Are Exported Scraps Of Contaminated WTC Steel Now a Possible Source Of Deaths And Illness In India?

As some may already know, much of the scrap steel from the ruins of the World Trade Center was quickly shipped off to India after the attacks to be used as scrap metal. This lead to concerns about hazardous materials which might be also present in the scrap and groups like Greenpeace criticized the hasty shipping of the possibly hazardous steel, described in articles like this one from a Green Party website. Despite the refusal of insurance for those involved in the clean up, the secrecy surrounding the materials and their shipment, and an Indian Supreme Court order prohibiting imports of hazardous waste into India, a private investigation into the steel was said to have shown "no toxic contamination" according to one article.

However, recent unexplained deaths and injuries in India to scrap workers might reveal a connection. Described here in the Deccan Herald, "A 35-year-old man died at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), 19 days after he was exposed to radioactive material in the scrap market of Mayapuri in west Delhi. Another victim continues to remain critical, doctors said on Tuesday." The article continues to report that "Since the indigenous Cobalt 60 cameras were phased out in the 1990s, experts suspect that the source from Mayapuri may have come from outside the country."

Cobalt 60? Apparently that is the radioactive material believed to have caused the death and illnesses of the scrap market workers which was recovered from the scrap market according to (see photo caption) this article.

So where could it have come from? According to the EPA website, cobalt is one of the 22 metals found in the air at ground zero and it is also a trace metal found in the dust samples by the USGS. Perhaps more importantly however Steven Jones specifically mentioned in a discussion (27:00 in) with Dr. William Deagle that if found in tests of WTC dust "Cobalt 60 would be particularly interesting." The discussion has something to do with whether nukes where used in the destruction of the towers or not. Cobalt 60 is also mentioned in an article on OpEd News discussing a test for isotopes in WTC dust. The results of these tests however are not known to this author.

Despite these coincidences, The Times Of India and Outlook India describe a long unused Gamma Iradiator from Delhi University bought by a scrap dealer as the source of the radiation. A Wall Street Journal article also describing this latest development however includes this passage:

Earlier, other government agencies involved in the investigation of the radioactive waste said they were sure it was from outside India and must have been part of an international scrap consignment imported by scrap dealers.

In addition, stainless steel has been found in Germany which was radioactive.

The radioactivity has been identified as coming from Cobalt 60, one of four isotopes of the normally non radioactive alloying element more often found in magnets and tool steels than stainless. Investigations have led the government to confirm one source, Vipras Castings from India. They suspect four additional firms from India:

SMK Steels
Pradeep Metals

Now many articles are now blaming the indian sourced radioactivity on the above mentioned "Gamma Iradiator" from the Dehli University, but if that is the case, how does it explain that "the team of scientists discovered 11 different sources of radiation in Mayapuri's scrap heaps, and an anonymous source at one of the investigating bodies told India's Mail Today newspaper that the Cobalt 60 was believed to be part of a larger, yet undiscovered consignment of metal", reported in this article.

Could there be a connection between these reports of radioactivity and the WTC steel shipped out to scrap dealers in India?

Update: Radioactive steel was also found a couple years ago from China. China along with India received the majority of the WTC scrap steel.

We've Got Five Years, That's All We Got....Or Not?

From Is Iran Really a Threat?, by Ray McGovern on Counterpunch.

Indeed, the Iranians have been about five years away from a nuclear weapon for several decades now, according to periodic intelligence estimates. They just never seem to get much closer. But there’s no trace of embarrassment among U.S. policymakers or any notice of this slipping timetable by the FCM.

Not that NIEs – or U.S. officials – matter much in terms of a potential military showdown with Iran. The “decider” here is Netanyahu, unless Obama stands up and tells him, publicly, “If you attack Iran, you’re on your own.”

Don’t hold your breath.

Levin to Goldman Sachs: ‘You Knew It Was a S–tty Deal!’

More info on the video at PrisonPlanet.

It's Patsy Time!; One Of These Things Is Not LIke The Others!

An article on Prison Planet, If Abdulmutallab Trained With Al-Qaeda, Why Did The U.S. Government Let Him On A Plane?, raises questions about a new video claimed to show Abdulmutallab training with "Al-Qaeda."

