and terrorism.

The War in Iraq - Riley and His Story

May 1, 2010


Riley and His Story is a rare book of photographs about the war in Iraq.  Many of the images are disturbing.  It is an "ugly book" about an ugly reality that most Americans will never know, but which will affect our nation for generations.

The United States has been at war in Iraq since January 1991, more than 19 years. Started by President George H.W. Bush, the war went through a phase of 12 years of punishing sanctions, no-fly zones, and bombings during the administrations of Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, until the legally-challenged invasion of 2003 and subsequent war of occupation. Hundreds of thousands of U.S. veterans of this 20-year war now have serious health problems, physical and mental. One of the things I have noticed is the difficulties the men have relating with their families when they are back in the states. As a result of the prolonged and intense psychological stress of war a sense of alienation from their wives and children may occur in some military families.

I recently looked at a very disturbing book about the war in Iraq that shows some of the reality that causes such stress and alienation. The book is entitled Riley and his story. Me and my outrage. You and us.  The book was published in the fall of 2009 by Onestar Press (Paris) and Fälth & Hässler (Sweden). The book is not widely available in the United States. One look at the book and you will understand why. The grim reality of the illegal war in Iraq has been kept from the American people since it began in 1991. Unlike the war in Vietnam, actual photographs of the war in Iraq have not been shown to the public as they were in the 1960s on the pages of the popular news magazines TIME and LIFE. Living in the so-called Information Age, we live in a time when the real news is censored and our political reality is based on sugar-coated lies.

Riley and His Story presents the daily life of the Iraq war, as lived and photographed by Riley Sharbonno, an army nurse from Minnesota who served at Abu Ghraib prison from 2004-2005. The book is edited and laid out by Monica Haller.  The publisher showed me a copy of the book saying, "This is an ugly book."  Many of the images (especially of the wounded) are truly overwhelming, confronting the reader with the ugly reality of war as seen by one who was there.  Riley and his story won the Birgit Skiöld Award of excellence at the London Artists Book Fair 2009.  A pdf file with photos and text from the book is online at:  http://www.rileyandhisstory.com/PDF/riley_excerpts.pdf

 Title page introduction:

This is not a book. This is an invitation, a container for unstable images, a model for further action. Here is the formula: Riley and his story. Me and my outrage. You and us. Riley was a friend in college and later served as a nurse at Abu Ghraib prison. This is a container for Riley’s digital pictures and fleeting traumatic memories. Images he could not fully secure or expel and entrusted to me. Art can be a series of acts and challenges. Currently the artwork is an object in your hand—organized, mobile, tactile—a stable site to see information once elusive. The artist can mobilize information by provoking, listening, imagining, organizing and reorganizing. Right now, I am the artist. I want you to see what this war did to Riley. Pay attention. This experience happens right in your lap. To make it happen, you must read compassionately, then actively. Then the experience happens wherever you take this container and whenever you respond to my invitation. You and us, yes. Then you and another. This invitation is a model for veterans, families and friends to speak and share openly with each other. The artwork and artist are adaptable; you, the tactical reader, can use this object for your own device, or you can attend to another archive in need of careful attention. This is not a book. It is an object of deployment.

Dying in Vain - Why Afghanistan?

Updated - February 8, 2010


In Istanbul for a conference on the Afghanistan fiasco on February 5, 2010, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen told a news conference that the situation in Afghanistan is improving after 'a difficult year' in 2009. 


Two Swedes and two Brits were among those killed recently in Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan, where the real mission has nothing to do with building democracy.  Democracy is not built by a military occupation of foreign armies supporting a corrupt regime.

Have the Americans and Europeans killed in Afghanistan died in vain?  That is the case with eight American soldiers killed last October trying to defend a remote outpost in eastern Afghanistan that the military did not deem important enough to reinforce or make more secure.  What really is the mission in Afghanistan?  Have all these people died in vain?

See: "Dying in Vain in Afghanistan", February 8, 2010
http://www.allgov.com/US_and_the_World/ViewNews/Dying_in_Vain_in_Afghanistan_100208

The administration of Barack Hussein Obama II has requested $70 billion (U.S. dollars) more for its war in Afghanistan for 2010 (on top of $230 billion already spent).  In comparison, the U.S. will spend only $1.6 billion on Amtrak, the national passenger railroad system.  That means that Obama spends about $192 million per day in Afghanistan on a senseless and illegal war, which is more than the U.S. spends in 44 days to provide passenger rail service for 300 million Americans.  The U.S. spends more in 9 days on the Afghanistan fiasco than it spends in one year to provide clean and efficient rail service for the entire nation.  This is hardly the "change" America wants or needs, Mr. Obama.


After 8 years of the costly U.S.-led occupation of Afghanistan (with forces from 42 nations) there is still no peace or security.  The recent presidential poll was as bad as elections in Chicago.  The only thing that has improved at all is the opium production.  Terror bombings are frequent, like this one in Kabul on December 15, which killed 8 and wounded 40.  If the U.S. Army and its NATO allies cannot bring security to the capital of Afghanistan after 8 years, what are they doing there?  Conditions under the Taliban were much better than this.  Why are American lives and billions of U.S. tax dollars being wasted on the fiasco in Afghanistan?


A graphic from the Swedish Dagens Nyheter shows the number and nationalities of the forces participating in the occupation of Afghanistan as of November 2009.   These numbers will increase greatly as U.S. and NATO allies send more troops to the eight-year old fiasco known as the "War on Terror."   It should be noted that although the "War on Terror" is an Israeli-designed strategy and the Israeli defense minister Ehud Barak was the first to call for U.S. intervention in Afghanistan - on 9-11 - the Zionist state has not sent troops to Afghanistan (although Israeli intelligence is running the "War on Terror").  The European states, Arab states, even tiny nations like Estonia and Georgia all have troops in Afghanistan -- fighting for the Zionists who dominate their nations.

Note:  Jerry Mazza, an editor of Online Journal, has an excellent article, "Ramping up Afghanistan war to control Caspian oil and gas transport routes" that supports my thesis, first published in October 2001, that the war in Afghanistan is a military campaign to secure pipeline routes for the Israeli-owned gas of Turkmenistan.  The Mazza article is highly recommended and can be read here:  http://onlinejournal.com/artman/publish/article_5354.shtml

In a nationally televised speech at the U.S. Military Acadamy at West Point, President Barack Hussein Obama announced that he will send another 30,000 American soldiers to Afghanistan. Why is Obama sending so many troops to Central Asia?  What is the U.S. military really fighting for in Afghanistan?  Why are we still there?

Obama's December 1 speech at West Point about the war in Afghanistan presented a "false reading of history" about 9-11.  The president's speech on Afghanistan featured a repetition of the fundamental lies about who is really responsible for the terror attacks of 9-11.   The 2009 scientific paper on the discovery of super-thermite in the dust of the World Trade Center by Dr. Steven E. Jones has exposed these claims to be fabrications and revealed to the world that the Twin Towers were pulverized using an extremely sophisticated and powerful nano-composite explosive.  It should be noted that President Obama and his senior staff are fully aware that the U.S. rationale for the invasion of Afghanistan is based on a pack of lies.  History will not judge them lightly for such deceit.


Obama repeated the fundamental lies about 9-11.  Vice President Biden received the evidence of super-thermite in the dust of the World Trade Center in May 2009.  They certainly cannot say they did not know.  Nothing good can come from such criminal deceit.   

Obama repeated the following key lies about 9-11 and Afghanistan during his speech:

Lie No. 1:   I am convinced that our security is at stake in Afghanistan and Pakistan. This is the epicenter of the violent extremism practiced by al-Qaeda. It is from here that we were attacked on 9/11, and it is from here that new attacks are being plotted as I speak.

Lie No. 2:   It is important to recall why America and our allies were compelled to fight a war in Afghanistan in the first place. We did not ask for this fight. On September 11, 2001, 19 men hijacked four airplanes and used them to murder nearly 3,000 people.

Lie No. 3:   If I did not think that the security of the United States and the safety of the American people were at stake in Afghanistan, I would gladly order every single one of our troops home tomorrow.

Why is Obama lying to the American people about Afghanistan and 9-11?  


Why Afghanistan?

By Christopher Bollyn


Every war results from the struggle for markets and spheres of influence, and every war is sold to the public by professional liars and totally sincere religious maniacs, as a Holy Crusade to save God and Goodness from Satan and Evil.
- Robert Anton Wilson (1932-2007)


The discovery of pieces of an extremely explosive form of super-Thermite in the dust of the World Trade Center is of profound importance because it is evidence of the actual nano-Thermite used to demolish and pulverize the Twin Towers.  The red-gray chips found in the dust by Dr. Steven E. Jones of Brigham Young University disprove the government claims about what caused the destruction of the three towers on 9-11.  Fragments of the nano-composite explosive were analyzed by an international team of nine scientists and the evidence presented in a peer-reviewed paper in March 2009.


Fragments of the highly explosive super-Thermite found in the dust of the World Trade Center

The discovery of super-Thermite in the dust exposes the government-funded reports as fabrications created to conceal the explosive demolition of the Twin Towers and WTC 7.  The 9-11 reports produced by the federal agencies FEMA and NIST were written to mislead the public and media about what really happened to the buildings – and the thousands of people trapped within them.  This is to say that the U.S. government and controlled media have intentionally deceived the public for eight years.
 
The highest officials of the Obama administration have the evidence discussed in the Jones paper but have ignored the discovery of super-Thermite in the rubble and refuse to discuss the evidence of explosions in the towers on 9-11.  On May 18, 2009, U.S. Vice President Joseph Biden was personally given a copy of the 25-page Jones paper during a visit to Los Angeles and asked about the administration's position on the need for an investigation in light of this discovery.  Biden refused to answer the journalist's questions, but took the paper and immediately left the event.

