EU And NATO Prepare For Invasion Into Libya With Ground Troops

April 19, 2011: Paul Joseph Watson / Prison Planet.com – April 18, 2011

Another humanitarian hoax… Remember Iraq? – SJH

The United Nations is set to rubber stamp an EU invasion force of ground troops that would be sent into Libya under the cooked up pretense of “humanitarian aid” and empowered to fight if Gaddafi forces threatened to impede their mission to “secure sea and land corridors inside the country,” another blatant attempt to legitimize the aggressive war by goading Gaddafi into attacking western troops and justifying a wider military intervention.

“The EU has drawn up a “concept of operations” for the deployment of military forces in Libya, but needs UN approval for what would be the riskiest and most controversial mission undertaken by Brussels,” reports the Guardian.

“The armed forces, numbering no more than 1,000, would be deployed to secure the delivery of aid supplies, would not be engaged in a combat role but would be authorised to fight if they or their humanitarian wards were threatened. “It would be to secure sea and land corridors inside the country,” said an EU official.

The plan is being spearheaded by the EU’s anointed foreign and security policy chief Catherine Ashton, a woman who has never been democratically elected to public office in her life, yet is now about to commit EU troops to a new war that some have warned could last anything up to 30 years.

In addition, US Army Gen. Carter Ham has said that the US is considering sending in ground troops to aid rebels. As we reported at the time, before the Orwellian “no fly zone” was even enacted, hundreds of Special Forces from Britain, America and France landed in the country to train rebel forces.

Despite the fact that the initial UN resolution specifically forbade the use of ground troops as an occupying force, that’s exactly what NATO powers have been seeking to implement for the past month, with the mass media dutifully maintaining the hoax that the entire war of aggression is in fact a humanitarian outreach.

Deliberately obfuscating the fact that Gaddafi is fighting a civil war against an army trained by British and U.S. Special Forces, the likes of the BBC and the New York Times are still, over a month into the conflict, ludicrously reporting that rebel fighters killed and injured in battle are in fact innocent civilians being indiscriminately slaughtered by Gaddafi forces.

These are the same propaganda outlets that told us at the start of the air strikes that men in military uniforms driving tanks, flying fighter jets and walking around with rocket propelled grenade launchers were “protesters,” while concocting outright fabrications about Gaddafi using western journalists as human shields.

While Obama, Cameron and Sarkozy have launched an illegal and aggressive invasion of a sovereign country and armed one side in a civil war, the media continues to flagrantly insult our intelligence by characterizing NATO bombs as virtuous tools of liberation, just as the 2003 attack on Iraq, which killed at least 1 million people, was billed at the time as an act of spreading freedom and democracy. While NATO air strikes continue to kill innocent civilians, NATO itself cites Gaddafi attacks on civilians as a reason for intensifying the bombardment.

Look at the images below of injured men arriving at a hospital in Ajdabiya. Do these men look like innocent civilians or do they look like soldiers involved in a war?

Are NATO forces really dropping bombs to protect “protesters” and “innocent civilians” or are they making the region safe for an imminent ground invasion aimed at capturing Africa’s richest oil country and turning it into another geopolitical outpost for the new world order?

As Obama, Cameron and Sarkozy have made clear, nothing less than the murder of Gaddafi is good enough. There will be no cease fire and there will be no “negotiated exit” for Gaddafi. This is about regime change – George W. Bush style.

“So this is where we’ve come to: from earnest, knitted-brow assurances of a “limited intervention” to outright declarations of open-ended war for regime change — and “accommodations” to bring in more boots, bullets and bombs “on the ground.” This is a crime, “the supreme international crime, differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole,” and it’s being committed, openly, proudly, by the Democrat in the White House,” writes Chris Floyd.

“But precisely because this “accumulated evil” is being committed by a Democrat in the White House, the “progressive” movement is silent. They don’t care. Aggressive war? They don’t care. International law? They don’t care. A blanket refusal of cease fires and peace plans that could spare countless civilian lives? They don’t care. An “active role on the ground” — new mounds of Iraq-style “collateral damage,” corpses, chaos, breakdown, extremism, brutality, suffering? They don’t care.”