Fuming with the evisceration of the ludicrous official story behind the Detroit plane bomber incident, the dubious Pentagon front IntelCenter has released a video tape which allegedly shows Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab training with “Al-Qaeda” in Yemen. Unfortunately, the tape still fails to explain why the U.S. government intentionally let a known terror suspect board a commercial airliner...

As detailed in an earlier post, the State Department was asked to purposefully not revoke Abdulmutallab's visa by an unnamed U.S. intelligence agency. The State Department was responding to warnings from the father of Abdulmutallab and began the process to revoke a visa, which now includes asking the opinion first of the intelligence agencies before revoking the visa. This centralization, although sold as a security improvement, could however enable any hypothetical corrupt elements in the intelligence agencies with independent agendas to better control operations, and keep elements of the government which are out of the loop from getting in the way. Not a happy thought.

Anyway why should you listen to me, these geezers have got it all figured out below.

Update: Some of the footage is old - ABC News.

Surprise, Surprise. FBI Official Story Of Anthrax Mailings "Impossible" According To Army Microbiologist

From ProPublica.

FBI accused Bruce Ivins couldn't have grown the 10 trillion spores needed for the Anthrax mailings without being noticed by his colleagues, according to Henry S. Heine, a microbiologist who supervised Ivin's work.

A microbiologist who supervised the work of accused anthrax killer Bruce E. Ivins explained to a National Academy of Sciences panel Thursday why the arithmetic of growing anthrax didn't add up to Ivins' mailing deadly spores in fall 2001.

"Impossible," said Dr. Henry S. Heine of a scenario in which Ivins, another civilian microbiologist working for the Army, allegedly prepared the anthrax spores at an Army lab at Fort Detrick. Heine told the 16-member panel that Ivins would have had to grow as many as 10 trillion spores, an astronomical amount that couldn't have gone unnoticed by his colleagues.

A journalist, attempting to smear Jesse Ventura and the 9/11 Truth Movement on Fox News, instead reveals that Larry Silverstein, the owner of Building 7, was on the phone with his insurance company the day of 9/11 trying to get them to authorize an immediate demolition of Building 7. This is tantamount to smoking gun proof of guilt, since to set up a building for demolition takes days, if not weeks.

From the Fox News article:

Shortly before the building collapsed, several NYPD officers and Con-Edison workers told me that Larry Silverstein, the property developer of One World Financial Center was on the phone with his insurance carrier to see if they would authorize the controlled demolition of the building – since its foundation was already unstable and expected to fall.

A controlled demolition would have minimized the damage caused by the building’s imminent collapse and potentially save lives. Many law enforcement personnel, firefighters and other journalists were aware of this possible option. There was no secret. There was no conspiracy.
While I was talking with a fellow reporter and several NYPD officers, Building 7 suddenly collapsed...

As Alex Jones points out in a new Prison Planet article, "How did Silverstein expect to demolish the building safely when such a process takes weeks or even months to properly set up, even without the additional chaos surrounding WTC 7 on 9/11? How could explosives have been correctly placed on such short notice inside a burning building that had already been evacuated – unless the explosives were already in place?"

Goldman Sachs "An Angel" According To Marc Faber

Marc Faber sees the latest Goldman investigations more as a PR move to appease the angry masses. "They targeted Goldman because it stands as a symbol of Wall Street, plus it's also Isreal, you understand?...And now they go after Goldman Sachs to distract the attention of the people and target the minority, Wall Street and Goldman Sachs. And maybe the intention is not to hurt Goldman Sachs, but just to gain popularity with the middle class and the lower classes of America, so they will perceive Mr.Obama to have done something against the evil Wall Street."

Update: There is also an article about him on Kitco where he downplays the precious metals market manipulation claims.

Co-sign Open Letter From Members of U.S. Military

To co-sign open letter go to

From Current and Former Members of the U.S. Military

Peace be with you.

To all of those who were injured or lost loved ones during the July 2007 Baghdad shootings depicted in the “Collateral Murder” Wikileaks video:

We write to you, your family, and your community with awareness that our words and actions can never restore your losses.

We are both soldiers who occupied your neighborhood for 14 months. Ethan McCord pulled your daughter and son from the van, and when doing so, saw the faces of his own children back home. Josh Stieber was in the same company but was not there that day, though he contributed to the your pain, and the pain of your community on many other occasions.

There is no bringing back all that was lost. What we seek is to learn from our mistakes and do everything we can to tell others of our experiences and how the people of the United States need to realize we have done and are doing to you and the people of your country. We humbly ask you what we can do to begin to repair the damage we caused.

We have been speaking to whoever will listen, telling them that what was shown in the Wikileaks video only begins to depict the suffering we have created. From our own experiences, and the experiences of other veterans we have talked to, we know that the acts depicted in this video are everyday occurrences of this war: this is the nature of how U.S.-led wars are carried out in this region.

We acknowledge our part in the deaths and injuries of your loved ones as we tell Americans what we were trained to do and what we carried out in the name of "god and country". The soldier in the video said that your husband shouldn't have brought your children to battle, but we are acknowledging our responsibility for bringing the battle to your neighborhood, and to your family. We did unto you what we would not want done to us.

More and more Americans are taking responsibility for what was done in our name. Though we have acted with cold hearts far too many times, we have not forgotten our actions towards you. Our heavy hearts still hold hope that we can restore inside our country the acknowledgment of your humanity, that we were taught to deny.

Our government may ignore you, concerned more with its public image. It has also ignored many veterans who have returned physically injured or mentally troubled by what they saw and did in your country. But the time is long overdue that we say that the value of our nation's leaders no longer represent us. Our secretary of defense may say the U.S. won't lose its reputation over this, but we stand and say that our reputation's importance pales in comparison to our common humanity.

We have asked our fellow veterans and service-members, as well as civilians both in the United States and abroad, to sign in support of this letter, and to offer their names as a testimony to our common humanity, to distance ourselves from the destructive policies of our nation's leaders, and to extend our hands to you.

With such pain, friendship might be too much to ask. Please accept our apology, our sorrow, our care, and our dedication to change from the inside out. We are doing what we can to speak out against the wars and military policies responsible for what happened to you and your loved ones. Our hearts are open to hearing how we can take any steps to support you through the pain that we have caused.

Solemnly and Sincerely,
Josh Stieber, former specialist, U.S. Army
Ethan McCord, former specialist, U.S. Army

The Terrorist Leaders Who Die, And Are Captured, And Die Again

As illustrated in an article by Steve Watson at, the two Al-Qaeda leaders claimed to have been killed on Monday, actually were claimed to have been captured and killed many times before.

Try to remember the names of the two 'top Al-Qaeda leaders' who they claim were killed. One is called Abu Ayyub al-Masri, the other is called Abu Omar al-Baghdadi. And remember that they are supposed to have been both killed a couple days ago in a raid or airstrike (it's not clear which) on Saturday as you can see from this UPI article for example.

First let's look at Abu Omar al-Baghdadi. Read in this TimesOnline article about how he was claimed to have been captured a year ago. In the same article mention is made of previous claims that he had been killed. So now we are back to having killed him again. Will he rise from the dead once more to be killed or captured when some positive news is needed on the war front?

If that wasn't bad enough, there is also a Reuters article where a U.S. General is quoted as saying Al-Baghdadi doesn't even exist. In fact, according to the general, he was created by the other 'terrorist' just killed, Al-Masri. The general is quoted in the article as saying "Masri had co-founded a "virtual organization in cyberspace called the Islamic State of Iraq in 2006 as a new Iraqi pseudonym for AQI. To further this myth, Masri created a fictional head of the Islamic State of Iraq known as Abu Omar al-Baghdadi."

Now let's look at the other one, the one the general says is real, Abu Ayyub al-Masri. In another TimesOnline article we can read about how he also was captured two years ago, and killed once before that.

U.S. Waking Up? Only 22% Trust Their Government


9/11 Connected L-3 Designed NLE 2010 Nuke Detonation Exercises, Dov Zakheim's Booz Allen Hamilton Involved

From their own website we can read how L-3 Global Security & Engineering Solutions, a division of L-3 Communications, got the contract to "provide exercise support in design, development, conduct, and evaluation of NLE2010, the nation’s largest annual Tier 1 operations-based exercise."

According to Wayne Madsen "a long-time L-3 Communications consultant for the National Security Agency (NSA) was, according to our source, one of the very few recipients of the live video stream that caught the first plane hitting the North Tower."

L-3 was also one of the corporations "flagged by the SEC" as having been traded suspiciously before 9/11.

Another corporation involved in the exercises, Bridgeborn, describes the exercises in a press release.

Public Intelligence has published a copy of an overview of the exercises which Fema has asked be taken down.

Another corporation involved with NLE 2010 according to the L-3 article, is Booz Allen Hamilton, owned by the Carlyle Group. Joan Dempsey, top assistant to CIA Director George Tenet, said "I like to call Booz Allen the Shadow IC." IC is short for 'Intelligence Community.' Booz Allen Hamilton has notable members including Dov Zakheim, who is a vice president there. Zakheim was the Pentagon controller when the Trillions went missing the day before 9/11, is a PNAC signatory, contributed to the PNAC Rebuilding America's Defenses article and is mentioned by some as a mastermind of 9/11 for his work as a CEO of Systems Planing Corporation which works on fly-by-remote systems for aircraft. It is also mentioned on several websites that Booz Allen was a client of Blessed Relief, the charity said to be a front for Osama Bin Laden.

Southern Poverty Law Center's Out Of Whack List Of Patriots. SPLC, Who Do You Serve?

An organization which claims it is dedicated to "fighting hate and bigotry, and seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of society" seems to have taken on the role instead of simply defending our corporate owned government at all costs and attacking any of its detractors.

On a list which for the SPLC's supporters, one can only guess, is probably meant to be a list of dangerous types, we find people like Ron Paul, listed as a 'radical' conservative. Why? Because he wants to end the U.S. wars of aggression? Because he knows our financial system is corrupt?

Also on the list, Luke Rudkowski, who has fought for medical assistance for the 9/11 emergency workers, and wants a new investigation of 9/11, and has founded a youth group, We Are Change, with many chapters across the nation who protest and actively work to get more then just propaganda from our media and our politicians. Oh, dear me, scary scary bigot he must be. He actually thinks the American establishment is corrupt, he must be a racist.

They lump people with principles and ideals, like those, together with demonic shape-shifting false prophets like Glenn Beck, who may very well be working for the CIA.

SPLC, get with it, or get out.

As Bob Dylan says: "Your old road is rapidly changing, get out of the new one, if you can't lend a hand."

Below is a video, of the 'dangerous patriot', Luke Rudkowski, who has recently gotten the attention of Stephen Colbert.

The global financial crisis, it is now clear, was caused not just by the bankers' colossal mismanagement. No, it was due also to the new financial complexity offering up the opportunity for widespread, systemic fraud. Friday's announcement that the world's most famous investment bank, Goldman Sachs, is to face civil charges for fraud brought by the American regulator is but the latest of a series of investigations that have been launched, arrests made and charges made against financial institutions around the world.

Just When We Finally Start To Get Our House In Order, That's The Time For The Cabal To Make Their Next False Flag?

Right around 9/11 we had the revelations concerning TRILLIONS of unaccounted for Pentagon spending coming to the surface, the Enron Scandal, the bursting of the bubble. Are we not in a similar time with all these investigations starting to take place? As some are suggesting, could the rogue network of Wall Street and Washington, the Cabal, the Octopus, it has many names, be ready to strike once again?

Germany to Review Legal Steps Against Goldman Sachs

Washington's Blog: Goldman Sacked?

Washington's Blog covers the Goldman Sachs indictment.

The video included in the article is essential to see, as Dylan Ratigan does a good job in describing how lame faced and blatant the corruption on Wall Street and in Washington is.

Ratigan mentions in the video how the attorney generals on the state level have been 'castrated' and have lost much of their power to go after corruption, as that power has been transferred to the federal level, where of course it can be more easily controlled, as we know Washington is already bought off by Wall Street.

The parade of corrupt scum marches on! Are the nooses ready?

Reminds me of another post I made a long time ago about the Christmas bomber. It detailed how an unnamed intelligence agency had asked the State Department NOT to revoke the visa of Mutallab. Asking the intelligence agencies before acting on their own intelligence is what represents a new system of 'coordination' on the federal level. Yes, coordination for easier corruption.

