Dr. Rania Masri’s Powerful Speech at “Crisis in Gaza and West Bank: Context and Action”

Listen to a stunning speech by Palestinian rights activist Rania Masri. It’s about time more than one diaspora Palestinian spoke equally fearlessly, forcefully, loud and clear, unapologetically, powerfully and correctly and with pride in support of the Palestinian Resistance group Hamas besieged in Gaza. It’s long, long overdue.

Those who march behind genocide should be ashamed of themselves, not those who fight for what is right.

ISIS, Israel and US duplicity

Mainstream media wants us to believe ISIS sprung up out of a hole in the ground and became powerful enough to take over large cities without any assistance from the big powers. The ineptitude of that narrative is an insult to everyone’s intelligence.

The US government claims it has launched several air strikes against ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) militants in Iraq. These are the same ISIS militants that the US and its client states are supporting in Syria; the same breed and stock of militants they let loose like wild dogs to lynch Gaddafi and wreak havoc in Libya.

It is traditional US diplomacy to play a double game — on the one hand training, arming and financing terrorists to overthrow or destabilize non-compliant governments, while at the same time condemning those same malcontents when it is convenient to do so.

Paul Craig Roberts: Putin should meet privately with European Leaders

Putin could tell Europeans that by disassociating from Washington’s foreign policy and adopting foreign policies that serve their own interests instead of Washington’s, Europeans have nothing to lose but their chains of vassalage.

Putin could explain to Europeans that Russia is prepared to guarantee Europe’s security and, therefore, that Europe does not need Washington’s guarantee against a nonexistent Russian threat.

If this very reasonable and diplomatic approach to Europe fails, then Russia and China know that they must prepare for war.

Libya: Mystery jets fly over Tripoli, attack militia positions

Tripoli: Two unidentified aircrafts roared over Libya's capital before dawn on Monday as loud explosions were heard, days after new clashes between militias prompted hundreds of people to flee.

A statement by the provisional government, which lacks any real authority, said it was not known whose aircraft had attacked militia positions.

However, an aide to rogue general Khalifa Haftar, who has launched an offensive against Islamists in second city Benghazi, said the aircraft had been sent by him.

Saqr Jarouchi, also a dissident general, later told AFP: "Those were our planes that launched raids."

But an air force unit that has refused to join Haftar's offensive in the eastern city of Benghazi dismissed the claim, saying the aircraft were "foreign, not Libyan

Unidentified warplanes bomb militia in Libyan capital -government

Unidentified warplanes bombed militia positions in the Libyan capital Tripoli on Monday, the government said, in what could mark a sharp escalation of fighting between armed factions that has thrown the North African state into anarchy.

Several Libyan TV channels said planes targeted bases of militiamen from Misrata who have been battling brigades from the western Zintan region to gain control of Tripoli in Libya's worst violence since Muammar Gaddafi was toppled in 2011.

MH370 and MH17 — Vanishing point…

Follow the engine wreckage. Follow the cockpit wreckage. Follow the motive. One cannot even imagine the tectonic geopolitical plates clashing were the Kiev regime to be deemed responsible. It would be the vanishing point for the whole – warped – notion of the Empire of Chaos’s “indispensable” exceptionalism.

First, passenger airliner MH370 vanished from Planet Earth. Then MH370 vanished from the news cycle. First, MH17 was shot down by “Putin’s missile” – as Planet Earth was told. Then MH17 vanished from the news cycle.

Where’s Baudrillard when we need him? Had he been alive, the dervish of simulacra would have already deconstructed these two Malaysian planes as mirror images; from absolute vanishing to maximum exposure, then vanished again. They might as well have been abducted – and shot – by aliens. Now you see them, now you don’t.

Islamic State Is Covert US Intelligence Operation

WASHINGTON, August 13 (RIA Novosti), Lyudmila Chernova - The Islamic State (IS) is a covert intelligence operation by the United States which aims at setting a predicate for further escalation in Iraq, Francis Boyle, a constitutional scholar and law professor at University of Illinois, told RIA Novosti.

"All the implications so far in the public record are that ISIS [IS] is a covert US intelligence operation," Boyle told RIA Novosti Tuesday. "Head of ISIS Abu Bakr Baghdadi spent five years in an American detention facility, and also three of the four military commanders were also in detention by the US forces. So, my guess is that ISIS is indeed a covert US military intervention to set precedent for US escalation in Iraq."

Libyan Assembly Asks for UN Help as Militias Clash

Libya’s parliament in UN plea for ‘international intervention’

Libya’s newly elected parliament has asked the United Nations to intervene as militia related violence rages across the country.

Amidst the worst violence since the 2011 ousting of Muammar Gaddafi, Libyan lawmakers met in the eastern port-city of Tobruk, which is away from the fighting going on in the capital Tripoli and in Libya’s second largest city Benghazi.

