MSF Hospital Was in US ‘Restricted’ Database Before Attack

The Pentagon has reported “initial findings” in its internal investigation of this month’s attack on a Doctors Without Borders (MSF) hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, a strike which killed 22 civilians and has fueled calls for an independent investigation into potential war crimes.

The Pentagon’s comments, reported to CNN, were largely in keeping with what MSF had already reported, affirming that the hospital was known and documented by the Pentagon, that Doctors Without Borders “did everything right” in informing the US of the location of the facility, and that MSF, as they reported the day of the incident, contacted the Pentagon immediately upon the first strike on the facility.

Marines are warned not to read leaked 'drone files'

Curious Marines, be warned: Reading this could get you in a whole lot of trouble. "The Drone Papers," published on Thursday by The Intercept, contain classified files explaining the ins and outs of how the U.S. drone program is run. Though the information is now easily accessible, it's still technically classified — which means that service members, civilian employees, and government contractors put their security clearance at risk just by taking a peek, the Jacksonville Daily News reports.

"Just like with the 'Wikileaks' disclosures, individuals holding security clearances are technically not supposed to review the materials contained in the drone strike stories published by The Intercept," a national security attorney, Bradley P. Moss, told the Jacksonville Daily News. "The leaked materials are still considered classified and viewing classified documents, to which clearance holders are not authorized access is again, technically speaking, a security violation."

Leaked Report: US-Backed Pinochet Dictatorship had High-Level Ties to Child-Torturing Ex-Nazi’s Fortified Cult

There’s a headline for you. Yet the terms come from a Yahoo News report, which seems to be fairly well buried, as it only has one comment. And, crucially, the report makes no mention whatsoever of the US support that brought Pinochet into power and kept him propped up for almost two decades.

But it does say that an ex-Nazi, Paul Schaefer, founded a German outpost in Chile called Colonia Dignidad, which was built up into a fortified, sub-state like entity, and that he ran it as a “cult”, “lord[ing] over [it] with sadistic brutality” and using the enclave for “sexually abusing and torturing children” and others.

Warplanes of US-Led Coalition Attack Power Plant in Aleppo

In blatant violation of international law, warplanes of the US-led alliance violated Syrian airspace and attacked a power plant that feeds Aleppo city, causing a blackout in the city.

A military source told SANA that warplanes of the Washington alliance violated Syrian airspace and attacked civilian infrastructure in Mare’a, Tal Sha’er, and al-Bab in Aleppo countryside on Sunday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Without the power plants, the water system stops working. Disease spreads, and more people are pressured to leave Aleppo and become refugees pouring into Europe. There is absolutely no justification for the US to destroy civilian infrastructure like that!

While increasing cries from the West demand an end to all association with Saudi Arabia, the U.K. government described lucrative public contracts with the notorious human rights abuser as a “priority market.” Government departments have been actively — even aggressively — steering U.K. businesses into bidding for contracts with the Saudis in the health, justice, defense, and security sectors, according to documents seen by the Observer.

While increasing cries from the West demand an end to all association with Saudi Arabia, the U.K. government described lucrative public contracts with the notorious human rights abuser as a “priority market.”

Government departments have been actively — even aggressively — steering U.K. businesses into bidding for contracts with the Saudis in the health, justice, defense, and security sectors, according to documents seen by the Observer.

“It’s becoming increasingly clear that ministers are bent on ever-closer ties with the world’s most notorious human rights abusers,” said Maya Foa, who directs the death penalty team at Reprieve. “Ministers must urgently come clean about the true extent of our agreements with Saudi Arabia and other repressive regimes.”

Police “disappeared” more than 7,000 people at an off-the-books interrogation warehouse in Chicago, nearly twice as many detentions as previously disclosed, the Guardian can now reveal. From August 2004 to June 2015, nearly 6,000 of those held at the facility were black, which represents more than twice the proportion of the city’s population. But only 68 of those held were allowed access to attorneys or a public notice of their whereabouts, internal police records show.

Russia's Syrian Operation to Smash Terrorists, End Tyranny of Banking Elite

Russia's involvement in Syria actually means the decline of the US-led 'new world order' declared by George H.W. Bush in 1990, F. William Engdahl believes."

The Russian intervention has exposed the fraud of the US' position in the Middle East and shown the world that Washington lies, that she supports the very terrorists who allegedly were behind the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York and at the Pentagon," Engdahl pointed out in his article for New Eastern Outlook.

