FBI Deputizes Private Contractors With Extraordinary Powers, Including 'Shoot to Kill'

By Matthew Rothschild, The Progressive. Posted February 8, 2008.


The FBI has a new set of eyes and ears, and they're being told to protect their infrastructure at any cost. They can even kill without repercussion.

Today, more than 23,000 representatives of private industry are working quietly with the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security. The members of this rapidly growing group, called InfraGard, receive secret warnings of terrorist threats before the public does -- and, at least on one occasion, before elected officials. In return, they provide information to the government, which alarms the ACLU. But there may be more to it than that. One business executive, who showed me his InfraGard card, told me they have permission to "shoot to kill" in the event of martial law. InfraGard is "a child of the FBI," says Michael Hershman, the chairman of the advisory board of the InfraGard National Members Alliance and CEO of the Fairfax Group, an international consulting firm.

InfraGard started in Cleveland back in 1996, when the private sector there cooperated with the FBI to investigate cyber threats.

"Then the FBI cloned it," says Phyllis Schneck, chairman of the board of directors of the InfraGard National Members Alliance, and the prime mover behind the growth of InfraGard over the last several years.

InfraGard itself is still an FBI operation, with FBI agents in each state overseeing the local InfraGard chapters. (There are now eighty-six of them.) The alliance is a nonprofit organization of private sector InfraGard members.

"We are the owners, operators, and experts of our critical infrastructure, from the CEO of a large company in agriculture or high finance to the guy who turns the valve at the water utility," says Schneck, who by day is the vice president of research integration at Secure Computing.


Israeli and US death squads infesting the world

Stuart Littlewood considers the increasing use of assassination by the US and Israel, and reports that Israeli murder squads have been authorized to enter "friendly" countries, including Britain, and kill enemies of the racist Jews-only state of Israel.

Hunger, despair take hold in Myanmar

Apparently the Myanmar government has made a very cold and calculated decision that a sick, hungry, and weakened populace is much less likely to strike out against it than one which is healthy and robust, and at least - to some degree - taken care of by its government after some kind of national disaster.


House passes bill to sue OPEC over oil prices

The House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved legislation on Tuesday allowing the Justice Department to sue OPEC members for limiting oil supplies and working together to set crude prices, but the White House threatened to veto the measure.

Have members of the House gone completely insane, or is this simply some calculated posturing ahead of the election?

The problem here is the decline of the dollar; something the folks in Washington haven't been able to remedy.

Clueless in America

Ignorance in the United States is not just bliss, it's widespread. A recent survey of teenagers by the education advocacy group Common Core found that a quarter could not identify Adolf Hitler, a third did not know that the Bill of Rights guaranteed freedom of speech and religion, and fewer than half knew that the Civil War took place between 1850 and 1900.

Anyone who thinks knowledge is a dangerous thing needs to take another look at ignorance.


Judge rules schools' purpose is to train loyalty to the state

From the March 2008 Idaho Observer:

"A primary purpose of the educational system is to train school children in good citizenship, patriotism and loyalty to the state and the nation as a means of protecting the public welfare," the judge wrote, quoting from a 1961 case on a similar issue.

Neocons Admit that "War On Terror" Is a Hoax

Key war on terror architect Douglas Feith has now confirmed Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz and Wesley Clark in admitting that the so-called War on Terror is a hoax.

In fact, starting right after 9/11 -- at the latest -- the goal has always been to create "regime change" and instability in Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya, Sudan, Somalia and Lebanon so as to protect Israel. And the goal was never really to destroy Al Qaeda.

As reported in a new article in Asia Times:

Three weeks after the September 11, 2001, terror attacks, former US defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld established an official military objective of not only removing the Saddam Hussein regime by force but overturning the regime in Iran, as well as in Syria and four other countries in the Middle East, according to a document quoted extensively in then-under secretary of defense for policy Douglas Feith's recently published account of the Iraq war decisions. Feith's account further indicates that this aggressive aim of remaking the map of the Middle East by military force and the threat of force was supported explicitly by the country's top military leaders.

Feith's book, War and Decision, released last month, provides excerpts of the paper Rumsfeld sent to President George W Bush on September 30, 2001, calling for the administration to focus not on taking down Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda network but on the aim of establishing "new regimes" in a series of states...

***

General Wesley Clark, who commanded the North Atlantic Treaty Organization bombing campaign in the Kosovo war, recalls in his 2003 book Winning Modern Wars being told by a friend in the Pentagon in November 2001 that the list of states that Rumsfeld and deputy secretary of defense Paul Wolfowitz wanted to take down included Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya, Sudan and Somalia [and Lebanon].

"Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It's classified information." -- US official quoted in Carl Cameron's Fox News report on the Israeli spy ring and its connections to 9-11.


Rumsfeld On Tape: Terror Attack Could Restore Neo-Con Agenda

Shocking excerpts of confidential recordings recently released under the Freedom of Information Act feature former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld talking with top military analysts about how a flagging Neo-Con political agenda could be successfully restored with the aid of another terrorist attack on America.

The tape also includes a conversation where Rumsfeld and the military analysts agree on the possible necessity of installing a brutal dictator in Iraq to oversee U.S. interests.

OK: This is how these people think, and how absolutely contemptuous they are of their fellow Americans.


Pentagon Releases Propaganda Documents -- Will the Media Pay Attention?

