ISIL terrorist leader is CIA agent: Chechen president Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov says the ISIL terrorist group's leader, Ibrahim Samarrai who is known by the alias Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, works for the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and is financially supported by western secret services. "Baghdadi should take off his mask and declare loudly and clearly that he is a CIA agent, that he has been recruited,” Kadyrov said on Tuesday, adding, “They (the ISIL militants) are Shaitans (devils) and their sole obsession is to grab as much money as they can lay hands on. They are acting on orders from the West and deliberately exterminating Muslims.” The Chechen leader called on Samarrai to confess to committing atrocities including the massacre of Muslims. “He must openly confess that he is killing his brothers in faith, to apologize to his coreligionists and to disband his gang." Kadyrov further noted that the western secret services have supported the terrorists by all possible means. Close This content has been recommended to you by Yavli.

Managing a Nightmare: How the CIA Watched Over the Destruction of Gary Webb Eighteen years after it was published, “Dark Alliance,” the San Jose Mercury News’s bombshell investigation into links between the cocaine trade, Nicaragua’s Contra rebels, and African American neighborhoods in California, remains one of the most explosive and controversial exposés in American journalism. The 20,000-word series enraged black communities, prompted Congressional hearings, and became one of the first major national security stories in history to blow up online. It also sparked an aggressive backlash from the nation’s most powerful media outlets, which devoted considerable resources to discredit author Gary Webb’s reporting. Their efforts succeeded, costing Webb his career. On December 10, 2004, the journalist was found dead in his apartment, having ended his eight-year downfall with two .38-caliber bullets to the head. These days, Webb is being cast in a more sympathetic light. The charges could hardly be worse. From the subcommittee report:

February 2009 Addendum: The original version of this report has been deleted from my website. Today, I received a letter by post from a gentleman whose name was mentioned in Tim White's jailhouse letter. This gentleman apprised me that Tim White's comments about him and his family were false and libelous in nature, and he asked me to remove the parts of the letter which mentioned his name. I told him I would be more than happy to do so, knowing exactly what it feels like to be targeted for White's outrageous lies, all part of his foolish posturing and boasting about what he thinks he knows -- including about more decent, legitimate people than you could shake a stick at! Knowing Tim White to be a name-dropper, a gate-crasher and a G-Man wannabe, I can certainly understand how the fabrications about this individual by Tim White could be damaging. So here is a repost of the report, from which I have deleted Tim White's libelous comments about the person who wrote to me. February 17, 2009 Included are: Stew,

Records show mistakes, questionable evidence in woman's overturned murder case - Tulsa World: Homepage1 See related story: Tulsa woman ruled innocent after 20 years in prison Related Story: Who are the key players in 20-year-old murder case? Editor’s note: This is the first part in a two-part series examining the prosecution and exoneration of Michelle Murphy. Prosecutor Tim Harris stood before jurors deciding Michelle Murphy’s fate and told them police found someone’s blood near her slain baby’s body — blood he implied could be hers. “Ladies and gentleman, beyond a reasonable doubt this woman killed her child,” he told them. What Harris didn’t tell jurors is that as the trial started Nov. 14, 1995, he possessed a report from the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation that said Murphy’s blood type was different than the type found at the scene. A Tulsa World investigation shows the state of Oklahoma relied on faulty blood analysis, the dubious testimony of a troubled 14-year-old neighbor and an unrecorded, incriminating statement to convict Murphy. Lingering questions Incriminating Cook: “OK.

Breaking Defense - Defense industry news, analysis and commentary Zero Dark Thirty, the CIA and film critics have a very bad evening | Glenn Greenwald Just a few months ago, the consensus of the establishment press and the nation's (shockingly large) community of film critics was that Zero Dark Thirty was the best film of the year and the clear (and well-deserved) front-runner to win the most significant Academy Awards. "OK, folks, you can plan something else for Oscar Night 2013 . . . . Zero Dark Thirty will win Best Picture and Best Director (Kathryn Bigelow)," pronounced Time Magazine's Richard Corliss. "'Zero Dark Thirty' and Kathryn Bigelow won major critics' prizes on Sunday, confirming the Osama bin Laden manhunt thriller as an Oscar frontrunner," said Entertainment Weekly. The film "looks like the movie to beat right now" as the critics' awards "landscape is dominated by Kathryn Bigelow's 'Zero Dark Thirty,'" reported the Washington Post's Jen Chaney. But then political writers had begun to notice what film critics either failed to detect or just wilfully ignored. This is a rare case of some justice being done.

