The greatest hope of voters who turned out by the many millions, was that our long national nightmare would end and the vicious abuses of the Bush era would end. Alas, Obama, despite huge public support, is not ready to confront the Pentagon, the neo-cons, the Zionists or the CIA torturers or ANYONE. The latest horror is the news today that the lawyers for men tortured under Bush at Gitmo and other nefarious prisons, will be arrested and put in prison for the crime of passing on the details of the torture….to this faux President!!!! My god, this is the last straw for me.
This entire story is beyond depressing. The gate keeper for Obama is Rahm Emanuel, the Anubis who prevents anything from crossing Obama’s desk that is in any way connected to the War Against The Entire Muslim World that isn’t vetted by Mossad, first.
Anubis is the god of embalmers. And if anything has been preserved in a coffin, it is the US foreign policy vis a vis Israel. There seems no crimes that are hideous enough so long as they are committed in the service of the expansion of the Jewish domination of the Middle East.
So the letter, written by lawyers, sent to the President, a letter that is of the utmost importance due to it being heavily censored by the military, on their own desires, is of utmost importance for the President to read this, personally, himself. Let’s look at this story which is NOT being heavily published in America but broke in England, far across the seas:
Lawyers for Binyam Mohamed face the incredible prospect of a six-month jail sentence in America after writing a letter to President Obama detailing their client’s allegations of torture by US agents.
What is this? The Soviet Union? Nazi Germany? Warlord Japan? This first sentence makes my hair stand on end. Today, Obama was hobnobbing with world leaders after kissing the Queen of England. Is this American democracy at work? What the hell? The privilege review team – officials from the US department of defence who monitor and censor communication between Guantánamo prisoners and their lawyers – have previously been accused of using their powers to suppress evidence of the abuse and mistreatment of detainees.
All totalitarian states strive to hide torture while, at the same time, insuring that everyone knows, they will be tortured if they notice torture. This is the true terror state. The War on Terror was won by Terror, itself. When disputing with undemocratic military despots, one has to have OPEN DEBATE which is the last thing despots want.
Obama left much of the neo con team assembled by Bush in place in the military. Which means, he is part of this Terrorist organization that tortures people and then threatens to put in prison, anyone uncovering the torture. This way, Obama can accuse China or Cuba of torture while gagging the lawyers and victims of outright illegal US torture! Clive Stafford Smith, director of legal charity Reprieve, and his colleague Ahmed Ghappour have been summoned to appear before a Washington court on May 11 after a complaint was made by the privilege review team.
Arrest the privilege review team! Arrest anyone connected with the torture, the covering up of the torture. We have precedent: the Nüremberg Trials! Stafford Smith had written to the president after judges in the UK ruled against the release of US evidence detailing Mohamed’s alleged torture at Guantánamo. The letter [PDF] asked the president to reconsider the US position and urged him to release the evidence into the public domain. He attached a memo summarising the case because his US security clearance gives him access to the classified material. In order to comply with classification guidelines, the memo did not identify individual officers by name or specify locations of the abuse.
I want to see this secret memo! I think it should be enshrined right next to the Constitution in the Rotunda in DC. I want everyone to read all the sordid details AND THE NAMES OF THE TORTURE TEAM. I want this taught in school. After all, we demand that Germany do this vis a vis their own Nazis! Below are photos I took of the documents in question:
Below is the letter with the details of the torture which the lawyers submitted to the military Nazi censors who then censored….THE ENTIRE THING!!!!
That’s it! The entire thing has been deleted. This is like putting a bag over all of our heads. The US has a long and very ugly history of cooperation with torturers abroad. The US then can deny any connection with these monsters even though a number of victims of this torture have come forward with disturbing details about US ‘contractors’ asking questions while vicious brutes torment victims.
All my youth, I argued desperately with my father to please come out in public against the CIA because of this. He kept telling me, ‘But we are keeping the US public safe, Elaine!’ This is not working in our favor. It is saving nothing. All we are doing is, turning the CIA into the KGB or the Gestapo. Literally, in fact. To this day, the government won’t release OSS information concerning Operation Paperclip from WWII and that was before I was born!