Eight thousand pages of documents related to the Pentagon's illegal propaganda campaign, known as the Pentagon military analyst program, are now online for the world to see, although in a format that makes it impossible to easily search them and therefore difficult to read and dissect. This trove includes the documents pried out of the Pentagon by David Barstow and used as the basis for his stunning investigation that appeared in the New York Times on April 20, 2008.

'Deafening' silence on analyst story

New NSA Whistleblower Tells of Faulty WMD Evidence

Even with countless media outlets available these days, a Sunday New York Times cover story could always be counted on to send a jolt through the television news cycle.

But apparently that's no longer the case. Indeed, reporter David Barstow's 7,600-word investigation of the Pentagon's military analyst program -- whereby ex-military talking heads, often with direct ties to contractors, parroted Defense Department talking points on the air -- has been noticeably absent from television airwaves since the story broke on April 20.

David Murfee Faulk was a translator in the Navy, working in Arabic and Iraqi dialect. In April 2004 he began working for the National Security Agency (NSA) at Fort Gordon outside Augusta, Georgia. (He now writes, under the name Murfee Faulk, for the Metro Spirit newspaper in Augusta, but he has never written about what he did for the NSA.)

Faulk says that in May 2004 he found an extremely large text file containing grid coordinates for alleged chemical weapons sites in Iraq. Faulk showed it to his supervisor, who was surprised. But he was not surprised that the file existed, only that it had not been deleted. The supervisor said he had believed all such files had been deleted, and that there had been a great many of them. In fact, according to this supervisor, U.S. Special Forces had gone to the locations and found nothing.

That's what usually happens, Faulk's supervisor told him, when you get something from the Israelis. "Four out of five times it's complete and total bullshit."


US confession: Weapons were not made in Iran after all

In a sharp reversal of its longstanding accusations against Iran arming militants in Iraq , the US military has made an unprecedented albeit quiet confession: the weapons they had recently found in Iraq were not made in Iran at all.


Talabani: Iran sends no weapon to Iraq

Iraqi President Jalal Talabani has dismissed claims that Iran is sending weapons into his country and called for strong Iran ties.

"Those who make such claims against Iran only express their personal views which don't reflect those of the Iraqi government," he said in interview with the Al-Arabiya TV on Friday.

"I, as the president of Iraq, do not agree with such views," he added.

Well, so much for the US charge that Iran is passing weapons into Iraq.

In fact, they had to cancel a news conference a couple of days ago which was supposed to present "clear evidence" of such a claim, because they couldn't find any Iranian made weapons to be used as evidence.


ElBaradei: Iran not after bomb

Unfortunately, anything ElBaradei says will be discarded or belittled by the US and Israel.

They may even try the same slimy tactics they used on his predecessor Hans Blix, where they attempted to smear him to discredit what he had to say professionally about Iraq not having WMDS.

Hans Blix was absolutely telling the truth; ElBaradei is doing the same with Iran.

But for the US and Israel, it is a very inconvenient truth.


Nabbed!!! Iranian intelligence catch CIA network of saboteur thugs

Nelson Mandela et son parti figurent encore sur les listes noires américaines

Aussi incroyable que cela puisse paraître, Nelson Mandela, le leader historique du Congrès national africain (ANC), et son parti figurent encore sur les listes noires américaines. Quatorze ans après la fin de l’Apartheid, le prix Nobel de la paix est encore considéré, à 90 ans, comme un terroriste aux États-Unis.

Ce n’est que la semaine dernière que la commission des Affaires étrangères du Sénat a présenté un projet de loi pour lever ces restrictions. L’Histoire, aux États-Unis, est souvent occultée. Il est vrai que, en janvier 2003, lors d’un discours au International Women’s Forum, Mandela s’était opposé fermement à l’attaque des États-Unis et du Royaume-Uni contre l’Irak sans l’aval des Nations unies. Il avait accusé le président George W. Bush de vouloir « plonger le monde dans l’holocauste ».

Somalia: Deadly battle rages between Ethiopia soldiers, insurgents

Local villagers reported that the battle lasted for nearly two hours, as Ethiopian soldiers exchanged a barrage of gunfire and artillery with Islamist insurgents.

There were heavy casualties on both sides of the conflict, according to villagers, but casualty figures were difficult to obtain because of the fierce fighting.

The US is essentially backing the Ethiopian Christians against the Muslim Somalians, and the resulting slaughter on both sides in this administration's so-called "war on terror". has been horrendous..

What we have here is absolutely not a war on terror; this is a war against people sitting over the resources this government seems to think we have the right to have, to the point of killing for it.


Cheney/Bandar/Elliot Abrams Funded Terrorist Group Now At War in Lebanon

In an interview with CNN on Tuesday, May 22, New Yorker magazine investigative journalist Seymour Hersh repeated charges he published in that magazine in March, that the Bush Administration has been working with Saudi Arabia to arm Sunni fundamentalist cells, to fight Hezbollah. The recent explosion of violence in northern Lebanon between the Lebanese Army and the previously little-known group Fatah al-Islam, is but the latest example of this rotten collusion, Hersh charged.

This might backfire. Hezbollah might actually win.


US plan for Lebanon attack revealed

Pundits say Israel failed to go ahead with the plan because of the military deterrence of Hezbollah.


