Top Journalist Says Hillary Approved Sending Sarin to Rebels Used to Frame Assad, Start Syrian War. In April of 2013, Britain and France informed the United Nations that there was credible evidence that Syria used chemical weapons against rebel forces. Only two months later, in June of 2013, the United States concluded that the Syrian government did, in fact, use chemical weapons in its fight against opposition forces. President Obama immediately used this chemical attack as a pretext for invasion and authorized direct U.S. military support to the rebels, according to the White House.
Since the US has been funding these ‘moderate rebels’ more than 250,000 people have been killed, over 7,600,000 have been internally displaced, and 4,000,000 other human beings have been forced from the country entirely. All of this death and destruction carried out by a sadistic army of rebels who’ve been funded and armed by the United States government, based on, what we are now told, was a complete fabrication. Advertisment When Hillary Clinton became secretary of state in 2009, the William J. How America Armed Terrorists in Syria. Three-term Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, a member of both the Armed Services and Foreign Affairs committees, has proposed legislation that would prohibit any U.S. assistance to terrorist organizations in Syria as well as to any organization working directly with them.
Equally important, it would prohibit U.S. military sales and other forms of military cooperation with other countries that provide arms or financing to those terrorists and their collaborators. Gabbard’s “Stop Arming Terrorists Act” challenges for the first time in Congress a U.S. policy toward the conflict in the Syrian civil war that should have set off alarm bells long ago: in 2012-13 the Obama administration helped its Sunni allies Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar provide arms to Syrian and non-Syrian armed groups to force President Bashar al-Assad out of power. The supporters of this arms-supply policy believe it is necessary as pushback against Iranian influence in Syria. Another Fake FBI ‘Terror Plot’: Informant Frames Cornell. 21st Century Wire says… This is potentially one of the most bogus and crass attempts yet, as the FBI rushes to grandstand over what appears to be another case of entrapment, joined by a media keen to push the fear envelope in America in the wake of last week’s international terror event in Paris.
Eager to capitalize on the media wave generated by the Paris Attacks, jobsworth FBI agents decided to accelerate the frame-up of 20 year old Christopher Lee Cornell (photo, left) from Cincinnati, Ohio, claiming the youth was planning a “pipe bomb attack” against the nation’s Capitol in Washington DC. Amazingly, US media jumped all over this story, trying to somehow tie it to Paris, and also claim that Cornell was “linked to ISIS”, and that this was somehow an “ISIS-inspired attack”, only no attack actually took place.
FOXCATCHER: Cornell as a high school wrestler. The father maintains that there is no way his son could have contrived the alleged ‘terror plot’ on his own. FBI Disrupted ISIS-Inspired Terrorism Plot It Helped Manufacture. As the Fourth of July approached, media in the United States widely reported terrorism attacks inspired by the Islamic State were possible. The FBI and Homeland Security Department had distributed a routine bulletin to law enforcement agencies warning officers to stay alert. However, there were no terrorism attacks targeting Americans on Independence Day. The only risk of terrorism came from an FBI sting operation, which agents conveniently “disrupted” on July 4.
It involved a mentally ill son of a Boston police captain. Alexander Ciccolo, a twenty-three year-old who also apparently went by the name of Ali Al-Amriki, was arrested while carrying four firearms. An FBI informant delivered Ciccolo two handguns and two rifles to Ciccolo in Adams, Massachusetts on July 4. In a memo [PDF] filed by the government requesting he remain in pretrial detention, US Attorney Carmen Ortiz states JTTF agents found partially constructed “Molotov cocktails” with “styrofoam soaking in motor oil.” Georgetown Public Policy Review / Exploring a Link Between Drone Strikes and Retaliation - Georgetown Public Policy Review.
Most of the debate surrounding the United States drone program has focused on its legality and morality, while its effectiveness as a counterterrorism strategy has gone largely unquestioned. Although groups like the Taliban and Al Qaeda continue to operate in countries targeted by U.S. drone strikes, such as Pakistan, Yemen, and Afghanistan, the notion that the strikes have been effective is seldom challenged, largely due to the difficulty of empirical testing.
My analysis questions this assumption and highlights the need for further research, showing a positive correlation between U.S. drone strikes and terrorist attacks in Pakistan. There is plenty of discussion concerning the ethics of the drone program, but the public consensus seems to have concluded that targeted killing is an unpleasant necessity in U.S. counterterrorism, particularly in areas of the world where the American public is not willing to send its soldiers. The Study T-statistics in parentheses. Is the FBI Creating Terrorists to Pad Counterterrorism Conviction Rates? (Photo: Federal Bureau of Investigation)In the case of the "Newburgh Four," for example, a judge said the government "came up with the crime, provided the means, and removed all relevant obstacles," and had, in the process, made a terrorist out of a man "whose buffoonery is positively Shakespearean in scope.
" -- from the Summary, "Illusion of Justice: Human Rights Abuses in US Terrorism Prosecutions" Let's start with a premise I think we can all agree with: There have been no 9/11-type attacks on United States soil since, well, 9/11. Here's another statement we all probably agree with: The federal government has all sorts of arrows in its quiver when it comes to gathering intelligence to thwart such attacks.
And that is where it begins to gets dicey: Unfortunately, in its counterterrorism project, the government appears to be relying more and more on perhaps the most twisted of those arrows; the use of informants, coerced and/or rewarded, entrapment, and the sting.

