Fat cat profit from Iraq war

When they attacked Daschel on his tax problem, GOP never talked a bit of how much money they embezzled from Iraq. That may be the reason why GOP is so fond of "war on terror". Because they always profit from a conflict, from fat budget of defense to profitable contract.

Ordinary people pay tax. Selected politicians vote for war. Fat cats make profit. That's US politics.

Quote, "A 'fraud' bigger than Madoff

Senior US soldiers investigated over missing Iraq reconstruction billions
By Patrick Cockburn in Sulaimaniyah, Northern Iraq

In what could turn out to be the greatest fraud in US history, American authorities have started to investigate the alleged role of senior military officers in the misuse of $125bn (£88bn) in a US -directed effort to reconstruct Iraq after the fall of Saddam Hussein.

The exact sum missing may never be clear, but a report by the US Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction (SIGIR) suggests it may exceed $50bn, making it an even bigger theft than Bernard Madoff's notorious Ponzi scheme.

"I believe the real looting of Iraq after the invasion was by US officials and contractors, and not by people from the slums of Baghdad," said one US businessman active in Iraq since 2003. ....

The end of the Bush administration which launched the war may give fresh impetus to investigations into frauds in which tens of billions of dollars were spent on reconstruction with little being built that could be used. In the early days of the occupation, well-connected Republicans were awarded jobs in Iraq, regardless of experience. A 24-year-old from a Republican family was put in charge of the Baghdad stock exchange which had to close down because he allegedly forgot to renew the lease on its building......

Often sums paid out in cash were never recorded. In one case, an American soldier put in charge of reviving Iraqi boxing gambled away all the money but he could not be prosecuted because, although the money was certainly gone, nobody had recorded if it was $20,000 or $60,000.

Poor Joe the Plumber Looks Lonely at His Own Book Signing

Posted by Melissa McEwan February 27, 2009.

Wow.

The event was scheduled to last three hours, but ended after 55 minutes, with Joe having sold a total of five books.

How media to cheat public

Though media makes him a popular figure, he is actually not a welcome man. Or he doesn't represent the grass root people. His story is only a soap opera conducted by GOP for their campaign. He became popular because media is controlled by Republican and they need to show that Republican Party supported by grass root people. But all that is only a propaganda. A book signing tells it all. After all Republican Party is for the interest of rich people, they are minor in US. They could win the election because they control the media and the intelligence. They selected politicians such like Bush by rigged election (becuase they control intelligence) and justify the result by fake poll. (they control media).

Caroline's withdraw (1/22/09)

President Kennedy was assassinated by the Feds. To prevent his family members to rise in power to investigate the truth of murder, the other member of Kennedy's family either was murdered or intimidated when they dare to gain power politically.

So we saw Robert Kennedy was murdered before he could win a president campaign. And a scandal prevented Senator Ted Kennedy to join a president election. Jacklin died early in her 60s because she knew something about her husband's death. Jr. Kennedy died in a misterious air plane accident.

Now Kennedy's daughter was intimidated when she tried to test that forbidden area. On 1/20, Ted Kennedy was sent to hospital after he had a seisure in Obama's Inauguration Ceremony. The warning was the result of an high tech. EM wave weapon. One day later, we saw the news:

Quote, "Kennedy Drops Bid for Senate Seat

1/22/09
A person who worked closely with Caroline Kennedy says her decision to abruptly withdraw her bid for New York's Senate seat was unrelated to the poor health of her uncle, Massachusetts Sen. Edward Kennedy.

http://news.aol.com/article/kennedy-withdraws-senate-bid/313916

Is that particular description - "unrelated" ridiculous?

Pentagon's psychological war on public. It has 27,000 people work to influence your opinion.

27,000 Work in Pentagon PR and Recruiting

By Noah Shachtman Email February 05, 2009
Pao_logo2

Forget the drone stuff. Here is your eye-popping statistic of the day: "This year, the Pentagon will employ 27,000 people just for recruitment, advertising and public relations - almost as many as the total 30,000-person work force in the State Department."

That's from an Associated Press investigation, "which found that over the past five years, the money the military spends on winning hearts and minds at home and abroad has grown by 63 percent, to at least $4.7 billion this year."

