CIA covert ops needs Saudi money: decades story recurring – American Herald Tribune

Posted by Martin C. Fox on July 24, 2017

Also, the NY Times report noticeably underlines that such a long intelligence relationship helps explain why the United States has been reluctant to openly criticize Saudi Arabia for its human rights abuses, its treatment of women and its support for the extreme ideology Wahhabism, that has inspired many of the very terrorist groups.

In the latest violation which brought uproar across the Muslim world in particular, Saudi Arabia executed a prominent Shia cleric, Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr, for challenging the oppression of the royal family and demanding human rights, yet the Obama administration did not publically condemn the action. Also, another form of Saudi human rights abuses to which the US has had no clear condemnation is its war on Yemen that has so far claimed the lives of more than 8,270 people including women and children.

Not to mention the small matter of enabling 9/11.

Botched US Drone Strike Kills 15 Afghan Police – News From Antiwar.com

Posted by Martin C. Fox on July 23, 2017

http://news.antiwar.com/2017/07/21/botched-us-drone-strike-kills-15-afghan-police/

The US has tried to bolster the Afghan government in Helmand Province with air support in their fighting against the Taliban, but the support appears to have gone horribly wrong today, as a US drone attacked and killed at least 15 Afghan police.
And this just what we have heard about, too high profile to cover up. 

Tell me again, when Afghanistan or the Taliban ever attack US?

What are we doing over there besides making everything worse? Time to go.

There is hope for peace but…America’s powerful neocons, who have been pressing for war against Russia, will be furious. Expect the media war against Trump to intensify. So too claims that Trump colluded with Moscow to get elected.

President Trump, according to numerous reliable Washington sources, has decided to end US arms supplies and logistics support to Syria’s jihadist rebels that have fuelled the bloody six-year conflict. Read the rest of this entry »

U.S. Lawmakers Seek to Criminally Outlaw Support for Boycott Campaign Against Israel

Posted by Martin C. Fox on July 20, 2017

To Hell With You Citizen

https://theintercept.com/2017/07/19/u-s-lawmakers-seek-to-criminally-outlaw-support-for-boycott-campaign-against-israel/

THE CRIMINALIZATION OF political speech and activism against Israel has become one of the gravest threats to free speech in the West.

But now, a group of 43 senators — 29 Republicans and 14 Democrats — wants to implement a law that would make it a felony for Americans to support the international boycott against Israel, which was launched in protest of that country’s decades-old occupation of Palestine. 

Anyone guilty of violating the prohibitions will face a minimum civil penalty of $250,000 and a maximum criminal penalty of $1 million and 20 years in prison. Read the rest of this entry »

Sen. John McCain – So Which Is Worse, Brain Cancer Or Being Left To Rot In A Cambodian Prison Camp?

Posted by Martin C. Fox on July 20, 2017

http://tucson.com/news/local/sen-john-mccain-diagnosed-with-malignant-brain-tumor/article_e8277172-6cde-11e7-baba-3bd459ef9b97.html

McCain is lucky, again.

http://www.elusivetruth.com/tag/pave-spike/

One of the sharpest critics of the Pentagon’s performance was an insider, Air Force Lt. Gen. Eugene Tighe, who headed the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) during the 1970s. He openly challenged the Pentagon’s position that no live prisoners existed, saying that the evidence proved otherwise. McCain was a bitter opponent of Tighe, who was eventually pushed into retirement.

On one occasion, a Pentagon photo expert refused to go along. It was a missing man’s name gouged into a field, he said, not trampled grass or paddy berms. His bosses responded by bringing in an outside contractor who found instead, yes, shadows and vegetation. This refrain led Bob Taylor, a highly regarded investigator on the Senate committee staff who had examined the photographic evidence, to comment to me: “If grass can spell out people’s names and secret digit codes, then I have a newfound respect for grass.”

Cashless Society Alert: Visa Will Be Giving Up To $500,000 To Restaurants That Go ‘100% Cashless’

Posted by Martin C. Fox on July 20, 2017

And going cashless would also potentially allow government authorities to act as “gatekeepers” for the system.  In other words, the government could require all of us to meet certain conditions before we were allowed to participate in the cashless system, and if we refused to meet those conditions we would be unable to buy, sell, open a bank account, get a job or do much of anything else in society.

Trump ends covert CIA program to arm anti-Assad rebels in Syria, a move sought by Moscow

Posted by Martin C. Fox on July 20, 2017

I hope Trump doesn’t plan on visiting Dallas anytime soon.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/trump-ends-covert-cia-program-to-arm-anti-assad-rebels-in-syria-a-move-sought-by-moscow/2017/07/19/b6821a62-6beb-11e7-96ab-5f38140b38cc_story.html?utm_term=.c179559d3de0

President Trump has decided to end the CIA’s covert program to arm and train moderate Syrian rebels battling the government of Bashar al-Assad, a move long sought by Russia, according to U.S. officials.

Officials said the phasing out of the secret program reflects Trump’s interest in finding ways to work with Russia, which saw the anti-Assad program as an assault on its interests. The shuttering of the program is also an acknowledgment of Washington’s limited leverage and desire to remove Assad from power. Read the rest of this entry »