White House denies Army Radio report on plan to attack Iran

The White House on Tuesday flatly denied an Army Radio report that claimed US President George W. Bush intends to attack Iran before the end of his term. It said that while the military option had not been taken off the table, the Administration preferred to resolve concerns about Iran's push for a nuclear weapon "through peaceful diplomatic means."

... while ignoring the fact that nobody has any proof Iran is doing any such thing (unlike Israel, which cranks those puppies out of that factory hidden under Dimona).

Israel eyes dangers, opportunities in Hizbullah takeover of Lebanon

Vice Premier Haim Ramon told the ministers that "Lebanon must be treated as a Hizbullah state. Everything that happens there is the responsibility of Hizbullah. The country is controlled by this terrorist organization, and its government has become irrelevant."

Translation: Israel is itching for an opportunity to fight Hezbullah in Lebanon again.

This PR campaign is to prepare Israel - and the world - for a coming military strike inside Lebanon.


Heavy fighting breaks out in north Lebanon

Heavy fighting broke out Monday between government supporters and opponents in Lebanon's second-largest city, where the two sides battled with rocket-propelled grenades, heavy machine guns and mortars, security officials and residents said.

The question here is, how long before Israel declares the UN-decreed moratorium "null and void", and decides it has to go in for a "pre-emptive" strike in the name of "self defense.


Hezbollah imposes control on Beirut

The Iranian-backed Lebanese group Hezbollah took control of the Muslim half of Beirut on Friday, tightening its grip on the city in a major blow to the U.S.-backed government.

"Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed Iranian-backed..." -- Official White Horse Souse


Hezbollah overruns west Beirut as Lebanon on brink

If Hezbollah takes control of Lebanon, expect Israel to attack .. and drag the US into another war.


Hezbollah fighters sweep over much of Beirut's Muslim sector

Unchallenged by Lebanon's army, the Iranian-backed Hezbollah routed Sunnis loyal to the U.S.-allied government and seized control of large swaths of Beirut's Muslim sector Friday in a telling demonstration of its military prowess.

This may turn out to be a major foreign policy blunder. As part of the ongoing "Let's you and him fight" strategy of pitting the Sunni and Shia against each other in order to have them kill each other off, the US supported the Sunnis and manuevered them into an attack on Hezbollah. But as the Israelis already found out two summers ago, Hezbollah is a lot tougher than expected, and Lebanon could easily fall under Hezbollah control. This will make Israel VERY UNHAPPY. You kids be expected to deal with the mess.


US: Hezbollah must be 'accountable' for Lebanon unrest

The United States has blamed Hezbollah as well as its patrons Iran and Syria for deadly unrest that has pushed Lebanon to the edge of civil war, and warned they must be held "accountable."

"Did I mention Iran? Good. I gotta mention Iran. We may have charlie foxtrotted Lebanon by pushing the Sunni to attack Hezbollah, but we still have a shot at getting into Iran before I get kicked out of leave office." -- Official White Horse Souse


Sy Hersh confirms: Syrian facility bombed by Israel was not nuclear

In a follow-up report, Alexandrovna added that Vice President Dick Cheney was suspected of being behind leaks to the press of misleading claims of a nuclear basis for the incident.


Are these Syrian nuclear pictures faked?

Bloggers supportive of the CIA acknowledge that the first picture was digitally enhanced but say that the CIA never claimed last week that it was untouched.

So now, we can expect that everything that the CIA offers as "evidence" to sell the American people another war has been in some way compromised, unless they have specifically stated that it is not?!?

Unflipping believable.


Assad says facility Israel bombed not nuclear: paper

"Is it logical? A nuclear site did not have protection with surface to air defenses? A nuclear site within the footprint of satellites in the middle of Syria in an open area in the desert?" Assad asked Qatar's al-Watan newspaper in an interview conducted before the U.S. accusations were made.

Note that web resources have stopped running the pictures they originally ran, of the facilitiy, because the photos showed that there was no cooling tower, which is an absolutely critical component of a nuclear reactor.


Pictures From the CIA "Syrian Reactor" Show

Looking at the photo of the two men in front of the car. Look at the license plate on the car. Doesn't look like it quite lines up correctly, does it.

More from http://www.juancole.com

"The alleged reactor is described, because of its dimensions and shape, as a duplicate of the North Korean reactor at Yongbyon. The reactor at Yongbyon is a rough copy of an old British design. It is graphite-moderated and cooled with gaseous carbon dioxide. Its core is composed of a large number of highly-purified graphite blocks. For example, each of the first two Magnox reactors at Windscale in the UK used 2,000 tons of graphite. Even if this purported Syrian reactor vessel were half the size of one of the original UK reactors, it would require roughly 1,000 tons of graphite. That's 14,400 cubic feet of highly-purified graphite. Would all official entities fail to notice the production and transfer of that amount of highly-refined graphite to Syria?

"The voice-over on the CIA videotape asserts that the reactor in Syria was "nearly completed." If the plant were "nearly completed," those graphite blocks would have been substantially in place. Bombing and fire would have spread bits of carbon all over the site, or scattered whole blocks of graphite around the site. The "after" photos didn't seem to indicate that this happened.

"If the reactor were substantially complete, neutron-absorbing boron-10 carbide (or possibly cadmium alloy) control rods would have been installed. Had those been burned or exploded in the bombing, those, too, would have left a chemical signature on the hills surrounding the site and in the prevailing winds. As far as I know, this hasn't been discussed.

