Abu Zubaydah, alleged 'Al Qaeda' mastermind, is a CIA veteran

WMR has learned from an informed source knowledgeable about the detention and torture of U.S. detainees in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, that imprisoned “Al Qaeda” leader Abu Zubaydah, born in Saudi Arabia and raised until he was a teen on the West Bank where he was also active in demonstrations against the illegal Israeli occupation, was a paid agent of the CIA while in Afghanistan from 1991 to 1992 fighting with the mujaheddin against the Afghan communist government and its Soviet military allies.

9/11 Metastasizing: the Left's Co-Dependency

If I have not already committed punishable perfidy here, I now offer no theories, conspiratorial or otherwise, but simply the following citation of officiously endorsed empiricism. As Kos repeats the hackneyed gem in his online Rules: “Extraordinary claims demand extraordinary proof.” Well, here it is:

Firm evidence of nano-thermite residue in four distinct WTC dust samples. From a paper published in the peer-reviewed Open Chemical Physics Journal by dissident physicist Stephen Jones (our own Andrei Sakharov) and eight colleagues (summary here: http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=13049 . Jones states it was the most rigorous peer-review he had ever undergone, in a long and distinguished career. So far, none of the dependable debunkers have disputed this research—that would perhaps draw too much undesired attention to it. So what does it mean?

First, it provides an explanation for two anomalies in the Twin Towers’ destruction: the great plumes of pulverized mass at the beginning of the collapse; and the pools of molten metal found in the debris weeks later (kerosene jet fuel fires may weaken steel, but cannot melt it).

Ron Paul on Hypocritical Posturing Toward China

This resolution "calls on the People's Republic of China to invite full and independent investigations into the Tiananmen Square crackdown, assisted by the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and the International Committee of the Red Cross..."

Where do we get the authority for such a demand?

I wonder how the US government would respond if China demanded that the United Nations conduct a full and independent investigation into the treatment of detainees at the US-operated Guantanamo facility?

Did Bomb Bring Down French Airbus?

The corporate media reports that the Air France airbus that went down in the Atlantic was a victim of “updrafts and lightning” from tropical thunderstorms. “The Airbus A330-200 lost contact with controllers after hitting turbulence as it flew to Paris from Rio de Janeiro. The plane reported an electrical breakdown, then sent 10 automated distress signals and vanished,” reports Bloomberg.

Airbus said “it would be inappropriate for Airbus to enter into any form of speculation into the causes of the accident.”

Speculation, of course, if rife. However, the media is not reporting an incident that may have played into the airplane’s disappearance over the Atlantic.

The Emergence of Obama’s Muslim Roots

Now that Obama is “reaching out” to the Muslim world, his Muslim past is useful. In his April 6 address to the Turkish Parliament, President Obama referenced how many “Americans have Muslims in their families or have lived in a Muslim majority country. I know, because I am one of them.” Barrack Obama wants it both ways, depending on which way the political winds are blowing. It helps that most Americans have no long term memory and are carried along by the corporate media orchestrated news cycle.

Here is the first project report, this one based on my own first-hand documented experience. In 2003 Newsweek reporter Michael Isikoff interviewed me for, and then published a story on the FBI translation program.

How Important is Cheney's Admission that There was NEVER Any Evidence Linking Iraq and 9/11?

How important is Cheney's admission?

Well, 5 hours after the 9/11 attacks, Donald Rumsfeld said "my interest is to hit Saddam".

He also said "Go massive . . . Sweep it all up. Things related and not."

And at 2:40 p.m. on September 11th, in a memorandum of discussions between top administration officials, several lines below the statement "judge whether good enough [to] hit S.H. [that is, Saddam Hussein] at same time", is the statement "Hard to get a good case." In other words, top officials knew that there wasn't a good case that Hussein was behind 9/11, but they wanted to use the 9/11 attacks as an excuse to justify war with Iraq anyway.

Oops.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney wants a do-over. After being party to an administration that repeatedly sought to tie the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks with Saddam Hussein, he’s ready to let that assertion go.

In an interview with Fox News’ Greta van Susteren Monday, Cheney said there was no evidence tying Iraq and 9/11 — and that there never was.

The New Paradigm

Our paradigm or worldview provides a framework to organize new information. This is how we "make sense of the world." We filter out what doesn't fit. We can't seem to learn what doesn't conform to our paradigm, i.e. prejudices or "education." Paradigms can be liberating or prisons, depending on how true to reality they are.

About ten years ago, my paradigm began to change when i realized that the government, media & education were actively sabotaging society. I had imbibed feminist and Illuminist propaganda (i.e. "sexual liberation") and was confused and dysfunctional. When I discovered that I couldn't question feminist shibboleths in a university setting, I knew something was very wrong.

