President for the 1%: Wall St. War Chest Fuels Billion-Dollar US Election


Hurricane Sandy has caused chaos to the U.S. presidential election, with rallies cancelled and early voting disrupted. But it's the economic storm over the last few years which is worrying the electorate. RT's Marina Portnaya looks at criticism thrown at the two major candidates over their links to the rich who are still hogging the wealth of the nation.



The US people are fed to the wolves every election cycle. It's the fascist USA!

FSA Terrorists Admit on Camera to Bombing Civilian Areas in Homs Loyal to Assad During Ceasefire


This video footage taken from October 26, 2012 shows a group of "Free Syrian Army" (FSA) terrorists called the "Thoo an-Noureen" Brigade fighting in Homs, where its 'robe & sandal' wearing leader clearly states that they do not abide by any ceasefire no matter what, in reference to the Eid al-Adha ceasefire that both the Syrian government and the Syrian National Council (SNC) agreed to. The group also openly admits that it is targeting with its mortar rounds civilian areas that are loyal to the Syrian government.

India's Experimental Thorium Fuel Cycle Nuclear Reactor [NDTV Report]


Owing to the abundant availability of Thorium within the country, India has steadfastly pursued with its R&D programme to make use of its Thorium supply to generate electricity. As a result, two types of Reactors using Thorium -- the Fast-Breeder Reactor & the Thorium Cycle based Nuclear Reactors are being developed in India & India is considered one the leading countries in the field of Nuclear energy involving Thorium.

The NDTV report covered the experimental Thorium Fuel Cycle Nuclear currently in operation at the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre [BARC] in Mumbai. The deployment of Nuclear Reactors running the Thorium Fuel Cycle is part of the third stage of India's 3-Stage Nuclear programme.



A thorium reactor will be safe from meltdowns - unlike the present nuclear reactors we have dotted all over the world. Remember that the fallout from Fukushima and Chernobyl stays with our civilisation for hundreds of years. We must replace the old reactors ASAP.

Ten Questions For Obama On Benghazi


The president was, it appears, in the White House from the time the attack on the consulate in Benghazi began, at around 2:40 pm ET, until the end of combat at the annex, sometime after 9 p.m. ET. So it should be possible to answer these simple questions as to what the president did that afternoon and evening, and when he did it, simply by consulting White House meeting and phone records, and asking the president for his recollections.

1.) To whom did the president give the first of his "three very clear directives"—that is, "make sure that we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to?"

2.) How did he transmit this directive to the military and other agencies?

3.) During the time when Americans were under attack, did the president convene a formal or informal meeting of his national security council? Did the president go to the situation room?

4.) During this time, with which members of the national security team did the president speak directly?

5.) Did Obama speak by phone or teleconference with the combatant commanders who would have sent assistance to the men under attack?

6.) Did he speak with CIA director David Petraeus?

7.) Was the president made aware of the repeated requests for assistance from the men under attack? When and by whom?

8.) Did he issue any directives in response to these requests?

9.) Did the president refuse to authorize an armed drone strike on the attackers?

10.) Did the president refuse to authorize a AC-130 or MC-130 to enter Libyan airspace during the attack?

THE WEEKLY STANDARD has asked the White House these questions, and awaits a response.

Greek Police Arrest Journalist Over 'Lagarde List' Leak


Police in Greece have arrested a journalist who published a list of the country's political and business elite holding Swiss bank accounts. The whistleblower accuses the Greek government of failing to go after tax evaders, while at the same time preparing to push through more belt-tightening measures for the struggling population. Professor of Economics Yanis Varoufakis says politicians are reluctant to investigate because of their own involvement.



Greece is in crisis making this unjust situation highly relevant to the people who are suffering under austerity. The issue here, of a two class system, of politicians colluding with business men versus the middle class and poor, can be extrapolated world wide.

Whistleblower Who Revealed CIA Torture Sentenced to Prison


Former CIA agent John Kiriakou pleaded guilty Tuesday morning to crimes related to blowing the whistle on the US government’s torture of suspected terrorists and was sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Kiriakou, 48, agreed to admit to one count of disclosing information identifying a covert agent early Tuesday, just hours after his attorney entered a change of plea in an Alexandria, Virginia courtroom outside of Washington, DC.

Kiriakou was originally charged under the Espionage Act of 1917 after he went public with the Central Intelligence Agency’s use of waterboarding on captured insurgents in the wake of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack. On Monday morning, though, legal counsel for the accused former CIA agent informed the court that Kiriakou was willing to plead guilty to a lesser crime.

'US, UK Silent on Bani Walid Massacres and Chaos'


Libya's government forces claim they have taken control of the opposition stronghold Bani Walid - but say pockets of resistance still remain. That's after a weeks-long deadly assault - with reports of dozens of residents in the besieged city being killed by pro-government shelling. RT's Paula Slier has the details. Also, RT's managed to make contact with an eyewitness in the city. He says militias are carrying out mass killings, as civilians continue to call on the international community to help.



