‘CIA fingerprints’ all over Kiev massacre – Oliver Stone. Published time: January 01, 2015 12:11 Edited time: January 02, 2015 05:09 US film director Oliver Stone. (AFP Photo / Rafa Rivas) The armed coup in Kiev is painfully similar to CIA operations to oust unwanted foreign leaders in Iran, Chile and Venezuela, said US filmmaker Oliver Stone after interviewing Ukraine’s ousted president for a documentary.

Stone spent four hours in Moscow talking to Viktor Yanukovich, who was deposed from power during the February 2014 coup, the filmmaker wrote on his Facebook page. “Details to follow in the documentary, but it seems clear that the so-called ‘shooters’ who killed 14 police men, wounded some 85, and killed 45 protesting civilians, were outside third party agitators,” he said.

Videos From Ukraine that The U.S. Media Will Never Show You. Pierre Omidyar co-funded Ukraine revolution groups with US government, documents show. By Mark Ames On February 28, 2014 Just hours after last weekend’s ouster of Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych, one of Pierre Omidyar’s newest hires at national security blog “The Intercept,” was already digging for the truth.

What’s shocking is the name of the billionaire who co-invested with the US government (or as Wheeler put it: the “dark deep force” acting on behalf of “Pax Americana”).

Step out of the shadows…. [Update: Wheeler has responded on Twitter to say that her Tweets were taken out of context, but would not give specifics. Ukrainian Neo-Nazis Declare that Power Comes Out of the Barrels of their Guns. Reality on the ground in Ukraine contradicts the incompetent and immoral Obama regime’s portrait of Ukrainian democracy on the march. To the extent that government exists in post-coup Ukraine, it is laws dictated by gun and threat wielding thugs of the neo-Nazi, Russophobic, ultra-nationalist, right-wing parties. Watch the video of the armed thug, Aleksandr Muzychko, who boosts of killing Russian soldiers in Chechnya, dictating to the Rovno regional parliament a grant of apartments to families of protesters. Read about the neo-nazis intimidating the Central Election Commission in order to secure rule and personnel changes in order to favor the ultra-right in the forthcoming elections. Thug Aleksandr Shevchenko informed the CEC that armed activists will remain in CEC offices in order to make certain that the election is not rigged against the neo-nazis.

Tinkering with the affairs of other nations is a dangerous and unpredictable game. You've probably heard about the leaked audio where the Victoria Nuland from the U.S. State Department got caught saying "F*@k the E.U.