According to the historian Russia is about to put an end to the US-led "new world order" proclaimed by triumphalist President George H.W. Bush on September 11, 1990.

However unlikely its implementation, one solution to the global unrest and record-breaking displacements and migration faced by the world today would be for the U.S. to begin transition to a “peace economy,” as Sean Nevins reported for MintPress News last year. Rather than building its economy through unsustainable, endless warfare and intervention, the U.S. could begin diversifying those billions into other industries and sustainable forms of aid to help the needy and displaced created by its imperialist policies.

Russia’s Awesome Responsibility

The Russian decision to proceed with military support to the Damascus government has shifted the global geopolitical map significantly.

Film: EXPULSION - Syrian Christians under attack from ISIS/FSA and NATO

A documentary short film on Syrian Christians
by Anastasia Popova
Anastasia Popova’s brief documentary film Expulsion (Izgnanie), made for the Russian television channel Rossiia, focuses on the plight of Christians in war-torn Syria. This subject is worthy of greater attention than it has received in the mainstream Western media, hence our effort to subtitle her project.
After all, Christians are one the most persecuted groups in the world. Their depopulation is a general trend in the entire Middle East and North African region (MENA), not just in Syria. This documentary states that, for instance, half of Palestine’s population was once Christian, but now only 5% remain.

"A Very Heavy Agenda" - New documentary released about the neocons and how they run foreign policy for Dems & Repubs

They work both sides of the Democrat Republican fence (not that it is much of a fence anyway) and are now up to their eyeballs in reviving the cold war.

About the video:

Post-9/11, the War on Terror had outlived its usefulness.

The minds behind the think tanks that drive America’s interventionist foreign policy decided that the U.S. needed a new enemy, so they chose an old one -- Russia.

Part 1: A Catalyzing Event 1hr 25mins

Cheney, Wolfowitz and Rumsfeld were ubiquitous in the news media as they took every available opportunity to market to America an aggressive preemptive war policy. But from where did their ideas originate? The answer is a tightly knit and eminently well placed group of neoconservative thought leaders, chief among them Bill Kristol and Robert Kagan. Part 1 begins in the panicked weeks after 9/11, as Kagan et al. seized upon the hysteria surrounding the anthrax letter attacks to further shape America’s perception of reality, planting the seeds for endless future military engagements. George W. Bush may have been understandably perceived as an idiot, but watching these wonks and academics drive the ideological engine for his administration belies a much more sophisticated strategy at play.

Part 2: How We Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The New Neocons 1hr 35mins

After the Cold War, the US-NATO reach expanded significantly to take in most of the old Soviet Union clients in the Warsaw pact. Neoconservative darling Robert Kagan and his diplomat wife Victoria Nuland played key roles inside and out of various administrations and think tanks as they greased the skids for a US-sponsored coup in Ukraine. Part 2 shows the resurrection of old cold warriors from beltway depths to deliver blatant propaganda with techniques reminiscent of a red scare era that had only just faded from memory. US-funded outfits like Radio Free Liberty are pitted against Russia’s RT as each nation accuses the other of waging an ever more desperate and transparent "Information War".

Part 3: Maintaining the World Order 1hr 30mins

"When the Berlin wall fell, our work wasn't finished". -- Victoria Nuland, November 2013

“Fuck the EU” -- Victoria Nuland, February 2014

While stage managing the American empire has undoubtedly proved to be a more difficult task now than in the bipolar world of the cold war era, it is not for lack of greed or hubris that the Kagans and others continue to sell their vision. Did they create these ideas because they truly believe in America's right to be the dominant force in the world? Or, do these ideas help sell weapons and control resources like oil and rare minerals? Part 3 shows interview footage of an obscure PNAC member (Thomas Donnelly) taking credit for the ominous “New Pearl Harbor” phrasing in the notorious 'Rebuilding America’s Defenses' document. But the evidence shows the genesis of the concept to be patriarch Don Kagan, in conjunction with his son Fred, in prior op-eds that call for ‘a catalyzing event’. Other newly sourced footage shows the pair advocating for a US military ground invasion of Palestine on September 12th, 2001 and displaying an unnerving prescience about the 9/11 attacks themselves.