Quote, "Soros funds infiltration of 9/11 truth, election protection, and independent journalism

By Wayne Madsen
Online Journal Contributing Writer


Feb 20, 2009, 00:2


(WMR) -- WMR has learned from well-placed sources that international hedge fund mogul and financier of progressive causes George Soros has been, for a number of years, infiltrating 9/11 truth organizations, groups advocating election reform, and so-called independent journalism enterprises in order to hijack agendas and, eventually, cause the groups to collapse from within or be absorbed into larger organizations servile to Soros and his agenda.

By far, the largest group Soros and his allies has infiltrated and taken over is the Democratic Party of the United States. It now totally adheres to a corporatist line and has purged from its leadership Dr. Howard Dean and replaced him with Virginia Governor Tim Kaine, a Democratic Leadership Council adherent. The Soros faction and its allies has also seen to it that Bill Richardson, Caroline Kennedy, and others who represent the Democratic wing of the Democratic Party have been shut out of the Obama administration.

In many ways, Soros operation is strikingly similar to the FBIs former Counter-Intelligence Program, also known as COINTELPRO. There is also ample evidence that Soros program is linked to Israeli intelligence operations in the United States and that some presidential campaigns in 2008 were infiltrated by the joint operation, including those of Democratic candidate and former Senator Mike Gravel, and Republican candidate Ron Paul.

Soros operations, according to our sources, involve his Open Society Institute, as well as Soros Fund Management LLC, in which his son, Jonathan Soros, plays a leading role.

For Soros, his political operations in America are much the same as they are in places like Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova, Romania, and other countries: divide, confuse the political sides, and conquer.

The modus operandi is that Soros operatives either help establish progressive organizations or join them after they are established with a new infusion of a modest to substantial funding. The agenda of the organization is then altered to make it look either like a far-out conspiracy association or the infiltrators of the organization create internecine battles between factions or tamp down its fervor. In some cases, the organizations ultimately cease to exist or are combined with other Soros-controlled or influenced organizations.

In the case of alternative journalism operations, Soros operatives launch attacks, some of them highly personal, against bona fide independent journalists and question their sources and investigations. WMR has been a primary target for such operations, according to sources familiar with Soros tactics.

Soros agents of disinformation and influence have moved in to manage the stories about jailed Alabama Democratic Governor Don Siegelman, the 2004 vote fraud in Ohio, the Turkish and Israeli intelligence penetration of the highest echelons of the U.S. government, the presence of Israeli spies among the accused 9/11 hijackers in the months prior to the terrorist attacks in 2001, and Russian-Israeli Kosher Nostra criminal activity from London to Kyiv and New York to Moscow.

Overall, Soros operations are primarily focused on controlling the left through the use of censors and online gatekeepers in the media operations he funds. Recipients of Soros money are found running web sites, some of them well known; hosting TV and radio programs; and writing regularly for major periodicals.

Soros has ingratiated himself to many on the Left but that was his goal. However, there are a number of progressives who are wise to Soros operations and will continue to expose them regardless of how many more billions he amasses from shorting stocks, speculating on national currencies, and destroying jobs.

With the palindrome SOROS -- if you replace the Ss with $ -- as in $oro$, you will be left with oro, the Italian and Spanish word for gold. It sums up Mr. Soros nicely, if that is his real name, and not Goldfinger.

A prison country

Study: 7.3 million in U.S. prison system in '07
(CNN) -- A record number of Americans served time in corrections systems across the country in 2007, according to a report released Monday by the Pew Center on the States.

The U.S. correctional population -- those in jail, prison, on probation or on parole -- totaled 7.3 million, or 1 in every 31 adults.

The Pew Center on the States compiled the information from Justice Department and Census Bureau statistics.
America's prison <http://topics.edition.cnn.com/topics/prisons> population has skyrocketed over the past quarter century. In 1982, 1 in 77 adults were in the correctional system in one form or another, totaling 2.2 million people.

The United States has 5 percent of the world's population, but 25 percent of the world's prison inmates, the center said.

