Obama Vows ‘Accelerated Offensive’ in Yemen

(Our Nobel Laureate president (what a joke) is ready to commit “every element of national power” to attack the people of Yemen because some FBI agent lies to the press and claims this idiot “underwear bomber” “confessed” to everything saying it was Yemen “al Qaeda” all along.  What a crock of shit. You want to know why they are attacking Yemen? Here’s why. They are attacking Yemen because of a quarter of a billion dollars in IMF and World Bank investments that are “reforming” the economy of Yemen while putting millions of people there out of work. They are attacking Yemen because of the Kuwait Energy pipelines being built all around that nation and they are afraid if the uprising continues the new government might not be so friendly to foreign raiders… I mean “investors”.  That’s why they are attacking the people of Yemen not because of some stupid “underwear bomb”.  President Obama is a neoliberal fascist thug, just like the president before him, and the one before him.  He’s a criminal and a bought and paid for sell-out.)

ABC’s “50 Grams of PETN” Video is Propaganda and I Have the Proof

They obviously haven’t done any research with their recent story about what the “underwear bomb” could have done to a plane.  What they have done is bowed to the military industrial complex and run a video based entirely on the misinformation they were given.  That isn’t journalism and you would think they would have learned their lesson after all the bullshit they “reported” in the run-up to the Iraq war.  Simply put, 50gs of PETN would NOT do that to a plane and I have the video evidence to prove it.

U.S. Intelligence Found Iran Nuke Document Was Forged

by Gareth Porter, IPS

U.S. intelligence has concluded that the document published recently by the Times of London, which purportedly describes an Iranian plan to do experiments on what the newspaper described as a “neutron initiator” for an atomic weapon, is a fabrication, according to a former Central Intelligence Agency official.

Philip Giraldi, who was a CIA counterterrorism official from 1976 to 1992, told IPS that intelligence sources say that the United States had nothing to do with forging the document, and that Israel is the primary suspect. The sources do not rule out a British role in the fabrication, however.
