Tulsi: A Living Reminder of Iraq’s Liars and Apologists | The American Conservative

Posted by M. C. on August 5, 2019

Gore Vidal once christened his country the “United States of Amnesia,” explaining that Americans live in a perpetual state of a hangover: “Every morning we wake up having forgotten what happened the night before.”

Estimates of the number of civilians who died during the war in Iraq range from 151,000 to 655,000. An additional 4,491 American military personnel perished in the war. Mozhgan Savabieasfahani, toxicologist at the University of Michigan, has organized several research expeditions to Iraq to measure the contamination and pollution still poisoning the air and water supply from the tons of munitions dropped during the war. It does not require any expertise to assume what the studies confirm: disease is still widespread and birth defects are gruesomely common. Back home, it is difficult to measure just how many struggle with critical injuries and post-traumatic stress disorder.

The gains of war in Iraq remain elusive, especially considering that the justifications for invasion—weapons of mass destruction, Saddam Hussein’s connection to al-Qaeda, the ambition to create a Western-style democracy at gunpoint—remain “murky at best.” That’s a quote from the 9/11 Commission’s conclusion on the so-called evidence linking Iraq to Osama bin Laden’s group, which actually did carry out the worst terrorist attack in American history.

As far as stupid and barbarous decisions are concerned, it is difficult to top the war in Iraq. It is also difficult to match its price tag, which, according to a recent Brown University study, amounts to $1.1 trillion.

Report: Gang Stole BILLIONS from UK Taxpayers, Infiltrated Govt, Funded al-Qaeda and Labour

Posted by M. C. on April 1, 2019

Billions of pounds over 20 years and no one saw it! MI5 missed the whole thing! I can believe that. Russian spies ran rampant in MI5 & 6 in the 30’s through 50’s…at least. A sieve.

The Labour party missed Billions of pounds over 20 years being stolen but accepted ‘donations’ with no questions. It sound like the US defense department.

A lot of knowing people had their pockets lined with stolen tax payer money.

Open borders, overbearing government, Muslim London mayor. A “conservative” prime minister that wants her country to be ruled by Brussels. Conservatives over there are closer to our democrats. Labour…

The future is looking grim for the UK.

A vast network of British Asian gang members linked to Abu Hamza and the 7/7 bombers infiltrated government agencies, defrauded taxpayers of billions of pounds, and funnelled tens of millions to Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda over 20 years, an investigation claims to have found.

The report suggests that, through a complex series of tactics, including exploitation of illegal immigration, benefits fraud, VAT fraud, and mortgage fraud, the gang managed to steal an astonishing £8 billion.

These funds were allegedly used to provide lavish lifestyles for the gang’s members, including luxury cars and properties — but also helped bankroll Osama bin Laden’s notorious al-Qaeda network, claims a Sunday Times investigation.

It is believed that £80 million was sent to the jihadists to help them fund their radical Islamic terrorist activities, with a source claiming that “MI5 had information that the ultimate destination for some of the money was Osama bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad.”

The report indicated that investigators had found “20 potential internal fraud cases including (gang) members in government agencies” in one company alone, and that “infiltration was widespread”. Read the rest of this entry »

What if Osama bin Laden Had Legitimate Grievances? – Antiwar.com Original

Posted by M. C. on January 4, 2019

Why, exactly, is the US so unpopular, from West Africa to South Asia?

https://original.antiwar.com/danny_sjursen/2019/01/03/what-if-osama-bin-laden-had-legitimate-grievances/

by 

This article originally appeared at TruthDig.

You’re not supposed to utter these words, but what the heck: Osama bin Laden had a point. No, his grievances, as well as those of his followers and sympathizers, didn’t excuse the mass murder of 9/11 – not by a long shot. After all, I am a native New Yorker whose family and neighborhood were directly touched by the horror of those inexcusable attacks. Still, more than 17 years after the attacks on the Pentagon and twin towers, it’s worth reflecting on bin Laden’s motives and discussing the stark fact that the United States government has made no moves to address his gripes.

Now is as good a time as any. The U.S. military remains mired in wars across the Greater Middle East that have now entered their 18th year. The cost: $5.9 trillion, 7,000 dead American soldiers, at least 480,000 locals killed and 21 million refugees created. The outcome: more instability, more violence, more global terror attacks and a US reputation ruined for at least a generation in the Islamic world.

Let’s review the three core grievances in bin Laden’s 1996 fatwa – essentially a declaration of war – against the US, and then look over Washington’s contemporary policies on the issues:

  1. Bin Laden objected to the presence of US bases in Saudi Arabia specifically and across the region more generally, due to their proximity to the holy cities of Mecca and Medina. Furthermore, bin Laden criticized the US backing of Saudi Arabia’s despotic royal regime.