AP Reports Gaddafi Accepted AU ‘Roadmap’ for Libyan Cease-Fire

leave a comment »

April 11, 2011: Peter S. Green / Bloomberg News – April 11, 2011

Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi agreed to accept an African Union peace plan that could lead to a cease-fire with rebels, South African President Jacob Zuma said in Tripoli yesterday, the Associated Press reported.

The plan that Zuma presented to Qaddafi calls for an end to fighting, cooperation in delivering humanitarian aid and talks between the rebels and the government, the news agency reported.

African Union officials didn’t insist that Qaddafi remove his troops from cities, as his opponents have demanded, AP reported. “The brother leader’s delegation has accepted the roadmap as presented by us,” Zuma said, referring to Qaddafi’s side in the talks. He called on NATO to end airstrikes to “give the cease-fire a chance,” AP reported. Zuma said he will meet today with rebel leaders in Benghazi, their stronghold in the east.

After almost two months of fighting, troops loyal to Qaddafi and rebels in the North African country, Africa’s largest oil exporter, have fought to a stalemate, with battles moving back and forth in a small area along the coast, and neither side able to take or hold territory for long. Qaddafi has vowed not to leave Libya, and a cease-fire that would keep him in power has been rejected by rebels.

‘A Good Position’

“I don’t think anybody is going to be in a good position to mediate between these sides at this point,” said Andrew Terrill, a Middle East specialist at the Strategic Studies Institute of the U.S. Army War College. People on the rebel side are totally committed to Qaddafi leaving power, and he won’t. They fear that any compromise with Qaddafi where he stays in power, he’ll put them in jail or have them executed, once he has the opportunity.”

NATO air attacks against Qaddafi’s armor and supply routes appeared to have helped rebels push back loyalists from Ajdabiya yesterday, according to the New York Times, which reported from the city that Qaddafi’s artillery was “mostly silent” and rebels retook positions throughout the town.

Airstrikes blew up 11 tanks belonging to forces loyal to Qaddafi as they approached Ajdabiya yesterday, and 14 more were hit earlier on the outskirts of Misrata. NATO strikes also left craters in the road used by Qaddafi to resupply troops shelling Ajdabiya, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization said.

Desperate Situation

“The situation in Ajdabiya and Misrata in particular is desperate for those Libyans who are being brutally shelled by the regime,” Lieutenant General Charles Bouchard, the Canadian officer commanding NATO operations over Libya, said in a statement yesterday.

“We are hitting the regime logistics facilities as well as their heavy weapons because we know Qaddafi is finding it hard to sustain his attacks on civilians,” the statement said.

NATO is enforcing United Nations resolutions that established a no-fly zone over Libya and called on member states to use force to protect civilians from attack by Qaddafi’s troops.

“The airstrikes conducted by the NATO allies seem to have been fairly effective,” Terrill said. Still, “it looks like a stalemate,” with the rebels unable to conduct any sustained military operation on their own, he said. “You wonder if we will have a de facto partition, at least for a while.”

Attack Helicopters

The Libyan government said yesterday it shot down two attack helicopters used by rebel forces over Brega, AP reported, citing Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Amin. Pro-Qaddafi forces also launched a surprise attack on rebels in Ajdabiya, shelling the town and deploying soldiers on the streets, the British Broadcasting Corp. said. Eight rebels were killed in the violence, the BBC reported, citing unidentified doctors in the city.

“I don’t see the rebels getting a lot better to the point they’ll be able to take loyalist cities,” Terrill said. Neither side seems able to extend their supply lines or attacks much further into the other’s territory, suggesting Libya may ended up partitioned, Terrill said.

That could allow the rebels time to train and equip, while Qaddafi will struggle under sanctions that could exhaust his cash, his munitions and his troops. “If the rebels can hold what gains they’ve made, time may be on their side,” Terrill said.

The rebels have been struggling to move west from their stronghold of Benghazi and take and hold strategic towns including Ajdabiya, Brega and Ras Lanuf, Libya’s main oil terminal.

Oil Production

Oil output from Libya has dropped by about 1.3 million barrels a day to a “trickle,” the Paris-based International Energy Agency said last month. Oil production would still be less than a third of its pre-conflict level even if the rebels took control of the country’s oil fields, Nomura Holdings Inc. said in a report.