Searching for Holocaust massacre victims

On the day the long-delayed dig was announced, Fischer stood alone in the nearby village of Staakow on the site where the 589 victims had been discovered accidentally by a work crew in 1971, laying a beribboned wreath of flowers at the site.

He then watched as workers toiled for three weeks, locating only one of the Lieberose barracks and silverware emblazoned with the SS insignia.

Fischer was downcast at first, fearing the lack of human remains would halt the project's momentum.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Agents observed several members of the hunting party, including the Vice President, consuming alcohol before and during the hunting expedition, the report notes, and Cheney exhibited "visible signs" of impairment, including slurred speech and erratic actions, the report said.
According to those who have read the report and talked with others present at the outing, Cheney was drunk when he gunned down his friend and the day-and-a-half delay in allowing Texas law enforcement officials on the ranch where the shooting occurred gave all members of the hunting party time to sober up.

Man Killed in Mexican Crash Is Indeed Iran-Contra Figure

The Israeli Embassy, confirming that the man killed in a plane crash on Wednesday was Amiram Nir, a figure in the Iran-contra scandal, said today that Mr. Nir was not on ''any official business'' in Mexico.

Mr. Nir was an adviser to two Israeli Prime Ministers, and he was said to have played the role of intermediary in the sale of United States arms to Iran. The Mexican police and a spokeswoman for the airline whose plane crashed also positively identified the victim as Mr. Nir.

Mr. Nir was killed Wednesday while traveling under an assumed name, Pat Weber. As a counterterrorism adviser to Israel, he once briefed Vice President Bush on secret arms sales to Iran.

In addition, he said that we have to have faith in our judicial system and we should try the Khalid Sheikh Muhammads in a court of law.

Busted, Pentagon: Why The Photos Probably Do Show Detainees Sodomized and Raped

These photos go to exactly why Obama is burning what is left of the shreds of the Constitution by calling for preemptive detention for about 100 detainees. It ain't because they are `too dangerous,' his pathetic justification. It is because their bodies are crime scenes. It is because the torture, including possibly the sexual assault, they experienced is likely to be so horrific that if they were ever to have their day in court it is others whom Obama needs who would be incriminated.

The Telegraph of London broke the news -- because the U.S. press is in a drugged stupor - -- that the photos President Barack Obama is refusing to release of detainee abuse depict, among other sexual tortures, an American soldier raping a female detainee and a male translator raping a male prisoner.

The paper claims the photos also show anal rape of prisoners with foreign objects such as wires and lightsticks. Retired Army Maj. Gen. Antonio Taguba calls the images "horrific" and "indecent" (but absurdly agrees that Obama should not release them -- proving once again that the definition of hypocrisy is the assertion that the truth is in poor taste).

I especially find the malaria deaths statistic interesting as we know that the main reason that so many people die each year of malaria in the Third World is because environmental groups have fought any use at all of DDT being sprayed in the homes of people (not in mass sprayings, as used to be the case).

This time Der Spiegel’s Erich Follath claimed solo that the international committee investigating the assassination of former Prime Minister martyr Rafik Hariri has reached “surprising new secret conclusions”, this time pointing to Hezbollah.

Jose E. Concepcion, aka Mylow magnet motor a hoax

LightRider's analysis of the rotation speeds shows that the only time the devices show acceleration is when not all the device is shown, allowing for some kind of external assist to take place (e.g. a quiet, battery-powered Dremel tool). When the entire motor is in view, invariably the motor is decelerating as you would expect if there were no magic taking place in the magnets.

The most blatant demonstration of this is in the March 22 video. The motor accelerates except when it is in full view, at which time it very clearly slows down.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Dozens of people (whose email addresses I had never seen before) sent me the original videos of this "amazing" motor and insisted that I "simply MUST" post this on my website. I declined, for reasons having to do with my science background, and in turn received quite a bit of email abuse from these operatives clearly intending to force this obvious hoax onto my website.

Fake Rape Photos Re-Emerge Again To Discredit Real Torture Scandal

Staged photos lifted from porn websites purporting to be images of U.S. troops raping female detainees at Abu Ghraib are again circulating at the height of the torture scandal, discrediting the very real and admitted accounts of rape described in Major General Antonio Taguba’s military report into the Abu Ghraib prison.

Despite the fact that these photos were vehemently discredited and proven to be taken from porn websites when they first emerged in 2004, they are again being erroneously cited as examples of photos showing rape that the Obama administration is blocking from public release - providing debunkers with ammunition to dismiss the validity of the torture scandal altogether.

