Intelligence Analyst Admits "Stable Honest Government in Kabul" Is Not The War's Purpose; Suggests Mobile Mullahs And More...

The good sir, Mitchell LaFortune, former Army sergeant and intelligence analyst makes some thoughtful weekend admissions about the Afghanistan War's true purpose in an Op-ed in The New York Times. Here are some tender morsels of war strategy written in the pleasant bucolic environment of Saco, Maine and morbidly entitled Learning From Wikileaks.

In this first passage I do believe it sounds as if the good sergeant is saying that keeping in place a "quick-strike military structure" (permanently?) is the real purpose of the war.

...Many people also operate from a faulty assumption about the war’s purpose. No matter what we’ve told the Afghans, the true goal of the American-led effort should not be to create a stable, honest government in Kabul. While that would be a great benefit, what’s vital is that we keep in place the robust intelligence and quick-strike military structure we have developed in the country and across the Pakistan border...

And then here, am I to presume he means adding afghanistan journalists to the U.S. special op hit list?

...To undermine support for United States troops, the Taliban insistently remind the people that America has committed to a withdrawal beginning next summer, they jump on any announcement of our Western allies pulling out troops and they publicize polls that show declining domestic American support for the war. To counter the spin, we need to add the Taliban’s top propagandists to the high-value-target list and direct military operations at the insurgents’ media nerve centers. A major reason that people in rural areas are so reluctant to help us is that Taliban propaganda and intimidation have created an atmosphere of fear...

And then I do admire the lovely bit of alliteration in his last gem of an idea, the mobile mullah.

...While creating a network of more enlightened religious figures to compete with the hard-liners will take time, we could jump-start progress by creating a group of “mobile mullahs” — well-protected clerics who can travel through rural areas and settle land disputes and other issues. These men should come from the general areas in which they will be performing their duties and be approved by community leaders...

I feel so much safer that the USA is guided by bright minds like Mr. LaFortune, who will undoubtebly guide us through the dirty muck of the next....centuries, of armed conflict in Central Asia. Hail, O Eternal War...

The New York Times Dismisses Assange Claim...By Confirming It.

For the latest glorious example of "doublethink" check out how Eric Schmitt of the New York Times dismisses Assange's claim to have offered U.S. government officials to go through leaked documents to ensure that no innocent people were identified. He does this in a rather ingenious way, by confirming that Assange had done exactly that.

From Fox News

Also on Saturday, a New York Times reporter who has been the newspaper's liaison with Assange, dismissed Assange's claim that WikiLeaks had offered to let U.S. government officials go through leaked documents to ensure that no innocent people were identified. Assange told the Australian Broadcasting Corp. in an interview that aired Thursday that the New York Times had acted as an intermediary and that the White House hadn't responded to the offer...

And now the "doublethink" part:

Times reporter Eric Schmitt told the AP that on the night of July 23, at White House spokesman's Robert Gibbs' request, he relayed to Assange a White House request that WikiLeaks not publish information that could lead to people being physically harmed.

The next evening, Schmitt said, Assange replied in an e-mail that WikiLeaks was withholding 15,000 documents for review. Schmitt said Assange wrote that WikiLeaks would consider recommendations made by ISAF — apparently meaning the U.S.-led United Nations International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan — "on the identification of innocents for this material if it is willing to provide reviewers."

Schmitt said he forwarded the e-mail to White House officials and Times editors.

"I certainly didn't consider this a serious and realistic offer to the White House to vet any of the documents before they were to be posted, and I think it's ridiculous that Assange is portraying it that way now," Schmitt wrote to the AP.

So Eric Schmitt doesn't think it was a serious and realistic offer. That's very nice of him. That's not the same as suggesting the offer didn't happen. But what else do you expect from a New York Times reporter, or a Fox News article.

Scientists Find Evidence That Oil And Dispersant Mix Is Making Its Way Into The Foodchain

From The Huffington Post

Scientists have found signs of an oil-and-dispersant mix under the shells of tiny blue crab larvae in the Gulf of Mexico, the first clear indication that the unprecedented use of dispersants in the BP oil spill has broken up the oil into toxic droplets so tiny that they can easily enter the foodchain.

Marine biologists started finding orange blobs under the translucent shells of crab larvae in May, and have continued to find them "in almost all" of the larvae they collect, all the way from Grand Isle, Louisiana, to Pensacola, Fla. -- more than 300 miles of coastline -- said Harriet Perry, a biologist with the University of Southern Mississippi's Gulf Coast Research Laboratory...