Notice the silence in the mainstream media on these massacres, and on other tyranny in the Middle East, because they are following a narrative in which the Western backed forces are the 'good guys' . The 'humanitarian' interventions have all been about playing for geopolitical (oil, finance) advantage and have next to nothing to do with the overall welfare of the people.

RECAP - VIRTUAL 9-11: Will Israel Hack The US Banking System Computers and Falsely Blame It On Iran?


There are only three things Netanyahu can do now to get the war with Iran going before the Israeli elections next month.

The first is to simply go ahead and attack Iran, expecting that the United States will protect Israel from the counter-attack even if Israel struck the first blow.

The second option is a false-flag attack somewhere in the world to be blamed on Iran, but that is a very chancy option given the video of WIMEA lobbyist Clawson actually selling the idea that a false flag to start the war with Iran is a great idea.

The third and final option, and the one I am starting to think is the most likely, relates to the sudden flurry of media stories and statements by people like Joseph Lieberman about how Iranian hackers are attacking the US financial system computers. (Senator Lieberman has also been pressuring Obama to sign an executive order to take over the internet.) Of course, the common sense approach still applies. Why would Iran, which wishes to avoid a war, do something that provocative.

But we know that the US and Israel are behind the cyber-weapons like STUXNET, DUQU, FLAME, etc., taht these cyber-weapons were directed against Iran, and that one variant specifically targeted banks in Lebanon and Iran.

'Cognitive Infiltration' My Encounter with a 9/11 Dis-information Group on Facebook


The second thing which stood out was that the majority of posts were promoting Dr Judy Wood and Andrew Johnson.

They both propose a Directed Energy Weapon theory, as well as Andrew a 'No-Planes' theory.

After considerable research on both positions it was clear that neither had much support for their credibility, however for the casual researcher this may not be so easy.

This was a big red flag , especially as a few of the members were actively supporting one another with these dubious theories.

The U.K. Thinks a Strike on Iran Would be illegal, Denies U.S. Access to its Bases


The British attorney general has circulated legal advice to the prime minister’s office, Foreign Office and Defense Ministry warning that a preemptive military strike on Iran could violate international law, the Guardian’s Nick Hopkins reports. The existence of this secret document suggests that the U.K. government believes that Iran does not currently meet the legal threshold for a “clear and present danger” that would merit such an attack.

Though Iran’s illegal uranium enrichment is moving it closer to the capability to assemble a nuclear weapon, U.S. intelligence agencies do not believe that Tehran has affirmatively decided to build a bomb. The British legal memo would seem to underscore this view, as well as raise the question of whether Iran would have to cross that line for a military strike to meet the requirements of international law.

Iraq was not a "clear and present danger" either. War Crimes trials must be launched to deter any further acts of aggression.

Russia to Block Any UN Bid for Military Action Against Iran – Lavrov


Russia will scuttle any UN Security Council resolution that could be interpreted as allowing military action against Iran, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday, October 23, according to RIA Novosti.

“As the Libyan experience has shown, sadly, a military scenario is possible,” he said in an interview with the daily Rossiiskaya Gazeta when asked whether Israel or the United States could start military operations in Iran.

Russia will therefore exercise an extremely cautious approach at the UN Security Council.

“We won’t allow any more such disingenuous interpretations. We will see to it that no resolution is open to interpretation like the one on Libya,” he said.

US Blocks Russian Proposal to UN on Peaceful Bani Walid Solution


The US has blocked a proposed statement to UN Security Council, drafted by Russia, calling for the conflict in Libya's besieged city of Bani Walid to be resolved peacefully. This, as loyalist militias are mounting their offensive in the last stronghold of Muammar Gaddafi supporters. RT's New York correspondent Marina Portnaya reports.



The US actions are easy to explain when you factor in geopolitics. People's lives mean little. The broader goal is to wipe out any threat of the old regime and install a new system that is favourable to Western interests. Because the overthrow of Gaddaffi was not really a country wide uprising the militias now have to suppress whose that would defy them.

And now seven out of 10 economies in the region — including South Korea, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand

Cross-border trade settled in renminbi will triple to 6.5 trillion yuan ($1.03 trillion) within three years as relations with the world's second-largest economy grow, Royal Bank of Scotland Group PLC was quoted as saying by Bloomberg on Oct 9.

Settlements will grow 12 to 20 percent this year, reaching $1.03 trillion in two years, up from $330.8 billion in 2011, said Janet Ming, head of the China desk for RBS in Europe, Middle East and Africa.

This is the Wikipedia page for "9/11 conspiracy theories". It can be seen as an excellent example of Cass Sunstein's "cognitive infiltration".

While there is much to read, it may be well to at least consider section headings and what is not covered. Scroll down about half way to the heading "proponents" (of conspiracy theories) to see how brief the coverage is, with such as Griffin and Gage named sans their arguments. Then scroll down to see how vast coverage is under headings "Media reaction" and "Criticism" (citing such as David Arronovitch, Michael Shermer and Sunstein himself). Key omissions/cherry picking along with linking to "antisemitism", similarity to the Birther Movement, etc.