US News and World Report 911 hit piece backfires against the Propagandists

But the real story isn’t the obvious moronic drivel concocted by this yellow-journalistic rag of disinformation, it is the collection of well-informed comments left on their site…. 147 so far, the overwhelming majority of which are critical of the official conspiracy theory and also of this collection of nonsense that tries to pass itself off as news.

IRS tax revenue falls along with taxpayers' income

For example, 6 million people lost jobs in the 12 months ended in April — and that means far fewer dollars from income taxes. Income tax revenue dropped 44% from a year ago.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The numbers do not work out. 6 million lost jobs do not account for a 44% decline in tax revenues. a 44% decline in tax revenues roughly equates to ALL working Americans having lost almost half of their earning ability.

As I mentioned before, the official unemployment figures do not tell the whole story. People who have lost high-paying jobs and been forced to take lower-paying jobs are still counted as employed, yet as the 44% reduction in tax revenues indicates, this is a significant loss of earning ability.

A 44% decline in tax revenues means that Americans are now earning 44% less money, thanks to a misguided tax policy that encouraged corporations to send high-paying American jobs to other countries.

USS Liberty Veteran Receives Silver Star

The Navy vet was only 23-years old when his ship ... the USS Liberty was attacked by Israeli fighter jets. 34 crewmembers were killed, 170 others injured. During the two-hour attack Halbardier fixed an antenna that was shot down and sent out a signal for help.

The June 8th 1967 attack is widely controversial because Israel was the U.S.'s ally during the war. President Lyndon Johnson declared it an "accident" but those aboard are certain the attack was deliberate.

"There's a lot of theories but let's just say they didn't want us listening in to what they wanted to do," said Halbardier.

"The government has kept this quiet I think for too long and I felt as my constituent he needed to get recognized for the services he made to this country," said Nunes.

The 10 Most Popular Conspiracy Theories

Reptilian humanoids control us? The Government carried out 9/11? Here are the 10 wackiest -- and most durable -- conspiracy theories.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As I have pointed out over this last, the government has mounted a huge propaganda campaign to ridicule or marginalize anyone who questions the official story on anything and to imply those who do not accept what they are told by the government as having "false thoughts" (how Stalin!)

I am surprised to see Alternet go along with this, but as this example shows, the usual tactic is to take serious areas of inquiry, such as 9-11, and blend them with UFOs, Elvis, and "Reptilians". That way the serious questions about 9-11 can be ignored without having to answer them.

Doublespeak on North Korea

We are witnessing the Washington gangsters construct yet another threat like Slobodan Milosevic, Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, John Walker Lindh, Hamdi, Padilla, Sami Al-Arian, Hamas, Mahkmoud Ahmadinejad, and the hapless detainees demonized by the US Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld as “the 700 most dangerous terrorists on the face of the earth,” who were tortured for six years at Gitmo only to be quietly released. Just another mistake, sorry.

The military/security complex that rules America, together with the Israel Lobby and the financial banksters, needs a long list of dangerous enemies to keep the taxpayers’ money flowing into its coffers.

There are things in our history that most Americans don’t know because they haven’t been told, or what they have been told is not true. Unfortunately, some of the things are so disturbing that many of us would prefer to keep it that way. Such is the case of the death of Frank Olson.

On Monday, November 23, 1953, Olson, a scientist at Fort Detrick, Maryland, told his boss he wanted to quit his job. The following Saturday Olson fell to his death from a tenth floor window of a hotel in New York City.

The Silence of MoveOn

The most powerful grassroots organization of the peace movement, MoveOn, remains silent as the American wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan simmer or escalate.

When he met with Obama in February, Jason Ruben, executive director of MoveOn, told the president it was "the moment to go big," then indicated that MoveOn would not oppose the $94 billion war supplemental request, nor the 21,000 additional troops to Afghanistan, nor the increased civilian casualties from the mounting number of Predator attacks.

What was MoveOn's explanation for abandoning the peace movement in a meeting with a president the peace movement was key to electing? According to Ruben and MoveOn, it was the preference of its millions of members, as ascertained by house meetings and polls.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Move On is NOT a peace organization. Go back to look at when and how it was created, and you will find that Move On was created specifically to help Bill Clinton evade impeachment. Now that Hillary is SecState and PRO-war, MoveOn shows us its true origins and purposes.

The Bilderberg Plan for 2009: Remaking the Global Political Economy

Before the meeting began, Bilderberg investigative journalist Daniel Estulin reported on the main item of the agenda, which was leaked to him by his sources inside. Though such reports cannot be verified, his sources, along with those of veteran Bilderberg tracker, Jim Tucker, have proven to be shockingly accurate in the past. Apparently, the main topic of discussion at this year's meeting was to address the economic crisis, in terms of undertaking, “Either a prolonged, agonizing depression that dooms the world to decades of stagnation, decline and poverty ... or an intense-but-shorter depression that paves the way for a new sustainable economic world order, with less sovereignty but more efficiency.”