Crude oil climbed above $112 in New York for the first time in 30 months on April 8. Oil for May delivery rose $2.49 to $112.79 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, the highest settlement since Sept. 22, 2008. Futures advanced 4.5 percent last week and are 32 percent higher than a year ago.

Almost four months after a 26-year-old vegetable seller set himself on fire in despair over Tunisia’s social, political and economic conditions, protesters are taking to the streets across the Arab world to demand political change.

Syrian Soldiers Killed

Nine Syrian soldiers were killed when gunmen ambushed their vehicles in the coastal oil hub of Banias, where tanks were deployed to contain protests spreading across the country, the state-run Syrian Arab News Agency reported.

In Egypt, the general prosecutor summoned ousted president Hosni Mubarak and his two sons for investigations, Al Arabiya television reported, without saying how it got the information. Yesterday, one person died and 71 were injured when Army troops tried to clear a central Cairo square of demonstrators calling for a swift trial for Mubarak and his aides.

In Gaza, Israeli and Hamas officials called for an end to four days of fighting that left 19 Palestinians dead, with each side appealing to the other to stop the shooting.

Foreign ministers of the six-member Gulf Cooperation Council meeting yesterday in the Saudi capital of Riyadh urged Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh to step down and called for a unity government. Saleh and the opposition declined to take part in the talks with GCC members Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

Street Protests

Tens of thousands took to the streets yesterday in the Yemeni capital of Sana’a and in Taiz, where clashes left at least 15 protesters dead and hundreds wounded. Demonstrators chanted “Hey Ali, you thug, what did you do last night?” Protests have gained momentum since March 18 when police and snipers killed 46 people in Sana’a.

U.S. National Security Adviser Tom Donilon will visit Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates from today to April 13, meeting Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz and Abu Dhabi’s crown prince, Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the White House said in a statement yesterday.

Libya: Another “Humanitarian” War Based On Another Pack Of Lies

leave a comment »

March 20, 2011: Tony Cartalucci / Prisonplanet.com – March 20, 2011

America once again initiates a war unconstitionally as puppet Obama vacations in Rio on the taxpayer’s dime. It is past due to impeach the imposter right now! – SJH

The corporate-financiers are dangerously flirting with their entire official narrative collapsing, as their progressive, Peace-Prize wearing puppet President Obama and the “radical reformer” David Cameron lead yet another war based on an Iraq-style pack of lies.

After weeks of peddling a litany of verifiable lies, the West has forgone any attempt to justify or veil their actions in legitimacy and has decided to go ahead with a UN rubber-stamped “no-fly zone.” Far from having anything to do with preventing Qaddafi’s planes from flying, the no-fly zone has translated into full-scale missile and aerial bombardments across Libya aimed at turning the tide for freshly rearmed Western-backed rebels.

The Pack Of Lies

Indeed, the same London Telegraph now dashing across their headlines “Britain and America have rained missiles on Libya as Col Muammar Gaddafi defied the world and continued to attack civilians,” told us in the early stages of the US-backed Libyan unrest that Qaddafi had fled to Venezuela, citing “credible Western intelligence sources.

Of course, evidence that Qaddafi has been “attacking civilians” has not yet been produced in any way, shape form with US Department of Defense’s Robert Gates and Admiral Mullen in fact, both confirming “We’ve seen no confirmation whatsoever.” Additionally, BBC made an apparently little read footnote that their reports were impossible to verify.

BBC states in their article “The difficulty of reporting from inside Libya:” “The BBC and other news organisations are relying on those on the ground to tell us what’s happening. Their phone accounts – often accompanied by the sound of gunfire and mortars – are vivid. However, inevitably, it means we cannot independently verify the accounts coming out of Libya. That’s why we don’t present such accounts as “fact” – they are “claims” or “allegations”.”

Apparently “claims” and “allegations” are all the UN needed to rubber stamp yet another globalist war of conquest as they continue to sew together their one world government.

The Russian government went as far as bringing forth evidence that suggests such air strikes never even took place. As for the globalist-run media’s claims that Qaddafi fled to Venezuela, of course, Colonel Qaddafi is still obviously in Libya.