Handcuffed Black Youth Shot Himself to Death, Says Coroner A coroner’s report obtained exclusively by NBC News directly contradicts the police version of how a 22-year-old black man died in the back seat of a Louisiana police cruiser earlier this year -- but still says the man, whose hands were cuffed behind his back, shot himself. In a press release issued March 3, the day he died, the Louisiana State Police said Victor White III apparently shot himself in an Iberia Parish police car. According to the police statement, White had his hands cuffed behind his back when he shot himself in the back. But according to the full final report of the Iberia Parish coroner, which was released nearly six months later and obtained exclusively by NBC News, White was shot in the front, not the back. The bullet entered his right chest and exited under his left armpit. In a press release issued Monday, Dr. White’s father doesn’t believe it. “You can’t make me understand,” said Rev. William Widmer / for NBC News "He was ready to start,” said his father, Rev. Rev.

"The Most Important WikiLeak" - How Wall Street Built The Obama Cabinet Perhaps the most startling discovery of the WikiLeaks dumps so far didn't come from the most recent emails surrounding the various Hillary scandals, though there are many great ones, but from 2008 when John Podesta served as co-chair of President-elect Barack Obama’s transition team. The email came from Michael Froman, a former Citibank executive, who single-handedly built the entire cabinet of what was supposed to be the "main street" President. The email in question was even sent from Froman's Citibank email address (rookie!) and includes "A list of African American, Latino and Asian American candidates, broken down by Cabinet/Deputy and Under/Assistant/Deputy Assistant level, plus a list of Native American, Arab/Muslim American and Disabled American candidates." Apparently Obama wasn't as worried about placing women in senior-level positions but Froman decided to offer up some suggestions anyway. "While you did not ask for this, I prepared and attached a similar document on women."

ISIS Domestic Terror Threat Created by CIA and U.S. Military Eli Lake, writing for The Daily Beast, in other words Newsweek, warns that Americans fighting in Syria may soon return home and pose a serious terror threat. “The problem, U.S. counter-terrorism and intelligence officials tell The Daily Beast, is that there are just so many jihadists with Western passports traveling to fight in Syria that they worry some of them may slip back into the United States without being detected,” Lake writes. He then quotes Matthew Olsen, the director of the National Counter-Terrorism Center, who told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in March hundreds of terrorists have Western passports and they “could return to their home countries to commit violence on their own initiative or participate in al Qaeda-directed plots.” CIA’s Saudi Visa Mill Prior to the September 11, 2001, attack the CIA arranged passports and visas for veterans of its covert war in Afghanistan. Springman talked about this CIA terrorist visa factory with Alex Jones in February, 2010:

Ex-Pentagon Janitor Writes Tell-All Book Roasting Leon Panetta WASHINGTON, D.C. — A former Pentagon janitorial supervisor has become the latest D.C. insider to criticize his former boss with the release of an explosive tell-all book highlighting a Defense Department he characterized as having a lack of leadership and inability to function in a high-stakes foreign policy environment, Duffel Blog has learned. The book “Worthy Spills” by Jesus Lopez is set to be released next week, detailing former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s eating habits, his secretary’s domestic snacking issue, and even includes a a highly-critical anecdote claiming that Panetta spilled coffee all over the floor during the mission to eliminate Osama bin Laden, and he didn’t even put down so much as a napkin to mop some of it up. Critics have already slammed Lopez for what many believe is a blatant attempt to make money off his political patron as soon as the threat of being fired was removed. It was about three in the morning.

WikiLeaks Show Rothschilds Grooming Clinton for Presidency -- Months Before She Launched Candidacy Months before Hillary Clinton officially announced her bid for the presidency, the Rothschild family was hard at work helping craft her future economic policy. As Wikileaks reveals in the ongoing hugely-damaging release of John Podesta’s files, Lynn Forester de Rothschild, who maintains an incredibly cozy personal relationship with the Clintons, was already forming Hillary’s economic policy in January 2015 — long before the former secretary of state announced her candidacy. On January 7, 2015, Lady Rothschild wrote to top Clinton aide, Cheryl Mills, under the subject heading “FW: Elizabeth Warren”: “I think this blog overstates what Warren was doing, but we need to craft the economic message for Hillary so that Warren’s common inaccurate conclusions are addressed. Xoxo Lynn.” Of course, the irony of both Lady Rothschild’s concern and her heralding the “need to craft” Hillary’s “economic message” cannot be overstated.