The government and the controlled media claim that the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center collapsed due to fires caused by the crashes of the two airplanes that hit them.  It needs to be clearly understood that the evidence presented in the Jones paper completely disproves the government claims about what happened on 9-11.  The publication of the evidence of super-Thermite in early 2009 marked the end of the government version as an acceptable explanation for the events of 9-11.  It exposes the official version to be nothing but a pack of lies used to start the Israeli-designed "War on Terror" – and a very real war of aggression in Afghanistan.

OUR POLITICAL PREDICAMENT

The evidence of super-Thermite in the dust of the pulverized Twin Towers puts every American in the unpleasant position of having to decide what to believe about 9-11 and the war in Afghanistan.  If the evidence of the extremely powerful nano-composite explosive in the dust is correct, as it certainly appears to be, it would mean that the Obama administration, members of Congress, and the media are intentionally deceiving the American people about what happened on 9-11.  This deception, which began on 9-11, was used to send U.S. forces to invade and occupy Afghanistan.  If this is the case, the officials engaged in this deception are committing high crimes and treason.  This is clearly an unacceptable situation that cannot be tolerated.  The officials who are supporting the deception about 9-11 and the wars of aggression in Afghanistan and Iraq need to be removed from office and held accountable for their actions and crimes.  

This is the political predicament that faces every American citizen today.  Although this dilemma is most acute in the United States, other nations face similar predicaments.  Some forty nations are involved in the U.S.-led occupation of Afghanistan and in each of them the public has been deceived about the real reasons for the war.  One can almost gauge the degree to which a nation is Zionist-controlled by the number of troops it has sent to Afghanistan.  The United States and Britain have sent the largest contingents, followed by Germany, France, Canada, Italy, Poland, the Netherlands, and Romania. 

TYRANNY OF LIES

When Joe Wilson, a Republican representative from South Carolina, shouted, "You lie," during President Barack Obama's recent speech to Congress about healthcare on September 9, 2009, it was a perfect example of the expression, "the pot calling the kettle black."  Rep. Joe Wilson has been deceiving the American people about the real reasons for the war in Afghanistan since 2001.  As a member of the House Committee on Armed Services and the Committee on Foreign Affairs, Wilson has access to highest level intelligence and cannot claim ignorance as an excuse for the lies he tells the public.


In an interview with Greg Corombos of Radio America on September 21, 2009, Representative Joe Wilson repeated, once again, the fundamental deception about 9-11 and the war in Afghanistan:

We know that September the 11th, the attacks on New York, Pennsylvania, and Washington, were directed from a valley in Afghanistan.  We should not have to learn that again.  What we are doing is truly protecting the American people by providing for a stable government in Pak… in Afghanistan.

About the war in Afghanistan, Wilson repeated the lie he has been telling for years, using the word "truly," as he often does.  "This is truly an issue of protecting American families at home by defeating the terrorists overseas," he said.

If Wilson is correct about 9-11 being "directed from a valley in Afghanistan" it would mean that Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaida terrorists managed to place many tons of a very sophisticated explosive film of nano-Thermite in the Twin Towers before they were demolished.  This would mean that Bin Laden, working from a cave in Afghanistan, one of the poorest nations in the world, had access to state-of-the-art nanotechnology and the wherewithal to secretly apply the super-Thermite and other explosives to the surfaces and core columns of the well-guarded towers in New York City.  Like all other supporters of the government deception about 9-11, Wilson can only make such absurd and incredible statements by completely ignoring the scientific evidence of super-Thermite in the dust of the pulverized Twin Towers.  It should be noted that most members of Congress support the false claims articulated by Rep. Joe Wilson.

Blaming Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaida for 9-11 was evidently the master plan behind the false-flag terror attacks.  The corrupt government officials and the controlled media cannot address the evidence of super-Thermite presented by Dr. Jones because that would expose the pack of lies about 9-11 and the war in Afghanistan, a deception they have supported for eight years.  The first response to 9-11 by the administration of George W. Bush was the military invasion and occupation of Afghanistan.  This indicates that invading Afghanistan was the real reason for the terror atrocities that ushered in the Zionist-designed fraud known as the "War on Terror."  That is to say that thousands of Americans were killed on 9-11 to provide an excuse to invade and occupy Afghanistan.

WHY AFGHANISTAN?  

The administrations of George W. Bush and Barack Hussein Obama II are Zionist-dominated and controlled governments.  Rahm Emanuel, for example, the Chief-of-Staff of the Obama White House, is actually an Israeli citizen and the son of a Zionist terrorist from the Irgun, the most radical terror gang in Palestine during the 1930s and 1940s.  The Zionist influence in these administrations can easily be seen by the placement of pro-Israel agents in different positions at every level.  

Israeli influence within the U.S. military and intelligence spheres is as extensive and deep as it is within the Oval Office.  Israeli military intelligence has a great deal of influence in every sphere of the U.S. government which is involved in making the decisions that go into taking the United States to war.  That the U.S. government would accept Israeli intelligence on the Middle East from a state that has been at war with nearly every
other nation in the region since 1948 is clearly an absurd and biased situation but that is how it is.  This is how the United States was taken to war in Afghanistan in October 2001 – and why we are still there.

Although no group claimed responsibility for the attacks, Israeli political and military leaders were well prepared to immediately interpret the meaning of 9-11 and spoke to the mass media with one voice.  On the very day of the attacks, for example, Shabtai Shavit, the former head of Israel's Mossad, said: "The attacks symbolize the conflict between extremist Islam versus the Western democracies."  The Mossad then provided
fabricated evidence to support its claims via its agents in the U.S. government, such as Assistant Attorney General Michael Chertoff, the key official in the cover-up of 9-11.

The Israeli politicians Benjamin Netanyahu and Ehud Barak were the very first people to blame Osama Bin Laden for 9-11 and call for military action against the Taliban-led regime in Afghanistan.  They used the terror attacks and the controlled media to begin the Zionist fraud known as the "War on Terror," an Israeli military strategy long promoted by "Bibi" Netanyahu.


Israel's current Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak called for U.S. military action against Afghanistan immediately after 9-11.

On 9-11, Ehud Barak, the former Israeli prime/defense minister/military intelligence chief, was the first person to call for the U.S. to attack Afghanistan.  Barak told Rupert Murdoch's Sky Television in London that Western governments needed to make a concerted effort to combat terrorism:  "Most obviously my guess is a bin Laden organization...We have to stand firm against such terrorism," Barak said.

"We have to coordinate to launch the same kind of fight that our forefathers gave to the fight against piracy on the high seas - mainly terrorists should not be allowed to land at any port or airport," Barak said. "The leadership of the world should be able to take action. It is time for action. The world is not going to be the same place as before," he said.

"Bin Laden sits in Afghanistan," Barak said on 9-11.  "We know where the terror sites are.  It's time for action."

When Barak specifically called for military action against Afghanistan, he was speaking for Israel's military intelligence establishment, an organization he has headed for many years.  Barak is Israel's current minister of defense and has been at the top of Israel's military intelligence organization for several decades.  He was head of Israel's Military Intelligence Directorate (AMAN 1983-1985), head of Central Command (1986 - 1987), and Deputy Chief of the General Staff (1987-1991). He was Chief of the General Staff between April 1, 1991 and January 1, 1995.     

Barak went on to serve as Minister of the Interior (1995) and Minister of Foreign Affairs (1995-1996). He was elected to the Knesset in 1996, where he served as a member of the Israeli government's committees on foreign affairs and defense. In 1996, he became the leader of the Labor Party and was elected to be prime minister in May 1999.  He served as prime minister until early 2001, when he went into business, primarily in the United States.  An article in the Israeli press entitled "Ehud Barak Ltd." discussed some of the people involved with Barak's business dealings and his penchant for secrecy:  "None of them really has the whole picture of Barak's business dealings - in business, as in politics, his policy is strict compartmentalization and secrecy."

Why would Ehud Barak, the most senior member of Israel's military intelligence establishment, call for the U.S. to invade Afghanistan before any investigation of the terror crimes of 9-11 had even begun?  How would Israel benefit from a U.S.-led invasion and occupation of Afghanistan?

As Robert Anton Wilson said, "Every war results from the struggle for markets and spheres of influence."  The war in Afghanistan is certainly no different.  The Israelis are determined to use their influence in the United States to advance their interests and influence in Central Asia while limiting those of Russia and Iran.  Following the break-up of the Soviet Union, Israeli agents sought to gain control of the strategic assets of the newly independent Soviet republics.  In mineral-rich Turkmenistan, a Mossad agent named Yosef A. Maiman was very successful in gaining control of the republic's immense resources of natural gas.

Yosef Maiman, born in Germany in 1946, grew up in Peru and studied in the United States before becoming an Israeli citizen in 1971.  As an agent of Israeli intelligence, Maiman heads a network of Mossad-controlled companies that serve Israeli interests.  As the chief executive of the Merhav Group, Maiman has long controlled the development of Turmenistan's gas resources, which are considered to be second only to Russia's.  Maiman's key colleagues at Merhav are the former head of the Mossad, Shabtai Shavit, and Nimrod Novik, chief adviser to Shimon Peres, the current president of Israel.


Mossad agent Yosef A. Maiman controls the gas resources of Turkmenistan.

Maiman was described as "a leading miner" of Central Asian gas fields by the Jerusalem Post in 2004.  Given the fact that he controls the immense gas resources of Turkmenistan, the Israeli Maiman, his Merhav company, and his fellow Mossadniks would all profit immensely -- if and when the U.S.-led coalition were able to "pacify" and control Afghanistan so that the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) gas pipeline could be built allowing the gas of Turkmenistan to be sold to energy-hungry India.  The TAPI pipeline project would bring billions of dollars into Mossad coffers every year.  This is the real reason for the war in Afghanistan and why the Zionist-controlled Obama administration has increased the war effort in Central Asia.  It really has nothing to do with "Islamic terrorism" or 9-11.

The Merhav Group is a private company.  Maiman is president and chairman of the board.  He is also chairman of Ampal-American Israel Corporation, Israel's Channel 10 (which he owns with Ron Lauder, Rupert Murdoch, and Arnon Milchen), Gadot Chemical Tankers and Terminals Ltd., and Arnon Milchen's agro-chemical company, Milchen Brothers Ltd.