Even the globalist International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) made note in their 1 hour and 20 minute military briefing, that Libya’s Qaddafi was most likely going through extraordinary measures to avoid excessive civilian loses, so as to not play into the West’s desire for military intervention…

The Conflict In Libya And Military Options For The International Community

When the globalist policy wonks speak frankly, outside the short-attention span of the general public, they talk of Qaddafi’s professional forces taking special care to avoid civilian casualties knowing full well it will fuel calls for Western intervention. (@16:26)

Now, the typical ploy of accusing besieged nations of using “human shields” is already being oafishly employed by the likes of the Independent in their article “Libya: The UN strikes back.” The very title itself is misleading, as the UN was merely a tool used to justify and authorize an otherwise unacceptable war the US and UK populations would have categorically refused to enter. The ability for the US to circumvent its constitution (Article I, Section 8, Clause 11) along with the will of the American people points the finger of “illegitimacy” toward the West at least as much as it is being pointed at Libya’s Qaddafi.

What Can Be Confirmed?

What we can confirm, is that the entire Libyan rebel movement has been backed by the US and UK for nearly 3o years. We can confirm that the initial calls for a Libyan “Day of Rage” came not from the streets of Benghazi, but from the London based National Conference for Libyan Opposition (NCLO). We can confirm that NCLO leader Ibrahim Sahad was literally sitting in front of the White House giving an interview to the Western media in the opening stages of the Libyan unrest, parroting verbatim the West’s desire to militarily intervene with a no-fly zone…

Sahad: Gaddafi Will Not Survive Protests

Libyan opposition NFSL/NCLO leader Ibrahim Sahad, parroting the globalist calls for intervention in Libya, sits in front of the White House in Washington D.C.

We can also confirm that confessed terrorists like Noman Benotman, who had previously consorted with both the MI6 and Osama Bin Laden, are now offering their full support for the armed rebels in Libya. Ironically, Benotman’s support for armed militant rebels, including released Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) members, manifests itself through the “Quilliam Foundation,” which was founded in part to disband and disavow armed militancy.

It is quite clear that the globalists had decided part of their US State Department sponsored “Arab Spring” would include removing Libya’s Qaddafi from power. No reality on the ground will prevent the globalists from achieving this goal, including the necessity to send troops on the ground if the current bombing and missile campaign fails to tip the balance in the Libyan rebels’ favor. The corporate owned media has descended to a new level of unprecedented, shameless propaganda to hammer their misshapen agenda into an ill-fitting reality.

Remember Fukushima

The globalist “international community” and mandate has never been more clearly illegitimate, squandered, and abused than it is now. While Japan suffers the worst catastrophe in its history, a catastrophe that includes the largest recorded earthquake in human history, a devastating tsunami and multiple nuclear meltdowns, the West pursues with the entirety of its resources, energy, and influence a war of profit and expansion in Libya – under the poorly dressed guise of “humanitarian concerns.” As it has been pointed out, such concerns are unverified and entirely based on what the BBC itself calls “allegations” and “claims.” Meanwhile, an irrefutable, unprecedented humanitarian disaster unfolds in northeastern Japan.

As if meddling in a foreign nation’s affairs based on a pack of lies isn’t bad enough, doing so when resources are desperately needed amidst a real disaster amounts to the zenith of criminal negligence. The West once again proves they are the greatest purveyors of crimes against humanity, through simultaneous action in Libya, and inaction in Japan.

Such irresponsible leadership, with such self-serving priorities that clearly leave the vast majority of humanity out in the cold does not deserve our respect, our obedience, or our support. Identify the corporate-financier oligarchs that make up this malicious self-appointed “global consensus” and put them out of business via a full-spectrum boycott and by replacing them permanently on a local level. While millions suffer in Japan and millions are in danger in Libya today, failing to strip these tyrants of their unwarranted influence will inevitably ensure the suffering and danger comes to you.

DHS: Al Qaeda Cave Dwelling Ninjas Resurface For Holiday Season

leave a comment »

December 16, 2010: Intel Hub Editor (Alex) / The Intel Hub – December 16, 2010

As expected, right on cue for this holiday season by DHS and the CIA with their annual booga, booga cheer! – SJH

Officials with the Department of Homeland Security are following leads and raising the terror level as Al Qaeda threatens new attacks during the Christmas holidays.