The MPs passed a vote by 111 out of 124 in favor from 124 MPs present asking the UN Security Council for help.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Libya is taking itself back from the installed US puppet regime. The US cannot sell a new invasion of Libya to the American people. They are having a tough time selling a new invasion of Iraq! So the US puppet regime is going to ask the United Nations to help them hang onto their stolen loot.

For many decades, Israel waged genocidal war against millions of defenseless Palestinians with impunity.

Accountability is long overdue. High crimes against peace were committed. Culpable Israeli officials must be punished to the full extent of the law.

Hillary Clinton’s Criminality in Benghazi

Last week, former Secretary of State and presumed Democratic 2016 presidential nominee Hillary Clinton writes that her handling of the Benghazi crisis of September 11, 2012 actually provides more impetus for a White House run.

Rather than trotting around the book circuit claiming the mantle of White House frontrunner thanks to her inaction and malfeasance in Benghazi, she should be sitting in the defendant’s chair in a court of law.

The question for Hillary Clinton is not whether she should be president. The question is whether she should be in prison.

Washington Threatens The World — Paul Craig Roberts

The consequence of Washington’s reckless and irresponsible political and military interventions in Iraq, Libya, and Syria has been to unleash evil. The various sects that lived in peace under the rule of Saddam Hussein, Gaddafi, and Assad are butchering one another, and a new group, ISIS, is in the process of creating a new state out of parts of Iraq and Syria.

The turmoil brought into the Middle East by the Bush and Obama regimes has meant death and displacement for millions and untold future deaths. As I write 40,000 Iraqis are stranded on a mountain top without water awaiting death at the hands of ISIS, a creation of US meddling.

The CIA Must Tell the Truth About My Rendition At 12 Years Old

This week, the Senate Intelligence Committee is fighting the White House and the CIA over pre-publication redactions made to a Congressional report on the agency's use of torture and rendition. This debate is very personal for Khadija al-Saadi, who at 12 years old was rendered from Hong Kong to Libya in a joint CIA-MI6 operation in 2004.

Her father, an opponent of Libyan dictator Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, was the main target of the operation. The family accepted a settlement from the British government in 2012 for its involvement.

What the hell is an Israeli-American?

“Anyone who lives with rocket launchers installed or terror tunnels burrowed in or around the vicinity of their home cannot be considered an innocent civilian.” This was written by an “Israeli-American”.

One is tempted to ask, what the hell is an Israeli-American, where is his allegiance, his loyalty, his respect? Surely such shared allegiances are half of the US problems.

Whereas what was said above may be seen on the surface as a reasonable comment in the Times of Israel, compare the situation in reverse, in or around the vicinity of a Palestinian’s home……………

Western plutocracy goes bear hunting

The post-Cold War status quo in Eastern Europe, not to mention in Western Europe, is now dead.

In the US, and a great deal of the EU, a monstrous grotesquerie has developed, packaging Putin as the new Stalinist Osama bin Laden. So far, his strategy on Ukraine was to be patient – what I called Vlad Lao Tzu – watching the Kiev gang hang themselves while trying to sit down with the EU in a civilized manner working for a political solution.

Now we may be facing a game changer, because the mounting evidence, which Glazyev and Russian intel relayed to Putin, points to Ukraine as a battlefield; a concerted drive for regime change in Moscow; a concerted drive aiming for a destabilized Russia; and even the possibility of a definitive provocation.

France evacuates French and British expats from Libya

The French government says it has evacuated French and British nationals from Libya, as battles rage between government forces and militias.

A French diplomatic source said 40 French nationals, including the ambassador, had been evacuated by ship along with seven British nationals.

France's embassy in Tripoli has been closed temporarily, the French foreign ministry said on its website.

Libya has been gripped by instability since the 2011 uprising.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There was no uprising in 2011. There was a US-sponsored overthrow of the government of Gaddafi, to end the threat of the Gold Dinar and force Libya to sell their oil only for US dollars. The Libyan people have decided to take their nation back from its US puppet ruler just as the people of Iraq are doing, and Iran did in 1979.

Still Torn by Factional Fighting, Post-Revolt Libya Is Coming Undone

For weeks, rival Libyan militias had been pounding one another’s positions with artillery, mortar rounds and rockets in a desperate fight to control the international airport in the capital, Tripoli. Then suddenly, early Saturday morning, the fighting just stopped.

The pause came as United States military warplanes circled overhead, providing air cover for a predawn evacuation of the American Embassy’s staff. Apparently fearing the planes, the militias held their fire just long enough for the ambassador and her staff to reach the Tunisian border — a reminder to Libyans of how even their most powerful allies were incapable of putting out their incendiary feuds.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is really happening in Libya is a replay of what happened in Iran in 1979 and is also happening in Iraq. The people are tired of their imposed US puppet rulers and are taking their nation back. But this is a reality the New York Times (who assured us all that Saddam had nuclear weapons) dares not report.