"Then, too, there is the matter of fuel rods. Syria is reported not to have uranium yellowcake stocks in appreciable quantities. (One particularly large phosphorite field, the Charkiet formation, is known to contain uranium, but the phosphate fertilizer plant built to process that ore was done by a Swedish company which would certainly alert the IAEA if there were non-compliant diversion. Moreover, Syria has cooperated with the IAEA in the past to develop its commercial uranium extraction processes, but those have not progressed, according to SIPRI.) There's no evidence presented that Syria has built fuel processing and fuel rod assembly facilities. That would suggest production elsewhere, and such production can be tracked. So, if it was almost complete, where are the fuel rods?

"The primary weapons benefit of such a reactor is its ability to be refueled on the fly, so to speak (it's necessary to get the fuel rods out of the reactor before the optimum quantity of plutonium-239 is degraded by neutron capture to less suitable isotopes), so, why does U.S. intelligence say they have "low confidence" that the plutonium that might be produced is for nuclear weapons? It must be that Syria does not have the necessary fuel processing, fuel rod assembly and spent fuel reprocessing plants, and there's no evidence of bomb-manufacturing facilities (all this infrastructure should ideally go forward concurrent with fuel production to produce a bomb in the shortest period of time); does this suggest that the purpose of the facility might not be nuclear in nature, or that it was nuclear, but would have had a non-weapons purpose? If there's no evidence for the existence of the rest of a weapons-making complex, how credible is the claim of "near completion" of a reactor which is well-suited for producing plutonium?

"So far, the government's primary evidence seems to be a photo of a North Korean who is reputed to be NK nuclear scientist Chon Chibu, standing next to someone "believed to be his Syrian counterpart" (quote from the London Times). That photo, as well as others, likely was provided by the Mossad, so its provenance is in question. Given that the Israelis bombed the site, one can't evade the reality that they're an interested party in the matter.


Assad says facility Israel bombed not nuclear

"Is it logical? A nuclear site did not have protection with surface to air defenses? A nuclear site within the footprint of satellites in the middle of Syria in an open area in the desert?" Assad asked Qatar's al-Watan newspaper in an interview conducted before the U.S. accusations were made.

At that stage, he was commenting on media reports that said the target was a nuclear site. "The truth is that the raid was at a military site under construction," Assad said in the interview. "We are against mass destruction weapons for Israel, Iran or others."

Assad said it was illogical for Syria to seek a nuclear bomb. "Where would we use it? On Israel it would kill the Palestinians. I do not see this as logical."

A reminder that when Israel bombed the Osiric reactor it was with the claim that Iraq was secretly building nuclear weapons underneath the reactor complex (as Israel does under Dimona). Following the invasion of Iraq, UN inspectors visited the ruins of the Osiric reactor (it is being used as a mushroom farm now) and failed to find any evidence to support Israel's claims.

UN inspectors are still forbidden to inspect the reactor at Dimona.


The Media Falls for Fake News Once Again Syrian Nukes: the Phantom Menace

Are the wonderful mainstream media, who gave us Saddam's mythical Weapons of Mass Destruction, lying to us again? The answer is yes.

If at first you don't succeed, lie, lie again!


Israel's Syrian Air Strike Was Aimed at Iran

Until late October, the accepted explanation about the Sept. 6 Israeli air strike in Syria, constructed in a series of press leaks from U.S. officials, was that it was prompted by dramatic satellite intelligence that Syria was building a nuclear facility with help from North Korea.

But new satellite evidence has discredited that narrative, suggesting a more plausible explanation for the strike: that it was a calculated effort by Israel and the United States to convince Iran that its nuclear facilities could be attacked as well.


White House: Syria reactor not for 'peaceful' purposes

"This will be a ridiculous and pathetic charade," Imad Moustafa told CNN, saying Syria has never had any nuclear project. "This is exactly the same story as Iraq and its weapons of mass destruction," he said. "There is a proven record of this administration to fabricate lies."

It is getting bad when Syria has more credibility than our own government.


more backpedalling on the [Syria nuclear facility] video

A US official, requesting anonymity, told AFP: "There are still photographs of the facility as part of the video, but it's a video presentation, like, a PowerPoint presentation. It's not a video of the facility."


US Blames Syria And Iran For Battles

The White House has accused Iran and Syria of fuelling violence in Lebanon by inciting Hezbollah to take up arms against the country's pro-western government.

No, what has happened is that the US had their puppet in Lebanon start to attack Hezbollah's infrastructure to make way for a new Israeli invasion. And now that it looks like Hezbollah might actually prove tougher than expected, the US (as usual) looks for someone else to blame.

The US is trying to put the blame for the Lebanon melt-down onto designated patsies Iran and Syria, but the reality is that the US has been playing their usual covert games, and it just blew up on their faces.


US says Syria, Iran behind Lebanon violence

The Bush administration accused Iran and Syria on Friday of fueling ongoing violence in Lebanon by inciting members of the radical Shiite Hezbollah movement to take up arms against the country's western-backed government.

We saw that one coming a mile away.


Iran accuses US, Israel of provoking Lebanon violence

Iran on Friday accused the United States and Israel of fueling the deadly sectarian fighting in Lebanon between its Shiite militant Hezbollah ally and the Western-backed ruling majority. ADVERTISEMENT "Adventurous efforts and interventions by the United States and the Zionist regime are the main cause of the continuous chaotic situation in Lebanon," foreign ministry spokesman Mohammad Ali Hosseini said.