Check Out Irwin Schiff's Extensive Website - While It's Still There

Renown tax protester Irwin Schiff died tragically in an Indiana prison yesterday. The feisty 87-year-old left quite a legacy and a lot of writings behind. There must be hundreds or even thousands of pages and files on his website. I don't know who owns the site or if it will remain, or if it will be scrapped, so now's your chance to read and download Schiff's writings and audio/video presentations. Regardless of what one thinks of his tactics or positions, Irwin Schiff gave his life for a cause he believed in. He fought in a non violent intellectual way and they killed him for it, refusing to even let him go to be with his family as he was dying of cancer. This simply reveals the brutal nature of the state. On his site, Schiff urged readers "But remember we are now dealing with the Federal Mafia and my website may be in danger, so download and save as much material as you can."

Bombshell from Hillary's email stash: Smoking gun emails reveal Blair's 'deal in blood' with George Bush over Iraq war

The disclosure is certain to lead for calls for Sir John Chilcot to reopen his inquiry into the Iraq War if, as is believed, he has not seen the Powell memo.

A second explosive memo from the same cache also reveals how Bush used ‘spies’ in the Labour Party to help him to manipulate British public opinion in favour of the war.

The documents, obtained by The Mail on Sunday, are part of a batch of secret emails held on the private server of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton which U.S. courts have forced her to reveal.

Former Tory Shadow Home Secretary David Davis said: ‘The memos prove in explicit terms what many of us have believed all along: Tony Blair effectively agreed to act as a frontman for American foreign policy in advance of any decision by the House of Commons or the British Cabinet.

'They don't care who gets killed': Ex-drone pilot turned whistleblower to RT

Guilt-ridden American drone pilots continue to quit in unprecedented numbers. One former secret mission operator, Brandon Bryant, who’s received a whistleblower award, spoke to RT of the horrors of indiscriminate killing from a safe distance.

“The people that are giving the order to kill – they don’t care who gets killed as long as their target gets attacked… they’ll take out however many people they can in order to get their results,” Bryant says.

New Leaked Documents Reveal Shocking Info About Profiling Assassination Targets

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Earlier this week came the admission that much of the "intelligence" used to direct drone attacks is weak if not outright faulty. In this video, they talk about how targets are picked by "profile" and one profile is simply assuming that taller men are likely to be fighters and sending a drone to kill them. In one case, a normal sized man who happened to be surrounded by children was targeted, killing the innocent man and all but one of the children!

But only 35 of those casualties were intended targets.

And in one five-month period of the operation, nearly 90 percent of those killed in airstrikes were not the intended targets, The Intercept reported.

US Rejects Hospital Bombing Investigation, Instead Smashes into Hospital in Tank, Destroying Evidence

On October 14th, an “international panel” announced that it was “ready to investigate the deadly US [hospital] bombing”, but would need “assurances from Barack Obama and the Afghan president, Ashraf Ghani, that their governments [would] comply.”

The US rejected the initiative for the investigation, and instead, on October 15th, sent soldiers to smash up the bombed hospital with a tank, “destroy[ing] potential evidence” for the war crimes investigation.

To explain this, the US announced that the tank was carrying the US’s own “investigators”.

US forces in Afghanistan knew Kunduz site was hospital - report

New information suggests the US deliberately targeted the Kunduz hospital, killing 22 patients and staff, despite knowing it was a protected medical site.

US special operations analysts investigated the hospital for days prior to the deadly October 3 attack, describing the hospital as a base of operations for a Pakistani agent coordinating Taliban activities, AP has learned from a former intelligence official familiar with the documents.

The site, operated by Doctors Without Borders (Medecins Sans Frontieres, MSF), was attacked five times in the span of an hour by a C-130 gunship, despite repeated pleas by the MSF to US forces. MSF officials described repeated strafing runs against the main hospital building, which housed the emergency room and the intensive care unit. No surrounding buildings were hit, they say.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US is trying to defend itself now (after being caught in the lie that the targeting of the hospital was a mistake) by claiming they had intelligence that the Taliban were using the hospital as a command post. Of course, no Taliban were found in the piles of dead bodies.

The Senate Intelligence Committee report’s used color-based code names to conceal the CIA’s prison sites.