Maiman's Merhav Group is a Mossad-controlled network of companies.

Maiman's network reveals the Mossad-controlled companies linked to 9-11 and the war in Afghanistan.  Maiman, for example, is an owner and director of Eltek, Ltd. an Israeli manufacturer of printed circuit boards, along with Eytan Barak.  Barak is also a director of ICTS International N.V., the Israeli aviation security company that owns Huntleigh USA, the passenger screening company directly involved with the planes and passenger screening operations on 9-11.  Barak is a director of ICTS, a member of the supervisory board, audit committee, and compensation committee.  Huntleigh is a key defendant in the 9-11 tort litigation but the Mossad-owned company has been protected by the Zionist Alvin K. Hellerstein, the U.S. District Judge who has prevented any 9-11 trial from finding those responsible for the terror atrocity that changed the world.

Why Are We Unable to Resist?

Updated: October 20, 2009

I often wonder why young Americans do nothing to protest the outrageous criminal regime that has taken control of the United States.  Where is the resistance?  Two illegal wars, a growing police state, and several trillion dollars stolen by criminal bankers from the American people in the past year alone -- why aren't they protesting, resisting - burning tires in the streets?


Why are Americans unable to protest against the criminal regime that has taken over their nation?  Here French farmers protest low grain prices in Paris on October 16, 2009.  Why don't we see such protests against the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, or against the trillion dollar rip-off for the big bankers?  Why is the resistance in the U.S. completely unorganized?

Having grown up during the Vietnam War, I was immersed in the protest movement and vibrant anti-war music and culture of the 1960s.  "Lucky Man" by Emerson, Lake, and Palmer is a good example of the anti-war music of the time.  I find it odd that there is no similar anti-war movement or music today.  Faced with never-ending wars in the Middle East, today's youth seem completely apathetic and apolitical.

During the years that I attended public school, the United States was engaged in an undeclared war of aggression and terrorism in Southeast Asia that nobody really understood.  Every week, the American people saw actual photos from the war in LIFE magazine and could easily see through the deception that we were fighting "communism".   After 8 years of war in Afghanistan and 18 years in Iraq, however, there is no similar photo-journalism of comparable quality coming from the "embedded" journalists covering these wars.  Likewise, there is virtually no anti-war music or protest movement against the criminal wars being fought in our name.   Why?

We have to look at the media to understand the lack of a similar anti-war movement in the United States.  Today, there is no mass resistance because the U.S. media is now completely owned and controlled by Zionist Jews who actually support the fraudulent "War on Terror" and the illegal wars being fought by the United States and its allies.  These wars are being waged to benefit Israel and strengthen the Zionist hegemony in the Middle East and Central Asia.  The Zionist-controlled mass media in the United States now works full time to promote the war agenda - first Afghanistan, then Iraq, and now Iran.  In the Zionist-controlled media there is no room for any real criticism of the Zionist war agenda.

Paul Wolfowitz, one of the senior U.S. officials who conspired and planned the wars of aggression against both Afghanistan and Iraq, is now pushing for war against Iran in the pages of the Financial Times (U.K.), for example.  It needs to be understood that Wolfowitz is guilty of the most serious war crime, "a crime against peace" as defined by the Nuremberg Principles.  That his opinion is published in a leading financial paper illustrates my point that the mass media actively promotes the Zionist war agenda.  Wolfowitz has strong connections to the state of Israel.  He lived in Israel as a teenager when his Polish-born father, Jacob, worked at the Technion, and his sister, Laura, married an Israeli and lives in Jerusalem.

The controlled media today censors and sanitizes the images and information about the wars and the human suffering the aggression has caused to the people of Iraq and Afghanistan.  The public is kept in the dark about the true costs of the illegal wars, both human and financial.  Most importantly, the U.S. media keeps powerful images like these from the Vietnam and Iraq wars off the pages of our newspapers.


The famous photo of Vietnamese children burned with napalm changed U.S. public opinion about the war.


The photo of a summary execution by a South Vietnamese police chief showed the lawlessness of the war.


The U.S. evacuates after the fall of Saigon

After nearly 19 years of fighting and bombing Iraqis, very few images of the human cost of the war have been published.  The ones that have been seen are horrible beyond belief and reveal the criminal nature of the war of aggression.


A photo from the "Highway of Death" shows what happened to one of the thousands of retreating Iraqis who were incinerated by a U.S. gas-air MOAB (Mother of All Bombs) in 1991.

The Vietnam war was being fought, we were told, to keep Southeast Asia from falling to the communists.  Thousands of young men, including several of my relatives, went to Vietnam to fight "communism".  Many thousands of young Americans died in Viet Nam.  An untold number of Vietnamese died.

Vietnam eventually did fall to the communists and the last U.S. personnel had to flee from the roof of the embassy in Saigon with desperate people being pushed off the over-crowded helicopters.  Despite the fact that the U.S. lost the war in Vietnam, the world did not come to an end.  As a matter of fact, nobody even seemed to notice.  Most people were simply glad the 12-year old war was over.

I have often wondered why today's youth seem utterly unable to resist the blatant lies of the criminal government and controlled media, which are clearly extremely harmful to them and their nation.  I can't understand why the young people in America and Europe abuse themselves with tattoos and body piercings.  Don't they care about themselves?  I have seen people with screws coming through their eyebrows that look like construction accidents that should be sent to the nearest emergency room. 

Christopher J.
Petherick, the former chief editor of the Spotlight and American Free Press, a weekly newspaper I wrote for in Washington, D.C., had an ugly metal stud sticking through his tongue that looked absolutely awful.  I had never seen such a thing.  He told me that he was a Satanist.  I thought he was just an East Coast trendie.  I sometimes told him that we were doing the Lord's work by spreading the Truth.  


Christopher J. Petherick, a self-avowed Satanist, was the editor of American Free Press and the former Spotlight, publications of the Liberty Lobby of Washington, D.C.  It makes no sense that a Satanist would be the chief editor of a newspaper that is purportedly written for patriotic Christian Americans, unless one understands that the Liberty Lobby is actually owned and controlled by a Zionist Jew named Mark Lane.  The paper is a controlled opposition outlet that acts like flypaper to create a list of active patriots -- for the Jewish intelligence organization Lane works for.

Petherick fired me after a three-man team of heavily-armed undercover police broke my arm and TASERed me in front of my family, but only after collecting many thousands of dollars from readers for the Bollyn "legal defense fund," which were kept by the so-called employee owned newspaper.  I later discovered that the newspaper and the organization behind it, the Liberty Lobby, are actually owned by the Jewish leftist lawyer, Mark Lane, and have been since the early 1990s when he bought the assets of Liberty Lobby with some of the $5 million he had been paid by Willis A. Carto in legal fees.

I learned this from L.T. Patterson, publisher of Criminal Politics of Cincinnati.  Patterson's newsletter is similar to the publications of the Mark Lane's Liberty Lobby, which is what led Lane to sue Patterson in the mid-1990s for some $10 million.  Lane, a Zionist Jew, wanted to have a monopoly in the patriotic newspaper business.  During the legal process Patterson learned that Lane had acquired the assets of the nearly bankrupt Liberty Lobby in the early 1990s.  Manfred Roeder, a German patriot who has been imprisoned often in occupied Germany, told me that such controlled opposition newspapers like National Zeitung are designed to skim the cream off of the nationalist movement.  They also serve as outlets of disinformation and have even more sinister purposes.


Jane Fonda and Mark Lane worked closely together in the anti-war movement during the Vietnam War.  Lane, who served in U.S. Army intelligence in post-war Germany, owns the assets of Liberty Lobby and American Free Press.

As the U.S. prepared for war in Kuwait and Iraq in the summer of 1990, I began organizing pro-Palestinian students at the University of California at Santa Cruz who were opposed to the war effort.  I learned a great deal through my anti-war efforts.  I saw how the anti-war movement was taken over by Jewish students from the Hillel organization (B'nai B'rith).  The issue of occupied Palestine was pushed to the side.  This is what controlled opposition means:  controlling both sides of the debate to control the message.

James B. Phillips, a devout Catholic and dear friend from Chicago who served in Vietnam, recently sent me a video from the mid-1980s that explains how Americans have been demoralized and why. 


James B. Phillips, (top row, 3rd from left) commanded a U.S. rifle platoon in Viet Nam. 

The information comes from a former agent of the Soviet K.G.B. who defected to the United States.

The former K.G.B. agents says:  "Exposure to true information does not matter anymore.  A person who was demoralized is unable to assess true information.  The facts tell nothing to him."

This is exactly the problem we face in 2009.  Although Americans have the information that proves that their government has not been elected and is lying to them about 9-11 and everything else, the people do nothing to resist.  They have become enslaved to lies.  This video explains how this was done.

As the former Soviet journalist Yuri Bezmenov says in the video clip about the KGB's demoralization of American youth through the media, "Ideological subversion is the process which is legitimate and open. You can see it with your own eyes.... It has nothing to do with espionage... in reality the main emphasis of the KGB is NOT in the area of intelligence at all. According to my opinion, and the opinions of many defectors of my caliber, only about 15% of time, money, and manpower is spent on espionage as such. The other 85 percent is a slow process which we call either ideological subversion, active measures, or psychological warfare. What it basically means is to change the perception of reality of every American [so] that despite the abundance of information no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their families, their community, and their country."

Today, nearly every network and news outlet in the U.S. mass media is owned and controlled by Zionist Jews.  This is a statement of fact and should not be misconstrued to be anti-Semitic in any way.  Zionist Jews control nearly all of the U.S. mass media: television and radio networks, major newspapers, book publishers and leading book stores, and the big film studios and chains of movie theatres.  They have taken control of the media for one reason - to manipulate public opinion by controlling the message.  It is the same with media as with pipelines:  He who owns the pipeline controls the product.  