Suddenly, an Iranian plane landing at Beirut airport and America threaten penalties

United States threatened by a representative of the Security Council "Zalmay Khalilzad" impose sanctions against Hezbollah and the countries supporting him in a reference to Syria and Iran, at a time when an Iranian aircraft landed at dawn yesterday in Beirut airport, abruptly.

Zalmay Khalilzad (along with Hamid Karzai) is one of the Unocal consultants who went before Congress and demanded regime change in Afghanistan because the Taliban would not sell them the right of way for a petroleum pipeline at the price the consortium wanted to pay.

Funny how these oil company guys wound up as ambassadors and heads of state.


U.S. declines to help present nuclear deal to Iran

World powers will in the coming days offer a revised package of incentives to Iran but Washington has refused to send its own envoy to help present the deal, diplomats and a U.S. official said on Thursday.

"Dammit, we wanna INVADE, not pussyfoot around with this 'negotiatins' crap!!!" -- Official White Horse Souse


War With Iran Might Be Closer Than You Think

The US demanded that Iran admit that it has been interfering in Iraq and also commit itself to taking steps to end the support of various militant groups. There was also a warning about interfering in Lebanon. The Iranian government reportedly responded quickly, restating its position that it would not discuss the matter until the US ceases its own meddling employing Iranian dissident groups. The perceived Iranian intransigence coupled with the Lebanese situation convinced the White House that some sort of unambiguous signal has to be sent to the Iranian leadership, presumably in the form of cruise missiles.

It is to be presumed that the attack will be as "pinpoint" and limited as possible, intended to target only al-Qods and avoid civilian casualties.

Do policy makers in this country think that Iran will not retaliate?

This potential attack can plunge the region into a wider war (if not a world war), and will put our military in Iraq far more deeply in harm's way than they are already.

And let's talk about the five thousand pound elephant in the room that no one wants to talk about: Russia.

Russian diplomats have said, and continue to say, that an attack against Iran will be perceived as an attack against Russia.

Is the leadership of this country so insane as to think that war with Russia (which does have nukes) is a really good idea??

For the sake of the survival of this country, one would hope not.


Former UN weapons inspector says attack on Iran 'virtual guarantee'

Former UN weapons inspector Scott Ritter, who was among the original experts to question Bush Administration claims that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, now says he believes an attack on Iran is a "virtual guarantee."

The problem is a simple one. The US (the Neocons) embarked on this program to conquer the Middle East's oil and to shatter any and all threats to Israel. They bet the entire country on this project, and they are in too far to simply quit. If they walk away, the US will collapse not only from the economic strain but from the political strain of having lost yet another war, this one of our own making. The only option available to our so-called leadership is to keep throwing money and other peoples' children into the desert and hope for the best. In another 7 months, it will be someone else's war to lose. As for Israel, they have no problem at all with destroying the US in service to their wars. Better our kids than their own. Even better if the two remaining threats to Israel's domination of the Middle East, the US and Russia, should blow each other up in a mutually destructive nuclear war. And if the US economy collapses, Israel, grown fat on US tax dollars, will simply come back in and buy up the country at fire-sale prices. Such a deal!


United States is drawing up plans to strike on Iranian insurgency camp

he US military is drawing up plans for a "surgical strike" against an insurgent training camp inside Iran if Republican Guards continue with attempts to destabilise Iraq, western intelligence sources said last week. One source said the Americans were growing increasingly angry at the involvement of the Guards' special-operations Quds force inside Iraq, training Shi'ite militias and smuggling weapons into the country.

To paraphrase Gertrude Stein "An attack on Iran is an attack on Iran is an attack on Iran">

And let me break down precisely what will happen if the US does yield to the urge of this madness

1. The Persian Gulf will shut down completely, cutting us off from much of our oil.

2. This attack will leave our soldiers ever more in harm's way in Iraq, because all the various factions will unite against us.

3. As much as most Iranians don't like Ahmedinejad, they will rally around him in the face of a foreign attack.

4. Russia (which does have nukes - lots of them) may well defend Iran, as their diplomats have stated in no uncertain terms that an attack against Iran will be perceived as an attack against Russia..

5. This could well erupt into a much larger regional war.

Anyone in the state department, or executive of the US would even begin consider this a rational move should be collectively be removed from office, per the 25th amendment to the Constitution.


U.S. Planning Big New Prison in Afghanistan

The Pentagon is moving forward with plans to build a new, 40-acre detention complex on the main American military base in Afghanistan, officials said, in a stark acknowledgment that the United States is likely to continue to hold prisoners overseas for years to come.

Translation: this administration is planning for US forces to be in Afghanistan for a very, very, very long time.


Palestinian mother and 4 children killed in Gaza carnage


Psychopaths always blame their victims

I'm sure you haven't heard on TV news that the IDF killed a Palestinian family of four small children and their mother, among others, as they were getting ready to eat breakfast. I mean, if an Israeli family was killed we'd be hearing about it non-stop; but this was just a Palestinian mother and her four little children. Just some collateral damage...