Israeli Media Fabricating Jewish Deaths & Lying To Public

After being chased by terrorist settlers through the illegal Besgat Za’if settlement (spelled Pisgat Ze’ev by JPost) who wanted Ahmed dead, the mob called to Israeli police to shoot him, claiming he stabbed a Jew. The police and soldiers did not hesitate and they shot Ahmed and his 15-year-old cousin, Hasan, many times. The video shows the Zionist settlers screaming at Ahmed to die, while he lay terrified, bleeding to death, crying for help. The contempt for his life is inhuman.

Jerusalem Post not only fabricated a news story about this incident, they also reported that Ahmed’s death was instead the death of a Jewish child the same age. JPost edited the video of Ahmed’s brutal execution to show a few second clip of medics administering aid to the supposed jewish child, using Ahmed’s execution as their evidence, while providing no names of the victims. This was a filthy attempt to cover-up the Israel’s Zionist crimes.

“Hüngür Hüngür A?l?yorum” is a refrain from a old Turkish folksong — “Bitterly I weep.” It commemorates a bloody turning point at Sakarya against Greek invaders back in 1921. But the words couldn’t more readily apply now to the unprecedented and outrageous bombing attacks in Ankara last week against marchers in a demonstration for peace that has cost the lives of some 100 people. Will that tragedy bring the country to its senses? That event is the most horrific outcome yet of the escalating violence and mayhem that is emerging from the current Turkish electoral campaign —one capriciously demanded by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an. He was dissatisfied with the electoral setbacks of last June’s elections that thwarted his amassing greater powers; hence he mandated new elections so voters could “right their mistake.”

Among the most interesting news items of the past weeks have been those reporting that US officials were forced to admit the US was indeed supporting terrorists in Syria and Iraq. These confessions must have been music to the ears of all those who were branded as "conspiracy theorists" for saying exactly that over the past few years... How odd for NATO to express concern for the broader effects of Russian air strikes in Syria and for civilian casualties. What about NATO's own track record, I wondered. What about the effects and civilian casualties caused by NATO air strikes over the past decade and a half? In Yugoslavia, NATO killed some 2.000 civilians, wounding many thousands more; some 40.000 homes were destroyed or damaged, 300 schools and 20 hospitals were bombed or shot to shreds. Some 200.000 Serbs were forced to leave their homes in Kosovo. In Libya, NATO wrought considerably more havoc and killed more civilians.

Conspiracy Fact – How the Government Conducted 239 Secret Bioweapon Experiments on the American People

It all began in late September of 1950, when over a few days, a Navy vessel used giant hoses to spray a fog of two kinds of bacteria, Serratia marcescens and Bacillus globigii — both believed at the time to be harmless — out into the fog, where they disappeared and spread over the city.

The unsuspecting residents of San Francisco certainly could not consent to the military’s germ warfare test, and there’s good evidence that it could have caused the death of at least one resident of the city, Edward Nevin, and hospitalized 10 others.

Over the next 20 years, the military would conduct 239 “germ warfare” tests over populated areas, according to news reports from the 1970s.

These tests included the large-scale releases of bacteria in the New York City subway system, on the Pennsylvania Turnpike, and in National Airport just outside Washington, D.C.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All of these tests on civilians violate the Nuremberg code.

An Israeli Soldier's Story - Eran Efrati

This is a powerful 40 minute presentation of a former Israeli soldier who was raised in a hard-core Zionist family, as he describes it, and whose grandmother was a Auschwitz 'holocaust survivor.' A series of events led him to see the world in a whole new way- and he found himself protesting with Palestinians being tear-gassed and shot with rubber bullets by his own fellow Israeli soldiers. He explains how the Israeli military are training American police and how even if people don't care about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict now, these very police will oppress us next, as they are taught to view the people as the enemy. A powerful, well done, and impressive presentation well worth watching.

A Short History of U.S. Bombing of Civilian Facilities

On October 3, a U.S. AC-130 gunship attacked a hospital run by Médecins Sans Frontières in Kunduz, Afghanistan, partially destroying it. Twelve staff members and 10 patients, including three children, were killed, and 37 people were injured. According to MSF, the U.S. had previously been informed of the hospital’s precise location, and the attack continued for 30 minutes after staff members desperately called the U.S. military.

The U.S. first claimed the hospital had been “collateral damage” in an airstrike aimed at “individuals” elsewhere who were “threatening the force.” Since then, various vague and contradictory explanations have been offered by the U.S. and Afghan governments, both of which promise to investigate the bombing. MSF has called the attack a war crime and demanded an independent investigation by a commission set up under the Geneva Conventions.