US evacuates Libya embassy

The US has evacuated its Libyan embassy staff under air cover as they faced a "real risk" from fierce fighting around Tripoli airport.

The announcement came just hours after the country's interim government warned that the clashes between militia vying for control of the strategic airport were threatening to tear Libya apart.

It was around 5am on Saturday (local time) when the evacuation began, with the sky over the capital filled with the sound of military jets and helicopters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

America's war to force the world back onto Bretton-Woods and the Petro-dollar is already failing. The people of Libya are taking back their country from the US puppet regime. So are the people of Iraq. The US is barely clinging to Afghanistan, which is why Obama broke his promise to bring our kids home. These are repeats of Iran in 1979, when the Iranian people kicked out their US puppet ruler, the Shah.

The US is not following an exit strategy here for the simple reason they do not have one. The petro-dollar war, which seeks to force all the world's resources to be traded only for the US dollar, is an all or nothing deal. When the US loses it, as they clearly are, the US financial system, grown lazy and dependent on that mafia-like piece of the action they get from all global commerce, will collapse and take Washington DC with it. Somewhere between now and final capitulation, I expect DC will resort to their nuclear arsenal in a final strike against the Russian Ruble and the Chinese Yuan which are already displacing the US dollar in global trade and banking.

The money-junkies really #$%^ed up a good planet!

Clashes between Libyan army troops and anti-government militia groups in the eastern city of Benghazi have left 16 people dead and 81 injured.

“Most of the dead and injured are soldiers. Three civilians, including an Egyptian, were killed when a rocket hit their house,” AFP quoted a hospital source as saying.

Fighting broke out on Monday, when militants attacked an army base and clashed with government troops and forces loyal to retired General Khalifa Haftar. Haftar launched a military offensive in the country’s east on May 16, saying that he wants to crush the militants and “establish stability in Libya.”

Heavy fighting breaks out near Libya's Tripoli airport, seven dead

Heavy fighting broke out between rival militias vying for control of Libya's main airport on Sunday, killing at least seven people and forcing a halt of all flights in the worst fighting in the capital for six months.

Explosions and anti-aircraft gunfire were heard from early morning on the airport road and other parts of Tripoli until the situation seemed to calm down in the late afternoon.

Residents said that militiamen from the northwestern region of Zintan who had controlled the airport came under fire, and local TV footage suggested that the attacking rebels were from the western city of Misrata.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is really going on is that the US puppet government installed after Gaddafi was killed (along with the Gold Dinar) has lost control of Libya and regardless of which faction finally seizes power, Libya will cease selling their oil only for the US dollar.

The US war to force the world back to Bretton-Woods and the Petro-dollar is already being lost.

Benghazi attack suspect Ahmed Abu Khattala pleads not guilty

A Libyan militia leader pleaded not guilty in a US federal court on Saturday to a terrorism charge in the 2012 attack on the US diplomatic compound in Benghazi that killed four Americans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

FOX News is reporting that Ahmed Abu Khattala has been cooperating with his FBI interrogators, but that he "has not been forthcoming", meaning he has not given them any information that actually links him to the attack in Benghazi.

This may well turn out to be yet another botched PR stunt by a desperate White House, akin to the Bowe Bergdahl affair. Big publicity splash about bringing the hero (or villain) to America, only to find out you don't quite have the hero (or villain) the White House thought they did!

This is starting to look like more of the same.

How is Libya today? If one denied the existence of hell, they need not look further than Libya to observe a case of hell on Earth. Libya as a functioning, cohesive state has virtually ceased to exist, having been replaced by a myriad of conflicting factions divided on tribal and religious lines. While mainstream media tends to obscure the identity of these factions and their connection to western imperialists, Eric Draitser in his analysis, “Benghazi, the CIA, and the War in Libya” shows the beyond the fractious infighting, both primary factions engaging in direct combat have been beneficiaries of the NATO imperialist powers in their systematic aggression against the Libyan state.

Secret U.S. raid that captured Benghazi suspect violated our sovereignty, Libya says

Libya on Wednesday condemned U.S. special forces’ arrest of a man on its soil suspected of masterminding a deadly Islamist militant attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, describing the detention as a violation of Libyan sovereignty.

In the first official reaction from Tripoli, Justice Minister Saleh al-Marghani said the suspect, Ahmed Abu Khatallah, should be returned to Libya and tried there.

“We had no prior notification. We did not to expect the U.S. to upset our political scene,” Marghani told a news conference.

He said Khatalah had been wanted by Libyan authorities for questioning but a lack of security had prevented this.

Said al Saoud, spokesman for the foreign ministry, said:”This attack on Libya sovereignty happened at a time when Benghazi is suffering from many problems.”