This is almost laughable. These supposed terror threats are in reality completely exaggerated scare tactics used to push the threat of non existent cave dwelling ninjas.

Al Qaeda [the base] was created by our government to fight the Soviets in Afghanistan, as [has been] admitted by multiple mainstream news outlets.

Iraqi officials have claimed that captured insurgents have told them of a plan to commit suicide attacks in the United States and Europe. This has prompted government officials to contact state and local authorities about the threat and to remain vigilant and look for any suspicious activity.

CBS/AP – “Counterterrorism officials are tracking threats to the U.S. and Europe from al Qaeda and affiliated groups during the holiday season but have not yet seen evidence of specific plots aimed at the U.S., authorities said…

“The FBI and Homeland Security Department have alerted state and local law enforcement to be wary of suspicious behavior and to regularly change security measures to interfere with any terrorist plans. The warning was sent in a Dec. 15 bulletin obtained by The Associated Press. It did not include information about specific plots or intelligence.”

CBS News and The Associated Press are reporting that these terror threats are unfortunately keeping Americans on edge. What is clear is that the government and these media outlets WANT Americans to be on the edge so they can continue their illegal TSA measures and police state tactics used in the name of fighting terror…

“There is specific intelligence of attacks being planned against Europe during the holiday season. While intelligence officials have not uncovered specific details of threats aimed at the U.S., they cannot be ruled out, according to U.S. officials speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss security matters…

“Still, the spate of attempted attacks against the U.S. in the past year – particularly the Nigerian man charged with trying to take down an airplane last Christmas Day – has U.S. officials on high alert.”

What does the lame stream media not understand? Last year’s Christmas Day Bomber was let on the plane by a well dressed intelligence official. This so called conspiracy theory was later confirmed by the State Department.

We must remain ever vigilant throughout the Holiday season as the possibility of a staged event has increased exponentially.

Update: Interpol has confirmed they have been warned of Al Qaeda terror plots in the United States and Europe. Let the fearmongering begin! [http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-12013182]

Suspicious “Items” Were Headed For Chicago Religious Institutions

leave a comment »

October 29, 2010: Chicago CBS Local.com Editor’s / Chicago CBS Local.com – October 29, 2010

Updated October 29-31, 2010 – SJH

CHICAGO (CBS) – Authorities stopped two cargo planes with suspicious packages onboard, after learning the items were being sent from Yemen to synagogues in Chicago. Federal officials say two packages from Yemen that were rigged in some way were found on cargo planes. One was a UPS plane stopped in the UK. The other was a FedEx plane stopped in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. A U.S. official told CBS News both planes were searched in response to a specific warning that they were carrying suspicious packages addressed to synagogues or Jewish centers in Chicago.

The Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago was notified of the situation at 10:30 a.m. Friday, and officials there are “taking proper precautions,” said associate vice president Linda Haase. The organization is also advising local synagogues to take precautions, Haase said. Meanwhile, CBS News reports all UPS flights have been grounded. A law enforcement source tells CBS 2 Chief Correspondent Jay Levine the word is out to synagogues in Chicago not to accept UPS packages from east of New York. They are asked to call Chicago Police if any delivery is attempted.

FBI spokesman Ross Rice added that while there are no identifiable or specific threats to the Chicago area, all churches, synagogues and mosques in the area are being warned to be vigilant for unsolicited or unexpected packages, especially those originating from overseas locations. Authorities say the UPS plane was headed to Chicago from Yemen, and had on-board an ink toner cartridge that looked like it had been converted into a bomb (pictured above). The plane was stopped in the UK Thursday night, CNN reported.

U.K. officials discovered that the toner cartridge had been manipulated and found wires attached to it and white powder. Tests on the device came back negative for explosives, according to a law enforcement official who also spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the investigation. The UPS plane was held at East Midlands Airport, near Nottingham, England. Police and emergency workers examined the package and lifted the security cordon by mid-morning, but Leicestershire Constabulary later said officers were re-examining it “as a precaution.”

Sarah Furbank, a passenger who was about to board a plane out of East Midlands Airport, said that she had noticed an increased security presence. There were “quite a few police cars round the edge” of the airport, Furbank told The Associated Press. “Apparently there was an incident earlier according to staff but they didn’t go into detail.” Additional information is not known about the FedEx plane in Dubai.