In Ridiculous Story, Bin Laden Wants Satellite Dish, Atta Plays Playstation Before 9/11

In a new article on the Daily Mail's website, MailOnline, we hear how "Osama Bin Laden requested a satellite TV dish be installed in his Afganistan hideaway so he could watch the September 11, 2001 terror attacks as they happened" only to find later that he "was unable to get a signal." Nasser Al Bahri, Bin Laden's former bodyguard, also known as Abu Jandal (aka The Killer), also saw Mohammed Atta hanging out in a Pakistan safe house as well where he "was playing video games on a PlayStation where he was flying a plane."

According to the article, Al Bahri also states that "he was the first person to help the CIA link Bin Laden to the September 11 hijackers, who he said were his 'friends'."

Funny, I guess DIck Cheney didn't completely buy his story since in the audio segment from 2006 below he says they have nothing to link Bin Laden to the attacks at all.

New York, Washington Top of List, but LA, San Francisco Preparing For 10 Kiloton Nuclear Attack

Some stray articles I found thinking of the recent warnings.

From Homeland1 and The Daily News Of Los Angeles, LA preparing for nuclear attack.

A couple years ago, from SfGate, Preparing for the unthinkable - nuclear attack.

Of course, we know that Al-Qaeda (whatever, whoever that is) is 'certain' to attempt to attack us in the next six months from this Washington Post article.

With these kinds of choices, one almost wishes they would just stick to knocking down single buildings, and not mile radiuses of them, whoever "they" actually are.

Update: Fema has NLE exercises planned for nuclear detonation scenarios for May of 2010 in Regions IX (CA,NV,AZ) and VIII (MT,WY,UT,CO,ND,SD) and the NCR, or National Capitol Region, as well as continuity of government scenarios under the name Eagle Horizon.

It's Not The Socialists.


I am proud of the 9/11 Truth Movement, Ron Paul and what could be a real positive change in the party called the Republican Party, but the swallowing whole of the originally libertarian, Ron Paul inspired Tea Party by mainline Republicans simply angry at Obama, in my opinion, is not an encouraging sign.

The status quo which has brought this country into so much trouble, is like the split tongue of a snake. Two parties which are both corrupt, bought off by a corrupt establishment, and though they have similar policies, manage to convince the majority of Americans that their side is good, and the other so evil. The football game continues. The wars continue. The debts continue. The corruption continues.

A majority of republicans are scared to tears about a socialism they believe is rapidly encroaching on them, being led by pied pipers like Sarah Palin, Beck or Rush Limbaugh. Obama is the fascist...uh...socialist.....figure that one out. The reality is that Obama, like George W. Bush, whatever his opinions, strengths or weaknesses may be, is only a frontman, bought off already by vested interests like the banks, investment banks, oil and arms industry, and the international corporations in general. These are the people who rule us today, and the football game of bashing liberals and socialists, who still exist in nice places like Norway, Sweden, or France, is a joke. Oh yes, it's all the liberals', the socialists' and unions' fault. Give me a break. Learn to stop thinking this Reagan brainwashing and we make a great leap forward as a country. The corruption is as much 'right' as 'left.' If the idea of free market is just used to give more power to the massive international corporations which already have stolen so much and control so much, then we are walking backwards, thinking we are escaping some kind of imagined 'socialism.'

Sure, communism has a bad and corrupt history indeed, but although the National Socialists in Germany took the name 'socialist' as part of their name, it was actually the Democratic Socialists of Germany who openly spoke out against the Nazis.
Hate socialism if you want, the real enemy however is corruption, a corruption which can easily be disguised as 'free market' capitalism as well. Obama in any case, as Ron Paul has stated, is hardly a socialist surrounded as he is by his Wall Street advisors.

Get it right, or they win, once again.

ISRAEL has drawn up secret plans to destroy Iran’s uranium enrichment facilities with tactical nuclear weapons. Two Israeli air force squadrons are training to blow up an Iranian facility using low-yield nuclear “bunker-busters”, according to several Israeli military sources.

The attack would be the first with nuclear weapons since 1945, when the United States dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The Israeli weapons would each have a force equivalent to one-fifteenth of the Hiroshima bomb.

Diesel "Be Stupid" Ad Campaign Perfectly Suited For Dumbed Down Masses

Feeling like the critics might be right and you actually are one of the dumb downed idiots who can't think for himself? Have no fear, just buy some jeans, their ad campaign will make you feel good about it. The marketing world isn't interested in improving you, they just want to sell you something. In this case, relief from the truth.