Many of the Jewish media moguls are members of the secret organization of Freemasons, the International Order of B'nai B'rith.  Philip Morris Klutznick, the man who made Obama president, was the international president of B'nai B'rith.  The Sulzberger family who owns the New York Times was one of the founding families of Lodge No. 1 of the B'nai B'rith, which was started in New York City in 1843.  It is through this secret society, which is closed to all non-Jews, that the media moguls and Jewish financiers are able to conspire against the American people while living among them. 

The B'nai B'rith also started the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) in the early 1900s.  The ADL is an organization that protects the Jewish criminal network by attacking those who expose their crimes.  The ADL has infiltrated police departments across the United States.  The B'nai B'rith also runs Hillel, an organization for promoting the Zionist agenda at every college campus in the United States.  Through their organizations like the ADL and Hillel, the secretive Elders of Zion of the B'nai B'rith are able to push their agenda into every community and college campus in America.  The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is certainly not a "hoary fake", and is most likely the protocols from a meeting of the leaders of the B'nai B'rith. 

Bezmenov's statement about the KGB being primarily occupied with disinformation and demoralization efforts aimed at Americans through the media is similar to the analysis by the German intelligence expert, Andreas von Bülow, who told me that 90 percent of the work done by the CIA and other intelligence agencies is disinformation and deception. 

It needs to be understood that communism and Zionism are fraternal twins from the same mother -- big Jewish capital of the Rothschild sort.  This relationship can be seen in Rahm Emanuel and David Axelrod, the most senior advisers of President Barack Hussein Obama II.  Emanuel, the son of a Zionist terrorist, and Axelrod, the son of Jewish communists, were commissioned in 1992 by the daughter of Jewish financier Philip Morris Klutznick of Chicago to make Obama our "first black president."  Zionism and communism are two heads of the same evil beast.

Communism and Zionism emerged together in the Russian Empire in the late 1800s.  There were six communist parties, two of which were also Zionist.  Although the Rothschild family who created the state of Israel is capitalist, the Russian Jews who emigrated to Palestine in the late 1800s and early 1900s were ardent communists and socialists.  Most of the Ashkenazi (Khazar and Slavic) Jews who built the Zionist state and who run it to this day come from the communist and Zionist parties that created the kibbutz and moshav settlements in Palestine.  The Jews who were forced to emigrate to Palestine (later Israel) and the millions of people who have lived under communism are similar.  Zionists and communists are both merely the pawns of the Rothschilds; foot soldiers for international Jewish bankers.

The Christmas Bomber and the Fraudulent War on Terror

January 11, 2010


"Let's be clear about what this moment demands.  We are at war.  We are at war against Al Qaida."
- President Barack Obama, 7 January 2010 


For the people on the ground in Pakistan and elsewhere, Obama's "War on Terror" means only more U.S. aggression and terrorism - against them and their families.  Hundreds of innocent civilians have already been killed by Hellfire missiles fired by C.I.A. operated drones.  Is this not state-sponsored terrorism?

The Christmas Bomber and the Fraudulent War on Terror

by Christopher Bollyn
www.bollyn.com

 In Washington, President Obama is under pressure to take action. The Christmas Day attempted attack over Detroit may have failed, but it brought back instant memories of 9/11. Military action will continue.
- Jeremy Bowen, BBC Middle East Editor, 5 January 2010

On 18 November 2009 I published a warning in which I said there was a "very high" risk of a false-flag "Al Qaida" terror attack against Americans.  The warning was the thrust of my article, entitled “Terror Risk High as Obama Ponders Afghan Fiasco,” which begins with this sentence:  "The risk of another false-flag terror attack like the terror atrocities of 9-11 is currently very high."  (A "false-flag" terror incident is one that is designed to affect public opinion by being blamed on a third party by the real perpetrators.)  On Christmas Day, thirty-seven days after my article was published on Bollyn.com, the false-flag terror incident I predicted occurred on a passenger airliner approaching Detroit's Metro Airport.


The "attempted" bombing on Christmas Day was designed to garner support for President Obama's actions in support of the Zionist fraud known as the "War on Terror".

My November 18 warning of a false-flag terror attack was the first I have ever issued based on my own understanding of the political situation at hand.  I decided to publish the warning because I was absolutely convinced that the Zionist planners behind the fraudulent "War on Terror" desperately needed a high-profile terrorist incident involving Americans to gain public and political support to legitimize the actions the Obama administration has taken to advance the Zionist war on Islam.  As President Barack Obama called for a massive troop surge in Afghanistan there was clearly an urgent need to validate his ill-advised policies to increase U.S. force levels in the disastrous and costly eight-year-old war - a war of aggression which lacks any validity.  Since terrorism is the primary tool and tactic in the Zionist construct known as the "War on Terror" it seemed quite logical that a false-flag terror event involving "al Qaida" was imminent, so I published the warning.    

To be successful, a false-flag terror attack has to attract a huge amount of attention around the world and be immediately
interpreted by the mass media in such a way to sway public opinion in the direction desired by the terror planners.  The propaganda value of a false-flag terror attack is the real reason behind the architectural planning of such an event.  This is the main difference between the two major attacks that occurred during the Christmas holiday period.  The suicide bombing on December 30 of the C.I.A.'s Forward Operating Base Chapman in Khost, Afghanistan, in which seven high-level U.S. intelligence officers and a spy chief from the Kingdom of Jordan were killed was obviously more lethal, but it was not a false-flag terror attack and has no propaganda value, quite the contrary, it revealed that the King of Jordan is an active member of the U.S. war effort in Afghanistan and Pakistan.  The suicide bombing of the C.I.A. base was a military attack reportedly carried out by the Taliban and meant to take revenge for the C.I.A.'s killing of hundreds of innocent people in Afghanistan and Pakistan with the agency's current weapon of terror, the drone loaded with Hellfire missiles.  


Death from Above: A C.I.A. remote-controlled Predator drone fires a Hellfire missile.  This is fundamentally the same terror tactic that was used to kill thousands of Americans on 9-11.  Who has decided that the people on the ground deserve to die?  What is their crime?  Defending their homeland from foreign occupation?


Funeral in Pakistan for a victim of a C.I.A. drone attack.  Who determines who is a militant and who is a civilian?

The “failed al-Qaida bombing attempt” on Christmas Day in Detroit, on the other hand, is exactly the kind of false-flag terror attack I meant in my warning, although I hadn't anticipated the possibility of an "intentional dud," which this incident evidently was.  Readers of Bollyn.com know that this was the first and only time I have published a false-flag terror warning based on my own understanding of the logic and players in the Zionist fraud known as the "War on Terror."

As I wrote on November 18:

The risk of another false-flag terror attack like the terror atrocities of 9-11 is currently very high…An Israeli-designed terror attack that is seen by the public as having been committed by Al Qaida would serve as an effective decision maker for Obama and swing public opinion behind sending more troops to the eight-year-old war of occupation in Afghanistan.  This is why I consider the chances of another terror attack to be blamed on Al Qaida to be very high at the moment.

The Christmas Day attack of the so-called Underwear Bomber on Delta’s Northwest Airlines Flight 253 is Mossad's idea of a joke but it is certainly meant to be taken with all seriousness by the Zionist-controlled media and corrupt politicians who make policy decisions based on such events.  Jeremy Bowen, Middle East Editor for the BBC, distilled the propaganda message of the Christmas Day bomber down to its simplest form for public consumption on January 5:

In Washington, President Obama is under pressure to take action. The Christmas Day attempted attack over Detroit may have failed, but it brought back instant memories of 9/11. Military action will continue.

MILITARY ACTION WILL CONTINUE

One can imagine that the Israeli leaders Shimon Peres, Benjamin Netanyahu, Ehud Barak, and their fellow terrorists who planned this false-flag terror scenario, got a good laugh out of the inept Underwear Bomber – only at his expense and ours.  The level of false-flag terror absurdity in the United States has truly reached the level depicted in Brazil, the futuristic film of a world dominated by terrorism.  The Terry Gilliam film was actually produced by the Israeli weapons dealer and senior Mossadnik, Arnon Milchan (or Milchen), a close friend of Peres, Netanyahu, and Barak.  The Zionist terrorist masterminds chose Christmas Day for several reasons, primarily because of the increased psychological effect on Christians, but also because it is the one day of the year on which the security and passenger-screening crews would be largely staffed by people who don't celebrate Christmas.


The Israeli terror masterminds Shimon Peres, Bibi Netanyahu, and Ehud Barak

The attempted bombing of Flight 253 by the 23-year-old Nigerian was obviously not meant to destroy the plane.  Had Abdul Mutallab actually exploded his "explosive device" the terror event would have had no immediate propaganda value.  First, the wreckage would have to be found in the depths of the North Atlantic or expanses of eastern Canada and then an official investigation conducted to determine what had happened to the Delta flight that had suddenly disappeared from the radar screen.  It could take weeks or months before anyone would even be blamed for the attack.  That certainly wouldn't help the Zionist planners advance their "War on Terror" so it was decided to carry out an "attempted" bombing, like the earlier "shoe bomber," in which the inept bomber would be caught red-handed in the act of committing a terror atrocity.  

If the Underwear Bomber had really intended to destroy the flight, why would he have waited until the plane was making its final descent into the Detroit area before trying to detonate the explosive device?  Why was he so inept in his efforts with an explosive that required a different sort of detonation device?  Why did he seem like a person who had been mind-controlled to carry out the attempted bombing?  What possible motivation can the young son of a wealthy Nigerian banker have to kill innocent people over the skies of Detroit?  He is, after all, a devout Muslim.  Can we expect to get real answers to these questions?


Abdul Mutallab (in red), here in London, is known to be a devout Muslim.  What would be his motive to commit a terror crime against innocent people?  It simply does not make sense.

A group of Republican senators, led by the pro-Israel Republican John McCain (who visited Israel over the weekend of January 9-10) are seeking to transfer the Abdul Mutallab case to a military court.  Why would a pro-Israeli senator like McCain want this young Nigerian tried by a military tribunal?  McCain and others argue that critical questions such as the identities of those who assisted and trained Abdul Mutallab remain unanswered.  Indeed, they are and will probably remain so.  Did he receive funding and support from others, and if so, from whom?  The first question should be whether Abdul Mutallab was really in his right mind or whether he had been subjected to mind-control methods that made him an unwitting Manchurian Candidate.  Eyewitness reports about his appearance and initial responses strongly suggest that he was under some form of mind-control.  Will a trial in a U.S. District Court really get to the bottom of who is behind Abdul Mutallab?