Former CIA Detainees Are Suing The Psychologists Who Developed The Torture Program

-- Three former CIA detainees are suing over being tortured at the agency's infamous "black sites," the first suit to seek accountability in a U.S. court for the CIA's tactics since the Senate Intelligence Committee released the executive summary of its groundbreaking torture report. But the ex-detainees aren't suing the CIA.

They’re suing the pair that sold the spies the program.

James Mitchell and John “Bruce” Jessen are former CIA-contract psychologists who raked in more than $80 million developing and running the torture program on the agency's behalf. The suit accuses the duo of war crimes, including commissioning torture, human experimentation and supporting cruel and inhumane treatment.

Mitchell and Jessen, who previously served as psychologists at the U.S. Air Force’s Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape school, devised several SERE methods into an interrogation program following the 9/11 attacks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


Torture NEVER produces actionable intelligence, and the use or subcontracting of it by the United States government makes a complete mockery of every value we tell the world we hold dear; human rights, democracy, and the true rule of law.

And by using torture, the US government makes it perfectly acceptible for leaders of those countries which don't like us very much to use torture on our American and civilian military.

Does anyone believe NATO any more?

Does NATO these days really believe it has an iota of credibility, when a growing number of political formations across Europe are questioning the constitutionality of its existence (how Constitutional is it to have foreign policy dictated by a supra-national organism which picks fights depending on which way the wind is blowing in Washington?) and when a growing number of political formations in Europe are discriminated against simply because they question the minimum requirement for government, which is to support NATO? Support NATO and its budget, of course. And let us not forget that the collective budget of NATO member states is some 1.2 trillion USD, that is one point two thousand billion dollars per year each and every year. Does NATO believe that anyone actually listens to a word it says when all it does is stage displays of hysterical sabre rattling and make anachronistic references to Cold War days?

As Russia Bombs ISIS, US Bombs Syrian Civilian Power Stations

By Brandon Turbeville

In yet another telling episode, the United States has again demonstrated its true position in regards to ISIS and the Russian bombing of the terrorist organization.

As Russian forces drop bombs and missiles on top of ISIS fighters all across Syria, lobbing cruise missiles from the Caspian, regular sortie missions, and combat helicopter attacks against ISIS and other “relatively moderate” cannibals and terrorists, the United States launched a bombing mission of its own against two power plants in Aleppo...

“Moderate Terrorists”. Deconstructing the NATO Narrative on Syria. “Leftists” Keep the Myth Alive

Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, Avaaz, Moveon, and lesser-known, newly-created groups like The Syria Campaign, The White Helmets, and Action Group for Palestinians in Syria, are complicit in war-propagandizing and even calling for a (Libya 2.0) no-fly-zone bombing campaign of Syria.

On HRW, geopolitical analyst Eric Draitser noted:

Human Rights Watch is undeniably an appendage of US foreign policy. It is in many ways part of the ‘soft power’ arm of US power projection, a means of delegitimizing, demonizing, and otherwise destabilizing countries that do not play ball with the US…

Vigilant Twitter users have called out HRW’s lying Ken Roth for tweeting a photo he claimed to be Aleppo’s destruction from “barrel bombs” but which was, in fact, Ayn al-Arab (Kobani) post-Da’esh attacks and US-coalition bombs. In another outrageous case, Roth tweeted a video of the flattened al-Shuja’iyya neighborhood of Gaza, devastated by Israeli bombing in 2014, purporting it to be Aleppo.

US Senate Hearing Discusses Using Refugees as Human Shields in Syria

When the Médecins Sans Frontières hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan was attacked on Oct. 3 by a U.S. AC-130 gunship, it was not a unique event. Hospitals have come under fire during conflicts presided over by the two previous presidents as well as Barack Obama. The Geneva Convention, to which the United States is a signatory, prohibits the targeting of hospitals. “Civilian hospitals organized to give care to the wounded and sick, the infirm and maternity cases, may in no circumstances be the object of attack but shall at all times be respected and protected by the Parties to the conflict,” according to the treaty.

The Six Most Disastrous Interventions of the 21st Century

On October 2 President Barack Obama, alluding to Russia’s decision to launch air strikes in Syria, told reporters at the White House that for Russia to view the forces targeted “from the perspective they’re all terrorists [is] a recipe for disaster, and it’s one that I reject.”