Government Experiments on U.S. Soldiers: Shocking Claims Come to Light in New Court Case

That government scientists conducted human experiments at Edgewood is not in question. "The program involved testing of nerve agents, nerve agent antidotes, psychochemicals, and irritants," according to a 1994 General Accounting Office (now the Government Accountability Office) report (PDF). At least 7,800 US servicemen served "as laboratory rats or guinea pigs" at Edgewood, alleges Erspamer's complaint, filed in January in a federal district court in California. The Department of Veterans Affairs has reported that military scientists tested hundreds of chemical and biological substances on them, including VX, tabun, soman, sarin, cyanide, LSD, PCP, and World War I-era blister agents like phosgene and mustard. The full scope of the tests, however, may never be known.

Secret Israeli Report: Venezuela, Bolivia Supplying Iran With Uranium For Its Nuclear Program

How the FBI Misidentified a Suspected Terrorist Using Fingerprint Evidence

Implicating Mayfield, despite the insistence of the Spanish that his finger-prints were not those found on the detonator bag, gave the FBI potential jurisdiction in the Madrid bombings, which was of signal importance, as it became obvious that the Spanish would not continue to support Washington's and Israel's middle eastern agenda, moving to withdraw its troops from Iraq, even despite the Madrid train bombings. Jurisdiction was important to the FBI in its persistence to continue the serial bogus indictments of patsies by the FBI and the DOJ; concocted in their continued efforts to support and justify the "eternal war on terror".

US investigator exposes Iran's nuclear weapons 'shopping list'

Robert Morgenthau, the New York district attorney who is heading a long-term investigation into the Islamic regime's complex web of illicit overseas financial operations, told US senators there was little time left to halt Tehran's atomic weapons programme.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem is that when you get right down to Morganthau's actual list, 15,000 kgs of aluminium, 1,700 kgs of graphite, 30,000 kgs of tungsten-copper, 19,000 kgs of tungsten metal powder and 24,500 kgs of maraging steel rods; what you have are materials used in any industrialized nation.

The article goes onto admit that all these materials have benign legitimate uses, but takes the position that Iran should not have any materials that might in any way make Israel nervous. This is akin to banning kitchen matches, because after all, arsonists might be able to use them!

Folks, just keep in mind that we saw the exact same claims made about Iraq.

Like the professional witch hunters of another age, Morgenthau has done very well financially seeing WMDs even where they are not.

Early retirement claims increase dramatically

Instead of seeing older workers staying on the job longer as the economy has worsened, the Social Security system is reporting a major surge in early retirement claims that could have implications for the financial security of millions of baby boomers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BULL BISCUITS!

The Social Security system has been looted going back to the Clinton years to cover government budget shortfalls. Social Security's ability to cover the baby boomers was traded away for the Clinton "budget surplus", and now the government is going to blame "early retirees" as well as the economy for the collapse of Social Security which was brought about by the government itself.

FBI stops supposed ‘Temple Plot’ in New York City

What is most interesting about this is not that we were protected from a supposed terrorist attack, but that the whole “plot” was invented by an FBI informant:

The defendants, in their efforts to acquire weapons, dealt with an informant acting under law enforcement supervision, authorities said. The FBI and other agencies monitored the men and provided an inactive missile and inert C-4 to the informant for the defendants, a federal complaint said.

In June 2008, the informant met Cromitie in Newburgh and Cromitie complained that his parents had lived in Afghanistan and he was upset about the war there and that many Muslim people were being killed in Afghanistan and Pakistan by U.S. military forces, officials said.

GE's Jeff Immelt: Global Warming 'Compelling'; Cap-and-Trade Most 'Effective' Way to Go

The General Electric CEO said he favored a cap-and-trade system to regulate carbon emissions versus a carbon tax.

There's going to be people that argue for taxes. But, I - I just think cap-and-trade is the more practical approach. But let's debate all that stuff, but let's get it done."

Special Tribunal Spokeswoman, Hezbollah Dismiss Spiegel’s Allegations

Hezbollah media relations’ bureau issued a statement on Sunday in which it dismissed allegations published by the German magazine Der Spiegel and broadcast by Al-Arabiyya Channel saying that it is nothing less than “police fabrications”.

Der Spiegel claimed on Saturday that the UN special Tribunal for Lebanon probing the assassination of Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri in 2005, had new evidence that Hezbollah special forces "planned and executed" the Beirut car bombing that killed the former premier and 22 others.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Originally, Syria was blamed for Hariri's death, which led to Syria's withdrawal from Lebanon ... whereupon Israel attacked Lebanon in an attempt to gain access to the Litani river whose water Israel covets.