MOSSAD IN YEMEN

To understand who is behind the Christmas Day bombing attempt one need only understand that the "War on Terror" is a complete Zionist fraud designed to drag the United States and other nations into a global war against Islamic movements seeking social justice in the Middle East and elsewhere.  Across the region there are many Islamic organizations, like the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, which challenge the corrupt dictatorships that oppress their people and prevent real development.  The Mubarak dictatorship in Egypt, for example, is supported and funded with billions of dollars by the U.S. government to maintain a police state that is paid to support Israel while repressing the people of Egypt.  Such arrangements of maintaining political control through corruption are certainly not sustainable for the long term.  

The U.S. war in Afghanistan is supposedly being waged against Al Qaida because of their role in the terror attacks of 9-11, but the actual target has always been the Taliban, an Islamic movement.  Islamic movements of this type are naturally anti-Zionist.  The Israeli planners of the War on Terror seek to inflame passions on both sides to the point that the U.S. war on Islam takes on its own dynamic but that has not yet happened so the Zionist terrorists stoke the fire by creating false-flag terror events like 9-11 - and the attempted bombing of the Delta flight on Christmas Day.

The Mossad, Israel's secret service, has been operating in Yemen since the 1940's.  In 1949, the Mossad arranged for the removal of some 49,000 Yemenite Jews to Israel with the approval of Yemen's leader.  Michael Chertoff's "Mossadnik" mother, Livia Eisen, played a key role in this secret airlift, code-named Operation Magic Carpet, which involved some 380 flights on British and American aircraft.  Today, there are some 360,000 Yemenite Jews living in Israel.


Nearly all of Yemen's 49,000 Jews were taken to Israel in a Mossad operation in 1949-50 called Operation Magic Carpet.

The Israeli Mossad continues to operate in Yemen, as the President of Yemen Ali Abdullah Saleh revealed openly in early October 2008:  "A terrorist cell was arrested five days ago and will be referred to the judicial authorities for its links with the Israeli intelligence services."

The AFP and global press reported that the Israeli "terrorist cell" discovered by Yemeni authorities in 2008 had been involved in a deadly attack against the U.S. embassy in the Yemeni capital the previous month.  President Saleh said the Israeli terror cell operated under the "slogan of Islam."  Sources close to the Yemeni investigation told AFP that Saleh was thought to have been referring to six men rounded up in Sanaa after the 17 September 2008 attack on the U.S. Embassy which left 18 people dead.

An Israeli "Al Qaida" terror cell in Yemen is probably behind the kidnapping and mind-control operation that resulted in the devout Muslim Abdul Mutallab trying to detonate an explosive device on Delta's Northwest Flight 253.  The fact that Abdul Mutallab flew through Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport is a further indication that the Mossad is involved.  Both the Schiphol Airport and Delta Airlines are clients of ICTS (International Consultants on Targeted Security), the Mossad-controlled airport security company that oversaw passenger screening at the airports involved in the 9-11 attacks through its wholly-owned subsidiary Huntleigh USA.  While ICTS Europe is officially headquartered in Amsterdam, its real Mossad management is based in Israel.

Abdul Mutallab bought his tickets in Accra, Ghana, on December 16, eight days before he departed.  Although he flew to Detroit via Nigeria, his homeland, he did not visit or speak with his family.  This suggests that the young devout Muslim was being chaperoned and is simply another victim of a devious Israeli intelligence plot designed to promote the Zionist-managed "War on Terror" and legitimize President Obama's increased U.S. military involvement in Yemen, Afghanistan, and beyond.  We must not allow ourselves to be deceived by this most absurd and evil Israeli terror spectacle.  It is high time for the real culprits behind 9-11 and the false-flag terror of the past decade to be exposed and stopped.

False Flag Terror Risk High as Obama Ponders Afghan Fiasco

November 18, 2009

The risk of another false-flag terror attack like the terror atrocities of 9-11 is currently very high.  This is not a prediction but a warning based on my analysis of 9-11 and the predicament that the U.S. and NATO find themselves in as they try to "pacify" occupied Afghanistan, a nation of fighting men who have always resisted foreign occupiers since Alexander the Great conquered the region and built Kandahar (Alexandria) in 330 B.C. 


The U.S. occupaton of Afghanistan has led to a huge increase in opium production.
(Photo - New York Times)

Unlike Alexander the Great, the U.S. has not built any new cities in Afghanistan and they are having a very hard time holding on to the capital, Kabul, which is the only place their installed puppet Hamid Karzai has any political power whatsoever.  The fact that Karzai stole the recent election through massive vote fraud exposes the lie that the U.S. is fighting to bring democracy to Afghanistan.  Thus far the U.S.-led occupation has only succeeded in producing bumper crops of opium for the illegal drug trade and putting in power one of the most corrupt regimes on Earth.  The cost of the illegal invasions and occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq is already more than $1 trillion, when one factors in the future costs that will be incurred from the long-term care for the thousands of seriously wounded and mentally disturbed U.S. veterans, which already number in the tens of thousands.  Pray tell, Mr. Obama, exactly what benefits have these illegal wars brought to the American people to justify such huge costs?  Why are we still slogging away against the people of Afghanistan?


An Afghan fighting man at a funeral of a fallen comrade.  The men of Afghanistan, mainly Pashtuns of Aryan stock, are fighting the U.S.-led occupation of their nation.  What would you do if your country were occupied?  Would you take up arms and fight to free your nation from occupation or would you submit to the occupying power?  This question is much more pertinent than most Americans realize.

As President Barack Hussein Obama ponders what to do about the fiasco in Afghanistan, the risk of a false-flag terror attack that forces his hand is greatly increased.  An Israeli-designed terror attack that is seen by the public as having been committed by Al Qaida would serve as an effective decision maker for Obama and swing public opinion behind sending more troops to the eight-year-old war of occupation in Afghanistan.  This is why I consider the chances of another terror attack to be blamed on Al Qaida to be very high at the moment.

The false-flag terror attack may not happen in the United States.  The U.S.-occupied nations of Iraq and Afghanistan (as well as Pakistan) suffer false-flag terror attacks on a weekly basis, especially when there is a foreign dignitary like Hillary Clinton around to impress.  These nations suffer terror casualties on the scale of 9-11 every year.  A spectacular terror attack during a high profile diplomatic visit is typical of Israeli-designed terror attacks.  They carried out one like this in Israel a few years ago across the street from the hotel of a visiting American diplomat to press their point.  The victims were mainly Russian immigrants.  Because it is much easier for the Zionists to carry out large scale false-flag terror attacks in these occupied nations there might be a terror attack on U.S. forces that compels Obama to send more forces.  What the architects of the "War on Terror" clearly need to do is try to get U.S. and Euopean public opinion behind their fraudulent war in Afghanistan.  They would be aiming to carry out a false-flag attack that decisively swings public opinion behind a massive increase in troops on the ground in occupied Afghanistan.

Why has Obama waited so long to decide what to do in Afghanistan?  The Zionist-controlled president obviously does not intend to bring the troops home and the status quo is clearly not working.  Obama, who will soon receive the Nobel Peace Prize, and his Zionist handlers are obviously reluctant to send tens of thousands more U.S. troops to a war of occupation that is very unpopular with Americans.  Fearing defeat and "mission failure", the U.S. military, NATO, and the Zionist-controlled media are clamoring for more troops to be sent as soon as possible, but if Obama were to send more troops he would lose even more support among his political base, which is really much weaker than the controlled media would have you believe.

The administration's plan to bring Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged "mastermind of 9-11," to New York City to stand trial may be part of this plan.  Why has it taken the Obama administration one year to come to this decision?  If Obama were truly serious about closing Guantanamo and seeing justice served, he would have made these moves last spring.  A trial for the person said to be Khalid Sheikh Mohammed would provide an ideal possibility for another false-flag terror attack in New York City.  One that killed the  9-11 terror suspects before they had a chance to be thoroughly interrogated in an open trial would probably be the desired outcome for the planners of the terror attack.


The person said to be Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the "mastermind of 9-11," may arrive in New York City before Christmas.  The question is whether he is the real Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who earned an engineering degree in North Carolina, or not.  Is he the same man as the person in the photographs below?  The Santa Claus beard and turban make a positive identification difficult.


Earlier images of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed

One has to remember that the real goal of the war in Afghanistan has nothing to do with democracy or the terrorism of 9-11.  The U.S.-led invasion and occupation is meant to occupy and pacify the country to allow for the construction of the TAPI pipeline to transport the Mossad-owned gas of Turkmenistan to India and China.  When this pipeline is built, the Mossadnik Yosef Maiman and his Israeli partners will become tremendously wealthy selling the gas resources of Turkmenistan, which they own and control. 


The TAPI pipeline will carry Israeli-owned gas of Turkmenistan to India and China bringing huge profits for the Mossad gangsters behind 9-11 and the fraudulent "War on Terror".

The Israelis certainly have not shelved this plan because of the high casualties being suffered by U.S. and NATO forces.  The Israeli terrorists who masterminded 9-11, the invasion of Afghanistan, and the utterly fraudulent "War on Terror" (e.g. Shimon Peres, Benjamin Netanyahu, and Ehud Barak) are at the top of their game -- and running the Israeli government.

The current Israeli government is very close to the Obama administration.  With Rahm Emanuel, the son of a Zionist terrorist, running the White House, one might think that the Israeli government is calling the shots in the Oval Office.  As Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Lally Weymouth, senior editor of Newsweek and The Washington Post  (both owned by her family, the descendants of the Zionist and German Jewish banker Eugene Meyer), in late October 2009:

There is much greater cooperation and transparency between the Obama administration and my government than people know. We speak openly and I greatly appreciate steps taken by the Obama administration against the distorted Goldstone report and their pressure on Iran to stop its military nuclear program as well as the ongoing efforts we are making to re-launch the peace negotiations between us and the Palestinians.