But rather than pull its troops “offshore,” the US military has expanded its empire of bases, both in the Mideast and throughout the world. Despite the slaughter in Yemen and the murder of a Washington Post journalist, Washington still inflexibly backs the Saudi monarchy. The US has even negotiated record arms contracts with the kingdom, to the tune of $110 billion. Clearly, Washington has only doubled down on this front. Read the rest of this entry »

Exclusive: FBI Told Former Agent Not to Help 9/11 Victims Build Case Against Saudi Arabia | 28Pages.org

Posted by M. C. on August 2, 2018

Owens, a plaintiff in the suit against Saudi Arabia, says news of the FBI’s obstructionism in her case “confirms what we’ve been suspecting all along—that the government, through three administrations, has decided that staying friends with Saudi Arabia is more important than holding accountable the sponsors of the 9/11 attacks.”

The FIB-To Serve and Protect-themselves and the state.

You and I are not in the picture.

Exclusive: FBI Told Former Agent Not to Help 9/11 Victims Build Case Against Saudi Arabia

By Brian P. McGlinchey

A retired FBI counterterrorism agent with a notable role in the story of 9/11 says the FBI’s Office of the General Counsel told him not to cooperate with attorneys representing 9/11 victims in their suit against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, because it could harm U.S.-Saudi relations.

In an exclusive interview with 28Pages.org, Kenneth Williams, author of an ignored July 2001 memo warning that Osama bin Laden may be training pilots in the United States, explains why he has now decided to ignore the FBI’s instructions,and illustrates how the failure to share critical information continued into the 9/11 investigation—possibly to the benefit of the kingdom… Read the rest of this entry »

Where Was Osama bin Laden on September 10, 2001? One Day Before 9/11 He Was in a Pakistani Military Hospital… | Global Research

Posted by M. C. on September 11, 2017

Who WAS at the 9/11 tiller?

http://www.globalresearch.ca/where-was-osama-bin-laden-on-september-10-2001-one-day-before-911-he-was-in-a-pakistani-military-hospital/5607143

This CBS Report suggests that Osama bin Laden had been admitted to a Pakistani Military hospital in Rawalpindi on the 10th local time, less than 24 hours before the terrorist attacks.

The report does not mention when he was actually released. 

Nonetheless, this report casts doubt on the official narrative to the effect that Osama bin Laden was responsible for coordinating the 9/11 attacks. Read the rest of this entry »

The Lost Hegemon reviewed by David Ray Griffin – PaulCraigRoberts.org

Posted by M. C. on January 24, 2017

http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2017/01/23/lost-hegemon-reviewed-david-ray-griffin/

The scheme was to destroy the Soviet Union’s economy by luring it into an unwinnable war in Afghanistan. The method for doing this was for Osama bin Laden, working for the CIA, to invite fundamentalist Muslims in Saudi Arabia and other countries to Afghanistan, where the U.S. military would arm and train them (Operation Cyclone). Engdahl believes that the weakening of its economy led to the dissolution of the Soviet Union. 
Now we are doing it to ourselves. Sad, ridiculous. But criticize and one becomes a traitor.

Seymour Hersch Math: Osama + Obama = Lies

Posted by M. C. on May 16, 2015

Here is another bombshell from Seymour Hersch.

Remember the pictures of Obama and crew gazing up at a live feed of the Bin Laden murder mission. The story started to fall apart when the 30 some minute live video of the OBL assassination really was only a few minutes. Or maybe none.  This was so no one could be put on the hot seat when the questions stated coming.

According to Hersch’s research everything we were told about the mission is a lie.

OBL’s location was given to us by a squealer looking for the reward money. There never was any two-year drone surveillance of couriers.

The story of the vaccine program as a cover to get OBL DNA was a cover for the squealer.  This resulted in the vaccine program director going to jail for supposedly helping the US and a halt to vaccination programs.  The squealer’s and Pakistani official’s involvement had to be kept quiet.

How Is Chris Dorner Like Osama Bin Laden? They Both Had the Goods on the System.

Posted by M. C. on February 18, 2013

Max Blumenthall listens to the LA cops online.

Like many, I knew that we were for Bin Laden before we were against him. We gave Al Qaeda their start fighting Russia in Afghanistan. The spell was broken when we defiled sacred land by basing troops in Saudi Arabia and killing his people in Kuwait. Bin Laden probably would have quite a story to tell when captured and interrogated. So he was assassinated.

Chris Dorner was a cop that raised a stink about racism in the ranks of the LAPD so of course they found a reason to fire him. The anger was too much and he took out his aggression on his accusers and their families. If he was tried the truth would come out. Can’t have that! He was assassinated also. This, I said to myself, looks very familiar.

The above link is a Max Blumenthall interview on the Scott Horton radio show. Blumenthal was listening.  How Is Chris Dorner Like Osama Bin Laden? They Both Had the Goods on the System.o the LA cop radios via cell phone app. He talks about the conscious effort to light the cabin afire. Just like Waco. How the cops lied about gunfire coming from the cabin. How the MSM media was told to shut up about what was happening and how they did as they were told. Nothing surprising there. Blumentall calls the MSM “Bootlickers for Backshooters”.

Government sponsored terrorism…courtesy of the LAPD.  Cops killing their own to protect their hides.  What are you or I worth to them?  Right, not much.
Have a nice listen.

Be seeing you