Investigative reporter Seymour Hersh describes 'executive assassination ring'

By Eric Black | Published Wed, Mar 11 2009
Replied Hersh:

“Yuh. After 9/11, I haven’t written about this yet, but the Central Intelligence Agency was very deeply involved in domestic activities against people they thought to be enemies of the state. Without any legal authority for it. They haven’t been called on it yet. That does happen.
"Right now, today, there was a story in the New York Times <http://www.nytimes.com/2009/03/10/world/asia/10terror.html?hp> that if you read it carefully mentioned something known as the Joint Special Operations Command -- JSOC it’s called. It is a special wing of our special operations community that is set up independently. They do not report to anybody, except in the Bush-Cheney days, they reported directly to the Cheney office. They did not report to the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff or to Mr. [Robert] Gates, the secretary of defense. They reported directly to him. ...

"Congress has no oversight of it. It’s an executive assassination ring essentially, and it’s been going on and on and on. Just today in the Times there was a story that its leaders, a three star admiral named [William H.] McRaven, ordered a stop to it because there were so many collateral deaths.

"Under President Bush’s authority, they’ve been going into countries, not talking to the ambassador or the CIA station chief, and finding people on a list and executing them and leaving. That’s been going on, in the name of all of us.

Value for torture

It's kind of funny to argue on such a moral topic. Morality can't be traded. But American enable it with a value.

Torture/waterboarding works. Yes, so are other illegal things. You will have proof that Rape/murder works too. And you can defend that FBI imposed very tight restrictions on the use of torture.....

Only please you don't accuse Hitler for Facist or Saddam for torture, because they just do same thing you approved.

And because some people who think they are the outlaw and can do what ever they want to and justify their crime by "it works" or "value".

That's why President Kennedy was assassinated, so was Rober Kennedy. And Dr. Martin L. King. Because for insiders, the victim are " subject to additional limits" and up to someone's "value".

Thanks for those who boast "patriot" admit of the two standards. Hitler, Stalin, Mao Tze Tung and Kin Jong Ir gave themseves the same right openly. That's totalitarian. Bush is justified by someone like Yoo, that's democratic. Is there any difference when they did same thing? In the name of value? Or you will find some excuse to say if it was done by "them", then it's savage, inhuman but when "I" did it, it's for the value of ... eh "pratriotism", "democracy"?

Quote, 'Swine Flu A Hoax, But Martial Law All Too Real

As officials all but guarantee deadlier form of H1N1 will return later this year, draconian response measures have been established with the aid of deceptive scaremongering and hype

Paul Joseph Watson
Propaganda Matrix
Monday, May 4, 2009

The H1N1 virus itself has claimed less lives than a normal flu outbreak would be expected to kill, but the architecture of martial law in the form of draconian measures readied to combat a pandemic has been firmly locked into place.

Health authorities are now toning down their apocalyptic predictions of a swine flu pandemic, after the virus proved to be milder than originally feared, but officials are warning that a deadlier form of the illness could return in autumn or winter.

In addition, the Department of Homeland Security has established an outline <http://www.cbsnews.com/blogs/2009/04/28/politics/politicalhotsheet/entry4975598.shtml> of how BATF, FBI, and U.S. Marshals will be called upon to impose mandatory quarantines in the event of a widespread swine flu outbreak in the U.S. Under executive order 13375, if citizens attempt to free themselves from "involuntary isolation" they will be subject to a $250,000 fine and one year in jail.

The swine flu virus has proven less deadly than the common cold in Britain and the U.S., yet the media is still awash with stories about school closures, cancelled events and every little detail about each individual case. Why is this still even in the news? Would it normally be a major national news story if you got the sniffles? The swine flu hoax has been a perfect beta-test for how the media will hype doomsday scenarios when the next pandemic occurs.

Waterboarding as Torture in U.S. Law

The former Bush/Cheney administration and its apologists in the media continue to claim that it is an open question as to whether “waterboarding” (immobilizing a person, pouring water over his/her face and breathing passages, suffocating him/her and leading him/her to believe he/she will die) is torture and forbidden in U.S. law. The question is ridiculous.