U.S. captures Ahmed Abu Khatallah — suspected Benghazi ringleader — in secret raid

The United States said on Tuesday it had captured a suspected ringleader of the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, a raid that killed four Americans including the U.S. ambassador, and ignited a political firestorm in Washington.

Rear Admiral John Kirby, the Pentagon press secretary, said U.S. military troops, working with law enforcement personnel, captured Ahmed Abu Khatallah on Sunday in Libya and were holding him at a secure location outside the country.

A U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Khatallah was being held aboard an American ship after he was grabbed on the outskirts of Benghazi in an operation carried out by U.S. special operations forces.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to the White House: distraction by misdirection is no longer working on the American people, folks.

This guy may very well wind up being some schmuck patsy, who had nothing to do with the deaths at Benghazi, but will be "persuaded" by his captors (waterboarding?!? cutting his private parts? Drugging? Sleep depriving? Stress positions? Brutally kicking and punching? All of the above, simultaneously?) to say ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING supporting the official White House narrative.

But you see, it will not work; and it will not work because this Administration has lost any small shred of credibility it might have had, and the American people no longer believe a word you say.

With IRSgate (now reaching critical mass because of the "missing" IRS emails); APgate; VAgate; Benghazigate,Ukrainegate; Obamacaregate; an economy STILL on the skids, 6 years into Obama's presidency; and the reality that the US has re-invaded Iraq as of yesterday, the track record of performance, on promises by this administration, is absolutely, breathtakingly, lousy.

U.S. captures Benghazi suspect in secret raid

U.S. Special Operations forces captured one of the suspected ringleaders of the terrorist attacks in Benghazi in a secret raid in Libya over the weekend, the first time one of the accused perpetrators of the 2012 assault has been apprehended, according to U.S. officials.

The officials said Ahmed Abu Khattala was captured Sunday near Benghazi by American troops, working alongside the FBI, following months of planning, and was now in U.S. custody “in a secure location outside Libya.” The officials said there were no casualties in the operation, and that all U.S. personnel involved have safely left Libya.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This Ahmed Abu Khattala is likely being coached to reinforce the official US Government story about Benghazi, but mostly to distract Americans and the corporate media from what is going on in Iraq and Ukraine.

Benghazi Filmmaker CONFIRMED to be an Agent of Eric Holder Justice Department

The producer of the anti-Muhammad video the Obama administration blamed for the Benghazi attacks is actually a confirmed agent of Eric Holder’s Justice Department.

The damning trail of evidence begins when a fictitious narrative was concocted by the FBI to lure the courts that Nakoula (the Filmmaker, aka Yousef) was supposed to help the FBI catch Eiad Salameh, his partner in crimes for many years. Yet, the deal was never fulfilled and Eiad was let go by the Feds in 2011 as Shoebat.com revealed in a firsthand account never before reported, including a recorded conversation between Nakoula and Shoebat.com in which the filmmaker defended Eiad, the very man he was supposed to help the FEDS catch!

US spy agencies heard Benghazi attackers using State Dept. cell phones to call terrorist leaders

The terrorists who attacked the U.S. consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 used cell phones, seized from State Department personnel during the attacks, and U.S. spy agencies overheard them contacting more senior terrorist leaders to report on the success of the operation, multiple sources confirmed to Fox News.

The disclosure is important because it adds to the body of evidence establishing that senior U.S. officials in the Obama administration knew early on that Benghazi was a terrorist attack, and not a spontaneous protest over an anti-Islam video that had gone awry, as the administration claimed for several weeks after the attacks.

Andrea Mitchell not buying State Dept.’s spin on Bergdahl Swap

MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell appeared visibly irritated with State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf on Monday amid her efforts to suggest the Osama bin Laden raid serves as a precedent for a national security matter that is too sensitive to allow members of Congress to be briefed on its details. Harf even suggested that Mitchell and others were attempting to “recreate” the history of the bin Laden raid by insisting that members were briefed on it before it was executed.

Surprise Video Changes Syria “Timeline”

Al Jazeera’s Shaping of the Syrian Story

Of all the myths obstructing the honest portrayal of events in Syria this past year, none has been more fiercely guarded by regime-change advocates than this one stark falsehood:

Myth – the Syrian regime has only been shooting unarmed, peaceful protestors until very recently when opposition groups finally decided to arm themselves in self-defense.

In Defense of Helen Thomas: What’s Wrong With History?

Helen Thomas’s recent request to purchase a table at the upcoming White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) annual dinner has been rejected.

In a comment on that story I said, “It’s hard to imagine anything more wrong than this.”

I base my opinion on the fact that the 91-year-old Thomas, a former WHCA president, is unique among American journalists, having covered 10 different presidential administrations in a career stretching back to Dwight Eisenhower.

It is because of Thomas as much as anyone else that women were first included at the WHCA dinner since, as the WHCA’s website mentions:
