Scared of Being Exposed, Saudis Demand US Court Reject Lawsuit Showing They Funded 9/11

By Matt Agorist New York, NY — Last year, for the first time since that fateful September morning 16 years ago, families of victims of the 9/11 terror attacks used a new law to go after Saudi Arabia in lawsuits for their role in the attacks. After evidence was revealed during the lawsuit showing the Saudi Arabian embassy in Washington may have funded a “dry run” for the hijackings carried out by two Saudi employees, Saudi Arabia went into panic mode. They are now attempting to use their pull inside the United States to have the lawsuits thrown out. “The 9/11 victims’ families and survivors have submitted dozens of declassified FBI reports and affidavits regarding Saudi involvement in the attacks so it shouldn’t surprise anyone that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and its high-priced lawyers are still trying to hide behind baseless procedural arguments,” said Terry Strada, national chair for […] Read More

5 Ways the U.S. Enabled the Radical Islamic State

ISIL, now the Islamic State, has become the stuff of nightmares, and the US is, at least partially, to blame. In fulfilling the terrorists’ dream — transforming into a state with an army — ISIS, now the Islamic State, has become the stuff of nightmares for much of the Middle East and the West. I almost wrote that it had become “the worst nightmare,” but I’ll reserve that for when it obtains nuclear weapons. (Wait — what?) But, to some extent, the Islamic State is a product of the United States. Here are five reasons why: 1. The general state of chaos in which the United States left Iraq with, to this day, no strong central government. 2. “The U.S. has ensured that ISIS can reinforce its fighters in Iraq from Syria and vice versa,” writes Patrick Cockburn in an excerpt from his new book posted atForeign Policy in Focus. Some […] Read More

1992: INSIDE THE SHADOW CIA

This will go a long way into explaining “Who is Wackenhut and what are they up to?” Not mentioned in this article is the fact that Wackenhut is also in charge of security at Area-51, the place where UFO activity has often been sighted.

2003: What’s Happened to America?

Americans have been schooled into compliance and complacency. by Sheldon Richman, July 4, 2003 Who says the government schools and the welfare state don’t work? They work perfectly. They were designed to put the American people into a political coma, and that’s what they’ve done. The objective would never be framed that way. The politicians would say that the purpose was to create unity, patriotism, and gratitude toward those who “protect our freedom,” that is, the government. But in fact, the purpose was to induce a political coma, and it’s done so. How else to explain that few people give a hoot that we were obviously lied into war by the president of the United States, the vice president, the secretary of state, the secretary of defense, and others, without a proper congressional declaration, and led to believe that Saddam Hussein was both willing and able to launch so-called […] Read More

2007: The Great Dollar Crash of 07

Tuesday, 06 February 2007 By Mike Whitney The massive equity bubbles which arose from artificially low interest rates and the deliberate destruction of the dollar by reckless increases in the money supply have shifted trillions of dollars from working class Americans to the predatory aristocrats at the top of the economic food chain. The gulf between rich and poor has grown so wide that it now poses a direct threat to our increasingly fragile democracy. Whatever future developments may prove to be, my best guess is that the US will continue to maintain a faade of Constitutional government and drift along until financial bankruptcy overtakes it.??? Chalmers Johnson, Empire V. Democracy: Why Nemesis is at our Door??? 02/06/07 “ICHBlog” — – Every time a US Dollar is traded, a check is issued on an account that is overdrawn by $8.6 trillion. (That is the present size of the national […] Read More

2012: Spy agency taps into undersea cable

WASHINGTON–For decades, the National Security Agency did most of its spying by plucking information out of thin air. With a global network of listening stations and satellites, the NSA eavesdropped on phone conversations in Saddam Hussein‘s bunker, snatched Soviet missile-launch secrets and once caught Brezhnev in his limousine chatting about his mistress. The NSA’s task was relatively simple then because most international phone-and-data traffic moved via satellites or microwave towers. The agency sucked up those signals and sorted through them with supercomputers. Few of its eavesdroppers risked life or limb, and those they spied upon were often none the wiser. But today the NSA’s snooping capabilities are in jeopardy, undermined by advances in telecommunications technology. Much of the information the agency once gleaned from the airwaves now travels in the form of light beams through fiber-optic cables crisscrossing continents and ocean floors. That shift has forced the NSA to […] Read More

2006: Who are the War Criminals?

by Felicity Arbuthnot Global Research, November 10, 2006 http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=viewArticle&code=ARB20061110&articleId=3790 Fate certainly deals a strange hand. President Bush Jr., commented on the conviction of President Saddam Hussein, for crimes against humanity, in Waco, Texas, site of the massacre of the Branch Davidian religious group, in April 1993, by the U.S. Army, FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. Under President Clinton’s watch, they laid siege to the building from February to April, subjecting those inside to continual sleep deprivation by playing deafening music and even continual screams of rabbits being slaughtered. Finally, surrounded by tanks, massive amounts of CS gas were sprayed in, then military pyrotechnic devices. Between seventy four and a hundred burned to death, including twelve between one and four years old. The building was then razed to the ground, allegedly to destroy the evidence. From the town where this horror was perpetrated by the US military […] Read More

