I have some advice for Mr Obama. If he truly wishes to find the authors of the attack which killed the Libyan ambassador Mr Christopher Stephens, then look no further than Langley Virginia, where he will also find the headquarters of the CIA.
The Libyan affair bears all the hallmarks of 'just let it happen' as beloved of the spy trade. It was the classic weapon of NATO's 'years of lead' throughout Europe in the 1970's and 80's. Intercept a plot for some dastardly deed, then look the other way. The blame can then be twisted for political motives.
Oct. 29th. In an important entry to his Landdestroyer blog on Oct. 24th, Tony Cartalucci underscores a point that is often overlooked. The present crisis in nothing new under the sun -- the Baathist government is a hereditary enemy of Islamist extremism. Hafez Assad's reputation as a brutal dictator is attributable in large part to the bloody suppression of the Moslem Brotherhood in the city of Hama in 1982.
The Turkish daily Zaman has just published a very important commentary by Mumtazar Turkone which appears to suggest that the country's soft Islamic ruling power is not quite all that it seems. For a start, anything but 'soft'. In fact more like a perpetually ruling caste in the making, whose pretences towards Islamic justice and values may not be all they seem to the surface.
An American Breivik: terror expert says Aurora shootings "in the same line as Norwegian mass killer"
The mass shooting at the screening of the new Batman movie 'Dark Knight Rising' at a theatre in Aurora, Colorado, stands in line with a similar mass murder event in Norway last June, according to the author of a new book on politically-inspired terrorism.
Robert Bales comes straight from the central casting book of stooges. Brains addled and cooked by three duty tours in Afghanistan, high as a kite on drugs, up to his neck in debt and fraud, serial groper, everything it seems but daylight bank robbery. What is he doing one ventures to ask in the US army dedicated to bring peace and enlightenment to the primitive peoples of Afghanistan, trapped in their Islamic darkness?
What is behind Kony2012 and the NGO Invisible Children? Why the drum-beating for a war on CIA counter-gangster Joseph Kony, a ghost like bin Laden who hasn't been seen for years. The short answer is OIL.
Just as I predicted, the leaders of the two main political forces in Greece – New Democracy on the Right and Pasok on the Left – are meeting quietly in the proverbial smoke filled rooms to stitch up the forthcoming elections, presently scheduled for some still unknown date in April.
I have explained countless times that the self-interested political castes – which center on two family clans, the Papandreou socialist faction and the Karamanlis conservatives – have between them thoroughly misruled Greece since the fascist junta collapsed back in 1974.
If you really believe that anarchists and thugs of such-like persuasion are responsible for the violence and rage currently tearing Greece apart, then think again. What is going on right now is orchestrated, synthetic violence stirred up by state agents in order to paint opponents of the austerity regime as little more than uncivilized, mindless morons.