1 Afghanistan

The first was the disaster of the invasion of Afghanistan beginning in October 2001. I’m not sure we should call it a “crime,” since the international coalition that invaded was authorized by a UN resolution, or a “mistake” since it was clearly the result of calculation.

Medical Care for Terrorists Will Get You Bombed by the US… Unless You’re Israel

For a long period, Israeli military medics took in numerous insurgents from Jabhat al-Nusra (the Syrian branch of Al Qaeda) wounded from fighting to overthrow the Syrian government, patched them up, and sent them back across the border to resume fighting. The mainstream media has studiously ignored this story, but it has been amply documented and confirmed .

Israel tried to justify this by characterizing it as a purely humanitarian policy, much akin to the Doctors Without Borders policy of treating everyone in need, no questions asked.

However, journalist Asa Winstanley has exposed this as pure propaganda:

KABUL — The U.S. military aircraft that attacked an Afghan hospital over the weekend made at least five passes over it dropping explosives, even though two flags draped across the roof of the building marked it as a medical facility, hospital officials said on Thursday.

In a news conference here in the Afghan capital, Doctors Without Borders officials reiterated that they think the hospital’s main building was “deliberately” targeted because it was the only structure hit during the bombardment. They denied that any Taliban fighters in the hospital were armed or using it as a base.

Now, they may finally be vindicated.

Free Thought vs. Social Conformity

As celebrated thinker Edward de Bono notes: ‘If everyone is going in the same direction, then anyone who is going in a different direction is “wrong”. The other direction might be better – but it is still wrong.’

Such is the powerful pull of social conformity. People cannot be fully trusted to say and do what they think is right if others around them are all expressing an opposite opinion. This is because the pull towards social conformity, whether conscious or unconscious, is just too strong. The danger here is that in such environments a person is more likely to give away their personal responsibility than act upon it. A group more generally exhibits a lack of responsibility on the part of its members since each person thinks that the overall responsibility can be shared. Since there is no individual blame to be accrued, a person tends to relinquish their own personal responsibility.

The result is that each person reinforces the other’s inertia. Thus, non-action actually becomes the accepted norm within the group. This inertia is then reinforced and validated, often through personal rationalization, since so much has been invested in the group. To be wrong could inflict much angst upon an individual; it is therefore better to rationalize one’s actions as correct. This ‘fear of responsibility’ is a product of socialization and renders an individual less capable of dealing fluidly with the uncertainties and complexities of a full life.

Neocons Robert Kagan and wife Victoria Nuland have certainly done the heavy lifting to make Ukraine the staging ground for what appears to be a NATO blitzkrieg on Moscow. But whatever the determination of the neocon plot, they are only the barking dogs of master imperialist Zbigniew Brzezinski, whose grand design has been creeping over the globe since he stepped into the Oval office as National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter in 1977.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For you Doctor Who fans, have you noticed how much Zbigniew Brzezinski looks (and acts) like Davros? :)

Israeli undercover forces brutally beat Palestinian protesters

Many undercover Israeli soldiers join Palestinian protests as agent provocateur and incite protesters to hurl stones at Israeli soldiers, then they draw their guns and start helping their fellow military members in arresting the protesters. A newly released video has captured such a story

Oct 08 07:01


On October 3, a U.S. AC-130 gunship attacked a hospital run by Médecins Sans Frontières in Kunduz, Afghanistan, partially destroying it. Twelve staff members and 10 patients, including three children, were killed, and 37 people were injured. According to MSF, the U.S. had previously been informed of the hospital’s precise location, and the attack continued for 30 minutes after staff members desperately called the U.S. military. The U.S. first claimed the hospital had been “collateral damage” in an airstrike aimed at “individuals” elsewhere who were “threatening the force.” Since then, various vague and contradictory explanations have been offered by the U.S. and Afghan governments, both of which promise to investigate the bombing. MSF has called the attack a war crime and demanded an independent investigation by a commission set up under the Geneva Conventions.

IDF accused of inciting, mistreating Palestinian protesters as West Bank violence rages on

Palestinian media was outraged by footage shot by several cameras, including those belonging to RT, which showed Israeli soldiers continuing to beat and kick several protesters long after they had been restrained.

IDF has said it would investigate the footage.

In another episode, several apparent plainclothes Israeli agents stood alongside Palestinians as they launched slingshots, only to suddenly unsheathe their firearms, and begin arresting those in the crowd around them.