Israel is suppressing a secret it must face

Standing near one of these long, stinking brown-and-yellow rivers of waste recently, the local chief medical officer, Dr Bassam Said Nadi, explained to me: "Recently there were very heavy rains, and the shit started to flow into the reservoir that provides water for this whole area. I knew that if we didn't act, people would die. We had to alert everyone not to drink the water for over a week, and distribute bottles. We were lucky it was spotted. Next time..." He shook his head in fear. This is no freak: a 2004 report by Friends of the Earth found that only six per cent of Israeli settlements adequately treat their sewage.

Meanwhile, in order to punish the population of Gaza for voting "the wrong way", the Israeli army are not allowing past the checkpoints any replacements for the pipes and cement needed to keep the sewage system working. The result? Vast stagnant pools of waste are being held within fragile dykes across the strip, and rotting. Last March, one of them burst, drowning a nine-month-old baby and his elderly grandmother in a tsunami of human waste. The Centre on Housing Rights warns that one heavy rainfall could send 1.5m cubic metres of faeces flowing all over Gaza, causing "a humanitarian and environmental disaster of epic proportions".

So how did it come to this? How did a Jewish state founded 60 years ago with a promise to be "a light unto the nations" end up flinging its filth at a cowering Palestinian population?

One of the biggest problems with the Israelis is that they can no longer confront what has been done in their names. They have to resort to denial, bolstered with alcohol, and scream abut how everything is just the way God wants it to be.

Tensions in the north? Lebanon says 'enemy' airplanes violated its airspace Monday, flew over Lebanese cities; Meanwhile, Israel complains that UNIFIL forces fail to report illegal Hizbullah activities.

Unfortunately for the Lebanese people, it looks as though Israel, right on cue, is about to create a situation where there will blame UNFIL and Hezbollah about not sticking to the terms of the cease-fire, and go in again with guns and bombs blazing.


Israeli military vehicles enter Lebanon

In defiance of the United Nations Security Council's Resolution 1701, three Israeli armored vehicles have entered Lebanese territory.


Lebanese army opens fire on Israeli jets

The Lebanese army has opened fire on Israeli jets as they flew over the south of the country in violation of Lebanon's airspace.

Why was Israel violating Lebanon's airspace?

Is this a rehearsal for another completely unprovoked Israeli attack on Lebanon?

Canadian university had banned the term "Israeli Apartheid" as "hate speech"

One of the most shocking indications of this repressive atmosphere is a campaign by Zionist organizations to convince university administrations to ban the phrase "Israeli Apartheid". At McMaster University in Hamilton, for example, students organizing IAW events on their campuses were issued with a letter from the Provost office informing them that the university had banned the term "Israeli Apartheid" from use by student clubs. This effectively ended their participation in the week as they were then barred from attaining the necessary approval to advertise, book rooms, etc. A massive mobilization by students and community allies forced the university to backtrack from this position. Nevertheless, letters and articles by Zionist organizations and supporters continue to appear in local Hamilton newspapers calling for further repression.

Carter may have used the term "Israeli Apartheid", but I believe that it may have been Bishop Desmond Tutu to characterize it this way.

Bishop Tutu, was one of the great champions of freedom for all South Africans, right along with Nelson Mandela.

And if Bishop Tutu describes what he sees happening with the Palestinian people as "Israeli Apartheid", trust me; this guy is in a really solid position to know.

Criticism of Israel is anti-Semitic, Harper says

Some of the criticism brewing in Canada against the state of Israel, including from some members of Parliament, is similar to the attitude of Nazi Germany in the Second World War, Prime Minister Stephen Harper warned yesterday.

Translation: "Yeah, well, okay, maybe Israel IS an apartheid state, but you can't SAY that!"

Unbelieveable! "al-Qaeda" Dismisses Conspiracy Theories, Defends Israel, Attacks Iran and Hizbollah!

Every time a member of the US or Israeli government expounded on the "Muslim terror threat to freedom and democracy everywhere", soon afterwards "al-Qaeda" obligingly popped up with a new video or statement in which they threatened freedom and democracy.

As the massive holes in the US government's official story of the 9/11 attacks continue to widen, and sites like Sott.net continue to point to the real culprits in Tel Aviv and Washington DC, disembodied internet voices that US government officials "believe to be that of Osama bin laden", set the record straight and claim responsibility. In spite of such strenuous efforts to fool the entire world, fewer and fewer people are buying the terror hysteria, and recently the desperation on the part of the Ziocons has begun to show.

On April 22, the CIA/Mossad chose to have Mr. Magoo stand-in and "al-Qaeda number 2" "al-Zawahiri", do something which, until now, was almost unthinkable.

U.N. Official Calls for Study Of Neocons' Role in 9/11

A new U.N. Human Rights Council official assigned to monitor Israel is calling for an official commission to study the role neoconservatives may have played in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

"Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It's classified information." -- US official quoted in Carl Cameron's Fox News report on the Israeli spy ring and its connections to 9-11.


Obliteration Obscenity

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton warned Tehran that if she were president, the United States could "totally obliterate" Iran in retaliation for a nuclear strike against Israel.'

Not up close and personal obliteration, that would spatter one's coiffure with bloodspots and gore, but remotely, dispassionately...all seventy million Iranians, mostly young, and mostly progressive, just like ourselves; men, women and children; human, all too human.

Unlike you, Madam, one of the fabled six percent of the population, the psychopaths. Your body count is already impressive, if one can believe reports. Though you may not be forbad to wade through slaughter to a throne, you are forbad to wade beyond it. To threaten obliteration of peaceful civilian populations, is terrorism. To act it, is a war-crime under the Nurenberg Principles.