Why this is important is that countless thousands go to Wikipedia for basic information. It is fair to say that anyone only recently introduced to the possibility that the governmental account is wrong would read this Wiki page and discount the "Truth Movement" as delusional. It has the potential to do much to curb the growing Truth Movement.

CIA Chiefs Face Arrest Over Horrific Evidence of Bloody 'Video-Game' Sorties by Drone Pilots


A damning dossier assembled from exhaustive research into the strikes’ targets sets out in heartbreaking detail the deaths of teachers, students and Pakistani policemen. It also describes how bereaved relatives are forced to gather their loved ones’ dismembered body parts in the aftermath of strikes.

The dossier has been assembled by human rights lawyer Shahzad Akbar, who works for Pakistan’s Foundation for Fundamental Rights and the British human rights charity Reprieve.

Filed in two separate court cases, it is set to trigger a formal murder investigation by police into the roles of two US officials said to have ordered the strikes. They are Jonathan Banks, former head of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Islamabad station, and John A. Rizzo, the CIA’s former chief lawyer. Mr Akbar and his staff have already gathered further testimony which has yet to be filed.

‘We have statements from a further 82 victims’ families relating to more than 30 drone strikes,’ he said. ‘This is their only hope of justice.’

In the first case, which has already been heard by a court in Islamabad, judgment is expected imminently. If the judge grants Mr Akbar’s petition, an international arrest warrant will be issued via Interpol against the two Americans.

The second case is being heard in the city of Peshawar. In it, Mr Akbar and the families of drone victims who are civilians are seeking a ruling that further strikes in Pakistani airspace should be viewed as ‘acts of war’.

They argue that means the Pakistan Air Force should try to shoot down the drones and that the government should sever diplomatic relations with the US and launch murder inquiries against those responsible.

Romney's Ties with Voting Machines Makers Raise Alarms


Producers and investors of voting machines that have previously shown susceptibility to fraud in Ohio have been found to donate hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Romney campaign, raising concern about a dangerous bias in a major swing state.

Directors at Hart Intercivic, a national provider of voting systems, were found donating vast amounts of money to the Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Some of the company’s major investors are also big-time donors to the GOP campaign. Voters may feel uneasy because the voting machines produced by Hart Intercivic were found to be prone to corruption, according to an article written by Forbes contributor Rick Ungar.

A 2007 test by the Ohio secretary of state found that five electronic voting systems that were to be used in the 2008 election were vulnerable to fraud. These machines, produced by Hart Intercivic and employed throughout Hamilton County, were susceptible to malignant software and having their locks picked. A study testing the security of the machines found that hand-held devices were able to plug false vote counts into the machines.
http://rt.com/usa/news/voting-machines-romney-found-975/

We know the vote can be, and has been, rigged because of the 2004 Presidential Election results. Bush lost to Kerry but thanks to electronic voting machines many votes were flipped to allow George W a second term in office. If the count is reasonably close this time Romney may be the next President.

Government Wants to Jail Whistleblower for Revealing CIA’s ‘Prime Torturer’


The former CIA analyst who went public with the US government’s torturing of suspected terrorists has suffered a major setback this week in his attempt to avoid imprisonment amid a federal witch-hunt targeting whistleblowers.


John Kiriakou, the 48-year-old counter-terrorism expert once touted by the State Department for his role in capturing dozens of key al-Qaeda operatives, will now have to prove to prosecutors that he thought his admissions of the government’s top-secret water-boarding of prisoners posed no threat to national security. Kiriakou’s federal opponents believe the whistleblower exposed to journalists the identity of two other CIA agents, one of who led the controversial torture program that aimed to bring the accused as close to death as possible to coax confessions.

Kiriakou has been the subject of an intense federal investigation following a 2007 televised interview with ABC News where he confirmed that the US government’s interrogation of alleged war criminals involved water-boarding, a drowning-simulation technique that was banned under President Barack Obama two years later.

After he went public, Kiriakou was charged in January 2012 under the Espionage Act of 1917, among other crimes, for blowing the whistle on state secrets. Now amid pre-trial hearings being held outside of Washington, DC, US District Judge Leonie Brinkema has ordered that prosecutors will only have to prove that Kiriakou had “reason to believe”leaking the truth behind the torture method could have caused harm.

The Shadow CIA: A State Within A State Within A State


If the CIA is a state within a state then the shadow CIA is a state within a state within a state. It is a dangerous beast because it is operating domestically, against U.S. laws and against the consent of the American people.

The CIA's reckless disregard of U.S. traditions and laws made former President Harry Truman rethink his decision to create the CIA in the first place. On December 22, 1963, Truman wrote in The Washington Post:

"For some time I have been disturbed by the way the CIA has been diverted from its original assignment. It has become an operational and at times a policy-making arm of the Government. This has led to trouble and may have compounded our difficulties in several explosive areas. I never had any thought that when I set up the CIA that it would be injected into peacetime cloak and dagger operations."