But Hezbollah, even without Syrian assistance, stopped Israel and the consensus is that Israel lost the 2006 invasion.

So it comes as no surprise that the frame up for Hariri's assassination (thought to have actually been carried out by Israel) shifts to Hezbollah, as Israel needs to find a way to get them out of the way before the next attempt to steal the Litani River.

Credit Default Swaps; The Poison in the Financial System

In a little more than a decade, Credit Default Swaps (CDS) have ballooned into a multi-billion dollar industry which has changed the fundamental character of the financial system and increased systemic risk by many orders of magnitude. CDS, which were originally created to reduce potential losses from defaulting bonds, has turned into a cash cow for the big banks, generating mega-profits on, what amounts to, nothing more than legalized gambling. In the case of insurance giant AIG, losses from CDS transactions has already cost the American people $150 billion, and yet their still has been no serious effort in Congress to ban them once and for all.

President Dwight Eisenhower famously warned about the might of the "military-industrial complex," cautioning that "the potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist." He worried that "there is a recurring temptation to feel that some spectacular and costly action could become the miraculous solution to all current difficulties."

Torture and 9/11

This, I submit is what officials in the Obama Administration fear the most. An investigation of torture would inevitably lead to questions about what 9/11 was really about. We know with certainty that the official version of events is a pack of lies; what if America had to confront the fact that 9/11 really was an inside job? (The recent finding of nano-thermite in WTC dust is just one more compelling argument.) It’s even possible that Cheney has threatened to spill the beans if anyone comes after him for torture for which he has openly and brazenly taken credit. Would a torturer refuse to stoop to blackmail? If that seems farfetched wouldn’t torture itself have seemed so a relatively short time ago?

Pornographic videos flood YouTube

Video-sharing website YouTube has removed hundreds of pornographic videos which were uploaded in what is believed to be a planned attack.

The material was uploaded under names of famous teenage celebrities such as Hannah Montana and Jonas Brothers.

Many started with footage of children's videos before groups of adults performing graphic sex acts appeared on screen.

YouTube owner Google said it was aware and addressing the problem.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

History repeats.

Years ago, before browsers when the internet was still mostly usenet, there was a sudden flood of really gross and poor quality porn (just because it is an adult movie is no excuse for crappy film making) poured into wholly inappropriate newsgroups on usenet. There are specific areas of usenet for adult material but these pictures were being posted in placing like cooking groups, and the political groups.

The regular usenet readers asked the posters to confine their adult materials to the appropriate groups, and the porn posters came back with this lame claim that the first amendment gave them the right to post their porn in every single usenet news group.

I began to smell a huge rate here, and already having learned what the US government was like I started digging and sure enough the flood of porn was coming through various US Government and military sites. And sure enough, one month after the flood of porn showed up on usenet, Senator Exon introduced his amendment to the telecommunications act calling for government control and censorship of the internet, and making any obscenity on the internet a felony. Senator Exon took to the floor and showed his "Blue" book, a blue binder filled with the very images that had flooded usenet for the preceding weeks. And no sooner had the bill passed than the flood of porn ended as if a switch had been thrown.

So, if someone is flooding YouTube with porn, then it is an attempt to revive a call for government control of internet content. So, you need to ask, Que Bono. Who wants the internet brought under censorship>

FBI Agent on Synagogue Case Has Questionable Record

Special Agent Robert Fuller, whose name appears at the top of the federal criminal complaint in the case, had a hand in the FBI's failure to nab two of the 9/11 hijackers, had one of his informants set himself on fire in front of the White House, and was involved in misidentifying a Canadian man as a terrorist leading to his secret arrest and torture -- a case that is now the subject of a major lawsuit.

ISLAMOPHOBIA COMES TO THE BIG SCREEN

A new documentary from a shadowy non-profit, the Clarion Fund, has ties to groups widely accused of Islamophobia.

The Third Jihad purports to educate US citizens about the threat of a “cultural Jihad” by the country’s own Muslim-American population. The film goes to great lengths to define itself as an expose of radical Muslim elements, not the faith at large.

But a group called the International Free Press Society (IFPS), which attended the Washington premiere of the film and documented the screening on behalf of the production company on a social media website, has some dubious affiliations.

Cheney speech reportedly refers to 9/11 25 times

Even though Cheney’s predecessor, former Vice President Al Gore, waited a few years before hitting the Bush Administration, the media made sure to remind viewers that such instances were rare, and many hinted that he was wrong to do so, despite waiting. Meanwhile, Cheney, whose popularity ranks lower than most politicians past and present and who may conceivably face future charges for his role in countless alleged illegal acts and decisions, continues to garner tons of attention from the press.