Rahm Emanuel, the son of a Zionist terrorist from the Stern Gang, runs the Obama White House.  The president is kept in an information bubble and handled like a puppet by his Zionist handlers who have managed him since 1992.


David Axelrod was commissioned by Chicago-based Elder of Zion Philip M. Klutznick to be Obama's adviser in 1992.  Axelrod created Obama the candidate by crafting his political strategy and writing his speeches.  He still performs these functions for Obama the president.  But who does Axelrod, the son of a Jewish communist, take his orders from?

Lally Weymouth is the daughter of Katharine (Meyer) Graham and grandaughter of Eugene Isaac Meyer, the Zionist Jew banker of Lazard Freres who served as Chairman of the Federal Reserve from 1930 to 1933 and who bought The Washington Post at a bankruptcy auction in 1933.  Like most U.S. news outlets, both the New York Times and Washington Post are owned by Zionist Jewish families.

Gitmo Gulag Fraud and Chaos

July 16, 2009


An image of the person said to be Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the "mastermind of 9-11," and the feeble-minded scapegoat Ahmed Qadus.  Are they the same person?  I asked Dr. David E. Klett, a retired professor of thermodynamics, who had the real KSM in several of his classes, if he recognized the person said to be KSM. "I did not recognize that person," Klett said.  "I never saw that face before."

The BBC is reporting that the fraudulent Soviet-style military tribunals in Gitmo have fallen into chaos (not a big fall for such a seriously flawed process).  The article, "Chaos besets 9/11 court hearing," reports:

Scenes of chaos have gripped a US military court in Guantanamo Bay where five alleged 9/11 plotters were due to appear together before a judge.  All five, including alleged mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, initially refused to attend the hearing.  The judge rejected prosecution calls for them to be compelled to attend but three did appear after a recess.  The hearing focuses on whether two of the accused are mentally competent to represent themselves...

Thursday's hearing was meant to focus on whether Mr Hawsawi and a fourth defendant, Ramzi Binalshibh, were mentally competent to represent themselves.  The US military lawyer representing Mr Binalshibh said he suffered from a delusional disorder.  When the lawyer went into detail about how he had been deprived of sleep, her microphone was cut off...

The fifth defendant, Mr Sheikh Mohammed, refused to attend the hearing.  Described by US intelligence as "one of history's most infamous terrorists", he earlier admitted being responsible "from A to Z" for 9/11.  Believed to be the number three al-Qaeda leader before his capture in Pakistan in March 2003, he told a pre-trial hearing at Guantanamo in December 2008 that he wanted to plead guilty to all charges against him.

It should be noted that the person who is said by the U.S. government to be Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is clearly not who they say he is.  My research has found that the evidence indicates that he is another person, a feeble-minded person who is being scape-goated as the "mastermind of 9-11."  I have written about this in several articles.  I spoke with a former professor who taught KSM at a university in North Carolina.  Shown the photos of the person said to be KSM, the professor said he had never seen that face before.

Richard Holbrooke and the Zionist War on Terror

July 7, 2009 


Dick Holbrooke in Afghanistan in 2006. 
 
Understanding Holbrooke's mission in Central Asia requires knowing who this "hyperaggressive" Zionist "master of disaster" really is.  War weary Americans who hoped the new Obama administration would change U.S. policies in Iraq and Afghanistan and bring the troops home must be sorely disappointed.  The only Americans coming home these days are those who have died in the senseless conflict. More troops are being sent to fight a war that is understood neither by the American public nor by the people doing the fighting.
 

Americans are coming home from Afghanistan in caskets under the cover of night.
 
Admiral Michael Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, appeared on "Face the Nation" on Sunday, July 5, to discuss U.S. military actions in the Middle East.  During the interview Mullen revealed what he called the real strategy in Afghanistan:  to clear, hold, and build.  The first question asked of Mullen was about the military situation in Afghanistan as the U.S. Marines carry out a large offensive known as Operation Strike of the Sword or Operation Khanjar (Arabic for "dagger"): 

Admiral Mike Mullen:  I suspect it’s going to be tough for a while. And again, we have enough forces there now not just to clear an area but to hold it so we can build after. And that’s really the strategy. 

The logical question to ask Mullen would have been, "What is it that we want to build in Afghanistan?" although John Dickerson of CBS News did not ask.  If building is "really the strategy" in Afghanistan as Admiral Mullen says, what is it that so badly needs to be built? 

WHY ARE WE IN AFGHANISTAN? 

U.S. troops have been in Afghanistan since October 2001 when they were supposedly sent in response to 9-11, although no Afghans were involved in the terror attacks.  The stated aim of the Anglo-American invasion of Afghanistan in 2001 was to find Osama Bin Laden and other Al Qaida members and put them on trial.  The U.S., however, said it had given up its pursuit of Osama Bin Laden years ago.  So why did the U.S. and Britain really invade Afghanistan -- and why are we still there?  Why has President Obama increased troop levels in Afghanistan?  The short answer is the TAPI gas pipeline, which will carry gas from Israeli-owned and managed gas fields in Turkmenistan to Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, and China.
 

The TAPI pipeline needs to cross Helmand province in the south of Afghanistan.

Turkmenistan and Afghanistan are both very rich in gas reserves.  The Turkmen mineral assets are managed by the former Mossad agent Yosef Maiman.  Building the TAPI pipeline is a Zionist pipe dream that will use the mineral wealth of Turkmenistan to benefit Maiman and his partners.  This is the main development project that U.S. policy is trying to accomplish.  Transit fees from the gas pipeline are intended to support the government in Kabul. 
 

Yosef Maiman, Israeli Mossad agent, owns much of the gas of Turkmenistan and controls all of it.
 
Admiral Mullen touched on this development in the interview: 

We’ve got to move to a point where there’s security so that the economic underpinnings can start to move, development, that we can create governance so that the Afghan people can get goods and services consistently from their government. 
 
Are we to believe that the U.S. is fighting an 8-year war in Afghanistan in order to make sure the Afghans can get "goods and services consistently from their government?"  Have we spent hundreds of billions of dollars in Afghanistan so we can build post offices, train stations, and power plants?  What are the "economic underpinnings" that need to "start to move?"  Why would the U.S. government care more about providing "goods and services" to the people of Afghanistan than, say, the people of California? 

Mullen touched only lightly on the subject and CBS News was certainly not asking the questions that would allow Americans to really understand the U.S. strategy in Afghanistan.

"The economic development the generals talk about, including gas pipeline construction, requires stability," Gary Leupp wrote in Counterpunch on July 6, "But Afghanistan, like Iraq, was destabilized precisely by a U.S. attack and occupation in the first place. More ominously, Pakistan has been destabilized by the invasion of the next-door country."  Why are Americans fighting wars in Central Asia for a pipeline from Turkmenistan?

To understand why Obama is pushing the war in Afghanistan, one needs to understand that the Obama administration is really a Zionist-controlled government.  If this were not already abundantly clear, it can be seen by the person appointed to apply U.S. policy in the region.  That person is Richard Charles Albert Holbrooke, one of Obama's first appointments.  Holbrooke, a Zionist Jew and a long-time associate of Henry Kissinger, is the Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan.  Holbrooke is described by State Dept. workers as "abrasive and arrogant."  He is a student of Kissinger-style diplomacy with a "hyperaggressive style," according to Meryl Gordon of New York Magazine. Holbrooke and Kissinger have been friends and co-workers since the early 1960s in Vietnam.  Gordon wrote that Holbrooke is often described as "arrogant, ambitious, pushy, relentless, argumentative, ego-obsessed, social-climbing, and just plain rude." James Hoge, editor of Foreign Affairs said, Holbrooke is brusque and impatient with those who disagree with him. "Dick can't brook argument. He's right, you're wrong."

Holbrooke was a director of Maurice Greenberg's incredibly badly-run A.I.G. insurance company from 2001-2008.  A.I.G. is really a criminal enterprise, indicted on numerous charges, which insured investment banks against losses from the extremely risky financial "instruments" that caused the financial collapse of 2008.  When these risky instruments failed, A.I.G. was bailed out with more than $180 billion of U.S. taxpayer dollars, which it then distributed to the dodgy investment banks it had insured.  A.I.G. has already cost every man, woman, and child in the United States about $600 each.  Holbrooke was a key insider in this tremendous scam. 

Greenberg and A.I.G. are also involved in the terror attacks of 9-11 and the fraudulent "War on Terror" in many ways.  The first plane that struck the World Trade Center, for example, flew directly into the secure computer room of a Greenberg-owned and managed company, Marsh. 

Prior to A.I.G., Holbrooke was a vice chairman at Credit Suisse First Boston.  First Boston was the place where the mortgage-based securities were first created under Laurence D. Fink.  (Fink developed mortgage-based securities at First Boston in the mid-1970s when 9-11 "whistle-blower" Indira Singh worked there on the IT and risk consulting end of the business.) 

On January 22, two days after taking office, Obama named Holbrooke as special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan.  At this point, the U.S. government had already bailed-out Holbrooke's company to the tune of some $180 billion, the largest government bail-out in U.S. history.  Yet two months later, Obama blasted A.I.G., calling their business practices "outrageous" and trying to distance his administration, which includes a former director of A.I.G., from the tremendous cost the A.I.G. bail-out imposed on the U.S. taxpayer:  "Nobody here was responsible for supervising A.I.G. and allowing themselves to put the economy at risk by some of the outrageous behavior that they were engaged in," the president said. 
 

Richard Holbrooke of A.I.G. and George Mitchell were both early Obama appointments. 
 
Obama reportedly did not talk with Holbrooke about the $180 billion bail-out of the company he had been a long-time director of.  Instead he lied by saying no one in his administration was responsible for supervising A.I.G.