The case could be made that the creation of the CIA and the National Security State in 1947 was necessary. But after sixty years of human rights abuses, systematic attacks on the constitution, false flag terror events, assassinations of political reformers, and other horrible crimes against humanity, should not the CIA be reformed?

Let's put the question of morality aside. What are the "national security" reasons that legitimize the existence of the CIA? Once you learn that Al-Qaeda is a CIA creation and proxy insurgent army and that 9/11 was a massive false flag operation, you come to the natural conclusion that the CIA does not perform a national security role.

The CIA plays a much dirtier role: engineering the American mind. It is not denied that the shadow CIA has major influence in the mainstream media, especially amongst top newspapers such as The Washington Post and The New York Times. Michael S. Rozeff speculates that the New York Times is entirely run by the CIA.

We can't know for certain if that is true because of the lack of historical documentation in the public domain, but there is a mountain of observable evidence that proves the CIA has many of its spooks working for the New York Times. Go here for just one example.

Until the American people demand that the U.S. government commit to radical transparency and the principles enshrined in the U.S. constitution, the shadow CIA and the mainstream media can twist history and manage public perceptions of reality as much as they like.
http://poorrichards-blog.blogspot.fr/2012/10/the-shadow-cia-state-within-state.html

An ultra transparent system would sink these secret organisations - at least in terms of their direct attachment to Government. The CIA has always been involved in media manipulation. The fact that we only found out during the Church Committee Hearings shows that big secrets can be kept pretty well.

Chemical Weapons in Libya? Bani Walid in 15th Day of Siege


Bani Walid in Libya - the ex-stronghold of late Colonel Gaddafi - is in flames again - a year after the dictator's death and the NATO led military operation. Libya's army is trying to clear out supporters of the old regime, and has laid siege to the town for the last two weeks. RT talks to Annie Machon, former MI5 agent.



Includes a very good short assessment of Post Gaddaffi Libya and how the country has essentially fallen apart and into poverty.

Russian S-400s Relocated Near Turkey. Hizballah Shifts Units, Rockets into Syria


Hizballah has begun depleting line of rockets and fighting units it has facing Israel from the Litani River of South Lebanon and moving them to the Syrian front line at Homs to strengthen Assad’s forces, DEBKAfile’s military sources reveal.

Hizballah’s forward line against Israel is still in place among the southernmost Shiite villages, but a part of their artillery back-up is gone and, for the first time, Hizballah’s ground-to-ground rockets are moving in an eastward direction into Syria.
----------------------------------------------------
Moscow has announced the deployment starting Wednesday, Oct. 17, of advanced S-400 interceptor missile batteries in Russia’s southern military region opposite Turkey.

Russian military spokesman Col. Igor Gorbul described those missiles as “targeting Turkey” against its involvement in NATO’s missile shield program. He emphasized that the S-400s are capable of destroying all types of airplanes, as well as ultra-stratospheric and ballistic missiles.

VIRTUAL 9-11: Will Israel Hack The US Banking System Computers and Falsely Blame It On Iran?


There are only three things Netanyahu can do now to get the war with Iran going before the Israeli elections next month.

The first is to simply go ahead and attack Iran, expecting that the United States will protect Israel from the counter-attack even if Israel struck the first blow.

The second option is a false-flag attack somewhere in the world to be blamed on Iran, but that is a very chancy option given the video of WIMEA lobbyist Clawson actually selling the idea that a false flag to start the war with Iran is a great idea.

The third and final option, and the one I am starting to think is the most likely, relates to the sudden flurry of media stories and statements by people like Joseph Lieberman about how Iranian hackers are attacking the US financial system computers. (Senator Lieberman has also been pressuring Obama to sign an executive order to take over the internet.) Of course, the common sense approach still applies. Why would Iran, which wishes to avoid a war, do something that provocative.

But we know that the US and Israel are behind the cyber-weapons like STUXNET, DUQU, FLAME, etc., taht these cyber-weapons were directed against Iran, and that one variant specifically targeted banks in Lebanon and Iran.

Israel, Syria, Iraq: Who Benefits from the Beirut Blast?


At least eight are dead and 118 wounded after a car bomb rocked the Lebanese capital of Beirut. The attack in the majority Christian neighborhood killed a top-ranking security official.



I find it very hard to believe the Syrians had anything to do with this attack - as is being reported in the mainstream. This assassination can only work against the Syrian Government if the local population believes that is the case rather than suspecting the other likely party, which is Israel.

'EU Gags Iran News to Silence Uncomfortable Voice'


The European Commission has denied it ordered a ban on Iranian state channels, saying that two providers acted independently. Previously Tehran slammed the EU for completely jamming its 19 TV and radio stations which broadcast across Europe. The ban coincides with a further tightening of sanctions against the country, mostly targeting its financial and trade sectors. Independent filmmaker and media analyst Danny Schechter thinks the EU simply doesn't want to hear a contrary point of view.