WASHINGTON, July 21— Central Intelligence Agency officers reviewed all seven applications made by Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman to enter the United States between 1986 and 1990 and only once turned him down because of his connections to terrorism, Government officials said today. The disclosure reveals far more extensive C.I.A. involvement than has previously been known in granting the radical Egyptian cleric an American visa on as many as four separate occasions.
Mr. Abdel Rahman's followers include central suspects in the World Trade Center bombing, and his entry into the United States followed what Clinton Administration officials have described as an appalling series of Government blunders. The failure by C.I.A. officers to identify Mr. Abdel Rahman as a potential threat in six of the seven cases is outlined in a classified version of a report by the State Department's inspector general, who is scheduled to testify about its unclassified findings on Thursday.
Mr. Mr. INTELWIRE: U.S. Secretly Met With Followers of Blind Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman Before Controversial Visa Application via. By J.M. BergerINTELWIRE.com Followers of Omar Abdel Rahman made overtures to U.S. diplomats one year before the radical sheikh entered the United States on a visa approved by a CIA agent. During several meetings with diplomatic officers at the U.S. embassy in Cairo, members of al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya (The Islamic Group) provided extensive details about the operations of one of Egypt's most notorious terrorist organizations. Initiated by al-Gama'a, the meetings were aimed at creating a dialogue with the U.S. in the hopes of eventual, unspecified cooperation.
The initiative was based on a perception that the U.S. enjoyed similar cooperation with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Less than four years after the approach, an al-Gama'a terror cell led personally by Abdel-Rahman bombed the World Trade Center in New York City.

When US government “leaders” told known lies to unlawfully invade Iraq seven years ago, they committed the crime of treason by levying war against our own soldiers and Constitution. Corporate media are complicit in treason as they also lied by commission and omission to dupe American soldiers and public into “emperor has no clothes” obvious unlawful Wars of Aggression. This article will review: 1. The public evidence proves beyond doubt that all claims for war with Iraq were known lies at the time they were told. 2. The US attack and invasion of Iraq was unlawful in Orwellian degree. 3. 4. 1. Americans and the world no longer need BELIEVE anything; the specific evidence used to justify invading two countries is now public knowledge.
First, as you may recall, there were four basic claims of fact presented by political "leadership" to invade Iraq: 1. 2. 3. 4. Here's what we know about the evidence from which those claims were made. 1. 3. Tony and Sam claim legal self-defense. 2. 3. 4. US & Britain Planned Use of Islamic Extremists to Topple Syria 57 Years Ago. Why Does the FBI Have to Manufacture its Own Plots if Terrorism and ISIS Are Such Grave Threats?
(updated below) The FBI and major media outlets yesterday trumpeted the agency’s latest counterterrorism triumph: the arrest of three Brooklyn men, ages 19 to 30, on charges of conspiring to travel to Syria to fight for ISIS (photo of joint FBI/NYPD press conference, above). As my colleague Murtaza Hussain ably documents, “it appears that none of the three men was in any condition to travel or support the Islamic State, without help from the FBI informant.” One of the frightening terrorist villains told the FBI informant that, beyond having no money, he had encountered a significant problem in following through on the FBI’s plot: his mom had taken away his passport. Noting the bizarre and unhinged ranting of one of the suspects, Hussain noted on Twitter that this case “sounds like another victory for the FBI over the mentally ill.”
Once again, we should all pause for a moment to thank the brave men and women of the FBI for saving us from their own terror plots. Photo: Mary Altaffer/AP. Fakest News: The Iraq War. Majority Are Still Falling for Fake News A new poll from YouGov shows that most Americans still believe that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction at the start of the Iraq war: That’s stunning, given that President Bush, Prime Minister Blair, the CIA, SecDef Rumsfeld, SecState Powell, National Security Advisor Rice, Bush’s chief strategist Rove, “Curveball” (the alias of the name of the unreliable WMD information) and other top officials have all publicly admitted that Iraq had no WMDs.
Corporate Media Pushed Fake News The mainstream media has confessed that they pushed the fake WMD claims. For example, the New York Times pushed fabricated evidence in the run up to the Iraq war. A year later, the newspaper apologized for its inaccurate, one-sided coverage. The Washington Post also apologized for hyping the non-existent WMD threat. CNN’s Howard Kurtz wrote: Major news organizations aided and abetted the Bush administration’s march to war on what turned out to be faulty premises.
Ex-CIA chief confirms he ignored Benghazi guidance from top officer on ground. The former acting director of the CIA, in his first public testimony on Benghazi, confirmed that he ignored guidance from the top CIA officer on the ground in favor of reporting from analysts far removed from the scene, in shaping the flawed "talking points" which said the attack sprung from a protest. Mike Morell, who served as both deputy and acting director of the agency, is under increasing scrutiny over his role in forming the administration's public narrative about the attack -- a narrative which inaccurately blamed a protest from the outset.
Morell is accused of heavily editing the so-called "talking points," which were the basis for then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice's controversial comments on several Sunday shows after the attacks that also blamed a protest. Morell, speaking before the House Intelligence Committee, insisted Wednesday he did not "deliberately" downplay the role of terrorists in that attack. He said that basis was not "compelling" enough.

(AP/Cliff Owen) Published in partnership with Shadowproof. United States officials misled the public about a Syrian terrorist group, the Khorasan Group, in the run up to air strikes in the country in 2014. The group was not new, as officials suggested, but essentially a group of reinforcements for the country’s Al Qaeda affiliate. In September 2014, just prior to a United States military strike in Syria, the mainstream media began reporting on the Khorasan Group. Even close observers of the U.S. The rest of the mainstream media echoed the AP in their reporting, and, suddenly, the homeland was facing a new existential threat.