Obama's denial is clearly not true.  Holbrooke, an Obama appointee, had his hands deep in the A.I.G. scam for 8 years and had made a good living doing so. 
Fox News reported on March 19, 2009, that Holbrooke made more than $250,000 a year as a director at A.I.G.: 

Holbrooke joined AIG's board in February 2001 and resigned in July 2008, two months before the company nearly collapsed. Over more than seven years as a board member, he may have earned as much as $800,000 in cash and company stock, according to AIG financial documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. 

Since September, AIG has received $180 billion in taxpayer money to keep it from failing and causing more damage to the U.S. economy…

For much of his tenure on the AIG board, Holbrooke had a role in approving salaries and compensation. From 2001 until mid-2005, he was a member of the board's compensation committee. According to AIG financial statements, the committee sets the salary for the company's chief executive officer [Maurice Greenberg] and gives advice on how other senior managers are to be compensated. 

HOLBROOKE AND VIETNAM 

When critics call the conflict in Afghanistan "Obama's Vietnam" they are not far off.  Holbrooke was a key player in the Vietnam war from 1962 to 1969.  His biography concerning Viet Nam looks like this:  Joined Foreign Service US Department State, 1962, served in South Vietnam Saigon, 1963-66; staff member The White House, 1966-67; assigned US Department State; staff Paris Peace Talks on Vietnam, 1968-69. 

From his high-level position in the development of the war in Viet Nam as assistant to ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge, Holbrooke and Henry Kissinger have worked closely together since the early-1960s.Holbrooke was sent to Vietnam in 1962 to serve as an assistant to ambassador Lodge, while Henry Kissinger, a Harvard professor, was the ambassador's adviser. Gordon wrote that Kissinger recalled watching a parade in Saigon from Holbrooke's apartment.

Holbrooke and Kissinger have continued to work very closely together at the American Academy in Berlin, which they founded in 1994.  The academy is located in a lakeside mansion across from the train station in Wannsee.  In 2008, Holbrooke gave the Kissinger award to George H.W. Bush. Why are Holbrooke and Kissinger giving prizes to former U.S. presidents?

In an odd breach of diplomatic protocol, Henry Kissinger was sent by the Obama administration to hold high-level talks with the leaders of Russia in March instead of the Secretary of State.  Why was Kissinger speaking for the United States under the newly-elected Obama administration? Who really makes U.S. foreign policy?

Holbrooke also played a key role in the U.S.-led bombing and subsequent Balkanization of Yugoslavia, in which the formerly prosperous and socialist nation was carved up into ethnic mini-statelets.  The breaking up of Yugoslavia resulted in a significant reduction in the standard of living across the nation.  NATO continues to control the statelet of Kosovo, which was literally ripped off from Serbia along with Trepca, one of the richest mines in Europe. 

The New York Times of May 5, 2009 describes Holbrooke as a key member of the Obama team and says he is being considered as a possible national security adviser. During the disastrous conflict in August between Russia and Georgia, the NYT profile says Holbrooke "was one of the first Americans to fly to Tbilisi to meet with the Georgian leader Mikhail Saakashvili, a friend."  Whatever advice Holbrooke gave his "friend" Saakashvili was clearly bad advice.

Holbrooke, who is called "the bulldozer" by some who know him, is a pushy individual who has been involved at the highest level in one disaster after another since the early 1960s.  Now he is the point man in a disastrous and senseless war in Central Asia, which has gotten much worse since he joined the effort in January 2009.  Why is Holbrooke put into such positions of power in the first place?  The man, after all, has a long record of creating mega-disasters. 
 

Holbrooke visited refugees who had been driven from Pakistan's Swat valley in early June.  "Are you glad the army came in, even though you were driven out of your homes?" Holbrooke reportedly asked the refugees.
 
To understand why Holbrooke is put into these positions, it is necessary to understand who he really is.  Although it is not reported in biographical sketches, Holbrooke belongs to a very highly-connected family that is related to the Rothschild and Guggenheim families, among others.  It is his German Jewish family connections that have placed him in positions of power in the U.S. government. 

Richard Charles Albert Holbrooke was born April 24, 1941, to Dan Holbrooke and Gertrudis "Trudi" Moos Holbrooke.  Dan, his father, was a Polish Jewish immigrant who changed his name to Holbrooke.  Biographical sketches claim that Dan's original surname has been lost, which is very unlikely.  Dan Holbrooke's real name has been hidden in the same way that the family has sought to hide its Jewish roots.  But why would the Holbrooke family want to hide its Jewishness? 
Celia Mcgee of the New York Observer wrote about Holbrooke in 1998:

The son of Dan and Trudi Holbrooke, raised in Scarsdale, N.Y., schooled at Brown University, he was a son of assimilated, upper-class Jews who fled Nazi racism. "I've been with him plenty of times when his Jewishness was obvious," said his friend Stanley Karnow, the journalist and author, "and he jokes about it plenty, too. It just isn't an issue with him, or Kati." 

Holbrooke's father, whose real name is not known, died when Holbrooke was 16.  His mother comes from the influential merchant Moos family of Baden-Württemberg in southern Germany.  The Moos family is engaged in leather trading and moved their business to Argentina in 1922.  Holbrooke's grandfather Samuel Moos was born in Reutlingen in 1889 and married Valesca Friedheim of Zurich.  Samuel and Valesca lived in Buenos Aires where the leather-trading business is run in the name of the company founder, Elias Moos S.A. 

The Moos family, which is related by marriage to the Rothschild, Guggenheim, Weil, Marx, and Einstein families, traveled frequently by ship between Buenos Aires, New York, and Europe.  There is even a seminar room at Tel Aviv University named in honor of Samuel and Valesca Moos.  The Moos family collected nearly 1 million Swiss francs from Switzerland in 2007 for money they claimed to have lost in accounts during the war, which was multiplied by a factor of 12.

By understanding who Richard Holbrooke really is, what his agenda is, and who he is working for, we can see that there is a secret Zionist agenda behind the war in Afghanistan.  With the appointment of Holbrooke, who is known as "the bulldozer" to oversee U.S. policy in the region, the 8-year-old war which has now spread to Pakistan is bound to become much worse.  The strategic goal of the war in Afghanistan has nothing to do with terrorism and never did.   Officials and media who claim that it is are simply lying.

Obama's Deception - 9-11 and Afghanistan

June 5, 2009


St. Michael the Archangel slaying the devil, the father of all lies and deception.

All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.
- Thomas Jefferson 
 
President Barack Obama's speech in Cairo on June 4 was a carefully prepared speech meant to explain the administration's policies in the Middle East to the people of the region.  I listened to see how he would explain his controversial decision to increase the number of U.S. troops and military activity in Afghanistan and Pakistan, a decision I strongly oppose.  What I heard in Obama's speech about Afghanistan was very discouraging in that it revealed the appalling continuation of the blatant 9-11 deception by the new administration.  The war and occupation of Afghanistan was the first subject Obama addressed.  The following extract is the essence of what Obama said about 9-11 and the war in Afghanistan and Pakistan: 

The first issue that we have to confront is violent extremism in all its forms. In Ankara, I made clear that America is not and never will be at war with Islam.  We will, however, relentlessly confront violent extremists who pose a grave threat to our security because we reject the same thing that people of all faiths reject, the killing of innocent men, women, and children. And it is my first duty as president to protect the American people. 

The situation in Afghanistan demonstrates America's goals and our need to work together. Over seven years ago, the United States pursued Al Qaida and the Taliban with broad international support. We did not go by choice. We went because of necessity. I'm aware that there's still some who would question or even justify the offense of 9/11. But let us be clear. Al Qaida killed nearly 3,000 people on that day. 

The victims were innocent men, women, and children from America and many other nations who had done nothing to harm anybody. And yet Al Qaida chose to ruthlessly murder these people, claimed credit for the attack, and even now states their determination to kill on a massive scale. They have affiliates in many countries and are trying to expand their reach. 
These are not opinions to be debated. These are facts to be dealt with. Make no mistake, we do not want to keep our troops in Afghanistan. We see no military -- we seek no military bases there. It is agonizing for America to lose our young men and women. It is costly and politically difficult to continue this conflict. 

We would gladly bring every single one of our troops home if we could be confident that there were not violent extremists in Afghanistan and now Pakistan determined to kill as many Americans as they possibly can. But that is not yet the case. 

And that's why we're partnering with a coalition of 46 countries. And despite the costs involved, America's commitment will not weaken
.

This is how Obama explained the U.S. war effort in Afghanistan and Pakistan:  As a necessary confrontation with 45 nations against the violent extremists behind the attacks of 9-11.  We would bring our troops home, he said, if there were no "violent extremists" in those countries "determined to kill as many Americans as they possibly can." 
 

What is the real reason behind Obama's war in Afghanistan?
 
AFGHANS DO NOT TRUST OBAMA OR U.S.
 
The people of Afghanistan do not like President Obama or trust the United States.  Stan Grant, a CNN correspondent in Kabul, visited an Afghan university (madrassa) to see how the middle and upper-class students reacted to Obama and his speech in Cairo.  Not a single student liked Obama or supported his policies in their occupied nation.

If Obama had a good policy why has our society not developed in the past five years, one student asked.  Another wanted to know why the U.S. and NATO had killed 1,000 Afghan civilians.  "What was the matter with them? he asked.   

"DEMOCRACY" IN AFGHANISTAN - CODE FOR OCCUPATION

"Zoya," a member of the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA), received international acclaim with the 2003 publication her dramatic life story: "Zoya's Story: An Afghan Woman's Battle for Freedom," with John Follain and Rita Cristofari.  In 2008, Zoya was interviewed in Berlin by Elsa Rassbach.  Zoya explained how she viewed the U.S. and NATO occupation of Afghanistan:

RAWA supports the call for the withdrawal of the U.S. and NATO troops because occupation is not a solution. They are constantly killing civilians, even at a wedding party. Do you think we are not human beings and don't have hearts? What would Americans do if an occupier were killing so many civilians in the U.S.? …

In 2001, the U.S. and its allies occupied Afghanistan under the beautiful slogans of "war on terror," "women's rights," "liberation" and "democracy." But when they installed the brutal and criminal warlords after the fall of the Taliban, everyone knew that Afghanistan had once again become a chessboard for world powers. The plight of our people, and especially of women, has been misused to legitimize the foreign military presence in our country.