This caused a minor stir among Weigel’s Twitter followers, with one responding:

Zabiullah Mujahid Helps Gates Slam Wikileaks

Zabiullah Mujahid, alleged Taliban spokesperson, is being reported as saying about the Wikileaks documents, "We will investigate through our own secret service whether the people mentioned are really spies working for the U.S. If they are U.S. spies, then we know how to punish them."

It sounds as if this Zabiullah Mujahid from his Wikipedia profile might be another made-up spokesperson for the bad guys out there who comes in at the right times to help with Pentagon propaganda.

If the Taliban don't hunt down an informer, maybe the CIA or some special op will do it for them just to prove their point? Wouldn't even surprise me from these criminals.

Is Obama A Marxist?

An extensive and thoughtful article by Kurt Nimmo tries to delineate Obama from the Marxist pigeonhole given to him by some, for lack of a better name, right-wingers. Look at the issues which Obama stands for, not his words but his actions, and you will see his actions support the Federal Reserve, Military Industrial Complex and Wall Street powers. Is that Marxism? If it is then I guess the potential republican presidential candidates for 2012, Sarah Palin, Jeb Bush or Petreaus are also Marxists? I doubt Obama will last more then his 4 years and after that there will most likely be a puppet this time from the right wing of the establishment, with slightly differently styled propaganda, but supporting the very same corporate interests. The real issue is not Marxism, as Kurt Nimmo states, but the corruption of our government by a corporate, banker and military-industrial power elite. Otherwise we are chasing shadows.

For a related article from Ron Paul on the issue check out Obama's Policies Aren't Socialist, They're Worse.

There are some who might stick to using the label Socialism, such as Jim Rogers, but they characterize it as "Socialism for the rich" as you can watch here. In any case, one can argue about which labels one wishes to use. In the end one must however have a broad vision of where the problems are truly coming from and try to use labels which direct us to the heart of the problem, rather then directing us back into antiquated cold war rhetoric which may serve only to further confuse.

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is to make a keynote address this evening before the Annual Bohemian Club secret gathering – a lifetime achievement for a man who has long been groomed for power by the globalist elite...

And for the bit about the New York Times:

The New York Times is the only mainstream news source to have covered the Grove this year, with the usual sardonic whitewash piece that ridicules anyone who has reservations or questions regarding the weird rituals that the robed attendees engage in:

“…the requisite summer-camp assembly of robed men, a 40-foot concrete owl, and a body burned in effigy (conspiracy theorists note: it is not a real body)… no, conspiracy theorists, the owl does not represent a demonic idol or any potato-chip concern.”

Oh I see, it’s not a real body, that’s perfectly normal then – after all, who doesn’t sneak out into the woods in a black robe and burn human effigies with their friends. every once in a while?

The Year America Dissolved

From Counterpunch.

By Paul Craig Roberts

It was 2017. Clans were governing America.

The first clans organized around local police forces. The conservatives’ war on crime during the late 20th century and the Bush/Obama war on terror during the first decade of the 21st century had resulted in the police becoming militarized and unaccountable.

As society broke down, the police became warlords. The state police broke apart, and
the officers were subsumed into the local forces of their communities. The newly formed tribes expanded to encompass the relatives and friends of the police.

The dollar had collapsed as world reserve currency in 2012 when the worsening economic depression made it clear to Washington’s creditors that the federal budget deficit was too large to be financed except by the printing of money.

With the dollar’s demise, import prices skyrocketed. As Americans were unable to afford foreign-made goods, the transnational corporations that were producing offshore for US markets were bankrupted, further eroding the government’s revenue base.

The government was forced to print money in order to pay its bills, causing domestic prices to rise rapidly. Faced with hyperinflation, Washington took recourse in terminating Social Security and Medicare and followed up by confiscating the remnants of private pensions. This provided a one-year respite, but with no more resources to confiscate, money creation and hyperinflation resumed.

Organized food deliveries broke down when the government fought hyperinflation with fixed prices and the mandate that all purchases and sales had to be in US paper currency. Unwilling to trade appreciating goods for depreciating paper, goods disappeared from stores...