Waterboarding (as it is now called) is one of the oldest known forms of torture. In the 1500s it was used in the Spanish Inquisition.
In 1898, an American soldier (Captain Edwin F. Glenn) used the technique (then called the “water cure”) on a prisoner captured in the Philippines during the Spanish-American War. When reported, Americans were shocked and protests led to Elihu Root, U.S. Secretary of War (now called Secretary of Defense) ordered Glenn court-martialed in 1902 and imprisoned. A general under whose command this and other tortures occurred was court-martialed and removed from the army.
During WWII, both the Gestapo and some Japanese soldiers used waterboarding as a form of torture. The Japanese were tried after the war and at least one hung by U.S. forces for waterboarding U.S. Airman Chase J. Nielsen.
Waterboarding was declared illegal by U.S. generals during the Vietnam War. When a journalist photgraphed an American soldier helping two South Vietnamese soldiers waterboard a captured North Vietnames soldier, and published in the Washington Post in 1968, it caused outrage across the United States. The soldier was court-martialed and dishonorably discharged from the U.S. army.
In 1983, Texas sheriff James Parker was sentenced to ten years in prison and his deputies to four years apiece for waterboarding prisoners. When his case came up for clemency years later, then Gov. George W. Bush refused to pardon Sheriff Parker, specifically stating that no one is above the law.
In 1988, U.S. President Ronald Reagan signed the United Nations Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman, or Degrading Treatment, or Punishment of 1984. It was ratified by the U.S. Senate in 1994. Since the U.S. Constitution classifies all treaties that the U.S. signs and ratifies as sharing the Constitution’s status as “highest law of the land,” then the U.S. must follow the Convention Against Torture’s provisions, including those which demand prosecution of those who authorize and those who implement torture. It also forbids the U.S. to ship people to other countries that practice torture (”rendition”) and the Bush administration was guilty of that, also.

The reluctance of the Obama administration to try those responsible is rooted in several factors:

Such trials would be highly controversial. The Washington Post published a poll today showing that Americans are about evenly divided over whether or not to have such trials. Although law enforcement is not decided by popularity, the Obama administration has to pass many pieces of legislation that will take all the public support he can muster.
The Republicans have already hinted that if the Obama administration tries anyone in the Bush administration, they will consider it “engaging in criminalizing policy differences” and they will investigate Democratic administrations when they get back in power.

But the consequences of refusing to try these cases could be even worse:

Members of the Bush administration could be indicted by the International Criminal Court or by the courts of other nations under the “global jurisdiction” where human rights violations are concerned. This would put the Obama administration in the awkward position of either arresting and extraditing former Bush officials, including, maybe the former president himself or of defying international law. If nothing else came of that, it would, at the very least, impede Obama’s attempts to rebuild America’s alliances abroad. It also undermines his attempts to re-set our relations with the Muslim world.
Failing to prosecute violaters of human rights, no matter how highly placed, invites human rights abuses on Americans traveling abroad, whether civilian or military.
If members of the Bush administration travel abroad, they could be arrested and prosecuted by others with potential for a huge international incident.
Failure to prosecute violaters of human rights in the Bush administration makes it likely that a future administration will repeat these practices. In fact, by calling them “policy differences” GOP torture apologists are already hinting that they will restart torture when their party wins the White House, again. And their horror at the release of the torture memos as “exposing to our enemies the limits of American practices” seem to indicate they will try other practices in their place (electric shock to the genitals? bamboo shoots under fingernails? ).

Not too long ago (before 11 Sept. 2001), this was not controversial. No one argued for the U.S. using torturing. Nor did anyone argue that “enhanced interrogation techniques” were not really torture. This was not a liberal vs. conservative, left vs. right, or Democratic vs. Republican issue. So, the current debate means that America has lost its way morally. To that extent, the use of these torture techniques by the Bush administration and the fact that Americans find the use of torture or prosecution of torturers controversial, means that the terrorists have won-at least in part. Trying torturers, no matter who they are, is necessary for us to regain some degree of moral clarity.

Spies In the Classroom: The Government Is Running a Secretive Intelligence Recruitment Program in Schools

By David Price Posted June 24, 2009.

The "Pat Roberts Intelligence Scholars Program" may become a permanent budget item, making universities unwitting agents of state intelligence.
As the continuities and disjunctures between the Bush and Obama administrations come into focus it becomes increasingly clear that while Obama’s domestic agenda has some identifiable breaks with Bush’s, at its core, the new administration remains committed to staying the course of American militarization. Now we have an articulate, nuanced president who supports elements of progressive domestic policies, can even comfortably say the phrase LGBT in public speeches, while funding military programs at alarming levels and continuing the Bush administration’s military and intelligence invasion of what used to be civilian life.