President Barack Obama was notified of the potential terrorist threat Thursday evening, and “directed U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies, and the Department of Homeland Security, to take steps to ensure the safety and security of the American people, and to determine whether these threats are a part of any additional terrorist plotting,” according to a statement from White House press secretary Robert Gibbs.

“The president has received regular updates from his national security team since he was alerted to the threat,” Gibbs added. President Obama is set to make a statement on the incident at 3:15 p.m.

Other cargo planes around the U.S. and the world were also searched as a precaution because they carried packages originating in Yemen. Specifically, law enforcement officials packages on two cargo planes in Philadelphia and one in Newark, N.J. One of the flights to Philadelphia was coming in from Paris. The other from Cologne, Germany, and was scheduled to go on to Louisville, Ky.

Police also stopped a UPS truck with a package on New York’s Queensboro Bridge into downtown Manhattan. Some experts said the incident might have been a dry run to test security on cargo planes.

The Tonka Report Editor’s Note: This is a fucking joke! Does anyone actually believe this manufactured booga booga? This is clearly a false flag pre-election reminder that Yemen is in Israel’s, thus their compliant slaves in America’s crosshairs! Mossad, MI6, CIA, FBI and the IDF are comically lacking in creativity.

Let’s ponder a few fundamental questions: Who tipped off the intelligence agencies around the world to these “suspicious items” if no bomb sniffing dogs were alerted? Who else but these very same intelligence agencies could orchestrate such an obvious production? Now reports have come in that bomb material has been found in Dubai that allegedly originated in Yemen to give “creedence” to this worldwide false flag “terrorism” alert…

The Chicago Police also reported that the FBI said tests on the suspicious packages had all come back negative for any bomb explosive materials and posed no immediate threat. Then, Obama contradicts this in his speech.

Iran Geo-Political Chess Game By Invoking 9/11 A US Checkmate?

with one comment

October 11, 2010: Eric Blair / Activist Post – October 11, 2010

Let’s set up the geopolitical chess board for a moment. Iran is a rogue nation according to the Western world. Which basically means that they sit on a sea of oil and don’t comply with the demands of the Western-based multinational oil firms. Iran has also made strong alliances with America’s oil-thirsty quasi-enemies China and Russia, while finding a partner-in-rogue in Venezuela.

To further aggravate the West’s agenda for global dominance, Iran’s banking system is not compliant with the private international banking cartel, therefore they can’t be enslaved by debt — the preferred method of ensuring nonviolent compliance. However, the West has recently captured a banking pawn by blacklisting the Iran-owned German-based EHI Bank under the authority of economic sanctions and accusations of benefiting from “weapons proliferation.”

Oh, and you may have also heard that Iran has achieved nuclear power against the will of the West — which seems to be the only storyline we’re allowed to discuss in the mainstream media — when will they have a nuclear weapon and how, when, and what is Israel and the West going to do to stop them?

Saturday’s Associated Press release summarized the current situation which is unfolding more like a spicy espionage novel everyday with embedded spies, highly developed computer viruses, and CIA kidnapped defectors refusing to be spies and much more diabolical intrigue:

“In recent weeks, Iran has announced the arrest of several nuclear spies and battled a computer worm that it says is part of a covert Western plot to derail its nuclear program. And in July, a nuclear scientist who Iran says was kidnapped by U.S. agents returned home in mysterious circumstances, with the U.S. saying he was a willing defector who was offered $5 million by the CIA but then changed his mind.

“The United States and its allies have vigorously sought to slow Iran’s nuclear advances through U.N. and other sanctions out of suspicion that Tehran intends to use a civil program as cover for developing weapons. Iran denies any such aim and says it only wants to generate nuclear power.”

Although Iran has always maintained that its nuclear program is for civilian energy purposes, it seems that if you’re a country who possesses natural resources like oil and wish to remain a sovereign nation, you must at least give the appearance of being capable of defending against outside threats — much like Saddam’s apparent illusiveness but actual impotence regarding Iraq’s WMDs. Ultimately, the West wanted Saddam’s resources, so they just took them by force.  And now, the West’s oil companies are being “awarded” with rich drilling contracts. In other words, checkmate.