A significant portion of you are not getting more optimistic because they tell you to. Instead of just reading the headline on Bloomberg that durable goods orders skyrocketed in June, you actually read the details that said durable goods orders plunged. It is getting difficult for the ruling elite to keep the masses sedated and dumbed down. These damn bloggers, with their facts and critical thinking, are throwing a wrench into the gears. Obama and his crack team are working round the clock to lock down the internet, but it will take time. Not that they are totally dissatisfied. They’ve been able to renovate their penthouses and purchase new mansions in the Hamptons with the billions in bonuses you supplied through TARP. The $1.2 trillion supplied by your children and grandchildren to buy up toxic mortgages off their balances sheets was a godsend. They will never call you suckers, to your face...

In Which Direction Will Wikileaks Be Spun?

I was delighted to see the release of the recent Wikileaks documents. I assumed they would have a positive effect since they reveal some information about ISI involvement with the Taliban among other things. They also seemed to have a negative effect on the warmongers who were bitterly complaining over the leaks. I still assume this all to be a good thing. As for Assange himself, I believe he should be judged by his efforts. His works should speak of his character and I am going to assume he means well despite some of the criticism WIkileaks has been getting.

On the other hand, these new WIkileaks documents may be spun to only implicate Pakistan, without revealing how some believe our government actually supports the Pakistani ISI in their actions to support the Taliban, as Christoph Horstel explains below:

Afghanistan questions U.S. silence over Pakistan's role

If during Vietnam it had come out that the U.S. was giving China billions to aid the Vietcong in their fight against U.S. Troops, it would have been sensational information. Today a very similar thing is going on in Afghanistan with Pakistan. It seems to me absurd that there isn't more of a shake up over the public realization that we are basically funding our own enemies.

From Reuters.

...At a news conference later on Tuesday, council head Rangeen Dadfar Spanta was more specific, questioning the billions of dollars in cash aid and military assistance Washington has given to Pakistan over the years.

Ahmadinejad: US Expansion Of War In Middle East Imminent

From Prison Planet

“They plan to attack at least two countries in the region within the next three months,” he added.
Though Ahmadinejad did not elaborate on which two countries were in US crosshairs, it must be assumed he is referring to Syria and Lebanon – both Iranian allies and both previous targets of US backed Israeli aggression in recent years.
He added that the US has two main objectives:
“First of all, they want to hamper Iran’s progress and development since they are opposed to our growth, and secondly they want to save the Zionist regime because it has reached a dead-end and the Zionists believe they can be saved through a military confrontation,”.

BIGGEST LEAK IN INTEL HISTORY: Tens of thousands of alleged Afghan war documents go online; point to Pakistan-Taliban collusion; White House Condems

From Wikileaks

25th July 2010 5:00 PM EST WikiLeaks has released a document set called the Afghan War Diary (AWD), an extraordinary compendium of over 91,000 reports covering the war in Afghanistan from 2004 to 2010...

From CNN

A whistle-blower website has published what it says are more than 90,000 United States military and diplomatic reports about Afghanistan filed between 2004 and January of this year.
The first-hand accounts are the military's own raw data on the war, including numbers killed, casualties, threat reports and the like, according to Julian Assange, the founder of, which published the material Sunday.
"It is the total history of the Afghan war from 2004 to 2010, with some important exceptions -- U.S. Special Forces, CIA activity and most of the activity of other non-U.S. groups," Assange said...

The New York Times reported Sunday that military field documents included in the release suggest that Pakistan, an ally of the United States in the war against terror, has been running something of a "double game," allowing "representatives of its spy service to meet directly with the Taliban in secret strategy sessions to organize networks of militant groups that fight against American soldiers in Afghanistan, and even hatch plots to assassinate Afghan leaders."...

From LA TImes

The White House late Sunday condemned the leaking of what appear to be about 90,000 U.S. military records, as a handful of international media organizations that received access to the documents began to disclose their account of the war in Afghanistan....

From New York TImes

Americans fighting the war in Afghanistan have long harbored strong suspicions that Pakistan’s military spy service has guided the Afghan insurgency with a hidden hand, even as Pakistan receives more than $1 billion a year from Washington for its help combating the militants, according to a trove of secret military field reports made public Sunday.

The documents, made available by an organization called WikiLeaks, suggest that Pakistan, an ostensible ally of the United States, allows representatives of its spy service to meet directly with the Taliban in secret strategy sessions to organize networks of militant groups that fight against American soldiers in Afghanistan, and even hatch plots to assassinate Afghan leaders...

Remarkable Statements From Ex-CIA Chief Hayden: Military Strike on Iran Likely; "What Guards You Against American Citizens?"