Uncle Sam's Human Lab Rats

That government scientists conducted human experiments at Edgewood is not in question. "The program involved testing of nerve agents, nerve agent antidotes, psychochemicals, and irritants," according to a 1994 General Accounting Office (now the Government Accountability Office) report (PDF). At least 7,800 US servicemen served "as laboratory rats or guinea pigs" at Edgewood, alleges Erspamer's complaint, filed in January in a federal district court in California. The Department of Veterans Affairs has reported that military scientists tested hundreds of chemical and biological substances on them, including VX, tabun, soman, sarin, cyanide, LSD, PCP, and World War I-era blister agents like phosgene and mustard. The full scope of the tests, however, may never be known.

Like Miami 7, New York Terror Plot Funded And Uncovered By The FBI

Again, an FBI informant led these “home-grown” “Al-Qaeda-Wanna-Be” losers to purchase explosives and probably provided the money and the expertise, as they did in the Miami Seven “terror plot” to blow-up the Sears Tower.

In other words, these “terror cells” have been created, engineered and funded by the FBI.

FLASHBACK - The FBI Allowed the 1993 WTC Bombing to Happen

Law-enforcement officials were told that terrorists were building a bomb that was eventually used to blow up the World Trade Center, and they planned to thwart the plotters by secretly substituting harmless powder for the explosives, an informer said after the blast.

The informer was to have helped the plotters build the bomb and supply the fake powder, but the plan was called off by an F.B.I. supervisor who had other ideas about how the informer, Emad Salem, should be used, the informer said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Relinked at reader request.

By now the rather convenient timing of last night's arrests in New York to support Dick Cheney's turd-polish which has just ended must be obvious.

And like so many other "terrorist" arrests, this one involves an FBI informant who found a group of angry men, got them to the point of making some big talk, and set them up for an arrest. Based on the prior record, there will be headlines for a few days, then the case will collapse for lack of real evidence.

But America needed "to remember why they need us!" to quote from "V for Vendetta" and last night's arrest set the stage for Dick Cheney to come onto TV today to try to save his sorry ass in a modern day repeat of the "Checkers" speech that saved Nixon's career. Please keep in mind what happened when the earlier Dick got his second chance from a too forgiving American public.

Dick is trying to play the "24" scenario with himself as Agent Jack Bauer (a TV series whose sole purpose seems to have been to convince America that torture is cool). But the reality Dick and ABCNNBBCBS is not mentioning is that torture wasn't used to find any ticking bombs, but to extract useful confessions, such as that of Ibn al-Sheikh al-Libi; a knowingly false confession which was used to sell the Iraq war to the American people. Ibn al-Sheikh al-Libi has now been conveniently suicided as an embarrassment to the state.

Frankly, you should be insulted that Dick Cheney think you are such a dumb rube that he can come on TV and talk you out of your righteous anger.

And please keep this in mind. Yesterday the New York Times reported that President Obama is considering a plan for "preventive detentions" for suspected terrorists HERE IN THE UNITED STATES, specifically for people for whom no evidence of wrongdoing actually exists, but who the government wants to lock up anyway. Does anyone here imagine that the same methods employed against the current terror suspects will not be used against the new ones, if the government feels they can get away with it? and look at the MIAC report and the DHS lexicon. The government has already decided that anyone who supports the Constitution is a potential terror suspect. Obama's plan can lock you up, and then you can figure out what happens next.

... if you let it continue.

New York “Terror Plot” Another Government Provocateured Set-Up

The corporate media and the authorities are having a field day lavishing saturation coverage on the so-called New York “terror plot” in which four men, three of them U.S. citizens, supposedly planned to blow up a Jewish temple and shoot down military planes, feverishly citing it as another example of why we should accept police state measures in major cities and the targeting of American citizens as “domestic terrorists”.

The only problem with this premise, mirroring just about every other major terror plot and terror bust that we have ever studied, is that the men were radicalized and provocateured by an FBI informant, who provided the group with the fake weapons that led to their arrest.

Apologies for Evil

Jeffrey Goldberg has written one of the most obvious pieces of pure propaganda ever published in the New York Times. Purporting to report on the whys and wherefores of the state of Netanyahu's thinking, it is actually a devious advertisement directed at the American people to make Bibi's racist eliminationist violent supremacism seem as sympathetic as possible. A perfect analogy would be a 1938 op-ed explaining to the British people the reason for Hitler's thoughts. Goldberg can get away with this only because of the fact that 'dual loyalty' is still partly invisible to the American people - or so the proprietors of the New York Times would like to think - and thus he can still, barely, pass as an American writing for Americans.

