Benghazi Attack Could Have Been Prevented if US Hadn't 'Switched Sides in the War on Terror' and Allowed $500 MILLION of Weapons to Reach al-Qaeda Militants, Reveals Damning Report


The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn't been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier.

'The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,' Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.

She blamed the Obama administration for tacitly approving the diversion of half of a $1 billion Qatari arms shipment to al-Qaeda-linked militants.

More evidence to show that the US was supporting extremists to serve their geopolitical goals. The war on terror is cover for nation destroying activity.

“Responsibility to Destroy” (R2D): Total War in Yemen, Humanitarian Catastrophe, Ignored by Western Media


After NATO’s attempt to invoke the “responsibility to protect” (R2P) as justification for the destruction of Libya, it became clear that NATO was merely hiding behind the principles of humanitarian concern, not upholding them. And while it may be difficult to believe, there are still those across the Western media and policy think-tanks attempting to use R2P to justify further military aggression against nations like Syria.

However, R2P is conveniently absent amid what little talk of Yemen that does take place in the Western media. US-backed blockades and months of aerial bombardments have tipped Yemen toward a humanitarian catastrophe. Not only does both the UN and the West fail to demand an end to the bombings and blockades, the West has continued to underwrite Saudi Arabia and the UAE’s military adventure in Yemen.

The carnage and injustice visited upon Yemen serves as yet another stark example of how the West and its institutions, including the United Nations, are the greatest dangers to global peace and stability, using the pretext of defending such ideals as a means to instead undo them.

Sibel Edmonds: ISIS is US




US forces directly aided extremists in Syria, and this continues, via proxy, today. Edmonds also mentions that Al Qaeda was connected to the US State and that there will be a military coup in Turkey if their weak economy collapses. Listen to the first 4 minutes and go from there. Essential material. The events in this region are one of the causes of the refugee crisis in Europe.

US Intelligence Confirms US “Deliberately Helping ISIS”: “Bomb the Kurds Not ISIS” (RECAP)


Former Defense Intelligence Agency head Gen. Michael Flynn is not backing down from his claims that elements of the US government were aware of and supported the rise of jihadists in Syria as a means by which to overthrow its president, Bashar Assad.
As the US moves ever closer to a full-out invasion of Syria the lack of media interest in Flynn’s story is reminiscent of the one-sided (pro-war) coverage of the run up to the 2003 Iraq War.

The Trump/Sanders Phenomena


As outlandish as Donald Trump is as a presidential candidate, it’s pretty obvious why he’s topping the polls of Republican voters: he’s tipping over the carts of “politics as usual” that Americans understandably hate. In a much more responsible way, Bernie Sanders is doing the same with Democratic voters though he’s still trailing Hillary Clinton in most polls.

One of the strongest arguments for Trump and Sanders is that they have refused to prostitute themselves in the scramble for million-dollar donations, a core corruption of the U.S. political process. Trump, a real estate mogul and reality-TV star, boasts about how he rejects big-money donors because he can finance his own campaign.

Sanders relies heavily on small donations and turned down an offer to create a “super PAC” that could have raised millions of dollars from wealthy supporters. Sanders’s campaign says its average donation is $31.30 as Sanders has tapped broad support among progressives in raising $15.2 million as of July, an impressive sum but still “far behind Mrs. Clinton’s fund-raising juggernaut,” the New York Times reported.

Neither Trump nor Sanders has competed in what many political analysts consider the key initial test for any “serious” candidate – the “silent primary” of lining up super-rich Americans who pour millions of dollars into campaign war chests so candidates can hire high-priced consultants and finance negative TV ads to tear down opponents. That process has made candidates from both parties dependent on special interests.

Ironically, for a nation that denounces Iran, Cuba and other countries for having special panels of religious elders or party leaders who approve rosters of acceptable candidates, the United States now has a political system that requires most candidates to parade themselves before billionaires who then select the finalists much like the judges do at one of Trump’s beauty pageants.

Trump is not wrong when he bluntly describes how this process works, noting that the wealthy donors are sure to show up after the election with their hands out for favors if their hand-picked candidate wins. The presidency and pretty much every elected office in the United States are up for sale.

Americans across the political spectrum are rightly disgusted by this corrupt system and thus Trump stands out as someone whose personal wealth and almost comedic self-confidence make him harder to buy than, say, Jeb Bush, Scott Walker or almost any of the other Republican candidates. For different reasons, democratic socialist Bernie Sanders does too.

"The Banksters Did It": The Central Banks Have Engineered This Financial Collapse


Good news, everybody! The markets are rebounding! Yes, we just a hit a minor bump in the road there, but don’t worry, everything is back to normal now. Let’s forget about the tail end of last week and this week’s Black Monday, shall we? Pay no mind to the uncomfortable low lights of the global stock rout:
Nope, nothing to see here. And now that this dead cat bounce is underway, surely there will be no more commodity deflation or global economic slowdown or worldwide currency war orhistorically unprecedented bond bubbles to worry about, right?

OK, enough sarcasm. Readers of this column will know by now that the phony baloney stock markets, manipulated as they are from top to bottom and juiced as they are on the Fed’s QE heroin, are no longer reflective of economic reality. The only question is how far this particular dead cat market will bounce, and whether it will be helped along with more heroin from the Fed.

Saudi Arabia Beheads Nearly Twice As Many People As ISIS So Far This Year


In January, a Muslim woman from Myanmar screamed “I did not kill” and pled with her attackers for mercy, but they showed none. In the center of an intersection, she was publicly beheaded in front of spectators, her death caught covertly on video.

It’s the kind of horrifying tableau that has become almost commonplace in Western media, as it plays out each time ISIS claims its latest victims. But this woman, Laila Bint Abdul Muttalib Basim, wasn’t a victim of ISIS, but one of 110 prisoners executed by Saudi Arabia so far this year. In fact, this U.S. ally has beheaded almost twice as many prisoners as ISIS in 2015 and may be on pace to achieve a record-breaking number of executions.

Iran’s PressTV reported on Basim’s death along with several others, both foreigners and Saudi nationals, in July:

“Basim then screamed as a sword-wielding man struck her neck. Second and third blows completed the beheading and authorities swiftly removed her body from the road.”
http://www.mintpressnews.com/saudi-arabia-beheads-nearly-twice-as-many-people-as-isis-so-far-this-year/208894/

The Saudi leadership has little regard for human life and is only interested in protecting and extending their power base. They are direct supporters of extremist groups in Iraq and Syria. They need to be held to account:

What I Think Happened in Benghazi - Mike Rivero


So here is what I think was going on, over and above erasing the records of gun-running. Since there had to be a "Terror attack" to destroy the evidence of treason, why not also use the attack to boost Obama's re-election campaign?

"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." -- Robert Shapiro, former Clinton official and Obama supporter quoted by Financial Times in July 2010

Polls in September 2012 showed the Presidential race neck and neck. Many media outlets were openly predicting a Romney victory. Obama had failed to garner public approval over the killing of a man claimed (but never proven) to be Osama bin Laden, mostly because of the manner in which the body was disposed of and the obvious faked photos leaked onto the internet.

Obama needed a publicity stunt.

A small team of "Al Qaeda" terrorists, or someone playing at being Al Qaeda terrorists, were supposed to enter the Consulate and take the Ambassador and his staff hostage. Obama would let the drama build for a few days, allowing the media to hype the story, then send in the SEAL teams to "rescue" the hostages, then campaign on how he did not let the situation turn into a repeat of the Iranian hostage crisis, which would have dovetailed with the Iran bashing (and Argo).

But the best laid plans of mice and men (and Candidates) gang aft agley, as they say. We know that the CIA operatives at the annex could hear the gunfire from the Consulate. Looking at the consulate through Google Earth, one sees heavily populated residential areas less than half a mile to the east and southwest, who no doubt heard the gunfire coming from the consulate as well. Given how quickly sympathetic protests erupted across the Middle East during this incident, it is clear that the region is an anti-American powder keg awaiting a spark, which Obama inadvertently provided with his staged terror attack.

The initial "Al Qaeda" (or reasonable facsimile thereof) was a small group, but were quickly joined by Libyans pouring in from adjoining neighborhoods. What was a planned and rehearsed operation to "kidnap" the Ambassador triggered a spontaneous riot with at least 200 participants on the ground, and spun out of control, leading to the deaths of the Ambassador and others.

Obama's carefully prepped operation to make himself look like a hero instantly turned into an epic fail.

Then the "cleanup" began, first with the assassination of one of the main "terrorists" in Cairo on October 25th, an explosion at the Benghazi Police Station on November 4th, and the assassination of the Benghazi police chief on November 20th. Facebook even went as far as to censor the Navy SEALs to prevent anyone there on the ground from speaking out to the net. And the man who made the YouTube trailer for the non-existent film on which the riots were blamed was sent to prison!

This seems the simplest explanation that fits all the available facts.

Crisis News Ukraine, Yemen, Korea 25.08.2015


Several thousand people in Donetsk are demonstrating against Kiev’s policy on Monday. Residents organized a flash mob in the center of the DPR capital. Demonstrators unfurled flags of the public organization "Young Republic", DPR flags and posters saying "Poroshenko is a murderer" and "Poroshenko is a fool in US’ circus". At the same time, a unity march devoted to Ukraine Independence Day is underway in Kiev. Around 2,500 servicemen are taking part in the march.

Russia’s Emergencies Ministry has started preparing the 37th humanitarian aid convoy for Donbas that will deliver textbooks for the new school year in Donbass region. The humanitarian aid convoy will consist of more than 40 trucks that carry around 700 tons of aid.

The commander of the Saudi eighteenth army brigade, Major General Abdul Rahman bin Saad al-Shahrani, was killed in an attack by Yemeni forces while inspecting military deployments along the kingdom’s southern border regions, Saudi Arabian armed forces announced in a statement released by the official Saudi Press Agency on Sunday. Earlier in the day, Yemeni troops took control of two Saudi army bases in the border region of Jizan ...



Since this clip came out the Koreans have deescalated the situation on the penisula. The video also mentions the recent financial-market meltdown and that China may be blamed for weakeness in the US.

‘US Withholding Chilcot Inquiry Docs As They May Discourage Future Wars US is Interested in’


Washington’s refusal to declassify documents that could inform the UK probe into the 2003 invasion of Iraq is a major scandal in London. Yet the State Department spokesman says he has never heard of the Chilcot Inquiry. RT talks to American author and activist David Swanson. He thinks information is being deliberately withheld.



The issue that Swanson raises is that the war was knowingly illegal and they want to keep further proof of this hidden. We already know, from documents such as the Downing Street Memos, that the war was launched on lies - the manipulated and outright fabricated intelligence points concerning WMDs.

Bombing ISIS is Like Making Attacks on the Ho Chi Minh Trail During the Vietnam War: The Extremists are Supported by Outside Backers that Funnel Supplies Through Turkey - A Letter to Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop


Dear Foreign Minister Bishop,

The following is a notice I have put out on social media. It deals with the difficulty of stopping an enemy without addressing their logistical supply lines - drawing attention to the fact that the conflict in Syria is, in reality, a proxy war. Those participating in backing the extremists, heads of Nation States or military/Intelligence people, are war criminals:

Bombing ISIS is like making attacks on the Ho Chi Minh trial during the Vietnam War. The problem is that the extremists have outside backers that funnel personnel and supplies through Turkey and that these backers are Nation States. General Wesley Clarke explained the problem in an interview on Fox News, stating that 'we' use extremists for foreign policy objectives:



In the following German News clip you can see trucks crossing the Turkish border going directly to ISIS occupied areas in Syria. Foreign fighters also freely cross the frontier with no Turkish military forces in sight:



Furthermore there is a declassified Defence Intelligence Agency document that states "The West, Gulf Countries, and Turkey" are supporting 'Salafist, Muslim Brotherhood, and Al Qaeda in Iraq', in the Syrian war:



The central problem is that we are witness to a western-backed proxy conflict that is intended to remove the Government of Syria.

To stop the war the countries backing the extremists must end their quasi-covert support. The border with Turkey must be closed, and the secular Government in Syria must be backed (the one that propaganda says is intentionally targeting civilians - as much as the US would during their air strikes).

It was illegal from the get go to sponsor proxy forces in Syria - forces that were never truly moderate or secular. And because the real target in Syria is the secular Government, expect mission creep to occur where we will see a switch from bombing ISIS to bombing of the Syria Army - much like the Turks recently bombed the Kurds, who were effectively fighting ISIS, while claiming they were also going after ISIS. Presently the Israelis are attacking Syrian Army positions in the Golan after 'stray rounds', likely fired by extremists, crossed their border. The target of these surrounding states is the Syrian State, not ISIS. That is the root of the problem we face, whilst we play games bombing the extremists in a (thus far) ineffective fashion.

War crimes investigations based on the declassified DIA documents are in order.
______________________________

Ms Bishop, you should be aware that ex-UK Prime Minister Tony Blair is currently being targeted as a war criminal for his involvement in the Iraq War. Similarly George W Bush, and others in his administration, are also targets of prosecution for their illegal invasion of Iraq (based on deliberately orchestrated WMD lies).

To stop ISIS, western backing of the extremists (that includes allies Turkey and Saudi Arabia) must end.  

Here is some related video material that further explains the situation in Syria:

1. Respected journalist Robert Fisk, interviewed on Australian TV, says that the FSA (moderate rebels) are a myth and that he was free to travel around Syria to report on the war (contrary to the  propaganda demonising the Syrian Government). He implies that support for the Syrian Army is necessary to defeat the extremists:

2. In the following clip FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds, just back from Turkey, reports on the immediate situation concerning the Syrian-Turkish Border. She confirms that ISIS is a puppet of western intelligence, and that they are directly aided by Nation States:

CrossTalk: NATO’s Bluff?


Is NATO sleepwalking into a conflict with Russia? Well, it certainly looks like it. Ever since the western-backed forced regime change in Kiev last year, the Pentagon and the State Department have been itching for a confrontation with Russia. This still may happen, but the results could be catastrophic. CrossTalking with Joe Lauria, Stephen Zunes, and Richard Weitz.



A good point raised was that western audiences do not hear the informed voices of the people targeted by US foreign policy, but only the talking points offered by the establishment pundits. Deconstructing these issues is important because it helps stop conflict.