From Newsmax

A former CIA director says military action against Iran now seems more likely because no matter what the U.S. does diplomatically, Tehran keeps pushing ahead with its suspected nuclear program.

Michael Hayden, a CIA chief under President George W. Bush, said that during his tenure "a strike was way down the list of options." But he tells CNN's State of the Union that such action now "seems inexorable."

"In my personal thinking," Hayden said, "I have begun to consider that that may not be the worst of all possible outcomes."

And on homegrown terror:

"In a democracy it’s incredibly difficult,” he said. “Look, we’ve all made our compromises with al-Qaeda and the al-Qaeda kinds of attacks.

"But how do you build a security structure that guards you against American citizens who are beginning to change in their thinking up to a point where they become a threat to the security of other Americans? That’s a devil of a problem."

Netanyahu admits on video he deceived US to destroy Oslo accord

From The National

Obama is Preparing to Bomb Iran

This article has many insights and revelations, some of which I have quoted below. My personal favorite is the Brezinski quote where he basically admits a false flag event could be organized to kick of war with Iran.


The moment in the recent past when the US came closest to attacking Iran was August-September 2007, at about the time of the major Israeli bombing raid on Syria.1 This was the phase during which the Cheney faction in effect hijacked a fully loaded B-52 bomber equipped with six nuclear-armed cruise missiles, and attempted to take it to the Middle East outside of the command and control of the Pentagon, presumably to be used in a colossal provocation designed by the private rogue network for which Cheney was the visible face. A few days before the B-52 escaped control of legally constituted US authorities, a group of antiwar activists issued The Kennebunkport Warning of August 24-25, 2007, which had been drafted by the present writer.2 It was very significant that US institutional forces acted at that time to prevent the rogue B-52 from proceeding on its way towards the Middle East. The refusal to let the rogue B-52 take off reflected a growing consensus in the US military-intelligence community and the ruling elite in general that the Bush-Cheney-neocon policy of direct military aggression towards all comers had become counterproductive and very dangerous, running the risk of a terminal case of imperial overstretch....

A prominent spokesman for the growing disaffection with the neocons was Zbigniew Brzezinski...Brzezinski formulated his critique of the neocon methods of aggression and imperialistic geopolitics in his testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in February 2007, going so far as to point out the likely scenario of a false flag event or Gulf of Tonkin incident designed to embroil the United States in direct military hostilities with Iran. The heart of Brzezinski’s analysis was this: ‘If the United States continues to be bogged down in a protracted bloody involvement in Iraq, the final destination on this downhill track is likely to be a head-on conflict with Iran and with much of the world of Islam at large. A plausible scenario for a military collision with Iran involves Iraqi failure to meet the benchmarks; followed by accusations of Iranian responsibility for the failure; then by some provocation in Iraq or a terrorist act in the U.S. blamed on Iran; culminating in a “defensive” U.S. military action against Iran that plunges a lonely America into a spreading and deepening quagmire eventually ranging across Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.’ 3 Today we could add Lebanon and Syria to that list, plus perhaps Yemen, Somalia, Sudan, and some others in central Asia.....

From Cryptogon and Cryptome.

Quotes from the document:

"In this regard, information strategists can consider clandestinely recruiting or hiring prominent bloggers or other persons of prominence already within the target nation, group, or community to pass the U.S. message. In this way, the U.S. can overleap the entrenched inequalities and make use of preexisting intellectual and social capital. Sometimes numbers can be effective; hiring a block of bloggers to verbally attack a specific person or promote a specific message may be worth considering. On the other hand, such operations can have a blowback effect, as witnessed by the public reaction following revelations that the U.S. military had paid journalists to publish stories in the Iraqi press under their own names. People do not like to be deceived, and the price of being exposed is lost credibility and trust.
An alternative strategy is to “make” a blog and blogger..."

"...There are certain to be cases where some blog, outside the control of the U.S. government, promotes a message that is antithetical to U.S. interests, or actively supports the informational, recruiting and logistical activities of our enemies. The initial reaction may be to take down the site, but this is problematic in that doing so does not guarantee that the site will remain down. As has been the case with many such sites, the offending site will likely move to a different host server, often in a third country. Moreover, such action will likely produce even more interest in the site and its contents. Also, taking down a site that is known to pass enemy EEIs (essential elements of information) and that gives us their key messages denies us a valuable information source..."