The AP article also made breaking news that Iran has agreed to nuclear talks with the U.S. and other U.N security council countries:

“Tehran said Saturday that it was ready to hold nuclear talks with the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council – the U.S., Britain, France, Russia, China – as well as Germany in late October or early November. Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said the precise date was being discussed by the sides.”

Why is Iran now willing to have open discussions with the U.S. and the security council? Could it be that Iran finally feels like they have their foe’s king in check? It seems the move that puts them in this new found power position was Ahmadinejad using the grand U.N. stage to question the official events of 9-11, thus the pretext to invade Muslim lands. He laid out the following three scenarios about 9-11 which prompted the U.S. delegation to walk out in protest:

1 – That a “powerful and complex terrorist group” penetrated U.S. intelligence and defenses.

2 – “That some segments within the U.S. government orchestrated the attack to reverse the declining American economy and its grips on the Middle East in order also to save the Zionist regime. The majority of the American people as well as other nations and politicians agree with this view.”

3 – And, that the attack was the work of “a terrorist group but the American government supported and took advantage of the situation.”

It appeared that the establishment media didn’t really know how to handle Ahmadinejad’s comments. Of course they did their best to attack and label him as a conspiracy theorist, but they didn’t want the story to get too loud.  Since the media blackballs any guests that question 9-11 and violently shouts down anyone who dares bring up the subject, they’ve been able to essentially ignore and shape the topic as ludicrous.

Obama did his part to discredit Ahmadinejad’s statements by calling them “hateful” and “offensive.” Finally, the establishment media also tried to create the absurd impression that, “If you want further investigation into the biggest terror event ever, you must be with the terrorists and Ahmadinejad.” It seems that they are desperately running out of moves.

In turn, the problem for the establishment’s version of events is that the polls show Ahmadinejad to be correct that the majority of the global population now questions 9-11. One does not have to necessarily believe in any of the competing “conspiracy” theories to be 100% sure the official account is bogus. That’s precisely what gives Iran power. A power they used again recently when a spokesman for the Iran Foreign Ministry reiterated the claim that more than fifty percent of Westerners were now “suspicious” of the “dubious” nature of the 9-11 event, as reported by Press TV:

“Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast says half of people in Europe and America are suspicious of the September 11 events in the United States.

“’Many in the West blame the US government in the occurrence of the September 11 incident,’” IRNA reported Mehmanparast as saying at a press conference in the Iranian city of Isfahan on Thursday.

“He also made a reference to the recent visit of the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to New York for a United Nations General Assembly session on the UN’s Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and said President Ahmadinejad’s ‘trip to the UN was a good opportunity to set forth Iran’s public diplomacy, which conveyed Iran’s message to the world.’”

“The spokesperson further pointed to the ‘dubious’ nature of the 9/11 event and said, ‘The US government needs to allow for the clarification of ambiguities regarding the incident and to refrain from jumping into hasty conclusions.’”

So, the more the establishment media continues to forcefully squash any legitimate questions about the greatest crime in modern history, the more guilty they appear of a cover-up.  Protecting their fictional account that was used to justify endless preemptive wars, torture, and the illegal surveillance of American citizens is becoming an impossible defense tactic. And Iran, armed with the truth that the official story is clearly untrue, now seems to have a stronger board position.

It will be interesting to watch if the West makes any concessions in the coming nuclear talks, and if Iran quits stoking the 9-11 truth debate — “we’ll keep quiet about 9-11 if you loosen some of the draconian sanctions on our country.”

Treason: Pelosi Blocks Independent Gulf Oil Disaster Investigation

leave a comment »

July 29, 2010: Connie Hair / Human Events – July 29, 2010

The latest version of the CLEAR Act is slated for a floor vote in the House this week as Democrats look for ways to use the Gulf oil spill as a means to pass elements of their unpopular energy agenda. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) stripped out authorization for an independent investigation into the Gulf disaster. 

The Natural Resources Committee unanimously passed the amendment in committee markup July 14 offered by Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) that would establish a bipartisan, independent, National Commission on Outer Continental Shelf Oil Spill Prevention. Unlike the commission set up by President Obama — packed only with environmental activists and no petroleum engineers — the commission unanimously approved by the Natural Resources committee would be comprised of technical experts to study the actual events leading up to the Deepwater Horizon disaster.