In one ad the slogan is "smart critiques, stupid creates," but stupid doesn't create. Stupid is ineffectual. Stupid is by definition, not an ability, but a lack or an inability to be able to accomplish something. The corporations don't want you to know that, they like you dumb, confused and submissive. If stupid has any power, it is the power of the dumb brute or thug, which may be what this ad campaign is encouraging.

It is an attitude with a special relevance for one country, the United States, where some are totally convinced of the corporate "Just do it" mentality brought now to new levels of ignorant brutality in our wars of murder in the middle east where American troops frequently open fire on innocent people. But hey, they got balls. I guess murdering people takes balls and heart, like the diesel ad campaign says. It doesn't take brains.

The "stupid is the new cool" gist of the new diesel ad campaign is of course exactly the wrong thing today. One of America's biggest problems is its lack of appreciation for intellectual rigor and thought in general, disabling the ability of the public to understand the dangers and issues that affect them. Even if you find pleasure in ignorance, being stupid is dangerous, for yourself and others. It does however keep you in the corporate feeding trough, until the farmer comes to get his bacon, that is.

The article describes key methods used to suppress not just the price of gold, but also the truth about their market manipulations from getting out, including how the key witness coming forward with proof has been subjected to a hit and run car attack, or how there was a fire where the gold and silver records for the CFTC are kept. After delivering damning evidence at the CFTC hearing William Murphy was contacted by a number of major media outlets, all later canceled their interviews.
Nonetheless you can read about how traders at JPMorgan Chase openly bragged to whistleblower Andrew Maguire, a former Goldman Sachs silver trader, about how they would manipulate the market and even send "a signal to the market in advance so that other traders could make a profit during price suppression episodes." In early February, "the price of silver was to be taken down regardless of what happened to the employment numbers and that the price of silver would end up below $15 per ounce. Over the next couple of days, the price of silver was indeed taken down from $16.17 per ounce down to a low of $14.62 per ounce."

How Your Favorite T.V. Show Is Really Mind(less) Control

Too many ads on T.V.? No way, they have figured out one better. Now your favorite show is actually selling you something too, or convincing you to behave a certain way. Here is the link to the Wall Street Journal article.

Ron Paul: Obama is Not a Socialist

An article in the Wall Street Journal quotes Ron Paul as stating the now obvious "he is not a socialist...he's a corporatist....[he] takes care of corporations and corporations take over and run the country."

One could however argue that subsidies for the poor in his health care plan offer some elements of 'socialism,' but the general tone and direction of his policies seems to be extremely ingratiating towards corporate interests, and always ceding great compromises in their direction. Sensible arguments and discussions seem not to be fitting for the American debate however, where it seems there are still masses of people just looking to find a commie pinko to hate.

Evil Bananas.

I was browsing through Cryptogon, when I caught an article on how Chiquita funded death squads in Colombia. If you follow the links back to the original article from Huffington Post on how Attorney General Eric Holder was one of the lawyers involved in getting Chiquita out of trouble on that one, you find the shocking statement that Chiquita's payments of money and guns to the Colombian paramilitaries led to the murder of 4000 civilians in Colombia.

So next time you eat that yummy, healthy Chiquita banana, just know that thousands of people have died for the greed of the company that brought it to you. Not that the banana itself is really to blame, the sick and corrupt corporations are.

Nonetheless, that banana is bleeding buckets of red blood.

Seattle Times Says "Soldiers Did As Instructed"

One newspaper at least is apparently taking their role to be defending the actions of today's troops at all costs. It's the video games that are to blame, according to The Seattle Times. The action of the troops "although horrific, is understandable...The gunners did exactly as they were taught by the video-game industry and the U.S. military."

Not assigning any blame to the U.S. troops and the military command structure above them has become a kind of mantra in the U.S. born perhaps partly out of guilt for the real and supposed mistreatment of Vietnam veterans. So today many live in a fantasy world where U.S. soldiers and even the U.S. military can do no wrong. This attitude itself, helps to put soldiers above any moral law or rules of engagement and allows the mindless and cold-blooded killing of innocent people seen in the recent Wikileaks video.

News On Bullion Manipulation

An article by Patrick A. Heller on Numismaster contains intriguing descriptions of illegal manipulation of the gold and silver commodity markets as well as some links to videos of the CFTC hearings.