"...Hacking the site and subtly changing the messages and data—merely a few words or phrases—may be sufficient to begin destroying the blogger’s credibility with the audience..."

"...There will also be times when it is thought to be necessary, in the context of an integrated information campaign, to pass false or erroneous information through the media, on all three layers, in support of military deception activities..."

Meltdown. The Final Phase?

As Soros is quoted a month ago in an article from Bloomberg entitled, Soros Says ‘We Have Just Entered Act II’ of Crisis , we can also read in this article on Infowars and Neithercorp Press how we have just entered stage, phase, or act two of a colossal global financial crisis.

“We will not have any more crashes in our time.”
- John Maynard Keynes in 1927
“I see nothing in the present situation that is either menacing or warrants pessimism… I have every confidence that there will be a revival of activity in the spring, and that during this coming year the country will make steady progress.”
- Andrew W. Mellon, U.S. Secretary of the Treasury December 31, 1929
“[1930 will be] a splendid employment year.”

Most of us were not alive to witness the throws of the Great Depression, but for many, the quotes above sound strangely familiar. Pundits and government officials of our fateful era have taken to spewing the same kind of nonsense on a daily basis, and one begins to wonder if they are TRYING to top the ridiculous statements of their forebears in an attempt of ultimate mockery. Today, not only are we told that “green shoots” abound, but that if those green shoots fail, it will only be because we did not “believe” hard enough in their existence!...

Message To The Scum

Some readers of this blog may ask why do I use the word "scum" for the corporate establishment of our country?

I consider them "scum" because like any other kind of scum they destroy everything they touch. Here is a list of what they have destroyed, a partial list as I certainly am leaving some things out.

1. The Economy, that's obvious. It will get much worse before it gets much better.
2. Civilians all over the world. They have killed millions through illegal wars and support of dictators.
3. Freedom. They have butchered our rights under the Patriot Act and a continued barrage of police state legislation.
4. Truth. They deceive and manipulate as a rule. This is their method. 9/11, WMDs, media control, rigged elections, election promises, etc....
5. Culture. They are killing culture by making everything corporate and dumb and useful only as a lowest common denominator marketing device or as brainwashing of the public.
6. Rock And Roll. This is a personal one for me. They have literally taken the balls out of rock and roll on purpose and reduced it to commercial pop and singer songwriter musak.
7. Lifestyle. Their increased regulation of human life creates a world where you need a security password to order a pizza, or where entering a pub without a photo ID can be impossible even for a 40 year old.
8. Travel. Traveling is becoming more and more difficult as time goes on through constant screening, rules and interrogations.
9. The Environment. Just go for a nice oily swim in the Gulf, courtesy of Iran war preparations.
10. Food & Health. Massively over priced health care in the U.S. Dangerous Vaccine Scams. Genetically Modified Foods.

This is a quickly made list, but it gives anyone an idea why I think the term "scum" is appropriate.

Obama-Dodd-Frank FinReg Monstrosity Delays Derivatives Curbs until 2022!


The Obama-Dodd-Frank financial regulation bill, a miserable excuse for real Wall Street reform, is now about to gain final approval in the Senate. This wretched bill is now supported by the New England liberal (meaning Wall Street) Republican clique including Olympia Snow, Susan Collins, and Scott Brown, who are joined by the notoriously corrupt reactionary Democrat, Ben Nelson of Nebraska. This bill will create a multitude of new regulations and a number of large new bureaucracies, but it is utterly devoid of any bright-line prohibitions against the causes of the financial panic which struck the United States in 2008, and which continues to the present day in the form of a world economic depression.

The cause of the 2008 banking panic was that zombie banks and hedge fund hyenas were speculating with toxic and highly leveraged derivatives. The new bill does virtually nothing to attack the causes of this ongoing financial disintegration. It is a total defeat for the interests of the American people, and an historic victory for the Wall Street financier oligarchy which owns both the Democratic and Republican parties...

Dangerous Bubble Blower Goes To Jail; Fat Rove Still Free

This Toronto police man luckily acted quick in this instance to stop the Al-Qaeda terror. This member of the new blond Al-Qaeda wing was utilizing a new terrorist weapon against the police. Bubbles. As the policeman correctly points out, these weren't just ordinary bubbles, but ones containing detergent. "That's a detergent! Put it away!" We must quickly get rid of all the Tide off the shelves. Al-Qaeda might use it against the free people of the world. Imagine if the Al-Qaeda Jihadi Terror Monkeys get a hold of some of these bubbles? Perhaps the bubbles could be used in combination with Kung Fu as one newscaster already pointed out.