U.S. Bombing of a Doctors Without Borders Hospital in Afghanistan Was No Accident – “It Was the Target”

In particular, MSF (Doctors Without Borders) quickly publicized numerous facts that cast serious doubt on the original U.S. claim that the strike on the hospital was just an accident. To begin with, the organization had repeatedly advised the U.S. military of the exact GPS coordinates of the hospital. They did so most recently on September 29, just five days before the strike. Beyond that, MSF personnel at the facility “frantically” called U.S. military officials during the strike to advise them that the hospital was being hit and to plead with them to stop, but the strikes continued in a “sustained” manner for 30 more minutes.

Is the “Truth Bomb” Being Released? – Bill Holter

“Bill, just a thought.
On several occasions you have indicated that at some point Russia (Putin) would be dropping a Truth Bomb aimed at the US.
In light of the recent Russian actions in Syria I would submit that he has just done such.
Let’s look back to last week when Putin addressed the United Nations. He spent some time talking about the Syrian conflict, the Mideast instability and the fallout now enveloping Europe. He put much of the blame on the Western powers and particularly singled out America and implied it’s lack of leadership, motives, nor decisive actions as a root cause. At one point in the speech Putin asked “Do you realize now what you’ve done?” In doing this he asked America directly and Barack Obama specifically, for all the world to hear?

13 year old Shot dead in a school uniform

It is not unusual to see youth from the Aida refugee camp in Bethlehem fight with the Israeli forces of occupation. But the clashes which followed Israel’s slaying of 13-year-old Abdulrahman Shadi Obeidallah — or Abdo, as he was affectionately known — were among the fiercest that residents have seen in recent years.

How Putin will Win in Syria

By most accounts, the conflict had deteriorated into a stalemate. Now, with Russia in the picture, that’s changed. Now the table is clearly tilted in Syria’s favor.…

The reason Putin will succeed where the US failed in its war on ISIS, is because the Russian air-strikes are going to be accompanied by a formidable mop-up operation that will overpower the jihadi groups on the ground. This is already happening as we speak. The Russian Air Force has been pounding terrorist targets across the Idlib Governorate for the last few days as well as ISIS strongholds in the East at Raffa. Putin is going to cut through these guys like crap through a goose.

Putin is not going to stop for anything or anyone. He’s going to nail these guys while he has them in his gun-sights, then he’s going to wrap it up and go home.

Guantánamo reinstates genital searching policy to prevent lawyer-client meetings

This week, two clients of international human rights NGO Reprieve chose not to meet their attorneys at Guantánamo due to reinstated genital searches, raising fears that the searches are being used in a deliberate attempt to stop detainees from meeting with their lawyers.

Staff at Guantánamo told Reprieve attorney Cori Crider during her visit this week, that cleared detainee Samir Moqbel refused their meeting because he didn’t want to submit to the genital search.

Guantánamo staff explained in prior filings that the search involved invasive searches of the prisoner’s groin “by placing the guard’s hand as a wedge between the [detainee’s] scrotum and thigh . . . and using [a] flat hand to press against the groin to detect anything foreign attached to the body,” after which a guard “uses a flat hand to frisk the detainee’s buttocks to ensure no contraband is hidden there.”

Matt Drudge Challenges Obama: Give Up Your Guns

As the White House prepares more executive orders on gun control, Matt Drudge has sensationally challenged President Obama to give up his armed Secret Service protection.

During an impromptu appearance on the Alex Jones Show, Drudge also called on Hillary Clinton to relinquish her armed bodyguards.

“They’re all armed themselves, or they all have that security around them themselves. They don’t have to worry about [danger.] I challenge Hillary, take away your Secret Service. Take it away now. Take away your Secret Service; dismiss them. Have no security around you; have no guns around you, Hillary. I dare you. I dare you,” said Drudge.

Delta Force 'used IEDs for secret assassinations during the Iraq war'

US special operation forces created an IED so that they could carry out secret assassinations without the FBI knowing, a new book claims.

The bomb, developed by Delta Force and the SEAL Team 6, was designed to look and act like those that were made by Iraqi insurgents, writes Sean Naylor in his new book Relentless Strike: The Secret History of Joint Special Operations Command.

Naylor writes that the IED, dubbed the Xbox, was designed by the Joint Special Operations Command to get around political restrictions during the Iraq war.