Petraeus Promotion Frees Cheney to Threaten Iran

Petraeus has proved himself willing to cooperate closely with the White House policy lines on Iraq and Iran, arguing against any post-surge reduction in troop strength policy and blaming Iran for challenges to the U.S. military presence. Along with the deference to Petraeus in Congress and the media, his pliability on those issues made him the obvious choice to replace Fallon.

The big question, here, is that of timing.

One has to wonder just how close to the November election date Cheney would be willing to "bomb, bomb, bomb....bomb, bomb Iran." once Petraeus is in place.

And what happens if the attack goes horrendously wrong, or Russia decides to join forces with the Iranian military to protect its investments and assets there?


Cheney's old firm, KBR, accused of stealing artwork, gold, and weapons in Baghdad.

KBR employees working in Iraq stole weapons, artwork and even gold to make spurs for cowboy boots, two former company workers told Senate Democrats on Monday.

Appearing before a Democrats-only panel looking into allegations of contracting abuses in Iraq, the witnesses accused their former co-workers of widespread improper activity.

KBR spokeswoman Heather Browne said the company would not comment at length because the claims are part of ongoing lawsuits.

"The witnesses who testified today raised claims that KBR has previously addressed. The government has reviewed the claims and refused to join lawsuits asserting them," Browne said.

The Bushes and Hitler's Appeasement

The irony of George W. Bush going before the Knesset and mocking the late Sen. William Borah for expressing surprise at Adolf Hitler's 1939 invasion of Poland is that Bush's own family played a much bigger role assisting the Nazis.


Bush Compares Obama To Nazi Appeasers

President Bush has said repeatedly that he would not insert himself into the presidential race, but that stance changed dramatically today during his trip to Israel. After likening Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to Osama bin Laden, Bush compared Barack Obama to Nazi appeasers:

Paul Craig Roberts: Lies of Aggression

Bellicosity and Hypocrisy in Tel Aviv

Lies of Aggression

By PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS

Paul Craig Roberts was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan administration. He was Associate Editor of the Wall Street Journal editorial page and Contributing Editor of National Review.

On May 15, the White House Moron, in a war-planning visit to Israel, justified the naked aggression he and Olmert are planning against Iran as the only alternative to “the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history.”

But the White House Moron has the roles reversed. It is not Iran that is threatening war. It is Bush. It is not Bush who is appeasing. It is Iran.

Iran has not responded in kind to any of Bush’s warlike moves and provocations. Iran has not sunk a single one of our sitting duck ships and has not given the Iraqi insurgents any weapons that would easily turn the tide of war against the US.

It is Bush, not Iran, who sounds like Adolf Hitler blustering and threatening. It is Bush’s American Brownshirts, the neocons, who express the view: “what’s the good of nuclear weapons if you can’t use them.”

It is the US that is funding assassination teams inside Iran and using taxpayer dollars to fund dissident and violent organizations opposed to the Iranian government. Iran is doing no such thing here.

It is members of the Bush Regime and US generals who continue to lie through their teeth about Iranian support for insurgents, for which they can supply no evidence, and about Iranian nuclear weapons programs, for which the IAEA inspectors can find no sign.


TURKEY: DISCOVERY OF 12,000-YEAR-OLD TEMPLE COMPLEX COULD ALTER THEORY OF HUMAN DEVELOPMENT

Compared to Stonehenge, Britain's most famous prehistoric site, they are humble affairs. None of the circles excavated (four out of an estimated 20) are more than 30 meters across. What makes the discovery remarkable are the carvings of boars, foxes, lions, birds, snakes and scorpions, and their age. Dated at around 9,500 BC, these stones are 5,500 years older than the first cities of Mesopotamia, and 7,000 years older than Stonehenge.

Chinese build secret nuclear submarine base

China has secretly built a major underground nuclear submarine base that could threaten Asian countries and challenge American power in the region, it can be disclosed.

"This is a challenge to any hegemonic power, particularly the US which still remains dominant in the region."

It amazes me that the US and UK can embark on a program of belligerence across the globe, invading innocent country after innocent country, then when other nations start making what are prudent preparations to counter the obvious militarism of the US/UK/Israel, everyone acts like it's a huge surprise and a provocation.

What is China SUPPOSED to do? Open the gates and roll out the red carpet for our invading hordes?

Lawmakers Have Nearly $200M Invested In Companies Doing Defense-Related Work

Members of Congress have as much as $196 million collectively invested in companies doing business with the Defense Department, earning millions since the onset of the Iraq war, according to a study by a nonpartisan research group.

In other words, they are voting themselves rich on your tax dollars.

Congress members have, in the main, simply become "acquisitions" of the defense industry.

They not only own stock in these companies: they also gladly accept any money and perks, covert or overt, (covert being favored) which these companies want to give them for "favors" down the road.


151 Congressmen Profit From War

More than a quarter of senators and congressmen have invested at least $196 million of their own money in companies doing business with the Department of Defense (DoD) that profit from the death and destruction in Iraq.

Cell Phone Spying: Is Your Life Being Monitored?

Eavesdropping is easy. All it takes is a two-minute software install and someone can record your calls and monitor your text messages. They can even set up systems to be automatically alerted when you dial a certain number, then instantly patched into your conversation. Anyone who can perform a basic internet search can find the tools and figure out how to do it in no time.