2007: The Anti-Empire Report: Some things you need to know before the world ends

William Blum May 4, 2007 If the United States leaves Iraq things will really get bad This appears to be the last remaining, barely-breathing argument of that vanishing species who still support the god-awful war. The argument implies a deeply-felt concern about the welfare and safety of the Iraqi people. What else could it mean? That the US military can’t leave because it’s needed to protect the oil bonanza awaiting American oil companies as soon as the Iraqi parliament approves the new written-in-Washington oil law? No, the Bush administration loves the people of Iraq. How much more destruction, killing and torturing do you need to be convinced of that? We can’t leave because of the violence. We can’t leave until we have assured that peace returns to our dear comrades in Iraq. To better understand this argument, it helps to keep in mind the following about the daily horror […] Read More

2003: IS AMERICA EVIL? WE ASK THE CHURCH OF [censored].

By Eric Gillin 02.18.03 America’s war against Iraq, which is coming any day now, come hell or high water, has upset the entire globe. Iraq is understandably pissed, but even NATO — an organization dedicated around the idea that an armed attack against a member is considered an armed attack on all its members — can’t seem to figure out what to do about America. Who better to ask than the Church of [censored]? But before we dive right in, there are some things you should know about these Satanists. They don’t worship goats or do anything special with virgins. They don’t believe in gods or devils or the afterlife. And there is no such thing as absolute good or absolute evil. It’s all kinda relative, depending on your personal interests. So it follows that in this kind of Satanism, political philosophy is an individual’s choice. And while this […] Read More

The Great 911 Deception & its Reptilian Effect

In their nightmare plans for the future of humanity, 911 was meant to be a symbolic act of terror, a gateway into the nether world of humanity’s knee-jerk, flight or fight, reptilian mind. A mind based on fear and negative emotion. About a month before the US Presidential elections in 2000 I had an overwhelming sensation of a huge cloud of evil enveloping humanity. In my mind’s eye I saw a bottomless black pit into which this evil would drag us down to imprison and enslave us there for another entire cycle of the ages, to control us with an icy grip right down to the molecular level of being. This force was truly reactionary. It was anti-evolutionary, of the reptilian mind, desperate to stop humanity from moving on to a more enlightened age on this Planet. At that time, I wasn’t paying much attention to the US elections. […] Read More

O’Neill: Iraq Planning Came Before 9/11

Sat Jan 10, 6:25 PM ET By SCOTT LINDLAW, Associated Press Writer CRAWFORD, Texas – Former Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill contends the United States began laying the groundwork for an invasion of Iraq (news – web sites) just days after President Bush (news – web sites) took office in January 2001 — more than two years before the start of the U.S.-led war that ousted Saddam Hussein. “From the very beginning, there was a conviction that Saddam Hussein was a bad person and that he needed to go,” O’Neill told CBS’s “60 Minutes” in an interview to be aired Sunday night. The official American government stance on Iraq, dating to the Clinton administration, was that the United States sought to oust Saddam. But O’Neill, who was fired by Bush in December 2002, said he had qualms about what he asserted was the pre-emptive nature of the war planning. “For […] Read More

2004: New WMD Report Slams Bush White House

  By Jim Lobe, Inter Press Service January 9, 2004 Three leading non-proliferation experts from a prominent think tank charge that the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush “systematically misrepresented” the threat posed by Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction. In a 107-page report released Thursday, Jessica Mathews, Joseph Cirincione and George Perkovich of the Washington-based Carnegie Endowment for International Peace (CEIP) call for the creation of an independent commission to fully investigate what the U.S. intelligence community knew, or believed it knew, about the true state of Iraq‘s WMD program between 1991 and 2003. They say that the probe should also determine whether intelligence analyses were tainted by foreign intelligence agencies or political pressure. Cirincione told reporters, “It is very likely that intelligence officials were pressured by senior administration officials to conform their threat assessments to pre-existing policies.” The Carnegie analysts also found “no solid evidence” of a […] Read More

2003: 9-11 was part of U.S. plot, ex-British Cabinet minister says

Orlando Sentinel – Sunday, September 7, 2003 9-11 was part of U.S. plot, ex-British Cabinet minister says. The former official, who quit in June, said America’s goal is world domination. Reuters – London A former British minister said Saturday that the United States knew in advance the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks would happen but failed to prevent them as they strengthened the U.S. bid for world domination. Writing in the Guardian newspaper, Michael Meacher, a former environment minister in Tony Blair’s Cabinet, also said Washington’s “war on terrorism” was being used as “bogus cover” for achieving wider U.S. strategic geopolitical objectives. “The global war on terrorism has the hallmarks of a political myth propagated to pave the way for a wholly different agenda – the U.S. goal of world hegemony, built around securing by force command over the oil supplies required to drive the whole project.” Meacher said the […] Read More