The dire effects of all this are obvious: the reason the US warned England, if they obeyed international laws as set down by the rulings of the Nüremberg Trials, the US will cease being an ally of England! Meanwhile, we are very much, allied, tied hand and foot to a nation rapidly morphing into Nazi Germany: Israel. Before we discuss that ugly mess, first, back to the Afghanistan war which Obama is embracing like Brer Rabbit and the Tar Baby:
Last week, in revealing the outlines of his new plan for Afghanistan, President Obama spoke about “benchmarks” that would be applied to measure progress. The comment inevitably raised parallels to the benchmarks that were demanded by meny members of Congress, including Obama, in regard to the 2007-2008 surge of US forces in Iraq. So far, at least, Obama has released no information about the benchmarks, and that — among other things — is giving rise to concern within the administration and in Congress that public and congressional support for Obama’s Afghan plan might start heading south….
“How the hell do you formulate a policy based on benchmarks if there are no benchmarks? And how the hell do you have a policy if there’s no way to know if benchmarks are being met?”
This is so depressing. Obviously, there are no ‘benchmarks’ because this is the road to hell. On that road, we see a sign pointing to Afghanistan. Along the sides of the road are skeletons and swords and helms strewn about. We have to step over them to go down this road to destruction.
Osama has benchmarks! He made these utterly clear: to strike at the US and then trick us into diving into war against all Muslims. The first step was to lure us into Afghanistan. Oh, he must have laughed to death long ago as we do exactly as he wished! He said, quite clearly, that the hope was the US would do all of this via debt. And we did. We are going bankrupt. We are rapidly being destroyed by our own financial wizardry.
As we pass each benchmark, Osama rubs his hands with glee. Running more than a trillion in the red, the US is headed towards utter self-destruction. How can we miss this obvious fact? It is written on billboards lining this road to hell.
I was just disgusted with all the goofy propaganda about how mean the Taliban are with women! Meanwhile, we tout the Saudis as ‘moderates’ when they were WORSE than the Taliban and are only slightly, ever so slightly, granting very tiny bits of civil rights to women in Saudi Arabia. Very little. The Russians did liberalize Afghanistan, unlike the US. Now, we see all the so-called liberation work going down the drain, fast.
And look at that! I heard over and over again, from the liberal side, that Iran was pure evil because they execute gays. Well, the US right wing also began to use this as a club, too. But then, we are the ones who are protecting the present power structure in Iraq. And they are doing exactly what Iran is doing. Under our own aegis. Not that we are so very hot, either.
California just voted to destroy the civil rights of gays. The Catholic Church has set itself against all gays, too, while dressing up like old cross dressers on Sunset Boulevard in LA. Obama made a stab at stopping the ‘do not ask/do not tell’ policies. We are a long, long ways to go for real civil rights for gays, here.
The initial surge will add 17,000 troops to the 36,000 already there. Then, later this year, there is to be a second troop surge of another 17,000 or so. This mass of soldiers is expected to be deployed to a series of new garrisons to be built in far-flung regions of this impoverished, rural, mostly illiterate warlord state that is ruled by hundreds of fractious, heavily armed tribal leaders. We’re not told how much this escalation will cost, but it will at least double the $2 billion a month that American taxpayers are already shelling out for the Afghan war.
Jim’s editorial was from yesterday. Here is Obama and Rahm the Mossad agent’s answer to Jim:
President Barack Obama is weighing whether to deploy 10,000 more troops to Afghanistan but lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are questioning an increased commitment and seeking specific measures of progress against the deteriorating conditions in Afghanistan and Pakistan. When President Obama took office, the U.S. had about 38,000 troops in Afghanistan. The White House has announced plans to send 21,000 reinforcements in coming months, increasing the tally to almost 60,000.