U.S. Supported Repressive Regime In Flames in Kyrgyzstan; Important Manas Air Base Future Threatened

The opposition is claiming that at least 100 have died in protests there. Russia today is reporting the government of Kyrgyzstan is stepping down. This most likely will spell trouble for the Manas Air Base, an important U.S. support base for the Afganistan conflict and according to the Christian Science Monitor, the "only air base the US has access to in Central Asia." It was only the repressive regime which has now stepped down which was allowing the U.S. to continue to operate the base.

Wikileaks' Home Run, And The Fans Are Cheering

A quick look this morning at some of the comments on the New York Times or Time Magazine articles on Collateral Murder, and one can see how many people throughout the world are relieved that someone, somewhere is carrying the torch of investigative journalism forward into the darkness of the War on Terror.

Afterall, unlike what Bush Administration member James P. Pinkerton writes about the soldiers from Hurt Locker that "the warriors are presented as better versions of ourselves," the soldiers displayed in Collateral Murder are creepy and clearly display a wanton blood lust to kill innocent people. Collateral Murder is real, The Hurt Locker, was a work of fiction. That these soldiers from the Wikileaks video will one day come back to the U.S. and some might end up being police officers doesn't bode well for our country. The video does even more harm to an already battered U.S. image abroad. But the image isn't the problem, the reality is.

The actions of Wikileaks, and their whistleblowers inside the military, to get this video to the public show how powerful a group can be fighting against the blood lust of the Military-industrial complex, the media controlled by it, and the neoconservatives that wantonly support it.

Satan isn't happy about this one.

Delusional General Defends Brutal Murder of Reuters Journalists And Iraqi Civilians

Does the good general also believe it is good to murder wounded civilians and those trying to help them? It must be also All-American now to shoot at children. America is totally and utterly morally, intellectually, and financially lost.

The Coward Locker

The text below is taken from a comment by Danse on 9/11 Blogger.

Percent of civilian deaths:

WWI -- 14%
WWII -- 67%
1989-2005 -- 90%

Anyone who joins the military in the 21st century will become a participant in the mass killing of innocent civilians. The average US soldier makes Jeffrey Dahmer look like a humanitarian. This is not meant in jest. Soldiers may not eat their victims like Mr. Dahmer, but the body count of the US military makes your average serial killer look like a common criminal.

Baby killers? You betcha. This is not "war". This is mass butchery. The "soldiers" in the video have clearly been brainwashed to take delight in the practice of mass murder. They kill humans with the relish of a sadistic child burning ants with a magnifying glass. The new "video game" style of "war" is the height of cowardice. There isn't a trace of honor in the activities of these men.

Blaming soldiers for war is a little like blaming McDonald's employees for factory farming. Most of them come from poor backgrounds and are economically blackmailed into becoming killers. So long as there are large disparities in wealth there will be a steady stream of bodies to feed the maw of the military machine. Nevertheless, I think it's important we emphasize that the soldier's profession is a despicable one. Parents need to teach this to their children. These individuals do not deserve respect but repudiation. This has nothing to do with self-defense. The heroes are on the side of the resistance.

The Wikileaks video the Pentagon didn't want to come out. This is one of the most disgusting videos I've ever seen. I am truly ashamed to be from the same country as these sadistic killers.

This is what the U.S. is doing in Central Asia. Not just the military men involved here, but all the neoconservatives from Bill Kristol to Wolfowitz and Dick Cheney are murderers with an ocean of blood on their hands. Damn them forever to eternity in Hell.

They cold-bloodedly even open fire on those trying to save the wounded. Pure evil, made in the U.S.A. Most important post ever on this blog.

If you would like more details on the footage, here is a link to the original Wikileaks page for the video.

An interesting discussion of this horrible video is on msnbc below where Dylan Ratigan is clearly choking on his words:

Despite what Dylan Ratigan says, it is clear there is a disgusting bloodlust in the voices of the soldiers involved which is disturbing and indefensible.

And if that's not enough for you, here is an article on Cryptogon with more gruesome details of our troops at work in an unrelated event.

Chaos On The Grand Chessboard Part II

Karzai threatens to join the Taliban.