Valerie Plame: Obama is on Bush’s side

So, President Barack Obama is on the side of the patriotic folks who outed a CIA agent working to keep weapons of mass destruction out of the hands of an intemperate leader of a Middle East nation hostile to the United States.

Well, not likely. But the Obama dministration apparently understood the “exemption” of the offices of the president and vice president from a federal law on privacy. And apparently it also understood that even wityh jurisdiction, Plame would have to prove that she was harmed directly by the actions of those named in the suit.

Go figure. Cheney’s scheme worked. At least it worked long enough for him to get the war he wanted and how he wanted it. If he had to ruin the career of a CIA agent in the process, well, that’s just collateral damage.

Well, yes, that’s hardly surprising. The PATRIOT Act and other legislation .pdf passed by Congress gives the government the legal "right" to spy on American citizens and, in the case of Jose Padilla, lock them up without a trial and throw away the key.

Israel gives Obama until end of year on Iran

In practice, this means that Netanyahu agreed to give Obama until the end of the year. Then, if Iran's nuclear program is still proceeding, Israel will consider "other options."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I doubt that this is what they really talked about in their meeting. Neither Netanyahu nor Obama talked about Iran's nuclear weapons because both of them know full well that Iran is not building nuclear weapons nor has the IAEA found any evidence Iran is building nuclear weapons.

If the nuclear power station were the real concern, the US would abide by article 4 of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty which OBLIGATES the United States to assist any developing country with the construction of peaceful nuclear power plants. I cannot think of a better way for the US to see what Iran is really doing with that power station than actually being there helping to pour the foundations and weld the pipes.

So, what Netanyahu has really told Obama is that Obama has until the end of the year to convince the US population to support a war in Iran, or Israel will just start one for us.

I told you Obama looked like a whipped puppy coming out of that meeting.

We wouldn't want to inflame anti-American sentiment

We might, for instance, want to stop invading, bombing and occupying Muslim countries and imprisoning their citizens with no charges by the thousands. But exploiting concerns over "anti-American sentiment" to vest our own government leaders with the power to cover-up evidence of wrongdoing is as incoherent as it is dangerous. Who actually thinks that the solution to anti-American sentiment is to hide evidence of our wrongdoing rather than ceasing the conduct that causes that sentiment in the first place?

Russian Report on 1980 'October Surprise' Case

That case centered on allegations that, during the summer and fall of 1980, the Reagan-Bush campaign conducted secret negotiations with Iran's Islamic fundamentalist government, which was holding 52 Americans hostage. The lingering crisis sapped President Jimmy Carter's political strength and cleared the way for Ronald Reagan's historic victory. The hostages were freed immediately after Reagan became President.

The Russian assistance was requested on Oct. 21, 1992, by the House task force chairman, Rep. Lee Hamilton, D-Ind. The Russian report asserted that the allegations of secret Republican negotiations with Iran were true. But the Russian report was never released by the task force, whose public findings reached the opposite conclusion.

The Case of the Missing H-Bomb: The Pentagon Has Lost the Mother of All Weapons

Things go missing. It's to be expected. Even at the Pentagon. Last October, the Pentagon's inspector general reported that the military's accountants had misplaced a destroyer, several tanks and armored personnel carriers, hundreds of machine guns, rounds of ammo, grenade launchers and some surface-to-air missiles. In all, nearly $8 billion in weapons were AWOL.

Those anomalies are bad enough. But what's truly chilling is the fact that the Pentagon has lost track of the mother of all weapons, a hydrogen bomb. The thermonuclear weapon, designed to incinerate Moscow, has been sitting somewhere off the coast of Savannah, Georgia for the past 40 years. The Air Force has gone to greater lengths to conceal the mishap than to locate the bomb and secure it.

Fri May 15, 2009 at 15:06:22 PM EDT

Former VP Dick Cheney has requested the release of additional memos showing that torture and abuse saved American lives by preventing terrorist attacks. If the Obama Administration decides to release these memos, then I suggest they also release statistics from Iraq showing the number of foreign fighters that were recruited because of our policy of torture and abuse. It was tracked. I know because I saw the slides and because I heard captured foreign fighters state this day in and day out. The government can also release the statistics that show that 90% of suicide bombers in Iraq were these same foreign fighters. These foreign fighters killed hundreds, if not thousands, of American soldiers.

After these revelations, Americans can judge whether or not a policy of torture and abuse kept us safe.

Leaked torture photos published in 2006 went largely unseen

A little over three years ago, SBS Dateline, an Australian television program, released leaked photographs from the U.S. prison in Iraq, Abu Ghraib.