The latest manifestation of this continuity came last week when Dennis C. Blair, Director of National Intelligence, announced plans to transform the Pat Roberts Intelligence Scholars Program (PRISP) from a pilot project into a permanent budget item. Blair also announced plans to establish a “Reserve Officers' Training Corps” to train unidentified future intelligence officers in US college classrooms. Like students receiving PRISP funds, the identities of students participating in these programs would not be known to professors, university administrators or fellow students -- in effect, these future intelligence analysts and agents would conduct their first covert missions in our university classrooms.

The Nobel Peace Prize for Obama

This is only a pre-prize for Obama to advise him not to go further to activate Iran war. That is what European countries wish.

US will start Iran war to save US dollar. Bush had done it before - that was Iraq war.

Now Obama is embarassed. It's hard for him to start a war after receiving the Nobel peace prize. But how can he disobey his master - the Inside Group of US? That's why GOP is angry.

Afghanistan (8/25/09)
1. Soviet failed in Afghanistan because at that time the resistence was supported by the US. They were even supplied by high tech. weapons such like anti missiles Sting.

Now there is no power to back the resistence. Without financial and weapon supply, the resistence can't last long.

2. The Al Qaida is a puppet tool of US intelligence, so is Taliban. They were comanded by Pentagon and CIA. The resistence is now used as a whip to squeeze money from people.

3. Afghanistan is now used as a replacement of Iraq. Pentagon can keep on asking for more money and troops in Mid-east. They left Iraq because Iraq is generally under control so they need it to become a steady oil supply source. They need a riot source to keep the army in Mid-east because there is another oil country to conquer - that is Iran.

4. That's how media, or the internet propaganda troops try to mis-lead your mind.

To try “mastermind of 911” in New York

1. Most people realize the 911 attack was a false flag attack done by US government to justify Iraq war.

2. To cover up the 911 plot they created 911 planners.

3. Quantanamo prison was established to create such kind of "planners" because to produce such "planners", torture and brain wash is needed. Quantanamo prison is somewhere out of law where the Feds can apply all kind of cruel method on the prisoners. Otherwise why didn't they bring the captured "suspects" to continental US?

4. It still took eight years to force or "persuade" the prisoner to admit he was the planner. What a long "education".

I think the Nigerian attempted aircraft bombing case was created to push the legislators to extend the Patriot Act.

Same thing happened in 9/11 when they want the passing through ot the Patriot act. Do you still remember the anthrax attack at that time?

Under the radar, Obama pushes for Patriot Act renewal
Feingold expresses frustration over Senate version

With key sections of the U.S. Patriot Act set to expire Dec. 31, the Obama administration - essentially tiptoeing through the corridors of Congress and using the raucous health care debate as cover - has quietly maneuvered for renewal of the controversial provisions, which he opposed as a senator.

Perhaps the most contentious measure is the business records provision, also known as the library provision, which allows the government to seek a court order forcing private entities such as banks, hospitals, and libraries to hand over "any tangible thing" - from library circulation records to medical records - officials think is relevant in a terrorist investigation.

This week, with time running out and no time to debate the bill on its merits, Democratic supporters of reauthorization in the Senate tried but fail to win House support to embed the provisions in a separate $626 billion Pentagon funding bill. The House has passed a bill with stronger civil liberties protections, but that version is not expected to survive.

Congress will now likely approve temporary extensions and deal with reauthorization early next year, giving opponents renewed hope they can still defeat or modify aspects of the national security language.

In early October, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted 11-8 to send the measure to the Senate floor. The provisions would allow the government to continue to use roving wiretaps to monitor suspects, to obtain business records of national security targets, and to track and surveil so-called 'lone wolves' whose connection to a foreign government or terrorist group has not been established.

The legislation, co-sponsored by judiciary committee chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), would tweak the ability of the FBI to gain certain personal records of citizens, requiring the agency to show "specific facts" that requested records pertain to a terrorism investigation.

Core language remains