"The Obama Deception" And The Money Masters

Up until about the Kennedy assasination and the beginning of the war in Vietnam the United States is a very powerful engine for world progress. It's the assasinations, the Kennedy assasination, and the others in the 1960's, the beginning of the Vietnam War , and the beginning of the absolute domination of the Wall Street group over every other interest. Nobody else counts except the Wall Street money masters. That has now made the United States into no longer a force for progress, but something very different, often a force for destruction in the world."

- Webster Tarpley

"I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. . . . corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed."

Hear the Sound Of The Guns Of Wall Street

As pointed out in a previous post, big Wall Street banks have admitted they launder money for mexican drug cartels. This article also contends that the cartels get their weapons from the U.S. The CIA has a long history of working with the drug cartels, see here and here. Not hard to wonder then, that the FEDs aren't doing more to stop the little Falluja battlefield that has opened up on the Mexican U.S. border. Police say counties near Phoenix are no longer under their control. If you are wondering why the FEDs and Wall Street are in cahoots with the cartels, part of the answer is simply money for Wall Street, lots of it, and also undocumented money which can be used for covert operations for the so-called intelligence community.

Have a listen to the guns of Wall Street on the U.S. Mexican border:

American, Israeli, Western Terror in Iran?

From Press TV

A ranking official with the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has implicated "the US, Israel and some European countries" in the deadly blasts in the southeastern Iranian city of Zahedan.

Yadollah Javani, the head of IRGC's political bureau, said late Thursday that the latest terrorist attack in the southeastern province of Sistan-Baluchestan points to the involvement of terrorist groups under the auspices of the United States, Israel and some Western countries, which seek sectarian division, Fars news agency reported.

Two explosions in the front of Zahedan's Grand Mosque on Thursday left more than 20 martyrs and over 100 injured.

The first explosion occurred at 9:20 p.m. local time (1650 GMT) in front of the city's Grand Mosque, and was followed by a second blast within minutes.

"The enemy seeks out division between Shia and Sunni Muslims in order to create chaos in the country," Javani noted.

"One could not doubt the involvement of secret foreign services in the efforts to generate tension amongst Muslims," he further explained.

The Iranian official also noted that confessions made by Abdolmalek Rigi, the Pakistan-based Jundallah terrorist group's ringleader, before his execution last month, unveiled widespread US support for waging an insurgency against the Islamic Republic.

"Rigi's confessions prove that the US, Zionists and some European countries are directly linked with the Zahedan blasts, because he had confessed that the US wants bomb attacks to be carried out across Iran," he said.

After Rigi's execution, Jundallah was effectively disbanded and experts say that the group is highly unlikely to have carried out the latest blasts.

It is widely believed that hard-line Wahabis and Salafis trained by the CIA in Pakistan are the main elements behind the bombings.

NSA Falsified Intercepted Communications in the Gulf of Tonkin Incident

From Cryptogon.

In an echo of the debates over the discredited intelligence that helped make the case for the war in Iraq, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday released more than 1,100 pages of previously classified Vietnam-era transcripts that show senators of the time sharply questioning whether they had been deceived by the White House and the Pentagon over the 1964 Gulf of Tonkin incident.
“If this country has been misled, if this committee, this Congress, has been misled by pretext into a war in which thousands of young men have died, and many more thousands have been crippled for life, and out of which their country has lost prestige, moral position in the world, the consequences are very great,” Senator Albert Gore Sr. of Tennessee, the father of the future vice president, said in March 1968 in a closed session of the Foreign Relations Committee.

Robert J. Hanyok, a retired National Security Agency historian, said Wednesday in an interview that “there were doubts, but nobody wanted to follow up on the doubts,” perhaps because “they felt they’d gone too far down the road.”
Mr. Hanyok concluded in 2001 that N.S.A. officers had deliberately falsified intercepted communications in the incident to make it look like the attack on Aug. 4, 1964, had occurred, although he said they acted not out of political motives but to cover up earlier errors.
Many historians say that President Johnson might have found reason to escalate military action against North Vietnam even without the Tonkin Gulf crisis, and that he apparently had his own doubts. Historians note that a few days after the supposed attack he told George W. Ball, the under secretary of state, “Hell, those dumb, stupid sailors were just shooting at flying fish!”