Afghan people have been badly betrayed by the U.S. and NATO in the past few years. Despite billions in aid, Afghan people are living under awful conditions that are worse than they were under the Taliban medieval rule. Afghanistan still faces a women's rights tragedy, and the everyday hardships of our masses are beyond imagination.

Everyone knows that the U.S., a superpower, together with the biggest military pact in the world, NATO, could in a matter of days, if not hours, defeat the Taliban and arrest Mullah Omer and Osama. But today they need such enemies to justify keeping their military machine in Afghanistan.

We don't want their so-called liberation and democracy. If these troops do not withdraw, we are sure that the Afghan people will have no other option but to rise up against them. Our people are already deeply fed up with the situation. The jokes being made in Afghanistan are that the Taliban is getting the most from this situation. 

THE 9-11 DECEPTION 

Al Qaida was behind the mass murder of thousands of people on 9-11, Obama said.  This is not an opinion to be debated, he added.  "These are facts to be dealt with." 

If the Obama administration were truly concerned about facts, he might take note of the disturbing fact that not a single 9-11 victim's case has gone to trial after nearly 8 years.  If the case against Osama Bin Laden and his agents were solid and based on facts, why has the evidence not been presented in an open trial in a U.S. court?  The military is supposedly holding Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the "confessed" mastermind of 9-11, in Guantanamo.  Why is this mastermind of terror not put on trial in an open court?  Why have the surviving airplane parts not been identified?  Why has the evidence of thermite in the collapsed towers not been addressed? 

One of the 9-11 facts the Obama administration will have to deal with is the evidence of super-thermite in the dust of the World Trade Center.  This thin layer of super-thermite was evidently used to pulverize the concrete in the twin towers on 9-11.  The people who applied tens of tons of thermite to the interiors of the twin towers are, in fact, directly responsible for the murder of 3,000 people on 9-11.  If Al Qaida had teams of men spraying super-thermite and placing explosive charges in the buildings leased and owned by Larry Silverstein and the Israeli commando Frank Lowy, let's see the evidence.  Otherwise, let's find out who really put the super-thermite in the twin towers. 

The United States went to war in Afghanistan out of "necessity," Obama said, yet the American public has not been given any solid evidence to prove that the Taliban of Afghanistan had anything to do with 9-11.  Why then is the Zionist-run Obama administration sending more troops to Afghanistan?  And why have they expanded the war into Pakistan? 

I have discussed in several articles the powerful Zionists behind the Obama White House.  Obama was sponsored and molded since 1992 to be the first black president of the United States by the daughter of Philip Morris Klutznick, the former president of the B'nai B'rith and mega Zionist from Chicago.  The chief of staff of the White House is Rahm Emanuel, an Israeli national whose father was a member of a Zionist terrorist organization in Palestine that was allied with Nazi Germany.  These are a few real facts, not opinions, that need to be dealt with. 

Understanding the Zionist nature of the Obama administration, the question that must be asked is why is the administration expanding the war in Afghanistan and Pakistan?  The American people certainly have no real interest in Afghanistan or Pakistan and the Afghans and Pakistanis have no real interest in America.  There must be a Zionist strategic goal in controlling these two Central Asian nations, but what is it? 

As I pointed out in my article from 2001, "The Great Game:  The War for Caspian Oil and Gas," the Israelis are deeply engaged in the region: 

Turkmenistan and Azerbijan are also both closely allied with Israeli commercial interests and Israeli military intelligence. In Turkmenistan, a former Israeli intelligence agent, Yosef A. Maiman, president of Merhav Group of Israel, is the official negotiator and policy maker responsible for developing the energy resources of Turkmenistan. 


"This is the Great Game all over," Maiman told the Wall Street Journal about his role in furthering the "geopolitical goals of both the U.S. and Israel in Central Asia.  "We are doing what U.S. and Israeli policy could not achieve," he said, "Controlling the transport route is controlling the product." 

"Those that control the oil routes out of Central Asia will impact all future direction and quantities of flow and the distribution of revenues from new production," said energy expert James Dorian recently in Oil & Gas Journal on September 10, 2001. 

Foreign business in Turkmenistan is dominated by Maiman's Merhav Group, according to the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (WRMEA). Maiman, who was made a citizen of Turkmenistan by presidential decree, serves as Turkmenistan's official negotiator for its gas pipeline, special ambassador, and right-hand man for the authoritarian President Saparmurad Atayevich Niyazov, a former Politburo member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. 

The Merhav Group of Israel officially represents the Turkmen government and has brokered all of the energy projects in Turkmenistan, contracts worth many billions of dollars. 

ISRAEL & THE TAPI PIPELINE 

The main Zionist goal in Afghanistan and Pakistan is to "pacify" these nations to allow the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) gas pipeline to be built.  This line, once completed, could be extended to China.  This project is the pipe dream of Joseph A. Maiman (a.k.a. Josef, Yosef, Yossi), one of the most powerful men in Israel. 
 

Yosef A. Maiman
 
The Jerusalem Post of 23 July 2004, described Maiman as one of the leading miners of the gas of Central Asia, specifically Turkmenistan: 
 
Though his sprawling multi-billion-dollar empire stretches from Channel 10 TV, where he is a partner, to Central Asian gas fields, where he is a leading miner, Maiman was born humbly, in a displaced persons camp in Germany, and grew up in Peru. 

Maiman's Merhav Group started off in 1976 with Third World debt-financing, but later diversified into agriculture, energy solutions and telecoms. Today, it is the Republic of Turkmenistan's single largest foreign partner. 

Just two weeks ago, the Israeli foreign ministry announced it would open a new embassy in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, "saying it was a natural step in burgeoning bilateral ties, and reflected a new momentum in Israel's overall ties with the Central Asian countries," according to the Jerusalem Post of 21 May 2009. 

Turkmenistan is reported to be "the second largest holder of gas reserves in the world, with some 28 trillion cubic meters of proven gas reserves," second only to Russia.  The "former" Israeli Mossad agent Joseph A. Maiman is reportedly the owner or co-owner of much of that gas and has been the key person managing the development of Turkmenistan's gas fields.  If the TAPI pipeline were to be completed, the Israelis connected with Maiman and Merhav would collect tens of billions of dollars by selling the gas of Turkmenistan to Pakistan, India, and China.  This is certainly one of the key Israeli strategic goals in Afghanistan and Pakistan.  The pipeline is meant to pass through Kandahar, the area where Canadians are serving and which Canada is obliged to defend until 2012. 
 

The planned route of the TAPI pipeline
 
Mr. Maiman is also a business partner of Rupert Murdoch and Ronald Lauder.  In November 2002, Yossi Maiman and the former head of the Mossad, Shabtai Shavit, launched a new political party with the former head of the Shin Bet, Ya'acov Perry.  These people are all closely tied to the false-flag terror attacks of 9-11.  Their roles are described in my chapter entitled, "The Architecture of Terror." 

To really understand why the Obama administration is sending more troops to Afghanistan and waging war in Pakistan it is essential to understand what is at stake and who will benefit from the TAPI pipeline.  Obama's speech in Cairo today was a blatant deception about the real purposes of the war in Central Asia.

OBAMA IN DRESDEN

Obama flew to Germany after speaking in Cairo and landed in Dresden, the Saxon capital city on the Elbe.  Dresden was completely obliterated in a huge Allied fire-bombing attack on Valentines Day and Ash Wednesday 1945.  Eyewitnesses to the holocaust of Dresden estimate that more than 500,000 people, including many refugees who were sheltering in the "safe" city, were killed in the attack in which the entire inner city was incinerated.  Obama made a short visit to the re-built Frauenkirche and did not even address the painful subject of the Allied war crime that killed so many innocent lives in Dresden.  He then went on to visit the Buchenwald concentration camp in the outskirts of Weimar where Elie Wiesel spoke at great length about the 11,000 Jews who are said to have perished in the work camp.   CNN played up the fact that the camp had a crematorium with three ovens, but it did not visit the mountain of rubble in Dresden or the huge mass grave where the remains of thousands of the victims of one of the most cruel war crimes are buried.  Sixty-five years later, the controlled media still ignores this subject.

I spent a month in Dresden and visited Buchenwald.  I discovered that the death rate for German prisoners held in Buchenwald during the Soviet occupation was much higher than the death rate in the camp during the war.  Here are a few extracts from my Letter from Buchenwald:

According to a U.S. Army report dated May 25, 1945, a total of 238,980 prisoners had been held at Buchenwald in the period from July 1937 to April 1945. Of this number 34,375 died. This report, which shows a mortality rate of some 14 percent, was based on camp records confiscated by the U.S. Army.

Shortly after the U.S. Army "liberated" Buchenwald, it was turned over to the Soviet Union and became the so-called Special Camp No. 2 from 1945 to 1950. As the guide book, written by Sabine and Harry Stein says, "Prisoners moved into the barracks again hardly four weeks after the last survivors had left the National Socialist concentration camp in Buchenwald. Buchenwald became a place of isolation and death for another four and a half years....

"Hunger and isolation seriously affected everyday life. Hunger was almost omnipresent. Mass deaths ensued when the restricted rations were cut temporarily.

"More than one third of the total number of 122,671 prisoners died in the course of being there," the guide says about the post-war Soviet prison camp. "The victims of Buchenwald Special Camp were buried in mass graves. Their relatives did not receive any official notification.

"The history of Special Camp No. 2 and the existence of mass graves was subject to taboo in the German Democratic Republic," the guide says.

The official mortality rate in the Soviet camps during the post-war period was more than twice that of Buchenwald during the war. According to camp records kept by the Soviet Union, the Soviet prison camp system in Germany held 122,671 prisoners between 1945 and 1950 of which 42,889 died. This is a death rate of nearly 35 percent. In addition, 756 persons were executed.
To understand what really happened in both of these places, I recommend reading my articles from Buchenwald and Dresden.