It is believed that the pictures being held back by the Obama administration may include some of these shots that most of the US press ignored, although RAW STORY ran them in 2006.

Bedbug infestations, Malaria and Banned pesticides that work

Boom in tiny bedbugs is causing big trouble
By Barbara Barrett, McClatchy Newspapers Barbara Barrett, Mcclatchy Newspapers – Fri May 15, 2009
Since the EPA restricted the use of several effective pesticides in the 1980s, bedbugs have built resistance to the chemicals that now are on the market, said Potter, the University of Kentucky entomologist. Public education is important, he said, but the industry also needs a good insecticide.

Blackwater-affiliated contractors investigated

The incident occurred as the U.S. is facing rising outrage from Afghan leaders over civilian casualties from U.S. air strikes. For Xe, which is the name Blackwater chose earlier this year to distance itself from its controversial security work in Iraq, the shooting comes as the Obama administration and Defense Secretary Robert Gates reconsider the role of military contractors, a practice that boomed during the Bush administration.

Pelosi’s Claims Getting Much More Media Scrutiny Than CIA’s Assertions

Whichever side of the torture debate you’re on, it’s a simple matter of fact that Nancy Pelosi’s claims about what she was told and when about torture are getting far more intense media scrutiny than the CIA’s claims are.

Simple fairness demands that both side’s claims get treated with a similar level of skepticism. And they’re not.

Anger at Obama Guantanamo ruling

Civil liberties groups have reacted angrily to US President Barack Obama's decision to revive military trials for some Guantanamo Bay detainees.

Mr Obama has previously denounced the Bush-era judicial system, but in a statement said new safeguards would ensure suspects got a fairer hearing.

New rules include rejecting statements obtained from harsh interrogations and limitations on using hearsay evidence.

There are still 240 detainees at the US base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

FLASHBACK - ARE YOU ANGRY YET?

I am very angry. #$%^#%$ anger management, I am pissed off! And if you carry any of the blood of those who made this nation what it is today you have to be angry too. You should be angry. You must be angry. Because right now there is a battle about to start over whether this nation will continue to be ruled by those who lie, or whether the liars will be kicked out. Whether we will have honest government or not. Whether we will be slaves to liars, or free citizens with honorable and respectful and fair government.

Be angry. Be very angry. Hate liars. Focus your anger on them. Drive them from office and from the media. There is no other choice but permanent servitude.

Dear Corporate Media, Now That You're Connecting Torture to War, Can We Talk?

Now that you're beginning to talk about the fact that our country tortured people in order to elicit war rationales, can we talk for a minute? I'd like to point a few things out that you can verify without spending a dime on investigative reporting. First, we now know that we tortured in hopes of producing justifications for a war. Let's suppose that this was done in "good faith" and that the lies al Libi told to stop the pain were actually true. We know that the torturing preceded and exceeded the OLC memos, the OLC memos were themselves insane (I think that's the legal term for it, but you can ask your lawyers), and dozens of people were tortured until they were dead. Let's suppose none of that to be the case.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

None of that would change the fundamental fact that we were not torturing for defense of this nation but for an offensive attack on another nation.

Peter Rothberg: Save Troy Davis

I last wrote about Troy Davis in this space in July of 2007. He was scheduled for execution for a murder he maintains he did not commit. Seven out of nine witnesses agree -- having recanted or contradicted their testimony.

The Secret Service at Booker Elementary: The Dog That Did Not Bark

Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9-11" suggests Bush's inaction was due to his not being told to leave. But Michael Moore fails to follow that line of reasoning through to its logical conclusion; where were the people whose job it is to get the President to a place of safety in event of attack, the people who would have, SHOULD have, pulled Bush out of there, children and public appearances be damned!

The Secret Service did nothing. The dog did not bark.

If the events of 9-11 were truly a surprise to the United States Government then there is no way the Secret Service could have known there wasn't a hijacked or stolen plane heading towards Booker Elementary School that very second.

The Secret Service did nothing. The dog did not bark.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now that the official US Government story of 9-11 is exposed as being founded on confessions extracted under torture, it is time to go back and look at the FACTS in the case.

One of the Main Sources for the 9/11 Commission Report was Tortured Until He Agreed to Sign a Confession that He Was NOT EVEN ALLOWED TO READ

Four of them said they gave information only to stop the torture. Although details were redacted in all the detainees’ testimony, the tribunal permitted the inclusion of a letter from a detainee’s father in one case, citing what he claimed was American torture of his son.

This torture only stopped when Majid agreed to sign a statement that he wasn’t even allowed to read.

Indeed, as legal experts have pointed out, and 9/11 Commission Director Zelikow tacitly acknowledges, evidence based on torture is not reliable.