Something Brewing in Houston?

Houston has been named, along with New York City, and Chicago, as being one of the top three sites for the next false flag controlled terror event. Prison Planet has an article up mentioning put options on a Houston based power company. I have no idea if something is brewing in Houston or not, and will do some more research later. Unfortunately, since we never properly investigated 9/11, the perpetrators are still at large, and very likely still hold powerful positions enabling them to attack again. Living in contemporary dumb downed America means never knowing when or where the real attackers might strike again to be blamed on either some distant Jihadi scapegoats or home grown terrorists to enable some new agenda.

JIhadi Terror Monkeys

I told you Spot was next! I predicted that an Al-Qaeda puppy wave would soon descend on us in a previous post. I got it slightly wrong however, as it's not dogs but now monkeys who are aiding Al-Qaeda. I am not sure what kind of disinfo, psy-op, or just plain stupid propaganda this is. Perhaps it is satire from the chinese? The War on Terror has surpassed all levels of the absurd so it is hard to tell when they might be actually being sarcastic.

From The Atlantic Wire

The People's Daily, a newspaper produced by China's ruling communist party, has either been hilariously pranked or has out-reported every news outlet in Afghanistan to secure the scoop of the century. The outlet today reports that the Taliban in Afghanistan is "training monkeys to use weapons to attack American troops." After 16 years of war and nine years of battling the U.S., the Islamist insurgents have decided to arm monkeys with "AK-47 rifles and Bren light machine guns in the Waziristan tribal region near the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan."

The Chinese author, who apparently believes that PETA is more influential than the 31 percent of Americans who oppose the Afghan war, tries to explain what's happening. "Analysts believe that apart from using 'monkey killers' to attack the American troops, the Taliban also sought to arouse Western animal protectionists to pressure their governments to withdraw troops from Afghanistan..."

The National Terror Alert also is covering the Jihadi Terror Monkeys, where they quote NATO as reassuring us that "absolutely nothing [ ] leads us to believe that this tale could be even remotely based in reality."

NASA Flight Director Confirms 9/11 Aircraft Speed As The "Elephant In The Room"

From Pilots For 9/11 Truth

06/22/2010 - ( Recently Pilots For 9/11 Truth have analyzed the speeds reported for the aircraft utilized on 9/11. Numerous aviation experts have voiced their concerns regarding the extremely excessive speeds reported above Maximum Operating for the 757 and 767, particularly, United and American Airlines 757/767 Captains who have actual flight time in all 4 aircraft reportedly used on 9/11. These experts state the speeds are impossible to achieve near sea level in thick air if the aircraft were a standard 757/767 as reported. Combined with the fact the airplane which was reported to strike the south tower of the World Trade Center was also producing high G Loading while turning and pulling out from a dive, the whole issue becomes incomprehensible to fathom a standard 767 can perform such maneuvers at such intense speeds exceeding Maximum Operating limits of the aircraft.

American Psyche Fails To Understand Current Crisis


We are living in a time of incredible corruption. That we all know. We have a generation of top down elitists who despite their ignorance are strongly arrogant in their feeling of their ability to control and manipulate the mass public. Perhaps with good reason. While many liberals in the Northeast are still confused to some degree that the Democrats and Brand Obama could give them that warm and cuddly feeling of "change" that will make everything good again, the southern anti-establishment movement is content to dig its heels in like a bull waiting to charge a red flag, only their supposed enemy goes by a name Fox News, Wall Street and the Military-Industrial Complex are only all too willing to hang in in front of them like a toreador. Socialism. With this the anti-establishment right continues the old Reagan era (and earlier) mythology of the "left," the "communists," "liberal cockroaches" or "socialists", as the ones behind all the trouble of today. Obama is the leader of this socialist revolution they contend. This is a complete, and disastrous falsehood which gives me ZERO hope for the future of this country.

I am in complete agreement that the corporations, big money, Wall Street etc. have bought out both parties. Obama is as much a Socialist as Rush Limbaugh. Yes, Obama serves the interests of the "state" but that is a state which has been completely bought off and controlled by the big banks, corporations and big money in general. The liberal surface is a charade.

I have lived in liberal countries with some significant socialist influences such as the UK, Austria, and Norway. In all three I felt that government generally worked as well if not better for the general population. I had no feeling that any of these countries weren't as free as ours, if not in some ways more so. No country is perfect, and I am sure these aren't either. Certainly the UK has some major problems as they are developing towards a police state in many ways faster then we are. When I hurt my leg however and could go to a hospital and have it looked at without paying, I can't say I thought this was "evil." Much more evil to me was when I returned to "free" America and went to a doctor for a 30 second examination which cost $300. No joke.