A recent New York Times headline "Karzai Steps Up Attacks on NATO, Boxing In the West" is almost an understatement. The article details the developing deterioration between Karzai and his Western backers. As the article states "Many fear the relationship is only likely to become worse, as Mr. Karzai draws closer to allies like Iran and China, whose interests are often at odds with those of the West, and sounds sympathetic enough to the Taliban that he could spur their efforts, helping their recruitment and further destablizing the country"

It gets even worse. An unnamed member of the Afghan parliament speaking on condition of anonymity told the newspaper that Karzai said in a parliamentary meeting "If you and the international community pressure me more, I swear that I am going to join the Taliban."

Chaos On The Grand Chessboard

An article in The Majlis, makes the case that the recent 'anti-western' elements of a speech by Afgan leader Hamid Karzai, are actually not so inexplicable after all.

Most of the establishment in the U.S. has been just oh so insulted by the words of their own puppet government leader Karzai, who turned his head upwards into the darkness where the strings are coming from and shouted out a "Not so fast." And perhaps he is feeling some heat as Nato has recently turned its possibly lethal gaze towards his mafia brother, who is accused of corruption and involvement in the drug trade.

Is Karzai inexplicable and as Mark Shields said on the PBS Newshour "just an enigma to me"?

Was the US involved itself in election fraud in Afganistan as Karzai claims? Or is Karzai just playing a high stakes propaganda game with his international backers? Whatever election fraud there was seems to have been in his favor. There has been a tug of war over who should sit on an election watchdog group, Karzai wanting total control of the group which originally had three out of five members from the U.N.

Though the details of the truth here is an interesting nut to try to crack, an old article in the Nation from many months ago had this to say:

The machinations required to maintain Hamid Karzai in a position to enrich himself and his favored warlords -- even when it involves making excuses for electoral fraud and worse -- are precisely the sort of "entangling alliance" about which George Washington warned in his farewell address to a young nation.

Obama Appoints Pesticide Lobbyist to Chief Agricultural Negotiotator

Mr. Change does it again. From Cryptogon.

Well it's all perfectly orwellian. The way it should be when a country is run like organized crime.

Washington Post Now Also Weighs in on Obvious Swine Flu Scandal

"Millions of H1N1 vaccine doses may have to be discarded" is the headline in the Washington Post as they join the choir admitting that the Swine Flu was not all it was cooked up to be

What a shame. Too bad the profiteers didn't get to inject as many of us as they wished with their mercury love potions. Maybe they will do better next time and the Washington Post can celebrate their success.

On an article from Business & Media Institute goes over some of the media hype leading up to the swine flu vaccination effort.

Increased Intelligence Checks In Answer To Christmas Bomber, Only Did Anyone Tell Obama It Was Intelligence Who Purposefully Didn't Revoke His Visa?

An article in the New York Times explains how new security protocols for people flying to the United States, establishes "a system that uses intelligence information and assessment of threats to identify passengers who could have links to terrorism, a senior administration official said Thursday. The new approach will replace a broader layer of extra scrutiny that had been imposed recently on all passengers from 14 countries, most of which are Muslim. The change, which will be announced Friday by the Department of Homeland Security, is the result of a review of security at international airports ordered by Mr. Obama after the Christmas Day attempt to blow up a jetliner bound for Detroit."

Ok, so no more extra scrutiny for those from muslim countries, and now we are back to everyone is a suspect and more intelligence "assessment of threats."

But there is one important bit of information here being completely overlooked. An unnamed U.S. intelligence agency KNEW about the Christmas Bomber and asked the State Department NOT to revoke his visa when they wanted to after being warned by the bomber's father.
I covered that months ago in this post.

So more intelligence, or more screening would have done nothing, as one of our intelligence agencies purposefully wanted the suspect to have his visa to travel to the U.S.

Of course the New York Times would probably just call that a 'conspiracy theory'. Another article in the newspaper seems to link the new film by Roman Polanski, The Ghost Writer, about a Prime Minister linked with CIA torture and War on Terror corruption, with other conspiracy movies as " crude and heavy-handed, their formulations absurd, even outrageous." But the New York Times article is much more itself an outrageous piece of heavy-handed rebuking of anyone who challenges the 'official stories' its writer Sam Tanenhaus seems to find so comforting and without doubt.