Counting the Bodies in the Pakistani Drone Campaign


The US government must release its estimates of how many people are being killed in CIA drone strikes, to end an over-reliance on often scanty media reports, a new study on drone casualties says.

The absence of 'hard facts and information that should be provided by the US government means that the public debate is dependent on estimates of casualties provided by organisations including the Bureau, academics at Columbia University Law School's Human Rights Clinic said. This risks masking the 'true impact or humanitarian costs' of the campaign, they added.

The study also found that the two US-based monitoring organisations, the Long War Journal and the New America Foundation have been under-recording credible reports of drone civilian casualties in Pakistan by a huge margin.

New Paper Confirms the Climate was Warmer 1000 Years Ago


The reconstruction of past climate has improved significantly in the past few years due to the availability of more proxies and better statistical analysis. The authors acknowledge this and point out the differences that are emerging from the reconstructions conducted about a decade ago. They mention two such reconstructions performed by Michael Mann that they say, perhaps typically for the period, show little variability. They add they display, “little evidence for previous temperature anomalies comparable to those of the 20th century.” The authors conclude that previous climate reconstructions “seriously underestimate” variability and trends in the climate record of the past two millennia.


This new analysis shows that the warming we have seen in the late-20th century is not unprecedented, as can be seen in figure 5 (from the paper). Seen in the reconstruction is a well-defined peak of temperature between 950–1050 AD. They also find that the first millennium is warmer than the second.

Qatar is to spend $254m (£157m) rebuilding Gaza, the biggest injection of reconstruction aid for the Palestinian enclave since it was devastated in an Israeli military offensive nearly four years ago.

The Qatari ambassador Mohammed al-Amadi said cooperation had been arranged with Israel and Egypt to admit building materials and heavy machinery to Gaza, which is under a partial blockade, and work would begin within three months.

The first project will be construction of a highway that will run the length of the Mediterranean coastal strip.

The projects are of sufficient scale to transform Gaza and the lives of its 1.6 million people, 28% of whom are unemployed.

Iran Says New EU Sanctions 'Inhumane'


Iran said on Tuesday the latest round of EU economic sanctions imposed over the country's disputed nuclear programme are "inhumane" as they target its general population.

"Unilateral European and US sanctions against Iran are irrational, illegal and inhumane, and are against the Iranian nation," foreign ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said.

Speaking on state television, Mehmanparast accused the West of using the nuclear issue as a pretext to apply pressure on Tehran for "insisting on its own independence".

"These sanctions are adopted under the pretext of Iran's peaceful nuclear activities ... but even if our nuclear issue is resolved, these countries will certainly use other excuses to put pressure on us."

The European Union on Monday toughened sanctions against Iran, targeting its dealings with Iran's banks, shipping and gas imports and banning trade in metals.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/iran/9612291/Iran-says-new-EU-sanctions-inhumane.html
 
Iran's nuclear program is fully monitored by the IAEA and all their materials have been accounted for. The Iranians are not in violation of any International Law. At present the sanctions from both the EU and USA appear to be completely unjustified collective punishment - I would wager representing a violation of International Law.

Official '911 Mastermind' Story Completely Unravels: Abu Zubaydah Poses a Real Threat to 911 'Al Qaeda' Narrative


Because we now know that Zubayda was never an al Qaeda operative, or even an al Qaeda associate, we are forced into the stunning realization that all of this was false. The questions that should arise from that realization include: How much of what we know about al Qaeda, and how much of the War on Terror, was built on the torture testimony of a man who clearly could not have known anything about al Qaeda at all?

Originally, we were told that it was Zubaydha who first identified KSM as the Bin Laden associate called “Mukhtar.” This was according to Ali Soufan, the FBI official who first interrogated him at a secret CIA site in Thailand. Soufan also claimed that Zubaydah said KSM was the “mastermind” behind the 9/11 attacks. In his 2007 book, CIA director Tenet went further, claiming that “interrogating Abu Zubaydah led to Ramsi bin al Shibh.”[38]

But as we know now, the CIA reportedly told Abu Zubaydah during his interrogation that they discovered he was not an al-Qaeda fighter, partner, or even a member.[39] Still, KSM and Bin Alshibh were caught and tortured too.

The 9/11 Commission Report was largely based on third-hand accounts of what these tortured detainees said, with “two of the three parties in the communication being government employees.”[40] The Commission itself wrote that “Chapters 5 and 7 rely heavily on information obtained from captured al Qaeda members.”[41] The truth is, however, that more than half of the 9/11 Commission Report is based on completely unreliable torture testimony to which the Commission had absolutely no access – not even through interviews with the interrogators. KSM’s torture is referred to 221 times in the report, and that of Bin Alshibh is referred to 73 times. The Commission used one or more of these “interrogations” as its source a total of 441 times in its report footnotes.