I don't however imagine that Obama truly intends to bring these prices down. In the corrupted system we have today, any reform is only a disguise to give more power and profit to the already powerful. The "mafia" of big business, international banks, military-industrial complex, neoconservatives, drug cartels etc... will not be satisfied until our country is completely drained of all its wealth and freedom. It is they, and not any supposed terrorists, or socialists which are the real threat to our freedoms and way of life.

The liberals of America are in many ways equally delusional. They to some degree have looked the other way as Obama continues the Bush-era wars. Some even like the idea of the big arm of the American military reaching out and "defeating" their enemies. Some think gun control, gay marriage, and abortion are still the important issues of our time. Some are fooled into thinking if a woman, or a minority is appointed to a post, it is automatically a good thing, regardless of their stand on the issues. Some don't understand or respect the importance of our constitutional right to bear arms or of free speech. All this is also wrong in my opinion.

However the anti-establishment right, is currently in opposition. The question is, what will they oppose? Just the false surface sheen of liberalism, or socialism? Or the deep rooted evil of a corporate power elite bent on manipulation, robbery, murder, and destruction?
The toreador is hanging the red flag of socialism in front of what he thinks to be an ignorant bull about to be speared once again. Don't charge the red flag. Do what the bull can't do, pick up the spear instead and watch the toreador run.

Former Clinton Official: Obama Needs New 9/11 To Restore Confidence

From Financial Times

“The bottom line here is that Americans don’t believe in President Obama’s leadership,” says Rob Shapiro, another former Clinton official and a supporter of Mr Obama. “He has to find some way between now and November of demonstrating that he is a leader who can command confidence and, short of a 9/11 event or an Oklahoma City bombing, I can’t think of how he could do that.”

Missing Iranian nuclear scientist turns up in US

From Cryptogon and The Guardian

A missing Iranian nuclear scientist has taken refuge in the Pakistani embassy in Washington following claims that he had been kidnapped by the CIA.
Iran accused Saudi Arabia of handing over Shahram Amiri to the US after he went missing during a pilgrimage to Mecca a year ago. A man purporting to be Amiri subsequently appeared in a series of internet videos. In one, the man said he was studying in the US, while in another a man calling himself Amiri said he was hiding from US agents.
This morning, a spokesman for Pakistan’s ministry of foreign affairs in Islamabad said Amiri had been “dropped off” at the Iranian interests section of the Pakistani embassy in Washington at 6.30pm (11.30pm BST) last night.
“He was dropped there by someone,” said Abdul Basit. “He’s in the Iranian interests section, not in the Pakistan embassy per se. They are making arrangements to repatriate him.”
Because Iran and the US do not have diplomatic relations, Pakistan handles Iranian interests in the US.

Pilger repeats a perfectly fitting Chris Hedges description of Obama as one who is giving his supporters the "feeling" of change, but keeping them in a perpetual state of childishness. Here is first just one little example of brand Obama in case you haven't seen it.

"Help Is On The Way." Vibrant Response Videos

I found these videos of the current training for nuclear terrorist attack going on in Indiana's Camp Atterbury as part of the Vibrant Response exercises. It is a little interesting that they chose to show the part of the exercise where they have to deny people help, food or water. I guess denying help is an important part of U.S. disaster preparedness training. These exercises train the response to Northcom's "annual big exercise that will replicate a detonated nuclear weapon in a major metropolitan city." It may just be military jargon, but the Lt. Col. interviewed talks of "launching operations against the city," perhaps just an odd choice of words.

...If Americans understood the real ambitions of Ronald Reagan and his puppeteers, and if they knew the degree to which the supposed patriotism of those folks extended beyond falsity and into the far darker waters of being an irritating irrelevance put on purely for show, then they would not only stop seeing Reagan as some sort of national hero, but would also understand that he instead launched a process far more equivalent to an invasion and occupation of this country.

The goal of the right – which cares about America about as much as it does about Burkina Faso – has been to restore the economic order last seen under Herbert Hoover, in which a tiny minority possess vast sums of wealth and there is (therefore) essentially no remaining middle class. It is nothing short of a breathtaking display of a world class greed, worthy of the ages...