But the scarier stuff is what your phone can do when you aren't even using it.


Corporate Spies Killing The CIA

The CIA is having a growing problem with their analysts and spies being recruited away by corporations. One unpleasant, for government intelligence agencies, development of the last few decades has been the growing popularity of "competitive intelligence" (corporate espionage.) It's a really big business, with most large (over a billion dollars of annual sales) corporations having separate intelligence operations. Spending on corporate intel work is over $5 billion a year, and is expected to more than double in the next four years.


IT'S DANGEROUS TO TALK AND EAT AT THE SAME TIME

WHILE the Patriot Act has raised fears about government spying on ordinary citizens, the growing threat to civil liberties posed by corporate spying has received much less attention. During the late 1990s, a private security firm spied on Greenpeace and other environmental groups, examining activists' phone records and even sending undercover agents to infiltrate the groups, according to an article in Mother Jones. In 2006 Hewlett-Packard was caught spying on journalists. Last year Wal-Mart apologized for improperly recording conversations with a New York Times reporter.

And now it turns out that the Burger King Corporation, home of the Whopper, hired a private security firm to spy on the Student/Farmworker Alliance, a group of idealistic college students trying to improve the lives of migrants in Florida.

National "DNA warehouse" bill passes

Passing the House of Representatives on a voice vote, S. 1858 has been sent to President Bush for signature. The Newborn Genetic Screening bill was passed by the Senate last December. The bill violates the U.S. Constitution and the Nuremberg Code, writes Twila Brase, president of the Citizen's Council on Health Care (CCHC). "The DNA taken at birth from every citizen is essentially owned by the government, and every citizen becomes a potential subject of government-sponsored genetic research," she states.


Bush seeks to limit military lawyers' independence

The Bush administration is escalating a conflict over the independence of military lawyers who have repeatedly raised objections to White House policies over prisoners held as enemy combatants.

The administration has proposed a regulation requiring "coordination" with politically appointed Pentagon lawyers before the promotion of any member of the Judge Advocate General Corps, the military's 4,000-member uniformed legal force.

Programs Which the Government Claims Are Aimed At Foreign Enemies are being Used Against American Citizens within the United States


The U.S. government has repeatedly claimed that it was launching aggressive programs solely at foreign enemies, and then launched them at American citizens. For example:

Can anyone see a pattern here?

Given the above, should we believe that the following programs will just be limited to foreigners?

  • The Air Force is seeking to dominate all computers and the Internet, to be able to take over control of every computer, and to turn computers into "zombies" that can be forced to execute Air Force commands. This is supposed to be aimed at enemy states and "rogue individuals". See this summary.
  • The Pentagon is running an artificial intelligence program to see how people will react to propaganda and to government-inflicted terror. The program is called Sentient World Simulation:

DHS Wants to Spy on Americans, Dems Charge

In a letter to three colleagues obtained by ABC News, House Homeland Security Chairman Bennie Thompson, Miss., and Rep. Jane Harman, Calif., voiced objections to a new office DHS wants to create that would share the detailed surveillance capabilities of military intelligence satellites and other monitoring technology with state and local law enforcement.

The two urged their colleagues to bar funding for the program, which they said would likely violate long-standing laws prohibiting military involvement in peacetime law enforcement. Current law bars money for the program until Congress' auditors review and approve a legal argument from DHS justifying the office, which is expected later this year.

We the People do not need more surveillance, thank you very much.

We need to be out from under a tax burden that is squeezing most of us to the breaking point, and for which we receive very darn little.

DHS Wants to Install Permanent Checkpoint in Vermont


Source: WCAX CBS

Homeland Security wants to build a permanent immigration checkpoint in central Vermont.

An exact location has not been revealed, but officials say it would be similar to this one that used to be on Interstate 91 in Hartford. Agents use the check points to search for illegal immigrants, drugs smugglers and terrorists.

Senator Patrick Leahy, D-Vermont, is blasting the idea, saying the checkpoints are useless and an inconvenience to Vermonters.


SPECIAL LICENSE PLATES ALLOW FAVORED TO EVADE TOLLS AND SPEEDING TICKETS

Nearly one million special government license plates have been issued in the state of California giving law enforcement, judges, district attorneys, politicians and their friends immunity from photo ticketing and tolls. According to an expose published yesterday in the Orange County Register newspaper, the Confidential Records Program has handed out a total of 996,716 protected plates to 1800 state and local agencies. These plates keep the identity of the vehicle owner out of the computerized databases that track ordinary motorists. This protection ensures that private red light camera companies and collection agencies for parking tickets toll road violations have no idea where to mail a ticket for nonpayment.

Sort of a newer high-tech version of the color-coded license plates they issue in Israel.

Chicago Citizens Reject Terror Drill Fearmongering

Authorities practiced processing citizens through the de facto internment camp and giving them mandatory pharmaceutical products.

Perhaps the people of Chicago's lack of enthusiasm for the drill can be explained by them waking up to the fact that these exercises are nothing more than an excuse for fat enforcers to practice shoving people around in internment camps while the local TV news shows images of people being rounded up and processed by men with big guns - all part of the conditioning for an attack we are constantly assured is "inevitable".


It heartens me to see that Chicagoans are wise to what's really going on here.