The U.S. government admits that Zubaydah was water-boarded 83 times and KSM was water-boarded 183 times. Given that most people cannot stand a few seconds of this torture, it is apparent that these sessions were not meant to gain information and were, perhaps, meant to eliminate information through the destruction of the victim’s mind. Through the brief statements his defense team has been allowed to make, Zubaydah has also described how he was kept for long periods in a cage he called “a tiny coffin.”[42]

The torture of Zubaydah was specifically used to support claims about Bin Laden’s plans and actions, al Qaeda’s policies, the recruitment of the hijackers and other al Qaeda operatives, and details about the leaders who planned 9/11.[43] According to author Jane Meyer, CIA agent John Kiriakou said “Zubaydah openly admitted his role in the September 11 attacks and claimed to regret having killed so many Americans.”[44] Apparently, the 9/11 Commission didn’t think this latter claim to be credible although it promoted other dubious information supposedly generated by the torture of these suspects.

The official '911 mastermind' story has almost completely unravelled here because this article proves we cannot take the word of the authorities on what they have said.

Benghazi Attack. Libya’s Green Resistance Did It… And NATO Powers Are Covering Up


The NATO powers and the bureaucrats they installed in Libya want you to think that all 5.6 million Libyans are happy that NATO and its proxy terrorists destroyed Libya, a country which under Gaddafi had the highest standard of living in Africa.

They want you to think that NATO brought “freedom and democracy” to Libya, not chaos and death.

They want you to think that there is no Green Resistance to the NATO imperialists or NATO’s Islamist allies in Benghazi.

In reality, the Resistance has been increasingly active since shortly after the murder of Muammar Gaddafi in October 2011, as will be shown below. They strike any NATO target they can, and they execute key Libyans who betrayed Gaddafi and sided with NATO. The Benghazi incident was merely their latest blow against what they see as NATO’s illegal occupation of their country.
http://www.globalresearch.ca/libyas-green-resistance-did-it-and-nato-powers-are-covering-up

There are resistance efforts underway in Libya. This explanation for the attack on the Embassy is plausible, more so than what we have been told in the mainstream press thus far.

A Major “Derivatives Crisis” Is Coming, The Whole World Would Be Thrown Into A State of Chaos


Most Americans do not understand what “derivatives” are, so they kind of tune out when people start talking about them. But they are very important to understand. Essentially, derivatives are “side bets”.  When you buy a derivative, you are not investing in anything.  You are just gambling that something will or will not happen.
----------------------------------------------------
Five very large U.S. banks (including Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and Bank of America) have combined exposure to derivatives in excess of 250 trillion dollars. Keep in mind that U.S. GDP for 2011 was only about 15 trillion dollars. So we are talking about an amount of money that is almost inconceivable. That is why I cannot talk about derivatives enough. In fact, I apologize to my readers for not writing about them more. If you want to understand the coming financial collapse, one of the keys is to understand derivatives. Our entire financial system has been transformed into a giant casino, and at some point all of this gambling is going to cause a horrible crash.

Iraq Records Huge Rise in Birth Defects: New Study Links Increase with Military Action by Western Forces


It played unwilling host to one of the bloodiest battles of the Iraq war. Fallujah's homes and businesses were left shattered; hundreds of Iraqi civilians were killed. Its residents changed the name of their "City of Mosques" to "the polluted city" after the United States launched two massive military campaigns eight years ago. Now, one month before the World Health Organisation reveals its view on the legacy of the two battles for the town, a new study reports a "staggering rise" in birth defects among Iraqi children conceived in the aftermath of the war.

High rates of miscarriage, toxic levels of lead and mercury contamination and spiralling numbers of birth defects ranging from congenital heart defects to brain dysfunctions and malformed limbs have been recorded. Even more disturbingly, they appear to be occurring at an increasing rate in children born in Fallujah, about 40 miles west of Baghdad.

There is "compelling evidence" to link the increased numbers of defects and miscarriages to military assaults, says Mozhgan Savabieasfahani, one of the lead authors of the report and an environmental toxicologist at the University of Michigan's School of Public Health. Similar defects have been found among children born in Basra after British troops invaded, according to the new research.

US marines first bombarded Fallujah in April 2004 after four employees from the American security company Blackwater were killed, their bodies burned and dragged through the street, with two of the corpses left hanging from a bridge. Seven months later, the marines stormed the city for a second time, using some of the heaviest US air strikes deployed in Iraq. American forces later admitted that they had used white phosphorus shells, although they never admitted to using depleted uranium, which has been linked to high rates of cancer and birth defects.

The new findings, published in the Environmental Contamination and Toxicology bulletin, will bolster claims that US and Nato munitions used in the conflict led to a widespread health crisis in Iraq.

Sweden tells Greece to Quit Eurozone


Sweden's Finance Minister has told Greece that it would be best advised to quit the Eurozone and revert to the drachma if its economy is to stand any chance of recovery.

In remarks that are certain to cause consternation in Brussels and Berlin as well as Athens, Finance Minister Anders Borg said that abandoning the euro would probably allow Greece to "find its competitiveness once again" and "get itself back on its feet".

The minister's remarks were quoted by the Swedish newspaper, The Local. He was speaking on the sidelines of a summit of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in Tokyo on Friday. Borg acknowledged that quitting the eurozone would be a difficult and complex road to tread but argued that, "it is difficult to see another that could work."

