Rape of Iraqi Women by US Forces as Weapon of War: Photos and Data Emerge Daya Gamage – US National Correspondent Asian Tribune Washington, D.C. 03 October ( In March 2006 four US soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division gang raped a 14 year old Iraqi girl and murdered her and her family —including a 5 year old child. An additional soldier was involved in the cover-up. One of the killers, Steven Green, was found guilty on May 07, 2009 in the US District Court of Paducah and is now awaiting sentencing. The leaked Public Affairs Guidance put the 101st media team into a "passive posture" — withholding information where possible. The US Army's Criminal Investigation Division did not begin its investigation until three and a half months after the crime, news reports at that time commented. This is not the only grim picture coming out of Iraq U.S. forces being accused of using rape as a war weapon. At least one picture shows an American soldier apparently raping a female prisoner while another is said to show a male translator raping a male detainee.

Video: The revolution will not be firewalled: Gabriella Coleman on the ‘hacktivist’ underground | Need to Know Computer hackers have been very busy this year. On Monday, as Rupert Murdoch prepared to testify before parliament, computer wizards mocked him by planting a fake news story which claimed the media magnate had died. More seriously, earlier this month some hackers released a bunch of military data including thousands of email passwords.

Other prominent hackers include LulzSec, which was behind the hackings at and The Sun, and Anti-Sec, short for anti-security, and it’s aimed at exposing security holes in the databases of large corporations.

5 Stages of the Awakening “Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it.” -Henry Ford One of the greatest challenges to becoming Totally Free is to be able to think independently from everyone else. You know instinctively that no one cares about you, as much as you care about yourself. “In our dreams, people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hands. There is a lot of money and power derived off of having a “sucker born everyday.” “Our wretched species is so made that those who walk on the well-trodden path always throw stones at those who are showing a new road”- Voltaire Your thoughts are not your own. “Competition is a sin.” The Elite give us the illusion of freedom but control all of the choices. Every aspect of your life is monitored, regulated, taxed and controlled, not for your betterment, but for betterment of others. “Until they became conscious they will never rebel and until after they have rebelled they cannot become conscious 1. 2. ut.

New Japanese Facial Recognition Software Is Powerful, Scary Big brother alert!!! For those of you who don’t like the idea of CCTV monitoring your every move, the details a recent software breakthrough by Hitachi Kokusai Electric will probably make you soil your undergarments, or at least never leave the house without a mask. How does the idea of facial recognition software that can scan 36 million faces in one second sound? Scared yet? As pointed out by, the applications for such software are naturally aimed at surveillance programs, ones that monitor a large number of people at a given time. Scanned faces can then be searched for in other footage, allowing the watchers to monitor the selected person’s activity, provided there’s additional footage of them available. Once you have a face identified with the system, you can click the thumbnail and receive a wealth of search results, including every other clip the identified individual is in. This sounds like something the British Government would wholly embrace.

Iraq Veterans Against the War | You are not alone Norway suspect laid out detailed plans for violence against "traitors," Muslims Anders Behring Breivik saw himself as a holy warrior and crusader engaged in a war against a “Marxist-Islamist alliance” that he feared would take over Europe if not stopped. He hoped by his actions to inspire “thousands” to follow in his path. He described himself as a “martyr” and “resistance fighter.” He described members of Norway’s Labour Party as “traitors” because of their alleged support of “multiculturalism and Islamisation.” This is according to a 1,500 page manuscript Breivik himself wrote. The manuscript consists of hundreds of pages of political analysis and ideology, plus a lengthy diary-like section setting out Breivik’s meticulous planning for yesterday’s attacks. Breivik signed the manuscript in terms which suggested he viewed himself as a crusader: Andrew Berwick Justiciar Knight Commander Knights Templar Europe Knights Templar Norway Here are however a few excerpts that may shed light on Breivik’s views and motivations: “Martyr” and “resistance fighter” Testing his bomb

Freedom - A Gallery Philip Jones (RIP) – As an amateur researcher and writer, with perhaps too much time on his hands, I am fortunate to be able to devote many hours a day reading books and online articles relating to what I will call in this essay the Luciferian Conspiracy. I make no pretensions that what follows is in any way original or even innovative. Most of it excepting my own personal observations can be found in much greater detail elsewhere, and for that purpose, I have included a full bibliography and reference section at article’s end. What I have tried to do here is collect information gleaned from reading the work of such exceptional researchers as William J. Sutton, Fritz Springmeier, William F. If only four years ago, someone had made a similar assertion to me as that above, I would have raised an eyebrow or two, and politely or not, dismissed the idea. The Far Pavillions. That woman was Helena P. Blavatsky damned Yahweh as a “capricious and unjust.” As G. The Rio Earth Summit.

UK war dossier a sham, say experts | Politics Downing Street was last night plunged into acute international embarrassment after it emerged that large parts of the British government's latest dossier on Iraq - allegedly based on "intelligence material" - were taken from published academic articles, some of them several years old. Amid charges of "scandalous" plagiarism on the night when Tony Blair attempted to rally support for the US-led campaign against Saddam Hussein, Whitehall's dismay was compounded by the knowledge that the disputed document was singled out for praise by the US secretary of state, Colin Powell, in his speech to the UN security council on Wednesday. Citing the British dossier, entitled Iraq - its infrastructure of concealment, deception and intimidation in front of a worldwide television audience Mr Powell said: "I would call my colleagues' attention to the fine paper that the United Kingdom distributed... which describes in exquisite detail Iraqi deception activities."