Not a single member of the committee voiced opposition at the bill’s markup.  The Senate has also approved an independent commission. “To investigate what went wrong and keep it from happening again, the commission must include members who have expertise in petroleum engineering.  The President’s Commission has none,” Cassidy, the amendment’s author, told HUMAN EVENTS after the announcement.  “It defies common sense that this amendment passed unanimously in committee, only to be deleted in the Speaker’s office.”

Rep. Doc Hastings (R-Wash.), top Republican on the Natural Resources Committee said the Obama administration’s commission was set up to protect the President. “By deleting the bipartisan, independent oil spill commission that’s received bipartisan support in both House and Senate committees, Democrats have shown they are more interested in protecting the President than getting independent answers to what caused this tragic Gulf spill.  Some of the biggest failures that contributed to the Gulf disaster are the direct responsibility of the federal government and by deleting this bipartisan, independent commission, Democrats ensure that only the President’s hand-picked commission will be digging into any failures of his own Interior Department appointees.  There is widespread agreement that no member of the President’s commission possesses technical expertise in oil drilling, and several are on the record in opposition to offshore drilling and support a moratorium that will cost thousands of jobs,” Hastings said.

The bill also sets up myriad regulations and new standards and laws for drilling that have nothing to do with offshore drilling. “Even more outrageous is this bill’s attempt to use the oil spill tragedy as leverage to enact totally unrelated policies and increase federal spending on unrelated programs by billions of dollars. What does a solar panel in Nevada, a wind turbine in Montana, uranium for nuclear power, or a ban on fish farming have to do with the Gulf spill? Nothing — but the spill is a good excuse to try and pass otherwise stalled or unpopular new laws,” Hastings said.

Another member of the committee, Rep. John Fleming (R-La.), pointed out the hand-picked Obama commission is just getting underway with no findings or recommendations made. “This ‘fix it’ bill is being rammed through without an accurate and full understanding of what actually went wrong. The Presidential Commission is just barely beginning its work, no investigations are yet concluded, and the failed [blowout preventer] still on the ocean floor, yet we are voting on a bill without knowing what went wrong,” Fleming said. 

“Furthermore, at a time when Washington should be focused on creating jobs, this bill will do just the opposite by hampering future energy development and stifling job creation along the Gulf Coast,” Fleming added.  “This knee-jerk legislation — coupled with the Administration’s damaging Moratorium on offshore drilling — will worsen, not help, the situation.” Yet the House is poised to vote this week on the CLEAR Act, likely Friday. “This bill has less to do with preventing another spill than it does preventing domestic energy production,” Cassidy said.

UPDATE: House Republicans released bullets on the CLEAR Act this morning breaking down some of the measures included in the bill, including:

– Imposes job-killing changes and higher taxes for onshore natural gas and oil production. It fundamentally changes leasing onshore by the Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management, which affects not just leasing for natural gas and oil, but also for renewable energy including wind and solar. Forest Service and BLM leasing are shoved into the three new agencies that are replacing the former Minerals Management Service (MMS).

– Creates over $30 billion in new mandatory spending for two programs that have nothing to do with the oil spill (the Land and Water Conservation Fund and the Historic Preservation Fund). In the version of the bill headed to the House floor, Democrats added brand new language that expressly allows this $30 billion to be earmarked by the Appropriations Committee.

– Raises taxes by over $22 billion in ten years – with the taxes eventually climbing to nearly $3 billion per year. This is a direct tax on natural gas and oil that will raise energy prices for American families and businesses, hurt domestic jobs, and increase our dependence on foreign oil. This tax only applies to U.S. oil and gas production on federal leases – giving an advantage to foreign oil and hurting American energy jobs.

– Requires the federal takeover of state authority to permit in state waters, which reverses sixty years of precedent. The mismanagement, corruption and oversight failures of the federal government are being used as justification to expand federal control by seizing management from the states.

– Allows 10% of all offshore revenues – an amount possibly as high as $500 million per year – to be spent on a new fund controlled by the Interior Secretary to issue ocean research grants (ORCA fund). There is no requirement that the fund is used for the Gulf region or anything related to oil spills or offshore drilling. These funds can be earmarked. More at the link.