The people of Greece are in a debt trap such that the country must default. Presently they are selling national assets in a last ditch attempt to service unrepayable loans. This must stop.

And note: if the Greeks introduce a gold or silver backed drachma (as suggested on the Keiser Report program), then they would be protected against currency hyperinflation.

Sparking Strife? 'NATO, Turkey Seek Pretense for Attack on Syria'


Moscow has rejected Turkish claims that there was illegal Russian-made military hardware on board the Syrian passenger jet forced to land in Ankara on Wednesday. Russia's Foreign Minister insists the confiscated cargo did not violate any international regulations. Meanwhile Turkey is continuing its military build up along its border with Syrian just as the US deploys some of its troops in Jordan. Sibel Edmonds founder and president of the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition believes preparations for an intervention in Syria have been going on for over a year now.



The bottom line in all this fighting is that the West has been covertly arming Turkish based 'rebels' for over 16 months. This aircraft incident is a joke. Even if they found weapons it'd be completely understandable considering the circumstances.

Noble Peace Prize for Those who Declared War on Iran


Was the European Union really worthy of receiving the Nobel Peace Prize?

I really don't know if this union has really contributed to fraternity and integrity between its 27 members throughout the past decades, but what I have personally witnessed in the past year is that this union has aggressively declared an all-out, bloodless war on Iran, affecting millions of innocent civilians in my country who can't understand for what crime they are being targeted and punished in such a belligerent and unfair manner.

The European Union began to impose an inclusive oil embargo against Iran since July 1 as a result of direct pressure and lobbying by the United States and in an effort aimed at paralyzing Iran's nuclear program which they claim is not aimed at civilian purposes, and finally breaking the back of Iran's economy and pressuring it into making political concessions.

As a result of these sanctions, the value of Iran's currency, rial, has dropped to its lowest level against dollar in three decades, the country has been hit by a staggering and overwhelming hyperinflation which according to Prof. Steve H. Hanke has been increasing the price of goods and commodities by 70% every month since the sanctions began to take effect and the country's export of oil has decreased 600,000 to 800,000 barrels each day which means a 50% reduction in sales. Moreover, several international insurance companies, airliners and shipping lines have ceased their cooperation with Iran as a result of the economic crisis which has encompassed the country.

As a result of the oil embargo and other financial restrictions imposed on my country by the EU, the Iranian families are unable to fund their students abroad and consequently, a large group of Iranian students studying in foreign universities are returning en masse. Sensitive medicine and pharmaceutical products which were previously imported from the foreign countries cannot find their way to Iran's markets anymore and thousands of patients badly in need of medicines for such diseases as thalassemia, hepatitis, diabetes, different types of cancer, heart diseases and psychiatric disorders are facing serious problems with finding their medicines.

Are the leaders of the European Union recognizing that their sanctions are taking a heavy toll on the innocent, ordinary Iranian citizens and shattering the ambitions and aspirations of thousands of youths who cannot realize their dreams due to the financial problems which have tumbled on their lives?
Are the leaders of the European Union who now carry the grandiose accolade of the world's most important prize for promoting peace recognizing that the purchasing power of the middle-class and working families has experienced an unimaginable free-fall in the recent months and that their lives is on the verge of blowing apart?

Waging wars does not take place simply by means of bombarding cities or dropping nuclear bombs on other nations. What the European Union has been doing with Iran is the unmistakable representation of an all-out war in which the ordinary citizens are the silent victims.

'US Needs Bahrain Against Iran, Won't Tolerate Democracy'


While rallies in Syria and Egypt draw much of the world's attention - others are slipping into the background. Breaking news from Bahrain's capital - where peaceful protests have turned into ferocious clashes after riot police used tear gas to disperse people in the city center. Security forces attacked demonstrators after they crowded into a main street, in their ongoing calls for greater freedoms and rights for the Shi'ite minority population from the Sunni rulers. Months of demonstrations have seen heavy crackdowns by regime forces. RT talks to geopolitical analyst Patrick Henningsen.



A great summary of the situation in Bahrain where we can see that geopolitics is the MAIN concern NOT human rights. One must consider that ALL the other interventions in Middle Eastern countries come down to this equation, and really have nothing to do with promoting democracy.

ABC: No Protest Outside Libya Consulate Before Attack




There were also warnings about an attack against the embassy before it happened and the security was not beefed up. Ambassador Stevens was taken to the hospital by local Libyan people - according to some reports in the alternative press. Notice that the mainsteam story is only just picking up on items reported in the alternative media that said the attack was planned and had nothing to do with the recent anti-Islam video.

And by supporting 'extremist' gangs there was bound to be a post war backlash to any US presence in the country.  NATO took sides in a civil war that has destroyed the stability and security previously enjoyed (problematically) in the Gaddafi regime controlled Libya.

NATO Signals Readiness to Attack Syria


“Obviously Turkey can rely on NATO solidarity,” said Rasmussen. “We have all necessary plans in place to protect and defend Turkey if necessary.”