This is Vietnam escalation on STEROIDS! This is pure insanity! Doubling the troops! I warned everyone, we had to make it perfectly clear to Obama, if he did this, we would erupt in fury. Instead, fools are thinking, they can reach him only if they assent to whatever he does. Hillary is 100% for this, too, and McCain pretends to be in opposition but he supported Bush in Afghanistan and Iraq and wants to bomb, bomb, bomb Iran.
The antiwar movement is split due to the desire of many people to support Israeli Jewish wars while being for peace, in all other cases. Except when the US needs to kill Muslims of whatever stripes. So we have no movement at all at this point. Move On just elected a new leader. There were exactly 5 voters in this little ballot. They chose a Zionist, of course. What a stunning development…gads. Meanwhile, poor people who think they have ‘input’ are being treated as saps. They hold precious meetings and talk and talk but the guys running the place are operatives put in place to control and DEFY these same, trusting people.
I say, ditch Move On and move out. Time is running out.
Tehreek-e Taliban Pakistan (TTP) chief Baitullah Mehsud today claimed credit for yesterday’s Lahore attack, saying the attack was retaliation for the repeated US drone strikes in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA).
Perhaps even more ominously, Mehsud vowed to “take revenge from America,” adding that it would not be in Afghanistan, but in Washington. The TTP leader said “soon we will launch an attack in Washington that will amaze everyone in the world… The maximum they can do is martyr me.”
The US is bomb, bomb, bombing Pakistan more and more and the Taliban are retaliating and this tit for tat will tatter our nation. This meaningless war with irate natives who hate our guts has no good ending. I saw today that they openly attacked Kabul, yet again. We can’t drive trucks to Afghanistan from Pakistan thanks to the many, many attacks. We can drive in Iraq but only because the Shiites are using us as their cat’s paw in their battle with the Sunni who are being relentlessly driven out, one step at a time, sort of like how Israel is treating the Palestinians.
Israel’s new Foreign Minister, Avigdor Lieberman, has been questioned by police for at least seven hours over corruption allegations.
Police said Mr Lieberman was questioned under caution on suspicion of “bribery, money-laundering and breach of trust” as part of an ongoing investigation.
A little over a week after President Obama offered a “new beginning” in US-Iran relations in what was seen at the time to be a significant diplomatic overture, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates has insisted that he prefers economic sanctions against the nation to diplomatic initiatives.
America has already placed a massive level of sanctions on the Iranians, and has struggled to get international support for additional sanctions given the paucity of evidence of any Iranian wrongdoing. Indeed, while Gates spoke vaguely of Iran “clandestinely” building enrichment capacity, he conceded once against that Iran was not enriching uranium beyond the low levels needed for the soon-to-be-completed Bushehr power plant.
NOTHING HAS CHANGED. Torture, war, threats against Iran: all are identical policies compared to Bush. The differences between Obama and Hillary vanished long ago. Now, the differences between Bush and Obama are vanishing, too. The military has to be brought to heel. Instead, they are turning Obama into a heel.
China said Thursday it appreciates France’s explicit commitment on not backing any form of “Tibetan independence”.
China and France released a joint press communiqué both in Beijing and Paris on April 1.
The communiqué says that “France fully recognizes the importance and sensitivity of the Tibet issue and reaffirms its adherence to the one-China policy and the position that Tibet is an integral part of the Chinese territory, in accordance with the decision made by General Charles de Gaulle, which has not changed and will remain unchanged. Based on this spirit and the principle of non-interference in each other’s internal affairs, France refuses to support any form of “Tibet independence”.
“France made a solemn commitment,” Qin said. “France’s position is explicit and the meaning very clear and we hope France can abide by the principles and the spirit set forth in the communiqué.”
Meanwhile, China uses arm twisting coupled with serious talks about the Chinese 50 Year Plan and how the US cannot extricate itself from these plans and if Europeans are smart, they should begin cutting the US policies adrift. I know for a fact, all of the Islamic princes and kings are quietly doing this, too. And I bet, they are going to institute the gold standard very suddenly the hour China announces its New World Order of the Dragon.