Despite evidence that the mortar used in the attack on Turkey was of NATO manufacture and Syria has formally apologized for the attack it did not commit, Turkey has continued to pummel its northern neighbor with artillery barrages over the last week.

“Ankara may want an escalation in the stand-off with Syria, but there will be no NATO war without US backing,” John Glaser writes today. “Although the US has been meddling in Syria’s conflict – by sending aid to the rebel fighters and fueling the violence – many in the US still don’t see an outbreak of war in Syria as workable.”

In addition to CIA and MI6 backing, British and French Special Forces have been actively training members of the FSA from locations inside Turkey.

Turkish President Abdullah Gul calls for “international action” against Syria.In August, Moscow’s envoy to NATO Dmitry Rogozin warned that NATO is working toward intervention in Syria.

“NATO is planning a military campaign against Syria to help overthrow the regime of President Bashar al-Assad with a long-reaching goal of preparing a beachhead for an attack on Iran,” he said.

The West is not simply 'helping' achieve a peaceful outcome. Rebel training camps existed in Turkey from the outset, the West has pushed arms and people into the conflict escalating the violence, and the mainstream media has been pushing propaganda against the Assad Government. These are not the actions of neutral outside groups. There is a clear agenda to destabilise Syria. This would allow Israel to increase their 'security buffer' out from the Golan Heights, stop Syrian support for Hezbollah in southern Lebanon, encourage a war with Syria's ally Iran, and stop the Syria-Iraq-Iran oil pipeline project that has been planned.

'Turkey's Interception of Syria-Bound Plane an Act of War OKed by US'


Don Debar, an anti-war activist and journalist says the incident with Syrian plane in Turkey is a wake-up call signaling that NATO members are ready for open military confrontation.



If the Russians are supplying Syria this is not really a shocking situation since we have to remember that the West is fully supporting the FSA rebels who escalated the protest situation into the present state of chaos. The violence must end in Syria and because rebel groups consist of number of extremists the Government should be backed. Democratic reforms were already underway in Syria until the conflict began. It's not an ideal outcome but the other option is continued warring that produces many casualties and refugees.

Keiser Report (E351): Bust-a-Bankster


In this episode, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss whether it's time to start loving bankers as former Mayor Ken Livingstone suggests and they also wonder if the flying naked short selling witch caught by religious police in Saudi Arabia is, in fact, Blythe Masters covering an oil trade. In the second half of the show, Max Keiser talks to Aston Walker - aka the Birmingham Looter - about whether he was ever offered a deferred prosecution agreement for his crime of looting during the 2011 riots and ask whether he would have been granted immunity had he offered the loot as an infinitely rehypothecated collateralized looted H&M clothes bonds.



Another excellent episode about criminal banking activity.

CIA Undercover Shocks Danish Muslims


Revelations that a Danish Muslim convert was in reality an undercover agent posing as extremist in an attempt to trap young Muslims are sending shockwaves across the sizable minority in Denmark.

“The police and security services want us to trust them but they are sending agitators into our community to lead people astray,” Qadir Baksh, chairman of the Luton Islamic Center in Bury Park Road, told Luton Today newspaper on Wednesday, October 10.

A Muslim convert, Morten Storm, has unveiled that he was an undercover agent for the Danish intelligence service (PET) and the CIA.

NY Times Headline Reverses Chronology, Story Leaves Out Important Information


Today’s New York Times features a headline that reverses the sequence of events described in the story it is allegedly representing. It also omits significant information.

The headline reads: “Israel Launches Airstrikes After Attacks From Gaza” in a story bylined by Isabel Kershner. In other words, in its usual fashion, the New York Times headline tells readers that Israeli violence is defensive and came after Palestinians initiated the violence.

In reality, it was the opposite, as the lead paragraph states: “Palestinian militants from Gaza fired a barrage of rockets and mortar shells into Israeli territory on Monday, causing no casualties but some property damage, AFTER an Israeli airstrike wounded at least 10 Palestinians in southern Gaza on Sunday [emphasis added].”
http://alethonews.wordpress.com/2012/10/08/ny-times-headline-reverses-chronology-story-leaves-out-important-information/

This is a clear example of the biggest problem the public faces - a mainstream media that MISLEADS and misinforms its audience so that they get the wrong impression about very important events. The cover-up of information hides geopolitical motives and obfuscates clear instances of Western caused War Crimes.

Thankfully the online media is slowly telling the people what is happening. Becoming informed is the first step in derailing the military-corporate criminals who continue to hold sway over our key institutions.

News Not Revealing Real Reasons For Economic Collapse - Paul Craig Roberts




The world economy explained simply by Roberts. Definitely worth watching. The corporations are helping their bottom line at the expense of middle class and poor people for the benefit of very few profit hungry elites. And rather than protecting the interests of their populations Governments around the world are providing welfare to the big insolvent corporations (derivatives gaming banks) with no benefit to the taxpayers who have to foot the endless bailouts.
